Border Patrol Union Thrashes Clinton and Obama’s Immigration Policies: Endangers Americans

Posted on: July 30, 2016

Secretary Clinton’s call for amnesty in her first 100 days and expanding these dangerous policies demonstrates her deeply alarming willingness to sell out the security of American families to advance her political or financial interests.

History will not look kindly on President Obama’s border security policies and his conscientious efforts to mislead the American people. Historians may refer to this period as the “Era of No Consequences,” which resulted in the increase of dangerous drugs like meth and heroin, as well as criminal aliens flooding our communities. Obama’s efforts to deceive the American public about border security, in order to pursue amnesty programs that were eventually rejected by Congress and the American people will go down as this Administration’s biggest — and deadliest — lie.

In reality, President Obama’s policies created the illegal immigrant crisis that dogged his presidency. For seven years, the President’s marketers sold him as the “Deporter in Chief.” There was no truth behind that marketing campaign. The truth is that those living in the U.S. illegally were less likely to be deported than under any previous administration. Interior deportations under Obama were down 40 percent and at a nine-year low. In addition, eight out of ten illegal immigrants caught at the border were allowed to stay. In many cases, they were given taxpayer-funded bus tickets to relocate to cities in the interior of the nation. Finally, the administration intentionally misled the public on how many criminal aliens ICE released into the country. It has been reported that the agency released more than 80,000 illegal aliens with criminal records. This number was significantly larger than what Director Saldana told Congress during her testimony. The Boston Globe reported that 30 percent of those released in New England re-offended and were charged with rape, child molestation, aggravated assault, armed robbery and attempted murder. This is Obama’s true legacy on border security.

President Obama’s immigration policies, the product of special interest collusion, have decimated border security. These failures have flooded our communities with illegal immigrants, criminals, and dangerous drugs, such as meth and heroin. The refusal to enforce our immigration laws has given drug cartels the opportunity to expand their territory across America and access lucrative revenue streams, as illegal immigrants have paid billions of dollars to these organizations to smuggle family members into the U.S.

A reasonable person would think that, after reviewing this abysmal record, Obama’s potential successor would distance themselves from this disaster. However, Secretary Hillary Clinton’s only criticism was that Obama did not go far enough. Clinton and Obama both agree that they must appease the radical extremists in their party’s furthest fringe. Unfortunately, the citizens who were victimized by criminal aliens paid the cost of that appeasement, as well as cities that were flooded with meth and heroin, and the crimes associated with the illegal drug trade.

President Obama and Secretary Clinton fail to recognize we live in a world where religious and political fanatics are actively plotting to harm U.S. citizens at home and abroad. Instead of investing in measures to secure our nation’s borders, they have openly and actively pursued what Secretary of State John Kerry called a “borderless world.” Americans need to ask themselves: Do we want to risk the safety and security of our family, businesses and communities on the dangerous and extreme policies supported by the ACLU, American Friends Service Committee, and other ideological extremists?

To our deep dismay and concern, the Clinton Immigration Plan embraces and expands the Obama policies that created the “Era of No Consequences.” These policies fueled the illegal immigration crisis and drug epidemic that victimized entire cities and destroyed families. Those that were hardest hit by these policies included minorities, single mothers, existing lawful resident aliens, and others who had to compete for services and charities that were overwhelmed by the massive influx of illegal aliens.

Secretary Clinton’s call for amnesty in her first 100 days and expanding these dangerous policies demonstrates her deeply alarming willingness to sell out the security of American families to advance her political or financial interests. Her immigration plan is not only dangerous for all American families, but previews an Administration that will once again defy the will of the voters and Congress to implement a divisive, reckless, and partisan agenda.

Secretary Clinton calls immigration a family problem. However, the families she ignored are all American. Her plan does nothing to protect those who are victimized every day by our blind pursuit of open borders, and in fact subjects them to a greater threat. No one, in either party, should run for office unless they are willing to put the interests of American families above anything or anyone else.

Every American family should be alarmed that her plan leaves their children vulnerable to drug cartels that control the Mexican border. Last year, 150,000 people were killed by these ruthless criminal organizations. Anyone who opposed them quickly discovered that these cartel leaders were morally bankrupt. Hundreds of journalists, activists, politicians and law enforcement officers simply disappeared or fled to the U.S., as the cartels used forms of terror such as torture, dismemberment and beheadings to control people. Clinton’s failure to recognize this pending threat leaves all of us vulnerable to the growing power and influence of these criminal organizations.

