Michele Bachmann says: Obama Embraces ‘Agenda of Islamic Jihad’ to Convert “United States into an Islamic Caliphate

2014-11-22T054224Z_1_LYNXNPEAAL011_RTROPTP_4_USA-IMMIGRATION-OBAMA-e1416920267345-300x180

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has been an outspoken voice against the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the halls of the United States federal government, and she has taken the shots against her, even by those who claim they are on her side. Recently, the Minnesota congresswoman was interviewed by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (FRC) and told him that Barack Obama has embraced “the agenda of Islamic jihad,” and that agenda includes both the destruction of Israel and converting the “United States into an Islamic Caliphate.”

“While the president continues to say that this is not about the religion of Islam,” Bachmann said in an interview on a radio show produced by the Family Research Council. “This has everything to do with the tenets of Islam… it is a new state that is being put together for the purpose of destroying Israel and to turn the United States also into an Islamic Caliphate… I have been very surprised to see the president of the United States at every turn… embrace and lift up the agenda of Islamic jihad.”

BuzzFeed reports:

Bachmann was referring to a report in the Wall Street Journal that stated President Obama wrote secret letters to the Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei about having a shared interest in fighting the Islamic State and reaching an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.

“Now when in the world — and by that, I mean the goals of the Islamic State, the fact that they want their own state. Our president, we know now, is writing secret notes to the Ayatollah in Iran; there’s a recent report that the president is trying to have private meetings with the Ayatollah in Iran. Iran is very clear about their goal — their goal is to have a nuclear weapon. They’ve said, unequivocally, they will use it against the United States and against Israel.”

Obama muslim2Bachmann said she used time at the White House Christmas party earlier in December when members of Congress take photos with the president to tell him to “please end their nuclear program.”

“I used that time to talk to him about a nuclear Iran, and I asked him to please end their nuclear program, because we have the capacity to end it. And I said, ‘Mr. President, this will be on your watch.’”

Bachmann said the president spoke to her condescendingly when he answered.

“And he laughed at me condescendingly, and he said: ‘Well, Michele, it isn’t that easy. But that’s okay.’ Like patting me on the head, like I didn’t know what I was talking about. And I looked back at him, and I said: ‘Mister President, if Iran has a nuclear weapon, it will be on your watch. And the history of the world will change, because of your failure to act.’”

Some may claim that Bachmann is “out to lunch” on this and is merely an “Islamophobe” for making such claims. However, as Ben Barrack has said, “The claim is only outrageous when viewed in a vacuum, not when viewed in the context of Obama’s background, decisions while president, and people he has in his administration.”

Unless we forget, Obama stood and engaged in taqiyyah when he told the American people that the Islamic State was neither Islamic nor a state. Other examples of the Obama administration standing with Islamists include his State Department’s recent working alongside a designated terrorist organization in order to whitewash their terrorist connections, and John Kerry’s taqiyyah claim that “The real face of Islam is a peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings.”

Barack Obama poked America’s veteran’s in their eyes, while at the same time committing treason by funding, supplying arms and military equipment to America’s enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood. He traded known five known Islamic Taliban terrorist leaders for one American deserter, and one of those leaders has already vowed to fight the US.

As for Bachmann, earlier this year, after putting forward legislation that would label the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, much like the United Arab Emirates did, she warned that Obama would be granting amnesty to Islamic terrorists, and it seems that no one is listening. However, history will demonstrate that Mrs. Bachmann was right in doing what she did.

A Better Poverty Fighter Than Raising the Minimum Wage

As Published in the Wall Street Journal 8-12-2014

Expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit for childless adults would put money in pockets without hurting jobs.
Aug. 11, 2014 7:35 p.m. ET
When Rep. Paul Ryan in July announced new proposals to fight poverty, he may have also found a way to settle the debate about raising the minimum wage. His plan to expand the Earned Income Tax Credit for childless adults would boost take-home pay and fix a hole in the social safety net without hurting jobs. That’s a compromise that Democrats and Republicans can support.

President Obama wants to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 from $7.25. But the Congressional Budget Office released a report in February estimating that this higher wage would eliminate 500,000 jobs. For the past five months, proponents of the president’s proposal have been working to rally public opinion. The labor union-backed group Americans United for Change launched a nationwide bus tour this spring to promote the wage hike. Last month, a coalition of more than 60 advocacy organizations kicked off a public challenge to live on the federal minimum wage for a week.

