The Obama left still pushing to crash the system.

What Emergency? CBO Says Just $25 Million of Obama’s $3.7 Billion Border Bill Would Be Spent This Summer

An analysis of President Barack Obama’s huge budget request for the border shows that it would only spend $25 million for the rest of the current fiscal year, which Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said means Congress should be in no rush to pass it.
The Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of Obama’s request late last week, and Sessions noted its results on the Senate floor Monday.

“CBO analysis suggests that only $25 million out of the $4.3 billion request will be spent this year. What does that mean?” Sessions asked. “It means we ought to slow down, and there is no basis to demand a $4.3 billion increase in spending, emergency spending.”
Obama has requested $3.7 billion for the border, and another $600 million to fight wildfires. But according to CBO, just $25 million would be spent during the rest of FY 2014, which ends in September. Most of the rest of it would be spent in 2015, and spending would continue through 2020.
In addition, all of the spending in 2014 would take place in the Department of Health and Human Services. Obama’s plan would give the Department of Homeland Security $1.1 billion, but none of that money would be used until FY 2015.
Most Republicans are already opposed to Obama’s proposal, and House Republicans are considering a much smaller bill that looks to speed up the deportation of immigrant children. House GOP leaders are also expected to try to pay for new spending with offsetting reductions elsewhere in the government, something Obama did not propose.
But Sessions’s comments are likely another reason Republicans will balk at Obama’s plan, since it would do nothing to beef up border activities until October, except for efforts by HHS to care for the roughly 60,000 children that have crossed so far. That’s likely to raise the question of why a border bill can’t be handled less quickly, as part of the regular appropriations process for FY 2015.
The CBO score also conflicts with the argument of Democrats and Obama administration officials, who have said money is urgently needed for border activities and may run out in August.
Earlier Monday morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said if Congress doesn’t act, “they’re going to run out of money.”
Republicans have argued that the flood of illegal immigrants has increased because Obama has said he would take executive branch actions later this year to somehow allow more illegal residents to stay. Sessions said on the Senate floor that any border bill that passes Congress should ensure that Obama cannot take this unilateral step.
Sessions said some reports say Obama could create work permits for up to six million illegal residents, and said Congress should take a stand and refuse to allow any funding for this activity.
“I believe any border legislation that is sent to us to the Senate by the House of Representatives, it should include specific language denying the president any funds to execute his planned work permit,” Sessions said.
He also asked all senators to support legislation from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that would prohibit funding for new border activities until Obama’s deferred deportation action is reversed.
Senate GOP staffers have noted in recent weeks that while the flood of just 60,000 children has led to billions in possible additional costs, the Senate-passed immigration bill would create millions of new green card opportunities for non-U.S. citizens — about 30 million over the next decade. Sessions noted that the Senate bill could allow almost every Central American family to enter the U.S. legally.
“President Obama’s illegal work permits add to the already-huge flow of lawful work permits issued by the federal government,” Sessions said.
“Between 2000 and 2013, we lawfully issued almost 30 million work and immigrant visas. To put that number in perspective, 30 million is about the population of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala combined.”

Here's the reason the Obama administration blocked news and Republican Congress people from seeing what's going on at the border


The despicable left and a war on women. These people have no morals only the quest for power


Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood's producers for a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday's HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, "Oh my God, I'm a Republi-c*nt." 

Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, "'True Blood' or true gall?" 
"The brilliant minds of 'True Blood' were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general," Palin told Breitbart News. "Their offer wasn’t presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway."
Palin also had some choice words for hypocritical Hollywood liberals who often gin up the phony "war on women" rhetoric. 
"To producers who throw these deceitfully 'flattering' bones that sound fun on the surface, is it really any wonder I don't accept your offers to participate in your shows?" she said. "Nice try HBO. I’d put any mama grizzly in America against a vampire any day; for only one of them actually exists. The left wants to talk about a 'war on women'? Keep engaging in your misogynist attacks on women you disagree with and we’ll see who wins your self-inflicted war in the court of decent public opinion."
On Sunday's episode, as Breitbart TV explained, two of the characters crashed a Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fundraiser at the George W. Bush Presidential Library that they said only lets in "a**sholes." The fundraiser ended up turning into a bloodbath:
While HBO's Award winning "True Blood" a popular vampire drama has had a long-running narrative with the bad guys cast as southern conservative politicians, last night's episode took it a step farther, calling Ted Cruz supporters a**holes and offensively referring to conservative woman in eveningware as "republic**ts"
When two of the main characters, vampires Eric Northman and Pam De Beaufort, are planning to crash a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas they are warned “They only let in a**holes.”
While dressing for the event in cowboy hats and Western evening attire Pam De Beaufort says "Oh my God I'm a republic**t"
And finally De Beaufort enters the gala proclaiming "Of all the horrible things I've seen in the last hundred years this could be the most disturbing."

The first apparent hard evidence that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was brought down by a surface-to-air missile is emerging from the crash site in eastern Ukraine, after experts confirmed on Monday there were signs of shrapnel damage to the aircraft.
The photograph above, first published by the Financial Times over the weekend, shows a piece of the downed Boeing 777 about a metre square with a gaping hole in the middle, surrounded by smaller holes and apparent burn marks.

The radical egalitarianism that leads to moral equivalence between Israel and Hamas

John and Ban’s Not-So-Excellent Cairo Adventure

You know you’re living in mundo bizarro when Egyptian strongman Abdel Fattah el-Sisi sounds (and is!) more reasonable than the U.S. secretary of State and the UN secretary general.

But that’s the way it is in this best of all possible worlds with John Kerry and Ban Ki-moon rocketing to Cairo to bring about a ceasefire in the latest Gaza War before Israel does something so rash as finally obliterating the murderous religious psychopaths of Hamas.  Heaven forfend!
El-Sisi undoubtedly knows better, as do numerous relatively more silent types like the Saudis and the Jordanians, all — or anyway most — of whom would like to see Hamas and its Muslim Brotherhood-Iran allies brought low, not to mention IS/ISIS and the rest of the mad Sunni branch. The people who live there — the semi-normal ones anyway — know that the Middle East is in serious need of a swamp draining and the only ones capable of doing it are the Israelis.  The Americans  under Obama are so out to lunch that they might as well be opening a McDonald’s franchise on Alpha Centauri.

Health care tax credits become tax woes

If this year's real-estate market is a good one for Larry Lyons, the federal subsidy that helped him buy health insurance may turn into a huge bill at income tax time.
Four months after the Good­lettsville real-estate agent chose a health insurance plan onhealthcare.gov, he's perplexed by a letter from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services asking him to prove his income and his children's citizenship.
"I have been filing tax returns for years with the IRS," Lyons said. "Now, I am going to have to send citizenship documentation."
And he's baffled by the demand for upfront proof of his 2014 income, which can vary widely depending on how many houses he sells and the prices of those homes.
If the estimate he gave when he applied for coverage turns out to be low, Lyons could be in for an unpleasant surprise in April — and so could many others, according to George Brandes, vice president of health care programs at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service.
The Affordable Care Act's subsidies for buying health coverage on the federal exchange are actually tax credits given in advance, with the final accounting due by April 15 when people file their returns. Many taxpayers will end up having to repay part or potentially all of their subsidies. Conversely, others may qualify for bigger refunds. It all depends on how well they estimated their 2014 incomes.
"As many as 1 in 5 of the people in the top half of the tax credit range might actually end up having income that puts them out of the tax credit range, which means whopping bills at tax time," Brandes said. "We're talking about millions of people here."
Everyone who applied for a tax credit on the federal health insurance exchange had to estimate 2014 income — an unusual scenario because most tax credits, such as those for college tuition or the adoption of a child, are typically given retroactively.
Brandes pointed to an analysis by labor and health policy experts published in Health Affairs. The authors concluded that people with incomes just over 400 percent of poverty are at greatest risk for unexpected tax problems. Using 2012 numbers, they gave the example of a family of four with a household income above $92,200 having to repay as much as $11,200.
That's a worst-case scenario. Most taxpayers will be given some level of protection through repayment caps.
Brandes said his comments are based on the Health Affairs study, which analyzed income data from California.
"They came up with some pretty shocking conclusions," he said. "They estimated that about 3 out of 4 subsidy recipients will be families with income changes greater than 10 percent" from the families' original projections. "Some people will have underestimated, and some people will have overestimated."
Lyons said it's hard to be accurate when estimating income based on unknown sales.
"If I have a great end of the year and I make more than I expected to, what kind of fines or charges or repayment am I going to have to make on the amount that I estimated?" he asked.
People can protect themselves from unpleasant surprises by reconciling their estimated income sooner rather than later, Brandes said. Waiting until later could also delay refunds.
People are supposed to report changes in income by logging into their healthcare.gov accounts or calling the health insurance marketplace at 1-800-318-2596.
"We estimate the reconciliation process could affect as many as 10 million or more taxpayers — those enrolled at the end of the open enrollment period plus enrollments from special enrollment events," Brandes said.
One way to lessen the risk of being hit with a repayment is to reduce gross income by putting more money into a pretax retirement account, he said.

