CPAC 2015: Dr. Sebastian Gorka: ‘ISIS is a Proto-State’

Dr. Sebastian Gorka, a counterinsurgency and counterterrorism expert who teaches at the National Defense University, spoke convincingly on the threats posed by the Islamic State at a CPAC panel, Friday called, “Lowering the Boom, When to Stand Up To Rogue Nations. Also on the panel, were Andy McCArthy, former Asst. US Attorney, Peter Brookes, the Heritage Foundation, and Gary Johnson, the libertarian former governor of NM who was on hand to offer his counter points.

“ISIS now holds territory in excess of the landmass of Great Britain. That means, it is not just a terrorist group with training camps,” Gorka explained. “It is a proto-state.”

He continued that ISIS is the “richest threat group in modern history” after robbing the Iraqi national bank twice and getting away with $823 million dollars.

Dr. Gorka noted that according to the 9/11 report,  the entire cost of that terror event cost al Qaeda $500,000.

“That means ISIS has enough money from those two raids for 1,600 9/11s should it wish to turn its guns against us,” he warned. “And that is without the $3 million dollars it makes per day in illicit oil sales.”

Gorka said, ISIS is the most successful Jihadist terrorist group in terms of recruitment.

“The recruitment power of ISIS is staggering. They have recruited 14,000 foreign fighters,” he said pointing out that by foreign he means, “Brits, Australians, Americans and Germans.”

Gorka said ISIS understands social media in a way that al Qaeda never did, and recommended that every tax payer and every lover of Democracy watch their videos in their entirety.

“When you see another human being take seven minutes to sever another man’s head because he was a Christian, then you’ll understand the nature of the war we are in.”

There have been over a million  Christians killed our hounded out of Iraq since 2003 when there were one million, 400 thousand Christians in Iraq. There are now less than 200,000 left. “That is a genocide against Christians on our watch,” he said.

He went on to note that we are at war with a global jihadist movement that will take generations to win. And it won’t be won without US involvement.

“Isolation and non intervention will not stop a 9/11 ISIS attack,” Gorka concluded.

Ralph Peters Calls Obama ‘The Reincarnation of Pontius Pilate Washing His Hands’ As ISIS Slaughters Christians (Video)

On Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, Wednesday morning, Lt. Col Ralph Peters (Ret.) used biblical terms to describe the president’s wanton disregard for the ongoing slaughter of Christians that is ongoing in the Middle East.  Describing the bloodletting as a holocaust, in which our president is doing nothing, Peters called Obama a reincarnation of Pontius Pilate washing his hands, but he said this blood is not coming off.

Host Bill Hemmer wondered if ISIS was bent on genocide, “or is it land they want.”

“They certainly would like land,” Peters replied. “But the immediate target are Christians, Jews, Yazidis, other minorities – but especially Christians because Christian civilization in that region predates Islam. It’s been there for 2,000 years. Bill the first 1000 years of Christianity, in the greater Middle East and North Africa – those were the cities where the saints – the theologians – there were far more Christians in the Middle East back then, than there were in Europe.”

He continued, “but what we are seeing now is an Islamist attempt to exterminate the last vestiges of Christian civilization in the Middle East. After the holocaust of World War II the world said never again. But Bill O’Reilly is right, it’s happening again. It is a genuine holocaust against Christians.

These Christians are kidnapped. Our president does nothing.

Christians are tortured and even crucified publicly. Our president does nothing.

The Christian women are kidnapped and raped and raped again. Our president does nothing.

Christians are driven from their homes in the Middle East but the hundreds of thousands, slaughtered by the tens of thousands, and our president does nothing!

He is the reincarnation of Pontius Pilate washing his hands, but this blood is not coming off.”

(You can bet this one has Medea Mutters in an uproar.)

Peters went on to say that the so-called coalition is a total lie. And the idea that ISIS is going to listen to the State Dept’s “demands” to let the captives free, he found ludicrous.

“Do you really think ISIS pays much attention to Jen Psaki?” he sneered. “You’ve got to act!”