Many Democrats plan to make the minimum wage an issue to boost voter turnout in the midterm election and have no interest in negotiating the $10.10 figure. Others seem more inclined to compromise: West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, for instance, told MSNBC in May that he’s “willing to sit down and talk about anything that’ll raise” the minimum wage above $7.25.

But even a modest wage increase would have immodest consequences. Increasing the minimum wage to $9 an hour would cost roughly 100,000 jobs, according to CBO estimates.

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan Associated Press
Enter Mr. Ryan’s proposal. The EITC, a refundable tax credit for low-income households that phases out as income rises, helps the working poor without imposing a harmful mandate on employers. But the EITC has one major weakness: Under current law, the size of the credit is dramatically smaller for individuals and families without children.

For instance, a single mother with two children who works part time for the federal minimum wage receives nearly $4,500 in additional income from the EITC. That’s a 40% increase in take-home pay, bumping her hourly wage to $10.15 an hour from $7.25. But a single woman without children who works the same hours for the same wage takes home $265 in EITC benefits annually—a 2% increase in take-home pay.

Mr. Ryan’s plan would close that gap. His proposal, as described in a House Budget Committee draft, would double the credit that childless adults receive as a percentage of their eligible income—to 15.3% from 7.65%. It would also lower the age of eligibility to 21 from the current 25, and raise the income threshold for receiving the maximum credit to $11,500 from $8,220. The results are significant: A childless adult who now receives $265 annually would take home $1,005 a year under Mr. Ryan’s plan. That’s roughly the equivalent of raising their minimum wage to $8 an hour.

It’s not just good politics; it’s good policy. Mr. Ryan’s proposal would reach childless adults in poverty whose hourly wage nevertheless exceeds $10.10. (A 2010 study in the Southern Economic Journal, sponsored by the Employment Policies Institute and conducted by economists Joseph Sabia and Richard Burkhauser, found that 25% of hourly employees in poverty earn $12 an hour or more.) It also circumvents another problem with using an increase in the minimum to reduce poverty: Only 18% of the benefits from Mr. Obama’s wage proposal would go to minimum-wage earners living in poor families, as David Neumark explained in these pages last month.

A direct payment from the IRS, on the other hand, goes straight to its intended beneficiaries.

The EITC program has its share of flaws. A 2014 report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration estimated that up to 26% of the program’s payments in fiscal 2013 were made in error. Mr. Ryan’s proposal also acknowledges the problem (not unique to the EITC) of marginal tax rates, where the loss of benefits from safety-net programs creates perverse incentives for low-wage earners.

Coping with these challenges means improved enforcement strategies for the IRS and perhaps a slower phaseout rate for the EITC. But an imperfect partial subsidy that rewards work is still preferable to the jobs lost as a consequence of a higher minimum wage.

Mr. Ryan’s plan is a better solution and a win for both sides of the aisle. Democrats can point to a progressive tax policy that provides substantial gains for low-income workers, and Republicans can boast of raising wages without burdening employers.

POST OFFICE REFORM IS REAL and IT’S FROM DARRELL ISSA

post_office-300x240
Darrell Issa has been waging an under-the-radar campaign to save the Postal Service for years now. The most recent iteration of his plan, the Postal Reform Act, would save $17 billion over the next ten years for the USPS. The major changes would be giving the USPS the ability to eliminate Saturday delivery and encouraging curbside rather than doorstep drop-offs.

Additionally, it would eliminate what the postal workers’ union has claimed is the major deficit on the USPS budget: a requirement that the USPS pre-fund retirement benefits to the tune of over $6 billion per year.

In both eliminating the pre-funding requirement and giving the USPS the ability to be more flexible with their mandates, Darrell Issa’s reform should hit all the right buttons. And the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget wrote up the CBO score for Issa’s bill favorably:

The bulk of the savings would come from two changes in mail delivery. The first would authorize the Postal Service to eliminate Saturday mail delivery, which CBO expects it would do, saving $11 billion over ten years. The second would require the USPS to increase the use of curbside and centralized delivery, rather than delivering directly to people’s doors. This change would save $8 billion. In addition, the bill would save smaller amounts from eliminating annual appropriations to reimburse USPS for free and reduced-rate mail ($800 million) and from increasing rates on bypass mail delivered to Alaska ($170 million).

The Postal Reform Act represents a responsible approach to fixing the Postal Service’s finances. Congress should not hesitate to act, especially given the trouble the USPS is having in meeting its contribution obligations for future health benefits.

Rubio: There’s No ‘Responsible Way’ to Smoke Pot

RubioSen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said asking whether a politician has ever tried marijuana is a “worthless question” in American politics.

