Um, At a Loss for Words … Sec. of State John Kerry Goes to Paris to Give the French a “Big Hug” and Brings James Taylor to Play ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ (VIDEO)

WELCOME TO THE JV PRESIDENCY OF BARACK OBAMA … JAMES TAYLOR APOLOGY FOREIGN POLICY FOR THE FRENCH? SNL WILL NOT EVEN BE ABLE TO OUTDO THE REALTY OF THIS CLUSTERF*UCK THAT IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND A JOHN KERRY FOREIGN POLICY EMBARRASSMENT.

When I first heard this story, I thought it was a spoof from the Onion. Sadly, it was not.

The Obama administration got hammered from the RIGHT and the LEFT after they failed to send anyone of any importance to last Sunday’s “Unity” march in Paris, France against radical Islam, so they decided to make up for it today. What was the stroke of brilliance that Barack Obama, John Kerry and their minions came up with … why to send Secretary of State John “why the long face” Kerry to give the French a “Big Hug” and, wait for it, wait for it, also to send James Taylor and his acoustic guitar as well to sing, ‘You Got a Friend’. WTF, you got to be kidding! This is stunning, embarrassingly, awkwardly and ridiculously stunning.

Is this how low we have sunk in America under Barack Obama? The United States of America is the laughing stock of the world. Under the Obama administration the US went from being feared to playing the fool. Who in the hell signed off on this that it would be a good idea? Obama’s administration was reportedly caught by surprise at the size and the interest of last weeks march in Paris and those very same people sat around a frigging table and came up with this idea to make it right. REALLY?

I agree with Twitchy 100%, ‘No way this really happened.’

Warning … heavy sarcasm because that is all this embarrassing episode deserves.

Rumor has it, James Taylor was not first on the list. According to an anonymous source, the cast of ‘Friends’ was supposed to go to Paris and sing their theme song; however, Joey and Phoebe could not be reached in time. That and the Rembrandt’s were reportedly too busy.

I’ll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I’ll be there for you
Like I’ve been there before
I’ll be there for you
‘Cause you’re there for me too

Actually, the first idea from the Obama minions was to have Casey Casem provide a long distance dedication to France using the Dionne Warwick song, ‘That’s What Friends Are For.’ But it turns out that the Solid Gold dancer were no where to be found and could not fit into their 1980′s spandex outfits. Also, it seems that Dionne Warwick with Elton John, Gladys Knight & Stevie Wonder are no longer speaking to each other. That and John Kerry did not realize that Casey Kasem was dead.

Their second plan was to reunite the Jackson 5 so that they could sing, I’ll Be There’. However, even Barack Obama had enough sense to know that no one, not even the Obamamessiah could reunite the Jackson’s with all their dysfunction. For some reason Barack did know that Michael Jackson was dead, go figure.

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I’ll be there

I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there

Third, it appears that Barack Obama, John Kerry and the State Department tried to get the Beatles back together for one final appearance and perform in Paris France their song, “With a Little Help From My Friends.” What better way to say I am sorry, than to reunite the Beatles. However, they ran into a couple of strategic roadblocks, no sarcasm intended, they really were not speaking to each other. Also, they appeared not to realize that John Lennon and George Harrison had passed..

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)
No I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends

Then John Kerry thought, wait a minute, we can get Joe Cocker to sing the Beatles song, he remembered Cocker had done a fantastic job sing it at Woodstock. However, upon further review Kerry learned that Joe Cocker had recently passed as well.

The Obama administration then thought, hey let’s call Queen, they can sing, ‘You’re My Best Friend’. Nothing sucks up better and says I am sorry than telling someone they are your best friend, even if you don’t mean it. Once again Kerry and Obama had to be informed that Freddie Mercury died in 1991.

You’re the best friend
That I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
You’re my best friend
Ooh, you make me live

Two People Killed Thursday in An Anti-Terrorism Operation in Verviers, Belgium (VIDEO)

Two people jihadists have been killed and a another has been arrested in an anti-terrorism operation in  Verviers, Belgium. The individuals are believed to have links to ISIS and to have been planning attacks in Belgium.  The operation was intended to check on suspected radicals, one of several being conducted against people believed to have returned to Belgium after taking part in the Syrian civil war. As reported at the Jerusalem Post, public service radio RTBF said there were no casualties among the security forces involved. Two unidentified people were killed and a third seriously wounded. Several others were detained. This comes on the foot-heals of the terrorist attacks in Paris that left 17 dead. Looks like Europe may finally have gotten the wake up call on radical Islam.

