Obama – Behind the Speech

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last week Barack Obama began his ISIS/ISIL/IS/Islamic State speech with the usual “My fellow Americans”. We all know this is a throwaway line and shouldn’t strike a chord. But it did this time, for I don’t believe Obama thinks of you and me as “his” fellow Americans.

He continued: “As commander-in-chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people.”

Now, does anyone anymore truly believe his highest or any priority is the “security” of the American people? If so, why would he just allow a conga line of terrorists and gang members to cross our southern border? We know they are. It’s too easy not to.

Obama then states: “We cannot erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.” To this I agree, but last I checked ISIL have amassed a force of over 30,000 by some estimates. That is not a “small-group”. If a much smaller, less trained and financed group like Al Qaeda can wreak as much havoc as they have, what can 30,000 (and growing) bloodthirsty killers do? read more

Elephant Cage to be Torn Down

A circular metal antenna nicknamed ‘the elephant cage’ used to intercept radio signals during the Cold War-era will be torn down after 50 years of taking up space at Silver Strand Training Complex in Coronado, San Diego.

As part of a mission to get rid of items they no longer need, the Navy will dispose of the 1,300-foot-diameter contraptions known officially as the Wullenweber Antenna Array.

Wullenweber technology and the finer facts about its creation remain a bit of a mystery as do many details kept secret by the Cold War-era. The mysterious structures were peppered all over the world as a means of intercepting enemy radio signals from Eastern Europe all the way to the Middle East.

Everyone Must Be Included…Almost

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In his rather mundane speech the other night, Barack Obama said among the other nonsense he spouted, that the new Iraqi government must be more inclusive. A stable Iraqi government must be one that represents the countries plethora of religious and ethnic minorities – that all must be represented.

He said: “Once an inclusive government is in place, I’m confident it will be easier to mobilize all Iraqis against ISIL. That’s why I’ve insisted that additional U.S. action depend upon Iraqis forming an inclusive government…”

John “Lurch” Kerry went to Iraq to meet with the new government and support their efforts to promote “unity”. He too wants them to be more inclusive.

Everywhere it seems someone is promoting the idea of inclusivity. In 2011, the HuffPo posted an article of their belief that Israel must “Create a More Inclusive Atmosphere”, meaning to “include” more Arabs.

Yossi Vardi, an entrepreneur who is heavily invested in the booming Israeli “tech” economy has been working to “include” sectors of Israel’s population who are “largely outside the workforce”. He insists that the Ultra-Orthodox Jews and Israel’s Arab population have been left out. “Israel tech needs to be more inclusive”, he claims. read more

Cruz Walks Out on “Christian” Conference

from Breitbart:

An extraordinary thing happened on Wednesday night in Washington, D.C. More than one thousand people were gathered for a dinner in honor of the newly formed organization In Defense of Christians.

It should have been a victorious, celebratory moment―and for a short time it was.

The spirit was jubilant as we all took in the fact that at last the crisis affecting Middle East Christians had hit the mainstream. Many of us have been toiling away for years on this issue, happy if we could get ten people in a room to hear our case. Here we were, with Patriarchs and prelates from 12 different countries, and earlier in the day no less than 17 different members of Congress had addressed the gathering. It was an evening to celebrate. read more

Wisconsin Voter ID Law Reinstated

from HotAir:

A surprise decision from the 7th Circuit will allow Wisconsin to enforce its voter-ID law for the upcoming gubernatorial election. The court ruled that recent changes that give citizens more options to gain easier access to qualifying identification make the law legitimate and non-discriminatory, and noted that the statute in Wisconsin is “materially identical to Indiana’s photo ID statute, which the Supreme Court held valid in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, 553 U.S. 181 (2008).” The changes in access to state-issued identification eliminated the differences between the Indiana and Wisconsin cases, the court ruled in lifting a temporary restraining order: read more
