Smack Talking ISIS Threatens to Blow Up Obama's Crib

The fanatical Islamic jihadist organization ISIS is getting close to jumping the shark with their latest audacious series of threats. The group’s alleged spokesman has boasted that his ragtag army of smelly, gut-eating, Allah worshipping, ragheaded desert punks are going to swarm European cities Rome and Paris and absorb them into the great Islamist caliphate. For good measure the mouthy Abu Muhammad al-Adnani - who in any civilized society would be fortunate to find work as a clerk at a 7-11 store - upped the ante to include blowing up the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and Emperor Barack Obama’s crib over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

According to the website of the Washington D.C. television station CBS DC in the story “ISIS Vows To ‘Blow Up The White House, Big Ben And The Eiffel Tower’”:

En route to conquering the European cities of Paris and Rome, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria says they plan to “blow up” the White House, Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower.
ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani detailed the terror group’s plans to conquer Portugal, Spain, Paris and Rome in an almost 30-minute audio message to the West, “So They Kill And Are Killed,” which references a Koran verse.

“We won the day Europe and U.S. dreamt of reclaiming Tal Hamis, Mosul, Sinjar, Tikrit, Qaim, Derna, Tell Abyad, and more,” stated the ISIS mouthpiece, as transcribed by Ynet News.

“We — with Allah’s help — want Paris, before Rome and Islamic Iberia and after we blow up the White House, Big Ben, and the Eiffel Tower before Paris, and Rome,” al-Adnani warned. “The Muslims will return to power, to be the vanguard and lead in every place.”

It is such a crock of horseshit that it could have come from a U.S. politician and is so over the top that it is laughable in a way that with any serious group would have members drenched in shame. This pack of degenerate douchebags are lucky to be able to pull off their trademark cowardly ambushes and highly choreographed beheadings against overwhelmed and unarmed victims but storming and conquering the world’s great cities is a fantasy. I don’t believe that the potent hallucinogenic peyote cactus is found in the Middle Eastern deserts that these savages prance around in but they definitely sound like they are high on something.

Blowing up the White House is ludicrous and could be easier pulled off by a few drunken Secret Service agents by accident than the vastly overrated black menace. ISIS is smelling their own piss and why not? It’s not as though the western media – in particular the sensationalist MSM in the U.S. – doesn't practically act as their public relations arm by ensuring that every grotesque beheading gets blanket coverage. As the media maxim goes, if if bleeds, it leads but at what point does it just become the height of irresponsibility by promoting these sleazy assholes in a manner that they never could accomplish themselves?

ISIS is obviously intoxicated on their own bullshit, watch too many movies and are even being given a run for their money in the beheading business by our wonderful and humane allies in Saudi Arabia. The media should stop feeding into the hysteria which would not only take some wind out of the group’s sails but probably seriously crimp recruiting efforts as well.

President Lindsey Graham Would "Literally Use the Military" Against Congress

While the United States Congress currently enjoys approval ratings hovering somewhere between genital herpes and pedophilia it as after all a body mandated by the Constitution. The legislative branch is badly broken as is evident by the failure to put a check on the unitary executive (aka the king), the churning out of laws that destroy our cherished birthright civil liberties and the ongoing meddling in overseas conflicts with the main purpose of juicing arms sales. In a land of widespread institutional failure and corruption there are few worse than 'our elected representatives' when it comes to an illustration of just how far that we have fallen.

The U.S. Congress as it currently exists is the biggest gaggle of zanies, liars, cheats, perverts, con artists, charlatans, demagogues, egomaniacs, de facto lobbyists and outright traitors in the land. But as poisoned as the institution has become it is still firmly embodied within the U.S. Constitution. So whenever a prospective presidential candidate shoots off his mouth calling for sending the military after Congress it should turn a few heads.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who is Robin to John McCain’s Batman as well as one of the most strident, big government worshippers in Congress drew scorn over comments that seemed to call for a military coup. While speaking in front of the "politics and pies" forum in New Hampshire where he was promoting his long shot White House bid, the Palmetto State Princess let slip that as president he would unleash the troops against the legislature if they didn’t acquiesce to his whims.

As reported by the website Vox in a story entitled “Lindsey Graham: As president I would deploy the military against Congress”:

Republican senator and presidential maybe-hopeful Lindsey Graham stopped by the "politics and pies" forum in Concord, New Hampshire, today, where he announced that if he is elected president in 2016, his first act will be to deploy the military in Washington to force Congress to reverse cuts to the defense and intelligence budgets.
Yes, you heard that right. Here are Graham's exact words:

And here's the first thing I would do if I were president of the United States. I wouldn't let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We're not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We are not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.

Graham would use the military to force members of Congress to not just vote on the bill — but to pass it. Graham didn't say "until I get an up-or-down vote on restoring defense cuts." He said "until we restore these defense cuts."

In other words, Graham is proposing that his first act as president would be to use the military to force the legislative branch to pass his agenda.

Graham’s staff flew into damage control mode to spin it as a “joke” taken out of context by his political opponents but with this particular authority loving fascist one never knows. 
Graham is a media darling for his availability and the gift of providing great sound bites on any number of issues about war and the domestic police and surveillance state. He has gone so far as to babble about the possibility of a nuclear device being detonated in Charleston Harbor and has never met a foreign conflict that he would not send the sons and daughters of American mothers off to die for. He also is one of the biggest advocates of the ongoing drive to bestow near godlike powers on the federal government to monitor every phone call, email, text and purchase that Americans make with all to be archived in a massive NSA storage facility for some vague future use by a future president. He is also a full blown, balls out lunatic.

Graham’s call for sending the military after Congress was really less of a joke than another outbreak of his paranoid delusions coupled with an incurable case of diarrhea of the mouth. Thank God that this crank has about as much chance at becoming President of the United States as Kim Kardashian does.

Secretive Senate Committee Rubber Stamps CISA Cybersecurity Bill

There is an acronym that is very descriptive of life in Obamastan and that is BOHICA which stands for Bend Over Here It Comes Again. The most recent example is the secretive Senate committee that just put their seal of approval on the brand new cybersecurity bill. It is just the latest stomping down of the big government jackboot on the privacy rights of law-abiding citizens. Not that the average American even has a say in the shredding of the Constitution by our rancid and rogue political system because when you have thinks like secret courtssecret panelssecret deliberations and secret deals then how can you really have a "free" country? The merger of state and corporate power has a name and that is fascism. The coming accord between big government and big business to put Americans under the watchful eye of big brother is just another step closer to the edge of that abyss.

According to the leading tech website CNET in a story entitled “Senate panel approves controversial cybersecurity bill”:

The Senate Intelligence Committee approved a controversial cyberscurity bill on Thursday that's designed to help companies and the federal government better defend against the growing threat of data breaches.

Approved by a 14-1 vote, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) aims -- by providing expanded legal liability protections to companies sharing data -- to encourage US companies to share information about security breaches with each other and government agencies. Supporters argue that the legislation is necessary to reduce the impact of an uptick in the theft of customers' personal information.
"This current bill is critically important both for our agencies that keep the country safe, and the institutions that hold millions of Americans' personal information," Sen. Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican and chairman of the panel, said in a statement.

The committee passed a similar bill last year by a 12-3 vote, but the measure stalled after privacy advocates raised concerns that it would reinforce government powers to conduct surveillance on US citizens, particularly after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden released details of the secret spying programs.

Sen. Ron Wyden, the only lawmaker to vote against the new bill Thursday, said the measure "lacks adequate protections for the privacy rights of American consumers, and...will have a limited impact on US cybersecurity."

"This information-sharing is only acceptable if there are strong protections for the privacy rights of law-abiding American citizens," Wyden said in a statement. "If information-sharing legislation does not include adequate privacy protections, then that's not a cybersecurity bill -- it's a surveillance bill by another name."

Senator Wyden has consistently been one of the lone voices speaking out from inside the belly of the beast that is our Leviathan federal government. However, as the 14-1 vote to move closer to the inevitable cram down of this totalitarian wet dream shows, he is badly outnumbered. It’s notable to see how despite the official media narrative that Democrats and Republicans are at loggerheads over everything that when it comes to giving the federal government even more power to snoop on Americans they are in unison.

It’s the same way with foreign wars that have nothing to do with our national interests and everything to do with selling weapons to keep the campaign contributions flowing and not acting to control our porous borders. When do actual Americans have a voice on any of this crap? The idea that democracy still exists in the post 9/11 doppelganger of what used to be the United States of America is a hoax and a very sick one at that. Big time anti-American scams like the CISA bill and the coming ultra-secret Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) show how much influence that the ordinary Joe and Jane really have anymore. Just go and ask the conservatives who turned out in droves back in November to make a statement for change. It didn't take very long for the same corrupt “leaders” to be put right back in charge and those campaign promises rapidly reneged upon.

