President Vineyard’s Big Day – Fundraising, ‘Somber ISIS Statement’, And Golf

golf obama

After giving a brief,  perfunctory statement on the brutal  beheading of an American citizen by ISIS,  the president hightailed it to the  game golf course with friends, Wednesday, including former professional basketball star Alonzo Mourning.

Obama declared that ISIS has “no place in the 21st century” — which coincidentally is the same thing he says about Republicans who oppose the “Equal Pay Act.” 

 

Buzzfeed Andrew reported:

“The president walked quietly into the cafeteria of the school, tieless but wearing a blue jacket,” read the latest White House press pool report. “Eric Schultz accompanied him. Obama stepped to a podium and delivered his remarks, then turned quietly and walked out of the room. The room was silent as he did.

“Afterward, the motorcade drove to the Vineyard Golf Club.”

But first things first. Before he faced the cameras to sound off about the ISIS menace, Obama sent out a fundraising appeal.

Via Daniel Halper, the Weekly Standard:

“Nothing has ever been more important than fighting for folks like you. You are my priority,” writes Obama.
“And right now, a focus of that fight has to be getting people who really care about making things better for you elected. The upcoming elections could determine whether or not we have a Congress who will work with me to help you.
“That’s why it’s so important I spend some time helping Democrats campaign and win. I can only tackle the issues that matter to you with some help. Will you help me out, Daniel?”

He asked for $3, $10, $25, $50, $100, or whatever else “folks” would like to donate.

During his address, today, he didn’t mention any specific actions  U.S. forces would take in Iraq moving forward.

Meanwhile, via Bloomberg News, five US  intelligence officials told reporters during a briefing  that ISIS is “attracting recruits and even drawing defections from the leadership of the core al-Qaeda group and some affiliates.”

The U.S. intelligence community thinks the Islamic State has an incentive to conduct a major terrorist strike against U.S. or European targets, in part to further assert itself as the true leader of radical Islam, the officials said. There’s evidence that the group is establishing cells beyond Iraq and Syria, they said.

Brett Baier of Fox News offers his analysis of Obama’s address, today.

If you read one thing today, it should be this by David Horowitz writing at Red State: The Hell That is the Obama White House:

The same desire to overwhelm and permanently suppress the opposition drives the war that Obama and the Democrats have conducted against America’s borders and therefore American sovereignty. Their plan is too flood the country with illegals of whatever stripe who will be grateful enough for the favor to win them elections and create a permanent majority in their favor. The immediate result of these efforts is that we have no secure southern border, and therefore no border; and therefore we have effectively invited criminals and terrorists to come across and do Americans harm.

Which brings us to the deepest level of Obama’s hell, which is his anti-American foreign policy. When Obama was re-elected in 2012, the very first thought I had was this: A lot of people are going to be dead because of this election. How disastrously right I was. Since their assault on George Bush and their sabotage of the war in Iraq, Obama and the Democrats have forged a power vacuum in Europe and even more dramatically in the Middle East, which nasty characters have predictably entered with ominous implications for the future security of all Americans.

Take one aspect of this epic default: Obama’s lack of response to the slaughter of Christians in Palestine, Egypt and Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been slaughtered and driven from their homes in Iraq – over half a million by some counts. This is the oldest Christian community in the world dating back to the time of Christ. What was Obama’s response to this atrocity until a group of Yazvidi along with the Christians were trapped on a mountain side, and politics dictated he had to make some gesture. His response was to do and say nothing. Silence. Even his statement announcing minimal action to save the Yazvidi and the Christians mentioned the Christians once in passing while devoting a paragraph to the obscure Yazvidi.

What this unfeeling and cold response to the slaughter of Christians tells us is that Obama is a pretend Christian just the way he is a pretend American. What he is instead is a world class liar. That is because his real agendas are anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Jewish, and obviously and consistently pro America’s third world adversaries to whom he is always apologizing and whom he is always appeasing. Obama lies about his intentions and policies because he couldn’t survive politically if he told the truth…

Governor Jay Nixon’s Disgraceful Rush To Judgement (Video)

Now I know why Obama said he wouldn’t “pre-judge” the Ferguson situation. He’s got his stooge, Governor Jay Nixon doing it for him.

