More Warnings On ISIS
Military and political leaders are ratcheting up their warnings regarding the threat America faces from the jihadists of ISIS. For example:
“ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything.”
“Well, the immediacy is in the number of Europeans and other nationalities [including Americans]who have come to the region to become part of that ideology. And those folks can go home at some point. …because of open borders and immigration issues, it’s an immediate threat. That is to say, the fighters who may leave the current fight and migrate home.”
“Beyond anything we’ve ever seen.” “An immediate threat.” “Rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city.” And this is the group that Barack Obama once dismissed as “junior varsity.”
By the way, Obama is getting slammed for the terrible optics of cutting loose on the golf course while the Foley family was publicly grieving the loss of their son, Jim. Ezra Klein, a leading Obama apologist, tweeted: “…golfing today is in bad taste. Not sure how to reconcile.“
The New York Daily News ripped Obama’s “Golf War” on its front page yesterday. The article added, “President Obama put his own spin on the oft-quoted advice of predecessor Teddy Roosevelt: speak strongly and carry a nine iron.”
These sorts of episodes — optics, scandals and policy blunders (more on that below) — are seriously hurting Obama in the polls. “Big deal,” you may be thinking. “He’s not on the ballot again.” That’s true, but his allies are — and Obama is hurting them too.
A recent Marist poll found that voters are angry with Obama, and by a 10-point margin they said planned to vote against Democrat candidates because of Obama.
Everything Republicans say and do must make this election a referendum on Obama: Do voters want to elect more Democrats who will support Obama? Or do they want to elect Republicans who will fight him?

My Opinion: I feel the same way Nick Powers does: let’s kill them all and let God sort them out. But if anyone does it, it’ll be us Veterans. I can’t see the new “Libtard Class” picking up a weapon even if the ISIS/ISIL knock on their doors. But a Vet will answer the door with a smile, a fully loaded weapon, and a big ass grin on their faces. We need to open a can of Ass Whippin’, and we need to open it now.
And, thank you, Nick, for putting into words how all Veterans are feeling now.
