After Obama’s Nuclear Olive Branch to Islamic Iran, Supreme Leader Calls for Israel’s Destruction

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

For all of the unmitigated disasters suffered under President Obama’s reign — Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Gaza, etc. — he learns nothing and pursues the same fatal policy of savage appeasement. Here are Prime Minister Netanyahu’s latest remarks on Obama’s catastrophic “detente” with the world’s leading sponsor of terror:
Our goal must not be merely to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons today. We must also prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons tomorrow.
Iran is openly committed to Israel’s destruction. And even as Iran negotiates a nuclear deal with the leading powers in the international community, its Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, brazenly calls for Israel’s...

     

Woman proclaiming Christ ejected from Muslim prayers at National Cathedral

It all sounds so high-minded: the Rev. Canon Gina Campbell says: “This needs to be a world in which all are free to believe and practice and in which we avoid bigotry, Islamaphobia, racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Christianity and to embrace our humanity and to embrace faith.”

But someone threw a rotting cabbage on their lovely sofa, as DCist laments: “And because love, respect and understanding is too much of a concept for some people to understand, a person interrupted the service. Of course.” Still, the spectacle of a woman being forcibly ejected from what is ostensibly a Christian cathedral for proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord just before Muslim prayers are about to begin is at very least evidence that we live in strange times.

I noted here the Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood links of the sponsoring groups. Besides that, there is the fact that there is an enduring obstacle to achieving a world in which we are all free to believe and practice and embrace our humanity and faith: Muslims who take to heart and act upon Qur’an verses like these:

Christians have forgotten part of the divine revelations they received: “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.” — Qur’an 5:14

Jesus is not the Son of God: “O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.” — Qur’an 4:171

“It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” — Qur’an 19:35

The kill switch to any organization is funding. Stop the money, stop the institution. 
 
Disrupting and dismantling the highly funded Islamic State has been a challenge for the Obama Administration, and the House Committee on Financial Services wants to conduct rigorous oversight of how the president is working to stop the income of money to the terrorist group that currently has $2 billion in assets.

In a congressional hearing Thursday, lawmakers discussed how the United States can combat ISIS' continued income of millions of dollars a week which it collects through hostage ransoms, donations, extorting of locals, and most of all, the sale of black marketed oil.

The terrorist organization's anarchy in Syria and Iraq have enabled them to not only take over oil refineries, but kid nap innocent people and hold them for ransom. It is estimated that ISIS has received over $20 million in ransom payments this year. The barbaric acts of ISIS include raising funds by extorting the people that live in the areas they now control. Donations from supporters is also a major source of income for the terrorist group.

Treasury Under Secretary David S. Cohen was a witness and defended President Obama's work in dismantling ISIS; but the Republicans on the committee, including Congressman Scott Garrett (R-NJ) and Congressman Steve Pearce (R-NM), were not buying it.

"We cannot be cavalier about security threats such as ISIS," said Rep. Garrett. "[I am] concerned about how our Commander-in-Chief, President Obama has taken this threat."

Rep. Pearce was the most poignant committee member and demanded an answer from Cohen to why the air strikes ordered by President Obama have not single-handedly stopped ISIS from selling oil on the black market by destroying their transport trucks and refineries. When asked to scale President Obama's commitment to stoping the sale of ISIS produced oil from 1-10, Cohen said ten and that President Obama was absolutely committed to stopping oil from being sold by ISIS. Rep. Pearce could not get a solid answer from Cohen on why this hasn't been done even when stating he is in the meetings with the president on how they are working to defund ISIS.

Rep. Pearce said in a statement to Townhall regarding Cohen's receptiveness to his idea of attacking ISIS transportation trucks:
"The ISIS terrorist group's ability to self-finance is unlike anything we have seen before in a terrorist organization. Earning over $1 million a day in oil sales for their fight is unacceptable. We must stop the flow of money, which is achieved by stopping the flow of oil. I believe our military can do this immediately, if given the order.”
Cohen laid out several ways the Treasury Department and the Obama Administration are working to defund and defeat ISIS. This includes sanctioning banks that conduct the international transactions for ISIS. Also, thwarting those who buy the oil on the black market. He stressed to the committee that though ISIS may have "several millions dollars a week" of income, this should not be confused with "financial strength."
"ISIL does not have the income to meet their costs...I do think the strategy we're employing will impale ISIL's access to funding. It will impair their ability to use the funding that they have and we'll see a real impact on ISIS, but it will take a dedicated effort over some period of time," said Cohen.
Air strikes on ISIS have slowed their income from approximately $1-$2 million a day to "several million a week," according to Cohen.

