AFDI and 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims to hold Memorial and Press Conference at Ground Zero on 9/11

From Market Watch

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The human rights organization the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims are holding a joint press conference and memorial service at Ground Zero in New York City on September 11, 2013, the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 jihad terror attacks.
The memorial and press conference will begin at 1PM at the southwest corner of Zucotti Park, at Church and Cedar streets in lower Manhattan.
The press conference will be hosted by AFDI's Executive Pamela Geller and Associate Director Robert Spencer. Featured speakers will be Sally Regenhard and Rosaleen Talon of 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims.
Sally and Sgt. Al Regenhard, a retired NYPD officer and U.S. Marine Corps veteran, are the parents of firefighter Christian Regenhard, also a Marine veteran, who was killed on 9/11.
Rosaleen Tallon is the sister of firefighter Sean Tallon, who was also killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Geller said in a statement: "The Million Muslim March on 9/11 in Washington is an attempt to obscure the reality of what happened on 9/11, portray Muslims as victims, and intimidate government and law enforcement officials into ending surveillance of suspected jihadists. Our memorial and press conference puts the focus back where it should be: on the victims of 9/11, and our need to be vigilant in the face of the ongoing jihad threat."
The press conference will advocate for the honorable and respectful interment of unidentified 9/11 human remains at Ground Zero - not inside the Museum, as planned.
Nearly a decade ago, 9/11 families were promised in writing by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) in 2003 that these remains would be located in a "separate and distinct repository - separate from any museum or visitor center." But city officials and the Museum directors reneged on that promise, and plan to place 9,000 unidentified remains 70 feet (seven stories) below ground - where their relatives will be charged $25 admission to visit.
Regenhard said: "The 'pay to grieve' 9/11 museum is a national disgrace. 9/11 family members never wanted a billion-dollar money pit. All we hoped for was a simple, uplifting, honorable and patriotic memorial for all who were lost that terrible September day. Instead, those who want to pay their respects will have to pay Bloomberg & Co."
The press conference will also address the non-patriotic theme of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, including the absence of American flags on the site (there is only one flag at the site, and that one was originally put up by construction workers and then moved to the edge of the site where it can barely be seen at all). This is consistent with the initial rejection by National September 11 Memorial and Museum creative director Michael Shulan's initial rejection of the iconic flag-raising photo in the Museum, complaining that it was "too rah-rah American."
Press conference speakers will also note the fact that the photos of the 9/11 jihad terrorists, plus their martyrdom quotes, will be prominently displayed in the Museum, while information on the victims will be in a kiosk, much less prominently displayed.
The victims' photos will be twelve feet above the floor on one wall (3,000-plus photos), while those of the 19 jihadis will have their own wall, with their murderous statements and artifacts at eye level.
Geller concluded: "We will be calling upon the federal government to take over the administration of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. It should be a national museum. 9/11 family members should not have to pay $25 to visit the remains of 9,000 victims deep underground."
AFDI stands for:
-- The freedom of speech - as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of "blasphemy" and "slander," which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
-- The freedom of conscience - as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
-- The equality of rights of all people before the law - as opposed to Sharia's institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.

Syria again challenges Obama’s ‘red line’ on chemical weapons

President Obama’s “red line” for Syria is once again being tested after rebel forces said Wednesday that the regime of President Bashar Assad used poison gas to attack civilians near Damascus, killing potentially hundreds in what could turn out to be the deadliest deployment of chemical weapons yet.

Adding to the pressure on the White House were videos supplied by rebels showing victims convulsing and choking, and powerful photos of children wrapped in clean white shrouds, lined shoulder to shoulder with their dead faces visible.

The Syrian regime adamantly denied that it used chemical weapons.

The White House said it was trying to confirm the reports independently but that the allegations pose a test for the embattled Mr. Assad, who has said he wants to disprove allegations of chemical weapons attacks. Mr. Assad now will have to decide whether he will allow a 20-member team of United Nations chemical weapons inspectors who just arrived in his country to examine the new sites.

“It’s time for them to live up to that claim,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.

“And if they actually are interested in getting to the bottom of the use of chemical weapons and whether or not that’s occurred in Syria, then they will allow the U.N. investigative team that’s already in Syria to access the site where chemical weapons may have been used.”

Rebels gave various estimates of the death toll from the artillery fire, ranging from the low hundreds to more than 1,300.

In New York, the U.N. Security Council held an emergency session to call for a “thorough, impartial and prompt investigation” of the charges against Syria.

