Obama warned Isis terrorists ´will
target US cities and kill with abandon´

Independent [UK], by Stuart Henderson

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/1/2014 9:26:46 PM

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Notice the border is still wide open?

Obama and his imbecilic disciples don´t care.

And since the attack will happen where his worshippers live and worship him, why should the rest of us really care?

It won´t be like 9/11 this time. Obama has dumbedown the country too much. Heck, we don´t have a country anymore more anyway, do we?

Sad, I still love what used to be my country... I feel like an old schmuck.

Obama has taken security shield down from America. I think he really wants an attack to call martial law. Wonder if there is collaberation with the enemy?

FTA: The top Democrat on Mr Rogers´ intelligence panel, Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, was more sceptical. He said more needed to be known before judging whether extremists planned to commit terrorist acts in the US any time soon.

He said the group´s priority now seemed to be to hold on to territory it had gained, rather than export violence.

“It is extremely urgent, but you don´t just rush in,” Mr Ruppersberger said.

It was a view shared by Adam Smith, a Washington state Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee: “We can´t simply bomb first and ask questions later,” he said.


Dear Mr. Ruppersberger and Mr. Smith:
Yes, we could rush in, and Yes We Can! bomb first and ask questions later when we are dealing with a group that has made the threats they have made against us. We don´t need another 9/11 to prove their threats.

#1, #5 – Unless my understanding of the news article is incorrect, Obama did not warn ISIS. Obama was warned by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Mike Rogers that ISIS is looking for a spectacular attack in the States as well as Western Europe. That warning is based on their access to sensitive secrets and detailed briefings.

The administration must have had this whole endeavor planned for some time. Remember the mysterious construction on the White House grounds not long after Obama came into office? Many believe it was a bunker being constructed.

So just out of curiosity just what has the United States done to ISIS to make them threaten us? They issued their threats even before Obama started dropping bombs. Did they threaten any other countries? ´ haven´t heard any mention of that. They seem to be focused on us.

Like another said, Obama is on the ropes but doubtful there will be a near end of match ambush like Muhammad Ali used to do. The admin is no doubt in the planning phase how they will get ISIS transported to the northern hemisphere in mass.

I don´t see any attacks on Amerika until late October or early November. Why? Just remember those upcoming elections that are going to change the Senate. Well now, an attack before the election would give al-obama an excuse to put it off. I´m sure he has coordinated this with his terrorists cohorts. Tin-foil hat time? Not with this muslim POS.

How pathetic that advisers have to practically beg the President of the United States to protect this country and its people. Yet, he still resists doing the one thing that would be of value and that is to secure the border. It simple boggles the mind and should scare the living day lights out of every American. Obama is a worthless CIC.

We have certain constraints regarding our own citizens who have been radicalized. However, there are thousands of non-citizens in our country on a "watch list". Why? Escort them to a plane bound for their country at our expense and never let them return. This is not rocket science, people!

In fact, you may vastly reduce the attendance at the mosques that are radicalizing our foolish young men who have just one common thread with these people ... the hatred of America. And for this we can thank all the community activists like Obama and Sharpton and Jackson, who have made a living off of stirring discontent.

What the article doesn´t state is that zippy "preferred" to read his intel reports instead of being briefed. He never asked any questions after he read them, either.

We can conclude that either, a.) he never read them each day, or b.) his reading comprehension skills are so low, he couldn´t absorb or retain what he (supposedly) read.

Somehow, he never heard the term used by past presidents who assured us, "All options are on the table," when dealing with evil doers, instead of his we have no strategy BS.

Look at it from ISIS´s point of view. They´re close to taking over in Iraq and Syria, do they want to screw that up by attacking the US and riling up the American people forcing Obama to act, especially when they know that if they don´t rile the US Obama will never do anything to oppose them? They´ve got two years to do whatever they want with no significant US opposition. I think they´ll take it and turn their attention to the US after Obama is gone.

A "surge" in pediatric respiratory illness cases has now been reported at a third hospital in the commonweath. Although the state has no confirmed cases of Enterovrius D-68, a doctor at Boston Children´s Hospital told media outlets Sept. 18 that the hospital has treated more than 150 children with respiratory problems, during the past week. Dr. Michael Agus, the head of the hospital´s Intensive Care Unit, told NECN that it is "very likely," that at least some of the cases are caused by the strain of the virus that has made mostly young people ill in some 22 states.

