Obama vows to ‘destroy and degrade’
Islamic State after Sotloff beheading

Washington Times (D.C), by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/3/2014 6:23:14 AM

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

Indeed! And he´s going to "annihilate and inconvenience" them after that.

Does this guy EVER think before speaking? Does he not have any educated advisors?

It is utterly painful to watch and listen to this man try to speak clearly on any subject, but especially this one. You can tell he is so conflicted about our military goals and the welfare of our country.

He is in so far over his head and obviously has decided to surround himself with the likes of "dude boy". It´s no wonder he feels more comfortable campaigning and golfing.

"Seemed to lay the groundwork for..." This is not believable at this point. Obama is no David, no Jack the giant killer.

More likely he´s an accomplice to the weakening of America.

Just a little more blah, blah, blah for the LOFO.

"Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ´one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.´ Here is the first lines of that prayer:"

Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet…

It´s obvious he has been forced by overwhelming pressure, including from key players in his own party, to "do something". Or at least make noises like he´s going to do something. We´ll see.

So far, sending only an additional 350 troops isn´t going to "destroy and degrade" much of anything. He clearly does not want to damage his allies (ISIS, Iran). So this will be an interesting kabuki dance to watch.

Same statement he said ISIL should be a "manageable problem".

Oh, okay, so if they attack occasionally, is that a "manageable problem"?

I agree with the Seal´s mom who said that BO has to go. He´s not willing to do his job. He doesn´t want to act against Islam and destroy. Why? I think we all know the answer to that.

Which is it? "Degrade" or "destroy"? If you destroy something, there is no need to "degrade" it -- it´s been degraded by its destruction.

I believe that after a few head feints to this side or that, lobbing a few rockets here and there, Obama´s threat will turn out to be useless in "destroying" or even "degrading", except maybe temporarily, the biggest threat to America in my lifetime.

We know POTUS cannot be trusted. He has said that these latest 350 sent in to get ISIS "will not be combat" troops. So what are they? mahjong instructors?

The president also said the U.S. will seek to build an effective “regional coalition” capable of defeating the Islamic State....

Obama-speak for Iran to send more of its troops into Iraq. Iranian ground and air forces and the brutal Iraqi Shiite militia that Iran arms and trains stopped ISIS advance on Bagdhad. Obama will soon have US air forces attacking ISIS in northern Iraq and Syria, which will mean that Obama is assisting Syria´s dictator, Assad to remain in power. Not mentioned by Obama is that Iran also has 10,000 fighters supporting Assad´s war against moderate & extremist rebels.

In 2015, Iran will be the dominant power in the region, with a large conventional military and most likely nuclear weapons. Israel will be under greater threat since Iran is the major arms supplier to Hamas and Hezbollah while Saudi Arabia and the oil states will fear further Iranian expansion. Obama´s "regional coalition" will not bring peace to the Middle East.

Sorry for the blank post, my iPad has the yips this morning. Evidently, Obama is being pushed to address this issue. It clearly is not something he wants to do. He is very uncomfortable addressing possible military action against Muslims even these barbaric savages. It is as if a part of him wants no part of it. We see little righteous indignation that we would expect to see from a President who is confronted by these horrific acts perpetrated against American journalists. He can´t seem to anticipate ISIS´s actions even though they clearly articulate them beforehand. When they were marching across the desert, it would have been the perfect opportunity to strike them and prevent the death and destruction they left in their wake. Now they are stronger, better equipped and flush with cash. It makes no sense. Frankly, he wouldn´t be doing anything now if public pressure wasn´t mounting. He knows this looks bad politically and that is what is motivating him to act. If he had an interest in saving these guys, he had more than a year to make that happen and apparently it wasn´t on his radar. However, he has been focused like a laser beam on his golf game, vacations, and fund raising.

The DIC has always talked a good game but I will begin to pay attention when there has been some effective action. Dropping cases of water to starving people and bombing a few artillery positions constitute nothing more than attempted appeasement of those who consider him useless and clueless (which he is).

The time to engage ISIS was long ago. The longer he dithers the more lives will be lost.

He wouldn´t have said "Peep" if the criticism wasn´t getting to him.
It´s coming at him from all angles, but the Dems are vulnerable come November, and they´ve persuaded him he´s got to at least APPEAR to get a "strategy" together.

The walls are closing in around Obama and it is obvious he knows it. It Really grates on him. By putting degrade at end of sentence it is probably code for containment, only, which is NOT going to work. The destroy reference is just a bone for the naive. This could be a great opportunity for us: although there appears to be insufficient testosterone in DC to force him out before his term is up, Republican victory in 2016 will be assured if ISIS scores a direct hit on US homeland. BTW is that missing Malaysian jet still in play, for 09/11/14?

Obama is about as likely to destroy ISIS as those politicians who passed the CFL light bulb law, who also made financial investments in them, are to vote to pull CFL´s off the market.

