Barack Hussein Obama's assault on American gun owners.

An urgent message from The Patriot Post.

Obama's Assault on Weapons

· Thursday, March 31, 2011

Project Gunrunner Backfires on the Left

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." --Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
Barack Hussein Obama and his Socialist cadre, in their enthusiasm to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," have redoubled efforts to do what all tyrannical governments must do to establish absolute state supremacy and usurp Rule of Law -- disarm the people.
Leftists accomplish this through incremental implementation of gun confiscation measures, most of which are overt political machinations. These include legislation written and promoted by Leftist groups such as the American Bar Association, Physicians for Social Responsibility, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the Violence Policy Center, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and the Brady Campaign.
Current legislation under consideration includes H.R. 308 to limit rounds in magazines, S. 35 to lock in gun show registrations, S. 436 designed to "fix gun checks," and, most disturbing, the reauthorization of Section 215 of The Patriot Act, which permits the FBI to seize gun sale records (4473's) pursuant to "an authorized investigation." Regarding the latter, the Inspector General estimated that between 2003 and 2006, the FBI exceeded its authority under Section 215 in more than 6,000 instances.
The objective of most of this legislation is centralized registration, which provides the federal government with data on the owner of every gun in the U.S. Then, under the duress of, say, the collapse of our economy, Leftists will "justify" confiscation by way of such nefarious measures as an Executive Order -- just as they justified weapons confiscations after Hurricane Katrina.
"Rule one: Never allow a crisis to go to waste," right?
The generation that witnessed the adulteration of our Constitution by Franklin Roosevelt and his Useful Idiots during the Great Depression know exactly what I mean. Fortunately, growing ranks of Patriots across our nation are awakening to this very real threat against our Second Amendment rights.
As FDR aptly demonstrated, the primary method in the Left's playbook for advancing its agenda is to convert tragedy into political capital. That is precisely what they did with the shooting of Democrat Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others in Tucson in January of this year, and that is the rallying point for current gun control legislation.
Of course, claiming "gun violence" is the problem, rather than social entropy institutionalized by FDR's policies and those of his Socialist successors, is a better fit with the Left's agenda.
Another case in point, and one that is now backfiring on the Obama administration, is Project Gunrunner, a government program run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). As you may recall, ATF is an agency that exposed itself as a puppet for political agendas in the botched and bloody assaults at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in 1992 and Waco, Texas, in 1993.
The ATF implemented Project Gunrunner in 2006 as a strategy to track weapon distribution networks between the U.S. and Mexican drug cartels -- a worthy goal on the surface. Problem is, once the guns crossed into Mexico, ATF lost most of its tracking capability, which is to say that efforts to follow the distribution trail and stem the tide ended at the border.
Enter the Obama administration's gun control agenda, which breathed new life into Gunrunner and re-established the ATF leadership's standard ops tempo: SNAFU.
While Project Gunrunner failed in charting weapons distribution channels south of the border, Democrats saw its utility as a means to implement new gun regulations north of the border by asserting that all the violence in the region is the result of gun sales in the U.S.
The Obama administration hoped to make a case that Mexican organized crime syndicates depend on illegal U.S. sales of so-called "assault weapons." In doing so, they hoped to revitalize their political agenda to register and regulate the sale of those weapons -- a major Leftist goal for the last two decades.
With its mission transformed, in 2009 and 2010 the ATF expanded Project Gunrunner offices to McAllen, Texas, El Centro, California, Las Cruces, New Mexico, Sierra Vista, Arizona, and Brownsville, Texas, and added new Gunrunner teams in Tucson and in El Paso, Texas. Project Gunrunner's focus became exposing the illegal sale of guns in the U.S. in support of Obama's political objectives.
But the ATF's Gunrunner is now the subject of a political firefight.
On 28 December 2010, I was contacted by a career federal agent who, like many of his colleagues, honors his oath to "support and defend" our Constitution, whose support and defense is contingent on the Second Amendment's prohibition against government infringement on the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
The contacting agent, who has a good track record of identifying government agendas designed to thwart 2A rights, told me that he suspected the weapon used in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on 14 December was among those lost by the ATF during the Gunrunner operation a few months earlier. Senior career agents in Phoenix and Tucson confirmed that some of the weapons recovered at the scene of the murder of Agent Terry were, indeed, Project Gunrunner weapons, but because the ATF took control of the weapons, it could evade the establishment of any ballistic link between Project Gunrunner and the bullet that killed Terry.
Further, the agent I spoke with confirmed that the mission of Project Gunrunner was now purely political, an effort to "implement the registration of 'assault-type' rifles purchased anywhere in the United States." Obama's political appointees at ATF rejected numerous objections from field agents, including supervisory agents. Some objections were career terminators, including that of the ATF's attaché in Mexico City, Darren Gil, whose objections resulted in forced retirement on 31 December 2010, just two weeks after the murder of Brian Terry.
Now, in response to the ATF's stonewalling on ballistics related to Agent Terry's murder, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, is demanding answers. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), ranking minority member of the Judiciary Committee, is leading Senate inquiries into the connection between Gunrunner and Terry's murder.
Additionally, Grassley has also inquired about the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata on 15 February, which may also involve weapons connected to Project Gunrunner.
For the record, a search of the ATF website, which prominently promotes Project Gunrunner, makes no mention of the murders of CBP Agent Terry or ICE Agent Zapata other than mentioning their names in off-the-shelf condolences.
For his part, Obama says of Gunrunner, "There may be a situation here which a serious mistake was made. If that's the case, then we'll find out and we'll hold someone accountable." He then asserted, "I did not authorize it; Eric Holder, the attorney general, did not authorize it. He's been very clear that our policy is to catch gunrunners and put them into jail."
Obama and Holder may have enough cutouts to provide political insulation from Gunrunner fallout, but their politicization of its mission has not only been responsible for countless deaths in Mexico (more citizens were murdered in the city of Juarez in 2010 than in the nation of Afghanistan), but very likely the murder of two front-line U.S. agents trying to do their job in accordance with their oaths.
The attention focused on Project Gunrunner has been motivated primarily by politics: first, Obama's gun control agenda to politicize the operation, and now the Republicans' agenda to see how far up the chain of command knowledge of the operation went.
Upcoming testimony from Adam Price and Jeffrey Stirling, program managers for Gunrunner at ATF headquarters, may lead to appearances by Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, FBI Director Robert Mueller, DHS Director Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
All the political shenanigans aside, the Left's assault on the Second Amendment is a much bigger contest: Liberty versus Tyranny.
To that end, it's worth recalling the words of James Madison: "The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation ... forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition."
James Madison's appointee to the Supreme Court, Justice Joseph Story, wrote in his 1833 "Commentaries on the Constitution," "The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them."
(Footnote: It is no small irony that as Obama endeavors to disarm the American people, he is contemplating how to arm "freedom fighters" (who are revealed, more each day, to be al-Qa'ida operatives or their useful idiots) in Libya. "I'm not ruling it out," says Obama. "If we wanted to get weapons into Libya, we probably could." Indeed, just call the ATF!)

