Obama’s Gonna Give Another Speech

scoamf

So tonight the nation will be tuning in to hear the president’s prime time address outlining his long awaited “strategy” to deal with ISIS  in Syria and Iraq.

Who has the stomach for this?

He watched for years as the Islamic State become a formidable new terrorist power and did nothing. For a full year, it’s been obvious that the Islamic State rampaging through Syria and Iraq was a major threat – not only to the region but to free peoples everywhere.  It was only after a particularly vicious summer of terror  in Iraq, culminating in the beheadings of two Americans, that the president deigned to pay them any mind at all – before promptly heading back out to the golf course.

Even the lowest of lofos have figured out by now that ISIS is a problem. So as others have said, tonight isn’t about Obama rallying the nation – it’s about the nation  rallying him to do something, already.

So. What do you suppose we’re going to get, tonight?

Here’s what we’re not going to get.

1. There will no mention of securing our porous borders. Sure it’s a huge national security weakness and our most sentient citizens are concerned about it. Guess what. Obama’s committed to open borders. So no – he’s not interested in securing our borders. There will be no mention of fixing this massive vulnerability because he doesn’t see the few terrorists sneaking across the border along with the thousands of future Democrats as enough of a problem to stop the flow of future Democrats. It’s that simple. Hundreds – perhaps thousands will die so Obama can fulfill the progressive dream of permanent one party rule.

2. “No boots on the ground” to placate his far left moonbat base. The enemy thanks him for his consideration.

3. No admission that pulling the troops out of Iraq was a monstrous mistake that cost thousands of lives.

4. No admission that he was wrong when he grossly underestimated ISIS.

What we will get.

1. An attempt to blame the mess on “the previous administration.”

2. An attempt to convince us that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism.

3. He will continue to use the term, ISIL rather than ISIS when virtually no one outside his administration does – just to be different and annoying.

4. He will refer to himself – me, myself and I – to a nauseating degree.

5. He’ll tout the broad coalition of countries supposedly joining us in the effort (tentatively – because they don’t trust him, nor should they) while suggesting that “previous administrations” acted unilaterally.

6. Lies. (No explanation as to why I would expect this is needed at this point, I would think.)

7. Reportedly, he will urge Congress to quickly give him authority to arm moderate Syrian opposition forces fighting President Bashar Assad.

This is a problem because the moderate rebels and ISIS have joined forces in Syria. That’s why ISIS was seen  parading in 43 New Toyota Hilux Trucks in the Caliphate – Donated By US Taxpayers. They’ve been using US weapons for months.

 

He may or may not say something about the common sense  legislation Republicans have proposed preventing Americans who joined and fought with ISIS from returning to the United States.

He will want to oppose it, because it’s the right thing to do and because to his mind it helps the real enemy –  Republicans.  He may go along with it anyway out of political expediency. There is an election coming up.

For some honest, hard-hitting re-ax watch CNN. They’ve got a new political analyst debuting tonight. Squeee!

The problem most Americans have with Barack Hussein Obama when he gives any speech, is the fact that they know they can’t trust his word.

Megyn Kelly last night, focused on Obama’s total lack of credibility by focusing on a couple of his more egregious lies. She wonders is he deceiving the American people – or worse – himself?

Answer: He’s an Alinsky trained, ends justify the means progressive, who will shamelessly lie to our faces with malice and aforethought.

 

 

Video: Sen. Ted Cruz Pushes Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014

Monday, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas,  filed the Expatriate Terrorist Act (E.T.A.) of 2014 to prevent Americans who join ISIS from returning to the United States.

 “We should take common sense steps to make fighting for, or supporting ISIS, an affirmative renunciation of American citizenship. We know today that there are over a hundred Americans who have joined ISIS, who have taken up arms alongside the Jihadists, along with thousands of others from the European Union. And we also know that they are trying to return to their countries of origin to carry out terrorist attacks there. We know this because on May 24, an ISIS member returned to Belgium, where he attacked innocent visitors at a Jewish museum, slaughtering four people. And it was reported today that he had been plotting an even larger attack on Paris on Bastille Day. In addition, on August 11 of this year, an accused ISIS sympathizer, Donald Ray Morgan, was arrested at JFK airport trying to reenter the United States. Mr. President, we know that this threat is real.

