Why Obama Can't Say His Spies Underestimated ISIS
On 60 Minutes, the president faulted his spies for failing to predict the rise of ISIS. There's one problem with that statement: The intelligence analysts did warn about the group.
Nearly eight months ago, some of President Obama's senior intelligence officials were already warning that ISIS was on the move. In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq.
But in an interview that aired Sunday evening, the president told 60 Minutes that the rise of the group now proclaiming itself a caliphate in territory between Syria and Iraq caught the U.S. intelligence community off guard. Obama specifically blamed James Clapper, the current director of national intelligence: "Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria," he said.
Reached by The Daily Beast after Obama's interview aired, one former senior Pentagon official who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq was flabbergasted. "Either the president doesn't read the intelligence he's getting or he's bull<snip>ting," the former official said.
September 28, 2014, 12:22 pmHypocritical Liberals...
Bill Maher did something extraordinary on Friday's Real Time on HBO: he destroyed hypocritical liberals by pointing out how much more they are outraged by infractions against their precious code of political correctness, while remaining deafeningly silent when it comes to true atrocities carried out by Islamic extremists.
Maher, an icon of leftist thought, showed true disdain for his own kind, especially those who so easily forget that Muslim nations carry out terrible punishments against anyone and for the minutest of reasons.
Through his own lens as a liberal, Maher explains how "liberal, Western culture is not just different [but] better" than what is found in Muslim countries.
He began by jabbing President Obama for insisting that ISIS is not Islamic. Maher joked:
Well, maybe they don't practice the Muslim faith the same way he does... but if vast numbers of Muslims across the world believe -- and they do -- that humans deserve to die for merely holding a different idea, or drawing a cartoon, or writing a book, or eloping with the wrong person -- not only does the Muslim world have something in common with ISIS, it has TOO MUCH in common with ISIS.
Before he jumped on liberals, Maher explained how to be one:
To count yourself a liberal, you have to stand up for liberal principles: free speech, separation of church and state, freedom to practice any religion, or no religion, without the threat of violence. Respect for minorities, including homosexuals, equality for women.
But here is where it gets good -- Maher is right on point in his assessment of how mind-numingly hypocritical "his people" can be:
It amazes me how here in America, we go nuts over the tiniest violations of these values, while gross atrocities are ignored across the world. Jonah Hill yells, 'Suck my d***, f*ggot!' at the paparazzi, and an entire nation goes into Twitter outrage until he is forced to perform that most debasing of acts -- the talk show apology tour. Meanwhile in 10 countries, actually sucking a d*** can get you stoned, and not in a good way.
We hear a lot about the Republican 'War on Women.' It's not cool Rush Limbaugh called somebody a slut. Okay, but Saudi women can't vote, or drive, or hold a job, or leave the house without a man.
Overwhelming majorities in every Muslim country say a wife is always obliged to obey her husband. That all seems like a bigger issue than evangelical Christian bakeries refusing to make gay wedding cakes.
Maher even went after atheists -- specifically the atheist organization at Yale who complained that an ex-Muslim woman, and victim of genital mutilation in Somalia, was going to speak at the university because she "did not represent the totality of the ex-Muslim experience." Incredulously, Maher said:
Meaning what? The women who like mutilation? You're atheists, you should be attacking religion, not siding with the people who hold women down and violate them, which apparently you will defend in the name of multiculturalism. And then lose your sh*t when someone refers to Chaz Bono by the wrong pronoun.
Donald Sterling isn't allowed to own a team because he told his mistress not to post pictures with black guys. Okay, but if we're giving no quarter to intolerance, shouldn't we be starting with the mutilators, and the honor killers? Or will that divert us from the real problem? That when Mel Gibson drinks, he calls women sugar t*ts.

Today we've once again been exposed to the savage barbarism of Islam, and most disturbing, it's right here in our homeland.
A woman was beheaded in her workplace by a man who had tried to convert others to Islam. If not for the fact that the Chief Operating Officer of the company was exercising his Second Amendment rights, the carnage would have been worse.
I fully expect the Obama administration to classify this as "workplace violence." God bless these women who were savaged and their families. Molon Labe.

