Guiliani Drops a “Truthbomb” on Obama

Ace of Spades has lately been referring to Obama as “President Bullworth Truthbomb” in reference to Obama’s reported fantasy of “going Bulworth,” that is, behaving like the protagonist of Warren Beatty’s 1998 film, Bulworth.

Bulworth is a Senator who finally breaks free of the constraints of American politics to say what he really thinks. And what he thinks consists largely of obscene raps and wild speeches openly pushing for socialism.

Obama and his acolytes have been dropping these Bullworthian “truthbombs” on the electorate with a vengeance since the midterm elections – in the wake of which Obama said he was finally “liberated” to do and say whatever he pleases.

Well, Republicans can drop “truthbombs”, too.

At a private dinner at the 21 Club in NYC,  former Mayor Giuliani said of Obama, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

For the liberal media – (and at least one dork in the conservative media) this was a controversial thing to say. But for those of us, who are not charter members of the Barack Obama fan club – not so much. It’s what many of us have been feeling for over six years.

Really since he hit the scene in 2008, and I started really paying attention to him – it was obvious to me that we had a very different type of political animal on our hands running for president – (irrespective of his brown skin and “funny name.”) This is a man who did not have the standard all-American background past presidents have always had. He had spent his formative years in Indonesia, being raised a Muslim in a Muslim country. Obama was never a boy scout. He didn’t play little league. He didn’t go to church on Sunday. He did have a tranny nanny.

Later on in Hawaii, he was mentored by a communist writer and activist. He  spent his college days hanging around radical activists.

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy.

And there is no evidence that he ever discarded his Marxist predispositions. Indeed, all the evidence points to the fact that he hasn’t.

In Chicago, he worked as a radical community organizer using the tactics of the communist Saul Alinsky. As a stepping stone into Chicago politics, he attended a radical black church.  He was introduced to Chicago politics by a communist Bill Ayers. His friends have always been far-leftists and Islamist radicals.

Good God, it’s been a living nightmare having this man as our president.

It’s about damn time someone started mainstreaming what so many of us have been feeling for the past 7 years.

Andrew McCarthy, NRO: Find the ‘Countering Violent Extremism Summit’ at the Intersection of Islamists and Leftists:

You may understandably think of it as an ISIS jobs fair, but the ongoing confab in Washington is officially known as President Obama’s “summit” on “Countering Violent Extremism.” That being the case, many Americans seem surprised at the appearance of Salam al-Marayati, leader of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). After all, the White House is having a public hissy fit over the upcoming speech to Congress by Obama’s bête noire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An odd time, one might think, for the POTUS to be so chummy with a Muslim activist best know for theorizing, right after the 9/11 attacks, that “we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list.”

But National Review readers will not be surprised. Marayati and MPAC figured in my 2010 book on the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. operations – The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (“grand jihad” and “sabotage” are lifted verbatim from an internal Brotherhood memo that describes the Islamists’ objective to infiltrate and destroy our country). And three years ago, I profiled Marayati and MPAC in this NRO column.

 

Obama’s #CVE Conference Is A Travesty

Well, that White House Summit to counter “violent extremism” is going about as badly as we expected it would. Which is to say – it’s an obscene travesty – a slow motion train wreck horrifying and fascinating to us at the same time.  I’d say it’s a complete waste of time, but it’s worse than that because the Regime refuses to correctly diagnosis the problem, so the wrong remedies are being prescribed.

And as fully expected, they are ludicrously trying to give equal time to “Christian” violent extremist groups.

Via Twitchy, Obama shows the world just how profoundly and grotesquely he has misdiagnosed the problem in an oped in today’s Los Angeles Times (timed to coincide with the CVE Summit.)

More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.

Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.

Nowhere does the lure of joining Islamic Jihad and expanding the Islamic caliphate (for it’s own sake) enter into the president’s calculation. This has nothing at all to do with Islam, the PC/Taqiyya crowd will tell you. As far as they are concerned, universal health care coverage and midnight basketball are better answers to the Jihadist threat than bombs.