“Mr. President, that is why I have today filed legislation, the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014, which would amend the existing statute governing renunciation of United States citizenship to designate fighting for a hostile foreign government or foreign terrorist organization as an affirmative renunciation of citizenship. By fighting for ISIS, U.S. citizens have expressed their desire to become citizens of the Islamic State, and that cannot and will not peacefully coexist with remaining American citizens. The desire to become a citizen of a terrorist organization that has expressed a desire to wage war on the American people, has demonstrated a brutal capacity to do so, murdering American civilians on the global stage and promising to bring that Jihad home to America. We should not be facilitating their efforts by allowing fighters fighting alongside ISIS to come back to America with American passports and walk freely in our cities to carry out unspeakable acts of terror. It is my hope that the legislation I’m introducing today will earn support on both sides of the aisle, that we will see this body come together and say while there are many partisan issues that divide us, when it comes to protecting United States citizens from acts of terror, we are all as one.”

Why this legislation is necessary via The Conversation: State Dept: Fighting With ISIS Doesn’t Automatically Mean Your Passport Will Be Revoked.

In Great Britain, where an estimated 500 British citizens have traveled to Iraq and Syria to fight with ISIS, Prime Minister David Cameron is pushing for Parliament to pass tough new sanctions, including passport seizures and banning Brits who join the jihadists from returning home.

We’re not yet seeing a similar push in the United States from the Obama administration.

Earlier this year, Rep. Michele Bachmann asked the FBI, what would happen when terrorists from her state tried to return home. She revealed the answer she got on the Glenn Beck Show.

“Two from my state were the first Americans who were fighting for ISIS,” Bachmann told The Glenn Beck Program on Tuesday. “I had gone earlier this year and asked the FBI, ‘Are there any Minnesotans that are over fighting with ISIS?’ It was classified information at the time, I couldn’t reveal it. Now everyone knows.”

“At that time, these two hadn’t been killed yet. So what I asked is, ‘OK, once they’re done fighting with ISIS, what’s going to happen if they try to return?’ And they said, ‘Well, they’ll come into the country.’ Are you kidding me? We are not going to prevent them from coming into the United States?’”

During a press briefing on Sept. 2, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki was asked if joining a designated terrorist group was something for which you could lose your passport.   She answered, “it’s not as black and white as that.”

Two days later, State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf admitted that being a member of a designated terrorist organization “does not automatically mean your passport will be revoked.”

Watch James O’Keefe Demonstrate How Easy It Is For ISIS To Cross Our Northern Border

As we approach the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks – with terror alerts flashing red everywhere but at the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security – Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe brings us the unsettling results of his latest investigation.

Last month I crossed the border dressed as Osama bin Laden. Today we released a follow-up investigation.

It was so easy to cross into the United States from Mexico, we began asking questions about the Northern border. After all, British intelligence believes more than 500 British citizens have joined ISIS, and British citizens can enter Canada without a visa.

Frankly, we were disheartened by what we found.

 

Over and over again Obama has demonstrated that he is more interested in protecting Muslims from being “profiled” than he is in keeping the American people safe.

Here’s the tally of terror attacks on US soil that have taken place since Obama took office.

May 2009, Binghamton NY: N.Y. Shooting Massacre
June 2009, Little Rock, AR: Military Recruiting Center Shooting
November 2009, Fort Hood, TX:Fort Hood Gunman Who Killed 12, Wounded 30 Survived Gun Battle
December 2009, Detroit, MI: Panty-bomber, Northwest Airlines Flight 253

March 4, 2010: John Patrick Bedell, a Muslim convert, shot and wounded two Pentagon police in Arlington County, Va.

