Scott Walker at CPAC: If I Can Take On 100,000 Protesters, I Can Take on ISIS

Scott Walker at the CPAC Q&A gets a question on 'how he would deal with ISIS'
Look for the lib media to talk about this for at least a week or 2




DNC is already out with a response to Walker's comments--
In response to Scott Walker’s comments at CPAC comparing ISIS to union members, DNC Communications Director Mo Elleithee released the following statement:

“If Scott Walker thinks that it’s appropriate to compare working people speaking up for their rights to brutal terrorists, then he is even less qualified to be president than I thought. Maybe he should go back to punting.”



 

ISIS Fighters Ransack Ancient Museum in Mosul, Destroying Priceless Statues, Artifacts (VIDEO)

Islamic State terrorists have destroyed a priceless collection of statues and sculptures dating back to the 7th century B.C., inflicting what an archaeologist described as incalculable damage to a piece of shared human history

Why would ISIS destroy an ancient museum?

This ISIS militant in the video (below)  says the statues are what he calls 'idols' from the time of the Assyrians and the Arcadians, a time -- he says -- when people worshipped something other than god.

He says the Prophet Muhammad 'ordered' Muslims to get rid of statues and relics.

Watch the video- So, I guess this also has nothing to do with Islam either, right?

'Jihadi John’ Identified as Mohammed Emwazi From London


BBC says the Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from West London is key suspect in killings of Western journalist and his aid workers



Times of Israel
The Islamic State fighter known as “Jihadi John,” who has been seen in videos of showing the beheadings of Western hostages, has been recognized by the BBC as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from West London.

According to the BBC, Emwazi was known to UK security services, but his name has been withheld from the public for operational reasons.

Last August, Emwazi, sporting a black robe and speaking with a thick British accent, was featured in an Islamic State video in which he apparently killed American journalist James Foley. He was later believed to have been seen in the videos of the beheadings of US journalist Steven Sotloff, British aid worker David Haines, British taxi driver Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, also known as Peter, the BBC reported.

Emwazi was a “person of interest” to the British MI5 intelligence agency at least since 2011, as he had been discussed in semi-secret court cases relating to extremism overseas and in the UK, the BBC reported. He had been previously described as a member of a network involving at least 13 other British extremists

Surprise:  'Jihadi John' comes from a wealthy London family

In his opening statement at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday on President Barack Obama’s immigration executive orders, future Attorney General Trey Gowdy hammered the administration for ignoring the rule of law while warning Democrats of the long-term consequences of Obama’s actions.

This is awesome.


"I gonna say this to those who benefit from the president's policies.

 You may be willing to allow the ends justify the means in this case, you may well like the fact that the president has abused prosecutorial discretion and confered benefits in an unprecedented way, you may benefit from the president's failure to enforce the law today but I'll make you this promise, there will come a day were you will cry out for the enforcement on the law, there will come a day were you long for the law to be the foundation up this republic to you be careful what you do with the wall today because if you weaken it today you weaken it forever"

3 Brooklyn Men Arrested For Attempting to Travel to Istanbul to Join ISIS


State Dept. mouthpiece Marie Harf would probably blame this on the lack of jobs in New York.

The 3 men, arrested today by FBI agents,  discussed launching terror attacks in the U.S. if they were unable to join ISIS overseas


wcbstv
NEW YORK – FBI agents in Brooklyn have arrested three men for allegedly attempting to travel abroad to join the terror group ISIS.

The trio had discussed launching attacks domestically if they were unable to travel to join them, authorities said. 
Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, Akhror Saidakhmetov and Abror Habibov face charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.

Back in the summer of 2014, Juraboev, 24, and Saidakhmetov, 19, had expressed support online for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq in Syria, authorities said.

They had devised a plan to travel to Turkey and then Syria to wage jihad, authorities said.

Saidakhmetov was arrested early Wednesday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he was about to board a flight to Istanbul.

