Attorney General Eric Holder Blames Fox News For Talking About ‘Radical Islam’ (VIDEO) … Watch Reaction
Hasn’t this Fox News obsessed hater left office yet?
From The Daily Caller comes the following … At the National Press Club on Tuesday, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder mocked Fox News for having the audacity of talking to much about the Obama administration’s refusal to use the term “radical Islam.” WOW, how dare they. Because you know Eric, if they didn’t report on it, we all know that the bias, left-wing liberal Democrat media complex would not. This is yet another example of just how small, petty and thin-skinned the Barack Obama White House is. Seriously, the media’s job is to question government. To single out a news media outlet like that is just so low rent. Holder said, we spend more time on what do you call it. Hmm, isn’t this the same person who calls out the Tea Party by name and calls police officers racists?
Huh, 21 Coptic Christians beheaded, a Muslim Jordain pilot burned alive in a cage, terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen and the Obama administration refuses to use the term “radical Islam.” Instead they attack Fox News for actually doing their job. Why does it appear that the Obama administration talks tougher to Fox News than ISIS?
HOLDER: Whenever you’re getting criticized by both sides, it probably means you’re probably getting right. We spend more time, more time talking about what you call it, as opposed to what do you do about it, you know? I mean really. If Fox didn’t talk about this, they would have nothing else to talk about, it seems to me.
Radical Islam, Islamic extremism; I’m not sure an awful lot is gained by saying that. It doesn’t have any impact on our military posture; it doesn’t have any impact on what we call it, on the policies that we put in place. What we have to do is defined not by the terms that we use, but by the facts on the ground. So I don’t worry an awful lot about what the appropriate terminology ought to be.
I think that people need to actually think about that, and think about will we be having this conversation about words as opposed to what our actions ought to be? This is a difficult problem. This is going to be an ongoing issue. This is something that requires us to think as a nation how we are going to deal with the domestic issues that I was describing in my previous response, and how are we going to deal with the foreign policy consequences of some very, very serious problems that our allies face, and that we face, particularly in a particular part of the world. The terminology, it seems to me little to no impact on what ultimately we have to do.
Holder Blames Fox News For ‘Radical Islam’ Controversy – Greta Van Susteren
Watch the reaction to Holder’s comments. These may be some of the most truthful and honest comments ever made of the Obama administration. Its time to send the JV packing. Note to Obama, Holder et all … the jihad is not because they can’t get jobs at Arby’s.

State Department SPOX Marie Harf Trying to Defend Her ‘JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” Comments … Quotes the GWB Doctrine
GOOD GRIEF, STATE DEPT SPOX IS STILL TRYING TO DEFEND HER JOBS FOR JIHADISTS COMMENTS … WHO IS THE JV?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf goes on the defensive and tells us that we are just not smart enough to understand what she said … Marie Harf to Critics: Maybe My Comments Were ‘Too Nuanced’ for you. Looks like the MSM is giving Harf another opportunity to explain her ridiculous comments. That’s correct, Harf defends her “JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” comments. What else is the liberal Democrat media complex to do. Harf appeared with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room and attempted to clarify her point. Sorry, did I just hear Harf repeat the following, “We cannot kill every terrorist around the world, nor should we try.” NOR SHOULD WE TRY? NOR SHOULD WE TRY!!!
Maybe Barack Obama will create a new government program, Welfare and Food Stamps for terrorist.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
Unbelievable, she is quoting George W. Bush and the Bush doctrine. This from the same Obama administration that has had nothing good to say about GWB and his handling of the war on terror. Barack Obama has tried to distance himself from w, and change everything and anything away from Bush … now when backed into a corner because of so-called “nuanced” comments, they turn to GWB to defend their foreign policy. ARE YOU KIDDING? You know the Obama administration has hit rock bottom when they need W for help.
State Department spokesperson Harf tries to put the toothpaste back in the tube as she goes on the defensive regarding her ignorant comments. Check out the Twitter-fest at Twitchy as Harf is just making matters worse trying to defend her foolish comments. Hey Ms. Harf, backpedaling from beyond stupid comments is like quicksand, the more you try, the worse it gets. Get this, for the past 6 years and two years prior to that campaigning for president, Barack Obama distanced himself and trashed George W. Bush for his handled the war on terror, now his administration is quoting Bush and appealing to the Bush Doctrine.
Marie Harf - @marieharf
Jobs programs don’t quite cut it when you’re in the 72 virgins business. This is where the administration’s comprehensive denial of the motive forces driving the terrorists is key. They aren’t looking for work. They aren’t looking to get rich. They aren’t looking for early childhood education. They aren’t looking for daycare programs. They’ve got something else on their mind, something else that is taboo to speak of in the higher reaches of the Obama administration.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said this afternoon. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
“So you suggested that maybe if you find these young men jobs, they might not become terrorists?” Blitzer asked.
JOBS FOR JIHADISTS … Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathews Trashes State Dept Spox Marie Harf’s Obama Talking Points Idiocy, … “We Cannot Win This War by Killing Them” … “Lack of Opportunity for Jobs”
BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE SAME PRESIDENT WHO GAVE YOU CASH FOR CLUNKERS, NOW COMES OBAMA’S WAY TO END ISIS … JOBS FOR JIHADISTS!!!
Obama’s war on terror is in reality a jobs program for Jihadists.
Just when you thought the Obama admin could not be more of a bunch of terrorist deniers, now these libs put forth that they can end radical Islam with a jobs program. America, you know it is bad for Barack Obama when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews laughs at your foreign policy and slaps your State Department spokesperson upside her head as to Obama’s end game with ISIS. Mathews began the interview by stating, “if I were ISIS. I would not be afraid right now. There is no existential threat to these people, they can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their proper together , and killing people for show, and nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.”
State Department spokesperson Marie Harf unbelievable said the following, “We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs.” WHAT!!! Jobs, jobs? This insane administration thinks that if Jihadists have jobs, they will stop them from beheading innocent men, women and children. Just curious America, how frightened are you right now that these people are in power? This idiot speaks for Sec. of State John Kerry, who follows the foreign policy strategy of Barack Obama and she just told the enemy that an organized US military and their allies cannot defeat ISIS. I would ask the following question, then why are we there? Surprisingly, Matthews shot back with a look of, are you effing kidding me stating, “But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join.” WOW, how many times can you say that you agreed with Chris Matthews?
So let’s understand this, professor Obama is using Root cause analysis to defeat ISIS, really? The root cause analysis of burning people alive, mass beheadings, seriously? So we are going to use The 5 Whys, Barrier Analysis, Events and Causal Factor Charting and Realitycharting to determine what makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business? GOD HELP US THAT WE CAN SURVIVE THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY.
Chris Matthews amazingly says at the end, to my surprise, in response to Marie Harf’s blathering, “this sounds like how we are going to get rid of juvenile delinquency in America over time by erasing poverty and improving education.” Then Mathews said, “the American people I think are getting humiliated morally by this.” BINGO!!! And there lies Obama’s ultimate goal, he is a community agitator socialist at heart who blames America for all the evils of the world.
MARIE HARF, U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT: I think there are a few stages here, right now we are trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq & Syria, that is where they really flourish.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: Are we killing enough of them?
MARIE HARF: We’re killing a lot of them. And we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians and Jordanians, they’re in this fight with us. We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs–
CHRIS MATTHEWS: But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?
MARIE HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies, so they can have job opportunities for these people. [...] What makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business?
57% of Americans prior to this nonsense of “jobs for Jihadists” disapproved of how Barack Obama was handling ISIS, look for this number to go up as it is clear that Barack Obama has no plan or strategy to take on ISIS because frankly, he does not take it seriously.
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
Obama White House Issued a Statement Following the Shooting at a Free Speech Event in Denmark … Once Again Failed to Call it Terrorist
SHAMEFUL: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JUST CANT FIND T IN HIMSELF TO CALL TERRORIST ATTACKS FOR WHAT THEY ARE …
Following the shooting at a free speech event in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Obama White House issued a statement calling the attack “deplorable” but did not describe it as “terrorist” in nature. I guess Obama must think this was work place violence. However, the Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt had no problem what so ever calling the attack ?“politically motivated” and “terrorist.”
Denmark’s prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, said the country was on high alert after a “terrorist attack” in Copenhagen that police said had been aimed at a controversial Swedish artist.
“We feel certain now that it was a politically motivated attack, and thereby it was a terrorist attack,” she told reporters close to the site of the shooting, in which one civilian was killed and three policemen were wounded. “We are on high alert all over the country.”
Sadly, the United States has a pathetic president who cannot call terrorism for what it is. Obama cannot call obvious terrorist events for what they are because it goes against his BS, failed narrative that terrorism is being defeated. However, that is quite the opposite. Barack Obama has so downplayed the role of terrorism during his presidency that he has allowed terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda to no longer be on the run and defeated. Instead, Obama’s so-called ISIS jayvee, thanks to his lack of effort and defining the enemy, is now the Varsity.
Bob Woodward Says on ‘Fox News Sunday’ … “There’s No Strategy” For ISIS and Obama White House Is “Micromanaging” Military
FRIGHTENING, JUST FRIGHTENING …
Yesterday on FOX News Sunday, WAPO’s Bob Woodward responded to Chris Wallace’s question regarding how Barack Obama is handling the war against ISIS and what to make of Obama’s comparisons to the crusades. Woodward eviscerated the Obama White House for having no plan for dealing with ISIS.
