Night Watch


 

China-US: At the Foreign Ministry press briefing in Beijing today, the spokesman responded to a question about statements made by the US President in an interview with a Japanese newspaper.

"Q: According to reporting, Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun on the 23rd published the content of its interview with US President Barack Obama. Obama says that the Diaoyu Islands (Senkaku Islands) are administered by Japan and therefore fall within the scope of the Japan-US security treaty. At the same time, he says that the United States supports a greater role for Japan in the security arena in the Asia-Pacific region. Does the Chinese side have any comment?"

"A: The Chinese side's position on the Diaoyu Islands issue is clear and consistent. The Diaoyu Islands are inherently Chinese territory. China has indisputable sovereignty over them. Japan's occupation of the Diaoyu Islands is illegal and invalid. The Japanese side's provocative acts on the Diaoyu Islands issue are undeniable and unreasonable. No one can shake our resolve and will to safeguard our country's territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests."

"What needs to be pointed out is that the Japan-US alliance is a bilateral arrangement forged during the Cold War era and should not undermine China's territorial sovereignty and legitimate rights and interests. China resolutely opposes putting the Diaoyu Islands under the Japan-US security treaty. The American side should respect the facts, strictly honor its commitment to taking no sides on issues concerning territorial sovereignty in a responsible manner, exercise caution in its words and deeds, and earnestly play a constructive role in regional peace and stability."

Comment: This is a re-statement of the standard Chinese position. China cannot and will not back down on issues of territorial sovereignty.

Concerning North Korean developments, the spokesman confirmed that South Korean President Park spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about recent activity in North Korea. The spokesman said China "is paying close attention to the current tense situation." Xi restated the Chinese commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and to peace and stability through dialogue.

The spokesman said, "The two heads of state agreed to continue to maintain communication, coordination, and cooperation on the Korean Peninsula issue."

Russia-Ukraine: Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov gave an interview to Russian state TV channel RT. He accused the US of reneging on the 17 April Geneva document which calls for reciprocal actions to stabilize the situation in Ukraine. In every case the US has dictated what Russia must do and what eastern Ukrainians must do without taking reciprocal action in Kiev.

Lavrov noted that illegal armed bands are to be disarmed by both sides, but no group is attempting to disarm Right Sector, the Ukrainian ultra-nationalists. He said that groups are to vacate buildings but apparently not in Kiev and other cities. Lavrov opined that the US is "running the show" in Kiev, citing reports of CIA agents at national security headquarters in Kiev.

Lavrov noted the first operation by the Kiev regime against the eastern Ukrainians began the afternoon of 17 April. As for the operation ordered yesterday, Lavrov said it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its "anti-terrorist" operation in the east on Tuesday during a visit by "Joe Biden." He referred to the US Vice President repeatedly, but only as "Joe Biden."

Lavrov's most important statements came in response to a question about Russian troops. The question posed by interviewer Shevardnadze and Lavrov's reply are reproduced below.


Obama's Dirty Watchdogs  
 
The Obama administration doesn't have watchdogs. It has whitewash puppies.

The president's Chicago bullies have defanged true advocates for integrity in government in D.C. from day one. So the latest report by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee on corruptocrat Charles K. Edwards, the former Department of Homeland Security inspector general, isn't a revelation. It's confirmation.

Investigators found that Edwards compromised the independence of his office by socializing and sucking up to senior DHS officials. "There are many blessings to be thankful for this year," the sycophantic Edwards wrote to the DHS acting counsel on Thanksgiving 2011, "but one of the best is having a friend like you." Geez, get them a room.

Whistleblowers outlined how Edwards cozied up to multiple DHS execs and legal staffers, who directed him to alter reports on immigration enforcement, TSA screening and the Secret Service's dalliances with prostitutes in Argentina. Edwards failed to obtain independent legal analysis of ethics issues. The IG counsel was cut out of the loop. Edwards ordered reports to be doctored or delayed.

He failed to recuse himself from audits and inspections that had conflicts of interest related to his wife's employment.

