Looking Back at Clint Eastwood's Musical Career

clint eastwood

Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort, an adaptation of the Broadway show Jersey Boys, which opened Friday. While Dirty Harry might not be the first name you think of when it comes to musical extravaganzas, we would argue that Clint’s been heading towards this his whole career. Below, we catalogued his not-so-secret past as a music maestro:

Rawhide (1963)
Eastwood got his big break playing Rowdy Yates on the long-running CBS western (he was 28 when the series premiered in 1959). This saloon scene, in which Rowdy croons a love song as he plays the piano, aired the same year that Eastwood released his first album, Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites

Looking Back at Clint Eastwood's Musical Career 
Paint Your Wagon (1969)
This notoriously bloated movie musical features Eastwood warbling a Broadway tune. “I Talk to the Trees” might well be the song that inspired Billy Crystal to sit on Eastwood’s lap at the 2004 Oscars and beg him never to sing again

Play Misty for Me (1971)
Eastwood was a jazz lover from childhood. “That whole mid-’40s be-bop scene, that was a terrific era for a young kid who was interested in music,” he recalled in the LA Times. His directorial debut, a proto-Fatal Attraction stalker film, had Eastwood playing the host of a jazz radio show. The song “Misty” is woven throughout the film, which also contains a somewhat superfluous 15-minute concert scene filmed at the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival.   

"Bar Room Buddies" (1980)
Eastwood unexpectedly became a moderately successful country singer in 1980, thanks to two alcohol-themed tunes. “Bar Room Buddies,” a duet with Merle Haggard from Eastwood’s movie Bronco Billy, climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. He also did a duet with Ray Charles, “Beers to You,” that was heard during the bareknuckle-brawl comedy Any Which Way You Can. The song didn’t take off, but the movie soundtrack debuted at no. 5 on the country albums chart. Growing up, Eastwood has said he “developed a love for country music, which was gradually taking the place of old-time pop music, where they told a story and you could actually understand the lyrics.”

Bundy Ranch Revisited: This Utah County Is Taking A Stand Against The BLM

[Utah county follows Cliven Bundy's lead, refuses to recognize federal jurisdiction]

[Commissioner Jae Potter (Rep)]


Months after national attention was focused on a standoff between supporters of a Nevada rancher and armed Bureau of Land Management agents, a group of Utah residents are mounting a similar campaign to rein in the bloated influence of federal bureaucrats.
As Western Journalism reported, rancher Cliven Bundy was accused of neglecting to pay federal grazing fees, which led to a tense encounter with BLM officers.
Carbon County commissioners recently passed a strongly-worded resolution prohibiting the BLM and other federal agents from enforcing laws regarding issues over which local authorities should have control.
Using capital letters to emphasize the point, commissioners declared that the influence of such land management officials “IS NOT RECOGNIZED” and will be considered “AN IMMINENT THREAT TO THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE OF THE CITIZENS OF CARBON COUNTY.”

The move came on the heels of an effort by officials in another Utah county who urged the BLM to reconsider a longstanding ban on motorized vehicles on local land.
Even more counties are reportedly upset and confused by the growing intrusion of federal laws on individuals who rely on their land to make a living. One state legislator spoke for seven counties when he expressed the frustration of many Utah residents.
Rep. Mike Noel asserted that many in the state are having “very, very difficult time understanding some of the decisions that come down.”
Rep. Ken Ivory joined in the criticism by lambasting the heavily armed agents who converged on the Bundy Ranch “to collect a fee or fine,” explaining he had “not seen that before.”

The BLM has drawn the ire of Utah’s governor, too. Spencer Cox decried the fact that the agency declared contracts it held with sheriff’s offices in the state “illegal,” making Utah the only state in which it cancelled such agreements.
While Carbon County leaders might have taken the most decisive step in pushing back against federal intrusion, it is clear the outrage stoked during the Bundy Ranch standoff continues to spread throughout states like Utah and across the nation.

Enough Is Enough: Quit With The Lies, Obama!

Obama lies


Watch and remember as we take a look back at some (because who can count how many?) of the lies that Obama has told over his presidency.
The Lord is watching Mr. Obama.  For someone who considers himself a Christian, James 5:12 is awfully convicting. Obama-Lies

“But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any oath, but let your ‘yes’ be yes, and your ‘no’ be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.”

When Is A Law Law?

Funny Gun Law Stuff

If you think that law is something that a judge can make just by deciding a case that comes before him, or if you think that law is something that a legislature can make just by passing a bill and sending it to a governor or a president for his approval, or if you think that a governor or a president can make law just by means of an executive order, then I would respectfully suggest that you are mistaken about the true source and nature of law.
What is law? Where does it come from and how can I know what it is and what it isn’t?
American law is based on the view that the moral law of the God of the Bible is controlling in all cases. In the Declaration of Independence, this moral law is referred to as “The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
When human beings, God’s creatures, draw up constitutions and statutes and ordinances and regulations, these enactments are dependent for their validity on their being in harmony with the moral law I just mentioned. If these man-made actions conflict with God’s moral law, then they are not law at all.

Here’s how Sir William Blackstone put it in his famous Commentaries on the Laws of England:
“Upon these two foundations, the Law of Nature and the Law of Revelation (The Bible), depend all human laws: that is to say, no human law should be suffered to contradict these.”
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson used the words “pretended legislation” to describe such vain enactments.
When our local officials, including County Councilmen and Sheriffs, confront such “pretended legislation,” it is their duty to resist its implementation.

The Greatest Scam Artist In History

Desperate Obama to "shame you into donating"
The greatest scam artist in history has scammed America — again. A terrorist mastermind gets Miranda rights on American soil, while a U.S. Marine hero has no rights in Mexico. That’s par for the course in Barack Obama’s America.
Look around. America is in free fall. The Internal Revenue Service scandal is exploding: The IRS says “the dog ate Lois Lerner’s emails.” The very evidence that could lead to the impeachment of the President has disappeared into cyberspace. At the same moment, Obama is still taking heat for releasing five Jihadist mass murderers in a swap for a deserter. At the same moment, Iraq is crumbling. Everything we fought for, the trillion dollars we spent “liberating” Iraq, the many brave men who died… it’s all being erased as Iraq falls to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Soon, Baghdad will fall; the writing is already on the wall. This is the greatest foreign policy embarrassment in U.S. history. Then there’s the Veterans Affairs scandal. Under Obama’s leadership, the Nation is in crisis and dramatic decline.
So what does the greatest scam artist to ever occupy the White House do? He pulls out the WMD (weapons of mass distraction). He “wags the dog” to distract the masses. He gives permission for U.S. special forces to capture the architect of Benghazi — a terrorist hiding in plain sight for the past 20 months. Presto. The Kool-Aid drinking mainstream media call Obama “a hero.” Amazing. No one can be this dumb, can he?

But the scam is much deeper than it appears. The capture of Benghazi terrorist mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala isn’t just a cover-up for the PR mess Obama is in. The capture itself is the biggest scam of all.
First, we let this Benghazi butcher enjoy life in plain view for 20 months. Suddenly, Obama decides the time is right to capture him — right at the exact moment Obama needed to change the headlines. Pure bread and circuses. I’m surprised he didn’t just call for the start of the “Hunger Games.”
But the second part of Obama’s scam is far more dastardly. Obama is sending the terrorist mastermind to the U.S. instead of Guantanamo. He will be read his Miranda rights, like any other American citizen innocent until proven guilty. Why? Guantanamo was built for exactly this kind of unique situation, to house “the worst of the worst” enemy combatants and to interrogate them without the need for Miranda rights.
This scam was all planned out for months — 20 months, to be exact. Obama wanted the perfect timing — to hide a country in disarray and decline. And he wanted the perfect circumstances — the man with the knowledge of what happened at Benghazi protected by Miranda.

Abu Khattala is the definition of a “high-value target.” He can put Obama’s fingerprints at the scene of the crime. He can testify that Benghazi was a terrorist attack from Day One, that no protest of a movie was ever involved. He can testify that his terrorists used weapons supplied to Libyan rebels by the Obama Administration to kill our own brave men. He can testify that even the terrorists were shocked that Obama never sent a rescue mission. He can say: “We all expected to die on a suicide mission, but your President was too weak to fight back. Because of Obama, this was a great victory; and we lived to brag about it.”
So how do you shut up the terrorist mastermind? You read him his Miranda rights. You tell him he has the right to “lawyer up.” You protect him from enhanced interrogation. On American soil we can’t touch him. No Jack Bauer-style creative interrogation. No loud music. No threats to his family. No nothing. Here it’s just nice questions asked by polite FBI agents who could lose their pensions if they don’t mind their manners.
Here in America a high-profile trial like this will take years to happen — two, or three, or four years. Just enough time that Obama is safely out of office. So even if the terrorist talks at trial, which is unlikely, no one will hear about it until Obama is enjoying life as a billionaire author and global speaker at his Hawaii estate.

This is how you silence a dangerous witness for years. This is how you keep him from ever disclosing the secrets that can bring you down. You bring him to America and give him a team of lawyers. You can bet Obama’s top enforcer, Attorney General Eric Holder, will make sure Abu Khattala has an O.J. Simpson-like “dream team.” Game, set, match. The terrorist provides cover for Obama. His capture makes Obama look good. But he’s guaranteed to never talk.
Now compare this situation with our hero Marine being tortured in a Mexican prison. Sgt Andrew Tahmoorisi has been given no Miranda rights. He made a wrong turn at the border and wound up shackled at four points to a bed, while Mexican guards kicked him in the ribs. Then he was denied food and water. Our hero Marine has no rights… for the crime of bad driving. Yet a mass-murdering terrorist mastermind is protected by Miranda rights on American soil.
It’s all going bad, folks.
Obama plays chess at a higher level. The GOP is led by weak-willed cowards and idiots. The Republican leadership is playing checkers… without a board. The greatest scam artist in the history of the White House wins another round.
And the death of America continues unabated.

New Meme: Liberty Movement More Dangerous Than Al-Qaida

New Meme: Liberty Movement More Dangerous Than Al-Qaida
Is the liberty movement more dangerous than al-Qaida? CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen thinks so.
“According to data collected by the New America Foundation, right-wing extremists have killed 37 people in 16 violent incidents, in the United States since the 9/11 attacks. That number is more than the 21 people killed by militants motivated by al-Qaeda’s ideology in the United States in the post-9/11 era,” Bergen recently wrote for
Apparently, so do Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid, neither of whom have found time lately to denounce either al-Qaida or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group that instigated the attempted takeover of Iraq. But they have found time to call gun rights supporters “terrorists.”

The source of Bergen’s data, the New American Foundation, is a George Soros- and CIA-funded, globalist-backed misinformation disseminating think tank. Other sources of Bergen’s disinformation piece include the Southern Preposterous Lie Center. Of course, it may just be a coincidence that al-Qaida was created, funded and equipped by the CIA and that ISIS leaders were trained by agents of the U.S. government.
Since 2009, the regime has been working overtime in attempting to sway public opinion against those who oppose the growing tyranny of the U.S. government. In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a report titled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recuitment.” In 2013, the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., came out with a new report titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far Right.” The report lumps limited government activists into three categories it claims are responsible for 350 “attacks initiated by far-right groups/individuals” in 2011: racist/white supremacists, anti-Federalists and fundamentalists. The report did not define what makes an attack a “far-right” action, nor did it list specific events except to compare them to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City (a likely false flag attack exploited by President Bill Clinton to bolster his sagging Presidency) and the Atlanta abortion clinic bombing by Eric Robert Rudolph.

The report links the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right” and describes conservatives as living in the past and liberals as being “future oriented.”
In 2012, the FBI in Colorado issued a report telling businesses to be suspicious of people who: are concerned about identity privacy; pay with cash; alter their appearance by changing their hairstyle or growing (or shaving) facial hair; have missing fingers and hands; make religious statements; and make bulk purchases of food, ammunition and high-capacity magazines.
The truth is, attacks on police officers — whether by so-called “right wing extremists” or simply criminals doing what criminals do –are down. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page website, only 30 died by gunfire in 2013. In 2012, 48 were shot. In 1990. that number was 60.
Yet it is the government that is militarizing local police forces by giving them military surplus equipment and training. And police are becoming more violent by the day, as we show with multiple accounts in our Power of the State section. And it is government that is fomenting wars and arming terrorists around the globe while it attempts to disarm Americans. And it was Barack Obama who considered deploying the military on supporters of Cliven Bundy.
So is the liberty movement more dangerous than al-Qaida? To the statists in government, probably so. But not because it’s violent.

Boots on the ground in Iraq again? Smacks of Vn again!

Seven steps the US must take to stop radical Islam in their proverbial tracks....!!

... muslim organization called sharia h for america which is pro sharia

First and foremost: people need to educate themselves on the myth of it came into being and the goals it sets..Caliphate/Sharia Law by any means they deem necessary....the Ottoman Empire was beaten but did not go away...they went underground in 1929...and have been working on their return to Caliphate since...they almost succeeded during WWII by becoming allies with Hitlers Nazi socialist party! They once again went underground and continued the course/drive toward a new Caliphate!


Second: Congress needs to enact a law making the practice,worship and teaching of 'Sharia Law' a class A felony in the United States of America... any immigrated / naturalized citizen who is found to practice,teach,promote 'Sharia Law' should be immediately arrested,stripped of their citizenship and deported to their country of origin!... any US natural citizen by birth should be sentenced to a federal prison for not less than 10 years first offense...second offense life! [In addition to any other Federal or State laws broken by applying Sharia Law]
Sharia Law Unavoidable" - Archbishop of Canterbury Muslim woman receiving Sharia justice. She is about to be stoned to ...

Third: The US needs to break free from reliance on Middle East oil...Open the Keystone pipe line project...increase fracking for oil and gas reserves within the United States of America.  Become a Independent oil and gas nation... we have more oil and gas reserves than all of the ME Sarah Palin puts it so well... 'Drill baby Drill!

Fourth: Impeach,arrest and prosecute the entire Obama administration for sedition/treason ...Enough is Enough of these radical Islam enablers!

Fifth:The US military should be returned to it's natural state of being non PC and well financed...Generals and Admirals should have free rein to run the military free from political intervention, under the established Military Code of Justice!

Sixth: All Islam/ Sharia Law compliant countries should be put on notice that if the US is attacked again they will be held responsible for any and all radical Islam participation~[Fact Saudi Arabia is the main financier along with Iran]...and their major cities who adhere to Sharia Law will be taken out in a retaliation strike ie: Mecca gone! ... holy city of Mecca to make the spiritual pilgrimage known as The Hajj ...Middle East countries must understand if they finance,encourage,support and allow for any attack on the US proper, they are the responsible party to the action and retaliation that will come immediately! This must be stressed to the other words the US must take off the Kid Gloves and make it crystal clear of our intent! 
 ... Muslims must apply Sharia Law and reestablish the Islamic Caliphate
[Lest us not forget...!]

Seventh: any elected official,appointed Federal Judge including SCOTUS who attacks/ goes around  the US Constitution/Bill of Rights should be considered committing Sedition bordering on Treason...they will be Impeached,arrested and prosecuted as such.

Will America Need A Nuremberg Trial?

The most devastating court loss last week, of course, came August 12 ...

If Barack Obama is not removed from office before his term expires, it will be a tacit endorsement of permanent political corruption in Washington DC.
Obama, however, is a symptom, not the disease itself, which like early stage cancer has spread largely undetected by the American people.
By combining lawlessness and incompetence, the Obama Administration has set a new standard for executive malfeasance bordering on treason.
It is those very deficiencies, however, that have, as never before, exposed the extent and depth of corruption among our politicians and members of the media. 
obama jail.png

Many of them have set a new standard for tolerance of official misconduct bordering on misprision of felony, the deliberate concealment of one’s knowledge of a criminal act.
It is only within the context of a hopelessly corrupt political-media culture could a man so lacking in experience, so wanting in ethical qualities, and embracing beliefs so antithetical to American values and traditions rise to the highest office in the land.
The tenant in the White House leads a deceitful and inexperienced group of extreme left ideologues, who foster policies that risk the survival of the republic, undermine the security of its citizens, and abrogate their unalienable rights.
Politicians and journalists do not aggressively challenge Obama because it would ultimately expose their complacency or complicity in Obama’s violations of the Constitution, uncover their willful ignorance of his alleged felonies, and confirm their participation in the greatest election fraud and Constitutional crisis in American history.

Their avarice and timidity have made them victims of political blackmail.
The political-media elite cannot tell the truth about Obama because it would threaten their collective power, privilege, and wealth, which they now preserve at the expense of the well-being of the nation.
Ambrose Bierce, a 19th century political satirist, accurately described Washington D.C. as:
“a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles and the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”
Our present national crisis results directly from the dereliction of duty shown by politicians and journalists who did not properly vet Obama before the 2008 Presidential election.
The Democratic Party and its propaganda arm, the mainstream media, overcome by politically correct euphoria and the prospect of socialism, willingly ignored Obama’s dubious personal history–as well as his ineligibility and incapability for the Presidency.
The Republicans feared criticism by the media and being labelled racists for questioning Obama’s background or fitness for office. Long ago, the Republican establishment jettisoned its principles to win elections, deciding that in order to do so, they had to behave like Democrats.

