Does Obama draw on his life experiences or is he sending cryptic messages to our enemies?


Five years ago, when the leftist, pro-Democrat mainstream news media was trying to decide how it was going to white-wash the gaffes and blunders of their messianic candidate Barack Hussein Obama, most of his slip-ups were simply ignored. Such as, in May 2008 in Beaverton, Oregon during a presidential campaign stop, Barack Hussein Obama said he had visited 57 states during his campaign. This was coming from the same Democrat who didn't know how to place his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is being played. You remember his famous crotch salute?  
Turns out the gaffe about the 57 states may have been an example of someone drawing on their life's experiences because while we know there are 50 states to the United States of America, Obama wasn't raised as an American, he was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia and later mentored by a Communist in Hawaii. He was taught in Indonesia that there are 57 member states in the OIC, the Organization of the Islamic Conference. But on the other hand, maybe it wasn't a slip of the tongue, maybe it was an intentional message to be picked up in those 57 Islamic states that they had a candidate who was on their side.

Read the following column by Diana West and see how these cryptic messages work. And here are some photos I found.

From the "Five Pillars" to the "Sword and the Shield"

Written by: Diana West

When I was speaking about American Betrayal with Sandy Rios this morning on AFR Talk, she brought up a fascinating item at the American Spectator by Paul Kengor and Ion Mihai Pacepa (both of whom I quote in my book, as a matter of fact).
They write:
In watching President Obama speak on terrorism last week, we were taken aback to hear him say that America needs an anti-terrorism program that is both our sword and our shield. This was a striking choice of words by an American president. Remember the emblem of the KGB? Maybe you don’t, but we do. One of us (Pacepa) spent over two decades working for the KGB community as one of the highest ranking intelligence/military/political officials in the entire Soviet Bloc, and paid with two death sentences for his freedom. The emblem of the KGB was a sword and a shield symbolizing its duties: to put the country’s enemies to the sword, and to shield and protect the communist revolution. 

When we initially heard President Obama’s remarks, we thought we might have heard wrong, and so we waited for the written text of his speech. Here is the prepared text, as published in the Wall Street Journal after the speech:
“Our victory against terrorism won’t be measured in a surrender ceremony on a battleship, or a statue being pulled to the ground. Victory will be measured in parents taking their kids to school; immigrants coming to our shores; fans taking in a ballgame; a veteran starting a business; a bustling city street. The quiet determination; that strength of character and bond of fellowship; that refutation of fear – that is both our sword and our shield.” 

To repeat: the sword and the shield is well known as the KGB’s emblem. To give just one example, many readers of this site are familiar with the classic work on the KGB archives, The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB.
I draw heavily on Mitrokhin archives as well. 
When Sandy mentioned this "sword and shield" line, my mind raced back to a similar sloganeering coincidence (?) in an earlier Obama speech. Addressing the economy in 2009 at Georgetown, Obama laid out "five pillars" of economic recovery. Islam, of course, famously has "five pillars." 
Kengor and Pacepa continue:
Unfortunately, we’ve become sadly conditioned — by President Obama himself — to notice these often-bizarre coincidences And then, for his 2012 reelection slogan, the president and his handlers chose the communist world’s old socialist battle cry: “Forward!”. This was a man who spent his first term engaging in the most strident class-warfare rhetoric we’ve ever heard from an American president. He demonized profits, corporations, Wall Street, corporate executives and fat-cats, the wealthy, millionaires and billionaires, big oil, big banks, bitter-clingers, while touting wealth redistribution, government stimulus, government management, government centralization, and on and on. Much of this was standard Socialist rhetoric.  
Bizarre coincidence -- or messaging?

In Washington the conservatives get the rhetoric and the liberals get the action.

  
Sometimes it seems that as far as politics goes, nothing changes. I have been politically aware since the mid-1960s and in those seemingly ancient days when wars were more often cold than hot, my country was still the most powerful in the world and we had peace at home. Sort of, anyway. The biggest scandal then was the liberal policies of the State Department dictating to our Armed Forces on how to fight the Communist forces in Vietnam. And apologizing to our allies when we accidentally shot up one of their ships supplying aid to our enemy. That was so long ago that back then we still had good relations with most of the Arab countries and no one ever heard of a Mosque being built in one of our neighborhoods. But the pot was always simmering on the back burner of the stove. I know because I worked for Pan American World Airways for 30 years and we used to fly to every one of those countries that now hate us today. Pan Am was so widely known around the world that we were often looked upon as being the American flag representative of our country and our government. We were the favorite target of the radical Islamic movement back then and several of our aircraft were hijacked and blown up. This was our reward for pioneering air routes into the Middle East and elsewhere. But this is not about Pan Am, it is about politics, and about selling out our government. Pan Am died because of mismanagement, and so is our once great nation suffering the same fate.