British newspaper asks: "Just Who is the West Helping in Libya?"

Thanks to the New Zeal for the lead.

The British newspaper, The Telegraph, in London ran a headline story on March 25th that reads:
Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links 

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime. 

5:00PM GMT 25 Mar 2011

In an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, Mr al-Hasidi admitted that he had recruited "around 25" men from the Derna area in eastern Libya to fight against coalition troops in Iraq. Some of them, he said, are "today are on the front lines in Adjabiya".
Mr. al-Hasidi insisted his fighters "are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists," but added that the "members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader".
His revelations came even as Idriss Deby Itno, Chad's president, said al-Qaeda had managed to pillage military arsenals in the Libyan rebel zone and acquired arms, "including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries".
Mr. al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against "the foreign invasion" in Afghanistan, before being "captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan". He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.
US and British government sources said Mr al-Hasidi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Derna and Benghazi in 1995 and 1996.
Meanwhile, back home in America, one of the headline stories in today's newspaper says that the one-time Muslim occupant in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, is considering a plan to send military weapons to the rebels in Libya. As the New Zeal commented, "Yep, that's what we all want. Western blood and treasure making the world safer for al-Qaeda."
Democrats just love to keep the pot boiling on the stove and the standard Hollywood story line says you never kill the bad guy so you can make a profit from the sequel seems to carry over in the halls of Congress. Does anyone remember the billions of dollars in military weapons Democrat Charlie Wilson arranged to be sent to Afghanistan to help the Afghan rebels fight the Russians a few decades ago? Many of those thousands of American-made RPG's (Rocket Propelled Grenades) that the Democrats had sent to Afghanistan were used in Iraq to kill American troops after we invaded that country in 2003. Hell, the Charlie Wilson story was so popular that Hollywood even made a movie about it in 2007 starring liberal leftist Tom Hanks called "Charlie Wilson's War".

"Burning the Koran is terrorism" but burning Christian churches is worse.

The Australian web site Winds of Jihad reported today that Condoleessa Rice, who was Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, was quoted as saying:   “Disrespect for the holy Koran is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be, tolerated by the United States,” she said. “We honor the sacred books of all the world’s great religions. Disrespect for the Holy Koran is abhorrent to us all.” Condoleessa Rice was once considered a conservative Republican but she is also a black woman who now seems more inclined to sympathize with the sentiments of the black extremist Nation of Islam mentality than with mainstream conservatism. In the 2008 presidential campaign she would not say anything bad about Barack Hussein Obama who shares the same view on Islam.
On March 22, Pakistan Ambassador Haroon had written a letter to the UN Secretary General, where he drawn UN attention towards this despicable act of desecration of the Holy Quran by Wayne Sapp and Terry Jones in Florida.

He voiced Pakistan’s profound regret and deep concern at the increasing acts of “Islamophobia and growing trend of intolerance and hatred towards Muslims as well as insults to their religious symbols and personalities”.
Another web site, Jihad Watch reports today,
Islamic ambassadors to Vatican demand Vatican condemnation of Qur'an-burning
Terry Jones is neither a priest nor a Catholic, but the Islamic Republic's Ahlul Bayt News Agency cannot be expected to have mastered the intricacies of Christian sectarianism. But note in any case that we have never seen such outrage and indignation from Islamic ambassadors or any other Muslims regarding any of the jihad terror attacks and plots against non-Muslims in the U.S. or Europe. These so-called "hijackings" of their peaceful faith never seem to move them to this kind of outrage. Note also that the ambassadors are trying to use this incident to attempt yet again to restrict the West's freedom of speech regarding Islam, jihad and Islamic supremacism.
News stories from the Middle East report that Muslim extremists have been on a rampage burning down Christian churches, sometimes even with Christians still inside. Other stories of similar barbarism have been reported in other countries where Christians, Jews and other non-Muslim faiths are being persecuted, tortured and killed. Very few of these stories ever make it into the leftist mainstream news media in spite of the documented reports in the overseas press. Here is a small sample from Bare Naked Islam. These are just a few that don't contain the more graphic photographs. If you have a strong stomach click the link and look at them all.

