Obama's Four Front War


And it was given unto him 
to make war with the saints, 
and to overcome them: 
and power was given him over all kindreds, 
and tongues, and nations.

1) ARAB WORLD --- ISIS Declares Caliphate, Vows To Attack Mecca

2) ISRAEL ---Bodies Of Three Kidnapped Israeli Teens Found In West Bank, Murdered By Palestinian Terrorists – Update: Netanyahu Calls Hamas “Human Animals,” Vows To Take Revenge - Muslimscum Attack Ambulance Carrying Dead Bodies of Three Murdered Teens

3) RUSSIA --- US Power Plants Under Cyber Attack From Russia

4) AMERICA --- Obama Stirs Up "Immigration Crisis, With Tens of Thousands of Unaccompanied Children Crossing Border - Boehner Refuses to Take The Bait and Negotiate - Obama Declares Congress' Refusal To Pass The Law He Wants Means He Is Able to Legislate From the Executive Level

---

Maybe it's unfair to call this a Four Front War.

Maybe I should call it Obama's Four-Ring Circus.

I wonder how long it will take before we have to send in the clowns.

Tragedy: 3 students found murdered

It's just as I - and many other people, to be sure - had feared: the kidnapped yeshiva students were found dead:
Police have found the dead bodies of the three Israeli teenagers kidnapped by Hamas activists three weeks ago.

This evening Israeli authorities confirmed reports that the human remains found earlier this evening near Hebron were indeed the bodies of the abducted teenagers.

The security cabinet convened an emergency meeting as the IDF boosted its military presence around Hebron.

The yeshivah students - Israeli Eyal Yifrach, 19, Israeli Gilad Shaar, 16 and Israeli-American Naftali Frenkel, 16 – were last seen near Hebron on June 12.

Today, Israeli officers were dismissed after an investigative body found a “serious failure of conduct” on the night three teenagers were kidnapped by Hamas activists.

The investigative committee, which released its report today, found that operators monitoring the police emergency hotline had mishandled a phone call on the night of the kidnapping (June 12).
I'd say the police now have a lot to answer for. And the Hamas definitely must be made to pay a very heavy price for their sadistic act. This is what happens when faustian pacts are made with terrorists, and now, the authorities are going to have to prove themselves capable of taking down the jihadists maiming this country and its citizens, including the PLO.

Here's more on the topic at USA Today.

Update: PM appropriately calls the murderers "human animals", and says that Hamas will pay for their repulsive crime.

LOL - ISIS Promises to Destroy the Kaaba in Mecca

Mohammed Craps a Kaaba

Pass the popcorn. This oughta be good.

I wish them luck in their endeavors.

APA reported, via Free Republic:
Representatives of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) stated that they will ruin the Kaaba after capturing Saudi Arabia.
APA reports quoting Turkish media that ISIS wants to take control of Arar city of Saudi Arabia and start operations here.
ISIS member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasi said that they would destroy the Kaaba in Mecca: “If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah.”
The ISIS terrorist group has a reputation for destroying ancient artifacts and religious monuments.

Journalist Fouad Hussein Called It In 2005, His Prediction About the Course of Jihad Eerily Predict Today's Events


Fouad Hussein spent time in prison with al-Zarqawi. He seems to have understood the strategy of Al Qaeda and the Grand Jihad.

Events this weekend reminded me of this from 2005:



  • The First Phase Known as "the awakening" -- this has already been carried out and was supposed to have lasted from 2000 to 2003, or more precisely from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington to the fall of Baghdad in 2003. The aim of the attacks of 9/11 was to provoke the US into declaring war on the Islamic world and thereby "awakening" Muslims. "The first phase was judged by the strategists and masterminds behind al-Qaida as very successful," writes Hussein. "The battle field was opened up and the Americans and their allies became a closer and easier target." The terrorist network is also reported as being satisfied that its message can now be heard "everywhere."

