Speaker at DC veterans rally calls on Obama to "put the Qur'an down"

From Jihad Watch / Posted by Robert Spencer

The mainstream media is portraying Klayman as a nut, of course. How could any sane and rational person tell Obama to put the Qur'an down? Well, whatever is in his heart, and quite aside from the question of whether he is actually a Muslim, there is the pattern of his actions:
  • The State Department had an emissary in Egypt who trained operatives of the Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations in democracy procedures.
  • The State Department announced that the Obama administration would be “satisfied” with the election of a Muslim Brotherhood–dominated government in Egypt.
  • Secretary Clinton personally intervened to reverse a Bush-administration ruling that barred Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Brotherhood’s founder and son of one of its most influential early leaders, from entering the United States.
  • The State Department collaborated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Brotherhood, in seeking to restrict American free-speech rights in deference to sharia proscriptions against negative criticism of Islam.
  • The State Department excluded Israel, the world’s leading target of terrorism, from its “Global Counterterrorism Forum,” a group that brings the United States together with several Islamist governments, prominently including its co-chair, Turkey — which now finances Hamas and avidly supports the flotillas that seek to break Israel’s blockade of Hamas. At the forum’s kickoff, Secretary Clinton decried various terrorist attacks and groups; but she did not mention Hamas or attacks against Israel — in transparent deference to the Islamist governments, which echo the Brotherhood’s position that Hamas is not a terrorist organization and that attacks against Israel are not terrorism.
  • The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer $1.5 billion dollars in aid to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood’s victory in the parliamentary elections.
  • The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian territories notwithstanding that Gaza is ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.
  • The State Department and the administration hosted a contingent from Egypt’s newly elected parliament that included not only Muslim Brotherhood members but a member of the Islamic Group (Gamaa al-Islamiyya), which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization. The State Department refused to provide Americans with information about the process by which it issued a visa to a member of a designated terrorist organization, about how the members of the Egyptian delegation were selected, or about what security procedures were followed before the delegation was allowed to enter our country.
  • On a trip to Egypt, Secretary Clinton pressured General Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of the military junta then governing the country, to surrender power to the parliament dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the then–newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, a top Brotherhood official. She also visited with Morsi; immediately after his victory, Morsi had proclaimed that his top priorities included pressuring the United States to release the Blind Sheikh. Quite apart from the Brotherhood’s self-proclaimed “grand jihad” to destroy the United States . . . the group’s supreme guide, Mohammed Badie, publicly called for jihad against the United States in an October 2010 speech. After it became clear the Brotherhood would win the parliamentary election, Badie said the victory was a stepping stone to “the establishment of a just Islamic caliphate.”

"Rallier tells Obama to 'put the Quran down,'" by Ashley Killough, Shannon Travis and Brian Rokus for CNN, October 13 (thanks to Menis):
Washington (CNN) - Angered by the closure of national landmarks due to the partial government shutdown, a crowd of conservatives removed barricades Sunday at the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial as they rallied against President Barack Obama and Democrats for their role in the ongoing stalemate. 
High-profile speakers with close ties to the tea party appeared at the event, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
The rally, billed as the "Million Vet March on the Memorials," drew far fewer than a million people and evolved into a protest that resembled familiar tea party events from 2009, with yellow "Don't Tread On Me" flags throughout the crowd and strong anti-Obama language from the podium and the audience.
One speaker went as far as saying the president was a Muslim and separately urged the crowd of hundreds to initiate a peaceful uprising.
"I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up," said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group....

Establishment Republicans Exposed, Terrified

Establishment Republicans Exposed, Terrified As Ted Cruz Expands Conservative Reach

Last week, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has earned a reputation for being hated by Democrats and Republican Party elders alike, spoke to a gathering at the Value Voters Summit. The Senator wasted no time criticizing the White House and his GOP detractors, sending a message that he’s on a mission to change the way Washington works to the benefit of conservatism.

Cruz lamented that the Administration of Barack Obama is determined to “violate every single one of our Bill of Rights” and that establishment Republicans have failed time and again to sufficiently push back against the President’s progressive policies.

According to the Senator, conservatives must act now or risk sending the Nation down the road to ruin.

“We can’t keep going down the road much longer. We’re nearing the edge of a cliff, and our window to turn things around I don’t think is long — I don’t think it’s 10 years,” he said.

Cruz blamed the Republicans’ inaction in fighting Obama’s big-spending and unConstitutional policies on establishment politicians’ unwillingness to take political risks to execute the will of their constituents.

“If there is one overall strategy in Washington it is risk aversion,” Cruz said, calling out fellow Republicans who have not stood with him in his crusade against Obamacare. “We went over their heads — to the American people.”

The possible 2016 Presidential contender went on to say that the idea that true conservatism isn’t politically viable is a myth perpetuated by the mainstream media.

“The greatest trick the left has ever played is to convince conservatives we cannot win. The media will tell us that believing in free market values, believing in the Constitution, believing in freedom are extreme views. It is a lie,” he said.

Cruz was joined at the Value Voters Summit by Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), as well as Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who addressed the crowd via video.

Past gatherings of the Summit have featured politicians like former Senator Rick Santorum, who, unlike Cruz and Paul, paid far more lip service to issues close to the hearts of evangelical Christians.

The inclusion of speakers who are less interested in moral crusading and more interested in protecting the values of Christian conservatives through small government could represent a shift that will allow Republicans to gain more appeal among nonreligious voters in coming elections, while still satisfying those conservatives heavily concerned with social issues.

“This is not a fundraiser, nor an endorsement of U.S. Senator Rand Paul or U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, just a great opportunity for you to get to know them and discuss your ideas and views with them and hear of their lives, faith, and respective vision for our nation,” organizer Robert Fischer wrote in an email invitation to evangelical Christian leaders.

While Cruz was well-received by the crowd, there were some hecklers present as he spoke, to whom he replied: “It seems President Obama’s paid political operatives are out in force today. And you know why? Because the men and women of this room scare the living daylights out of them.”

It is just as likely, however, that establishment Republicans could have sent “paid political operatives” to heckle the Tea Party Senator as he spoke, as members of the Party’s old guard have taken every opportunity to criticize Cruz and his allies in recent weeks.

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) attacked Cruz late last week, saying: “To somehow think that we were going to repeal Obamacare, which would have required 67 Republican votes [in the Senate] was a false premise, and I think we did the American people a great disservice. … We started out with a false premise on this side of the aisle. Shouldn’t we be embarrassed about this? Shouldn’t we be ashamed?”

And Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) has barely been able to complete a sentence in recent weeks without tossing in a criticism of Cruz, who he blames for “hijacking” the GOP.

“I don’t consider these guys conservatives. I think the party is going in an isolationist trend. It’s appealing to the lowest common denominator in many ways. And this whole threat of defunding the government, to me, is not conservative at all,” King told POLITICO, later adding: “Maybe we do live in different worlds. These guys from the Ted Cruz wing live in their own echo chamber.”

In a separate interview with Bloomberg, King shrieked, “We can’t allow 30 or 40 people to hijack the Republican Party. We’ve got to call them on it. We can’t allow a small minority of a party to hijack it and, again, cause catastrophic problems, not just for our party — that’s our problem — but for the country. It’s 800,000 people out of work because of 30 or 40 people.”

Fortunately for Cruz, GOP lawmakers like McCain and King have sidestepped the wishes of conservative voters on so many occasions that they are likely to be to be viewed by conservative voters as lukewarm conservatives of the Mitt Romney variety, which was proven unpopular among that voter bloc in the past two Presidential elections.

And what Cruz lacks in popularity in elitist GOP circles is made up for by some pundits with major reach among conservative voters coming to his defense.

On Thursday, FOX pundit Charles Krauthammer ridiculed Cruz and his allies as being part of the “kamikaze brigade” and the “suicide caucus,” and claimed that the Tea Party lawmakers didn’t have a plan going in to the “delusional” defund strategy.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh quickly jumped to Cruz’s defense on his nationally syndicated radio show, saying that the Republican Party is simply attempting to cover for failing to take any real action to defeat Obama’s policies by portraying lawmakers like Cruz as “reckless amateurs who almost brought down the government” and portraying the “mature establishment types” as ones “who know what they are doing.”

“None of this would be happening if it hadn’t been for the defund and delay strategy of Cruz and [Senator Mike] Lee and the people who joined them,” Limbaugh said. “So the point is that the establishment is still hell-bent on demolishing and discrediting the Tea Party and the ‘Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and whoever else was involved’ coalition.”

Limbaugh went on to note that if “Lee and Cruz had not done this, Obamacare would be fully funded, the debt limit would have been increased,” and “because Lee and Cruz insisted on this, the Democrats were exposed.”

“If it hadn’t been for Cruz and Lee, we wouldn’t be having this conversation about Obamacare or entitlement spending or the debt or the debt limit,” Limbaugh declared. “We wouldn’t see Obama’s approval ratings plunging. We wouldn’t be as focused on the failure of the Obamacare website as we are, I guarantee you. It’s all combined here.”

The radio host concluded by crediting Cruz and company with forcing Republicans to fight, rather than roll over and accept Democrat demands as they have in past budget debates.

“If Ted Cruz and Mike Lee hadn’t done that, you know where we’d be right now?” Limbaugh asked.

“The Republicans would have long ago caved. We would have Obama fully implemented. We’d have the debt limit raised. It would have been a grand-slam, slam-dunk win for Obama and the Democrats.”

Heroes of America...

An evening with...

Three more days to go to one amazing evening with 

Sticks and stones do break bones but Obama and crews words will come back to bite them
By: Diane Sori

Ahhh…the cacophony of vile words spewing from the mouths of the left over these past few weeks would be quite funny if it wasn’t so sad a commentary on how low the Democrats will sink to defame and dishonor their Republican colleagues who sit just across the aisle.

