ISIS 'JV Team' Leader Designated 3rd Most Wanted Terrorist in 2011

Sep 30 2014 11:58am CDT | Source: Big Government

Earlier this year the President referred to ISIS as the "JV team" during an interview, but that designation is at odds with the placement of ISIS' leader near the top of the State Department's designated terrorist list in 2011. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has numerous aliases including Abu Du'a. In October 2011, months before U.S. troops left Iraq, al-Baghdadi was added to Diplomatic Security's list of designated terrorists. A reward of up to $10 mi ...

Who is the real JV team?

Sep 10 2014 6:52pm CDT | Source: WND

Nine months ago, Barack Obama gave an interview to David Remnick of The New Yorker after ISIS, the very accomplished and high-achieving Islamic killing machine in the Middle East, captured Fallujah, an Iraqi city for which many very good American soldiers had sacrificed their lives and limbs taking from Sunni jihadists in 2004. Remnick asked Obama about al-Qaida’s resurgence in Iraq. Obama responded by suggesting to Remnick that he had, pretty much, personally killed ...

(BUSINESS INSIDER) — At least one prominent fact-checking organization is calling out President Barack Obama for falsely claiming he “wasn’t specifically referring to” Islamic State militants when he dismissed them as a “JV” team. During an interview on Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama was pressed on the comments, published in a January profile in The New Yorker. In the piece, Obama was asked about the jihadist militants who had just captured Falluja ...

'We don't have a strategy'

Aug 29 2014 6:12pm CDT | Source: WND

Barack Obama’s admission that “we don’t have a strategy” for dealing with the death cult of ISIS as it sweeps across the Middle East, beheading and slaughtering all “infidels” in its wake, is like a punchline from a real-life tragicomedy. It illustrates one of the fundamental problems with the election process in America. It’s not designed to elevate to power the brightest, the most informed, the person with the clearest wo ...

Athletes Take a Stand for Mike Brown

Aug 27 2014 3:57pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

I cannot tell you how many TV and radio shows in the last couple of months have invited me to come on to criticize current athletes for not speaking out on crucial issues that affect our society as a whole. They tried to get me to publicly bad-mouth Dwight Howard after he deleted a "Free Palestine" Tweet from his account. They tried to get me to disparage all current athletes and label them all as cowards during the whole Donald Sterling madness, w ...

For Obama, an Indispensable Lesson from the Middle East

Aug 26 2014 4:31pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

President Barack Obama, who by any measure is a smart and shrewd politician, must be feeling rather foolish nowadays. Not only have his predictions proved wrong about Iraq and al-Qaeda, but, under his watch, America is also being drawn back into the Iraq quagmire three years after it withdrew. The president was all optimistic when he secured U.S. withdrawal from Iraq in 2011. But his claim of "extraordinary achie ...

White House Claims Obama JV Gaffe Not About ISIS

In January, the New Yorker magazine's David Remnick asked President Barack Obama about ISIS who had raised the black Islamic State flag in Fallujah in Iraq and in Syria. The President answered, “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 ho ...
