The jihadist-in-chief has a "counterfactual worldview"?
Who'da thunk? He has not been spinning his "counterfactual worldview" for six years now?
Andrew McCarthy starts the article below with "We're being had. Again." I beg to differ. America is finally, finally waking up to the sales pitch Obama attempts with every breath! That said -
From National Review - The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist
We're being had. Again.
For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton "violent extremists" who purport to act in its name.
Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been "decimated." The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability. Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria -- even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama's futile air raids -- the president won't let go of the charade.
Hence, Obama gives us the Khorosan Group.
There is a reason that no one had heard of such a group until a nanosecond ago, when the "Khorosan Group" suddenly went from anonymity to the "imminent threat" that became the rationale for an emergency air war there was supposedly no time to ask Congress to authorize.
You haven't heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn't one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan - the Iranian-Afghan border region -- had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it. Continue here.
And about that jihadist lore - Gypsy RavenWraithe @flippinth3raya has been exposing/educating the twitterverse on the "Raya" - the black flag of islam for five years. I picked this article up from that site in 2010. It lends lends itself to this conversation in that - the Khorosan Group may not exist, but the Khorosan/Khorasan lore certainly does. The Khorasan ideology, the opportunity to live out prophecy, is a powerful/intoxicating incentive for young men & women looking to make their mark/place in the world.
I will not insert much here except for one small paragraph which pretty much wraps up the article - Khorasan - A Muslim Once and Future Kingdom.
In general, "Khorasan" doesn't appear to function as code for a particular jihadist organization, but as a more general symbol for victorious jihad -- coming from the East, faithful to the truth, unstoppable, ushering in the Caliphate, serving the cause of the Mahdi, and thus heralding the End of Days.
Read the whole thing here. You will be much more well informed than some would want you to be.

An "indispensable" nation does not "play whack-a-mole"
So Hussein Obama told the world yesterday on "60 Minutes."
Business Insider -
In a "60 Minutes" interview Sunday evening, Obama was asked why the US is contributing such a significant portion of the military coalition against the jihadist group known as the Islamic State or ISIS. Obama responded by arguing that other countries were not stepping up.
"When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don't call Beijing, they don't call Moscow. They call us. That's the deal," he quipped.
When CBS' Steve Kroft pressed Obama on the relatively small contributions from some of the US' coalition partners, Obama insisted such arrangements were expected.
"That's always the case. That's always the case. America leads. We are the indispensable nation," he said. "We have capacity no one else has. Our military is the best in the history of the world." More here.
AP - Hussein Obama - But "rather than play whack-a-mole and send U.S. troops wherever this occurs, we have to build strong partnerships,"
Once again we see the world renown community organizer organizing away. America will flash thru the skies ala Superman and our "partners" will do the foot (dirty) work. Fewer American soldiers will die and the left will bask in our prowess. The non-war will go on for a very long time. The U.S. armed and trained terrorists will stay in their own back yards - no need to secure our borders.

It was time well spent. Underline, emphasis, bold! - ISIS and fear porn
I found the hour to watch this video over a three day time period. It was time very well spent. Underline, emphasize, bold! NOT touched on in the video but intertwined is this subject.....
@flippinth3raya retweeted @Michael_CAFC - #ISIS You can't bomb extremism out of existence but you can make a lot of money making bombs and make more extremists .. and more bombs ..
Originally posted on Battlefield USA - You better be afraid!: As bombs start dropping in Syria and Iraq, the world is once again being asked to cower in fear of a shadowy terror group that most people hadn't heard of just a few months ago. But even the most cursory examination of ISIS's past, its connections, and the actors populating it reveal a very different story than the one we are being asked to believe in. Fake terrorists. Foreign backers. False flags. Meet the new boogeyman, same as the old boogeyman.

President of the United States MIA
Accepting the job as President of the United States requires that one take the Oath of Office: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
When a man, example Hussein Obama, swears (as he did) to uphold the Constitution, and subsequently repeatedly breaks that promise, his oath can be seen as nothing less than a lie.
There are millions who voted for him who now wonder why he even bothered, but the obvious answer is that he would not have been allowed thru the White House doors had he not made that pledge. The office of the President, though occupied, is not what The People intended. Our survival demands an answer to the question - who/what does now reside within those walls?
The photo work (you are leaving the American sector) above is from Battlefield USA. Think about it!

The Holder crystal ball
CCB? Credibility crystal ball? Whatever. This would be very funny if...
Muslim Convert Commits 'Workplace Violence', Beheads Woman At Food Plant
As we've learned to expect, authorities are saying it has no link to terrorism and are calling this savage and cowardly beheading of 54 year-old Colleen Hufford ... "workplace violence". According to authorities, there was no relation between the suspect and the two victims.
Yes he had been recently fired from the plant but even the most fervent of Muslim apologists must admit that beheading someone is a characteristic essentially unique to Islamists, the murderer recently converted to Islam, and has reportedly tried recently to convert co-workers to the same sicko religion.
[...] Officials with the Moore Police Department say the FBI is now involved in the investigation related to a brutal attack of workers at a food distribution plant.The piece goes on to make the ridiculous statement that "At this time, it is not known if the suspect's beliefs played a role in the attack."
Sgt. Jeremy Lewis says the alleged suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen had just been fired when he drove to the front of the business, hit a vehicle and walked inside.
He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife.
Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used at the plant.
Lewis confirms that Hufford was stabbed several times and that Nolen "severed her head."
At that point, Lewis claims Nolen met 43-year-old Traci Johnson and began attacking her with the same knife.
Officials say at that point, Mark Vaughn, an Oklahoma County reserve deputy and a former CEO of the business, shot him as he was actively stabbing Johnson.
"He's a hero in this situation," Sgt. Lewis said, referring to Vaughn. "It could have gotten a lot worse."
Authorities say it appears Nolen was attacking employees at random. ...
[...] The FBI is now looking into Nolen's background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself.
Nolen has a criminal history that dates back to 2011 that includes possession of a controlled substance, escape from detention and assault and battery on a police officer.
Interesting related read:
The act of beheading another human being has to be an example of man striving to reach his lowest common denominator within humanity. Many Americans are completely unaware that beheadings are not just something that takes place "somewhere over there." In reality, there have actually been many cases of beheadings in the U.S. over the past decade, although you would never know it by observing the main stream media. Almost all of these cases are suppressed or outright censored by government officials, agencies and media elites. The primary reason for this being the "religion" of those carrying out the beheadings. Islam. Our current administration does not wish to disrupt the false-indoctrination of Islam being a peaceful and loving religion.Much more here ...
(Remember Nidal Hasan?)
An interview with Daniel Greenfield - ISIS Rising
The question posed was - "How do we survive?....What is the one thing you can tell people to do to prepare for the decade?"
".....common sense means dealing with reality. The various threats that we are going to face, some of can be predicted, some of them can't be predicted, but what we can do is always stick close to reality, pay attention to what's really going on, and then we can be flexible and adapt to whatever is happening. It's the people who don't, who aren't in touch with common sense, who aren't in touch with reality, who aren't really paying attention to what's going on but who plug everything into their ideology, they are the ones who are a real danger."

Joseph Curl: Obama's breathtaking naivete at the United Nations
Joseph Curl writes at The Washington Times:
[...] President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of "international norms." But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam - a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America's role in it.Read the rest HERE.
[...] To Mr. Obama, there's no global conflict of ideology, just "pervasive unease in our world." To him, the strife is merely the "failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world." And to him, "it is one of the tasks of all great religions to accommodate devout faith with a modern, multicultural world."
[...] Simply believing something doesn't make it so. The president's desire for a world in which nations talk openly about their true feelings, perhaps share a good cry together, and sing kumbaya around the campfire, is the height of naivete.
So is this passage of his speech: " ... the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them, there is only us."
But Islam and the holy Koran on which Muslim militant groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State base their actions do call for the extermination of all who do not follow Islam, do demand that followers kill anyone who leaves the religion, do subjugate women. For the record, the Koran contains more than 100 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. ...
Curl's assessment is, of course, spot-on. Obama's naivete is simply jaw-dropping. In his speech before the United Nations on Wednesday he even quoted controversial Muslim cleric Sheikh Abdallah whose organization has endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Meanwhile, as we are stuck with this incompetent numbskull to lead America in its fight against ISLAMIC extremism for 2 more years, competent qualified critics are saying that U.S. airstrikes on ISIL and the Khorasan Group are weak and insufficient. One retired Army Major General noted that without more intensive strikes, over time the enemy learns to obviate the killing effects and becomes used to seeing planes orbiting overhead. Also, of course, he learns to hide and dig in. So if strikes come in drips, then the effects are more aggravating than lethal.
Bottom line, sit back and buckle-up America. Get ready and brace yourself as Islamic terrorism continues to grow pretty much undeterred. That is, until we get a qualified, competent, leader in the White House.
Is This The Reason For Eric Holder's Resignation?
Judge denies DOJ delay request on release of 'Fast and Furious' docs...— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) September 25, 2014
Finally, we're going to be able to say buh-bye to a race-baiting, overt, political operative of the WH that is without a doubt the most corrupt (and most racially devisive) attorney general in American history. He has served his racially-divisive master well. Unfortunately, he screwed truth, freedom, and America in the process.
John Hinderaker at Powerline put it this way:
"Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation this morning. He will stay on until a successor is nominated and confirmed. Holder has been a poor Attorney General. He will be remembered for Fast and Furious, consistently stonewalling Congress, and "civil rights" activism-which, however, had little to do with civil rights. Holder promoted gay marriage, refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, and did his best to enable voter fraud."Meanwhile, race-baiter Al Sharpton says he's helping the White House pick the next attorney general.
What could possibly go wrong?
"Wake up America. You will continue to be raped, pillaged and economically strip-mined until..."
In an earlier post today on the CDC, Ebola etc., I linked to this article because the same strategy/tactics being used on Syria are being used to "sell" America that government MUST save us from all these new diseases we are seeing or expect to see on our shores here pretty quick. A "must" read which ends with this warning - "Wake up America. You will continue to be raped, pillaged and economically strip-mined until you stand up for yourselves, but for now, it appears the fetal position suits you just fine."
From Zero Hedge - US Propaganda Enters Into Insane, Irrational Overdrive In Attempt to "Sell" War In Syria
Thanks to a dizzying barrage of lies, mainstream media fear-mongering and a couple of beheadings, the Obama Administration finally achieved its long sought after war in Syria. The tactic that proved most effective in mobilizing the American public back into a shivering, post-9/11 fetal position, was the same tactic used by elites in the UK to convince Scotland against voting for independence. That tactic, as I detailed in a recent post, is fear.
However, fear in itself is not enough. It must be coupled with endless slogans and misdirection by the mainstream media and politicians. It must lead the public to subconsciously embrace a thought process that is completely irrational. Such tactics can be labeled propaganda, and it results in a public suddenly supporting a war it strongly opposed only a year ago. All it takes is a little repackaging. Propaganda allows those who profit from war to push the American public into a tizzy of trepidation based on a couple of beheadings from ISIS, while not batting an eye over the daily beheadings that were simultaneously occurring in Saudi Arabia.
So the power structure and its impotent puppet, Barack Obama, intentionally pushed the American public into a frenzy of fear and finally got their little war. Nevertheless, serious people immediately began to call into question two very significant issues with respect to the aggression.
First, it appeared clear to almost everyone without a biased penchant for overseas death and destruction, that the war is completely unconstitutional and illegal no matter how you slice it. As I highlighted in the post, Obama's ISIS War is Not Only Illegal, it Makes George W. Bush Look Like a Constitutional Scholar:But the 2001 authorization for the use of military force does not apply here. That resolution -- scaled back from what Mr. Bush initially wanted -- extended only to nations and organizations that "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the 9/11 attacks.
Not only was ISIS created long after 2001, but Al Qaeda publicly disavowed it earlier this year. It is Al Qaeda's competitor, not its affiliate.
Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.
Senators and representatives aren't eager to step up to the plate in October when, however they decide, their votes will alienate some constituents in November's midterm elections. They would prefer to let the president plunge ahead and blame him later if things go wrong. But this is precisely why the War Powers Resolution sets up its 60-day deadline: It rightly insists that unless Congress is willing to stand up and be counted, the war is not worth fighting in the name of the American people.
