Civilization Jihad

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 7, 2017: Op Ed # 364

Former Special Agent John Guandolo, USNA '89, FBI (USMC) in the below listed article “Understanding The Threat” reveals what the true nature of CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood, The Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, ISIS, Al Q’ieda, Hamas, Hizballah, and Radical Islamic Terrorists' goals are.  

 

For the last 8 years, with the help of their appointees in the Obama administration, they jumped at the opportunity to destabilize the Republic with their misleading explanations of who they are.  Over the last 200 days, they have taken advantage of the naive and gullible members of the Trump administration to cover up the true nature of their goal.  Their true goal is to install Sharia Law as a replacement for the US Constitution.

 

In the last 8 years, The Muslim Brotherhood and The Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups (CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, MSA, ICNA, MAS, MPAC, and IIIT) were able to create a very dangerous Firth Column.  With the assistance of the Obama administration members of The Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups have been appointed and imbedded themselves in highly sensitive and classified positions in just about every agency of government including but not limited to DOD, DHS, FBI, CIA, NSA, NSC, STATE, JUSTCE, the US Armed Forces, and Intelligence Agencies, similar to what the Communist Party did in the 1940s and the 1950s. 

 

The manner in which the members of The Muslim Brotherhood and their Front Groups can be exposed and removed from sensitive positions in government, is to do what the US government did in the 1940s through the 1960s.  All employees of the US Government, and applicants to be officers in the US Armed Forces were required to complete applications for employment and sign that they were not members of the Communist and Nazi Parties.  

 

Subsequently, any employees of military personnel were placed in highly sensitive and classified positions in the US government they had to sit through a Polygraph exams.  The simple question that should be asked of all personnel in the Trump administration when a Polygraph exam is conducted, is to ask if they agree that the US Constitution is the only governing law of the land and that Sharia Law does not govern any residents and citizens of the United States.

Civilization Jihad, Propaganda & Ignorance

 

 

 

https://www.understandingthethreat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/islamisthereligionofwar11-vi-1-300x192.jpg

 

This war of the Global Islamic Movement versus the Free World is primarily a war of narratives.  One narrative says what ISIS, Al Qaeda and all of the other jihadi organizations are doing has nothing to do with Islam.

 

The other side of this coin is called truth.

 

As UTT has documented in articles herehereherehere and here and in videos herehere, and here, there is only one Islam and one sharia.  All sharia mandates jihad until the world is under Islamic rule, and sharia only defines jihad as "warfare against non-Muslims."

 

There is no other "version" of Islam.

 

https://www.understandingthethreat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Screen-Shot-2017-08-06-at-9.23.13-PM-300x212.pnghttps://www.understandingthethreat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Screen-Shot-2017-08-06-at-9.23.43-PM-300x243.png

 

The heads of state of all 56 Muslim nations on earth are party to the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation), which approved the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights on Islam and served it to the United Nations in 1993.  The Cairo Declaration officially states the Islamic world legally defines "Human Rights" as the imposition of sharia on the entire world.

 

Therefore, the leaders of all Islamic nations on earth have the same understanding of human rights as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

 

https://www.understandingthethreat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Screen-Shot-2017-08-06-at-9.27.06-PM-300x211.pnghttps://www.understandingthethreat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Screen-Shot-2017-08-06-at-9.27.24-PM-300x178.png

 

The Islamic Movement's primary strategy is to control the narrative about Islam in order to keep the very people who need the truth to do their jobs ignorant about Islam.  This includes leaders in the key sectors of our society:  political, media, educational, religious, national security, military and law enforcement.

 

Propagating a counter-factual understanding of Islam allows the enemy to wage Civilization Jihad by OUR hands, and get our leaders to do their bidding for them.

 

In 2005, the U.S. government wrote the constitutions for Iraq and Afghanistan creating Islamic republics under sharia.  We did that and in the process achieved Al Qaeda's goals for them.  That is Civilization Jihad by OUR hands.

 

Propaganda to support the enemy's strategy comes from a variety of sources.  "Moderate Muslims" are one of the most dangerous groups which continues to be pushed to the forefront as the "saviors" of this war.

 

The first prominent "moderate" Muslim in America shoved down our throats was Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was the Islamic advisor President Clinton who created the Muslim chaplain program for the Department of Defense.  Alamoudi turned out to be an Al Qaeda financier involved in a plot with Al Qaeda operatives to kill Saudi Prince Abdullah.  He is in jail now.

 

The next Muslim we were told by the media was the "new face of moderate Islam" was Anwar al Awlaki. When he was not giving talks about Islam at the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon, he gave Islamic legal counsel to 9/11 hijackers, Major Nidal Hassan (Ft Hood jihadi), and others, and was the leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen.   The United States killed him with a drone strike in 2011.  He is dead now.

 

Now we have "moderate" Muslims all around us being used to "educate" our leaders about Islam.  We have suit-wearing jihadis like Mohamed Magid, Sayyid Syeed, and Salam al Marayati, who are all Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas leaders, warmly welcomed into churches, government offices, and public functions.

 

Then we have Raheel Raza, Qanta Ahmed, Zuhdi Jasser and others who propagate the message that "their version of Islam" does not condone what the "terrorists" says it does.  They tell us they are "devout Muslims" who are "anti-sharia."

 

This is irreconcilable nonsense.

 

The difference is that leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, no matter how nice they dress or talk, are enemies of the United States and should be treated as such.

 

Raheel Raza may truly believe what she says and may be a pleasant woman.  The point is that her message supports the enemy's narrative.  Since this is primarily a war of narratives, that puts her in the enemy camp, even if she does not intend to be there.

 

The emotional connection many Americans have to the likes of Raza and the others make the truth of this reality difficult for some to swallow.  Nonetheless, it is the truth.  Some are unable to detach their emotions from their intellect and see that to be a tool of the enemy makes a person an asset of the enemy, whether he/she intends that or not.

 

When it comes to officials inside the Trump administration, the problem also becomes more difficult for people to receive because of the fierce loyalty of President Trump's supporters.

 

With regards to Mr. Trump's National Security Advisor Herbert McMaster, UTT does not dispute his war record or his desire to do what he believes is best for his country.  Desire has little to do with this.

 

One does not have to know or understand he/she is a tool for our enemy.

 

As UTT documented in last week's article here and in our recent video here, Mr. McMaster is ignorant of Islamic doctrine (sharia) and does not appear to concur with Richard Higgins' assessment that a coalition of Marxists and Islamists are working together to overthrow the United States, despite a mountain of evidence to support this reality.

 

Thus, when Mr. McMaster keeps people inside the White House who he believes have a more "measured" perspective yet are also ignorant of the Islamic threat - many of whom support former President Obama - and he purges the all of the people who do, in fact, understand Islamic doctrine and how the enemy intends to win this war - like Richard Higgins - that is Civilization Jihad by OUR hands, whether Mr. McMaster knows it or not.

 

Anyone who is unaware that Islamic sharia supports what ISIS and Al Qaeda are doing and that the Muslim Brotherhood's by-laws and strategic plans call for the overthrow of the U.S. government does not understand this war.  That makes such a person ignorant or complicit.  Either way that person need not work in the national security realm.

 

Anyone who gives a platform to "moderate Muslims" or anyone else who speaks untruthfully about Islam serves the objectives of our enemy and, therefore, stands in the enemy's camp.

 

 

San Diego Unified School Board Forced to Reverse Sharia Indoctrination Policy In City Schools

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 1, 2017: Op Ed # 363

The below listed article, explains why a coalition of San Diego Patriotic organizations, families of San Diego City School students, San Diego registered voters in the Democrat and Republican parties, leaders of the Christian & Jewish communities, members of Veterans Organizations, retired Law Enforcement Officers, Women Volunteers In Politics, retired military personnel, and the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC came together to support The Freedom of Conscious Defense Fund (FCDF) Federal Law Suit filed by Charles S. LiMandri, Esq. against the San Diego Unified School Board to oppose its partnership with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to indoctrinate impressionable young students in the San Diego City Schools in Islam and Sharia Law.  

 

CAIR was identified as an International Terrorist Organization and outlawed in 2014 by the United Arab Emirates.  CAIR was listed by the FBI as an Unindicted Co-Conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Terrorist Trial for supporting the funding of Terrorist Groups.  The Muslim Brotherhood (MB), founded in Egypt in 1928, and its Front Groups have been outlawed and designated as dangerous International Terrorist Organizations by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Bahrein, the United Arab Emirates, and Russia.  Israel, Canada, and the United Kingdom are considering designating the MB and its Front Groups as International Terrorist Organizations. 

 

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, support ISIS, Al Q’ieda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, and many other Radical Islamic Terrorist Organizations which have been trying to install Sharia Courts in the US in order to settle legal disputes under Sharia Law.  The Muslim Brotherhood has been able to install Sharia Courts in England, France, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, etc.; establishing Sharia Law in the United States would be a violation of the US Constitution.  