Pope Benedict condemns ‘senseless attack’ (senseless?) by Muslims on innocent men, women, and children.

Pope Benedict XVI has condemned the ‘senseless attack’ in Pakistan in which seven Christians were burned alive. Hundreds of Muslims torched and looted Christian homes in Gorja. A man, a woman and four children were burned to death in their house, and two other men were shot dead by the rioters.

NIGERIA: 10,000 Christians have been slaughtered by Muslims in the past four years.

Approximately 140 million people inhabit Nigeria. 60% of the population is Muslim living mostly in the North of the country. Christians mainly inhabit the South. The introduction of the Sharia law 10 years ago in 12 states provoked a series of riots throughout the country. In August 2004 the Islamic government in the Zamfara state threatened to demolish all churches considered as illegal structures, close all businesses belonging to Christians during Muslim prayers, and enforce a new law against clothing that is not compliant with Islamic law.

TURKEY: In this ‘secular’ country, Muslim converts to Christianity are beaten, tortured, and have their throats cut open for being Christian.


INDONESIA: Three 12-year-old Indonesian Christian schoolgirls beheaded by Muslims just for being Christians.

Two of the girls’ heads were found in a field while the third girl’s head was found in front of a church. Their crime? Being Christian.

IRAQ: After Muslims killed Christian woman’s husband, they kidnapped her son, then cut off his head, and served it up to her on a bowl of rice.

The more than 2000-year-old Iraqi Christian Community is facing ethnic cleansing at the hands Muslim Terrorists and is in danger of being wiped off the face of the earth.

Charred bodies of Hindu children in India killed by Muslims

The bodies of dead Hindu children lay on the floor of the civil hospital in Gandhinagar after Muslim militants stormed the Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar (Gujarat). 44 Hindus were killed and another 100 seriously injured.

LEBANON: What happened to all the Lebanese Christians?

Brigitte Gabirel, Lebanese Christian, who nearly died under Muslim oppression in Lebanon, talks of  how the transformation of Lebanon from a country that was basically Christian to one that is mostly Muslim today (80%) happened in just several decades.

Back home in America, we too have seen examples of atrocious, disgusting behavior that has been well publicized in our news media. The demonstrations carried out by the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas have infuriated many people who attended some of our military funerals. Carrying signs that say: "Thank God for dead soldiers" these fanatics with demented minds have been granted the right under our First Amendment by the United States Supreme Court to say and do anything they want because they enjoy the same Freedom of Speech as we all do. So my feelings are that if the sensibilities of every American can be assaulted by such disgraceful acts, then burning a so-called "holy book" called a Koran, that is filled with messages of hatred toward other religions, is a far less act of violence than burning down a Christian church and killing the worshipers still inside. Its time to end this mindless politically correct stupidity.

Arming the terrorists is no different from giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Treason is specifically defined in the United States Constitution, the only crime so defined. Article III Section 3 delineates treason as follows: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."

Four decades ago, many people considered actress Jane Fonda's visit to North Vietnam, posing with soldiers and aiming an anti-aircraft gun in the direction of U.S. Navy aircraft was an act of treason for  "Giving aid and comfort" to the enemy. The leftist news media never pursued the story but nevertheless Fonda's movie career floundered due to the public rejection. Fonda was never charged with treason though many people, especially veterans, thought she should have been.

Jump forward to the initial days of the Bush invasion of Iraq and the capture of Baghdad. The great military arsenal of Saddam Hussein was pictured briefly in the news. Acres and acres of unguarded artillery shells stacked on the open ground. Within a few days almost all of that ordnance simply disappeared and for years our troops paid a terrible price for it. The web site FAS Strategic Security Blog  carried this story on its April 2009 blog.
Iraq’s Looted Arms Depots: What the GAO Didn’t Mention
In a recent report, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) attributes the looting of Iraq’s arms depots to the “ovewhelming size and number” of these depots and “prewar planning priorities and certain assumptions that proved to be invalid.” The report finds that the US military “did not adequately secure these [conventional munitions storage] sites during and immediately after the conclusion of major combat operations” and “did not plan for or set up a program to centrally manage and destroy enemy munitions until August 2003…” The munitions looted from Iraqi arsenals, claims the GAO, have been used extensively in the deadly improvised explosive device (IED) attacks that have become tragically commonplace in Iraq. But the IED threat is only part of the story. Iraq’s arsenals were also brimming with shoulder-fired, surface-to-air missiles, thousands of which disappeared during the widespread looting of the regime’s numerous arms depots in 2003.
Read the full story here:

Get the picture? Those looted artillery shells have become the substance of the Improvised Explosive Devices that have maimed and killed thousands of American soldiers. Yet not one U.S. military officer was ever court marshaled for failing to secure those weapons in the days following the fall of Baghdad. How quickly the war in Iraq could have ended had we managed to keep that arsenal out of the hands of the enemy insurgents will never be known.

