Obama Defends Islam, Smacks Israel, American Racism at UN

by Ben Shapiro

On Wednesday, on the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s speech to the United Nations in which he called for ouster of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, Obama attempted to rally support for his airstrikes against Assad’s terrorist opposition. Taking on issues ranging from Iran to Russia, from Ukraine to Syria, from global warming to Ebola, Obama pledged to utilize American might in service to the United Nations, speaking grandly of the beauty and power of the world’s least effective and most morally bankrupt international institution.

Obama opened with a Dickensian world of Manichean opposites:

Mr. President, Mr. Secretary General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen: we come together at a crossroads between war and peace; between disorder and integration; between fear and hope. Read more at breitbart.com.

Breaking: By Sharyl Attkisson, The Daily Signal

New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

BREAKING: Obama tells planet: Islamic State is NOT Islamic

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden meet with members of the National Security Council in the Situation Room of the White House. Sept. 10, 2014.

In his prime-time speech to the nation on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Obama vowed to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria with airstrikes and 475 U.S. boots on the ground – but he also made a particular point of declaring that the Islamic State terrorists “are not Islamic.”

“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”

He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”  Read more at: www.wnd.com.

Who is the REAL JV team?

WaPo gives Obama 4 Pinocchio for denying he called ISIS JV

Nine months ago, Barack Obama gave an interview to David Remnick of The New Yorker after ISIS, the very accomplished and high-achieving Islamic killing machine in the Middle East, captured Fallujah, an Iraqi city for which many very good American soldiers had sacrificed their lives and limbs taking from Sunni jihadists in 2004.

Remnick asked Obama about al-Qaida’s resurgence in Iraq. Obama responded by suggesting to Remnick that he had, pretty much, personally killed Osama bin Laden three years earlier and, pretty much, singlehandedly “decimated” al-Qaida.

Remnick pointed out to Obama that since he had ordered U.S. military forces to leave Iraq the al-Qaida flag was now flying over Fallujah. ISIS, regarded as an al-Qaida affiliate in Iraq, had since taken over the city. Read more at: wnd.com.

O’Keefe Brings Attention to Open Northern US Border

HOUSTON, Texas — Journalist James O’Keefe’s latest video brings attention to the lack of security along the U.S. border with Canada and the ability of terrorists to enter the U.S. by boat.

O’Keefe explains that Security experts say the rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq has significantly increased the risk of an attack in the United States. O’Keefe explores the questions, “If an ISIS terrorist could get to Canada, could he hire a boat, could he bring poison or even the Ebola virus? Could he get across Lake Erie and into the United States … and could he do it without getting caught?” Continue reading at Breitbart.com.

Obama: “I Should’ve Anticipated the Optics”

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, President Obama acknowledged that playing golf just minutes after addressing the nation about the brutal beheading of Journalist James Foley was a mistake. But did he concede that this showed disrespect to the Foley family? No. Did he admit that this revealed his lack of empathy and compassion? No. So what was his mistake?

Instead he said that he should have anticipated that hitting the links on Martha’s Vineyard just minutes after making that speech would be bad “optics.” In other words, that it would look bad, that the media would make him look bad. So what did Obama do right after taping the Meet the Press interview? You guessed it, he went golfing for about four hours, motorcade and all. How about those optics?

13 Hours in Benghazi

In a new special, Fox News Reporting: 13 Hours in Benghazi, Anchor Bret Baier talks with three contractors who were there when it happened – boots on the ground, if you will.  They talked about their experiences that night and how they are haunted by them to this day.  And they spoke about how they were ready to respond within five minutes, but were ordered to “stand down.”  They finally went in on their own against orders.  These three brave men who were wounded that night strongly believe that lives would have been saved if they were allowed to act earlier and if the air support they called for had arrived.

The three are featured in a new book, 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi  by Mitchell Zuckoff to be released next week. This Fox News special will be shown again on:  Saturday, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. & 9 p.m. ET and Sunday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m. & 11 p.m. ET

Say What You Want about Dubya, but He Sure Hit This Nail on the Head

Since before Barack Obama took office, he has been boasting about how he would end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home.

But his obvious lack of foreign policy and military expertise led him to leave Iraq too soon, and to do so out of political expediency. The evacuation of our troops in Iraq should not be a political move, but what is deemed wisest for our country overall.

And whether you liked George W. Bush or hated him, he was right about one thing regarding Iraq – a withdrawal of troops that is too rushed could completely destroy all the progress made in making Iraq a stable country.

Obama ignored this piece of wisdom, and the consequences couldn’t be worse for the United States or for Iraq.  Continue reading at: ConservativeTribune.com.

Megyn Kelly and Brit Hume Reflect on Obama’s Messianic Views After ISIS Beheads Second American

“Wouldn’t it be great for the world if I were president.” – Senator Obama, 2007

Just hours after ISIS Reportedly Beheaded a second American, Steven Sotloff, Megyn Kelly interviews Brit Hume on her Fox News show The Kelly File. In this two minute excerpt, they discuss then Senator Barack Obama’s Messianic statements made while campaigning for the Presidency, on November 21, 2007 on how he will win over the Muslim world.

Senator Obama: “…Well I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only does the country look at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently. If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world, they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian but I also can understand their point of view. I think that the world will have confidence that I am listening to them. That will ultimately make us safer…”

Obviously, things haven’t worked out quite that way.

The President May Not Have a Strategy, but John Kerry Does – Kiteboarding

By Patrick Hawley

Boy, that ought to scare the beheadings right out of ISIS!

Kerry spent Labor Day enjoying himself while the Obama administration still admittedly has no strategy for dealing with the threat of ISIS in Iraq. Kerry was last seen kiteboarding in mid-August in Nantucket.

Kerry’s last documented work-related activity was seen in the pages of Saturday’s New York Times, in the form of an op-ed entitled “To Defeat Terror, We Need the World’s Help: The Threat of ISIS Demands A Global Coalition.”

The Hell That is the Obama White House

By: David Horowitz – August 18th, 2014 at 04:58 PM

From Erick Erickson’s RedState.com:

Note from Erick: Please welcome to our front page the always awesome David Horowitz.

Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.

Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

Mark Levin On How ISIS Is A ‘Direct Threat’ To The U.S.

“I’ve been around awhile and I’ve seen a lot of presidents come and go, I don’t think we’ve ever had a more pathetic commander in chief in our life.  Does he not know what his policies are?   What are his policies? What IS his foreign policy?  Can his people even tell us what his foreign policy is, can he?  Can his Secretary of Defense, or Secretary of State?  Our enemies are on the move, they’re on the move because of HIM.  Not because of the prior president, not because of other presidents, not because of James Buchannan or John Tyler or anybody else – because of HIM.  He’s hollowing out our military.  At the same time he’s telling the world what we’re NOT goin’ to do, he’s playing golf, he’s on Martha’s Vineyard, he’s busy attacking Republicans.  The guy is, he’s not focused, he’s disconnected from reality.  We have a real problem in this country.” – Mark Levin

To the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Letter From an Angry Black Woman

‘You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes.’

By Chloe Valdary

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

• If you seek to promulgate the legacy of early Islamic colonialists who raped and pillaged the Middle East, subjugated the indigenous peoples living in the region, and foisted upon them a life of persecution and degradation—you do not get to claim the title of “Freedom Fighter.”

• If you support a racist doctrine of Arab supremacism and wish (as a corollary of that doctrine) to destroy the Jewish state, you do not get to claim that the prejudices you peddle are forms of legitimate “resistance.”

• If your heroes are clerics who sit in Gaza plotting the genocide of a people; who place their children on rooftops in the hopes they will get blown to bits; who heap praises upon their fellow gang members when they succeed in murdering Jewish school boys and bombing places of activity where Jews congregate—you do not get to claim that you are some Apollonian advocate of human virtue. You are not. Read more at:  tabletmag.com.

Amazing: Son of Hamas Founder Denounces Hamas

Son of Hamas Founder Mosab Hassan Yousef: “Hamas a Terrorist Organization With Humanitarian Face”

From TellMeNowMedia:  7-30-14 – ( Fox News – Sean Hannity ) – The son of the founder of Hamas was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the conflict in Gaza. “Hamas is not a national organization and it’s not a humanitarian organization. Hamas is a terrorist organization with a humanitarian face to it,” Mosab Hassan Yousef said. Yousef said that Hamas has hijacked the Palestinian cause to push its political and religious ideological agendas. He said Hamas wants to destroy the state of Israel and any country that does not believe in its ideology. “My family paid a high price for the sake of Hamas, for the sake of Palestine, and I grew up witnessing all the bloodshed and the dirty politics behind it,” he said on why he is speaking out against Hamas.

“The children of Gaza remind me of myself 20 years ago, how we were crying in the streets, not knowing what’s going on, and the politicians were sending us to death, and they were encouraging more people to die because if the people of Gaza and the children of Gaza stop to die, many people will be out of business,” he said.

Yousef said that he hopes President Barack Obama will make a hard decision and show leadership. He said Hamas must be disarmed to stop future wars.
