Didn’t Obama say Monday that they had been “driven back”?
The London Daily Mail has the story…

- Foley speaks to camera before his death and labels the US his killersApparently coerced by his captors into speaking against his country
- A masked and robed member of ISIS speaking English in what is thought to be a British accent addresses the camera as well
- After the execution of Foley, the ISIS member says that missing American journalist Steven Joel Sotloff will be killed nextA man identified as Sotloff in a caption on the video is then paraded in front of the camera
- Beheading comes one day after ISIS threat to America that ‘we will drown all you in blood’ for the US-aided Kurdish recapture of the Mosul Dam
The mother of executed photo-journalist James Wright Foley, 40, has issued a statement after a video surfaced Tuesday showing his horrific beheading by ISIS terrorists as revenge for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
In a statement posted on the Free James Foley Facebook page, Diane Foley writes that she and husband John ‘have never been prouder of our son Jim’.
Mrs Foley writes that her son spent his life fighting to expose the suffering of the Syrian people, while pleading with his captors to spare the lives of remaining captive Steven Joel Soltoff, who also appears in the video as the group’s next target,
‘We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world.
‘We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us. He was an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person.’
…President Barack Obama was briefed on the video as he was flying back to the White House on Air Force One From his Martha’s Vineyard vacation. White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden says the administration has seen the video.
And, just what did the Leader of the Free World do about this outrage?
That’s right, boys and girls. Absolutely nothing. He went back to his taxpayer-funded vay-cay.
President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place.
Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon.
Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose of skepticism, since Obama rarely interrupts his vacations.
Judicial Watch estimates the extra roundtrip cost $1.1 million. Only daughter Malia accompanied Obama back to Washington.
Speculation for why Obama returned focused around the possibility of a secret foreign leader meeting or the roll out of a new administration initiative on immigration or corporate taxes.
But no such explanation materialized.
Remember how gentlemanly Republican Presidential Candidate was to Obama during his campaign? How he refused to “take the gloves off” and attack Obama like he did his fellow Republican Contenders for his Party’s Nomination?
Well, now Mitt says that Obama is even worse in his second term as President than he thought he would be.
Well, duuuh, Mitt. We told ya so.
The Washington Times reports that
When Mitt Romney stumped here Tuesday for a trio of Republican candidates for Congress, the event had all the trappings of a “Romney for President” rally.
The crowd chanted, “Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!” They applauded loudest when the 2012 Republican standard-bearer took center stage, eclipsing the three Republican candidates who actually will be on West Virginia ballots in November.
Outside the event, union activists demonstrated. They denounced Mr. Romney as a “fat cat” and the “king of exporting jobs.”
Mr. Romney endured the same kinds of attacks during his run as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.
Just about everyone attending the rally — the Republican candidates, party donors, reporters — pestered Mr. Romney privately and publicly about whether he will run for president again.
Each time, Mr. Romney insisted that he would not run. He has made that claim repeatedly as supporters clamor for his candidacy and his actions — if not his words — send mixed signals about his intentions.
“I’m not running,” Mr. Romney told reporters after the rally. “I’m expecting to be getting behind some good people or a good person who will be [the Republican nominee].”
The former Massachusetts governor has some pointed words for the man who defeated him two years ago, saying President Obama was doing “a good deal worse than even I expected.” He cited the U.S. economy and troubles abroad in such hot spots as Iraq, Syria and Russia.
“I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said, “but the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.”
Really, Mitt? Jim Foley would agree with you. If, he still had his head.
By now, Gentle Reader, you are probably wondering what the point of today’s post is.
My anger today is all about an oath,, which an ego-centric, unvetted, Former Community Organizer took on Tuesday, January 20, 2009…
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Since Obama took Office, he has been on a mission to “radically change” this “Shining City Upon a Hill”, our Constitutional Republic, into a Democratic Socialist country, no better than any other third world country.
His purposeful quest toward weakness and mediocrity has cost Jim Foley his young life.
Obama’s impersonal halfway measures against the Radical Muslims in ISIS,, may have won back a strategic dam, but it has just cost an American’s life.
During his presidency Obama has reached out to adherents of the “Religion of Peace, addressing them shortly after his first Inauguration at the University of Cairo, in a conciliatory speech, setting a milksop tone for his Foreign Policy, which after its full implementation, has turned out, at the hands of Obama and his two Secretaries of State, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, to be a miserable failure.
The death of Jim Foley is a signal of defiance from ISIS, and, of their disdain for President “Pantywaist, as the British Press dubbed Barack Hussein Obama, early on in his presidency.
Just as President Ronald Reagan, by shooting a missile straight into Muammar Gaddafi’s bedroom, shut him up for 25 years, so does Barack Hussein Obama have to make a show of decisiveness and strentgh, in retaliation for the beheading of Jim Foley, shown on the internet around the world.
The safety of our nation and its citizens demands it.
Until He Comes,
