Obama's legacy

President Obama's speech to the United Nations confirms that he believes he is the world healer, while his domestic policy is ruining our economy and our freedoms. Indeed, Mr. Obama is betraying our national security while he fights the fires of terrorism with sticks, stones and a garden hose to finish his time in office. That will likely be the curse of President Obama's legacy ("Obama's new inner circle acts to bolster his legacy," September).

Obama lays out case for U.S. involvement

President Obama's speech on his strategy to stop ISIS did little or nothing to excuse his record of failures that allowed the build-up of ISIS into a clear and present danger to America. At this point there is no strategy by the president that will prevent an emboldened ISIS -- with terrorist members from America -- from conducting terrorist attacks against our homeland.

Unfortunately, it is President Obama's dereliction of duty that is the greatest threat to our national security. Indeed, a "God bless the United States of America" won't absolve him of that.

No to Hillary in 2016

Hillary Clinton and President Obama are painful examples of politicians who blatantly lie to the majority of voters to get elected, then revert to their core ideology to govern.

Mrs. Clinton was inept as secretary of state and would do little to nothing to resolve President Obama's foreign-policy disaster. Particularly, when she simply did Obama's bidding by pushing the "reset button" with Russia, and exacerbated matters in Libya when she mishandled the Benghazi terrorist attack that cost the lives of four Americans, including our ambassador.

Mrs. Clinton's recent feigned criticism of the president's foreign policy is hypocritically political at the height of the Islamic State crisis in Iraq. If elected president, Mrs. Clinton would still embrace Obamacare as evidenced by her failed attempt at national health care during the Clinton administration.

Hillary Clinton for president? No.

Prisoner swap probe

As long as Obama is president, it is unlikely Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be convicted of anything or even court-martialed ("Hostage swap might signal Gitmo closing." July)

As long as Obama is President, it is unlikely that Sergeant Bergdahl will be convicted of anything or even court-martialed, when in all likelihood, he should be prosecuted for desertion, collaborating with the enemy and treason.

Is there a choice but to continue Iran talks?

Negotiating with Iran to stop their nuclear weapon development is an exercise in futility. Iran will continue to pursue nuclear weapons until stopped by complete sanctions and military action if necessary.

President Obama's drive to have a nuclear weapon-free world is delusional. Agreeing to reduce our nuclear weapons from about 5000 to 1500 was a deadly mistake, and he wants to reduce them further.

We must retain the deterrent with overwhelming nuclear strength. America is now much more vulnerable and the world is less safe.

Militarize the border

It's bad enough that decades of weak border enforcement and weak illegal alien enforcement have imposed too great a burden on American citizens' tax dollars supporting millions of illegal aliens' housing, health care, education and welfare. Indeed, Illegal alien criminals, drug cartel operatives and gangs who prey on our citizens must be stopped along with the out-of-control flow of illegals.

Considering President Obama's refusal to enforce immigration laws and border security, the only solution to stopping unabated border crossings is to militarize the border. That should be done immediately and it should remain that way permanently to keep out criminals, drug cartels, terrorists and the flow of illegal aliens. The security of the American people demands it.

Obama fails to protect border

President Barack Obama has begun his transformation of America and abdicated his responsibility to enforce laws that do not fit his agenda. Indeed, his intentional failures have turned into a crisis of illegal aliens flowing across the border, including many children from South America -- 100,000 and counting -- most of whom will not be deported.

Worse, President Obama has seriously violated our country's sovereignty, our economy and our domestic and national security by allowing potential terrorists to cross the border. Obama's failed foreign policy is stimulating the proliferation of terrorists in the Middle East who are dedicated to the destruction of America with no remorse.

Coupled with the steady growth of already big government, overreaching regulations, punishing taxation, and the loss of freedoms, the administration and liberal Democrats' abuse of power are a clear and present danger to our country and American citizens. This can only be overcome by changing the executive, legislative and judicial branches of our government to constitutional limited government -- with our votes. It's a matter of our survival.

Obama campaigns while al-Qaida burns Iraq

President Obama preaches about global warming to the UC Irvine graduating class -- attends a Democrat fundraiser in Laguna Beach, and vacations in Palm Springs on Father's Day without his children -- while al-Qaida increases its burning invasion of Iraq and continues to grow throughout the Middle East.

Indeed, as al-Qaida drives to combine Syria and Iraq by creating an extreme Islamic state -- to conduct terrorism against America and the West -- Iran is backing Iraq with its military to resist the takeover.

Worse, President Obama's worthless diplomacy -- ignoring the meltdown of the Middle East, and the rapid growth of al-Qaida -- threatens our national security directly, while Iran increases its efforts to develop nuclear weapons, unabated.

Surely, the president must immediately use our airpower to stop and destroy al-Qaida with fighters, missiles, drones and B-2 bombers -- the assistance of the Arab-League. Further dereliction of presidential duty is simply unacceptable.

