"Would Iran fund less terrorism when it has mountains of cash with which to fund more terrorism?"

The above a quote from Prime Minister Netanyahu in his speech before congress (little c) yesterday.

There seems to be some confusion about money and Iran. Do billions of dollars qualify as mountains of cash? Obama's intelligence officials last year state clearly that Iran already has "billions" of dollars which it is already using to fund terrorism. You might want to read the whole excerpt below. Hussein Obama's brightest had a lot to say about Iran and it's capabilities.

Oh and by the way - there are no public events on the pResidents schedule for today. One could wonder why.

Statement for the Record

Worldwide Threat Assessment

of the

US Intelligence Community

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
James R. Clapper
Director of National Intelligence
January 29, 2014


Iran and Hizballah are committed to defending the Asad regime and have provided support toward this end, including sending billions of dollars in military and economic aid, training pro-regime and Iraqi Shia militants, and deploying their own personnel in to the country. Iran and Hizballah view the Asad regime as a key partner in the "axis of resistance" against Israel and are prepared to take major risks to preserve the regime as well as their critical transshipment routes.

Iran and Hizballah

Outside of the Syrian theater, Iran and Lebanese Hizballah continue to directly threaten the interests of US allies. Hizballah has increased its global terrorist activity in recent years to a level that we have not seen since the 1990s.

Counterterrorism Cooperation

As the terrorist threat is becoming more diffuse and harder to detect, cooperation with CT partners will take on even greater importance. The fluid environment in the Middle East and North Africa will likely further complicate already challenging circumstances as we partner with governments to stem the spread of terrorism.


Nation-state efforts to develop or acquire weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their delivery systems constitute a major threat to the security of the United States, deployed troops, and allies. We are focused on the threat and destabilizing effects of nuclear proliferation, proliferation of chemical and biological warfare (CBW) - related materials, and development of WMD delivery systems. The time when only a few states had access to the most dangerous technologies is past. Biological and chemical materials and technologies, almost always dual use, move easily in the globalized economy, as do personnel with scientific expertise to design and use them. The latest discoveries in the life sciences also diffuse globally and rapidly.

Iran and North Korea Developing WMD - Applicable Capabilities

We continue to assess that Iran's overarching strategic goals of enhancing its security, prestige, and regional influence have led it to pursue capabilities to meet its civilian goals and give it the ability to build missile-deliverable nuclear weapons, if it chooses to do so. At the same time, Iran's perceived need for economic relief has led it to make concessions on its nuclear program through the 24 November 2013
Joint Plan of Action with the P5+1 countries and the European Union (EU). In this context, we judge that Iran is trying to balance conflicting objectives. It wants to improve its nuclear and missile capabilities while avoiding severe repercussions - such as a military strike or regime - threatening sanctions. We do not know if Iran will eventually decide to build nuclear weapons.

Tehran has made technical progress in a number of areas - including uranium enrichment, nuclear reactors, and ballistic missiles - from which it could draw if it decided to build missile - deliverable nuclear weapons. These technical advancements strengthen our assessment that Iran has the scientific, technical, and industrial capacity to eventually produce nuclear weapons. This makes the central issue its political will to do so.

Of particular note, Iran has made progress during the past year by installing additional centrifuges at the Fuel Enrichment Plant, developing advanced centrifuge designs, and stockpiling more low - enriched uranium hexafluoride (LEUF). These improvements have better positioned Iran to produce weapons - grade uranium (WGU) using its declared facilities and uranium stockpiles, if it chooses to do so. Despite this progress, we assess that Iran would not be able to divert safeguarded material and produce enough WGU for a weapon before such activity would be discovered. Iran has also continued to work toward starting up the IR-40 Heavy Water Research Reactor near Arak.

