Putin & Russia Launches Airstrikes in northern Syria Against ISIS (Update: Looks Like Russia Attacking Rebel Alliance, Not ISIS)


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.

ABC News: US Confirms Russian Airstrikes in Syria.

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.

UPDATE I: Russia ‘launches air strikes again’, targeting rebel alliance in Syria.

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.

UPDATE II: Russia vehemently defends Syrian airstrikes and denies targeting U.S. -backed rebels.

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.

Taliban Recapture Northern city of Kunduz in Afghanistan


The Taliban has recaptured the northern city of Kunduz in Afghanistan. As CNN reports, the loss of the major city of Kunduz to the Taliban is a stunning reversal for the Afghan government, deepening worries about the ability of its security forces to take the fight to the Islamic militants. This is the first time a Taliban has taken a city in Afghanistan since 2001. You can thank Barack Hussein Obama for leaving the Afghans in the lurch and creating the vacuum where all gains by the US military under GWB have all but been lost under Obama. This is a major, major loss. What a colossal failure, or is this what Obama wanted all along?

FOX News:

Taliban insurgents launched a massive assault on the northern city of Kunduz Monday, seizing a courthouse, a hospital and other government buildings, and freeing hundreds of inmates from a prison, despite a series of battles with government forces.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told The Associated Press that “Kunduz city has collapsed into the hands of the Taliban.”

“Security forces in Kunduz were prepared for an attack, but not one of this size, and not one that was coordinated in 10 different locations at the same time,” Sediqqi said.

“With capturing of police compound and governor’s office in Kunduz, the whole province fell to our hands,” the Taliban’s spokesman said Monday on his Twitter account.

The Taliban used social media to claim the “conquest” of Kunduz and reassure residents that the extremist group — responsible for the vast majority of nearly 5,000 civilian casualties in the first half of this year, according to the United Nations — came in peace.

Hillary Clinton Praises Barack Obama’s US-Iran Nuclear Deal as Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei Says Israel Will Not Be Alive in 25 Years

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei proclaims Israel will not exist in 25 years …

On the very day that Hillary Clinton made a public speech and embraced Barack Obama’s Iranian nuclear deal, the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei proclaimed that Israel will not be in existence in 25 years.  Khamenei further went on to say, “God willing there will be nothing left of the Zionist regime in 25 years. Meanwhile, the heroic jihadi Islamic spirit will not leave the Zionists in peace for a second.”

Well thanks to Barack Obama and the anti-Semite Democrats, the Ayatollah’s wish just may become a reality. Honestly, who is the hell in their right mind would support a treaty that would allow Iran access to nukes and in some cases of this hideous agreement, actually have Iran self-inspect themselves. ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! Sorry folks, but this is the last straw with this president and Democrats who put party ahead of country and the world. You have to be a sick and ignorant SOB to actually believe that Iran could be trusted to do anything that they saw. There is no trust and verify with the fanatical Islamic leaders of Iran, they should not even be dealt with to even verify anything with. As for the Democrat politicians who are Jews, like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her ilk, that actually support this terrible treaty, I guess you would have lead your own people into Hitler’s gas chambers as well.

Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei kill israel

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described Israel as a “fake” regime, and said there won’t be any Israel in 25 years from now.

“Some of the Zionists have said that given the results of the nuclear negotiations (between Tehran and the world powers), they have been relieved of concerns about Iran for 25 years, but we tell them that basically, you will not see the next 25 years and with God’s grace, nothing under the name of the Zionist regime will exist in the region by then,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranians in Tehran on Wednesday.

He added that the heroic spirit and morale of Muslim fighters will not let the Zionists feel comfort and tranquility in the next 25 years.

Elsewhere, Ayatollah Khamenei warned of the US endless enmity towards the Iranian nation, and said even after the nuclear agreement, whose fate is not yet clear in Iran and the US, the Americans have been hatching plots and approving a bill in the congress against Iran.

He described national might as the only way to end the US plots, and said a strong economy, growing scientific progress and maintaining and reinvigorating the revolutionary spirit and morale of the people, specially the youth, are among ways to boost national might and power.

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated the need for vigilance against the US plots to influence Iran, and said Tehran had only entered negotiations with Washington just on the nuclear issue “and we will not negotiate with the US in other fields”.

Obama_Hillary Clinton

Yeah Hillary, wait until these saps see my Iranian nuclear deal after they foolishly elect me for a second term

This is a regime that wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth and the United States. And with Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, this delusional, poor excuse for a president is about to unfreeze $100 billion back to an Islamist regime, a state sponsor of terrorism to do whatever they want with this money.

In essence, the second worst president in history, Jimmy Carter, created the Islamic terrorist state of Iran and now the worst president in American history, Barack Obama, is giving Iran the means to put forth their means of extermination. UNREAL.

Sheriff David Clarke Blasts Barack Obama For Starting The War On Police Following the Assasination of Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth


Political correctness does not exist in vocabulary of Sheriff David Clarke. Watch the video below from this weekends Justice with Judge Jeanine. Sheriff Clarke says it as it is and points the blame directly at the doorstep of Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder for the ‘War on Police’ climate in America. It is a powerful and important interview to watch. Why is Sheriff Clarke 100% correct? One only needs to hear the deafening silence from the White House regarding this heinous killing of a white police officer at the hand of a black punk.

Enough is enough Obama, act like a president or just admit you are a community agitator looking to cause a race war.

How Presidential, Anyone Who Disagrees With Barack Obama is Called “Crazies” … Update: White House Walks back Obama’s ‘crazies’ comment


The Divider in Chief is at it again calling referring to those who do not agree with his Iran nuclear deal as “crazies”.  How presidential. But what can we expect from the worst president in modern times. So I guess the Democrats like soon to be Senate minority leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) is one of those crazies? How sad that this is what it has come to with this poor excuse for a president. A note to Barack Obama, you know what crazy is … making a deal with a fanatical Islamist regime like that exists in Iran, giving away the kitchen sink in the process and providing no real way to monitor their nuclear capabilities and in some cases making secret provisions for Iran to monitor themselves. What is crazy is to actually trust Iran, a government hellbent on destroying Israel and the United States.

There are the people on his side on the Iran deal, President Barack Obama said Monday evening. Then there are “the crazies.”

Back from a notably uneventful and restful two-week vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Obama was immediately on the road for a short trip here, first to speak at a green energy conference hosted by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, then to raise money for his preferred successor, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

White House walks back Obama’s ‘crazies’ comment

The White House on Tuesday walked back on President Obama’s comments during a Nevada fundraiser Monday night when he referred to some of his political opponents in Congress as “crazies.”

In his comments at the fundraiser, president acknowledged that he was back from vacation feeling “refreshed, renewed, recharged” and “a little feisty.”

On the feisty score, he didn’t waste time saying he was ready for the fall’s legislative battles, noting that he had ridden to the fundraiser with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. The two, he said, did some reminiscing and spent time “figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.”

Some reporters and critics immediately interpreted the “crazies” comment as referring to those opposing the Iran nuclear deal. The White House Tuesday denied that it was a reference to Iran deal opponents but admitted the president was “flip” with his language.

Donald Trump Instagram VIDEO Rips Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton … “Politicians are Having Fun on Your Dime While the World is Buring”


Yesterday Donald Trump released a 15 second Instagram video that was both hard hitting and remarkable in many ways. First, in the age of new social media, this video that cost literally nothing to make and produce and reached many views as other campaigns spend thousands on highly produced TV ads. Second, Trump blistered both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as having fun and a grand old time juxtaposed to images of ISIS’s Jihadi John cutting innocent individuals heads off and the Consulate burning in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Stevens.

The message, “politicians are having fun on your dime as the world burns”. This is so powerful and effective because that is exactly what many Americans believe, but have no platform to say it. Enter Donald Trump and his brash, over the top, take no prisons style. But the GOP establishment is worried about his tone. Most Americans say, screw the tone, we want results and we want politicians working for We the People, not taking advantage of the perks of their political office. Why does it seem that Barack Obama has played more golf since he has been president than Tiger Woods, Babba Watson and Jordan Spieth? Believe it or not it has been 219 times after he has continuously claimed he will not rest until every willing and and able American can find a job, not one single veteran falls into homelessness and until we build an economy that is ready for America’s future. How’s that working out for America? And of course with Hillary Clinton, what difference does anything make.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer Opposes Obama Iran Nuclear Deal & Faces the Obama Wrath

So is Barack Obama and his minions going to compare Chucky Schumer to hardline Iranians?

The top U.S. Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer  has come out and said that he opposes Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. The next in line to become the Democrat Senate Minority leader has gone against the Obama White House and actually done the right thing. Schumer has put America first and Obama second. Its is about time the Democrat party or at least a high ranking Democrat has done so. Also, Representative Eliot L. Engel of New York, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has also opposed the deal. on Friday, Congress, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), said on Friday that he would follow suit and vote against Obama’s naive nuke deal.

