Islamic State Gets Pummeled In First Ever Clash With American Troops After Attacking U.S. Base…

 

Didn’t Obama mention something about Americans troops not engaging in combat in Iraq? It’s GREAT our Marines ignored him again!…..Papa Mike

imageVia Inquistr:

American troops in Iraq had their first actual battle with ISIS troops, after the Islamist militants tried to overrun a base, an encounter that left the ISIS troops decimated and in retreat.

The attack took place near the Ein al-Asad base, which includes close to 100 U.S. military advisers. The U.S. troops, armed with “light and medium weapons,” and were able to inflict casualties against the ISIS fighters, forcing them to retreat, Shafaq News reported. The American troops were also aided by fighter jets, which directed air strikes against the ISIS troops that “silenced their heavy sources of fire.”

“US forces intervened because of ISIS started to come near the base, which they are stationed in so out of self-defense,” said Sheikh Mahmud Nimrawi, a prominent tribal leader.

One Woman’s Letter to Her Ex-husband’s New Wife is Going Super Viral and It’s Not Hard to See Why

image

 

A woman named Candice Curry wrote a letter to her ex-husband’s new wife Ashley Parish, and the reception of the letter has been off the charts.

Here is the full letter from Curry’s Women With Worth blog via our friends at Young Cons. Take a look for yourself.

To My Daughter’s Stepmom,

I never wanted you here. You simply were never part of the plan. Growing up and dreaming of my family I never included you. I didn’t want help from another woman to raise my child. The plan was for my family to include me, daddy and our children, not you. I doubt you ever wanted me in your life. I doubt you planned to mother a child that you didn’t give birth to. I can bet that your plan for your family included you, daddy and your children together, not me or my daughter. I can almost bet that when you dreamed of becoming a mother it would be the day you gave birth and not the day you married your husband. I’m pretty sure you never planned on me being here.

But God has plans that far exceed our own and when my little family dissolved to form two families I knew you would be coming.

In my mind you would be a terrible beast and my daughter would not want you to mother her at all, ever! I was hoping that you would be semi unattractive and prayed my daughter wouldn’t look up to you. Her daddy would know that he was settling for second best. Evil swirled in me because I never wanted to face the fact that another woman would mother my child in my absence.

Then you arrived.

Federal Judge Says: Obama Immigration Actions “UNCONSTITUTIONAL”

A federal judge has declared parts of President Obama’s immigration executive actions unconstitutional, in the first court opinion to tackle Obama’s controversial policy changes.

In an opinion filed Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Arthur Schwab, in Pennsylvania, said Obama’s immigration actions are invalid and effectively count as “legislation” from the Executive Branch.

“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional,” the judge wrote.

Barbarian MURDERING Savages!

image
Didja hear the latest from the Religion of Peace? Didja hear what these barbarian savages did in Pakistan?

Militants from the Pakistani Taliban have attacked an army-run school in Peshawar, killing 141 people, 132 of them children, the military say.

Officials say the attack in the north-western city is over, with all the attackers killed. Seven militants took part in all, according to the army.

Big brave MUSLIMS. Killing unarmed women and children.

The attack – the Taliban’s deadliest in Pakistan – has been widely condemned.

Ya think? But what is anyone gonna do about it? Nothing. Certainly not the rest of the Islamic world. After all, these people were killed in the name of Islam. Such a wonderful religion.

Describing the attack from his hospital bed to the BBC’s Shaimaa Khalil, Shahrukh Khan, 17, said a gunman had entered his classroom and opened fire at random.

As he hid under a desk, he saw his friends being shot, one in the head and one in the chest. Two teachers were also killed.

Unarmed women and children. Brave, brave Taliban. What wonderful people.

A Taliban spokesman told BBC Urdu that the school, which is run by the army, had been targeted in response to military operations.

Hundreds of Taliban fighters are thought to have died in a recent offensive in North Waziristan and the nearby Khyber area.

Since they’re too cowardly to take on the army, they killed a bunch of civilians. I’ll bet there were a lot of cries of “Alahu akbar” from these barbarian savages.

US President Barack Obama said terrorists had “once again shown their depravity” while UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said it was “an act of horror and rank cowardice”.

