Obama’s war on real Americans
Washington Times, by Judson Phillips

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/6/2014 11:23:30 PM

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal. Yet the Obama Regime is going to use

Comments:
It is possible, besides being another distraction from 0bama´s lack of presidential "skills," he´s punishing the GOP for recent Supreme Court rulings against his lack of constitutional "knowledge." More than likely, 0bama will try to force (extortion) an amnesty bill with the lame duck Congress before next year. Tea Party needs to watch RINOS roaming freely on the Hill.

This reeks of a set-up, as the midterms approach and voters must be distracted from seeing how the Democrat party has become the Barack Corleone family.

Re: Reply #3. Isn´t it very odd, in an election year with Republicans favored to win many races and perhaps regain a majority in the Senate, that Obama is pushing this illegal flood of aliens, which a vast majority of Americans opposes?

Maybe Obama´s purpose is to get Democrats defeated. Then, with Republican majorities in both houses he can have a bigger excuse to rule by pen even more.

Where are all the Law Enforcement Officers, from the Secret Service to FBI to the local Police and Sheriffs?

Why are they not on the border? Where are all those yellow bellied cowards who don´t have the ethics and integrity to honor their Oath of Office?

Come on LEOs, stop showing us your behinds and show us your true face.

How ironic that the President is deploying riot squads against the people who are insisting that our laws be enforced! Obama is actually protecting the law breakers. He and Holder are now the rule of law. They will decide what is legal and illegal.

I believe Obama planned this confrontation long ago. This massive influx did not happen on its own. He knew exactly what the optics would be if Americans protested against innocent children. He is a vile evil man who is willing to do anything to get his way and that means using children as human shields. Obama wants this confrontation. He needs it and the media will be there to spin it the way that benefits him most. Obama wants to make the protestors look unhinged. I hope they don´t fall in that trap. I pray for their determined restraint because they will be provoked. God help them.

Oh absolutely #6. He´s been waiting to do this, turn weapons on Americans, in America!, since he became president. I think this is why he needed his own private military. He can´t wait for this to come to a head. It´s why he ran.

The evil undocumented Lord Obama, and his associated cabal of anti-American gangsters, traitors and assorted riffraff, would be wise to heed the words attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto of The Imperial Japanese Navy, after Japan´s demonic sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941---"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

I was going to say this situation is unbelievable, but since the agitator-in-chief was selected, there is nothing he does that IS unbelievable! Now he is sending "riot police" to make sure his disease-ridden-illegal "children" are allowed to roam the streets of OUR country? Good luck to all the parents whose children will be attending school with these poor little "immigrants". If the people of this country will not stand up to defend their own children, there really is no hope. BTW, where is Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, etc. etc.?.........never mind.

Is this why all those different agencies were buying ammunition? You know, the ones that had no LEOs to speak of, except for a couple of security guards here and there. I don´t remember seeing a satisfactory explanation for that peculiar issue. Did the Illegal Incursion begin around the time when Walmart, for example, stopped its rationing of ammunition because enough (for what?) had been stockpiled by those agencies?

The only way these convoys of illegals will be stopped is by the Tiananmen Square tactic: Block the buses and trucks with your own bodies.

That is the kind of courage this will take if it is to be stopped. Our country is being infected by disease, dysfunctional government, and crime at the highest levels of Capitol Hill. Our POTUS has told the American people that he has just enacted amnesty raised to the tenth power, like it or not.

POTUS has, in effect, rendered Congress irrelevant and in fact has told America that we now have a one-branch form of government -- a dictatorship and he is it.

And it is all being done for two reasons. In order of importance, it is being done so that Obama can say, "I did this to stick it to Republicans and to get my own way." Secondarily, he is doing it to register hundreds of thousands of new Democrats in the hope that they will, by sheer numbers, obliterate the Republican Party.

Make no mistake that this POTUS believes he cannot be stopped. He is that certain. And why shouldn´t he be?

From the classic 1964 film “Seven Days in May,” there’s an ominous line spoken by Senator Raymond Clark, played by actor Edmond O’Brien. The line has stayed with me all these 50 years. In light of what America is existentially undergoing at this time in her history, I feel it’s appropriate to be reminded of it:

“Right now the government of the United States is sitting on top of the Washington Monument, right on the very point, tipping right and left, and ready to fall off and break up on the pavement.”

I believe there’s not a great deal of difference between President Barack Hussein Obama and rogue General James Mattoon Scott, played in the film by actor Burt Lancaster. Each has little to no regard for our United States Constitution. Scott is fictional. But, Obama is factual. God help us!

Like I wrote before Obama cannot be allowed to finish his term. If we think this is bad now, just imagine/scale his mission over the next two years.

An objective populace, especially in a country of Obama´s type, as in Islamic, would open fire on those buses and destroy them and their escorts as well. If they don´t/won´t turn around and go home, there is no other solution to save the country from increased poverty, disease, potential ruin.

No matter how strong Obama´s Gestapo/escort force, they are still drastically outnumbered by determined American patriots. It´s time for a repeat of the Battle of Athens(Tn), with the citizens prevailing and wrong doers sent packing, with the military´s help.

Now Captain Zero is using police force to break the law. Not much different from using the IRS to punish political enemies. Now under our esteemed head of the Department of Justice, Eric The Great, and his alter ego in the White House you completely ignore laws you don’t like or you use force to break them. This is justice the Chicago way, specifically Alinsky.

I think when Americans see their government turning guns on American Citizens it will make the November elections a LANDSLIDE for Republicans. It will be the Last Straw! Even Democrats will wake up when they watch the Guns being turned on Americans. A lot of Democrats I know are already ashamed and embarrassed that the guy they voted for has turned into this Dictator. The Standoff with Bundy should have predicted what Americans reaction will be. That´s why the standoff ended with Law Enforcement turning away. They were TOLD to stand down because the Optics were horrible! This could really be a turning point in this country and it won´t end well for Obama and the Democrats!

Those who resist obama and his brownshirts will not be breaking the law. It is time to develop a different mindset from that which we have been living under for decades. The government is now our enemy. We are defending the Constitution, they are spitting on it. Those who are not willing to fight back will soon be watching events from behind razor wire.

History suggests that when a government becomes so evil that it has to openly employ lethal force against its citizens to maintain control, one of two things happens.

The citizens either rise up and oust the dictator or they lose their country permanently.

First, we all must acknowledge that we live in totalitarian fascist/commie country.
Second, more commie than fascist - not in one fascist country there was such hatred for their own citizenry. In commie world it was! Russia, Cambodia, n. Korea are examples.
Third, as it happens in the society there are too many sick sadists who have the urge to torture and kill. Again, Gestapo, KGB and Pol Pot´s soldiers are examples.
My point, America is no different, we have all that.
The sad fact - at this moment in history we don´t have a patriotic leaders to lead the fight against the leftists totalitarians!!!

FTA: Federal riot squad officers should refuse orders to march against American citizens....Republicans should bring the process of government to a halt until the Obama Regime deports the illegal aliens and secures the border.

Does he really believe that that riot squad would stand down?? Those radicals in the Obama regime are itching for a fight. And as far as the Republicans bring the whole process to a halt, in your dreams. You haven´t heard a forceful word out of them since this criminal invasion began. They won´t even prepare a bill to change this loophole in the law that allows these illegals to say. The Democrats probably would ignore it anyway. Who´s the moron in the Bush administration who wrote that law??

The Obama Admin is pushing us ... real Americans ... to a point where they HOPE we break. Murrietta CA may be it.... Bundy Ranch was close. But I fear we have too many outlets to express our discontent, our rage, and then it dissipates in our minds until the next occurrence of something.

What we need are PEOPLE to express our opposition to these actions in the only real way that will work..... Take to the streets. If you can travel to Murretta, do so. If you can travel to the nearest border, do so!

Problem is, I know, most of US have jobs that we can´t just leave or we risk losing them. Jobs are few and far between right now (another planned stage of this takeover), so who can just up and leave, travel maybe hundreds of miles away and feed ourselves for an indeterminate length of time to protest the way the Leftists do? We have no Daddy Billionbucks to recruit and pay us to do his menial work and take the abuse that will be heaped upon us once we do.

Our only realistic hope at this point is that SOMEONE in a position TO DO SOMETHING will act.... LEOs refusing to fire on Americans, military likewise, or someone else in good situation to DO SOMETHING ELSE.

