Bundy brothers among 8 arrested, 1 dead near Malheur

BURNS, Ore. (KOIN) — One person died and 8 were arrested — including militia leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy — after the FBI and the Oregon State Police intercepted the group along Highway 395.

The militants were heading to a community meeting in John Day when they were confronted by authorities.

Shots were fired after FBI agents, Oregon State Police and other authorities made the stop. It is unclear who opened fire first.

In a statement, the FBI said one person who was “a subject of a federal probable cause arrest” was killed. That person killed was later identified as Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum, the de facto spokesman for the militia, CNN confirmed.

Obama Gave GPS Coordinates to #Iran #USSTruman #Sailors #WWIII #GITMO10 [4VIDEOS]

10 High Risk GITMO terrorists were released one day after Iran’s IRGC released the ten kidnapped US Navy Sailors. Coincidence?


Obama ordered the 10 Muslim terrorists to be temporarily kept at Oman before being released back into battle. Oman is right next to Yemen a hotbed for ISIS training camps and is an Islamic military stronghold.


US sailors were allegedly 50 miles off course however there is normal Navy protocol to get an assist from fellow Navy in vicinity, even French ships were nearby ready to assist if called upon. No, this wasn’t a case of two lost armed US Navy Riverines, this looks like a set up by Obama to place his own Navy in danger to help Iran’s propaganda continue showing US to  be weak and helpless in Iranian waters.

Other Navy Command ships nearby did not hear the request for help. Communications were said to have been down. They were captured by Iran’s IRGC which Obama reportedly did call to inform Iran US sailors needed assistance. Obama allegedly gave our enemy Iran our US Navy’s exact coordinates who went and picked them up, then blindfolded them after filming all their identities. Wonder if those Sailors knew they would be held hostage for 16 hours before being released back to USS Truman aircraft carrier. All ten are being debriefed in Qatar as is normally done in hostage situations. It is not clear if Iran absconded with the two Riverine boats and all the enclosed secret technology. Iran definitely violated the Geneva convention. Obama is a Traitor to our Republic USA. And Allen West is right. We are in WWIII.

Secretary Ash Carter said, “It was a navigational error.” Jennifer Griffin on Greta states there was no sign of mechanical failure on either boat and neither boat attempted to communicate. Iran fired ballistic missiles nearby several days back with no consequences and then allegedly got precise coordinates presumably by Obama himself as stated in Ash Carter’s public press briefing. Iran’s forces proceeded to have their missiles lock onto USS Truman aircraft carrier with armed missiles.

In the meantime, while ten Sailors were unsure of their fate or the fate of their carrier ship USS Truman, Obama ordered ten high level Muslim monster terrorists to be released. They were released and sent to Oden temporarily, supposedly in custody. Oman borders Yemen which is a terror hotbed. Obama also announced that he will release 30 more GITMO Muslim Islamic terrorists by this summer.

#BreakingNews Iran Locked Missiles On Target> #USSTruman Sailors Held Hostage @USNavy

Breaking  News Now! Reliable reports say Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi had his forces IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps) missiles locked on target, The USSTruman aircraft carrier. It is the exact same ship that the US Sailors were taken from and held hostage by Iran. They were subsequently released after being forced onto their knees and apologizing. Were they ordered to surrender? It is not like our US military to surrender or apologize. Were there missiles aimed at the USS Truman before and during the Sailors abduction and not just afterwards? Were the Sailors trying to save the entire ship and all crew aboard? Original reports stated that two of the smaller Navy vessels originally dispatched for unknown reasons were experiencing mechanical problems, identical ones. It was then theorized by many that Iran must have emitted an EMP or had gotten the electrical computer codes somehow to remotely disable the boats. The story keeps changing. We are seeking the truth behind these incidents which appear to be related somehow (i.e 10 Sailors held hostage with missiles pointed at The USS Truman and the subsequent release today of 10 high level GITMO terrorists  by the Obama administration.)

Colonel Allen West seems to agree that something really odd is up here,

The result of two U.S. Navy vessels being boarded and seized by an enemy – which is what the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Navy is – is disturbing. The images and video they took depicting our sailors on their knees in the position of surrender is damning. This, folks, is an act of war, and our sailors were captured. Let’s not try and use “nuanced” language.

Iran had missiles locked on US warships, ready to fire

After release of sailors, Navy Commander says Iran had aircraft carrier in range, ready to ‘destroy’ inflicting ‘historical catastrophe.

Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Wednesday, shortly after Iran released ten US sailors it had captured the day before after they strayed into Iranian waters due to a technical malfunction, that his forces were ready to blow US warships out of the water.

Fadavi, of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) navy, warned that his forces were “awaiting orders” to shoot their coast-to-sea missiles at the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, which together with a French aircraft carrier and additional warships was maneuvering near Iranian waters, uncertain over the fate of the captive sailors.

