Obama’s Cloward-Piven Strategy Taking Longer Than Expected … J. D. Longstreet

Obama’s Cloward-Piven Strategy Taking Longer Than Expected
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

******************************

Obama’s plan to fundamentally change America by crashing her government and her society and remaking it in the model of a socialist dung heap (Cloward-Piven in a nutshell) is taking longer than had been expected.

See, these pesky conservatives refuse to go away.  We’re “hanging in here like a hair in a biscuit!”  Crude?  Yeah.  Accurate?  Darned right!
Flash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche
Think about it.  Obama only has to defeat half the country.  Nearly half of America’s citizens pay no taxes and have no “skin in the game.”  They could not care less what happens to America so long as those “gov-mint” checks keep showing up in their bank accounts and/or mail boxes.

Unfortunately for the “Progressive/Marxists,” America’s conservative core will not surrender.

So the Obama revolutionaries push even harder.  They are relentless in their drive to transform America into a communist country and a police state.

The increase in Americans on the government dole is a major part of their scheme.  In fact it is the foundation upon which the plan to collapse the American economy is built.   It is also the corner stone of the strategy to collapse our constitutional representative form of government into a communist “republic,” you know, like North Korea.

Think about it.  Already the Cloward-Piven bunch has captured one half of America’s citizens.  The government feeds, clothes, and houses them — and even gives them a cell phone. — for FREE!  There is no way under the sun that that 49 percent of Americans will ever support a form of government that demands they work for a living and contribute something, anything, to their country.

Half of the country is made up of wards of the government/state.  Over the generations, responsibility has been bred and indoctrinated out of them.  They are now, for all intents and purposes, drones.Omega

Generations of families on the dole have established that form of living as the “norm.” within the drone community.

But what about their indoctrination?

In an article by David Kupelian entitled: “Americans ‘snapping’ by the millions” Mr. Kupelian says the following:  “We need to realize that Americans could not have twice elected a leader as transcendentally unworthy of the presidency as Barack Obama without first having had their minds and hearts captured. Through constant leftist indoctrination, emotional manipulation, ruthless intimidation – and then being rewarded once they have “converted” – perhaps half of the American electorate has been programmed over the course of decades by a subversive school system and equally perverse “news” establishment. Truth be told, both institutions have become full-blown abominations, occupying as they do near-sacred stations of public trust in American civilization.” SOURCE:  http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/americans-snapping-by-the-millions/

Mr. Kupelian is spot on.  The Progressive/Marxists have been at this a very long time.  It did not just spring up with Obama.  Obama just happens to be their willing co-conspirator believing, as he does, in the Cloward-Piven Strategy — and — having been groomed since childhood for just this task — at just this time in history.

Years ago, I wrote of the America’s roiling rage just below the surface.  With the added weight and effrontery of Obama and Cloward-Piven, with the audacious (even arrogant) behavior of Obama’s minions in the various departments of government, that rage is beginning to break through to the surface.  

Stress is the order of the day in America.  Everyone, I mean EVERYONE (except the drone community), is on edge.  Nerves are stretched to the breaking point.  There is a sense that something is about to happen, something that will throw America into chaos.

Firearm sales are at historic levels.  Ammunition has, for the most part, been sold out across the nation.  Ammo dealers and gun dealers have stacks of back orders.  Ammo manufacturers say they are working overtime to turn out as much product as possible and yet, they are unable to meet the demand.

What’s happening?  Well, that fifty percent of Americans — not in Obama’s orbit — are preparing to defend their rights, their constitution.  They are preparing to defend the country many swore to defend in the oaths they took as members of America’s military and as police officers, and sheriff’s deputies, etc., plus — the millions of Americans motivated by love of freedom and the determination to fight to preserve the country their ancestors fought, bled, and died to hand down to them.

The atmosphere in America today is electric.  Like the two poles of a magnet, the two political poles repel each other. 