The probe among DHS employees also discovered that Edwards' apparent retaliatory actions against staff dissenters "contributed to an office environment characterized by low morale, fear and general dissatisfaction with Mr. Edwards' leadership."

The Obama White House was quite happy, however. The administration installed this 20-year career bureaucrat as acting DOJ senior watchdog despite the fact that he had zero experience conducting audits, investigations and inspections -- the three fundamental duties of an inspector general. They got exactly what they needed: A do-nothing, know-nothing, toothless lackey.

Edwards' main non-accomplishment was carrying water for the Obama corruptocracy as he dithered on the internal investigation of Alejandro Mayorkas, who was confirmed late last year as the No. 2 official at Homeland Security. As I've previously reported, veteran internal whistleblowers told Capitol Hill about fraud, reckless rubber-stamping and lax enforcement under Mayorkas' tenure as head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Put on your shocked faces: The DOJ's IG probe into Mayorkas' role on fast-tracking visas for wealthy Chinese investors on behalf of GreenTech -- the crony company with ties to Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Hillary Clinton's other brother, Anthony -- has yet to be completed after more than a year.

Former DHS crook-in-chief Janet Napolitano continues to deny any wrongdoing. Conveniently, Napolitano's longtime aide and crony pal Suzanne Barr, former chief of staff to former DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement head John Morton, left office just after whistleblower allegations about Barr's lewd conduct and sexual harassment of underlings surfaced. Guess who was "in charge" as the scandal broke open? Whitewash puppy Charles K. Edwards.

As always, the fish rots from the head down. Remember: Team Hope and Change sacked former Amtrak Inspector General Fred Weiderhold and former Americorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin for exposing financial improprieties and calling out Obama officials' interference with their probes.

And the current kennel of Obama cover-up enablers masquerading as watchdogs includes Interior Department acting IG Mary Kendall. She remains under investigation for allegations that she potentially helped White House officials cover up their doctoring of scientific documents that led to the fraudulent, job-killing drilling moratorium of 2010.

Then there was former DOJ acting inspector Cynthia Schnedar, a longtime employee and colleague of now-Attorney General Eric Holder, who recklessly released secret Operation Fast and Furious audiotapes to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Phoenix before reviewing them. She resigned in 2012 to avoid the heat.

When the Senate panel called Charles K. Edwards to testify last December about his own hot ethics mess, the White House promptly whisked Edwards out of the job and transferred him to the "science and technology" division of DOJ.

Funny how the "most transparent administration in American history" loves to play hide and seek with its dirty watchdogs. Heels, the whole lot of them.

99 Years of Islamic Genocide of Armenian Christians, Obama breaks promise to acknowledge Armenian genocide


Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

Almost 100 years and millions dead, but still the Muslim world refuses to call it a genocide. Worse, the Turks will prosecute anyone who does. That’s how far the Muslim world has come in the past 100 years. Stuck. in. savagery.

And the West still wrestles with whether to call the Armenian Genocide a genocide. Shame on us. For 6th year in a row, Obama breaks promise to acknowledge Armenian genocide.
For the sixth year in a row, President Barack Obama has broken his promise to the Armenian community, made when seeking their votes as a senator and a presidential candidate, to use the word “genocide” to describe the massacre of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire a century ago. He did this in deference to the government of Turkey, which – historical revisionism aside – the Obama administration regards as a more crucial ally.
Shame on Obama. Shame on Abe Foxman of the ADL, who refuses to call it a genocide, but his flapping tongue lambastes me and others whose lifework is truth in the defense of freedom.

