Most of you have seen the 2006 clip of then-Senator Barack Obama speaking on the Senate floor about why it was the Senate’s duty to block George W. Bush’s supreme court nominee based on ideological grounds, but I couldn’t resist posting it.

In addition, here is a recent press conference during which Obama is asked about how his current position (‘Confirm my nominee even though I’m a lame duck’) squares with this 2006 obstructionist position.

His non-answer is hilarious, and disgusting.

Caught red-handed, mr. Obama.

In a post-9/11 world, is it wrong to wonder whether multiple train derailments and assaults on commercial aircraft are the work of terrorists inside the United States?

Consider that in the last year and a half, we’ve had the following events (emphasis added):

  1. 5.29.15  “The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that it was investigating a report of an unmanned aircraft being operated illegally near LaGuardia Airport around 11 a.m. today as a plane prepared to land. The crew of Shuttle America Flight 2708 said it had to climb 200 feet to “avoid” the aircraft as the plane traveled over Brooklyn at an altitude of 2,700 feet, officials said.   In addition, pilots on four commercial flights reported being targeted by green lasers during flights over New York on Thursday night, the FAA said.” <ABC News, link>
  2. 5.13.15  One of three conductors aboard the Amtrak train that derailed in Philadelphia this week told investigators she heard the locomotive’s engineer say the train had been struck by an object, National Transportation Safety Board member Robert Sumwalt said Friday. “She recalled that the SEPTA engineer had reported to the train dispatcher that he had either been hit by a rock or shot at, and the SEPTA engineer said that he had a broken windshield, and he placed his train into emergency stop,” Sumwalt said. “She also believed that she heard (the Amtrak) engineer say something about his train being struck by something.” <CNN.com, link>
  3. 2.17.15  An oil train was still on fire and leaking in West Virginia on Tuesday, a day after it derailed and erupted in flames, according to CSX Corp… The fires, which destroyed one house and resulted in the evacuation of two nearby towns, were left to burn out on Tuesday, CSX said in a statement. <Reuters, link>CSX derailment and fiery explosion
  4. 1.28.15  Service on the Metro-North Railroad was disrupted Wednesday evening after a derailment at Grand Central Terminal. The derailment happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when a Harlem bound train jumped the tracks as it was pulling out of Track 18 at Grand Central. <CBS New York, link>
  5. 12.1.14 Four people were killed and dozens more were injured when a Grand Central-bound Metro-North train derailed in the Bronx early Sunday, turning cars on their sides and throwing passengers into the air on one of the busiest travel days of the year as people head home from Thanksgiving gatherings. <NBC New York, link>Thanksgiving terrorism?
  6. 5.17.13  Two Metro-North Railroad trains collided after a derailment near Fairfield, Conn., at the height of the evening rush on Friday, injuring 60 people, 5 of them critically, and snarling transit corridors in the Northeast, the authorities said. <New York Times, link>

The patterns are evident: high value targets, large civilian dislocation and trauma, rush hour and holiday time periods…

The horrible derailment near New York City on 12.1.14, just after Thanksgiving, reminds me of the Boston Marathon bombing, which the Tsarneyev brothers apparently planned to coincide not necessarily with the race but rather with “Patriots Day” (the same day as the Marathon), a celebration of American heritage.

Patriots’ Day (officially Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts and Wisconsin and Patriot’s Day in Maine[1]) is a civic holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775. <Wikipedia, link>

Likewise, Thanksgiving is one of the most cherished national holidays we share as a country.

So, do we believe that all of these events are random accidents?

Do we believe that train conductors have “sleep apnea” or are otherwise making honest mistakes?

Do we believe that our nation’s infrastructure is in disrepair and that such accidents are inevitable? (On this last point, I think we can all agree that as a country we have under-invested in infrastructure and need to reassess our priorities (what say you, Liberals: billions for bridges and rail, or billions for amnesty and integration of 20 million illegals?).)

After compiling the above list of “accidents” I believe more than ever that under the regime of Barack Obama, we have become more vulnerable as a nation and that the terrorists are gaining ground not only in the Middle East, where ISIS is spreading its hate and violence and Islamic Jihad like wildfire into the void created by mr. Obama, but also here at home, inside the United States itself.

These attacks on our planes and trains seem to be the opposite of random, and the myriad story lines designed to keep citizens in a servile slumber are just that: propaganda and cover stories no better than the one concocted by Obama and Hillary Clinton for the Benghazi terrorism that left four Americans dead.

Will we wake up before it is too late?

Rudolph Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City and a man whose restoration of that city from the wreckage of David Dinkins to a shining city on a hill — a feat most thought impossible — will be celebrated and revered for hundreds and even thousands of years to come, has spoken the Truth about Barack Hussein Obama.

