I’ve been around for 57 years now, and I can’t recall a more intellectually and morally bankrupt, incompetent, pandering, shameful, embarrassing, corrupt, and willfully ignorant White House occupant, ever.

The White House is facing mounting skepticism that its high-profile summit on violent extremism this week will help to counter a rising tide of radicalism, as world leaders search for a response to another wave of attacks, in Denmark and Libya.
The summit, to be held in Washington, will draw high-level officials from more than 60 countries and will focus on how to stave off the kind of political and socio-economic exclusion that drives marginalized groups into the hands of terror groups, senior administration officials said on Monday.
……Officials also emphasized that the summit would not focus exclusively on the threats posed by one group, but would look at how communities can tackle extremism more broadly by fostering closer ties with immigrants, youth and other disaffected groups. It will draw on experience with pilot programmed in three US cities — Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis.
By the way, special guests for this pathetic charade includes muslim terrorist facilitators, Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, and operates mosques in and around Boston. Joining in on the anti-American hate fest is Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), who called Israel a “suspect” in the 9/11 attacks.
The summit is nothing less than a gathering of the very muzzie thugs involved in terrorism and their supporters in the Obama regime.

What the West really needs to take on the Islamic State is … a jobs program.
That’s what a top State Department spokeswoman suggested when asked in a TV interview Monday night about what the U.S.-led coalition is doing to stop the slaughter of civilians by Islamic State militants across the region.
“We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them. … But we cannot win this war by killing them,” department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “We need … to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether –“
……Harf continued to argue that the U.S. should work with other countries to “help improve their governance” and “help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”
She acknowledged there’s “no easy solution” and said the U.S. would still take out ISIS leaders. But Harf said: “If we can help countries work at the root causes of this — what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?”
The root cause is their centuries-old hatred of Western civilization proscribed in their koran, and the principles of freedom on which America stands. Setting up training camps for the next generation of muzzie jihadists is their business.
That takes real effort.
