Just when you think this Administration cannot possibly be any worse than it already is, it seems to find a way. Specifically, Obama seems to find a way. Recently, it was his jetting off from declaring his outrage over the beheading of photojournalist, James Foley, to getting back to the golf course with this HUGE grin on his face as the NY Daily News cover highlighted:
But that was only the start of the outrageousness over this barbaric act. Have you seen the recent claims by the Obama State Department about the recent beheading of photojournalist, James Foley? If not, I would suggest you sit down, and not have drink anything while watching the pathologically delusional utterances of State Department Spokeswoman, Marie Harf. Oh, and bear in mind she is clarifying remarks by Obama:
Can you believe this crap?? In case you can’t watch the video, BizPacReview.com has the story:
[...] Under questioning by reporters at a news briefing about the savage beheading of American photojournalist James Foley by savages calling themselves the Islamic State, the hapless Harf maintained with a straight face that not only was the crime not directed against the United States, it wasn’t done in the name of religion either, according to CNS.
No matter what the guys who actually did the killing might think.
“I think ISIL wants to make this about the United States and our actions. And I think what the President was trying to say was that this is not about the United States and what we do,” Harf said, apparently even believing it. “This is about countries in the region coming together to fight a shared threat, and this is not about us.”
Oh. My. GOSH. Seriously?? How she can stand there and make this declaration in all seriousness is beyond me. Joe Saunders at BizPacReview clears it up for Ms. Harf as tha article continues:
As someone once said, let this be clear.
Some Islamist animal with a knife slit the throat of an American citizen, explicity because he’s an American citizen. Then distributed a video of the barbarity called, “A message to America.” And that video concluded with a warning to the president of the United States about another hostage, Steve Joel Sotloff, that said, “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.”
But John Kerry’s State Department is outraged that anyone could take that to mean this was directed in any way at “the United States and what we do.”
Most people might think a group that calls itself the Islamic State might have more than a passing belief that it operates in the name of some religion or other. Not to point fingers or anything — just to pull a religion of the air, you understand – most people might think that group was operating in the name of Islam.
But President Obama and the progressives at the State Department know scads more than the Islamic terrorists who are spending their whole benighted lives believing they’re somehow engaged in a war with the United States – and they’re engaging in that war in the name of their own religion.

Uh huh. Unfortunately for us, and for the photojournalists who have been captured by ISIS, these dimwits are running the country. Check that – RUINING the country and putting us at risk.
That’s not hyperbole – that is essentially what the Pentagon has to say about ISIS in the Independent UK:
The Islamic State (Isis) presents a greater threat to the US than al-Qa’ida and must be defeated, the Pentagon has said.
The American Defence Secretary, Chuck Hagel, sounded a warning on Thursday in the wake of the brutal beheading of journalist James Foley.
“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” he said.
“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of […] military prowess.
“They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.” [...] (Click here to read the rest.)
I think that about sums it up. Maybe Ms. Harf and Obama could pay attention to what the Pentagon is saying. Just a thought.
And speaking of the Pentagon and the incompetent Obama White House, once again, they have endangered our Special Forces by openning their big mouths. From the <a href="http://dailycaller.com/2014/
08/22/pentagon-official-how-the-latest-white-house-leak-exposes-their-failed-deadly-politics/”>Daily Caller: On Wednesday, the White House leaked a classified special forces operation to rescue American hostages in Syria. The reason: political cover. The cost: so far, unknown.
But this much, we know: The politicized leak of this operation cut through the fog of war to let our enemies know exactly what happened that day in the desert, and because of that, future attempts to free American hostages will be more difficult to plan, farther between, and more dangerous to carry out.

What a bunch of idiotic, law-breaking morons. They put our people at risk repeatedly fornothing more than their own political backsides.
And speaking of breaking the law, I imagine you have seen that the GAO has declared that Obama and the DOD did break the law when they effected the exchange of Bergdahl the Deserter for the Five Top Taliban Terrorists. I know you are just as shocked as I am, which is not at all. It seemed pretty evident at the time that Obama broke the law. Now the question is: what the hell is Congress going to DO about it???
How muc longer is Obama’s lawlessness going to be allowed to continue, as well as putting our people atr risk, both at home, and in our Special Forces?? Who is going to stand up top him, and will they do so before someone else is hurt, or our nation attacked? Sadly, we have to wait and see…
And on THAT note, this is your Weekend Open Thread. I will be returning from Grand Cayman late Saturday night, and will be spending quality time with my babies on Sunday, so this is all yours now!
