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.

Hillary Clinton requires
´presidential suite,´ stenographer
for speaking engagements, report says

Hillary Clinton has not yet announced whether she will be running for president in 2016, but a new report suggests that she has a taste for luxury to match any world leader. The Las Vegas Review-Journal obtained Clinton´s contract and related documents related to a scheduled October 13 speech at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Foundation fundraiser. The documents show that Clinton received $225,000 to speak at the fundraiser, a discount from her initial $300,000 asking price. But the fee was only the first of Clinton´s many stipulations. The former Secretary of State insists on staying in the ‘presidential suite’ of a luxury hotel of her

Haemi, South Korea - Pope Francis on Sunday championed a "creative" Catholicism in Asia that reflects the region´s diversity, and urged countries like China and North Korea to respond by fostering a proper dialogue with the Vatican. (Snip) But nearly a dozen Asian countries have no formal ties with the Holy See, including China -- the great elephant in the Vatican´s Asian room -- which bars its Catholics from recognising the pope´s authority. In a "spirit of openness", Francis appealed for a fresh start based on mutual respect and cooperation. "I honestly hope that those countries of your continent with whom the Holy See does not enjoy

Hillary didn’t ‘hug it out

Hug it out? Not a chance. Despite widespread predictions that Hillary Clinton and President Obama would kiss and make up when they sat down at a friend’s birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard last week, sources inside the Clinton camp tell me that instead of a hug-a-thon the meeting turned into a tense, awkward freeze-a-thon. Clinton was all smiles when she showed up at the Farm Neck Club in Oak Bluffs (Snip) Clinton was seated near Obama and joined him in a toast to the guest of honor, but she pointedly made no attempt to express her regrets or apologize for criticizing the president’s foreign policy.

A Medicare scam that just kept rolling

Los Angeles - In the little office where they ran the scam, a cellphone would ring on Sonia Bonilla’s desk. That was the sound of good news: Somebody had found them a patient. When Bonilla picked up answered the phone, one of the scam’s professional “patient recruiters” would read off the personal data of a senior citizen. Name. DOB. Medicare ID number. Bonilla would hang up and call Medicare, the enormous federal health-insurance program for those over 65. She asked a single question: Had the government ever bought this patient a power wheelchair? No? Then the scam was off and running. “If they did not have one,

Littleton, CO - Perched on the edge of his chair in a study overflowing with books, Pastor Gino Geraci reels off the Republicans he no longer believes in. His friend Mike Huckabee is an “odd bird” who couldn’t win a general election. Sarah Palin doesn’t inspire him with her “cliched responses to difficult questions.” Rand Paul is “fascinating but frustrating.” Of all the Republicans weighing a bid for president in 2016, the only one who puts a smile on Geraci’s face is doctor-turned-conservative-media-darling Ben Carson. And yet, Geraci concedes, Carson is “not in the mainstream” and has little chance of ever being elected.

Medicare to Start
Paying Doctors Who Coordinate
Needs of Chronically Ill Patients

Washington - In a policy change, the Obama administration is planning to pay doctors to coordinate the care of Medicare beneficiaries, amid growing evidence that patients with chronic illnesses suffer from disjointed, fragmented care. Although doctors have often performed such work between office visits by patients, they have historically not been paid for it. Starting in January, Medicare will pay monthly fees to doctors who manage care for patients with two or more chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes and depression. (Snip) With the new initiative, Medicare will adopt some of the techniques devised by health maintenance

With Aid Doctors Gone,
Ebola Fight Grows Harder

When people started dying of Ebola in Liberia, Clarine Vaughn faced a wrenching choice: Should she send home, for their own health and safety, four American doctors working for Heartt, the aid group she led there? Or should she keep them in the country without proper supplies or training to fight the virulent, contagious disease, which was already spreading panic? (Snip) The departure of many Western development workers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the West African countries hit hardest by Ebola, has further weakened the region’s decrepit, understaffed health systems at the very moment they are facing one of

The United States on Saturday launched several more air strikes in Iraq at Islamic State, including ones targeting members of the Islamic militant group who are positioned around the country’s largest dam. Islamic State captured the dam last month in its surprisingly swift and deadly run across northern Iraq in recent months. A senior U.S. official told Fox News roughly six air strikes have been launched so far on Saturday. The official also said the focus of the strikes is to protect the country’s critical infrastructure and that the U.S. carried out the strikes at the request of the government of Iraq, which thinks Islamic State forces can no longer

