Flopping Aces

President Obama apparently believes that history is a lie agreed upon as he generates some “fake news” of his own, telling CNN that the rise and expansion of the Islamic State was “not on my intelligence radar” As the Washington Examiner reported:

President Obama admitted to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, in a TV special “The Legacy of Barack Obama,” that his administration underestimated the Islamic State terrorist group.

“The ability of ISIL to not just mass inside of Syria, but then to initiate major land offensives that took Mosul, for example, that was not on my intelligence radar screen,” Obama said in a pre-taped interview that aired Wednesday evening.

Well, in order to see something on your radar, you actually have to look at it, and the fact is that President Obama from the start ignored his daily intelligence briefings, including the ones about ISIS that he ignored for a year. Obama in fact midwife the Islamic State’s caliphate by ignoring its rise and pulling victorious American troops out of Iraq, thus creating the political vacuum ISIS gladly filled.  Obama argues that he didn’t have a status of forces agreement with Baghdad, but he doesn’t have one now as he puts American troops on the ground in an attempt to correct his mistake He willfully ignored intelligence on the rising ISIS threat.

Before the hyperventilating begins,  let me stipulate that neither President Obama or Hillary Clinton ever sat down with Islamic State chieftain  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and signed the articles of incorporation. But were it not for their actions and inactions in facilitating a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, creating vacuum ISIS would gladly fill, the terrorist groups’ caliphate arguably would not exist.

393 to 0: U.S. House Unanimously Declares ISIL Is Committing Genocide Against Christians

Mideast Islamic State

(CNSNews.com) – The U.S. House of Representatives voted 393 to 0 tonight in favor of a resolution declaring that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is committing “genocide” against Christians, Yezidis and other religious minorities in the Middle East.

The vote on the resolution, which was sponsored by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R.-Neb.) and co-sponsored 203 other members, brought together as broad a coalition as possible in the House. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (the chairman of the Democratic National Committee) joined with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R.-Texas) in voting for it.

In total, there were 229 Republican votes for it and 164 Democratic votes for it.

The House resolution declared that “the atrocities perpetrated by ISIL against Christians, Yezidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.”

BREAKING: U.S. Lawmakers Make Stunning Move To Investigate Obama For Helping ISIS

Conservative Tribune

Three committees in the House of Representatives announced Friday that they were launching concurrent investigations into allegations that President Barack Obama deliberately manipulated intelligence reports from Syria and Iraq, allowing the Islamic State group to thrive.

According to the Washington Examiner, Republican Reps. Ken Calvert of California, Mike Pompeo of Kansas and Brad Wenstrup of Ohio will lead the investigations for the Armed Services Committee, Intelligence Committee and the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, respectively.

“In addition to looking into the specific allegations, the Joint Task Force will examine whether these allegations reflect systemic problems across the intelligence enterprise in CENTCOM or any other pertinent intelligence organizations,” read a joint statement from Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Rodney Freylinghuysen, R-N.J.

The investigations by the House committees joined an investigation by the Pentagon’s inspector general’s office in relation to the Obama administration’s alleged manipulation of Islamic State group intelligence at U.S. Central Command.

Report: Islamic State Seizes U.S. Missiles in Iraq

Washington Free Beacon

The Pentagon acknowledged on Monday that Iraqi forces could have discovered a cache of U.S. weapons and missiles seized by Islamic State (IS) militants operating in the country, according to U.S. officials and regional media reports.

Iraqi forces combatting IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) are said to have found a stockpile of U.S. weapons, including ammunition and anti-armor missiles, hidden at sites controlled by terrorist forces, according to foreign military sources who spoke to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency. This is said to include a “huge volume” of advanced TOW II anti-tank missiles.

When asked to address the reports on Monday, a Pentagon official acknowledged that U.S. weapons had gone missing last year, but denied that the United States was intentionally arming IS or its affiliates in the region.

ISIS or ISIL?

Here is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL.

 

I have been curious about the term ISIL and exactly what it means.

 

ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north. 

 

ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” – and is basically the land along the Mediterranean – that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.

 

By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean – and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” – which is therefore part of ISIL. 

 

If you’ve wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially Obama calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world here’s the answer. 

 

Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. 

In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State. 

 

Have you ever wondered about that? Here is the difference: 

What makes up the near exact center of  the Muslim Levant ?  Israel. 

ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. 

 

Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? 

 

No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? 

Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. 

 

The geographical term LEVANT refers to amulti-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. 

If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess! 

 

It’s Israel. 

****When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State. 

 

Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS.

 

 

Listen as Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind.

 

And it’s working.

 

The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. 

With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change. 

The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.

 

Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully. 

 

“A Jew who votes for Obama is like a chicken who votes for Col. Sanders.”

Robert Spencer in PJ Media: Obama’s Freudian Slip was true

Jihad Watch

In PJ Media today I discuss a strange case of Barack Obama accidentally telling the truth.

Barack Obama, lauded for his allegedly spellbinding eloquence, sure makes a lot of verbal miscues: “57 states,” “my Muslim faith,” etc. If he were a conservative Republican, he would have long since been banished to the Dan Quayle Rest Home for Tongue-Tied Politicians.

Now he adds yet another to his Biden-worthy list: in his Pentagon address on the Islamic State (ISIS, or ISIL, as the president insists on calling the group) Obama boasted:

With the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.

In a clumsy attempt to repair Obama’s slip, the transcript at White House.gov added the word “Iraqi” in brackets after “ISIL,” rendering the statement incoherent. And that was that, except for the lingering impression that Obama’s words had left. This particular presidential slip, judging by his policies, was more Freudian than most.

Because Obama was correct: his policies have resulted in the strengthening of ISIL forces by supplying them with much-needed weaponry.

Jihad in America 2014

Jihad-in-America1

 

 By Pamela Geller

What a difference a year makes. One year ago, most Americans had never even heard of the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL). Despite this ignorance and the Obama administration’s prohibition of criticism of Islam, denial is not an effective defense. So the jihad raged on this past year, culminating in the mass slaughter Wednesday of a magazine editor and his staff in Paris because they mocked Islam.

Islamic jihadists were more active than ever in the United States in 2014. Most of the jihad plots and attacks were under-reported or misreported: in every case, law enforcement and government authorities ignored, denied, or obfuscated the guiding motive of each plot and attack: the teachings of Islam.

The most egregious example of this came in late September, when a Muslim in Oklahoma beheaded a female coworker at a food-processing plant and started to behead another before being shot. He had tried to convert coworkers to Islam and had a photo of a beheading accompanied by a Qur’an verse on his Facebook page. Authorities, true to form, refused to call it jihad or even terrorism.

Brother Rachid: A Message To President Obama From A Former Muslim

CFP

Brother Rachid, the son of a Moroccan imam, has posted a video called “A Message to President Obama From a Former Muslim” in which he attempts to give the President a crash course in Islamic studies. He begins by telling the president that he is wrong when he said that ISIL speaks for no religion. The former Muslim-turned-Christian further explains that terrorism begins in the schools and Mosques and must be cut off at the root.

“I can tell you with confidence that ISIL speaks for Islam. ISIL is a Muslim organization.”

I have had the opportunity and pleasure to meet several former Muslims in my lifetime and they make excellent and powerful Christians. It is a sometimes dangerous conversion as Islam calls for the death of all Muslims who leave the religion. Islam calls for the conversion, subjugation, or elimination of all peoples who fall under its control. Leaving the religion to join another is simply not an option in Islam and frequently leads to the death or imprisonment of those who decide that the teachings of Muhammad are not for them.

Politicians in particular insist that this is not a war of religion or clash of civilizations. We see an endless spewing of “religion of peace” quotes, diatribes on “a nation of immigrants,” and complaints about ethnic profiling at airports. I wish that someone would tell that to the enemy, for that is exactly the war that they are waging.

Is it really helpful to attempt to portray something as something it is not? Is it helpful to attempt to fool the public into believing something that is false or misleading? Are we to believe that there is in fact no direct link between the Islamic religion and terrorist atrocities?

1,461 Days of Summer: Obama’s endless second-term vacation

Family Security Matters

The headline was brutal. “Bam’s Golf War: Prez tees off as Foley’s parents grieve,” read the cover of Thursday’s New York Daily News. Obama’s gaffe was this: He had denounced the beheading of James Foley from a vacation spot in Martha’s Vineyard, then went to the golf course. Seems like he had a great time. Such a great time that he returned to the Farm Neck Golf Club-sorry, membership is full-the next day.

Technically, Obama’s vacation began on August 9. It is scheduled to end on Sunday, August 24. With the exception of a two-day interlude in D.C., it has been two weeks of golf, jazz, biking, beach going, dining out, celebrating, and sniping from critics, not all of them conservative, who are unnerved by the president taking time off at a moment of peril.

Destroy the Caliphate!

American Thinker

On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, the Islamic State posted a video on YouTube showing the decapitation of American journalist James Foley.  A second American, Steven Joel Sotloff, was paraded in front of the camera.  Foley’s executioner, totally clad in black and speaking with an English accent, stated “the life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.”
