UK PM Cuts Vacay Short to Take Decisive Action on ISIS; Obama Golfs & Raises Money for Dems

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. It was very telling when our President admitted that he had no idea how to handle ISIS. He gave a metaphorical shrug and went back to revel in the trappings and perks that come with the Presidency. Meanwhile, across the pond, UK Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short to address the growing worldwide threat that is ISIS. While Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short to deal with the Islamic State (ISIS) crisis, President Obama was golfing on Martha’s Vineyard. While Cameron took action, raising Great Britain’s terror threat to “severe,” Obama […]

Why Did The NY Times Censor An Anti-ISIS Ad?

Likely because the ad includes criticism of Hamas. Via Shmuley Boteach at Breitbart: “America reinforces its values and thus its security by being transparent about even the worst abuses of those values, not by hiding the evidence deep in a file drawer.” This sentence is from a New York Times editorial of 20 August, 2014. The editorial was written in response to a decision by Federal district court Judge Alvin Hellerstein forcing the Obama Administration to justify why it will not release approximately 2000 photos that allegedly document abuse by the American military and investigators in Iraq and Afghanistan, which […]

Report: ISIS Eyeing Mexican Border to Infiltrate America and Execute Terrorist Attacks

Hat/Tip to Hot Air. Even though our President doesn’t think ISIS is a threat to our homeland, a new report out is claiming otherwise. A report from Fox News reporter Jana Winter filed on Friday indicates that Islamic State fighters are eyeing the porous U.S.-Mexico border as a potential area in which aspiring jihadists can infiltrate the country and prepare terrorist attacks. Social media chatter shows Islamic State militants are keenly aware of the porous U.S.-Mexico border, and are “expressing an increased interest” in crossing over to carry out a terrorist attack, according to a Texas law enforcement bulletin sent […]

Obama: ISIS ‘Doesn’t Immediately Threaten the Homeland’

Hat/Tip to The Weekly Standard. Nooo! They’re just a tiny little Islamic Jihadist Terrorist Organization. Right? This President continues to display just how ill-equipped he is for this job. At a fundraiser last night in Newport, Rhode Island, President Obama played down the threat from the terrorist army ISIS. “We have to be vigilant,” he told the group of donors, “but this doesn’t immediately threaten the homeland.” Obama also claimed to be “seeing a change in the order in the Middle East.” He called it “scary.” The comments come after American journalist James Foley was beheaded by ISIS. “[I]nternationally, we’re […]

Having Failed to Learn From the First Debacle, Another ObamaCare Website Rollout Fails

You’d think the Obamacare brain trust would have learned their lesson. But, no, they rolled out a companion website to Healthcare.gov, and it failed spectacularly too. Another federal government-run website created under ObamaCare is suffering the same symptoms as the troubled federal health care exchange — grappling with delays, data problems and other hiccups as the deadline to take it public nears. At issue is a database known as the Open Payments website. It was created under the Affordable Care Act to shed light on the financial ties between doctors and pharmaceutical companies as well as device manufacturers. The transparency […]

Fantasy: Al Gore Says No Arctic Ice in 2014 – Reality: Summer Ice Cap 1.7 Million Square Kilometers Bigger

Hat/Tip to the Daily Mail. In 2007, he won The Nobel Peace and then candidate and US Senator, Barack Obama predicted doom and gloom concerning Global Climate Warming Change. The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. “The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,” he said. “It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.” Those comments came in 2007 as Mr. Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change. But the reality is that the ice cap is expanding. But seven years […]

Southern Utah University, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went to school, is stripping his name from one of its buildings after the city where the college is located got $40,000 in pledges in five days from people who wanted his name to come down.  The Nevada Democrat’s name had been put on the Southern Utah University Outdoor Engagement Center to honor the school’s famous alumnus, President Scott Wyatt told The Spectrum newspaper. Not long after, […]

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline   Being a self-appointed observer of the asylum we all have to live can be a daunting task. Although there are times when one can find humor in the observed insanity, more often than not the observations are unpleasant in the extreme. And, what could be more unpleasant than having to conclude from observing so much insanity that the irrefutable decline our once great nation is a permanent and irreversible. Think of the inertia in a spinning flywheel. For over a hundred years, the idealogues on the left have […]

Dependency Nation: More Than One Third of Americans On Government Assistance

. Let’s say Obama has a plan to build a permanent Democrat majority. A plan that will guarantee Hillary Clinton wins the White House in 2016. A plan which takes precedence over all other concerns, no matter what the cost to America’s short-term well-being or long-term prospects for security and prosperity. I suspect he (well, actually, Valerie Jarrett) does, and I’d say it looks something like this. Newly released Census data reveals nearly 110 million Americans — more than one-third of the country — are receiving government assistance of some kind. The number counts people receiving what are known as […]

Fox News Co-Host Refuses To Apologize For Saying ISIS Members Need “A Bullet In The Head”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Let me start out by saying that this is NOT about the religion of Islam, (though some would call it a cult) it is about ISIS and their cowardly acts of terror, beheadings and assorted war crimes. Andrea Tantaros was absolutely right in saying that the only thing the ISIS Jihadists understand is strength. She just happened to describe that strength as a bullet to the head, but that doesn’t make her any less correct. If Islamic Terrorists could be negotiated with, then Obama would known as the President who brought peace to the middle east. But […]

Map Of ISIS Activity In “Infidel World”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This map records ISIS activity. Some of the pins reflect the locations where ISIS members may have come from such as Douglas MacArthur McCain, who gets a pin for San Diego, although his “activity” was in Iraq and Syria. It is important still to note the areas from whence they came as they could be helpful to revealing pockets of radicalism. Click on the pins to see what kind of activity is related to that area. You can also click on the white key in the top left hand corner to scroll through all the possible activity. […]

Borg Collective Goes Co-op!

