    I haven’t read the story yet, but I’ve heard that Muslims in England took out a machete and cut a soldier to pieces while yelling “Allah Akbar” in an open square in England.

    President Obama now wants to bring those Muslims to America and put them on his Secret Service payroll.

    And it took the UK police Department 20 minutes to locate police with guns before they could deal with the two Muslims . There is a Video of one of the Muslims talking to a guy with a Camera that video taped the whole thing.
    its sickening.

    ‘Soldier beheaded’ in ‘Islamist terror attack’ oustide barracks in Woolwich

    Two suspected terrorists were shot by armed police after attacking a pedestrian, believed to be a soldier, with a machete-style knife close to military barracks in an ‘Islamist attack’.

    Local MP Nick Raynsford said he had been told the man attacked in the street was a soldier serving at the Royal Artillery Barracks near the attack.
    Mr Raynsford said the soldier had been returning to the barracks after a day out when he was attacked.

    London Ambulance Service said one man, believed to be the victim of the machete attack, had died in the incident and two others were injured, one seriously.

    Several witnesses described seeing a “beheading” while another described seeing a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt being attacked with a machete-style knife and dumped.

    Prime Minister David Cameron called a meeting of the Government’s Cobra crisis committee, describing the incident as “truly shocking”.
    Cobra meetings are crisis response committees set up to coordinate the actions of different agencies, including the security services, police and local authorities.

    The BBC reported sources had told them the men were shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they carried out the attack and had filmed carrying it out.

    One witness, called James, told LBC radio: “We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers, they were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s, they were hacking at this poor guy, we thought they were trying to remove organs from him”

    “These two guys were crazed, they were not there, they were just animals. They then dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.

    “They took 20 minutes to arrive, the police – the armed response.

    He added: “There was only a few people at first then traffic began to build up because people were getting out of their cars to shout at them they were taking no notice, they were standing there, I think they were proud of what they were doing.

    “When they dumped the body in the road, these two black guys had the opportunity to hurt other people if they wanted to because there were brave women with the dead guy on the floor, they were shielding and covering him. The attackers with the knives were standing over these women.

    “The guy with the gun, the tall guy with the beanie cap on, even a bus had pulled up – he was going over to the bus and asking people to take his photo.”

    It gets even more graphic

    AWKWARD: FORMER IRS HEAD SAYS HE ‘REALLY CAN’T RECITE THE CONSTITUTION’ WHEN PRESSED BY GOP REP.

    Things got awkward during the House Oversight Committee’s second IRS hearing on Wednesday when Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI), while seemingly making a larger point, couldn’t get former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman to acknowledge certain amendments to the Constitution.

    After confirming that the IRS requires ethics training, Bentivolio was trying to figure out if the IRS required training on the Constitution. He may have got his answer despite Shulman’s response saying he couldn’t answer that.

    “Did you study the Constitution?” Bentivolio asked.

    “I went to law school,” Shulman responded.

    “You went to law school. Did you study the Constitution?”

    “I believe I took Constitutional law, but I’m not prepared to take an exam at this time,” Shulman said with a chuckle. “Meaning I’ll answer any of your question but I can’t promise that I’m an expert.”

    “Well, you know the First, Second Amendment and one of my favorites, the 19th, right? You know those?” Bentivolio asked.

    “Excuse me,” a seemingly confused Shulman responded.

    “You know those amendments. The Constitutional amendments,” Bentivolio said matter of factly. “You know the First, you know the Second, and you know the 19th.”

    “I don’t necessarily have the Constitution memorized, sir.”

    “Ok, well, they’re pretty general in what each one is. Like the First Amendment is the freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances. First Amendment, right?”

    “I really can’t recite the Constitution, sir,” Shulman concluded.

    CAN’T BECAUSE HE ISN’T SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW IT….or CAN’T BECAUSE OBAMA ORDERED HIM NOT TO????

    Lerner made a political statement today meant for the Nightly News. She may have hung herself by doing it but she is a true believer. She may be willing to fall on her sword to protect O. and her cause. The elimination of Christians as a political force.

    She is the norm in the Obama Ad.

    Democrats fret President Obama’s scandals will hurt them in 2014

    President Obama isn’t the only one whose fortunes are on the line in the face of a trio of explosive political scandals that are consuming Washington.

    The Justice Department’s monitoring of reporters, the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups and the White House’s handling of the Sept. 11 Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack could also haunt Obama’s fellow Democrats, many of whom are already facing headwinds in next year’s midterm elections.

    With Republicans — and much of the public — convinced the controversies will linger into 2014, some Democrats a year and a half ahead of the election are already talking about the electoral consequences they will face when voters head to the ballot box.

    “We haven’t exactly been emboldened by the White House’s response,” a senior aide to a Democratic House member told The Washington Examiner. “Could the Republicans overplay their hand? Absolutely. But if the White House doesn’t clean this up, it’ll just linger and linger — to our detriment.”

    “It certainly doesn’t help,” quipped a Democratic Senate official.

    The White House has been unable to convince voters that the controversies are mere sideshows.

    A new Rasmussen poll found that most respondents — 55 percent — believe the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups and the response to the Benghazi terrorist strike will remain important news stories in 2014.

