Bomb Maker Bill Ayers celebrates Obama’s clemency for bomb maker Oscar Lopez Rivera

Everyone is talking about the release of Manning by Obama, but this little number who remains committed to terrorism poses future risk to all of us. He is still an avowed terrorist who will remain here in the USA, not be set free in some third world hell hole. I include a clip of Bill Ayers just for the record.

Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground bombmaker, celebrated Tuesday after his old Chicago friend Barack Obama commuted the federal prison sentence of Oscar López Rivera, another bombmaking terrorist.

Bill Clinton offered to grant clemency to Rivera along with 15 other FALN members in 1999, despite the group’s use of violence. Clinton said that he felt that the terrorists’ sentences were too harsh given their crimes. But Rivera refused to comply with one of Clinton’s conditions, which was to disavow the use of terrorism. Rivera was sentenced to 55 years in prison in 1981 on charges of seditious conspiracy, robbery, and transportation of firearms and explosives charges.

He was a member of the Marxist Puerto Rican nationalist group Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional, or FALN. The group carried out around 130 bombings across the U.S. from the mid-1970s to early-1980s, killing six people and injuring dozens more.

FALN’s most notorious attack was carried out in 1975 at the Francous Tavern in Manhattan. Four people were killed in the bombing.

Obama getting ready to commute traitor Bradley Manning sentence

Is it possible for Obama to express any further disdain for America in these final days of his administration? Why of course it is. Emptying Gitmo terrorists upon us, and why not signal leaking classified docs is not a big thing. Unless it concerns the Democrats. But we already learned that with the Clintons now didn’t we? Meanwhile that poor fellow who took a couple of pics inside a submarine and sent them to his mother will rot in jail because they were labeled classified.

Remember how outraged the Dems were roughly 5 seconds ago about Wikileaks and the Russians? Remember how that was treason? But that’s only when important things, like Hillary Clinton losing an election, come up. Not petty things like national security.

manningObama has put Bradley Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News.

A decision could come as soon as Wednesday for Manning, who has tried to commit suicide twice this year and went on a hunger strike in a bid for gender reassignment surgery.

Manning — then known as Bradley — was locked up in 2010 after swiping 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables and giving them to Wikileaks.

Obama slashes mortgage insurance premiums for subprime borrowers

With just ten days to go, Obama adds a little time bomb into the housing market. It’s as if we have learned nothing about the housing bubble and subprime borrowers. In case anyone may have forgotten what this election was about and why we may have dodged a bullet, I give you this story.

subprimeWhat do you do when a quick rise in mortgage rates suddenly threatens to tame home buying demand from subprime borrowers who, despite the lessons from the past, are still purchasing homes, en masse, with only 3.5% down payments and just enough monthly cash flow to cover mortgage payments?  Well, if you’re the Obama administration then you simply socialize the problem and force those higher mortgage costs on taxpayers.  Anything less would just be a hateful attempt to deny minority and low-income citizens their “right” to home ownership.

And while the Obama administration isn’t directly passing out tax dollars to subprime borrowers to make their monthly mortgage payments, its recent decision to lower the FHA’s annual mortgage insurance premiums by 0.25% is essentially the same thing since tax payers are still on the hook for the same risk but receiving lower premiums in return.  Per Bloomberg:

The FHA doesn’t make mortgages. It sells insurance, paid by borrowers, on loans protecting investors in case of default. The program allows borrowers to get a mortgage with a down payment of as little as 3.5 percent and a credit score of as low as 580, on a scale of 300 to 850. That makes it one of the most forgiving mortgage programs and popular among first-time home buyers.

Some in the real-estate industry have been calling for another fee cut and heralded Monday’s move.

“Dropping mortgage insurance premiums today will mean a whole lot more responsible borrowers are suddenly eligible to purchase a home through FHA,” William Brown, president of the National Association of Realtors, said in a statement.

The FHA last cut premiums two years ago. That cut, which came as rates dropped and lowered the annual fee for most borrowers to 0.85 percent from 1.35 percent, led to a wave of refinances.

Food Stamp recipients can order from Amazon, other online retailers

Here we go, another blast from Obama as he heads out the door. The already bloated corrupt Food-Stamp plan moves on to even more absurdity. I’ll throw in a flash back post to show how hard Obama has worked to bankrupt the USA.