Bob Woodward said the military is upset because Susan Rice is telling the generals how to fight.
“If you talk to people in the White House and the military, I think there’s agreement and John McCain is right and General Flynn is right, there is no strategy. They have not sat down and said this is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it. And the measure of that, when you head into the weeds here, people from the White House are micromanaging the tactical situation on a daily and weekly basis. That’s not their job. They have to kind of do strategic planning and say what do we want to accomplish in the next year […] “And they have got all these people in the White House. You talk to people in the military who are there and they say ‘we are being micromanaged and we’re not given a real plan to say what are we going to do here.’ And it’s not the way to run a war or try to win a war.”
But what would you expect from an administration that thinks this myth of ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ is a greater threat to the United States than radical Islam.
Can Lyin’ Brian survive?
As reported at the New York Post, the former NBC nightly news anchor who was at the helm when Brian Williams originally reported the fictions helicopter story taking fire, wants lying Brian Williams fired. Brian Williams was forced to apologize, but may have matters worse. According to accounts, Tom Brokaw and former NBC News President Steve Capus knew this was a false story for a long time and have been extremely uncomfortable with it. Obviously, Williams did not heed their warning and never stopped telling the lie as the fish tale got bigger and bigger. So let’s understand this, the media knew all along that Brian Williams lied about this story and did not do a damn thing? Is it any wonder why the MSM has zero credibility. Will NBC do anything to Williams, who knows? This is the same media company that has no issue hiring the likes of Al. Sharpton.
Just curious, how does some one sit at the NBC nightly news desk and have no credibility?
You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood.
NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire.
“Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.”
According to the insider source, NBC brass hasn’t been talking to lower-level employees about the situation, leaving people in a panic.
NBC bosses don’t understand how serious this is. Nobody in a leadership position is talking to the troops. Nobody has addressed it,” the source said.
One longtime NBC employee who has worked with Williams on several occasions had a few dirty words to describe the celebrated anchor, calling him a “real pompous piece of s–t.”
“He’s an a–hole,” he fumed. “He’s not a journalist. He’s a reader.”
“Oh, the fireworks that are going off inside,” he said. “It’s embarrassing. He’s the face on NBC. He’s a liar.
“Everyone knew it.”
On Friday, Brokaw responded to reports that he wanted Williams axed.
Brokaw pushed back against a New York Post story claiming he wanted Williams fired, but notably didn’t offer his own statement of support.
“I have neither demanded nor suggested Brian be fired,” Brokaw said in an email to The Huffington Post. “His future is up to Brian and NBC News executive
Charles Krauthammer Blasts Obama’s 2015 Prayer Breakfast Remarks … President was ‘banal and offensive’
Watch Charles Krauthammer blasts Barack Hussein Obama for his 2015 Prayer Breakfast comments.
Krauthammer told Sean Hannity, “I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive.”
Question: Why should we be stunned anymore as to what comes out of this president’s mouth? He is not doing so because he is stupid. Obama’s comments are calculated and purposeful. This is what he learned in the pews of Rev. Wrights black theology church, this is what he learned growing up as a child and this is what he learned from his radical, leftist, socialist mentors. This is the result of being a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “God Damn America”.
Charles Krauthammer tonight slammed President Barack Obama’s remarks today at the National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama compared ISIS attacks to the violence committed by Christians in the Crusades.
“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ,” Obama said.
Krauthammer told Sean Hannity, “I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive.”
Krauthammer noted that the speech came two days after a shocking act of barbarism, yet Obama’s message is to remember the Crusades. Krauthammer remarked that the story of the Crusades is over, and today’s story is of the overwhelming barbarism due to radical Islam.
“The present issue is Muslim radicalism and how to attack it,” he said.
Krauthammer was appalled by the comparison.
“I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive,” he said.
The famed political analyst noted that the remarks came just days after the Islamic State released a video showing them burn a Jordanian pilot in a cage.
“The present issue is Muslim radicalism and how to attack it,” Krauthammer said.
Barack Obama at 2015 Prayer Breakfast Speech Compares Today’s ISIS Terror Acts to Terrible Deeds in Name of Christ During Crusades
UNBELIEVABLE … BUT WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF WHO HAS LESS THAN 2 YEARS TO CAUSE CHAOS AND DAMAGE TO THE UNITED STATES …
Barack Hussein Obama was at it again this years Annual Prayer Breakfast with his divisive, twisted and distorted ideology. So what does the Divider in Chief, the Community agitator in Chief do at a National prayer breakfast … why lash out against Christians of course in the wake of radical Islam ISIS beheadings and the burning of a Muslim pilot alive. The 2016 elections cannot come fast enough. As radical Islam is raping young females, slaughtering innocents, beheading with impunity and burning individuals alive, this sad excuse of a president can not label these barbaric terrorists as radical Islamist, but he can find it in himself to blame Christians and make a comparison to the Crusades. UNREAL.
“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. And our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
“This is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.”
President Barack Obama spoke about religious extremism during an address at Thursday morning’s National Prayer Breakfast, noting that the “twisting and distorting” of faith is “not unique to one group or one religion” and claiming that some Christians also had a history of justifying bad deeds with the name of Jesus.
“We see sectarian war in Syria, the murder of Muslims and Christians in Nigeria, religious war in the Central African Republic, a rising tide of anti-Semitism and hate crimes in Europe, so often perpetrated in the name of religion,” Obama said during his remarks.
From there, the president implored listeners not to forget the negative history that Christianity has had in light of the Crusades and Inquisition — and with America’s own past with slavery.
This is the sad state of affairs in the United States that the American people reelected this warped, America-hating, Christian-hating president whose views and ideology were shaped by radical socialists and the religious teachings of Rev. Wright. This is the result of being a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “God Damn America”.
OBAMA ADMIN: IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT TALIBAN IS … SICK, JUST SICK.
Watch WH Obama mouthpiece contort and twist the English language so not to call the Taliban a terrorist group like ISIS so to defend the Obama administrations negotiating for the release of Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. ABC News’ Jon Karl, not Fox News, ABC News White House correspondent Karl asked White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz how the Jordanians dealing with ISIS is any different than how the Obama negotiated with the Taliban. The stuttering answer from Eric Schultz should not only surprise you, but make you fear for your national security. This is what happens when you put forth lying talking points that collide with the real world.
White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said. “I’d also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency. ISIL is a terrorist group. So we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups.” Really, the Taliban is not a terrorist group? You mean the same Taliban that murdered 153 people in a massacre at a school in Pakistan? This White House is nothing more than lying scum that put the United States of America at rick every day. It is one thing to torture the English language over what the word is, is when you are Bill Clinton trying to save his bacon amid a sex scandal, it is quite another when the safety of America and the world is at risk.
FOX News Poll … 47% say Obama downplays threat from Islamic terrorists. JUST 47%, REALLY?
JONATHAN KARL, ABC NEWS: You say the United States government does not give in to demands, does not pay ransom. But how is what the Jordanians are talking about doing any different than what the United States did to get the release of [Bowe] Bergdahl — releasing prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay to the Taliban, which is clearly a terrorist organization?
ERIC SCHULTZ, WHITE HOUSE DEPUTY PRESS SECRETARY: As you know, this was highly discussed at the time and prisoner swaps are traditional end-of-conflict interaction that happens. As the war in Afghanistan wound down we thought it was the appropriate thing to do. The president’s bedrock commitment as commander in chief is to leave no man or woman behind. That’s the principle he was operating under.
KARL: Isn’t that what the Jordanians are operating under?
SCHULTZ: Well, I think Jon –
KARL: I mean the Taliban is still conducting terrorist attacks. You can’t really say the war has ended as far as they are concerned.
SCHULTZ: Well, I’d also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency, ISIL is a terrorist group. So, we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups. We feel –
KARL: You don’t think the Taliban is a terrorist group?
SCHULTZ: I don’t think that the Taliban, um, uh — the Taliban is an armed insurgency. This was the winding down of the war in Afghanistan and that’s why this arrangement was dealt. Our view is, as the president said at the time, is as commander in chief when he sends men and women into armed combat he doesn’t want to leave anyone behind.
Take a good look at to what the Obama WH does not consider a terror group as they murder innocents at a school
YUP, The Taliban is not a terror group, as says Obama administration
ABC News’ Jon Karl asked how this differs from the U.S. decision to swap Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders at Guantanamo Bay — returning them “to the Taliban, which is clearly a terrorist organization.”
“As you know, uh, this was highly discussed at the time and prisoner swaps are a traditional end-of-conflict, uh, interaction that happens. As the war in Afghanistan wound down, we felt like it was the appropriate thing to do. The president’s bedrock commitment as commander in chief is to leave no man or woman behind, that’s the principle he was operating under,” White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said. “I’d also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency. ISIL is a terrorist group. So we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups.”
Karl followed, “You don’t think the Taliban is a terrorist group?”
Schultz had some trouble answering.
“I don’t think that the Taliban, um — uh – the Taliban is an armed insurgency,” Schultz said. “This was the winding down of the war in Afghanistan, and that’s why this arrangement was dealt.”
