MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Former Adviser Reveals Obama Wanted to Impress Muslims by Ditching Israel

By Daniel Greenfield

Jennifer Rubin has an excerpt from an interview with Dennis Ross, a former senior adviser to Obama.

"When the president comes in, he thinks we have a major problem with Arabs and Muslims. And he sees that as a function of the Bush administration — an image, fairly or not, that Bush was at war with Islam. So one of the ways that he wants to show that he’s going to have an outreach to the Muslim world is that he’s going to give this speech in Cairo. So he wants to reach out and show that the US is not so close to the Israelis, which he thinks also feeds this perception. That’s why there’s an impulse to do some distancing from Israel, and that’s why the settlement issue is seized in a way."

It's not news, but it is confirmation that Obama deliberately sought to alienate and distance Israel. And would have done so regardless of who was the Prime Minister of Israel.

MAP: Did your state silently absorb more Syrian Muslim Refugees (with likely ISIS infiltrators) this month?

By Ann Corcoran

The Obama Administration says they will resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the US in FY 2016 which began October 1. Here is a map showing where the first 187 Syrians have been placed (as of today)*. Two weeks ago, it had been only 51 (see here), but Kentucky is still the number one destination (here with 26).

Of the 187 admitted to the US this month, 183 are Sunni Muslims. There were 3 Catholics and 1 Christian. That is 98% Muslim. Last year the percentage of Muslims in the Syrian flow to America was 97%.

If Obama wants to get 10,000 in here in one year, they will surely have to step this up. I expect the slow start involves the problem they are having doing the security screening. He will have to get almost 900 a month in here to make his quota.

War of the Worlds

By Jim Quinn

“We know now that in the early years of the twentieth century this world was being watched closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own. We know now that as human beings busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacence men went to and fro over the earth about their little affairs … In the thirty-ninth year of the twentieth century came the great disillusionment. It was near the end of October. Business was better. The war scare was over. More men were back at work. Sales were picking up.” – Opening monologue of War of the Worlds broadcast – October 30,1938

It was 77 years ago this week that Orson Welles struck terror into the hearts of Americans with his live radio broadcast of the HG Wells classic War of the Worlds. The broadcast began at 8:00 pm on Mischief Night 1938. As I was searching for anything of interest to watch the other night on the 600 cable stations available 24/7, I stumbled across a PBS program about Welles’ famous broadcast. As I watched the program, I was struck by how this episode during the last Fourth Turning and how people react to events is so similar to how people are reacting during the current Fourth Turning. History may not repeat exactly, but it certainly rhymes.

I’M SICK OF THIS S***: Time for Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to Moderate a GOP Debate

Writing at Breitbart, John Hayward points us to an excellent missive by the Ronald Reagan PAC imploring the Republican candidates to use real debate moderators.

...the Republican National Committee has chosen liberal moderators to handle the Republican presidential primary debates. To the surprise of nobody, the [CNBC] debate that ensued consisted of moderators insulting, demeaning and embarrassing the Republican candidates who participated.

Indeed, in the words of Reagan’s own Attorney General Ed Meese, “After 15 minutes it was clear that this was not a debate, but a verbal shooting gallery set up by CNBC, with the targets the Republican candidates and the shooters their biased antagonists from the press.”

...The Republican National Committee offered sanctioned debates to left-leaning networks such as NBC and CNN, yet offered nothing to actual conservative opinion leaders such as ... Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity ... and Mark Levin, who together influence more Republican primary voters than all the television networks combined. As a result, the past three debates have come across as reality television instead of a serious debate on the issues.

Hayward adds some compelling observations:

SICK: Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) Endangers Military by Playing Politics with Weapons Purchases

By Institute for Legislative Action

In 1995, Bob Dole said of Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), “[t]he most dangerous place is between him and a camera.”

Last Friday, Schumer publicly announced a plan to require bidders for a $580 million Department of Defense contract to supply the U.S. Army with handguns to submit to questioning regarding efforts to push a gun control agenda. The fact is, Schumer’s attempt to subject the vital fighting equipment of our nation’s servicemen and women to petty politics is nothing more than a cynical attempt to indulge his lust for press coverage, and is a reckless and dangerous threat to the safety of our service men and women.

