The bill introduced by Rep. Michelle Bachmann, also known as the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014, will “impose sanctions against persons who knowingly provide material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents, and for other purposes.”
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. The Muslim Brotherhood main branch, based in Egypt, has financed terrorist attacks worldwide that have killed Americans and others. The Brotherhood attacks Christians, women, and other religious minorities, in the name of Allah to fulfill al-Banna’s vision of “fighting the unbelievers…to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam.” The methods al-Banna suggested to advance jihad included “beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their places of worship, and smashing their idols.” Al-Banna also said “it is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated” and to “impose its law on nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

I just received a notice from WND where they cite a newspaper article quoting a terrorist who is behind the rocket attacks on Israel.
When the terrorist was asked why they couldn't aim their rockets better, the terrorist said, "Their God is re-directing our rockets".
Praise God. He said He would protect Israel. God doesn't lie. Those terrorists actually acknowledge "Their God". You'd think they would actually turn to this powerful God. I hope they do!
During a fundraiser in Seattle this week, President Barack Obama called for a “new order” based around a collectivized system in order to quell people’s concerns about geopolitical strife and the economy.
“People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”
“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”
In a geopolitical context, Obama’s call for a “new order” really doesn’t sound any different from the old unipolar world order that the United States has represented since the end of the Cold War, which is now being challenged by the rise of the BRICS countries.
Developments over the course of the past year have made it clear that the United States no longer considers Russia to be part of this “new order” as a result of its resistance to NATO encirclement.
In terms of the economy, Obama’s insistence on “economies that work for all people” based on “common humanity” is in direct contradiction to his actual policies, which have almost exclusively served to help Wall Street fat cats while the average American sees their household income decline year after year when adjusted for inflation.
This is by no means the first time that Obama has called for a new world order.
During a 2010 West Point speech, the President encouraged the development of a new “international order” to help secure America’s interests.
Obama also urged Europeans and Americans to embrace the idea of “global citizenship” during a 2012 Berlin speech.
Vice-President Joe Biden has also repeatedly called for a “new world order.”
People sometimes accuse libertarians of being impractical. That befuddles me because libertarianism is the only practical philosophy there is. Why is that? Because libertarianism works. The only philosophies don’t.
Consider immigration. People say: “You libertarians are so impractical with your call for open borders.”
Yet, what could be more practical than a policy that brings about peace, prosperity, and harmony?
Look at what statism has done in the area of immigration. We have endless cycle of crises and reforms, accompanied by paroxysms of anger, frustration, and exasperation. With the possible exception of the drug war, foreign policy, public schooling, and healthcare, you couldn’t find a more dysfunctional program than immigration controls.
Let’s also not forget the police-state environment along the border, including the Berlin Fence and those Soviet-style domestic checkpoints where Stasi-like guards demand to see your papers and get horribly angry when you refuse to answer their questions.
That’s an aberrant system. How can anyone say otherwise?
The results of immigration controls shouldn’t surprise anyone. After all, immigration controls are nothing more than a variation of socialist central planning. Wouldn’t we expect the consequences of socialism here to be just as perverse as they are in the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, and China?
Consider the libertarian idea of open borders. No more immigration crises, deaths, human smuggling, and police state along the border. Just a normal flow of people back and forth across the border.
What’s more practical than a philosophy that works? What’s more impractical than a philosophy that doesn’t?
Look at the drug war. A perverse and dysfunctional system if there ever was one. Decades of violence, death, destruction, and corruption, without any noticeable effect on the supply of or demand for drugs. And notice something important: the more they crack down, the worse the problem gets.
Statists remain deeply wedded to the drug war, notwithstanding its decades of manifest failure and destructiveness. How practical is that? Can you think of anything more impractical than doubling down on a failed and destructive policy, especially in the hope of achieving a different result?
Consider the libertarian position: End the drug war by repealing all laws that criminalize the use, possession, distribution, or sale of drugs — all drugs, not just marijuana. What would that do? It would bring an immediate end to the drug gangs, drug lords, gang wars, and governmental corruption along with all the police-state practices and violations of liberty and privacy that have accompanied the drug war.
Pray tell: What could be more practical than that? Again, what could be more practical than a philosophy that works, especially compared to one that doesn’t work, hasn’t worked, and will never work?