Today we are reading about the multitude of scandals surrounding the Democratic Party being investigated by Congressional committees. Every day brings some new rhetoric to the headlines and seemingly nothing happens beyond the talk, talk and more talk. I am reminded of the wisdom spoken in years past when the news media used to tell the truth and the most famous quote that comes to mind is: "In Washington the conservatives get the rhetoric and the liberals get the action." Back in the 1950's we used to have a House Committee on Un-American Activities. The House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) was an investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives. It was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties. We learned about a State Department employee named Alger Hiss who was a Communist spy and who was also the first Acting Secretary General of the United Nations during the establishment conference in San Francisco in 1945. Wikipedia has this:
Alger Hiss (November 11, 1904 – November 15, 1996) was an American lawyer, government official, author, and lecturer. He was involved in the establishment of the United Nations both as a U.S. State Department and U.N. official. Hiss was accused of being a Soviet spy in 1948 and convicted of perjury in connection with this charge in 1950.
On August 3, 1948, Whittaker Chambers, a former Communist Party member, testified under subpoena before the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) that Hiss had secretly been a Communist while in federal service. Chambers had previously testified under oath that Hiss had never been a Communist or a spy, and Chambers would admit, under oath, to other instances where he had committed perjury under oath. Called before HUAC, Hiss categorically denied the charge. When Chambers repeated his claim on nationwide radio, Hiss filed a defamation lawsuit against him.
During the pretrial discovery process, Chambers produced new evidence indicating that he and Hiss had been involved in espionage, which both men had previously denied under oath to HUAC. A federal grand jury indicted Hiss on two counts of perjury; Chambers admitted to the same offense but, as a cooperating government witness, was never charged. Although Hiss's indictment stemmed from the alleged espionage, he could not be tried for that crime because the statute of limitations had expired. After a mistrial due to a hung jury, Hiss was tried a second time. In January 1950, he was found guilty on both counts of perjury and received two concurrent five-year sentences, of which he eventually served three and a half years.
Hiss was secretary-general of the San Francisco United Nations Conference on International Organization (the United Nations Charter Conference), which began on April 25
Two generations ago, we put Soviet spies in prison and a few more in the electric chair. Today, the primary influence on the Democratic Party comes from the left-wing group called the Democratic Socialists of America. Barack Hussein Obama even boasts of a longtime childhood mentor, Frank Marshal Davis, who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, and the most powerful advisers in The White House are David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, both known to have parents who were members of the Communist Party.

Today, in Washington, the conservatives get the rhetoric and the liberals get the action. And the mainstream news media, supposed to be the protectors of our free speech and bastion of our freedom of the press are virtually all members of the Democratic Party and appear more like a state-run Ministry of Information and white-washer of all things uncomplimentary to the Democratic leadership. Even while the latest scandal in our nation's capitol involved the wire-tapping of phones from the Associated Press by the Dept. of Justice, and the subpoena of emails from a Fox News reporter - both obvious attacks on our First Amendment, the news media is taking a much less than concerned approach to covering the story. 

Today, our sworn enemy, as we have been reminded by countless clerics around the world, is the radical teachings of Islam that has prompted so many disastrous attacks on our country. And our response was to have elected an occupant to The White House who was himself once and may still be a Muslim. And who has surrounded himself with radical members of The Muslim Brotherhood. And we have now purged all of our government training manuals of all mention about Islam. And the mainstream news media remains quiet. And the Dept. of Homeland Security identifies conservatives who support the Second Amendment as potential terrorists but does not see any terrorist motivation when a Muslim in the U.S. Army who identified himself as a Soldier of Allah murders a room full of unarmed soldiers while yelling Allahu Akbar, the Muslim proclamation that Allah is Great. Or that the Dept. of Defense claims that Christians in our military may be against our government and can be Court Marshaled for preaching their faith.