We are already seeing a massive influx of activity on our southern border. Secretary Clinton’s very candidacy, and the amnesty she promises, is luring families into the U.S. and wrecking innocent lives.

We would face an unprecedented crisis if she was elected and allowed to implement her plan. Cartels and Islamic extremists would quickly manipulate this chaos and further their plans to harm innocent American citizens. Clinton has pledged to close detention centers, release immigrant family members and offer American citizenship, Obamacare, education, and amnesty to all. She mysteriously chooses to ignore the lessons from recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Paris, Belgium, Nice, Orlando and London, as she pushes to drastically expand refugee admissions to citizens from countries not friendly to the U.S.

Clinton’s plan is another troubling example of her eagerness to ignore the inconvenient truth that we live in dangerous times. She continues to put the desires of social elites above the deafening choir of hard-working everyday citizens who are demanding real border security. We can no longer afford to weaken border security and hope for the best. Clinton’s Immigration Plan is dangerous, and may win her fringe voter support at the risk of every family’s security.

We believe that once the American public reads Clinton’s immigration plan, they will agree it is weak, dangerous, panders to extremists, and will result in their families and communities becoming vastly less safe and more at-risk. Simply put, this plan is a catastrophe and will threaten countless Americans. As the Obama “Era of No Consequences” demonstrated, weak or non-existent enforcement equals greater opportunity for terrible things to happen.

Chaos is the enemy of peace. The public must get the facts and reject this plan, and its architect, Secretary Clinton.

The National Border Patrol Council, and its 16,500 Border Patrol Agent members stand in opposition to this reckless, radical and deeply dangerous plan.

The Navy and LGBTS: Joined at The Ship

Posted on:

Tony Perkins | FRC Action

While the rest of the world was focused on the terrorist attacks in France, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus was busy putting another politically correct stamp on the military. On July 14, outlets are now reporting, the political appointee (and one of the staunchest activists for special LGBT privileges) inked his name to a notice that he planned on naming a new ship in honor of the late gay icon and San Francisco politician Harvey Milk. The news should be astounding to anyone familiar with Milk and his less-than-honorable life story. Although he served briefly in the Navy, nothing he did merits the kind of tribute Mabus is giving him.

As FRC’s Peter Sprigg said when Milk was awarded a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom, “Milk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered — and having sex with men.” Now, the Navy seems intent on following in the administration’s ridiculous footsteps and bestowing a great honor on someone primarily on the basis of his sex life. While the LGBT community has long idolized Milk for his decision to live openly, his Navy career is hardly the stuff of legend. In fact, one of the defining biographies on the man (written by a self-described “gay journalist”) insists that Harvey “continued to engage in homosexual conduct while serving in the U.S. Navy” against the law. According to Peter, author Randy Shilts reports that Milk, who had his own apartment off base, would pick up hitchhiking sailors by offering them a bed to sleep in. What he didn’t tell them is that it was his bed. “The guests often would not know that Milk’s apartment had only one bed until they walked in the door.”

“Milk later exploited his time in the Navy during his political career,” Peter explains, “by lying about it, claiming falsely that he had received a dishonorable discharge for his homosexuality. Milk ‘knew the story would make good copy,’ according to Shilts. ‘Maybe people will read it, feel sorry for me and then vote for me,’ Milk told one campaign manager.”

A life marred by promotion of illegal drug use, sexual exploits, and lies doesn’t deserve one of the greatest military distinctions — especially not with so many genuine heroes to choose from. “Since Harvey Milk died from an assassin’s bullet,” Peter pointed out, “over a quarter million American men have died of AIDS, which they contracted because they had sex with other men. [It’s madness] that someone whose only claim to fame is that they promoted such deadly behavior should be honored…”

If you’re as disturbed by Mabus’s plans as we are, bring this up to your House and Senate leaders while they’re home campaigning and hosting townhalls. Let them know that the Navy’s idea is an outrageous one when there are so many other deserving men and women, whose courage mattered — not in the bedroom — but on the battlefield.

“If we mean to support the liberty and independence which has cost us so much blood and treasure to establish, we must drive far away the demon of party spirit and local reproach.” – President George Washington

Americans are once again caught up in the political cycle and settling for what has been handpicked and presented as an option. Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton are both immoral. Trump has been married 3 times. If he cannot be faithful to God, swearing to uphold his marriage oath, how can he be faithful to this country? How would he, or how could he, be faithful to the laws of our Constitution to keep America free? Clinton is a high profile repeat criminal, yet both advocate that which God condemns (Sodomy and abortion), therefore both are illegitimate and unqualified candidates. Furthermore they both claim to be Christians (1 John 2:4; Matthew 24:5). How does that Kool-aid taste? Nothing could be further from the truth (2 Corinthians 11:15).

Furthermore, you were warned by President Franklin Roosevelt, who blurted out the truth in his confusion, when he stated,

“Presidents are selected, not elected.”

Yet, Americans have been exposed to this truth every single step of the way, over and over, but most do not take heed (Deuteronomy 6:12).

America, how long are you going to let these criminals control the game in which they have caught you up?

I remember when the Constitution Party candidate for the presidency of the United States in 2004 told me, “If you were to take Ronald Reagan and put him into a room, and Jesus Christ into another room, that room with Ronald would be packed with followers, whereas Jesus would be left alone.” How right on was his statement?

Look at the idolatry of the American people who do not learn from history, throwing off God while submitting themselves to a corrupt man or woman (Jeremiah 17:5).

These candidates are doing their best to deceive, as well as to get the American people to forget about our Christian heritage. In fact, this has been the objective of Barack Hussein Obama from the beginning of his corrupt administration. Remember that he was going to fundamentally transform America? How do you do that? Attack the foundations, which are our Christian heritage and the United Stated Constitution.

Let me take you back to the 2012 election cycle at the Democratic National Convention where it was reported that Republicans were calling out the Democrats for removing references to “God” from their party platform. While the Democrats refused, God the Republicans gave it over to their foreign and false gods (Deuteronomy 10:17).

Now, these anti-Americans have to be told to put the American flag into the convention. The Communists and anti-Christ’s are on full display today. 1 John 2:15-19

Harmeet Dhilion opened the second night of the Republican Convention with a Sikh prayer by singing the invocation in Punjabi and then translating it into English.

Then we have Sajid Tarar, who delivered up an benediction at the Republican National Convention, praising the prophet Muhammad.

Earlier in the campaign season, we saw a woman introducing Hillary Clinton and citing the words from the Pledge of Allegiance, but purposefully ignoring “under God.”

Apparently, these foreigners, as well as the Republicans, have forgotten that we are a Christian nation. That is why people left their native countries and came to America.

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were… the general principles of Christianity… I will avow that I then believed and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence of and attributes of God.” –President John Adams

Today’s Republicans are yesterday’s Democrats! Secondly, for them that have been dumbed down to believe that we have a two, three or four party system, here is a newsflash: We have one Constitution; we do not have a two, three or four party system. There’s no better way than to divide and conquer, is there? This is the mentality taken on by those who look no further than what they are told.

“There is nothing I dread so much as a division of the Republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader and converting measures in opposition to each other.” – John Adams

This all reminds me of when Christ was being delivered up by the transgressors of God’s Law (Exodus 20; 1 John 3:4) to be crucified (John 8:46) by the religious hypocrites and the Herodians (Mark 8:15). These people asked for a guilty criminal to be released while delivering up an innocent man, namely the Son of God, in an attempt to justify themselves before one another. What they did not realize is that they were bringing judgment upon themselves (Matthew 27:25).

And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

(Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison…)

But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.

But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

For, behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? -Luke 23:18-21;27-31

So far as any persons are implied, we must think of our Lord as speaking of the representatives of Roman power. If Pilate could thus sentence to death One in whom he acknowledged that he could find no fault, what might be expected from his successors when they had to deal with a people rebellious and in arms? – Elliot’s commentary

Soon enough, America’s idolatry and mockery of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the absolute disdain for His Son Jesus Christ who hath shed His grace upon thee will all be over with. America is being turned into hell, and she still thinks it’s a party (Jeremiah 9:1-13).

Abdourahman Alamoudi, Jailed al Qaeda Financier, Frequented the Clinton White House

Posted on:

One of the most disturbing things about Hillary’s judgement is her optimistic view of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bruce Cornibe | Counter Jihad

Islamists pose a particular security risk to our U.S. government. They want to slowly introduce Sharia law into our system of government and take away our most cherished freedoms. Islamists such as Muslim Brotherhoodaffiliated groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) not only strive to take away our fundamental freedoms, but they oftentimes also lobby against our government’s ability to crackdown on Islamic terrorism.