Another web site The Warning Signs  has a more recent story on March 11, 2011 about the looting of Muammar Gaddafi's weapons depot in Libya and how many of these weapons will be at the disposal of al Qaeda terrorists. This is the more alarming paragraph in this lengthy piece. This story originally appeared on another web site Stratfor Global Intelligance.
Will Libya Again Become The Arsenal Of Terrorism?
By Scott Stewart
The arms depots in Libya have been looted by a number of different actors ranging in motivation from anti-Gadhafi freedom fighters to jihadists to outright thieves and thugs. While the weapons are now being used mostly to fight Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s remaining forces, they could later be diverted to other uses. Arms, ammunition and explosives looted from Libyan arms depots today will likely be serviceable for decades, and the thriving transnational black arms market will provide a mechanism for groups and individuals to sell looted weapons or those received from foreign governments. The bottom line is that weapons from Libya will be available on the black arms market for many years to come.
But the most alarming news about the looting of the weapons depots in Libya comes from Pamela Geller's web site Atlas Shrugs, today in a story she picked up from the Australian web site Among the looted weapons taken from Libya it was confirmed that a number of Russian made SAM 7 surface -to-air guided missles were also stolen.
'Al-Qaeda snatched missiles' in Libya

    * From correspondents in Paris
    * From: AFP
    * March 26, 2011 1:03PM

AL-QAEDA'S offshoot in North Africa has snatched surface-to-air missiles from an arsenal in Libya during the civil strife there, Chad's President says.

Idriss Deby Itno did not say how many surface-to-air missiles were stolen, but told the African weekly Jeune Afrique that he was "100 per cent sure" of his assertion.

"The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere," a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

"This is very serious. AQIM is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region," he said.

His claim was echoed by officials in other countries in the region who said that they were worried that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) might have acquired "heavy weapons", thanks to the insurrection.

"We have sure information. We are very worried for the sub-region," a Malian security source who did not want to be named said.

AQIM originated as an armed Islamist resistance movement to the secular Algerian government.

It now operates mainly in Algeria, Mauritania, Mali and Niger, where it has attacked military targets and taken civilian hostages, particularly Europeans, some of whom it has killed.

"We have the same information," about heavy weapons, including SAM 7 missiles, a military source from Niger said.

"It is very worrying. This overarming is a real danger for the whole zone," he added

"AQIM gets the weapons in two ways; people go and look for the arms in Libya to deliver them to AQIM in the Sahel, or AQIM elements go there themselves."

Elsewhere in the interview, Chad's president backed the assertion by his neighbour and erstwhile enemy Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi that the protests in Libya have been driven in part by al-Qaeda.

"There is a partial truth in what he says," Deby said.

"Up to what point? I don't know. But I am certain that AQIM took an active part in the uprising."

Read more here:
So Treason comes in many forms but it ends up as giving aid to the enemy. One-time Muslim Barack Hussein Obama can visit Egypt and provide encouragement to oppressed Muslims and then we watch the beginning of an uprising that quickly spreads across Northern Africa and the Middle East. Out of the chaos comes the change but the news media has blurred the lines of who is good and who is bad. Countries that were ruled by dictators now appear to going under the rule of the Islamic terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of al Qaeda. And these looted weapons will all be used by the Religion of Peace for humanitarian goals. You can bet on it.


Joe Biden says president should be impeached for attacking a country without Congressional authorization.

There is nothing worse in politics than a hypocrite, although there is nothing better when a hypocrite is reminded when his double standards must apply to himself as well. Unfortunately, we have way too many of them in places of high office. We have all read about the so-called "environmentalist" Al Gore who lectures everyone on the importance of conserving energy while he personally enjoys living in his energy consuming estate in Tennessee that reeks with a gluttony of excess. And the plethora of Democrat tax cheats in Congress and in Barack Hussein Obama's cabinet, the morally bankrupt politicians such as Democrat Senator John Edwards who think adultery is a sport or the phony war heroes such as Edwards running mate Democrat Senator John Kerry. Case in point today is a feature story on Newsmax about a campaign interview given by Democrat Senator Joe Biden criticizing President George Bush's invasion of Iraq.
1. Biden: Impeach President for Unauthorized Attack
Vice President Joe Biden has a very clear idea of what should happen to a president who orders U.S. military forces to launch an attack on a foreign country without congressional authorization: impeachment.
With some voices saying President Barack Obama should face impeachment for attacking Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in Libya, a videotape has surfaced from the 2007 campaign trail showing Biden threatening to impeach President George W. Bush if he attacked Iran without the approval of Congress.
“I have written an extensive legal memorandum with the help of a group of legal scholars who are sort of a stable of people, the best-known constitutional scholars in America, because for 17 years I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Biden said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on “Hardball.”
"I asked them to put together [for] me a draft, which I'm now literally riding between towns editing, that I want to make clear and submit to the United States Senate pointing out the president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran.
“And I want to make it clear, I want it on the record … if he does, as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and former chair of the Judiciary Committee, I will move to impeach him."
He went on to say: “I think the best deterrent is for the president to know, even at the end of his term, we would move and move to follow through with that so his legacy would be marred for all time if he acted in what was clearly, clearly an impeachable offense.
“In the absence of that, what happens is, and you're going to think I'm joking about this — I'm not. If you're going to impeach George Bush you better impeach Cheney first. Not a joke.”
Now if only someone in the mainstream news media would remind Vice-president Joe Biden of his view on unauthorized attacks and ask him how he thinks that applies to the present occupant of the White House. On the same subject, does anyone besides me get the feeling that the word hypocrite is a synonym for Democrat?

Flip Floppin’ Zero Yesterday: Gaddafi Must Go… Obama Today: Gaddafi Can Stay + Gaddafi's Gold.

