John Kerry Continues to Defend Islam on World Stage

Perhaps one of Democrat’s biggest idiots. Islam unquestionably calls for the killings and terrorist acts being committed worldwide. This is some very strange version of Hope and Change:

“We have to keep our heads,” Kerry said. “The biggest error we could make would be to blame Muslims for crimes…that their faith utterly rejects,”

A tale of two presidents…

Interesting study of two Presidents:

President George W. Bush’s Speech
after the capture of Saddam Hussein

“The success of yesterday’s mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq . The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator’s’ footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them! ”

Barrack Hussein Obama’s Speech after the killing of Osama bin Laden

“And so shortly after taking office , I directed Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground . I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.”

See any differences? Just asking…

Uganda: Imam allegedly beats 15-year-old daughter to death for converting to Christianity

This is a fact. And many in the West will die until it’s realized.

Muhammad said: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.” There is only disagreement over whether the law applies only to men, or to women also – some authorities hold that apostate women should not be killed, but only imprisoned in their houses until death.

» Obama Handcuffs America in War on Terrorism » Commentary — GOPUSA

This is exactly right. And excellent article.

Obama spends more time downplaying and denying Islamic terrorism and releasing dangerous terrorists from Guantanamo Bay than he does leading this nation in a war against it. That’s because he is not committed to a war against it — and for another two years, he will be our commander in chief. God help us all.

French Islamist mini-states grow into problem out of government control – Washington Times

Interesting for a religion of peace. No?

Nothing to worry about, folks. The massacre in France is  just workplace violence.

Over 1,000 French supermarkets are selling Islamic books that call for jihad and the killing of non-Muslims.

As Medicaid Rolls Swell, Cuts in Payments to Doctors Threaten Access to Care – NYTimes.com

This is interesting… and troubling.

The Affordable Care Act provided a big increase in Medicaid payments for primary care in 2013 and 2014. But the increase expires on Thursday — just weeks after the Obama administration told the Supreme Court that doctors and other providers had no legal right to challenge the adequacy of payments they received from Medicaid.The impact will vary by state, but a study by the Urban Institute, a nonpartisan research organization, estimates that doctors who have been receiving the enhanced payments will see their fees for primary care cut by 43 percent, on average.

Censorship: 38 journalism groups slam Obamas politically-driven suppression of news | WashingtonExaminer.com

That this is happening should surprise no one… That there is finally some pushback by journalists is what IS surprising…

This is just part and parcel of Obama’s socialist agenda. The old soviets had a saying about their newspaper called the “Truth.” They said there is no truth in the news, and no news in the Truth. We are very close to that today in America.

In unprecedented criticism of the White House, 38 journalism groups have assailed the presidents team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials and overall “politically-driven suppression of the news.”In a letter to President Obama, the 38, led by the Society of Professional Journalists, said efforts by government officials to stifle or block coverage has grown for years and reached a high-point under his administration despite Obamas 2008 campaign promise to provide transparency.

JW Obtains IRS Documents Showing Lerner in Contact With DOJ about Potential Prosecution of Tax-Exempt Groups | Judicial Watch

The lawlessness in the Obama administration is manifest. You won’t read about this in any mainstream media. Just bow down to our Dear Leader:

“These new emails show that the day before she broke the news of the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner was talking to a top Obama Justice Department official about whether the DOJ could prosecute the very same organizations that the IRS had already improperly targeted,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The IRS emails show Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted in the IRS scandal.

Obama has Proposed 442 Tax Hikes Since Taking Office | Americans for Tax Reform

Good grief.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015.

The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare.

Exclusive: John Cornyn Rips Chuck Schumer’s Media ‘Shield Law’

I write about this in my novel. They are called “Advocacy Networks” approved by the Dear Leader. So now, we see democrats seeking it in reality. Does anyone think this will be different than the IRS targeting conservatives? You must spout the liberal mantra to be approved… which means attacking the Tea Party, gun rights, etc…

“They want to pick and choose which journalists are covered,” the Texan Republican told Breitbart News. “In other words, if you’re a blogger they might not cover you, but if you work for the New York Times they might. Given the changes in the way we get information and the way we consume news, that really smacks to me in essence of government licensing who’s an official ‘journalist’ for the purposes of a shield law and who’s not. If there is one thing I can glean from the First Amendment, it is that government should not be in the business of licensing the news media.”

Rep Keith Ellison on Obamacare-Related Job Losses: Americans Work Too Much Anyway

Democrat brilliance:

“We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout.”

News from The Associated Press

How interesting… Barry’s lawyers caught lying…

“This court is troubled that the governments revelations regarding NSAs acquisition of Internet transactions mark the third instance in less than three years in which the government has disclosed a substantial misrepresentation regarding the scope of a major collection program,” Bates added in a footnoted passage that had portions heavily blacked out.

Google Pressure Cookers and Backpacks, Get a Visit from the Cops – Philip Bump – The Atlantic Wire

So the Obama bots are looking at ONLY metadata?

Michele Catalano was looking for information online about pressure cookers. Her husband, in the same time frame, was Googling backpacks. Wednesday morning, six men from a joint terrorism task force showed up at their house to see if they were terrorists. Which prompts the question: Howd the government know what they were Googling?

UNODA – Small Arms and Light Weapons

This is where Obama is going with the Small Arms Treaty. Check out this language from the United Nations:

If national law enforcement officials were able to trace small arms back to their last legitimate owner, who might then be held accountable, this would form an effective measure against illicit trade and diversion. For that purpose, it is essential that the weapon be marked upon production and import, and that appropriate records be kept. Existing stocks should also be marked.

The Smoking Gun in Plain Sight

Brilliant words from Herbert Meyer:

I am merely pointing out that President Obama has been going about the business of demonizing his political enemies, and then hiring thugs to destroy them without regard to the law, in precisely the same way that Hitler and his fascists did it in Germany.  This isnt an accusation; its an observation.
