President Trump nixes Obama deal for China to control Port of Long Beach

The Port of Long Beach, California is the second-busiest port in the United States and one of the world’s busiest seaports, a leading gateway for trade between the United States and Asia. It supports more than 2.6 million jobs nationally and generates billions of dollars in economic activity each year.

Founded in 1911, each year, the Port handles:

  • More than 7.5 million 20-foot container units (TEUs)
  • Cargo valued at $194 billion
  • 82.3 million metric tons of cargo
  • 2,000 vessel calls

The Port’s loaded containers account for:

  • 1/3 moving through all California ports
  • 1/4 moving through all West Coast ports
  • nearly 1 in 5 moving through all U.S. ports

Given its importance, for a foreign country to control the Port of Long Beach would be worrisome, not to mention a foreign country has no business controlling any port in the United States. Even worse, however, if the foreign country is one not friendly to the United States and whose politcal-economic system is hostile to democracy.

But that’s precisely what the Obama administration did.

In 2012, the Obama administration signed an agreement — a 40-year container terminal lease — giving OOCL (Orient Overseas Container Line), a Hong Kong container transportation and logistics company, control of the Port of Long Beach, America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles.

Note: Hong Kong is a part of China, ostensibly a “special administration region” with alleged autonomy from the Chinese government in Beijing.

According to Printus LeBlanc of the Daily Torch, OOCL has been a good steward of the port with no controversy associated with the company.

In July 2017, however, OOCL was purchased by COSCO (China Ocean Shipping Company), a Chinese government-owned conglomerate. Headquarted in Beijing, COSCO is the largest dry bulk carrier in China and one of the largest dry bulk shipping operators worldwide.

LeBlanc points out why COSCO’s control of the Port of Long Beach is a matter of great concern:

This is the same Chinese government responsible for dozens of hacks and spying operations, targeting the U.S. defense industry. The communist government has been assaulting the defense industry, stealing hundreds of billions of dollars in trade secrets. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been able to make staggering technological advancements because of the theft. The F-35, V-22, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, and Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System are just a few of the systems compromised by Chinese espionage efforts. After the unprecedented level of spying, why would the U.S. invite the perpetrator onto U.S. soil?

The attempted Chinese purchase of the port operations fits a pattern for the Chinese government. The Communist regime has undertaken an ambitious global project known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The initiative is a series of Chinese controlled ports, railways, and highway projects connecting 65 percent of the global population and 40 percent of global GDP.

China is using the BRI to influence policies of the nations the belt passes throughas it did with Greece last Summer. Greece refused to back the European Union’s attempt to criticize China’s human rights record, marking the first time the union failed to make its statement at the U.N.

The addition of the Long Beach Port implies the Chinese government may want to extend the belt to the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps we shouldn’t make it so easy for them.

Happily, President Trump squashed the Obama administration’s deal.

Judicial Watch reports:

Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

The deal never should have been signed in the first place considering the facility’s size, significance and the national security issues associated with a hostile foreign government controlling it….

Removing Chinese Communists from this essential port is a tremendous feat and a huge victory for U.S. national security. You’d never know it because the media, consumed with the impeachment debacle, has ignored this important achievement. The only coverage of the finalized transfer is found in Long Beach’s local newspaper, which published a brief article omitting important background information on the Trump administration’s work to take back the terminal from the Communists….

In the last few years China has bought cargo ports throughout the world, including in Latin America, the Indian Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Chinese-owned ports are located in Greece, Italy, Spain and other European locations. In sub-Saharan Africa there are dozens of existing or planned port projects funded or operated by China, according to a study that highlights the threat the Chinese investments present to U.S. influence in the region. One troubling analysis points out that “COSCO’s commercial expansion has created leverage for Beijing — leverage that has already resulted in countries that host COSCO ports adopting China’s position on key international issues.

Thank you, President Trump!

Savage: President Trump’s admin rolls back Michelle Obama’s school lunch program – on her birthday!

