2014 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #18

Well did not have to wait very long to start another edition of B3……..I want to thank my brethren on the Right for having a motor mouth…..since they cannot help themselves…..I have an almost endless supply of of totally absurd BS…..thank you…….

1–All news agencies are trying to find the perfect analysis for the handling of ISIS……FOX News and more specifically Hannity has found the ‘expert’ made for FOX News……

………..as a full-fledged recipient of wingnut welfare, “Duck Dynasty” reality TV star and phony woodsman Phil Robertson appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Tuesday night in order to offer his solution to the chaos wrought in the Middle East by the Islamic extremist group ISIS.

“In this case, you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible — I’m not giving up on them, but I’m just saying either convert them or kill them,” Robertson explained to Hannity. “One or the other.”

So this dipstick has the answer…….convert them to Christ or kill them……sorry makes him NO better than ISIS on this issue……or is he saying Christianity is no better that the beliefs of ISIS?  He is a moron and the Right loves themselves some morons….a perfect fit.

2–One of my fave big mouth assholes, Michael Savage has come up with the best piece of manure yet………..

“This entire government is geared up to fight a war against white people,” Savage said. “What if a group of white people had rioted or does riot in America after Obama grants amnesty? What if they loot and they burn? You know and I know the attorney general is not going to come out and say, ‘I feel your pain.’”

Savage added: “Could this be the most racist administration in American history? Are we allowed to ask the question? Do you know of a modern American presidency that was as racist as the Obama administration?

A war on white people?  God this dude is a moron……

3–My regular readers know what I think of religious morons……in case you may have missed it…..worthless as tits on a banana peel…….and guess what?  There is a new low for the religious Right………

Rev. Austin Miles has published yet anotherbrilliantcolumn for Renew America, this time alleging that President Obama has “no past girl friends [sic]” (even though “there are photos on the internet showing him with many BOY friends”), and therefore must be promptly removed from office.

“When did he meet Michele [sic] and how? Are there photos? Every president provides the public with all their photos, etc. for their library. What has he released? Nada – other than what was in this so-called biography!,

What can I say to make these twats sound more moronic?  nothing….the idiots do just fine without my help.

4–Keeping with the GOP or conservative talking points….FOX News contributor Eric Erikson had lots to say about people working for minimum wage………

If you’re a 30 -something year- old person and you’re making minimum wage, you’ve probably failed at life. It’s not that life dealt you a bad hand. Life does not deal you cards. It’s that you failed at life.

I love the arrogance and disdain for human life that these pigs illustrate every time they open their moronic mouths…….and this douche is one of the biggest pricks the Right has…..

5–The Right and their paranoia over immigrants meets NO boundaries……the newest crap comoing from a familiar figure….a dude named Gheen…….

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) told WorldNetDaily yesterday that undocumented immigrants are a greater threat to America than ISIS, but that President Obama will still encourage ISIS to attack America so that his party wins the upcoming elections and he can impose a dictatorship.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration or ALIPAC, also said he believes concerns about ISIS overseas pale in comparison to the threat of rampant illegal immigration. He did not hear the Buchanan interview but made similar statements Monday to WND.

“ISIS could cut off the heads of journalists once a month for the next five years and that’s not going to destroy America, but Obama’s pumping of illegal immigrants into the country will,” Gheen said.

He said the Obama administration was “going into full stealth mode” to continue its open-borders policy as quietly as possible, and may even give the impression to some on the left that it is abandoning its commitment to “comprehensive immigration reform,” which is a euphemism for amnesty. The progressives will shout and scream that Obama is backing away from his pledge to grant amnesty by delaying the inevitable, but this is all political theater, in Gheen’s eyes.

What better tag line than to tie immigrants with ISIS……..I want to say something disgusting but just reading his words is disgusting enough for me…..

6–FOX News continuously hits new lows……and this piece on rape shows how low they are willing to go……

Following the news that a Missouri county prosecutor had asked a special prosecutor to review the charge that a 14-year-old girl was raped by an older high school student in 2012, Fox News host Shepard Smith invited criminal defense attorney Joseph DiBenedetto to explain the case on his show.

“I’m not saying she deserved to be raped,” said DiBenedetto, “but knowing the facts as we do here including what the prosecutor has set forth, this case is going nowhere and it’s going nowhere quick.”

