As ISIS Seizes Ramadi and Palmyra, Obama Fights ManBearPig (Video)

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is calling on the Obama administration to come up with a “more aggressive strategy” to deal with ISIS/Daesh in Iraq. The apocalyptic terrorists now control the “key, strategic” city of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar Province.

“The black flags are flying there,” McCaul told Fox News Wednesday morning. “This is a key transit point to Syria in Iraq, and now it’s fallen to ISIS.”

McCaul said that during his recent visit to Baghdad, Iraq’s prime minister told him after asking the White House for more military assistance, he has only received received humanitarian assistance. Whatever that means. Suitcases for impromptu road trips? Extra absorbent towels to wipe up the blood?

But it gets better. Obama’s new BFFs on the world stage now get to flex their muscles in Iraq.

“And now the prime minister of Iraq has to rely on the (Iranian) Shia militia — which is, I think, the most disturbing fact…my takeaway from the Middle East — because his Iraqi national army is so incapable of defending Ramadi, of defending Mosul…that you have to rely on the proxy of Iran, Shia militas, to come in to Iraq to fight ISIS.”

Those Shia militas of course would be our sworn enemies during the Iraq war – who American soldiers died fighting.

“This is a prescription for disaster — it will only inflame the Sunni tribes, make the sectarian divisions even deeper and wider, and I don’t see it as a long-term strategy to win.”

McCaul said the Obama’s adminsitration’s strategy — “whatever the strategy is” — is not working.

It almost looks like Obama is setting up a show-down between Iranian Shia Militias and the Islamic state.

John McCain took to the Senate floor today to blast administration toadies for playing down the Ramadi “set-back.”

Referring to White House Press Sec Josh Earnest’s recent comments, McCain seethed, “how could anyone say that we shouldn’t light our hair on fire when news reports clearly indicate that there are burning bodies in the streets of Ramadi, that ISIL are going from house to house – seeking out people and executing them. Tens of thousands of people are refuges. And what does the president’s spokesman say?! That we shouldn’t light our hair on fire every time there is a setback.”

Shoebat on the door to door carnage in Ramadi.

Muslims in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, all members of ISIS, went door to door slaughtering innocent people at random, eventually killing 500 people at the end of their murder spree. According to one report:

ISIS fighters went door-to-door looking for military troops and security forces after taking the city, and killed 500 people in the streets, including children.

Muhanad Haimour, an Anbar Province spokesman, said:

There have been executions in the streets of Ramadi… The situation in the city is absolutely terrible. The city is in very bad shape.

Sheikh Rafi al-Fahdawi, a tribal leader from Ramadi who had been fighting ISIS, recounted the scene of horror:

Men, women, kids and fighters’ bodies are scattered on the ground… All security forces and tribal leaders have either retreated or been killed in battle. It is a big loss.

In Syria –  as I’m sure you’ve heard by now – the ancient city of Palmyra fell to ISIS – and ”its grand complex of 2,000-year-old colonnades and tombs – one of the world’s most magnificent remnants of antiquity,” will soon be destroyed by the barbarians.

This comes just five days after they seized the Iraqi city of Ramadi.

But for the fighters on the ground, the city of 50,000 people is significant because it sits among gas fields and astride a network of roads across the country’s central desert. Palmyra’s vast unexcavated antiquities could also provide significant revenue through illegal trafficking.

Control of Palmyra gives the Islamic State command of roads leading from its strongholds in eastern Syria to Damascus and the other major cities of the populated west, as well as new links to western Iraq, the other half of its self-declared caliphate.

the State Department is deeply concerned about all of this and will be closely watching the destruction of the city.

When a reporter asked her if something could be done to save the city, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said, “Well, we are deeply concerned about reports of ISIL’s attacks on the Syrian city, which holds the ruins of Palmyra.”

She acknowledged that “the destruction and looting of these sites has been sort of something we’ve seen in other places” and it’s “incredibly harmful,” but as to the question of what the U.S. could do, Harf only had this to offer:

“We’ll keep watching here, we’ll keep seeing what’s happening on the ground.”

