Barky’s “JV Team” Defeated in Raqqa

Via Fox News 

The spokesman for U.S.-backed forces fighting Islamic State militants in Syria says the fighters are removing land mines and clearing main roads in the city of Raqqa, a day after they announced it was captured.

Mustafa Bali, the Syrian Democratic Forces spokesman, says preparations are also underway on Wednesday for a formal declaration of the liberation.

SDF announced on Tuesday that their troops have taken full control of the city, once the heart of IS’ self-styled caliphate.

Brett McGurk, the top U.S. envoy for the coalition battling the Islamic State group, is in northern Syria. He posted a photograph of surrendering IS militants, saying: “once purported as fierce, now pathetic and a lost cause.”

McGurk says the United States will help in clearing explosives and restoring services in the city.

 

In 2014, Obama dismissed ISIS a ‘JV Team‘ while they butchered their way through Iraq and Syria.  All they needed was jobs, hugs, and Obamacare and everything would be fine.

Well, thanks to Barkythey achieved Varsity status.    All of the accomplishments and sacrifices we made to help Iraq transition to a representative democracy, were flushed.  But he was never really enthusiastic about the war against terrorism,  anyway.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis has implemented new ROE that U.S. forces are no longer bound by requirements to be in contact with enemy forces before opening fire.  Hopefully, that will be the case wherever we are deployed.

SCOTUS Rejects Challenge to President Trump’s Travel Ban

Via RT.com

The challenge still before the Supreme Court comes out of Hawaii and deals with the revised travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries as well as a separate ban on refugees.

The refugee ban is not set to expire until October 24.

The high court ruled Tuesday that because the provision in question expired by its own terms on September 24, the appeal “no longer presents a ‘live case or controversy.’” They vacated the case, which will be remanded to the Fourth Circuit with instructions to dismiss as moot the challenge to the March 6 executive order.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only dissenting opinion in the Tuesday decision. Sotomayor agreed that the Supreme Court should not hear the case, but argued that the ruling from the Fourth Circuit should have been kept in place.

The previous order was challenged by Hawaii as “an unconstitutional effort by the President to fulfill his campaign promise to enact a Muslim ban.”

……The court was due to hear arguments against the travel ban on Tuesday. However, in September the justices ordered challenges to the March 6 executive order to be removed from the oral argument calendar. The justices directed the parties to file briefs addressing whether the challenges are no longer an actual dispute.

On September 24, the same day that part of the March 6 order expired, Trump issued a third version of the executive order, restricting travel to the US from eight countries: Somalia, Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, North Korea, Venezuela and Chad.

Of course, the American Communist Liberties Union is not pleased.

 

Contrary to the ACLU’s liberal hissy fit, Trump’s actions are backed by the Constitution, and BTW, the SCOTUS dismissed the decisions by the lower courts.  That means the SCOTUS says they’re wrong.

The U.S. has the right to control who enters the country. There is no Constitutional or legal right for a foreigner to enter the U.S.  It’s a privilege. Every country has immigration laws, travel laws, and borders.  Obama, the most corrupt shitbag ever to occupy the Oval Office, thumbed his nose at the laws for 8 years and the libtards thought Trump would never follow through on his campaign promises.

Surprise.

Federal immigration law: Title 8 U.S. Code section 1182 (f):

“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate” .

This is precisely what President Trump has done.  Allowing hostile Islamic vermin into the country from a region of the world that supports, indoctrinates, funds, and breeds Islamofascist terrorism is suicidal.

 

 

The Last Words of the Ambassador Hillary and Obama Left to Die in Benghazi

Via The Daily Wire

Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans – U.S. State Department staffer Sean Smith and Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – were murdered during a 13-hour terror attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that started on the night of September 11, 2012.

On Monday, giving testimony in Washington against terrorist Ahmed Abu Khattala, who’s accused of orchestrating the attack on the consulate, Diplomatic Security Special Agent Scott Wickland, the ambassador’s bodyguard, revealed Stevens’ harrowing last words:

“When I die, you need to pick up my gun and keep fighting,” Stevens told Wickland.

