38 reasons why Obama is a Muslim

Obama in burkaH/t Barry Soetoro Esq.

The media, including “fair-and-balanced” Fox News, have been pummeling Donald Trump for the things he says. Now, he’s being pummeled for things he didn’t say, specifically for not saying that Obama is Christian.

Last Thursday (Sept. 17) night at a Trump rally in New Hampshire, a man said:

“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American — birth certificate, man … We have training camps growing, where they want to kill us. That’s my question. When can we get rid of them?”

Trump responded, “This is how we’re starting? [Audience laugh] We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re going to look at that and plenty of other things.”

For not defending Obama — which, of course, Trump is under no obligation to do — Trump is being trounced by the usual jackals.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz called Trump “vile” and “racist.” Hillary Clinton spit out this tweet: “Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out.” (Source)

That same night, on Fox News’ The [Megyn] Kelly File, Kelly showed a clip from the Trump rally to her studio audience.

A blonde woman in a sleeveless black dress questioned Obama’s background and religion (2:37 mark) and said he is a Muslim. Kelly quickly interrupted her, “No, he isn’t.” The woman said, “Well, we don’t know.” To which, Kelly barked, “Yes, we do.”

Then, a black man (wearing glasses) sitting behind the woman jumped in and said that it’s up to Obama to disprove the rumors that he’s a Muslim. The man said:

“…there are large numbers of Americans who have problems with both the philosophical and religious background of [this] president. That’s not the American people’s [but] the president’s job to engage them….”

At which point, Kelly rudely interrupted the man, drowning his voice with her own, indignantly insisting that Obama “is not a Muslim” and that this “was made a campaign issue back in 2008,” which John McCain had “put to rest.”

Megyn Kelly, Mouth of Sauron

To Megyn Kelly, the new Mouth of Obama:

In 3½ months, residents of 5 states must use a passport to board domestic flights

Here’s yet another way our feral [sic] government is using the “War on Terror” to restrict our freedom.

On May 11, 2005, exploiting Americans’ fear of terrorism after 9/11, Congress and the Bush administration enacted the Real I.D. Act in the name of national security. (See “National ID card for every American)

Real I.D. is an effective National ID card. All 50 constituent States in America are required to federalize their driver’s licenses by making them conform to national federal standards. Even non-drivers will be issued an ID card, thereby putting the lie to Real ID being just a driver’s license. That ID card contains all sorts of information on you which are entered into a national database and accessible and shared by the 50 state authorities. The information includes:

  • Information that’s on your driver’s license now: birthdate and address;
  • Your Social Security number;
  • Proof of citizenship or immigration status;
  • Reportedly, biometric security features and RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips.

Nevada's Real ID card

But if you live in New York, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Minnesota and New Hampshire, beginning January 1, 2016, that is in 3 months 12 days, you will need a passport to board a commercial airplane, even for domestic flights. All other states will still be able to use their state-issued driver’s licenses and IDs, at least for now.

John Vibes reports for AntiMedia, Sept. 18, 2015, that the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have declined to comment on why those 5 states have been singled out. Presumably, it is because those states’ driver’s licenses do not meet the Real ID requirements, although it is unclear just what those requirements actually are.

According to DHS’s guidelines on enforcement of the Real ID Act:

Secure driver’s licenses and identification documents are a vital component of our national security framework. The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, enacted the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the Federal Government ‘set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.’ The Act established minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for certain purposes driver’s licenses and identification cards from states not meeting the Act’s minimum standards.  The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, no sooner than 2016, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.

The Real ID act has been controversial since its initial proposal over ten years ago and is seen by many as a massive violation of privacy. One of the primary reasons it has taken the government so long to roll this program out is because the program is wildly unpopular and creates heavy backlash every time it appears in the news.


Obama to let in 10,000 Syrian refugees despite no way of identifying terrorists

Dr. Eowyn:

Obama did say when he was first elected in 2008 that he meant to “fundamentally transform” America.

