As an American citizen and as a reader of this post, please commit to viewing the video below and reading the materials. I am asking you after doing so, please answer the question: Could a citizens arrest be made of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? If the answer is no, please state your reasoning behind that answer.

  • Obamas Nuclear Legacy Leaves America and Allies Less Safe

    The Daily Signal ^ | January 23, 2017 | Michaela Dodge
    In his Jan. 11 remarks on nuclear weapons policy, the outgoing Vice President Joe Biden praised former President Barack Obamas nuclear weapons policy. In reality, there are very few grounds for congratulations when it comes to Obamas legacy. Take, for example, the Iran deal. Biden argued that the administration got the deal through a combination of international sanctions and hard-nosed diplomacy. In reality, the deal was sold to the American public by concealing the full extent of concessions the administration had to make to get the Iranians to agree to it. The deal does not prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear...

    Welcome to 2016 when male soldiers train in pregnancy simulators, tactical lactation stations dot the battlefield, women are fraudulently passed through Ranger School and US Navy sailors willingly surrender their boats and equipment to Iranian thugs without so much as firing a flare. Its the era of breast milk in the field and Liberace joins Delta Force A perfect storm, a Category Five hurricane of doom and destruction is sweeping over the US military with the deadly accuracy of the Angel of Death on Passover. We have a President who is intent on destroying the military through insane social engineering....
  • The Pentagon's Third Offset: Just a Smoke Screen for a Shrinking US Military?

    The third offset strategy hopes to accomplish two objectives. First, by investing in groundbreaking technologies in such areas as undersea systems, hypersonics, electronic warfare, big data analytics, advanced materials, 3D printing, energy and propulsion, robotics, autonomy, man-machine interfaces and advanced sensing and computing, the Pentagon hopes to create new military capabilities that will counter competitors advances in precision weapons, long-range missiles and electronic warfare. Second, by relying more heavily on technologies developed in commercial industry and, even more important, on the practices of cutting-edge IT companies in the areas of innovation, experimentation and rapid development and deployment, DoD believes it...

    Kevin Knodell writes at The Week that in response to the rising Chinese influence in the South China Sea and a troubled relationship with Chinese-allied Pakistan, the United States is building new ties with India. He notes that the US has surpassed Russia as India’s largest military supplier, that Indian special forces recently participated in joint exercises at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter recently “discussed the possibility of sharing technology to help New Delhi build its first domestically produced aircraft carrier INS Vishal .”

    Candidate Ted Cruz and candidate John Kasich have officially “suspended” their campaign efforts to win the republican nomination. However, the campaign effort to deliver a resounding win for Donald Trump continues.Yes, a major hurdle has been crossed – Donald Trump is now the last remaining candidate running for the nomination; but that doesn’t mean the push through the last remaining states should be any less important. Every vote counts. Every delegate matters.Anyone who is inclined toward complacency needs only to look at the reaction yesterday by House Speaker Paul ‘Omnibus‘ Ryan and note why it is vital for the...
  • Trump angst pours in from overseas governments (lobbyists working for foreign govs)

    Lobbyists in Washington say they are being flooded with questions and concerns from foreign governments about the rise of Donald Trump. Officials around the globe are closely following the U.S. presidential race, to the point where some have asked their American lobbyists to explain, in great detail, what a contested GOP convention would look like. The questions about Trump are almost all-consuming, said Richard Mintz, the managing director of Washington-based firm The Harbour Group, whose client list includes the governments of Georgia and the United Arab Emirates. After a recent trip to London, Abu Dhabi and Beijing, its fair to...

    The Kremlin spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year on a global propaganda network that spreads conspiracy theories, distorts reality, and incites suspicion and hatred of the United States and its representative democracy. And that is just Russia - China and Qatar have similar operations. We have nothing that bears comparison. The main Putin network, RT, has more employees than the Voice of America. We are disarming ourselves not only materially but also ideologically. This must end. From Sweden in the Baltic to Tartus in the Mediterranean, Russian forces are on the offensive.

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote: “Let’s not mince words, Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist.” I cited a long list of incidents in which he targeted women, Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, Asians and the disabled. Here’s what I heard back from Trump’s defenders: “Let’s not mince words,” somebody tweeted under the name Helios Megistos. “Milbank is an anti-white parasite and a bigoted kike supremacist.” “[Trump] may well be a bigot and a racist,” one Michael Banfield wrote me via email. “But one thing is certain: The only thing missing from your photo is a [vulgar word...