Food-stamp recipients can use their taxpayer-funded benefit to order online from retailers like Amazon under a new Obama administration initiative that aims to facilitate the shopping experience for rural and urban residents. It marks the latest of many costly experiments by the administration to expand the fraud-infested program, which has seen a record-high number of beneficiaries under President Obama. To eliminate the welfare stigma, the administration renamed food stamps Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the rolls swelled to an astounding 46.5 million in 2016. This cost American taxpayers and eye-popping $70 billion, according to government figures.

food-stamps-2It’s the last thing that an out-of-control government program, long plagued with fraud corruption, needs. Under the Obama expansion SNAP has suffered a multitude of serious problems. Back in 2012 a federal investigation uncovered evidence that food-stamp recipients were using the benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. A year later Judicial Watch broke a story, based on testimony and other evidence provided by a whistleblower, about the U.S. government knowingly giving illegal immigrants food stamps for decades. That was followed by another disturbing scheme in which SNAP benefits were being sold online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter and ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.

FLASHBACK! Recall Obama minions held dozens of meetings on food stamps with Mexico 

The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress.

The initiative is one of several the agency has “to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law,” Vilsack told Sessions in the 24-page letter, dated Sept. 12.

They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls — in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico.

Valerie Jarrett claims Obama without scandals, let’s look at her corruption

Good old Val Jarrett is super proud that Obama has been just the perfect President, no scandals. After I read this I thought hmm, I haven’t posted about Jarrett’s corruption that should have put her in jail long before she got to the WH. So Valerie, you want to talk corruption? Let’s look at your housing projects where you made big bucks on the backs of African-Americans. Just so we do not forget her roots, her father in-law was head of Communist Youth.

President Obama has been squeaky clean, according to his closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett.

“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself,” Jarrett said in an interview broadcast on CNN Sunday.

The aide, also a close friend of Obama and his wife, Michelle, credited the first couple with being good people and getting good results. More

Here is a swell story about her Housing Projects for a starter today.

Thanks Valerie--Home Sweet Home

Valerie Jarrett: “Jarrett [managed] a controversial low-income housing project located in Obama’s former state senate district… [the] complex was considered ‘uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage… In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale — a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.’ …According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, Jarrett is also linked to a series of other shady real estate scandals involving convicted felon and former Obama fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko…”

Jarrett was also named in a 2008 Boston Globereport on Grove Parc, an immense housing complex largely funded by taxpayers and managed by her company. After burning through millions in public funds, Jarrett’s management skills resulted in a complex that was largely “uninhabitable.”

Earlier this year The Boston Globe reported on the stunning failures of Jarrett’s companies. “Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this [past] winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.”

Valerie Jarrett, a product of Chicago’s Daley machine, couldn’t manage a housing complex with millions in taxpayer funds. But I’m sure she could have managed, say, an overhaul of the $3 trillion health care industry. What could possibly go wrong? Ah shucks! And all those contracts???

Then there is always: Oh, Valerie, you are up to your eyeballs in this one. Jarrett-Van Jones- Obama-Acorn and a Chicago Bank/   Don’t miss it here for the full story!

In 2006, before his Presidential race, then-Sen. Barack Obama visited his father’s homeland of Kenya, and around the same times Shore Bank donated $1 million to that country to assist in micro-loan programs there. At the time, Obama officials said it was a coincidence that Shore Bank made the contribution to Kenya. Why I am just laughing myself silly!

Senior White House aide Valerie Jarrett appears to be the central figure in the Financial Services’ interest, according to Republican staffers with ties to the committee.

Valerie Jarretts Father-in-Law Vernon Jarrett Head of Communist Youth

It turns out that around this time, Vernon Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy – the youth wing of the Communist Party.

Chicago communist journalist Frank Marshall Davis was a national sponsor of American Youth for Democracy, as well as being a Progressive Party supporter.

Both Davis and Jarrett worked on the radical Chicago Defender newspaper and in 1948, both served on the publicity committee of the Citizens’ Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers

Later that year, Frank Marshall Davis moved to Hawaii, where he met and mentored a young boy named Barack Obama.

