Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) Says Barack Obama has ‘Deliberately Weakened America’ … Calls Hillary Clinton a “Liar”
RUBIO BLAST OBAMA, SAYS HE DELIBERATELY WEAKENED AMERICA …
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and 2016 GOP presidential candidate stated at a speak on Monday on national security at the American Legion in Hooksett, N.H. that Barack Obama has intentionally and deliberately weakened America both home and abroad. No kidding, really? Just curious, what has the establishment GOP done to prevent or stand in the way of Obama’s actions? Obama stated he was going to fundamentally change America, and sadly he has while Republicans in the House and Senate have done nothing. Rubio also called Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton a “liar” on foreign policy. Tell us something we don’t know. She is pretty much a liar in general. Red State opines, Marco Rubio Is More Right Than Donald Trump On Obama’s Foreign Policy. That may be, but he scared the GOP base on immigration.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is accusing President Obama of intentionally weakening America at home and abroad.
“It’s now abundantly clear: Barack Obama has deliberately weakened America,” Rubio said early Monday during a speech on national security at the American Legion in Hooksett, N.H.
“He has made an intentional effort to humble us back to size,” the GOP presidential hopeful said. “As if to say: We no longer need to be so powerful because our power has done more harm than good.”
“Happiest of all have been America’s enemies,” he added. “Because when America steps back, it gives darker forces the space they need to rise. And rise they have.”
He also criticized Obama for ignoring international challenges and eroding safety at home.
“America is in far greater danger today than it was eight years ago,” Rubio said. “Our president thought he could make America like Luxembourg or Switzerland. But he can’t.
“We are the United States of America — the highest-profile, most important, most powerful country in the world. And while we may ignore problems that exist far away, those problems do not ignore us.”
Rubio cited China, Iran, Russia, Syria and North Korea as some of the global hotspots that have deteriorated on Obama’s watch.
He also argued that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is no better on foreign policy, again calling her a “liar.”
GOP Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz Says … I Will Rebuild Our Military, Kill the Terrorists & Never Apologize For America
IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE WITH A PRESIDENT WHO ACTUALLY WANTED TO PROTECT AMERICA AND KILL TERRORISTS?
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and GOP Presidential candidate rolled out a a series of TV ads in Iowa on Saturday, taking aim at the the incompetence and weak handed approach of dealing with terrorism by both Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State under Obama, Democrat front runner for the party nomination, Hillary Clinton.
“Under Presidential Obama and Secretary Clinton, the world is more dangerous and America is less safe
If I’m elected to serve as Commander-in-Chief, we won’t cower in the face of evil. America will lead. We’ll rebuild our military. We’ll kill the terrorists. And every Islamic militant will know, if you wage jihad against us, you’re signing your death warrant. And under no circumstances will I ever apologize for America.”
The ad is particularly timely as law enforcement is investigating Wednesday’s San Bernardino, Calif., shootings as an act of terrorism.
Cruz and rival presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) have recently exchanged national security jabs after Cruz supported a National Security Agency reform bill this year, which is touted by privacy advocates but opposed by some Republicans who believe it will weaken U.S. intelligence activities.
Cruz also debuted a second ad touting an endorsement from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).
Ahead of the Iowa caucuses in February, Cruz ranks third in GOP presidential polls in the Hawkeye State, trailing Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
Rasmussen Reports: Voters Say to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats … Yes, We Are at War with Radical Islam
BARACK OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON AND DEMOCRATS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TERRORISM ISSUE WITH WE THE PEOPLE …
It would appear that “We the People” are fed up with Obama, Clinton and Democrats telling them that they are racists, bigots and Islamophobes when it comes to the war on terror against radical Islam. According to a recent Rasmussen Report poll, 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. This is rather interesting heading into a presidential election in 2016 as Obama and Democrats refuse to use the term “radical Islam” for fear of hurting the feelings of Muslims. But as BPR opines, its not just Republicans voters who feel this way, 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
ISIS and terrorism under Obama isn’t going away any time soon as Barack Obama refuses to take the issue seriously which means that this will be a huge campaign issue in 2016 and the Democrats are not even close to being on the right side of the issue with the American people.
President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other senior Democrats refuse to say America is at war with “radical Islamic terrorism” for fear of insulting all Muslims, but voters beg to disagree.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism. Just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. Sixteen percent (16%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, a view shared by 70% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
A staggering 92% of all voters now regard radical Islamic terrorism as a serious threat to the United States. This includes 73% who say it is a Very Serious one, up 23 points from 50% in October of last year.
Voters are also more reluctant now to agree with Obama that the radical Islamic State group (ISIS) which masterminded the massacres in Paris last weekend is not a reflection of Islam itself. A plurality (46%) still thinks the president is right when he says ISIS does not represent true Islamic beliefs. But that’s down noticeably from 58% who felt that way in February after the president gave a speech equating the atrocities committed by ISIS with past sins of Christianity. Thirty-five percent (35%) now believe ISIS does represent Islamic beliefs. One-in-five voters (19%) are not sure.

CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Asks Barack Obama: “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?” … Listen To Obama’s Defensive Answer
FROM THE FAILURE IN CHIEF, LISTEN TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA MORE DEFENSIVE AND UPSET WITH REPORTERS QUESTIONS THAN WITH ISIS …
How dare the media hold Emperor Barack Obama accountable for his failed policies, who do they think they are? Following Obama’s pathetic ISIS speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey, the King held court and answered questions from the minions. Many have been critical of Obama’s policies is dealing with ISIS, but is is startling that the liberal media is now taking the lead and posing some glaring questions to Obama. CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Barack Obama the question that pretty much all Americans have wanted to ask, “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?”