Love those Aussie's sense of humor. Love it so much I thought the following stories originally tied together on the Winds of Jihad web site from Australia should be passed along intact. Plus, one more story about a huge hoard of gold in Libya to put everything in perspective.
Flip Floppin’ Zero Yesterday: Gaddafi Must Go… Obama Today: Gaddafi Can Stay
by sheikyermami on March 22, 2011
Obama Yesterday: Gaddafi Must Go… Obama Today: Gaddafi Can Stay (GWP)
On Monday Hussein Obama told reporters in Chile that Gaddafi needs to go. But, that was yesterday.
Today Brother Obama told reporters that Gaddafi can stay.
Politico 44 reported:
President Obama indicated on Tuesday that Muammar Qadhafi may still have an opportunity to “change his approach” and put in place “significant reforms” in the Libyan government.
It’s settled then. Gaddafi can stay… Until tomorrow’s press conference.
Flashback # 1:
Flashback # 2:
Washington, Sep. 27/09  (ANI):
Obama provides  2.5 million dollars in economic aid to Libya, including 400,000 dollars for Muammar al-Qaddafi’s foundations.
Of the 400,000 dollars, half will go to a foundation run by the leader’s son, Saif, and the other half to one run by his daughter, Aisha. “Just weeks after the Qaddafi family celebrated the return of a terrorist responsible for the murders of 189 Americans, the U.S. taxpayer should not be asked to reward them with 400,000 dollars,” he wrote. (ANI)

Who are the rebels and why might Israel be forced to pay the price of their Western backing.  Read it all here.
How could removing Gaddafi, who is undeniably a tyrant and fanatically anti-American, not be in America’s interests? The simple answer is that it is unlikely that he will be succeeded by Thomas Jefferson or John Adams. The fact that Gaddafi is a reprehensible human being and no friend of the U.S. does not automatically turn his opponents into Thomas Paine.
Share and Enjoy:
And so now we know that our one-time Muslim leader, Barack Hussein Obama can't make up his mind on what to do with Moammar Gadhafi. And we have also learned that Obama gave this tyrant 2.5 million dollars in aid. But there has also been some news that was reported in various places that Moammar Gadhafi has amassed a hoard of gold bullion, 143.8 tons of it, to be exact, and that's $6,500,000,000. worth. And Obama thought it necessary to send him $2.5 million more!!!
National Public Radio reported on their web site:
Countries around the world have been freezing Moammar Gadhafi's assets, and trying to choke off the flow of money to Libya's state oil company and sovereign wealth fund.
But there's one asset they can't touch: the 143.8 tons of gold in Libya's central bank, which is controlled by Gadhafi. Today's FT describes the $6.5 billion stash as "enough to pay a small army of mercenaries for months or even years."
I can't tell you what Moammar Gadhafi did with the 2.5 million in economic aid Obama gave to him but being a psychopath he probably spent it on a few more missile batteries installed around his compound for protection. And now we are spending $500,000 on each Tomahawk Cruise Missile we shoot over there to destroy those missile sites. Obama really does have his head screwed on backwards. 

There is still nothing patriotic about The Patriot Act. It's time to repeal this assault on The Bill of Rights.

I have written several posts in the past year about my objections to The Patriot Act and my opinions have never changed. The government of a nation founded upon freedom and liberty, a country that acknowledges our God-given rights, should never have allowed 19 Muslim terrorists, who committed a despicable act on 9-11, to strip away the rights granted to Americans in the first ten amendments of our constitution. Yet without even a debate that is exactly what our government did in the months after those four airliners were hijacked. To continue to allow Americans to be denied their rights would be to give another victory to those who attacked us.
Now The Patriot Act is up for another extension but this time Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has guaranteed that a debate and a formal vote on this act will take place. Here are two email notices that I received this evening. The first is from Senator Paul and the second is from John Tate, president of the Campaign For Liberty.

Senator Rand Paul

In the coming weeks, something historic is going to happen in Congress. And with your help, it could provide a meaningful victory for the cause of Liberty.

As you know, recently, I stopped what would have been certain Senate passage of a 3-year extension of parts of the Patriot Act.

And as you also know, this is our best chance since its passage in 2001 to take back our rights from an out of control government.

The Patriot Act was originally passed with almost no debate or real consideration. It has been extended in subsequent years by voice vote and with little protest. But in the coming weeks, the U.S. Senate will devote at least one full week of time to the Patriot Act, with debate, amendments, and, our best hope, the public spotlight.

You see, there’s a reason the state has avoided debate over the Patriot Act: they know that Americans do not want their liberties taken from them.

So please read the email below from my friend John Tate, president of Campaign for Liberty. The letter will tell you more about this urgent battle and what you can do to help.

I’ll be standing up for freedom in the coming weeks in the U.S. Senate, and I hope you’ll join Campaign for Liberty as it leads the fight on the grassroots level.

In Liberty,

Rand Paul

Rand Paul, MD
United States Senator

Politicians taking away your liberty is not Patriotic.

Patriotism does not mean allowing the federal government to ransack your life whenever it feels like it.

In fact, what you and I clearly need is protection from a runaway, out of control, abusive government.

That's why the badly misnamed "Patriot" Act is not the Act of Patriots.

It is the act of petty bureaucrats seeking more and more power and control over not only our country, but every aspect of our lives.

For 10 years now, the so-called "Patriot" Act has been eroding our freedom and growing the federal government into a surveillance state.

And year after year, it gets renewed, almost always without a fight.

But this year is different.

In early February, the U.S. Senate tried to ram through a THREE-YEAR extension of expiring provisions of the Patriot Act.

Even worse, they tried to slip it through without a vote, as they've done in previous years.

Thankfully, the work of Liberty activists like you paid off - newly elected Senator Rand Paul stood up and said "STOP."

They were only allowed to pass a 90-day extension, and within the 90 days, there is to be a full week of debate and Amendments on the Senate floor.

So in ninety days, the statists will have to go on the record for or against the Bill of Rights.

And I'm for making a stir to bring attention to their actions.  A BIG STIR.