President Obama's public stance that the FCC should reclassify broadband internet services as a Title II "common carrier" under the current Telecommunications Act carries many ramifications, but one is undeniable: there's going to be a hidden tax hike, and it's going to be paid for by consumers. 
 
Title II common carriers are required to "contribute" to what's called the Universal Service Fund - a government program to bring telecommunications services to underserved areas with the goal of universal coverage. Whether it's called "contributions" or fees or whatnot, the function of the program is a tax on corporate revenues in order to fund services for those who might not have them otherwise. It's a redistributive corporate tax paid for by consumers.

The USF tax amounts to more than a 16% charge on top of consumers' bills. As broadband service providers are not currently subject to the USF tax, a reclassification would mean that all consumers would see a jump around that size in their bill. Considering that in some locales, the cheapest broadband service runs upwards of $50 per month, this will cost even the most price-conscious consumers an extra $100 per year - and for those at higher tiers, much more than that.

FCC commissioners past and present have agreed that the this net neutrality tax is unavoidable in a Title II reclassification scenario. In a discussion at the National Press Club on Friday, current FCC commissioner Ajit Pai laid out exactly what consumers would be seeing on their bills.

"Public utility regulation would mean higher broadband prices for consumers," Pai said. "Once broadband is classified as a telecommunications service, universal service charges would be assessed on carriers' broadband services. Many state and local taxes would automatically kick in."

"The net result is that every single American broadband customer would have to pay a new tax - or taxes - to access the internet."

An FCC decision to go with title II reclassification in order to enforce new net neutrality regulations would have a lot of deleterious effects. One of the most obvious is that it would be a tax hike on a service that the government believes is essential to American life.

Sen. Ron Johnson Slams Democrats' Turnabout on Keystone Pipeline

By Todd Beamon / NEWSMAX



The about-face by Democrats in support of the Keystone XL pipeline as the $8 billion project nears a critical vote in the Senate next week smacks of "100 percent pure political maneuvering," Sen. Ron Johnson told Newsmax on Friday.

"What’s remarkable to me is that Mary Landrieu has the gall to say in interviews that there’s no politics involved in this at all," the Wisconsin Republican said, referring to the embattled Louisiana Democrat whose political future may depend on her being able to get the 60 votes needed to approve the pipeline. "That’s all this is."

The first-term Johnson then likened Landrieu's remarks to those disparaging Americans by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber.

"It just proves that what Jonathan Gruber was saying is true: Democrats truly believe that the American public is so stupid that they can stand up and say, 'Oh, there’s no politics in this' and actually believe that the American public — and the folks in Louisiana — would believe this," he said. "It’s unbelievable."

Landrieu, who is seeking her fourth term, is in a bitter Dec. 6 runoff against GOP Rep. Bill Cassidy after both failed to win 50 percent of the votes in the Nov. 4 election.

Both have been touting their energy credentials, as the Democrats seek to keep the Republicans from adding another seat to the biggest majority the GOP has had in the upper chamber since World War II.

Since the lame-duck congressional session began on Wednesday, Landrieu has been working feverishly to muster the 60 votes needed to pass the pipeline proposal.

Op-ed:
Amnesty by Executive Order
By: Diane Sori

"You cannot simply issue decrees, we don't rule by decree in this country."
- Charles Krauthammer FOX News political commentator

In a few days Barack HUSSEIN Obama will deliberately tear our country apart as pay-back for the Election Day shellacking he and his party received.

