When Islamic advocate Ahmed Bedier traveled to Santa Clara County a few months ago to lend support for a proposed Islamic center, he declared that opposition to the mosque was "Islamophobic" in nature. He disingenuously compared objections against a mosque south of San Jose with the Washington, D.C. exposé of the Muslim Brotherhood´s infiltration of the U.S. government, led by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Bedier, the former communications director for CAIR -- an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas terrorism financing trial -- painted both events as blatant evidence of endemic discrimination against Muslims in
Comments: This is extremely disturbing. The number of violations cited in the article is horrifying, all ignored to appease Muslims. I weep for what is becoming of our country.
If the mooslims don´t like it, get their butts out of our country and go where you are wanted. Religion of peace? Tell that fairy tale to the survivors of 9/11 and the 3000 dead. Round ´em up and ship them out.
Before the end of this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will decide whether or not to begin the rulemaking process to mandate that newly manufactured cars include what is being called “vehicle-to-vehicle” (V2V) communications technology that constantly broadcasts via radio wave the car’s location, direction, speed and, possibly, even the number of passengers it is carrying. “NHTSA expects to make a decision on V2V technology by the end of the year,” a spokesman for the agency told CNSNews.com. That point was reaffirmed by NHTSA Administrator David Strickland in testimony in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee today, where
Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., conceded that Democrats got "in bed" with insurance companies while crafting Obamacare, as he argued that the companies should do more to promote the law. "We need to push this out into the insurance companies," Clyburn said on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe." "If we are going to be in bed with them, let´s bring them into this process. A lot of these insurance companies could be signing people up, they could be informing their policy holders — this letter that they´re sending out, don´t just cancel the policies, let them know what their alternatives are." Clyburn´s comment
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is launching a renewed push for an investigation into last year’s Benghazi terrorist attack. He sent a letter to his Senate colleagues requesting their support for a Joint Select Committee to look into the attacks that left four Americans dead. Today on The Real Story, Sen. Cruz told Gretchen Carlson that he’s looking for answers as to why there wasn’t extra security and why military support wasn’t sent to help during the attack. He said the problem with the congressional hearings that have already happened “is that those committees are unable to be focused and systematic
U.S. and Afghan officials reportedly have reached a tentative agreement on a critical security pact -- which would include President Obama writing a letter to the Afghan people acknowledging mistakes during the "war on terror." According to Reuters, an Afghan spokesman said Tuesday that Obama agreed to write the letter, to be presented with the draft security pact at a meeting of tribal elders later this week. The New York Times, citing a spokesman for Afghan President Hamid Karzai, reported that Secretary of State John Kerry proposed the letter in a conversation with Karzai. Karzai asked that Obama sign it, and Kerry reportedly
A bombshell report published in the New York Post alleges that census data relating to new jobs created during the month of September, 2012, was “faked.” The fabricated data, the report indicates, resulted in the sharp reduction in the nation’s unemployment rate in October, 2012, from 8.1 to 7.8 percent. On Tuesday, White House Press Sec. Jay Carney said that there was nothing to this report. “That story is obviously misleading,” Carney told ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl. “I think a lot of people shed a lot of credibility engaging in conspiracy theories last fall about, you know, rigged jobs numbers.” Carney
Consumers have suffered sticker shock when they try to enroll in Obamacare´s health insurance exchanges, but soon those same consumers may be faced with far fewer choices of doctors and hospitals. Insurance companies that participate in the exchanges say they have to narrow consumers´ choice of health care providers to keep medical costs and premiums from soaring even higher than they already have. "What we are trying to do is create better price points," an official with the insurer WellPoint told the Washington Examiner. "Something that will be very attractive to consumers across the board. So, we are narrowing and
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, said Congress will not be able to pass a new round of sanctions before talks this weekend between the international community and Iran on Tehran´s nuclear program. Corker, emerging from a meeting with President Obama and a bipartisan group of senators at the White House on Tuesday, expressed reservations about the direction the Obama administration was taking in the talks but said he needed time to evaluate his next step. “There was a strong meeting and a lot of questions were asked and a lot questions were answered,”
A new pro-gun-control game allows players to reenact last year’s Sandy Hook elementary school massacre. The game, The Slaying of Sandy Hook, has players to carry out a bleak, stylized version of the shooting, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults. Players take on the role of Adam Lanza, the perpetrator, and text boxes prompt them to pick up a Glock pistol, move into the bedroom of Lanza’s mother, Nancy, and shoot her four times, just as Lanza did in real life. They are then directed to pick up an AR-15, ammunition, and Nancy Lanza’s car keys. The game
A chief official responsible for building the federal health-insurance exchange revealed that as much as 70 percent of the system still needs to be built. Henry Chao, the deputy chief information officer for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told a House subcommittee that the administration still needs to construct the payment systems and other “back office” functions, which constitute 60 to 70 percent of the system. The White House has said that HealthCare.gov will be functioning for a “vast majority of people” by its self-imposed November 30 deadline. On Monday, reports said that the administration will consider the website a “success”
Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are claiming that their Republican colleagues are playing politics by giving crucial documents about the implementation of ObamaCare to the press before their fellow lawmakers. Members of the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee said on Tuesday that they didn’t receive documents showing that a private consulting team was brought in to assess the development of HealthCare.gov until after The Washington Post and other outlets reported the briefings on Monday night, based on documents from the committee. That’s despite the fact that Republicans on the panel received them on Thursday, they said. “I’ve got