There is martial law in our future, economic collapse - and something will trigger it if we can´t get control of our country back the more acceptable ways, soon.

Prepare yourselves and your families for emergency living.

Sorry, real Americans are few today. In an earlier time we would be blockading ports, shutting down communication, cutting any and all outside aid, isolating the economies, detaining and jailing the invading elements and preparing to permanently remove the dictators and their regimes. In that earlier time, we would´ve demanded it and done whatever we needed to for the security our nation.

Instead we have this. Maybe a few thousand old fishing boats and small aircraft could do it but expect no support from the regime here now.

#41, perhaps someone with a better memory can give you more details, but I do believe there was an attempt to start a violent confrontation at one of the later Tea Party gatherings. Those in attendance simply moved away from the person(s), and kept moving away, isolating them. Should be taught to anyone attending a protest.

And so in a few years, maybe 5, the little rag-a-muffins will come alive and begin their work for ISIS...destroying this country. Good way to infiltrate. Islamists will do anything including schooling their little children on how to kill. Just thinking. Have not figured out why all of these little rag-a-muffins are coming in and on whose authority?

The Dems always try to change the subject prior to election. The last thing they want to talk about is anything related to the economy or national security.

They a ginning up the illegal immigrant issue in time for 2014 and 2016. They think they can win on this issue. There is also a ton of money behind it. Look for the Dems to gin up issues like women´s rights, racism, legalized drugs, gay rights, and others. They need to change the subject.

If riot squads show up make, hopefully the protesters film their actions. Make the filming obvious, and the riot squads will back down. They don´t want the publicity.

The goal of Dem presidents and their minions since Carter has been to take down America so the UN one world order could be one step closer to actual control.
What fools because if they win they will be next because the Muslim world has no intention to join the UN World Government.
The UN 1996 new charter that failed has been hidden since the failure to reach a start to ratification then. In other words Clinton failed to remove American guns the move that is necessary to make the final push.
Gordon Liddy with others published that treaty on the then minor internet and the outline should have been imprinted into every American mind.

You´d like to believe that there exist patriots in positions of power who have seen enough, are prepared to put a stop to it and have the influence and
wherewithal to bring it about. Nixon´s people did it, and he didn´t present nearly the clear and present danger to the country that Obama and his Gestapo do.

I believe he and those who he really represents are attempting to provoke a fight which will be leveraged to call for more government less freedom, reign in the second amendment. He has pretended to support it now he needs a pivot point to justify what has always been one of his priorities. They need the patriot base to make fools of themselves before momentum swings our way.

John Kerry’s big blunder in
seeking an Israel-Gaza cease-fire
Washington Post Writers Group, by David Ignatius    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/28/2014 4:50:14 PM     Post Reply
Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians. Kerry’s error has been to put so much emphasis on achieving a quick halt to the bloodshed that he has solidified the role of Hamas, the intractable, unpopular Islamist group that leads Gaza, along with the two hard-line Islamist nations that are its key supporters, Qatar and Turkey. In the process, he has undercut not simply the Israelis but also the Egyptians and the Fatah movement that runs the Palestinian Authority, all of which want to see an end to

Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved. “Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com. Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the

President Obama on Monday announced a long-waited nominee for the job of "religious freedom" ambassador, after the post sat vacant for nine months. Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, was chosen for the position of ambassador at large for international religious freedom, which is subject to Senate confirmation. (Snip) The post, however, has been problematic for the Obama administration since the beginning. The post, which was created for the purpose of promoting and defending religious freedom around the world, initially sat vacant for two years

A U.S. appeals court struck down Virginia´s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Monday, the second appeals court to come out in favor of gay marriage. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. "Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the (U.S. Constitution´s) Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance," the decision said. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down same-sex

Richmond, VA - Jury selection was on the agenda Monday for opening day in the corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife in Richmond. Bob and Maureen McDonnell are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the CEO of a dietary supplements company in exchange for helping promote his products. (Snip) McDonnell was a rising national star in the Republican party and was considered a possible Mitt Romney running mate in 2012 before the federal investigation ruined his political future. Romney reportedly donated $10,000 to the couple's legal defense

