Jeremiah Wright: I ‘Made It Comfortable’ For Obama To Accept Christianity Without Having To Renounce His Islamic Background
By Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit – “In a shocking interview yesterday on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama’s former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam.
The Daily Caller reported:
Klein also said Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.
Here is Ed Klein on Hannity talking about his interview with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Klein spoke more on this in a separate interview with NewsMax:
Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.
“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”
The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?
“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.
Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.
“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.
The second area was Obama’s political philosophy. Wright introduced Obama to Black Liberation theology.
Nice! Unfortunately, CAIR is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood has members working in the pro-Islam Obama Administration. The pro-Islam Obama Administration apparently wields heavy influence in the decision making process at the “Justice Department.” And when it comes to Islamist influence in America, the “Justice Department” has decided to do absolutely nothing …
By Caroline May – “The Department of Justice is being encouraged to follow in the footsteps of the FBI in cutting off all non-investigative ties to the country’s largest Muslim advocacy organization, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The Fiscal Year 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations Bill, which passed the House on Wednesday, contains in its Committee Report (a separate public document that spells out how agencies are expected to spend the money allocated to them) a recommendation that Attorney General Eric Holder follow in the FBI’s footsteps and sever ties with CAIR:
Liaison partnerships.—The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case in which the Holy Land Foundation was found guilty of material support of a terrorist organization. The committee acknowledges the attorney general’s refusal to attend certain meetings knowing that CAIR officials would be present, as indicated in testimony before the committee on February 28, 2012. The committee understands that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has an existing policy prohibiting its employees from engaging in any formal non-investigative cooperation with CAIR. The committee encourages the attorney general to adopt a similar policy for all department officials.
In January 2009, the FBI ended its relationship with CAIR and its affiliates across the country due to the conviction of those involved in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist funding trial, in which CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator.
Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, the bill’s sponsor, explained to The Daily Caller that with the FBI’s policy already in place it makes sense for DOJ to follow suit.
‘The FBI has that policy now, and I think it’s a good policy — they were an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case. We also commend the attorney general for not meeting with them,” Wolf said. “We think it ought to be a policy. If the FBI has that policy, I think the entire Justice Department should have it.’
The DOJ declined to comment about the recommendation, though Wolf explained that they will likely apply the policy.
‘I expect they will comply [with the recommendation],’ Wolf said. ‘I’d be surprised if they didn’t comply.’” I wouldn’t be. Read more.
By Barbara Starr, CNN – “It couldn’t come at a more delicate time in the Middle East. No one will say it publicly, but the Eager Lion 2012 exercise – and the 12,000 multinational forces gathering in Jordan – are sending a not-so-quiet message to others in the region: they are ready for whatever comes.
From now until the end of May, one of the largest multinational military exercises the region has seen is taking place in Jordan. There are more than 19 nations, including the United States and a number of Arab and European allies, gathering to practice their combat skills, just in case.
Several U.S. military officials say while it’s not the primary intention, the exercise is meant to be noticed by Syria and Iran especially. The message: even with the United States out of Iraq, and winding up the war in Afghanistan, there is a formidable U.S. presence in the region, and other countries are capable of filling in the gaps.
The U.S. Navy already is keeping two aircraft carriers in the next-door Persian Gulf region, and stepping up the presence of minesweepers in those waters. The Air Force has sent half a dozen F-22 fighters to the United Arab Emirates. The Joint Special Operations Command has conducted several deadly drone strikes against al Qaeda in Yemen.
But Eager Lion is taking it one step further. Marines will train in southern Jordan on their amphibious landing and warfare skills. But there will also be a number of the most elite U.S. Special Operations troops, training with Jordanian special forces units in counterterrorism and other assault operations.
The exercise is part of the overall U.S. military strategy to support Jordan as that country grows increasingly concerned about the unrest across its northern border with Syria. Jordanian officials are especially concerned about the potential for Syria to forces tens of thousands of its Palestinian refugees into Jordan, as well as Syrians escaping the fighting.
There is concern in a worst case scenario that the Syrian regime could lose control of some of its chemical or biological weapons stocks and they could somehow illicitly come into Jordan.
So a major portion of the exercise will also be devoted to training together on dealing with refugee flows and managing a chemical or biological weapons crisis.
But publicly, Jordanian officials say the exercise is not about their neighbor to the north.
‘This has nothing to do with Syria. We respect the sovereignty of Syria. There is no tension between the Syrians and us. Our objectives are clear.’ Major General. Awni el-Edwan, Chief of staff of the Jordanian Operations and Training Armed Forces. ‘No forces will be deployed north of the 32nd parallel. The exercise is not connected to any real world event.’
