Intelligence Analysts Accuse CENTCOM of Covering Up Cooked ISIS Intel … The Obama Policy on ISIS is a Disaster!!! Did WH Pressue to Ease Off on ISIS Intel?
WHO IS THE REAL JV, OBAMA OR ISIS? DID THE WHITE HOUSE PRESSURE ANALYSTS TO EASE OFF ON NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT OF ISIS?
SORRY, BUT NOTHING SHOULD SHOCK US ANYMORE AS TO WHAT COMES FROM THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE … From The Daily Beast comes the following troubling new story … Allegations are mounting that senior intelligence officials at Central Command not only skewed findings on the ISIS war to please D.C., but tried to hide what they did. But weren’t we just told by White House Spox Josh Earnest that Barack Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS? Let’s be serious folks, Barack Obama has never taken the threat of ISIS seriously. It is Obama who called them the JV. Josh Ernest has claimed that Obama is not afraid of receiving bad news. Really? One might add the caveat of receiving, listening and acting upon bad news are three completely separate things. Why does plausible deniability come to mind here with this story with regards to Barack Obama?
So where did the coverup and cooking of ISIS intel start and were they ordered to do so? Fox News was told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to “cut it out” and “toe the line.”
Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to “cut it out,” Fox News has learned – as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.
Those emails, among others, are now in the possession of the Pentagon inspector general. The IG’s probe is expanding into whether intelligence assessments were changed to give a more positive picture of the anti-ISIS campaign.
In July, a group of intelligence analysts at the U.S. military’s Central Command accused their bosses of distorting and selectively editing intelligence reports about the fight against ISIS in order to portray that campaign as more successful than it really was. As a result of those complaints, the Pentagon’s inspector general opened an investigation.
Now, the allegations of misconduct have extended to a possible cover-up, with some analysts accusing the senior intelligence officials at CENTCOM, Maj. Gen. Steven Grove and his civilian deputy, Gregory Ryckman, of deleting emails and files from computer systems before the inspector general could examine them, three individuals familiar with the investigation told The Daily Beast.
One U.S. official said the alleged activity could amount to obstruction and interference with the inspector general’s investigation, which began last summer. He noted that files relevant to the investigation began to disappear from CENTCOM computers after the Pentagon watchdog’s staff began their work.
Two sources said that investigators are piecing together a trail of emails and reports to find out what may have been deleted, as well as what officials outside CENTCOM knew about potential manipulation of intelligence.
The analysts themselves have taken steps to preserve material that could be used as evidence, these people said.
All three individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.
Food for thought from Town Hall.com:
Further, Earnest argued Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS.
There are two major problems with these claims and assertions. First, last week investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed that her sources, who have worked in the White House, have told her Obama is flat out rejecting intelligence about Islamic groups he doesn’t consider terrorists.
“I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he has made up his mind, I would say closed his mind, they say, to the intelligence they try to bring him about various groups he does not consider terrorists even if they’re on the U.S. list of designated terrorists,” Attkisson said during an interview with Newsmax. “I don’t know the reasoning for it I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him or been in the circle that has attempted to present him with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it, he said he doesn’t want it or he won’t read it in some instances.”
Second, we’ve been hearing for months about the manipulation and downgrading of ISIS intelligence to make the situation in Iraq and Syria look better before being presented to Obama in the Oval Office.

Just curious Democrats, who is inciting fear? However, putting your head in the sand and pretending that RADICAL ISLAM is not at war with America is what brought us 9-11.
Are you kidding me, is this ad where Democrats are claiming GOP candidates are inciting fear from the DNC or the Onion? Democrats are refusing to call Islamists and radical jihadists who want to kill Americans and Westerners, the radical Islamist that they are? REALLY? Are these people stuck on stupid? What part of “radical” Islam don’t the Liberals quite get? Just how out of touch are Democrats, Americans, both Republicans Democrats and Independents are overwhelmingly in favor of using “radical Islam”.
This was meant to be an attack ad by Democrats but it plays more like a skit on SNL.
