Last night during the State of the Union address, President Obama refused to acknowledge that Islamic extremism is even "a thing."
Instead, he said the greatest threat facing America is climate change.

Many Americans are now beginning to both believe and even affirm that Conservative opponents of Obama who were sounding the alarm bells back in 2008 were definitively correct in their assertions and for very good reason.
The President's authoritarian actions have placed him into political isolation across a score of policy fronts while defenders have dropped back into wildly ridiculous counter-arguments in an effort to make Obama's actions seem both reasonable and justified, when in fact they are anything but.
In point of fact, the NSA is monitoring every single move of every American via their phones, computers and even travels, while ignoring the threat from hundreds of thousands of Illegals pouring over the border, some certainly hostile, should give every single American thoughtful pause regardless of political leaning, and yet, it apparently does not.
In addition, a recent report from the Bureau of Labor & Statistics detailed that fact that since the year 2,000 virtually all of the 5.7 million new jobs created in that time period went to either legal or illegal aliens, leaving natural born Americans out in the cold. Yet Obama mocks and insults his concerned opposition for not fulfilling his desires, while simultaneously ignoring their constituent issues, and then blaming them for intransigence, calling it gridlock. The President then routinely threatens an executive bypass of voter representatives in Congress, while a seemingly vacuous pseudo-media claps and begs for more.
Objectifying onlookers might view these manifestations as being not the actions of a concerned President, but rather symptomatic of an underlying disorder commonly associated with pathological narcissism as complicated by a tendency towards authoritarianism.
Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out
However, it's Obama's actions with regard to the Mideast and Islamic Extremism, which now has many concerned foreign policy experts wondering what could possibly be next, from the President.
Obama's promise to 'stand with them' (the Muslims) has seemed to have taken full flight even as the winds have certainly shifted into an ugly political direction, but it's also which brand of Islamic extremism which Obama seems to be supporting that has many alarmed.
Indeed, in February of 2011, National Director of Intelligence James Clapper appeared before a US intelligence committee and iterated to everyone in attendance that one of the primary players in the Egyptian Revolution, the Muslim Brotherhood, was a "secular group dedicated to non-violence."
It was only a few months later and after the Brotherhood took over that the Muslim Brotherhood began crucifying, hanging and beheading Egyptian Christians at an unprecedented rate.
Although largely forgotten now, we can obviously see that Clapper's testimony was not one of fact, but rather reflected an erroneous worldview which both Obama and his Regime wants America to see, in abeyance to a totally differing truth which they would rather keep hidden.
This hidden worldview by America's leadership, in fact, speaks to what both could and should be defined as a clear and present danger to America and its future. However, Obama's polished theatrical skills in concert with the warped optics reflected by a largely co-opted media, leaves many not a little dazed if not completely confused as to the President's overall agenda.
Moreover, we can see this phenomenon by meaningfully noting what the President has done, in responding to each Mideast event, as opposed to what the President has obtusely stated, prior to his overall reaction by noting the penultimate response and the hindmost outcome. While the President seems to have been finally if not reluctantly dragged to a war-party footing of stopping the spread of ISIS, Obama has instituted what could be termed mini-pin prick attacks designed to irritate the enemy, at best and anger his Generals, at worst.
Further, the President has sought to now intensify the arming of the same radical Islamic element of Syrian rebel fighters, who eventually became the ISIS -caliphate state, in the first place.
While Obama has consistently proffered the open hand of friendship towards America's avowed enemies within most if not all of the Islamic world, the President has chillingly shunned America's Israeli allies in the Mideast.
Recently Obama stunningly halted shipments of US hellfire missiles to Israel even while arming and funding the same Al Qaeda rebels in Syria who eventually broke off and became the brutal Caliphate building terrorist group known as ISIS.
This because the deadly terrorist group Al Qaeda could supposedly no longer accept ISIS' radical extremist views if one can imagine that. Nor are Obama's true feelings concerning Israel's Jewish President a big secret when an open mic incident in late 2011 caught Obama bemoaning the fact that he had to deal with the Israeli leader on a daily basis.
In fact, even while the terrorist organization, Hamas, was lobbing rockets into Israel from Palestine, the US President continually scolded and even warned Israel for firing back and counter-attacking the bloodthirsty Islamic group in a clearly defensive posture, prompting many to ask exactly whose side Obama was on.
During the HAMAS missile firing conflict with Israel, a transcript of a heated conversation between Obama and Israel President Netanyahu was released in 'The Times of Israel' which was subsequently translated into English, and published in the Wall Street Journal, as follows:
Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.
Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?
BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.
BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.
BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.
BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza.
BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.
BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.
BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks –
BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.
The question which should be asked might center on whether or not the President also had such a conversation with HAMAS leadership, which started the conflict in the first place.
So, is the President siding with America's most passionately avowed enemies or America's greatest ally? Perhaps the answer lies partially within the fact that in February 2014, prior to the ISIS rampage, Obama actually referred to the medieval inclined terrorist group invading Iraq as a "JV team."
In truth, Obama's insidious attitude towards the nation of Israel has recently instituted a modern-day "Exodus" from the Democrat party by a number of Jewish US citizens, according to recent reports. In fact, Obama even stated the following as an exclamation point to these rather telling facts:
“Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival,”~ Barack H. Obama
However, the penultimate slap in the face by the Obama Regime against Israel occurred when Secretary of State John Kerry sided with two of Israel's greatest opponents, the nations of Turkey and Qatar, which both fund and back Hamas, in order to broker a cease-fire with Israel at Egypt's original behest and an event which the Washington Post described, as follows:
"By turning to Turkey and Qatar, Kerry also enhanced their position in the regional power game. That’s contrary to the interests and desires of the United States’ traditional allies, such as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the moderate Palestinian camp headed by Abbas."
Either way, despite the vast majority of Americans who support Israel, Obama's allegiance against the consent of the governed in America has increasingly inclined towards siding with Islamic terrorist-states as opposed to democratically elected non-Islamist allies of the US.
The question is why?
The issue seemed to have begun in earnest when Obama sought to topple Presidential dictator Hosni Mubarak's peace-keeping authoritarian regime in Egypt, in apparent favor of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover. Egypt is populated primarily by Sunni Muslims, which are the same Islamic sects which comprise the terrorist group ISIS or ISIL which, once again, is now overtaking Iraq.