Argentina’s U.N. ambassador, Maria Cristina Perceval, the current council president, told reporters that there was “strong concern” about the latest charges of chemical weapons use “and a general sense that there must be clarity on what happened.” Russia and China approved the move but blocked a proposal by the United States and its allies to issue a stronger statement on the incidents.

News organizations said it was impossible to verify either the death toll reports or the nature of the attack.

The reports emerged almost a year to the day after Mr. Obama issued his “red line” to the Syrian regime, saying he would ensure that Damascus would suffer “enormous consequences” if chemical weapons were used or even if they were being readied for deployment.

Pressed by reporters about what consequences could be in line and why the U.S. response has been limited to condemnation, Mr. Earnest demurred. Still, he acknowledged the administration has “not attained our goal here yet, which is the removal of Assad from power.”

That is partly because the U.S. remains limited in the steps it’s ready to take.

Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote a letter this week to a congressman saying the Pentagon is opposed to even limited action in Syria backing the rebels because it is not certain it would be aiding those who support American interests.

“Syria today is not about choosing between two sides but rather about choosing one among many sides,” Gen. Dempsey said in the Aug. 19 letter to Rep. Eliot L. Engel, New York Democrat.

In the letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press, Gen. Dempsey said, “It is my belief that the side we choose must be ready to promote their interests and ours when the balance shifts in their favor. Today, they are not.”

The general said that establishing a no-fly zone over Syria, as some lawmakers have called for, would dent the regime’s air power but would not be a decisive blow leading to Mr. Assad’s ouster and instead would draw the U.S. deeper into the conflict.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill said some sort of intervention is needed to stop the civil war, which has raged since 2011 and has killed more than 100,0000, according to U.N. estimates.

“The U.S. has two options: continue to largely stand on the sidelines as the regime slaughters its own people, or tip the balance of power against a brutal dictator by degrading its ability to attack civilians,” Mr. Engel said in a statement. “If we are to salvage what remains of our credibility in the region, we must act soon.”

Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr., Pennsylvania Democrat, said the latest chemical weapons revelations mean that Mr. Obama’s red line has been crossed again.

“Our national security interests continue to be at stake — every day that Assad remains in power is a benefit to Iran and the terrorist group Hezbollah,” he said.

The White House indicated that if chemical weapons were used, that could help solidify a coalition opposed to the Syrian regime, which still has support from longtime allies including Russia.

The Russian Foreign Ministry suggested that the attack may have been a “provocation” by the rebels, according to a report by RT, a network that broadcasts Russian views.

U.S. officials said earlier this year they had officially concluded that chemical weapons have been used in a few attacks and were reasonably sure the culprits were Syrian government forces. But given past questions about U.S. accusations of weapons of mass destruction, particularly in Iraq, the administration has been tentative in making more definitive claims.

That leaves the investigation to the U.N. team that arrived in Syria on Sunday.

The team negotiated with the Syrian government to gain access to the sites, but now will have to renegotiate if the investigators are to gain access to locations of this week’s attack.

Judge warns Obama on 'worthless' race complaints

EEOC claims background checks discriminate against blacks

Bob Unruh / WND  

A federal judge has described Obama administration claims that corporations use background checks to target blacks “worthless,” describing the allegations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as a “theory in search of facts” as he granted a motion for summary judgment, which is an immediate dismissal of the case.

“There are simply no facts here to support a theory of disparate impact resulting from any identified, specific practice of the defendant,” wrote Judge Roger W. Titus in the case brought by the Obama administration against Freeman Inc., a company that provides services for expositions, conventions, corporate events, meetings and programs.

Its revenues exceed $1.3 billion annually and it employs 3,500 fulltime workers and tens of thousands of part-time workers.

The EEOC alleged that the company, by checking the backgrounds of prospective employees, was illegally discriminating against blacks. But the Obama administration failed to provide any evidence of that, the judge ruled.

“While some specific uses of criminal and credit background checks may be discriminatory and violate the provision of Title VII, the EEOC bears the burden of supplying reliable expert testimony and statistical analysis that demonstrates disparate impact stemming from a specific employment practice before a violation can be found …. the EEOC has failed to do so.”

The emphasis was in the original document from the judge.

Officials with Judicial Watch, the Washington watchdog that seeks out corruption and reports on it, noted the judge’s description of the Obama administration’s case as “laughable,” “distorted,” “cherry-picked,” “worthless” and “an egregious example of scientific dishonesty.”

