Marc Rich died this week, while still in exile in Geneva. He was the notorious tax evader and insider financial dealer who escaped justice in the waning hours of President Clinton’s presidency. This is a partial story on how a convicted felon, hiding from the law, got on the presidential list to be pardoned. Justin Peters of Slate.com has the story and it links current AG Eric Holder as the facilitator.

There’s an anonymous letter circulating on the internet (directed at conservatives) claiming that dozens of Muslim terrorist training camps exist in the US, just waiting to strike. Here’s a typical citation:


Two, possibly three terrorist camps have been discovered in Dover, Paris, and Shelbyville, TN. The three camps in TN are intertwined with a string of other camps, some say as many as 37, scattered throughout rural America, maybe more. Muslims of America claim 107 business entities or charities in America according to the IRS, which leads one to think many more terrorist camps are on the way or are yet to be discovered. The camps have a common theme. They are linked to one person, one terrorist group. They are a tight network tied to Sheikh Mubarrack Al Gilani, Muslims of America and Jamaat Al Fuqra. Gilani has known associations to Al-Qaeda.

The letter then goes on to list dozens of other training camps in various states of the union. I’ve got a problem with this story on several counts, even though it is being passed along by well-meaning law enforcement types.

1) There is no name attached. That’s always a sign of bogus claims that no one wants to take credit for what is written. There’s nothing here that one ought to be ashamed of if true, so why not admit who wrote it? This is the M.O. of government paid disinformation experts who exploit conservative gullibility.

2) If true, this information could only come from government sources. No private person could have come up with this. And, if government knows about all this, why aren’t they doing anything about it?

3) Suspiciously, the report lacks any specific location details that would allow skeptics to track down and verify these claims independently.

4) If they exist, what are they waiting for? If the camps are not government controlled, why aren’t they already doing something to attack America? And, by the way, it doesn’t take a training camp to learn how to make bombs or do staged beheadings—that’s done much more easily in run-down urban warehouses in large cities.

In short, this is more terror propaganda to stir up support for the phony war against terror and the claim that radical Islam is our greatest threat. It isn’t. It’s a diversion to keep you focused on terror rather than the Russia/China war that is coming.

Alessandro Bruno wrote an excellent background piece in the Political Monitor on the political infighting in Yemen that has made it so unstable for many years. I’ll summarize briefly with excerpts: 


The Good News About Nuclear Destruction

By Todd Savage | Sunday, February 22, 2015

( By Shane Connor ) What possible 'good news' could there ever be about nuclear destruction coming to America, whether it is Dirty Bombs, Terrorist Nukes, or ICBM's from afar? In a word, they are all survivable for the vast majority of American families, IF they know what to do beforehand and have made even the most modest of preparations.

In a dramatic and legally correct ruling a federal district judge this week delayed implementation of Obama’s amnesty decree and engendered the wrath of the entire pro-amnesty lobby from the government of Mexico to leftist loyalists like Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL). Gutierrez brazenly claims that this will be overturned. I’m sure it will, which is why the Obama Administration pretended to calmly accept this and wait for this decision to be overturned higher up. This is another issue where globalists won’t take no for an answer. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times has the story.


A federal judge late Monday halted President Obama’s deportation amnesty, ruling he overstepped his powers in trying to grant legal status and “benefits and privileges” to millions of illegal immigrants, in a stunning decision that chides the president and throws the White House’s plans into disarray just a day before applications were to be accepted.


The White House said it will appeal Judge Andrew S. Hanen’s decision, but it’s unclear whether the case could reach the circuit court in New Orleans or even the Supreme Court before Wednesday, which is when the Homeland Security Department had planned to begin accepting the first applications under the new amnesty.


“The DHS was not given any ‘discretion by law’ to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the DHS itself labels as ‘legal presence,’ ” Judge Hanen wrote in issuing an injunction. “In fact, the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed. The DHS has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions. These changes go beyond mere enforcement or even non-enforcement of this nation’s immigration scheme.”

