City Council Meeting Erupts in Applause After Ex-Marine Issues Dire Warning About U.S. Building a Domestic Army - The Blaze - A former member of the United States Marine Corps on Monday night voiced his serious concerns about the U.S. “building a domestic Army” during a local city council meeting in Concord, N.H. In his impassioned testimony, the ex-Marine said he believes that the recent push for local police forces to bulk up on military-grade equipment is disturbing and represents a very real threat to Americans. His fears bring to mind something President Barack Obama actually suggested while running for president in July 2008: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”....A full transcript of what the former Marine said to the crowd reads: We don’t need this. I’m a retired… I was a retired Colonel in the Marine Corps. ..........What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military because it’s unlawful and unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil. So what we’re doing is building a military. Read entire transcript of his remarks.......
(2) Dhimmitude and Religious Persecution in the U.S. Military - American Thinker - Nowhere is the oppression of religiously devout Christians and Jews more apparent than within the US military. Our warriors are being attacked by militant atheist progressives who have, ironically, much in common with devotedly combative Islamists. While it might seem that atheists and Islamists have little in common, both groups share a grim determination to suppress the religious freedoms of Christians and Jews.
One needs only to examine the ruthless suppression of Christian and Jewish minorities in countries such as Egypt, Syria and Iraq (among others) and the accompanying silence of the Left concerning such persecution to see the empathetic relationship between Islamists and the Left. The near total silence is a red flag indicator that the Left shares with Islamists the goal of suppressing Christians and Jews.
Allying the hostility of radical progressives with that of those sympathetic to fundamentalist Islamism is resulting in what might well be termed the dhimmitude of Christians and Jews in America's military. The attempts to silence Christians by forbidding "proselytizing," the rules and regulations surrounding open display of bibles, the curtailing of military chaplains' free speech, and the concerted effort to rid the military branches of references to God are all efforts to subvert and oppress Christianity and Judaism.

New Poll Shows Support for Defunding Obamacare - Heritage Foundation - How do you feel about defunding Obamacare?
A new poll of American voters shows a majority—57 percent—support defunding this unfair, unaffordable, unworkable law.
Heritage Action for America and Basswood Research asked voters in 10 different congressional districts for their views on Obamacare, and respondents were decidedly against the law. Six of these House districts are represented by Republicans and four by Democrats, but across the board, an overwhelming 77 percent of voters favored either a slowdown in implementation or outright repeal.
They also indicated that political scare tactics haven’t made them shy away from these opinions.Defunding Obamacare would protect millions of Americans from losing their current health insurance. It would prevent executive enforcement of Obamacare’s mandates, regulations, and tax increases. And time is growing short, because the Obamacare insurance exchanges are set to open on October 1.
Once the exchanges open and the creaky wheels of Obamacare start turning, it will do even more harm to our wallets, our health care, and our economy. Read more......
