Trey Gowdy questioned Gregory Starr, Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security, as part of the review board investigation on the American consulate in Benghazi two years ago.  Mr. Gowdy read from a 1999 Accountability Review Board report to Mr. Starr:

“We are disturbed that the inadequacy of resources to provide security against terrorist attacks.  We are disturbed at the relative low priority accorded security concerns and we praise the ambassador for seeking security enhancements long before the attack.”

Mr. Starr did not know that this was an ARB report from the 1998 attacks on Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, in which Mr. Gowdy said that “you can lay it almost perfectly over what happened in Benghazi.”

Gowdy wanted to know if there was a government to contact in Libya in 2012 in the event of a security breach.  Starr answered, “No, not at that time.”

Gowdy continued his questioning of the Assistant Secretary of State:

“Does the State Department still accept these recommendations from the 1999 ARB and is it being done?”

To which Starr answered “Yes.”

Gowdy concluded this session:

“Mr. Stevens was equally clear that he needed help. He was equally clear that the situation was getting worse in Benghazi. He was equally clear in asking the people who sent him there to represent us to provide adequate security, and none was forthcoming. With that I would recognize the ranking member for his closing remarks.”

Megyn Kelly

Former Weather Underground domestic terrorist Bill Ayers gave a multi-part interview to FOX host Megyn Kelly a few months ago, and decided to express his experience with her to Salon magazine.

“I had never even seen Megyn Kelly,” he said. “She struck me as a very strange person. She’s like a cyborg constructed in the basement of Fox News. She’s very striking, but very metallic, very cold. Her eyes are very cold.”

Kelly was quick to respond to his comments on her Twitter account:

She continued to dissect Ayers’ comments about her as the host and the staff couldn’t help but laugh:

“The man’s got a point, they can be cold,” Kelly said. “Not as cold as those of the three people killed while making bombs for Ayers’ group, but icy at times. Especially when I’m looking at a serial bomber who terrorizes so many including an innocent little boy.”

“Well I looked up ‘cyborg’ and it’s a superhuman being, so I’m choosing to take that as a compliment,” she said chuckling.

Kelly finished the clip by saying that despite her “cold eyes,” Ayers was brave enough to appear on her show.

Read More and Comment: Is External Terrorism Really The Biggest Threat To Our Security?]]>
Photo credit: shutterstock.com

We were told last week that the greatest threat to our well-being today is some new Mohamedean group ISIS, which is ravaging the Middle East. We have also been advised that the best security is for us to go to war against this new threat. So last Wednesday, the impostor essentially declared war against ISIS.

We have been told that we will lead a sustained bombing campaign against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria. Administration officials acknowledge that this could last several years. The impostor requested Congressional approval for hundreds of millions of dollars to train and equip “moderate” Syrian rebels; and although he promised no boots on the ground, he actually committed to send U.S. troops to “advise” Iraqi security forces. How is that no boots on the ground? He made all kinds of promises in that speech that I consider doubtful of fulfillment given his record of mendacity.

It seems to me that the same old song and dance is being played before us as we are being told our greatest security lies in fomenting another war with another group of people half way around the world. Is that really the case? Is the greatest threat to our security another group of idolaters who worship the moon? You heard correctly: Allah is the moon idol, the only one Mohamed preserved of the 300-plus idols of Mecca. That is why the crescent moon is their symbol.

I contend that the greatest threat to our security is not these idolaters who worship the moon idol; it is the One True God. The great concern with external terrorism is a slight of hand. There is a greater threat from within, a terror threat resulting from our assault against a Holy and Omnipotent God, the Only One True God, the God of the Bible. We are witnessing the rapid deterioration of a nation before our very eyes. We have become one nation against God, rather than one nation under God.

Our good friend, Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore, wrote: “While truth and law were founded on the God of all creation, man now, through law, denies the truth and calls it ‘separation.’ No longer does man see a need for God when he’s in full control, for the only truth self-evident is in the latest poll. But with man as his own master we fail to count the cost, our precious freedoms vanish and our liberty is lost. Children are told they can’t pray in school and they teach them evolution, when will they see the fear of God is the only true solution?”

The roots of the demise in America lie in our understanding and belief about the One True God. A loss of understanding of His Greatness, His Power, and above all His Holiness is at the bottom of what has gone wrong with America.  That fact alone presents the greatest threat to our security and our liberty.

John Brown, Nineteenth-century Scottish theologian, said that “Holiness does not consist in mystic speculations, enthusiastic fervors, or uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as God wills.”* In other words, it means to have a Biblical worldview, especially in what we understand about the One True God.  Now this encounter of the Children of Israel with God at Mount Sinai has a practical message for us.

Cheerleaders

Under pressure from outside organizations threatening legal action, the administration at Oneida High School in Tennessee decided to discontinue a tradition of public prayer before football games. Instead of a prayer, the school instituted a moment of silence.

According to christiannews.net, that decision to ban pre-game prayer didn’t sit well with one group — the school’s cheerleading squad.

During a recent moment of silence, cheerleader Asia Canada began reciting the Lord’s Prayer out loud. Her fellow cheerleaders, and even the cheerleaders from the opposing team, joined her.

“When they started saying it, the crowd started saying the Lord’s Prayer,” she told reporters. “And by the time the prayer was over with, the entire stadium was saying it.”

The co-captains of the Oneida High School cheerleading squad, Asia Canada and Alley Meyers, went on Fox News to explain their passionate belief in pre-game prayer and their willingness to stand up to the school administration.

“Our community needs God in it, especially at football games. We pray for the safety of each and every player out there and the cheerleaders and the fans for the drive home,” [Meyers] said.

Lecrae

It’s not common to see a Christian artist atop the Billboard 200; but this week, Christian rapper Lecrae’s album “Anomaly” is the nation’s number one album.

“Anomaly” sold 88,000 copies, according to Billboard, bumping the then-top spot held by Maroon 5 with “V.”

