Obama And Holder Release Messages For Ferguson Mob And Law Enforcement

Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, both outgoing (finally!)Attorney General Eric Holder and Emperor Obama released messages warning law enforcement to behave themselves.

“The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder said.

“Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust.  And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible, and have brought vital issues to the attention of the public at large,” the Holder said in a video.

(That’s a fascinating take since the shooting sparked months of  violent protests, property destruction and looting in Ferguson, and law enforcement officials there have been bracing for more violence  after the decision is announced.)

“I know, from first-hand experience, that demonstrations like these have the potential to spark a sustained and positive national dialogue, to provide momentum to a necessary conversation, and to bring about critical reform.”

Full transcript, here.

What does he mean by “implicit bias?” Stopping a suspect who fits the description of a person who just robbed a convenience store? Should the police just stop doing their jobs so as not to show “implicit bias”?

And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this “national dialogue” Holder wants to inflict on the nation isn’t the pro-law and order dialogue you and I would prefer. The cringe-inducing term “critical reform” applies to law enforcement - not law breakers. 

NYC is slowly becoming the crime-infested sewer it was in the 70s and 80s because Communist Mayor Bill De Blasio is undoing  all the good policing practices instilled by former Mayor Giuliani. Holder and Obama would like to see those  policies duplicated in all of our cities, God help us.

Barack Obama

In Emperor Obama’s message  to the people of Ferguson, Missouri, he at least pretended that he wanted his minions out there on the street to “keep protests peaceful.”

“I think first and foremost, keep protests peaceful,” Obama said in the interview, which was taped in Las Vegas after he delivered a speech about immigration.

“This is a country that allows everybody to express their views, allows them to peacefully assemble, to protest actions that they think are unjust,” Obama said. “But using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to rule of law, contrary to who we are.”

Why isn’t the president telling these people to go home and stop rabble-rousing, since he knows that the evidence exonerates Officer Wilson?  The fact that the Grand Jury has been examining all of the evidence and is making an informed decision –  means justice is being done in Ferguson? What on earth is there to protest? Why isn’t he trying to correct mistaken impressions instead of  trying to excuse them? Because oh – in the end – all this turmoil that he and Holder seem to be welcoming – will lead to “critical reforms.”

Lest we forget, the Emperor was once a Community Organizer, himself – and it shows.

Update:

Some Obama allies in the New Black Panthers have been indicted on weapons charges in Ferguson.

Via Gateway Pundit: 

On Friday Olajuwon Ali and Brandon Muhammad were indicted in federal court for illegal firearms purchase — in a bomb plot.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

Two men have been indicted on weapons charges in federal court here for allegedly making straw purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood.

The indictment was handed up Wednesday and unsealed Friday accusing Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis of making false statements to obtain firearms. The defendants’ ages and addresses were not made public.

According to local News 4 the two men were arrested in connection with a plot to explode pipe bombs during protests.

As you may remember, the New Black Panthers are the Militant group that Holder refused to prosecute back in 2009 after some members engaged in what one prominent civil rights activist described as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, including the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.

Again, in 2012, the Holder Justice Department looked the other way when the New Black Panthers in Sanford Florida,  put a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head and distributed  wanted dead or alive fliers. The Zimmermans had to live in fear in Sanford, just as Officer Wilson has gone into hiding in Ferguson – with a bounty also put on his head.

This is not how Justice works in a free country.

UPDATE II:

Excuse my French, but you have got to be shitting me. I did not just see this via the Independent Sentinel: 

Ferguson-mental-health-tips

It’s a joke, right?

UPDATE III:

Via Got News, another disgraceful example of the pressure the Grand Jury is under to indict Officer Wilson – which is the only reason this is taking so long.

In an audio interview with WUNC, the new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus called for Darren Wilson to be indicted and prejudiced the Ferguson grand jury.

Former judge and new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus G. K. Butterfield called for the grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown and warned that there would be consequences if the jury “turn their back on justice.”

UPDATE IV:

Tell me again how “meaningful and responsible” these protests are?….

Gateway Pundit: Breaking: #Ferguson Protesters Cause Car to Smash Into Pole (Video)

Ferguson protesters were out en masse Friday night chanting and walking in the middle of the street.

A group of protesters were chanting when they forced a car off the road into a pole.
The car did not seem to slow down when it smashed into the pole.

The weather is turning nicer in Missouri – which doesn’t work in civilization’s favor.

Krauthammer: Exec Immigration Action ‘A Flagrant Assault on Constitution’ and ‘An Impeachable Offense’

On “The Kelly File” tonight, Charles Krauthammer once again blasted the president’s planned executive action on illegal immigration, going so far as to say it is “an impeachable offense” but without recommending that he be impeached for it.

After Megyn Kelly showed a clip from 2011 of Obama telling a liberal audience that he can’t suspend deportations via executive actions because there were laws on the books and to not abide by those laws would not conform with bis “appropriate role as president.”

“It is very clear that what he’s doing now as he has said many times in the past, is a flagrant assault on the Constitution, on the separation of powers,” Krauthammer said of the president.

Krauthammer noted that he’s sure Attorney General Eric Holder was able to find lawyers who say that this action is OK.

“As we know, if you’re a district attorney, you can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this is the equivalent,” he said.

He advised Republicans to fight it tooth and nail but not to lose their heads over it and shut down the government.

“We’re in unprecedented territory, Kelly noted, making the point that no president has ever done anything like this, before, and that’s why people want congress to call out that perceived lawlessness and do something as politically unpopular as impeachment.”

Krauthammer agreed with the premise, saying, “look, I believe it is an impeachable offense.” But he stopped short of recommending impeachment, which in the past he has said wouldn’t work and make the president a martyr.

He continued, “this idea of prosecutorial discretion is really a travesty. It is intended for extreme cases – for a case where you want to show mercy for an individual or two where it’s unusual… circumstances and you say, okay we’re going to give this person a pass. It was never intended to abolish a whole class of people subject to a law and to essentially abolish whole sections of the law.”

Megyn Kelly expressed her disgust with Obama’s excuse for taking the illegal action, whining “we really want this, it’s time. The Republicans didn’t do it. We tried to get it passed in congress and we couldn’t. Therefore the president must act.”

“That’s they way the system works in Venezuela. Krauhammer declared. “If the Caudillo isn’t able to get stuff done through congress, he issues a decree –  and that’s it –  and he’ll arrest anyone who gets in the way. The whole American system is designed so that there has to be a collaboration between congress and the president. Congress has to pass it and he has to sign it. That’s the way the damn thing works.”

He added, “you can’t say I waited and waited”  which Krauthammer noted is cynical of the president given the Democrats held congress for two years, and it didn’t get done.

Jonathan Gruber and His Defenders Think Their Audience Is Stupid

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.” Jonathan “Grubby” Gruber, University of Pennsylvania in October, 2013.

As the media circles the wagons around Jonathan Gruber, Obama and ObamaCare, it’s really important to remember one key thing. They – like the people they’re trying to protect – think their audience is stupid. Media Matters, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, think that their readers’ confirmation bias makes them easy to fool, aka- stupid.

That line in the WaPo article has since disappeared – and has been replaced with:

Gruber’s comments were part of a broader public conversation between him and economist Mark Pauly on the economics of health care reform. Gruber was responding to a remark by Pauly about financing transparency in the law and the politics surrounding the ACA’s individual mandate. The political process, he said, striking a critical tone, resulted in inefficiencies in the law which should be corrected.

“In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which explicitly said that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed,” he said. “You can’t do it politically, you just literally cannot do it. It’s not only transparent financing but also transparent spending.”

 Gruber went to the Regime’s propaganda arm MSNBC to explain his comments  and apologize for the confusion on Tuesday afternoon during an on-air interview with Ronan Farrow.

