Senators Act to Retain Obama Transgender Policies In NDAA Which Degrades "Combat Effectiveness"

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 15, 2017: Op Ed # 368

We encourage you to review the below listed position paper by the Center for Military Readiness, then to contact your Congressional Representatives encouraging them to oppose the Amendment proposed as an attachment to the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  

The irresponsible Amendment is being proposed by Senator Susan Collins (R-Me) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insisting that Obama’s transgender policies remain unchanged as a part of the FY 2018 NDAA. 


Obama’s transgender policy has been a destructive social experiment forced upon the US Military requiring the recruiting and retention of personnel who suffer from a psychological condition called gender dysphoria has been the most “Destructive Policy” that has ever been forced upon the US Armed Forces in its 242 year history.  

Service in the US Armed Forces is not a Constitutional right.  Many Americans who desire to serve in the Armed Forces have flat feet, poor eyesight, are overweight, have hearing problems, are too short, have substance abuse problems, have been convicted of crimes by law enforcement, or have psychological problems that would make them unreliable in combat, endangering the lives of others in combat.  Those are some of the many reasons certain Americans are precluded from serving their country in the US Armed Forces. 

It has severely complicated military leadership from the Commanding Officers level down to the Unit Petty Officer/Squad Leaders level, and has required the US Armed Forces to spend many millions of man hours in awareness training that should have been spent on improving combat skills, and has also severely degraded, the “Morale”, “Unit Cohesiveness”, “Combat Effectiveness” and “Readiness” of the US Armed Forces.

Irresponsible Senate Move re Transgenders Would Harm Military Readiness


On September 11, Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Susan Collins (R-ME) announced their co-sponsorship of an amendment to the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which would force the armed forces to retain and recruit persons who suffer from a psychological condition called gender dysphoria. The following comments may be attributed to, Elaine Donnelly President of the Center for Military Readiness:


"It is regrettable that two senators who have consistently demanded social experiments in the military, while disavowing negative consequences of their own misguided policy demands, would try to cut off at the knees both Secretary of Defense James Mattis and President Donald Trump on an important national defense issue: transgenders in the military.


"Senator Gillibrand keeps raising alarms about increased sexual assaults in the military, which are of concern to everyone. But she cares nothing about military women living in close-quarters who are being forced to accept biological males in female-designated showers and private facilities. Nor do the senators care about doctors and nurses being forced to approve or participate in treatments that many consider contrary to medical ethics or personal convictions.


"Taking a 'Ready, Fire, Aim' and 'Don't Confuse Us with the Facts' approach, Senators Collins and Gillibrand demand that Secretary Mattis produce a report that fits their expectations, even before confirmation of the official nominated to head the Pentagon office designated to handle the issue.  


"The senators' amendment implies that the military is nothing more than an equal opportunity (EO) employer. On the contrary, there is no constitutional right to serve in the military. The armed forces exist to defend the country, and being "qualified" for military service involves more than personal desire or physical strength.


"Gender dysphoria is one of several psychological conditions, such as anorexia nervosabulimiachronic air- or sea-sickness, or claustrophobia, which affect personal readiness to deploy. Transgenders can serve our country in many ways, but prolonged absences associated with expensive, gender-denying "transition plans," hormone therapies, and surgeries make them one of many groups that do not meet military qualification requirements.


"It seems that the senators want to rely on Obama holdovers and misinformation produced in consultation with LGBT activist groups, including the often-quoted 2016 RAND Report. CMR has prepared a two-page CMR Summary citing several reasons why this pre-determined polemic (not a "study") cannot be considered a credible source for understanding negative effects of Obama-era policies:


Restore Military Strength and Pre-Obama Transgender Mandates 


"On August 25, President Donald Trump supported the troops by formally directing the Secretary of Defense to reinstate policies regarding transgenders in the military that were in effect before June 2016. The Presidential Memorandum continued Secretary Mattis' suspension of Obama orders to recruit transgenders, and halted the use of DoD funds for related surgical procedures.


"At least fifteenDoD and military service directives, instructions, and training manuals, which the Center for Military Readiness analyzed in a 27-page CMR Special Reportwould seriously undermine readiness while offering no benefits in terms of combat effectiveness.


"The Senate Armed Services Committee has had zero public hearings on these controversial directives,all of which endorsed the reality-denying, unscientificLGBT delusion that gender is "assigned" at birth and can be altered by changing a person's appearance and "gender marker."


"According to leading experts, human "sex change" is biologically impossible. Gender is identified at birth, not assigned, and every person's gender-determining DNA chromosomes exist in every cell of his or her body.


As stated in the Presidential Memorandum, all military personnel policies should improve military effectiveness, lethality, and unit cohesion, and not put unnecessary burdens on military resources. The President's initiative to return to pre-Obama policies deserves full support.

Remembering the 9/11 Radical Islamic Terrorist Attack on the United States

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 11, 2017: Op Ed # 367

It has been 16 years since the Radical Islamic Terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, on the United States that killed 2974 Americans and wounded over 6000.  The flight paths of the 9/11 attack by four aircraft, employed as guided missiles by the Radical Islamic Terrorists, are diagramed in the below listed panel for your review.

