Obama Promised a ‘Civilian National Security Force’ – Today There Are Over 120,000 Armed Federal Agents

In 2008, Barack Obama announced his plan to build a massive “civilian national security force” here in America. It would be just as well funded as the US military.

Today in America there are over 120,000 armed federal agents who work for 40 different agencies.
FOX News reported:

The recent uproar over armed EPA agents descending on a tiny Alaska mining town is shedding light on the fact that 40 federal agencies – including nearly a dozen typically not associated with law enforcement — have armed divisions.

The agencies employ about 120,000 full-time officers authorized to carry guns and make arrests, according to a June 2012 Justice Department report.

Though most Americans know agents within the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Federal Bureau of Prisons carry guns, agencies such as the Library of Congress and Federal Reserve Board employing armed officers might come as a surprise.

The incident that sparked the renewed interest and concern occurred in late August when a team of armed federal and state officials descended on the tiny Alaska gold mining town of Chicken, Alaska.

The Environmental Protection Agency, whose armed agents in full body armor participated, acknowledged taking part in the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force investigation, which it said was conducted to look for possible violations of the Clean Water Act.

 

 

‘Domestic Terrorists’ Rally at Nevada Ranch

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 11:57 PM

The far left have found their terrorists and they run a ranch in Nevada.
Gates of Vienna describes the situation:

A man named Harry Reid represents the state of Nevada in the United States Senate. As Senate Majority Leader, he also holds one of the most powerful political offices in Washington. His former top aide heads the Bureau of Land Management, which mounted an offensive operation against the Bundy ranch earlier this month using armed agents, armored vehicles, and snipers. His son Rory represents the Chinese energy company that plans to build a huge solar panel plant on public land in the Nevada desert, as soon as the last of those annoying cattle ranchers can be evicted from real estate controlled by the federal government. The only thing standing between the Reid dynasty and the realization of its lucrative dream is a single cattle ranch near the town of Bunkerville, plus an undetermined number of dedicated and well-armed patriots who have gathered to guard it for the past several weeks.

Senator Reid is understandably frustrated with the situation in Bunkerville. Several times over past week he has referred to Oath Keepers and other patriotic groups as “domestic terrorists”, and their actions as “domestic terrorism”.

The following graphic, borrowed from Sipsey Street Irregulars, highlights the capricious nomenclature employed the federal government when it talks about “terrorism”:

Rev. Franklin Graham: If You Want to Practice Sharia Law, Go Back to Where You Came From (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 7:38 PM

Rev. Franklin Graham reminded Muslims this Easter season that if they want to practice sharia law they should go back to where they came from.

CNS News reported:

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –”

Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely afraid of it. No question about it, because there’s no tolerance in Sharia law. It persecutes those that do not believe in Islam.”

Not a joke.
North Korea is protesting a London hair salon’s advertisement implying the young dictator has a bad hairstyle.
AFP reported:

North Korea has written an official letter of complaint to Britain over a London hair salon’s advert implying leader Kim Jong-Un has a bad hairstyle, the Foreign Office confirmed Thursday.
The Stalinist state has failed to see the funny side of a discount haircuts advert featuring Kim at the M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London.

The poster featured a large picture of Kim with his distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo and the slogan: “Bad hair day? 15 percent off all gent cuts through the month of April.”

British police intervened after North Korean embassy officials paid a visit to the salon and told hairdresser Mo Nabbach to take down the “disrespectful” poster from the window.
Besides turning up in person, the North Korean embassy in London has also written to the Foreign Office demanding action.

According to media reports, North Korean men are ordered to get Kim Jong Un-style haircuts late last month.

 

CHEROKEE TRIBE MEMBERS to Confront Phony Indian Elizabeth Warren on Book Tour

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 2:11 PM

Democrat Elizabeth Warren was exposed as a fraud when she claimed for years that she was Cherokee Indian.

paleface warren

During her campaign for senator Cherokee Indian activists traveled to Massachusetts to confront Warren on her fraudulent past.
But Warren would not meet with them.

Legal Insurrection reported:

In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee.  Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.”

In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee.  ReadElizabeth Warren Wiki, and these posts responding to the claims in her book:

Warren will be launching a nationwide book tour.  Someone who wants to meet Warren is Twila Barnes.