Counter-terror police, in a series of raids, rounded up suspects they believed were intent on launching terror operations in Belgium, officials said.

At least two suspects died during the raids, and another was injured, officials told members of the media today. The officials said no police or civilians were injured after the suspects opened fire with automatic weapons.

CNN:

Two people were killed Thursday in an anti-terrorism operation in the eastern Belgian city of Verviers, CNN affiliate VTM News reported.

The group is believed to have links to ISIS and to have been planning attacks in Belgium, CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said.

Federal Belgian police took at least one suspect into custody near a train station, VTM News said. Further details weren’t immediately available.

Verviers is about 69 miles (111 kilometers) east-southeast of Brussels and 200 miles (322 kilometers) northeast of Paris.

The anti-terrorism raid comes amid heightened alerts in Europe after this month’s attack on the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Anti-terrorism operations were underway in other cities, a senior Belgian counter-terrorism official told Cruickshank.

The Telegraph – Casualties in Belgium police anti-terror raid in Verviers:

The suspects opened fire on police in Verviers, in the east of the country, before being killed, the prosecutor said. No policemen were injured during the operation, in which 10 buildings were searched.

The group was about to mount terrorist attacks on a “grand scale”, the prosecutor said.

“A second Paris has been avoided,” a ministry of justice source told Nieuwsblad newspaper.

Local residents in Verviers heard a fusillade of machine gun shots and explosions.

A local resident said: “I heard two explosions and saw two young men run away. They were between 25 and 30 years of Arab origin.”

UPDATE I: Belgium on high alert after deadly anti-terror raid.

Referring to the raid itself, he said: “The suspects immediately and for several minutes opened fire with military weaponry and handguns on the special units of the federal police before they were neutralised.”

Officials said police came under sustained fire from a flat above a bakery.

After the operation, four Kalashnikovs, bomb-making equipment and police clothing were found, according to local media. Security forces remain in the Verviers area.

Police are expected to provide more details at a briefing on Friday.

CNN Poll: Majority of Americans Back the Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline as Barack Obama Vows to Veto It if Passed

Shocker, Barack Obama once against doing something against the will of the American people … 

A recent CNN poll shows that a majority of Americans are in favor of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. A resounding 57% are in favor of building the 1,179 mile Canada to Texas pipeline, while only 28% oppose. Of course you already know what side of the fence Barack Obama takes on this matter. Obama continues to pander to the environmental wackos and facing no more elections, once again goes against the will of the American people.  No matter how many jobs, permanent ones, part time or otherwise are created by this oil pipeline project, the fact of the matter is that jobs will be created. This is a bad thing how? But Obama will tell you he wants to create jobs for the American people. Really? Even though Americans are overwhelmingly in favor of the building of the Keystone XL pipeline, the House has passed the construction of it, Obama has vowed to veto the bill. Yeah, he really cares about putting people to work.

Read CNN Poll here.

Poll Question: Based on what you have read or heard, do you favor or oppose building the Keystone XL pipeline?

CNN Poll_Keystone Pipeline_011415

A majority of Americans favor the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline — a result that could give Republicans a boost as they move toward a showdown with President Barack Obama over the project — a CNN/ORC poll has found.

The 1,179-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline is backed by 57% of the 1,011 Americans surveyed on Dec. 18-21. Just 28% oppose it, while 15% say they are unsure.

The controversial project has become the subject of a battle between liberal environmentalists who argue it would contribute to global warming and conservatives who say it would create jobs and help the United States break away from Middle Eastern oil.

President Barack Obama has threatened to veto a measure that the Senate is set to vote on as soon as next week, which would end the State Department’s six-year-old review of the project and authorize its construction immediately. Obama has said he objects to the decision-making process being removed from the executive branch.

Not only do 57% back the construction of the pipeline, in the same CNN poll, as reported at The Daily Caller, “a majority of those polled, at 57 percent, say global warming will not pose a serious threat to their way of life,” and that only 43 percent “expect global warming to threaten them.”

Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

 ”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

From The Daily Show,  Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)

THE BLAZE:

Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.

How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.

“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”

“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”

Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?

Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.

The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.

Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy

The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.

“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.

“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”

He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.

So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.

UPDATE I: The Politico – White House was out of step as Paris march grew.

The JV Presidency.

Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?

Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.

White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

President Barack Obama Snubs World Leaders and France, Skips Historic Unity Rally in Paris to Watch Football

UM, THIS IS WHAT LEADING FROM BEHIND LOOKS LIKE AMERICA, OR ZERO LEADERSHIP WHATSOEVER.