Adolf Hitler was inspired by the Islamic genocide of the Armenian Christians and the silence that followed it.
It is well known by genocide scholars that in 1939 Adolf Hitler urged his generals to exterminate members of the Polish race.[1]Who speaks today of the extermination of the Armenians?” Hitler asked, just a week before the September 1, 1939 invasion of Poland.[2]
Still, there is evidence that the massacre of the Ottoman Armenians helped persuade the Nazis that national minorities posed a threat to empires dominated by an ethnic group such as the Germans or the Turks. Furthermore, these minorities could be exterminated to the benefit of the perpetrator with little risk. Indeed, it was German officials who had smuggled out of the Ottoman Empire the leaders of the Young Turk regime, culpable for the deaths of over a million Armenians and a million or more other Christian minorities such as the Assyrians and Greeks.[5] Diverse historical evidence suggests that Hitler viewed the Armenians and Poles as analogous; in several ways, his statement about the Armenians was consistent with his other beliefs and writings.

Silence is sanction.
MICHIGANISTA: Terror-linked CAIR harasses private American citizens for their opposition to another Islamic Indoctrination Center in their neighborhood
Bare Naked Islam


FI

AFLC is representing seven private citizens who were issued harassing subpoenas by the Muslim Brotherhood front group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) because they publicly expressed their opposition to the construction of an Islamic center in their neighborhood in Pittsfield Township, Michigan.

hqdefault-1-300x225

AFLC  In 2012, the Muslim Community Association of Ann Arbor (MCA) requested that the Township rezone a parcel of land to build an Islamic School and community center. The Township denied the request, citing infrastructure and traffic concerns. Nevertheless, CAIR, (whose Michigan Executive Director, Dawud Walid, is a notorious anti-semite who advocates the killing of Jews) which bills itself as “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization,” filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Township on behalf of the MCA, alleging that the denial of the MCA’s rezoning application violated the Islamic group’s constitutional and statutory rights.

DawudWalid

The MCA’s rezoning request was opposed by a group of Township residents who live in the neighborhood of the proposed construction. The residents expressed concerns about the traffic congestion that would be caused by the construction of a school and community center in their neighborhood. Pursuant to their rights protected by the First Amendment, these private citizens circulated and submitted to their elected Township officials a petition expressing their opposition to the rezoning and several of them spoke out at public hearings held by the Township to discuss the matter. As a result, CAIR served harassing subpoenas on a number of these citizens, demanding that they produce private emails and other documents, and in some cases, appear for a deposition.

 

Indeed, AFLC is representing a husband and wife who came home one day to find several papers jammed in the crack of the front door of their home. The papers included subpoenas demanding the production of personal emails and other documents and a subpoena commanding the wife to appear at a deposition.

 

Dawud Walid led a boycott against Lowe's because they pulled their advertising off the failed cable TV show 'All American Muslim'Dawud Walid, CAIR-MI Executive Director, led a boycott against Lowe’s because they pulled their advertising off the failed cable TV show ‘All American Muslim.’

In response to CAIR’s discovery requests, AFLC filed a motion to “quash” and for a protective order in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, arguing that CAIR’s discovery demands were harassing, irrelevant, and oppressive. As stated in AFLC’s memorandum in support of its motion:

 

As a private citizen and resident of the Township, [AFLC’s client] has a fundamental right to publicly express to her elected officials her opposition to Plaintiff’s proposal, which will personally impact her by increasing traffic in her neighborhood. [AFLC’s client] had no authority whatsoever to either grant or deny Plaintiff’s rezoning application—she is a private citizen, not a public official. Her personal views, whether expressed to the Township, Township officials, or her neighbors, are not remotely relevant in this litigation.

 

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented: “There is no doubt that CAIR – a sharia-adherent Islamist group that notoriously uses the legal system to silence any opposition to its nefarious agenda – is abusing the discovery process to retaliate against and intimidate private citizens who dared to publicly express their opposition to the Islamic center. AFLC is quite familiar with CAIR’s bullying tactics, which is why it is important that we defend these private citizens’ constitutional rights.”

 


cair-cartoon

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented: “CAIR’s discovery demands plainly infringe upon precious First Amendment liberties and the paramount right of a private citizen to publicly express her opinions to elected representatives on matters that affect her and her community. On a broader level, CAIR’s decision to browbeat these ordinary Americans clearly shows the pervasiveness of sharia-adherent Islam and its ‘civilizational jihad’ within our borders. Needless to say, if CAIR wishes to persecute Americans through the legal system, they’ll have to contend with us.”