The millions who voted, twice, to send this man to the White House will have to answer to their conscience for what they inflicted on America and the world.

Originally posted on Consortium of Defense Analysts:

Obama’s policy and conduct in the Middle East are nothing but a disaster.

The disaster began with his celebration of the so-called Arab Spring that brought the radical Muslim Brotherhood (MB) into power in Egypt and replaced the Khadaffi regime with chaos in Libya.

Then the premature withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq brought instead a new lethal threat of ISIS that now, as the Islamic State, controls a broad swath across Iraq and Syria. (See Blowback: ISIS leaders are former officers of Saddam Hussein’s army”)

Meanwhile, Obama is determined to do the same to Syria by arming and training so-called rebels who are every bit as extreme as the MB and ISIS, to topple the Assad government, under which Syrian Christians and Muslims have lived in peace. See:

Pentagon/FBI investigate Ashley Madison hack, in fear of blackmail of government subscribers to adultery site

Daily Mail reports that on Aug. 20, 2015, the Impact Team hackers released a second, even bigger, 20GB cache of files exposing the 37 millions subscribers of the adultery website Ashley Madison (AM), according to Vice.

The Pentagon and the FBI may investigate the data leak, fearing that government AM subscribers may be blackmailed.

The new documents were dumped with a taunting message to the adultery website’s founder, millionaire CEO Noel Biderman: “Hey Noel, you can admit it’s real now.”

Noel Biderman

The Associated Press traced many of the accounts exposed by hackers back to federal workers and reviewed their credit-card transactions to identify them. Up to 15,000 names among the raw data are listed from email addresses with the domain names .mil or .gov — the official addresses of U.S government and military employees, including:

  • At least two assistant U.S. attorneys.
  • An information technology administrator in the Executive Office of the President.
  • A division chief, an investigator and a trial attorney in the Department of Justice. Some  DOJ employees appeared to use pre-paid credit cards to help preserve their anonymity but connected to the service from their office computers.
  • A government hacker and another employee who indicated he worked on a counter-terrorism response team at the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Workers in other Obama administration agencies, including the departments of State, Defense, Energy, Treasury, and Transportation.
  • Workers in the House and Senate.
  • Louisiana GOP Executive Director Jason Doré, who claimed he used the site for “opposition research,” but did not reveal on whose behalf he had accessed the site. Doré told that an account with his name and credit card information was used by his law firm, Doré Jeansonne. He said, “As the state’s leading opposition research firm, our law office routinely searches public records, online databases and websites of all types to provide clients with comprehensive reports. Our utilization of this site was for standard opposition research. Unfortunately, it ended up being a waste of money and time.”

Defense Secretary Ash Carter confirmed the Pentagon was looking into the list of people who used military email addresses. Adultery can be a criminal offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Many federal customers appeared to use non-government email addresses with handles such as ‘sexlessmarriage’, ‘soontobesingle’ or ‘latinlovers’.

In May, the Washington Post reported that D.C. had the highest rate of membership on Ashley Madison for the third year running and Capitol Hill was the neighborhood with the highest number of new recruits.

But according to the graphic below, São Paulo, Brazil, leads the world’s cities in the number of AM subscribers:

Ashley Madison accounts per city

Here are some other Ashley Madison subscribers from big institutions in addition to U.S. government workers:

  • Sony, Boeing and the United Nations are among those institutions whose domain names appear in the long lists of alleged users.
  • Staff of big banks also make regular appearances. Marketwatch counted up bank domain names to reveal 175 from Wells Fargo, 76 from Bank of America, 73 from Deutsche Bank, 51 from Citigroup, 45 from Goldman Sachs, 28 from PNC Bank, 15 at U.S. Bancorp, 14 at Bank of New York Mellon, 9 at J.P. Morgan Chase and 4 at Capital One.
  • At least 30 subscribers from the University of Texas.
  • The French leak monitoring firm CybelAngel said it counted 1,200 email addresses in the data dump with the .sa suffix, suggesting users were connected to Saudi Arabia, where adultery is punishable by death.

world map of Ashley Madison subscribers

So far, the most famous name to be exposed as an AM subscriber is 27-year-old Josh Duggar of the pious Duggar family, whose “19 Kids and Counting” reality TV show recently was canceled by TLC because a police report revealed that when he was 15, Josh had molested 5 girls, including his own sisters. He was never charged with a crime for the incidents as by the time police learned of the offenses the statue of limitations had passed, and his parents did not notify authorities after learning about their son’s actions.

