Donald Trump says Shut Down the Government to Defund Planned Parenthood


By /     

Don’t hate me for this… but I don’t trust Donald Trump.


Trump was a liberal just a few short years ago. Now, he says he is a conservative but he has no explanation for how or why his mind changed on a host of issues. He used to be for higher taxation, he used to be pro-choice, he has shifted on gay marriage and has in the past agreed with so called “hate crime” laws, he’s a protectionist on trade, he’s been for greater gun control, he once called for universal healthcare and protecting Medicare and Medicaid, and he’s held other similarly liberal positions.

Eagle Rising: What are they Hiding? Military Bans Media from Jade Helm 15 Exercises!


By /

So much for the First Amendment under imam Barack Hussein Obama!

Restricting freedom of the press seems to be the norm for this administration and once again, they have demonstrated an unwillingness to be transparent with the American people on what is presumably a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act as Jade Helm 15 begins. Yet, the military is not allowing media access to Jade Helm 15 military exercises taking place on American streets.
The Washington Post reports:
Jade Helm 15, the controversial Special Operations exercise that spawned a wave of conspiracy theories about a government takeover, will open next week without any media allowed to observe it, a military spokesman said.

Embedded reporters won't be permitted at any point during the exercise, in which military officials say that secretive Special Operations troops will maneuver through private and publicly owned land in several southern states. Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a spokesman for Army Special Operations Command, said his organization is considering allowing a small number of journalists to view selected portions of the exercise later this summer, but nothing is finalized.
The common response is, "Well, we don't want our enemies to know what we're doing." OK, fine. Then why do we embed any reporters in actual warfare? Ever asked yourself that question? Why must we be so secretive about this particular 3-month long exercise that will take place on American streets, allegedly in preparation for war in the Middle East? Does that make any sense?
Lastoria issued a statement to the Washington Post on Wednesday, which read:
"All requests from the media for interviews and coverage of U.S. Army Special Operations Command personnel, organizations and events are assessed for feasibility and granted when and where possible. We are dedicated to communicating with the public, while balancing that against the application of operations security and other factors."


People have stood by the Jade Helm exercises as a "defensive measure" and such. The Rand Corporation even attempts to line up a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act with such use of the American military. According to a document on their site titled Overview of the Posse Comitatus Act, we read: Pursuant to the presidential power to quell domestic violence, federal troops are expressly exempt from the prohibitions of Posse Comitatus Act, and this exemption applies equally to active-duty military and federalized National Guard troops.
So, what's wrong with that? After all, isn't Jade Helm being promoted as dealing with dissidents and insurrection? It is, but the power to put down insurrection does not lie with the US military. It lies with the militia (the People).
Article 1, Section 8 reads that part of Congress' enumerated powers are to:
To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

Some will call this the National Guard, but that is not true at all. In fact, we know from history that Congress could constitutionally mandate guns and ammunition purchases for the militia for defense and that consisted of the men of the states.

Forget Syria, Iraq and Ukraine…THIS is where WWIII starts‏


Dear Concerned American,
This is a quickly developing story.

Should the rise of conflicts across the Middle East and Ukraine serve as a warning sign that something much more dangerous is approaching?

According to Jim Rickards, the CIA's Asymmetric Warfare Advisor, the answer is yes.

In a startling interview he reveals that all 16 U.S. Intelligence Agencies have begun to prepare for World War III.

Making matters worse, his colleagues believe it could begin within the next 6 months.

However, the ground zero location for this global conflict is what makes his interview a must-see for every American.

Take a few moments to watch it below and decide for yourself.

Eagle Rising: Nobel Prize Winning Scientist: Obama is “Dead Wrong” on Global Warming!




By /

Dr. Ivar Giaever won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1973, then in 2008 he joined with over 70 other Nobel laureates in endorsing Obama for President, a decision he may now regret. Speaking at a Global Warming forum last week, Giaever denounced global warming fanaticism and mocked President Obama for claiming that climate change is the gravest threat we face today, saying the very idea was “ridiculous” before adding, “I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.” 
“I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem.” 
Dr. Giaver resigned from the American Physical Society in 2011 after they released the following statement.
“The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.”

In his speech he discussed the following:
I resigned from the society in 2011. First: nothing in science is incontrovertible. Second: the “measured” average temperature increase in 100 years or so, is 0.8 Kelvin. Third: since the Physical Society claim it has become warmer, why is everything better than before? Forth: the maximum average temperature ever measured was in 1998, 17 years ago. When will we stop wasting money on alternative energy?

