DOJ luvs them some "gutsy" reporters -

Except when they don't!

From I'm 41 - Jake Tapper calls out Department of Justice spokesman for tweet about journalists arrested in Ferguson -

CNN's Jake Tapper harnessed his right to free speech perfectly Wednesday by calling out the Department of Justice for superficially standing up for the First Amendment rights of the press.

Brian Fallon, who is the Office of Public Affairs director at the Department of Justice, took to Twitter Wednesday to support journalists Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post and Ryan Reilly of The Huffington Post, both of whom were arrested while covering the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, this week.

"DOJ is lucky to have a gutsy reporter like @ Ryanjreilly on our beat. We knew that even before tonight. Glad he and @ WesleyLowery are ok," Fallon tweeted.

Jake Tapper responded to Fallon, highlighting the ironic fact that the Department of Justice is currently threatening a New York Times journalist -- James Risen -- with jail time if he refuses to give up an anonymous source for details about the CIA in his 2006 book.

Tapper tweeted, "@ brianefallon how do you distinguish between the 'gutsy' reporters and the one the administration is threatening to put in jail?" More here.

On to the DOJ - Office of Public Affairs to get a better idea of what Brian Fallon's responsibilities might be I got distracted by an article posted there today - Statement by Attorney General Eric Holder on Latest Developments in Ferguson, Missouri. An excerpt:

"At a time when we must seek to rebuild trust between law enforcement and the local community, I am deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles sends a conflicting message. At my direction, Department officials have conveyed these concerns to local authorities. Also at my direction, the Department is offering - through our COPS office and Office of Justice Programs - technical assistance to local authorities in order to help conduct crowd control and maintain public safety without relying on unnecessarily extreme displays of force. The local authorities in Missouri have accepted this offer of assistance as of this afternoon."

Deployment? A strange choice of words from Mr. Holder and I don't seem to remember him having voiced a "concern" about the 9,000 members of law enforcement (FBI, HLS, ATF, State PD, City PD, military police, anti-terrorist swat teams) "deployed" in Boston to lock that city down as they hunted for one - ONE - person, the second Tsarnaev brother.

Our government has sold as much "surplus" military equipment as possible at bargain basement prices to every podunk town in this country. They provide training, they encourage the macho police state attitude. What has been done to erode this "trust" is owned by our jihadist-in-chief Hussein Obama and his administration. Period.

When is a black man not a black man?

When he is a fully functioning human being, full of passion, compassion, clarity of right and wrong. Responsible. A seeker of truth. He is not of any color.

"The fully human person is his own person, he does not bend to every wind which blows, he is not at the mercy of all the pettiness, the meanness, the impatience and anger of others. Atmospheres do not transform him as much as he transforms them. In a fully human person, there is a balance of senses, emotions, intellect and will." John Powell

Such a person is Johnathan Gentry. He happens to be black and he is speaking to a black issue, but his message of "change" applies to all of us when something is wrong. We have to step up to the plate and change things ourselves or risk giving up our power to effect change to others.

Trains - Planes - Ebola


8/8/14 The Ebola of 2009: Swine Flu by Jon Rappoport

Every new "pandemic" is the big one.

"This isn't like the last one, oh no. This one is really going to spread out across the globe and kill millions and millions of people."

Ebola. MERS. Swine Flu. Bird Flu. Smallpox. SARS. West Nile.

We're still here. Do you think you can rely on government reports about diseases? Continue here.

8-11-14 Ebola: why hasn't a pandemic ever started in Brooklyn? by Jon Rappoport

As my readers know, I've written a number of articles on the grossly misleading science connected with Ebola.

When you have: useless and false diagnostic tests; people with "Ebola" symptoms who are actually sick for reasons that have nothing to do with a virus; and a global PR machine that launches more lies per hour than a two-bit hustler at the racetrack; you can rev up a "global epidemic" purely on the basis of invented storyline and image.
This article is about the Ebola psyop. The imagery. The storyline. Selling it.

Premise One: "The virus comes from Africa. Uh oh. Woo. Watch out."

'HIV came from Africa. Uh oh. Watch out." Continue here.

I am "out of the office" now until about Wednesday. What to leave you with. These reads are only a little time consuming, but worth it. We must educate ourselves rather than just "learn" from what the media and politicians want us to know! Do I have masks packed? You betcha!

