Obama NSA didn’t agree to leave, he was forced out

“We have a lot of transition at this point here,” said one senior Obama aide.
“They decided the time was right to bring forward his departure and for Jones to step aside. We always knew it was going to be roughly in this window, at the end of this year. But we’re making a lot of changes now with Rahm leaving, and there was a sense of just, ‘Let’s get this done now.’”
But there was more to the timing than the ripple effects of Rahm’s departure.Next month President Obama begins to travel again overseas, and in December he begins the critical process of reviewing his new Afghan strategy.
Jones was one of the architects of the last extensive review a year ago, leading to the deployment of an extra 30,000 troops.
It made little sense that he would leave directly after an Afghan review that could determine the legacy of this presidency.
“Frankly, a lot of what the December review is about is the next phase now,” said the senior Obama aide. “So it would be good to have a new structure in place as we make those decisions.”

As the lawlessness of the Obama regime becomes evident to all who can think overseas, here at home it has metastasized throughout the body of our nation. Obama and his US Marxist Party formerly known as the US Democrat Party are working with increased speed and vigor to destroy all that once was the United States of America, to the point of Obama’s DOJ now openly flaunting both the upholding of equal-access voting laws and engaging in blatant election fraud.

A tape recording of the shooting deaths of four Kent State University students by Ohio National Guardsmen in 1970 reveals the sound of pistol shots 70 seconds earlier, a newspaper reported Friday, citing the work of a forensic audio expert.If the pistol fire is authenticated, it could prove a theory that the Guardsmen thought they were being shot at during a campus Vietnam War protest and also could back up witnesses who said an FBI informant monitoring the protest fired warning shots because he felt threatened.
This is one of those obscure Middle East events of the utmost significance that is ignored by the Western mass media, especially because they happen in Arabic, not English; by Western governments, because they don’t fit their policies; and by experts, because they don’t mesh with their preconceptions.This explicit formulation of a revolutionary program makes it a game-changer.
It should be read by every Western decisionmaker and have a direct effect on policy because this development may affect people’s lives in every Western country.OK, cnough of a build-up? Well, it isn’t exaggerated. So don’t think the next sentence is an anticlimax. Here we go: The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has endorsed Arabic English translation by MEMRI anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book. Since the Brotherhood is the main opposition force in Egypt and Jordan as well as the most powerful group, both politically and religiously, in the Muslim communities of Europe and North America this is pretty serious stuff.
By the way, no one can argue that he merely represents old, tired policies of the distant past because the supreme guide who said these things was elected just a few months ago. His position reflects current thinking.
The exodus of senior aides from the White House continued as Gen James Jones, Barack Obama’s head of National Security, resigned.His departure, which comes a week after Rahm Emanuel, the chief of staff, resigned, removes one of the few senior officials not belonging to the US president’s coterie of long-time advisers.Brought in originally for his vast experience and independent voice, it had been clear for some time that the former Nato supreme commander had failed to gel with the president’s inner circle.
Gen Jones is being replaced by one of those close aides, his former deputy Thomas Donilon.Announcing the change in the White House Rose Garden, Mr Obama paid tribute to Gen Jones’s “long service to the nation”, but did little more than praise him as a “steady voice in the Situation Room” as National Security Adviser. He however described Mr Donilon as a “probing intellect”.A veteran of six Democratic presidential campaigns and a former senior State Department official, Mr Donilon is steeped in the workings of government and was an adviser to Mr Obama’s presidential campaign.
His detractors regard him as too political for a job whose main tasks are assessing and balancing information from different government departments, and then enforcing the president’s policy.According to a new book by Bob Woodward, Robert Gates, the Defence Secretary, remarked that Mr Donilon would be a “disaster” if ever promoted because he did not appreciate or understand the military sufficiently. Mr Gates said yesterday he had “a very good working relationship with Mr Donilon”.
Rhodes sources a DHS document, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism Working Group,” that lists Richard Cohen as a member of the DHS created group. Cohen is president and CEO of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In addition to Cohen, a number of law enforcement officials are members of the DHS group, including Austin Chief of Police Art Acevedo.SPLC, DHS, Community Officials Team Up to Attack Patriot Groups onepixel obamalights.jpg Download the document as a PDF. “What does the working group do? Make recommendations on training and how to use all of the local resources — police, social services, media, NGO’s, you name it – to fight ‘extremism.’
So, now no need to file a FOIA request to discover that SPLC is writing the reports naming constitutionalists as possible terrorists. Now it is in your face and the mask is off,” writes Rhodes.
The document encourages local “partners” and the feds to work together to share “threat-related information… and develop case studies that can be used by local authorities as a learning tool for law enforcement personnel” in order to prevent “ideologically-motivated violent crime radicalization, violent extremism, etc.,” in short the patriot movement.
In early April of 2009, a document produced by the Department of Homeland Security, “Rightwing Extremism:
Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” characterized patriot political groups that reject “federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or [reject] government authority entirely” as domestic terrorists.The DHS report followed similar reports issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center and the Virginia Fusion Center.
The MIAC report specifically describes supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as “militia” influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties.
According to the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, the MIAC documents were heavily influenced by “faulty and politicized research issued by the Southern Poverty Law Center SPLC and Anti Defamation League ADL.”
In 2008, law enforcement officers from across Missouri gathered in the town of Arnold to hear from ADL experts on right-wing extremism.

