Retired 4 star Admiral Blows Whistle on Benghazi new Evidence

A lot has been said and written, but this promises to break the case wide open!

Ambassador Stevens, beaten, raped, and dragged through the streets of Benghazi for 5 hours clearly not overcome by smoke inhalation, while US media alleged he was being helped to the hospital by the good people of Benghazi? More Obama White House lies!
There have been many theories and accusations about the Benghazi fiasco that not only cost Ambassador J. Christian Stevens his life, but the lives of his staff and one Navy Seal body-guard as well. This action which led to a complete conflagration of terrorist attacks against US diplomatic buildings throughout the Middle East and North Africa still remains largely uninvestigated by the government, unprosecuted by AG Eric Holder’s Depart of Justice, and refuses to bring the guilty parties to justice while many know the truth and are not coming forward. Even though President Obama is implicated in this overseas tragedy still the truth has not emerged.
That has all changed. Finally, an authoritative figure with the proper credentials has stepped up to the plate to tell the true story of what did happen without the lies and cover-ups that have so far kept those guilty of murder from standing trial. The admission on the part of this man will likely blow the Benghazi scandal wide open and lead to arrests if we can get our legal system to act as it should. That, however, is a big if.

The story as it truly unfolded
According to a report from the Washington Times, retired 4 Star Admiral James Lyons reveals the entire plot that led to the deaths of Americans in Libya that could have been prevented, who gave the orders, and why events took place as they tragically did. Admiral James Lyons is probably the highest ranking figure ever to intervene in a federal government criminal case, and testify. Thanks to this man’s dedication to his country and the truth, we will finally know the truth and who was responsible.
In his words Lyons says that the attack on Benghazi was a bungled kidnapping attempt to be perpetrated upon Ambassador Stevens. This was to appear to be a hostage exchange for a terrorist prisoner who was to be released in trade for a supposedly captured US ambassador. The trade would have been for Omar Abdel Rahman an international prisoner, known as the Blind Sheikh.
This apparent abduction by terrorists of our ambassador and then negotiated trade for the Blind Sheikh would have been the “October Surprise” that would have elevated President Obama’s flagging popularity and boosted his approval ratings for a re-election. A dramatic prisoner exchange that saved our ambassador’s life However, something went horribly wrong. A cunning and illegal bit of treachery by the Obama White House turned into something entirely different. Obama’s October surprise turned into a carnage orchestrated by the White House itself as the President, Leon Panetta, and CIA Director, David Petraeus watched via a UAV real-time feed as a 7 hour attack on the Benghazi Embassy raged. Reportedly, stand down orders were given several times to different units within striking distance.
A plot of pure deception
With what should have been only a staged kidnapping of Ambassador J. Christian Stevens, instead, Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty refused a stand down order and began doing their job of protecting the ambassador using force. Immediately the well-trained Seals began inflicting heavy casualties upon the terrorists who thought they were merely in a cake walk to abduct Ambassador Stevens without mishap. As a result of the plan going awry, a massive attack arose from the anger of the terrorists who felt they had been betrayed by President Obama. In the aftermath of the battle which saw Navy Seal Glen Doherty killed after the embassy had been overrun along with the ambassador’s staff. Ambassador Steven’s whose body showed up 5 hours later at a Benghazi hospital supposedly overcome by smoke, but as the initial foreign press reports indicated a much different outcome, in fact, Stevens was raped, tortured, and dragged around Benghazi in retaliation for the botched Obama White House plan.If not for foreign press agents, who were there and saw, we would never have known the truth as the sold out leftist media of the US would have hidden this fact to aid President Obama’s campaign efforts.
Obama hands over Libya to Al Qaeda
Was this just a freak occurrence that belies the true nature of dealings in Libya with American diplomatic efforts, just one glitch in normal standard operating procedure? No, according to former Admiral Lyons and many others such as Glen Beck, who have all uncovered evidence that lead to much more sinister deeds being undertaken. Evidence of a working relationship between the US and its alleged terrorist enemies had already delivered Libya to the Al Qaeda terrorist organization through infiltration of the government, media, and general society prior to the rebellion against Muammar Gaddafi that toppled the dictator last year. That the US has worked with Al Qaeda awarding them security contracts for all US embassies and consulates as well as border protection has instead allowed Libya to become a haven for numerous terrorist operators who have automatic access to Libya’s territory to carry out their training. All this with the support and blessing of the Obama administration. This is not only unthinkable, but beyond excuse or rationalization. There should already be indictments for many in the state department, in the DOJ, all the way up to the oval office, yet, so far nothing has been done.
Treason plain and simple
It goes even farther than that. Evidence indicates that Ambassador Stevens was being used as an arms dealer to supply Jihadists in the region to support yet another uprising in Syria. Just prior to the murder of our ambassador, he was trying to locate guns that had been walked across Libya’s border through Turkey to other countries just as the ATF had done in operation Fast and Furious on the border of Mexico. These are not the actions of inexperience or bad intelligence. They are the actions of traitorous intention. President Obama will, no doubt, be linked to these deaths and operations if Congress will only act, and do its duty in prosecuting a treasonous president who is endangering national security.
There is no where else for a Congressional investigation to turn other than naming the conspirators, determining when officials knew, and assembling the evidence that murder was committed on behalf of the White House to silence those who knew and could testify. Through out the Obama presidency over the last four years the administration has master minded operations that have caused numerous controversies and crises, not to mention the deaths of Americans.
When will the GOP take action?
The Republicans have missed opportunities to discredit the President, to impeach Obama in the wake of waging war against Libya without Congressional approval, and allowed executive privilege to  quash subpoenaed demands for evidence on Fast and Furious never released by AG Eric Holder. John Boehner, Speaker of the House, has refused to exercise initiative whenever the GOP could have used much-needed momentum to stem the tide against the incessant assaults against state’s rights, constitutional rights, and the traditional institutions of America. Will the recent damning evidence now uncovered over the Benghazi fiasco thanks to Admiral James Lyons be implemented to convict the President of potential high treason, or will we see yet another case of criminal acts ignored and hidden at the expense of the American people? If you bother to take interest and act as a responsible citizens contact your congressman and demand action!

Oklahoma congressman slams Obama’s rule by executive fiat

With President Barack Obama implementing new climate change regulations through the EPA without the consent of Congress, many Republicans are noting the threat that unilateral executive action represents to our constitutional system of checks-and-balances.
During a speech from the House floor on Friday, Rep. Jim Birdenstine (R-OK) cited some examples of President Obama’s unilateralism and noted that it takes the decision making process out of the hands of Congress, the representatives of the people.
“The President decided to raise energy prices on all Americans, which adversely affects the poor the most, and he didn’t ask Congress. The President decided to unilaterally reduce our strategic nuclear deterrent when more countries than ever have nuclear weapons — [with] no treaty that would require consent of the Senate,” said Birdenstine. “The President decided which health insurance plans the people are allowed to have. The President didn’t ask Congress or the people, for that matter. The list goes on.”
“In America, we are either moving more towards liberty or more towards tyranny,” continued Birdenstine. “Well, I think we should ask ourselves what tyranny would look like in the United States of America.”
After recounting some recent events, Birdenstine noted that the result of a president ruling by executive fiat would limit the power of the legislative branch and greatly dminish the representation of the people. “The President told us that he would fundamentally transform America,” he recalled, “and I think that is exactly what he is doing.”

Biden Calls Tea Partiers “Extremists,” Says Congressional Republicans “Afraid” Of Them…

Hi, Rhode Island! Enjoy your 10% #Obamacare hikes!

If you’re lucky.
Rhode Island Health Insurance Commissioner Christopher F. Koller has approved 2014 health insurance rates that he called “significantly lower” than those requested — but that still involve increases in premiums.
For the majority of Rhode Islanders who get health insurance from large employers, rates will go up, on average, 9.5 percent to 12 percent.
Three points about this:
  1. Don’t expect that this is the last time that the rates will go up; the whole thing reeks of Let’s raise them as little as possible this time and push the envelope more next time. Because that’s how it works.
  2. Remember how prices were supposed to go down under Obamacare? Notice how that somehow became “significantly lower premium increases?” Sorry, but we told so.
  3. James Langevin (D, RI-02) voted for Obamacare. Sheldon Whitehouse (D, RI) voted for Obamacare. Jack Reed (D, RI) voted for Obamacare. The only reason that David Cicilline (D, RI-01) did not vote for Obamacare was because at the time he was off running Providence into the ground*. No Republican voted for Obamacare. The rise in Rhode Island’s insurance rates is not. Our. Fault.
I don’t wish to be cruel to the voters of Rhode Island: but this is what happens when you let your state be exclusively run by, and exclusively represented by, Democrats. I’m sure that looking for an alternative seems all very icky for voters in that state: but whether it is ickier than the 13-17% rate hikes that the insurance companies are pushing for, and will very soon get, is only a rhetorical question for hardcore Democrats who still adamantly refuse to admit that they severely messed up with Obamacare. The rest of us are not actually obligated to cater to progressive’s self-delusion…

