How Obama lies about terrorism in order to justify closing Guantanamo prison


Is Barack Obama focused on protecting the American people? Is Barack Obama focused on protecting the American people?

How do you close a prison that contains senior terrorists who were captured on the battlefield while trying to kill American soldiers?

You have to lie to the American people, that’s how.

Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard explains:

Almost seven years later, much to Obama’s frustration, the facility remained open. Closing it had proved much more challenging than Obama had theorized as a candidate trying to win an election and a new president acting on his idealism. It turned out that the jihadists who remained in Guantánamo were there for a reason. Many of them were truly, as the cliché had it, “the worst of the worst.” Al Qaeda leaders, top Taliban officials, the men who planned the 9/11 attacks, veteran jihadists caught plotting follow-on attacks on U.S. interests, and even those al Qaeda operatives believed to be charged with…

More Global Warming Crap

Indyfromaz's Blog: The Thoughts of An Independent Arizonan

“Scientists who have recently attempted to detect an anthropogenic signal in regional sea level rise trends have had to admit that there is ‘no observable sea-level effect of anthropogenic global warming’,” Richard points out, listing four peer-reviewed studies published this year that have all come to the same conclusion.

In a paper published on May 18, Hindumathi Palanisamy at the Laboratoire d’Etudes en Geophysique et Oceanograhie Spatiales (LEGOS) in Toulouse, France and her co-authors explain that “sea level is an integrated climate parameter that involves interactions of all components of the climate system (oceans, ice sheets, glaciers, atmosphere, and land water reservoirs) on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales….

“Since 1993, sea level variations have been measured precisely by satellite altimetry. They indicated a faster sea level rise of 3.3 mm/yr over 1993-2015. Owing to their global coverage, they also reveal a strong regional seal level variability that…

Anatomy of a Brutal Tax Beating

International Liberty

Based on the title of this column, you may think I’m going to write about oppressive IRS behavior or punitive tax policy.

Those are good guesses, but today’s “brutal tax beating” is about what happens when a clueless leftist writes a sophomoric column about tax policy and then gets corrected by an expert from the Tax Foundation.

The topic is the tax treatment of executive compensation, which is somewhat of a mess because part of Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax hike was a provision to bar companies from deducting executive compensation about $1 million when compiling their tax returns (which meant, for all intents and purposes, an additional back-door 35-percent tax penalty on salaries paid to CEO types). But to minimize the damaging impact of this discriminatory penalty, particularly on start-up firms, this extra tax didn’t apply to performance-based compensation such as stock options.

In a good and simple tax…

Debunking Inequality Myths

International Liberty

I shared a very amusing column last year about “a modest proposal” to reduce income inequality.

Written tongue-in-cheek by David Azerrad of the Heritage Foundation, the premise was that society could be made more “fair” by exiling – or perhaps even selling to the highest bidder – America’s richest people.

David’s piece cleverly made the point that such a policy would dramatically lower inequality, but would do nothing to boost the living standards of poor people. Indeed, when you consider all the damage that would be caused if America lost its top entrepreneurs, investors, and business owners, lower-income people obviously would suffer immense hardship as the economy shrank.

Unfortunately, there’s no evidence that Hillary Clinton read his article. Or, if she did, she obviously didn’t learn anything. Her agenda, which is echoed by almost all leftists, is endlessly higher taxes to fight the supposed scourge of inequality.

Hillary vs. The FBI

Stately McDaniel Manor

Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 7.31.40 PMHow much of what America’s Secretary Of State does, says and deals with is classified? To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, she virtually never saw a secret, and certainly never sent or received one via e-mail. Of course, the FBI–as far as they can be believed these days–says otherwise, and Hillary begs to differ about their assessment too.

One potential indicator was released Friday afternoon in a traditional Washington DC pre-weekend document dump: the FBI’s notes of their interview with Hillary. About 1/3 of it was redacted, indicating that much was classified at one level or another. This is obviously an imperfect indicator, but if only 1/3 of what Hillary Clinton was responsible for safeguarding was available to our enemies, not only should she be in prison, rational people should not, for a moment, contemplate electing her to any public office.

Boom! Benghazi Hero: “I’ve Seen the Video” – Obama, Hillary Watched Attack Live, Then Lied

Socialism is not the Answer

Gateway Pundit

Benghazi Hero Says “We’ve Seen Drone Video” Obama, Hillary Knew It Wasn’t a Protest and Lied–

Hillary Clinton watched the attack live by drone video then went out the next day with Barack Obama and blamed a mysterious YouTube video no one had ever seen.

On Thursday Benghazi hero John Tiegen set the record straight.

Benghazi hero John Tiegen spoke with Deirdre Bolton Thursday on ‘Risk and Reward’.

Tiegen told Bolton he has seen the drone video of the Benghazi attacks. “They need to release them.” The live video the night of the attack proved their was no protest. Hillary and Obama lied to the country despite watching the video of the attack, live, while it occurred… And then they went to bed.

Thirteen hours later US heroes were still fighting off terrorists from the top of the CIA annex in Benghazi.

Free Trade Wins: The TTIP Is in Trouble

Mountain Republic

The problem with trade deals

Mark Thornton |

You have probably heard of the controversial TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the deal that Hillary Clinton can’t make up her mind on.

However, you probably have not heard of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). It is referred to as a free trade pact between the United States and the European Union. I only recently read about it in European media sources. Negotiations have been going on for years and it only recently surfaced because top European officials have declared it a de facto dead deal.

The Problem with Trade Deals

Such trade deals are inherently suspicious by nature. They invariably benefit large corporations to the detriment of the average citizen. As political scientist Kerry Chase has concluded “When groups that rely on scale economies and production sharing networks” i.e., big multinational corporations, “have political clout trading blocs are likely…

The West Needs Sharia Law – Pakistani cleric


According to a leading Pakistani imam, Islamists need to convince western civilizations that Sharia law is good and that we need it to root our the evils which possess us. His wise words must be music to Obama’s ears.

In a recent article, leading Pakistani cleric Maulana Zahidur Rashdi noted that Islam and the West are indeed in a clash of civilizations, as argued by U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

The article, titled “The Cultural and Civilizational Struggle Between Islam and the West,” was published by Roznama Islam, an Urdu-language daily published from Karachi and Lahore, which is known for advocating Islamist causes and pro-jihad arguments.

Maulana Zahidur Rashdi is a leading Islamic scholar who frequently writes in newspapers and has visited several countries to preach Islam, especially Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bangladesh, Iran, Kenya, Iran, Uzbekistan, India, the U.K., Canada, the…

Leaked Pelosi Email Exposes Democrats Duplicity Towards Black Lives Matter

PUMABydesign001's Blog

screenshot nancy pelosi 004_Fotor compressedIndependent Sentinel by S. Noble

Guccifer 2.0 leaked emails from Nancy Pelosi’s PC and one of them shows what the Democrats really think of Black Lives Matter (BLM). Democrats were only concerned about the political reaction to the “radical” movement, not in helping them.

In a memo that was marked confidential, recipients were advised to not email it to anyone and only discuss the listed best practices on the phone or in meetings.

They accurately describe the movement as “radical” and direct their disciples to listen to BLM’s concerns and meet with them, but “don’t offer support for concrete policy positions.”

Later on in the memo, it says, “Do not say ‘all lives matter’ nor mention ‘black on black crime.’”, adding, “This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists. This is the worst response.”

BLM seeks “to be part of the conversation,” but it also warned…