Saidakhmetov allegedly plotted to buy a machine gun and kill police officers and FBI agents if he was unable to join ISIS in Syria, authorities said.


 

Iran Blows Up a Replica U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Missile Drill (PHOTO)

Video screen grab--

Iran's Chief Military Commander General Mohammed Ali Jafari explained that the exercise was to send a "message" to "extraterritorial enemies," in reference to the United States.

This is who we're cutting a deal with...

Iran has staged a series of military drills, including a simulated attack on a US aircraft carrier, on one of the most strategic stretches of water in the Gulf.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard launched the display of naval and air exercises near the Strait of Hormuz, through which one fifth of the world’s oil supply passes.

Video on Iranian TV showed the deployment of fast boats and missiles against a replica of an American carrier - something not seen before in military drills.

Other exercises included the shooting down of a drone and planting undersea mines.

The unit's navy chief Admiral Ali Fadavi said: "American aircraft carriers are very big ammunition depots," explaining that a direct hit could create huge secondary explosions.

Susan Rice: Netanyahu Planned Address to Congress 'Destructive' (Video)


foxnation

WASHINGTON - Susan Rice, Barack Obama's national security advisor, said on Tuesday night that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's acceptance of an invitation to address Congress next month is "destructive of the fabric of the relationship" between Israel and the United States.

"We've been fortunate that politics have not been injected into that relationship," Rice said to American journalist Charlie Rose.

But "what has happened over the last several weeks, by virtue of the invitation that was issued by the Speaker and the acceptance of it by Prime Minister Netanyahu on two weeks in advance of his election, is that on both sides, there has now been injected a degree of partisanship."

Those decisions were not only unfortunate, they were 'destructive' said Rice


 

Scott Walker Leads Big in Iowa

Scott Walker 25%, Rand Paul 13%, Huckabee 11%

This is the 4th poll in 2015 that has Scott Walker leading all Republicans in Iowa. I should note that this is also another poll showing Marco Rubio at the bottom. He's in 7th place in Iowa with a measly 4%, down 3 points from the Gravis Marketing poll taken in early February.


thehill
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has a strong lead in early-voting Iowa, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Walker sits at 25 percent support in the live-caller poll, almost doubling up his next-closest rival, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has 13 percent in the poll.

Ben Carson  and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee pull 11 percent apiece, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) earns 10 percent support in the poll. No other candidate has more than 5 percent support.

Walker has made a strong first impression in Iowa following his well-received January speech, and the recent media firestorm over his refusal to answer what he considers "gotcha" questions hasn't made a ripple with Republican voters. His approval rating with Republicans sits at 57 percent, with just 7 percent disapproving.

The poll also contains some worrisome numbers for Bush, who has done the most to assemble a campaign team and is viewed as the front-runner in many circles. The former Florida governor's approval rating is at 41 percent with fully 40 percent of Iowa Republicans disapproving, a higher disapproval rating than any other candidate besides New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).



 

Israeli PM Netanyahu Turns Down Meeting With Senate Democrats


Why would he meet with any Democrats when they are the ones (many of them) who are boycotting his speech to congress?

Good for Bibi.



Fox News
WASHINGTON Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday turned down an invitation to meet privately with Senate Democrats next week during his visit to Washington, saying the session "could compound the misperception of partisanship" surrounding his trip.

Angering the White House and Democrats, Netanyahu accepted an invitation from Republican leaders to address a joint meeting of Congress on March 3 and speak about Iran. The GOP leaders did not consult with the Obama administration, which the White House called a breach of protocol.


Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Monday invited Netanyahu to meet in a closed-door session with Democrats during his visit. He declined the invitation on Tuesday and expressed regret about the politically fraught tone of his trip.

"I regret that the invitation to address the special joint session of Congress has been perceived by some to be political or partisan," Netanyahu wrote. "I can assure you that my sole intention in accepting it was to voice Israel's grave concerns about a potential nuclear agreement with Iran that could threaten the survival of my country."