Mike Lee and Ted Cruz challenge Obama with new military religious freedom amendments

Hey, Rachel: I’m Pretty Certain “Creepy Ass Cracker” is a Racial Slur

After Tuesday’s testimony in the George Zimmerman trial by star witness Rachel Jeantel some of my white devil, honky, gringo, pasty skin, mackerel snatchin’, Caucasian buddies got all up in arms about Rachel Jeantel stating that “creepy ass cracker” is not a racial slur.
First of all, Rachel, and I hate to break it to you, sister -- and I use that word “sister” in the strictest biblical sense of the word -- but “creepy ass cracker” does, historically, denote derision towards the pigmentally challenged of this world.
By pointing this out to you, I do not mean to demean or berate you. It’s just a friendly FYI I’m putting out there for you to consider, for future reference, because it does offend some of my tribe’s more genteel members.
That said, it really doesn’t offend me. Matter of fact, I prefer cheeky ass cracker to creepy ass cracker as the former borrows capital from British slang and merges it with an 18th century Floridian colloquialism, making it at least a quasi-compliment for this 21st century, brutish wordsmith; while the latter denotes a middle-aged white dude who comments way too much on a cute teenage girl’s Facebook page. Or a teenage boy’s Facebook page, for that matter. But I digress …
Another thing that got a lot of my WASPY buddies miffed by your testimony last week was the fact that the media isn’t Paula Dean-ing you for your use of an obvious racial epithet. To that I would suggest just forgiving them if they tweeted you something untoward, as some of my buddies are arriving a little late to the party and it’s just now dawning on them that the media is unsympathetic to their genome’s plight.
Thirdly, I’d watch it calling someone or something “retarded.” A lot of folks, especially those with special needs friends and family members, take umbrage to that phraseology. It’s just a suggestion to consider. Seriously.
Another thing to ponder if you happen to get called to the stand again, is to get your stories straight while you’re giving testimony or it could turn out better for the defense than the prosecution.
And finally, I know you didn’t ask for this type of spotlight to bear down on you but, if I were you, I would really, really dial down on the rude answers and the obtuse facial expressions, as it sure didn’t look great on television, and at the end of the day, we all have to get along.

Dangerous Times: Obama's Perversity

In economics, a "perverse effect" means getting what you don't want.  If McDonald's makes an executive decision to sell lousy burgers and ends up bankrupt, that is a perverse decision.  Markets are tough on companies that act perversely, but the Amazonian jungle of government allows perverse incentives to flourish and spread.  In our current state of national perversity we have massive voter ignorance and apathy (and therefore no punishment for misgovernment), a Senate that passes critical legislation without even bothering to read it, an income tax code written by special-interest lobbyists over decades, and an IRS that is so deeply politicized that voter outrage has no visible impact at all.  Add a one-party media and government control over one seventh of the economy coming up, and you know we're not going to come out of this unscathed.
Chicago is basically a one-party regime.  How can you tell if you're living under one-party rule?  Your media aren't going to tell you.  Your government isn't either.  Your schools are part of the mob monopoly.  But there are signs: the biggest one is that open scandals and crimes have no consequences.  We all know Holder is a perverse attorney general, that the EPA is run by scientific know-nothings, that Wall Street has high-level lines running into this administration, that "green technology" contradicts the known facts of physics, and that "catastrophic climate change" is a self-serving farce.
This presidency is practically defined by its perversity.  When this administration gets caught with its pants down, it just becomes even more grandiose.
All the scandals the media decided to expose after the election have not changed any behavior.  All the costs of ObamaCare are scheduled to come due after the election, and there must be millions of Americans still deluded enough to believe they didn't buy a lemon again.  Anybody with a computer can now read the weekly exposés of the much-admired British government'shealth system, with dirty, overcrowded hospital rooms; spreading antibiotic resistance; poor treatment for older people (who don't have enough QALYs left on their life tickets); and deliberately uncontrolled immigration to bring in cheap Labour voters.  These are all in our future.
But Americans voted for Obama because he would relieve their white guilt forever.  They chose not to know the consequences.  When things fall apart, they will blame another scapegoat.  Obama's perversity -- his endless big promises leading to terrible outcomes -- echoes the growing perversity of our culture.  This is a very stubborn disease, and it may take decades to cure.
The Jihad War is yet another example of perversity.  There certainly is a danger of foreign attacks today, but this is not the first time: in 1812, the Redcoats burned the White House down.  The Soviets ran constant bomber and submarine probes against the U.S., just as we did to them.  Previous U.S. responses to military threats have been proportionate.  Thomas Jefferson sent some Navy ships and Marines to deal with the Algerian pirates who attacked our merchant vessels on the high seas.  
But Obama authorized global violations of the privacy rights of billions of people all over the world.  Under Obama, we have abused the greatest promises of web technology.  We are now hated and feared by Russia, Germany, China, Britain, and our former allies, who can no longer trust us.  Who knows when the next kid with a thumbdrive will download their Swissbank accounts for all the world to see?  In this Brave New World, we still can't answer the ancient question -- can you trust a stranger with your private information? -- in the affirmative.
In computer jargon, searching every person in the world is called a "brute force" approach.  Brute force means you frisk grandmothers and babies at the airport.  Intelligent search means focusing on potential terrorists and letting grandmothers go on their way.  Every time you take off your stuff at an airport checkpoint these days, you are looking at the waste and invasiveness of brute force search.
Muslims are said to number about a billion.  Dangerous jihadists are less than 0.01% of that number on any given day -- maybe 10,000.  A hundred thousand, max.  Those are the people we need to spot if they buy a cash air ticket from Timbuktu to Detroit, like the underwear bomber.  Actual jihad soldiers are usually 20-something males, heavily indoctrinated in Muslim countries or in Western mosques.  They are surrounded by funders, ideologues, propagandists, enablers, bomb-makers, fellow-travelers, and all the rest.  But the violent hard core is easily analyzed on your home computer.  It's not hard.
The NSA has now been blown open by making the most obvious mistakes in history.  It does not matter how many supercomputers you have, because your weak spot is always the human factor.  When the next 20-something kid with delusions of grandeur walks out of another top-secret NSA building carrying a thumb drive, the problem isn't computers, high-tech encryption, or Chinese hackers.  The problem is human beings.
Presidents can never control everything.  The greatest example today is the flourishing of the U.S. energy sector.  We are now a net exporter of hydrocarbon fuels, the cleanest kind: natural gas.  This has happened because the market financed exploration in shale deposits, gambled that a workable technology would be found, and, because of the high price of fuel, made competitive investments in Montana and Canada that are paying off even now.  It is an amazing story of the creativity and efficiency of a fairly free market in the face of a government and media that are passionately and irrationally hostile to energy production in this country.  The spread of American shale technology will revolutionize world energy markets, because vast quantities of shale have now been discovered off the coasts of Israel and Cyprus, in Poland, in the South China Sea, and in India.  The end of the forty-year OPEC monopoly is in sight, and all because the market found ways to get around the Persian Gulf bottleneck using smart technology.
In the face of fantastic success stories in clean fuel discoveries today, Obama is still pretending to see artificial scarcities.  He still has to save the earth, which is in no particular danger.
Perverse incentives, and perverse decisions.

