Cornelius, N.C. – Today the Thom Tillis for U.S. Senate campaign began airing a new television ad, “Quiet,” which highlights the failures of Sen. Kay Hagan and President Obama to address growing national security threats across the globe.

On January 27, 2014, President Obama called the Islamic State a “jayvee team” and characterized the terrorist group’s actions as part of “local power struggles.”

Just weeks later, on February 11, 2014, Sen. Kay Hagan skipped a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on current and future threats to the national security of the United States. During the hearing, top intelligence officials warned about the threat of the Islamic State, and confirmed the goal of the terrorist organization was to create an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East.

SEN. JOE MANCHIN: “Iraq seems to be facing well-funded militants of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. How does the threat of resurgence of Al-Qaeda affiliates pose for the regional stability there?” MICHAEL T. FLYNN, DIRECTOR OF DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY: “I think it’s an increasing concern that we’re going to have to pay close attention to. Not only inside of Iraq but the whole region. The scale of what they are involved in now. Particularly the Al-Qaeda element in Iraq and the level of direction they’re having. The level of killing they’re doing inside that country is terrible.” (Armed Services Committee, “Global National Security Threats,” 2/11/14)

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: “Whether it’s core Al-Qaeda or affiliate, the goal is the same no matter what the name may be, is to drive the United States out of the Middle East and create an Islamic caliphate throughout the region. Is that the goal of all the organizations?” JAMES CLAPPER, DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE: “Yes.” (Armed Services Committee, “Global National Security Threats,” 2/11/14)

She does not care about

Meanwhile, Sen. Hagan neglected her job on the Armed Services Committee, skipping over half of full hearings in 2014, including the February 11 hearing where intelligence officials warned about the growing strength of ISIS. Over the last two years, Hagan has skipped 27 out of 50 full hearings.

“President Obama failed to take the threat of ISIS seriously at the same time Sen. Kay Hagan stayed quiet and skipped over half of her Armed Services Committee hearings that addressed vital national security issues,” said Thom Tillis. “While I support keeping all options on the table to completely destroy ISIS, the President and Kay Hagan still have no strategy and continue to lead from behind. This election presents the opportunity to reverse course on President Obama’s failed foreign policy and restore America’s standing in the world.”

“Quiet”

VO: In January, President Obama referred to the Islamic State as a “jayvee team.”

Days later, the Armed Services Committee holds a hearing on new global threats.

Senator Kay Hagan? Absent.

In fact, Hagan’s missed half the Armed Services Committee hearings this year.

While ISIS grew, Obama kept waiting and Kay Hagan kept quiet.

The price for their failure is danger. To change direction, we have to change our senator.

THOM TILLIS: I’m Thom Tillis, I approve this message.

Remember the UDO

This election is very important in Polk County. We HAVE to keep the majority at the Board of Commissioners. Some of you may have forgotten the Unified Development Ordinance in 2012. The U.D.O., as it was called, was conceived and developed under the democratic majority when Renee, Ray, and Cindy were in charge.

The U.D.O was the Polk County Democrats so-called “pass it to find out what was in it” legislation. It took the current county zoning laws and combined them with new laws that were going to make Polk County a “Sub-Division” with rules each resident had to abide by. Some of those new laws even changed current zoning laws to make them even more intrusive. For example, if you had a second building on your property that you let a child or grandparent live in or you  rented out, you would not be allowed to continue that practice under the new rule.

Saluda would find that most, if not all of the areas would fall under the Hilltop Ridge zone which would require certain building restrictions like color of home, square feet of home, and outside look of home.  Also, under the U.D.O guidelines, unelected officials hired by the town would be able to come onto your property to   inspect at any time with your approval

The U.D.O was one of the reasons why the Republicans won the majority with Owens, Gage, Holbert, and Pack. If we lose that majority, I would bet anything that Ray will bring the U.D.O out of the drawer, blow off the dust, and reintroduce it for a vote. TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PLEASE GET OUT THE VOTE!!!

