Obama Assisting al-Qaeda In Saudi Arabia’s War Against Shia Islam

President Barack Obama still continues to assist Islamic Sunni fighters including al-Qaeda, and the Republicans in Congress still support him. When does this stupidity end?

On Sunday, June 7, 2015, under the direction of President Obama, air strikes were conducted by Air Force and Navy attack aircraft in support of al-Qaeda.

U.S.-led coalition airplanes carried out four airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIL) in the town of Suran in the Aleppo province during a battle between the Islamic State and the Islamist coalition led by Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra.

The Islamic State had seized control of Suran the prior week and has since been fighting an alliance of Islamist rebels, including Al Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front and the Ahrar al-Sham movement in the surrounding area.

The previous month, Obama ordered air strikes against both Al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham. The last Obama-ordered strike against the al-Qaeda affiliate was on May 20th, near Aleppo
province in Syria, in which 15 Al-Nusra fighters were killed.

In May, our tax dollars were used to bomb al-Nusra; and in June, our tax dollars were used to bomb the Islamic State and help al-Nusra take a town. All of the fighters involved are Sunni.

Summing up in a paragraph: Three to four years ago, the United States helped to arm the al-Qaeda offshoot which became the Islamic State (ISIL) with the idea that it was more “moderate” than Jabhat al-Nusra–which is part of al-Qaeda. Then the United States armed Sunni fighters such as the Hazzm Movement, associated with the Free Syrian Army, to fight al-Nusra and the Islamic State. But the Hazzm Brigade joined with al-Nusra in January 2015. Obama then ordered the bombing of al-Nusra along with the Hazzm Brigade, which we had armed and trained. Then this month, we bombed the ISIL during a battle to help al-Nusra and other al-Qaeda affiliated groups, including the Hazzm Brigade.

If you understand the paragraph above, congratulations–because I wrote it, and I don’t even understand it. No one can understand the so-called strategy of President Barack Obama in Syria. What is even more mind-boggling is that Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham want President Obama to do more of whatever it is he is doing.

President Obama and a majority of Republican Senators want to somehow defeat the secular government of Syria dominated by Shiites and disband that nation’s army, just as was done in Iraq. At the same time, they want to defeat the Islamic State, as well as all al-Qaeda-associated groups including al-Nusra. After all these groups are defeated, including the ones we armed and trained in the past, the final goal is to establish a “democracy” in Syria. That really worked well for us in Iraq, Libya, and Yemen, didn’t it?

What is the result of the plans advocated by Barack Obama, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham? Their plans are destroying the churches founded by the Apostles including Peter, Paul, and John. Hundreds of thousands of Christians driven from their homes. Thousands of Christian men murdered. Thousands of Christian women and young girls forced into Islamic marriages. Married Christian women having been used as sex slaves passed from one Sunni fighter to the next. That, and millions of both Christian and Muslim refugees starving in UN camps.

Reality check: The Islamic fighters whom we are arming, training, and paying a monthly salary hate every aspect of America’s secular society.

Yet, President Obama and his pals in the Senate, such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham, have the absurd belief that Sunni Muslim fighters they arm and train are actually going to carry out the will of a gay-loving, dope-smoking, alcohol-consuming, over-eating, feminist-dominated secular nation such as the United States, which they view as the great Satan!

Democrats And GOP Rebels Save The Day On Obamatrade

After the Republican-controlled Senate foolishly passed the so-called “Obamatrade” bill, the House leadership (John Boehner, Steve Scalise, Paul Ryan, et al.) worked their tails off to pass the bill. But a majority of Democrats and liberty-minded Republicans (small in number) rallied in opposition to the bill and voted it down. HOORAY! In this case, it was mostly Democrats who saved the day!

I have been saying for years that people who think the Republican establishment is a friend to liberty are extremely naïve. On issues regarding so-called “free trade” (it’s NOT free trade; it’s globalism masquerading as free trade), the Warfare State, deficit spending, globalism, and civil liberties, the Republican Party in Washington, D.C., is FAR WORSE than the Democrat Party. In general terms, the Democrat Party is worse on issues that deal with gun control, welfare, abortion, gay marriage, and extremist environmentalist policies. As one should easily be able to see, there is no “lesser of two evils” between these two parties. Each party is a greater evil, depending on the issue. And taken as a whole, both parties in Washington, D.C., are selling our liberties down the river.

But this so-called Obamatrade bill is a nightmare. If you thought NAFTA and GATT are bad (and they are), Obamatrade (TPP) is far worse. Even worse is that congressional leaders will not allow the public to know what’s in the bill. Heck, most of the congressmen and senators who are voting on the bill don’t know what’s in it.

