Video: SEAL Team 6 Was Set Up

On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter—Extortion 17, carrying thirty-eight men, including seventeen of the elite SEAL Team 6—was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. It was the worst loss of life in a single day suffered since the Afghanistan war began.

Per a 1300-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building.

According to family members of those murdered, it was no lucky shot. It was an inside job that may have included elements within our own government up to the highest levels, including the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.

Why did they have to disappear?

These were the same Navy SEALS who took part in the Osama Bin Laden raid that, despite the passage of almost two years, is still shrouded in mystery. Over a year ago, the government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, sued the Obama administration for the release of documents, photos, and videos relating to the raid and alleged burial at sea of Bin Laden; but thus far, the Obama administration has refused to comply. Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, recently said that the story of the Bin Laden raid was “one big lie.”

American POW Languishes in Afghanistan – Bureaucrats do Nothing

Afgan Prison

Just what is holding up the release from captivity of the only American POW, Sgt. Bowe Robert Bergdahl, 27, of Ketchum, Idaho?  Is this 27 year old American soldier now a ping pong ball in the Afghanistan-US peace talks?  Or is he being held as a bargaining chip between our State Department and Senate because of President Obama’s aim to close Guantanamo Prison in Cuba?    His efforts are being thwarted by a Congress which doesn’t want it closed?

And, if as the Taliban supposedly demands, America must release five prisoners being held in Gitmo before Sgt. Bergdahl can be freed, how come “two Algerians held at Guantanamo Bay prison for a decade have been returned to Algiers?”  And what about this in the same AP report: “There are still nearly 90 prisoners who have been cleared for release or transfer from the prison out of the total population of 164.”  Just what is going on here, and why is an active US soldier being left to languish somewhere around the Afghanistan–Pakistan tribal border area while State Department employee Jen Psaki smiles?  How come this 34 year old woman, who can be contacted at, can remain as the Benghazi Survivors spokeswoman, but can’t tell Congress directly what went on with that sorry saga?

Reporter Paul Shinkman in two reports during June of this year quotes Taliban member Shaheen Suhali, saying “the US first has to release detainees (five) from Guantanamo Bay to build confidence,” before anything can go forward on the release of Sgt. Berkdahl.  One video allegedly quotes him as saying, “Release me, please.  I’m begging you. Bring me home.” But trying to get this picture to load is difficult.  The same reporter says Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in September reiterated that everyone is doing everything they can.  Sure, right you are.  Well, then why isn’t something happening?

We used to have a promise in the US Military that no soldier would be left behind.  Well, here’s one that is left behind in the Obama administration’s war of words, and Jen Psaki appears to have an awful lot of control over something that is well above her pay grade.  Where are the statements from our generals, our Pentagon leaders, anybody, anywhere?

What is being done to bring this suffering American soldier home to his family and friends in Ketchum, Idaho?  His parents are afraid to speak out “so as not to jeopardize their son.”  But are the people in control really doing anything?  I’m sorry, but this mumbo jumbo rhetoric of the other guy working on it is an insult to Sgt. Berkdahl, to other soldiers putting their life on the line for this country, to his parents, to the legacy of MIA’s in other wars that just somehow fell through the cracks of an American system that seems able to cherry pick what prisoners they release.

How would these ineffectual politicians and bureaucrats feel if they were imprisoned somewhere in the wasteland of Afghanistan?  Have leaders on both sides simply lost their own humanity?  Bring Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl home now!  Don’t let him be just another wrist bracelet on an unknown arm who prays for him, to no avail.

Obama Democrat in NYC Gets Muslim Backing

While the public’s attention has been focused on the battles between the White House and Congress, the race for mayor has been unfolding in New York City, with national implications. In the city of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Obama-backed “progressive” Democratic front-runner is promising to close down New York Police Department surveillance of radical Muslims and replace Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Bill De Blasio has also promised to incorporate two Muslim holidays in the New York City public school system.

His embrace of Islam as an emerging political force was highlighted in an extraordinary New York Times article about his controversial past and support for communist regimes in Nicaragua and Cuba.

The Times had previously been known for its unrelenting attacks on the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and Police Commissioner Kelly.

At stake in the mayoral contest is not just whether de Blasio’s Obama-style tax-and-spending policies could bankrupt the city, but whether another major terrorist attack will be allowed to occur because of left-wing pressure to discontinue aggressive police tactics and surveillance activities. De Blasio’s opponent on November 5 is moderate Republican Joe Lhota.

The New York City Police Department reports, “There have been 16 known terrorist plots against New York City since September 11, 2001.”

On Wednesday, a group of militant Muslims rallied for Bill de Blasio in Brooklyn, New York. Local news reports identified the rally organizer and main speaker, Linda Sarsour, simply as the head of the Muslim Democratic Club. However, her family’s connections to the terrorist group Hamas have been mentioned in numerous press reports.

The New York Times reported, for example, that “Members of her family had been arrested on accusations of supporting Hamas, the Islamist group that governs the Gaza Strip.”

