CIA director downplayed threat
from Islamic caliphate as ‘absurd’

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/13/2014 5:27:28 PM

The White House is facing new questions about underestimating the threat from Islamic State militants in Iraq with the surfacing of a speech in 2011 by John Brennan, then President Obama’s counter-terrorism chief and now CIA director, in which he dismissed the danger of an Islamic caliphate as “absurd.” “Our strategy is … shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics,” Mr. Brennan said on June 29, 2011. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a

Should we lose to the coming storm that is IS and Al Qaeda unleashed worldwide, this could be our epitaph.

When the official policy of the Øvomit administration is that Øvomit´s brother muslims can do no wrong, what else would anyone expect?!?!?

Muslims have made it very clear that they plan to exterminate the west. We must exterminate them before they get the chance. Act now, or it will be too late!!!

Just because he thinks the vision is absurd doesn´t mean they do. They will continue attacking and murdering for that vision anyway.
Now, what are we doing about it?

With the CIA director a muslim, it´s no wonder Obama and the rest of his administration are so reluctant to go after the terrorists! Brennan called the caliphate threat "absurd"!! Does that sound like a loyal American?

Didn´t Obama blame the ´´intelligence community´´ for not anticipating this increasingly massive violence from what Mark Levin now calls ASSIS ? And wouldn´t that intel community be headed up by a muslim convert?

Makes you wanna go, hmmmmm.....

According to Common Core, this 2 plus that 2 equals a definite 5.

IAEA rejects Arab bid to
curb Israel´s nuclear capabilities
Jerusalem Post [Israel] & Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/25/2014 3:30:14 PM     Post Reply
Member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency rejected on Thursday an Arab resolution criticizing Israel over its assumed atomic arsenal, in a diplomatic victory for Western states that opposed the initiative. Arab states had submitted the non-binding resolution – which called on Israel to join a global anti-nuclear weapons pact – to the annual meeting of the 162-nation UN nuclear agency, in part to signal their frustration at the lack of progress to move towards a Middle East free of nuclear weapons. The United States and its allies argued that the resolution, if adopted, would be counterproductive. Fifty-eight countries

An earthquake registering a preliminary 6.2 magnitude was centered 81 miles northwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Thursday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. "It was kind of a long one," Anchorage Police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro told CNN. At this point we have no major reports of damage or injuries." The USGS detected the earthquake at 9:51 a.m. local time with an epicenter in a remote area of southern Alaska, according to the initial report. "Wow. Big quake. At least it felt big on the 6th floor of the #Anchorage courthouse," Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reporter Casey Grove tweeted.

The who, how, when and

Eric Holder is resigning as attorney general. Now all official Washington cares about is how, when, and if his as-yet-unnamed successor will be confirmed. Answering that question is very complex -- since it involves Congress and the coming election, among other factors. (Snip) Barring confirmation hearings in the lame-duck session of Congress (or earlier), which seems unlikely, Republicans would be in a much stronger position when it comes to President Obama´s options to replace Holder. It would be the first time that a Republican-controlled Senate would be tasked with confirming or rejecting one of Obama´s Cabinet

Three retired firefighters who worked at ground zero died on the same day from cancer, an illness that many fear might be connected to toxic World Trade Center dust released on Sept. 11, fire officials said Thursday. Lt. Howard Bischoff, 58, and firefighters Robert Leaver, 56, and Daniel Heglund, 58, died within hours of one another Monday. Their deaths are "a painful reminder that 13 years later we continue to pay a terrible price for the department´s heroic efforts," Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said in a statement.

One minute, Emily Miles was walking her dogs in a Santa Barbara County avocado grove, the next, a hulking 300-pound black bear was sinking its teeth into her left thigh after tackling her to the ground. "Looking at him, I knew he could kill me in an instant," Miles, 65, said in an interview aired by KTLA. But the Carpinteria woman wasn´t going to go without a fight. She started screaming and kicking the 6-foot-tall bear until she was able to get away. In addition to the bite, Miles suffered a cracked rib and deep claw marks on her back during Monday's attack. Traps have since been set in the area,

Sarah Palin is lending her Tea Party star power to Republican Rob Maness, who is running an insurgent campaign in Louisiana’s Senate race against incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu. Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy is the party favorite in the race, but Maness, a retired Air Force officer, says he intends to stay in the race, fueling a familiar establishment vs. Tea Party narrative in GOP races this year. “Rob’s candidacy is confounding the ‘experts’ and is going to shock the establishment on Election Day,” reads an e-mail solicitation for the event, which only pledges a “surprise guest” will be at the event.

Washington - The United States believes its has identified the masked Islamic State militant who was filmed beheading two kidnapped American journalists and a British aid worker. James Comey, the director of the FBI, reportedly said his agents believe they have identified the man but would not be releasing his identity. Mr Comey's announcement at a briefing with American reporters is the first time an official on either side of the Atlantic has said they believed the killer has been identified.

Washington - A US government Twitter account tasked with countering jihadist propaganda triumphantly posted pictures of dead Islamic State fighters only to delete them a short while later. The US State Department runs a number of social media accounts to push back against Isil and al-Qaeda and convince young Muslims not to enslist with the jihadists. The "Think Again Turn Away" Twitter account posted pictures of the corpses of four jihadist fighters reportedly killed in US air strikes in an apparent warning to those thinking of taking up arms.

A Neptune-size planet beyond the solar system has telltale traces of water vapor in its atmosphere, making it the smallest exoplanet known to have the wet stuff yet, scientists say. Several massive Jupiter-size giants have had the components of their atmosphere examined, but until now, the atmospheres of smaller planets have proved more elusive. In this new study, scientists discovered traces of water on the alien planet HAT-P-11b, which orbits a star 124 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. "Water is the most cosmically abundant molecule that we can directly observe in exoplanets, and we expect it to be

Unmanned aircraft were dispatched over an upper class area of Buenos Aires and discovered 200 homes and 100 pools that had not been detailed on returns.

President Obama issued a tough assessment of Russia’s incursion into Ukraine as part of his General Assembly remarks Thursday, calling for a stand-down to the military mission — but Russian delegates weren’t exactly respectful. They outright laughed during his speech, Newsmax reported. Video showed Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin covering his mouth to disguise his smiling face, while tapping the arm of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov — who’s also laughing. Meanwhile, Mr. Obama said: “Russian aggression to Europe recalls the days when large nations trampled in pursuit of territorial ambition.

Illegal immigrants appear to be hijacking the phrase “coming out” to describe their experience of publicly acknowledging their immigration status. “Coming out” is typically used by lesbians, gay men and bisexuals to describe how they opened up to their family and friends about their sexual orientation. But members of United We Dream and the Minority Affairs Council adopted the phrase for its “Coming Out Day” Wednesday afternoon in Edinburg, Texas, where parents announced their illegal status and demanded protection from President Obama, the Washington Examiner reported. “We are here, because three weeks ago

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama

Mrs. Obama said, "Women here are still woefully underrepresented in our government and the senior ranks of corporations. We still struggle with violence against woman and harmful cultural norms that tell woman how they are expected to look and act."
