Rees Lloyd: Obama Backstabs Israel in UN—Another Day Which Will Live in Infamy

A widely distributed political cartoon shows Barack Hussein Obama embracing Raul Castro, the totalitarian Communist leader of Cuba, and the Ayatollah leading the fascist Islamic Republic of Iran. It is one of the best evidences of Obama’s self-promoting hypocrisy and Machiavellian duplicity.

This is especially true since it was published on “another day  which will live in infamy” — Dec. 23, 2016. That is the day on which the United States, two days before Christmas, by order of  Barack Hussein Obama, aided and abetted the Muslim dominated United Nations General Assembly, fascistic Islamic theocracies, and overt Islamic terrorist organizations like  ISIS, al-Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Palestine Liberation Organization,  in adopting a resolution condemning Israel in the Israel-Palestinian conflict and  declaring as a matter of international law (since U.N. resolutions have that status)  that  Jews have no right to settle outside of the 1948 borders of Israel,  forbidding them to live even in the “Jewish Quarter” of Jerusalem. 

Eight years of Barack Hussein Obama ruling by race in the U.S. and by pro-Islamist policies in the world, has come to this disgraceful end of his presidency in the U.N.
 
If anyone needed further proof that Obama  is an utter conman who deceived  Americans as to what he really is at his progressive liberal neo-socialist anti-American core in which it is and always has been “all about him.”
 
Note that Obama waited until after the 2016 election — that is, after American Jews had contributed their financial support all but exclusively to Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party  — to reverse American policy by abandoning Israel by “abstaining” on the resolution condemning Israel in the U.N. 
 
Indeed, the Machiavellian hypocrisy is blatant— the U.S. vetoed the same resolution in 2011 when Obama was running to be re-elected in 2012.  Now, when Obama’s term is ending and he cannot run again, Obama reverses the U.S. position of 2011 and stabs Israel in  the back. 
 
Thus, Obama betrays and makes dupes of all Americans who believed  him, and in him,  including the American Jews whose millions in campaign contributions helped to elect him twice  when in both campaigns Obama gave assurances that U.S. unwavering relationship in support of Israel would not change if he was elected.
 
Further, while Obama issued the order to “abstain” and thus effectively support the Muslim UN attack  on Israel, Obama claims his disgraceful decision was taken with  the support of Democrat Party leaders Hillary Clinton, who ran in 2016; John Kerry, who ran in 2004, and Joe Biden, who now says he will run for President, again, in 2020. Thus, they, too, and the Democrat Party which they lead, are guilty.
 
But it is Obama who issued the order and owns this disgraceful decision to align the U.S. with the totalitarian Islamic theocracies in the U.S. and to weaken Israel.  This despicable decision is further evidence, if any was needed,  that  Obama is not only the “First Black U.S. President” he is also the “Worst U.S. President.” 
 
Now that his presidency has ended and he can’t run again, watch Obama campaign, overtly and as well as covertly, to be elected Secretary General of the U.N. He will be able to tell the Muslim nations which have numerical superiority in the General Assembly to remember how he sided with them in his presidency,  from his “Apology For America Tour” and  kowtowing to Islam “Cairo Speech” in the beginning of his presidency in 2009, to the U.S. action in the U.N.on Dec. 23, 2016.
 
President-elect Donald Trump denounced this anti-Israel dirty deal of Obama and the U.N. and promised that American policy will change on July 20, 2016, when he is inaugurated as President. Not a minute too soon.
 
This shameful overt anti-Israeli U.N. action, which manifestly strengthens and supports totalitarian Islamic governments and Islamic terrorist organizations, and weakens Israel — the only democracy and America’s only true ally in the Middle East — is an infamous betrayal of America as well as of Israel.
 
It should be the last straw for  “We, the People” of America regarding the value of the U.N. as presently constituted; and regarding “the value,” first and foremost, of  Barak Hussein Obama and his “historic election as the first black president,” as well as  “the value” of Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and the other leaders of the Democrat party who supported and are responsible for this disgrace in the U.N.

Environy: Global Warming Event Postponed Due to Snow

The same people who were in lock step with Al Gore as he predicted the “true planetary emergency point of no return“–for 2016, the sea levels wiping out American beach front homes, increasing tornadoes, hurricanes, melting Arctic ice caps and the extinction of the polar bears, had to cancel an event late last week.

It turns out that the people who believe that man is so powerful that he can change the weather, couldn’t get the weather to cooperate with their global warming news conference.

You’ll note that the news release (compliments of Lars Larson) shows that the global warming crowd has now included in their list of man-made horribles earthquakes. 

Anything to keep the money rolling in, I guess.

