Strategy? What Strategy?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 8/28/2014 9:26:15 PM     Post Reply
President Obama gave a press conference today, in which the prime topic was ISIL. Obama’s constant theme was that we don’t have a strategy to deal with the terrorist organization that has been rampaging across Syria and Iraq for months. A transcript of the press conference is here: I’ll be meeting with my National Security Council again this evening as we continue to develop that strategy. And I’ve been consulting with members of Congress, and I’ll continue to do so in the days ahead. … And in order for us to degrade ISIL over the long term, we’re going to

Last month, AFP reported that the Islamic State had established a marriage bureau to help jihadists find brides. It was a troubling sign that ISIL and its self-proclaimed caliphate believed it would be around for a while. Since then, the group has been digging in: In the Syrian city of Raqqah on the banks of the Euphrates River, Islamic State militants are busy building a capital fit for their followers. Human rights observers say they have stoned women to death for adultery, while residents report that religious textbooks have been imported for schools and the market flooded with black cloaks

WH Clarifies Obama’s ‘We Don’t
Have a Strategy’ Comment: We
Have One, Just Not in Syria
National Review Online, by Andrew Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 8/28/2014 9:18:01 PM     Post Reply
Within a couple hours of President Obama’s telling reporters that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for taking on the Islamic State, White House press secretary Josh Earnest clarified that President Obama does have a strategy, or at least part of one. He told CNN that the White House has outlined an approach for addressing the Islamic State’s efforts in Iraq, but is still awaiting to hear back from the Pentagon on military options in Syria, which is what the president was referring to. In part, Earnest explained, the Pentagon is exploring a broader strategy beyond just American military involvement.

You’re looking at the biggest story involving the federal budget and a crucial one for the future of the American economy. Every year for the last six years in a row, the Congressional Budget Office has reduced its estimate for how much the federal government will need to spend on Medicare in coming years. The latest reduction came in a report from the budget office on Wednesday morning. The changes are big. The difference between the current estimate for Medicare’s 2019 budget and the estimate for the 2019 budget four years ago is about $95 billion. That sum is greater than the government is expected to spend that year on

Mark Levin was on “Hannity” tonight, where he slammed President Barack Obama for ignoring ISIS. Sean Hannity remarked that it seems like ISIS has declared war on the United States. “These cockroaches organized, funded themselves, built a forceful military, started conquering geographic areas all around the world, under [Obama’s] nose. He ignored it. He did nothing about it. He didn’t talk to the American people about it—as a matter of fact, he downplayed it. This is one of the worst military, national security screw ups in modern American history,” Levin said. Levin called Obama “a peculiar, petulant man” with a thin resume

Jon Stewart has no idea what happened in Ferguson, MO, but pretends he does. And according to the Washington Post and much of the media, that´s how Stewart ObliteratedDestroyedBlastedDemolishedShredded Fox News. Let his trained seals in the media clap. The bottom line to Jon Stewart´s rant is that he believes that waiting for facts is racism. Somehow… Stewart just knows Michael Brown put his hands up. Stewart just knows racism was behind the shooting of Michael Brown. Stewart just knows the shooting of Michael Brown was unjustified. Stewart just knows that Al Sharpton´s symbolic summits in Chicago are enough. Stewart just knows that America´s racial grifters

The ‘We Can’t Wait’ Clause

Unlike most American presidents, Barack Obama took his inaugural oath of office twice, the latter affirmation serving as a private belt-and-braces remedy to a verbal mistake, the former as the usual public spectacle. Four years later, he repeated the trick, promising fealty first during an exclusive White House ceremony, and then, a day later, before the nation at large. Thus did our 44th president bring to a remarkable four the number of times that he had solemnly sworn to faithfully execute the Office, and, to the best of his ability, to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United

After wrapping up questions at his press conference today, President Obama returned to the podium to answer a question from a reporter about his strategy on acting on immigration. Obama explained that although “hope springs eternal” that Congress would address immigration reform, he felt that he had to act to make the system better. “We’ve had a lot of stakeholder discussions, that set of proposals is being worked up,” he said, referring to several meetings at the White House with immigration activists and business leaders. Obama acknowledged the summer border crisis, admitting that it “changed the perception of the American people” about the

President Obama was referring only "to military options for striking" Islamist militants in Syria when he said the White House did not "have a strategy yet,” press secretary Josh Earnest insisted Thursday. The White House launched a full-court media press to clarify the president’s comments after the media and Republicans seized on the admission. In an interview with CNN, Earnest said Obama was only referring to potential military strikes within Syria."Those options are still being developed by the Pentagon," Earnest said. He added that Obama "was asked a specific question about what approach he was going to pursue about possible