Today, we have learned of another scandal in Washington wherein officials working for the Internal Revenue Service have been targeting conservative groups because they oppose the corruption in Washington. There is nothing strange about this scandal, it is an act of revenge similar to the Stalin purges of the 1950's but without the bloodshed. Matter of fact, it was reported that Barack Hussein Obama's Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett, the same Red Diaper Baby mentioned above, and the most influential person in Washington supposedly told her staff:  “After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.  Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” But the Republicans who control the House of Representatives are merely concentrating their attention on low and mid-level IRS officials not the policy makers in The White House who set the marching orders.  They are certainly getting a lot of the rhetoric making speeches about who is going to jail and such but they seem to be more interested in making this into some political advantage in the next elections rather than actually charging anyone with perjury. This certainly isn't like it used to be in the 1950's. Guess the only way to impeach a president is to catch him lying about sex in the Oval Office. Committing Treason is too nasty to even think about in our Politically Correct times.

Muslims in The White House directing the FBI, the CIA and the DoD, now we just lost our Top Secret weapons systems secrets to Communist China.

 

Surprise, Surprise!!!! China Has Plans of Major U.S. Weapon’s Systems

Submitted by on May 28, 2013 – 6:16 pm  
This is no joke folks. This puts millions of lives at risk. Maybe even U.S. national survival.
China_Chinese_army_military_power_16-March_2013_640_001
From Russia Today:
The designs for more than two dozen major weapons systems used by the United States military have fallen into the hands of the Chinese, US Department of Defense officials say.
Blueprints for the Pentagon’s most advanced weaponry, including the Black Hawk helicopter and the brand new Littoral Combat Ship used by the Navy, have all been compromised, the Defense Science Board claims in a new confidential report.
The Washington Post acknowledged late Monday that they have seen a copy of the report and confirmed that the Chinese now have the know-how to emulate some of the Pentagon’s most sophisticated programs.
“This is billions of dollars of combat advantage for China,” a senior military official not authorized to speak on the record told Post reporters. “They’ve just saved themselves 25 years of research and development.”
“It’s nuts,” the source said of the report.
The Defense Science Board, a civilian advisory committee within the Pentagon, fell short of accusing the Chinese of stealing the designs. However, the Post’s report comes on the heels of formal condemnation courtesy of the DoD issued only earlier this month.
“In 2012, numerous computer systems around the world, including those owned by the US government, continued to be targeted for intrusions, some of which appear to be attributable directly to the Chinese government and military,” the Defense Department alleged in a previous report.
Ellen Nakashima, the Post reporter who detailed the DSB analysis this week, wrote that the computer systems at the Pentagon may not have necessarily been breached. Instead, rather, she suggested that the defense contractors who built these weapons programs have likely been subjected to a security breach. US officials speaking on condition of anonymity, she reported, said that a closed door meeting last year ended with evidence being presented of major defense contractors suffering from intrusions. When reached for comment, the largest defense contractors — Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman — all refused to weigh in.
Chinese hackers have previously been accused of waging cyberattacks on a number of US entities, including billion-dollar corporations and governmental departments. In 2007 it was reported that China accumulated the blueprints for the Pentagon’s F-35 fighter jets, the most expensive weapons program ever created, but the latest news from the DSB decries that much more has been compromised.
According to the Post, the plans for the advanced Patriot missile system, an Army anti-ballistic program and a number of aircraft have all ended up in the hands of the Chinese. The result could mean the People’s Republic is working towards recreating the hallmarks of America’s military might for their own offensive purposes, while also putting China in a position where even the most advanced weaponry in the world won’t be able to withstand complex defensive capabilities once those projects are reverse engineered.
“If they got into the combat systems, it enables them to understand it to be able to jam it or otherwise disable it,” Winslow T. Wheeler, director of the Straus Military Reform Project at the Project on Government Oversight, told the Post. “If they’ve got into the basic algorithms for the missile and how they behave, somebody better get out a clean piece of paper and start to design all over again.”
Mandiant, a US security firm located outside of Washington, reported earlier this year that China has enlisted an elite squadron of cyber warrior to attack American computer systems and conduct espionage on behalf of the People’s Liberation Army. When the report was released in February, Mandiant said the PLA’s elusive Unit 61398 has successfully compromised the networks of more than 141 companies across 20 major industries, including Coca-Cola and a Canadian utility company. Those hacks reportedly subsided after Mandiant went public with their claims, but earlier this month the firm said those attacks have since been renewed.
“They dialed it back for a little while, though other groups that also wear uniforms didn’t even bother to do that,” CEO Kevin Mandia told the New York Times recently. “I think you have to view this as the new normal.”
On their part, China has adamantly denied all claims that they’ve waged attacks on US networks. Following Mandiant’s initial report, a spokesperson for China’s foreign ministry said the claims were “irresponsible and unprofessional.”
“Hacking attacks are transnational and anonymous,” Hong Lei said. “Determining their origins are extremely difficult. We don’t know how the evidence in this so-called report can be tenable.”
So much for the notion, popular in even some conservative circles, that China would never attack America, because “we owe them too much money.”
China has a huge social time bomb ticking. Millions of young men will never marry, because of the shortage of women caused by the “one child” policy.
China’s Communist rulers know that those young men could turn on them, at a moment’s notice.
A war with America, in conjunction with Russia, Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Islamic terrorists, would solve two major problems for China.
Firstly, it would eliminate millions of troublesome young men. Secondly, the Chinese are confident it would deliver them the best substantial chunk of “living space” on the planet – the Continental United States. Siberia? Or California, Colorado and the Carolinas? Which would you choose?
If any American seriously doesn’t think China is planning for a major war, please contact me. I own a bridge in New York that you might be interested in buying.
And we thought it was bad when the Made in China merchandise sold at Wal-Mart helped China pay for their new, modern aircraft carrier.