Josh Duggar

Josh owned not just one, but owned several AM accounts. He indicated he was looking for “conventional sex, experimenting with sex toys, one-night stands, sharing fantasies, sex talk” and more. His profile said he was looking for “naughty girl, aggressive/take charge girl, high sex drive and creative and adventurous.”

According to Gawker, “Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary – a home that was consistently on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child – paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015.” A second Josh Duggar account was created in July 2013 “that was linked to his home in Oxon Hill, Maryland.”

Josh lived at the Maryland residence with his wife and children while working as a family values lobbyist for the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., which promotes marriage and family values and opposes abortion, divorce and pornography.

Josh posted a public apology, admitting being unfaithful to his wife and living a double life, saying: “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him. I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust. The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings. As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example. I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.”

Blah, blah, blah.

Government workers contacted by the AP were similarly contrite.

A DOJ investigator said, “I was doing some things I shouldn’t have been doing.” Asked about the threat of blackmail, the investigator said if prompted he would reveal his actions to his family and employer to prevent it because “I’ve worked too hard all my life to be a victim of blackmail.”

This second cache was also dumped on the dark web, which requires specific software for access, which means the information cannot be accessed by regular search engines. But other non-dark web sites have posted the hacked information. Several searchable databases of names, emails and sexual fantasies linked to the first data leak had to shut down within minutes of going live because they could not cope with demand from suspicious spouses.

Meanwhile, the hackers claim they have naked pictures of thousands of AM members, and sexually explicit chats between members.

One of the documents in the second cache of hacked Ashley Madison data shows the adultery website was aware of the privacy dangers and even discussed a potential security breach. A file called “Areas of concern – customer data.docx” shows that an AM worker had flagged potential hacking hazards.

Expect a torrent of lawsuits against Ashley Madison. Hopefully, Noel Biderman will be bankrupted and go out of business.

Illegal immigrant ordered freed by feds now suspected of murder in Ohio


Fox News: An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff’s deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, was arrested Monday after a shootout with police following a crime spree police say began with the attempted rape of a girl in a park in Painesville, about 30 miles northeast of Cleveland. He later shot a woman in front of her children and murdered a 60-year-old woman in nearby Concord Township, according to police. While Razo is being held on $10 million bond, authorities are trying to explain why he was allowed to remain in the U.S. illegally after local authorities questioned him just three weeks ago.

“I have somebody who we don’t know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder,” Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti thundered at Razo’s arraignment, noting the suspect has no green card, birth certificate or driver’s license.  “I can’t set a bond high enough,” he continued. “How in the hell do I even know it’s him?”

Cicconetti later told Fox News he did not understand how federal authorities could have ordered Razo released on July 7 when local deputies questioned him and contacted Border Protection officials, given that no one could even verify his identity.

“If you are stopped, at that point, whether it be by law enforcement or you make your first court appearance, at that point we have to have some kind of identifier on him,” he said.

Deputies who questioned Razo say Border Protection officials told them Razo is from Mexico and in the U.S. illegally, but said they would not pick him up for deportation. Lake County Sheriff Dan Dunlap said at a news conference that deputies released Razo because he hadn’t committed a crime at that point.

A Border Protection spokesman did not return telephone messages seeking comment. A spokesman for U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement said in an email that ICE was closely monitoring the case. The email identified Razo as Juan Emmanuel Razo-Ramirez.