 

 

POSTPONED: Mayor Hales and Community Activists to Celebrate Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Ban

Portland, Oregon – Mayor Charlie Hales will join community leaders and activists immediately following the anticipated passage of a new city ordinance that renews Portland’s commitment to strong climate action, lower carbon emissions, effective seismic resilience, a safer Columbia River Gorge, and a safer environment for those in and around Portland. This policy also sends a strong signal about the seriousness of Portland’s commitment to green infrastructure and a transition to clean, renewable energy sources.

The ordinance prohibits the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure that has the capability to transload fossil fuels or is larger than two million gallons in capacity and forbids existing terminals from expanding in size, preventing any further potential damage to their local environment.

This victory is the result of over two years of organizing from local activists and community members committed to the betterment of Portland’s environment and the protection of our neighbors’ health and safety. The ordinance is an important step forward for Portland and should serve as a model for other municipalities and states.

All speakers will be available for a brief question and answer session and interviews immediately following the press conference.

What: Mayor Hales and Community Activists to Celebrate Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Ban

When: To be determined

Where: Portland City Hall Atrium (1221 SW 4th Ave, Portland OR)

This policy was worked on by 350PDX, Audubon Society of Portland, Columbia Riverkeeper, Climate Action Coalition, Friends of the Columbia Gorge, Oregon PSR (Physicians for Social Responsibility), Center for Sustainable Economy, the Oregon Chapter Sierra Club, and more.

The very same people who predicted world wide calamity this year due to man’s influence on the weather, couldn’t get enough cooperation to get rid of the snow.

Remember when the world laughed at Christian charlatans who predicted the world’s demise?

 

Rees Lloyd: TRIBUTE TO JOHN GLENN–INCLUDING RECOGNITION 

John Glenn, Boy Scout, Marine, Astronaut, Senator, Patriot, was a great American hero, and also that very rare being: A great man who was also a good man, a humble man, a man who went to the heavens not only in a space ship, but in his heart, with an abiding faith in God.
There are many many tributes to John Glenn on his passing at age 95 on Dec. 8, 2016, for his heroic achievements. But for me, what struck me was a story I read years ago in the book “Right Stuff” about the Mercury Astronauts. The very “down to earth” story  about Glenn, as a man, as a husband, went like this:
Then Vice President Lyndon Johnson decided that a great publicity opportunity presented itself should Johnson go to Glenn’s home to comfort Mrs. Glenn while John was off on astronaut duty with the whole country watching in anticipation. So, Johnson arrived in his limousine and his entourage, including media, at the Glenn home.
John’s wife, however, was very shy, including about a stutter in her speech, and did not want to have to participate in any media event. So, she wouldn’t let Vice President Johnson in. Instead, she locked the door and telephoned John, informing him of what was going on and that it distressed her.
John Glenn, whom the media dubbed “the Boy Scout among the Mercury Astronauts,” knew, of course, that embarrassing the Vice President could mean the end of Glenn’s Astronaut career. So, what did Glenn do? He stood up for his wife, no matter the risk of outraging Vice President Johnson and ending John’s career. John told his wife not to let Johnson in, and went on to raise holy hell that Johnson would do what he did to the distress of Mrs. Glenn, which would not be tolerated even if Johnson was Vice President.
John Glenn had incredible courage, indeed — from sitting alone atop the Mercury when there was a very high risk that he might die at any moment from an explosion at blastoff (one in four attempts failed), in Space, or coming home. But he also had the courage, the manly chivalry, to stand up in defense of his wife, even though the offender was the Vice President of the U.S. who had the power to end Glenn’s career in a peeve.
So, Mrs. Glenn remained inside behind her locked door as the uninvited visitor, VP Lyndon Johnson, sat outside stewing in embarrassment as the Boy Scout, Marine, Astronaut, American Hero — the “Man,” John Glenn, would not retreat. “What a man,” as used to be said of such men as John Glenn “back in the day” in the pre-Feminist Movement emasculation of American males.
John Glenn survived his Mercury flight, the first American to orbit the earth in space, and survived his face-down with the Vice President of the U.S. in defense of his wife’s right to choose with whom to speak, when, and how. That was perhaps a “little thing,” a small act in the scope of all that John Glenn did in a magnificent, honorable, heroic life, including returning to outer space at the age of 77. But that “little thing,” standing up for his wife no matter the risk to his career, perhaps a relatively small act among John Glenn’s many heroic acts, meant a lot to me when I first read it, and now. That love, that marriage of the Glenns, lasted seventy (70) years by the time of John Glenn’s death.
John Glenn was an extraordinary American hero, but he was also what American men used to be: First and foremost– “A Protector.” Males willing to do what is necessary to protect others, including females, no matter the consequences (and no matter the shrieks and howls of the politically correct elitists and the feminists (i.e., female supremacists) perpetually aggrieved by manliness).
John Glenn, a great and good man, a humble heroTRIBUTE TO JOHN GLENN–INCLUDING RECOGNITION , said his historic Mercury flight into space, a great leap forward in science, made his faith in God stronger, not weaker. May the God John Glenn served now embrace and keep him; may the country which he served always honor and never forget him. Godspeed, John Glenn. Godspeed.

