The obama administration is by far the biggest threat we face in this country today.
Because of the obama administration, there have been more Americans killed in Afghanistan during his tenure than in all the previous years combined.
obama personally stepped in and stopped the military trials of the 9/11 hijacking planners after the trials had already begun. Justice has still not been done.
obama has refused to charge nidal hassan with terrorism. Justice has not been done.
The obama administration has armed the Mexican drug cartels resulting in the murders of at least four Americans and countless Mexican civilians. Justice has not been done.
The obama administration facilitated the rise to power of the muslim brotherhood in Egypt and ignored the slaughters of Christians. Justice has not been done.
The obama administration conspired with Al Qaeda to overthrow Libya's government and sent arms from Libya to hamas in Gaza through the muslim brotherhood in Egypt and to Al Qaeda in Syria through Turkey.
obama left 41 Americans to die in Benghazi. Four Americans were murdered by terrorists he armed and justice has not been done.
obama has refused to denounce the muslim murders of Christians across the Middle East and Africa.
obama has handed off Iraq to Iran making our sacrifice of blood and treasure an exercise in futility.
obama has just overseen the wholesale slaughter of Western hostages including Americans in Algeria by terrorists he armed yet he remains silent. Justice will not be done.
obama has attacked our Constitution in so many ways it is hard to enumerate. He has ruled by fiat without challenge. Justice has not been done.
obama has deliberately set out to destroy this country from within and conspired with others to destroy it from without.
obama presides with gusto over the holocaust of the unborn.
He has turned the black ghettos into death camps.
He has blessed homosexuality and encouraged sodomy to be taught to our children as a civil right.
He is in the process of utterly destoying our military.
He has empowered government agencies to steal our land, our homes, our water, our food, our guns, our healthcare, our livlihoods, and our souls.
The coming four years of obama rule is the biggest threat we face today. We must understand this and fight it any way we can.
Be aware. Be wary. Understand what you are seeing and do not allow yourselves to become complacent.
The country you save may be your own.

C/w the above, a continuing ignored but palpable threat:
Not one person in the US Congress has cared or has brought up
that Obama and Holder are tied to terrorists who remain above the Law, like them:

"Army Major (Hasan) Played Role in Presidential (Obama) Transition"

AG Eric Holder's clients: Saad Al Qahtani,Mohammed Zahrani,Achraf Salim ("Sultan") Abdessalam,Abdul Rahman Abdul Abu Ghityh Sulayman
Musaab Omar Al Madhwani, Jawad Jabbar Sadkhan (Al Sahlani),Majid Khan

"Holder's Advisers Have Conflicts on Detainee Cases"

"Eric Holder's Law Firm Has a history of representing Terrorists"

The Obama administration purposefully and systematically conducted a propaganda war against Gaddhafi, a US ally in the fight against the Muslim Brotherhood, invaded Libya, and seeded Africa entire and the Magreb with arms from Libyas arsenal. Now there is war in Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Algeria.It will spread in “Obama’s Arab Spring” . Obama also has caused an act of war against Mexico and the deaths of thousands there caused by Obama’s gun running in operation “Fast and Furious.”

Obama has seeded the world with warfare, starvation and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, soon to be millions.

And Obama will soon bring death, starvation and disorder to his own people who oppose his politics, and he will begin by disarming his enemies.

This is the measure of Barrak Hussein Obama, Americas first fascist dictator.

A totally new era of dictatorship has begun in the United States.

We are at war.

I wish there was some sort of forum that could for the most part be out of touch from the FBI to discuss revolutionary tactics, strategies, ways to create negative liberal propaganda, ways to derail the progressive freight trains, ways to counter Obamacare, facial recognition, how to disapear in a crowd of two.

I frankly have practically stopped posting completely on FR because its like standing in front of an FBI building with a bull horn, the time for making protests is over.

Its a time for men and women to act.

Obama-rule.

If you doubt what you’re in for:

I am in Norway, and we have the same gun rules that the Democrats and Obamma are pushinng. They were put into place by the far left in, I think, 2009. Among other things, they mandate that the home guard not be allowed firing pins for their allocated weapons. Historically, that was a stunt pulled by the left because guardsmen living in “collectives” found live weapons “burdensome”. These policies culminated, so far, in almost a hundred dead at Utøya.

