 Hilly, Bill and Osama — Fact vs. Fiction 
During Saturday's GOP debate, Marco Rubio made the point that "Bill Clinton didn't kill Osama bin Laden when he had the chance to kill him." Naturally, Hilly Clinton took issue with that factual assertion. "Yes, there was an effort to kill him," she conceded. "Based on the intelligence that was available, missiles struck what was thought to be a training camp. So it wasn't like there wasn't an effort." Then she added, "I see somebody like Senator Rubio just twisting himself into pretzels, trying to appeal to the base of his party — to try to say things that have no common sense or merit to them."
          She is, of course, dead wrong. As Mark Alexander wrote in 2006, "The fact is, during his eight years in office, Clinton had numerous opportunities to capture or kill Osama, but refused. Air Force Lt. Col. Robert Patterson, who carried the 'nuclear football' codes for the Clinton administration, notes, '[W]e could have prevented the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, we could have prevented 9/11 and we could have prevented the bombings of the embassies in Africa if President Clinton had taken one of these opportunities. ... We had eight chances at least to either nab bin Laden or to kill him.' Michael Scheuer, former CIA chief of the team responsible for hunting bin Laden, confirmed that prior to 9/11 SpecOps had two opportunities when Osama was literally in their sights, but Clinton pulled the plug on both operations.
          "Additionally, after 9/11, Clinton admitted he turned down an opportunity to take custody of bin Laden: 'He was expelled from Saudi Arabia in 1991, then he went to Sudan, and we'd been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start dealing with them again. They released him. At the time, 1996, he had committed no crime against America, so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America.'
          "Perhaps Mr. Clinton forgot that bin Laden had in 1995 been named a conspirator in the first WTC attack. Later, in his testimony before the 9/11 Commission, Clinton dismissed his own statement as 'inappropriate' — which is to say, 'truthful.'"
          Hilly can yammer all she wants about pretzels and lobbing a few cruise missiles, but, if anything, Rubio didn't go far enough in detailing Clinton's failure.  -The Patriot Post

 CIA Chief: Islamic State Will Try to Strike  America   In an interview  with CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday, CIA Director John Brennan warned the Islamic State (ISIS) will eventually try to strike the American homeland. "I'm expecting them to try to put in place the operatives, the material or whatever else that they need to do, or to incite people to carry out these attacks," Brennan said. "So I believe that their attempts are inevitable. I don't think their successes necessarily are. ... Paris was a failure of intelligence. All but one of the eight terrorists were French citizens, trained by ISIS in Syria. They returned, unnoticed, and attacked six locations killing 130 people."
          Brennan's is similar to the threat assessment given by James Clapper, director for National Intelligence, when he told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that the Islamic State would attack within the U.S. He added, "In my 50-plus years in the intelligence business, I cannot recall a more diverse array of challenges and crises that we confront as we do today." Of course, Brennan is anticipating a scenario where the Americans who traveled to fight with the Islamic State attempt to return to our shores. "We've contained them," Barack nObama once said of the Islamic State — just as the attacks in Paris were underway. But that assessment doesn't take into account home grown terrorism, the kind already seen in Chattanooga, San Bernardino and Fort Hood.

 slump-Trump Accuses RNC of Making the  Primary Race Unfair  Donald slump-Trump took aim at the Republican National Committee this week, saying the results of the last debate prove that the party is in violation of the loyalty pledge slump- Trump signed in September. slump-Trump performed poorly during Saturday's debate. While slump-Trump rose in popularity due to his rhetoric on immigration, the recent debate revolved around the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia — and the issue only served to highlight the real estate mogul's poor record on the judiciary. When slump-Trump tried to attack Jeb Bush for his brother's handling of 9/11 and the war in Iraq, the audience booed him. To slump-Trump, it meant that the RNC conspired to stack the audience against him, filling seats with "Jeb's special interests and lobbyists," never thinking that there might be some voters who realize he's no friend to the conservative cause and gave him the appropriate response for his foolish comments.
          But in slump-Trump-land, that's not fair, which should absolve him from his pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee, whoever that may be. "I signed a pledge but it's a double-edge pledge, and as far as I'm concerned they're in default of the pledge," slump-Trump said at one of his South Carolina rallies. Commentator Allahpundit believes slump-Trump's whining is political bluster aimed at drumming up anti-establishment fervor. But if slump-Trump decides to damage the GOP, he could announce a third-party run — something he threatened in the past. Mark Alexander wrote, "This sounds like a set up — 'I'm being treated unfairly, thus I will run third-party to insure a Democrat victory in 2016!'"