Remember the glum, stricken looks on the MSM´s faces when they had to announce Saddam Hussein had been captured? Remember how they made it seem like Barack Hussein had slain bin Laden with his bare hands, in a Call so incredibly Gutsy that Lightbringer was beyond Alexander and Napoleon in military genius? Remember how the MSM covered-up and lied for every Democrat who rooted for American loss in the War on Terror by trying to take down the commander in chief pre-2008? We can only be sure that the MSM will deal with Commander Choom´s dealings with ISIS as dishonestly as they possibly can.

At this point it will be hard to destroy ISIS. They have consolidated their rule around Raqqa, which is well within the borders of Syria. Reports trickling out of that region say that new recruits are flocking to the city every day.

Remember, Obama doesn´t like the concepts of winners and losers, victors and vanquished, preferring instead to do a little surgical bombing and then negotiate "the peace" with a properly chastened and rebuked adversary whose point of view must be considered as being equally as valid as America´s. The "strategy" he claims not to have is a strategy to bring ISIS to the bargaining table, NOT a strategy for their defeat. "Destroy and degrade" refers to their equipment and capability, not ISIS itself, and once they have gotten their comeuppance he can send John Kerry to talk to them. Interesting dream world he lives in. If only the world worked that way. Obama will NOT defeat ISIS. Stop asking.

He said it! After 2 beheadings, he´s going to ORGANIZE! That´s all he knows how to do! And isn´t it interesting that he thinks he has the ability to *unite* other countries when he´s spent the last 6 years *dividing* everyone in America?

When there is a metastasizing tumor, you MIGHT "degrade" it first, hit it with chemotherapy to shrink it. But then, you ERADICATE it, excise it.

The goal is to destroy every cell of the cancer so that it does not re-appear in another part of the body.

Would BO tell a physician to wait and watch a tumor on the brain of one of his children, or someone he really cares about, himself?

As the cancer spread, would he say it´s just a virus?

Everyone knew and knows that ISIS is now a raging cancer.

You only "manage" cancer when there is nothing else you can do. The fact that BO mixes up how we will deal with ISIS is evidence of his inner conflict between his fantasy world and the gory reality in his lap.

This is why a few days ago he is ranting against Republicans at a Labor Day rally. And today, a somnambulant foggy-brain drones on and on and on...

Obama cannot be believed about keeping your own doctor when it comes to Obamacare. He cannot be believed about national security either.

Was it Congressman Joe Wilson who said during a State of the Union Address, "You lie?" Pretty accurate so far!

Destroy and degrade are two different things. Which is it? Already see Obama giving himself an out, and telegraphing his intentions to his enemy allies (our enemies, his allies). The guy is treasonable.

What exactly does he mean by degrade? Keep them out of Bagdad? Throw them out of Iraq, but leave them in Syria?

His sincerity is questionable. Especially considering past actions. He is a liar.

He could put on a display of power and declare victory. The media would cover for him.

The only way you can "degrade" an organization like ISIS is to stop them completely into the ground. They don´t know anything else. If just 1 or 2 are left, they will rise up like the Thunder Bird from their ashes. And Obozo isn´t smart enough to understand that like any ordinary person does.

Barry has now declared that ISIS is already a failure.
" Despite the group’s military successes and high-profile killings of Americans, the president said the Islamic State has “already failed.”
No, " Dopey " , you´ve failed.

Ho Hum --another pink line in the sand. The red has already been spilled by non combatant Americans.
One question--- Is there any doubt the so called 100 American citizens fighting with ISI were not native born but given automatic citizenship via refugee-- no questions asked.
That is also the way we acquired that stanch American George Soros--born a Bulgarian and vetted as a Hungarian.

This reminds me of an alcoholic that takes an oath to quit drinking forever. Two hours later he is drunk on his rear end. The only thing that is going to get destroyed and degraded is his golf cart and credibility. 9-11 is right around the corner and you can bet a dozen Titleist golf balls and a hot dog and a beer at the turn our friends in the Islamic terrorist world are going to attack us on multiple fronts. 9-11 is the day we will be attacked by terrorists for ever more. Just like Christmas and Easter comes every year for Christians, 9-11 is the day they wait for and plan on to celebrate their victory over America by attacking again. With no strategy to counter this probability, all that can happen is when it does go down, he will blame it all on Bush again.

Our Caspar Milquetaupe president is going to bungle this world into war with his leading from behind.

God Help Us (and thank him for the Second Amendment).

