Obama doesn’t have a strategy to deal with ISIS, but he does have a plan to cripple the American economy

Related Report: Second American Journalist Beheaded by Islamic State Terrorists

On Thursday, President Obama stepped up to the podium and offered a simple message about the United States’ strategy in dealing with ISIS: We don’t have one.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” the President said. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them.”

But, not to worry, Obama delivered a stump speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this weekend that proves he does have a plan to further derail the U.S. economy.

“There is no denying the simple truth: America deserves a raise,” he said to the crowd of A.F.L.-C.I.O. union members before touting his executive action that will raise the minimum wage for federal contractors from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour in 2015.

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the dueling priorities of the Obama Administration as it becomes clear the President is not particularly interested in dealing with foreign enemies.

“The President has come out and said he doesn’t have a strategy yet from ISIS,” Glenn said. “I have a strategy, and I mean this sincerely because it works. This is where I think everybody is in America. We see how well it works. You just have gun control laws in Iraq – and Syria and parts of Jordan and parts of Iran.

“You make the caliphate a gun-free zone, there won’t be a problem,” Stu added sarcastically.

Pat had another strategy that might be even simpler to implement given how well it has worked in Russia.

“What if they have a strategy where they really put the hammer down like they did in Russia and impose sanctions on – not ISIS – but people that ISIS doesn’t know… How about that,” Pat asked. “Like, if ISIS is from Syria, they… freeze the bank accounts of certain Syrians who know an ISIS person.”

All kidding aside, as the world waits to find out how the U.S. plans to deal with the threat of ISIS, the President spent Labor Day weekend speaking to union workers about the need for an increased minimum wage.

The New York Times reports:

Countering arguments that raising the minimum wage would reduce jobs, Mr. Obama said states that had not waited for the federal government to raise their wages had seen more job growth than those that had not raised their wages.

During his brief stop — he was in Milwaukee for about two hours — Mr. Obama expressed optimism about the nation’s economic recovery, emphasizing the progress made since the 2008 collapse…
“By almost every measure, the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office,” Mr. Obama said.

After a summer dominated by grim news at home and abroad, the president on Monday, the unofficial opening of the general election season, tried to refocus attention on an economic policy issue that could help his party. Democrats, wary of getting too close to Mr. Obama and his lackluster approval ratings, are fighting to keep control of the Senate in the midterm elections.

“He’s laid all the groundwork to say, ‘These people in fast food restaurants just need a working wage. So let’s give them a pay hike,’” Glenn explained. “Okay, Mr. President, are you going to pay for my burgers?”

Ultimately, with Obama’s logic in mind, Stu may have figured out the most optimal solution in dealing with ISIS.

“Talk about a way to kill ISIS,” Stu concluded. “You can pass a $15 dollar an hour wage in Syria and their economy would collapse.”

    “Obama doesnt have a strategy to deal with ISIS but……”

    Could someone at Beck’s mothership please inform him that ISIS is a direct result of US interventionist foreign policy???? ‘Question with boldness’, or continue using MSM talking points.

    • caleejr

      looks like someone needs to inform Obama

      • soybomb315

        Obama and the establishment already know – that was the intent

        What we need is someone to inform the masses…..

    • KrisGifford

      Yes ISIS is a direct result of U.S. foreign policy UNDER OBAMA!

    • Barney

      I’m sure he is well aware. So moving forward what do you suggest? Isolationism? If so, do you think that is going to stop them from attacking us? I personally think we need to pull back and let the UN handle the world. The world isn’t going to be pretty if we do, but then we can at least say our hands are clean.

      • soybomb315

        We could start by stopping what we are doing – that was the point in the video (did you watch it?).

        How come people like you act like ‘isolationism’ is our only alternative choice??? That is like the liberals who say we can only choose big government or anarchy….

        • Pachy Serrano

          Well . . Libertarians like “isolationism” as well and they are conservatives, so don’t twist it. Go ask Rand Paul supporters.

          • soybomb315

            perhaps you are not aware of the differences between ‘isolationism’ and ‘non-interventionism’…

            Unions and crony capitalists are more isolationist than libertarians. And Rand Paul is not a libertarian – he is a libertarianish republican.

          • ANTHONY CLIFFORD

            Don’t need to. I am a Libertarian. Isolationism, means that we stay out of all international affairs. Non-interventionalism, which is what most Libertarians are, is only getting involved if it directly serves our national interest to do so. Fighting wars for anything other than our immediate national survival is immoral.

