Jefferson read his Koran – to understand his enemies

Resist Tyranny:

We’re re-blogging this because of Barack Hussein Obama’s continued re-writing of history. There were no muslims – and precious little Islamic thought – present during our founding.

Originally posted on Resist Tyranny:

President Barack Hussein Obama displayed his affinity for Islam – and complete ignorance of US history – while observing Ramadan in August 2012. President Bill Clinton began the “tradition” of hosting a White House iftar dinner. Both Presidents George W. Bush and Obama have continued the annual pagan observance.

In prepared remarks, Obama incorrectly pontificated:

As I’ve noted before, Thomas Jefferson once held a sunset dinner here with an envoy from Tunisia – perhaps the first Iftar at the White House*, more than 200 years ago. And some of you, as you arrived tonight, may have seen our special display, courtesy of our friends at the Library of Congressthe Koran that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. And that’s a reminder, along with the generations of patriotic Muslims in America, that Islam – like so many faiths – is part of our national story.

Obama’s commentary is nothing…

Photos show border militias moving across Texas

militiaPhotos showing dozens of members of the militia groups on the U.S.-Mexico border carrying semi-automatic rifles and wearing masks, camouflage and tactical gear provide one of the first glimpses into the group’s activities on the border.

Members of the militia groups, who say they have 10 active “teams” along the state’s southern border, are seen at campsites, walking along the Rio Grande River, pointing rifles and pistols out of frame and flipping off the camera in the photos obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.

A spokesperson for the group provided the photos under the condition that members’ faces be blurred because of fear of being identified by “cartel and gang members.”

Kids don’t want Michelle Obama’s lunches; sales down in 49 states

MichelleObamaSchool cafeteria workers, already frustrated that kids don’t like menus ordered by Michelle Obama and the Agriculture Department, slapped as “offensive” the first lady’s latest criticism that some school districts have given up and are just lazily serving junk food.

“It is offensive to America’s frontline cafeteria professionals to say that those who struggle with the national decline in school lunch participation have simply said, ‘Well, the kids like junk food, so let’s just give ‘em junk food,’ ” said Patti Montague, chief executive of the School Nutrition Association, in a letter to the White House.

“Our members are not offering their students junk food,” she added in the letter, the latest by the group to get the first lady’s attention to the huge drop in school lunch participation due to the awful taste and higher costs of the foods now pushed by Obama.

77% want illegals sent home; 81% say it’s serious

illegalsA huge majority of Americans, 81 percent, believe the new immigration crisis of unaccompanied children streaming over the U.S.-Mexico border is serious, and almost as many want them gone – some even if it’s not safe to return, according to a new poll.

In an Economist/YouGov.com survey, however, the public isn’t heartless in how they view the plight of the children, with 66 percent expressing sympathy for their situation that drove them north, where U.S. Border Patrol officers are catching the new arrivals for immigration processing.

But while there is an understanding among many Americans that some of the children are fleeing violence in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, a majority, 57 percent, believe the illegal immigrants are coming to America because they believe “that the U.S. government is or will be granting amnesty to undocumented immigrant children,” said the new poll.
