White House Insists Obama Didn´t Dismiss
ISIS As The ´Jayvee Team´

Business Insider Magazine, by Hunter Walker

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/25/2014 5:27:58 PM

Following recent territorial gains by jihadists affiliated with the extremist group Islamic State, conservatives have criticized President Barack Obama for a January interview with The New Yorker in which he seemed to dismiss the group as a "jayvee team." In a briefing Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest rejected this interpretation of the president´s remarks and attempted to clarify them. "It´s important that we don´t sort of shorthand the analogy the president was trying to draw here," Earnest said.

Comments:
Another day and another dose of demonstrably false balloon juice from the most perfidious administration in U.S. history.

To be fair, Øvomit doesn´t really know what he is saying most of the time.

He just reads it off the teleprompter so that he can go play (or have some quality time with is "special friend" Reggie)...

What Josh Earnest attempted to say was "Pay no attention to what you heard Obama say and what he was seen and heard to say on tape and what was written quoting what he said. Ignore all that and believe what I, the Minister of Propaganda, now say he said"

Joseph Goebbels would be proud of his star students Barack Obama and Josh Earnest.

The president is so brilliant, you understand, that you can´t simply "let him be clear." He simply can´t be clear--or clearly understood. Each word of his is so deep and cleverly nuanced that ordinary people like you and me can´t possibly "get" him. We have to wait until he (or one of his spokes-kiddies) comes around later to unpack the jewels he lays on the unwashed public. Just sit tight, and don´t worry about what he says. He´ll tell you what he meant when he´s ready. Even if his exact words are in the public record--he probably didn´t say what he said. You simpletons just need help interpreting his genius.

And we thought Gibbs and and Carney were bad! This is downright insulting that they think we would actually believe these outright lies. It is just stunning to see it daily. What is not mentioned in the article is if those in the press started laughing and severely ridiculing him. If only that could have been true.

The statement was clear. He called them and some others, the JV team. He just wanted to be a tough guy and act like NOBODY represented the threat that Bin Laden represented.

Pope Francis called Sunday for Muslims and all religious leaders to condemn Islamic extremists who “pervert” religion to justify violence, as he visited Albania and held up the Balkan nation as a model for interfaith harmony for the rest of the world. “To kill in the name of God is a grave sacrilege. To discriminate in the name of God is inhuman,” Francis told representatives of Albania’s Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic communities during a half-day visit to Tirana in which he recalled the brutal persecution people of all faiths suffered under communism. Francis wept when he heard the testimony of

NEW YORK – Some of the prominent environmental activists who gathered Sunday in New York City for a massive climate change march are not ready to support Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president. “I think Hillary Clinton has an awful lot to demonstrate to environmentalists and people who care about climate change,” Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, who helped organize the march, told msnbc. “She oversaw the complete fiasco that was the Copenhagen Conference as secretary of state. That was the biggest foreign policy failure since Munich. It’s not a proud record.” “I think Hillary Clinton has an

With Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2016 presidential run looking like a foregone conclusion, the question now is whether she has a message. Fresh off a visit to Iowa and two events last week in Washington where she sought to reconnect with female voters, Clinton has sounded increasingly like a candidate. She hints at her presidential ambitions with wink-and-a-nod asides like the one in Iowa: "It is true, I´m thinking about it." Yet in framing what she described Friday as her "long career of fighting for women, and children, and fairness, and equality, and justice," Clinton has nearly mastered the art of avoiding controversy,

WASHINGTON — With the list of international crises growing, President Obama, more than 100 world leaders — and even some celebrities, such as Leonardo DiCaprio — arrive in New York this week for meetings to find common ground and solutions. But while the convening of the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations guarantees a traffic mess, odds are far lower that the gathering achieves anything more than ceremonial jawing. Priority No. 1 for Obama is to bolster a coalition of countries backing his effort to destroy ISIS. Support so far is tepid, especially from Arab states. The President also wants support for

Islamic State has released a Hollywood-style propaganda video seemingly meant to counter a U.S.-led military and diplomatic drive targeting the media-savvy extremist movement. The slickly produced video, clocking in at 55 minutes, is the group’s most ambitious agitprop effort to date, and again highlights Islamic State´s social media prowess. It initially appeared on YouTube but was removed. We are the harshest toward the infidels, and the flames of war are only beginning to intensify. - English-speaking Islamic State fighter appears in the group´s new video The piece is a manifestly self-glorifying project for a group widely reviled for its cruelty and sectarian-fueled ruthlessness.

Pamela Geller is an anti-Muslim activist with a history of paying for hateful ads on New York´s public transit system. (Remember those "savages" posters from 2012? That was her.) On Friday, the New York Daily News reported that Geller´s organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, was launching a $100,000 campaign mocking the Council on American-Islamic Relations´s "My Jihad" initiative, which portrays jihad as a personal, non-violent religious concept.

Domestic Violence More Common
Among Same-Sex Couples

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is defined as the physical, sexual or psychological harm caused by the current or former intimate partner. Since the 1970s, concern regarding the issue began in response to the women´s movement. Most of the traditional studies looked at the abuse women faced from men in heterosexual relationships. But, the latest study by Northwestern Medicine scientists found that domestic violence is more common among same-sex couples and excess stress raises the risk of this abuse. On analyzing the previous studies together, it was observed that domestic violence affected

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined

The National Security Advisor of the United States did something astonishing yesterday. In the middle of a reporter’s questioning, she bolted from the podium of the White House pressroom, saying, “Nice to see you,” fleeing a situation she evidently was unable to cope with. The question that caused Ms. Rice to flee was a fairly simple one: whether or not the president has authorized the bombing of targets in Syria. Rice responded multiple times that the timing of strikes would not be released, but that was not the question at hand, and reporters pressed her on whether her boss had authorized