The album is also the first ever to top both the Gospel Albums chart and the Billboard 200.

Lecrae admits that he himself is an anomaly:

“A mentor told me years ago, ‘Lecrae you’re not in the widget and gimmick business, you’re in the people business. As long as you take care of people, they’ll take care of you,’” the rapper says in his bio. “So we’ve always looked at it as if we’re not trying to sell CD’s we’re trying to take care of people – give them messages of hope and inspiration.”

Lecrae may not quite be a household name yet; but after this exposure, that could very well change.

It’s inspiring to see a Christian album receiving this amount of notoriety, especially during the times we live in. Let’s continue to keep this album on top and continue to spread the Good News.

When speaking to certain groups, it might be advisable for a woman whose life consists of near-constant vacations and a celebrity lifestyle to avoid complaining about how rough she has it. Some feel a hospital full of sick children and their parents is such a group.

Nevertheless, Michelle Obama used her appearance at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. to lament the pitfalls of her glamorous White House existence.

She suggested that her favorite aspect of being first lady is “being able to do stuff like this,” expressing her pleasure at “meeting kids like you guys.”

At that point, Obama began to bellyache about her own troubles to the group of young patients.

“Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the president and trying to live a life like that,” she insisted, “it can be hard.”

After concluding that she could “be here all day,” her audience began to laugh, the Weekly Standard reported. It is unclear whether the point everyone found humorous was her assertion that being first lady is a drag, the fact that she spent less than 30 minutes with the kids she could purportedly spend an entire day with, or some other comical remark. There were a few positive responses to her visit, even from Obama critics.

Many others, however, felt the entire trip was nothing more than a photo opportunity to Obama. Even worse, reports indicate that the high-profile visitor resulted in parents being prohibited from seeing their children and even delayed some vital medical procedures.

missing-flight-MH370

As Western Journalism recently reported, investigators in Australia have not completely lost hope of recovering a jet that disappeared off of that country’s western coast earlier this year. While Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan could not guarantee the effort would ultimately be successful, he assured those who lost loved ones aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that the search will go on.

“I don’t want to raise the hopes of the families of the people who were lost in this accident and then dash them again,” he said, later adding that he thinks search teams “have a reasonable prospect” of finding the fuselage somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

The latest recovery mission will launch the last week of this month, initially involving a Malaysian sea craft called GO Phoenix. Previous reports indicated the underwater search would begin by Sept. 22, but the ship required some maintenance before its launch.

Instead of retracing the path of previous efforts, investigators are focusing on an area of the Indian Ocean to the south of those unsuccessful searches. According to the Irish Mirror, this revamped plan was based on new analysis of the flight path that indicates MH370 might have veered south prior to crashing into the sea.

“Our plan has a sequence of priorities,” Dolan said. “It’s all about probability. We’ll start with the highest probability.”

Following the lead of GO Phoenix, a craft commissioned by Australian and Malaysian officials from Dutch firm Fugro Survey will initiate a concurrent underwater search. That ship will reportedly focus on a section of the Indian Ocean even further south than the Malaysian ship’s search area.

Both ships are expected to use attached sonar receptors to scour the underwater landscape for evidence of the plane’s fuselage. Investigators expect the entire mission to take as long as one year.

The special prosecutor tasked with going after Texas Governor Rick Perry is in some hot water of his own.

KWTX reports that Michael McCrum, the lawyer appointed to prosecute Perry in Travis County, Texas, could himself be facing six months in prison for telling a witness in a manslaughter case in a different jurisdiction to “get lost for awhile,” prohibiting her from testifying.

Texas Lawyer writes that McCrum denies the allegations:

“I adamantly deny I did anything wrong with respect to any witness.  I vehemently deny I did anything wrong.”

However, Cliff Herber, the first District Attorney in Bexar County, (which includes San Antonio), says the witness “felt intimidated by Mr. McCrum not to appear in court.”

Herberg said:

“The court gave Mr. McCrum an opportunity to respond in writing to explain his conduct, and after reading all of that, direct us to file the motion for contempt.”

If found guilty, McCrum could face a fine up to $500 and six months in jail, according to Texas Lawyer.

Perry was indicted last month by a grand jury in Travis County, Texas (which includes Houston) for withholding funds for a statewide public integrity unit after the local district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, refused to resign for being caught driving under the influence of alcohol.

Perry’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the charges:

“This attempt to criminalize the political process should not be tolerated by this Court or any Texas court…Otherwise, overzealous prosecutors will be given free reign to use the grand jury process to chill political decisions by Texas’ Governors.”

The next court date for Perry is slated to be October 13.

Last week on HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher commented that Fox News is the sole reason that Americans are divided politically.

Maher: “I feel like the reason people are so polarized is Fox News.”

On Thursday’s The Five, Greg Gutfeld said that Maher was right, otherwise we would all be in lock-step with the rest of the media.

Gutfeld: “This Fox segregation thrives on campus where polarization is enforced disguised as tolerance.  The left deems your position hateful, which allows for their mob rule.”

reid

Senator Harry Reid’s disdain for, and attacks against, the Koch brothers are well documented, highly controversial and often written about. A recent Politico piece detailed a handful of the Nevada Democrat’s belligerent tirades against the two businessmen, Charles and David Koch, private citizens known to be big financial backers of conservative causes and candidates.

The Senate majority leader, whose unscripted attacks can veer into bellicosity and take liberties with facts, spoke on the Senate floor last October and appeared to blame billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch for the government shutdown.

After Reid’s ad-libbed comments, his office developed a strategy for a coordinated campaign that’s expected to resume this month and carry clear through Election Day and beyond. It’s been shaped and reinforced by Reid’s staff, including former operatives of the liberal Center for American Progress, which had pioneered Koch-bashing politics years earlier.

So when the president that Reid constantly defends and protects does something that could be seen as a poke in the eye to the Koch-bashing senator…when Obama nominates a former Koch industries executive to a federal post, one has to wonder what’s going through the minds of both men.

As we learn from freebeacon.com, Victoria Hughes — at one time a grant-maker at the Charles Koch Foundation — has been tapped by the president for a spot on the Corporation for National and Community Service’s board of directors.

Hughes is currently a development officer at Ashland University. Prior to that position, she served in senior roles at Koch Industries, the company owned by libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, and for a number of Koch-affiliated groups.

There’s been no indication as yet from Harry Reid — who has blamed the men who used to employ Victoria Hughes for nearly every ill facing America today — if the Senate majority leader will allow the nomination to proceed.

Obama Chicago

When unveiling the project with great fanfare back in April, the president’s former Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, announced that a new Chicago high school would be named for Barack Obama.

A number of schools across the country have been named for Obama, but this was to be the first in his home state of Illinois. The operative word in the previous sentence — WAS.

The Chicago Tribune now reports that, without any fanfare whatsoever, Emanuel let it be known that Obama’s name will not adorn the new $60 million high school.

In announcing the decision, Mayor Emanuel indicated it was the result of community input…in other words, the people didn’t want Barack Obama’s name on their new school.

“Over the last few months, my team has listened to questions and concerns from the community, ranging from location of the building to the naming of the school. We take that community input seriously, which is why – as we continue to look for a thoughtful way to honor President Obama – we will look for other possible names for this future school,” Emanuel said in a statement.

Given the coverage of this development in the New York Daily News, one must ask how long it might be before cries of racism fill the Chicago air.

Two sources confirmed to The Daily News that the Chicago Board of Education has quietly decided to not go ahead with plans for the name of a new so-called selective enrollment public high school on the city’s predominantly white North Side.

The board has a policy that does not allow schools to be named after those who are still living. It will cite that stricture as reason for the about-face.

It’s not as though President Obama has been overlooked when it comes to the naming of schools. As ABC News noted even back in 2010:

He has been in the White House 18 months, but President Obama already has seven U.S. schools named after him, far more than his predecessor George W. Bush and a designation that educators say bucks the trend.

Still, given the fact that this about-face has happened in the city where Barack Obama started his political career, one might suppose the sting of rejection for the president could be rather painful.

Obama Authorizes Airstrikes

Barack Obama doesn’t want to deploy the military to fight the Islamic State – something they’re actually trained to do.

Instead, he’s ordered 3,000 troops to enter western Africa to fight the deadly Ebola virus, which has an 80% mortality rate.

It’s certainly another blemish on Obama’s report card. And it acts as further proof that Obama always ignores the secondary consequences of his actions.

This time around, though, Obama may have volunteered America for a biological genocide…

Blindly Heading Down a Slippery Slope

Consider this: Right now, the Ebola virus is passed by bodily fluids.

But, according to CNN, many of our nation’s top infectious disease experts are worried that this deadly virus could mutate. Once it mutates, it could be transmitted by a cough or a simple sneeze.

Dr. Michael Osterholm, Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN, “It’s the single greatest concern I’ve ever had in my 40-year public health career… I can’t imagine anything in my career – and this includes HIV – that would be more devastating to the world than a respiratory transmissible Ebola virus.”

As you can see, this already-dangerous situation could quickly escalate into a full-blown massacre in our country. And yet, thousands of soldiers are following Obama down a slippery slope into western Africa.

Undoubtedly, the Ebola virus is deadly and needs to be confronted. Nearly 2,500 Africans from five different countries have died during this latest Ebola outbreak. But I have to wonder why we’re sending billions of dollars to the United Nation’s World Health Organization (WHO), especially if they aren’t up for the task.

Presumably, the WHO is made up of doctors and healthcare professionals who might have a better grasp of the assignment than 18- to 20-year-old Army recruits who’ve been training for duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Obama’s move sets us up for potentially dangerous, secondary consequences, and I don’t think the United States is prepared for what those may be. What happens if the infection is somehow spread to the United States? A single exposed soldier could bring the disease here.

Everyone Loses

In his classic book, Economics in One Lesson, Journalist Henry Hazlitt points out the single largest fallacy of government action…

Hazlitt writes: “This is the persistent tendency of men, to see only the immediate effects of a given policy, or its effects only on a special group, and to neglect to inquire what the long-run effects of that policy will be not only on that special group, but on all groups. It’s the fallacy of overlooking secondary consequences.”

That’s exactly what Obama is doing right now, and he’s created a lose-lose situation for everyone. The military is kept from doing its job (which is to annihilate the Islamic State’s leaders and soldiers), and soldiers are being sent on a mission for which they’re woefully unprepared.

Meanwhile, as Obama turns a blind eye to the Islamic State, the group keeps killing more innocents. Only in Obama’s White House would such foolishness be contemplated, much less ordered.

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption, and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.

Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.

The Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago. Most of the damage has been inflicted upon the Bill of Rights—the first ten amendments to the Constitution—which historically served as the bulwark from government abuse.

Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, roving VIPR raids, and the like—all sanctioned by Congress, the White House, and the courts—a recitation of the Bill of Rights would understandably sound more like a eulogy to freedoms lost than an affirmation of rights we truly possess.

As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the Constitution has been on life support for some time now. We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document. However, the reality we must come to terms with is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

Consider the state of our freedoms, and judge for yourself whether this Constitution Day should be a day of mourning, celebration or a robust call to action:

The First Amendment is supposed to protect the freedom to speak your mind and protest in peace without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. In other words, Americans should not be silenced by the government. Yet despite the clear protections found in the First Amendment, the freedoms described therein are under constant assault.

America is more pro-life now than at any time in the last half century. Close to sixty percent of us believe human life begins at conception, and close to eighty percent believe it’s just plain wrong for taxpayers to fund the termination of unborn children. This attitude squares nicely with the Christian scriptures, although it is squarely out of step with most governmental leaders. (More on that later.) This pro-life majority came about as the fruit of thousands fighting the culture wars God’s way instead of their way.