“That kind of whipping from a federal judge has got to hurt though it’s unlikely to deter the administration from spending more taxpayer dollars to file frivolous lawsuits against employers who use the checks to screen job applicants,” the organization reported Wednesday.

“Of interesting note is that the EEOC conducts criminal background checks as a condition of employment and credit background checks for most of its positions. For some reason, it’s not discriminatory against minorities when the agency does it,” the group reported. “But it is when private businesses utilize the tool because information about prior convictions is being used to discriminate against a racial or ethnic group, according to the EEOC. ”

Obama’s EEOC claimed the business “unlawfully relied upon credit and criminal background checks that caused a disparate impact against African-American, Hispanic, and male job applicants.”

“To support this absurd argument, the agency presented the court with ‘expert’ data, including a detailed statistical analysis, supposedly proving its disparate impact claims,” Judicial Watch said.

But Titus found the government argument “based on unreliable data,” “rife with analytical error,” with “a plethora of errors and analytical fallacies” and a “mind-boggling number of errors.”

Further, it was “completely unreliable,” “so full of material flaws that any evidence of disparate impact derived from an analysis of its contents must necessarily be disregarded” and “distorted.”

The judge said, “By bringing actions of this nature, the EEOC has placed many employers in the ‘Hobson’s choice’ of ignoring criminal history and credit background, thus exposing themselves to potential liability for criminal and fraudulent acts committed by employees, on the one hand, or incurring the wrath of the EEOC for having utilized information deemed fundamental by most employers.”

The judge noted there are legitimate reasons for background checks.

“For many employers, conducting a criminal history or credit record background check on a potential employee is a rational and legitimate component of a reasonable hiring process. The reasons for conducting such checks are obvious. Employers have a clear incentive to avoid hiring employees who have a proven tendency to defraud or steal from their employers, engage in workplace violence, or who otherwise appear to be untrustworthy and unreliable.”

The Obama administration alleged that the company, by doing background checks, had created a “pattern or practice” of “discrimination against African-American job applicants by using poor credit history as a hiring criterion … and against African-American, Hispanic, and male job applicants by using criminal history as a hiring criterion.”

The judge went even further, blasting the EEOC for making a “mockery” of court standards by “continually offering new expert reports … well past the applicable deadline.

In fact, they were “poorly disguised attempts to counter defendant’s arguments with new expert analysis.”
Each visit to the U.K. brings new horror stories about the National Health Service (NHS).

Last month, Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of the NHS, issued a forensic report, commissioned by the government, which found that 14 underperforming hospitals in England had substandard care, contributing to the needless deaths of nearly 13,000 people since 2005. Earlier this year, it was reported that a single hospital in Staffordshire recorded 1,400 "excess" deaths.

Following the July report, letters from patients and relatives of those who died flooded in to newspapers, Sky News and the BBC. Many confirmed poor treatment, if in fact they or their loved ones were able to receive timely care at all. The lack of adequate nursing staff, cuts to elder care budgets and a rise in immigrant populations are a few of the factors that have exacerbated the problem.

One letter from Grace Nutt to the Sky News web page is typical: "I am not surprised at the report at all. In fact the scandal has been going on for longer than the (period from) 2005 the report covers. My daughter was stillborn at Basildon Hospital in 1986. I was ten days overdue and very, very big, and in a lot of distress but was told go home and come back tomorrow; we don't have enough beds. During the night my daughter died. The nurse even told me she could hear the heartbeat the following day. I told her she couldn't and it was confirmed by the doctor. The lack of care has been going on for much longer than stated. I am distressed that I did not at the time take the case further and sue, but it's too late now. I hope everyone in similar circumstances makes them pay. D--n you Basildon Hospital."

Waiting times for many surgeries in the U.K. are notoriously long, but recently have grown longer.

The Huffington Post UK reports that, according to the NHS's own data, close to 3 million people "were waiting to begin NHS treatment at the end of June, following a referral by their GP." That represents an increase of 240,000 people from the same month last year. The NHS target for treatment following a referral is 18 weeks. The data show 91.7 percent of patients are "seen" within 18 weeks, but being seen and getting surgery or treatment are not the same. After the first appointment, patients often get in another line. Some wait additional weeks or months until a surgeon becomes available. Some die while waiting.

