All This For a Flag: Obama & the New “Colonel Sanders”: Twin Brothers From Different Mothers?

th (22)th (21) PROLOGUE: On 9/13/11, 2 days after America solemnly remembered the 10th anniversary of the worst attack ever on American soil by Islamic Terrorists.  James Robbins wrote the following story for The Washington Times, in which he illuminated a whispered conversation between the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and First Lady, Michelle Obama:

The internet was buzzing this week with video of First Lady Michelle Obama apparently showing extreme disrespect to the American flag at a ceremony in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, “all this just for a flag.” She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.

What does the President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) have in common with an American Legend, Colonel Harland Sanders, the entrepreneur responsible for Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Best known for founding the fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken, Colonel Harland David Sanders was born on September 9, 1890, in Henryville, Indiana. After his father died when he was 6 years old, Sanders became responsible for feeding and taking care of his younger brother and sister. Beginning at the age of 10, he held down numerous jobs, including farmer, streetcar conductor, railroad fireman and insurance salesman.

At age 40, Sanders was running a service station in Kentucky, where he would also feed hungry travelers. Sanders eventually moved his operation to a restaurant across the street, and featured a fried chicken so notable that he was named a Kentucky colonel in 1935 by Governor Ruby Laffoon.

After closing the restaurant in 1952, Sanders devoted himself to franchising his chicken business. He traveled across the country, cooking batches of chicken from restaurant to restaurant, striking deals that paid him a nickel for every chicken the restaurant sold. His first franchise sale went to Pete Harman of Salt Lake City. In 1964, with more than 600 franchised outlets, he sold his interest in the company for $2 million to a group of investors.

Kentucky Fried Chicken went public in 1966 and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1969. More than 3,500 franchised and company-owned restaurants were in worldwide operation when Heublein Inc. acquired KFC Corporation in 1971for $285 million. KFC became a subsidiary of R.J. Reynolds Industries, Inc. (now RJR Nabisco, Inc.), when Heublein Inc. was acquired by Reynolds in 1982. KFC was acquired in October 1986 from RJR Nabisco, Inc. by PepsiCo, Inc., for approximately $840 million.

Sanders continued to visit the KFC restaurants around the world as a spokesman in his later years. He died of leukemia on December 16, 1980, at the age of 90, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Ever since the Colonel passed away, his image has remained an integral and essential part of the KFC Brand.

In a classic example of not leaving well enough alone, KFC’s Marketing Geniuses decided that the time was right to “resurrect” Colonel Harland Sanders, with Saturday Night Live Alumni Darrel Hammond playing the role of the American Legend.

Brilliant, right?

Not quite.

Under the category of “the best plans of mice and men oft-times going awry”, the American people have indeed, responded, to Darrel Hammond’s portrayal of the Colonel.

Instead of being enamored with this irreverent version of the Colonel, Americans out here in the heartland find the KFC Commercials “disrespectful and creepy”.

Remember that phrase, boys and girls.

Barack Hussein Obama is presently in his second term as the President of the United States of America.