Matt Drudge paraphrases Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) angrily growling at reporters: “You will read it after we pass it.” What a pompous, arrogant blockhead Mr. Ryan is. Obviously, he has been in Congress too long.

One of the senators who did read the bill is Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama). And he is doing his best to warn the American people about just how horrific this bill really is. Breitbart.com recently interviewed one of Senator Sessions’ staff leaders regarding the impact of passing TPP.

“Stephen Miller, one of the staff leaders for Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), joined Breitbart News Sunday and was asked by Breitbart’s Executive Chairman and host, Stephen K. Bannon: ‘Isn’t the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) really a global governance deal, rather than a trade agreement? Is this a way to get the United States into a Pacific Union, as Senator Sessions lays out, that is very much like the European Union?’

“‘That’s exactly what is happening here,’ said Miller. ‘The Pacific Union that Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) refers to is the new transnational governance body that would be created by the Transpacific Partnership.’

“‘What this means,’ explained Miller, ‘is the house and the senate together would be authorizing the president to enter the United States into a new trans-national union.’

“The Union would consist at first of twelve countries, but additional countries could join and be added over time. ‘It could issue regulations about labor policy, about immigration policy, about environmental policies, and many other areas impacting American life, American jobs, and American wages.’

“Also appearing on the program, which airs on Sirius XM, Patriot Radio, channel 125, was Lord Christopher Monckton. Monckton, who served as a policy advisor for former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, argues that a Trans Pacific Union would bear a significant resemblance to the European Union, which Monckton insists is a serious detriment to democracy and leads to dictatorship.”

“As a result, Miller added, ‘the president can enter into an unlimited number of large sweeping international agreements. And, congress can’t filibuster them, at any point, for the next six full years.’

“Monckton retorted, ‘We’ve used this word before on this program–dictatorship. This is dictatorship.’”

TPP Enters USA Into A ‘New Trans-National Union’

The Obamatrade bill was proffered in two roll call votes. According to the rules established by House leaders, BOTH bills had to pass in order for “fast track” trade authority to be granted to President Obama. Boehner did this because he knew it would fail in one vote, as it was widely opposed by both Republican freedomists (a small group but enough to help defeat the bill) and liberal Democrats (liberals are not wrong on every issue). He was hoping he could muster enough support from both groups by separating the votes. His plan backfired. The first bill failed by a wide margin; so even though the second bill passed (barely), it was a moot point. The way to find the Republican rebels (America-first constitutionalists) is to look at the ones who voted against Obamatrade on BOTH votes. Here are those 37 brave Republican House members:

Justin Amash (MI); Dave Brat (VA); James Bridenstine (OK); Mo Brooks (AL); Ken Buck (CO); Michael Burgess (TX); Curt Clawson (FL); Doug Collins (GA); Chris Collins (NY); Paul Cook (CA); Jeff Duncan (SC); John J. Duncan (TN); Morgan Griffith (VA); Andy Harris (MD); Duncan Hunter (CA); Lynn Jenkins (KS); Walter Jones (NC); Jim Jordan (OH); David Joyce (OH); Raul Labrador (ID); Frank LoBiondo (NJ); Richard Nugent (FL); Gary Palmer (AL); Steve Pearce (NM); Scott Perry (PA); Bruce Poliquin (ME); Bill Posey (FL); Dana Rohrabacher (CA); Keith Rothfus (PA); Steve Russell (OK); Chris Smith (NJ); Daniel Webster (FL); Lynn Westmoreland (GA); Rob Wittman (VA); Ted Yoho (FL); Don Young (AK); Lee Zeldon (NY).

If you live in the district of one of these congressmen, you can be very proud of your representative.

And for those GOP House members who voted “Nay” on either vote, there is retribution from the Republican leadership. NationalJournal.com has this part of the story:

“House Republican leaders are cracking down on rebellious members after a near-disaster on a trade vote last week.

“Reps. Cynthia Lummis, Steve Pearce, and Trent Franks have been removed from the whip team after they sided with GOP rebels to vote against a rule governing debate on a trade bill, according to sources close to the team.”

“But House Majority Whip Steve Scalise had said earlier in the year that he would not tolerate members voting against rules and has already removed two other members [Jeff Duncan and Ron DeSantis] close to the conservative movement.”

See the report here:

Three Booted From GOP Whip Team As Leaders Crack Down

As for House Democrats, they held together in their opposition to TPP even when President Barack Obama personally went to Capitol Hill and lobbied them to support it. Nancy Pelosi (D-California) must be given credit on this issue, as she held fast in her opposition to TPP and encouraged Democrats to stand together in opposing it–which they did.