Easing sanctions a mistake

President Obama easing sanctions and delaying further sanctions in his six-month agreement with Iran over nuclear inspections is a deal with the devil. Indeed, Iran has a long history of misusing diplomacy to buy time for furthering its devious activities in gaining more power in the region.

Iran's nuclear weapon development is much more dangerous than all of its previous assaults on Israel, and its advancement of power in Iraq, Syria and other Mideast nations. Clearly, a nuclear weapon Iran would work toward the annihilation of Israel.

Easing sanctions on Iran and threatening to veto increased sanctions on Iran by Congress is naïve. Iran's false promise to restrict uranium enrichment and allow inspections will result in Iran developing a nuclear weapon. Israel knows it and will not allow Iran to do it.

All President Obama will accomplish will be an attack on Iran by Israel, the proliferation of war in the region, and increased national and global security threats.

It comes as no surprise that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry failed in their negotiations with Iran. It should be understood that Iran is using negotiations, delays and distractions to buy time so it can develop nuclear weapons.

Our administration should know that you don't negotiate with terrorists or a terrorist state.

Obama administration incompetency, domestic and foreign

With less than 50,000 people signing up for Obamacare on government web sites, and 49,000 on state exchange sites, and half of both have been unable to complete the process, it clearly demonstrates that government is incompetent. Worse, 7 million people have had their health plans cancelled because they don't meet Obamacare standards -- which will more than double or triple their premiums and deductibles -- leads the American people to the inescapable conclusion that President Obama lied, and that the Obamacare law should be renamed, "The Unaffordable Careless Act" -- a tyranny which will ultimately and unnecessarily cost taxpayers an extra $1.2 trillion.

Plus, it comes as no surprise that President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are foreign policy incompetents in their negotiations with Iran. It is well known and understood that Iran is using negotiations, delay and distractions to buy time for developing nuclear weapons, and that you don't negotiate with terrorists or a terrorist state.

Deals with the devil
by Daniel B. Jeffs

President Obama and Vladimir Putin cooked up the deal for Syria to turn over chemical weapons to make them both look good. Recall Obama told Putin that he would be more flexible after his re-election. If Obama is flexible with Putin on the chemical weapons, Russia and Iran win, America loses, as does our national security.

Syria is not the deciding issue here. Putin's Russia is. They provided chemical weapons to Syria, Egypt and the Middle East. Putin and Iran are the main threat to our economy, our national security and the world. Iran undermined all of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, making our losses futile.

Backed By Russia, Iran's design is to control the Middle East and North Africa, and to command the forces of radical Islam with nuclear power. We must stand with Israel and all our combined powers to prevent that from happening. Difficult, when our President sells out to Putin and makes deals with the devil.

Lest we forget, Vladimir Putin is on course to recover Russia's power in the World, and along with China, replace America as the planet's only super economic and military power.

Bow to Russia? No

I think President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin cooked up the deal for Syria to turn over its chemical weapons to make them both look good.

Remember when Obama, unaware his words were being recorded, was caught telling outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have "more flexibility" regarding things like missile defense after the 2012 elections?

If Obama is flexible with Putin on the chemical weapons, Russia and Iran win, and America loses.

Syria is not the issue here. Putin is. Russia is providing weapons to a number of nations in the Middle East, including Syria. Russia is also forming an alliance with Iran.

Iran and Russia are the main threat to our and the world's security. Backed By Russia, Iran aims to control the Middle East and North Africa and command the forces of radical Islam with nuclear power.

We must stand with Israel and prevent this from happening. But that will be difficult when our President sells out to Putin and makes deals with the devil.

Military security failures

The DC Navy Yard massacre of 12 employees and Navy personnel by crazed former Navy reservist, Aaron Alexis sends another frightful message to America:

Lack of leadership and attention to military screening and security allowed Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to carry out the massacre of soldiers at Fort Hood, and Aaron Alexis to enter the Navy Yard with a weapon to begin his murderous rampage.

The same security failures apply to the treasonous release of military secrets by Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, and NSA secrets by contractor Edward Snowden -- all of which substantially increases threats to our national security.

Obama's leaderless foreign policy

President Obama's leaderless foreign policy presidency has given al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood their rise to power in the Middle East and North Africa, leaving Muslim nations in mass confusion and costing thousands of lives. Obama's missile-man approach in dealing with our mortal enemy has escalated their invasions and emboldened their threat to our national security.

Egypt and Libya are bloody examples of the Obama administration's incompetence. Israel must be feeling a substantial increase in the threat against them, particularly from Iran, Syria and their Hezbollah army of terrorists.

Bombing Syria over the use of chemical weapons on its own people would only serve to escalate the violence and more aggression from Iran, which would likely spill over into assaults on Israel. Clearly, President Obama's focus must be in support of Israel, against Iran's nuclear weapons threat, and the overall threat to our national security, by any means necessary. Unfortunately, Obama's obsession with the growth of government and weakening America is more frightening.