Video interview with the father HERE.
From the founder of Oath Keepers:—–
Here is my statement for now:We are doing all we can to confirm and document this. But if is IS accurate, and a newborn child was ripped from her mother’s arms because the parents were “associated” with Oath Keepers by simply being members of our online ning discussion forum, then this is a grave crossing of a very serious line, and is utterly intolerable. It cannot be done. It cannot be allowed to stand. if it is true, then I will do all in my power to stop it. We will pull out all the stops, every lawful means of seeing that this child is returned to her parents and that all persons responsible are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and “speak truth to power,” no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations – because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution.
It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written. If true, then this is as bad, and in fact worse, than any of the violations of liberty that our Declaration of Independence lists as the reasons for our forefathers taking up arms in our Revolution and for separating from England.
We no longer have freedom at all if this is allowed to be done. And we will not let it stand.

AN OPEN LETTER TO SARAH PALIN
October 8, 2010
The following letter was written to Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, on October 4, 2010:Sarah Palin is writing her second book which is expected to be released next monthDear Sarah,On August 28 you stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and urged thousands of conservative activists and patriots to honor the men and women in our military. You appealed to all Americans to restore traditional values to our country and to celebrate all who have fought to preserve our freedoms and protect our country’s founding principles.You told the crowd that our military was “a force for good in this country” and you even took time to personally honor several military veterans onstage, imploring the crowd to look at them for inspiration.
Sarah, patriotic Americans do look to the military for inspiration and we do honor their service. No one deserves our support, our respect, our thanks, and our prayers more than those who serve with honor in our armed forces. We thank you for shining the spotlight on them and we know that you will continue to do so.Unfortunately, there was a glaring “oversight” at the Restoring Honor rally that August day in our nation’s capital.
It was not so much an oversight, however, as it was an intentional omission.
EYEWITNESS: JUDGE GAVE “PREDETERMINED ANSWER”
by Sharon Rondeau
Tennessee Congressional candidate Mr. H. James Headings was an eyewitness in the courtroom in Madisonville, TN, the seat of Monroe County, TN, for a hearing on Tuesday morning regarding the arrest of Walter Fitzpatrick on April 1, 2010.After asking the Monroe County grand jury to act on a criminal complaint of treason against Barack Hussein Obama, Fitzpatrick attempted to execute a citizen’s arrest of Gary Pettway, the Monroe County grand jury foreman, for his alleged illegal occupation of that position for the past 20 years.
On April 1, Fitzpatrick was charged with “intimidation” and “riot,” among other things.Darren Huff was arrested on April 20 and was “charged in U.S. District Court in Knoxville with traveling across interstate lines armed and ready to incite violence if necessary to take over the city of Madisonville and the Monroe County Courthouse located there.”
Law enforcement claimed that Huff’s display of “suspicious indicators” on his vehicle caught their attention.
Contrary to the way the mainstream media is reporting the situation, a young man in the crowd of an Obama speech who yelled, “You are a liar” during the speech was not merely “shouted down.”
In fact, the young man with the courage to have his own “you lie” moment was roughed up none too easy. Judge for yourself.
This morning, political commentators are paying a great deal of attention to one of the Los Angeles Times’ stories about Barack Obama‘s plans for a Republican takeover of Congress. Unfortunately, they are focusing on the wrong one. Most commentators spent the morning quoting the president’s remarks on a black radio program that a GOP-dominated Congress will result in “hand-to-hand combat.”
The reality is most of the action will take place behind their backs and over their heads. All indications are, if Obama cannot get his legislative agenda enacted by Congress, he will impose it by decree.The evidence comes buried elsewhere in today’s L.A. Times in a piece by Peter Nicholas and Christi Parsons under the hum-drum headline, “Obama Reshapes Administration for a Fresh Strategy.” The story makes clear the “fresh strategy” borders on government by executive fiat. It begins, “As President Obama remakes his senior staff, he is also shaping a new approach for the second half of his term: to advance his agenda through executive actions he can take on his own, rather than pushing plans through an increasingly hostile Congress.”
Jones’s resignation will take effect in two weeks.
Obama will make an announcement in the Rose Garden at 1 p.m. Friday
On The Term…”Foxhole”
by Dick Gaines)
(Ressurrected from GyG old bellyup site)
Not long ago, the question came up regarding the term ‘Foxholes,’ and its origin.After much ado, no origin was found for the word/term, although there were many differing opinions, as always. (the origin of “fighting hole’ also was mentioned)
(The Great War/WWI)
The following is from the book, “The Marines-A History,” byBGen Edwin Howard Simmons, 1974, Naval Institute Press, 3dEdition, page 100….
“The brigade consolidated on the seventh, digging a line of shallow rifle pits. Someone called them ‘foxholes’ and the name stuck…The 7th US infantry, half-trained, came up on the night of 16 June, and filed into the random line of foxholes…”
The above in regard to Belleau Wood, 1918. I have searched for the origin of ‘foxhole,’ having consulted numerous books, military history e-mail discussion groups, etc.–all to no avail–the above is the only mention on this topic that I have seen.)