“But what did she expect to happen at 1 a.m. in the morning after sneaking out?” continued DiBenedetto. “What it comes down to is this: if you’re a woman who likes to party and have a good time, you have to choose between that and the very real possibility of being raped.”

DiBenedetto was referring to the case of Daisy Coleman, a high school student who claims that authorities in the town of Maryville, Mo. helped protect her alleged assailants from criminal charges.

Is this the new legal paradigm for the US?  Blame the victim for the crime…..if so I do not want any part of it.

7–A possible GOP candidate for president has trotted out the old reliable diatribe……..

In an interview with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, Ben Carson said that if people want to know the truth about President Obama, they should simply “read ‘Mein Kampf’ and read the works of Vladimir Lenin.” “Mein Kampf,” of course, was written by Adolf Hitler and is filled with anti-Communist diatribes.

Is this the mentality that the GOP is looking for in a candidate?  If so, then the Dems have NOTHING top fear.

8–This douche bag cannot shut up and I love it!

potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said that President Obama doesn’t “have the same worldview” as the typical American. Carson, who has previously implied that Obama is a Nazi and a communist, said that the president is bent on introducing “government control of everything” by “getting rid of God” in order to bring about communism.

You look through history, you look at Cuba, you look at Russia, you look at a lot of places that have a socialist/communist base, but previously they didn’t have that and they were a free society. What happened that’s common in every one of those societies? Two basic things. You get rid of God — and you see the attack on God in our country that is going on right now — that’s number one because you have to replace God with your dogma, you have to become the primary authority of everything. And the second thing you have to do is you have to gain control of your people, and the best way to do that is you take over health care. Everybody needs health care, you get control of that. Get rid of God, get control of health care and you’re well on your way to fundamentally changing society

I just love morons that talk about history that know nothing about it……Cuba was free/  Bet you could not find too many that would agree under Batista’s rule….and Russia with a czar…now there is freedom to be proud of…..I love ‘em…..GOP potential?  HA HA HA!

9–one last moron for this edition and it is a good one…..he is a preacher at that…….

Mark Driscoll routinely curses and makes biblical references to oral sex during his sermons at his Mars Hill megachurch—but the Seattle pastor’s controversial words may have finally done him in. A female blogger at Patheos dug up comments Driscoll made under a pseudonym on a church message board in 2001 that are, well, interesting. To wit: “The first thing to know about your penis is … it is not your penis. God created you, and it is his penis.” The bizarre message then notes that penises are borrowed and need a home, and that a man’s wife “makes a very nice home.” Other nuggets: a warning against breaking into another man’s home (ie, sleeping with another man’s wife) and a call for a wife to “rejoice at seeing [her husband's] penis rise to greet her.” (Read more of his comments here.)

GOD I love these religious types they are a source of amusement, at least for me……

So ends another edition of B3….never fear there are still mounds of bullsh*t from the Right and I will be glad to pass it on to you….stay tuned and keep the faith (no pun intended)……

The McKeon Amendment – A Lend-Lease Act for Terrorists by Justin Raimondo — Antiwar.com

House has voted to fund the training of ‘moderate’ rebels…..as soon as we decide just who those rebels are with ‘vetting’…..ah humor……this whole arming ‘moderates’ is not a good plan, in my opinion……

Your thoughts?

Somalia: Revenge Best Served Cold

Inkwell Institute

East Africa Desk

 

I am sure that most action loving movie goers have see “Black Hawk Down”…..the story of a disastrous operation in Somalia in 1993 in the battle of Mogadishu…….many American troops were killed and as a result we soon decided that Somalia was a hopeless cause battling the war lord militants……

But even though the main body of US troops departed there has been a small but active team of American special forces operating in the country.  The objective is the destruction of Al Shabaab, Islamist extremists….now after about 20 years the US has successfully taken out the key figure in Al Shabaab……….the world learned that a US missile strike in southern Somalia on Monday had targeted Ahmed Godane, the leader of Al Shabaab, a terrorist with a $7 million bounty on his head.

 

The US is immediately began the back slapping…..why?  Analysts predict that if Godane has been killed, the group that he has led since 2008 will splinter. Over the last three years Godane has tightened his grip on the organization, ousting, alienating, or killing internal critics and rivals. Godane’s unassailable position gave Al Shabaab a certain ruthless direction but leaves it no clear successor.