Consider healthcare. Conservative statists spend their time exclaiming against Obamacare, while liberal statists spend their time defending it. What could be more impractical than those two positions? What good would it do to repeal Obamacare? Wasn’t there a huge healthcare crisis that Obamacare was intended to address? What good will it do to maintain Obamacare? Isn’t it just another socialist reform measure that is certain to provide more healthcare crises down the road?
In other words, both conservatives and liberals are just wasting their time, money, and energy. Their respective hopes and dreams regarding healthcare will continue to provide nothing but crises.
The libertarian position? Repeal Medicare, Medicaid, occupational licensure, and healthcare and insurance regulation. A total separation of healthcare and the state. What could be more practical than that, especially given we would once again be relying on the free market to deliver healthcare. Everyone knows — or should know — that the free market delivers the best of everything, especially compared to socialistic plans like Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare.
Just think: Under libertarianism, no more healthcare crises, and everyone receiving reasonably priced, high-quality healthcare from doctors and others who, once again, love what they do in life. What could be more practical than that?
Foreign interventionism? Nothing but violence, death destruction, horrific consequences, and foreign anger and hatred toward the United States under the statist philosophy.
World War I didn’t make the world safe for democracy or end all wars. It led to World War II, the war that delivered Eastern Europe and East Germany to the Soviet communists, which were then made the target of a 45-year Cold War along with the establishment of the national-security state, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, Persian Gulf War, and then came the war on terrorism, the debacles in Iraq and Afghanistan, torture, rendition, indefinite detention, militarism, and the ever-growing assaults on the civil liberties and privacy of the American people.
What could be more dysfunctional and impractical than all that? Compare that to libertarianism, which would dismantle the warfare state, including the empire of foreign and domestic military bases, the Cold War national-security state apparatus, the CIA, the NSA, and the entire military-industrial complex—and abolish the taxes that fund them.
What would that accomplish? Only a peaceful, prosperous, and harmonious society, that’s all. What could be more practical than that?
Public schooling? By the time kids reach 18 years of age, they have had the love of learning smashed out of them through a rigid system of regimentation, conformity, deference to authority, and obedience. Of course, this is where people receive their indoctrination — mental training from the state to ensure that people remain faithful, loyal, and obedient drones of the system and lack the mental capability of challenging it at a fundamental level.
Everyone, even the most stalwart defenders of public schooling, acknowledge what a fiasco the system has been. Why, even the president of the United States refuses to send his children into the public schooling system. That’s because he loves his children and, therefore, refuses to hand them over to the state’s “educational” system.
What could be more impractical than a system that destroys or damages people’s minds in their formative years?
Libertarians? We say: Separate school and state. Get rid of all state involvement in education. Rely totally on the free market for education. What could be more practical than a free-market educational system, one in which people love to learn?
The good news is that more and more people, especially young people, are figuring all this out and self-describing as libertarians. That includes people from both the left and the right. You see this playing out especially in the drug war, where countless people are popping up everywhere calling for an end to the drug war.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why anyone would embrace a philosophy and policies that are failed and have no chance of success. That sure seems impractical to me.
On the other hand, I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t embrace libertarianism, especially given the fact that it works. Embracing a philosophy that works seems to me to be infinitely practical.
Who Benefits the Most From the Illegal Immigration of Guatemalan’s?
Will the President of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina benefit? Will the CEO and main shareholder of Fresh Del Monte Produce, Inc, Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh benefit? Will the Rothschild's who appear to hold shares in every major Fortune 500 company and their corporate veils like Blackrock Institutional Trust Company benefit? Will the Catholics, Mormons and other churches benefit? Only one thing is for darn sure, it will not be the United States of America who will benefit.
Let’s begin with President Molina who studied at the Inter-American Defense College in Washington D.C. and during his 30 year military career achieved the rank of General. His goal is to achieve higher security in Guatemala and to eradicate hunger under his Zero Hunger Pact. The Clinton Global Initiative, always ready with its hand out when there is "crisis" hand-out money available, helped bring together a partnership to support Molina’s Zero Hunger Plan. Also the USDA has been involved in Feed the Future, the "U.S. Government's Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative."
