Obama was forced to order flags lowered in honor of Tennessee jihad victims

Leading from behind as usual. via Obama orders flags lowered to honor Tennessee victims, after criticism. Or as Pamela Geller wrote, he was shamed into it. Obama has no shame. He has no conscience. He is intentional in everything he does and does not do. Who will stop him?

President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week’s shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others.

In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, “We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”

He ordered flags flown at half-staff at the White House and “all public buildings and grounds,” as well as over military posts and naval stations and vessels — until July 25. Flags will be flown at half-staff at U.S. embassies and other overseas diplomatic offices.

The decision comes after congressional leaders ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol lowered to half-staff earlier in the day — that decision fueled questions over why the White House hadn’t yet done the same.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a veteran, earlier released a statement calling it “unconscionable” that the flags had not been lowered, as of Tuesday morning. “The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect,” he said.

Shortly afterward, the White House issued its proclamation, following similar instructions for the Capitol by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner.

 “Last week, five brave service members were murdered in a terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Out of respect for their courageous service and sacrifice to our nation, flags at the U.S. Capitol are being lowered to half-staff,” Boehner said in a statement.

Obama’s Tweeted Holiday Greeting to Muslims Before Commenting on Murder of 4 U.S. Marines…by Muslim

via White House Celebrates Muslim Holiday on Day Muhammad Murders Four Marines.

President Barack Obama sent a celebratory message to Muslims around the world on the White House Twitter account nearly two hours before his first tweet on the subject of four dead Marines killed by an Islamic gunman.

“From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!” —@POTUS to Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” the White House tweeted. This message was tweeted at 4:48 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.

A few minutes before the posting of this article, the White House tweeted a video message, shown below, calling the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a “heartbreaking circumstance.” Others might call the incident “a terrorist attack.” This message was tweeted at 6:08 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.

On Thursday afternoon, Breitbart News reported a claim by the Chattanooga Times Free Press identifying the shooter who killed four Marines in an attack on an armed forces recruiting center in Chattanooga as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. It was not clear if this was the man, or if it was his father.

“A U.S. official says the gunman in the shootings in Tennessee has been identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez,” according to the Associated Press.

CNN has also reported the shooter being identified by the FBI as Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24. He was killed at the scene.

Washington Metro Transit Authority Sued for Censoring Mohammad Cartoon

via Pamela Geller Sues WMATA for Censoring Mohammad Cartoon | American Freedom Law Center.

Today, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) for refusing to run a “Support Free Speech” advertisement that depicted the winning entry of the “Draw Mohammad Contest” recently held in Garland, Texas.  The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of the advertisement’s sponsors, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and its co-founders, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

On May 20, 2015, Geller submitted the advertisement to WMATA’s advertising agent for display on WMATA’s buses and dioramas. Geller stated that they “wish to submit the following ad to run on 20 Washington DC buses and 5 DC Dioramas including Foggy Bottom, Capitol South, Bethesda, L’Enfant Plaza, Shady Grove and Union Station (if available).” The proposed ad appears as follows:

Geller’s advertisement makes the point that the First Amendment will not yield to Sharia-adherent Islamists who want to enforce so-called blasphemy laws here in the United States, whether through threats of violence or through the actions of complicit government officials.

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented,

We apparently don’t need ISIS to destroy our freedoms; Washington bureaucrats are doing the job for them.  Unfortunately, we have come to the point in our history where we fear engaging in speech that might upset the Sharia-adherent followers of Islam.  As a consequence, government officials now allow Islamic jihadists to veto our speech.  That is un-American, and it is unconstitutional.  It will not stand on our watch.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added,

“This case is important not only from a legal perspective but from the perspective of who we are as Americans.  Are we going to allow violent Islamists to dictate what we can and cannot say in public?  If so, then we have already lost this so-called war on terror.”

Leading D.C. PR Agency for Sharia Law

via D.C. PR Agency for Sharia Law | Truth Revolt.

The Public Relations world is abuzz with the news that according to reports filed with the government, Qatar has extended its $88,500 per month contract with Levick Communications, a leading PR firm. The company was hired by the Embassy of Qatar to “bolster their relationships with the United States and non-profit organizations,” according to FARA filings.

The assignment covers strategy, research and opinion leader outreach, and reports to Qatar’s United States Ambassador Mohammed Jaham Al Kuwari.

According to the Wall Street Journal yesterday, Qatar’s image has been “battered by allegations that it mistreats migrant workers, aids terrorists and bribed its way to hosting the 2022 soccer World Cup.” As the BBC reported a few months ago, on a press trip arranged by Portland Communications, Qatar’s UK PR firm for the country’s Prime Minister, journalists were put in jail for reporting on accommodations provided to migrant workers.

