Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicts John Kerry, Says 2014 Deadliest Year for Terror Ever Recorded
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, WHO FEELS SAFE FROM TERRORISM WITH THE JV IN THE WHITE HOUSE?
Less than 24 hours after Secretary of State John Kerry told a Foreign Affairs and State Department budget hearing that, “we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicted Kerry in a major way. It turns out according to Director Clapper that we are not safer than any time in the last century. As it turns out, 2014 was the deadliest year for terror, EVER!!!
“When the final accounting is done. 2014 will be the most lethal year in global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled. About half of all attacks including fatalities in 2014 occurred in just three countries, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
Fox News Martha MacCallum could only muster the following in stunned bewilderment, “I guess John Kerry did not get that message.”
Secretary of State John Kerry: Despite ISIS, “We Are Actually Living In A Period Of Less Daily Threat To Americans”
OK AMERICA, WHO HONESTLY BELIEVES THE FOLLOWING WORDS FROM JOHN “FRAUD” KERRY …
UNREAL … Barack Obama’s Secretary of State said the following yesterday, “Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are”. The partisan hack politician went on to say, we have had “less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century.” HUH, GO FIGURE. So in 1915 we had more terrorist threats and deaths than in 2015? Who feels safer today than they did 6 or 7 years ago? That’s it America, don’t believe your lying eyes, believe John Kerry.
What page from Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ does this come from … “If you lie to the people long enough, it because the truth. Especially with a complicit liberal propaganda media.
Maybe Kerry should have said, dating back to the time when President Jimmy Carter unleashed the radical Islam with the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979?
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: And frankly – and last thing, this is counterintuitive but it’s true: Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century. And so even the concept of state war has changed in many people’s minds, and we’re seeing now more asymmetrical kinds of struggles.
AMERICA, IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF?
Former Secretary of State, former US Senator of New York and former First Lady Hillary Clinton says that “Smart power” also includes “showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand … empathize with their perspective and point of view.” What Hillary Clinton calls smart power, others who actually like America and its freedoms and liberties call ignorant, foolish and naive utopian liberal BS. It is no wonder that Hillary accomplished nothing as Secretary of State except get frequent flier miles.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that women should play larger roles in conflict resolution and military efforts around the globe and that “smart power” includes empathizing and showing respect, even for one’s enemies, as the United States confronts a host of challenges on the world stage.
Lt. Col. Oliver North appeared ‘On the Record’ with Greta Van Susteran said oh Hillary’s comments, “those words coming out of some one who intends to be commander and chief are not just naive and utopian, it’s irrational.” As Col. North pointed out when Greta tried to make excuses for Hillary about being taken out of context, Hillary was looking down at her notes and reading, not making an off the cuff comment. This is the underlying belief of progressives and liberals, we must understand why and empathize with our enemies because we must be to blame. Case in point, Obama apology tour when he first became president.
“This is what we call smart power,” Clinton said to a small audience at Georgetown. “Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.
So are we supposed to respect and empathize with ISIS, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood and maybe Boko Haram? How about the terrorists who attacked the Libyan consulate in Benghazi and murdered Ambassador Stevens? How about those that would chop off the heads of innocents? Maybe Hillary would like to explain herself? But in the end, what difference would it make?
Barack Obama, a foreign policy failure …
Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney appeared on ‘The Kelly Files’ to discuss their recent editorial in the Wall Street Journal. Megyn Kelly asked, “do you think that President Obama is dangerous?” Liz Cheney responded, “Yes, there is no question” Obama is a dangerous president when you look at the past six years.
Megyn Kelly: Do you think that President Obama is dangerous?
Liz Cheney: Yes… I think there is no question. I think he is unique in terms of a president who is sitting in the Oval Office who has made very clear his desire is to weaken the nation. And, whether you say it is his intent, whether you say it’s naivete you can now look at the result of the policy the last six and a half years and you got the black-clad terrorists of ISIS now taking over city after city after city in Iraq.
Wall Street Journal Editorial by Dick and Liz Cheney – ‘The Collapsing Obama Doctrine’:
As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014). “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013). “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011)
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.
