Joel Rosenberg: The President of the United States has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the Middle East. Mr. Obama apparently has plenty of time to play golf. Yet he refuses to invest the time and energy necessary to come up with a plan to stop — much less defeat — ISIS, despite the genocidal attacks their forces are engaged in and the grave threat they pose to Israel and our Arab allies.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” President Obama admitted during a White House press conference on Thursday.

Why in the world not?

Others have developed sound strategies. Here are a few:

Opinion: Unfortunately, the president has a strategy on Russia’s incursion into Ukraine – Nothing, Nada, Zip-p-p

Putin must be hysterical…

heliZero Hedge: “… A broad-based tax cut, for example, accommodated by a program of open-market purchases to alleviate any tendency for interest rates to increase, would almost certainly be an effective stimulant to consumption and hence to prices. Even if households decided not to increase consumption but instead re-balanced their portfolios by using their extra cash to acquire real and financial assets, the resulting increase in asset values would lower the cost of capital and improve the balance sheet positions of potential borrowers. A money-financed tax cut is essentially equivalent to Milton Friedman’s famous “helicopter drop” of money

A year ago, when it became abundantly clear that all of the Fed’s attempts to boost the economy have failed, leading instead to a record divergence between the “1%” who were benefiting from the Fed’s artificial inflation of financial assets, and everyone else (a topic that would become one of the most discussed issues of 2014) and with no help coming from a hopelessly broken Congress (who can forget the infamous plea by a desperate Wall Street lobby-funding recipient “Get to work Mr. Chairman”), we wrote that “Bernanke’s Helicopter Is Warming Up.”

The reasoning was very simple: in a country (and world) drowning with debt, there are only two options to extinguish said debt: inflate it away or default.

Opinion: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the premier U.S. “think tank” promoting world government. For the past century the CFR has promoted stereotypes of the US as arrogant, self-indulgent, hypocritical, inattentive and unwilling or unable to engage in cross-cultural dialogue.

The CFR, like the Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg, and the Federal Reserve each have separate but similar globalist agendas. One of my favorite quotes from Jack Kinsella, Omega Letter, August 5, 2005:

“They aren’t conspiring with each other, they are under the direction of a Grand Conspirator, like puppets under the control of a single puppet-master. Each has its own agenda, and none are knowingly working to advance the agenda of some other part of the Grand Conspiracy.”

Money creation, like dropping it from a helicopter, or cranking up a garage printing press, will, by simple math, devalue the money in your pocket and bank account. So far we have seen food prices rise an annualized 22% for this year; you don’t hear about it because the mainstream press withholds any news that disparages the president.

Does it feel to you like everything is leading to the Four Horsemen of Revelation 6? False peace, war, economic collapse, and rampant disease. How interesting is the CFR logo?imagesCA9BXLTN

The day will come when men will clamor for a government to solve insurmountable problems. Plank by plank a central world government is being built and the CFR is one of the architects.

Jesus said that, “this generation shall NOT pass, until ALL these things be fulfilledMatthew 24:34.

The Daily Beast: “U.S. warplanes striking targets in Iraq. Iranian tanks are reportedly moving into the northern part of the country. But the two foreign militaries fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) are not talking to one another.

U.S. and Iraqi officials tell The Daily Beast that, for now, there is no direct channel to coordinate military activities inside Iraq. Instead messages are occasionally passed by senior Iraqi officials who have for years served as interlocutors between Iran and the United States.”

Opinion: Chinese checkers anyone?

300px-ChineseCheckersboard

The objective is to be first to race one’s pieces across the hexagram-shaped gameboard into “home”—the corner of the star opposite one’s starting corner—using single-step moves or moves which jump over other pieces. The others continue playing to establish 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and last place finishers. Like other skill-based games, Chinese checkers involves strategy. The rules are simple, so even young children can play.

There are at least 6 main armies involved in Iraq/Syria, each one with different goals and the rules are anything but simple.

  • US Air Force
  • Syria’s armed forces
  • Al Qaeda’s so-called moderate army
  • Peshmerga (Kurdish forces)
  • Iranian tanks
  • ISIS

In this game of “Chinese checkers” all 5 of the armies are against ISIS … sort of.

The US, Iran, and Syria have a common goal but are by no means allies. In fact it was Assad’s army that gassed rebels and of whom John Kerry said the US was going to ‘lightly’ bomb because they crossed Obama’s red line - but nothing ever happened.

Iran and the US are acting like friends while the stalled nuclear talks are on hold, but are against each other because of Iran’s support for Assad. Obama has demanded that Assad be removed from power.

The US will NOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES put boots on the ground but will continue air strikes while Obama figures out a plan.

The US is sort of backing the Peshmerga (Kurds) but have held back on heavy weapons, leaving them vulnerable to ISIS attacks.

The US is sort of backing so-called moderate Al Qaeda, but like the Kurds have been given minimal support leaving them vulnerable to ISIS.

Assad’s Syrian Army is vulnerable to ISIS.

Conclusion: ISIS is the only Army that is sure of its goal to establish an Islamic caliphate. They have billions in confiscated funds, US weapons, US uranium, cash flow from 7 oil wells, and a bunch of enemies with no clear-cut objectives.

Now somebody better call Somebody ’cause this is getting ugly.

Did Qatar pay ransom for release of US journalist Peter Curtis?

The Telegraph: The sudden and unexplained release of the American photojournalist Peter Theo Curtis at the weekend has raised fresh questions about the role of Qatar in funding terrorism and broking the payment of multi-million dollar ransoms for western hostages held by Islamist terror groups in the Middle East. The US government and the Curtis

 No Force Now on the Ground Can Beat ISIS

The Daily Beast: “If Washington is counting on the Kurds to defeat the terrorist caliphate with a little support from American drones and warplanes, it had better think again. Back when the Obama administration was contemplating retaliation against the Syrian government for using chemical weapons, Secretary of State John Kerry sought to assuage worries that