“The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” Gruber said. “I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those comments.”

Although Gruber apologized for the language he used, Gruber said that the larger point he was trying to make centered on the political pressures that shaped the law. He added that those pressures “led to an incomplete law with some typos.”

The typos would later lead to “speak-os” as evidenced in the American Commitment video Gruber vs Gruber. (Watch with the words, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass”…in mind.)

Note, that Gruber had chosen again to appear on the Regime’s propaganda arm to peddle this howler: “It is unambiguous this is a typo. Literally every single person involved in the crafting of this law has said that it’s a typo, that they had no intention of excluding the federal states.”

What Gruber said in January of 2012 was specific, detailed and in direct conflict with his later typo and speak-o claims.

And what he says is exactly what challengers to the administration’s implementation of the law have been arguing—that if a state chooses not to establish its own exchange, then residents of those states will not be able to access Obamacare’s health insurance tax credits. He says this in response to a question asking whether the federal government will step in if a state chooses not to build its own exchange. Gruber describes the possibility that states won’t enact their own exchanges as one of the potential “threats” to the law. He says this with confidence and certainty, and at no other point in the presentation does he contradict the statement in question.

Remember what I said yesterday, about the low opinion elites like Gruber have of the “American people” – not us, of course. Not conservatives because we were never fooled – but the lofos and liberals like those in the dwindling MSNBC audience . The guy peddles his BS where the Obama dead-enders congregate. They will apparently believe anything.

Buckle Up: The Ferguson Saga To Climax As Soon As This Weekend

The Ferguson/Michael Brown saga is panning out just about how you expected it would after the first pieces of solid evidence came out back in August. I reserved judgement, like I always do when racially charged  stories like this one hit – because if we’ve learned one thing over the years – it’s that the initial narrative that comes out is almost always completely bogus.   The story the racial agitators told about an unarmed “gentle giant” with his arms up in the air, getting plugged with lead by an insane racist cop is the horse hocky you always suspected it was.

The same evidence we eventually saw, our president and attorney general saw – and they opted to rub raw the wounds of racial animus with the hope that it would lead to electoral success in the midterms. It didn’t. But it did lead to millions of dollars in property damage and massive social unrest.

Too many Americans of all races see what is going on – Communists, Islamists, Occupiers and other radicals streaming into the area and with the acquiescence of the Obama administration, using extortion to advance their agenda.

Case in Point: St. Louis University. The Jesuit institution found David Horowitz in 2010  too radical to be allowed a platform to speak on their premises, but four years later welcomed with open arms the Ferguson-linked “Occupy SLU movement.” Talk about a perfect mark for these brazenly opportunistic radicals.

On October 8th the black grievance industry (BGI) helped the Ferguson protesters coordinate the Occupy SLU movement at Saint Louis University. SLU is a private catholic university. Yesterday the occupiers packed up and left. Today the motives and agenda becomes clear.

The BGI extorted the school to give race-based concessions including payoffs for black students, scholarships, black studies programs and additional aid for black students only. Apparently, the school president, Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., acquiesced:

stlu-blackmail

 

In exchange for meeting the extortion demands the Occupy movement would leave the school campus – but the school, not the occupiers, would have to clean up their mess.

Saul Alinsky would be proud. Clearly the Attorney General is – he sent a a letter of high praise to St. Louis University President Fred Pestello, commending him for his handling of  the Occupy SLU protest.

After mid term shellacking Part Deux, who do you suppose  the first people Obama met with at the White House were? If you guessed “a group of the nation’s most egregious racial agitators” - you are correct.

“President Obama huddled with top civil rights leaders at the White House on Wednesday, hours after his party lost control of the Senate”….

Attendees at the meeting included NAACP president Cornell Brooks, National Urban League president Marc Morial, and Rev. Al Sharpton.

Nobody can predict with 100% certainty what the grand jury is going to decide, but it’s looking increasingly like officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted (nor should he be.) That decision could come as early as this weekend.