Pro-Palestinian activists in the San Francisco Bay Area are planning to block the Port of Oakland this Saturday to prevent two commercial shipping tankers partially owned by the Israel Corporation from docking and unloading. Protesters plan to block two Zim Integrated Shipping Ltd. commercial vessels, because 32 percent of the company is owned by Israel Corporation — Israel’s largest holding company, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Organizers of the event include the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, which describes itself as an anti-war group that “works actively to promote a just solution to the

Top House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement that includes $15 billion to help ease U.S. military veterans’ long waits for care, according to a summary congressional staffs are providing to veterans’ groups. The deal expands the type of non-VA hospitals and clinics where veterans could receive care, authorizes leases for 27 new VA facilities, and allows the Department of Veterans Affairs secretary to fire senior executives and create penalties for falsifying data. (Snip) The deal includes $10 billion in emergency funding to give veterans who can’t get a VA medical appointment the option to receive non-VA care, and $5 billion to pay

ACLU: Unprecedented U.S. spying has
chilling effect on reporters and sources

U.S. spying programs are making government sources too skittish to divulge sensitive information to reporters, especially on computer-based technology, making it difficult for journalists to hold powerful entities to account, according to a 120-page report released Monday. The American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch said it interviewed dozens of journalists, lawyers and senior government officials for its joint report, which found these professionals are “adopting elaborate steps or otherwise modifying their practices to keep communications, sources, and other confidential information secure in light of revelations of unprecedented U.S. government surveillance of electronic communications and

Where Are The Guns The

The United States government has delivered almost three quarters of a million weapons to Afghanistan’s army and police since 2004 but can’t track where those arms went, according to a new report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, known as SIGAR. (Snip) Training and equipping the Afghan National Police and Afghan National Army has been central to President Obama’s Afghanistan policy. But arming the police and army has been plagued by a lack of accountability, the report says. The weapons distributed to Afghan forces include 465,000 small arms, the report says. But that number might not be accurate,

Ohio sheriff sends bill to
Mexico for cost of jailing illegals

The sheriff of Butler County in Ohio said his community has become so overwhelmed with illegals that he sent a letter to Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto — billing him for the costs associated with jailing them. His letter and bill didn’t really get the intended response. “The [U.S.] federal government sends me a letter and said I violated a treaty of like, 1790,” Sheriff Richard Jones said, The Blaze reported. “I [had] sent him a bill for the prisoners that are in my jail. They came here illegally. I’ve not gotten any money from them, but I billed them so much. And I’ll tell you what I got in return: My life was threatened.”

Drone schools spring up in the US

Capitalizing on an anticipated boom in the unmanned-aircraft industry, several US universities and colleges are launching training programs for future drone pilots. The problem: the US Federal Aviation Administration says its rules barring commercial use of drones apply to teaching programs as well, effectively prohibiting students from hands-on instruction. So the schools are teaching tomorrow’s drone pilots with simulators, textbooks and more novel workarounds. (Snip) “We don’t have to do much recruiting. They come to us,” said Dan Macchiarella, Embry-Riddle’s chairman of aeronautical science.

President Obama is re-naming an African fellowship program in honor of the late South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela. Obama will make the announcement Monday during a town-hall-style meeting with guests who participated in the inaugural — and soon to be re-named — Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, officials said. Discussing the fellowship program during a visit to South Africa last year, Obama said that "we want to engage leaders and tomorrow´s leaders in figuring out how we can best work together." The meeting is one in a series of upcoming events dedicated to U.S.-African relations,

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV´s Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I´m not a military planner but Hamas puts it´s missiles, it´s rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

Javier Bardem did not hold back on his feelings of disgust regarding the escalating violence in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. In an open letter sent out to the Spanish media over the weekend, he called Israel’s actions against Gaza a “genocide” and said he was outraged and ashamed by the "brutality" of the attacks. “In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is NO place for distance or neutrality,” Bardem wrote in the letter. “It’s a way of occupation and extermination waged against a people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances and children

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Washington – During an awards ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama whispered in the ear of superstar musician Linda Ronstadt that he once had a crush on her. The President admitted to the crowd afterwards that, "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a crush on her back in the day " Ronstadt joined Obama on stage, along with 11 other recipients of the 2013 National Medal of Arts. No word from the singer of such hits as "You´re no good," "Desperado," "It´s so easy," and "Blue Bayou," on what she said back to the President. Obama also thanked

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to