I remember when this program was rolled out. The kids HATED it and A LOT of food went to waste.

Happy Birthday Moochelle!

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump’s administration proposed new school lunch guidelines Friday that would undo several changes made by Michelle Obama to get more fruit and veggies on the menu: a move that comes on the former first lady’s birthday.

The Department of Agriculture, which oversees the Food and Nutrition Service, said it is proposing new rules ‘to simplify meal service and reduce food waste.’ That would include ‘increasing flexibility in the “vegetable subgroups” requirements for school lunches.’

But the changes would allow schools to cut the amount of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfasts while giving them the ability to offer more pizza, burgers and fries instead.

It would also undo rules championed by Michelle Obama as part of her Let’s Move initiative and The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.

Friday is the former first lady’s 56th birthday.

Michelle Obama made healthy eating a signature issue during her time in the White House. ‘I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition,’ she said.

Trump, however, is known for his love of fast food. He often ate McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken on the campaign trail. One of his favorite meals is a hamburger with a side salad consisting of an edge of iceberg lettuce covered in blue cheese. Apple pie with ice cream is his favorite dessert.

Consumer groups slammed the proposed school meal changes. (#OrangeManBad!)

‘The proposed rule would allow anything that might be allowable as an entrée on any one school day to be served as an a la carte item every single day. In practice, if finalized, this would create a huge loophole in school nutrition guidelines, paving the way for children to choose pizza, burgers, French fries, and other foods high in calories, saturated fat or sodium in place of balanced school meals every day,’ Center for Science in the Public Interest Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs Colin Schwartz said in a statement.

Virginia anti-gun rights Gov. Northam (D) declares state of emergency

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners:

  • Local officials have issued pro-Second Amendment statements vowing to protect citizens’ gun rights against state authorities.
  • Cities and counties are forming militias and sanctuaries (see “Virginians are forming sanctuaries and militias against the anticipated gun grab“). As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.
  • Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a grassroots gun-rights organization, called for a rally next Monday, January 20, at the state capitol in Richmond, to lobby VA legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights. VCDL President Phillip Van Cleave told Liberty Nation “the state is green with sanctuaries” and that he expects a massive turnout.

Monday, January 20, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day — a day known as “Lobby day” in Virginia politics as advocates for a number of causes use the holiday to try and buttonhole lawmakers. On that day, pro-gun and gun-control advocates would hold rallies. Jeff Katz, the host of a popular radio show on WRVA, said thousands of citizens are expected at the gun-rights rally next Monday because “People are outraged. This is the tipping point.”

Democrat Ralph Northam had men in black face and a KKK hood in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Reacting to the planned rally, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency banning guns and “weapons of all kinds” from the state capitol beginning tomorrow, January 17, through next Tuesday, January 21.

The Associated Press reports that on Jan. 15, 2020, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol” ahead of a gun-rights rally next Monday. The emergency order will ban weapons of all kinds, including firearms, helmets and shields, from the Capitol grounds starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.

Northam said the emergency order was necessary to protect public safety because of potential violence from out-of-state groups at the Monday rally. Claiming that “law enforcement agencies” consider the rally to pose “credible, serious threats,” Northam said some of the rhetoric used by groups planning to attend Monday’s rally is similar to what was said in the lead-up to last year’s so-called “white nationalist” rally in Charlottesville, VA, and that “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here.”

Virginia Republicans, who did not even field candidates in many precincts in last November’s election, thereby ceding victory to the Democrats, were mixed in their response:

  • VA House Minority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert lamented that “there are legitimate concerns of a few bad actors hijacking the rally.”
  • But Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jack Wilson condemned Northam’s declaration in a statement: “Northam and the rest of the Virginia Democrats have made their session goal crystal clear: a disarmed, vulnerable, and subservient citizenry.”

Northam’s emergency announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control.