&

“The USS Truman Aircraft carrier showed unprofessional moves for 40 minutes after the detention of the trespassers, while we were highly prepared with our coast-to-sea missiles, missile-launching speedboats and our numerous capabilities” and were ready to strike, Fadavi said according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

US.Sailors.Iran.Released.1.13.2016

By M. Katherine Orts Pastor’s wife to David A. Orts @Pushbacknow “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth”

Dear Fellow Citizens of The Republic of The United States,

We invite your news tips, comments, if you “see something please say something” to somebody trustworthy to help protect each one of us, our families, co-workers, friends and neighbors. Each one of us must aim for excellence in our individual talents making the most of our time, being good stewards, faithful in our collective and individual callings, helping every loyal US citizen to rise to greatness for every fellow American and every true ally, especially our Mid-East ally Israel, for Father Jehovah God’s Glory in the name of Jesus “Yeshua Ha Mashiach” Word of God Made Flesh and in the Power and Might of The Holy Spirit “for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14

A reliable intel source pointed me in the direction of a recently written article, and in my opinion had not yet widely been circulated or connected to the US Sailors plight. My source states that certain politicians will eventually acknowledge that these two incidents “are interconnected.”

Is it a ludicrous “coincidence” that in this same week, of releasing 10 GITMO Muslim high risk Islamic jihadist terrorists, The Islamic Republic of Iran, was allowed to publicly, and for all time record books, humiliate ten (10) of our US Armed Servicemen and one servicewoman who were held hostage?

Trump.on.Sailors.1.13.2016

Thank God all ten Sailors were safely released back to our US Navy.

But…

Who allowed or ordered Iran to force our heroes on their knees to apologize? Did this Commander apologize on his own behalf or others? Was this Sailor, or all, threatened with torture or death by Islamic Iran? This is not our fighting style America. We wish no soldier ever to be in this position. We need more facts to judge rightly.

 

How was it that it was somehow the @USNavy ‘s fault that Iran was inconvenienced to capture ten (10) of our best in two identically electronically disabled boats? Was there an EMP? Or as The Savage Nation talk show host, author and botanist DR. Michael Savage stated on his show last night asked if someone, maybe Obama himself, gave Iran access codes to US Navy boats?

Who, where, why, what and when exactly were our US Sailors set up? Were they to be used as pawns? To be traded as assets by Obama and his administration?

10 US Sailor heroes > for 10 Muslim monster Islamic #Manimals murderers intent on continuing Jihad wherever able upon their release.

The U.S. military is preparing a bulk transfer of 10 detainees on Thursday from its detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two defense officials told Fox News.

The transfer, amounting to about 10 percent of the remaining prisoners, marks the largest group of detainees to be shipped out of the camp since Defense Secretary Ash Carter informed Congress in December his department would transfer a wave of detainees at the beginning of 2016.

The accelerated transfers reflect a renewed effort by the president – who is likely to highlight the issue in the State of the Union address Tuesday night – to shutter the controversial prison camp. But the moves have heightened security concerns, as some of the latest detainees being shipped out were deemed medium- or high-risk prisoners.

“All these guys are the ‘hardcore’ type; if not, they would have been transferred earlier,” said one official familiar with the list of those being transferred Thursday.

The upcoming transfer would bring the number of detainees moved out of the camp this year to 14; the administration is looking to transfer a total of 17 in the coming weeks. Right, now, there are 103 detainees remaining at the camp, and all have ties to Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups.

#SOTU “QWAWGMIRE” Obama’s Future 5YR Plans #USA Line Up w/ ISIS/OIC/UN/Islam Millennium Death Plans

world-on-fire-the-end

By M. Katherine Orts – Pastor’s Wife to David A. Orts – Artwork/Photo credit by David A. Orts

Quagmire is not pronounced “qwawgmire” Mr.Obama.

Something bothered me more than all the usual repetitious self back patting, faux accomplishments and regal declarations coming out of POTUS’ mouth such as “We have to change how the system works” in tonight’s final SOTU (State of The Union) January 12th, 2016 9pm.

It was the timeline.

“In five years…”

“In ten years…”

Why were those two statements of reaching time line goals for The Republic of The United States of America so troubling?

In five or ten years, Barack Obama will then (hopefully) have no pen or phone, at least one in the Whitehouse Oval office but…

The timelines line up exactly with Islam’s Millennium Goals as outlined by the UN/OIC and ISIS is that same government’s standing army. Its moving, growing and consolidating with all who fight Jihad in the name of Islam, allah and Muhammad globally.

There is danger in this subtle reference of five years and ten years by our POTUS Barack Obama because his loyalty, as We The People have seen, is not to Our Creator God Jesus, as acknowledged in The Declaration of Independence or to our US Constitution but Obama’s loyalty is to his Muslim Brotherhood and all of Islam, which is a Theocratic Military run Government at enmity with God Himself and all Saints.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation heads ISIS and all Islamic jihadi forces around the world via the strongholds of all Islamic Republics as represented by selected delegates in the UN. These “Millennium Development” goals have been repetitively referred to by Obama in all of his UN speeches. The Islamic goals via the UN and the OIC are identical and their intent is to overthrow all of Western civilization and all non Muslim governments in five (5) year incremental time limits or goals.

The closest five year goal is the year 2020. It is the UN/OIC/ISIS=Islamic Caliphate’s ultimate and shared trophy for a global caliphate which will be ruled by one Imam, the 12th Imam, The Madhi who is recognized in all of Islam as Barack The Madhi Hussein Imam Obama. In the Bible he is referred to as The AntiChrist. ISIS is the AntiChrist’s Army making war with all the Saints (Christians and Jews) turning all armies under One World Islamic banner to attack USA and crown jewel Israel, God’s Chosen People in their Promised Land with Jerusalem as her capital.

