Frank Gaffney: Is North Korea Planning to Launch EMP Attack? (Video)

Frank Gaffney of The Center for Security Policy appeared on CNBC’s Kudlow Report, last night, to discuss North Korea.

Amid heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula, the North Korean government told foreign governments to leave South Korean territory for their safety. Today, Kim Jong Un’s government may launch missiles in a provocative test. Gaffney points out that Obama’s actions and rhetoric toward American nuclear disarmament is dangerous, and has contributed to North Korea’s aggressiveness. In addition, what’s the possibility of North Korea’s use of Electromagnetic Pulse attack?

Gaffney noted that one of the things he was most concerned about was the missile the Norks launched back in December that put a small satellite up into space and has a track that’s going to put it over the United States over the next week. This satellite, Gaffney worried, could be an EMP weapon, acquired from Russia, that they could decide to detonate over the United States’ electrical grid.

Video: The Union Goon Who Attacked Crowder Had Spewed Profanities at Him Earlier in the Day

Via FTR Radio, another exclusive video of the menacing mob behavior that eventually brought down the AFP tent.
Most of us have seen the attack on Steven Crowder by the union thug. This video shows the guy approaching Crowder about an hour before the punch while he was debating pro-union protesters in front of the tent. According to eye witness, Thomas La Duke of FTR Radio, this video provides strong evidence that the guy was looking for a fight…

La Duke: “Note to MSM or anyone else. This is UNEDITED video so try to keep that spin to a minimum.”

Get Ready For Hyper-Inflation: China Ready To Dump US Dollars

Zero Hedge: “if you’re not preparing for mega-inflation already, you need to start doing so NOW. The Fed WILL continue to pump money into the system 24/7 and it’s going to result in the death of the US Dollar.”

In case you missed it, earlier this week China announced that its foreign currency reserves are excessive and that they need to return to “reasonable” levels.

In politician speak, this is a clear, “we are sick of the US Dollar and will be taking steps to lower our holdings.” Remember, the US Dollar is China’s largest single holding. And China has already begun dumping Treasuries (US Debt).

This comes on the heels of China deciding (along with Russia) to trade in their own currencies, NOT the US Dollar. Not to mention the numerous warnings Chinese politicians have been issuing to the US over the last 24 months.

In simple terms, China is done playing nice and is now actively moving out of US Dollar denominated assets. This is the beginning of the US Dollar’s end as world reserve currency.

Remember, the Republicans are the radical ones for trying to put us on a sound, fiscal path. Sensible pols don’t want to endanger our booming recovery by reining in spending. The answer to all of our fiscal problems is “tax the rich”.

David Limbaugh: To Retire Our National Debt, We Must Retire Obama

Obama’s ever-changing proposals, allegedly designed to tackle the problem, simply could not work. One of the following must be true: He doesn’t agree that the crisis is grave, doesn’t understand that his policies can’t work, doesn’t have the same vision about America as most of us, or doesn’t intend for his policies to work. Some people believe he’s intentionally damaging America, because they believe he’s too smart not to know that we face a crisis and that his policies can’t work.

I don’t pretend to comprehend the inner child of his past that apparently impels him to pursue this current path of destruction. My educated guess is that his leftist ideology blinds him to the inefficacy of failed liberal prescriptions but also that this same ideology tells him that if things don’t get appreciably better, then that’s OK, too, because America’s had more than its fair share of prosperity anyway.

Man Encouraging Economic Terrorism Visited Obama White House Four Times In Past Two Years According To White House Logs

Yesterday, a video taken at a closed session at a Pace University forum over the weekend, exposing the nefarious plans of former a SEIU official to destroy the US capitalism, made the rounds in the right wing blogosphere. Stephen Lerner can be heard saying:

“It seems to me that we’re in a moment where we need to figure out in a much more, through direct action, much more concrete way how we really are trying to disrupt and create uncertainty for capital, for how corporations operate,” Lerner said during the progressive conference last weekend in New York.

Some dismissed the story because Lerner had been fired by the SEIU for wasting money pushing this very project.  Anyone who is too radical for the SEIU, is a crackpot with very little influence one would think.

But as the Blaze reports, today, a look at White House visiter logs shows that a Stephen Lerner has visited the White House four times in the past two years.

Two of these visits were for public gatherings: a large group’s private White House tour and a White House Hanukkah celebration. But at least two other visits were scheduled for private meetings with high-level executive offices.

On May 22, 2010, Lerner met with a presidential personnel officer who manages economic agencies. While the minimal information in the WH visitor log offers no real information on what this meeting was about, it’s distressing to know a) anyone in the White House would meet with the kind of man who could openly call for the deliberate dismantling of the American economy, and that b) that White House official works to recruit personnel for the federal government’s economic agencies.

Perhaps more telling, the Stephen Lerner listed in the White House logs had an October 16, 2010 appointment scheduled by Tara Corrigan, executive assistant to then-WH political director Patrick Gaspard. Like Lerner, Gaspard spent much of his career working as a lobbyist and executive vice president for SEIU‘s Local 1199 in New York one of the union’s most powerful and notoriously militant chapters. You may recall that Gaspard announced his departure from the White House earlier this year in order to focus on the upcoming 2012 campaign. He now serves as executive director of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) under chairman Tim Kaine.

We have asked the White House to confirm that the reported “Stephen Lerner” is indeed the veteran SEIU organizer, however we still have received no response.

Read The Blaze’s full report.

The White House will no doubt say that this Stephen Lerner is yet another “false positive” like they have with other radicals who’s names have appeared on the  White House guest rolls. Andrew Breitbart noted the dilemma, in this Huffpo oped, yesterday:

The visitor logs that have been released are problematic, because they are simply lists of names, with no way to verify whether a specific name belongs to a particular person.

When the first names were released on Oct. 30, 2009, late on a Friday afternoon, then-White House “ethics czar” Norm Eisen noted the lists included “false positives” — “names that make you think of a well-known person, but are actually someone else.” According to Eisen, these included ordinary visitors named “Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly (“R. Kelly”), and Malik Shabazz.”

A number of conservative bloggers noticed the names, but not Eisen’s blog post. With speed and precision suggesting direct coordination from the top, ThinkProgress, the core of the heavily funded John Podesta/George Soros “progressive” world, gleefully attacked its ideological foes for reporting “false positives.” The next release included “Louis Farrakhan” and “James Taylor,” but this time conservatives were more careful.

Yet there is no way to prove that the “false positives” really are false, because the White House refuses to reveal identifying information about visitors. In December 2009, citing visitor logs, Big Government reported that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis had likely visited the White House on a special “staff tour” on September 5. The timing of Lewis’s visit — as the far-left regrouped in the aftermath of the health care town halls — seemed suspicious.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the the MSM to show an ounce of curiosity about it.

UPDATE:

Weasel Zippers: GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz Demands Holder Investigate SEIU Official’s “Terrorist Plans” to Bring Down Banks…


Whoa! WI Senate Orders Arrest Of Fleebaggers

They’re really playing hardball, now:

Senate Republicans Thursday ordered the arrest of their 14 Democratic colleagues, who fled the state two weeks ago to avoid a vote on Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial budget repair bill.

It’s unclear whether the resolution to force the senators back to the Capitol is constitutional. The state Constitution prohibits the arrest of legislators while in session unless they’re suspected of committing felonies, treason or breach of the peace.

Democrats say the Republicans have overreached, and have consulted an attorney for an opinion on whether the GOP actions are legal.

Of course,  they wouldn’t be doing it if it were illegal – they’ve dotted their Is and crossed their Ts:

James Troupis, a private attorney hired by Fitzgerald, contended Thursday that the move is legal. He cited a portion of the state Constitution that provides that each house “may compel the attendance of absent members.”

Republicans voted unanimously to give the Democrats until 4 p.m. Thursday to appear before the Senate. The 14 Democrats are believed to be in Illinois. If the senators do not return by the deadline, the Senate agreed to find them “in contempt and disorderly behavior.”

Declared Fitzgerald: “They have pushed us to the edge of a constitutional crisis.”

***

That means the Senate sergeant at arms can “with or without force” and with or without the help of law enforcement take missing members into custody and bring them to the Capitol.

Be Careful Allen West….

There’s much to love about Allen West. He’s had a distinguished military career, and as an Afghan war vet, he’s one of the nation’s foremost authorities on the nature of the enemy we face. He gained national exposure  on YouTube through his excellent speaking skills. West doesn’t mince words, or cushion his opinions.  His style of rhetoric is blunt, and incisive. All good things…

But…

If he isn’t careful, he could talk himself into being a sort of right-wing Alan Grayson – an obnoxious, bomb-throwing, sucker punching slob, and a national embarrassment.

I was shocked to hear some of the comments Lawrence O’Donnell brought to light on his MSNBC show:

“Obama is probably the dumbest person walking around America, right now”.

“I can’t stand the guy, I absolutely can’t stand him”.

Those statements are beneath the dignity of a United States Congressman. While I don’t blame Rep. West for feeling the way he does, (I feel the same way) – I do blame him for using such strident, and tactless speech. We expect better decorum from our Republican Congressmen. As much as we may not like it, Obama is the President of the United States. Public officials are expected to show a certain amount of respect for the office.

The comments West made about Obama’s trip to Afghanistan are from an interview he gave The New York Times Magazine:

Do you consider President Obama a good leader?
Not really.

Do you think those in the military respect him?
I don’t know, you gotta ask guys in the military, but I will tell you this: I think that going in in the middle of the night doesn’t show leadership.

Are you referring to that recent three-hour trip to a base in Afghanistan? He needs to consider his own safety, doesn’t he?
Leaders lead by example, and if I’m asking my young men and women to go out there and puttheir lives on the line, I should be willing and able to do the exact same thing. As I told my soldiers when I was commander in Iraqin 2003, the most expendable person in our battalion was me.

Didn’t George W. Bush go in for a surprise visit to Iraq under similar circumstances? Remember the platter-of-turkey photo op on Thanksgiving Day?
I’m not saying that’s right, either. I’m saying that my understanding of leadership is a little bit different. Leadership is about being a servant first.

Suggesting that a President should put his life on the line the same as a soldier is ludicrous, and the fact that he dug in, and didn’t back away from the idea until the very end of the interview with O’Donnell, may well have disqualified him from ever running for higher office, I’m very sorry to say.

Am I wrong?