For example, Farhana Khera of Muslim Advocates wrote a letter in 2011 to the U.S. Department of Justice telling it the FBI needs to purge “highly offensive counterterrorism training materials about Muslims and Islam used to train its agents and law enforcement.”

Some Islamists, even after empowering radical Islam in the policy arena, will go so far as to support terrorist groups like Hamas (more often done privately) or receive funding from such groups. Islamists operate so effectively in U.S. politics because of politicians that enable them. Bill and Hillary Clinton are those type of politicians – having a political past mired with Islamist ties.

One of those Islamists happens to be Abdurahman Alamoudi, a man sentenced to twenty-three years in prison because of “his activities in the United States and abroad with nations and organizations that have ties to terrorism[.]” Alamoudi has been involved in a number of maliciousactivities such as a “Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince” and being “an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United States.” So, what’s his connection with the Clintons?

An affidavit by Dr. John Esposito, a Georgetown professor with numerous Islamist ties, reveals that in 1996, Hillary asked Alamoudi to help with an Iftar reception at the White House:

…when Hilary Clinton decided to host the first ever White House reception to celebrate the end of Ramadan (called the Iftar), Mrs. Clinton asked Mr. Alamoudi to prepare the guest list.

Patrick Poole with PJ Media reports, “Under the Clinton administration, Alamoudi was tasked with founding and developing the Defense Department’s first-ever Muslim chaplain program. Alamoudi himself handpicked the Pentagon’s Muslim chaplain corps.”

Furthermore, it’s not shocking that Al Qaeda’s Anwar al-Awlaki (inspired several 9/11 hijackers) at one point trained U.S. military chaplains. It’s disturbing to know that we have subversive radical Islamists training and advising our leaders in government who want to see the destruction of the America that we all know and love. Besides receiving trips funded on the backs of taxpayers, it was also discovered that Alamoudi was helping out Osama bin Laden, PJ Media reports:

After the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the speechwriter for the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman told the FBI thatAlamoudi had been funneling $5000 payments from Osama bin Laden to Rahman. Rahman is currently serving a life sentence on terror charges for his role in the “Day of Terror” plot targeting New York landmarks.

In this video, allegedly taken outside of the White House in 2000, Alamoudipublicly displays his support for Hamas and Hezbollah in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

Alamoudi isn’t the only Islamist with connections with the Clintons. In 2010, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allowed a professor that is a known Islamist, Tariq Ramadan,re-entry into the U.S. (in 2004, the U.S. rescinded Ramadan’s visa).

The Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that Ramadan gave financial support to a French charity called “Comite de Bienfaisance et de Secours aux Palestiniens” (CBSP) that’s affiliated with Hamas.

Besides these individual cases and many others, one of the most disturbing things about Hillary’s judgement is her optimistic view of the Muslim Brotherhood. In a 2011 speech, then Secretary of State Clinton exposes her naiveté about the Egyptian Brotherhood – showing a willingness to engage the group, stating:

“We believe, given the changing political landscape in Egypt, that it is in the interests of the United States to engage with all parties that are peaceful and committed to nonviolence, that intend to compete for the parliament and the presidency,” she told reporters in Budapest, Hungary. “And we welcome, therefore, dialogue with those Muslim Brotherhood members who wish to talk with us.”

But, she added, any such contacts “will continue to emphasize the importance of and support for democratic principles, and especially a commitment to nonviolence, respect for minority rights, and the full inclusion of women in any democracy. You cannot leave out half the population and claim that you are committed to democracy.”

Of course, the Brotherhood says they are committed to non-violence and the democratic process but only as far as it allows Islamists to come to power and change the system to fit their Sharia ideology.

We witnessed this in Egypt when Muslim Brotherhood leader Morsi democratically came to power and began to transform Egypt into an Islamic state, some examples include: approving a Sharia influenced constitution, press censorship, failure to protect religious minorities (ex. Coptic Christians), and many more. In addition, the Brotherhood has had a violent past and there is no reason to believe they would not revert back to their old tendencies.

As we have seen, the Clintons not only have a propensity for tolerating individual Islamists, but they also buy into the diplomatic language of the Muslim Brotherhood. Furthermore, Hillary continues to provide a mouthpiece for an ‘Islamophobia’ campaign that seeks to silence the critics of Islamism. This ignorance of the Muslim Brotherhood strategy is a major liability for our country, especially since Hillary Clinton is one election away from occupying the most powerful position in the U.S. government.