In prayer, Jesus’ Holy Spirit revealed to me that the Temple has already been desecrated by the Abomination. The Temple is The Body of Christ and the Abomination is The AntiChrist Barack Obama. The Saints are being wearied and killed around the world. Obama has changed times, customs and laws. #WakeUpAmerica

The Paris Agreement is non enforceable yet it was heralded as a great accomplishment in uniting all nations in fight against manmade global climate change. It has a five year end goal.

Something’s Up At The #SOTU #SOTU16 Obama’s Final State of The Union 1.12.2016

It is Obama’s last year in the Whitehouse and his final State of The Union address to the American people yet he wants to focus on the next five years or next ten years as…? Look to the future. What is he up to?

And what’s up with the questionnaire hosted by the WH at the end of the online SOTU? We heard, just today, a radio ad for Americans to contact USA.gov to make their opinions known on what the Whitehouse can do to improve their lives. If this isn’t a veiled effort at collecting mass data like the “Brown shirts” of old, we don’t know what is.  ~ PushBackNow.com

Watch live now:

Obama’s Final State of The Union 1.12.2016 9pm

Six years and 358 days after taking office, President Obama just delivered his last State of the Union address. And in this final year of his presidency, the President has made clear to his staff that he’s keeping his foot on the gas.

There’s already so much the American people have accomplished. Recovering from recession. Rescuing an auto industry. Transforming America into the global leader in fighting climate change. Reforming our healthcare system. Bringing more than 160,000 troops home.

But in his speech tonight, President Obama didn’t focus on the past. He focused on the future.

Instead of simply laying out policy proposals for the next year, the President laid out a set of questions that will define the next generation and beyond.

What are the building blocks we need to give everyone a fair shot at opportunity and security in the new economy?

How do we make technology work for us, and not against us – especially when it comes to solving our biggest challenges?

How do we keep America safe and lead the world without becoming its policeman?

Finally, how can we make our politics reflect what’s best in us, and not what’s worst?

The President believes that if we can work together to address these big challenges, we can create a better future for generations to come.

That’s why in the weeks and months to come, you will see the President unveil new efforts to address climate change and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. He’ll work to make sure our growing economy works better for everybody. He’ll continue to invest in research and development and make sure that the next generation continues to drive innovation with more computer science training and STEM education. The President will work to keep America safe and strong without isolating ourselves or trying to nation-build all over the world. And President Obama will continue to encourage us all to work together to fix our politics and correct the structural problems in our political system that sideline too many citizens.

The President is focused on doing everything he can to embrace the remarkable potential America’s future holds.

It’s a future where every American who works hard has a chance to get ahead.

It’s a future where American innovation saves lives, creates jobs, and protects our planet.

It’s a future where American leadership is even more indispensable in the 21st century than it was in the 20th.

And it’s a future where special interests aren’t allowed to rig the system, and where every American’s voice is heard.

That’s the future we’re building, and it’s going to take a lot of us to do it. Want to help? Tell us what you’re doing to tackle big challenges in your own community. And share your own thoughts below on the main questions the President laid out in his speech.

In all my years working for President Obama, I’ve never seen him so optimistic and excited. There may not be any more State of the Union addresses to deliver, but there are 372 more days to deliver on behalf of the American people.

Now, it’s back to work.

Actual Remarks of #SOTU16

Remarks of President Barack Obama – As Prepared for Delivery State of the Union Address

The White House is once again making the full text of the State of the Union widely available online. The text, as prepared for delivery, is now online on Medium, Facebook notes, and go.wh.gov/SOTUremarks, continuing efforts by the White House to meet people where they are and make the speech as accessible as possible. Through these digital platforms, people can follow along with the speech as they watch in real time, view charts and infographics on key areas, share their favorite lines, and provide feedback.

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:

Tonight marks the eighth year I’ve come here to report on the State of the Union. And for this final one, I’m going to try to make it shorter. I know some of you are antsy to get back to Iowa.

I also understand that because it’s an election season, expectations for what we’ll achieve this year are low. Still, Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the constructive approach you and the other leaders took at the end of last year to pass a budget and make tax cuts permanent for working families. So I hope we can work together this year on bipartisan priorities like criminal justice reform, and helping people who are battling prescription drug abuse. We just might surprise the cynics again.

But tonight, I want to go easy on the traditional list of proposals for the year ahead. Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty, from helping students learn to write computer code to personalizing medical treatments for patients. And I’ll keep pushing for progress on the work that still needs doing. Fixing a broken immigration system. Protecting our kids from gun violence. Equal pay for equal work, paid leave, raising the minimum wage. All these things still matter to hardworking families; they are still the right thing to do; and I will not let up until they get done.

But for my final address to this chamber, I don’t want to talk just about the next year. I want to focus on the next five years, ten years, and beyond.

I want to focus on our future.

We live in a time of extraordinary change – change that’s reshaping the way we live, the way we work, our planet and our place in the world. It’s change that promises amazing medical breakthroughs, but also economic disruptions that strain working families. It promises education for girls in the most remote villages, but also connects terrorists plotting an ocean away. It’s change that can broaden opportunity, or widen inequality. And whether we like it or not, the pace of this change will only accelerate.