          No, I did not watch the video but I can imagine most of it I have already read, watched or listened to. I don’t have time and I was/am at work. People like me (and people like you) have no clue what is going on. We only see what the propagandists show us on the tele and blog about online. But I hear you.

      • Greg Efta

        Barney, isolationism isn’t the answer. It was 100 years ago when we could see the ships coming into the harbor, but today, with rockets, airplanes and other stealth types of attacks, there is no “building a wall around us” and protecting us. However, I think there is something to be said about not being the island out there “protecting the world” as we justify stuff. Here is ONE plan:

        1) NATO: Either eliminate it or force equal participation from all nations. I’m tired of paying for 90% of all of NATO’s protections. We’re already protected. Our allies need to step up or we step out.
        2) Secure the borders. Period. I mean “great wall of America” kind of security with shoot to kill orders at every post. You’ll only have to shoot a few of them and the rest will get the message. If you want sanctuary in America, go to the American Embassy in your country. That’s how it’s done.
        3) Cease all foreign aid. They’ll either use it to hurt us or to pay their share of NATO, which defeats the purpose.
        4) Zero deficit trade agreements. We won’t import more than we export to any nation. Simple. This applies to oil, as well. We will trade wheat for grease. If the Arab oil producing nations do not wish to purchase our products, we will stop purchasing their oil. We have plenty of our own, we just get in our own way pumping it out of the ground, but that is another rant in and of itself.
        5) Immediately mandate by constitutional amendment a complete and total audit of all government entities, including DoD and all agencies including NSA, CIA, FBI, TSA, Homeland Security (of which TSA is a part, I know) and every other lettered agency. Every cabinet member must submit a fully transparent reconcilliation of their Department’s finances within 30 days of the end of the fiscal year. Failure to do so means no budget. They operate on 30 days grace. Day 31. Done. This will force those agencies to dismantle ALL black ops and secret ops. This is why we are in a mess now, anyway. I’m tired of the insanity of shielded spending to fund stuff we shouldn’t be doing anyway. $500 for a hammer? Not likely.

        There are plenty more domestic pieces to this, but this would be a start on a foreign policy standpoint. Rant complete.

      ISIS is the remnants of Al Qaeda in Iraq. They saw Syria become destabilized from civil war, so it went there to exploit the situation. They got weapons and training from the US, because Asad is a bad man who needs to be dealt with. The brain trust that runs the state department and intelligence services didn’t think to vet whom they trained. So they gave training and equipment to our former adversaries in Iraq. Now they have rewritten history to say that they defeated the US military in Iraq, went to Syria to help their Muslim brothers overthrow an apostate. Both times they had very limited success. Now they are fighting the incompetent Iraqi government that we installed. They’re actually winning, which emboldens them to be more aggressive.

      The solution up until they declared war on the US was to equip the Kurds. Recognize Kurdistan as an independent country, and stay out of it. This is a big proxy war between Iran (funding Iraq) and The Kingdom of Saud (finding ISIS). Now that the Islamic State is a de facto country with a functional government they should be treated as a foreign country. The leadership of the I.S. made a declaration of war against the United States (due to US intervention in the conflict). This means that the President should go before Congress and ask for a formal declaration of war.

      • Elena

        Assad is a bad man, yes. But it’s not like he was bothering the US, Europe, or even Israel.

        Same was true for Gaddafi and Mubarak.

        We should have left well enough alone since we already got rid of the worst of them in Saddam, who at the time was only bothering Israel.

        You cannot fix islamic states. Islam is the problem. It tells you what time to rise, what prayers to say when, what to eat and when, how to wipe your behind. Islam does not allow for independent thinking. It requires a caliph — aka dictator — as its state ruler. Theology is the state and the state is theology.

        Leave the Arabs to their own devices. Stomp them flat when they get in your business but only then.

        • ANTHONY CLIFFORD

          You obviously didn’t read my post correctly. We shouldn’t have gotten involved in Syria. It only spurned more problems for us. Putin was right about Syria, and Obama was wrong. Now Putin is an A-Hole in his own right too, but he isn’t really causing real problems for us.