InfoWars has an audio recording of an unnamed Virginia State police officer saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating (“running”) Northam’s state of emergency, and that “there are people in high places in [VA] government” who are “told to do…ignore Trump, pipe down, and the people are just scared and just frustrated.”

On the Todd Starnes radio show, Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. vows he will “call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this [state of emergency]. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They [Democrats] don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”

Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

Note: When WordPress took down this blog on August 15, 2018, many of our published posts were disappeared from the net, each of which must be retrieved, restored and re-published on its original publication date. This post was originally published on Dec. 27, 2014. It is so interesting, it warrants a fresh re-publishing.

………………………………………………………………….

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.
In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama”…. [T]the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

In late February 2011, the mystery further deepened when retired US Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, the litigant in an Obama eligibility lawsuit, conducted a search for Obama’s Connecticut SSN in the Social Security Number Verification System used by small businesses to verify employment eligibility. The results came back as:

Failed: SSN not in file (never issued)

To the question of why Obama obtained a Connecticut-issued SSN instead of one by Hawaii, Joel Gilbert, maker of the documentary Dreams from My Real Father, has a plausible explanation: Obama’s peculiar Connecticut-issued SSN is related to the question of Obama’s birth certificate.

At the inception of the program, all SSNs were assigned and cards issued based solely on information provided by the applicant. However, in the 1970s, Social Security Administration began requiring proof of age, identity, and citizenship. In 1977, lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy a SS number so he could get his first job at a Honolulu Baskin Robbins. Gilbert surmises that Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn’t be traced back to the Hawaii SS office. (See “Why Obama has a Connecticut Social Security no.”)

It goes without saying that it is a crime to use a Social Security number that isn’t yours. It is also a fact that once the Social Security Administration issued a SSN, even after the recipient died, SSA will never reissue that number to another person. There is one Numident record for each SSN ever assigned. A numident is the social security number itself, which is only assigned once and is never used again unless it is stolen.

So who was the original owner of Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number?

In May 2011, blogger The Obama Hustle conducted a database pull for SSN 042-68-4425 and got the names of Harrison J. Bounel and Barack Obama, indicating that one SSN was being used by both men.

Since Obama uses Harrison Bounel’s SSN, a search for the relatives of Harrison Bounel shows Michelle Obama as Bounel’s spouse (see below).

So who is/was Harrison J. Bounel?

Leslie Bishop, a genealogy expert with over 25 years of experience, found a 1940 Census document showing a Harry Bounel, age 50, residing in Bronx, NY, which would make 1890 Bounel’s birth year. Harry Bounel’s listing is on line 48 (see red arrow I painted next to his name).

In September 2012, Leslie Bishop sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Social Security Administration for information on a Harry Bounel with the SSN 042-68-4425. Below is the letter she received (you can also see the letter on Scribd):

In the letter dated November 16, 2012, Dawn S. Wiggins, Freedom of Information Officer at the Social Security Administration, wrote that in spite of Leslie Bishop’s FOIA request, her request is declined because “disclosing this information would be a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Mind you, in 2012 Harrison Bounel would have to be 120 years old, which means he had long died. But SS Administration nevertheless claims revealing information about his SS number would be an “invasion” of the dead man’s privacy.

Bishop stated that Social Security Administration “acknowledged my request for THAT numident and denied my request. In other words, that record exists and since there is only one Numident per SS# and that Numident for Harry Bounel with SS# 042-68-4425 apparently exists, then it’s not possible that O is using that number legally and it is apparent that Bounel is the original holder of that number.” (Source: The Obama Hustle)

Dr. Orly Taitz writes on Jan. 18, 2013:

According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425…. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910.

By “Robinson family,” Dr. Taitz means Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons (Michelle’s maiden name is Michelle Robinson). Taitz continues:

Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia…. It actually was not uncommon in those days for Jewish immigrant women from Russia to marry African American man, these Jewish women were not raised with any prejudice against African American men and also were persecuted.  I want to know, if Harry Bounel was related to her. He was born in 1890. She was born in 1893-1896. Very close in age, he could be her cousin. From what I understand Harry Bounel never married. In this case the only family, who would be his next of kin,  who would  be Robinson family.

