The Number of Obama Supporters Who Have Never Heard of the 9/11 Benghazi Attack Will Terrify You

Fed up Christians take public stand

This Saturday – just 17 days before Election Day – American voters of all faiths are taking to the streets in the name of religious freedom and in protest of the Obamacare contraception mandate.

On Oct. 20 at 12 noon, more than 100 “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” rallies sponsored by the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Coalition will take place in cities coast to coast, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Minneapolis and others.

“I think the Obama administration really awakened a sleeping giant with this thing,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League and co-director of the Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies.

According to the group, tens of thousands of citizens are expected to rally in peaceful, non-partisan demonstrations at local federal buildings, court houses, congressional offices, city parks and churches. The organization notes that at least 300 “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” rallies took place in March and June, drawing more than 125,000 participants.

“People have been feeling like their faith is being treated shoddily by the government, by much of the culture and by the mainstream media,” Scheidler told WND before the event. “They’ve been feeling it for years, in terms of being marginalized and being made to feel their faith is unwelcome in the public square.”

Britain’s High-Tech Thought Police

What country has just sentenced a man to eight months in prison for wearing an anti-police t-shirt, and another man to three months in prison for telling an “abhorrent” joke on Facebook? Iran, perhaps? China? No, it’s Britain.

Something has gone horribly wrong in Britain in recent years. The birthplace of John Milton (“Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience”), and John Stuart Mill (“Every man who says frankly and fully what he thinks is so far doing a public service”), has become a cesspit of censoriousness.

The frequency with which the police and legal system now throw into jail anyone judged to have committed a “speech crime” is alarming.

On October 11, Barry Thew, a 39-year-old man from Manchester, was sentenced to eight months in jail—eight months!—for the crime of wearing a t-shirt that said, “One less pig — perfect justice”.

He donned the t-shirt just a few hours after two police officers were shot dead in Manchester, on September 18. Some members of the public took offence at his flagrantly police-baiting tee, complained to the cops about him, and before you could say “Fuck da police” Thew was being found guilty of committing a Section 4A offence under England’s Public Order laws—that is, he “displayed writing or other visible representation with the intention of causing harassment, alarm or distress.”

Twitter Explodes With Criticism of Obama After He Called Four Dead Americans in Benghazi ‘Not Optimal’

Almost immediately after pool reports indicated that President Barack Obama called the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi “not optimal” during the taping of “The Daily Show,” social media exploded with outrage over the president’s remarks.

The backlash was almost instantaneous — and it was brutal. The clumsy phrase from Obama gave birth to the #NotOptimal hashtag on Twitter, which was trending nationwide as of 7:30 p.m. ET.

Welfare government’s single largest budget item in FY 2011 at approx. $1.03 trillion

The government spent approximately $1.03 trillion on 83 means-tested federal welfare programs in fiscal year 2011 alone — a price tag that makes welfare that year the government’s largest expenditure, according to new data released by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

The total sum taxpayers spent on federal welfare programs was derived from a new Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on federal welfare spending — which topped out at $745.84 billion for fiscal year 2011 — combined with an analysis from the Republican Senate Budget Committee staff of state spending on federal welfare programs (based on “The Oxford Handbook of State and Local Government Finance”), which reached $282.7 billion in fiscal year 2011.

The data excludes spending on Social Security, Medicare, means-tested health care for veterans without service-connected disabilities, and the means-tested veterans pension program.

According to the CRS report, which focused solely on federal spending for federal welfare programs, spending on federal welfare programs increased $563.413 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $745.84 billion in fiscal year 2011 — a 32 percent increase.

Further, spending on the 10 largest federal welfare programs has doubled as a share of the federal budget in the last 30 years: In inflation-adjusted dollars, according to Republican staff on the Senate Budget Committee, the amount spent on these programs has increased 378 percent in that 30 year time frame.

GOV’T DEFENDS OFFICIAL SUSPECTED OF CHILD-RAPE

The U.S. State Department, which has come under fire for its mishandling of security measures in Libya, now has launched a vocal defense of a high government official in the Netherlands accused of raping young boys.

WND already has reported that members of Congress are inserting themselves into the case, asking the Dutch for a “transparent” investigation and even calling on Turkey to deliver any evidence it has in the claims being made against Joris Demmink, the secretary general of the nation’s Justice Ministry.

Now WND has confirmed that the U.S. State Department, through its embassy in the Hague, is calling the statements of witnesses, including alleged victims, “unproven.” Accusations also include statements by private investigators and a former police official who reports he procured young boys for Demmink on instructions from Demmink,

The details were provided to WND by a source with access to an email exchange between congressional staff members and the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands.

Embassy officials said, “Demmink has been one of the most influential officials in the past three decades in three consecutive positions at the Ministry of Justice, first as director general for the Administration of Justice, then as director general for International Affairs and Alien Affairs, and since 2002 as the ministry’s highest official as secretary general.”

The officials confirmed that the international child sex trafficking scandal involving Demmink has been going on “since the mid-1990s.”

CNBC’S RICK SANTELLI TAKES ON THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN’S JOB CREATION CLAIM

Following today’s report on the increase in applications for U.S. unemployment benefits, CNBC’s Rick Santelli decided to take on the Obama campaign and its claim that the president has created “five million jobs.”

“You can slice it any way you want!” Santelli shouted in his inimitable style. “The president was sworn in in mid-January of ’09.”

“If I go back and look at nonfarm — and I have all the data! — actual nonfarm payrolls, the establishment survey, the headcount survey, and I take the 818 minus thousand from January,” he added, referring to the monthly job loss numbers the president encountered when he was inaugurated, “he wasn’t sworn in until the middle of the month. Do the math!”

“You know what the math is? It’s a push. It’s a push. There’s zero jobs created. It’s a push. If you look at the minuses and the pluses, it’s a push!”

By “push” Santelli means “null” and/or “draw,” that is, zero.

“So where do they get all these numbers and they’ll say, ‘well, they were going down for’ — listen: whether it’s [Chicago] Cub managers or the president, January of ’09 to today, throw out January, it’s a push, basically zero.”
