Are They All Truly Refugees?

 

Where are their wives, children and the elderly?
Where are their wives, children and the elderly?

It has been difficult the past few days, since the Paris attack, to watch social media and read how some feel that there is no real threat, that these people are true refugees yearning to breathe free.  Someone actually posted on Facebook that they felt they had to re-evaluate their view of me because they held me in such high regard … until they found out my stance on the Syrian refugees.

What people seem to be missing is that we are not getting the full story.  Over the last 40 years or so the media has discovered that their job is no longer to report the news in an unbiased fashion, it is now to use their position and the public’s trust to influence their opinions, thoughts and perspectives.  Even in some of the most liberal nations of Europe where the citizenry is being literally overrun by refugees, they are crying out for help that is far too late to ask for.  Mothers are seeing their daughters raped by refugees who devalue women as property.  Women, gays and other protected groups are being beaten in public because of the way they dress, walk or talk or because they may have glanced a bit too long at these outsiders that politicians happily welcomed but didn’t have to live with.

Today I watched an interview on Morning Joe on MSNBC where they interviewed NY-R Congressman Peter King about the concern over the refugees.  At one point King and co-host Mika Brezinzki got into a back and forth over whether or not these refugees were being vetted properly.  King insisted that based on what he has been told by people at the highest levels of government at Homeland Security and the FBI, there is no way to definitively vet these refugees because there are no databases or even collective agencies in their native country that can verify that they are who they say you are.

Naive Mika insisted that they were being vetted, they were being interviewed, they were getting medical histories and medical exams, etc.  Well, as I pointed out to Mika in a tweet, that’s not vetting – that is processing.  No one has any way of confirming that what US officials have been told about these individuals is true.  We have to take everything either at face value or with a grain of salt.

Far too many are trying, and unsuccessfully I might add, to equate these modern-day refugees with those who came on the Mayflower, those who were war refugees in the 60’s and even some from World War II.  While these individuals from history were clearly fleeing some type of persecution of evil.  We cannot be so sure about this conclusion with this group of “refugees.”  Why?  Well, there are several reasons, the most recent being the Boston Marathon Bombing which was carried out by two radicalized Muslims who were here as refugees and getting a significant amount of tax payer dollars to live while plotting their attack.

Going further still, many radical groups have come right out and told us, in no uncertain terms, what their plan is and how the will carry it out.  Our weak borders and illegal immigration issues are going to be what threatens us most as all of this becomes a definitive perfect storm.  Yet the elites of Washington and the governors of states who welcome these refugees will not be the one who suffer from the violence that awaits us.  And awaiting us it is.  The sleeper cells are here, they are waiting for the go-ahead and it will be everyday Americans like you and me who will suffer the chaos, the death and the tears.

They will be in our neighborhoods, in our schools with our children; not near the politicians who allowed them to come here.  It is elitism in its purest form.

I would ask you to watch this, and decide if you want this in your neighborhood.  Around your children, your elderly parents.  HERE

Obama and Wasserman: Sorry! Feminism does not Equal Abortion

If you need more proof that the Obama Campaign is running scared, look no further than this video (Hat tip: Chicks on the Right)  that was posted on YouTube on Friday.   Entitled, “Republican Women for Obama,” two women featured in the video have been proven to be strong in the Democratic party – one having enough juice to have actually had a meeting with Michelle Obama earlier this year.

So, for starters, not only are the women in this video disingenuous, I have to laugh at the scenery given in the video as well. Trying to appeal to the rural voters, we see farms with old barns, wheelbarrows, flowers and the wind blowing through their hairs. This little veiled slight-of-hand didn’t get past me – making liberals look wholesome?

Going further, the claim that supporting abortion somehow makes Obama a believer in the Republican stance of smaller government is nothing short of laughable.  In fact it is hysterical.  How can any rational thinker say that by supporting abortion in addition to supporting that governmental financial monstrosity called Obamacare equates to smaller government?

This video is nothing more than an affront to all American women and a direct insult to our intelligence. As a Conservative I know how to glean real information from an ad or article and don’t simply take anything that comes from either side of the aisle as gospel.  My response to this is simple – there is no way any of these women could have been long-time Republicans because Republican women just aren’t that naïve.   This video erroneously insinuates that Feminism equal Abortion.  This has been a liberal tactic for years now – telling women that if they don’t support abortion that they are saying they don’t support their gender’s right to equality within the  law.  True equality covers every aspect of our lives politically, socially, economically and educationally.  Equality is not synonymous with the right to an abortion.

The Republican Party’s platform on abortion has been consistent for as long as I can remember – we are against it.  Some waiver when the issue of rape and incest are brought into the picture; yet we are firm on the fact that is it not a form of contraception.  Going further, these women are claiming that the only issue that is of concern to them is a woman’s right to choose.  If this election were based on this one issue alone, then why are both campaigns wasting all of this money campaigning and traveling around this great country of ours?  The Obama Campaign is trying to narrow the scope of their argument to the only part of it that he can control.