 

CAIR formed a partnership with the leftists who they helped elect to the San Diego Unified School Board (SDUSB), to indoctrinate young impressionable San Diego students in Sharia Law and the religion of Islam.  The SDUSB presided over the replacement of history books that once accurately spelled out the 240 year History of the United States.  The SDUSB purchased new school books with corrupted version of US History.

 

The new US History books often criticize the US, eliminates courageous stories about the Founding Fathers, does not explain the background about George Washington who was the Father of the nation, does not provide details of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, does not point out that the US was the first country in history to eliminate slavery, that the US freed millions of people from tyrannical dictators, that the US returned lands it gained control in wars to the people of those countries, prevented the persecution of people because of their religion, empowered subjugated people to seek their right of self-determination, championed freedom of speech, etc. 

 

The new teaching curriculum in Islam and Sharia Law was created, under the false guise that it was required to prevent the bullying of Muslim students.  It was not necessary because there had been a very effective anti-bullying regulation in effect in the San Diego City Schools for many years.  The Islamic indoctrination teaching curriculum was in violation of US Laws and the US Constitution.  

 

The Muslim Brotherhood formed many Front Groups to give itself cover while trying to establish Sharia Law in the US, by creating CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, MSA, ICNA, MAS, MPAC, IIIT, etc.  Those Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups are all unified to stealthily supporting the establishment of a Fifth Column, to operate within US Government Agencies, similar to how the Communist Party did so in the 1940s and the 1950s.  Over the last 8 years, Obama appointed thousands of members of the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups to many very sensitive and highly classified positions throughout the US government (they still populate many agencies of the US government and should be removed).   

 

CAIR’s founder Omar Ahmad stated “CAIR must one day dominate the US.”  He also said “The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam is the only accepted religion on Earth.”  Linda Sarsour, a convicted terrorist and mouth piece for CAIR, called for “Jihad” against the President of the United States, and said Muslims must not assimilate.  To assimilate would be to support the universal principles Americans adhere to by becoming an integral part of the Republic as immigrants have done for over 100 years.  Sharia does not support universal principals Americans adhere to, i. e. support women’s equality, support freedom of religion, endorse American Patriotism, and support the US Constitution.  

According to a Pew Research Study, 20% of the 900,000 Middle East Muslim Refugees that Obama resettled in 187 US cities over the last 8 years, and their second generation offspring, refuse to assimilate into US society like the millions of immigrants before them have embraced the United States over the last 100 years.  The Muslim refugees who refused to assimilate are fertile ground for Radical Imams, recruited from Pakistan who preach a radical version of Islam in thousands mosques in the US. 
Over the last 8 years, many second generation refugees with US passports were recruited, funded to travel to the Middle East and Africa, and trained by ISIS and Al Q’ieda.  Instead of immediately arresting those returning newly trained Radical Islamic Terrorist with US passports, they were allowed to re-enter the US unimpeded for 8 years.

In Europe, the Muslim Brotherhood established thousands of enclaves in many European cities, ruled only by Sharia Law where Sharia Courts had been established.  Those courts ruled on legal disputes that occurred in the general population, including rendering decisions that affected Christians, and Jews, with final legal decisions governed only by Sharia Law, not by established civil laws in those European countries.

 

The Federal Law Suit against the San Diego Unified School Board, discussed below, is the first step in the list of actions necessary to stop CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood from changing public school teaching curriculum to indoctrinate young impressionable students in Sharia Law and the Islam Religion.  The fight to protect American students and the US Constitution is far from over, and will require future vigilance.    

 

Americans citizens should educate their fellow citizens about the serious threat Sharia Law poses to the governing laws of the US and to the US Constitution.  We encouraged you to forward this Op Ed to those in your address book, in order to alert them to CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal to teach Sharia and Islam in city schools, in cities across the nation.

Citizens for Quality Education-San Diego

"The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." Abraham Lincoln

In a stunning move, not only does SDUSD rescind the Anti-Islamophobia initiative, the School Board distances itself from the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The July 25, 2017 School Board meeting was flooded with pro-CAIR supporters who petitioned the trustees to reconsider dropping their formal partnership with the dubious civil rights organization. Instead the trustees turned to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for support and presented a more inclusive initiative that protects all children from bullying. SDUSD will now focus its attention on ADL programs such A World of Difference and No Place for Hate. CQE-SD wishes to thank FCDF Counsel Team members for their hours of research that produced a formidable complaint against the district. Special thanks to Charles LiMandri and Daniel Piedra for their special attention to this vital cause.

San Diego Unified School District Rescinds Anti-Islamophobia Initiative in Response to FCDF’s Lawsuit

By FCDF Staff, 7/26/17

[Read More...]
 

KEY POINTS:

  • San Diego Unified School District’s Board of Education scrapped an initiative that sought to provide, among other items, special benefits to Muslim students, permit the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to teach students and provide educational materials, and revise curricula to promote a more positive and inclusive portrayal of Islam;
  • Board’s decision is a result of FCDF’s federal lawsuit filed on behalf of five families challenging the constitutionality of SDUSD’s policy favoring Muslim students and its partnership with CAIR;
  • Charles LiMandri, FCDF President & Chief Counsel, commented:

“Last night, the School Board recognized the importance of protecting students of all religious beliefs from bullying as well as keeping our children safe from the influence of divisive outside forces. While we are pleased with the Board’s decision, we remain disappointed that it waited until a federal lawsuit had to be filed to implement a fair and equal anti-bullying policy that protects all students.”

BACKGROUND:

Last night, San Diego Unified School District’s (SDUSD) Board of Education overturned its “anti-Islamophobia” bullying prevention initiative and adopted a new program entitled “No Place for Hate,” which was developed by the Anti-Defamation League and will focus on protecting students of all religious beliefs. In addition, the Board voted to back away from another formal partnership with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The Board’s reversal is a response to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) on behalf of five families and two organization that challenged the initiative’s constitutionality.

On April 5, 2017, the Board approved an Anti-Islamophobia initiative purportedly to combat the bullying of Muslim students. Among other benefits, the initiative instructed teachers and staff to promote Muslim culture, create safe spaces for Muslim students, and vet and revise curricula to ensure a more “positive” and “inclusive” portrayal of Islam. In addition, the initiative sought to formalize SDUSD’s longtime collaboration with CAIR, and it authorized the group to provide training materials, teach students about Islam during class time, and pass out religious materials.

On April 27, Charles LiMandri, FCDF President & Chief Counsel, emailed a detailed, three-page letter to each SDUSD board member and Superintendent Marten, informing them that the initiative, when implemented, would “likely violate the U.S. Constitution, and consequently would invite time-consuming and expensive legal challenges.” LiMandri recommended that the Board rescind the anti-Islamophobia initiative and pursue an anti-bullying measure that protected students of all religions.

SDUSD officials did not respond to the letter, nor did they rescind the policy at either of the two board meetings that were held prior to the filing of the original complaint on May 22, 2017. On June 28, FCDF filed an amended complaint adding additional state law claims, including violations of California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act and several provisions of the California Education Code.

LiMandri commented:

“As part of a quality education, students should learn about all religions. However, allowing an outside Islamic group to dictate how and what students learn about Islam undermines our school children’s right to an objective and unbiased understanding of history and world cultures.

While we hope for a reasonable, final resolution that avoids further litigation, we will continue – for our schoolchildren’s sake – to hold the Board to a standard in accordance with the U.S. Constitution and California state law.”

STATUS:

FCDF has been communicating with SDUSD’s counsel with the goal of addressing the lawsuit’s allegations without further litigation; however, it is still waiting for SDUSD to respond to FCDF’s California Public Records Act request (submitted nearly three months ago) regarding the initiative and the district’s relationship with CAIR. FCDF expects the next step to occur within 1-2 weeks.

Restoring the Military’s Moral Underpinnings

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 27, 2017: Op Ed # 362

Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., USNA '52, USN (Ret), former Commander US Pacific Fleet, discusses the need to restore the “Military’s Moral Underpinning” in his below listed Op Ed.  It is so appropriate and timely in light of President Trump’s decision to terminate the induction of transgender people into the US Armed Forces. 

 

Terminating transgender people from serving in the US Armed Forces is another of the President Trump’s important steps, to change the disastrous policies Obama imposed on the US Armed Forces by force feeding his “Social Experiment On Diversity” into the US military over the last 8 years.  

 

President Trump stated that, after consulting "with my generals and military experts," that the US government "will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military."  

The over 2 million military personnel serving in the US Armed Forces and Reserve Force, do not want to conform to the strange transgender accommodations imposed upon them by Obama (men sleeping in women compartments, women using male bathrooms, males showering with women, personnel being absent from their units for extended periods going through sex change operations, increasing the work load on everyone else in the undermanned unit, etc.)  

 

The critical issue that Obama completely ignored for the last 8 years, was that no policy should ever be instituted in the US military, if it degrades the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces.

 

The destabilizing “Social Experiment On Diversity” was forced upon the US military by Obama over the last 8 years.  That policy degraded the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, degraded unit readiness, destabilized unit cohesion, and damaged unit moral.
 

The US Armed Forces is not an organization for progressives and liberals to experiment with by enacting one social experiment after another.  The US military is also not an equal opportunity employer.  The US Military, like the all other strong & effective military organizations worldwide, is in reality, a dictatorship that has one focus and one focus only, to defend their countries from all enemies, foreign and domestic.  

 

In order to allow transgender people to enlist in the US Armed Forces, Obama had to repeal President Clinton’s policy of  “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”  A 2014 Pentagon study reported that Obama’s elimination of  “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” resulted in thousands of gay members joining the US Armed Forces, which resulted in:

 

  1. Thousands of young straight military recruits being raped in their barracks, many of those straight military recruits went AWOL to avoid being raped in their barracks at night.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/may/20/victims-of-sex-assaults-in-military-are-mostly-sil/

 

The decision by Obama to approve the enlistment of transgender people into the US Armed Forces was another of destabilizing decisions that have:

 

  1. Created a massive compulsory retraining program for over 2 million members of the US Armed Forces and the reserve component of the US Armed Forces, as well as for millions of civilian employees of the US Armed Forces, requiring that they endure many hours of transgender “Sensitivity Training” classes, and “Politically Correct” training classes at prohibitive costs in terms of time and cost.  Instead, military personnel should be going to classes to train them to be more efficient war fighters.
  2. Burdened the US Armed Forces with millions of dollars in costs for gender change surgeries.  How does gender change surgeries win wars?  Often transgender people join the US military to get the free gender change surgeries which they would not have otherwise afford.
  3. Resulted in medical costs per transgender enlistee that far exceeded the cost of rehabilitating personnel with serious combat injuries, and their extended hospital stays, taken the scarce hospital availabilities that would have normally been required for military personnel with legitimate service connected injuries.
  4. Extended the time required for transgender people to go through a series of surgeries, resulting in newly enrolled transgender personnel spending years in gender change surgeries and extended recovery periods, making them unavailable to serve for many years.
  5. Resulted in the enrollment of 6,630 transgender people during the Obama administration.  The JAG Corps spends an inordinate amount of time dealing with multiple complex legal issues affecting transgender personnel in comparison to an average enrollee.  The JAG Corps  is already short staffed, and has a myriad of legal issues normally affecting their services branches, without being saddled with issues affecting transgender members.
  6. Resulted in massive bureaucratic problems, in additional administrative costs of $8 million annually for 6,630 transgender members (according to a RAND study), disrupting the smooth running operation of boot camps, the four Military Service Academies, every military base in the world, on hundreds of US Navy ships, in recruiting offices for all service branches in thousands of US cities across the nation, and in the Pentagon, in comparison to the benefits that 6,630 transgender members, out of 2,092,900 active duty and reserve personnel, provide for the US Armed Forces. 
  7. These gender-confused individuals are a tiny fraction of the 350 million Americans, yet Obama expected everyone on military bases, in military commissaries & exchange bathrooms, in base grammar school bathrooms, and in civil service offices bathrooms to succumb to transgender demands, such as being allowed to shower and go to the bathroom with them, or risk being labeled as a bigot, a homophobe, or worse.  Accommodating transgender military members, requires women and victims of sexual abuse to risk their safety and privacy by allowing biological men into intimate areas reserved only for women and girls on military facilities.

 

The US Armed Forces must focus on its primary function, on its “Combat Effectiveness.”  The ultimate function of the US military is to put a bullet into an enemy soldier, not to promote the progressive “feel good” social experiments that have been destroying unit cohesiveness, unit moral, and military readiness, while driving straight military personnel out of careers in the US Armed Forces.  

 

We encourage you to read Admiral Lyons below listed Op Ed, and forward it to those in your address book who would support our effort to support President Trump’s plan to focus, once again after 8 years, on developing the most efficient “Combat Effective” military force in the world.

Restoring the Military’s Moral Underpinnings

Obama’s social engineering mandates did nothing to improve military readiness

By James A. Lyons - - Sunday, July 23, 2017

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

 

The Trump administration came to power with a clear mandate to restore U.S. military credibility, effectiveness, and capabilities. Such a mandate involves reversing not only the debilitating impact of sequestration on our declining military force structure, but also the Obama administration’s social engineering mandates forced on our military.

These mandates did nothing to improve readiness or capabilities. They destroyed unit integrity, cohesiveness and the “will to win.” Clearly, under President Obama’s plan to fundamentally change America, the degradation of our military forces was a key element. The capitulation of our military leadership to accept these mandates was more than shocking, as it was a manifestation of the corrupt “political correctness” mentality run amok.

 

Civilian laws and different lifestyles which may be acceptable in a civil society should not be forced on the institution of the military. The military as an institution is not an equal opportunity employer. The military’s mandate is to protect and defend the country against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Therefore, the military as an institution must have laws, regulations, and procedures to ensure the maintenance of good order and discipline in order to successfully complete its mission.

 

In June 2015, as part of the social engineering transformation of our military, the Department of Defense added “sexual orientation” to Military Equal Opportunity” categories; thereby, making the military institution just another equal opportunity employer. As a follow on, in June 2016, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter issued the initial directive ordering the military services to accept transgender personnel. How then did homosexuality and transgenders get accepted into the military culture?

 

In an excellent article by Mark A. Hewitt on July 17, 2017 in the American Thinker, he outlines how the American left and LGBT activists hijacked the American Psychological Association and, in effect, “normalized” personality disorders.

 

They successfully lobbied the APA to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders from their “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” (DSM). In the U.S., the DSM not only serves as a universal authority for psychiatric diagnoses but more importantly, the Department of Defense relies on the DSM as its source reference for psychiatric diagnoses and mental disorders.

 

In 1968, homosexuality was listed in the DSM as a mental disorder. With constant pressure from the left and LGBT activists, the APA compromised itself by removing homosexuality from the DSM and replaced it with a nondescript “sexual orientation disturbance” for people “in conflict with” their sexual orientation.

Under constant pressure, the APA members removed homosexuality from the DSM in 1987 by a “majority vote.” With the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repeal Act of 2010, another LGBT agenda goal was achieved to the detriment of the military services.

With the success the left and LGBT activists had on “normalizing” homosexuality, they used the same formula on the acceptability of transgenderism. In 2012, transvestitism was eliminated from the DSM and replaced with a “gender identity disorder.” It was further redefined as a “gender dysphoria.” What this did, in effect, was to remove all implication that transgenderism is a mental illness.

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former head psychiatrist for Johns Hopkins Hospital, has stated many times that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that requires treatment and understanding. He further states that a sex change is “biologically” impossible. Further, it should never be forced on the military.

 

With the change in the latest fifth edition of DSM, the APA voted against Dr. McHugh and his group of like-minded psychiatrists. Regrettably, with the APA and the DSM, if you get enough votes, you can redefine, normalize, and ultimately legitimize any mental disorder. Common sense be damned. Mr. Obama and Mr. Carter had their justification.

In June 2015, with transgenderism voted out of the DSM, LGBT activists had one more urgent objective and that was to end the ban on transgender people serving in the military. Mr. Carter’s June 2016 directive took care of that. Even though a transgender person is mentally unstable and should never qualify for military service, unbelievably, there was no outcry from either congressional or military leadership.

 

These administration directives, in effect, made the military institution accept the LGBT agenda as law.

 

On July 13, 2017, the House of Representatives voted on an amendment to the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act offered by Rep. Vicky Harztler, Missouri Republican. The amendment would have prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for expensive “gender-reassignment” surgery as well as life-long hormone therapy for military personnel suffering from gender dysphoria.

 

Unbelievably, it failed to pass by just five votes, 209-214 with 24 Republicans joining with all Democrats who voted. Regrettably, this is another indication of failed Republican leadership — actually, we have none. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who missed the vote, apparently provided no leadership at all.

 

The other main social engineering mandate was to open all combat roles to women, including our Special Forces and U.S. Navy SEAL Teams. There have been many studies conducted including a special 9-month study by the Marine Corps, which clearly point out the physical limitations of women in direct ground (infantry) combat.

 

Clearly, all of the Obama administration’s social engineering mandates must be canceled. The moral underpinnings of our military must be restored. Further, since the DSM has been fully compromised by the left and the LGBT activists, it should no longer be used by the DOD for guidance and should be decertified. There is only one criteria that should apply and that is mission success. Anything that detracts from that objective must be discarded.

The Rising Deficit Is Threatening America’s Future

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 18, 2017: Op Ed # 361

Two Naval Academy graduates, believe strongly that the increasing National Debt, that doubled over the last 8 years, is the greatest threat facing the Republic, and it threatens the future of America’s children.  They are proposing the below listed initiative; they are:

 

John A. Knuble, USNA ’62, the former Assistant Secretary & Chief Financial Officer, Department of Housing and Urban Development

William “Bill” Owens, USNA ’62,  Admiral, USN (Ret), the former Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

 

They have proposed an initiative to rein in the out of control spending by an irresponsible Congress, since the revenue stream is far exceeded by the National Debt.  This is not a Republican or Democrat initiative, it is a Patriotic American initiative to move toward a balanced budget, in order to protect future generations of Americans. 

 

If the trends that persisted over the last 8 years continue, it will impair the value of the American dollar and the viability of the US economy.  They are proposing limiting the amount of debt under Article Five of the US Constitution; 27 states are moving in the direction to consider such a proposal.  The goal is to educate American citizens in 7 additional states to support a proposal to limit the amount of National Debt.  

 

Please review the below listed analysis, proposal, and the invitation to visit their Web site.  I strongly support the below listed initiative.

Friends of the Center for National Debt Policy and Balanced Budget Amendment Foundation:   

For the first nine months of fiscal year 2107, the Federal Budget deficit is up over 30% and for the full year up 20%.   The cause?    Spending is projected to grow 6% while revenue, a paltry 2%.  These facts are based on last week’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report and they are emerging indicators supporting the 2017- 2027 ten-year forecast.  This data validates the accuracy of the dismal ten-year forecast where interest paid grows as a percent of revenue from 7% to 16%.  

America is running up its credit card debt and the patience of its creditors is what? Lessening?, which is threatening our future and that of our children.   America is entering a period of 'deficit/debt treadmill' where spending outgrows revenue every year under realistic economic growth assumptions and is heading to a continued unsustainable debt growth.   

The Trump Administration's budget forecast on the other hand, projects reduced deficit's leading to a surplus after 10 years rather than the CBO $723 billion deficit.  The difference is the projected rate of economic growth which CBO projects at 1.9% while Trump projects 3.0%.  Nearly all private and public economic estimates are in line with CBO’s growth rate.  A small difference with enormous consequences. The difference between the two, for example, is $3.6 trillion of additional debt, 15% after the ten-year period. The Trump Administration projected a surplus of $16 billion in 2027; CBO a 2027 deficit of $720 billion. An additional $6.8 trillion would be added to the debt over the next 10 years, according to CBO -- nearly $4 trillion more than the administration claimed. CBO’s estimate also omits the president’s tax plan, which costs at least an additional $5.5 trillion if passed as planned.

In the past, these excessively optimistic and untested assumptions like those made by the Trump Administration have never materialized (except tax cuts which have generally been exceeded) so more realistic planning should be based on the CBO projections examined below. 

Unless America learns to plan and live within its means, it’s impossible to forecast the date the resulting unsustainable trends will end.   The implications are clear for our economy, America’s job creation potential, National Security and world leadership as outlined below: 

1. For the next ten years, the ratio of public debt to the economy, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), grows from 77% to 91%.   Credible verified research demonstrates at ratios above 77%, growth slows and at ratios above 90% data is simply not available because credit crises have always intervened to terminate debt growth.  America is no different. (See, “This Time is Different Eight Years of Financial Folly”, Reinhart and Rogoff).

2. Recessions will grow deeper and recoveries will be slower as each recession since the 1950s demonstrates (IBID).  

3. Internationally, the trend of a weakening dollar, off about 10% in 2017, will continue and its role as the primary reserve and trading currency will be reduced.    Analysis of the impact of accelerated deficit and debt growth on the value of the dollar, demonstrates a distinct relationship in which growth in deficits and debt/GDP ratios inevitably impairs the value of the dollar.   

Our advisor close friend and co-signee of this communication, Admiral Bill Owens, second career has made him an international businessman and world traveler with firsthand direct knowledge about the many countries, particularly in Asia, Southeast Arisa and South America, who are rejecting the use of the dollar and asking to do business in Chinese Yuan.  The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) policies reflect a projected reduced role for the dollar.      

Despite each party when in power asserting debt control the Federal Government is demonstrably incapable of dealing with this debt addiction without outside intervention.  Neither the ​Congress, as proven by history, nor President Trump have proven themselves capable of providing the leadership needed to reverse these trends.  

There is a solution, but immediate action is needed.   The solution is a debt limitation amendment to the Constitution under its Article Five.   Currently, there are 27 states supporting the movement with 34 needed to move forward.   As the movement closes in on the 34-state constitutional target, opposition grows from more uninformed and at times, irrational sources.  The key is education of the general public and targeted educational campaigns focused on target states.  To accomplish this, we need your financial and volunteer support!   

Our goal is to raise at least $1.0 million in 2017 and enlist volunteers willing to support these educational efforts on college campuses and main street America.   Also, to write and publish educational and presentation materials needed to run the required nationwide campaign.   

Please join us by indicating a willingness to volunteer and/or financially support this effort by visiting our web site at www.CFFRA.org and contribute a tax-deductible donation or by mailing a check to our Treasurer Bob Frank at the address below.

President Trump Courtesy And Respect Toward a US Marine

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 9, 2017: Op Ed # 360

President Donald J. Trump saw the hat of one of the US Marine Guards blow off his head, due to heavy winds; he chased the hat, bent down, picked the hat off the ground, then put it back on the Marine Guard’s head.  Every American should watch this video of a caring US President’s respect and courtesy toward a US Marine. Amazing!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHrQvIh0hxQ


There is a stark difference in how President Trump treats US Marine Guards, who he always returns hand salutes to, and how Obama treated a US Marine Guard when he occupied the Oval Office.  

 

The press never recorded any other US President who did what Obama did with a US Marine Guard; the press actually recorded Obama having a US Marine Guard cover hold an umbrella over him, to protect him from the rain, while the US Marine Guard holding the umbrella, who was not under the umbrella, had his “hat” and uniform get drenched.  Revealing!

President Trump's Mental Health

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 7, 2017: Op Ed # 359 

In the below listed opinion piece by nationally renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Abelow, M. D., about President Donald J. Trump, Dr. Abelow expands in his rebuttal of the non-stop, out of control attacks on the President, by the Progressives, Leftists, the new Marxists Democrats, and Obama’s Organization For Action (OFA).  They continue to mischaracterize every one of the President Trump’s accomplishments, as they move forward in their plan to effect the first Coup D’estat of the President of The United States in 241 years.  

It would be interesting to be able to see psychiatric evaluations of political opportunists who continue to make unfair, frothing at the mouth, out of control vitriol attacks on President Trump; progressives like Maxine Waters, Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren (aka Pocahontas), Michael Moore, and talk show anchors on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Show, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.  Mika and Joe poke President Trump, on air, in their expression of deep hatred and their immature obsession with the election of President Trump. Their daily rants continue for three hours a day---non-stop.  Some of their obnoxious comments designed to attack, belittle, and degrade the President of The United States are as follows: 

 

President Trump is “out of his mind,” “a pig,” “lying every day,” “a Nazi,” “destroying the country,” “a fascist,” “does not display normal behavior,” “a thug,” “mentally ill,” “a dope,“ “fearful of women,” “dumb,” “developing a dictatorship,” “ugly,” “creating a malignant presidency,” “ a narcissist,” “a goon,” “going to get someone killed in the media,” “ a smuk,” “ a stupid piece of sh*t,” “a racist,” “operating with impunity,” “unpatriotic to criticize the press,” “none of what he says is normal,” “he has teensy hands,” “he wants to kill people,” etc. 
 

While Joe, Mica, and the corrupt media, attack and belittle President Trump every day, they expect President Trump to treat them with respect, and dare him to respond to their daily vitriol attacks.  

For 8 years, the media representative, in their double standard, failed to investigate, and report on the Obama administration’s scandals and corruption, in violation of the US Constitution.  Obama weaponized the FBI, IRS, CIA, and DOJ, and employed the power of those agencies of the US Federal Government to illegally attack and suppress the civil rights of his political opponents.