Not by coincidence, the Muslim Brotherhood is also comprised of Muslims belonging to the Sunni sect of Islam, as does Wahhabism or Salafism, both forms of ultra-extremist Islamism.
After Sunni leader Mohamed Morsi took over Egypt as President and promptly suspended the constitution, the Islamists came out in full force and through Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood followers, began a form of religious cleansing which include killing and crucifying of Christians all over Egypt, eventually causing the Egyptian military to step in and take over due largely to populous demands.
During the same time period of Morsi's reign of terror, Obama had finalized an agreement in which F-16 fighters, tanks, and billions of dollars in funding was being sent over by the US. When the Egyptian military finally took over the government, Obama promptly halted both the transfer of aid and arms.
So, the first question one might begin asking could be centered upon whether or not a declaration of martial law is acceptable to Obama. The next question might be that if martial law is acceptable-- then why is a martial law takeover, by the military at the behest of the governed, then somehow not? In essence, "what difference at this point does it make?"
Of note is the now buried fact that the Obama Regime actually facilitated the overthrow of Western ally Mubarak, in favor of the western hating Muslim Brotherhood. According to an article which appeared in the UK Telegraph on January 28, 2011, agents of the US Government were fully engaged in the overthrow of the Mubarak Regime.
"The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police."
"On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011."
So, it would appear that the Obama Regime was at the very least culpable in the destabilization of one of America's and Israel's most stable Mideast allies.
With the nation of Egypt now economically and culturally in tatters, one wonders if the Egyptians are enduringly appreciative of Obama's brand of "Change We Can Believe In?"
Or perhaps stolen democratic elections and regular democratic elections are apparently viewed as one and the same in Obama's increasingly warped Acorn-inspired viewpoint. Either way, Obama seemed to come down squarely in support of an Islamic extremist takeover of Egypt and if not for Egypt's military, would have achieved just that.
In essence , Obama supported the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt which by the way, is primarily Sunni Muslim, against the secular military's recapture of the government in order to restore full order and put an end to the religious cleansing.
Despite Obama's consistent promises with regard to red lines and chemical weapons when it came to Syria, Obama's desire to immediately attack and bring down Bashar al Assad's autocratic government, was stifled by political pressure leveled by none other than the American people from all sides of the political perspective.
It was after a hotly contested chemical attack in Syria when Obama came under withering fire from most of the world due to his much earlier remarks on the theoretical use of chemical weapons there, and his militaristic answer:
“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
Some time after the attack occurred, Obama began posturing for an attack in Syria and in the face of none other than Russia.
However, at the same time Obama's war-footing began, most if not all of America stood up and let loose a withering stream of invective concerning Obama's insertion of America into a civil war where America holds no true interests.
Even worse, there seemed to be no lesser evil involved in this conflict due simply to the fact that Obama and America by default, would have been supporting a bloodthirsty pack of Islamic terrorist rebels over a non-Islamic dictatorship.
While many pundits felt that the Syrian rebels were mostly moderate, other experts were adamant that, in fact, there were no good guys to side with concerning the Syrian conflict. However, Obama seemed to be clearly inclined to back the Christian-killing Sunni Islamic rebels over a Christian-protecting Syrian dictatorship.
So, Obama supports the Sunni Islamic Extremists against Syrian government leadership which is composed primarily of Alawite's, a sect of Shia Islam....
The plot thickens.
During the Islamist-inspired Arab Spring uprising in Libya, Obama eventually provided NATO airstrike support in routing Libyan forces which ultimately led to the brutal killing of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi. In fact, stories even then, began surfacing which spoke to the fact that Al Qaeda both was and still is a significant part of the rebel fighting forces in Libya. However, these facts seemed more to spur Obama on for an ultimate takedown of each government, which ultimately resulted in each becoming extraordinarily destabilized, to this day.
Meanwhile as with virtually every other nation being overrun by brutal Islamic factions bent upon the genocidal extinction of both Christians and other faiths, Obama after the fact has completely ignored these countries. It's almost as if Obama's entire mission in the Mideast has been built upon the complete and continued destabilization of each nation while Islamic extremism descends upon of these countries turning them into pockets of virtual hell on Earth.
Muammar Gadhafi, the dictator who was ultimately attacked and deposed by NATO under Obama's leadership, was a follower of Islamic Quranism, which traditionally rejects all forms of Sunnism and Sharia law.
A quantifiable pattern begins to emerge.
The Complex Question of Obama and Iran
While the Arab Spring took firm hold in the Mideast and then started to take root in Iran, Obama became uncharacteristically silent. With Obama's either verbal or direct support of Sunni overthrows in virtually every Mideast destabilization agenda, Obama was surprisingly mute during the Iranian Green Revolution of 2009, the question becomes, why?
Iran is primarily Shia in its Islamic adherence thereby breaking the Sunni pattern established thus far--or does it?
The one thing to remember is that Iran, unlike each of the other government takedowns, is headed by a theocratic government system of Mullahs and dominated by Sharia law.
The other key element to note is the fact that Iran's cultural submersion in Islam and the fact that it is non-Arab, marks a significant threshold between it and other Mideast government topplings. In addition, Iran has been noted to be at the core of a wide number of varied Islamic militant groups including HAMAS, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organizations.
In addition, according to the American Univeristy in Cairo: "Since its inception, the Islamic Republic has calculated that the Arab street would ultimately overthrow pro-American dictatorships and the balance of forces that favored Israel. Iran's long-term regional security calculation has thus been predicated on championing the Arab street and rejecting any engagement with Washington designed to rehabilitate Iran as a compliant U.S. ally."
A meaningful answer, to be certain, in addressing the overall question, but as to the other side of the equation, there is another dynamic at play with regard to the Obama Regime's worldview of Iran.
According to Mideast expert, historian, and Professor Emeritus Bernard Lewis, "In a sense, Iranian Islam is a second advent of Islam itself, a new Islam sometimes referred to as Islam-i Ajam. It was this Persian Islam, rather than the original Arab Islam, that was brought to new areas and new peoples: to the Turks, first in Central Asia and then in the Middle East in the country which came to be called Turkey, and India."
