Obama apology tour continues – Sorry Argentinians because….

I didn’t think we could get through his last tour of Argentina without a bow, bend or otherwise denigrating the U.S. This one is particularly annoying. One has to dig deep on this one. Try about 40 years. Meanwhile Obama supports the most repressive regimes, oh yes he does, and decries we didn’t support Democracy in Argentina? Then I give you a clip done in 2012. You decide.

It was 40 years ago that the Argentine military overthrew the civilian government that had been unable to deal with Marxist guerrillas and left-wing violence in general. What followed was a brutal suppression of human rights and murder on an unimaginable scale by the military.

It’s nice that the president found it within himself to condemn the “dirty war” that the U.S. did nothing to stop.

The U.S. did not openly support the military’s tactics, but we didn’t say very much against them either. This left an opening for President Obama to apologize to the Argentinian people for our lack of enthusiasm in working to overthrow a government battling a communist insurgency.

It’s a shame he couldn’t have found the moral courage to make the same criticism of the Castro boys. They’ve been disappearing people for 57 years.

“There has been controversy about the policies of the United States early in those dark days,” Obama said while visiting a memorial park in Buenos Aires dedicated to victims of the dictatorship.

“Democracies have to have the courage to acknowledge when we don’t live up to the ideals that we stand for. And we’ve been slow to speak out for human rights and that was the case here,” he said.

Bonus update: 

Published on Oct 23, 2012 – President’s apology tour four years ago.

President Obama says the idea that he went on an “apology tour” is probably the “biggest whopper” of this campaign. You decide.

Obama dances as the world burns.

Glad someone is having a good time. While the world burns. Next, will Obama try out on Dancing with the stars?

More good times with the Obamas, Valerie Jarrett, Grandma. Having a swell time here in Cuba. Wish you were here.

Obama’s 2009 stimulus gave millions to Filipino Vets

Recall the pork machine dreamed up in 2009 that was supposed to build road and bridges, the stimulus bill otherwise known as Porkulus? To the tune of $757 Billion bucks? It turns out that buried in the bill many Filipinos hit the jackpot. Go back 75 years and figure out who was fighting alongside us in the Philippines. Pay them bucks. That will get the U.S. economy moving won’t it. And just how do we figure out who really was with us and why now? This post follows yesterday’s post VA Outsources Vet Processing Benefits to Philippines.

….But hundreds of millions of dollars spent in the program went instead to elderly Filipinos, much of it virtually guaranteed never to make its way back to the U.S. economy.

Tucked away in the stimulus was a provision to pay $9,000 each to residents of the Philippines who fought alongside the U.S. in World War II. Those who had become U.S. citizens since the war got $15,000.

The stimulus payments — called Filipino Veterans Equity Compensation — started in April 2009. More than $225 million has since been paid to more than 18,000 Filipino vets. Slightly less than half of those now have U.S. citizenship, but may still live in the Philippines. The program was originally slated to spend $198 million.

Administering a program that writes checks to people for actions performed 75 years ago in a third-world country is not easy. Some Filipinos actually fought on the Japanese side. The VA tries to avoid rewarding enemy soldiers by checking names against lists confiscated from the Japanese army, but fraud is not uncommon.

“In order to combat high levels of fraud the office staff use a variety of methods, including using photographs and interviews to determine identity, verifying claims using forensic analysis, and using WWII Japanese records to determine whether a Filipino WWII veteran collaborated with the enemy during the war,” the Government Accountability Office wrote of VA operations in the Philippines.

Obama to visit radical mosque which receives federal funds

Obama To Visit Maryland Mosque Tied to Muslim Extremists, FEMA Grants & State Dept.

That is the headline. Why is this story worthy of a post? Because while we are distracted by the upcoming elections, Barry will be the most dangerous in my opinion. It is his last year. His Rasputin Val Jar no doubt has a laundry list of anti-American destructive activity for him, As bloggers, we no doubt will be the only sources to call any attention to these activities. I bring you this news that doesn’t take much to figure out. This mosque funded Hamas, and other nefarious activities. We are funding the mosque. Here we go:

Taxpayers have unknowingly been contributing to this mosque. Source: President Obama Will Visit A U.S. Mosque For The First Time | The Daily Caller

The Baltimore mosque President Obama has chosen as the first U.S.-based mosque to visit during his presidency has deep ties to extremist elements, including to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The White House announced on Saturday that Obama will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) on Wednesday. He has visited several mosques overseas as president but has resisted visiting one in the homeland. The purpose of the trip, according to the White House, is to “celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life.”

But ISB is a curious choice for Obama’s first domestic visit.

The mosque is a member of a network of mosques controlled by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a Muslim civil rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror case. Several executives with that organization were convicted of sending money to aid the terrorist group Hamas.

An imam who served at ISB for a total of 15 years has also been a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood network and has worked for an Islamic relief group that was designated as a terrorist organization by the Treasury Department in 2004.

While in Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency. That group’s parent organization is the Islamic African Relief Agency, which the Treasury Department says provided funds to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

Biden and Obama – showing support for Bernie Sanders

Isn’t this getting interesting? First we hear that Biden is “having regrets.”  This interview of his on CNN essentially disses Hillary and comes out supporting Bernie. I will throw in a reminder that back in the day, Obama when Senator, supported Bernie Sanders for Senator over the Democratic candidate in Vermont. The intrigue continues.

