esterday White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz redefined the Taliban as an “armed insurgency.” He just could not bring himself to say Islamic terrorists. This young fella was straining to remember his assigned talking points about the “Tal-ee-ban.” We reported yesterday how BBC Arabia and Al Jazeera now have a policy of not using the word “terrorists” — after all, we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, or offend the enemy.
Words are one thing, but actions are something else completely. A certain visit to the U.S. State Department must cause every American consternation — well, except for the Islamapologists.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.”
“One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page. That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.”
I just don’t have the words to convey my feelings about this. Well I do, but they’re not suitable in mixed company.
Just two days ago, we reported that Obama campaign operatives have been dispatched to Israel to work against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in the upcoming March elections.
And now our State Department is hosting members associated with the original Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The 1992 Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood written by Mohammed Akram outlining strategic objectives against America and North America is actually coming true before our very eyes.
In fact, I’d like to share this section from the Explanatory Memorandum verbatim:
Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miser- able house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no es- cape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.
How can it be that our own State Department is colluding with the enemy and especially after President al-Sisi’s incredible speech on New Years Day? We’ve written here often of the deliberate words and actions of Secretary of State John Kerry, certain Democrat Senators, and the Obama administration against the post-Mohammed Morsi Muslim Brotherhood government.
And we all know — well, those of us keeping tabs — that at his 2009 Cairo speech Obama requested Muslim Brotherhood members to be seated front and center.
Is there any challenge to my assertion that Obama is an Islamist sympathizer?
The Free Beacon writes, “The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor. Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.”
So let me understand this. A Muslim Brotherhood affiliated individual visiting our State Department praised their “steadfastness”? Heck, now I’m personally offended, because “Steadfast and Loyal” is the motto of the 4th US Infantry Division — but it seems to be descriptive of how the Muslim Brotherhood sees our State department.
“Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department. Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted. Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event. Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department is interested in maintaining a dialogue with the Brotherhood due to its continued role in the Egyptian political scene.”
“The State Department continues to speak with Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Brotherhood gestures in front of the State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the State Department.”
Embarrassment? No, it goes far beyond that, it is treasonous. It is aiding and abetting the enemy. It is providing material support and comfort to the enemy.
I invite any of you to read the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory-Memorandum and tell me if what I just stated was wrong. There is no excuse for what happened — just as when the Obama national security team met with an Islamic cleric who once put out a fatwa against American troops — but then again, the same cleric was praised by President Obama during a speech at the United Nations.
This should provide a clear window into the mentality of the Obama administration and why it has no compunction about meeting with or negotiating with Islamic terrorists.
So, what will it take America? What will make you finally realize we have a treasonous administration in charge of our country? What will it take for our new GOP Congress — House and Senate — to finally pass a resolution that censures President Barack Obama for his collusion and support to militant Islamic terrorism.
Yes, it is time to take that action — if the policies of President Obama and his administration to enable and support Islamic totalitarians and jihadists continues, something must be done. And there may be another action that should be taken if this clear and present danger within our halls persists.
Obama has threatened our Congress with a veto if they pass sanctions against Iran — how many extensions to the talks will have to occur? Obama refuses to define the enemy. As a matter of fact, he shows clear anger and disdain towards any perceived affront to Islam, i.e. “Let me be clear, ISIS is not Islamic” and “The future does not belong to those who defame the prophet of Islam”
Maybe that’s the reason Obama refused to attend the anti-Islamic terror rally in Paris? Perhaps he agreed with the actions taken against the staff of Charlie Hebdo? I would prefer his definitive explanation instead of allowing me and others to define his actions.
Ladies and gents, we have a serious problem. We have a president and an administration that is comfortable embracing our enemy — that is an issue. The policies and actions support that assertion. Go ahead, prove me wrong. And drones are not a strategy.
I leave you with this well-known interpretation of comments by Marcus Tullius Cicero from his Second Catiline Oration,
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
Remember these prescient words, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing.” And there are few greater evils than the Muslim Brotherhood.
Lawmakers in Oklahoma have proposed a law that would protect the right of people with unwanted same-sex attractions to obtain counseling and therapy.
WND reported California and New Jersey lawmakers and courts barred counselors from talking to minors about changing unwanted same-sex attractions, even if it is requested.
The court fight over the censorship statutes in the two states has been elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A petition explains: “If the client’s gender identity, mannerisms, or expressions differ from the client’s biological sex and the client’s feelings are unwanted – meaning [that] he does not want to transition from a male to a female identity – but instead wants to ‘change’ his female identity, mannerisms, or expression to conform to his biological sex, then [state law] forbids such counseling.
