U.S. military does not support Commander-In-Chief Barack Obama

Dr. Eowyn:

Active and retired U.S. military officers are openly disagreeing with Obama’s policy toward the Islamic State (ISIL) jihadists, including none other than the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

That means the commander in chief of the world’s most powerful military does not have the respect and support of the troops.

The implications are troubling, not the least of which is that this will be exploited by America’s enemies, unless they are terminally stupid.

On September 10, 2014, 13 days after he had admitted not having a strategy on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, aka ISIS or IS), President Barack Obama finally spelled out the U.S. policy toward ISIL. (Watch and read his speech here.)

Note: Levant consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and southern Turkey.

Vowing the U.S. will increase its support to the Iraqi government fighting ISIL, Obama proclaimed an additional 475 servicemembers will be sent to Iraq. But he emphasized that “these American forces will not have a combat mission –- we will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq.

As reported by The Washington Post, Obama had ignored the advice of the military on how to deal with ISIL.

World IQ level over time (Source: University of Hartford)

I.Q. is the intelligence quotient used to measure the intelligence of every human on the planet. Most people in modern day society have an average I.Q. ranging between 89 and 100.

The larger the human population grows, the average human I.Q. seems to drop. Studies conducted in recent years have shown a direct correlation between population growth and the decline in the standard I. Q of countries such as New Zeland, Australia, Brazil and Mexico. The average world I.Q. for 2011 is calculated to be 88.54 — the lowest I.Q. rate in years. At that rate, for every 10 years a .30 I.Q drop occurs, so it is predicted that by the year 2050, the average I. Q. will have fallen to 89.32 from 91.64 in 1950.

2 US troops, 1 Polish sergeant killed in bombing near US Embassy in Kabul

taliban

Stars and Stripes: Two U.S. servicemembers and a Polish soldier were killed Tuesday when a suicide bomber struck a convoy of vehicles near the heavily guarded U.S. Embassy compound in Kabul, officials said.

The International Security Assistance Force said three of its servicemembers died “as a result of an enemy attack” in Kabul, but did not disclose the nationalities. Five ISAF members were reported wounded.

In Washington a defense official said two of the three fatalities were Americans. The third was a Polish sergeant, the Poland’s Defense Ministry said.

Separately, another coalition soldier was killed on Monday in an apparent insider attack in western Afghanistan, an ISAF statement said. A Pentagon official said the victim was an American.

Taliban insurgents claimed responsibility for the attack.

A Polish military spokesman identified the dead Polish servicemember as Sgt. Rafal Celebudzki. The spokesman told The Associated Press that Celebudzki was driving one of the vehicles that was struck in the bombing. He said two other Polish soldiers were among the wounded.

Hashmat Stanikzai, spokesman for the Kabul police, said that 13 civilians were wounded in the blast and that 17 civilian vehicles were damaged. An Interior Ministry statement condemned the attack and said it was carried out by the “enemies of peace.”

The attack occurred on the busy airport road, which is frequently jammed with rush-hour traffic early in the morning. Roads around the scene of the attack were blocked by security personnel. Windows on nearby government ministries and other buildings were broken.

A Taliban spokesman said a guerrilla named Bilal had driven an explosives-laden Toyota Corolla into the convoy driving through the capital.

“Bilal waited for this attack for a couple of days, watching the same road to make sure it would be accurate,” spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a telephone interview. “He targeted the middle of the convoy in order to avoid civilian casualties.”

The attack came amid a prolonged political crisis stemming from accusations of irregularities in the presidential election. A U.N.-supervised audit of the 8 million ballots cast was completed last week, but the results have still not been announced because the two candidates, former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah and former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani, disagree on the count.

The impasse and the resulting delay in the transfer of power from current President Hamid Karzai has raised concerns about Afghanistan’s political stability at a time of increased insurgent activity ahead of the coming withdrawal of all foreign combat troops at the end of this year.

RIP Soldiers.

Chuck Baldwin: Who killed Joan Rivers?

Chuck Baldwin is a radio broadcaster, syndicated columnist, and pastor dedicated to preserving the historic principles upon which America was founded.

The following is from his column of Sept. 11, 2014, “Who Killed Joan Rivers?.” I added the video of Rivers and the embedded links.

Chuck Baldwin

That most of Joan’s peers did NOT crucify her for her statement that Michelle Obama is a transvestite makes me tend to believe that they all know Joan told the truth and just didn’t have the courage to say it. Plus, she was JOAN RIVERS: the quintessential icon of the entertainment left.

(See Joan Rivers: ‘We all know’ Obama is gay and Michelle is a tranny“)

My question is, what if Joan Rivers actually told the TRUTH about the Obamas? What if it’s true that Barack and Michelle (Or is the name Michael?) really are homosexuals, that Michelle really is a man, and that they have pulled off the greatest political hoax in the history of the United States? The timing of Rivers’ death is an incredible coincidence, if it’s not true. That is for sure.

