Could the Zika Virus Open the Door to FORCED Abortions?

thOriginally posted at CLASH Daily

In one-child-is-the-limit communist China, population quotas on family size make forced abortion an accepted norm. In some provinces, if local family planning officials find out a woman is pregnant with a second child, even if the woman is late term, oftentimes, the baby is forcibly aborted.

In secular states like China, aborting millions of human beings, on behalf of the communal good, supersedes the right to life. In simpler terms, the Communist Party of China is authorized to make the decision that in the Chinese Republic, except in rare cases, a family larger than three is illegal.

Speaking of communist countries, in 1998, Brazil’s constitution stipulated that health care was a “fundamental right.” Since elected in 2011, lifelong socialist, President Dilma Rousseff has expanded state control over everything including the “fundamental right” to universal health care.

Now, the mosquito-borne Zika virus is epidemic in Brazil. Thus far, 4,000 infants with microcephaly have born to infected mothers. Furthermore, there is concern that the virus will spread to the rest of Latin America — then onto the Americas.

According to Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), and renowned supporter of thwarting poverty via eugenic abortion, there’s no time to waste because Zika “is [already] spreading explosively” throughout the Americas.

Besides being deeply concerned about population sustainability, Dr. Chan is also very alarmed that the mosquito-borne virus corresponds to Brazil’s “steep increase in the birth of babies with abnormally small heads and in cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome.”

Add to that, the CDC saying that the virus can be transmitted during sex, or from a “pregnant mother to her baby during pregnancy or around the time of birth.” Now we have hysteria surrounding sexually transmitted viruses, dangerous pregnancies, disastrous childbirths, and the large-scale potential for deformed fetuses to be born in impoverished nations.

That’s why, right now, in pro-life Brazil, mosquito-hunting health officials have been given dispensation to invade private property, and women of childbearing age are being strongly advised to delay pregnancy.

Delay pregnancy? What about all the exposed women who are currently pregnant in a largely Christian country where abortion is illegal?

In Brazil, the plight of multiple pregnancies, rape borne of patriarchal oppression, and the need for women to prostitute themselves for food are the reasons some of those hoping to improve the human species by way of surgical feticide feel that birth control and abortion should be more readily available to the poor.

Abortion activists in nations where abortion is either banned or discouraged and where only 52% of the women have access to birth control, maintain that denying access to contraceptives and safe abortion is immoral.

Lest we forget, in certain circles, life loses value if a child is merely born into poverty. Imagine how devalued the life of a lowly person with microcephaly would be by those who look for any excuse to abort children? Yet thus far, Zika virus or no Zika virus, those types of arguments haven’t succeeded in convincing some Latin American countries to legalize abortion.

Meanwhile, as Zika continues to spread, pressure from the world community could find a way to circumvent those barriers.

For starters, although Brazil’s President Rousseff claims to be pro-life, her party, the Worker’s Party, supports legalizing abortion. Add to that, Christian doctrine and its romantic attachment to life’s being blamed for the Zika plague being unstoppable, and you have a potential progressive recipe for success.

Demonize Christianity and lionize abortion.

Then, if Brazilian women exposed to Zika refuse to terminate, for the well-being of other nations the global community could step in and argue that Christian ideology is putting citizens of the planet at risk.

If that happens, although purely guesswork, there’s a good chance Margaret Chan could see the day where, in response to a genetically engineered virus, population control will be furthered by intergovernmental organization’s like the U.N. mandating involuntary abortions.

In other words, under the auspices of international security, the current Zika crisis could very well be the vehicle that necessitates babies be killed in the womb in countries where the virus is present and abortion illegal.

Chinese communists forcibly abort babies. Brazil is not as far along the trajectory just yet. For now, in the hunt for mosquitoes, the Rousseff administration is only up maintaining the common good by kicking in doors.

The problem is that, if the truth were to be told, both the hunting and aborting are done under the guise of régimes attempting to rescue the unwashed masses the international higher ups view as a strain on both the environment and the worldwide system.

With that in mind, what more perfect opportunity for communist Brazil to please Rousseff’s abortion-promoting Worker’s Party then taking a page out of China’s book, on behalf of women and children, and allowing the government to foil the ravages of Zika via abortion?

Thanks to mosquitoes, there is now a window of opportunity to rationalize what 2,000 years of church doctrine have prevented in backward Catholic countries like Brazil. First, blame Christians for brain-damaged babies and then use the Zika predicament as a channel to introduce abortion and sterilization into a culture that largely rejects them both as an option.

Put simply, the world is at a juncture, where, in response to a crisis, population regulators may actually be one step closer to implementing the Chinese habit of having government officials decide who gets to live and who must die.

Obama, in radical mosque, calls for other religions to be tolerant

Obama-Mosque-Visit_HoroOriginally posted at American Thinker

As the body count at the hand of Islamic extremists continues to rise in America, shouldn’t the president be trying to come up with a way to defend Judeo-Christian types, who cling to guns and the Bible, from Islamic jihadi types who cling to machetes and the Quran?

