President Barack Hussein Obama!

 The Noisy Room:  Barack Obama for his ‘Latte Salute’ of his Marine guard this past week. It was one of the most disgraceful, disrespectful things I have ever seen. The salute reveals Obama’s true feelings towards the military and his contempt and utter disrespect for our warriors. How very un-presidential… how very un-Commander-in-Chief.

While it is protocol for U.S. service members in uniform to salute the Commander-in-Chief, it’s not required for a civilian president to salute back, military experts say. Ronald Reagan is thought to have set precedent for the practice back in 1981, so this is also a slap at Reagan. The salute is not required, but expected by Americans and the military. Since Obama is also left handed, some looked at this gesture as calculated. He did it with his right hand. By the way, Obama is a tea drinker normally, not a coffee drinker.

The Independent Sentinel: I have to name Barack Obama again. He blamed the intelligence community for his refusal to act on the ISIS threat during a 60 Minutes interview Sunday.

“Well, I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama told Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes.
Everyone in the world who is paying attention knows he’s lying.

*********************************************************

Congrats, Mr. President! The statuette of shame is yours, and richly deserved!

Accepting the award for the president was one Armando Perez, who claimed he was the president’s golf caddy. The only ID he had on him was a Mexican  Matricula Consular card, but I figure if that’s good enough for ICE and the DHS it’s good enough for us.And at least he wasn’t coughing and didn’t have any running sores or anything…

Ledeen: Obama Sent Emissary To Tehran in 2008 To Assure Mullahs He Was A Friend To Iranian Regime

Middle East foreign policy expert Dr. Michael Ledeen was on the Mark Levin Show,  Wednesday night to discuss Obama’s history of appeasement with Tehran. Ledeen told Levin that Obama sent former Ambassador William G. Miller to Tehran in 2008 to let the mullahs know that his regime would be a friend to the Iranian regime.

Via Gateway Pundit, Michael Ledeen wrote about Obama’s secret meetings with Tehran on August 29, 2014.

During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.

He told Levin this was no secret – he’s mentioned this many times before. But it was the first time Levin had heard it – and likely the first time most in his audience had heard it, too.

Obviously, it shouldn’t be a surprise this president (with Iranian BFF and advisor Valerie Jarrett) would do this – we saw Obama’s amenity toward the Iranian Islamic Regime manifest itself during the Green Revolution of 2009 – when when US support for the people who were protesting in the streets could have made a difference.

Many of us writing about it at the time were shocked and disgusted that instead, this president went  out for ice-cream.

Megyn Kelly Interviews Whistleblower From Oklahoma Mosque That Beheader Alton Nolen Attended

A man who claims he went to the same mosque as the Oklahoma beheading suspect, discussed his experiences there on “The Kelly File,” Wednesday night. He no longer goes there, because he says it is too radical – but at the end of the show he dropped an interesting nugget after admitting that he had been back there a few times since he left –  most recently in 2011 . “The reason I was there was at the request of law enforcement – and that’s all I can say than that,” he said.

It doesn’t matter if he blew his cover – the Holder Justice Department is poised to issue a policy change banning religious profiling and the surveillance of mosques in terror probes in order to protect the religious liberties of the radical Islamists bent on world domination..

The former mosque member, going by the name, “Noor”  (he wanted to remain anonymous for obvious reasons), blew the whistle on the very radical culture at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, where Alton Nolen/Yakeem Yisrael  attended. No one from the mosque agreed to speak on camera – a Fox reporter on the scene in Oklahoma City said a rep from the mosque was originally slated to speak to him, but CAIR intervened and called the interview off. (Breitbart National Security recently reported on the close working relationship between CAIR and the ISGOC.)

Citing Taqiyya -the teaching that allows Muslims to deceive outsiders – he noted that members of the mosque project a moderate image for the media – but open up about Islam’s true objectives amongst themselves.

Via Fox News Insider:

“I observed the teachings of Islam […] to the public, the mosque will not promote terrorism or any kind of radical acts, but when they’re among friends and congregants only, they will promote the true teachings of Islam, which include the offer to non-Muslims – the choice, rather – that you must convert, live under Islamic rule or be fought against,” he said.

He said he had two friends at the mosque who told him that if Osama bin Laden were to come to their doors, they would let him in and protect him.

Megyn Kelly asked: “Did the mosque talk about speaking differently in front of the media?”

“Absolutely,” he said. “When they cannot do jihad physically, they attempt to do jihad by means of stealth, by endearing themselves to the media, endearing themselves to government, endearing themselves to the American people to slowly work their way in.”

“They all believe in their religion which teaches that according to the Haddith […] when you approach the nonbelievers you must offer them a choice to convert, pay a jiza, or poll tax, and live in submission or you will be fought against which is what you see with ISIS and al Qaeda and various other groups throughout the world,” Noor explained.

Megyn questioned how everyone at the mosque could be that radical.

He answered, “As Ayan Hirsi Ali said, herself – A Muslim will choose how much of their religion they wish to practice.”

The person who told Noor about the concept of jihad and the choices that must be offered to non Muslims, was Imam Suhaib Webb who is now the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston – which was attended by the Tsarnaev brothers during his tenure as Imam.

He said Imam Suhaib Webb was the one who told him that he shouldn’t talk about suicide bombings in Israel (which they support) to the media, and had told him about the concept of jihad – the teaching that Islam allows three choices to be made to non Muslims and “eventually they’re all going to have to make that choice – to convert, live under Islamic rule, or die.”

Note that Nolen tried to have his co-workers convert to Islam before he returned with a knife to wage jihad.

Vocativ: ISIS Supporters in America: The Jihadis Next Door?

Vocativ has found dozens of Americans around the country who openly support ISIS. And they’re all followers of a radical Michigan-based cleric.

In recent months, as ISIS began executing Western hostages and dialing up multiple threats to attack property and citizens in the U.S., Vocativ’s analysts have been using our deep web technology to uncover a potential ISIS presence in America.

Two Americans have been charged in the past month with allegedly attempting to hatch attacks against American targets on behalf of ISIS, and an Oklahoma man named Alton Nolen beheaded a co-worker last Thursday at a food distribution plant. Colleagues say Nolen had been actively trying to convert them to Islam, and his Facebook page is riddled with radical missives like “Sharia law is coming!”

Over the past few weeks, Vocativ’s analysts have been able to home in on a network of ISIS supporters in the U.S. We’ve found dozens of Americans who openly support the militant Islamic group.

In many ways, they’re just like you. They post selfies on Twitter and Facebook, share memes, hang out with friends. They talk about their favorite TV shows, movies and music. They share news about their families.

But they’re also pledging support to the brutal regime seeking to establish an Islamic caliphate across the Middle East.
