World Leaders Differ On ISIS

British Prime Minister Cameron says the ISIS threat is “a poisonous ideology of Islamic extremism”. Clueless Pres. Obama says it’s political.

Why would President Obama deny that ISIS, alQaeda, all those cowardice cave men clinging to their guns and religion, is political and therefore requires a political solution? That there is no military solution and, btw, we don’t have a plan on how to deal with (terrorism) them. If that isn’t music to the terrorists’ ears, I don’t know what is.

Great Britain is learning what an open door Politically Correct driven immigration policy is getting them. Suicide bombers, citizens being decapitated in broad daylight. Unfortunately, President Obama is likewise genuflecting to the Islamic goons by ignoring border security here. Which begs another question. Do you think Obama has weighed the benefit of millions of undocumented democrats against the terror threat that exists? To put it another way, do you think Obama thinks that the sacrificing of untold number of Americans to terrorist attacks is worth the price for the perpetual Democrat control of government?

From the frame of mind of someone who wrote the book “Dreams from my (Communist) father,” I have no doubt that he thinks it is worth it.

As an aside, and not totally unrelated to Obama and terrorism, let’s review his actions of late.

  • Illegally sends reinforcements to the Taliban, ostensibly after spending a year in Qatar, by trading five of their top generals for one deserter.
  • Gives further aide and comfort to the enemy (that’s also illegal) by announcing that the US has no plan to deal with them.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling confident that this president knows what is best for America.

Somebody tell me, what happened to, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for”? (h/t to Rush Limbaugh for that one)

Obama Preps Legal Case For Extra-Constitutional Action

Just like his run-around the Senate on climate change, the lawless president demonstrates neglect of duty with this . . .the_beast_train_transporting_illegals_to_us

With impeachment threats and potential lawsuits looming, President Barack Obama knows whatever executive actions he takes on immigration will face intense opposition. So as a self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline to act approaches, Obama’s lawyers are carefully crafting a legal rationale they believe will withstand scrutiny and survive any court challenges, administration officials say.

Media note: notice the meme to remove President Obama from the responsibility of his actions. The key is transferring his name with “The White House” in anything and everything that HE does. The media continues to portray him as the outsider, trying to solve problems. Harken back to the previous administration. Not an article appeared that didn’t begin with the word Bush and, rightly or wrongly, everything that happened was hung on Bush. Following nearly 8 years of media pummeling going unanswered, this is where we are today. See the difference?

Pena Nieto Wins MRIOTD Award

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto thanked California on Thursday for improving the lives of illegals (he incorrectly refers to them as immigrants) from his country, including legalizing drivers’ licenses for “undocumented migrants” and making it easier for them to work and start businesses.

For Mexican President Nieto (and national Coyote) to thank a state in the United States for making it more tempting and so easy for Mexicans to leave their country, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Obama By-Passing Congress Again

Refusing to take no for an answer, Obama (not The White House, but Obama) is by-passing the Democrat-controlled Senate on a Useless Nations climate agreement.

King Obama is engineering a UN Climate Accord without Congress. As the media and Democrats in Congress marvel as the lawless Obama administration goes from “deeming” bills passed (ACA) to announcing at a SOTU speech that he’ll go around Congress, and now doing a retroactive re-write of an existing 1992 treaty instead of asking Congress again. Really?

Captain Obvious In The White House

In case you missed it, President Obama made a sobering statement about the beheading of James Foley by ISIS. He told the world what bad people they are. What he didn’t do is say what he is going to DO about it. This is as close as he came to a non-commitment commitment.

“We will be vigilant and we will be relentless,” he said. “When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done. And we act against ISIL, standing alongside others.”

Apparently, he is waiting for “others” to take the lead.

What he did however,  is immediately returned to the golf course. While our borders are open, the last thing this sorry excuse for a president wants to do is protect and defend the Constitution and the people of the United States. Here’s some great advice he’s not been getting.

From Mark Levin . . .

Selective Transparency For DOJ

michael-brown-memorial_voter_registration_booth

Voter registration booth at sight where Brown died.

“Transparency” has lost its meaning. At least where the government and the media is concerned. When there’s a great racial narrative going, like a White cop (or a “White Hispanic” community watch dude) shooting a Black kid, that’s all you need to pick that scab, again. Instant ratings for the media, and another opportunity to stir up racial unrest. With everything else going wrong in the administration, this is a distraction that was made to order.

(Update:8/18/2014, see voter registration booth where Michael Brown was killed)

So we now find out that the Executive Branch (DOJ) didn’t want the convenience store robbery video released. And the media complied. Even though they knew a video existed, there was no reporting about it. That is, until the police released it themselves.

What’s so bad about transparency? All we think we know about the Michael Brown shooting is that the cop wasn’t aware of the robbery that Brown committed fifteen minutes earlier. And, that Brown knew what he did fifteen minutes before coming in contact with the cop. Gee Mr. Media, any chance that something other than a White cop shooting a “gentle giant” may have happened?

Carrying a political agenda is one thing, but it becomes dangerous (in so many ways) when it is coupled with the “news” media. And, reason enough to be skeptical about anything that comes out of the so-called mainstream media.

Where’s The “Coalition of the Willing?”

Why is there no “coalition of the willing” to deal with ISIS and terrorism this time?

I’ll tell you why.

  1. President Obama hasn’t the stomach for it.
  2. No country in the world trusts Obama to do the right thing.
  3. No country in the world will put their troops under the direction of a Commander-in-Chief who works on a timetable instead of results. A commander who prefers to end wars than to win them. Nor one who gives dates for withdraw before the job is done. And who could blame them?
  4. Only a fool would partner with the one person most responsible for empowering ISIS and trust that he knows how to fix it.

Bottom line, Obama broke it. It’s his problem to fix.

The Militarization Of The Executive Branch

As dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams, further expanding the definition of their missions, military-style units from government agencies are wreaking havoc on non-violent citizens.

It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them. But what about the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service? All of these have their own SWAT units and are part of a worrying trend towards the militarization of federal agencies — not to mention local police forces.

Other agencies with armed divisions include the Bureau of Land Management, the Coast Guard, the National Oceanic and the Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Park Service, the Library of Congress, the Federal Reserve Board, and the National Institutes of Health. These federal agencies employ armed officers with arrest authority, according a federal report, which is based on the 2008 Census of Federal Law Enforcement Officers.

Allen B. West has an interesting take on this subject.

Enabled by lies and deceit, could it be that liberal progressive socialism only works by fear, intimidation, and coercion? Or is Obama more afraid of the American people than our enemies abroad?

I find it humorous that liberal progressives accuse their opponents of being fascists, but the liberals are actually the most intolerant and oppressive when it comes to free speech, expression, and petition of redress of grievances by the American citizenry.

It’s no secret that the federal government has been buying up billions of rounds of ammunition in recent years. And still is. What remains to be answered is, who is the Obama administration planning to wage war on? Why haven’t we heard some justification from the administration for the militarization of federal agencies that have nothing to do with law enforcement?

Is this what Obama meant when he talks about “civilian security?”
