The Islamic State’s campaign
of terror will take more
than words to stop

Washington Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/20/2014 10:47:01 PM

WITH EACH day, the barbarism of the Islamist extremists terrorizing Syria and Iraq becomes more evident — as does the need for the United States and its allies to act more vigorously to block their rise. On Tuesday the group that calls itself the Islamic State released a video of the beheading of American journalist James Foley . Mr. Foley, as President Obama said Wednesday, “reported from difficult and dangerous places. .?.?. [He] courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings.” One reason there has been so little outcry as more than 150,000 Syrians have been killed and millions

...it seems that someone at WaPo is having and "adult" moment behind the keyboard...

...this administration has shucked and jived it way since inception and with Barry´s aptitude at dithering and delaying and refusal to confront the true evil that exists, I pray we get through this phase of history without the major lost of life on our homeland...

...the "blood and treasure" we lost in the sands of the middle east should never be forgotten...

The scariest part of this article is how ´surprised´ we were by the build-up of this terrorist group. Surely there are people in DC smarter than Obama and Valjar. What the H is going on.

Thee article´s closing line: "America needs a genuine strategy in response." The bottom line: America needs a genuine president. I´m tired of Soros´ sock-puppet ValJar and her mini-me MusBrobama.

Unless you want to be kneeling on a prayer rug five times a day words will need to be replaced with bullets and bombs at some point. Hopefully Captain Zero hasn’t reduced our military to an empty shell by that time.

Is it me or has the terrorist threat increased exponentially since Brennan has been the head of the CIA. It certainly seems we were caught flat footed by ISIS rise to power. Of course, we may very well have had the intelligence but Obama refused to act on it. Either way, it is evident the people who are running things in Washington seem incompetent to deal with theses barbarians. An average American off the streets could more responsibly make decisions to protect this country than the fools in Washington. There were many missed opportunities to stop ISIS before they gained so much power and no urgency from Obama to do so. Now they are richly funded and gaining members everyday. When will this president get his head out of the sand and acknowledge the threat they pose to everyone?

Hopefully we have some smart Republican strategists who are readying a campaign for 2014 and 2016 that will show all the horror that Obama has allowed to take place due to his efforts to weaken and marginalize America.

It may take some ghastly pictures before the low-fos "get it", but all this horror shouldn´t "go to waste" - to borrow part of a quote from Rahm Emanuel.

What next? Our southern border seems to be an open invitation to all who want to come in - even those who would love to slaughter every last American.

Perhaps ISIS warriors will enter into our country and do the same with kidnapped citizens as they did with Foley - in our own country - with cameras, clothes, weapons, etc. they secured within our country. That would be quite a video. (Any idea I could come up with "they´ve already thought of." They´re way ahead of us, unfortunately.)

Our strutting, grinning, golfing, partying president already has enough blood on his hands. This scenario seems unimaginable, but certainly within the realm of possibility. What is our ´dear leader´ doing about it? Nothing much; I´m convinced he doesn´t give a damn.

Large parts of Islam are already at war with the rest of the world. Groups like ISIL, AQ, Hamas, Hezbollah, BH, the Taliban, and others are basically all the same just different allegiances. The only reason to view them as different groups is just to prioritize which ones to go after first.

Its going to take real world leadership to avoid world war 3, but we got Obama. Obama just views them as groups with grievances and sympathizes with them and alienates our allies. Add in the tyrants in Russia and China who look to take advantage of the situation, and its really a bleak picture.

Our President Obola is "appalled" at the "irresponsible" behavior demonstrated by filthy, head-chopping, jihadist savages.

But our President Obola sends his acolytes out to denounce those of us who believe in the United States Constitution as "potential terrorists."

Just imagine how different this world would be, had President Obola´s worldview resulted in measures taken against the jihadist savages that are comparable to measures he fully supports for "defending" America against full-term baby girls trying to evade the abortionists´ death-tools.

Whataguy, that President Boko Obola!

These people that come from ancient tribal cultures respect only one thing. Overwhelming power. Not niceties. Not "can´t we all just get along?". They must be crushed. Anything short of that will fail.

To a small degree this lesson could be applied at home even though I would never want to see that.

