“Disgusting that the President is still devoting more time to political fundraising than attending to his greatest responsibility, the protection of Americans.”
“I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:8
The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse as named in Revelation are Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.
It is an apt metaphor for what is occurring in America today. Ebola is now raging in several African nations, Liberia, Sierra Leon, Guinea, and Nigeria.
On September 30 the first African to make it to the U.S. with Ebola was identified. By October 8 he was dead. Ebola has arrived and, despite everything that the various agencies of the Obama Administration are telling us—the Centers for Disease Control and Homeland Security—I have no confidence it will not keep arriving.

DHS secret revealed: Tens of thousands of illegals released during the border crisis didn’t show up for their immigration hearings.
Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.
So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed to. Read more at hotair.com.
In light of Obama’s demand for more tax dollars to “fight ISIS” this article is very important. What is the real motivation for more money? Since 9/11/2001, the United States government has professed that we are being protected from Muslim radicals by waging a desultory war in Afghanistan and Iraq, all the while bringing more and more immigrants to our country under political asylum. Although asylum is certainly a compassionate foreign policy in many instances it should not go unheeded that our country is now being overrun with refugees who are not being vetted properly such as what is occurring on our southern border. And the Muslim presence continues to grow as evidenced here in Alachua County by the lauding of the University of Florida’s newly unveiled Center For Islamic Studies. We are at a critical crossroad for our national sovereignty and citizens need to be prepared for the consequences should we give away our country’s borders.
“Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has selected more than 200,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq.
Syria could soon be added to the mix in the midst of that country’s brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S.”

In what has become the modus operandi of the progressive Republican party the citizenry are about to be nailed yet again over the next three days as the House caves in to Obama’s demands. Not only is Congress poised to deliver everything the tyrant wants it will also revert back to funding the feds with a continuing resolution thus turning its back on the hard won return last year to a real budgetary process. All because Harry Reid has let the budget presented by Congress to sit on his desk with no Senate action. Citizens, pull out your wallets and surrender your sovereignty – we’re in for a nasty, bumpy ride.
“House Republicans are poised to extend the Export-Import Bank’s charter well into next year, despite decrying the agency as an antiquated vestige of crony capitalism. They will fund the federal government until mid-December without much of a fight. And, most notably, they are rapidly moving toward giving the White House authority to arm and train Syrian rebels, despite deep misgivings about their ability to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and even deeper distrust of Obama’s foreign policy.”
HOUSTON, Texas — Journalist James O’Keefe’s latest video brings attention to the lack of security along the U.S. border with Canada and the ability of terrorists to enter the U.S. by boat.
O’Keefe explains that Security experts say the rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq has significantly increased the risk of an attack in the United States. O’Keefe explores the questions, “If an ISIS terrorist could get to Canada, could he hire a boat, could he bring poison or even the Ebola virus? Could he get across Lake Erie and into the United States … and could he do it without getting caught?” Continue reading at Breitbart.com.

A petition entitled: Demand Release of U.S.M.C. Sgt. Tahmooressi Suffering with PTSD from Mexico Imprisonment, was submitted to the White House on May 1, 2014. This is the marine who had just moved to San Diego to seek treatment for his PTSD. He had all of his possessions in his truck, including three U.S. legal firearms, when he reportedly took a wrong turn at the border and wound up in Mexico. He immediately called 911 and declared them to Mexican border agents, but he was arrested nevertheless.
On August 29th the White House finally responded to the petition. Although the threshold requiring a response from the White House is 100,000 signatures, it sat for months before they got around to it. It is interesting to note that there were 134,934 signatures as of that date.
The White House said that “U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, have spoken to Mexican officials at the most highest levels regarding Mr. Tahmooressi’s case…” and that “Our goal is to see that Mr. Tahmooressi is treated fairly during the judicial process…”
Treated fairly? Fair treatment would be to let him go now and put an end to this charade. Nowhere in the White House response did I see any demands for Sgt. Tahmooressi’s immediate release nor any hint of consequences to Mexico if they drag this on and continue to hold him. But what I found the most upsetting about the White House statement was their repeatedly referring (four times) to this marine as Mr. Tahmooressi, as opposed to Sgt. Tahmooressi. This was a complete disregard of, and a slap in the face to his military service to our country. Very sad, but totally predictable of this administration. You may read the petition and the entire White House response here.
From Breitbart.com- Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released the zip codes associated with the Obama administration’s release of 169 immigrants convicted of “homicide-related” offenses who were awaiting deportation proceedings.
Senator Grassley stated “Ensuring that our enforcement policies and procedures are best suited to protect national security, and public safety is paramount,” he added. “To make certain we are doing everything we can in this regard, I am instituting new procedures requiring that an appropriate senior-level supervisor must approve before ICE releases potentially dangerous individuals.”
According to Grassley, Winkowski’s response reveals the government has not placed adequate protections to “ensure public safety and national security.”
“The public needs to know when a person is in the country illegally, and who has been convicted of a homicide, is released into their communities,” Grassley said in a statement. “We’ve introduced legislation that would reverse the court case that the Obama administration is relying on to excuse its irresponsible release of thousands of criminally convicted aliens.”

From Erick Erickson’s RedState.com:
Note from Erick: Please welcome to our front page the always awesome David Horowitz.
Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.
Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

I was driving through the U.S. Border Patrol with my Icam glasses on and got this on Video. I asked the question and got the truth! – Travis Pope
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.
This should not come as any surprise. As with every other money that the Feds offer to States or Municipalities, there are always strings attached. Yes, all your ELECTED officials know this but choose the money.
The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.
Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

So which of our two Senators has it right?
From Sunshine State News- The two U.S. senators representing Florida looked at the immigration crisis this week and pointed the blame at the Obama administration for why it’s continuing. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., took to the Senate floor on Thursday and said the Obama administration was failing to grasp why tens of thousands illegals — including more than 52,000 children who have been caught since October — are crossing the border. Nelson called for the Obama administration to ramp up operations and aid in Latin America to assist the war on drugs.

I hate when most state that the President is an incompetent ineffective president. He is anything but that. He IS successfully transforming America. Same goes for the immigration battle-
Illegal Immigration: Texas Gov. Rick Perry states the obvious when he suggests that the flood of alien children coming to the U.S. from Latin America just might be a result of “ulterior motives” on the part of President Obama.
HOUSTON, Texas–As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S. – Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don’t get dumped in their town. But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down–Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.
Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”
Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
