Has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants?

Something to think about...
Is this not the normal procedure?  A crime is committed, the criminal identified, the criminal is arrested, then brought to trial and punishment declared.  Even if the crime were not committed, you could be arrested for conspiracy to commit a crime.  Has not Obama committed a crime?  Should he be arrested?  Yes, impeachment can follow his trial!  No man is above the law!
Commentary by Norman E. Hooben 
When elected officials are accused of crimes of any nature (or conduct unbecoming of the office) the initial response is a denial and generally no one goes to jail (i.e. Bill Clinton’s “I did not have sex with that woman.”).  We won’t discuss the crimes that these pillars of society may be suspicious of because the way they cover their tracks it only leads to more suspicion without definitive proof (i.e. the Bill and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in Vince Foster’s death and other unsolved murders).  On rare occasions there is enough evidence against the perpetrator that he or she will resign from the office they were elected to serve.  This occurred with former Vice President of the United States, Spiro Agnew.  Agnew was caught (apparently, red-handed) collecting kick-back payments from some real estate transactions:
Throughout the fall of 1973 Agnew maintained his innocence.  He explored the possibility of taking his case to the House of Representatives and starting the impeachment process in order to avoid an indictment. By October 1973 Agnew and his lawyers were aware that the government had a very strong case. Privately, according to Agnew, the Nixon White House pressured him to resign.  Multiple individuals testified that they had paid kickbacks to Agnew during his tenures as County Executive, Governor, and Vice President. On October 10, 1973 Agnew resigned the vice presidency and pled nolo contendere (“no contest”) to tax evasion at U.S. Federal Court in Baltimore.  A judge sentenced Agnew to three years’ probation and a $10,000 fine. See Spiro Agnew and the Golden Age of  Corruption in Maryland Politics
Agnew gets off scot-free (Without consequences or penalties.)…the $10,000 fine was miniscule compared to the kick-backs and ‘probation’ is not a punishment, just a warning.  Compare the politic elite with the average citizen and you have the average Joe getting caught and serving hard time in such places as Lompoc Federal Prison (I brought this up because I personally know of such a case.).
Now we have a so-called President of the United States breaking the law and not even the smartest among the elected have any clue as to what to do about it.  We can even hear some of them repeating that famous line from Theodore Roosevelt, “No man is above the law.”  While the perpetrator himself brags openly that he will act without the consent of Congress.

I will not rehash all the laws Obama has broken but I will remind the people (and the Congress) that there is already a law on the books that should be enforced immediately concerning the aiding and abetting of illegal aliens.  And if no man is above the law then Obama should be arrested immediately…not impeached, arrested! Here’s a quick glimpse at the law:
The Law (see complete summary below)
Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry. Subsection 1324(a)(3).
The Penalty
Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both.

Ex-border agents: Immigrant flood 'orchestrated'
'We are not gullible enough to believe thousands came without aid and assistance'

An organization of former Border Patrol agents Wednesday charged that the federal government, under the administration of President Obama, is deliberately arranging for a flood of immigrant children to arrive in America for political purposes.
“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.
“Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government,” the officers said.
 “Anyone that has taken two six- to seven-year-old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States.”
Republicans are blaming Obama’s immigration policies for enticing the illegals, particularly the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program launched in 2012, which recently was renewed.
More than 33,000 have been caught in Texas alone over the last eight months, the report said, overwhelming Border Patrol capabilities.
A federal judge even concluded the White House “has simply chosen not to enforce … border security laws.”
FoxNews.com reported this week Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer calls the situation a “creation” of the federal government, and Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., assigned blame for the “calamity” to Obama.
Fox News reported it had obtained a memo from an official with Customs and Border Protection who said the current policies are serving as an incentive for illegal aliens to sneak into the U.S.
“If the U.S. government fails to deliver adequate consequences to deter aliens from attempting to illegally enter the U.S., the result will be an even greater increase in the rate of recidivism and first-time illicit entries,” said Ronald Vitiello, a deputy Border Patrol chief.
Officials say among Obama’s policies that are attracting illegals is his instructions for “deferred action” for young illegals. Recently, the federal government said it was hunting for lawyers to provide legal help to children who are in the U.S. illegally.
The White House is asking for $1.4 billion more for the illegal-alien children, which by some estimates will grow to 150,000 next year.
The former Border Patrol agents said the campaign is a “political deception,” and the responsibility rests with the political leaders who support “a path to citizenship, regularization or any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens before providing for full protections for national security (jobs and economy) and public safety (the right of the people to be secure in their property and person).





The officers argue that the non-enforcement of immigration laws is “the next step in becoming a failed state.”
“Yes, our leaders are guilty. However, we are responsible because it is the American voter [who] has placed untrustworthy people in positions of power and kept them there when they have clearly demonstrated that they have violated that public trust.
“These successful con artists are well dressed, attractive and charming,” the statement said.
The officers even questioned whether “this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children [will] finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties.”
“Has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy? Obviously, this administration thinks you are as corrupt as they are and will vote them back into office or these young children would not be streaming into America to tug at your hearts and empty your heads of reason,” the statement said.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest this week said the Federal Emergency Management Agency is leading an effort to respond to the illegal alien children arriving in the U.S. He said many are “escaping abuse or persecution” and are being sent to locations in Texas and Oklahoma.