The series of airline hijackings and suicide attacks committed by 19 Radical Islamic Terrorists, who were members of the Al Q’ieda International Radical Islamic Terrorist Organization, which was the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil in U.S. history.  The attacks against New York City and Washington, D.C., caused extensive death and destruction and triggered an enormous U.S. effort to combat Radical Islamic Terrorism


Some 2,750 people were killed in New York, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in Pennsylvania (where one of the hijacked planes crashed after the passengers attempted to retake the plane); all 19 the Radical Islamic Terrorist hijackers were killed.  Police and fire departments in New York were especially hard-hit: hundreds had rushed to the scene of the attacks, and more than 400 police officers and firefighters were killed.


Unfortunately for 8 years, members of The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist organization, and CAIR, designated as an International Terrorist organization by The United Arab Emirates, who were appointed to very sensitive and highly classified US Government positions by Obama, led the well-coordinated effort to cover up the Radical Islamic Terrorists attacks on the US for the last 16 years.  Those members of The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR are responsible for threating government employees, students, and the general public with being labeled as “Politically Incorrect “ if they dared warn their fellow Americans of the continuing and dangerous threat posed to all Americans by Radical Islamic Terrorists, The Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR.


For 8 years, in addition to The Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, the left of center press, and the Obama administration intentionally misleading Americans, the leaders of both political parties, hundreds of elected members of Congress, the Obama administration, and the left of center liberal media establishment continued to cover up the 210 continuing and repeated Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks on Americans in the United States since 9/11 (resulting in the murder of an additional 127 Americans, and the wounding of over 400 other Americans).  They have been responsible for intentionally dumbing down and misleading Americans to the serious threat posed to the Republic by Radical Islamic Terrorism, the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR.  


We have compiled the below listed data on the most recent 99 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks and attempted attacks in the United States, going back to July of 2008, by Middle East & African Muslim Refugees, Descendants of those Muslim Refugees, and Radicalized Islamic Terrorists from Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.  You can easily read more detailed reports about the 99 attacks, by inserting the below listed information on each attack in GOOGLE to do a search.


Readers will have to do their own research on the Internet to review information on the previous 101 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks or attempted attacks in the United States by Radical Islamic Terrorists for the period from 9/11 to July 8, 2008.  The left of center liberal media establishment, The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist organization, and CAIR designated as an International Terrorist organization by The United Arab Emirates, have been doing a fairly effective job of covering up those attacks on US soil.  


We encourage all American citizens who want to continue to protect and defend the US Constitution, to send this Op Ed to those in your address book who oppose Sharia Law being promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR to replace the US Constitution as the governing law of the United States.

Middle East & African Muslim Refugees, Descendants of Those Muslim Refugees, and Radicalized Islamic Terrorists from Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc., Who Perpetrated or Attempted to Perpetrate Terrorist Attacks on Americans in The US  


Itemized below are 99 of the 210 Radical Islamic Terrorists attacks or planned attacks on US soil perpetrated since 9/11, by Radical Islamic Terrorists, Muslim Refugees, descendants of Muslim Refugees, by Radicalized Islamists, Jihadists who traveled to Syria or Africa to train with Al Shabab, ISIS, Al Q’ieda, and the Muslim Brotherhood.  The countries of origins from which many of the Radical Islamic Terrorists have been entering the US through the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, entering from Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Iran, and Libya.  Except for Iran, those countries had effectively no control over the identity of terrorists operating and training within their country’s borders.  They have killed over 127 Americans, wounding over 400 Americans, and have raped many Americans over an 8 year period. 


The Radical Islamic Terrorist perpetrated attacks on US soil in Morganton (NC), Philadelphia (PA), Sacramento (CA), San Bernardino (CA), Oakland (CA), Fresno (CA) San Francisco (CA), Los Angeles (CA), Richmond (CA), Merced (CA), Moore (OK), Kissimmee (FL), Orlando (FL), Mount Pleasant (NJ), West Orange (NJ), Buena Vista (NJ), Fort Hood (TX), Houston (TX), Waltham (MA), Garland (TX), Irving (TX), Port Bolivar (TX), Portland (ME), Chattanooga (TN), Boston (MA), Portland (OR), Minneapolis (MN), St Cloud (MN), Faribault (MN), Polk County (MN), Jonesboro (GA), Lawrenceville (GA), Toledo (OH), Ashtabula (OH), Columbus (OH), Cincinnati (OH), Glendale (AZ), Phoenix (AZ), Little Rock (AR), Marquette Park (IL), Chicago (IL), Kennewick (WA), Seattle (WA), Skyway (WA), Clarksburg (MD), Aspen Hill (MD), Baltimore (MD), Springfield (VA), Roanoke (VA), Arlington (VA), Fredricksburg (VA), Manassas (VA), Montgomery County (MO), St Louis (MO), Bowling Green (KY), Washington (DC), Detroit (MI), Warren (MI), Flint Michigan Airport (MI), Baton Rouge (LA), Montgomery (AL), Aberdeen, (SD), Hamden (CT), Colorado Springs (CO), Denver (CO), Scottsville (NY), Bingham (NY), Buffalo (NY), Time Square (NYC), Niskayuna (NY), LaGuardia Airport (NY), Chelsea Area of Manhattan (NY), Twin Falls (ID), Boise (ID), the Panama Canal Zone (Panama), and many other US cities too numerous to be listed here. 


