Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
Assisting terrorists even worse than Assad has been American policy under Obama. Outrages indulged in by the lunatics attempting to overthrow him have included kidnapping nuns and orphans, beheading priests, crucifying opponents, and eating human hearts.
If you want to know what side Obama is backing with your tax dollar in any Middle Eastern conflict, just ask yourself who is most likely to be an existential threat to America, and you will have your answer.
Jordan’s reward for being a loyal ally and going along with this:
ISIS previously posted a video on YouTube threatening to move on Jordan and “slaughter” King Abdullah, whom they view as an enemy of Islam.
It would be hard to imagine what the objective of Obama’s Middle East policy might be if not to help create a vast and powerful caliphate under the control of al Qaeda types.
A Webster, Texas man says he was told by his apartment complex manager to take down his US flag because it was a “threat to the Muslim community.”
A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.
Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.
He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.
“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”
We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further.
UPDATE: The Lodge Eldorado has its own Twitter page.
Trey Gowdy had a defining moment when he had to explain to Congress and Barack Obama exactly what their job titles are supposed to be.
Trey Gowdy lead the charge in passing a bill that directs Obama to follow the laws – clearing the House by a 233 to 181 vote.
The FBI told a federal judge Friday that its page-by-page review of more than 80,000 pages of records from its 9/11 investigation turned up “no additional substantive information” about connections it has said existed between Saudis in Sarasota and 9/11 terrorist figures.
At the same time, the Bureau made public 31 pages of documents not previously released about the Sarasota Saudis, Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his wife, Anoud. The pages contain little new information.
More notably, the FBI’s extensive search failed to identify any reports generated by its own agents documenting the nature and extent of the Sarasota investigation, or its findings and conclusions. A law enforcement source has said agents found vehicle and phone records indicating the al-Hijji’s home in the upscale gated community of Prestancia was visited by 9/11 hijack leader Mohamed Atta, Broward resident-turned-most wanted al Qaeda terrorist Adnan Shukrijumah, and other terror figures.
ISIS terrorists have seized Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons stockpile at the Al Muthanna facility.
The weapons include: mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun and VX.
The Telegraph reported:
Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.
Here is the CIA’s file on the complex.
Quote Stockpiles of chemical munitions are still stored there. The most dangerous ones have been declared to the UN and are sealed in bunkers.
Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed.
These areas of the compound pose a hazard to civilians and potential blackmarketers.
Numerous bunkers, including eleven cruciform shaped bunkers were exploited. Some of the bunkers were empty. Some of the bunkers contained large quantitiesof unfilled chemical munitions, conventional munitions, one-ton shipping containers, old disabled production equipment (presumed disabled under UNSCOM supervision), and other hazardous industrial chemicals.

I’ve often said that political correctness is a barrier to truth and a door to tyranny. The latest proof of this comes by way of the Obama Administration’s US Patent and Trademark office. If you can’t bully, intimidate and strong arm ‘em into agreeing with you, then circumvent the U.S. Constitution altogether and force them into compliance.
It’s the “progressive” way.
The Washington Post reports:
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, calling the football team’s name “disparaging to Native Americans.”
The landmark case, which appeared before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, was filed on behalf of five Native Americans. It was the second time such a case was filed.
“This victory was a long time coming and reflects the hard work of many attorneys at our firm,” said lead attorney Jesse Witten, of Drinker Biddle & Reath.
Federal trademark law does not permit registration of trademarks that “may disparage” individuals or groups or “bring them into contempt or disrepute.” The ruling pertains to six different trademarks associated with the team, each containing the word “Redskin.”
“We are extraordinarily gratified to have prevailed in this case,” Alfred Putnam Jr., the chairman of Drinker Biddle & Reath, said. “The dedication and professionalism of our attorneys and the determination of our clients have resulted in a milestone victory that will serve as an historic precedent.”
The ruling does not mean that the Redskins have to change the name of the team. It does affect whether the team and the NFL can make money from merchandising because it limits the team’s legal options when others use the logos and the name on T shirts, sweatshirts, beer glasses and license plate holders.
In addition, Native Americans have won at this stage before, in 1999. But the team and the NFL won an appeal to U.S. District Court in 2003. The court did not rule on the merits of the case, however, but threw it out, saying that the plaintiffs didn’t have standing to file it. The team is likely to make the same appeal this time. Team officials are expected to make a statement this morning.
Whether or not you believe the Redskins should change its team name, you should be concerned by this troubling development. It’s a harbinger of things to come. The American free market and private enterprise are no longer free nor private. Liberty is under threat as never before.
Here’s to the good ol’ U.S.A.! We’ve officially become an Obamanation.
The Daily Sheeple
Critical thinkers and those people who don’t get the majority of their news from the mainstream media are well aware by now that Obama’s actions up to this point in America’s history have been worthy of impeachment for years now.
Yet he continues to completely ignore the Constitution and he continues to do so right in Congress’ collective face — as if even the ones who will openly admit Obama’s actions are in contempt of this country are all hostages in some backwoods basement somewhere tied to chairs without the ability to do anything about it but watch in horror as each new day passes.
The most recent Congressperson to come forward is Representative Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), who recently announced on News Radio 910 WSBA that there are likely enough votes in the House to impeach Obama according to The Washington Post:
