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!!!

WHO IS THE JAYVEE MR PRESIDENT … MORE FROM AMERICA’S WORST PRESIDENT, EVER!!!
UNBELIEVABLE … President Barack Hussein Obama admitted during his speech yesterday that “WE DO NOT HAVE A STRATEGY YET” to deal with ISIS. JUST UNREAL. ISIS terrorists have been slaughtered innocent victims, taking over city after city in Syria and Iraq in the most brutal fashion. They just brutally murdered another couple hundred Syrian soldiers this week and beheaded American journalist James Foley . But instead Obama says he does not don’t want to put the cart before the horse. Get of the friggin golf course Obama and do your job. How unprepared, how detached, how derelict of their duty could a president possibly be? Just how dangerous could one president possibly be? And this clown had the audacity to call ISIS the Jayvee … Obama may want to look in the mirror and see he the real jayvee team consists of.
But I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet. I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them. At that point, I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.
But there’s no point in me asking for action on the part of Congress before I know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job done.
And Obama continues to dither.
More from Powerline, STRATEGY, WHAT STRATEGY?
And yet, by Obama’s own account, he has barely begun the process of developing a strategy to combat ISIL. How can this be? Well, from August 9 until August 25, he was on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard–apparently not the traditional presidential “working vacation.” Before that, who knows? Was there something that Obama had to do between June and the present that was more important than developing a strategy to stop the terrorist organization that was marauding across Iraq and Syria? Apparently so. Fundraising, most likely–the one thing Obama is good at.
The fact that we have arrived at this late date, and our president says “We don’t have a strategy yet,” testifies to the utter fecklessness and incompetence of the Obama administration.
HERO to ZERO … USC Trojan Cornerback Josh Shaw Admits He Lied About Rescuing His Nephew from Pool … Suspended by USC
HERO TO ZERO IN A MATTER OF DAYS … IT WAS ALL A HOAX.
Josh Shaw, the USC cornerback and team captain who was hailed for being a hero for rescuing a nephew in a pool and injuring both of his ankles in the process, now admits that it was all a lie. In a statement released by his attorney, Donald Etra, Josh Shaw acknowledged lying … “On Saturday, August 23, 2014, I injured myself in a fall. I made up a story about this fall that was untrue. I was wrong to not tell the truth. I apologize to USC for this action on my part.” Umm, through his attorney? Why on earth would one need an attorney to say that you lied?
The Los Angeles Police Department said Tuesday that Shaw’s name was in a report from an incident that occurred at the Orsini complex on North Figueroa Street Saturday about 10 p.m.
Josh Shaw, a hero for a matter of hours, is now known for a lie.
With the Trojans’ opener against Fresno State just days away, the USC senior football team captain Wednesday told school officials he fabricated a story about rescuing a nephew in a pool and lied about how he suffered ankle injuries, the school announced.
Shaw, a starting cornerback, was suspended from the team indefinitely.
“We are extremely disappointed in Josh,” USC Coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement. “He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story.”
Athletic Director Pat Haden said he was disappointed and surprised because he had found Shaw to be “a very credible kid.” Haden was in the hospital because of a heart issue when he first heard of Shaw’s alleged rescue and injuries. He said USC officials vetted Shaw’s story 12 times with a number of different people.
“Right now, what we know is we have a kid that fabricated a story, period,” Haden said.
And USC publicized it.
The school did not include an explanation of what it now believes actually happened. In a statement released through his attorney, Donald Etra, Shaw acknowledged lying but did not provide any details.
As rumors swirled about what happened to the player, Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Andrew Smith said on Tuesday evening that Shaw’s name was mentioned in a burglary report in an incident that occurred Saturday night in the 500 block of Figueroa Street, in downtown Los Angeles.
Shaw was an acquaintance of the victim, not a person of interest or a suspect, Smith said.
Barack Obama Sends More White House Officials to Michael Brown’s Funeral than Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s Funeral … Add Maj. Gen. Harold Greene & photo-journalist James Foley to the List
Sometimes a headline just says it all … What else would One expect from a Community Agitator?
Fox News reports, that the Obama administration sent more White House officials to the Michael Brown funeral than they did for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Hmm, Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher … Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher. Which one was more historic and important to America, let alone the world? It is just head-shaking the contempt this individual has and over-riding political agenda
The White House sent three officials to attend Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis — three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year.
The administration’s handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two.
For Monday’s funeral, the White House sent two officials with the White House Office of Public Engagement as well as Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force.