Because of Obama’s dismal record on the economy, his Obamacare and his inability to control the deficit (to name a few); he has no other choice than to attempt to move the focus of the election away from his failures.  He tries to tell those stupid enough to believe him that the Republican Party has suddenly changed its stance on abortion and that we now want to overturn Roe v. Wade.   Sorry Honey, but that has been on the Republican books since the day Roe v. Wade was passed.

After taking a look at how Democratic Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was taken to task by CNN’s Anderson Cooper for clearly lying about the Romney/Ryan Campaign’s position on abortion by misquoting the LA Times, this kind of slight-of-hand is obviously now part of the DNC’s platform.  Taking completely out of context said quote, Wasserman was caught red-handed by Cooper and did so much doublespeak in defense of her misquote that she shot herself in the foot so many times I lost track.  Cooper caught her red-handed misrepresenting a quote from a LA Times article, which spoke in generalities about the GOP’s platform and made no specific reference to abortion.   Wasserman used this LA Times article as the foundation of her claim to Obama supporters in a fundraising email stating that the GOP was making substantive changes to the party platform on abortion . After Cooper refusing to let the issue go, Wasserman refuses to admit that she was caught and stated that, “It didn’t matter.” It didn’t matter because, according to Wasserman, the purpose of the email was to show,

Anderson, the bottom line message of our e- mail is that, A., women need to know the difference between the two parties and the two presidential candidates on a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices and that Mitt Romney can say that he’s for an exception for rape or incest.  His party platform doesn’t reflect that. He has previously fully embraced a human life amendment with no exception and said he would be delighted to support it and women need to know the difference. And women need to know that Mitt Romney is simply saying one thing, but not insisting that his party’s policies as reflected in their platform reflect his views. And we’re not going to let him get away with it. This is an important decision.

Cooper goes on and insists that a candidate’s views can be different from the party’s platform and that while a candidate can make suggestions or recommend changes to the platform, Romney’s platform and the parties do not and apparently aren’t one in the same.   Remember, this is Anderson Cooper, not Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, going after Wasserman for outright lying to solicit funds from Obama supporters.  That speaks volumes when someone like Cooper isn’t giving the liberal left a free pass when they lie to the American people.

I guess my next question would be; what does matter to the DNC?  -Apparently winning at any cost and a woman’s right to an abortion – those are the only two things.

In closing, I want the media to continue to brow beat Wasserman as she overtly uses misdirection to deceive the American people.

And, I want these women to put their money where their mouth is. I want them to show us their voter registration record for the past 10 years and then, I would love to have a chat with these ladies!  We can sit out on that nice patio at their farm …

Dishonorable Disclosures: Why Obama Doesn’t Deserve to be Our Commander in Chief

This morning I was greeted by the faces of heroes…

A few days ago a 501(c)(4) educational group, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, released a powerful and timely video wherein active duty as well as retired military officers, intelligence officers and even Navy SEALs share the reckless abandonment of the present administration.

Their website defines their mission statement as:

STOP the politicians, President Obama and others, from politically capitalizing on US national security operations and secrets!

EDUCATE the public on the importance and necessity of Operational Security in today’s environment.

To Do Nothing is not an option as that allows the special operations and intelligence capabilities to be degraded, and paraded around like a show dog…ACTION IS REQUIRED NOW!

By knowing choosing the political punch of intelligence information over the need for operational security, this administration has put our nation and its military personnel in danger by sharing what amounts to military secrets with the world. The video, which runs approximately 22 minutes, focuses on how Obama and his administration mishandled the death of Osama Bin Laden by not only being too quick to make the news public but also for having given far too much detail into the operational aspects of the raid.

According to these heroes, the Obama Administration chose to announce the death of Osama as soon as possible instead of giving intelligence officials the opportunity to capitalize on the potentially significant amount of intel that was seized at the compound where they found Osama.  This shows the OPSEC immaturity of the most senior leaders at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Instead of allowing military and intelligence agents time to develop and exploit this intel and leave the world in the dark on the death of OBL, the Obama Administration wanted to take advantage of the political side of this information and announced it to the dismay of not just military personnel but members of Congress, even some on the left-side of the aisle.

The other side of the coin addresses those who seek and provide the intel.  First, it will make the job of those who search for intelligence much more difficult because they will find fewer individuals willing to share information knowing that US politicians would sacrifice an asset for a sound byte on the evening news and the attention of constituents.

It is believed that so much information  on the OBL raid was shared (name of unit, location, operational tactics and techniques, etc.) that the lives of those who took part in the raid and their families are now in jeopardy.  Knowing the tenacity of our enemy, terrorists will expel an exorbitant amount of effort to track down and destroy these individuals.  Now, they and their families live in constant fear of retribution because the Obama Administration used these men as political weapons to boost their approval ratings.

The Pakistani doctor who provided the intel to the US intelligence community is now spending over 30 years in jail for his involvement while President Obama invited members of Hollywood’s A-List to the White House to provide them with details on the raid so a film on the operation could be developed.

The video shares other specific and highly viable intel that the Obama Administration has willfully leaked to the public which has put the intelligence community at a huge deficit on a global level.  Tactics, technology and techniques have now been publicize to the extent that they are now seen as obsolete.

The Obama Administration has reacted to this OPSEC group by likening them to the Swift Boat campaign that Vietnam Veterans levied against Senator John Kerry (R-MA) during his 2004 presidential campaign.  While an interesting comparison, there is none.  Kerry’s situation was based on a he-said, she-said of his exploits as a junior Navy officer during the Vietnam War.  In the case of the Obama Administration, there is insurmountable evidence, supported by both sides of the political aisle, expressing utter amazement at the audacity of the White House and the undeniable proof that this administration has little, if any, respect or understanding of the military or our clandestine services.

In contrast, while Obama has no issues with putting the lives of other families in jeopardy, his family is another story.  Today while discussing this story with a friend,  she shared the debacle at a recent concert of UK boy band One Direction in Fairfax, Virginia attended by one of the first daughters, Malia Obama.  Security was so tight that young fans were not only frisked upon entering but they were not allowed to bring in posters, many handmade, to hold up during the concert.

A few years ago, I had the privilege of attending the Evening Parade at the US Marine Corps Barracks at the famed 8th and I Streets in Washington, DC.  In attendance that evening were the President and First Lady along with a small entourage. We were required to be in our seats at least an hour prior to the start of the parade and were not allowed to exit the parade grounds until Secret Service members alerted 8th and I officials that the President was safely inside the White House; a wait of approximately 45 minutes.

Now, if our Commander in Chief can understand these security precautions for himself and his family; why can’t he understand them for the men who have made a conscious choice to serve and protect the ideals of the United States of America?

“Eight Years Later”? The NYT Editorial Needs a History Lesson

This narrow-mined editorial, sans by-line,  in the NY Times is nothing more than the Obama Press attempting to spin an issue, as he often does, claiming inheritance as his cover. 

More and more often Obama himself or a member of his staff is pointing the finger at the Bush Adminstration for their ills. I find this move childish and a true sign of the simple fact that Obama just wanted to show that he could win the election, not run the country. Much like the brides who focus their entire energy on planning the perfect wedding, they never take a look at what happens after the honeymoon and if she and her future husband really have what it takes to survive marriage.

The “ghost” writer of this editorial needs to do some homework on the intelligence community – they are a bunch of boys playing on the same playground refusing to share their toys. The CIA, FBI, NSA, HLS, etc. all want to be the one getting the press when a story breaks so they refuse to share info and we, the American people, pay the price.

Legislation has been passed, some even repeatedly, insisting that the big boys of DC’s Alphabet Soup Gangs start freely sharing information yet they still refuse to do so for no other reason that pride, bragging rights. This has been a problem long before Obama was born, let alone took office. If Obama wants agencies to share information he will have to start making high-level heads roll to get their attention.

Unfortunately, Obama is still sitting on his couch eating popcorn watching his inauguration, much like the unhappy bride watching her perfectly planned wedding video … both are ignoring the reality that is staring them in the face and wondering how something so perfectly planned could have gone so badly so quickly.

DOUTHAT: Celebrity? Palin v. Obama

Portrait of Barack Obama

Today’s op-ed in the NYT by Ross Douthat is a textbook definition of duplicity.  Douthat analyses the celebrity of Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee yet this quote had me questioning Ross’ sanity, ” They seemed unready for high office, and owed their appeal more to personality than to substance.”

Now, in different circles, this same quote would lead many to think of someone else whose political resume contains three entries; community organizer, state senator and one term as US Senator.

Ross’ duplicitous bias continues on with, “It’s possible to be a celebrity and a serious politician at the same time: Barack Obama’s career proves as much. But Obama’s celebrity status is frequently a political liability, and he’s (usually) wise enough to know it. That’s why he plays the wonk as often as he plays the global icon.”

One would have to be sitting on the porch with some very impressive rose colored glasses to not laugh at the idea of Obama as a serious politician.  Seriously!

There IS Hope … Well Maybe

Hello?  Is anybody home?  It's me ... The President?
Hello? Is anybody home? It's me ... The President?

Just took a jaunt over to Fox News and found a few fun stories that would be perfect for what I like to call one of my potpourri posts.

1)      A State Department employee who is also an attorney has filed a lawsuit claiming that Sec. of State Hillary Clinton has illegally taken the post and must resign.  Here is AP’s report on the lawsuit, shortest AP article I have ever seen!

2)   Hannity has a new segment called Media Mash that I really like. He takes a glimpse at the week’s media bias and then has a guest contributor do the commentary with him. Unfortunately there is no link to this week’s segment but if you do go to Fox News >Hannity>Videos find the video clip entitled “Window Treatment”, it’s a hoot!

3)   President Obama tried to walk into the White House through a window! Sure, a window can look like a door and he has only occupied the White House for a little over a week so I can personally cut him some slack. I am sure he is still figuring out how to get from the private residency to various staffers offices. Now, yeah, it is funny for a chuckle but how this was basically ignored and how the flubs that President Bush made during his term were again, night and day.

But there is no Media Bias, right?