The sole intent of the DOD procurement process should be to equip our fighting men and women with the best arms for their mission. To factor in the supplier’s willingness to kowtow to Schumer’s gun control demands alongside criteria such as accuracy and reliability risks supplying our troops with inferior equipment. Our soldier’s lives rely in part on the functional capability of their weapons, and to suggest that these soldiers should be used as a political pawn to enact gun control the Senator cannot achieve through our democratic process is reprehensible.

The specifics of the proposal are outlined in a letter from Schumer to Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh.

This Is What The "Invasion Of Europe" Looks Like

By Tyler Durden

On Monday, we brought you a series of still shots along with a video which depicted the scope of Europe’s migrant crisis via drone footage.

The point in highlighting the imagery was to demonstrate just how futile the EU’s effort to establish a series of refugee “holding camps” along the Balkan route to Germany is likely to be. 

TED CRUZ GOES NUCLEAR ON GOPe: Mitch McConnell "Has Proven to be a Very Effective Democratic Leader"

By Kate Scanlon

In a speech Thursday on the Senate floor, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, sharply criticized the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, a budget deal between former House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama.

Cruz said the deal is yet another example of the failure of the “so-called Republican majority” to deliver on their promises to the American people.

“Now, if someone is an effective Democratic leader, you would expect them to be able to pass legislation when a majority of Democrats supported it and a majority of Republicans opposed it,” Cruz said. “Indeed, if you’re a partisan Democrat, that would be almost the definition of an effective Democratic leader.”

“Nineteen times in the last ten months this so-called Republican majority has passed legislation, has had a vote succeed where a majority of Democrats supported it and a majority of Republicans opposed it,” Cruz added.

Cruz said that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., “has proven to be a very effective Democratic leader.”

SAY, IS THIS A CLINTON INITIATIVE? NY Obamacare Exchange Enrolls Hundreds Who Appear to be... Dead

By Rusty Weiss

An audit by the State Comptroller’s Office has revealed that hundreds of dead people were enrolled in New York’s health exchange, with nearly two dozen of them enrolling after death.

Medicaid payments totaling over $300,000 were paid out to a majority of the deceased individuals.

Via Politics on the Hudson:

A state audit Thursday found that New York’s health exchange enrolled hundreds of dead people at a $325,000 cost to taxpayers.

Between 2013 and 2014, the health exchange during its infancy improperly enrolled 354 deceased individuals that the state Health Department identified as active Medicaid recipients.

As a result, Medicaid inappropriately paid $325,030 in claims associated with 230 of the 354 deceased enrollees, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said in the audit.

The Times Union is reporting that of the 354, at least “21 of those people officially enrolled after they had died.”

It’s unclear what health services were provided for those not among the living...

MARCO RUBIO: Young, Stupid Americans Simply Incapable of Competing With Foreigners for Tech Jobs

By Julia Hahn

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) told a nationwide audience in Wednesday’s CNBC Republican presidential debate that companies are importing foreign graduates because American college grads just can’t do the work.

The claim came when CNBC’s John Hardwood asked Rubio if he was undercutting American professionals by supporting a bill to let companies import more foreign temporary H-1B “guest workers” for white-collar jobs. Rubio evaded the question by blaming Americans’ supposed lack of skills.

"We need to get back to training people in this country to do the jobs of the 21st century… The best way to close this gap is to modernize higher education so Americans have the skills for those jobs,” Rubio claimed. The “ideal scenario is to train Americans to do the work, so we don’t have to rely on people from abroad,” Rubio declared.

According to labor experts and U.S. census data, foreign workers are often used to replace employed American workers, and the U.S. labor market is now flooded with under-employed Americans hoping to pay off their college debts and earn a decent wage.

“It’s ironic that Rubio would basically blame American workers for not being skilled and trained [even though] American workers in his own state, who have the skills and were doing their job, were replaced by H-1B workers, who had less skills,” Howard University professor Ron Hira told Breitbart News.

COMFORTING: Obama Assures Americans He’s Really Not "Out to Take Everyone’s Guns Away"

By David Codrea

“Please do not believe this notion that I’m out to take everyone’s guns away,” Barack Obama pleaded in his Tuesday speech before the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference in Chicago (watch here).

“Nobody is doing that. We’re talking about common sense measures to make sure criminals don’t get them.”

Actually, plenty of people are doing that, from increasing calls to repeal the Second Amendment to Hillary Clinton asserting the Supreme Court got it wrong when it ruled 2A an individual right, to Hillary and Obama himself entertaining Australian-style “gun control,” which entailed gun bans and government collection of firearms. That’s what “progressives” mean by “common sense measures.”

Next we need to look at who Obama was talking to. The globalist IACP is on record opposing citizen ownership of militia-suitable ammunition, firearms and body armor. They oppose efforts to roll back restrictions on the right to bear arms. They’re for enforcing existing Intolerable Acts, a “no guns” list, waiting periods, and ending private sales. And those are just the cards they’ve shown. For now.

It’s fitting the group met in Chicago, home of Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, a monopoly of violence fanatic who has condemned gun owners for being politically active, and told them he’s training his guys to shoot first and ask questions later when encountering armed citizens. Bearing in mind that with “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day, we can see how that would be championed as a “common sense gun safety measure.”

So must be this revealing endorsement:

The Death of Central Banking in One Chart

By Tyler Durden

Perhaps "The Japanification of Monetary Policy" would have been a more appropriate title... "well it didn't work for them, so we should all try more of it" appears to be the repost of policy-makers worldwide which, inevitably, will lead to the total collapse of their credibility (and the every 'faith' of the world's investors shattered).

The most dangerous misconception about our criminal justice system

Earlier this week, Heather Mac Donald testified on criminal justice and the deincarceration movement before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"The most dangerous misconception about our criminal justice system is that it is pervaded by racial bias"

Today I want to examine the broader political context of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act. We are in the midst of a national movement for deincarceration and decriminalization. That movement rests on the following narrative: America’s criminal justice system, it is said, has become irrationally draconian, ushering in an era of so-called “mass incarceration.” The driving force behind “mass incarceration,” the story goes, is a misconceived war on drugs. As President Barack Obama said in July in Philadelphia: “The real reason our prison population is so high” is that we have “locked up more and more nonviolent drug offenders than ever before, for longer than ever before.” In popular understanding, prisons and jails are filled with harmless pot smokers.

The most poisonous claim in the dominant narrative is that our criminal justice system is a product and a source of racial inequity. The drug war in particular is said to be infected by racial bias. “Mass incarceration” is allegedly destroying black communities by taking fathers away from their families and imposing crippling criminal records on released convicts. Finally, prison is condemned as a huge waste of resources.

Nothing in this dominant narrative is true.

Good Riddance To Johnny Lawnchair: The Fastest Fold On The Potomac

By David Stockman

There are few political hacks in Washington more deserving of everlasting ignominy than retiring speaker John Boehner. So here’s a vehement good riddance to the man who has single-handedly destroyed whatever pathetic semblance of fiscal responsibility that remained in Washington.

The so-called bipartisan budget deal he confected as a parting gesture doesn’t even deserve to be called a farce. It’s actually just an extension of Washington’s pathological lying to the American public about the monumental fiscal calamity now brewing.

The chart below shows the patented formula—– employed for the second time since the sequester mechanism was put in place during the debt ceiling crisis of 2011.

It will increase spending by $85 billion in the here and now by busting the FY 2016 and 2017 caps. This new red ink will then, purportedly, be off-set way down the road with gimmicks, imaginary IRS audit revenues and hazy disability benefit reforms which will never materialize. Never.

Indeed, these people are beyond shame.

HILLARY LETS IT SLIP: If Elected President, She Will Indeed Try to Confiscate Your Guns

By John Farnam

It slips out:

As Hillary Clinton floundered on the witness stand last week, despite withering help from her Democrat apologists who dutifully fell in line and insisted that she can do no wrong, her speech last Friday on the subject of private ownership of guns by American citizens has gone largely unreported.

Last Friday, Clinton, in a rare moment of honesty, advocated for the forced confiscation of privately, legally-owned guns from otherwise innocent American citizens.

She extolled the virtue of the “Australian Model,” which in 1996 was a universal gun “buy-back” program. She went on to say that such a system “would be worth considering (in America) on a national level.”

QOTD: "The Clinton Foundation has until November 16 to amend more than ten years’ worth of state, federal and foreign filings, but it’s going to be virtually impossible to do so without acknowledging that it has engaged in massive accounting fraud since its inception...

...[Financial whistleblower Charles Ortel, who helped expose massive financial fraud by GE, GM and AIG,] is hardly alone in raising questions about the Clinton Foundation’s accounting practices. Earlier this year, the watchdog group Charity Navigator put the Clinton Foundation on its “watch list” of dubious non-profit groups and politely described its business practices as “atypical.” A New York Post story about the development noted that in 2013 the family’s foundation “took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in…but spent just $9 million on direct aid.”