   

Obama's IRS strategy coming straight out of communist Saul Alinsky's playbook.


Kris Zane from The Western Center for Journalism has really nailed this case shut. I only wish that the current investigation into the Internal Revenue Service scandal by the House Ways and Means Committee could read this. And make no mistake about the inclusion of Barack Hussein Obama's name in the title, this scandal began in The White House and the message was conveyed to the staff by Valerie Jarrett in her ominous threat “After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.  Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”. And  as another story on The American Thinker has also documented. Read Rick Moran's May 27, 2013 post IRS officials visited White House more than 100 times during targeting

Obama’s IRS Spies 

May 28, 2013 Kris Zane


Floyd Brown, in his prescient exposĂ© Obama’s Enemies List, shouted from the highest mountain, warning of a rogue Obama administration and its mammoth enemies list; but the Establishment refused to listen. Now that the IRS scandal and attack on the Press has proven him right, the mainstream media is playing catch up.

As long as it was just those so-called “extremist” Tea Party, pro-life, and Christian groups that were being attacked, no one seemed to care. But now that we know the Obama administration is an “equal opportunity” attacker, going after the Associated Press, Fox News, local reporters, Romney donors, Benghazi whistleblowers, etc., etc. (with more Obama enemies sure to surface), the country now seems to be taking notice.

But this is only the surface of how the Obama enemies list works. Everything, and I mean everything, is geared towards an enemies list, which is predicated on having an extensive surveillance state.

The communist Saul Alinsky, Barack Hussein Obama’s favorite community organizer, famously said, “The issue is never the issue.” Put a little more plainly: “Deception is our Modus Operandi.”

Case in point: ObamaCare.

Presumably, ObamaCare is about access to healthcare. But doctors are dropping out of the healthcare system in droves, healthcare is already being rationed, and healthcare costs are skyrocketing as much as four hundred percent.

The issue is never the issue. ObamaCare is not about access to healthcare; it’s about an elaborate system to support an enemies list.

Enter the IRS, now in charge of ObamaCare.

In order for the IRS to supposedly determine whether Americans are eligible for government subsidies to pay for mandated health insurance, they must collect a horrendous amount of information on every single American. The IRS is creating a database so vast that it makes George Orwell’s dystopian society in the book 1984 look like amateur hour. Called the Federal Data Services Hub, it will combine the IRS’s income and employment database with the Social Security, Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and Health and Human Services databases. Combined with the proposed Immigration Bill creating a national ID system, this will be the mother of all databases—the mother of a complete and total surveillance state.

Does America really believe that the same woman behind the targeting of conservatives at the IRS, former commissioner of tax exempt and government entities Sarah Hall Ingram, now promoted to the head of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, was a coincidence? That the person in charge of sending hundreds of questionnaires to Tea Party, pro-life, and Christian groups asking for personal information was promoted to the ObamaCare office by some objective bureaucratic points system?

The issue is never the issue. ObamaCare is not about healthcare; it’s about surveillance. It’s about control. But most importantly, it’s about having access to the information of your enemies. And Obama specifically chose Sarah Hall Ingram to be in charge of this mammoth enemies list.

Conservative groups were prevented from obtaining tax-exempt status by the IRS, forcing them to divulge donor lists, intern lists, and political and family connections, Facebook posts, tweets, event records, transcripts of speeches, even the content of their prayers, all as part of an effort to collect data on their enemies.