Guess not, because for his first visit to a U.S. mosque, Obama chose a congregation where a Sudanese native and former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Adam el-Sheikh, was chief imam for almost twenty years.

Why would a U.S. president even give credence to a congregation once led by a man who also lent a hand in founding the Muslim American Society, a Muslim Brotherhood-established organization interested in advancing sharia law?

Does Obama not care that in his spare time, the current executive director of the Fiqh Council of North America, an association of Islamic legal scholars, also helped found the notorious Dar Al-Hijrah mosque, led by the late al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki?  Or that in 2004, while still serving as imam of the Islamic Society of Baltimore, el-Sheikh discussed Palestinian suicide bombers with the Washington Post?

If certain Muslims are to be cornered where they cannot defend themselves, except through these kinds of means, and their local religious leaders issued fatwas to permit that, then it becomes acceptable as an exceptional rule, but should not be taken as a principle.

Even the alleged terrorist-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) commended Obama’s decision to visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore, saying:

For a number of years, we’ve been encouraging the president to go to an American mosque.  With the tremendous rise in anti-Muslim sentiment in our country, we believe that it will send a message of inclusion and mutual respect.

“Inclusion and mutual respect”?

Maybe CAIR should tell that to the two homosexual men murdered by devout Muslim-American/convicted sex offender Ali Muhammad Brown, who, after rinsing the blood off his hands, went on to avenge Muslim deaths overseas by also executing 19-year-old college student Brendan Tevlin at a traffic light.

Prior to the president showing up in Baltimore, White House spokesperson Josh “Not So” Earnest had this to say:

I think the president is quite interested in making sure that we’re affirming the important role that Muslims play in our diverse American society and certainly affirming their right to worship God in a way that’s consistent with their heritage.

Question: Who exactly is not upholding “the important role that Muslims play in our diverse American society”?  And in the 3,186 mosques located in cities all across America, which people are having their “right to worship God in a way that’s consistent with their heritage” thwarted?

Furthermore, rather than worrying about the 3 million Muslims steadily progressing toward becoming the second largest religion in America, maybe Josh should be making sure that, despite Obama, the Little Sisters of the Poor retain their “right to worship God in a way that’s consistent with their heritage.”

Meanwhile, the president descended on the Islamic Society of Baltimore, which is sort of like preaching about being less discriminatory toward Christians from the pulpit of the hateful Westboro Baptist Church.

In Baltimore, Obama mentioned bullied Muslim children and vandalized mosques and lauded Ibtihaj Muhammad, a 2016 female Olympian who plays with swords while dressed in a hijab.  Then he pointed out that “we have to understand: an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths.”

One small problem!  This is the guy who consistently assaults certain faiths.

In 2009, prior to a speaking engagement at Georgetown University’s Gaston Hall, Obama requested the crucifixes be covered up.  That same year, in order to have a “non-religious” Christmas, Obama suggested that the East Room Nativity be relocated.  Likewise, the president has blamed Christianity for lives lost during the Crusades and regularly ridicules the Christian faith with snide remarks.

As for God’s chosen people, Obama insulted Jews at a White House Hanukah celebration; publicly dissed Bibi Netanyahu; and, worse yet, minimized the threat posed by providing a genocidal anti-Semitic revolutionary theocratic state a pathway to a nuclear bomb.

Not to mention the president’s failure to acknowledge the worldwide genocide being waged by Muslims against Christians, or ignoring the fact that in America, Jews are ten times more likely than Muslims to be targeted for a hate crime.

Advocating for Islam seems to be Barack “that’s not who we are'” Obama’s most ardent public relations effort.  In his recent State of the Union address, anyone perceived to be indulging in what he perceives as anti-Muslim bigotry was publicly rebuked when he said:

When politicians insult Muslims, whether abroad or our fellow citizens, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid called names, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it like it is. It’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world.

How about when Muslim extremists living in the U.S. shoot and kill 14 people at a Christmas party; behead a co-worker at a food distribution plant; or, “on a mission from Allah,” stab a store clerk to death?  Does that “make us safer”?

Besides, how is America elevated in the eyes of the world if our president remains silent after Islamic extremists behead two Coptic Christians in New Jersey, or slit the throats of three Jewish men in Massachusetts?

Since Barack Obama ascended from the mean streets of Chicago to the Oval Office in 2009, there have been approximately 64 people murdered by Muslim extremists on U.S. soil, and that’s not counting the number of American deaths at the hands of Muslims overseas.

And yet, in another attempt to address what Barack Obama calls a “hugely distorted impression” of Islam, the one suffering from what perceives in others hoped to remedy the problem by commiserating with the guilty at a radical mosque in Baltimore.

Susan Sarandon’s minimum wage example

AP_Susan_Sarandon_Sanders_12x5_1600Originally posted at American Thinker

Sixty-nine-year-old part-time actress, full-time liberal activist, and all around rich Hollywood bigmouth (she’s worth $50 million) Susan Sarandon nearly broke out crying as she introduced a man who demonizes affluent people like herself.