 

CAIR, a self-described Muslim public interest law firm, was previously named as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the federal criminal trial and conviction of a terrorist funding cell organized around one of the largest Muslim charities, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF). HLF raised funds for violent jihad on behalf of Hamas, and top CAIR officials were part of the conspiracy. As a result, the FBI publicly announced that it has terminated any outreach activities with the national organization.

Friday Fume

By Craig Andresen  

fume 1Oh man, oh man…we’ve actually made it to the end of another week of liberal insanity and, before I get to the MEAT of the socialist crap burger…allow me to impart a small byproduct of it to you.

In Illinois…where people are mired in all manner of liberal devastation from debt and overspending to corruption and violence…the state House Committee has put forth the idea that ILLINOIS TAXPAYERS should CHOKE UP…$100 MILLION DOLLARS to build the…
Barack Hussein oh blow it out your ASS…PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY and mosque.

Well…That should make it the world’s most expensive OUTHOUSE BASEMENT ever constructed.

Patriot friends…It’s Friday and in case you haven’t guessed…

I’m fuming.

The National September 11th Memorial Museum is set to open to the public next month and wouldn’t ya just know it…there’s a gaggle on numb-nuts that are blathering about a film that’s to be shown there because…they’re afraid it might upset the Islamists and Jihadis.

And we all know what the Jihadis and Islamists do when they get their head diapers in a wad…

THEY COMMIT ACTS OF TERRORISM LIKE…FLYING PLANES INTO THE TWIN TOWERS AND KILLING ALMOST THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE!!!

The…DOCUMENTARY…

slime 1‘The Rise of Al Qaeda’ refers to the garbage that committed the atrocities of 9/11 as JIHADIS AND ISLAMISTS and some dim-witted INTERFAITH group is claiming“The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum.”

And which member of that INTERFAITH group SPEWED that quote???

SHEIK…MOSTAFA ELAZABAWY…THE IMAM…OF THE MASJID MANHATTAN…THAT’S WHO!!!

Obviously, this group sufferers from collective CRANIAL-KEESTER SYNDROME…and they want to make nice-nice with the RELIGION OF PEACE by canning this 7 minute film as though…if it’s not screened…WE CAN ALL CO-EXIST!!!

Op-ed:
Three hotspots heating up   
By: Diane Sori
 
"What we're after here is persistent presence, a persistent rotational presence."          
- Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby

And so it continues as Vladimir Putin's aggression against Ukraine shows NO sign of abating. With a company of 150 soldiers from the US Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade conducting joint training exercises with their Polish counterparts...conducting them at Poland's request to show the world that the U.S. stands with Poland...and with an additional 450 troops shortly due to arrive in Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia...this is the start of U.S. troops maintaining a presence in Poland and throughout the region at least through the end of this year.

A presence that amounts to NOTHING really as 600 troops is an Obama tokenism...60,000 troops would be a true show of force that even Putin would have to respect.

But with even this small number of our troops now technically within fighting range...within dying range...of Putin's Russian forces...the chess game between Ukrainian pro-government forces and pro-Russian factions has taken a turn that has neighboring countries fearful, and rightly so, as 40,000 Russian troops have amassed near Ukraine's border. And with our people now close to this area, the Cold War itself...or worse...could be re-ignited...you know the very same Cold War that Obama said ended over 20 years ago in his foreign policy debate with Mitt Romney.

Guess what Obama...it NEVER ended.

And with this show of force...as puny as it is...this fight could now possibly turn into the U.S. vs. Russia...the 'leader from behind' vs. 'the Russian Bear'...and we all know the outcome of that standoff will NOT be pretty.

"... We have the capacity, we have the commitment, we have the will to fulfill our NATO obligations," said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Richard C. Longo, but hate to tell the General that the sending of a 600 member token force,12 F-16 fighter jets, and aviation support teams to Poland, in NO way sends a strong message to Putin that both Obama and America stands by our NATO allies. All it proves is that once again Barack HUSSEIN Obama is off his game...hell...he's NOT even in the game.

And unfortunately for us and the world the game continues on...

Hey Obama...did you know that al-Qaeda...the very enemy you are helping to arm in Syria...has taken control of a once-secretive U.S. base on the Libyan coastline west of Tripoli...a base set-up by our Green Beret special forces for counter terrorism training purposes...a base once used to sharpen the skills of Libya’s Western-trained special operations fighters, and also used as the American base of operations for hunting down islamic militants within the area.  

And now thanks to Obama's lack of both leadership skills and his being in the pocket of the al-Qaeda hierarchy, this American base...a base some are claiming was deserted...is now in the hands of Ibrahim Ali Abu Bakr Tantoush, an Osama bin-Laden al-Qaeda operative who currently heads a large group of Salifist fighters.

Guess Obama's Arab Spring turned Arab Winter is actually turning into a glimpse of an Arab hell...an entire Middle East hell...and it gets worse...

Much worse...for now the farce known as the 'Roadmap to Peace' has crumbled into one big burning heap of a mess as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rightfully accused Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, of forming an alliance with Hamas. You know Hamas...the very group that calls for Israel's destruction. This alliance, if it comes to fruition, would end by this June the seven-year rift between the two groups as it will try to form a new Palestinian government comprised of independents and technocrats. Under the deal, elections for parliament and the presidency would be held next year, with Abbas intending to implement the agreement within the next few weeks.

This so-called alliance...actually a 'unity agreement'...between Abbas' Fatah movement (the dominant group within the PLO that governs parts of the West Bank) and Hamas (the group that governs the Gaza Strip, believes in armed resistance, and refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish state)...has given much credence to Israel's walking out of this anything but a peace process, and doing so mere days before the U.S. set deadline for an agreement between both sides was supposed to have be reached.

And Israel has rightfully vowed NOT to hold any future talks as long as the 'unity initiative' continues.

"They are currently suspended"...as..."The government of Israel will not hold negotiations with a Palestinian government that is backed by Hamas, a terror organization that calls for Israel's destruction," said one Israeli official who was part of the negotiating team.

And the Obama administration's response...our State Department's response to this news is that they would have to reconsider U.S. assistance to Abbas's Palestinian Authority if he and Hamas do indeed form said government. Saying in an official statement that, "Any Palestinian government must unambiguously and explicitly commit to nonviolence, recognition of the state of Israel, and acceptance of previous agreements and obligations between the parties. If a new Palestinian government is formed, we will assess it based on its adherence to the stipulations above, its policies and actions, and will determine any implications for our assistance based on US law"...one critical omission must be noted...

Please note there is NO mention of the all-important recognition of Israel as a Jewish State in our State Department's response.

'Any implications' my eye...the statement should have said that we will cut all aid to those deceitful muslim bast*rds now...period. But does Obama have the guts to stand strong with our friend and ally Israel against this latest Palestinian maneuver...does Obama have the guts to cut all aid to his brethren...I'm sure NOT holding my breath for that one especially when the U(seless) N(ations) Middle East envoy Robert Serry supports the Abbas/Hamas agreement... saying it was "the only way to reunite the West Bank and Gaza under one legitimate Palestinian Authority"...and with the EU saying it welcomed the Palestinian unity agreement but adding that their priority remains peace talks with Israel.

Sorry but you cannot have it both ways.

So as the non-existent so-called Palestinians celebrate the 'unity agreement' Israel rightfully walks away from the anything but peace talks. And as our State Department's chief bloviator, Secretary of State John 'Swiftboat' Kerry, fails in his job yet again...the fires have been lit for major confrontations from the Balkans straight through to the Middle East...and they will catch fire just as Barack HUSSEIN Obama jets off for yet another vacation on our taxpayer dime.
