I Wonder How They Figured That Out

“Iran adviser says US has ‘no will’ to fight Islamic State”

th

Sec Def Carter said the Iraqis have no will to fight IS. Neither do American military leaders. Iran knows this. They will continue to take advantage of our reluctance.

TEHRAN, Iran — The chief of an elite unit in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has accused the U.S. of having “no will” to stop the Islamic State group after the fall of the Iraqi city of Ramadi, an Iranian newspaper reported Monday.

The comments by Gen. c the head of the Guard’s elite Quds unit, come just after U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter accused Iraqi forces of lacking the “will to fight” in an interview aired the day before.

It wasn’t clear whether Soleimani’s remarks came as a direct response to Carter’s, though tensions remain high between the two countries amid negotiations over Iran’s contested nuclear program.”

“Obama: No, Iran Won’t Be More Dangerous w/$150 Billion Dollars”

I think President Obama is out of touch with reality.

Said to be the smartest man in the world

Said to be the smartest man in the world

The Goldberg interview with Obama reads like a conversation with an idiot. Actually make that two idiots, both of whom are also compulsive liars.

One of the highlights of their insane exchange is when Obama tries to insist that Iran won’t be more dangerous if it gets another $150 billion.”

"Stupid Is as Stupid does"

“Stupid Is as Stupid does”

Within a space of several minutes, Obama has argued that…

1. Sanctions work against Iran

2. Sanctions don’t work against Iran

3. It doesn’t matter how much money Iran has because it will spend it on weapons anyway

4. If Iran gets more money, it will spend it on the economy instead of weapons

This is Obama’s insane Iran argument in a nutshell. There’s no central premise except that he promises it will work and then contradicts himself more times than a drunk trying to solve a crossword puzzle.”

Rename The NSA

NSA stands for ‘National Security Agency’. Their website says their goal is this:

The NSA/CSS core missions are to protect U.S. national security systems and to produce foreign signals intelligence information.”

Today we have a couple of stories that illustrate that the NSA has strayed from its goals. First there is this. It looks like NSA has been tasked with feel-good efforts to get Americans to recycle. Meet ‘Dunk':

As foolish as that is, we can double down. We know the NSA has been collecting electronic data within the United States. So far they haven’t caused too much trouble – that we know of – but other federal agencies have been targeting Conservative and religious groups. What reason does NSA have for spying on Americans?

Now, from the Times of Israel, comes this story. “IS claims it is ‘infinitely’ closer to nuking US”.

The article has a picture of Pakistani missiles but the text of the story says that the plan is much simpler. The Islamic State, sometimes called ISIS, has been using a captured British newsman to spread their messages.

British reporter John Cantlie

British reporter John Cantlie

Cantlie has been held captive by the Islamic State for over two years and has been used as a mouthpiece for the organization in a series of propaganda films published online titled “Lend Me Your Ears.”

Last week’s article, titled “The Perfect Storm,” suggested a “hypothetical” situation in which IS would transport the nuclear weapon to Libya, then across the Atlantic and covertly into the United States through a smuggling tunnel under the border with Mexico.”

Isn’t this the kind of thing the NSA should be protecting us from? Instead they are spying on Americans and pushing recycling. Perhaps they should be renamed. What do you think? Instead of NSA maybe they should be called the PCA… ‘Politically Correct Agency’.

“Stupid Is As Stupid Does”: Forrest Gump

“US Pressing Israel to Lose Its Nukes”

All the while the State Department has been negotiating an agreement allowing Iran to continue developing nuclear weapons. It’s plain to see where the Obama administration’s priorities lie. Actually, ‘Plain to see’ isn’t the best way to describe them. ‘Blatantly obvious’ is probably a better term to describe the disdain that Obama has for Israel. And ‘Disdain’ is probably not the best word either. ‘Hatred’ may be more accurate.

countryman

Assistant Secretary of State Thomas Countryman visited Israel, spoke to diplomats about making Middle East nuke-free.

Assistant US Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation, Thomas Countryman, recently visited Israel and held talks with senior Foreign Ministry officials, about the possibility of making the Middle East nuclear-free.

Washington seeks to advance the idea after reaching agreement with Russia about the matter.

The State Department confirmed Countryman’s visit and sources in the US Administration said that Israeli agreement to the idea would be a catalyst for bringing additional countries into discussions on the matter.”

Rhymes With Barf

Doing her best impression of Baghdad Bob, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf gave the Iraqi army props following the fall of Ramadi.

Never mind that Iraqi forces cut and ran, surrendering the city to Islamic State militants.

“The Iraqi security forces have held their lines on the outside of the city,” Harf told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Wednesday.”

“You ‘Must be Made’ to Obey”

obama brownshirt

You might enjoy this:

The time of which many of us have long warned is no longer on the horizon. The left’s full-on assault against freedom, most especially religious freedom, is at hand.”