Another weird coincidense [sic]. We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security [number] was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton [sic]. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy.

Dr. Taitz received the letter below from a reader:

I’m in my 60’s and grew up in Bridgeport CT until 1961. When I was a kid in the 50’s, we used to joke that if you’re bad you’ll be sent to the “Newtown nut house”, a psychiatric hospital in Newtown that was just next to Danbury. […] You had surmised that the identity [Obama’s Connecticut SSN] was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site.

Dr. Taitz found that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, elderly individuals like Harrison Bounel needed to get a SSN in order to get Medicare benefits. “When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees,” that is, personnel at Fairfield State Hospital probably helped Bounel to fill out his application for a SSN.

According to Wikipedia, Michele Obama’s great great grandfather Jim Robinson’s second wife was Rose Ella Cohen.

A sharp-eyed reader of Taitz’s blog named Marshman noted that in the 1940 Census, right beneath the entry for Harry Bounel was Sam Cohen (line 49), which meant the two men lived next door. Bounel was identified as a “lodger” while Cohen was a “head” of household. Was Rose Ella Cohen a daughter of Sam Cohen?

There you have it:

The original owner of Obama’s stolen Connecticut-issued Social Security number was Harrison J. Bounel, an immigrant from Russia who was born in 1890, who seemed to have had some connection with a Jewish woman named Rose Ella Cohen, who was the second wife of the great great grandfather of Michelle Obama.

This same Bounel, whose Social Security number is one of Barack Obama’s many SSNs, was institutionalized in and probably died in the Fairfield State Hospital, a now-abandoned psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut which was closed down in 1995. The same Newtown, CT, where on Dec. 14, 2012, an alleged lone gunman named Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School — a massacre that every available evidence and sound reasoning point to it being a gigantic hoax.

What coincidences!!!

Below is a picture of Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital taken by citizen journalist “Barry” in his recent visit to Newtown. Barry said Newtown has a spooky ghost-town quality, with many abandoned buildings like Fairfield. Read his account here.

Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital, Newtown, CT

The weirdness doesn’t end. Stephen Baldwin writes:

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for [Stanley] Ann Dunham, his mother. […]

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his [maternal] grandparents [Stanley and Madelyn Dunham]. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

Socialist Bernie Sanders: “I have seen up close the pain, death, and despair caused by war”

Demorats have their panties in a wad over President Trump ordering the drone killing of Iranian militia terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As noted by Ben Shapiro, “According to Democrats, giving the Iranian terror regime access to hundreds of billions of dollars with no restrictions on terror use or ballistic missile testing was good, and killing the terrorist responsible for hundreds of American deaths is bad.”

That’s what TDS has done to the demorats.

Bernie Sanders is chiming in by claiming he’s got some “personal experience” into the despair caused by war. From a tweet of his on January 3:

As the former chair of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, I have seen up close the pain, death, and despair caused by war. And I know that it is rarely the children of the billionaire class who face the agony of reckless foreign policy.”

Well Bernie, sorry to burst your bubble but I’m going to say that YOUR 39 YEARS of bureaucratic experience doesn’t qualify you AT ANY LEVEL to speak about the pain of war.

There are claims on the internet that his parents were Holocaust survivors. They are not. He’s got nothing on the parental experiences of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

Bernie Sanders has ZERO military experience so he’s got nothing on the individual experience of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union in 1988

Bernie Sanders has no children so he’s never experienced parental anxiety of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

I can up you several times, Mr. Sanders:

My father served in the Korean War. His experiences were terrible. I do not care to publicly share the full details I had growing up of his service and the effect it had on him. All I will say is that several childhood events of his “episodes” had a lasting effect on me.