No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher’s funeral. For that, the White House sent former secretaries of State George Schultz and James Baker III — as well as the charge d’affaires to the U.K. and the former U.S. ambassador.
At the time, the nature of the delegation stirred controversy in the British media as tabloids claimed British officials felt snubbed that high-level American officials — including President Obama himself — were not attending.
How many do you think they sent to Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War? Hint, Obama, the so-called Commander in Chief was not there, he was too busy with his vacation. How many did Obama send to the funeral of murdered American photo-journalist James Foley?
President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists.
President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo.
Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel Shot to Death During Traffic Stop … DOUBLE STANDARD: Where’s the MSM Outrage?
WHERE’S THE WALL TO WALL MSM COVERAGE, WHERE’S AL SHARTTON, WHERE’S JESSE JACKSON? WHERE IS THE CALL FROM BARACK OBAMA TO HIS FAMILY?
64 year old Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel was shot multiple times during a traffic stop on Saturday and later died of his wounds at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Police Chief Pimentel was shot by 24 year old Joshua Manuel Lopez, who had an active misdemeanor warrant for graffiti at the time he was pulled over. AND YOU WONDER WHY POLICE OFFICERS REACT THE WAY THEY DO WHEN THEY PULL SOME ONE OVER OR ARE CONFRONTED? Joshua Manuel Lopez had only a misdemeanor warrant for graffiti but yet was armed with a gun and shot and killed a police officer. Joshua Manuel Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. Lopez faces capital murder charges and is being held in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
Take a good look America as to the dangers that police officers are confronted every day with every possible encounter they have. But the MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, AG Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more concerned with fanning the flames of racism and race baiting, rather than honoring those police officers who protect and serve. You will only hear from an agenda driven media and opportunists about how police officer Darren Wilson assassinated Michael Brown. God forbid they honor individuals like Police Chief Michael Pimentel who had a long career of protecting and serving. I wonder how many people the White House is sending to Michael Pimentel’s funeral?

Parents Turn Their 13 Year Old Daughter into Sheriff’s Office after Finding Nude Pics on Cell Phone & Tablet in Dindiddie County, VA
TOUGH LOVE … WHEN WILL TEENS GET A CLUE ABOUT SEXTING?
Dindiddie County, VA parents have turned their 13 year old daughter into Sheriff’s deputies after they found nude pictures on her cell phone and tablet. The teens parents were shocked to discover that their daughter was sending and receiving nude pics. Exactly what part about creating and disseminating child porn don’t these teens quite understand? Even though it is possible their daughter could face criminal charges, they did this in order to protect her. The mother, whose name remains anonymous to protect the identity of the 13 year old, said that she is particularly concerned about whether the people she shared photos with were adults. The soon to be 8th grader may not necessarily face charges and go through the court system, but instead go through a program called diversion in the juvenile justice system. However, any older teens involved could most certainly be facing felony charges depending on their ages.
The parents discovered their 13-year-old daughter, who is about to enter the eighth-grade, had been sending and receiving naked pictures of other teens using her tablet.
And the deeper they dug, the worse it got. In fact, things got so bad they called in the sheriff’s department to investigate.
“What scares me is, this is much bigger than we realize. How many others are doing this and you don’t realize it,” asked the Dinwiddie County mother of two.
FOX 4 sister station CBS 6 News is not revealing her name to protect her family’s identity.
The parents became aware of what their 13-year-old was doing, when their other child heard voices in her bedroom around 4 a.m.
The parents then confiscated the electronics.
“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” she said.
While none of the nude photo’s showed their daughter with anyone else, there were pictures being sent back and forth with other boys.
“Everybody wanted to be her friend, because according to these people, she was cool now,” she said.
57 Year Old Babysitter Martha Dreher Charged with Arson and Setting Fire to Family’s Home Because Two Pre-Teen Girls were “Disrespectful”
Would just quitting your job have been asking too much to do?
57 year old Martha Dreher has been charged with arson and setting fire to the family’s home that she babysits for. According to reports, Dreher was so annoyed with the two girls she babysat, that she decided to set their bedrooms on fire. The fire was set when the father and two girls were out of town. Imagine having hired this nut-job to take care of your children? Martha Dreher has denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas; however, she said that she wanted to quit and that the girls had been disrespectful to her. Home surveillance video captured Dreher driving up to the empty house earlier this month, then leaving 20 minutes later as flames were visible from the girls’ bedroom. Are you kidding, she was disrespected by two pre-teen girls so she sets the how on fire? GOOD GRIEF!!!