America has been through big changes before – wars and depression, the influx of immigrants, workers fighting for a fair deal, and movements to expand civil rights. Each time, there have been those who told us to fear the future; who claimed we could slam the brakes on change, promising to restore past glory if we just got some group or idea that was threatening America under control. And each time, we overcame those fears. We did not, in the words of Lincoln, adhere to the “dogmas of the quiet past.” Instead we thought anew, and acted anew. We made change work for us, always extending America’s promise outward, to the next frontier, to more and more people. And because we did – because we saw opportunity where others saw only peril – we emerged stronger and better than before.

What was true then can be true now. Our unique strengths as a nation – our optimism and work ethic, our spirit of discovery and innovation, our diversity and commitment to the rule of law – these things give us everything we need to ensure prosperity and security for generations to come.

In fact, it’s that spirit that made the progress of these past seven years possible. It’s how we recovered from the worst economic crisis in generations. It’s how we reformed our health care system, and reinvented our energy sector; how we delivered more care and benefits to our troops and veterans, and how we secured the freedom in every state to marry the person we love.

But such progress is not inevitable. It is the result of choices we make together. And we face such choices right now. Will we respond to the changes of our time with fear, turning inward as a nation, and turning against each other as a people? Or will we face the future with confidence in who we are, what we stand for, and the incredible things we can do together?

So let’s talk about the future, and four big questions that we as a country have to answer – regardless of who the next President is, or who controls the next Congress.

First, how do we give everyone a fair shot at opportunity and security in this new economy?

Second, how do we make technology work for us, and not against us – especially when it comes to solving urgent challenges like climate change?

Third, how do we keep America safe and lead the world without becoming its policeman?

And finally, how can we make our politics reflect what’s best in us, and not what’s worst?

Let me start with the economy, and a basic fact: the United States of America, right now, has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. We’re in the middle of the longest streak of private-sector job creation in history. More than 14 million new jobs; the strongest two years of job growth since the ‘90s; an unemployment rate cut in half. Our auto industry just had its best year ever. Manufacturing has created nearly 900,000 new jobs in the past six years. And we’ve done all this while cutting our deficits by almost three-quarters.

Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction. What is true – and the reason that a lot of Americans feel anxious – is that the economy has been changing in profound ways, changes that started long before the Great Recession hit and haven’t let up. Today, technology doesn’t just replace jobs on the assembly line, but any job where work can be automated. Companies in a global economy can locate anywhere, and face tougher competition. As a result, workers have less leverage for a raise. Companies have less loyalty to their communities. And more and more wealth and income is concentrated at the very top.

All these trends have squeezed workers, even when they have jobs; even when the economy is growing. It’s made it harder for a hardworking family to pull itself out of poverty, harder for young people to start on their careers, and tougher for workers to retire when they want to. And although none of these trends are unique to America, they do offend our uniquely American belief that everybody who works hard should get a fair shot.

For the past seven years, our goal has been a growing economy that works better for everybody. We’ve made progress. But we need to make more. And despite all the political arguments we’ve had these past few years, there are some areas where Americans broadly agree.

We agree that real opportunity requires every American to get the education and training they need to land a good-paying job. The bipartisan reform of No Child Left Behind was an important start, and together, we’ve increased early childhood education, lifted high school graduation rates to new highs, and boosted graduates in fields like engineering. In the coming years, we should build on that progress, by providing Pre-K for all, offering every student the hands-on computer science and math classes that make them job-ready on day one, and we should recruit and support more great teachers for our kids.

And we have to make college affordable for every American. Because no hardworking student should be stuck in the red. We’ve already reduced student loan payments to ten percent of a borrower’s income. Now, we’ve actually got to cut the cost of college. Providing two years of community college at no cost for every responsible student is one of the best ways to do that, and I’m going to keep fighting to get that started this year.

Of course, a great education isn’t all we need in this new economy. We also need benefits and protections that provide a basic measure of security. After all, it’s not much of a stretch to say that some of the only people in America who are going to work the same job, in the same place, with a health and retirement package, for 30 years, are sitting in this chamber. For everyone else, especially folks in their forties and fifties, saving for retirement or bouncing back from job loss has gotten a lot tougher. Americans understand that at some point in their careers, they may have to retool and retrain. But they shouldn’t lose what they’ve already worked so hard to build.

That’s why Social Security and Medicare are more important than ever; we shouldn’t weaken them, we should strengthen them. And for Americans short of retirement, basic benefits should be just as mobile as everything else is today. That’s what the Affordable Care Act is all about. It’s about filling the gaps in employer-based care so that when we lose a job, or go back to school, or start that new business, we’ll still have coverage. Nearly eighteen million have gained coverage so far. Health care inflation has slowed. And our businesses have created jobs every single month since it became law.

Now, I’m guessing we won’t agree on health care anytime soon. But there should be other ways both parties can improve economic security. Say a hardworking American loses his job – we shouldn’t just make sure he can get unemployment insurance; we should make sure that program encourages him to retrain for a business that’s ready to hire him. If that new job doesn’t pay as much, there should be a system of wage insurance in place so that he can still pay his bills. And even if he’s going from job to job, he should still be able to save for retirement and take his savings with him. That’s the way we make the new economy work better for everyone.

