Despite shaking up global security, the group remains a mystery to many Americans. So who are they?
The Obama-Islamic links to Dallas
World Net Daily, by Joseph Farah, 7/10/2016
Exclusive: Joseph Farah examines allegiances, motive of black nationalist killer
I had written a column for today about the shocking incidents last week in which cops in Baton Rouge and near St. Paul, Minnesota, killed two black men – seemingly without any rational justification.
There was disturbing video of one incident and the aftermath of the other.
Like most Americans, I was appalled at what I saw.
Then came Dallas and the retributive attack on police officers, five of whom were killed and another seven wounded.
Barack Obama said there is no excuse or justification for the sniper attack.
I think he’s wrong about that. Obama himself provided plenty of excuses beyond his inclination to enflame racial strife and deter racial reconciliation.
The Secrets of Benghazi Are Back in the News
From Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, 06/18/2016 –
We took a media inquiry from a Breitbart.com reporter this week asking us about an important Obama administration Benghazi scandal document that we revealed last year.

The Obama administration has emphasized the breadth of the coalition it has assembled to combat the militant group, including the participation of five Arab countries that have played a supporting role in the campaign of airstrikes in Syria. But serious disagreements remain, particularly over the coalition’s plan for Syria and whether the fight against Islamic State militants there will strengthen or weaken Syrian ruler Bashar al-Assad in the long run.
5 Leadership Tips From A Man With A Beard
From RhinoDen, Updated: September 9, 2014 –
Due to the comments on the American (lack of) strategy for dealing with ISIS the other day, there has been a flurry of activity on the news as well as social media questioning our government’s ability to handle foreign policy and national defense responsibilities. I couldn’t help but be instantly reminded of leadership lessons that I learned while serving in the Army, and how many in our nations leadership – whether they be Congressmen, Generals, or the Executive Branch – seem to not know or just willfully ignore some or all of these fairly simple leadership tenets. I don’t know if they have time in their schedule to step away from their spa treatments, golf outings, or partisan arguments to read these five simple leadership strategies, but I hope they do. It should be noted that I am not an executive leadership strategist, life coach, or Obi Wan Kenobi – I am just a guy with a beard on his face and a coffee (black) in his hand relaying to you what I was taught once upon a time:
