(CTV News) On Wednesday, following the shooting rampage in Ottawa, Canada that left Canadian Hero Cpl Nathan Cirillo dead, Obama pledged to ensure national security efforts continue to be coordinated between the two countries and said:
“We have to remain vigilant when it comes to dealing with these kinds of acts of senseless violence or terrorism and I pledged as always to make sure that our national security are coordinated very closely–Not only is Canada one of our closest allies in the world but they’re are neighbors and our friends.”
Why can’t Obama bring himself to calling Monday’s Jihadist attack by a self-proclaimed ISIS supporter that left Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent dead, together with a second soldier seriously injured and Wednesday’s shooting rampage at Parliament in Ottawa Canada by an Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thug who shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the Jihadist terrorist attack, “Islamic” Terrorism?
VA Crisis “Culture of Corruption Persists” –Image: Geraldo@Twitter
(The Blaze) The Dept of Veteran Affairs last month, attempted to force one of their employees to execute a non-disclosure agreement and threatened him with disciplinary action, after the employee appeared on FOX News and criticized the ‘Veterans Administration’ for continuing to fail its mission to deliver health care to our American Heroes.
Scott Davis, a Program Specialist at the VA’s Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta and Whistleblower who had previously testified before Congress about the VA’s numerous failures.
Subsequent to Davis appearance on FOX News on the 02 September, Davis received an email just minutes later by William Lamm who asked Davis to appear at an ‘Administrative Investigation Board’ meeting for 04 September
Davis replied to the email the following day, that the White House Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is already investigating his Whistleblower case and said that the VA has already determined that the OSC investigation must be concluded before the VA could take any action against him.
“Therefore, I will have to decline your invitation to meet tomorrow,” Davis replied. “Mr. Lamm, I respectfully ask that you please stop contacting me about this matter.”
Subsequently, Lamm wrote back to Davis (continuing to harass him) that Davis had no choice but to attend the meeting–reminding him that refusing to testify on disciplinary matters “may be grounds for disciplinary action.”
While Lamm backed off his demand later that day in an email that said the VA wants to cooperate with the OSC and that the OSC wouldn’t be able to have an Agent attend the planned hearing.
The email exchange prompted Rep Mike Coffman (R-CO) to write a letter to VA Secy Robert McDonald about the VA’s efforts to silence Davis.
“Mr Davis recently indicated to my staff that he is receiving threatening emails regarding disciplinary action against him–Davis indicated he is being harassed and investigated and that human resource officials, have demanded that he sign a document without a VA or OMB identification control number, purporting to be a Notice of Witness Obligations, Protections and Privacy.”
“Please be assured that retaliation against VA employees that have provided Whistleblower information to Congress will not be tolerated–I request a response and explanation within five working days.”
Scott Davis and Congressional Aides said that they haven’t received a response from VA Secy Robert McDonald, more than a month subsequent to Rep Coffman’s letter being sent.

Obama Continues to Oppose Travel Ban From Ebola Ravaged Countries

(NBC New York) Medical workers at Univ Hospital in Newark, have isolated a sick Liberian airline passenger who traveled from Liberia to Brussels before arriving Tuesday into Newark, NJ on a United Airlines flight.
The Liberian man waited in line with other passengers at Customs when he was singled out for a health screening because of his recent travel history–that is when it was discovered, that he had a fever–its not clear if he had exhibited any other symptoms of the Ebola disease.
How many other possible Ebola sickened passengers have to arrive into the United States exposing countless Americans to the deadly disease, before Obama finally bans travel from Ebola ravaged West Africa as some 30 other nations have already done?
(AJC) Iran’s Stated Position Totally Incompatible With Any Nuclear Deal Regardless, Obama May Go Around Congress–Impose Deal With Iran
Wannabe King Obama Sees Deal With Iran to Avoid Congress
Cartoon: Legal Insurrection
(NY Times) Should an agreement be reached between the Obama Administration and Iran the Treasury Dept has concluded that Obama, has the authority to suspend the vast majority of sanctions imposed on Islamic Fascist Iran without seeking Congressional approval.
“We wouldn’t seek Congressional legislation in any comprehensive agreement for years,” said one Obama Administration official.
White House officials say that Congress should not be surprised by this plan (they’ve gone around Congress so many times already without consequence–I digress) pointing to testimony earlier this year when top negotiators argued that the best way to assure Iran complies with its obligations is a step-by-step suspension of sanctions.
“We’ve been clear that initially there would be suspension of any of the U.S. and international sanctions regime and that the lifting of sanctions will only come when the Intl Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verifies that Iran has met serious and substantive benchmarks,” said Bernadette Meehan, spokesperson of the Natl Security Council.
Meehan added, there “is a role for Congress in our Iran policy” but Members of Congress want a role larger than consultation and advice.
Many of the details of the negotiations with Iran remain cloaked in secrecy. Wendy Sherman, Under-Secy of State for Political Affairs had struck a deal with Congressional leaders that enables her to avoid public comment when negotiations are underway–Its time to rescind that deal.
In 2010 The Christian Science Monitor reported that the IAEA had sounded a note of caution about any of Iran’s claims that it isn’t interested in obtaining nuclear weapons adding that he couldn’t guarantee that all of the countries atomic activities are civilian and for peaceful purposes as Iran has long insisted.
According to the IAEA in September, Reuters reports that Iran had failed to address concerns about ‘suspected atomic bomb research’ by an agreed deadline and have implemented, just 3 of the 5 nuclear transparency steps that it was obligated by the 25 August, under a so-called ‘confidence building agreement’ it had reached with the IAEA last November–which the Obama Administration is ignoring.
The IAEA has observed through satellite imagery ‘ongoing construction activity’ at Iran’s Parchin military base–Officials believe that Iran once conducted explosive tests there of relevance in developing a nuclear weapon and has sought to “cleanse” it of evidence since then.