After each Radical Islamic Terrorist instigated attack, the identity of the attackers were covered up by the Obama administration and the Muslim Brotherhood for 8 years, working in concert with the left of center liberal media establishment to mislead Americans about who perpetrated the 206 terrorist attacks or threats to injure Americans in the US.  They used politically correct language to cover up the identity of the Radical Islamic Terrorists who repeatedly murdered Americans for the last 8 years.  It was a continuing conspiracy that resulted in the injury and murder of hundreds of American citizens, in a cover up that undermine the National Security of the United States!  The FBI reported that hundreds of second generation Muslim refugees who were put on fact track program to become US Citizens by Obama, have left the country to join overseas terrorist organizations such as al-Shaba in Somalia and ISIS & Al Q’ieda in Syria Iraq.  The FBI has opened 2000+ terrorist cases, in all 50 states, evaluating plots to kill Americans; they have gained convictions in 37 ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist plots, to kill Americans on US soil.  Former Director of the FBI, James Comey, said fifteen percent (15%) of the 2000+ terrorist cases under investigation (or roughly 300), can be attributed to be coming from the 900,000+ Middle East and African Muslim Refugees, that Obama resettlement in 187 cities throughout the US over the last  8 years.  Obama refused to allow the FBI to interrogate any of the 900,000+ Muslim Refugees to determine if they had terrorist ties.   

The refugees, and off springs of refugees, listed below executed 79 Radical Islamic Terrorists attacks or attempted attacks designed to kill American citizens in the above listed US cities and the Panama Canal Zone during the 8 years of the Obama administration, and 20 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks and attempted attacks since President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017.  The below list is a partial list of the 97 of the 209 Radical Islamic Terrorist incidents perpetrated in US cities and the Panama Canal Zone by Radical Islamic Terrorists since 9/11:

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL-6) Spending Bill Amendment

 By Capt Joseph R. John, August 30, 2017: Op Ed # 365

An endorsed and elected Combat Veteran For Congress, Congressman Ron DeSantis, Cdr-USNR (JAGC) (R-FL-6), attached an amendment to the must-pass spending bill, that Congress will take up next week.  The amendment prohibits the Special Counsel from investigating President Trump, his family members, or the Trump campaign for anything that happened prior to June 2015, when, then Donald Trump announced his candidacy.

Congressman DeSantis’ amendment puts a 180-day cap on funding for the Special Counsel’s investigation in the Russian collusion probe.  "Congress should not fund a fishing expedition," said Congressman DeSantis. “Congress should use its spending power to clarify the scope and limit the duration of this investigation,” he said. 

After one year of investigation, not one allegation of any criminal wrongdoing has surfaced, nor has the false allegation that the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President been proven.  In fact the opposite is most probably true, since Secretary of State Clinton’s transfer of 20% of the US uranium production to Putin gained his approval.  For the transfer of 20% of the US uranium production to Russia, the Clintons were rewarded with a $140,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a one hour speech to a Russian bank.  This Russian collusion is what the Special Counsel should really be investigating.


In recent Congressional testimony, it was learned that members of the Obama administration's inner circle, including Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, and John Brennan, illegally unmasked General Michael Flynn, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Lindsey Graham, and others.  They used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to authorize US Intelligence Agencie to investigate Gen Flynn, the US Senators, and the Trump Campaign to unmask and illegally spy on Americans.  


In addition, Obama’s deep state operatives had been spying on members of the Supreme Court, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Congressmen, Senators, then candidate Donald Trump in Trump Towers, the Trump Campaign staff, members of the Trump family, and millions of Americans in violation of US Federal Law.  Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, made an outright lie in Congressional testimony, when he said no Americans were being illegally spied upon.      


After one year of the unlawful employment FISA to authorize unmasking, and recording the transmissions of then candidate Donald Trump, President Donald Trump, the Trump Campaign, members of the Trump Campaign Staff, and members of the Trump family, not one allegation of a criminal wrongdoing has surfaced.  


Congressman Ron DeSantis’ well thought out amendment to the must-pass spending bill, will bring a semblance of sanity to the out of control left of center liberal media establishment’s lie that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton for President.  The Hillary Clinton inept campaign actually defeated Hillary Clinton for President. 


If Congressman DeSantis’ amendment to the spending bill is discarded by the Rules Committee, the only person who will be responsible will be Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

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


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.


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.


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...]


  • 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.”


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.”


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.


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



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.

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!

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.
  22. Ordered construction of the Border Wall to close the wide open Southern Border, to curb drug smuggling and human trafficking. 
  23. Approved completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 
  24. Approved completion of the Keystone Pipeline.  
  25. Ordered DOJ and DHS to withhold Federal Funds from Sanctuary Cities.
  26. Ordered all Federal Agencies to cut two Federal Regulations for every new Federal Regulation they impose.

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:


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!!
