‘We’re coming for you, Barack Obama’:
Top U.S. official discloses threat from ISIL

Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/24/2014 12:11:56 AM

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda. (Snip) Elissa Slotkin, the acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for policy, added that ISIL also has its eye on the president, threatening “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama,” The Hill reported.

Comments:
All that bowing wasn´t low enough to satisfy 0bama´s terrorist buds. Now, we´ll see if the coward-in-chief will finally close the borders. Or, is this just another "leaked" story to bolster his "manliness" as he goes about his business of doing nothing for our Country or its allies. BTW, where´s Biden?

Now that the whole world knows the address of the $4.3 million home that he is going to move the wookie, mama robinson and probably surrogate mama ValJar into - he should worry. These are his brothers talking.

This is a strategy by Obama´s brothers from ISLAM to make the world believe the lie that they are going after him. Give me a break! They are his family ...they don´t want us to believe that fact. Nevertheless, it´s true. He is one of them ...look at how consistently he FUNDS and helps them. Look at how he is disseminating this country.

Exactly #6. This looks like an inoculation and is the result of a directive from 0bama/Jarrett. A few months ago this would have sounded like a wild eyed, fringe element conspiracy theory. Unfortunately, sounds very plausible now.

Obama´s not worried. These are jayvee terrorists, not real terrorists, as he told the New Yorker magazine in. January;

New Yorker editor David Remnick pointed out to the president that the Al Qaeda flag is now seen flying in Falluja in Iraq and in certain locations in Syria, and thus the terrorist group has not been “decimated” as Obama had said during his 2012 reelection campaign.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told Remnick. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

I´m pretty sure death threats arrive at the White House all the time and during any presidency. This one was released (if it´s even real) so we can be impressed and awed by Barack Obama´s bravery by going out and about his usual day.

Let him go down to McAllen or Brownsville to illustrate his bravery. The Four Seasons in San Francisco just won´t do it, sir.

This is why you can´t draw a rattlesnake to your breast. It will do what a rattlesnake does and bite you. Obama has opened himself up to this threat. The border is wide open and no one knows who is coming across it and with what kind of plans.

Obama should be very afraid. The people who groomed him and set him on this path are not above martyring him if it advances their agenda. When they are manipulating events on a presidential level, they know they may have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. No one is above their evil goals. They will do what needs to be done. No way they are going to allow this country to be returned to what it once was. They have come too far to lose now. These next two years are goIng to be trying to say the least.

So they watched the movie Night of the Living Dead and other flicks. If they want to destroy America they would do nothing to impede him. Our Dear Reader is protected by an electronic shield of teleprompters and the ISILs couldn´t afford the Green Fees of any of the golf courses Jug Ears frequents. This is an idle threat. Real danger is in Iraq where if you are a Christian you already miss Saddam Hussein. Our current fiasco simply illustrates no matter how bad things are they can always be worse.

If that happened a mircle might happen and we would get a real president..(not biden) and America would defend itself. so don´t give a worry..no one is going to hurt our dear leader. and If they are coming after him its just to make the USA the new United Islamic State...and they NEED Obama for that to happen.

The terrorists think they can make statements like this because they think nobody is coming after them. Ideally, this guy should have an appointment with a drone in a week or two. The life expectancy of any terrorist ´leader´ should be less than a year. They should be so scared that they might give their location away that they never make a statement like this.

I doubt if anyone has a chance of getting to Obama until after he´s not living so large. He´ll still have security, but nothing like what he currently enjoys. I get a certain amount of satisfaction knowing he´ll have to be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. He and his family may feel invincible now, but he´s going to be living in fear the rest of his life. You can´t relax when you have made as many enemies as he has.

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/3/2014 4:33:21 PM     Post Reply
Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1. Talking about Ebola (Salon) - 2. Describing the Hong Kong

Turkey approves military operations
against ´IS´ in Syria and Iraq
Deutsche Welle [Germany], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/2/2014 2:03:21 PM     Post Reply
Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

On MSNBC´s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S. "Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It´s here," Matthews said. Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here´s a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes: Chris Matthews : I´m just trying to follow the logic here.

Eric Holder’s exit leaves a

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Oregon pols battle over when to

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

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,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
