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.

The Daily Star reported: Syrian Kurdish forces have withdrawn from around 60 villages in the face of an advance by Islamic State militants in northern Syria, a monitoring group said on Friday. The Islamic State militants were using heavy weapons including artillery and tanks, said Rami Abdulrahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The ISIS fighters took women as hostages. Yahoo reported: Sitting in a field after just crossing the border, Abdullah Shiran, a 24-year-old engineer, recounted scenes of horror in his village of Shiran, about 10 km (six miles) from Kobani. “IS came and attacked and we

A Writerly Chill at Bezos’ Fire

When Jeff Bezos tells writers to keep quiet, they obey. Every fall, Mr. Bezos, the founder of Amazon, hosts Campfire, a literary weekend in Santa Fe, N.M. Dozens of well-known novelists have attended, but they do not talk about the abundance of high-end clothing and other gifts, the lavish meals, the discussion under the desert stars by Neil Armstrong or the private planes that ferried some home. Writers loved it. There was no hard sell of Amazon, or soft sell, either. The man who sells half the books in America seemed to want nothing more each year than for everyone to have a good time. All he asked in return was silence.

This is a car that is made almost entirely out of plastic. The Strati took 44 hours to make, and it´s completely driveable. It´s lighter and, if you believe its creators, also stronger than its metal counterparts. And it just might be the future of automotive technology everywhere. Local Motors, the Phoenix-based 3D-printing company that built the car with help from Oak Ridge National Lab and the manufacturing company SABIC, says it´s the first to 3D print both a body and chassis together. Other models, such as the Urbee, also use 3D-printed parts, but with a more traditionally manufactured frame. Everything in the Strati that could be made

Islamabad - Fourteen Pakistani detainees were released from U.S. custody in Bagram Prison in Afghanistan and repatriated to Pakistan on Saturday, a Pakistani legal firm representing some of the prisoners said. Justice Project Pakistan has been representing several Bagram detainees since 2010 in a bid to force the Pakistani government to bring them home. So far no information has been provided by the Pakistani authorities on the names of the released detainees or their current whereabouts, said Sarah Belal, a lawyer with Justice Project Pakistan. One of the released detainees is 29-year-old Abdul Halim Saifullah, Belal said,

Is Obama whitewashing a traitor?

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The Nusra Front, al-Qaeda´s affiliate in Syria, has killed one of the Lebanese soldiers it had been holding in captivity, according to Lebanese security sources and a Twitter statement. The killing of the soldier, if confirmed, will be the first to have been carried out by the Nusra Front, which along with ISIL is holding over a dozen more Lebanese soldiers captive. The Twitter statement on an account affiliated with Nusra Front said on Friday that the soldier had become "the first victim of the intransigence of the Lebanese army which has become a plaything in the hands of the Iranian party", referring to Hezbollah.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Texas court throws out

A Texas court has thrown out a law prohibiting ‘up the skirt’ photography, on the grounds the previous ruling violated Texas’ citizens’ constitutional right to freedom of expression. The Texas Court of Appeals ruled 8-1 to strike down part of a law which bans taking images of another person in public without their consent and with the intention to “arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person”, criticising the “paternalistic” intrusion into peoples’ private right to be aroused. Debjani Roy, deputy director of Hollaback!, a New York-based anti-street harassment group, speaking to the Guardian, claimed the decision was “a huge violation and

Blackwater Founder: We Could Stop ISIS

Erik Prince has a message for ISIS: You’re lucky Blackwater is gone. On Friday night, the controversial founder of the private military company had plenty to say about what the organization he once ran could be doing in the fight against the so-called Islamic State—and also why Republicans need to stop being such losers. “It’s a shame the [Obama] administration crushed my old business, because as a private organization, we could’ve solved the boots-on-the-ground issue, we could have had contracts from people that want to go there as contractors; you don’t have the argument of U.S. active duty going back

Vatican names Spokane bishop

The Vatican on Saturday appointed Bishop Blase Cupich of Spokane, Wash., to succeed Cardinal Francis George as the leader of the Archdiocese of Chicago. (Snip) Cupich, like the cardinal he will succeed, opposes same-sex marriage and, in his two previous jobs as bishop, has been outspoken in his advocacy for the poor. But unlike Francis George, Cupich is widely described as more of a moderate, a priest who is following the pastoral example of the new pope and who may come to frustrate conservative and liberal Catholics alike. “He’s open-minded. He’s pastoral. He’s pro-life,” said the Rev. Tom Reese, a senior analyst for the

Dozens of hostages seized by Islamic State (IS) from the Turkish consulate in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul have been freed and are back in Turkey. The 49 were taken to the southern Turkish city of Sanliurfa, officials say, and are now in Ankara. Details are unclear but President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it had been a "detailed and secret operation". The hostages were seized after IS militants overran Mosul in a rapid advance in June. Turkey has refused direct involvement in the military campaign against IS partly because of fears over the hostages´ safety. The 49 hostages were employees from the consulate - 46 Turks and

Seoul - An American recently sentenced to six years hard labor by a North Korean court pretended to have secret U.S. information and was deliberately arrested in a bid to become famous and meet U.S. missionary Kenneth Bae in a North Korean prison, state media said on Saturday. Matthew Miller, 25, of Bakersfield, California, had prepared his story in advance and written in a notebook that he was seeking refuge after failing in an attempt to collect information about the U.S. government, state media said. "He perpetrated the above-said acts in the hope of becoming a 'world famous guy' and the 'second Snowden' through intentional

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush
