Navajo Indian And Democratic Senator Leaves To Join GOP
by DEREK HUNTER
Arizona Democratic State Senator Carlyle Begay announced Monday he is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a Republican. Senator Begay is a Navajo Indian and represents an area of Arizona which encompasses the Navajo and Hopi reservations.
Begay told the Arizona Republican, “the Republican Party better reflects the values of self-determination and self-empowerment that he holds and wants to emphasize to his district.”
To announce his decision, Begay released a two-minute video entitled “Change Must Happen Now” explaining his reasoning. Citing the failing education system, high dropout rate, crumbling infrastructure and unemployment rates “as high as 80 percent” in parts of his district, Begay told constituents he’s found it is the Republican Party who has been willing to work with him to address these issues.
The charismatic Senator acknowledged switching parties will not be a popular decision with some of those he represents but, he says, “My hope is to follow the direction of my ancestors and embrace progress by helping the Republican Party as they build a bridge connecting those who need and want a chance with those who can provide that chance.”
“With an open mind and heart,” Begay concluded, “I clearly see the Republican Party as a party of progress, the party of opportunity, and moving forward — my party.”
Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey greeted the news gleefully. “I’m proud to welcome Senator Begay to the Republican Party. Legislative District 7 is well served by Senator Begay’s commitment to individual liberty, fiscal responsibility and personal empowerment. His service to his constituents is unwavering, and I look forward to our continued work together,” he said in a statement.
Another democrat is moving towards economic freedom, now let's hope the GOP start moving towards more social freedoms.
Conservative Tribune recently revealed that some officials in President Barack Obama’s administration who work at United States Central Command were under investigation for having allegedly altered intelligence reports “to give a more positive picture of the anti-ISIS campaign.”
According to The Weekly Standard columnist Stephen F. Hayes, however, the scandal runs much, much deeper than this and in fact traces back to deceased 9/11 mastermind, Osama bin Laden.
After the raid on bin Laden’s compound in May of 2011, CIA intelligence officers collected more than a million documents from the dead terrorist’s home. But though four long years have passed since that eventful day, only 150 or so of the documents have since been declassified and released.
Furthermore, attempts by numerous officials from CENTCOM and the Defense Intelligence Agency to examine the documents have been blocked time and time again by senior Obama officials.
“We were certainly blocked from seeing all the documents, and we were given limited time and resources to exploit the ones we had,” Michael Pregent, a DIA analyst on the CENTCOM team, reportedly said.
Hayes believes he knows the reason behind this intransigence.
“Taken together, this new primary-source intelligence undercut happy-talk from the White House about progress in defeating jihadist terror,” Hayes explained. “Al Qaeda wasn’t dying; it was growing. The Afghan Taliban wasn’t moderating; its leaders were as close to al Qaeda as ever.”
The documents also allegedly prove that the same regime with which Obama just made a horrible nuclear deal“had provided safe haven for al Qaeda leaders and their families and had facilitated al Qaeda attacks on the interests of the United States and its allies.”
Simply put, the documents put the final nail in the coffin of Obama’s lackluster and utterly devastating foreign-policy decisions. The individual who benefits the most from them remaining classified is probably President Barack Obama himself.
Hayes’ thesis therefore is that the investigation into the mishandling of intelligence shouldn’t just be limited to CENTCOM; it should include the White House.
“Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House; the president sets the priorities and he’s the number one customer,” Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told Hayes.
And, contrary to the what is commonly believed… the customer is NOT always right.
The disciples had been with Jesus. He was the subject of their confession-"They [spoke of Him with] boldness." The word "boldness" suggests the idea of fluency and freedom of speech. Their confession was fearless.
When we read the speech of Peter, we must remember to whom it was spoken, and when we do remember that, it becomes one of the world’s greatest demonstrations of courage. It was spoken to an audience of the wealthiest, the most intellectual and the most powerful in the land, and yet Peter, the Galilean fisherman, stands before them rather as their judge than as their victim. But further, this was the very crowd which had condemned Jesus to death.
Peter knew it, and he knew that at this moment he was taking his life in his hands. There are two kinds of courage. There is the reckless courage which goes on scarcely aware of the dangers it is facing. There is the far higher, cool, calculated courage which knows the peril in which it stands and which will not be daunted.
It was the second courage that Peter demonstrated to men. When Achilles, the great warrior of the Greeks, was told that if he went to battle he would surely die, he answered in the immortal sentence, "Nevertheless, I am going on." Peter, in that moment, knew the peril in which he stood; nevertheless, he, too, was for going on. (Dr. William Barclay)

Tomorrow: Revival - Part 8E - The Secret of Spreading Revival
Let's be honest here, for many of us, we have no problem at all believing that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim at heart, despite his claim to be a Christian. As far as I can tell from his 2004 interview, he doesn't have a clue about Christian doctrine. At the closing of the G20 Summit, Obama identified himself as part of the Muslim community, and it seems that the news reporters listening didn't even pick up on it!
"I think on the one hand non-Muslims cannot stereotype," he said. "But I also think that the Muslim community has to think about how we make sure children are not being infected with this twisted notion that somehow they can kill innocent people and that somehow that is justified."
He included himself in the "we" expressed here while referencing Muslims versus non-Muslims. Hussein Obama did warn people early on.
Obama was raised as a Muslim. We know this from his early school records. We also know that as an adult, he has dressed in Muslim garb and participated in Muslim rituals.
He slipped up in 2008 during an interview and declared his Muslim faith and had to be corrected by the interviewer George Stephanopoulos.
Then, there are all these little telltale statements that just won't go away.
The Audacity of Hope:
In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