May 2010, NYC: Faisal Shahzad, Times Square Attack
September 2012: Benghazi terror attack on US Consulate in Libya
April 2013: The Boston Marathon bombing

This represents quite an uptick since Bush left office. What changed?

As blogger AJ Strata noted in April of 2010, the Obama Administration Confused national defense and criminal defense.

When President Obama was candidate Obama, his national security team was clear that they were going to roll back the Bush hair-trigger defenses and do things very differently. They were adamant to prove we were not really at war, and that we could fight the bloody-mad Jihadists using courtrooms and prosecutors. Their naivete knew no bounds.

The Obama administration decided early on that  they knew enough about the threat to adjust Bush’s early warning network to be much less intrusive on suspects. Strata noted that “they were arrogantly wrong. Their changes introduced openings that al Qaeda and its allies exploited with surreal success.”

Other than enacting more intrusive policies on everyday Americans, it doesn’t look like the administration has changed it’s national security posture at all,  since then.

Multiple terrorist groups are determined to hit us again on 9/11/2014 and the Obama administration hasn’t even bothered to raise the threat level. Instead, we’re going to get another worthless  Obama speech on 9/10.

Steve Emerson: Holder DOJ ‘Handcuffed’ the FBI From Investigating Islamic Extremism In US (Video)

Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism  said on Justice With Jeanine Pirro, Saturday night,  that there are now 300-400 American Volunteers fighting for ISIS. (The US State Dept. says there are only 12. Defense Sec. Hagel says about 100,  and Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, says hundreds.)

He told Pirro, “they can return to the United States any time they want. (Currently, there is no policy in place to revoke passports of Jihadists, but Republicans in Congress are working on legislation to address that.)

The FBI has been handcuffed in terms of investigating religious extremists in mosques as a result of guidelines put out by the Attorney General earlier, this year.” He added,  “there is a definite problem in investigating those militants in the United States who are either recruiting for ISIS or have returned from Syria or Iraq having fought for ISIS, ready to carry out freelance or directed terrorist attacks on behalf of ISIS against the United States.

Asked by Pirro to elaborate, Emerson said, “the Department of Justice has put out guidelines that restricted the FBI and other other law enforcement agencies from using religious actors in identifying National Security threats to the United States…”

His portion of the video begins 5:00 in:

According to The Center For Security Policy, back in January, the DOJ was poised to  “prohibit religious profiling in terror cases,”  completely blinding federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism.

Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to “Islam” and “jihad” from its counterterrorism training materials. It’s also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques.

But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations.

Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups, who have all lobbied the administration for them. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has seen several of its officials jailed on terror-related charges, calls it “a step in the right direction.”

Appearing before the Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee in 2012, CAIR demanded the administration remove religion as a factor in terrorism investigations, even though just four years earlier Justice had named CAIR an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.

The Islamic Society of North America, another designated co-conspirator, hailed the move as a civil-rights victory worthy of praise from “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

The timing couldn’t be worse. Experts say that if anything, the U.S. should be expanding its terrorist profile to include radical Muslim women along with men. Russian intelligence warns female suicide bombers are threatening next month’s Winter Olympics.

The FBI missed the Boston Marathon bombings because it failed to focus on radicalized local Muslims. The only way law enforcement can effectively head off future attacks — including possibly the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey — is by gathering predictive intelligence in the Muslim community — namely, inside mosques.

Holder cut off these investigative avenues for the FBI, “as well as for border agents charged with protecting the nation from Islamic extremists at airports and land crossings.”

Bill Gertz, Washington Free Beacon:FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism: Internal report labels white supremacists, black separatists, militias, abortion extremists main domestic extremists…

Surreal…

The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.

Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam.

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.

ISIS Has A Training Camp For Kids as Young As 10 Years Old (Video)

Democrats like to use the educational system as a recruitment tool – targeting the young minds and filling them with liberal propaganda with the hope that their efforts will lead kids to become lifelong liberals.

It turns out – ISIS uses the same strategy.  As the death cult rolls through towns and villages it Iraq and Syria,  they are filling young skulls full of mush with radical Islamist propaganda and subjecting them to ideas and behaviors of which their parents likely disapprove –  behaviors like stonings, beheadings, and crucifixions.

 “Recruitment” usually goes something like this: “Bring your kids to the ISIS children’s camp, or we’ll behead you in front of them. Then we’ll take them anyway, so you might as well come willingly.”

Once in the camps, the kids are essentially brainwashed – radicalized into the ISIS way of life.

Yesterday, CNN ran a heartbreaking, harrowing, report which featured a 13-year-old boy who’d managed to escape one such facility. I don’t have much to say about it, except that it’s incredibly sad. These kids simply have no choice.

Retired General McInerney: U.S. Helped Build #ISIS

As I was saying yesterday….

“In Syria I believe we backed some of the wrong people,” retired General Ralph McInerney said on Fox News, Wednesday. “I’ve always maintained going back some time that we were backing the wrong types.”

On Friday, Fox News’ Brett Baier is going to have a special which McInerney claims will show that some of the weapons funneled through Benghazi to Syria, ended up in the hands of ISIS.

“We helped build ISIS,” he declared.

Don’t believe that Obama was taken by surprise by ISIS. He’s known who they are and the threat they pose for years.

The Washington Post: The terrorists fighting us now? We just finished training them:

In recent years, President Obama, his European friends, and even some Middle Eastern allies, have supported “rebel groups” in Libya and Syria. Some received training, financial and military support to overthrow Muammar Gadhafi and battle Bashar al Assad. It’s a strategy that follows the old saying, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” and it has been the American and allied approach for decades in deciding whether to support opposition groups and movements.

The problem is that it is completely unreliable — and often far worse than other strategies. Every year there are more cases in which this approach backfires.

“From IS to the Mahdi army you see groups that basically are not our friends but who became more powerful because we have handled the situations wrong,” says a senior U.S. security official, who spoke under the condition of anonymity.

Abu Saleh, who is originally from a town close to Benghazi, said he and a group of other Libyans received training and support in their country from French, British, and American military and intelligence personnel — before they joined the Al Nusra Front or the Islamic State. Western and Arab military sources interviewed for this article, confirmed Abu Saleh’s account that “training” and “equipment” were given to rebels in Libya during the fight against the Gadhafi regime.

Abu Saleh left Libya in 2012 for Turkey and then crossed into Syria. “First I fought under what people call the ‘Free Syrian Army’ but then switched to Al Nusra. And I have already decided I will join the Islamic State when my wounds are healed,” the 28-year-old said from a hospital in Turkey, where he is receiving medical treatment. He had been injured during a battle with the Syrian Army, he said, and was brought to Turkey with false documents.  “Some of the Syrian people who they trained have joined the Islamic State and others jabhat al Nusra,” he said, smiling. He added, “Sometimes I joke around and say that I am a fighter made by America.”

For a long time, Western and Arab states supported the Free Syrian Army not only with training but also with weapons and other materiel. The Islamic State commander, Abu Yusaf, added that members of the Free Syrian Army who had received training — from the United States, Turkey and Arab military officers at an American base in Southern Turkey — have now joined the Islamic State. “Now many of the FSA people who the West has trained are actually joining us,” he said, smiling.

No, the enemy of our enemy is not our friend. Sometimes they are even bigger enemies.

The Washington Examiner: Chuck Hagel: More than 100 Americans fighting for ISIS:

More than 100 Americans are fighting with the extremists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday.

“We are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with [ISIS] forces. There may be more, we don’t know,” Hagel told CNN in an interview.

Authorities have been concerned that Americans and citizens of other Western nations could potentially return and launch terror attacks in their home countries.