I had three uncles who served in WWII. One of them never came back.

My boyfriend is in the military and has done a tour in the sandbox. Hey Bernie, ever get a text from a loved one in the bunker who is receiving incomings? On Christmas?

These experiences of mine are NOTHING compared to the following U.S. citizens who had NO REQUESTED RESPONSE from the Obama Administration while they were being attacked for a “YouTube video:”

How convenient for Sanders to turn the attack on an U.S. embassy and our much deserved response into an economic warfare card to benefit his clueless sheeple.

I mean really Mr. Sanders, ask yourself this:

Obama has man boobs

As is his wont, Obama has vacationed in Hawaii every Christmas-New Year.

Do you remember this pic of him taken in Hawaii during Christmas 2008, which sent the Left swooning?

This year is no different.

Obama, 58, has been vacationing in Hawaii since mid-December.

On January 2, 2020, shirtless, wearing a pair of black swimming trunks, he was pictured paddleboarding in the Pacific Ocean with a member of the Secret Service in a kayak close behind. (Daily Mail)

In the 11 years since the “swooning” pic, Obama has developed man boobs.

I reckon his man boobs are the equivalent of a woman’s A-cup.

To be sure, I scoured the net for images of man boobs and found these, which the website Healthy bodylife calls “saggy man boobs”:

America! What a country!

Only in America do we have a former President with man boobs, and a former First Lady, with genitalia swinging in “his” pants.

What’s that swinging in Michelle Obama’s pants?

Leader of Iranian-backed siege of US embassy once visited Obama White House

I’m sure the media firefighters will be seeking a comment from their favorite democrat president. Especially since the Iranian visitor has been arrested.

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiight.

From NY Post: A leader of the Iranian-backed siege of the US Embassy in Baghdad visited the White House with other Iraqi officials in 2011 during the Obama administration, according to a report on Thursday.

Hadi al-Amari was photographed outside the US diplomatic compound after the militiamen tried to storm the facility and was identified by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of being an Iranian “proxy” aiding terror groups in Iraq.

“The attack today was orchestrated by terrorists – Abu Mahdi al Muhandis and Qays al-Khazali – and abetted by Iranian proxies – Hadi al Amari and Faleh al-Fayyad. All are pictured below outside our embassy,” Pompeo wrote in a tweet on Tuesday as the siege was underway.

Amari, the head of the Fatah Alliance, Iraq’s second-largest political party, was Iraq’s minister of transportation in 2011 and accompanied then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on an Oval Office visit with President Obama, the Daily Mail reported.

As the leader of the paramilitary group the Badr Organization, Amari has deep connections with the Iranian leadership and the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards. He fought alongside US forces against Islamic State terrorists as a commander in the Badr Organization.

Amari also played a crucial role in the formation of the Popular Mobilization Forces, an umbrella group of mostly Shiite militias in Iraq that includes Kataib Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran.

The US military conducted airstrikes over the weekend on five bases in Iraq and Syria belonging to Kataib Hezbollah, killing five fighters and wounded scores more, in an action that sparked the storming of the embassy in Baghdad.

The US blamed the Iran-aligned group with killing an American contractor and wounding four service members in a missile attack on an Iraqi base last Friday.

Louis Freeh, the FBI director in the Clinton administration, criticized Amari’s White House visit at the time because of the allegations connecting him to terrorist attacks, including the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 US military personnel.

The attack on the towers was eventually traced to Iran and Hezbollah, the Iranian-linked group based in Lebanon.

Why is the United Nations hiring a military disarmament officer for New York?

Did you know that the United Nations (UN) has a Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Resource Centre?