Barnes is the Cherokee Genealogist whose groundbreaking genealogical research exposed the falsehood to Warren’s claims. Barnes and her team of Cherokee genealogists traced Warren’s family lines back to the early 1800s and documented that Warren’s family not only was not Cherokee or other Native American, but also that they never lived as such.

Now this…
The Cherokee tribe members said this week they look forward to confronting Warren on her book tour this month.
Sounds like great fun.

 

Medicaid Paid $12 Million for 2,900 Dead People in Illinois

A government memo revealed this week that Medicaid had paid over $12 million to 2,900 dead people in Illinois.
FOX News reported:

The Illinois Medicaid program paid an estimated $12 million for medical services for people listed as deceased in other state records, according to an internal state government memo.

The memo dated Friday, which The Associated Press obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, says the state auditor compared clients enrolled in the Medicaid database last June with state death records dating back to 1970. Auditors identified overpayments for services to roughly 2,900 people after the date of their deaths.

The heads of the departments of Healthcare and Family Services and Human Services, the two state agencies involved with Medicaid payments, outline steps to fix the problem in the memo to their senior staffs.

The memo states that more than $7 million has been recovered and the rest is expected to be recouped by year’s end.

Sen. Dale Righter, a Republican from Mattoon and the Senate GOP’s point person on Medicaid reform, said the finding was further evidence that Democrats’ arguments that they have done all they can to clean up the Medicaid rolls is “empty rhetoric.”

ANOTHER LIE: Obama Promised No New Taxes on Middle Class – But He’s Proposed 442 New Taxes (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 10:26 AM

Another Obama Lie.
Candidate Barack Obama repeatedly promised Americans that he would not raise taxes for Americans making less than $250,000 a year.

Well that wasn’t true.
A new report for Americans for Tax Reform found that Obama has proposed a whopping 442 tax increases since taking office.

Forbes on FOX reported:

Is it any surprise then that over 60% of Americans believe Obama lies on big issues?

 

Rand Paul: Harry Reid’s “Domestic Terrorist” Rhetoric Will Lead to Violence (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 9:57 AM

Senator Rand Paul scolded Democrat Harry Reid last night for rhetoric Paul claims will lead to violence. Harry Reid called the Bundy Ranch supporters “domestic terrorists” several times this week after the standoff last weekend.
Via Hannity:

The Daily Caller reported:

Republican Senator Rand Paul called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to “calm the rhetoric” on Cliven Bundy, arguing the Nevada senator’s “domestic terrorist” comment was “liable to stir up” the situation and lead to violence.

The Kentucky senator spoke Thursday night with Fox News’ Eric Bolling, who was filling in for Sean Hannity. “Is there any need to call Americans domestic terrorists?” Bolling asked.

“No, I think what we should all be calling for is for calmer heads to prevail,” Paul said. “I don’t want to see violence on either side.”

“There is a legitimate constitutional question here about whether the state should be in charge of endangered species or whether the federal government should be,” Paul admitted. “But I don’t think calling people names is going to calm this down.”

“I think it’s liable to stir it up,” he continued. “So I think all parties — including Senator Reid — should calm the rhetoric a little bit. Let’s try to have a peaceful resolution to this.”

 

Democrats Urged Not to Use Word “Recovery” in 2014 Election Cycle

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 9:45 AM

The US is experiencing its worst recovery in history resulting from bad policy.

Obama and Democrats own the worst recovery in US history.
That’s why Democrats are being warned not to use the word “recovery” in the 2014 election cycle.
The AP reported:

Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don’t talk about the economic recovery. It’s a political loser.

So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over “how much trouble people are in, and doesn’t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face.”

In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word “recovery” is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven’t worked.

Coincidentally or not, Democrats have largely shelved the “R” word.

President Barack Obama’s only utterance of it in recent weeks was on April 8, and it was in the context of accusing Republicans of blocking progress on issues that “would help with the economic recovery and help us grow faster.”

Additionally, at a news conference on March 26 where they announced a campaign-season agenda, neither Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., nor most of the other five lawmakers present uttered the word “recovery.”

Oh, and don’t mention “Obamacare” either.
That’s a real stinker.