In their hostile and perverted evaluation of the President Trump’s very substantial accomplishments over the last 5 months, the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment are no longer reporting the truth about President Trump’s accomplishments.  They continue to report that President Trump hasn’t been able to govern, has not followed through on his campaign promises, and is not making any progress at all.  Below is a partial list of President Trumps accomplishments, in just 5 months:   

 

  1. President Trump has signed 42 pieces of legislation into law; very few presidents have ever done this.
  2. Although Senate Democrats delayed their confirmation for 4 months, President Trump appointed a highly qualified Cabinet.
  3. After 8 years, the economy is getting back on track; the stock market and the S&P 500 Index is at an all-time historic high. 
  4. The unemployment rate has decreased to 4.7%, while hundreds of thousands of new jobs are being created. 
  5. The ISIS Caliphate in Raqqa, created in in 2013 and declared in 2014, but never attacked by Obama, has been destroyed. 
  6. Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, controlled by ISIS for nearly 3 years, but never attacked by Obama, has been taken.
  7. US Immigration Laws violated by Obama for 8 years, are now being enforced by ICE, DHS, CBP, Justice, & Border Patrol. 
  8. The US Military is being rearmed, re-manned, and spare parts are being reordered for all equipment.
  9. The 2 million Convicted Criminal Illegal Aliens, released from prisons into the general population by the Obama for 8 years, instead of returning them to their countries of origin, are now being rounded up by ICE and being deported by the thousands. 
  10. A new conservative Supreme Court Justice has been appointed; thousands of conservative Federal Judges are also being appointed.  
  11. The US reaffirmed its support for Israel.  
  12. The US withdrew from the Trans Pacific Partnership. 
  13. The US withdrew from the UN Global Warming Paris Accords; it unfairly charged “only the US” billions of dollars. 
  14. The Supreme Court paused the flow of immigrants from the 6 failed states that permit Terrorists training in their countries.
  15. The President Trump addressed 52 majority Muslim nations in a historic anti-terrorist summit, hosted by Saudi Arabia in Riyadh.
  16. The US put Iran on notice that it would oppose their nuclear weapons development and their state sponsor of terrorism.
  17. The US put North Korea on notice that it would take military action if necessary, to oppose their nuclear blackmail.
  18. President Trump changed Obama’s one sided agreement with Communist Cuba; demanded Cuba return cop killers living there.
  19. The US informed Korea, China, Mexico, Europe, Japan, etc. that it would renegotiate one sided trade agreements.
  20. Dismantled many of Obama’s anti-business Executive Orders that suppressed The Free Enterprise System.
  21. Reaffirmed “Free Exercise of Religion” for all Americans, especially for Christians who were oppressed over the last 8 years.

  23. Approved completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 
  24. Approved completion of the Keystone Pipeline.

  26. Ordered all Federal Agencies to cut two Federal Regulations for every new Federal Regulation they impose.
  27. Prevented the hiring of all federal employees, outside of the requirement for the enlistment of US Military personnel.
  28. Canceled Obama’s order that forced women to allow men to use their bathrooms, and shower in their locker rooms.
  29. Prevented the US Government from funding abortions performed internationally, which Obama used US federal funds to pay for.
  30. Passed a law that allows the Secretary of VA to revoke bonuses, protect whistleblowers, and fire all inept employees.
  31. Signed 15 Resolutions reversing Obama’s oppressive Executive Orders.

The latest POLITICO / Morning Consult poll today revealed that a clear majority of voters support President Trump's travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries. Six in 10 voters back the travel ban, with 60% of voters supporting the State Department's new guidelines that require entrants to prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country—unfortunately 28% oppose them, many of the 28% are supporters of CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood, the two International Terrorist Organizations whose members Obama placed in thousands of sensitive positions in all US Government Agencies—they have become a “Fifth Column.” 

 

The corrupt and dishonest left of center liberal media establishment continues to use derogatory language whenever they refer to the above listed outstanding accomplishments by President Donald J. Trump.  They are doing everything in their power to perpetuate their treasonous “Coup D'estat”, working very closely with Obama’s Organization For Action to disenfranchise 62+ million American voters and bring down The President of the United States.   

 

In reviewing the actions of President Trump in just the last 5 months, the future for the Republic, over the next 4 years looks very bright, as the Trump administration continues to work to “Right The Ship of State.”  Please review the below listed article by nationally renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Abelow, M. D., about President Donald J. Trump.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Following President Trump's  announcement that the USA would withdraw from the Paris Accord, former CBS anchor (now with AXS TV) slammed the President with a series of ad hominem (eg based on feeling or prejudice, rather than facts, reason, or logic) attacks, that ended with strong suggestions that the President had some serious psychological issues.

 

Many others have made the same assertion.

 

Begs the question... What do psychiatrists think?

 

In the paragraphs below, Dr. Keith Abelow provides his opinions on this subject.

 

 

Remarks by Keith Abelow, M.D., Psychiatrist

 

Let me issue the standard disclaimer of psychiatrists who discuss the mental health of public figures: I have not personally examined President Trump.

 

Now, let me put to rest the concerns of Sen. Al Franken and political commentators John Oliver and Andrew Sullivan and anyone else who publicly or privately has questioned the president's sanity: Donald Trump is stone cold sane.

 

When a man acquires billions of dollars through complex real estate transactions, invests in many countries, goes on to phenomenal success in television and turns his name into a worldwide brand, it is very unlikely that he is mentally unstable.

 

When the same man obviously enjoys the love and respect of his children and his wife, who seem to rely on him for support and guidance; it isextraordinarily unlikely that he is mentally unstable.

 

When the same man walks into the political arena and deftly defeats 16 Republican opponents and then the Democratic heir-apparent to a two-term president's administration, the odds of that man being mentally unstable become vanishingly thin.

 

And when that very same man attracts to his team the kind of intellect and gravitas represented (to name just a few) by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general and commander of the U.S. Central Command, he cannot be mentally deranged. Period. It is a statistical impossibility.

 

Those who assert otherwise are political opportunists, or fools, or both (and I am thinking here, in particular, of Sen. Franken).

 

President Trump is the first human being to win this nation's highest office without having held any other political office or serving as a general. Most political pundits thought his quest was pure folly.

 

Most journalists assessed his chances as zero. So who was laboring under quasi-delusional thinking?

 

Answer: Not Donald J. Trump.

 

Anecdotally, by the way, I have never had one bad Trump experience. Not one. I own several of his ties — all of them of the highest quality. I have stayed in his hotels and never had a single complaint (and I am a born complainer). I have eaten in his New York restaurant — flawless service, excellent food. I own an apartment at Trump Place in Manhattan. Impeccable design, sturdy construction, fabulous amenities. A mentally unstable man would be unlikely to deliver superior products across multiple industries, don't you think?

 

If you're still worried about the mental stability of the president, note this: The stock market doesn't like instability. Investors, en masse, can take the measure of a man pretty darn well. The stock market has hit record high after record high since Trump's election, and if you think that's an accident, or that investors have all been fooled, it's time to start wondering about your own capacity for rational thought.

 

I should note that nothing I am saying should besmirch the reputations of men like President Abraham Lincoln or Sir Winston Churchill, both of whom are said to have fought the ravages of major depression or bipolar disorder. One was instrumental in ridding America of slavery. The other was instrumental in saving the world from tyranny.

 

Mahatma Gandhi, by the way, also reportedly suffered from depression. Psychiatric illness does not, a priori, disqualify a person from rendering extraordinary service to mankind.

 

Mind you, neither Lincoln nor Churchill nor Gandhi led a nation after becoming a business sensation and television star. That trifecta defines one man: President Donald J. Trump.

 

Now, think about those who are rabble-rousing about the president's mental status. Take Sen. Al Franken. He's all worried about the president allegedly overestimating the crowd size at his inauguration. But Franken is allied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who asserted she is Native American, when there is no evidence of that whatsoever.

 

And they're calling Trump's sanity into question? Really, you can't make this stuff up.

Happy Fourth of July-----God Bless The USA

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 2, 2017: Op Ed # 358

Each year on Independence Day, the Fourth of July, Americans celebrate, express their support for the freedoms they enjoy, and recognize the unlimited opportunities afforded them to improve their station in life, because of The Free Enterprise System.  The Fourth of July is also an opportunity for each “Patriotic American Citizen” to celebrate a second symbolic birthday.  

 

Countless generations of Americans fought for, and under, the American Flag.  The American Flag symbolizes the unity of Americans.  The “Flag” is flown on national holidays above US Federal buildings, on US Military installations, on US Navy ships, over US Embassies & US Missions, by deployed US military units overseas and by millions of Americans over their residences.  The “American Flag” symbolizes the principles upon which the Founding Fathers established the Republic, and collectively signed the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago. 

 

On the Fourth of July, and every day, Americans citizens demonstrate their support for Military Veterans and members of the US Armed Forces, who raised their right hand and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution, then gallantly served in the defense of the Republic under the American Flag.  

 

At one point in their lives, the members of US Armed Forces wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”  The courage demonstrated by Combat Veterans who served in the defense of the Republic, can be appropriately described by a quote, made in 352 BC, by King Philip of Macedonia:

 

         “Here is courage, mankind’s finest possession.  Here is the noblest prize.”   

 

Kindly click on the below listed link, to listen to an outstanding presentation that is appropriate for the Fourth of July:

      

 https://www.youtube.com/embed/daqwGRdRIsk?feature=player_detailpage

 

Despite the ever present threat from Radical Islamic Terrorists to disrupt Fourth of July celebrations, all Americans should respond to potential threats by flying the American Flag on the Fourth, and by joining with their fellow Americans to celebrate the Fourth of July in the same way they have done in years past.   

 

The Combat Veterans For Congress wish you a secure and Happy Fourth of July!!

Obama’s "Dark Government" Threatens The Constitutional Republic

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 26, 2017: Op Ed # 357 

In the below listed E-mail Col James C. Harding, USAF (Ret), the most highly decorated US Air Force Fighter Pilot in history, with 90 medals including the following combat decorations, expresses his alarm at Obama’s plan is to take down the President of the United States by any means possible.

