The Islamic State has repeatedly called for jihad terror attacks in the U.S., and boasted that its jihadis are already here.

Investigative journalist and radio host: The three imperative questions NOT being asked about Benghazi

New York Times bestselling author, investigative journalist and radio host Aaron Klein has a new book out titled “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know,” in which Klein does yeoman’s work in combing through the thousands of pages of available government documents to chronicle the numerous breathtaking but oft-underreported facts on Benghazi, identify the various inconsistencies between and among the testimony of the various parties involved, and ask the questions begging to be answered.

Klein is also the author of several other books exploring the Obama administration and Obama himself, including: The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists, Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office and Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed. Klein is obviously no friend of the Obamas.

Klein in fact devotes a whole section of his book to a comprehensive set of suggested questions he believes must be pursued by the Benghazi Special Investigative Committee led by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). In an extensive interview with Klein, we had the opportunity to ask him what three questions in particular heretofore NOT being asked must be asked. Klein asserted:

One: Why did we hire the February 17th [Martyrs Brigade] militia [to defend the Benghazi special mission compound]?

Two…were there any weapons transfers through this facility? And were the weapons transfers involved in any way, shape, or form, in the attack in the first place

Third: Why were no special forces sent? What were they [our forces] really doing on the night of the attacks on a “training mission,” in Croatia.”

On this third question, Klein elaborated:

There’s something called the C110…forty man special training force. They’re supposed to be maintained to respond to diplomatic emergencies…The anniversary of the 9/11 attacks you would think is the one night…in the entire calendar…that everybody knows jihadists are most motivated to attack. So why would you take the main force to respond to all such emergencies in Africa, and put them, that very night… Keep reading…

Allegations of CIA gun-running activity in Benghazi have been floating around for some time, but, strangely, haven’t seemed to have yet caught Trey Gowdy’s attention. Let’s hope this accusation is explored at length during the Benghazi Special Committee hearings which are just getting under way.

Good News For GOP, Bad News For Obama In Latest CBS/New York Times Poll

A New York Times/CBS News poll shows that President Obama’s approval ratings are similar to those of President George W. Bush in 2006 when Democrats swept both houses of Congress in the midterm elections.

A deeply unpopular Republican Party is nonetheless gaining strength heading into the midterms, as the American public’s frustration with Mr. Obama has manifested itself in low ratings for his handling of foreign policy and terrorism.

The generic ballot question, which measures national sentiment for the House of Representatives vote, shows a notable swing of voters toward the Republican Party and away from Democrats. Voters’ dissatisfaction with their own representatives has hit a high as nearly two-thirds say they are ready to throw their own representatives out of office.

Republican candidates are further buoyed by the fact that voters trust their party over the Democrats to better handle some issues voters consider to be the most important. The economy ranks at the top of that list followed by health care, terrorism and immigration. The Republican Party easily tops the Democratic Party in handling the economy, terrorism and foreign policy while voters are about evenly divided between the two parties on immigration. Democrats do hold a five-point advantage on health care, and many Republican candidates have shied away from making the president’s signature health care law a campaign issue. (…)

At just 34 percent, the rating of Mr. Obama’s handling of foreign policy is a record low for him, but not as low as the 25 percent that Mr. Bush eventually reached. At 41 percent, Mr. Obama’s rating on terrorism is not only his worst personally, but is significantly lower than Mr. Bush in 2006. This is the first time Mr. Obama’s numbers have shown that at least 50 percent disapprove of his handling of the issue.

The more we learn about election year polling, the more confused I get. Consider how these data contrast with recent poll results suggesting that the Democrats may well hold onto their Senate majority. What to believe?

My personal sense, based upon nothing whatsoever but my own gut feeling, is that the American people are completely fed up with Barack Obama and his progressive Democratic fascist thugs. Nearly six years of scandals, attacks upon our Constitution and the complete fiasco of Obama’s so-called “foreign policy” have taken their toll.

Frankly, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if armed insurrection broke out in the near future, but that’s another story. It’s my personal belief that the Democratic Party is going to get slapped, and slapped hard, in November. I hope I’m right.

Easy guide to Obama and the War Powers Resolution

obama smug2

 When Obama gave his speech on September 10, promising to  “degrade and destroy” ISIS, it was interesting for what it said and didn’t say. Obama laid out a four part strategy for defeating ISIS. The most notable thing it didn’t say was that Obama intended to ask Congress for authority to wage a war against ISIS that would, at a minimum, encompass two countries, one of which, Syria, doesn’t want us operating on their territory.