  • landofaahs

    I really wish the democrats would simply look at places like Venezuela and see how socialism is destroying that country. They have enough oil and natural resources that they should be a wealthy nation. But there policies have driven businesses out of business and have now attacked farmers who produce the food where now the stores are empty and people are starving. We will go down that road as long as we engage in socialism and crony capitalism where government uses their power to extort campaign contributions from business in order to not be pushed out of business. We will descend to the point where anyone who has a loaf of bread will be considered rich and greedy if he does not give it to the people who are the parasites sucking the lifeblood out of the nation. Socialism is coveting your neighbors goods and then breaking another commandment by stealing it. You democrats better wake up before you completely destroy the future of your children and great and great-great grandchildren.

    • Pachy Serrano

      Loco! I tell you again . . . we already have some kind of socialism in America, dump ass! Its call SSA, Medicare, Food stamps, Public Housing, VNA, etc. I know you hate it, but its there already. Its a reality . . . and you and your conservatism won’t close those any time soon. Just ask your mamma . . .

      • Greg Efta

        Pachy…. please do not confuse SSA and Medicare with welfare. Those are not government handouts, I pay 15.6% of my income for those programs. Get that…. I PAID for them. They are not on the same level as food stamps, public housing, etc. I agree, we have a horrific welfare mentality and welfare state, but throwing SSA and Medicare into the mix only muddies the waters. Other than that, I concur with your thesis.

        • Thomas L. Stafford

          Greg E, You mean you want to be Venezuela? Move there .

          • Greg Efta

            Thomas, I assume that since you are posting you are fully literate, in which case I would ask you to re-read my post. I merely pointed out the differences between those programs we have specifically paid into and those which are clearly welfare. Social Security and Medicare are not welfare, they are true benefits that we all pay into. They are not “taxes” that are paid to the public treasury for use to fund government spending, they are specific fees paid for a benefit. I guess it would be like calling you a socialist because you drew retirement from your 401k or your IRA. You sick commie buzzard… LOL. I guess you also missed the concept that I agreed with Pachy…. we already have a socialist state because of the other welfare “entitlements”…. Unfortunately, I realize that my original post may have been longer than you generally peruse, so you may have glossed over it quickly and not captured its intent. As this is even longer, I guess I am running the risk you’ll miss this one, as well, but I am willing to take that risk to better enlighten you on the content of the original post. Have a good day, sir.

        Yes you idiot and we have more and more socialism until the country dies. You are too stupid to legitimately have claim on the air you breathe. These programs are soon going to be over. You idiots never learn but hell is coming to breakfast and you dependents of the welfare state will be the first on the menu. Meanwhile I will help others move assets to places where thieves can’t get to it. LOL

        Social Security & Medicare is not “WELFARE”, Look at your paycheck, and notice how much you are paying toward your own Social Security and Medicare.
        You should be getting an Invoice every year showing how much you paid in and how much you will be getting back when you retire.

        • BlueMN

          That has nothing to do with massive defense spending and war after war on top of tax cuts for the extremely wealthy?

          • ANTHONY CLIFFORD

            Defense spending could be cut by about 50% an we would still have the best funded military on the planet. I’m on board with halving the DOD’s budget. I wouldn’t end tax cuts though. I would merely try to find a way to cut everyone’s taxes too. I think that means elimination of farm subsidies, food stamps, low emission vehicle rebates, subsidies housing, medicare, medicaid, social security. I could go down the list, but I think my point is clear. We spend too much on everything. The governments only real responsibility is to protect people and property from others, settle civil and criminal disputes through the courts, defend the nation, The protection of people’s rights and I’m okay with education.

          • Greg Efta

            Anthony, I am sure that if you read many of the above posts, you would have discovered that Medicare (not Medicaid) and Social Security are funds that individuals pay into directly; they are not welfare. This is an “insurance policy/pension fund” that every worker has paid premiums into. What do you tell the 64 year old who has paid into his or her social security “pension fund” for 45 years that they don’t get their pension because you don’t know the difference between welfare and benefit.
            Now, please explain how the $1 Trillion dollars the Department of Education has spent since 1980 has helped educate our children. Let me give you the facts. The US currently ranks 17th out of 40 industrialized nations in education (overall), 23rd in science, 24th in Literacy and 34th in Math! Oh, but we rank FOURTH in expenditures per student. Protect rights, leave education to the locals – get the feds OUT of education. As enumerated by the constitution (paraphrased) the Federal Government has the right to: Levy Taxes, Punish traitors and pirates, coin currency, form a military, make treaties, establish a postal system, declare war, secure trademarks, patents and copyrights, control immigration and bankruptcy. That’s about it. Return the United States to a constitutional authority and get out of everything that is not specifically relegated to the Federal Government to the states, as specifically identified in Article 10.