President Barack Obama held a news conference Thursday to reveal important information regarding Russia financing and arming separatists in Ukraine, migrant children in the U.S. and his strategy for defeating the Islamic State in Syria, but all eyes seemed to focus on his suit. The president addressed the press in a pale, khaki-colored suit, and the Internet exploded. The suit prompted a slew of headlines criticizing the president for his fashion decision. "President Obama Shames America by Wearing Wack-Ass Tan Suit" reads the Gawker headline. "No One Heard Anything Obama Just Said Because His Tan Suit Was So Loud" reads

Judicial Watch reports that the Department of Justice is giving liberal activist groups money from a $16.6 billion settlement with Bank of America. The groups benefitting from the lawsuit, according to Investor’s Business Daily, are the National Council of La Raza, Operation Hope, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America. The money also went to “delinquent borrowers” in Chicago, Oakland, Detroit, Philadelphia, and other major “Democrat strongholds.” “This is a wealth redistribution scheme disguised as a lawsuit,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, told The Daily Caller. “And who benefits from the distribution?

Blueprint for water ‘control’?
Pol says EPA made secret maps

A top House Republican is charging that the Environmental Protection Agency secretly drafted highly detailed maps of U.S. waterways to set the stage for a controversial plan to expand regulatory power over streams and wetlands, a claim the EPA strongly denies. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, released those maps on Wednesday, while firing off a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy voicing concerns over why they were created in the first place. "These maps show the EPA´s plan: to control a huge amount of private property across the country. Given the astonishing

Government coercion of the financial sector to make irresponsible loans was the primary driver of the 2007-08 financial meltdown. Yet, as we’ve previously observed here, “Washington has searched every place but within for a scapegoat” – with the Obama Justice Department pursuing politically motivated investigations, prosecutions, and civil lawsuits against banks and credit rating agencies in order to concoct a history that blames predatory lending rather than statist policy. Now we learn that Eric Holder, the Tom Hagen of this racketeering enterprise of an administration, is using the vig that DOJ muscle is extorting from the banks to pour tens of

Nearly three weeks after an unarmed black teen was gunned down in a St. Louis suburb by a white police officer, sparking violent riots and a national conversation about race, Hillary Clinton finally broke her silence about the ongoing tension in Ferguson, Mo. "Watching the recent funeral for Michael Brown, as a mother, as a human being, my heart just broke for his family because losing a child is every parent´s greatest fear and an unimaginable loss,” the former Secretary of State said Thursday at a technology conference in San Francisco.

Iranian military leaders say that they have begun weapons deliveries to Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank and elsewhere in the region after months of promising increased military support for Israel’s enemies, according to regional reports. A top Iranian military commander confirmed that weapon shipments to the West Bank have already begun and that more will be sent to other “Palestinian resistance groups.” “Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region,” Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of Iran’s volunteer Basij force told the state-run Fars News Agency on Wednesday.

IRS data on internal migration showing how many people have moved to and from which states generally shows people leaving high-taxed states and states with high unemployment to states doing better in those categories. Now Obama´s IRS is seeking to delay release of these statistics for another 12 months. For decades economists and lawmakers both have used this IRS data as a marker for which states are succeeding in America, but the Obama administration has shown its disdain for this important metric. Obama´s IRS had once announced that it was going to discontinue to collect and release this data but

*UPDATE* – There is a distinct possibility the item next to Officer Wilson’s driver door is not a brass bullet casing, but might actually be the bracelet from the right arm of Dorian Johnson seen in the CCTV video of the Ferguson Liquor Mart – We’re currently flushing out that possibility, but it does look likely. We have now digested several thousand hours of assembled video -and still imagery- of the scene around the Mike Brown shooting. Here is what the physical evidence is showing so far.

California has suffered the loss of 63 trillion gallons (or 240 gigatons) of water in the past 18 months, which has resulted in the ground literally rising by an average of .15 inches since last year. The lack of water has also resulted in the movement of California´s mountains, where the uplift has been most pronounced. According to the journal Science and the Washington Post, the mountains have risen as high as half an inch. As California´s drought continues to hit the Golden State, it´s reservoirs have also been affected. The drought has left one of California´s largest reservoirs, Lake

A short while ago, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) expounded on his views on the Middle East in the Wall Street Journal. Since that apparently didn’t convince many people, he writes a nearly identical piece in the Journal this week, although now he doesn’t come flat out and say we shouldn’t choose sides between the Iraqi government and the Islamic State. (Now he concedes, “The Islamic State represents a threat that should be taken seriously.” How Obama-esque of him!) In both pieces, he perversely argues that the United States created the Islamic State by previous interventions.

The earliest people in the North American Arctic remained isolated from later arrivals to the region for millennia before vanishing more than 700 years ago, a new genetic analysis shows. The study, published online Thursday, also reveals that today´s Inuit and Native Americans of the Arctic are genetically distinct from the region´s first settlers. Inuit hunters in the Canadian Arctic have long told stories about a mysterious ancient people known as the Tunit, who once inhabited the far north. Tunit men, they recalled, possessed powerful magic and were strong enough to crush the neck of a walrus and singlehandedly haul