A detective said during the arraignment that Razo has confessed to the deadly, one-day crime spree in the quiet Lake Erie town. Police began seeking Razo late Monday morning after the girl described him to police and said he had tried to rape her. Hours later, he allegedly shot a 40-year-old woman in the arm as she walked with her two children along a bike path and an hour after that, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.

Victim Margaret Kostelnik

Victim Margaret Kostelnik

The Lake County coroner said Kostelnik, who was an assistant to the mayor in nearby Willoughby, was shot multiple times. “People always  say, ‘Oh, she’s the nicest person in the world,’” Willoughby Mayor David Anderson told “But Margaret Kostelnik is the nicest person you could ever meet.”

Anderson said he worked with Kostelnik for the 24 years he served as mayor and that her family is deeply entrenched in the 23,000-person community. Her husband has worked as the town’s cemetery sexton for the past 25 years. “She genuinely cared,” Anderson said.

A public defender entered a not guilty plea for Razo on Tuesday.

Tension between local and federal law enforcement agencies over how to handle illegal immigrants was brought to the forefront after the killing of Kathryn Steinle July 1 on a San Francisco pier. The 32-year-old was allegedly shot by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez who had been deported five times and had a felony record. 

Lopez-Sanchez has said he came to San Francisco because he knew local police would not turn him over for deportation because of the city’s sanctuary policy, which has caused Republicans to blame these policies adopted by liberal enclaves nationwide.

Lopez-Sanchez was freed in March on an old marijuana charge even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement had filed a detainer request with San Francisco law enforcement. The city’s sheriff’s department was criticized for releasing Lopez-Sanchez and not notifying federal immigration authorities.

Lopez-Sanchez pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and weapons charges in the case. His bail was set at $5 million, which means he will stay in jail until the murder trial, where he faces a possible sentence of life imprisonment.

Leader of U.S. veterans coalition renews Patrick Henry’s call to liberty

I am an American citizen

Below is the Memorial Day speech delivered by my friend John J. Molloy, Chairman of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition, at the Ride For Freedom Rally (of biker veterans) in Rainelle, West Virginia, on May 23, 2015.

John Molloy

Brothers & Sisters,

Though it is customary over the Memorial Day weekend to render flowery speeches about our departed veterans who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, this will not be one of them.

This year marks the 240th anniversary of the commencement of the Battle of Lexington (though some may argue that the Revolution began at the Battle of Point Pleasant, here in West Virginia). This year is also the 70th anniversary of the defeat of the Nazis and Tojo in World War II. Each event a high point in our nation’s history. However, it also marks a sad anniversary, the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese, when the lives and sacrifices of American and allied South Vietnamese soldiers were disgracefully discarded by cowardly politicians.

Since that fateful day in April 1975, it appears that our armed forces have rarely been permitted to fight to win. Then as now, ridiculous rules of engagement do not permit our fighters to engage the enemy, even when being shot at, without first getting authorization.  Well, new flash! The purpose of our armed forces is supposed to be ‘kill people and break things’. Hearts and minds are won though victory and fear. We should be generous in victory, but not before.

The fact that our political leaders have abrogated all our past sacrifices is obvious.

The National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition was established to resolve those issues important to those of us who served in, as well as those who support veterans of Vietnam, the First Gulf War and all of America’s subsequent wars. The issues include:

  • Prisoners of war (POW) and missing in action (MIA)
  • Agent Orange
  • Gulf War illness
  • Homeless veterans
  • Veterans employment/unemployment
  • Veterans health care/V.A. hospitals

However, efforts to resolve these issues are meaningless if Americans lose their freedom. Upon entering our nation’s armed forces, we swore to defend the United States of America from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Without freedom, we can resolve nothing.

Consequently, it is the primary objective of the Coalition — and the 70 veterans organizations and the over quarter of a million veterans it represents — to support those measures that will ensure the freedom, safety and security of the United States of America, which this administration is not ensuring.