The country is split into two nearly equal halves.  There is a near audible hum emanating from the energy built up on both sides.

The clash, when it comes, will be “biblical” in it’s intensity.  Believe me, the scars left from the last American-on-American clash are still visible and still raw after 150 years — at least in my beloved Dixie.

There is a pressure valve, however, to ease the pressure and stave off a nationwide explosion.  It is the mid-term election in November of 2014.  If we can make it that far without going to war with each other, we may have a chance.

In order to stop the coming conflict between Americans, voters will have to vote for conservatives to hold the US House of Representatives — and — capture the US Senate.  It is the ONLY way to avoid a meltdown and the explosion that will tear the nation apart no matter who “wins” the conflict.

Syria is a “NO Win” for the US … J. D. Longstreet

Syria is a “NO Win” for the USFlash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

**************

31f53-j-d-longstreet23213

Don’t know about you, but I haven’t lost a cotton-picking thing in Syria! And I am not eager to have the US become entangled in another Middle Eastern civil war in which there are NO GOOD GUYS!

Involvement in the Syrian mess is a no win situation for the US. Any faction we back has the potential to turn the arms we provide them on us — now or later.

The first thing the White House ought to do, it seems to me, is shut up!  Obama should stop creating so-called “red lines,” “lines in the sand,”  and “game changer” scenarios.

Assad is not afraid of Obama. Hardly anybody is, for that matter.  He is seen world wide as a motor-mouth with no spine to back up his threats.

Obama’s pronouncements of future action in Syria are not taken seriously — and with good reason. His empty threats are now seen as more comical than serious.   Frankly, it makes America look bad internationally, and it embarrasses many of us here at home.

Worst still, it nullifies America’s implied power abroad.  Our allies look at us and wonder if we can be trusted any longer.  America’s word is in question. To this ole southern boy it is worst, even, than that.  It means our HONOR is in question.

When one looks objectively at the Syrian mess, there simply are no good options for America.

As the well qualified “armchair general” that I am, I an say without hesitation I see no way to “win” in Syria.  It looks, for all the world, like another Iraq and another Afghanistan.  The scenario I see is that we’d send in thousands of US troops (and materiel), and months, or years, later we leave having spent gobs of our treasure and gallons of our blood only to have Syria revert right back to the mess it is in currently — even before the dust of our last exiting deuce-and-a-half has settled.

Gone are the days when the American military would land on the beaches of Syria and drive inwards all the way to he borders of Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, and Lebanon, cutting down all before it like a scythe.  That’s not going to happen.

If there is military operations against Syria, it will probably be in the form of cruise missiles lobed from ships standing well out in the Mediterranean Sea so as not to come in contact with Russian warships anchored or cruising just off Syria’s shoreline.

There is considerable talk of imposing a “no-fly” zone over a part or parts of Syria.  As I understand it, this would create humanitarian zones in hopes that the Syria refugees now flooding surround countries could stay in relative safety inside their own country without fear of being shot or strafed from the air, bombarded by artillery, or fired upon by missile and rocket firing combat helicopters.

Establishing no-fly zones is not easy. It entails dong extensive damage to the target country’s air defense system, likely its air force, most certainly bombing air fields and landing strips and shooting down Syrian aircraft in the air and on the ground, and even clearing and maintaining an artillery free zone for more than a score of miles around the designated humanitarian zone.

And the maintenance of the no fly zone would be extraordinarily expensive for it requires twenty-four hour a day air patrols to insure that, indeed, nothing flies in than zone other than approved aircraft.  It is NOT an easy task.

The US is the world’s premier breaking and entering military.  In our own form of blitzkrieg, or “lightening war,” we have the ability along with the equipment and the combat tested and hardened troops to smash our way into a country swiftly and violently.

The real warriors in the US military will tell you that imposing a no fly zone anywhere over Syria will, no doubt, be answered by Assad’s military, which will then have to be dealt with.  That may, very well, entail US boots on the ground and what every US commander hates — “mission creep.”  Next thing you know, we are in a full blown war in Syria with no pre-planned end game in place.

Taking out, or securing Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons wold be a nightmare.  It would require thousands of US troops on the ground searching for those chemical weapons, which Intel informs has been moved to various locations in the country.

And what about a coalition of like minded countries joining America in Syria?  Well, according to our newly minted Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel,  there is no appetite for any such coalition at present.  His exact words reportedly were:  “no international or regional consensus on supporting armed intervention now exists.”

The British and the French can usually be counted on to watch our backs and, I expect, they’d be right in there with us.  But there is a strong possibility they would be it so far as a coalition is concerned.

It is clear America is edging ever closer to a reluctant military involvement in Syria and this commentator is not convinced the American people are with the President if, that is, he actually does decide to commit militarily to Syria.  I know at least one commentator who is certainly not ready for another Middle Eastern War unless, of course, it is with Iran.

Iran is a whole “nuther story” for another day.

Is Abortion Murder? … J. D. Longstreet

Is Abortion Murder?Flash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

*************

To many Americans abortion is an offense so serious that capital punishment would be considered appropriate.

Of course, it must be against the law first — and it isn’t.

Personally, I simply cannot think of a deed more dastardly, more evil, more repulsive than deliberately killing babies.

In the Scriptures, if someone injured a pregnant women so severely that the infant inside her died, that person’s life was taken — even though it may have been an accident.

“It is unconscionable that 1.3 million unborn and even born babies are murdered annually in America. To put this atrocity into perspective, 1.3 million is even more than the number of Jews the Nazis gassed annually during the Holocaust.”  SOURCE:  http://www.godvoter.org/abortion-bible-verses.html

My personal feelings on the matter are these: I do not support abortion, except in the case of incest, rape, or when the life of the mother is in jeopardy.  In the case of incest and rape, if the mother does not wish to keep the child then, I would prefer the child be given up for adoption rather than aborted.

“Rape and incest deserve one further note: They (thank God) represent a relatively uncommon cause of pregnancy – and figure in less than 2 percent of abortions. The other 98 percent are done for the sake of convenience (not that of the baby). Abortion represents the most common surgical procedure performed in America today.”  SOURCE:  http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/Abortion%20is%20Murder/physician_explains.htm 

Did you know the term “Murder” applies only to humans?  You cannot “murder” any other species on the planet.  You can kill them, you can slaughter them, but you cannot murder them. Why is that?

Well, let’s begin at the beginning… in the book of Genesis in the Bible.

Genesis chapter 9, verse 6, says the following: “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.”

It is obvious, then, that a human life is precious in the sight of God.  The life of a totally innocent baby, I would think, would be super-precious in the eyes of the Creator of all life.

All murders are homicide, but not all homicides are murder.  Homicide defined is:  The killing of a human being by another human being. 

An accidental killing of one human by another is homicide, but it is not murder.  The intentional killing of a human by another human is also homicide, but as the act was intentional, it is, therefore, murder.

I believe that human life begins at the moment of conception.  It is an article of faith for me.  I cannot prove that life begins at that instant, but, I BELIEVE that it does. It is MY  unshakable belief without need for proof or evidence.

More than 50 million babies have been slaughtered since the US Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade back in 1973.  Nobody even really talks that much about this issue anymore.  For many it is NOT an issue and for those for whom it IS an issue, there are the threats, spoken and unspoken, to motivate them to remain silent and/or hold their peace.

“A Department of Homeland Security report that was released in January 2012 says that if you are “anti-abortion”, you are a potential terrorist.  Unfortunately, there have also been other government reports that have also identified “anti-abortion” protesters as potential threats.”  SOURCE:  http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/19-facts-about-abortion-in-america-that-should-make-you-very-sick

Today America has become a vast “killing field” where the blood of innocents has been, and continues to be, spilled my the millions. Call it infanticide, if you will, but it has become a full blown massacre. The blood of those innocents has stained America with an eternal guilt that can never be cleansed from our nation’s soul.