Horror: Approx 100 Christians Captured By ISIS in Syria (Video)

mideast-islamic-state

ISIS (Daesh) hasn’t even released the murder/torture porn video from their last atrocity – the burning of 45 Iraqis  in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, which is just a stones throw from Ain al-Asad air base, where 300 American Marines are stationed.

Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the security forces.

Almost certainly among them are the 15 captured Kurds they paraded around in cages – as seen here. Daesh will be releasing their video in all its horrific glory any day now.

Now, amid claims from the Sec. of State that the US is “on the road” to defeating ISIS, comes this ghastly news via the IB Times: 

Islamic State (Isis) militants have kidnapped between 70 and 100 Christians of the Assyrian minority in the north-eastern Syrian province of al-Hasakah, according to a monitoring group and an advocacy organisation.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which relies on a local network of activists, cited “reliable sources” as saying that the jihadists abducted dozens of Syrians in the village of Tal Shamiram, in the Tal Tamer area.

The sources said that IS members confirmed via wireless devices that they had detained “90 crusaders”. Others reported that dozens of Assyrian people were kidnapped from the nearby village of Tal Hermez.

Horror.

It’s worth noting that our  patriotic and profoundly Christian president recently cited “the Crusades” as an example of Christian atrocities against innocent Muslims. To ISIS/Daesh, violence toward “Christian Crusaders” is justified and part of a 800 year grudge match. It would seem our president has some sympathy for that point of view.

Ace makes a great point on Twitter:

“IS attacked the Syrian villages at 5am and displaced 3,000 people,” Kino said. “That has been confirmed to us by different sources: refugees and fighters got in touch with relatives in Sweden, Germany and Canada.”

He said that 70 to 100 people, mainly women and children, have been abducted in the attack and the men were taken to the Abd al-Aziz mountains.

Another activist, Aryo Edward, president of the Sweden-based Assyrian rights group, told IBTimes UK that at least 500 families escaped the IS attack and fled to Qamishli and Hasakah city, where they found refuge in a church.

Al Sisi and Haftar Fight ISIS in Libya With No Help From US – While Obama Meets With Muslim Brotherhood

Without any help from the United States, Egypt and Libya are making some progress rooting the ISIS/Daesh terrorists out of Libya’s borders.

According to the *ISIS Study group, Egyptian Special Forces executed a joint-raid with the forces of Libyan GEN Khalifah Haftar after the start of airstrikes against Islamic State (IS) positions inside Libya.

Unit 999 and GEN Haftar’s forces conducted a raid on a camp located in the Dernah-area (variant: Darna) resulting in the total destruction of the camp. This particular camp is said to have a heavy-foreign fighter presence consisting of Tunisian, Egyptian and Algerian fighters. This particular camp appears to be part of the facilitation ratlines sending weapons and fighters to Syria through Egypt and Gaza, which is probably why the Sisi regime chose to target this location. IS responded by targeting the GEN Haftar stronghold of Quba in a series of bombings.

The ratlines coming out of Libya are also fueling IS-affiliate Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis (ABM) to continue moving forward in their campaign to secure the Sinai Peninsula to use as the gateway to Gaza, Jordan and Syria. If you suspect there’s a great sense of urgency on the part of Egypt to eradicate the IS presence in Libya and the Sinai, you would be correct. The reason for the increased operations in both areas has everything to do with ABM attempting to reach out to other jihadist groups in the country to bolster their ranks and create a “unified” command. Unconfirmed reporting has come out over the past few weeks about ABM allegedly reaching out to the Cairo-based group Ajnad Masr for the purpose of conducting joint-operations against the regime. This is significant since Ajnad Masr splintered from ABM in 2013 over their pro-IS leanings and regional agenda as opposed to just targeting the Egyptian government. If confirmed, then ABM will have an effective action-arm for conducting operations inside Cairo itself (ABM’s Cairo operations had been disrupted over the last 4 months due to security sweeps). Adding weight to this possibility are the reports that Ajnad Masr may be looking to target western embassies in the capital.

