Obama Finally Lowers White House Flags to Half Staff 5 Days After 4 US Marines & 1 Navy Sailor Murdered in Terror Attack in Tennessee
IT TOOK LESS THAN 5 HOURS FOR THE OBAMA TO COLOR THE WHITE HOUSE IN RAINBOW COLORS, BUT 5 DAYS TO LOWER THE FLAGS IN HONOR OF THE US MILITARY FALLEN IN CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE.
File this one under, the its about time file. Well America, you voted for a president, not once, but twice, who said he would fundamentally change America. How’s that working out for you? Yesterday, Barack Obama finally ordered the lowering of the American flag to half-staff at the White House and other public buildings. Of course it was only after pressure mounted against him to do so as the president finally ordered the lowering of the flag some 5 days after the terror attack in Chattanooga, TN where 4 US Marines and one Navy sailor was killed. Critics argued that Obama lowered the flag immediately following other mass shootings like Sandy Hook and it was mere hours after the SCOTUS ruled on same sex marriage that Obama had the White House showered in rainbow colors.
President Obama has ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff after mounting criticism over the delay in honoring five armed forces members killed last week by a gunman.
Obama’s proclamation calls for the flags to remain at half-mast through Saturday “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 16.”
“Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the service members killed last week in Chattanooga. We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives,” Obama said in a presidential proclamation released Tuesday.
“We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try to do us harm: We do not give into fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”
Obama announced his decision hours after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol to be flown at half-staff.
Ahead of Obama’s decision, conservatives lined up to pan the president for failing to lower the flag. They noted that various governors around the country have done so and that the White House had lowered its flag after other mass shootings.
It is disgraceful that a Commander in Chief would wait this long to honor fallen military heroes. And only because he was pressured to.
22 Year Old One America News Host Tomi Lahren Tells Obama to “Be A Leader” Following the Death of 4 Marines & One Sailor in Chatanooga, TN
FINAL THOUGHTS FROM LAHREN …
What, you don’t know who Tomi Lahren is? You will after you watch the below VIDEO. The 22 year old has finally said what most Americans have thought and feel. She rips into Obama and the political hacks in Washington, DC and their failed startegy.Talk about being ‘On Pont’ … “‘I’ve had it with this failed strategy – this half-way, half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-Jihadis mentality pushed by this administration. Be a leader!”
“This won’t take long, but it’s important,” she said at the outset of her monologue. “Four United States Marines are now dead. Climate change didn’t kill them. Lack of free community college did not kill them. The income gap, wage inequality — nope, not those things either. Gay marriage? Nope. Oh, white racism? Not that either. So what did? President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will: radical Islam.”

HE SAID WHAT!!!
Barack Obama admitted on Monday at the G7 Conference in Germany that he does not yet have a “complete strategy” to defeat ISIS. WHAT!!! How in the hell could we not have a complete strategy, actually it would appear that Obama does not even have a partial strategy when it comes to taking on the savage terrorists of ISIS. Obama is the worst president this country has ever seen. Obama would not know what leadership was if he tripped over it. It is incomprehensible to imagine that after all this time that Obama has no strategy when it comes to ISIS. I would ask the following question, will the real JV please stand up. If there was ever a question, that would be you Barack Obama. In the end, this man just does not care about fighting terrorism. These comments should frighten the hell out of Americans.
President Obama said Monday the United States does not have a complete plan to train and equip Iraqi forces to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying Baghdad needs to show a greater commitment to building a fighting force.
“We don’t yet have a complete strategy,” Obama told reporters during a news conference at the G-7 summit of leading industrial nations in Germany.
Obama’s comments are a surprising admission nine months into the U.S.-led coalition’s campaign against the terror group.
The strategy to fight ISIS, but Obama certainly had a well thought out strategy and plan to lie to the American people to pass Obamacare, didn’t he?
WINNING!!! YOU KNOW ITS BAD WHEN CHARLIE SHEEN CRITICIZES BARACK OBAMA ..
You know Barack Obama is a total political screw-up and joke f a president when Charlie Sheen become the voice of reason. Charlie Sheen sent this tweet on Thursday asking why Obama didn’t attend a funeral for soldiers but he could fill out a bracket. The tweet was in Ebonics of which as predictable as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, Sheen was called a racist. The economy still stinks in the US, record number of people are on food stamps, record number of Americans have left the work force, the Middle East is on fire, ISIS is growing and attacking innocents everywhere, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq are falling to terrorists … but Barack Obama has the time for bracketology.
Although, if it meant the difference between Barack Obama spending time on this terrible and foolish nuclear deal with Iran and the NCAA College Basketball brackets, I say let Obama pick as many brackets as he can until he gets it right.
Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?
Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.
The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.
Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy
The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.
“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.
“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”
He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.
So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.
The JV Presidency.
Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?
Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.
White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

