ISIL IS NOT ISLAMIC? -OR- IS ISIS Really ISIL or ISISn’t It?

Strong reaction to Obama statement: ‘ISIL is not Islamic’

By Ashley Killough, CNN

(CNN) — President Barack Obama was trying to make a broader point when he uttered “ISIL is not Islamic,” but the four-word phrase could still come back to haunt him.

Critics on Twitter quickly fired off on the President for making the assertion, with many noting that ISIL in fact stands for the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” (CNN refers to the group by the acronym ISIS in its news reports. The group recently started calling itself the Islamic State).

In full context, here’s what Obama said in his prime-time speech Wednesday night:

“ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state; it was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government nor by the people it subjugates.”

“ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple, and it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

Glenn Beck Knows Why Obama Prefers ‘ISIL’ to ‘ISIS’

During his debut as moderator of Meet the Press last Sunday, Chuck Todd attempted to explain why President Barack Obama prefers to term “ISIL” over “ISIS” to describe the terrorist network that the U.S. may or may not be at war with currently.

In Todd’s view, calling the group “ISIL,” or the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, avoids the direct reference to Syria in “ISIS.” And since the Obama administration had mostly tried to keep the idea of fighting the group in Syria off the table, they wanted to keep that specific reminder out of the group’s name. With the president’s speech to the nation last week, that inclination may have shifted, but either way, at this point the administration is committed to the term “ISIL.”

But Todd is not the only commentator trying to figure out why Obama says “ISIL” while the media tends to prefer “ISIS.” Fox News’ Harris Faulkner recently said she believed the president is “tipping his hat” to the group by using an “L” instead of an “S.” “Levant is a bigger territory,” she said on Outnumbered. “That’s why they want to embrace that name and it includes many, many more countries than just Syria.”

That theory is closer to the one Glenn Beck espoused in his “daily briefing” with TheBlaze staff Monday, though, unsurprisingly, his ideas are a bit more convoluted.

Beck noticed that technically, “the Levant” includes Israel, along with Lebanon and Jordan. “We actually should be flipped,” he said. “I should be saying it’s ‘ISIL’ and the president should saying it’s ‘ISIS,’” because in Beck’s view, the president wants to minimize the threat while he believes including the Levant better represents the group’s true aims. So, does that mean Beck actually agrees with Obama on this one? Not quite.

Beck accepts that the group should be called “ISIL” and not “ISIS,” but he thinks it should be called “ISIL” as a “warning,” which is apparently not what President Obama is doing.

When Obama uses the term “ISIL,” Beck sees it as a “slap in the face” to Israel. For the president to say that it’s “ISIL” and not “ISIS” and not at the same time “double down” on Israel and warn that the group is “taking over the Holy Land” is somehow disingenuous. “There is no more Israel if it’s ISIL,” Beck declared, ominously.

“So if I’m ISIS, and I hear the president say ‘you’re really ISIL’ and ‘I’m kind of wishy-washy on that whole Israel thing,’ you’re on my side,” Beck concluded. “For him to say ‘ISIL’ is sending a message overseas to them: ‘I know who you are. I’m not doing anything, I’m not doing anything.’”

Get all that? Beck agrees that the group, which calls itself simply “the Islamic State,” should be called “ISIL,” but not for the reasons Obama is using. And somehow, escalating missile strikes against the group in Iraq and possibly now Syria is the same as “not doing anything” because he uses an “L” instead of an “S.”

The truest explanation for why President Obama says “ISIL” instead of “ISIS”? He and his team started using it at one point and have stuck with it long enough that it would be awkward (and somehow perceived as weak) if he started saying “ISIS” now.

It’s kind of like how Obama insisted on using the “Affordable Care Act” before finally giving in and accepting that everyone was going to call it “Obamacare” no matter what he did. And we’ve all seen how well that turned out.

Political Correctness

by AFVet

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Over the last six years, politically correct terms have been rammed down our throats incessantly.

The president has refused to address ISIS as the terrorist Islamic barbaric organization it is, because in his mind that may be politically incorrect.

FBI manuals have been revised to eliminate any reference to Islam.

In a response to a reporter in Wales, during a press conference, he stated that it will be very hard to ‘contain them now given the territory that they have accumulated’.

This from a president that was given information one year ago that ISIS was on the march.

So, instead of stopping them from invading Iraq, he dithered.

Thousands of innocent people have been killed in very revolting manners by primitive Islamic barbarians that we had the capability to stop.

Thousands have escaped only to become refugees.

They have no Air Force or Navy,…just ground based weapons that could have been destroyed early on in their campaign to establish an Islamic caliphate and kill anyone that refuses to accept Sharia law and it’s tenants.

It is a shame that we have been harnessed with a president that is incapable of making decisions in a timely manner.

A president that was elected by people that had no idea of whom they were electing and for the most part didn’t really care.

A president that does not have the experience to surround himself with advisers that see what is coming on the horizon, instead they have the tendency to use endless chatter against people that are more than happy to die for Allah.

Perhaps this is God’s way of giving US a slap on the hand, but, in the next two years, this United States of America will face one of the greatest tests we have ever faced.

Have faith America, we outnumber them and we need to show them that in November.