...The problem, Ortel says, is that filing correct returns is impossible for the Clinton Foundation without admitting to criminal felonies. “The foundation has never filed a legitimate, independently certified and complete audit of their financial statements since it was founded, as is required under state, federal and foreign law” he told me during one of multiple phone conversations. 'The IRS has let them get away with serious fraud.'" --Ken Silverstein

Clinton Foundation Must Restate All Tax Filings by 11/16; Were AIDS Drugs Used to Launder Money?

It's not only the FBI -- which is investigating her mishandling of classified files -- that has Hillary Clinton worried. The Clinton Foundation's financial skulduggery is also set to return to the spotlight. Ken Silverstein has the very interesting tale.

The Clinton Foundation has until November 16 to amend more than ten years’ worth of state, federal and foreign filings, but it’s going to be virtually impossible to do so without acknowledging that it has engaged in massive accounting fraud since its inception

...the [Clinton] foundation portrays itself as do-gooder nonprofit organization but a cursory look reveals questionable and incomplete disclosures of its activities and accounts, as well as incredible misspending of donor money, virtually since its inception...

...the problems appear set to catch up with the foundation (now formally known as the Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Clinton Foundation), which has until November 16 to amend more than ten years’ worth of state, federal and foreign filings. According to Charles Ortel, a financial whistleblower, it will be difficult if not impossible for the foundation to amend its financial returns without acknowledging accounting fraud and admitting that it generated substantial private gain for directors, insiders and Clinton cronies, all of which is against the law under an IRS rule called inurement.

While inurement may sound obscure to the layman, it’s an ancient legal principle and the IRS is very clear that it is verboten. If you are familiar with it, it becomes immediately clear that Bill Clinton – and arguably Hillary and daughter Chelsea as family members and fellow Clinton Foundation trustees – could have big problems come November 16. So, too, could Clinton cronies like Ira Magaziner (see below) and Doug Band, a Clinton administration and former Foundation insider who subsequently became a founding partner of a bipartisan business swamp called Teneo Holdings...

...“It’s illegal to set up a foundation whose primary purpose is to create financial gain,” said Ortel – who helped expose massive financial fraud by GE, GM and AIG, thereby helping trigger the 2009 financial collapse...

God, Obama and Post-Constitutional America

By Kenneth Levin

"Nam homo proponit, sed Deus disponit," wrote the medieval cleric Thomas a Kempis. "For man proposes, but God disposes."

The observation that human intent, however well conceived and deftly pursued, is commonly frustrated, does not require the invoking of God. One can, for example, comprehend the frustrating agent as fate, fortune or simply the exigencies of worldly existence.

But the founders of our republic considered the particular circumstance of people’s aspirations and intent being frustrated by the heavy hand of government, and in addressing this phenomenon they clearly attached importance to invoking God.

In the Declaration of Independence, they assert, of course, "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." They further assert that the proper role of government, indeed the raison d'etre of government, is to secure these God-given rights.

All the signers of the Declaration were Christian, but they did not all comprehend God in the same way. Nor were the distinctions simply a reflection of sectarian theological differences. Some, including Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration, were sympathetic to Enlightenment-inspired deism, belief in a creator who does not directly intervene in the world but established it with rationally comprehensible natural and moral laws. He was critical, for example, of elements of the Gospels that he believed did not meet the test of reason.

SHOCKER: Boehner, McConnell and Obama package another two-year budget blowout and debt limit increase

What's another few trillion among friends, especially when the bills will be due in a decade or two?

John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Barack Obama have crafted yet another out-of-order budget deal in secret. Par for the course with this egregious crew, members of Congress and the American public were not consulted.

Their "deal" would increase the debt limit for another two years, adding another trillion dollars to our kids' bill, increase spending by $80 billion, and yields the hilarious promise of "entitlement reform" at some point in the future. That last bit is supposed to make you believe that all of these insane IOUs will be paid for, eh, later.

Last week, the House Republican Study Committee offered a serious plan that was -- you guessed it -- completely ignored by the Beltway Cartel.

QOTD: "Conservatives who supported an effort to oust Speaker John A. Boehner pointed to a budget deal emerging Monday as a prime example of why the House needs new leadership.