Despite the enormous historical and Constitutional implications, the politicians and the media not only have remained silent but have actively suppressed legitimate inquiry. Due to either complicity or cowardice, a conspiracy of silence descended upon the public discourse regarding questions that might challenge the legality of the Obama Presidency.
How far will our political-media elite go to protect their own interests by continuing to protect Obama?
How much damage will America need to sustain before our “leaders” decide that they love their country more than they love themselves?
The fact that Obama happened is bad enough, but those who allowed Obama to happen need to be held accountable because their betrayal is far greater.
The time for retribution is coming.

Correcting Media Lies And Half-Truths: Las Vegas Killers Were Bottom-Feeding “Occupiers”

Jerad Miller cried ‘hysterically’ when he was asked to leave Bundy ... 
How Fox News Covers Right-Wing Cop Killers | Blog | Media Matters for ...


The media has been caught lying about a gun violence episode once again. Last week’s terrible murder in Las Vegas of two cops and an innocent man was turned into another dishonest attempt to strip guns from honest law-abiding citizens.
What we know to be true in this story is that two miserable pieces of human debris, Amanda and Jerad Miller, first killed two cops in a restaurant and then entered a Walmart intent upon committing murder. Seeing that both of them were armed, an honest citizen who had a legal right to carry a gun confronted them and was shot and murdered by Amanda Miller.
As is the case whenever a sensational gun related crime occurs, the dishonest media worked overtime to portray the shooters as somehow connected to any Right wing group they could. This case was no different. The two murderers were quickly painted as Tea party supporters and Right-wing extremists.
The truth about these two swine is that not only were they not connected to any Right wing group; they were in fact “Occupy” movement people and avowed enemies of our way of life. The Millers were present at the Bundy Ranch showdown, but only because they were violent anarchists who loved death and were likely hoping to see some death during the standoff.

Again, contrary to the media’s prepackaged “fill in the date and a few other details” narrative, the Millers were detected and ejected at the Bundy Ranch. They were not accepted and treated as comrades in arms.
The lesson in this case is always the same. The media are not on the side of average Americans. In fact, they hate us and would rather spend a month in prison than an hour with the “rubes and yahoos” they think we are. It is precisely because of this that we must never stop correcting their lies.
The Millers were being readied by the Leftist media to be THE shooting that finally stripped us of our guns – every shooting always is. When stories like this appear, each of us must become our own free press. Learn the truth, and speak the truth. Don’t assume someone else will do it for us.

Virtually every day, the media works to take away our freedoms with lies. In response, we have two choices: help them with our silence, or fight them with our voices.
Keep asking questions, and keep demanding answers. It’s the only way we will ever get the truth.

The Mom Of The Marine Held In Mexico Reveals How Obama Is Ignoring Her Pleas

Mother of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi
OTR has obtained two photos of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi in ...

Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s mother is frustrated by the lack of response from the State Department and White House, despite exceeding the signature requirements on her “We the People” petition that entitles her to an official response.
Andrew has been in a prison cell in Mexico since March 31, after he accidentally crossed the border while in possession of 3 firearms.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo interviewed the distraught mom to get an update on her son’s status.  He asked her if she had heard from the State Department.  “I have not,” Jill Tahmooressi told him.  “I did reach the 100,000 signature threshold, but that was May 30th; and I go on every morning–the first thing I do when I wake up, I go online.  And I’ve not received a response yet on that petition site, so that is frustrating.”
Ms. Tahmooressi is hiring a third attorney in the hope of clearing her son’s charges. 

Are The Two Political Parties About To Crack Up?

hillary clinton, funny pictures

America’s two political parties seem to be coming apart.
That’s in contrast to the relatively stable competition of the last 20 years, when Democrats have won four of six presidential elections and Republicans won House majorities in eight of 10 congressional contests, always by less than landslide margins. The parties’ stands on issues have remained familiar from one cycle to the next.
That pattern seems likely to hold this year, with Republicans favored to hold their House majority, and with a better than 50 percent chance of gaining the Senate majority that eluded them in 2010 and 2012.
But the outlook for 2016 is murky, with a stale Hillary Clinton way ahead of other Democrats and a stable of Republicans closely clustered out of the starting gate with no clear leader or perceptible opening.

Congressional Democrats have been bucking the Obama administration on both right and left.
Senate Democrats rejected judicial nominees as insufficiently liberal. They blocked the nomination of an assistant attorney general nominee who supported the appeal of the murderer of a Philadelphia policeman and a surgeon general nominee who tweeted that “guns are a health care issue.”
Democratic Senate nominees have blasted the Obama EPA’s power plant regulations, and Arkansas incumbent Mark Pryor now refuses to say whether he’d vote for Obamacare again. Only Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s refusal to call up legislation or allow amendments has prevented other schisms from becoming visible.
Democratic disagreements have also been visible in Hillary Clinton’s book promotion tour.

As in 2008, she has apologized for supporting the 2002 Iraq war resolution; and she refused to say whether the Keystone XL pipeline should be approved, even though her State Department report found it environmentally unthreatening.
Clearly, Clinton is catering to the antiwar left and to San Francisco hedge-fund billionaire Tom Steyer, who has pledged to spend $100 million to block Keystone.
As the world spins in disarray, she sometimes distances herself from the president she served for four years. She would have aided Syrian rebels, she says, and would not have dropped Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak so abruptly. She doesn’t quite agree with the Bowe Bergdahl deal.
But she also says the five released Taliban leaders pose no threat to the United States and defended National Security Agency data mining. She squirmed under ABC’s Diane Sawyer’s questions about Benghazi and NPR’s Terry Gross’ questions about her late conversion to favor same-sex marriage.

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows that 55 percent of voters consider her “knowledgeable and experienced”; but only 38 percent say she is “honest and straightforward,” while 40 percent say she’s not. Publishing-world gossip is that her current book’s sales lag well behind her 2003 memoir.
Certainly, she’s not getting the adulation lavished on her in editor Tina Brown’s 2011 debut Newsweek cover story celebrating “how she’s shattering glass ceilings everywhere!” — a curious comment for the third female secretary of State. It’s hard to be the latest new thing when you’ve been a major public figure for 22 years.

