Will Obama Betray Armenian Christians on Easter Sunday?

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

I never thought I would write these words but — God bless Kim Kardashian. On her website, nestled beneath announcements of Belle Noel’s spring collection and “Jenny McCarthy’s fearless ShoeDazzle Shoe!” is a blog entry entitled, “Time to Recognize the Armenian Genocide.” In it, the reality show star reminds the world of one of the twentieth century’s earliest, and most ignored, massacres.

Kardashian, who is Armenian, reveals, “Every year, I honor the memory of the martyrs who were killed during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Even though so many countries around the world recognize the Genocide, the government of Turkey still denies it.” And Ankara is not alone. Kardashian took the opportunity to “urge the United States government to recognize the Armenian Genocide.” Kardashian adds, “There’s going to be a National Day of Prayer in churches across America to celebrate Easter and commemorate the Genocide.”

She is far from alone in asking the U.S. government to recognize historical reality. California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer said earlier this week the refusal to call the Muslim slaughter of 1.5 million Armenian Christians a genocide “is not only an affront to the memory of the victims and to their descendants, but it does a disservice to the United States as it seeks to stand up to those who are perpetrating violence today.”

Although Obama campaigned on a promise to acknowledge the full depth of the atrocities, he broke the promise last year. And he appears to be ready to do it again on Easter Sunday.

Did Obama and Holder Scuttle Terror Finance Prosecutions?

Did Obama and Holder Scuttle Terror Finance Prosecutions?

High-level source concedes DOJ let off CAIR co-founders and others for political reasons.

During the House Homeland Security hearing last month on the topic of radicalization in the American Muslim community, one exchange between L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca and Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN) concerned the relationship between the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Hamas terrorist front the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Sheriff Baca told the congressman:

We don’t play around with criminals in my world. If CAIR is an organization that is a quote “criminal organization,” prosecute them. Hold them accountable and bring them to trial.

But according to a high-ranking source within the Department of Justice, who spoke exclusively to Pajamas Media on the condition of anonymity, Sheriff Baca, a long-time supporter of CAIR, was probably already in on the joke.

The joke is that a number of leaders of Islamic organizations (all of whom publicly opposed the King hearings on Muslim radicalization) were about to be indicted on terror finance support charges by the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas, which had been investigating the case for most of the past decade.

But those indictments were scuttled last year at the direction of top-level political appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — and possibly even the White House….

Obama Sends Hillary to Intl. Muslim Conference to Build Goodwill

Judicial Watch

In the Obama administration’s continuing effort to befriend Muslims, the United States will for the first time host an international Islamic forum held annually in the Middle East and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will headline the three-day event.

Created to address issues critical to Arabs and Muslims, the U.S.-Islamic World Forum will come to Washington, D.C., this week after eight years in Qatar. Clinton will be America’s friendly host for the duration of the event, which begins Tuesday, and will deliver the keynote address at a gala dinner on the first day.

Last year Clinton was the first senior member of a U.S. administration to participate in the U.S.-Islamic World Forum, which was held in February in Doha. At the event she announced President Obama’s “new era of diplomatic engagement” with nations that have been “hostile to the United States” and promised to close the military prison at Guantanamo because it had “become a symbol of the wrong way to make America more secure.”

President Obama also participated via a video message that called for a “new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.” The commander-in-chief outlined a “government-wide approach” to improve the daily lives of Muslims and a commitment from senior administration officials—such as Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano—to engage Muslim communities in the U.S.

DHS Launches Community Outreach to Muslims, (Illegal) Immigrants

Creeping Sharia Blog

A pilot pandering program, just like at the FBI and CIA (see related links below). via Homeland Security launches community outreach.

CHICAGO | The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is “taking it to the streets.” At least that’s the motto behind a new pilot program aimed at combating the negative image that some community groups have about the department.

The program is being launched next week in Chicago to dispel stereotypes, mistrust and misinformation about the department and its agencies, including U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The idea is to bring together DHS officials with immigrants, Muslims and other groups to encourage them to reach out with any questions or concerns.

“All they see is that we’re standing at the borders, searching luggage,” said Robyn Dessaure, a Homeland Security field director, about Customs and Border Protection. “It’s time for us to get back on the ground.”

Officials hope the Chicago program would become a template for similar outreach nationwide.

Meeting with community groups to help build trust and get information is nothing new — the FBI has held meetings at mosques for years — but the Chicago program attempts to bring together different branches that typically don’t work together.

And all the FBI got in return was a lawsuit by Muslims and demands to make public FBI operating procedures. Oh and Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslim groups boycotted working with the FBI.

Save America; Get Outraged

Don Feder, GrassTopsUSA.com

Where’s the outrage?

Given what Barack Obama is doing to the Constitution, the economy and our future, the American people should be up in arms (metaphorically speaking, civility-hysterics take note). Citizens should be marching on Washington with pitchforks and flaming brands in hand (also a metaphor). Every city should see demonstrations to make the most raucous Tea Party rally look like Sunday night in Pierre, South Dakota.

Instead, it’s a mental fog as usual. Hey, the unemployment rate is now (barely) below 9 percent! Wasn’t that a cold winter? Gee, I wonder what zany, drug-induced thing Charlie Sheen will do next?

So, while America burns, we fiddle with our iPhones and talk about the upcoming HBO series about vampire bootleggers and Borgias duking it out in Camelot.

Other than Tea Party activists, the public seems supremely unperturbed by Obama’s relentless assault on America. The president’s March 21-27 approval rating was 45 percent. At the same point in their first terms, Clinton’s approval rating was only three points higher – Reagan’s three points lower. Both were re-elected, you may recall.

It’s true that since Obama occupied the White House, his party’s stock has taken a nose-dive – a net loss of 9 governorships, 7 Senate seats, and 60 House seats. But there’s no guarantee that trend will continue.

The leader of the party that whines incessantly about the influence of money in politics has announced he’ll spend $1 billion to win re-election….