Yeah. I’ll bet that has them quivering in terror. What’s the UN gonna do? Nothing. As for the US? I don’t really give a flying fuck. These are MUSLIMS killing other MUSLIMS but it does show the real face of Islam and they have no qualms about doing the same thing to Christians, Jews, or anyone else. They just like to kill. They’re not just barbarian savages they’re animals, dumb, stupid, vicious animals who kill in the name of their religion. What a wonderful religion.

I Agree With Cheney On This One!

Dick Cheney has defended the charges against the CIA for using torture. Noted contributor Ron said the iniation he received in the Navy for crossing the equator is worse than some of the torture described in the partisan CIA report released by the Dimocrats. And didja notice this report was released on the same day Jon “Americans are stupid” Gruber testified before Issa’s congressional committee? Yeah me too.

Of course McRINO is against torture having experienced it himself but compare what he went through to sleep deprivation and waterboarding. He can’t lift his arms above his shoulders. That’s real torture. Breaking bones, pulling off fingernails, branding, inserting bamboo strips under fingernails. The CIA did nothing like that. Compared to what the Mooslime barbarian savages do to their prisoners, our methods are downright humane. And yannow what?

image

These people have vowed to kill us. They want to impose their barbarian way of life on us. As someone else said, “If torturing these savages will prevent another 9/11, remember when you hook up the battery that red is positive and black is negative.”

What liberals don’t realize is that Islam declared war on western civilization back in the 7th Century. They have been at war with us ever since. They will never give up this war and the only thing they recognize is force. Remember when when the Iranian “students” took our diplomats hostage in violation of international law (which liberals and the United Nations claim they support)? Khomeini later said that he was surprised at Jimmah Carter’s tepid response. He was prepared to release the hostages but Jimmah showed weakness so he kept them for the rest of Jimmah’s term.

So yeah, torturing Islamic MUSLIM savages won’t cause me to lose a minute of sleep, especially if it will prevent another 9/11. As Cheney said, “9/11 was the real torture”. Think of those people in the upper floors of the World Trade Center having to make the decision of burning to death or jumping to their death. That’s torture. I don’t want to see that happen again.

Islamic cavemen doing what Islamic cavemen do best, killing people in the most gruesome ways imaginable.

(Reuters) – Islamic State’s self-declared police force in western Syria decapitated four men after accusing them of blasphemy, a rights group monitoring the Syrian conflict said on Saturday.

The men were beheaded in the countryside east of the city of Homs by the militant group’s “Islamic Police”, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Observatory, which monitors the conflict using sources on the ground, reported a similar killing on Tuesday, when Islamic State beheaded a man in a town square in the north of the country. […

The Observatory also reported on Saturday that Islamic State had stoned a man and a woman to death for adultery in Manbij town in northern Syria after Friday prayers.

Visiting Soldier Can’t Stay With His Wife Or Landlord Will Double Rent

There is definitely a place in hell reserved for this landlord.

Via FOX Carolina:

A soldier returning home for the holidays to see his wife and newborn baby in Central is being kicked out of his wife’s apartment after the landlord said he is overstaying the time allowed for visitors.

Sergeant William Bullock is stationed in Missouri, but his wife has been in Central. She gave birth to their daughter two weeks ago.

Bullock said the landlord at The Groves apartment complex in Central told him he had overstayed, saying visitors are not allowed to stay in the apartments past seven days, per the agreement signed by Bullock’s wife, Lily.

“I’m stationed in Missouri and we haven’t seen each other in six months. What’s the problem with me staying and visiting with my wife?” Bullock said.

The landlord, whose name is Chuck, told FOX Carolina he enforces that rule for all his tenants.

Extraordinary Access: Al Sharpton Has Visited The Obama White House 61 Times

US President Barack Obama greets Reveren

Guess being a race huckster lying fraud tax cheat pays off, if you want to be in with this President…

Via NRO:

This, the tail end of 2014, is Al Sharpton’s moment.

Despite the firebrand minister’s shrinking physical stature, his presence on the national stage has never loomed larger. From Ferguson to Cleveland to Staten Island, black men dying at the hands of police have catapulted America’s racial obsession to new heights — carrying Sharpton along with it.

He stands solemnly with Michael Brown’s family at televised press conferences. He appears alongside Eric Garner’s grieving widow on Meet the Press. He delivers nightly sermons on race from his prime-time perch at MSNBC. Though the rehabilitation is far from perfect, it’s a far cry from the days of Tawana Brawley, Freddie’s Fashion Mart, and “white interlopers.”