No one is saying all Muslims or Islam, they are classifying them as radical Islam. What might be even more comical is that they are using George W. Bush, the individual who said you are either with us or against us and coined the phrase axis of evil, to try and prove their liberal talking point. Seriously, the Democrats are praising George W. Bush? But I thought he was blamed by Obama and Democrats for all the evils of the world? This is truly pathetic. After bashing GWB for years, now as the Gateway Pundit opines, Democrats want Republicans to be more like him. You just can’t make this stuff up. Liberalism truly may just actually be a disease with no cure. If you can’t even name the enemy, how in the hell could anyone even think you are capable of defeating them?
Of course Democrats have no problem going after and inciting fear and saying they they are at war with Republicans, Conservatives and the Tea Party. Then again, who was it that backed the KKK?
As stated at BPR, The ad was roundly ridiculed as “tone-deaf,” “insulting to the American voter’s intelligence” and “just plain stupid” by conservative blogger Alex Griswold. Atlanta radio host and RedState editor Erick Erickson pleaded with the Democrats to “run this ad over and over with a side of gun control ads.”
Sorry GWB, Islam is not Peace, you better read the Koran.
YES HE IS AND EVEN MORE INSANE AND THANKS TO THOSE WHO VOTED FOR THIS DANGEROUS, LYING PRESIDENT FOR A SECOND TIME …
Following the Paris terror attacks and the threats by ISIS to infiltrate as Syrian refugees, Barack Obama plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016 and we won’t have a clue as to who they are. Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump quested the mental soundness of President Obama plans by saying, What’s our president doing? Is he insane?”
Billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is questioning the mental soundness of President Obama in light of the administration’s plans to allow Syrian refugees into the United States.
“Refugees are pouring into our great country from Syria. We don’t even know who they are. They could be [Islamic State]. They could be anybody. What’s our president doing? Is he insane?” Mr. Trump said in a short video posted to social media on Tuesday.
This president forgot a long time ago what his oath of office meant.
Secretary of State John Kerry Said What … There was a “Rationale” for the Assault on Satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo, Unlike the Attack in Paris
HE SAID WHAT?!?
Did the United States Secretary of State John Kerry just make a justification for a terror attack that saw the death of innocent lives? He most certainly did. As reported at The Politico, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested on Tuesday that there was a “rationale” for the assault on satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo, unlike the more recent attacks in Paris. WHAT!!! There was a rationale behind an Islamic terror attack of a media outlet that killed 12 innocent people? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What kind of an ass-hat makes such a comment? The sad reality is we get to see a true glimpse into what the Obama administration really thinks about terrorism and why they have done little to nothing to stop ISIS. They actually think in some cases there is a “rationale” to terrorists killing people. UNREAL.
Jeb Bush to John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and the LEFT …There is no rationale for barbaric Islamic terrorism
Secretary of State John Kerry suggested on Tuesday that there was a “rationale” for the assault on satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo, unlike the more recent attacks in Paris.
“There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that,” Kerry said in Paris, according to a transcript of his remarks. “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, OK, they’re really angry because of this and that.”
“This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people,” he continued.
The attack on Charlie Hebdo, which took place in January, killed 12 people and was perpetrated by radical Islamic militants with ties to al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen. An al Qaeda statement claiming responsibility for the murders said they were retribution for the magazine’s decision to run cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed, and to avenge the drone strike that killed Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Asks Barack Obama: “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?” … Listen To Obama’s Defensive Answer
FROM THE FAILURE IN CHIEF, LISTEN TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA MORE DEFENSIVE AND UPSET WITH REPORTERS QUESTIONS THAN WITH ISIS …
How dare the media hold Emperor Barack Obama accountable for his failed policies, who do they think they are? Following Obama’s pathetic ISIS speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey, the King held court and answered questions from the minions. Many have been critical of Obama’s policies is dealing with ISIS, but is is startling that the liberal media is now taking the lead and posing some glaring questions to Obama. CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Barack Obama the question that pretty much all Americans have wanted to ask, “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?”