      Socialism has been tried in many places. It has yet to succeed when the population is heterogeneous and the nation physically large. It worked for a while in Denmark and Sweden. It stopped working with the importation of loads of poor muslims fm the Middle East and East Africa. The population lost its Danish and Swedish ethnicity and became multi-cultural.

      Wisely regulated capitalism is quite effective in bringing large numbers of people into the middle class. It looks messy on paper but works nevertheless. Unfettered capitalism serves the interests only of the top tier, although it also does bring large numbers of people into the middle class as well.

      Capitalism has been tried and works.

      We cannot depend on Arabs to get the job done. Their theology will not permit them to kill other muslims en masse. The Kurds and Turks are ethnically quite different although they espouse islam. They are more reliable allies than the Arabs are.

    The economy is doing just fine for some of us. The raise sounds like a blessing in disguise. While minimum wages go up the rest of the economy goes up which will.mean people will be looking for sales more than ever. That’s where my shop comes in. Yes, it might cost more to get inventory and supplies but more people will be coming in and buying since the prices I sell things for are guaranteed to stay as low as they’ve always been. In fact, if Amazon is going to maybe charge more for shipping my prices just might be even lower than they are already on a bunch of things.

    • ken.

      wrong!!! when the wages go up the cost of living goes up with it, putting us in the same place we were to begin with. except that it prices america out of the world market leaving us with less international sales, therefor with less sales of american products and making foreign products cheaper to buy both here at home and overseas, destroying the american economy.

  • JLWright

    Obama knows nothing about historical tribalism. Demanding 11 Islamic Ishmaelite tribes ( Gen.7:20) to combat the other ISIS tribe is as vain as early American settlers demanding moderate Indian tribes make war against any tribes that scalped settler men and kidnapped the settlers’ women and children.

  • Landree

    It seems obvious to me that the strategy to fight ISIS is to strengthen the Iraqi government so that its army steps up to fight terrorists in its own country while the US supports by bombing and drone striking ISIS. So, we find ourselves having the same goals as Iran and Assad. I think this plan makes more sense that borrowing a trillion more dollars from China for another 10-year ground war.

    It’s pathetic how Beck and his handmaids try to make jokes about subjects they seem to have little intelligence about.

    This is all on purpose and there won’t be anything better to make you feel the lie than a $15.00 wage at Mickey D’s and a $12.00 1/16 lb. Hamburger and a Coke and don’t forget the free refills , And no fries you no why .
    There is blood in the water YOU all know what happens next .

    The plans will be from the Lord. Can’t you see that something supernatural is taking place on this earth…First of all…In Acts Ch 1, angels spoke about the coming back of the Lord… 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” Matthew 24..42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Jesus said no one knows when He will appear…Second…Luke 21..34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” To ESCAPE ALL these things…Is what Jesus said, also 1 Thessalonians 1..how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who DELIVERS US FROM THE WRATH to come….Third…Christ on a White Horse Revelation 19…6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in FINE LINEN, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. In Revelation 22..Jesus says Himself…20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” So if the Rapture is at the end of the Tribulation, these things that Jesus said, could not happen. I believe that Jesus is saying that the CHURCH, THE SAINTS, THE TRUE BELIEVERS THAT ARE BORN AGAIN, will be going with Him before the signing of the peace pack with Israel. There are may more scriptures that I could put here, but I have taken enough room…Just be ready to go.

      Karen Rose, you are so right! Neither Obama, Hitler nor Satan caused dictatorial government problems – they are only consequences! Christian believers that don’t follow Christ are the problem – the same as the wishy-washy Christians in 1933 Germany. Neither Obama, Hitler nor Satan has any power whatsoever except for that which the people give them. Sodom and Gomorrah had better chances at success than America now has – for the same reasons.

      • Marjorie Collins

        Oh, my word! I have to add another “AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!” The Church (God’s people), except for a remnant, are the problem. The Church is asleep, falling into lethargy for the last 50
        years, especially in America. Karen Rose is so right on, and reading the Scriptures in her blog made me want to cry. It’s the Church that needs to wake up!