Snowden, Manning, Hasan are traitors

There is no question that Edward Snowden is a traitor for revealing NSA secrets aiding our mortal enemy Islamic terrorists. Indeed, Army Pvt. Manning is a traitor for doing the same with classified material concerning Iraq and Afghanistan, and Army Major Nidal Hasan is murderous a traitor for assassinating our troops at Fort Hood being processed for a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The problem is, none of these blatant traitors are being prosecuted for treason, which Is the historical product of our cowardly liberal government's unwritten policy of "none dare call it treason." Of course the Snowden, Manning and Hasan cases were exacerbated by President Obama's weakness with China and Russia, and the screening and security failures of the CIA, NSA and the U.S. Army allowing the traitors to operate in their respective positions.

Nonetheless, all three should be convicted of treason, punishable by either death or life in prison and the loss of citizenship. Surely, their open contempt for the privilege of being a United States citizen is an indictment of how casual and cynical too many people have become about being American and the freedom that goes along with it, including President Obama.

Alas, Obama's blind obsession with forcing social justice in America and his narcissistic ill-perceived leadership in the world -- at the expense of our economy, our freedoms and our national security -- abandoning Israel, Iran's nuclear threat, and the al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood takeover of the Middle East and North Africa -- and their Jihadist agenda for terrorist attacks against America and the West -- makes him the greatest threat to our future and our survival.

'Exploitainment' distracts from real threats to U.S.

Relatively innocent fright movies such as Dracula, Wolfman, The Thing, The Blob, Attack of the Body Snatchers, War of the Worlds, Star Wars, Psycho and The Walking Dead have evolved into the exploitainment proliferation of violent extremes in video games, movie and television series, vampires, werewolves, zombies and apocalypse and techno/mechanical end of the world frauds, such as World War Z and Pacific Rim.

It's bad enough that the abandoned and malignant hearts of Hollywood abdicate quality television, movies and social responsibility with lazy, shallow minds, absent original thought to feed their selfish interests by exploiting the emotions of children, juveniles and immature young adults. But when they violate the innocence of children's stories from Snow White to the Lone Ranger with multiple insults, lies and distortions, it's simply unconscionable.

Obama's national insecurity

President Obama's track record on national security has been a dangerous policy backing off. And clearly, the terrorists and our other enemies know it, as evidenced by Obama's support of American-style liberal democracy in the revolutionary "Arab Spring," which was obviously compromised by Islamic extremists, consuming North Africa and the Middle East, including our vital ally, Turkey.

Indeed, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood are alive and well, in a constant state of growth and power. Plus, regardless of our losses, Obama has ensured that Iraq and Afghanistan will certainly come back to bite America, when Iraq is taken over by Iran, and Afghanistan is returned to the al-Qaeda-friendly Taliban.

Coupled with President Obama's unilateral reduction of our nuclear deterrent power, while failing to deter China, North Korea, Russia, Pakistan and Iran from nuclear proliferation -- and failing to secure our borders -- his lack of national security performance is unconscionable.

Particularly, in light of Iran and Russia's support of the Syrian regime, and Obama's rebel support of regime turnovers in Egypt, Libya and throughout North Africa and the Middle East, giving al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic militants blanket power.

Indeed, the terrorist threats to our national security have substantially increased, benchmarked by the malfeasance in Benghazi costing the lives of our ambassador and three other Americans.

Obama's mounting articles of impeachment

It's already obvious that the 9/11 anniversary Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack costing the lives of our ambassador and three security personnel was the result of intentional malfeasance by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton.

Worse, the deceitful cover-up is tantamount to giving aid and comfort to our Islamic jihadist terrorist enemy to further a re-election campaign and to protect Obama and Clinton at any cost.

Even worse, the ongoing Teflon provided by the ideology-driven liberal media to President Obama and presumptive 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton -- and the demonization of all opposition -- is an unconscionable abdication of public responsibility by the press.

It was bad enough that the President Obama's campaign promises supporting the passage of Obamacare were a pack of lies concealing the devastating costs and cuts in America's healthcare coverage -- in addition to the wasteful, useless spending of his enormous stimulus packages, economy-busting regulations, national debt expansion.

Now comes reports that as early as the 2010 passage of Obamacare, and during the re-election campaign, administrative tyranny was launched by President Obama's IRS against the Tea Party and other conservative opposition's tax exemption status -- in addition to the merciless demonizing of all opposition of any description. Indeed, even the New York Times criticized the administration's abusive IRS tactics against the Tea Party in a March 2012 editorial.

Subsequently, the president's sequester idea developed into selective pain from government cuts in FAA air traffic controllers and all manner of other unnecessary cuts designed to adversely affect the public -- placing blame on Republicans -- all intended to reclaim Democrat control of the House of Representatives in 2014.

Certainly, President Obama has made it painfully and abundantly clear that he has no problem defying Congress, ignoring the constraints of the Constitution, and the will of the people to do or get what he wants -- un-American as it may be.

