Obama drops leaflets gives ISIS 45 minute warning before oil tanker airstrike — WTF? Is this guy serious?
From Infowars by Paul Joseph Watson:
The Obama White House is giving ISIS a 45 minute warning before bombing their oil tankers by dropping leaflets advising potential jihadists to flee before air strikes in Syria.
“Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: air strikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life,” the leaflet reads.
The leaflet drops are justified under the premise that the oil tanker drivers might be civilians and not ISIS recruits, although it’s an explanation that doesn’t wash with critics.
“It’s not like these drivers are innocent, uninvolved ‘civilians’ like children or sick people,” writes J.E. Dyer. “They’re waging ISIS’s war, just like the other non-uniformed participants who make up 100% of ISIS’s ranks. This is how far the Obama administration is going to avoid “collateral damage” — and who knows, it may be worse.”
FrontPageMag’s Daniel Greenfield makes a similar point, commenting, “So after all this time, they came up with a great plan; drop flyers on ISIS trucks so that the drivers, who may or may not be ISIS members, can run away in time. Meanwhile ISIS gets 45 minutes of warning.”
Compare the Obama White House’s approach to fighting ISIS to that of Russia.
While it took the U.S. fifteen months to even begin targeting ISIS’ oil refineries and tankers, air strikes by Moscow destroyed more than 1,000 tankers in a period of just five days.
In comparison, Col. Steve Warren said that the U.S. had taken out only 116 tanker trucks, the “first strike” to target ISIS’ lucrative black market oil business, which funds over 50 per cent of the terror group’s activities.
U.S. air strikes targeting ISIS oil assets are so rare that PBS was caught using footage of Russian fighter jets bombing an oil storage facility in Syria and passing it off as evidence of the U.S. targeting the Islamic State’s oil infrastructure. . . .

Is Hillary living in an alternative reality? Or is she beginning to believe her own lies?
Hillary Clinton: Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism. Bullshit. So why is it that 63 million Muslims from around the world support ISIS? This may play well to the base, but . . . Spread it thin, Hill, it’s a big farm. and you might just be beginning to lose some credibility. Or are we past that point?
From WND by Douglas Ernst:
Hillary: Muslims ‘have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism’
Hillary Clinton sees zero connection between Islamic terrorist networks seeking to create a “would-be caliphate,” the “radical jihadism” they preach, and Islam.
The Democrat front-runner for her party’s 2016 presidential nomination said Friday, “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”
The former secretary of state made the comment while speaking before the Council on Foreign Relations in New York on Thursday. . . .

Pew poll: Between 63 million and 287 million ISIS supporters in just 11 countries
A new poll by the Pew Research Center reveals significant levels of support for ISIS within the Muslim world. In 11 representative nation-states, up to 14 percent of the population has a favorable opinion of ISIS, and upwards of 62 percent “don’t know” whether or not they have a favorable opinion of the Islamist group.
In Pakistan, a nuclear weapons state, only 28 percent of the public view ISIS unfavorably. By this overwhelming degree of either tacit support or tolerance for ISIS in the country, ISIS should be considered as a potential proxy nuclear weapons power via its linkages and support within Pakistan.
When broken down by ethnicity and religion, the results are equally troubling. In Israel, 4 percent of its Arab population – which equates to more than 66,000 individuals – have a favorable view of ISIS. For Gaza and the West Bank, 5 and 8 percent, respectively, also hold a favorable view of ISIS. In Nigeria, the ISIS favorability rating among the Muslim population soars to 20 percent. Another 12 percent of Muslims in Malaysia take a similar positive view of ISIS.
Substantial support for ISIS also exists . . .

Hillary Clinton will be indicted — Dr. Jerome Corsi of WND.com on Hillary Clinton @ 23:35–29:00: excerpts from the above . . .
Obama’a essentially gonna throw Hillary under the bus: blame Hillary for the Middle East. I believe Hillary Clinton will be under criminal indictment before the election, likely from both the Department of Justice and also the states.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are going to be prosecuted in the states for the foundation; they can lose control over the foundation.
The Democrats, I think, have resolved that they’re gonna lose this election. Hillary’s been picked to take the fall. Obama’s gonna clear out the old Hillary Clinton wing of the Democratic party — Obama’s gonna take the Clintons down.
The Democrats are going to get more radical, and they’re going to try to align with the forces in the universities to do an Ayres style revolution.
The Clinton Foundation will be put into receivership . . . The Clintons will lose control of the foundation . . . and the Democratic party will move far to the left . . .
The Clintons are criminals and they’re going to go down. They’re going to be thrown down and thrown down hard . . .
The left overplayed it’s hand . . .
US Senate passes bill to legalize asteroid mining — After passing a bill to grant mining rights in outer-space, something they have no legal right to do, the US Senate, in a glorious moment of political correctness, decides to add an amendment to outlaw the enslavement of space aliens to work the mines. Well, thank God for that.
But the hell with asteroids. If I were to take up outer-space mining as an avocation, I’d fly out to the planet known as 55 Cancri e, a planet twice the size of earth that is one big diamond floating in space.
From The Daily Sheeple by Melissa Dykes:
On Tuesday, the Senate passed the Space Act of 2015 which is being hailed as a way to encourage the private space industry. Part of the bill legalized space mining, allowing companies the property rights to any resources that they might extract from asteroids out there. The Daily Caller noted that a bunch of think tanks concluded the lack of this bill was a major hurdle to space-based industry development. “This bill will keep America at the forefront of aerospace technology, create jobs, reduce red tape, promote safety, and inspire the next generation of explorers,” Chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, Congressman Lamar Smith, said in a press release. Here’s the thing though… the U.S. can’t legally “own property” in outer space, so therefore, the U.S. can’t really grant property rights to anyone for anything out there.

[S]pace miners are not allowed to keep or sell aliens from outer space as slaves. The bill expressly prohibits it. . . .

Truth be damned — in a world turned upside down, the New York Times claims that Paris attacks help Clinton harm Trump as Hillary argues that we’re not doing enough to bring more Syrian refugees to America.
Politicians and their operatives are constantly spinning, trying to create their own reality, trying to paint a picture of the way they’d like you to see things and not necessarily the way that they are.
In a 2004 New York Times Magazine article, Journalist Ron Suskind, quoting Karl Rove, wrote —
[G]uys like me [Suskind] were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he [Rove] continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Paris Attacks Help Clinton hurt Trump —
From the New York Times via MSN News:
Why the Paris Attacks Probably Won’t Change the Election’s Outcome
. . . The horrific attacks that took place Friday in Paris have, at least for the moment, changed that dynamic. CBS quickly moved to increase the emphasis on foreign policy and national security during Saturday night’s Democratic debate. Candidates are scrambling to adjust to the news, which media analysis has suggested might “alter” the character of the race, for instance by helping more experienced candidates like Hillary Rodham Clinton and hurting outsiders like Donald Trump.
* * *
Even the killing of Osama bin Laden had little discernible effect on President Obama’s approval ratings. One initial piece of evidence in favor of this hypothesis: Prices in betting markets tracked by David Rothschild of Microsoft Research over the weekend showed virtually no change in the expected winners of the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations or the general election.
* * *
We should also be careful about attributing future events to the attacks. It will be tempting to construct post-Paris narratives in which voters are more likely to select a candidate who can capably serve as commander in chief. But research and history suggest that the primary process is already likely to winnow out outsider and factional candidates like Bernie Sanders, Ben Carson and Mr. Trump who can’t attract widespread support within their party — precisely the sort whose prospects the attacks might seem most likely to damage. In other words, if the Paris attacks hadn’t happened, some other rationale would have probably been used to force them to the sideline.
* * *
If the economic expansion continues, don’t be surprised if you hear Republicans frequently invoking the Paris attacks as a reminder of Mrs. Clinton’s failure to help head off the ISIS threat when she was secretary of state. . . .

So, there you have it: The Paris attacks will help Clinton but hurt Trump. I’m not quite sure how that will work when Trump has been against bringing in more immigrants, particularly in light of the fact that there not even enough jobs for Americans, particularly illegal immigrants, particularly single males of military conscription age from a Jihadi war zone who are impossible to accurately vet.
Hillary, on the other hand, battled hard to define herself as the candidate who would bring in the most Syrian “refugees” (I use that word lightly because many are just responding to the advertised free housing, free healthcare, and free income that Obama has so generously offered to provide. Hell, who wouldn’t) in the Nov. 14th Democratic debate that was scheduled for a Saturday night, a night that would be likely to attract the least viewers.
Then we have David Rothschild’s research that showed virtually no change in the expected winners of the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations or the general election. Yet we have Rothschild predicting that Republican favorite Trump will somehow lose and the nominee will be who? Jeb? Kasich? Not bloody likely.
In response to the Paris attacks Ann Coulter Tweeted, “They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.”
As to the supposed economic expansion, who ya going to believe, the Obama Administration and their propaganda outlets or your lying eyes?
It is undeniable; the final collapse triggers are upon us, triggers alternative economists have been warning about since the initial implosion of 2008. In the years since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd and ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets and as the situation in markets becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase. This might seem counter-intuitive to many. You would think that the more obvious the economic collapse becomes, the more alternative analysts will be vindicated and the more awake and aware the average person will be. Not necessarily…
In fact, the mainstream spin machine is going into high speed the more negative data is exposed and absorbed into the markets. If you know your history, then you know that this is a common tactic by the establishment elite to string the public along with false hopes . . .

Who says there is nothing new under the sun? One Woman has been arrested so far for her part in a twerking attack that took place in a D.C. gas station. The man who has asked not to be identified — what’s wrong with you, Dude, you didn’t like that — said he feared it was either a robbery attempt or that the women were transsexuals. And just when you’d thought you’d seen everything.
Caught on hidden camera — university officials at Cornell, Yale, Vassar, Syracuse tear up Constitution, cut it into pieces with scissors, run it through a shredder; all to protect students who find it offensive from triggering. NC State bans students from keeping copies of the US Constitution in dorms to protect students who find it offensive from stumbling upon a copy; and, again, all to protect students from the trauma of triggering.
Obama forces girls to shower with boys. Yes, a tranny boy, but one that still has all his male equipment — what are they going to do if he pops a hard one, and how can he, oh, excuse me, “she,” be considered a she when it has male, not female, genitalia?
Schools that refuse to go along with this perverse idea of civil rights and justice will lose their federal funding. Is political correctness some sort of brain disease that crashed onto this planet with a meteor? Homeschooling is beginning to look like any sane person’s only option.
