UNREAL … SO THE US IS NOT AT WAR WITH ISIS, GUESS WHAT JOHN KERRY, ISIS IS AT WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES!!!
One day after President Barack Obama spoke to the nation and told us about the threat of ISIS and his strategy to deal with them, his Secretary of State John Kerry says we are not at war with ISIS. Unbelievable. After the tough talk of Obama saying, “if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven,” it is followed up of the weakness of Kerry refusing to say we are at war with ISIS. Kerry stated, that’s the wrong terminology. It is not a war, it is a major counter-terrorism operation. WHAT!!! The Obama administration is more worried about semantics than they are victory. John Kerry went on to say, there is “No need for “war fever” in ISIS operations. These are the wrong people, at the wrong time to be in charge.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration’s strategy includes “many different things that one doesn’t think of normally in context of war.”
“What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation,” Kerry told CNN’s Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “It’s going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it’s a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts.”
Kerry made a distinction between ISIS and terror groups operating in Somalia and Yemen.
Doesn’t this sound an awful lot like Obama changing the “Global war on terror” to ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’. How has that worked out for us America? Political Correctness kills.
As the famous line goes: Truth is the first casualty of war.
Calling it something else doesn’t change even that.
Especially that. Perhaps Secretary Kerry should consider the words of General Sherman:
“War is cruelty, you cannot refine it.”
Or redefine it
HEY MR. PRESIDENT … YOU DO REALIZE THAT THE “I” IN ISIS OR ISIL AS YOU LIKE TO SAY STANDS FOR “ISLAM,” RIGHT?
Barack Obama, the Apologist in Chief was at it again last night with his “tin-horn” speech on the ISIS threat. Obama was finally able to muster up the “cojones” to call ISIS a terrorist group, but he just could not find it in himself to say they were Islamic. UNREAL. So ISIS is not Islamic because Obama says so and because they kill Muslims? HUH? Mr. President, you might want to read the Quran and that religion of Peace.
“ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the murder of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”
Its Been 13 Years Since September 11, 2001 … Have You Forgotten? We Have Not, We Will Always Remember Those We Lost, The Heroes & the Evil that Attacked Us and Continues To
Today is the 13th anniversary since that fateful Fall day on September 11, 2001 where the United States of America changed forever … Please Don’t Ever Forget.
Today, bells toll and a moment of silence commemorate the exact times that the planes piloted by Islamic terrorists crashed into both towers the World Trade Center in New York City, into the Pentagon in Washington, DC and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The bells toll to remember the times that both towers fell in NYC and thousands of innocent people were killed who’s only crime was going to work and the heroes that rushed into the buildings and never came home.
Have you forgotten that September morning? In many ways it seems that many have. That is until we are attacked again, like in Benghazi, Libya September 11, 2012. A terror attacked passed off as being blamed on a anti- Islamic video tape by our government which we pretty much know is a lie. Have you forgotten? It seems like a country once again did until suddenly they received a wake up call from a jayvee terrorist group known as ISIS. There will always be those who wish to destroy America simple because, we are America. God bless all those who lost their lives and to the families, loved ones, friends and those who have been personally affected by the terror acts of 9-11. Its been 13 years, I miss you.
However, today is meant to honor the memories and the lives of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the heroes that inspired a nation. It has been 13 years to the day of that fateful September morning in 2001 where in an instant our lives and world changed forever. Nearly 3000 people lost their lives in NYC at the World Trade Center, in Washington, DC as flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, PA where heroes aboard Flight 93 took matters into their hands and said “NO to terrorism”. DO YOU REMEMBER? Please I beg you, NEVER FORGET.
I understand the reason why solemn services are held and the bells toll to remember the times in which these horrific terror acts were perpetrated on the United States, but do not ever forget the images, the sounds and the smells of what actually took place. It should be carved into the minds and souls of all Americans. If it is not, if we forget, we will be destined to repeat history.