I also know Speaker Ryan has talked about his interest in tackling poverty. America is about giving everybody willing to work a hand up, and I’d welcome a serious discussion about strategies we can all support, like expanding tax cuts for low-income workers without kids.

But there are other areas where it’s been more difficult to find agreement over the last seven years – namely what role the government should play in making sure the system’s not rigged in favor of the wealthiest and biggest corporations. And here, the American people have a choice to make.

I believe a thriving private sector is the lifeblood of our economy. I think there are outdated regulations that need to be changed, and there’s red tape that needs to be cut. But after years of record corporate profits, working families won’t get more opportunity or bigger paychecks by letting big banks or big oil or hedge funds make their own rules at the expense of everyone else; or by allowing attacks on collective bargaining to go unanswered. Food Stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did. Immigrants aren’t the reason wages haven’t gone up enough; those decisions are made in the boardrooms that too often put quarterly earnings over long-term returns. It’s sure not the average family watching tonight that avoids paying taxes through offshore accounts. In this new economy, workers and start-ups and small businesses need more of a voice, not less. The rules should work for them. And this year I plan to lift up the many businesses who’ve figured out that doing right by their workers ends up being good for their shareholders, their customers, and their communities, so that we can spread those best practices across America.

In fact, many of our best corporate citizens are also our most creative. This brings me to the second big question we have to answer as a country: how do we reignite that spirit of innovation to meet our biggest challenges?

Sixty years ago, when the Russians beat us into space, we didn’t deny Sputnik was up there. We didn’t argue about the science, or shrink our research and development budget. We built a space program almost overnight, and twelve years later, we were walking on the moon.

That spirit of discovery is in our DNA. We’re Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers and George Washington Carver. We’re Grace Hopper and Katherine Johnson and Sally Ride. We’re every immigrant and entrepreneur from Boston to Austin to Silicon Valley racing to shape a better world. And over the past seven years, we’ve nurtured that spirit.

We’ve protected an open internet, and taken bold new steps to get more students and low-income Americans online. We’ve launched next-generation manufacturing hubs, and online tools that give an entrepreneur everything he or she needs to start a business in a single day.

But we can do so much more. Last year, Vice President Biden said that with a new moonshot, America can cure cancer. Last month, he worked with this Congress to give scientists at the National Institutes of Health the strongest resources they’ve had in over a decade. Tonight, I’m announcing a new national effort to get it done. And because he’s gone to the mat for all of us, on so many issues over the past forty years, I’m putting Joe in charge of Mission Control. For the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the family we can still save, let’s make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.

Medical research is critical. We need the same level of commitment when it comes to developing clean energy sources.

Look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change, have at it. You’ll be pretty lonely, because you’ll be debating our military, most of America’s business leaders, the majority of the American people, almost the entire scientific community, and 200 nations around the world who agree it’s a problem and intend to solve it.

But even if the planet wasn’t at stake; even if 2014 wasn’t the warmest year on record – until 2015 turned out even hotter – why would we want to pass up the chance for American businesses to produce and sell the energy of the future?

Seven years ago, we made the single biggest investment in clean energy in our history. Here are the results. In fields from Iowa to Texas, wind power is now cheaper than dirtier, conventional power. On rooftops from Arizona to New York, solar is saving Americans tens of millions of dollars a year on their energy bills, and employs more Americans than coal – in jobs that pay better than average. We’re taking steps to give homeowners the freedom to generate and store their own energy – something environmentalists and Tea Partiers have teamed up to support. Meanwhile, we’ve cut our imports of foreign oil by nearly sixty percent, and cut carbon pollution more than any other country on Earth.

Gas under two bucks a gallon ain’t bad, either.

Now we’ve got to accelerate the transition away from dirty energy. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future – especially in communities that rely on fossil fuels. That’s why I’m going to push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers and our planet. That way, we put money back into those communities and put tens of thousands of Americans to work building a 21st century transportation system.

None of this will happen overnight, and yes, there are plenty of entrenched interests who want to protect the status quo. But the jobs we’ll create, the money we’ll save, and the planet we’ll preserve – that’s the kind of future our kids and grandkids deserve.

Climate change is just one of many issues where our security is linked to the rest of the world. And that’s why the third big question we have to answer is how to keep America safe and strong without either isolating ourselves or trying to nation-build everywhere there’s a problem.

I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close. We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined. Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world. No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin. Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office, and when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead – they call us.

As someone who begins every day with an intelligence briefing, I know this is a dangerous time. But that’s not because of diminished American strength or some looming superpower. In today’s world, we’re threatened less by evil empires and more by failing states. The Middle East is going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia. Economic headwinds blow from a Chinese economy in transition. Even as their economy contracts, Russia is pouring resources to prop up Ukraine and Syria – states they see slipping away from their orbit. And the international system we built after World War II is now struggling to keep pace with this new reality.

It’s up to us to help remake that system. And that means we have to set priorities.

Priority number one is protecting the American people and going after terrorist networks. Both al Qaeda and now ISIL pose a direct threat to our people, because in today’s world, even a handful of terrorists who place no value on human life, including their own, can do a lot of damage. They use the Internet to poison the minds of individuals inside our country; they undermine our allies.