These articles were written by Jon Rappoport: Author and lecturer he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1982, has worked as an investigative reporter for 30 years, writing articles on politics, medicine, and health.

7/31/14 Is it Ebola or is it psychological warfare?

How much more will we take?

Two nights ago in a comments section where that same question was asked I responded:

As much as "our" jihad-in-chief cares to dish out to us.

How often have we said of Hussein Obama that his actions speak louder than his words?
The same must be said of We, the People.

He floods our country with illegal "children" bringing devastating diseases - the same illegals who will begin classes with our children in one month.
Lots of talk from We, the People. No action.
He brings ebola to this country.
Lots of talk. No action.
If we are going to do nothing to protect our children the game is over.
Our actions (none) speak volumes - he knows it - his jihad is nearly complete.

Then last night I ran across this - it is worth taking the time to read:

Organized Community Defense Is America's Last Hope

Not long ago, I felt compelled to address the idea of self defense as a moral imperative in an article titled "Violence In The Face Of Tyranny Is Often Necessary." My intention was to perhaps undo some of the propaganda conditioning that Americans have suffered over the decades that has taught them that "all" forms of violent action are "immoral", including the defense of one's person, one's property, and one's freedom.

The recent uprising at Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., confirmed my predictions that many Americans are tired of playing by rules chartered by the establishment and are ready to take measures outside of the boundaries set by the system. The reality is that change will never come without consequence and cost, and when faced with an entrenched tyranny, if the citizenry cannot present the threat of physical consequence to their oppressors, the oppressors have no motivation to relinquish power.

To use the schoolyard analogy yet again, it is a fact of life that the class bully will not leave a victim in peace because he is enthralled with the feeling of power over others. The bully will not stop because he has no incentive. Protesting only encourages him. Using the system as a shield only amuses him. Logic and reason only anger him. Punching the bully in the teeth is the only incentive he will respect. If you show that you can disrupt a tyrant's abuse of power anytime you wish, if you show that you can hurt him back, only then will he take you seriously.

There is a rather insane notion within modern activist movements that self defense represents an abandonment of higher principle. They argue that to fight is to automatically lose, and to prepare for conflict is "extreme." I would say that self defense is actually the HIGHEST principle one can value, for without the courage to physically resist tyranny, without the will required to put one's life at risk to stand against the evils of the world, ALL other principles will be lost. Even Gandhi, the man often idolized by pacifists and "non-violent" activists, recognized this fact:

Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor...

When violence] is offered in self-defense or for the defense of the defenseless, it is an act of bravery far better than cowardly submission...

"Gone Fishing" with illegals from across the border

Maybe there are still small towns where people decide on the spur of the moment to take a break and put a sign out on the front door - Gone Fishing! I don't know, I live in a big city. But I do know there are still plenty of avid fishermen in the world and fishing on nearby levees is a favorite past time of many, especially if there is no lake or stream nearby. A cooler of beer, some snacks, low lawn chairs and plenty of fat to be chewed. It doesn't get much better than that.

Now, maybe fishing on the levee is not such a smart thing to do thanks to the jihad of Hussein Obama.

"If the American people knew about this, there would be an uprising!" Border - Illegals - Disease - Ebola

Watch what is in my left hand (border, illegals, disease, ebola) fools! That for sure is plenty to keep us little folk busy for a very long time.

In the meantime, the right hand hidden behind the back holds other truly horrific goings on within Hussein Obama's agencies and "if the American public knew about this, there would be an uprising!"

No. No there wouldn't. I was out demonstrating on Saturday trying to bring attention to the diseases our children will be exposed to come September - the diseases being brought across our borders with the "children." There were fifteen people besides myself from a city of half a million.

I can say with no hesitation America does not care. And if America does not care about her children she definitely is not going to care one way or another about this little ol NSA story.

The NSA's New Partner in Spying: Saudi Arabia's Brutal State Police

The National Security Agency last year significantly expanded its cooperative relationship with the Saudi Ministry of Interior, one of the world's most repressive and abusive government agencies. An April 2013 top secret memo provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden details the agency's plans "to provide direct analytic and technical support" to the Saudis on "internal security" matters.

The Saudi Ministry of Interior--referred to in the document as MOI-- has been condemned for years as one of the most brutal human rights violators in the world. In 2013, the U.S. State Department reported that "Ministry of Interior officials sometimes subjected prisoners and detainees to torture and other physical abuse," specifically mentioning a 2011 episode in which MOI agents allegedly "poured an antiseptic cleaning liquid down [the] throat" of one human rights activist. The report also notes the MOI's use of invasive surveillance targeted at political and religious dissidents.

