Barack Obama Sends 250 More Special Forces to Syria to Fight ISIS Does He Even Have a Plan?

HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?

What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.

President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.

The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.

Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.

“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.

“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

Four Americans Confirmed Killed in Brussels Terrorist Attacks (Justin & Stephanie Shults, Alexander Pinczowski and his Sister, Sascha)

AFTER AMERICANS DIED AND WERE HEINOUSLY KILLED IN A TERROR BOMB ATTACK IN BRUSSELS, BARACK OBAMA ENJOYED HIM SELF AT A BASEBALL GAME IN CUBA AND DANCING IN ARGENTINA.

Sadly, two more Americans have been confirmed to have been killed in the Brussels bombing terror attack in Brussels, Belgium. The two have been identified as a married couple, Justin and Stephanie Shults. They were killed in the bombings at Brussels’ Zaventem Airport. Earlier Sunday, the White House said that President Barack Obama telephoned the parents of an American couple identified as among the dead in last week’s attacks. What, Obama didn’t have a more pressing golf game to attend? Justin Shults was originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and his wife, Stephanie, was a native of Lexington, Kentucky. They graduated together from Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management. Previously, Alexander Pinczowski and his sister, Sascha, were killed at Brussels airport.

Justin and Stephanie Shults

Four Americans are confirmed to have been killed in last week’s terror attacks in Brussels, the State Department said late Sunday.

A State Department official confirmed the deaths of two additional U.S. citizens in a brief statement, but declined to identify them. The statement expressed “our deepest condolences” to those who had lost loved ones. The department initially said Friday that two Americans had died in the attacks.

Over the weekend, married couple Justin and Stephanie Shults were confirmed to have been killed in the bombings at Brussels’ Zaventem Airport. A family member told the Associated Press they were dropping Stephanie’s mother off at the airport and were watching her walk through security when the bombs went off.

President Barack Obama telephoned the couple’s parents earlier Sunday. The White House said Obama offered his condolences and praised Justin and Stephanie Shults as epitomizing all that was good about America.

On Friday, U.S. officials told Fox News that the wife of an Air Force lieutenant colonel had been killed in the airport attack. The unidentified serviceman and four other members of his family were injured in the blast.

Really, so now Obama decides to act like a president and offer his condolences? Sorry, but Obama should never and I repeat never have attended a baseball game in Cuba and then danced the night away in Argentina as the ISIS terror attacks ripped through Brussels and murdered Americans. But what would you expect from a president who cares more about himself than We the People. But of course ISIS doesn’t pose a threat. Who is the real JV?

American Teen,19 Year Old Mason Wells Survives Attack in Brussels … His Third Brush With Terrorism

TALK ABOUT HAVING 9 LIVES, OR AT LEAST THREE …

19 year old Mason Wells is either lucky or a lightening rod for trouble. The teenager has actually survived three brushes with terrorism.

An American injured in the Brussels terror attacks has already been impacted previous terror attacks in Boston and Paris, his family said.

Mason Wells, 19, was injured in the bombing at the Brussels airport along with two other American Mormon missionaries who had gone to help check in other missionaries who were traveling to the U.S.

Wells suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, shrapnel injures, as well as second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing, his father Chad Wells told ABC News.

The teen missionary had previously been impacted by other terror attacks in Paris and Boston.

“This is his third terrorist attack,” Chad Wells said, noting he was with his son just a block from the Boston Marathon bombing.

“This is the third time that sadly in our society that we have a connection to a bomb blast,” Wells told ABC News. “We live in a dangerous world and not everyone is kind and loving.”

Lib Piers Morgan Says, When it comes to terror, isn’t it time we started listening seriously to Trump? (VIDEO)

WOW, ARE THOSE ON THE LEFT AGREEING WITH THE DONALD?

From The Daily Mail comes the following where liberal Piers Morgan is now asking himself, is Donald Trump wrong on terrorism? As reported at the Daily Caller, Morgan is really coming around to the idea of a Trump’s candidacy: “Hate Donald Trump all you like, but at least he seems to recognize the magnitude of the threat and at least he has firm proposals for how to try to defeat it.”