The House Oversight Committee is vowing to thoroughly investigate a report that unemployment data was falsified months before the 2012 presidential election. The New York Post reported Monday evening that a Census Bureau employee had been found fabricating unemployment survey data that helped determine the nation’s jobless rate. Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) told The Hill Tuesday that the Oversight panel plans to probe the findings, which he called “extremely serious.” “The allegation that data gathered by the Census Bureau is being manipulated for any reason is extremely serious. The Oversight Committee has jurisdiction over the Census Bureau and will be thoroughly investigating
President Obama was unable to attend Tuesday´s ceremony commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address because of scheduling issues stemming from the rollout of his signature healthcare law, the White House said Tuesday. Following stories questioning why the president had skipped the event, given his public affinity for President Lincoln, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted that "it didn´t work schedule-wise." In response to a journalist´s Twitter query about what could be more important, Pfeiffer wrote: "Oh, I don´t know, there´s this whole website thing that someone suggested might destroy the [Democratic] Party." According
In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington. The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated. And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it. Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy. And a knowledgeable
The Times Of Israel is reporting that a team of negotiators led by White House adviser Valerie Jarrett has been conducting secret talks with Iran about it´s nuclear weapons program for the past year. The report states the deal submitted in Geneva earlier this month was a direct result of these secret year-long negotiations between teams headed by Jarrett and Iran´s Ali Akbar Salehi. That deal was ultimately rejected when France and Israel raised strong objections, and talks are expected to resume this Wednesday. The White House was very quick to issue a categorical denial of the report. According to
Second-term presidents in the past 30 years have had some pretty embarrassing news conferences, full of frank admissions of failure, submissive spasms of shame and groveling, grieving apologies. Bill Clinton had to admit that he actually did have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky; George W. Bush finally thought of something he might have done wrong; his dad had to explain all those new taxes after his unequivocal pledge; and even Ronald Reagan ate crow over the Iran-Contra affair. But there has never, ever, been a more pitiful presser than the one conducted last week by President Obama.
Barack Obama is the coolest president we’ve had since John F. Kennedy, at least according to conventional standards for such things. Obama has always been a brand as much as a politician, one that has been perceived as sleek, smart, and up to date. Then along came HealthCare.gov. Its failure to launch is a signal event in the long political battle over Obamacare and perhaps an inflection point in the president’s image. It’s hard to maintain a sense of truly being on the cutting edge of change when you can’t build a website. Obama’s cool was, in part, an artifact of world-class
Most women will tell you that other than the N-word, the C-word is the most vile in the English language never to be used.

Carbohydrates are rotting our brains and contributing to devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s, an American neurologist has warned. David Perlmutter, from Florida, believes that even ‘good’ carbs, such as grains, are severely affecting our brains. And the staples of our modern diet aren’t only increasing the risk of dementia, but contributing to depression, epilepsy and headaches, he believes. [Snip] The solution? Going back to the days when our diet was mainly fat--with this making up 75 percent of our diet, and carbs just 5 percent. Protein intake should stay the same as it is, at about 20 percent.
On Sunday, appearing on ABC’s This Week with fill-in host Martha Raddatz, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted that Democrats knew full well that Americans would be booted from their health insurance plans as an effect of Obamacare implementation. When asked whether Democrats were misled by President Obama about whether Americans would be able to keep their plans in the individual insurance market, Gillibrand answered: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.”
“The Affordable Care Act’s political position has deteriorated dramatically over the last week.” That, coming from longtime Obamacare cheerleader and Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein, was pretty strong language. And it was only Wednesday. That was the day after the release of a devastating Quinnipiac national poll. It showed Barack Obama’s approval rating at 39 percent, with his disapproval rating at 54 percent — sharply down from 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval on Oct. 1, the day the government shutdown began and healthcare.gov went into (limited) operation. Democrats hoped that Republicans would take a shellacking in public opinion for the
A downbeat President Barack Obama repeatedly asked his worried supporters Monday night to help resurrect his spirits, following weeks of political disasters and personal humiliations caused by the cascading collapse of Obamacare. The distracted president railed against opponents and at one point appeared to forget the number of people in the Obamacare system during the rambling quarter-hour address. “My main message is I’m going to need your help, your energy, your faith, your ability to reach out to neighbors, kids and friends [and] co-workers,” he told listeners to the Internet broadcast arranged by his grass-roots group, Organizing for Action. But his worried
As the story of the Obamacare website fiacso unfolds, senior administration aides tell me that the president is “mad, frustrated and angry.” Mad that his signature legislative achievement is stuck at the gate, frustrated that he’s running out of time to fix it, and angry that he’s got a second term agenda now going nowhere. He’s so furious, in fact, that he stepped out of character to vent to an assembled group of top aides. “If I had known [about the website problems] ,” the steaming president reportedly said, according to the New York Times, “We could have delayed the
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says everyone should stop talking so much about the 2016 presidential race, because doing so hurts President Obama, who´s only a year into his second term. "In this sense, I feel badly for President Obama. He just won a year ago, and everybody´s like, ´So, who´s next?´" Christie said Monday night at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council. "There is work to be done in this country. And as we shove him out the door, we minimize his ability to be an effective executive. And we shouldn´t do that." Even as he urged people to focus
Former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan thinks Republicans need to take their limited-government message to voters who are “unfamiliar with hearing us."..."Go into inner cities, go into minority communities,” Ryan, who speaks in Iowa tonight, told The Des Moines Register in a telephone interview on Monday. “Go into communities that have not seen or heard from Republicans in a long time.
