Democrats are the masters of deceptive persuasion, meaning they will take our attention off something they have really screwed up and put it on something that's not quite so bad. And chief among those masters is he who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C.
For example, let's look at the bumbling idiot Jonathan Gruber, who has repeatedly said that the key for passing Obamacare was the stupidity of the American people.

When Gruber was called before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to explain himself, he ducked and weaved questions, to the point that even Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., couldn't take it anymore. He told Gruber he had just handed the Republicans "a public relations gift."

I was shocked when Cummings said that, because he was more concerned about the production of a Democratic nightmare than he was about getting at the truth of what Gruber had said. That is politics at its very lowest!

So what did the Democrats do to take the people's mind off this PR nightmare? (I can just see the White House and leading Democrats desperately trying to come up with something to distract the American people. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall as the panicked Democrats tried to find a solution!)

Voila! Let's release the Senate Intelligence Committee's report about how the CIA misled Congress and was illegally torturing detainees in the war on terror on the very same day as Gruber's congressional grilling!

For those who are living on a political island, it's called wag the dog, a strategy in which a leader diverts negative attention away from a politically damaging issue to an issue of allegedly greater significance, which often builds up his character and reputation while tearing down his opponents.

President Obama's executive amnesty will enable millions of illegal immigrants to collect billions in tax credits once Obama's plan is fully implemented.

Currently illegal immigrants already collect more than $4 billion in tax credit payments every year. A 2011 IRS Inspector Generals report found that "individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States" collected $4.2 billion in Additional Child Tax Credit payments in 2010 alone.

The ACTC is the refundable portion of the Child Tax Credit available to all tax payers. Refundable credits are payments from the U.S. Treasury to a tax payer when the value of a credit exceeds the amount of taxes a person owes.

Even before Obama's latest amnesty program, millions of illegal immigrants already paid federal taxes to the government using Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers. It is these ITINs that illegal immigrants already use to claim billions in ACTC checks from the government every year.

However, thanks to a 1996 law, the IRS is not allowed to give Earned Income Tax Credits to anyone without a Social Security Number. But many illegal immigrants will now be able get a SSN through Obama's amnesty program. After it is fully implemented, therefore, the IRS will be giving out EITC payments to millions of currently illegal immigrants.

And just how many billions in tax credit payments are we talking about?

The EITC program is much bigger than the ACTC program. About $62 billion was spent on the EITC in 2012 compared to just $26 billion on the ACTC. And while the average refundable ACTC payment is about $1350, the average refundable EITC payment is about $3,000. That means that while the federal government currently pays illegal immigrants about $4 billion through the ACTC program, they are almost certain to pay illegal immigrants almost double that through the EITC program.

So not only will many illegal immigrants not being paying taxes under Obama's amnesty program, they will, in fact, be getting checks from U.S. taxpayers instead.

Pamela Geller, WND Weekly Column: ‘There are no lone wolves in the jihad war’

Did you read my column yesterday in WND?

Islamic supremacists and their leftwing lapddpgs didn’t even wait for the bodies to be counted in the latest jihad slaughter in Sydney before the propaganda putsch began — “fear of reprisals” (which never happen), “islamophobia” and “backlash-o-phobia.”

Sheriff Babeu: Immigration Order Will Defer 20M Deportations

By Cathy Burke / NEWSMAX

As many as 20 million undocumented immigrants will qualify for President Barack Obama's deferred deportation action, says Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona.

The number would be an alarming increase from the estimated 5 million initially expected to qualify under the executive action.

But in a Monday interview on Fox News' "Your World With Neil Cavuto," Babeu contended that the new figure came directly from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

"The fact is, it's not just the 5 million that President Obama promised, we learned that Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security, put out a six-page memo and he said that anybody who's been here since January of this year, anybody prior to that date, they are allowed to stay here. There will be deferred action," Babeu told Cavuto.

"This number that President Obama promised would be 5 million is now 20 million illegals."

Asked to clarify how he knows the number jumped to 20 million, Babeu insisted it was straight from Johnson.

"President Obama said on TV, 'if you've been here five years or more, there will be deferred action, that you'll be given a work permit, a driver's license, all access to our social programs,'" Babeu explained.

"But Jeh Johnson, the very same day, put out a memo directed to all 23 agencies under the Department of Homeland Security saying that any illegal who's been here this year as of January of 2014, they are entitled to this deferred action."

Babeu said that interpretation would surely mean the situation for states along the nation's southern border "is going to get worse"

"It sends the wrong message," he said. "It's a big neon sign flashing … that make it to the border and you're home free."

The outspoken sheriff is the subject of speculation in Arizona that he may have congressional aspirations in 2016, according to the Arizona Republic, which notes the Republican has already filed his first contribution reports for a federal political action committee.

"Turn on Fox News and there he is, ripping President Barack Obama on immigration and tearing into Washington for its failure to secure the border with Mexico," political consultant David Leibowitz told the Republic. "Babeu is relentless on that issue — a poor man's [Sheriff] Joe Arpaio — and immigration is likely to remain a top-tier issue come the next election cycle."