Rubio, a potential 2016 candidate for president, has consistently dodged the question about if he experimented with the drug as a younger man. In an interview that aired Monday from ABC News-Yahoo News, Rubio reiterated that answering the question honestly is a lose-lose.

“Here is the problem with that question in American politics,” he said. “If you say that you did, suddenly there are people out there saying it is not a big deal, look at all these successful people who did it. And I don’t want my kids to smoke marijuana. And I don’t want other people’s kids to smoke marijuana. I don’t think there is a responsible way to recreationally use marijuana. On the other side of it, if you tell people that you didn’t, they won’t believe you. So it is just a worthless question.”
He added: “I understand it is a question today that people think they need to ask, but the bottom line is, I don’t think people should smoke marijuana.”

The Florida senator said he decided against answering the question after a conversation he had following the publication of his book, An American Son, in which he wrote about his mediocre grades in high school.

“Someone came up to me and said, ‘You know, I enjoyed your book, but I want you to know, my son came up to me and said he doesn’t have to get good grades in high school, because look at Marco Rubio, he didn’t do well in high school and look how successful he’s been,’ ” he said.

Rubio, an opponent of legalization, made similar comments earlier this year.

The drug has been decriminalized in a number of states and legalized in Colorado and Washington. Rubio said federal law drug laws should be enforced there.

“And the bottom line is, I believe that adding yet another mind-altering substance to something that’s legal is not good for the country,” he said. “I understand there are people that have different views on it, but I feel strongly about that.”

Rubio Successfully Blocks Nomination Of Gay Black Judge

by:javier-manjarresRubio-DC
Senator Marco Rubio (R) has successfully blocked the appointment of what would have been the first openly gay black man to wear a federal judge’s robe.

The White House confirmed that President Obama would not be reintroducing Judge William Thomas’ nomination to the U.S. Senate, because the initial nomination was “returned by the Senate and Senator Rubio”

Back in July 2013, the Shark Tank reported that the reasons why Rubio was blocking a judge he first recommended to the President, was because of his “past record on the bench.”

Here is what we wrote:

Rubio’s office is quiet about the nomination, but a source very close to the nomination pointed to the Shark Tank via text mail, the probably reasons why Rubio is holding up Thomas’ nomination. The text points to the judge’s past record on the bench, a DUI case, as well as a link to a high profile murder case, as being the reasons why Rubio is most likely holding up the nomination.

The Tampa Bay times reported that Rubio was concerned about “his involvement in a controversial case in which a man was given a sentence of just 364 days in jail for the hit-and-run death of a cyclist.” Thomas light sentence came down because he was concerned about the driver’s blood disorder that would put the offender at risk of further suffering and possibly death, were he to be jailed any longer.

The murder case in question is about the 2006 murder of a 18-year-old girl that was kidnapped, raped, and executed by 5 thugs, who confessed to the crime, but whose confessions were thrown out by Judge Thomas.-Shark Tank

Rubio’s office, ala Brooke Sammon, stuck to script and pointed to Rubio’s past comments as to why he was hell-bent on blocking Thomas.

“The nomination of Judge Thomas has also been thoroughly reviewed, and Senator Rubio has determined that Thomas’s record on the state court raises serious concerns about his fitness for a lifetime federal appointment. Those concerns include questions about his judicial temperament and his willingness to impose appropriate criminal sentences, particularly in the two high-profile cases of Michele Traverso and Joel Lebron last year. After reviewing Thomas’s record, Senator Rubio cannot support moving forward with the nomination,” Sammon said. -HuffPo
And then there is the affirmative action we-need-more-black-jurists-in-the-courts outcry, which you knew was coming.

“Judge Thomas is a well-qualified jurist,” Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told HuffPost in the fall. “There is a serious underrepresentation of minorities on the bench and partisan obstructionism isn’t making it any better.”

Hastings is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, which has railed against Rubio for blocking black judicial nominees at a time when the group says black judges make up about 8.3 percent of the federal judicial bench. In addition to Thomas, Rubio had been withholding his blue slip for another black judicial nominee, Brian Davis. But Rubio ultimately agreed to move forward with Davis, who has since been confirmed.

“I am upset and concerned. Senator Marco Rubio himself said that Judge Thomas had passed all the tests, and then all of sudden for Senator Rubio to say Judge Thomas is not suitable is just not right,” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said Tuesday. “I don’t know what more I can do to make Senator Rubio understand that what he is doing is wrong.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if groups like GLAAD, or even the New Black Panther Party, Jesse Jackson, or even Sharpton, put in their two cents worth of racially divisive rhetoric to oppose Rubio.