The Muslim Democratic Club of New York had previously endorsed de Blasio for mayor, with Sarsour saying, “We are fully committed to push the Muslim vote out for Bill this November and look forward to working with him during his tenure to advance all communities in our city, including American Muslims.”

“New York is the jihadis’ prime target,” writes Pamela Geller, the founder, editor, and publisher of Atlas “This surveillance is in large part what has prevented another major jihad attack in the City since 9/11. So of course stealth jihadis like Linda Sarsour want this surveillance ended, and the leftist de Blasio is anxious to accommodate them.”

Sarsour denied the charges of personal family connections to Hamas, telling AIM, “It’s like saying all people with the last name Smith are related!? I have absolutely ZERO ties to Hamas and have condemned them numerous times.”

Sarsour insisted that the amount of critical attention focused on her activities is the result of “Islamophobia” and pointed to a report on the “Islamophobia industry” published by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front. She also cited a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center critical of Geller.

However, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a discredited organization that throws around wild charges against conservatives, accusing them of spewing “hate” and being conspiracy-minded “patriots.” This columnist has been one of their targets.

The Legal Project, an activity of the Middle East Forum, has noted that the Southern Poverty Law Center seeks to “silence those who seek to educate the public on the Islamist threat.”

The SPLC was itself linked to a terrorist attack on the conservative Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C. The SPLC had provoked the attack by a gay-rights activist by labeling the FRC a hate group.

Geller has clearly been targeted because she is a major figure in the movement to expose the threat posed by radical Islam. Her honors and awards include:

  • The Annie Taylor Award for courage, from the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
  • The Patriot of the Year Award, from the Queens Republican Club (the oldest Republican organization in the country).
  • The Queen Esther Award for Jewish Heroism, from the Creative Zionist Coalition.
  • The American flag that flew over Helmand Province, Afghanistan on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, presented to her by members of the U.S. Marine Corps.
  • The “NCFRW Freedom Award,” presented by the Nassau County Federation of Republican Women.

While Sarsour’s alleged Hamas connections continue to generate comment and controversy, her statements critical of aggressive police tactics against potential terrorists are not in dispute.

A detailed 9-page report from the Investigative Project on Terrorism quotes a number of anti-police comments from Sarsour. She is even quoted as saying that terrorist convictions in such cases as al-Qaeda operatives Syed Hashmi and Aafia Siddiqui were somehow improper and unwarranted.

Referring to the NYPD, she said, “They are sending in informants, people who look like us, who speak like us to try to rake out what they say are potential terrorists, which we don’t have in our communities.”

Kelly’s proven record of stopping terrorist attacks includes his creation in 2002 of a Counterterrorism Bureau in the NYPD. It was the first unit of its kind in the nation.

It is not clear if de Blasio, as mayor, would dismantle the bureau.

Another issue is continued NYPD involvement in the Joint Terrorist Task Force (JTTF) led by the FBI.

Last May, the New Jersey State Police and JTTF in Newark, New Jersey named  Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, a Most Wanted Terrorist by the FBI. She is a convicted cop-killer who fled to Cuba with the help of the Weather Underground and has been living under Castro’s protection since at least 1984.

Cuba is where de Blasio and his wife reportedly spent their “honeymoon,” apparently in 1994, on a trip even described by the press as illegal. His wife is a former lesbian who lived in a Marxist “collective.”

De Blasio has refused to talk about the trip in any detail, and won’t even discuss his aliases and name changes. The New York Daily News reports he was born Warren Wilhelm Jr., changed his name to Warren de Blasio, and then to Bill de Blasio.

In another controversy, De Blasio said that he could not celebrate the “historical figure” of Christopher Columbus on Columbus Day, as “there are some troubling things in his history.”

“Funny,” Geller commented. “The same can be said of de Blasio.”

We are fighting so men can beat their wives?

US Navy SC

Ours is a military family.  Grandpa served in the Navy during WWII.  Our son serves in the Marine Corps. Those who volunteer to serve cannot speak out for themselves, so civilians must step up and do their duty in that regard.

It is safe to say that most military personnel and their families feel a deep, deep alienation from this president.  That is bizarre.  Isn’t the commander in chief supposed to support and respect the troops?  Isn’t it optimal for line troops to respect their commander?  Our sons and daughters are being killed and maimed fighting wars the commander either denies or opposes.  Our sons and daughters are hamstrung by this president’s rules of engagement.  These rules make sitting ducks of our sons and daughters.  The president is responsible for this, and many crimes, along with his stumbling, mumbling secretary of defense.

Funding Al Qaeda in Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is bad enough, but allowing Jihadist sympathizers to serve in the administration as well? Funding and employing the enemy is prudent military and foreign policy? No, it’s treason.

Few civilians stop to think about what it is like for active duty individuals in a combat zone, serving under a president who refuses to acknowledge the war they fight (yet frequently speaks and acts in ways supportive of the enemy.)

As if to destroy morale on purpose, this president acts to reduce military compensation and benefits. He works to destroy the chaplaincy and force on them the homosexual agenda, already a source of internal conflict damaging combat readiness.