Clearly, President Obama's costly ideology-driven executive orders, and administrative edicts and regulations amounting to tyrannical administrative abuse of power and cover-ups, along with patterns of lies and deceit, dereliction of duty against terrorism, border security -- and his failings in national and domestic security -- are stacking up as prospective articles of impeachment.

Lest we forget, it was House Republicans who moved ahead with hearings on the Watergate cover-up and articles of impeachment against former Republican president Nixon's abuse of power resulting in his resignation. Which begs the question: Where are the Democrats in the mounting evidence against President Obama and his captains of corruption?

The problem is: President Obama will likely never be impeached and convicted because congressional Democrats and the liberal press are unlikely to let it happen -- and America will undoubtedly suffer the consequences.

Worse, it doesn't seem to matter that Dzhokhar is a radical Islamic jihadist traitor waging war against America -- who along with his deceased brother Tamerian -- planned to bomb Time Square in New York, or that what the Obama administration did, increased threats to our national and domestic security.

In other words, President Obama, AG Eric Holder, his U.S. Attorney, and the federal magistrate blatantly abdicated their sworn duty to defend our public safety against all enemies, foreign and domestic, leaving them with the blood of Boston on their hands.

The carnage in Boston brought on by the radicalized Muslim brothers intensifies the clear and present danger of the long record of inhuman savages who would wipe out all but fundamentalist Muslim human life on the planet, particularly in America. They say we are the great Satan, where in reality, the devil-Satan is their fanatical belief in extreme Jihad.

Our news media's saturation coverage of the terrorist attack and the over-analysis that followed is just what the terrorists want. Fear and chaos, spawning more of the same.

There is no question that we must bring about major changes for the enhancement of our national and domestic security. Particularly on our borders and with our visa, immigration and refugee/asylum seekers. We can no longer stand the near unfettered flow of foreign gangsters, criminals and terrorists to our nation.

Surely, being politically correct simply doesn't work when it breeds predators, parasites and terrorism.

Time for bold GOP action

It's time for Republicans to take bold steps to stem the destructive Democrat tide continuing with the re-election of President Obama. Indeed, it's bad enough that the president got much of what he wanted in tax increases with no spending cuts. Though it further damages the economy, it's a drop in the bucket compared to Obama's grand plan to "fundamentally transform America" by edict, executive order and political bullying.

By transforming his Cabinet starting with the ideological appointments of "yes-men" -- Lew to Treasury, Hagel to Defense, Kerry to State, and Brennan to the C.I.A. (not a cabinet position) -- President Obama will make it painfully clear that he will sacrifice economic recovery, the middle class, foreign policy, and our national security to attain his world view that the United States must lose its status of first in military and economic world power, exceptionalism and freedom.

Worse, President Obama's reckless efforts are enhanced by decades of indoctrination by the national liberal media, Hollywood, unions and the education establishment left, which are largely responsible for his election and re-election, as evidenced by relentless attacks against America's work force, free enterprise, wealth, the fight against terrorism, religion, law enforcement, the criminal justice system, the Constitution and family. Not to mention his intention to reduce our national defenses, and disarm the American people.

Surely, Republicans must take decisive actions to hold the line against government growth and abuse of power, and to retain the House and regain the Senate in 2014 by convincing the electorate that the GOP is the only way out of the pain they feel from this Democrat-caused mess. Indeed, the deceitful, insidious Obama-Democrat agenda must be exposed for what it really is. Socialism by sucking the economy dry, and breaking the spirit of liberty.

Sheriff's Department did their job

As a former sheriff's sergeant and Grand Jury member with 41 years of experience in the criminal justice system -- who carefully followed the Christopher Dorner case -- I can say that San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon and his department did an outstanding and heroic job of ending Dorner's deadly rampage of vengeance against law enforcement without any further loss of officers' lives.

Indeed, ex-LAPD officer Dorner was waging war against the first line of defense for the American people, which was domestic terrorism tantamount to treason. If there is any other blame to be laid in this evil-laden tragedy, it is likely to be found in the failure of LAPD background screening, psychological testing, and training or lack thereof, behind the hiring and 3-year retention of Dorner until he was fired.

Ready for Hillary in 2016?

The media anointed Barack Obama twice for president. Now, with the fawning interview of Obama with Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton on CBS's "60 Minutes" -- arranged by the president as an obvious endorsement -- I'm sure we'll see the media anoint Hillary and Bill Clinton president for 2016.

The manner in which the dominant media gushed over Clinton's performance -- and feigned emotion -- in the hearings over the mishandling of the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attacks that killed four Americans was an early indicator ("Defiant Clinton take on lawmakers on Libya attack," Jan. 24).

The media are determined to elect the first woman president following the first black president, even if America pays the price.

Clinton's State Department is an empty vessel

The recent report from the State Department investigation of the attack on our consulate -- needlessly costing the lives of our ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya -- confirms that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been commanding an empty bureaucratic vessel of "systemic failures," with impunity, replete with implausible denials and unaccountability.

