Top general: 'Islamists embedded in White House?'

'The president has elected not to get serious' on ISIS

Published: 2 hours ago

In the wake of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, beheading 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney is slamming the Obama administration for failing to take obvious military steps to destroy the terrorists and identify radical Islam as the motivating factor for the atrocities committed throughout the region.

McInerney is a Vietnam veteran and rose to the No. 3 position in the Air Force during his career in uniform. He is now a Fox News military analyst.

On Sunday, ISIS released a new video depicting the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt on a beach in Libya.

U.S.-led airstrikes have been aimed at ISIS since August, after the terrorists beheaded American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. However, McInerney said the operations could be far more intense and would quickly cripple the enemy if done right.

“I think the air campaign is not nearly the intensity we needed,” McInerney said. “It’s not even an air campaign. It’s somewhere between seven and 15 sorties a day when we absolutely need upward of 100-200 sorties a day. I’m calling for 200. We need to be attacking the ISIS capital of Raqqa (Syria) 24/7. We need to close the highway between Raqqa and Mosul, Iraq.”

He said those steps would quickly tighten the noose around ISIS.

“Nothing can move on that highway,” he said. “If it’s moving, we’ll destroy it. We’ll kill their commerce. We’ll kill their ability to feed people in their ‘Islamic State.’ That’s going to require between 100-200 sorties a day, plus we’re going to need constant surveillance reconnaissance assets over the area.”

McInerney added, “Let’s get serious on this. The president has elected not to get serious. The Pentagon wants to do this, but the White House is holding back.”

Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney:

Another concern inside Iraq is the fate of 300 U.S. Marines and the Iraqi forces they are training at the Al Asad military base in Anbar Province of Iraq. Reports conflict over what danger ISIS forces pose near the facility. Pentagon officials publicly state they are not at all worried about the safety of U.S. and Iraqi forces. McInerney isn’t so sure and said this is another issue that could easily be resolved with decisive action.

“We need to put a Global Hawk or a Reaper (drone) overhead between Al-Asad and the town that they captured, al Baghdadi,” he said. “Anything that moves out of al-Baghdadi toward Al-Asad should be destroyed. In addition, we ought to continuously attack al-Baghdadi. In other words, a good offense gives you a great defense.”

Again, the general sees a dithering administration.

“By attacking those troops in al-Baghdadi, they’re going to be fearing for their lives, but I don’t see this being done,” he said. “This is 101 in basic war fighting, and we’re not getting that. I know the Pentagon wants to do that, but they’re not getting support out of the White House. This is being micromanaged out of the White House.”

A new CNN poll reveals 58 percent of Americans now disapprove of the president’s handling of ISIS.

In addition to McInerney’s frustration with the military tactics being employed against ISIS, he is livid over the Obama administration refusing to define the motivation behind the threat. Calling the rise and expansion of ISIS the result of “what happens when good people do nothing to fight evil,” McInerney said the Obama administration is keeping its head in the sand about how the ideology of this movement must be confronted.

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a radical Islamic organization,” McInerney said. “Al-Qaida, which attacked us on 9/11, is a radical Islamic organization. Hamas in the Gaza Strip is a radical Islamic organization. All these organizations that people hear about are radical Islamists. The Iranian government is a radical Islamic organization.”

The general said it is incumbent for President Obama to stop avoiding the elephant in the room and clearly state who and what America is fighting.

“Until the president identifies the threat that we are facing as radical Islam, it makes it very difficult to defeat the threat,” he said. “I just can’t say it any clearer. It’s important that this White House and this president identify the threat for what it is.”

Obama was vacationing in California over the Presidents’ Day weekend. The only White House responses to the ISIS beheadings or Saturday’s terrorist attacks in Denmark came from written statements. In a very short response to the shootings in Copenhagen, a three-sentence statement from a National Security Council spokesperson never referred to terrorism or radical Islam. On Sunday, a statement from White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest referred to the 21 slain Coptic Christians only as “Egyptian citizens.”

McInerney is mystified by the lengths to which the administration goes to avoid references to radical Islam.