September 26, 2014, 12:06 pmA Cheating Wife...
A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It's after midnight.
While en route home, he asks the cabby if he would be a witness.
The man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act.
For $100, the cabby agrees.
Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabby tip toe into the bedroom.
The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back and there is his wife in bed with another man!
The husband puts a gun to the naked man's head.
The wife shouts, 'Don't do it! I lied when I told you I inherited money'.
HE paid for the Porsche I gave you.
HE paid for our new cabin cruiser.
HE paid for your Miami Heat season tickets.
HE paid for our house at the lake.
HE paid for your African safari and 4 x 4.
HE paid for our country club membership, and HE even pays the monthly dues!'
Shaking his head from side-to-side, the husband lowers the gun.
He looks over at the cabby and says, 'What would you do'?
The cabby replies, 'I'd cover him with that blanket before he catches a cold.'
September 26, 2014, 10:17 amJudge Napolitano...
n Fox News' Special Report on Thursday, contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano ripped Eric Holder's tenure as Attorney General to shreds, blasting him on every possible facet of his responsibilities in the joband his faithfulness to the constitution and to the American people.
"Every time that Barack Obama has bent, broken, avoided or evaded the constitution or federal law, Eric Holder has been at his side, cheering him on, providing intellectual cover, and purporting to give the president legal advice authorizing what the President wanted to do. From allowing the President to kill Americans, from allowing the President to spy on Americans, from personally authorizing the invasion of privacy of our colleague James Rosen, from seizing property from people who weren't even charged with crimes .. Eric Holder has been behind all of it."
The Judge went on to say he was the least faithful to the constitution of any Attorney General of modern times (though he misspoke and said President, which is also probably true.)
September 25, 2014, 6:36 pmInteresting - on Holder
As a longtime, current employee of the Justice Department told us, Mr. Holder and his subordinates have "racialized and radicalized" the department "to the point of corruption." They have "embedded politically leftist extremists in the career ranks who have an agenda that does not comport with equal protection or the rule of law; who believe that the ends justify the means; and who behave unprofessionally and unethically. Their policy is to intimidate and threaten employees who do not agree with their politics, and even moderate Democrats have left the department, because they were treated as enemies by administration officials and their lackeys. Another black employee who has worked for the Justice Department for decades said to me, 'There is no justice left in Justice under this administration.'"

As this poll demonstrates, the American people recognize that Mr. Holder is an ideologue who considers himself part of Mr. Obama's political team first and the attorney general a very distant second. His first loyalty has been to helping the president break, bend, ignore or fail to enforce the law, doing untold damage to our constitutional system and the rule of law.
As former Justice Department prosecutor Andy McCarthy has said, the Justice Department under Mr. Holder has become "a sort of full-employment program for progressive activists, race-obsessed bean counters and lawyers who volunteered their services during the Bush years to help al Qaeda operatives file lawsuits against the United States."
There is no way to know how long it will take to repair the damage that Mr. Holder has d

