White House official: The
Islamic State is the next
administration’s problem

Hot Air, by Noah Rothman

The word of the day is “deliberate.” On Thursday morning, White House Deputy National Security Advisor Tony Blinken said that the Obama administration is seeking to combat the Islamic State threat, as it executes one “terrorist attack” after another against the United States, in a “deliberate” fashion. That’s a far more generous way of confessing to near paralytic dithering. Last week, President Barack Obama admitted that his administration does not “have a strategy yet” for attacking the Islamic State in its Syrian stronghold. On Wednesday, noting in the same speech that his administration would seek to “destroy” ISIS and/or “shrink” it into

I´m so very tired of these incompetent political hacks from the Obama regime. There is nothing in his background that should allow him to be a National Security Advisor.

So they´ve admitted that they´re abdicating their duties with two and a half years still to go? Just resign already and turn the job over to someone who cares enough to even try.

“This, as the President has said, is going to have to be a sustained effort,” Blinken said. “It’s going to take time, and it will probably go beyond even this administration to get to the point of defeat.”

OMG!!! Is this an echo of what GW Bush said about terrorism in general? Something that was dismissed by BO and liberals? A problem that BO minimized by saying that the Islamists were effectively defeated? The reason that BO was not too concerned to be pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan?

NOW we get the truth, that there is a terrorist movement, alive and well that will persist, despite our best efforts, for years?

The lying incompetents in this administration, lead by the Fraud in Chief, are disgusting. They are putting our country and the world at risk.

When one of these terrorists, that sneaks across our borders because BO and Holder allow them to, does major damage to our country, THEN can we hold BO accountable by impeaching him???

He isn´t going to fight them and they know it. That´s why they´re being so bold and aggressive. Frankly I think they have an understanding, he leaves them alone and they don´t screw up his last two years with terrorist attacks in the US (9/11 will be a big test of that theory).

Somebody pointed out to me yesterday that Obama´s speech only used passive tense. Someone has to attack ISIS, but it won´t be him. That´s his strategy, and it shows his personal allegiances which are overriding America´s allegiances and priorities. Treasonable and impeachable, but that will never happen.

Cardinal: U.S. ‘Creed’ on Gay Marriage

Cybercast News Service, by Michael W. Chapman    Original Article

Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago, said the levers of power in government, education, entertainment, and media are enforcing a “public creed,” a “fake church” that requires all citizens to approve of gay marriage and related sexual anomalies or be punished by the State, just “as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.” (Snip) The State, in the past, had “kept its promise to protect all religions and not become a rival to them, a fake church,” said the cardinal. But that has now changed, he said. “In recent years,

The continuing resolution that the House Appropriations Committee introduced yesterday and that the House Republican leadership is preparing to bring up for a vote on the House floor puts no limits on funding Planned Parenthood—the nation’s largest abortion provider—or any provision of Obamacare, including the regulations that force Christian individuals and organizations to buy or provide health insurance that covers abortion-inducing drugs. “The bill is ‘clean’ and does not contain highly controversial provisions,” says a press release put out by the Appropriations Committee. “We have reached the point where a Continuing Resolution is necessary to keep the government functioning and avoid another

ObamaCare in Senate races

The politically divisive legacy of ObamaCare has vulnerable Democrats trying to downplay their past support of the legislation ahead of Election Day – by criticizing the president’s execution of the law or by sidestepping the issue altogether. Lately, Democrats in tough Senate races have been slamming President Obama for breaking his pledge that everyone could keep their health plans and doctors "no matter what." Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, locked in a race with Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, says of Obama in a recent ad: "This is a promise you made. This is a promise you should keep." Landrieu previously offered legislation requiring people

Every week another lad or lass from St. Louis, Toronto or Sydney makes the trip through Turkey to the Islamic State. A reporter dispatched by a local paper to talk to the neighbors scribbles down the same recollections about how nice and normal Jihad Joe or Jihad Jane was. (Snip) The Somali and Algerian immigrants, the German and American converts, the black burkas and dyed beards, headed into the dying summer to kill Christians and Kurds, Turkmen and Shiites, to behead babies and crucify critics, don’t seem like monsters.

President Obama says he intends to shrink the al-Qaeda-spawned Islamic State into a “manageable problem.” Perhaps we’ll learn more about how when he speaks to the nation on Wednesday evening. Still, the question presses: Is he the manager for the job? (Snip) In late September 2012, Mr. Obama’s administration quietly approved the transfer of 55 jihadist prisoners out of the Guantanamo Bay detention center. As Tom Joscelyn explained at the time, most of the detainees had previously been categorized as “high risk” because they were deemed “likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests, and allies” if released.

Given what we know of President Obama’s speech tonight, Major Garrett of CBS News asks White House Spokesmodel Josh Earnest the $64,000 question — Why should anyone bother to watch? Garrett lays out all the bullet points the President will deliver tonight — no boots on the ground, no timeline, no cost information, no tactical operational details — in other words: nothing new. What’s the point of a speech, a primetime address to the nation, where no new information will be conveyed? Couldn’t the media just replay one of his old speeches on ISIS?

With more than two years left to go, is Michelle Obama ready to be a former first lady? Laura Bush seems to think so. The Washington Post has a profile on the busy post-White House life of Bush, a former first lady herself, in which she says she “could tell” Obama is thinking about leaving her current role behind. The Post interviewed Bush after she and Obama made a joint appearance at the Kennedy Center in early August.

The White House issued a veto threat Wednesday against a Republican bill that would allow consumers to keep health insurance plans that don´t meet Obamacare standards. According to the White House, the GOP bill sponsored by Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., “would roll back the progress made because of the Affordable Care Act and would allow insurers to deploy practices such as charging businesses more when a worker has a pre existing condition or when it has more workers who are women than men.” “The bill would allow insurers to go back to capping the amount of care that enrollees receive

The House passed legislation Tuesday that would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from implementing a proposed rule to define its jurisdiction over bodies of water. Passed 262-152, the bill would prohibit the EPA from using the proposal for any rulemaking regarding the Clean Water Act. The rule, proposed in March, sought to clarify which bodies of water, such as wetlands and streams, are subject to agencies´ authority under the act. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy has said the rule does not significantly expand the agency´s existing authority. Republicans said the rule would go too far and subject trivial bodies of water to

Town officials in Ferguson, Mo., have moved to create a civilian group to monitor cops there, who have come under fire since the killing of a black teenager on Aug. 9. The Ferguson City Council on Monday said the proposed Citizen Review Board would be made up of locals not connected to the police or government, and would work with city officials to oversee and improve the much-maligned department, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The 53-man force has been accused of racism and stoking long-simmering feelings of mistrust against the city´s mostly black residents — charges that exploded into days of rioting

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
