John Kerry lied again this morning, but you knew that because his lips were moving:
“As I said, the prime minister is welcome in the United States at any time. We have an unparalleled close security relationship with Israel and we will continue to. President Obama has done more to ensure the security of Israel by the creation of Iron Dome, by the development of weapons that are specifically calculated to be able to deal with Iran’s nuclear weapon’s problem…[etc].”
It’s at the 8-minute mark:

President Obama created the Iron Dome, eh?
In 2004, the idea for Iron Dome gained momentum with the installation of Brig. Gen. Daniel Gold as the head of the research and development bureau of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Gold was a strong backer of the antimissile project, even skirting army contracting regulations to secure financing. He also helped persuade key politicians to support the project.
Wow, Obama had a lot of global pull considering he was only a state senator from Illinois back then!
Kerry’s such an ass.
Last week, State Department spokesclown Marie Harf claimed that one ingredient in fighting terrorism is aiding in job creation so they have other opportunities and options. Obama agreed in an op-ed, writing that “the world has to offer today’s youth something better.”
If only this guy had been provided with some economic opportunity growing up:
The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.
But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.
According to the Obama/State Department model, the poor kid never had a chance!
The loose-lipped Department of Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson (I long for the days of the warming confidence radiated by Janet Napolitano) said Sunday that shoppers at the Mall of America should be “particularly careful” because of a threat made against the MOA by Al-Shabaab.
Up to now, this is how the Mall of America was kept secure (via Doug Ross):
This might shock you, but the authorities now think that might not be enough to deter terrorists.
The MOA has since beefed up security measures and isn’t only relying on the signs. Maybe the “gun free zone” signs should be re-enforced with State Department “violent extremism neighborhood watch” signs for an added layer of anti-terror protection.
The hashtag-happy bunch at the State Department are following up on President Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism” summit with even more embarrassment:

Sounds like “PC neighborhood Watch” meets “midnight basketball.”
Anybody want to “mentor” a member of ISIS?
The State Dept. didn’t even advise communities to offer those identified as potential brutal mass killers reset buttons. What gives?
Compare, contrast, and enjoy:

Excuse me, but HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The only aspect about anything Obamacare-related that’s “free” is the schadenfreude. The pitiful thing is that another politician will tell her similar lies and she’ll fall for it all over again. Repeat offender morons are how we’ve ended up in so much trouble.
Marie Harf at the State Department put the Obama anti-terror philosophy on full display last night. Even Chris Matthews couldn’t fully rationalize what she was saying:
MATTHEWS: Are we killing enough of them?
HARF: We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether —
MATTHEWS: We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?
HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people…
In those videos ISIS releases before they behead or burn people alive, I must have missed the part where they issue a demand for a “good job at a fair wage.” To be this delusional is to also deny the simple reality that ISIS (and many other terrorists organizations for that matter) already have f*#kloads of money and are heavily financed. JOBS? They’ve got jobs, Marie, and those jobs are to kill “infidels.”
It’s hard to believe that the United States still exists with these people running things, but give them time.
That worldview isn’t Harf’s or Kerry’s alone. It drizzles from the top down, as Obama demonstrates in an op-ed published today:
More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.
You see? It’s our fault.
Leave it to the community organizer-in-chief to turn religious fanaticism into a social justice problem.

A nation beams with pride: Biden gives shout out to ‘butt buddy’ while Obama plays with selfie stick

Don’t these guys just make you proud to be an American?
At a speech today, Joe Biden gave a shout out to “an old butt buddy”:
Not to be outdone, Obama hooked up with a selfie-stick — an invention created with narcissists like him in mind:
Meanwhile, ISIS shudders in fear.

Predicted Obama response: But this is nothing compared to the Crusades!
In France not long ago, Islamic terrorists killed many people in the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris before going to a Kosher grocery store and subsequently murdering four French Jews they were holding hostage.
If you’re President Obama, how do you phrase that? Simple:
Look, the point is this: my first job is to protect the American people. It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.
“Vicious zealots” killed a “bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” He must be talking about the Crusades again — you just can’t trust those Christians!
