OBAMA..a gangster in the White House

April 12, 2011

Barack Obama: Gangster in the White House
“A bestseller!”—Sean Hannity
“Gangster Government is all the rage!”—Neil Cavuto
Bribery….coercion….intimidation. Sounds like a movie review of The Godfather, but unfortunately we’re talking about our federal government.

So says bestselling author David Freddoso in his controversial new book, Gangster Government: Barack Obama and the New Washington Thugocracy.

In his 2008 New York Times bestseller, The Case Against Barack Obama, Freddoso examined Obama’s pre-presidency actions and ideologies, revealing an extremely liberal Senator with shady alliances who would stop at nothing to become president of the United States.

Picking up where The Case Against Barack Obama left off, Gangster Government not only reveals the damage Obama has done since he has been in office, but exposes a side of Obama few have seen before—the corrupt Chicago politician whose number one goal behind any bill, stimulus, or regulation is to reward his friends and punish his enemies.

As Freddoso reveals, whether those “enemies” are oil companies, small businesses, or ordinary taxpayers like us, Obama will do—and has done—whatever it takes to sideline those who oppose him.

“Americans are used to politicians who help their friends when they can,” says Freddoso. “But no one expected President Obama to reshape the presidency to the extent he has. So far, he has overturned hundreds of years of lawmaking in America, betrayed our Constitution, and mocked millions of voters.”

A devastating and shocking look at a president whose training on Chicago’s political playground shines though every bent law and every broken promise, Gangster Government documents the first two years of an administration that is so corrupt, it would make Al Capone blush.

Obama admits he’s an alien…

A video of Obama himself, in his own words, plainly and matter-of-factly confessing that he was born in Kenya, not the United States.

I’m totally dumbfounded that this issue isn’t even being addressed!
 
Sadly, instead of government of the people, by the people, and for the people, we now have an unrepentant political machine.

It is what it is…

Obama, a ‘Strategic Catastrophe’
Israeli officials say it’s not Iran that is Israel’s greatest threat | Aviel Schneider



Netanyahu to Obama: Let my people…STAY!

Although Israeli officials publicly play down the crisis in relations between Jerusalem and Washington, privately the language is much different. Sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describe Obama as a “strategic catastrophe” for Israel.

Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office, speaking on condition of anonymity to the nation’s top newspapers, see the Obama administration as a serious threat to the future of the State of Israel. On the record, Israel and the US have a “strategic partnership that is unbreakable”; off the record, the terminology is blunt to say the least.

“President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have drawn a clear line, supporting the Palestinian position at the expense of Israel,” said one Netanyahu confidant. “It is insane, it is sick. Relations between Jerusalem and Washington are simply disastrous; the situation has never been so dangerous. This US President wants to establish a Palestinian state at any price and hand them Jerusalem on a silver platter.”

Netanyahu has repeatedly distanced himself from such statements, but commentators say the government speaks with a forked tongue. “Israel’s relations with the US are at a low point, and Obama poses a danger to Israel,” wrote Nahum Barnea in the nation’s biggest newspaper Yediot Ahronot.

The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.

“The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term “Islamic extremism” no longer be used in official government documents and statements.

Furthermore, the US is now accusing Israel of harming American interests in the Middle East. General David Petraeus, the head of US Central Command, said Israel’s intransigence on resolving the conflict with the Palestinians is endangering US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Even the US Congress considers Obama’s behavior toward Netanyahu humiliating. Three-quarters of the House of Representatives, 337 of 435 members, signed a bipartisan letter to Clinton expressing “deep concern over recent tension” between the two countries, and demanding that it be smoothed over quickly and in private.

“Obama is a real problem for Israel,” a senior official told told Yediot. “He is Israel’s biggest strategic catastrophe.”

The newspaper also quoted another official who believes that for the first time Washington has switched sides. “The Obama White House is putting pressure only on Israel but does not expect anything from the Palestinians,” he said. “These American demands are unacceptable.”

“The Americans know very well that Israeli construction has always been happening in East Jerusalem and building in Jewish neighborhoods has never been frozen,” said another official. “The Americans use excuses like [the Jewish neighborhood of] Ramat Shlomo and the Shepherd Hotel [another Jewish building project in East Jerusalem] to confront Netanyahu.”

So during Passover, Netanyahu invited Nobel Prize-winning author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel to his private residence in Caesaria. He urged Wiesel, who is an American citizen, to make it clear to his good friend Obama how important Jerusalem is to the Jewish people.

“Jerusalem was, is and always will be the united capital of Israel,” said Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. “Construction in all parts of Jerusalem will continue.”

According to a poll by the Independent Media Review & Analysis, 70 percent of Israeli Jews oppose a construction freeze in East Jerusalem, compared to only 19 percent who support it. The survey also found that 69 percent believe the division of Jerusalem with international control of the Old City would lead to ongoing conflict rather than peace.

Officials in Netanyahu’s inner circle believe Obama’s strategy is to force a change of government in Israel. By forcing Israeli concessions on the “settlement” issue, hawks could bolt the coalition, pushing Netanyahu into an alliance with the dovish Kadima party. Kadima is led by former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who, under the previous Olmert government, offered the Palestinians an independent state in 97 percent of the disputed territories with a capital in East Jerusalem.

