President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology.
However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.
This is not the first time that the Obama administration has extolled Bin Bayyah, who also has served as the vice president of a Muslim scholars group founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans,” according to Fox News and other reports.

If Canada is clued in that the U.N. serves no useful purpose what has been holding back members of the United States Congress?
At the very least we tell them to find another location as we have no desire to invite terrorists under the cover of diplomats to American soil.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

MPAC represents US Government at Human Rights Conference
Today, Salam Al-Marayati, the president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, spoke in Warsaw, Poland, as part of Ambassador Avis Bohlen’s U.S. delegation to the Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
Just for starters, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) is just one more front group associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. It is traitorous and should never have been allowed to operate in any non-Muslim country. Its members should all have been deported (or, preferably, hanged as spies and saboteurs) a very long time ago. It is inconceivable that the US should be using them as emissaries.

Apparently being mortally wounded or severely injured isn’t considered being shot at, so says Obama who has never served our country in combat. It is now quite clear that if a decision is to be made Obama will make the wrong one. What decision has he made that has been right for “our” country? (emphasis on our not his!)
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
So I just got a letter from MyPay (the way we get paid in the military), saying that I will only reason Combat Pay while deployed for the days that I take fire or am in a hostile area. Now, as an Infantry Marine, I’m constantly in a combat zone…it may not always be popping off, but for them to take that away from us is bullshit. Now, the aviation tech who sits on Camp Leatherneck, sure, I can see him not getting Combat Pay, but to take it away from the grunts, the ground pounders, the front line of defense…come on, Uncle Sam. You let the Liberals win a big one here… Marine from Florida (We are not posting his name for obvious reasons)
According to Military.com, and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (H.R. 1540-7 Sec 616) as of February 1, 2012, this new measure went into effect, and soldiers who are to receive the additional $225/mo. combat pay ‘must’ be in immediate risk of harm. The measure is very specific in its criteria for receiving the additonal pay.

I’ve criticized centralization of power in Washington, and I’ve condemned efforts for global “economic governance.”
The simple message is that bureaucrats shouldn’t try to control our lives, regardless of whether those pencil-pushers reside in Washington or the United Nations.
These are points I made in this interview for Fox Business News.
The specific topic is a boondoggle project know as the White House Rural Council, but we also discuss a troubling U.N. scheme called Agenda 21.
Both are similar in that they are based on the idea that far-away bureaucracies (like this one) should have power over local communities.

In a must see video below, one must scratch their head and say they said what? Countries that routinely brutalize and murder Christians, Jews, copts, and members of their own faith are calling out the U.S. for human rights violations? This is comical to say the least. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
Colum Lynch reported yesterday that the Obama administration is working to stop the UN Human Rights Council from referring Syria to the UN Security Council.
That unusual posture is not, contrary to appearances, the latest example of the administration’s reluctance to criticize human rights abuses. Nor is it the result of a foreign policy that generally “works against dictatorial friends of America and does not oppose, in any significant way, all dictatorial foes of America.”
In fact, this time the Obama administration is doing the right thing in opposing European efforts to move the Syria issue through the Human Rights Council instead of directly through the Security Council. The administration evidently realizes that allowing the tyrannical regimes that control the Human Rights Council to refer a country to the Security Council would set a precedent that could be used against Israel and other western democracies.

More and more Americans are coming to the chilling realization that U.S. membership in the United Nations poses a very real threat to our survival as a free and independent nation.
How many Americans are familiar with it’s formation in 1945 by Communists and socialists? How much more unaware could the American citizen be to not demand from their representatives that the U.S. get out of the U.N.?
Obviously, Americans getting back to work, coming home from wars in the Pacific and Europe were focused on starting families and purchasing their part of the American Dream while this insidious organization planned to destroy from its outset, the very principles upon which America was founded.

One who engages in Islamofascism. In general, Islamofascism refers to the notion that Islam is not so much a religion as it is a political ideology that in many ways resembles “fascism” (i.e. the modern common definition of fascism which equates it with totalitarianism, as opposed to the original capital-F Italian-style Fascism). More specifically, Islamofascism is used to describe either the social structure of a society living under strict Islamic shari’a law, or the interpersonal behavior of someone who acts in accordance with true Islam. An Islamofascist can either be an Islamic fundamentalist, or someone who uses violence or bullying tactics to impose Islamic principles on others — or, more bluntly, a Muslim bigot whose religious beliefs are the source of his bigotry.
Islamofascism similarly pursues its aims through the willful, arbitrary, and gratuitous disruption of global society, either by terrorist conspiracies or by violation of peace between states. Al Qaeda has recourse to the former weapon; Hezbollah, in assaulting northern Israel, used the latter. These are not acts of protest, but calculated strategies for political advantage through undiluted violence. Hezbollah showed fascist methods both in its kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and in initiating that action without any consideration for the Lebanese government of which it was a member. Indeed, Lebanese democracy is a greater enemy of Hezbollah than Israel. Punishments from Sharia law show the same lack of concern for Human Rights and life itself.
It’s time for the United Nations to be disbanded What useful function does it serve? How effective are U.N. sanctions? Sanctions against Iran have had little effect in persuading it to stop its pursuit on nuclear capabilities.
Gun owners might not feel besieged right now, but they should be very concerned. Last week the Obama administration announced its support for the UN Small Arms Treaty. This treaty poses real risks for freedom and safety in the United States as well as the rest of the world.
We Keep Our Guns, UN Can Have Obama
According to the U.N., guns used in armed conflicts cause 300,000 deaths worldwide every year. Their proposed solution is a simple one. Keep rebels from getting guns by requiring that countries “prevent, combat and eradicate” what those countries define as “the illicit trade in small arms.”
The UN’s solution isn’t too surprising when one looks at the long list of notorious totalitarian regimes, such as Syria, Cuba, Rwanda, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, and Sierra Leone, which support these “reforms.” But not all insurgencies are “bad.” To ban providing guns to rebels in totalitarian countries is like arguing that there is never anything such as a just war.
