CAIR leader lies: “Islamic State is not Islamic”
September 13, 2014
This week, in a one hour interview with Bret Baier on Fox News titled “13 Hours” we heard first person accounts from the brave men who fought there of what actually happened during those hours of the attack on the U. S. Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. The three men were CIA contractors whose job as part of the annex security team was to protect CIA case officers and personnel at the annex.
Around 9:30 pm that evening they got a call from their team leader that the consulate was under attack. The three were ready to go within five minutes of that first call, but were told to stand down or wait three separate times. After repeated calls from within the compound for help, and almost half an hour later, they disobeyed the stand down orders. Kris “Tanto” Paronto requested the support of a drone to provide eyes above and an AC-130 for protection and fire power, and he, along with Mark “Oz” Geist and John “Tig” Tiegen, headed towards the compound.
Their harrowing account of the events of that evening and early into the next day remove all doubt the stand down or wait orders resulted in the deaths of U. S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U. S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, along with CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty. To watch the full interview, click here.
In addition, we also recently found out about a failed Special Operations mission to rescue journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff from their ISIS captors on July 4th, 2014. Against an enemy known to be constantly on the move to avoid their whereabouts being discovered and raided, we now know President Obama dithered and waited for over a month before authorizing the rescue operation that would have saved these Americans from their very savage and very public beheadings. When he did finally authorize the mission it was to take place on July 4th, 2014, with the president obviously hoping to reap the political fanfare and publicity of a successful mission occurring on America’s Independence Day. Sadly, when the extraction team arrived they found the place empty. The hostages and their captors had moved…evidently quite recently.
America has the best military in the world. Our Special Forces operators are the most highly specialized and trained warriors on the planet. Time and again their missions have been heralded during this administration, going back to Vice President Joe Biden lauding Seal Team Six for the successful raid and killing of Osama bin Laden. I don’t recall any other time in our history when their actions have been made so public, while understanding all too well that secrecy is integral to successful Special Forces operations.
Speaking with a retired Special Forces officer after watching 13 Hours he agreed with the CIA contractors that the stand down order and the thirty minute delay cost the lives of U. S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods, and Glen Doherty. Which leaves one to wonder, after hearing the account of what happened on the night of September 11, 2012, why weren’t our Special Forces teams sent in to rescue the ambassador and the others? By all accounts this would have been a successful mission, and one the president could have capitalized on days before his reelection. If he really is all about the “optics” this should have been an easy decision for him. Instead he watched in real time as our people were murdered, knowing all he had to do was give the order to go in and our teams would have taken it from there.
No, there is more we need to know about Benghazi. After repeatedly requesting more protection from the State Department; after a failed assassination attempt on the British ambassador and the Tunisian consulate being stormed in June; after Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens both recording events and their concerns about the growing presence of al-Qaeda in the area; why were these requests denied? There is a reason our people were held back from rescuing Ambassador Stevens and the others on September 11, 2012. What was going on that was so scandalous that the decision was made to permit Americans to be murdered rather than have the world discover the truth of the activities that were taking place in Benghazi? Who directed “Bob” at the CIA to issue the wait and stand down orders? We must demand answers from President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It really does make a difference.
Below is another great commentary from Bill Whittle of Afterburner: President Coward. While I agree the actions of our president are the actions of a coward, I believe the actions of the president surrounding the events of Benghazi go beyond cowardice to the cover up of something else that was going on at the consulate. We must push our legislators to pursue this until we get the truth.

As we see American journalists being beheaded on video by Islamic extremists; as we hear the horrors of Muslims and non-Muslims alike tortured, raped, sold off as slaves or brides, and murdered in the most unimaginable ways; is this all a distraction keeping us from focusing on the greater threat to the freedom of all mankind? Trevor Loudon discusses the Russian threat and their ties to and support for radical Islam. He explains the vital piece in expanding the Russian empire is Ukraine. If Russia conquers Ukraine, Europe will quickly fall.
Please listen to this interview and discussion and share with friends and family members. I challenge Libertarians to listen with an open mind to how you are being played by the very progressives you say you oppose. This is no longer a chess game, where one piece moves at a time. There are many pieces moving at once in an effort to distract, divert, and overwhelm.