Indeed, Secretary Clinton's lack-luster tour of duty at State -- aimlessly traveling the world -- serving the Obama administration's lack of leadership and do-nothing philosophy in foreign policy, has allowed the Middle East to explode into the Islamic extremist takeover of Egypt, the unfettered expansion of al-Qaeda, massacres in Syria, the growth of Taliban power in Pakistan, and the advance of Iranian nuclear ambitions.

Needless to say, the Obama/Clinton foreign policy is seriously diminishing our national security, which comes as no surprise, considering President Obama's flagship leading congressional Democrat soldiers and a bureaucratic armada of liberal fools in ideological battle babble -- swelled with reckless over-regulating, borrowing, taxing, spending and debt -- irreparably damaging our economy and our freedoms.

President Obama's other shoes dropping

Since President Obama's re-election, his other shoes are dropping in multiples: CIA Director General Patraeus resigned on a sex scandal and Afghanistan Commander General Allen being caught-up in it, raising even more questions about the deadly Benghazi terrorist attack.

The stock market continues to fall and large companies are closing shops and announcing layoffs because of the fiscal cliff, and pending tax increases -- including implementation of the health careless laws -- which will damage small business and the middle class, not save us.

Federal tyranny shifts into high gear with President Obama rolling out over 6,000 regulations and more at a steady pace -- while military arms, equipment and nuclear missile defense are being reduced including our national security.

Shifting control keeps Israel in check

Israel and our national security in the Islamist vice - America facing regulatory balloon payments and economic Armageddon

Egypt's President, Mohamed Morsi brokered the cease-fire between Hamas and Israel. This gave Hamas the claim of victory and Morsi the opening to seize power for himself and the Muslim Brotherhood. indeed, he might have more power than Hosni Mubarak. ("Morsi's sweeping powers throw Egypt into turmoil," News, Monday).

Surely, the deadly insidious plans of Russian-assisted Iran and Syria are to squeeze Israel among the rockets/missiles of Gaza's Hamas, Lebanon's Hezbollah and Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood to deter action by Israel against Iran's nuclear weapons development. Meanwhile, the Obama administration will undoubtedly continue to sit on the sidelines and be "flexible," as the region implodes.

So much for addressing the clear and present danger threats to Israel, to our national security, and to the world. And don't forget Libya terrorist debacle costing four American lives, and reports of Mexican drug cartels smuggling Hezbollah agents into the United States.

(second half of letter cut for space):

ON THE HOME FRONT, America faces the 2009-2010 President Obama-Democrat-Congress-engineered 2012-2014 malfeasant balloon payments for the unaffordable Health Care Act -- and the Dodd-Frank Financial Services Act's over-regulators -- coupled with Obama edicts EPA anti-carbon, anti-fossil fuel, anti-energy regulations that will undoubtedly engender economic Armageddon.

Certainly, what we have here, is irrefutable evidence of the ongoing -- now stepped-up downhill -- transformation of America from a limited government, free market Constitutional Republic; to the intentional chaos of a superficial society of social aggression, political terrorism, selfish interests and extremes; to unabated government growth, an overwhelming entitlement society, costly dumbed-down education indoctrination -- and class warfare on the road to socialism and the loss of freedom.

Middle East conflict

Iran/Hamas vs. Israel

Israel did a lot for peace by giving up Gaza to the Palestinians as their state -- even to the point of Israel forcibly removing its own citizens from Gaza -- which of course meant nothing to the Iran-backed and armed terrorist Hamas government that came to power.

Iran needs to buy time to develop their nuclear weapons, so they had their puppet Hamas attack Israel with rockets, keeping Israel busy defending itself to the point of an invasion -- lessening the chance of Israel taking out Iran nuclear weapon facilities for a while.

However, it should come as no surprise if Iran's Hezbollah in Lebanon attacks Israel, doubling the defense battle fronts for Israel to keep them busy for even longer. Indeed, it's all so transparently deadly, the vile arrogance of terrorist states.

Sadly, America's bleeding heart liberals and fools in the media, of course, take the side of Palestinian death and suffering without the least consideration that extreme Islamists have no value for life -- only the afterlife -- while Israel values their life as free, sacred and precious.

Alas, the question is, where to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton really stand on this explosive issue of national defense and world security? We will soon see where America's leadership, or lack thereof, is coming from and where we are going. Thus far, it doesn't look good.

One thing is certain. Iran's fanatic Islamic state is obsessed with scorching Israel's earth and snuffing it out of existence, by any ruthless means necessary. That kind of mindless tragedy will take peace-loving, freedom-seeking Iranians with it. What's the point? Islamic world domination at any cost.

Benghazi intrigue continues

Obama's Benghazigate

President Obama's plausible denial over the Benghazi attack cover-up is simply implausible. Particularly, when former CIA Director, Gen. Patraeus said in a closed congressional hearing that his report indicated it was a terrorist attack, and that al-Qaeda was involved.

However, when the talking points were returned to Patraeus, the terms terrorist and al-Qaeda had been removed. Then, of course, UN Ambassador Rice personally carried the false video message -- which had to have come from the president -- to the media.

