Obama fits in a “Holiday” visit to some of our troops as he is talking about how our US involvement in Afganistan is attempting to wind down yet simulateously reminding all that it will remain “a dangerous place.”
Congress will be attempting to give the victims of the Fort Hood shooting US Military Purple hearts. One wonders how that will work since our POTUS still refuses to recognize the mass shootings as an Islamic terrorist event equivalent to an act of war on US soil by an Islamic jihadist attempting to further the goals of Islam by attacking our active US Military troops during an active time of war. It was not workplace violence Mr. Obama! Most Americans agree on that point. ~MKO for USDefenseLeague.com “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth” for the Glory of God and our Good USA #Pro-Israel

Contrary to what the leftists rewriting history will have you believe, our Founding Fathers were faithful to Judeo Christian values, and founded the United States of America on those values. Always question a Communist (progressive) when they start to speak of faith. Happy Thanksgiving everyone from the founders and staff of PBN and US Defense League!
Congressional Fast Day Proclamation
Congress proclaimed days of fasting and of thanksgiving annually throughout the Revolutionary War. This proclamation by Congress set May 17, 1776, as a “day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer” throughout the colonies. Congress urges its fellow citizens to “confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and by a sincere repentance and amendment of life, appease his [God’s] righteous displeasure, and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain his pardon and forgiveness.” Massachusetts ordered a “suitable Number” of these proclamations be printed so “that each of the religious Assemblies in this Colony, may be furnished with a Copy of the same” and added the motto “God Save This People” as a substitute for “God Save the King.
Obama is keeping secrets. Our President is lying to us. We the People know that his puerile treason and nihilism against the good people of the USA, won’t stop. Obama continues to pontificate, fabricate, elucidate his lawlessness in our USA regardless of what we say. We’re good people in the USA, right?
But I ask you now, how good are we if we let Barack Obama get away with crimes? Ponder on this for few minutes. I hope you have thought about how good we are, and taken some personal responsibility to do your part. That said If the third stanza of America the Beautiful does not jerk a tear from your soul, reflect: Do you have a soul for the USA? Do you have the heart to take action?
O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine Till all success be nobleness, And ev’ry gain divine!’
We’re in trouble cool kids, they be a thug in the hizzy, and he is cold and calculating and as smart as a fox. He has the backing of the loonies in both parties, not lunatics, but crazed for power. If we don’t do what we need to do, like we as in We THE People did to stop the nonsense of Dub’ya with the Dubai Ports deal, Obama will push trough a treasonous act, and give tens of millions of lawbreaking illegals, some of which are terrorists, cover and access, putting the burden on, yes… We The People! In closing I’m pretty sure that the tears of the Founders are pouring out of their now closed eyes, but, as Americans, regardless of generation, we are a law abiding nation (usually), our cities cannot gleam however under the direction of evil, which attempts to glean our citizens with their selfish intent of our God given liberty, like this administration lives to perpetrate.
O Beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!

Activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. They hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. “He seems resolute that he’s going to go big and go soon,” says Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-reform group America’s Voice.

The **expletive*** has hit the proverbial fan in every US household due to every lie covering every previous lie from the “most” switch it, least, transparent Presidency ever. Finally, the WH Press club along with MSM media everywhere is catching on due to the fallout now hitting them square in the journalistic jaws. Unable to see or hear anything in their official ‘brown shoe leather pounding’ official capacity on or inside the White House grounds or calendar. True frustration has set in from all sides on all levels from photojournalists to editors. Partisanship has nothing to do with censorship. The Dictator’s walls have officially been built to now be seen by all. Welcome to Obama’s Press service where one size government-owned only photo ops and government approved and released statement fits all.