The Daily Telegraph reports the entire system "could collapse within a year without major changes and extra money. Senior doctors likened A-and-E units (accident and emergency) to 'warzones' in May, with medics fighting a losing battle to cope with an increasing tide of patients, while the head of the NHS watchdog said the system had become 'out of control.'"

This is what happens when big, lumbering, inefficient government seeks to provide health care. Why should the U.K.'s horrid experience with NHS matter to Americans? Because if, in a much smaller country, these and other horror stories abound, how much worse could it be when our big, lumbering, inefficient government launches Obamacare? What impact will it have on U.S. hospitals and health care providers? Instead of merely mandating insurance coverage to the uninsured, will our government eventually begin dictating what surgeries and treatments it will pay for based on what a bureaucrat deems cost-effective? It's only a short step from overseeing health insurance to more intrusive oversight of medical care in general.

Everyone in the U.K. might have access to health care, but they are often forced to accept inferior health care. Will Obamacare result in Americans patiently waiting 4 1/2 months between a referral and an appointment with a specialist or surgeon? Will Americans have to wait weeks, or months, for treatment or surgery, in some cases, risking death?

With Obamacare scheduled to begin phasing-in on Oct. 1, in order to avoid what Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) has called a "train wreck," these questions need answers.

Attention Washington wonks, hack and enablers: The way to raise the minimum wage and create jobs is very simple. It doesn’t take an act of Congress or an executive order; it doesn’t take a bi-partisan commission; and it’s wholly, 100 percent, ultra-constitutional.

I know the idea that it’s constitutional probably worries you, but hang on and hear me out.

The way to raise the minimum wage is to get out of the way and let the economy create jobs. 

Bing! Both problems solved.

The economy is very good at creating jobs and wages. The private economy has been creating jobs and wages since the profit motive was introduced to the colonies.

And here’s the awful truth about you: all of you guys have proven to suck at creating jobs.

But even worse, looming over the economy, like a menacing storm—a storm created by the great gobs of hot air that always seem to follow him-- is your Dear Leader who wants us to adopt another of his can’t-miss, sure-fire 5-Year Plans.

The new plan is so great that the Obama administration won’t even tell us how much it will cost. I think people call that “priceless.”

I call it “jobless.”

Whatever else it will produce, it won’t produce jobs or increase wages.

All previous Obama “jobs” plans have produced so far is increasing misery and a wholly artificial crisis in capitalism.

The quantitative easing (QE) program is indictment enough of his job prowess, if people care to look at it.

While producing records amount of money stock through QE, the velocity of that money has plummeted under Obama. A whole bunch of money does no one any good if you can’t spend it.

And this is a political phenomenon not economic. Despite what commentators, liberals and Ezra Klein tell you, money isn’t moving robustly within the financial sector. The broadest look at monetary velocity, MZM, which includes financial assets, also has been plummeting for years.* In fairness it started under Bush, but accelerated under Obama.

Above: The Velocity of Money (M2) is Plunging.

So, the idea of speculation run amuck with jobs stuck in neutral because traders are making money is just a far left fantasy, not a reality. 

And don’t look for it to get better either. 

Now that Obama has announced that he’s going to spend more time on economic matters, there’s a growing consensus that Obama should go back to playing golf. I know a number of GOP leaders, members of the business community, legal scholars, janitors, movie theatre projectionist and mattress store sign wavers who would support a budget bill that would cover the costs for 180,000 holes of golf for Obama.

Perhaps he can play those holes back to back to back?

Because lost amongst the various mythical “wars” that Obama says are being waged on his left-leaning constituencies, is the simple fact that Obama has been terrible for the poor on job creation and wages.

Top-line unemployment for blacks is 12.6 versus a national average of 7.4 percent.  For Hispanics unemployment is 9.4 percent.

As I have written elsewhere, when you look at employment underutilization, you could easily triple the rates of the unemployed and the underemployed. I suspect for poor folks and underserved communities that the employment underutilization rate is even worse than the national average of around 24 percent. This would mirror the disparity in unemployment that we find in these populations. 

And then there’s Obamacare.

Despite what Ezra Klein told you, Obamacare is not a deficit fighter it’s a budget buster.
UPS just announced that they would be cutting the healthcare benefits of 15,000 spouses because insurance premiums for healthcare are going up, not down as Obama- and Ezra Klein- promised.

The city of Chicago has also announced that it will be transferring retirees from private health insurance paid for by the city to Obamacare paid for by you.

The fact that most job creation in this country has come at the expense of full-time employment-- and has been, in fact, only part-time employment—is largely due to Obamacare, as has been covered here and elsewhere.

