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.

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 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? 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.

Watch ’till the end. It keeps getting better!
Dec.10 2014 RSS News: Troops are on heightened alert after the Democrats’ decision to release a report on the now-defunct enhanced interrogation technique program that was used in the wake of 9/11.
Megyn Kelly said tonight that President Barack Obama is defending that decision, demanding accountability and transparency, “to which some responded, ‘Preacher, heal thyself.’”
“It was important for us […] to recognize that part of what sets us apart is when we do something wrong, we acknowledge it,” Obama said.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the report demonstrates a commitment to transparency and accountability.
Megyn Kelly said, “When we in America do something wrong, we acknowledge it. We are transparent, accountable. We fess up so we can claim our moral authority, like when the president immediately came clean about his ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ promise? When he sold us the ObamaCare mandate by denying that it was actually a tax, as he went before the Supreme Court to say exactly the opposite? When his spokesman told us the White House did not alter the Benghazi talking points? When James Clapper lied about spying on all Americans? When Eric Holder misled about targeting journalists, like James Rosen? And then there’s the president’s 180 on immigration.”
Obama was pressed yesterday on his ‘180’ by Univision’s Jorge Ramos, and Obama “sidestepped” the questions, Kelly said.

Megyn Kelly faced off with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tonight over claims by former Obama Cabinet official Leon Panetta that withdrawing troops from Iraq may have caused the current chaos going on in that country. Kelly pressed Psaki on exactly why President Obama didn’t want to leave a residual force of several thousand troops behind in Iraq.
Psaki insisted that these accounts of what happened three years ago were not based on facts, arguing that the U.S. couldn’t simply force all those troops on a sovereign nation, and troops didn’t have the protections they needed.
Psaki also told Kelly that even if there was a residual force, “it would not have prevented” what’s occurred in Iraq over the past few months. Kelly just kept pressing her on why Obama isn’t accepting responsibility for this decision, when during a 2012 debate, he denied wanting a status of forces agreement.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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?
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
