President and Commander In Chief Barack Obama missed 6 of 10 daily intelligence briefings

Dr. Eowyn:

He doesn’t listen to the counsel of military leaders. His policies (or non-policies) have alienated allies across the globe and fostered the rise of radical Muslims in Egypt, Libya, and Iraq. He turns to Twitter for foreign policy ideas. Now comes a meticulous report that he doesn’t even attend his daily presidential intelligence briefings.

Is it any wonder, then, why our military distrusts Obama, and why America’s foreign policy is in such disarray?

I just pray that America and the world survive this POS.

The President of the United States, the most powerful person in the world, receives live, in-person Presidential Daily Briefs (PDB) that allow the Commander-in-Chief the chance for critical followup, feedback, questions, and the challenging of flawed intelligence assumptions.

An alarming report by the Governmental Accountability Institute (GAI) says that, in the 2,079 days (1/20/2009 thru’ 9/29/2014) since he became President and Commander-In-Chief, Barack Obama has attended a total of only 875 PDBs for an overall 42.09% attendance rate.

That means he missed 57.91% or 6 out of every 10 of his daily intelligence briefings.

Even worse, his attendance rate has worsened in his second term (41.26% attendance rate) as president than in his first term (42.43% attendance rate).

Here’s the ad’s full text:

America… It’s Time to Wake Up and Smell the Jihadi

America has switched sides in the War on Terror under President Obama…”

- Former CIA operations officer Clare Lopez

If a friend asked you to jump in their car to go pick up some Dairy Queen, you might eagerly take them up on it.

If the same friend asked you to jump in their car to go knock over a liquor store, you wouldn’t be as eager to go along for the ride.

Right now, every American is being taken for a ride—and if we don’t wake up to that fact, we’ll be just as responsible as the passenger going on the liquor store heist.

As hard as it may be to believe, America has been deceived on a massive scale by our president, Barack Hussein Obama.

His loyalties and political objectives are not what we were sold in 2008 and 2012.

Rather than combating terrorism at home and abroad, President Obama has intentionally built up terrorist groups. In violation of international law, he was instrumental in the fall of governments in Egypt and Libya, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands. In doing so, he also destabilized the entire Middle East. He has compromised America’s entire antiterrorist infrastructure, and placed anti-American Islamist operatives in sensitive government positions.

Suspicions Run Deep in Iraq That C.I.A. and the Islamic State Are United…”

- the New York Times

According to the Jordanian government, Middle Eastern and European press organizations, the Obama administration actually funded and trained members of the terrorist group ISIS, which now threatens several nations in the Middle East, as well as the American homeland.

Can a leopard ever really change its spots? You can take the boy out of the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the boy.

Likewise, you can take the boy out of Indonesia, but you can’t take the Sunni-colored glasses off the Muslim-raised boy.

Obama has proven that his loyalties are to radical Islamists, and his objective is to bring down this nation. How did Obama evade the constitutionally-required vetting process that confirmed he was qualified to run for President of the United States?

America, it is time to wake up and smell the real jihadi. We do not have a President – we have a Terrorist-in-Chief – and we must remove him before it is too late!

Not content with bullets, U.S. Dept of Agriculture now buys submachine guns

The United States of America has a formidable military — still the most powerful in the world — to protect us against foreign enemies and invasions.

Every town or city in the United States of America has a police force that’s increasingly armed to the teeth with military-grade weapons, to protect citizens from criminals. (See “Obama regime supplies military-grade arms to police”)

So why are civilian bureaucracies in the executive branch of the federal government arming themselves to the teeth with millions of rounds of bullets, battle rifles, assault weapons, and armored trucks? (Scroll to the end of this post for examples.)

This disturbing trend began more than 4 years ago when news came that the Dept of Education had bought shotguns.

Two years ago, the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) purchased 300,000 rounds of ammo. Now comes news that the USDA is graduating to submachine guns! 

On May 7, 2014, the USDA’s Office of Inspector General filed a purchase request with the General Services Administration for submachine guns. Here’s the solicitation number and request:

Solicitation Number: USDAOIGWEA-5-7-14
Notice Type: Sources Sought
Synopsis:
Added: May 07, 2014 2:03 pm

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, located in Washington, DC, pursuant to the authority of FAR Part 13, has a requirement for the commerical acquisition of submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burts trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsilbe or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation. NO SOLICITATION DOCUMENT EXISTS. All responsible and/or interested sources may submit their company name, point of contact, and telephone. If received timely, shall be considered by the agency for contact to determine weapon suitability.