Tim Kaine Promoted Group Federal Prosecutors Call “the Overt Arm of the Muslim Brotherhood”

Posted on:

This shows Kaine’s failure to take the threat of radical Islam seriously.

Bruce Cornibe  | Counter Jihad

Vice Presidential nominee and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has held some notable positions throughout his political career (Mayor of Richmond, Governor of Virginia, etc.), and continues the tradition – serving as a Virginia Senator as well as a member of important national security teams such as the Senate Armed Services and the Senate Foreign Relations Committees.

However, along with Kaine’s political experience lies a past filled with Islamist connections. Let’s take a look at Kaine’s associations with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim American Society (MAS) as well as other Islamist groups.

The Clarion Project provides some evidence of MAS’s Muslim Brotherhood background:

Federal prosecutors said in 2008 that “MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America” and that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and MAS “omit reference to a shared background that limits their membership to those of a particular political bent, and undercuts their credibility.” In January 2012, Abdurrahman Alamoudi, an admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood operative that was convicted on terrorism-related charges in 2004, stated, “Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”

It’s important to note that the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy for North America is about performing a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.” The Brotherhood’s ultimate goals are to re-establish the Islamic caliphate and implement Sharia law.

As Virginia’s Governor in 2007, Kaine spoke at the 5th Annual Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation event. MAS was described by U.S. federal prosecutors as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gates of Vienna reports that Kaine “stressed the need for people of all faith traditions to work together to overcome intolerance and bigotry[,]” a key message of the ‘interfaith dialogue’ movement – a movement which Islamists generally promote to conceal their true intentions of furthering Islam. Also in 2007, Kaine regrettably appointed MAS President Dr. Esam Omeish to Virginia’s Commission on Immigration (Omeish resigned shortly after). The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reveals some of Omeish’s radical proclivities:

…online videos that show Omeish at rallies denouncing the invasion of Lebanon by the “Israeli war machine” andtelling a crowd of Washington-area Muslims: “…you have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.” The latter video was obtained exclusively by the Investigative Project on Terrorism and can be viewed on YouTube, along withanother video that shows Omeish congratulating Palestinians for giving up their lives for the sake Allah.

It’s alarming to think a man who has publicly advocated for jihad was picked by Kaine to influence immigration policy. And now Kaine’s a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee? Even years after the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development Trial in 2007, which exposed the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for North America, Kaine continues to hang around Islamists.

For example, in 2011, then Senate candidate Kaine spoke at an event organized by New Dominion PAC that presented Jamal Barzinji, a major U.S. Brotherhood leader, with a Lifetime Achievement award. Kyle Shideler for the Center for Security Policy details Barzinji’s impact for the Brotherhood and how his ‘achievements’ were anything but noble:

Barzinji was one of the co-founders of the Muslim Brotherhood Think Tank known as the International Institute of Islamic Thought, located in Fairfax, Virginia. Barzinji was also a founding member of the Muslim Student’s Association (MSA), the founding general manager of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a member of the Majlis Ashura of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and director of the SAFA Group, a network of charities and companies headquartered in Northern Virginia, and raided by federal authoritiesover funding to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Barzinji was also a founding member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists of North America (AMSS) and Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE), both early Muslim Brotherhood organizations established out of the MSA.

Whether Kaine’s ignorance or knowledge of these Muslim Brotherhood groups and figures led him to make these ill-advised decisions is up for debate, but one thing that’s clear is Kaine’s failure to take the threat of radical Islam seriously.

Some examples of this failure to confront the dangers of radical Islam were exhibited in Kaine’s decision to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 2015 speech to Congress as well as efforts to delay the speech, Kaine’s support for Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the Iran deal, Kaine’s refusal to halt or pause the refugee resettlement program after the shootings in Paris in November of 2015, and the list continues.

It’s obvious from Kaine’s record that he does not perceive political Islam as major threat to U.S. national security. We must have leaders that can identify subversive Islamists groups within the American political system such as the Muslim Brotherood – who not only want to gradually introduce Sharia law but also will build arguments that defend their jihadist co-religionists. It’s obvious Islamic law does not coincide with Western valuessince it inherently opposes freedom, liberty, and equality. Kaine must denounce these past associations with Islamist groups and seek their ouster from our political process if he wants to effectively guard our fundamental American freedoms.
