Depends on the Meaning of ISIS
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/24/2014 5:59:23 AM

Following the horrific ISIS beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, we are led to believe that the president is beginning to rethink the issue of terrorism, or so we gather from the comments of Ben Rhodes, his deputy national security advisor. When you see somebody killed in such a horrific way, that represents a terrorist attack,” [Ben Rhodes, the White House’s deputy national security advisor] said. “That represents a terrorist attack against our country and against an American citizen.” As is common with the garbled uncoordinated messaging of the administration, Rhodes´ characterization just makes it worse that Obama very publicly went

Good info here, including the reason Obama says ISIL instead of ISIS.

We cannot continue to pretend it is workplace violence or a criminal act.
It is an Act of War and total victory is the only option.
FTA
In the meantime, the terrorism metastasizes. And we seem to be dealing with a second generation of barbarians.
To respond effectively to an act of war or not to is the question. The administration’s Harf response that ISIS is at war with everyone, not America, doesn’t change the fact that ISIS says it is at war with us; it has launched a “terrorist attack” against America, and we need to destroy it."
We could start be executing Major Hasan and classifying the deaths and injuries to our soldiers as an terrorist attack.

Excuse me, I need to Harf. Has there ever been a dumber spokesjerk at the State Department than this twit? So ISIS has nothing to do with any religion?! Perhaps someone should ask her why the first letter in their name then is "Islamic".

And speaking of names, since there is so much confusion about whether to call them ISIS or ISIL, let´s go with the President and call them ISJV.

When you discover a cancer you don´t just take out some of it, and wait and see if it grows back. You remove all of it and some surrounding tissue, just to be sure.

ISIS, ISIL or whatever word games the morons like Harp are using to describe this cancer, is malignant. The important letter is the letter "I," meant to distract from the fact they are all mooslems. Remove them and the surrounding tissue (collateral damage).

[i]“[ISIS] does not operate in the name of any religion. The president has been very clear about that, and the more we can underscore that, the better,” Harf said.[/i]

Underscore it all you want, it´s still a despicable, dangerous lie.

U.S. Government Lost Track of 6,000
Foreign Nationals of ‘Heightened Concern’
Daily Signal, by Melissa Quinn    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/3/2014 7:18:42 AM     Post Reply
More than 6,000 foreign nationals in the United States on student visas have vanished after overstaying their time here, raising alarm at the Department of Homeland Security. The federal agency is now working to find them after losing track of their whereabouts. Officials at the federal agency told ABC News there are more than 58,000 students who overstayed their visas over the past year. Approximately 6,000 of those foreign nationals were referred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for “follow-up,” as they’re of “heightened concern.” “My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” Peter Edge, deputy associate director for Homeland

New York’s ‘shut up’ rule

Keep quiet. That’s the message being sent by New York State Board of Elections, which disregarded the First Amendment to enact new “emergency regulations” on political speech that could become permanent at the end of this month. Intended to regulate spending by independent groups during campaign season, the regulations are so expansive that almost anyone, citizen or organization, hoping to have their say on any issue could find themselves in bureaucratic dire straits. Imagine you hear a radio ad where your state representative — let’s call him Fred — claims to oppose higher taxes. But you know that Fred voted three times

Countless business owners across America have lost bank accounts because of a Justice Department initiative called “Operation Choke Point.” According to a House report, the secretive effort pressures financial institutions to deny a variety of legal businesses access to the very banking system they need to survive, simply because the Obama administration finds the businesses objectionable. Targeted enterprises include payday lenders, pawn shops and gun sellers. Meet four business owners who experienced Choke Point’s adverse effects firsthand:

Grover Norquist Goes to Burning Man

It’s a hell-hot Friday afternoon, and conservative anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and I are walking down a dusty footpath at Burning Man, the annual New Age festival held in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. (Snip) t’s a much different scene than you’d find at the offices of Americans for Tax Reform, the influential right-wing organization Norquist leads, but he seems charmed rather than frightened. “If you had 500 people get together and [they did] something like this, that would be impressive,” he says, surveying the blocks full of elaborately decorated theme camps. “But seventy thousand?” Further down the path, while Norquist

Irresponsible Choices
Creators Syndicate, by Thomas Sowell    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/2/2014 8:59:56 AM     Post Reply
The latest Gallup poll indicates that 14 percent of the people "moderately disapprove" of Barack Obama´s performance as president and 39 percent "strongly disapprove." Since Obama won two presidential elections, chances are that some of those who now "strongly disapprove" of what he has done voted to put him in office. (Snip) With many people now acting as if it is time for "a woman" to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualifications.

Listen to the radio and you might run across a segment that sounds something like a news report. A newsy music introduction plays as woman’s officious-sounding voice begins narrating a story. In a stilted delivery that appears to mimic that of a news anchor, the woman states, “In a move demonstrating the FBI’s valuable role of protecting national security, Director James Comey creates a separate Intelligence Branch…” It turns out this isn’t a news report at all. And the “news anchor” is actually a public affairs specialist. You might call the radio spot a faux news report brought to you by

Child Labor Day
American Thinker, by Christopher Chantrill    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/2/2014 6:45:10 AM     Post Reply
There is no more settled principle than the virtue of the laborer. And no greater self-congratulation than we have ended child labor. So when we celebrate Labor Day we congratulate ourselves on the wonderful things we have done to protect working people from exploitation and oppression, and we also congratulate ourselves that our children no longer have to go out to work. (Snip) First of all, let´s be clear about one thing. We moderns only have a problem with children working for pay. It is nothing for us to send our children off to government child-custodial facilities for a 12-year

More Swiss Banks Give Eric

More Swiss banks are dropping out of the U.S. banking program that the IRS supposedly uses to prevent American citizens from stashing cash overseas to avoid taxes. Known for 100 years as the original tax haven, free from the prying eyes of governments around the world, Swiss banks have provided banking services that guaranteed anonymity to arms dealers, Nazis, and law-abiding Americans alike. Offshore banks, especially Swiss banks, are not generally used to evade taxes however. The government already has enforcement mechanisms in place to prevent tax evasion by the use of offshore banks by American citizens. No smart rich person,

Recently, a few conservative intellectuals have raised serious questions about the College Board’s effort to develop a new curriculum for the Advanced Placement history courses. Stanley Kurtz, at National Review Online, writes that “this Framework will effectively force American high schools to teach U.S. history from a leftist perspective.” Naturally, the College Board argues that its intent is only to provide “balance,” to streamline the curriculum, and to enhance teacher flexibility. In other words, all benign matters that educators should welcome.

They DO have a strategy, but they prefer to appear indecisive. That’s because the strategy would likely provoke even greater criticism than the false confession of endless dithering. The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies.

We often read or hear from the media that a nation is “shocked” or “horrified” by the revelation of some crime or government scandal. It is almost never true. (Snip) Since Tuesday afternoon, however, Britain has felt real shock and horror over the report that 1,400 young women in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham had been groomed, raped, prostituted, trafficked, and brutally abused in almost every possible way by a criminal gang for the last 16 years. In addition, the authorities — which in this case are the local government authority, the police, and the child-protection services

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. The U.S. continues to target Islamic State

Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader
