On the heels of Barack Obama’s mind-numbing admission concerning the lack of a “strategy” for dealing with ISIL in Syria, even worse news is breaking:
ISIL is now operating within Mexico! Thus, the insecure border with Mexico now involves a serious terrorist threat that even Barack Obama will be forced to take seriously.
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”
Bottom Line: While Barack Obama and his crazy democrat pals waste time trying to assure that illegal alien invaders have taxpayer-paid attorneys, ISIL is making plans to turn America into a vast wasteland!

Barack Obama shocked, saddened, and disappointed a lot of Americans when he blithely announced that the US government does NOT YET have a strategy for dealing with ISIL, the most ferocious, brutal, well-funded, and savvy terrorist group to threaten 21st century civilization, and America in particular.
What could possibly be going through the shallow, socialist mind of America’s alleged Commander-in-Chief? How can this character continue to occupy the Oval Office in light of such epic failures and incompetence?
Perhaps Obama’s incompetence can be traced to his dysfunctional mindset which holds that:
*The war on terror is over!
*We tortured terrorists at GITMO, so perhaps we are to blame!
*Al-Quaeda has been decimated
*World has never been safer!
*The perpetual war “mindset” is a relic of the failed Bush years—hope and change transition eliminates need to wage endless war!
*Islam is a religion of peace---US NOT at war with Islam!
Given the pathetic notions above, it is surprising that Obama has not offered to unilaterally surrender to ISIL and its new caliphate!

On August 22, US Defense Secretary Hagel issued a dire warning about the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group, saying:
"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen," Hagel said. "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."
Clearly, Chuck Hagel believes that ISIS is more brutal, more ruthless, and more of a threat to America and the world than the lunatics of Al-Quadea whom masterminded and carried out the 9/11 attack which cost 3,000 American civilians their lives.
Given the severity and urgency of Hagel’s warning, one would have expected the US Commander-in-Chief to return from his vacation with a detailed strategy and plan for defeating the ISIS killers.
Alas, Barack Obama is the Commander-In-Chief and Hagel’s warning came at a time when the One was seriously engaged in golf, dancing, and other recreational diversions, apparently more important than preservation of the nation and 330 million American lives.
First things first, after all. And when it comes to Obama, golf is first, second, third, and on and on.
Being president is, it seems, an annoying sideline, especially when Obama’s golf addiction and other vacation frivolities are involved.
Thus, it should have come as no great surprise that Obama addressed the ISIS fray with less than robust enthusiasm.
He was, as they say, distracted.
After lots of bluster about striking ISIS on Syria, President Obama threw cold water on the idea Thursday, disappointing those who wanted him to take the fight to ISIS in Syria.
After a week of talk of eliminating the "cancer" of ISIS, President Obama said Thursday that he was not planning to significantly expand the war against the Islamic extremist movement anytime soon.
His remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations – which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America's potential allies in Syria -- failed to produce a consensus battle plan. And so Obama, who has long been reluctant to enter into the Syrian conflict, told reporters Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for confronting ISIS on a regional level.”
No strategy yet, Mr. President? Does the name James Foley ring a bell, sir? You know, the journalist whom was ruthlessly beheaded by an ISIS monster as pay back for the US bombings in Iraq?
Does the name Chuck Hagel mean anything, sir? He is your Defense Secretary and he has warned that America must move urgently to eliminate ISIS.
Good heavens, Mr. President, America needs strong, powerful leadership to deal with ISIS!
The big question: Is ISIS another messy duty that is above your pay grade? Sir?

By now, even the most gooey-eyed liberal must admit that the “talk solution” advocated by Barack Obama and other progressive diplomacy freaks is hardly a universal solution to anything, least of all a bitter religious spat dating back to the Garden of Eden, Father Abraham, and his dysfunctional family, especially brats Issac and Ishmael.
Given the history of the Abraham clan and its inability to even get along peacefully, it should come as no great surprise that all these many years later, there is nothing but enmity between God’s “chosen people” and the non-Jews who see things differently.
The amazing thing is that western interlopers such as Great Britain and America continue to spread false hope for an accord between Israel and the Palestinians!
Rubbish! There is no hope and to say that there is is blasphemy on the highest!
Give it up, John Kerry!
Palestinians hate Jews and Jews hate Palestinians. Such is the DNA configuration mandated from on high, unalterable by some crazy-jawed moon bat from Massachusetts!
The entire notion of a two-state solution involving Israel and the Palestinians is nuttiness on steroids!
The only solution is to separate the warring parties as much as possible and do not count on anything even approaching civility.
Remember, these folks hate each other nearly as much as red necks in Alabama loathe Yankee air heads from New England!
What, then, can be done?
Looking at a map of the Middle East reveals a vast patch of land called Saudi Arabia, is sparsely populated, and available.
Why not give the Palestinians a chunk of Saudi Arabia to call their own, free from the Jews and their Zionist sympathizers?
Surely, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz would not object to sharing a few billion sand castles with fellow Muslims in order to foster peace and please Allah?

Barack Obama’s lasting legacy will surely be his legendary talent for story-telling. Or to be more precise, Obama is a master when it comes to using the Bully Pulpit of the Presidency to issue bold-faced lies and distortions, not coincidentally all of which exaggerate his achievements, while ignoring, or understating, the destructive impact of Obama policies on America’s military, economic, social, and political institutions.
Take, for instance, Obama’s outrageous attempt to sugar-coat world conditions so as to make it appear as though Utopia has been achieved, presumably attributable to his tenure in the White House.
As reported at the reference, Barack Obama actually said the following:
“The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.”
Rose-colored glasses and insidious self-delusions allow Obama to speak such nonsense, with impunity, mostly due to a brain-dead media which remains enamored and adoring of The One, despite six horrendous years of failure.
However, occasionally light will break through the fog of media-created fantasy and enlightenment will ensue, if ever so briefly.
Such is the case with recent remarks made by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel who warned that Obama-sponsored victory laps should be taken with a grain, or more, of salt.
As reported at Reference 2:
The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.
"They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it's in Iraq or anywhere else," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.
Hagel's assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria's civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.
Asked if the hard line Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was "as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen."
"They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of ... military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we've seen."
"Beyond anything we have seen,” Mr. Hagel?
Combined with events in the Ukraine-Russian conflict, the new cold war between Russia and America, the Syrian civil war, the ongoing Israel-Palestine wars, the barbaric moves of ISIS, invasions at the US-Mexico borders, and flare ups in cities like Ferguson, Missouri, one wonders exactly how Barack Obama develops his world views?
Can America survive two more years of such infantile thinking?