Charles McFarlane reports for Modern Farmer, Sept. 19, 2014, that according to a USDA press rep, the guns are necessary for self-protection:

“OIG Special Agents regularly conduct undercover operations and surveillance. The types of investigations conducted by OIG Special Agents include criminal activities such as fraud in farm programs; significant thefts of Government property or funds; bribery and extortion; smuggling; and assaults and threats of violence against USDA employees engaged in their official duties.”

Not everyone believes the USDA being armed to the teeth is justifiable. On Aug. 2, the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund launched a petition to support a bill that would curb the ability of agencies like the USDA to arm themselves. They see it as overkill and scare tactics, especially for smaller farm producers.

Liz Reitzig, co-founder of the Farm Food Freedom Coalition, says, ““What we have seen happen, with the FDA especially, is they have come onto small farms, raw milk producers, and raided the heck out of them with armed agents present. Do we really want to have our federal regulatory agencies bring submachine guns onto these family farms with children?”

The Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund petition focuses on two now infamous blows to the raw milk community – the 2010 and 2011 raids on Rawsome Food Club in Venice, California, which were carried out by armed federal agents from the FDA and other agencies.

The USDA’s Office of Inspector General’s Investigation Development bulletins show there have been three incidents in the last year that involved firearms and two in which USDA agents were verbally threatened. Still, most of their enforcement operations surround white-collar fraud of government programs, often involving SNAP (or food stamps) programs. “If there is fraud in the SNAP program, look at how it is implemented and make changes in the entire program,” says Reitzig. “Don’t bring machine guns onto farms.”

Rep. Chris Stewart

Rep. Chris Stewart

The Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund are not the only ones interested in taking guns out of the hands of USDA agents. Congressman Chris Stewart (R-Utah) is the sponsor of the bill on the FTCLDF petition. “At its heart it comes down to this: To myself, and for a lot of Americans, there is great concern over regulator agencies with heavy handed capabilities,” Rep. Stewart told Modern Farmer.

His bill, H.R. 4934, hopes “to prohibit certain federal agencies from using or purchasing certain firearms, and for other purposes.” When asked about the USDA’s plan for submachine guns, he said, “I can’t envision a scenario where what they are doing would require that.”

Another concern is simply accountability. The request for submachine guns from the USDA doesn’t say how many guns.

Congressman Stewart said, ““We have never argued that federal regulators don’t need to protect themselves.” But the USDA “have been very unhelpful in trying to find out any information about this. “e couldn’t get answers — it doesn’t seem right to me. They should do what the rest of us do, call the local sheriff.”

3 killed, 30 wounded in weekend shootings across city

rahm_emanuel_2

The most recent fatal shooting happened about 6:15 a.m. Saturday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.  Jose Rios, 23, was walking with another person about 6:15 a.m. in the 4500 block of South Hermitage when a dark-colored van pulled up and someone got out of the passenger side and opened fire, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Rios, of the 4300 block of South Paulina, was shot multiple times and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:59 a.m., authorities said. Police said the shooting was gang-related.

About 10:15 p.m. Friday, a man was killed and two others were wounded in an Englewood neighborhood shooting. The three men — ages 25, 27 and 63 — were outside in the 5700 block of South Aberdeen when two people walked out of a gangway and opened fire, police said.

The 27-year-old, later identified as Malachi Baldwin, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 10:41 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Baldwin lived in the 5600 block of South Elizabeth, authorities said.

The 25-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. The 63-year-old man was taken to St. Bernard Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand. Their conditions had stabilized.

A police source said the man killed had documented gang ties.

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened Friday afternoon inside a West Englewood neighborhood barbershop.  A group of people entered a business in the 1900 block of West 59th about 2 p.m. and someone opened fire, police said. Suitable Barber and Beauty Shop is listed at 1959 W. 59th St.

Deandre Ellis, 22, of the 5700 block of South Laflin, was shot in the chest and taken to Christ Medical Center, where he died at 3 p.m., authorities said.

A 44-year-old man also shot in the chest was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition, and a 31-year-old man shot in the hand was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where his condition had stabilized.

The most recent shooting happened early Sunday in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

Two men, both 19, were sitting were sitting in a parked vehicle in the 6300 block of South Seeley about 2:45 a.m. when a light-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside fired shots, police said. The men drove themselves to Holy Cross Hospital.