But as the State Department publicly catalogued those very abuses, the NSA worked to provide increased surveillance assistance to the ministry that perpetrated them. The move is part of the Obama Administration's increasingly close ties with the Saudi regime; beyond the new cooperation with the MOI, the memo describes "a period of rejuvenation" for the NSA's relationship with the Saudi Ministry of Defense. Continued here.

And We, the People, just keep pumping out tax dollars into the government coffers that read: DESTROY AMERICA!

How Snowden's Revelations Have Strengthened the NSA

It has been a year since Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA.

I appreciate what Snowden did. His decision to leak the stolen documents has done the conservative movement an enormous favor. It has blown to smithereens the greatest single myth of conservatism: "If the American people knew about this, there would be an uprising." No, there wouldn't.

Here is a variation: "If the voters knew what is being done to them by the Conspiracy, they would throw out the conspirators at the next election." No, they wouldn't.

I have heard variants of these arguments for 50 years. Conservatives don't learn. They think that by exposing the Bad Guys, they will defeat the Bad Guys. They're wrong.

Snowden has proven, as no one in my era has better proved, that exposure of the Bad Guys in government has no negative effect on them.

If exposure does come, and the public does nothing to thwart the hidden Bad Guys, then the Bad Guys no longer have to worry about further exposure. It will be old news. At this point, they can do even more to secure their position of power. The pressure blows over. There may be a time of bad publicity, but this does not change anything fundamental. Continued here.

I dread to think what it is going to take for America to care.

About the Israeli IDF suicide bomber...

First, to all Israelis, please accept my apologies for writing such a horrific headline but there is a point to be made to the rest of the world. Have you ever heard of an Israeli suicide bomber? Israeli's tend to have a respect and love of life, a commitment to bettering themselves and mankind. Suicide bombers on the other hand are part of the so-called "Religion of Peace" and proudly proclaim - "We love death more than you love life."

And so it was on Friday, ninety minutes into the "humanitarian" "ceasefire" between Israel and Hamas that a suicide bomber took the lives of three IDF soldiers Benaya Sarel, Liel Gidoni, and 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin.

Goldin "was part of a group of soldiers who had found a Hamas tunnel in a rural area near Rafah overnight Thursday-Friday, and they were working on decommissioning it when they were attacked on Friday morning."

He was thought missing and kidnapped by Hamas but evidently he was so completely blown apart that it took DNA to determine that little of him actually remained on this earth.

Meantime back home at the White house - Obama condemns Hamas attack on Israeli soldiers. "A cease fire was one way in which we could stop the killing, to step back and try to resolve some of the underlying issues that have been building up over quite some time. Israel committed to that 72 hour cease fire and it was violated."

But talk is just cheap politics coming from our resident jihadist-in-chief:

Wall Street Journal Confirms That Obama is Arming Hamas Terrorists

The United States government is funding the radical Islamic terrorist group Hamas. That's the conclusion of a Wall Street Journal report that looks into the formation of a new interim coalition government that brings Hamas and the Palestinian Authority back together after several years of conflict.

The United States supports the Palestinian Authority with over $400 million annually, even though U.S. law forbids taxpayer support of any group heavily influenced by Hamas, which the State Department designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 1997. It is difficult to believe-impossible, really-that not a penny of that money will get into the hands of the radical militants currently firing rockets at civilians in Israel from behind human shields in Gaza.

"I'm not sure the people who need to hear this will ever hear it..."

This is What You are Really Telling Us - By Naomi Ragen

I'm not sure the people who need to hear this will ever hear it, but I want my conscience to be clear that I said it to them.

Dear Human Rights Activist, Leftist Liberal, Crying-for-the-poor-children, Israel-hating, Hamas-forgiving, marcher, celebrity, news anchor, journalist, writer, media star, politician, head of state. We have have seen you marching along the streets of Europe, America, and the Middle East with your signs and kfirs and Palestinian flags. We have heard you screaming to whoever will listen that Jews and Israelis are murderers, war criminals, and baby killers.

You think you are telling us who we are. But actually, you are telling us who you are.

1) You are telling us that you are ignorant.