Tuesday night he announced that  “a vigorous prosecution must now be pursued.”

“The democratically elected St. Louis County prosecutor and the Attorney General of the United States, each have a job to do,” he said.

This is eerily reminiscent of the time the president inappropriately “pre-judged” the IRS targeting scandal. “Not a smidgen of corruption? How would you know, as there’s still an ongoing investigation – unless some kind of fix is in?

Because toxic racial politics help Democrats at the ballot box, and this is an election year, someone is about to get railroaded big-time by the criminal conspiracy known as the Democrat party.

There is no other explanation for the outrageous statement made by Governor Jay Nixon Tuesday night, calling for “a vigorous prosecution” of the officer involved in the Michael Brown shooting before the investigation has been completed, the incident report has been publicized, and the toxicology report has come back.

Megyn Kelly asked Ferguson‬ Mayor James Knowles if he believes that the governor has made up his mind about the case.

“It sounds like it,” said Knowles. “That’s unfortunate, because Governor Nixon was our attorney general for 16 years, so, I would assume at this point he understands and knows what the process is.”

Kelly also had on the president of the Missouri Fraternal Order Of Police, Sgt. Kevin Ahlbrand what he thought about the fact that the governor is seeking “not just justice – but justice for Michael Brown.” 

He answered that he was “very disappointed to hear those words coming from Governor Jay Nixon. We welcome a vigorous investigation. Unfortunately, justice needs to go both ways,”   he said.

Later, she  had on former Justice Dept lawyer,  J. Christian Adams who wrote the book, Injustice, on the Holder DOJ. Adams had plenty to say about Holder’s influence in Ferguson – which said would be “toxic.”

“This is an Atty General who has carried around in his wallet for thirty years, a quote that says he shares common cause with the black criminal,” Adams declared, to Kelly’s shocked surprise. “What?!” she said in response.

Adams continued to say that Holder’s Civil Rights Dept has been “engaged in a war against police departments.”

“Members of the FOP know this already about Eric Holder.  They take the side of the lawless against the law abiding citizen, and we’re going to see that play out in Missouri.”

When Kelly read the outrageous race-baiting statement of a local  black politician, he said, “it’s a new America we’re living in, Megyn – it’s so toxic. It’s so rotted – it’s so dangerous. America has the greatest system of law and justice the world has ever seen. So what if this prosecutor’s father was killed by a black man.   This is part of this effort to make everything about race. The entire justice system they want you to believe is rigged on the basis of race. It’s toxic – it’s evil. It’s part of a coordinated strategy to undermine the foundations of law in this country.”

Kelly repeated her shock that the Governor made a statement prejudging the investigation. “Can you believe that,” she asked incredulously. “What is he doing?!”

Don’t expect Governor Nixon to behave with anything like honor or dignity in this mess. He has a history of abusing his prosecutorial power for political reasons when he was Missouri’s Attorney General.

Kansas City writer and journalist Jack Cashill has the full story on Nixon’s “War on Terror”, here. 

It has to do with him going after and throwing the book at a group of harmless Constitutionalists  – including a completely clueless 22 year old female, who was only at the pot-luck meeting because of her boyfriend.  One of them filed a lien against a  Judge because of what he perceived was abuse of his authority. They were all subsequently arrested for “harassing the judge.” The whole thing was a grotesque travesty of justice.

But left wing fantasies about right wing domestic terrorists were in vogue during the Clinton years, (as they are now) and Nixon was eyeing a Senate seat so he got his “terrorists.”

UPDATE: 

This could be a game-changer via Conservative Tree-House: 

A local Saint Louis radio station is reporting that Dorian Johnson has recanted his prior media espousals and now asserts that he and Mike Brown did indeed engage in a physical confrontation with Officer Darren Wilson.  As a consequence the same Radio Station is asserting the local prosecutor essentially advises it’s doubtful charges would be filed.

The Treehouse reports that Grand Jury charges are “unlikely”, but a Special Prosecutor may be assigned, anyway.