RUMORS SWIRLING – MIKE BROWN DECISION THIS WEEKEND

Obama and Holder are getting their ducks in a row in preparation for that result.  You can expect the DOJ’s “Community Relations Service” to be heavily involved in Ferguson when the bomb hits. Their job won’t be to quell the flames but to make excuses for them.

The CRS activity as written would have you believe they are a civil rights entity whose primary purpose is to keep the peace and racial harmony amid potentially explosive social events like the Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown shootings.

Historically that’s a fair interpretation of their original intents.  However, since Attorney General Eric Holder took charge of the DOJ they have taken on a divergent goal.

The former head of the CRS, Ondray Harris, (quoted in the above statement) actually quit working for the federal government because President Obama and Eric Holder forced a very specific racial agenda into the agency.   The CRS was changed from aiding and assisting civil rights challenges, to a position of advocating for the professionally black.

The CRS is now primarily focused on controlling the “optics” of the various civil rights groups; they are, in essence, in the public relations business.   In the Eric Holder era we have to change the descriptions to give more accuracy to the new reality.

Has the Regime’s extortion racket  kicked into high gear? The Magic 8-ball says “You may rely on it.”

Via Gateway Pundit, meet  Bassem Masri, one of CRS’s projects: a Hamas fan and vocal Ferguson protester, who was arrested for assaulting a police officer:
Bassem Masri

Bassem Masri posted video where he verbally assaulted police in Ferguson, Missouri.
Now he’s charged with assaulting a police officer.

***

On Wednesday Bassem Masri tweeted out that he was contacted by Holder’s DOJ and will meet with them to discuss police reform.

What sort of concessions do you suppose the Obama/Holder/racial grievance cabal are going to try to wrench out of the Ferguson police Dept. “or else?”

As the Conservative Treehouse (a font of valuable information on Ferguson and Trayvon Martin) noted, CRS has it’s work cut out for them as the PR firm for the thugs running rampant in Ferguson.

So far, for the CRS, the Saint Louis/Ferguson mobs have been difficult to protect from their own broadcasted image.  But they are expending massive resources in/around the area to diffuse the imagery of rioting and looting black mob violence ahead of the Grand Jury no-bill decision.

The imagery is the most important aspect, this will be the primary focus.  Remember the CRS is no longer in the business of racial healing – their mission objectives now are to protect the public image of the black grievance industry; they are the PR firm.

CRS members are difficult to spot, but if you know what too look for -and you remember the goals- you will be able to identify the CRS members as they appear.

They are usually AME church members, civic leaders, or professional leftists and community organizers, many from the immediate area who are focused -primarily- on racial issues.   About half of the CRS activists will be from the outside Saint Louis as they operate based on regional areas of responsibility; the other half will be contracted and paid from within the local community.

The “community” had a meeting, last night, and sent one of their own to the hospital – a misguided white college student, who has been marching in unity with the agitators and videotaping them for his live-stream channel.

From the Justice for Mike Brown Facebook page, in the agitators own words:

The meeting we had earlier at the church at 9950 Glen Owen Dr, St Louis, MO, alot of us attended the meeting but what happened with the attack on a peaceful protester was wrong and should have been handled a different way. Some of us already know that no live-streaming is allowed at the meeting and but when they told him to stop live streaming he probably didn’t hear or understand and when everbody just rushed him and told to stop live streaming and get the F××k out and then all of sudden he gets jumped and attacked. He is a student at UMSL college and he has been out there with us protesting on regular nights. Some of us know who he is, his name is Chris Schaefer, and NO, he’s not working with the police, he is on our side. But like I said again, for some of yall to just attack him having him, running down Chambers St towards West Florissant to the Walgreens scared for his life and he steady screaming crying and flagging down cars asking for help, but he only gets help when he runs inside the Walgreens, that was wrong and F××ked up it really was he was they took him to the hospital by ambulance to be treated for injuries. That’s making us look bad, the ones that come out to protest peacefully, smh, and he is white but that don’t mean to attack him like that! We have supporters of all races!

