Yet another straw-man argument from a faltering President , who is quickly now becoming recognized as America's Muslim-in-Chief.....~Refocus Notes
The Daily Caller
President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defense forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.
“The president … will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks, spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at the White House’s daily briefing.
The unprecedented reversal of Americans’ civil-military relations, and of the president’s duty to protect the First Amendment, was pushed by Earnest as he tried to excuse the administration’s opposition in 2012 to the publication of anti-jihadi cartoons by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
The White House voiced its objections in 2012 after the magazine’s office were burned by jihadis, followings its publication of anti-jihadi cartoons.
Earnest’s defense of those 2012 objections came just five days after the magazine’s office was attacked by additional jihadis. Eight journalists, two policeman and a visitor were murdered by two French-born Muslims who objected to the magazine’s criticism of Islam’s final prophet.
In 2012, “there was a genuine concern that the publication of some of those materials could put Americans abroad at risk, including American soldiers at risk,” Earnest said.
“That is something that the commander in chief takes very seriously,” he added, before saying that “the president and his spokesman was not then and will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform.”
In December, Congress approved and the president signed a $585 billion defense budget to train and equip soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen to defend Americans — including journalists — from foreign threats. The nation’s media industry does not have a defense budget to protect soldiers.
Earnest tried to rationalize the president’s opposition to the publication of anti-jihadist materials as a moral duty...

Carson, a Muslim, has accused tea partiers of wanting blacks 'hanging on trees'
By BOB UNRUH
Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., has declared that tea partiers on Capitol Hill would like “to see African-Americans hanging from trees.”
And he suggested that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran.
Now, he’s going to be privy to some of the nation’s most sensitive intelligence.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint him as the first Muslim lawmaker on the body’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Politico reported Tuesday.
A senior Democratic aide said Pelosi announced the move during a weekly caucus of minority Democrats.
It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East.
In a National Review column about Carson just weeks ago, Islam analyst Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, wrote that Carson represents the “Islamists’ choice for the House of Representatives.”
Pipes described Islamists as Muslims “who seek to replace the Constitution with the Quran and apply Islamic law in its entirety and severity.”
“Until now, their campaign contributions have been unknown,” he explained.
But now a Middle East Forum Islamist Watch project has provided a first look at the dimensions of thelobby. It revealed that the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Islamic Circle of North America, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Alliance in North America, Muslim American Society and the Muslim Public Affairs Council contributed about $700,000 to federal candidates in recent years.
The contributions include, he said, $430,000 from CAIR, an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-financing trial in which the federal judge found “ample evidence” of CAIR’s links to Hamas.
“In Indiana, Democratic representative Andre Carson has received almost $34,000 from Islamist sources for his congressional runs since 2008. … That’s the same Carson who appeared at the 2012 annual ICNA-MAS convention, where he encouraged American schools to look ‘at the model we have in our madrasses … where the foundation is the Quran,’” Pipes wrote.
Politico reported in 2011 that Carson, identified as a top lawmaker in the Congressional Black Caucus, said at a CBC event in Miami that some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”
At the time, the report said Carson’s spokesman, Jason Tomcsi, stood by the comments, which were on tape....

It begins as a critical process in which the ruling elite create a problem--then, they anticipate in advance the population's reaction to this particular problem, by conditioning the masses that change is needed in order to avert an impending crisis.
When the people are properly conditioned, eventually, the ultimate agenda item by the ruling elite is then presented as a solution.
However, the solution isn't intended (nor will it solve) the original problem, but rather serve as the basis for a brand new problem often exacerbating the original crisis, as artificed by the ruling class.~Refocus Notes