But as we focus on destroying ISIL, over-the-top claims that this is World War III just play into their hands. Masses of fighters on the back of pickup trucks and twisted souls plotting in apartments or garages pose an enormous danger to civilians and must be stopped. But they do not threaten our national existence. That’s the story ISIL wants to tell; that’s the kind of propaganda they use to recruit. We don’t need to build them up to show that we’re serious, nor do we need to push away vital allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL is representative of one of the world’s largest religions. We just need to call them what they are – killers and fanatics who have to be rooted out, hunted down, and destroyed.

That’s exactly what we are doing. For more than a year, America has led a coalition of more than 60 countries to cut off ISIL’s financing, disrupt their plots, stop the flow of terrorist fighters, and stamp out their vicious ideology. With nearly 10,000 air strikes, we are taking out their leadership, their oil, their training camps, and their weapons. We are training, arming, and supporting forces who are steadily reclaiming territory in Iraq and Syria.

If this Congress is serious about winning this war, and wants to send a message to our troops and the world, you should finally authorize the use of military force against ISIL. Take a vote. But the American people should know that with or without Congressional action, ISIL will learn the same lessons as terrorists before them. If you doubt America’s commitment – or mine – to see that justice is done, ask Osama bin Laden. Ask the leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, who was taken out last year, or the perpetrator of the Benghazi attacks, who sits in a prison cell. When you come after Americans, we go after you. It may take time, but we have long memories, and our reach has no limit.

Our foreign policy must be focused on the threat from ISIL and al Qaeda, but it can’t stop there. For even without ISIL, instability will continue for decades in many parts of the world – in the Middle East, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in parts of Central America, Africa and Asia. Some of these places may become safe havens for new terrorist networks; others will fall victim to ethnic conflict, or famine, feeding the next wave of refugees. The world will look to us to help solve these problems, and our answer needs to be more than tough talk or calls to carpet bomb civilians. That may work as a TV sound bite, but it doesn’t pass muster on the world stage.

We also can’t try to take over and rebuild every country that falls into crisis. That’s not leadership; that’s a recipe for quagmire, spilling American blood and treasure that ultimately weakens us. It’s the lesson of Vietnam, of Iraq – and we should have learned it by now.

Fortunately, there’s a smarter approach, a patient and disciplined strategy that uses every element of our national power. It says America will always act, alone if necessary, to protect our people and our allies; but on issues of global concern, we will mobilize the world to work with us, and make sure other countries pull their own weight.

That’s our approach to conflicts like Syria, where we’re partnering with local forces and leading international efforts to help that broken society pursue a lasting peace.

That’s why we built a global coalition, with sanctions and principled diplomacy, to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. As we speak, Iran has rolled back its nuclear program, shipped out its uranium stockpile, and the world has avoided another war.

That’s how we stopped the spread of Ebola in West Africa. Our military, our doctors, and our development workers set up the platform that allowed other countries to join us in stamping out that epidemic.

That’s how we forged a Trans-Pacific Partnership to open markets, protect workers and the environment, and advance American leadership in Asia. It cuts 18,000 taxes on products Made in America, and supports more good jobs. With TPP, China doesn’t set the rules in that region, we do. You want to show our strength in this century? Approve this agreement. Give us the tools to enforce it.

Fifty years of isolating Cuba had failed to promote democracy, setting us back in Latin America. That’s why we restored diplomatic relations, opened the door to travel and commerce, and positioned ourselves to improve the lives of the Cuban people. You want to consolidate our leadership and credibility in the hemisphere? Recognize that the Cold War is over. Lift the embargo.

American leadership in the 21st century is not a choice between ignoring the rest of the world – except when we kill terrorists; or occupying and rebuilding whatever society is unraveling. Leadership means a wise application of military power, and rallying the world behind causes that are right. It means seeing our foreign assistance as part of our national security, not charity. When we lead nearly 200 nations to the most ambitious agreement in history to fight climate change – that helps vulnerable countries, but it also protects our children. When we help Ukraine defend its democracy, or Colombia resolve a decades-long war, that strengthens the international order we depend upon. When we help African countries feed their people and care for the sick, that prevents the next pandemic from reaching our shores. Right now, we are on track to end the scourge of HIV/AIDS, and we have the capacity to accomplish the same thing with malaria – something I’ll be pushing this Congress to fund this year.

That’s strength. That’s leadership. And that kind of leadership depends on the power of our example. That is why I will keep working to shut down the prison at Guantanamo: it’s expensive, it’s unnecessary, and it only serves as a recruitment brochure for our enemies.

That’s why we need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. This isn’t a matter of political correctness. It’s a matter of understanding what makes us strong. The world respects us not just for our arsenal; it respects us for our diversity and our openness and the way we respect every faith. His Holiness, Pope Francis, told this body from the very spot I stand tonight that “to imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to take their place.” When politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it like it is. It’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals. And it betrays who we are as a country.

“We the People.” Our Constitution begins with those three simple words, words we’ve come to recognize mean all the people, not just some; words that insist we rise and fall together. That brings me to the fourth, and maybe the most important thing I want to say tonight.

The future we want – opportunity and security for our families; a rising standard of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids – all that is within our reach. But it will only happen if we work together. It will only happen if we can have rational, constructive debates.