Some people who make more than their estimated income and obtained tax credits to buy coverage on healthcare.gov will get a degree of protection through repayment caps. The caps are based on the federal poverty level, currently $11,670 for an individual and $23,850 for a family of four. The level changes according to the number of people in a family.

Illegal immigration is a lucrative business. The IRS never looked here.

New York immigration groups closing after fraud accusations

By Daniel Wiessner
(Reuters) - Two of the largest non-profit immigration service groups in the United States will shut down as part of a settlement of a lawsuit that accused them of defrauding thousands of clients, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Monday.
The International Professional Association will close immediately and the International Immigrants Foundation within two years, Schneiderman said. Their remaining assets of $2.2 million would be used to provide restitution to clients.
Schneiderman's predecessor, now-Governor Andrew Cuomo, filed a lawsuit in 2010 against the groups and their president, Edward Juarez, who for three decades has been a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues.
Cuomo said the groups charged exorbitant fees for services including securing work permits and residency and that their workers falsely claimed to be lawyers. Juarez was accused of using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and provide jobs for his former wife and children.
"Organizations like IIF and IPA prey upon vulnerable individuals who seek a better life in this country," Schneiderman said in a statement.
Juarez said in a statement that the groups' cases were handled only by licensed attorneys. He added that he never faced criminal charges and did not have to admit wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
"The ultimate loser(s) were the immigrants themselves," he said.
The settlement is the latest setback for Juarez, who was a radio host and columnist for the Spanish-language newspaper El Diario prior to the 2010 suit.
The IIF and IPA, according to the suit, advertised their services as being free or inexpensive. But people who signed up had to make monthly payments and pay thousands of dollars in fees for different types of services.
Juarez and his workers then gave clients poor advice, including suggesting immigrants enter sham marriages to gain citizenship, or failed to file paperwork properly, according to the suit.
The case is Cuomo v. International Immigrants Foundation, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No. 400143-2010.

We feel for that trick in 1986. Tribalism at war with the rule of law


Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) believes Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to punish Americans who are against illegal immigration. 

After he told the La Raza conference in Los Angeles that President Barack Obama gave the Latino community a "down payment" with his temporary amnesty program that halted the deportations "of our people," Gutierrez urged Hispanics to seek retribution at the ballot box.

"We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border," Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.
Gutierrez addressed the conference this weekend and also spoke on a panel. He said Obama assured him in a White House meeting last week with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that he would use executive actions to be a "generous and broad" as he can to "stop the deportation of people each and every day," as Breitbart News reported.
Gutierrez has been one of the biggest proponents of a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants. 