Americans have noticed that there is a great disconnect between the citizens of the United States and their president.  It’s not just his stand-offish behavior.  There’s something else going on.  He was not raised like the majority of Americans.
He didn’t have rubber dart gun wars in the neighborhood backyards.  He didn’t play Nerf football in the front yards.  He didn’t go to Vacation Bible School.  I don’t know if he was ever told to stand with his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance.
It is this disconnect that is at the heart of the trouble with Obama’s presidency.   Hope and Change have turned into despair and disbelief.  Obama has never understood the shared values of average Americans, because the people who raised him did not share those values, either.  It is the concern that we feel for one another, that shared American value system, that is causing a great awakening.
Yesterday morning, after Donald Trump ordered the American Flag to be flown at half-mast at all of his buildings, along with several governors in their State Capitols, followed by Speaker of the House John Boehner ordering the flags on Capitol Hill to be flown at half-mast as well, President Obama had no choice but to order the American Flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff, four days after five armed forces members were killed last week by a Radical Islamic Gunman.
The proclamation, which Obama issued after his forced decision, calls for the flags to remain at half-mast through Saturday “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 16.”
Uh huh.
Why did Scooter wait for 5 days before doing the right thing, to honor our fallen Brightest and Best?
The Godfather of Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, had a pretty good answer for that question on his show, yesterday…
So Obama’s doing damage control in Pittsburgh.  He just finished.  He’s addressing the — I guess the VFW convention.  He finally announced they’re gonna lower the flag at the White House to half staff in honor of the Marines killed in Chattanooga.  They held out as long as they could.  They looked for a motive. They overturned every rock. They looked into every nook and cranny. They were desperate to find anything that they could latch onto that said this had nothing to do with militant Islam, and finally they found just the opposite.  They found evidence that militant Islam is behind this, be it Al-Qaeda or ISIS.  By the way, what does it matter whether it’s ISIS or Al-Qaeda?  You know, some of the Drive-Bys are trying to make a big deal, “It wasn’t ISIS. It wasn’t ISIS! It was Al-Qaeda.”  What, is there a difference?  What, do we now like Al-Qaeda?  Is Al-Qaeda somehow not a threat now?  ISIS is the only threat?  Just amazing.  I’m half surprised they didn’t blame all this on Trump trying to take Trump out.
As we watch his second term continue to self-destruct, while his Signature Legislation, Obamacare, does its impression of the “sinking of the Titanic”, the President of the United States , shows more concern about the feelings and well-being of Islamic Terrorists than he does about the American Citizens he is supposed to be protecting and honoring the brave American Men and Women, who are serving under him as Commander-in-Chief.
So, what DO President Barack Hussein Obama and the  “resurrected” Colonel Harland Sanders have in common?
Remember that phrase from earlier, which I told you to lock away in your memory?
 
“Disrespectful and creepy”?
Well…there you go.

Obama, the Main Stream Media, and the Chattanooga Massacre: A Purposeful Naivete

AFBrancoThe-Sword-9122014It’s time to vent.

Earlier this week, our nation was once again rocked, by a violent attack by a Muslim Terrorist, who wanted to “kill the infidels”.

In the average American city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, a young Muslim man, who was born in Kuwait, educated in America, and had spent time in Jordan, shot up a recruiting center before driving to the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center and killed four Marines before he was shot and killed.

Since then, America has watched and listened, as the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) made a Statement about the heinous, ISIS-inspired attack, saying,

We don’t know yet all the details.  We know that what appears to be a lone gunman carried out these attacks.  We’ve identified a name.  And at this point, a full investigation is taking place.  The FBI will be in the lead, working closely with local law enforcement.

Once again, he refused to identify the attack as that of a Muslim Terrorist, even though, by that point, it was certain that Obama had been  briefed on Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s identity and Political Ideology, disguised as a religion.

After The Lightbringer’s Royal Decree, his loyal subjects in the Main Stream Media started speculating as to the identity and motives of the perpetrator or perpetrators of this horrible crime. Of course, you never heard a single one of these trained monkeys speculate that it could be…**gasp**…adherents of the “religion of peace”.

Allah forbid.

According to these “journalists”, immediately after it happened,  the person responsible was either a Tea Party member, a “Sovereign Citizen”, a doomsday prepper, or a Southern Baptist from Mississippi, who drove a Pickup Truck with a Confederate Battle Flag in back.

Of course, they believed with every fiber of their beings that they were right. After all, Barack the First had solved the “Muslim Problem” back in July of 2009, in his “Outreach to the Muslim World” Speech at the University of Cairo in Egypt, when he said,

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today. People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind and the heart and the soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it’s being challenged in many different ways.

Among some Muslims, there’s a disturbing tendency to measure one’s own faith by the rejection of somebody else’s faith. The richness of religious diversity must be upheld — whether it is for Maronites in Lebanon or the Copts in Egypt. (Applause.) And if we are being honest, fault lines must be closed among Muslims, as well, as the divisions between Sunni and Shia have led to tragic violence, particularly in Iraq.

Freedom of religion is central to the ability of peoples to live together. We must always examine the ways in which we protect it. For instance, in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That’s why I’m committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.

Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit — for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We can’t disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretense of liberalism.

In fact, faith should bring us together.

And, after all, hasn’t he just healed our entire relationship with Radical Islam by giving Iran the nuclear bomb?

