President X.

That’s who fraudulently occupies The Office Of The United States President.

“President X” – not just because his so-called life ‘narrative’ teems with deceit, obfuscation, manipulation, lies, contradictions, fake people, composite characters, contrived vignettes, and phony relationships. Not to mention his utterly fake family photos. Or his forged and fraudulent identity documents.

“President X” doesn’t simply stem from the fact that there is not [and never was] a “Barack Hussein Obama II” as presented to America.

He isn’t “President X” solely because his official life ‘narrative’ glaringly omits the actual core members of his biological family.

First and foremost, aka Barack Hussein Obama II is President X for this compelling reason:

He’s the son…

Actor Ben Affleck dislikes Republicans; defends Islam

ben-affleck-batmanFirst view of Affleck as the new Batman, sure to be a flop

Yesterday, actor Ben Affleck tweeted that “I do not like Republicans.”

This is conservative blogger KLSouth‘s response:

Ben Affleck

Today, Affleck’s tweet has disappeared from his Twitter account.

That means not only is Affleck intolerant, he’s also a coward.

Two Fridays ago on Bill Mayer’s show, Affleck ferociously defended Islam.

As recounted by the New York Daily News, Mayer was calling on liberals to defend liberal (i.e., freedom-loving) principles. He said, “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for. But then when you say in the Muslim world this is what’s lacking, then they get upset.”

Smugly claiming that he understands “the officially codified doctrine of Islam,” Affleck insists that radical Islamists are NOT the majority of Muslim views, and calls “gross, racist, and disgusting” any conception of Islam that is otherwise.

Hey, genius Affleck!

There is no “officially codified doctrine of Islam” because Muslims are bitterly divided between Sunnis and Shïtes. And because every 2-cent Muslim “teacher” can declare himself an imam.

Then there’s what the Quran says:

islam Religion of Terror

Affleck is out promoting his new flick, Gone Girl.

Make sure you stay away.

New poll finds President Ebola and the Democrats in trouble

Pres Ebola overpass signSeen on a freeway overpass somewhere in America

Meanwhile, ABC News reports, Oct. 15, 2014, that a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Ebola and the Democrats “are heading into the midterm elections in trouble.”

The poll’s findings, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates:

  • The POS’s 40% job approval rating — STILL 40% JOB APPROVAL! — is the lowest of his career.
  • The Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in 30 years, with more than half of Americans (51%) seeing the party unfavorably for the first time, and just 39% see it favorably.
  • The Republican Party has a weaker 33%-56% favorable-unfavorable rating. But while the Democrats have lost 10 points in favorability just since August, the GOP has held steady – and its negative score has eased by 7 points in the past year. The GOP also benefits from its supporters’ greater likelihood of voting. All of which accounts for GOP candidates holding a 50-43% lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.
  • 71% of Americans express worry about a terrorist attack.
  • 65% say they’re concerned about an Ebola epidemic.
  • Almost two-thirds say the country is headed seriously off on the wrong track.
  • Three-quarters are dissatisfied with the way the political system is working. Scorn is widely cast: Among those who are dissatisfied with the political system, two-thirds say both sides are equally to blame, with the rest dividing evenly between Obama and his party, vs. the Republicans in Congress, as the chief culprits. But as a nearly 6-year incumbent president, Obama – and by extension his party – are most at risk.
  • On which party they trust more to handle the main problems facing the country:
    • Among all Americans: it’s 39% vs. 39%.
    • Among registered voters: it’s 41% for the Republican Party vs. 38% for the Democrats.
    • But among likely voters this becomes an 8-point Republican advantage: 46% for the GOP vs. 38% for the Democrats.
  • Obama is at career lows in approval for his handling of immigration, international affairs and terrorism (long his best issue). Approval of his handling of the conflict with Islamic State insurgents in Iraq and Syria has plummeted by 15% in the last two weeks, amid questions about the progress of the air campaign now under way. (See “Obama’s ISIL strategy reexamined: air strikes ineffective; weak coalition“)
  • While Obama’s negative rating on handling the economy has eased, more Americans say they’ve gotten worse off rather than better off under his presidency:
    • 77% are worried about the economy’s future.
    • 57% say America has  been experiencing a long-term decline in living standards – all grim assessments as Election Day looms.

ABC poll on economy

Never forget that in Obama’s mind, there’s something wrong with you if you don’t think America is better off under his presidency.

Obama’s ISIL strategy reexamined: air strikes ineffective; weak coalition

Dr. Eowyn:

Obama is the opposite of King Midas.

He is King Merde because everything he touches turns into crap. steaming-turd-smiley-emoticon

His much-vaunted “counterterrorism” strategy against the Islamic State jihadists — a strategy that led the butt-kisser David Brooks to compare Obama with Moses — is no exception. It is a signal failure.

Originally posted on Consortium of Defense Analysts:

One month 4 days after President Obama’s grand announcement of a U.S.-led coalition to combat ISIL/ISIS or Islamic State (IS) “terrorists” (Obama says they’re neither Islamic nor jihadist!), as predicted by analysts, including members of this Consortium (their comments below are colored green), the “counterterrorism” strategy is failing.

