Obama's National Security Advisor went to Israel to convince Israelis not to strike Iran's nuclear facilities
From: Jihad Watch
President Barack Obama's National Security Advisor Tom Donilon visited Israel secretly over the weekend in what one Israeli newspaper says was an attempt to convince Israel not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
He met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and National Security Advisor Gen. Yaakov Amidror.
"National Security Advisor Tom Donilon visited Israel from July 14-15 for consultations with Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Barak, and National Security Advisor Gen. Amidror," the White House said in an official statement Sunday.
"In these meetings, the National Security Advisor reaffirmed the United States' unwavering commitment to Israel's security. His visit was the latest in a series of ongoing U.S. consultations with Israeli officials on a range of regional security issues."
Maariv-NRG says Donilon's visit reflects heightened U.S. concern that Israel intends to attack Iran sometime during the summer or early autumn. That concern has been heightened by the recent failure of talks between western powers and Iran. The news site estimated that the visit was intended to convince Israel not to launch an attack anytime soon....
Israel would prefer the U.S. to lead an attack on Iran instead of facing it alone. An Israeli attack could have unforseen consequences on the volatile Middle East, and a U.S.-led strike is seen as something Arab regimes will accept slightly more easily. In any case, repercussions against Israel are expected....
'Photon torpedoes' target Mitt VP picks
Director of 'Star Trek' joins Soros, unions to slam GOP choices
by Aaron Klein
American Bridge so far has focused its ire on former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
ABC News.com featured a lengthy profile on American Bridge’s new VeepMistake.com website, yet the news article failed to mention that the superPAC was founded by Brock and grew out of Media Matters.
White House staffers reportedly have held regular meetings with Media Matters, which recently came under fire for unusual tactics, including compiling a de facto enemies list; announcing an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel; and reportedly seeking to investigate the personal lives of targeted reporters and news personalities.
Now WND has reviewed American Bridge’s donor list. Included is Abrams, who gave $37,500 to Brock’s superPAC last June.
Abrams is best known for creating the television series “Alias” and “Lost” and directing such movies as “Mission: Impossible III”, “Star Trek,” and “Super 8.” Abrams is also a top Obama campaign donor.
Other American Bridge donors for the fiscal year of 2011 include the National Education Association, SEIU and AFL-CIO labor unions with $100,000 each.
Soros donated $1 million to the superPAC.
Wrote Brock: “Thanks to investments by progressive leaders like Mr. Soros, we have been able to build a cutting edge organization that we will continue to build upon in order to keeping providing effective and efficient services to the progressive movement.”
Media Matters tied to MoveOn.org, ACORN
Brock’s Media Matters is also tied to financing from Soros and the radical left, including a group that funds MoveOn.org and financed ACORN.
WND reported how one of the single largest donors to the embattled Media Matters for America is a controversial far-left clearinghouse that funds groups such as MoveOn.org, ACORN and a litany of anti-war organizations.
The organization in question, the Tides Foundation, is funded in part by Soros, himself a prominent Media Matters donor.
Tides functions as a money tunnel in which major leftist donors provide large sums that are channeled to hundreds of radical groups.
Tides documentation reviewed by WND shows the group provided a total of $4.1 million to Media Matters during the fiscal years of 2004-2009.
During that same time period, Tides provided an additional $110,000 to the Media Matters Action Network, the group’s affiliated progressive lobby.
The Tides Foundation funding to Media Matters was most significant during the progressive news organization’s startup year in 2004, when Tides granted it $2.2 million.
In 2005, Tides sent another $1.1 million to Media Matters.
The years 2006 and 2007 saw smaller Tides donations of $56,223 and $38,225 respectively.
In 2008, a significant Tides donation of $659,500 came in to Media Matters, with another $106,038 in 2009.
In 2010, the Tides Center expressed public support for Media Matters when the media group stepped up its activism against Fox News by posting a webpage dedicated to anti-Fox material along with an online petition that pressed Fox’s advertisers to “Drop Fox.” At the time, Tides chief executive and founder, Drummond Pike, endorsed Media Matters’ campaign.
Media Matters already admitted to taking $1 million directly from Soros. The billionaire has donated more than $7 million to Tides over the years.
WND’s revelation of Tides donations to Media Matters may raise more questions about the partiality of media group. Tides is one of the biggest financial backers of progressive and radical left groups in the U.S.