“My administration has also secured bipartisan support for this approach here at home. I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL, but I believe we are strongest as a nation when the President and Congress work together. So I welcome congressional support for this effort in order to show the world that Americans are united in confronting this danger.”

Later in the speech he does recognize the need for limited congressional action:

“Across the border, in Syria, we have ramped up our military assistance to the Syrian opposition. Tonight, I call on Congress again to give us additional authorities and resources to train and equip these fighters.”

Before the speech, Obama told congressional leaders much the same thing:

Ahead of the speech, Obama met for nearly two hours with the top four congressional leaders on the threat posed by the group also known as ISIS and ISIL. The lawmakers left the meeting without speaking to the media.

However, a White House statement released after the session made it clear the president would not be asking for a congressional vote to authorize military force. “The president told the leaders that he has the authority he needs to take action against ISIL in accordance with the mission he will lay out in his address tomorrow night,” the statement said in part. It added that he would

Isn’t that sweet? That nice Mr. Obama doesn’t want to trouble those over-worked, underpaid Congress-critters with petty questions about going to war. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the number of times he’s demonstrated his contempt for the Constitution and laws of the land.

You may recall that the last time he donned his Superman suit and bombed the crap out of Libya, he also didn’t bother checking in with Congress. As Americans now appreciate, that didn’t exactly work out all that well – just ask Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty – and Libya has morphed into a lawless terror state. Things there have degenerated to the point where the Smartest Man in the History of the World was forced to surrender the American Embassy to terrorists, who turned the Embassy swimming pool into a delightful photo op.

With a track record like that, why on earth would Obama want to trouble Congress about going back to war in Iraq?

Syria, you may recall, is allied with Iran and Russia…what could possibly go wrong if we bomb them?

Iraq is somewhat better, as long as you disregard the fact that half the Iraqi army isn’t suitable for combating Sunni terrorists, and the other half won’t fight. There are, at least, the Kurds, who are occupied with protecting their turf, and probably lack the resources to defend all of Iraq.

Although Obama won’t ask Congress for permission to play Generalissimo in Iraq, he was thoughtful enough to inform the enemy that he wouldn’t be putting American boots on the ground (although American boots are already on the ground) which I’m sure the Islamic State found comforting.

Profiling gun buyers: Those race, ethnicity questions on the ATF Form 4473

The Washington Times set off a firestorm this week with an article on the ethnicity and race questions* on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms’ Form 4473, which is filled out by gun buyers across America when they buy a gun from a dealer.

The TWT article focuses on the very natural offense felt by gun buyers – Hispanic gun buyers in particular, who are singled out on the form – at having to make such declarations of race and ethnic affinity when they are making a commercial purchase. And because the race/ethnicity questions were changed on the 4473 in 2012, under Barack Obama, there are at least some people who wonder, not unreasonably, what the Obama administration means by it.

The change made to the form in 2012** requires gun buyers to now declare both an ethnic affinity – “Hispanic or Latino,” or “Not Hispanic or Latino” – and a race. Customers don’t have the option of leaving either of these choices blank. The gun dealer is liable to the ATF for the completeness of the forms, and could lose his license if they’re not filled out entirely.  Keep reading…      

*Obama administration forcing new gun buyers to declare race, ethnicity” (Nothing to see here, folks, we’re only doing this so we can run down those evil Mexican cartel members we weren’t able to give guns to during our brilliant Fast & Furious gun smuggling operation. Did I mention we’re racially profiling Hispanics, too?)

UPDATE: Sept. 18, 2014 – Judge Napolitano’s Take: What Can the Government Legally Ask You When You Buy a Gun?

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano was asked this morning whether this new policy is an infringement on the rights of Americans. He explained that both the First and Second Amendments come into play in this matter.

Napolitano said that the government cannot compel a person to speak – in this case, write down their race and ethnicity on a form.

“This is called forced speech. The First Amendment says Congress can’t infringe speech. The courts have interpreted that to mean the government can’t also compel you to speak,” said Napolitano, adding that the government does not have the “lawful, moral authority” to ask these questions to gun buyers.

He argued no American citizen should have to tell the government about their ethnic background when trying to exercise their Second Amendment right. The creation of the forms stems from the fact that the government wants to know who has a gun, he said. (Keep reading [Video])