Imagine you are a Tea Party member who needs hip replacement surgery. Sarah Hall Ingram, Obama’s chief ObamaCare enforcer, sees the request but also sees through her extensive database that you are part of a local Tea Party group that had opposed ObamaCare, the plan you are now locked into. Think you’ll get a hip replacement? Think again. First will come the endless questions. First will come the long wait. Only when you come around to Obama’s “common sense” approached to healthcare (that is, socialized medicine) and drop the whole perceived Tea Party nonsense will you get the healthcare you need.

The issue is never the issue. ObamaCare is not about healthcare; it’s about a surveillance state. It’s about Obama having access to information on his enemies.

If ObamaCare is allowed to continue—if the Obama administration is allowed to continue, we will no longer have a United States of America. It will be something else. A truly Orwellian nightmare with Barack Hussein Obama as Big Brother and the enemies of the state being conservatives.

Memorial Day, 2013. We should never forget those who gave their lives to ensure our freedom.


All across Europe there are cemeteries containing the remains of American soldiers and airmen who paid the ultimate price to ensure that freedom lived on for others. "All gave some but some gave all" and for that sacrifice we should never forget.
Barack Hussein Obama has traveled across the globe telling every nation we should apologize for America's arrogance. Obama has no pride in America or in Americans because he isn't one. He was raised by people who hated America. Here are examples of our European arrogance in alphabetical order:
1. The American Cemetery at Aisne-Marne, France... A total of 2289 American soldiers buried there.
2. The American Cemetery at Ardennes, Belgium... A total of 5329 American soldiers buried there.
3. The American Cemetery at Brittany, France .... A total of 4410 American soldiers buried there.
4. Brookwood, England American Cemetery... A total of 468 American soldiers buried there.
5. Cambridge, England… A total of 3812 American soldiers buried there.
6. Epinal, France, American Cemetery... A total of 5525 American soldiers buried there.
7. Flanders Field , Belgium ... A total of 368 American soldiers buried there.
8. Florence, Italy... A total of 4402 American soldiers buried there.
9. Henri-Chapelle, Belgium... A total of 7992 American soldiers buried there.
10. Lorraine, France... A total of 10,489 American soldiers buried there.
11. Luxembourg, Luxembourg... A total of 5076 American soldiers buried there.
12. Meuse-Argonne… A total of 14246 American soldiers buried there.
13. Netherlands, Netherlands... A total of 8301 American soldiers buried there.
14. Normandy, France ... A total of 9387 American soldiers buried there.
15. Oise-Aisne, France... A total of 6012 American soldiers buried there.
16. Rhone, France... A total of 861 American soldiers buried there.
17. Sicily, Italy... A total of 7861 American soldiers buried there.
18. Somme, France... A total of 1844 American soldiers buried there.
19. St. Mihiel, France ... A total of 4153 American soldiers buried there.
20. Suresnes, France... a total of 1541 American soldiers buried there.
America has no need to apologize to anyone. Remind those of our sacrifice and don't confuse arrogance with leadership. The count is 104,366 dead brave Americans. And we have to watch an American elected leader who apologizes to Europe and the Middle East that our country is "arrogant"!

 THIS IS WHAT REALLY MAKES ME PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Preparation for Memorial Day
It is

History repeats itself: NYPost headline "Obama Admits He’s A Socialist " a la Fidel Castro.


First, a little background. Do you remember the glowing stories about The Robin Hood of the Sierra Madre's published in The New York Times back in the 1950's? It involved the Communist Revolution in Cuba but to the readers of The New York Times it was all about a band of freedom fighters in the Sierra Madre Mountains robbing the rich to help the poor. As the story goes, (I heard this 40 years ago so this is how I remember it) on the day that Fidel Castro took control of the Cuban government he proclaimed to the world that he was a communist and always had been a communist. As this news reached New York City, the New York Times, which up to that point had been glowingly describing Castro as the Robin Hood of the Sierra Madre, ran an editorial that said, We don't believe him. And on that day the Gray Lady wet her pants.

Well, we all know that America now has its own Communist Revolution //aka// the Democratic Party who. along with the support of the leftist mainstream news media, took over our own government with the same help and  misinformation and lies as The New York Times gave to Castro. The charismatic hero this time was an affable black Muslim dude who was mentored for 10 years by a card carrying member of the Communist Party before he went off to college and has kept looking left ever since. Like in the aforementioned story about Fidel Castro, we have all been waiting for the day that Barack Hussein Obama comes out of the closet and admits he is a Muslim and a Communist (and maybe even a bi-sexual) and has been all his life. After all, he doesn't have to worry about any more elections, he even said so, so why not come clean about it. But maybe he has been dropping some hints. Like this story in the New York Post.