We judge that Iran would choose a ballistic missile as its preferred method of delivering nuclear weapons, if Iran ever builds these weapons. Iran's ballistic missiles are inherently capable of delivering WMD, and Iran already has the largest inventory of ballistic missiles in the Middle East. Iran's progress on space launch vehicles - along with its desire to deter the United States and its allies - provides Tehran with the means and motivation to develop longer - range missiles, including an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

We assess that if Iran fully implements the Joint Plan, it will temporarily halt the expansion of its enrichment program, eliminate its production and stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium in a form suitable for further enrichment, and provide additional transparency into its existing and planned nuclear facilities. This transparency would provide earlier warning of a breakout using these facilities.

(Must Watch Video) Middle Schooler to Obama: 'Do you really love America?'


Just in case you missed this story last week, 12 year-old Georgia middle schooler CJ Pearson's viral video in which he blasted President Obama provoked a big-time reaction from viewers - over 1.6 million of them.

Published on Feb 21, 2015: "President Obama, you don't love America!"

After speaking his mind and telling the truth about Obama ... he was rewarded by Facebook by having his Facebook account suspended

It wasn't the only time Pearson has spoken his mind ... here he has some advice for the GOP:


As it turns out, CJ Pearson's account was suspended because at 12 years old, he did not meet Facebook's terms and conditions which require all users to be 13 or older. Once Pearson drew attention to himself, it was clear his account was in violation of Facebook's stated rules and it was suspended.

#AmericansInWaiting to occupy their own country within this country!

America is being b**ch slapped with every dying breath. Every labored, tortured, dying breath.

H/T Cry and Howl

From the Independent Sentinel - WH Plans to Develop a "Country Within a Country" of 15 Million "New Americans" - Citizens Will Be Cast Into The Shadows

The White House has plans to legalize 13 to 15 million illegal immigrants who will then establish a "country within a country."

The following Mark Levin interview with Susan Payne is shocking but it also puts all the pieces into place.

Susan Payne is a contributor to WCBM, Baltimore and Co-Host of the Pat McDonough Radio Show,

Unbeknownst to the Obama officials, Ms. Payne was invited to listen in on conference calls at an immigration rally. Cecilia Munoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, and 16 members of the White House cabinet were on the first call. White House officials were on all three calls. What Ms. Payne learned needs to be immediately shared with Congress and the public.

There is much, much more information in this article including YOUR - get that? YOUR "fair housing" obligations. PLEASE read here.

Exit Executive Orders - enter the pResidential decree

Your have noticed Executive Orders seem to have given way to all kinds of decrees by Hussein Obama. I assume his pin must have run dry. Now we have orders, executive actions, memorandums, prosecutorial discretion. Judge Napolitano explains the bait and switch in the video below.

And, dare anyone not uphold an ObamaLaw (as opposed to upholding the oath taken to uphold the Constitution) woah be unto him/her! There WILL be consequences!

Prosecutorial discretion defined
- Prosecutorial discretion refers to the fact that under American law, government prosecuting attorneys have nearly absolute powers. A prosecuting attorney has power on various matters including those relating to choosing whether or not to bring criminal charges, deciding the nature of charges, plea bargaining and sentence recommendation. This discretion of the prosecuting attorney is called prosecutorial discretion.

Muslim heroes

Muslim heroes do exist but Hussein Obama is not one of them IMHO.

1-3-15 - PJMedia - Egypt's al-Sisi Makes Extraordinary Speech on Islam

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi made an extraordinary speech on New Year's Day to Cairo's Al-Azhar and the Awqaf Ministry calling for a long overdue virtual ecclesiastical revolution in Islam. This is something no Western leader has the had the courage to do, certainly not Barack Obama, despite his Muslim education.

Accusing the umma (world Islamic population) of encouraging the hostility of the entire world, al-Sisi's speech is so dramatic and essentially revolutionary it brings to mind Khrushchev's famous speech exposing Stalin. Many have called for a reformation of Islam, but for the leader of the largest Arab nation to do so has world-changing implications.

Here are the key parts as translated on Raymond Ibrahim's blog:

I am referring here to the religious clerics. We have to think hard about what we are facing--and I have, in fact, addressed this topic a couple of times before. It's inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma [Islamic world] to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible!

That thinking--I am not saying "religion" but "thinking"--that corpus of texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the years, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world. It's antagonizing the entire world!

Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world's inhabitants--that is 7 billion--so that they themselves may live? Impossible!

I am saying these words here at Al Azhar, before this assembly of scholars and ulema--Allah Almighty be witness to your truth on Judgment Day concerning that which I'm talking about now.

All this that I am telling you, you cannot feel it if you remain trapped within this mindset. You need to step outside of yourselves to be able to observe it and reflect on it from a more enlightened perspective.

I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move... because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost--and it is being lost by our own hands.

Continue here.

From the Gatestone Institute
- Hero of the Middle East: Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Sheikh Dr. Ahmed al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Cairo's Al-Azhar University, the seat of Sunni Islam, yesterday delivered a courageous, historic speech in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, urging reform in religious education to curb extremism in Islam. Al-Tayyeb's address was the result of an even more courageous and historic speech, delivered a few weeks ago by Egypt's devoutly Muslim President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, at Al-Azhar University.

El-Sisi's monumental statement, truly worthy of a Nobel Prize, is having a seismic result. Al-Sisi directed his remarks, about the ills of Islam to Islamic clerics in Egypt and around the world. It was enormously brave of him. He did not single out radical Islam, but he did call on all Muslims to examine themselves, carry out a religious revolution and renew their faith.

El-Sisi, a man of monumental courage, urged Muslims not to behave according to the ancient, destructive interpretations of the Qur'an and Islam that make the rest of the world hate them, destroy Islam's reputation and put Muslim immigrants to Western countries in the position of having to fight their hosts. He claimed that it is illogical for over a billion Muslims to aspire to conquer and subdue six billion non-Muslims. Continue here. If there ever was a "must" read this is it.

An idea whose time has come - the Blackphone - @th3j35t3r

Several times a day I am hit with the thought - What the hell country is this? <-- read. You won't like it but best be aware. "Our freedoms--especially the Fourth Amendment--are being choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation."

Not all the electronics being made today are good mainly for the manufacturer and our out of control government.

John Boehner: So fools, you actually voted? - Kicking the can 357-60

Hussein Obama does not have "his" Americans-In-Waiting funding. Yet.

Congress Approves One-Week Pact to Fund Homeland Security

It was a long night for political junkies trying to keep track of whether or not Homeland Security would get shut down or not. After all the noise the Democrats made over the last few weeks, people were terrified that if DHS didn't get funded, ISIS would be slicing off heads in shopping malls by Sunday.

When the proverbial smoke cleared in the Capitol, all that happened was they postponed the drop dead date until next Friday. Gloating like a pair of peacocks Pelosi and Reid were acting like they were back in charge. Boehner was around, somewhere, at least his staff was still talking. Not sure about the Dishonorable Mitch McConnell, probably off somewhere collecting contributions from the Chamber of Commerce.

The truth of the matter is DHS wouldn't have shut down. People designated non essential would get sent home. Only about 10% of the departments 230,000 employees are considered non essential. Outside of new hires, still in training at the academy, very few other people would be affected. I doubt they'd have even sent home the clerks that type up those Conservative Domestic Terrorism Assessments they hide from everyone except CNN, Propaganda is a valuable political tool. The rest here.

First they came...

Bee Sting - "Martin Niemoller (1892-1984) was an ardent nationalist and prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last 7 years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. Niemoller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:"

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.

EMBRACE the new American euphemisms - or else... #AmericansInWaiting"

The White (Black) House is beginning a push for new wording to replace "illegal immigrants." The decree is that we are to call them "Americans-In-Waiting." Liberals will fall into line like good little lemmings.

The Blaze - A Lesson in Progressivism: 'Americans-in-Waiting' "Once progressives pinpoint a cause they want to modify, they set about subtly, slowly and methodically to alter how the issue is perceived by the public. This is usually accomplished by applying language that explains the topic in a positive or at least neutral way, rather than exposing the truth about the issue." Read here.

And those who resist will sooner rather than later find the First Amendment no longer applies. To them.