Vernon Jarrett stayed in Chicago, where he became a prominent columnist. Coincidentally he used this column in 2004 to urge black voters to vote in the 2004 Senate primaries for Barack Obama.

Recall Obama and his ‘Non-Religious’ Christmas and No Gifts for the kids

I thought today I would post a back in the day review of Obama and his non-religious fervor in 2009. Obama had arrived, and of course the Muslim thing was not discussed in polite company. But we had a couple of clues didn’t we?  Let’s take a look at his first Christmas. Later, by May, 2009 we would get a big clue. Obama’s cancellation of the national day of prayer.

But Obama has shown an unusual sensitivity toward atheists, the first president to mention non-believers in an inaugural address when he said, “For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers.”

But I digressed.

Obama Plan ‘Non-Religious Christmas’ at WH FOX

President Obama and the First Family were planning a “non-religious
Christmas,”
according to Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. Ms. Rogers reportedly told a gathering of former social secretaries that the Obamas did not intend on putting the Nativity scene on display – a longtime East Room tradition.

The account was reported in the Fashion and Style section of The New York Times. The White House confirmed to the Times that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive – but in the end – tradition won out – and the Nativity scene is once again in its traditional East Room spot.

Did you know that Obama does not celebrate Christmas? Obama Leaves the Gifting to Santa

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) tells People magazine in the issue out Friday that he and his wife, Michelle, do not give Christmas or birthday presents to their two young daughters.

Obama tells the magazine’s Sandra Sobieraj Westfall in a seven-page cover story that he and his wife follow the unusual practice because they “want to teach some limits.”

In the interview earlier this summer, Obama noted that they do spend “hundreds” of dollars on birthday slumber parties.

Michelle Obama told People: “Malia says, ‘I know there is a Santa because there’s no way you’d buy me all that stuff.’ ”

UPDATE: Jesus nearly banned at the White House Inn

Osanta

“The lunch conversation inevitably turned to whether the White House would display its crèche, customarily placed in a prominent spot in the East Room. Ms. Rogers, this participant said, replied that the Obamas did not intend to put the manger scene on display — a remark that drew an audible gasp from the tight-knit social secretary sisterhood. (A White House official confirmed that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive and whether to display the crèche.)”

Why Samantha Power lighted the U.N. Israel firestorm

Samantha Power. One dangerous woman who voted the infamous abstention vote regarding Israel at the U.N. This is a reflection of Obama’s sentiments as well. Let us not forget. I have posted ad nauseam about how dangerous she is. If we want to know why the gasoline was just thrown on the fire in Israel, it was she who has been lighting the fire throughout the entire Middle East, especially Libya.

Three women who brought us the new long war in Libya, 2012 Bunkerville. For how Samantha Power, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton broke the Middle East into a million pieces.

Commentary Magazine: (An excellent piece, well worth the full read on our gal)

 In a 2003 article for the New Republic, Power:  “The U.S,” she wrote, “came to be seen less as it sees itself (the cop protecting the world from rogue nations) than as the very runaway state international law needs to contain.”

Power wrote that America’s record in world affairs had been so harmful to the freedoms of people around the world that the United States could remedy the problem only through profound self-criticism and the wholesale adoption of new policies. Acknowledging that President Bush was correct in saying that “some America-bashers” hate the American people’s freedoms, Ms. Power stated that much anti-Americanism derives from the role that U.S. power “has played in denying such freedoms to others” and concluded:

U.S. foreign policy has to be rethought. It needs not tweaking but overhauling….Instituting a doctrine of mea culpa would enhance our credibility by showing that American decision-makers do not endorse the sins of their predecessors. When [then German Chancellor] Willie [sic] Brandt went down on one knee in the Warsaw ghetto, his gesture was gratifying to World War II survivors, but it was also ennobling and cathartic for Germany. Would such an approach be futile for the United States?

One thing is clear: The sudden emergence of Obama’s National Security Council Advisor, Samantha Power, and the “new theory” she is using as justification for action in Libya, has very serious implications for future military action against Israel. As John Podhoretz explains in the New York Post, the “reason” behind the Libyan military strike is not the traditional justification of “protecting the national interest.” It is a “new” standard called “R2P” or “right to protect.” This concept is being promulgated by the “one-world” order activists at the United Nations, like Samantha Power.