How about you?

If you agree, I'm asking you to IMMEDIATELY put the heat on your senators.

TODAY.  There isn't a moment to lose.

This is our chance to show why the Patriot Act is UNPATRIOTIC. But you and I must act immediately.

We've all heard the defenses.  How the Patriot Act was needed to combat "terrorism."  How it would not be used against U.S. citizens.

How it would not be abused.

These lies have all been clearly exposed.  For 10 years, the American people have ignored the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and traded freedom for a false sense of security.  As predicted, both are worse off as a result.

And now, the statists in Congress and the White House are set to reauthorize the so-called "Patriot" Act.

For years, even talk about a window-dressing "reform" bill has gone nowhere.

The Mainstream Media, fixated on Obama, won't report on how the Patriot Act has run roughshod over our liberties.

Frankly, you and I know the Patriot Act should be completely scrapped to block federal snoops from casting fishing nets over the lives, histories, and data of hardworking Americans.

But unless you and I act today, this won't happen, and the Patriot Act will be reauthorized, maybe for another 3 years.  Maybe permanently.

The weak link for the snoop-state insiders remains the U.S. Senate - where one Big Government boondoggle after another has been bottled up or defeated.

But my contacts in the Senate say right now there's a growing chorus of opposition to the Patriot Act being heard.

They say some are willing to fight.  Some even admit privately it was a mistake supporting it the first time when President Bush demanded it in the wake of the outrage following the 9/11 attacks.

And, of course, Senator Paul has already thrown down the gauntlet and said he will lead this fight.

But not enough senators will stand up and take this battle head on unless there is a shout of opposition from the American people.

That's why I urge you to let your senators hear from you immediately.

If not, we'll see a whole lot more of what we've witnessed over the last 10 years:
***  Federal and State law enforcement on fishing expeditions, searching telephone, email, medical, financial, and other records looking for a needle in a haystack - and abridging the freedom of law-abiding citizens everywhere;
***  Warrantless searches and roving wiretaps, paying telephone providers for access to TRILLIONS of phone records, and ignoring 4th amendment protections;
***  Broad new powers for the Treasury Department and Immigration Department to rewrite regulations, access records, and conduct proceedings in secret;
***  Holding American citizens without their constitutional rights simply because someone in the government has declared them an "enemy combatant";
***  Vast amounts of electronic data on virtually every American swept up by insider arrangements and purchases from phone companies, airlines, and other businesses afraid to say no to a government "request."
As you well know, this isn't some conspiracy theory.  This is happening. Every day.

And you and I can help put an end to it.

One of the most egregious abuses of the Constitution, using the Patriot Act as its basis, is so-called "National Security letters," used commonly by the FBI.

It has been estimated that the FBI has used these NSLs - which allow access to records WITHOUT any court or search warrant - at least 200,000 times since 2001.

Just one example, noted in BusinessWeek in 2005, showed that the FBI had issued tens of thousands of NSLs and had obtained one million financial, credit, employment, and health records from the customers of targeted Las Vegas businesses.

Selected businesses included casinos, storage warehouses, and car rental agencies.

And that's just one case.

Our federal government is out of control.  We see it attempting to abridge our 1st amendment rights.

We know it would take away our 2nd amendment rights in a heartbeat if it could, and we remain vigilant to this threat.

It is spending us and our children into poverty, with crushing trillion dollar deficits.

And it is allowing the out of control Fed to ruin the dollar and push forward toward the collapse of our currency and way of life.

And more and more liberty-minded Americans are rising up to shout "stop."

That's why now is the moment to take back our freedoms from the statists and power-hungry federal thugs who use the Patriot Act to dig into every aspect of our lives under the pretense of making us safer.

Campaign for Liberty has a 3-point plan to get as many senators as possible to vote against the Patriot Act.

Remember, as long as Rand Paul holds firm, the statists MUST get 60 votes to break his filibuster, so this is a fight we CAN WIN:
**   Your Petitions, and hundreds of thousands like them, will be delivered to the Senate, showing the tidal wave of opposition to the Patriot Act.
**   Editorials and Op-Eds across the country to help swing the tide of public opinion to oppose this dangerous abuse of power.
**   TV, internet, and Radio Ads in targeted states.
Because of the work of our friend, Senator Paul, Patriot Act extension already became enough of a hot potato that the Senate could only muster a 90-day extension.

Well, I think it's time for the rest of them to hear us loud and clear.
 That's why in addition to your signed Patriot's Petition, I ask you to chip in a contribution of $10, $25, $50, or even $100 to Campaign for Liberty.

Mobilization programs like this cost money for mail, email, research, radio, and especially TV.

And you know the mainstream media will barely cover a story like this; they are just too cozy with statists.

So it's up to us.

Remember, the other side needs 60 votes.  We can and must win this fight.

And there has never been a better chance to do so.

Please join us by signing your Patriot's Petition and helping Campaign for Liberty by chipping in a contribution of $10, $25, $50, or even $100 today.