“Similarly, the statute permits the counseling of a client to affirm same-sex attractions, but prohibits counseling a minor to change unwanted SSA. Under no circumstances may a licensed counselor counsel a minor to change unwanted SSA. Nor may the counselor counsel a minor to change unwanted opposite sex mannerisms, expressions, or identity, even when the client wants to change them based on sincerely held religious beliefs,” it stated.
Attorneys with Liberty Counsel have fought the provisions in both California and New Jersey.
But now Oklahoma is moving in the opposite direction, with a proposal from state Rep. Sally Kern of District 84 to protect such counseling.
House Bill 1598 is “an act relating to conversion therapy; creating the Freedom to Obtain Conversion Therapy Act; defining certain terms; providing right to obtain certain counseling or conversion therapy’ preventing certain infringement by the state; providing certain rights of parents; permitting mental health provider to engage in sexual orientation change efforts with a child; providing for codification; and declaring an emergency.”
The proposal states: “The people of this state have the right to seek and obtain counseling or conversion therapy from a mental health provider in order to control or end any unwanted sexual attraction, and no state agency shall infringe upon that right. Parents may obtain such counseling or therapy for their children under eighteen (18) years of age without interference by the state.”
In an interview, Kern told WND the bill is preemptive, aiming to prevent activists from coming into the state to press for the kind of laws passed in California and New Jersey.
“The LGBTQ activists are really ramping up to make a full-fledged attack,” she said. “So our thinking is, what better state than Oklahoma to get this passed?”
She said supporters hope it will be a standard for other states.
Kern noted elected officials overwhelmingly are Republican, and she expects the bill to pass.
An important part of the effort, she said, will be providing lawmakers with the facts about the issue so they are not misled.
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld New Jersey’s censorship plan, Liberty Counsel noted, but its discussion created a split with another circuit on the appropriate level of scrutiny applied to regulators of such speech and also on the issue of whether counseling even constitutes speech.
The petition said that “without proper guidance from this court on the appropriate categorization of communications between counselor and client or doctor and patients, these professionals are constantly at risk of statutes, such as A3371, that seek to remove their communications from the requisite level of protection afforded by the First Amendment.”
Said Liberty Counsel in a statement: “The idea is not sound that all speech by licensed professionals can be silenced simply by virtue of the individual holding a professional license. Professional licensing statutes do not give the state veto power of disfavored viewpoints and speech of licensed professionals. The First Amendment simply does not tolerate such overreach.”
The petition continues: “A3371 represents a gross intrusion into the sacrosanct area of the relationship between counselors and clients and doctors and patients. This relationship, and the therapeutic alliance that develops between counselor and client and doctor and patient, is one of the oldest and most protected in the nation’s history.”
Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, said: “If counseling regarding change is banned today in New Jersey, tomorrow a different legislature with an opposite political agenda could ban affirmation and allow only counsel regarding change. The state thwarts self-determination when it interferes with the counselor-client or doctor-patient relationship.”
Liberty Counsel explained: “SOCE counseling has been singled out for prohibition merely because the state is opposed to and disagrees with the goal of some clients who want to change or eliminate their unwanted SSA and to conform their identity, behaviors, and attractions to their own self-perception or conform them to their sincerely held religious beliefs.”
The lower courts ruled that the state’s restrictions on counselors’ speech “does not directly or indirectly implicate, regulate, or target speech on its face.”
The Supreme Court needs to address the issue because, among other reasons, the circuit appellate courts have issued rulings that disagree, LC said.
WND reported the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California said the counseling is “conduct” and not speech.
In the New Jersey dispute, Liberty Counsel represents two licensed mental health professionals, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality and the American Association of Christian Counselors.
When the 9th Circuit released its opinion in the California case, there was a stinging rebuke in the dissent.
“May California remove from the First Amendment’s ambit the speech of certain professionals when the state disfavors its content or its purpose? – The Supreme Court has definitely and unquestionably said ‘No.’ It is no longer within our discretion to disagree,” said the minority opinion from Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain.
He was joined by two other judges in the dissent, which said, “Legislatures cannot nullify the First Amendment’s protections for speech by playing this labeling game.”
“Indeed,” he said, “authoritative precedents have established that neither professional regulations generally, nor even a more limited subclass of rules, remain categorically outside of the First Amendment’s reach.”