    • Marjorie Collins

      AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!

  • http://drudgereport.com/ Myles Standish

    I’m relatively certain that what obama meant, or wanted, to say was, “We don’t WANT to have a strategy.”

    • JLWright

      You are so right, No strategy is a strategy! Liberties are a gift from God and not to be violated but without His wrath. Silence in the face of evil is in itself evil. God will not hold guiltless. Not to speak is to speak Not
      to act is to act. Dietrick Bonhoffer

      • Marjorie Collins

        Absolutely! It infuriates me when people who are conservative say, “I just didn’t know who to vote for, so I just didn’t vote!” What? I’m here to tell idiots like that (which I have) that, “Not voting, is voting, only for the wrong person.” “But, oh, Romney being Mormon scares me!” “What?” I’ve said, “You’re voting for a president, not a pastor/preacher!” And I wanted to add, “stupid!” Grrrrrrrrrrr! I talked to people like that until I was blue in the face, to no avail. I’m not Mormon, but I love Mitt and Ann Romney……wonderful people! His dad, George Romney, was the Governor of Michigan, where I’m originally from, and he was an outstanding governor and did not bring into play on ANYTHING from his Mormon beliefs. But, now we need to move on and get a candidate that can beat Hillary Clinton, hands down. YES, to be silent and do nothing when evil prevails is to be guilty of the evil, like the citizens of Germany, when they began to realize what Hitler was really doing.

  • 13citizen13

    The “president” has done little/nothing to stop the march of islam, but fumed when Israel protected herself from terrorists. Blaming it on incompetence, inexperience, detachment, bored, doesn’t work anymore. Am I the only one who thinks (or will say) that he seems to be on the wrong side? Does anyone see him as a bigger danger to the US than isis, Russia, China, Iran, N Korea? I do!

    • olf

      He is not ours.

    • pfiffi43

      If you have Kerry saying that “global warming” is worse than radical Islam, than you can understand the mentality of people who lead this country. If it would not be so sad it would be laughable. I hope the Jewish people hear of it and will not vote for Democrats any longer.

  • Elena

    Isis — kill them all. There is the strategy. Now let’s talk tactics.

  • olf

    How is it that unions don’t get that higher mimium wage shoots them in the back too.

    • Soylent Green

      I understand that a lot (if not all) union wages are tied to the minimum wage. If the minimum goes up, union wages go up too. And it makes sense. Democrats have never given a crap about poor people except to use them. BUT, paying back the union vote is another thing entirely!

      • olf

        You are correct, unions don’t care about them nor does democrats. The point is at there will come a time when union wages will flatten out or decline as a result of it. Not to mention that the cost of everything will continue to rise. Companies are headed toward communist policies that drive up the starter wage is costing and or declining the wage of long term employees as well any chance of the upper wage brackets. It does not help anyone, especially the lower starter people that need training and experience in the business. It causes two or five year people to be at or very close to a worker with no experience or time invested with that company. And that starter person will pretty much get the same wage if he works one week as a person that has proved himself for five years. The whole argument is not fair to anyone much less the people it claims to help. Union people are going to take it in the shorts very soon. They just don’t know it yet.
        Watch and see. I’ve been management for over 30 years and I tell you, it coming. They are communist policies not American. FYI

  • http://www.mrchrisg.com/ mrchrisg.com

    He has a strategy. continue training, supporting, & funding ISIS with Saudi Arabia & Israel to get into a war with Syria…like he wanted all along.

  • Steve Politte

    Obama does have a strategy. He wants to help ISIS to find their way to the U.S. He has already done that with our borders. People have to remember who Obama really is. He’s not going to harm his own people. His ideology is to destroy our country. ISIS will help him to do that. You can’t listen to what he says, but watch what he does. Especially when he controls Congress. No one is going to do anything about anything, too busy campaigning to care about threats to our country and our citizens.

  • G….h.i

    Yet this guy is plotting and advising Obama on the Middle East. We have to worry about here and now because people like this is what is bringing this nation down.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/MohamedElibiary

    The muslim brotherhood is calling the shots here at home and people can’t figure out how to stop IsIs.

    O how we’ve regressed and become sitting ducks. Obama is allowing this to happen period.

    I’m serious after hearing of the latest beheading I became sick inside. The same feeling I had when USS cole and when 9/11 happened.

