Cagle Post: A Tale Of Two Heads of State
On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly and vocalized many truths that President Obama simply refuses to. Netanyahu stated that “ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree. ISIS and Hamas share a fanatical creed, which they both seek to impose well beyond the territory under their control.” In addition, the Israeli Prime Minister pledged that the focus must not solely be eliminating ISIS but also not forgetting about Iran before they are able to create their own nuclear state.
Prime Minister Netanyahu also gravely warned against the consideration of allying with the Iran, which some leaders have hinted they would like to attempt. As reported by the New York Post, “Both the Islamic Republic [Iran] and the Islamic State plan to defeat democracies and replace them with an Islamic order, he noted, even comparing them to Nazis, who ‘believed in a master race,’ just as ‘the militant Islamists believe in a master faith.’” Siding with Iran is siding with the enemy.
The contrasts between the way Benjamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama deal with terrorist threats are shocking. Obama has simply refused to believe that the United States is at war with radical Islam and he has placed our nation on its weakest footing to-date. InSunday night’s much-maligned interview with 60 Minutes, Obama squarely placed the blame for the underestimation of ISIS’ power on the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stating, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” The amount of times this president has used the “it’s not my fault it’s theirs” card is frightening. Unlike Benjamin Netanyahu, Obama is simply more focused on politics rather than admitting mistakes and finding sound solutions.

Breitbart: Eric Holder Is Gone, Now Is The Time To Clean Up The Mess
Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation comes as no surprise and brings to an end one of the most polarizing tenures of an Attorney General in the Department of Justice’s history. Although Eric Holder should have been fired long ago, having an Attorney General whose sole mission was to protect President Obama from scandal after scandal out of office is always welcome news.
But why is Eric Holder leaving now? Similar to so many of Eric Holder’s decisions, this one was purely political in nature. He is hoping that his successor will be able to get through the process during the lame duck session following the midterm elections. It is becoming increasingly likely that Democrats will lose the majority in the U.S. Senate, making it a tough hill to climb for a controversial Obama Attorney General pick to get confirmed in a Republican controlled Senate. It is fitting that even when resigning Holder sides with politics over ethics.
Eric Holder’s record was, in one word, terrible. Not only was he the only sitting Cabinet member to have been held in contempt of Congress because of the Fast and Furious scandal, but Holder also named Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator for leaks from the Department of Justice with no proof.

Cagle Post: The Dysfunctional U.N.
Today, President Obama will chair a United Nations Security Council meeting in New York City. In an effort to show that the U.N. is actually doing something to combat terror, The New York Times is reporting that Obama will try to “adopt a binding resolution that would compel all countries to put in place domestic laws to prosecute those who travel abroad to join terrorist organizations and those who help them, including by raising funds.” The resolution itself is unsurprisingly not very threatening or imposing.
Far too often President Obama has relied on the U.N. where real American leadership is needed. Even though America and our Arab allies are dropping bombs in Syria and Iraq right now to go after the ISIS threat it seems to me that this meeting of U.N. leaders is a way of taking other action through diplomacy and suggestion rather than actually doing anything of substance. Simply, this resolution being proposed is a paper tiger that is not binding.
It is one thing to make suggestions as to what should be done if a citizen of your country has pledged to join a terrorist organization, and something entirely different to lay out an actual plan of action against these said-traitors. While this U.N. effort may seem questionable, there are many world leaders who are simply choosing not to be a part of Obama’s initiative and instead focus on…global warming.

Breitbart: $22 Trillion For What?
The annual report by the Census Bureau on poverty was released this past week, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty. It should come as no surprise that the War on Poverty has not been a success by any stretch of the imagination. In 50 years, American taxpayers have spent an unimaginable $22 trillion on this so-called war.
According to Investor’s Business Daily: “Adjusting for inflation, [$22 trillion is] three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. The federal government currently runs more than 80 means-tested welfare programs. These programs provide cash, food, housing and medical care to low-income Americans. Federal and state spending on these programs last year was $943 billion.”
There is no doubt that poverty is a major problem in the United States; however, today the poverty rate hovers around 14%, which is actually higher than the poverty rate when President Johnson’s programs were launched. How in the world is it possible that programs which spend approximately $943 billion annually have failed to even make a dent in the population of poor Americans?

The Cagle Post: Protecting The 7th Floor
Ever since four brave Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya two years ago, many questions have been raised about what then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew before, during, and after the fact. A shocking article by former CBS News investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson published in The Daily Signal sheds light on what Hillary Clinton and her protectors did in the days and weeks after the attack. As someone who has investigated the Clintons for years, this type of cover up is nothing new and unfortunately expected. It’s in the Clinton playbook – obstruct and cover-up.
According to Attkisson’s reporting, “Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to ‘separate’ damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.” The story is based on an interview with Raymond Maxwell, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who came forward with new details. For example, an office manager told Maxwell to “go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the ‘seventh floor’ in a bad light” – seventh floor was a code word for Hillary Clinton and her group of “principal advisors.”
It is no surprise that leading this clandestine effort was none other than Clinton’s Chief of Staff and confidant Cheryl Mills and Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. Both have extensive history with Hillary Clinton, and Cheryl Mills worked in the Clinton Administration during the myriad of scandals. Hillary wanted to keep whatever happened the night of September 11, 2012 in Libya under wraps that is why she tapped her most trusted aides to do her dirty work. Somewhere H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman would be proud.

Breitbart: A Politicized Justice Department
The latest twist to the ever-evolving IRS political targeting scandal, which began over a year ago now, would have been even bigger news this week were it not for the ISIS terrorist threat.
A top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder made a fatal error on Tuesday: Holder’s spokesman, Brian Fallon, mistakenly called House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s office in search of “some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups."
This devastating revelation is just further proof that nothing about Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s investigation into IRS targeting is legitimate, and, as is the case with this current administration as a whole, partisan politics reign supreme.

Cagle.com: President Obama On The Wrong Side Of History
President Obama and his administration are fond of bragging that they believe themselves to be on the “right side of history.”
Strangely, what Obama seems to think the right side of history is and what actual history proves, are two very different things.
Time and again, in his quest to be on the right side of history, Obama has come down on the wrong side of human liberty and dignity.
“I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history,”he said at a February 4, 2011 press conference.

Citizens United Vote Alert On The Udall Amendment Against Citizens United
Citizens United urges all U.S. Senators to oppose S.J. Res. 19, a proposed constitutional amendment by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico, as well as any other attempts to limit the free speech of American citizens.

Breitbart: Harry Reid's Senate Is Focused On Citizens United While The World Is Burning
It has been a long, hot summer here in America and abroad. ISIS is on the march and has brutally beheaded two American journalists. The threat is so large that you even have liberal United States Senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Al Franken (D-MN) openly questioning President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
The last time the threat to the homeland was this grave was in the aftermath of September 11th. So, what is first on the policy agenda for the United States Senate after a month-long recess? Developing a response to ISIS? Or even a policy on the Russian advances in the Ukraine? No! Reid has his sights on gutting the First Amendment and overturning the landmark Citizens United Supreme Court decision.
This folly known as S.J. Res. 19, introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), is just another example of how out-of-touch the Democrat-controlled United States Senate is and why Congress, according to the Real Clear Politics average, is at nearly a 80 percent disapproval rating. Harry Reid and the Democrat Caucus that he leads are completely consumed by a political agenda that attacks Citizens United. Why? Because the Citizens United decision gives a powerful voice to the opposition and makes it easier to participate in the process -- a scary thought for liberal incumbents.