The insidious nature of Benghazigate is surely being developed from President Obama covering his manslaughter malfeasance with administration surrogates, Clinton, Rice, Patraeus and his own diversionary statements at the United Nations. Indeed, feigning outrage at Sen. McCain and being offended by Gov. Romney will not relieve him of direct responsibility and dereliction of duty.

Worse, President Obama's grievous inattention to the Iran nuclear threat, the unraveling of the Middle East, the growth of al-Qaeda, and the opportunistic, escalating Gaza-Hamas attacks on Israel portends serious threats to our national security and our economy.

Attacks linked to 9/11

So al-Qaeda is putting out the call for all Muslims to expel American embassies from Muslim lands ("Al-Qaida calls for more attacks," Sept. 16).

This has little if anything to do with the anti-Muslim film made by a California Egyptian immigrant, and everything to do with the anniversary of 9/11. Surely, the spread of radical Islam throughout the Middle East is intent on wiping out Israel, Jews, America and Americans everywhere in the world.

And If not prevented from doing so, Iran will use nuclear weapons to start the all out war.

President Barack Obama's action or inaction, and Governor Mitt Romney's intentions are vital to deciding our future and whom to elect.

Obama's foreign policy should prevent re-election

Al Qaeda's call for expelling Americans from the lands of Islam was not over the anti-Islamic film. Considering the history of al Qaeda's focus on "death to Israel and America" and the deadly events of the last few days, militant Islamists have made it painfully clear that the 9/11 anniversary, plus retribution for drone deaths of their leaders, were behind the premeditated terrorist attacks on our embassies in Libya, Egypt, throughout the Middle East and other countries. All of which is exacerbated by President Obama's ambivalence to threats from Iran against Israel and America.

Surely, it's too late for President Obama to back Israel's "red line" against a nuclear weapons Iran, to increase our military resolve, or to back off his costly liberal policies and executive actions damaging our economy. It's clearly time to crank-up our domestic oil and fuel production immediately -- plus our vast coal energy resources -- to ensure our oil and energy independence, which is absolutely necessary for our national security, our defense and our economic recovery.

President Obama's history of actions and inactions are clear and convincing evidence that he is unfit for a second term. Hopefully, if Mr. Obama is not re-elected, his reaction to a deeply bitter campaign -- as a lame-duck president from November 7th to January 20th -- won't be a spiteful slash and burn departure.

Bungled Libyan embassy security

As usual, President Obama equivocated about the obviously planned 9/11 terror attacks on our embassies in the Middle East. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still visibly stunned, in a trance, talking very slowly about the embassy attack in Libya and assassination of our ambassador, simply because she dropped the ball on protecting her people.

Indeed, President Obama's reluctance in backing Israel against Iran's nuclear threat is tantamount to President Clinton's failure to follow-up the first World Trade Center attack in 1993, his refusal to take Osama bin Laden when offered up by Sudan, the attacks on the our military housing in Saudi Arabia, the Cole, and our embassies in Africa.

Clinton's only response were the misguided missile attempt to kill bin Laden in Afghanistan and the aspirin factory, all of which lead to the 9/11 attack on America. Clearly, Clinton/Obama style of national security misleadership reduces the security of the United States.

The Terrorist Next Door:

How the Government is Deceiving You About the Islamist Threat

by Erick Stakelbeck

(Foreword by Michelle Malkin)

Pub. Date: May 2011

Publisher: Regnery Publishing, Inc., An Eagle Publishing Company

Synopsis

Al-Qaeda doesn’t care about “Hope” and “Change”

The threat of terrorism in America, the Obama administration assures us, is contained and controlled. Recent attempted attacks like the Times Square bombing, the “underwear bombing” on a flight over Detroit, and the attack on a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon were all isolated plots that failed anyway. In the words of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, “The system worked.”

Don’t believe it. In The Terrorist Next Door, investigative reporter Erick Stakelbeck exposes the staggering truth about our national security: the Obama administration is concealing and whitewashing the enormous terrorist threat growing right here within America’s borders.

If you believe terrorism is only a problem for other countries, Stakelbeck’s on-the-ground reporting will open your eyes. He has been inside America’s radical mosques, visited U.S.-based Islamic enclaves, and learned about our enemies by going straight to the source—interviewing al-Qaeda-linked terrorists themselves. In this shocking book, Stakelbeck reveals:

How Islamic radicals have established separatist compounds and even jihadist training camps throughout rural America That an overt disciple of Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini now leads one of the largest mosques in America How mega-mosques aren't just planned for Ground Zero—they're being built in the heart of the Bible Belt as part of a plan for Islamic domination What a former U.S. covert agent inside the Iranian regime says about Iran’s program to recruit Americans into terror groups How the Obama administration’s beguiling counter-terrorism policies are increasing the threat of another 9/11

The Terrorist Next Door sounds the alarm on a growing threat to every American—one that the U.S. government refuses to face honestly or even to name. As we struggle against a relentless and adaptable Islamist enemy that is committed to destroying our nation, we can’t say we weren’t warned.