Consider this:  “America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts — a child — as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters.


And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign.”
  — Mother Teresa

I repeat, the stain on America’s soul is indelible.  There will be a day of reckoning from which we cannot escape.

The Obama chronicles: The deceptions, the murders and continuing ObamaGov terrorism … Sher Zieve

The Obama chronicles: The deceptions, the murders and continuing ObamaGov terrorism

By Sher Zieve

While Obama and his syndicate continue to gut the USA economically, openly steal from and continue to subjugate we US citizens, send millions and even billions of taxpayer dollars to the real terrorists (the Muslim Brotherhood and its myriad evil spawns) and remove US citizens’ freedoms while giving more freedoms to jihadists and illegal aliens, Obama continues to work Flash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torchediligently to terrorize America and its people with one manufactured crisis after another. Remember, chaos is still the tyrant’s best friend and keeps people watching the illusory ‘bright shiny thing’ while the real-and-far-worse thing is being implemented by Obama and his criminal buddies. Realistically, in order to buy into all of the continuing-to-be-manufactured false and/or manipulated crises one’s disbelief must be suspended far beyond this realm of existence. In other words, you have to be a complete lunatic to actually buy into the refuse Obama is spreading in front of you.

Obama, his entrenched cabal and his collaborators are veritably drunk with their fortified wine of power.

Briefly…very briefly as there is way too much to cover in one column…here are some of the major lowlights Obama has brought to our shores since he usurped the Office of POTUS Obama:

1. Immediately issued his first Executive Order to permanently seal and remove from public inspection all of his personal data including – but not necessarily limited to – his birth records, educational records and passport records

2. Appointed childhood friend Timothy Geithner to the position of Secretary of the Treasury and immediately began looting said treasury (our treasury); including sending billions to overseas banks, countries unfriendly to the USA and ObamaBuddies wherever they were

3. Instructed DHS to issue documents calling Christians, soldiers returning from war and conservative Constitutionalists terrorists and deleted any references to the real Islamic terrorists from US government documents. Note: Obama has continued this practice and recently had his wholly-owned SPLC issue a “report” stating that US Patriot Groups are the domestic terrorists. There is, again, no mention of Islam as being terrorists…although its members continue to enact the greatest number of terrorist incidents in the world

4. Began destroying the US economy and job market via massive new regulations (there are now 8.5 million fewer jobs than when Obama took the Office of POTUS) and began discontinuing real energy in the USA

5. With the Democrat-controlled Senate and behind closed doors, forced through ObamaCare against the will of the majority of US citizens and no real discussions with Republican Senators

6. With help from double-agent Sen. John McCain, Obama zeroed in on ending due process (i4th Amendment to the US Constitution) via his changes to the NDAA Bill as well as instituting a new anti-free speech bill and with turncoat John Boehner’s willing assistance. HR 347 passed, which disallows anyone protesting Obama within his earshot or eyesight. This is what all dictators./tyrants affect

7. Instituted a new push to end the 2nd Amendment by unconstitutionally taxing and regulating gun manufacturers out of business, while having the government buy up as much ammunition and magazines – billions of rounds now – in order to keep them away from the people of this country. BTW, you are aware the ObamaGov is using your/our taxpayer money to affect this against you…right?

8. And, please let’s not forget the assassinations of the US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, his aide and 2 Navy Seals that tried to save them. To date, the Obama syndicate has been in cover-up/lying mode since Obama allowed the Benghazi assassinations of US citizens to proceed…and these were his appointees. Do leftists really think he won’t allow or directly kill them (drones…remember?) if they ever get out of line and irritate him?