Ultimately, what is difficult for many western Christians to understand, is the fact that "As Islam was diffused into the Turkic world through Persian[Iranian] Sufi influences (both on Sunni & Shia Islam), it sought to establish a commonality of belief with the indigenous [Islamic] religious practices," --and there you have the simplest of answers to the most complex of questions, the perfect ingredient in establishing the penultimate goal of an all-encompassing Mideast Caliphate.
In addition, having Iranian born Valerie Jarrett as the President's Chief of Staff, probably doesn't hurt very much either.
So, while Iran is primarily Shia in its Islamic views, the Persian (non-Arab) Iranians represent a relatively newer form of Islam which seeks to unite all of Islam via Sufi influences, which therefore seems to speak to Obama's overall solicitude regarding all things Iran.
With all of the facts surrounding Obama's hasty retreat from Shia dominated Iraq, where the US actually established what should have been a pipe dream for Obama (that being a Democracy established by Islamic adherents) instead Obama shunned a status of forces agreement and bolted all American Troops for the door.
This allowed ISIS which is nothing much than a slightly bloodier version of Al Qaeda, to establish itself as the preeminent power in Iraq. The primary Obama reaction of note might be the very thing that ties a pretty bow upon the entirety of this article, from US News and World Report:
"Obama blamed the Iraqi government, led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, for unfairly stacking the security leadership with Shiite Muslims and shutting out the Sunni minority, which accounts for about a third of the population."
"We can't do it for them," Obama said. "This should be a wake-up call."
Once again, Obama seems far too put out over the exclusion of Sunni's from a particular government equation and blames the Iraqi Prime Minister for the brutal savagery of ISIS Sunni Terrorists.
So, as we can see in virtually each Mideast case, Obama's worldview seems to dangerously assert the more radical Sunni or Sufi Islamist worldview which is the very thing that's essential for the eventual Super-Caliphate which both could and would terrorize the modern world, with a special emphasis on the entirety of Christendom and the West.
Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Cabinet
The next question, with regard to which branch of Islam Obama is most partial to, should naturally center upon some rather questionable additions to the President's White House Staff.
There are thousands of stories posted on the internet about these radical staff members, but the question naturally becomes, are these stories even true?
-First on the list is Arif Alikhan, who has been serving in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since 2006. Alikhan was later elevated to the position of Professor of Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, in 2010, by Obama.
Alikhan is a devout Sunni Muslim.
-Next up is Mohamed Magid, who as a naturalized citizen, immigrated to the United States from the Sudan in 1987. Magid is President of the Islamic Society of North America and was added to Obama's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2011.
Magid studied Islam under African Sunni scholars, one of which being his own father, the Grand Mufti of Sudan, making Magid a Sunni Muslim.
-Third on our list is Mohammed Elibiary, an advisor to Obama's Homeland Security Staff since 2010 and a radical Islamist Cleric whose militant stance regarding Islam in America, has made him a veritable pariah among high-info Conservative journalists across the US. Elibiary recently got into a Twitter fight online, when he tweeted "America is an Islamic country," and then, rather than refuse to apologize for the obvious error, he compounded on his rant.
While Elibiary's list of offenses against American tradition an,d even perhaps law, are both long and versatile, his bio is rather suspiciously difficult to lock down. However, while Elibiary is noted to be an admirer of the murderous Shiite Ayatollah Khomeini, he lists the father of modern Islamic fundamentalism, Sayyem Qutb, as a major inspiration and a positive political influence on his life, which every American should read. This, in addition to Elibiary's many and varied connections with the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, would place Elibiary squarely within the Sunni Muslim camp of jihadist belief systems.
Elibiary was forced to resign from the White House even as this article was being written, largely due to his extremist Islamic viewpoints threatening to reveal Obama's Islamist world view.
-Next, on Obama's Islamist list of advisers is none other than Rashad Hussain, who was named as both Deputy of Obama's counsel in 2009 and also as a special envoy to the President's Organization of the Islamic Conference in 2010.
Interestingly, Hussain, who was born in Wyoming in 1978 to US naturalized migrants from India, is a recipient of the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans, which was founded by, and named after, George Soros's older brother and sister-in-law.
While Hussain may be considered as one of the more "moderate" members of Obama's Islamist advisers, Hussain's constantly surfacing political connections within the US seem to consistently orbit around Muslim Brotherhood activists, which would tentatively place him within the Sunni group of Islamists.
-Our fifth Obama advising Islamist, Salam al-Marayati, is the founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, which is a group based out of LA created for the defense of Islamic extremists and violent offenders. al-Marayeti is both a Hamas and Hezbollah sympathizer and outwardly despises the nation of Israel. al-Marayati was born in Baghdad, Iraq and migrated to the US at age four. He is also married to Doctor and Islamic Muslim Women's League activist Laila al-Marayati, a Sunni Muslim who hails from Palestine.
Extraordinarily outspoken and active, al-Marayati, was named as Obama's representative of the U.S. government at the annual Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe human-rights conference. A frequent and repeat defender of Palestine and Hamas, each of which are considered Sunni Islam organizations, in addition to his Sunni Triangle roots, prominent in Baghdad, most likely places al-Marayeti in the Sunni camp of Islamists.
-Finally, on Obama's Islamist leadership positioning is a man named Eboo Patel, who serves on Obama's inaugural Advisory Council concerning Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. Patel, who describes forced out of government communist Van Jones as an “American patriot,” and a true giant of history, was born and raised in Illinois of parents who emigrated from Mumbai, India.
Patel, according to Discover the networks, enjoys ties to former Leftist Terrorist "Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, in addition to Islamists Rashid Khalidi, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf." Patel was also listed on the American Society of Muslim Advancement website as a "top Muslim leader of tomorrow."
Patel states of his illogically rampant American disillusionment: “I was kind of taught the same myths about America, a land of freedom and equality and justice, et cetera, et cetera,” a thing he was taught differently under Bill Ayers, who finds America to be essentially void of any true justice. Patel's Islamic identification stems from his parents belief system, that being Ismailism which is a branch of Shiite Islam. Even more interestingly, while espousing an inter-faith impetus globally, Patel individually seems to believe in his own familial traditions with Shia Islam, despite taking a Sunni Muslim for wife. Patel even quotes T.S. Eliot, in specific abeyance to his dishonoring of American tradition, writing, "A tradition is not simply inherited; It is something acquired only by great labor." Patel would inarguably, be the sole member who falls under the Shiite form of Islam.