Today I was swarmed at home by a police detail who made off with all my guns, 8 handguns and some of it vintage stuff.

They had received a “message of concern” that I might not be fit to own guns at the present time. I have, of course, some idea who might be involved in such “concerns”.

There’s several points to this stuff. I have been looking to sell a lump of guns for some time because I need money for family matters, private sales in a guncontrol society is a complicated matter, my shoulder was crushed last xmas and now has a steel hinge so my competition days are pretty much over, and the gents in the police will help me sell and get a desperately needed chunk of money, so that’s a silver lining.

The informant society of Norway is not, however, and that’s where America is headed. The Norwegian moral outlook today is a homosexual marriage between two Jewhaters, Quisling and Mohammed.

We have at least one police lawyer with an islamist background, running a “think tank” (Minotenk) with a convicted terrorist (Lars Gule) on the board, so while our police is still generally sound it’s rotting slowly from the head, which is exactly the situation you find yourselves in.

I viewed the video at your link. An American sassy ass bully kid like that would be sooooo much in trouble talking down to men here. : )

Weak liberal men who would actually listen to a smart mouth bully kid like that, are few and far between.

Americans don’t have much love for smash mouth bossy liberals in most of the country and they correct their children when they come home from school with fascist/marxist propaganda and behaviors. Socialists here would have to have brutal labor camps and end freedom of speech to make americans submit into that mentality and they would probably end up dead. The socialists are having their season in the lime light. They will hurt some innocent people and then they will be put out to pasture again.

NO! I cannot! Dangers have multiplied.

Disarming Americans, Arming Terrorists
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/disarming-americans-arming-terrorists/

bho adm not only disarming Americans and arming terrorists, they are disarming AMERICA (nuclear weapons deterioration and missile shield bill stalled in the House)! Do they expect Russia, China, and Iran to play ball? No, they do not expect that.

“REBECCA HEINRICHS of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies joins Fred Grandy in a talk about how radical Global Zero is and the absurdity of the idea that “security is a state of mind.” A unilateral disarmament by the United States will only serve to give opportunities to its enemies—particularly dangerous considering the U.S. has nothing to protect against ICBM threats towards the East Coast.”

Barack Obama To Shut Down Southern Air Defense Systems
Market Daily News ^ | January 23rd, 2013 | Mack Slavo

Posted on Monday, January 28, 2013 11:17:09 AM by 11th_VA

As the U.S. government continues to expand surveillance and monitoring systems to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars within the borders of the United States, a recent announcement regarding the country’s southern air defense systems is raising eyebrows.

Our southern border is, in part, protected by the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS), which utilizes moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to identify low flying aircraft and missiles that may penetrate the border and cross into U.S. airspace.

The system is utilized by the U.S. Air Force, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection for a number of missions including detection of drug smuggling and preservation of the air sovereignty of the continental United States.

According to Exelis Systems Corporation, the company that built and jointly maintains TARS with the U.S. Air Force, the government has ordered a complete shutdown of Aerostat flight operations:

The government also indicated its intent that aerostat flight operations will cease on March 15, 2013, and that the remainder of the fiscal year will be used to deflate aerostats, disposition equipment, and prepare sites for permanent closure. We are currently reviewing all the details of the RfP and evaluating the possible impacts on the program and our workforce. We continue to communicate with the government on this matter, and we will have more information in the coming days and weeks.

An Exelis employee close to the TARS project had this to say about the closure of the sites:

“Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas.

These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders.

Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected.

It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.”

With China actively and openly deploying Russian-made low altitude strategic bombers, designing EMP weapons capable of disabling the country’s power grid infrastructure, and establishing economic zones within the United States, it’s difficult to imagine the motivation behind the move to further weaken U.S. air defenses on the southern border.

If September 11, 2001 was any indication of our air defense capabilities, and considering that any ground invasion of the United States would originate on our southern border, then wouldn’t we want as many early warning systems as possible to be actively protecting our country in these specific areas?

The U.S. government has chosen to shutdown this outward facing surveillance system, and has instead turned the surveillance inward, on the American people.

The speed with which the obama adm is implementing its "transforming America" agenda in this second term is breathtakingly horrific.

He has even been launching "anti-Constitution" trial balloons. Why bother? The fascists are ignoring it anyway. I guess they want to cover all their bases.