 

Air Force Cross

Silver Star with 2 oak leaf clusters

Legion of Merit with 1 oak leaf cluster

Distinguished Flying Cross with 8 oak leaf clusters

Bronze Star with combat V and 1 oak leaf cluster

Purple Heart with 3 oak leaf clusters

Meritorious Service Medal

Air Medal with 39 oak leaf clusters

Air Force Commendation Medal with 1 oak leaf cluster

Presidential Unit Citation with 4 oak leaf clusters

USAF Outstanding Unit Award with combat V and 4 oak leaf clusters

 

Col Harding concerns are that Obama formed the Organization For America (OFA) while he still occupied the Oval Office, and staffed it with 32,525 members, established 250 offices throughout the United States, and set aside a budget from his former campaign of $40 million, which budget is being increased by Obama’s current fundraising drives.  

 

Obama has developed a shadow government with OFA that has been sabotaging, resisting, and is trying to tear down the Trump administration.  That is an attack on the peaceful transfer of power which the Founding Fathers established the nation’s Constitutional Republic.  Obama announced 5 months after his replacement was inaugurated, that he will go on the road and actively campaign against President Donald Trump.  That has never been done by a former occupant of the Oval Office in 241 years.

 

President Donald J. Trump has passed 32 pieces of legislation, and is trying to help America recover from 8 years of economic stagnation, the hollowing out of the US Armed Forces, the rampant violation of US Federal Immigration Laws to reduce the flow of nearly 1 million Middle East and African Muslim Refugees without allowing the FBI to interrogate them to determine if they had terrorist ties, and to stop the released Radical Islamic Terrorists from GITMO who are now attacking American Military personnel in combat. 

 

For 11 months, American citizens have been watching in real-time, an overt effort by the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment to try to poison the American people against President Trump, stir sedition, advocate an overthrow of The President of the United States, while joining with Obama’s OFA to disenfranchise over 60 million voters, in their support for the first “Treasonous Coup d’ Estate” of the President of the United States in history. 

 

Barrack Obama, Michelle Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Nazi collaborator George Soros, Tom Perez, Keith Ellison, Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and David Brock are the individuals leading the violent attempt to execute the first “Treasonous Coup d’ Estate” of the President of the United States, violating previsions of the US Constitution.  

 

They are responsible for, and initiating multiple unverifiable highly classified anonymous leaks, as if they were true, with absolutely no sources.  Those illegal leaks of highly classified information are in violation of US Federal Laws.  For 6 months, each week, the leaks were given to The Washington Post and The New York Times in order to get that information distributed nationally by the rest of the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment.  

 

OFA, under Obama’s direct leadership, is conducting radical & violent street demonstrators, and promoting deceit, demagoguery, and mass hysteria.  Under the umbrella of OFA, Obama has mobilized the Communists Party USA, the pro-Illegal Immigration La Raza Organization, CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood and their Front Organizations, Progressives, NOW, Black Lives Matter, The Nation of Islam,  The New Black Panther Party, SEIU, The Weathermen Underground, and the new Socialist Democratic Party, to destabilize the Government of the United States and take down the President of the United State.  Nazi Corroborator George Soros is providing funding for those Obama led radical and leftist groups to fuel the “Treasonous Coup d’ Estate.” 

 

For 11 months, there has been daily “slanderous” and unsubstantiated charges, by the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment’s “propaganda”, that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, yet nearly a year later, there is still not a single shred of concrete evidence proving there was ever collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia, in order to defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidency.  Hillary Clinton’s inept campaign defeated Hillary—the corrupt press still does not know what Hillary’s campaign slogan meant.

For 8 years the left of center liberal media establishment ignored Obama’s violations of US Federal Law and the below listed Scandals----for 11 months they continue to promote a non-existent “Phony Russian Scandal” to unseat President Trump---incidentally there were “no body bags” as a result of the “Phony Russian Scandal”---however Obama’s real scandals listed below resulted in “body bags” for hundreds of American Citizens.  Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell continue to sit on their hands with regards to many of the below listed “Obama Scandals” and have done absolutely nothing about investigating the daily leaks of highly classified material, in violation of US Federal Law.   

