UNREAL … White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Has No Idea What Victory Over ISIS Looks Like

FEEL SAFE AMERICA … THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE HAS NO IDEA WHAT VICTORY OVER ISIS LOOKS LIKE, THEN JOKES ABOUT IT.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked a rather simple question today by Yahoo! News correspondent Olivier Knox, following President Obama’s ISIS speech last night, what “victory” over the Islamic State would look like and what “destroy” really means? Earnest replied with a joke, “I didn’t bring my Webster’s Dictionary up here.” WTF!!! Really, if ISIS and their destruction a laughing matter? How does one plan a strategy against a terror group like ISIS and not define what a victory is?  These are serious times and call for serious people. Sadly, we have nothing by jokes in the White House. It starts from the top and trickles down … these people are not serious and America should be scared as hell they are in charge.

There is a reason why Gallup poll now says that Republican party better able to protect United States than Democrats from terrorism, 55% to 32%.

NewsBusters:

REPORTER (according to the Washington Times Yahoo! News correspondent Olivier Knox), it was :What does victory look like here? You’ve talked about destroying ISIL, I honestly don’t know what that means. What does that mean?

JOSH EARNEST: I didn’t bring my Webster’s dictionary with me up here. We’ll, you know. It’s only –

REPORTER: Talking about that — I understood it when you said –

JOSH EARNEST: I think that’s a pretty illustrative phrase to describe the situation that we envision. We’ve talked about the threat that ISIL poses in the context of foreign fighters.

When Liberals Attack Each Other … Bill Maher To Charlie Rose, To Claim that Islam Is Like Other Religions Is Naive And Plain Wrong … “Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it.”

IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER TO SEE THAN TWO LIBS GOING AFTER EACH OTHER?

Okay this is rather frightening, hell might have just froze over. In the course of a week I find myself first agreeing with Michael Moore and now Bill Maher. YIKES!!! During an interview with Charlie Rose, uber-lib Bill Maher and even bigger uber-lib Rose clashed over Islam when Rose tried to link Islam to Christianity and tried to disavow radical Muslims as representatives of the religion. Bill Maher refuted Rose in saying it is just naive and plain wrong to claim that Islam is like other religions. Then provided some common sense examples. It has always been the ultimate in hypocrisy how the LEFT would embrace Islam and condemn Christianity or Judaism. It is Islam that treats women as second class citizens, it is Islam that would have zero tolerance for gays or anyone else who was not of Islam. Yet most libs just turn a blind eye to it and pretend like it does not exist

MAHER: There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people that –

ROSE: A vast number of Christians too.

MAHER: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it. Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second class citizens.

MAHER: – do not believe if you draw a picture of Jesus Christ you should get killed for it. So yes, does ISIS do Khmer Rouge-like activities where they just kill people indiscriminately who aren’t just like them? Yes. And would most Muslim people in the world do that or condone that? No.

Rose  went on to claim that “moderate Muslims” do not approve of the actions of radical groups like ISIS, Maher provided proof that it was not the case. Rose said the Koran does not teach Muslims to do “these kind of things.” Good grief, has this dude actually ever read the Koran?

MAHER: But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think.

ROSE: How do you know that?

MAHER: They do. First of all they say it. They shout it.

ROSE: Vast majorities of Muslims say that?

MAHER: Absolutely. There was a Pew poll in Egypt done a few years ago — 82% said, I think, stoning is the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80% thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion. I’m sure you know these things.

ROSE: Well I do. But I don’t believe –

MAHER: So to claim that this religion is like other religions is just naive and plain wrong. It is not like other religious. The New York Times pointed out in an op-ed a couple weeks ago that in Saudi Arabia just since August 4th, they think it was, they have beheaded 19 people. Most for non-violent crimes including homosexuality.

And So Her 2016 Presidential Campaign Begins, Hillary Clinton Blames Rise of Islamic Militants (ISIS) on Obama’s Failed Policies & “Stupid Stuff”

Hillary Clinton blames Islamic militants rise on Barack Obama’s failed policies. But what difference does it make Hillary?

Suddenly, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blames US foreign policy failures under President Barack Obama for the rise of Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria. Of course the follow up question would be, what foreign policy? In an interview with The Atlantic, Hillary suggested that Obama lacked a strategy for dealing with the jihadist threat. She said, “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”  Hillary was  referring to an Obama slogan. OUCH. Hey Libs and Dems, that’s Hillary Clinton agreeing with Conservatives and Republicans. How are them apples?

Obama and Hillary in friendlier times

The Gateway Pundit reminds us of what Clinton was saying on September 2011. In an interview with VOA Hillary Clinton said, “Al-Qaeda was on the path of defeat.”

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton blamed the rise of Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria on failures of US policy under President Barack Obama, in an interview published Sunday.

Clinton specifically faulted the US decision to stay on the sidelines of the insurgency against Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad as opening the way for the most extreme rebel faction, the Islamic State.

“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad —- there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle -— the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton told the Atlantic.

Clinton, widely considered an undeclared presidential candidate, was an unsuccessful advocate of arming the Syrian rebels when she was secretary of state during Obama’s first term.

Hillary has lost that luvin’, sycophant feeling

The Atlantic: Hillary Clinton: ‘Failure’ to Help Syrian Rebels Led to the Rise of ISIS.

President Obama has long ridiculed the idea that the U.S., early in the Syrian civil war, could have shaped the forces fighting the Assad regime, thereby stopping al Qaeda-inspired groups—like the one rampaging across Syria and Iraq today—from seizing control of the rebellion. In an interview in February, the president told me that “when you have a professional army … fighting against a farmer, a carpenter, an engineer who started out as protesters and suddenly now see themselves in the midst of a civil conflict—the notion that we could have, in a clean way that didn’t commit U.S. military forces, changed the equation on the ground there was never true.”

Well, his former secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, isn’t buying it. In an interview with me earlier this week, she used her sharpest language yet to describe the “failure” that resulted from the decision to keep the U.S. on the sidelines during the first phase of the Syrian uprising.

“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad—there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle—the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton said.

At one point, I mentioned the slogan President Obama recently coined to describe his foreign-policy doctrine: “Don’t do stupid shit” (an expression often rendered as “Don’t do stupid stuff” in less-than-private encounters).

This is what Clinton said about Obama’s slogan: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”

She softened the blow by noting that Obama was “trying to communicate to the American people that he’s not going to do something crazy,” but she repeatedly suggested that the U.S. sometimes appears to be withdrawing from the world stage.

But Hillary, what difference does it make? Oh, it suddenly becomes something to speak out and talk about to distance yourself from Obama’s failed policies because you want to run for president in 2016.

Judge Jeanine Pirro to Barack Obama … It’s Time to Get Your ‘Big Boy Pants On’ & Stop Kidding Around

Judge Jeanine Pirro says it’s time for Obama to put your big boy pants on!

The world is in chaos with five major crisis going in Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Israel & Hamas and the United States Southern border. These problems are of Obama’s doing his his incoherent foreign policy and a refusal to enforce existing US immigration laws. Pirro tells Obama … PUT YOUR ON YOUR BIG BOY PANTS AND GET IN THE GAME WITH A COHERENT FOREIGN POLICY!!!” Hey Barack, it’s time to remove the mom jeans.

Secretary of State John Kerry Caught on Hot Mic Comment About Israel … “It’s a Hell of a Pinpoint Operation”

Once again the Obama administration treats it’s allies with condemnation … Kerry was for saying it was an Israel hell of a pinpoint operation, before he was against it.