Pakistani fertilizer firm to expand in U.S., but balks on controlling bomb materials

"The Pakistani corporation that has refused the Pentagon’s urgent appeals to control the flow of explosive materials to bomb-makers who kill U.S. troops is expanding its fertilizer manufacturing into the United States.

The Indiana Finance Authority has approved $1.27 billion in tax-exempt bonds for Midwest Fertilizer Corp. to build a nitrogenous fertilizer manufacturing plant in Posey County. Midwest is a new startup company of the Fatima Group, a conglomerate headquartered in Lahore, Pakistan.

Indiana state records show that Midwest was registered in Indiana in September at a time when the Pentagon says Fatima continued to be uncooperative in fighting homemade bombs.

Fatima is the only Pakistani producer of CAN, which is illegal to import into in Afghanistan.

Fatima’s fertilizer components are used by terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan to build homemade bombs — the No. 1 killer of American service members in Afghanistan.

Gen. Barbero said that nearly 1,900 Americans in Afghanistan had been killed or wounded by homemade bombs in 2012 at the time of his Dec. 13 testimony. He said the only sources for CAN are two Fatima Group plants in Pakistan.

Army drill scares residents on Houston’s south side
abc local ^ | 1/28/13 | Jessica Willey

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 1:13:27 AM by Nachum

HOUSTON (KTRK) — The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.

We received a lot of phones calls, Tweets and Facebook posts from worried neighbors, wondering what was going on.

SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appeared there was a massive SWAT scene happening.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.

“When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst,” Jerrals said.

And so, she passed along her concern.

Yemen Seizes Sailboat Filled With Weapons, and U.S. Points to Iran
New York Times ^ | January 28, 2013 | THOM SHANKER and ROBERT F. WORTH

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 1:53:56 AM by Seizethecarp

The authorities in Yemen have seized a boat in their territorial waters filled with a large quantity of explosives, weapons and money, according to American officials briefed on the interdiction. The officials said Monday that there were indications that Iran was smuggling the military contraband to insurgents inside Yemen, although they declined to provide details.

The captured weapons included surface-to-air missiles used to shoot down civilian and military aircraft, C4 military-grade explosives, 122-millimeter shells, rocket-propelled grenades and bomb-making equipment, including electronic circuits, remote triggers and other hand-held explosives, the statement said.

If the weapons turn out to include the Iranian-made Misagh-2 surface-to-air missile, as cited in the reports from Yemen, it would reflect a significant increase in lethality for the insurgents.

For years, Yemen has accused Iran of supporting the Houthi rebels, who fought an intermittent guerrilla war against the Yemeni government from 2004 to 2010. Those accusations — including claims of intercepted weapons shipments — often lacked evidence and, up until about a year ago, routinely were dismissed as propaganda.

But after the uprising in Yemen in 2011, the Houthi movement expanded from its base in the northwest — now a de facto Houthi statelet — across the country. It has benefited from widespread dissatisfaction with both Yemen’s government and the local equivalent of the Muslim Brotherhood, known as Islah.

By last spring, American military and intelligence officials described what they viewed as a widening effort to extend Iranian influence across the greater Middle East. Iranian smugglers backed by the Quds Force, an elite international operations unit within Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, had begun shipping AK-47s, rocket-propelled grenades and other arms to replace older weapons used by the rebels, American officials said last year.

U.S. Weighs Base for Spy Drones in North Africa
New York Times ^ | January 28, 2013 | ERIC SCHMITT

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 12:08:37 AM by Seizethecarp

The United States military is preparing to establish a drone base in northwest Africa so that it can increase surveillance missions on the local affiliate of Al Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups that American and other Western officials say pose a growing menace to the region.

For now, officials say they envision flying only unarmed surveillance drones from the base, though they have not ruled out conducting missile strikes at some point if the threat worsens.

If the base is approved, the most likely location for it would be in Niger, a largely desert nation on the eastern border of Mali. The American military’s Africa Command, or Africom, is also discussing options for the base with other countries in the region, including Burkina Faso, officials said.