Does it get worse?  Well, yes, of course it does. Veterans’ benefits have been cut.  Veterans have been prevented from visiting war memorials in the capitol.  The president’s security forces have identified veterans as potential terrorists. And it gets worse.

Now death benefits have been denied in a cynical and cruel political game during the government slim down, benefits denied to grieving families whose sons and daughters gave the ultimate sacrifice. This president and his secretary of state denigrate those sacrifices, showing disrespect for the very people dying to protect us. Despicable.

Worse?  Yes.  This government is prosecuting our own for war crimes. Recently, 1st Lt. Clint Lorance was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.  His crime? Violating the rules of engagement in an effort to protect his troops in Afghanistan.

In light of numerous and ongoing reports of Afghan regulars turning fire on our own, this conviction is especially heinous.  Obviously, there are more ways to execute inside attacks, as the president demonstrates.

Terrorists captured on the battlefield get halal food, prayer mats, and Korans delivered by gloved hands.  Our soldiers get cold MREs, worn-out equipment, and a slap in the face.

Now we see expanding efforts by Obama and associates to fund Sharia, advancing Jihad within the U.S.

The president and his operatives work hard urging us to accommodate Sharia, using our resources to further the cause of allowing men to beat their wives.   What will Obama do when Sharia generals want to hang homosexuals in the military, or when Muslim soldiers defend honor killings?

It will get worse, much worse, unless we prosecute this criminal.

Sermon delivered 7.7.13 in Washington

O’Blunder Exemplified


Obama Prophet SC OBlunder exemplified

Barack O’Blunder never learns. If adaptation is the best indicator of intelligence, this character is dumber than dirt.

For example: just recently, he declared war on Syria and within hours retreated without firing a shot, surrendering without fighting a fight. Then he allowed the Russians to completely humiliate him on the world stage, sending messages to all our enemies and allies—-”The U.S. is a big, cowardly, ignorant pushover.”  (Hagel and Kerry can take credit for this fiasco as well.)

Example: O’Blunder stands mute and impotent as terrorists slaughter people in Nairobi, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Mali. Most recently, 44 students were murdered in their sleep in Nigeria.  O’Blunder tells us the war on terror is over and that Al Qaeda and related groups are on the run.  The watch word at the White House appears to be: never allow evidence to interfere with the narrative; Republicans opposed to ObamaCare are terrorists; the actual terrorists are either freedom fighters, victims of discrimination, or individuals involved in workplace violence.

Example: by behaving like a spoiled child, refusing to negotiate, and insisting on his own way, O’Blunder causes a government shutdown. Then he stands back and cries and whines, blaming others.  He never takes responsibility for anything, and always blames others.  Pathological.   No federal budget has passed during his entire term.  There’s leadership for you.

Example: he pushed the idea of a sequester in the never-ending budget battle he started, allowed it to happen because he doesn’t have a clue how to work with Congress, and then tried blaming Republicans for the fallout (and even told us the sky was falling because of the sequester.)  The sky is still up there.

Example: years ago, O’Blunder as a senator said that raising the debt limit was a sign of incompetence, as well as evidence of Bush being unpatriotic.  Today, O’Blunder insists we raise the debt ceiling without limit, this coming from a president responsible for adding more debt than all presidents combined.  Recently, he said, incredibly:  “Raising the debt ceiling does not increase our debt.” Complete hypocrite.

Example: ObamaCare.  At this point, everyone except O’Blunder’s inner circle hates it. Holding a gun to everyone’s head, he insists we comply with the multiplication of ‘mandates.’  A mandate, by the way, is the command of a king.  O’Blunder’s attempt to take over the entire U.S. economy is blowing up in his face; but, he refuses to learn, adjust course, adapt, or even talk about alternatives.  His attitude belies a deepening delusional orientation that borders on psychotic.

Example:  Let’s place a call to the Terrorists in Tehran a day before we meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu!  Don’t you love diplomacy articulated by professionals with a firm grasp on international realities?  Iran, North Korea, Russia, Syria, and terrorists get the upper hand, develop nukes, and threaten the entire world.  In the face of all this, all that O’Blunder can muster is a stupid phone call that insults our ally Israel and embarrasses everyone at home.  What a complete disgrace.

Example:  Benghazi.

Example: SEALs murdered in Afghanistan two years ago, still no answers, no investigation.

Example:  Associated Press and Fox News scandals.

Example: IRS scandal.

Example: Fast & Furious criminality.

Example: Funding Al Qaeda in Syria.  Funding the Muslim Brotherhood.  Both acts of treason.

Example: sponsoring subversion in Egypt, causing chaos, death, and mayhem.

Example: illegal war in Libya.

Example: killing American citizens with drones, including innocent teenage boys.

Example: NSA scandal, spying on citizens.

Example: illegal executive orders to skirt the will of Congress and the People.

Example: recess appointments that violate the Constitution.


The only achievements so far by O’Blunder?

Nixon is no longer the most hated president.

Carter is no longer considered the worst president in history.