Secretary of State John Kerry was caught on a hot mic during this Sunday morning’s round robin of talk shows with some interesting and blunt remarks as a condemnation of Israeli tactics Kerry said on the open mic, . “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation” not once but twice.”The Washington Post’s reports:

Kerry’s comments are clear. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” he says, then repeats it. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.” It’s an apparent reference to Israel’s insistence that its incursion into the region would be limited. “It’s escalating significantly,” the person on the phone replies, and Kerry then says: “We’ve got to get over there. I think we ought to go tonight.” He then calls it “crazy” to be “sitting around.”

Sec. of State Kerry was asked by Chris Wallace on ‘Fox News Sunday’ what he meant by his comments. As reported at Powerline, In an unusual moment during Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace presented Secretary of State John Kerry with video recorded before he came on air and asked Kerry whether he thought that Israel went too far? Let the double talk begin.

“When you said it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Wallace asked, are you “upset that the Israelis are going too far?”

“It’s very difficult in these situations,” Kerry said, repeating that the United States supports Israel’s right to defend itself. He then explained his comments by saying, “I reacted, obviously, in a way that anybody does in respect to young children and civilians.”

Al Qaeda Magazine Suggesting Target List for Attacks Including The US Tennis Open

 Who finds it a little bizarre that Al Qaeda has a magazine that would announce their terror intentions?

In a briefing for New York City’s private security community, Rebecca Weiner, the NYPD’s director of intelligence analysis, warned that Inspire magazine, Al Qaeda magazine, is instructing terrorists on how to make bombs and where to set them off. It would appear that the US Tennis Open in Flushing Meadows, Queens, NY has made the list. Will Al Qaeda now start targeting sporting events where infidels are just having a good time and bothering no one? Was the Boston Marathon just the beginning?

The US Open Tennis Championship appears on a wish list of terror targets in an al Qaeda magazine, an NYPD official said Wednesday.

In a briefing for New York City’s private security community, Rebecca Weiner, the NYPD’s director of intelligence analysis, warned that Inspire magazine is instructing would-be terrorists on how to make bombs and where to set them off, WCBS 880?s Marla Diamond reported.

The magazine lists targets in Washington, D.C.; Virginia; and New York — including the US Open, which begins Aug. 25 in Flushing Meadows, Queens.

My persona belief is that contained sporting events like The US Open are less susceptible to attack because they are contained and easier to defend. One would think these cowards would attack more open events like a marathon that is really impossible to control.

I wonder if any of these would be Al Qaeda terrorists have come through that secure Southern border?

Barack Hussein Obama Highest Approval Rating Among U.S. Muslims

Imagine that, Barack Hussein Obama gets highest approval rating among U.S. Muslims …

From the Politico comes a new Gallup poll that shows President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group. What is some what perplexing is the fact that American Jews give Obama high marks, although down from 2009, even as Obama has shown in the last 6 years that he is no friend of Israel. Although, not surprising at all that those with no religion also sing the praises of The One.

Barack Obama: “My Muslim Faith”

President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.

Mormons were the least approving religious group, with 18 percent of Mormons approving and 78 percent disapproving of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.

The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Chart via Gallup

Gallup: U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons Least – Relative rank order of religious groups stable throughout his presidency.

Seventy-two percent of U.S. Muslims approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing as president during the first six months of 2014, higher than any other U.S. religious group Gallup tracks. Mormons were least approving, at 18%. In general, majorities of those in non-Christian religions — including those who do not affiliate with any religion — approved of Obama, while less than a majority of those in the three major Christian religious groups did.

Missing and Kidnapped Jewish Teens Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar & Naftali Fraenkel (Dual Israeli-American Citizenship) Found Deceased in West Bank … Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Vows, “Hamas Will Pay”

The search for three missing teens in Israel has come to a sad, savage and bloody end …

19 year old Eyal Yifrah, 16 year old Gilad Shaar and 16 year old Naftali Fraenkel, who had dual Israeli-American citizenship, have been missing since June 12, 2014 have been found murdered in the West Bank north of Hebron. The three went missing while hitching home from a West Bank religious school. Israeli officials said at the time that one of the teens called a police emergency line said: “We’ve been kidnapped.” They were not heard from again.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing “Hamas will pay.”