Independent Journal Review reports on Wickland’s testimony:

“In his testimony, Wickland admitted he didn’t know if he was going to survive the attack. He also described the heartbreaking moment he lost Stevens and U.S. State Department staffer Sean Smith.

Wickland said he saw Stevens and Smith crawling behind him as they searched for a bedroom with a window to escape out of. When he exited the window, he was alone.

Vomiting from the smoke and taking fire, Wickland climbed out of the room and pulled the ladder up.

“That’s when I knew [Stevens and Smith] were dead,” Wickland recalled.”

……According to an 800-page report released from the House Benghazi Committee, Clinton’s State Department refused or ignored repeated requests for increased security on the compound, which they knew was undermanned.

 

Obama denied outright an urgent request to send more security to the embassy. He lied about what he knew, and his flying monkeys tried to squelch Fox News investigative reporting surrounding the attack.

The intelligence community identified the terrorists within 24 hours. Two days after the attack, Hillary Clinton  had a meltdown at a Congressman over the point that it was indeed Al Qaeda.

Here’s a link to a video of Fox News reporter Bret Baier reading (at about 06:45 into the video) the emails from Ambassador Stevens to the State Department, one of which is just 4 hours prior to the attack. Each one was a desperate plea for more security in the face of growing terrorist violence in the area.

Obama and Hillary couldn’t have cared less from the first sign of trouble to the horrible aftermath.

Bottom line: Obama and Hillary’s depraved indifference and incompetence, played a large part in the deaths of the Americans at the Benghazi consulate.

Finally: Mattis Orders New Rules of Engagement

Thank God. Barky’s ROE was so dicked up it cost the lives of troops on the ground. Hopefully, the mission will be to kill the enemy and not worry about ‘hurt feelings’.

From Defense News

U.S. forces are no longer bound by requirements to be in contact with enemy forces in Afghanistan before opening fire, thanks to a change in rules of engagement orchestrated by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

Mattis, appearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday alongside Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford told a pair of congressional hearings that the White House gave him a free hand to reconsider the rules of engagement and alter them to speed the battle against the Taliban if need be.

Over the last several years, many top officials in Washington have advocated for a loosening of the rules of engagement that dictate how troops conduct combat operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

Changes could allow the U.S. military to move more quickly to defeat terrorist organizations. Rules of engagement are classified, and military officials generally do not discuss them.

However, there were signs that changes to those rules of engagement were coming. In his Aug. 21 speech announcing his Afghianstan strategy, President Donald Trump said he would ”lift restrictions and expand authorities” for warfighters.

”We will also expand authorities for American armed forces to target the terrorists and criminal networks that sow violence and chaos throughout Afghanistan,” Trump said at the time.

Mattis has taken that freedom and implemented at least two changes: The removal of proximity requirements for strikes against Taliban forces, and the spreading out of U.S. and allied advisors to lower-level Afghan units.

……“We are no longer bound by the need for proximity to our forces,” Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee in the afternoon. “It used to be we have to basically be in contact with that enemy.”

“If they are in an assembly area, a training camp, we know they are an enemy and they are going to threaten the Afghan government or our people, [Gen. John Nicholson, commander of U.S. Forces Afghanistan] has the wherewithal to make that decision,” he added.

“Wherever we find them, anyone who is trying to throw the NATO plan off, trying to attack the Afghan government, then we can go after them,” Mattis said.

 

Barky ran the war with  pussified doctrine, and portrayed the enemy as less of an enemy. Why, the Taliban even got a nice office in Doha.

We now have a President who actually takes the GWOT seriously and allows the military leaders to do their jobs.

Steven Crowder Infiltrates, Tracks Antifa Terrorists, Exposes Their Violent Tactics, Media Complicity

From Louder with Crowder

Watch as the antifa thugs plan violence against conservatives and bring weapons to attack them, as the liberal media turns the other way.

 

 

Antifa is a Soros-backedviolent domestic terrorist group that attacked peaceful rightwing protesters in Berkeley and Charlottesville.  Media like CNN loves them.