In northern Iowa, on the campaign trail with presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Susan told a town hall crowd of about 1,000 that she was “feeling the Bern” because, unlike Hillary Clinton, who was for the Iraq war before she was against it, and against gay rights before she was for them, Sanders has never vacillated on either topic.

Dressed in a socialist uniform, Susan wore a newsboy hat, boots, and a lumber jacket.  After having manned the phones with Bernie’s doppelgänger, actor/comedian Larry David, at the “Night of Too Many Stars,” Susan prepared for the part to work a Bernie phone bank with scruffy millennials and old hippies, both of whom are eager to “share her wealth.”

Maybe Susan Sarandon doesn’t realize that, despite her proletarian getup, she’s among the “few” in whose hands, Bernie keeps saying, “all of the wealth rests.”

A few years ago, while talking to Oprah about her Catholic upbringing, the parochial schoolgirl said this: “I just didn’t understand why they would put babies in limbo just because they weren’t baptized… Or why they would say every other religion was bad.”

Wait!  Susan Sarandon is worried about unbaptized babies?

Sorry, but one can’t help but wonder where fiercely pro-choice Susan Sarandon believes the aborted babies she marched for the right to kill end up after being scraped out of the womb into a biohazard bag.

Either way, whatever it is Susan believes, the Louise half of Thelma and Louise has decided to exercise her right to choose by ditching girl power.  Why?  Because according to Sarandon, “gender is not what’s important.  Issues are what’s important.”

Criticizing the contender who should be indicted but probably won’t be, Susan said she prefers Sanders because she wants “a candidate who has the courage to stand to do the right thing when it is not popular.”

Not that Bernie does the right thing, either, but on that point, Susan Sarandon is somewhat correct.  Every chance she gets, Hillary escapes doing the right thing.

Speaking of Hillary Clinton, when not wearing fake cankles and accepting a huge salary for doing absolutely nothing, in addition to pacifism and concern for homosexuals, the actress wants someone in office who will solve income inequality.

Clearly, Susan is put off by Hillary’s unwillingness to take on the fight for a $15 minimum wage, saying, “That is not pragmatic; that’s just cynicism.  That’s giving up before you’ve even tried.”

Simply put, for Susan Sarandon, this time around, an old Jewish socialist with egg salad in the corner of his mouth is a better candidate for president than a Methodist grandmother with blood on her hands.

So how about Susan demonstrate her pragmatic lack of cynicism by donating 90% of her $50-million bankroll to Bernie Sanders?  Then, to drive home her staunch support of the Vermont socialist the Hollywood actress could shame Hillary Clinton by requesting a $15-per-hour salary to star in her next movie.

CDC: Blame the Zika Virus on vacation, not invasion

In an effort to cut down on burritos contaminated with fecal matter, here in America, Chipotle Grill is working hard to teach undocumented workers, guilty of third-world bathroom habits, how to wash up before handling the refried beans.

Lesson #1: Failing to remove those hygienic-looking rubber gloves before visiting the restroom, and then handling the avocadoes and cilantro without putting on a new pair, does not make for a healthy crispy corn taco.

In any case, farther south, teams in Brazil are going door to door to educate residents about how to clean up standing water.  The reason?  Although standing water festering in a deflated tire can double as the watering station for feral dogs, it is also a breeding ground for, in this case, mosquitoes infected with the Zika virus.

Right now, in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean, Zika is considered pandemic.

Normally, the Zika virus causes only minor symptoms, but Brazilian health officials are concerned because, in the last three months, more than 3,500 children have been born with microcephaly, a typically rare condition that causes incomplete brain development and an unusually small head.  Babies born with microcephaly usually don’t survive more than one or two days.

Officials believe that the recent uptick in this ordinarily rare condition may be caused by the tremendous increase in Zika-infected mosquitoes.

In response, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman Tom Skinner is warning Americans that at least “a dozen or so” confirmed cases of Zika virus have been diagnosed in residents who traveled to countries where the mosquito-borne virus is currently spreading.

Here at home, Americans are being infected with things like scabies, Chikungunya virus, Chagas disease, chicken pox, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections.  These illnesses are part of an ever growing hodgepodge of imported diseases once foreign to North America.

Now that Zika virus has been added to that list, predictably illegal immigrant-friendly health officials/amnesty allies are making an effort to reassure the American public not to be nervous about yet another foreign virus.  Why?  Because Zika is dangerous only to unborn babies who contract the virus in utero.

Pregnant or not, what the CDC statement alludes to is that rather than the source being mosquitos currently residing in the U.S. mainland, or crossing the U.S. border in the backpack of an already infected illegal immigrant, the domestic cases cropping up are being blamed on travelers who came home with the virus after falling victim to foreign mosquitos.

Travelers?  Coming home?

Blaming American travelers for illnesses endemic to the countries illegal immigrants migrate from is similar to the liberal mantra that Islamic terrorism is in no way tied to Islam.

In other words, if one were to be dumb enough to take the CDC seriously, Americans whose immune systems are presently under siege would have to believe that the Zika virus is not the result of hosts who have illegally crossed the Mexican border from countries where the virus is spreading.