Greta Van Susteren Says the Obama White House Pressured Her to Get FOX News Reporter to Back Down on Benghazi Investigation
More dirty Chicago-style politics and shredding of the First Amendment by the Obama Administration …
FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren admitted Friday in “Off the Record” that she was called by the Obama White House and pressured to get Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (VIDEO) to back down on her Benghazi investigation. So much for The US Constitution, the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. Of course we know the rest of the lapdog media was more than willing to oblige Obama.
“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information … A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”
Bret Baier Fox News Exclusive – ’13 Hours in Benghazi’: Top CIA Officer in Benghazi Delayed Response to Terrorist Attack … “I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today.”
THEY WERE TOLD TO STAND DOWN ...VIDEO, WHAT VIDEO?
IN A MUST SEE INTERVIEW, their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Ahead of the book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” comes the following interview with Fox News Special Report Brett Baier and the security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto, Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen.
A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night at 10 p.m. (EDT).
Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”
Now, looking back, the security team said they believed that if they had not been delayed for nearly half an hour, or if the air support had come, things might have turned out differently.
“Ambassador Stevens and Sean [Smith], yeah, they would still be alive, my gut is yes,” Paronto said. Tiegen concurred.
“I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today,” he added.

VIDEO Shows ISIS Beheading Another American Journalist Hostage, This Time Steven Sotloff … A “Second Message to America” to Halt Airstrikes in Iraq … Is UK Aid Worker David Cawthorne Haines Next?
Hmm, at what point will the MSM stop carrying the water and making excuses for Barack Obama and demand he do something?
The brutal, vicious and heinous actions of ISIS continues, as a VIDEO today showed yet another beheading of an American journalist. Just 13 days after the murderous beheading of James Foley, ISIS has done it again. This time they have beheaded Steven Sotloff in an act of barbarism. Steven Sotloff was a 31 year old freelance journalist from Florida who was kidnapped in Syria in August 2013. The masked murderer in the VIDEO actually called out Obama saying, “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State … So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.” And Barack Hussein Obama is no where to be found. I guess he is too busy dithering and being too cautious trying to figure out what his strategy is. Instead the feckless and clueless Obama would have you believe that this isn’t that bad and “The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media.” WHAT!!!
The Islamic State militant group released a video on Tuesday purporting to show the beheading of a second American hostage, journalist Steven Sotloff, raising the stakes in its confrontation with Washington over U.S. air strikes on its insurgents in Iraq.
“I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and in Amerli, Zumar and the Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings,” the masked man said in the video, addressing U.S. President Barack Obama.
“So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.”
In the video, Sotloff describes himself as “paying the price” with his life for the U.S. intervention in Iraq.
As the American Spectator asks, “How many more Americans does ISIS have to behead before President Obama develops a strategy on ISIS?”
London: UK prime minister David Cameron has condemned the killing of another journalist by Islamic State extremists as “a despicable and barbaric murder”.
A video of the latest killing reported to be US journalist Steven Sotloff emerged on Tuesday afternoon UK-time, featuring the same militant who killed James Foley, named in the UK media as British jihadist Adbel-Majed Abdel Bary, dubbed ‘Jihadi John’.
According to intelligence group SITE, the killer also threatened another captive, thought to be Briton David Cawthorne Haines.
The Washington Post reported that Mr Haines was shown in the video in the same kneeling position and wearing the same orange jumpsuit as Sotloff and Foley before him.
Mr Haines, was abducted in March 2013 near the Atmeh refugee camp adjoining the Turkish border in the northern Syrian province of Idlib, aid workers who have been involved in efforts to secure his release told the Post.
UPDATE II: Yawn, The U.S. State Department says it is “sickened” by a video that purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff. Sorry, but we have heard this before. How about some action rather than reading the same script with replace “innocent person’s name”.
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia Warned the West Will be the Next Target of ISIS Jihadists Unless there is “Rapid” Action
Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah says the West will be next unless ISIS is dealt with quickly …
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warns the West of ISIS stating, “If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month.” King Abdullah warned that ISIS jihadists must be dealt with quickly, saying a lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the terrorist phenomenon. Of course I would ask two question. One, what has King Abdullah and Saudi Arabia done to quell ISIS or terrorists and two, take rapid action, doesn’t King Abdullah realize that in Obama, he is talking to a ditherer?