The fall of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul and Tel Afar, and the establishment of terrorist safe havens across a large swath of the Arab world, present a strategic threat to the security of the United States. Mr. Obama’s actions—before and after ISIS’s recent advances in Iraq—have the effect of increasing that threat.

Muslim parent in Dearborn, MI Upset Over School Flyer Promoting Easter Egg Hunt, But Some how Have No Issue With Muslims Beheadings, Honor Killings, Or Killing Women & Babies
Honestly, I really don’t give a crap anymore what happens to offend Muslims or makes them feel uncomfortable … I am sick and tired of all the claims of people being offended about everything … GET OVER IT!!!
Some Muslim parents are upset that the public schools in Dearborn, Michigan handed out flyers to their children advertising an Easter egg hunt at the Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church. Seriously, this is what offends a Muslim parent? You know what offends me, a religion that is hell-bent of killing infidels of all other religions. I am offended when so-called moderate Muslims would sit back and say nothing when other Muslims are beheading individuals, shooting Christian babies, constant killing of Christians, and Muslims killing Christan women. Hell, you think they might be offended by a good old-fashioned Muslim honor killing. NOPE! Isn’t it a shame that we don’t hear these same rants of feeling offended by actions of people of their own religion? But then again, Islam is a religion of Peace, as we are told. Sorry, Islam is a religion of INTOLERANCE!
Folks, at some point we have to start restoring America, or lose it forever.
Some Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.
A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.
“It really bothered my two kids,” said parent Majed Moughni, who is Muslim and has two children, ages 7 and 9, in Dearborn elementary schools. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’ ”
I have to echo the PJ Tatler and agree with their call of BS on the Muslim kids so-called claim of feeling “uncomfortable”.
I am calling BS on that parent. If his kid said that, my name is Mohammed. Besides, the flyer isn’t telling anyone to “go to church.” It’s inviting kids over to have some fun. And how can these secular symbols of Easter be defined as “religious”? Maybe the Muslims think that Christians worship bunny rabbits.
I must have missed the part in the Bible where there was a secular Easter Egg hunt before Jesus Christ was crucified and his resurrection.
UPDATE I: A Message to offended Muslims.
BREAKING: Reuters is reporting that a United States citizen working at the international school in Benghazi, Libya has been shot and killed. FOX News is reporting that medical and security sources told Reuters that the man was targeted by gunmen as he was exercising. No one has yet taken responsibility for the cowardly act.
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday.
The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said.
After the murders of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, including the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens has literally gone unpunished by the Obama administration, terrorists in Benghazi must think it is open season on Americans. There has been no comment yet from the Obama administration as to whether an anti-Muslim tape was responsible for the shooting.
This is what happens when you do not respond to terrorist acts in kind. How have the deaths of Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Amb. Chris Stevens not been investigated and justice not been served?

The AP is reporting that an Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood and has ordered its assets confiscated. This ruling bans the Muslim Brotherhood from carrying out activities inside the country. Prior to the 2011 fall of Hosni Mubarak, the Brotherhood had been outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of Mubarak, the terror group was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections.
These two probably have a lot of explaining to do regarding the Arab Spring
An Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
Egypt state TV said the court issued its ruling on Monday.
The Brotherhood was outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, it was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.
“The court bans the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood organization and its non-governmental organization and all the activities that it participates in and any organization derived from it,” judge Mohammed al-Sayed said in a statement on Monday, according to Reuters.
The court also ordered the Muslim Brotherhood’s assets confiscated.
Are You Kidding Me … Senator John McCain (R-AZ) Says Shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ the Same as Christians Shouting ‘Thank God!’
NO HE DIDN’T … This is what political correctness gets you, a RINO politician making a comparison as absurd as it gets … Sure it is Senator McCain and Islam is a religion of peace as well.
As reported at Breitbart, this morning on ‘Fox & Friends’ Senator John McCain (R-AZ) got indignant when suggested Fox News host Brian Kilmeade said he had a problem with Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition. McRINO actually said the following, that shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ was the same as Christians shouting ‘Thank God!’ WOW, just WOW. Suddenly, everyone is a “moderate” Muslim to McCain. The Syrian freedom fighters, the Muslim Brotherhood, all good moderate Muslims. Exactly whose side is this guy on?