If what the CDC is selling is true, then it would be quite a coincidence that four out of five of the states where the virus has been confirmed (Florida, Texas, New Jersey, and Illinois) also have the largest unauthorized immigrant populations.

It would also mean that the baby recently born in an Oahu hospital who was infected with the Zika virus couldn’t have possibly been born with microcephaly, because his mother traveled from Brazil to have her baby in Hawaii.

And just because a woman with the disease happened to “visit” Bergen County after Thanksgiving, was diagnosed with Zika at Christmas, recovered, and has since returned to Colombia, that doesn’t mean that the overabundance of illegal immigrants wandering around New Jersey who may have been bitten by a hungry mosquito should be suspect.

That’s why, if there is a similar increase in microcephaly in newborn babies born in the U.S., Americans shouldn’t conduct themselves like the xenophobic fearmongers who blamed the throngs of “unaccompanied minors” last year for American children dying of Latin America-imported Enterovirus D-68.

Instead, Americans should believe what the government says and place the blame on vacation, not invasion.

And with that in mind, let’s swat away those pesky mosquitoes flying around Chipotle Grill and dig into a burrito bowl prepared by a feverish, albeit hardworking, non-English-speaking undocumented food handler suffering from a rash and pinkeye.

Was El Chapo among the beneficiaries of Obama’s Fast & Furious?

mg_chapo_guns_compOriginally posted at American Thinker

Earlier this month, after eluding police since last summer, in Los Mochis, Mexico, drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was finally apprehended.  During a raid of the hideout where the world’s most notorious drug lord hid for six months, authorities found a .50 caliber high-powered rifle with a serial number that traced back to none other than Barack Obama, the U.S. Justice Department, and an ATF overseen by former attorney general Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation.

Sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, but the guy responsible for El Chapo being in possession of such a dangerous weapon is the same person currently demonizing the NRA and looking for ways to frustrate the Second Amendment right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms.

Dubbed “Fast and Furious,” the failed sting operation Obama kept going, which started as “Operation Wide Receiver” in 2006 and was abandoned by Bush, involved federal agents allowing licensed firearms dealers in Phoenix-area shops to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping that after they were sold, authorities could track the arms to Mexican drug cartel leaders like El Chapo and arrest them.

Instead, the ATF lost track of most of what was sold.

The irony is that under the guise of wanting to track guns to Mexico, America’s anti-gun evangelist put 2,000 weapons in the hands of criminal drug cartels.  In turn, rather than the president’s original goal being accomplished, violent chaos ensued when munitions were made available to some very bad people.

In 2010, after Obama’s guns hit the streets of Mexico, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with a “Fast and Furious” weapon.  The following year, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata also fell victim.

Five years later, Nadir Hamid Soofi, one of two armed terrorists, the other being Elton Simpson, showed up at a Garland, Texas Mohammed cartoon contest to avenge Allah’s honor with a  “Fast and Furious” gun.  Thankfully, an armed traffic cop killed the two ISIS sympathizers, both of whom arrived at the event wearing body armor, before they could kill any infidels.

Judging from the events in Garland, Texas, and the fact that thousands of intruders have successfully crossed the border illegally, surely more than a single “Fast and Furious” gun has been smuggled from Mexico back into the U.S.

And while purely conjecture, one can’t help but wonder whether the “stolen federal agent’s gun” Juan Francisco López-Sánchez allegedly used to kill Kate Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco might also have a serial number the president would rather keep secret.

Let’s face it: the chance that a 5x-deported illegal felon could happen upon a federal agent’s stolen .40 caliber handgun, under a bench, wrapped in a T-shirt, is a whole lot less credible than an illegal border-jumper managing to procure a “Fast and Furious” special on one of his round trips.

But that’s not all.  Thanks to “Fast and Furious” and a president convinced that law and order are somehow accomplished by treating villains as more trustworthy than the law-abiding, the Mexican people have also suffered greatly.

For example, in 2010, 14 teenagers near Ciudad Juárez were murdered at a party, shot by La Línea assassins, who came armed to the festivities with Obama-provided guns.  There’s also Mexican lawyer Mario González Rodríguez.  In 2011, before being murdered with a gun walked over the border and dumped in a shallow grave, Rodríguez was tortured for weeks by members of El Chapo’s Sinaloa cartel.

Beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez was also a victim.  Ms. Gamez was used as a human shield during a shootout between cops and drug-runners.  The gun found lying next to her corpse belonged to the latter group and was gifted compliments of Eric Holder and Barack Obama, both of whom, to this day, accept zero responsibility for all the bloodshed.

Now it’s 2016, and Americans find out that after five of El Chapo’s men were killed in a raid where Guzmán was finally captured, serial numbers on high-powered weapons with Barack Obama’s fingerprints all over them were found inside the hideout.

So it appears as if the president on a mission to educate the illiterate on gun safety also provided the most notorious and deadly drug lord on the planet with a rifle capable of stopping a car or taking out a helicopter.