    The plans of the next president are personal to the officers of the Pentagon, who are threatening to quit if The Donald becomes commander-in-chief. Republican presidential candidate and business mogul Donald Trump has repeatedly vowed to build up the U.S. military if elected president. But it is not clear he will have the experienced commanders within the ranks to do it. In the halls of the Pentagon, there is a different plan afoot for the Trump presidency. Here, officers are privately contemplating what they would do should Trump become their commander-in-chief. And more often than not, they proclaim they will...

    A Chinese attack submarine conducted a simulated cruise missile attack on the aircraft carrier USS Reagan during a close encounter several weeks ago, according to American defense officials. The targeting incident near the Sea of Japan in October violated China's 2014 commitment to the multinational Code for Unplanned Encounters at Sea, known as CUES, designed to reduce the risk of a shooting incident between naval vessels, said officials familiar with details of the encounter they described as "serious." A section of the non-binding 2014 agreement states that commanders at sea should avoid actions that could lead to accidents or mishaps....

    Fox’s Eric Bolling tonight––guest-hosting The O’Reilly Factor––said that the Republicans criticizing Donald Trump are basically on the same side as Hillary Clinton and the liberal media.As far as Bolling’s concerned, Trump’s all-Muslim ban isn’t really that bad of an idea, partly because it’s not hurting him in the polls.He asked, “Is this a mistake for the other GOP contenders to line up on the same side as Hillary Clinton and the media?… You’re forcing the American public, the GOP to choose. A lot of them don’t like liberals or the media.”Simon Rosenberg still said it was a bad idea because...

    "You're all suckers." That has to be what Barack Obama is thinking as the country falls for his head-fake. Let's recap. George W. Bush's surge reduced the Islamic State's precursor, al-Qaida in Iraq, to a paltry 700 members, according to CIA Director John Brennan. Its membership has grown by something close to 4,000 percent. As it metastasized, Obama yawned, calling it the "JV team." When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad violated Obama's "red line," Obama yawned again, and the refugee crisis was born. By August 2014, Obama was grudgingly conceding he needed a new counterterrorism strategy. One tactic he ruled out:...

    Rand Paul had his best debate moment Tuesday when he challenged Marco Rubio on his plans to increase defense spending by $1 trillion. "You cannot be a conservative if you're going to keep promoting new programs you're not going to pay for," said Paul. Marco's retort triggered the loudest cheers of the night: "There are radical jihadists in the Middle East beheading people and crucifying Christians. The Chinese are taking over the South China Sea. ... the world is a safer and better place when America is the strongest military power in the world." Having called for the U.S. Navy...

    President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907, at the dawn of what would be called the American Century, sent the Great White Fleet on a 14-month-long world cruise, Consisting of four naval squadron including four battleships each accompanied by their escorts, it was a signal that America had arrived as a world power and was going to be a player. By sending five warships into Alaskan territorial waters while President Obama visited the 49th state to eat bear-killed salmon, rename Mt. McKinley, and warn of non-existent climate change,, China has made a similar statement that it intends this to be the Chinese...

    It does not bode well that an Obama administration that assures us that the nuclear deal with Iran will not be violated by the mullahs is clearly looking the other way as Irans ally Russia blatantly violates the 1987 Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty signed with the former Soviet Union. The Obama White House is sitting on a Pentagon risk assessment report completed last month that states that the breach involved a new missile that violates the limits set by the treaty. The treaty bans holding, producing, or flight-testing ground-launched ballistic or cruise missiles with ranges of between 310 miles...

    The US Army is far more heavily engaged around the world than projected when it began slashing force size several years ago, and its commitments will be hard to maintain in the long run as troop numbers shrink, General Ray Odierno said on Friday. Odierno, the Army chief of staff, said decisions about cutting the size of the force from 570,000 to the current 490,000 were made several years ago when Pentagon planners expected a peaceful Europe, a declining commitment in Afghanistan and no return to Iraq. Instead, he said, the Army is regularly using three brigades in eastern Europe...

    A devastatingreportby the Heritage Foundation reveals yet another arena where the Obama administration, with the blessings of the Democrat Party, is fundamentally transforming the United States of America. "The U.S. military may be weaker than you think, the report states. "All but one branch of Americas military and nuclear forces are currently operating at marginal' strength levels. The Heritage Foundations conclusions are strikingly at odds with the2014 Quadrennial Defense Review, which maintains the U.S. can still fight two major conflicts simultaneously. Yet that same report highlights the reality that beginning in FY2012 the Department of Defense began absorbing the "significant...