Rivers went in for what would be regarded as simple out-patient surgery. How many millions of Americans have gone through this, and similar surgeries, without a hitch? Granted, she was 81. But she was a healthy 81. Granted, fluke deaths do sometimes happen during “simple” surgeries. But what a coincidence! The most iconic female comedian in the entire country accuses Michelle Obama of being a transvestite, and less than two months later, she is dead. 

I realize that my good Christian brethren don’t like to think about this, much less discuss it, but there is absolutely no doubt that our federal government assassinates untold numbers of people all of the time. And I’m not talking about ISIS terrorists. I’m talking about American citizens. Can I prove it? Of course not. No one can–at least, not without risking becoming the next victim.

Think about it: if people inside our government could successfully carry out the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (and I’m sure they did), how difficult would it be to kill an entertainer, a political activist, or even a congressman? And what if the “dark” side of our government did have a hand in the events that occurred on this day back in 2001? Who inside the political and media establishments would dare to say anything about it–much less investigate it? Yes, this is another one of those politically incorrect “third rail” issues that no one wants to discuss. No one wants to believe that their own government–OUR own government–could be capable of the most despicably evil acts known to man.

But I am personally convinced that our CIA uses, not only their own agents, but highly secretive “dark” ops military personnel–even foreign assassins such as those who might be found in Israel’s Mossad and Great Britain’s SIS–to murder innumerable people whom they would consider “nuisances.” Yes, I said “dark” ops as opposed to “black” ops. “Dark” ops are highly-trained military troops or government agents who are either totally void of morals and scruples–or who are completely drugged out of their morals and scruples–and who are used by the “dark” side of government for the worst kind of murderous conduct.

For example, only the most gullible truly believe that Lee Harvey Oswald, and then the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby (and how many others surrounding the Kennedy assassination), died in a sequence of spectacular “coincidences.” And I will always suspect that Congressman Sonny Bono’s skiing accident was no accident.

Does anyone not suspect that Marilyn Monroe was the victim of foul play? And if she was, the only people who had a motive to kill her were politicians in the highest places. And is there anyone who really doubts that Princess Diana was murdered by the “dark” side of the British Crown? I don’t.

Furthermore, I am thoroughly convinced that Gordon Kahl was the target of government assassins. And I suspect that the recent death of Edgar Steele may have been orchestrated and engineered.

Then there is Mary Jo Kopechne and Vince Foster. Anyone who believes the “official” reports on the deaths of these two people is intellectually challenged, to say the least.

The list of people who may have been killed by government assassins-or even by politicians themselves–is a very, very long one.

Then there are the deaths of people whose murders were so cleverly concealed they would not even make the “suspicious deaths” list. Truthfully, only God knows just how many American citizens have been assassinated by their own government.

But even worse than the probable killings of untold Americans by our own government is the fact that the vast majority of the American people (including Christian people) have no interest in knowing the truth. The vast majority of us are willfully ignorant. What was that that Edmund Burke said?

So many Americans (including Christians) have the Caesarean philosophy “might makes right.” As long as America is the world’s mightiest empire (we haven’t been a constitutional republic for a long time), we can do no wrong. The end justifies the means. Yeah, I know: Pastors preach against that philosophy in every other area of life–just not in politics. Most of them seem to believe that when it comes to government killings, there is no such thing as unjustifiable homicide. Plus, pastors and Christians haven’t given a second thought to “Just War” since World War II.

The only part of Wisconsin Senator Carl Schurz’s historic statement most Americans–including most pastors and Christians–seem to remember is, “My country, right or wrong.” They seem to have totally forgotten the rest of the statement: “If right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”

There is no doubt in my mind that our government is getting away with murder–well, at least until the monsters meet God, that is. Was Joan Rivers the latest victim? We will never know. If you think the so-called investigation into her death will get to the truth, there is this bridge for sale you should know about.

[Referring to John Nolte’s column in Breitbart, RIP Joan Rivers: No One Will Ever Call Michelle Obama A ‘Tranny’ Again] Yes, Mr. Nolte, you are probably right: no one may ever call Michelle Obama a “tranny” again. But I wonder if there is more to it than the fear of being politically incorrect. I wonder if it’s the fear of being politically assassinated. If so, we have lost more than an iconic comedian; we have lost our country.

The Harley Biker – as reported by the MSM

angry lion

A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, D. C. when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage.

Suddenly, the lion grabs the girl by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside.

The girls’ parents scream helplessly.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him profusely.

A man standing by has watched the whole event, but without lifting a finger to help.

Addressing the Harley rider, the man says, “Sir, that was the most gallant and bravest thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.”

The Harley rider replies, “Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted because it’s the right thing to do.”

The man says, “Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living and what’s your political party affiliation?”

The biker replies, “I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.”

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of the event. On the front page is this screaming headline:

“U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH!”

….and that pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.

Obama announces U.S. “counterterrorism” policy against ISIL

Dr. Eowyn:

The Islamic State is not Islamic?