ISIS Supporters Reach Out To The Ferguson Mob

The  looters and rioters in Ferguson, Missouri have found a new ally in the murderous death cult ISIS.

ISIS militants and their supporters are using social media to egg the protesters on, encouraging them to embrace radical Islam and fight against the U.S. government.

On Monday night, during a CNN report, someone behind Jake Tapper held up an “ISIS is here” sign – shocking more than a few viewers.

isis sign

How badly did the MSM drop the ball on this? We get a screenshot from someone watching the CNN broadcast at home, but nobody on the scene sticks a microphone in his face? Did no one in the media  happen to notice the guy with the huge ISIS sign? (Those would be the genocidal maniacs who have been torturing,  beheading, crucifying, raping and pillaging  innocents in Syria and Iraq, for the past year or so.)  Did anyone in the media bother to interview the ISIS loon? If not – why not? Why is it that out of dozens of reporters on the ground in Ferguson – we only have a still shot from the CNN broadcast – and no story?  I’d like to know why some creep was out there holding an ISIS sign. And I would have liked to have seen him publicly shamed for it.

The Daily Mail reports that ISIS has been reaching out to the Ferguson mob primarily on Twitter.

The militants’ tweets denounce local officers for the way they have attempted to quell the violence, make reference to historic acts of police brutality, and even use the hashtag #FergusonUnderISIS in an attempt to get angry young men in the city to declare allegiance to the Islamist group.

***

One ISIS sympathiser calling himself Mujahid Miski, who claims to be from Minneapolis–Saint Paul but suggests he is now based in ‘the horn of Africa’, has led the campaign to encourage those taking part in the protests to embrace radical Islam.

In one message he tweets: ‘So how is democracy treating you guys? #FergusonUnderIS #Ferguson.’

He adds: ‘I thought u guys back in #Ferguson were supposed to be Free & that u had equal rights. I’d really like to know what changed? #FergusonUnderIS’.

Miski goes on to retweet dozens of messages by a Twitter user with the handle @AmreekiWitness, who claims to monitor and support the growth of radical Islam in the U.S..

Amreeki Witness’ messages focus on the treatment of black people in the U.S., praise Malcolm X for embracing Islam and urge angry young black men to take up the religion as it means the police ‘will fear you’.

In one message Amreeki Witness mocks the curfew police have imposed in Ferguson to bring an end to the disorder, saying: ‘We IS guys hate you for your freedom, eh? Just like that freedom uplifting curfew in #Ferguson? Wake up, or they’ll never let you outside.’

As the social media campaign began to take hold, with dozens of radical Islamists commenting on the Ferguson protests, Amreeki Witness tweeted: ‘May be time to organize the Muslims in America upon haqq and mobilize to #Ferguson. Defend the oppressed, start jihad here.’

The message attracted a large response, with one Islamist calling himself Amarka Al-Ahlam responding: ‘Preach, brother. We must organize brigades in preparation for the oncoming storm. #FergusonUnderIS #JihadinFerguson.’

Death Cult ISIS Beheads American Journalist

The bloodthirsty death cult that has been been carving a path of death and destruction in Syria and Iraq, beheaded an American journalist alive and on video, and is threatening to do the same to another captured reporter, American journalist Steven Sotloff unless Obama gives in to their demands.

They must want to drag the United States into a full scale war. Either that, or they’re taunting America –  knowing the once mighty nation has been hobbled by weak and ineffectual leadership. What’s President Vineyard going to do? Make another speech? Write a sternly worded letter? Draw another red line?

James Foley was reported missing in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day, November 22 2012.  According to numerous reports, he was kidnapped by unidentified gunmen.

A video, released by ISIS today,  shows Foley being beheaded alive by one of their demon-possessed mutants.

 

Via John Nolte, Breitbart:

In the ISIS produced video, which is titled “A Message to America,” a man identified as Foley is seen on his knees, dressed all in orange, in the desert. He has a small black microphone clipped to his collar.

Standing over him is man dressed all in black, including a black turban that covers everything but his eyes.

The Islamic State opens with video of President Obama announcing military action against ISIS in Iraq. ISIS then accuses the president of being on a “slippery slope against Muslims.”

