Formerly fawning reporters turn on Obama

This is Barack Obama’s full press conference at the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey which includes several reporters asking tough questions regarding U.S. policy in pursuing Islamic Jihadists.  The usually compliant media openly expressed frustration with Obama’s weak response to ISIS — which he alone refers to as ISIL.

In this shorter clip, CNN’s Jim Acosta bluntly asked, “I wanted to go back to something you said to Margaret (Brennan) earlier when you said you have not underestimated ISIS’s abilities. This is an organization that you once described as a ‘JayVee Team,’ that evolved into a force that has now occupied territory in Iraq and Syria and is now able to use that safe haven to launch attacks in other parts of the world. How is that not underestimating their capabilities? And how is that “contained,” quite frankly? And I think a lot of Americans have this frustration that they see that the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS. I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, is why can’t we take out these bastards?”

Obama says the United States must welcome the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, who are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks” — something experts say is virtually impossible. He makes this claim despite the fact that at least two of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.

In the current GQ magazine which features Obama on the cover, he looked ahead to life after his 15 remaining months in the White House saying he has fantasized about owning a professional basketball team or holding the commissioner’s job for the National Basketball Association. Obama, an avid sports fan, couldn’t do as much damage in the sporting arena as he has as the ineffectual leader of the free world and an embarrassing Commander-in-Chief.

Since Jeff Flake routinely plays basketball with Obama perhaps he could join the soon-to-be-former president at his dream job with the NBA.  It would give the unpopular Flake another chance to take his shirt off and free up the Arizona senate seat for an actual conservative.

    This headlined article “French President Francois Hollande welcomes refugees despite Paris attack,” reminds me of Winston Churchill’s brilliant quote about appeasement:
    “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

    Churchill also said, “And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.” 

    Unfortunately, this thinking doesn’t play into the narrative of liberal teachers in leftist government (formerly “public”) schools. Ask any teenager today if they know who Winston Churchill was. I guarantee you’ll be met with a blank stare.It’s up to parents to instill knowledge or America is lost.

    I just called Gov. Ducey’s office and left a message thanking him for his wisdom in disallowing the resettlement of Syrian so-called “refugees” into Arizona during this time of radical upheaval. He’s been taking flack from the left for his position, but it’s one we should all commend him for taking. I didn’t vote for him, but his concern for safety over political correctness wins him points with me.

    This is the telephone number to reach the office switchboard and leave a message: 602.542.4331
    It takes a minute and it lets him know there are those who are grateful to him.

    This video is well worth watching, folks.

      She has one of the best websites on the Internet (aside from SRAZ). I hope many are taking advantage of it. She’s a wealth of information.

    Well, it took 7 long years but now CNN has become racist!

    Problem is: it’s far too little and way too late.

    Reported today:
    Honduras detains Syrian refugees headed to the U.S., holding fake Greek passports.

    Jewish teacher stabbed by 3 men on bicycles, one man wearing a tee shirt with an ISIS symbol.

    Now learning that the terrorists in the Bataclan concert hall gutted wounded concert goers as they lay on the floor.

    Meanwhile, John Kerry tells US Embassy employees in Paris that the Charlie Hebdo terrorist act earlier this year could be rationalized.

    One bright spot—–the computer hacking group known as Anonymous has been successful in shutting down, at least temporarily, over 5,000 twitter accounts with ISIS ties.
    (Too bad that Twitter and Facebook can’t clean up their own houses on their own.)

    Don’t get to excited about the media turning on Obama. Even sharks will turn on their own when a fellow shark is mortally wounded. Once Hillary is running, they will all swim in a pack to protect her.