“I don’t know. Maybe we have some Islamists embedded in the White House,” McInerney said. “Whatever it is, it is absolutely bizarre. When Charlie Hebdo was attacked in Europe, everybody was calling it radical Islam except our president, who was calling it violent extremists.”

“What is the ideology of violent extremists? I don’t know,” he said. “Are they Irish? Are they Swedes? Who are they? I do know what the ideology of radical Islamists is. It is the Quran, the Hadith and Shariah law. Those are the things that we are fighting against.”

What do YOU think? Are there Islamists embedded in the White House? Sound off in today’s WND poll!

Last week, President Obama requested a new congressional authorization for the use of military force, or AUMF, against ISIS. Some lawmakers are pleased that Obama is consulting Congress on the mission some six months after it began. Others say the scope is too narrow and should not be limited to just the next three years.

McInerney is not impressed by the request.

“He has given a political document,” he explained. “He’s trying to tie the hands of the president who follows him. He is not being aggressive on this because I think it’s a funding thing. His priorities are on domestic policy. It’s not on the global situation. He’s had four secretaries of defense. No president in our history has had four secretaries of defense. We have lost Libya, Syria and now Yemen. Plus, we have really lost Iraq, because that’s now become a proxy state of Iran when we pulled out.”

In just over six years of the Obama presidency, McInerney said the pendulum in the Middle East is swinging in the wrong direction.

“He has completely changed the geopolitical position in the Middle East,” he said. “Egypt is now getting aid from the Russians. Forty years ago, we made a brilliant move when we flipped Egypt from relying on the Soviet Union to the United States and the Western world. This administration has completely reversed that. It’s a disaster.”

Although my French language skills are a bit rusty, I searched the Le Nouvel Observateur site as well as the NYT and AP - didn't find anything, however I came across a few other websites with related articles.   I hope that more information will become available from the author of the "original comment".   There are other entries where there was 'a call' to impeach POTUS via the internet searches - nothing to become bright eyed and bushy tailed about.  

As Jay Leno once said, "... the one thing to keep B.O. from impeachment (or removal) is - Joe Biden".

Dude, Biden hasn't got the smarts to run a 7-11 let alone a whole country.  Also consider this one thought...he has stood by and watched all this happen without speaking up and saying anything about it.  He is an accomplis.

Obama: Pass a bill or I’ll rip up the Constitution

The president does not have the right to overturn laws he does not like. The former constitutional law professor knew that in 2010. When asked why he had not pushed through a bill to legalize undocumented immigrants, Obama told Univision: “I am president; I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the executive branch to make it happen.”  On Nov. 20, when Obama announced the expansion of his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to include undocumented adults, he said, “To those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.”

George Washington University law Professor Jonathan Turley is an Obama voter who is appalled. Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Turley charged that partisan “division is no license to 'go it alone’ as the president has suggested. You have only two choices in our system when facing political adversaries: You can either seek to convince them or to replace them. This is obviously frustrating for presidents (and their supporters) who want to see real changes and to transcend gridlock. However, there is nothing noble in circumventing the Constitution. The claim of any one person that they can 'get the job done’ unilaterally is the very Siren’s Call that our Framers warned us to resist.” 

Opinion

When Republicans challenged Obamacare in the courts, they had to overcome the hurdle of persuading the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a program enacted by Congress and signed by a president. The legal challenge by Texas and 25 other states to the administration’s executive actions on immigration is different. Congress never passed a Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (or DAPA) to grant legal status to some 5 million undocumented immigrants. President Obama himself never signed what his aides call an “executive action”; Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson takes that honor. Thus DAPA is a scary power grab that claims the president — and even his bureaucrats — have the power to override duly enacted federal law. Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, was right to issue a temporary injunction against it.

The president does not have the right to overturn laws he does not like. The former constitutional law professor knew that in 2010. When asked why he had not pushed through a bill to legalize undocumented immigrants, Obama told Univision: “I am president; I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the executive branch to make it happen.”

On Nov. 20, when Obama announced the expansion of his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to include undocumented adults, he said, “To those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.”

The claim of any one person that they can 'get the job done’ unilaterally is the very Siren’s Call that our Framers warned us to resist.”