Biography

Erick Stakelbeck is an investigative reporter on terrorism and national security issues and host of the Stakelbeck on Terror program on CBN News. Frequently appearing as a terrorism analyst on FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, al-Hurra, the BBC, and the Savage Nation, Stakelbeck has written articles on Islamic extremism, global terrorism, and national security for the Wall Street Journal Europe, Weekly Standard, Washington Times, New York Post, New York Sun, Jerusalem Post, and National Review Online, among other publications. He lives near Washington, D.C., with his wife and two daughters.

Review

“You are holding in your hands the unvarnished, invaluable reporting that the rest of the “mainstream media” can’t or won’t do. My friend Erick has traveled the world to interview terrorists who are plotting the establishment of a global Islamic caliphate—and who have succeeded in Islamicizing large swaths of Europe. He has investigated fifth column organizations on our soil that pledge allegiance not to our Republic, but to sharia law. In The Terrorist Next Door, he also blows the whistle on how the same reckless, open-borders policies I exposed in Invasion nine years ago continue to aid and abet jihadi-sympathizers from Somalia and elsewhere.” —Michelle Malkin, author of the New York Times bestseller, Culture of Corruption

OSAMA BIN LADEN

By Michael Scheuer

Published: February 2011

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Synopsis

9/11 almost instantaneously remade American politics and foreign policy. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, water boarding and Guantanamo are examples of its profound and far-reaching effects. But despite its monumental impact—and a deluge of books about al-Qaeda and Islamist terrorism—no one has written a serious assessment of the man who planned it, Osama bin Laden. Available biographies depict bin Laden as an historical figure, the mastermind behind 9/11, but no longer relevant to the world it created. These accounts, Michael Scheuer strongly believes, have contributed to a widespread and dangerous denial of his continuing significance and power.

In this book, Scheuer provides a much-needed corrective—a hard-headed, closely reasoned portrait of bin Laden, showing him to be a figure of remarkable leadership skills, strategic genius, and considerable rhetorical abilities. The first head of the CIA's bin Laden Unit, where he led the effort to track down bin Laden, Scheuer draws from a wealth of information about bin Laden and his evolution from peaceful Saudi dissident to America's Most Wanted. Shedding light on his development as a theologian, media manipulator, and paramilitary commander, Scheuer makes use of all the speeches and interviews bin Laden has given as well as lengthy interviews, testimony, and previously untranslated documents written by those who grew up with bin Laden in Saudi Arabia, served as his bodyguards and drivers, and fought alongside him against the Soviets. The bin Laden who emerges from these accounts is devout, talented, patient, and ruthless; in other words, a truly formidable and implacable enemy of the West.

Biography

Michael Scheuer is a twenty-plus-year CIA veteran. From 1996 to 1999, he served as the Chief of the bin Laden unit (aka Alec Station).

In addition, Pfc. Bradley Manning should be considered a traitor. Sneaking those documents to Assange was treason against the United States.

Indeed, Nancy Gibbs' article, "The Fort Hood Killer: Terrified … or Terrorist?" comes clearly to that terrifying conclusion without question, as it should. It was a blatant act of terrorism and much more… Major Hasan has rightly been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder, however, why have none dared to call it what it is. In Major Hasan's case it was certainly a blatant act of Treason. Any American citizen who commits an act to overthrow our government is a traitor. The urgent need to replace the current socialist grip on our government with a traditional constitutional government notwithstanding, there is simply no place for moral relativism in governing this country. Indeed, we the vast majority of the people of the United States want to limit government and restore our freedoms from the tyranny of taxation, regulation and big government. Many of our soldiers and defenders of our freedom were unnecessarily killed or wounded by a treasonous, militant, radical Muslim monster who could have and should have been stopped long before it was too late. Political correctness and a lack of diligence in national security was directly responsible for that. Fortunately, many more would have fallen it were not for our first line of defense, particularly, police Sgt. Kimberly Munley, the SWAT-team markswoman nicknamed Mighty Mouse, who bravely put her life on the line in taking down the terrorist traitor. Indeed, we should all gives thanks to those in law enforcement throughout the country on Thanksgiving Day. Cops, our first line of defense.

Terror trial in N.Y. will put U.S. at risk

Bringing 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, to trial in a New York
federal court will highlight the perversions of the Islamic religion and our
criminal justice system (“Plans to try 9/11 suspect in NYC draw fire,” News,
Monday).

This trial will be made possible by by anti-American lawyers and the moral
relativism of President Obama. The case will also incite more terrorism and
unnecessarily put our national security at extreme risk.

Riverside Press Enterprise November 15, 2009 Correctness costs lives Nidal Malik Hasan let his religion go fanatic on him ("Blame game starts in Fort Hood probe," Nov. 11). He chose Islamic fascist terrorism and jihad against his own country in its highest form, murdered his enemies and committed the highest treason against America. The Defense Department and the Army bear much of the responsibility. They did not heed the obvious red flags and immediately discharge him. Rather, they were politically correct and deployed him to Afghanistan, which set him off. Our soldiers paid the unconscionable price for nothing. There is no place for moral relativism here.