“Jim, I just spent the last three questions answering that very question, so I don’t know what more you want me to add. I think I’ve described very specifically what our strategy is, and I’ve described very specifically why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested.”
In response to Acosta’s question, Obama reiterated that the U.S. military could retake territory from the Islamic State, but the result would be occupation. An occupation, huh? Is this what this fool really thinks? So we are not going to destroy this festering cancer called ISIS because this liberal coward this it will be an occupation? Obama went on to say, “So we are going to continue to pursue the strategy that has the best chance of working, even though it does not offer the satisfaction, I guess, of a neat headline or an immediate resolution.” OBAMA, WHAT PART DON’T YOU GET THAT YOUR STRATEGY IS FAILING!!!
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta took an unusually blunt approach Monday in questioning President Barack Obama about why the United States has not destroyed the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS.
“A lot of Americans have this frustration that they see the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS,” Acosta said. “I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, but why can’t we take out these bastards?”
Obama, who was speaking in Antalya, Turkey, at the G-20 summit, responded that he had “just spent the last three questions answering that very question.”
Earlier Monday, Obama had defended the U.S. strategy against the Islamic State, which has largely focused on airstrikes, amid calls for deploying a large number of ground troops in response to the Paris terrorist attacks. Obama said a ground invasion would be a “mistake” because it would require using U.S. troops to occupy Iraqi and Syrian cities indefinitely.

Barack Obama Arrives Late for ‘Moment of Silence’ for Paris Attacks at the G-20 Conference in Turkey
OBAMA PROBABLY HAD MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO, LIKE FINISHING HIS ROUND OF GOLF OR HIS MEAL …
The optics are typical of this president. On Sunday at the G-20 conference in Turkey, Barack Obama showed up late on a moment of silence being held by world leaders to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. I am certain he will find someone to blame for his being late to this function. Had it been Obama providing an apology to the conference for the United States being responsible for the rise of ISIS and terrorism, I am certain he would have been on time.
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Reporters traveling with the president said Mr. Obama had not yet arrived when other world leaders at the G-20 conference in Turkey began their silent observance around a large conference table.
Mr. Obama walked in after they had begun, and took his place next to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
FROM BARACK OBAMA, THE IDIOT AND LIAR IN CHIEF WHO CLAIMS ISIS WAS THE JV …
Take a good look at the greatest failure that the United States has ever had the misfortune to be elected President of the United States. Barack Obama is a dangerous, EPIC FAILURE!!! Earlier in the day before the Paris, France radical Islamist terror attack, in an interview with ABC News Democrat media lapdog George Stephanopoulos Barack Obama stated that ISIS was “contained”. Well this might be the worst timed interview and one of the biggest lies from Obama’s lips. Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is contained and not gaining strength, tell that to the 129 innocent people killed in France on Friday and to those aboard the Russian airplane that was blown out of the sky last week by what all accounts was most likely a bomb of which ISIS has claimed responsibility.
ISIS contained, are you kidding me? Obama has been an complete failure when it comes to ISIS and has just kicked the can down the road to the next president. ISIS is not gaining strength … This brought to you by the liar who told the American people, If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. This from the president who cannot even utter the words, radical Islam.
Critics are lashing out at President Obama in the wake of the attacks in Paris on Friday for remarks he made to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos a day earlier in which he said that ISIS was “contained.”
“From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them,” Obama told ABC on Thursday. “They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria it — they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
The comment came just hours before the announcement of a U.S. airstrike in Syria that had targeted ‘Jihadi John.’ But the mainly symbolic victory was cut short following the attacks in Paris on Friday in which at least 127 people were killed.
HUH? … New McClatchy-Marist Poll, Socialist Bernie Sanders Has landslide Margans over both Donald Trump & Jeb Bush
IF THIS IS REALLY TRUE … THIS COUNTRY IS FINISHED.
As reported at The Hill, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41 and also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.
I, personally, do not believe Sanders would win any such match up, but this country elected Obama twice so who knows. Also, it almost seems impossible that Sanders is even going to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. But seriously folks, if this is truly what voters believe, then the greatest social, political experiment in democracy known as the United States of America is over.
In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.