How to explain the strange new respect accorded to Sharpton? Start with the White House.
Considered politically toxic by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Sharpton has been enthusiastically embraced by President Obama. He has bragged about helping to pick a new attorney general and communed with the current one. In fact, a much-quoted Politico profile last summer described Sharpton as Obama’s “go-to man on race.”

ALL Dogs Will Go To Heaven

image(NEWSER) — Pope Francis continues to show he’s anything but traditional. During a recent public appearance, Francis comforted a boy whose dog had died, noting, “One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures.”

Theologians say Francis — who took his papal name from the patron saint of animals, St. Francis of Assisi — was only speaking conversationally.

But the remark is being seen by some as a reversal of conservative Catholic theology that states because they are soulless, animals can’t go to heaven,The New York Times reports.

In 1990, Pope John Paul II said animals have souls, but his successor, Pope Benedict XVI, gave a 2008 sermon that seemed to say the opposite.

Francis’ comment has now sparked a new debate on the subject, and the Humane Society says it has been flooded with e-mails. If Francis does, in fact, believe animals have souls, “then we ought to seriously consider how we treat them,” a rep says. “We have to admit that these are sentient beings, and they mean something to God.”

PETA is also running with Francis’ remark, suggesting Catholics should move toward a vegan lifestyle.

Animal souls aside, a recent Pew survey finds Francis has a 60% approval rating worldwide and 78% approval in the US, the Washington Post reports.

China may be growing fond of the pontiff, too, considering he allegedly refused a meeting with the Dalai Lama because, as the Dalai Lama reportedly said, “It might create inconveniences,” the Times reports.

Feinstein Fact-Checks Brennan On Twitter With Non-Facts

 

From the Politico:

Dianne Feinstein fact-checks John Brennan on Twitter
By Kendall Breitman | December 11, 2014

As CIA Director John Brennan took the podium on Thursday to address the recent Senate torture report, Sen. Dianne Feinstein took to Twitter to fact-check his remarks…

Proving once again that the Politico is a stranger to the concept of facts. Nothing Ms. Feinstein (or more likely, her radical leftist staffers) posted is a ‘fact,’ let alone a ‘fact check.’

They are naked partisan assertions based on her anonymous staffers’ partisan ‘report.’ But whenever the news media want to try to put over a really big whopper, they call it a fact check.

Brennan also called the report “hyperbole,” “exaggeration and misrepresentation” and said claims that no intelligence was gained from the use of these techniques “lacks any foundation at all” …

This is what the AP called ‘threading the needle.’ And what they called Brennan’s ‘finely tuned argument.’ He was about as subtle in his attack on the report as a sledge hammer.

hey Are With Their Inhuman Plans for Victim James Foley’s Beheaded Body

So ISIS wants to sell the headless body of James Foley for $1 Mill. And people still think we shouldn’t torture terrorists?

image

For ISIS, beheading American journalist James Foley wasn’t enough. They’re still trying to find ways profit from his brutal death. According to Buzzfeed News:

Middlemen with ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have turned to a grim new method of trying to secure funds in recent days. With the group having failed to strike deals to ransom the U.S. hostages in its custody — instead beheading three of them since July — its intermediaries are now trying to negotiate the sale of the body of at least one of the men it killed.

They said ISIS wants $1 million for Foley’s body, which it would deliver across the border to Turkey, and that the group was willing to provide a DNA sample to facilitate a deal.
It’s hard to determine what’s more disturbing: that ISIS has kept Foley’s body because they want to sell it, or the fact that someone would actually purchase his body in the first place.

The Future Is Here: Watch What The U.S. Navy’s First Laser Weapon Can Do To America’s Enemies

The advance that the U.S. Navy just made in weapons technology seems like something out of a science fiction novel.

For the first time in history, an advanced energy weapons system is a reality. According to Time:

The Navy’s laser weapon system—LaWS, in sea-service jargon—was fired from the USS Ponce, a one-time amphibious ship that was converted to an “afloat forward staging base” in 2012 and assigned to the 5th Fleet in Bahrain. Firing a laser from the surface of the Persian Gulf is challenging because heat, humidity, dust and salt water can reduce its power.

Navy officers say the weapon’s power is adjustable, ranging from distract to disable to destroy.

