Since December 7, 1941 over one million members of the US Armed Forces have been wounded and over 500,000 made the ultimate sacrifice having lost their lives in Combat. A much larger number of US military personnel have suffered injuries on active duty. It has been 70 years since the end of World War II, and still some of the Veterans from that war are seeking proper medical treatment from the Veterans Administration (VA). Today an average of 23 veterans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan are committing suicide each day. They may have PTSD, and other afflictions and may have not been receiving the proper medical or psychiatric therapy and treatment thru the VA. We encourage all Americans to support all efforts to provide proper medical treatment for all Veterans from the VA and other civilian medical facilities.
In 2008, because of the dedicated and steadfast efforts of Col Buzz Aldrin, USMA'51, USAF (Ret) PhD, Apollo XI Astronaut (the second Astronaut to set foot on the surface of the moon), a Law was passed, which can be fully explained by clicking on the below listed link. That law encourages and authorizes all American Veterans, in civilian clothes, to render a hand salute when the National Anthem is played at public events. It allows Veterans to continue to demonstrate their respect for the National Anthem, and it also allows all Americans at public events to see who the honorable Veterans are who served under the flag of the nation, and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution.
At this critical juncture in the life of the Republic when our way of life is being threatened by enemies, foreign and domestic, we encourage all Americans to remember and adhere to President John F. Kennedy (Lt-USN) charge to all Americans during his Inaugural Address, when he said, “Ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country.” The 24 million US Veterans do not have to wonder what they can do for their country. At one point in their life, those Veterans wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.” Today and every day, we encourage you to remember and thank an American Veteran you may know for their honorable service in defense of the Republic.
Freedom is not free, and over the last 75 years, there were heavy prices paid by members of the US Armed Forces for the liberties all Americans enjoy. On this coming Memorial Day, in solemn tribute, we join the nation to pay homage to those members of the US Armed Forces, who made the ultimate sacrifice, when they gave “their last full measure of devotion to defend the nation” and by doing so, signaled the world the lengths Patriotic Americans will go to, to safeguard the freedom, liberty, and democracy for all Americans---God Bless their noble souls!

On Tuesday the Republican leadership will encourage the House and Senate to vote to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Initiative; the bill is known as “Trade Promotion Authority” or TPA---no one has even seen thousands of pages of Obama’s Secret Trade Bill ---now the Republican leadership is saying “we will have to pass it to see what is in it”. The Republican leaders are planning to give Obama “Carte Blanche” to enter into “Fast-Track Trade Treaties” in “total secrecy” eventually with future countries such as Cuba, Iran, China, Russia, etc., because Obama will be able to add other countries to this agreement, which is UNCONSTITUTIONAL; it “short circuits the legislative process” which requires a two thirds majority vote of the US Senate to approve Treaties. Republican leaders are planning to give Obama unprecedented power to curtail Congressional checks and balances on Treaties, even while they have been watching him for 6 ½ years, violate Federal Immigration Laws, the US Constitution, and Freedom of Religion for members of the US Armed Forces.
The TPA Bill has many damaging provisions, among them, it will allow millions of foreign workers to be given visas to enter the US at a time when 104 million Americans are unemployed, the TPA will open the way to import dangerous foods products that will negatively affect the health of unsuspecting Americans, according to Congressman Alan Grayson (R-FL-9) it will ship millions of American jobs overseas, it will “force the US” to abide by UN & EPA business destructive unproven climate change regulations, will “force the US” to abide by the UN’s Small Arms Trade Treaty(ATT) which was voted down by the US Senate & violates the 2nd Amendment’s provision that allows American citizens to purchase and sell their small arms, and it will force the US Congress to abide by every UN Treaty, undermining the sovereignty of the United States.
The TPA initially embraces 12 nations including the US, Peru, Chile, Mexico, Canada, Japan, Vietnam, Australia, Brunei, Darussalam, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Singapore; however there is a provision in the agreement that allows Obama to add other countries in the future, like Cuba, China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Libya, Syria, etc.. The TPA is a secret Obama Law, like the secret Obamacare Law, that will allow the free flow of Mexican, South American, and Asian workers to enter the US (not only will the southern border remain wide open, but the US will no longer have any borders “at all”, or any barriers to entry), the millions of new entering foreign workers will willingly work for exceptionally lower wages under substandard conditions. Details in thousands of unread pages of this law have not been read or worked out, yet the Republican leadership is giving Obama “Fast-Track” authority to make any and all decisions in all and every treaty with the initial 12 countries and as many additional countries Obama decides on in the future, without Senate ratification (all future trade treaties will no longer be subject to the Constitutional requirement of a two-thirds majority of the US Senate for ratification). Republican leaders are enhancing Obama’s control of foreign policy, while making the Congress irrelevant.
In order to deal with the millions of Americans who will be losing their jobs because of the TPA Bill, under the radar, the Republican leadership of the House and Senate is crafting a bill to go along with TPA, known as the Trade Adjustment Assistance Bill to be passed on the same day the TPA Bill is passed----it should more appropriately be entitled the “Put all American Workers on Welfare Bill Because of the TPA Bill”. That new Trade Adjustment Assistance Bill specifically targets workers and farmers who lose their livelihood, because of this “Stupid TPA Bill” being promoted by the Republican leadership in Congress, which will result in millions of Americans losing their jobs because of what Obama will authorize in secret “Trade Treaties” with foreign countries, that will be devastating to the labor movement and jobs in the United States.
Once Obama uses his “Fast-Track” authority to agree with UN Regulations, Congress would not be able to modify or amend those TPP provision entered into solely by Obama himself, without Congressional involvement at all, and Obama’s individual decision would have the force of the “law of the land” under the US Constitution. This proposed "living agreement" by Republican leaders in Congress will seriously undercut the re-employment of 104 million unemployed Americans, because as a "living agreement", it would leave the southern border of the US to be even more porous than it is today, and will allow Obama to change immigration policy “at will” without Congressional approval—those proposed provisions of the TPA are absolutely UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Republican leaders are approving the massive immigration of millions of Illegal Aliens from Mexico and from 12 other countries.
The Republican leadership will surrender its authority to write Federal Immigration Laws by passing TPA, thus enabling Obama to use his pen to simply authorize the importation of millions of non-Christian Asian, Japanese, Malaysian, Brunei, Darussalam, Singapore, and eventually Chinese and Iranian workers. According to the Greek Catholic Relief Agency, for over 6 ½ years, Obama has refused to allow any of the 300,000 Syrian and Assyrian Christian refugees in the Middle East to enter the US, while Canada has been resettling those Syrian and Assyrian Christians. Obama’s has only been allowing the entry of Muslim refugees thru the UN Muslim Refugees Resettlement Program, and has been intentionally excluded Christians. Now the Republican leadership is giving Obama the right to bring in millions of Asian immigrant workers who are also not of the Christian faith.
Obama has been resettling hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees in 195 cities across the nation without elected state and city officials being provided with specific details on who is being resettled in their cities, and without informing them who is going to pay for the health care, resettlement costs, transportation costs, education of refugee children, the welfare costs of refugee families, food stamps, and housing costs for hundreds of thousands of those Muslim refugees being brought into their communities.
Supporters of this aggressive secret Obama initiative include Democratic Progressives in Congress, Democratic Congressman Danny K. Davis who received an award from the Communist Party in 2012, David Cortright who is Obama’s close Chicago associate on the Committee for a Sane Nuclear policy (SANE), Communist Tom Hayden who is a member of “Progressives for Obama”, Democratic Congressmen in the “Hanoi Lobby” who are aggressively supporting normalization of relations with Cuba, Cora Weiss who is a strong supporter of Communism & a member of the Anti-War Movement, Adam Hersh from the liberal Center for American Progress, the left of center liberal media establishment, and the Democratic Progressive Caucus. Those Leftists, Marxists, Progressives, and Communists, have been getting the very aggressive support of the Republican leadership in the House and Senate, who have been working with the Democratic Progressive Caucus in Congress to pass the TPA (the 70 member Caucus includes Socialists, Progressives, Marxists, and Communists members of Congress),
The AFL-CIO Unions are on solid footing in their opposition to this “Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority”. Responsible and clear thinking Democrats in Congress are against giving Obama “Fast-Track” authority with this labor damaging bill’ it will allow millions of new workers to enter the US, will force the Congress to abide by environmental protection standards that will restrict business development & job growth in the US, will allow currency manipulation, and will allow millions of new Mexican Illegal Alien workers to legally enter & work in the United States. The Republican leaders in Congress should use some degree of “Common Sense” and wait for 19 months, before they give the occupant in the Oval Office any trade promotion authority, and only if that trade authority is very limited. Hopefully the new occupant of the Oval Office, unlike Obama, will be a pro-American president who supports and abides by the provisions of the US Constitution.
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions has alerted the American people about the dangers of the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) speeding through Congress and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal that TPA would help push. Senator S essions said, "The president has circumvented Congress on immigration with serial regularity. But the TPA would yield new power to the executive to alter admissions while subtracting Congressional checks against those actions," he said in a "critical alert" dispatched by Senator Session's office. Senator Sessions and several outside groups said Obama could change immigration policies between trading partners “at will” without any Congressional oversight. "The plain language of TPA provides avenues for Obama and trading partners to facilitate the expanded movement of foreign workers into the U.S. -- including issuing visitor visas that are used as worker visas," said Senator Sessions. The bases of that charge is a phrase in TPA calling it a "living agreement." Sessions said that means that they can be changed after Congress approves them, and also that countries can be added in the future, including China. "It leaves it open for a president to change it without Congressional approval," warned Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies. "Congress should not surrender its authority to write immigration laws to either the executive branch, to trade negotiators, and definitely not to international trade tribunals," she added.
The Republican Leadership of the House and Senate are planning to give Obama free rein with “Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority”, with full the knowledge of Obama’s very dangerous anti-American track record, and his pro-Marxist/Communist initiatives. Even the most casual observer of Obama’s dangerous foreign policy initiatives can’t help but understand that, in the past 6 ½ years, Obama foreign policy decisions have consistently favored the enemies of the Republic like Radical Islamic Terrorists in Libya, Communist China, Communist North Vietnam, Radical Islamic Terrorists in Iran, Radical Islamic Terrorist in the Muslim Brotherhood, Chavez’s Socialist Venezuela, Castro’s Communist Cuba, and Putin’s anti-American Russia---they have all collectively and repeatedly expressed their intent to destroy the Republic as it was created by the Founding Fathers.