The Constitution charges the president to “take care that the law be faithfully executed”; Obamaland contends it is simply engaging in executive discretion. But Judge Hanen countered, “Exercising prosecutorial discretion and/or refusing to enforce a statute does not also entail bestowing benefits” — like Social Security cards, work permits and the ability to travel.

In supporting the president’s imperious go-it-alone approach, Democratic leaders have acquiesced to what Turley calls “their own institutional obsolescence.” They’ve handed a tool of mischief to the next chief executive.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has a chance to be relevant by pushing a bill that would grant legal status to undocumented immigrants brought here as minors. Such a bill also would continue funding for the Department of Homeland Security before a Feb. 27 budget deadline. The Senate and White House would bristle about a package less generous than the big bill passed by a Democratic Senate in 2013, but if enacted, such a measure would be the law of the land until and unless a new Congress and president overrode it. Unless, that is, Americans decide the Constitution doesn’t mean anything.doesn’t mean anything.

Has anybody figured out who is who on this dance card?  If odimwit and company aren't the ones that are supposed to be in charge of this nation....then who.  I, too, remember something about a constitutional meeting (the proper name of the meeting escapes me at the moment) and we have a situation where two governments are occupying the same territory, then we are in trouble.

Yes Anne. There are two governments. The one now in control is NOT the Constitutional Republic form of government. They are usurpers who have taken over by means of fraud and deception. It is a Federal Corporation only posing as a lawful, legitimate government, also known as a government de facto. The true government still exists but is dormant as far as being in control. Most of this mess started during the Civil War, which was the reason for the Civil War, to DIVIDE and CONQUER. The following will help explain the situation. If you are not familiar with these facts, it may be hard to understand. There is A LOT of history concerning the mess America is in. If you would like more info, please ask.

There is proof of two national governments in this Supreme Court decision of;
(Downes v. Bidwell, 182, U.S. 244 1901) by giving the following dissenting opinion: “Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and independently of that Instrument. By exercising such powers as other nations of the earth are accustomed to, a radical and mischievous change in our system of government will result.... We will, in that event, pass from the era of constitutional liberty guarded and protected by a written constitution into an era of legislative absolutism.… It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside the supreme law of the land finds lodgement in our constitutional jurisprudence."

The government now in control is the one that is maintained by Congress, the unlawful, private, de facto Federal Corporation (a socialist democracy). The government that should be in control, is the de jure Constitutional Republican form of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. These definitions are from Blacks Law Dictionary, 2nd Edition.
De facto – In fact, in deed, actually. This phrase is used to characterize an officer, a government, a past action, or a state of affairs which must be accepted for all practical purposes, but is illegal or illegitimate. Thus, an office, position or status existing under a claim or color of right (colored to appear as something that it is not…fraud) such as a de facto corporation. In this sense it is the contrary of de jure, which means rightful, legitimate, just, or constitutional. Thus, an officer, king, or government de facto is one who is in actual possession of the office or supreme power, but by usurpation, or without lawful title; while an officer, king, or governor de jure is one who has just claim and rightful title to the office or power, but has never had plenary possession of it, or is not in actual possession. MacLeod v. United States, 229 U.S. 416, 33 S.Ct. 955, 57 L.Ed. 1260.

If the Top General knows this, Why can't they go in our W.H. & arrest obama

The military can go in and put a stop to this mess if there are enough of them who want to see America restored. The problem is that the military is divided much like the Country. This is why Odumbo has been purging the military of those who he feels will NOT support him in his treason. We need to let the good guys in the military know that we will support them if they want to lawfully restore the American Republic. To those of you in the military. Stand up for the Constitutional Republic and tell this Corporate de facto  socialist garbage to pack their bags. I will stand with you, guaranteed. 

Send the UN packing as well.

They want to make it a crime if someone speaks out against Islam....question.  If it will be a crime to speak out against Islam....will it be a crime if they speak out against Christianity and Christians?  Remember...what's good for the goose....

That behavior alone strongly indicates that he will toy with us and make us think we will have elections....but I seriously doubt it.  The behavior indicates that he has no intention of giving up the presidency to whom ever is elected or that there will be some kind of manufactured crises that will give him the power to stop the elections.