According to the Center’s website:

DDR stands for disarmament, demobilization and reintegration. The objective of the DDR process is to contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can begin. The DDR of ex-combatants is a complex process, with political, military, security, humanitarian and socio-economic dimensions. It aims to deal with the post-conflict security problem that arises when ex-combatants are left without livelihoods or support networks, other than their former comrades, during the vital transition period from conflict to peace and development. Through a process of removing weapons from the hands of combatants, taking the combatants out of military structures and helping them to integrate socially and economically into society, DDR seeks to support male and female ex-combatants and men, boys, women and girls associated with armed forces and groups, so that they can become active participants in the peace process….

All those who are found to be members of an armed force or group (to be included in the DDR programme), whether they were involved in active combat or in support roles (such as cooks, porters, messengers, administrators, sex slaves and ‘war wives’), shall be considered part of the armed force or group and therefore shall be included in the DDR programme….

Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons of combatants and often also of the civilian population. Disarmament also includes the development of responsible arms management programmes.

Although the United Nations is headquartered on international territory in New York City, the UN has no jurisdiction over the city.

This is doubly ensured by the fact that not only did President Trump not ratify the gun control UN Arms Trade Treaty signed by Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry, April Trump officially withdrew the United States from the treaty last April.

So why, then, is the UN advertising to hire an English-speaking Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officer who would be assigned to the UN’s Department of Peace Operations and stationed in the city of New York?

On December 26, 2019, the UN posted this job opening on its “Careers” website (also archived here):

Job Opening

Posting Title: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER, P4

Job Code Title: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER

Department/Office: Department of Peace Operations

Duty Station: NEW YORK

Posting Period: 26 December 2019 – 08 February 2020

Job Opening Number: 19-Security Institutions-DPO-127453-R-New York (R)

The responsibilities of the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer include:

  • Acts as a Focal Point for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) components for two to three missions, responsible for planning, support to implementation and evaluation;
  • Participates in DPO and Integrated Task Force planning meetings for the establishment of a new peacekeeping mission with a potential DDR component;
  • Provides Headquarters support in planning the civilian and military logistics support for DDR

The “work experience” of this Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer must include “Seven years of relevant experience in disarmament affairs, political analysis or in national military or paramilitary service, preferably related to the design, implementation or review of DDR.

Michelle Obama admits daughters Malia and Sasha were conceived by IVF

This news should be earth-shaking.

But if it weren’t for the UK’s BBC, we wouldn’t know about it, because the U.S. “fake news” media did not report it although they knew about it for more than a year.

Below is the relevant section in the BBC report of November 9, 2018. I supplied the red bold emphasis.

No author, “Michelle Obama reveals daughters were conceived by IVF,” BBC, November 9, 2019.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has released a memoir in which she reveals difficulties about her marriage and pregnancy with her two daughters. In the book, Becoming, Mrs Obama reveals that she had a miscarriage and used in vitro fertilisation to conceive both children, Malia and Sasha. Mrs Obama told ABC’s Good Morning America she felt “lost and alone” after her miscarriage 20 years ago. She also criticised Donald Trump for “putting my family’s safety at risk”.

Mrs Obama and her husband, former President Barack Obama, sought couples therapy, she also revealed for the first time in her 426-page book, which will be released on Tuesday. Following publication, the first African-American first lady will tour 10 cities including London.

Mrs Obama, a former lawyer and hospital administrator, told ABC that after her miscarriage, “I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them.

“We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken,” she said, adding that “it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen”.

She said that when she was around 34 years old, she realized that “the biological clock is real” and that “egg production is limited”, which made her decide to seek in-vitro fertilisation.

“I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work,” Mrs Obama told ABC’s Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

Mrs Obama revealed that the couple’s relationship struggled at times, especially after her husband joined the state legislature, leaving her at home where she was forced to administer IVF shots herself.

But Michelle Obama is still not telling us the truth.

IVF is in vitro fertilization, whereby a woman’s egg (ovum) is extracted from her body, then fertilized by a man’s sperm in a laboratory. After the fertilized egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.