9. Recently, Obama’s government schools have taken aim at school children (as young as 5 years of age) by suspending or expelling them if they even use a sentence that has the word “gun” in it or point their tiny fingers in the shape of an imaginary gun. And, also recently, Eric Holder’s DOJ argued in court that children do not have the “right” to a Mother! I think we know where this will be going, as Holder has hinted at government ownership of children…not parents. Note: There are so many of these since the beginning of 2013 that it has become difficult to keep up with the incidents. But, I have included as many as space would allow below this column

Question:

What sorts of mentally defective/low IQ individuals are in charge of “teaching” our young children? To me, this is a severely blatant attempt to ‘socially engineer’ them into the fear of even the slightest mention of guns and is designed to send them running and screaming away from anyone who says the “g” word. For those of you who voted for Obama not once but, twice, is this really what you anticipated from your dictator-in-chief?

With Obama and his syndicate running the USA off the cliff of survivability, we are living in the most dangerous times in US history. Republicans (RINOs) whose masks have finally fallen to the ground are enthusiastically supporting thie master in the destruction of America. Note: I suspect these have been promised a ‘rich reward’ of governorships of districts, as Obama begins the process of dissolving US States in preparation for the planned Islamic caliphate. However, unless they are male and unless they convert to Islam…well, I think we all know what follows that.

We are now out of time, folks. I truly hope and pray we are as prepared as is possible for what is to come. Pray to God and repent. It is – and has always been – our only true hope.

“For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death” – Psalm 48:14

Immigration Reform = Democratic Control of the US for Generations … J. D. Longstreet

Immigration Reform = Democratic Control of the US for Generations

A Commentary by J. D. LongstreetFlash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche
***************

I sometimes wonder why I even bother!

It is frustrating to write column after column about illegal immigration, about amnesty for illegal aliens and how that amnesty will most certainly benefit the Democratic Party and crush the Republican Party out of existence while I watch the GOP continuing to commit suicide.  THIS time, however, the GOP is insuring their party’s death by promoting passage of the Immigration Reform Bill soon to be before Congress and rammed down the throat of America much as Obamacare.

We have told our readers and warned our readers for years that the ultimate aim of immigration reform was — and remains —  a tool to secure control of the US government for the Communist/Labor/Democratic Party.
50512-handholdingtorch
I cringe when I see a man many believe will be the GOP’s Presidential candidate in 2016 making the rounds of the talk shows on radio and TV and pushing for passage of the Immigration Reform bill.   Has he lost his mind?  Does he not understand the voting rights acquired by those given amnesty under the Immigration Reform bill will be used AGAINST the GOP as that huge block of Hispanic voters will most certainly vote for the democratic candidates from City Hall, to the Congress, to the White House. It is a given.  All we have to do is look at the record to see that this is exactly the conduct to expect.

In an article entitled:  “Immigration reform could be bonanza for Democrats” by Emily Schultheis at Politico.com, Ms. Schultheis says the following:

“The immigration proposal pending in Congress would transform the nation’s political landscape for a generation or more — pumping as many as 11 million new Hispanic voters into the electorate a decade from now in ways that, if current trends hold, would produce an electoral bonanza for Democrats and cripple Republican prospects in many states they now win easily.”  SOURCE:  http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/immigration-reform-could-upend-electoral-college-90478.html#ixzz2ROVOU68P

The only surprise here is that ANYONE would be surprised!

“Historically, however, there is no mistaking the reality that most Hispanics trend Democratic during their early years of voting.” SOURCE:  http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/immigration-reform-could-upend-electoral-college-90478_Page2.html#ixzz2RQD85okm

Consider this from “Super-Economy:”  “The Hispanic vote is now finally large enough to win Democrats elections. Unlike what Karl Rove, Jeb Bush and Fox News might claim, this is almost entirely due to the growth of the Hispanic population share, not due to Hispanics having moved against Republicans. Hispanics have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in every election during the last three decades.”  SOURCE:  http://super-economy.blogspot.com/2012/11/why-hispanics-are-natural-democrats-and_12.html

In the very same article we learn:  “… there has never been a majority of Hispanics voting for a Republican president. This even when Republicans have supported or even enacted an immigration Amnesty, the issue most commonly cited as key to garner Hispanic support. The variation in Republican support is fairly small. What turned out to be decisive in 2012 was hence the increase in the number of Hispanic voters.”  SOURCE:  http://super-economy.blogspot.com/2012/11/why-hispanics-are-natural-democrats-and_12.html

Then there is this from Tea Party Connect:  “The burden of illegal immigration on our already overstressed welfare system has been widely documented. Some towns in California have even been taken over by illegal immigrant drug cartels. The disease, crime and overcrowding brought by illegal immigrants places a heavy burden on every segment of society and every level of government, threatening to split this country apart at the seams. In the meantime, radical leftist efforts to grant illegal immigrants citizenship guarantee a huge pool of new democrat voters. With little border control, terrorists can also filter in.”  SOURCE:  http://www.teapartyconnect.com/102/the-cloward-piven-strategy-explained/

Then there is this from an article by Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh at Canada Free Press:   “Illegal immigrants believe in bigger government and welfare as a source of wellbeing and success. They become new loyal Democrat voters who could ultimately shift the balance of power in our country to Democrats, without any checks and balances.”  SOURCE:  http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54735

Marinka Peschmann, also in an article at Canada Free Press, said: “Let’s cut to the chase. If the Gang of Eight’s so-called immigration reform legislation becomes law, expect the number of illegal aliens that will be legalized in a broken, crime riddled agency, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), to explode. Everyone from family members, step children, gang members and drunk drivers are welcome to apply.”  SOURCE:  http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54653

Look.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what’s going on with the Immigration Reform bill.  It is a raw power grab by the democrats to solidify their hold on the US government for as far into the future as the eye can see.  And, judging from their recent efforts, the Republican Party is eager to help them do it.

Get Ready For A Nuclear Iran! … J. D. Longstreet

Get Ready For A Nuclear Iran!Flash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche
Has Iran Already Crossed the Red Line?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

****************

According to The Israeli National News: “Former Military Intelligence head, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, said Tuesday that “Iran has already crossed Israel’s new ‘red line'” regarding nuclear weapons development.

Yadlin, who is the Head of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), said that in the summer, Iran will reach a distance of one or two months between a decision and a bomb.” That is, it will be able to build a nuclear bomb within a month or two of deciding to do so.

“This is a breakthrough range that will make it very difficult to stop Iran, when it decides to have a bomb.”SOURCE:  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/167408#.UXaFQErJIWE

In the same article Yadlin is quoted as saying:  “Negotiations can succeed, he added, if the U.S. creates a credible military option. This will be achieved if the U.S. prepares for a surgical strike for stopping the nuclear program and makes clear that it will be able to deal with the escalation that will follow such a strike.” SOURCE:   http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/167408#.UXaFQErJIWE

The long and the short of it is — Israel — AND– the US are screwed!

This, dear reader, is what you get when the free world is led by a lamentably naive golden-throated narcissistic Marxist who never misses a chance to demonstrate his unaffected simplicity and lack of guile and worldly experience when it comes to world politics and global leadership.

Allow me to spell it out plainly:  Unless Israel takes the reins in its teeth and launches an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, Iran WILL build a nuclear bomb — and all the world will be held hostage to their fanatical Islamic despotism.

If Israel will not, or cannot, mount a successful attack, and Iran acquires the bomb, the fault will lie squarely at the feet of President Obama — and nowhere else.

President Obama is perhaps the least prepared and least qualified person to ever hold the office of President of the United States — and it shows.  Oh, HOW it shows.

By his refusal of global leadership the world is in chaos. Heck, the US is in near chaos.  And it is not going to get better until the US and the world get the kind of leadership necessary to screw the lid down on trouble making rogue nations like Iran and North Korea and read the riot act to aggressive nations seeking hegemony in their regions of the globe. That is not going to happen as long as Obama occupies the Oval Office.

Can anyone define Obama’s foreign policy?  Is there one?  His diplomatic stumbles around the globe give the impression any foreign policy of his administration is made up on the fly with very little real thought.

Today, we stand on the cusp of nuclear war. Think that is too strong?  Want to take the chance that North Korea has not managed to develop a small nuclear warhead they can mount on the tip of their long range missile?  Want to take that chance?  Because that is exactly what Obama is doing.  And it is YOUR life at risk, and the lives of your loved ones.

We KNOW the DPRK has nuclear weapons. We KNOW Iran is rapidly approaching the final development of a nuclear bomb.  We KNOW that Iran and North Korea are working in tandem and have been for years.  Are you willing to take the chance that IF North Korea has a nuclear warhead for a missile they won’t provide one to Iran?   Iran’s  problem with developing a nuclear missile to strike Israel would be solved overnight.

The Obama administration exudes weakness and draws enemies attracted by that weakness like flies to a dung heap.

Just in the past few days we have had one terrorist attack on a major US city and a would-be attack on a major transportation rail line between Canada and the US was foiled by Canadian authorities with the assistance of US authorities.

Just as sharks can smell blood in the water for miles and miles, America’s enemies can detect the “odor” of weakness half a globe away.  Now, as we have seen,  they can and will act on that perceived weakness on our own soil, either by terrorist attacks or by lobbing a nuclear missile across the Pacific Ocean to take out Honolulu, Los Angles, Seattle, Portland, or Anchorage, Alaska.

On top of all his other mistakes, Obama has committed the US military to Africa.  No pun intended, but Africa is a black hole just like those in space.  It will suck anything and everything that gets near it into its darknessand leach it dry.

There is a reason the European colonial powers gave up and left Africa a long time ago. Their colonies were slowly bankrupting them!  There is no wining in Africa because there is nothing there TO win. Only Africa can save Africa.  And they are not ready to join the modern world this century.  Maybe in  another hundred years, or so.

So, it provides no comfort knowing that Iran is closing on its desire to have its very own nuclear bomb, which it intends to drop on Israel and the United States at the earliest opportunity.

It should come as no surprise when the Obama administration rolls out their plans for “containment of a nuclear Iran.”  Many have felt for some time that was Obama’s ultimate goal all the while.

Understand: The Arab nations are scared witless of the Persian nation. If Iran is allowed to possess a nuclear bomb, expect all the Arab nations in the region to go nuclear almost overnight — in self defense.  They won’t waste time with developing their own nuclear programs, they will simply purchase nuclear bombs and missiles and be done with it.

Now — allow me to ask you — how much safer will YOU feel if and when the entire Middle East is armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs and missiles?

This is what we get with the Three Stooges of American foreign policy, Obama, Hagel, and Kerry in charge. Neville Chamberlain would, indeed, be, oh, so proud!

The EPA Snake Pit … Alan Caruba

The EPA Snake Pit

 

 

By Alan CarubaFlash Point 2016 Logo with Wreath and Torche

Under President Obama, two women have been the director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Carol Browner, who served in the Clinton administration and was one of the “czars” Obama appointed; her acolyte Lisa Jackson, and up for the post is Gina McCarthy. Browner and Jackson went out of their way to conceal their internal communications from Congress and McCarthy lied to the committee considering her nomination.

How bad is the EPA? The Society of Environmental Journalists, on the occasion of the April 11 hearing on McCarthy’s nomination, released a statement that said, “The Obama administration has been anything but transparent in its dealings with reporters seeking information, interviews and clarification on a host of environmental, health and public lands issues.” The SEJ accused the EPA of being “one of the most closed, opaque agencies to the press.”