It will only happen if we fix our politics.

A better politics doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything. This is a big country, with different regions and attitudes and interests. That’s one of our strengths, too. Our Founders distributed power between states and branches of government, and expected us to argue, just as they did, over the size and shape of government, over commerce and foreign relations, over the meaning of liberty and the imperatives of security.

But democracy does require basic bonds of trust between its citizens. It doesn’t work if we think the people who disagree with us are all motivated by malice, or that our political opponents are unpatriotic. Democracy grinds to a halt without a willingness to compromise; or when even basic facts are contested, and we listen only to those who agree with us. Our public life withers when only the most extreme voices get attention. Most of all, democracy breaks down when the average person feels their voice doesn’t matter; that the system is rigged in favor of the rich or the powerful or some narrow interest.

Too many Americans feel that way right now. It’s one of the few regrets of my presidency – that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. There’s no doubt a president with the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt might have better bridged the divide, and I guarantee I’ll keep trying to be better so long as I hold this office.

But, my fellow Americans, this cannot be my task – or any President’s – alone. There are a whole lot of folks in this chamber who would like to see more cooperation, a more elevated debate in Washington, but feel trapped by the demands of getting elected. I know; you’ve told me. And if we want a better politics, it’s not enough to just change a Congressman or a Senator or even a President; we have to change the system to reflect our better selves.

We have to end the practice of drawing our congressional districts so that politicians can pick their voters, and not the other way around. We have to reduce the influence of money in our politics, so that a handful of families and hidden interests can’t bankroll our elections – and if our existing approach to campaign finance can’t pass muster in the courts, we need to work together to find a real solution. We’ve got to make voting easier, not harder, and modernize it for the way we live now. And over the course of this year, I intend to travel the country to push for reforms that do.

But I can’t do these things on my own. Changes in our political process – in not just who gets elected but how they get elected – that will only happen when the American people demand it. It will depend on you. That’s what’s meant by a government of, by, and for the people.

What I’m asking for is hard. It’s easier to be cynical; to accept that change isn’t possible, and politics is hopeless, and to believe that our voices and actions don’t matter. But if we give up now, then we forsake a better future. Those with money and power will gain greater control over the decisions that could send a young soldier to war, or allow another economic disaster, or roll back the equal rights and voting rights that generations of Americans have fought, even died, to secure. As frustration grows, there will be voices urging us to fall back into tribes, to scapegoat fellow citizens who don’t look like us, or pray like us, or vote like we do, or share the same background.

We can’t afford to go down that path. It won’t deliver the economy we want, or the security we want, but most of all, it contradicts everything that makes us the envy of the world.

So, my fellow Americans, whatever you may believe, whether you prefer one party or no party, our collective future depends on your willingness to uphold your obligations as a citizen. To vote. To speak out. To stand up for others, especially the weak, especially the vulnerable, knowing that each of us is only here because somebody, somewhere, stood up for us. To stay active in our public life so it reflects the goodness and decency and optimism that I see in the American people every single day.

It won’t be easy. Our brand of democracy is hard. But I can promise that a year from now, when I no longer hold this office, I’ll be right there with you as a citizen – inspired by those voices of fairness and vision, of grit and good humor and kindness that have helped America travel so far. Voices that help us see ourselves not first and foremost as black or white or Asian or Latino, not as gay or straight, immigrant or native born; not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans first, bound by a common creed. Voices Dr. King believed would have the final word – voices of unarmed truth and unconditional love.

They’re out there, those voices. They don’t get a lot of attention, nor do they seek it, but they are busy doing the work this country needs doing.

I see them everywhere I travel in this incredible country of ours. I see you. I know you’re there. You’re the reason why I have such incredible confidence in our future. Because I see your quiet, sturdy citizenship all the time.

I see it in the worker on the assembly line who clocked extra shifts to keep his company open, and the boss who pays him higher wages to keep him on board.

I see it in the Dreamer who stays up late to finish her science project, and the teacher who comes in early because he knows she might someday cure a disease.

I see it in the American who served his time, and dreams of starting over – and the business owner who gives him that second chance. The protester determined to prove that justice matters, and the young cop walking the beat, treating everybody with respect, doing the brave, quiet work of keeping us safe.

I see it in the soldier who gives almost everything to save his brothers, the nurse who tends to him ‘til he can run a marathon, and the community that lines up to cheer him on.

It’s the son who finds the courage to come out as who he is, and the father whose love for that son overrides everything he’s been taught.

I see it in the elderly woman who will wait in line to cast her vote as long as she has to; the new citizen who casts his for the first time; the volunteers at the polls who believe every vote should count, because each of them in different ways know how much that precious right is worth.

