Comparison: The Gulf War Coalition, Iraq War Coalition…And Obama’s Coalition

Compare these realities for a sense of where we stand...

GULF WAR COALITION 1991 – Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Britain, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, France, Germany, Honduras, Hungary ,Italy, Kuwait , New Zealand, Niger, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia ,South Korea, Syria, United Arab Emirates, United States.
IRAQ WAR COALITION 2003 – Albania, Australia, Bahrain, Britain, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech, Denmark, Egypt, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Kuwait, Japan, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Netherlands, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United States.


OBAMA’S COALTION – John Kerry is working on it.  Meanwhile, BHO has had a lot to say, in a most unusual way:
“We don’t have a strategy.”
“No boots on the ground.”
“We will not intervene militarily.”
“We have 1000 advisors in Iraq.”
“Limited airstrikes in Iraq will commence.”
“We are looking at striking Syria.”
“We will increase sanctions.”


Obama Subtly Credits His Predecessor For Keeping America Safe

"Justice will be done."

Obama toasts
As the 13th anniversary of the deadliest attack on American soil approaches, the U.S. continues to face threats from Islamic radicals on multiple fronts. A chief concern is the expanding capabilities of extremists representing the Islamic State terrorist organization.
Also known as ISIS, the group has claimed credit for the brutal murders of two American journalists in recent weeks. Furthermore, there is a growing threat of affiliated terrorists staging an attack in the U.S.


While Barack Obama declared that his administration has yet to develop a policy through which to thwart this danger, he recently referred to his predecessor as an example of how strong leadership can keep Americans safe. Speaking at a recent Rhode Island fundraiser, Obama did not mention George W. Bush by name, though it is clear from his statement which administration should be credited with the policies he praised.

Farage: Int'l Rules Will Prevent UK From Keeping Militants Out

UK Independence Party (UKIP) Leader and member of the European Parliament, Nigel Farage declared that international regulations will prevent the UK from keeping ISIS militants out of the country on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.  Farage commented that Prime Minister David Cameron was “following my lead” by trying to revoke the passports of potential ISIS militants, but added that “he’s going to bang straight into the European Commission on Human Rights, who will tell him we cannot render people stateless.”

President Obama: We Must Organize the Arab World

During a press conference in Estonia on Wednesday morning, President Obama was asked about the purpose of the NATO alliance, ahead of a conference with allies in Wales. Obama described NATO as “unique in the annals of history” because of its success but admitted that the group had to move quickly to address evolving global threats.
“We have to recognize that threats evolve, and threats have evolved as a consequence of what we’ve seen in Ukraine, but threats are also evolving in the Middle East that have a direct effect on Europe,” he said.

WaPo: White House Earns 4 Pinocchios For ISIS 'JV' Rewrite

Weird how things work out among the White House Press Corps and the White House. After 8 months, 2 beheadings, and weeks of being a top story,  a reporter finally asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest about President Obama's January description of ISIS as "JV." And on the day this finally happened, Earnest just happened to be as prepared for the question as a man can be, “I thought somebody might ask this question today so I wanted to pull the transcript of the interview[.]"

 

Taliban Allies Consider Joining Islamic State

Taliban Allies Consider Joining Islamic State

Fighters from Hezb-e-Islami in Afghanistan, allies of the Taliban, are considering joining the Islamic State (IS).

Their commander, known simply as Commander Mirwais, said Muslims everywhere are "thirsty for an Islamic caliphate" and that his fighters are watching to see if IS proves to be "a true Islamic caliphate."
According to BBC News, Commander Mirwais referred to IS "by its Arabic acronym Daish." And he made clear that he and his men already "have links with some Daish members."
Commander Mirwais added:

ISIS Says, “The US-Mexican Border Is Now Open”, And Are Planning On Crossing Into The United States Through The US-Mexican Border

ISIS Says, “The US-Mexican Border Is Now Open”, And Are Planning On Crossing Into The United States Through The US-Mexican Border

An ISIS propaganda trading group recently posted these disturbing words on Twitter:


6
the US-Mexican border is now open large numbers of people crossing
The Texas law department found a message on Twitter from ISIS, saying
Americans in for ruin (sic).
ISIS wants to cross into the United States through the US-Mexican border. The Texas Department of Public Safety has given this warning:
A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack … Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations, or they have sought to raise awareness that illegal entry through Mexico is a viable option … The identities of persons operating these accounts cannot be independently verified; however the accounts were selected for monitoring based on several indications that they have been used by actual ISIS militants for propaganda purposes and collectively reach tens of thousands of followers… One account was verified as belonging to an individual located in Mosul, Iraq.