In Luke 10, Jesus sends seventy apostles out to share His revelation throughout Israel and Judea. His instructions were explicit: bless everyone they could, hang out with them and enjoy their company, meet their needs as the Holy Spirit provided, and share their stories of encounter with the Living God. The world thinks this is a silly way to fight a war, but that depends on the war and the objective of winning. I praise God for our military people who stand ready to protect me and my family from violent invasion, but I don’t want to be protected against the lost. I want to be able to reach out to them as I was reached out to forty-five years ago. Most people who want abortions are lost beneath the pressure of their circumstances. Forty Days for Life has one of the best track records for relieving people in crisis of that pressure. They are one of the principal reasons for the current pro-life majority in America.

Founded by David Bereit and Shawn Carney in 2004, they gathered volunteers to stand in front of abortion clinics and do what Jesus told His seventy friends to do — in that order, nothing more and nothing less. Mareza is one of the people who got blessed in that first campaign which saw a near thirty percent reduction in abortions in Bryan College Station, Texas. She encountered a lone volunteer standing on a wintery morning in front of the clinic she and her friend entered to abort her baby. The man said, “God bless you. God bless both of you. Actually, God bless all three of you.” Through her tears – even now – Mareza says she marched into the clinic, turned around, and marched back out – still carrying the child inside her womb. Fueled by word of mouth, the movement went national in 2007 and was soon an international phenomenon. Today, six hundred twenty-five thousand volunteers conduct semi-annual campaigns in five hundred forty cities in twenty-four nations.

Forty Days has never wavered from their basic strategy of blessing. They count nine thousand unborn lives saved, not to mention the physical and spiritual trauma to moms they avert. (Abortion is not the safe procedure it is advertised to be.) More than one hundred workers have left their clinic jobs and nearly sixty centers have closed in the wake of the peaceful and loving witness of these humble people. Appointments for abortions tend to decline by seventy-five percent on days the volunteers are on duty. Their ministry addresses the number one cause of death in the world today – abortion – and gives people involved an opportunity to choose life.

Law enforcement agencies across the nation have come under fire recently for amassing military-grade weaponry and equipment citizens feel is too excessive. Critics on both sides of the aisle have lamented the increased acquisition of armored vehicles and other imposing resources under a program allowing local agencies to receive decommissioned and surplus military property.

Furthermore, Fox News reported earlier this month that countless weapons are now missing in departments nationwide. While the federal government has suspended the program in certain communities due to the demonstrable lack of accountability, one sheriff who has been particularly critical of the Obama administration asserted that his agency is facing a more permanent punishment.

Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio, often referred to as America’s toughest sheriff, said the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is, to his knowledge, the only agency whose participation in the program has been terminated.

Over the past two decades, Arpaio explained, the MCSO has lost track of nine weapons. As a result, his department is now being forced to return every item received through the federal program over that period. Among the equipment his agents must now give back are about 200 weapons, a pair of armored vehicles, and a large collection of night vision goggles. All of the equipment must be returned within four months.

The high-profile sheriff indicated that he is not deterred by the decision.

“It really doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “Look at the handguns. They probably don’t work anyway. We have plenty of our own.”

As for the night vision goggles, he said his agency is in the process of obtaining more effective versions.

“We were buying those anyway,” he explained. “We have the money.”

While he said there have been multiple efforts to recover the misplaced guns, many were lost before sophisticated tracking technology existed.

News this week from Los Angeles indicated that the city’s school system acquired a large cache of military weapons under the program. While the district will retain 61 rifles and a heavily armed vehicle, it is prepared to return the three grenade launchers obtained through the Pentagon program.

Following the long-awaited first public hearing on Benghazi by a select House committee established earlier this year, it became clear that the congressional inquiry into a 2012 terrorist attack that left four Americans dead is far from over. The Associated Press reported that hearings could easily last well into the next presidential election cycle.

Hillary Clinton, who served as secretary of state during the Benghazi attack and has faced significant criticism for her subsequent perceived obstructionism, is widely regarded as the early favorite among Democrats hoping to succeed Barack Obama. With a clear connection to the ongoing investigation, however, some see a continued focus on Benghazi as potentially detrimental to her fledgling candidacy.

As Western Journalism reported, an early campaign ad against Clinton asks viewers to demand the select committee compel her to testify. The panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, has yet to announce whether she will be called to answer questions.

He has made it clear, though, that he plans to leave no stone unturned in ascertaining the truth about that deadly day in Libya.

“Given the gravity of the issues at hand,” he said, “I am willing to risk answering the same question twice rather than risk not answering it once.”

There are currently no firm limitations on the scope or length of the panel’s investigation. Far from supporting a lengthy probe, a number of Democrats feel the formation of another body tasked with investigating the Benghazi incident is unnecessary.

Gowdy, a former prosecutor, responded to individuals who share such views.

“To those who believe it is time to move on,” he said, “to those who believe that there is nothing left to discover, that all the questions have been asked and answered and that we’ve learned all the lessons that there are to be learned: we have heard all of that before – and it was wrong then.”

Several weeks after announcing a plan to deploy Texas National Guard troops along his state’s border with Mexico, Texas Gov. Rick Perry received a critical letter from the neighboring country that just happened to coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Released last Wednesday, Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs used the press release to expound on a previous statement deriding Perry’s plan to deal with the illegal immigration crisis.

“The measure taken unilaterally by the Texas government is clearly erroneous and does not contribute to the efforts being made by our countries to create a secure border an a solution to the issue of immigration,” the statement read.

One week later, Perry published a letter he sent to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in response.

“As neighbors and economic partners,” he wrote, “Mexico and the United States are inextricably bound by shared interests and culture. As friends we might not always agree, but we must have an honest and respectful dialogue about the challenges we share, which is why I write to you today.”