The still-fresh American Blood, spilt on the ground by the ISIS-inspired perpetrator of the Chattanooga Massacre did not stop the Head Dhimmi from issuing the following statement to the “Muslim World”, concerning the end of Ramadan, that very day:

Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual – a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.

For millions of Muslims, the morning of Eid is marked with the call to prayer echoing through cities and towns across the globe. Millions of people head to local mosques for special Eid prayers followed by festive gatherings, gift exchanges, and feasts among friends, neighbors and families. The diversity of traditions paint the vibrant images we see from around the world capturing the spirit and excitement of Eid – colorful dresses or white garments decorating the masses of people standing in lines for prayer, lanterns and ornaments lighting up bazaars and neighborhoods, intricate henna designs painted on hands of young girls and women, and an abundance of delectable foods and aromatic cuisines.

As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs. This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays – an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation. During this year’s White House Iftar, I had the opportunity to meet inspiring young Muslim Americans who are leading efforts for greater understanding and unity across diverse communities. Following the Iftar, one of the young attendees helped spearhead an effort that raised more than $75,000 for the churches burned in the wake of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Americans of all faiths and beliefs must stand together to protect our democracy and strengthen our country as a whole.

Does being a Liberal, just naturally make you gullible, uncaring, and tone deaf?

Obama has held meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Godfather of all Muslim Terrorist Groups, and he actually had pomposity and stupidity to hold those meetings in OUR house!

Evidently, judging by Arab Spring, the New Boston Massacre, the Little Rock, Arkansas Recruiting Station Attack, and now, the Chattanooga Massacre, just to name a few Terrorist attacks, the Muslim Extremists still don’t buy what ol’ Scooter  is selling.

I guess he’s just living up to the words which Bomber Bill Ayers wrote down for him in the book, “Audacity of Hope”, when he was speaking about the possibility of the American citizenry turning against the Muslims…

I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

Evidently, his loyal minions in the Main Stream Media have decided to stand with them, too.

Who do they think they are fooling? Even Pookie, sitting on her couch, eating Cheetos and watching “The View”, isn’t that stupid.

The great British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, wrote about Muslim Fanaticism in 1899…

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits,slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Ol’ Winnie would shake his head in disgust, if he saw that Sharia Law was active in the United Kingdom today.

With the president and the Main Stream Media’s dubious, politically correct complicity in a semantic cover-up on the true political/religious ideology of Muslim Terrorist Attacks in our country, it’s  a wonder that we know anything at all about what really happened.

The president swore to protect us from “enemies foreign and domestic”.

Evidently, that promise, like 99.9% of every promise he makes,(except for the one about standing with the Muslims) came with an expiration date.

God protect us.

Muslim Terrorism Strikes Chattanooga

th41DYJKKPA great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil — the very worst of human nature — and we responded with the best of America. With the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.

…Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a Power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23:

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me.”

This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world. – President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001

Foxnews.com reports that

Four Marines were killed Thursday at a Chattanooga, Tenn., Navy training center, in what authorities called a possible “act of domestic terrorism” that consisted of two attacks carried out by a lone gunman at military facilities just seven miles apart, officials said.

The unidentified gunman shot up a recruiting center before driving to the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center and killing four Marines before he was shot, authorities said. Sources told Fox News police chased the gunman from the recruiting center to the Center, where the killings took place. The FBI and military police were investigating the attack, but authorities could not rule out the possibility of terrorism. 
“We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism,” said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

The names of the Marines who were reportedly shot were not immediately released pending notification of their families. The Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center lies along a bend in the Tennessee River, northeast of downtown Chattanooga.

Despite Killian’s statement, an FBI Special Agent Ed Reinhold told reporters that it may have been a criminal act. The gunman was killed, but authorities did not comment on his identity, motivation or the circumstances of his death. Authorities said the gunman did not work at either military facility.

Reinhold said all the dead were killed at the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center Chattanooga. It sits between Amnicola Highway and a pathway that runs through Tennessee RiverPark, a popular park at a bend in the Tennessee River northeast of downtown Chattanooga. It’s in a light industrial area that includes a Coca-Cola bottling plant and Binswanger Glass.

The two entrances to the fenced facility have unmanned gates and concrete barriers that require approaching cars to slow down to drive around them.