Aside from Obama's treatment of various Mideast countries undergoing Islamization, there are then the admittedly bizarre references to Islam which Obama has made continuously over the prior six years. To be sure, Obama seems to have become the world of Islam's most ardent defender right next to now almost forgotten 'Nation of Islam' leader Louis Farrakhan, who must be under a gag order judging from his overall retreat from the front pages of US media.
As recently as September, 2014, Obama has made several rather stunning remarks while addressing both the nation and the UN, regarding the terrorist group ISIS and Islam.
"Now let's make two things clear ISIL is not Islamic"~Barack Obama, 9/11/14
"We face a more lethal and ideological form of terrorist who have perverted one of the world's great religions"
The interesting thing with regard to Obama and his many flowery references to Islam, we could find no instance of Obama having ever referred to Christianity or Judaism, among many others, as one of the world's great religions.
Obama, who has serially used, and even attacked, the protestant Bible to make a case for his social agenda, seems to have come out in an almost bizarre and continuous defense of Islam, throughout his Presidency. Even while the President is in the process of being sued by the Catholic Church for ignoring their Constitutional right to freedom from Governmental interference, he has simultaneously praised virtually any and every facet of Islam, to the point of even relanguaging any references to Islamic terrorism, by removing the "Islamic" out of the explanation.
From the Washington Times: The White House's official policy of banning the word "Islam" in describing America's terrorist enemies is in direct conflict with the U.S. military's war-fighting doctrine now guiding commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan.
John O. Brennan, President Obama's chief national security adviser for counter-terrorism, delivered a major policy address on defining the enemy. He laid out theWhite House policy of detaching any reference to Islam when referring to terrorists, be it al Qaeda, the Taliban or any other group.
So, why such a terrible need to "defend" Mr. President?
The final mystery, however, is at the end of a particular video, where in a perfect dialect, Obama tells the people of Turkey that he is one of them. We know that Obama is not Turkish, so then what exactly did he mean?
Perhaps the true issue is one of wondering why Obama feels the need to hide his true beliefs from the American people and one particularly alarming question that none appear to want to answer.
In Kenya, where most of Obama's siblings currently live, the Predominant form of Islam being practiced is Sunni Islam. In fact, in 2009 a rather strange story was published at The Daily Nation in which the Church of Mormon tried fervently to convert Obama's Grandmother, Mama Sarah Obama, from Muslim to Mormon. The effort was almost successful, however at the last moment, family members prevailed and stopped here from converting.
"Attempts to convert US President Barack Obama’s grand mother to Christianity flopped on Saturday at the 11th hour after family members opposed the move."
"Although Mama Sarah Obama had dressed up for the day, her son, Saidi Obama, and other family members were adamant that she would not attend a baptism ceremony organised by the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA)."
However, the ties don't end there.
Even Obama's stepfather, Lolo Soetoro was also a Sunni Islamist in Indonesia, where virtually the entire nation observes Sunni Islam as its most prevalent form of religion, which according to our findings, is the Islamic group with which Obama most consistently identifies , both in action and words and apparent allegiance.
Among all religious groups, Muslims gave Obama the highest approval rating, at 72 percent, meanwhile, shortly after an Islamist beheaded a Christian lady in Oklahoma, the White House Sent an actual Thank You' note to the Beheader's Oklahoma Mosque Congregation.
While simultaneously soft-attacking Christianity in America for the past six years of his Presidency, Obama in an interview originally aired with French Canal Plus News, on June 1st, 2009, wrongly indicated that America is 'one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.'
This action could be accredited to Obama's consistent Presidential acts of "taqiyya"--a term, defined as a tacit and accepted "act of lying or concealment on behalf of Islam."
Obama, in the 2009 interview, went on to state "we have to educate ourselves more effectively in Islam," which apparently is a veiled attempt at evangelizing Islam as widely as possible across America by the increasingly embattled Islamist-oriented President.
"Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation"~ Barack Obama, 6/28/06
According to Pew Research, when comparing various Muslim populations across the world in what is referred to as a "weighted map," the US barely even appears as being visually identifiable, in a Muslim population comparative graphic.
Additionally, Wikipedia states that the US is actually ranked at 38th, with regard to Muslim population comparisons.
Conversely to Obama's rhetoric, America does in fact house the world's largest Christian population, and by far, with well over two-thirds of its population identifying as believers of Jesus Christ.
According to the highly sourced and referenced website Wallbuilders, Obama's anti-infidel approach towards all things "non-Islamic" seems more globally "anti-Biblical" rather than "merely" anti-Christian:
"Perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. When Obama's hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.
Obama Plans To Fight-Back Against US Media's Anti-Jihad Articles For 'Safety' of US Soldiers (Islam)
Moreover, numerous websites include extensive case- lists of example after example of actual instances rather than mere rhetoric, owing to Obama's shall we say increasingly "anti-Christ" stance with regard to all things Judeo-Christian.
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?"
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 undeniably, 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.
Nor has it been lost on many informed Americans when Obama, initially in his regime, sought to criminalize via a seriously flawed report, much if not most of his political opposition titled:
The redacted report sought to warn America of the dangers posed by same-sex marriage critics, pro-lifers, and even groups concerned with adhering to the U.S. Constitution, among many others.
Moreover, in a report by the Daily Caller, the Department of Homeland Security “has shown a keen interest in monitoring and warning about outspoken conservatives, and takes a very different approach in monitoring political Islamists, according to a 2011 memo on protecting the free speech rights of pro-Shariah Muslim supremacists.”
“In a checklist entitled “Countering Violent Extremism Dos and Don’ts” the DHS’s Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties notifies local and national law enforcement officials that it is Obama administration policy to consider specifically Islamic criticism of the American system of government “legitimate.”
Moreover, traditional America’s opposition is automatically invalidated while Islamic opposition bears serious consideration. This, even as the President and his regime has continually sought to downplay Islamic extremism and the dangers it poses to America.
Most Americans had no idea that Obama’s “Transformation of America” would seem to include the downplay of traditional American values in favor of Islamist preferences. Obama has never been willing to call out Islamic extremism, in example after example, however it's not just the extremism aspect that quells the regime, it's the unwillingness to acknowledge Islamic involvement, which has been seen in repeated instances from both this President and his top officials.