On August 9th, 2014, 18 year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. More than two weeks later, despite unrelenting media coverage, this is still the only fact we know.
The tension in this community between its predominantly black population and the predominantly white Ferguson police department appears to have been simmering for a long time. The usual race baiters arrived on the scene expressing outrage at the “execution” of this gentle giant by the police officer and demanding justice. While they say they want peace and justice, the only justice that will satisfy them is the conviction of police officer Darren Wilson.
The entire country, in fact the entire world, looks on as America’s ongoing struggles with racism take the forefront in the tragic shooting death of a young black man by a white police officer.
Not only have the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton inserted themselves and their divisive rhetoric into this volatile environment. President Obama actually took time from his vacation to make a statement, expressing his and Michelle’s condolences to Brown’s family over the heartbreaking death of their son. Attorney General Eric Holder and his very selective Department of Justice determined this to be a case worthy of investigation, conducting a dual investigation along with local officials. His words to the black community expressing his personal experiences with racism and racial profiling tip the scales of justice towards a bias that should cause great concern to every American. The FBI launched a civil rights investigation, putting more than 40 agents on the ground in Ferguson.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called for a complete and fair investigation, justice for the Brown family, and also vigorous prosecution of the case.
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal called for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch to be replaced by a special prosecutor believing he cannot possibly be impartial because of his ties to law enforcement and the fact that his police officer father was killed by a black man. She has also said if there is not a conviction, to “be prepared for the entire city to have looting.”
Governor Nixon (D), Attorney General Eric Holder (D), and Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D), along with the Revs. Jackson and Sharpton, have pre-determined the guilt of police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown.
The decision to prosecute the police officer will be political, because when it comes to issues of race, Eric Holder is right. We are a nation of cowards. As long as insisting that justice be based on facts and evidence alone is deemed racist, as long as we allow the race baiters to continue to pick at old wounds and not allow for healing, as long as people continue to threaten violence if “justice” does not go their way, America will continue to be divided by the progressive politics of race.
Below is a video from Bill Whittle of Afterburner speaking on the real epidemic of racial violence in America.

It began with a guest appearance by then administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Lisa P. Jackson on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart back in April of 2010. During their discussion she stated that they were waiting for the price of carbon to be established so that we could meet our commitments to the country and the entire world. What? What exactly are our commitments to the country and the entire world? Some research and digging into this seemingly innocuous statement led to some pretty interesting albeit disturbing discoveries.
On June 14, 1992 the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At this conference, referred to as the Rio Earth Summit, the participants crafted a blueprint for the world, commonly known as Agenda 21. In its preamble, Agenda 21, Chapter 1 states:
“Humanity stands at a defining moment in history. We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them will lead to the fulfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can – in a global partnership for sustainable development.”
In other words, the goal of the United Nations is social and economic justice through a redistribution of wealth scheme using the threat of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming or climate change to implement the market based solution of carbon emissions trading. The International Monetary Fund proposed a plan for a Green Fund to achieve this goal.
Following the Earth Summit President George H. W. Bush declared: “Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced – a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.” – signed by G.H. Bush, 1992
Despite pressure from the United Nations partners, U.S. delegates did not sign on to the convention.
On June 29, 1993 President Clinton issued Executive Order 12852 establishing the President’s Council on Sustainable Development as a result of the Rio Earth Summit in an effort to cooperate and implement the goals of Agenda 21. Our obligations to the world through a treaty never ratified by our Senate are being implemented through presidential executive orders.
During George W. Bush’s two terms as President he continued to further the goals of this United Nations agenda, following his father’s lead and continuing the work of President Clinton.
Why is all of this important? This ties in directly with the push for cap and trade legislation that has been floating around the House and Senate for many years. When Congress failed to pass a bill, on May 14, 2010 the E.P.A. unveiled their rules to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from the largest industrial facilities, with a phased in approach that began on January 1, 2011. As a result we are hearing about the many coal plants that are being forced to shut down in the next few years because they cannot meet these emissions reduction numbers, and it will be too expensive to retrofit their plants. President Obama announced new CAFÉ standards for automobiles that will require them to achieve 36.5 miles to the gallon by 2016 and 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. The talking points are that this will help us achieve energy security and reduce our use of foreign oil. But the truth is that the United States has committed to the United Nations and its partners to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and these CAFÉ standards will have to be met in order to achieve this goal. The taxes on carbon dioxide emissions, along with other implemented market based solutions, are being funneled through the United Nations to other U.N. member countries.
When cap and trade legislation failed to pass, then Senator John Kerry (D-MA) said: “The Obama administration has again reminded Washington that if Congress won’t legislate, the EPA will regulate. Those who have spent years stalling need to understand: killing a Senate bill is no longer success. And if Congress won’t legislate a solution the EPA will regulate one, and it will come without the help to America’s business and consumers contained in the American Power Act.” Senator Kerry replaced Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Obama Administration, both tasked with the responsibility of redistributing the wealth of the American people to other developing United Nations member countries through USAID.
Americans must realize how much of our tax money is being sent overseas to meet our commitments to the global community under a treaty never ratified by this country but implemented through presidential executive orders and cabinet departments like the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department.