What is it about Democrat presidents who campaign against these so-called “free trade” deals when they are candidates and then become full-fledged supporters of the deals after being elected? Bill Clinton did the exact same thing. It just further demonstrates what I’ve been saying all along: at the highest levels of government, party affiliation, party platforms, and promises to party grassroots mean NOTHING. Powerbrokers are calling the shots; and the President (no matter the party) is too often but a pawn of these Machiavellians.

And if there is any issue that these international elites who are dominating Washington politics are doggedly determined to bring into being, it is the breakdown of national economic borders and the establishment of a global financial system.

Of course, one cannot have a global financial system without enacting a global political and military system to control and manage it. And, that, folks, is what all of these wars in the Middle East are about. It has NOTHING to do with the “war on terror.” It is all about establishing global government. The global elite are merely manipulating the West vs. Muslim façade to bring down those governments in the Middle East (Iran and Syria) that refuse to submit to the Federal Reserve’s international banking system and bring the oil-rich region of the Middle East completely under the Fed’s control.

Consider this: Saudi Arabia beheads far more people than ISIS. In fact, Saudi Arabia is one country that is indeed governed by strict Sharia Law. Yet, the United States considers the Saudis our dear friends and allies. And Christians seem totally oblivious to Saudi Arabia’s barbarism and intolerance. When is the last time you heard any pastor or Christian calling for war against Saudi Arabia?

Furthermore, independent news agencies are reporting that the United States is actually ASSISTING ISIS militarily.

Please take the time to read this report:

Anti-ISIS Coalition Forces Are The Target: US Warplanes Strike Iraqi Army Position, US Delivers Weapons To Terrorists

Folks, please turn off FOX News long enough to do some independent research. America is not at war with ISIS. America’s CIA created ISIS and continues to assist it. The U.S. government is using ISIS to attack its real target: the leaders of Iran and Syria who staunchly stand in the way of the U.S./Saudi Arabia/Israel machinations to centralize the banking systems of the Middle East. That is what the wars in the Middle East are truly about.

At this writing (Tuesday, June 16), GOP leaders and President Obama are collaborating on how to bring “fast track” trade authority back to the House floor for passage. But for now, it was House Democrats and that small number of Republican rebels who saved the day on Obamatrade.

P.S. Let me remind readers that we have just produced an hour-long DVD wherein Attorney Tim Baldwin lectures (complete with instructional slides) on the topic: “Police Contact: How To Respond.”

Tim explains your rights and the law regarding police contacts in a variety of circumstances, such as traffic stops, etc. He explains the rights and protections you have under the Constitution. He presents a constitutional, legal analysis of what you should and shouldn’t do when brought into contact with a police officer, sheriff’s deputy, or highway patrolman.

Tim is a former felony prosecutor and is now a criminal defense attorney. He has seen both sides of the criminal justice system and is imminently qualified to discuss this subject. He knows that for an attorney to best protect his or her clients, his clients need to know how to protect themselves before and during the investigative and arrest procedures.

Police officers are SERVANTS of the People and are as obligated to obey the Constitution as are each of us. Knowing these rights and protections will give you much CONFIDENCE when you are pulled over by a police officer.

Let me hasten to say that I am ALWAYS respectful to a police officer. And so should we always be. We must respect his position. But mostly, we must respect the law that he, the police officer, is sworn to uphold. But how can we respect the law if we don’t even know and understand the law? How can officers improve their law-enforcement practice unless citizens know when police are following the law? How is the legal system benefited if police can trample citizens’ constitutional rights with the consent of the people? Tim’s DVD will help tremendously in this regard.

In light of the climate that we all live in today, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that we become familiar with our constitutional rights and responsibilities. If enough of the American people would learn these constitutional principles, they could stem the growing tide of unconstitutional conduct by our public servants, including, and especially, by those in law enforcement.

Here is where you can order the DVD, “Police Contact: How To Respond,” by Attorney Tim Baldwin.

Here’s What Islam Teaches About Jews And Gays: Behead Them

It may surprise most Americans to learn that according to a 2014 FBI report on hate crimes in America, Jews are the most targeted victims of hate crimes in America. Not blacks, not Muslims, not gays–but Jews.

In fact, Americans might even be surprised to learn which college campuses are the most dangerous to be a Jewish student on—on American soil.

Under Islam, no Jews exist. Nor do gays, trans-Jenners, or lesbians. They’re dead.

Go to Saudi Arabia, the land of the Bush Dynasty’s longtime friends and allies—and you will find that no Jews are allowed to live or operate businesses there. The Shari’a ruled government, what former president G.W. Bush claimed was a “peaceful religion,” recently sentenced a blogger to receive 1,000 lashes for criticizing Islam.