Obama has been buoyed by his domestic success in passing the historic health care reform bill. And he may believe that he can extend that victory to the international arena by resolving the Middle East conflict. But if Obama continues to underestimate Israeli resolve on Jerusalem, his peace efforts are doomed to failure.

Subj: ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ…look out America

 

This is long but worth the time to read it. The info at the end about the Nobel prize winners was really interesting and eye-opening.
  

Subject:  ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ

Subject:  Worth reading a bit of history . . .

ALL  EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ

The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian
Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15 2008.  It
doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of
Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.

REMEMBER AS YOU READ — IT WAS IN A SPANISH PAPER

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible
truth – Europe died in Auschwitz.  We killed six million Jews and replaced
them with 20 million Muslims.  In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought,
creativity, talent.  We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because
they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life:  science, art,
international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world.  These
are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to
ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates
to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious
extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness
to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into
the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan
the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred,
creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their
talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to
life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed
by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and
theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

murdered on base at Fort Hood by a Major that was known as…

a:  you guessed it – aMuslim male extremist between the age of 17 and 40.

No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?  So, to
ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on
killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile
certain people. 

 
They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline
pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s
security detail, 85-year old congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor
winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim males between the ages
17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

Let’s send this to as many people as we can so that Nancy Pelosi, Gloria Aldred and

other dunder-headed attorneys along with federal justices that want to thwart
common sense, feel ashamed of themselves – if they have any such sense.
We can not allow the socialist transformation being brought on by the current
administration to continue.  Look at what it has done to Europe.  We all must stand
together before it’s too late and everything America stands for is lost.

The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps,

teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews
and other non Muslims. 
 
The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves
up in German restaurants. 
 
There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. 
 
There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.

The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for jihad and death to all the infidels.

Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and

less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.  Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for
humankind before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab

neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel’s part, the following two
sentences really say it all:

‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.’
-Benjamin Netanyahu

General Eisenhower warned us…it is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander

of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he
ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding
villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:  ‘get it all on record now – get the films – get

the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say
that this never happened’

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because

it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.  It is not removed as yet.
However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each
country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the second world war in Europe ended.  This e-mail is being

sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million
Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten,
experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way.

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is

imperative to make sure the world never forgets.  This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million
people.  Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

look out for Obama’s policy!

The Status of Non-Muslim Minorities Under Islamic Rule

Dhimmitude: the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. The word “dhimmitude” as a historical concept, was coined by Bat Ye’or in 1983 to describe the legal and social conditions of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule. The word “dhimmitude” comes from dhimmi, an Arabic word meaning “protected”. Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination. Islamic conquests expanded over vast territories in Africa, Europe and Asia, for over a millennium (638-1683). The Muslim empire incorporated numerous varied peoples which had their own religion, culture, language and civilization. For centuries, these indigenous, pre-Islamic peoples constituted the great majority of the population of the Islamic lands. Although these populations differed, they were ruled by the same type of laws, based on the shari’a.

This similarity, which includes also regional variations, has created a uniform civilization developed throughout the centuries by all non-Muslim indigenous people, who were vanquished by a jihad-war and governed by shari’a law. It is this civilization which is called dhimmitude. It is characterized by the different strategies developed by each dhimmi group to survive as non-Muslim entity in their Islamized countries. Dhimmitude is not exclusively concerned with Muslim history and civilization. Rather it investigates the history of those non-Muslim peoples conquered and colonized by jihad.

Dhimmitude encompasses the relationship of Muslims and non-Muslims at the theological, social, political and economical levels. It also incorporates the relationship between the numerous ethno-religious dhimmi groups and the type of mentality that they have developed out of their particular historical condition which lasted for centuries, even in some Muslim countries, till today.

Dhimmitude is an entire integrated system, based on Islamic theology. It cannot be judged from the circumstantial position of any one community, at a given time and in a given place. Dhimmitude must be appraised according to its laws and customs, irrespectively of circumstances and political contingencies.

What is Shari’a?

March 1, 2010

(Islamic law) is a religious legal system created by Islamic scholars to guide Muslims how to live.  Shari’a literallymeans “path” or “way” in Arabic.  It was compiled by Islamic scholars, based of the Qur’an and also the hadith – the traditions recording Muhammad’s words and deeds.

Shari’a covers all aspects of a Muslin’s personal as well as devotional life, from guidance on how frequently to pray to instructions of what to eat and wear.  It also covers the political, economic, legal and military aspects of an Islamic state.  There is no distinction made between secular and religious spheres.  For a Muslim shari’a provides both guidelines to prevent him from sinning and also an identity marker to separate them from non-Muslims.

At the time shari’a was created Muslims held political power, and so it lacks any guidelies for Muslims living as a minority.  It has many discriminatory rules relating to non-Muslims, who are treated as a conquered and subjugated people.  This has been part of the problem surrounding the question “to what extent should Muslims, living in a non-Muslim country, be allowed to live by shari’a?”   It is important for Christians in the West to realize the ultimate implications if shari’a is gradually introduced in their countries.  They will become second-class citizens.  They will no longer be able to share their faith with Muslims, and Muslims will not be able to become Christians.

Shari’a also includes many harsh punishments for certain crimes, including amputation for theft and stoning for adultery.  The punishment for adult males who comvert from Islam to another faith (apostasy) is death; even if they are allowed to live, they will lose their family, inheritance and everything they own.