Chuck Schumer stated that he will not approve the Iran nuclear dead because “he believes that Iran will not change … “. There is ver little that I agree with Schumer; however, lets give credit where credit is due. However, if this is just a ploy by Schumer, knowing that there are enough liberal, ignorant law makers to approve Obama’s terrible nuke deal for the US, Israel and its Middle East allies, then shame on Schumer.

Will Obama treat Democrats who dare oppose him like the GOP?

Senator Chuck Schumer, the most influential Jewish voice in Congress, said Thursday night that he would oppose President Obama’s deal to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Mr. Schumer, Democrat of New York, said in a lengthy statement. “This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”

Mr. Schumer had spent the last several weeks carrying a dog-eared copy of the agreement in his briefcase and meeting with Mr. Obama and officials like Wendy R. Sherman, the deal’s chief negotiator. With his decision, he paves the way for other Democrats on the fence to join Republicans in showing their disapproval.

Will Obama’s attacks on Iran deal opponents hurt his cause?

Claiming September’s vote on whether to support the deal carries similar weight to the 2002 decision to invade Iraq, Obama suggested the soundtrack to both historic moments was the “drumbeat of war.”

And he charged that Republicans who have vowed to defeat the agreement were making “common cause” with hardliners in Iran.

MSNBC Cancels 3 Shows That No One Watched … “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show”


As reported at The Politico, LSNBC, BSNBC, MSNBC is pulling the plug on three shows, “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show.” But is anyone going to miss them, no one watched the garbage in the first place.  MSNBC President Phil Griffin says the moves was made to change the uber-liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics channel, at least in daytime. Now that’s funny, reporting straight forward, no liberal spin news. Who are they going to replace these failed shows with Bill O’Reilly?

Coming in September 2015, MSNBC will add a 5 PM program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor. Oh yeah, that will change the liberal slanted, moonbat network programming, adding lying Brian Williams to the mix. PLEASE!!!


MSNBC has formally decided to cancel three programs — “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show” — as part of a larger effort to shift its daytime lineup away from opinion programming, network sources told the On Media blog on Thursday.

Alex Wagner and Ari Melber, a “Cycle” co-host and MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will remain with the network. Ed Schultz, the host of “The Ed Show,” will leave the network, as will “Cycle” co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Krystal Ball and Toure. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced the news in a memo sent shortly after the initial version of this item was published.

The cancellations, which have been expected for some time, come as NBC News chief Andrew Lack moves to refashion the liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics offering, at least in daytime. In September, MSNBC will add a 5 p.m. program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor.

This move by MSNBC asks the age old question, If three TV shows are canceled that now one watched, did they ever exist in the first place?

As the Politicus USA opines, Ed Schultz won’t be the last liberal to be let go, it has been reported for months that Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Chris Hayes are also on the way out. One can dare to dream. As stated earlier, they could all be shown the door and no one would notice. There are private website that get more traffic than MSNBC.

New York Times/CBS News Poll: Nearly 60% of Americans Think Race Relations Are Bad Under Obama

Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?

In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.

As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.

Obama Divider

Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.

A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.

The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.

Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.

Classless … Barack Obama Jokes with Jon Stewart on Daily Show About Iran Nuclear Deal


The Comedian in Chief is at it again … How sad is it that Barack Obama is only comfortable going on a comedy show to discuss life and death matters like arming Iran with nukes? It is pathetic that a president is allowed to go on a non-serious show with such important topics and lie through his teeth about this lousy deal with Iran. To make matters worse, its not like Stewart is going to confront him on his lies, instead Stewart just makes a joke about it because after all, its a comedy show.  How is allowing a radical Islamic, state sponsor of terror country like Iran a laughing matter.

President Barack Obama used a playful environment Tuesday to hit his critics on the Iran nuclear deal.

He said that critics of the deal apparently think, “if you had brought Dick Cheney to the negotiations, everything would be fine,” according to the White House press pool report.

Check out the 6:05 mark of the VIDEO where Jon Stewart may have gotten in the zinger of the night in a not so subtle way as Obama takes a breathe and thinks to himself, its good that he is on my side. Obama says of Iran, “But with respect to Iran, look this is an adversary. They are anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, they sponsor terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. Jon Stewart mockingly replies, “Sounds like a good partner for peace” and then basically laughs in the president’s face. Honestly, that is the Iran nuclear deal in a nutshell. It is no laughing matter that Obama has provided a legal pathway to a nuclear bomb to Iran and yet one just shakes their head as this terrible, terrible and dangerous deal.