Worse than that, when not working hard to restrict the sale of firearms, Obama, the one who lost track of 1,400, or 70%, of the 2,000 guns he purposely allowed to be walked across the border into Mexico, is reassuring Americans that he can properly vet the 250,000 ISIS-infiltrated refugees he plans on walking into this country.

HEY, LIBERALS: Right to Healthcare Doesn’t Mean Right to Life

Screen-Shot-2016-01-20-at-8.54.16-PM-500x280Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Recently, an elderly relative had a routine procedure to screen for colon cancer. This particular relative is an active, healthy, vital 82-year-old that still works. Unfortunately, there is a family history of colon cancer, which, for prevention, requires bi-annual screening.

Two-years-ago a large pre-cancerous polyp was found and removed. Now, two years later, another pre-cancerous polyp found, which was thankfully also removed. Without the bi-annual screening, there is a good chance cancer would have developed.

This time, after the anesthesia wore off, the doctor was quick to inform her that, based on age, and despite a precarious looking growth being removed, this colonoscopy was her last. The procedure would no longer be covered nor would it be recommended.

Does this now mean that in America age now disqualifies some people from being eligible to locate pre-cancerous growths before they have a chance to turn into full-blown cancer?

The doctors reasoned that older people don’t handle chemotherapy very well. Therefore, even if malignancy were found, nothing would be done about it anyway – so why even bother to look for it?

In other words, for lack of any other fatal disease, why not embolden colon cancer cells to run wild in the lower intestines of old geezers?

The conversation between my family member and the doctor brought to mind the 2010 town hall meeting where a woman named Jane Sturm asked President Obama if he had been in charge five years prior would he have allowed her 105-year-old mother, who received a pacemaker when she was 100-years-old, to receive similar care based on zest for life?

Or would he have cut off care based on age?

Imagine, instead of healthcare decisions being a personal choice, Americans are asking a pro-choice president whether he would choose to allow an old woman who wants to live to receive treatment?

Obama, who had a virtual colonoscopy he’d deny to a WWII veteran, had an “end of life” answer for Jane Sturm. In order to cut down on waste and expense, Obama would have denied surgery, and instead of a pacemaker, would have granted “Granny Sturm a pain pill”.

Six years after that town hall meeting and my elderly relative is being told that at a certain age individuals will not only be denied the right to have cancer treatment, they’ll also be denied screening for cancer prevention.

With that in mind, as a nation, Americans are at a serious juncture.

What we have here are liberals who claim to believe in the right to healthcare proving once again that they don’t believe in the right to life.

Maybe someone should tell those meting out cancer screening approvals that being dead is unhealthy.

As for the living; our problem is that the right-to-healthcare party is deciding who has the right to healthcare, which ultimately puts those that argue there is no right to life in the position of determining who lives and who dies.

OH GOD, NO: Is Obama Going To Be A Third Term President?

bho-numbers-500x280Originally posted at CLASH Daily

America is already well aware that for Hillary Clinton, who many think is “the smartest woman in the world,” it’s difficult to keep track of minor details like a philandering husband and confidential emails.

Much like Hillary, Barack Obama, the “smartest person in the room,” is also super-intelligent, which is why he may struggle with things like simple math.

Take for instance, back in 2008 when Obama informed Americans that there were seven extra states in the union, all of which he believed he had visited. He even believed he had one left to go. This may be because Obama really does possess the power to “slow the rise of the oceans” and “heal the planet,” so counting states may be too trivial an endeavor.

Either way, Obama’s latest number fumble came a couple of days after exhibiting a very shaky grasp of economics at the State of the Union address. This time, the president, who has been busy “fundamentally transforming” our “fundamentally flawed” Constitution for the last 8-years, added 10-years to America’s age.

Rather than July 4th, 1776, according to Obama, the birth of America occurred in 1766.

In addition to revising our nation’s birthday, while appearing at the University of Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska the president also rewrote a few other things when he said: “Just as all this talk about how the American economy is terrible is just not true, it’s also not true when you hear folks talking about how America’s so weak.”

Obama went on to elevate himself by ridiculing Republicans for being less than enthusiastic about his many other accomplishments such as his having made America, “far and away the most powerful nation on the planet.”

Meanwhile, on a more serious note, as Obama was busy taking credit for America being the “most powerful nation on the planet,” 10 American sailors were being humiliated by Iran on the deck of an apprehended naval ship.

Nonetheless, the president proceeded to rebuke Republicans and educate detractors about America’s strength, explaining we are who we are, “because the United States of America, for two hundred, err – 50 – years, has been working to make us the strongest.”

Huh?

Wait! In fairness, during America’s bicentennial celebration, which took place in 1976, Barack Obama was only 15-years-old, going by the name Barry Soetoro, and was still living in Indonesia. That may be why Obama believes our nation, which is approaching its 240th birthday, is really 250-years of age. Or maybe little Barry tends to use some kind of Indonesian form of common core math.