The corrupted system is desperately working to immunize itself from any future efforts for change if and when the star spangled sheep are ever able to wake up from their slumber and mount a challenge. The cybersecurity bill which is an extension of the NSA Stasi government power into private industry will ensure that any dissent will be rapidly squashed.

Land of Fear: Media Hypes Ranting of Deranged Ohio Loser

With the Department of Homeland Security now fully funded for the immediate future the parade of bogeymen and bogus terror plots just doesn’t stop. The apex of scary bullshit was reached two weeks ago with the triple whammy of the Mall of America threat, the feds’ busting up of an alleged ISIS cell and the outing of Jihadi John as a former British computer programmer. But the American fear machine that provides the propaganda for the multi-billion dollar terror war industry never sleeps. This weekend the bewildered herd is being subjected to the repackaging of a 20 year old loser who was arrested by the FBI back in January for allegedly planning an attack on the U.S. Capitol.

In a Cincinnati television station interview, Christopher Cornell spoke of wanting to plant bombs at the Capitol, the Israeli embassy and bust a cap into the skull of Emperor Barack Obama himself. As reported by Reuters in the story “Ohio man accused of plotting Capitol attack says would have shot Obama”.

An Ohio man claiming sympathy with Islamic State militants and charged with plotting to attack the U.S. Capitol said in a television interview that he would have shot President Barack Obama in the head.

Christopher Cornell, 20, told Cincinnati's FOX 19 WXIX TV that if he had not been arrested by FBI agents in January, he would have carried out an alleged plot to plant pipe bombs on the Capitol and at the Israeli Embassy.

"What would I have done? I would have took my gun, I would have put it to Obama's head and I would have pulled the trigger," Cornell, of Cincinnati, said in a telephone interview from the Boone County, Kentucky, jail aired on Friday.
"Then I would have released more bullets on the Senate and the House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli Embassy and various other buildings full of kafir (a Muslim term for infidel) who want to wage war against us Muslims and shed our blood. That's what would happen," he said.

Cornell was arrested after he researched how to make pipe bombs, purchased a rifle and ammunition and made plans to travel to Washington to carry out the plot, according to court testimony from an FBI informant.

The idea that young Cornell’s "plot" had even a minuscule chance of success is preposterous. He is just one more pathetic loser entrapped by the feds to be trotted to scare gullible Americans into surrendering their liberty and money to feed the surveillance state monster. I haven’t seen the Sunday morning McNews show lineup yet but look for Cornell to make a guest appearance as fodder for some fascist pushing for the renewal of the USA PATRIOT Act in a few months.

While the media was breathlessly elevating Cornell to a potential threat of near Osama bin Laden sized proportions some inconvenient omissions were brought up by the website The Intercept. The story published just after Cornell’s arrest entitled “Latest FBI Claim Of Disrupted Terror Plot Deserves Much Scrutiny and Skepticism” elaborates on the foiled “plot”:

The Justice Department on Wednesday issued a press release trumpeting its latest success in disrupting a domestic terrorism plot, announcing that “the Joint Terrorism Task Force has arrested a Cincinnati-area man for a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol and kill government officials.” The alleged would-be terrorist is 20-year-old Christopher Cornell (above), who is unemployed, lives at home, spends most of his time playing video games in his bedroom, still addresses his mother as “Mommy” and regards his cat as his best friend; he was described as “a typical student” and “quiet but not overly reserved” by the principal of the local high school he graduated in 2012.

The affidavit filed by an FBI investigative agent alleges Cornell had “posted comments and information supportive of [ISIS] through Twitter accounts.” The FBI learned about Cornell from an unnamed informant who, as the FBI put it, “began cooperating with the FBI in order to obtain favorable treatment with respect to his criminal exposure on an unrelated case.” Acting under the FBI’s direction, the informant arranged two in-person meetings with Cornell where they allegedly discussed an attack on the Capitol, and the FBI says it arrested Cornell to prevent him from carrying out the attack.

