Why Is The Corrupt Obama Media Not Investigating How Our Sailors Were So Easily Taken By Iranian Islamist?

Because, as usual, the media doesn't want to know . . . or worse even for you to know. - Webmaster

Iranian coup: A Tale Of Two U.S. Navy Vessels

By William Hamilton, Ph.D., Central View, January 18, 2016

 

Last week, the U.S. Navy dispatched two of its fearsomely armed Riverine Command Boats (RCBs) to patrol between Kuwait and Bahrain. Somehow, the RCBs were seized by the Iranian Navy; the crew members arrested, and -- even though the U.S. and Iran are not technically at war -- treated as Prisoners of War (POWs). How could this happen?

The Swedish-designed, U.S.- manufactured RCBs cost $2.8 million per copy. Each RCB carries six machine guns, to include a .50 caliber Gatling gun, plus grenade launchers. Covered with armor plating able to deflect AK-47 fire, the RCB’s 49.4 mile-per-hour top speed means RCBs can outrun every known surface warship.

To guard against surprise attack, RCBs carry the Sea FLIR III infrared sensor system, thermal imaging, a laser rangefinder, and long-range radar. Navigation is by a top-of-the line GPS and chart plotter system, along with traditional chart and compass back-up. The RCB’s world-wide communications gear nets with ships, aircraft, and ground forces.

Operating in pairs, the RCBs provide each other with mutual fire support. If one RCB is disabled, the other RCB can tow it to safety. Thus, the question arises: How could two RCBs lose their ability to navigate at the same time and stray into Iranian waters? And how could two world-class weapons platforms be seized by the, arguably, inferior Iranian Navy?

Apparently, one of the RCBs had a propulsion problem and radioed U.S. 5th Fleet in Bahrain for assistance. Congressman Louis Gohmert (R) of Texas claims the Obama White House intervened, asked the Iranian Navy to provide assistance, and ordered the U.S. 5th Fleet to stand down.

By long-standing naval custom, disabled boats found in territorial waters are rendered assistance, and simply escorted back into international waters. Their crews are not subjected to POW treatment or put on world-wide video display, looking like criminals.

But, instead of being treated as distressed vessels exercising the mariners’ right of innocent passage, the Iranians arrested the crew members, treated them as POWs, and, somehow, got the officer-in-charge to make filmed statements praising the Iranians and saying the treatment the crew received was: "Fantastic."

Absent Congressman Gohmert’s explanation -- citing White House intervention -- it appears Articles II and V of the U.S. military’s Code of Conduct were violated. Article II states: "I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist." Article V reads: "When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the best of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause."

Alternatively, could it be that the White House-imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) robbed the RCBs of their "means to resist"? Were the RCB’s awesome weapons even permitted to be loaded? Congress should demand to see the Operations Order under which the two RCBs left Kuwait for Bahrain and demand copies of all the communications between the RCBs, U.S. 5th Fleet, and the White House. Meanwhile, the RCB crews are left twisting in the wind.

What Happens When Progressives Are Allowed To Elect A Crotch-Salute Radical To Run America

Obama's hand placement during the playing of the Naitonal Anthem at a 2007 Democrat summer fundraiser in Iowa has been named by some in the military, "The Obama Crotch Salure."

Stunning photos for the WORLD and our enemies to see under Obama's watch.

Have You Been Noticing The Continued Fundamental Change To America Under This Crotch Salute President?

 

San Diego Barred From Uttering 'Biased' Term 'Founding Fathers'

"City workers in San Diego have been warned ahead of President's Day [reported coming from Mayor Kevin Faulconer] not to drop any F-bombs -- as in the phrase "Founding Fathers."  The traditional reference to America's patriotic patriarchs is considered gender biased, and a city manual banning the term was reinforced this week with verbal orders, according to legal watchdog group, Pacific Justice Institute." - FOXNews

"That’s one of many startling conclusions reached by a new manual the city has issued for written and oral communication by its employees. In a section on “Bias-Free Language,” the City instructs workers to eliminate from their vocabulary a number of words and phrases considered gender biased, including “the common man,” “manmade,” “man up” and many others.

