Obama may not be at war with the Islamic State; but, I’m going on record right now that I am!
I don’t intend to take a breather until the IS is vanquished and ALL the animals are with their 72 virgins.
Is this the first time that Obama and I have disagreed? Not really!
My battle cry: Could tens of thousands of Crusaders all been wrong?
Not from where I sit!
Yep, I was awestruck watching Obama’s farewell to the great unwashed before he boarded our helicopter last week to Martha’s Vineyard. He may not be any good at foreign relations, the rule of law, the economy, our borders or control over IRS and NSA snooping, but, I’ll give credit where credit is due. That man can vacation like nobody’s business. Think about it for just a minute. Gaza is on fire, ISIS is on the march across Iraq, even capturing territory south of Baghdad , or so I read in the blogs, the Ebola virus is laying-out Africa like hell won’t have it and Obama’s grinning like Alfred E. Newman as if to say, “What, me worry?”
Did you catch all the nuanced phrases in Obama’s speech like, “limited air strikes”? Here’s my take on limited airstrikes. Obama dictates rules of engagement that stipulate that our side must call the ISIS forces 15 minutes ahead of the strike and tell them all to slap leather and head for the hills. I know that you’ve seen photos of the air strikes all over the internet; but, have you heard any casualty figures? Of course you didn’t. Obama wasn’t after casualties. He was after a Hollywood-like production of what a war can look like. Put another way, do you really believe the press releases from the same Pentagon that wrote-off Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty on the night of 9/11/12 in Benghazi? A Pentagon that has been so politicized that morale among right-thinking service members is as low as it can get. Wait, I don’t want to test that last statement.
Shall we broach the topic of sending weapons to Sunni Muslim Jihadists in Syria during 2011 and 2012 out of Libya and through Turkey? That’s the CIA executed program that probably got Stevens, et al killed. But, in a dramatic turnaround, Obama is allegedly bombing Sunni Muslim Jihadists in Iraq! I guess Obama may be “evolving” on his views of Sunni Muslim jihadists? Certainly, Obama is not evolving! You can’t really expect him to launch a massive operation against those Sunnis Jihadists when he is a Sunni Muslim? Why do you think he’s always on the side of the Saudis? They’re Sunni. Besides, the Saudis dump crazy amounts of petro-dollars into the Democratic (and Republican) campaign hoppers. It’s hard for politicians to hate those guys! Just ask any past, present or future Virginia politician.
So, the beat goes on. The Saudis want Bashar kicked out of Syria so they can use the Sunni Muslim Jihadists bankrolled by the Saudi’s to take over the territory, allowing Saudi oil and gas pipelines to use that land route to Europe. Obama does what the Saudis say for all the wrong reasons. Putin wants a pact with Syria for the same reason. Putin wants to ship Russian oil and gas to Europe. Obama will even tolerate a war with Putin in the Ukraine, just to weaken Putin and prevent him from continuing to back Bashar Al Assad in Syria. Obama’s Saudi pals will get what they want and the Saudi contributions keep pouring-in to our political system. If there are a few million fewer Europeans as a result of the war, so be it. This is all about revenue production, not humanitarian idealism.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the great unwashed finally realized that our foreign energy dependence is the linchpin that holds together all these unholy, global alliances? The “greenies” have bought the Saudi-financed ecology campaigns hook line and sinker. If we used our own coal, oil and gas to light our homes and power our vehicles, we could count on our leadership to run America for Americans.
Ain’t that a novel idea?
THE UNITED STATES’ BIGGEST “ALLIES” ARE FUNDING ISIS
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar & Turkey all back terror group

President Barack Obama’s authorization of air strikes on ISIS targets in Iraq serves as an opportunity to remind ourselves which countries are bankrolling the deadly terror group.
The answer; Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey and Qatar – three of the United States’ biggest allies in the region.
Last night Obama announced limited air strikes to slow the advance of ISIS fighters and help members of the Yazidi religious minority group who were forced to flee into a mountainous region in the north of Iraq to avoid slaughter.
However, the administration has failed to put pressure on several Gulf states that are directly responsible for helping ISIS gain a foothold in Iraq in the first place.
As the Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin documents, “The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now threatening Baghdad, was funded for years by wealthy donors in Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, three U.S. allies that have dual agendas in the war on terror.”
In addition to funding itself through criminal activity and punitive taxes imposed on the local population on pain of death, ISIS relies on a steady stream of income from countries that have bankrolled extremist Islamists for years yet have faced zero backlash from successive White House administrations. Even evidence of direct Saudi involvement in 9/11 failed to generate any reconsideration of who America calls its friends.
“Everybody knows the money is going through Kuwait and that it’s coming from the Arab Gulf,” said Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.”
State backing for ISIS, now the wealthiest terror group in the world, prompted Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to point the finger directly at Saudi Arabia and Qatar during a France 24 television interview. “I accuse them of inciting and encouraging the terrorist movements. I accuse them of supporting them politically and in the media, of supporting them with money and by buying weapons for them,” said al-Maliki.
In failing to call these countries to account for funding ISIS, the White House has deliberately placed the importance of isolating Iran and Syria over and above the stability of the entire region.
The White House is also directly responsible for the spread of ISIS militants having backed other rebel groups in Syria which were once allied with and then taken over by ISIS.
Indeed, some evidence suggests that the U.S. even trained some of the Islamists who went on to join ISIS at a secret base in Jordan in 2012.
Aaron Klein was told by Jordanian officials that, “dozens of future 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.”
Yet another U.S. ally – Turkey – also trained ISIS fighters at a location in the vicinity of Incirlik Air Base near Adana.
According to a Shiite source close to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Obama administration turned a blind eye to the fact that Turkey was equipping and then sending fighters to Syria before they went on to Iraq. The source even went on to accuse the White House of being “an accomplice” in the ISIS takeover of major Iraqi cities.
Whether or not the “humanitarian” air strikes on Iraq are really aimed at stopping the terror wrought by ISIS, or are merely part of a ploy to create a justification for a long-awaited attack on Syria, the White House itself, as well as some of America’s closest supposed allies, all share some of the blame in aiding the growth of ISIS in the region.

I guess that the comments of one of Putin’s closest advisors about a coming war in Europe shouldn’t cut any ice?
What both authors miss is the fact that Obama and the Saudis are pushing for this war in the worst way.
Obama and his Sunni brothers want to defeat Russian if only to make future oil and gas sales to the European survivors of WWIII. Political payback, pure and simple!
Lots of Americans will be in camps by then, interred by the DHS which has become Obama’s private army.
Lots more of us will be referred to in the past tense.
This article and others on infowars.com have recently alluded to the theory that Obama will use the threat of an Ebola outbreak to declare Marshal Law. I thought that train of thought was pretty funny when I read that story(s) over the weekend.
I got up at about 0530 this AM, trundled downstairs, flipped-on the tube and watched a story on Fox being narrated by Kelly Wright. It was about the “panic” being felt “by many Americans that an Ebola outbreak was eminent.” Well, I’ll be damned, I thought. Who’s panicking? I looked out my front door to determine if crowds were gathering with pitchforks and torches out on Little Neck Road. Nobody there.
If anybody sees a crowd gathering in their neighborhood, text a picture to me, will you? I’d hate to miss-out on a full scale panic, especially one that allowed The Kenyan to declare himself King. The trouble with the history of Kings in North America is that it is short-lived. I wonder if they take history in the Community Organizing curriculum at Columbia and Harvard Law?
As it is presented in the above article, I wonder if the acid test of whether you’re in the grips of the Ebola virus will be a look at your voter registration card to determine if you’re registered as a Republican?
And what story was the lead at the top of the hour at 0600 on Fox? Why, it was all about the “panic” being felt by some Americans over the Ebola virus coming to America! Maybe there’s a bunch of sissies panicking on the streets of NYC outside the Fox studios? Who knows? I see that Dow futures are up 52 points. There doesn’t seem to be any “panic” on Wall Street, yet!
Let me know if you see signs of “panic,” will you?
I guess that I’d also appreciate knowing about US Army troops directing traffic at road blocks in your neighborhood as well! :-)