  1. In the real “Russian Scandal” that the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment have been ignoring, Obama authorized Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to transfer 20% of the United States' production of uranium to Russia.  The Clinton Foundation was paid $140 million, and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to make a short speech to the Russian Company, Rennance Capital. Hillary’s Campaign Director, John Podesta, received 75 thousand shares of Stock in a Russian Front Company run by Putin, Podesta and his brother Tom were put on the Board of Directors of that Russian Front company, and Tom Podesta received $24 million for lobbying for a Russian Bank.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell with regard to exposing the “Real Russian Scandal?”  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats the scandal as though it never happened.
  2. In the “E-mail Scandal”, Obama knowingly communicating highly classified intelligence via E-mails with Hillary Clinton using a covert E-mail address for 4 years, while Hillary was using an unclassified server in her bathroom to transmit classified messages.  Hillary destroyed over 30,000 E-mails in violation of Federal Law.  By her actions, Hillary compromised US agents imbedded in foreign governments; her criminal actions most probably resulted in “body bags” for those courageous foreign assets.  After Comey found Hillary guilty on all counts of her gross violation of Espionage Laws and said he wouldn’t recommend charging her for thousands of violations of handling classified messages, where were Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell on this?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated Hillary’s violation of Espionage Laws as though they never happened.
  3. In the “Benghazi Scandal”, Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice repeatedly lied to the nation and the UN that a well planned and coordinated attack by over 125 Radical Islamic Terrorists on the US Mission in Benghazi resulted from a peaceful demonstration against a YouTube video that no one ever saw in Libya.  There were 4 more “body bags” as a result of Obama, Susan Rice, and Hillary’s “Dereliction  of Duty”.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell on this gross disregard for the life of government employees, and Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice criminal cover up?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi as a demonstration that went bad. 
  4. In “The Benghazi Scandal”, Obama refused to issue “Cross Border Authority” so a 130 USMC Fast Team in Sigonella Sicily (377 miles away), 2F-16Cs each armed with 500 20MM cannon rounds, on the Tarmac in Aviano, Italy (1044 miles away), a 130 man SPEC Ops CMDR In-Extremis Force (C-1/10) on the Tarmac in Croatia (904 miles away), and a 200 man Trans Sahara Joint Spec Ops Force in Burkina Faso West Africa (1692 miles away) could not go to the defense of the US Mission in Benghazi, there were more “body bags” because of Obama’s failure to support the US Mission and Navy SEALS.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell on the continued cover up by the Obama administration?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with misleading reports, and reported the US Mission was out of reach of US Forces; an outright lie!! 
  5. In “The Bergdahl Scandal”, Obama released 5 Radical Islamic Terrorist Taliban Generals from Gitmo in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, “a deserter before the enemy” and sweetened the exchange by giving the Taliban a substantial ransom payment.  There were 6 more “body bags” for 6 US Army Soldiers who were killed searching for the deserter Bergdahl.  Where were Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell, on investigating the ransom payment?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the scandal and ransom payment as though it never happened.
  6. In the “Obamacare Scandal”, Obama intentionally misled Americans to get Congress to pass Obamacare with many bold & flagrant lies with not one Republican vote.  Americans were not able to keep their doctors, were not able to keep their health insurance policies, and insurance premiums did not go down as Obama promised; they more than doubled.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and continues to treat the scandal as though it never happened. 
  7. In the first arms scandal called, “The Fast & Furious Scandal”, occurred when Obama had former Attorney General Eric Holder ship thousands of weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels.  The Mexican Drug Cartels used one of those weapons to kill US Border Patrolman Brian Terry & hundreds of the other weapons were used to kill hundreds of Mexican citizens.  There was a need for hundreds of additional “body bags” as a result of Obama’s and Holder’s violations of Federal Law.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell on bringing justice to the parents of US Border Patrolman Brian Terry?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the scandal as though it never happened. 
  8. In the second arms scandal “The Benghazi Arms Scandal”, the US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, working with Arms Dealer Marc Turi, delivered thousands of weapons to Al Q’ieda & Radical Islamic Terrorists thru the US Mission in Benghazi.  Those weapons were initially shipped to Qatar, then from Qatar to Libya, then trans shipped to Syria via Turkish ports, and finally shipped to Al Q’ieda and Radical Islamic Terrorists in Syria.  The weapons were paid for by the Obama administration.  There were many more “body bags” of friendly allies who were killed with the weapons supplied to Al Q’ieda by the Obama administration.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell on investigating the second arms scandal?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the second gun running scandal acts as though it never happened.  
  9. In “The Refugees Scandal” occurred over 8 years, when Obama brought in over 900,000 Muslim Middle East and African Refugees into the US, and resettled them in 187 cities without letting the FBI interrogate them to determine if they had terrorist ties.  They are provided with much more monthly financial support than a US Military Veteran who served 20 years of his life in the defense of the Republic.  The FBI now has over 2000 open terrorist cases, and according to Comey in his testimony to Congress, 1/3rd, or over 300, concern Obama’s Muslim Refugees, and 100 closed terrorist cases have resulted in the conviction of 180 Radical Islamic Terrorists.  The FBI reported that they have 37 ISIS terrorist open cases in the US today.  The Obama administration and the corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats those 2000 FBI open cases as though they are not related to the 900,000 Middle East & African Muslim Refugees Obama brought into the US.
  10. In “The Radical Islamic Terrorist Scandal”, since 9/11 with the murder of over three thousand American Citizens, there has been over 76 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks or terrorist incidents on US Soil during the 8 years of the Obama administration, that resulted in 125 deaths and over 400 wounded Americans.  Those attacks and terrorist incidents were covered up by the left of center liberal medias establishment, that resulted in the need for hundreds of “body bags” for American citizens because of Obama’s refusal to let the FBI interview entering Muslim Refugees.  Many “body bags” were required for Americans because of the 200 terrorist attacks or terrorist incident on US Soil since 9/11.  Since President Trumps inauguration there have 13 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks of terrorist incidents on US soil.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and covered up the magnitude of the those Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks or incidents.  
  11. In “The GITMO Scandal”, Obama released 197 of the most dangerous Radical Islamic Terrorists from Gitmo over an 8 year period, and US Intelligence Agencies reported that 1/3rd of Gitmo Detainees return to the battlefield with the intent of trying to kill US Military personnel in Afghanistan and worldwide.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout on the dangerous releases, and treats the scandal acts as though it is normal. 
  12. The “Middle East Christian Refugee Discrimination Scandal” occurred over an 8 year period,  when Obama refused to allow 300,000 Middle East Christians, housed by the Greek Catholic Relief Agency seeking entry into the US, to enter, while during the same period, he authorized the immigration and resettlement of over 900,000 Middle East and African Muslim Refugees into the US.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the scandal as though it never happened.
  13. In “The Convicted Criminal Illegal Aliens Scandal”, instead of returning convicted criminal Illegal Aliens released from US prisons at the end of their sentences to their countries of origin, over an 8 year period, Obama released hundreds of thousands of those convicted criminal Illegal Aliens directly into the general population.  Obama refused to inform Local, County, and State Law Enforcement Agencies who they were and where they were released, despite the repeated request by those Law Enforcement Agencies for that information.  Those Illegal Alien convicts continued their crime sprees.  There were many “body bags” for American citizens murdered by those Illegal Alien convicts.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated this releases into the general population by Obama and Holder as though they never happened.
  14. In “The IRS Targeting Scandal” Obama’s appointees prevented conservative organizations from registering as tax exempt entities, prior to national elections, disenfranchising millions of Conservative Americans to organize, in order to support their candidates in the General Elections like, the IRS allowed Democratic tax exempt organizations to be formed.  Where have Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnell been on taking legal action against Lois Lerner and the Obama’s IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who dodged impeachment, for disenfranchising conservative groups, and preventing them from getting out the vote? The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the scandal as though it was insignificant.    
  15. In “The CNN Scandal”, CNN newscasters gave Donna Brazile, Chairwoman of the DNC, access to CNN’s debate questions, so Donna Brazile could then give Hillary Clinton the questions to the pending debates with Bernie Sanders.  The DNC rigged the Democratic nomination for President, and cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic Nomination for President.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treated the scandal as though it never happened. 
  16. “The Illegal Wire Tape Scandal”,  violated the US Constitutional right of all Americans to be free from illegal monitoring.  Obama illegally surveilled and wire tapped over 30,000+ Americans including President Donald Trump, the Trump Campaign, the Trump Transition Team, members of the US Supreme Court, members of Joint-Chiefs of Staff, Senators, Congressmen, and many others.  Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, violated Federal Law by unmasking LTG Flynn.  What are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnelll, doing about holding hearings to expose the leakers, and on insisting the FBI investigate and file criminal complaints against those responsible?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats the scandal as though the unmasking and intercepts never occurred.  
  17. In the “Loretta Lynch Scandal”, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch violated Federal Law and told FBI Director Comey to call the “FBI Investigation” of Hillary’s unauthorized transmission of thousands of classified E-mails on an unclassified server in her bathroom, that was hacked by 5 foreign intelligence agencies, a “matter.”  Lynch had a meeting with Bill Clinton in her private plane on the tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona to discuss the “FBI Investigation” of Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of an unclassified E-mail server to transmit classified messages.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats the scandal acts as though it was not important.
  18. In “The Leak Scandal” for the last eleven months, in violation of Federal Espionage Laws, a steady stream of highly classified information has been leaked by Obama administration holdovers in intelligence agencies to the press for political purposes.  Comey confessed to releasing leaked information to The New York Times about a privileged conversation he had with the President of the United States by having a third-party deliver the leak to The New York Times.  The leaked information was printed on an FBI computer, and was drafted while he was Director of the FBI, on government time in connection with his job.  Where are Speaker Ryan and Senator Majority Leader McConnelll on this issue?  Are they requesting the FBI to locate multiple leakers and file charges against those who violated the Espionage Act?  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats the scandal acts as though it is okay.  
  19. In “The Second Real Russian Scandal”, covered up by the corrupt left of center liberal media establishment, is that over the last 8 years there has been a massive collusion by Obama with the Communist Party USA, and what he did to the once Patriotic Democratic Party of Presidents Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson that he radicalized.  The irony is that for the last 100 years the left in the United States has colluded with Communists Russia, but it took Obama to completely co-op the Democratic Party and push it radically left while he aggressively colluded with Russia.  In 2013, Obama appointed a CIA Director, John O. Brennan, who had voted in 1976 for the Communist Party USA candidate for President, Gus Hall.  Obama who is a Marxist Saul Alinsky disciple, surrounded himself with Communists & extreme leftists, including Valerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, David Axelrod, Tom Perez, Keith Ellison, Paul Krugman, George Soros, Al Sharpton, David Brock, and Eric Holder (whose stated goal when he was Attorney General was to destroy the US Constitution).  Today, thanks to Obama, there is very little difference between the Communist Party USA, and the new Marxist Democratic Party.  We encourage you to compare both Web sites—there is really very little difference.  The Communist Party USA instructs its members to only vote for Democrats running for elective office; the Communists Party USA enthusiastically endorsed John Kerry, Obama, and Hillary for President.  Obama engineered the election of two Communists to lead the new Marxist Democratic Party, listed below.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and treats the “Second Real Russian Scandal” as though it never happened. 
  20. The Vice Chairman of the Democratic Party, Keith Ellison, is a pro-Radical Islamic Terrorist supporter who opposes the US Constitution and supports Sharia Law to govern the Republic; he took his oath of office on the Quran.  He is very close to CAIR, and the Muslim Brotherhood paid for his pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.  Ellison declared himself a supporter, ally, and defender of Communist Terrorists, by organizing a fundraisings event for Communist Terrorist, Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Communist Movement Symbiotic Liberation Army.  Ellison defended Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, who is wanted by the FBI for murdering a police officer; and is currently opposing her extradition from her safe haven in Communist Cuba.  Ellison is very close to the Communist Party USA – he even held a fundraiser in the home of the Minnesota Communist Party Chairman, Erwin Marquit, and has even written for the Communist Party Web site.The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and covered up this damaging information that ties him to Communists and the Muslim Brotherhood.    
  21. The Radical Chairman of the new Marxist Democratic Party, Marxist Tom Perez, who was Obama’s extreme leftist Secretary of Labor.  Tom Perez was a longtime leader of CASA de Maryland, a militant left “Illegal Aliens” rights group. When Perez was the leader of CASA, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela was sending Perez one million dollars per year from his oil revenue, instructing Perez to use those funds to keep the US Southern border wide open.  Perez has a long history of anti-white views, including a declaration that white people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.  Perez previously served as the Assistant Attorney General under Attorney General, Eric Holder, and supported Holder’s repeated violation of the US Constitution, his instigation of the “Fast and Furious Scandal”, and supported Holder’s prevention of the investigation of the rampant voter fraud by ACORN during the 2008 national election, where 5.7 million Illegal votes were cast in which Obama was elected.  Holder’s actions in the  “Fast and Furious Scandal” led Congress to vote Holder to be the first US Attorney General in 240 years to be held “In Contempt of Congress”.  Ambassador Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the United Nations for Human Rights, stated Perez is a racist who hates the Bible, and is anti-Semitic.  He said Perez’s goals are to destroy the free market economy of America, to destroy the Christian Society of the United States, and to turn the United States into a Marxist nation.  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and covers up of this damaging information.     
  1. Ellison and Perez plan is to complete the Marxist “infection” of all US university campuses which is endangering America’s very existence as a free Republic.  Obama, Ellison, and Perez, are using Russia as a threat, in order to prevent President Trump from overturning the Socialist policies of the Obama administration, and returning the US to capitalism and freedom.  Ambassador Valladares further stated about Perez and Ellison, that: “The two new leaders of the Democratic National Committee are both racist, anti-Semitic, who ignore the US Constitution, and the history of America.  Both of them have been and are allies of terrorist movements; they have shared the hatred for the United States and its laws.  They complement each other in their hatred of the Bible, they wish to sweep away this American society, with ideological mobs, terrorists, Communists, Radical Muslims, and the scum of the country whose goal it is to destroy it (the Republic).  They joined the ranks of the Democratic Party, and with the complicit silence of the (former) leaders of the it (the Democratic Party), they took possession of it (the Democratic Party) and turned it into and political party that supports the Communist Party USA.”(April 25, 2017 by Frank de Varona - Bear Witness Central)  The corrupt press stone-walled the American people with a media blackout, and covers up of he damaging information the the two leaders of the Democrat Party are Communists and terrorist sympathizers.    


