Michael Foley, Brother of Beheaded American Journalist James Foley, Says US State Department Threatened Us
IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GOVERNMENT OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE … NOT ONE AGAINST THE PEOPLE!!!
In an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly last night on ‘The Kelly File’ , Michael Foley, the brother of beheaded American journalist James Foley said that the American State Department threatened him personally. UNREAL. It is one thing for the United States government not to negotiate with terrorists and pay ransoms, but to hinder a family in trying to get their loved one back, at any cost, so-to-speak. It’s not like Obama was busy trying to secure Foley’s release. He was too busy on vacation and golfing.
Kelly: I’m wondering if you feel he [Obama] and the administration did all they could to get Jim back.
Foley: No, no. We’re appalled by the situation and you know, it went past not doing everything they could, they were actually in impedance and got in our way and that’s what really bothers me to the core. We were, I was specifically threatened by the Department of State about raising funds toward ransom demands for my brother. We were smart enough to look past it but it slowed us down. We lost a lot of time trying to regroup.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly last night on the Kelly File the brother of beheaded American journalist James “Jim” Foley, Michael Foley, expressed disappointment over how the Obama administration is handling the threat of terror army ISIS and in the administration’s handling of his brother’s capture leading up to his death. James Foley was beheaded three weeks ago by an ISIS terrorist and a YouTube video of the gruesome murder was posted online. President Obama was on vacation at the time and eight minutes after making a statement about the murder, returned to the golf course, a move a majority of Americans found to be in bad taste.
In reacting to President Obama’s speech earlier this week, Foley said he wanted to see a more involved strategy put on the table to stabilize the region. Further in reaction to a question posed by Kelly about whether the Obama administration did everything it could to bring James Foley home, especially after the Bowe Bergdahl swap and comments by Obama saying Americans leave no man behind, Michael Foley said his family is “appalled” by the situation. Foley also talked about how he was threatened directly by the State Department and said that when the family tried to get information from the U.S. government or from other allies, they were stonewalled
Amazing VIDEO … Glenn Beck Remembers 9-11 and Brings Americans Back to Tuesday, September 11, 2001 … ‘I Don’t Have Words to Describe What I’m Witnessing Right Now’
AMAZING MUST SEE VIDEO … Tuesday, September 11, 2001 is remembered.
‘I Don’t Have Words to Describe What I’m Witnessing Right Now’
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%.
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.

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.
First Plane Hits South South Tower and the following horror
Second Plane Hits North Tower of World Trade Center
Tower Two Collapses as people run for their lives
South Tower Falls … “Oh my God”
North Tower Collapse
Initial news reports of the United Flight 93 crash in Shanksville Somerset Pennsylvania September 11th 2001
Barack Obama’s Strategy on ISIS Speech Tonight … Who Cares Unless It Sounds Like Tony Stark (IRON MAN) … For Your Consideration, The Jericho!!!
Does it really matter what Obama says tonight, TALK IS CHEAP and this president has no credibility!!!
The media has been all a buzz ahead of President Obama’s speech tonight on ISIS wondering what Barack Obama must say, how he will say it, what color will his suit be, how about his tie, will he be wearing a flag pin and on and on and on. WHO CARES!!! To borrow a line from Hillary Clinton, “what difference does it make?” This clueless and dangerous president has been forced into this speech in dealing with ISIS as this joke of a president never considered ISIS a danger as he considered them the Jayvee. ISIS was on the move and Obama knew about them for well over a year from his presidential briefings. That is if he read them. Now that the polls say that Obama is lacking in his dealing with ISIS and an overwhelming majority want them bombed back to the stone age … Obama forces himself off the golf course and makes a strategy.
Let me make one thing clear, unless Obama’s says and provides the same VIDEO as below and channels his inner Tony Stark, it is a complete waste of time. Sorry, when Obama talks tough and makes promises, all I hear is his so-called line in the sand with Syria and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”.
They say the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once. That’s how dad did it, that’s how America does it, and it has worked out pretty good so far. Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain and I personally guarantee you the bad guys won’t even want to come out of their caves. For your consideration … THE JERICHO!!!
Of course we know that won’t happen, Obama will tell us that all Muslims are not terrorists and that Islam is a region of Peace, blah, blah , blah … “ISIL,” blah, blah, blah … “I”, sounding more like the teacher from Peanuts and Charlie Brown than a United States Commander in Chief.
Barack Obama’s Gutless Meandering on ISIL: From Promises of “Degrade and Destroy” to a “Manageable Problem” all in One Speech
AND YOU WONDER WHY ISIS OR ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD DOES NOT FEAR THE US … THANKS BARACK OBAMA.
Yet another heading shaking speech for Barack Obama in reaction to ISIS … Barack Obama spoke earlier this morning in Estonia and once again made an attempt to address dealing with ISIS as he failed miserably last week with his, “we have no strategy” comment. This time Obama began by saying ...”Our objective is clear, and that is to degrade and destroy ISIL, so that it is no longer a threat”. Tough talk from a paper tiger who has done nothing but dither on ISIS and refuse to say that we are at war against them as they (ISIL) are most certainly at war against the United States. However, Obama’s lack of a strategy in dealing with ISIS and his definition of clear are a mystery to the rest of us. Yet again Obama presented a mixed message as he went from promises of bringing ISIS to justice and to “degrade and destroy” them to at the speech’s end saying that ISIS a “manageable problem” if the “international community” comes together. WOW, yet more lack of leadership from Obama.
A manageable problem? What’s that mean, only foreign media will be beheaded? Is it manageable Mr. President if ISIS only rapes and kills 10 women and children a day rather than 20? Or maybe Obama will manage the number of individuals who are stones to death or he are shot in the head by ISIS for not converting to Islam? Maybe it’s manageable if ISIS only creates a caliphate of 3/4th of Iraq and Syria, rather than all of it?
Sorry Obama, under your dithering presidency, our objective has been never less clear. His speech was nothing but a cautious speech that rang hollow. Okay, I am just going to put the obvious out there … if your OBJECTIVE is to DESTROY ISIS, why in the HELL would you need to MANAGE IT? What is our mission, to crush them or contain them!!! What a clear message from Obama.
“We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISILl’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem,” said Obama.
“And the question is going to be making sure we’ve got the right strategy but also making sure we’ve got the international will to do it. This is something that is a continuation of a problem we’ve seen certainly since 9/11, but before and it continues to metastasize in different ways. And what we’ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the internationl community to isolate this cancer.
“This particular brand of extremism that is first and foremost destructive to the Muslim world and the Arab World and North Africa and the people who live there. They’re the ones who are most severly affected. They’re the ones who are constantly under threat of being killed. They’re the ones whose econimies are completely upended to the point where they can’t produce their own food and they can’t produce the kinds of goods and services to sell in the world marketplace.
“And they’re falling behind because of this very small and narrow but very dangerous segment of the population. And we’ve got to combat it in a sustained, effective way. And I’m confident we’re going to be able to do that.”
Needless to say ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Putin, Iran, North Korea and the rest of the enemies of the US are wetting themselves laughing at you and US.
Barack Obama as Divisive and Clueless as Ever on Labor Day … “If I Were Looking for a New Job … I’d Join a Union”
IT’S TOO BAD BARACK OBAMA WAS NOT LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB NOW …
Barack Obama used Labor Day as yet another opportunity to spew divisiveness and and make a political speech. Barack Obama told a union audience in Wisconsin on Monday that while “Republicans in Congress love to say no,” he is the one who “placed a bet on America’s workers” and would “join a union” if he were looking for a new job. I guess mum was the word as Obama has said “NO” to the XL Keystone Pipeline and the thousands of jobs that would create for Americans, namely union workers. What a feckless, pathetic president who after six years of failure is still blaming others. Obama touted his accomplishments as president as real unemployment in the United States is at between 12.6% and 18%.
What is truly sick, is Barack Obama showed more passion at this union event than he did in his response to ISIS where he had no plan. Obama has done everything to destroy job growth in America as labor unions go along and act as his useful idiots.
CNN – The Divider in Chief was at it again:
The President used the Labor Day gathering of 6,000 union members and their families to herald organized labor’s role in passing the 40-hour work week, overtime pay for workers and a minimum wage. Standing before helmet-clad workers sporting “We Are One” t-shirts, Obama also said he would likely join a union.
“If I were looking for a good job that lets me build some security for my job, I’d join a union,” the President said to raucous applause. “If I were busting my butt in the service industry and wanted an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work, I’d join a union…I’d want a union looking out for me and if I cared about these things I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me.”
The midterms are important for Democrats and Obama’s legacy. Midterms in a second term are historically bad for the President’s party, and Democrats are facing the prospect of losing the Senate and staying the minority in the House in 2014.
“Republicans in Congress love to say no,” Obama said. “Those are just facts, the facts of life. They say no to everything.”
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

When the Lunatic Fring Becomes the Norm … Democrats Say Climate Change Is a Bigger Threat than ISIS, Al-Qaeda & Iran’s and Noth Korea’s Nuclear Programs
THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY …
Want to know why we have a dithering president when it comes to ISIS? According to a recent PEW poll, Barack Obama and Democrats think that global warming is actually more of a threat than terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda or ISIS. The poll shows also that climate change is also more of a concern for Democrats than nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea. This is what America has elected president, not once, but twice and have given a majority to in the US Senate. Image if Obama was in office during the Cuban Missile Crisis? What is it going to take for a lazy, apathetic and clueless electorate to wake up, another 9-11? And you wonder why Obama has no strategy to deal with ISIS, he is too busy with his “BS” green energy give-aways that have cost the American tax payers dearly.
WAKE UP AMERICA AND TAKE VOTING AND YOUR COUNTRY AS IMPORTANT AS YOU DO AS AMERICAN IDOL, DANCING WITH THE STARS AND DUCK DYNASTY!!!
