Three to four years ago the United States helped to arm the al-Qaeda off shoot which became the Islamic State (ISIL) with the idea that it was more “moderate” than Jabhat al-Nusra, which is part of al-Qaeda. Then the United States armed Sunni fighters such as the Hazzm Movement, associated with the Free Syrian Army, to fight al-Nusra and the Islamic State. But the Hazzm Brigade joined with al-Nusra in January, 2015. Obama then ordered bombing al-Nusra along with the Hazzm Brigade which we had armed and trained. Then this month we bombed the ISIL during a battle to help al-Nusra and other al-Qaeda affiliated groups including the Hazzm Brigade.

The Magna Carta was a key document in establishing the basis for self-government, a written Constitution and the rule of law over the King’s edicts in England and later in America.
The looney left is going into spasms over recent remarks by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) over Obama’s support of Islamic terrorists. The Democratic Underground headlined an article, “Louie Gohmert Goes Crazy On House Floor, Suggests That Obama Aids Terrorists.”
“Today’s decision from the federal appeals court is another victory for the Constitution and the American people. President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration poses a clear and present danger to our Constitution and I am pleased that the President’s actions continue to be halted so that the states’ lawsuit can continue to move forward.
This ruling is the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals confirmation of the Constitution’s allocation of power while also tacitly agreeing with President Obama’s declaration time and time again that a president does not have the power to carry out a sweeping amnesty program of this nature. Not only did the Obama administration’s unlawful memos trample on the U.S. Constitution, they caused many, who applied to come to the United States legally, to go to the back of the processing line behind those who were breaking the law.
Even after six and a half years of the most dogmatically leftist administration in our history, with a mainstream media shamelessly pimping for its policies and Hollywood casting conservatives as a cross between Hannibal Lecter and Elmer Gantry – well over a third of Americans say they’re conservatives, against slightly less than one-quarter who call themselves liberals (doubtless, most with post-graduate liberal arts degrees or Obama phones).
It’s no wonder that our military personnel’s trust in their commander-in-chief is at an all time low. The president’s speech at the Coast Guard Academy stating his belief that climate change poses the greatest threat to future generations is a severe disconnect from reality. On the day he delivered the speech, the leading headline in the press was North Korea’s announcement that it now has the ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons and place it on the tip of a ballistic missile.
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was recently on Fox News to discuss Obama’s plan to recruit illegals into our military – at the same time he’s giving pink slips to soldiers, sailors and Marines who have devoted their lives to serving their country.
I remain steadfastly opposed to President Obama’s executive amnesty and am proud to support this amicus brief,” said Coats. “The Constitutional role of a U.S. president is to faithfully execute the law, not alter or ignore it as he sees fit. President Obama’s actions to change existing law and grant amnesty via executive order exceed his Constitutional authority.”
“No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction, and decline. Of all forms of government, those administered by bureaus are about the least satisfactory to an enlightened and progressive people. Being irresponsible they become autocratic… Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government and overwhelms democracy.
