50 World Leaders at Paris Anti-Terror, Day of Unity Rally, But No President Barack Obama, VP Joe Biden or Sec. of State John Kerry
MILLIONS GATHER AGAINST TERRORISM: Noticeable absent from the worlds show of unity against radical Muslim terrorism was President Barack Hussein Obama …
Nearly four million turned out across France today for unity rallies and nearly one million in Paris, the largest number of people turned out in Paris France since the liberation of Paris from Nazi, Germany during World War II. The more than 50 world leaders showed at the Paris march for the “Day of Unity” that included those from Germany, Italy, Poland, Israel, the UK, Ireland, Mali, the UN Secretary General, the US Secretary of State and the Palestinian President. The world leaders and millions of people paid their honor and respects to the 17 individuals who were killed by radical-Muslim terrorist in the last few days at Charlie Hebdo and a Paris kosher deli. Yesterday, the France’s Prime Minister declared war with radical Islam.
Vive la liberté!!!

Paris March: Millions Attend ‘Cry for Freedom’ Rally for Unity
What a show of disrespect that the Obama administration pretty much sent no one to this important show of world solidarity against radical Islam and terror. No Obama, no Biden, no Kerry.

Charles Krauthammer: The Terror Attack in France on Charlie Charlie Hebdo Shows We Can Not Retain The Ambivalence Obama Has Taken Toward Nature Of War
Last night on Special Report syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer called the war on terror under President Barack Obama for what it has been, a non-seriousness of the big picture in a war against those that want to destroy us and our way of life in jihad. This is not to be conducted as a police action, it is war.
“And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war.”
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Obama said we stand with the people of Ukraine. He said that we stand with the people of Syria. You know, they did the hashtag and the tweet of the girls in Nigeria. It’s nice to say all these things but if you are — by default or whatever reason — the leader of the free world as we have been you’re supposed to do something if you say that.
Look, I don’t think you want to blame anybody. I just think that these events are a reminder, and it’s not so much the attack on Australia, which was a semi-lunatic, who was sort of, you know, a deranged — there are deranged people around the world who will latch on to this ideology and abuse it. These guys did not look like deranged wanderers trying to discover a purpose or an identity. These are people who are killers, trained — the way they executed that cop laying on the street.
This is a war against an enemy and these are the elements of it. And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war. And that’s what worries me because as long as we think that we can deal with this like law enforcement we are going to be continuing to be exposed to a threat that could hit us as easily as it hits them and it deprives us of the weapons like interrogation, like intelligence, like human intelligence that Obama is depriving us of and has been for six years.

Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson Lets 18 Year Old Devon Coley Out of Jail without Bail After Posting Online Threats to Shoot Cops (Update: Judge Releases Travis Maye Without Bail After Punching Cop)
So this is the New York City’s judicial response following two police officers being killed and the endless death threats, cowardice appeasement?
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let 18 year old Devon Coley waltz free without a care in the world after he was arrested for making terrorist threats. The judge ignored prosecutors requests to keep Coley behind bars as she let the thug go free without bail. UNBELIEVABLE. Devon Coley posted online threats to gun down cops just hours after the shooting deaths of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Coley is believed to be a member of the of the ATC/180HII Crew gang and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
The judge conceded that the posts were “stupid” and an “incredible inflammatory thing to do right now,” but added, “I think that for me to set bail because of the current climate — it would be a misuse of bail.”
WHAT!!! I GUESS THIS IS WHAT JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO LIKE LIKE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY WHEN A THUG COMMITS A CRIME AGAINST THE POLICE?
Coley posted on Facebook a disturbing image of a gunman blasting away at a patrol car,
with the phrase “73Nextt” — a reference to the 73rd Precinct, which covers his Brownsville neighborhood.
A Brooklyn judge cut loose a gang member who had posted online threats to gun down cops in the hours after two NYPD officers were executed in their patrol car — ignoring prosecutors’ pleas to keep him behind bars, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let Devon Coley, 18, waltz free without bail despite the fact that he faces seven years behind bars on charges he made a terroristic threat — complete with an image of a killer shooting cops in their car — and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
Johnson’s stunning no-bail decision came just two days after Saturday’s broad-daylight slayings of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu by a gunman bent on avenging the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police.
At the punks arraignment Monday night, Coley’s court-appointed lawyer painted him as a mere “knucklehead” who didn’t intend to make good on his threat. Forget the fact that the thug is a gang member and waiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession. Yeah right, he is just misunderstood. What the hell has infested the power structure in NYC? Between the Mayor and the judiciary, insane liberal logic appears to appease criminals and attach police authority. Dennis Quirk, head of the state court officers union, said that “She should resign from the bench,” and she is “not fit to be a judge.” Ya think?
Since when did NYC become a catch and release stream for criminal thugs? The same judge has now released another thug without bail after he had been arrested for punching a police officer. Maybe she would like to go for the hat trick after one of these punks kills another police officer.
She keeps turning ’em loose.
A day after freeing a gang member who posted an anti-cop death threat online, a Brooklyn judge ignored the admonishment of a court boss — and sprung a man who allegedly punched a police officer and threatened to kill his colleagues, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson blatantly disregarded an Office of Court Administration boss who said she “should be setting an example to the public that threatening or assaulting police officers isn’t an acceptable thing,” a courthouse source said.
The admonishment came in the wake of Saturday’s execution-style slayings of two NYPD cops as they sat in a patrol car in Brooklyn.
On Tuesday night, Johnson released Travis Maye, 26, without bail following his arrest in a violent melee with cops earlier that day.
According to court records, Maye took swings at cops at Flatbush Avenue and Prospect Place at around 1:35 a.m., socking one officer in the eye and sending him to the hospital.
Good Grief, Now Theaters Cancel Screenings of ‘Team America’ Per Paramount Pictures … Joe Scarborough Goes Off, “If We Have Gotten to the Point Now Where Ypu are Banning Puppet Movies Because You Fear North Korea, YOU SUCK”
WHO NEEDS GOVERNMENT TO SENSOR THE MEDIA WHEN YOU HAVE HOLLYWOOD …
UNREAL … Now it would appear that we are canceling screenings of ‘Team America’. Seriously, is this how gutless and cowardice we have become? The United States is turning tail to North Korea, REALLY? I do not think I could have said it better than Joe Scarborough, “If we have gotten to the point now where you are banning puppet movies because you fear North Korea, let me just say, YOU SUCK!!! I’m glad you don’t guard the Pentagon, I’m glad you weren’t there in 1944 scaling the walls of Normandy, YOU JUST SUCK.”
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and two other theaters with plans to screen “Team America: World Police” instead of Sony’s “The Interview” next week have abruptly cancelled those plans. They say Paramount Pictures, which made the “Team America” film, pulled the movie from all theaters. We’ve reached out to the movie studio for comment, and we’ll update if we hear from them.
When hackers give you lemons, you’ve got to make lemonade.
One Dallas-area movie theater refuses to take the fallout from Sony’s epic data breach sitting down. In true Texas form, it’s dialed up the patriotism to 15 and announced plans to host a screening of “Team America: World Police” instead of the embattled assassination comedy “The Interview” next week.
Must watch VIDEO, my response to Joe Scarborough, F*CK YEAH!!! (warning: language)
This is what the movie thrqatres and Paramount pictures were afraid to show, really? The damn movie came out in …. Hey, Terrorize this!
Sen Bob Menendez D-NJ) Slams Naive Barack Obama on Cuba … “Fallacy to Believe Cuba Will Reform Because an American President Opens His Hands & the Castro Brothers Will Suddenly Unclench Their Fists”
BARACK OBAMA: THE NAIVE, UNICORN RIDING COMMANDER IN CHIEF
Democrat New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez, a Cuban-American whose parents immigrated to Union City, NJ in the 1950s, blasted President Barack Obama’s motions toward normalization of relations with Raul and Fidel Castro’s government in Cuba. Menedez saidhe was disappointed in the president and “I think it stinks”.Menedez was also none too happy that the Obama administration had been negotiating with Cuba for more than a year and he was never consulted.
“I think it stinks,” Menendez, the son of Cuban immigrants and the outgoing Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, said at a press conference on new financial help for Hurricane Sandy residents. “I think it’s wrong. I am deeply disappointed in the president.”
Angry over Obama’s failure to consult him on the talks involving Cuba, which lasted more than a year, Menendez said he would not approve easing the U.S. economic embargo on Cuba, which can only be done by Congress, and called on the incoming chairman of the committee, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) to hold hearings when the new Congress convenes in January.
By releasing Mr. Gross in exchange for three convicted Cuban spies who conspired to commit espionage against our nation, this administration has wrongly rewarded a totalitarian regime and thrown the Cuban regime an economic lifeline.
For compromising on bedrock U.S. values, we received zero commitments from the regime to change its ways, to hold free elections, permit dissent, halt censorship and free all political prisoners. We abandoned U.S. policy, while the Castro brothers’ stranglehold on power just got tighter.