Another possibility could be that the former Constitutional law professor is cognizant of something our Founding Fathers didn’t know, either that, or he and his Choom Gang really did tour those 9 states in his Choom Wagon during the decade no one else knew existed.

And while all this misperception could be benign, if Obama continues to fumble around with numbers, there is a dilemma America could encounter in the months ahead.

The red flag went up when an acolyte in the adoring University of Omaha crowd shouted out to Obama: “Four more years!”

The president responded to the suggestion: “I can’t do that because of the Constitution” (which he’s been defying and demeaning for two terms). Then Obama followed up with: “And I can’t do that because Michelle would kill me!”

Here’s the problem: In 2009, deposed president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya sought to rewrite the Honduran constitution’s term limit provision so he could stay in office, something the Honduran constitution prohibited. At the time, newly-elected Barack Obama, who, as we can see, has the propensity to add additional numbers to everything, called for “democratic order” to be restored by supporting Zelaya’s defiance to the Honduran constitution.

Now Barack Obama, who has already proven he can’t count, is reassuring America that after eight years he plans to leave? Don’t count on it.

Obama’s ‘Empty Chair’

5067315_GOriginally posted at American Thinker

At the 2012 Republican Convention, Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood addressed Barack Obama by speaking to an empty chair. The left was peeved, and the Obama campaign was greatly offended.

Four years later, for the 2016 State of the Union address, Obama, the Teleprompter Thespian, plans to emulate Eastwood’s stunt.  The difference is that instead of the sort of exploitation of the living the president typically indulges in, this time, as a prop, Obama will exploit the dead by leaving an empty chair in the First Lady’s skybox to represent those killed by gun violence.

Based on what he had to say to 20,000 participants during a recent Organizing for Action conference call, the empty chair is necessary because the president feels, although deceased, victims of gun violence need to be “seen and understood.”

Americans already know that, as part of his 8-year repertoire, this president never hesitates to employ manipulation to further policy initiatives. That’s why, in his last State of the Union address, Obama will stress that if one loses a life because of a gun it “means something to this country.”

So, although the vacant seat next to FLOTUS could be a safe spot to place one of her $5,000 designer handbags — it’s not.  Instead, the empty chair will “tell [victim’s] stories and honor their memory… [and] remind every single one of our representatives that it’s their responsibility to do something.”

Speaking of representatives, during this joint session, Obama probably won’t be taking any opportunities to thank the armed security for protecting and preserving the lives of every politician occupying a filled seat in the House chamber.

And while Obama’s fake show will undoubtedly be about as heartrending as his recent display of crocodile tears, one thing’s for certain, the people the president won’t refer to in his memorial are those who have died as a result of progressive ideals and goals being advanced.

Take, for instance, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry — it’s unlikely that Obama will venerate Brian’s death at the State of the Union. Brian was shot and killed in 2010 with a gun provided to Mexican drug cartels by the Obama administration’s failed Fast and Furious ATF gun-walking effort.

Is it important to Barack Obama that the death of Brian Terry be “seen and understood?”  According to the president, does Brian’s premature death “mean something to this country?”

Barack Obama will be clear about how he feels about empty chairs, but where’s his memorial to the empty boots that belonged to Navy SEAL “American Sniper” Chris Kyle and Chris’s friend Chad Littlefield, both of whom were shot in cold blood by a former Marine at a shooting range?

Despite Chris Kyle’s service to this nation, Obama never acknowledged his death, nor did he find the time to put his golf clubs down long enough to attend Kyle’s funeral.

So does the death of military heroes like Chris Kyle, SEAL Team 6, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who died in Benghazi, and every soldier whose blood has been poured out in vain, thanks to Obama’s failed policies, ‘mean something’ to this Commander-in-Chief or not?

How about Obama including in his memorial empty chair show every victim of an illegal alien who currently is not sitting in a chair, but because of open borders and lax immigration policy, lies in a grave?

Why not mention victims like Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old woman who, while strolling on Pier 14 in San Francisco with her father Jim, was shot in the back with a stolen .40 caliber handgun, by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal felon who had been deported five times and was still wandering around loose in a sanctuary city?

Then again, based on his immigration stance, and his constant excuse-making for radical Islam, during the SOTU, it might be in the president’s best interest to avoid mentioning the violent extremists skulking around in the U.S. killing cops in the name of Allah, mowing down unarmed military, and blowing away defenseless citizens.

Moreover, in advance, it might be best for Obama not to concede to the empty chairs that will be needed to accommodate the deaths resulting from his dogged effort to impose an influx of ISIS-infiltrated refugees upon the Americans people.

In the meantime, when honoring and lamenting the losses caused by guns in Charleston, Sandy Hook, Oak Creek, Tucson, and Aurora, to avoid looking like a complete fraud, Obama best disremember the gun violence perpetrated on the victims of Nidal Hasan in the Fort Hood massacre, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, and the fatalities visited upon the 14 people in San Bernardino by the K-1 Visa, and “Jihadi Bride,” Tashfeen Malik.

And amid the man’s constant speechifying, why hasn’t Barack Obama ever pointed to all the empty cribs?