Disability: It’s Not Just for the Disabled Anymore

How is Obama able to keep the official unemployment rate relatively low, even while inflicting crippling damage on the economy that steadily drives down the labor participation rate? Here’s how:

How much is the Social Security Disability program cutting into workforce participation? That’s a question examined in a piece from Moody’s Analytics, asking whether disability benefits are driving Americans away from seeking employment.

There are 237,000 Alabamians on federal disability, more than 6 percent of the population. …

Nationwide, nearly 10 million Americans, or about 3 percent of the population, are enrolled in the Social Security disability program.

The Moody’s piece mentions that a growing percentage of prime-aged workers are reporting that they aren’t in the labor force because of disability.

But while the amount of money in benefits being paid out increases, there does not appear to be a rise in the frequency of medical conditions that would explain its growth.

What explains the growth is that under liberal rule, it is ever easier to claim disability, and ever harder to find a job.

This exceedingly morbid trend will continue until either liberalism is overthrown, or America dies of it.

A Charlottesville mother and her 17 year-old high school daughter were brutally murdered on Friday night by Gene Everett Washington.
Don’t expect this to get much national media attention.
CBS6 reported:

The elementary school teacher and her teenage daughter murdered in their Charlottesville home Friday night were not random crime victims, Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo said during a Tuesday morning news conference.

Murder suspect Gene Everett Washington, 30, and victim Mani Aldridge, 17, knew each other prior to Friday’s crime. Chief Longo would not go into detail about the relationship between Washington and the Charlottesville High School junior.

Police arrested Washington Monday evening and charged him with two counts of first-degree murder. Mani and her mother, 58-year-old Robin Aldridge, were brutally beaten to death inside their Rugby Ave. home Friday, Longo said.

Their bodies were found around midnight after crews responded to a fire at the home. When firefighters arrived, they found intense flames on the home’s lower level.

Police believe the Aldridges were murdered around 6pm Friday however the fire was not noticed until midnight. Police do not suspect Washington returned to the scene.

“My son is not a monster,” Washington told CBS 6 news crews outside her sons residence…….Your son is not only a monster he’s the definition of pure EVIL, AND HE SHOULD BURN IN HELL FOR ETERNITY!………Papa Mike

Fox News Poll: Voters Say Make White House staff testify on Benghazi

A majority of American voters wants Congress to keep investigating Benghazi — and they want to hear from White House staffers, who they suspect of a cover-up.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.

The September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya resulted in the death of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.

By a 58-38 percent margin, voters think Congress should continue digging into the administration’s handling of the debacle.

And 6 in 10 say the Obama administration is covering up on Benghazi (60 percent). That’s more than twice the number that believes the White House is being “open and transparent” (28 percent).

Most Republicans think lawmakers should keep investigating Benghazi (78 percent) and believe the administration is hiding the truth (84 percent).

Views are more mixed among Democrats.  While a 58-percent majority opposes the investigation, nearly 4 in 10 think Congress should continue looking into Benghazi (38 percent).  And while 50 percent say the White House is being open and transparent, more than a third of Democrats — 36 percent — say it is covering up what happened.

Obama Is Opening A Backdoor For Illegal Immigrants To Become Citizens “INSTANTLY”

 

Via Washington Examiner:

President Obama’s recently unveiled immigration scheme creates a new path for illegal immigrants and those who overstay their visas to become legal citizens nearly instantly, according to Utah Sen. Mike Lee.

Taking to the Senate floor Thursday to reveal the backdoor he said Obama is opening to millions more illegals beyond the parents of children here legally, the Republican said, “This is the danger of unilateral executive action.”

While the issue is complicated, Lee said that Obama’s plan would ease the requirement that those overstaying their visas must leave then try to enter again legally.

It would also provide a way for those here illegally to be waived into America without any punishment.

Lee said that the Obama plan would provide “advance parole” to illegals, putting them on the fast track to a green card and citizenship. That status has been difficult to get in the past.

In Case You Forgot This Little guy…. Case from March 2014 case still active

Hello. Don’t recognize me? That’s OK; I understand.
My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.
A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty… too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.

See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.
Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me – so why should he care?

I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.
I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller – I no longer have my life.
Isn’t this a great country?

So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, Michael Brown and Eric Garner please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

I won’t hold my breath.
I don’t have to anymore.

DELAYS PLAGUE HILLARY CLINTON’S STATE DEPT. FILES

BY STEPHEN BRAUN

ASSOCIATED PRESS

imageWASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department has failed to turn over government documents covering Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that The Associated Press and others requested under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act ahead of her presumptive presidential campaign. They include one request AP made four years ago and others pending for more than one year.