For the racialist everything is viewed through the lens of race. And, a pretty good business for some

DETROIT (WWJ) – After a class action lawsuit filed against the city of Detroit, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says that recent water shutoffs to Detroit residents were racially motivated.
Veronica Joice with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says, “That (the shutoffs are) being done in a discriminatory fashion; and they should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens — the majority of whom are African American here in Detroit.”
Attorney Alice Jennings, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Detroit residents, said it’s a known fact that there are corporations that owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.
“These companies are basically Caucasian companies,” Jennings said. “The folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African American.”
Asked by WWJ’s Charlie Langton directly if this is a “racial issue,” Jennings replied: “It sure is! You bet it is.”
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 homes and businesses in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. Water was restored to 43 percent after customers paid or worked out payment plans.
At a bankruptcy hearing Monday, federal Judge Steven Rhodes asked the city for an update on the water issue, but fell short of ordering any action.
Rhodes said the people of Detroit “need their water,” but added, “There’s nothing for me to do about that today.”
During the same hearing, water department officials announced they would stop water shutoffs for the next 15 days while working to do a better job getting the word out residents that the city will help poor people pay for water.
Talking to WWJ’s Sandra McNeil shortly after the announcement, water department spokesman Greg Eno admitted there’s no doubt that the department has been lax over the years, letting the bills pile up.
He said people who now owe more than they can afford are being asked to come in and apply for assistance through the Water Affordability Program.
Eno said, through, it’s not just free money.
“It also teaches them, or works into their budget, monies that would be dedicated to their water bill, because they have to make a contribution every month,” he explained. “This is not a program where you get everything given to you and you contribute nothing.”
Eno stressed, however, that not everyone in need will be able to get help.
“We don’t have, you know, a bottomless cup of funds,” he said, adding that’s why it’s important that affected customers come in as soon as possible.
As for the claim that residents are being targeted, but not corporations who are behind on their bills:
“The balances they have accrued — and, yes, some of them are significant, and we’ve made that list public — had been a result of storm water runoff charges; many of which are in dispute right now,” Eno said.
Eno said corporations are being given shutoff notices, too; and some, including Chrysler, have already paid up millions in overdue bills.
Monday’s developments came three days after an estimated 2,000 people took to the streets downtown to protest the water shutoffs. Among them was “Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo, who appeared unexpectedly, calling on others to join the demonstration.

The paradox of the Democrat voter...having it both ways and being a victim

America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Hillary's crony capitalism and aggressive attempt at censorship.

Halper book: Clintons lobbied GE to get rid of MSNBC's David Shuster

Hillary and Bill Clinton went to the top of the NBC food chain, all the way up to General Electric’s board, to get back at MSNBC's David Shuster in 2008, according to Daniel Halper’s forthcoming book “Clinton Inc.”
Halper, the online editor at the conservative Weekly Standard, details how far the Clinton camp went to get back at Shuster for saying that Chelsea Clinton was "sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way” for lobbying super delegates on her mother’s behalf during the presidential primaries.
“According to a source close to the situation, the Clintons called people on the board of NBC’s parent company General Electric to say, ‘Well, this is outrageous, how NBC News and MSNBC are handling this, and we need to do something about it,'" Halper writes. "Before long, GE’s chairman Jeffrey Immelt, was on the phone with Jeff Zucker, the president and CEO of NBC Universal at the time, and (former NBC News president) Steve Capus asking, ‘What the hell is going on over there? Why are my board members talking about the reporter, and why is your reporter referring to Chelsea as a prostitute?’”
The strife between Shuster and the Clintons was well documented during the 2008 campaign and a series of heated emails between Shuster and Clinton spokesperson Philippe Reines were published by POLITICO at the time.  At one point, the Clinton campaign threatened to pull out of a debate hosted by NBC News.
In the book, Halper notes that Wolfson also purposely didn’t connect Shuster to the Clintons when he wanted to personally apologize, instead telling him to email Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Wolfson then went to the press and said Shuster was refusing to apologize.
The Clinton campaign, Halper writes, “wanted to make it look like men, such as David Shuster, were beating up on the woman who could be the first female president of the U.S.”
Shuster ended up being suspended for two weeks. He was fired in 2010 after filming a pilot for CNN without MSNBC's approval. He now hosts a show on Al Jazeera America.
“Finally, [the campaign] sent a message to the media: You may like Obama more than Hillary, but you’d better watch what you say because we have the power to destroy you," Halper writes. "To deliver their message, a popular ex-president, the nation’s most famous senator, and their powerful friends bullied a relatively obscure reporter with powerless friends and spineless bosses. While they were at it, the press and public were misled about his attempts to apologize."
Halper’s book leaked last week when a man identifying himself as Robert Josef Wright sent out a blast email to media executives, editors and journalists with PDFs of all 317-pages. The book is scheduled to hit shelves on Tuesday.
Update (5:30 p.m.):
Clinton spokesperson Nick Merrill said in an email that Halper should be treated the same as "Blood Feud" author Ed Klein and "Her Way" author Jeff Gerth.
"Daniel Halper has joined the discredited and disgraced ranks of Ed Klein and Jeff Gerth, his book came and went so fast that nobody bothered to read it, and nobody will," Merrill said.