Constantin Querard, another political consultant, said Babeu already has good name recognition around Arizona and noted that his "favorability numbers were last measured at 54 percent statewide and nearly 80 percent in Pinal County, and he is a proven fundraiser who could likely raise millions more than previous GOP nominees."

"So long as the Obama administration continues to pursue open-border, pro-amnesty policies, candidates who are demonstrably strong on border issues will do very well in border states like Arizona," Querard told the Republic.

"Since Obama's march towards amnesty shows no signs of slowing, that bodes well for potential candidates like Sheriff Paul Babeu, in 2016 and beyond."

SYDNEY SIEGE hostage taker told Barack Hussein Obama to stop hiding his (Muslim) religion

Bare Naked Islam


ISIS-supporter, Sheikh Haron (Man Haron Monis), the Sydney hostage taker, had an extensive website (currently down) where he posted open letters to assorted politicians. These included a letter to Obama written during his original campaign.

12 June 2008
Senator Barack Obama
713 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510 USA


Dear Brother Barack Obama

I got your message. Hiding the religion for political purposes is not permitted. When a Muslim is asked about her/his religion, she/he must tell the truth. You think it is permissible by Shariah law to hide your religion to achieve some positions to be able to help Islam and to give a better service to Muslims. You are wrong, Shariah law doesn’t allow you to do so, your reason for hiding your religion Islamically is not a legitimate reason.

You must rely on Allah (SWT) and avoid the satanic style of politics. If Allah wants you to be the President of the United States of America, you will definitely be the president, no matter you hide your religion or not, no matter you lie to American people or you tell the truth, so it is not worth to commit a big sin just for political purposes.

You will be apostate by denying your religion, I advise you to avoid such a big sin. You must have trust in Allah, you must always remember that  Allah has the absolute power to help you to become the President even if you tell the truth that you are a Muslim. Our rely must be only on Allah.

You will be the President but it doesn’t worth to be a President by selling out your religion, it is not worth to lose hereafter which is permanent life for this short term life. You will be the President but this is a test from  Allah to show to people that Senator Barack Obama chooses the right path or the satanic tactic. I advise you to be careful to pass this test of  Allah successfully. May  Allah guide all of us. Ameen.

Kind regards,

Sheikh Haron


Waterboarding Terrorists is NOT Torture 
By: Diane Sori

Torture...a word now being bantered around by the terrorist-loving liberal left solely to shame our beloved America...to shame those whose job it is to make sure payback for things done to America and Americans is indeed a b*tch.

And as the traitor Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Senator Dianne Feinstein continues to drone on and on about America's so-called shame...claiming shame without her or her committee ever having interviewed any of the CIA operatives who inflicted this 'supposed' shame upon our enemies...a question remains of, were the acts perpetrated upon the enemy's person actually shame in the guise of torture or just standard practices used by many nations to get much needed information from prisoners.

Before I answer that question we first must understand the nature of torture, its legal aspects and parameters. The Geneva Convention of 1949 and its Additional Protocols of June 8, 1977 contain provisions that prohibit torture and other 'cruel or inhuman treatment' inflicted upon 'individual dignity.' And in 1984 the U.S. signed... along with 74 other countries...an international treaty initiated by the UN against the use of torture. But what constitutes 'cruel and inhumane treatment'...in other words 'torture'...to one culture might NOT be considered so by another culture. However, most would agree that what could be defined as torture is the act of deliberately and with malice inflicting severe physical and/or psychological pain to someone either physically restrained or under the torturer's control and who is unable to defend themselves against what is being done to them.

And while in today's world torture still remains prohibited under both international and domestic laws of most countries...via the above said Geneva Convention and other such tenets as those from Amnesty International and the UN Convention Against Torture amongst others...,just know that torture, to some degree, is still routinely practiced by both the enemy and by the 'good guys' alike, but in the case of the 'good guys'... meaning the U.S...it's used for 'just cause' alone NO matter how hard the liberal Democrats try to have you believe otherwise.

But again, what are the specifics that constitute one an act of torture and the other just 'enhanced interrogation' techniques.

To begin, certain techniques now in question...techniques used during the George W. Bush presidency...now have the Democrats taking Obama's mantra of 'It's all Bush's fault' to a new level. And while Bush stated in the aftermath of 9/11 that "The United States of America does not torture," and although he signed the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 that addressed supposed incidents of now called detainee abuse, Bush made it clear that he reserved the right to waive this act if he thought it was needed to do so...and in NO uncertain terms it indeed was needed.