Rand Paul: I Am Not An Isolationist:

Three years after President Obama waged war in Libya without Congressional approval, Libya is a sanctuary and safe haven for training and arms for terrorists from Northern Africa to Syria. Our deserted Embassy in Tripoli is controlled by militants. Jihadists today swim in our embassy pool.

Syria, likewise, has become a jihadist wonderland. In Syria, Obama’s plan just one year ago—and apparently Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s desire—was to aid rebels against Assad, despite the fact that many of these groups are al-Qaeda- and ISIS-affiliated. Until we acknowledge that arming the Islamic rebels in Syria allowed ISIS a safe haven, no amount of military might will extricate us from a flawed foreign policy.

Unfortunately, Obama’s decisions—from disengaging diplomatically in Iraq and the region and fomenting chaos in Libya and Syria—leaves few good options. A more realistic and effective foreign policy would protect the vital interests of the nation without the unrealistic notion of nation-building.

Second US journalist Beheaded By ISIS – Obama Enraged

article-2740998-20FF5FDA00000578-117_634x409

Obama’s former allies in the war against the Syrian Regime released a video Tuesday that shows the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff – God rest his soul.. The Islamic State fighter seen in the video said the murder is retaliation for the Obama administration’s continued airstrikes in Iraq.

Via the Daily Mail:

Sotloff is the second American journalist to be killed by ISIS, and his death comes two weeks after James Foley was executed in a similar video.

In the video entitled ‘A Second Message to America,’ Sotloff appears in a orange jumpsuit before he is beheaded by an Islamic State fighter.

The executioner appears to be the same man who killed Foley – known as ‘Jihadi John’ – and tells the camera: ‘I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State.”

He also threatens to kill a Briton held hostage by the group next.

British Prime Minister David Cameron condemned ISIS, Tuesday afternoon, calling it ‘an absolutely disgusting and despicable act’.

He said he will chair a COBR meeting on the threat to a UK citizen tomorrow, and added: ‘My thoughts and prayers are with Mr Sotloff’s family and friends tonight as they deal with this appalling and tragic situation.’

Obama is said to be absolutely outraged.

But not at ISIS, mind you. Did you expect our president to promptly make a strong statement like the British Prime Minister did?

I’m sorry, no – I have no idea what he thinks about the beheading of Steven Sotloff. The National Security Council deputy spokeswoman did express condolences to his family and friends. But Obama doesn’t seem to get too emotional about the beheadings of American journalists. The last time it happened, he gave a brief statement before heading to the golf course where he was seen grinning and fist bumping with his celebrity golf partner less than an hour later. Today, he left for Andrews Air Force Base en route to a NATO Summit in Wales – without bothering to make a statement.

The focus of Obama’s rage is Israel – the country that has “just been hit by several thousand unguided rockets and 30-odd terror tunnels, a 50-day war, the forced closure of its one major airport, accusations of “genocide” by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, anti-Semitic protests throughout Europe, general condemnation across the world. This is the country that is the object of the president’s rage.”

Israel’s atrocities include defending itself against terrorist attacks and insulting Obama’s hapless Sec. of State John Kerry.

Via Keith Koffler of WHD, The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens reports that President Obama is “enraged” at the Israeli government:

Barack Obama “has become ‘enraged’ at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. ”

So reports the Jerusalem Post, based on the testimony of Martin Indyk, until recently a special Middle East envoy for the president. The war in Gaza, Mr. Indyk adds, has had “a very negative impact” on Jerusalem’s relations with Washington.

Think about this. Enraged. Not “alarmed” or “concerned” or “irritated” or even “angered.” Anger is a feeling. Rage is a frenzy. Anger passes. Rage feeds on itself. Anger is specific. Rage is obsessional, neurotic.

And Mr. Obama—No Drama Obama, the president who prides himself on his cool, a man whose emotional detachment is said to explain his intellectual strength—is enraged.

The president made no statement about the Sotloff beheading before boarding Marine One this afternoon on his way to Andrews Air Force Base, en route for Estonia and the NATO summit in Wales.