OK you senile SOB, how dare you. This fossil needs to be sent packing. A note to the moron senator from Arizona, when Christians thank God it is in thanks to Our Creator, not an affirmation to murder and martyrdom in the name of Allah. Good grief, you are an evil, demented little man.
“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’” He added, “That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.” McCain provided no evidence to suggest that Syrian opposition groups are moderate, as opposed to the wide swath of evidence suggesting that the opposition is heavily infested with al Qaeda.
Just curious when was the last time you heard a Christan say thank God as he cut off some one’s head?
UPDATE I: From the Right Scoop … Mark Levin rips McCain a new one with his idiot comment about comparing ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ to ‘Thank God’.
BREAKING NEWS: MORSI OUSTED … Military Coup … Egypt People Have Had it With Muslim Botherhood and Morsi … Obama not taking sides
The Egyptian military had given the Muslim Brotherhood’s President Morsi an ultimatum to step down and accept the will of the Egyptian people and for the good of Egypt. Morsi declined and the militarty stepped in and filfilled their threat. Don’t let it be said that Morsi was not warned.
Breaking News … President Morsi is out as military coup ousts Mosrsi and suspends the Constitution.
On Wednesday, Gen. Abdel Fatah Said Al-Sisi announced a military coup in Egypt. He said that the Constitution had been suspended, that early elections would take place, and that there would be a “code of ethics” for the media. He stated that the chief of the Constitutional court would be taking charge during a transitional period before another election. He said the new government would be “diverse and include all the people,” and that the constitution would be revised to reverse changes made by ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi.
Al-Sisi said there would be a code of ethics for the media that would “establish values and ethics for the media to follow.” He also stated that there would be a committee for reconciliation from leaders who are credible. The armed forces, he said, call on the great Egyptian people with its various groups to continue to have peaceful protests and end the crisis. He also said that the military warned it would take action against anyone moving beyond peaceful protest.
“May Allah preserve Egypt and its people,” al-Sisi concluded.
Millions of Egyptians took to the streets and called for the end of Morsi and his failure of leadership. How come Barack Obama is not referring to this as an Arab Spring for Democracy? The video below reports that Morsi has been placed under house arrest by the Army. Morsi is out.
Show Down in Egypt, Will a Defiant President Mohamed Morsi Step Down or Will the Military Intervene on Behalf of the People
EGYPT IS ON ALERT …
The deadline is looming for Egypt President Mohamed Morsi to step down or face the ultimatum made by the Egyptian military. Millions of protesters have assembled in Cairo to protest Morsi and have called for his resignation. The military had given Morsi a 48 hour ultimatum to do the will of the people or they would intervene and do so. Now, just hours remain before the deadline. How will this show down end, peacefully or with violence?
President Morsi has refused to step down as he said that he is the country’s “guardian of legitimacy”. However, the Muslim Brotherhood had also stated they would not run a candidate for president, yet they did following the overthrow of Mubarak. However, much of the protests from the people comes from the disastrous situation that has risen since Morsi was elected to power.
Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has rejected calls for his resignation, saying that he is Egypt’s “guardian of legitimacy” after three days of nationwide pro- and anti-government demonstrations, that have drawn millions to the streets.
His speech was a response to the protests, and to an ultimatum from Egypt’s military, which on Tuesday said it would issue a political “road map” unless Morsi resolved the crisis in 48 hours. Morsi had earlier dismissed the ultimatum, demanding in a message posted on Twitter that the army rescind it.
In his televised speech on Tuesday night, Morsi accused members of former president Hosni Mubarak’s regime of trying to topple his government and undermine the revolution.’
From The WAPO, Meanwhile, Abigail Hauslohner reports that the Egyptian police are more openly embracing the anti-Morsi protests.
Many more updates at Hot Air … Army has seized State TV.
President Barack Obama was so quick to side with the people against former president and United States ally Mubarak, but he is Switzerland and proclaims neutrality when it comes to the Egyptian people and the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi.