Following the deadly Charlie Hebdo terror attacks in Paris last week, the Obama administration finally set a date for its global summit on dealing with “extremism.”
However, the conclave will not be focusing on Western and Arab governments’ support for extreme jihadists in Libya, Syria, and beyond; or on extreme gun-control schemes that left French citizens defenseless in the face of terrorism last week; or on extreme anti-free-speech policies purporting to ban criticism of Islam pushed by the United Nations, the European Union, and the Socialist French government.
Instead, the White House “extremism” summit will focus primarily on expanding the power of governments and international bureaucracies — including further censorship of the Internet — under the guise of waging a more vigorous terror war.
Obama’s outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, currently in criminal contempt of Congress for instigating the extreme policy of arming Mexican drug cartels to justify gun conrol and then trying to cover it up, announced the February 18 “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism” over the weekend following the Charlie Hebdo attack.
“We will bring together all of our allies to discuss ways in which we can counteract this violent extremism that exists around the world,” Holder told reporters.
He did not say whether counteracting violent extremism would include an end to U.S. taxpayer-funded weapons shipments and training for Islamic extremists and terrorists working on the Obama-backed “regime change” operation against the relatively secular dictatorship ruling Syria.
However, the White House indicated that the gathering next month would focus on other matters. “The summit will include representatives from a number of partner nations, focusing on the themes of community engagement, religious leader engagement, and the role of the private sector and tech community,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement. “Through presentations, panel discussions, and small group interactions, participants will build on local, state, and federal government; community; and international efforts to better understand, identify, and prevent the cycle of radicalization to violence at home in the United States and abroad.”
The event will also serve to “highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence,” Earnest continued. This likely means continuing and expanding efforts, which The New American reported on late last year, to further empower the dictator-dominated and terror-linked United Nations, the controversial “international law enforcement” agency known as INTERPOL, and more. The Obama spokesman said anti-extremism schemes were “even more imperative” after recent attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris.
Radical Islam and jihad were never mentioned in the administration’s announcements about its summit.

Congressman Randy Weber, the Republican from Texas who took over Ron Paul's seat, had to apologize for recent comments he made with regard to Hitler's having made the trip to Paris, while Obama did not.
Weber tweeted the following on Sunday upon learning of Obama's absence in Paris:
Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn't do it for right reasons
— Randy Weber (@TXRandy14) January 13, 2015
But while it was a loose and very non-direct comparison, the Congressman might indeed be on the right trail.
It was evil Nazi Adolph Hitler who stated of Islam and the predominant Protestant religion of Germany, at the time:
" The Mohammedan religion [Islam] too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"
Indeed, after Paris, many Americans are now wondering if perhaps Obama's constant defense and even praise of Islam, and his conspicuous absence in the recent Paris stand against Islamic extremism by world leaders, might have something more to do with ideology than mere political correctness.
When it comes to Christianity, Islam, and Obama, there are other parallels, which bear notice and simply cannot be refuted.
In a June 2006 speech Obama mocked the Christian Bible, by stating the following:
"Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?" Obama asked in the speech. "Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount? "
We have thoughtfully included a Youtube video, for those who might doubt the veracity of the above quote.
So, it would seem that these two leaders do indeed have at least something of note in common.
In fact, Hitler went on to even glorify Islam:
"The world had already fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing Christianity! -then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism [Islam], that cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so. "
The fact as stated by the evil Nazi leader, that Christianity blocked his [Hitler's] takeover of the world, would seem to conflict directly with Hitler's erroneous contention on the subject.
However, while Hitler was quick to praise Islam, did not Obama, in effect, do the exact same thing in these quotations?
“The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
“The prettiest sound on Earth” is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset. "
“These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
These are but a few of a large number of Obama quotes on Islam.
So, while many within the politically correct realm may react in horror at the comparisons between these two Socialist leaders who're viewed as worlds apart, the comparative points are certainly there, especially when we look at historical US Presidential views between Christianity and Islam.
Nevermind what a preeminent constitutional scholar and Professor had to say on Obama's shredding of the US Constitution in this same comparative vein.
The rest of the story comes to us from the NY Daily News:
"Weber, who now fills the House seat vacated by Rep. Ron Paul, was among the critics faulting Obama for not sending a high-level official to Paris to join world leaders who showed their support after the terrorist shootings last week. The U.S. Ambassador to France represented the U.S. at the event attended by more than 40 heads of state.
But on Tuesday afternoon, Weber issued a statement of apology for the reference.
“I need to first apologize to all those offended by my tweet. It was not my intention to trivialize the Holocaust nor to compare the President to Adolf Hitler," Weber said.
"The mention of Hitler was meant to represent the face of evil that still exists in the world today. I now realize that the use of Hitler invokes pain and emotional trauma for those affected by the atrocities of the Holocaust and victims of anti-Semitism and hate," he added.
Congressman Randy Weber, R (Texas)
The World Jewish Congress said Weber's comment referencing Hitler was made "in very bad taste" and had called on the congressman to apologize.
"Whilst the Congressman is entitled to criticize the President for being absent at Sunday’s solidarity march for the terror victims in Paris, putting Mr. Obama on a level with the most evil mass murderer of all times crosses a red line. We also hope the Republican Party leadership in the House of Representatives will distance itself from this outrageous comparison,” Robert Singer, CEO of the World Jewish Congress, said in a statement.
After the initial backlash to his Twitter message, Weber explained Tuesday morning that he referenced Hitler on social media to show how Obama’s absence proves he “doesn’t understand that America is at risk,” in an interview with the Dallas Morning News."
