U.S. Marine’s stunning sign reminds us of the costs of Obama’s Bergdahl swap

A United States Marine did something that the phalanxes of America’s military officers are too timid to do.

This is the sign he held up before passing motorists about what his supposed commander in chief did (source):

Marine on Bergdahl swap

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post in Afghanistan and was held captive by the Taliban from June 2009 until May 31, 2014 when the Obama administration negotiated his release as part of a prisoner exchange for five high-level Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

On June 25, 2014, the U.S. Army stated that there is “no evidence” that Bergdahl had “engaged in any misconduct” during his years in captivity.

Nine months later, on March 25, 2015, the Army announced that Bergdahl had been charged with two counts under the Uniform Code of Military Justice: one count of “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty” and one count of “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.”

Here’s a reminder of what Obama gave up and what America sacrificed in exchange for this deserter.

Iranian defector says U.S. speaks for Iran at nuclear talks

Dr. Eowyn:

While it is true that Amir Motaghi is an Iranian defector and therefore has an axe to grind, given who he is — a former close aide to Iran’s president — and the gravity of his accusation — that the Obama administration is acting as Iran’s mouthpiece and advocate in the ongoing nuclear negotiation — Motaghi’s assertion should be reported and noted.

Motaghi’s accusation is also consistent with what we already know about Obama and his duplicity. See “US Intel Report Drops Iran From Terror Threat List.”

Originally posted on Consortium of Defense Analysts:

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad JavadAhmed Vahdat and Richard Spencer report for The Telegraph, March 27, 2015, that journalist Amir Hossein Motaghi, who is a close aide to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, defected while he was in Lausanne, Switzerland, covering the nuclear talks between Tehran and the West. The West’s negotiating team is comprised of the five permanent members of the UN security council and Germany.

Motaghi managed public relations for Rouhani during the latter’s election campaign for the presidency in 2013 by using social media successfully to promote the 66-year-old Rouhani to a youthful audience who overwhelmingly elected him to power.

One news website claimed Motaghi had been tipped off that he might be subject to arrest had he returned to Tehran.

Amir Hossein MotaghiAccording to Iranian news agencies, Motaghi quit his job at the Iran Student Correspondents Association (ISCA), then appeared on the opposition Irane Farda television channel based in London.

Democrats are upset by this sign

Overpasses For America posted this photo to their Facebook page, on March 13, 2015, of a sign somewhere in America which says:

We used to hunt Communists. Now we elect them.

commie sign

The sign has struck a nerve and has gone viral.

There are T-shirts with that message. Zazzle even offers a sheet of 20 “We used to hunt communists” stickers for only $5.50!

 

As American Overlook writes (via The Federalist Papers):

Just a few decades ago, America was anti-communist and fought valiantly in the name of freedom and democracy.

But when you look at the facts today, communism didn’t die with the U.S.S.R. Instead communists are alive and well in America, they’ve just changed their party affiliation to Democrat….

If you are not convinced by this statement, let’s take a look at President Obama’s actions.

  • Obama believes that if you’re a business owner, you didn’t create you business. Minimum wage workers and the government did.
  • Obama has aided Cuba’s communist government by returning spies, normalizing relations, and treating the communist leader there with more respect than he does members of the Republican Party here in America!
  • While growing up in Hawaii, Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a communist, who had pledged allegiance to the Soviet Union.

American communists

Think the “We used to hunt communists, now we elect them” sign is hyperbole?

Think again.

Did you know that in 2010, Communist Party USA sued the Democratic Party for theft of its (CPUSA) party platform?

Two years later, CPUSA and the Democrats kissed and made up, and in the 2012 elections that year, Communist Party USA actually endorsed Obama and the Democrats. It was also at the 2012 Communist, oops, Democratic National Convention that communists, excuse me, Democrats thrice rejected God.

Sunday Devotional: Palm Sunday

Mark 11:1-4, 7-10

When Jesus and his disciples drew near to Jerusalem,
to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives,
he sent two of his disciples and said to them,
“Go into the village opposite you,
and immediately on entering it,
you will find a colt tethered on which no one has ever sat.
Untie it and bring it here.
If anyone should say to you,
‘Why are you doing this?’ reply,
‘The Master has need of it
and will send it back here at once.’”
So they went off
and found a colt tethered at a gate outside on the street,
and they untied it….
So they brought the colt to Jesus
and put their cloaks over it.
And he sat on it.
Many people spread their cloaks on the road,
and others spread leafy branches
that they had cut from the fields.
Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out:
“Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! …
Hosanna in the highest!”

Palm SundayToday is Palm Sunday, the beginning of the holiest week in Christianity.

To borrow the words of FOTM’s friend, Martha Trowbridge, it is “the week that changed the world” — the week in which the Son of God willingly sacrificed Himself — was tortured, nailed to a cross and left to die — for our redemption.

If you go to Mass today, you would receive a long piece of palm leaf. This video gives very easy-to-follow instructions on how you can make a cross from your palm!

May the Peace and Love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

U.S. National Guardsman plotted military attack on Illinois armory in name of ISIS

Foxes are guarding the hen house in Obama’s America. Three days ago, on March 25, 2015, an Illinois National Guardsman and his cousin were arrested for planning a mass terror attack on a military facility in Joliet, Illinois. Hasan and Jonas Edmonds   The Chicago Tribune reports, March 27, 2015, that federal authorities say Hasan and Jonas Edmonds had been aspiring terrorists for months when they arrived at the Joliet Armory on Tuesday to scout out a brazen attack.