The Israeli air force conducted strikes early Tuesday morning against 34 targets in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks against Israel’s southern communities. It was not immediately clear if the airstrikes, which targeted Hamas and Islamic Jihad assets in the strip and came after more than 20 rockets were fired into southern Israel over the past two days, resulted in any casualties, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Also on Tuesday, a Palestinian who Israel said was a member of Hamas was shot dead when he threw a grenade at forces carrying out an arrest raid in the West Bank. The man was the first casualty since the bodies were found.

Israel_3 teens killed

UPDATE I: The Times of Israel: What happened on the night of the kidnapping.

The three teens were waiting at Geva’ot Intersection, west of the settlement of Alon Shvut in the Etzion Bloc south of Jerusalem, soon after 10:15 p.m, looking to catch a ride heading west on Route 367 toward Beit Shemesh and from there to locations in central Israel where each of them lived.

Inside the Hyundai, Israel alleges, were Hamas terrorists Amer Abu Aysha and Marwan Kawasme.

Recognizing, too late, that the car was not an innocent Israeli vehicle, one of the teens called the police at 10:25 p.m. and whispered, “We’ve been kidnapped.” The call was transferred immediately to a senior officer, who continued to ask questions but received no reply. The call lasted for 2:09 minutes and was then cut off. The officer called the number eight more times, but received three busy signals and reached voicemail five times.

The kidnappers, apparently realizing that a call had been made, shot the three teens dead soon afterwards in the backseat of the car, military sources said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday night that they were murdered “in cold blood.”

UPDATE II: Israel Launches Airstrikes in Gaza Strip.

Israel said it launched a series of airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip early Tuesday. The military said the strikes hit 34 targets and injured four Palestinians across the Hamas-controlled territory.

It also said approximately six rockets hit Israel, including two that struck an area north of the city of Sderot. No damage or injuries have yet been reported.

Israel launches Gaza air strike after bodies of missing teens found.

Israel bombed dozens of sites in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, striking at Hamas after finding the bodies of three missing teenagers whose abduction and killing it blames on the Palestinian Islamist group.

Israel’s security cabinet, which held an emergency session late on Monday and was due to meet again on Tuesday, was split on the scope of any further action in the coastal enclave or in the occupied West Bank, officials said. The United States and regional power-broker Egypt urged restraint.

The military said aircraft attacked 34 sites, mostly belonging to Hamas, though its statement did not link the strikes to the abductions. Palestinian medics said two people were slightly wounded.

The military cited 18 Palestinian rockets launched against Israel from Gaza in the past two days.

The Islamist group has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the disappearance of the students as they hitchhiked near a Jewish settlement on June 12 nor in the cross-border rocket salvoes from Gaza.

Barack Obama Goes Golfing & Fund Raising as Iraq Implodes & All the Sacrifices of Americans Soldiers are Lost to ISIS Terrorists Thanks to Obama

Barack Obama, a complete and epic failure as Commander in Chief … Obama just doesn’t care about America, the military or Americans!

It was said from the outset by many intelligent and common sense thinking people that a premature exit from Iraq by the US military would result in the fall of the Iraq government to insurgents. However, Barack Obama was never one of those intelligent people either as a US Senator or as a president. In order to keep his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq, he sacrificed any victory and all of the sacrifices and lives of those brave American soldiers who fought, died and were injured. Now Iraq is in dire straights as Islamic jihadists take over the country.

In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his foreign policy brilliance stating, “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops.” Guess who was wrong, Epically Wrong! Has there ever been a worse Commander in Chief, ever? Iraq is in complete chaos. City after city are falling in Iraq as Iraq implodes.