That’s the America I know. That’s the country we love. Clear-eyed. Big-hearted. Optimistic that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. That’s what makes me so hopeful about our future. Because of you. I believe in you. That’s why I stand here confident that the State of our Union is strong.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

[2VIDEOS] “Who is the Plaintiff? @Megynkelly ” – #AmmonBundy #OregonStandOff #10A

 

 

 

“Who is the plaintiff?” Mr. Ammon Bundy asked more than once with zero response by Megyn Kelly host of Kellyfile.

megyn.kelly.deerinheadlights

Mr. Bundy went on air to defend himself and fellow supporters decision to camp out on Oregon Federal land defensively armed in order to bring light to the injustice brought upon the Hammond ranchers by being sentenced, not once, but twice for the same alleged crime of setting a controlled fire to brush on the public federal land they have rightfully shared and maintained for years as it is the grazing land for their cattle.

megyn.kelly.quoting.bundy

What is not stated on this video is the backstory that the federal government itself set fire to the same brush in July of last year destroying fences, electrical telephone poles, burning down neighboring barns and homes. Eighty (80) head of the Hammond’s (& neighbors) cattle were also killed some by being burned alive at the hands of federal employees setting the fires next to same cattle locked in their pens.

The Hammonds were simply trying to save their home, barn and property from the same fiery demise by setting the controlled fire. Were the Hammonds under a judges gag order? Why is the MSM only sharing one side of the story?

Well, we will share the truth. Here’s proof of arson by the Federal government destroying property cattle barns and homes placing lives in jeopardy. Hammonds were and are innocent defending own lives cattle and property:

 

 

Entire point by Ammon Bundy is that the Oregon ranchers have no regress since the plaintiff, the federal government, is also the judge, jury, sentencer and enforcer in this case.

Why is no one pointing out that sentencing the two Hammond men twice for same alleged crime is double jeopardy?

Well we will. ~ by M. Kat Orts & husband Pastor David A. Orts founders of USDefenseLeague.com “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth”

Editorial by Pastor David Orts

The lies of the Ruby Ridge Geraldo Rivera helicopter incident where an innocent Mom and baby was murdered is proof that Alinsky is alive and well and the enemy of freedom and justice lives within the gates of the USA.

Following an April 18, 1992 fly-over by a helicopter for the Geraldo Rivera “Now It Can Be Told” TV show, U.S. Marshal Service HQ received media reports that Weaver had fired on the helicopter. That day in Idaho, a U.S. Marshals team was installing surveillance cameras overlooking the Weaver property at the time of the fly-over. The field report for April 18, 1992 filed by Marshal W. Warren Mays reported seeing a helicopter near the Weaver property, but not hearing any shots fired.

Weaver then granted an interview with a newspaper reporter in which he, family and friends present denied firing on the helicopter. The helicopter pilot Richard Weiss eventually gave FBI FD-302 interviews denying that Weaver fired on his helicopter.

The media reports that Weaver had fired on the Rivera helicopter became part of the justification later cited by USMS Wayne “Duke” Smith and FBI HRT Commander Richard Rogers in drawing up the Ruby Ridge Rules of Engagement on August 21–22, 1992. Also, in spite of Richard Weiss’s repeated denials that shots had been fired at his helicopter, U.S. Attorney Ron Howen would charge that, as Overt Act 32 of the Weaver’s Conspiracy Against the Federal Government, Randy, Vicki and Harris fired two shots at the Rivera helicopter.

Where is the redress of grievance available when the media and government are lying to the people?

“Mean Tweets” on Kimmel read by POTUS Neutering Free Speech in #USA One Tweep At a Time The Plight of @RWSurferGirl [VIDEO]

 

RWSurferGirl.suspended.twitter.12.4.201511:01 pm EST we notice that @RWSurferGirl1 is now back on twitter under same name plus 1 added to the end of her ID. We invite her to share her story with us as soon as she’s ready. Welcome back! We see your “black eye” on your new profile pic illustrative of your fight w/ unknown liberal tweeps we assume? Lots of tweeps had your back and did what they could to motivate twitter to unsuspend you though we see that your normal account is still suspended. We’d love to hear the entire whole story if you’d like to share since many of us have been suspended in the past for a variety of reasons. It seems Conservatism is one common denominator. Show her your support fellow Conservatives, follow her as she’s lost her huge follow and is coming back from scratch. Ultimately we’d like to see twitter immediately restore her original account and we know this won’t happen, but an apology to her would be nice.

FBI chief is wild card for Clinton

FBI Director James Comey is the pivotal figure in the 2016 presidential race that no one is talking about.

Comey, a Republican appointed by President Obama who enjoys a stellar reputation on both sides of the aisle, is investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of State.

Clinton is the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination next year and is expected to be a tough candidate for any Republican to face in 2016.
Yet the controversy surrounding her private email account remains an Achilles’ heel.

The GOP-created House Benghazi Committee flopped in October when Clinton testified for 11 hours. That hearing failed to produce anything newsworthy about her use of a private server and attracted criticism from liberals and read more

Obama actions shield most illegals from deportation even as courts stall amnesty

 

Publisher’s warning: Liberal bias ahead. Commentary supplied as needed. –PBN

President Obama’s marquee deportation amnesty has been stalled by the courts, but the rest of his executive actions on immigration, announced exactly a year ago, are moving forward — including his move protecting more than 80 percent of illegal immigrants from any danger of deportation.

The amnesty, dubbed Deferred Action for Parental Accountability was supposed to grant full tentative legal status — including work permits, Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses — to more than 4 million illegal immigrants. It has been halted by a federal appeals court, and its fate will soon rest with the Supreme Court.

 But the rest of the dozen actions Mr. Obama announced on Nov. 20, 2014, are still advancing, including a far-reaching set of priorities that effectively orders agents not to bother deporting nearly all illegal immigrants.