Prime real estate with a view! The Borg Collective have announced that they will be converting many of their “Cube” spaceships into co-ops starting next Spring. “I don’t have to tell you that traveling throughout space assimilating cultures is expensive” said the Borg Queen. Our ships don’t run on prairie farts and pixie dust.  They need a source of energy. Also our hive mind isn’t exactly bringing in any income.  It’s collective, socialist and compassionate but not a money maker.  So a change needed to be made.  Sources of income had to be utilized.  One day I was walking through […]

Why Doesn’t Israel Just Withdraw to the 1948 Borders: Must See Video

This is THE best video I’ve seen to explain the ins and outs of the Israeli borders, how they came to be and how important they are to the survival of Israel. Ever wonder why Israel doesn’t just withdraw to its 1948 borders, approved by the UN. Wouldn’t life be simpler? Wouldn’t the wars end? This video, by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, made prior to the current conflict in Gaza, sums up the perspective opposing withdrawal from the land won in the 1967 Six Day War quite well.   . .

Rutgers Pollsters “Stunned” American Workers Don’t Believe The Recession Is Over

Obamabot shibboleths meet Reality. Reality wins. This weekend, American workers will take part in a time-honored tradition, gathering around picnic tables and barbecue grills to talk shop. A new Rutgers University report on the American workforce in the aftermath of the Great Recession gives them plenty to discuss. American workers are “insecure, underpaid, highly stressed, and generally unhappy at work,” researchers found. The report, “Unhappy, Worried, and Pessimistic: Americans in the Aftermath of the Great Recession,” details the results of a national survey conducted by the school’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. Researchers at the university have been […]

Prayer for Injured Teen Sparks Atheist Outrage

Hat/Tip to Todd Starnes at Fox News. It Truly Takes a Special Kind of Evil to Threaten Americans Because They Prayed Over an Injured Child   At a recent high school football game in Florida, a player got injured and lay out on the field. His teammates took a knee and bowed their heads to pray for their teammate and friend. The injured player was on the ground being tended to by trainers and coaches. So the Seminole High School football team did what many football teams do. The teenage boys took a knee, bowed their heads and prayed for […]

Fort Hood Shooter Wants to Join ISIS

Hat/Tip to Catherine Herridge at Fox News. It is becoming increasingly clear that ISIS has reach into our country AND it is exercising that reach. The convicted shooter in the Fort Hood massacre has written a letter to the leader of the Islamic State saying he wants to become a “citizen” of the caliphate, in the latest example of the terror group’s reach inside the U.S. The letter from Nidal Hasan, obtained by Fox News, comes after two Americans reportedly died fighting for ISIS in Syria. Sources late Wednesday identified the second as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis. Fox affiliate KMSP-TV […]

Free Money Dumped From Helicopters: An Idea That Won’t Go Away

{I}n a country (and world) drowning with debt, there are only two options to extinguish said debt: inflate it away or default. Anything else is kicking the can while making the problem even worse. Zero Hedge It was none other than the renowned free market capitalist, Milton Friedman, who first postulated the idea that the Federal Reserve should just throw free money from helicopters and let the citizens gather it up and spend it to drive up demand. Friedman made this bizzare proposal (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) in a book he co-authored in 1963, in which he was explaining how the Fed […]

Douches Wild

“Obama simply decided to trade in Jeremiah Wright for someone objectively worse: Al Sharpton. Wright was a divisive, racialist demagogue, no question, but I’m unaware of anything in the Chicago preacher’s past that rises to the level of Sharpton’s behavior, past or present.” – John Nolte The worldview of Barack Obama has always been shaped by a wrecking crew of assorted communists, socialists, Islamists, pacifists, and perverts, so it should come as no great surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention over the last 6+ years that in matters of race, he has taken to relying on the inflammatory advice […]

Al Qaeda to ISIS: What Blows Up In Vegas, Stays In Vegas

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. It’s no secret that ISIS is the richest, best funded terrorist group on the planet. Now they’re even making their aspirations public. A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent. The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” […]

OBAMA: ‘We Don’t Have a Strategy Yet’ on ISIS

Hat/Tip to Business Insider. Quick with a blame-Russia statement and then admitting he has no idea how to handle ISIS, President Obama addressed the White House Press Corps. …President Barack Obama addressed a pair of worsening world crises Thursday afternoon, blaming Russia for escalating violence in eastern regions of Ukraine and admitting he doesn’t yet have a strategy to confront the extremist group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (also ISIS or ISIL).