In fact, most of the techniques that were used during the Bush administration were sanctioned by our military including the use of yelling, loud music, light control, environmental manipulation, sleep deprivation, stress positions, 20-hour interrogations, and controlled fear (including the use of dogs) as acceptable techniques to be used against any and all enemies as the need warranted. And anyway terrorists...especially islamic terrorists...pose such an extreme threat that, I believe, governments should be freely allowed to use some degree of so-called torture if it helps gain information that saves innocent lives NO matter what the kumbaya Democrats or their America-hating president says.

But what's at the heart of this confrontation between the liberal left and the CIA is NOT something as simple as yelling or even sleep deprivation, but is the practice that was used by the CIA on only three GITMO detainees...three out of thousands that have been detained at GITMO...and it's the technique known as waterboarding.

Contrary to what Feinstein and her ilk want you to believe in their anything but truthful 'Torture Report' (please see my RIGHT SIDE PATRIOT partner and friend Craig Andresen's article on the specifics of this report at http://www.thenationalpatriot.com/2014/12/15/torture-report-is-all-about-liberalism-part-2/) is the fact that waterboarding was NOT born with the CIA but predates the Inquisition and has been used worldwide for centuries, waxing and waning as a preferred 'enhanced interrogation' technique. Simply, waterboarding relies on a person's innate fear of drowning and suffocating to coerce confessions, and while it does cause physical and mental suffering, it leaves no tell-tale marks on the body nor does it cause death, making it an optimum tool to get an enemy to talk.

And lest anyone forget, waterboarding was designed and is executed in such a way as to let the person it is done to live.

And something Feinstein selectively chose NOT to mention in her committee's traitorous report is that waterboarding has a long history in 'so-called' modern times as well, as it was routinely used by the Japanese in World War II, by U.S. troops in the Philippines and in isolated cases during the Viet Nam War, and by the French in Algeria. Waterboarding was also used in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge against their own people, and by the British against both Arabs and Jews in occupied Palestine in the 1930s. In the 1970s, it was extensively used in Latin America... most notably by the military dictatorships in Chile and Argentina.

Also, as late as November 2005, waterboarding was on the CIA's list of approved 'enhanced interrogation techniques' that was intended for use on 'high-value' terror suspects. And according to memos released by the U.S. Department of Justice in April 2009, waterboarding was still listed among 10 'enhanced interrogation' techniques authorized for use on al-Qaida operatives...especially for use on top-tier al-Qaeda operatives...you know like those who planned the 9/11 attacks...like those three it was used on.

And the fact is that over the years...over the centuries...thousands of people have been waterboarded, but sadly Feinstein and her truly vile ilk care more about the three islamic bast*rds directly connected to the horrific events of 9/11 then they do about the three thousand Americans who lost their lives that day or about the countless American troops whose lives were saved by the intelligence garnered from those three who were waterboarded.

However, the question that still remains is this...is waterboarding a form of illegal torture...and to that I say NO and I base that on the fact that there is indeed such a thing as 'legally' allowed torture under specific circumstances when it relates to terrorists. While we as a nation specifically outlaw American citizens from practicing torture in Title 18 of the U.S. legal code and allow for anyone who kills another person through torture to face the death penalty, this code applies to an act of one civilian against another and does NOT address what happens during a time of war.

So, do the torture laws that protect enemy combatants captured under the normal rules of war extend to terrorists...in the aftermath of 9/11 the Bush administration (rightfully) concluded that the Geneva Convention did NOT apply to enemies in the 'War on Terror' and therefore they were interrogated thusly. And the 'Rumsfeld Memo' (put together by Constitutional attorneys) concluded that under the Constitution and the executive authority it grants to the president in his role as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Bush was afforded 'wide powers' that superseded international and domestic laws concerning torture and thus gave him the ability to order terror suspects be interrogated using methods then that are today considered torture under international law.

In addition, this what was a 'legally' binding memo also allowed those who followed said orders to waterboard the three islamic terrorists to be immune from any legal prosecution under a 'good faith' defense...a defense which stated that the torturer was told beforehand that the act he would perpetrate upon a prisoner did NOT constitute torture.

Therefore, at the time the waterboarding in question by this committee was used by the Bush administration, waterboarding was legally allowed and did NOT constitute torture, thus making the entire argument of waterboarding three islamic terrorists a mute point...a point now proven NOT to be based upon the legal realities in effect at that time but to be based upon the emotions of one vindictive woman and her personal vendetta against the CIA.

So, the bottom line is that since the U.S. NO longer uses waterboarding as a tactic to garner intelligence why bring up something that happened almost a decade ago to three islamic terrorists who would kill us all if given the chance. Why NOT focus instead on our current national security needs as the threat of those like ISIS are moving ever closer to our shores if they are NOT already here. And why do those like Feinstein who claim that this 'American shame' must be exposed in the name of transparency instead worry about those they have now put in danger. They willingly forget that America is the greatest nation the world has ever known...that America has done more to free more people than any nation that has come before...so one has to wonder just why these known Obama minions bring this all up and bring it up now.

Well, a few simple words say it all...they must circle the wagons around Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his love for and protection of his islamic brethren is why...need I say more.