Unlike most veterans organizations, the Coalition is not a veterans service organization. It is a political/educational organization that evaluates and endorses candidates for political office, by determining if they are capable and willing to not only support those issues of concern to veterans, but most importantly, abide by their oath of office should they be elected. Unfortunately, those who fail to abide by their oath outnumber those whom the Coalition has endorsed, and even some who the Coalition has endorsed have succumbed to the dictates of this administration and congressional leadership.

It is because of this administration’s sympathy toward those who would destroy us politically, economically and militarily, as well as the weakness and complicity of many senators and representatives, that America is now at great risk. America is besieged on all sides whether by racial-ethnic unrest, illegal immigration, Islamic terror, and even an Ebola outbreak. But this administration and the liars who support it expect us to believe that our greatest problem is climate change. They think us to be idiots and treat us accordingly. I think that I can safely assure you that this cannot continue without a reckoning. And I suspect that this administration wants it to occur so that it will be provoked into subduing us.

One only needs to look at some of our leaders to see where America is headed. Obama has failed to subdue ISIS, uses executive action to provide amnesty to illegal aliens, refers to those killed by Muslim terrorists at Benghazi as “bumps in the road,” and refers to the Fort Hood massacre as workplace terror.

Well, who are his advisors and senior cabinet members?

  • Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), who praises the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Valerie Jarrett, White House senior advisor, an Iranian Muslim who treats our senior military leaders with disdain.
  • John Brennan, CIA chief, who is a Muslim.
  • Gen Clapper, Director of National Security, who is a moron.
  • Mohamed Elibiary, senior member of the DHS Security Advisory Council, who is an advocate of Hamas.
  • Eric Holder, U.S. attorney general (2009-2015), who wanted to take away our second amendment rights and supports the rioters who defy our police.
  • Loretta Lynch, Holder’s successor who wants to nationalize our police forces.
  • Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s advisor, whose father and brother are senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Al Sharpton, the race baiter and agitator who defends criminals against legitimate law enforcement.

So what can we do?

Here, I must take the liberty of referring to and paraphrasing a famous speech made in the Spring of 1775, the eve of the American War for Independence.

“They tell us, sir, that we are weak, unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be next week or next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed and when members of the FEMA or DHS or the “federal protective agency” (formerly, the police) invade every house?

Shall we gather strength by irresolution or inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope until our enemies have bound us hand and foot?

We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means by which God has placed in our power. Millions of people, armed in the holy cause of Liberty, in such a country as we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battle with us.

This battle is not for the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, and the brave. Though in 2016 an election by peaceful means is desirable, there is that possibility that it may not be achievable, in which case there will be no retreat but submission or slavery.

Our chains are forged and heard on the streets of Washington, D.C. If war is inevitable to preserve our freedom, then let it come!

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? I wonder, at times, whether we are not already there.”


Now friends, it may soon be up to us to prevent those freedoms which were defended by our forefathers whom we memorialize this weekend, from being lost.

These freedoms must be passed on to our descendants. However, they must not take these freedoms for granted. They must be willing to join our efforts.

Though many hope that the presidential election of 2016 will resolve America’s problems, of that I would not be too confident.

Last year, we gave a vote of no confidence to Obama when we obtained Republican majority in the Senate and retained the Republican majority in the House. Unfortunately, the leadership of those whom we elected are weak and, I daresay, treacherous. In addition, with the possibility of illegals casting ballots and the continuation of election fraud, we would be foolish to place confidence in an election that may truly be rigged or be a shallow or empty victory.

In either case whether we like it or not, hope rings hollow and achieves nothing. If ISIS or rioters were to attack our homeland, if our government attempts to disarm us, we cannot defeat them with hope. Unfortunately, based on what appears to be on the national horizon, the ultimate solution may be Bullets rather than Ballots.

As Patrick Henry said so admirably at the end of his speech that Spring day 240 years ago:

Give me Liberty or Give me Death!!!!

Patrick Henry
