Barack Obama Uses the Easter Address to Remind Us That Islam has a Similar Christian Shared Commitment to “Love Our Neighbors As We Love Ourselves” … HUH?

ISLAM IS WHAT?

President Barack Obama used his weekly address to spew forward one of the most bizarre and convoluted Easter messages, maybe of all time. Who knew it was a common thread of Muslims was to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves?” Maybe Obama can some how explain how THIS is loving thy neighbor?

The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.  Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission.

 From the White House website: Saturday, April 19, 2014.

Hi, everybody.  For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning.

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their retellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression.

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago.  And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today.  They remind us of our responsibilities to God and, as God’s children, our responsibilities to one another.

For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and Easter are times for reflection and renewal.  We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him.  We recall all that Jesus endured for us – the scorn of the crowds, the agony of the cross – all so that we might be forgiven our sins and granted everlasting life.  And we recommit ourselves to following His example, to love and serve one another, particularly “the least of these” among us, just as He loves every one of us.

The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.  Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission.

For me, Easter is a story of hope – a belief in a better day to come, just around the bend.

So to all Christians who are celebrating, from my family to yours, Happy Easter.  And to every American, have a joyful weekend.

Thanks, God bless you, and may God bless this country we love.

Video Shows Large al Qaeda Meeting in Yemen and Some How No Obama Drones Could Be Found … Hmm, I Thought al Qaeda was On the Run?

Don’t worry America … Barack Obama told us that al Qaeda is on the run.

Exactly how is it that al Qaeda can have a meeting of so many individuals, including al Qaeda’s crown prince Nasir al-Wuhayshi, out in the open and there was no knowledge of this by the CIA or the Pentagon? Where was the drone strike that would have decimated al Qaeda? How is it that the NSA can spy on all law abiding American’s emails, phone calls, tweets, etc. but no one knew about this very public open meeting? UNREAL!!! Instead, Obama goes after a cowboy in an over-reach of force.

As reported at The Politico, Rep. Mike Rogers said Tuesday that Al Qaeda is stronger than ever, and that they are doing all the things necessary to prepare a strike.

“The less pressure you put on them, the more they take that as a victory,” Rogers said. “The more that they believe they can get away with plotting, planning, organizing, as you saw there, finance training, all of the things that they would need to do to strike a Western target, they’re going through that process, including, by the way, bringing very sophisticated people to devise new devices that would try to get around security protocols at airports and other places.”

In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying “We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!”

CNN:

A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

Another Obama lie that got him reelected … al Qaeda is on the path to defeat

San Francisco 49ers Linebacker Aldon Smith Arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday … Stated “He Was in Possession of a Bomb”

49ers LB Aldon Smith in trouble again …

San Francisco 49er linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport after making the comment that he had a bomb during a security screening. Smith was going through Terminal 1 as LAX screeneing when he was randomly selected for secondary screening. Smith then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and then made the cardinal sins of all sins at an airport and said, he was in possession of a bomb. Smith was then detained and taken into custody by airport police. Aldon Smith was transported to the Los Angeles Police Department where he was booked for felony false report of a bomb threat. The arrest was the latest in a string of arrests including the most recent on September  20 on a charge of driving under the influence. He was arrested on the same charge in January 2012.

It has been quite the busy week for the San Francisco 49ers and none of it has to do with football. First the allegations regarding QB Colin Kaepernick and now this.

Niners linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport after claiming he had a bomb during a security screening, airport police said.

Smith, 24, made the threat after he was randomly selected for a second screening at about 2 p.m. as he went through the Transportation Security Agency checkpoint for Terminal 1.

“The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding toward the gate area,” Sgt. Karla Ortiz said in a statement.

UPDATE I: Statement from 49ers.

“We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith,” said Trent Baalke, 49ers general manager. “As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment.”