As Long as Dems Are at it: ‘Recount’ California

As long as the Democrats continue their see-saw, Chinatown duplicity on voter fraud–there IS voter fraud, there is NO voter fraud–let’s just find out once and for all, shall we?

Recently, Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton’s campaign alleged voter fraud in only three states, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan–all typical Democratic party strongholds–until Donald Trump came along.

Ms. Stein received 1% of the vote in all three states but, as ABC News put it, wanted a recount to check the integrity of the vote:

“Stein, who received about 1 percent of the vote in all three states, says her intent is to verify the accuracy of the vote. She has suggested, with no evidence, that votes cast were susceptible to computer hacking.”

Mind you, the candidate who stood absolutely no chance of winning and then received 1% of the vote wanted a recount to … verify the accuracy of 1% of the vote?

Obviously not. Stein is a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton.

The two presidential candidates demanded recounts, alleging that somehow, if you squint your eyes and turn around three times, that the Russian government had penetrated the voting machines in the three states’ separate voting systems and had swung the vote for Donald Trump.

Though the candidates had evidence with all the weight of a box of hair, the media and the Democrats, but I repeat myself*, seized upon the mere request for recounts as prima facie evidence that obviously something was amiss–especially since Hillary Clinton lost a race the media predicted her win.

The speculation about the Russians potentially hacking voting systems began last summer when Senate minority leader Harry Reid set the media bait for the story by asking the FBI to investigate if such a hypothetical situation was possible.

Having no time to report on real FBI investigations apparently, the New York Times promptly transcribed a story with all the stability of Galloping Gertie: 

The Senate minority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, asked the F.B.I. on Monday to investigate evidence suggesting that Russia may try to manipulate voting results in November.

In a letter to the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey Jr., Mr. Reid wrote that the threat of Russian interference “is more extensive than is widely known and may include the intent to falsify official election results.” Recent classified briefings from senior intelligence officials, Mr. Reid said in an interview, have left him fearful that President Vladimir V. Putin’s “goal is tampering with this election.”

Now in fairness, note that at the time, hackers had been conducting a slo-mo bloodletting of the Democratic Party. First, with the email leaks of the Democratic National Committee, which led to the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The emails showed Ms. Wasserman-Schultz used the apparatus of the DNC to sabotage Bernie Sanders’s campaign in favor of Mrs. Clinton. After Wasserman-Schultz was drummed out, she confirmed her ardor for Hillary and joined the Clinton camp.

The leaks of Hillary Clinton intimate and campaign chair John Podesta also revealed embarrassing  inside information.

USA Today reports the “juiciest” emails were ones in which Clinton insiders mocked  white people, Catholics, “needy Latinos”, and disparaged Christians in general. They revealed that the #2 at the DNC and CNN contributor* was leaking debate questions to Mrs. Clinton. Worse, they showed seeming collusion with the Justice Department over the probe into Mrs. Clinton’s private server and leak of classified information.

Many people believed that Russian hackers were behind the leaks.

Things were looking pretty bad for the Democrats. They were squirming. This was the only time that Democrats conceded publicly that, gosh, hacking emails is a bad, bad thing (see Democrats’ response to Republicans holding hearings about Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email server).

Fast forward to the ‘champagne anyone?’ November 8th Hillary Clinton loss, and as quickly as you can say ‘voter ID is  voter suppression,’ Jill Stein bagged a few mil to order recounts, you know, for voter integrity’s sake.

But this  Hail Mary effort is a three-fer.

For the Democrats it could net Mrs. Clinton more popular or even more electoral votes. For another, the rhythmic media story line about electoral votes vis a vis popular vote may help marginalize Donald Trump and his mandate to get things done, if only for the Mother Jones or The Nation crowd.

But the third pay off is that Republicans have been handed by leftists and the media, the moral authority to ask for more election integrity, including voter ID.

Jill Stein has already established that it doesn’t matter if the candidate didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, the question about the ‘integrity’ of the process is all the pretext one needs.

So bring it on. And let’s start with California.

President-elect Trump took incoming fire when he made the above statements about voter fraud. The media portrayed him as kooky, out-of-touch, having “no evidence,” and engaging in a flight of fancy or whatever pejorative they could ascribe to him.

But the thing is, Trump was right when he said,

“Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California-so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias-big problem!”