The agency already has missed deadlines it set for itself to turn over the material.

The State Department denied the AP’s requests, and rejected the AP’s subsequent appeals, to release the records sought quickly under a provision in the law reserved for journalists requesting federal records about especially newsworthy topics.

In its requests, the AP cited the likely prospect of Clinton entering the 2016 race. The former first lady is widely considered the leading Democratic contender hoping to succeed President Barack Obama. She has made scores of recent high-profile speeches and public appearances.

On Wednesday, the conservative political advocacy group Citizens United sued the State Department for failing to disclose flight records showing who accompanied Clinton on overseas trips.

Citizens United, which in 2009 mounted a legal battle that led to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning campaign finance limits, said the department unlawfully was withholding the records it sought nearly five months ago.

Global Survey Finds America One of The World’s Least Racist Country’s…

Has anyone told Obama, Holder, Sharpton, NBC-CBS-ABC-MSNBC and the entire DIMocratic party?……….Papa Mike

Dem base hardest hit.

Via Daily Caller:

With all the recent race clanging on MSNBC and other cable news networks, now’s probably a good time to remind everyone that America is among the least racist countries in the world.

I know this statement will be shocking news to regular viewers of “PoliticsNation,” but it also has the quality of being true.

From 2010 to 2014, the World Values Survey asked residents in over 50 countries who they would not want as neighbors. Just over five percent of respondents in the United States said “people of a difference race.” That’s far more tolerant a response than citizens of most European, African and Asian countries gave. As a comparison, 15 percent of Germans, 41 percent of Indians and 22 percent of Japanese said they wouldn’t want to live next to “people of a different race.” The Washington Post depicted the results in a useful chart.

The survey is probably not a perfect indicator of how pervasive racism is in a given society, but the results do correlate with what we know anecdotally. Take, for instance, the fact that America elected and then re-elected a black man for president.

HHS Paid One Org Over $280 Million To House Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Children This Year…

Illegal alien children

imageYour tax dollars hard at work!

Via Capitol City Project:

The Department of Health and Human Services dished out over $182 million to one organization in order to house unaccompanied illegal alien children over the span of four months, according to documents released on December 3. The taxpayer funds ended up covering the likes of free laptops, big screen TVs, and pregnancy tests. In 2014 alone, the group was awarded well over $280 million in federal grant money and surpasses $460 million when factoring in 2013. This is just one group in a sprawling network of those sheltering illegal alien children.

The December 3 documents, obtained by Judicial Watch, show BCFS, formerly known as Baptist Children and Family Services, was paid $182,129,786 in order to provide “basic shelter care” for 2,400 “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) during a four month span.The budget included charges of $104,215,608 for the 1,200 UAC’s at a Fort Sill, Oklahoma center and another $77,914,178 for the 1,200 UACs at the Lackland Air Force Base shelter located in San Antonio, Texas. From June 12 to October 18, these figures equate to $86,846.34 for every illegal alien child housed at Ft. Sill and $64,928 per illegal alien child from May 18 to September 18 at the Lackland Air Force Base location. On top of this, $2,648,800 was given as compensation to members of the BCFS “Incident Management Team” — or $88,293 per person.

Watchdog: IRS Paid $6 BILLION In Bogus Child Tax Credits

The IRS paid at least $6 billion in child tax credits in 2013 to people who weren’t eligible to receive them, a government investigator said Tuesday.

Payments went to families that mistakenly claimed the tax credit or claimed the wrong amount, as well as taxpayers who committed fraud, according to an audit by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.

The audit highlights problems with a tax credit that President Barack Obama has championed as a way to help low-income working families.

Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus package temporarily expanded the credit to more families that don’t make enough money to pay federal income tax. The expanded credit expires at the end of 2017.

These families receive the $1,000-per-child credit in the form of a tax refund. The report released Tuesday focused on payments to these families.

For years the IRS has said the risk is low for improper payments related to the child tax credit. The report says that assessment is incorrect.

“It is imperative that the IRS take action to identify and address all of its programs that are at high risk for improper payments,” George said in a statement.

In a statement, the IRS aid it “continues to aggressively explore new ways to detect and stop potentially fraudulent claims while maximizing the use of limited compliance resources.”