A newly elected pro-American Patriotic US President would judiciously apply trade promotion authority negotiations by entering into separate Trade Treaties with 12 Asian and South American countries, while abiding by the provision of the US Constitution that requires a two thirds majority vote of the US Senate to approve each treaty. The American people need to rise up and oppose Obama’s secret TPA Bill by calling their Senate representatives at (202) 224-3121 and by sending FaxGrams to their Senate and Congressional representatives telling them to reject Obama’s “Fast-Track” authority which will permit Obama to enter into and force the Congress to abide by all UN Treaties, and will also permit Obama to enter into future secret treaties with countries such as Cuba, China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Iraq, Syria, etc. This most recent initiative by Republican leadership in the House and Senate, follows their inept funding of Obamacare, illegal Immigration, and Obama’s wide open southern border policy thru September 2015, is approaching insanity and would be akin to allowing the fox into the chicken coop.

By evaluating an overwhelming amount of evidence that has been building for 6 ½ years, the obvious conclusion personnel with extensive military experience will come to, is that Obama’s military policies have been degrading the finest US military fighting force in history. Over the last 6 ½ years, the US Armed Forces has been hollowed out by Obama, his Social Experiment On Diversity has severely fractured unit cohesiveness, his “Politically Correct Policies” have negatively affected unit morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military is being degraded. Tip of the spear combat units are being compromised by preventing military combat veterans, with a great deal of combat experience, from providing their invaluable operational experience being considered and evaluated, in the debate within the Obama administration, over whether female military personnel should be exposed to hand to hand combat against highly trained enemy infantry units and enemy special operations personnel. None of the below highlighted actions, which have been degrading the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, for the last 6 ½ years, could have been instituted without the willing support of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who should have resigned, rather than execute Obama’s below listed policies that have been degrading the US Armed Forces.
The Flag and General Officer Corps have been prevented from opposing and challenging the hollowing out of the US Armed Forces and the degrading of the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military by the occupant in the Oval Office. A total of 195 Flag, General, and Senior Military Officers, who may have disagreed with Obama’s “Politically Correct Policies’ and his “Social Experiment on Diversity” that was negatively affecting unit cohesiveness, the moral, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, were purged. Senior enlisted military personnel who utilized their right to complain thru the chain of command about many of the new policies, to express their concerns, were also been purged, and in some cases were court martialed and dishonorably discharged.
The US Army is being reduced to the manning level that existed prior to WWII. The US Navy is being reduce to the number of ships it had prior to WWI down from President Regan’s 584 ship Navy to Obama’s 284 ships Navy today (1/3 of those ships are going thru shipyard availability and modernizations programs). Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert told lawmakers that the Navy would need a 450-ship fleet, in order to meet the global needs of combatant commanders. The most effective long range offensive missile in the US Navy arsenal, the Tomahawk Missile (TLAM), is being scrapped by Obama. The TLAM combines accuracy, range lethality, mobility defense against being jammed, is relatively low cost, and is simple to fix and change targets.
When the Navy reordered 980 TLAMs to bring its inventory current, with the most up-to-date models, not only was the request denied by Obama’s civilian appointees at DOD, the decision was taken to completely end production of all TLAMs in fiscal 2016. No orders for the TLAM will be allowed to be placed after autumn 2015, and there is no replacement missile system under development or in the works to take its place. NO STRATEGIC JUSTIFICATION HAS BEEN OFFERED TO THE US NAVY BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO ACCOUNT FOR THE CANCELLATION OF THIS VERY EFFECTIVE WEAPON. The TLAM’s usefulness as a weapon system in combat will expire in 5 years.
In violation of a Federal Law which requires the President to seek approval from Congress in advance of the release of prisoners from the Naval Prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GITMO), Obama released 5 dangerous Radical Islamic Taliban Terrorist Generals from GITMO for an Army deserter, Sgt Bowe Bergdahl. According to an elected Combat Veteran For Congress, Cong Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (D-CA-52), a ransom was paid in February 2014 to an Afghanistan middleman by Spec Ops personnel which was another violation of Federal Law by Obama. Obama doubled down and released 5 more dangerous terrorists from GITMO while Americans were distracted by the massive press reports of Obama’s Executive Order preventing ICE from deporting 5 million Illegal Aliens, an in effect cancelling all deportation except in some very special cases. The occupant of the Oval Office then released an additional 6 dangerous terrorist from GITMO, labeling then as refugees---now terrorists are designated as refugees by Obama. Those releases are an assault on the US military who captured them, sometimes at a loss of life, because they will soon be killing American servicemen again.
The “Justification” given by the Obama administration for the exchange of 5 dangerous Radical Islamic Taliban Terrorist Generals was “We leave no military personnel behind”:
(1) Obama and Hilary Clinton left 4 Americans behind, including 2 Navy SEALs, to be murdered in Benghazi by Radical Islamic Terrorists, while there were armed aircraft less than 2 hours away that could have saved their lives, but the US Armed Forces was prevented from rescuing of the 4 Americans, because Obama refused to execute “Cross Border Authority” which would have been required to authorize a military rescue mission—violating the. Sacred trust “We leave no military personnel behind”:
(2) Obama left Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi, USMC behind (an Iraqi War Combat Marine Veteran suffering from PTSD) to be tortured in a Mexican prison for over 7 months; his only crime was to mistakenly cross the wide open southern border because of bad signage on the US side of the border--- violating the. Sacred trust “We leave no military personnel behind”:
(3) Since January 2012, for over 1600 days, Obama has left Sgt Amir Hekmati, USMC behind (an Iraqi War Combat Marine Veteran) to be tortured in an Iranian prison; his only crime was to seek and obtain permission form the Iranian Government, in advance, to visit his dying grandmother---- violating the. Sacred trust “We leave no military personnel behind”:
In January of 2013, the Obama administration announced its decision to make female military personnel eligible for assignment to direct ground combat units by January 2016, including the infantry.. The Obama civilian appointees in the Pentagon are forcing the US Army to insert women into the one of the most grueling training regimens in the entire military establishment, the U.S. Army Rangers. They are planning to reduce the physical requirements for military personnel to qualify as a Ranger so that women will be able to pass the rigorous training and qualifications; that will negatively affect the “Combat Effectiveness” of one of the most important tip of the spear units in the Army.
A study was conducted by the British Ministry of Defense, which tears to shreds the case for women in close ground combat. One of the findings of the study was that under conditions of high intensity close quarter battle, “team cohesion is of such significance that the employment of women in this environment would represent a risk to the “Combat Effectiveness” and there would be no gains in terms of “Combat Effectiveness” to offset it.” The question is whether women should purposely be placed in situations where they must close with the enemy, one on one, in extremes of physical endurance, climate, and terrain, brutal and violent death, injury, horror, and fear, just to satisfy the “Politically Correct” feminist agenda.
Obama is planning to compromise extremely high standards of tip of the spear units that have resulted in outstanding combat results for the last 75 years, Obama’s compromise of those tip of the spear units will be destruction to the “Combat Effectiveness” of units like the US Marine Corps Infantry, US Army Rangers, the Green Berets, Delta Force, and US Navy SEALs, and will disrupt the “Warrior Spirit” and “Ethos” so carefully nurtured over the years by the finest military force in the world.
China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, and the American people are fully aware that the military strength has been systematically degraded by Obama for 6 ½ years, and believe that the National Security of the United States has been severely compromised by Obama’s hollowing out of the US Armed Forces, and by Obama’s willful intent to ignore the external military threats to the Republic. At the same time, during those 6 ½ years, China, Russia, and Iran have been building modern conventional and nuclear military weapons systems------the US military has not be able to keep pace because of sequestration and being bogged down fighting al Q’ieda, the Taliban, and ISIL. While ISIL expands, is prosecuting the genocide of Christian, and developing sleeper cells in all 50 states, Obama does very little (ISIL recently stated they now have 71 trained Radical Islamic Terrorists operating in the US).
Obama is keeping his promise, made to Russian Prime Minister in an overheard comment on an open mike prior to the 2012 election, when he said that his hands would not be tied after the election. Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine after its successful the naked aggression and conquest of Crimea; that has all but been ignored by Obama and Ukraine’s request for major defensive weapons systems for over 2 years have fallen on deaf ears in Washington. Russia announced it is shipping S-300 anti-air missiles to Iran to prevent Israel from striking its nuclear weapons development facilities; Obama’s only comment was that he is not surprised.. Russia is upgrading its Naval base in Cuba, while Obama removes Cuba from the US State Department’s list of state sponsored terrorist nations and recognizing Cuba while Cuba is supporting the terrorist activities of FARC and Venezuela in South America
The Department of Homeland issued a bulletin to all police agencies in 2009, naming all military Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as potential terrorist. At the same time Obama is allowing hundreds of thousands of Muslims to enter the US thru the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program while preventing intelligent analysts from checking their backgrounds for possible ties to ISIL and Al Q’ieda Radical Islamic Terrorists. At the same time, the Greek Catholic Relief Agency has stated over 300,000 Syrian and Assyrian Christian refugees are being prevented from entering the US.
Obama has imposed new and dangerous Rules Of Engagement (ROE) for the US Armed Forces executed by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen, and retained by his replacement General Martin Dempsey. Each year since 2008 when the new ROE took effect, 2049 more military personnel per year have been Wounded In Action, each year, for 5 years (a total of 10,245 more personnel have been wounded and/or maimed for life), an increase of 378%. Each year since 2008 when the new and “dangerous” ROE took effect, 368 more military personnel have been Killed In Action, each year, for 5 years (a total of 1840 more personnel have been killed), an increase of 458%.
Obama has been launching attacks on the profound religious beliefs of Christians in the US Armed Forces, in violation of the Freedom of Religion guaranteed to every American in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Chaplains are having their sermons and even places where they can pray censored to be sure they are Politically Correct. Chaplains reading letters from Cardinals to their parishioners in the pulpit have been prevented from doing so. Military personnel are prevented from having bibles in their work places. Chaplains are being prevented from offering bibles to patients in military hospital rooms, unless they specifically ask for them. Base commanders on military installations are prevented from allowing bibles to be placed in the base hotel rooms. The massive 6 ½ year assault on Christians in the US Military by the Obama Administration is outlined in the video that can be watched by clicking on this link from the Thomas More Law Center; http://bit.ly/HAfq8Z . It is a dangerous and extreme anti-Christian program being driven by Obama himself against members of the US Armed Forces; Obama has not stopped this unprecedented assault. What would President George Washington, President Lincoln, President Teddy Roosevelt, President Truman, President Kennedy, President Eisenhower, and President Reagan have to say about Obama’s shameful assault on “Freedom of Religion” in the US Armed Forces?