One of the men was shot in the leg, and his condition had stabilized, police said. The other suffered a graze wound to the back of the head, and was treated and released.

At least 21 other people have been shot across the South and Southwest sides since Friday afternoon.

Also, two people were being questioned after a man was stabbed to death Saturday afternoon during a domestic incident in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side.

The 21-year-old man was stabbed about 3 p.m. in the 6500 block of South Minerva, police said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The medical examiner’s office confirmed the fatality, but did not release additional information Saturday night. Two people are being questioned in connection with the stabbing, police said.

If You Like Your Dr. You Can Keep Your Dr…..Not!

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same
complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day
and has a time booked for surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an
appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray,
which isn’t reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery
scheduled for 6 months from then, pending the review boards decision on
his age and remaining value to society.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care…
In November if there is no change in government we’ll all have to find a
good vet!

Police officers shot in racial tension-filled Missouri

Police-Shooting-MissouriMissouri State Highway Patrol troopers in Ferguson, Mo., join police in search for suspects in the shooting of a police officer on Sept. 27, 2014.

Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, has the dubious distinction of being America’s new epicenter of black racial protests and looting since white officer Darren Wilson had shot an unarmed 300-lb black 18-year-old named Michael Brown on Aug. 9, 2014.

Beginning on Thursday, Sept. 25, after a period of quiescence, protests by blacks against the Brown shooting resumed. Yesterday (Sept. 27), around the time of two separate protests, a Ferguson police officer was shot and wounded. The two suspects remain at large.

Jon BelmarSt. Louis County police chief Jon Belmar

Although the protests were contemporaneous with the officer shooting, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar nevertheless confidently dismissed the possibility that the protests were related in any way to the attack on the officer.

Belmar said at a news conference early Sunday that at around 9 p.m. last night, while checking on a closed community center, the unnamed officer spotted two men who began running when he approached them. The officer chased them, and as he closed in on one of the suspects, the second suspect pulled out a gun and fired at the officer, shooting him in the arm. The officer fired several shots in return, but there was no indication that he hit either of the suspects.

Without identifying the officer or providing further details about his condition, Belmar said the officer is expected to survive.

The shooting comes amid simmering tension between blacks and the police in Ferguson, where two-thirds of the residents are black, but only three of the city’s 53 police officers are “African-American”.

Thomas JacksonFerguson police chief Thomas Jackson

Earlier Saturday, Brown’s parents told The Associated Press that they were unmoved by a videotaped apology released days earlier by Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, whose attempt to march with protesters Thursday sparked a clash that led to several arrests.

When asked whether Jackson should be fired, Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, said he should be. Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would like Darren Wilson, the officer who shot their son, to be arrested.

Michael Brown's parentsMichael Brown’s parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr.

A county grand jury is weighing whether to indict Wilson in Brown’s shooting.

The Obama administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating whether Brown’s civil rights were violated and conducting a broader probe into the Ferguson police department. On Friday, the DOJ urged police chief Jackson to ban his officers from wearing bracelets supporting Wilson while on duty and from covering up their name plates with black tape.

A few days ago, at a meeting with federal officials, Ferguson residents had complained about the bracelets, which are black with “I am Darren Wilson” in white lettering.

Also early Sunday, not far from Ferguson, an off-duty St. Louis city police officer was injured on Interstate 70 when three suspects fired shots into his personal vehicle. The off-duty officer, who has nearly 20 years of experience, was being treated at a hospital for a minor injury to his arm from broken glass.

Like St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, police spokeswoman Schron Jackson also dismissed the shooting of the off-duty officer as racially motivated, or that the shooting is related to the shooting of the Ferguson police officer the night before.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon expressed sympathy for the injured officers in a conference call Sunday from Afghanistan with reporters from Missouri, and lamely described the violence as “a challenge for everyone.”

Meanwhile, in some quarters, the shooting of the Ferguson officer is being celebrated. Here’s a tweet by someone who calls himself “JosephIsVegan.” Note the hammer and sickle after his name:

tweet about Ferguson officer shooting

You can also hear a man in this short video of protesters (0:10 mark) say “I hope that bitch [the Ferguson cop] die,” and another man (the same JosephIsVegan?) at the end of the video say, “We praying that he dies”.

But the police would have you believe that the shooting of the two police officers is not racially motivated.

Yeah, right. [sarc]