Defying Members, UN Pushes Homosexual
Agenda With Postal Stamps
Alex Newman
{thenewamerican.com} ~ Brazenly defying United Nations member governments from around the world, the UN decided to promote  homosexuality, same-sex parenting, transgenderism, and other controversial agendas on a series of commemorative postage stamps... It is the next step in the UN's divisive “Free and Equal” campaign, which claims to have reached a billion people with its propaganda so far. Around the world, though, critics of the so-called LGBT agenda — Lesbian, “Gay,” Bisexual, and Transgender — expressed outrage, slamming the UN and calling on pro-LGBT zealot Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon to apologize and even resign. The UN boss similarly came under fire just last year after publicly celebrating homosexual “marriage” and a child molester known for raping underage boys. http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/europe/item/22546-defying-...

In Syria, nObama-backed “Rebels”
Battle nObama-backed Militias
Alex Newman
.
.
{thenewamerican.com} ~ Further illustrating what would at least appear to be the incredible absurdity of what passes for U.S. government “foreign policy,” Sunni jihadist “rebels” in Syria backed by al-Qaeda and the nObama administration have been battling against Shia militias that have also been backed by nObama... Both sides are fighting with American weapons, according to news reports. How much money U.S. taxpayers forked over to arm the two warring Islamic factions was not immediately clear. But the enormous human tragedy on the ground is getting worse quickly. The latest battle between feuding nObama-backed forces was first reported by the far-left Daily Beast, which tends to serve as a mouthpiece for the administration and its agenda. In a story headlined “U.S. Allies Now Fighting CIA-Backed Rebels,” the online publication reported: “Not long ago, U.S. jets and Shia militias worked together to battle ISIS. Today, those militias are trying to take down American proxies in Syria.” Those American proxies, nObama's jihadist Syrian “rebels,” are fighting alongside al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, al Nusra, a top beneficiary of nObama policies.  nObama has no ideal what's he doing. http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/asia/item/22541-in-syria-o...

British Citizens Petition to Stop 
nObama's Influence

nObama with British PM David Cameron
.
{punchingbagpost.com} ~ The people of the UK have spoken. A new petition launched by angry Britons has demanded that President nObama not be allowed to speak in Parliament regarding a referendum on European Union (EU) membership... So far, the petition has received over 4,000 signatures from people calling upon British officials to prevent nObama from influencing Britain to stay in the European Union. The petition needs to hit 10,000 signatures in order to get a response from the government, and 100,000 signatures to have the issue debated in parliament. This petition comes on the heels of a report from The Guardian that stated nObama is planning to persuade Britain to stay in the European Union. Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry also noted that the U.S. has a “profound interest” in a “strong UK staying inside a strong European Union.”        http://punchingbagpost.com/british-citizens-petition-to-stop-obama-...

GOP ALREADY Backing Down on 
Blocking nObama SCOTUS Nomination?
Dave Boyer and Stephen Dinan
.
.
{washingtontimes.com} ~ Good grief, the Justice of the Supreme Court has not even been deceased a week and the GOP that claimed they would block an nObama nomination is already showing signs of weakening... What in the world is wrong with these people? There is no one on nObama’s short list that is even remotely close to Justice Antonin Scalia. How can they possibly even think about allowing nObama to appoint another leftest liberal Supreme Court Justice? This is not something that can be played around with. Once it’s done, that’s it! C’mon ladies and gents in the Senate, put on your big boy and girl drawers and do this! Block his nomination no matter what! Here is why they are saying they have to be careful in blocking nObama’s potential nomination. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/feb/16/gop-signs-back-down...