For example, Tides is a primary funder to ACORN and is closely tied to the group implicated in voter fraud. The Tides Center’s Board Chairman is Wade Rathke, ACORN’s founder and chief organizer.
Tides also is a primary funder to MoveOn.org, the American Civil Liberties Union, Campaign for America’s Future, the Center for American Progress, the Center for Community Change, the socialist-leaning Democracy Now!, the Marxist-founded Free Press and Marxist-oriented Institute for Policy Studies.
Tides recently has been closely linked to Occupy since the anti-Wall Street movement’s inception. The Tides-funded Adbusters magazine is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy’s planning.
The Tides-funded Ruckus Society has been providing direct-action training to Occupy protesters as well as official training resources, including manuals, to Occupy training groups. Ruckus, which helped spark the 1999 World Trade Organization riots in Seattle, was also listed as a “friend and partner” of the Occupy Days of Action in October.
Another grantee of Tides, MoveOn.org, has joined Occupy.
Media Matters has been facing closer scrutiny after a series of investigative articles by the Daily Caller highlighting questionable financial and activist practices.

Click here to go to a great site where it's 'all about Allen'...a true American patriot. Congressman Allen West is one of the very few who has the courage to call Obama to task, and while he has the courage to stand alone we have the courage to stand 'steadfast and loyal' to him and with him.
Dead dogs for Obama
Exclusive: Roger Hedgecock exposes voter registration of animals, deceased, illegals
Voter fraud is the big issue that may decide the outcome of this election.
In Seattle, Wash., last month, Brenda Charlston received a voter registration form in the mail from the Voter Participation Center with all the blanks filled in for “Rosie Charlston,” her black Labrador who died in 1998.
In June, in Buford County, Va., Tim Morris received a filled-out voter registration form for “Mozart Morris” addressed to “Mo,” his dog that passed away two years before. Again, the form came in the mail from the Voter Participation Center.
In Bernalillo County, N.M., an anonymous Republican registered his dog as a voter at a voter registration booth at the University of New Mexico to show how easy it would be to defraud the system. Election officials claim they followed the law and referred the case to state prosecutors for criminal investigation of the dog owner!
Election officials throughout the country report a surge of voter registrations from animals, dead people and noncitizens.
Republicans believe Obama is depending on these registrations to win the election and want laws requiring voter ID at the polls. Democrats charge that Republicans are trying to suppress the vote to increase the odds of a Romney win.
This Democrat charge formed the basis of a lawsuit by Obama’s Department of Justice to block a Texas law that requires voter photo ID to vote. Texas is one of 26 states with such laws.
The DOJ claimed the requirement would bar eligible voters from voting and that the cost of getting the proper ID amounted to a “poll tax.” The Texas law provides for a free state ID to anyone lacking a driver’s license or other photo ID.
A study by a DOJ expert produced a long list of Texans who lacked government-issued photo ID and, it was alleged, were thereby disenfranchised. The list and the study were a fraud.
The list turned out to contain the names of 50,000 dead people, 330,377 seniors who can vote by mail without ID, 261,887 voters who included a driver’s license number on their voter registration form, 800,000 Texans who were, in fact, registered to vote and who did have a government issued photo ID.
The list also contained the names of Texans with U.S. military ID (acceptable for photo ID to vote), former Texas residents who had moved to other states, disabled voters who were exempt from the Texas photo ID law and noncitizens.
Strangely, the list of those who “lacked government issued ID” included former President George W. Bush, two state legislators and the wife of another, former U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm, current U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and even the Texas director of elections, Keith Ingram – who was listed not once but twice!
However, even the Texas attorney general has yet to find the names of any dogs, living or dead, on the list.
Obama’s DOJ also went after Florida for passing a similar law. It seems that Obama voters who were dead, felons or noncitizens would not get to vote.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered county election officials to examine the integrity of the voting rolls. In the first review, the names of 83,000 dead people were discovered still registered to vote.
The dead deserve representation given the estate-tax debate, but the law does not yet allow them to vote.
DOJ also objected to Florida’s insistence that felons be barred from voting.
Noncitizens were also found on the voter rolls, and Gov. Scott fought to get access to the federal Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or SAVE, database. SAVE will allow Florida to purge the voter roll of noncitizens.