 

Apparently, the primary consideration for the job of EPA Director is an intense desire to destroy the use of hydrocarbons, oil, coal and natural gas, for transportation and all other forms of energy on which our economy depends. Obama, when campaigning in 2008, made it clear he wanted end the use of coal to generate electricity. At the time, fifty percent of all electricity was produced by coal and now that figure is in decline as coal-fired plants are being forced to close thanks to EPA regulations.

 

If Ms. McCarthy has her way, the cost of driving cars and trucks will go up in the name of protecting the health of Americans. As Paul Driessen, a senior policy advisor for the Committee For a Constructive Tomorrow, recently noted, “Since 1970, America’s cars have eliminated 99% of pollutants that once came out of tailpipes.” Joel Schwartz, co-author of “Air Quality in America”, points out, “Today’s cars are essentially zero-emission vehicles, compared to 1970 models.” The EPA’s latest attack on drivers is the implementation of “Tier 3 rules” intended to reduce sulfur levels to achieve zero air quality or health benefits.

 

Suffice to say that the air and water in America is clean, very clean. Whatever health hazards existed in the 1970s no longer exist. Like all bureaucracies, the EPA now exists to expand its budget and its control over our lives. The Heritage Foundation has calculated that Obama’s EPA’s twenty “major” regulations—those that cost $100 million or more annually—could cost the U.S. more than $36 billion per year. Obama’s EPA has generated 1,920 new regulations.

 

Don’t think of the EPA as a government agency. It is a weapon of economic destruction.

 

This has not gone unnoticed. A recent Wall Street Journal opinion by John Barrasso, a Republican Senator from Wyoming, noted that “During President Obama’s first term, EPA policies discouraged energy exploration, buried job creators under red tape, and deliberately hid information from the public.”

 

“Many EPA regulations,” said Sen. Barrasso, “chased microscopic benefits at maximum cost,” noting for example that “The EPA has proposed dropping the acceptable amount of ozone in the air from the 75 parts per billion allowed today to 60 or 70 parts per billion. The agency concedes that the rule would have a minimal effect on American’s health, but says it would cost as much as $90 billion a year. A study by the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation estimated it would eliminate up to 7.3 million jobs in a wide variety of industries, including refining.”

 

The other sector in the EPA’s bull’s eye is agriculture. Not content with laying siege to auto manufacturers, oil refineries, coal-fired plants, and all other energy users that might generate carbon dioxide and other so-called greenhouse gases, Barrasso noted that the EPA “has gathered personal information about tens of thousands of livestock farmers and the locations of their operations” which it then shared with environmental groups.

 

Writing in The Daily Caller, Henry Miller, a physician and molecular biologist and currently the Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, characterized the EPA as “a miasma populated by the most radical, disaffected and anti-industry discards from other agencies,” adding that there was “entrenched institutional paranoia and an oppositional world view.” 

 

“Unscientific policies and regulatory grandiosity and excess,” wrote Dr. Miller, “are not EPA’s only failings; neglecting to weigh costs and benefits is shockingly common, noting that “The EPA’s repeated failures should not come as a surprise because the agency has long been a haven for scientifically insupportable policies perpetrated by anti-technology ideologues.”

 

Marlo Lewis, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, writing in Forbes magazine, pointed out Gina McCarthy, the nominee to direct the EPA, “has a history of misleading Congress and the public about her agency’s greenhouse gas regulations. “At a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in October 2011, McCarthy denied motor vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards are “related to” fuel economy standards. In doing so,” said Lewis, “she denied plain facts she must know to be true. She did so under oath.”

 

“The EPA has no statutory authority to regulate fuel economy. More importantly, the federal Energy Policy and Conservation Act prohibits states from adopting laws or regulations ‘related to’ fuel economy.”

 

The point of this exercise is demonstrate that the EPA is the very definition of a “rogue agency” for which neither laws, nor science, are of any consequence as it pursues policies that do incalculable harm at a time when the nation is deep in debt and in need of economic growth, not regulatory strangulation.