I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you and he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.

Such plain-spoken truth has most certainly provoked our thin-skinned president and his servile enablers, but like the voice of an adult among so many gutless and infantile politicians in both political parties, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani is making no apologies, and in fact is doubling down. Rudy Giuliani is not running for President in 2016, but if he were, I would consider joining his campaign.

Truth Teller

Truth Teller

Here are excerpts of his follow-up on Fox News, under intense questioning by Megyn Kelly, a Fox News host (from The Kelly File, link): KELLY: The president’s team also getting involved today. The Deputy White House Press Secretary Eric Schultz taking a shot at the mayor over his failed run for president saying, quote, “Mr. Giuliani test drove this line of attack during his fleeting 2007 run for the presidency. I agree with him on one thing, it was a horrible thing to say.” Here now to respond, former New York City mayor and former Republican presidential candidate, Rudy Giuliani. Mr. Mayor, do you want to apologize for your comments?

RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: Not at all. I want to repeat it. The reality is I — from all that I can see of this president, all that I’ve heard of him, he apologizes for America, he criticizes America. He talks about the crusades and how the Christians were barbarians, leaves out the second half of the sentence that the Muslims were barbarians also. He sees Christians slaughtered and doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference although he holds a press conference for the situation in Ferguson. He sees Jews being killed for anti-Semitic reasons. He doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference. This is an American president I’ve never seen before.

…. KELLY: A lot — a lot of Liberals don’t believe in American exceptionalism, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love America.

GIULIANI: Well, that I don’t feel it. I don’t feel it. I don’t feel this love of America. I think this man was — when I talked about his background, I’m talking about a man who grew up under the influence of Frank Marshall Davis who was a member of the communist party who he refers to over and over in his book, who was a tremendous critic of the United States.

This is a man who worked on Saul Alinsky who was a tremendous critic of the United States. I believe his initial approach is to criticize this country and then afterwards to say a few nice things about us.

KELLY: But when you say he wasn’t raised to love America, I mean, he was raised in part by his grandparents, his – his grandfather served in World War II, his grandmother worked in ammunitions plant to help the nation during World War II. I mean, to suggest he was raised by people who don’t love America, who don’t — didn’t help him learn to love America.

GIULIANI: Well, his — his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis who was a communist who the president says.

KELLY: He fought in — he fought in World War II!

GIULIANI: OK. You can fight in World War II and then you introduce someone to a communist and the young boy gets.

KELLY: It’s a political world view. It’s not a hatred for the country.

GIULIANI: Communism wasn’t a hatred for America?

KELLY: I’m talking about this particular — his grandfather, if he had a leftist view of how politics in the United States should run, does that mean he doesn’t love America? Doesn’t mean.

GIULIANI: Well, OK. Well, Kelly, how about being in a church of 17 years where the minister of the church says, “It’s not God loves America but God damn America.” Now, if you were in that church, wouldn’t you quit that church?

KELLY: Let me ask you this.

GIULIANI: Wouldn’t — I’m going to ask you that? Would you quit that church?

KELLY: Well, listen. That is not — it’s not about me. But it’s not — it’s not about me. But I want to ask you this because.

GIULIANI: But I know you would quit that church. And the reason you would is because you were brought up about how exceptional this country is, how wonderful this country is. I am saying, and I may be wrong, it’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it.

KELLY: Yes.

GIULIANI: I do not detect in this man the same rhetoric and the same language, the same love of America that I detected in other American presidents including Democrats and I think it guides a lot of the things that he says and a lot of the things he does.

KELLY: Let me ask you this, so I mean, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is — she’s all upset about what she said.

GIULIANI: Well, she’s always all upset.

KELLY: — just for the record. She — she didn’t condemn Barack Obama when he called George W. Bush unpatriotic. She had no problem with that and she had said a lot of incendiary things.

GIULIANI: I did not — did not call him unpatriotic.

KELLY: I know. But she — she suggested you did. And she had an — an issue with that.

GIULIANI: I did not.

KELLY: She — Barack Obama actually did call George W. Bush unpatriotic. And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had no problem with that. what I want to ask you thought because I have you here instead of her.

GIULIANI: OK.

KELLY: All right, is you went on Hannity’s show back in 2007 when you were running and this back when General Petraeus was — was testifying before Congress on the Iraq war and the surge and defending it. And MoveOn.Org had taken out an ad of the New York Times calling him “General Betray Us.”

GIULIANI: Right.

