An EPIC Response to ‘Moderate’ Islam: “It Is Time We Take Political Correctness and Throw It in the Garbage”

Obama flirting Muslim world by Olle Johansson, Sweden from # 119360


By Max Slavo

Last week an extremist Muslim walked into an Oklahoma food processing plant and beheaded a former coworker. He was making his way around the plant looking for more victims when he was shot and stopped dead by an armed company official. Like the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood by crazed Muslim extremist Nidal Hassan, the Oklahoma incident is being investigated not as terrorism, but as workplace violence.

Finally! Goodbye Eric Holder

Eric Holder Jr from

By Alan Caruba

In a nation where there is a scarcity of good news, hearing Eric Holder give a farewell speech upon his announcement that he will be leaving as the Attorney General was surely welcome in some circles. I was never a fan of his because he was in my opinion always more of a politician than someone with the responsibility to enforce the laws of the nation.

I first took notice of Holder when, in Read More »

Whom Is President Obama Really Listening To?

Obama’s suit by Eric Allie,

By Silvio Canto, Jr.

Like some of you, I’ve wondered about President Obama’s inner circle.  I am not talking about the people with titles or all of ”suits” who move around with him from one place to another.

In other words, whom does he go to for advice, for geopolitical thinking or just plain common sense?  Whom does he speak confidentially with?  Does he call, say, President Bush-41 and get some thoughts about putting together a coalition?  Has he spoken Read More »

Obama Says U.S. Intelligence Underestimated Islamic State’s Gains in Syria – Newsmax  …  “President Barack Obama said U.S. intelligence officials failed to appreciate the gains made by Islamic State (ISIS) extremists in Syria during the last few years of that country’s civil war. I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,’ Obama said in a pre-taped interview that aired Sunday night on CBS’s ’60 Minutes’ program. ‘Over the past couple of years, during the chaos of the Syrian civil war, where essentially you have huge swaths of the country that are completely ungoverned,’ the president said, Islamic State was ‘able to reconstitute themselves and take advantage of that chaos.’”

“Obama also said the U.S. overestimated the ability and will of the Iraqi army to fight the radical Sunni group, which also controls part of northern Iraq. When asked if he was saying America isn’t really engaging in war, Obama said the United States is ‘assisting Iraq in a very real battle that’s taking place on their soil, with their troops.’ He insisted the airstrikes the United States is conduction is does not constitute war with ISIS. This is America leading the international community to assist a country with whom we have a security partnership with, to make sure that they are able to take care of their business,’ he said. This is not America against ISIL,’ Obama, said.”

Eric Holder Will Not Be Missed – San Diego Union Tribune  …  “Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to resign is welcome news to anyone who believes in the rule of law. Without Holder’s cooperation, the Obama administration would not have been able to execute its extraordinary strategy of simultaneously covering up scandals while depicting them as much ado about nothing. Holder has also fought the appointment of a special prosecutor to probe the Internal Revenue Service’s harassment of groups opposed to President Barack Obama before his 2012 re-election bid and the subsequent disappearance of volumes of evidence related to this abuse of power.”

A New Border Surge Opens Us to Surge of Epidemics – Investor’s Business Daily  …   “Secretary of State John Kerry warns of a new surge of illegals, just as Central America is being hit by a new wave of epidemics. No doubt about it: President Obama’s open-borders policy is exposing us to disease, too. The next wave may be worse than the first, however, because monsoon conditions, a harsh drought and the globalization of transport are ensuring that the 50,000 or so unscreened new entrants will be bringing a raft of new diseases with them.”

There is also a new virus known as Enterovirus D68 that is spreading among children across the U.S. It, too, has been known to afflict Central America in the past. All of this raises the possibility that in throwing open our border for political purposes, the U.S. is exposing itself to a host of nasty diseases and epidemics. It’s plain what’s bringing up this great wave of diseases: immigration politics. President Obama is so obsessed with winning Latino votes for Democrats by neglecting border laws that he’s unwittingly opened the U.S. up to a variety of third-world diseases.”

For Many New Medicaid Enrollees, Care Is Hard to Find, Report Says – NY Times  …  “Enrollment in Medicaid is surging as a result of the Affordable Care Act, but the Obama administration and state officials have done little to ensure that new beneficiaries have access to doctors after they get their Medicaid cards, federal investigators say in a new report. The report, to be issued this week by the inspector general at the Department of Health and Human Services, says state standards for access to care vary widely and are rarely enforced. As a result, it says, Medicaid patients often find that they must wait for months or travel long distances to see a doctor.”

Standards for ‘network adequacy’ have become an explosive political issue. Many consumer advocates want the federal government to set stricter standards. But many insurers say they have been able to hold down premiums by providing access to a limited group of doctors and hospitals. The Obama administration is caught in the middle. It wants to guarantee access to a wide range of providers while holding down premiums, which are paid by consumers and subsidized by the federal government.”

Holder Steps Down by Rick McKee, The Augusta Chronicle

By Investor’s Business Daily

Thursday marked a banner day for justice in America. On Sept. 25, 2014, the corrupt head of the Justice Department, Attorney General Eric Holder, said he’s finally stepping down.

Holder was the first African-American to be named the nation’s top cop, a welcome and poignant milestone in our troubled history.