I spoke to Trump for 40 minutes. He was, as you’d expect, bombastic, defiant and self-congratulatory. Why wouldn’t he be? He’s ripped up every political rulebook to take this presidential race by storm, a scenario that is hardly going to deflate the ego of New York’s most cock-sure billionaire tycoon.

But he also spoke in more detail about his plans to combat ISIS and I found myself nodding more than I expected.

Trump told me countries must tighten their borders in light of these terror attacks, especially to anyone related to an ISIS fighter in Syria.

Is he so wrong?

He told me he wants law-abiding Muslims to root out the extremists in their midst, expressing his bafflement and anger that someone like Abdeslam was able to hide for so long in the very part of Brussels he had previously lived.

Is he so wrong?

He told me America must make it far harder for illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. and thinks European countries should follow suit.

Is he so wrong?

He told me he believes there are now areas of many major European cities which have become poisonous breeding grounds for radicalized Islamic terror.

Is he so wrong?

I didn’t feel I was talking to a lunatic, as many seem to view Trump.

I saw a guy, a non-politician unfettered by PC language restraints, who is genuinely furious at the devastation which ISIS is wreaking, and seriously concerned for the security of his fellow Americans and indeed, the citizens of Europe.

(Remember, Trump’s from New York and felt the horror of 9/11 very personally and very deeply like all New Yorkers.)

His plans for tackling this extraordinarily dangerous threat to the world have been widely condemned as ‘bigoted’ and ‘racist’.

But although I publicly criticised him for the Muslim short-term ban suggestion, I’ve known Trump for ten years and I don’t believe he’s a racist.

I think he’s someone who has spent his life responding to metaphorical punches on his nose by punching even harder back.

And right now, he firmly believes that ISIS will murder countless more Americans and Europeans if somebody somewhere doesn’t stand up and punch them hard in the face.

Someone prepared to stop spewing politically-correct niceties after these attacks, hoping nobody gets offended, and actually DO something.

Let’s be honest with ourselves, right now ISIS is winning this war and will continuing committing utter carnage on our streets on an ever graver and more barbaric scale until they are stopped.

I don’t have the answers to how to do that.

But I don’t hear any good ideas coming from any world leaders at the moment either, and it’s their highly paid jobs to work it out.

Instead, I see a global paralysis driven by fear, confusion and woeful lack of leadership.

And it will only get worse.

Donald Trump predicted Brussels … Prior to terror attack, its like living in a hell hole

Hate Donald Trump all you like, but at least he seems to recognise the magnitude of the threat and at least he has firm proposals for how to try to defeat it.

They may not win him the Politically Correct Pontificator of the Year award. But how many more scenes like this morning’s appalling images from Brussels are we going to tolerate before we try a non-PC option to beat these disgusting excuses for human beings?

At the end of our interview, I asked Donald Trump to send a message to the large majority of non-violent, decent Muslims who are as disgusted by these attacks as the rest of us.

‘I have great respect for Muslims,’ he said, ‘I have many friends that are Muslims. I’m just saying that there is something with a radicalized portion that is very, very bad and very dangerous. I would say this, to the Muslims, when they see trouble, they have to report it, they’re not reporting it, they’re absolutely not reporting it and that’s a big problem.’

Is he so wrong?

Terror Attack in Brussels, Belgium … Bomb Explosions at the Zaventem Airport and Maalbeck Metro, At Least 28 People Dead (VIDEO)

BREAKING NEWSTwo bomb blasts tore through the departures area of Zaventem airport shortly after 08:00 local time (07:00 GMT).

Terrorist bomb explosions have taken place at the Zaventem Airport and at the Brussels metro. It is suspected that the explosion at the airport was a result of a suicide bomber. Also, another bomb went off a sort time later at the Maalbeck metro station.  The AP is reporting that at least 28 people are dead and many more injured.

The Belgian Prime Minister, Charles Michel said speaking after the attacks.“Our fears have become reality.” 

Many people have been killed or seriously injured in terrorist attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station, Belgium’s PM says.

Two explosions hit Zaventem airport at about 07:00 GMT, and another struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later.

The government has not confirmed casualty numbers. Brussels transport officials say 15 died at Maelbeek and media say up to 13 died at the airport.

Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level.