#10 -- If another 9/11 or worse happens on Skippy´s shift, expect him to go full Nagin and lock himself in AF-1´s bathroom"

I would posit that he´s already doing that -- except that the head he´s locking himself into is any golf course he can commandeer. The public and the press (and any potentially annoying questions, however unlikely), are barred; the few people accompanying him are fellow criminal cronies; he´s not required to say a single word; and he can take care of his dirty business (cheating, drinking, smoking this-and-that) in comparative privacy and with no consequences. And the moment he finishes a round he starts the next one.

Two suggestions:
* Since terrorists rely upon anonymity, America should hit them where it really hurts: the mosques of mullahs who preach jihad. Doesn´t matter where. Destroy numerous such mosques in Muslim countries and terrorist will be stopped by the mullahs.
* Think like a terrorist. Devastate the towns and cities of known terrorists.
Think World War II, not Vietnam.

Sorry, but the ONLY reason the WaPo has its shorts all twisted is because this poor guy was one of their own.

They & the other newspapers didn´t give a tinker´s dam about the Christian babies literally chopped in half in front of their parents, the Kurd daughters raped in front of their father´s before the father himself was beheaded and the WaPo didn´t care a whit that dozens of Yazidi women were passed around the campfire so each of these beasts could have their way with her before her head was chopped off too!

Now their upset with their beloved Obama. These people make me ill.

I don´t imagine that too many Americans will throw down their guns and run when this rabble hits our beaches. Liberals, muslim appeasers and peace makers will not have much warning before the lead starts flying so I suggest they learn to dive into the dirt quickly.

Perhaps this give BO "plausible deniability", when he claims he only just learned about ´whatever´ in the news?

Obama administration attempts
to quell fears about Ebola
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/3/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration sought Friday to tamp down fears of an Ebola outbreak within the U.S., making the case that America’s infrastructure and health care systems set it apart from the horrific scenes coming out of West Africa, even as a confirmed case in Dallas and recent scares in the nation’s capital prompt fears of a domestic problem. “The United States is prepared to deal with the crisis,” Lisa Monaco, homeland security adviser to President Obama, told reporters at a White House briefing on the response to the deadly virus. At the same time, officials said they understood the alarm

The U.S. economy is back on solid ground six years after the Great Recession, new data showed Friday, but President Obama and other Democrats are struggling to convince voters ahead of the midterm elections that they deserve the credit for the rebound. The government reported that the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest level since the dark days of the 2008 financial crisis. Job growth surged to 248,000 in what was the final snapshot of the nation’s labor market before voters head to the polls in November. Obama on Friday seized on the numbers, pleading with

A Washington-area hospital announced Friday that it had admitted a patient with symptoms and a travel history associated with Ebola. The case has not been confirmed, but the number of similar incidents around the country and a confirmed Ebola patient in Dallas have spurred concerns about whether U.S. hospitals are as prepared to deal with the virus as federal officials insist they are. Since July, hospitals around the country have reported more than 100 cases involving Ebola-like symptoms to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, officials there said. Only one patient so far — Thomas Duncan in Dallas

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker is casting himself as a turnaround artist, seeking re-election with a pitch to voters that he revamped the state’s spending and business climate in just four years. For a governor with presidential aspirations, it’s a case he’s likely preparing for a national audience as well — but first he’ll have to get through a tighter-than-expected re-election race against Democrat Mary Burke, a former state secretary of commerce. As if that wasn’t enough, analysts say that his race could also say a lot about the political strength of labor unions, given that they’ve made defeating

The real reason winning the Senate matters

You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can’t win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here’s why. In midterms, it’s all right to be the party of no. The 2010 election, for example, was a referendum on the liberal overreach of the first two Obama years. Result? A Democratic “shellacking,” said President Obama. The massive stimulus, (the failed) cap-and-trade and Obamacare created a major backlash that cost Obama the House and, with it, the rest of his ideological agenda. It’s been blocked ever since. That’s the

Eleven whistleblowers in the FBI say the bureau is targeting them for termination in retaliation for their revelations about FBI wrongdoing, the top Republican on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary announced Wednesday. The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican. “It’s stereotypical treatment of whistleblowers for the executive branch.”

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease and Prevention helped develop the “air transport bio-containment

Despite national guidelines for evaluating potential Ebola cases and worldwide awareness of an epidemic that has killed thousands in West Africa, a man who later tested positive for the disease was released from a Dallas hospital even though he said he had traveled to Texas from Liberia. The man returned two days later and was placed in isolation before he became the first person ever diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

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.

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