The extreme radical left, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, new Marxist Democratic Party which “no longer supports” the US Constitution, really isn’t any different from the Communist Party USA.  It does not support Freedom of Speech at rallies/on campus/in classrooms/on Network News, while it opposes voter registration for “only” American citizens with massive programs to register Illegal Aliens & Muslim Refugees (a report just came out from a New Jersey Research Organization, Just Facts, that said 5.7 million non US Citizens illegally voted in the 2008 national election), and the Democrats oppose closing the wide open southern border to prevent terrorist, drug dealers, female slave traffickers, and Illegal Aliens from entering. 

The left of center liberal media establishment has done an excellent job of concealing just how radicalized & anti US Constitution the radical left, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, new Marxist Democratic Party has become over the last 8 years.  The Founding Fathers, President Truman, President Kennedy, and President Johnson would be turning over in their graves if they knew what happened to their proud Patriotic Democratic Party!!!  The interesting thing to consider is that Russia is no longer Communist, because Communism/Socialism didn’t work in Russia, in China, in Eastern Europe, in Cuba, in oil-rich Venezuela, nor anywhere in the last 100 years---it breaks down because it violates the laws of economy and basic human freedoms.    

 

American’s ideals established by the Founding Fathers are rooted in liberty, a strong work ethic, a citizenry governed by the US Constitution, with limited government, based on Judeo-Christian morality, promoting individual freedom, providing unlimited opportunity, unencumbered by the heavy hand of a central government.  "The American Republic created the most successful and most powerful economic engine in the history of mankind.”  

 

The American Republic has a generous and noble history, and every student should be made aware of America’s rich history to defuse the attempts by the left and the new Marxist Democratic Party to promote Socialism and Communism.

Historic Change: This issue of the "Dark Government" of Obama is threatening Americans. By Gilbert Palmer

 
I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of a former presidents set up a group called "Organizing For Action" (OFA).

OFA - 30,000 strong working to disrupt everything that our current president is trying to do. This goes against our Democracy, it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If this is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.
 

It is explained below. Do your part: read it and at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy! Article from the New York Post - If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!
 

The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA). OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.
 

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we've accomplished. Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities - and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond."
 

OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it's the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic - AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president "will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House." Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office near the White House.

 

Think about how this work - for example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; violence follows - all emanating from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.


If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.


House Resolution 257 and Senate Resolution 118 Criminalizes "Freedom of Speech"

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 21, 2017: Op Ed # 356

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, International Terrorist Organizations, have managed to get Senate Resolution 118 and House Resolution 257 introduced into the House and Senate.  If those resolutions are passed into law, this law will “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.”  

 

The Founding Fathers gave Americans “Freedom of Speech" in the US Constitution; CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are trying to “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.”   

 

Those resolutions are part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s sinister plan to replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law, through a back door method of passing various laws that chip away at the precepts of the US Constitution.  Those International Terrorists know Patriotic Americans would never knowingly replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law.  

 

There is absolutely no need for this proposed new law since the current laws and civil rights laws already prohibits violence, threats of violence, discrimination against “all” individuals, and hate crimes.  The resolution conveniently protects Muslims but “Excludes Christians”.

 

How could members of the House and Senate be so foolish as to pass those destructive resolutions that would undermine the US Constitution and would be the beginning of the Muslim Brotherhood success in slowly destroying the foundation upon which the Republic was created, the US Constitution---this law is a subtle attack against Christians and law enforcement.  

 

We are asking ever person who receives this E-mail, especially members of the US Armed Forces on active duty, Christian Clergy, members of Law Enforcement, and the 22 million Veterans in the United States who raised their right hand, and swore to “Protect and Defend the US Constitution”, to aggressively oppose those two Resolutions.  Please ask them to oppose this proposed law, and vote against any Senator or Congressmen “in both parties” who votes for this proposed anti-US Constitution and pro-Sharia Law resolutions.   

 

Americans should be concerned about those resolutions, especially the part of the House Resolution, which urges the establishment of an "interagency task force led by the Attorney General ... on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities."  This is an attempt to suppress law enforcement and opposition to Sharia Law.

 

The resolutions were engineered by CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood are designed to silence any American who speaks up to oppose what we are seeing happening in England today.  The goal is to “criminalizing speaking out against Radical Islamic Terrorism” resulting in arrest and being criminally charged in court.  The net result is that CAIR would make an example of any American who speaks out, and to suppress all Americans from ever speaking out against the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR programs again (like opposing the indoctrination of students in Islam and Sharia law in Public Schools).

Please forward this message on to every member in your address book, ask them to contact their Senators and Congressmen to oppose this proposed new law, whose details are discussed in the below listed article.

Watch Out: U.S. Trying to Criminalize Free Speech - Again
by Judith Bergman  June 20, 2017 

  • The law already prohibits violence and threats of violence, and law enforcement authorities are supposed to prosecute those -- intimidation, destruction, damage, vandalism, simple and aggravated assault. What "hate crimes" are not already covered by the law?
  • Why would the House of Representatives find it necessary to make such redundant statements, if not in order to redefine the concept of a hate crime? Perhaps by including "hate speech"? The current resolution includes most of the major ethnic and religious minorities in the United States, so it will have a far better chance of passing, as it will more easily fool Representatives into thinking that the contents of the resolution are harmless.
  • Would it not be appropriate for the politicians sponsoring and voting for these resolutions first of all to find out what drives the organizations responsible for drafting them? The Investigative Project on Terrorism has authored a damning 88-page report about the Muslim Public Affairs Council. American politicians do not seem to have taken much interest in it.

On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, "Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States". The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). On April 6, 2017, EmgageUSA wrote the following on their Facebook page:

"Thanks to the hard work of Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Kamala Harris we have achieved the approval of Senate Resolution 118, an anti-hate crimes bill drafted by Emerge-USA. It is days like this that Americans are reminded of this country's founding principles: equal opportunity, freedom, justice. We are proud to help support the protection of these rights a more perfect union the American dream."
 

Senate Resolution 118 calls on

"...Federal law enforcement officials, working with State and local officials... to expeditiously investigate all credible reports of hate crimes and incidents and threats against minorities in the United States and to hold the perpetrators of those crimes, incidents, or threats accountable and bring the perpetrators to justice; encourages the Department of Justice and other Federal agencies to work to improve the reporting of hate crimes; and... encourages the development of an interagency task force led by the Attorney General to collaborate on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities..."

The resolution refers to hate crimes against Muslims, Jews, African-Americans, Hindus, and Sikhs and was sponsored by Senator Kamala Harris and co-sponsored by Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Senator Susan Collins.

On April 6, almost the exact same text was introduced as House Resolution H.Res. 257, "Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States". A House Resolution can be reintroduced as legislation.

H.Res. 257 urges

"...the development of an interagency task force led by the Attorney General and bringing together the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education, the Department of State, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to collaborate on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities". The House Resolution was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary on April 6 and from there it was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations on April 21.

Americans should be concerned about these resolutions, especially the part of the House Resolution, which urges the establishment of an "interagency task force led by the Attorney General ... on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate
crime in order to protect minority communities."


Display "The American Flag" on Flag Day, June 14th---and Every Day

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 14, 2017: Op Ed # 355  

"The American Flag" symbolizes the principles outlined in the US Constitution by the Founding Fathers. All members of the US Armed Forces raised their right hand and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution, and countless generations of those American Patriots have fought for and under "The American Flag."  

Flag Day is another of the many opportunities Patriotic Americans have to demonstrate their respect for “The American Flag,” and to set an example for younger generations that respect for “The American Flag,” demonstrates ones respect for the Republic.

Through the generations, "The American Flag" is the Patriotic banner under which the nation came together to reject the relentless efforts of America's domestic enemies to divide the Republic by race, religion, ethnicity, and gender.

Kindly click on the below listed link to view a short message. 
 
 

Putting Up the Flag
