Bully Obama's most memorable moment

"If you like having no say about how our country is governed, be sure to vote Democratic in November.If you like “men” masquerading as “women” in your little girl’s public restroom, be sure to vote Democratic in November.If you can’t wait to find out what the next “rights” movement is all about, be sure to vote Democratic in November."

Joseph Farah  "I got a letter from Barack Obama last weekend.
"Maybe you got it, too.
"It came on the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court edict mandating same-sex marriage.
“ 'One of the most memorable moments of my presidency was one year ago today, on a warm summer night, when we lit up the White House in the colors of the rainbow flag,” he wrote. “It was hours after the Supreme Court had ruled that love is love, and all marriages would be equal under the law.”
"Well, not exactly accurate.
"Not all marriages would be equal under the law. Obama’s constituency will never be satisfied.
"Marriage is still oddly an institution only for couples.
"Isn’t that “discriminatory”?
"Is that an oversight? Or is it the next target?
"Or maybe that will come after people get the “right” to marry animals or inanimate objects.
"Maybe it sounds like I’m being bigoted, narrow-minded or flippant.
"I’m not. There are Americans demanding each and every one of those “rights.” We have chronicled them in WND. It’s no joke.
"It shows that there is no end to the madness, no end to the kinds of “discrimination” the so-called “progressives” like Obama will continue to fight. It’s what empowers them – not actually making life better for America, but simply remaining in constant commotion and agitation.
"Once a community organizer, always a community organizer." . . .

Conservative Daily News "This nation was founded by men who wrote a document that established the rule of law to ensure equal opportunity for all, the Constitution of the United States of America.   Barak Obama and nearly all members of Congress ignore every article of that document, the second greatest document ever written. Our Constitution stands second only to the Word of God, the Holy Bible, in importance in world history. Obama rules by edict, called executive orders, and Congress violates the oath of office that pledged them to uphold the provisions of our founding document yet they get reelected about 95% of the time. Treason and corruption by those in office is epidemic and our freedoms are merely words without meaning because the Constitution is only given occasional lip service by the political ruling class and We the People do nothing. The reelection rate is a travesty that would have our founding fathers spinning in their graves. The election process is a scam, totally controlled by one world government elitists who set themselves up as omnipotent rulers answering only to themselves rather than answering to the Constitution and We the People." 

Escape Tunnel, Dug by Hand, Is Found at Holocaust Massacre Site (Updated)

NY Times  via Drudge

"Jewish forced laborers dug a tunnel from this holding pit near Vilnius, Lithuania, into the surrounding forest. A team of archaeologists and mapmakers say they have uncovered a forgotten tunnel that 80 Jews dug largely by hand as they tried to escape from a Nazi extermination site in Lithuania about 70 years ago. 
"The Lithuanian site, Ponar, holds mass burial pits and graves where up to 100,000 people were killed and their bodies dumped or burned during the Holocaust.
"Using radar and radio waves to scan beneath the ground, the researchers found the tunnel, a 100-foot passageway between five and nine feet below the surface, the team announced on Wednesday.
"A previous attempt made by a different team in 2004 to find the underground structure had only located its mouth, which was subsequently left unmarked. The new finding traces the tunnel from entrance to exit and provides evidence to support survivor accounts of the harrowing effort to escape the holding pit. 
“ 'What we were able to do was not only solve one of the greatest mysteries and escape stories of the Holocaust,” said Richard Freund, an archaeologist from the University of Hartford in Connecticut and one of the team leaders. " . . .

"Progressives are happily dancing atop the graves of our Benghazi dead following the final House Select Committee 800-page report on what went wrong and who is to blame.

"In a nutshell, it seems that everything went wrong, and the entire incident was the almost unavoidable outcome of policy failures, bureaucratic mismanagement and miscommunication, dismal understanding of the situation in Libya, gross underestimation of necessary security to protect Americans, and general fumbduckery. Meaning that no one - especially Hillary in the Left's estimation - is to blame because the entire system failed at every level.

"For Progressives, this means that Hillary is now cleared and qualified to become president of the United States, an office from which she can give every citizen the same level of protection she provided for the fallen in Benghazi." . . .

Report: Obama Skipped Intelligence Briefing the Day After Benghazi Attacks

obamaAlex Griswold  According to the upcoming report from the House Benghazi Committee, President Barack Obama skipped his personal daily intelligence briefing the day after the 2012 Benghazi attacks.
 . . . " According to the Executive Coordinator tasked with delivering the daily briefings, she first delivered the briefing to White House chief of staff Jack Lew. But instead of giving Obama a briefing, she gave the folder to a White House usher.
"That day’s briefing contained a sentence claiming “the presence of armed assailants from the outset suggests this was an intentional assault and not the escalation of a peaceful protest.”  . . .
"Previous reports indicate that skipping the briefing is not necessarily unusual for the president, and that he only attends roughly 40% of his intelligence briefings.  . . .
"Obama’s activities during and after the attack have long been a matter of mystery, with the White House refusing to comment on the matter. During the 2012 presidential election, Obama was attacked by Republicans for flying to Las Vegas for a campaign fundraiser the day after the attack."

Former Navy SEAL Tej Gill, who was friends with two of the Americans who were killed in the Benghazi attack, says that Hillary Clinton “killed my friends.”
In an interview on SiriusXM radio on Tuesday, Gill told host Stephen Bannon about his bumper stickers with the statement “Hillary Clinton killed my friends” that have “gone viral” among those in the SEAL community.

Democrats: "Most Progressive Platform Our Party Has Ever Seen"

Doug Ross Journal  . . . "Those are words spoken by Hillary Clinton’s senior policy advisor about the draft of the Democratic Party platform and they should frighten every American that supports free enterprise and a restrained federal government. The platform draft approved by the Democratic drafting committee consisting of both Clinton and Sanders allies includes proposals that will make it more difficult for individuals to break free from government constraints and achieve the American Dream.
"There are many dangerous proposals in the Democratic Party’s platform that should raise concern:
  • A $15 minimum wage, including one for tipped workers, will force businesses to slash jobs, shift to automation, and put companies out of business
  • Burdensome regulations will make companies subservient to the government and prevent them from expanding.
  • Massive new spending on government programs that won’t be paid for and will substantially increase the national debt.
"In addition, Sanders allies proposed some costly ideas that were just a vote away from becoming part of the platform and will no doubt be under consideration in a Democratic administration. Those include:
  • An unaffordable national energy tax on Americans that will increase costs across the board and make it tougher for families to make ends meet.
  • Going further than ObamaCare and implementing a one-size fits all single-payer system controlled solely by the government.
  • Labeling Israel for causing an “occupation” and saying that they have “illegal settlements” in the Gaza strip.
"These policy prescriptions are threatening, not only to conservatives but for the country as a whole. They represent a sharp left turn in favor of policies that radically expands the size of government and continues to restrict freedoms of individuals across the country."

The Benghazi report

PJ Media: Benghazi Report: Obama Administration Failed to Protect Americans in Benghazi

. . . "The report also concluded that Hillary Clinton and other administration officials pushed the video explanation for Benghazi despite knowing the truth because eyewitness accounts were immediately available.
"Republicans on the committee charge that Clinton and the State Department acted in a "shameful" manner in refusing to hand over requested emails from her private email server and pointed out that President Barack Obama skipped his daily intelligence briefing one day after the attacks.
"The report also said that the investigation by the so-called Accountability Review Board was tainted by the influence of Clinton's former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills." . . .

Select Committee releases Benghazi report
But the analysis includes new facts sure to be seized upon by the administration’s critics, and which are likely to serve as points of attack against Clinton during the general election.
Via Lucianne : Judicial Watch Statement on House Benghazi Report
“The Select Committee report further confirms what Judicial Watch already uncovered through its independent investigations.  Our investigation continues, as the Clinton email obstruction of our Benghazi FOIA lawsuit is the subject of court-ordered discovery.  This report proves beyond all doubt that after four Americans died in Benghazi, the Obama administration lied.  While we appreciate the Select Committee’s efforts, Judicial Watch’s Benghazi effort has been one of the most significant non-government investigations in modern American history.”
GOP Benghazi report charges Obama-Clinton did nothing to save lives   
— The administration broke its promise to bring those responsible to justice. Now four years after the attack, only one person has been arrested and was brought to America before proper interrogation took place.
— The administration never had a sincere interest in helping the Committee and working with us to find the truth. It was politics, deceit and deception.

Democrats, LGBT activists’ sinister plan to crack down on Christian schools

Are there no tolerant, patriotic Democrats out there anywhere?

Todd Starnes

"If California Democrats have their way, Christian colleges and universities will no longer be allowed to require students attend chapel services or require them to profess a relationship with Jesus Christ.
"Senate Bill 1146 would close a loophole that lawmakers say allows Christian universities to discriminate against students based on their gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.
“ 'All students deserve to feel safe in institutions of higher education, regardless of whether they are public or private,” said Senator Ricardo Lara, the author of the legislation. “California has established strong protections for the LGBTQ community and private universities should not be able to use faith as an excuse to discriminate and avoid complying with state laws.”
"The legislation has already passed the Senate and is expected to clear hurdles in the Assembly. Thus far, Lara has refused to compromise with the state’s Christian colleges and universities." . . .

EU's tantrum; Brexit as seen by Angela Merkel


Post-Brexit: What's next?  "In practical and rhetorical terms, this means a vote for nationalism, independence, and border security.  Consequently, this means a vote against globalism, Brussels’s bureaucracy, and immigration.  It means also a vote for true freedom of speech, individualism, and assimilationism and, consequently, a vote against political correctness, establishment, and multiculturalism."

Rick Moran: Another EU tantrum: No more English!  "The petulant children who run the European Union have been throwing epic tantrums since the Brexit vote, looking to punish and humiliate Great Britain for disobeying them.  They refuse to meet representatives of the British government informally to discuss how the mechanism of an EU exit can be implemented.  EU president Juncker haughtily questioned why members of the UKIP party were attending a meeting of the EU parliament to discuss Britain's exit ("Why are you here"?).
"Now it's been proposed that since Britain is leaving the EU, English, the official language, be dropped." . . .

Why hasn't Trump said anything about the Supreme Court's new abortion case?

Ann Althouse   "Hillary tweeted right away: "SCOTUS's decision is a victory for women in Texas and across America. Safe abortion should be a right—not just on paper, but in reality. -H" and "This fight isn't over: The next president has to protect women's health. Women won't be 'punished' for exercising their basic rights. -H" And Trump hasn't tweeted anything.Josh Voorhees (at Slate) says "The obvious answer is that Trump is either unwilling or unable to quickly sum up his thoughts on a topic that he has expressed so many conflicting views on in the past and that has caused him so many problems in the present...."

"Another obvious answer is: Gender politics isn't his thing. He only talks about abortion when pushed or when attacked."

Red Democrats: Meet The Communists And Socialists On The Dems Platform Drafting Committee

Noisy Room  Several communists and radical anti-American socialists now serve on the influential Democratic Party Platform Drafting Committee.
Democrats_Communist_Donkey_01_220pxNone of them covertly infiltrated their way onto this important body. All were appointed at the request of Bernie SandersHillary Clinton or at the discretion of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Many of those appointed have been involved with Democratic Socialists of America, which despite its name is a communist group based on the theories of Italian Communist party theoretician Antonio Gramsci – an advocate of revolution through infiltration. Others come from more traditionally communist groups.

. . . "Wasserman Schultz picks include:
"Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), a longtime associate of Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA. In 1993, Lee, then a Democratic California State Assembly member, was a secret member of the Committees of Correspondence, a Communist Party breakaway organization. She has been to communist Cuba more than 20 times."
. . . 
"Most of these individuals could not pass an FBI background security check to sell you stamps at the Post Office. They would not be allowed to clean the toilets on any military base in this country. Yet they are drafting policies that will shape the lives of more than 300 million Americans."
"It is time for loyal Democrats* to realize that their party is no longer the party of Harry Truman, or JFK. It has been hijacked at the highest levels by enemies of the US Constitution and American freedom."
*Are there any?