Because this president doesn’t want the 4,000 victims a day killed in abortion clinics, with his approval, to be “seen and understood.” Nor does Planned Parenthood’s biggest defender want any of us to understand the tremendous impact the absence of 60 million human beings “means… to this country.”

That’s why, when a tearful Obama dramatically points to the empty chair in the Special People Sky Box at the State of the Union address, it’s important for Americans to remember that the uninhabited seat represents a small, select minority consisting of dead Americans whose demise has value only because their death advances the president’s agenda.

Either way, a stadium full of empty chairs is not big enough to accommodate all of Barack Obama’s empty rhetoric.

That’s why, at this year’s SOTU, murdered border patrol agents and victims killed in the name of Islam will not be esteemed. Neither will the cops shot in the head by a black man named Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, nor the innocent citizens slain by illegals currently walking the streets of America with Barack Obama’s approval.

Hillary Talks UFOs and Aliens…No, We’re Not Kidding

If it’s the aliens that are flooding over the border, Hillary Clinton is correct, “aliens” have already visited planet earth. But if it’s not the foreigners carrying with them Third World diseases and toting along a smattering of ISIS warriors dressed up as refugees, Mrs. Clinton may just need to readjust her tinfoil hat.

Recently, at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, when referring to spaceships that transport space cadets, Mrs. Clinton told the crowd, “I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure.”

So, let’s see, in lieu of a 9-year-old with whom to discuss gender pay equity, and for lack of a rape victim in the audience to verbally abuse, Hillary turned to talking extraterrestrials? What’s next, will Hillary prove the reality of the Abominable Snowman and claim she spotted the Loch Ness monster?

In fairness to Hillary though, this particular UFO conversation started up after the “smartest woman in the world” was asked to comment about something Bill said on a late night talk show in 2014 concerning the existence of interplanetary life.

It happened while Bill, whose comment was probably driven by a secret crush on Star Trek Vulcan Sub-Commander T-Pol, was appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” When asked about life on other planets, Bill said he believed it existed but cautioned, “I just hope it’s not like ‘Independence Day’.”

Picking up where Bill left off, the woman who vows to cure Alzheimer’s and will probably do it by blaming the disease on an anti-Muslim video was asked in New Hampshire about her husband’s comment. In response, Hillary reassured her audience that she would do what Bill failed to do, which was to “get to the bottom” of UFOs.

Does Hillary even know that “getting to the bottom” of something that flies above our heads is hard to do?

Either way; Hillary, who is an expert on every subject, said that the top open-records appeal for information her husband receives at The William J. Clinton Museum/Library, and occasional strip club, involves questions about unidentified objects that fly and otherwise.

Not only that, but also driving the UFO passion is Clinton inner-circle member, former White House chief of staff under Bill, and current Hillary campaign chairman, John Podesta. Hillary claims that Podesta, who looks a lot like an alien himself, is a major fan of UFO theories, which is all a liberal ever needed to invest tax dollars in chasing things like UFOs and unicorns.

Nonetheless, according to Hillary, Mr. Podesta made the presidential hopeful “personally pledge…to get the [UFO] information out, one way or another.”

That’s why, exposing the secret UFO information is an absolute must, and why Mrs. Clinton proposed, “Maybe, we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”

Where is Area 51 you ask?

Area 51 is the mysterious U.S. military installation located roughly 100 north of Las Vegas where, according to a How Stuff Works article by Jonathan Strickland and Patrick J. Kiger, entitled How Area 51 Works, conspiracy theorists believe “government researchers reverse-engineered captured alien spacecraft, tried to clone extraterrestrials, and filmed the fake moon landing in 1969.”

Although Hillary keeps the location of her secret emails under lock and key, at least, if she’s elected president, a federally funded task force will be given the go-ahead to reveal to the world the secrets of the universe.

With that in mind, in an “Orange is the New Black” pantsuit, Hillary Clinton is now officially the political equivalent to Captain Janeway. The problem is that despite wanting to rule the cosmos, Huma says Hillary is “often confused” and based on her spacey comments about UFOs may be Lost in Space too.

Yet even though Hillary the UFO Hunter has “lost her new car smell”, can’t find her husband, or her way back from the little girl’s room to the debate stage, Mrs. Clinton remains determined to become president, after which she’ll immediately “get to the bottom” of the UFO mystery.

How she’ll accomplish that objective is a bigger mystery than the location of those missing emails.

Thankfully, for lack of a spare extraterrestrial hanging around Area 51, if she’s (God forbid) elected, and if all else fails after making these promises, at least Hillary will be able to distract the nation by discussing the other UFO mystery that involved the unidentified flying “lamp/book/ Bible” she once threw at her husband’s head.

And if that doesn’t work, after pandering to one “alien” constituency, Hillary can always pander to yet another alien group by promising ET that if he makes an appearance, and gives credibility to her UFO claim, those who arrive on spaceships will be granted automatic amnesty.

Obama Spies on His Enemies in Congress

Remember when Obama, the guy with big plans to resettle America’s neighborhoods, clashed with Bibi Netanyahu for refusing to abandon construction and resettlement plans in East Jerusalem? The president was so incensed that Netanyahu hesitated to comply with his demands that he left the prime minister sitting in a room alone while he went upstairs to eat.

That’s when, out of fear of being wiretapped, Netanyahu and his delegation chose not to use White House phones.

As usual, Bibi’s discernment was on target because recently it was revealed that Obama, concerned about his nuke deal with Iran, directed the National Security Agency to spy on Israel, American Jewish groups, and friends of Israel in the U.S. Congress.

For eight years, in addition to displaying open hostility toward the Jewish state, here in America, the president has pushed the boundaries on everything from limiting First and Second Amendment rights to passing a failed stimulus package to ramming through healthcare reform to making a nuclear deal with Iran to promising amnesty to illegal aliens.

Yet despite the U.S. Constitution being shredded, the law flouted, and domestic and worldwide chaos being stirred up by a philosophically driven Obama, time and again, the onslaught of detrimental policy pronouncements have been met with an insipid response from the president’s supposed political adversaries.

Now, after learning that the Executive branch of the U.S. government spied on the Legislative branch, it’s less confusing as to why the former Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH), and his compadre in the Senate, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), seemed so reticent in resisting this president.

At first, it appeared as if former Speaker Boehner acquiesced out of fear that Republicans would be blamed for things like government shutdowns, or accused of not showing compassion toward hordes of “unaccompanied minors,” or worse yet, perceived to be the “Party of No.”

Now we find out that although John Boehner was likely spared the wrath of the battery cables, the antique dental drill, and duct tape, before grabbing his Coppertone and heading back to Ohio, Chicago-style coercion may be what caused teary-eyed Boehner to consistently fold like a cheap lawn chair.

Next up: Kevin McCarthy the Republican from California who was the shoo-in to replace Boehner.

After receiving an email from a “conservative activist” that threatened to expose an alleged extramarital affair, McCarthy withdrew his candidacy to be Speaker.

Ironically, McCarthy’s decision coincided with a cryptic letter written by Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC) to Republican Conference Chairperson, Cathy McMorris Rodgers. In the letter, Jones asked that candidates with “embarrassing… misdeeds … committed since joining Congress ” withdraw from running for positions of leadership.

What exactly did the North Carolina representative know, and what was his letter really alluding to?

Finally, there’s newly ordained Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan (R-WI). Paul’s the guy who, besides being Romney’s running mate in 2012, stood firmly against the Affordable Care Act. After being insulted publically by the president for daring to try to reel in the debt and deficit with actual numbers, Ryan had the guts to label Obama “the Campaigner-in-Chief.”

Unfortunately, somewhere between 2011 and 2016 Ryan lost his determination. Suddenly, the solutions the new speaker criticized so strongly in the past have become solutions he seems willing to live with.

Atrocities such as the $1.1 trillion Omnibus Spending Bill, which subsidizes the president’s plan to accept into America Syrian refugees who will likely be infiltrated by ISIS and leaves conservatives wanting on issues like defunding Planned Parenthood.

Worse yet, the spending bill contains provisions totaling over $1 billion to help fund the implementation of the same healthcare reform bill the new speaker spoke harshly against just five years earlier.

Speaking of surveillance and Obamacare, let’s not forget Republican Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ baffling decision that doubled down on defying the Constitution and helped pave the way for socialized medicine.

Now, The Wall Street Journal’s eye-opening piece titled: “U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress” may shed light on why two branches of the U.S. government have rolled over and accommodated Obama on every front.

According to the article, Barack Obama employed the NSA to spy on foreign leaders like Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Bibi Netanyahu, a practice he promised to discontinue doing to “friendly heads of state” two years ago.

An anonymous senior official quoted by the WSJ said that when the administration secured the NSA’s services the president’s goal was to ensure that Netanyahu did not stand in the way of Iran attaining the bomb they plan to use to annihilate Israel.

During the Iran deal negotiations, the NSA also listened in and reported back to the president conversations Benjamin Netanyahu had with friends in Congress. So, while targeting our allies, also “swept up …were the… content of private conversations with U.S. lawmakers.”

In other words, politicians that fit the president’s enemy criteria probably include any turncoat who attended Netanyahu’s March address to a joint session of Congress where Bibi argued against the president’s nuclear deal with Iran?

The 44 Democrat protesters who chose not to attend exempts only 8% of Congress from snooping.

Therefore, 92% of Congress may have had their private conversations wiretapped, which might explain why Republicans consistently grant a paranoid Obama unprecedented leeway on things they swear they oppose.

With that said, and although pure speculation, could the majority party’s consistent pusillanimous posture be based on their knowledge that America’s first black male president blackmails those he considers enemies in Congress? And didn’t Richard Nixon resign for much less?

Based on the seriousness of the spying accusation, if true, Barack Obama should step down or be impeached, which may require the Republicans in Congress to pull up their pants, place concern for self aside, and finally do something that’s long overdue — put the survival of America first.
