Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons

4-Star Admiral Slams Obama: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated All Of Our National Security Agencies

Published on Jan 28, 2015

During a press conference on how to combat radical Islamic extremism, Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet, stated that under the leadership of Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated all of the National Security Agencies of the United States. Furthermore, Lyons said that Obama is deliberately unilaterally disarming the military and spoke to the need for the new GOP controlled congress and Military leaders to stand up to the administration and uphold their oaths.


People of Walmart: The Very Angry Edition

There’s a website called peopleofwalmart.com, to which readers can send — and get published — candid photos they’ve taken of odd-looking shoppers in various Wal-Marts across the U.S.

Periodically I go on the website to cull pictures for my “People of Walmart” posts on FOTM (scroll down to bottom of this post for our collection). I do them as a way to chronicle how Americans have lost our sense of self-respect and propriety. Too many of us don’t make even a minimum effort at pulling ourselves together before we go out of our homes, but instead parade our slovenly appearances for the world to see.

In today’s “People of Walmart” are pics of Americans who are roiling with a diffuse, universal anger that can barely be contained, but finds expression in obscene messages in their clothing. It is disturbing, to say the least, that there are people walking among us who have so much rage.

Language Warning!

But then we have a president who is himself so angry that he seeks every occasion to surreptitiously give us the finger.

Obama gives America the finger

It is that juvenile behavior — and more — which prompted psychologists like Dr. Gina Loudon to observe that Obama borders on the insane. Beginning at the 2:55 mark in her interview on Fox News’ Lou Dobbs, Dr. Loudon said:

“I am very, very concerned about the mental stability of this President at this point. Some of his behavior seems irrational to me. It seems beyond that of just a typical narcissistic, arrogant, sort of, ‘I’m a leader of a big country and I feel tyrannical at the moment’ kind of attitude. It really seems to me like this President is demonstrating behavior that is not only anti-American, but irrational and erratic and perhaps not exactly what we might want to deem sane.”

More than being “irrational and erratic,” in an essay published nearly a year ago, Dr. Loudon had warned that Obama exhibits attributes of psychopathy — those of audacity, scapegoating or blaming other, self-pity, a mysterious and shady past, socially charming, and lack of remorse.

To Loudon’s list we must add another defining trait of psychopaths — lack of empathy. See “Obama went to bed after being told about Benghazi attack as it was happening.”

Destruction of Evidence: Hillary Clinton deleted half of emails from personal account used to conduct business as secretary of state

Hillary Clinton what difference does it make

In the interest of government accountability and transparency, all communications of U.S. officials during their tenure in office should be recorded and made available for public scrutiny, except classified records. To facilitate that record keeping, government officials are supposed to use a government email account for their electronic correspondence.

The U.S. secretary of state is no exception to that rule.

But Hillary Rodham Clinton not only used a personal email account (@clintonemail.com) to conduct business as secretary of state, now she’s admitted that half of those emails have been deleted!

Clinton claims that the erased emails were about private matters, like yoga routines, her daughter’s wedding and her mother’s funeral. (New York Times)

Yeah, right.

The American people would not even have known of Secretary of State Clinton’s personal email account were it not for Judicial Watch (JW), the D.C.-based nonpartisan citizens watchdog group. JW made the discovery when it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit more than a month ago demanding details of Clinton’s response to the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

On Feb. 2, 2015, government lawyers handling the case admitted that “In the course of preparing additional information to provide to Plaintiff [JW] for purposes of settlement discussions, Defendant has discovered that additional searches for documents potentially responsive to the FOIA must be conducted.”

Clinton’s allies moved to douse the controversy by pointing to similar practices by her predecessors and to what her supporters say were murky government rules at the time. But all signs are pointing toward a protracted legal morass as advocacy groups, the courts and Congress try to determine whether Clinton’s practice denied them access to critical information during her four years in the Obama Cabinet and thereafter.

Clinton aides and State Department officials argued that the impact of her use of personal email on the government’s permanent files was limited because she turned over 55,000 pages of the emails in December at the department’s request. They also contend that most of Clinton’s work-related emails were preserved on work accounts used by other officials.

However, those explanations overlook or minimize a series of problems caused by the personal email arrangement.

One is that Clinton’s assistants, specifically Huma Abedin, Hillary’s former aide and wife to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Wiener (D-NY), also used a personal email address on the Clinton email domain: huma@clintonemail.com. (American Thinker)

My friend John Molloy sent this email to Huma. LOL

Dear Mrs. Weiner,

I just had an opportunity to speak with the wife of Glenn Doherty to let her know how much I appreciated that at Benghazi he and Tyrone Woods sent many Muslim Brotherhood supporters to meet Allah.

Regards to Anthony.

Another problem is that searches of Clinton’s office files done for Congress, FOIA requests, or for litigation may not have captured relevant emails if the recipient was outside Clinton’s immediate office and that account wasn’t part of the search. Work-related emails that went to parties outside the State Department or to aides’ personal accounts also would have been missed in these searches.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, reacted angrily to word that Clinton’s own emails may have escaped scrutiny in the years of litigation the organization has pursued against the State Department over Benghazi and other issues: “It’s a reckless approach to hiding material from the public. We have dozens of FOIA requests and well over a dozen federal lawsuits in which this information is directly relevant. The government has never told us about this. In fact, in some cases they told us they looked through [Clinton’s] office and there was nothing to be found.”

Fitton said his group is preparing to make legal moves to be certain that its demands for information were properly handled and to examine assurances the State Department gave to judges in the group’s lawsuits. “There are a bunch of judges they’re messing with in the federal courts right now,” he said. “Our lawyers are analyzing all of this, and we’ll be taking appropriate steps to insure that records are secured and searched.”

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf — the same Marie Harf who said what the murderous Islamic State needs are “job opportunities” — arrogantly declared that while the newly provided records will be searched in response to future FOIA requests, there’s no plan to review the accuracy of what the government told the courts or requesters over the past six years. “That’s my understanding, that that will not be happening,” she said. “All of them will now be searched going forward.”

One step Clinton could take to try to defuse the controversy would be to release the records she handed over to State in December. But that would highlight the fact that Clinton’s own aides and lawyers would determine which records were work-related. At a daily State briefing a week ago, Harf faced repeated questions from journalists about why the department was taking Clinton’s word about which emails were official. One journalist even quoted President Ronald Reagan’s famous saying about the Soviets, “Trust but verify.”

Two former State Department officials said that they were surprised that archival questions about Clinton’s work-related emails were not addressed either when she assumed the job in 2009 or when she left in 2013. “I would have expected a secretary of state would, sometime before he or she left office or soon thereafter, make a transfer of email records,” said former National Archives litigation director Jason Baron. (ZeroHedge)

Think about this for a minute:

This is how Hillary Clinton behaved as secretary of state. Imagine how lawless she’ll be as president.

Hillary Clinton would be 69 if she were to become president in January 2017, making her the second oldest to be inaugurated and less than a year younger than Ronald Reagan when he took office. But Americans generally think she’s younger than her actual age, especially voters under age 30 – most of whom say she’s in her 50s or 40s.

To those millions of low-information delusional Americans, here’s a time-lapse video showing how old Hillary really is!

Gird your loins: Hillary Clinton May Enter 2016 Race Sooner Than Expected

hillary

DailyCaller: Come April, Hillary Clinton may officially be a candidate again.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Hillary Clinton and “her close advisers are telling Democratic donors she will enter the presidential race sooner than expected, likely in April, a move that would allay uncertainties within her party and allow her to rev up fundraising.”

“Jumping in sooner would help the Democratic field take shape, reassuring party leaders and donors that the former first lady, senator and secretary of state is running,” the Journal explained. “A super PAC loyal to Mrs. Clinton has faced hesitation from donors who don’t want to make big pledges until she is a candidate.”

The news comes as the Republican presidential primary is heating up, with potential candidates wooing donors and giving speeches to activists in early nominating states. Many of these candidates appeared at CPAC — the Conservative Political Action Conference — last week.

Meanwhile, Clinton’s inevitability as the Democratic nominee still remains threatened by progressives like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is being pressured to run as an alternative to the former secretary of state.

Most early polling shows Clinton leading potential Republican nominees in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups in swing states, partly due to her high name recognition as former first lady and secretary of state. But political observers expect her numbers to go down once she becomes a candidate and has to weigh in on the politics of the day.

Wonder if the state run media will address these issues with Hill?

President Lucifer Sides With Iran

OBAMA THREATENED TO SHOOT DOWN ISRAELI JETS IF THEY ATTACKED IRANIAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM

An explosive report in a Kuwaiti newspaper claims that President Obama thwarted an Israeli plan to attack Iran’s nuclear weapons program in 2014 by threatening to order American military forces to shoot down the Israeli jets…

This article is worth your time. If you had any doubts that Obama is one of the chief leaders of radical islamic terrorists, this will put those doubts to rest. 