Lobbyist, lawyer Thomas H.
Boggs Jr. dead at 73
Washington Post, by Adam Bernstein    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/15/2014 7:15:25 PM     Post Reply
Thomas H. Boggs Jr., who sat for decades at the epicenter of Washington legal, business and political circles as the city’s marquee name in lobbying and political fund-raising, died Sept. 15 at his home in Chevy Chase. He was 73. The cause was an apparent heart attack, said his sister, the broadcast journalist Cokie Roberts. With a gregarious charisma that even his nemeses among good-government groups found hard to resist, Mr. Boggs spent four decades as a heavyweight in Washington influence peddling. Sometimes attending three fundraisers in a single night, he had a shrewd understanding of how the city operated

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

BAGHDAD -- The extremist-held Iraqi city of Mosul is set to usher in a new school year. But unlike years past, there will be no art or music. Classes about history, literature and Christianity have been "permanently annulled." The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has declared patriotic songs blasphemous and ordered that certain pictures be torn out of textbooks. But instead of compliance, Iraq´s second largest city has - at least so far - responded to the Sunni militants´ demands with silence. Although the extremists stipulated that the school year would begin Sept. 9, pupils have uniformly not

A luxury resort favored by celebrities including George Clooney and Jennifer Aniston has been battered by 125mph winds during a devastating storm on Mexico´s Baja California peninsula. At 9.45pm on Sunday, the Category 3 storm named Hurricane Odile slammed into the upscale resort of Cabo San Lucas, which is home to sprawling hotels and luxurious beach houses. Winds buffeted shelters, which had been prepared for as many as 30,000 people, as one of the worst storms on record hit the luxury retreats. Impoverished areas of the city and wider Baja area saw hundreds of homes destroyed. After the sun rose

Michelle Obama is taking to MTV to promote her higher education initiative. The first lady will be interviewed by MTV VJ Sway on Tuesday, for a segment airing early that evening. Obama will discuss her Reach Higher campaign, which encourages students to complete their education, according to the White House. An extended interview will be posted on MTV.com. The appearance on the music channel is the latest push for the initiative, which Obama launched in May. Obama chatted with YouTube star Tyler Oakley in a video touting Reach Higher posted on Friday. “I would urge your viewers to go for

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden told Fox News Sunday that up to 5,000 American troops will be in Iraq by the end of the year. He´s basing that estimate on the number of support troops it will take to carry out the air campaign against ISIS. The Hill: “In terms of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, logistics, advice, command and control assistance, tactical air control parties, look I’m betting we’re up close 5,000 by the end of the year,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” Hayden explained he doesn’t think they will be “combat maneuver units,” but predicted U.S. special operations forces

The federal government is pushing for more bike lanes on America’s roads in a new initiative designed to increase the amount of people who walk and bike as their main method of transportation. The Department of Transportation (DOT) released an action plan last week, detailing its plans to give local communities “road diets,” or turning driving lanes into bike lanes and pedestrian crossings. “The new pedestrian and bicycle safety initiative will promote design improvements to ensure safe and efficient routes for pedestrians and bicycles, promote behavioral safety, and provide education to help individuals make safer travel choices,” the agency announced

The Vikings reinstated Adrian Peterson, saying he will play this Sunday at New Orleans. The star running back was charged late last week on a felony count of injuring a child. He was arrested early Saturday morning in Houston after flying there, and was quickly released after posting $15,000 bond. Peterson will make his first court appearance Wednesday. He is expected to enter a plea at the hearing in Conroe, Texas, after his indictment for reckless or negligent injury to a child. He faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty. The Vikings deactivated

KENT: Clothing retailer Urban Outfitters sparked controversy Monday when the company’s online store posted a listing of a worn-looking sweatshirt bearing the name and logo of a local university. The Kent State University crew neck was marketed as “Washed soft and perfectly broken in, this vintage Kent State sweatshirt is cut in a loose, slouchy fit. Excellent vintage condition. We only have one, so get it or regret it!” While the shirt sold shortly thereafter, it featured blotches of red and holes in the upper left side of the shirt, creating what many believed to be allusion to the Kent

The Ebola virus ravaging West Africa remains unlikely to appear in Minnesota, home to more than 30,000 people of Liberian descent. Local health officials Sunday repeated earlier assurances that Twin Cities residents are not at risk of contracting the disease from recent immigrants or imported foods and merchandise. They, and a coalition of religious leaders who organized the information session at Elim Lutheran Church in Robbinsdale, urged that more information and education is needed to combat the stigmatization that has accompanied news of the disease’s rampage through Africa. “There are lots of students going back to school,” said Ellen Frerich,

“IT’S BEEN a great ride.” Those were Tony Auth’s words just two years ago, when the Pulitzer-winning cartoonist talked about his decision to retire, ending his remarkable four-decade run and reign at the Philadelphia Inquirer. At that time, Auth was brimming with joy and enthusiasm about the next phase of his career and life. At age 70, he had made the transition to drawing digitally, and he was eager to render iPad-sprung art for a new employer at an age when some people can’t wait to retire. For Auth, though, art seemed an ever-renewable resource. “Here I am, able to

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself. “If the NFL doesn´t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t

Former President Bill Clinton railed against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday and framed the midterm elections as more broadly about defining “the terms in which we will relate to each other and relate to the rest of the world.” Speaking at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-Iowa) annual steak fry fundraiser, Clinton said while much had improved in America, one problem still prevailed: “We don’t want to be around anyone that disagrees with us.” "We’ve got to pull this country together to push this country forward,” he went on to declare.
