    If an executive order from the president couldn’t get the job done, then the Obama administration might have to resort to other means when it comes to making illegal aliens feel at home in America. Since there are no greater issues facing the country right now, the Obama-appointed Task Force on 21st Century Policing recommends severing ties between Homeland Security and local law enforcement authorities. “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security should terminate the use of state and local criminal justice system…to enforce civil immigration laws against civil and nonserious criminal offenders,” says the task force report. Rather than move...

    Judicial Watch announced today that it "obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified "Secret" documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State, revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked "Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman" (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance." Judicial Watch added what has been proven and obvious for years—that "Benghazi attack" was "not about a response to an anti-Muhammad video" or was it "the protests at the U.S. Embassy in...

    “A dictatorship was impossible in our Republic because power was widely diffused. Today, as we approach Democratic Socialism, all power is being centralized at the apex of the executive branch of the federal government. This concentration of power makes a dictatorship inevitable.” (Gary Allen, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” page 34) The aforementioned quote and book were written in 1971. Good Day to you, SHTF readers. This article is going to mention some of the “finer points” utilized by the executive branch (Obama) toward the totalitarian end-state he desires. The end state of slavery he erroneously (and intentionally) labels a...

The bulletin warns of plots targeting high-ranking law enforcement officials and their families with car bombs. The bulletin is based on unsubstantiated information from an informant who claimed to have obtained it from Bandidos and...

    Obama: We're definitely not 'losing' in Iraq - ISIS storming into Ramadi was just a 'setback' and it would be a mistake to send in U.S. ground troops President Barack Obama echoed the many claims of his administration officials in an interview released today and said that the fall of Ramadi is a mere 'setback.' 'No, I don’t think we’re losing,' the president told The Atlantic in the Tuesday interview. 'There’s no doubt there was a tactical setback,' he said, but 'Ramadi had been vulnerable for a very long time.' The president dug in his heels and said he would...

The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign.

    A very important movie about the Holocaust made its way to New York City for the first time this week at the end of a tortuous journey that began 70 years ago when Allied forces and newsreel cameramen stumbled into Nazi concentration camps. Called “German Concentration Camps Factual Survey,” it is as unadorned as its title, a document shot in the moment to capture forever evidence of the unimaginable. Made under the auspices of the British Ministry of Information, produced by Sidney Bernstein, the founder of Granada Television, assembled with advice from Alfred Hitchcock, the movie was meant to ram...

    On life support as of early Thursday morning, President Barack Obama’s trade agenda has found new life. In a dramatic vote critical to the future of the president’s goal of securing new trade deals with Pacific Rim and European countries, the Senate on Thursday broke a bipartisan filibuster of legislation to give the president “fast-track” authority to negotiate new trade deals. The 62-38 vote preserves the possibility that the Senate can finish the trade bill before the Memorial Day recess, which would be a major boon to Obama and Republican leaders in the House and Senate. It came after a...

Dennis walked outside to get some air, but ended up right in the grasp of the Metropolitan Police Department. Stepping outside an apartment for fresh air doesn’t draw police attention in, say, Georgetown. But Dennis doesn’t live there. Instead, he lives on Buena Vista Terrace SE, a grim stretch of low-rise apartments pushed up against the Maryland border. And on Buena Vista Terrace, just standing outside can...

Support for legalization proved mixed at a public meeting of the ACLU’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Marijuana Legalization in Oakland this week. "Street-level drug dealers who are now selling to 17- to 25-year-olds could see legalization cut their market in half," said Robert Dousa. “Many of these dealers are doing it to support their families — they need to make money,” Dousa said.

    A court case working its way through the military justice system raises a basic question: Should a member of the military be allowed to post a religious passage in her place of work? The case involves Monifa J. Sterling, a Marine veteran who was convicted in a court-martial at Camp Lejeune, N.C., of failing to go to an appointed place of duty, disrespecting a superior commissioned officer and four specifications of disobeying a lawful order. She was sentenced last year to a reduction in rank from lance corporal to private and given a bad-conduct discharge, a status that will stay...

    A longtime Clinton confidant reportedly advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton two days after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that an Al Qaeda-tied group had planned the deadly assault and used a protest as cover -- but despite this warning, Clinton's U.N. ambassador went on to publicly claim the attack was "spontaneous." The guidance from ex-Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal was contained in a memo sent Sept. 13, according to The New York Times. It is the latest documentation effectively contradicting the administration's early narrative that the attack was driven by protests over an anti-Islam Internet video -- and raising questions...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Chinese state firms are poised to be strong contenders in the race to make high-speed trains that will sprint between Los Angeles and San Francisco, part of a $68 billion project to bring the service to the United States for the first time. While "bullet train" manufacturers from Germany, Japan, South Korea, and France are expected to be among those jockeying for the estimated $1 billion train contract, China’s ability to offer low prices and hefty financing appear to make it the one to beat, say lobbyists and industry insiders. Lacking experience in the technology, California...

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the longest-running Southern Gothic soap opera in American history! It is a mix of "Days of Our Lives," "Dr. Phil," "The Sopranos," "Oprah" and "Judge Judy" all rolled into one, long, endless saga called "The Clintons — a Tale of Naked Ambition, Unquenchable Libido, Towering Greed and Their Desperation to be a Part of Every American's Life as Long as We Live."

  • Obama says the DUMBEST THING EVER to protect ‘peaceful’ Islam

    Obama has been on a mission trying to protect his ‘peaceful’ Islam since he’s been in office, but he’s ramped it up with the advent of ISIS. Today in a speech somewhere, he actually suggested Climate Change led to the creation of ISIS and Boko Haram: Obama knows the people who listen to him are uneducated idiots who will believe anything he says, no matter how stupid. And this is about as dumb as it gets.
