House passes bill to fully fund Homeland Security
by Sean Sullivan
The House passed a bill Tuesday afternoon to fund the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of the fiscal year, sending it to President Obama for his expected signature. The measure will not target Obama’s executive actions on immigration, giving Democrats what they have long demanded and potentially enraging conservatives bent on fighting the president on immigration.
The vote was 257-167, with some Republicans joining all Democrats who voted to pass the bill, which had already cleared the Senate.
Gosh, what did Boehner say once the GOP had the House and the Senate? Something similar to “we won’t let amnesty pass”? Or words to that effect?
Boehner caved. The GOP caved.
My, the GOP winning both the House and Senate, that was truly a wonderful thing, was it not? How the GOP would now swoop in and right wrongs?
I wrote quite some years ago about the GOP, and I repeat: “the best predictor of future behavior is past performance, or the lack thereof.”

Yesterday, terrorists threatened to “behead” Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie if she did not help “introduce sharia law in Australia.”
To her credit, Lambie had recently called for the introduction of the death penalty for terrorists and had been quoted as saying: “If you don’t like our Australian law… then pack your bags and… leave. We will never bow down to sharia law.”
The police do not yet know whether this death threat was sent by Jihadists or by opponents of a planned mosque.
Australia is part of the core group coalition against ISIS, which consists of the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Turkey, Italy, Poland, and Denmark.
And here’s the history in Australia — a history you might think left Australia alone, but no.
Jihad has been building for years in Australia. In 1998, a Sydney police station was shot at by four Arabs. In 2004, a Lebanese-Australian told a reporter that he “wanted to undertake a terror attack in Sydney in the name of Islam.”
According to Australian terrorism researcher Andrew Zammitt, in 2003, thirteen Melbourne men and nine Sydney men were arrested and charged with forming two different cells to prepare attacks. Eighteen were convicted. These arrests suggested that Australians had become “newly radicalized” post 9/11.
In 2005, hundreds of Australian women at the beach were harassed by angry, offended Muslims. Two hundred such men thereafter smashed hundreds of cars and windows, bashed several people and threatened women with rape.
In the summer of 2014, when Israel was self-defensively trying to eradicate the diabolical terror tunnels in Gaza, a convoy of cars drove through Sydney, brandishing the black flag of ISIS. Some chanted: “Jew and Christian will not stand. You can never stop Islam.”
Does this mark the point with which Australia will begin to take a more active role in squashing Islamists in that country?
Mark my words. The stories are coming and not stopping. One more:
“I have had many Arab patients. I tell them I am German. Many praised me because Hitler was German and did ‘such a great job with the Jews.’ At a clinic, a Muslim reception clerk often greeted me with Heil Hitler, arm extended, and a smile. He thought I was an Aryan German. A young man, whom Australian Jews had helped, confided in me, saying that ‘Islam is going to take over the world as the fastest growing religion. Even in Australia.’ One of my Australian patients complained that he was harassed and bullied on the street by Arabs, shouting, ‘we are going to take over your f**king country.’ Someone who had been a member of Hezbollah, wanted me to write a letter for him to the Prime Minister so he would not be deported. When I declined, he grabbed me by the neck and threatened me.”
I wrote two years ago that I saw a young female in a Full Beekeeper’s costume in the Barnes & Noble bookstore (now closed) in Elk Grove, CA.
Islam is here in the United States and it is not a peaceful religion as practiced. Islam is as Islam does, no more, no less. Those practicioners of Islam who do not or have not or refuse to kill know full well that there are others who will, in their name and in the name of their shared religion.
A religion that is far from normal. A religion that is, in truth, nothing more than a death cult.
Islam = Borg.
Convert or die.
Because IsraelNationalNews.com says:
by Mark Langfan
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Obama was going to shoot down military jets belonging to the only stable country in the entire Middle East, those of Israel — a nation that has been a friend of the United States for many years.
Is it just me, or does this not border on insane? Why would Mr Obama stop the Israelis from defending themselves as Iran does its level best to develop nuclear programs — not for “study” or for “power,” but solely for conversion to offensive weapons?
Once developed, how long would it take for Iran to somehow “allow” one or several of those nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of ISIS or the Muslim Brotherhood or al Qaeda or Hamas or Hezbollah — either by “mistake” or purposely?
Please allow me to ask one simple question that I have yet to see the so-called Mainstream Media ask, a question no one seems willing pose:
With all the oil under its feet, why does Iran seem hell-bent upon developing nuclear power? Iran doesn’t physically need nuclear power or its programs. It could create tens or even hundreds of oil-fired energy production facilities around its nation, so that it could have guaranteed electric power damned near in perpetuity.
Yet, Iran cries that it must have nuclear programs in order to provide for its people. I call bullshit on that.
It’s an excuse, and a poor one at that. Read on:
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army’s chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel’s security.”
Check, please, the physical proximity between Iran and Israel:
Clearly, Obama was raised by Communists and Muslims. Read this if you doubt me. There isn’t a Jew anywhere is Obama’s past; instead, his formative years were filled with Muslims in Indonesia and Communists.
The only Caucasoids he admired were Saul Alinsky (oddly enough, quantified as a “community organizer” by Wikipedia and the sole Jew that Obama admired), Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.
Relations between Israel and Barack Hussein Obama have always been rocky. I believe this is because Mr Obama sympathizes with Muslims and disdains Jews. This is in consideration of his upbringing and his education, amongst other things.
On Tuesday, Benjamin Netanyahu will speak before the US Congress, having been invited by John Boehner. The Spite House is doing everything possible to scandalize and minimize this speech.
I wonder: is it because Mr Netanyahu intends to reveal and lend credence to Obama’s plan to down Israel’s aircraft? Will Netanyahu accuse the Spite House of disallowing Israel to defend herself?
Ultimately, just what is the purpose behind Barack Hussein Obama choosing Iran over Israel in the Middle East?
Now that the Obama Leftists have the GOP right where they want them, dangling at the end of an erectile-dysfunctional leash, what might be a major reason the FCC won’t release the 322-page document? Why is it so secret? Why so serious?
I was thinking: if I were the Obama-run FCC and I wanted to help throttle the internet and begin the systematic removal of our First Amendment (Obama is already working on that pesky Second Amendment), what would I do?
I know. I’d place within those regulations a return to the Fairness Doctrine, and I would apply said doctrine to the internet. I’d apply it to blogs, I’d slather it like warm butter all over the web.
Takers on the bet?
