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:
I have been mad tweeting this morning on the new Culture War. The left tried SO hard to create a ‘racewar’but it didn’t take. They tried with Hobby Lobby. But it didn’t work. Now Sharpton has gone to a Christian attack. A so-called pastor. Voters, Christians, recognize this is JUST another liberal concoction and Fight Back! With Pence and Hutchinson caving, we have to Stand Up!
Following the announcement on Wednesday that Bergdahl is being charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, Sinise took to Twitter to suggest the Obama administration owes an explanation to not only the country, but to the families of the soldiers who died looking for Bergdahl.
Administration must explain, especially 2 families of those lost attempting 2 find him, the GITMO trade

I have stated here many times, that when I was an activist against Amnesty, while a Chicagoan, Jeff Sessions was the only one who bothered to communicate with me. And he was not even my senator. You know who my Senators were. Clinton and obama. So when Jeff became my Senator it filled me with pride that I could vote for a man of character and leave the other two destructive ones behind.
USCIS Official: We Process 7M Immigration Applications Each Year In Addition To Obama’s New Amnesty
The title of this post was from a statement by Jeff on Feb. 17th:
“The court’s ruling is yet further affirmation that the President’s action—as the President himself admitted many times—is illegal. President Obama has suspended some 500 pages of existing immigration law passed by the representatives of the American people, and replaced it with the very measures those representatives have repeatedly rejected. The President’s action violates our laws, our Constitution, and the centuries of legal heritage that yielded our Republic.
Sessions slams GOP leadership for caving to Obama and ‘open-borders billionaires’ on executive amnesty…
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, issued a statement Tuesday condemning the GOP Senate leadership’s retreat in the effort to defund President Obama’s executive actions on illegal immigration.
“Essential to any sovereign nation is the enforcement of its borders, the application of uniform rules for entry and exit, and the delivery of consequences for individuals who violate our laws,” Sen. Sessions said in his statement. “President Obama has nullified those laws, rules, and borders, and replaced those consequences with rewards.”
“[We cannot] allow the President to dismantle the constitutional powers of Congress,” Sen. Sessions said, “ceding our status as a coequal branch, on the hope the Judiciary intervenes to restore some fraction of that lost authority. When it comes to defending our sovereignty there is no ‘moving on.’ Now is not the time for recrimination; now is the time for renewed determination.”
“The will of the American people cannot be forever denied,” said Sessions. “Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security.”
While the left calls Jeff ‘radical’, if that means he sticks to his guns and does not relent, well, okay. Last week conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh hailed the Senator for being one of the only Republicans not “scared to death” to speak out, even in the face of media scrutiny.
“Once again, Senate Democrats have filibustered legislation to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security. They have done so for the sole purpose of protecting an unconstitutional action that many of these same lawmakers previously said they oppose. They continue to form a defensive wall around the President’s order instead of acting to defend the interests of their own constituents.
“I cannot vote for any legislation that funds this illegal amnesty. There must be a line in the sand, a moment where people say: this is where it stops. That is why I will oppose this legislation if the amnesty restrictions are removed, and urge my colleagues to do the same… The American people have asked of Congress, begged Congress, and pleaded with Congress for years for our laws to be enforced… Each time, the special interests, the open-borders billionaires, the global elites, get their way.
Sessions Discusses Need To Block Funds For President’s Unconstitutional Amnesty
The House passed H.R. 240. The bill funds the Department of Homeland Security without the policy rider that blocks President Obama’s executive action on immigration.
THIS is what he said: Excuse the caps, its CSpan *The transcript for this program was compiled from uncorrected Closed Captioning.
ACTUALLY. WE ARE NOT THREE SEPARATE BUT EQUAL BRANCHES OF THE GOVERNMENT. THE ABUSE OF THE EXEC TESTIFY ORDER HAS DIMINISHED CONGRESS AND THE ABUSE OF THE SENATE RULES HAS DIMINISHED THIS HOUSE. WE ARE NOW REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL ALLOW US TO PASS. AND WE ARE — AND THE SENATE’S REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL NOT VETO. THIS IS ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. WE HAVE THREE MORE DAYS IN WHICH WE CAN CONSIDER LEGISLATION THAT UPHOLDS THE RULE OF LAW, THAT RESTORES THE BALANCE OF POWERS. WE SHOULD TAKE THOSE THREE DAYS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS A DAY THAT WE WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, THAT THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING TO US RIGHT NOW TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL UPHOLD OUR OATH OF OFFICE. I CALL UPON EVERY MEMBER OF THIS HOUSE TO BE AN OATH KEEPER. I YIELD THE BALANCE OF MY TIME.
“The abuse of the executive order and abuse of the Senate rules has diminished this House.” - Gary Palmer
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) in a statement saying:
“The will of the American people cannot be forever denied. Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security.”
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer voted against a bill that would allow for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funds to go toward President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action concerning immigration, and is deeply disappointed that the bill passed:
“I have no higher priority as a member of Congress than restoring Constitutional governance. When it comes to funding DHS, the focus has been on immigration, but that is really not the issue. The real issue is the separation of powers set up by our Constitution. I believe the President, the Congress and the Courts should have the power given to them by the Constitution but not one power more.
“I am pleased that a court has given an injunction against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order, and I hope that will result in this illegal order being permanently struck down. However, it is not the sole function of the judiciary to uphold the Constitution. Congressmen also take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. This vote was not about politics, but about keeping my oath.
“Congress can and should pass legislation to secure our borders and fix our immigration system, but nothing in the law justifies unilateral action by the executive. The Constitution forbids the executive from unilaterally making law, and that is precisely what the President is attempting to do. I have consistently opposed measures that would legitimize President Obama’s unlawful executive action and I am deeply disappointed that this bill has passed.
Dr. Ben Carson isn’t saying he’s running for President. So don’t go thinking that he is. However if he were to say, hypothetically, make a bid for the White House… Well, he’d want you to know why that would – in theory – happen. To that end, he’s made a video announcing the formation of his 2016 exploratory committee.
Again, this is not – in any way – an announcement.
It’s a random guy *wink wink* who’s explaining why he might be interested *nudge nudge* in becoming the Commander in Chief.
Once again, no one *ahem* knows if he’s actually going to become a candidate. You can check out his website at BenCarson.com