Air Strikes

“Every analyst recognizes that attacks from the air may degrade (to a certain extent) the enemy, but not destroy him.” -A. James Gregor

“Well, airstrikes usually don’t amount to much. In the classic reason: You fly in and drop bombs, your aircraft run low on fuel and leave, and the locals declare victory and display pieces of a plane they shot down there because they’re still alive and in charge. Unless some key thing of the enemy’s got specifically attacked and destroyed in the raid, it doesn’t accomplish much….  Unless we concentrate force from the air upon…

British prime minister says 9/11 “truthers” are just like violent ISIS extremists

On September 24, 2014, Prime Minister David Cameron, the head of the government of the United Kingdom, gave a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

He warned world leaders at the UN that the Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) harbors “murderous plans to expand its borders well beyond Iraq and Syria… and to carry out terrorist atrocities right across the world.” Although the UN had reason to be wary about a new military campaign in the region because of memories of the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq as well as the long struggle that has played out over more than ten years in Afghanistan, Cameron insisted that should not deter the international community from doing what it takes to tackle the IS now, saying, “We need to act. We need to act now.” The British prime minister then pledged his country will join the U.S.-led coalition to thwart those murderous IS “terrorists” — not jihadists!

Echoing what Obama (and also George W. Bush), Cameron said (beg. at 3:47 mark in the video), “The root cause of this terrorist threat is a poisonous ideology of extremism. This has nothing to do with Islam, which is a peaceful religion which inspires countless acts of generosity every day.”

What is appalling about Cameron’s speech begins at around the 4:48 mark. Decrying those who doubt the official story we’d been given about the terrorist attacks on 9/11 (September 11, 2001) in the United States, and those on July 7, 2005 in London, the prime minster said about the deniers and skeptics:

“We know this worldview, the peddling of lies — that 9/11 was somehow a Jewish plot, or that the 7/7 London attacks was staged. The idea that Muslims are persecuted all over the world as a deliberate act of Western policy . . . of an inevitable clash of civilizations.

We must be clear: To defeat the ideology of extremism, we need to deal with all forms of extremism, not just violent extremism. As governments, there are some obvious ways we can do this. We must ban preachers of hate from coming to our countries. We must proscribe organizations that incite terrorism against our people at home and abroad. We must work together to take down the legal online material like the recent videos of ISIS murdering hostages.  And we must stop the nonviolent extremists from inciting hatred and intolerance in our schools, our universities and, yes, even our prisons.

Of course, some would argue that this is not compatible with free speech and intellectual inquiry. But I ask you, would we sit back and allow right wing extremists, Nazis, or Ku Klux Klansmen to recruit on our university campuses? No! So we shouldn’t stand by and allow any form of non-violent extremism. We need to argue that promises of a global war on religion pitting Muslims against the rest of the world, they are nonsense. We need Muslims and their governments around the world to reclaim their religion from these sick terrorists, as so many are doing and quite rightly today…. And we need the strongest international focus on tackling this ideology, which is why here in the United Nations, United Kingdom is calling for a new special representative on extremism.

In other words, the prime minister of the UK does not differentiate between “violent extremists” like IS jihadists who murder and behead Christians and other innocent people, from “non-violent extremists” who disagree with the official view on 9/11 and 7/7. They are both “extremists” who must be dealt with severely.

The head of the government of the United Kingdom also makes no distinction between “right wing extremists” — whatever that means — and loathsome racists like Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

Mr. Cameron, are there no “left wing extremists”? Or do you mean to tell us that the left wing has only people of moderation, purity, and light? — like these angels below:

A couple of Austrian teen girls think they know it all, ISIS smacks them with reality

Selimovic (l) and Kesinovic (r)/Europics

NY Post: Two Austrian teens got way more than they bargained for when they abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists, and now they desperately want to come home.

Samra Kesinovic, 17, and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, would love to press the undo button on the last six months, during which they traded their comfortable existence in Europe for a life of evil engineered by terrorists. The teens are believed to be married, pregnant and living in the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria, Central European News reports.

That’s a change of heart from the April note they left behind for their parents that read: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah, and we will die for him.”

For weeks, social-media accounts believed to belong to the girls had been posting pictures and information that seemed to suggest the young duo enjoyed living a life of terror. The pictures showed the two girls smiling and wearing their new Muslim garb, sometimes while flanked by armed fighters. Some of the images appeared to show the girls carrying weapons.

But authorities in Austria say it was all an elaborate plan set up by ISIS to persuade the world that the two wanted to be the poster girls for jihad in Syria.

Some of the images may have been faked, including some that were taken years earlier of other women and re-posted on the girls social-media pages, Austrian authorities said. “It is clear that whoever is operating their pages it probably is not the girls and that they are being used for propaganda,” said one Austrian security official.

The teens apparently were lured to ISIS by propaganda preached at their local mosque. Clerics told them that the only way to know true peace was to head to Syria and take part in the holy war, officials said. The girls had started lecturing schoolmates about their lifestyle and were even suspected of being behind a vandalism attack at their school calling for jihad.

Now Kesinovic and Selimovic have had enough and are eager to return to their families, according to CEN. The girls reportedly managed to get word to their families they want to come home.

But reports also said the teens don’t feel they can flee because too many people now associate them with ISIS savagery. “The main problem is about people coming back to Austria,” said Austrian Interior Ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundboeck. “Once they leave, it is almost impossible.”

Kesinovic and Selimovic are among the bevy of women ISIS has recruited from around the world. Although its strict interpretation of Islamic law limits a woman’s place in society, women are often recruited into vital support roles through aggressive social-media campaigns that promise devout jihadist husbands.

In May, 16-year-old British twin sisters followed their older brother to Syria so they could marry jihadists, according to London’s Daily Mail. Several weeks ago, a 16-year-old was arrested at a French airport under suspicion she was traveling to Syria to join Islamist rebels.

A 15-year-old French girl named Nora, the daughter of Moroccan immigrants, was lured by Syria through Facebook, according to her brother Foad. She has said she wants to come home, and Foad traveled to Syria — but he was not allowed to leave with her. “As soon as they manage to snare a girl, they do everything they can to keep her,” Foad said. “Girls aren’t there for combat, just for marriage and children. A reproduction machine.”

Could have said, “I told you so…”, but you know how well that sits with teenagers.