Perry praised the steps Mexico has taken in recent years to facilitate a stronger economic and cultural bond between the two nations before responding directly to the criticism lodged against him.

“I believe strongly that our continued prosperity depends on a partnership that works collaboratively to address our shared border security challenges, rather than marginalizing the legitimate views of one side,” he wrote. “Our partnership cannot advance if we fail to acknowledge the serious issues associated with lax border enforcement along both of our southern borders.”

He cited the physical danger illegal immigrants face in crossing into the U.S. as well as the criminals who seek to exploit lax border security in causing harm to American citizens. Perry assured Nieto that he is dedicated to addressing the issue head-on, adding that he “will not be dissuaded by rhetoric of any kind.”

In much the same way he invited Barack Obama to discuss the crisis with him, Perry invited Nieto to Texas in the hopes that “the United States and Mexico can work as partners to find solutions to these challenges, now and in the future.”

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst also responded to Mexico’s statement, calling it “puzzling and frankly offensive that the government of Mexico chose the 13th anniversary of the most tragic attack on our homeland to call on Texas to throw open our international border to illegal immigration, trafficking in drugs and human lives, and potentially even terrorists who wish to harm America.”

Obamacare

Remember when the American Medical Association (AMA) — the nation’s largest physicians group — was rah-rah, gung-ho for ObamaCare? Remember how the AMA claimed the Affordable Care Act would, you know, make quality healthcare more affordable for more people? And that it would benefit doctors by helping to remedy how they’re reimbursed by Medicare?

Well, that was then…and this is now. That was theoretical “group think”…and this is the actual opinion of individual health care providers.

Now, by close to a 2-1 margin, America’s physicians say loud and clear that they are unhappy with ObamaCare — so unhappy, in fact, that “46% of doctors give President Obama’s healthcare law a “D” or an “F.”

The Washington Examiner shares details of the new survey taken by the Physicians Foundation:

…just 25 percent of those surveyed gave the law an “A” or a “B.”

The findings come from a survey that was emailed to “virtually every physician in the United States with an email address on record with the American Medical Association” this March through June as the law’s major provisions were taking effect, and received more than 20,000 responses from doctors.

One disgusted doctor responding to the survey said that ObamaCare is a prescription for failure:

“The system is broken and I am out of here as soon as I can. I am tired of being used, abused and lied to. Has anyone here woken up to the fact that we are always the last ones to be considered in the equation of change?”

On a related note, a new survey by Pew Research finds that health care remains a topic of critical concern among voters heading into the November midterms. And the negatives still outweigh the positives for the president’s signature health care law.

Overall, opinions of the Affordable Care Act have changed little over the past year. Currently, 44% approve of the law, while 52% disapprove.

This result, of course, will greatly disappoint Democrats, who have long banked on the fact that once people started directly experiencing the supposed benefits of the Affordable Care Act, they would come to like it.

Leading up to the 9/11 anniversary last week, several media outlets reported that the terrorist organization Islamic State, or ISIS, had operatives stationed near America’s porous southern border to await an impending strike on the homeland.

The reports stemmed from a Judicial Watch article citing numerous federal sources confirming that the border patrol and other law enforcement agencies had been put on high alert. Thankfully, no such attack took place last Thursday; however, the site reports this week that U.S. officials assure the threat still exists.

In response to its breaking coverage of this story, JW reported Wednesday that U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke called several federal agencies in an apparent effort to prevent sources from divulging any more information about the looming danger posed by Islamic terrorists in Mexico.

“He called the El Paso offices of the [Federal Bureau of Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Border Patrol] asking if anyone was talking to Judicial Watch,” a source told the outlet this week.

Following O’Rourke’s reported calls, high-ranking federal officials sent emails to the agencies threatening criminal prosecution against anyone revealing pertinent information regarding this issue, JW asserted.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for O’Rourke denied the congressman had any such conversation with the federal agents.

For JW, the sordid narrative seems suspicious:

“Is it possible that the administration called upon a trusted ally, a federal lawmaker from the targeted area, to silence the whistle blowers?” the article’s writer wondered.

In a newly published letter earlier this week rolling out its strengthened iCloud security Privacy Policy, Apple CEO Tim Cook assured customers that the company has never created a “backdoor” to gain access to any of its products.

Cook in the the letter, first pointed out by Mashable, assured customers that Apple does not ‘monetize’ information based on users’ product purchasing history.

“Our business model is very straightforward: We sell great products.  We don’t build a profile based on your email content or web browsing habits to sell to advertisers.  We don’t ‘monetize’ the information you store on your iPhone or in iCloud.  And we don’t read your email or your messages to get information to market to you.  Our software and services are designed to make our devices better.  Plain and simple.”

Cook also stresses that the tech giant has “never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services.”

“We have also never allowed access to our servers.  And we never will.”

When asked in June 2013 whether or not they participated in the National Security Agency’s (NSA) PRISM program, Apple gave this statement to CNBC, stressing “direct access,” rather than “back door” access.

“We have never heard of PRISM.  We do not provide any government agency with direct access to our servers, and any government agency requesting customer data must get a court order.”

In Apple’s “Government Information Requests” section, the company writes that the company “cannot bypass your passcode and…cannot access [user] data.  So it’s not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8.”

This data on iOS 8, according to Apple, includes photos, messages, email, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders if protected under a passcode.  Apple writes: “National security-related requests are not considered ‘Device Requests’ or Account Requests’ and are reported in a separate category altogether.”

As the debate rages over whether the president needs congressional authorization for war prior to his deployment of the military to degrade or destroy ISIS, the terrorist organization that none of us had heard about until a few months ago, the nation has lost sight of the more fundamental issue of President Obama’s infidelity to the rule of law.