According to Barack HUSSEIN Obama, ‘Prince Harry Reid’, Wicked Witch of La-Lafornia Nancy Pelosi, Al Bore…I mean Gore…and a host of Democratic Senators and speech writers, we Republicans and TEA Party members are extortionists, hostage-takers, terrorists, saboteurs, anarchists, squealing political pigs, arsonists, and murderers.

Such nice words emanating from the mouths of the party of political correctness aren’t they…and all because we Republicans and Tea Party members rightly oppose the nightmare that is ObamaCare, and because we know the truth about the debt ceiling shenanigans with its Obama scare tactics of crying wolf over a possible default on our notes due…which by now you should all know is pure nonsense for ONLY the interest on the notes is due and we have 5 times the monies on hand needed to meet those obligations.

“The only phrase that describes it (what the Republicans are doing) is political terrorism,” so says former VP Al Gore…the expert (in his own mind) on global warming and inventor of the internet…or so he claims…LOL

As if anyone takes him seriously anymore…that is if they ever did.

And then there’s this one alluding to the TEA Party from none other than ‘Prince’ Harry Reid, “…the anarchists have taken over. They’ve taken over the House, now they’re here in the Senate.”

Guess what…we so-called TEA Party anarchists…which by the way we are anything but…are here to stay as our numbers continue to grow by leaps and bounds every day. After all, someone has to keep the Republicans in line now don’t they.

And from Obama himself…the man who has NOT allowed a budget to be passed by the Senate in five years because he has NOT gotten his way loves to bloviate that, “They (the Republicans) refuse to pass a budget unless I let them sabotage ObamaCare, something they know is not going to happen.”

Notice how Obama calls what is actually ‘The Affordable Care Act’ ObamaCare… narcissist that he is just loves hearing his name. We call it ObamaCare for a totally different reason, wink, wink.

But I digress…NO…we need NOT sabotage his precious ObamaCare…we don’t have to do a thing really as it’s dying on its own without any help…as in the website people need to log onto in order to sign up…a website costing we taxpayers $634 million to construct…is a complete and total operational disaster…as in it simply does NOT work.

Just like the man whose name it bears.

Oh and by the way, remember how Obama claimed that millions would be flocking to sign up for his oh so wonderful (anything but) affordable health care…well in ObamaCare’s first week of sign-ups ObamaCare’s main sign-up engine…glitches aside…attracted just 6,200 new customers on day one and just 51,000 after the first week…only 51,000 thousand people signed on out of the millions Obama thought would be beating down the doors…that says a lot now doesn’t it. And with The Congressional Budget Office saying ObamaCare needs at minimum of 7 million customers to stay afloat financially these numbers ring morbidly of a bill that will die on its own.

But back to the words we go…leading this list of so NOT nice what should be kumbaya Democratic words, is the word’ extortion’…a word Obama let freely slip from his traitorous lips and insinuated over and over countless times during the last few weeks.

Extortion: the crime (and YES what Obama is doing is a crime…a crime against America) of obtaining money or some other thing of value by the abuse of one’s office or authority.

‘By the abuse of one’s office or authority’…NO better words can be said to describe Obama’s unbending and unyielding refused to give ground…to negotiate…to compromise…in his and Prince Harry’s own doing of a fiscal confrontation with Republicans…a confrontation over Obama’s demanding that the debt ceiling be raised.

Obama’s threatening that he would ONLY negotiate on budget issues if Republicans agree to re-open the federal government and raise the debt limit with no conditions BEFORE he comes to the table is out an out extortion…as in do what I want and you still will get NOTHING.

Obama really must think Republicans are fools NOT to know that once they give in to his demands BEFORE negotiations are done it will be too late for them to do anything AFTER they’re done.

Obama might think that talk is cheap…Republicans know it is anything but… especially when extortion is the currency used.

And from the Wicked Witch of La-Lafornia…the botox queen herself…none other than Nancy Pelosi…came the words, “I call them ‘legislative arsonists.’ They’re there to burn down what we should be building up in terms of investments and education and scientific research, and all that it is that makes our country great and competitive.”

These words from the woman who does NOT believe in American exceptionalism …this woman dares to even mention the words ‘scientific research’ while she supports the very bill that will NOT only have 15 fat-cat DC bureaucrats deciding NOT only who gets what medical treatment and when...if they even get it at all…and will also decide what scientific/medical research will be allowed or deemed unnecessary…this woman has the unmitigated gall to call Republicans and Tea Party members arsonists…I think she needs to take a long hard look in the mirror and see who really wants to burn down what ‘We the People’ have built up…that is if her face does NOT crack and shatter the mirror while doing so.

And so the Democrats continued on and on with their vileness while the Republicans at least offered a compromise bill…which of course was turned down…proving that out of all the words the Democrats used against Republicans and the TEA Party these past few weeks, the one word I used best describes what’s going on in DC at the moment…extortion thy name is Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

Obama built it…Obama owns it…and hopefully it will be Obama and his minions downfall.