CNN’s Gloria Borger sits down with Vice President Joe Biden and discusses the prospects of Democratic Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

Here’s a video of Senator Obama endorsing socialist Bernie Sanders for Senate. (You will note his “Community Organizer” cadence in the clip.) He chose Sanders over the Democratic candidate.

Some of the quotes from the endorsement:Obama calls Bernie Sanders an “outstanding candidate”, Obama says “things can change”,Obama said “I want to make sure everybody is as enthusiastic as I am” concerning Bernie Sanders and “only a handful of wrong headed people don’t like him.” These amazing quotes are on this video the Obama campaign hopes you don’t see.Obama doesn’t seem to mind endorsing and hanging out with socialists.

Obama includes 3 million new immigrant workers this year, record Syrians in the plan

Paul Ryan as it stands, will include in the Omnibus Spending bill:

“Not only will the president be allowed to bring in the 85,000 refugees he has announced on top of current record immigration levels, but this will include at least 10,000 refugees from Syria who will subsequently be able to bring in their foreign relatives,” Sessions said, noting that all of the refugees “are eligible for lifetime government assistance and can draw funds from Social Security and Medicare at Americans’ expense.”At least 3 million foreign nationals were granted work permits, work visas, and green cards in 2013, with most being granted to individuals from Mexico, China, and India, according to the most recent data issued by the Congressional Research Service.

And why was none of this covered in the debate last night? Wonder why we are sick of the GOP and their lies? Record number of work permits with nothing being done by Congress to slow this down. Here we go:

While the 2014 numbers have not been disclosed, recent statistics provided to Congress reveal that work permits continued to be issued at record numbers, according to congressional sources and statistics provided to the Washington Free Beacon.

At least 3 million foreign nationals were granted work permits, work visas, and green cards in 2013, with most being granted to individuals from Mexico, China, and India, according to the most recent data issued by the Congressional Research Service.

While the 2014 numbers have not been disclosed, recent statistics provided to Congress reveal that work permits continued to be issued at record numbers, according to congressional sources and statistics provided to the Washington Free Beacon.

The total number of foreign workers in the United States stands at 26 million as of 2014, according to numbers issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

These numbers are likely to increase in the next year as Congress prepares to approve a sprawling funding bill that critics say will do little to alter Obama administration plans to boost work permits and visas, as well as permit some 10,000 Syrian refugees to relocate to America.

“The omnibus will fund 100 percent of the continued issuance of work permits, work visas, green cards and refugee admits, continuing to accelerate the U.S. beyond all known historical immigration precedent,” said a congressional source familiar with the yearly spending bill. “The U.S. presently has four times more migrant residents than any other country in the world, regardless of population.”

The U.S. immigrant population—both legal and illegal—hit a “record” 42.4 million in 2014, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Congressional critics, among them Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), have criticized the funding bill for giving the Obama administration a “blank check” on the immigration front.

“As currently written, this year’s appropriations bills … amount to a blank check for the president to carry out his refugee resettlement plans,” Sessions said in a recent statement.

More than 90 percent of recent Middle Eastern refugees who have come to America are on welfare, according to Sessions.

Congress up to vote on stopping Obama from taking over zoning laws

While our attention has been elsewhere, one of the most draconian acts of this administration can be stopped by Congress with the Gosar Amendment. Obama has plans to create “utopian” communities and decide who and what lives and is built in our communities. Please write your Rep. Please read the embedded links in the post below for this chilling attack on our freedom. Here we go:

This week marks the moment of truth for the effort to defund President Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation — a stunningly ambitious attempt to force Americans to change the way they live. AFFH seeks to use the power of the national government to create communities of a certain kind, each having what the federal government deems an appropriate mix of economic, racial, and ethnic diversity.

Stanley Kurtz frames the issue this way:

Who controls the zoning in your town — your local elected government or Barack Obama? Who controls decisions in your neighborhood about where schools, shopping malls, and apartment buildings are located — your local elected government or Barack Obama? Who controls whether you live in a densely packed neighborhood with real barriers to travel by automobiles, or a car-friendly bedroom suburb — you or Barack Obama? That’s what Congress is about to decide.

The Obama administration’s Housing & Urban Development department is embarking on a social engineering experiment that wipes out one of the fundamental functions of local government – making neighborhood zoning decisions.

Through its Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation, the president is seeking to diminish both liberty and local autonomy – hoping to supplant the foundational American ideal of equality of opportunity with the far left’s vision of imposed egalitarian outcomes.

The moment of truth has arrived because this week the Republican congressional leadership will decide how hard to push to include Rep. Paul Gosar’s amendment defunding AFFH in the Transportation Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill. The House passed the Gosar amendment this spring. However, it is far from clear that the Gosar defund language will be retained. That depends on how committed Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are to its retention.

Ken Blackwell (the former mayor of Cincinnati) and Rick Manning make the case for insisting on the Gosar amendment here. They argue that the amendment is necessary to protect the most fundamental function of local governments – to control over where and what is built in their community.