If Malia and Sasha were conceived via IVF — and that’s a big “if” — the eggs didn’t come from Michelle, neither were the fertilized zygotes implanted in Michelle’s uterus, for this simple reason:

A transvestite man does not have ovaries that produce eggs, nor does he have a uterus.

Or are you one of the sheeple who are still deluded in thinking Michelle Obama is actually a female?

Do women have genitalia swinging in their pants?

What’s that swinging in Michelle Obama’s pants?

Now you know why Barack Obama, father of two daughters and touted by the media as “the smartest man ever,” cannot pronounce OB/GYN.

Where are Obama’s daughters’ baby pics and birth records?

On August 15, 2018 — after 9½ years, tens of thousands of posts, and more than 63 million unique views or hits — WordPress unilaterally and without warning took down this blog, Fellowship of the Minds. WordPress’ takedown is the equivalent of burning not just a book, but an entire library.

WordPress did allow us to “migrate” FOTM to another host-server. But in the course of the migration, most of our already-published posts disappeared from the web, but were deposited as unpublished posts in our “Draft” folder which must be retrieved and republished, one by one.

In the course of the past year, I have been slowly and laboriously restoring the posts. Thus far, I’ve been able to find almost all of our posts, except a handful, among which is my post of June 10, 2017, “Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty — June 8, 1967,” now lost forever.

I discovered that my post of November 29, 2013, titled “Where are Obama’s daughters’ baby pics and birth records?,” is another one of the very few posts that WordPress had deleted entirely from the net, without a trace.

Fortunately, that essay had been reposted by several sites. Below is a reconstruction and re-publish of my 2013 post, “Where are Obama’s daughters’ baby pics and birth records”.

——————————————————————————————

I got an email this morning from FOTM reader Dave McMullen, asking why there aren’t baby pictures of Obama’s two daughters, Malia and Sasha.

Wikipedia says “Barack and Michelle Obama have two daughters: Malia Ann, born on July 4, 1998, and Natasha (known as Sasha), born on June 10, 2001.“

So I did a Google Image search for Obama’s daughters. I couldn’t find any baby pics of Malia or Sasha; neither could Dave.

The youngest-looking pic of the girls I found (see below) was in an article extolling Michelle Obama, dated August 20, 2007, on the website Afrobella. The pic is undated. If we go by the date of the Afrobella article, Malia would be 9 years old and Sasha would be 6 years old.

In contrast, Dave found a website with a pic of Laura Bush, wife of President George W. Bush, holding their two-month-old twins, Jenna and Barbara.

I have seen pics of Barack and Michelle’s wedding, like this one below, but none of Michelle pregnant with child.

Then I went on the website Ancestry.com, and searched for birth records of Malia Obama, b. 1998, and Natasha Obama, b. 2001. These are the results:

In other words, Ancestry.com has no birth records for Malia or Natasha Obama.

Then I paid $9.95 for a trial membership in GenealogyBank.com so that I can search that website for the Obama girls’ birth records.

Below is a screenshot I took from genealogybank.com of the result of my search for Malia Obama. I’ve circled in red the date and time when I accessed the website.

As you can see above, the only thing genealogybank.com has in its newspaper archives on Malia Obama is an article by Sen. Obama titled “Progress on campaign finance reform,” in the Chicago newspaper Hyde Park Herald of August 26, 1998, in which Obama (presumably) mentioned Malia. Here’s the newspaper clip (the words are rather blurry):

Below is a screenshot I took from genealogybank.com of the result of my search for Natasha Obama. I’ve circled in red the date and time when I accessed the website. Click the image below to enlarge.

The only thing genealogybank.com has on Natasha Obama is an article in Hyde Park Herald of  July 4, 2001, again by Sen. Obama titled “Tallying wins and losses in Springfield Springfield report,” in which he wrote “The newest addition to the Obama family — Natasha — was born on June 10th, and Michelle and I have been busy changing diapers.” Click image below to enlarge.

