ISIS Metastasized While the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups Have Penetrated the US Government Agencies

By Capt Joseph R. John, on April 25, 2016

Obama removed all US military forces from Iraq in 2011; he ignored the advice of his highly experienced US Army Generals, the US Ambassador to Iraqi, the CIA, and the outgoing National Security Council not to remove all US military forces Iraq, that the US should leave a sustaining force in Iraq to prevent Al Q’ieda from reconstituting its strength and to prevent Iran from filling in the void that would create.  Obama refused that expert advice from many experienced sources; as soon as the US Military Forces were pulled out by Obama, Iran filled the void, and effectively took control of Iraq (in light of Obama’s subsequently pivot toward Iran, creating that void, appears to have been a calculated move).  

The removal of all US military forces from Iraq resulted in the creation of ISIS which has metastasized in the last 5 years. While ISIS was gaining strength and conquering territory, Obama called ISIS “a JV team.”  That JV team, then established the Islamic State and a Caliphate which attracted 50,000+ committed Radical Islamic Terrorists from around the world. ISIS has been effectively given a safe haven in Iraq and Syria; the pin prick air strikes have had substantially no effect on ISIS aggression (most of the US aircraft return with their full complement of bombs, because the “Rules Of Engagement” prevent the pilots from striking their designated targets).   

As soon as Obama occupied the Oval Office, he was determined to empty 242 GITMO very dangerous detainees (82 detainees remain there today), and so Obama made it a policy not to capture terrorist leaders, from whom the military had previously obtained valuable current battlefield intelligence during their interrogations, instead the new policy became to just kill them, one at a time, with drone strikes.  Killing one ISIS leader at a time, has had little effect on ISIS operation, the next in line just takes on the leadership role; ISIS has grown stronger is are now operating in 70 countries, including the United States—over 100 ISIS strikes have been thwarted by the FBI.  

Killing Osama bin Laden had very little effect on Al Q’ieda, Al Zawahiri just took over, and Al Q’ieda has also grown much stronger.  Killing the Taliban leaders by drone strikes for 7 years has had little effect on their operations the next in line just takes over the leadership, the Taliban has also grown much stronger.  The occupant in the Oval Office doesn’t have a policy to defeat ISIS, Al Q’ieda, the Taliban, or Radical Islamic Terrorists---he is simply passing on the Radical Islamic Terrorist threat that has metastasized, into a much bigger global problem, to the new occupant of the Oval Office.  

ISIS perpetrated genocide against hundreds of thousands of Syrian and Assyrian Christians, conquered millions of acres of land, exported Radical Islamic Terrorism to 70 countries from its safe haven in Iraq, took control of Iraq’s oil fields, and generated $50 million/month in the oil sales of black market crude to finance its genocide against Christians.  Over the last 5 years, ISIS could have been substantially degraded with the support of America’s traditional Middle East Sunni allies and the Rules Of Engagement that were in place before Obama changed them. 

Unfortunately, Obama and Valerie Jarrett had the Obama administration shift the US 80 year Middle East alliances away from the US’ traditional Sunni allies, and pivoted to the Shite State of Iran (the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism). Hillary initiated, and Obama concluded the very dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, that has allowed Iran to develop nuclear weapons on a fast track and test Intercontinental ballistic missiles.  At the same time, Obama released $150 billion to Iran, with which Iran is using to fund worldwide terrorism and to fund the purchase Russian SA 300 anti-aircraft missiles to protect its nuclear weapons development facilities; those nuclear weapons will be used to threaten Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, the UAE, Morocco, NATO, and the US.

To understand the degree to which Obama has been disrespected by the US’s Traditional Sunni allies in the Middle East, on Obama’s recent visit to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the first time in 80 years, Obama was not met at the airport by any high ranking government official, mirroring exactly what Cuba did to Obama, when no one in the Cuban government met him at the airport on his arrival.

The FBI and US Intelligence Agencies have received warnings from Patriotic Muslims US Citizens, that there are Mosques in certain communities that have terrorist cells operating in them, and they are suspected of planning coordinated attacks------initially targeting “unprotected schools” and “fire departments” across the USA.  In Europe, because law enforcement agencies were warned of terrorist cells operating in Mosques that were plotting a series of well-coordinated attacks, the European National, and International Police Agencies, as well as their Intelligence Agencies, have imbedded Intelligent Agents in those Mosques to provide advance information on potential future terrorist attacks.  That same type of program, of imbedding Intelligence Agents in Mosques in New York City, was approved by Mayor Bloomberg and worked well while he was mayor.  However, when Mayor De Blasio was elected, he dismantled that very successful engagement program, designed to develop intelligence and aide law enforcement in preventing terrorist attacks.  It was dismantled because of the very vocal objections by Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups and because it wasn’t “Politically Correct”.  

 

The ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists have been able to outmaneuver law enforcement agencies, in their ability to execute lightning strikes like the surprise two strikes in Paris, the strike in San Bernardino, and recent strike in Brussels.  The law enforcement agencies had been taken by surprise, because of:

(1) the “Political Correctness” policies that prevented Law Enforcement from profiling Radical Islamic Terrorists, those policies frustrated proactive policies now being employed in Europe.

(2) those policies prevented the use of the term “Radical Islamic Terrorism”.

(3) those policies have prevented Law Enforcement from monitoring potential terrorist activities in specific Mosques reported on by Patriotic Muslims US Citizens

(4) the DOD, DHS, FBI, CIA, and Intelligence Agencies have been directed by the Obama administration to eliminate all historic information on Islamic Terrorism from all training documents and library reference books formerly available in the US Armed Forces, in Federal Intelligence Agencies, and in Federal Law Enforcement Agencies.  

 

Law Enforcement Agencies has not had the flexibility to move as fast as ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists can, because of ISIS’ sophisticated techniques utilization Social Media, their use of Internet chat rooms that the US has no access to, their use of encrypted Apple cell phones, and because of the use of throw-away, disposable cell phones.  None of the US Federal Intelligence or Law Enforcement Agencies are able to properly investigate or prolific employment of members of the Muslim Brotherhood front groups in many US Government Agency, because of the “Political Correct” policies imposed upon all government agencies, prohibition of any reference to Islam, and because many members of Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups are in key government leadership positons in the White House, DHS, State, the CIA, and DOD.  

 

Investigations by any intelligence agencies to uncover potential infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups into positions of leadership in sensitive US Government Agency, can’t be initiated without preapproval from Valerie Jarrett.  “Political Correctness” and the presence of members of the Muslim Brotherhood Front Group members employed in many level of management in the State Department, DOD, and DHS bureaucracy, has hamstrung the FBI in their inability to vet 915,000 Muslim refugees to determine if they have terrorist ties, and to determine where they are being resettled throughout the nation.

 

Over the last 7 years Obama has appointed, members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and MB Front Groups, to leadership positions throughout the Federal Government Bureaucracy:

(1) Obama’s primary Presidential Advisor is Valerie Jarrett (her college thesis stated she wanted to change the US to a Muslim friendly nation)

(2) The CIA Director John Brennan, a convert to Islam, took his oath of office on the US Constitution, not on a bible.  

(3) DHS Assistant Secretary for Policy Development, Arif Aikhan

(4) The Advisor to the Secretary of DHS Mohammed Elibiary

(5) The White House Advisor & Founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council Salam al-Marayati (he was removed from the National Commission on Terrorism after his defense of terrorist acts and the terrorists who carried out those terrorist acts)

(6) Obama’s Sharia Czar & Founder of the Islamic Society of North America Imam Mohamed Magid (whose Mosque trustee & officer homes were raided by federal law enforcement agents because of their funding of terrorists)

(7) The Obama Administration Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnership, Eboo Patel

(8) Secretary of State Clinton’s Primary Advisor & now her Presidential Campaign’s Primary Advisor Huma Abedin (whose mother & brother are actively involved in the outlawed MB in Egypt).  

Those Obama appointees have been operating, under the radar, appointing many MB and MB Front Group members to all levels of the bloated Federal Bureaucracy, in Law Enforcement Agencies, in Intelligence Agencies, in DHS, in the State Department, and in many other government Agencies-----they now fill more civil service positions in government agencies, than the Communist Party filled in the 1950s, when Communists tried to take over the US government.

 

A hopeful initiative has been developed by Patriotic Americans and Canadians citizens of the Muslim faith, who created, “The Muslim Reform Movement”.  The movement is led by a former Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy Medical Corps, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and an author/journalist, Tahir Gora, who are opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda and “Islam Extremism” and their program can be viewed by clicking on this link  http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/7009/muslim-reform-movement.  

 

Those very courageous Americans of the Muslim faith stand for equality of men & women, peace, democracy, human rights, and support for the US Constitution.  They raised their voices in opposition to religious persecution by ISIS of Christians, bigotry, and the politicization of Islam.  They state that every Muslim has the right to publically express criticism of Islamic policies that are against human rights, and they oppose the Muslim Brotherhood’s policy of “Violent Jihad”.  This peaceful Patriotic group of Americans of the Muslim faith and Canadians of the Muslim faith have invited fellow Muslims to take a stand with them, and join in their peaceful “Muslim Reform Movement,” but their organization been rejected by Obama and Valerie Jarrett---they receive no support by the Obama administration nor by Hillary Clinton.

How Obama's Refugee Immigration, and Gitmo Detainee Release Policies Continue to Undermine US National Security

By Capt Joseph R. John, on April 18, 2016 

National Security has never appeared to be a priority for the Obama.  The torrid pace of Muslim Illegal Aliens migration into the US over the last 7 years is downright alarming.  Obama has been bringing them in from 49 Muslim nations (including but not limited to Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran, Indonesia, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Libya, Morocco, Algeria, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, etc.).  The FBI has informed Obama that their backgrounds or identities cannot be verified to determine if they have terrorist ties, yet Obama continues continue to flood them into the United States with “reckless” disregard to the National Security of the United States.  By the end of the year, DHS will have issued 925,000 green cards to Muslim Refugees whose identities cannot be verified.  Obama has a very dangerous, 7 year pattern of admitting massive numbers of Muslim Refugees, despite the fact that ISIS has said they would be smuggling Radical Islamic Terrorists into the US with those refugees.     

 

At the same time, he opens the interior of the nation to the entry of Radical Islamic Terrorists, and he continues to “hollow out” the strength of the US Armed Forces, while especially decreasing the strength of the US Marine Corps.  According to the Associated Press reports, the 10,000 Muslim Syrian Refugees, the first group of 100,000 Muslim Refugees that Obama is intent on admitting in 2016, without having the FBI determine if they have terrorist ties, have already been processed and have been settled somewhere in Kansas City, Missouri (DHS refuses to provide local & federal law enforcement and elected state officials where they are being settled).  

 

The 925,000 Muslim Refugees from the Middle East have been given immediate access to state & federal welfare benefits, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, food stamps, and Medicaid (they are receiving much better medical benefits than Combat Veterans are receiving from the VA).  Obama’s plan to keep hundreds of thousands of Muslim Refugees flooding into the US long after he leaves office, has accomplished that by instituting the federal government’s “Family Reunification Program” by allowing the 925,000 Muslim Refugees to petition for their relatives to join them.  The US Immigration System may be looking at admitting 10 times the current number of  925,000 Muslim Refugees here.

 

According to Judicial Watch, Obama’s civilian appointees at DHS met covertly with a front groups of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) to discuss US National Security issues (the MB has been banned by Saudi Arabia, Syria, Bahrein, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Russia because it is an international terrorist organization).  The State Department sent a controversial, anti-America Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, to the Middle East to foster greater understanding and outreach among Muslim majority communities and support the continued flow of Muslim Refugees.  Obama also hired a Special Homeland Security Advisor, Mohamed Elibiary, who openly supports Radical Islamist Theologian and renowned Jihadist ideologue and a special Islam envoy that has been condemning U.S. prosecutions of Radical Islamic Terrorists as being “politically motivated persecutions” and they have close ties to Radical Islamic Terrorist Groups. (Judicial Watch 4/14/16)   

Obama caved in to the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), that was founded in 1994, in their demand to purge DOD, CIA, the FBI, and the National Security Council’s anti-terrorism material. Obama determined that material to be offensive to Muslims----it has purged.  Judicial Watch obtained hundreds of pages of FBI documents with details of the outrageous deal that Obama struck with CAIR.  Obama followed the demands of Islamic activists, when he suspended an FBI Internet Program aimed at preventing the radicalization of youth, because Muslim and Arab rights groups determined that it discriminates against Muslims and will lead to bullying.  After the San Bernardino terrorist attacks the Obama administration issued a national warning from the US Attorney General cautioning Americans not to initiate workplace discrimination “against individuals who are, or perceived to be, Muslim or of Middle Eastern.” The directive orders American businesses to accommodate the religious needs of Muslims and assure that they aren’t being harassed or intimidated. (Judicial Watch 4/14/16)

There are only about 5.7 million Jews living in America. The Muslim demographic is estimated at about 3 million but is growing much faster, due to Obama’s 7 year Muslim only immigration policy, and the high fertility rates of Muslim women.  To get a glimpse of their future, Jewish Americans only need to look across the Atlantic at Europe, where Muslim immigration has led to almost daily attacks on synagogues, Jewish cemeteries, Jewish schools, and other Jewish properties, not to mention the attacks on Jewish people, such as at the massacre at the kosher store in Paris on the day of the Charlie Hebdo attacks last year.  If Obama’s Muslim Immigration policy continues, it will lead to the U.S. Muslim population overtaking that of the U.S. Jewish population within two decades, said a demographic researcher at the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington.  Robert Spencer, author of the Jihad Watch blog at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, said four separate and independent studies since 1998 have found that 80 percent of mosques in the U.S. preach hatred of Jews and Christians and the need to ultimately impose Shariah Law and the elimination of US Federal Laws supported by the US Constitution.

Obama’s “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States is not limited to hollowing out the US Armed Forces and issuing nearly 1 million green cards to Muslim Illegal Aliens without determining if they have terrorist ties.  He also recently negotiated a Nuclear Weapons Agreement with Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, that is permitting Iran to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles that can strike the United States.  Obama’s major tilt in Middle East away from the carefully crafted Middle East policy by 12 US Presidents over the last 80 years, undermines the national security of the friendly Sunni governments in the Middle East.  Obama’s shift to ally himself with Iran has alienated Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, Turkey, Afghanistan, Qatar, Oman, Pakistan, Israel, and the Sunnis tribes in Iraq & Syria.  His dangerous Middle East foreign policy initiative has led to the establishment of the new 34-country Islamic Military Alliance, which excludes the US from the Alliance.  Obama’s new Middle East foreign policy now called the “Obama Doctrine” by Sunni states that mock him, is obviously stupid, in light of the fact that the US needs the support of its once long-time Sunni allies, if it ever hopes to defeat ISIS.  

Obama has also been repeatedly mocked by Iran by its refusal to sign the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Hillary initiated and “only” Obama signed.  After Obama was the only head of state to sign the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, Iran has:  
(1) has been testing intercontinental missiles in violation of UN prohibitions
(2) at a much faster pace, increased the development of nuclear weapons; the agreement was supposed to slow down nuclear weapons development 
(3) humiliated Obama in the capture of two US Navy Patrol Boats forcing US Sailors down to their knees with guns to their heads
(4) continued to ship tons of arms to Houthi rebels in Yemen to overthrow the elected government leading a terrorist war
(5) fired missiles in the vicinity of the USS Harry Truman (CVN-75)
(6) Iran establishment a Terrorist Training Camps in Cuba operated by Iran’s Hezbollah Terrorists while supporting Mexican drug cartels
(7) employed the Iranian Quds Force to undermine the government of Bahrain
(8) engineered the complete the takeover of the Iraqi government using Iranian Mullahs
(9) continued support for Assad in Syria with the thousands of Quds Force Battalions, while killing Syrian freedom fighters trained by the US
(10) armed the Taliban with Iranian manufactured sophisticated IEDs that have been maiming and killing thousands of US military personnel
(11) used the $150 billion Obama gave Iran, even though Iran didn’t sign the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, to acquire Russian S-300 long range Sam missiles to protect the nuclear weapons development sites from Israeli strikes. 

According to Secretary of State Kerry, some of the funds Iran received from the Obama administration is 
being used to recruit, train, and arm their Radical Islamic Terrorists.