With all this international attention and funding, why then are nearly one-half of Guatemalan children under the age of five still chronically malnourished, one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world? Do you think that the emigration of his people to the USA matters to President Molina, knowing that his primary source of foreign income, equivalent to nearly TWO-FIFTHS of exports or ONE-TENTH of the national GDP comes from Guatemalan relatives living in the USA, sending money back to their relatives residing in Guatemala?
What does Fresh Del Monte Produce have to do with all of this? At the height of its power, the United Fruit Company (now known as Fresh Del Monte Produce) owned a staggering 42% of the entire country of Guatemala and paid not one cent in tax on it. The same company owned the railways, the telephone system, the ports and a large fleet of ships built by some of the finest shipyards in the world. In addition to the creme de la creme of Boston society and Rockefeller banking interests, there were other very important people associated with the company; for example, there was Nelson Rockefeller's former assistant at the State Department, John Moors Cabot (part of the Cabot-Lodge nexus), who owned a large block of stock in United Fruit (he later wrangled for himself a convenient ambassadorship to Guatemala); then there was John's brother, Thomas C. Cabot, Jr., who briefly served as president of United Fruit; there was also John J. McCloy, later closely associated with the CIA and the World Bank; there was also John Foster Dulles, head of the Rockefeller Foundation and later head of the U.S. State Department, and his brother Allen, who became CIA Chief under President Eisenhower - and on and on ad infinitum. It was a Who's Who of some of this nation's wealthiest families - pretty much the same ivy league crowd who later took over the CIA and the State Department after World War II.
In 1944 the people of Guatemala overthrew the fascist right-wing dictator then in power, Jorge Ubico and Guatemala held its first true election in history. They elected Dr. Juan Arevalo Bermej to the presidency. A new constitution was drawn up based on the U.S.Constitution. At the time, only 10% of the land was available for use by the natives. Arevalo was succeeded in another free election by Jacobo Arbenz who continued the reform process and proposed to redistribute some of the unused land and make it available to farm. This is when the elite corporate globalists cried foul and began a propaganda campaign that included Ed Whitman, United Fruit’s top public relations officer and the husband of Ann Whitman, President Eisenhower’s private secretary. (Ed Whitman produced a film, “Why the Kremlin Hates Bananas) Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward L. Bernays also conducted psychological warfare and embarked on a campaign that included aggressive propaganda tactics. Also, a study group led by Adolf Berle, a businessman inexorably linked to Rockefeller interests in Latin America also served on the board of the Society for the investigation of Human Ecology, a foundation the CIA created as a cover for MK- Ultra, a code name for covert methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse. It was a successful Coup Made in America! (Video)
United Fruit later changed its name and ownership several times until it eventually became known as Fresh Del Monte Produce. Fresh Del Monte was spun off to Mexican owners who faltered and then it fell into the hands of the Mexican government. In 1996 Fresh Del Monte was purchased by a Palestinian who had made a fortune importing bananas to the Middle East. The company is incorporated in the Cayman Islands a Caribbean tax haven for the last reported Fresh Del Monte profits of $145 million dollars. Abu-Ghazaleh owns a majority of the stock in the company and he is listed as one of the top 500 most powerful Arabs in the world, and also serves as a Director of Jordan Kuwait Bank. After Abu-Ghazaleh bought the company, the minority shareholders sued him claiming that he had purchased the company for half its price by bribing a Mexican government official. The payment was proven, but the lawsuit failed. Could that be because Marvin Bush, the brother of President Bush, joined the Board of Directors of Fresh Del Monte in 1998 and served on the board’s critically important audit and compensation committees until 2002.(some say even longer than that)
Currently on the Board of Directors of Fresh Del Monte is John H Dalton who interestingly also serves as the President of the Housing Policy Group of the Financial Services Roundtable in Washington, D.C., an invitation only financial services lobbying and advocacy organization located in Washington D.C. that donates heavily to both Republicans and Democrats. What is his current position at Fresh Del Monte? He is a member of the Audit and Compensation Committee’s!
Fresh Del Monte Produce’s partners include Feeding America which provides food assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States. So, while the USDA is busy handing out food to the starving Guatemalans with its Feed the Future program, Fresh Del Monte whose plantation workers all over Central America are malnourished, is feeding poor Americans! Make sense?