And the group, True the Vote, agreed with him, issuing a statement:

vote-true-the-vote

The statement read:

HOUSTON, TX. – November 27, 2016: True the Vote (TTV), the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released a statement with respect to President-Elect Donald Trump’s claim that “millions” of individuals illegally voted in the 2016 Election.

“True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trump’s recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.”

True the Vote (TTV) is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) voters’ rights organization, founded to inspire and equip voters for involvement at every stage of our electoral process. TTV empowers organizations and individuals across the nation to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation.

As I pointed out in my story for Independent Journal Review on prosecuted voter fraud cases, they are but an infinitesimal number of the actual, suspected cases of voter fraud.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation conducted a limited study–limited by government officials–demonstrating that more than 1000 illegal voters cast ballots in only eight counties. All tolled, the illegal voters voted 300 times.

As voter fraud expert and journalist John Fund pointed out about the limited Virginia study:

He was able to get voter-registration records from eight of Virginia’s 133 cities and counties, and found 1046 illegal aliens who were illegally registered to vote. In the decade between 2005 and 2015, a number of those aliens had voted some 300 times.

Imagine if the organization had been able to match actual voters with voting records in all 95 Virginia counties.

As John Fund also pointed out in National Review, early on the Obama administration has instructed its lawyers to look the other way on voter fraud cases, even though Pew Research showed millions of voters registered to vote in two states or whose information is outdated on the existing voter rolls:

Even though that’s a rich vein of potential mischief for fraudsters, the Obama administration hasn’t filed a single lawsuit in eight years demanding that counties clean up their voter rolls, as they are required to do by the federal “motor voter” law. I’ve spoken to three Justice Department lawyers who attended a meeting on Nov. 30, 2009, in which they claim then-deputy assistant attorney general Julie Fernandez said the DOJ would not be enforcing that provision of the motor voter law because it ran counter to the law’s overall goal of “increasing turnout.” (Ms. Fernandez did not respond to repeated requests for comment.) [emphasis added]

As I also pointed out in my piece, the head of California Election Integrity Project, Linda Paine, told me that voter fraud is a natural by product of California’s laissez faire policy of letting everybody vote.  It is the actual carrying out of the Obama desire to “increase turnout” by doing nothing to stop fraud:

“What we’ve documented in California is a systemic failure in the voting process. By not enforcing existing rules on verifying voters, registrars erode the integrity of the process.

 There’s an overall manipulation of the voter process, including lax statewide standards, that allow people to be impersonated at the polls. And because poll workers don’t check signatures or ID, there [is] almost no way to catch it — unless they choose to.”

Those who would be willing to manipulate the voting process can do it.

It’s got so many open doors to fraud that it’s like Swiss cheese.”

Indeed, she says they don’t even bother calling it “voter fraud” anymore. It’s really “voter impersonation” and it happens all the time in California. How often? We have no idea because:

“You cannot actually catch a person who is doing an impersonation at the polls.”

But, you can tell where and how they’re doing it.

As Paine told me for another piece in Independent Journal Review on how this is done, outside of every polling place is something called the street index. As I wrote:

The list is a trove of information. The names, addresses, and party affiliations of every registered voter in that precinct is displayed. People who have already voted have their names crossed out.

Paine says the mischief starts at 4-5 p.m. in the afternoon. Anyone can avail himself of the Street Index, find out who hasn’t voted, write down that individual’s name and address, and go to the poll and pretend to be that person. Because no identification is required in some places, there’s no way to catch an impersonator.

voter

And where is it happening? Not necessarily at the same polling place where the frauds get the info. They pick up a telephone and call or screenshot with their smart phone the information from the street index and phone it to their buddies somewhere else, such as Los Angeles because, as Paine told me:

“LA County says they count 90% of provisional ballots.

And LA COUNTY had 4.8 million registered voters in  2012 and 5.078 million this year.

If I were going to impersonate a voter, I’d go to LA County and do it.”

Even more telling?

“California has 40% of all provisional ballots voted nation wide.

Registrars have been told not to worry about it because it takes too long to verify [legitimate voters].”

Paine’s group has submitted its evidence to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. After a year’s review, it was forwarded to Washington, D.C. where Paine says nothing has been done.

Provisional ballots cover only federal races, so in a presidential election year, they’re very important.

So, as long as we’re going for recounts, let’s ask for one in California.

But let’s not stop there. Let’s match votes with voters and find out how many people had their identities stolen–fraudulently hijacked by what is clearly an organized crime outfit to steal the vote by impersonating voters.

After all, as presidential candidate Jill Stein and her new friend Hillary Clinton have established,  it’s all about election integrity and verifying the vote.

Let the recount and investigation begin.