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says half of people in Europe and America are suspicious of the September 11 events in the United States.“Many in the West blame the US government in the occurrence of the September 11 incident,”
IRNA reported Mehmanparast as saying at a press conference in the Iranian city of Isfahan on Thursday.He also made a reference to the recent visit of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to New York for a United Nations General Assembly session on the UN’s Millennium Development Goals MDGs and said President Ahmadinejad’s “trip to the UN was a good opportunity to set forth Iran’s public diplomacy, which conveyed Iran’s message to the world.
”The spokesperson further pointed to the “dubious” nature of the 9/11 event and said, “The US government needs to allow for the clarification of ambiguities regarding the incident and to refrain from jumping into hasty conclusions.”Mehmanparast also stressed the need for a probe into the event and said the US system, which claims to advocate freedom, should agree to such investigations as the event has entailed ‘grave’ consequences.
He explained that the United States embarked on a hunt for terrorists around the world under the pretext of the 9/11 but has failed to illuminate the true causes of the incident.The Iranian official also condemned the killing of civilians in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001.
Dick Morris states: “Particularly this year, it is difficult to distinguish between dutiful voters who say they are likely to vote and those who are actually going to make it to the polls.”
Turn out is the big thing and there…..
U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd of supporters that the country needs to address a “militant terrorist situation” that has allowed Islamic religious law to take hold in some American cities.
Her comments came at a rally of tea party supporters in the Nevada resort town of Mesquite last week after the candidate was asked about Muslims angling to take over the country, and marked the latest of several controversial remarks by the Nevada Republican.
In a recording of the rally provided to The Associated Press by the Mesquite Local News, a man is heard asking Angle : “I keep hearing about Muslims wanting to take over the United States … on a TV program just last night, I saw that they are taking over a city in Michigan and the residents of the city, they want them out. They want them out. So, I want to hear your thoughts about that.”Angle responds that “we’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe it isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it.”
“My thoughts are these, first of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas are on American soil, and under constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States,” she said. “It seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with allowing a foreign system of law to even take hold in
The candidate made the comment in response to a question from a constituent at a public campaign stop, and it is being publicized by Heath Haussamen at the NMPolitics website.
Haussamen used the opportunity to warn that Obama is eligible, is president and a candidate that suggests there still could be unanswered questions would “empower those on the extreme, fringe right who may be willing to resort to violence.”The Haussamen commentary said the comments came at a Sept. 30 meeting in Los Lunas.A video that was posted on the Huffington Post website reveals a woman asking Pearce for his position on whether Obama is eligible, since an ineligible president would create all sorts of questions about the legitimacy of his actions in office.