Barack Obama stood by and watched Iraq fall to terrorists. There were multiple requests from Iraq for United States airstrikes against the insurgents in staging areas; however, they were turned down. What is up with our Commander in Chief refusing to help militarily in Iraq? Why is he emboldening terrorists? As Ralph Peters said on Fox News, the Jihadi conquest of Iraq the biggest Islamist victory since 12th century. Welcome to Obama’s Jihadi state.

“Patty Ann, this is President Obama’s real legacy. The creation of the first jihadi state in modern history stretching from central Syria to Central Iraq and now approaching Baghdad all because President Obama saw everything through a political lense. He’s gonna end the War in Iraq. He refused to negotiate seriously for residual US presence.

And now, just to put this in perspective for viewers, with this jihadi conquest of Mosul and jihadi forces approaching Baghdad, this is shaping up to be the biggest Arab jihadi victory since the 12th Century, 1187, and the fall of Crusader Jerusalem. This is momentous.

I can’t overstate the importance of Obama’s jihadi state in the heart of the Middle East.”

Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit

So what exactly is Obama trying to accomplish except to try and dispirit America? Barack Obama released 5 Taliban insurgents from GITMO for one military deserter, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Something that the American people are against, and the number will only continue to grow, the more and more the truth comes out. Obama has all but lost Iraq. All of the gains from brave American military soldiers all seem for naught. Sadly, many veterans feel their accomplishments were a waste. A note to the US military veterans of Iraq, what you did was not a waste, your actions were destroyed by Obama more hellbent on a political ideology than winning a war.

Instead, this joke of a president continues and doubles down on his failed foreign policy.Obama spoke on Friday from the White House with some of the most gutless talk from a US president ever. Instead of taking decisive action to help Iraq, Obama is going to continue to dither. UNREAL.

‘We will not be sending US troops back into combat but I had asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead. I do want to be clear though. This is not solely or even primarily a military challenge.”

Barack Obama stated on Friday, he would be reviewing options from his national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. Hmm, really? Looks like as Iraq falls to ISIS terrorists, Barack Obama is going to go golfing and fundraising. For the love of God, are you serious? After all, aren’t we glad that our US president has his priorities straight?

The president’s handlers scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just in case he wants to spend Father’s Day on the links.

Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home.

Barack Obama Administration Heard Terrorists Using State Dept. Phones During Benghazi Attacks, Eric Stahl U.S. Air Force Commander Speaks … But What Difference Does It Make

BUT WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, EH HILLARY?

The information keeps trickling in on Benghazi and what both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were very much aware of as the attacks occurred. The attacks in Benghazi on the US Consulate, that the Obama administration knowingly and falsely blamed on a video tape, where four Americans died including US Ambassador Chris Stevens took place on September 11, 2012. Now we learn that the Obama administration heard terrorists using US State Department phones the night of the attack. UNREAL!

Interview with Fox News and Bret Baier, ‘Special Report’.

Bret Baier: Bottom line, in the alert status you were in, conceivable if they called early enough you could have evaced those people from Benghazi?

Eric Stahl: Absolutely! If they would have called we could have been down there in 3 hours, basically … We could have gone down there and got them easily.

MUST WATCH VIDEO …

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

More from The LID:

Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

A separate U.S. official, one with intimate details of the bloody events of that night, confirmed the major’s assertion. The second source, who requested anonymity to discuss classified data, told Fox News he had personally read the intelligence reports at the time that contained references to calls by terrorists – using State Department cell phones captured at the consulate during the battle – to their terrorist leaders. The second source also confirmed that the security teams on the ground received this intelligence in real time.

Major Stahl was never interviewed by the Accountability Review Board, the investigative panel convened, pursuant to statute, by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as the official body reviewing all the circumstances surrounding the attacks and their aftermath. Many lawmakers and independent experts have criticized the thoroughness of the ARB, which also never interviewed Clinton nor the under secretary of State for management, Patrick Kennedy, a key figure in the decisions about security at the consulate in the period preceding the attack there.