    And Republicans are framing the events as symptomatic of chronic abuses in the federal government, a clarion call sure to play well with a GOP base seething from defeat in the 2012 presidential election. With Obama no longer at the top of the ticket, any developments that sap enthusiasm from loyal Democrats could spell disaster for the president’s bid to control both chambers of Congress during his last two years in office.

    The president has not been coy about the importance of winning back the House, a development that could make it easier to close deals on immigration reform and greater gun control, among other issues on his agenda.

    In the short term, Obama’s top surrogates are dismissing Republican attacks as “fishing expeditions.” White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday went so far as to compare the GOP’s current questioning to the fringe Birther movement’s assertions that the president wasn’t born in the United States.

    You know, we could go down the list of questions — we could say, what about the president’s birth certificate?” a frustrated Carney told reporters. “Was that legitimate?”

    Despite the White House’s continual defensive posture, some Republicans warned the GOP not to get too giddy about its newfound political opportunities.

    “Just because there’s a scandal doesn’t mean you’ve won,” said Republican pollster David Winston, pointing to 1998, when Republicans lost House seats despite President Clinton’s self-inflicted woes. “The other side is embroiled in putting out fires. It presents a clear opportunity to define the policy debate — the question is, what do you do with that opportunity?”

    House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, vowed Tuesday to keep the pressure on Obama.

    “We have a responsibility to the American people to provide oversight of the executive branch,” Boehner said on the House floor. “And I think Americans understand, and our colleagues understand, that the American people deserve the truth.”

    And the liberals blamed Romney for the same thing

    Pritzker’s offshore holdings cloud Commerce bid

    During his campaign for re-election, President Obama and his team accused Mitt Romney of “betting against America” for investing in offshore accounts that shielded the Republican challenger from paying U.S. taxes.

    If Mr. Romney “bet against America,” so did the family of Penny Pritzker, Mr. Obama’s nominee for Commerce secretary, whose confirmation hearing will be held Thursday in the Senate Commerce Committee.

    On financial disclosure forms, Ms. Pritzker revealed that she received $53.6 million in income in 2012 from a trust in the Bahamas. The income is described as being paid for “consulting services.”

    A spokeswoman for the nominee said Ms. Pritzker paid taxes on the compensation before the April 15 deadline “at ordinary income rates,” although she wouldn’t specify the rate. The personal fortune of Ms. Pritzker, whose family owns the Hyatt hotel chain, among other commercial and financial interests, and who served as finance chair of Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008, is estimated at more than $1.85 billion.

    The offshore issue is sure to bring questions from congressional Republicans, especially on the heels of a Senate hearing into tax avoidance by Apple Inc., whose chief executive defended the company’s actions this week by protesting, “We don’t stash our money on some Caribbean island.”

    The Pritzker family has placed some of its money offshore for decades. Some lawmakers accuse Mr. Obama of hypocrisy for slamming Mr. Romney over the tax havens and then appointing two second-term Cabinet nominees who have held such investments (Treasury Secretary Jack Lew also had an account in the Cayman Islands).

    “The president should have the same standard for his opponents as he does for his friends and financial backers,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.

    Campaign issue

    Mr. Obama made an issue of offshore tax havens even before his reelection campaign.

    In 2009, he proposed closing tax loopholes for companies with overseas subsidiaries, declaring, “The way to make American businesses competitive is not to let some citizens and businesses dodge their responsibility, while ordinary Americans pick up the slack.”

    One of the president’s campaign ads in 2012 questioned Mr. Romney’s patriotism by noting that he had money in “tax havens like Bermuda … and the Cayman Islands.”

    Ms. Pritzker’s offshore family trust is legal, and a spokeswoman for the nominee said the trust set up by her grandfather when Ms. Pritzker was a child.

    “She does not control these trusts and has not received and has no legal right to require any distributions from these trusts,” said the spokeswoman, Susan Anderson. “The only income Penny has received from these trusts is for the services she performed over the last 10 years to restructure the Pritzker family trusts’ holdings, and she has paid taxes on that income.”
    The statement from Ms. Pritzker’s office said the family business went through a “restructuring of holdings” that ended in November 2012, resulting in a “separation of these assets among 11 individual family lines.”
    “Now that the restructuring is complete, Penny requested that the trustee of her and her immediate family’s trusts initiate a legal process which would allow a U.S. trustee to be appointed in order to allow these trusts to become U.S. based trusts,” the statement said. “She has made this request because it would permit all the trusts for the benefit of her and her immediate family to be more effectively managed and efficiently administered. She has no control over this legal process, its timing or outcome.”
    A spokesman for the White House wouldn’t address Republicans’ accusations of hypocrisy against Mr. Obama, but said Ms. Pritzker is well qualified for the Commerce post.

    @Chriscee

    Of course Bev….Obama is a protector or Muslims and his brotherhood. We’ve known it from day 1.

    obama will go to any and all lengths to protect his muslim buddies…including killing Americans for them

    ______________________________________________

    Obama says it right in his book that he’d never turn his back on the Muslims. How any Jewish person ever voted for Obama is beyond me. And I have Jewish friends. They WERE staunch Obama supporters. I asked them that. They ignored that statement about Obama saying he wouldn’t turn his back on Muslims.