Extreme, one can see, is within the eye of the beholder and Obama views Americans which hold both Constitutional and Christian principles of pro-life and pro-gun rights as purely extremist views in opposition to his own, while exhibiting tacit approval regarding 'exculpatory' examples of Islamic extremism.
Finally, much has been made of Obama's acumen with regard to his formative rise at Harvard law school and Obama's so-called expertise with regard to the US Constitution, however, what many do not know is the presence of an actual inscription on Harvards' ' Wall of Justice, ' which is located on the entrance wall to the school.
“O ye who believe!
Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses
To Allah, even as againstYourselves, or your parents,
Or your kin, and whether
It be (against) rich or poor:
For Allah can best protect both.”
Is scripture taken directly from Islams' holy book present on the Harvard wall, and its appropriately enough at this transformatively Progressive school.
Unfortunately, in the reams of evidence we came across in accumulating this article, much had to be thrown out, however, not because of the sagacity of the material, but rather because the article could have easily taken up the space required of a very long book. We decided to include a large number of lesser known facts, in that vein, rather than those which are already commonly populating websites all over Christendom, and beyond.
In conclusion, while Obama [may] not be the infamous "anti-Christ" so often mentioned in the Holy Bible, he'll certainly do quite keenly until the real thing arrives.
Obama's actions are parenthetically directed towards the assimilation of both Sunni Islam's culture and its practices into America, along with a large number of its radicals, apparently, both in thought and in deed, and Obama will defend the basic tenets of Islam and its diaspora, no matter the penultimate consequences, to us all.

There remains much confusion over the required Obamacare mandated guidelines, especially since the President has changed so many things via verbal decree--not even the US government itself seems confident with regard to anything involving health insurance.
Much like Biblical experts, one would need to be an Obamacare scholar in order to know and understand what exactly is going on with the 2,700 page monstrosity of a law which details painstakingly, the ifs, ands, or buts concerning you as an individual and perhaps even your company, regarding US socialized healthcare.
However fear not, the main thing to remember is that your old plan with the $ 500 deductible, and a very low co-payment, was cheap- junk insurance says the President--this new stuff is uber-fantastic--in that it offers super-high deductibles into the $ 5,000 range and beyond--and even co-insurance so high, it will take either years or an equity line on your home for you to pay it off!
How cool is that?
A very special Thank you to both the Democrat party, and most especially President Obama, is in order, bearing in mind that, according to the Obamacarefacts.com website, it's the Heritage Foundation's fault, because of an opinion they published back in 1989. Never mind the fact that the political Left is now experiencing its worse rate of voter attrition, in about a century [because of the Heritage article].
Gee, they never listened to what Conservatives have to say, right?
But, aside from all of that, don't worry--it's only your health--and social engineering by the government always works out to everyone's advantage, I mean just look at how low the US deficit is now and how much the government has saved up in the lockbox that is the Social Security Trust Fund--Oh, and don't worry about all of those IOU's from the US treasury in there, they're the same as cash!
Only $18.5 Trillion and steadily climbing? Just think of the deficit as a cash fund which we can enjoy--not our problem; besides, our children need to learn about debt the hard way--tough love-- and from the Progressives, finally.
Since this website has an unusual amount of knowledge on all things politic, and many things health insurance/Obamacare, the following may help address many questions and concerns.
The first question being, "I haven't signed up yet--so am I screwed, along with my family?
The answer is, no, you're not, at least not yet; due to recent changes, the deadline for Obamacare signups has been extended.
The open enrollment period for Obamacare compliant health plans for individuals will now run from November 15th, 2014 through February 15th, 2015. You are sooo lucky.
Here's how it works:
If you sign up for any Obamacare plan by the 15th of the month for any month before March, you can still obtain coverage for 2015, on the first day of the following month.
In other words, if you sign up for a plan on January the 14th, your coverage will begin on February the 1st.
If you were to sign up after the 15th, your coverage would begin on the 1st day of the month after the immediately upcoming month. So, let's say you sign up on January the 20th, then your coverage will then begin on March the 1st.
This coverage inception scheme holds true until February the 15th, which is the deadline, after that, "No coverage for you!"--unless of course you fit into what is referred to as a qualifying event.
According to healthcare.gov, a qualifying event could be any of the following:
~Moving to a new state
~Certain changes to your income
~Changes in your family size (for example, if you marry, divorce, or have a baby)
~Gaining membership in a federally recognized tribe or status as an Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) Corporation shareholder.
We really liked the last qualifying event--that final Obamacare vote from Alaska was, indeed, integral--or, maybe Elizabeth Warren is actually from Alaska....Hmmm.
But what if you don't sign-up by the deadline and you don't have a qualifying event?
Well, now, here's where the utter brilliance of Obamacare really kicks in--you see--if you couldn't afford health insurance before, now you're going to be penalized for falling within that arbitrary line between subsidy and so uber-wealthy you deserve a penalty--besides--you're probably white and in the middle class, and you're the true problem with America, anyway!
So, what are the penalties?
The maximum penalty will be 2% of your income for the entire family, or a minimum of $325 per adult and $162.50 per child
So, if your household made $75,000 in 2015 and you didn't have coverage, the penalty would be about $1,500 and will be assessed by the IRS.
In any case, the key date to remember for Obamacare will Be February the 15th, 2015--after that-- you won't be able to sign up for any plan, either inside or outside of the health insurance marketplace.
Which, come to think of it, is really cool; I mean, before Obamacare, which promised coverage for anyone at any time and under any circumstances, you could gain coverage any time you wanted it. Now, with the optimized flexibility of Obamacare, you only have a tiny little window to get coverage.
Just think of it as being governmentally engineered as certifiably procrastination proof, or else.
What Else (Gulp)
The main thing to remember, if you already have Obamacare, is that you had better be super sure of your income for the upcoming year--especially if your insurance is being subsidized by the government.
You see, your subsidy is based upon your income, and it's your income, not your health, that determines your premium, silly!
So, what if you estimated your premium too low? Well, that's where the even more brilliant aspect of Obamacare shines through. Because if you figured your income too low and your subsidy is too high, you may owe a lot more in the form of taxes to the US Government.