Hillary is power hungry. She's so committed to her worldview that anything becomes justifiable.
What is so hypocritical is that these is this kind of behavior would have her shrieking when done in a private business setting.

More IRS computers crashed.

Now IRS Reports EVEN MORE Computer Crashes, Doesn’t Know If Emails Still Exist

IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to “less than 20,” and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere.
The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens. (RELATED: Meet the First 7 IRS Employees Whose Computers Crashed).
“You stated at the time that document was produced to Congress, the document, the white paper in Exhibit 3[the June 13 memo], that it was accurate to the best of your knowledge.  Is it still accurate?,” a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigator asked Kane.
“There is an issue as to whether or not there is a ‑‑ that all of the backup recovery tapes were destroyed on the 6‑month retention schedule,” Kane replied.
“So some of those backup tapes may still exist?,” the investigator asked.
“I don’t know whether they are or they aren’t, but it’s an issue that’s being looked at,” Kane said.

Islamists burn 1800 year old church in Mosul

Iraq Crisis: ISIS Torches 1,800-Year-Old Church after Banishing Mosul Christians

The ISIS deadline for Christians to leave Mosul ended at the weekend, and thousands of people who follow the religion have left the city. And as the last group of Christians made their way out, the militants torched the 1,800-year-old Assyrian Christian church.
According to Al Arabiya, the church was burned down on Saturday, after the remaining Christians fled. It noted that the burning of the church was the latest event in the destruction of Christian property in Mosul.
The militants, who are on a mission to establish a Muslim state under Sharia laws, want to cleanse Iraq off Christians.
Besides the burning of the church, the ISIS militants have removed the cross from St. Ephrem's Cathedral, which was once the seat of the Syriac Orthodox archdiocese in Mosul, and have hoisted the black ISIS flag there instead. An ancient statue of Virgin Mary has also been broken, the New York Times reported.
"They killed us when they removed the cross, this is death for us," Ghazwan Ilyas, the head of the Chaldean Culture Society, told NYT. 
Similarly a video, posted on YouTube on 9 July, shows a tomb being destroyed with a sledgehammer, which according to Nineveh officials is "almost certainly" that of Prophet Jonah.
Displaced Iraqi Christians
According to BBC, thousands of Iraqi Christians have been pouring out of Mosul even since June but after the ISIS ultimatum, which asked them to convert or pay tax or leave or face death, the number of refugees fleeing the city literally doubled.
The Human Rights Watch (HRW) stated that the Mosul Christians have fled to join thousands of Shiite and other refugees in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan.

Rep. Joe Garcia: “We’ve Proved that Communism Works”

Exposing the anti Israel Jew hating pro Palestinian groups.

Terrorist supporters behind the ‘Israel must die, long live Palestine’ mobs

While frightened little school children in Israel hide under their desks during Palestinian rocket attacks, street mobs in the rest of the world are chanting “Israel must die, long live Palestine” over and over again in raucous voices growing louder.