It is one thing for Barack Obama to treat “We the People” with such disdain, but for the International man of mystery and rock star to snub Europe like this is breathtaking. Barack Obama skipped the historic “Unity” rally in Paris, France that was attended by 50 other world leaders. Obama did not send VP Joe Biden or Secretary of State Kerry either. But wait until you hear what important things Obama was doing instead of attending a rally against radical Islam and in support of our allies … Obama was watching football.

Barack Obama Missing … Where’s Waldo?

APTOPIX France Attacks Rally

According to an administration official, President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.

Heads of state from every major European power, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joined French President Francois Hollande.

But the U.S.A. was M.I.A.

Obama_football3

You fools thought I actually believe I care about you and your war on radical Islam, I’m watching me some football.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden remained in Washington, despite having no events on their public schedules Sunday. Secretary of State John Kerry was a world away in India, on a pre-planned trip.

Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit held on the march’s sidelines, but he slipped away and made appearances on four American morning television talk shows just as the incredible rally was starting.

The US was represented at the march only by Jane Hartley, the American ambassador to France who is unrecognizable to most Americans, let alone the rest of the world.

Now the world knows what we Americans have none for years, Obama is the worst president in American history.

Jihadi VIDEO From the Grave of Paris Deli Terrorist Amedy Coulibaly Saying He was with ISIS

SO WHO WAS BEHIND THE PARIS, FRANCE TERROR ATTACKS?

A VIDEO was posted online Sunday of gunman Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who took part in the Paris terror attack at the Jewish deli taking and murdering hostages, professing loyalty to ISIS. Amedy Coulibaly was shot dead in the police raid on the Hyper Cacher supermarket in eastern Paris. In the video, Coulibaly says he carried out the attack on behalf of Islamic State, ISIS. You will remember that Coulibaly told BFMTV  he had “coordinated” his terror attacks with the Charlie Hebdo killers and was a member of ISIS. The Kouachi brothers had also said the attacks were coordinated as well before they were killed.

UK Telegraph - Jihadi video of Amedy Coulibaly emerges from beyond the grave:

Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman who killed four people in a Jewish grocery, says he helped to fund the Kouachi brothers’ attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

A video has emerged online of Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who killed a policewoman on Thursday in Paris and another four people in a kosher supermarket in Vincennes on Friday, seeking to justify his murders, pledging allegiance to Isil and discussing the Charlie Hebdo attack.

Entitled ‘soldier of the Caliphate”, the film shows Coulibaly, referred to as Aboü Bassir AbdAllah al-Ifriqip, preparing his terror strike by doing push ups in what looks like a prison coutryard, and filming a cache of weapons.

German Newspaper The Hamburger Morgenpost (MOPO) Firebombed That Reprinted Charlie Hebdo Cartoons

MORE FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN EUROPE …

German newspaper, The Hamburger Morgen Post, was firebombed overnight as police state that a “burning object” and rocks were thrown through a window. The MOPO as it is locally known had reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed from Charlie Hebdo.  The newspaper featured three Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the prophet Mohammed on its front page on Thursday, together with the headline “This much freedom must be possible!” No one was injured in the fire at the editorial offices of the Hamburger Morgenpost.

Charlie Hebdo_MOPO

Berlin (AFP) – A German tabloid that reprinted cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was targeted in firebombing Sunday, police said.

With security services on high alert after a killing spree in Paris by Islamic extremists, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.

“Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window,” a police spokesman told AFP.

“Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly.”

The Hamburger Morgenpost, known locally as the MOPO, had splashed the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline “This much freedom must be possible!”

Police said the attack had occurred at about 0120 GMT and that two young men seen acting suspiciously near the scene were detained. State security has opened an investigation, a spokesman added.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls declared Saturday that France was at war with radical Islam after the harrowing sieges that led to the deaths of three gunmen and four hostages the day before. New details emerged about the bloody final confrontations, and security forces remained on high alert.

“It is a war against terrorism, against jihadism, against radical Islam, against everything that is aimed at breaking fraternity, freedom, solidarity,” Mr. Valls said during a speech in Évry, south of Paris.

EXIT QUESTION: YOU MEAN PRIOR TO THE TERRORIST SLAUGHTER AT CHARLIE HEBDO AND THE PARIS KOSHER DELI IN PARIS, FRANCE WASN’T AT WAR WITH RADICAL ISLAM?