This swap sets an extremely dangerous precedent and invites dictatorial and rogue regimes to use Americans serving overseas as bargaining chips.
Most concerning is that the decision to open relations with Cuba fails to understand the nature of the Castro regime that has exerted its authoritarian control over the Cuban people for 55 years.
There is no reason that Cuba will reform just because the American president believes that, if he extends his hand in peace, the Castro brothers will suddenly unclench their fists.
Bipartisan Blasting of Barack Obama’s Change in Policy on Cuba … Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) & Marco Rubio (R-FL) Rip Obama, “Worst Negotiator in Modern US History
FINALLY WE HAVE BIPARTISAN AGREEMENT IN THE SENATE … AGAINST OBAMA’S CHANGE IN RELATIONS WITH CASTRO’S CUBA …
Following Barack Obama’s change in foreign relations with Communist Cuba, Obama feels the bipartisan backlash of politicians. Republicans and Democrats alike both question the purpose and the wisdom behind Obama’s actions. Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) both blasted Obama’s ill-advised, naive and foolish changes in relations with Cuba.
Marco Rubio went on to say, “the Cubans have agreed to release political prisoners and allow more internet access; however, they are creating no economic openings, no concessions on freedom of speech, no concessions on elections, no concession on freedom to have alternate political parties, no concessions on having elections.” Where are the democratic concessions from Communist Cuba? But this is Obama’s MO, giving away the farm unilaterally, ,”in exchange for nothing”. Rubio stated that Barack Obama … he is the worst negotiator in modern US history.
“My interest in Cuba has been the furthering of democracy and freedom,” Rubio said. “Nothing the president will announce today will further that goal…It’s part of long record of coddling dictators and tyrants this administration has.”
“They’ve created no economic openings, no concessions on freedom of speech, no concessions on elections, no alternative political parties. …The idea that this leads to democratic opening is absurd, but it is par for the course for an administration possibly giving away unilateral concessions for Iran or Cuba in exchange for nothing.”
RUBIO RIPS OBAMA … “Nothing the president will do will further that goal” of Democracy and freedom
But wait, it is not just Republicans that are livid with Barack Obama’s actions. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez condemned Obama’s Cuban prisoner swap today after it was announced. Menendez said the deal, “vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government.”
Sen. Robert Menendez (N.J.), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is slamming President Obama over the deal to release an American held in Cuba.
“President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government,” Menendez, known for his tough stance on Cuba, said in a statement.
“There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation.”
American aid worker Alan Gross, who was held in Cuba for five years for trying to set up Internet for a small Jewish community, was released on Wednesday as the U.S. released three Cuban agents convicted of spying.
Menendez said the move “sets an extremely dangerous precedent.”
“It invites dictatorial and rogue regimes to use Americans serving overseas as bargaining chips. I fear that today’s actions will put at risk the thousands of Americans that work overseas to support civil society, advocate for access to information, provide humanitarian services, and promote democratic reforms.”
UNREAL … THE AGITATOR AND CHIEF IS AT IT AGAIN.
President Barack Obama announced that the United States will normalize relations with Communist Cuba. As the WAPO writes, Obama gives the Castro regime in Cuba an undeserved bailout. What would you expect from a man who blames America for everything bad in the world. Note to Obama, Cuba is run by Communist dictators, or don’t you care?
Obama & Raul Castro, Bosom Buddies
After a half-century of Cold War acrimony, the United States and Cuba moved on Wednesday to restore diplomatic relations — a historic shift that could revitalize the flow of money and people across the narrow waters that separate the two nations.
President Barack Obama’s dramatic announcement in Washington — seconded by Cuban President Raul Castro in Havana — was accompanied by a quiet exchange of imprisoned spies and the celebratory release of American Alan Gross, a government contract worker who had been held in Cuba for five years.
The shift in U.S.-Cuba policy was the culmination of 18 months of secret talks between the longtime foes that included a series of meetings in Canada and the personal involvement of Pope Francis at the Vatican. It also marked an extraordinary undertaking by Obama without Congress’ authorization as he charts the waning years of his presidency.
“These 50 years have shown that isolation has not worked,” Obama declared at the White House. “It’s time for a new approach.”
Obama spoke as Castro was addressing his nation in Havana, where church bells rang and school teachers paused lessons to mark the news. Castro said that while the U.S. and Cuba remain at odds on many matters, “we should learn the art of living together in a civilized manner in spite of our differences.”