KELLY: And you were upset about that. You had the following exchange. I want to ask you whether it still stands. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, “HANNITY & COLMES,” SEPT. 13, 2007) HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE: The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief. GIULIANI: It comes on the same day as the MoveOn.Org ad in the New York Times accusing General Petraeus of being a traitor, this is a despicable attack. Hillary Clinton should disown and condemn MoveOn.Org. SEAN HANNITY, Co-HOST: You actually said these times call for statesmanship, not politicians spewing political venom. GIULIANI: Yeah, you know, I mean, what — what kind of civility is that? (END VIDEO CLIP) KELLY: And so I ask you the same thing, what kind of civility is that?

GIULIANI: I think that’s perfectly civil. I think that is a perfectly reasonable opinion. But the president and his comments if we look at all his rhetoric has not displayed the kind of love of America, the kind of love of American exceptionalism that other American presidents have displayed. That he has gone abroad (ph) and criticized us over and over again, apologized for us. Every time he does it, it embarrasses me.

I was in Europe a lot this summer and this fall. And all I heard about is the bigoted American Police Departments and I never heard the president of the United States defend the policemen of America, 800,000 of which put their lives on the line for us.

KELLY: What about — what about the critics who say you’ve hurt the GOP? Because now you’ve got some people coming out saying these Republicans, this is how they are. I mean, that’s what Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, she wants Scott Walker to disavow your comments. She’s — she’s the head of the DNC. But — but do you think you hurt the Republican brand?

GIULIANI: I — I — I do not think I did. And last time all the candidates for president wanted me removed from office is when I fought the RICO case against teamsters union, the only one didn’t reach (ph) was George Bush.

KELLY: Accusing them of racketeering.

GIULIANI; And — and that case was just settled successfully after 30 years of changing the teamsters union (ph). I’m right about this. I have no doubt about it. I do not withdraw my words. If the president goes and makes a speech and talks about what a great country this is, if the president could complete the following sentence, “During the crusades the Christians were barbarians and so were the Muslims.” if the president could say, “Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is our enemy,” I will applaud the president.

But until he does that, I will have doubts about his emotions, his feelings, his attitudes and the way in which he developed. We haven’t even mentioned some of the other communists and leftists who educated him as a young man. But all we need is Reverend Wright. Seventeen years in that church and that man condemned America over and over and over again, and he remained a member of that church.

KELLY: the president suggested he wasn’t there —

GIULIANI: I would have —

KELLY: — for those sermons.

GIULIANI: The other parishioners didn’t tell him about it? I would have walked out of that church in two darn seconds because I love my country.

KELLY: Mr. Mayor, thanks for being here.

GIULIANI: Thank you.

KELLY: All the best, sir.

The question on the minds of many people is why Barack Hussein Obama was noticeably absent at the highly publicized march for freedom in Paris on Sunday in the wake of the killings perpetrated by radical Muslim terrorists there.

Check out this photo of leaders who proudly marched in the defense of our way of life:

World-leaders-march

The leaders shown include, from left, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, EU president Donald Tusk, and Queen Rania of Jordan.

And mr. Obama?

Absent.

The Vice President of the USA?

Absent.

So the question, again, is: what drove Barack Hussein Obama to ignore such a public display of solidarity among Western and Middle East nations?

Rather than be coy about where I stand, I am going to come out and say, as I have many times, that I believe this president truly detests the United States and the Western tradition. I say this because of the many anti-American statements he has made over the years and because he sat for 20 years in front of a preacher who screamed “GOD DAMN AMERICA” and other America-hating phrases.

No, no, no. Not “God Bless America”; God Damn America! 

Reverend Jeremiah Wright <source>

Not only did Jeremiah Wright scream “GOD DAMN AMERICA!”, he also said the following a few days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01:

America’s chickens are coming home to roost.

That’s right: the man actually said that we deserved the 9/11 terrorist attacks that ripped our nation’s heart and killed thousands of innocents.

No individual who loves the United States could sit and listen to that kind of talk and not walk out.

But Barack Hussein Obama sat and listened and absorbed this kind of talk for decades, and from this and many other things he has said and written in his books I believe he maintains an animosity towards our country and one not dissimilar from various South American dictators such as Chavez and Castro, two leaders whom he publicly embraced.

If you loved the United States, could you embrace this man? No, I meant Reverend Wright...

If you loved the United States, could you embrace this man? No, I meant Reverend Wright…

Two men who felt a kinship.

Two men who felt a kinship.

Some have said that Obama did not show in Paris because he is a closet Muslim, but I am not prepared to make that accusation.

However, the one I am making — that Obama hates American and much of what it stands for — in my opinion could not be more damning given the office he holds and the oath that he swore.

He is a disgrace, and his destruction of our nation will echo through eternity as a moral crime of great consequence.