Eagle Rising: This One Image Shows What’s Wrong with Today’s Media



By /
On Fox Business’s Cavuto the other day, host Neil Cavuto showed a graphic that kind of sums up everything that is wrong with the mainstream media today.
Over the years, we seem to have gone through a kind of metamorphosis in media – first they said that their “personal” biases didn’t effect their reporting. Then some of the media began to admit that sure, most of us are biased, but we try real hard to be fair. Now, they usually just laugh us detractors off and continue pretending that they’re doing a great job. (David Gregory anyone?)
Here is what Cavuto showed that should enlighten us all…

Eagle Rising: Parents of Fallen SEAL Write Letter Demanding President Obama's Resignation‏




By Onan Coca /

The parents of fallen hero Aaron Carson Vaughn, a member of SEAL Team VI, have written a letter demanding the resignation of President Obama.
The letter clearly outlines the President’s failings and draws attention to our nations’ need for steady and principled leadership.
The Vaughn’s have our ear – the question is will President Obama be listening?


Letter from the parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn of SEAL Team I: Please resign, Mr. President

Billy and Karen Vaughn

After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading by ISIS of freelance war correspondent James Foley, I have been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace.

My offering was my only son — Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011.

Many times over the past three years, I have been asked what drove my son to choose his particular career. What made him want to be a Navy SEAL? My answer is simple.
Aaron Vaughn was a man who possessed the courage to acknowledge evil. And evil, once truly acknowledged, demands response. Perhaps this is why so few are willing to look it in the eye. It is much simpler — much safer — to look the other way.
That is, unless you are the leader of the Free World.

As Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof — Mr. President, cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security — but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it.


Please vacate the people’s house and allow a man or woman of courage and substance to seize the reigns of this out-of-control thug-fest and regain the balance we, America, have provided throughout our great history.

Thanks to your “leadership” from whatever multi-million dollar vacation you happen to be on at any given moment, the world is in chaos. What’s been gained, you’ve lost. What’s been lost, you’ve decimated. You’ve demolished our ability to hold the trust of allies. You’ve made a mockery of the title “President.” And you’ve betrayed the nation for which my son and over 1.3 million others have sacrificed their very lives.

But this should come as no surprise, since your wife uttered a vile statement on Feb. 18, 2008, during the primary campaign — one that speaks volumes of your true convictions. “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country,” she said.

I am sure my deceased son thanks you for that, Mrs. Obama. Oh, and you’re welcome.

Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such despair and such growing fear that the world’s last best hope, America, has finally been dismantled. Perhaps the better word is transformed — fundamentally transformed. Come to think of it, it’s become difficult — if not impossible — to believe things haven’t gone exactly as you planned, Mr. President.

Amazingly, in five short years, your administration has lurched from one disaster to another. You spearheaded the ambitious rush to end the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan — with no plan on how to do so effectively. Also, the release of “the Taliban five” in exchange for one American — without consulting Congress — is also on your shoulders.

You have been at the helm during unprecedented national security leaks — including, but not limited to the outing of SEAL Team VI on the Bin Laden raid, the outing of the Pakistani doctor who provided the intelligence for that raid, the outing of Afghanistan’s CIA station chief, and the outing of your personal “kill list” to make you look tough. In addition, 75 percent of American deaths in Afghanistan and 83 percent of Americans-wounded-in-action have occurred on your watch, according to icasualties.org.

And now, we have this recent, heinous event: the beheading of an American citizen by a barbaric organization you foolishly referred to as “the JV team” in your statements to the New Yorker magazine in January.

You, sir, are the JV team. It’s time for you to step down and allow a true leader to restore our honor and protect our sons and daughters.

America has always been exceptional. And she will be again. You, Mr. President, are a bump in our road.

Billy & Karen Vaughn are Gold Star parents of Special Operations Chief (SEAL) Aaron Vaughn, KIA 6 Aug 2011. Billy is the author of Betrayed: The Shocking True Story of Extortion 17. Read more at http://www.forourson.us.

