So now I know how a Martian would feel coming to Earth and looking around. You see, I spent the last two weeks out in Central California, away from the coasts, trying a lawsuit. Some other time we’ll talk about how our legal system uses you non-lawyers like inmates use a handsome young lad on his debut trip to San Quentin.

In any case, now I have come home, plugged back in, and it’s pretty clear to me that America under Obama has gone completely insane.

That's not a subjective impression but, rather, an objective finding of fact. What's going on in this country right now is just plain nuts, and perhaps it takes stepping away for a little while and then coming back to look at it with fresh eyes to see just how far the madness has gone.

I see NBC news anchor Brian Williams has been bragging about looking down the barrels of RPGs and dodging floating corpses in New Orleans and all sorts of other badass stuff. Of course, none of it was true. Wouldn't you think that the few remaining ancients who still watch network news might expect more? Suspended shushmended. Doesn’t it seem a little crazy that this guy still has a network anchor gig to come back to?

I find it odd that a guy paid millions of dollars to tell the truth doesn't get fired when it's discovered that that's not what he does. I mean, Brian Williams has one job, to tell people the truth, and it turns out that he's just Bill Clinton with rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

The funny thing is that Brian Williams had nothing to be ashamed of. He went to Iraq. Good for him. That’s pretty cool. Everybody’s not Chris Kyle. I was deployed in a couple hostile fire zones, but I was so far in the rear with the gear that most the gear was in front of me. But I know guys who were really in the midst of the stuff, and some of them got hurt. Brave Brian's pathetic attempt to steal their glory doesn't make me mad. It makes me embarrassed for him. But then, as a conservative, I was born with a shame gene.

Naturally, the mainstream media is circling the Volvos to protect its poster boy. Apparently we are the crazy ones for expecting an anchor not to lie through his teeth to make himself look like a big man. No, the elite can't let Brian Williams fall. He's one of them. Plus his daughter is super special too. She’s conventionally pretty and mimes transgressive sex acts on another lying elitist's barely-watched TV show. These are our betters; we’re just too dumb and busy with jobs to realize it. We can't hold Brian Williams to lofty standards like “not lying all the time” – that's crazy talk!
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted Wednesday that President Obama's refusal to commit more ground troops to the fight against the Islamic State is prolonging the war.

"The other reason this is going to take awhile," Earnest said at the daily press briefing, "is that the president does not believe it is in the interest of the United States for us to commit all of our military resources to going in and solving this problem for the Iraqi people or for the Syrian people."

"The United States has the bravest most well equipped best trained fighting force in the world," Earnest continued. "It is a logical assumption that if U.S. military resources were committed and we were going to go in there and do this on our own, that the timeline would be shorter."

Obama is currently seeking an affirmation from Congress for his strategy against the Islamic State, even though the vast majority of the American people believe Obama has no strategy.

The White House has framed the resolution they are seeking from Congress as a "Authorization for Use of Military Force." But the White House again stressed Wednesday that Obama believes the existing 2001 AUMF already gives him every authorization he needs to fight the Islamic State.

Asked to confirm that the White House believes a failure by Congress to pass Obama's new AUMF would have "no practical impact" on his exercise of force, Earnest replied, "Well the president does believe that he has the authority that he needs to order the military actions that have already taken place. So the answer to your question is 'yes' because the president believes the Congress has already given him this authority."

Obama's AUMF does repeal the 2002 AUMF that President Bush secured from Congress before his war in Iraq, but it does nothing to change, limit, or repeal the 2001 AUMF that Bush secured before his war in Afghanistan.

Our organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) announced that it will be holding an exhibit of cartoons of Muhammad and a $10,000 Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. The exhibit will feature images of Islam’s prophet, both historic and contemporary, and speeches by internationally renowned free speech advocates.

We are going to need an army for security. Help us make this happen.

$10,000 Muhammad Art and Cartoon Contest to be Held at Site of ‘Stand With the Prophet’ Conference in Texas

By Bob Price, Breitbart, Feb 2015

Pamela Geller is planning a “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas in the same location as a Muslim group held a “Stand with the Prophet” conference in January. The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center, which is owned and operated by the Garland Independent School District.
Geller’s event comes on the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo in January. Following the attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) scheduled the “Stand with the Prophet” conference at the public school district’s conference center. Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scheduled a protest outside the event that was attended by approximately 2,000 people.

