What Exactly Is Obama “Exit Strategy” for ISIS War?



By John W. Lillpop

Weeks ago, Barack Obama took to national television to inform America and the world of his grand “strategy” for dealing with ISIS, the deadliest  terrorist organization in the history of the planet. 

Will all of the gall and arrogance of a heavily-decorated, career veteran whose specialty is war, the naïve leader of the free world let it be known that his strategy was to “degrade” and “destroy” the Islamic State, which, the Muslim-sympathizing president reminded us, is neither Islamic nor a state.

To those who know the devious, deceitful side of Obama, this was simply another elaborate head fake, disguised as a military plan. Furthermore, the Obama strategy was missing a key element: An exit strategy.

Why is an exit strategy important, you ask? 

It is important because, Pentagon sources are saying the Obama war could last years!

Is the American public ready for another Middle-East war that could last years?
As reported:

Briefing reporters on the strikes inside Syria conducted by coalition forces on Monday night into Tuesday morning, Lieutenant General Bill Mayville confirmed that those strikes were “only the beginning.”

Mayville detailed the Pentagon’s strategy to “degrade and destroy” ISIS, which will focus primarily on Iraq before shifting to the Syrian theater. “Look at what we’re trying to do regionally,” he said. “We are focused first in Iraq because we have a partner in Iraq to work with; the Iraqi Security Forces, the Iraqi government.”

“We are trying to disrupt their support bases while we enable in Iraq the Iraqi Security Forces — with the help of partners — to dislodge and ultimately remove ISIL from Iraq,” he added.

“Could this take years?” NBC reporter Jim Miklaszewski asked.

“I would think of it in terms of years, yes,” Mayville replied.

Mayville was not referring to the administration’s strategy of vetting, extricating, arming, training, and reinserting Syrian rebel forces into northern Syria to fight ISIS (and Assad), which the administration admits will take years. Mayville is only referring here to the campaign to degrade and dislodge ISIS from Iraq.”

Of course, Obama is loathe to think in terms of win or victory when it comes to war.  Thus, it seems safe to assume that the Obama exit strategy is at follows:

Surrender and retreat, date to be announced as conditions warrant!

Unable to Secure White House, Obama Makes War in Syria!


By John W. Lillpop


Poor Barack Obama! 

It all started out so well, what with being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize before even unpacking his basketball toys at the White House!  From that point forward, The One has been constantly challenged to maintain his anti-war pacifism in a world more and more prone to resort to war rather than talk..

Obama’s inability to nudge humanity toward diplomacy and peace reached the point where even the White House was vulnerable to invasion, as happened on successive days last week.

As usual, the Obama folks sought to downplay the significance of the vulnerability of the White House. As reported:


“Providing security at the White House is a complicated business,” Earnest said, reminding reporters that thousands of tourists visit the president’s residence every year.

When asked about the president’s response to the security breach, Earnest said Obama was “obviously concerned.”


So concerned, in fact, that the president apparently suffered a “wagging the dog” meltdown, prompted, in part, by the fact that the mid-term elections loom just five weeks hence.

As reported:

WASHINGTON — The United States and allies launched air strikes against Sunni militants in Syria early Tuesday, unleashing a torrent of cruise missiles and precision-guided bombs from the air and sea on the militants’ de facto capital of Raqqa and along the porous Iraq border.

American fighter jets and armed Predator and Reaper drones, flying alongside warplanes from several Arab allies, struck a broad array of targets in territory controlled by the militants, known as the Islamic State. American defense officials said the targets included weapons supplies, depots, barracks and buildings the militants use for command and control. Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired from United States Navy ships in the region.”
Defenders point out that Obama had few viable options: Blaming Bush no longer works and evidence that ISIS is a product of global warming is still being brewed.

So, its off to war—another one in the Middle East, where Obama’s familiarity with Islam and his pacifism were supposed to make war an “old school” tactic employed by out-of-touch despots!

Turns out that enlightened progressives in desperate political situations find that war is NOT always that  immoral or “dumb.”

Obama Importing Disease & Covering It Up?



By John W. Lillpop


Barack Obama’s passion for bringing illegal aliens into America in order to grow the base of the Democrat Party has been well chronicled and is legend in the annals of Impeachable Offenses committed by a president.

It’s as though Obama, possibly an illegal alien himself, will go to any lengths to grant benefits and citizenship to anyone whom has invaded America, is poor, uneducated, from a socialist nation, and whom speaks little or no English and is aggressively disinclined to acquire English skills.

However, Obama’s unlawful solicitation of illegals may have recently gone beyond the pale concerning a mysterious respiratory ailment that is marching across the nation.

As reported:


Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, reported that the government has been “real tight-lipped” about the mysterious respiratory illness that has struck children in the United States, expressed concern that the illegal immigrant minors from Central America could be the source, and argued that the government should devote more resources to border security to combat the spread of disease on Wednesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.” 

When asked whether illegal immigrant children who have been sent to various locations around the country could be the cause of the virus, she responded “Yes, they could be. We don’t know for sure the government is being real tight-lipped about this, and it only takes one infected child to infect the whole classroom.”

Orient added “we don’t know where it’s coming from...are there immigrants from Central America, where this disease has allegedly been prevalent before? Should we be [looking at] the virus to see whether it’s like what’s been found in some of these countries that are just sending waves of children across our border and they haven’t been quarantined long enough to make sure they’re not sick?”