...Members said they were not provided enough details Monday evening to judge the substance of the deal but complained about the process by which it came together and the way it could advance quickly in a matter of days, just before Boehner’s departure.

Despite the consternation, there appeared to be a pathway with a combination of Democratic votes and national security hawks in both chambers.

...In announcing the deal during the closed-door meeting, Boehner effectively “threw the committee chairmen under the bus,” Fleming said." --Lindsey McPherson

THE NFL MUST BE VERY PROUD: The Houston Texans’ Uday Aboushi Publicly Supports Terror Attacks on Israel

By Joe Kaufman

NFL football player Oday Aboushi arrived in South Florida this weekend to play against the Miami Dolphins, this time in the uniform of the Houston Texans, as the team he previously played for, the New York Jets, waived him in the offseason. And while the team he plays for may have changed, his actions as an anti-Israel Muslim extremist remain fully intact.

Normally, Sunday is game time for National Football League (NFL) players, but since the Texans’ Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts was played on Thursday, October 8th, the upcoming Sunday was an open date. Oday Aboushi, Offensive Lineman for the Texans, used the opening to take to Twitter. What he tweeted would soon become a matter of huge controversy.

On Sunday, October 11th, Aboushi retweeted a tweet that was made the same day by a personal friend of his, Linda Sarsour, the Executive Director of the Arab-American Association of New York. It was a photo of a Palestinian toddler holding a good-sized rock in each hand, walking towards Israeli soldiers. The message Sarsour wrote above the picture, which Aboushi also tweeted, was “The definition of courage. Palestine.”

Sarsour’s post drew the ire of Democrat Councilman of Queens, New York, Rory Lancman. Lancman answered Sarsour’s tweet with one of his own, writing “No, the definition of barbarism.” He then sent a message addressed directly to Sarsour, stating “You must be especially proud of the 13-yr-old Palestinian who stabbed the 13-yr-old Israeli. Barbarism,” and Lancman added a link to the story.

Granny Catlady, who lost $6 billion while running the State Dept., blames budget cuts for Benghazi attack

One of the many rehearsed lies Hillary Clinton recited during her testimony last week was particularly galling.

"The State Department has historically and certainly before this terrible incident not had the amount of money that we thought would be necessary to do what was required to protect everyone. So, of course, there had to be priorities."

Of course, Clinton's very own State Department refuted that assertion three years ago.

But during a hearing October 10, 2013 Rep. Rohrabacher (R-CA) asked State Dept.’s Charlene Lamb “Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?” Lamb responded “No, sir.”

In fact, the State Department only carries a skeleton staff of roughly 70,000 freaking employees, so it's certain Ambassador Chris Stevens' 600 or so requests for a few bodyguards simply couldn't be accommodated.

Oh, yes. And under Ms. Clinton's watch, the State Department "misplaced" a mere $6 billion, so I can understand their budget shortfalls.

These people are the lowest of the low.

In full meltdown mode, ¡Jeb! goes running back to Nana and Papa for help with donors

The ¡Yeb! campaign is in full meltdown mode, which means -- you guessed it -- the Jebster has gone running back to Nanny and Poppy.

This closed-door summit for Jeb Bush’s richest donors was meant to be a pep rally, a reunion for loyalists eager to celebrate the family legacy with two former presidents... But as George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush draw supporters together under gray skies and unrelenting rains, the gathering has become a rescue operation for a candidate who looks unable to meet the expectations of the family brand...

...But behind closed doors, many donors also voiced concerns about the direction of the campaign. “Having 41 around helps take the edge off, but we all read the same newspapers and look at the same polls and it’s tough right now. There are a lot of people we thought would have written checks who aren’t on board yet..."

...Many of these dedicated Bush supporters are no longer denying that the guest of honor is unable to connect with a GOP electorate that has become increasingly fractured and stridently ideological since — and in reaction to — his brother’s presidency. And increasingly, donors say, they are no longer certain the Bush family can pull Jeb’s campaign out of its downward spiral.

Speaking of which, is there a better endorsement for Ted Cruz than George W. Bush's disparaging remarks regarding the brilliant Senator from Texas? Here's a guy who won't utter a peep regarding Barack Obama's ongoing scandals, his "pen and a phone" Constitutional Convention, his arson in the Middle East, and a simultaneous economic obliteration of the Middle Class -- but a guy who stands up and fights? Now, that can't be tolerated:
