CNN’s Christine Amanpour Gives Brutal Review of Obama’s Islamic State Claims at G-20 Summit … She Says, “ISIS is not Contained”
YOU KNOW ITS BAD WHEN CNN’s CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR SAYS BARACK OBAMA IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH …
Following Barack Obama’s speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey and defensive Q&A on ISIS, many have criticized his comments and his strategy on ISIS. However, no one could have seen this coming. Just how bad has Barack Obama been with his plan to defeat ISIS, if he even has one? Even uber-leftist Christine Amanpour criticized Barack Obama for his comment that his (Obama’s) strategy on ISIS was working. She then went on to same that it is not true that ISIS is contained. Did one of the most liberal MSM individuals just call Barack Obama a liar? But what should we expect from the Liar in Chief who told us that with Obamacare, you can keep your healthcare plan and doctor if you like them.
Now he wants you to believe that ISIS is contained and his plan is working, REALLY?
“If anybody was expecting to hear in the passion and eloquence and speech patterns of President Obama a tipping point, they did not hear that today,” Amanpour said, adding that he was “defensive” when pressed on American leadership.
In dismissing critics of his Islamic State strategy, Amanpour said Obama is also dismissing the “very palpable fear among citizens” in France, Britain and the United States that terrorists could target their cities next.
“He said something that is pretty incredible, according to many of the military experts here and around the world who I have spoken to — that our strategy is working,” she added.
Pushing back against the assertion, Amanpour argued only the ground troops strategy has worked to battle the Islamic State. She pointed to operations to reclaim territory from the terrorist group in Sinjar, Kobane and Tikrit as evidence of that.
“He’s saying that ISIS is contained. This is also not actually true,” she said. “ISIS is not contained because ISIS attacked a Russian plane, attacked Beirut” and now attacked Paris.
CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Asks Barack Obama: “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?” … Listen To Obama’s Defensive Answer
FROM THE FAILURE IN CHIEF, LISTEN TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA MORE DEFENSIVE AND UPSET WITH REPORTERS QUESTIONS THAN WITH ISIS …
How dare the media hold Emperor Barack Obama accountable for his failed policies, who do they think they are? Following Obama’s pathetic ISIS speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey, the King held court and answered questions from the minions. Many have been critical of Obama’s policies is dealing with ISIS, but is is startling that the liberal media is now taking the lead and posing some glaring questions to Obama. CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Barack Obama the question that pretty much all Americans have wanted to ask, “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?”
“Jim, I just spent the last three questions answering that very question, so I don’t know what more you want me to add. I think I’ve described very specifically what our strategy is, and I’ve described very specifically why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested.”
In response to Acosta’s question, Obama reiterated that the U.S. military could retake territory from the Islamic State, but the result would be occupation. An occupation, huh? Is this what this fool really thinks? So we are not going to destroy this festering cancer called ISIS because this liberal coward this it will be an occupation? Obama went on to say, “So we are going to continue to pursue the strategy that has the best chance of working, even though it does not offer the satisfaction, I guess, of a neat headline or an immediate resolution.” OBAMA, WHAT PART DON’T YOU GET THAT YOUR STRATEGY IS FAILING!!!
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta took an unusually blunt approach Monday in questioning President Barack Obama about why the United States has not destroyed the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS.
“A lot of Americans have this frustration that they see the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS,” Acosta said. “I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, but why can’t we take out these bastards?”
Obama, who was speaking in Antalya, Turkey, at the G-20 summit, responded that he had “just spent the last three questions answering that very question.”
Earlier Monday, Obama had defended the U.S. strategy against the Islamic State, which has largely focused on airstrikes, amid calls for deploying a large number of ground troops in response to the Paris terrorist attacks. Obama said a ground invasion would be a “mistake” because it would require using U.S. troops to occupy Iraqi and Syrian cities indefinitely.

Barack Obama Arrives Late for ‘Moment of Silence’ for Paris Attacks at the G-20 Conference in Turkey
OBAMA PROBABLY HAD MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO, LIKE FINISHING HIS ROUND OF GOLF OR HIS MEAL …
The optics are typical of this president. On Sunday at the G-20 conference in Turkey, Barack Obama showed up late on a moment of silence being held by world leaders to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. I am certain he will find someone to blame for his being late to this function. Had it been Obama providing an apology to the conference for the United States being responsible for the rise of ISIS and terrorism, I am certain he would have been on time.
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Reporters traveling with the president said Mr. Obama had not yet arrived when other world leaders at the G-20 conference in Turkey began their silent observance around a large conference table.
Mr. Obama walked in after they had begun, and took his place next to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
FROM BARACK OBAMA, THE IDIOT AND LIAR IN CHIEF WHO CLAIMS ISIS WAS THE JV …
Take a good look at the greatest failure that the United States has ever had the misfortune to be elected President of the United States. Barack Obama is a dangerous, EPIC FAILURE!!! Earlier in the day before the Paris, France radical Islamist terror attack, in an interview with ABC News Democrat media lapdog George Stephanopoulos Barack Obama stated that ISIS was “contained”. Well this might be the worst timed interview and one of the biggest lies from Obama’s lips. Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is contained and not gaining strength, tell that to the 129 innocent people killed in France on Friday and to those aboard the Russian airplane that was blown out of the sky last week by what all accounts was most likely a bomb of which ISIS has claimed responsibility.
ISIS contained, are you kidding me? Obama has been an complete failure when it comes to ISIS and has just kicked the can down the road to the next president. ISIS is not gaining strength … This brought to you by the liar who told the American people, If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. This from the president who cannot even utter the words, radical Islam.
Critics are lashing out at President Obama in the wake of the attacks in Paris on Friday for remarks he made to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos a day earlier in which he said that ISIS was “contained.”
“From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them,” Obama told ABC on Thursday. “They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria it — they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
The comment came just hours before the announcement of a U.S. airstrike in Syria that had targeted ‘Jihadi John.’ But the mainly symbolic victory was cut short following the attacks in Paris on Friday in which at least 127 people were killed.
Obama Scolds CBS News Reporter Major Garrett When He is Questioned Why Obama is Content with all the Fan Fair Around the Nuke Deal When 4 Americans Remain in Iran Prisons?
WOW, WATCH OBAMA GET PISSED AS A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA CALLS HIM ON WHY US HOSTAGES ARE STILL IN IRAN PRISONS AFTER OBAMA CAPITULATED ON EVERYTHING TO IRAN …
Watch the VIDEO below and you will see why Barack Obama is a pathetic leader and a small man. CBS News reporter Major Garrett got under Obama’s skin when he questioned why a negotiation was made with Iran for nukes where at the end many concessions were obviously made to the State sponsors of terror, why four Americans remain as hostages in Iran? The reporter asked, why Obama is “content” to spike the football and accept all the fan fair for this deal when Americans remain hostage.
If looks could kill. How dare anyone in the media dare question the Supreme leader, Barack Obama.
The president later took umbrage when CBS News reporter Major Garrett asked why he is “content” the freedom of American prisoners held in Iran was not secured, despite their cases apparently being raised.
“The notion that I am content, as I celebrate, with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails — Major, that’s nonsense, and you should know better,” Obama said, adding: “I’ve met with the families of some of those folks, and nobody’s content.”
The president said teams are working “diligently” to free them, but said tying their freedom to negotiations could create an incentive for Iran to use American prisoners as leverage for concessions.
Obama also acknowledged there will still be “problems with Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism” and other issues — but said to oppose this deal because it doesn’t resolve all those issues “defies logic. It makes no sense.”
Secretay of State John Kerry Cheers Iranian Nuclear Talks As Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei Leads “Death to America” Cheers in Tehran
AND YOU WONDER WHY BARACK OBAMA IS SO PISSED AT ISRAEL PM NETANYAHU FOR COMING TO THE US AND SPEAKING THE TRUTH OF IRAN TO CONGRESS …
So why is it that we are supposed to trust Iran on any nuclear deal? No sooner was Secretary of State John Kerry singing the praises of the Iranian/US nuclear talks than along comes the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei calling for “death to America”. This is exactly the type of people we need to be trusting in any type of deal. This as the Barack Obama and John Kerry tell us to trust Iran and the Obama administration to make a deal. ARE YOU SERIOUS? Since when has Iran not been the #1 country in the world for state sponsored terrorism? They have their hands in so many proxy wars throughout the Middle East and now Obama wants to trust them. Good grief. Even Charlie Brown questions Lucy before he kicks the football. We all know how that ends don’t we.
What has Iran ever done since the 1970′s and the fall of the Shah of Iran to make us believe that they are an honest broker? Hell, for the fact, what has Barack Obama done to make us believe the same? So what is Obama spewing this time, “If you like your nuclear bombs, you can keep them?”
A note to Obama, the enemy or you enemy still wants to wipe out America.
Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.
Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.
“They insist on putting pressure on our dear people’s economy,” he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear program. “What is their goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system,” he said. “The politics of America is to create insecurity,” he added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region.
Khamenei’s comments contrasted with those of Iranian President Hassan Rohani, who said “achieving a deal is possible” by the March 31 target date for a preliminary accord.
Kerry was more circumspect, as he spoke to reporters after six days of negotiations in the Swiss city of Lausanne. The talks, made “substantial progress,” he said, but “important gaps remain.
As the PJ Tatler opines, is Obama a fool or a knave? After witnessing six years of this divisive, hateful narcissist whose goal of transforming America for the worse has done such damage to the United States that will take years and decades to repair, I am going to opt on the side of a knave, a dishonest man. In the video below Barack Obama talks about this great opportunity we have with Iran and his hopes he has with the Republican of Iran. Obama called it the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Where were you Obama when the people of Iran, the ones that you claims to talk to know, were rising up in the streets against the oppressive Mullahs? One would think that was the greatest opportunity when the people wanted a change. Instead Obama backed all the other Arab countries that looked for change in the Arab Spring.
Sorry President Obama, you have proved the the American people that you cannot be trusted. You are a liar and a dangerous one at that. You have made America worse, the last thing we need is for you to be making the entire world a worse place as well. Who in their right mind would want to make Iran the power broker of the Middle East?
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.
Barack Hussein Obama Refuses to Call Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu After His Big Victory (Update: Obama Finally Calls, “Reassess” Its options on US-Israel Relations)
THE INCREDIBLY SHRINKING PRESIDENT … JUST HOW SMALL, PETTY AND THIN SKINNED IS BARACK OBAMA.
One needs to look no further to witness the lack of class, the pettiness and the pathetic “smallish” behavior of President Barack Obama than to examine his behavior falling the victory by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in yesterdays landslide election. Following Benjamin Netanyahu’s huge win, Barack Obama has not called the Israel Prime Minister to congratulate him. Even for Obama, this is small. Really, this is how we treat an ally? But the incredibly shrinking Obama is throwing a temper tantrum because Netanyahu’s big win means an Obama big and embarrassing loss. All of Obama’s attempts to interfere in the Israel election and have Netanyahu ousted were for naught.
But this is the sad state of affairs that the United States sees itself in as a clueless and apathetic electorate have voted this little Napoleon into office, who is the most liberal ideologue, that America has ever had to endure. So I guess the transformation of America is to attack our allies unless they goose-step to Obama’s wishes. 2016 cannot come soon enough.
Really, this president has the audacity to question anyone about using rhetotic in an election. Seriously Barack, you might want to take a look at yourself in the mirror and see just how you conducted yourself in the 2008 and 2012 elections. And the crap you have spewed in between.
UPDATE I: NY Times – Obama May Find It Impossible to Mend Frayed Ties to Netanyahu.
President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel had a poisonous relationship long before Mr. Netanyahu swept to victory on Tuesday night in elections watched minute-by-minute at the White House.
But now that Mr. Netanyahu has won after aggressively campaigning against a Palestinian state and Mr. Obama’s potential nuclear deal with Iran, the question is whether the president and prime minister can ever repair their relationship — and whether Mr. Obama will even try.
On Wednesday, part of the answer seemed to be that the president would not make the effort.
In strikingly strong criticism, the White House called Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign rhetoric, in which he railed against Israeli Arabs because they went out to vote, an attempt to “marginalize Arab-Israeli citizens” and inconsistent with the values that bind Israel and the United States. The White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, told reporters traveling with Mr. Obama on Air Force One on Wednesday that Mr. Netanyahu’s statement was “deeply concerning and it is divisive and I can tell you that these are views the administration intends to communicate directly to the Israelis.”
UPDATE II: Obama calls to congratulate Netanyahu.
Barack Obama finally calls to congratulate Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his recent victory; however, it was far from friendly or cordial. The thin skinned Obama, still smarting from his guy not winning the Israel election, basically made the following salutations, Congratulations, and by the way, we’re going to re-access our policy with Israel since you won. How big of Obama.
President Barack Obama told Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday that Washington would “reassess” its options on U.S.-Israel relations and Middle East diplomacy after the Israeli prime minister took a position against Palestinian statehood during his re-election campaign, a White House official said.
Obama’s telephone call to Netanyahu followed a television interview in which the Israeli leader backed away from his pre-election declaration that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch, an about-face apparently aimed at quelling U.S. criticism triggered by his comments.
The White House, unmoved by Netanyahu’s effort to backtrack, delivered a fresh rebuke against him on Thursday and signaled that Washington may reconsider its decades-old policy of shielding close ally Israel from international pressure at the United Nations.
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THIS MISLEADER COULDN’T BLAME ANYONE ELSE FOR HIS FAILURES AS PRESIDENT …
THE COMMUNITY AGITATOR IS AT IT AGAIN … In an interview with Vice News, Barack Hussein Obama was provided a soft ball interview with fellow Leftists. Fast forward to the 11:42 minute mark of the video below unless you want to annoy yourself and listen to Obama blather about global warming, his Unconstitutional acts and his terrible Iran deal. Obama is asked, how did ISIS become so popular, so fast? Barack Hussein Obama’s response was to blame Bush. Just curious, isn’t there a statute of limitations on blaming Bush? Obama said, “ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
NO YOU IDIOT … I THOUGHT YOU SAID ISIS WAS THE JV! Obama, you never took them seriously because you take nothing serious. YOU ARE TO BLAME FOR ISIS! INVASION? Mr. President, you are to blame for ISIS as ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of
our invasion Obama’s knee-jerk reaction to leave Iraq too soon and create a power vacuum that allowed the terrorist group to grow. How unbecoming of a president to just not admit fault. Sorry Barack, but the world is a less safe place since you have been president.
President Obama pinned the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on former President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq while calling for more investment in diplomacy and education to stop terrorism.
“Two things: one is, ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion,” Obama said in an interview with VICE News. “Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
Obama’s direct shot at Bush comes despite the fulfillment of his own campaign promises to pull troops out of Iraq. Obama completed the troop draw down in 2011 — an achievement the administration touted as a major victory but which left a power vacuum which ISIS is attempting to fill.
Fast forward to the 11:42
This is one sad and pathetic president.
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.