Suddenly, as you may have noticed, millennials are everywhere. Not that this group of people born after 1980 and before 2000 — a giant cohort now estimated to number at least 80 million Americans, more than the baby boom generation — was ever invisible. What’s changed is their status. Coddled and helicoptered, catered to by 24-hour TV cable networks, fussed over by marketers and college recruiters, dissected by psychologists, demographers and trend-spotters, the millennial generation has come fully into its own. The word “millennial,” whether as noun or adjective, has monopolized the nonstop cultural conversation, invariably freighted

One afternoon in October 2009, a former banking executive named Aaron Siegel waited impatiently in the master bedroom of a house in Buffalo that served as his office. (Snip) On average, they paid just 4.5 cents on the dollar. These debt buyers collect what they can and then sell the remaining accounts to other buyers, and so on. Those who trade in such debt call it “paper.” That was Aaron Siegel’s business. It turned out to be a good one. Siegel quickly discovered that when he bought the right kind of paper, the profits were astronomical. He obtained one portfolio for $28,527, collected more than $90,000 on it in just six weeks and

A defiant Perry calls

Austin - Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Saturday that the indictment against him was an “outrageous” abuse of power and vowed to fight it. “This indictment amounts to nothing more than abuse of power and I cannot and will not allow that to happen,” Perry said at a news conference on Saturday. Perry spoke a day after a grand jury indicted the Republican on two felony counts of abuse of power for making good on a veto threat. He dismissed the prosecution as a “farce.” A special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he promised publicly to veto $7.5 million over two

Austin, Texas - A grand jury indicted Governor Rick Perry Friday for his attempts to remove Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg from office after she was arrested for driving while intoxicated last year in a case that made national headlines. In April 2013, Lehmberg was arrested after a witness called 911, describing her as driving erratically, swerving back and forth into the bike lane, and into oncoming traffic. Officers at the scene reportedly found an open bottle of vodka in her car, and a blood sample obtained later that evening purportedly showed a blood alcohol level of 0.239—almost three times the legal limit—

One of the nation’s best radio talk show hosts, Hugh Hewitt, interviewed Joe Scarborough, the host of one of the best political shows on television. According to Mr. Scarborough This is a president that does go out of his way to show that he’s not paying attention to what anybody says. He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do, and he’s going to be stubborn about it. He is politically, he is either politically tone deaf or he just doesn’t give a damn.

President Obama won´t make any major announcements on immigration reform during his secretive mid-vacation trip back to Washington next week, the White House said Wednesday. The president is expected to return to the White House on Sunday, but officials won´t say why Obama is taking the unusual, and costly, trip back to Washington. He´s expected to return to Martha´s Vineyard, where he´s been vacationing, on Tuesday. Speculation has circled around whether Obama might make an announcement of executive actions he´s taking on immigration reform, or a surprise visit from a foreign leader. But the White House is "not anticipating a major announcement on

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

I’m a Democrat. I’ve been a Democrat my entire life. I used to utter those two sentences with pride and would shout them from the highest rooftops. Now, I’m almost embarrassed to say those words. I almost can’t articulate my political affiliation in public (or on the radio) without immediately offering an apology and an explanation. How did I get here? I’ve been asking myself that question a lot lately. The more I ask it, the more I come to the realization that I haven’t changed all that much. Sure, I’m a little older … OK, a lot older. I

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

President Barack Obama and his family enjoyed a leisurely bike ride on Friday while vacationing on the island of Martha´s Vineyard. The president, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughter Malia were seen cycling together down the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest bike path outside West Tisbury, Massachusetts, this afternoon. It was not immediately clear where Sasha Obama, the younger Obama daughter, was during the family outing. Sasha did not accompany her family to Martha´s Vineyard when they left Washington, D.C. last Saturday.

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

NBC News reports: U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, including a caisson, two escort platoons, casket team, firing party, colors team, and a caparisoned horse. The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place. The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right

Current TV co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have launched a fraud and breach-of-contract lawsuit claiming that Al Jazeera is withholding money from its $500 million purchase of the cable news network. (Snip) "Al Jazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago," says Boies in a statement. "We are asking the Court to order Al Jazeera America to stop wrongfully withholding the escrow funds that belong to Current´s former shareholders." According to Boies, the plaintiff is also filing the case under seal with some objection. "We do not believe that