Harf added: “This is the reason we’re trying to push back ISIL out of Iraq and to try and help the Syrian opposition push back ISIL in Syria.”

“This is something we’re following; we’re concerned about this. Obviously, it has been caught in the crossfire for some time and we’ll speak up about it,” said Harf. “Beyond that, I’m not sure what more can be done.”

PJ Tatler: In the Wake of ISIS Gains in Iraq and Syria, POTUS Says Climate Change Poses “Immediate Risk To Our National Security”

The threat of terrorism in the homeland ranks pretty low in this president’s list of issues to be concerned about. In case you haven’t noticed.

“Climate change” is apparently the national security threat that keeps Obama up at night. And those who refuse to act on this crucial national security issue are guilty of “a dereliction of duty” and should be denounced for undermining “American readiness.”

He gave this delusional speech at the  at the commencement ceremony of the United States coast guard academy in New London, Connecticut.
The only saving grace to this hot mess  is the light, tepid applause Obama got at the end – which is typically what Commander in Chief gets when he speaks in front of military audiences – because they don’t buy his bullshit.

Wis. Retired Cop: Hyper-Partisan DA Said It Was His Responsibility To Stop Scott Walker and Republicans (Video)

On Thursday night’s Kelly File, Megyn Kelly interviewed two individuals who are connected to the infamous John Doe Raids in Wisconsin, in which private citizens were persecuted by a vindictive, hyper-partisan DA for “nothing more than exercising their right to support conservative causes.”

Head of Wisconsin Club For Growth Eric O’Keefe, told Kelly that his friends were attacked for their “virtue” and “effectiveness.”

“Because the left was tired of losing election after election after election – they correctly identified some of the most important communicators of political messages in Wisconsin, and they raided their family homes with kids at home. They knew the kids were home – they knew the schedules – they came in the dark…”

Michael Lutz, a decorated former police officer who knew District Attorney John Chisholm,  stated that Chisholm admitted to him that the investigation was entirely political.

“In a personal conversation in his office, he had stated that he believed that it was his personal responsibility to stop Governor Walker and all Republicans from continuing to support ACT 10,” Lutz said.

O’Keefe was speaking out in defiance of the “secrecy order” which he noted was unconstitutional. He declared that he has sued Johm Chisholm because “he’s not fit to serve in public office.”

When Kelly pointed out that Chisholm has denied any wrongdoing, Lutz replied, “this is why I came forward in the first place because through the conversations and through what I witnessed in the district attorney’s office, John Chisholm had become so hyper-political and hyper partisan, he had weaponized his district attorney’s office to go after and prosecute and persecute all those who had a different ideology than him.”

He added, “it’s just so unAmerican and disgusting what’s going on, here.”

Kelly covered the story for the first time on Wednsday’s Kelly File, interviewing the author of the NRO piece, David French. She said she would be staying on the story, and invited DA John Chisholm to come on her show and defend himself.

Former Army Chaplain: Hostile Environment Targeting Christian Chaplains

A former Army Chaplain, Douglas Lee, said that there are “trends and storm clouds brewing” in the military.   The hostile environment toward Christians, he said, is unique to the Obama administration and he it to the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” He said that there has been “a change and shift – not only in the military – but across American culture.”

He went on to explain “a culture of fear” that a chaplain may say something that crosses a political correct line, citing a particular incident in which a chaplain was “set up” by a counselee and charged with counseling “inappropriate messages” that he said was “theological in nature.”

Yep – sounds a lot like what’s going on all across America, now.

Meanwhile, Army morale is reportedly  low despite PC ‘optimism’ campaign; Pentagon surprised:

Twelve months of data through early 2015 show that 403,564 soldiers, or 52%, scored badly in the area of optimism, agreeing with statements such as “I rarely count on good things happening to me.” Forty-eight percent have little satisfaction in or commitment to their jobs.

Checking in on the Jayvee Team

With so much of the world’s attention in recent weeks being on Iran, ISIS must be feeling a little neglected — because they appear to be acting out even more than usual.

“Hey, we’re an existential threat too,” they seem to be saying as they post pictures of themselves playing soccer with human heads.”

“Hey, we may not have nukes – yet – but we can make pretty nifty cartoons of your president being decapitated.”

“Make no mistake – we’re the meanest kids on the block.”

The Islamic State is demanding a $30 million ransom to release hundreds of Christian hostages. Fox News reports ISIS jihadists are demanding $100,000 for each hostage. “They know we cannot come up with this kind of money so they’re hoping other groups and countries will come up with the money,” Fox quoted an unnamed Assyrian leader. The jihadi army captured 250-300 civilians in attacks on 35 Assyrian villages in the Hasaka province on February 23. Islamic State fighters killed nine Assyrians attempting to defend their homes. So far the Islamist group released 23 hostages who were told to leave the country rather than return to their homes.

No joke – they really are the meanest and most demented kids on the block. They remind me of the evil inbred freaks in the Texas Chainsaw massacre. Only those freaks actually retained an ounce of humanity. They need to be stopped cold by a military willing to unleash overwhelming force on them.

Sadly – that won’t be happening as long as the current pResident is in office.

Nothing To See Here: Capitol Police Chief Who’s Been Stonewalling For Reid, Resigns

dine_170_111214-440x293

Embattled U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim C. Dine has submitted a letter of resignation to the Capitol Police Board, according to RollCall, citing “multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation.”

It is not currently known whether the letter has or will be accepted by the three-member board, made up of the House and Senate sergeants-at-arms and the Architect of the Capitol. Multiple attempts to secure a comment from Dine were unsuccessful.

Dine has been under fire lately for refusing to release the Capitol Police event report of the New Year’s Day incident that resulted in Senator Harry Reid’s egregious facial injuries and cracked ribs.

Via the Las Vegas Badger:

The leadership of the troubled, 1,800 person Capitol Police force is withholding information about the circumstances surrounding Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) gruesome New Year’s Day injuries.

Breitbart News poked holes in Reid’s story that the injuries resulted from a home exercise accident that occurred when the exercise band that he attached to the shower door in his bathroom “broke and spun me around and I crashed into these cabinets and injured my eye,” as he claimed.

Breitbart News has also reported that virtually all of the information concerning the events surrounding the New Year’s Day injury and Reid’s subsequent hospital treatment that day has originated from Reid’s office. It insists the senator’s Capitol Police security detail was with him at his Henderson, Nevada home when the injuries occurred on New Year’s Day and transported him from his home to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson for treatment.

As RollCall notes, Dine has also been under scrutiny for a number of other snafus:

…the handling of a car chase the night of the State of the Union, which ended without an arrest despite the fact that the suspect was driving without a license. Members of Congress also grilled Dine after the October 2013 fatal shooting of Miriam Carey, as well as the decision to call back officers from the September 2013 Navy Yard shooting.

You can read Poweline’s latest theory as to what happened to Reid on New Years Day, here. (It definitely doesn’t involve exercise equipment.)

Mark Steyn: Mr. President #BlackLivesMatter When They’re Christian, too (Video)

Conservative columnist Mark Steyn was on fire Wednesday night on Hannity,  discussing the president’s increasingly obvious hostility toward Christians.

Like most sentient people, Steyn doesn’t think Obama is actually a Christian, and he passionately made the case for Americans to start speaking up and pushing back against the anti-Christian bias that has been a coming from the top in this country.

“If I were at that prayer breakfast, I would have shouted out SHAME!” Steyn declared, referring to the Easter Prayer Breakfast where Obama once again, took the opportunity to insult Christians.

“I think it’s a pretty poor reflection even on the presumably loyal, liberal Democrats in that audience, that no one objected to it. Because it IS time for people to object to it. This is part of a conscious strategy.”

Steyn noted that Obama is no more an expert on Christianity than he is on Islam; “you got the idea from hearing his thing about loving each other that he’d maybe seen a production of Godspell in High School – and that’s about as far as it goes.”

He pointed out that “148 young students in Kenya had just been killed – slaughtered  – their bodies on the floor – by Muslims fanatics who asked the students in that university; ‘are you Christian or are you Muslim’ and they let the Muslims go and they slaughtered the Christians.”

Steyn continued, “this is a guy who is happy to draw general lessons when a black youth gets killed in Ferguson, Missouri. That apparently has wide application for black people all  over America. But 148 black corpses has no general application. Well Mr President, (hashtag)Black Lives Matter when they’re Christian, too.”

He lamented that  the United States under Obama has been turning its back on the biggest story of our time:  “the extinction of some of the oldest Christian communities on the planet at the hands of Islam, remorselessly.” Steyn, addressing the president, said, “you dishonored those Kenyan students in death by not identifying them as Christians as you dishonored those Egyptians only a couple of weeks earlier.”

He told Hannity that he figures that “Christianity is something that he associates with white  imperialism –  and Islam is the exotic other and the victim group.

The fact is on his watch,  the last Christian church in Afghanistan was razed to the ground.

The Christian community in Iraq – an American protectorate  has been exterminated – on America’s watch. And that is something that should be shameful to him.”

Referring to Obama’s Rose Garden speech with Bowe Bergdahl’s parents, he declared, “it’s not a small thing when the leader of a supposedly free people – lies to those people about what’s going on in the world.”

“I don’t think in any sense he is a Christian, Sean. He’s a social justice warrior – who like a lot of people from the cultural left regards religion as the opiate of the rubes – to modify Marx. But I think in Obama’s case, it’s compounded by the fact that he does have this  profound respect for Islam that leads him actually to invert the situation that is going on in the world today so the Christians are the problem – and the Muslims who are beheading the Christians, who are shooting the Christians and cutting the throats of the Christians, are somehow the victim group we should all be concerned about.”

Steyn also commented Dick Cheney’s recent comments on the Hugh Hewitt radio show that Obama wants “to take America down” – a line he says Cheney stole from one of his recent columns.

“America is at best a bystander in the world,” Steyn explained, “and at worst, colluding with some of the most dangerous and brutal, violent forces on the planet. As I said, if he were working for the other side – what would he be doing differently?”

DHS Launches New Program Offering Free Transportation for Children of Central American Immigrants to the US

free-flights-700x357

As the media hypes bright shiny objects like SSM,  and Obama’s “peace in our time” Iran nuke deal, the Regime’s radical immigration policies continue apace.

Our fundamental transformation requires a steady flow of third world immigrants into the nation – and to facilitate the process of entering the United States, illegally, the Obama administration is offering them FREE TRANSPORTATION  “and a special refugee/parole program with “resettlement assistance” and permanent residency.”

Via Judicial Watch:

Under the new initiative the administration has rebranded the official name it originally assigned to the droves of illegal immigrant minors who continue sneaking into the U.S. They’re no longer known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), a term that evidently was offensive and not politically correct enough for the powerful open borders movement. The new arrivals will be officially known as Central American Minors (CAM) and they will be eligible for a special refugee/parole that offers a free one-way flight to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The project is a joint venture between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the State Department.

Specifically, the “program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States,” according to a DHS memo obtained by JW this week. The document goes on to say that the CAM program has started accepting applications from “qualifying parents” to bring their offspring under the age of 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The candidates will then be granted a special refugee parole, which includes many taxpayer-funded perks and benefits. Among them is a free education, food stamps, medical care and living expenses.

During a teleconference this week with officials from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the State Department, an official said that applicants would not be required to express or document a credible fear to qualify under CAM because “we want to make sure this program is open to as many people as possible.”

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton will be on Special Report with Brett Baier Friday night to discuss this report.