According to H&R Block, about half of all the Obamacare subsidies being given to folks for their insurance were too high, so what does that mean? It means that people receiving the subsidy will be taxed for the subsidy.
So, if you're a Liberal and you're on Obamacare, and you think the government should be demanding more in taxes, well now is your time to shine like the star we all knew you could be!
But, there's even more, for instance, if you get a pay raise and don't report it to the government, you could be in for a nasty shock at tax time, because you may actually owe all of your Obamacare subsidies back to the US Government!
It just keeps getting better and better! Are you as excited as we are?
Due to, ahem, the 2014 elections and a rash of uber-lobbying, the employer mandate was delayed all the way back until September the 1st of 2015.
So, what happens after that?
Well, that's when the pain and excitement really begins, as many employers will be dumping full-time employees in favor of part-timers, at an even more harried rate--while getting pounded by IRS penalties, etc..
Meanwhile, Congress is wrangling with the Obama regime on how to define a full-time worker, in addition to the government mandates requiring employers to make employee healthcare options far easier to read and understand--this from the same folks who now require over 800 tax filing forms and counting.
Not only will those in employer groups be impacted, now those who receive funds from their employers to buy Obamacare insurance will be taxed for these funds as regular income.
So for business with 100 or more employees the pain begins in 2015.
For businesses with 50 to 99 employees, the mandate will not begin until 2016.
For businesses with fewer than 50 employees there is no mandate, but, they have something else to look forward to, and that's skyrocketing rates which may rise by as much as 40%, due to all the mayhem introduced into an increasingly government-controlled,hyper- limited marketplace.
This will mean that many businesses will be forced to toss out free health insurance, or send their employees to the state or federal exchanges for coverage, assuming they stay in business.
All in all, what we are seeing is a burdensome system being mandated on virtually every level by government, for a benefit which was both expected and freely given to employees by employers, over the past half-century, often at little or no charge.
This, so that you could save $ 2,500 per year on your insurance, which, in fact, will now cost about $ 10,000 more, offer limited networks, while gifting Americans with sub-standard [junk] high deductible/high-co-insurance plans.
Oh, and you don't get to keep your doctor and you certainly don't get to keep your old plan, because the opposition to all of this was a bunch of racists, mean-spirited bigots...well, at least when it comes to sub-standard, government controlled health insurance, as it turns out.

Many people may not yet have heard of Plum Island, which lies at the very heart of a collection of news stories we are featuring.
However, Plum Island and its history represent the very heart of what has happened and is happening in our America of today.
You see, Plum Island is a US government research facility used for bio-warfare and genetic research, which is also allegedly responsible for a host of horror stories concerning infectious plagues and misshapen beasts, which have somehow escaped from the island, and made it onto the mainland.
We only know of the dead ones, which have washed up.....
The Island is located in Long Island Sound, New York, but is now in the process of being slowly transported into the heartland of America, to Manhatten Kansas, where the facility is to be eventually re-located.
So, what do the horrors of Plum Island have to do with a a collection of American political stories?
Everything, quite frankly, indeed, the nightmare of breeding infectious bio-genic disease, and breeding infectious bio-political disease, may seem at odds and yet either vehicle of infection can be just as lethal to our America of today.
Point being, both the horrors of the Plum Island facility and the horrors of political dis-information are now being transported into the heartland of America, at the US (Obama Regime) government's behest, and it's difficult to tell which one may prove to be the more deadly.
But first, lets delve into a little Conservative schadenfreude, guiltily regarding Harry Reid and his exploding exercise machine......
noun, often capitalized \ˈshä-dən-ˌfrȯi-də\
We have included this cute clip to remind Sen. Reid of how to properly utilize an exercise machine, including how to cheat on one, based upon our personal observations of his congressional history
The media is reporting that a piece of obstructionist Senator Harry Reid's exercise equipment went haywire and broke, causing injury to the Senator's face and ribs, at his home in Nevada.
Based upon our extensive experience with exercise equipment, we can infer that Reid was probably using a treadmill, especially considering the extent of his somewhat painful injuries, including fractures to both his face and his ribs.
Treadmills, as opposed to voting machines, hit back and hard, apparently, either that, or the Senator got into some very serious trouble with at least several of his thuggish gambling constituents, in Las Vegas.
Here, Homer Simpson exposes the extraordinary dangers inherent of treadmills and other exercise equipment, which Harry Reid simply could not escape....
"A piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face," a statement released by his office read. "Senator Reid will return to Washington this weekend and be in the office Tuesday as the Senate prepares to reconvene.
When Congress reconvenes, next week, we can probably expect Uber-Statist Reid to propose several bills mandating better safety controls regarding tread mills and other types of exercise equipment, including a new tax and mandated warnings on the inherent peril of such equipment.
However, we were gratified to note that Reid does indeed have bones, rather than the suspected exoskeleton which is more commonly associated with insects.
It is also at least a possibility, however remote, that one of Reid's thuggish guards may have confused the Senator for Conservative journalist Jason Mattera, the results of which can be observed in the the following Youtube video, which might more fully explain Reid's somewhat bizarre injuries:
You've heard the Obama mantra "Never let a crisis go to waste?"
Well, how about "Never allow a blessing to go to waste?"
This from none other than establishment Republican Senatorial apparatchik, Bob Corker, of Tennessee, who thinks the Federal government should seize the day, and just a little bit more of your dollars in the form of higher taxes on a gallon of gas, while the price has temporarily dived into affordable territory.
We never, ever, heard them talk about decreasing the fuel tax when gas prices were so horribly high, however, now listen to the chorus from our wasteful representation, when prices finally fall.
The US, alone, is already taxed higher than half the Earth's population already, but, that's just not enough to at least some of our elected representatives.....
Via WVLT, Knoxville:
Two senators unveiled a bipartisan plan Wednesday to raise federal gasoline and diesel taxes for the first time in more than two decades, pitching the proposal as a solution to Congress’ struggle to pay for highway and transit programs.
The plan offered by Sens. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., would raise the 18.4-cents-a-gallon federal gas tax and 24.4-cents-a- gallon diesel tax by 12 cents each over the next two years, and then index the taxes to keep pace with inflation.
The plan also calls for offsetting the tax increases with other [tax] cuts. Senators said that could be done by permanently extending six federal tax breaks that expired this year, but they indicated they would be open to other suggestions for offsets.