In other words, I couldn’t find any birth records of either Malia Obama or Natasha Obama on either ancestry.com or genealogybank.com.

The same Wikipedia entry I had referenced at the beginning of this post states that Malia and Natasha Obama were both delivered by their parents’ friend Dr. Anita Blanchard at University of Chicago Medical Center.”

Wikipedia’s source of that assertion is an article of Jodi Kantor titled “Obama’s Friends Form Strategy to Stay Close,” in The New York Times of December 13, 2008. The article is about a group of Obama’s closest friends in Chicago, among whom are Valerie Jarrett (now Obama’s senior White House adviser) and a black man named Martin Nesbitt who is now a real estate investory. Nesbitt’s wife is Dr. Anita Blanchard.

But the NYT article does NOT say that Dr. Blanchard had delivered Obama’s daughters. Instead, what the article says is “Mr. Nesbitt’s wife, Dr. Anita Blanchard, delivered nearly all the children [of Obama and his closest friends in Chicago], and the adults became their godparents.”

If anyone can find baby pictures and birth records of Malia Obama and/or Natasha Obama, please let me know!

UPDATE (Nov. 29, 2013):

Reader scannersliveinvain found this pic of Barack and Michelle with an infant Malia (source):

UPDATE (Dec.1, 2013):

Here’s another pic of young Malia and Sasha (source). Whose hairy arm is that behind the girls? (h/t FOTM reader JS):

UPDATE (Dec. 3, 2013):

Attorney Orly Taitz is wondering if Natasha Obama had been adopted from Morocco, and has issued a call for help, Dec. 1, 2013:

I am looking for any and all information in regards to Michelle and Barack Obama travelling to Morocco in 2000-2001, one way trip for Natasha (Sasha) Obama from Morocco in and around 2000, possibly 2001, If you have such info, please, forward it to Orly.Taitz@hushmail.com

Responding to a comment from a reader accusing her of “going after” Obama’s daughters — just as commenters here on FOTM similarly have accused me of “going after” the girls when all Taitz and I are doing is simply to ask questions — Taitz wrote this comment:

dr_taitz@yahoo.com
December 2nd, 2013 @ 7:15 am

Nobody is going after the children. It is a legitimate question: why there are no birth certificates and birth records for Malia and Sasha Obama, while there such records for children of other presidents? For example, media questioned, whether Sarah Palin’s youngest child is actually her daughter’s child, Sarah Palin produced his hospital birth certificate. Media reported on adoption of McCain’s second daughter Bridget, on adoption of Romney’s grand children, on birth of two of Romney’s grand children by a surrogate, why not provide an explanation, why there are no birth records of Malia and Sasha Obama in national databases, while all the other records are there. This is particularly of interest, as it was shown that Barack Obama is using a stolen Connecticut Social Security number of Harrison Bounel, which failed both e-verify and SSNVS and fabricated IDs. What is going on?

Update (June 23, 2014):

In an email, Dr. Taitz wrote, “one of my supporters claimed that she worked in the US embassy in Morocco when Sasha (Natasha ) Obama was adopted from Morocco,” but Taitz is still trying to confirm this claim.

Orly Taitz posted this on Novembr 30, 2013:

In the article a researcher was surprised by the fact that ancestry.com or other databases did not have birth records for Obama’s children, she also was questioning why there are no baby pictures of Obama’s children available. One of the readers found two baby pictures and I posted them, however nobody found the birth records yet. I decided to verify what this reader was saying and went on Ancestry.com. Just as a test I easily found all of my family’s records. I thought maybe there are no records for children of all of the US Presidents. So, as a test, I entered Jenna Bush and   I found her  birth record and her marriage record. So the vital statistics of children of the U.S. Presidents are not sealed. I have no explanation, why there are no birth records for Obama’s children in ancestry.com.

Here are two pics I found on Pinterest: the first of Obama with newborn baby Malia; the second of the Obamas with baby Sasha and an older Malia:
