Obama waives ban on
arming terrorists to allow
aid to Syrian opposition

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 9/17/2013 10:12:26 AM

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad´s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah. The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40

Obama does what he wants, when he wants because thus far the MSM will not call him on anything and that in turn freezes the GOP in place.

Expect things to change only when the GOP attains power again and the MSM will once again find their orbs.

Yesterday - all the talk about gun violence and the need to disarm Americans.

Today - Obama is arming Syrian terrorists.

Is the rule now that only Muslim terrorists are allowed to have guns?

#6: Bingo. Both actions are huge, but juxtaposed, the revelation and the implicit message are much bigger. Arm the monsters, disarm the good. Only evil can work for that. But thanks for "posting my post" for me.

#5: Why should we "send humanitarian aid"? Why aren´t those famous "1-billion-plus ´moderate Muslims´" in the world flooding Syria with humanitarian aid? Clamoring to take in refugees?? For that matter, why aren´t they flooding Syria with "peacekeeping troops"?

#7: Let´s ask Huma. She has connections, and now that "Carlo´s" mayoral campaign is over, she has spare time to discuss it.

#13: Yep. Your concluding line shows you´ve got it figured out.

#14: There´s already been an F&F 2. It was in some Caribbean country IIRC. News came out about the same time, but with no media notice, it disappeared.

So obama is going to arm the rebels? I think not. He´s going to make the American taxpayer foot the bill.

So here´s the way I understand it - the "rebels" are the Muslim Brotherhood which is friendly to Saudi Arabia. Assad is friendly to SA´s mortal enemy, Iran. The Saudis want us to protect them from their enemies. Nevermind that SA´s friends incinerated over 3k Americans.

So maybe now the jerk bowing to the SA King makes more sense - especially since from what we know the Saudis paid for zero´s degrees.

Sellout, traitor, Manchurian Candidate, whatever you call him the man belongs in prison and not in our once beloved White House.

The traitorous evil that resides in our White House will stop at nothing to weaken conservative, GOD fearing, gun loving America which is its only stated enemy and the only force left in the world keeping freedom and liberty alive.

The demon Muslim brother and Islamofacist (militant Islam, I now believe and by its very definition, is the anti-Christ) wants WWIII and then to declare Marshall law to achieve its master´s desire to destroy GOD´s good works and bring equal misery upon the whole world.

Principalities are at work here but, there is one fatal flaw in the evil entity´s plan: GOD cannot and will never be defeated.

We must now stand and protest in mass to awaken those who are still asleep. It is time time choose sides then get on our knees and pray!

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” Thursday, turning up the rhetorical heat on the already tense situation at the Nevada cattle operation. “Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.” The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012

President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