Judicial Watch has made this statement:
Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
According to the Texas law department, some 32 Facebook and Twitter posts by jihadists have been found expressing interest in the US-Mexican border, with even “calls for border infiltration.” ISIS knows that there are a large amount of people crossing into American through Mexico, and plans on using this to their advantage. As the Texas law department reports:

Inclusive Capitalism?



The current system of interventionism and cronyism will not cure our economic woes

by JAY BOWEN
A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.  - Milton Friedman
As the economic recovery from the financial crisis continues to disappoint on a variety of fronts—particularly job creation and real income growth—calls for a more inclusive capitalism grown louder. A chorus of critics is particularly obsessed with what they perceive as an increasing inequality—of both income and opportunity—that the current system has wrought.
Income inequality has indeed increased over the last five years, primarily because of the sharp rebound in stocks (the market is up 200 percent since the depths of the downturn). But most measures of income inequality do not take into account taxes, social welfare transfer payments, or non-cash benefits such as health insurance and pension benefits. When these factors are considered inequality actually decreased between 2000 and 2010, according to a Brookings Institution analysis.


The End of Politics—Part One



The End of Politics—Part One

Our current social operating system might soon be obsolete

 by MAX BORDERS
Someday we’ll look back on politics and shake our heads. It will have been a necessary phase—but not one we’ll want to relive. Necessary, because we have been undergoing a series of phases, none of which we could have bypassed.
We have already entered the next phase. Call it the Age of Connection. Once we realize all the benefits of this next phase, we’ll see how wasteful and acrimonious the prior phase had been.

Trench warfare

Most days it doesn’t seem like we are entering a transpartisan, post-political era. Most people are so locked into the political paradigm that arguments about who is to fund whose birth control—or whether the schools should get another bond—seem bigger than life. Each side cedes mere inches back and forth between election cycles in a kind of trench warfare. Such is the nature of politics. And in politics the only thing we share in common is a desire to take power, as there is one ring to bind them.
The tribe who has the ring rules the land, at least for a while. The other side snatches it back sooner or later and the whole thing starts all over again. Yet each side labors under the idea that if they can just get and keep the ring, they will use it to good ends. We’ll give it to the right people, they imagine. The right people are incorruptible. We’re still waiting on the right people.


The End of Politics—Part Two





The End of Politics—Part Two

As humanity decentralizes, our moral norms will change, too

 by MAX BORDERS
This is the second in a two-part series. You can find part one here.
In the early 1990s, the nervous system of a new global order began to emerge. Twenty years on, a generation of children raised online has reached adulthood. What does this mean for the future of human social organization?
Three important things, among others, perhaps. Digital natives are:

  • Used to the concept of “exit.” If you don’t like some product, service, operating system, or social media group, you can switch.
  • Comfortable with forming and maintaining relationships online. These relationships can be intimate, casual, or impersonal.
  • Cynical about politics as a process and means of making positive change. Give them a relatively low-cost alternative and they’ll be fine to adopt it—like downloading an app.

30 stats to show to anyone that does not believe the middle class is being destroyed

Abandoned House - Photo by Flickr User baldeaglebluff
The 30 statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the middle class in America is being systematically destroyed.  Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a staggering pace.  Yes, the stock market has soared to unprecedented heights this year and there are a few isolated areas of the country that are doing rather well for the moment.  But overall, the long-term trends that are eviscerating the middle class just continue to accelerate.  Over the past decade or so, the percentage of Americans that are working has gone way down, the quality of our jobs has plummeted dramatically and the wealth of the typical American household has fallen precipitously.  Meanwhile, we have watched median household income decline for five years in a row, we have watched the rate of homeownership in this country decline for eight years in a row and dependence on the government is at an all-time high.  Being a part of the middle class in the United States at this point can be compared to playing a game of musical chairs.  We can all see chairs being removed from the game, and we are all desperate to continue to have a chair every time the music stops playing.  The next time the music stops, will it be your chair that gets removed?


