WOW! Obama State Department Won’t Label Taliban Attack that Killed 3 US Contractors as Terrorism (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 5:13 PM

On Wednesday White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz argued that the Taliban is not a terrorist group, but instead an “armed insurgency.”

On Thursday White House Spokesman Josh Earnest doubled-down on the idiocy.
Earnest told reporters:

“They have a different classification. They have a classification that does allow us to place financial concessions against them that have succeeded in limiting their capability. They’ve been effective. And that is different than an organization like Al-Qaeda that has much broader global aspiration to carry out acts of violence and acts of terror.”

What complete nonsense.

Also on Thursday three US contractors were shot to death at the Kabul Airport in an apparent insider attack.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

But today the Obama administration would not label the Taliban attack as terrorism.
State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters:

“I’m not going to put new labels on the situation today.”

What nonsense
You just can’t make this up.

Jordan Threatens ISIS: Kill Our Pilot & We’ll Execute ALL Your Prisoners

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 3:01 PM

ISIS supporters released this photo today…
Time is running out for Jordanian pilot.
isis pilot
From the tweet (translated): The slaughter of the Jordanian pilot apostate and God praise and gratitude waits.

But Jordan released its own message to ISIS.
Kill Our Pilot and We’ll Execute ALL Your Prisoners
The Daily Mail reported:

Jordan has threatened to fast-track the execution of a would-be suicide bomber the Islamic State is trying to free if the terror group kills its captured pilot, it was reported today.

The government has apparently warned that Sajida al-Rishawi and other jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in revenge for Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s death.

It comes after a deadline for a possible prisoner swap allegedly set by ISIS passed yesterday with no clue over the fate of al-Kaseasbeh or fellow Japanese hostage Kenji Goto.

Intelligence sources said ISIS’s refusal to prove that al-Kaseasbeh was alive meant any deal with the militants was doomed.

Now Jordan has reportedly stepped up its rhetoric by warning of its intent to retaliate if the negotiations end in bloodshed.

Elijah Magnier, chief international correspondent for Kuwait’s Al Rai newspaper, told MailOnline: ‘I have reliable contact in the Jordanian government who says a message has been passed to ISIS.

‘It warns that if they kill the pilot they will implement the death sentences for Sajida and other ISIS prisoners as soon as possible.

In a video earlier this week ISIS hostage Kenji Goto warned of the execution of the captured Jordanian pilot.

Lieutenant Kasasbeh, 27, from Karak Governorate, was captured by Islamic State militants when his plane came down near Raqqa, Syria on December 24.

In December ISIS released video and photos of the Jordanian pilot they reportedly captured after they shot down his plane.

This was the first coalition aircraft shot down by ISIS.

 

OBAMA ATF and DEA Recorded License Plate Numbers Outside Gun Shows – Took Photos of Car Occupants

The DEA and ATF cooperated to record the license plates of attendees at gun shows.

The Obama U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Obama Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives cooperated to build a massive database of license plate images collected by automated license plate reader devices of gun shows attendees.

The DEA equipment is able to capture images of occupants inside the vehicle.
Guns.com reported:

According to emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union, federal authorities planned to monitor gun show parking lots with automatic license plate readers.

The insight comes from a damning report released by the ACLU this week on a secretive program by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to build a massive database of license plates images collected by automated license plate reader devices. As part of this investigation, emails released through the Freedom of Information Act detailed a planned cooperation between the DEA’s National License Plate Recognition initiative and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to scan and record the plates and vehicle images of gun show attendees.

“DEA Phoenix Division Office is working closely with ATF on attacking the guns going to [redacted] and the gun shows, to include programs/operation with LPRs at the gun shows,” reads an April 2009 email.

The time and place mentioned in the email coincides with known information on the Justice Department’sFast and Furious operation, a controversial “gunwalking” scandal that possibly transferred as many as 2,000 guns to drug traffickers in Mexico. That program was run out of the Phoenix ATF Field Divisionoffice, just two miles from the DEA office.

The DEA launched the license plate reader program in December 2008 after the November elections.

From a recovered DEA email:

The license plate readers could recognize up to 4 plates on the front of vehicles and could store images of the occupants in the vehicle.

Flashback: Wife of Disabled Vet Severely Wounded in Bergdahl Search Lashes Out at “Traitor” Bergdahl

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 12:08 PM

Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen was severely injured while searching for deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

Mark Allen, who is from Loganville, Georgia, was injured when a sniper bullet pierced the armor in his helmet in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Unlike the Obama administration, Debbie Allen does not believe Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

Debbie Allen lashed out at Bergdahl in a June 2014 Facebook post.
The Blaze reported:

The wife of a disabled Afghanistan veteran who was injured while searching for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has posted a scathing message against him this week, adding a personal account to the rising protests against the negotiations with the Taliban that lead to Bergdahl’s freedom.

In a message she posted via Facebook, Shannon Allen, wife of Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen, wrote:

‘Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a “hero” again?!? Sick.’

In addition to the message, Allen posted a family picture, showing husband and wife in addition to their daughter. Mark Allen was posed in his wheelchair wearing his dress blues, while their daughter was wearing a graduation cap and gown.

“Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a ‘hero’ again?!? Sick.”

Susan Rice insisted Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

 

Russian Bombers Intercepted Over English Channel

Russian nuclear-capable bombers were intercepted over the English Channel this week.
CNN reported:

Russia’s ambassador to Britain was summoned to the UK’s Foreign Office on Thursday to explain why two Russian bombers were flying over the English Channel this week, a representative of the office said.

Two Russian bombers “caused disruption to civil aviation” when they flew near, but did not cross into, British airspace on Wednesday, the Foreign Office representative said.

Two UK Royal Air Force jets intercepted the bombers, both capable of carrying nuclear weapons, south of Bournemouth, England, over the English Channel, a UK defense spokesman said Thursday.

The British jets escorted the bombers for about an hour-and-a-half until the bombers left the area, the defense spokesman said.

“Russian aircraft maneuvers yesterday are part of (an) increasing pattern of out-of-area operations by Russian aircraft,” the Foreign Office representative said.

The representative did not elaborate on how civil aviation was disrupted. Details about what the Russian ambassador has told Britain about the incident weren’t immediately available.

Couple this with the Russian spy ship in Cuba and the three Russian spies recently charged in New York, and it appears the Cold War is back on. Hillary, your “Reset” button appears to be defective.

For the record… Condoleezza Rice warned about the vacuum created by Obama’s failed policies.
The Washington Times reported:

“Right now, there’s a vacuum. There’s a vacuum because we’ve decided to lower our voice. We’ve decided to step back. We’ve decided that if we step back and lower our voice, others will lead. Other things will fill the vacuum,” she said, according to audio obtained by The Washington Times. “But of course it’s not our allies and our friends, it’s not the international norms that have filled that vacuum. It is instead dictators like Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Vladimir Putin in Russia. It’s extremists like al Qaeda raising the black flag in Fallujah in Iraq.”

She did not mention Mr. Obama by name, but blasted both his approach and his specific policies, including the Pentagon’s recent announcement of major force reductions.

 

VIDEO=> Joe Biden: The Last Six Years Have Been Really, Really Hard for This Country …(No Kidding)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 10:52 AM

Tell us something we don’t know.
Joe Biden admitted to a Democratic audience Friday morning–

“The past six years have been really, really hard for this country.”

The Weekly Standard reported:

“And they’ve been really tough for our party. Just ask [former DCCC chair] Steve [Israel]. They’ve been really tough for our party. And together we made some really, really tough decisions — decisions that weren’t at all popular, hard to explain,” said Biden.

Joe Biden wasn’t kidding.
Here are the facts…

** Real unemployment is at 23%
John Ransom at Townhall reported:
The BLS reported that job creation came in at 248,000. Another 315,000 people left the labor force last month. When one accounts for part-time work, discouraged workers and those who have dropped out of the labor force entirely, unemployment is closer to 23 percent, with no great sign of retreat from that number.

** Labor Participation Rate is at 62.7% – a 36 year low.
Zero Hedge reported a record 92.6 Million Americans are not in labor force.

** The US labor participation rate has fallen behind Great Britain for the first time in 36 years thanks to Obama’s failed big government policies.

** The number of long-term unemployed Americans has more than doubled since 2007, from 18.4% to 39.3%.

** 11.4 Million Americans have left the US workforce since Barack Obama took office.

The workforce participation rate is at its lowest level since the Carter years.

AMERICANS ARE GETTING POORER – HOUSEHOLD NET WORTH IN DECLINE

** Under Barack Obama American households are worth two-thirds of what they were worth under George W. Bush.

** The number of Americans who consider themselves middle class has fallen by nearly a fifth over the past five years.

260,000 College Graduates in Minimum Wage Jobs
The number of minimum wage workers with college degrees is still more than double what it was during the Bush years.

If you thought paying tens of thousands of dollars for a college education guaranteed a high-paying job, think again.

** Today more Americans on food stamps than the population of Spain.

** Today more Americans live in poverty than the population of Argentina.

** Today 11 million Americans are on disability under Obama. That’s more people than the population of New York City.

The number of Americans on disability now exceeds the number of people in New York City. More than 5.4 million workers and their dependents have signed up to collect federal disability checks since President Obama took office.

** Inflation has increased 43% more under Barack Obama than George W. Bush.

Mitt Romney NOT RUNNING For President

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 10:07 AM

Mitt Romney told supporters today he is not running for president in 2016.
Yahoo-AP reported:

After a three-week flirtation with another run for president, Mitt Romney said definitively on Friday that he will not seek the White House in 2016.

The Republican Party’s 2012 nominee plans to tell supporters about his plans to pass on another national campaign during a conference call. He first let his staff know in a separate call that he was out of the race.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney said in a statement, which he planned to read to supporters on the call.

The former governor of Massachusetts had jumped back into the presidential discussion on Jan. 10, when he surprised a small group of former donors at a meeting in New York by telling them he was eyeing a third run for the White House.

Romney posted this yesterday on his Twitter account:

The liberal media savaged Mitt Romney nonstop for two weeks.
Now they’ll have to focus on the next Republican in the fold.

Somewhere, Jeb Bush is smiling.

 

Breaking: Two Americans Shot At – One injured in Saudi Arabia

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 10:04 AM

Two Americans were shot today, one was injured in Saudi Arabia.

KTUU reported:

One American was killed and another was injured when a gunman attacked their vehicle convoy Friday, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a Saudi police spokesman.

The attack happened at a gas station near King Fahd highway east of the capital, Riyadh, the report says.

Middle East Eye has more.

A statement released by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, citing a police report, said that a vehicle carrying the two US citizens was fired on from an “unknown source” on Saladin al-Ayubi Street in al-Mubarraz City. Saudi Special Forces are now conducting a criminal investigation, according to the report.

The injured American was taken to a hospital and is reportedly in “stable condition”.

 

Gov. Kasich Defends Support for Obamacare: “I Don’t Pay Much Attention to Narrow Ideologues”

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, January 30, 2015, 8:47 AM

obamacare

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-OH) defended his support for Obamacare by quoting Bible verses. Regarding his critics, Kasich said, “I don’t pay much attention to the narrow ideologues.”

WatchDog.org reported:

Matthew 25 includes a call for more entitlement spending and provides biblical justification for Obamacare, or so says Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Promoting Obamacare in South Dakota, Montana and several national interviews last week, Kasich touted the Bible chapter’s depiction of judgment based on individual charity as a sweeping endorsement of government programs for the poor.

Kasich, a Republican, campaigned against Obamacare in 2010, saying the law’s Medicaid expansion would “stick states with large and unsustainable costs.” He unilaterally implemented the Obamacare Medicaid expansion in 2013.

The Obamacare expansion puts able-bodied, working-age adults with no dependent children on Medicaid at a cost of billions per year in new federal spending. By Kasich’s description, Matthew 25 amounts to a divine endorsement of the policy.

“Now, if you ever read Matthew 25, I think, ‘I wanna feed the hungry and clothe the naked,’” Kasich said when asked about Obamacare at a Jan. 20 event in Pierre, South Dakota.

“Now, I don’t know whether you ever read Matthew 25, but I commend it to you, the end of it, about do you feed the homeless and do you clothe the poor,” Kasich told Montana legislators when asked about Obamacare at a Helena press conference the next day.

Kasich cited Matthew 25 when defending his Obamacare expansion during a Fox News interview aired Jan. 22, during a Jan. 22 Hugh Hewitt interview and during an NPR interview aired Friday.

Regarding Obamacare critics, Kasich told NPR, “I don’t pay much attention to narrow ideologues.”