Saudi Arabia has not only funded ISIS, which is committing widespread genocide against Christians–but it continues to publicly execute people for allegedly committing minor crimes, and even no crimes (54 people were killed in the first three months of 2015). In fact, it is nearly impossible for any non-Muslim to own or operate a business in Saudi Arabia.

No Jews exist in Iran, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, and many more Islamic-controlled countries. Nor do gays— because the Qur’an instructs it.

Jews, gays, and trans-anything-gender people have no “civil rights” under Islam. Like everyone else, they must either submit to Islam or die. But they are especially forbidden and targeted for death — because the Qur’an instructs it.

Muhammad declared that Jews are the “worse of Allah’s creation” and “cursed and transformed into apes and swine.” (Surah 2:6; 5:60; 7:166; 8:55-56; 98:6).

Little children are taught in Saudi Arabia that Jews are the source of evil and are pigs and apes. See for yourself:

Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) best articulates Islamic teachings on gays:

Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption… no person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education. There are many reasons why it is forbidden in Islam. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases… It is the most un-natural way of life. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life.

Keep in mind that former president Jimmy Carter lauds this man and claims ISNA was “key to peace” when he gave the keynote at ISNA’s annual conference last year.

Listen to learn more about Islamic teachings that endorse Jew hatred. Hitler mirrored Muhammad’s treatment of Jews. Jews were not the first or the last to be killed by Hitler; but as they were in Germany, Jews are the primary target for hate in 21st Century America.

CIA Just Released This Secret 9/11 Report That Reveals Major ‘Systemic Problems’

The CIA declassified and released a report Friday outlining multiple “systemic problems” within the agency before 9/11.

Some of the failures outlined in the nearly 500-page report, prepared by the CIA’s Inspector General (OIG) in 2005 include: missing the clear signs of an impending attack, not recognizing the potential of using aircraft as weapons, inadequate watchlisting of potential terrorists, problems with information sharing within the CIA and among the non-intelligence communities within the government, and the lack of gathering of human intelligence from the field.

Overall, the government watchdog found that the CIA and its officers “did not discharge their responsibilities in a satisfactory manner.”

The report in many aspects reached the same conclusions as the 9/11 Commission Report (2004), which was available to the public. The Senate and House Intelligence Committees also prepared a Joint Inquiry (2002) of the performance of the U.S. intelligence communities, which the OIG was asked to review and assess.

The CIA chose to declassify the OIG’s report, along with two responses from former CIA Director George Tenet, “to further contribute to the public record on these events.”

“The events of 9/11 will be forever seared into the memories of all Americans who bore witness to the single greatest tragedy to befall our homeland in recent history,” the CIA said. “The documents released today reflect differing views formed roughly a decade ago within CIA about the Agency’s performance prior to 9/11.”

In a June 2005 letter, Tenet called the OIG’s analysis “nonsense,” “simply in error,” “devoid of any information” from senior policy makers, and said that it “ignores” key facts, The Hill noted.

“Your report does not fairly or accurately portray my actions, or the heroic work of the men and women of the Intelligence Community,” he claimed. “It is simply not fair to make judgments about my performance without having a complete understanding of the facts.”

In the final section of the report, entitled “Issues Related to Saudi Arabia,” the OIG finds that “The team encountered no evidence that the Saudi government knowingly and willingly supported al Qaeda terrorists.” Most of this 30-page section is redacted.

Vice News reports: “Last October, French-born al Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui, the suspected 20th 9/11 hijacker, made an explosive claim. He told lawyers for families of 9/11 victims suing the Saudi government that he had met with high-ranking members of the royal family who financed al Qaeda in the 1990s, including Saudi Arabia’s then intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal, as well as longtime ambassador to the US Prince Bandar Bin Sulan, and Prince Salman, who became king earlier this year.”

The Saudi Embassy released a statement in February addressing Moussaoui’s claims:

There is no evidence to support Zacarias Moussaoui’s claim. The September 11 attack has been the most intensely investigated crime in history and the findings show no involvement by the Saudi government or Saudi officials. As confirmed by the 9/11 Commission, there is “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization [Al-Qaeda].”

Moussaoui is a deranged criminal whose own lawyers presented evidence that he was mentally incompetent. His words have no credibility.

His goal in making these statements only serves to get attention for himself and try to do what he could not do through acts of terrorism – to undermine Saudi-U.S. relations.

Israel And Saudi Arabia Talk About Solutions To Iranian Threat

A poll that was overtly conducted by an Israeli organization, the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), of over 500 citizens of Saudi Arabia revealed that Saudis are far more concerned about the threats of Iran and the Islamic State than of Israel.

Fifty-three percent of Saudis identified Iran as their No. 1 foe, with 22 percent naming the Islamic State and just 18 percent saying Israel is their greatest foe.

Eighty-five percent of Saudi citizens support the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002. This peace offer to Israel by the Arab League was based on full withdrawal to the pre-1967 armistice lines and the ‘right of return’ for Palestinian refugees who fled from villages and cities in what is now Israel during the War of Independence in 1948. Israel would receive full recognition by the Arab states in return.

The government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon rejected the plan at the time because it was a sort of dictate that would replace UN resolutions 242 and 338, which called for negotiations about all outstanding issues. The major stumbling block for Israel was what the plan said about the Palestinian refugees. The plan wanted a “‘just settlement’ of the Palestinian refugee crisis based on UN Resolution 194, which called for a diplomatic resolution to the conflict and resolved that any refugees ‘wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors’ should be able to do so.”

The Arabs have always interpreted this resolution as a holy “right of return” for every refugee and his descendants. Today that would mean an influx of more than six million Palestinian Arabs into Israel and would spell the end of Israel as a Jewish State.

The New York Times dubbed the poll very interesting and potentially groundbreaking, probably because it showed the Saudi population overwhelmingly supports the Arab Peace Initiative.

The paper’s star columnist, Thomas Friedman, was given the scoop about the existence of the peace initiative by the late Saudi King Abdullah in 2002.

“The biggest revelation of the IDC’s investigation is that Iran is, by a large margin, the entity most identified as Saudi Arabia’s biggest enemy by those polled,” wrote Israel Defense on its website

The poll was conducted among 506 Saudi citizens with a margin of error of 5%.

The poll also revealed that a majority of people in Saudi Arabia support “the proliferation of Saudi nuclear weapons if Iran were to acquire them.”

“The poll even revealed that about 25% of the population would like to see Israel and Saudi Arabia join forces in the fight against Iran. This is an amazing discovery and may signal a growing bond between enemies that don’t even officially have any actual communication,” reported Israel Defense.

In reality, however, Saudi Arabia and Israel have had unofficial communication for some time now. Over the last year and a half, former government officials of Israel and Saudi Arabia held five meetings to discuss the Iranian threat. The existence of the contacts was confirmed at a press conference at the Council of Foreign Relations in Washington on June 4th. Dore Gold, the new director-general of Israel’s Foreign Ministry; Shimon Shapira, a retired IDF brigadier-general; and Anwar Majed Eshki, a retired Saudi general, were three of the participants in the talks. The meetings took place in India, Italy, and the Czech Republic.

Shapira told Bloomberg that the Israelis and Saudis discovered they have the same problems and challenges and some of the same answers. He was referring to the Iranian nuclear program and Iran’s aggressive drive for regional hegemony.

Meetings between Israelis and Saudis also took place earlier, according to Israeli media. The contacts between Saudi Arabia and Israel date back to the time of the Madrid Conference in 1990, and continued at least until the outbreak of the Second Intifada in September 2000.

Lately, there has been a lot of speculation in the Israeli press about an agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia about a possible Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. Saudi Arabia is said to have agreed to the use of Saudi Arabia’s airspace by Israeli warplanes if the decision is taken to launch an attack on Iran. Other reports claimed that the two sides have shared intelligence in recent years.

Two weeks ago, Israeli radio reported that diplomats of the Gulf States (including Saudi Arabia) met with their Israeli counterparts in the Jordanian capital of Amman recently. They discussed common security interests.

All this does not mean that both countries are on the verge of establishing normal relations. The only thing that binds them is the fear of Iran and the conviction that the U.S. president is making a historic mistake if he closes a nuclear deal with Iran. Both the Israeli and the Saudi government have harshly criticized Obama’s policies toward Iran and the Middle East in general.

The best proof that official relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel remain a pipe dream was delivered when a Saudi plane landed at Ben Gurion Airport at the beginning of May.

Israeli media quickly started to speculate about a possible normalization of ties with the Kingdom after the mysterious plane landed in Israel. Saudi Arabia, however, immediately poured cold water on Israeli hopes for a normalization of relations. The Saudis cancelled the contract with the Portuguese company that brought the plane to Israel for routine maintenance.

“The company had been given a contract for air transport to provide Saudia with planes for commercial operations,” a statement by the government-owned airline Saudia said.

“Such landing or operation process should take place in a country that shares diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to enable Saudia staff and the Civil Aviation authority to conduct inspection and follow up on the maintenance operation at any time,” the state controlled news site Arab News wrote, citing the contract with the Portuguese company.