That you don't understand that Hamas is a terror organization that took over a territory that Israel removed all its settlers from a decade ago and with good will turned over to the Palestinians, and that in return the Palestinians in Gaza elected Hamas, a terror organization, to rule them, and that Hamas has been logging bombs at Israeli civilians trying to kill them ever since.

2) You are telling us you don't really care about Palestinans or their children.

Because by supporting Hamas, you are supporting the use of Palestinians as human shields, the use of Palestinian children to dig terror tunnels in which 160 have died, and the summary execution of Palestinians by Hamas thugs whenever they open their mouths to protest the use of their homes, school, mosques, or hospitals as weapons caches and missile launching sites.

3) You are telling us that you are in favor of genocide.

Anyone who does not support Israel in this just war against Hamas, who is a genocidal terrorist organization that clearly says in their charter they want to destroy all Jews, is in fact in favor of genocide. You are telling us that you not only agree with the idea, but the practice, as Hamas is now attempting (without much success, thank God) by bombing Israelis and attempting mass murders and kidnappings through countless underground tunnels created only for that purpose. You are telling us you don't think Israelis have a right to live and defend their children by fighting back.
You are telling us you want us dead.

4) You are telling us that you hate Jews, not just Israelis.

Because otherwise, why would you march along, support, and agree with people who beat up Jews, shoot Jewish children, destroy synagogues, and smash Jewish businesses all over the world, just like the Nazis?

5) You are telling us that you are a racist and a hater.

Just one more of those evil, ignorant, bigoted, small-minded people who hate people they have never met because of their race and religion.

6) You are telling us you are ill-informed, uneducated and/or too stupid or too lazy to read history books.
Because by taking up the stance of the Nazis without even understanding in whose footsteps you are following, you are revealing you don't know where those footsteps led, and the millions and millions of people like yourselves who died because of it.

7) But most of all, you are showing God who you are and the evil that is in your heart.

For that I pity you. Because we Jews believe that God is compassionate and forgiving. But we also believe that if people repeat the same evils as their forefathers, then God's compassion ends for them, and the time for punishment begins.

You are not the first ignorant, bigoted, racist, hateful people to stand against the Jews. But you just might be the last.
By joining your voice and your body with those who hate justice, who love violence, and who follow in the footsteps of the Jew-haters throughout history, you are singling yourself out for the punishment that befalls all such people in history sooner or later. Check your history books on that one. Every people that hated Jews eventually became extinct. The Jews survived.

Looking forward to your next march, your next petition, and your next newscast to see who you are. We already know what you are.

Hussein Obama's act of jihad against America - biologicalwarfare

I have suggested in previous writings that Hussein Obama is a closet Muslim, which translates to an adherent of Islam. Some would argue that this is incorrect and that he is simply a staunch supporter. He assures us he is a Christian. Lying (taquia) is permitted, even encouraged if it benefits Islam.

We must judge Hussein Obama as the "elected" President and Commander in Chief of our military first by his words:

7/27/14 On the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr - In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.

"The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam"

"The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer"

"I made clear that America is not - and never will be - at war with Islam."

"Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism - it is an important part of promoting peace."

"Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."

"That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."

"We've seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants - farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe."

"We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world -- including in my own country."

"As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam."

"Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance."

"Islam has always been part of America"

"we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities"

"These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings."

"America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."

"So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed"

"In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education."

"Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality"

"The Holy Koran tells us, 'O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.'"

"I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month."

"I also know that Islam has always been a part of America's story."

His actions would suggest he actually intends to become a martyr for Islam. Jihad is the holy war against unbelievers waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty. The goal of Islam is to become the only religious-political-judicial-cultural ideology in the world.

Strip away all other political issues playing simultaneously and focus on one specific thing only - the absolute proof of his intent to destroy this country is in his totally open borders policy. His plan, his design, his jihad.

Only the willfully blind can deny the devastation being brought in hour by hour. If we stop and consider nothing else but the ramifications of diseases the so-called "children" carry spreading thru-out the country that is horrific by itself. Had he said - America - these children are and will be coming in, some with diseases - we will quarantine them and get them well and then, and only then, move them to their waiting families.... But he did not say that.

There will be many deaths and those in Washington will not go untouched. Possibly even Hussein Obama. And that - is the ultimate honor of jihadists - to martyr oneself for the cause of Islam and enter heaven where the virgins await.