Tony Lee of Breitbart News covers the militant reaction of the pro-amnesty crowd.


The morning after a federal judge halted President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) proclaimed that amnesty advocates will not be deterred. Gutierrez said he will continue to tell illegal immigrants to prepare to sign up for Obama’s executive amnesty.


“We may be delayed, but we will not be deterred,” Gutierrez said in a Tuesday statement. Despite Hanen’s ruling, Gutierrez claimed that “there is no good legal case to be made by the President’s opponents and legislation the hardliners are putting forward in Washington is going nowhere.” He said that “politically and practically the idea of deporting or driving out 11 million people and their families is absurd” and predicted that the effort to defund Obama’s executive amnesty “is going to backfire big-time on Republican hardliners.”

I think he may be right about the backlash, but not because taking the hard line is unpopular. The conservative base in America is tired of the constant flow of illegals as well as the Democratic policies which offer ever-increasing incentives to draw illegals to this country. The real backlash will come from House Speaker Boehner’s plan to hold funding for the DHS hostage and then sabotage the result, just as he did during the government shutdown. Boehner will allow himself to become the media whipping boy and not doing anything to effectively counter the propaganda. So in the name of making us “more vulnerable to terror” because of stopping DHS funding, the Republicans will once again be set up to take the blame rather than Obama.

Take note of the excellent reasoning of Judge Hanen for issuing the injunction:


Gutierrez, who is on a nationwide executive amnesty tour, has said that it would be tougher to repeal Obama’s executive amnesty if millions of illegal immigrants sign up for it. Federal Judge Andrew Hanen noted in his opinion that without an injunction, it would be “virtually impossible” to put Obama’s executive amnesty genie back in the bottle.”


“The court agrees that, without a preliminary injunction, any subsequent ruling that finds DAPA unlawful after it is implemented would result in the States facing the substantially difficult–if not impossible–task of retracting any benefits licenses already provided to DAPA beneficiaries,” Hanen wrote. “This genie would be impossible to put back in the bottle.”

As one of the commentaries rightly said,


This is not about "Dreamers," folks---its about 20 million new democrat voters-----who we cannot afford!

According to Article 1 Section 1 and Article 2 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, ALL Legislative power is held by Congress. Amnesty is a clear violation of the US Constitution. Obama is clearly making law, not simply failing to enforce it—which is also a violation of his oath to “faithfully execute.”

In anticipation of this injunction being overturned, pro-amnesty legislators like Gutierrez (D-IL) and Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) are telling illegals to “get ready” and prepare to apply for applications for protection from deportation soon as reported by NBC News.

Steel is extremely versatile due to both its strength and flexibility. With a wide variety of alloys and heat treatments, steel can be made hard enough for tools and bullet proof plates, or soft enough to be malleable. While steel is by far the strongest and easiest metal to find, in requires requires more than just hardened hand tools to form and manipulate. Fortunately, every city has Metal-Mart type suppliers that can provide you with ready-formed steel in shapes that are most useful to you: steel pipe, flat strips, “C” shaped channels, plates, rods, square tubing or angles—all in various thickness and sizes.

One day the world will look back and wonder how Ukraine slipped back into Russia’s grasp. The events of this week are a sad commentary on US and EU permissiveness as Russia continues its barely-masked invasion of Ukraine while the presumed pro-western Poroshenko and his generals sabotage the Ukrainian armed resistance. The latest peace agreement is turning out to be as worthless as the Minsk agreement last September. Russian forces quickly showed bad faith by moving rapidly forward in the days preceding implementation to grab as much territory as possible. According to Ukrainian sources, Russian-backed armies were under orders to take over complete control of Debaltseve and Mariupol prior to Sunday. This is how the Ukrainian people are losing their sovereignty—one strategic city at a time—and no one has the courage to stand up to Putin’s blatant aggression.
