Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker tonight fired back at President Barack Obama who suggested that Walker should “bone up on foreign policy.”
Obama’s remarks came after Walker said he’d revoke the nuclear weapons deal with Iran if he became president.
“It would be a foolish approach to take, and perhaps Mr. Walker, after he’s taken some time to bone up on foreign policy, will feel the same,” Obama told NPR.
Walker noted that Obama called ISIS jayvee, touted Yemen as a success story, and had a secretary of state who gave Russia a reset button.
Still, Walker remarked that Obama has the “audacity” to talk about schooling him on foreign policy.
“Why were the Iranians at the table in the first place? After nearly two decades of sanctions, they’re actually working. They’re not coming to the table out of the good nature of their hearts, trying to push for world peace; they’re coming to the table because they were being brought to their knees because of the sanctions of the United States and from our allies particularly in Europe,” Walker said.
The Kurds have been one of the most successful self-reliant forces against ISIS in Northern Syria and Iraq. ISIS has clashed with the Kurds many times over the past few months and most battles end with the Kurds maintaining or even gaining ground in the fight.
Ten Americans with military experience have independently decided to join the Kurds in their fight against ISIS. One of the Americans is Navy veteran Chris Toney. Toney recently took cell phone video of a clash with between 150 and 200 ISIS militants and provided the footage to The Blaze.
Below is the raw footage of a scenario the Americans were in where a hail of gunfire erupted in their direction from ISIS fighters.
Say a prayer for these brave men. They are getting shot and putting their lives on the line for the freedom of people who aren’t Americans.
STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING!
Navy veteran Chris Toney and nine other brave Americans joined Kurdish Peshmerga fighters in Iraq to help in fight against Islamic State terrorists. Toney provided exclusive video from his time in Iraq to TheBlaze:
Christians should be outraged, that a Christian teacher cannot teach the truth and warn the little ones of the dangers they face. The 8 page document is not only accurate factually and historically, it is mild in comparison to other research done by historians and the current situation we find in these Muslim countries.
This is the time to show courage in the face of this type of tyranny “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).
A Houston-area high school teacher is facing punishment from his school district for handing out material in a class that warned about Islam. And CAIR has called for his head.
As Franklin Graham (‘The Storm is Coming’), correctly revealed, that persecution of Christians is coming to America, the eight page document can be read here, it is factual and truthful:

Army Secretary John McHugh announced in February the service would award the medals, calling the gesture “an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice.” While opponents of President Obama predict he will attempt to garner credit for this “change of heart and the water-carrying news media will help him, it was the Republicans in the U.S. Congress who got these heroes their medals and benefits,” said former Naval officer and federal law enforcement official Charles Collingwood.

The victims say they feel abandoned by the U.S. government and by their military. The Pentagon last year fought efforts to award the Purple Heart out of concern that doing so could harm Hasan’s chance at receiving a fair trial.

A short animated film being aired across Iran depicts the nuclear destruction of Israel. The film opens with the word ‘Holocaust’ appearing on the screen, with a Star of David underneath it, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.
Although this was from February, it is very timely. Many of us believe this is inevitable. What is surprising, depicted by Iran is :
Western nations realize that the Islamic Republic has no intention to cease its nuclear development. To prevent Iran from building a bomb, the United States and its allies decide to take military action to destroy Tehran’s nuclear sites.
So then , it would have to be under a new president.
In the simulated war that follows, hundreds of Israeli and American fighter planes are seen jetting towards Iran. Ultimately, the jets are beaten back by Iran’s military.
With Iran having successfully defended itself, the simulation then shows Iranian forces going on the offensive. The video cuts to a scene showing Iranian Revolutionary Guard fighter planes flying over Israel, passing through Jerusalem and over the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Although it is in arabic, the final frame of the film leaves little room for doubt as to how this military campaign ends: a nuclear explosion is seen spreading across the screen.
Nonetheless, it shows Iran’s intention towards us. Many of us believe Iran needs no excuse to use a nuke, but they have always stated they want to wipe Israel and the United States off the map.
Alabamian (Alabaster) and Iraq War hero Noah Galloway, (NO Excuses) who lost his left arm and leg in a roadside bomb blast, delivered an incredible performance on Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Monday night, bringing at least one judge to tears, and the audience to its feet.
Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, Galloway doesn’t take excuses from his clients, fans and followers – and finds ways to get things done.
“You want a super hero?” Len asked after Noah Galloway and his partner Sharna’s short contemporary dance to Toby Keith’s “American Soldier,” “There it is.”
Monday night Galloway told the story of his “most memorable year;” sharing the night in 2005 he was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq:
“My most memorable year was 2005, on my second deployment to Iraq.”
Galloway and his former platoon leader, Lieutenant Jerry Eidson, then told the story of being out on a patrol in the night, attempting to see their surroundings in a hostile country with night vision goggles, when their Humvee rolled over a trip wire.
“It detonated a roadside bomb large enough it threw this 9,000 pound armored Humvee through the air.”
“Noah’s injuries were catastrophic,” said first responder Major Dennison Segui. “We didn’t think he was going to make it.”
Galloway woke up six days later on Christmas morning in Walter Reed hospital in Washington, D.C.:
“I was a physical person before the military. Once in the military, I had fallen in love with the job that I had, and suddenly I woke up and all that was gone,” Galloway said. “The career was gone, two of my limbs were gone, so I thought, ‘Well, there goes me ever being physical again.’”
Galloway said he tried to make it seem like he was ok, burying his grief, and drinking away his pain. Until one day he realized he couldn’t do that any more.
“This dance represents the journey of acceptance from the man I was, to the man I’ve become,” he concluded.
“I really looked in the mirror and quit looking at what I was missing, and paid more attention to what I still had left,” Galloway said, fighting to hold back tears. “I realized I had to make a change, and it had to happen fast; my kids were growing up.”
~ And when Noah looked into the mirror at the beginning of his dance, well that says it all ~ JP:
The proposed deal lets Iran continue to develop use advanced centrifuges which could allow for uranium enrichment as much as 20 times faster than the Islamic Republic’s current technology. After 12 years, Iran can actually resume enriching uranium, which the newspaper reported “would enable Iran to more rapidly accumulate the highly enriched uranium needed to build nuclear weapons, accelerating its breakout time to the bomb.” The source is an internal French government fact-sheet which the newspaper was able to review, but which has not been released publicly.
That timeline, however, dovetails with an acknowledgment President Obama made this week in an interview with National Public Radio. Iran’s “break-out” time to make a bomb could shrink “almost down to zero” by year 13 after any final deal is negotiated, Obama said.
Israeli analyst Ehud Yaari identified six terms in the proposed agreement in which the United States and Iran have offered different assessments. Among them: Iran believes it stands to secure immediate relief from crippling economic sanctions, while the U.S. says that relief comes in phases as various commitments are met. In addition, Iran believes it can continue to use the Fordo underground uranium enrichment plant for developing centrifuges, while the U.S. says no enrichment could take place there for 15 years.
Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz briefed reporters Monday on recommendations which could lead to “a more reasonable agreement.” The Fordow plant must be shut down entirely, inspectors must be able to make unannounced visits “anywhere, anytime” and development of new centrifuges must be prohibited, he said.
Although Israel prefers a diplomatic solution to the issue, Steinitz acknowledged, it was still reserving the right to take military action against Iran should it be necessary.
“It’s still on the table, it’s going to remain on the table,” he said. “It’s our right and duty to decide how to defend ourselves, especially if our national security and even very existence are under threat.”
The WH ‘alleges’ it was unclassified data, sure it was. obama’s schedule, etc. But I have to wonder if it was Hillary. Her and Cheryl and who knows who, emailed the Chinese donors of her foundation.. She has a long standing relationship with the Chinese.
Then there’s her reset button with Russia and obama’s promise off mike, to do more for Putin once he’s reelected.
Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser to CNN:
“We do not believe that our classified systems were compromised”
But that’s contradictory to the the White House has said the breach only ever affected an unclassified system, that description belies the seriousness of the intrusion.
Rhodes JUST told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview on “The Situation Room.” :
“We’re constantly updating our security measures on our unclassified system but we’re frankly told to act as if we need not put information that’s sensitive on that system,” he said. “In other words, if you’re going to do something classified, you have to do it on one email system, one phone system.
Enter the recent Russian hack into the ‘State Dept. system. To get to the White House, the hackers first broke into the State Department, investigators believe.
The State Department computer system has been bedeviled by signs that despite efforts to lock them out, the Russian hackers have been able to reenter the system. One official says the Russian hackers have “owned” the State Department system for months and it is not clear the hackers have been fully eradicated from the system.
The revelations about the State Department hacks also come amid controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business during her time in office. Critics say her private server likely was even less safe than the State system. The Russian breach is believed to have come after Clinton departed State.
But hackers have long made Clinton and her associates targets.