Eagle Rising: If Possible - The VA Scandal Just Got Worse



By
I’m not sure it’s possible that a scandal where the government allows our heroes to die without ever receiving care, then covers up those deaths as if they never happened… can get any worse. But if it can, it just did.
The New York Times is reporting that corruption, backlog and heartlessness at the VA go back much longer than the government first let on.
Staff members at dozens of Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country have objected for years to falsified patient appointment schedules and other improper practices, only to be rebuffed, disciplined or even fired after speaking up, according to interviews with current and former staff members and internal documents.
The growing V.A. scandal over long patient wait times and fake scheduling books is emboldening hundreds of employees to go to federal watchdogs, unions, lawmakers and outside whistle-blower groups to report continuing problems, officials for those various groups said.
In interviews with The New York Times, a half-dozen current and former staff members — four doctors, a nurse and an office manager in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Alaska — said they faced retaliation for reporting systemic problems. Their accounts, some corroborated by internal documents, portray a culture of silence and intimidation within the department and echo experiences detailed by other V.A. personnel in court filings, government investigations and congressional testimony, much of it largely unnoticed until now.
VA comic2The department has a history of retaliating against whistle-blowers, which Sloan D. Gibson, the acting V.A. secretary, acknowledged this month at a news conference in San Antonio. “I understand that we’ve got a cultural issue there, and we’re going to deal with that cultural issue,” said Mr. Gibson, who replaced Eric K. Shinseki after Mr. Shinseki resigned over the scandal last month. Punishing whistle-blowers is “absolutely unacceptable,” Mr. Gibson said.
The federal Office of Special Counsel, which investigates whistle-blower complaints, is examining 37 claims of retaliation by V.A. employees in 19 states, and recently persuaded the V.A. to drop the disciplining of three staff members who had spoken out. 
The Times article also says that thus far, the pogrom against whistleblowers goes back at least 7 years!
This is simply more proof of how the government works.
Whether it’s the IRS, the NSA, the Justice Department, the EPA, the BLM, or the VA, government agencies are heavy-handed and often without oversight. The government is just too BIG. There is no way to monitor all of the horrible mismanagement and malfeasance that happens among these agencies – which is a prime example of why socialism/communism is always full of corruption and waste. It is inefficient, and when dealing with people, simple and unmeant inefficiency very quickly becomes destructive evil.
So, the VA has known about these problems for years and done nothing to solve them. In fact, instead of dealing with the issues, they’ve instead persecuted the people trying to fix things, and just swept the mess under the rug.
Sounds just like our government.
The folks at Reason have put together a brilliant music video that succinctly explains the entire VA scandal and throws in a little Bowe Bergdahl just for fun.

Remy: God Bless the USA (VA Scandal Edition)

 



When we heard the wait times on our list
were so long that patients died
We said "This is government-run healthcare"
"So we're gonna do what's right"

We're gonna grab a piece of paper
and we'll make a second list
We'll just say that wait times aren't that long
and that no deadlines were missed
and when people die we'll cross them off
and pretend they don't exist
cuz there ain't no doubt we can't be fired
God bless the government


Our government sucks. Let’s get to work on getting a new one.

Eagle Rising: Conservative Destroys Fox News’ Juan Williams and Unmasks the Common Core

By
 Juan Williams is a liberal. He may work for Fox News (and be hated by other liberals because of it) but he is a down the line, mainstream liberal. Williams, like most liberals in the media, has been stumping for the Common Core since its inception and is still a fan of the massive government takeover, even as we see it failing around the country. Recently on Fox News he had the misfortune of running into the buzz saw that is the brilliant George Will – and Will set him straight on the Common Core.
Listen closely to Will’s argument because it is damning… and it is 100% accurate.

Eagle Rising: Liberal Ideology is Hateful and Borderline Sociopathic

By

Sheriff David A. Clarke

Sheriff David A. Clarke has become a favorite of ours here at Eagle Rising over the last year because of his stances on crime and the 2nd Amendment. He has caused quite a stir in his home state of Wisconsin for suggesting that citizens take the prerogative to defend themselves, because the job of police is to investigate crime, not stop it. He even earned some liberal ire by appearing at CPAC this year to discuss how more legal guns among law abiding citizens would mean less crime in a community. 

CPAC 2014 - More Guns, Less Crime: Law Enforcement is Embracing a Well-Armed Civilian Population

 


 Well, Sheriff Clarke is earning our admiration in a whole new way now with his perspective on education in the inner city. He recently took to the pages of the Washington Times   to excoriate liberals for their racist and harmful views on how minority groups should be treated differently from white communities.
The latest attempt by liberals to help black people is underway in our K-12 urban public schools.
These do-gooders are now defining down socially acceptable behavior for black students in school. Bad behavior is being excused and attempts to hold black kids accountable by enforcing codes of conduct are called racist.
Having a sense of discipline has always been considered a virtue, a redeeming quality, but now its roots are claimed to lie in racism.
White liberal elites have chimed in about school codes of conduct.