Granting legal status to roughly 4.5 million what he refers to as 'undocumented immigrants'...who in reality are ILLEGAL criminals who need to be sent home as many of them are guilty of serious criminal acts beyond just their ILLEGALLY...will soon have their names added...along with tens of thousands of others just like them...to the Democratic voter rolls and help to keep Democrats in control of the government for years to come. And these people will NOT just be added to voter rolls but now will also be able to have their names added to the currently falling union membership rosters...helping to keep Obama's hand in the union pot so to speak...as well as guarantee their undying loyalty to the party by adding them to the welfare and other government subsidies rolls as well.

By Obama's granting what he calls 'legal status' to ILLEGAL-alien parents of U.S. born (citizen) children, as well as expanding his 2012 executive order known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)...which granted deferred action (delaying or halting deportation) to illegals who met certain requirements and criteria and who came to the U.S. before the age of 16 and arrived before 2007...to now include those who arrived before 2010...translates into Obama willfully going against the wishes of two out of three American citizens.

Now essentially suspending deportation for almost a full half of the ILLEGALS currently residing in this country, the Republicans are mad as hell over what should be a collaboration between Congress and the president, but has now become Obama going it alone via 'his pen and his phone' instead of giving the newly elected Congress a modicum of a chance to try for a solution to the ILLEGAL problem...a solution that is as simple as enforce the laws already on the books.

In fact, RNC Chairman Reince Preibus has called on Republicans in the House to stop Obama's actions through the budget process. Remember, the Republicans still control the House even with this sitting Congress so they can defund in full the monies needed to implement Obama's plan thus rendering it null and void. And a growing number of House Republicans...led by Rep. Matt Salmon of Arizona...have already signed a letter to the Republican hierarchy that insists the party include language in the upcoming 'for vote' spending bill to prevent this most anti-American of all presidents from taking any and all unilateral action on immigration.

And this what amounts to amnesty...for amnesty is what Obama's executive order will truly convey...will take jobs away from already struggling American workers...and really does make a mockery of the Obama heralded jobs numbers that are anything but truthful, for the fact remains that one out of four American workers is currently unemployed. The 5.9 percent current unemployment figures touted by the Obama administration does NOT take into effect those who've stopped looking for work, along with those relegated down to part-time employees because their employers could NOT afford to cover them insurance wise thanks to the abomination that is ObamaCare.

And who will be hurt the most by Obama's circumnavigating Congress with this amnesty action...none other than his blind-following sheeple including low-skilled black American workers, especially young black men who are more likely to be part of the low-skilled labor force than are white men of the same age. Of note is the fact that black worker's wages have been the slowest to rebound from the recession, and when you add in that what few low-skilled jobs there are available will now be taken away from them by these newly Obama-made LEGAL ILLEGALS, black Americans are starting to see the truth behind the man who claims to be one of them.

Finally seeing that these people will be granted the work permits, photo IDs, and Social Security numbers needed to allow them to take said jobs and benefits away, black workers will now be forced to compete for those very jobs that these ILLEGALS would NEVER have been considered for before...so it's NO wonder that blacks have NOT taken all too kindly to Obama's recent round of stump speeches.

So I guess it's adieu to Obama's phony love fest for his black brethren as his upcoming action will prove once and for all that he does NOT care about them either...now if they were muslim that would be a different story...just saying.

And as far as the legalities of what Obama is planning on doing let it be known that executive ordered amnesty is indeed a violation of the Constitution for NOWHERE in our founding document...the document that is the law of our land...does it grant the president authority to issue an executive order whose sole purpose is to unilaterally overturn a law or laws currently on the books. In fact, Article II grants the president only the power to execute laws, NOT write or change laws simply because he cannot get Congress to march in lock-step with him. And since Article I vests all lawmaking power to the Congress, that means that Congress and Congress alone can grant amnesty per se. Remember, amnesty is NOT a pardon which presidents do have the authority to do and so love to do before leaving office.

So the bottom line is that if Barack HUSSEIN Obama does indeed follow through with this threat...and make NO mistake this executive order is both a threat and a vengeful act of payback...it would be just one more criminal and highly ILLEGAL act to add to the long and growing list of impeachable offenses that this sitting Congress is just too afraid of the race card to act upon...and that is the saddest thing of all.
