Why The White House Ignored
All Those Warnings About ISIS

Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/6/2014 5:04:36 AM

Team Obama was told, over and over, that the Iraqi army couldn’t stop a terror group that was ready to pounce. But Washington was a prisoner to its paradox of an Iraq policy. On November 1, 2013, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited the White House, and made a rather stunning request. Maliki, who celebrated when the last U.S. troops left his country in 2011, asked Obama for American drone strikes on his country again; that’s how serious the threat from Sunni insurgents led by the extremist group ISIS had become. Twelve days later, Brett McGurk, a deputy assistant secretary of state

When your enemy is Tea Party Americans instead of Islamofascists, it can tend to muddle your thinking just a wee little bit..

Lets all not kid ourselves any longer. From his Cairo speech in his first apology tour to the latest shipment of arms to Syria Obama has been clearly working to facilitate the various groups aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood.

The latest effort to send a couple billion more of our tax dollars to the same group that now comprises the ISIS "freedom fighters" who were supposedly Syrian "freedom fighters" to whom we were previously smuggling arms to from Benghazi is just one more example.

The White House did not ignore the warnings. It just pretended to ignore them to perpetuate the standard lame version of "plausible denial" we know as "Obama didn´t have a clue before he read it in the newspaper or saw it on TV.
[Proof indeed that he does watch FOX because the others do not report anything until after Obama admits he has already heard of it.]

Gee, it´s almost like he wants the ISIS/Sunni/Muslim Brotherhood side to win over the Iran/Russia/Shiite nexus. Hey maybe that´s why he helped them in Libya, Egypt, Syria and now Iraq. That way the new caliphate can have a Sunni Muslim Brotherhood flavor and please his backers since school days.

So we go from an Obama-initiated withdrawal from Iraq, to flying fifty(50) sorties a day by three hundred(300) personnel who are THERE, on the ground, to only to hear Ben Rhodes say Obama is still on the fence(..hasn´t.. but reserves the right..) about using military action? Go or get off the pot. What is he waiting for?! This has been a problem for weeks! Obama simply can´t fight back, especially if it means harming a Sunni fighter.

Let´s not forget though, that our enemies have now taken to fighting amongst themselves; somehow, that´s a bad thing?

Yes, he squandered the sacrifices we´ve made, but in the end, if our enemies have stopped totally focusing on us and now desire to eliminate one another, I think we should sit back and watch the unfolding drama.

I´m sure Val Jar has the situation well in hand. [sarcasm off]

Obama is a traitor, Has always hated this country as did his mother and grandparents. He enjoys the trappings of his presidency while systematically destroying our culture, freedoms and way of life in order to turn us into an Islamic fascist state.

Why?...Perhaps we should look no further than the six card-carrying Muslim Brotherhood operatives currently "serving" on Mullah Barry´s White House Staff and occupying key positions in his administration:

-Arif Alikhan---Assistant Secretary Of Homeland Security For Policy Development

-Mohammed Elibiary---Member of The Homeland Security Advisory Council

-Rashad Hussain---U.S. Special Envoy to The Organization Of The Islamic Conference

-Salam al-Marayati---Co-Founder of The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

-Imam Mohamed Magid---President of The Islamic Society Of North America (ISNA)

-Eboo Patel---Member of Obama´s Advisory Council On Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships

#4 nails it. The White House supports the terrorists and they have been the instigator and weapons supplier in every major disturbance in the ME. The only thing that´s working in our favor is that those animals can´t exist without fighting each other over their religious disagreements.

Both Bush 41 and Bush 43 should have used the same strategy, bomb the stuffing out of Mecca, Baghdad and all of their major cities and let the dogs fight over the scraps. Guaranteed there would not have been another 9/11 or any other terrorist act for a long time.

I had to give a like to almost every post in this story. Why? Because almost every one of them is right.

Ineptitude is what they want you to think, but furthest from the truth. Obama is much smarter than some want to give him credit for. If you give him credit for being smart, you will understand that this was intentional, therefore well planned, and a multi-pronged approach by Obama for the exact outcome we see unfolding right now.

Why he will not act? He would be killing his own. The few that are willing to see, and admit the hurtful truth that Obama is a Sunni muslim, and fomented, aided, and abetted the entire thing, are the ones that get the full picture. Take nearly every post here as truth. It is, and was fully orchestrated for this outcome. We are all simply along for the ride, because of the willfully blind. Those who intentionally turned a blind eye to Obama because of political correctness are directly to blame, along with a complicit, lap dog media.

The lofo´s only voted for him because they were uninformed. We can only take responsibility for that, because we knew what the media was doing, and allowed it. That means, and meant, and still means, it is up to us, to inform.

Do your part. Educate a lofo, so maybe something like this will never happen again.

Going into Iraq was great strategy. Dubya gave our Muslim enemies a permanent problem. This was a good thing because S. Hussein gave the Baluchi terrorists such as Khalid Sheik Mohammed (who is still alive and well in Guantanamo) new passports when he controlled Kuwait. Iraqi embassies organized critical al-Quaida organizational meetings in Malasia, and funded who knows how much anti-American terrorism. Hussein was a threat and now Iraq is the gift that keeps on giving. Let the Shia and Sunni fight it out.

The Saudi Arabians cannot be too happy with Caliph Ibrahim just over the border. The Islamic state will turn to Damascus next, but after that the control of Medina and Mecca seems an excellent move for the new Caliph of all Muslims.

Saudi Arabia has a great Air Force we trained so if there is any bombing to be made in the Middle East let them do it (or the Israelis). Turkey is also profiting from the war in Syria so let Sunni Turks also go in.

Perhaps B. Hussein O. is a visionary and foresaw the Arab bloodbath in his speech in Cairo and killing of Gaddafi. s/

Maliki wanted us gone, we went.

The way it should have gone is, if Maliki wanted us gone, then Maliki should have went, we got a new leader who would sign the status of forces agreement and let us keep 10,000 troops (plus 15,000 contractors) in Iraq, and then none of this ever would have happened.

But neither Maliki nor Obambi are even minimally competent, and the upshot is likely to be just as ugly as can be.

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents, when a lower federal court

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens; Stop

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer.

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want.