A Rose By Any Other Name (On Islam being Islam)


The main lesson we learn from History is that we don't learn from History. The lack of historical perspective is, I believe, one of the major contributing factors in Americ's current state.

People don't realize that all of these novel fixes our collectivist leaders are shoving down our throats with regard to health care have been tried multiple times before. Or that they have failed every time.

People don't realize that preemptive imperial wars of aggression and suppression have been disguised as endless wars for peace since Sargon the Great marched out of Akkad to found the first known empire.

Running true to form most people, apparently including our national leaders both political and military and the news anchors for the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media, do not realize that ISIS is not an aberration in Islamic History.

Neither are the other forms of Islamic terrorist groups which have plagued the world since the late 1960s when Palestinian secular movements such as Al Fatah and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) began to target civilians outside the immediate arena of conflict. These were self-proclaimed secular groups. As pointed out by RAND's Bruce Hoffman, in 1980 two out of 64 groups were categorized as largely religious in motivation; in 1995 almost half of the identified groups, 26 out of 56, were classified as religiously motivated; the majority of these espoused Islam as their guiding force.

Political versus Fundamentalist Islam

Political Islam, as opposed to fundamentalist or neo-fundamentalist Islam, posits a worldview that can deal with and selectively integrate modernity. In contrast, fundamentalist Islam calls for a return to an ontological form of Islam that rejects modernity; groups such as ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Egyptian Islamic Jihad are representative of fundamentalist Islam.

A Note on State Sponsors of Religious Terror Groups

Unlike the "secular" national, radical, anarchist terrorism which have been sponsored by states such as Libya, Syria, Iraq, Cuba, North Korea, and behind the scenes by the former Soviet camp, most of the religious Islamic terrorist groups have never been sponsored by states. Many Egyptian organizations emerged from the Egyptian domestic landscape. Algerian groups likewise were not sponsored by foreign states. Hezbollah certainly can be viewed as an Iranian surrogate, but other movements, while open to state assistance, remain operationally and ideologically independent. ISIS is different in that it has declared itself to be a state.

This brings us to the willful disregard of easily accessible knowledge which brings all of our political and cultural leaders to constantly say:

  • That the forces of ISIS and other Islamic terrorist organizations are not Islamic.
  • That these groups have somehow hijacked Islam or that they are merely criminals hiding behind Islamic names and slogans.

For one thing who are we to judge another's faith? If someone says they are followers of Muhammed who are we to say they aren't? If someone says they are doing their best to live by their interpretation of the Koran who are we to say they aren't?

This is one of the reasons it is so hard to get even the most "moderate" of Muslims to denounce ISIS and the other Islamic Terror organizations. Even if they personally disagree with their theology and their methods there is enough in their declarations of faith that align with traditional strains of Islam. It would be like a Catholic saying a Pentecostal isn't a Christian because they have differing views of the actions of the Holy Spirit in the modern day.

This refusal to admit the Islamic nature of these groups disarms the West. We cannot understand what they want, what they do, or why they have such a strong hold on the lives of so many. Another aspect of our official blindness that prevents us from confronting this clash of civilizations appropriately is the oft repeated mantra that those Muslims who support the radicals is a tiny group, often mentioned at 1%. We are also reminded often that 1.6 billion people make up the Muslim world. If this second figure is correct the tiny minority of the first figure translates to 16 million people.

Sixteen million people willing to fight to the death, blow themselves up, or financially support them is larger than any army ever fielded by Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, or Stalin. Obviously this is a threat that should be taken seriously. It should not be dismissed by ignoring what they say about themselves. Imagine if the leaders of the western democracies had bothered to read Hitler"s Mein Kampf and believe that he meant what he said. They could have stopped him when he marched into the Rhineland with no trouble whatsoever. Instead they ignored what he said and fifty million people paid with their lives.

Today we stand in a similar place. We ignored Osama Bin Laden when he declared war on America in 1988 and 1996 with disastrous consequences. Now we are ignoring the inherent attraction of those who claim the Islamic world as their own when we say they are not motivated by their religion. It strips us of the ability to understand them, their objectives, their appeal, and their tactics.