Obama’s plans for remaking U.S. relations with Cuba are sweeping: He aims to expand economic ties, open an embassy in Havana, send high-ranking U.S. officials including Secretary of State John Kerry to visit and review Cuba’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. The U.S. also is easing restrictions on travel to Cuba, including for family visits, official government business and educational activities. But tourist travel remains banned.
Hmm,an embassy in Cuba eh? Who is going to approve the funding for that or vote for the approval of an ambassador?
MAYBE HILLARY CLINTON IS NOT THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE …
As the folks at The Daily Caller said, “That’s weird. You mean to say that America took one look at this and said ‘No thank you’?” Let’s hope the American voters have the same reaction. Do people have Clinton fatigue? Let’s face it, she has been a nightmare as a politician, a disaster as Secretary of State and well, and you make the call as a person.
In June, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on the cover of People magazine for the first time in more than a decade. Real people, not the magazine, talked about what the article might mean for 2016. They talked about whether Clinton was using a walker (she wasn’t). They talked about people talking about whether Clinton was using a walker (She still wasn’t).
What they didn’t do was buy the magazine. According to a report from AdWeek on Monday, the June 16 issue of People featuring the former first lady and senator was the magazine’s worst selling of 2014 with 503,890 copies sold. The magazine’s best-selling issue –1,169,800 copies — was the one featuring Robin Williams after his death in late August. AdWeek said that celebrity weeklies saw poor performances with issues that featured the Kardashians and Beyonce on the cover.
There is many things that young people would be shocked about when it comes to Hillary Clinton. Especially, her war on woman in defending Bill Clinton’s affairs.
College students at Florida International University were shocked recently to discover that not only is Hillary Clinton 67 years old, but she also hasn’t driven a car since 1996.
Lauren Cooley, a field representative with Turning Point USA, recently asked 20 students if they knew these fun facts about the possible 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Of those interviewed at the public research university, home to roughly 50,000 students, only six guessed Clinton is in her 60s, but of those, they still thought she was younger than 67, Cooley told The Fix. Most thought she is in her 40s or 50s, and expressed surprise at her real age, according to a video of the interviews.
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.
Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday On Obama,”I Think for the President to Promote this Division … It Didn’t Happen. And that’s Tearing This Country Apart & On Hillary Clinton, “She Can’t Sell a Book. She Can’t Sell an Auditorium. The Hype Finally is Over.”
Rush Limbaugh speaks the truth on the Divider in Chief Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton 2016 chances and Republicans knowing how to lose the White House.
Love him or hate him, El Rushbo speaks the truth, it’s just a matter of whether you can handle the truth. Rush appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and discussed a litany of issues from Barack Obama embracing division with regards to race relations in the United States to police arresting people to collect taxes on cigarettes to Republicans cowardice over government shutdown to Hillary Clinton’s presidential chances in 2016, Jeb Bush’s chances for 2016 and the GOP knowing how to lose presidential elections.
Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday
LIMBAUGH: I don’t think that things are rosy and perfect in America, but to say that they’re no better, as the mayor of New York said, that’s absurd. We’ve made all kinds of efforts to improve race relations in this country. The 1964 Civil Rights Act, affirmative action, we have bent over backwards.
Is it all perfect? No, it’s not. But there’s no acknowledgment of any progress, Chris. If you listen to these people, the president, the mayor of New York, you would think it’s 200 years ago. You would think we haven’t even started working on these problems, and that’s not true.
And I think for the president to promote this division as he just did in that clip that you said, and mischaracterize what happened here — he’s talking in large part about Ferguson and what he described did not happen in Ferguson, and what most of the media is describing did not happen in Ferguson, Missouri. There was no “hands up, don’t shoot.” It didn’t happen. And that’s tearing this country apart.
We have people to whom the truth is relative. And they’re using whatever power they have to try to redefine the truth for the advance of their own political agenda. And it’s just not productive. And the president taking sides in this in a way that further divides the country I find reprehensible and very unfortunate.
CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Hillary Clinton. How worried should Republicans be about Hillary Clinton as the Democratic potential Democratic nominee in 2016?
On the Republican side for 2016 presidential chances:
I think Jeb — the Republican Party is totally absorbed in this comprehensive immigration business, and Jeb is out there claiming the only way he can get nominations is somehow run against the base in the primaries. I think the Republicans have demonstrated they know how to lose the White House, and it’s time to change direction, change strategy. They’ve got that down path. And it’s not — they’re not going to win by continuing to do the same thing over and over again.