The Road To World War 3: Russia And Ukraine Are Now Engaged In A Shooting War

Russian Tanks - Photo by Yana Amelina
Russian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.  Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?  This week, a very robust force of "tanks, artillery and infantry" has opened up a "third front" in the Ukrainian civil war in a part of southeastern Ukraine that had not seen much fighting yet.  Exhausted Ukrainian forces are suddenly being pushed back rapidly and many outsiders are wondering how the nearly defeated rebels were able to muster such impressive military strength all of a sudden.  But it really isn't much of a mystery.  The tanks, artillery and infantry came from inside Russia.  In recent days, Ukrainian units have captured ten Russian paratroopers and there have even been funerals for Russian paratroopers that have been killed in action back home in Russia.  Even though it has become exceedingly obvious that Russia is now conducting a stealth invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is still choosing to deny it.  But if he did publicly admit it, that would be even more dangerous.  Barack Obama would be forced into a position of either having to do something about the Russian invasion or look weak in the eyes of the public.  And as the Russians have already shown, they are more than willing to match any move that the Obama administration makes.


The Seven Year Cycle Of Economic Crashes That Everyone Is Talking About

Blood Red MoonLarge numbers of people believe that an economic crash is coming next year based on a seven year cycle of economic crashes that goes all the way back to the Great Depression.  What I am about to share with you is very controversial.  Some of you will love it, and some of you will think that it is utter rubbish.  I will just present this information and let you decide for yourself what you want to think about it.  In my previous article entitled "If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States", I discussed many of the economic cycle theories that all seem to agree that we are on the verge of a major economic downturn in this country.  But there is an economic cycle that I did not mention in that article that a lot of people are talking about right now.  And if this cycle holds up once again in 2015, it will be really bad news for the U.S. economy.


What Michelle and Barack Obama knew that would destroy our Republic

What Michelle and Barack Obama knew that would destroy our Republic

“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” ~ Michelle Obama – May 14, 2008
It is unlikely the world will ever see another year like 1787 when the United States Constitution was fashioned and signed. It was a one-time event in world history when brilliant and brave men came forward to form a unique government. Our Founders created a small, centralized government with enumerated, limited powers. This document commanded that states, and the people retain extraordinary power over the federal government.
The ink had barely dried on the Constitution before power-hungry politicians, and greedy men began chipping away at liberty. Creeping tyranny began before the final ratification. That tyranny creep has amplified today to a crushing onslaught of federal power against the states and people.

Hong Kong’s Twist on Welfare: The More You Work, the More Welfare You Get

Other policymakers should closely watch a program Hong Kong has come up with to aid its working poor

Hong Kong is a city of extremes. One of the world’s richest, its streets are lined with Louis Vuitton and Prada shops, the roads with Jaguars and BMWs, and its heights dotted with luxurious homes boasting spectacular views of its famed harbor. But China‘s special administrative zone is also famous for one of the ugliest income gaps in the world. Those less fortunate cram themselves into closet-sized apartments and can barely afford put food on the table in the high-cost city. The government estimates that more than 1.3 million Hong Kongers, or nearly 20% of the population, live below the poverty line.


The Man Behind the Hong Kong Miracle



IDEAS AND CONSEQUENCES

The Man Behind the Hong Kong Miracle

Some of us just write about libertarian ideas. This guy actually made them public policy for millions.

 by LAWRENCE W. REED
Three cheers for Hong Kong, that tiny chunk of Southeast Asian rock. For the twentieth consecutive year, the Index of Economic Freedom—compiled by The Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation—ranks Hong Kong (HK) as the freest economy in the world.
Though part of mainland China since the British ceded it in 1997, HK is governed locally on a daily basis. So far, the Chinese have remained reasonably faithful to their promise to leave the HK economy alone. What makes it so free is music to the ears of everyone who loves liberty:  Relatively little corruption. An efficient and independent judiciary. Respect for the rule of law and property rights. An uncomplicated tax system with low rates on both individuals and business and an overall tax burden that’s a mere 14 percent of GDP (half the U.S. rate). No taxes on capital gains or interest income or even on earnings from outside of HK. No sales tax or VAT either. A very light regulatory touch. No government budget deficit and almost nonexistent public debt. Oh, and don’t forget its average tariff rate of near zero. That’s right—zero!


‘Are You Kidding Me?’: Michele Bachmann Shares What FBI Allegedly Told Her About Islamic State Terrorists Returning to U.S.

‘Are You Kidding Me?’: Michele Bachmann Shares What FBI Allegedly Told Her About Islamic State Terrorists Returning to U.S.

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R) was stunned when she questioned the FBI about what would happen to American citizens who have gone overseas to fight with the Islamic State, and then try to return to the United States.
“Two from my state were the first Americans who were fighting for ISIS,” she began on The Glenn Beck Program Tuesday. “I had gone earlier this year and asked the FBI, ‘Are there any Minnesotans that are over fighting with ISIS?’ It was classified information at the time, I couldn’t reveal it. Now everyone knows.”
“At that time, these two hadn’t been killed yet,” Bachmann continued. “So what I asked is, ‘OK, once they’re done fighting with ISIS, what’s going to happen if they try to return?’ And they said, ‘Well, they’ll come into the country.’”
“Are you kidding me?” Bachmann remarked. “We are not going to prevent them from coming into the United States?’”

Bachmann said she is introducing legislation “so that anyone with a U.S. passport who’s gone to fight with ISIS or any of these jihadist groups, they are prevented from coming into the United States.”
“In my opinion, they should lose their American citizenship,” she added. “Because at that point, you have turned against the United States. ISIS has declared the United States as their enemy. Once you join an enemy army … you should, by definition, lose your American citizenship, therefore your passport. You should have no ability to get back into the United States.”

Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.
Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.
“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”


Source: Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS


Source: Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS


President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News.
The official -- who asked not to be identified because the President's Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president -- said the data was strong and "granular" in detail.
The source said a policymaker "could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad."
Obama, unlike his predecessors who traditionally had the document briefed to them, is known to personally read the daily brief. The former Pentagon official, who has knowledge of the process, said Obama generally was not known to come back to the intelligence community with further requests for information based on the daily report.


White House Fuzzy on Timing of Obama's Executive Amnesty

White House Fuzzy on Timing of Obama's Executive Amnesty

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted.

Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible.
"I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
But since then, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest won't clarify the timing of Obama’s executive action.

'You Are Not Up to This Job': Parents of SEAL Team Six Soldier Killed in Action Call for President Obama's Resignation

This article originally appeared in Mail Online. Karen Vaughn has been a contributor to Breitbart News.

One couple knows all too well the pain suffered by the parents of James Foley, the American photojournalist executed on camera last month by the Islamic State.
Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier's Chinook helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan.
Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and 'lack of leadership' in confronting ISIS.
On Monday, the Vaughns wrote a letter, calling out Mr Obama's decision to go golfing after holding an important press conference on the Foley video.

EXCLUSIVE: Sarah Palin: Vladimir Putin a 'Silly Little Man'

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin fired back against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday calling him a "silly little man" after he said that he was not interested in invading Alaska.

Putin downplayed the value of Alaska during a question-and-answer session in Moscow today, pointing out that it was a cold northern territory.
“What would you need Alaska for?” he said, advising Russians "not be overenthusiastic” about the state.


EYE ON THE BALL

Eye-balling-590-LI

Paul Krugman, "Funny and Scary?"

Professor Paul Krugman, in his New York Times blog, says my recent column about him is, "funny and scary." Last week’s column here inferred that Prof. Krugman is leaving Princeton in quiet disgrace. It drew pretty wide attention.
It also drew over 150 comments. Many commentators merrily berated me. (Comes with the territory.) The column, quite flatteringly, even drew a riposte from Prof. Krugman himself, in his Times blog, entitled Fantasies of Personal Destruction:
A correspondent directs me to a piece in Forbes about yours truly that is both funny and scary. Yep, scurrying away with my tail between my legs, I am, disgraced for policy views shared only by crazy people like the IMF’s chief economist (pdf).
One thing I’ve noticed, though, is how many people on the right are drawn to power fantasies in which liberals aren’t just proved wrong and driven from office, but personally destroyed. Does anyone else remember this bit from the O’Reilly scandal?
“Look at Al Franken, one day he’s going to get a knock on his door and life as he’s known it will change forever,” O’Reilly said. “That day will happen, trust me. . . . Ailes knows very powerful people and this goes all the way to the top.”
And people wonder why I don’t treat all of this as a gentlemanly conversation.

Our Freedoms Are Slowly Slipping Away

Ken Blackwell
As Americans celebrated Labor Day and the freedom to provide for their families, let’s hope they didn't spoil the holiday yesterday by pausing to consider whether government today is making their lives easier or more difficult.
To wit, the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, published by the Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation, which ranks countries based on four main factors – rule of law, limited government, regulatory efficiency, open markets – has the US is headed in the wrong direction. “The U.S. is the only country,” the survey states, “to have recorded a loss of economic freedom each of the past seven years.”


Signs Of The Fed's Era Of Secrecy Coming To An End

Ralph Benko
The Federal Reserve increasingly is attracting scrutiny across the board. Now add to that a roller coaster of a thriller, using a miracle of a rare device, shining a light into the operations of the Fed — that contemporary riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma: Matthew Quirk’s latest novel, The Directive.
“If I’ve made myself too clear, you must have misunderstood me,” Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan once famously said. The era of a mystagogue Fed may be ending. Recently, the House Government Oversight Committee passed, and referred to the full House, theFederal Reserve Transparency Act of 2014. This legislation is part of the legacy of the great former Representative Ron Paul. It popularly is known as “Audit the Fed.” How ironic that a mystery novel proves a device to dispel some of the Fed’s obscurantist mystery.


The Prisoner Swap Deal


People are arguing about what the United States got out of the deal that swapped five top level terrorist leaders for one American soldier who was, at best, absent from his post in a war zone. Soldiers who served in the same unit with him call him a deserter. The key to this deal, however, is less likely to be what the United States got out of the deal than it is about what Barack Obama got out of the deal. If nothing else, it instantly got the veterans' hospitals scandals off the front pages of newspapers and pushed these scandals aside on television news programs.
It was a clear winner for Barack Obama. And that may be all that matters to Barack Obama.
People who are questioning the president's competence seem not to want to believe that any President of the United States would knowingly damage this country's interests.


Irresponsible Choices

Thomas Sowell
The latest Gallup poll indicates that 14 percent of the people "moderately disapprove" of Barack Obama's performance as president and 39 percent "strongly disapprove."Since Obama won two presidential elections, chances are that some of those who now "strongly disapprove" of what he has done voted to put him in office. We all make mistakes, but the real question is whether we learn from them.
With many people now acting as if it is time for "a woman" to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualifications.


State Dept. Spokeswoman "Not Going to Put Any Labels" on ISIS Beheading of Second American Journalist

Katie Pavlich
Earlier today in their second direct message to America, the terror army ISIS beheaded American journalist Steven Sotloff.
"I'm back Obama," an ISIS executioner says in the newly released video.
Two weeks ago in their first direct message to America, ISIS did the same to American journalist James Foley. The video showing his execution was titled "Message to America." 
Despite video evidence of the gruesome acts and masked men issuing direct challenges to the United States, the Obama administration still has no strategy for dealing with these savages. Adding insult to injury during her daily briefing Tuesday afternoon, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said she isn't going to "label" what ISIS did to Sotloff.
Many thanks to Fox News' James Rosen for asking the question.
Beheading Americans, which ISIS has done twice now, certainly count as acts of war. This kind of political correctness, the constant "no labeling," has not only resulted in Americans being killed but will get more Americans killed in the future. This administration is more interested in giving poll tested answers to questions posed by reporters than they are in fighting radical jihad as it marches across the Middle East to the West.