Proof: Hillary Clinton Deliberately Lied About Benghazi

It is doubtful that anyone will ever forget the tragic events in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, where a terrorist attack claimed the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Many Americans were left to wonder why CIA agents who could have helped were told to “stand down” when the Benghazi Consulate in Libya was attacked.
It is now a well-known fact that obvious attempts were made by Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration to convince the American public that no one had any certainty about what was happening in Benghazi until it was too late to intervene. However, as more facts are uncovered, Clinton’s claim appears to be unraveling. Congressmen who have seen secret emails have come forward, saying that she deliberately lied about the investigation.
House Republicans recently ruled that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other high-ranking officials of the State Department were directly responsible for reducing security levels at the Libyan consulate despite a high threat environment. This contradicts Clinton’s testimony, given before Congress, during which she said, “The requests didn’t come to me, I didn’t deny them.” From the report; To protect the State Department, the administration deliberately removed references to al-Qaida-linked groups and previous attacks in Benghazi in the talking points used by [United Nations] Ambassador [Susan] Rice, thereby perpetuating the deliberately misleading and incomplete narrative that the attacks evolved from a demonstration caused by a YouTube video.
Overwhelming evidence has now been uncovered to prove that the above statement made by Clinton was false, and that she did indeed deny requests for help. Communications such as e-mails have been uncovered, although only viewed by a few members of Congress, that prove repeated requests for additional security were denied at the highest levels of the State Department. The report lays direct blame on Clinton, who personally gave approval to the systematic withdrawal of help from Benghazi as far back as April 2012.
In fact, thousands of pages of emails and documents were analyzed before the report was published. From CBS News:
["National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden] noted specifically that the administration gave Congress access to ten thousand pages of documents and that senior agency officials have briefed congressmen publicly and privately on the matter.”
State Department cables boasting then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s signature acknowledged a plea for additional help from then-Ambassador Cretz. The cable was a formal request for tightened security at the consulate. Her signature on these documents clearly contradicts Clinton’s previous testimony claiming that the requests were handled by other professionals in the department and not by her. The Five House Committees announced on April 23 that they are holding Clinton and other State Department officials directly responsible for the fatal reduction of security at the consulate.
The House has also released an Interim Progress Report about the Benghazi terrorist attack and the following conclusions were reached:
Hillary Clinton lied to Congress, and President Obama and others in his Administration lied to the American Public by executing a cover-up.
Shortly after the attack, it was strongly inferred by both President Obama and Hillary Clinton that the assault was nothing more than a reaction to an offensive anti-Muslim YouTube video, although there is now substantial proof that these two individuals knew otherwise.
There is also evidence that any mention of terrorism was scrubbed from the White House talking points. Statements were later made by the office of the Director for National Intelligence that these points were indeed scrubbed, but it was done for reasons of national security rather than to engage in a cover-up. Those statements have now been contradicted by a 46-page House Republican report on the Benghazi attacks. Arguably, some of the most incriminating evidence–which has gone unreported until recently–is certain communications, including classified e-mails, that indicated the talking points regarding previous attacks in Benghazi were removed to “protect the State Department,” which is obviously not an acceptable reason for hiding such information.
Although Clinton has now testified, Congress has not yet heard from the United States government personnel who survived the attack. By a 67%-26% margin, voters believe these individuals should be subpoenaed if the State Department will not allow them to be interviewed by congressional investigators.
Meanwhile, Hillary is the Democrats’ favorite choice for next president. We live in dark times. It’s absolutely vital that people know she’s a liar with the blood of Americans on her hands. Please share this as much as you can on Facebook, Twitter, and in discussion forums. Get the truth out.

Obama Tells Christians Not To Protest Muslim Brotherhood

Is he speaking as a Christian?

As Egyptians of all factions prepare to demonstrate in mass against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi’s rule on June 30, the latter has been trying to reduce their numbers, which some predict will be in the millions and eclipse the Tahrir protests that earlier ousted Mubarak. Accordingly, among other influential Egyptians, Morsi recently called on Coptic Christian Pope Tawadros II to urge his flock, Egypt’s millions of Christians, not to join the June 30 protests.
While that may be expected, more troubling is that the U.S. ambassador to Egypt is also trying to prevent Egyptians from protesting—including the Copts. The June 18 edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s June 17 meeting with Pope Tawadros, she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood.
The Pope politely informed her that his spiritual authority over the Copts does not extend to political matters.
Regardless, many Egyptian activists are condemning Patterson for continuously behaving like the Muslim Brotherhood’s stooge. Leading opposition activist Shady el-Ghazali Harb said Patterson showed “blatant bias” in favor of Morsi and the Brotherhood, adding that her remarks had earned the U.S. administration “the enmity of the Egyptian people.” Coptic activists like George Ishaq openly told Patterson to “shut up and mind your own business.” And Christian business tycoon Naguib Sawiris—no stranger to Islamist hostility—posted a message on his Twitter account addressed to the ambassador saying “Bless us with your silence.”
Indeed, the U.S. ambassador’s position as the Brotherhood’s lackey is disturbing—and revealing—on several levels. First, all throughout the Middle East, the U.S. has been supporting anyone and everyone opposing their leaders—in Libya against Gaddafi, in Egypt itself against 30-year U.S. ally Mubarak, and now in Syria against Assad. In all these cases, the U.S. has presented its support in the name of the human rights and freedoms of the people against dictatorial leaders.
So why is the Obama administration now asking Christians not to oppose their rulers—in this case, Islamists—who have daily proven themselves corrupt and worse, to the point that millions of Egyptians, most of them Muslims, are trying to oust them?
What’s worse is that the human rights abuses Egypt’s Coptic Christians have been suffering under Muslim Brotherhood rule are significantly worse than the human rights abuses that the average Egyptian suffered under Mubarak.