While actions speak louder than words, words often predict future actions. Secular progressives’ words and actions rarely align. This is because the pseudo-utopian, wholly dystopian perch from which they view the world is so detached from reality that, from a cultural and public policy standpoint, they must disguise their intended actions in flowery and euphemistic language, or face near universal rejection.”

Quite insightful, this is from the site, Oregon Magazine. Here is a bit more:

Even so, it’s during those rare moments of candor that our cultural Marxist friends’ rhetoric actually aligns with their intended actions. In other words, every so often, and usually by accident, they tell the truth.

Take this recent declaration by President Obama at Georgetown University. He was discussing his contempt for conservative news media in general and Fox News in particular:

“[W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues,” he said.

How Kim Jong-un of him. In sum: Goal 1) Control thought by, Goal 2) Controlling the media.”

Zonation: Alfonzo Rachel On Michelle Obama’s Bitter Racism

This observation had to start from a man of color. Rachel has broken the seal. He correctly observes that Obama is what the founder of Tuskegee University, Booker T. Washington, warned Blacks against.

Remember, Michelle’s senior thesis, “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community”, was about unfairness to black people. Nothing has changed in her mind.

Islamic State Wins Big In Ramadi

You and I sent some nice goodies over there to help the Iraqi’s. Now ISIS has them all.

I wouldn't mind having a few of those crates.

I wouldn’t mind having a few of those crates.

According to an ISIS Twitter account these items were among the spoils of war that they captured:

Spoils of #Ramadi battle
-40 Humvees
-10 Abrams tanks
-A battalion of Howitzer artillery
-Armored trucks & ammunition
#Iraq #ISIS #USA

But the Obama administration is telling us that this is only a brief setback. Either they are completely disconnected from the reality of the situation, they are intentionally lying to us in order to try to minimize criticism, or both.

My money is on both – and more.

Good news? “Obama Changes Policy On Military Equipment To Police Departments”

Not yet. This is as phony as everything else he does.

This man's rifle and the vehicle he is sitting atop are not among the items banned

This man’s rifle and the vehicle he is sitting atop are not among the items banned

News media across the country is heralding the decision by President Obama to order the end of the process of sending military gear to local police departments. It sounds good when you say it fast but look at what materiel he has banned the transfer of:

Fox News: In previewing the president’s trip, the White House said that effective immediately, the federal government will no longer fund or provide armored vehicles that run on a tracked system instead of wheels, weaponized aircraft or vehicles, firearms or ammunition of .50-caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets or camouflage uniforms.”

According to the website of the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services’ Weapons page they have never offered either weapons or ammunition in cal. .50 or larger. They offer M-16A2 rifles, M-14 rifles and M-1911 pistols.

Fox Confirms US Was Running Weapons From Benghazi To Syria

fox - weapons to syria

Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.
Here is the transcript:

Sen. Rand Paul: My question is, is the US involved in any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?

Hillary Clinton: To Turkey? I’ll have to take that question for the record. That’s, nobody’s ever raised that with me.

Sen. Rand Paul: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? ANy countries, Turkey included?

Hillary Clinton: Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.

Sen. Rand Paul: You’re saying you don’t know?

Hillary Clinton: I do not know. I don’t have any information on that.”

She lied under oath. It is not the first time. She is unfit to hold any office in the country.

“US COMMANDOS KILL SENIOR IS COMMANDER IN SYRIA RAID”

They couldn’t have been wearing boots. The President has assured us that there will be no boots on the ground.

Image from the Barack Obama LieBarry

BEIRUT (AP) — U.S. commandos mounted a rare raid into eastern Syria overnight, killing a senior Islamic State commander in a firefight, capturing his wife and rescuing a Yazidi woman held as a slave, the Pentagon said Saturday.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the raid, identifying the militant as Abu Sayyaf. He said no U.S. forces were killed or injured in the operation.

A U.S.-led coalition has been striking Islamic State militants in Syria since last year, but this is only the second time troops have carried out a ground raid. A previous operation last summer was aimed at rescuing Americans held hostage by the group, but failed to recover any.”

Politico: “Obama Foundation girds for Clinton-like scrutiny”

The Obama Foundation wants to raise at least $500 Million to build the Barack Obama LieBarry on the south side of Chicago.

In light of the controversy around the Clinton Foundation, I think there are legitimate questions to be asked of the Obama Foundation folks about how it is that their disclosure policy is going to be enforced, who will oversee that and how they will be making sure that their operation doesn’t become a vehicle for undue influence,” said Steve Spaulding of Common Cause. “We can take it on faith, but self-policing only kind of goes so far. … Who’s going to referee this, be an independent arbiter and make the judgment calls about complying with the policy?”

Obama Exposes His Inner Dictator

Who does this lizard think he is? He is not Emperor Nero. He is a skinny black kid who has gotten everything he wants because of his skin tone and his willingness to use and abuse that fact.