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.
“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.
“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.
The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions.
Lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said.
“You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street,” he said, condemning the “cruelty” of such acts.
“It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed’.”

Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says President Obama ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS
Barack Obama, the Ditherer in Chief …
This Sunday on Meet the Press, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein called Barack Obama a ditherer in dealing with ISIS. Host Andra Mitchell asked, “The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? The Democrat Senator from California Feinstein’s exact response was, “I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious.” In other words, a ditherer.
- to be uncertain or indecisive
- state of indecision
- to act irresolutely; vacillate.
- To be nervously irresolute in acting or doing
ditherer – noun: a person who dawdles or is indecisive, pictorial definition, see Barack Obama.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? Doesn’t that project weakness from the White House?
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I mean, I know what you want me to say. But I’m not going to say it in that sense. I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious. I do know that the military, I know that the State Department, I know that others have been putting plans together.
And so hopefully, those plans will coalesce into a strategy that can encourage that coalition from Arab nations, Jordan’s at jeopardy, Lebanon’s at jeopardy, the UAA and other countries are in jeopardy. So there is good reason for people to come together now and begin to approach this as a very real threat, that it in fact is.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The president back in January told The New Yorker magazine, David Remnick, that ISIS is the JV team. That was clearly wrong.
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I think it’s wrong too. I think it’s a major varsity team. And if you want to use those kinds of monikers. But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness. I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.
And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure– a heavy equipment, heave explosives, the ability to move quickly, I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened. So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous. And they’ll kill with abandon

Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera Says Federal Government Releasing Murderers Into U.S. & Morale is at an All-Time Low
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, a Community agitator?
Is it any surprise that US Border agent’s morale is at an all-time low when agents are not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do and they see on a daily basis that they have to let admitted gang members and murderers into the United States per the federal government? What has become of this country? Honestly, what is the point of having immigration laws, border agents and a border if we are not going to uphold them? This is what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum.
A Border Patrol agent claims that the federal government is allowing murderers from Central America to be released into the U.S.
Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, agent Chris Cabrera stated that these teenage gang members crossing the border are being released to family members in the U.S.
“If they have family in the United States, they’ll release them to the family, even if they’re admitted gang members,” Cabrera explained to Fox News. “We’ve had a couple that had admitted to murders in their home country. They were 17 years old, 16 years old, and the United States government thought it fit to release them to their parents here in the United States.
“Even if he’s a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country, we release them into our country.”
Unhinged Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Chases Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) Across House Chamber After He Called Her Out … “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then.”
Nance Pelosi takes crossing the aisle to the extreme …
Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) certainly did hit a nerve to say the least when he addressed the House regarding the debate on the border funding bill Friday night. Marino called out former Speaker of the House Nanncy Pelosi why when Democrats had control of the House, Senate and White House they did nothing about the border issue, but now with to make it a political issue. Needless to say, San Fran Nan then did something she never does, she came across the aisle. However, it was to confront Marino. After Pelosi said something to Marino, he responded, “It’s true, madam leader, I did the research on it,” Marino said. “You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.” File this one under, The truth hurts, don’t it.
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed. They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
The House then voted to approve the $694 million border supplemental, 223-189.
In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night.
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marino’s assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental “because apparently I hit the right nerve.”
Powerline opines, “Before this morning, I regret to say, I was unfamiliar with Tom Marino. Today Marino is my hero.” I have to second that as well!
According to Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George, “Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act – and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
George added that “Pelosi accepted the Congressman’s apology.”
UPDATE II: Marino’s chief of staff, Bill Tighe, stressed that Marino did not apologize to Pelosi, and will not apologize.
It would appear that Rep. Marino did not apologize to Pelosi and San Fran Nan had more to say than just the “Dream Act”. Marino took to twitter and tweeted that Nancy Pelosi called me an “insignificant person”.
“[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for. She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor,” Tighe wrote in an email. “Her staff’s comment in your story about her accepting his apology in simply not true.”
Later, Marino took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.
Rep. Tom Marino – @RepTomMarino
