ISIS atrocities pale when compared to those of the Masters of War
(KurtNimmo) – On Wednesday Obama went before the United Nations.
He promised the United States will destroy the Islamic State, which he called the “network of death.” He said its brutal activity “forces us to look into the heart of darkness,” a line his speechwriters lifted from novelist Joseph Conrad. Read the rest of this entry »

Reminder that US backed rebels are fighting against Syrian government, not ISIS
(SteveWatson) - The so called ‘moderate’ rebels in Syria who have received arms and training from the US, have condemned the US led airstrikes on ISIS extremists, underscoring the fact that their fight is against the Syrian government, not the terrorists the Obama administration claims it is funding them to fight.
The US-backed Harakat Hazm rebel group in Syria, which consists of an estimated 7000 fighters who have been given US weapons, slammed the US led airstrikes Tuesday, according to reports.
“The sole beneficiary of this foreign interference in Syria is the [President Bashar] Assad regime, especially in the absence of any real strategy to topple him,” a statement posted by the group on Twitter reads. The rebels described the airstrikes as “an attack on national sovereignty that undermines the Syrian revolution.” Read the rest of this entry »
(DailyCaller) - The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail.
“I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance.
Maverick PAC has described itself as a super PAC ”dedicated to inspiring the next-generation of conservatives, electing a new generation of conservative leaders, and sharing common goals and interests that will help shape the future of America.”
The source said Conway’s major concern was that the U.S. did not have a force on the ground in Syria it could rely on, like the Kurdish Peshmerga in Iraq. Though the Obama administration believes it can support what it says are moderate rebel forces in Syria to aid in the fight against ISIS, many critics warn that there may be no truly moderate force in the country of any significant strength.

(ActivistPost) - Later today, Congress (the House) is planning to vote on giving President Obama authority to arm ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels to fight (non-moderate) Islamic militants sometimes called, “ISIS” or “ISIL.” All of this despite reports that “moderate” rebel groups in Syria have recently signed a non-aggression agreement with ISIS.

(RealClearPolitics) – Judge Andrew Napolitano: There’s a view amongst the public that they are prepared to trade civil liberties for security because they have accepted what is in my view the myth that by trading civil liberties they will somehow be safer. The question I would like to see in that poll is, are we less free today than we were on September 10, 2001? And I would say that we are profoundly less free. Every single liberty guaranteed in the Bill of Rights has been violated with impunity by the Bush administration and by the Obama administration. Read the rest of this entry »
So-called “moderate” Syrian rebels are openly aligned with Islamic State militants
(PaulWatson) - President Barack Obama is set to announce his plan to combat ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria by arming so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels despite the fact that such militants have openly aligned themselves with Islamic State fighters.

“The sanctions we put in place against Russia are working as intended” – Barack Obama, August 6, 2014
(NowTheEndBegins) - In the summer of 2009, two dozen statesmen from Central and Eastern Europe issued a joint appeal for President Barack Obama not to forget the lessons of recent history. The White House had just rolled out its “reset” in relations with Russia as a centerpiece ofObama’s foreign policy. Flash-forward to 2014, and that reset, that “daring gamble” has proved to be yet another in a series of colossal failures of the Obama foreign policy. And now, it gets worse. Much worse.

There are about 10,000 to 12,000 regular Russian combat troops inside their border with Ukraine, Kirby told reporters at a Pentagon briefing, an increase from a few weeks ago but a smaller force than the roughly 40,000 that were there earlier in the standoff. Read the rest of this entry »

(NaturalNews) – The Obama administration’s war on carbon is advancing the battle lines to coal production, with a new proposal by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to attain a 30 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from energy production by 2030.

(SHTFPlan) - As the U.S. government pushes for regular mental health screenings for American citizens to ensure we are not terrorists and that we are capable of owning firearms or raising children, perhaps we should start at the top of the hierarchy – with the President of the United States.
He is, after all, the “decision maker” for our nation and is the sole person responsible for determining if and when the “red button” needs to be pushed.
But what if such a health screening determined that the American people elected a mentally unstable individual to its highest office? Read the rest of this entry »
Weapons are routinely transferred from “moderates” to al-Qaeda affiliates
(KurtNimmo) - Last week Obama took to his teleprompter to tell the American people the United States will provide lethal aid to “moderate” mercenaries fighting in Syria to overthrow the al-Assad government.
Obama’s declaration was nothing new. In September, the mercenaries said they were receiving weapons from the United States. Obama had promised the arms a few months earlier but the media insisted “U.S. officials are still grappling with what type and how much weaponry to send the opposition forces and how to ensure it stays out of the hands of extremists battling for control of Syria,” the Associated Press reported.
In September IHS Jane’s, a defense consultancy, estimated “there are around 10,000 jihadists — who would include foreign fighters — fighting for powerful factions linked to al-Qaeda.” Read the rest of this entry »
(PaulCraigRoberts) - At West Point Obama told us, to the applause of West Point cadets, that “American exceptionalism” is a doctrine that justifies whatever Washington does. If Washington violates domestic and international law by torturing “detainees” or violates the Nuremberg standard by invading countries that have undertaken no hostile action against the US or its allies, “exceptionalism” is the priest’s blessing that absolves Washington’s sins against law and international norms. Washington’s crimes are transformed into Washington’s affirmation of the rule of law. Here is Obama in his own words: Read the rest of this entry »
(WashExaminer) - In his highly anticipated new book and movie “America,” conservative author Dinesh D’Souza is warning that Hillary Clinton won’t be a clone of her moderate husband, but will instead take the baton from President Obama to continue radicalizing the country and “undo the nation’s founding ideals.”
“America — Imagine a World Without Her,” published by Regnery and set for release Monday, charges that as students of radical organizer Saul Alinsky, Obama and Clinton could have enough time to “unmake and then remake America” into a nation the founding fathers wouldn’t recognize.

President bemoans “lack of confidence in our government”
(PaulWatson) - During a speech at a fundraiser for congressional Democrats in La Jolla, California yesterday, President Barack Obama urged “wrongheaded” Americans to place more trust in the government.
Obama stated that a perception on behalf of middle class families that people in Washington did not care about them has reinforced “apathy or a lack of confidence in our government,” before he went on to blame Republicans for making Americans think, “they’re on their own and government doesn’t have an appropriate role to play.” Read the rest of this entry »