Obama continued to demonstrate his “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States when he established diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba’s Police State, where Iran’s Terrorist Front Group, Hezbollah, had been operating a Terrorist Training camp for over 2 years.  Obama falsely certified to Congress, as required by US Federal Law, that he could remove Cuba from the US State Department list of “Nations That Sponsor Terrorism”, because they were no longer a terrorist threat to the US. With the knowledge there were terrorist training camps in Cuba, Obama negotiated new airline transportation routes between the US and Cuba, which will permit Muslim Refugees who were sympathetic to ISIS, and were previously admitted as US citizens through Obama’s “Fast Track US Citizenship Program”, to fly to Communist Cuba; they will no longer have to fly to the Middle East to be trained to kill Americans, now they can easily fly to Communist Cuba (according to the FBI, to date over 300 Muslim Refugees with new US citizenship & US passports, who were never vetted by the FBI for terrorist ties, have traveled to the Middle East to train and participate in the genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians).

Obama and his appointees at the DHS have demonstrated their “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States by ignoring James Comey's (FBI Director), and Michael Steinbach's (FBI's Assistant Director, Counterterrorism Division) warnings when they testified before Congress that it was very dangerous to the National Security of the United States to continue to allow Syrian Muslim Illegal Aliens to be given Refugees status without vetting them to determine if they have terrorist ties. Especially in light of the fact that ISIS is now forging thousands of passports, and has said they will be infiltrating ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists into the United States through the Syrian Muslim Refugees Program.  There is absolutely no reliable databases to check and no capacity to conduct field investigations inside Syria to verify the backgrounds of Middle East Muslim Illegal Aliens entering the United States.

Obama’s repeated attempts over the last 7 years to close the Detention Facility at the US Naval Base in Guantanamo, Cuba (GITMO) by releasing 151 of the Radical Islamic Terrorists knowing full well a certain percentage will return to the battlefield, to undermines the conflict with Radical Islamic Terrorists, is further proof of Obama’s “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States.  For the last 7 years, Obama’s refusal to allow US military personnel in Afghanistan to capture Radical Islamic Terrorists for interrogation in GITMO, was a major change in the previous capture & detain policy in Afghanistan.  The previous capture & detain policy was to capture, interrogate, and screen very dangerous terrorists leaders in Afghanistan for transfer to GITMO, for extended interrogation.  Obama’s drawdown of military personnel policy in Afghanistan, has resulted in the closure of the US Military Detention Facility near the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan at the end of 2014.  When coupled with Obama’s prevention of the transfer of any Taliban Terrorist prisoners to GITMO, has effectively eliminated the ability of the US Armed Forces’ to detain suspected Taliban Terrorists captured on the battlefield, under the “Authorization for Use of Military Force.”  Under Obama administration policies, Taliban Terrorist captured on the battlefield (in Afghanistan) are now being transferred to foreign custody.  Obama’s capture & detain policy for Afghanistan demonstrate his “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States.

The Pentagon has reported that 116 GITMO Detainees have already returned to the battlefield.   When Obama came to office, there were 242 Detainees in GITMO (they were termed too dangerous to be released); 160 of those terrorist who were termed too dangerous to be released, have in fact been released  by Obama, 82 remain in the GITMO detention facility today----they are all much too dangerous to be released.  The Obama administration has stated that 10% of the released Radical Islamic Terrorists who were GITMO detainees returned to the battle field, but the numbers the Pentagon has released is 15%.  However, the percentage is probably much higher, but accurate data is hard to develop since the terrorists changed their “nom de guerre” and IDs once they are released from GITMO.   Just on Sunday, April 17th, nine very dangerous GITMO detainees were transferred to the custody of unnamed countries.    

Obama’s Sanctuary City Policy further demonstrate his “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States. Over the last 7 ½ years, Obama has presided over the creation of 300+ safe harbors, “Sanctuary Cities,” counties, and states that violate Federal Immigrations Laws, where Middle East Muslim Refugees, who have not been vetted by the FBI for terrorist ties, Illegal Aliens, and Radical Islamic Terrorists, who entered the US across the wide open southern border now reside.  A “Sanctuary City” is a jurisdiction that forbids its local law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal law enforcement officers and federal officials to apprehend convicted criminal Illegal Aliens and suspected Radical Islamic Terrorists, even when local law enforcement wish to do so.  Obama's refusal to eliminate “Sanctuary Cities” have created a serious danger to the lives of all American citizens.   The Democrats in the US Senate continue to block every attempt to defund “Sanctuary Cities” from federal programs; these blocking maneuvers are led by Obama.  As a result of those blocking maneuvers, thousands of American citizens are victimized and many are also killed each year by Mexican Illegal Aliens and suspected Radical Islamic Terrorists using Obama’s “Sanctuary Cities” as their safe havens, those cities allows them to plan and execute attacks on Americans. 

Over the last 7 years, 165,900 convicted Mexican felons, and 706,950 detained illegal aliens who had violated Federal Immigration Laws have been released into the general population by Obama, instead of sending them back to Mexico.  That flagrant act further demonstrates demonstrate Obama’s “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States and the safety of the American people.   Among the 165,900 Mexican convicted criminals Illegal Aliens, released into the general population, were 193 Illegal Aliens convicted of homicides, 303 Illegal Aliens convicted of kidnapping, 426 Illegal Alien registered sex offenders, 164,978 Illegal Aliens convicted of pedophilia, drug smuggling, white slavery, violent assaults, weapons violations, child molestation, robbery, burglary, car-jackings, rapes, etc.  All those Mexican felons find safe havens from apprehension from law enforcement by residing in “Sanctuary Cities.”  Records are difficult to obtain, but we have learned from US Senator Toomey (R-PA), that during an 8-month period in 2014, sanctuary jurisdictions released over 8,000 Illegal Aliens, and 1,800 of them were later arrested for criminal acts. 

Obama continues to demonstrate his “reckless” disregard for the National Security of the United States when  he created the blueprint for the wide-open southern border catastrophe. Over the last 7 years, that wide open southern border has resulted in the entry of suspected Radical Islamic Terrorists, and millions of Illegal Aliens from Mexico, Cuba, the Middle East, and Central America.  Americans are seeing in Europe what is destined to occur in the United States unless a wall is built across the southern border.  In violation of US Federal Immigration Laws, the Obama administration refuses to quarantine the hundreds of thousands of Central American children flooding across the wide open southern border.   The massive influx of Illegal Alien children from Central America, have not being medically screened, then quarantined as required by US Federal Immigration Laws. That flagrant violation of US Federal Immigration Law imposing medical quarantines has resulted in outbreaks of numerous illnesses that were once eradicated in the US.  

Dangerous strains of Flu, Scalia, TB, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Smallpox, Leprosy, and even Malaria outbreaks have been covered up by the Obama administration.  Every day, while the Obama administration continues to violate Federal Immigration Quarantine Laws, infectious diseases will continue to spread in the general US population and children who are required to go to grammar schools along with thousands of Illegal Alien children from Central America will be infected.  Most recently, mosquitos carrying the Zika virus, have been brought into the US on the clothing of Central American children, spreading the dangerous Zika epidemic northward into the US from the border states (instead of the Obama administration asking the Congress for $2 billion to deal with the Zika virus, they should follow US Federal Immigration Law and quarantine hundreds of thousands of Central American children flooding across the wide open southern border into the US).

The US Border Patrol has been reporting the increased apprehension of exotic Illegal Aliens, a term used  by the US Border Patrol to describe Illegal Aliens from the Middle East countries like Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Sudan.  The Obama and the Democrat Party profess that the southern borders are secure, and they continue to aggressively oppose every initiative to build a secure wall across the wide open southern border.  The Washington Times reported that Lieutenant General Kenneth Tovo in testimony before the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs of the 114th Congress, stated that the Iran’s Lebanese Terrorist front group, Hezbollah, that operates a terrorist training camp in Cuba, is working very closely with Mexican drug cartels to bring trained terrorists into the United States.  Shiite terror groups have partnered with Mexican drug cartels to fund their terror campaigns and weapons purchases. Though this has been going on for years, the newest development is that Obama has reinstated the Illegal Alien “catch-and-release” program; Illegal Aliens are being released at the border with no detention or orders to report to an Immigration Court to determine their eligibility to remain in the US.  

We encourage you to read the below listed Article by SSA Michael Cutler (INS) (Ret) on how Obama has been undermining the National Security of the United States for the last 7 ½ years by continuing to impose his “reckless” and very dangerous Muslim Refugee and Immigration policy on the citizens of the United States, in violation of US Federal Immigration Laws.  We continue to wonder if Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell with do anything about the Obama’s force feeding the steady flow of Middle East Muslim Refugees, in which we now know ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists are being imbedded, as they enter the United States.  Obama’s reckless Muslim Refugee and Immigration policies will continue to cost American lives in the US, like the 76 Radical Islamic Terrorist strikes in the US have cost hundreds lives in the past.

HOW OBAMA'S REFUGEE POLICIES UNDERMINE NATIONAL SECURITY
The administration orders “shields down” in the wake of a succession of deadly terror attacks.
April 15, 2016 
Michael Cutler

The issue of the admission of Syrian refugees into the United States has understandably ignited a firestorm of protest by Americans concerned about their safety and the safety of their families. These Americans are not exhibiting "xenophobia," the usual claim made by the open borders immigration anarchists. They have simply been paying attention to what James Comey, the Director of the FBI, and Michael Steinbach, the FBI's Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division, have stated when they testified before congressional hearings about the Syrian refugee crisis. They made it clear that these refugees cannot be vetted. There are no reliable databases to check and no capacity to conduct field investigations inside Syria to verify the backgrounds of these aliens.

I focused on these issues in my October 7, 2015 article for FrontPage Magazine, “Syrian 'Refugees' and Immigration Roulette: How the government is recklessly playing with American lives.”

Further reports have provided disturbing information that ISIS operatives have seized blank Syrian passports and other identity documents, along with the printing devices used to prepare passports and other ID, and have sold these documents to reporters in false names. These identity documents are indistinguishable from bona fide documents because they are bona fide documents -- except that the photos and biometrics do not relate to the original person but create credible false aliases for anyone willing to pay for them.

The challenges our officials face in attempting to vet refugees and others was the focus of my September 15, 2015 article for FrontPage Magazine, “The Refugee Crisis Must Not Undermine U.S. National Security: America's enemies cannot be permitted to turn our compassion into a weapon against us.”

These multiple challenges, where failures may well cost American lives and undermine national security, are well known to the administration, yet the administration defiantly continues to press for the admission of thousands of Syrian refugees. Meanwhile, the administration ignores a commonsense solution to the refugee crisis that would be far more cost effective and not undermine U.S. national security or pose a threat to public safety: The simple establishment of safe zones in the Middle East for these refugees. This is a proposal made by a number of our true leaders, including Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

In an unsuccessful attempt to assuage the fears of Americans about the vetting process, the administration claimed that the screening process was thorough, noting that the vetting process for Syrian refugees was a lengthy process that took from 18 months to two years. (Of course without reliable databases or the ability to conduct field investigations in Syria, no length of time would be adequate.)

The situation in Syria and the growing threats posed by ISIS was the subject of an April 12, 2016 hearing conducted by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the topic, “The Spread of ISIS and Transnational Terrorism.” While it should be obvious, I want you to bear in mind the term “Transnational Terrorism.” This refers to terrorists traveling across international borders to prepare for terror attacks. The movement of people across international borders is the domain of our immigration system, which has arguably become one of the most dysfunctional of all of our government's systems.

The multitude of failures of the immigration system can be traced to the failures of a succession of administrations from both political parties going back decades -- but no administration has done more to hobble efforts to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws than the current administration. Yet Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and other politicians refuse to accept the fundamental fact that our nation's borders, including our 328 ports of entry, provide far too easy access to transnational criminals and terrorists who either enter without inspection or manage to enter via the inspections process and disappear into the “woodwork.”

Legalizing illegal aliens whose identities cannot be verified is no less dangerous than providing refugee status to refugees who cannot be vetted.

That was the point to my self-explanatory November 24, 2016 FrontPage Magazine article, “Entry Without Inspection = Entry Without Vetting: The dire threat to our national security and public safety.”

Now the administration, with the support of many politicians (mostly Democrats), is doing the unthinkable: running the already fatally flawed vetting process at warp speed. This is unconscionable and beyond any rational justification.

The administration has made this outrageous decision despite the fact that there is no reliable way to vet these refugees and even in the wake of the recent deadly attacks in San Bernardino, California, France and Belgium. These attacks have justifiably added to the concerns of all Americans about the threats posed to our nation by ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

While we have been told that the vetting of travelers at airports would likely take longer so that the TSA can more carefully screen passengers following of the terror attack in Belgium, the administration simultaneously announced that not only would the plans to admit Syrian refugees proceed, but that because of the “surge” of those refugees, the screening process will be slashed from two years to just three months.

On April 6, 2016 NBC News reported, “First Syrian Family in 'Surge' Resettlement Program Departs for Kansas City.”

Here is an excerpt from the NBC News report:

A resettlement surge center opened in Amman in February to meet President Barack Obama's target of resettling 10,000 Syrians to the United States by Sep. 30. Every day, the center interviews some 600 Syrian refugees. 

The temporary processing center for the surge operation will run until April 28, U.S. Ambassador to Jordan Alice Wells said. She traveled to the airport to greet the al-Abbouds before their departure. 

The regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. embassy in Amman, Gina Kassem, said that while the 10,000 target applies to Syrian refugees living around the world, the majority will be resettled from Jordan. 

"The 10,000 is a floor and not a ceiling, and it is possible to increase the number," she told reporters, according to the AP. 

While the resettlement process usually takes 18 to 24 months, under the surge operation this will be reduced to three months, Kassem said. 

It is worth noting that once again the term of choice by the administration is “surge.” We have witnessed “surges” of what were described as unaccompanied minors along the U.S./Mexican border that overwhelmed the Border Patrol and caused the understaffed immigration courts to overflow with the human tsunami of that surge.

As a consequence, the immigration courts were compelled to put hearings on hold for aliens facing deportation (removal) from the United States. Often these aliens had been convicted of committing serious crimes that predicated that decision to seek their removal from the United States. Because of a lack of detention space and other such factors, most of these aliens were simply released back into the communities where they committed still more crimes -- usually, ironically, victimizing members of the various ethnic immigrant communities around the United States.

Now we have a “refugee surge” that the administration is eagerly exploiting, claiming that the only way to deal with overwhelming numbers of such refugees is to take the two-year process and slice it down to just 90 days. Furthermore, the report noted that the 10,000 refugees heading to the United States is the smallest number of refugees that we can anticipate will be admitted into the United States, while apparently there is no limit as to what the ultimate number of refugees could be. As noted above, Ms. Kassem, the regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. Embassy at Amman Jordan, was quoted as having said, "The 10,000 is a floor and not a ceiling, and it is possible to increase the number."

Perhaps Ms. Kassem should issue another statement: “Damn the terrorists -- full speed ahead!”

As insane and reprehensible as this is on the federal level, we must also consider the issue of “sanctuary cities,” which involves local government. These municipalities provide shielding to aliens who have trespassed on our nation or otherwise violated the immigration laws that were enacted to achieve the fundamental and entirely reasonable goals of protecting national security, the lives of innocent people and the jobs of American workers -- and in a particularly perilous era.

I have written about this madness and also testified before congressional hearings about the lunacy of sanctuary cities. In point of fact, on February 27, 2003 I testified before the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims on the topic, “New York City's 'Sanctuary Policy' and the Effect of Such Policies on Public Safety, Law Enforcement, and Immigration.”

For those politicians who cannot understand the anger of the citizenry of the United States, they would do well to look in the mirror to see who our adversaries are.

It is time for these politicians to get the memo: you are either with us or you are against us.
 

After Kissing The Venomous Communist Cuban Snake, Much To Obama's Surprise, He Got "Bit"

 By Capt Joseph R. John, on April 4, 2016

The mass genocide in Cuba when Castro came to power, resulted in the murderous stone cold Communist Executioner, Che Guevara, brutal summary execution of hundreds of thousands freedom loving Cubans before firing squads, Che’s mass executions were similar to those Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, and Mao perpetrated when they came to power.  Che was a murderous thug and stone cold brutal killer of any opposition to the new Cuban Communist Dictatorship.  President Eisenhower, immediately suspended recognition of Cuba and recalled the US Ambassador, because of the mass murderous execution of respected Cubans.  Obama stood in front a large mural of the murderous blood cold Communist Executioner, Che Guevara, in order to have his picture taken for the world to see, with him standing proudly beside the Cuban Communist Dictator, Raoul Castro.  There couldn't be a better example of Obama's true loyalty to a bloody murderous Communism Revolutionary Marxists Stone Cold Executioner Thug, and for his enormous support for the oppressive Communist Police State of Cuba. 

Two years after Iran’s terrorist front group, Hezbollah, established a terrorist training camp in Castro’s Communist Cuba, Castro began training & exporting FARC terrorists to Columbia to destabilize the elected government of Columbia, and regularly exported Radical Islamic Terrorists to the US, and the rest of the Western Hemisphere.  Obama lied in his campaign to re-establish US normalized relations with Cuba in order to prop up the Communist Dictator nation in the world community of nations.  He did that in overdrive in 2014, when he realized Cuba desperately needed US financial support, because Marxists Socialist Venezuela was on the brink of financial collapse and could no longer fund Castro’s brutal Communist Cuban Dictatorship, wherein the monthly income for an average Cuban sank to $24/month.

 

Obama falsely certified to Congress, as required by US Federal Law, that he could remove Cuba from the US State Department list of “Nations That Sponsor Terrorism” (just as Obama ignored the fact that Iran is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, when he somehow convinced the Republican leaders in Congress to pass the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, so it wouldn’t have to be voted on in the US Senate as an International Treaty).  In his campaign to mainstream Communist Cuba, Obama knew full well that Communist Cuba was allowing Hezbollah to train Radical Islamic Terrorists on Cuban soil, and had been exporting terrorism throughout the Western Hemisphere.  

 

That did not prevent Obama from lying to Congress and to the American people, when he said he could safely remove Cuba from the US State Department’s list of “Nations That Terror Sponsor Terrorism”, in order to establish diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba.  Over the last 57 years, 10 US Presidents refused to normalize relations with Castro’s Communist Cuba, because Communist Cuba never ceased exporting terrorism and Communism throughout North and South America to destabilize legally elected governments.   

 

After removal of Communist Cuba from the US State Department’s list of “Nations That Sponsor Terrorism”, Obama established a Bilateral Commission to determine how the U.S. could promote “normalization” and develop agreements to share “science,” mail,  airline flights, and even law enforcement.  The Republican leadership in Congress did absolutely nothing to stop the charade, because Castro continued to export terrorism.  Congress could have used the power of the purse to refuse to fund the new US Embassy in Cuba, and fund Obama’s plans to treat Cubans entering the US through the wide open southern border, as refugees who wouldn’t be vetted by the FBI to determine if they had terrorist ties.

 

The FBI informed Congress that 250+ newly admitted Muslim Refugees who were admitted as US Citizens through “Obama’s Fast Track Refugee Citizenship Program”, had previously flown to the Middle East and Africa to train with ISIS and participate in the genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians.  Those newly admitted Muslim Refugees, who were sympathetic with ISIS, would no longer have to fly to the Middle East to be trained as Radical Islamic Terrorist with the capability to attack Americans on US soil, now they only have to fly to Cuba to be trained as radical Islamic Terrorists by Hezbollah, on Cuban soil, after Obama established round trip airline routes between Cuba and the US.

There was another problem that Obama had to deal with, in order to establish normal relations with Castro’s Communist Cuba; to cover up the torture of 17 US Military Vietnam POWs on Cuban soil by Castro.  It has taken a lawsuit to pry out of the Obama administration details about American Vietnam "Prisoners Of War" who “ had been held captive by the Castro’s Communist Cuban government or its military forces” in Cuba.   The lawsuit by Judicial Watch sought records “depicting the names, service branch, ranks, Military Occupational Specialty, and dates and locations of the capture of all American servicemen believed to have been held captive by Cuban government or military forces on the island of Cuba since 1960.” 

“The fact that we had to sue the Obama Administration to get simple answers as to whether Cuba held and tortured American Vietnam POWs strongly suggests that a cover-up has been underway by Obama,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “The Obama Administration admires Castro’s Cuba so much that even the fate of American Vietnam POWs, is of little concern.” 

The suit cites the government’s refusal to comply with a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) on the subject.  The action explains Judicial Watch submitted the FOIA request on June 1, 2015, but the Department of State “has failed to: 

  (1) Produce the requested records or demonstrate that the requested records are lawfully exempt from production; 

  (2) Notify plaintiff of the scope of any responsive records defendant intends to produce or withhold and the reasons for any withholding; or 

  (3) Inform plaintiff that it may appeal any adequately specific, adverse determination.”

The civilian appointees of the Obama administration in the Department of Defense initially claimed to have no records, but in a recent commentary on Accuracy in Media, John Lowery reported about “17 American airmen captured in North Vietnam and then taken to Cuba for medical experiments in torture techniques.” Obama was fearful that the revelations of those facts would derail his carefully developed plans to recognize Communist Cuba—again the Republican Leaders in Congress did nothing to alert the American people to Obama’s cover up of Castro’s Communist Cuba’s torture of US Military POWs.

“Following his release [during Operation Homecoming] Major Jack Bomar, (a POW camp Zoo survivor), described the brutal beating of Captain Earl G. Cobeil, an F-105F electronics warfare officer, by Cuban Major Fernando Vecino Alegret, known by the Vietnam POWs as ‘Fidel,'” the report said. “Regarding Captain Cobeil, Bomar related, ‘he was completely catatonic … His body was ripped and torn everywhere … Hell cuffs appeared almost to have severed his wrists … Slivers of bamboo were imbedded [sic] in his bloodied shins, he was bleeding from everywhere.'” 

Lowery reported: “Much less is known about our 17 captured US airmen taken to Cuba for ‘experimentation in torture techniques.’ They were held in Havana’s Los Maristas, a secret Cuban prison run by Castro’s G-2 Intelligent service. A few were held in the Mazorra (psychiatric) Hospital and served as human guinea pigs used to develop improved methods of extracting information through ‘torture and using drugs.’ 

“If our honor code of ‘Duty, Honor, Country,’ and our national policy of “Leave No Man Left Behind,” are more than meaningless slogans, then before our relations with Cuba were normalized, by Obama, their murderous leadership should have accounted for our 17 US Military Vietnam POWs.” “Leave No Man Left Behind” was also ignored by Obama in “The Battle of Benghazi” where the courageous initiative of two Navy SEALS’ actions saved the lives of 32 Americans, ensuring that they could go home, but they unnecessarily lost their lives, because Obama refused to authorize “Cross Border Authority” in order to allow a combat strike.  There was a squadron armed F-16Cs, with 500 rounds of 20 mm cannon ammo on each aircraft, less than 40 minutes away, in in Aviona, Italy ( 377 miles away), and a fully armed AC-130-H Spectre Gunship manned and ready on the tarmac in Sigonella, Sicily 45 minutes away (420 miles away), that could have been launched to save their lives. 

Judicial Watch noted that U.S. Navy F-4 pilot Lt. Clemmie McKinney’s plane was shot down in 1972 and he was held at a Cuban compound in North Vietnam. “The Department of Defense reportedly said he was killed in the crash, but a CIA document later published included a picture of McKinney standing next to Fidel Castro,” it reported.  Lowery wrote that when McKinney’s remains were returned in 1985, a forensic anthropologist confirmed he died not before 1975 and probably several years later.  In 1999, former POW Mike Benge told Congress, “I have also uncovered evidence of the possibility that American POWs from the Vietnam War have been held in Los Maristas, a secret Cuban prison.”

For 2 years, the Congress stood by and did “absolutely nothing” to stop Obama, when it could have cut off financial support to fund Cuban refugees, and pay for the construction of the new American Embassy in Cuba.  On July 1, 2015, Obama sent letter to Cuban Communist Dictator Raul Castro, that the US would re-establishing diplomatic recognition.  On  March 20, 2016, Presidential One landed in Havana with Obama aboard---there was absolutely “no one” to meet Obama from the Cuban Communist Government---it was the first time in US history that the leader of the United States was snubbed at an official airport arrival.  That venomous “Communist Cuban Snake” was let loose on the American people by Obama.   

Raul Castro working with Obama allowed thousands of Communist Cubans to flood across the wide open southern border.  Those Communist Cubans, flooding across the wide open southern border, have been classified by Obama appointees at DHS as Cuban Refugees, they are not being vetted by the FBI to determine if they have terrorist ties with Communist Cuba, and as designated refugees will receive hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to house, feed, and provide medical benefits for them.  They are simply entering the United States by walking across the wide open southern border, and will be treated just as the 925,000 Middle East Muslim Refugees, who are receiving billions dollars annually from taxpayer funds.  

As a major terror attack engulfed Brussels that killed 31 innocent civilians, including 4 Americans, and wounded 340, Obama made a 2 minute comment about it before he launched into a press briefing in Havana, then Obama stood in front a large mural of the murderous blood cold Communist Executioner, Che Guevara, in order to have his picture taken for the world to see, with him standing proudly beside the Cuban Communist Dictator, Raoul Castro.  Then he did the “wave” with the Cuban Communist Dictator at a baseball game later that afternoon, effectively ignoring the murderous Radical Islamic Terrorist attack in Brussels. 

It was all good, a historic legacy for Obama until the rattling from the attic from Cuba’s out-to-pasture Communist Maximo Leader, Fidel Castro, who loudly put a stop to the festivities.  Castro blasted Obama for his “syrupy” words and then Fidel Castro made a lunatic’s effort to relive Cuba’s Communist glory days of fighting Uncle Sam. 

It wouldn’t support the theory by the left of center liberal media establishment, that there’s a rift between Fidel, who remains the ever the brittle revolutionary, desperate to preserve his own legacy of defying Uncle Sam, and his brother Raul, who saw Obama as a “Useful Fool”, well-suited for squeezing US taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars in US benefits, while offering Obama “absolutely nothing” in return.

After a devious Obama lied repeatedly, and misled Congress and the American people that Cuba was no longer exporting terrorism to the United States, in order to normalize relations with Castro’s Communist Cuba----he kissed the venomous “Communist Cuban Snake” that killed hundreds of thousands of Cubans in the Communist Revolution.  Then Fidel Castro, much to Obama’s surprise, turned around and had that venomous “Communist Cuban Snake” bite him, and the American people, by rejecting Obama’s initiative to normalize relations with Cuba, and brought Obama’s Havana festivities to an abrupt halt!!!   

So much for Obama’s successful international foreign relations over the last 7 years, with Communist Cuba, the Radical Islamic Terrorist State of Iran, the Radical Islamic State of Libya, Iran’s Client Shite State of Iraq, Assad’s Syria State, Communist China, Communist North Korea, Communist Vietnam, Socialist Venezuela, the Radical Islamic State of Yemen, the Radical Islamic State of Sudan, Crimea, Ukraine, Israel, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia,  Egypt, and Mexico.  Kind of makes one proud, doesn’t it?

After Kissing The Cuban Snake, Much To His Surprise, Obama Gets Bit  

MONICA SHOWALTER

It was all so choreographed. President Obama’s “historic” trip to Cuba was prepped and re-prepped so that nothing would go off with a glitch. Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes jetted into Havana for the preparations; and, depending on the news report, Secretary of State John Kerry might have made an appearance there, too.

President Obama spouted his treacly niceties, drew his moral equivalences and blended it all out with a sea of banalities about “the future” in a not-so-disguised effort to create his own Nixon In China legacy thing. Never mind that dissidents were being beaten by Cuban security organs and that “President” Raul Castro offered no concessions toward human rights. 

Obama’s was laser-focused on sending the message of “fun” for the trip. As a major terror attack engulfed Brussels, Obama did the “wave” with the Cuban dictator.

It was all good, historic legacy fun until the rattling from the attic from Cuba’s out-to-pasture Maximo Leader, Fidel Castro, loudly put a stop to the festivities. 

Castro blasted Obama for his “syrupy” words and made a lunatic’s effort to relive the Communist glory days of fighting Uncle Sam. It would support the theory that there’s a rift between Fidel, who remains ever the brittle revolutionary desperate to preserve his own legacy of defying Uncle Sam, and brother Raul, who sees Obama as a “Useful Fool”, well suited for squeezing out U.S. benefits while offering “nothing” in return.

Hard to say which one is worse. 

What’s clear enough is that deference after deference to the Castro brothers and their legacy, the Castros continue to show nothing but contempt. Kiss a snake, and don’t be surprised if you get bit. 

 

Muslim Brotherhood Increases Muslim Refugees in US to 900,000; Promoting Violent Anti-US "Black Lives Matter" Demos

By Capt Joseph R. John, on March 28, 2016

 

Massive immigration without assimilation is an invasion!!!!!!

 

The below listed article explains that from 2009 through 2013, the US issued 680,000 long-term residency visas or green cards to the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program.  From 2014 through 2015 Obama brought in and resettled throughout the US 75,000 Muslim Middle East & African Refugees/year, increasing the number of Muslim refugees to 830,000, and when the 85,000 Muslim Refugees that are being admitted in 2016, the number of Muslim refugees brought in by Obama will reach 915,000; Obama has been doing the bidding of the Muslim Brotherhood and their Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups in the United States.  The United Arab Emirates banned the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Muslim Student Association (MSA), and other Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups because it promotes, incites, and finances terrorism.  The MB overthrew the legally elected government of Egypt, violently cracked down on its opposition, perpetrated brutal genocide on all Christians in Egypt, and then overthrew the government of Libya with Hillary & Obama’s help.  Saudi Arabia, Syria, Bahrein, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Russia have all designated the MB as an international terrorist organization and banned it from their countries.  For 7 years, the 915,000 Muslim Refugees have been admitted by Obama, even though the FBI repeatedly warned Obama and Congress that they have been prevented from vetting them to determine if they have terrorist ties (Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority McConnell funded the continued resettlement of un-vetted Muslim Refugees, even though the FBI and a majority of American citizens oppose it).  It was reported by the US Immigration Service that only 483 of the 915,000 Middle East Refugees were Christians.  

 

It is estimated that Middle East Illegal Immigrants entering through the wide open southern border average about 1500/year, and will total about 12,000 by 2016, those numbers will increase the number of Middle East and African Muslims to 927,000 who will have entered the US, during the 7 ½ years Obama has occupied the Oval Office---“none of them” have been vetted to determine if they have terrorist ties.  The Muslim Brotherhood and their terrorist Front Groups have opposed closing the wide open southern border for the last 7 ½ years---Obama is compliant.  The US Border Patrol Union Chief, Agent Brandon Judd, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s Subcommittee On National Security, that the number of arrests of Illegal Aliens from Afghanistan and Pakistan made at the wide open southern border is up significantly in 2016, from 2015.  To support that claim, Agent Judd pointed to the following statistics; in all of fiscal year 2015, the Border Patrol arrested 5 Afghans and 57 Pakistani entrants.  “Already in the “first five months” of the 2016 fiscal year, “the Border Patrol has arrested 18 Afghans and 79 Pakistani entrants”; it is understood that only one in four entrants are interdicted at the wide open southern border (so the estimated number of Afghans and Pakistanis who entered the US in 5 months of 2016 will probably approach 388; the estimated number in 12 months will approach 1000---many of them probably have terrorist ties).

 

For 7 ½ years, control and pre-screening of Muslim Refugees for US resettlement has been entrusted by the Obama administration to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) (which is controlled by Muslim UN Member Nations and who are sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals of installing Sharia Law in the US).  Although for 7 years, the FBI warned Congress there was no way to screen the Muslim Refugees entering the US through the UN Resettlement Program, to determine if they had terrorist ties.  Yet the Republican leaders in Congress will have funded the resettlement of over 900,000 Muslim Refugees for 7 years.  The UNHCR has only been delivering Muslim Refugees for US resettlement, and refused to process Christian refugees to enter the US.  The Catholic Greek Relief Agency reported that 300,000 Middle East Christians who fled ISIS genocide, have been excluded from resettlement in the US by the Obama administration. 

“The Obama administration has provided substantial funding to that agency (UNHCR)," said Larry Bartlett of the US State Department.  The United States has donated $4.5 billion to UNHCR since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011.  The Obama administration has been more generously financing the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, and has contributed more funding than any other nation in the world, despite the fact that it has been consistently excluding Christian fleeing ISIS genocide from entering the US.  The Republican leaders continued to use US billions of dollars of taxpayer funds to finance the bigoted UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program that discriminates against Christians.  The Obama administration has been bringing in more Muslim Refugees into the US, than all the other countries in the world combined.  For the last 7 years, the Obama administration has refused to inform local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and local and state elected officials where the Muslim Refugees are being stealthily resettled.  That policy provided cover to Muslim Refugees listed in the attachment who killed Americans.

Speaker Ryan, former Speaker Boehner, and Senate Majority Leader McConnell, fully funded Obama’s expanded UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program by passing the $1.2 trillion, out of control, Omnibus Spending Bill in December 2015, which required the support of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, and the Obama White House, in order to blunt the hundreds of Republican Congressmen who opposed its passage.  It was another 2009 page bill, full of pork, that no one read because it was brought up for a vote, several days before the Christmas recess (so no one would take the time to read it), and it also funded every one of Obama’s Illegal Immigration policies through October 1, 2016.  That Omnibus Bill, is allowing the UNHCR to select only 85,000 Muslim Refugees for US resettlement (no Christians fleeing from genocide), and allowed to enter the US without being vetted by the FBI.  Obama’s Muslim Refugee Immigration policy, in support of the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, is designed to strategically populate over 2500 Mosques and Muslim Brotherhood Front Group organizations in 180 cities, to build up Muslim Refugee enclaves in 180 cities whose goal is to establish Sharia Law.  The Muslim Brotherhood ultimate goal published in its “Explanatory Memorandum” captured in a FBI raid in 2004, outlines its goal to replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law.  

Obama is now seeking the approval of Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell to increase funding for the UN Muslim Resettlement Program in 2017; Obama’s plan is to increase the number of Muslims Refugees entering the US from 75,000/year to 100,000 in 2016.  In addition, Obama has lifted the ban on preventing Muslim Refugees from entering the US with sexually transmitted disease including AIDS and HIV.  Another Obama’s destructive medical policy that will cost the US Public Health Service many millions of dollars/year.  The State Department and Department of Health & Human Services have been coordinating the entry of Muslim Refugee through nine private agencies, that contract with the federal government.  The nine agencies – six of which are affiliated with Christian and Jewish aide groups – receive hundreds of millions of US taxpayer dollars to resettle the Muslim Refugees in 180 cities across the US, without telling local, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies where they are being resettled.  

They have been resettling un-vetted Muslim Refugees for 7 years, disregarding the safety of their fellow Americans, knowing full well that the FBI has informed the US Congress and Obama that the Muslim Refugees can’t be vetted to determine if they have terrorist ties, and knowing full well that ISIS has said it will be smuggling Radical Islamic Terrorists into the US through the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program.  The leaders of those organizations are subverting the National Security of the United States.  They only care about receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in payoffs, from the Obama administration for resettling potential terrorists; they don’t care about the safety of American women and children.  Those unpatriotic Americans lead the US Conference Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, World Relief Corporation, Immigrant and Refugee Services of America, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service, Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA, and the Ethiopian Community Development Center, and are complicit in facilitating Radical Islamic Terrorists to operate under the radar of local, county, state, and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies.

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and its Front Groups have chosen 2016, as the year they will focus their revolutionary “Jihad” on the West.  According to former FBI Agent John Guandolo, an instructor at the US Army War College.  The MB Plan is to spread “Jihad” in the United States through its many front groups; the Muslim-American Society (MAS), Muslim Student Association (MSA), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The Muslim Society of America, and North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).  Former Special Agent Guandolo said the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups are teaming up with the “Black Lives Matter” movement (funded by Obama’s supporter George Soros), and by other anarchist groups like The Weather Underground/the Communist Party USA, etc. (led by Obama’s supporter Bill Ayres).  Those anarchist groups plan to create and coordinate “violent demonstrations” in cities across the nation during the election cycle.  They are planning demonstrations so violent, like no Americans has ever witnessed, and they are saying those “violent demonstrations” will surprise police departments across the nation (they will be very violent, and are planned to last 8-10 hours).  

Former FBI Agent John Guandolo said the strategy for “violent demonstrations” was leaked at the December 28, 2015 Annual Convention of The Muslim-American Society by Nihad Awad, Executive Director of CAIR, who was up front in embracing “Black Lives Matter”, saying “2016 is our year to make our mark.” At that same convention, another Muslim Brotherhood leader, Khalilah Sabra, Executive Director for the Muslim Society of America’s Immigrant Justice Center, said “We are the community that staged a revolution across the world.  If we can do that, why can’t we have a revolution in America?” (the Obama administration has her coordinating with the US Justice Department).  The Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum”, captured by the FBI in a 2004 raid, lays out a strategy to use America’s own leaders and its own “Politically Correct” policies to destroy the US from within, initially employing “Civilization Jihad”, and subsequently executing “Violent Jihad”.  “The Muslim Brotherhood Doctrine says it will destroy America….by America’s own hand,” said Guandolo.  Americans can read the Muslim Brotherhood plans to replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law, by going to the MB’s own Web sites, and read their own statements posted on the Internet.

Nearly 3 million Middle East and African Refugee migrants are fleeing from ISIS and flooding into Germany, Greece, France, Belgium, and Scandinavia.  Those refugees displaced by ISIS are providing the perfect cover to infiltrate a growing ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist Army into Europe; the ISIS terrorists are being resettled throughout Europe with the refugees they entered in with.  The number of ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist entering Europe have been estimated to be over 8000, said one of Europe’s leading Federal Law Enforcement Official.  “ISIS fighters, determined to carry out attacks in European cities, are entering the European continent hidden among migrants”, German Federal Police Chief, Hans-George Maasen, told the Austrian Press Agency.  Police Chief  Maasen, said “fighters from the Islamic State (ISIS) have come from the battlefields of Syria and Iraq and are blending in with the migrants and are planning combat missions in Europe,” the Daily Mail reported.  

Police Chief Maasen told the Austrian Press Agency, that his office was aware of nearly 8,000 Islamic radicals inside of Germany.  He said some are being recruited from among the Muslim Refugees children who entered Germany many years ago, and that his office receives at least one credible threat of a planned terrorist activity every week.  The Al Q’ieda & ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist who were integrated into millions of Refugee entering Europe and the US, their presence has resulted in Radical Islamic Terrorists killing 189 and wounding 752 innocent people.  In January 2015, the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack by Al Q’ieda in Paris killed 17 & wounded 22, the November 2015 Paris attack by ISIS killed 130 & wounded 368, the December 2015 San Bernardino attack by ISIS killed 14 & wounded 22, and the March 2016 Brussels attack by ISIS killed 28 & wounded 340.  At least two of the eight Paris attackers, who used automatic rifles, grenades and suicide vests to slaughter Parisians, reached Paris via Greece posing as refugees.  Following the March 2016 Brussels attack, it was been reported that 400 ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist have been sent to Europe, in order to execute follow on ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks.    

In response to the San Bernardino terrorist attack by two Radical Islamic Terrorists who pledged their allegiance to ISIS, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT-3), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, ordered DHS officials to appear before a hearing of his committee to explain the Obama administration’s complex visa application program.  The hearing wasn’t widely publicized; it occurred during the December 2015 holiday season, but the testimony by Obama appointee at DHS was startling.  Cong Chaffetz asked Ms Burriesci, DHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination Office of Policy: "Since 2001 the State Department has revoked approximately 122,000 visas for a variety of reasons including, revoking 9,500 Visa Overstay because they had suspected links to terrorism.  Of the 122,000 revoked visas, how many of those people are still in the United States?"  Ms. Burriesci startled the panel when she said “I don’t know.” Cong Chaffetz asked again, “So you have no idea how many of those people are in the US?”  With no response from Burriesci, Cong Chaffetz asked, “You don’t have a clue do you?”

 

Cong Chaffetz went on to say, “Those 9,500 people that the State Department gave out visas to, then thought about it, and decided we better revoke those 9,500 visas, because those people were tied to terrorism, and you don’t have a clue who they were, do you?”  The State Department knew that 9,500 Middle East entrants who they issued entry visas to; then after issuing the visas, they revoked the visas because they determined that those entrants had terrorist ties (something they should have checked before they issued the visas).  When they realized those entrants had terrorist ties, and tried to locate them in the US, they had no idea where those potential terrorists were located; they weren’t able to take action to evict them, the Obama administration appointees in DHS tried to cover it up, instead of alerting law enforcement agencies to execute a major national search with the help of media and the American public to find those 9,500 potential terrorists and evict them!!   

 

All of the pundits that are claiming that when Donald Trump said the US should temporarily suspend the entry of Middle East Muslim Refugees until they can be properly vetted to determine if they have terrorist ties, was a dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and/or unconstitutional proposal, should educate themselves by reading US Federal Law, 8 USC 1182 (f), entitled “The Suspension of Entry or Imposition of Restrictions by The President” which allows the President of the United States to suspend the wholesale immigration of thousands of Muslim Refugees entering the United States through the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program.  Since the Islamic State said they will imbed ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists in with the thousands of entering refugees from the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, that program should be paused so the FBI can vet each refugee entrant to determine if they have terrorist ties.  US Federal Law, 8 USC 1182 (f) was passed in 1952 by a Democrat-controlled House & Senate, and was signed by Democrat President Harry Truman.  The US Federal Law 8 USC 1182 (f) states in part:

 

“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

 

It is the law of the land, and it was employed, no less, by President Jimmy Carter in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States, but President Carter actually did much more.  President Carter made all Iranian students already in the US, check in, and then he deported seven thousand of them who were found to have violated the provisions of their student visas, and 15,000 Iranians were also forced to leave the United States in 1979.  Obama could temporarily pause the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, to protect the lives of American citizens from the kind of Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks that were executed in Paris, Brussels, San Bernardino, CA, and those listed in the attachment.  Common sense dictates, that a "pause" in the UN Refugee Resettlement Program.     

 

Like Europe has Muslim “No Go” communities, there are many Muslim “No Go” sanctuary communities in the United States where local police officials have had difficulty entering.  There are 22 Jamaat al-Fuqra Islamic Terrorist Training Communities with large weapons depots, where residents are called “Soldiers Of Allah” (SOA) and are taught paramilitary skills; how to kill, kidnap, assassinate, manufacture & plant bombs, take out guards, and attack installations in support of “Violent Jihad”.  The estimated numbers of “Soldiers of Allah” is about 3000.  The communities have been named “Muslims of America” cities by their founder, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who resides in Pakistan.  “Muslims of America” cities are gated communities with heavily armed guards, who aggressively restrict entry.  The 22 “Muslim of America” cities are located in heavily wooded, mountainous, and rural areas where there are very small police department (sometimes only 4 police officers).  Local law officers & Sherriff’s deputies avoid entering those Muslim sanctuaries, just like law enforcement officers in Brussels, Paris, London, Munich, etc. avoid entering Muslim communities in Europe.  Some of the SOA have been arrested for criminal activities including robbery, drug smuggling, gun running, burglary, carjacking, and murder.   “Muslim of America” communities are located in Deposit & Hancock NY, Bethany WV, Commerce & Jessup GA, York SC, Baladulla & Oak Hill CA, Springfield MA, Marion AL, Dover TN, Red House & Meherrin VA, Hyattsville MD, Philadelphia PA, Onalaska WA, Buena Vista CO, Coldwater MI, Talhina OK, Houston TX, and Fairfax VA.

After 9/11 and for the next 8 years of the President George W. Bush administration American citizens felt safe and well protected because the Al Q’ieda terrorists were attacked on their home ground; that is not the case with ISIS which exporting its terrorism to 70 countries.  Today 22,000 below listed potential terrorist threats are facing the National Security Interest of the Republic as a result of Obama’s repeated violation of US Federal Immigration Laws, his failure to close the wide open southern border for 7 ½ years, his failure for the last 6 years to aggressively contain & destroy ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists in Iraq, for ignoring the advice of highly experienced US Army Generals, the US Ambassador to Iraq, and the CIA, not to remove all US military forces from Iraq crating a vacuum, and because the Obama administration’s forced “Politically Correctness” on every employee in government, preventing them from referring to terrorists as Islamists, even though the terrorist referred to themselves and their Caliphate as such.  The 22,000 terrorist threats facing the republic are listed as follows:

(1)   It is estimated that 10% of the 915,000 un-vetted Middle East & African Muslims Refugees who entered through the UN Muslim Refugees Resettlement Program are probably sympathetic to the policies of ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists, it is therefore estimated that 91,500 of the Muslim Refugee entrants are a potential threat to the National Security of the United States. 

(2)   The 22 “Muslim of America” Terrorist Training Communities have an estimated 3000 Soldiers Of Allah potential terrorists.  

(3)   Obama’s immigration liberal open border policies has contributed significantly to a majority of the 76 terrorist attacks on the United States.  

(4)   The 900 FBI ISIS Terrorist Cases in all 50 states are direct result of the ISIS and Al Q’ieda threat in the Republic.   

(5)   As a result of the uncovering of 100 ISIS terrorist plots, the FBI made 95 ISIS terrorists arrests (most of the 95 arrests were affected in NY, CA, and NJ)

(6)   The 9,500 Middle East Muslim Visa Overstays with terrorist ties that Obama appointees at DHS tried to cover up, and can’t locate in the US, are a terrorist threat.

(7)   It was reported 250+ refugees recently admitted as American citizens, through Obama’s Fast Track US Citizenship Program, travelled to the Middle East to train with ISIS and participate in the genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians. The  250+ US Citizens of Middle East and African descent who were trained by ISIS, and have been freely returning to the United States, should be arrested upon return, tried, sentenced, and their passports should be revoked.     

Please review the below listed article that explains how, over a five year period from 2009 to 2013, Obama brought in enough Middle East and African Muslim Refugees for resettlement in 180 cities throughout the United States to populate the city of Washington, DC, through the anti-Christian UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, and other covert programs, while excluding the entry of 300,000 Christians in the Greek Catholic Relief Agency who fled from ISIS genocide, and ignored the FBI’s warning that they could not vet those Muslim Refugees to determine if they had terrorist ties.  Congressional leaders has been complicit, because they provided billions of US taxpayers dollars to fund a bigoted anti-Christian UN Refugee Resettlement Program for 7 ½ years.  Members of Congress had to vote to approve continuing budget resolutions each year for 7 years, in order to keep funding the US Armed Forces and other government agencies. Congress “must” finally take steps to assist the FBI, in its fight against Radical Islamic Terrorists, by cutting off all funding for the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, and by appropriating increased funding to hire and train more FBI Agent who to relieve the heavy caseloads on Agents.

WND EXCLUSIVE

'STAGGERING': FROM 2009 T0 2013, 680,000 MUSLIMS TO U.S. UNDER OBAMA

Green-card totals over 5 years enough to populate D.C.

LEO HOHMANN

The U.S. issued 680,000 green cards to migrants from Muslim-majority countries in the five-year period encompassing 2009 through 2013, according to Department of Homeland Security data.

This Islamic “invasion,” as some are calling it, occurred on the Obama administration’s watch, with plans for 10,000 Syrian Muslims grabbing much of the headlines. But the actual number is many times higher with a refugee program that is rooted in the 1980s and has the support of both parties.

The U.S. has brought in more than 1.5 million Muslims through the refugee program since the passage of the Refugee Act of 1980. They have been coming from Islamic states with active jihadist movements such as Somalia, Bangladesh, Burma, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Bosnia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

To put this five-year tally – 680,000 – in context, it surpasses the total population of Washington, D.C., which is 660,000.

Yet, the Gang of Eight immigration “reform” bill co-sponsored by GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio would have tripled the number of green cards being issued.

The data was released by Sen. Jeff Session, R-Ala., who serves on four Senate committees: Armed Services, Budget, Environment and Public Works, and Judiciary, where he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

What do YOU think? How many Muslim ‘refugees’ are too many? Sound off in today’s WND poll

Among those receiving green cards are foreign nationals admitted to the United States as refugees. Within one year, they must apply for lawful permanent resident status, also referred to as a green card, and are placed on a fast track to full citizenship, which is obtainable within five years.

Refugees, which are hand-picked by the United Nations for resettlement in more than 180 U.S. cities and towns, have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services. These costs are not offset.

The 680,000 number is not an estimate of total migration, as it does not include temporary migrants who return home, nor is it an estimate of population change, as it does not include births or deaths, among other considerations.

There is no official tally of the Muslim population in America because the Census does not track religious affiliation. The estimates range from 2.8 million by Pew Research based on a 2011 study and 7 million as estimated by the Council for American-Islamic Relations.

“Whatever the exact level, it can hardly be considered surprising that as the Muslim population in the country has expanded, so has the incidence of radicalism,” wrote Ian Tuttle in an article for National Review titled “The Troubling Math of Muslim Immigration.”

In fact, many of the recent terrorist attacks on U.S. soil have been carried out by Muslim immigrants, including the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 and the Chattanooga shooting earlier this year.

Sessions’ immigration subcommittee has documented 72 cases of Muslim suspects carrying out attacks or attempted attacks over the past year. He believes all of them are either foreign-born Muslim immigrants or their offspring and has asked the Obama administration to clarify their immigration histories, but the administration has ignored the request.

Rubio’s stance on Muslim immigration

Rubio told Fox News host Sean Hannity earlier this week that he would not use Congress’ power of the purse to shut off funding for the refugee program.

Rubio said he’d prefer Speaker Paul Ryan’s plan, which would allow the Obama administration to continue on its resettlement binge – bringing in 85,000 refugees this year, up from 70,000 annually in recent years.

Obama wants to increase the number of refugees coming to the U.S. to 100,000 in 2017. More than half of these refugees will come from Muslim-dominated countries with active jihadist movements.

Policy is bigger than just Obama administration

Assuming no change in visa policy, the U.S. can expect to give green cards to another 680,000 migrants from these countries over the next five years. A green card entitles recipients to access federal benefits, lifetime residency, work authorization and a direct route to becoming a U.S. citizen.

SECRET WEAPON REVEALED: See WND’s blockbuster story from one year ago that explains the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to change American society from within, through stealth jihad.

The numbers could be higher still: Census Bureau data shows migration from the Middle East to be one of the fastest-growing categories. If left in place, Obama’s refugee plan would substantially boost the annual number of migrants from this region admitted to the U.S. who, in turn, would be able to petition for their overseas relatives to join them in America. Refugees and asylees from Iraq, Somalia and Iran alone accounted for 124,000 Muslim immigrants from 2009 through 2013.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the foreign-born population in the United States is at a record 41.3 million. One-quarter of the U.S. population is now either foreign-born or has foreign-born parents.

The Census Bureau projects the percentage of the population born outside the country will soon pass the highest percentage ever recorded and continue rising to new all-time records never before witnessed – unless Congress passes a law to reduce green card allotments.

“Without such changes, the Census Bureau projects that, for each coming year the total number of immigrants in the United States will increase, the annual rate of immigrant admissions will increase, and the foreign-born share of the population will increase,” according to a statement from Sessions office.

“Pew polling data shows that 83 percent of the public (across all parties) opposes this growth baseline and believes the level of immigration should either be frozen or reduced,” Sessions’ statement said. “By a nearly 10-1 margin, Americans of all backgrounds are united in their shared belief that companies with positions to fill should raise wages instead of bringing in new lower-wage labor from abroad. And yet, despite this, the Senate’s Gang of Eight bill would have tripled the issuance of green cards over the next decade, and this year’s I-Squared bill would substantially increase both low-wage guest-worker admissions and green card allotments – all on top of the existing record-breaking and unprecedented growth in future immigration.”

Green Card Totals, FY09-FY13

Pakistan (83K), Iraq (83K), Bangladesh (75K), Iran (73K), Egypt (45K), Somalia (31K), Uzbekistan (24K), Turkey (22K), Morocco (22K), Jordan (20K), Albania (20K), Lebanon (16K), Yemen (16K), Indonesia (15K), Syria (14K), Sudan (13K), Afghanistan (11K), Sierra Leone (10K), Guinea (8K), Senegal (7K), Saudi Arabia (7K), Algeria (7K), Kazakhstan (7K), Kuwait (5K), Gambia (5K), United Arab Emirates (4K), Azerbaijan (4K), Mali (3K), Burkina Faso (3K), Kyrgyzstan (3K), Kosovo (3K), Mauritania (2K), Tunisia (2K), Tajikistan (2K), Libya (2K), Turkmenistan (1K), Qatar (1K), Chad (1K)

[Note: These are the specific DHS green card totals during this time range for Muslim-majority countries which sent at least one-thousand or more migrants, and include any refugees or asylees who adjusted to LPR status.]

  

The Muslim Brotherhood Threat; 76 Radical Islamic Terrorist Attacks In America Covered UP

By Capt Joseph R. John, on March 14, 2016

The governments of the United Arab Emirates has designated the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Muslim Student Association (MSA), and other Islamist organizations as terrorist organizations that promote, incite, and finance terrorism.  The MB overthrew the legally elected government of Egypt, violently cracked down on its opposition, perpetrated brutal genocide on all Christians in Egypt, and it has now been banned in Egypt.  Saudi Arabia, Syria, Bahrein, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Russia have all designated the MB as an international terrorist organization.  Israel, Canada, and the United Kingdom have announced that they are close to designating the MB as an international terrorist organization as well.  MSA is a college student organization, founded by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 at the University of Illinois.  In the early 1980's, the MB created the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), in order for it to be the "nucleus" of the Islamic Movement on the North American continent.  It was formed by many of the leaders who created the MSA, and is in fact an outgrowth of the MSA.  ISNA has become the umbrella organization for all MB Front organizations created by the MB in America. 

 

In 1980, when the ISNA was created in the US by the MB, it then created over 100 organizations to help accomplish MB’s stated mission, the “Civilization of Jihad.”  In 1992, the Muslim Brotherhood Strategic Plan (MBSP) was published.  The goal of the MBSP was to create thousands of Islamic organizations, in accordance with the MB Implementation Manual. The MB then created many new Islamic Societies, 2200 Islamic Centers and Mosques, 160 organizations (social organizations, media organizations, legal foundations, medical clinics, & trade associations), 700 Muslim Student Associations (MSA) on every major College & University campus, and other organizations across the United States.  The MB is continuing to create Islamic organizations that will be needed to achieve victory over democracy and the US Constitution in the US; they needed to populate those thousands of MB organizations with hundreds of thousands of Muslims to support the MB Strategic Plan—that is exactly what Obama has been doing for the last 7 years.  Obama has brought in and resettled 900.000 Muslim Refugees to populated the thousands of MB Front Groups.  Every year for the last 7 years, the Obama administration has rejected application from the Greek Catholic Relief Agency to admit 300,000 Middle East Christian Refugees fleeing from the ISIS brutal and bloody genocide. 

In 2001, the Justice Department indicted the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Muslim Brotherhood Front Group.  By 2008, the Justice Department successfully obtained a judgement against the HLF for terrorism.  The HLF prosecution was the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history, and the Justice Department proved that the MB directed the HLF to provide ‘media support, provide millions of dollars in financing, and supplied thousands of men to train in Hamas Terrorist Training Camps (a violation of US Federal Law).  CAIR was also named along with 300 other unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF case.  Federal prosecutors explicitly named CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS) as MB entities in the trial.  

From 1963 to the 2001, the Justice Department proved that through the HLF, the MB built a network of thousands entities in America including 2200 Islamic Centers and mosques, 160 associations(medical clinics, media organizations, legal foundations, & trade associations), and 700 Muslim Student Association Chapters (MSA) on every major college and university campus in the US.  The goal of forming those thousands of organizations & Islamic Centers was to fulfill the MB's stated American Mission - "Civilization Jihad".  Civilization Jihad is designed to overthrow the US government, and replace it with an Islamic State, under which Sharia (Islamic Law) will be the law of the land.  All of this is a matter of fact and the evidence was proffered by the Department of Justice in the HLF trial, and in several agencies of the United States Government.  All of this has also been exhaustively detailed in Understanding The Threats” (UTT) written by former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo, and it has also been outlined in many published articles, books, videos, and interviews about the Muslim Brotherhood.  Information on “Civilization Jihad” can be easily found, in many of the Muslim Brotherhood writings on their International Internet Web sites and other Islamic sites.

Because Obama has refused, for the past 7 years, to label the Muslim Brotherhood as an international sponsor of terrorism, both houses of the US Congress have finally introduced legislation, entitled the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act (HR 3892), sponsored by Cong Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL-8); a companion bill has been introduced in the US Senate.  HR 3892 designates the MB as a terrorist organization, outlines its long history of creating terrorism organizations like Al Q’ieda, ISIS, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Ansar Al Sharia, the Islamic Action Front, Ennahda Movement, and over 20 other worldwide Radical Islamic Terrorist splinter organizations.  It refers to Osama Bin Laden the founding, member of Al Q’ieda, and Ayman Al Zawahiri, the current leader of Al Q’ieda who were both supported & mentored by the MB, and explains that the MB assassinated Anwar Sadat in Egypt.   HR 3892 calls for deporting all foreign nationals who are members of the Muslim Brotherhood, including current employees and top advisers in the White House, the Defense Department, Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, the Department of Homeland Security, and other government agencies.  It calls for the deportation of Jihadist-preaching Imams who are visiting the USA on foreign visas.  Since in HR 3892 designates the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist and Jihadist organization, it would make it a crime for anyone to raise funds in the United States for the below listed MB Terrorist Front Groups:

  • The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) which refers to patriotic Christians as terrorists (on the Justice Department’s list of unindicted terrorist co-conspirator).
  • The Islamic Society of North America (a radical MB Front Group (on the Justice Department’s list of unindicted terrorist co-conspirators)
  • The North American Islamic Trust
  • The Barack H. Obama Foundation, formed by Barack's brother, Malik "Roy" Obama, who has been identified as the “principal” international fundraiser for the Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist Organization.  Lois Lerner personally signed the authorization papers allowing the formation of the Barack H. Obama Foundation while she was preventing Conservative organization from registering, to exercise their Constitutional right to participate in US elections.

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR supported Hamas in its terrorist attacks against American citizens and friendly Muslim nations in the Middle East, who had been allies of the US for over 70 years.  In testimony in 2011 before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Robert Mueller, the former Director of the FBI stated, “I can say at the outset that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood both here and overseas have supported terrorism.”  When the Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliates are capable, they will try to undermine democracy in the United States, as they have done or are doing in Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Bahrein, Lebanon, are other countries in Europe and the Middle East.  Even though the head of the FBI said the Muslim Brotherhood is undermining democracy and supporting terrorism, Obama and Clinton supported the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Libya, and had a gun running operation through Qatar to support the MB control in Libya.

In February 2011, the Libyan MB gained the support of Obama and then Secretary of State Clinton, to join them in their effort to depose Qaddafi.  In March 2011, despite repeated efforts by Qaddafi to negotiate his abdication and had agreed to his exile, Obama and Clinton refused his offer, because it wouldn’t have resulted in the MB taking control of Libya, they rejected his effort to abdicate, and insisted on the official support for the Libyan MB and Al Q’ieda militia to take over Libya.  Obama issued a Presidential Finding in March 2011, authorizing the transfer of weapons through Qatar to the Libyan MB and Al Q’ieda militia,  When Qaddafi was killed on October 20, 2011, the thousands of hand held shoulder fired missiles, and the massive store of weapons from Qaddafi’s armory were collected under the supervision of the CIA Annex in Benghazi from January to September 2012.  The CIA Annex directed that the massive store of weapons be shipped from the port of Benghazi to Turkish Ports, then transferred overland to the Syrian MB and Al Q’ieda militia in Syria.  In June 2012, Obama supported the MB’s overthrow of the Egyptian government, and immediately recognized Mohammed Morsi MB government.  After the Benghazi attack by Al Q’ieda, MB Front groups, Anas Al Sharia, and the Iranian Quid’s Force, Islamic Society of North America (a MB Front group), supported and promoted Obama and Clinton’s lies about the reason for the Benghazi attack was a video, that it wasn’t initiated by Radical Islamic Terrorists, through a Media release campaign, and by posting the Obama administration’s lies on its Web site about a video that was responsible for the attack in Benghazi, which stated “we condemned the creation of such a hateful video”.  Could there be any doubt that Obama and Clinton had stealthily supported the Muslim Brotherhood agenda to take over Egypt, Libya, Syria, and now the US?

Countries and leaders from all over the world have used only one word to describe the daily slaughter of Syrian and Assyrian Christian for the last 7 years, that word is “Genocide”.  The Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Royal Family in England, the UK Prime Minister, the King of Jordan, the President of Egypt, the President of Kurdistan, the Prime Minister of Japan, the Prime Minister of Australian, the Prime Minster of Russia, the President of Poland, President George W. Bush, President George HW Bush, President Jimmy Carter, Reverend Billy Graham, the Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Prime Ministers of every NATO nation, the European Union, the Prime Minister of Israel, Christian Religious Leaders of every denomination throughout the world, the Knights of Columbus, The Masonic Order, The Shriners International, the 17 Republican candidates who were seeking the nomination for US President, Christians worldwide, hundreds members of the US Congress, and the Secretary General of the United Nations have all raised their voices in unison to demand that the bloody “Genocide” of Christians in Africa, Syria, and on the Plains of Nineveh in Iraq immediately stop.  Unfortunately for 7 years, the occupant of the Oval Office has not joined in with world leaders in their condemnation of the “Genocide” of Syrian and Assyrian Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists, by ISIS, Al Q’ieda, Islamic Jihad, and other Radical Islamic Terrorists.   The silence from the Oval Office for the last 7 years, has been to be in line with the MB and MB Front Groups refusal to condemn the Genocide, and it continues to be disgraceful!!   

 

Today, MB Front organizations enjoy major influence within the Obama administration, in DHS, Federal law Enforcement Agencies, the US State Department, left of center media establishment, religious organizations being paid millions of dollars to resettle Muslim Refugees throughout the US, 70 Leftist/Socialist members of Congress, and on 700 campuses of colleges 7 universities.  Despite the fact that CAIR was previously linked to Hamas’ terrorism in the HLF trial, and that CAIR is an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, it has held hundreds of meetings with Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and White House Staff members (who were members of the MB and MB Front organizations).  CAIR has been influencing and lobbying for a wide range of national & international agreements, like passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement, that is eliminating US sovereignty on trade matters and is handing US’ sovereignty to international committees.  That agreement will bring in millions of Muslim low waged workers from 12 Pacific rim countries including Mexico, displacing millions of American workers.

 

CAIR has sought to present itself as a mainstream Muslim organization.  Over the last 7 years, the government, and law enforcement agencies often turned to the MB and MB Front organizations, when they needed to determine the pulse of the American Muslim community, or seek help in locating suspected Radical Islamic Terrorists threatening to attack the US homeland.  However, what often has been happening is that the leaders of MB Front organizations, and Imams of Mosques, under the guise of trying to help law enforcement, have often warned the suspected Radical Islamic Terrorist so they can get away.   Critics of the MB Front organizations– Muslim and non-Muslim alike – say that engaging thousands of the MB Front organizations to help with Radical Islamic Terrorist  issues, poses a very serious threat to the National Security interests of the United States, and that thousands of those MB Front organizations should be spied upon like they are being spied upon throughout Europe today.

 

A Homeland Security official reported that DHS was forced to "modify" nearly one thousand terror suspects posted on the Terrorist Screening Data Watch List (TSDWL) by removing all references to the terrorist ties those individuals had.  The terrorist suspects removed from the TSDWL by the Obama administration, entitled the “Hands Off List,” were members of the MB, MB front organizations, and were closely associated with & were supporters of Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a documents showing 1,000 individuals were scrubbed from the TSDWLin order to protect the MB and the MB front groups which included suspected Islamic Terrorist groups.  The 183 pages of DHS documents were produced in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed on February 13, 2015, related to a "Hands Off List". 

 

The “Hands Off List” was purportedly maintained and used by DHS, Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to allow those suspected terrorists to enter the United States, who had previously been denied entry to the United States, because of their terrorist ties, or because they had previously been required to undergo secondary screening by CBP because of suspicion of their terrorist ties.  The documents released by DHS confirm charges that the Obama administration created a massive "Hands Off List” of known suspected terrorists who had been removed from the TSDWL.  It was recently alleged, that if certain individuals had not been removed from the TSDWL by the Obama administration, that information could have helped prevent the San Bernardino terrorist attack that killed 14 and wounded 22 Americans. The new DHS documents confirmed that the removal of 1,000 terrorist suspects from the TSDWL is a violation of the US Federal Immigration Law, 5 USC § 552(b)(7)(E) which specifies that withholding the disclosure of specific intelligence information on suspected terrorists is a violation of US Federal Law.  

 

Over the last 7 years, the FBI has continued to warn Congress that it has never had the ability to determine if the 900,000+Muslim Refugees resettled stealthily throughout the United States by the Obama administration, have terrorist ties---yet the Republican led Congress keeps funding the entry of hundreds of thousands Muslim refugees, while saying absolutely nothing about Obama’s exclusion of 300,000 Christian refugees from the Middle East who have been making application through the Greek Catholic Relief Agency.  Radical Islamic Terrorists have been entering the United States through the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program for 7 years.  The result is that 250+ new entering Muslim refugees fast tracked to become US Citizens have traveled to the Middle East and Africa to participate in the ISIS genocide of Christians.  The FBI is prosecuting 900 ISIS terrorist case in all 50 states.  The FBI has broken up over 100 ISIS terrorist plots in the US, and the below list specifies a good number of the 76 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks on US soil are a result of Obama refusal to vet Muslim refugees to determine if they have terrorist ties.  The Radical Islamic Terrorist threat in the US has gotten completely out of control over the last 7 years, because of Obama’s massive resettlement of 900,000 Muslim Refugees throughout the US, his refusal to close the wide open southern border, and his infiltration of thousands of members of the MB and MB Front groups throughout the US government bureaucracy.   

 

Hundreds of thousands Muslim refugees have been entering the US as a result of the heavy pressure exerted by Obama, and by members of the MB and MB Front groups in influential positions in DHS and the State Department (listed in the below listed paragraph).  The leaders of the MB and MB Front Groups in the US who have been lobbying Obama and Congress to fund the massive resettlement of hundreds of thousands of Muslim Refugees throughout the US.  For over 7 years those Muslim Refugees who were never checked to determine if they had terrorist ties, were resettled throughout the United States by the Obama administration, without informing the elected officials in the cities and states where they were being resettled, and without informing local, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies where they were being placed.  As a result of that reckless Obama administration policy, over the last 7 years, there has been a massive spike in Radical Islamic Terrorist Attacks in the US listed below.  Those attacks have been covered up by the left of center liberal press to provide cover for Obama’s policies---ask anyone you know if they realize there has been over 76 Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks on Americans on US soil listed below.  

 

The Muslim Brotherhood has transformed Islam into a political movement, and that mix of religion and politics has become known as “Islamism.” Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood has established a presence in more than 70 countries, and created countless Muslim Brotherhood Front Organizations worldwide that have adopted and been driving its “Islamism” strategy and goals. That strategy, is promoted aggressively in many countries, is supporting ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood activities, and those activities are not in the best interest of the National Security of the United States.  While members of those Muslim Brotherhood Front organizations might appear to be moderate, their support and interpretation of Islam is at odds with democracy, human rights, and the US Constitution, the Rule of Law in the United States, and freedom in the Western world (just look at what is happening in Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, England, Spain, Greece, and Italy.  Engaging those Muslim Brotherhood Front organizations to ferret out Radical Islamic Terrorists and ISIS Terrorists hiding in plain sight, bestows an undeserved legitimacy upon those MB Front groups, and makes it easier for them to undermine federal law enforcement, and helps them advance their secretive agenda to install Shariah Law in the 70 countries they are operating in. 

 

Over the last 7 years Obama has appointed, members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and MB Front Groups, to leadership positions throughout the Federal Government Bureaucracy. Obama’s primary Presidential Advisor is Valerie Jarrett whose religion has been masked for 7 years (her college thesis stated she wanted to change the US to a Muslim friendly nation); unlike Obama, Jarrett has never alleged she is a Christian.  Jarrett’s Iranian origin and her close ties to Black Muslim in Chicago has fueled the allegation that she is a Muslim.  The CIA Director John Brennan, a convert to Islam, took his oath of office on the US Constitution, not on a bible.  The following leaders of the Obama administration have MB and MB Front Group memberships & associations: DHS Assistant Secretary for Policy Development Arif Aikhan, the Advisor to the Secretary of DHS Mohammed Elibiary, the White House Advisor & Founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council Salam al-Marayati (he was removed from the National Commission on Terrorism after his defense of terrorist acts and the terrorists who carried out those terrorist acts), Obama’s Sharia Czar & Founder of the Islamic Society of North America Imam Mohamed Magid (whose Mosque trustee & officer homes were raided by federal law enforcement agents because of their funding of terrorists), the Obama Administration Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnership Eboo Patel, and Secretary of State Clinton’s Primary Advisor & now her Presidential Campaign’s Primary Advisor Huma Abedin (whose mother & brother are actively involved in the outlawed MB in Egypt).  Those Obama appointees have been operating, under the radar, appointing thousands of MB and MB Front Group members to infiltrate all levels of the bloated Federal Bureaucracy, in Law Enforcement Agencies, in Intelligence Agencies, in DHS, in the State Department, and in many other government Agencies-----they now fill more civil service positions in government agencies, than the Communist Party filled in the 1950s, when Communists tried to take over the US government.

 

The above listed individuals have held meetings in the White House with the President of the Islamic Society of North America Azhar Azeez (a radical MB Front Group leader on the Justice Department’s list of unindicted terrorist co-conspirators), the USC Professor Sherman Jackson appointed to the King Faisal Chair (who while in Toronto “called Muslims to action against the West”), Muslim Public Affairs Counsel’s National Policy Advisor Hoda Hawa (leader of a MB known worldwide Jihadist organization).  Those leaders with terrorist ties have been lobbying Obama to appoint Muslim Judges to install Sharia Law (one such Judge was install in New York and gained national notoriety because her oath was taken on the Qur’an.  Cong Andre Carson (D-IN), is the first Muslim lawmaker appointed to the House Select Committee on Intelligence; he receives Top Secret Intelligence Reports on Islamic militants in Middle East and supports the MB Front Groups who have been designated as terrorist organizations  (he suggested US Schools should teach the Qur’an & be modeled after Islamic Madrassas in Pakistan). When he was sworn into Congress, another Muslim Congressman, Cong Keith Ellison (D-MN) took his oath of office on a copy of the Qur’an and has been supports the MB Front Groups, who have been designated as terrorist organization.

 

Would any other US President in the 240 year history of the Republic take the below listed actions, or appoint members of Terrorist Front Organizations (the MB Front Groups) to important leadership positions in the US government and give them SECRET clearances as Obama has? 

(1) The Obama administration has sent $100 million overseas to build Mosques.  

(2) Obama exempted all Muslims for the penalties under Obamacare that the rest of all American citizens must pay.  

(3) Obama told NASA its “foremost mission” was to outreach to Muslim communities (since Obama came to power 7 years ago, NASA no longer launches space flights).  

(4) Obama is the first US President in 240 years who has not sent out Christmas greeting cards from the White House or remains in DC during Christmas.  

(5) Obama halted the US military tribunals of Al Q’ieda & Taliban Terrorists in GITMO; instead he transferred hundreds of Terrorist to the custody of foreign countries.  (6)For 7 years Obama refused to call the Fort Hood killing of 13 and the wounding 31 US Army personnel by a Radical Islamic Terrorist a terrorist attack.  

(7) Obama funneled $490 million of taxpayer’s money to Hamas, after Hamas was convicted of terrorism in the Holy Land Foundation trial.  

(8) Obama forced mandatory Arabic language & Arabic cultural studies in grammar schools across the nation through Common Core.  

(9) Obama had Common Core spend 5 days teaching the Qur’an & the Muslim religion, while spending less than one day on the Christian religion. 

(10) Obama cut off all military aide to Egypt after the military deposed the Muslim Brotherhood government that was slaughtering  thousands of Egyptian Christians.  (11)Obama got agitated and stomped out of a Pentagon briefing on expanded the bombing campaign against ISIS, when the briefer tied the Islamic State to Islam.  

(12) Obama removed all literature from federal law enforcement and Intelligence agencies that identified Radical Islamic Terrorist or Islam, eliminating many years of valuable background data about the history of  the Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, and Radical Islamic Terrorist organization, dumbing down the knowledge of Law Enforcement and Intelligence Officers on anything that relates to Islamic Jihad, Islamic Terrorism, the Islamic genocide from 632-711 & in 1914.

(13) At the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, Obama attempted to minimize the ISIS’ past 7 years of brutal genocide of Christians, Obama stated: "Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ."  (What really happened in 1100 AD was that after 400 years of Islamic brutal genocide of Christians from 632-711 AD in Jerusalem, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, North Africa, Spain, France, Sicily, Cyprus, Crete, etc., Europe finally responded with a Crusades to protect Christians and take back their homes in the Middle East). 

(14) Despite the brutal & bloody genocide of thousands of Syrian & Assyrian Christians for 7 years by ISIS, Al Q’ieda, Islamic Jihadists, and Radical Islamic Terrorists, designed  to exterminate them from the Middle East by beheading them, crucifying them, burning them alive, drowning them, burying them alive, throwing them off of high rise buildings, cutting little Christian children in half, by raping of young Christian women before they were murdered, torturing Christians, hanging Christians, shooting Christians behind the head in a kneeling position, and selling Christian women into white slavery.  Obama has refused to have the US Government official condemn the brutal extermination of Christians in the Middle East, “genocide””, like over 100 hundreds countries have done—because the MB condones it.

(15) Obama assigned leaders of ISNA, a MB Terrorist Front Group, named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the conviction of the Holy Land Foundation terror trial, to be advisors to the National Security Council Staff, and to be advisors to the last 2 Secretaries of State in the Obama administration.  

(16) Obama has placed ISNA members, a MB Terrorist Front Group, named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the conviction of the Holy Land Foundation terror trial, in charge of recruiting and certifying Muslim Chaplains for the US Armed Forces and the Bureau of Prisons.

(17) Obama has placed leaders of ISNA, an MB Terrorist Front Group, named as an unindicted co=conspirator in the conviction of the Holy Land Foundation terror trial, to the Homeland Security Advisory Committee and has given them SECRET clearances.

 

Although Law Enforcement has been working closely with the MB Front Groups for the last 7 years to ferret out Radical Islamic Terrorists threatening the US, it hasn’t resulted in the hoped for results, if they had, the below listed terrorist attacks would not have occurred in the United States.  In additions, the 250+ newly admitted Muslim Refugees, who were fast tracked by Obama to become US Citizens, would have never traveled to the Middle East and Africa to participate in the genocide of Christians, and the FBI wouldn’t be over extended prosecuting 900 Radical Islamic Terrorist and ISIS cases in all 50 states, at the same time over 100 ISIS terrorist plots in the US have been discovered and broken up by the FBI.  Since Obama came to power, the attempts to prevent Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks is losing ground because of his above listed policies, and the threat is expanding with the entry of over 100,000 new Muslim Refugees Obama is bringing in to the US this year, being funded by the Republican leaders in Congress.  

 

Despite all the above listed serious threats and attacks by Radical Islamic Terrorists, ISIS. Al Q’ieda, Islamic Jihad, and Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups it has been covered up by the left of center liberal media establishment, in order to protect Obama’s open borders policies and his resettlement of over 900,000+ UN Muslim Refugees stealthily without letting the FBI vet them to determine if they have terrorist ties.  It should be noted that Obama has developed refugee programs where  91% of the 900,000+ Muslim Refugees are receiving food stamps, 73% are receiving Medicaid medical coverage, 68% are receiving cash welfare payments, where their travel costs, and their resettlement into new homes are being funded by US taxpayers (in the amount of $3 billion each year).  An American women who would have worked and paid taxes for 40 years of her life and retired on Social Security and Medicaid, is receiving much less in Social Security and Medicaid, than a Muslim Refugee receives on “day one” when they arrived in the US---veterans don’t receive the same quality of medical care from the VA that a Muslim Refugee receive from the Obama administration on “day one.”   

 

At the same time the threat is growing in the US from Radical Islamic Terrorists, the Communist Cuban government has allowed Hezbollah to establish a Radical Islamic Terrorist Training Camp on its soil.  The goal of the Hezbollah terrorist training camp is to train America supporters of ISIS who will be able to fly to Cuba as tourists, to get their terrorist training, and the will no longer have to fly to the Middle East to get their terrorist training, like 250 Muslim Refugees did to train and participate in the genocide of Christians.  The Hezbollah terrorist training camps, after training recruits from the Middle East,  will be able to infiltrate trained Radical Islamic Terrorists from the Middle East through the “wide open southern border” to kill Americans.

 

Since Obama came to power 7 years ago, there has been ZERO action by the federal government to close down the MB, a designated International  Terrorist Organization outlawed by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Syria, Bahrein, and Russia.  Ever since 2008, when the US Justice Department found the Holy Land Foundation guilty of terrorism, the Obama administration has refused to target the massive jihadi network that the MB has created in the US; it has prospered and grown much stronger with the influx of 900,000 Muslim Refugees to fill its ranks.  In a  declassified FBI document from 1987, the Muslim Brotherhood was identified as a "secret Muslim organization that has unlimited funds and is extremely well organized in the United States.” The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) leadership has indicated, that in the current phase of their organization’s attempts to bring Sharia Law into the US, that it has had success in infiltrating the US Government.  The ultimate goal of the Muslim Brotherhoods Islamic Revolution is the overthrow all non-Islamic governments worldwide, and that violence is a tool that will  be used in the future as part of the Islamic revolution."(as it was used in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Sudan, and Lebanon) 

"God is our Goal. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our constitution. Jihad is our way. Death in the service of God is the loftiest of our wishes. God is great; God is great."

The above statement is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in 1928, as a vehicle to establish a worldwide Islamic empire governed by Shariah law.  The Muslim Brotherhood and its Muslim Brotherhood Front organizations are a very dangerous threat to the internal security of the United States, the US Rule of Law, the National Security of the United States, the Freedom of Religion, the survival of the US Constitution, and the Free Enterprise System.  We encourage you to review the below partial list of 76 Muslim Refugees and Radical Islamic Terrorist attacks that have been executed against Americans on US soil—the number may shock you, because it has been covered up for 7 years by Obama.  Nearly every act of Jihad against Americans from 9/11 on, executed on American soil, can be linked to the Muslim Brotherhood Centers, the Radical Islamic Terrorist organizations created by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups listed above.  We encourage you to give this Op ED wide distribution to those in your address book who want to preserve the Republic and the 240 years America has survived its Foreign and Domestic Enemies.

The media is covering up the arrests of Muslim refugees across North America so that Americans will stop pressuring Congress to pass the Terrorist Refugee Infiltration Prevention Act.

A partial list of the refugees and Radical Islamic Terrorists who have participated in jihad against the USA since Obama took office.

  • On January 7, 2016, Aws Mohammad Younis Al-Jayab was arrested in Sacramento, CA on charges of assisting jihadi organizations.
  • In an unrelated case, also on January 7, 2016, Omar Faraj Saeed al Hardan, an Iraqi Refugee, was arrested in Houston, TX on charges of providing material support to ISIS and going through terrorist training.
  • In Philadelphia, PA, a jihadi opened fire on a cop on January 8, 2016. He fired 13 shots and hit the police officer three times, grievously wounding the man.

    Canada, were arrested after they invaded the doorway of a neighborhood bar and grievously wounded a 38-year old stranger. 
  • In November 17, 2015 A Uzbek Muslim refugee in Boise, ID was convicted of plotting to bomb US military bases.  On August 14, 2015 three Somali Muslims, Mohamud Mohamed, 36, and Osman Sheikh, 31, Abil Teshome, 23, brutally beat and murdered Freddy Akoa, 49 a Christian in Portland, ME. The attack allegedly took place over the span of several hours, in which Akoa suffered cuts and bruises all over his body, a lacerated liver and 22 rib fractures. However, according to the autopsy, Akoa died as a result of blows to his head.  
  • Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez murdered five US Armed Forces (1 Navy and 4 Marines) in Chattanooga, TN in July 2015On February 16, 2016, a court magistrate ruled after hearing the FBI testimony that Khalil Abu-Rayyan, a 21 year old Dearborn, MI man  was too much of a threat to public safety and ordered him held without bail. He gets excited by thoughts of beheading Americans, burning people alive and throwing homosexuals off of tall buildings. He’d actually made plans to shoot up a 6,000 member Christians in Detroit, in conversations with an undercover FBI agent.. (If I) can’t go do jihad at the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.” He also told the agent that “shooting and death make me excited. I love to hear people begging and screaming. … I wish I had my gun.”  The FBI claims Abu-Rayyan has since late 2014 used Twitter for “retweeting, liking and commenting” on Islamic State propaganda. 
  • On February 12, 2016 a machete wielding assailant known to the FBI, identified as Mohammad Barry, a Somali living in Ohio attacked Jewish and Christian patrons at a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, killing four people.

Cong Duncan Hunter, Maj-USMCR: Obama Gitmo Policy May Be Forcing US Military to Release Newly Captured Terrorists on the Battlefield

By Capt Joseph R. John, on March 7, 2016 

An endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (R-CA-52) in the below article is opposing the transfer of the most dangerous Al Q’ieda Terrorists incarcerated at the US Naval Detention Facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GITMO) to foreign countries and to US prisons on United States soil.  There is a much more sinister reason why the occupant in the Oval Office has been transferring hundreds of Radical Islamic Terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility, for the last 7 years; Obama has been ignoring the fact 30% of released terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility have resumed terrorist activities and/or have returned to the battlefield to kill US Military personnel.  Even though the Al Q’ieda and Taliban Terrorists that Obama has been releasing from GITMO are killing and maiming more American military personnel on the battlefield, Obama has been ignoring those facts, because his ultimate goal is to transfer the US Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay to Castro’s Communist Cuba, regardless of what is required.

 

Obama promised to shut down US Naval Detention Facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba when he took office, and for 7 years he has blocked captured terrorist suspects from being sent to the US Naval Detention Facility in Cuba.  This, coupled with the US Armed Forces closure of the US Military Detention Facility near the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan at the end of 2014, raises questions about the US Armed Forces’ ability to detain suspected Taliban Terrorists captured on the battlefield, under the Authorization for Use of Military Force.  Congressman Hunter inquired of Secretary of Defense Carter how captured Taliban Terrorist are being ultimately dealt with.  Under Obama administration policies, those Taliban Terrorist captured on the battle field (in Afghanistan) are now being transferred to foreign custody. (Washington Free Beacon, 2/22/16)

 

Congressman Hunter wrote to Secretary of Defense Carter on January 28, and stated in his correspondence: “Given the clear position of Congress on the proposed closure of Guantanamo Bay and the prohibition on detainee transfers to domestic facilities, I am concerned that the Department of Defense is being forced to relinquish control of dangerous individuals captured by U.S. Forces (in Afghanistan) due to the president’s refusal to utilize Guantanamo Bay for new detention cases.”

 

Congressman Hunter went on to state in his correspondence, “Once in foreign custody, an individual’s release can occur despite the best efforts of the U.S. to keep that individual in custody,” Congressman Hunter continued. “An already high-rate of recidivism adds to the probability that some individuals will subsequently reengage U.S. forces on the battlefield or resume terrorist activity. This puts American lives at risk.”  Joe Kasper, Congressman Hunter’s Chief of Staff, told the Free Beacon that Obama’s detainee policy can only lead the American public to assume that “many of the people our operators pick up (in Afghanistan) are turned over and released, in some cases immediately.” 

 

Two years after Iran’s terrorist front group, Hezbollah, established a terrorist training camp in Castro’s Communist Cuba, and had been regularly exporting Radical Islamic Terrorism to South America and to the United States, Obama told another of his many lies.  He certified to Congress, as required by US Federal Law, that he could remove Cuba from the US list of nations that sponsor terrorism, when he knew full well that Communist Cuba was allowing Hezbollah to train terrorists on Cuban soil, and had been exporting terrorism throughout the Western Hemisphere.  Obama then followed the first big lie with another bigger lie, when he told the American people he could safely establish diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba, something 10 US Presidents refused to do for 55 years, because Castro’s Communist Cuba never ceased exporting terrorism and Communism throughout North and South America.   

 

Communist Cuba continues to work very closely with Hezbollah, Iran, and Radical Islamic Terrorists to destabilize the United States.  Yet, Obama just established round trip airline traffic between the US and Cuba, making it very easy for Muslim Refugees sympathetic to ISIS to fly to Cuba, complete their terrorist training in Hezbollah Terrorist Training Camps, then return to the United States to attack Americans.  The FBI informed Congress that 250+ newly admitted Muslim Refugees who were admitted as US Citizens thru Obama’s fast track refugee citizenship program, have flown to the Middle East and Africa to train with ISIS and participate in the genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians.

 

Obama has been trying to get Congress to approve the transfer the highest risk Al Q’ieda Terrorists killers to US prisons, that no other country in the world will accept, so he can close the US Naval Detention Facility in Guantanamo, Cuba.  Recently, the Joint Chiefs of Staff informed Congress that US Federal Law prevents the US Armed Forces from transferring Al Q’ieda and Taliban Terrorists detainees in Gitmo to the United States.  If the US Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay is transferred to Castro’s Communist Cuba, most probably the Hezbollah terrorist training camp would be moved to the US Naval Base, in order to improve and expand their training capacity for Radical Islamic Terrorist.  

 

In the last 7 years, despite the fact that thousands of Radical Islamic Terrorist have been captured in combat by US Military personnel in Afghanistan, often at the loss of life of US military personnel, none of those prisoners have ever been transferred to GITMO for interrogation, preventing the US military from having the required extended time required to extract valuable military intelligence from the Taliban Terrorists, most of those captured terrorists have been released from the Detention Facilities in Afghanistan to go right back to the battlefield to engage and kill American military personnel.  In every military conflict over the 240 year history of the Republic, US military personnel have employed night time patrols, in order to capture high value enemy leaders, so they could extract high value current intelligence during interrogations.  Instead of capturing high value Al Q’ieda and Taliban Terrorists leaders for interrogation, Obama has been having those terrorist leaders killed with drone strikes for 7 years---removing the ability of US Combat Forces from obtaining current and future battlefield intelligence, that policy for the last 7 years has ensured that high value terrorists will never be incarcerated in the Detention Facility in Guantanamo Bay Cuba.  

 

By releasing prisoners on the battlefield to return to combat, when taken together with Obama’s public pronouncement that a certain number of combat personnel will be removed on specific dates, and by forcing dangerous Rules of Engagement (ROE) upon combat personnel for the last 7 years, US military personnel going into “Harm’s Way” in Afghanistan have been operating with their hands tied behind their backs.  The new and dangerous ROE have increased the number of US military personnel Killed In Action (KIA) by 458 %/year and those Wounded In Action (WIA) increased by 378%/year.  Obama policies in Afghanistan have effectively ensured that there will be no victory against the Taliban, Al Q’ieda, and Iranian Quid’s Force who have been providing IUDs to the Taliban, in order to kill and maim US military personnel..  The below listed link will provide details of how the percentage of  KIA and WIA were calculated from raw data.

Obama Gitmo Policy May Force Pentagon to Release Newly Captured Terrorists
Lawmaker concerned push to close facility is releasing terrorists to battlefield

BY: Morgan Chalfant
February 22, 2016 

 

President Obama’s push to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility may be forcing the Department of Defense to release suspected terrorists newly captured by U.S. forces overseas, according to a Republican lawmaker and former Marine.

 

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA-52.) recently penned a letter to Defense Secretary Ash Carter expressing concern that Obama’s refusal to send new terrorist suspects to Guantanamo Bay is allowing them to return to the battlefield to fight U.S. forces and resume acts of terrorism.

 

“Given the clear position of Congress on the proposed closure of Guantanamo Bay and the prohibition on detainee transfers to domestic facilities, I am concerned that the Department of Defense is being forced to relinquish control of dangerous individuals captured by U.S. forces due to the president’s refusal to utilize Guantanamo Bay for new detention cases,” Hunter wrote to Carter on January 28.

 

“And once in foreign custody, an individual’s release can occur despite the best efforts of the U.S. to keep that individual in custody,” Hunter continued. “An already high-rate of recidivism adds to the probability that some individuals will subsequently reengage U.S. forces on the battlefield or resume terrorist activity. This puts American lives at risk.”

 

Obama, who promised to shut down Guantanamo Bay when he took office, has blocked captured terrorist suspects from being sent to the military prison. This, coupled with the United States’ closure of the detention facility near the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan at the end of 2014, raises questions about the Pentagon’s ability to detain suspected terrorists captured under the Authorization for Use of Military Force, Hunter wrote.  Under the Obama administration, these terrorist suspects are typically transferred to foreign custody.

 

Hunter’s letter comes at a time of increased U.S. military presence abroad to combat terrorism. The Pentagon has sent limited numbers of special operations forces to both Iraq and Syria to assist groups fighting ISIS. These forces are engaging in some activities, such as conducting raids, which can result in the detention of terrorists.

 

Legal experts have worried about what the Pentagon will do with suspected terrorists captured by special operations forces operating against ISIS and its affiliates. Phillip Carter, who served as Obama’s Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Detainee Policy, told the Associated Press recently that the administration’s current policy may need to change.

 

“If you’re going to be doing counterterrorism operations that bring in detainees, you have to think through what you are going to do with them,” Carter said. “If the U.S. is going to conduct large-scale combat operations or large-scale special ops and bring in more detainees, it needs a different solution.”

 

The president accelerated his effort to close Guantanamo at the start of the year, reducing the detention center’s population to around 90 by releasing several detainees to their home countries. Among the group of released prisoners was an admitted member of Al Q’ieda who helped develop explosives for the terrorist group to target U.S. military forces and civilians.

 

Prisoners released from Guantanamo have resumed terrorist activities in the past. Ibrahim al-Qosi, Obama bin Laden’s former cook who was transferred from Guantanamo to his native Sudan in 2012, recently appeared in a jihadist propaganda video as a senior leader of al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen.

 

In the face of Republican opposition to his efforts, Obama has threatened to use executive action to move forward with his plan to close the facility, which would involve sending Guantanamo detainees to prisons in the United States. However, current law bars the military from transferring terrorist suspects held at the prison to U.S. facilities, which is bound to complicate the president’s efforts.

 

In his letter to Carter, Congressman Hunter asked the Pentagon Chief to clarify current policy regarding the detainment of individuals in military operations. The lawmaker also asked Carter to specify any circumstances under which U.S. forces would be required to release a captured individual, as well as what measures the Pentagon has in place to “account for” captured individuals transferred to foreign nations.

 

Joe Kasper, Congressman Hunter’s Chief of Staff, told the Free Beacon that Obama’s detainee policy can only lead the American public to assume that “many of the people our operators pick up are turned over and released, in some cases immediately.” 

 

“The administration’s detainee policy, which revolves arounds the president’s commitment to close Guantanamo, is almost guaranteeing that some of America’s enemies won’t ever face justice or even the threat of detainment,” Kasper said.

 

 

Medal of Honor Recipient, SSOC Edward C. Byers, Jr., USN (SEAL), Shuns Spotlight

By Capt Joseph R. John, on February 29, 2016                        

America is fortunate to have men serving in US Navy SEAL Teams like Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward C. Byers Jr., USN, (SEAL) who will be awarded the Medal Of Honor in the White House today, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.  Senior Chief Byer’s will only be the second Medal of Honor recipient who continues to serve on active duty; he will remain on active duty with Maj William D. Swenson, USA who was awarded the Medal of Honor for combat in Afghanistan in September 2009.  Senior Chief Beyer’ profile is outlined in the below listed article.

 

There are currently 77 living recipients of the United States Military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor.  Of the 77 living recipients, six earned their Medals of Honor in World War II, seven in the Korean Conflict, 54 in the Vietnam Conflict, and 10 in Afghanistan.  Three earned their Medals of Honor while serving in the US Air Force, 51 in the US Army, 16 in the US Marine Corps, and 7 in the US Navy.  

 

The oldest recipient is Tech 5th Grade Robert D Maxwell, USA, aged 95 who was awarded the Medal of Honor for combat in European Theatre during WWII, and the youngest recipient is Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter, USMC age 26 who was awarded the Medal of Honor for combat in Afghanistan.  

 

Three recipients of the Medal of Honor have endorsed our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution and are listed on the Endorsee of PAC page of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC Web site.  They are Major General James E. Livingston, USMC (Ret) (Medal of Honor), Colonel Bud Day, USAF (Ret) PhD, JD (Medal of Honor) (Air Force Cross) (Vietnam POW), and Lieutenant Mike Thornton, USN (Ret) (Medal of Honor), a founding member of SEAL Team SIX.

 

Because members of the US Armed Forces serving on active duty like Senior Chief Byers go into “Harm’s Way”, to support them, Congress must pull all the stops, and:

 

(1) Put a halt to the hollowing out of the US Armed Forces.  

 

(2) Vote for wages that are equivalent to civilian wages; civilians do not go into “Harm’s Way”, nor are they required to suffer long family separations 

   (military recruits in combat are not paid the $15/hour wage, that some in Congress have proposed to pay high school employees at McDonalds).  

 

(3) Pass a DOD budget that will fund the purchase of new equipment, outdated equipment has been endangering the lives of military personnel.

 

(4) Employ the power of the purse to force the VA to make timely medical appointments for Veterans (300,000 Veterans have died awaiting VA medical appointments).

 

When you meet a member of the US Armed Forces---thank him or her for their service to the Republic, and ask your Congressional Representative to support them.

Medal of Honor Recipient Shuns Spotlight
USA TODAY 9:15 p.m. EST February 26, 2016
Tom Vaden Brook

WASHINGTON — Imagine yourself in the most dangerous, dire circumstance — held hostage, say, by the Taliban. You’d want a guy just like Edward Byers looking for you.

 

No nonsense, humble, focused, Byers on Monday will receive the military’s highest award – the Medal of Honor – for helping rescue an American doctor in Afghanistan in 2012.

 

He’ll shake President Obama’s hand and acknowledge the loss of a treasured colleague. Later, Senior Chief Byers — the sixth Navy SEAL to receive the award and the first living one since 1998 — will gladly slip back into the shadows, and the exquisitely dangerous, secretive work that has become his life’s calling.

 

“As you get older, of course your body starts to break down a little bit,” Byers, 36, told USA TODAY in an interview at the Pentagon. “Still fit enough to keep going.”

 

No doubt about that. Byers, blue-eyed, baby-faced and bearing a black silicone wedding band (easy to wear during workouts), intends to keep serving for as long as he can. He talked about what inspired him to enlist, why he keeps serving and the importance of saying as little about that action as possible.

 

Byers grew up in Ohio, the son of a World War-II-era sailor. Like father, like son: His dad didn’t speak much about his service, Byers said. Books and movies about war piqued the young Byers interest in the military. The 1990 action movie Navy SEALs, starring Charlie Sheen, pretty much sealed it.

 

“As I became more of a teenager, I started to get more into the unique missions and the secrecy behind the Navy SEALs,” Byers said. “From that moment on, there was just something inside of me that said, ‘This is what you’re going to do in life.’”

He joined the Navy in 1998, became a hospital corpsman, then a SEAL, and has deployed 11 times with nine combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s earned five Bronze Stars with valor, and been awarded two Purple Hearts. The only mission he’ll talk about — and not much at that — is the one that occurred on Dec. 8, 2012.

 

Indeed, if not for his “conspicuous gallantry” that night the details of that mission would remain largely secret. His SEAL Team Six, the same elite unit that killed Osama bin Laden, had been tapped to rescue Dilip Joseph, an American doctor taken hostage by the Taliban. As he has before every mission, Byers said a prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.

“Defend us in battle,” it begins.

 

After a four-hour hike over rugged terrain on the cold night, Byers and his SEAL teammates approached the building where Joseph was being held. The first SEAL through the door, Chief Nicolas Checque, 28, was cut down by fire from an AK-47.

Byers barreled in behind Checque, killed a guard pointing a rifle at him, and tackled another man. Byers held that man with one hand while adjusting his night-vision goggles with the other. Byers determined that man wasn’t Joseph and killed him.

When Byers heard somebody speaking English, he hurled himself across the room and on top of Joseph to protect him from bullets whizzing across the room. At nearly the same instant, Byers grabbed the last guard by the throat and pinned him to wall where he was shot dead by other SEALs.

 

Five Taliban lay dead, and Byers, a trained paramedic, sought in vain to revive Checque. A helicopter whisked away the Americans. A report by The New York Times on the mission quoted Joseph as saying one of the Taliban fighters was captured alive and later was found dead. The Pentagon disputes that account.

 

Byers, in the interview, said he had not read Joseph’s book and doesn’t intend to. The military’s account of the mission is accurate, he said. Also not open for debate, according to Byers, is the bravery of Checque and the other SEALs, any of whom was prepared to die that night.

 

“First off, the loss of Nick Checque is a tragedy,” Byers said. “However, he died a warrior’s death. And that night was a success in everyone’s mind because we brought back an American hostage. That was our mission; it was a hostage rescue.

 

“So the no-fail aspect of that was we have to bring him back alive. And in doing so, Nic gave his life. I would like to think that if he was here right now, and he was asked to do it over again, he would. That’s what we do. That’s what we sign up to do.”

Byers, who is married and has an 11-year-old daughter, credited the support of his family, friends and the tight-knit SEAL community for allowing him to continue serving. He acknowledged the frequent combat tours take a toll, and noted that he has been deployed every year his daughter has been alive.

 

What he has more trouble stomaching, though, are the books written by retired SEALs that reveal secrets of their trade. No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, was a best-seller in 2012 and has spawned several other books about SEALs. Don’t look for a first-person account by Byers of the mission that saved Joseph anytime soon.

 

“I’ve been in the military almost 18 years,” Byers said. “I’ve lived a very quiet life. I’m not exactly sure what their motives are and what they’re trying to accomplish by writing those. I’ve never read their books. I have no plans in the future to write a book or do a movie or anything like that. It’s not what I believe in.”

 

Byers is “very confident,” he says, that the majority of his secret warrior brethren feel the same way.

“We are currently facing one of the greatest threats to our nation that we’ve ever seen,” Byers said. “Anything that you could write about or talk about that could help our enemies when we do combat operations — that could potentially get any of our service members injured or killed — I just don’t think is the right call.”

 

Interviews about the Medal of Honor, he said, “are just something I have to do right now.”

 

After Monday, Byers will be content to go back to what qualifies for him as a “very quiet life.”
 

Obama Continues to Degrade the "Combat Effectiveness" of the US Armed Forces

By Capt Joseph R. John, on February 25, 2016

 

In the below listed Op Ed by Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr. ’52, USN (Ret), former Commander-in-Chief of the US Pacific Fleet, he highlights the latest inept directive degrading the strength of the US Armed Forces.  The “Climate Change” directive is the latest inept directive designed to hobble the US Armed Forces.  It is a policy directive among a whole range of the Obama administration’s same inept policies and directives that have been degrading the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces for the last 7 years.  

 

Obama continues to issue these directives, with absolutely no opposition from the Republican Leadership in Congress.  The US Congress has the authority and power to oppose Obama’s steady stream of inept directives designed to hobble the US Armed Forces by using the power of the purse to restrict DOD Undersecretaries, and by ignoring their authority to execute their Constitutional authority, as an equal branch of government, enforcing Article 1., Section 8, Clause 14 of the US Constitution "To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the Land and Naval Forces;" to aggressively oppose such an inept policy directive.

 

Obama’s dangerous polices and blunders over the last 7 years have made the US more vulnerable to the enemies of the Republic as outlined below.  Those actions over the last 7 years by Obama were designed to make sure that the US would no longer be the only Superpower in the world.  The last two Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullins, USN (Ret) and General Martin Dempsey, USA (Ret) did Obama bidding in a steady series of policies changes that have negatively affected the National Defense of the Republic as follows:   

 

(1) They covered up the fact that two armed and ready US Air Force F-16Cs aircraft were sitting on the tarmac in Aviona, Italy 50 minutes away from Benghazi, that an AC-130H Spectre gunship was manned and ready on the Tarmac in Sigonella, Sicily, 45 minutes away from Benghazi, and that the US Army In-Extremis Force, 130 manned Charlie Company (known as C-1/10) was ready on the tarmac in Croatia, less than 3 hours away from Benghazi.  The only reason the rescue wasn’t ordered, was because Obama refused to execute “Cross Border Authority” which was required to launch a rescue mission to save the lives of the two Navy SEALs, who could have been easily saved, but they were killed 7 hours and 35 minutes after the attack began----hoping beyond hope that rescue aircraft less than one hour away would be launched to save them.

 

(2) They issued and enforced the new & dangerous Rules of Engagement (ROE) on US Combat Forces in “Harm’s Way." Those dangerous ROE were responsible for increasing combat deaths by 458%/year, and increased the wounding & maiming of thousands of military personnel by 378%/year.  Those Obama REO endangers the lives of all US military in combat, and led to the death of 17 members of SEAL Team SIX on the Extortion 17 helo flight, following their successful operation that killed Osama Bin Laden.

(3) Both Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff supervised the downsizing of the US Navy to the number of ships that the Navy had in its fleet before WWI, reduced the strength of the US Army to the manning level it had before WWII, and allowed the US Air Force to become a much smaller and older than in any time since 1947.  Instead of resigning in protest, they presided over Obama’s hallowing out of the US Armed Forces, while China, Russia, Iran, and ISIS increased and modernized their Armed Forces.  

(4) They presided over the purging of hundreds of Senior Officers, General Officers, and Flag Officers that opposed Obama’s hallowing of the US Armed Forces, and issued directives that removal of thousands of senior enlisted Non Commissioned Officers who opposed Obama’s systematic hollowing out of the US Armed Forces and his Social Experiment On Diversity, which violated their long well held traditions of service. 

(5) They allowed Obama to force the destructive “Social Experiment On Diversity” into the US Armed Forces resulting in the violation of Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, the degrading of unit cohesiveness, forced transgender recruiting, was destructive to unit moral, negatively affected unit “Combat Effectiveness”, hurt retention, and resulted in the rape of 11,000 straight males by gays in the US Armed Forces in a one year period.

(6) Obama’s directives are now forcing women into tip of the spear combat hardened units such as US Marine Corps Infantry, US Navy SEAL Teams, the Delta Force, the Green Berets, and US Army Ranger Battalions by degrading the physical fitness qualifications for those commands.   

(7) For nearly 7 years, the new slate of Politically Correct Flag and General Officers promoted by Obama, to take the place of Flag and General Officers removed from active duty for opposing the hollowing out of the US Armed Forces and opposed Obama’s Social Experiment On Diversity, are now implementing the “Climate Change” directives into all levels of command throughout the US Armed Forces.

(8) Obama recently turned his back on 70 years of close relations with friendly Sunni allies in the Middle East (Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Bahrein), by executing a Nuclear Weapons Agreement (approved by the Republican-led Congress) that Obama and Hillary negotiated with Iran (the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, who have been killing and maiming thousands Americans for over 40 years).  That agreement is allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons and ICBM missiles that can strike the US.  As part of the agreement, Obama gave Iran $150 billion in frozen assets, some of which, even Secretary of State Kerry admitted, will be used to sponsor terrorism.  

(9) In a White House Rose Garden Ceremony, Obama shamelessly announced the exchange of a US Army deserter, Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, USA, for five four-star Taliban General equivalents, who will soon be leading Radical Islamic Terrorists on the battlefield in Afghanistan to attack and kill US military personnel.  Members of Congress are now alleging ransoms were paid to affect Begdahl’s release.  One might term that dastardly action as aiding and abetting enemies of the United States.

(10) Obama is urging Congress to approve the closing of the Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and allow the transfer of the remaining detainees to the US, in order to try them in U.S (which would give them the same Constitutional protection that US citizens have).  LTG Thomas G. McInerney, USMA ‘59, USAF (Ret), who rose to the third highest position in the US Air Force, said the US can’t be safer when 30 percent of the Radical Islamic Terrorist detainees released from Gitmo return to radical groups and continue their efforts to kill Americans, and that closing Gitmo would be a big mistake.  “They’re beheading people because of their radical ideology of Radical Islam, the Quran, the Hadith, and Shariah law,” he said. “That’s what motivates those people, not because they’ve got people in Gitmo.  If you're (Radical Islamic Terrorists) caught on the battlefield, then you should be treated appropriately.  We didn't let the German and Japanese POWs go before the end of World War II, did we?  We ought to keep them there for the rest of their lives or until the war is over.  We should not be releasing any of them."  LTG McInerney said, "What kind of president do we have that is basically aiding and abetting the enemy?" (WND.com 2/24/16)

Obama has been free from exposure of the above unpatriotic actions designed to destabilize the US Armed Forces, because the left of center liberal media establishment is not doing its job of investigative journalism and because his newly promoted Flag and General Officers have kept quiet, so they wouldn’t get summarily relieved, while they continue to quietly witness the degrading of the strength and “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces.  The US Congress has had the authority and power of the purse to oppose Obama’s very dangerous directives designed to degrade the strength of the US Armed Forces by acting on their Constitutional authority in Article 1., Section 8, Clause 14 of the US Constitution "To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the Land and Naval Forces;" to oppose Obama’s destructive military policies.

 

Obama continues to tell the American people, that “Climate Change” is the most dangerous threat facing the Republic, and that it is not the aggressiveness of China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, the Islamic State, and Radical Islamic Terrorism.  He continues with one directive after another, like this most recent “Climate Change” directive to degrade the strength of the US Armed Forces.  The “Climate Change” directive is sapping the energy of personnel at all levels of the US Armed Forces, when they should be training to defend the Republic, and preparing for combat with ISIS.  Please read Admiral Lyons below listed article on the subject.

How to further degrade military effectiveness
The president’s climate change order makes war fighting harder
By James A. Lyons - - Monday, February 15, 2016

When you want to take a country down, the first thing you do is weaken its military. That's why "sequestration" turned out to be the perfect storm for the Obama administration. It provided the legal basis — actually, an excuse, as in "the budget made me do it" — for the unilateral disarmament of our military forces. Consequently, our forces have been degraded to levels not seen since prior to World War II, and in the Navy's case, not since before World War I. It should be remembered that sequestration was an Obama administration initiative.

Compounding this disastrous situation, with all the instability and challenges we face throughout the world, our once-proud and uncontested military forces have also been subjected to debilitating social engineering directives. This is being done under the mantle of "diversity." These include the removal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"; forcing women into all combat roles, including our Special Forces and Navy SEALs; and the integration of "transgender" personnel into the military. None of these directives enhance readiness or capability. Of course, the restricted Rules of Engagement our soldiers are forced to observe is another factor leading to the destruction of our military capability and effectiveness, as well as adding to the unnecessary loss of military lives.

The net effect has been to not only undermine the moral fiber of our military, but to adversely affect unit integrity, cohesiveness and most importantly, the "will to win." We most recently saw an example of this with the capture of our two 47-foot heavily armed Riverine Command Boats in the Persian Gulf on Jan. 12 by two lightly armed Iranian center console craft. "Humiliation" describes it best. This was the darkest day for the U.S. Navy since the North Korean capture of the USS Pueblo.

Another directive that will adversely affect combat readiness and effectiveness is the recent Executive Order 13653, which directs all government agencies, including the Department of Defense, to prepare for the "impacts of climatic change." The department last issued a broad directive on climate change in July 2015. President Obama has once again declared that climate change is our No. 1 national security threat. There is no doubt Russia, China, Iran and ISIS will certainly reinforce that view.

Consequently, the Pentagon has ordered all commanders down to the tactical unit level to incorporate "climate change" into every aspect of military operations, including combat, intelligence and surveillance, exercises, testing, procurement and whole hosts of other related areas, which are ill-defined. Mind-boggling.

The undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics wrote the directive, which was approved by the Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert O. Work. It is understood that this directive provides numerous orders to service secretaries and the Joint Chiefs of Staff on how the strategy to counter climate change is to be incorporated into current war plans, operational plans and operation orders. What the secretary should have already known is that our operational planners always factor in climate and prevailing seasonal weather conditions, including all aspects of terrain. The single objective is winning — not satisfying some faculty-lounge, ill-conceived logic on debatable climate change.

Further, the directive orders a new layer of bureaucracy to include a wide array of "climate change boards, councils, and working groups" to ensure climate change is integrated into all programs, plan and policies. With the bloated bureaucracy we already have, we certainly cannot afford another one, particularly with the tight budget crisis we have.

Let's face facts: military planners and operators must deal in reality. That reality is based on how to "win" wars with the least possible loss of life and protect this great nation's security. Factoring "climate change" into our operational plans and orders makes no sense and is only going to add another layer of confusion and distraction from the principal objective of "winning."

The claim by climate change proponents that there will be more frequent or severe weather events requiring substantial involvement by Department of Defense units is not supported by the U.N.'s most recent global warming predictions. Nonetheless, our military forces have shown over many decades that they are ready and capable to respond to any humanitarian crisis. There is no military in the world better than that of the United States for "projecting humanity." Fortunately, even though diminished, we still have the capability to project power.

The climate change proponents are cut from the same cloth as the social engineers who have never served in the military and never will, and who will never bear any of the responsibilities of the negative impact they have forced on our military forces. They particularly ignore the unnecessary military casualties suffered as a result of these ill-conceived directives. The Joint Chiefs of Staff should continue to take a strong position against these debilitating directives, which adversely affect our military forces' readiness and capabilities. Nothing less is accept

Cong Chris Gibson, Col-USA (Ret) Co-Sponsored House Bill to Halt Drawdown of US Army and US Marine Corps

By Capt Joseph R. John, on February 23, 2016

An endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, Cong Chris Gibson, Col-USA (Ret) (R-NY-20) co-sponsored a House Bill with Cong Mike Turner (R-OH-10) that will halt the Obama administration’s plans to drawdown the end strength of the US Army and the US Marine Corps.  The bill will actually increase the strength of the US Army by 55,000 personnel.  

“The assumptions have significantly changed,” Cong Gibson told reporters on Wednesday, adding later: “Stay tuned, in the very near future we’re going to have some legislative action come forward, but we think it’s essential … that this drawdown needs to stop, and that the next president make assessments of what the proper level of land forces should be.”

The bill would revise the Army’s planned end-strength goal from 980,000 to 1,035,000, for a total that falls slightly below the Army's pre-Sept. 11, 2001 troop levels, according to Cong Gibson’s spokesman.  The House Bill would also call for Marine Corps end-strength to fall no lower than 184,000.

After Congressional hearing on troop strength, Cong Gibson appeared with Cong Turner at an impromptu press conference where both lawmakers decried the ongoing military drawdown by the Obama administration.  Cong Gibson stated the world is less safe than it was when the Obama administration announced troop cuts, pointing to threats from the Islamic State, Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.  

Key Republican lawmakers have decried the Army’s drawdown plans, and in July, when details were first made public, another endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, (R-AZ-Senate), blasted the force cuts as budget driven.

House Bill Would Halt US Army, Marine Drawdowns

UPDATE: This story, originally published Feb. 10, was updated to include details about the bill's sponsorship and to correct the bill's end-strength target.

WASHINGTON — Two lawmakers on the House Armed Services Committee plan to introduce legislation Thursday to stop ongoing drawdowns for the Army and Marine Corps, potentially adding 55,000 soldiers back into Army plans.

Rep. Chris Gibson, R-N.Y., said Wednesday that his bipartisan bill would, if approved, stop the drawdown. He argued the world is less safe than it was when the Obama administration announced the troop cuts, pointing to threats from the Islamic State group, Russia, China and North Korea.

“The assumptions have significantly changed,” Gibson told reporters on Wednesday, adding later: “Stay tuned, in the very near future we’re going to have some legislative action come forward, but we think it’s essential … that this drawdown needs to stop, and that the next president make assessments of what the proper level of land forces should be.”

The chairman of the House Tactical Air Land subcommittee, Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, is co-sponsoring the bill with Gibson.

The bill would revise the Army’s planned end-strength goal from 980,000 to 1,035,000, for a total that falls slightly below the Army's pre-Sept. 11, 2001 troop levels, according to a Gibson spokesman. It would also call for Marine Corps end-strength to fall no lower than 184,000.

The Army plans to reduce its force to 980,000 by 2018, including a drop from 32 to 30 brigade combat teams and other force structure changes. Troop levels would fall from 475,000 active soldiers in fiscal 2016 to 460,000 in 2017 and 450,000 in 2018. The National Guard would fall from 342,000 to 335,000 in 2017 with no reductions planned beyond that. The Army Reserve would fall from 198,000 to 195,000 .

For the Marine Corps, which planned to drawdown to 182,000 by the end of fiscal 2017, the proposed bill would in essence add back 2,000 troops. The Marine Corps drawdown to 182,000 is expected to be complete in October.

The Army estimated its reductions of about 40,000 troops would save $7 billion over four years, officials said when they were announced in July. The reduced troop levels were attributed to mandatory spending caps under the 2011 Budget Control Act.

A top Army budget official said Thursday any major changes in end-strength would complicate budgetary planning, with a ripple effect throughout its school houses, missions, recruiting and retention plans, and particularly its force structure.

“We’ve tried to align our end strength and our force structure, so depending upon if there was some kind of a change of sizable magnitude, then we would probably be looking at our force structure and the decision we made there, as well,” Maj. Gen. Thomas Horlander, the Army budget director, told reporters Wednesday.

Members of the Commission on the Future of the Army testified at a hearing of the House Tactical Air Land subcommittee that 980,000 is their recommended minimum for Army end-strength, though that number should grow if available funding or global threats increase.

Asked by the commission’s chief said he would stop the drawdown if Congress had the money to make it a reality.

“I believe to do so would be wise, and it would afford the Army the ability to gain some of those capabilities that are in shortfall,” said retired Army Gen. Carter Ham. “This is not just about the size — the size is important — but they must be properly modernized, trained and resourced.”

In a major war overseas, at 980,000 soldiers, the Army would not have enough troops to provide them with “dwell time,” the rotation home which has been common in recent conflicts.

“In a full-scale mobilization, a commitment to a large-scale operation in any future theater of war, at the size of the Army that is anticipated, there is no dwell time,” Ham said. “For the most part they deploy and they are committed for the duration.”

After the hearing, Turner appeared with Gibson at an impromptu press conference where both lawmakers decried the ongoing military drawdown.

“If the next president of the United States comes in and tries to restore the cuts to the Army, it will be a full three years before the Army is fully capable again; that would be the president’s whole first term,” Turner said. “We certainly can’t predict what threats the president might have to face. It’s important we follow through and stop this drawdown.”

The remarks came a day after the White House released its 2017 budget proposal, which for the Pentagon includes a $523.9 billion base budget and $58.8 billion wartime budget. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, Turner and other House lawmakers are arguing for more for defense.

Turner said Wednesday that he had met with House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, R-Ga., to discuss the matter.

“Chairman Price has heard from both current and former members of the military that the drawdown of the Army is of concern, and he is very much aware that this is something we need to look at, how we put together resources to stop it,” Turner said.

Key Republican lawmakers have decried the Army’s drawdown plans, and in July, when details were first made public, Thornberry and Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., blasted the force cuts as budget driven.

In January, Eric Fanning, the presidential nominee to become the next US Army secretary, vowed at his Senate confirmation hearing that he would review the Army cuts.