Soldiers paid the price

Major Hasan let his religion go fanatic on him. He chose Islamic fascist
terrorism and jihad against his own country in its highest form, and is
accused of murdering his enemies and committing the highest treason against
America.

The Defense Department and the Army bear much of the responsibility by not
heeding the obvious red flags and immediately discharging him, rather than
politically correct hesitation and an Iraq/Afghanistan deployment transfer
that apparently set him off.

Stupid is as stupid does. And our soldiers paid the unconscionable price for
nothing. There is no place for moral relativism here.

Clarify military mission in Afghanistan
By Daniel B. Jeffs, founder DDC
October 13, 2009

President Obama needs to clarify his military mission, leave Afghanistan and
concentrate on neutralizing Al-Qaeda here and throughout the world.

Considering the long and ridged tribal and fundamentalist Islamic history of
Afghanistan and their hostile ability to defeat foreign invaders of every
description, it would be wise to leave the country to the Taliban. As brutal
as their hard-line religion can be, they did maintain order, and they did
away with the opium poppy fields, which supply most of the world's heroin.

We and our allies can neutralize Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda with increased
and intensified intelligence, infiltration, very special forces operations,
Predators and smart bomb technology.

Meanwhile, we must increase our assistance to Pakistan in running the
Taliban out of their country. Allowing Pakistan and its nuclear capabilities
to fall into the hands of terrorists is simply not an option.


Give Afghanistan back to the Taliban
By Daniel B. Jeffs, founder DDC
October 8, 2009

Considering the long and ridged tribal and fundamentalist Islamic history of
Afghanistan and their hostile ability to defeat foreign invaders of every
description, it would be wise to leave the country to the Taliban. As brutal
as their hard-line religion can be, they did maintain order, and they did
away with the opium poppy fields, which supply most of the world's heroin.

We can neutralize Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda with smart bomb technology.
Meanwhile, we can send Bill Maher to Afghanistan as our anti-American,
anti-religion ambassador. He thinks he's smart and clever enough to convert
everyone to atheism. Let's see how well he does with the one-eyed Omar.


Attacking Cheney and America's security
By Daniel B. Jeffs, founder DDC
September 4, 2009

Obama-operatives, the ACLU and left-leaning journalists are wrongly
demonizing former vice president Cheney, a patriot who took his oath of
office seriously and was instrumental in keeping us safe from terrorist
attacks since September 11, 2001.

It is highly disturbing to know that so many ignorant people -- unduly
influenced by careless media and anti-American zealots -- are suckered into
believing that crippling the CIA and other intelligence services is
something noble rather than making us woefully less safe.

Lest we forget, is was 8 years of the Clinton administration's cowardice and
incompetence in handling the first terrorist attack on the World Trade
Center, coupled with a limp retreat from Somalia, which emboldened Bin Laden
and led to the attacks on our embassies in Africa, and the USS Cole, which
led to the vicious 9/11 attacks. The CIA and our national security were
compromised then, and they are being blatantly compromised again by the
Obama administration.


This is the antithesis of Thomas Paine's Common Sense, and a clear and
present danger to our freedom. It must be stopped. DDC

The Coming Insurrection
Authors: The Invisible Committee
Publisher MIT Press
August 2009

Thirty years of "crisis," mass unemployment, and flagging growth, and they
still want us to believe in the economy. . . . We have to see that the
economy is itself the crisis. It's not that there's not enough work, it's
that there is too much of it.
-from The Coming Insurrection

The Coming Insurrection is an eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe. Written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord-and with comparable elegance-it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors). One of its members more adequately described the group as "the name given to a collective voice bent on denouncing contemporary cynicism and reality." The Coming Insurrection is a strategic prescription for an emergent war-machine to "spread anarchy and live communism."

Written in the wake of the riots that erupted throughout the Paris suburbs in the fall of 2005 and presaging more recent riots and general strikes in France and Greece, The Coming Insurrection articulates a rejection of the official Left and its reformist agenda, aligning itself instead with the younger, wilder forms of resistance that have emerged in Europe around recent struggles against immigration control and the "war on terror."

Hot-wired to the movement of '77 in Italy, its preferred historical reference point, The Coming Insurrection formulates an ethics that takes as its starting point theft, sabotage, the refusal to work, and the elaboration of collective, self-organized forms-of-life. It is a philosophical statement that addresses the growing number of those-in France, in the United States, and elsewhere-who refuse the idea that theory, politics, and life are separate realms.

Forgotten soldier?
As the media continues its obsession with celebrity deaths, there has been
no follow-up to the brief coverage of the revenge murder of Pvt. William
Long by an American Islamic terrorist convert. It seems as though Pvt.
Long's death while defending his country is almost meaningless, as is the
act of treason by his killer.