Via the Find James Foley website, he was the oldest of five children. By all accounts – a good and decent man.

He has reported independently and objectively from the Middle East for the past five years. Prior to his work as a journalist, Jim helped empower disadvantaged individuals as a teacher and mentor assisting them in improving their lives.

People are offering their condolences in the comment section.

I’m not going to link to the video. I don’t want to see it. I don’t want you to see it, either, because the rabid freaks who did it want us to see it.

Instead, here’s Foley in June of 2012, talking about the war atrocities of the Assad Regime. He clearly had sympathy for the Free Syrian Army – before they became overrun with Islamic terrorists.

UPDATE:

The Kelly File report on the killing of Foley:

There is intelligence, Catherine Herridge reported,  that they have two other Americans in custody.

UPDATE:

Here’s someone on Youtube who has just about had it with Obama’s vacationing while the world descends into chaos.

“Your vacation is over, sir! You have a job to to do you are the leader of this country! Get yo ass outta Martha’s Vineyard and get back to work!”

 

Hamas Breaks Latest Ceasefire – Israel Retaliates (Video)

Earlier this morning, Breitbart’s Joel Pollak fretted that the time may have passed for Israel to take out Hamas because it was “becoming less clear that Israel could still count on the political will or the international patience that would allow it to remove Hamas from power.”

But it seems Hamas’ hatred for Jews overrides any strategic considerations on their part.

It took about ten minutes for Hamas to make my previous column obsolete byfiring rockets at Israel, thereby violating the ceasefire (again) and forcing Israel to pull out of negotiations and retaliate against Hamas targets.

Hamas has–as in the initial decision to go to war–overplayed its hand. The only force unifying Israel’s fractious political leadership and keeping the hypocritical hyenas of international criticism at bay is Hamas itself.

Holder Decries Release Of “Sensitive Information” In Michael Brown Case (Video)

And by “sensitive information”, he  means – the liqueur store robbery surveillance video – the suppression of which allowed the false “gentle giant” narrative to take hold.

This Attorney General is a piece of work, isn’t he?

Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement Monday following his briefing of President Obama on the latest developments in the federal civil rights investigation in Ferguson, Missouri:

“As I informed the President this afternoon, the full resources of the Department of Justice are being committed to our federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown.

“During the day today, more than 40 FBI agents continued their canvassing of the neighborhood where Michael Brown was shot. As a result of this investigative work, several new interviews have already been conducted.

“Moreover, at my direction, an additional medical examination is being performed on the body of Michael Brown. This autopsy is being performed today by one of the most experienced medical examiners in the United States military. I am confident this additional autopsy will be thorough and aid in our investigation.

“In addition to updating the President on these developments, I informed him of my plan to personally travel to Ferguson Wednesday. I intend to meet with FBI investigators, and prosecutors on the ground from the Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney’s Office officials about the ongoing investigation.

“I realize there is tremendous interest in the facts of the incident that led to Michael Brown’s death, but I ask for the public’s patience as we conduct this investigation. The selective release of sensitive information that we have seen in this case so far is troubling to me. No matter how others pursue their own separate inquiries, the Justice Department is resolved to preserve the integrity of its investigation. This is a critical step in restoring trust between law enforcement and the community, not just in Ferguson, but beyond.

On Monday night’s “Kelly File”, Megyn Kelly had on Tom Dupree, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Bush administration, to comment on Holder’s handling of the case.

He said, “it’s interesting that Holder has so personally injected himself into this case – not only in trying to suppress the release of this video – but also in criticizing it – it’s  very carefully camouflaged criticism – but it’s criticism nonetheless. In Holder’s view, the police shouldn’t have released that videotape.”

Kelly asked him what he thought about the fact that Holder has sent FIFTY FBI agents to investigate “this one case.”

Dupree said, “it’s extraordinary Megyn. There’s no other word for it – I’ve never seen anything like this. A single victim – fifty FBI agents flying in from Washington and other destinations – all coming to interview people within a very small neighborhood.” He added, “I think they want to insulate themselves from any possible criticism that they haven’t put all the resourses of the Federal Government and the DOJ on the field to – in their view – bring the perpetrator to justice.”