So we have given Al Shabaab a lethal attack?  CIA analysts want you to believe that this will no longer be a threat in East Africa……as usual those guys have NO idea what is going on in the world…….

(Newser) – Somalian Islamic extremist rebels al-Shabab named Abu Ubeid Ahmed Omar to be their new leader following the killing of the previous leader by a US airstrike, said a commander of the group. The Somali militants unanimously selected Omar today at a meeting in an undisclosed location in Somalia, said rebel commander Abu Mohammed. Omar is believed to be an assumed name, and the new leader’s real name is not known. The Somali group had to appoint a new leader following the death of Ahmed Abdi Godane, the group’s spiritual leader who was killed by an airstrike on Monday.

My first reaction to the news was….are you guys high?  You just painted a target on the dude’s ass.

My second reaction is………..Once again the CIA has proven, at least to me, that they have NO clue what is happening in East Africa……….what about all their other “actionable” intel?

Time for new thinking in DC and international relations……..our people now are clueless.  Time after time these people have blown the analysis of a situation…….why do we continue to trust a group that has continuously been proven to be wrong and ill informed?

Who Does ISIS Really Threaten?

Thank you, Mr. President.  By taking the country to war yet again you have made my job as a blogger so much easier…..since I like international relations and especially the Middle East….I am thrilled!

We have heard the war hawks thumping their chest like crazed primates about the threat to the homeland…..but really who is threatened by the appearance of ISIS?

Sorry, but US is a low priority for them…..regardless of what mental midgets like McCain and Graham would have you believe……

If not us then who?

Maybe those with the highest probability of attack should be part of this newest intervention by the US……..whatcha think?

Iraq: ISIS Coalition Briefing #3

The third edition of my briefing series on the war on the Islamic State (IS)……information that the media sees fit not to pass on to the American public……I do this so people interested do not have to spend all day on the internet trying to get all the info……it’s what I do………you are welcome………..

Item 1–McCain has been all over the media with his push to do more for the ‘moderates’ fighting ISIS……but he may need to check IST briefings from time to time apparently he has not gotten the word……

Col. Riad Assad, the leader of the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel, has announced that his group will not join the anti-ISIS coalition the US is assembling, nor will they participate in attacks on ISIS.

Col. Assad insisted that the rebel group’s chief goal is to conquer Syria and oust President Bashar Assad (no relation). He complained the anti-ISIS coalition did not make regime change in Syria its goal.

Even though the FSA isn’t on board with fighting ISIS, Col. Assad did say his group would be happy to keep taking US money and weapons.

The US arms to the FSA and other “vetted, moderate” rebels have been controversial because so many of those weapons have wound up in the hands of ISIS anyhow. The FSA has also been facing growing defections of their fighters into ISIS.

Maybe McCain needs to step aside for he has tunnel vision and that could be lethal in this region.

Item 2–One of the big plans, especially from war hawks, is to train and arm ‘moderates’ to help fight our newest enemy ISIS.  But that is not the way to go….

an international coalition to take its campaign against Islamic State from Iraq into Syria, fighters like Ammar al-Wawi could make the difference.

He fears that restrictions on the kind of weapons he’ll receive and the training he’ll get under a $500 million White House proposal to arm moderate Syrian rebels will make his job impossible.

“We don’t really need more training. And we have enough soldiers. What we need are quality weapons,” said Wawi, a commander in the Free Syrian Army, a loose collection of moderate rebels fighting both the Islamic State and Syrian government forces.

“We need anti-aircraft weapons. We need anti-tank weapons. If we don’t get those, we can’t win, no matter what the United States does.”

They don’t need training?  Yeah, they are doing a helluva job against Assad as they lose area after area to the regime.  And AA guns?  Do we really need to give them those so they can be passed on to ISIS as so many other weapons have?  Wrong to do this!

Item 3–Everybody keeps asking “what about Assad”? after all he is fighting ISIS also as well as a wealth of other groups…….

The United States and other Western governments have dismissed the idea of cooperating with Syria in the fight against Islamic State, which has seized large areas of Iraq and Syria. Western governments see Assad as part of the problem and say he must leave power.