  • The Second Phase "Opening Eyes" is, according to Hussein's definition, the period we are now in and should last until 2006. Hussein says the terrorists hope to make the western conspiracy aware of the "Islamic community." Hussein believes this is a phase in which al-Qaida wants an organization to develop into a movement. The network is banking on recruiting young men during this period. Iraq should become the center for all global operations, with an "army" set up there and bases established in other Arabic states.

    The Third Phase This is described as "Arising and Standing Up" and should last from 2007 to 2010. "There will be a focus on Syria," prophesies Hussein, based on what his sources told him. The fighting cadres are supposedly already prepared and some are in Iraq. Attacks on Turkey and -- even more explosive -- in Israel are predicted. Al-Qaida's masterminds hope that attacks on Israel will help the terrorist group become a recognized organization. The author also believes that countries neighboring Iraq, such as Jordan, are also in danger.

    The Fourth Phase Between 2010 and 2013, Hussein writes that al-Qaida will aim to bring about the collapse of the hated Arabic governments. The estimate is that "the creeping loss of the regimes' power will lead to a steady growth in strength within al-Qaida." At the same time attacks will be carried out against oil suppliers and the US economy will be targeted using cyber terrorism.

    The Fifth Phase This will be the point at which an Islamic state, or caliphate, can be declared. The plan is that by this time, between 2013 and 2016, Western influence in the Islamic world will be so reduced and Israel weakened so much, that resistance will not be feared. Al-Qaida hopes that by then the Islamic state will be able to bring about a new world order.

    The Sixth Phase Hussein believes that from 2016 onwards there will a period of "total confrontation." As soon as the caliphate has been declared the "Islamic army" it will instigate the "fight between the believers and the non-believers" which has so often been predicted by Osama bin Laden.

    The Seventh Phase This final stage is described as "definitive victory." Hussein writes that in the terrorists' eyes, because the rest of the world will be so beaten down by the "one-and-a-half billion Muslims," the caliphate will undoubtedly succeed. This phase should be completed by 2020, although the war shouldn't last longer than two years.

    (There was an awful lot of poopooing about this "plan" at the time. In the same article der Spiegel wrote "The supposed master plan for the years 2000 to 2020 reads in parts more like a group of ideas cobbled together in retrospect, than something planned and presented in advance. And not to mention the terrorist agenda is simply unworkable: the idea that al-Qaida could set up a caliphate in the entire Islamic world is absurd. The 20-year plan is based mainly on religious ideas. It hardly has anything to do with reality -- especially phases four to seven." Yeah. Ok.)

    Bill Roggio wrote about it

    As did others

    Well done Uncle Barry and friends. Well done indeed.

    THIS MAN WILL GET US ALL KILLED

    The REAL criterion for RINO: THE EXPORT IMPORT BANK

    So you were pissed at Obama for sending aid to a manufacturing corp like Solyndra because it was really totally corrupt, instead of using those funds for PURE solar power research?
    You want a republican majority to stop the rising crony capitalism (you know, sort of like, Bayer, BASF, and Krupp and another govt at another time?)
    But nothing is happening. And on issues such as massive, crisis level illegal immigration (i.e a totally unsecured border ..no matter your feeling about legal immirgration) the republican party seems VAPID as an organized entity?
    Look at this …. this is a libertarian market issue and there is agreement over this with VOX (Ezra Klein?), and TPM (Josh Marshall ?…AYFKM?).
    Just THINK about what that all means.
    It’s not just Obama and the Solyndra’s of the Chicago Way. Wall Street has LOST the edge of market capitalism in the fat and gravy we reference as TOO BIG TO FAIL
    READ THIS - CATO:

    Big Business Clashes with Libertarians and Tea Party over Ex-Im Bank

    Two weeks ago I wrote about the efforts of big business to defeat libertarian-leaning legislators in states across the country. To confirm my point, on the same day the article appeared the Michigan Chamber of Commerce endorsed the opponent of Rep. Justin Amash, the one of whom I had written, “Most members of Congress vote for unconstitutional bills. Few of them make it an explicit campaign promise.”
    Now a battle is brewing in Congress that pits libertarians and Tea Party supporters against the country’s biggest businesses. The Wall Street Journal headlines, “GOP’s Attack on Export-Import Bank Alarms Business Allies.” The “rise of tea-party-aligned lawmakers” is threatening this most visible example of corporate welfare, and David Brat’s attacks on “crony capitalism” in his surprise defeat of Eric Cantor have made some Republicans nervous. Amash told the Journal, “There are some large corporations that would like corporate welfare to continue.”
    The biggest beneficiaries of Ex-Im’s billions are companies such as Boeing, General Electric and Caterpillar,  according to Veronique de Rugy, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center. Cato scholars have made the same point, including Aaron Lukas and Ian Vasquez in 2002 and Sallie James in 2011.
    Matthew Yglesias of Vox notes, “The Export-Import Bank is a great example of the kind of thing a libertarian populist might oppose. That’s because the bank is a pretty textbook example of the government stepping in to arbitrarily help certain business owners.” And he points out that supporters of the Bank include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, the AFL-CIO, Haley Barbour, and Dick Gephardt. He could have added Tom Donnelly of the American Enterprise Institute.
    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said he worried about “a libertarian theology that’s really starting to creep in.” I hope he’s right.

    Islamisation of Europe: When will Russia react?


    From PI News Service:


    How long will Russia stand idle and watch how Western Europe is transferred into a predominantly Islamic-, nuclear-armed-, EU-totalitarian entity. Since Russia is not governed by dreamy ideologists but political realists, one may assume that the Kremlin is concerned about the consequences of the Islamization and totalitarianism in EU-Western Europe for the external security of Russia. Especially the following issues might concern Russian strategists:
    1. The Islamization of EU-Western Europe is a threat to Russia
    Despite a growing opposition movement in some Western European countries, like France and England, it can be expected that Western European governments will continue their previous politic of Islamization in an unaltered manner. Also in the future, they will get millions of Muslims into Europe, who will for their part continue the ‘Conquest from within’ and step by step extend their influence on power over politics, administration and the armed forces. Especially in Germany, with its feeble opposition, the government will push the Islamization forward with particular aggressiveness. Although it may take another three to four decades until Muslim minorities have become the majority in important Western European heartlands – in Belgium, Holland, vast parts of France, England, Germany, Austria – the Islamic influence on the political leadership in Western Europe will shortly be strong enough to make Russia and the former Eastern bloc remain the bulwark left against the spread of Sharia in Europe and the traditionally aggressive Islamic ideology of world conquest.
    An Islamized Western Europe will inevitably come into a cultural-ideological conflict with Russia as well as the rather nationally oriented states of the former Eastern bloc unlikely to be Islamized over the medium term, especially Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. It has to be assumed that primarily the – opposition-less but highly influenced by Islam – country of Germany will incite especially loudly against Christian Russia but also other countries of the former Eastern Bloc. Merkel’s latest tirades against Russia and the undisguised hostility towards Hungary potentially address future agitation and front lines in Europe in advance. Continue reading

    ISIS Declares Itself Caliphate, Changes Name To “IS” --- Calls On Al Qaeda To Join Them, Declares “International Jihad”


    From RT:
    ISIS jihadists have declared the captured territories from Iraq’s Diyala province to Syria’s Aleppo a new Islamic State – a ‘caliphate.’ 
    They removed ‘Iraq and the Levant’ from their name and urged other radical Sunni groups to pledge their allegiance. ISIS announced that it should now be called ‘The Islamic State’ and declared its chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as “the caliph” of the new state and “leader for Muslims everywhere,” the radical Sunni militant group said in an audio recording distributed online on Sunday. 
    This is the first time since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1923 that a Caliph – which means a political successor to Prophet Muhammad – has been declared. 
    The decision was made following the group’s Shura Council meeting on Sunday, according to ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani.
    The jihadist group has also claimed that they are now a legitimate state. 
    The Islamic State has called on Al-Qaeda and other radical Sunni militants in the region to immediately pledge their allegiance, ushering in “a new era of international jihad.”

    Military Bans Bibles But Forces Soldiers to Adhere to Ramadan Rules


    Obamascum

    The US Air Force kicked Christian Gideon’s volunteers off base in March.
    The Bibles were too offensive and violated the separation of church and state rule.
    But US military personnel are expected to adhere Islamic practices during Ramadan.
    Stars and Stripes reported:
    U.S. personnel accustomed to drinking their coffee on the drive to work will have to put that habit on hold for about a month. It’s one of a few lifestyle changes Americans will have to make during the holy month of Ramadan.
    Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Officials expect Ramadan to begin at sunrise on Saturday, depending on when the new moon is sighted. The holy month lasts for approximately 30 days — until about July 28. For Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a month of fasting and devotion to God. Most Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, when families gather for Iftar — the meal that breaks the fast.
    For the 8,200 U.S. personnel living here, and those serving throughout the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility — including servicemembers, civilian personnel, contractors and family members — the month may require changing some daily routines.
    Businesses and government offices will reduce hours and most restaurants will be closed during daylight hours.
    While not required to fast during Ramadan, in Bahrain, Americans can be fined or detained by local authorities for eating, drinking or smoking in public when off-base during daylight hours.
    Navy officials are requiring U.S. personnel to dress more conservatively off-base during Ramadan. Although not a requirement by Bahraini authorities, the Navy is demanding that men wear long-sleeved shirts and women wear sleeved blouses that cover their elbows. Also, men must wear long trousers, and women should wear pants or skirts that cover the knees.

    New solar theory predicts imminent global cooling


    From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

    New solar theory predicts imminent global cooling. HT: joannenova 

    “Sharp cooling” to hit in the next five years, says new solar theory.
    If the Sun mainly controls the temperature on Earth, a turning point is almost upon us,” says Dr David Evans.
     “The reason for the cooling is the dramatic fall in solar radiation that started around 2004.” There is a delay — probably of around 11 years —  between changes in sunlight and temperatures on Earth, says Evans.

    Because of that delay, and the sudden drop in solar irradiance about 10 years ago, Evans expects a sharp cooling to hit in the next five years.

    Evans provides a graph of solar radiation since 1610, when sunspots were first recorded. The brown line shows solar radiation, which peaks about every 11 years due to the sunspot cycle. The red line is an 11-year smoother.

    There have been three big, steep falls in solar radiation in the last 400 years,” says Evans.
    “The first was in the 1600s. It led to the depths of the Little Ice Age, and the Maunder Minimum. This was the coldest period during the last 400 years. There used to be fairs on the ice in the Thames River in London, because it would freeze over for weeks at a time.
    The second fall is around the time of Napoleon and it preceded the second coldest period in the last 400 years, called the Dalton Minimum.
    The third fall occurred recently, starting in about 2004. This recent fall is as big as the fall in Napoleon’s time, almost as large as the fall in the 1600s, and it seems to be steeper than either of those falls. But the temperature hasn’t fallen … yet.

    Around the world a billion dollars a day is invested in renewable energy, largely with the hope of changing the weather,” says the joannenova.com.au website.

    Given that 20% of the world does not even have access to electricity, history books may marvel at how screwed priorities were, and how bureaucratized science cost so much more than the price of the grants.
    And yet, says joannenova, our five-star politicians are preparing only for global warming.Read the full story here.

    Canucks pulls the plug on the U.S. Keystone Pipeline – will send oil to Asia


    From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

    Canucks pulls the plug on the U.S. Keystone Pipeline – will send oil to Asia. HT: WUWT.
    HT:  Breitbart.

    Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.

    Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.
    The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.

    All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia.

    Rather than purchasing crude from a friendly and allied neighbor, the United States will most likely need to continue its reliance upon hostile sources like Venezuela.

    Energy analysts had hoped that construction of Keystone could have replaced almost half of the current U.S. daily crude purchases from that volatile, anti-American dictatorship, depriving Venezuela of the resources it relies upon to stay in power and fund its Cuban allies.

    You can’t say Canada didn’t give America a chance – they waited years for the American administration to come to their senses. But in the end, they couldn’t wait any longer, and have put the interests of Canadians first.

    Below is a helpful timeline of Keystone events, courtesy of Al Jazeera.

    US Supreme Court swallows EPA's faked global warming data


    From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

    US Supreme Court swallows EPA's faked global warming data. HT: WashingtonTimes.
    A fractured Supreme Court on Monday largely upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s radical rule designed to shut down the power plants that produce the most affordable electricity. The justices continue to accept the EPA’s labeling of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant.” This harmless gas, the agency insists, is melting the planet.
    Only the brave deny man’s responsibility for super-heating the globe in precincts where the wise and wonderful (just ask them) gather to reassure each other than they know best. “We know the trends,” President Obama told the graduates at the University of California at Irvine the other day. “The 18 warmest years on record have all happened since you graduates were born.”
    The charts and graphs devised by NASA and the government’s other science agencies back up the president’s words. And well they should, because the charts, like the “science,” were faked.
    The “Steven Goddard Real Science” blog compares the raw U.S. temperature records from the Energy Department’s United States Historical Climatology Network to the “final” processed figures, to demonstrate how the historical data have been “corrected,” using computer modeling.
    The modifications made to the past temperature record had the effect of cooling the 20th century, which makes temperatures over the last 14 years appear much warmer by comparison.

    Such changes don’t square with history, which shows the decade of the 1930s the hottest on record. The Dust Bowl storms were so severe they sent clouds of debris from Texas and Oklahoma to the East Coast, even darkening the skies over the U.S. Capitol one day in 1934.

    In an inconvenient article from 1999, written before the data had been “corrected,” 
    James Hansen, then a NASA;scientist, acknowledged that the climate had held steady after the Dust Bowl storms. 
    “In the U.S.,” wrote Mr. Hansen, “there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country.”

    With the global warming scam unraveling before his very eyes, President Obama and his administration want action now. “The question is not whether we need to act,” says Mr. Obama. “The overwhelming judgment of science, accumulated and measured and reviewed over decades, has put that question to rest. The question is whether we have the will to act before it’s too late.” 

    Too late for what? The planetary thermometer hasn’t budged in 15 years. Wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and other “extreme” weather events are at normal or below-normal levels. Pacific islands aren’t submerged. There’s so much ice the polar bears are celebrating. Read the full story here.

    Awakening People on the 3rd Street Promenade

    The Counter Jihadists Coalition of Southern California will be up on 3rd St. Promenade again tonight. If you don't remember them, click here to read about what they do on Saturday nights in Santa Monica. This is one of the most courageous and original approaches to educating our fellow non-Muslims about orthodox Islam we've ever seen.

    Ramadan starts today, so they're expecting "lots of activity." This image is from their newest brochure which they'll hand out tonight along with their other brochures. The outside of the tri-fold brochure, “Islam’s World Cup of Jihad” will also be enlarged and hanging from the front of their booth. If you're in the area, stop by and show your support. And think about the possibility of doing something similar yourself, wherever you live.

    The most important first task we have is educating people. Let the Counter Jihadists Coalition of Southern California be an inspiration to all of us.

    Clinton Advisor Says It's Time For Special Prosecutor In IRS Case


    From the New York Post:
    WASHINGTON — A close adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees with Republicans that it’s time for an independent prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups and missing e-mails. 
    Lanny Davis — who was a counselor to President Bill Clinton — said the IRS needs intense scrutiny from an outside investigator. 
    “There’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation” if Republicans were in charge, Davis said Friday.   
    Davis referenced the disclosure that IRS official Lois Lerner proposed investigating Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) after she received an invitation intended for him. The invite mentioned providing accommodations for Grassley’s wife. 
    “Looked like they were inappropriately offering to pay for his wife. Perhaps we should refer to Exam?” Lerner wrote to a colleague in 2012. 
    “It was completely almost yucky to read what she wrote,” Davis said. “If that were known by her superiors, she should have been fired.

    Louie Gohmert Introduces Bill Giving IRS Employees 20% Pay Cut UNTIL LERNER EMAILS ARE FOUND - Also Offers $1 Million Reward


    From the Daily Caller:
    Two Texas Congressmen introduced a bill, the Identify and Recover Lost Emails (IRS) Act (H.R. 4958), offering a $1 million reward for the recovery of former IRS director Lois Lerner’s missing emails, or a $500,000 reward for information concerning their whereabouts. 
    The bill, introduced by Republican congressmen Louie Gohmert and Bill Flores, also proposes a 20 percent salary cut for IRS employees until the emails are found. 
    “A Tea Party group in my district was one of the first conservative groups to be targeted,” Flores told Breitbart Texas. 
    “Then one of my donors appeared to be targeted… They’re all frustrated with the IRS. Then when this news [about the lost emails] came out, they were all even more agitated.” 
    The bill implies that Lerner’s emails were not completely or accidentally lost, and may be recovered. By using “negative reinforcement,” Flores and Gohmert hope the IRS will cave under pressure and end the drama. 
    “It seems that each time the IRS has evidence that will either prove with certainty its guilt or innocence, the evidence disappears,” Gohmert told KETK NBC. 
    “Both common sense and the law indicate, the evidence such as emails must have proved the IRS’s impropriety if not outright crimes. It is time the IRS either comes clean, or has a special prosecutor to clean it up. This bill should help in the interim.” 
    Both Gohmert and Flores believe the bill will receive “considerable support,” and are convinced the IRS emails will eventually turn up. 
    “I even think we’ll have some Democrats support it,” Flores said. “They’re scared of what the IRS has done to their reputation. We will not sit idly by as the IRS continues to work to cover up its blatant abuse of government power.”

    "Hijra" and the Hijab



    From Vlad Tepes Blog:
    According to Sam Solomon, author of The Mosque Exposed, and The Modern Day Trojan Horse, on Islamic immigration, the word ‘hijra’ has two meanings. One is for Muslims to move to non-muslim areas for the purpose of making them islamic and two, to increase the degree of islamic adherence in any one place. 
    Both are a journey towards islam for an area. In the example below, a libertarian minded person might think that in a muslim school any sort of dress code they want should be what it is you do, if you want the job. 
    The problem however is that somehow muslims have managed to get themselves exempted from dress codes that run contrary to islamic norms, meaning they can wear islamic clothes even if the job requires them not to in the name of religious freedom. This makes it easier to see this for what it is. 
    The ‘hijra’. A deliberate degree-by-degree raising of the amount of islamic adherence and getting the general public used to being subservient to the demands of the islamic fraction of the population.

    Obama 'Admin' Seeks Extra $1.4 Billion to Deal with Flood of Illegal Unaccompanied Children


    From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

    Obama 'Admin' Seeks Extra $1.4 Billion to Deal with Flood of Illegal Unaccompanied Children. HT:CNSNews.

    Pres. Obama is seeking an additional $1.4 billion to deal with the flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) into the U.S., a Congressional Research Service report reveals. 

    Obama's FY2015 budget did not originally seek an increase in UAC funding for government agencies - but, on May 30, the administration nearly tripled its UAC budget request for the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) by asking for an additional $1.4 billion: 

    In the President's FY2015 budget for the various agencies responsible for the UAC population (i.e., specifically in HHS/ORR and DHS budgets), there wasn't a request for funding increases to help address what has been characterized as a strain on agency resources.

    The FY2015 President's budget request for the HHS/ORR program was originally $868 million, which is the same amount that was appropriated in FY2014. However, on May 30, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget updated its cost projections related to the UAC crisis and requested a total of $2.28 billion for FY2015 for the UAC program in the Office of Refugee Resettlement. 

    In response, the Senate Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health, and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies, recommended $1.94 billion, which is $34 million less than the Administration's amended request - but, still more than $1 billion increase over FY2014 levels - in its FY2015 draft appropriations bill on June 10, 2014.Read the full story here.

    Judicial Watch Files Motion In Court Over “Lost” Lois Lerner/IRS Emails

    Koksuckinen

    Lois Lerner and her friends better start getting fitted for their Prison-order Chastity Belts.

    From The Washington Times:
    The government accountability group Judicial Watch filed a legal motion Friday that threatens to drag the Obama administration into federal court to answer questions about the lost emails of ex-IRS official Lois Learner and others implicated in the tea party targeting scandal. 
    Judicial Watch, which was at the forefront of exposing the targeting scandal, had filed a Freedom of Information Act request in May 2013 for emails of Ms. Lerner and other officials. But the IRS did not inform the group of the lost emails, even as it told the court that it was cooperating with the FOIA request. 
    “The IRS is clearly in full cover-up mode,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. 
    “It is well past time for the Obama administration to answer to a federal court about its cover-up and destruction of records.” 
    The new court action would require the IRS appear in court to explain its actions regarding the lost emails and answer questions about it. The IRS became aware of the lost emails in response to the Judicial Watch request but didn’t inform Congress until this month, according to Judicial Watch. 
    The lost emails from Ms. Lerner, who is the central figure in the tea party targeting scandal, has spurred cover-up accusations and conspiracy theory among lawmakers. 
    The IRS has insisted a hard-drive crash permanently erased two years of Ms. Lerner’s email, covering the time during the 2012 election cycle in which the tax agency targeted tea party and conservative groups for extra scrutiny for tax-exempt status.

    "WE’RE NOT JUST GOING TO SIT AROUND AND WAIT’ FOR CONGRESS TO WRITE LAWS”

    The new WH press secretary speaking on immigration.
    Signing laws created in congress IS THE JOB, sluggo. You are commander in chief of the armed forces, NOT LAW WRITER IN DEFAULT OF CONGRESS FULFILLING YOUR WISHES
    During an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the Obama administration was getting impatient with Congress.
    “[W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” he explained. “We’ve been waiting a year already. The president has tasked his Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson with reviewing what options are available to the president, what is at his disposal using his executive authority to try to address some of the problems that have been created by our broken immigration system.”
    Earnest added that, although Obama was exploring executive action, it was “not a substitute for robust Congressional action” on immigration reform.
    “That’s why we’re trying to focus on getting that done,” he concluded.
    Obama has been heavily criticized after his 2012 executive decision to defer the deportations of some young illegal immigrants, which critics argue was a key incentive for more children to cross the border illegally.
    Where are we headed with these executive actions?
    SCOTUS, you people listening in?
    If the executive, in the only office we all vote for overreaches, every one of us should have standing

    Was the government planning for an influx of illegal immigrants on the border?

    Sara Carter, senior Washington correspondent for TheBlaze, joined The Glenn Beck Program Monday night to talk to guest host Dana Loesch about the escalating crisis along the border. Recent reports have claimed that the Obama administration spent months preparing for a surge of illegals on the border. What did they know and how did they know it? Sara Carter went into detail on what her investigation has uncovered.

    From The Blaze:


    Dana: Last week, we learned that the federal government was looking for vendors to help escort illegal immigrant children this past January. Here is the exact text posted to fedbizops.gov. It says, “ICE is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport.” 
    It says also that “The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for noncriminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year.” 
    The ad goes on to say that “Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50%t via commercial air.” 
    So who is paying for this? Oh right, we are. We’re paying for escorts to ease the illegal immigrants’ illegal entry into our country while a Marine sergeant named Andrew Tahmooressi sits in the Tijuana prison. 
    Now, how exactly did the U.S. government know that 65,000 illegal immigrant children would be arriving across our border? Now, Texas Governor Rick Perry, he couldn’t take Washington’s inaction and the seeming coordination of this border violating effort, so he ordered up a border surge, authorizing the Texas Department of Public Safety to commence surge operations along the border. 
    It comes at a cost of $1.3 million per week, and it’s going to continue through the end of the year. Attorney General Greg Abbott has requested an additional $30 million in federal funding from the Department of Homeland Security’s Jeh Johnson because at the very least, the federal government could maybe kind of help pay to work a problem that they created, right? 
    The number of illegal immigrants crossing the border is staggering. Get this, border patrol caught 160,000 illegal immigrants crossing the border in the Rio Grande Valley in the first eight months of the fiscal year alone, right? 
    Health professionals have raised awareness and a lot of concerns asking a lot of questions about the transmission of disease because those crossing likely haven’t received the same immunizations that U.S. children have received. So why are these numbers increasing? 
    One report is that it’s due to amnesty rumors. Maybe it’s due to our lax reaction to the crime of illegal crossing. I mean, we’re loading illegal immigrants onto planes and buses and shipping them to other parts of the Southwest to sort of kind of like spread the flood. 
    There are stories of border patrol agents acting as surrogate parent instead of policing the border. Of everyone I spoke to who has been to the border who has worked with law enforcement in detaining immigrants as they illegally cross, there is one great absence. All of the people who claim that denying illegal entry into our country is a great evil, none of them are actually at the border helping with this humanitarian crisis. 
    I know of stories of church pastors in border towns who are sheltering kids to protect them from drug cartels and the elements. I see those; I don’t see the advocates of open borders and amnesty though. 
    I see them using the government to do their charity, and that’s pretty much the extent of it. I mean, does this look like charity to you? Does this look like charity? Are any of these people even down south to volunteer to process paperwork, care for the detained children? Are they there to help walk immigrants through the legal way to immigrate? No, instead they claim that a desire to observe law is cruel and unusual. 
    We love immigration in America, and we have every right to be discriminatory that we want the best of the best, the best laborers, the best business owners, the brightest students, but we don’t even require that. We just say can you come here legally? We’re not Ireland with their beyond restrictive immigration policy. We’re not even close to Mexico, whose immigration laws are more draconian than our own. We simply ask that people respect our sovereignty, respect our citizens, and follow the legal path of immigration the same as every other immigrant. 
    The open border policy and amnesty chaos, and make no mistake, that’s exactly what it is, it’s designed chaos to make policy happen fait accompli. Their anything-goes policy on immigration is actually hurting the people they claim to want to help, the immigrants crossing illegally. 
    Now, Sara Carter from our D.C. bureau joins us to delve into this issue. So Sara, first off, thanks so much for joining me. 
    Sara: Thanks Dana. 
    Dana: I was reading, as you just heard, talking about the fedbizops or whatever .gov, where ICE actually put on, it’s like a Craigslist ad basically asking for escorts. This was back in January. How on earth did they have such keen insight into what our needs would be at the border now, Sara? 
    Sara: Yeah, you know, Dana, I think a lot of people actually didn’t think this was true. I think they thought that when this showed up on Weasel Zippers, you know, on a website, that they thought this was a false ad. It was not. I contacted my sources at ICE official headquarters. Barbara Gonzalez confirmed that it was in fact an official RFI from ICE and that they were looking for these escorts. I dug a little deeper and found out that actually there were reports done as early as January 2013 predicting this surge. 
    The administration was well aware of the fact that there was something coming across the border. When you look all the way back to 2010, unaccompanied minors was a little over 5,000. Then we see a big jump in 2011, and now we’re expecting 90,000 unaccompanied minors this year. 
    I think what was surprising to a lot of people, now mind you, this is a DHS, these were DHS studies, U.S. intelligence studies last year that I was able to find out. They had conducted at least two in January and February, and then in October there was actually an official meeting with high-level DHS officials about this. And the only thing that they were really concerned about according to sources that I spoke with was bed space. They were not concerned at all with notifying the local communities about this increased surge that they were expecting. They were not concerned about notifying the appropriate authorities or putting any stopgap measures into stopping these folks from coming over. 
    And you mentioned a lot of the reasons and a lot of the potential harm that comes from this large immigrant surge coming from Central America into the United States. 
    GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