The immediate impetus for a drone base in the region is to provide surveillance assistance to the French-led operation in Mali. “This is directly related to the Mali mission, but it could also give Africom a more enduring presence for I.S.R.,” one American military official said Sunday, referring to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The State Department has been extraordinarily wary of allowing drones to operate in the region, fearful of criticism that the United States is trying to militarize parts of Africa as it steps up its campaign to hunt down Qaeda-linked extremists in Somalia, as well as those responsible for the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

U.S. Weighs Base for Spy Drones in North Africa
New York Times ^ | January 28, 2013 | ERIC SCHMITT

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 12:08:37 AM by Seizethecarp

The United States military is preparing to establish a drone base in northwest Africa so that it can increase surveillance missions on the local affiliate of Al Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups that American and other Western officials say pose a growing menace to the region.

For now, officials say they envision flying only unarmed surveillance drones from the base, though they have not ruled out conducting missile strikes at some point if the threat worsens.

If the base is approved, the most likely location for it would be in Niger, a largely desert nation on the eastern border of Mali. The American military’s Africa Command, or Africom, is also discussing options for the base with other countries in the region, including Burkina Faso, officials said.

The immediate impetus for a drone base in the region is to provide surveillance assistance to the French-led operation in Mali. “This is directly related to the Mali mission, but it could also give Africom a more enduring presence for I.S.R.,” one American military official said Sunday, referring to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

Brennan has helped Hussein remove the connection between Islamism and the war on terror. As DCI he will continue to arm the Muslim Brotherhood (see Benghazi) and replace secular regimes with Islamist ones (Arab Spring).

Kerry at State will foster the interconnectedness of Iran, Venezuela, North Korea. The IRGC with Chavez' Bolivariana forces in Bolivia training as the southern surveillance is disarmed.

Hagel hugs Ahmadinejad and smears Netanyahu; as Israel feels the ring tightening, and Fordow reportedly attacked.

Homeland Shock Troops preposition ammo containers and armored Humvees.

Hussein seeks to disarm the populace feared by Yamamoto.

We live in interesting times--until we vote out the Islamo-Communist crack-smoking closet queen.

Iranian Book Celebrating Suicide Bombers Found in Arizona Desert
Fox ^ | Jan. 27, 2013 | William La Jeunesse

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 10:51:44 AM by AuntB

EXCLUSIVE: A book celebrating suicide bombers has been found in the Arizona desert just north of the U.S.- Mexican border, authorities tell Fox News.

The book, “In Memory of Our Martyrs,” was spotted Tuesday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent out of the Casa Grande substation who was patrolling a route known for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs.

Published in Iran, it consists of short biographies of Islamic suicide bombers and other Islamic militants who died carrying out attacks.

According to internal U.S. Customs and Border Protection documents, “The book also includes letters from suicide attackers to their families, as well as some of their last wills and testaments.” Each biographical page contains “the terrorist’s name, date of death, and how they died.”

Agents also say that the book appears to have been exposed to weather in the desert “for at least several days or weeks.”

Authorities told Fox News that there were no people in the area at the time the book was found, and no arrests have been made in connection with it.

“At this time, DHS does not have any credible information on terrorist groups operating along the Southwest border,” a Department of Homeland Security official said in a statement.

Hughes Drops Jews
Free Beacon ^ | 1/29/13 | staff

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 11:40:29 AM by Nachum

The New Republic has quietly dropped at least five prominent Jewish writers from its masthead in a move that may signal the publication’s continued drift away from a staunchly pro-Israel standpoint.

The magazine has launched an aggressive new editorial direction under the ownership of wealthy socialite Chris Hughes, who is best known for sharing a room with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard University.

The names of several prominent Jewish writers from both the left and right of the political spectrum were dropped from TNR’s masthead in the latest issue.

They include: Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake, longtime TNR columnist James Kirchick, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, and onetime senior editor Lawrence Kaplan. Complicating the picture, former TNR editor Peter Beinart was also dropped from the masthead. Beinart is the publisher of Open Zion, an anti-Zionist Daily Beast blog sponsored by the New America Foundation.

Each of these writers had been well-respected longtime contributors to the magazine and frequently wrote about Israel and the Middle East.

The World Government is neo-feudalist/fascist in nature, but not nearly powerful enough to police the population of the entire globe, hence the big push to a) kill babies b) disarm the U.S. and subject us to genocide/FEMA camps, c) promote and use islam as a means of controlling the behavior of the serfs at the individual and village level, as islam and fascism are kissing cousins.