Wrote O’Scannlain: “The panel cites no case holding that speech, uttered by professionals to their clients, does not actually constitute ‘speech’ for purposes of the First Amendment. And that should not surprise us – for the Supreme Court has not recognized such a category. … The Supreme Court has chastened us lower courts for creating, out of whole cloth, new categories of speech to which the First Amendment does not apply. But, that is exactly what the panel’s opinion accomplishes in this case.”

Judge Jeanine for POTUS. Islam needs to be outlawed in the U.S.
What do you think ?
Attnd. Steve M ; Steven Gronka ? Some body interested ?
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” Revelation 9:20,21 (KJV)
A Protestant pastor in Bremen, Germany preached that Christ is the only way to heaven, and now he is the talk of the town. The people are not praising him — Pastor Olaf Latzel is being accused of disparaging other religions, and the prosecuting attorney of Bremen is considering filing charges against him. Pastor Latzel’s sermon was delivered to his congregation on January 18, 2015.
From the Bremem Newspaper Die Welt:
“Bremen senior theologian whitefish Brahms described the sermon Latzels in part as “intellectual arson”. It is liable to make violence against foreigners, other faiths or asylum seekers feed. Latzel himself defended his sermon. The criticism was based on shortened and taken out of context quotes, he said on Radio Bremen. It is only against the mixing of Christianity with other religions.”
Latzel is against the preaching of Chrislam. Is it not clear that the only religion that answers others with “violence” is Islam? Much of political correctness stems from pure fear of violent retaliation from Islamic terrorists.
Pastor Latzel said in his sermon that while Muslims who are citizens of Germany do belong to Germany, Islam does not. The prosecutor said that this talk is disrespectful to Muslim brothers and sisters. He also charged Latzel with “pure fundamentalism.” Pastor Latzel made it clear that he is against the mixing of Christianity with other religions.
The problem we are now facing stems from the belief that there is no absolute truth. This philosophy that everything is relative, depending upon the person and the circumstances, flies in the face of Christianity, where we understand that absolute Truth comes from and depends upon God and His Holy Word.
The Church worldwide is facing an angry unbelieving world, wanting to force us to accept gay marriage as normal. As followers of Jesus Christ, our measuring stick for truth is His Word. It won’t be long before many of us are incarcerated and our churches closed, because those in authority claim that we are not tolerant of others.
The persecution of the pastor in Germany is actually more extreme, because he has caused a fire storm by proclaiming Christianity as set apart from other religions. The government in Germany does not approve of Christians saying there is only one way to heaven, and that is through the Lord Jesus Christ.
They are obviously pushing for a Universal church, where everyone is included, and no one is told that their beliefs are wrong. I can’t help but notice the irony here — that a Christian pastor’s words being scrutinized and him reprimanded, but we must tread oh so lightly with the Muslims, for fear that we may be blown up!
Pastor Olaf Latzel knows that Allah and the God of the Bible are not the same God. There is much confusion coming out of the RCC and from pastors like Rick Warren and others, claiming that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. One must only look at the Lord Jesus Christ in the Scriptures and compare Him to the one called “Isa” in the Qur’an, to clearly see that Allah and our God are completely different.
Jesus Christ is God incarnate. He is also the Son of God. He was crucified on a Cross and died for the sins of the whole world — that whosoever believes in Him would have eternal life. The Qur’an states that Isa never claimed to be God, and that he was not crucified. The Qur’an goes on to say that “God has no son.” Could it be any clearer that Muslims and Christians do NOT worship the same God? I firmly believe that Allah is Satan. One of the names for Allah is “The great deceiver.” Satan is the one propagating these lies in order to establish his One World religion.
The United Religions Initiative Project
There is an organization that we are hearing more and more about, called the United Religions Initiative. Pope Francis has close ties to many members and especially to its founder, William E. Swing, a former bishop of the Episcopal Church in San Francisco. When Pope Francis was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he invited Mr. Swing to celebrate the United Religions Initiative’s 10th anniversary in Latin America at his Cathedral.
“The URI is a United Nations project. It was heralded in June 1995 by Bishop Swing at the occult, earth-worshipping interfaith service he was invited to conduct for the UN, honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. Attending the service in San Francisco’s Episcopal Grace Cathedral were political luminaries and representatives of all religions, including Britain’s Princess Margaret, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Polish President Lech Walesa, UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Archbishop Renato Martino (Vatican nuncio to the UN), and Archbishop John Quinn of San Francisco.
