A majority of Democrats responding to a weekend Rasmussen survey want Hillary Clinton to stay in the presidential race even if she is indicted.

In a stunning revelation, 71 percent of likely voters who identified themselves as Democrats told the Rasmussen survey, published today, that they believe Hillary Rodham Clinton should continue running for the presidency if she is indicted in connection with the use of a private e-mail server while Secretary of State.

Today’s Seattle Times fact-checks some of her statements regarding the e-mail scandal. A fair number of Times readers reacting to the article are convinced she has been dishonest. Continue Reading →

Attacks in Paris, if it was on American soil, would somebody already be blaming “lax gun laws?”

New York Times reported that the Islamic State claimed responsibility for last night’s bloody string of attacks in Paris, and further that the terrorists called them “the first of the storm,” but had this outrage happened on American soil would somebody already be blaming “lax gun laws?”

Presidential candidate Donald Trump, appearing today in Beaumont, Texas, had a much different perspective. According to WGHP, Trump told his audience, “When you look at Paris — you know the toughest gun laws in the world, Paris — nobody had guns but the bad guys. Nobody had guns. Nobody.”

“You can say what you want,” Trump is quoted by the Fox affiliate, “but if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would’ve been a much, much different situation.” The crowd, according to the report, “erupted into raucous applause.”

The Washington Examiner reported last night that Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, also running for president, suggested that plans to bring Syrian refugees to this country should be shelved. Fox News reported this morning that fingerprints have identified one of the dead terrorists as an extremist French national.

Saturday afternoon, Fox News reported that at least one of the victims was a visiting American student from California. She was identified as Nohemi Gonzalez, 23.

In the wake of the attack, Politifact reached back five months to a statement by President Barack Obama, reacting to the Charleston church shooting, observed, “This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.” Except that it obviously does.

French authorities are focusing on the individuals responsible, but here in the United States, it has become customary and almost reflexive to blame so-called “lax gun laws” and the Second Amendment — and organizations that defend the right to keep and bear arms — to promote a political agenda of citizen disarmament. There is no Second Amendment in France.

Now there is discussion about the potential for such an attack in the United States. There is a sense of heightened security, but how does that translate to the ground level? Paris demonstrated that terror attacks go after soft targets, and the United States is filled with them: sports stadiums, concert halls, shopping malls, schools, pick a venue, especially buildings and facilities posted as “gun free zones.”

And with that, Trump’s remarks in Beaumont strike a chord with many American citizens. More than 12.5 million are estimated to have carry licenses and permits. To paraphrase Trump, say what you will, but at times of uncertainty, the ability to defend one’s self and family can be reassuring.

Is there danger of such a terrorist attack in the United States? Yesterday, hours before the Paris attack, Barack Obama was telling reporters that ISIS had been contained. Last night, following the attack, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said there are no “specific or credible threats” of an attack here, according to Newsmax.

Remembering America’s Independence in an Era of Tyranny

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

America has come so very far from the ideals in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration is the ideal from which America was born – out of and with the help of Divine Providence. The Constitution was the first attempt to put into practice this ideal. The Constitution cannot be understood outside of the light of the Declaration.

Our liberty, our freedoms – according to the Founders – come from God. A Constitutional Republic must, as a matter of fact, have a moral standard, and ours always has. The biblical understanding of right and wrong has defined America’s morality long before our first President was sworn in. From the Mayflower Compact to how we educated our children in the early 1600’s in Jamestown, the laws and love of God has been at the center of who we are as America. Our Founders formed a government based on these biblical moral standards which are the fulcrum around which our laws and our system works. Under this way of life, poisons and threats to our way of life become easy to spot and defeat. Without moral clarity, victory becomes very hard to maintain and achieve. Continue Reading →

Monday, Capitol Hill will be SWARMED by Hamas jihadis in Suits

US Jihadi Political Party to Blitz Capitol Hill Next Week  on Monday April 13, 2015 :  “Muslim Advocacy Day”.
By John Guandolo:

The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) will spend Monday and Tuesday of next week on Capitol Hill advocating their position as the first national Muslim political party.

Formed in June of 2014, the USCMO is made up entirely of Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations – but that is redundant since Hamas is an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine.

Reminder:  Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. Continue Reading →

From 9/11 to Syria: Incompetence, Cowardice, and Treason Among American Leadership by John Guandolo

Years ago, it is hard to imagine anyone being able to see into the future to today and predict the complete collapse of leadership in America – but it has come.  

On 9/11/2001, I was plodding through the wreckage of the Pentagon as an FBI Special Agent, recovering what was left of fellow Americans in what was left in the sections of the building hit by an airplane commanded by jihadis.  Furious at our enemy, I was determined to do all I could to seek out this enemy and destroy  him.  I could have never imagined that, years later, America’s leaders would give such aid and comfort to our enemies.

As we survey the rubble of American foreign policy and the incoherent domestic agenda, specifically as they relate to the security of America, we discover a most incredible thing – the leadership of both political parties in America, through ignorance, cowardice, and outright treason, are aiding and abetting the very enemy who attacked us in our homeland on this day 12 years ago.

Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt & U.S. ONE & the SAME (Guest, John Guandolo)

The Obama Administration has wrongly supported the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda against the regimes in Libya and Syria, and continues to support and defend the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, contends counter-terrorism expert and former FBI agent John Guandolo, host of www.UnderstandingtheThreat.com.

The Muslim Brotherhood killing non-Muslims, burning churches, and overthrowing governments across the globe, with the support of the Obama Administration, is the same Muslim Brotherhood which has a significant infrastructure here in the United States, and whose leaders are key advisors in nearly every organization and agency inside the U.S. national security apparatus.