UPDATE I: Explosions rock Brussels airport, subway; 28 reported dead.

Explosions, at least one likely caused by a suicide bomber, rocked the Brussels airport and subway system Tuesday, prompting a lockdown of the Belgian capital and heightened security across Europe. At least 28 people were reported dead.

A spokesman for the Brussels Metro said 15 people were killed and 55 injured in an explosion on a train, and Belgian media reported at least 13 dead in two explosions at the airport, with many others injured.

Belgium raised its terror alert to the highest level, diverting planes and trains and ordering people to stay where they were. Airports across Europe immediately tightened security.

“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”

European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks, and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said there was no immediate evidence linking key Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam to them. After his arrest Friday, Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and was planning new attacks.

Belgian media reported that 13 people were killed at the airport, where two explosions splattered blood across the departure lounge and collapsed the ceiling. The explosions hit during the busy morning rush. Smoke was seen billowing out of the terminal.

UPDATE II: Brussels Airport and Metro Explosions.

Authorities confirmed an explosion at Maalbeck metro station killed 15 people and injured 55 others.

At least 1 fatality ocurred at the airport, federal police told NBC News. Health Minister Maggie de Block told a journalist with the Belga News Agency that the explosions at the airport killed at least 11 people and wounded 81. NBC News was not immediately able to confirm the report.

All trains, planes, trams and buses were halted in Brussels. The main Midi train station was evacuated.

Sunita Van Heers had come to the train station after seeing the metro was on lockdown. Then police evacuated the station.

“Everybody started panicking, crying, not knowing what was happening,” she said, describing how police ordered people away from the station. “It’s scary.”

UPDATE III: Well Its about time Western Europe Admits they are at War.

“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”

European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks, and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said there was no immediate evidence linking key Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam to them. After his arrest Friday, Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and was planning new attacks.

Pentagon Orders Commanders to Prioritize Climate Change in all Military Actions

ITS TOO BAD THIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF DID NOT TAKE TERRORISM AS SERIOUS …

The Washington Times is reporting that the Pentagon is ordering its top commanders to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. Guess who they get their directive from? The directive, “Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience,” is in line with President Obama’s view that global warming is the country’s foremost national security threat. This fool cannot be replaced soon enough before he does any more damage to this country. Let’s hope it is not permanent.

Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is the JV, but global warming is the United States greatest national security threat. Lord help us.

Obama_Islam will dominate the world

The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.

A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”

To four-star generals and admirals, among them the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight the nation’s wars, the directive tells them: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.”

19 Year Old Sevdet Besim Charged with Planning to Target Police with Explosive Kangaroo in Melbourne, Australia

HE DID WHAT MATE …

19 year old Sevdet Ramadan Besim has been charged with plotting to target police  with a kangaroo packed with explosives in an ISIS terror attack in Melbourne, Australia. According to prosecutors, the teenager discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with the ISIS symbol and setting it loose on police. Prosecutors also accuse Besim of communicating with a teenager overseas, as well as planning to run over and behead a police officer on Anzac Day.

VIDEO – NBC News

A Melbourne teenager allegedly discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with an Islamic State symbol and setting it loose on police officers.

Sevdet Ramadan Besim, 19, of Hallam, is accused of plotting an Anzac Day terror attack in Melbourne that would have included a beheading.

He was committed to trial in the Supreme Court on Thursday after pleading not guilty to four charges.

In a prosecution summary against Mr Besim tendered to court, police allege the pair spoke on March 16 last year, during which they discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives and letting it loose on police.

“The conversation continues with Besim detailing what he did that day and they have a general discussion around animals and wildlife in Australia, including a suggestion that a kangaroo could be packed with C4 explosive, painted with the IS symbol and let loose on police officers,” the summary says.

Folk Singer James Twyman Travels to Syria and Hopes Peace Concert for ISIS Will Win Over Terror Group

HMM, WHY DO I THINK THAT ISIS WON’T BE AS RECEPTIVE?

Despite warning from the State Department, folk singer James Twyman, of Portland, Oregon, plans to travel to Syria next week and perform a concert for ISIS. Twyman says that he believes he can soften the hearts of these fundamental Islamists who make a living out of beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children and killing their fellow Muslims. We may want to add liberal, moonbat folk singers to the list as well.