So that's glaring problem number one. The second problem, which I highlighted in the post, The American Public: A Tough Soldier or a Chicken Hawk Cowering in a Cubicle? Some Thoughts on ISIS Intervention, is that:Did you know that the US government's counterterrorism chief Matthew Olson said last week that there's no "there's no credible information" that the Islamic State (Isis) is planning an attack on America and that there's "no indication at this point of a cell of foreign fighters operating in the United States"? Or that, as the Associated Press reported, "The FBI and Homeland Security Department say there are no specific or credible terror threats to the US homeland from the Islamic State militant group"?

Liberal Logic In A Nutshell
Every once in a while, even Bill Mahr gets it right.
Obama, the UN, and ... Ferguson?
By now everyone knows about Barack Obama's sweeping speech at the UN yesterday in which he talked about ISIS and 'extremism' in the Middle East (God forbid he'd actually identify it for what it is - ISLAMIC extremism), the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and Israeli-Palestinian issues. Unfortunately he just couldn't resist doing a replay of his 2009 Cairo Apology Speech - complete with the same absurd moral equivalence and Bush bashing - and somehow found moral equivalence in Islamists' chopping off of heads and murdering 'unbelievers' (those being anyone that doesn't subscribe to their particular brand of Muslim lunacy) with last month's Ferguson, Missouri riots following the shooting of a black teenager by a white policemen
So, what pray tell, does combating Islamic terrorists have to do with lawless blacks rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri? Logic, reason, common sense, and the facts all say 'absolutely nothing'!
First of all, skipping over for a moment the fact that no rational person should claim that beheadings and other murders, rape of women and young girls, torture, general mayhem, theft and extortion, kidnapping, and genocide by Muslim terrorists (not just by ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Khorasan but by a plethora of Islamic extremists all over the globe) morally equate to Ferguson in any way whatsoever, just because Barack Obama and Eric Holder see racism behind every tree and at every turn doesn't mean it's always there. More importantly, the Ferguson shooting is still under consideration by a grand jury and no charges have yet been made ... so why in the hell is Barack Obama inserting himself into that which is the responsibility of the courts?
The answer, of course, is that Barack Obama - ever the leftist ideologue - with deep contempt for America and anyone that disagrees with or opposes him just can't help himself from bashing America ... and like his AG Eric Holder, he himself is a racist that goes out of his way to see racism ... even if it isn't.
Ebola, Swine Flu, Enterovirus D68 - the CDC and YOU!
Thanks to some heavy duty propaganda and reverse psychology the jihadist-in-chief got the American public to support (to beg for) going to war in Syria. Something we vehemently opposed just a year ago!
Now we are being primed again.
CDC liars: "1 million Ebola cases by late January" - Jon Rappoport
In "World Health Organization: 21,000 Ebola cases by November if no changes" (AP/USA Today), 9/22, there is this:"CDC scientists...also predict that the two countries [Sierra Leone and Liberia] could have a staggering 550,000 to 1.4 million [Ebola] cases by late January."
CDC employees don't know they're alive unless they're lying.
And many of those lies are launched in order to promote vaccines. Shiny new Ebola vaccine, anyone?
The CDC made up one of these astonishing lies in the fall of 2009. Swine Flu, a dud of an epidemic, was the topic then.
Sharyl Attkisson, at CBS News, had just torn the CDC to pieces with her investigation, which uncovered the fact that the CDC had stopped counting cases of Swine Flu. The real reason? The overwhelming number of blood samples from likely Swine Flu patients showed no sign of Swine Flu or any flu.
The hoax of an epidemic had been revealed.
So what did the CDC do? They doubled down. They told a galactic lie!
Our open border situation is the foundation for the psyops being worked on us even now and will escalate with winter just around the corner. We begged for the war in Syria. Will we be begging for vaccinations and quarantines here very shortly? Below is some of the most recent kneading of the loaf of fear we are expected to eat.
CDC officials warn of virus outbreak in US As the Ebola outbreak worsens in West Africa, health officials are eyeing another crisis close to home: a rare respiratory infection that is spreading through the U.S.
And they are going to make it real, real easy and safe for us. We won't even have to go into a possibly contaminate doctor's office for our treatments!