Why ISIL, Not ISIS?

Posted: 08 Sep 2014 03:52 AM PDT

You may wonder, as I did, why President Obama and his administration refer to ISIS as ISIL.

As ISIS rose to power in Syria and Iraq over the last year or so, we consistently heard it referred to as ISIS for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

All of a sudden our President started referring to it as ISIL.

I understood where ISIS came from. What does ISIL stand for?

It turns out it is the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

What is the Levant?

It is a term used for centuries for the area shown in the map below.  The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey. It does not include Iraq.

In other words, Obama is effectively giving due recognition to the ambitions and dreams of these extreme Islamists for their caliphate by his use of the term ISIL.

Notice also that ISIL includes all of the territory of Israel, ISIS does not.

Consider this perspective from BeforeItsNews.com, which wonders about the President’s use of ISIL instead of ISIS.

Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective its all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.

The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!

It’s Israel.

When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.

With the exception of Reuters, no news organization was using the term ISIL until President Obama started to use it. However, it seems the ISIL label is being used more in the media thanks to the consistent use of it by our President and his administration. For example, the Associated Press recently started referring to ISIL instead of ISIS. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post still refer to the group as ISIS.

When has the President of the United States ever been so deferential to a sworn enemy of the United States?

ISIS is a group that has stated,

“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established and we will not stop.”

“We will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

We are a long way away from when President George Herbert Walker Bush (41) referred to Saddam Hussein leading up to and during the Gulf War as SAD-em rather than Suh-DOM, which was the accepted pronunciation of Hussein’s name. Bush clearly did this intentionally to get under Hussein’s skin in some way. It should be noted that he stopped pronouncing it this way when the war was over.

There was an ulterior motive. Does Barack Obama have his own motive in using ISIL, rather than ISIS?

Those who are regular readers of BeeLine know that I am not a conspiracy theorist. I draw my conclusions based on facts and analysis of those facts. However, in this case, it really does make you wonder what Obama is doing, doesn’t it?

The Diserter Exchange

Ah, the deserter exchange…

Regarding the deserter prisoner exchange, Obama recently spoke of three former Presidents. You may recall that a few weeks ago, President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, “much like this swap” he said convincingly.

CNSNews  carried this quote,

“This is what happens at the end of wars,” President Barack Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. “That was true for George Washington… That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back… And that’s the right thing to do.”    Really?

That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over.  Then again, he was educated at an Ivy league school so you can’t expect too much.

What’s wrong with his statements? Let’s keep it simple–

EVERYTHING is wrong!!!

George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783.  By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange.

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.

FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII.  Like Lincoln , he stayed dead after the war so he couldn’t do what this jerk says he did. You’ll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan , ending World War II.  He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary.

None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our “57 States” president.

It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars.

What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless.  Including the American Media!!!

How Harmful Is Fracking Anyway?

“While almost all of the fluid used in the hydraulic fracturing process is either water or sand, some people have raised questions about the blend of chemical additives that make up the rest of the fluid,” said report author Jon Sanders, JLF Director of Regulatory Studies. “What are the chemicals? How dangerous are they? How risky is it to inject them into the ground?

“The process of hydraulic fracturing is not intrinsically dangerous,” he said. “A growing consensus among energy companies, state regulators, academics, and environmentalists is that the safety issue rests in well construction. That is good news. It means safe drilling is achievable through proper regulation and companies’ due diligence.”

The chemicals added to water and sand serve a particular purpose in fracking, Sanders said. “The hydraulic fracturing process includes a blend of chemical additives used to condition the water, prevent well-casing corrosion, control the fluid pH levels, kill bacteria, and more.”

Most of these chemicals are also found in typical household products, including soaps, makeup, and hair-care products, Sanders added. “That means they are chemicals people already willingly encounter daily and safely,” he said. “They include chemicals used in consumer products for homes, pets, and yards.”