 1907 Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) Offenses
Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry. Subsection 1324(a)(3).
Alien Smuggling -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien.
Domestic Transporting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.
 Harboring -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.
Encouraging/Inducing -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who -- encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.
Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.
Bringing Aliens to the United States -- Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of any official action which may later be taken with respect to such alien.
The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any 12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See this Manual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).
Unit of Prosecution -- With regard to offenses defined in subsections 1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.
Knowledge -- Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless disregard of alienage is sufficient.
Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment is provided for third or subsequent offenses.
COMMENT: Further discussion of offenses defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a) is set forth in Chapter 3 of Immigration Law, published as part of the Office of Legal Education's Litigation Series, and as part of the USABook computer library.

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know... Chuck Hagel, the unreliable Secretary of Defense!


According to a previous Secretary of Defense that office is "deeply informed" and with that said we should rely on the Secretary to fulfill his role as a member of the President's Cabinet.  That role is stated by White House protocol as "...the Cabinet's role is to advise the President on any subject he may require relating to the duties of each member's respective office."  So why is it that the current Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, knows little or nothing about any subject that clearly falls under his office when asked by members of Congress?  One wonders why smart people can be so dumb.  Check out these videos... absolutely amazing! ~ Norman E.

Historic Event At The Vatican ~ Does the Pope have any clue what he is doing?

Updated...see Update below...
 
Before reading the following post let me re-iterate a few points…although many may be receiving them for the first time. 
Most…and that's definitely the right word, Americans have no clue that the world is evolving into a state of demise.  And most will not wake up in time to prevent the tribulation that’s sure to follow.  Yet many will claim that it’s all a conspiracy theory.
When events happen I think it fair to say that such and such a happening is indeed a fact.  You saw it, I saw it, many others witnessed it, and nobody could conceivably deny it, therefore it’s a fact.  And why is it that when an event is predicted (prophesy) the world generally ignores it?
Well here it is 2014 and back in 1846 (That’s 168 years ago!) the following warning was revealed in an apparition by Our Lady, the Mother of God:
All the governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principle, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds...
Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George Herbert Walker Bush, to name a few, are all advocates for a one world government…one and the same plan…the new world order!  We could easily add a number of so-called world leaders from other countries as well but I don’t want to be here all day naming names.
Barack Obama, although not widely known for his singularly world view, is most definitely doing all that he can to abolish all religions other than Islam…and if you don’t know this by now it proves my “no clue” comment above is correct. ~ Norman E. Hooben
Ps: If I was a cussing man I’d shout out, “Mother of God! Why don’t you believe this stuff?
Also: I have additional comments here: http://clashdaily.com/2014/06/holy-crap-vatican-host-islamic-prayers-first-time-ever/

The following from: Al Arabiya News
Islamic prayers to be held at the Vatican
Staff writer, Al Arabyia News ~ Friday, 6 June 2014
For the first time in history, Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran will be heard at the Vatican on Sunday, in a move by Pope Francis to usher in peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Francis issued the invitation to Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit last week to Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority.
Abbas, Peres, and Francis will be joined by Jewish, Christian and Islamic religious leaders, a statement released by Peres’s spokesperson said, according to the Times of Israel.
Holy See officials on Friday said the evening prayers would be a “pause in politics” and had no political aim other than to rekindle the desire for Israeli-Palestinian peace at the political and popular level, according to the Associated Press. ...full story continues here
But before you go...
Does the pope have any clue? East is east, and west is west and never the two shall meet.
Pope Frances, "Do you know what that means?" I don't want to sound disrespectful but wake the hell up!
Update...
Refers back to my question, "Does the Pope have any clue what he is doing?"
The answer is, "No!"  Read the following excerpt:
The Vatican failed in an attempt to cover up the contents of a prayer by a Muslim cleric at an interfaith "Prayer for Peace" service held in the Vatican garden on June 8. Departing from a pre-approved script, the imam recited verses 284-286 of Sura 2 from the Koran, the latter part of which calls on Allah to grant Muslims victory over non-Muslims.
Most non-Muslims non-Arabic speakers did not understand what the imam had said, but that changed when a former Muslim who speaks Arabic translated the full prayer on the indispensable blog, Gates of Vienna. The Vatican initially denied that the imam had said what he said, but then it doctored the video to edit out last part of Verse 2:286.
Gates of Vienna posted a complete video of the imam's prayer, which does indeed (3m54s into the video) ask Allah to "make us victorious over the tribe of the unbelievers." In an interview with Radio Vatican, a German-speaking Jesuit priest named Felix K├Ârner remained unbowed.  Source
