“There aren’t a lot of functioning democracies around the world that work this way where you can basically have millionaires and billionaires bankrolling whoever they want, however they want, in some cases undisclosed. What it means is ordinary Americans are shut out of the process.” Barack Obama, White House press conference, Oct 2013.
Yes, indeed. But the millionaires and billionaires doing the damage are Obama’s allies on the liberal-left, not his enemies on the right. So says a devastating report published today by the US Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works.
The report details how an elite group of rich liberal donors such as Tom Steyer and Hank Paulson – “the Billionaire’s Club” – is directing and controlling the far-left environmental movement, “which in turn lobbies and controls major policy decisions and lobbies on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).” Read more and see the full Senate report on Breitbart.com.

Son of Hamas Founder Mosab Hassan Yousef: “Hamas a Terrorist Organization With Humanitarian Face”
From TellMeNowMedia: 7-30-14 – ( Fox News – Sean Hannity ) – The son of the founder of Hamas was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the conflict in Gaza. “Hamas is not a national organization and it’s not a humanitarian organization. Hamas is a terrorist organization with a humanitarian face to it,” Mosab Hassan Yousef said. Yousef said that Hamas has hijacked the Palestinian cause to push its political and religious ideological agendas. He said Hamas wants to destroy the state of Israel and any country that does not believe in its ideology. “My family paid a high price for the sake of Hamas, for the sake of Palestine, and I grew up witnessing all the bloodshed and the dirty politics behind it,” he said on why he is speaking out against Hamas.
“The children of Gaza remind me of myself 20 years ago, how we were crying in the streets, not knowing what’s going on, and the politicians were sending us to death, and they were encouraging more people to die because if the people of Gaza and the children of Gaza stop to die, many people will be out of business,” he said.
Yousef said that he hopes President Barack Obama will make a hard decision and show leadership. He said Hamas must be disarmed to stop future wars.
The Republican head of the Benghazi Select Committee warned Tuesday that no witnesses would be off limits in its upcoming probe and that he would consider going to court, if necessary, to compel testimony.
“I can’t skip over a witness that I think we ought to talk to simply because there is an assertion of either privilege or immunity,” Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina told Fox News in an exclusive interview.
He said that while he has received good cooperation to date, and the issue had not yet arisen, “if you mean to say that ‘not only can they not talk, they don’t have to come,’ you have to litigate that.” Read more at foxnews.com.

On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Cliff, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.
This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living safely somewhere other than Israel and not being awakened by alarm sirens at 5 A.M. with just a little time to make it to a bomb shelter. [Emphasis mine]
Ms. Cliff was hardly alone. In Great Britain, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, in contrast to Prime Minister David Cameron, also declared Israel’s response to Hamas as a “disproportionate form of collective punishment” on the citizens of Gaza.
On July 26 The Times of Israel reported that “Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marched in London and Paris on Saturday, calling out against Israel’s military operation in the Hamas-controlled Palestinian enclave. Read more at factsnotfantasy.blogspot.com.
While preparing to shoot pool with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, President Obama tried to justify his refusal to visit the US/Mexico border by saying that he is “not interested in photo opps.” Well here are 68 of those photo opps that he is not interested in.
Golda Meir served as prime minister of Israel from 1969 to 1974.

I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what we all suspected.
The advertisements attacked Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel and painted conservative Republicans and tea party activists as racists. According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.

NewsBusted’s Jody Miller states that during an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, Obama friend, mentor and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers told Ms. Kelly that he is not proud to be an American. Maybe he should see Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary, America, Imagine a World Without Her to help him change his mind [LOL]?
Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent in history? Sadly, this has not been the case. In reality it has been just the oppisite. Finally journalists other than Fox News are speaking out about the secrecy and outright censorship of the Obama regime.
On July 8th the Society of Professional Journalists sent a letter to President Obama calling him out on the lack of transparency of his administration. It was signed by four members of SPJ including David Cuillier its president, as well as thirty five others in the field of journalism. While this letter may be an example of too little to late, it just might be an indication of the growing frustration with this president by those who were once his most rabid supporters. Me thinks the Pied Piper is out of tune!
You may read the full letter here: http://www.spj.org/news.asp?ref=1253

America Imagine a World Without Her has been extended in theaters until July 17th. Public support for this film has been overwhelming despite the progressive media and critics’ attempts to downplay and even silence this documentary. One of the nations largest retailers, progressice leaning Costco, even pulled the book version from it’s shelves until a huge outcry from the public (spelled We the People) forced them to reverse their decision.
Go see this film and find out why audiences are being moved, energized and even brought to tears: America is playing now at Regal Gainesville Cinema Stadium 14 in Butler Plaza. Click HERE for locations nationwide.