A Texas woman was allegedly so annoyed with two girls she babysat, police say she decided to set their bedrooms on fire.
Martha Dreher is charged with arson, accused of setting a fire in the two girls’ rooms while their father, Glenn Williams, was out of town with his daughters.
Dreher, 57, had worked for the family for a few months. She denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas, but told investigators she was tired of dealing with the girls and wanted to quit, according to Williams.
“She said that it was horrible, that the girls — my oldest — had been very disrespectful,” said Williams.
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Doesn’t Think Asians Are Smarter Than Anyone Else, Can’t Tell Them Apart
HARRY REID CAN’T TELL RIGHT FROM WONG …
On Friday speaking to the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Harry Reid (D-NV) joked about the stereo-type Asians and then some how thought it was okay to say that he could not keep his Wongs straight as they all looked alike. Are you kidding? Imagine what the fire storm would have been if he said the same thing about blacks? Imagine if these same comments were made by a Republican? There would not be calls for an apology, there would be cries for him to resign.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is making the rounds Friday after video surfaced of him cracking two jokes about Asians at a Las Vegas meeting.
Speaking to the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Reid joked about the stereotype regarding Asian intelligence.
“I don’t think you’re smarter than anyone else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” he said to chuckles.
Later, when someone mentioned a person with the last name “Wong,” Reid cracked: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
National Review reminds us that the hypocrite Harry Reid was quick to go after his 2010 US Senate challenger Sharron Angle when she made an Asian joke:
While on the campaign trail in 2010, Reid criticized Republican challenger Sharron Angle for her own “Asian” comments. Angle came under fire for telling a group of Hispanic students that “some of you look a little more Asian to me.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is apologizing for comments he made in “poor taste” about Asian people.
The apology was prompted by remarks he made Thursday to the Asian Chamber of Commerce in Las Vegas and after video was posted by conservative trackers.
On Friday, Reid offered a mea culpa: “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”
Barack Obama Supposedly Outraged Over Beheading of Journalist James Foley, Vows to Stay on Course … The Golf Course that Is
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PRESIDENT, HAS HE NO SENSE OF COMMON DECENCY?
How does Barack Obama spend eight minutes professing outrage over the beheading of American journalist James Foley at the hands of ISIS and then minutes later rush off to the gold course and yuk it up with his friends? WHO DOES THIS? It is unbelievable that a US President could be so out of touch, so self-consumed, so ignorant and so void of conscience that they disrespect the family and the memory of James Foley. Let alone disrespect the United States. Get off the golf course you clown and take you job seriously. You are the President and the Commander in Chief of the United States of America … ACT LIKE IT!
And just when you thought Obama’s golfing after his faux ISIS outrage could not get any worse, from Twitchy comes the Fist Bump in Chief. Here is your Hope & Change America. Here is the president you not only elected once, the one that you some how managed to reelect. What a tone deaf, insensitive, cold, uncaring individual. Obama could care less about James Foley and the safety and security of the United States. Such things are an inconvenience to his tee times.
From The Daily News via Powerline comes the headline and the disgusting and reprehensible optics of Barack Obama golfing while the heartbroken parents of James Foley gives a presser of their brutal son’s death at the hands of ISIS. Some one may want to put an AMBER ALERT out for Obama’s missing soul and conscience. At what point will Obama make US national security and dealing with ISIS more important than his golf game? Sadly, it would appear Obama is more concerned with shooting par than ISIS.
Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathhews took exception with Barack Obama, not so much with the presidents golfing, but instead Obama’s statement regarding ISIS’s beheading of American journalist James Foley.
“I don’t know why he used the word ‘justice.’ It’s not appropriate here. This is an attack on our country, we have to react to it,” an upset Chris Matthews reacted to a video excerpt of President Obama’s statement today about the beheading by an ISIS member of American freelance journalist James Foley.
President Barack Obama teed off again on Thursday, just 24 hours after pictures of his wide grin on the golf course drew condemnation in the wake of the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley.
‘Admit it,’ a White House pool reporter emailed the press corps. ‘You all made small-dollar bets that POTUS would be playing golf today. And … you would be right!’
‘We are at the Farm Neck Golf Club at 1:13 pm. and POTUS is hitting the links again.’
The president drew fire Wednesday after reacting to Foley’s on-camera slaying for just five minutes, and then gripping his driver.
He had told a global audience minutes earlier that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’
Then he was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour round at Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard.