“Jim, I just spent the last three questions answering that very question, so I don’t know what more you want me to add. I think I’ve described very specifically what our strategy is, and I’ve described very specifically why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested.”
In response to Acosta’s question, Obama reiterated that the U.S. military could retake territory from the Islamic State, but the result would be occupation. An occupation, huh? Is this what this fool really thinks? So we are not going to destroy this festering cancer called ISIS because this liberal coward this it will be an occupation? Obama went on to say, “So we are going to continue to pursue the strategy that has the best chance of working, even though it does not offer the satisfaction, I guess, of a neat headline or an immediate resolution.” OBAMA, WHAT PART DON’T YOU GET THAT YOUR STRATEGY IS FAILING!!!
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta took an unusually blunt approach Monday in questioning President Barack Obama about why the United States has not destroyed the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS.
“A lot of Americans have this frustration that they see the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS,” Acosta said. “I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, but why can’t we take out these bastards?”
Obama, who was speaking in Antalya, Turkey, at the G-20 summit, responded that he had “just spent the last three questions answering that very question.”
Earlier Monday, Obama had defended the U.S. strategy against the Islamic State, which has largely focused on airstrikes, amid calls for deploying a large number of ground troops in response to the Paris terrorist attacks. Obama said a ground invasion would be a “mistake” because it would require using U.S. troops to occupy Iraqi and Syrian cities indefinitely.

Putin & Russia Launches Airstrikes in northern Syria Against ISIS (Update: Looks Like Russia Attacking Rebel Alliance, Not ISIS)
ARE YOU KIDDING … OBAMA FURTHER MAKES THE UNITED STATES A SECOND CLASS WORLD POWER.
According to news reports, Vladimir Putin and the Russians are launching airstrikes in Northern Syria against ISIS. As per accounts the Russians demanded that the US keep their war planes out. Seriously, is Obama going to show his true colors and cower to Putin? Could Barack Obama be any more of a failure? The dude is Jimmy Carter on steroids. Also, how sad is it that Putin has a plan to defeat ISIS and Obama does not.
This is what happens when you have an apologist as a leader and one that you even wonder if he even likes America. And we are not talking about Putin.
What the caption should read from Putin is, I have tanks, helicopters, planes and balls … your move”
Russian warplanes have begun bombarding Syrian opposition targets in the war torn nation’s north, working on behalf of dictator Bashar al Assad, according to a senior military official.
The official said airstrikes targeted fighters in the vicinity of Homs, located roughly 60 miles east of a Russian naval facility in Tartus, and were carried out by a “couple” of Russian bombers. It was not clear if the strikes targeted ISIS, Al Qaeda or other forces opposed to Assad, who Moscow is aiding. According to a Twitter handle belonging to the Syrian government, the Russian strikes were initiated at the request of Assad.
The development came after Pentagon officials brushed aside an official request from Russia to clear air space over northern Syria, where Moscow intends to conduct airstrikes against ISIS on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, according to sources who spoke to Fox News.
The request was made by a Russian three-star general who spoke with U.S. officials at the American embassy in Baghdad, sources said. The general, who was not identified, used the word “please” when delivering the verbal request, known as a “demarche,” according to the written transcript of the exchange.
A U.S. official confirmed that Russian military aircraft conducted airstrikes today in the vicinity of the city of Homs, Syria. The Russians gave the U.S. only an hour’s advance notification that the airstrikes were about to occur through a message conveyed to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, a U.S. official said.
The official did not have details on what types of Russian aircraft conducted the airstrike in the vicinity of Homs or what the Russians were targeting. The Russian Defense Ministry has so far not confirmed any airstrikes in Syria by Russian military aircraft.
However, the U.S. official noted that there is no major ISIS presence in Homs, which is located in western Syria. Over the past three weeks, Russia has moved 32 fighter and bomber aircraft to the airport in Latakia, a city on the Mediterranean. That airport been developed by Russia into a military operations hub, according to U.S. officials.
“There doesn’t seem to be any operational effect on ISIL where they are flying,” said the official, who used the acronym used by the U.S. government to describe ISIS.
Russian jets bomb rebel positions in Syria including rural areas near the north-western town of Jisr al-Shughour, a day after launching air strikes.
Despite reports to the contrary, Russia’s defence ministry is claiming that a new round of air strikes overnight on Thursday did target Isil and “strictly avoiding populated areas”
News agencies reported that the ministry confirmed that Sukhoi-24M and Sukhoi-25 aircraft flew eight sorties. They hit an ammunition depot near Idlib as well as a three-storey Isil command centre near Hama.
It said a pinpoint strike had destroyed a facility located in the north of Homs aimed at rigging cars with explosives for suicide attacks, Reuters writes.
Russian officials vehemently defended the country’s airstrike campaign in Syria Thursday, denying reports of civilian deaths and Western accusations that the country was targeting U.S.-backed rebels instead of the Islamic State.
Gennady Zyuganov, a member of parliament and leader of Russia’s Communist party, called the accusations “total rubbish.”
Vasily Likhachov, from Russia’s lower house of parliament, described the claims as“the latest anti-Russian attack” after “the pendulum of public international opinion had swung back in the direction of Russia,” the Interfax news service reported.
The Russian ambassador to France, Alexander Orlov, said Moscow’s intervention came after a year of airstrikes by the U.S. and its partners had failed to dislodge Islamic State extremists in Syria, the Associated Press reported from Paris.
Orlov said the accusations formed part of a “war of disinformation,” saying Russian officials had warned the U.S. “via confidential channels” of where they planned to strike, the AP reported. U.S. officials say they were only given notice Wednesday.
