Stop them, Mr. President

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your

Islamists with a WMD
Conservatives with the Constitution

It´s hardly been a secret who Leftists, including those in the Oval Office, think the real enemy is.

ISIS says they are back because Obama is bombing their people. Obama was not bombing and had withdrawn from Iraq. ISIS is barbaric, not smart, and their day is coming.

ISIS or ISIL or whatever they call themselves. Just another terrorist group funded by Uncle Sugar who just might come back and bite us in the posterior. An article on my Facebook page indicates they are also being supported by some of our allies.

Obama is putting his ideology above the safety of this country and its citizens and that is why he is so reluctant to do what is necessary. The ill winds are blowing and he is standing with the Muslims just as he promised. He would be doing nothing if he could, but negative political fallout is forcing him to act. Voting present as President is not working out for him. The job comes with the obligation to lead, make hard decisions and then follow through on them. Obama has never in his life had to do any of those things. His forte is talking trash about anyone who opposes him and that´s about it. He is not capable of taking on the responsibilities that come with the presidency. The perks are great, but the rest is just tooooooooo hard.

Obama´s "ideology" is what drives him to destroy America if possible. Our safety is not his concerns, the more dead Americans the better as far as he´s concerned.

In “Audacity of Hope” Obama writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

Now who do you think he favors?

Killing bin Laden was a political move. Even if that wasn´t bin Laden we killed - since we´ve never been given one smidgen of proof I have lots of doubts.

This time around, since he´s not on the ballot, zippy would rather give speeches to union thugs and fat cats, bashing Republicans, than take on IS. If he thinks this will help come November, he´d better think again.

Perhaps Obama´s ho hum response to the ISIS threat is his revenge for not being given his way, re attacking Syria. Obama: "Oh, so you did not want to take action before in Syria and now all of a sudden it´s blank check? Oh ho, oh no. I´ll smack there here and there or pretend to but wiping them out is not in the cards".

He´a a very vindictive type. The conflicting stances of Obama versus Biden is probably an attempt to confuse, keep everyone off balance. An Alinsky tactic? He is not keeping his oath of office but no one has the guts to arrest him.

Busting The Narrative

"At the 10 mark in the short clip with Greta Van Susteran, Senator McCain mentions a meeting the President held with his national security team in which all members reportedly “recommended arming ISIS.”

“Hillary Clinton has described already the meeting in the White House over two years ago… everyone in the national security team recommended arming ISIS and the President, by himself, turned it down,” McCain said.

Call our particular evil by it´s proper name- Democrats. Democrats are killing this Republic. Democrats cannot be trusted with securing the Nation from enemies, foreign OR domestic. Democrats are the root of our civic evil. Democrats will never put Americans or America first. Obama is first and foremost the personification of what the Democrat Party has become- an America hating pack of lying jackals. Sadly, only a handful of conscience-stricken Democtas can now save the Republic. We are as dust.

While I agree with all the sentiments that Barry is pro Muslim, hates America, etc .. I believe he is completely paralyzed when it comes to making a serious, adult decision.
He can´t even explain his thoughts on ISIS without contradicting himself three times in the same breath. When it comes to explaining his college bracket picks on ESPN , he speaks in a much more coherent fashion and it´s obvious he´s spent hours and hours studying the stats and watching tons of games. He has relied on Valerie Jarrett and Michelle for far too long to make the decisions for him. Because he is completely incapable and the stress is incapacitating him.
The drip , drip of Democrats and MSM pundits finally speaking out against his feebleness is beginning. When Al Franken criticizes him on ISIS as he did yesterday , look out for flying pigs . I think his pathological weakness , his confusion , laziness and total disregard of imminent dangers is finally scaring Democrats .
Ideology aside , Putin and Cameron look and act like leaders . Barry is in a flop sweat , literally . ISIS sees that, China sees that , Putin sees that , Al Queda sees that and more and more Americans and Democrats see that. Barry is psychologically and emotionally too unstable to stop ISIS , the time to do that was over a year and 50 golf games ago.

Funny, when most of us level-headed conservatives were growing up, an often reoccurring thought involved wondering if we would measure up as Americans when we matured and attempted to lead responsible, productive lives.

Now, it is the rest of America and all of its leadership that does not measure up to us, we have surpassed the sheep and the rabid wolves who prey on them.

If I believed this situation was permanent, I would buy a one-way ticket to the South Pacific but I believe we are going to become the real America again, after a long and bloody struggle of course. The goal is worth it.

Don´t look to Obama to stop ISIS. Its not in him. The question is how can it be fixed before 2016. Will his own administration overrule him? Will the house and senate (both parties) overrule him? Not likely. Not sure it will be fixed in 2016 either since its possible we will elect another Obama-like president.

He is creating a power void, but who will fill it? Don´t see anyone else in the world with the resolve or resources to eliminate ISIS.

What a screwed up mess.

Satellite photos show how the depredations of dictators have turned the world’s fourth largest inland sea into a poisonous desert. MOSCOW, Russia — Photographs that NASA released this week show the graphic chronicle of a natural disaster in Central Asia’s Kyzylkum Desert. The images from the Terra satellite feature the patches of water remaining in the disappearing Aral Sea, which was once the fourth largest inland sea in the world. They look dark green in 2001, light green in 2005, as the sea grew shallower, and this year they are all but gone. The seawater once covering 26,000 square miles vanishes

If you want to know why the American public has such a dim view of lawyers, you should read an opinion issued last month by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Williams v. BASF. The opinion describes the allegations of a class of onetime asbestos plaintiffs who claim that a BASF predecessor and lawyers at Cahill Gordon & Reindel conspired to cheat them out of their rightful recovery in decades-old asbestos suits. According to the plaintiffs, who have depositions and document evidence to back their accusations, Cahill and its former client, a BASF predecessor, systematically hid and destroyed evidence

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview.

As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives.

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.