The partisan battles that have paralyzed Washington in recent years took a historic turn on Thursday, when Senate Democrats eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations, severely curtailing the political leverage of the Republican minority in the Senate and assuring an escalation of partisan warfare.
The rule change means federal judge nominees and executive-office appointments can be confirmed by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote super majority that has been required for more than two centuries. read more
ObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax, per Article 1 Section 7, of the US Constitution. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty. Thereby rendering it null and void.
We here at PushBackNow.com & USDefenceLeague.com have been effusively attempting to educate the American populace of the factual truth regarding the legality and Constitutionality of: ObamaCare aka The Affordable Care Act. It is NOT in any way, shape or form the “Law of The Land!”
Because ONLY The US House of Congress can initiate a law, a tax law, a bill or a resolution that demands money from the American People. The bill or law cannot be re-written from a penalty to a tax, created after the fact in SCOTUS, in the midst of a Constitutional review in the highest court of the land: The United States Supreme Court.As powerful of a court as they are, they cannot create, initiate, birth, write, draft, re-write, implement or mandate ANY laws, bills, taxes, resolutions or Constitutional Amendments period. They can ONLY review the Constitutionality of a case before them!
Again, ObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty, thereby rendering all Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch offspring, clones, twins and any variations pertaining to ObamaCare aka ACA (Affordable Care Act) null and void. And Here’s proof… One last thing, after you read it, share it, teach it and preach it. This is Truth, and Truth always prevails.
Article 1. Section. 7.
All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.
Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill. http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html#1.7
This should be the end of the conversation, but alas the proponents of the anti-ethical and burdensome ObamaCare Socialist One Payer Anti-American dream repeat their false mantra that it is the “law of the land” so deal with it. It is not. You deal with that! Liberals and radical Democrats and, unfortunately even some RINOs, have similar dreams for illegals to be supported by the ‘one-percenters’ and middle-income Americans amidst this great Republic of The United States of America. The Affordable Care Act’s weight will be shouldered by the healthiest and hardest working and doled out indiscriminately. The method of administering ObamaCare via its ‘Marketplace’ is another discussion entirely. And the means, using the IRS The Internal Revenue Service to regulate after such partisan assaults would be laughable if it weren’t so dangerous! The facts are facts and ObamaCare/Affordable Care Act is a reprehensible illegal mandate pushed onto the American people via unauthorized, illegitimate and UN-Constitutional means. It is therefore NULLand VOID. Take that Mr. President, Democratic Congress, RINOs, et al, or, submit yourselves unto the legislative mulch you created and languish thusly by applying ObamaCare to yourselves at once! We The People will stand up against this, and every unlawful mandate and protect our Republic. Now let’s hear from another Wide Awake Conservative voice. ~-PBN read more

It’ is only because of the lies of the Democrats that all blacks are not Conservative.

We have laws on the books that the lawmakers are ignorant of. Maybe Congress, the Judiciary and Executive branches should get busy keeping the laws we have but first they’ll need to know the present laws prior to trying to enact any more!
Many refer to the President of the United States, leader of the sole superpower in the world, as the most powerful person on the face of the Earth. It follows then that Barack Hussein Obama, as President, would be considered this person.
But that would be an incorrect conclusion. Even Obama with his “we can’t wait for Congress to act” meme, spurning the legislative branch, spurning the checks and balances the Founding Fathers put in place—even with Obama spurning the Courts in the recent NLRB ruling deeming his “recess” appointments unconstitutional, there is one man who wields more power than Obama: CIA appointee John Brennan.
How can that be? Brennan is man who is actually relatively low in the White House food chain, who is nothing more than an adviser to the President, with the title of Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.
Yet this man has a virtually unchecked amount of power—no, let us call it for what it is—unchecked power. Congress, the Courts, the CIA, even the Pentagon have no reign over this man as we shall see in a moment.
It was recently discovered that Brennan, running something akin to a fiefdom with his drone assassination program, has the power to decide who lives and who dies and doesn’t have to provide evidence to any entity that the “target” presents any threat to America—even if they are an American—even if the American is living in the United States!
Investigative Reporter Michael Isikoff uncovered a secret memo, entitled:
“Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al Qa’ida or An Associated Force.”
The memo gives the Obama Administration—in effect Brennan—the authority to kill any American citizen at anytime for any reason without proof, without due process, and with absolutely no oversight.
The key passage in the sixteen page memo is the following:
The condition that an operational leader present an “imminent” threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future.
This was the basis for the drone strike against American-born al-Qaeda-linked terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki in September of 2011 in Yemen. And this was the basis of the murder of al-Awlaki’s sixteen-year-old son Abdulrahman, along with several other teenagers who were engaged in an outdoor barbecue. While it is debatable whether al-Awlaki as an American citizen should have received due process, it is doubtful that his son, murdered two weeks after al-Awlaki, had any connection to al-Qaeda.
But this unchecked power exercised by John Brennan is mild compared to what we learned with the recent release of an extensive book on the Benghazi consulate attack on September 11, 2012.
The book, Benghazi: The Definitive Report, released on February 12 makes the shocking claim that Obama’s chief counter terrorism officer, John Brennan, aside from having the authority to murder American citizens, has been waging a series of secret wars in North Africa and the Middle East against Al Qaeda and Al-Qaeda-linked groups. How secret? So secret that he and his minions at JSOC, Joint Special Operations Command, operated not only outside the purview of Congress but outside the purview of the Pentagon and CIA. Former CIA head David Petraeus wasn’t even aware of Brennan’s secret wars!
According to Benghazi: The Definitive Report, the attack on the Benghazi consulate had nothing to do with, as we were told, an amateurish anti-Muslim YouTube video leading to a “protest turned violent,” but was retaliation for John Brennan’s JSOC attacks on the Libya-based terrorist group, Ansar al-Sharia. This was the group that we learned had taken responsibility within two hours of the attack, of which information was emailed directly to the White House Situation Room. After said information was uncovered, the Obama administration denied was true.
It turns out that, per the book, the West, particularly the United States, leading up to the 2011 Libyan civil war had been flooding Libya with literally millions of weapons. After the West—NATO, with Obama at the helm—decided to topple Gaddafi, these millions of weapons then fell into Al-Qaeda and associated groups’ hands. And what Team Obama wasn’t funneling to the Syrian rebels (what Benghazi: The Definitive Report calls an “open secret”)—they wanted to get back from groups such as Ansar al-Sharia. Brennan, throughout North Africa, had been conducting his secret JSOC wars against al-Qaeda and associated groups; and lo and behold, yes, Mr. Brennan, there was retaliation. And that retaliation resulted in the deaths of four Americans at the consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11.
The whole Obama Benghazi cover-up was only partially about hiding the illegal funneling of Libyan weapons to Syria and was mainly about the real—but illegal—Commander-in-Chief John Brennan conducting secret wars in Libya—without approval from Congress, without approval from the Pentagon, and hidden even from the CIA, with only a behind-doors approval by Barack Hussein Obama.
How can the “adviser” to Obama—John Brennan—have the authority to make war on any country in the world?
The answer is he doesn’t have the authority.
Brennan should be arrested, not appointed to lead the CIA. And the man who is doing the appointing—Barack Hussein Obama—should be immediately impeached.
After he is impeached?
Prison will come in due time.
As a postscript, for the record, Benghazi: The Definitive Report makes it clear that when the Benghazi consulate was attacked and requested help, the CIA annex was told to stand down. They were ordered to stand idly by while Americans were slaughtered. They refused. According to Benghazi: The Definitive Report:
[Tyrone Woods’] leadership that day, and his refusal to sit by and all his fellow Americans to be overrun, is a testament to his character. His willingness to stand up to his CIA boss and do what was right is an example of true American heroism. Glen Doherty ran toward the sound of gunfire…
Let the president be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”
Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.
In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”
In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”“Well, I’m almost breathless about that,” Sessions responded, “because what I heard you say is, ‘We’re going to seek international approval, and then we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval.’ And I just want to say to you that’s a big [deal].”
Asked again what was the legal basis for U.S. military force, Panetta suggested a NATO coalition or U.N. resolution.
Sessions was dumbfounded by the answer.
“Well, I’m all for having international support, but I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “They can provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.”
The exchange itself can be seen below:
The full wording of H. Con. Res. 107, which is currently referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, is as follows:
Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.
Whereas the cornerstone of the Republic is honoring Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under Article I, Section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.

Even the liberal leaning FactCheck.org called out Senator Harry Reid for being doubly wrong in his claim that Congress has already cut $2.6 trillion from projected future deficits by reducing non-defense programs alone.
The site explained that not only did the legislation he referred to applied to both security and non-security spending, but that a considerable part of the deficit reduction came from tax increases and not spending cuts.
The worst part? The senator made the same erroneous statement twice. Reid made the affirmations on ABC’s “This Week” on Feb. 3rd, were he also added that further deficit reduction should include more tax increases and cuts in military spending.
“The American people need to understand that it’s not as if we’ve done nothing for the debt. $2.6 trillion, $2.6 trillion already we’ve made in cuts. And all those cuts have come from non-defense programs. We need to keep our eye on the prize and continue doing something about spending, but I think that what we need to do is do some of the things that Mitt Romney talked about. He said there’s some low-hanging fruit; there are a lot of tax loopholes that should be closed. I agree with him. We haven’t done that.,” he said.
Later on, after host George Stephanopoulos probed the Senator on the issue, he repeated his claim saying,
“I repeat: $2.6 trillion already, all coming from non-defense. If we’re going to have a sequester, defense is going to have to do their share”
According to FactCheck.org Reid inflated the $2.6 trillion figure for the show. The senator referred to the same figure as being $100 billion less, three days before on the Senate Floor.