September 25, 2014, 12:27 pmEurope is for Real...
In which our whimsical host, Andrew Klavan, takes a look at the faith-based story of a young man who dies and goes to the promised land, only to find that it's a giant lie propped up by the American taxpayer and military.
I'm Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth.
Today, in a special religious edition of the Revolting Truth, we'd like to take a look at the new faith-based bestseller, "Europe Is For Real."
"Europe is for Real" tells the inspiring story of the adorable 5-year-old Iowa boy Derpy Lipschitz. One fateful day, in April of 2005, little Derpy complained to his mother of stomach pains and was rushed to the hospital where doctors discovered he had accidentally swallowed a copy of the New York Times while trying to bite the head off his pet canary.
Derpy was taken into surgery but the emergency worsened when the doctors tried to remove the Times' op-ed page from the child's colon and couldn't determine which was which. In the confusion, a column by Paul Krugman traveled through the boy's bloodstream to his head causing instantaneous brain death.
It was then that a miracle happened.
As 5-year-old Derpy later told his parents, he felt his soul leave his body. It traveled down the hall to a broom closet where he saw Mommy praying to Jesus, although she pronounced it Hay-soos. Then, in a spiral of light, Derpy felt himself lifted up to a wondrous place beyond his wildest imagination. It was a place where there was never any war, health care was free, and energy was green. Yes, Derpy was in Europe.
Well, the surgery was a success. The doctors were able to remove the New York Times from Derpy's brain and colon in a revolutionary procedure called pulling the head out of the ass. When Derpy woke up in the hospital room, he saw his parents standing over him smiling, and he said, "Daddy, I've been to Europe!"
And Derpy's Daddy said to him, "Derpy, Europe is not for real. Europe is an expensive socialist fantasy which was paid for by American capitalism for 65 years and is now going broke anyway. They financed their so-called free health care with money they would have had to spend on defense if our military didn't keep them safe. Oh, and by the way, the pharmaceutical companies can give them their meds at cheap rates because we pay inflated prices that pick up the slack and fund research and development.
As for European energy being green, ten years ago Germany trumpeted a transition to renewable resources that was supposed to create jobs, provide cheap electricity and save the planet. It failed on every front and all across the European Union, green energy initiatives are being quietly abandoned.
It's true there's no war in Europe because they're protected from outside attack by America. But as Socialism drains the money and the life out of their societies, and their populations quickly dwindle, the European nations are being conquered from within by Islamist monsters who rape and vandalize almost at will. No one's allowed to criticize these animals because that would violate a pious leftist nonsense called multiculturalism... and since leftism has destroyed every vestige of patriotism on the continent, no one has the conviction or the guts to stand up to this alien evil anyway.
So you see, Derpy, Europe is just the myth of a false religion called leftism. But don't worry: Heaven is for real. Although Mommy can't go there because of what she did with Haysoos.
I'm Andrew Klavan with the Revolting Truth.
September 25, 2014, 12:23 pmSeth Meyers on Obama...
Last night on Late Night, host Seth Meyers opened up the flood gates on President Obama's strategy for fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Meyers starts strong, hitting Obama on his attempt to walk the peacenick/warmonger border by refusing to call the conflict with ISIS a war. He then moves directly into our being on the same side as Bashar al-Assad, and follows-up by completely trashing Congress.
Finally, Meyers absolutely blisters the moderate rebels storyline.
"Do we really think moderate rebels can stop ISIS? No, but it's a nice thing to say. 'Moderate rebels'. Try it at a dinner party. 'What we need to do is arm moderate rebels.' Everyone will nod and say 'I agree.'
"Hey, won't ISIS just take the guns from the moderate rebels? Yes, that is what will happen."
Meyers finishes up by saying that, yes, everything sucks. Which is something anyone can agree with these days.
President Obama's policies are more up for parody now than ever in his time on the national stage, although even now comedians still generally give him a pass personally. But that get out of jail free card is just about out of uses.

Global Warming Fanatics Won't Like The Results Of A New Study
A new study suggests that the warming trend on the West Coast over the last century was not caused by human activity but more so by a change in the winds. Using independent data from 1900 to 2012, researchers showed that the temperature change is "primarily attributed to changes in atmospheric circulation." Get the whole story HERE.

September 23, 2014, 12:26 pmobama/bush
n Tuesday, The New York Times corrected a front page story from September 11, 2014, in which the Times falsely claimed that George W. Bush had not sought international alliances during the war in Iraq. Here's the correction:
An article on Sept. 11 about President Obama's speech to the nation describing his plans for a military campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, gave an incorrect comparison between efforts by the president to seek allies' support for his plans and President George W. Bush's efforts on such backing for the Iraq war. The approach Mr. Obama is taking is similar to the one Mr. Bush took; it is not the case that, "Unlike Mr. Bush in the Iraq war, Mr. Obama has sought to surround the United States with partners."
It only took the Times two weeks to correct this basic factual error. But the error has a point: to differentiate good, wise, holy and just Obama from evil supervillain George W. Bush. The New York Times is simply fulfilling Obama's central life function: not being George W. Bush.
In point of fact, Barack Obama had a total of nine allies in his battle against ISIS as of September 5. George W. Bush's original "coalition of the willing" had 48 countries as members.