With Israel under attack,  Palestinian protesters in Paris, London and in North American cities like Chicago and Calgary took to the streets in clockwork fashion. The protesters never have to duck from physical harm.  They count on total impunity in the democratic settings where they conduct their activism.
In Canada they rely on the support of the anti-Israel propaganda-spewing Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, supported by $1 billion a year (“less 10%” as they incessantly remind us) Canadian tax dollars and through one of his own candidates, leader of Canada’s Liberal Party Justin Trudeau. 
Well-funded by leftwing groups, Palestinian protesters borrow from Western fashionistas:
In Chicago last night it was Palestine motorcycle gangs, decked out in signature black and white keffiyehs covering their faces and carrying Palestinian flags as they moved up and down Michigan Avenue.
In Calgary the police said they laid no charges when a violent Palestinian mob advanced repeatedly on a pro-Israeli demonstration.
With Israel under intense attack by Palestinian rockets, Palestinian supporters worldwide seek to advance hatred of Israel with the coordinated chant: “Israel must die”.
The mobs chanting “Israel must die” materialized overnight.
But the mystery of their sudden worldwide appearance comes from detailed organization. 
Investigative journalist Lee Kaplan, a regular columnist with Front Page Magazine and Israel National News, did a brilliant job in exposing who is behind the “Israel must die” protests underway in North America days before they exploded on the streets.
“The Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) today exists as a consortium of campus “clubs” throughout the American and Canadian college systems which work to oppose the existence of Israel and to promote Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the Jewish state. There are at least 80 chapters of these clubs on campuses throughout the US and Canada. The SJP goes under other assorted names on some campuses. Names such as Palestine Solidarity Committee or Students for Palestinian Equal Rights are also common. In Canada, some SJP chapters have adopted the name Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA), or Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), while others use similar sounding names but advocate for the Palestinian “revolution”or resistance against the Israeli and US governments when they are perceived as allies together against “Palestinian” irredentist goals. The SJP could be said to operate on the campuses in a classic Rico Statute style of infiltration as a method of promoting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement throughout the USA and Canada via a “grass roots movement”.
Kaplan couldn’t have been more prescient in exposing the activists in Saturday’s protest in Calgary—before—an estimated 800 Hamas supporters turned out for their violent protest. 
Canadian viewers didn’t get to see Hamas in action on CBC, but little blog BC Blue did an excellent job in capturing the Calgary event.
“Media Party super-star Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has never met a microphone he didn’t like, unless of course it happens to be about something as vile and eye-blackening for his city like a massive rally in support of a terrorist organization at city hall.” (BC Blue, July 19, 2014)
Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), a University of Calgary club and Justice for Palestinians organized the Calgary protest, which began about 6 p.m.  Speakers included SPHR President Ala’a Hamdan, U of C Professor Arthur Clarke and Liberal MLA for Calgary-Skyview and federal Liberal Party candidate under Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, Garshan Kang.
Wonder how many Canadians knew that Trudeau was photographed with terrorist supporter Kang at the Calgary Stampede on July 4th?
Count on the “Israel must die, long live Palestine” chants getting louder and on street mob violence becoming more rampant:
Lee Kaplan: “The SJP (like the Muslim Students Association) is enjoying a Rico Statute-like system of invading American society through US colleges and enjoying its funding by its being from the unaware US taxpayer. While Rico has been used to curb gambling, liquor and prostitution, the same tactic is employed by the SJP as such illicit “businesses” use to serve the interests of overseas Palestinian irredentist terrorist groups. The Ba’ath Party and Muslim Brotherhood all had their starts in the colleges in the Middle East. The US and Canadian college system provides a huge market of a young upcoming generation to indoctrinate toward their goals, as well as the financial assistance to do so. Today’s SJP member goes on to graduate and become a newspaper editor, a congressman, a principal, a teacher or even a professor like Hatem Bazian, any one of whom wields influence in our society, possibly even one day being the President of the United States.
“The Ba’athists and Muslim Brotherhood later expanded their middle east control through trade unions and more and more SJP/ISM events are inviting trade unionists to attend and join them in their anti-Israel crusade. SJP is also doing outreach in churches, and some former SJP leaders lecture for CAIR on graduation or promote anti-Semitism to Christian audiences through an ISM arm called Sabeel Ecumenical Society. The Sierra Club and environmental movement have allied with the Palestinian cause by finding common ground of fighting “oppression,” and even taxi drivers in Boston support the Boycott of Israel as a sign of “unity” against “oppression” of workers. The SJP already has done long reaching and damaging effects in our educational system, but stands to do much more damage in the future.”
God bless and protect Israel.