Open homosexuality in the US Armed Forces has been decreed by Obama, in violation of General George Washington’s 238 year old US Military Regulations. Gay Rights Political Events are now held on US Military bases in violation of US Military Regulations which prevent any political activities on any military installation. US Military Color guards and military personnel in uniform have been ordered to march in Gay Rights parades (apolitical event) in violation of US Military Regulations. The civilian appointees of the Obama administration in the Pentagon, have been trying to cover up the fact that 10,400 straight military male enlisted personnel have been sexually assaulted by gay male military personnel in their barracks and on their ships---creating retention problems, and that thousands of straight female members in the military hae been sexually assaulted by lesbian military personnel.
Poster in Officer's Club, Vandenberg AFB, CA:
During the 2010, 2012, and 2014 elections, the Obama administration, through Attorney General Eric Holder, actively encouraged State Secretaries of Democratically controlled states, to disregard Federal Voting Laws that required the timely mailing out absentee ballots to active duty military personnel, so they can receive the ballots on time, in order to return them on a date specific, so they can be counted on election day. As a result, hundreds of thousands of military votes have never been counted, denying members of the US Armed Forces their basic fundamental American rights to vote.
Although the Veterans Administration is supposed to support the interests of military veterans, yet it has slowed down the process of allowing veterans to file claims for benefits to the point where veterans are waiting for months and even years to have their claims processed. When veterans go to the VA, because of new regulations imposed by Obama, they are being asked if they own firearms, if they have ever been depressed, and if their spouses handle the family finances which is against privacy laws. Then that information is being used to declare them mentally incompetent and deny them their Constitutional rights to own, purchase, or possess firearms in accordance with the 5th and 2nd Amendments to the US Constitution. Eric Holder’s Justice Department has put them on a list of Americans who are prevented from owning firearms in violation of their 2nd Amendment rights. Many Veterans cannot get help with their medical issues, and have to wait hours on the phone to get any response at all; an average of 23 Veterans are committing suicide each day.
The Army ROTC cadets at Arizona State University were recently humiliated by being forced to walk around on campus in full military uniforms wearing Red Pumps for an event called “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” to raise awareness of sexual violence against women on college campuses. As reported by the Washington Times, in 2014, the Army encouraged participation in the April 2015 event. However: this year, the ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event “that became mandatory.” Or, they were “voluntold” they have to participate or be faced with discipline action. The Cadets were forced to walk around out of uniform (because they were not wearing military boots) in violation of Army Regulation AR670-1, entitled Wear and Appearance of Army Uniform and Insignia---“A military member must wear his or her uniform in a way that projects an image of discipline and order and is prohibited from wearing a combination of civilian and military clothing.”
A twelve month survey of internal data of personnel in the US Army from the period through early 2015 was obtained by “USA Today”, it shows starling negative findings of their very low morale, including in the findings are the following:
- More than half of some 770,000 soldiers (52% or 403,564 soldiers) are pessimistic about their future in the military, agreeing with statements such as “I rarely count on good things happening to me.”
- 48% or about 370,000 soldiers are unhappy in their jobs, have little satisfaction in or commitment to their jobs, and would have chosen another if they had it to do over again. Only 28% felt good about what they do.
- More than half reported poor nutrition and sleep. Only 14% said they are eating right and getting enough rest.
- Two-thirds were borderline or worse for an area called “catastrophic thinking,” where poor scores mean the soldier has trouble adapting to change or dwells on the worst possible things happening.
- Nearly 40% or about 300,000 soldiers didn’t trust their immediate supervisor or fellow soldiers in their unit or didn’t feel respected or valued. Only 32% felt good about bosses and peers.
General Martin Dempsey has been trying to push the US Marine Corps to lower standards for women in order to let them pass the Infantry Officer’s Course, regardless of how it will affect the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Marine Corps. If a lower standard for Infantry Officers is forced upon the US Marine Corps, it would result in weakening the infantry arm of the US Marine Corps needlessly, in order to comply with Obama’s “Political Correctness.” Senator John McCain told Fox News’ American Newsroom, “General Dempsey is the most disappointing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that I have ever seen. and I have seen many of them. He has supported the plan to completely withdraw from Afghanistan. He’s basically been the echo chamber for the president, and one of the reasons why we are in the situation that we’re in, in the world today…..is because of his lack of either knowledge or candor about the situation in the Middle East, and it has done great damage.”
The real threat to the National Security interests of the United States and the American citizens is the internal threat, the occupant of Oval Office who has repeatedly said he doesn’t want the United States to be the only Superpower in the world..

America has a Judeo/Christian ethos; 90% of Americans believe in God and 50% of them go to church and synagogue every week. Christian members of the US military are wondering long and hard about joining and/or making the US Armed Forces a career. This concern by Christians to possibly avoid a US Armed Forces that oppresses Christians appears to fit in with Obama’s Social Experiment On Diversity, in order to minimize Christian influence in the US military. The Social Experiment On Diversity that has been changing the make-up of the US Armed Forces is seriously eroding unit cohesiveness, unit morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness “ of the US military.
Chaplains are having their sermons and even the places where they are allowed to pray controlled and censored to be sure their statements are “Politically Correct” and in keeping with the what the Obama civilian appointees in DOD want them to say. Chaplains have been prevented from reading letters from their Cardinals in the pulpit to their parishioners. Chaplains have been prevented from giving bibles to patients in their hospital rooms. Catholic Chaplins who don’t believe in the use of birth control pills and abortion are prevented from preaching their religious beliefs in the pulpit. Army Ranger Chaplain Joseph Lawton was punished and served with a “Letter of Concern” for referring to solace and comfort he receives in his darkest moments by reading the Psalms of King David in the Old Testament of the Bible, while he was conducting a suicide prevention seminar for Combat Veterans suffering from PTSD.
The Defense in Marriage Act, a Federal Law, has been violated and disobeyed by Obama, and Holder without repealing it. Chaplains who support that Federal Law because of their religious beliefs have been discriminated against. Obama’s civilian DOD appointees have been intolerant toward Chaplains who do not believe in same sex marriage, supposedly in the defense of tolerance, to make them comply, which is not only hypocritical, but is bigoted. So if a Chaplain’s well held religious beliefs don’t allow him to support same sex marriage, he is threatened with career ending punishment which would result in his failure to be promoted, and/or would result in his removal from the US Armed Forces. That treatment of Chaplains and Christians who agree with their Chaplains beliefs have been discriminated against and oppressive by the civilian appointees of the Obama administration at DOD.
Military personnel are prevented from having bibles at their desks in their work place, and military base commanders have been instructed not to allow bibles to be placed in base hotel rooms.
Open homosexuality in the US Armed Forces has been approved by Obama’s Executive Orders, in a major “CHANGE” to General George Washington’s 238 year old US Military Regulations. Last year because of the “CHANGE” of General George Washington’s Military Regulations, the US Armed Forces authorized the recruiting of a large influx of gay males and women to join the US military for the first time in US history. Last year 10,400 straight members of the US Armed Forces were sexually assaulted in their barracks and aboard their ships. The Navy has had straight female enlisted women sexually assaulted in their barracks and aboard their ships by lesbian crew members; and nearly 9, 000 female members of the US Armed Forces were sexually assaulted last year.
Gay Rights Political Events and gatherings are now being held on US Military bases and in the Pentagon in violation of US Military Regulations which prohibit political events of any kind. US Military Color guards and military personnel in uniform are now being ordered to march in Gay Rights Parades (a political event) in violation of US Military Regulations, while at the same time, members of the US Armed Forces have been prevented from attending Christian events in their uniforms.
In 2014, at the Iron Mountain VA Hospital in Wisconsin, Chaplain Bob Mueller, relayed an unsettling experience he experienced in a conversation he had with one of Obama’s civilian appointee in the Veterans Administration, when he said “a couple of months ago, an order came down from Washington, DC to all Chaplains in VA Hospitals across the nation, ordering them to cover all icons associated with Christianity in VA Hospitals, like photos of Christ, crosses, and stained glass windows, because there are Christian symbols in stained glass.” Chaplain Mueller was told to “stop talking about Jesus, and to stop reading the scripture out loud.” He said that the Obama administration has issued the same orders “to cover all things associated with Christianity” to all VA Chapels across the country.” Clicking on the below listed link will verify Chaplain Mueller’s report:
The Flag and General Officer, who have always practiced and supported Judeo/Christian ethics, who opposed the hollowing out of the US Armed Forces, and policies that degraded the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military by the occupant in the Oval Office, have been systematically eliminated over the last 6 years. A total of 195 Flag, General, and Senior Military Officers, who disagreed with Obama’s “Politically Correct” destructive military policies, and his executive Order that changed the US Military into first major military force in the world that openly gay, a new and destructive policy that has negatively affected unit cohesiveness, the morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, have been purged by General Dempsey—those that remain have been conditioned not to defend Christianity. Those 195 purged Senior Officers would have opposed the on-going attack on Christians in the US Armed Forces, but they are no longer there to defend the Chaplains and the enlisted Christian personnel. Senior enlisted military personnel who also practiced and supported Judeo/Christian ethics, and disagreed with an openly gay military, tried to utilized their right to complain thru the chain of command, and to express their concerns about the “Social Experiment on Diversity”, have also been purged, and in some cases have been court martialed and dishonorably discharged.
Although the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution guarantees Freedom of Religion, Christian members of the US Armed Forces have had their religious rights systematically violated and oppressed, as previously discussed above and in the below listed article. The suppression of Christianity in the US Armed Forces is triggering an exodus from the US military of many Christians who wanted to make the US military a career when they joined. After their first tour of duty, while witnessing how Chaplains and their Christian religious beliefs were oppressed, they have turned against making the US Armed Forces a career. The elimination of thousands of Christian personnel from the US Armed Forces with their well held religious beliefs and ethics in the ranks, and having them replaced will personnel with a different set of beliefs in keeping with Obama’s beliefs, will change the nature of the US Armed Forces.