America’s Future…by AFVet

''

OK,…so we are a few months from the 2014 mid-term elections.

Hopefully, the conservatives will achieve the majority in the Senate and dispense with the monarchy of Harry Reid.

What then ?

What will the House look like if John Boehner is still the speaker ?

If Mitch McConnell becomes the majority leader,  what have we gained ?

Now let’s switch over to the Executive Branch of the government that the Founders gave us.

How does a conservative win in the 2014 election change the attitude of the president ?

It doesn’t.

His administration has deep roots into just about any agency that was ever devised to regulate this Country and the people that reside here.

At this point,…no stone has been left unturned.

They have packed the Federal Court system with liberal judges.
The gay marriage issue is constantly forefront and in the news even though the people have declared that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Liberals never give up.

100 years of efforts to destroy the principles of this Country, and finally, the Tea Party Movement stands up and says NO MORE !

The result was one of the government agencies, the IRS, targeted ANY conservative or Christian organization that wanted to achieve a status to be able to influence the election process.

I guess if you aren’t a liberal, you do not have a voice, or you are under suspicion.

The First Amendment rights of these groups were denied intentionally by the Obama administration, and yet to date they are still getting away with the stonewalling and the misinformation promulgated on the MSM.

Obama and his administration is extremely powerful, and it is going to take a major effort to just get this Country back close to being on track.

The bottom line for me is this.

Don’t listen to the rhetoric being spewed by the left wing liberals, they are speaking to people that have not spent the time to educate themselves as to what common sense tells all of us.

The Siren Song of the liberals will always ring loudly to those who have lost the desire to achieve their future on their own.

The only thing missing there is PRIDE !

Obama’s ‘Keystone Cop’ Administration has got to Go!

keystone cop

By now I am sure that just about every American is fed up with the Key Stone Cops we elected to represent us in Washington.  Over the last ten or fifteen years we have watched our political leaders play out their greedy games and childish attacks on one another all the while ignoring the wants and needs of their constituents.  We have watched them in their march to grab as much power as they can from We the People all the while lining their pockets with the fruits of our labor.

I say Enough is Enough already because the time has come for us to put into power a 3rd Party that will insure our constitutional rights and put an end to the stalemate we have been seeing in our nations capitol.

The time has come and is long overdo for the Tea Party to pull itself up by its Grass Roots and become a real contender in our nations political arena.

America’s Fading Glory

picture-of-american-eagle-and-flag-4

As many of you know I came very close to shutting down this Voting American Blog.  Had it not been for the encouragement of my Patriot Friends across the internet Voting American would have faded into the abyss of Apathy.

It is incredibly disheartening to watch as this once great country succumbs to the will of those who would ‘Fundamentally Transform’ her into a Socialist Government dependency State. A place where the ‘Land of the Free’ would become the land of the Government Slave.

I spent a great deal of time over the past few days scouring over some of the over 800 articles here at Voting American and came across this eye opening commentary submitted by Loopyloo on February 10, 2012:

058c27cf4d9faa50502289fcde18322fGovernment intimidation is getting stronger everyday. The bullying is outrageous and the implication that those who speak up for their country and their faith are somehow anti-American or wish for the destruction of the country is so far from the truth, that if it weren’t being said by those who do wish to destroy the country, it would be hard to believe. But that is a tactic of those who follow the Alinsky path. Accuse others of doing what you are doing in order to divert attention from your own actions.

God bless and watch over all those willing to stand and speak up for this country. God bless all those who want to restore the principles that this country was founded on. God bless all those who understand the Christian foundations that our Constitution was established on. God bless those who understand the freedoms we have and the cost of those who have fought and died to save them. God bless everyone who is willing to stand for what is right. If we do not stand now, we may never have the opportunity again, and we will have given away this country to those who hate her.

God bless American and may she remain standing as the greatest country on the face of the earth.

After reading that commentary from Loopyloo and reading all the words of encouragement coming from my Patriot Friends I could no longer even consider the option of shutting down this Voting American site.

The End of the Road for Voting American Blogs

GoodbyeStuff-iStock

Sorry to say this but the End of the Road has come for this Voting American Blog. 

Together we have accomplished great things in getting the word out to a Dumbed down American society but in the end it was Apathy that brought me to this point of no return.

In my lifetime I have never seen America in more dire straights than she is in right now and yet so many have fallen by the way side and abandoned the American Dream.

For those of you who stood by this blog to the end I say Thank you and hope you will understand my pursuing other avenues of fighting for our common Freedoms.

I will not soon forget any of you and I wish each and everyone of you well.

May God Richly Bless you and your families.

Draft Sarah Palin for President in 2016

sarah-palin-ronald-reagan-470x434Of all the Presidential Candidates seeking a 2016 run for the Presidency I can think of no one more qualified and Patriotic to lead this country out of the darkness of its current Socialistic state.

Sarah Palin has stood the test of time and is the real deal for all things Conservative in these United States.

It is my hope that the Tea Party will draft Sarah Palin for a Presidential run. The time has come to upset the apple cart and I can think of no one better qualified and equipped to defeat the Socialist/Marxists that will surely come out of the Democrat Party. 

Draft Sarah Palin for President in 2016!