“‘WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE HOW THE MEDIA REPORTS’”

Obama-59-Thumbnail

For going on seven years we have learned three things about President Obama: 1) He loves the poor so much he continues to create more of them. 2) He loves the poor so much he does everything in his power to keep them poor. 3) He doesn’t see the opposition as loyal, but as bad players — his enemy. This is especially true of Fox News, which Obama ripped as anti-poor bigots during a Wednesday afternoon summit on poverty.

We’re used to this Obama, the forever-partisan who has never seen himself as president of all the people but only of those who worship him.

What was most revealing about the president’s comments was his expressed desire to “change how the media reports.”

Yeah. Trains Are Safer Than Pipelines

That’s what Barack Obama’s buddy Warren Buffet would like you to believe.

buffet obama

We’re not supposed to pay any attention to the fact that Buffet owns so many railway oil tankers. He makes a ton of money transporting oil in them. We’re also not supposed to notice all the railway accidents.

Today we learned about an Amtrak train that derailed in Philly killing six people.

I could go on but it’s not necessary. All these accidents are being ignored by media and the Obama administration in an effort to block construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Now look at this image:

That is the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline. It’s 700 mile long, was built in the 1970’s – 40 years ago – and has never spilled a drop.

Why do we continue to ship oil by rail?

I wonder. What could it have held her back from accomplishing? What, exactly, has she accomplished?

“New Jersey Interrogates Homeschoolers, Lawsuit Follows”

I began hearing about this interference recently. The state of Washington is starting with child care companies, forcing them to follow strict regulations written by state bureaucrats. The children must receive the proper indoctrination, you see. Later they will deal with schools, and especially home-schoolers.

They do want to know if you have guns in the home.

A $60 Million lawsuit is a nice response.

obama brownshirt

A New Jersey family is suing the state child-protection agency after it allegedly sent a caseworker to their home to interrogate them on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.

Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole of Belvidere filed a civil rights complaint in April in U.S. District Court in Trenton alleging “unlawful and unconstitutional home intrusion.”

He said Michelle Marchese, a caseworker for the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency, demanded she be let inside the house, “Now!” according to court documents. Startled by the aggressive confrontation, Christopher Zimmer asked the purpose of her visit.

Marchese refused to answer the question, saying only that 15-year-old Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education” and she was at the Zimmer home under the authority of DCP&P to make sure they were homeschooling their son “correctly,” the suit states.

Not knowing the extent of his rights, Christopher Zimmer phoned local police. The police arrived on the scene but allowed Marchese to enter the home and continue to issue threats to the family and inspect the house, all without a warrant, the lawsuit states.”

“Republicans Who Voted For Loretta Lynch Voted For The Abuse Of Executive Power”

“Mitch McConnell could have made a case against Obama’s overreach. Now, he’s complicit.”

Obama-McConnell-998x699

This is from The Federalist. I agree with it.

Americans voted to give control of the Congress to Republicans. They promised to fight the leftists and to oppose executive overreach. We didn’t trust them and now we know we were right. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have been caving to President Obama and the left.

It’s pretty simple. After years of griping about Barack Obama’s abuse of executive power, the GOP finally has a chance to do something about it.

So Mitch McConnell makes a deal: If Democrats agree to stop blocking a human trafficking bill over some boilerplate language regarding abortion funding—a position that made them look unreasonable—Republicans, with all the leverage imaginable, will help confirm another attorney general nominee who will rubber stamp the president’s many overreaches.

Loretta Lynch was confirmed in a 56-43 Senate vote. McConnell was a Yea.”

He didn’t want to be called a racist and a sexist for opposing her. So he voted to extend Obama’s reign over the Department of Justice. Those are cowardly reasons for taking the coward’s way out.

As you may know Washington passed a law last year that mandates background checks foe all gun transfers, even private sales. Since then there has been a lot of pushback in the community of gun owners. We reported on it here, here, and here.

Now Washington gun owners are planning an in-your-face rally in June. It’s called an Arms Expo. If you would like to attend here are the particulars:

Somebody Is Lying About The Iran Nuclear Agreement

Who do you think it is?

Here is how President Obama describes it:

Obama promised there will be “unprecedented access” to the entire supply chain.

Iran, however, says the inspections are all ‘Voluntary’.

Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) says:

Press TV: What do you think about the IAEA’s role in the implementation of the Joint Plan of Action?

Najafi: The agency as a professional organization, indeed, should do a professional work. It means — only from the technical point of view — reporting what has been done by Iran. Of course Iran under the Joint Plan of Action, agreed in Geneva, agreed to implement some voluntary measures.

These voluntary measures have been implemented, constantly, and it was reported by the agency, and confirmed and verified.”

The emphasis is mine for clarity. Who do you believe?