As one example, the guidelines note that “founding fathers” is also problematic and should be replaced with “founders.” The city further urges employees preparing official reports to disregard or paraphrase research that contains such biased language." - PacificJustice

Note

The above news story is proof that the progressive gay agenda was NEVER about gay marriage. It was about fundamentally changing the United States of America itself through political correctness at all levels of society. For instance allowing a boy, who says he is a girl, to then have 100% access into the girl's changing rooms, which is now happening at high schools across America.

How can this happen? It's simple. Since American voters fell for Obama's line of hope and change "hook, line and sinker," these elected Democrats now have control by holding back taxpayer money for those who do not obey.

This is how it works.

If a school does not obey the male student who says he is a girl, the Obama Regime in Washington D.C. will hold back the school's operating budget of promised tax dollars until the boy is allowed into the girl's dressing rooms.

Can anyone say Fascism Comes to America? It proves again that only a society that comes from a Republic can protect its citizen's free speech, while a democracy is easily be run by thugs. - Webmaster

The Progressive Media Aggressively Intimidates Anyone Who Refers To Obama As A Muslim President

Obama did not refer to his Muslim ties with radical Muslims during the 2008 election, yet while calling himself a Christian was ABLE to sing the Muslim Call to Prayer perfectly in front of an editor of the New York Times. And don't forget in 2007 Obama honored the playing of our nation's National Anthem with his hands over his crotch, some in the military calling it his "crotch salute."

Then suddenly when he becomes president, Obama goes overseas on what some called his "apology tour," giving a speech in Cairo meant for all Muslim Nations to hear. In that speech Obama said it was now the job of the office of U.S. President to ensure Muslims would not be discriminated against in Western countries around the world, giving the excuse that Muslims who were killing Jews and Christians were not Muslims, only pretending to be.

He also made it very clear that Muslims must have the right to practice their religion in Western countries "as they see fit," which includes Sharia Law.

Yet after seven years in office, saying moderate Muslims were the key to peace for Islam, Obama has literally refused to meet even once with the president of the largest moderate Muslim organization in America, Zuhdi Jasser, who was also a former U.S. Navy commander.

So he has lied about his care for our freedoms since running as a candidate in 2007 up to 2016, shown below.

 

 

Do You Still Need More Proof?

 

"Here's a topic for conversation, especially among Sophians, as Sophia University is a Jesuit (also Catholic!) University like Georgetown. Compare the picture above with the picture below... Do you see any difference in the background/setting?" - brittonia.blogspot, April 22, 2009.

When Obama was speaking to the world on all the TV networks in his 2009 speech at Georgetown University, he showed Muslims around the world his rejection of Christianity by mocking Christ with the American people and mainstream media doing nothing to prevent it.

How did Obama do it?

This symbol of Christ above Obama's head, [see photo on the left], would be fully covered with a black cloth as it sat high above Obama while the cameras rolled. This is a man who calls himself a Christian, remembering he could have chosen somewhere else to speak to avoid the covering of Christ with darkness. But he didn't. And that's the point. Now look below how Obama handled a speech where instead a graphic figure of Mohammed was also hanging above him as he spoke - Webmaster

 

"What a bizarre world the left lives in. Obama will console Muslims who he feels have been scapegoated and stereotyped due to the actions of terrorists, but he’ll never console the Christians the terrorists are killing." - Allen B. West Seven years later Obama would choose to speak at a Mosque, reported to have had radical speakers in the past. But look what is high above Obama's head. It is a symbol for Mohammed. And look was is missing. A black cloth.

 

And guess who would not attend the rally by leaders from Western countries in Paris to protest the murder by Muslim terrorists of French cartoonists who had mocked Mohammed. It was the U.S. President, Barack Obama, a president with a Muslim name raised in a Muslim home and taught the Islamic Koran on foreign soil for a reported four years by his Muslim father. I had reported that if Obama had attended the rally it might have looked like this- Webmaster

 

And For Those Who Think FOX News Is The Answer to Fair And Balance In This Election

Watch Donald Trump only mouth a naughty word in jest.

Below is FOX News that ran the same video. EXCEPT in this case FOX News put a deliberate bleep over where Trump had only mouthed the word, giving the impression to its viewers that Donald had actually said the word to his audience. And FOX News complains about MSNBC edits? Gretchen Carlson had a grin on her face when Trump asked her why the bleep when he never said the word?

The host said nothing, only smiled. - Source: News Foxes