Barack Obama in Interview on ‘The Herd’ …”I Spend Most of My Time Watching ESPN in the Morning” (VIDEO)
COULD BARACK OBAMA REMOTELY TAKE HIS JOB AS PRESIDENT SERIOUS?
Nothing more need be said than Barack Obama’s own words to describe his presidency, “I Spend Most of My Time Watching ESPN in the Morning.” And when he is not doing that, Obama is golfing. It has been previously reported that he certainly was not attending daily Intelligence meetings, I guess he was too busy watching Sports Center, DaDaDa, DaDaDa! The United States has a record number of people on Food Stamps, unemployed and underemployed and this clown is watching Sports Center. I guess we now know what Obama was doing during Benghazi.
Why doesn’t Obama do the country a favor and quit the presidency and become an anchor on ESPN, please!
President Barack Obama was a guest on ESPN’s “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd this morning. Obama started with a plug for the Obamacare website and how it’s working these days, but he went to on to discuss sports, his viewing habits and not wanting to hear political talk on TV.
“I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning. I get so much politics; I don’t, you know, want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day,” President Obama told ESPN radio.
Barack Obama Blames Intel Officials for ISIS … “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”
Barack Obama … The Buck always Stop with somebody else other than me …
It did not take long in last nights CBS ’60 Minutes’ interview for President Barack Obama to blame some one else for his not having a strategy or a clue in how to deal with ISIS. Barack Obama threw Intel officials and James Clapper under the bus and stated they underestimated ISIS. Who underestimated ISIS, or did you just not want to see what they were doing? I could not have said it any better than Instapundit, When things go well, it’s always “I, me, mine” with this guy. When things go badly, it’s always “they” who screwed up.
But wait a minute, didn’t FOX News report Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS?
President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News.
The official — who asked not to be identified because the President’s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president — said the data was strong and “granular” in detail.
The Hill: Obama – Intel officials underestimated ISIS.
President Obama largely blamed the United States’ intelligence community in an interview broadcast Sunday for giving an incorrect assessment of the capabilities of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama said on CBS’s “”60 Minutes.”
Obama said ISIS, also known as ISIL, went “underground” when United States forces fought al Qaeda in Iraq in the last decade.
That, along with Syria’s civil war, allowed ISIS to regroup and recruit fighters from all over the world, including Europe, the United States, Australia and the Muslim world, Obama said in an excerpt from the interview. The full interview with Steve Kroft will air Sunday night.
“And so this became ground zero for jihadists around the world,” Obama said of Syria.
Jim Geraghty at NRO says, oh contaire … “How Many Times Was Obama Warned About an Islamist Takeover of Iraq?”
Isn’t this what all of those allegedly horrific warmongering Bush administration officials warned about? Didn’t we have an entire 2008 presidential campaign debating the consequences of a “precipitous withdrawal”? Didn’t Obama and his team assure us, over and over again, that they would manage the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq responsibly?
Vice President Cheney, November 21, 2005:
Would the United States and other free nations be better or worse off with terrorists like Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi running Iraq? And would the United States be more or less safe with Iraq ruled by extremists intent on its destruction?
A precipitous withdrawal from Iraq would be a victory for the terrorists, an invitation to further the violence against free nations and a terrible blow to the future security of the United States of America.
President Bush, July 12, 2007:
I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.
Even The Daily Beast is calling Obama on his comments … Why Obama Can’t Say His Spies Underestimated ISIS.
Still, other senior intelligence officials have been warning about ISIS for months. In prepared testimony before the annual House and Senate intelligence committees’ threat hearings in January and February, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the recently departed director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said the group would likely make a grab for land before the end of the year. ISIS “probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014.” Of course, the prediction wasn’t exactly hard to make. By then, Flynn noted, ISIS had taken the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, and the demonstrated an “ability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria.”
Flynn was not alone. Clapper himself in that hearing warned that the three most effective jihadist groups in Syria—one of which he said was ISIS—presented a threat as a magnet for attracting foreign fighters. John Brennan, Obama’s CIA director, said he thought both ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, al Qaeda’s formal franchise in Syria, presented a threat to launch external operations against the West.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said February 4 that because of areas of Syria that are “beyond the regime’s control or that of the moderate opposition,” a “major concern” was “the establishment of a safe haven, and the real prospect that Syria could become a launching point or way station for terrorists seeking to attack the United States or other nations.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro: Mr. President, Why are You so Afraid of Words … Arab Nations Know Obama Is Not A True Ally
Judge Jeanine Pirro rips the Ditherer in Chief, Barack Obama as only she can …
So why no use of the word war and by not using the word war to avoid a war vote in an election year? Is Obama politicizing the “counter-terrorism” efforts against ISIS. No, never. And we wonder why Americans support a strategy to rid the world of ISIS, but have no confidence in Obama to do it.
NBC/WSJ Poll: Large Majority of Americans Support Barack Obama Mission to Destroy ISIS, But Have No Confidence That He Can Do So
THIS IS WHY YOU NEVER ELECT, LET ALONE REELECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO BE PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF … A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE.
It is a sad state of affairs in the White House these days and the people have lost confidence in President Barack Obama. In the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, although 62% of voters say that they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, however, even more, 68%, say they have little to some confidence that he can reach his goals of degrading and eliminating ISIS. Sadly, that seems to be Obama’s own opinion as well with his mixed messages and a plan that counts on premises that he was against just months ago.
It is hard to win a war on terror when you cannot even bring yourself to say it.
Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants.
Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines.
The poll – conducted before the latest execution emerged – showed that a combined 68 percent of Americans say they have “very little” or “just some” confidence that Obama’s goals of degrading and eliminating the threat posed by ISIS will be achieved. Just 28 percent said they had “a great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence. Still, 62 percent of voters say they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, while 22 percent oppose it.
The NBC/WSJ poll also shows that just 38% of voters approve of Obama’s job in handling foreign policy.Which is actually higher than the most recent FOX News poll that has Obama’s approval rating in dealing with foreign police at 34% approve and 59% disapprove.

HEY MR. PRESIDENT … YOU DO REALIZE THAT THE “I” IN ISIS OR ISIL AS YOU LIKE TO SAY STANDS FOR “ISLAM,” RIGHT?
Barack Obama, the Apologist in Chief was at it again last night with his “tin-horn” speech on the ISIS threat. Obama was finally able to muster up the “cojones” to call ISIS a terrorist group, but he just could not find it in himself to say they were Islamic. UNREAL. So ISIS is not Islamic because Obama says so and because they kill Muslims? HUH? Mr. President, you might want to read the Quran and that religion of Peace.
“ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the murder of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”