Obama Administration Suing BMW and Dollar General For Racism

If I am a retailer I am not going to hire someone with a criminal background, especially in retail theft! Again Race does not matter. If its a felony that usually throws up  a flag. I don't see it as a race issue. If its on paper as a red flag with a blank face on it they probably won't get the job. Government needs to stay out of it!

Dollar General was doing their due diligence prior to hiring candidates -- they ran background checks. Apparently, the background checks were weeding out too many African Americans and that has the Obama administration (Equal Employment Opportunity Corp) crying foul. They think it is racist.
The Obama administration is suing Dollar General and a BMW facility in South Carolina for the alleged unfair use of criminal background checks for job applicants, months after warning companies about how such screenings can discriminate against African Americas.
The suits were filed June 11 by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which last year issued new guidelines that cautioned against rejecting minority applicants who have committed a crime and recommended businesses eliminate policies that “exclude people from employment based on a criminal record.”
The suits have re-ignited concerns over such issues as potential federal overreach, the overlap of state and federal law and companieslosing their rights to protect customers, workers and assets while trying to adhere to fair hiring practices.


NC Commissioner: No White Males Need Apply

I'm no Racist and anyone that knows me is aware of that. Its Elected GARBAGE Like this that does not deserve to be in an Elected Position! I see it as qualification, not the color of your skin!

Where's the Equal Employment Opportunity Corp?

A North Carolina commissioner says she will not hire white males. She is anAfrican American woman.

Although some see it as a clear-cut case of race discrimination, Kim Ratliff, a County Commissioner in Mecklenburg County, N.C., doesn’t regret saying that the next county manager should be a “non-white male.”
Ratliff’s comments were made last Friday when she commented on the departure of longtime county manager Harry Jones, WISTV.com reports.
The County Commissioner said other county officials should learn from Jones’ tenure as county manager.
“There were some people the manager was not talking to. There were county commissioners who were not talking to the manager,” she said, adding that the future county manager must have open lines of communication with all colleagues.
She continued, saying that she’d like to see “someone who is diverse – hopefully someone outside of North Carolina would be ideal for me.” Ratliff added that the county needs a “non-white male who can good working relations with all people.”


Obama’s DOJ Defunding Youth Programs That Mention God

This Really bothers me that these Idiots are involved with Church. If I remember correctly Church and State is separated! 