Corporate America, the State Department and the CIA all seem to be implicated in the Guatemala story, but there is also a fourth member of the team: the American Evangelical community. History demonstrates that the CIA used Protestant missionaries to great effect in the Philippines. They had been "employed" in that country in a CIA campaign against the Huks, along with an airborne leaflet program. The CIA has enlisted the support of Christian missionaries over and over again...so why should Guatemala be any different? There have been inferences of leaflets instructing Guatemalans how to emigrate to the United States and what their rights are once there. Are CIA operatives involved…or their Christian pawns?
The current population of the Republic of Guatemala is estimated to be about 15.44 million and their major religion is Roman Catholicism. The next largest religion is Protestantism and Guatemalans are among a growing number of Latin Americans who have turned to Mormonism in the last few years. The Mormon emphasis on traditional family values is an appealing characteristic as well as the idea of being part of a modern day, global organization. The most recent Quetzaltenango Guatemala MormonTemple sits on 6.47 acres and totals 21,085 square feet. Are the baptismal "Waters of Mormon" located on Atitlan Lake in Guatemala? Does Glenn Beck know this? Are religious groups vying for the attention of Guatemalans and are they grandstanding to gain more followers?
In summation, President Molina stands to benefit from the emigration of his poorest. Abu-Ghazaleh will benefit from the cheap and ready labor for his plants in the USA, while the global elite look forward to benefit from increased profits at Del Monte Fresh Produce. The churches will be “used” to advance the New World Order as they compete to become the One World religion. The Clintons will continue to spew their humanitarian mockery while promoting the Rockefeller Foundation on their web site, including a commitment by the Rockefeller Foundation to invest $100 million dollars in creating 100 “Resilient Cities” with 100 Chief Resilience Officers to oversee them. This Youtube which can be found on the Clinton Global Initiative site is a must watch!
There are over 15 million people in the Republic of Guatemala. There are almost 8 million people in Honduras. If the Rockefeller’s and the Clintons and the Bush’s and the Obama’s were really concerned....why not set up a $23 Million dollar foundation that would give a one time quarter million dollars to each and every resident in the Republics of Guatemala and Honduras and use the leftover funds to help build schools, hospitals and infrastructure, using local labor? Then, shore up our American borders with high tech equipment, fencing and added Border Patrol agents using all the money we are currently sending overseas to CIA Muslim operatives. Why not suggest to Obama now that Ramadan is over, instead of celebrating by going on his mulit-million dollar, 16 day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, that we use the multi-million dollar taxpayer paid vacation money to fund this innovative plan and at the same time solve both our immigration AND deportation problems! But all dreaming aside, a solution is not the issue here. Who benefits the most from illegal immigration? The Large Families That Rule the World.
This immigration problem is not about solutions, it is about creating a crisis and about the fundamental transformation of America.

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.
In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.
On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.
REMEMBER in NOVEMBER!

The anti-gun senators are all Democrats or so-called Independents. Meet all 46! Write Down their names, and Share them with everyone you know.
Even before the recent Israeli ground and air operations in Gaza, the BDS movement - that would stand for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - was gaining traction... not just in France, or Germany, or Oman: right here in America.
BDS is being sold - as everything evil and stupid is being sold these days - as a moral good. The argument goes like this: Israel, a nation formed in response to the cold, concrete reality of extermination, has let its economic and military power go to its head. They, now, are the oppressors; they now are Goliath in a main battle tank facing a brave Palestinian David with a rock in his hand; they now are the racists. They now - Israel - are the Nazis.
Here is Israel at the time of its formation by the United Nations in 1948. Actually, you can't see it on this map because it's so small - smaller than the state of New Jersey.
On that same year, the Arab nations surrounding the new country attacked what was then mostly small farming communities and tried to drive the Jews into the sea.
But The Israelis won.
The Arabs tried it again in 1967. The Jews beat them again. Then, in 1973, the Arabs tried again, launching a sneak attack on the holiest Jewish holiday - and the Jews won again.
Israel's territorial gains did not come from Israel attacking the Arabs. They came from Israel being attacked by the Arabs.
And Israel has always tried to give the land back in exchange for peace, as it did when it voluntarily returned the Sinai Peninsula - which is bigger than Israel itself - back to the Egyptians who had tried to attack them from the Sinai, and likewise, they gave the Gaza Strip back to the Palestinians who had attacked them - from the Gaza strip.