It is simply inconceivable that someone, some evil someone, would intentionally bring these diseases here to infect this (or any) country. But 9/11 was inconceivable too.

Our school children will be the first to be hit in just about a month when they return from vacation.

What will be left after Hussein Obama's jihad on America? I don't even want to go there, but I do know, something terrible comes.....

Click these links if you dare and see what our Jihadist In Chief meticulously planned and executed for you, me, and our loved ones.

Scabies ..... Lice ..... Chagas disease ..... Chicken Pox ..... Dengue Fever ..... Swine Flu ..... Hepatitis ..... Malaria ..... Measles ..... Tuberculosis (TB) ..... now Ebola

The Border Crisis: 'Check and Mate'

Really, you just can't make this stuff up!

" ... a plan by the Obama Administration to save the children from the train of death, pick them up in their home countries and fly the directly to the districts where democratic voters are most needed. As far as political theater this comes under the "You've got to be kidding me" category. And as a bonus once the children are here we will need to bring their parents along to help preserve the family. And now the undocumented democrats are demanding representation at any White House meetings designed to determine their fate. They plan to protest in front of the White House until their demands are met with no fear of arrest. Has Monty Python taken over this country? How can living in the shadows include public demonstrations and representation in the government?"
Guest post by Dr. Robert Owens.

According to Zach Taylor an outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent who is the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, "As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded." Taylor continues, "This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed" because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled."

Taylor also said, "If asymmetrical warfare is going to be successful, the first thing that has to be done is to compromise America's defenses against invasion because they have to have their personnel inside the United States to affect the infrastructure... they have to affect the degeneration from inside the United States."

By constantly focusing on the 10% that is apprehended, and by consistently referring to the 1%who are immigrant minors, the government and their media fellow-travelers draw the attention of most Americans away from the hundreds of thousands who evade capture. No one knows how many of these people are gang members. It is known that in Central America children as young as ten join these gangs and that the initiation for many is committing murder. These are the poor but not innocent children who may be in a classroom with your own sons and daughters come September.

According to a June press release Taylor elaborated, "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government."

Former Agent Taylor asked this pregnant question, "Will this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties, or has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy?"

Perhaps the most chilling thing Taylor had to say was, "It is a perfect military strategy. It doesn't raise any eyebrows because we're focused on the children, but we need to focus on our children, because this is asymmetrical warfare. Everything says it is. And the way the United States government is responding to it is concealing that fact from the American people. In other words they're assisting in the downfall of America, and you need to understand that."

What is the real scope of this invasion? According to Dan Patrick a Texas State Senator, "Every week, week after week, we've been averaging for the last year apprehending between six and ten thousand people a week. If we apprehend eight or nine thousand a week, that's more people than are born in Texas each week." The Senator continued, "Now, we think we catch one out of every five. That means twenty five or thirty thousand are crossing the border, that we don't catch. Don't focus on the numbers that are apprehended, that's the ones we catch."

Ronald Colburn, former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol says, "According to my sources, it appears that this administration is causing that [bottleneck] on purpose. So they [the Obama administration] may be saying they're trying to resolve it, but they're doing something different. They need to put their actions where their mouths are."

According to a Pew Research study, "Even though the growth is higher among younger children, the bulk of unaccompanied children caught at the border remain teenagers. In fiscal year 2013, nine-in-ten minors apprehended at the border were teens. This share has dropped as the number of younger children making the dangerous trip has risen dramatically: In the first eight months of fiscal year 2014, 84% were teens."

We are told every day all day by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and the cable clones that this is an emergency. Or as they say it, "THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!!" Yet according to the Congressional Budget Office only $25 million out of the $4.3 billion request will be spent this year. The CBO score conflicts with the argument of Democrats and Obama administration officials, that the money is urgently needed for border activities. We are portrayed as heartless, as merely wanting to protect our own privilege while consigning the children to lives of hopeless poverty. However the fact is that according to Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) the Senate Budget Committee's ranking member, "Between 2000 and 2013, we lawfully issued almost 30 million work and immigrant visas. To put that number in perspective, 30 million is about the population of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala combined."