But to the nation’s detriment, he proved a racialist and conducted himself in the most dishonest manner, enforcing the law for some groups and Read More »

Obama Lies About Climate, World Sighs

Volvanic Emissions Cardon by Nate Beeler, The Columbus Dispatch

By Ethel C. Fenig

Non scientist President Barack Obama (D) spoke at the UN’s so called Climate Change summit pretending he knew what he was talking about.  John Hinderaker of Powerline takes apart some of Obama’s major errors.

Five years have passed since many of us met in Copenhagen. And since then, our understanding of climate change has advanced — both in the deepening science that says this once-distant threat has moved “firmly into Read More »

Michelle Obama Shouldn’t Decide What Your Child Eats

Michele Obama School Lunches

By Daren Bakst

The primary focus of the federal school meal programs should be meeting students’ needs. But for that to happen, there must be recognition that parents — not the first lady or Congress — know what’s best for their children.

Unfortunately, the school meal standards that started to go into effect two years ago under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 ignore parents in favor of a federal government that thinks it knows everything.

Speculation Rampant on Eric Holder’s Successor – Newsmax  …  “No sooner had the resignation of Eric Holder been announced earlier today than speculation began over who would be the nation’s next attorney general. Much of the punditocracy seemed to settle quickly on California State Attorney General Kamala Harris, of whom an admiring President Barack Obama himself famously said: ‘…she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law and making sure everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country.’

One prospect whose confirmation would surely be contentious is Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole. When named to his present post in 2010, Cole was primarily known as special counsel to the House Ethics Committee during its investigation of then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich in 1996-97. Three other possible attorneys general are U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Jr. , who reportedly earned strong admiration from the President for his successful argument in the Supreme Court case that upheld the constitutionality of Obamacare; Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), a former state attorney general of Rhode Island; and Massachusetts’ lameduck Gov. Deval Patrick, a former assistant attorney general for civil rights.”

Cheney: Obama Won’t ‘Accept Good Military Advice’ – Newsmax  …  “Former Vice President Dick Cheney said that President Barack Obama ‘has consistently demonstrated…a refusal to accept good military advice’ while developing his strategy to combat the Islamic State (ISIS). The longer [American military action against ISIS] takes, the costlier it will be in terms of lives and treasure. When we did Desert Storm, we gave them the whole load the first night of the war. We pulled out all the stops in terms of using all of our capability,’ Cheney said on Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ Wednesday.”

When you have pinprick attacks as they were doing initially with respect to the air campaign, that’s what you get. You give the enemy time to adjust to go underground, to take care of protecting themselves from those attacks and they’re less effective when you telegraph what you’re going to do, and Barack Obama has consistently demonstrated, I think, a refusal to accept good military advice in terms of how he actually uses the force. Cheney added that Obama lacked experience and respect for senior commanders. ‘These are tremendously capable people…he certainly should listen to the senior military commanders who are responsible on the ground for executing on policy and take their advice occasionally. But almost always when the subject comes up, he nearly always rejects what they recommend.’”

The Air Comes Out of the Climate Change Talks  – Real Clear Politics  …   “Tuesday’s climate summit at the U.N. may well mark a turning point in the long-running talks as the reality sinks in that they are heading nowhere. Underneath the overheated rhetoric and the U.N. platitudes about acting together, the signs of failure are already apparent. The original intent of the summit was to put world leaders on the spot. With the eyes of the world upon them, they would feel compelled to make ambitious pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions that could be inked in to a legally binding text. Instead, the leaders that came were let off the hook. Now they are only expected to submit their proposals by March next year. All the talk was of reaching ‘agreement’ in Paris, which is a long way short of agreeing to a treaty.”

All these are signs of slippage. But it was President Obama who provided the most visible sign that the talks were heading in the wrong direction. Arriving late, the president looked as if he’d rather be anywhere else. The president’s tone in speaking to his fellow leaders and delegates was as if he were talking to a meeting of congressional Republicans. Five years had passed since the failure of the previous round of talks at Copenhagen, he said. Since then, the scientific understanding had advanced. What was once a distant threat had, the president claimed, moved firmly into the present, although the president did not mention that global temperatures have been flat for a decade and a half and that there had been little scientific advance to explain it.”

Press Helps Obama Censor the News – Investor’s Business Daily  …  “It’s not often that the press exposes its own bias. But a Washington Post story this week reveals both the Obama administration’s attempts to censor the news and the media’s complicity in that effort. For decades, news outlets have relied on pool reports from a rotating group of White House correspondents who follow the president on his travels to public or semipublic events and file quick-and-dirty reports. Their stories are then distributed to other news outlets to use as they wish. The catch is that the White House itself currently does the distributing of these pool reports to news outlets and government officialsleverage that Obama’s top press officials have used, the Post reveals, ‘to steer coverage in a more favorable direction.’”

“The story goes on to note that Obama’s press team has demanded — and received — changes to many pool reports before they would agree to send them out. Trying to censor the press is bad enough. But the fact that reporters have repeatedly and meekly acquiesced provides clear evidence of their willingness to put partisanship ahead of the public’s right to know. If you don’t think so, just try to imagine the White House press corps agreeing to such demands from any Republican administration. What other Obama censorship demands have reporters agreed to? What else isn’t the press telling us about how this administration is run? More important, why are we finding out about this only now, when it has been going on for years?”
