  • Give the brave Chattanooga servicemen the Purple Heart

    Awarding the Purple Heart to the five brave American military men who were murdered by an Islamic terrorist is a no-brainer, unless you're in the politically-correct Obama Administration. These brave men were attacked on our soil by someone following the ISIS lead. His attack on our members of military was an act of war. Our government will hem and haw over something obvious and we, as patriotic Americans, are getting awful testy over nitpicky words, putting a cushion around evil Islam, and putting our military members secondary. Award the Purple Heart now!

    Obama Blasts GOP Critics of Iran Nuclear Deal President says opponents of accord are playing ‘fast and loose’ with facts By Carol E. Lee July 27, 2015 9:36 a.m. ET ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia—President Barack Obama excoriated Republican critics of the nuclear agreement with Iran—particularly the GOP presidential candidates—saying they’re playing “fast and loose” with the facts to scuttle the accord and making a mockery of the American political process. Mr. Obama has studiously avoided publicly commenting on the campaign to replace him, but on Monday he bristled over his signature foreign policy achievement becoming a centerpiece of the 2016 debate....

    Secretary of State John Kerry said a rejection of the nuclear deal with Iran by the U.S. Congress would put Israel at risk of being "more isolated and more blamed." Speaking in New York on Friday before members of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, Kerry declared there are "no alternatives" to the nuclear agreement the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran. A clear focus in Kerry's message on Friday was his past and continuing support for Israel, even recalling his 100% voting record for Israel during his time as senator. With the deal, Kerry...

    This is breathtaking in its own fanaticism—and in the ignorance that, one might have hoped, would have been tucked away after Romney’s 2012 presidential defeat at the hands of a lackluster incumbent. A survey of recent Iranian history suggests that its leaders, while starkly fundamentalist in their religious sensibility, conduct foreign policy based on a logical understanding of their national interests and an often brilliant pursuit of them within the context of geopolitical reality. They certainly never sent an army halfway around the world to overthrow the leader of a sovereign state with the intent of establishing a beachhead for...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller knew it wasn’t a good idea to ban arms from our military bases and recruiting centers, which is why in June—weeks before the Chattanooga attack—he submitted an amendment to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act which would “give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms.” Unfortunately, his amendment was blocked, by none other than Sen. John McCain. The Republican senator explained in an interview on the Lars Larson Show that McCain, who’s the Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman, “didn’t want the amendment as part of the [2016 National Defense Authorization]...

Dean Heller (R-NV) said that in June he “submitted an amendment” to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) “to give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms.” That was weeks before the heinous attack on Chattanooga, but he says the amendment went nowhere because Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) “didn’t want the amendment as part of the bill and wouldn’t accept it.” On July 21–just 5 days after the heinous attack in Chattanooga–Senator Heller re-introduced his amendment...

    AMMAN, Jordan - The Chattanooga shootings that killed four Marines and a Navy sailor was "not an act of terrorism," a lawyer for the shooter's uncle said Thursday. Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez had downloaded audio recordings of Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical American-Yemeni cleric who was a recruiter for al Qaeda, according to law enforcement officials. But relatives in Jordan believe last week's gun attacks were not motivated by ideology or religion. The rampage ended when the 24-year-old was killed in a shootout with Tennessee police.

    WASHINGTON — The White House provided no explanation Monday amid questions over why the president had not ordered flags across the nation to half-staff in the wake of a Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting that killed five servicemembers.

    Chattanooga aftermath: Why do major television networks continue to get away with mollycoddling murdering radical terrorists in the very wake of their evil carnage? Within four days of the attack that claimed the lives of four US Marines and a Navy sailors slaughtered in the Chattanooga shooting spree, ABC is portraying poor Mohammod Abdulazeez—not as a radical Islamic terrorist—but as a “disturbed, suicidal young man using drugs, preparing for bankruptcy and facing an appearance in criminal court”. While their loved ones are in tearful mourning, the mainstream media’s crying killer Abdulazeez a river and getting über maudlin with the violins....

    The jihad is here, and every American is a target. Four Marines and a Navy petty officer were shot dead in cold blood and one police officer was wounded last Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The murderer, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, was not on any watch lists or any terror suspect lists. He was born in Kuwait, which brings us back to our disastrous immigration policies.

    WASHINGTON - The man suspected of killing five members of the U.S. military in Tennessee last week was in Qatar at least once during a 2014 trip to the Middle East, according to two U.S. government sources who said reasons for the stopover were still unknown. U.S. investigators are trying to piece together Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez's travels to the region to see if he was radicalized by a militant group such as Islamic State.