Arab MK Pens Op-Ed: Israelis Not 
Entitled to Self-Defense

Haneen Zoabi
.
{truthrevolt.org} ~ Anyone who moronically labels Israel an "apartheid state" should look to the country's diverse legislature, or Knesset... Members of Knesset (MKs) come from all walks of life -- race, religion and creeds. In fact, sadly some Knesset members don't even think Israel should exist at all leaving us to wonder where said Knesset member would plan on living and working. Case in point: Israeli Arab MK Haneen Zoabi penned a February 14 opinion column in the American publication  Newsweek, in which she declared that Israel does not have the right to self-defense because it is an "occupying power." She wrote: ‘Self-defense’ is the expression the Israelis use in order to justify any extra-judiciary executions as well as their control over others’ lives. However, there can be no justification for killing, nor for oppression. The occupier does not have the right to self-defense. We, the occupied, have the full and only right to fight it, by all means recognized within the framework of international law and supported by the international community. Zoabi also claimed that terrorists killed by authorities while committing terrorist acts are innocent victims, too. Zoabi is deadly wrong.   http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/arab-mk-pens-op-ed-israelis-not-ent...

Democrats Stunning Hypocrisy On Blocking
Supreme Court Nominees
Jay Caruso
.
.
{redstate.com} ~ The way Democrats are behaving with respect to the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the move to have him replaced, you’d think we were on the verge of a constitutional crisis... It’s a cynical outlook on their part and another example of how Democrats will use anything to their advantage for political gain. Many Democrats are behaving like complete hypocrites when wagging their fingers at Republicans who said they won’t allow nObama’s nominee to replace Scalia go through as whoever it is, will likely be the complete opposite of Justice Scalia. Naturally, Schumer leaves out how they destroyed Robert Bork and how Douglas Ginsburg had to withdraw after a BS story about him smoking weed when he was younger. But here’s Schumer in 2007 talking about Bush and his Supreme Court nominees:    http://www.redstate.com/jaycaruso/2016/02/17/democrats-stunning-hyp...

Palestinian Leaders: Who Are They Fooling?

{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ It is a puzzle: are the leaders of the Palestinian Authority (PA) playing dumb, or do they believe their own ridiculous rhetoric?... As the current wave of stabbings, car-rammings and shooting attacks, which began in October 2015, continues and even seems to be intensifying, PA President Mahmoud Abbas and top Palestinian officials insist that we are witnessing nothing but a "popular peaceful uprising." Abbas said precisely this to a group of Arab Israeli journalists he invited to his office last week. Abbas voiced his full backing for the "popular and peaceful uprising." He further explained that Palestinians were using "all peaceful means" to "resist Israeli occupation." http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/7443/palestinian-leaders-rhetoric

slump-Trump Camp FABRICATES Quote of Tom Coburn In Order To Smear Ted Cruz
 Caleb Howe
.
{redstate.com} ~ This tweet probably alarmed a lot of people. Dan Scavino, of the slump-Trump campaign, claimed that Tom Coburn trashed Ted Cruz as “without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in DC.”... That would indeed be a scandalous and damaging thing if it had happened. But it didn’t happen. It’s a lie. So it is presented as a quote, and retweeted by The slump-Donald himself. No clean hands here. And of course, that’s because there is no quote from Tom Coburn saying that. Instead, some liberal blogger spewed that nonsense. This is from the story that Scavino and slump-Trump linked: The ForwardProgressives writer said that about Cruz. The slump-Trump camp took that line from the article, and in a tweet, faked it as a “quote” from Senator Tom Coburn. And here is what’s more: Tom Coburn is ticked off about it!

Six Fed-Funded Non-Profits Are

{dailycaller.com} ~ Six obscure nonprofits funded almost entirely by federal taxpayers in an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that recruits technically skilled seniors for cheap labor are “scandals waiting to happen,” according to an expert on advocacy groups.... “The idea of government funding charitable works ought to be something conservatives and libertarians are concerned about,” Capital Research Center’s (CRC) Senior Vice President Matthew Vadum told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The government’s been doing this a long time, but it rarely gets discussed.” The CRC is a right-leaning research group that focuses on the funding sources, agendas and public policy influence of political activist non-profits.        http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/17/six-fed-funded-non-profits-are-sc...