Jordanian columnist: The Islamic State “did not invent a new Islam”

The author of this article, Zaid Nabulsi, several years ago wrote a piece entitled, “Zionism is an Incurable Disease of the Mind.” So he is not exactly a sober, thoughtful reformer. And in this piece he is sure that the negative aspects of Islam don’t come from Muhammad, but he can’t seem to decide whether they originated in hadiths he considers inauthentic or in the theology of the Wahhabis. How the Wahhabis, a movement for reform and return to the original teaching of the Qur’an and Muhammad, got Islam so wrong he does not explain.

All that said, however, this piece is singular in its acknowledgment that there is indeed a problem within Islamic tradition, and that Muslims need to address that problem. That is much farther than the overwhelming majority of Muslim and non-Muslim analysts are willing to go.

“‘We have a problem,’” by Zaid Nabulsi, The Jordan Times, February 10, 2015 (thanks to Benedict):
Enough is enough. It is time to speak out.
“Islam is innocent” is an incomplete sentence. Introspection is needed, for, if we shy away from reality, the alternative will be more images like those we witnessed last Tuesday night, when brave Lt. Muath Al Kasasbeh was burnt to death in a cage.
The inconvenient truth that is overlooked or willfully ignored by apologists for the indefensible is the fact that Wahabism, the cult of mediaeval austerity founded by Ibn Abdul Wahab (1703-1792), has over the last half century been exported to every mosque and school throughout the Muslim world until it completely enveloped mainstream Sunni Islamic teachings.
Wahabism has entirely replaced, and become, Sunni Islam; the two cannot be told apart anymore.
Some Wahabist teachings, which have permeated the air we breathe in the Muslim world, are simply irreconcilable with decent human values, especially the ones that declare that every non-Wahabist is a disposable body whose bloodletting is unproblematic.
So enough of this burial of our heads in the sand. It has become tiresome to keep hearing the unproductive cliché that Islam is innocent after each atrocity committed by devout fanatics who did nothing except execute the exact letter of their textbooks, which order them to slaughter the infidels.

Over 20,000 Muslims from outside Syria have joined the jihad there

AFDI San Fran Moderate ad 9-8
20,000 refutations to President Obama, John Kerry and all the other leaders and elites who insist that the Islamic war made up of Muslim fighters has nothing to do with Islam.

“Over 20,000 Muslims from outside Syria have joined the jihad there,”  (thanks to Robert Spencer) February 11, 2015
“To underpin the dimensions of the phenomenon, the intelligence expert explains that ‘the number of direct foreign fighters in Syria is unprecedented’ and ‘exceeds’ that of those who have gone to ‘Afghanistan and Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia or other areas in the last 20 years.’” And “foreign fighters prefer to enlist among the militias of the Islamic State, seen today as more attractive than other...

Again Announcing Our Date of Withdrawal

By: Diane Sori

“It’s not going to be a source of terrorist attacks again.” 
- Barack HUSSEIN Obama's words on Christmas Day 2014 concerning Afghanistan...said just as the Taliban 'woke up'

OK...let's get something straight right up front...while NOT actually pulling the trigger, brandishing the knife, or lighting the match... Barack HUSSEIN Obama is most definitely responsible for the deaths of Americans Peter Kassig, Steven Sotloff, James Foley, and now Kayla Jean Mueller. Four Americans brutally slaughtered and all because this man announced our date of withdrawal from the Middle East theaters of war, thus allowing time for ISIS to be born and thrive.

And let's NOT forget Britons David Haines and Alan Henning, Frenchman Hervé Gourdel, and Japanese Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa...and there are others as well...including Jordan's fighter pilot Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh burned alive in a video seen around the world.

NOT soldiers but journalists, a mountaineering guide, aide workers, and civilian contractors, these people were murdered solely for either doing their jobs of reporting the news or trying to give aid and comfort to those caught up in the horrors of war. And even while most were sympathetic to the enemy to some degree all were beaten, tortured, and probably submitted to all things unspeakable before they died at the hands of the savages...yet still none had to die.

None had to die yet all did die and the man indirectly responsible for their deaths, upon hearing of said deaths, issued the compensatory 'America grieves with you' statement to the victims families as he headed off to play golf or to fund raise. Or he simply remained quiet...leaving the families alone with their grief...leaving a nation in shock.

Dead Americans and dead allies...a sad reality because this man announced our date of departure from the Middle East theaters of war. Remember, during his re-election campaign Obama pledged to "end the war in Afghanistan in 2014" but doing so NOT because we would win the war by then, but doing so for his legacy alone. And so on June 22, 2011, Obama announced for the world to hear...for the enemy to hear and plan accordingly...that 10,000 U.S. troops would be withdrawn by the end of 2011 and an additional 23,000 troops will leave the country by the summer of 2012. Saying that he is leaving roughly 10,800 troops behind until the end of 2015...down from 38,000 at the start of 2014...Obama plans to reduce those 10,800 troops by about half by the end of this year when a NATO-led mission... Operation Resolute Support...becomes fully operational. And Obama has stated ad-nauseum that he wants all American troops out of Afghanistan by the end of 2016 when he leaves office so he can pat himself on the back saying he kept his promise to end the war NO matter that heads will continue to roll...literally.

And on Christmas Day just barely two short months ago, Obama said that the U.S. is “ending our combat mission in Afghanistan” but that a number of U.S. forces would remain there “to conduct counterterrorism operations” against what he called the “remnants of al-Qaeda.” You know...the Taliban who laid low, regrouped, and were now back in full operational mode...just ask the families of those children slaughtered in the Taliban attack on the Pakistani army school.

And what of Iraq...'Bush's war' Obama loves to say...where ISIS morphed from 'al-Qaeda in Iraq' into what he called a “JV team”...a “JV team” of barbaric murderers, thugs, and savages. On December 14, 2011, Obama, in a speech at Fort Bragg, announced that he was pulling out the last of our troops from Iraq and that the U.S. was, “leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government.” Well that worked out real well now didn't it as ISIS just waited and bided their time until we were gone, and now that “JV team” has turned into the biggest threat the civilized world faces today. But I guess Obama fears his own head will roll if he dares to speak the truth about ISIS for ISIS' muslim blood flows through his veins as well.

So the man who believes that climate change is a far greater threat to this country's national security than ISIS and their ilk, has proven time and again that his ideology...his radical islamic ideology...has been successfully worked to made our beloved America weaker in the eyes of the world. 'Towing the line' by speaking the words of those out to kill us in his recent remarks comparing 11th century Christianity to today's ISIS along with him refusing to utter the must be spoken words 'muslim islamic terrorists'...lets 'We the People' know just where his true allegiances lie.

And Obama's NEVER doing what's in both America's best interest and in the best interest of securing stability in the Middle East region, has this miserable excuse of a president trying to cover his lies, his misspeaks, and his oh so liberal and very traitorous agenda in a cloak of deception that few president's before him have honed to such a fine art. And part of his current deception is his refusal to publicly state who is the chief money supplier...through private donations...of ISIS but then again Obama...good little muslim that he is and one whose ISIS policy remains but a policy of containment...must protect that country as it's home to islam’s...and his...most holy of in the Sacred Mosque in Mecca and the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina. And that is the predominately Sunni country of Saudi Arabia.

And while Riyadh lists ISIS as a terrorist group that poses a direct threat to the kingdom's security...Saudi's kingdom right now is in transition after the death of their king...a transition into possibly becoming more radicalized if the radical islamic faction of the House of Saud triumphs. And Saudi Arabia is followed close behind in funding ISIS by Qatar, Turkey, and Kuwait...Kuwait being the country all the money is funneled through. And remember, all are supposed allies...all are oil-rich...and all are stabbing the U.S. in the back with Obama's approval of course.

And let's NOT forget that Obama is directly responsible for arming at least part of ISIS' army starting with his Benghazi fiasco where he (I believe) was 'gun running' U.S. weapons along with sums of cash from Benghazi through Turkey to the anything but moderate 'so-called' Syrian rebels fighting al-Assad's government forces...rebels who were once merely sympathetic to ISIS but who are now actually part of the ISIS war machine.

So while yesterday Obama asked Congress to formally authorize war against ISIS in the form of a draft resolution to allow the continued use of force but one that will NOT authorize a ground war...the plan he presented was basically more of the same old proven to be ineffective systemic and what he claims is a "sustained airstrike campaign" in both Iraq and Syria. Saying he would only send our troops "into harm’s way when absolutely necessary for our national security"...a strategy that would ban the U.S. from "enduring offensive combat operations"...Obama just threw the brunt of the war onto ill-equipped and untrained local forces...threw it on them deliberately so that they would lose. Further saying that he is holding U.S. involvement to three years tops, Obama is basically passing the ISIS problem over to the next president to deal with. (article continues below video)

See video of Obama  asking Congress to authorize war against ISIS here:

Translation: this vile, cowardly, and islamic terrorist sympathizer of a man...the man who keeps calling ISIS 'ISIL' as a shout-out to the Levant...did indeed again announce the time frame as to when we will end America's involvement in this particular theater of war, thus giving ISIS time to lay low... regroup...recruit...and refill their war come back even stronger then before. To come back, kidnap, and kill even more Americans and American allies alike...all while he ever so happily heads back to the golf course. 

And any and all new deaths...both military and civilian...both American and allied...will again lie at the feet of Barack HUSSEIN Obama...America's very own traitor-in-chief.