CRACKDOWN ON CHRISTIANS TRIGGERS EXODUS FROM MILITARY
'They're starting to wonder, is this going to be a place where I'm welcomed?'
Greg Corombos is news director for Radio America.
A leading defender of Christians in the military says the crackdown on the free religious expression of Christians in uniform is increasing despite Pentagon assurances to the contrary, leading active-duty personnel to re-evaluate their careers and young Americans and their parents to reconsider service at all.
Recent discipline for military chaplains dispensing biblical counsel have made national headlines, but a recent piece in the Washington Times suggests enlistment numbers are in danger of dropping as well.
Liberty Institute represents chaplains in two high-profile cases as well as several other personnel reprimanded for their free expression of Christian beliefs. Senior counsel Michael Berry said the American people are paying attention and getting increasingly worried about what’s happening in the military.
“A great deal of Americans of faith, which is still a majority of our country, are looking at the environment and climate within our federal government and military more specifically and seeing case after case, report after report,” Berry said in an interview with WND and Radio America.
He said the growing number of stories is causing committed Christians to ask some uncomfortable questions.
“They’re starting to wonder, ‘Is this going to be a place where I’m welcomed? Is this going to be a place where I’m tolerated? Am I going to be required to keep my faith in the closet, so to speak?’ Or are they going to be allowed, which has always been the practice in our country up until this point, to freely exercise their religion in accordance with their sincerely held beliefs as the Constitution allows?” asked Berry, a military vet who made his own difficult decision to leave the armed forces as he saw religious liberties eroding.
“I was on active duty, and I began to see the writing on the wall,” he said. “I realized this is not the military I grew up in. This is not the military that I was raised to believe in and to support. It’s changing, and I realized it was time for me to make a move.”
And Berry is not the only one thinking long and hard about military service as the right career path.
“I’ve had a lot of mothers and fathers ask me. They say, ‘Mike, I served and my son or daughter wants to follow in my footsteps. But, as proud as I am of my military service, I’m not sure I want my son or daughter to be serving in our military anymore, given what’s going on,’” Berry said. “That’s very scary for our country if that kind of conversation and dialogue is now happening.”
It’s difficult to get solid numbers on the impact religious freedom restrictions are having on recruiting and retention. Berry said the military almost always keep mum about drops in recruiting and retention and it never breaks down the reasons for the declines.
“It doesn’t behoove the military to report that they’re having problems with retention,” he said. “A group like a chaplain’s corps is not going to say, ‘We’re having a hard time attracting new chaplains’ because that doesn’t present them in a very favorable light.”
Liberty Institute is providing counsel for Navy Chaplain Wes Modder, an Assemblies of God minister who was removed from his position after answering questions from personnel who wanted to know what the Bible said about homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.
Another client is Army Ranger Chaplain Joseph Lawhorn, who was served with a letter of concern after a soldier complained about Lawhorn telling a suicide-prevention seminar that in his darkest moments he found comfort and solace in the Psalms of King David while also endorsing many secular resources.
Berry said the protest was baseless and can be seen as opportunistic by any objective analysis.
“[The soldier] didn’t even complain to Chaplain Lawhorn or the chain of command,” he said. “He went and complained to an outside media outlet, who then published the story. That’s what really precipitated that whole incident and led to Chaplain Lawhorn being punished.”
In the Washington Times article, Defense Department spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen is quoted as extolling religious freedom and how it continues to be cherished in the military.
“The Department of Defense respects, places a high value on and supports by policy the rights of members of the military services to observe the tenets of their respective religions or to have no religious beliefs,” said Christensen in the article.
“The mission of the chaplain corps is to provide care and the opportunity for service members, their families and other authorized personnel to exercise their constitutional right to the free exercise of religion,” he said.
But Berry said the impressive rhetoric is not matched by the facts.
“If what the DOD spokesperson is saying is true, then why on earth are chaplains like Chaplain Lawhorn and Chaplain Modder being threatened with career-ending punishment?” he asked. “Simply because they hold religious beliefs that are no longer popular? I would seriously question the DOD’s commitment to religious freedom is that’s allowed to stand without challenge.”
Lawhorn and Modder join other Liberty Institute clients whose careers are in limbo over their expression of personal beliefs. The list includes an Air Force senior master sergeant whose career is in doubt after he voiced support for traditional marriage. A commanding officer in the U.S. Army is fighting back after complaining that heterosexual soldiers are being treated unfairly compared to homosexuals.
“That’s just the tip of the iceberg,” Berry said. “There are dozens of cases beyond what Liberty Institute handles dealing with religious hostility in this country. And like I said, within the military, it’s on the rise.”
While the Defense Department publicly professes great respect for religious freedom, anti-Christian activists are not hiding their agenda. The Washington Times article also features Military Religious Freedom Foundation President Michael Weinstein, who says chaplains who hold to biblical views on sexuality need to keep their mouths shut or find another line of work.
“You can continue to believe that internally, but if you have to act on that, the right thing to do is to get out of the U.S. military, because you have no right to tell a member of the military that they’re inferior because of the way they were born,” Weinstein is quoted as saying.
Berry finds that analysis legally ludicrous.
“Mr. Weinstein could not be more legally wrong,” he said. “The Constitution, federal law and military regulations all forcefully protect the right of service members to hold and to express their sincerely held religious beliefs. The military has a very high legal standard they have to meet if they’re going to try to censor or prohibit the free exercise of a service member’s sincerely held beliefs.”

How fortunate the nation was when it was united under the leadership of a Patriotic US President right after 9/11.
The Yankees played a professional baseball game in an overflowing Yankee stadium, despite a terrorist attack on the nation, in New York City, Washington, and Stonycreek, PA, by Al Q’ieda that killed 3000 Americans; the below listed link will reacquaint you with that memorable baseball game.
There is a distinct difference today from the unity the nation experienced after 9/11. This afternoon the Baltimore Oriels will play a professional baseball game against the White Sox in an empty Baltimore stadium. It’s the first time in the history of the nation that a professional baseball game is being played to an empty stadium, because it is too dangerous to have mixed races attend the game. It is a result of the racial divisive policies promoted by Holder and the very different occupant in the Oval Office; their racial divisive policies have resulted in repeated racial strife over the last 6 years.
After 9/11 and prior to that date, we never had an occupant of the Oval Office who was intentionally creating divisions in American by employing Saul Alinsky’s principles to divide the American people by races, religion, economic classes, tarnishing the badges of all good law enforcement officers, distribution of wealth, and by pitting unions against business.
Dividing the nation by stigmatizing those who work very hard, are successful, and have good incomes; instigating the envy of those successful Americans, by those who are not as successful with lower incomes.
Dividing the nation by vilifying the well held religious beliefs of Christians who do not believe in abortion, in same sex marriages, in living a conservative/straight life style, and not supporting the liberal gay life style.
Dividing the nation by American citizens and illegal immigrants who are receiving medical benefits, food stamps, free education, welfare payments, and drivers licenses that allow them to illegally vote, while undermining the authority of US Border Patrol officers and ICE Officers.
Dividing the nation by law abiding citizens, Law Enforcement Officers, and the judiciary who oppose violations of Federal Laws and abide by the US Constitution while continually vilifying law enforcement officers and minimizing the fault of felons.
Dividing the nation by promoting Socialism/Marxism and distributing the wealth of those who do not work and pay no taxes, while saddling hard working and successful Americans with high income taxes.
Dividing the nation by mobilizing Unions and former ACORN activists in their new organizational to oppose Americans operating/owning their own businesses who support The Free Enterprise System that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind.
For 6 years, the current occupant of the Oval Office has been intentionally dividing the American people and vilified law enforcement officers, as outlined above, employing Saul Alinsky’s principles, with the help of the left of center liberal media establishment, and the support of the Harry Reid/Nancy Pelosi led Democratic Congress.
Today, the nation is witnessing Hillary Clinton continuing in the divisive policies, in her speech at Columbia University, calling for a stop to “the mass incarceration” of blacks, as if they are innocent and are incarcerated because of no fault of their own, leaving the impression it is the fault of law enforcement and the judicial system.
American voters will be able to finally put a stop to the racially divisive and anti-law enforcement policies at the polls in November of 2016.

The genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians by ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and Muslim Brotherhood trained Radical Islamic Terrorists, on the Plains of Ninveh in Iraq, has resulted in 3.5 million Muslim and Christian refugees seeking relief. In addition to the hundreds of thousands Muslim refugees who have already been given entry into the US by Obama, more than 360,000 Muslim refugees are being targeted for additional resettlement in the US by the UN Resettlement Program. Obama is encouraging the acceptance of more Muslim refugees, for resettlement in the US, than all the other countries in the world combined. When the UN Muslim Resettlement Program began, it was run and controlled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by agencies of her State Department. Obama directed Hillary to let the Muslim refugees enter the US without slowing the process down, by the time consuming investigation of their backgrounds to determine if they had terrorist ties. On Obama’s orders, Hillary placed all entering Muslims on a fast track to obtain US citizenship. Obama ordered Hillary to resettle & integrate the Muslim refugees in communities throughout the US without informing elected state and city officials and local law enforcement officials where they were being resettled; this has been going since Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
George Soros’ is funding the resettlement of Muslim Refugees thru his organization, Welcoming America, and Welcome America has been working with LA Raza to also integrate millions of Illegal Aliens to be resettled throughout the US with the funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute, without informing elected state and city officials and local law enforcement officials where they are being resettled. Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) sent a letter to the White House on January 28th citing “serious national security concerns” about the UN Refugee Program which is resettling and integrating Muslim refugees in communities throughout the US without investigating their backgrounds to determine if they have terrorist ties, and implored Obama not to let it become a “back door for Jihadists.”
For the first time in 6 years only “ONE” of the 435 US Congressmen, Cong Trey Gowdy (R-SC), is demanding that Secretary of State John Kerry immediately cease the hidden location where Muslim refugees will be resettled in his Congressional District! Cong Gowdy is demanding that a list of specific questions be answered (listed in the below listed article) directly by Secretary of State Kerry, himself, and that all resettlement activity of Muslim refugees in the Spartanburg, SC UN Resettlement Program cease until he receives a personal response to his questions from Kerry. Cong Gowdy demanded that South Carolina State and city officials be provided with specific details about who is going to pay for the health care, resettlement costs, transportation costs, education of refugee children, the welfare costs of refugee families, food stamps, and housing costs of thousands of Muslim refugees. We strongly recommend that all Americans write their Congressional representatives and demand that they each ask Secretary of State Kerry to cease the resettlement of Muslim refugees in their Congressional Districts, until Kerry answers the below listed questions posed by Cong Trey Gowdy.
The FBI has repeatedly warned the Obama administration and the State Department that there is a strong likelihood that ISIL and Al Q’ieda has ordered its trained Radical Islamic Terrorists to sneak into the US posing as “refugees”, as they have been doing in large numbers in Norway and Europe. Yet, Obama has refused to direct the US Immigration Service to complete background investigations on Muslim refugees, to determine if the hundreds of thousands incoming Muslim refugees have terrorist ties, before they are allowed to enter the US thru the UN Refugee Program. That refusal of Obama to do background investigations on Muslim refugees, to ensure that they do not have terrorist ties, before being allowed entry into the US, and before they are integrated in thousands of communities across the US, is a further display of Obama’s gross negligence in upholding his oath of office to protect the security of Americans citizens, and the National Security interest of the United States.
The stealthy massive influx of only Muslim Refugees from the UN Refugee Program has been underway for 6 years, resettling hundreds of thousands of refugees in unsuspecting communities in 49 states, while keeping elected officials in thousands of cities throughout the Republic in the dark about where they are being resettled. According to the Greek Catholic Relief Agency, to date, 300,000+ Syrian and Assyrian Christians refugees are not being allowed to enter the United States. However, thousands of Muslim refugees are being allowed to enter from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Bosnia, Libya, Egypt, and Yemen, and the FBI has developed and prosecuted terrorist cases where Muslim refugees, with terrorist ties, have been charged and convicted with providing material support for foreign Radical Islamic Terrorists organizations.
To date, it is estimated that 180+ Muslim refugees, who obtained US citizenship, have left the United States to train with ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab, and participated in the ongoing genocide of Christians by burning them alive, shooting them, beheading them, crucifying them, raping & murdering young Christians girls, and selling Christians women into slavery. The Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Royal Family in England, the UK Prime Minister, the King of Jordan, the President of Egypt, the President of Kurdistan, the Prime Minister of Japan, the President of Russia, the Prime Minister of Australian, President George W. Bush, Reverend Billy Graham, the Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Prime Ministers of every NATO nations, the Prime Minister of Israel, Christian Religious Leaders of every denomination from throughout the world, the current crop of candidates seeking to run for President of the United States, 51 Congressmen who petitioned Obama, US Senators, Christians worldwide, and the Secretary General of the United Nations have all expressed their revulsion of the barbaric massacres being prosecuted by ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and members of the Muslim Brotherhood. They have all raised their voices in unison to demand that the bloody genocide of Christians in Africa, Syria, and on the Plains of Nineveh in Iraq stop. To date Obama has refused to condemn the wholesale genocide of Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists and is the only leader of a non-communist country who has not called for a stop to the bloody genocide------Obama’s continued silence is deafening and says a great deal about who Obama really is!
President Putin of Russia told reporters, “As to the Middle East and Christians, the situation is terrible. We have spoken about it many times and we believe that the international community is not doing enough to protect the Christian population of the Middle East (Putin is speaking out and more concerned about ISIL’s genocide of Christians; Obama refuses to speak out against the genocide of Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists). Many of those newly trained Radical Islamic Terrorists with US citizenship have been returning to the US, without criminal charges being filed against them by the Obama administration for being agents of foreign terrorist organizations. They should be incarcerated, tried as anti-American terrorists, sentenced to prison terms for sedition, have their passports and citizenships voided, and when their prison terms are completed they should be removed from the United States for life.
ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab Islamic Terrorists have not only been entering the United States thru the UN Muslim Refugee Program, they have been targeting the wide open southern border for entry over the last 6 years (the Director of the FBI recently informed the nation that the FBI has identified Islamic Terrorist Sleeper Cells in all 50 states). In October 2014, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Capt-USMR (R-CA-52), an endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, notified the national press corps that US Border Patrolmen warned him that there were Radical Islamic Terrorist training camps south of the Mexican border. But that report was quickly covered up, because the Obama administration, the Democratic and Republican Congressional leadership, and the left of center liberal media establishment did not want to expose just how dangerous to the National Security of the Republic, that Obama and the Congress’ continued failure to close the wide open southern border has become, and just how dangerous it was to the safety of the lives of innocent American men, women, and children.
Now 6 months after Cong Duncan Hunter’s warning about Terrorist training camps south of the Mexican border, Judicial Watch completed a detailed report that ISIL is operating a base terrorist camp about 8 miles from the US border city of El Paso, Texas, in an area known as “Anapra”, situated just west of Ciudad Juarez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIL base terrorist camp is located west of Ciudad Juarez, in Puerto Palomas, close to the New Mexico cities of Columbus and Deming, and those US cities are being targeted for easy entry into the United States. In a Joint Operation, the Mexican Army and Federal Law Enforcement Officers reported they discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu with detailed plans for Fort Bliss, Texas, where the 1st Armored Division is based (the Joint Operation sweep recovered Muslim prayer rugs, supplies, and many documents). The Republican and Democratic leadership of the Congress’ refuses to close the wide open southern border in the same manner as the San Diego Border Sector has been securely closed for many years (Congressman Duncan L. Hunter/Ret, a US Army Vietnam Combat Ranger, before he retired from Congress, ensured that the San Diego Border Sector was securely closed, when he was Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee).
ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab have been infiltrating well trained Radical Islamic Terrorist thru the wide open US southern border with impunity, entering very easily as chaperones with thousands of children from Central America (those children are carrying many infectious diseases, and are being given immediate entry, then given immediate release to go anywhere they want to go to in the US; they are still not being medically quarantined in violation of Federal Immigration Laws). Obama, and the Democrat and Republican leaders of Congress, continue to look the other way while allowing hundreds of thousands infected children from Central America and an unknown numbers of trained Radical Islamic Terrorists killers to enter the US to murder unsuspecting American men, women, and children. They are complicit in their “gross negligence” and are guilty of perpetrating “crimes against the American people” by their continued “gross negligence” in intentionally keeping the southern border wide open---it is a violation of their oaths of office to protect the lives of defenseless American men, women, and children.
A major security problem, that the US and NATO nations are faced with, is that anyone holding a passport from a NATO nation, has cross border access to any other NATO member nations as a courtesy, and by simply presenting their passports are given entry. Since thousands of Europeans and 180+ Americans have been recruited by ISIL to travel to Plains of Nineveh to execute the on-going genocide against Christians in Syria and Iraq, those trained ISIL Radical Islamic Terrorists holding a NATO nation passport, will be allowed entry by Custom Officers into the US (Egypt recently accused Turkey of issuing 10,000 passports to ISIL Radical Islamic Terrorists who would also have access to every NATO nation). Despite the fact that the external security threat from ISIL Al Q’ieda, and Muslim Brotherhood trained Radical Islamic Terrorists continues to increase, Obama continues to minimize that growing and very dangerous external threat, and refuses to let anyone in the US government identify the true nature of the threat as being from Radical Islamic Terrorists.
The Obama administration is not arresting many of the returning 180+ Americans with passports who traveled to the Middle East to be trained as terrorists by ISIL, is resettling & integrating hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees in 49 states while hiding where they are being resettled from state & local elected officials & law enforcement agencies, is refusing to investigate the background on hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees flooding into the US from the UN Refugees Resettlement Program to determine if they have terrorist ties, is refusing to secure the wide open southern border thru which ISIL & Al Q’ieda Radical Islamic Terrorists have been entering the US, and has prevented the US government (Intelligence Agencies, the FBI, the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, and the US Armed Forces) from identifying the major threat to the security of the Republic as Radical Islamic Terrorists who have been perpetrating genocide daily against thousands of Christians in the Middle East and in Africa. The most serious threat to the security of the Republic and the lives of all Americans are the policies that the occupant of the Oval Office has put in place over the last 6 years, and the leftists, Marxists, Communist, and the members of the Muslim Brotherhood he has appointed to positions of leadership in the Obama administration (one of the Communist member of the Obama administration who was unmasked, Van Jones, was forced to resign).
CONGRESSMAN DEMANDS ANSWERS ON INFLUX OF SYRIAN REFUGEES
Republican Congressman wants end to secrecy in choosing resettlement sites
LEO HOHMANN About | Email | Archive
Leo Hohmann is a news editor for WND. He has been a reporter and editor at several suburban newspapers in the Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina, areas and also served as managing editor of Triangle Business Journal in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., has sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry demanding information about the reported pending move of dozens of foreign refugees from Syria, North Africa and elsewhere into South Carolina.
Gowdy is chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee responsible for the refugee resettlement program overseen by the State Department. Yet, he says in the letter, he was kept totally in the dark about the proposed resettlement of refugees into his own district in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Ann Corcoran, a longtime watchdog over the refugee program and author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, says Gowdy is the first member of Congress to demand answers to basic questions about this program since she took up her crusade eight years ago to expose secrecy, fraud and lax oversight in the program.
The program has flown under the radar for more than 25 years but controversy flared in February when a top FBI counter-terrorism official, Michael Steinbach, testified before the House Homeland Security committee and said the U.S. has no way to vet the Syrian refugees for possible connections to the Islamic State, also called ISIS, and other terrorist organizations. As WND reported, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, sent a letter to the White House Jan. 28citing “serious national security concerns” about the Syrian refugee program and imploring Obama to not let it become a “back door for jihadists.”
In fact, dozens of Islamic refugees from Iraq, Somalia and other countries have already been charged and convicted of providing material support to foreign terrorist organizations while others have left the country to fight for ISIS in Syria and al-Shabaab in Somalia.
Now, Gowdy has taken the fight for information on exactly how this program works to a new level, demanding answers for the Spartanburg resettlement from none other than John Kerry.
But he needs to go one step further, Corcoran said. As chairman of the subcommittee charged with overseeing this program, Gowdy must demand answers for the communities in all 49 states that participate in the U.S. refugee program, not just his own state or district. That would require holding hearings, she said, because this issue affects communities across the U.S., not just Spartanburg.
“Maybe due to Gowdy’s swift and decisive action, other communities, which are being kept in the dark, will get some relief,” she said. “This is the first time I’ve ever seen anyone in Congress do this. Trey Gowdy has directed a letter to John Kerry asking all the right questions.”
The U.S. has been taking in an average of about 70,000 refugees per year over the past few years. The refugees are placed in housing and schools and given free healthcare. They are put on a fast track toward full U.S. citizenship, often within five years.
Gowdy has asked Kerry to provide answers on how Spartanburg was selected for the opening of a new resettlement office to be operated by World Relief. He wants to know when the refugees will arrive, how many, and from what countries. He also demanded to know what services will be required, the cost, and how much of the cost will be charged to the federal government.
This is an issue that affects almost every state. The U.S. State Department works with the United Nations to resettle refugees into every state except Wyoming. Charitable organizations such as World Relief, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Services, Episcopal Migration Ministries and the International Rescue Committee operate resettlement offices in 190 communities across the U.S. All of these are private charitable agencies but they receive millions of dollars in federal grants to support their efforts.
WND requested comment from Gowdy Tuesday morning.
“We don’t have any comment at this point beyond our letter sent yesterday,” said Gowdy’s press secretary, Amanda Duvall.
Last week WND reported on the secretive nature of the process in which cities and towns are chosen for the resettlement of foreign refugees, many of them Muslims from areas known to be in upheaval fighting ISIS and other terrorist organizations. Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq, for example, all have devolved into civil sectarian strife, causing the displacement of large numbers of people. Many Christians have been driven from their homes in Iraq and Syria, yet the U.S. has been taking in mostly Muslims from these countries.
And the FBI is not the only intelligence operation warning about the strong likelihood that ISIS will send its militants to Western countries posing as “refugees.”
The Norway’s Police Intelligence Service said in November 2014 that its main concern was individuals misusing the refugee system to bring Syria’s violence to Norway, reported the Nordic Page.
Refugee resettlements are conducted in the U.S. by nine private agencies that contract with the U.S. government, and six of the nine have religious affiliations. These nine contractors in turn subcontract with more than 350 other charitable organizations and churches.
The complete text of Gowdy’s letter, dated April 13, is posted below.
The Honorable John Kerry Secretary U.S. Department of State 2201 C Street, NW Washington, DC 20520
Dear Secretary Kerry,
I write regarding the potential resettlement of refugees to the Spartanburg, South Carolina, area. It has been reported by media outlets, and confirmed by staff within your Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), that a resettlement agency submitted a proposal to open an office in Spartanburg. In addition, it is my understanding that the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) approved the request to resettle a certain number of refugees in Spartanburg.
As the Member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing the Spartanburg area, I am deeply concerned about the lack of notice, information, and consultation afforded to me and my constituents about this issue. As such, please provide the information requested and answers to questions below:
1. Please provide a copy of the proposal submitted by the resettlement agency and any subsequent correspondence between your Department and the resettlement agency.
2. When was the resettlement agency’s proposal submitted? When was it approved by USRAP?
3. How were the claims made in the proposal as to Spartanburg’s readiness to resettle refugees verified for accuracy by USRAP prior to approval?
4. What, if any, steps were taken to notify and consult with local government officials (elected or otherwise) prior to the approval of the resettlement proposal? If so, who was contacted and did they approve the proposal?
5. Which officials/employees of the South Carolina State government reviewed and approved the resettlement agency’s proposal? When was such approval given? Were these officials/employees contacted by USRAP to independently ensure approval was given?
6. What types of, and how much, funding will the resettlement agency receive from the federal government? How much of that amount must be provided to the refugees and how much can be kept by the resettlement agency?
7. When are the first refugees expected to arrive in Spartanburg?
8. What federal, state, and local benefits are the refugees entitled to receive a) upon designation as a refugee and b) upon resettlement in the Spartanburg area?
9. How many refugees will be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
10. How are the refugees chosen to resettle in Spartanburg?
11. What is the country of origin of each of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
12. Who is responsible for ensuring housing, employment, and education services for the resettled refugees?
13. Who is responsible for ensuring resettled refugees maintain employment, as opposed to tracking employment for the first few months after being resettled?
14. How many of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area are of the age to attend K–12 schools? Of those, how many need the local government to provide interpreters or teachers who speak the native language of the refugee for the students?
15. Do any of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area have criminal convictions? If so, for what crimes has each been convicted?
16. Please explain the background check process performed on refugees scheduled to be resettled in Spartanburg.
17. Will this be the only time refugees will be resettled to the Spartanburg area pursuant to the agency’s proposal? Or can additional refugees be resettled pursuant to the proposal?
I request that any plans to resettle refugees in the Spartanburg, South Carolina, area be placed on hold until my constituents and I receive your substantive responses to the questions and information requested in this letter.
Additionally, before moving forward, both the Spartanburg community and I should have time to substantively review the information and be comfortable with the information provided.
As previously stated, I am troubled by the lack of notice and coordination with my office and the Spartanburg community, particularly local officials, regarding the plans to resettle refugees in the area. In that vein, I request at least one month’s notice prior to the arrival of the first refugee in the Spartanburg area. Please contact my Chief of Staff, Cindy Crick, with such notice (864-241-0175 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you in advance for your prompt response and attention to this matter.

This Op Ed will explain why Obama is allowing Iran’s Shiite regime to develop nuclear weapons, and what has prompted Obama to undercut and destabilize the security interests of the United States’ traditional Sunni allies in the Middle East, that 12 US Presidents, from President Franklin D. Roosevelt to President George W Bush supported for the last 65 years. Obama has been extending negotiation deadlines, after deadlines, after deadlines, after deadline, so nuclear weapons talks, that have been underway for more than 2 years, won’t be terminated (every time Iran misses a deadline, Obama just advances the deadline by another 3 months). By ensuring Iran that there will be no inspections of Iran’s military’s weapons development, Obama has all but ensured that Iran will develop nuclear warheads, if they haven’t already accomplished that feat with the help of North Korea.
In order to truly understand Obama’s approach to Iran’s nuclear weapons development program, you shouldn’t give credibility to what Obama says in these negotiations, you must understand how the negotiations came about, and you should ignore Obama’s publically stated goals because they keep changing to keep Iran engaged. These negotiations came about in December 2011, when then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized her close aide, Jack Sullivan, to begin quiet back channel negotiations between the US and Iran in Oman and she continued setting up the nuclear weapons negotiation until she left in January 2013. When Clinton was developing the basis and goals for nuclear weapons negotiation with Obama, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said if Iran is permitted to obtain nuclear weapons, it will have a very negative effect on the Middle East and the world.
The American voters have learned that they can no longer trust what Obama says, they are recalling all the untruthful promises and lies that have been emanating from the Obama administration for the last 6 years. Those untruthful promises and lies have been promoted by the left of center liberal media establishment, while they tried to cover up and disguise Obama’s true intent on many sensitive issues, subsequently many of those repeated lies were proven false. Americans must look at what Obama has “actually done”, not what he says while he has been trying to “CHANGE” the Republic from a Free Enterprise System to a Marxist/Socialist System. Learned historians have repeatedly informed the world in their publications, that for over 120 years, Marxism/Socialism has never worked anywhere it has ever been tried.
Some of the “CHANGES” that Obama has put in place over the last 6 years have been: the steady hollowing out of the US Armed Forces, installing the politically correct “Social Experiment On Diversity” that has degraded the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military, continuing the rampant out of control spending driving the national debt beyond $22 trillion before it can be reversed, the removal of Cuba from the list world terrorist threats while they are still continuing to destabilize the world with their terrorist activities by supplying arms to North Korea, FARC terrorists, Bath Separatists, & drug cartels, his steady dismantling of the US Immigration System which is allowing Radical Islamic Terrorists to enter the US under the radar scope, unilaterally disarming the United States’ nuclear weapons arsenal that had contributed to the prevention a nuclear conflicts for 75 years, and so much more that can’t possibly be included in this Op Ed.
With regard to Iran:
• The Obama Administration has essentially ceded Yemen to the Houthi Radical Islamic Terrorists, Iran’s Shiite proxy allies, nearly risking another destructive Benghazi in its haste to evacuate American personnel from the US Embassy, while forcing US Marines, for the first time in its 239 year honorable history, to render their personal weapons incapable of firing, before they were permitted to board aircraft to leave Yemen.
• The Obama administration is employing the US Air Force to provide air support for Shiite Militia and the Iranian Quid’s Force, in order to bail out Iran from a humiliating defeat in Tikrit by ISIL, even though the Iranian-backed Shiite Militia are perpetrating the same type of ethnic cleansing of Assyrian Christians that ISIL has been doing its genocide.
• The Obama administration is turning a blind eye to Iran’s massive buildup of troops near Israel’s Golan Heights border, and Iran’s arming Hezbollah with guided warheads.
• For the first time in 36 years, the Obama administration expunged any mention of Iran (the world’s primary state sponsor of terrorism) and Hezbollah (Iran’s assassination agent) from being designated as sponsors of worldwide terrorism, from the US State Department’s annual assessment of world-wide terrorist threats. Then in order to get Iran to come to the nuclear weapons negotiations table, Obama prematurely lifted economic sanctions imposed on Iran because of its suppression of student demonstration November 2011 and because of its cheating on nuclear weapons development. The funds created by the release of sanctions on Iran is funding Iran’s worldwide terrorist activities, and is funding the development of nuclear warheads.
In addition Obama, bribed Iran by giving them $11.9 billion in cash payments thru the end of all nuclear weapons negotiations. The Obama administration has been releasing progress payments of $490 million thru the period of the negotiations, those payments over the last 3 years have been funding Iran’s & Hezbollah’s terrorism, military aggression in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen, and their nuclear warhead development; it could never have happened without the financial support from Obama to make it happen---yet instead of using the power of the purse to cut off the funding of Iran’s aggression, terrorism, and nuclear weapons development, the inept Republican leadership of the House funded Iran.
• The Obama administration has gone out of its way, in order not to offend Iran, and is pandering to all of Iran’s sensibilities, despite the chants of “Death to America.” by the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in the midst of the nuclear weapons negotiations. Only 2 hours after current negotiations in Lausanne recessed, the White House published terms of the agreement with Iran. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared that nothing was agreed to in Lausanne and accused the White House of “lying, being deceptive, and having devilish intentions”, and further stated the White House claims were ”incorrect and contrary to the substance of the negotiations.” Iran’s disagreement with the US is on the timing of the lifting of sanctions, and Iran has firmly stated that it will not allow the UN’s inspection of its military weapons development (that is required to prevent Iran from cheating); the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials have repeatedly stated that Iran has been involved in cheating for the last 10 years
• At the same time Obama is cozying up to Iran, he has initiated a cold war with Israel, by leaking details of Israel’s nuclear program, and by threatening to leave Israel hanging in future UN votes; at the same time, in the midst of nuclear weapons negotiations, Obama has ignored Iran’s declaration that the destruction of Israel is ”non-negotiable.” Chief Iranian negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters the agreement would allow Iran to keep operating its nuclear program with no inspection. Zarif stated, .“We will continue enriching; we will continue research and development, and will not close any facilities.” We have learned that Iran is being allowed to retain their heavily fortified Fordow underground enrichment facility, will be permitted to continue the development of their ICBMs (which will eventually be aimed at Israel, the US’ traditional Sunni allies in the Middle East, and the US), and is being allowed to continue its aggression and terrorism in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and Bahrain, to take control of those countries (that would never have been possible without Obama’s tacit support, his lifting of sanctions to fund their aggression, and his payments of $11.9 billion in bribes to get Iran to negotiate).
• Obama openly opposed the new Egyptian government that came to power to stop the genocide of Christians in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood Government and cut off all military aide to Egypt. The new Egyptian pro-US government is led by a pro-American leader, President Abdul Fattah el-Sisi, who is fighting ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and other terrorist groups. Besides attacking Radical Islamic Terrorist, Egypt is supporting of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and other friendly US Sunni allies in the Middle East.
Taken as a whole, the above pro-Iranian actions by Obama goes well beyond credulous appeasement. Obama has been outraging NATO allied governments and friendly Sunni Arab countries because of his backward treatment of Iran and Israel. There is clearly a more sinister motivation in Obama’s actions. Just as the Clinton Administration failed to put an inspection regime in place to prevent North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il alleged peaceful development of nuclear power, from developing nuclear warheads, Obama is also failing to put an inspection regime in place to prevent Iran’s alleged peaceful development of nuclear power from stealthily developing nuclear warheads. America has seen this Clinton movie before, but Obama thinks the American people are stupid.
After the 2008 inauguration, Obama said “as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a moral responsibility to act,” and he spoke about a “world without nuclear weapons.” What Obama meant to say was a world without American nuclear weapons. Thus after his inauguration, Obama began the unilaterally disarmament of the US Military’s nuclear weapons arsenal, while at the same time he decreased the US military budget by $50 billion. During the last 6 years, Obama has often stated how much more peaceful the world would be with less nuclear weapons, while he has been unilaterally destroying a large portions of the US’s nuclear weapons arsenal. Obama has never entered into international negotiations for the mutual reduction of nuclear weapons arsenals with Russia and China to match the United States’ unilateral nuclear weapons disarmament.
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientist, Ploughshares Campaign Against WMD, and other anti-nuclear activists have never been opposed to Obama’s nuclear sellout to Iran, and Iran’s development of nuclear warheads—they are cheering Obama facilitating of Iran to become a nuclear weapons power. The anti-nuclear activists, leftists students & professors, progressives, Marxist, and Communists have been supporting Obama’s plan to provide Iran with nuclear weapons. They had previously demonstrated in the streets against America’s nuclear weapons, and demanding the US unilateral disarm their nuclear weapons; they weren’t ever against nuclear weapons---they were only against the US’ nuclear weapons and its Super Power status in the world. Those radical leftists, Marxists, and communists are right in step with Obama, and his stubborn headlong decision to make it possible for Iran to develop nuclear warheads
What Obama is really doing, as he is unilaterally reducing the United States nuclear weapons arsenal, and hollowing out the US Armed Forces, is signaling to the world’s leftist and communists that he agrees that the United States’ nuclear weapons are dangerous, and that Russia, China, and Iran’s nuclear weapons are not dangerous nuclear weapons, because those nuclear weapons will keep the United States in check, and Iran’s nuclear weapons will keep Israel nuclear weapons in check in the Middle East.
Obama has indicated over the last 6 years that the United States should not be the only Super Power in the world, and anything that fundamentally contributes toward that end, fits in with Obama’s goal of insuring that the US should not be the only Super Power in the world, and supports his plan reduce the US’ capacity to influence world events.
Obama’s hollowing out of the US Armed Forces is reducing the US Army’s manning level below the Army’s strength prior to WWII, and is reducing the size of US Navy to the size of the Navy prior to WWI and those actions over the last 6 years have fundamentally contributed to the weakening the US, is ensuring that the US will not be the only Super Power in the world, and Obama’s foreign policy of disengaging & leading from behind has reduced the US’ capacity to influence world events.
By disengaging, Obama signaled Iran that the US will not interfere with its aggression as they took control of Libya, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen. Obama’s inaction in the Middle East over the last 6 years has destabilized and undermined the security interest of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein, Egypt, Jordan, Afghanistan, and the United Arab Republic. The US has effectively weakened the strength of its traditional US Sunni allies in the Middle East, thereby fundamentally contributing toward weakening the US, further contributing to ensure that the US will not be the only Super Power in the world, and reducing the US’ capacity to influence events in the Middle East and in the world.
Because Obama led from behind these last 6 years, Iran was able to take control and consolidated crude oil reserves in Libya, and Iraq, to add to Iran’s reserves, while developing closer relations with Russia with its large crude oil reserves further strengthens its access to crude oil. Iran’s is trying to eliminate Saudi Arabia crude oil production dominance, primarily because Saudi Arabia has always supported the United States’ foreign policy objectives by coordinating its crude oil production policy with the US national goals. Iran’s intent is to try to make Saudi Arabia’s pro-US stance in support of its foreign policy in the Middle East much less relevant. Alireza Zakani, a loyalist of the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said “The Yemeni revolution will not be confined to Yemen alone. It will extend following it success into Saudi territories. The Yemeni-Saudi vast border will help expedite its reach into the depth of Saudi land.”
By allowing and supporting Iran’s development of nuclear weapons and Intercontinental ballistic missiles, Obama is further fundamentally contributing toward weakening the US, is contributing toward the US not being the only Super Power in the World, and is supporting reducing the US’ capacity to influence word events.
What truly motivates Obama to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, is Obama’s intent to fundamentally weaken the United States, prevent it from being the only Super Power in the world, and his intent to reduce the US’ capacity to influence world events. Putting all the above preceding facts together, Obama’s historical immoral realignment of America’s foreign policy in the Middle East in favor of Iran, has provided Iran with the control of massive crude oil reserves in Iraq, Libya, and Iran, has contributed toward helping Iran minimizing Saudi Arabia crude oil production dominance in the Middle East, allowed Iran to develop ICBMs, for over 2 years has been extending sham nuclear weapons negotiations with Iran which has been allowing them to develop nuclear warheads, even before negotiations are concluded. Obama’s Middle East Nuclear Weapons Policy will further destabilize the Middle East that is already on fire, and will result in a nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East, and may result in the breakout of the first nuclear conflict in the history of mankind.
“During the past 3 years, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), reporting on Iran’s nuclear weapons development, the IAEA indicated, at a minimum, they strongly suspect that Iran has already built nuclear warheads. It’s certainly known that Iran has long range ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles).” Please click on the below listed link to understand why the IAEA believes Iran has been able to develop nuclear warheads over 3 years during which nuclear weapons negotiations initiated by Clinton, continued by Kerry, and controlled by Obama have continued. It appears that Obama has always intended to permit Iran to develop nuclear weapons. Their nuclear weapons will pose a great threat to the US’ Sunni allies in the Middle East, the NATO countries, Israel, and the United States.

Just as the Co-Pilot, Andreas Lubitz, in his single-minded madness “Locked Out” the Pilot of Germanwings FLT 9525 from the cockpit, preventing him from altering the course to avoid a major air disaster; the aircraft increased speed to 434 miles per hour as it approached the ground, while the 150 passengers, gripped with fear in the pits of their stomachs, were forced to helplessly ride the aircraft’s 8 minute decent into its explosive destruction.
Obama “Locked Out” the US Congress and American people in his single-minded madness preventing them from altering his Marxists policies, that are leading the Republic to its destruction. Patriotic America Citizens have been gripped in fear in the pits of their stomachs as they are being forced to helplessly watch Obama’s 8 year plan to employ illegal Executive Orders, disobey Federal Laws, and violate the US Constitution, in order to destroy the Free Enterprise System that created the most successful economic engine in the history of mankind. For 6 years, Obama has been aggressively trying to “CHANGE” the Republic into a Socialist/Marxist State, when Marxist/Socialism has failed everywhere it has ever been tried in the last 120 years.
American citizens have witnessed Obama change in policies, as he:
“Locked out” the American people while he destroyed the most successful National Health Care system in US history that worked for 350 million Americans and forcibly replaced it with the failed Socialist Obama Healthcare Program that only 7 million Americans have subscribed to.
“Locked out” the US Congress and Conservative Americans while he his appointees at the IRS prevented conservative political groups from organizing to exercise their right to vote, a right guaranteed to them by the Bill of Rights, while at the same time Obama appointees at the IRS gave Muslim Groups Tax-exempt status.
“Locked out” the US Armed Forces and prevented them from saving the lives of 4 Americans who were murdered in the Battle of Benghazi by Radical Islamic Terrorists, because Obama refused to issue “Cross Border Authority” that prevented the deployment of armed and ready Air Force aircraft that were less than 2 hours away.
“Locked out” the US Congress, ICE, and the US Immigration Service, while Obama continues to unilaterally violate Federal Immigration Laws and Regulation to issue millions of Work Permits and Social Security Numbers to Illegal Aliens while allowing “only” Muslims refugees to enter the US thru the UN Refugee Program and giving them a fast track to US Citizenship without investigate their backgrounds to determine whether they have ties to Al Q’ieda and ISIL.
“Locked out” the Congress and the demands of millions of Americas to close the wide open southern border, as it has been successfully closed in the San Diego Sector, in order to prevent Al Q’ieda, ISIL, and other Radical Islamic Terrorists from walking into the US.
“Locked out” US Intelligence Agencies and the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s recommendations to implement contingency plans to prevent the ongoing genocide of thousands of Syrian & Assyrian Christians, and to prevent ISIL’s conquest of millions of acres of territory on the Plains of Ninveh, in Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Northern Africa, etc. for over a 2 year period.
“Locked out” the recommendations and warnings of Central Command, the US Iraqi Embassy, and the National Security establishment, not to prematurely pull out all US Military Forces from Iraq, which then permitted a defeated Al Q’ieda and ISIL to regroup and to reconstitute their military organization to threaten the Middle East and the world with their brand of Radical Islamic Terrorism.