On the lawfulness of his proposed war, the president has painted himself into a corner. Last year, he quite properly recognized that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), a statute enacted by Congress in 2001 to permit President George W. Bush to use the military to track down, capture, degrade, or kill all persons or organizations that planned the attacks of 9/11, cannot apply to organizations that did not exist at the time of 9/11, of which ISIS is one.

That leaves the president with two remaining alternatives. One is the War Powers Resolution (WPR), a statute enacted by Congress in 1973 to limit presidentially ordered military invasions absent congressional assent to 180 days or fewer. But the WPR is unconstitutional, as it consists of Congress giving away to the president express authority to declare war, which the Constitution delegates to Congress. The Supreme Court has prohibited such giveaways of core powers and responsibilities from one branch of the federal government to another.

Even if Obama decides to rely on the WPR, and expects that no federal judge will interfere with that decision, his military advisers have told him he cannot achieve his objective in 180 days. They also have told him he cannot achieve his objective by the use of air power alone.

The remaining mechanism for starting a war is to follow the Constitution by seeking a congressional declaration of war. But Obama has not yet asked for such a declaration. Why not? No doubt, he has two fears. One is that Congress will impose restrictions on the location and duration of hostilities, unlike the AUMF, which is open-ended. The other is that he will disaffect his loyal political base by doing what he promised he would never do: bring the country into another offensive war in the Middle East.

In 2008 and in 2012, Obama ran as a candidate and an incumbent determined to end American military involvement in the Middle East, not increase it. Hence his promise, by now made many times, that he will not introduce ground troops into this war. Apparently, just as when he bombed Libya into chaotic instability in 2011, he does not consider bombs an act of offensive warfare.

But he does consider the use of boots to be an act of war. When the president promises no ground troops, note the phrase he uses: “No boots on the ground.” This is a term of art that apparently has different meanings to different folks.

There are already more than 1,000 pairs of American military boots on the ground in this effort to destroy ISIS. Yet, because they are not yet directly engaged in the use of violence in pursuit of ISIS fighters (they are training others to do so or finding targets to destroy by air), or because they are Special Forces and thus out of uniform (but no doubt armed and violent and wearing boots), the president feels he has a clear conscience when he says there are no boots on the ground.

It was only a few days ago — September 11th, ironically — when Western Journalism shared the story of two young Austrian girls–fresh-faced, impressionable teenagers — who reportedly ran off to join in jihad as ISIS war fighters. Now comes word that one of those girls has already been killed on a Middle East battlefield.

As London’s Daily Mail reports:

One of two Austrian teenage ‘postergirls’ who flew to Syria in April to join Islamic State ranks is believed to have been killed.

Samra Kesinovic, 16, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, vanished from their Vienna homes earlier this year.

Soon afterwards they posted images of themselves branding Kalashnikov rifles, surrounded by armed men – photos which Austrian police feared were acting as militant recruitment posters for young girls.

Screen shot 2014-09-18 at 12.42.07 PM

As of this posting, it’s not known which of the two girls — both reportedly of Bosnian heritage — may have died.

Police now want to find out how they became radicalised, and whether anybody had helped them plan their trip to Syria which was apparently set to take place via Turkey….

It’s well known that ISIS recruiters and trainers welcome jihadists of all ages into their terror ranks. They even proudly post videos of youngsters firing weapons, as you can see by clicking on the video above.

Much has been made of the bid by separatists in Scotland to form their own country apart from the United Kingdom.

The impact on Great Britain would be substantial and would be the end of her status as a strong international player.

However, how would this succession impact the United States?

For decades, the U.K. has been a reliable partner to the U.S. in conflicts all over the globe.  The special relationship has withstood many governments on both sides of the pond, conservative and liberal.  The disrespect Barack Obama has shown Britain notwithstanding, the special relationship is still special, albeit strained.  No matter which way the vote goes today, the specter of Scottish independence will haunt Britain as Quebec haunts Canada.  If Scotland does succeed, the special relationship between the United States and the U.K. could very well be over.

First of all, the remaining parts of the United Kingdom will be weaker, primarily geographically.  Scotland makes up a huge chunk of the land mass of the U.K.  This is territory that houses the nuclear submarine fleet of Britain, and the base will have to be moved eventually. Where it will be located remains to be seen. This could seriously undermine the nuclear deterrent that Europe trusts to deter Russia.

Vladimir Putin has been brandishing the nuclear sword repeatedly over the past year.  Putin will be all smiles with a weaker U.K.  In addition, although Scotland is not a large percentage of the British population, there will be a smaller pool for the British military to source from. This could reduce the power Britain could project on the global stage in support of shared goals with the United States.  Military weakness invites war.  We have seen this over and over again throughout history.  Now that we have a real shooting war in Ukraine, the first in Europe since World War II, any reduction in Western deterrence is a problem.

Economically as well, the U.K. will be weaker without Scotland.  Although Scotland most certainly will take on a portion of the United Kingdom’s sovereign debt, a smaller tax base will make it harder to support the strong pound the world is used to.  In short, a smaller U.K. will be a weaker U.K.; and this will impact negatively the national security of the United States.  It seems foolish at such a dangerous time geopolitically for Scotland to be considering such a move.

Kris Paronto

Kris Paronto and Mark Geist, two security guards who were in Benghazi on the night of the attacks back in 2012, are challenging what Democrat reps are saying about there not being a stand down order issued that night.

“The words stand down were given,” Paronto said.

Sean Hannity asked if those asking for help truly said, “if you don’t get here, people are going to die.”

Paronto and Geist affirmed that they were and that it is what drove them to disobey orders and begin their rescue mission.

The clip ends with Hannity saying he is going to be calling Democratic reps Adam Smith (D-Wa.) and Adam Schiff (D-Ca.), and challenging them to come onto his show and see if they “have the guts” to call the security guards liars to their faces.

Hannity doubts they will.

The man who passed on attending the funeral of Margaret Thatcher…who returned the bust of Winston Churchill…who recently “tossed aside a long-standing ‘special relationship’ between the U.S. and Great Britain” — yes, than man, Barack Obama, now cozies up to the United Kingdom, calling her “an extraordinary partner for America.”