A newborn baby was ripped from its mother’s arms by officials from the New Hampshire Division of Family Child Services accompanied by police last night after authorities cited the parents’ association with the Oath Keepers organization as one of the primary reasons for the snatch, heralding a shocking new level of persecution where Americans’ political beliefs are now being used by the state to kidnap children.
We are doing all we can to confirm and document this. But if is IS accurate, and a newborn child was ripped from her mother’s arms because the parents were “associated” with Oath Keepers by simply being members of our online ning discussion forum, then this is a grave crossing of a very serious line, and is utterly intolerable. It cannot be done. It cannot be allowed to stand.
Well, that’s one. Anybody else?
Here is a valid issue that needs to be addressed and it takes a tea party favorite to do it.Sharron Angle, who is in a tight senate race against Harry Reid spoke at a tea party rally last week and addressed concerns that thus far, Washington has not only refused to do, but have actually contributed to and made worse. One of the ralliers asked her about Muslims taking over the United States. He mentioned Dearborn Michigan, where an exploding Muslim population is phasing out the Constitution and implementing sharia law.
Angle responds that “we’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe it isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it.”
Our growing domestic insurgency: revolt of the generals
6 October 2010by
A sign of our ovine nature is the torpor with which we watch alarming events, such as the inevitable consequences of a long war. Our forefathers warned us, but we didn’t listen. Now come the consequences.Slowly over the past five years evidence has accumulated that our military leaders have grown so powerful that they can — and increasing do — challenge the nation’s civilian leaders for control of foreign policy rather than jointly set it, as they have since WWII. Some experts warn about this.
Some experts whine. All to no avail. Long wars and big military forces shift political power from civilians to the military. It’s slow but inexorable, the price paid for the choices we made. Hoping to avoid paying that price is just another form of dreaming. The West experienced such shifts during WWI and WWII. Fortunately these wars were brief — and started from relatively low levels of military strength other than Germany.
So our State institutions were singed but not burned. But it’s been 9 years since 9-11, and we started from a very high level of military political power. COIN theory will not help us. The Tea Party will support the generals.
The price paid by the Republic will probably be high. Perhaps very high.
“Sooner or later, everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences.” — Robert Louis Stevenson, no source perhaps apocryphal

Stewart has just now as of 7:45PM PST, spoken to the father and he is faxing documents to Stewart. We are establishing a legal defense fund. Once it is confirmed through documentation that the father’s association with Oath Keepers was listed as a reason, even if among several reasons listed, for taking the child, we will actively pursue aggressive legal remedy and redress.
We will assist in locating competent local legal counsel in New Hampshire and additional expert legal counsel from around the country in First Amendment and child custody law. Stewart, who has worked on several First Amendment cases in State and Federal court will also volunteer his services to assist in the case Pro Bono.