    Yet this president is calm and collective. He reads a few words from the TelePrompTer then goes off to play golf and campaign.

    All the while radicles behind closed doors orchestrate disaster after disaster.

    Christians are put on a terror watch list all the while we have one calling the shots in the White House.

    All of this will resort to us being controlled by even more government regulations.
    The news today was pathetic to say the least. CNN again suggested that Obama has no strategy because in their opinion no one knows how to stop IsIs.

    Funny thing to me we helped win ww2 and stopped the nazis. Yet we can’t seem to close our border to prevent jihadist from coming in to accompany the radicle muslims already here.

    Then to top it all off MSM is scratching their heads on the beheadings.

    Use to people took care of business and got down to the point. What have we become? How can we have a comeback as a nation?

  • Lgbpop

    Rather than trying to mandate a raise in the minimum someone can earn, thereby raising everyone’s costs, why won’t this mook do something to make the business climate friendlier and expand the number of skilled positions?

    Answer: To do so would put the lie to the BS we’ve been fed the past 5½ years. Why that should keep him from doing so, I don’t know. He has no problem lying about everything else, without a care in the world.

  • Yo Mamma

    The president has a plan for Isis. yes he does. He wants the crazy christians that frequent gun ranges like its the new family picnic in the park to go over there and teach them a lesson. That is, if they’re not recruited by isis beforehand.

    What the follower of the man from planet “Kolob” neglects to mention is -that just like in the wake of 9/11 -US news media seldom asked about the origins of Al Qaeda—particularly how it was a product of US intelligence agencies. the exact same now goes for ISIS

    The real juice though- is how The Caliph has now legitimized a discredited Global War on Terror to the uninformed masses-The Caliph is the new Osama.

  • jim

    The chaos enveloping U.S. foreign policy stems from “I have a drone” Obombers unwillingness to challenge Official Washington’s power centers which favor neoconservatism and “liberal interventionism

    at the core of Obomber’s muddled foreign policy is his unwillingness to challenge the prime sources of Middle Eastern instability, traditional U.S. “allies”: Israel and Saudi Arabia. Those two countries feed the violence across the region, Israel through its brutality toward the Palestinians – providing a recruiting bonanza for Islamic extremists – and Saudi Arabia via its covert funding for jihadists.

    However, because Israel and Saudi Arabia get a pass on much of what they do – and Israel in particular wields extraordinary influence over the U.S. political/media process – Obama has typically tried to finesse the chaos that these “allies” wreak.

    Here is also where the neocons and the “liberal interventionists” come into the picture. They demand that Obama react to “humanitarian” crises in disfavored countries, especially those on Israel’s “regime change” list, like Iran and Syria.

    A more cohesive – and pragmatic – approach to the world and especially the Middle East would involve repudiating the selective “responsibility to protect” crowd-the “morality” of the neocons and the “liberal interventionists” along with distancing U.S. foreign policy from the influences of Israel and Saudi Arabia.

  • jeananne

    Obama is rolling out the; “RED CARPET” on our southern border to let everyone into the country, then distributing those “ILLEGALS WITHOUT DOCUMENTATION” all over The Country, without letting residents know they are there …..
    The Mayor of Lynn Massachusetts has shared her concern about the newest “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS” that have been arriving in her community saying; “They claim to be under eighteen, with no documentation to prove that, who are sporting, (Gray Temples around their ears), and going into our school system”……
    Now that may sound innocent to most, but Imagine those supposedly “Gray Templed” men getting on Our School Buses with; “BACK PACKS” on their backs?????…………….
    You see, I was a School Bus Driver picking up students before the sun came up, not being able to see who was about to board my bus, there are no means of security on or around those buses, for those children or for the schools that the buses deliver to……..
    JUST SAYIN!!!………….
    Setting a Neighborhood Watch around the buses, would not hurt………..
    In fact, setting up neighborhood watches all over The U.S.A. wouldn’t hurt, as The U.S. Government is “ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL”…………

  • ken.

    obama and the democrats have a strategy to make deals with isis, helping them gain power. open borders and no deportations along with illegal aliens coming in expecting amnesty . the government has had more then enough votes to pass from both sides since bush was in office, but they never passed it because they never planned on passing it to begin with. they want as many illegals here as possible so when they say no amnesty the illegals will start rioting and join forces with the street gangs, drug cartels, terrorists and foreign governments to overthrow america.