Obama admits he’s a socialist

What his ‘Bulworth’ fantasy reveals

  • Last Updated: 1:31 PM, May 19, 2013
  • Posted: 10:28 PM, May 18, 2013
You may be forgiven if you missed it during last week’s tsunami of scandals, but President Obama finally let slip that he is a socialist.
 
Buried in the 17th paragraph of one of those mewling New York Times pieces on the woes of Obama — can we start calling him Woe-bama yet? — appeared these two words: “going Bulworth.”

Obama himself, the Times explained, has been “longingly” telling his inner circle that what he’d really like to do is what Sen. Jay Bulworth, played by Warren Beatty in his 1998 movie “Bulworth,” did: to go public as an unabashed, angry and admitted socialist.

Read the rest here:  http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolumnists/obama_admits_he_socialist_pW7TL907rIGq7SyJCYLBoN

"Many a true word is spoken in jest" said William Shakespeare and "Some truths, too painful or too likely to provoke, can be spoken only when the listener has been disarmed by laughter" are proverbial truths.
Barack Hussein Obama cracked a joke at the White House Correspondents Dinner last month when he said, "I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be.” The correspondents who worked for the Democrat Party rolled in laughter. Really, Barry? After you wrote about being mentored for 10 years by a card-carrying Communist named Frank Marshall Davis before you went off to college I would never have guessed you were a socialist. And after you were enrolled in school in Indonesia as a Muslim where you learned to appreciate the sound of the Muslim call to prayers 5 times a day and to read and recite the Qur'an in fluent Arabic, I would never have guessed you were a Muslim. And if you still are a Muslim you must be a very special one who enjoys privileges that no other Muslim enjoys, because as you know Islam demands that homosexuals be condemned to death and if you are no longer a Muslim you also know Islam demands that those who convert to another religion from Islam become Apostates and they also are condemned to death.

From Jihad Watch: Prominent American Muslim, Umar Lee, leaves Islam: "We were lied to"


Prominent American Muslim, Umar Lee, leaves Islam: "We were lied to"


Umar Lee, a convert to Islam from St. Louis, was once enough of an Islamic supremacist to write to a rival: "i could cut your neck with the sword of islam and watch you squeal like a bitch like daniel pearl." In an email exchange with me, he endorsed the death penalty for apostasy.
But now he has left Islam and returned to Christianity. Watch the video; in it he makes many, many important points about how converts to Islam are lied to, and how Islam establishes an empire of fear.
Note especially this, starting at 4:04:
"We can talk about the grievance industry, CAIR, etc., trying to hype up the threat of Islamophobia. Islamophobia is very minor. You want to talk about religious bias? You convert to Christianity in Saudi Arabia, you're murdered. You convert from Islam in so many Muslim countries, it's the death penalty. Why are Muslim societies so afraid of missionaries? Why are Muslim societies so afraid of freedom of speech? Why are Muslim societies so afraid of the Gospel? Why are Muslim societies so afraid of the message of Jesus Christ? If you believe Islam is the truth, why don't you believe Islam can compete in the marketplace of ideas? Obviously you don't, or you wouldn't kill people that convert to Christianity and put missionaries in jail."
Clearly they don't believe Islam can compete in the marketplace of ideas. Just yesterday I offered to debate UC-Berkeley's professor of "Islamophobia," Hatem Bazian. He responded: "Racist are not to be debated they are to be shunned." (Yes, this university professor wrote "racist are." He didn't explain what race jihad terror is. They never do. This "racism" business is just a cover for what Umar Lee says: their knowledge of and fear of the fact that they know their ideas can't compete, or hold up to scrutiny.

Umar: be well, and be safe.

Conservative candidates faced with consequences from scam solicitors.



The telephone calls come in 12 hours a day and they all sound the same. First there is the sound of dead silence for one or two seconds while I say "Hello," and then the call connects to what sounds like a room full of people all making their own calls. The caller comes on the line and begins to recite a legal statement that I hear several times a day: "I'm calling on behalf of xxxxx". I'm sure you are, you are a paid employee working for a professional fund-raising company and a very large percentage of the money you raise becomes a profit for your employer and very little goes to the person you are calling about. I have developed two strategies to handle this, first, when I answer the phone and I hear the first seconds of silence I know it is coming from a mass marketer who has probably called 5 phone numbers at once and waits to see who answers first. All I do is simply hang up before the caller comes on the line. My second method, if the caller is already there is to interrupt his legal pitch by telling him, "I do not respond to telephone solicitations." and I hang up the phone before he can read any more from his scripted message.