Qatar funds Hamas, one of the world’s leading terror organizations, and is an outspoken supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have all recalled their ambassadors from Qatar to protest its support of terror organizations. The nation is home to the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi, as well as Hamas’ leader Khaled Mashal.

The country is ruled in part by Sharia law, and in 2013 Qatar joined a coalition of other countries in vowing to administer a “homosexual test” to visitors, in an effort to restrict gays’ entrance into the country. In certain areas of the nation’s court, a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man’s – and in some cases women witnesses are not permitted.

Levick in the United States, and Portland Communications have chosen to serve as sharia’s PR firm. As the owner of a top 20 American PR firm I agree with the CEO of the world’s largest PR firm, Richard Edelman, who said “PR is not like the law – not everyone deserves representation.”

Ronn Torossian is CEO of 5WPR, a top 20 independently owned Public Relations firm.  His best-selling book, For Immediate Release: Shape Minds, Build Brands, and Deliver Results with Game-Changing Public Relations is available on Amazon.

If Hillary Clinton makes it to White House, so will the Muslim Brotherhood

In the form of Huma Abedin. via If Hillary makes it to the White House, so will Huma Abedin | Page Six.

If the phone rings at 3 a.m. in the Hillary Clinton White House, the person answering reportedly will be Huma Abedin, her “body woman.”

Abedin was “the only official channel to Clinton over the past year” and has been “elevated to the most senior member of Clinton’s old guard,” Politico.com’s Annie Karni states.

“Huma’s influence is so pervasive, and Hillary’s dependence on her so total, that it is expected she will have her own bedroom upstairs in the White House,” a Clinton associate told OrbMagazine’s Richard Turley. “After 20 years as Hillary’s gatekeeper, no one else could screen the calls and decide who gets access as ably as she does.”

Orb predicts Clinton, in emulation of her hero Eleanor Roosevelt, will install Huma in the second-floor bedroom occupied during the FDR administration by Lorena Hickok, “the journalist who was Mrs. Roosevelt’s soul mate and intimate companion.”


 More:

“In thousands of emails released last week by the State Department, Abedin’s omnipresent role organizing Clinton’s life was clearly on display,” a Politico article posted on July 2 states.  “Former vice president Al Gore, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and even former president Bill Clinton all phoned Abedin to reach Clinton.”

Obama to host Nigeria’s sharia-committed president as 9 sentenced to death for blaspheming Mohammed

via Obama to host Nigeria’s Buhari on July 20: White House – Yahoo News.

(AFP) – US President Barack Obama will welcome his Nigerian counterpart to Washington next month, the White House announced Thursday, a symbolic show of solidarity after the country’s first ever democratic transition.

“President Obama will host Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House,” on July 20, the White House said.

The visit will mark “our support for the Nigerian people following their historic democratic elections and peaceful transfer of power,” a statement added.

Meanwhile, Nigerian court sentences nine to death for blasphemy

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) – Nine people have been sentenced to death in northern Nigeria after being found guilty of blasphemy, a court clerk and the head of the religious police told AFP on Friday.

The Upper Sharia Court in the city of Kano handed down death sentences to a Sufi Muslim cleric and eight of his followers for remarks they made about the Prophet Mohammed last month.

The comments, made during a religious ceremony, sparked anger and violence in the city.

Court clerk Alhaji Nasuru said the nine, including one woman, were “sentenced to death in accordance with sections 110 and 302 of the Sharia penal code.”

The head of the Kano state Sharia (Islamic law) police, known locally as the Hisbah, welcomed the verdicts.

“We are happy the Sharia court handed the death sentences to the nine people who made the blasphemous statements against the Holy Prophet,” said Aminu Daurawa.

The trial was held in secret to avoid violence, after crowds set fire to a section of the Sharia court on the defendants’ first appearance on May 22.

The judgment still has to be approved by Kano governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, added Daurawa, who warned the sentence should remind Muslims that blasphemy attracts the ultimate penalty.

He also said the risk of violence was high if the nine were released.

“The concern is mobs would take extrajudicial action if these convicts are for whatever reason released because they would certainly kill them when they see them on the streets,” he said.

There was no immediate word on whether the nine would appeal.

Sharia courts in northern Nigeria have handed down death sentences for adultery, murder and homosexuality since they were set up in the early 2000s. But to date, no executions have been carried out.

Twelve states in the mainly Muslim north have the courts, which run parallel to state and federal justice system.


Obama’s boy has clearly stated his desire for sharia in Nigeria:

“I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”

Update: Nigerian President thanks Kerry, Obama for getting him elected. He also thanked Obama and U.S. technology for permanent voter ID cards!