Oh the Irony … 29 Islamists Accidently Blow Themselves Up When They Prematurely Detonate A Car Bomb

Gotta Love It When This Happens …

Islamists were introduced to poetic justice and irony when 29 so-called rebels were killed when the car bombs they were loading into a vehicle prematurely exploded in the Syrian city of Homs. A guess these folks need to go back and re-read the chapter in the terrorists hand guide to bombs that deals with loading cars with explosives. But we will make it as Weasel Zippers did, the feel good story of the day.

Question, do they still get the virgins?

Car bomb Syria

 At least 29 rebel combatants died Sunday when a car bomb exploded in the central part of the city of Homs,

At least 29 rebels died in a blast Sunday in the central Syrian city of Homs as they primed a car bomb for an attack, a monitoring group said.

In the capital, meanwhile, two people were killed when mortar fire struck the Damascus Opera House, state media reported.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said at least 29 people were killed, most or all of them believed to be rebels, in the besieged Old City of Homs when a car bomb exploded.

“The death toll is likely to rise because there are dozens of people missing and body parts in the area of the blast,” the Britain-based group said.

State news agency SANA also reported the blast, saying a car had exploded while being loaded with explosives.

Muslim parent in Dearborn, MI Upset Over School Flyer Promoting Easter Egg Hunt, But Some how Have No Issue With Muslims Beheadings, Honor Killings, Or Killing Women & Babies

Honestly, I really don’t give a crap anymore what happens to offend Muslims or makes them feel uncomfortable … I am sick and tired of all the claims of people being offended about everything … GET OVER IT!!!

Some Muslim parents are upset that the public schools in Dearborn, Michigan handed out flyers to their children advertising an Easter egg hunt at the Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church. Seriously, this is what offends a Muslim parent? You know what offends me, a religion that is hell-bent of killing infidels of all other religions. I am offended when so-called moderate Muslims would sit back and say nothing when other Muslims are beheading individuals, shooting Christian babies, constant killing of Christians, and Muslims killing Christan women.  Hell, you think they might be offended by a good old-fashioned Muslim honor killing. NOPE! Isn’t it a shame that we don’t hear these same rants of feeling offended by actions of people of their own religion? But then again, Islam is a religion of Peace, as we are told. Sorry, Islam is a religion of INTOLERANCE!

Folks, at some point we have to start restoring America, or lose it forever.

Bunny_WTF

VIDEO

Some Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.

A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.

“It really bothered my two kids,” said parent Majed Moughni, who is Muslim and has two children, ages 7 and 9, in Dearborn elementary schools. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’ ”

I have to echo the PJ Tatler and agree with their call of BS on the Muslim kids so-called claim of feeling “uncomfortable”.

I am calling BS on that parent. If his kid said that, my name is Mohammed. Besides, the flyer isn’t telling anyone to “go to church.” It’s inviting kids over to have some fun. And how can these secular symbols of Easter be defined as “religious”? Maybe the Muslims think that Christians worship bunny rabbits.

I must have missed the part in the Bible where there was a secular Easter Egg hunt before Jesus Christ was crucified and his resurrection.

UPDATE I: A Message to offended Muslims.

 

Score One, Make that Six For the Good Guys … British Sniper in Afghanistan Kills Six Taliban Islamists with One Bullet!

NICE!!!

Afghan Taliban Islamist Jeopardy: I will take ‘killing Taliban radical Islamist Muslims’ for $500 Alex. The answer, 6. Alex, that would be how many Taliban Islamists were killed with one British sniper’s bullet Alex. CORRECT!!!  As reported at the Telegraph, a British sniper hit trigger switch of suicide bomber whose device then exploded killing the bomber and 5 others around him.

Sniper

A British sniper in Afghanistan killed six insurgents with a single bullet after hitting the trigger switch of a suicide bomber whose device then exploded, The Telegraph has learnt.

The 20-year-old marksman, a Lance Corporal in the Coldstream Guards, hit his target from 930 yards (850 metres) away, killing the suicide bomber and five others around him caught in the blast.

