Of Random Delis and Train Rides

“It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris …” [emphasis added]  – President Obama on the brutal murders by Islamic extremists in a kosher supermarket in Paris.

White House Defends Remarks That Jewish Market Attack Was Random Event

February 10th, 2015 • The White House doubled down on President Obama’s statement that the terrorist attack on Kosher deli in Paris was a random event. Fox News host Megyn Kelly examines the White House defense with Mark Thiessen and Mark Hannah.

‘If It Bleeds, It Leads’: Obama Says Media ‘Overstates’ Terror Threat

Unbelievable:  Obama refers to terror attack on Jews in a Paris kosher supermarket a ‘random’ shooting.

After President Barack Obama sat down with Vox editor-in-chief Ezra Klein to discuss domestic policy, including the “Balkanization” of the media, he moved onto to foreign policy with executive editor Matt Yglesias. This time, during a question about how the media covers terrorism, the president made a bold admission about how the war in Iraq affected our national security here at home.

Yglesias asked Obama if he thinks the media “sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism” as opposed to longer-term problems like climate change and epidemic disease.

“Absolutely,” the president responded, saying he doesn’t blame the press for embracing the old adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Obama acknowledged that it’s lot harder to make climate change or cutting infant mortality a “sexy story.”

But, at the same time, Obama said, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris. We devote enormous resources to that, and it is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to deal with that — the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down if he wants that city to thrive.” Continue reading at mediaite.com.

Benghazi Committee’s Democrats and Republicans Want to Question Hillary Clinton

By: @SharylAttkisson / February 06, 2015

The House Select Committee on Benghazi announced that both Democrats and Republicans want to schedule the appearance of Hillary Clinton “as soon as possible.”

But first, says Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the State Department must provide documents originally subpoenaed in 2013 so the materials can be reviewed in order to “constructively ask questions of Secretary Clinton.”

Among the materials sought: documents related to the State Department’s Accountability Review Board investigation and other relevant emails and documents in the possession of the State Department.

For the first time, the committee has also disclosed a partial list of executive branch, military, intelligence and State Department witnesses it intends to interview beginning as early as April 1. It includes Clinton’s top aides Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan.

OBAMA, Christians Are Just Like Islamic Radicals Who Burn People Alive

Barack Obama lashed out at Christians today at the Annual Prayer Breakfast.

The President used his warped version of the Crusades to bash Christians.
He also blamed slavery and Jim Crow laws on Christians?
Seriously?

The president:

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. And our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

The White House Won’t Reveal Who Attended Obama’s Secret Meeting With Muslim Leaders

The most transparent administration in history at work:

President Barack Obama reportedly talked to Muslim Americans about stopping the Islamic State and stopping anti-Muslim discrimination during a meeting at the White House Wednesday. He even apparently talked to them about Obamacare.

Citing privacy issues, the White House refused to identify the Muslim leaders who met with Obama in private. The meeting was closed to the press and did not include a list of participants.

“The President discussed the need to continue countering ISIL and other groups that commit horrific acts of violence, purportedly in the name of Islam,” according to the White House. Continue reading at theblaze.com.

White House Refuses To Call The Taliban Terrorists

Published on Jan 28, 2015 by L Sudvm

During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl engaged Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz in a line of questioning related to the Obama Administration’s release of five high ranking Taliban terrorists from the detainee center at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Karl was pressing Schultz to explain the White House position on not negotiating with ISIS terrorists for the release of American hostages while at the same time, negotiating with the Taliban to release Bergdahl. Schultz explained that there was no inconsistency in policy because the Taliban was not a terrorist group. He called them an “armed insurgency.”  Read more at truthrevolt.org.

 

Of Hugs and Friendship

I’m sure that the French people appreciate John Kerry’s hug and James Taylor’s singing of “friendship,” but maybe they should go hug and sing to the Islamic Extremists – I wonder if they’d  come back with their heads.

 

15 Clever Excuses Why Obama Failed to Stand Up for Freedom in France After the Terror Attacks

By Justin Charters, ijreview.com.

On Sunday, President Obama didn’t make an appearance at the mammoth-sized march in Paris to honor the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. The march was even larger than when people took to the streets after Paris was liberated from Nazi rule.

However, world leaders like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and even King Abdullah of Jordan marched in the pro-freedom demonstration.

The snub from the Commander-in-Chief generated the Twitter hashtag: #ReasonsObamaMissedFranceRally.  Here are just 15 of the clever excuses people came up with for why Obama was a no show.

I’d Rather Die Standing

“I am not afraid of retaliation. I have no kids, no wife, no car, no mortgage. It surely is a bit dramatic but I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.” – Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier, publisher and editor of Charlie Hedbo.

Will we ever learn?

Will we ever learn? Obama White House can’t admit Paris attacks ‘Islamic terrorism’

By Steven Emerson

They shouted in Arabic  “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is Greatest) and “We are avenging the Prophet Mohammed” as they sprayed their victims with hundreds of bullets from their semi-automatic weapons.

Their “victims” were the top editorial cartoonists of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, who had dared to practice their right of free speech.  Their offense?  Publishing cartoons deemed “offensive” by Muslim leaders around the world. The perpetrators? Islamic terrorists.

Yet in the immediate hours after the murders in Paris, the response from western leaders was scurrilously predictable in their refusal to describe the attack as an “Islamic terrorist attack.” Continue reading and watch video on foxnews.com.