The website The Smoking Gun first reported in 2013 that a hacker known as Guccifer had broken into the AOL email of Sidney Blumenthal, a friend and advisor to the Clintons, and published emails Blumenthal sent to Hillary Clinton’s private account. The emails included sensitive memos on foreign policy issues and were the first public revelation of the existence of Hillary Clinton’s private email address now at the center of controversy:
The address is no longer in use.
But what did she give up before she wiped it out? This on the heels Hillary will announce her candidacy for said WH. To me the WH, Clinton and Snowden all made this happen. Heck let’s throw in obama, Putin working with Snowden. Why not? Do you trust any of them? I sure don’t…~JP
1,316 days that’s how long Amir Hekmati, an American marine has been held in a brutal Iranian prison, the one known for torture. Now Amir Hekmati’s sister, Sarah Hekmati, and his brother-in-law join us from Amir’s hometown in Flint, Michigan.
Listen to Montel and the family of US Marine veteran Amir Hekmati:
We have a US Marine veteran Amir Hekmati being head by Iran in their worst prison, known for torture, and the only one I hear talking about it and showing outrage is Marine veteran Montel Williams.
This Marine should be home with his family Help @Montel_Williams spread the word #FreeAmirNow Follow @FreeAmirHekmati ~ J.W. Dumas
Montel Williams is determined not to leave a fellow serviceman behind:
In August 2011, Iranian-American Amir Hekmati was detained by authorities in Iran while visiting family. His imprisonment on false charges continues.
Amir is an Iranian-American detained in Iran while visiting his grandmother. Falsely accused of being a spy, he was detained in August of 2011, held in solitary confinement for months and hidden by the walls of Iran’s Evin prison.
He was sentenced to death in January of 2012, the first American to receive the death penalty in Iran in over 33 years. His death sentence was overturned by a higher court in March 2012 based on insufficient evidence, and a new trial ordered. Amir languished behind the walls of Evin prison, his fate looming over his head.
In April of 2014, it was discovered that Amir was tried and sentenced to ten years in a secret, closed-door proceeding – a proceeding in December 2013 that Amir and his attorney were not informed of and were not given the opportunity attend.
Amir’s father, battling brain cancer, recently suffered a stroke that has left him hospitalized. His father fears he will never hold Amir in his arms again.
Amir Hekmati, a US Marine makes plea for help, accused Iranian government of using him as a bargaining chip…
He has been put in 3 by 3 cells. He has been whipped on his feet. He has been addicted to drugs so that they can torture him through his withdrawal. This has been happening for three and a half years and there is not a person in this country knows that a US Marine has been sitting there in prison this long. I think this is an abomination. ~ Montel Williams
It’s bad enough that we have a Marine veteran sitting in an Iranian prison left behind, but now we are leaving Montel behind. We should all be standing by and with Montel, helping him.
Note: This happened last night. If your a Christian pizzeria, screw you. muslim call to prayer okie. And note it is done @ a radical national headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America!!!
Jameel Syed from Auburn Hills speaks about his nationwide trip at the Tawheed Center in Farmington Hills. Syed plans to travel the United States to do the Muslim call to prayer in each of the 50 states over the next month.
“There is one objective above and beyond anything else, and that is to basically praise my own hero in life, and that is Prophet Mohammed,” he told the Free Press. “I want to praise him. I’ve drawn a lot of inspiration form him
Auburn Hills man learned how to recite the call to prayer as an 11-year-old boy in Ann Arbor. Hoping to spread a message of peace, he intends to recite it in 50 states across the U.S. in 35 days
The scene inside the Tawheed Center mosque on Thursday night is similar to what happens five times a day at mosques around the world, a resonant voice that cries out to remind believers that it’s time to worship God. Called the “adhan,” the Muslim call to prayer is one of the more familiar parts of Islamic life, and one that Syed, 40, has become known for in metro Detroit.
Holding his hands over his ears, Jameel Syed stood in front of the congregation at a Farmington Hills mosque, calling the faithful to prayer.
He hopes his trip can help younger Muslims connect with their faith.
“I’d like to leave a legacy for my children, my children’s children,” he said. “This is what it’s about.”
Syed is aiming to become the first person to perform the adhan in all 50 U.S. states, using his voice across America to help educate the public about Islam, praise its prophet, and also honor the memory of his father. He kicked off his spiritual journey Thursday at the Tawheed Center and performed his first call to prayer on , wait for it…
Friday in Indiana at the national headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America, one of the biggest Muslim groups in the U.S. His efforts are being supported by several Muslim groups and donors through Go Fund Me.