But still it’s not too late for you to do something positive for our economy.

Midterms are right around the corner.

2014 is just five fundraising quarters away.

You need to face the facts: Obama IS the job’s problem in this country.

I dare you to argue otherwise.

I double dare you. 
*[From the St Louis Fed: The velocity of money is the frequency at which one unit of currency is used to purchase domestically- produced goods and services within a given time period. In other words, it is the number of times one dollar is spent to buy goods and services per unit of time. If the velocity of money is increasing, then more transactions are occurring between individuals in an economy. 

The frequency of currency exchange can be used to determine the velocity of a given component of the money supply, providing some insight into whether consumers and businesses are saving or spending their money. There are several components of the money supply,: M1, M2, and MZM (M3 is no longer tracked by the Federal Reserve); these components are arranged on a spectrum of narrowest to broadest. Consider M1, the narrowest component. M1 is the money supply of currency in circulation (notes and coins, traveler’s checks [non-bank issuers], demand deposits, and checkable deposits). A decreasing velocity of M1 might indicate fewer short- term consumption transactions are taking place. We can think of shorter- term transactions as consumption we might make on an everyday basis. 

The broader M2 component includes M1 in addition to saving deposits, certificates of deposit (less than $100,000), and money market deposits for individuals. Comparing the velocities of M1 and M2 provides some insight into how quickly the economy is spending and how quickly it is saving.
MZM (money with zero maturity) is the broadest component and consists of the supply of financial assets redeemable at par on demand: notes and coins in circulation, traveler’s checks (non-bank issuers), demand deposits, other checkable deposits, savings deposits, and all money market funds. 
The velocity of MZM helps determine how often financial assets are switching hands within the economy.

Donald Rumsfeld: Obama Has Created a 'Leadership Vacuum'

By Bill Hoffmann
  / Newsmax
President Barack Obama has created a "leadership vacuum" in the world and is partially to blame for Egypt’s woes with his attitude that everything there can be "warm and fuzzy," former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says.

"The people in Egypt believe we have been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood because we were eager for early elections, totally ignoring the reality that Adolf Hitler was elected in an election and then tried to consolidate power," Rumsfeld told Newsmax TV on "The Steve Malzberg Show"

"[Hitler] did successfully and caused a war. [Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed] Morsi has been trying to consolidate power and the people of Egypt have opposed it."

Rumsfeld, who served as Secretary of Defense under Gerald Ford and George W. Bush, said the "single most important relationship" the U.S. currently has in the Middle East is with Egyptian military, which recently ousted Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

That action that has put the country on the verge of civil war as the military clashes with Morsi supporters who want him and the Muslim Brotherhood reinstated.

Hundreds have been killed as the fighting continues — a tragedy for a country as vital to the U.S. as Egypt, according to Rumsfeld.

"Egypt's the most important country . . . kind of an educational center for the Arab world. We have an excellent relationship," Rumsfeld said.

"They have been the anchor in the stability with their Camp David Accord agreement with Israel."

But the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power has been a serious threat to that.

"It is an authoritarian theocracy. They're the ones who killed Egyptian President Anwar] Sadat [in 1981], they are determined to eliminate the concept of the nation state, they don't believe in democracy, they don't believe in tolerance," Rumsfeld said.

Unfortunately, he added, Obama "started out with an attitude, a view point . . . and believed that by apologizing and talking to [the Brotherhood] that everything could be nice and warm and fuzzy.

"Right now the Middle East is in turmoil . . . Somebody has to step up and, I mean think what Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War. He imposed Martial Law and suspended habeas corpus.

"He had to otherwise the United States wouldn’t have been orderly, it wouldn't have been able to function."

Rumsfeld said Secretary of State John Kerry has really been dealt an "enormously difficult hand" in being appointed to the post this year.

"He is faced with a series of bad policies and bad actions by the Hillary Clinton State Department and the Obama White House over a period of four and a half years . . . All the momentum is in the wrong direction," he said.

"The behavior of the administration has been to create a leadership vacuum in the world and that vacuum is being filled by people who don't have our values, who don't have our interests.

"If that [Egypt] turns to civil war and the Suez Canal is closed or the Muslim Brotherhood breaches the agreement with Israel, [Obama is] going to wish he had taken sides."

The latest accusations by Syrian rebels that the Assad government used deadly chemical weapons, reportedly killing hundreds near Damascus shows the "sad state of affairs" U.S. policy is in.