Dear Nelson,

Michael Bloomberg and his liberal allies think their $700,000 smear campaign will pressure me into changing my vote on the Manchin-Toomey gun control bill.

They couldn't be more wrong.

As a mother, I am 100% dedicated to fighting gun violence. But I also have the experience to know that expanding an already broken background check system will not prevent a deranged individual or criminal from obtaining and misusing firearms. That's why I've been working to find solutions that will stop criminals and those who are mentally ill from obtaining guns. And that's why I've helped introduce and voted for the Protecting Communities and Preserving the Second Amendment Act, which doesn't just improve the existing background check system, it tackles the inherent issues behind gun violence by:


  • Punishing those who try to access guns illegally;

  • Addressing mental health gaps in the criminal justice system;

  • Boosting resources to improve school safety; and

  • Criminalizing gun trafficking and straw purchases.

I will continue pushing for the Protecting Communities and Preserving the Second Amendment Act until it becomes law. Bloomberg and company can spend as much as they'd like distorting my record and smearing my character, but I won't back down.

Will you stand with me and help me fight back by making an emergency donation of $25, $50, $100 or more right away?

I've spent nearly my entire career fighting crime. As Attorney General, I cracked down on sexual predators and prosecuted and convicted dozens or murderers. And if I learned one thing, it's that there are no easy answers to eradicating violent crimes.

Even if the proposed expansion of background checks had been in place, unfortunately it wouldn't have prevented a horrific tragedy such as the one in Connecticut — where the perpetrator obtained the firearms he used from his mother, who owned them lawfully.

I want to find solutions that will stop criminals and those who are mentally ill from obtaining firearms. I want to make sure we punish those who try to access guns illegally. And I want to improve the nation's mental health system so that those who are on the front lines can identify the warning signs of mental illness and help those in need get proper help. But restricting the Constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners is not the answer, and misleading television and radio ads are counterproductive and only help to poison this important discussion.

Please stand with me today and help me fight back by making an emergency contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

Kelly Ayotte

U.S. Senator

P.S. I'm 100% committed to fighting gun violence, and one quick glance at my record will confirm this. But I urgently need your help to fight back against an onslaught of attacks from Michael Bloomberg and various liberal activist groups. Please make an emergency contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more today to help me set the record straight. Thanks—Kelly



Paid for by Friends of Kelly Ayotte

Then the emails come into my mailbox a dozen at a time and they all have a similar catch-phrase at the bottom: "Paid for by friends of xxxx" and more often than not they don't accept replies. And does the person whose name is mentioned even know you are sending these out? I could set up an account and claim to be friends of anyone and solicit contributions in their name. If I just take out a single newspaper ad supporting them - does it make my profits legal? Some don't even bother. In the last national election, probably the most important and crucial one in our history, dozens of scam operations purchased mailing lists from notable Republicans like Karl Rove and began asking for donations via email, telephone solicitations and bulk postal mailings in the name of popular conservative candidates. And almost none of the money they raised was ever seen by the candidate or spent in their name. Congressman Allen West was a favorite, probably because he was so popular. His photo appeared on at least a score of different solicitations. The Tea Party is another. Can you imagine how many different iterations there are using the two words Tea Party in the body or prefix of a group? i.e. American Tea Party, Tea Party of America, etc. I have no idea which ones are legitimate and which are scams any more. Now I'm getting emails from "Friends of Senator Kelly Ayotte", the popular conservative Republican from New Hampshire  and Nevada Republican Sharron Angle, the NRA Life Member who lost the Senate race to Democrat Harry Reid. After being burned by the scams in 2012 I have serious doubts about the emails and phone calls and bulk mail that arrives every day.
The only legitimate way I know to contact an elected official is through their government web site and because I agreed so much with the message received from Kelly Ayotte I wanted to verify that it came from her campaign. I sent an email to her Senate address - and never got a reply. Is someone or some group using Kelly Ayotte's name for personal gain or is this legitimate? I don't know but I do know I am skeptical and won't fall for this again. I rather like her campaign, too, and would like to help but not after what happened last year.

And my other favorite is Sharron Angle. She became the underdog favorite that forced the NRA to withhold their endorsement of Democrat Harry Reid. I made a few contributions to her campaign last year and have wondered ever since if she got them. Now I'm on her mailing list - or at least I am on someone's mailing list that is using her name. I can't be sure.
Here is an update to the email solicitation I received from Our Voice Pac. I found the web site Open Secrets had a breakdown on the receipts and expenditures for this group. It seems that in the 2012 election cycle, Our Voice Pac didn't contribute any money to any Federal elections campaign.

Dear Patriot,

President Obama and his Administration are hiding more than we thought. How do we know that? They’re still dodging questions.

They’ve lied from the beginning – first about whether the attack on Benghazi was terrorism, then about why it was done, and who did it. They left Americans stranded in Benghazi and then lied to cover up their failure and incompetency.

Our Voice PAC has documented each cover up. If you haven’t seen our Benghazi series of videos, you should check it out and tell your friends.

Today, President Obama said that the only thing we know about the attacks is that “Americans died in Benghazi.” Eight months after the attack, that answer is unacceptable.

We’ve been documenting this Administration’s attempt at covering up the events in Benghazi since November, so click here to take a look back.
Sincerely,

Sharron Angle

Last October, the liberal web site Media Matters, published an article about these scams. Of course, they did so to also discredit the conservatives who rented out their mailing lists but they quoted a large portion of the original story published on Politico about the scam. It was there that I learned how so much of my contributions were wasted. Media Matters, being consistently one-sided has not published any stories about Barack Hussein Obama's fraudulent campaign finance deals.
Right-Wing Media Help "Scam PACs" Raise Money From Their Readers
Blog ››› ››› BEN DIMIERO & OLIVER WILLIS
Conservative media figures and outlets have sent out to their email lists numerous paid fundraising solicitations from "scam PACs" whose directors are apparently looking to cash in on the election season.
Politico reports today that a new "cottage industry" has sprung up during the presidential race in which vaguely-named super PACs have used major Republican national campaigns like Rep. Allen West's re-election bid in Florida to "raise money for themselves and build their email lists."
The groups have been sending out fundraising pitches promising to help West or defeat Obama in November, but "those chunks of $25 and $50 don't often find their way to any serious campaigns to beat Obama or boost West." The article quotes West's campaign attorney saying that the "vast majority of the groups that we know are engaged in this have done nothing for West."
As explained by Politico, "political operatives can create a PAC and corresponding website on the cheap, drop some cash to rent an email list and, voilĂ -- in come the small-dollar contributions from grass-roots Republicans." 
Conservative outlets like RedState and Townhall and media figures like Dick Morris and Mike Huckabee have been enabling these so-called "scam PACs" by renting out their email lists for these fundraising pitches.
Politico highlights Black America's Political Action Committee (BAMPAC), a group that has donated $10,000 to West's campaign but has nonetheless been sent a cease and desist letter by West. The group rented Dick Morris' email list as recently as last week. Prior to last week's email, Morris, who has used his email list to cash in on various political candidates and campaigns for years, has sent out numerous emails from PACs highlighted by Politico.
Morris has sent fundraising solicitations from BAMPAC with subject lines like "Save Allen West" on August 1August 10August 25September 19, and October 9.
Morris has also sent out fundraising emails from other groups mentioned in the Politico report, including Conservative Strike Force PAC, which has reportedly "given nothing to the Congressman." Morris rented his list to "Conservative Strike Force PAC" on August 17, September 5, and September 24
This morning, Morris again rented his list to Conservative Strike Force, which was seeking donations ostensibly to help Rep. Michele Bachmann. According to the email, "We absolutely must raise this $16,750 today!" 
The fundraising pitches come with a disclaimer from Morris that the messages are from a "paid sponsor."
Erick Erickson's RedState.com rented their list to BAMPAC on August 1August 23September 13September 28 and October 10.
All rented RedState emails include a disclaimer that the message is from a paid advertiser and that the message "reflects the opinions and representations of our advertiser alone." On the other hand, the disclaimer also notes that "From time to time we find special opportunities we believe you as a valued customer may want to see."
Conservative site Townhall.com rented their list out to BAMPAC on July 25 and August 16.
Fox host Mike Huckabee rented his list out to BAMPAC on October 8. Huckabee's email came with a disclaimer that the message is from a "paid sponsor" that does not "necessarily reflect my views."
And even though Congressman Allen West apparently lost his reelection bid - due in part that the Democrats managed to turn out more votes for his opponent in one county in Florida than there were registered voters, I am still receiving solicitations via postal and email from him or at least from people using his name. Last year I also sent several contributions to more than one group claiming to raise money for him, before I learned that many of them were scams. But due in part to the fact that Allen West conceded the election rather that fight the voter fraud, I lost all respect for him. And that is my personal consequence to the 2012 debacle.
