It’s Monday; Have You Played Your Daily 18 Holes Yet?

Yeah, me neither. But one Nobel Peace prizewinner has, for the 198th time since he was elected to the toughest job on Earth.

But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy. He’s been very busy ignoring a terrorist attack and beheading in America’s heartland just a few days ago. From Laughing Conservative:

It’s been three days since Jah’Keem Yisrael — AKA Alton Noel — perpetrated a horrific terrorist attack on 54 year old co-worker Colleen Hufford, stabbing her repeatedly and then sawing her head off with a knife, and we have yet to hear any acknowledgment from President Obama of the incident.
Why not? All the elements of an Islamic act of terror are present: the savagery, the shouting of Islamic verses during the act, the stated determination to carry out jihad, and a fanatical belief in Islam that, in his mind, justified everything. From a political standpoint, it’s a bad idea to bring attention to the attack. But we don’t pay presidents to do what is politically expedient. We pay them to lead. And leadership — so sorely lacking in this and many other incidences — is what President Obama is unable to give.

He’s also been busy bragging about how good he is while blaming the U.S. intelligence community for underestimating the ISIS threat.
Obama-on-60-Minutes-02
What I don’t understand is how he can claim that when he’s missed almost every national security briefing ever prepared for him. How would he know? He has no idea what they’ve been trying to warn him about. How could he? He doesn’t read their reports. Even when he does, he disagrees with their assessments. I guess Barack has a lot in common with atheists. Both strongly believe that if they don’t see something, it doesn’t exist.

From Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just SEVEN MONTHS?

Well, only according to President Unicorn, who told us over and over and over that the death of Osama bin Laden and removal of U.S. troops from Iraq meant that Bush’s “stupid” Global War on Terror was over, Over, OVER.

Those of us who have been PAYING ATTENTION have known disaster was inevitable … just like we know the economy is headed for a great big, possibly fatal crash because of the Obamacrats’ out-of-control spending. But that’s another story.

Today, I want to share the 2014 Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer timeline.

  • On January 27, 2014, President Obama dismissed al-Qaeda inspired groups (like ISIS) as nothing more than junior varsity wannabes.

The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. … I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian,” Obama said in an interview with The New Yorker.

  • On January 28, 2014, Obama said we needed to get off a “permanent war footing.”

Four Months Later …

  • On May 28, 2014, Obama had to admit that, oopsie, these “jayvee” groups had indeed become Kobe Bryant.

As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacity of battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases,” Obama said at West Point. “And the need for a new strategy reflects the fact that today’s principal threat no longer comes from a centralized al Qaeda leadership. Instead it comes from decentralized al Qaeda affiliates and extremists, many with agendas focused in the countries where they operate.

  • On June 24, 2014, after ISIS captured Mosul, Iraq, SecState Kerry admitted this came as a big surprise to the Obama Administration.

We don’t have people embedded in those [Iraqi] units, and so obviously nobody knew that,” Kerry said on Fox News.

Yes, well, that’s what happens when President Ostrich insists we all play Let’s Pretend GWOT Is Over.

  • On July 23, 2014, an Obama State Department official said ISIS is a “full-blown army … worse than al Qaeda.”

It is al Qaeda in its doctrine, ambition and, increasingly, in its threat to U.S. interests. … In fact, it is worse than al Qaeda,” McGurk told the House Armed Services Committee. “[ISIS] is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a full-blown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.”

  • On August 8, 2014, Obama said the U.S. has a “strategic interest” in stopping them.

We do have a strategic interest in pushing back ISIL. We’re not going to let them create some caliphate through Syria and Iraq, but we can only do that if we know that we’ve got partners on the ground who are capable of filling the void,” Obama told The New York Times. (IS, ISIS, and ISIL are all the same group.)

These “partners on the ground” would be the coalition Bush assembled for his “stupid” war …

Those former allies that Obama has systematically ignored and disrespected since Bush retired? Those partners that Obama left hanging when he pulled our troops out so he could do his “I killed Osama” end zone dance again and again?

  • On August 20, 2014, after ISIS beheaded U.S. journalist James Foley, Obama called the group a “cancer” and SecState Kerry called them “evil.”

Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just seven months?!

Isn’t this like a doctor who ignored your symptoms until they had grown into a Stage 4 malignancy?

  • August 21, 2014: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says ISIS is “beyond anything that we’ve seen”

“ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything. And the only way you do that is that you take a cold, steely, hard look at it and … get ready.”

Oh, right. “Cold, steely, hard” and “prepare for everything” … you mean, like how BUSH did it?

My only hope is in Jesus

(This is a great montage of Gowdy’s Benghazi statements. The last cut is a tear jerker.)

Senior Airman Brian Kolfage is a United States hero. He is a triple-amputee veteran of the War in Iraq who has surpassed all odds and made the most incredible recovery of any veteran to ever survive his injuries. Below is his letter to Obama. It made me cry. My kids served in the Iraq War too. They came home whole in body, but many of their friends did not. I have very jumbled feelings about the idea that all their sacrifice was “wasted.” From an earthly, political point of view, that’s apparently true. But I try to look at the world through God’s view finder, where the point of everything is the salvation of individual souls. From that point of view, no act of kindness of self-sacrifice is ever wasted.