The First Amendment prohibits a mandatory national religion. It does not go the full Nietzsche and declare that “God is dead.” You’d never know that, though, from the Department of Justice decision to cut funding for two youth organizations simply because the sheriff running the programs refused to sign a pledge promising to ban prayer or any mention of God at the organizations’ meetings. Bossier Parish, Louisiana, has a Young Marines chapter and a youth diversion program. The Young Marines is not part of the United States Marines. It’s a community-based program youth program, many of whose adult volunteers are former, retired, active duty, or reserve Marines. The youth diversion program has a voluntary student-led prayer, while the Young Marines take an oath that – gasp! – mentions God:
From this day forward, I sincerely promise, I will set an example for all other youth to follow and I shall never do anything that would bring disgrace or dishonor upon God, my Country and its flag, my parents, myself or the Young Marines. These I will honor and respect in a manner that will reflect credit upon them and myself. Semper Fidelis.
Because of these generic references to God, the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) defunded both organizations, despite the fact that they’ve successfully helped more than a thousand young people in the parish. The programs are therefore $30,000 poorer.
Julian Whittington, Bossier Parish’s sheriff, is furious about what happened. As far as he’s concerned, this was government “aggression and infringement of our religious freedoms.”  In an interview with Fox News, Whittington explained what the DOJ told the groups:
We were informed that these are unacceptable, inherently religious activities and the Department of Justice would not be able to fund the programs if it continued. They wanted a letter from me stating that I would no longer have voluntary prayer and I would also have to remove ‘God’ from the Young Marine’s oath.
Fox obtained correspondence from a DOJ attorney and discovered that what particularly upset the DOJ was the part of the Young Marine’s oath stating promising to “Keep myself clean in mind by attending the church of my faith.” As far as the attorney was concerned sponsoring this chapter of the Young Marines meant “funding on inherently religious activities, such as prayer, religious instruction and proselytization.” This violated the rule that “any religious activities must be kept separate in time or location from DOJ-funded activities.”
Rep. John Fleming, R. La., doesn’t see this just as an attack on one Louisiana parish that has successfully helped more than 1,000 young people with its program. Instead, he sees it as part of a broader Obama administration effort to attack religion (or, more accurately, the Christian faith) wherever it appears in American life:
There is a very wide effort coming out of the administration that seeks to stamp out freedom of expressions – particularly religion and especially freedom of Christian expression. They are willing to throw the youth overboard and remove the funding just in the name of making this an atheist, agnostic, secular organization.

The Incredible Shrinking Presidency

The President is on a goodwill trip to Africa, while back here in our nation's capital it was one of the most important weeks in the history of the Republic.
On Tuesday the U.S. Supreme Court announced its ruling on a case involving the Voting Rights Act -- the part of the act that required nine states to get Justice Department permission to make any changes to voting practices.
That sanction was the result of decades of mistreatment of minority voters at the hands of the White majorities, so Congress decided they couldn't be trusted to run their own elections.
Writing for the 5-4 majority, Chief Justice John Roberts didn't forbid any Federal interference in state voting laws but said, as quoted by the New York Times:
"Our country has changed. While any racial discrimination in voting is too much, Congress must ensure that the legislation it passes to remedy that problem speaks to current conditions."
So look for Democrats in the House and Senate to introduce new legislation with an eye toward requiring the same "pre-clearance" that was required before this ruling.
Liberals are fuming, but Barack Obama is missing from the discussion.
The next day, the very same Supreme Court struck down the "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA) which limited Federal spousal benefits to a marriage between a man and a woman.
In that case, as we read in the Washington Post,
"The court declared that gay couples married in states where it is legal must receive the same federal health, tax, Social Security and other benefits that heterosexual couples receive."
The Court did not directly rule on the other gay marriage case -- whether the ban on gay marriage in California (Proposition 8) was constitutional.
The Court decided that the group that had sued to uphold Prop. 8 didn't have the "standing" to bring such a case and let the lower court ruling that permitting same-sex marriages in California stand.
Thus gay couples - within a couple of weeks - will have the right to marry in California. And they can receive the same federal benefits as any other married couple.
Tea Party Republicans and their allies on the religious right were quick to declare the end of civilization as we know it. They were busily preparing language to propose a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
Now it's conservatives who are angry, and Barack Obama is still missing from the discussion.
The third piece of history this week was the vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday approving the Senate's version of immigration reform by a vote of 62-38. That was not quite the 70 votes supporters had hoped for, but it was well over the simple majority needed for final passage.
The immigration bill was hashed out by what has become known as the "Gang of Eight" and, with the addition of a last minute amendment to significantly strengthen border security by two additional Senators, made passage a foregone conclusion.
House Republicans led by Speaker John Boehner immediately said the Senate version was "dead on arrival."
Conservatives were angry again, and Barack Obama was absent from yet another key discussion.
In other developments, the Inspector General of the Treasury Department -- under which the Internal Revenue Service operates -- wrote a letter indicating that earlier claims of the IRS targeting groups with the word "progressive" (or some variant) in their names at the same rate as they were focusing on conservative groups was nonsense.
He wrote, according to the Huffington Post, that:
"His investigators found that of 298 applicants for tax-exempt status that the IRS flagged for possible political involvement between 2010 and 2012, six had "progress" or "progressive" in their names."
That is about 2 percent.
Liberal pundits were embarrassed at being misled by the Obama administration, conservatives were outraged by the Administration's cheap attempt to deflect the IRS story, and Barack Obama was once again missing from an important discussion.