Since then, thousands - thousands! -- of rockets and mortars have been fired into Israel from schoolyards and orphanages and hospitals in -- Gaza.
How many rockets and mortars would you allow to fall on your house by neighbors that have been swearing to kill you for 65 years? How many times will someone keep hitting you before you hit back?
The Palestinians daily call for the Jews to be driven into the sea. The Jews have one of the most sophisticated militaries in the world. They could drive the Palestinians into the sea any time they wanted to. They don't.
The instant that Hamas or Hezbollah get their hands on a nuclear weapon, they will do with it what they do every day with their rocks and mortars and missiles. They will use it. On Israel. The Israelis have an estimated 500 nuclear weapons and could destroy the Arabs any time they chose. They don't.
Those are not Nazis. Those are moral, civilized people.
Israel is an island of civilization in a sea of barbarity, and that is why it is being targeted. Uncomfortable with those words, "civilization" and "barbarity?" Well, in Israel women can do whatever they please - including leading the state of Israel. In the surrounding Arab nations women are treated as chattel. They're just property: useful for creating sons and carrying things.
In Israel, homosexuals are tolerated and celebrated as individuals - why, just as if they were real people! In the surrounding Muslim nations they are hung from construction cranes in public squares. In Israel, scientists at the University of Haifa are studying In-homogeneous tachyon dynamics. The latest scientific invention in the Arab world is a buzzer that goes off when a Muslim falls asleep against his prayer rug.
Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions was used, in the main successfully, against racist South Africa. Racist South Africa used brutal force to suppress people along racial lines.
Israel, on the other hand, is the only nation in the entire Middle East where Arabs have a free and fair vote. Israel allows Israelis of any ethnicity to be elected to the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament - including Arabs. So: If you're in favor of equal rights for women, legal protections for homosexuals, advances in science, the arts and medicine, and political access and personal rights guaranteed by law -- you definitely should support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - for every nation in the region EXCEPT Israel.
Finally, I'll just say this - because this is really what drives this whole thing. It is absolutely true that criticizing the actions of the State of Israel is not in itself anti-Semitism. Israel is as subject to criticism and condemnation as any other nation on earth.
But you cannot understand Israel's actions without understanding the pervasive, unrelenting, hate that surrounds that outpost of civilization. From Hezbollah rockets made in Iran, to BDS sanctions made in Berkeley and Santa Monica, the attacks on this country and its people cannot be understood without getting to the bedrock essence of the nasty, petty, small and mean-spirited emotion that drives anti-Semitism.
And that emotion is Envy.
Genesis, Chapter 26, verses 12 through 16:
And Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. The LORD blessed him, and the man became rich, and gained more and more until he became very wealthy. He had possessions of flocks and herds and many servants, so that the Philistines envied him. (Now the Philistines had stopped and filled with earth all the wells that his father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father.) And Aby melech said to Isaac, "Go away from us, for you are much mightier than we."
That was thousands of years before there was a religion called Islam. And when the Israelis, as a gesture of peace and goodwill, turned over the Gaza Strip in 2005 the first thing these modern-day philistines did was smash the windows of the greenhouses that had been handed to them by other people's labor. Once again, they filled wells in the desert with sand.
Prior to the establishment of the state of Israel, by far the safest home the Jews have ever known was here in America. No doubt there was anti-Semitism here, but with a few exceptions it was golf-course anti-Semitism: disgraceful, but a long, long way from the pogroms and the death camps. Why was America such a safe home for the Jews? Well, because up until very recently --- 2008 let's say - envy was not admired here in America. "Coveting" wasn't sold here as a virtue, either.
So, to the American Jews who voted in huge numbers for the man who was personal friends of Palestinian terrorist - Rhashid Khalidi - to babysit his children - to the American Jews that watched and supported Occupy Wall Street as it smashed crystal windows and denounced Jewish bankers; to the American Jews who continue to vote for an ever more powerful state when no one in the world has more to fear from powerful states like the National Socialist German Workers Party or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; to those American Jews who watched through the 1930's and 40s and ask, "how could they have let that happen?" I would simply say, "How can you let this happen? Why do so many of you vote for this to happen - pay for it to happen?"
Tea Party Conservatives, like me - genuine friends of Israel and the Jewish people - look at you and think "It's obvious you've lost your minds. Have you lost your souls as well?"
Your support keeps freedom alive!