Another disservice our leaders are foisting on us is the other mantra of their secular religion that Islam is a religion of peace. This flies in the face of historical reality. Islam did not initially spread as Christianity did by the power of its message and the blood of its martyrs. Islam spread as a conquering religion. Muhammed conquered Medina and Mecca, forced unity on the disparate Arab tribes before bursting forth from the Arabian Peninsula and spreading through military conquest and forcible conversions.

Rod Dreher in the American Conservative has done a masterful job of asking two important questions, "Is ISIS Islamic? How would we know?" Much of what follows is excerpted from his penetrating analysis.

To take one example: In September, Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, the Islamic State's chief spokesman, called on Muslims in Western countries such as France and Canada to find an infidel and "smash his head with a rock," poison him, run him over with a car, or "destroy his crops." To Western ears, the biblical-sounding punishments -- the stoning and crop destruction -- juxtaposed strangely with his more modern-sounding call to vehicular homicide. As if to show that he could terrorize by imagery alone, Adnani also referred to Secretary of State John Kerry as an "uncircumcised geezer."

Adnani was not merely talking trash. His speech was laced with theological and legal discussion. His exhortations to attack crops directly echoed orders from Muhammad to leave well water and crops alone -- unless the armies of Islam were in a defensive position, in which case Muslims in the lands of Kuffar, or infidels, should be unmerciful, and poison away.

The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.

Virtually every major decision and law promulgated by the Islamic State adheres to what it calls, in its press and pronouncements and on its billboards, license plates, stationery, and coins, "the Prophetic methodology," which means following the prophecy and example of Muhammad in punctilious detail. Muslims can reject the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending that it isn't actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it. We'll need to get acquainted with the Islamic State's intellectual genealogy if we are to react in a way that will not strengthen it, but instead help it self-immolate in its own excessive zeal.

Princeton scholar Bernard Haykel contends that the ranks of the Islamic State are deeply infused with religious vigor. Of partial Lebanese descent, Haykel grew up in Lebanon and the United States. Haykel regards the claim that the Islamic State has distorted the texts of Islam as preposterous and sustainable only through willful ignorance. "People want to absolve Islam," he said. According to Professor Haykel, "It's this 'Islam is a religion of peace'" mantra. As if there is such a thing as ''Islam'! It's what Muslims do, and how they interpret their texts" Those texts are shared by all Sunni Muslims, not just the Islamic State. "And these guys have just as much legitimacy as anyone else" Haykel continued.

In Haykel's estimation, the fighters of the Islamic State are authentic throwbacks to early Islam and are faithfully reproducing its norms of war. This behavior includes a number of practices that modern Muslims tend to prefer not to acknowledge as integral to their sacred texts. "Slavery, crucifixion, and beheadings are not something that freakish [jihadists] are cherry-picking from the medieval tradition," Haykel said. Islamic State fighters "are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition and are bringing it wholesale into the present day" says Haykel.

According to one thought passed along by Rod Dreher what we call "Islamic fundamentalism" or "Islamic extremism" is so hard to defeat because it is so clearly rooted in Islamic history and Scripture. To tell the followers of ISIS that they are "un-Islamic" in their practices when they are doing, or trying to do, exactly as the Prophet and his early followers did, is a hard sell to fellow Muslims. It is also the kind of self-imposed blindness that stops us from effectively knowing what we are dealing with.

Drudge headline - Homeland Dysfunction

John Boehner Blows Kisses to the Press, Won't Budge on DHS

February 26, 2015 With less than two days to go before a Homeland Security Department shutdown, John Boehner isn't blinking.

"We passed a bill to fund the department six weeks ago. Six weeks ago!" the House speaker said during a press conference Thursday. "It's time for the Senate to act. How many times do I have to say it?"

Boehner doesn't appear to be going along with his Republican counterparts in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is looking to avert a shutdown by offering Democrats a clean funding bill for DHS. The speaker would not say whether he would back a Senate funding bill without provisions that would defund President Obama's executive actions on immigration. At one point, Boehner blew kisses at reporters after they asked whether he would.
