We need your help in locating a new venue., our North Orange County Veterans Club is closing its doors. We have not only lost a wonderful place for local veterans to gather, but also an ideal monthly meeting venue.

DHS Whistleblower Philip Haney: P.C. Killed Investigation That Might Have Stopped San Bernardino Attack by John Hayward on Dec 11, 2015
Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney gave an extensive interview to Breitbart News Daily on Friday morning, in which he discussed an investigation that might have stopped the San Bernardino jihad attack… but was scuttled by Homeland Security brass for politically-correct reasons.
“Civil Rights and Civil Liberties shut the case down because we were focusing on individuals who belong to Tablighi Jamaat,” Haney says, well-aware of how explosive this charge is.
Haney was a founding member of the Passenger Analysis Unit, or PAU, under Customs and Border Protection. Established as a stand-alone agency in 2003, the PAU is charged with “vetting, investigating, finding addresses, making connections, and putting the dots together” on persons entering the United States who might be security threats.

San Bernardino Shooting: Neighbors Too Politically Correct? by Ben Boychuk on Dec 09, 2015
San Bernardino used to be called “The Friendly City.” That was a long time ago, well before the municipal bankruptcy and the recession and the housing market collapse and the blight. The city still had Norton Air Force Base and the economic prosperity that came with it. The nickname — which was really more of a […]
WHAT IS OUR GOVERNMENT DOING TO PROTECT US?
From U.S Representative Ed Royce District Update:
Nationally, Chairman Royce Supports Tightening of Visa Waiver Program on Dec 11, 2015
This week, Rep. Royce, who is Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, voted in favor of the Visa Waiver Improvement Act of 2015. The legislation passed the House.
“Today we know that up to 5,000 Europeans have traveled to Syria and Iraq to fight alongside ISIS. We can’t allow these foreign fighters easy access to the United States,” said Chairman Royce.
“This bipartisan, common-sense bill will bolster our defenses. It will ensure that those who’ve traveled to a terror hotspot receive thorough background checks before being cleared to travel to the U.S. And it will give our law enforcement new tools to detect fraud and stolen passports. The Visa Waiver Program is good for America’s economy and good for our leadership overseas. We must strengthen it by shutting it to those who would do us harm. I urge the Senate to take up this important legislation quickly, and send it to the president’s desk,” he concluded.
Chairman Royce, a cosponsor of the legislation, spoke in support of the bill on the House floor shortly before the vote. Watch video of his remarks here:
Foreign Affairs Committee and Chairman Royce Pass Anti-ISIS Measures on Dec 11, 2015
Earlier this week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep. Royce, passed two bipartisan measures to step up efforts to defeat and destroy ISIS. Specifically, the measures provide arms to the Kurdish forces on the ground fighting ISIS and require a U.S. strategy to combat terrorists’ use of social media.
On passage of the bills to help combat ISIS, Chairman Royce said: “This Committee is taking important steps to confront the grave threats posed by ISIS and other terrorist organizations. Kurdish forces are some of our most dedicated and effective allies in the fight against ISIS, yet they are on the frontlines without the quantity and quality of arms and equipment they need. This legislation cuts through the bureaucratic tape to get arms, training and medicine directly to Kurdish forces.
“Additionally, in the wake of the horrific shooting in San Bernardino, the Obama administration needs to get serious about targeting terrorists’ use of social media. Extremist groups are using Twitter, Facebook and YouTube across borders to recruit, radicalize and encourage attacks on our free society. Today’s legislation presses the administration to lay out a plan to combat terrorists’ hijacking of social networks.”
H.R. 1654, authored by Chairman Royce, authorizes the direct provision of defense articles, defense services, and related training to the Kurdistan Regional Government.
H.R. 3654, the Combat Terrorist Use of Social Media Act of 2015, requires a report on United States strategy to combat terrorist use of social media.
NOCCC’s Food for Thought
While we should value the U. S. Constitution before allowing fear to cloud our judgment, we are reminded of Benjamin Franklin’s warning: “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
On the other hand, whether or not you support Trump, let’s be fair. When we hear the media and elected officials from both the left and the right, ridicule Trump for his “ban on Muslim immigration” comment, a little reminder of history might be in order.
During the Iran hostage crisis, President Jimmy Carter, an Icon to liberals and the left, broke off all diplomatic relations with Iran and announced four steps be taken immediately: 1. Effective midnight that day, kick out all Iranian diplomats and college students, 2. Cut off all exports to Iran (assume includes food & medicine), 3. Inventory & seize Iranian money and assets and, 4. Shut down ALL Iranian immigration. Carter also stated that if hostages were not released, more steps would be taken.
Special Note: We know that we can look forward to more Bond Measures next election. By attaching more fees onto our property taxes, these enormous and unnecessary loans on the backs of taxpayers are just sneaky end runs around Prop 13. Everyone who is a resident of North Orange County or owns a home or commercial property will be effected by these tax increases.
NOCCC has started a PAC where we can all donate so we can fight and defeat these Bond Measures at the ballot box!
NOCCC wants to inform you and encourage you to GET INVOLVED so we can influence all of our OC cities to support LIMITED GOVERNMENT, ECONOMIC LIBERTY AND FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY!