The meeting between Faleh al-Fayad, the Iraqi national security adviser, and Assad indicated that the Iraqi government aims to maintain those ties. It also points to the scope for possible indirect contact between Syria and the West over the fight against Islamic State via third parties such as Iraq.

Fayad “put Assad in the picture of the latest developments in Iraq and the efforts that the Iraqi government and people are making to combat the terrorists”, Syrian state news agency SANA said.

The meeting stressed “the importance of strengthening cooperation and coordination between the two brotherly countries in the field of combating terrorism that is hitting Syria and Iraq and which threatens the region and the world,” SANA said.

My educated guess is that we used a proxy to let Assad know what is happening…..even though we are not officially including him in any decisions…….Iraq can.

Item 4–Remember back in the dark days of the last Iraq War?  Remember al-Sadr?  A Shi’a cleric who commanded a large militia that fought against the US in those dark days….well he has NOT gone away…….

Influential Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has ordered members of his Mahdi Army militia to withdraw from areas where US forces are conducting their ir war against ISIS, and urged popular demonstrations against the return of US ground troops to the country.

The Mahdi Army largely disbanded after the US pullout, but Sadr has kept ties with its leadership, threatening regularly to bring them out of retirement if the US tries to return to the country in a military role. With the ISIS war looking to do exactly that, they could quickly be another foe for the US in its ever-expanding conflict.

Another wrinkle in our latest war in Iraq….this could be a major problem down the road…..

Item 5–the US has scouts on the group in Iraq…..they are searching for Sunni tribes to help in the fight against ISIS…….the problem is the lack of trust by the tribes……..

Unwilling to send U.S. troops back to Iraq, Washington is trying to persuade armed Sunni factions and tribal figures to fight Islamic State militants in an echo of the “Awakening” movement that drove al Qaeda from the country six years ago.

Unwilling to send U.S. troops back to Iraq, Washington is trying to persuade armed Sunni factions and tribal figures to fight Islamic State militants in an echo of the “Awakening” movement that drove al Qaeda from the country six years ago.

The plan is far from easy, since many Sunnis regard the Awakening as a failure and a betrayal and see the Sunni Islamic State’s sweep into predominantly Sunni northern and western Iraq as the lesser of two evils, despite its mass killings.

U.S. and Iraqi officials say it is not a rehash of the Awakening but will incorporate Sunnis into a “National Guard”, a security force intended to decentralize power from Baghdad, addressing Sunni demands to stop oppression from the majority Shi’ite security forces.

Sorry dudes but trust is everything to these tribes…….our word was given then ignored….it will be a hard row to hoe…..and then the ‘national guard’ thing…..we will building yet another militia for future conflict….now there is a good plan.

Item 6–al-Qaeda is pushing for more unity among the warring factions in the Middle East……

Two al Qaeda branches urged warring militant factions in Iraq and Syria to stop fighting each other and unite against a U.S.-led alliance preparing to attack the ultra hardline Islamic State armed group, according to a joint statement posted online.

“Stop the infighting between you and stand as one rank against America’s campaign and that of its satanic alliance that lies in wait for all of us, to break us stick by stick,” al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) said in a rare joint statement.

This could be seen as an attempt for unity…….or it could be seen as an attempt to isolate ISIS from other groups so they can carry on without interference from the US and whoever else wants in on this fight.  This needs to be watched closely.

Item 7–this final piece would have been predicted if anyone had taken the time to do some research…….

Support for the Islamic State organization has grown since the US launched airstrikes in Iraq and the group is attracting many new jihadist fighters, top US officials said Wednesday.

The IS group’s “widespread use of social media and growing online support intensified following the commencement of US airstrikes in Iraq,” FBI head James Comey told the House Homeland Security Committee.

This ends briefing #3…..the next briefing will be as events warrant….time for Americans to pout aside their fascination with celebs and to pay attention…..the world is about to become a lot more dangerous and we need to stay alert.

Thanx for the attention to this briefing.

Ignorance Fuels the Calls for War – Reason.com

Americans are ready to go to war……again.  As usual Americans as usual are not thinking they want revenge…..and revenge is not a good way to go into a war.  Americans show a massive bag full of ignorance on so many levels.

When the war goes to crap then they start blaming everyone but themselves…..right now the polls show that Americans want some sort of action against the common enemy, in this case ISIS…..without thought of the consequences of their actions……