From Twitchy: Yep, we can always count on Big Government to do what’s best — for itself, that is. Screw the taxpayers.
Gas prices in some areas are now below $2 a gallon and continue to drop for the time being. Some in Congress, including GOP Sen. Bob Corker, want to jump on the opportunity to tack on more taxes while the price is low, and Obama’s former “Car Czar” likes the idea:

Then when the price goes back up, as it inevitably will, there would be an additional burden on consumers.

Debris, Trash, or Atomized Monument?
The makeshift Michael Brown Memorial sits smack-dead in the center of the street, as an allowed public safety hazard which all vehicles must avoid hitting or else, apparently.
Unfortunately, last night it was hit by a car, as should have been and probably was anticipated, by the officials in charge.
Yet, no one has been able to determine the state of mind of the driver at the time of the collision; whether he or she was drunk, white and angry, black and angry, and or perhaps texting at the time of the collision, never mind the possibility of driver sleepiness.
So, as a result, it's up to the usual suspects to preclude that the event was borne of malice aforethought, which is the way it is being reported, at least for now.
From the Washington Post:
"People hurriedly cleaned and rebuilt a memorial to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on Friday morning after they said a car intentionally destroyed it."
Who's "they," by the way?
After the unfortunate collision was made public, enter Ferguson police spokesman Timothy Zoll.
Zoll stated that "no crime had been reported in connection to the memorial’s destruction." Zoll further suggested that the department would try to obtain video of the collision.
Further pressed, Zoll asserted “I don’t know that a crime has occurred, but a pile of trash in the middle of the street? The Washington Post is making a call over this?”
Now, enter from stage-left, the Washington Post, whose reporters took issue with Zoll's labeling of what had become a washed-out pile of petals and paper with some cardboard, in essence-- a pile of trash --insolently referred as a "pile of trash" by the police spokesman, who is also a police officer.
How dare he? The reporters must have thought.
As a result, the AP is now reporting that the officer has been suspended for his possible perpetration of a thought crime, that crime , by the way, being the referring of a makeshift memorial to a dead thug, that had been reduced to a pile of debris as a "pile of trash."
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The Ferguson Police Department has suspended a spokesman after he referred to the Michael Brown memorial as "a pile of trash."
A statement the city provided to The Associated Press on Sunday didn't identify the officer who made the remark to The Washington Post. The newspaper attributed the comment to Officer Tim Zoll.
The memorial at the site of Brown's death was damaged last week after a car apparently hit it.
Zoll doesn't have a listed number and couldn't be reached by the AP.
The city says the spokesman denied making the comment, but later admitted that he'd misled his bosses.
He has been placed on unpaid leave while "disciplinary proceedings" begin.
City officials said negative remarks about the memorial "do not reflect the feelings of the Ferguson Police Department."
You see, it's all about usage when it comes to the perpetration of a thought crime.
Had Officer Zoll used any one of the following words, he would have been left unscathed by his unfortunate thesaural treatment:
Good: detritus, rubble, wreck, wreckage, bits, doss, fragments, pieces, riffraff (guardedly) or ruins.
However, words meaning essentially the same thing, which should not be even dared used, are as follows:
Bad: junk, rubbish, trash, crap, dregs, garbage, offal, refuse, riffraf
If one is still not sure, one can cross-reference meanings from an alternative, and yet similarly worded meaning, searched as follows from Thesaurus.com:
You see, a questionable thought crime can only be proven after being voiced, when looked at in its most specific form of connotation, so there you have it.
"Whose" the Real Enemy?.......
'Our real enemy' reads the caption of the Philadelphia paramedic's posting. According to the black paramedic's own words, the photo was published out of anger towards police officers.
A search of most stories within the mainstream media yields little if anything on the identity or race of the paramedic in question who posted an outrageous photo on social media sites.
However, a trip to the UK media tells the entire story.
Had the ideological situation been reversed, no doubt we would have a name, an address, family photos and phone numbers of the offending party.
Under investigation: Officials are investigating Salters' conduct
His name is Marcell Salters, and despite all of the dangers which brave paramedics routinely encounter, depending on police officers to provide them with protection in crime ridden areas, Salters suspended logic by most celebratorily publishing a photo of a white cop with two blacks, guns to the cop's head.
Salters later apologized for the incident; however, the apology was tendered under duress. Salters should be immediately released from his post so that he can run with the thugs he quite obviously admires and prefers.
Philadelphia officials are rightfully in an uproar.
The rest of the story from the UK Daily Mail:
A Philadelphia Fire Department paramedic has sparked outrage for posting a photo to Instagram showing two black men pointing guns at a white cop with the caption: 'Our real enemy.'
Marcell Salters has now apologized for posting the image and the caption, which continued: 'Need 2 stop pointing guns at each other & at the ones that's legally killing innocents.'
Police Union President John McNesby slammed the post as 'despicable' and defamatory, Fox29 reported.
The image, which shows two black men with guns raised at a white police officer's head, is from a rap video by Uncle Murda and Maino called 'Hands Up', which they wrote after the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who were both died at the hands of officers over the summer.
The Peculiar Case of the Lone Star Tick.....
The story which appeared in millions of papers everywhere, in August, as written by an Associated Press medical writer, was so fantastic that it strained any rational credulity.
A specific type of tick, which is normally found in the American Southwest, is now appearing all over the US; however, it's what happens after the tick bite that sends all logic spinning off into the hinterlands of science fiction.
This tick, with its bite, can cause an allergic response so terrible that it sends an individual into anaphylaxis, which is an allergic reaction that can be life-threatening, but here's the catch:
The reaction occurs only if the bitten individual eats red meat and, even more unbelievably, it takes about six to eight hours for the reaction to take place.
Yes indeed, it's the red meat that causes the severe reaction, so, if one is a vegetarian there is little if any risk--well--as long as the individual stays strong in their vegetarian faith.
Not only that, the issue is appearing all over the US, but only from one particular tick known as the "Lone Star Tick," and the effects from the bite appear to be ongoing with regard to the extraordinarily odd red meat allergic reaction.