Holder’s partner for police reform, Bassem Masri defended the attack on Twitter.

Yo this had nothing to do with the kid being white,in STL if u don’t respect some1 saying don’t record us & u record,u asking4 it

Here is Schaefer’s pathetic hospital room statement:

The Youtube comments reveal God-awful racial divisions the likes of which we  haven’t seen since the 60s.

I hope the Community Organizer in Chief is proud.

 SEE ALSO:

The Daily Caller for more on Bassem Masri and the meeting he attended on Thursday.

 He does not make clear which DOJ meeting he attended, but the timing coincides with a two-day event being held by the agency’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) division.

The stated goal of that meeting, which was closed to the press, is to “build trust and strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve is the first of several regional collaborative reform trainings on law enforcement strategies and best practices.”

Masri wrote after the meeting on Thursday that “DOJ said the Administration is FULLY aware of the national anger against law enforcement” and that it planned to implement any reforms it enacted in Ferguson “on a national level.”

If the DOJ’s goal with the session is to bolster the relationship between the community and local police, Masri seems to be an odd choice to provide guidance.

St. Louis’ local Fox affiliate profiled Masri last month, calling attention to his aggressive stance towards police.

“What you doing here, bro?” Masri is heard saying during one of his live streams to a St. Louis police officer on Oct. 8, the night another black teenager, VonDerrit Myers was shot by an off-duty police officer.

“Get the fuck out of here with your coward ass boys!” Masri shouted. ”Your life is in danger, homie, you gotta go.”

“I’m praying for your death, and your death and your death,” Masri said, calling out individual police officers.

In another confrontation with police, Masri compared officers to the brutal terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

“I see ISIS in front of me,” Masri said to officers before expressing his support for another terrorist group, Hamas.

“Hamas? They’re real men. You go stand with Hamas and see if you’re going to stand a day,” said Masri.

Masri first gained national attention when, on Oct. 20, he shut down a CNN live broadcast in Ferguson because he and other protesters thought the network was biased.

“You’re all run by Zionists,” Masri shouted at CNN anchor Sarah Sidener.

“They’re all run by Israel, so they’ve all got to go,” he is heard saying while filming the encounter for his live stream.

The guy’s rabidly anti-police, anti-Israel, and pro Hamas. No wonder the Regime is reaching out to him. I’m surprised they haven’t given him a job in the Civil Rights division of the DOJ.

“A Criminal Organization Masquerading As A Political Party” Part 7,692

The Democrat party has been accused of being “a criminal organization masquerading as a political party” but the New York Democrat party in recent days has taken the party’s mob-like tendencies to a new extreme.

Via the New York Post:

Democrats are telling voters that they had better head to the polls — or else.

The New York State Democratic Committee is bullying people into voting next week with intimidating letters warning that it can easily find out which slackers fail to cast a ballot next Tuesday.

“Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record,” the letter says.

“We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.”

It ends with a line better suited to a mob movie than a major political party: “If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”

The letter and accompanying post card was criticized even by party members, with one Democratic consultant saying it was the wrong way to inspire votes.

“It’s a threatening letter. It’s a scare piece that is unnecessary and inappropriate,” the insider said.

The threatening letter has created a backlash – look at the number of times the above tweet was retweeted.

Democrats in Brooklyn and Manhattan who received the note were reportedly furious, calling it “an attempt to browbeat them into showing up at the polls.”

“I’m outraged. Whether I vote or not is none of your business!” said a Manhattan voter, who was so incensed that she complained to a local Democratic leader.

“The letter is ludicrous and menacing,” said the voter, who requested anonymity. (Please don’t give them my name!)

Party sources say Governor Cuomo, who is highly favored to win his race against Republican Rob Astorino, is not behind the shame letters.

But Astorino scoffed, “Andrew Cuomo’s thuggish tactics just crossed the line into creepy territory . . . Threatening and intimidating people is not how honorable elected leaders operate.”