“Locked out” the US Congress which was required by law to approve any exchange of 5 of the most dangerous Radical Islamic Taliban Terrorist Generals incarcerated in Gitmo, for a US Army deserter. The “FLAGRANT LIE” given by the Obama administration for the exchange was “We leave no man behind”,
(1) we witnessed Obama leave 4 Americans behind, including 2 Navy SEALs, to be murdered in Benghazi by Radical Islamic Terrorists, while there were armed aircraft less than 2 hours away that could have saved their lives, but the US Armed Forces was prevented from rescuing of the 4 Americans, because Obama refused to execute “Cross Border Authority” which would have been required to authorize a military rescue mission
(2) we witnessed Obama leave Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi, USMC behind (an Iraqi War Combat Marine Veteran suffering from PTSD) to be tortured in a Mexican prison for over 7 months; his only crime was to mistakenly cross the wide open southern border because of bad signage on the US side of the border,
(3) since January 2012, for over 1600 days, the American people have been witnessing Obama leave Sgt Amir Hekmati, USMC behind (an Iraqi War Combat Marine Veteran) to be tortured in an Iranian prison; his only crime was to seek and obtain permission form the Iranian Government, in advance, to visit his dying grandmother.
“Locked out” the US Congress, and provisions of the US Constitution that requires Congress approve the International Treaty that Obama is entering into with Iran, while the American citizens and United States Sunni allies in the Middle East are gripped by fear in the pits of their stomachs as they are being forced to helplessly watch the world’s most dangerous sponsor of state terrorism being provided with the ability to develop nuclear weapons, on a silver platter by Obama, with which they will be able to attack friendly US Sunni allies in the Middle East, Israel, NATO, and the United States.

We wish all participants and observers of this Holy Season a Happy Good Friday, a Happy Easter, and a Happy Passover. Today's treatment of Christians in a great many nations is disturbingly and reminiscent of the brutal persecution and genocide of the early followers of Jesus Christ; it is a current day “Crime Against Humanity.” Christian Americans are frustrated by the indifference displayed by the US Government’s in its refusal to join in with world leaders to condemn the persecution, torture, and genocide of helpless Syrian and Assyrian Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists members of ISIL and Al Q’ieda as the genocide intensifies from week to week. We are now also observing the religious persecution of conscientious and believing Christians in the United States, led by the left of center liberal media establishment, because of their refusal to participate in or provide support for religious ceremonies that their well held religious beliefs don’t agree with.
The Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Royal Family in England, the UK Prime Minister, the King of Jordan, the President of Egypt, the President of Kurdistan, the Prime Minister of Japan, the Prime Minister of Australian, President George W. Bush, Reverend Billy Graham, the Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Prime Ministers of NATO nations, the Prime Minister of Israel, Christian Religious Leaders of every denomination from throughout the world, the current crop of candidates seeking to run for President of the United States, Christians worldwide, and the Secretary General of the United Nations have all raised their voices in unison to demand that the bloody genocide of Christians in Africa, Syria, and on the Plains of Nineveh in Iraq stop. Unfortunately for 3 years, the occupant of the Oval Office has not joined in with other world leaders in their condemnation of the genocide of Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists members of ISIL & Al Q’ieda in this current Jihad against Christians---that silence from the Oval Office for the last 3 years has been deafening!!
Inside ISIS' Shocking Persecution of Assyrian Christians on the Plains of Ninveh in Iraq
Assyrian Christianity started in the Plains of Nineveh with first-century Apostles in churches the Disciples founded, and Assyrian Christians still speak Aramaic, the language that Christ spoke. For over 2000 years, they endured and survived the Roman persecution of Christians, sieges by Saladin, conquests by the Persians, persecution by the Ottoman Empire, oppression by the Mongols, the survived Turkish genocide at the turn of the century, WWI, WWII, Iraq’s long war with Iran, the US led coalition Iraqi War with Saddam Hussein.,
But in just 10 months of control, ISIL & Al Q’ieda, the members of Radical Islamic Jihadists perpetrating worldwide Jihad, have forced hundreds of thousands of Assyrian Christians into exile. At one time, 4 million Assyrian Christians made the Plains of Ninveh, in what was once Mesopotamia (Iraq today), their traditional home for over 2000 years. By clicking on the below listed link you can view the 60 Minutes segment that will take you inside Iraq today and will describe the life and death struggle that the Assyrian Christians, trying to survive, are involved in with Radical Islamic Jihadists. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/iraq-christians-persecuted-by-isis-60-minutes/
Assyrian Christians are being crucified, beheaded, being forced to kneel to be shot, thrown off buildings to their deaths, being buried alive, being burned alive, whose children are being cut in half, and whose female children & women are being raped then killed for refusing to deny that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior. For the last 3 years the Obama administration has refused to provide logistic support and small arms to the Assyrian Christians; in the last 10 months the Assyrian Christian Militia has been training, employing the paucity of funds donated to their cause by American citizens. The newly constituted Assyrian Christian Militia has been trying to protect the Assyrian Christians who have migrate toward the Kurdish lines on the eastern end of the Plains of Ninveh Although 51 US Congressmen have petitioned the Obama administration to simply provide logistics and defensive small arms for the Assyrian Christian Militia engaged with ISIL, their requests have been ignored, yet US military air support and logistic aide is being provided to Iraq and their ally, the Iranian Quid’s Force, with boots on the ground in Iraq who are also engaged with ISIL.

ISIS Onslaught Engulfs Assyrian Christians as Militants Destroy Ancient Art
By ANNE BARNARD
ISTANBUL — The reports are horrifying, something out of a distant era of ancient conquests: entire villages emptied, with hundreds taken prisoner, others kept as slaves; the destruction of irreplaceable works of art; a tax on religious minorities, payable in gold.
A rampage reminiscent of Tamerlane or Genghis Khan, perhaps, but in reality, according to reports by residents, activist groups and the assailants themselves, a description of the modus operandi of the Islamic State’s self-declared Islamic caliphate this week as it prosecuted a relentless campaign in Iraq and Syria against what have historically been religiously and ethnically diverse areas with traces of civilizations dating to ancient Mesopotamia.
The latest to face the militants’ onslaught are the Assyrian Christians of northeastern Syria, one of the world’s oldest Christian communities, some speaking a modern version of Aramaic, the language of Jesus.
Assyrian leaders have stated hundreds Assyrian Christians men, women, and children have been taken captive, along with civilian men and fighters from Assyrian Christian Militias, said Dawoud Dawoud, an Assyrian political activist who had just toured the area, in the vicinity of the Syrian city of Qamishli. Thirty villages had been emptied, he said.

An elected Combat Veterans For Congress, Congressman James Bridenstine, Lcdr-USNR (R-OK-1), is one of the principled members of Congress who votes his conscience against very bad legislation, in support of the US Constitution, and regardless of the consequence.
Regardless of the possibility of retribution, Cong Bridenstine voted his conscience against the Omnibus Funding Bill that provided funding for the budget thru September 2015 for the Obama administration illegal Executive Order that will effectively give Work Permits and Social Security Numbers to 5 million Illegal Aliens. Cong Bridenstine also voted against re-electing the Speaker of the House of Representatives because the Speaker sought Pelosi’s help in getting her Democrat members to help the Speaker pass the Omnibus Spending Bill against the votes and will of the majority of Republican Congressmen. Following his votes of conscious, Congressman Bridenstine was removed from the House Rules Committee by the Republican leadership. That action was uncalled for and we oppose that type of vindictive retribution against a Patriotic Congressman who votes to protect and defend the US Constitution.
Please read the below listed article about Congressman Bridenstine, then click on the link to listen to his interview with Joe Miller on the Joe Miller Show. In the interview, Cong Bridenstine refuses to back down from his principled stands and his votes to protect and support the US Constitution, regardless of future consequences. We and all Americans are fortunate to have a Representative in the House with integrity like Congressman Bridenstine representing the voters. We wish more Congressmen were as principled as Congressman Bridenstine; we will continue to support him in any way we can, and encourage all American citizens to financially support Cong Bridenstine’s re-election campaign in 2016.
Congressman Bridenstine: Tea Party Hero Refuses to Back Down from GOP Leadership
In an exclusive interview with Joe Miller Show, Congressman Bridenstine talked about his stand against the GOP Leadership and the critical need to fight Obama’s unconstitutional power grab. Listen to this patriot discuss his modern day fight against the Tories of our time:
Congressman Jim Bridenstine was endorsed by the Combat Veterans for Congress and was elected in 2012 to represent Oklahoma’s First District, which covers Washington, Tulsa, Wagoner Counties plus portions of Rogers & Creek Counties. Bridenstine serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the Science, Space and Technology Committee.
From the start, Cong Bridenstine has been widely recognized in the House for his integrity, commitment to principles, and willingness to uphold the rule of law. He has become an effective member of Congress by focusing on three specific areas: National Security, Economic Freedom, and Constitutional Integrity. Jim supports moving toward a balanced budget through spending control, tax reform, and financial measures and policies promoting free markets.
Bridenstine has focused on the elimination of Obamacare and reform of laws and regulations that present a huge burden on the economy. He has introduced legislation and supported a strong national defense, religious freedom, protection of life, free speech and restoration of the balance of power within the branches of the federal government consistent with the Constitution.
On April 1st, Bridenstine achieved a remarkable accomplishment and became the first freshman on the Science, Space and Technology Committee to author and pass legislation this session. The Weather Forecasting Improvement Act (HR2413) will enable technology development to save lives and protect property from severe weather, including tornadoes, without adding to the budget or debt. The measure received tremendous bipartisan support and passed on a voice vote.
Bridenstine’s background includes a triple major at Rice University, an MBA from Cornell University, 9 years of active duty in the United States Navy, and he is an Eagle Scout. Cong Bridenstine began his Naval aviation career flying the E-2C Hawkeye off the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln. It was there that he flew combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and gathered most of his 1,900 flight hours and 333 carrier arrested landings. While on active duty, he transitioned to the F-18 Hornet and flew at the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, the parent command to TOPGUN. He is currently a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve where he flew the E-2C Hawkeye in America’s war on drugs before becoming a member of Congress. He and his wife Michelle live in Tulsa with their three children, ages 7, 5, and 2.