Newer Tick-Borne Viruses Emerge
Regarding the now newly ubiquitous "lone star tick" there is a bit more to the story, from a website called Preventdisease.com a research specialist and consumer advocate, had this to say:
Researcher and entomologist Jaime Lombard says the ticks have been in circulation for a few years however the latest crop released are becoming more potent. "Scientists have been experimenting on ticks since the 1960s because of their ability to spread disease. Since then, genetically engineered ticks have become more potent and scientists can create human disease almost at will," he stated.
But there's more....
Interestingly enough, is the fact that, shortly after the National Bio and Agro defense facility had begun partial operations in Kansas, and after its move from the now closing Plum Island facility located in Long Island Sound, NY, (which is a whole other horror story), we now have two new potentially fatal tick-borne diseases that have emerged in Kansas..
From the AP comes the first story on the most recently discovered disease :
"A new virus thought to be carried by ticks or other insects has been discovered following the death of a southeast Kansas resident during the summer, public health officials said Monday.
The new virus is called Bourbon virus, after Bourbon County, home of the patient who died. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said the patient's symptoms, including fever and fatigue, were similar to symptoms from other tick-borne diseases.
The Kansas health department said testing by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the patient had a virus not previously identified. Health department spokeswoman Aimee Rosenow said it's still not clear how much the Bourbon virus contributed to the patient's death.
"This was the first known instance and the only confirmed case," Rosenow said. "This is a new virus, and we are still learning."
The health department declined to identify the victim of the virus or provide details about the case, saying it was protecting the privacy of the patient and family members."
However, there is also yet another tick-born disease, which has emerged in Kansas as well, called "The Heartland Virus." This story from the Fort Scott Tribune:
The Heartland virus is also a relatively new tick-borne virus that is carried by the Lone Star tick. According to the CDC, there is also currently no vaccine or medication to treat or cure the Heartland virus.
Even more interesting might be the proximity of the Bourbon viruses' initial hot zone, which is a knight-like move of only about 200 miles away, from Manhattan, Kansas.
So, is there a possible connection?
The Heartland virus, by the way, originated 182 miles away from Manhattan Kansas, in an almost geometrically identical movement compared to the Bourbon Virus.
So, at least now you have the rest of the story. Ticks are routinely used in genetic research due to their ability to spread disease. According to Wikipedia, "Lab 257, a book by Michael C. Carroll, has alleged a connection between Plum Island Animal Disease Center and the outbreaks of at least two infectious diseases: West Nile virus in 1999, and the Dutch duck plague in 1967."
Manhattan, KS can be found near the exact geographic center of the United States, which is located in Lebanon, KS, 142 miles away.
Now, if you're really curious, you might consider checking out the area history of a beautiful little research town in Connecticut known as Lyme.....
Update: Questions as to the ongoing construction/operational aspect of the new bio-warfare site have emerged:
There were, already, several bio-research facilities in operation at this site--and it was initially slated to be fully operational by 2015--meaning parts of the facility may be or are currently operational--the other side to this question is the fact that at least two new tick-born diseases have emerged around the exact geo-center of this site which is located at KSU.
The inference of the article leans towards the fact that these new disease have emerged in almost the same exact place and seeks to answer the questions as to why.
What are the odds?
~The location for the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) is directly on the Manhattan, Kansas, campus of Kansas State University, immediately beside the Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI).
~BRI is a $54 million education.research facility boasting biosafety level 3 (BSL-3), BSL-3 Enhanced (BSL-3E), and BSL-3 Agriculture (BSL-3Ag) state-of-the-art bio-containment spaces.
~The site is located very near the KSU School of Veterinary Medicine and the KSU College of Agriculture including the Department of Animal Science and Industry. http://bri.k-state.edu/"
So, there you have our mish-mash of recent news articles each related only by its notable contagionary influence on America as a whole; say, shouldn't they also be synthesing a 'Coup'-shot this year?
Stay free, America.....
Refocus Reports 1/7/15: After America, Islamists Hit Paris, Odd Meteor, WW3- Islam vs Christians, Boehner
January 1st, 2015
By Barry Secrest
From our position, 2015 looks to be a rather bizarre year, not unlike 2014.
The Republican year-end budget giveaway, in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, seems to make this view pretty clear.
Obama, however, also gifted America with a very recent and rather grand give-away in stating his extreme opposition to the fact that "some within the Republican Party hold nativist views."
Nativist essentially means "Favoring Americans over Illegals and or immigrants."
In essence, Obama let slip his true designs in favoring immigrants over the Americans who have voted him into power, twice now, and who actually own the title, that being the US Constitution, to the nation that is America.
The United States is not owned by its government and the oligarchs running it, rather, it's owned by its people; however, many Americans (along with most of America's leadership) have forgotten this simple fact.
Further, Obama's highly warped and twisted view of reality, regarding America and the role of President, simply does not bear up, especially when scrutinized with regard to the President's designed position of keeping America secure via executive authority.
The "Nativist" statement by Obama is the ultimate Achilles heel for the remaining Democrats, who also hold this ideological position at large, and should be leveraged into the public perception unlike anything else Obama's radical regime has either stated or perpetrated.
The things we will be watching for in 2015 include the North American Union, an after-America agenda-we believe-that is at the heart of so many governmental oddities if not inconsistencies.
Also, Israel and what we view will be ballooning aggression between our closest Mideast ally and the Arab world. ISIS and its caliphate, along with Obama's continued weak treatment of their demonic agenda, bear considerable watching. Next to last, but certainly not least, the world economy, which many believe will falter as a huge Keynesian bubble of debt, becomes terminally strained.
Lastly, watch for the signs that we have consistently referred to in a large number of posts of the things to come. The world is becoming stranger and the things once held sacrosanct are now being increasingly held in contempt. Christianity and its persecution has become a thing now regularly reported upon in a nation which was founded upon and has flourished via Judeo-Christian principles.
In that vein, anti-Semitism also seems to be on the rise, most especially in Europe. The Cold War with the Soviet Union has been restarted due to Obama's tragically weak foreign policy machinations, such as they are.
Good has now become bad and vice-versa, a thing which was predicted long, long, ago and is now materializing before our very eyes.
The existence in which we live is far more supernatural than natural, yet humanity is taught to toil under the precepts of mundanity, a humanistic fallacy which lies at the root of our dystopian pandemic.
To all our readers, we hope God blesses you bountifully, and please do remember, as things continue to grow weirder and the veil thins even more, who ultimately wins in the end.
God Bless America.