"When the United States says something or does something, it has an effect where that action has taken. But the other thing it has is an effect all over the world because other countries look at it and say, well, the president said this and he's not following it up," Rumsfeld said.

"Well, he either shouldn't have said it or he ought to follow it up because he's sending a signal that America is withdrawn, that America is in decline, that the contribution to a more peaceful and stable world that the United States has provided during my adult lifetime is over, that the United States is in decline.

"Why else would Vice President [joseph] Biden have to stand up and say we're not in decline? That says we are in decline because people know it, they smell, they can feel it."

Commenting on the sentencing of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years behind bars for leaking classified U.S. documents to Wikileaks, Rumsfeld believes it is too lenient.

"He deserves to be punished seriously. The idea of someone who engaged in that kind of action — harmful to the United States of America and to the American people — getting out in a relatively short period is certainly a signal to others that they can get away with murder."

The knife is plunged into Israel's back...again  
By: Diane Sori

Well…Barack HUSSEIN Obama is ‘aiding and abetting’ the enemy yet again as this time he’s giving another $148 million of our taxpayer dollars to what he calls ‘Palestine’…which is quite odd as there is NO country called ‘Palestine’. Obama really needs some geography lessons, but what can you expect from the man who thinks there are 57 states in the Union.

But hey, there are 57 islamic states in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation…the so-called ‘collective voice of the muslim world’…so I guess that was easy for him to confuse with US states, and was what he meant when he said he visited all 57 states (said sarcastically with eyes rolling upward).

Clarifying his words by saying that the money will actually go to support the Palestinian Authority’s government of Mahmoud Abbas (translation: just another band of terrorists) so they can address the ‘supposed’ critical economic and humanitarian hardships facing the Palestinian Authority and the so-called (but non-existent) Palestinian people is quite ambiguous at best for it seems all the monies we give them usually end up going into securing guns, weapons, and rockets to use against Israel. But Obama still bloviates that ‘US national security interests’ are the reason for his new decision to send them even more monies, and with that as his excuse Obama gave Secretary of State John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry authorization to issue a waiver on the restriction of funds Congress put in place after the Palestinian Authority submitted its unilateral bid for United Nations membership last September.

But, I’d really like to know what ‘national security issues’ the Palestinian Authority poses to the United States of America and I bet you would too.

And then Obama added to this slap in the face to Israel…for that is what aiding the Palestinian Authority is…by further stating that this was done to avert ‘a budget crisis’ and to promote the peace process, because according to 'Obama-logic' sending so-called aid is supporting US efforts to achieve a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But in reality what Obama is actually doing is once again funding a terrorist organization…the muslim version of what I call ‘sponges’ because they have always counted on foreign aid to subsist…and the cowards in Congress are letting him get away with it .

Oh, and by the way, how about if Obama cared about our own budget crisis for a change and stopped worrying about a budget crisis of terrorists…but I digress…

And in case you didn’t know, since 1994, the US has given the Palestinian Authority $1.3 billion in aid, and this is NOT the first time that Obama ordered a waiver of congressional restrictions for his muslim brethren for just this past March Obama gave $500 million to them by bypassing the very same Congressional restrictions.

And even with all this monetary aid coming into the Palestinian Authority’s hands supposedly to work for peace and the betterment of its people they’re still at war with Israel…still trying to lay claim to Jerusalem…and still aligning themselves with other terrorist groups like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood…Obama’s blood brethren and I guess that spells out the truth as to why he keeps sending them aid…shades of Egypt for sure.

And with an Obama spokesman saying that, “Direct budget support to the Palestinian Authority is the most immediate and efficient means of helping the Palestinian Authority maintain and build the foundations of a viable, peaceful Palestinian state” what is NOT being said is that the Palestinian Authority does NOT want peace with Israel…they want Israel, period.

So to that end this past Friday, Palestinian Prime Minister Rami el-Hamdallah signed a financial support agreement for an “$148 million aid transfer from the US administration to Palestine” and he signed it with US Consul General Michael Ratni…and signed it somewhere in the non-existent country of Palestine.

And once again Israel feels the knife digging deeper into her back put there by the same man who sides with the enemy in Egypt…the same man who has the blood of Benghazi on his hands…and the same man who wishes that Israel would become the 58th islamic state. And we all know who that man is…Barack HUSSEIN Obama…for sometimes a middle name does indeed say it all.