The URI is meant to be for religions what the UN is for nations. Its purpose is to be the world religious authority, “a UN for religion” in order to foster peace. Delegates to its charter-writing summit in 1997 considered they had given birth to a “movement as well as a spiritual institution”. “Tell the people that there is a United Religions,” said Swing. It will shine “the light of the world’s spiritual traditions [paganism and occultism included] into a world desperately in need of light.” It aims to solve issues of environment, population, poverty and disease whilst building religious unity.”  – source
Taken from an “interfaith” website about Pope Francis:
“Pope Francis’s openness to other faiths is part of a trend at the Vatican. A post today on the Wild Hunt noted that on a recent trip to Brazil, Pope Francis met with representatives of Candomble. The post asked:
If the Pope embraces reconciliation with Candomblé, with real, human, interface between leaders, why shouldn’t Catholics also embrace practitioners of Voodoo? Or indigenous African religions? Or modern Paganism, for that matter? Indeed, the Pope’s new attitude is needed more now than ever before. We live in a world where human beings, fueled by religious beliefs, are persecuting and killing one another in increasingly disturbing incidents. What better time for a Pope to emphatically embrace an interfaith mission? A mission that had been blunted during the Papacy of Benedict, but now, hopefully, will bear new fruit.”  – source
Brethren, the political correctness which we see permeating every area of life in America, is sweeping Europe as well. Don’t think for a moment that this event happening in Bremem, Germany will not happen in America, and soon in every country of the world.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV)
I will gladly go to jail if asked to renounce my belief in this verse of Scripture.

UNITED NATIONS – Giving President Obama fast-track authority to conclude an international trade agreement is like playing Russian roulette with six bullets in the chamber, says one of America’s leading gun rights organizations.
Gun Owners of America is blasting a congressional proposal that empowers Obama to unilaterally negotiate international agreements as “a ‘bait and switch’ scheme that could seriously impact the Second Amendment.”
House and Senate committees are currently preparing to hand Obama so-called “fast-track” trade promotion authority. It would enable the president to unilaterally negotiate the TransPacific Partnership, a trade and global governance agreement with the U.S. and 11 other nations bordering the Pacific Ocean.
Under fast-track rules, Congress would not be able to amend or even vet the completed agreement. It could only approve everything that Obama has included, including anything tucked away in the 99th page that no one really wants to talk about, or kill it.
Gun Owners of America warns fast track “delegates to Barack Obama the legislative authority to do anything he wants – absolutely anything – so long as he includes it in a ‘trade agreement.’”
Second Amendment defenders worry, for example, anti-gun measures such as gun or ammunition import bans could be relegated to the bowels of the so-called “trade agreement.” They say Congress would be unable to stop it “when every Establishment interest in Washington starts pushing Congress to immediately approve this ‘up-or-down’ deal.”
They point to the experience with the recently approved trillion-dollar “Cromnibus” spending bill, which included the largest funding increase in history for the federal gun database, empowered states to impose gun bans based on doctor’s orders and increased the budget for the ATF.
Fast track “is the same dynamic as the Cromnibus, and if we hadn’t just gone through that we wouldn’t see what will happen if they give him fast track,” Michael Hammond, legislative counsel with Gun Owners of America, told WND.
“Republicans whine about Obama usurping legislative authority, so why in heaven’s name are they thinking of giving him unlimited legislative authority to do anything he can put into a trade agreement?” Hammond asked
Supporters of fast track, including Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, say it allows Congress to set goals for an agreement the Obama administration will negotiate.
But Hammond points out the TransPacific Partnership agreement “has already largely been negotiated and is being kept secret only for the sole purpose of getting us to give it a rubber stamp.”
“What kind of idiot would bite on that deal?”
The Obama administration has been negotiating the TransPacific Partnership without congressional input for the past six years and acknowledges the deal is near completion.
“I don’t think it’s wise to allow Obama to promulgate any law he wants as long as he succeeds in sticking it in this agreement and then gets Congress’ assent on an up or down vote without any possibility for amendment,” Hammond said.
“It’s playing Russian Roulette with a gun with six bullets in the chamber,” he said.
Gun Owners of America is urging everyone to contact their senators and representative and ask them to oppose giving fast-track authority to Barack Obama.
WND has reported extensively on the TPP, including when Obama traveled to Asia to promote it last year.
TPP has been described as the largest-ever economic treaty, encompassing 12 participating nations representing more than 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product. It’s the frontrunner to the equally under-the-radar Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TIPP, between the U.S. and the European Union.
WND reported that the White House, without much fanfare, wrapped Mexico and Canada into the TPP negotiations as a continuation of an effort regarded by critics as a move toward a European Union-style integration of North America.