Stop being nice to America-destroying Left

Conservatives, including me, like to blame Obama for everything that’s wrong with America.

But the truth is he wouldn’t be in the White House, ignoring and bypassing Congress by signing more executive orders and memoranda than any U.S. president in history:

  • without MILLIONS of Americans voting him into power, twice!
  • without the willful complicity of the establishment media
  • without the gutless spineless Republicans, and
  • without the approval of MILLIONS of Americans (50% of adults, according to Gallup Poll, still!), despite or because of everything he’s done.

To quote 18th century French diplomat Count Joseph Marie Maistre (1763-1821), “Every nation has the government it deserves.”

In the following op/ed by Michael Cummings for Clash Daily, he perfectly articulates my sentiments.

Tired of Losing: No More ‘Benefit of the Doubt’, Decorum for America-Destroying Leftists

Ben Shapiro, attorney, author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America, and Brietbart.com editor-at-large, said in a recent column:

“If someone calls you a racist, and you respond by stating that they are a reasonable human being with policy differences, you grant their premise: A reasonable person has called you a racist, which means it is reasonable to call you racist. You lose.”

I am tired of losing.

I am tired of giving people on the Left the benefit of the doubt. Is it not clear they do not mean well? Is it not clear they don’t want the same things as we? Is it not clear they do not wish to arrive at the same destination via a different path? These people are not on our side, and were I in Congress I would not call any member of the opposition party “My honorable friend” or “esteemed colleague.” Decorum be damned.

In the last week we’ve seen former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani get criticized on every news show over his statement that he didn’t think Barack Obama loves America. True Americans cheered as Giuliani didn’t back down when challenged over the days that followed. Even Scott Walker, when asked about what Rudy said of Obama, essentially said, “Ask Obama.” Well done, both of you.

We need more of this, more of calling these people out.

And why shouldn’t we? Barack Obama has done more damage to this country than any president or elected official. We need to tell the truth.

  • He and his perpetually angry wife criticized our country during the 2008 campaign.
  • He began his administration with a trip around the world to apologize for every wrongdoing he believes America has committed.
  • He destroyed the best health care system in the world.
  • He pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving a gaping hole the Islamic State is only happy to fill with the blood and body parts of Jews, Christians, and not-the-right-kind-of-Muslims.
  • He traded five, high value terrorists for a proven Army deserter, some of whose fellow soldiers died looking for him.
  • He has spent more than all other presidents combined.
  • He vetoed a bipartisan bill that would allow the building of the Keystone XL Pipeline, bringing more energy independence and jobs to our nation.
  • He pushed the FCC to treat the Internet as a public utility, paving the way not just for speed but content restriction.
  • He granted de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, and set processes in place to provide them tax credits and Social Security.

We know how long this list could get.

Note: Cummings left out Obama abandoning 4 Americans to die in Benghazi; the IRS singling out conservatives for extra scrutiny; the NSA spying on our every email, phonecall, and credit transaction; targeting right-wing Americans as extremist terrorists; promoting sodomy as U.S. foreign policy; imposing gun control via banning bullets by executive action; and much much more. See our “The Obama Chronicles” page.

In every facet of our lives, Barack Obama and people like him on the Left want to control us — never asking if we want to be controlled nor checking with the Constitution on the legality of their actions. Free enterprise, health care, freedom of religion, free Internet, strong military — they destroy everything they touch. In protecting America or our allies from danger, these people have made it clear they want chaos to reign.

I don’t know what else to say other than this: I hate Barack Obama. You can’t call me racist because I hate Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, too. You can’t call me sexist because I hate Harry Reid and Dick Durbin. You can’t call me anti-pervert because I hate Joe Biden.

Do I hate these people personally? No. How could I? I know none of them. But I hate anyone who becomes part of the 1% off the freedoms of the best country this world will ever know, but with every breath they take seek to fundamentally transform it.

Do I hate these people more than the Islamic State? No, but I hold them responsible for the bloodshed painting the entire Middle East.