 

Goodlatte: There’s Increasing Evidence the WH Plans To Transport Ebola Patients From W Africa To US For Treatment

On the Kelly File, Monday night, Ed Henry reported on the growing controversy regarding the use of quarantines for Americans returning from West Africa. The White House is, of course, against quarantines and travel bans for doctors and nurses returning to the states after treating Ebola patients – basically any common sense action that can protect Americans they have a knee-jerk aversion to. The Pentagon on the other hand, is mandating 21 day quarantines for returning troops even thought they haven’t been in “the hot zone” in direct contact with patients.

Suspicion is growing that the White House is planning to bring Ebola patients from West Africa to the United States for treatment without consent from Congress.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte wrote to the president, last week, asking about those plans, and is still waiting for a response. Meanwhile, as Kelly notes, we’re hearing news that the Pentagon is building portable isolation units that can transport up to 12 Ebola patients on military planes.

“And the Pentagon says these are not meant for the troops who are serving on the Ebola mission.”

“There’s increasing evidence that they’re making those plans,” Goodlatte said. He claimed they received information about the plans from people within the administration.

Got News: #Ebola Nurse Complaining About Quarantine is Left-Wing Democrat, CDC Employee WITH UPDATE

The nurse currently quarantined in New Jersey is an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and a registered Democrat with a history of left-wing advocacy, Gotnews.com has learned.

Kaci Hickox’s ties to the CDC were not disclosed in a controversial anti-quarantine column she wrote for the Dallas Morning News. The CDC opposes quarantines or travel bans from Ebola infected countries.

Initially turned down for Doctors Without Borders, Hickox applied for a position with the Centers for Disease Control’s infectious disease unit. She received that position and began a two-year fellowship in Las Vegas, NV where she currently still works.

Hickox’s travels as a nurse took her to Myanmar, Cambodia, and Nigeria and convinced her of the importance of quarantines and “health surveillance,” according to the University of Texas-Arlington newsmagazine. “I realize that we need to find better ways to improve health surveillance and outbreak response in settings with poor resources,” Hickox said. “My training in the EIS with the CDC will allow me to learn the gold standard of this kind of work.”

But Hickox, who is a registered Democrat in Nevada, is ignoring health surveillance as she pushes back against a mandatory quarantine for persons working with ebola in West Africa.

Late Night Links: Reactions To Obama’s UN Speech

obama-unjpg

Joseph Curl, Washington Times: Obama’s breathtaking naivete at the United Nations:

Of course he waxed poetic about “climate change” and the promise of “the children,” but the president was forced to devote the bulk of his speech to what he called the “heart of darkness” and the “cancer of violent extremism.”
He said upon opening his remarks that “the shadow of world war that existed at the founding of this institution has been lifted.” He couldn’t be more wrong. A true man of peace worthy of the Nobel Prize, Pope Francis, said just the opposite this month in remarkably astute comments to commemorate the anniversary of World War I.

“Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction,” the pope said, summing up the conflicts in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Israel, Gaza and much of northern Africa, including Libya and Tunisia, not to mention Somalia.

To Mr. Obama, there’s no global conflict of ideology, just “pervasive unease in our world.” To him, the strife is merely the “failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world.” And to him, “it is one of the tasks of all great religions to accommodate devout faith with a modern, multicultural world.”

Breitbart: Obama at the UN: Don’t Blame ISIS:

In what could have been a seminal wartime address to the nations of the world at the UN today, instead of rallying the West and her regional allies against the barbarity of the Global Jihadist Movement, President Obamachose to reinforce the administration narrative that America’s deadly enemies are a product of local injustices.
Since 2008, the Obama administration has promoted the argument that what we face in the guise of Al Qaeda, or ISIS, or any other part of the global Jihadi coalition, is simply “Violent Extremism” that grows out of “local grievances.”

This is Beltway speak for an academic idea called Social Movement Theory. (If you want the full history behind this idea and who pitched it to the White House, here is a piece on its origins).