She also spoke about the risks posed by drug resistant tuberculosis, saying “virtually all of the cases of drug resistant TB that have been discovered in the United States are in foreign born individuals, and the vast majority of any type of TB is in a person who was born in a foreign country. It is a public health nightmare to just have one of these cases in your community because the person needs to be quarantined...and you could catch TB on a bus, there is no question about that.”

In addition, Dr. Orient about the contagiousness of and potential for weaponizing the Ebola virus, reporting “the CDC, on its web site, still says you can't get it through the air, however, they're putting out more directives of a Canadian public health services saying ‘well, maybe you can get it through the air.’ This type of air transmission has occurred in animals who had no contact except through the air. And Even so, it’s very, very contagious, it only takes between 5 and 10 virus particles to infect a person. You don't have to have cuts...there are receptors for the viruses in [people’s] normal skin." And “it's extremely transmissible that's why people who like the idea of killing off 90% of population say it would be an ideal agent for accomplishing that. There have been attempts to weaponize it...but you don't really need an ICBM warhead to transmit this, you just some infected people coming across your border."  She further stressed that the government should devote more resources to securing the border to prevent the spread of disease.”

Sorry to say it, but this sounds what one would suspect from an incompetent, hateful Marxist. First, you destroy the best health care system in the world, then you make sure that the borders are open to allow unencumbered access by third-world people carrying the most dastardly diseases on the planet.

Then you cover the whole mess up, and label it a “phony scandal.”

Sound familiar? Too bizarre to believe?

Think for a moment about Obama’s performance over the past six years and remember that NOTHING is too evil for this despicable tyrant!

NFL Must Act to Counter Pandemic of Brain Damage in Front Offices!




By John W. Lillpop


A recent report indicates that perhaps 60% of former NFL players will at some point suffer brain damage. Obviously, this statistic is extremely disturbing and needs to be addressed by league offices as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, the brain damage that afflicts players in on-field confrontations has inexplicably spread to the administrative front offices of the various teams AND even to the office of the NFL Commissioner himself.

Specifically, in the case of  Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice, who knocked his fiancée out cold in an elevator and then proceeded to drag his lady around by the hair, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell apparently suffered a devastating brain injury which caused him to deal with the Rice offense by suspending the star for two games!

Two games, Roger?

After a video showing Rice using his lady as a punching bag emerged, Commissioner Goodell “rethought” the matter and decided that an indefinite suspension was more appropriate.

However, brain damage quickly spread to the NFL Players Union which appealed Goodell’s tougher stance.

Then out of the blue, disaster spread to Minnesota and the personage of Adrian Peterson who was indicted in Texas on a felony charge of child abuse!

The front office of the Minnesota Vikings took note of the Rice kerfuffel and acted conservatively by forcing Peterson to sit out last week’s game.

So far so good!

Then in a stunning reminder of how wicked brain damage can be, on Monday, the Vikings front office reinstated Peterson for no apparent reason.

Apparently the well being of a four-year old boy is not important enough to fret about a felony beating inflicted by a super star!

The big question: For the sake of women and children, should crash helmets be required gear for decision makers in front offices of the NFL?

Feeling “Queasy” About GOP Prospects for Elections!


By John W. Lillpop


For months on end, Republicans have basked in the glow of election projections which generally forecast a robust take over of the US Senate by the GOP.

At last, we cheered, Harry Reid will be replaced as Majority Leader of the Senate. Even more importantly, the GOP Senate would be empowered to thwart Barack Obama’s tyrannical designs on America, at least partially.

Supreme Court nominations would have to go through a GOP Senate, and the Senate could bond with the House in pushing for fiduciary responsibility and restraints on spending.

Despite all the seemingly good news for the GOP, lurking in the background was the haunting thought that the 2012 election had seemed, for a while, as a shoo-in for Republicans.

After all, unemployment and economic news was nearly all bad and the nation was in constant turmoil surrounding the excesses of the most liberal president in US history.

Still, somehow, when the votes were all counted, Barack Obama had won re-election, despite one of the rockiest first terms of any president.

Since 2012, things have gotten dramatically worse for America under the ultra-left, wrong-headed policies of Barack Obama.

From ObamaCare, to return to war in Iraq, to the creation of ISIS, to the border crises, Barack Obama has failed to mitigate America’s major problems and, in fact, has made things measurably worse.

Quite deservedly, Barack Obama is now seen as untrustworthy, incompetent, and, to many, insufficiently dedicated to the American brand.

He has failed on every count and is ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution at will, it seems.

Obama’s plunging poll numbers seemed to suggest that the America public has finally wised up to the One and would, as a result, elect a GOP Congress to counter the Marxist impulses of Barack Obama.

That may still happen.

Nonetheless, a new poll released today gives the Democrats a 51% chance of keeping the Senate.

Ouch!

As reported at the reference:


Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post's statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections.

Election Lab puts Democrats' chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent --  a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University's John Sides -- warned that the model could and would change as more actual polling -- as opposed to historical projections -- played a larger and larger role in the calculations. And, in Republicans' defense, no one I talked to ever thought they had an 80 percent chance of winning the majority.)”

This is just one poll and it may be wrong.

Still, when it comes to the 2014 election, “Queasy” describes perfectly how this conservative feels!