Oh my, how do we think this is going to end? Can you say, no well. The only think that might prevent this misguided individual from having his head cut off by ISIS is the fact that they might be laughing so hard. To think that Twyman believe “kumbaya” songs will soften these savages, might be just as insane as the ideology of ISIS itself.

James Twyman: Be the Change

An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger.

James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told FoxNews.com he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children.

“It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world sing and pray for peace at the same time. “When people come together and focus on something in a positive way…there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”

The author and self-styled “Peace Troubadour” has put traditional prayers from various faiths to song. Twyman performed in Baghdad in the late 1990s after Operation Desert Storm; in Bosnia and Croatia during the Balkan War in 1995 and has even performed previously in Syria to spread his message of peace through song.

Twyman leaves Jan. 20, and plans to stop in Italy before heading to Israel. From there, he will then cross over the northern border shared with Syria to a small Druze village.

While that village, Majdal Shams, is occupied by Israel, Twyman said he has contacts there trying to set up a venue in ISIS-controlled territory. Either way, the show is set for Jan. 31.

We wish him well, but why do I fell this might be the last concert that this folk singer will ever be performing? It would appear that JWF thinks this might be his farewell tour as well.

Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett Ambushed by 30 Year Old Edward Archer … Update: Suspect Confessed He Did it in the Name of Islam

THANK GOD, NOT ALLAH THAT POLICE OFFICER JESSEE HARTNETT IS ALIVE …

In what can only be described as a heinous and vile act of cowardice, Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett is lucky to be alive after he was ambushed at shot numerous times at point-blank range. The suspect, 33 year old Edward Archer, fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night. According to reports, the suspect confessed and stated he shot the officer in the name of Islam.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross  described the attack as an execution attempt.

I just have to tell you, when you look at the video–we have video that captured all of this–it’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. This guy tried to execute the police officer. It’s amazing he’s alive,” Ross said at a press conference Friday morning.

Jesse Hartnett_ambused

Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer, identified as 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired nearly a dozen shots through the driver’s side of the car.

“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Officer Hartnett was heard yelling on police radio.

Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”

UPDATE I: Suspect Used Stolen Police gun, and claims allegiance to ISIS.

The alleged radical Islamic gunman accused of shooting a Philadelphia cop used a stolen police gun in the attempted “assassination” and pledged allegiance to ISIS as he confessed to the harrowing ambush, officials said.

Suspected shooter Edward Archer fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night, police said. The five-year force veteran was hit three times and suffered a broken arm and nerve damage — but was still able to chase after his assailant and fire at the fleeing gunman.

Archer, who was shot three times by the cop he targeted, was taken into custody shortly after the attack and confessed to the ambush, police said at a Friday press conference.

“He stated that he pledges his allegiance to Islamic State. He praises Allah, and that was the reason he was called to do this,” said Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark.

CNN Poll: More Americans Say Terrorists are Winning than Ever Before

According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, Americans have lost confidence in the Obama administration to stop a terrorist attack and defeat ISIS. Even 59% of Democrats are expressing concern in how the Obama administration is conducting the war on terror. Way to fundamentally transform America Barack!

Obama_poll CNN terror

Americans are more likely to say that terrorists are winning the war against the United States than they have been at any point since the September 11 attacks, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

The public is broadly unhappy with the nation’s progress, with nearly three-quarters of Americans saying they are not satisfied with how the war on terror is proceeding. That figure, following terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, this fall, is well above the previous high of 61% who said they were dissatisfied in August 2007.

While less than half of Americans say the terrorists are winning, the current 40% who do believe that is 17 points above the previous high of 23% reached in August 2005. Another 40% say neither side has an advantage, and just 18% say today that the U.S. and its allies have the upper hand — 10 points off the previous low for that measure, reached in January 2007.

Majority dissatisfaction with the war on terrorism crosses party lines, with even a majority of Democrats, 59%, expressing unease with the case prosecuted by the Obama White House. Seventy-nine percent of independents and 86% of Republicans also say they are dissatisfied with how it has fared.

But of course, Barack Obama is the most admired man in America for 2015. Which is the reason why this may be the most ignorant and useless poll ever.