I believe it is time that those of us who believe in a traditional America and its values of limited government, personal liberty and economic freedom are honest with ourselves. For the past 100 years when you compare the long game of the Progressives with the rest of us; we have been playing checkers and they have been playing chess. Not only have they kept their end goals always in view through victory and defeat they have successfully captured education and media programming generations of people to if not think like them to at least accept the soundness of their premise: government can be all things to all people. In this game of chess that we never realized we were playing, the current invasion, plotted and planned well in advance, may well be check and checkmate. How can we ever recover from an influx of millions of new progressive supporters and voters shipped around the country to the districts needed to sway elections? How are we ever going to come back from this?

Abraham Lincoln told us, "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Europe committed suicide in two fratricidal world wars. We have allowed hubris abroad and greed at home to lead us down the same path. By establishing a world-girdling empire of nation building money pits and a centrally planned redistributionist attempt at utopia at home we have stifled freedom and killed the golden goose. Now the preplanned crisis in the south is delivering the plurality of low information voters to seal the deal.

Yes Boston YES! Show America the way! - Border Crisis!

When Americans have to answer the question "Will you keep your children out of school this fall?" - they are going to stand up! Bravo Boston!


Thousands Storm Boston in Massive Protest Against Housing Illegals in the State

llegal immigration protesters in Boston came out in droves on Saturday in a public outcry against Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick's decision to offer shelter in the state to unaccompanied minors.

While there is not an official count of protesters who gathered on Boston's Beacon Hill yesterday, it's estimated to have been around 10,000 citizens in opposition to Patrick's decision, according to Jeff Kuhner, host of WRKO's The Kuhner Report.

The sheer number of attendees serves to demonstrate American's general opinion on the immigration issue. "I've been to a lot of rallies on Beacon Hill. This is by far the largest I've seen," Bree Sison of Boston's WBZ-TV tweeted. Kuhner added to that same sentiment saying, "I've never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite."

"This week, a state official said it remained 'unclear' how many unaccompanied minors crossing the nation's southern border illegally would be coming to Massachusetts and how many could stay in the state longer. The state has offered to house up to 1,000 children at one of two secure facilities for up to four months," reported.

Language regarding illegal 'children' seems to have been carefully crafted in an effort to appeal to the sensitivities of the masses.

"When you say child, the implication is 4, 5, 6 [years old]. They're teenagers - many of them are gangbangers ... If you're 15, you're not a child. A child is 12 and under," reported. More here at Mad World News!

Naomi Ragen - Israel - Hamas - Gaza

I have been on Naomi Ragen's email list for several years. No. I am not Jewish. Yes, absolutely I support Israel and Naomi's writings are sensitive, passionate, informative, fair.

The below came in an email today and I thought I would post it along with the Roger L. Simon piece -

So Many Miracles - This e-mail is going around in Hebrew. It is all true.

The soldiers in Gaza are switched out with other units in order to rest. This story was told by one of these soldiers.

"I and my friends captured a number of Hamas terrorists. When they were interrogated, we asked them, if you have so many tunnels that come into Israel, and that are built 25 feet under the ground and reach to Beer Sheva, why until now have you never used any of them for terrorist attacks? To kidnap or kill Israelis?

And this is what he answered:

"For twelve years we have been building these tunnels and waiting for the right moment, when we were trained and ready. We decided that the time would be this year on Rosh Hashana, 2014. We chose Rosh Hashana because most of the soldiers get leave to go home and there aren't a lot on guard duty, and it's a two day holiday. All of Hamas would go through the tunnels we've built over twelve years and capture Israel. In every tunnel we'd send two, three dozen armed terrorists and kidnap civilians, women, children and bring them back to Gaza through the tunnels. And then Israel couldn't bomb the tunnels because of all the Israeli civilians inside them. And in this way we would occupy the entire country and rule Israel and kill all the Zionists. For years we were planning this and it was going to happen in two months. Your attacks on Gaza destroyed our plans."

The person who sent this to me added this:

"Many religious people asked after our three boys were found dead what happened to all our prayers? So you see, this is what happened. God heard us. And because of these three martyred boys, all of Israel was saved from a terrible massacre. All the things that we have seen this summer are one miracle after the next. Continue to pray and strengthen each other. And give thanks to God who watches over the Jewish people in the land He promised them.

Roger L. Simon - Israel's Most Dangerous Enemy

Barack Obama is apparently very angry with Bibi Netanyahu.

We have known for some time, via hot mike and other methods, that neither he nor his secretary of State much care for the Israeli prime minister. But -- perhaps exacerbated by a multiplicity of foreign and domestic policy failures, plus atrocious poll numbers, one this weekend showing Romney beating him handily were the election held today -- Obama seemed more irked than usual.

He needed someone to beat up since the world was beating him up. And the Israelis had just hugely embarrassed his secretary of State (and by extension him) by pointing out their absurd bias in favor of Hamas in ceasefire negotiations, so absurd in fact that they outraged even Israel's most famous liberal/left politician, Tzipi Livni, who would normally do almost anything for a chance for peace. (Ironically, the details of the pro-Hamas negotiations in which Israeli security concerns -- the tunnels, demilitarization, etc. -- were ignored were exposed by Barak Ravid in Israel's most liberal newspaper, Haaretz.)

Further, they had outraged the Egyptians, who were dumped from the negotiations by Obama and Kerry in favor of Turkey and Qatar. Our administration seems to have a preference for the more extreme Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood societies, although you would think, given their professed loyalty to women's and gay rights, these cultures would be anathema to them. Never mind. Obama is an equal opportunity narcissist and everything's fine, unless you cross him.

Which, according to sources in Israel, is where Netanyahu found himself when the American president called Sunday to admonish him about Gaza. Obama reportedly used or implied the threat of withholding the resupply of weapons -- don't know if this includes the Iron Dome itself -- if Israel didn't fall into line and stop attacking Gaza immediately.

What Obama is doing, in effect, is saving Hamas. It's almost mind boggling to think, but it's true. Continue here.

"To all those whose plan 4 peace includes eliminating 'others', ALL 'others' are always militantly uncooperative with such plans."

Post title via Gypsy RavenWraithe @flippinth3raya

Reality is what you see, what you hear, and you see what you want to see, you hear what you want to hear. Your reality is not mine and for every man and woman on earth reality is different. It is difficult to have someone else see things thru your eyes, especially if their reality is far different than yours. But try, try we must. Most of us long for peace and a world without war.

We Are Not Like Them by Naomi Ragen on July 27th, 2014

No place is safe, not Jerusalem, or the coffee houses of Tel Aviv or the port city of Haifa. Distance is no longer a factor. The rockets go everywhere, undirected, carelessly, to fall on hospitals, nursery schools, summer camps. Miraculously, they are diverted and destroyed, again and again and again.

Three faces. They could be my sons, or yours. They peer out at us wherever we go. There are special prayer sessions at the synagogue, reminding me of those days when we prayed for the safe return of Nachshon Wachsman, my friend and neighbor's boy.

We wake up each morning, and nothing is new, nothing is known, until, at a wedding by the sea for the son of good friends, caressed by warm sea breezes, beside a flower-bedecked table, Esther Wachsman leans over and whispers in my ear: "They found their bodies. They are all dead." She and her husband leave. And for me, I am back in October 14, 1994, a Friday night in Ramot. Nachshon Wachsman and Nir Poraz, the soldier who came to free him, have just been killed by terrorist bullets.

Once again, we mourn our unanswered prayers, filled with a grief that I know time will blunt, but never heal.

In the midst of our mourning, there is news that a Palestinian boy, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, has been kidnapped and burned alive. Revenge? It cannot be. We Jews are not like them. We don't murder innocent people, children. Never. He was gay. He was murdered by his own family.

It's an honor killing. This is what we want to believe. We are incensed that the media have jumped to conclusions.

And then they are picked up, the murderers, and they are Jews. And they did it for revenge, as if taking an innocent life was an answer, instead of a tragedy; as if it could be justified, be a comfort instead of adding yet another layer of grief to our collective mourning, this time for ourselves, that there are those among us who are no different from our enemies.

But then the truth emerges. Yosef Chaim Ben-David, the ringleader, is a mental patient who once tried to strangle his own baby daughter. Our rabbi dedicates a Torah class to the soul of Muhammad Abu Khdeir. Some are enraged, others, myself, comforted. We are not like them, our enemies.

Again, there is no time to mourn. The "Color Red" warning sirens scream out danger, and the rockets from Gaza begin to fall. Again and again and again. No place is safe, not Jerusalem, or the coffee houses of Tel Aviv or the port city of Haifa. Distance is no longer a factor. The rockets go everywhere, undirected, carelessly, to fall on hospitals, nursery schools, summer camps. Miraculously, they are diverted and destroyed, again and again and again. Continue here.