Just When You Think Obama’s Foreign Policy Couldn’t Get Any More Misguided…He Says This!

President Obama told reporters in a special press conference Thursday that “Iran can play a constructive role if it is helping send the same message to the Iraqi government that we’re sending, which is that Iraq only holds together if it’s inclusive and that if the interests of Sunni, Shi’a and Kurd are all respected.”
Yet this may be wishful thinking on Obama’s part, as the chief of general staff of Iran’s armed forces, Hassan Firouzabadi, told reporters on Wednesday that Iran will never cooperate with the U.S. in fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Obama DHS Adviser Mohamed Elibiary’s Anti-American Tweets Celebrated by Brutal ISIS Jihadists

Iraqi terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, are praising and potentially recruiting extremists based on controversial tweets by a senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser who recently claimed that ISIL is proof that a Muslim "caliphate" is making an "inevitable" return. 

This is one of the Obama administration Muslim Brotherhood operatives and embeds who are dismantling our defenses from within and laying the groundwork for jihad.
Longtime Atlas readers are long familiar with Mohamed Elibiary. Elbiary has accessed sensitive docs of state and local intelligence reports, and then leaked them. He is a vocal supporter of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. And he supports convicted terrorist fundraisers. He considers the United States an "Islamic country." 

Mohamed Elibiary's twitter profile incorporates the hand signal for the global jihad revolution, "R4BIA" four-finger salute symbol associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
There have been questions about Mohamed Elibiary's true allegiances for years. He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled "A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary." The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.
Elibiary has accused the persecuted and oppressed Christians under Muslim Brotherhood rule of "inciting Muslims" to jihad.
How this jihad embed has not been summarily fired speaks to who and what we have in the White House and his party of treason.
DHS Adviser's Anti-American Tweets Celebrated by ISIS Terrorists
Elibiary's controversial tweets coopted by terrorists, By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, June 19, 2014

Affiliates of the Iraqi terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, are praising and potentially recruiting extremists based on controversial tweets by a senior Department of Homeland Security(DHS) adviser who recently claimed that ISIL is proof that a Muslim "caliphate" is making an "inevitable" return.
The recent tweets by Mohamed Elibiary, a controversial figure who serves as a senior member of DHS' Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), were recently picked up in the Arabic press and widely disseminated on Twitter by multiple Islamic extremists.
Elibiary's tweets—which disparaged Americans as showing "belligerence" after the 9/11 terror attacks and told of the "inevitable" return of the Muslim caliphate—drew widespread criticism online and prompted calls for his removal from DHS' advisory committee.

Now the comments are being circulated and praised by Islamic jihadists affiliated with ISIL and Syrian extremists.
"Starting yesterday, Arabic reports of Elibiary's comments went viral on social media and were especially disseminated by Islamic extremist Twitter accounts and those affiliated with [ISIL] and/or jihadi fighters in Syria, Iraq, and even Yemen" Oren Adaki, an Arabic language specialist at Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), told the Washington Free Beacon.
"Many of these tweets were accompanied by #Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_Syria and #Remains hashtags, implying that the Elibiary's comments validated that the U.S. recognizes and has come to terms with ISIL's advance in Syria and Iraq," Adaki said.
Elibiary's made the comments late last week during a discussion about ISIL'srise in Iraq.
"As I've said b4 inevitable that 'Caliphate' returns," Elibiary tweeted in response to a question about ISIL, which is currently seeking to overthrow the Iraqi government and instate strict Sharia law in the country.

"Choice only whether we support [European Union] like Muslim Union vision or not," continued Elibiary, who has "advised numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement organizations on homeland security-related matters," according to his biography on DHS' website.

Bombshell: We Know The Whereabouts of Lost IRS Emails

NSA Phone Records
A Congressional inquiry into the targeting of Tea Party and Conservative organizations by the IRS has revealed that thousands of emails from IRS head Lois Lerner and at least six of her subordinates have been lost to history after the hard drive which stored them was reportedly thrown away. The loss of the emails makes it nearly impossible to track down and verify what actually took place and whether or not the Obama administration was directly involved in the harassment of independent groups that didn’t agree with the President’s political platform. 

Without the emails their is no accountability, despite the fact that the President Obama has repeatedly claimed that transparency and the rule of law would be touchstones of his Presidency. “Starting today every agency and department should know that this administration stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information, but those who seek to make it known,” said President Obama at a press conference on the day he took office in January of 2009.

The President’s past statements run contrary to the events playing out on Capitol Hill today, where the IRS has claimed that the emails have been “lost forever.”
Congressman Darrell Issa pointed out the ridiculousness of the claims saying that such records could only disappear because of deliberate destruction.
“Official records, like the e-mails of a prominent official, don’t just disappear without a trace unless that was the intention.”
It turns out that Senator Darrell Issa is right. Records like these don’t just disappear without a trace.
We know the whereabouts of the lost IRS emails and they could likely be accessed and shown to the American public within 24 hours.
It turns out that there just so happens to be a redundant set of digital records available in a facility capable of holding some septillion pages of information (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pages of text) that has been actively aggregating and storing digital data for years.

Access to any of those records can be had with a simple directive from the President of the United States.
The facility where the records are stored, along with the private emails, text messages, google searches and 20 trillion domestic phone calls since 2001 is owned and operated by America’s National Security Agency which, among other things, is responsible for the monitoring of American citizens and storing any and all digital interactions captured on private and public telecommunications lines. The NSA’s most advanced intelligence monitoring facility is located at Camp Williams and is called the “Utah Data Center.”