In short, this view sees the violence of jihadi groups against Christians, Yazidis, or even fellow Muslims, as a reaction to the injustice endemic in their societies. Years of oppression by Saddam, Maliki, or the Assad family will inevitably lead to religious genocide and mass slaughter when circumstances allow (e.g. after US forces leave Iraq).

Ben Shapiro, Breitbart: Obama Defends Islam, Smacks Israel at UN:

Obama laid out a four-pronged plan for fighting terrorism.
First, he said that ISIL had to be “degraded, and ultimately destroyed.” And once again, he emphasized that ISIL was not Islamic, and once again, he ruled out utilizing American troops.

Second, Obama said that Muslim communities had to “explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL.” In the process, he praised Islam as part of a family of religions that “accommodate devout faith with a modern, multicultural world,” and added that “All religions have been attacked by extremists from within at some point, and all people of faith have a responsibility to lift up the value at the heart of all religion: do unto thy neighbor as you would have done unto you.”

His solution: talking about how ISIL and al Qaeda and Boko Haram are bad. Obama’s faith in words is absolutely unshakeable, as he made clear: “The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day.” Hilariously, Obama explained that the UN Security Council would pass a resolution about combating “violent extremism,” but refused to explain what steps would actually be taken to do so, instead putting that discussion off for “next year.”

Third, Obama stated, sectarian conflict must end. How? Obama didn’t say. But he did pooh-pooh Muslim sectarian conflict as the religious norm:
There is nothing new about wars within religions. Christianity endured centuries of vicious sectarian conflict. Today, it is violence within Muslim communities that has become the source of so much human misery. It is time to acknowledge the destruction wrought by proxy wars and terror campaigns between Sunni and Shia across the Middle East. And it is time that political, civic and religious leaders reject sectarian strife. Let’s be clear: this is a fight that no one is winning.

Flipping through his trusty rhetorical playbook, Obama neglected any realistic solution to these sectarian conflicts, but did come up with this hackneyed chestnut:

Cynics may argue that such an outcome can never come to pass. But there is no other way for this madness to end – whether one year from now or ten. Indeed, it’s time for a broader negotiation in which major powers address their differences directly, honestly, and peacefully across the table from one another, rather than through gun-wielding proxies. I can promise you America will remain engaged in the region, and we are prepared to engage in that effort.

Fourth, Obama proposed, Arab and Muslim countries had to focus on “the extraordinary potential of their people – especially the youth.” He said that young Muslims “come from a great tradition that stands for education, not ignorance; innovation, not destruction; the dignity of life, not murder. Those who call you away from this path are betraying this tradition, not defending it.” That is the same message Obama and his minions have been braying for years at this point. No one, apparently, is listening.

And then Obama dropped the other shoe. After spending fifteen minutes blabbering about the glories and wonders of Islam, even as he decried extremism and sectarianism, Obama proceeded to blame Israel for conflict in the Middle East…

Wherever the bad guys have been caught and prosecuted successfully, you will find Emerson working quietly behind the scenes as an invaluable ally of the FBI and Homeland Security. Because he accepts no money from the government, Emerson has been free of the diktats of the Obama administration that have forbidden the FBI to train their sights on Muslim terrorists. (That means The Investigative Project needs yourhelp to continue its work.)

In the words of U.S. Representative Pete Hoekstra, Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:

The Investigative Project on Terrorism is critical to our nation’s security. There is no other non-governmental group that has better intelligence or data on the threat to the United States and our allies. Making do with a bare bones budget, the IPT is a national treasure whose influence and achievements are unparalleled. our FBI agents, they could not combat the Islamists in our midst without Steven Emerson. Oliver “Buck” Revell, former head of FBI Investigations and Counter-Terrorism, said as much in these words: “The Investigative Project has been one of the most important sources of accurate and timely information on the real goals and objectives of the wide spread and powerful Islamist movement.”