How to further degrade military effectiveness
Retired Adm. James A. Lyons
.
.
{aim.org} ~ The president’s climate change order makes war fighting harder
.
When you want to take a country down, the first thing you do is weaken its military. That’s why “sequestration” turned out to be the perfect storm for the nObama administration. It provided the legal basis — actually, an excuse, as in “the budget made me do it” — for the unilateral disarmament of our military forces. Consequently, our forces have been degraded to levels not seen since prior to World War II, and in the Navy’s case, not since before World War I. It should be remembered that sequestration was an nObama administration initiative.
.
Compounding this disastrous situation, with all the instability and challenges we face throughout the world, our once-proud and uncontested military forces have also been subjected to debilitating social engineering directives. This is being done under the mantle of “diversity.” These include the removal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”; forcing women into all combat roles, including our Special Forces and Navy SEALs; and the integration of “transgender” personnel into the military. None of these directives enhance readiness or capability. Of course, the restricted Rules of Engagement our soldiers are forced to observe is another factor leading to the destruction of our military capability and effectiveness, as well as adding to the unnecessary loss of military lives.
.
The net effect has been to not only undermine the moral fiber of our military, but to adversely affect unit integrity, cohesiveness and most importantly, the “will to win.” We most recently saw an example of this with the capture of our two 47-foot heavily armed Riverine Command Boats in the Persian Gulf on Jan. 12 by two lightly armed Iranian center console craft. “Humiliation” describes it best. This was the darkest day for the U.S. Navy since the North Korean capture of the USS Pueblo.
.
Another directive that will adversely affect combat readiness and effectiveness is the recent Executive Order 13653, which directs all government agencies, including the Department of Defense, to prepare for the “impacts of climatic change.” The department last issued a broad directive on climate change in July 2015. President nObama has once again declared that climate change is our No. 1 national security threat. There is no doubt Russia, China, Iran and ISIS will certainly reinforce that view.
.
Consequently, the Pentagon has ordered all commanders down to the tactical unit level to incorporate “climate change” into every aspect of military operations, including combat, intelligence and surveillance, exercises, testing, procurement and whole hosts of other related areas, which are ill-defined. Mind-boggling.
.
The undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics wrote the directive, which was approved by the Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert O. Work. It is understood that this directive provides numerous orders to service secretaries and the Joint Chiefs of Staff on how the strategy to counter climate change is to be incorporated into current war plans, operational plans and operation orders. What the secretary should have already known is that our operational planners always factor in climate and prevailing seasonal weather conditions, including all aspects of terrain. The single objective is winning — not satisfying some faculty-lounge, ill-conceived logic on debatable climate change.
.
Further, the directive orders a new layer of bureaucracy to include a wide array of “climate change boards, councils, and working groups” to ensure climate change is integrated into all programs, plan and policies. With the bloated bureaucracy we already have, we certainly cannot afford another one, particularly with the tight budget crisis we have.
.
Let’s face facts: military planners and operators must deal in reality. That reality is based on how to “win” wars with the least possible loss of life and protect this great nation’s security. Factoring “climate change” into our operational plans and orders makes no sense and is only going to add another layer of confusion and distraction from the principal objective of “winning.”
.
The claim by climate change proponents that there will be more frequent or severe weather events requiring substantial involvement by Department of Defense units is not supported by the U.N.’s most recent global warming predictions. Nonetheless, our military forces have shown over many decades that they are ready and capable to respond to any humanitarian crisis. There is no military in the world better than that of the United States for “projecting humanity.” Fortunately, even though diminished, we still have the capability to project power.
.
The climate change proponents are cut from the same cloth as the social engineers who have never served in the military and never will, and who will never bear any of the responsibilities of the negative impact they have forced on our military forces. They particularly ignore the unnecessary military casualties suffered as a result of these ill-conceived directives. The Joint Chiefs of Staff should continue to take a strong position against these debilitating directives, which adversely affect our military forces’ readiness and capabilities. Nothing less is acceptable.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

Heritage Action   Heritage_Action
 

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

IT Guy@ITGuy1959
 

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