Family members say Cornell converted to Islam just six months ago and claimed he began attending a small local mosque. Yet The Cincinnati Enquirer could not find a single person at that mosque who had ever seen him before, and noted that a young, white, recent convert would have been quite conspicuous at a mosque largely populated by “immigrants from West Africa,” many of whom “speak little or no English.”

The DOJ’s press release predictably generated an avalanche of scary media headlines hailing the FBI. CNN: “FBI says plot to attack U.S. Capitol was ready to go.” MSNBC: “US terror plot foiled by FBI arrest of Ohio man.” Wall St. Journal: “Ohio Man Charged With Plotting ISIS-Inspired Attack on U.S. Capitol.”

Americans continue to fall for this crap hook, line and sinker too and while the media and government bear much of the blame for the brainwashing it isn't like alternatives to the state-corporate media are not available. It really sucks to see all of this happening in a country that used to be proud about being the "home of the brave" but now seems to be largely populated by lemmings and sheep conditioned to live in a constant state of fear.

Jihadi John Says Fund the Department of Homeland Security

It has been a week filled with ludicrous, over the top fear mongering as the clock ticks down on fully funding the Department of Homeland Security. First it was the alleged terrorist plot to attack the Mall of America, a danger to the public that was pimped across all five Sunday morning McNews shows by DHS boss Jeh Johnson. Then there was yet another busting of domestic ISIS "recruits" who ended up being a few pathetic losers who were entrapped by the Feds. But the granddaddy of them all just happens to conveniently pop up on the day prior to the expiration of funding DHS. Anyone who sees the way that this government operates has to be shaking their heads over the formal identification of Jihadi John, the baddest Muslim motherfucker of them all.

The network and cable TV McNews shows and internet ‘news’ sites are filled to the brim today with tales of the hideous head chopping ISIS √úbermensch tabbed as Jihadi John and his henchmen "the Beatles". The Department of Homeland Security could not have possibly asked for a better pitchman to finally close the deal on continued funding for the American Gestapo than the British beheading machine. This may finally be what it takes for Speaker John Boehner to crack and sign onto the trickery of the splitting off Obama's amnesty decree from the DHS funding which is a farce. The entire mainstream media is selling it hard today as though they were starving used car salesmen hustling their asses off in the waning days of the week before Christmas. In a way that is exactly what they are but a pack of whores trying to rake it in the day before the naval fleet leaves their port may be a more apropos metaphor.

The masked "Jihadi John" killer who fronted Islamic State beheading videos has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a British computer programming graduate from a well-to-do London family.

The black-clad militant brandishing a knife and speaking with an English accent was shown in videos released by Islamic State (IS) apparently decapitating hostages including Americans, Britons and Syrians.

The 26-year-old militant used the videos to threaten the West, admonish its Arab allies and taunt President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron before petrified hostages cowering in orange jump suits.

Emwazi's name was first disclosed by the Washington Post, citing unidentified former associates, but two U.S. government sources who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed to Reuters that investigators believed Jihadi John was Emwazi.

Dressed entirely in black, a balaclava covering all but his eyes and the bridge of his nose and a holster under his left arm, Jihadi John became a menacing symbol of Islamic State brutality and one of the world's most wanted men.

Hostages called him John as he and other Britons in Islamic State had been nicknamed the Beatles.

The Washington Post took credit for the journalistic coup of identifying Jihadi John in the piece “‘Jihadi John’: Islamic State killer is identified as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi”. The scoop likely had tens if not hundreds of thousands of people dependent on the Washington centered war on terror industry jumping for joy as the money spigots can’t possibly be turned off while a fiend like him is at large. If you happen to be inclined to do such things go and bet the mortgage money on a renewal of Homeland Security funding before time officially runs out on Friday.

While I don’t at all dismiss the very serious threat of Islamist fanatics with a huge scimitar to grind going on the rampage and plotting to attack America, it is also advantageous for a trillion dollar industry to have an ample supply of bogeymen to trot out whenever the need arises.  Like everything else this week the timing and saturation coverage of Jihadi John has a rather pungent smell emanating from it.  Kind of like money mixed with bullshit and really, who but a compete sucker can believe anything that comes out of a government that lies about everything as a first resort. The media only serves as it's propaganda arm.

It's the timing that gives it away which shows more than anything how much that the government and the Obama regime have come to see Americans as chumps ripe for the taking.