I love this statistic for several reasons:

Nearly two thirds of those interviewed after casting ballots said the country was seriously on the wrong track. <Yahoo News, link>

I love it because it is a damning indictment of the Obama regime on every level (“the wrong track” is such a comprehensive phrase — it could mean and does mean all kinds of things).

I love it because it includes the words “seriously on” the wrong track (that is, not just “on the wrong track“, but SERIOUSLY on the wrong track – WOW). I don’t recall this question being put quite that way before.

And I love it because it means that our nation is finally ready to wake up from the Obama delusion — these last six years of cult of personality, in which a man of no leadership experience, mysterious background, and openly anti-American views, ascended to the presidency.

The only question is why those who were polled did not affirm this belief at a 100% level.

This president, Barack Hussein Obama, has a strong connection to the word “illegal”, and a bipartisan group just confirmed again what we all knew, which is that Obama’s prisoner swap of the Taliban dream team — five senior commanders — for the traitor Bowe Bergdahl was illegal.

The Pentagon broke the law when it swapped Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders, congressional investigators said Thursday. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said the Defense Department failed to notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the exchange — a violation of the law — and used $988,400 of a wartime account to make the transfer. The Government Accountability Office also said the Pentagon’s use of funds that had not been expressly appropriated violated the Antideficiency Act. Five senior Taliban members were released from the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Sergeant Bergdahl, who disappeared from his post in Afghanistan in June 2009. <New York Times, link> <emphasis added>

Perhaps mr. Obama should change his middle name to “Illegal”, as in “Barack Illegal Obama”, given the long list of willful law breaking he has committed, including repeated re-writing of the ACA healthcare law, refusal to enforce existing immigration laws, and refusal to answer congressional subpoenas. (But then, I’ll bet Barry is happy to keep the middle name “Hussein”, don’t you think?)

NatGeo MedievalI was reading National Geographic this weekend (“Inside the Medieval World”) and found a beautiful description of the Magna Carta, that great foundational document of the anglo-saxon tradition of the Rule of Law.

Here are some excerpts from the copy:

“King John lost England’s French holdings after a series of unwise political moves.  In an attempt to wage war and reclaim the lands, he bore down on his subjects, collecting exorbitant taxes.  His frustrated barons rebelled in 1214 under the organization of Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who proposed that they present their demands to the king in a “great charter.”

The nobles drew up a list of grievances that formed a contract between the king and the nobility, guaranteeing the latter certain customary feudal rights…King John’s initial refusal to sign didn’t last long, due to the nobles’ threatening 2,000-knight army.

On June 15, 1215, King John signed and put his seal on the Magna Carta–marking the end of absolute monarchy.”

Note the prelude to this historic document of liberty: exactly 800 years ago, an unchecked central power was “bearing down” on “subjects” through “exorbitant taxation” to make up for its pushing the nation towards bankruptcy. Sound familiar?

And now, the key next sentence:

“It limited the ruler’s power to the written laws of the land and set a precedent for representative government.”

Isn’t it obvious that Barack Obama’s repeated circumvention of our nation’s laws, including the very Constitution itself, puts him squarely on the side of kings and against us all — the 99%?

Despotic regimes - Obama and King John 800 years apart

But lately we also see our institutions pushing back against this man and his destructive intentions and actions.

Regarding the Obama Justice department’s refusal to turn over documents relating to Obama’s gun-walking of 2,000 assault weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, this ruling just came down:

A federal judge has ordered the Justice Department to provide Congress with a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle over a failed law enforcement program called Operation Fast and Furious. <Fox News, link>

This ruling, although limited to providing a list rather than the documents themselves, is important in at least two ways, the first being its obvious check on Obama’s abusive and obfuscatory executive branch.  And the second way is juicy indeed: so often, the rulings of judges are themselves political in nature, and one wonders if our collective political lives are never able to transcend party affiliation, but in this case, we have cause for great joy:

Jackson, the judge in the current case, is an appointee of President Barack Obama.

Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the Congressional Oversight Panel, had this to say about the ruling <Politico, link>:

This administration has been so intent on hiding the contents of these documents that it allowed Attorney General Holder to be held in contempt instead of just turning them over to Congress. The privilege log will bring us closer to finding out why the Justice Department hid behind false denials in the wake of reckless conduct that contributed to the violent deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens.

And let’s not forget the House of Representatives lawsuit against Barack Obama in which the defendant stands accused in a very formal way of repeatedly breaking the laws of the land.

Unlike mr. Obama, who violates his oath of office on a near-daily basis, Congressmen and women and several federal judges are upholding their oaths of office by attempting to reign in this heinous and damaging executive regime.

Their actions are in the true spirit of the Magna Carta, and of the United States of America, in which no man is above the law.
