In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Waiting for Obama to outline his strategy for dealing with the threat posed by ISIS sanctimoniously scheduled on the eve of the anniversary of 9/11. He’ll probably give them a two-week suspension then admit he made a mistake, revise the policy and subject our valiant military forces to yet another battle without honor or humanity. –June Smith /

  2. I just read a headline on MSN that “GOP Rebuffs Obama Call To Train Syrian Opposition”. Good news, but I don’t know if he can do it unilaterally or not.

  3. Someone needs to tell him what the word “Caliphate” means.
    Wait, someone just needs to tell him to take a seat in the STFU section. The same tired lies.

  4. Ok, so we’re sending in 475 more soldiers to show American “strength and resolve” … to train the Iraqis because we left a vacuum there to begin with. And we’ll get a collation of countries to fight with us how?

    1. He is going to ramp up intelligence.
      He should have stated I will start reading the intelligence reports.
      Than we got a speech of our great America!
      We already know that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants President Obama in his speech on ISIS Wednesday night to reject the jihadists’ “misappro-priation of Islamic terms and concepts,” and to recognize that the terrorist group was created by “the lack of freedom and justice in the region.”

        9:02 “America is safer”

        9:03 “ISIL is NOT Islamic”.

        “ISIL is not a state”.

        “U.S. is meeting threats with strength and resolve”.

        9:06 “America will lead broad coalition to roll back ISIL”.

        9:11 We have been successful in Yemen and Somalia with this strategy.

          1. Some classic comments/observations at Twitchy tonight.
            I didn’t listen to him tonight, I was saved by the Pew – Pew Research. First time I’ve been called by them for a survey.

  5. Just how stupid are Iraqis that they need to be trained to fight terrorists – put your finger on the trigger and squeeze- seems fairly basic.

    CNN panel isn’t impressed with this new Obama Terrorist plan.

    ‘ol Newt wants the Pres to drop the “no boots on the ground” …baloney. hmm.

    IMO, his attempt to mollify the people with trite platitudes after he has spent the last six years degrading, demeaning, and accusing them of all manner of treasonous activity is too little, too late, and unbelieveable.

    1. He keeps saying they have to get their Govt. together.
      Last night on Fox they had the map up again of Iraq and Syria showing where (the maniacs) are in each Country.
      Now they are though out a great part of each Country, and those citizens are going to have a hard time finding a safe place to spit much less get together for official govt. projects.

  6. the only time I saw a flash of real emotion was when he was defending Islam from what he insists on calling “ISIL,” even though most of the rest of us say “ISIS.”

    the rest of it was boilerplate 4th of July I heart my country stuff that would be believable from Mitt Romney–or even from Joe Biden–but NOT from Obama. we know better; we know he just doesn’t feel that way about America.

    his contention that Islam has nothing to do with any of this makes me think he still doesn’t understand what we’re up against. I don’t see how we can win if we can’t even name the enemy.

    1. He understands and was listening to CAIR, who put out the message not to.

      The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants President Obama in his speech on ISIS Wednesday night to reject the jihadists’ “misappropriation of Islamic terms and concepts,” and to recognize that the terrorist group was created by “the lack of freedom and justice in the region.”

    2. I’ve read that the reason he says ISIL instead of ISIS is that he doesn’t want to bring up Syria which is what the second S stands for. The L is not as specific: it stands for Levant.

      1. Why does Barry still insist on using the term “ISIL”, when no-one else does?

        “ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.
        Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective its all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.

        The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!

        It’s Israel.”


  7. I didn’t hear it in total. Bits and pieces.

    ISIS is regional and not Islamic.

    Targeted attacks, with non US fighters determining the success. Like Yemen and Somalia — not winners in my mind’s eye.

    But I’ll wait until I read a transcript because I am sure it is not this weak. /sarc

  8. Oh my that was so embarrassing -green screen, gaudy flags, and a bunch or bs

    You could tell he wanted to get the hell out of there asap

    He didn’t display ANY leadership at all
    except for defending islam as a religion of peace

    I have never seen a mosque bake sale to aid the less fortunate

  9. Didn’t watch. Looks like scotch still is an effective antidote. From the comments looks like this could be called “The Falaise Speech.”