Hasan Edmonds, 22, a specialist with the Illinois National Guard who had trained at the Joliet Armory since 2011, talked with his cousin, 29-year-old Jonas Edmonds, and an accomplice about where the soldiers might be stationed inside, which rooms to avoid and the firepower that would be required, according to prosecutors. Hasan then went into the low brick building to pick up a military training schedule for Jonas, who was going to carry out the attack later wearing his cousin’s uniform and carrying AK-47s and grenades.

If all had gone according to plan, the body count could reach 150.

What the cousins didn’t know was that the accomplice was an undercover FBI informant. In fact, federal agents had been tracking them since late last year when Hasan exchanged Facebook messages with an agent posing as a militant about his desire to travel to the Middle East to join the Muslim jihadists Islamic State or ISIS.

The plot unraveled Wednesday evening as FBI agents arrested Hasan Edmonds , at Midway Airport as he prepared to board a flight to Detroit and on to Cairo to join terrorist fighters overseas. Two hours later, Jonas Edmonds was arrested at his home in an Aurora subdivision. Both are charged with conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, which carries up to 15 years in prison on conviction.

Meanwhile, news of the charges shocked neighbors and left some acquaintances scratching their heads. Felisha Allen, a onetime stepmother to Hasan Edwards, told the Tribune she was stunned to hear the allegations against the man whom she had raised. Describing the man who was plotting mass murder as “a good person” who was drawn to the unity of the Islamic faith, Allen said, “Something like this is hard to grasp. Is it a dream? I don’t even know what to believe.”

The cousins attended West Aurora High School, according to district spokesman Tony Martinez. Hasan Edmonds graduated in 2011. while Jonas Edmonds left school as a senior in 2004. That same year, Jonas Edmonds and two others were charged in suburban Atlanta in the armed robbery of a McDonald’s restaurant, court records show. He pleaded guilty in 2005, was sentenced to 15 years in prison and released in June 2010.

Court records show Hasan Edmonds’ father, Lieukennye Edmonds, 46, is serving a prison sentence for failing to register as a sex offender stemming from a 1990s conviction for the attempted sexual assault of an Aurora woman.

Lt. Col. Brad Leighton, a spokesman for the Illinois National Guard, said Hasan joined the guard in August 2011 and was a supply specialist — responsible for ordering uniforms and other equipment — with the Joliet-based 634th Brigade Support Battalion. He last drilled with the guard for a weekend this month.

Leighton said federal authorities recently informed the guard that Hasan was under investigation, leading them to take “discrete but concrete steps” to ensure he didn’t have access to equipment or computers and to give Hasan different duties.

According to the 33-page criminal complaint, the FBI began investigating Hasan Edmonds late last year when agents discovered that he and Jonas Edmonds allegedly had devised a plan for Hasan to travel overseas and use his military training to fight for Islamic State. In several online exchanges, Hasan Edmonds said that if he was unable to get to Syria he would stay in the U.S. and “fight and die here in the name of Allah.” In a message Jan. 30, he told the undercover agent that the best way to beat the U.S. and its Army was to “break their will” and that “With the U.S., no matter how many you kill they will keep coming unless the soldiers and the American public no longer have the will to fight. If we can break their spirits we will win.”

On Feb. 2, Hasan Edmonds contacted the undercover agent again and said his cousin was willing to carry out the attack on U.S. soil. “Honestly we would love to do something like the brother in Paris did,” Hasan Edmonds allegedly wrote in a reference to the January terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo magazine’s headquarters in France in which 16 people were slain.

Last month, Jonas Edmonds began communicating online with another undercover operative who was posing as someone who could help the cousins in their quest to join Islamic State. The cousins met with that purported accomplice Monday to discuss the planned attack on the Joliet military facility. Jonas told the operative that after his cousin left for the Middle East, he planned to purchase weapons, including AK-47 assault rifles and grenades, and then attack the base. Abdella Ahmad Tounisi & Mohammad Hamzah Khan The charges brought against the Edmondses are the latest in a string of terrorism-related cases stemming from Chicago’s suburbs, including:

  • In 2013, federal authorities charged Abdella Ahmad Tounisi, 18, with providing material support to terrorists after he allegedly pledged on a fake recruitment website — secretly operated by the FBI — to join terrorists in Syria. He was arrested at O’Hare International Airport as he was about to board a flight to Turkey. Tounisi, who was 18 at the time, has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.
  • Last year, Mohammed Hamzah Khan, 19, was charged with plotting to join Islamic State after he was arrested at O’Hare, where authorities alleged he and his two younger siblings were about to board a flight to Istanbul. Khan has pleaded not guilty, and his siblings, who are minors, were not charged.

Tweeter wants you to make this disgusting “lincoln” pic go viral

A nobody named Joe Bernstein (@basher) is on Twitter. Joe Bernstein On March 24, 2015, Bernstein flatulated this tweet to his 2,694 followers, of a fat naked man engaged in an obscene act with the head of a statue, with the message:

please, for the love of god, help me make #lincolning go viral

Bernstein tweet By #lincolning, Joe Bernstein is referring to the obscene act that the chubby naked guy was doing to what Bernstein thinks is the statue of President Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

In other words, Bernstein is applauding and encouraging the desecration of President Lincoln.

Sadly, Bernstein is mistaken. The statue isn’t that of Abraham Lincoln.

It’s the statue of Alexander Graham Bell in the front portico of the Bell Telephone Building of Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Lincoln Memorial & Alexander Graham Bell Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) is the Scottish-born scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone.

And so, both the tubby man and Joe Bernstein (assuming Bernstein isn’t the fat naked guy himself) are actually dissing the statue of the inventor of the telephone. facepalm

Bernstein calls himself a “reporter for BuzzFeed.”