My Open Letter to Obama.

I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maseratis, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow, it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend Ivy League schools, and I sought out a military career to in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually sets the tone for what we will face later in life that will make us successful. I worked to get where I am today, and YOU WERE HANDED IT….Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected, which ultimately got me placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. I’ve never asked myself was losing 3 limbs in a war worth it, even though many Americans were against it.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor, would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqis invested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.

I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’t help but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again, all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, it’s water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures.

You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

The Bad Guys Come In

Fallujah without al Qaeda

Charles Krauthammer on “The O’Reilly Factor”

“[President Obama] said he ended the Iraq war. No. It was [General] David Petraeus who ended the Iraq war, and we won. The civil war was over. Al Qaeda was utterly defeated and indeed humiliated…

“We were in a position to conclude a strategic agreement where Iraq would have been our ally. [President Obama] had three years to do that and he failed…

“The fact is we’ve given Iraqi air space over to Iran. We’ve given essentially the running of Iraq over to Iran, because when we leave a place and we create a vacuum the bad guys come in.”

By wasting the sacrifices our troops made in Iraq, Obama has betrayed us in the worst possible way.

Democrats rush to war

Who is rushing

Senate Democratic leadership seem determined to toss aside Senate rules in its rush to cover Obama’s Morsi-supporting, Muslim Brotherhood arming, red line drawing backside.

September 4, 2013: The Senate Foreign Relations Committee narrowly approved a modified war resolution (10–7) with one member, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), voting present.

September 9, 2013: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is poised to bring the measure to the floor, then put the vote to the full Senate as soon as Wednesday, September 11, 2013.

AQ thanks you

According to Senate rules, hearings should be notified seven days in advance, business meetings should be notified at least three days in advance, and members should have 24 hours to consider legislative text before having to vote on it.

Not to mention that this coming Wednesday is the anniversary of the lethal 9/11 assaults on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, United Airlines Flight 93, and our embassy in Benghazi which were all perpetrated by the anti-American, Muslim extremists Obama has been funding, arming and is determined to send our troops to support in Syria.

2013_09 08 JW tweet = Syrian rebels take Christian village

At this link – Syria’s religious minorities fear the growing role of intolerant Islamic extremists fighting on the rebel side in the civil war against President Bashar Assad’s regime. Most recently, rebels led by al-Qaida-linked fighters seized control of the predominantly Christian village of Maaloula, forcing hundreds of residents to flee their homes.

2013_09 08 JW tweet = US loses leadership

At this link — Obama publicly set red lines for Assad, the Syrian ruler brazenly violated them, then Obama announced he did not need Congress’ approval to strike Syria militarily.

EXCERPTS from Community Organizer goes to war by Ann Coulter – Sept 4, 2013

No Republican who thinks seriously about America’s national security interests — by which I mean to exclude John McCain and Lindsey Graham can support Obama’s “plan” to shoot blindly into this hornet’s nest.

  • It would be completely different if we knew with absolute certainty that Assad was responsible for chemical attacks on his own people. (I’m still waiting to see if it was a Syrian upset about a YouTube video.)
  • It would be different if instead of killing a few hundred civilians, Assad had killed 5,000 civilians with poison gas in a single day, as well as tens of thousands more with chemical weapons in the past few decades.
  • It would be different if Assad were known to torture his own people, administer summary executions, rapes, burnings and electric shocks, often in front of the victim’s wife or children.
  • It would be different if Assad had acted aggressively toward the United States itself, perhaps attempting to assassinate a former U.S. president or giving shelter to terrorists who had struck within the U.S. — someone like Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist.
  • It would be different if Assad were stirring up trouble in the entire Middle East by, for example, paying bounties to the families of suicide bombers in other countries.
  • It would also be different if we could be sure that intervention in Syria would not lead to a multi-nation conflagration.
  • It would be different if we knew that any action against Syria would not put al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood in power, but rather would result in a functioning, peaceful democracy.
  • And it would be different if an attack on Syria would so terrify other dictators in the region that they would instantly give up their WMDs — say, Iran abandoning its nuclear program.

If all of that were true, this would be a military intervention worth supporting!

All of that was true about Iraq, but the Democrats hysterically opposed that war.

They opposed it even after all this was known to be true — indeed, especially after it was known to be true! The loudest opponent was Barack Obama.

  • President Saddam Hussein of Iraq had attempted to assassinate former president George H.W. Bush.
  • He gave shelter to Abdul Rahman Yasin, a conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
  • He paid bounties to the families of suicide bombers in Israel.
  • Soon after Bush invaded Iraq in 2003, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi was so terrified of an attack on his own country, he voluntarily relinquished his WMDs — which turned out to be far more extensive than previously imagined.
  • Al-Qaida not only did not take over Iraq, but got its butt handed to it in Iraq, where the U.S. and its allies killed thousands of al-Qaida fighters, including the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Iraq became the first genuine Arab democracy, holding several elections and presiding over a trial of Saddam Hussein.

Does anyone imagine that any of this would result from an Obama-led operation in Syria?
