In his final address to America’s armed forces, President Barack Obama reminded troops that once Donald J. Trump becomes president, soldiers have a duty to question his authority and criticize him. Obama also said the Second Amendment and global warming can be blamed for terrorism.

Obama stood before soldiers at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, December 6, to talk about “the foundation that we will leave for the next administration,” reported
Characterizing the military’s mission as a fight against “violent extremism,” Obama insisted that soldiers need to rise up against Trump if they feel he is pushing policies that are ill considered.
Obama told the troops, “each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”
Obama went on to insist that a proper U.S. policy against “violent extremism” is a “long term” policy.
“So rather than offer false promises that we can eliminate terrorism by dropping more bombs or deploying more and more troops or fencing ourselves off from the rest of the world,” Obama said, “we have to take a long view of the terrorist threat. And we have to pursue a smart strategy that can be sustained. In the time remaining, let me just suggest what I think should guide this approach.”

The lame duck president also went on to blame terrorism on the Second Amendment and global warming.
In addressing the war-torn Middle East, Obama insisted that global warming forms a large part of that conflict. “A changing climate is increasing competition for food and water,” which, he claimed, drives the conflict in Syria and other nearby nations.
Obama also blamed the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution for “violent extremism” in the United States.
“Somebody who is trying to kill and willing to be killed is dangerous, particularly when we live in a country where it’s very easy for that person to buy a very powerful weapon,” Obama insisted.
The presidential short-timer also placed blame on the Constitution’s First Amendment, hinting that he thinks free speech is too freely indulged to prevent “impressionable minds” from being warped by “extremism” on the Internet.

Obama touted his efforts to limit the reach of terror recruiters online saying, “We’ve worked with our tech sector to support efforts to push back on terrorist messages on social media that motivate people to kill.”
The president also defended Islam against the charge of extremism:
We are fighting terrorists who claim to fight on behalf of Islam. But they do not speak for over a billion Muslims around the world, and they do not speak for American Muslims including many who wear the uniform of the United States of America’s military. If we stigmatize good patriotic Muslims, that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative. It fuels the same false grievances they they use to motivate people to kill. If we act like this is a war between the United States and Islam, we’re not gonna lose more Americans to terrorist attacks, but we’ll also lose the sight of the very principles we claim to defend
As to the rise of ISIS, Obama insisted it was not given aide by his actions of pulling out of Iraq in 2011 but was instead given succor by the policies of George W. Bush.

“By 2011, Iraqis wanted our military presence to end, and they were unwilling to sign a new status of forces agreement to protect our troops from prosecution if they were trying to defend themselves in Iraq,” Obama proclaimed. “In addition, maintaining American troops in Iraq at the time could not have reversed the forces that contributed to ISIL’s rise.”
Obama added, “Some of the mistakes of the 2003 invasion have helped to give rise to the organization that became ISIL in the first place.”

New Plans to ‘disrupt’ Trump’s inauguration

Donald Trump signs RNC loyalty pledge at Trump Tower, New York, America - 03 Sep 2015
Michael Moore, who is not a good loser, is calling for people to ‘dispupt’ the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump. Do not be misled by this code speak that is actually calling for riots and violence. His words are already the foundation and justification for any action they deem necessary. So much for the peaceful transfer of power. This aberant behavior cannot be allowed to stand. I have heard from other sources, by the way, that some biker groups supporting Trump will also be in attendance. Enough said.
As reported and seen first on Fox News:
Michael Moore — who predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency months before his surprise victory — is now encouraging people to protest the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration.

“Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have spoken – by nearly 2.7 million votes &counting! Silence is not an option,” Moore tweeted Wednesday.
The liberal filmmaker shared a link to the website for DisruptJ20, a campaign for “a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017.”

Government Threatens Action if Facebook doesn’t Censor “Fake News” and “Hate Speech” in 24 Hours
by: Tim Brown 

It's amazing how people who whine about tolerance and coexisting and democracy and such are the first ones to look to censor other's free speech and freedom of the press. Take the European Union for example. On Sunday, The EU's justice commissioner called on Facebook to censor a plethora of online speech, including what the state-controlled media has referred to as "fake news," which is really independent journalists and commentators.
Breitbart reports:
The unelected executive arm of the European Union (EU) is threatening to escalate from "non-legislative" action if Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube do not censor what it considers "illegal" online speech within 24 hours.

In May of this year, the U.S. tech giants signed a "code of conduct", promising to work with the Commission and national law enforcement to "criminalize" and "sanction" "individual perpetrators" as well as committing to "promoting independent counter-narratives" that the EU favours. 

Speaking on Sunday, the EU's justice commissioner added "fake news" to the list of what they want censored online.

The "series of commitments to combat the spread of illegal hate speech online in Europe" developed "together with… the IT companies" included a promise to "review the majority" of flagged "hate speech" within 24 hours.

So far, the Commission claims that this is only occurring in France and Germany. Interestingly, they have been the recipients of quite a few Muslim invaders. Does anyone smell political correctness to protect the guilty in all of this?
EU Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová told The Financial Times (FT): "If Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft want to convince me and the ministers that the non-legislative approach can work, they will have to act quickly and make a strong effort in the coming months."
"The last weeks and months have shown that social media companies need to live up to their important role and take up their share of responsibility when it comes to phenomena like online radicalisation, illegal hate speech or fake news," she added.

In an interview with Breitbart London in May, UKIP's former Justice and Home Affairs spokeswoman and (briefly) leader Diane James MEP said, "This legislation is so vague that it is the thin end of the wedge not just to curb hate speech but free speech as well."
"Different people and cultures across Europe have different ways of communicating," she added. "The Liberal tradition in Britain for instance is more open and very different from that of dictatorial former Communist countries in the East."
Melissa Dykes comments on exactly what this is all about.
And of course "hate speech" is very loosely defined here, so it can basically be used to censor free speech online. We all know what the phrase "fake news" has come to denote — and nearly the entire alternative media is encompassed within it.

It should be no surprise that the same "fake news" the EU wants to censor has been blamed for Brexit and the potential for other countries like Italy deciding to leave the EU as well.

Now that these companies have signed on willingly for the censorship, and President Obama has given up control of the Internet just like George Soros wanted him to, it's pretty clear where all of this is headed. 

"They are shutting down freedom of speech on the Internet," she concludes. "Keep speaking the truth online… while you still can."
Facebook has already been attacking voices in opposition to Islam, the current administration, and Hillary Clinton. Google, Microsoft and other outfits are joining in that same campaign, which is to silence your voice in the online marketplace.
Censoring free speech is not a part of government's job.
Speak out!