In a strange, parallel world, the Obama Agriculture Department requires ID on every cow, and now on every chicken, on every American farm.
Obama wants to trace the movement of farm animals but not illegal aliens; he wants to ID every farm animal to protect the public health but does not want to ID voters to protect the integrity of elections.
With the memory still fresh that the 2000 presidential election was decided by a handful of voters in Florida, the determination of who gets to vote in 2012 could decide who will be the next president.
Democrats’Coordinated Attacks Target Allen West and Effective ConservativesBy Javier Manjarres / The Shark Tank
The Shark Tank recently reported that a George Soros-backed SuperPAC named “Dump West” was being formed to specifically target Congressman Allen West (Source-Soros SuperPAC)
Now there is talk about a new ‘SuperPAC forming, that could possibly have Islamic Fundamentalist ties. More on this later this week.
Much as they have previously done to Governor Sarah Palin, West and others, effective conservatives are taking fire from liberal activists who clearly perceive the threat that their candidacies pose. Fellow South Florida Congressional candidate Karen Harrington, has been the target of the same kind of campaign aimed at defeating Congressman West, only Soros backed SuperPAC’s are not involved, at least not yet.
The Democrat ‘Operation Chaos’
In Congressman West’s Republican primary race, Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder is suspected of being a plant, and simply in the race to try to distract and attempt to hurt West. Crowder has gone as far as to urge Democrats to switch their voter registration to Republcan, and vote for him. Crowder also supported liberal democrat Gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink in 2010, over Governor Rick Scott. (Source- Democrat Plant?)
West has been attacked with false accusations on mailers and has been the target of an active campaign to disrupt his events and meetings. This was done attempted in 2010, but West was still able to beat incumbent Democrat Congressman, Ron Klein.
In Harrington’s case, the political operatives who assisted in the leaking of the ‘Dump West’ SuperPAC memos are also suggesting that there are two Democrat-backed or actual ‘plants’ installed in Harrington’s primary race.
The goal is to split the Republican primary vote so that one of those two will either win or allow another weaker candidate to win in hopes of diminishing Harrington’s chances against Wasserman Schultz.
The two suggested candidates that are suspected as plants are Ozzie deFaria and Gineen Bresso.
deFaria has focused his attacks on Harrington with an anti-Harrington website that is completely unsubstantiated- this comes after his infamous “Dog Collar” campaign against Wasserman Schultz that was truly cringe-worthy and gave Democrats the opportunity to paint the entire GOP as misogynists and extremists. In addition, deFaria has loaned his campaign $406K of the $619K he boasts to have raised, as he has been unable to raise much money from outside contributors.
The same operatives, and now Republican officials are asking themselves how someone like deFaria, who “has a history of Domestic Violence and was arrested in 2006 for Repeat Violence and Battery would even attempt at running for Congress as a Republican.” One Romney advisor has already sounded the alarm to the National Republican Committee, and even U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has scoffed at deFaria’s candidacy. (Source-deFaria Arrest)
Gineen Bresso, the other suspected prant, is truly running a stealth campaign. Bresso is only showing $12,563 cash on hand, and she’s rarely been seen in the district not has she gained any significant traction. While Bresso seems to be a very nice woman with some promise, why is she running for Congress by avoiding media and the constituents she seeks to represent? I don’t think she is a Democrat plant, simply an ambitious politico looking to build her profile.
The Wasserman Schultz Connection
Congressman Allen West’s and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s public scuffles have attracted a great deal of attention. Wasserman Schultz’ own ‘tea party’ event in front of West’s 2010 congressional office saw the congresswoman openly insulted West by saying “he think’s it’s ok to objectify and denigrate women.” She then falsely attacked West on the floor of the House in 2011, claiming that West was increasing costs for Medicare beneficiaries. West responded in an email by calling her “vile and despicable” which in turn caused a backlash against West.
Fox News later squashed the issue when they aired a Shark Tank video from Wasserman Schultz’s event that showed her picking the fight. After all of the Sunday morning talk shows aired the video, the story died on following Monday morning.
He thinks it’s OK to objectify and denigrate women.”- Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Source)Wasserman Schultz has quietly been keeping tabs on Harrington. In December of 2011, the Politico called out the Shark Tank and Univision by suggesting that we colluded against Wasserman Schultz. In Univision’s interview of Wasserman Schultz, the Congresswoman was asked if her seat was safe in spite of the fact that Harrington was running against her again and had won nearly 40% of the vote in the 2010 general election against her. What is not known is that Wasserman Schultz sent over a scathing letter to Univision complaining about the matter, citing Harrington by name.(Source-Breitbart)
A few weeks later, in comes the Politico. No sooner than the Politico posts go up, a Politifact article on one of Karen Harrington’s statements about Wasserman Schultz is published. Politifact gave Harrington a “False” rating for misspeaking about Wasserman Schultz’s claim that it was Bush’s fault Hamas rose to political power.(Source-Politifact)
Wasserman Schultz’s people then pitched the Politifact story to CNN, who declined to run it.
Harrington has gained national attention of late by calling on Wasserman Schultz to release her own tax records. Wasserman Schultz has repeated called for GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney release his past tax returns, but she has yet to disclose her own. (Source-Fox News)
These desperate measures taken to defeat conservative Republican candidates by Democrats and their surrogates, will most likely fail as they have in the past. It’s time for all Republicans to see throught the lies and misrepresentations by these liberal operatives and support the conservatives who are on the targets of these attacks.

George W. Bush had it right all along
By: Diane Sori
OK, let’s cut to the chase...George W. Bush was right all along about Iraq having Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), they just moved them to Syria.
As Syria continues its slaughter of innocent civilians some US officials, including Barack Hussein Obama, are down playing or outright ignoring the threat Syria poses to Israel, Turkey, and Jordan. Little known, as it’s conveniently NOT being reported by the media, is that on July 8th Syria test-fired missiles against all three countries in a simulated attack of outside aggression in air-and-sea exercises. This action follows Iran’s practice of continuous military simulated drills done to prepare for possible Western and Israeli attacks against them.
Syrian President Bashar Assad has always denied having weapons of mass destruction but it’s well known that he has huge stockpiles of mustard gas, sarin nerve gas, and cyanide. It’s also known that right before the official start of the Iraq War that transport trucks were seen and photographed going back and forth between Iraq and Syria. And it’s a fact that these are the very same type of chemical gasses that Saddam Hussein used against the Kurds in northern Iraq.
Two and two still equals four in my world, and if the liberals and Bush haters in this country had instead supported Bush in his assertions that there were indeed WDMs in Iraq then being transported to Syria, the world would not be facing and having to deal with a possible chemical attack by yet another madman.
And with Syria being one of eight countries, including Israel and Egypt, that did not join the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention, this means the world's Chemical Weapons Watchdog Groups have no jurisdiction or authority to intervene or even request permission from Syria to enter the country to see if the reports of them having WMDs are true or not.
But we all know they’re true and we all know madmen do NOT live by rules of civilized people nor do they follow the Geneva Convention’s ‘humane rules of war.’
So while Obama and his ilk feel Assad is only keeping these weapons from falling into terrorist hands, we know this is NOT the truth, as some believe Assad is actually preparing for ethnic cleansing. Reports have surfaced that chemical weapons have already been transferred to Homs, Latakia and Aleppo in preparation for use against Christian and other minorities.
But truth be told, are they being readied for use against their own or are they being readied for use against strategic targets in the Middle East, including Syria’s sworn enemy Israel. Either option is obviously bad but Israel especially needs to prepare for surface-to-surface missile attacks as Syria has joined Iran in swearing to annihilate Israel and the Jewish people.
And now we need to prepare also, as American warships have silently and under the preverbal radar entered waters off Syria and Israel. And add into the mix that Russia continues to supply Syria with missiles, including supersonic cruise missiles that can deliver chemical warheads in addition to their vow to stop all foreign military action against the Assad regime, and with NATO (useless that they are) proclaiming they will NOT get involved in the Syrian conflict, you have one serious situation all the way around.
And all because people in our country thought George W. Bush to be a fool and war monger. But like I said before, Bush was right along and history will prove this so. Unfortunately, as a consequence of these naysayers many lives will be lost, lives that did not have to be if people had listened to Bush in the first place and then let our military act accordingly with the full unhindered fire power that was at their disposal.
Oh how I wish George W. Bush was still our president instead of the traitorous usurper that currently inhabits the White House.