Meanwhile, instead of helping our allies, the president has infuriated them – receiving at the White House,  the very group that spawned Hamas, al Qaeda, and the enemy they are currently fighting.

The governments of Egypt and Saudi Arabia have expressed outrage over the warm visit Muslim Brotherhood members allegedly received at the White House in January, which the State Department eventually admitted to only after the Muslim Brotherhood members boasted of their visit on social media.

“The Egyptian regime, outraged by the visit, accused the U.S. administration of not respecting the Egyptian law that defines the MB as a terrorist organization, and of discounting the will of the Egyptian people,” reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

President Sisi himself reacted to the State Department’s belated confirmation of the Muslim Brotherhood meeting by describing the Brotherhood as “the world’s most dangerous secret terrorist organization” and saying it “has clandestine wings and secret ideas and tools… which is why Egyptians rose up against it.” Other comments from Sisi’s government were even more pointed, as translated by MEMRI:

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry expressed outrage at the U.S. State Department’s hosting of the MB delegation. At the end of the African Union summit, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry addressed the State Department’s explanation, saying: “I do not understand [the State Department’s] claims. We do not understand the existence of such ties with elements that are involved in terrorist activists meant to terrify Egyptians.” He added: “The MB movement is not a political party. Egyptian law – which should be respected, just as we respect the laws of others – defines it as a terrorist organization, based on evidence and testimony we have that indicates their involvement in terrorist actions meant to harm the lives of Egyptians, terrorize them, and threaten their security.” Shoukry said further: “If we wanted to bury our heads in the sand so as not to face reality, that would be another matter. But we see very well.” According to him, “terrorism is not just ISIS or Boko Haram, but rather all terrorist groups, regardless of what name they use, since they [all] champion the same ideology and the same ideas leading to death and destruction…”

Via FrontPage Magazine:

The administration’s behavior in this context runs completely counter to the reality illuminated by Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukr. “Ultimately this extremist ideology is shared by all terrorist groups. We detect ties of cooperation between them and see a danger as it crosses borders,” he explained.

Part of that mix includes includes Hamas, also spawned by the MB. Writing for the Times of Israel, Ryan Mauro, National Security Analyst for the Clarion Project, wonders why the world agrees that ISIS is morally repugnant even as Hamas gets a pass. “Both implement sharia governance, deliberately target civilians, have genocidal beliefs and seek the establishment of a caliphate,” he writes. He further explains that ISIS’s determination to exterminate Iraq’s Yazidi population is “no more egregious” than Hamas’s determination to eliminate millions of Jews. And the only difference between the MB, Hamas and ISIS is in regard to their method of achieving the same goal. The MB and Hamas wish to establish a Muslim caliphate incrementally, while ISIS is willing to do anything and everything to bring one about as quickly as possible.

Walid Shoebat, (a former PLO terrorist) has a theory. And as outlandish as it seems, it’s worth hearing out because Obama’s actions vis a vis the war on terror is becoming increasing alarming and difficult to comprehend.

Shoebat asks, “why is Obama, like Erdogan, aiding only Syrian rebels while both policies of Turkey and the U.S. exclude training the Kurds?”

It was at the Battle of Marj Dābiq (Arabic: مرج دابق‎) as we all learned as children was the most decisive military clash in Middle Eastern history (1516 AD) near the town of Dabiq, 44 km north of Aleppo, Syria between the Ottoman Empire and the Mamluk Sultanate.

The mention of Dabiq to ISIS and Turkey reveals more than just history, but also eschatology of invading Egypt for a grand future victory for Erdogan’s ultimate dream to revive the sick man of Europe. Dabiq is reverting back the clock to when Sultan Selim I (King of the North) of the Ottomans had just pushed back and vanquished the Safavid Persians (The biblical Bear) at the Battle of Chaldiran in 1514—and turned their full might against the Mamluks, who ruled in Syria and Egypt (The biblical kingdom of the south) to complete the Ottoman conquest of the Middle East and mark their Ottoman supremacy in history.

Can anyone deny that Erdogan and Obama are setting policies in their nations that is preparing all this by  reversing Sykes Picot in supporting the Arab Spring which is crippling nationalism and advancing the caliphate agenda? No Middle East analyst can deny that the United States through Obama was the key player which advanced the demolision of  nationalism and advanced a caliphate agenda throughout the entire Middle East.

It is these two, Syria and Egypt, that are necessary keys to complete the mission of an Ottoman conquest of the Middle East as to repeat the glory days of Selim I. Everything in both of Obama’s and Erdogan’s policies prove it. Just this week, Obama’s aides declined to back Egypt’s military operation against ISIS and instead Obama continues to work with Erdogan, his true partner, in training the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood of Syria.

Why would the United States throw away one of its closest Arab allies in the Middle East? This should no longer be a mystery which even White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki could not adequately answer.

Is it now becoming obvious that Obama’s policies will allow a caliphate control over Libya which will turn that entire region of North Africa into the next Somalia recreating even another Barbary Pirates which will  move even further to the gates of Vienna to threaten Christendom?

This interview Shoebat did with radio host Michael Savage a year ago about Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood/Sudan Regime-connected half brother Malik Obama, is quite an eye opener.

Savage’s final question is one conservatives have been asking a lot, lately. “Where are the Republicans?”

Muslim Man Fakes the Hate: Arrested for Bomb Threats Against Austin TX Muslim Center (Video)

635600352447160858-Baytie-2c-Azzam-2-1-61--488x650

This must have totally blindsided DHS. Because the biggest terror threat in the country is supposed to be this “right-wing” Sovereign Citizen Movement. No doubt they were on the lookout for Gadsden flag waving, bible-quoting “patriots.”  But no….

Via KVUE:

A Muslim man in Austin, TX is being accused of faking a hate crime against the Muslim Community Center where he was staying.

According to the Austin Police Department, 54-year-old Azzam Ahmed Baytie made two bomb threats at a North Austin Muslim Community Center and a Middle Eastern-style food truck near the Arab Cowboy Cafe and Hookah Lounge. The community center is in North Austin, and the cafe is located in West Campus.

Staff at the community center called Austin-Travis County EMS just after 7 a.m. Tuesday. They said the man had some kind of medical issue, possibly psychiatric problems.

He is being charged with terroristic threat, a third-degree felony.

This wasn’t the first time Baytie had tried something like this. He was found guilty of making “a terroristic threat and criminal trespassing after a 2008 incident at the same mosque at the North Austin Muslim Community Center.”

Baytie reportedly told police he had a bomb in his backpack. Authorities scanned the backpack with an X-ray machine and found electronic parts inside, prompting them to destroy the backpack as a precaution.

You know what? I think Baytie might benefit from Marie Harf’s Jobs for Jihadis program. Someone should get that guy an application.

Concern Grows That ISIS Could Slip into US Amid Surge of Syrian refugees (Video)

According to the Counter Jihad Report, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations between 2010 and 2013— dwarfing the number the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico over that period.

The State Department is offering thousands more refugees from war-torn Syria and Libya safe haven in the United States.

Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period.

This is a sea change in immigration flows, and it threatens national security.

Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there.

Now the State Department says it will quadruple the number of refugees brought here from Syria, where IS is headquartered.

The U.S. will admit as many as 2,000 Syrian nationals by the end of fiscal year 2015, up from 525 since fiscal 2011.

Yes, the number of displaced people inside war-torn Syria and Iraq, an estimated 3 million refugees, rivals the most in Mideast history. But rolling out the welcome mat for them in the middle of a mushrooming war on Muslim terrorism is dangerously shortsighted.

“Why are we rolling out the welcome mat for them?” the American Spectator’s Ben Stein asked on the Neil Cavuto Show. “It makes no sense at all. It’s the perfect State Dept. idiocy. ”

Rep. Mike McCaul was on Hannity, last week to talk about radical Islam spreading to American soil through the influx Syrian refugees.

Mark Steyn: O Beautiful, For Specious Guys…

The US media have had a fit of the vapors over Rudy Giuliani’s suggestion that Barack Obama does not love America. As the Instapundit says, their reaction suggests that Giuliani hit a nerve.

For my own part, I am way beyond that. By the way, I’m growing rather weary of the cheap comparisons of Obama with Neville Chamberlain. The British Prime Minister got the biggest issue of the day wrong. But no one ever doubted that he loved his country. That’s why, after his eviction from Downing Street, Churchill kept him on in his ministry as Lord President of the Council, and indeed made Chamberlain part of the five-man war cabinet and had him chair it during his frequent absences. When he died of cancer in October 1940, Churchill wept over his coffin.

So please don’t insult Neville Chamberlain by comparing him to Obama. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, because conspiracies are generally a comforting illusion: the real problem with Obama is that the citizens of the global superpower twice elected him to office. Yet one way to look at the current “leader of the free world” is this: If he were working for the other side, what exactly would he be doing differently?

This is a must-read piece. The last paragraph says it all.

Then there’s this:

Walid Shoebat at The Right Scoop EXPOSES how Obama’s policies are part of MASTER PLAN to revive GRAND CALIPHATE

And why is Obama, like Erdogan, aiding only Syrian rebels while both policies of Turkey and the U.S. exclude training the Kurds?

It was at the Battle of Marj Dābiq (Arabic: مرج دابق‎) as we all learned as children was the most decisive military clash in Middle Eastern history (1516 AD) near the town of Dabiq, 44 km north of Aleppo, Syria between the Ottoman Empire and the Mamluk Sultanate.

And can anyone deny that both Erdogan and Obama when speaking on Islam their words never go against the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda?

Erdogan also despises Israel.

Rudy Doubles Down: Refuses To Apologize For Anti-Obama Comment, Repeats It

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was feisty on “The Kelly File” Thursday night,  doubling down on his comment that Barack Obama does not love America.

Via Fox News:

Megyn Kelly asked Giuliani: Do you want to apologize for your comment?

“Not at all, I want to repeat it,” he said, charging Obama with apologizing for America and criticizing the country.

Kelly pressed Giuliani, noting that Obama could view foreign policy through a Democratic lens. “But to condemn his patriotism, to question his love of America?” she asked.

“I don’t hear from him what I heard from Harry Truman, what I heard from Bill Clinton, what I heard from Jimmy Carter, which is these wonderful words about what a great country we are, what an exceptional country we are,” Giuliani said.

He stressed, “I’m right about this. I have no doubt about it. I do not withdraw my words.”

Giuliani went on to make the case in even stronger terms than he did before, evoking Obama’s Commie grandparents, Frank Marshall Davis, and Obama’s 17 year stint in Rev. Jeremiah (G*d Damn America) Wright’s church. (It really seems like Giuliani’s been researching Obama’s background – especially the disturbing early years.)

“Now, if you were in that church, wouldn’t you quit that church?” Giuliani asked Megyn – who was either in major devil’s advocate mode, or being pretentiously PC. “Would you have quit that church?” he persisted.

“Well, it’s not about me,” Megyn dodged.

“But I know you would quit that church,” Rudy declared. “And the reason you would is because of the way you were brought up – about how exceptional this country is… how wonderful this country is…”

In an attempt to prove Rudy’s hypocrisy, Megyn showed an old video of him on Hannity railing against the infamous MoveOn “General Betray-Us” ad which Giuliani found appalling and uncivil at the time.

“I ask you the same thing,” Megyn said, “what kind of civility was that?” – referring to Rudy’s comments about Obama.

“I think that was perfectly civil,” Giuliani insisted. “I think it’s a reasonable opinion…”

(It’s not only a ‘reasonable” opinion – it’s a necessary opinion. For six years now, this president has been hellbent on knocking the country down a peg. It’s time he was knocked down a peg.)

“I do not withdraw my words,” Giuliani concluded.