Marilyn Hutcheson, who works at Binswanger Glass just across the street from the center on Amnicola Highway, said she heard a barrage of gunfire around 11 a.m.

“I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many,” she said. “It was rapid fire, like pow pow pow pow pow, so quickly. The next thing I knew, there were police cars coming from every direction.”

President Obama was briefed by his national security team on the shooting involving two military sites, according to White House spokesman Eric Schultz.

In the first incident, the gunman, in a silver Mustang, drove up to the Armed Forces Career Center in a strip mall on Lee’s Highway and sprayed the facade with gunfire before driving off, officials said. An unidentified police officer was shot in the ankle, but not seriously injured, according to reports.

A federal law enforcement official told Fox News that officers from FBI’s Knoxville field office responded to the scene.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported that there is a heavy police presence at the scene, along with five ambulances.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it was holding departing flights at their gates in Chattanooga, with delays projected to last 15 minutes or less.

“This is a very, very terrible situation,” Andy Berke, the city’s mayor told reporters. “I’m very concerned about what’s going on. We need to figure out how to handle it.”

Later yesterday…

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Thursday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the shooting of four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee “is in all probability an example of radical Islam at work.” 

However, he cautioned against overstating ISIS’ influence on domestic attacks, noting that similar incidents, such as the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, predate the terrorist group.

The gunman in Thursday’s attack, 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, was also killed. The investigation into the shooter’s motive is ongoing.

“This is in all probability an example of radical Islam at work, and you know I think our emphasis on ISIS is a little overstated because we’ve had these attacks that predate ISIS,” Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor, said.

“Nidal Hasan, when he shot and killed thirteen Americans, stood up on a table and yelled out “Allah Akbar,” [and] was acting pre-ISIS,” Krauthammer said.

“What ISIS does is I think it gives direction, organization, and because of its command of the social media can actually activate people in a way that was more random before,” he said.

“But, the general issue is radical Islam. And unless we have a president who immediately says this is a lone gunman, how does he know?”

Then, last night on Fox News

Donald Trump joined Bill O’Reilly tonight to discuss the horrific shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

Four Marines were killed today when a gunman opened fire at two separate military centers.

A police officer was also wounded and suffered non-life threatening injuries. The suspected shooter has been ID’d as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

The names of the Marines who were reportedly shot were not immediately released pending notification of their families.

The 2016 GOP presidential candidate told O’Reilly that it’s “ridiculous” that the Marines aren’t allowed to carry guns at the centers.

“These are four great Marines … and that they’re not allowed to carry guns is absolutely ridiculous,” Trump stated. 

He said that the country needs to have better intelligence and stronger protection. 

Trump also stated that President Obama refuses to use the term “Islamic terrorism,” but it’s happening all over the world. 

“It’s going to get worse in our country and we better start fighting a lot tougher than we’re fighting right now Bill,” he said. 

Obama has been courting the Islamic World since his July 2009 speech to them at the University of Cairo, Egypt.

Why do Obama and his Liberal Minions continue to naively defend these barbarians, and, in Obama’s case, give a Rogue Nation of Radical Muslims the nuclear bomb?

Are they so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?

The maddening thing is that every time you challenge liberals on this fact, they try to equate radical Islam with American Christianity.

Let’s talk about “radicalization” for a moment…

When Christians become “radicalized”, we want to share the testimony of what God has done for us through His love, with everyone we meet. We get involved in our local church and we become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and American Citizens.

When Muslims become “radicalized”, they want to “kill the Infidels” in the name of “Allah the Merciful”.

In the case of the massacre in Chattanooga yesterday, immersion into Radical Islam led a young man from Kuwait to “kill the infidels” that horrendous day.

In the case of the barbarians of ISIS, it has turned them into doppelgangers of the Nazi Butchers of Dachau.

Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 74% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

For Liberals to deny that, is disingenuous at best, and just plain out-and-out lying at worst.

If Obama and his minions do not wake up from their egocentric naiveté and smell what they have been shoveling, America will be hit by more massacres like yesterday’s, culminating in mushroom clouds over the Heartland.

May God hold the families of those Marines that were killed yesterday in the hollow of his Hand.

And, may He protect our country for those who would destroy us, both those living among us and those dwelling in foreign lands. 

Until He Comes,