In Liberty,

John Tate

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan calls Barack Hussein Obama "his brother"

Louis Farrakhan is the rabid anti-white Muslim leader of The Nation of Islam group who happens to be a good friend of Barack Hussein Obama. After reading all about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright it seems that all of Obama's friends think the same way. Like all good patriots Farrakhan happens to live in the same Chicago neighborhood as Weather Underground terrorist, and another good friend of Barack Hussein Obama, William Ayers. Responding to recent attacks on his friend, Louis Farrakhan called Obama "his brother" and conservative columnist Cal Thomas has asked the pertinent question:
Cal Thomas responded to Louis Farrakhan’s attacks this weekend on his brother Obama:
“And I want to know why he’s calling President Obama his brother. Is this a racial brother or is it a religious brother? Now in Evangelical and Christian circles when you call someone a brother it is someone of like faith. What does he mean by that?”
Here is a video from Fox News courtesy of Gateway Pundit:

As another commentator pointed out of the Winds of Jihad web site from Australia:
Nah, we all know that the son of a Muslim is not a Muslim. Even when his grandmother goes to Mecca for the hajj, the enemedia prefers to call her a ‘Christian’, and anyway: all religions are the same, so what if there’s a Muslim in the White House Mosque ten years after 9/11?
So many good questions. They may well be enough to break the camel's back.

Signs of the times. Religion of Peace protest demonstration in London, England.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has recently joined with Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel in voicing concern that Muslim immigrants in their respective countries are not assimilating themselves into their new host country's society. Here is a collection of pictures taken at a recent demonstration over in London, England. It should be pointed out that the percentage of Muslims in Great Britain is a little more than twice what it is in America so that may account for their more outspoken behavior. In America the 10 states with the largest Muslim populations are California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, Texas, Ohio, and Maryland. Like a few American cities such as Dearborn, Michigan that have large numbers of Muslims, the larger the population of Muslims there are, the greater the demands by Muslims to accommodate their religious beliefs.

Wikipedia contains a wealth of documented facts on Muslims in America. Many facts that are conveniently ignored by the Politically Correct news media that often refer to those involved in terrorist plots as just "three New York men" or "six men from New Jersey" yet all those arrested for plotting terrorist acts by the FBI have Muslim names. Here are some lengthy extracts from Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, on American Muslims. The citation references refer to the statement sources.
The number of terror incidents involving Islamic radicals who are U.S. citizens has seen an uptick in recent years.[141] The September 11, 2001 terror attacks by al-Qaeda killed nearly three thousand people. Between 2001 and the end of 2009, the U.S. government reported forty-six incidents of "domestic radicalization and recruitment to jihadist terrorism" that involved at least 125 people. There had been an average of six cases per year since 2001, but that rose to thirteen in 2009.[141]
A March 2010 Bipartisan Policy Center paper points out an increasing number of American Muslims are playing high-level operational roles in al-Qaeda and aligned groups, as well as a larger numbers of American Muslims who are attaching themselves to these groups.[142]
A 2007 Pew poll reported that 15% of American Muslims under the age of 30 supported suicide bombings against civilian targets in at least some circumstances, while a further 11% said it could be "rarely justified." Among those over the age of 30, just 6% expressed their support for the same. (9% of Muslims over 30 and 5% under 30 chose not to answer).[114]
More than 80% of all convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism since 9/11 involve defendants driven by a radical Islamist agenda, a review of Department of Justice statistics shows.[143]
Though Muslims represent about 1% of the American population, they constitute defendants in 186 of the 228 cases DOJ lists.[143]

Some Muslims in the U.S. have adopted anti-American sentiments common in certain Muslim-majority countries.[citation needed] In some cases, these are recent immigrants who have carried their anti-American sentiments with them.[citation needed] The Egyptian cleric, Omar Abdel-Rahman is now serving a jail sentence for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He had a long history of involvement with Islamist and jihadi groups before arriving in the US.[citation needed]
There is an openly anti-American Muslim group in the U.S. The Islamic Thinkers Society [1], found only in New York City, engages in leafleting and picketing to spread their viewpoint.
At least one American not of recent immigrant background, John Walker Lindh, has also been imprisoned, convicted on charges of serving in the Taliban army and carrying weapons against U.S. soldiers. He had converted to Islam in the U.S., moved to Yemen to study Arabic, and then went to Pakistan where he was recruited by the Taliban.
Other notable cases include:
  • The Buffalo Six: Shafal Mosed, Yahya Goba, Sahim Alwan, Mukhtar Al-Bakri, Yasein Taher, Elbaneh Jaber. Six Muslims from the Lackawanna, N.Y. area were charged and convicted for providing material support to al Qaeda.[144]
  • Iyman Faris In October 2003 Iyman Faris was sentenced to 20 years in prison for providing material support and resources to al Qaeda and conspiracy for providing the terrorist organization with information about possible U.S. targets for attack.[144]
  • Ahmed Omar Abu Ali In November 2005 he was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison for providing material support and resources to al Qaeda, conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States, conspiracy to commit air piracy and conspiracy to destroy aircraft.[144]
  • Ali al-Tamimi was convicted and sentenced in April 2005 to life in prison for recruiting Muslims in the US to fight U.S. troops in Afghanistan.[144]
In America, there are a number of Muslim organizations and many such as CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, are linked to the infamous Muslim Brotherhood and have been identified by the US Dept. of Justice as supporters of terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah and al Qaeda. Evidence was presented by the DOJ three years ago in Dallas, Texas at the Holy Land Foundation trial and has been shown here on this blog and many others. The Muslim Students Association is largely represented on college campuses across the nation. Here is a short video taken at one of their recent meetings.
The Muslim Students Association Pledge of Allegiance: "I will die to establish Islam". Tell me again how the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Students Association is not a subversive organization.
Wikipedia contains another article on Terrorism in the United States and supplies the following list of incidents. It needs to be referenced along side the story about London, England to place things in perspective. We seem to have more acts of violence here in America and England seems to have more public displays of protest. Every item listed has a hyperlink to the story.

Islamic Extremism

More than 80% of all convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism since 9/11 involve defendants driven by a radical Islamist agenda, a review of Department of Justice statistics shows.[72]

Islamic Sharia Law in America. This time in Florida.

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch have been warning about the spread of Islamic Sharia Law in America for years. In cases where Muslims have appeared in courtrooms in recent months and their defense was based on some concept of Islamic Sharia Law which contradicted American civil and/or criminal law, a few judges have acquiesced and leaned in their favor. When news of a wife beater in New Jersey who claimed Sharia allowed this was set free by a lower court judge, a number of state legislators began writing new laws and constitutional amendments to ban courts from following any laws other than American Civil Law. Now a judge in a Florida court has allowed a civil case to proceed using Islamic Sharia Law. Atlas Shrugs has this story and the official two page decree signed by the judge:
Sharia Becomes Law in Florida
Despite our dire warnings and the precedents set in Europe, Islamic supremacists reached a milestone in their malevolent goal to eliminate and destroy America.
Atlas readers, AFDI/SIOA will continue to fight this subversion and step up our efforts in states we are working with that are trying desperately to pass anti-sharia (foreign law) legislation. Contact me if you need help.
What was that Hamas-linked CAIR and other Islamic supremacist groups were saying about how it was utterly fanciful that Sharia would ever be used to judge cases in American courts?

Canadian MP Justin Trudeau says, Don't call honor killings "barbaric"

Islamic Sharia Law has already crept into a few of our American courts and several state legislatures have introduced or passed laws to ban judges from applying it toward Muslims who have become entangled with the conflicting rules of our society. American liberals, driven by political correctness, appease the poor conduct of the misunderstanders of Islam to the extent that no matter how terroristic their acts are they are never identified by their religion to hide the fact they were driven by religious goals. Now a Liberal member of the Canadian Parliament has jumped to the defense of Muslims in Canada by condemning the Canadian government for referring to Islamic "Honor Killings" as being "barbaric". The following story was uncovered by Atlas Shrugs.

Honour killings term angers Trudeau

By BRYN WEESE, Parliamentary Bureau
OTTAWA - Liberal MP Justin Trudeau said the government should not call honour killings "barbaric" in a study guide for would-be Canadian citizens.
On Monday, the federal government updated its Discover Canada guide, a pamphlet given to new immigrants to help explain life in Canada and prepare them for the citizenship test.
Among other things, it tells new Canadians that gay marriage is OK and forced marriages are not.
But the guide also says: "Canada's openness and generosity do not extend to barbaric cultural practices that tolerate spousal abuse, 'honour killings,' female genital mutilation, forced marriage or other gender-based violence."
"Those guilty of these crimes are severely punished under Canada's criminal laws," it reads.
Trudeau blasted the Conservatives for using the term "barbaric," even though it's been in the guide since 2009. Forced marriages are the only new item on the list.
"There's nothing that the word 'barbaric' achieves that the words 'absolutely unacceptable' would not have achieved," Trudeau, the Liberal immigration critic, said.
"We accept that these acts are absolutely unacceptable. That's not the debate. In casual conversation, I'd even use the word barbaric to describe female circumcision, for example, but in an official Government of Canada publication, there needs to be a little bit of an attempt at responsible neutrality."
But Immigration Minister Jason Kenney fired back Monday, accusing the Liberals of choosing political correctness over women's rights.
"Despite Trudeau's opposition, we make no apologies for letting immigrant women know their rights. We won't turn a blind eye to the abuse of immigrant women, even if the Ignatieff Liberals prefer we err on the side of political correctness," said Alykhan Velshi, a spokesman for Kenney.
Newcomers are also being warned in the updated guide to leave their "violent, extreme or hateful prejudices" at the door, even if they're coming from a war-torn country or conflict zone.
"Such experiences do not justify bringing to Canada violent, extreme or hateful prejudices. In becoming Canadian, newcomers are expected to embrace democratic principles such as the rule of law," the brochure now reads.
Announcing the changes in Vancouver Monday, Kenney said it's important to make sure newcomers to Canada understand the laws and values of the land.
"We expect people who want to become Canadians to have a good understanding of their rights and responsibilities, and the values and institutions that are rooted in Canada's history," he said. "This study guide has strengthened the value of Canadian citizenship."
Opposition parties lauded the government for including gay marriage in the document. Critics blasted feds last year for omitting gay rights from the first version of the guide, which was introduced in 2009.
Pamela Geller, at Atlas Shrugs was the first to reveal the dirty secrets of  this story a few years ago. Muslim families living in the Western Hemisphere were still following the ancient practices of Islam that permitted fathers and mothers and brothers to murder female children who caused "embarrassment" to the family for almost any reason. Reasons as obscure as using a cell phone, not wearing a burqa in public or dating a boy. It seems in the Muslim culture a family can cleanse itself from the embarrassment caused by a child or wife by killing them to restore the family honor. There have already been several publicized accounts of "honor killings" in America but Pamela Geller actually undertook a public campaign to against them.
Read the complete chilling account here in this article from her web site.
Honor Killing: Islam's Gruesome Gallery
Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Another young woman  tortured and murdered  to add to the gruesome gallery..... The horror of these young girls terror stricken victims, who live in homemade concentration camps is given the imprimatur of the West in its complicit silence -  the urbane  face of bloodthirsty savagery. The West looks away and more girls lead desperate, brutal lives. The "Feminists" look away and pretend it is outside the realm of women's rights-  leftists tools of Islamic jihad..  These useful idiots  are on someone's payroll or they fear Islam. Either way, get out of the way.  Shame on all of you for failing our women, our children, our girls, our very way of life. How dare they throw our superior culture with both hands.