If the emails ever existed, whether they were deliberately wiped or accidentally lost, the National Security Agency undoubtedly has a digital record of them

Intelligence officials and law enforcement refer to the phenomenon as “digital permanence” and what it means is that there exists a record of every digital interaction taking place over the internet somewhere. So, even if you happen to lose a hard drive or purposefully click that delete button, you’d be in luck. The National Security Agency has a copy of it because they have been effectively collecting all data sent over telecommunications lines in the United States since at least 2001. 

The mind-boggling amount of data being collected at this and other facilities seems like something out of a science fiction movie, but according to award-winning mathematician and NSA whistleblower William Binney it is very real – and it’s been happening for quite some time. And just in case you think they’re collecting “meta-data” such the the sender, receiver and subject line of an email exclusively, according to Binney, they are also collecting the content of the communication as well. That means they know what you texted, said on a phone call, or wrote in an email. 

Binney explained that the government is taking the position that it can gather and use any informationabout American citizens living on U.S. soil if it comes from:
Any service provider … any third party … any commercial company – like a telecom or internet service provider, libraries, medical companies – holding data about anyone, any U.S. citizen or anyone else.
The government is gathering everything, including content.
Binney explained – as he has many times before – that the government is storing everything, and creating a searchable database … to be used whenever it wants, for any purpose it wants (even just going after someone it doesn’t like).

Given this revelation from someone who understands the inner workings of NSA signals intelligence and how they collect data, it’s clear that despite the IRS losing the emails in question, there exist exact replicas of them at the NSA.
It should only be a matter of time now before President Obama officially requests that the NSA turn over these records so that he can prove to the American public once and for all that neither he nor those in his administration had any knowledge or influence over the IRS targeting of political enemies.

Jay Sekulow Going After Evidence-Destroying IRS

Jay Sekulow
Congress may be dunked in a bucket of yellow paint, but let me tell you something: I know Jay Sekulow. I have worked with and for Jay Sekulow. When you look up "bulldog" in the encyclopedia, you will see his face.

From this brief interview, I can see that Jay is... ... ... a bit upset. Contrary to the pink panty wearers from John Boehner on down in Congress---on both sides of the aisle, because I will remind you that with Richard Nixon, it was his own Party that filed the Articles of Impeachment against him; Party affiliation should not matter when you're talking criminal behavior of this magnitude--Jay is not going to back down... he is going to chase these vermin till he gets answers.  

We need to be praying for Jay and his team. For once, we do have the right man on the job. Go get 'em, Jay

U.S. Sanctions Uganda because They Punish Homosexual Acts Much Less Severely than Saudi Arabia

uganda map
Uganda can’t complain that John Kerry didn’t warn them about allowing the Bible to inform their laws and their morality. Despite the fact that Saudi Arabia punishes homosexuals far more severely, Uganda is on the receiving end of a sanctions campaign. 
From Yahoo News:
The United States on Thursday cut aid to Uganda, imposed visa restrictions and canceled a regional military exercise in response to a Ugandan law that imposes harsh penalties on homosexuality.
The White House said in a statement the measures were intended to "reinforce our support for human rights of all Ugandans regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity."
Homosexuality is taboo in most African countries and illegal in 37, including in Uganda where it has been a crime since British rule. 

Just curious, but what about the right of a nation to determine its own laws? Is the Ugandan parliament supposed to tell all its Christian and Moslem voters to get stuffed because they were elected to office to do the bidding of the U.S. State Department? Is that our foreign policy now?
Since this law has been in place for so long, why is it now provoking such a reaction?

Part of the reason is that a new law was passed:
Uganda's new law, signed by President Yoweri Museveni in February, imposes jail terms of up to life for "aggravated homosexuality" which includes homosexual sex with a minor or while HIV-positive.
So we’re sanctioning a country for penalizing child molestation and murder through an infectious disease? I constantly hear that AIDS is overwhelming Africa. Naturally, a government would want to outlaw people from intentionally spreading it.

The good news is that, so far, Uganda is unbowed.
In Kampala, a government official asked about the U.S. measures said that Uganda would not alter its decision to toughen laws against homosexuals.
"Uganda is a sovereign country and can never bow to anybody or be blackmailed by anybody on a decision it took in its interests, even if it involves threats to cut off all financial assistance," government spokesman Ofwono Opondo said.
We are dictating Uganda’s internal policy. They aren’t going to take it

DHS Set to Pay For Illegal Minors to be Escorted Into U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security is set to pay for illegal minors up to the age of 17 to be escorted into the United States, according to a new solicitation posted at FedBizOpps.
ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.
The post does not explain how ICE arrived at the figure of 65,000 children, nor does it clear up why 50% of the illegal minors are arriving via commercial air. The DHS intends to award the chosen vendor(s) 5 year fix priced contracts.

The program to use taxpayer money to escort illegal minors into the United States dovetails with a recent Infowars exclusive concerning how South Texas Church groups are transporting countless illegals into the United States before letting them go “wherever they want to go.”

Obama: It Wasn’t My Decision to Pull Troops Out of Iraq

oped: Just *SMH* does this poser ever take responsibility for his actions? He has definitely worn out his welcome in the WH! Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Davis Obama or whatever your real name is just pack yo s*** and get before we the people have you Impeached,arrested and prosecuted for High Crimes and misdemeanors #Sedition/Treason

Asked if he had any “regrets” about not leaving a residual force in Iraq, Obama advised reporters to “Keep in mind, that wasn’t a decision made by me. That was a decision made by the Iraqi government.”
Back in 2011, Obama proudly touted the small number of troops remaining in Iraq as one of his foremost accomplishments. “When I came into office,” he boasted at the time, “I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. As Commander in Chief, I ended our combat mission last year and pledged to keep our commitment to remove all our troops by the end of 2011. To date, we’ve removed more than 100,000 troops from Iraq.”
In 2011 and 2012, the news was rife with triumphant quotes from Obama about the withdrawal: “After nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over.” “Change is turning the page on a decade of war so we can do some nation building here at home.” He even announced that he and Maliki were “in full agreement about how to move forward.”

oped: Oh really now and what about the looney left ranting and raving about how GW's administration lied about (WMD's)weapons of mass destruction? #BUSTED #OWNED

Islamist militants in Iraq have taken over a military complex containing a stockpile of old chemical weapons from Saddam Hussein's era.
The US State Department said that they believe jihadist fighters with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) will not be able to make any use of the material seized at the Al Muthanna complex as it is too old, contaminated and difficult to move.
"We do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value and it would be very difficult, if not impossible to safely move the materials," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told the Wall Street Journal.
Psaki however added that the US remained "concerned about the seizure of any military site by the Isis."
According to the UK Ministry of Defence, the Al Muthanna chemical complex "was the principal manufacturing plant for both chemical agents and munitions during Saddam Hussein's rule." 

The facility, located in the desert some 80km northwest of the Iraqi capital, was used in the 1980s to produce and store chemical weapons, reportedly including Sarin and Mustard Gas.
"Iraq used these weapons during the Iran - Iraq War (1980 to 1988) and against the Kurds in Halabja in 1988," the British MoD said in 2012, announcing it was to provide training to Iraqi personnel to dispose partially destroyed chemical munitions and agents stored there.
Stockpiles of weapons and the complex's ability to produce new material were severely hampered by the two Iraqi wars.
"The majority of the Al Muthanna complex was bombed during Desert Storm, completely incapacitating Iraq's chemical weapon production capabilities, however, large stockpiles of chemical weapons and bulk agent survived," a 2004 CIA report read.
Most of Iraq's chemical munitions were then destroyed and disposed under the supervision of the UN. Some partially destroyed contents were left over and sealed in two bunkers at Al Muthanna.
The complex has now fallen into the hands of Isis, which has conquered large swathes of Iraq in a lightning campaign backed by Baathists and other former loyalists to Hussein.

US Military officials said that they would have not left chemical material there after the 2011 pull out, if it represented a security threat.
"The only people who would likely be harmed by these chemical materials would be the people who tried to use or move them," a military official said.
Isis steams form Al-Qaeda in Iraq (Aqi) that was formed in 2003 shortly after the start of the second invasion of Iraq, which was originally launched to strip the regime of Hussein of its alleged stockpiles of chemical weapons.

Commentary: Questioning Sen. Reid’s support for gun rights

  Harry Reid's best Carnac the Magnificent impersonation; who hasn't ...

Senator Harry Reid is generally not popular in rural Nevada. However, he continues to hold his senatorial position simply because he continues to win elections. He has maintained some support in rural Nevada, because he has consistently vocalized his support of the Second Amendment. This has won him support from groups such as the NRA, law enforcement, hunter groups and similar organizations.
His victories have been slim, sometimes very slim. This “vocal” support for the Second Amendment has probably carried the day for Harry time and time again.
However, Harry’s “actual” support of the Second Amendment is questionable. I would submit to you, it is an outright lie, comparable to anything Barack Obama has brought forth to date.
You all might remember a very serious vote taken in the U.S. Senate last May. The Statement of Purpose from that bill read: “To Uphold Second Amendment Rights and Prevent the United States From Entering Into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The Senate passed the bill, but by the narrowest of margins, 53-46. The 46 Senators that voted against the above bill supporting the Second Amendment were all Democrats or Independents, and yes, Senator Reid was one of the 46.  

When Feds constantly lies to citizens and pay

But let’s take a little bit closer look at the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The UN Treaty is driven by the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs. It’s easy to follow UNODA on the Internet; it’s all there. Every conceivable point made by UNODA about firearms follows the theme that guns are harmful. They cause death, rape, pillage, enslavement: the list goes on and on.
Never once are firearms considered from the standpoint of enjoyment, hunting, or even such a basic concept as protection against the very things that UNODA considers as the necessary reasons for getting rid of firearms. That could become very important when governmental leadership becomes out of control, forcing such issues as martial law and state militias upon its citizens.
UNODA also makes the point that once a nation state approves the Arms Trade Treaty, they will abide by the treaty. The United States of America came within four votes of approving the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in 2013, and as such would have thrown away the Second Amendment of our Constitution.

Unfortunately, the problem of firearms control doesn’t entirely go away just because Harry didn’t get his way on the Arms Trade Treaty. The Security Council weighed in on firearms control during recent months. Some have speculated that the Security Council’s involvement came about because of USA’s failure to support the Arms Trade Treaty.
Regardless of the reason, the Security Council passed resolution 2117 on Sept. 26, 2013, fourteen to zip, with only Russia abstaining (and yes, the U.S. delegation was one of the 14). Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION, DISARMAMENT ---”
Do “you” still think Harry supports the Second Amendment? I don’t, and I think it’s about time Nevada demanded some answers from its senior senator. Kind of sounds like; “if you like your guns, you can keep your guns” Period.

‘Illegal Immigration’ Is A PC Term; This Is An Invasion

‘Illegal Immigration’ Is A PC Term; This Is An Invasion
It used to be that when illegal aliens made it across our border with Mexico, they’d flee as fast and as far as they could from any Border Patrol agent. Now, by the thousands, they’re eager to be caught. What on Earth has changed?
In the old days, those coming in illegally knew that they and their children would be deported just as quickly as they were caught. Today, thousands of women believe that if their children can get here, they’ll be allowed to stay, as part of some sort of “amnesty” deal. And they don’t just get to remain in this country; heck, they’ll even be provided with food, medical care and a place to stay.
Tens of thousands of people have believed these promises. As a result, we’re now seeing a flood of children pouring across the border, particularly in Texas. In 2011, roughly 7,000 unaccompanied minors were apprehended trying to enter this country. In 2012, that number doubled to 14,000. Last year, it climbed to 24,000.

Now, the numbers have skyrocketed. In just the first half of this year, the number of unaccompanied minors sneaking into the United States soared to more than 40,000. The Department of Homeland Security, which is responsible for protecting our borders, estimates that the number could pass 90,000 by the end of this year. And they say it could reach an astounding 145,000 next year.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that in only one week, from May 28 to June 4, in just the Rio Grande Valley, the Border Patrol caught more than 8,300 illegal aliens who had made it across the border. Again, that’s the count for just one week and in just one part of Texas.
This is an invasion, pure and simple. There is simply no other word for it. And unless it is stopped, the America we know and love will cease to exist.
The problem has gotten so bad that the Department of Homeland Security, which is responsible for processing deportations of illegal immigrants, can’t keep up. Because the detention facilities in South Texas are already filled to overflowing, some detainees are being sent to converted warehouses and military bases in Arizona and California.

Many others are simply being released and asked to come back in a few weeks. Can you imagine that? Rather than being put on a bus and taken out of this country, they are being driven to a bus stop, given a prepaid ticket to somewhere else and asked to come back when it’s more convenient. How many people do you think will obey that request?
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has written President Barack Obama, protesting the Administration’s policy of dumping many of these illegals on her State. The last I heard she had not been given the courtesy of a reply from the White House. And of course, the policy hasn’t been changed.
We’re told that most of these new illegal immigrants are not Mexicans. They’re coming from further south in Central America — particularly Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Those countries are 1,800 miles away from our southern border. So let me ask a couple of obvious questions: How on Earth are those thousands of women and children getting to our border? Does anyone seriously suggest they have walked all the way?
It’s hard to imagine even healthy young adults making that trek, across some very inhospitable terrain. But we’re supposed to believe that pregnant women and young children have done so? Impossible!
It’s equally ridiculous to suggest that these tens of thousands of impoverished aliens have paid thousands of dollars to smugglers to transport them. They don’t have the funds to do so.

So I repeat: How have they managed to get from Central America to our border with Mexico? Have people in their governments conspired to help them? Are some Mexican officials in league with them? It’s hard to believe this is all “just happening.” It sure smells like there’s a criminal conspiracy at work here.
And what is Mexico’s roll in all of this? How does it happen that tens of thousands of aliens somehow are able to travel 1,800 miles across their country without anyone being aware of it or doing anything about it? I smell a very big rat at work here.
We’ve been told that Vice President Joe Biden is flying to Guatemala later this week to meet with Guatemala President Otto Perez Molina and senior officials from Honduras and El Salvador to see what can be done to stem this criminal invasion. Apparently, Biden will bring with him some offers of “enhanced” support from the U.S. for the three countries, if they’ll help keep tens of thousands of their citizens from sneaking into our country.
Lots of luck with that, Joe.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is one of many Republican legislators who say that the blame for this crisis can be laid squarely at Obama’s feet. Sessions issued a statement June 3, stating:

The rising crisis at the border is the direct and predictable result of actions taken by President Obama. He and his Administration have announced to the world that they will not enforce America’s immigration laws, and have emphasized in particular that foreign youth will be exempted from these laws. The world has heard the President’s call, and illegal immigrants are pouring across the border in pursuit of his promised amnesty. President Obama is responsible for this calamity, and only by declaring to the world that our border is no longer open–and that the law will be restored–can this emergency be stopped.
Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be much chance of this happening.
Meanwhile, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi continues to languish in a Mexican jail, where he’s been held since March 31. That’s when he missed a very obscure street sign and accidentally drove into the country. Because he was carrying three guns (all of which were legally registered in the United States), he was arrested by Mexican police and tossed into the hoosegow, where he remains to this day.
Yet Mexican troops and police stray across our border all the time without anyone making a fuss about it.
Personal Liberty’s Sam Rolley reported:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske told Representative Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) in a letter that the “incursions” are “infrequent” — but the commissioner added that they happen frequently enough for the U.S. to have created special units to deal with the situation.
Kerlikowske said that a total of 525 Mexican law enforcement and military personnel have wandered into the United States in about 152 separate instances since 2004. In 81 instances, involving about 320 of the armed non-Americans, contact was made with U.S. Border agents. In 131 of those cases people were detained.
If there’s one good thing that’s come out of the present crisis, it’s that so-called immigration reform is stone-cold dead, at least for now. The defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Republican primary in Virginia last week added an important nail to that coffin.
There’s been a lot of discussion about why voters in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District gave the boot to Cantor, the guy who had represented the district for six terms, and instead made Dave Brat the victor. Certainly, Cantor’s reputation for being aloof, arrogant and out of touch didn’t help him.
Neither did his financial profligacy. One wag pointed out that the Cantor campaign spent more on steak dinners than Brat did in his entire campaign. The numbers are simply astounding: Cantor raised more than $5 million for his campaign; Brat raised less than $250,000.
Brat made Cantor’s support of the bank bailout bill a key part of his campaign

Fortune reported:
“All the investment banks up in New York and Washington or whatever, those guys should have gone to jail,” Brat told a May 7 gathering of the Mechanicsville Tea Party. “Instead of going to jail, where’d they go? They went onto Eric’s Rolodex. That’s where they all are, and they’re sending him big checks.”
That stung. But nothing hurt Cantor as much as the accusation that he was working with Obama to provide some sort of amnesty to illegal immigrants. Talk show hosts Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin hammered this point again and again. At the same time, the television screens were filled every night with pictures of the flood of people, many of them children, pouring across our border in Texas.
Cantor was so confidant of any easy victory that he didn’t even bother to come to his district on the day of the primary. Instead, he was meeting with potential contributors in Washington. When the votes were counted, Brat shocked all of the pundits by beating Cantor by an 11-point margin.
So we can say goodbye to Cantor and to the amnesty for illegals that Obama and his liberal cronies have been demanding. And we can say hello to increased demands that we must stop the illegal invasion of this country. Let’s hope Congress gets the message.
Until next time, keep some powder dry.