The incident in Kakaran in southern Afghanistan happened in December but has only now been disclosed as Britain moves towards the withdrawal of all combat soldiers by the end of the year.

Lt Col Richard Slack, commanding officer of 9/12 Royal Lancers, said the unnamed sharpshooter prevented a major attack by the Taliban, as a second suicide vest packed with 20kg (44lbs) of explosives was found nearby.

The same sniper, with his first shot on the tour of duty, killed a Taliban machine-gunner from 1,465 yards (1,340m).

Hillary Clinton’s Top Selling Point for 2016 Presidential Election is not Any Accomplishments, Its Being First Female President

What a resounding reason to qualify or vote for Hillary Clinton to be president in 2016 … Hmm, How did that same “being first” work out with Obama?

According to a recent Gallup poll, the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton is that she would be the first female president. Huh? So after all the years of politics behind her, 18% said the best reason to vote for her is just because she would be the first woman president. Just curious America, how did that little social experiment work electing Barack Obama the first black president? Hmm? Just 9% said it would be because of Hillary’s experience and foreign policy experience [can you say Benghazi, Iran, Russia reset and Middle East burning], while just 3% said she was the most qualified and capable, and 3% said healthcare reform [how did Hillary Healthcare work out?] and 2% said because of the economy.

So all America has to look forward to is a Democrat 2016 campaign of “War on Women” as we have been through six years of anyone who dares say anything negative about Obama’s policies is a racist. Isn’t enough, enough?

However, “nothing” scored 27% as the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton and another 22% had no opinion or no clue. I guess this can explain why so many DNC individuals can’t name one thing that she has done. How can some one who was first lady of Arkansas from 1983 – 1992, was the first day of the United States from 1993 – 2001 [remember a Hillary said in 1992, "I'm not sitting here, some little woman standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette." ... "Baking cookies and making tea (VIDEO)".], US Senator fro New York from 2001 – 2009, and Secretary of State from 2009 – 2013 and the greatest reason why she should be elected president is because she would be the first woman. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!

Gallup_Hillary_2016

Seriously America, one of the main reasons why Barack Obama was elected president, other than GWB fatigue, a poor RINO Republican candidate and a poor economy was that he would be the first black president. That is of course if you discount Bill ‘Bubba’ Clinton. Wake the hell up!!! I do not care what party some one is from, your reason for voting for them can’t be because they are the first of anything. No one we can’t get qualified people in the White House.

Rutgers Faculty Approves Resolution to Rescind its Invitation to Condoleeza Rice to Speak at Commencement

THE LIBERAL INDOCTRINATION OF AMERICA’S COLLEGES …

Liberal, duplicitous Rutgers faculty looks to rescind the university’s original invitation to former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to speak at their Commencement. Condi is just to Republican to speak at Rutgers, according to the libs in the faculty.  Get a load of the reason why the liberal elite at Rutgers do not want Condi to speak at the commencement. One professor said, “She was intimately involved in a campaign that was a manipulation. Whether she was aware of it or not. Our students are being manipulated to deliver a political point.” Another said, “an honorary Doctor of Laws degree should not honor someone who participated in a political effort to circumvent the law.” Hmm, I guess that also means that Hillary Clinton (Benghazi) and Barack Obama (Obamacare and his entire presidency) would be deemed the same as not fitting the criteria to speak at a Rutgers commencement? Add the entire Obama administration since the Rutger’s profs added, “whether some one was aware of it or not.” Who are these two face, elitist, liberal moon-bats kidding. Sadly, they are teaching indoctrinating our children.

Condi_Rice

Hey Rutgers lib profs … talk to the hand

The Rutgers University New Brunswick Faculty Council approved a resolution yesterday urging the university’s Board of Governors to rescind its invitation to Condoleeza Rice to speak at commencement.

The Board of Governors voted earlier this month to award an honorary Doctor of Laws degree to Rice, who served as Secretary of State under President George W. Bush. She will be paid $35,000 for her commencement address.

But the faculty council cited her war record and her misleading of the public about the Iraq war as reasons for their opposition.

“Condoleezza Rice … played a prominent role in (the Bush) administration’s effort to mislead the American people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction,” according to the resolution. And she “at the very least condoned the Bush administration’s policy of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ such as waterboarding,” it said.

“A Commencement speaker… should embody moral authority and exemplary citizenship,” it continued, and “an honorary Doctor of Laws degree should not honor someone who participated in a political effort to circumvent the law.”

They Have No Shame … Susan Rice Says She Has No Regrets Over Initial Benghazi Interviews, ‘Patently False’ That I Misled American People (VIDEO)

Doubling Down … Softball interview with NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ … National Security Adviser Susan Rice says she has no regrets on Benghazi interview following the death of four Americans.

Oh what tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive. The Obama administration is simply incapable of telling the truth. National Security Adviser Susan Rice, when asked this Sunday on ‘Meet the Press,’ said that she had no regrets with what she said on five Sunday network talk shows in misleading the America public is saying the Benghazi attack was based on a video tape rather than a terror attack. Rice claims that it is “settled science” that the Obama administration had done nothing wrong. Rice stated some of the information turned out not to be correct, “but the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false.  And I think that that’s been amply demonstrated.” HA, this from the Obama administration that said, if you liked your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan, PERIOD! I am sensing a pattern.

No regrets, really? The reason why she is not Secretary of State Rice and is only the National Security Adviser is because of those lies. Of course an all too in the tank bias media was no where to be found as David Gregory asked no follow up questions to contradict her “Alinky” comments.

Yeah, not a smidgen of corruption whatsoever.

The Politico:

National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Sunday she has no regrets about her now-infamous round of TV interviews in 2012 about the the attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Rice, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said that nobody in the Obama administration intended to mislead the American people when she appeared on Fox, ABC, CNN, NBC and CBS in 2012 shortly after the attacks.

Asked by host David Gregory if she had any regrets about the interviews, Rice replied: “No.”

“Because what I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice said. “The information I provided, which I explained to you, was what we had at the moment. It could change. I commented that this was based on what we knew on that morning, was provided to me and my colleagues and, indeed, to Congress, by the intelligence community.  And that’s been well validated in many different ways since.”

“That information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100 percent correct,” she acknowledged. “But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false.  And I think that that’s been amply demonstrated.”

Terrorism: US Homeland Security Warning Airlines to Beware of Possible Shoe Bombs

US Homeland Security is warning airlines to beware of possible terror shoe bombs. Hmm, haven’t the Islamists already tried this?

According to accounts, there is no specific threat or known plot, but obviously the NSA must have overheard someones cell phone conversation or read their emails. As reported at NBC News, several officials familiar with the advisory that “very recent intelligence” considered credible warns of possible attempts to attack passenger jets using explosives concealed in shoes. One would have thought after the failed attempt by Richard Reid, that the cat would have been out of the bag as to this method of delivering a bomb. Sadly, these terrorists are persistent on killing innocent people in the name of Allah.

Hmm, I guess Al-Qaeda is not on the run, they might even be in the friendly skies.

CNN:

The U.S. government has warned airlines to pay particular attention to the possibility of terrorists attempting to hide explosives in shoes, a result of new intelligence, according to two people familiar with the situation.

The officials stressed there is no specific threat or known plot.
Intelligence collected by the United States and other countries has indicated terror groups have been working on new shoe-bomb designs, the sources said Wednesday.

That knowledge prompted the Department of Homeland Security to warn airlines to be on the lookout for explosives hidden in shoes on flights from overseas to the United States, they said.

A separate intelligence official underscored the warning was issued out of a sense of heightened caution.

“This threat is not specific or credible enough to require a specific response. DHS often issues these alerts out of an abundance of caution, but this does not necessarily rise to the level of facilitating a response,” the intelligence official said.
