13 Hours . . .

Last night my wife and I watched a “dramatic re-enactment” of the events of Benghazi that resulted in the death of the US Ambassador to Libya and 4 others.  It is called “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” and is available on disc through Netflix.

I’m not writing this to tell you that the cinematography is wonderful, or the acting worthy of an Oscar.  No, the events it is based on are real, and the person who was the Secretary of State at the time is now the Democratic Party nominee for the office of the US President.  THAT is what I’m writing about.

If you can watch this show, and still support Hillary as the next president of our country, please do us all a favor and DON’T VOTE.  If you won’t watch this show, and support Hillary, you’ve got your head in the sand and PLEASE DON’T VOTE.

There is nothing that this show can tell you better than this one fact: HILLARY does not care about US Citizens, even when they work for her. Remember her famous statement about who we should want to answer that hypothetical 3 AM phone call?  SHE GOT ONE AND REFUSED TO PICK UP THE PHONE.

I’ve told you before that if I have one talent, it is “seeing the big picture”.  So please, consider this:

Obamacare is basically what Hillary proposed when her husband was POTUS, but she couldn’t sell it – with the Democrats in control of the House AND the Senate.

Illegal Immigration harms middle-class US Citizens more than any other group.  When POTUS Reagan proposed an amnesty for 2 million illegals, the Democrats hailed it as a sign of compassion.  The result was an influx of 20 million more, over the next 20 years.  Many of those are taking jobs from US Citizens, causing the extended pain to the economic collapse we still have not recovered from.  Yet, the Democrats want another amnesty – which if the numbers hold up, would result in swelling the US from 320 Million to over 500 million within the next 20 years.  But, all the middle-class jobs are going overseas, so how are we going to support them?

While I’m talking about jobs, the Democrats love NAFTA, and are pushing hard for the Trans-Pacific Partnership – which is going to put more pressure on companies to cut manufacturing expenses – resulting in more jobs going to where labor costs are least. Oh, and why can’t we lower labor costs here?  Because the Democrats are in love with all the campaign money they get from Organized Labor – the Unions won’t let US industry pay wages that would be competitive with a global market.

Illegal Immigration also fuels the demand for constant increases to entitlement program spending, because Welfare and Food Stamps are not allowed to require proof of citizenship from applicants – under rules put in place by POTUS Clinton.

All of those illegals usually have one thing in common – they champion making the USA more like their former home, but they don’t come from successful industrialized countries.  They come from third-world countries and banana republics.  They aren’t coming here to get a better life, they are coming here to destroy ours.

It was POTUS Clinton who went on TV and told the banking industry that they were discriminating against the lower class when they refused credit to welfare recipients – giving them credit was (IMHO) the single biggest contributing factor to the housing bubble collapse.

All of this is causing the US middle class to vanish, but it was the US middle class that built this country and made it the greatest in the world in less than 100 years.  Instead, we have a very small percentage of wealthy people and a constantly growing poverty class.  As a “big picture” the one thing I see is that if Hillary wins in November, this experiment in self-governance will fail.  The US will be declared bankrupt, and we’ll loose our independence, our freedom, and our nation.

Big, scary numbers – not really…

I’m calling the BBC out on this one.

A few days ago, they posted an article online titled, “Obama considers unilateral action on US gun violence“. You can find it here: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35211294

What I want to call them out on is that the graphic at the bottom of the article makes the US look completely out of control on guns – and I’ll admit it looks very scary. Which I’m sure it is supposed to. What the BBC isn’t telling you is that they are reporting ALL forms of gun-related death, including suicide, drugs, gangs, criminal misuse of guns, legal self-defense, and police killing people caught committing crimes who resist arrest. NONE of those will be altered significantly by any unilateral action President Obama can take. Not even one.

What the anti-gun crowd consistently ignores is this one unalterable truth: criminals do not care what the laws are.

How many terrorists…?

(the following is from an email I got from the American Security Coalition – Vernon)

“I don’t know.”

Let those words sink in.

Nearly 10,000 suspected terrorists were mistakenly granted permission to lawfully enter the U.S. before the State Department realized they massively screwed up and revoked their visas.

When Congress recently asked, “What happened…where are they?”, an Obama administration official shrugged, “I don’t know.”

That’s right, Vernon.

Nearly 10,000 suspected terrorists are roaming around inside our country, they want to kill you, and the Obama administration has no idea where they are at and they barely seem to care.

It gets worse.

The State Department has denied visas to only 2,231 applicants who were suspected of terrorist activity.

If you do the math, that means the federal government lets into our country four times as many suspected terrorists as it keeps out.

Yet we’re supposed to believe Obama’s Syrian refugee program uses “rigorous” vetting and screening processes?

While at the same time, Obama implies you are un-American and a bigot for opposing him.

I’m counting on you to help me stop this — before it’s too late.

You and I simply cannot allow a flood of Islamists to continually pour into our country, regardless of the reason — not after what we saw in France and San Bernardino.

That’s why the American Security Coalition has developed an aggressive program designed to educate and mobilize the American public against the grave dangers that Obama’s Syrian refugee program poses to our national sovereignty, security and values.

With your support, my plan is to create a grassroots firestorm to pressure Congress to secure our country and bring Obama’s Syrian refugee program to a hard-and-fast end.

DHS Official Unable to Give Number of Syrians in U.S. or Number of Expired Visas

http://freebeacon.com/national-security/dhs-official-unable-to-give-number-of-syrians-in-u-s-or-number-of-expired-visas/

A senior Department of Homeland Security official was unable to tell Congress the number of Syrian refugees who have entered the United States in the last year and the number of Americans who have travelled to Syria and returned, in testimony on Capitol Hill that angered many lawmakers.

and, if that isn’t bad enough, check this out

(the following is from an email I got from a group called American Security Coalition)

Barack Obama barked out orders and Congress rolled over and obeyed.

In the $1.1 trillion dollar spending bill negotiated by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Republicans caved and fully funded Obama’s refugee program.

And while the Republican controlled House passed legislation with a veto proof majority that would have tightened the screening for refugees entering America, that language was dropped on the cutting room floor of the trillion dollar spending binge.

Now thousands of refugees from Syria — and other lawless Muslim nations — will nest in America.

Foxnews.com is reporting 100,000 Syrians have already flooded into our country since 2012.

Vernon, it’s not a hypothetical for ISIS to exploit the refugee program as a Trojan Horse to sneak jihadist fighters into America.

At least one of the Paris terrorists entered France as a refugee.

Obama Admin Confirms They Will Undermine Congress and Pass GUN CONTROL by Executive Action VERY SOON

Obama may have been elected as the US President, but the job he really wanted was DICTATOR. One question – if he does try this, is there anyone in the US House of Representatives with the guts to file Impeachment charges? Or can they get a bill to block funding, with enough votes to override a veto?

UN Small Arms Treaty . . .

Negotiations are underway in Mexico, even as you read this, to use the UN Small Arms Treaty as a vehicle to give President Obama all the gun-control powers he’s been craving.

If you care about this, please sign a petition aimed at your Congress officials, to pressure them to fight against it.