As the citizens of Scotland head to the polls to make an extraordinary decision — whether to secede from Great Britain and form an independent nation — the President of the United States has tweeted his vote…and the 25-word message from “-bo” has gone viral.

Obama’s taking to twitter to let the world know his feelings is, of course, nothing new. And in light of his administration’s urgent effort to gather allies for the fight against the Islamic State, to try to make nice with Britain’s prime minister, David Cameron, should come as no surprise.

As for Scotland’s future, the New York Times reports:

A full result is expected by breakfast time on Friday, when Scots will learn whether their land is to embark on a era of restored sovereignty that, only a matter of years ago, seemed unlikely. The English — who form the overwhelming majority of the 60-million-plus population of the United Kingdom — have no vote in the referendum, whose result could send political and economic shock waves across the nation, which also includes Wales and Northern Ireland.

Curiously, as the website mashable.com notes:

Obama’s tweet didn’t deter Scottish supporters, who chanted his famous 2008 slogan “Yes we can!” at a pro-independence rally Wednesday.

Trey Gowdy

With no limits on what it could examine or when it should finish, the special House panel set up to conduct a thorough investigation of the deadly attack at Benghazi kicked off its public hearings Wednesday morning in Washington.

The atmosphere was subdued, almost laid back as the head of the Select Committee, South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy — often characterized as a “bulldog” determined to sink his prosecutorial teeth into the scandal — opened the proceedings with a low-key, sober, solemn statement.

You can watch a portion of Gowdy’s statesman-like remarks by clicking on the video above.

After months of closed-door sessions, the House panel kicks off its public presentations only hours after a potentially significant new development — a State Department insider’s allegation that aides to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hid from scrutiny documents potentially embarrassing to Ms. Clinton.

media bias

Throughout the lowest point of George W. Bush’s presidency, the mainstream media were devoted to exploiting the president’s sinking popularity. As the Fox Business Network pointed out, however, the same is demonstrably untrue during a similar slump in Barack Obama’s approval rate.

During the first nine months of 2006, a telling graphic shows the major network’s devoted 124 segments to Bush’s sagging approval during evening news coverage. Over the same period this year, and with very similar approval numbers to report, the same networks only mentioned Obama’s results nine times.

The eye-opening comparison sparked significant outrage among Twitter users fed up with the blatant bias inherent across much of the media landscape.

Some suggested that a look into coverage of other issues might show a similar partisan slant toward the Democrat president.

In the end, many saw such blatantly one-sided reporting as yet another nail in the coffin of objective journalism.

South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy is garnering national buzz for his quick wit, stellar intellect, and knowledge of law–but more importantly his willingness and unwavering ability to question someone.

He has, in the last couple of months, tore into IRS Commissioner Koskinen for his role in the IRS scandal, as well as anyone from the Benghazi scandal.

“There are still facts to learn about Benghazi and information that needs to be explained in greater detail to the American people,” he said earlier this month. “And this committee will do just that.”

The House Benghazi Select Committee will conduct its first hearing Wednesday on the attack of the U.S. facility in Libya that left 4 men dead.

Listed below are five of Gowdy’s intense rants that will illustrate exactly why he was chosen to head this up:

1. Obama: “We make law!”

2. IRS: “My advice is to be very careful who you take your advice from.

3. IRS: “You are not recognized!

4. Benghazi: “How could you look at everything!”

5. IRS: “You can shake your head all you want to, Commissioner.

Something’s fouling Colorado’s crisp air — and I’m not talking about the pot smoke.

In my adopted home state, the toxic fumes of Islamic jihad have penetrated the most unlikely hamlets and hinterlands. Obama administration officials are vehemently denying plots by ISIS operatives to cross our borders. But the lesson here is clear: Thanks to laptop recruitment, reckless visa policies and homegrown treachery, the U.S.-based jihad export-import business is and has been thriving.

Last week, 19-year-old Shannon Conley of Arvada (a Denver suburb once known as the “Celery Capital of the World”) pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Conley, a militant Muslim convert, plotted to aid al-Qaida and its affiliates. According to the federal criminal complaint filed in April, she planned to use her military training with the U.S. Army Explorers “to go overseas to wage jihad” and “to train Islamic jihadi fighters in U.S. military tactics.” A certified nurse’s aide, she also told investigators she would use her medical training to aid jihadi fighters.

Over the Internet, Conley met an ISIS-affiliated Tunisian Muslim based in Syria. She was headed there on April 8 when the feds arrested her at Denver International Airport. Her luggage contained jihad propaganda, materials on administering first aid on the battlefield, and CDs and DVDs bearing the name of Anwar al-Awlaki, the jihadi counselor to the 9/11 hijackers and Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan.
Conley’s not the first Colorado woman to go jihad. In January, Muslim convert Jamie Paulin-Rodriguez was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for providing material support to terrorists. The 31-year-old nurse practitioner left her home in Leadville, a tiny old silver-mining town perched at 10,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains, to marry an Algerian terror plotter in Ireland. The man, Ali Damache, was a recruiter for North Africa’s al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb. He brainwashed Rodriguez’s then 6-year-old son (fathered by an illegal alien from Mexico) to build pipe bombs, shoot guns and declare war on Christians and “kafirs” (pejorative for non-Muslims).

Like Conley, “Jihad Jamie” was radicalized in online forums and chatrooms. That’s how she met fellow “Jihad Jane” collaborator Colleen LaRose, who enlisted her in a conspiracy to murder Swedish cartoonist and outspoken critic of Islam, Lars Vilks.

LaRose also introduced Rodriguez to another Colorado Muslim avenger, New York City subway bomb plotter Najibullah Zazi.

Zazi, a 24-year-old Denver airport shuttle driver who lived in suburban Aurora, was a green-card holder from Afghanistan. He flew back to his native land to join the Taliban in 2008, but was snatched up by al-Qaida leaders to lead suicide bomb operations back in the U.S. He acquired explosives in Denver, which he drove to New York City as part of the plot to bomb Manhattan subway lines in September 2009. Zazi’s scheme was part of a larger conspiracy involving al-Qaida pilot Adnan Shukrijumah. The two huddled with top jihad operatives in Pakistan. As I noted earlier this month, Shukrijumah is still on the loose with a $5 million FBI bounty on his head.

Radar guns can now detect more than just speeding.

A Virginia-based company, ComSonics, is developing a device that picks up on the radio frequencies being used by cellphones.

Text messages send a different frequency than other cellphone activity, meaning that it would be easy for the new gun to pick up on them.

This technology possesses a similarity with technology that allows cable technicians to determine if there are leaks. In fact, the company already produces a device that does just that.

Due to the dangerous distraction posed by texting while in the car, 44 states ban the practice.

In fact, according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving without texting.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that driver distraction was the cause of 18 percent of fatal crashes.

How do you feel about the new technology?

As a special congressional committee, led by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, conducts its first public hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack of 2012, a group dedicated to preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming the 45th president is attempting to capitalize on the renewed focus. Though the Stop Hillary Pac was established more than a year ago, a new commercial airing this week will be its first active campaign.

The committee’s honorary chairman, Colorado state Sen. Ted Harvey, concisely stated his motivation.

“My number one goal,” he said, “is to make sure that Hillary Clinton is not the next president of the United States.”

A Washington Post report indicates the anti-Clinton organization spent more than one hundred thousand dollars to air the ad online and in television spots targeted toward audiences in influential primary states including Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Focusing on the ongoing Benghazi investigation, the 30-second ad emphasizes the perception that then-Secretary of State Clinton obstructed the initial inquiry into America’s response to the attack that left four Americans dead.

A call to action is also included in the spot, encouraging likeminded voters to visit an affiliated website to sign a ‘citizen’s subpoena.’

“Two years ago, four Americans were murdered in Benghazi,” the document states, “Yet, instead of providing Americans with the truth about what happened that night, you have continued to obstruct, throw up smokescreens, and distract from the truth.”

The intent of this effort, the subpoena explains, is to compel Clinton to appear before the special committee “and under-oath testify to [her] exact actions and knowledge of these events.”

Aided by graphic images of the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, the ad calls on Clinton to “break the silence” regarding what actually happened that fateful day and how the Obama administration responded.

“Demand Hillary Clinton answer for the American lives lost in Benghazi,” the narrator concludes.

American Bridge and Correct the Record, a super PAC established to defend Clinton, reacted to this week’s hearings as well. The organization set up a website suggesting Republicans are wasting time and money pursuing facts related to the Benghazi attack.

Western Journalism will provide coverage of the hearings as it progresses.

Read More and Comment: Stunning: Obama Just Threw His Top Military Commander Under The Bus In A Very Public Way]]>
120911-D-TT977-180

If there was a sense of confusion yesterday regarding the Obama administration’s plan to combat the spread of the terror group ISIS, that confusion — which some would characterize as bordering on bewilderment — has been multiplied with the latest statement from the president.

After a briefing with top military leaders at U.S. Central Command in Florida, Obama doubled down on his pledge of no new American ground troops in Iraq. None. Period.

Essentially, Barack Obama — in advance of any actual experience on this Iraqi battlefield — is telling his top war fighters what they will and/or will not do. He is also signaling to the enemy the extent to which America is willing to engage ISIS fighters who have proven they’re willing to do whatever it takes.

USA Today says the president forcefully repeated his “no boots on the ground” pledge, which came into serious question yesterday when the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs said he might recommend the insertion of ground forces.

Gen. Martin Dempsey…said in congressional testimony Tuesday: “To be clear, if we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I will recommend that to the president.”

In promising no new combat troops in the struggle against ISIS in Iraq, Obama has said that the great majority of the ground fighting must be handled by the Iraqi army, with air support and combat advice from the United States. That underlined another apparent disconnect between the Commander-in-Chief and his top military officer, Gen. Dempsey.

As Fox News reported following Dempsey’s congressional testimony on Tuesday:

The U.S. military’s top officer said Wednesday that almost half of Iraq’s army is incapable of working against the Islamic State militant group, while the other half needs to be rebuilt with the help of U.S. advisers and military equipment.

Obama’s former Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, has joined the chorus of military experts and lawmakers questioning whether ISIS can be defeated without the use of American combat troops on the battlefield.

“They’re not gonna be able to be successful against ISIS strictly from the air, or strictly depending on the Iraqi forces, or the Peshmerga, or the Sunni tribes acting on their own,” Gates told CBS This Morning. “So there will be boots on the ground if there’s to be any hope of success in the strategy.”

Obama’s public reiteration of his “no boots on the ground” stand is seen by some as an effort to silence dissent within his administration and to clean up the discord and confusion left in the wake of apparently disparate positions taken by the White House and the Pentagon.

ISIS in Israel

At least 14 soldiers of the Islamic State were killed near Baghdad when a warhead that they had been filling with chlorine gas exploded on them.

Iraqi security officers said the attack took place in the city of al-Dhuluiya, which is about 90 km north of Baghdad.

The town was also the spot where four soldiers of the Iraqi security forces were killed by inhaling chlorine gas.

Chlorine gas has been used in Syria, but this was the first time it has been used in Iraq.

The use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad’s regime supposedly ended by agreement, but there has been continued evidence of the use of the substance in the country after the agreement.

Chlorine is a choking agent, first used in World War I as a weapon that in high concentrations can cause swelling of the lungs, respiratory failure, and death.

The use of chemical weapons in Iraq marks a dark turn in the conflict and another sign that the Islamic State is willing to use whatever means necessary to expand the caliphate.