The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points.
The huge Sanders advantage over Bush is new. In previous match-ups, the polling showed Sanders and Bush running virtually even, with Bush holding a 1-point lead over Sanders in most of the polls. Future polls will be needed to test whether the huge Sanders lead over Bush in the McClatchy poll will be repeated in future polling or whether the McClatchy poll is an outlier.
It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump that could be so huge that he would win a landslide victory in the presidential campaign, with margins that would almost certainly lead Democrats to regain control of the Senate and could help Democrats regain control of the House of Representative — if, of course, the three polls that show Sanders beating Trump by 9 to 12 points reflect final voting in the presidential election.
AND THESE FAST FOOD WORKERS THINKS THEY SHOULD MAKE $15 AN HOUR MINIMUM WAGE …
Simply unbelievable, sick and pathetic. A McDonald’s worker has been fired after a video was made public of the fast food worker threw water on a homeless man in Detroit. The McDonald’s employee tricked a homeless man into thinking he would get food through the drive-through and instead threw water at him as a friend video-taped the entire sick prank from his vehicle. UNREAL. It is bad enough some one would do something like this, but to then be so ignorant to have it video-taped. Who would ever hire this individual?
I just wonder if this story would have been made much more had the employee been white. Yes, the homeless individual was a black man. Then there is the other side of the story that fools like this fired employee think they deserve $15 an hour. Guess what Dog, you are nor getting zero!
Warning this video has graphic language, racial slurs.
A Detroit McDonald’s employee who tricked a homeless man into thinking he would get food through the drive-through and instead threw water at him has been fired amid outrage after a video of the incident went viral.
The owner of the McDonald’s on Grand River near Schaefer on the city’s west side confirmed in a statement today that the employee was terminated.
“I am very disturbed by the inappropriate behavior of this employee,” said McDonald’s franchisee Wise Finley. “This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable. This individual no longer works for my organization.”
Tasha Gray, executive director of the Homeless Action Network of Detroit, shared in the outrage over the video.
“I think we forget sometimes that people experiencing homelessness are just like you and I,” she said. “We have working families who just don’t have enough means to make ends meet. I like to tell my staff that we’re one missed paycheck away from homelessness.”
In the video, shot by someone in a vehicle at the drive-up window, the worker calls over to an elderly man he calls Willie, saying he was going to give him a sandwich. At first, Willie refuses and curses at the worker, but after the employee held up a sandwich for Willie to see, Willie comes over.
Then the worker tosses a cup of water on Willie while the driver in the car recording the video laughs.
Peter Robbins, Actor Who Was the Voice of Charlie Brown in ‘Peanuts’ Specials Pleads Guilty to Threatening to Hire a Hitman
I GUESS THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS AFTER LUCY PULLS THE FOOTBALL AWAY ONE TOO MANY TIMES …
59 year old Peter Robbins, the actor who was the voice of Charlie Brown in many “Peanuts” specials from the 1960′s pleaded guilty to threatening to hire a hitman to kill Sheriff Bill Gore. WHAT? I guess I missed that Peanuts special, Charlie Brown Hires a Hitman. Talk about a downward spiral. In September, he was charged with threatening the sheriff, a judge and the manager of a mobile home park. Maybe Charlie Brown needs more psychiatric help. However, I hope Peter Robbins has a roll of quarters and not just 5 cents.
A 59-year-old San Diego man who as a child actor did the voice of Charlie Brown in several “Peanuts” specials in the 1960s pleaded guilty Tuesday to threatening to hire a hitman to kill Sheriff Bill Gore.
Peter Robbins faces four years and eight months in prison when sentenced Dec. 7.
He told Superior Court Judge William Chidsey Jr. that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia.
“I’m mentally ill,” he said. “I’ve committed no crime.”
In 2013 he pleaded guilty to threatening a former girlfriend and the surgeon who did her breast augmentation and was given probation. He later was found to have violated his probation and served four months in jail.
Among his probation violations, prosecutors said, were drinking alcohol, failing to finish a domestic violence class and cutting off his GPS tracking anklet.