Officials quietly acknowledge all U.S. military training in the region now could be useful in the event of action against Iran.” Read more.
China: Roads Blocked, Houses Collapse, Farmland Destroyed As Violent Hailstorm Kills 40 In Northwest China
The local government says in just one hour, the torrential downpour killed residents and left dozens more injured or missing.
Tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee from their homes after rain and hail battered Min county on Thursday.
Authorities have dispatched large numbers of tents and beds to the stricken area, but they have conceded many people still need relief supplies.
Xinhua news agency reported the storm ‘wreaked havoc’ on all of the county’s 18 townships and affected more than two-thirds of its 450,000 residents
“Roads were blocked, houses collapsed, farmland was destroyed, and the power supply and telecommunications services were disrupted by the extreme weather,” the agency said, quoting Xu Guangyao, a senior county official.
A bridge in Hunan province has also collapsed after days of torrential rain across the country.
It is not known how many people were on the bridge when it buckled and fell into the river.
Fire department official Su Tao told Xinhua that witnesses say they saw people falling into the water when the bridge collapsed.
He says firefighters have not rescued anyone yet but some people have managed to climb ashore.
Hailstorms in the central province of Hunan have killed six people and left one missing, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
Since May 8, hailstorms have struck across the province, affecting 3.42 million people, the ministry said.
About 64,000 people have been relocated to safer areas and 7,600 houses have collapsed.” Source – Australia Network News.
US Army General Warns Of Impending Fukushima Doom, Physicist: Unit 2 Uranium Core 100% Liquified, ‘We Have Never Seen This Before In The History Of Nuclear Power’
PRWeb – “Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III (US Army Ret.), President of the Natural Solutions Foundation, an international NGO (non-governmental organization), released a 27 minute public service Estimate of Situation about Fukushima, Japan focusing on the immediate threat to the Northern Hemisphere emanating from the highly radioactive ruins of the 5 Fukushima nuclear reactors. The video is available without charge at http://www.GeneralBert.com.
Gen. Stubblebine’s prognosis is dire: ‘When the highly radioactive Spent Fuel Rods are exposed to air, there will be massive explosions releasing many times the amount or radiation released thus far. Bizarrely, they are stored three stories above ground in open concrete storage pools. Whether through evaporation of the water in the pools, or due to the inevitable further collapse of the structure, there is a severe risk. United States public health authorities agree that tens of thousands of North Americans have already died from the Fukushima calamity. When the final cataclysm occurs, sooner rather than later, the whole Northern Hemisphere is at risk of becoming largely uninhabitable.’
General Stubblebine details in his riveting video the amounts of radioactive materials that will be propelled across the Pacific and across the United States if the Fukushima reactor structures (especially Spent Fuel Pool Number 4) collapse. With over 15,000 ‘spent fuel rods’ on the site, the Fukushima reactors have accumulated one of the largest stockpiles of these dangerous, intensely radioactive materials on the planet. No remediation work is being done at the site; there is no official remedial planning or disaster preparation. No private remediation, or public discussion of the need for it, is permitted by the Government of Japan under its new suppression of nuclear discussion laws.
The Natural Solutions Foundation joins seventy Japanese NGOs(1) in calling upon the Secretary General of the United Nations and Prime Minister of Japan last month to coordinate emergency action to shore-up critical structures now at imminent risk of collapse. It has been variously estimated(2), that a relatively mild earthquake (i.e., 5.0 or greater on the Richter Scale) will collapse the previously damaged Spent Fuel Rod holding tank of Unit No. 4, containing 85 times the amount of radioactive Cesium137 contained in Chernobyl’s now-entombed reactor. An estimated 1Million Europeans are believed to have died as a direct result of that radiation emission following the nuclear explosion of Chernobyl.
The US Government’s statistics document an excess death rate of 20,000 US residents, mostly healthy infants, in the first 9 months following the multiple nuclear events at Fukushima.” Read more.
Dr. Michio Kaku, Physicist: Unit 2 completely liquified, 100% liquification of uranium core — “We’ve never seen this before in the history of nuclear power” – “The Fukushima reactor is on a knife’s edge … we could have a disaster much worse, many times worse, than Chernobyl … Unit 2, we now know, completely liquified. We have never seen this before in the history of nuclear power, a 100% liquification of a uranium core… Unit 4, on the other hand, has an even worse problem, and that is it’s a spent fuel pond that is totally uncovered because of a hydrogen gas explosion that took place last year. There are 1,500 rods that could be exposed to the air and then set off another spent fuel pond with 6,000 rods. All together there are 11,000 rods in the Fukushima site that could be tipped over, slight earthquake, slight explosion could set the whole reactor back into motion.” Listen to full radio interview.
