John Kerry thinks terrorists might have had cause for murdering cartoonists but the attack on Paris is beyond the pale. He backpedalled his statement but here it is. At least he didn’t croon “You’ve got a friend”.
He based his presidential campaign in 2004 on the idea that Islamic jihad is just a nuisance. President Obama feels the same. He wants to close Gitmo and prosecute Islamic jihadists though the US court system.
This analysis by John Lloyd of Reuters says it’s not only an act of war, ISIS is an “existential threat”.
Investigators are 90% sure a bomb took down Russian Metrojet Flight 9268 in Egypt. The plane took off from the Sharm el-Sheikh resort on the Sinai peninsula. ISIS is active in the Sinai and took credit for the bombing.
Thousands British and Russian tourists stranded at Sharm el-Sheikh are being flown home without their checked baggage due to bomb fears.
A group of House Republicans conspired in the demise of Speaker John Boehner. They thought he was ineffective. Unfortunately their replacement Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, was even more ineffective. He committed a gaffe that fit the Democrat’s narrative that the Benghazi hearings were all about destroying Hillary.
So they had to whack him too.
President Obama is big on collectives. He thinks that, since we didn’t pass his gun control legislation, we are “collectively responsible” for those shot and killed at a community college in Oregon. He’s getting pretty darned tired of having to point this out every time there’s a mass shooting. Jacob Sullum at Reason is getting pretty darned tired of explaining why this makes no sense.
Last weekend in Obama’s adopted hometown Chicago 14 people were shot, 6 were killed. Chicago has the gun control laws the president says we need.
At a press conference this week Mrs. Clinton said college women who claim they were raped should be believed. She even reinforced her remarks by tweeting this little video saying you have a right to be believed.
A discredited Rolling Stone story earlier this year showed that’s not always the case.
What was Hillary thinking? Maybe was reaching out to Juanita Broaddrick. This is from a February 25, 1999 article by Howard Kurtz in the Washington Post:
Juanita Broaddrick told her story to a national television audience last night, saying she did not tell authorities 21 years ago of her contention that Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her because “I just don’t think anyone would have believed me.”
