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.

He looks half in the bag with the energy level of a garden snail.
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.

Arguably the world´s best chess player ever, Garry Kasparov is on a new mission. He hopes to convince the world that the biggest threat to global unrest is not the Islamic State, al-Qaida or North Korea. Instead it is Vladimir Putin, Russia´s president from 2000 to 2008 and then again from 2012 to today. In an interview with Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga, Kasparov outlined his reasons for believing that Putin should be what keeps the world up at night. He chided President Barack Obama for being too late in addressing Putin´s aggression in Ukraine — ultimately annexing

Phoenix - Federal authorities who have pushed back against Arizona´s attempts to confront illegal immigration in recent years face a Tuesday deadline to comment on two state immigration policies being scrutinized by the courts. The Obama administration is scheduled to provide input in a challenge of Gov. Jan Brewer´s policy that denies driver´s licenses to certain young immigrants who have avoided deportation under a change ordered by the president. White House officials are also expected to urge a judge to throw out Arizona´s 2005 immigrant smuggling ban. Brewer and the Obama administration have clashed over illegal immigration before, most notably

The USMC is preparing to deploy 2,100 Marines to Kuwait under the auspices of Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force (SPMAGTF). The deployment was planned before the current "conflict in Iraq and Syria with the Islamic State" began. According to Defense News, Colonel Kenneth DeTreux said the SPMAGTF will be deployed in "fiscal ´15." They will have "attack aircraft, the AV-8B Harrier, and support aircraft such as the MV-22 Osprey and KC-130 Super Hercules." The SPMAGTF "will be equipped to perform noncombat evacuation, humanitarian assistance, infrastructure support, tactical aircraft recovery, fixed-site security and theater sustainment missions." But DeTreux made clear that

President Obama will deliver a speech on "America´s economic greatness" Thursday at Northwestern University in Chicago as the White House looks to refocus attention on the economy ahead of the midterm elections. Obama will "take a step back from the rush of current events to explain what we´ve done to recover from the Great Recession and what we need to do to ensure that more middle-class Americans feel that progress in their own lives," senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an email to supporters. The president will also tie America´s economic prosperity to its ability to project leadership across the

Northeast loses 40% of House seats
as people flee high-tax states

The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend. The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington. Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the

Aides say a number of high-ranking African-American congressional staffers have left in recent years, leading to a dearth of diversity on the Hill. The Obama era hasn’t been a period of progress for black Capitol Hill staffers, and aides say a “diversity drain” of many senior African Americans to the private sector and the White House in recent years is partly to blame. “I started on the Hill 10 years ago, and I don´t see a significant difference in the number” of black congressional staffers, John Jones, the chief of staff to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, told The Daily Beast. “[Progress]

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson faced a tough inquiry by lawmakers today as she appeared before a House committee to answer questions about the Sept. 19 White House security breach in which a man armed with a knife entered the executive mansion. "It´s clear that our security plan was not executed properly. I take full responsibility. What happened is unacceptable and it will never happen again," Pierson told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in her opening remarks. She said she was committed to a full review and implementing recommended changes. She sat opposite committee members just as new

DENVER — State health officials confirmed a tenth case of paralysis affecting children who have recently had respiratory infections. Medical experts made the announcement Monday at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. Dr. Sam Dominguez says outside of the respiratory problems, there is no common link between cases. “There are no commonalities as far as where they live, schools or day cares they attend.” The hospital says before Monday, four of the children admitted tested positive for enterovirus 68, and four others for the rhinovirus (which causes the common cold). The other was not tested. The patients range in age from

60,000 Syrian Kurds fled their villages as ISIS advanced in northern Syria in September. But, leftists believe the real threat in Syria is not ISIS. It’s global warming. In fact, the left believes climate change created ISIS and imperils Afghan girls who want to attend school. Yes, really. Charles B.

The Department of Agriculture, the agency that administers the food stamp program, has announced that it will spend $31.5 million on a new program that will promote a healthy diet for recipients of the assistance. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, a division of the Department of Agriculture, is developing the program to urge recipients of the SNAP food stamp program to choose more fruits and fresh foods. "Too many struggling families do not have adequate access to nutritious food," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Monday.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