Istanbul -- The latest ISIS advance in Syria has brought a swath of the country´s north-central Kurdish region under siege, with Kurdish leaders warning of another humanitarian crisis without international intervention. The Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani (Ayn al-Arab in Arabic) is an island, surrounded by ISIS on three fronts and the Turkish border to the north. The town was already mostly blockaded by ISIS, but in the past three days some 60 nearby villages fell under ISIS control, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

So much for all that outrage. Nearly 90 percent of Americans say the recent outcry about domestic violence in the NFL hasn’t changed how much professional football they watch — and less than a third of the nation believes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should resign. That’s the result of an exclusive NBC News/Marist poll, which also finds that a majority of Americans – including nearly six in 10 self-described football fans – say they disapprove of the way the NFL has handled the domestic-violence allegations. The poll comes after a series of damaging stories indicating that NFL officials had turned

DENVER — Republican Rep. Cory Gardner is leading Democratic Sen Mark Udall in Colorado, according to a new independent poll released Thursday. The 48-40 Gardner lead among likely voters in The Quinnipiac University Poll contrasts with two other independent polls released earlier this month that found Udall tied or slightly ahead in the race. It is from the same pollster that found Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper 10 points behind his Republican challenger, a finding that also conflicted with other polls that have shown that race essentially tied. The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,211 voters by telephone from Sept. 10-15 and has

The Obama administration´s
nonstop incoherence on ISIS

One has to wonder just how often members of President Barack Obama´s national security team talk with each other. The federal government is famously gigantic, but the president´s Cabinet is not, particularly if you narrow it to the inner circle that crafts military and national security strategy. One would assume that it wouldn´t be all that difficult to prepare a coherent approach to an international crisis, particularly as Cabinet members testify before Congress amidst deep skepticism of the White House´s strategy to destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, or in the administration´s preferred acronym, ISIL). And yet,

BEIRUT - The militant Islamic State group released a video warning the United States that its fighters are waiting for it in Iraq if President Barack Obama sends troops there, as his top general said may happen if the current strategy of airstrikes fails. The slick 52-second video entitled "Flames of War" shows militants blowing up tanks and images of wounded U.S. soldiers. It then shows a clip of Obama saying that combat troops will not be returning to Iraq, ending with a text overlay that reads "fighting has just begun." The video´s timing, released late Tuesday, suggested it was

In his major address explaining America’s new war against ISIS, President Obama pledged that there would be no U.S. combat troops. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he may recommend ground forces in the future. The White House is seeking to gloss over the rift between the president and his top general, but it is clear that just below the waterline Obama is not on the same page as the commanders who will be leading the new fight. U.S. military officials and members of Congress have complained privately for weeks that Obama

In Colorado, the state where Barack Obama was first nominated for the White House, he has emerged as a drag on the re-election prospects of Democratic Sen. Mark Udall and Gov. John Hickenlooper, a USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds. The survey shows Udall at 42%, Republican challenger Cory Gardner at 43% in what is essentially a tie. The poll of 500 likely voters, taken Saturday through Tuesday, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points. The governor´s race also is too close to call: Hickenlooper is at 43%, Republican challenger Bob Beauprez at 41%. The 2008 Democratic

Whenever Barack Obama seems in danger of falling, do we have to hear that George W. Bush made the cliff? It happened with the economy. For the president’s staunchest defenders, legitimate questions about whether the stimulus was wisely crafted and whether Obamacare was rushed took a back seat to lamentations over the damage that his predecessor had done. Obama wasn’t perfect, but at least he wasn’t Bush. (Snip) Enough. It’s true that Obama hasn’t replicated Bush’s offenses, and it’s consoling. But it isn’t exactly reason for a parade, and it doesn’t inoculate him. The culpability that lies elsewhere doesn’t relieve

WASHINGTON — Just miles (kilometers) from where former Guantanamo Bay terror suspects have resettled, American warplanes take off from Qatar´s al-Udeid air base in the global war on extremism. The contrast in images illustrates why tiny but rich Qatar is an intriguing player in what President Barack Obama says will be a long battle to stop and eventually destroy the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Qatar plays an outsize role as a U.S. military partner. It gained public praise from Obama for brokering the controversial deal that freed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Taliban captivity in May in

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants. Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines. The

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

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.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

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. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria. When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room
