Democrat Brad Sherman tries to sound relevant and intelligent but still doesn’t get it

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

California Congressman Brad Sherman is a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee so he must be a smart guy who knows what he is talking about, right? Well no, not right.  In a C-SPAN interview Sherman made the “profound” point that “If you destroy one power in the Middle East, you empower the other side, and the four groups that are fighting ISIS now are in many ways nearly as evil as ISIS itself, and in fact, those who are fighting against ISIS today on the ground have killed far more Americans than ISIS has.”

Saying that a group that replaces a defeated ISIS would be, “nearly as evil as ISIS itself,” should do nothing to dissuade Barack Obama or anybody from crushing ISIS. Even if a new group took ISIS’s place that would be a trade up for the free people of the world and a great first step. Nevertheless, the logic here seems to escape Sherman.

His failure to understand the value of crushing ISIS is a reminder of the overarching blind spot liberals have for understanding the concept of “dynamic scoring.” To liberal Democrats things that happen in our world always only follow a linear path. Thus since two and two is four in a calculator, in their view two and two will always result in four in real world situations as well.

This becomes very clear when liberals are in control of a level of government and decide they need still more of our money to buy votes. They will look at an item that is currently taxed at say $1.00 per unit and conclude that since 100,000 of those units are typically sold each year providing a $100,000 in tax revenue, if they double the tax to $2.00 per unit they will double the yield to $200,000! When consumers resist and either don’t buy as many of these items or go to a nearby jurisdiction to buy them, causing a net loss of income they never learn the dynamic scoring lesson.

Sherman and other Democrats can’t understand that if ISIS is flattened, dynamic scoring will take the fight out of other groups in the region. Our Islamic enemies can read and watching television gets the word to those who can’t. If the job is done right they won’t be quick to sign up to fight a military with planes and rockets.

Liberal Democrats just don’t get that we are fighting seventh century savages that respect brutal force and little else.

Obama’s Strategy on ISIS and Ukraine: Voting Present

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The Obama administration has a serious problem dealing with major crises that effect America or its allies.  In non-threating situations this White House always manages to back the terrorist elements, as in Libya, Egypt and Syria. Even though the liberal media doesn’t dare admit it, the Islamic State is a result of Obama’s foreign policy of siding with America-hating terrorists.  

During the past week the Administration has been floating trial balloons, hoping to find talking points that will register with the American people before the midterm elections.  At a news conference in Estonia, Obama was unclear about what his strategy might be. He claimed to seek the destruction of ISIL, yet later mentioned that he wanted to transform these terrorist thugs into a “manageable problem.” Given the history of this White House’s support for terrorists he would clearly prefer the later. In the future he can wiggle out of tough questioning by claiming to have said one thing or another.

Pentagon talking heads maintain the U.S. military can degrade, disrupt, and destroy ISIS “targets” in Iraq but cannot destroy ISIS as an organization. In other words a “Police Action” ala Vietnam.  Obama’s Ukrainian strategy is just talk and sanctions as part of a smart power policy. Unfortunately, Smart Power is only useful when used by smart people. Looks like Russia has won that battle.

During a speech in Maine, Joe Biden added to the confusion with a hard line rant against the vicious jihadist group ISIS. He vowed that we don’t retreat, we don’t forget and “we will follow them to the gates of Hell until they are brought to justice.” Once the pollsters find out what appeals to the Democrat Party base they will run with it. In the meantime, troops on the ground are confused by the conflicting strategy of this administration. Ground troops in Iraq are restricted to American Embassies and remain there only to prevent another Benghazi.  Most likely Iraq will divide into three countries: Islamic State, Iranian West and Kurdistan.  

Obama’s handling of the boarder crisis, brazen violence of the Islamic State and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will be a factor in the midterm elections. The Democrats and their sycophants in the press will insist that Obama is not running for office but his policies and actions will be seen on the ballot. If terrorists manage to strike the United States with missing Jets from Libya, a defiant Obama will be on the ballot for the purpose of showing toughness prior to the election.  But it will convince no one. Americans understand that this administration has no strategy to keep America safe. (2)

ISIS Islamic thugs target the Catholic Church as their true ultimate enemy

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Islam has been at war with the Catholic Church for fourteen hundred years. It may be politically correct to describe Islam’s war as one   against “Christianity,” but true Islamists have hated the Roman Church well before the advent of other Christian churches. Now and always these mongrels have known the true identity of their ancient enemy.

During the papacy of Pope John Paul II, Islamists tried to murder him in Rome. The attempt on John Paul was carried out by a Turkish sniper named Mehmet Ali Agca who shot him four times. By the hand of God the Pope did not die, but in the collective mind of these seventh century thugs the failure galls them as though it happened yesterday. Yet they have been at this for a long time so they remain very patient and willing to keep searching for the next opportunity.

According to reliable sources that opportunity might present itself soon.  

An August 25 report, released by an Italian intelligence agency, tells of it having uncovered a plot by ISIS to murder Pope Francis. The ISIS leaders are determined that theirs be the principle voices  of the radical Islamic world and carrying out this assassination would give them firm control over their sick, sub-human world forever.

The excuse used by ISIS to justify this murder is that Pope Francis “…bears false witness against Islam and serves as the greatest exponent of Christian religions.”        

As might be expected, the Vatican is downplaying the seriousness   of this threat. But Italian civil authorities appear to be quite concerned. They have heightened security in general and around the Vatican in particular. Seaports and airports are being closely guarded and more attention is being given to the air space above the Vatican.

The order to start attacking Christian churches here in our country may already have been given by the world wide ISIS command.

This past weekend three Christian houses of worship including a Catholic church have been spray painted with words from the  “Qur’an 3:151.”

The verse reads, “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.”

New York Times quotes convicted perjurer to lie about NYPD

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

“All the news that’s fit to print,” the motto of the New York Times is a cynical lie perpetuated to fool its smug liberal readers into feeling validated in their narrow world view.  

Like most liberals the New York Times has clung to the fantasy that Islam is the, “Religion of Peace.”  Since it is demonstrably false one can only assume the cowards at the Times are knowingly lying and bias in how they select what news is “fit to print.”

The Times has been carrying the water for Comrade Bill de Blasio’s efforts to give the Islamists a freer hand to carry out their ongoing Jihad against New York City.

On May 11th and May 12th they published a story and an editorial attacking the NYPD’s anti-terrorism unit’s tactic of trying to enlist Muslims as informers who would warn the police of terror plots being hatched by fellow Muslims.

The “news” story featured a man named Bobby Hadid, a fired police officer. It quotes him as asking, “What does that have to do with terrorism?” when presented with evidence of terrorist plots produced by spying on those who have declared themselves our enemies.  

Hadid’s “question” became the driving point to the Times’ article because it validated their subversive position on terrorism.  

Hadid was fired by the NYPD because he was convicted of perjury in a murder case. But  in the twisted logic of the Times’ “all the news that’s fit to print” motto, informing readers Hadid was a convicted liar didn’t “fit” until the 33ard paragraph thus hiding it in plain sight.    

The Times made no attempt to impeach Hadid’s credibility because he was, “…convicted of perjury in a case unrelated to his counterterrorism work.” Really?

The New York Times is on the side of the terrorists and will help them at every opportunity. It wants terrorists tried in civilian courts in Manhattan where they can be freed by far Leftist juries. The Times is worried about the “potentially uncomfortable” nexus between crime-fighting and anti-terrorism.”

The feckless liars at the Times will use whatever means they can to undermine the efforts of the Police Department to protect the people of New York because they have deluded themselves to believe it is the cops that are the enemy and the “Religion of Peace” is the victim.

This is another reminder of why we can never turn our back on the liberal media.

Bergdahl release a richly deserved political and PR catastrophe for Obama

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

After approximately five years of captivity, Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the only American held prisoner by the Taliban, was released to the United States military in Afghanistan. The Taliban (Haqqani) agreed to return Bergdahl in exchange for five Afghan terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay. The agreement was negotiated in and mediated by Qatar. Obama ignored the nation’s longtime policy of not negotiating with terrorists in order to obtain Bergdahl’s release. In the deal, Qatar will take custody of the freed Taliban prisoners. 

Feeling confident that he knocked other scandals out of the headlines, Obama took his victory lap by pronouncing that the return of Bergdahl “is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield.” Excluding Mexico, that is. Of course those left behind in Benghazi were NOT in uniform.

In the words of the late Paul Harvey “and now for the rest of the story”

Soon after the media reported Bergdahl’s release, questions arose about the circumstances of his disappearance and eventual capture by the Taliban. Before he went missing, Bergdahl sent an email to his parents in which he complained about his disillusionment with the Afghan war and penned his now infamous “I am ashamed to even be an American” declaration.

Upon walking away from his unit in the dead of night, SGT Bergdahl left his gear, weapon and a note renouncing his American citizenship. (9) The Pentagon would later conclude that Bergdahl was not captured, but had indeed abandoned his unit. (4)(7)  Fellow soldiers from his platoon are now telling the world that Bergdahl is NOT a hero, but a “deserter whose selfish actions costs the lives of six fellow soldiers searching for him.”  (8) This is in sharp contrast with the official White House narrative on the Sunday Talk shows in which known liar Susan Rice stated that Bergdahl had served “with honor and distinction and was captured on the battlefield.” 

Soldiers who abandon their units in a war zone are subject to prosecution in accordance with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. They can be charged with desertion or the lesser charge of being absent without leave (AWOL).

People Died

The search for Bergdahl resulted in the death of at least six men as a result of ambushes, firefights improvised explosive devices. When the Pentagon finally determined that he had deserted his post it was decided that forces would forgo any additional efforts to rescue Bergdahl. We would no longer risk good men to “rescue” someone who had abandoned his platoon. The seriousness of Bergdahl’s actions cannot be overstated if proven that they had  caused the death to his fellow soldiers.

In the custody of the Taliban (Haqqani)

Fox News’ James Rosen spoke to an unnamed senior government official who stated that the U.S. intelligence community has a sizable file on Army SGT. Bowe Bergdahl while he lived among the Taliban. The official told Rosen that “many within the intelligence community harbor serious, outstanding concerns not only that Bergdahl may have been a deserter but that he may have been an active collaborator with the enemy.” (1) If the intelligence community knew of SGT Bergdahl providing aid to the Taliban, Barack Obama had to have been briefed sometime during the last 5 years. And were Bergdahl NOT guilty of desertion and collaboration with the Taliban, why did military brass demand soldiers in his unit sign nondisclosure agreements? From experience, this may have been for investigative purposes. But it was far more likely a measure to avoid embarrassment of Mr. Obama. (2)

Upon his release, Bergdahl was transferred to the Landstuhl military medical facility in Germany where he will have a medical and mental evaluation and treatment. ABC news has reported that there are legitimate concerns about Bergdahl’s physical and mental health which the network claims to have deteriorated over the years. Naturally this would mean that he is no shape to be interrogated about his actions. In fact it will require a significant amount of time “before he can be questioned about his experience with the Taliban.” It’s a safe bet that “significant amount of time” will stretch beyond this year’s elections.

It’s standard operating procedure to conduct a review of a repatriated Prisoner of War (POW) to determine the activities of the individual. Such investigations are used to award meritorious behavior or punish collaboration with the enemy, especially as it might result in great harm to fellow POWs. If he is undergoing military review it’s a safe bet that a White House representative will be present in order to make certain the review comes to the “proper” conclusions. There will certainly be a political angle injected in the investigation of SGT Bergdahl. After all Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey made the statement that “the Army might still pursue an investigation that could lead to desertion charges against Bergdahl” (11) If the White House attempts to get Bowe Bergdahl off the hook after it has been clearly shown that he is guilty of desertion and treason, it will turn into a much bigger scandal that those the Regime had hoped to knock out of the headlines!

Who are the terrorists Obama turned loose in order to obtain the release of a possible traitor?

The five Guantanamo Bay prisoners swapped for Bergdahl are:

Khair Ulla Said Wali Khairkhwa, Captured in 2012, former Taliban interior minister possible close ties with Osama bin Laden. He was one of the major opium drug lords in western Afghanistan.

Mullah Mohammad Fazl, December 2001.  Former commander of the opposition terrorist to the Northern Alliance and was the former chief of army staff. Wanted by The Hague for war crimes committed during the Afghanistan’s civil war. He is wanted by the UN for the massacre of thousands of Afghan Shiites. This guy should have never been freed.

Mullah Norullah Noori, December 2001. Former Governor and high intelligence value

Abdul Haq Wasiq Former intelligence service deputy chief, an intelligence provider to al Qaeda.

Mohammad Nabil Omari, Former chief of communications and aided al Qaeda fighters escape from Afghanistan to Pakistan.
All this so Obama could get the VA, NSA, IRS and the Benghazi scandal off of the front page.