My hatred is bipartisan. You would like to think that since, for the moment, we still have elections, we could vote these people out and put in place principled and courageous leaders who will keep their multiple and fervent promises to stop Obama. And in 2010 and 2014 we set decades old records in political power shifting by handing Republicans the keys to Congress. Since then, Republicans have taken impeachment and funding (shutdowns) off the table. Please tell me where our negotiating power resides other than at the bottom of the pit in the movie “300.” Save for a few, patriotic stalwarts, I hate the Republicans too.

But I love God, Jesus, and the American people, and with faith in all of these I remain optimistic that while we’re in a really dark part of history, we will see the light.

New VA secretary Robert McDonald lied about being in Special Forces

“The lie is the distinguishing feature of evil, because of its self-devouring commitment to what is not: it is an inner vacuity.” -Anthony Esolen

How did deception and lying become so facile and common place in high places?

We have a President who lies habitually and can’t seem to tell lies from truth. Writing for the New York Post on Sept. 13, 2014, author Jack Cashill said he’s counted 75 significant lies since Obama’s campaign for president began, excluding the casual fibs and hyperbole Obama “spouts seemingly every day.” Here are some big whoppers:

“If you like your health insurance, you can keep your insurance.”

“After Obamacare, your insurance premiums will go down.”

Jon Gruber never worked for me.”

“We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time.” — about the Benghazi attack of Sept. 11, 2011.

“Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”

We also have a network news anchor Brian Williams, who makes an annual salary of $10 million that most Americans can only dream of, repeating a lie for 12 years that he was in a helicopter that was shot down by an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) in Iraq in 2003.

And now we have another public figure, the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald who, like Brian Williams, is a very successful man and, leaving aside the immorality of lying, doesn’t need to lie to burnish his credentials.

On the evening of Jan. 30, 2015, McDonald joined some volunteers who were out in the mean streets of Los Angeles counting the number of homeless veterans — all captured on video by CBS News.

McDonald came upon a black homeless vet.

Robert McDonald and homeless vet, L.A., Jan. 30, 2015

The exchange between McDonald and the homeless vet begins at the 1:07 mark in the CBS news video (click here):

McDonald: Do you happen to be a veteran, sir?

Vet: [indecipherable]

McDonald: Really? Army? Navy? Air Force?

Vet: Army

McDonald: What year?

Vet: Special Forces

McDonald: Special Forces! What years? I was in Special Forces!

The exchange was broadcast in a Jan. 30 CBS News story about the VA’s efforts to find and house homeless veterans.

Wikipedia says Robert McDonald, 61, a retired Chairman, President, and CEO of Procter & Gamble, had graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering. After graduation, he served in the U.S. Army for 5 years, primarily in the 82nd Airborne Division, attaining the rank of Captain.

On February 23, 2015, 24 days after McDonald’s encounter with the homeless Special Forces vet, The Huffington Post published an article by David Wood stating that McDonald “wrongly claimed in a videotaped comment earlier this year that he served in the Army’s elite special forces.”

Wood pointed out that:

U.S. special operations forces (SOF) are composed of exhaustively trained and highly capable troops from each military service, including the Army Rangers, Delta Force, Navy SEALs and Army Special Forces (also known as the Green Berets) — but not the 82nd Airborne. […]

In fact, McDonald never served in special forces. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1975, completed Army Ranger training and took courses in jungle, arctic and desert warfare. He qualified as a senior parachutist and airborne jumpmaster, and was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division until he resigned his commission in 1980. While he earned a Ranger tab designating him as a graduate of Ranger School, he never served in a Ranger battalion or any other special operations unit.

It was only when Huffington Post contacted McDonald to explain himself did this cabinet-level secretary in the Obama administration admit he had “misspoken”:

“I have no excuse,” McDonald told The Huffington Post, when contacted to explain his claim. “I was not in special forces.” […]

McDonald told The Huffington Post that he “wanted to clear up the confusion I probably created — I did create” in the exchange with the homeless man in L.A. Saying he was in special forces, McDonald said, “is not right. I was not in special forces. What I said was wrong.”

McDonald said he has many friends in the special forces community “and I have great respect for special forces.” But, he added, “as I thought about this later I knew this [claim] was wrong.”

When the homeless veteran claimed to have served in special forces, McDonald said, “I reacted spontaneously and I reacted wrongly, [with] no intent in any way to describe my record any different than it is.”

Ironically, McDonald was selected by Obama to replace Eric Shinseki, the retired Army general who resigned in disgrace last May following reports of widespread corruption and malfeasance within the VA.