ISIS/Daesh fighters on the ground, may laugh and sneer at this point of view (“Like a pig covered in feces giving hygiene advice to others,” one tweeted)- but in faculty lounges in America I’m guessing  it’s the “smart take.”

Meanwhile, as I’ve already noted in a previous post - look at the people they have invited to participate in this travesty.

Via The Washington Free Beacon, Muslim Leader Who Called Israel a ‘Suspect’ After 9/11 Meets with Biden at White House

A controversial U.S. Muslim leader who has been highly critical of Israel and said the Jewish state should be on the “suspect list” in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks participated on Tuesday in a White House summit on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) that featured Vice President Joe Biden.

Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), tweeted out a photo of himself at the White House with Biden and bragged, “We joined VP @JoeBiden for a discussion at the @WhiteHouse #CVESummit which kicked off today.”

Al-Marayati has been viewed as a controversial figure due to past statements characterized by his critics as anti-Israel and soft on terrorism.

Al Marayati’s group MPAC also tweeted out their delight that “Biden just talked about the right wing militias & supremacist groups that are violent in the name of the Bible,” during Biden’s talk, yesterday.

Prompting me to tweet:

And

And

And

Almost as if on cue, Marie Harf came out and asked why no one talks about Kony anymore – who she described as a violent Christian extremist.

And if you’ve never heard Kony described as a Christian – it’s because the nationalist/mystic/far Eastern/voodoo brand of “Christianity” Kony practices is not what most people would consider Christian – and he has no worldwide network of Christian supporters.

Kony proclaims himself the spokesperson of God and a spirit medium, and has been considered by some as a cult of personality, and claims he is visited by a multinational host of 13 spirits, including a Chinese phantom.[2] Ideologically, the group is a syncretic mix of mysticism, Acholi nationalism, and Christian fundamentalism, and claims to be establishing a theocratic state based on the Ten Commandments and local Acholi tradition.

But consider this: Although Obama has no problem identifying Kony as a Christian violent extremist – he refuses to identify ISIS/Daesh or any other Islamic terrorists waging Jihad, as Muslim extremists.

And although Obama is loath to identify the victims of Islamic terror as Christians or Jews, because as Jen Psaki says “we are not going to put new labels on victims”,  he has no compunction at all about  identifying the “three young people” who were murdered in Chapel Hill, N.C., (by a left-wing, MSNBC-watching, SPLC supporting atheist) as “Muslim Americans.”

And how the president does go on in his LA Times oped:

 But we know that many Muslim Americans across our country are worried and afraid. Americans of all faiths and backgrounds must continue to stand united with a community in mourning and insist that no one should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship.

Because Muslims in America – the land of the free –  have it just so – so incredibly hard.

The Christians of Nigeria, North Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, and that Christian Pastor rotting in an Iranian prison (none of whom this president deigns worth writing about or wasting his breath on) only wish they had it as “hard.”

Obama constantly betrays his approval of Islam with his preferential treatment of Muslims and open contempt for Christians and Jews -which at this point is difficult to see as anything but anti-Christian bigotry and antisemitism.

“Let’s not get up on our high horse,” Obama says.

This week, the White House is hosting an international conference on “countering violent extremism.” The administration promises that the conference will “work to address the underlying conditions that can help foster violent extremism such as poverty, inequality, and repression. This means supporting alternatives to extremist messaging and greater economic opportunities for women and disaffected youth.” What “extremist messaging” would that be? The Christian Science Monitor?

This is gibberish. The administration uses language to impede thought rather than to elucidate it — which suits the jihadis very well.

 Breitbart National Security: EXTREMISTS ATTENDING OBAMA’S ‘COUNTERING EXTREMISM’ SUMMIT:

As we expected and warned, the Islamic Society of Boston’s (ISB) Cambridge mosque – the radical Muslim Brotherhood front group attended by the Boston Marathon bombers – was invited to join the summit and is represented there by its executive director, Nichole Mossalam. A few days ago, in Breitbart News and the Washington Times, we reported how over the past decade, 12 of the ISB’s worshippers have either been killed, imprisoned, or declared fugitives due to their involvement in terrorist activity. In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, Ms. Mossalam told media outlets that the ISB urged members to contact law enforcement “immediately after the bombings in case they knew of anyone who might have been involved.”

In reality, the ISB sent out the first email about the bombings to its members a full seven days after the Marathon was blown up, urging them not to talk to the FBI without first contacting the ACLU and the ISB. The ISB wrote: “We have been informed that the FBI may be starting to question some of the community members about the two suspects. Insha’Allah we want to help as much as we can, but of course not put ourselves at risk either. Seeking representation does not imply any guilt on your part but is simply a way of protecting your own rights.”

Nabeel Khudairi is the other deeply problematic individual taking part in the White House CVE Summit. Khudairi is a Boston ophthalmologist and leader of two other extremist groups – the Islamic Council of New England and the Islamic Center of New England. In 2007, our organization, Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT), successfully subpoenaed a variety of documents from Nabeel Khudairi during the Islamic Society of Boston’s failed defamation suit against Boston’s Fox 25, the Boston Herald, and us. In its complaint, the ISB alleged that it had been defamed by our reporting on its extensive ties to Islamic extremism. The ISB was ultimately forced to drop the lawsuit after subpoenas like the one pursued against Khudairi not only supported our original claims, but also began exposing even more of the mosque’s extremist links.

Supporters of Violent Extremism To Participate In WH Summit on Countering Violent Extremism (Video)

But of course this should come as no surprise.

Matthew Vadum of FronPageMagazine reported:

Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday.

The so-called Summit on Countering Violent Extremism comes as President Obama seeks formal authorization from Congress to wage war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).

The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, operates mosques in and around Boston.

Members of the anti-terrorist community are outraged that officials of ISB will participate in discussions of anti-terrorism best practices on Feb. 18.

Via the Center for Security Policy:

President Obama is hosting a Countering Violent Extremism Summit this Wednesday Feb. 18 at the White House. The problem is the groups he has invited to help him “solve” the problem are part of the Global Jihad Movement. Tell the President we want to Defeat The Global Jihad, with the Secure Freedom Strategy not pander to the Islamists.

“The Islamic Society of Boston and the Muslim American Society there are riddled with extremists!”

Michael Warren at the Weekly Standard asks, “What sort of progress can Americans expect from this summit?”

If you guessed “a lot of social justice pablum about fighting “root causes,”  you are correct!

According to a senior official who previewed the summit with reporters, the Obama administration views countering violent exteremism (what they label CVE) as “one incredibly important element” of the government’s counterterrorism and national security strategy.

“[O]ur CVE efforts are premised on the central goal of preventing violent extremism and the extremists themselves and their supporters from inspiring, radicalizing, financing or recruiting individuals or groups in the United States from committing acts of violence,” said the official. “Our approach empowers communities to push back against violent extremists.”

What does that mean, exactly? The official continued: “Really at the core of our approach is that the government does not have all the answers in combatting violent extremism. It is, at its core, a bottom-up approach. It puts communities with civic leaders, with religious authorities, with community power brokers, teachers, health providers, et cetera, in the driver’s seat. They know their citizens best. They are the first line of defense to prevent or counter radicalizing forces that can ultimately lead to violence. And so our approach is to really embrace and empower what local communities can do.”

Marie Harf debuted the Regime’s social justice remedy to combat ISIS on Hardball, last night and even Chris Matthews wasn’t having it:

AoSHQ: And so while Marie was putting together photo-collages of CUTE BOYS!!!, this happened.

The BBC:

Jihadist militants from Islamic State (IS) have burned to death 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, the local police chief says.Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the security forces.

IS fighters captured much of the town, near Ain al-Asad air base, last week.

That’s right where our troops are Sheltered in Place.

It is believed the job-seeking jihadis were on line hoping to get hired as greeters at Target when one among them said “Ah fuck this, let’s start burning families to death,” to the general approval of the queue.

Col Obeidi said a compound that houses the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack.He pleaded for help from the government and the international community.

The fighting and poor communications in the area make it difficult to confirm such reports.

They’re trying to draw us out, I think. And we’re so weakly positioned there we can’t go out, because they’ll massacre our troops to a man.

Well-played, Obama. Very well played.

God help us.

Dean Obeidallah at the Daily Beast wonders fretfully if the focus of the summit will be “just on Muslims?”

‘Cause no fair, you guys. What about the Crusades an’ stuff?

Or will the summit look at combatting extremist violence of all types including those related to white supremacists, “Patriot groups,” and even violence that is Christian inspired? If we truly want to save American lives, it needs to be the latter.

I will be attending the summit. In advance of this event, I spoke to several Muslim American leaders about their views of and concerns with it. The responses ranged from some having strong fears that it could further the false but often heard narrative that terrorism is committed only by Muslims. Others, however, unreservedly welcomed this summit as an opportunity to partner with the government to counter radicals.

I’m sure Dean has nothing to worry about. This is the Obama administration we’re talking about.

No – Really? Obama Amnesty Will Allow Illegal Immigrants to Vote (Video)

A new revelation about Obama’s executive amnesty has all of Washington wearing their “shock faces.” A giant loophole that no one could have ever foreseen, will allow illegals to vote in American elections.

The Washington Times reported:

President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty will make it easier for illegal immigrants to improperly register and vote in elections, state elections officials testified to Congress on Thursday, saying that the driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers they will be granted create a major voting loophole.

While stressing that it remains illegal for noncitizens to vote, secretaries of state from Ohio and Kansas said they won’t have the tools to sniff out illegal immigrants who register anyway, ignoring stiff penalties to fill out the registration forms that are easily available at shopping malls, motor vehicle bureaus and in curbside registration drives.

Anyone registering to vote attests that he or she is a citizen, but Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said mass registration drives often aren’t able to give due attention to that part, and so illegal immigrants will still get through.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach said even some motor vehicle bureau workers automatically ask customers if they want to register to vote, which some noncitizens in the past have cited as their reason for breaking the law to register.

“It’s a guarantee it will happen,” Mr. Kobach said.

Here is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioning of Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted about voter fraud, yesterday:

In a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform joint subcommittee hearing, Rep. Jim Jordan, OH-04, questions Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted about voter fraud, and how President Obama’s executive actions on immigration could further undermine voting integrity.

Katie Pavlich, Townhall: Kansas Secretary of State: Illegal Aliens Registering to Vote is a Massive Problem Nationwide:

During a House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday, Secretaries of State Kris Kobach from Kansas and Jon Husted of Ohio warned that a loophole in President Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration could lead to millions of non-citizens obtaining the ability to vote in U.S. elections.

“I want to bring to your attention my concern that the President’s recent Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will make it more difficult for elections officials to determine if all voters meet the primary standard for voting – U.S. citizenship. I am not here to debate immigration policy or the President’s executive actions. However, I am here to emphatically say that we cannot follow both the federal law and the executive action and ensure the integrity of the elections process without further assistance from Congress and the Obama administration,” Husted said in prepared testimony. “For an estimated four to five million non-citizens, the President’s executive actions provide access to Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses. These are the same documents that federal law requires the states to recognize as valid forms of identification for voter registration. Under federal law, anyone with a valid Social Security number or driver’s license number can register to vote, provided they attest that they are a U.S. citizen. However, there is no way for us to validate this citizenship statement, since under the executive actions previously undocumented non-citizens will have access to the same documents as U.S. citizens. The issue becomes especially complicated in states like Ohio where millions of dollars are spent on third – party voter registration drives where no election official would be present to make clear the eligibility requirements for voting.”

Charles Krauthammer: Obama’s Buzzfeed Selfies “Truly Distasteful”

I long for the return of warm weather.

Because with the return of Spring, we’ll see more presidential golfing and less presidential mooning and preening for the camera in frivolous interviews with YouTube personalities, and left-wing a$$hole websites.

The latest presidential embarrassment came in the form of a Buzzfeed/ObamaCare infomercial that was filmed on the same day the nation heard the awful news about a young American woman’s death at the hands of ISIS and as Americans were evacuating Yemen .

My God.

On Special Report, Thursday night, Charles Krauthammer said when he first saw the video of Obama taking selfies and making funny faces he found it “amusing.”

“The idea that you could diminish the dignity of a president who gave a one-on-one  with someone whose claim to fame is bathing in a tub of Froot Loops is a rather paradoxical one,” Krauthammer  noted.

“But when I learned when he did it, it really is of a piece with playing golf after you learn of the beheading of an American, that makes it truly distasteful.”

Krauthammer added, “it just shows you how frivolous he is in executing his office. And that I think is not a question of the dignity of the office, but of the seriousness of the man.”

An Apologetic SPLC Removes Dr. Ben Carson From Extremist List

SPLC-Ben-Carson-Extremist-List

Well well. 

After drawing a firestorm of criticism, last week, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has removed the conservative pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson from its “extremist list.”

SPLC said in a release, “In October 2014, we posted an “Extremist File” of Dr. Ben Carson. This week, as we’ve come under intense criticism for doing so, we’ve reviewed our profile and have concluded that it did not meet our standards, so we have taken it down and apologize to Dr. Carson for having posted it.”

Of course they didn’t notice that putting the conservative philanthropist and possible 2016 presidential candidate on their extremist list “didn’t meet their standards” until after it was exposed and a huge public outcry ensued.

The SPLC had cited Carson’s “pro-traditional marriage stance, opposition to ObamaCare, and support for a flat tax as reasons for placing him on the list alongside members of the KKK, Neo-Nazis, and the Westboro Baptist Church.”

The liberal group isn’t completely backing down from their criticism of Dr. Carson, stating they want to look into if a “better researched” version of his profile should be included in their list.

“We laud Dr. Carson for his many contributions to medicine and his philanthropic
work, and we, like so many others, are inspired by his personal story. Nevertheless, particularly because Dr. Carson is such a prominent person, we believe that his views should be closely examined,” the release said, before going on to list some of the quotes they believe to be “extreme.”

I don’t laud the left wing extremists at the SPLC who tried to pull a fast one on a decent conservative because they disagree with him on social issues – but were forced to back down when their disinformation was exposed and their credibility was on the line.

These repugnant Fascists are yearning for the day when they won’t have to back down from demonizing their political enemies.

Republican FCC Commish: Obama’s Net Neutrality Plan Is a Government Takeover of the Internet


B9msr4jIUAAj1GF

Image via 

Commissioner Arjit Pai, a Republican member of the Federal Communications Commission has been sounding the alarm about Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet with a 332 page regulation that will be passed on February 27 unless a large enough outcry from the public prevents it. Pai told Mark Levin on Wednesday,  that the document goes well beyond what he ever imagined the administration would propose, amounting to huge increases in internet rates, and government control of nearly every aspect of the internet.

Via The Washington Times:

Commissioner Arjit Pai also called on FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to release the “secret” proposal to the public prior to the agency voting on it. Mr. Wheeler last week released an outline of strict new federal oversight of the Internet, a plan known to advocates as so-called “net neutrality,” but won’t reveal the text of the plan until the FCC’s meeting on Feb. 26.

“The American people are being misled about President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet,” Mr. Pai said. “Last week’s carefully managed rollout was designed to downplay the plans of a massive intrusion in the Internet economy. I have now read the 332-page plan. It is worse than I had imagined.”

He added, “The claim that President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet does not include rate regulation is flat-out false.”

Mr. Wheeler said the plan will declare broadband a “telecommunications service” under Title II of the Communications Act, giving the FCC broad new regulatory powers. It’s a more intrusive proposal than Mr. Wheeler originally outlined last year, and it more closely follows guidelines endorsed by Mr. Obama last November.

The FCC is supposed to be an independent organization but according to Pai, Obama has been directing it since the 2012 election.

On Monday, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, asked Mr. Wheeler in a letter to turn over any documents related to communications and meetings involving the White House and agency officials.

Mr. Johnson told the FCC chair that he was concerned there was “apparent pressure exerted on you and your agency by the White House.” The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee also is investigating the issue.
