“We analyze ISIL in three dimensions,” he told the panel. “The core in Iraq and Syria; the networks that feed its strength — foreign fighter networks, propaganda networks and financial networks; and the global affiliates … eight in all, that seek to expand its reach, with Libya and Sinai being the most significant.”
McGurk said that of the indicators used to track ISIL — morale, territory, combat-ready fighters, access to revenue, access to borders, capable and confident leadership, social media and global branches — many are trending in the right direction.http://www.defense.gov/News-Article-View/Article/821436/presidential-envoy-reports-counter-isil-progress-ongoing-terrorism-threat

Obamacare is more proof that central planning fails

Even the Kaiser Foundation, which has supported Obamacare, has admitted that the flood of red ink has become a major issue. “I don’t know if we’re at a point where it’s completely worrisome,” spokesperson Cynthia Cox told NPR, “but I think it does raise some red flags in pointing out that insurance companies need to be able to make a profit or at least cover their costs.”
Red flags have flown all over the Obamacare model for six years. Instead of suing the federal government for losses created by a system for which they bear more than a little responsibility, insurers should finally admit out loud that the ACA is anything but affordable – not for insurers, and certainly not for consumers or taxpayers. When that finally happens, we can then start working on a viable solution based on reality rather than fealty to a failed central-planning policy.http://personalliberty.com/obamacare-proof-central-planning-fails/

The Tactical Hermit

I find it HILARIOUS that obamaoids have been jumping up and down throwing tantrums over wanting to impose another Assault Weapons Ban and yet one of the guns used in the Paris Attacks (An AK Assault Rifle) was put into circulation by the ATF in the Fast and Furious goat rodeo debacle. Going a bit further with this, how about the recent story about CIA Weapons meant for “American Backed Syrian Rebels” (All 100 of them) ending up on the Jordanian Black Market (ie in Jihadist Hands) coincidence? Well if you follow the letter of the law here, it takes 2 people to be involved in the planning of a crime to have a “Conspiracy”, here we have two clear cut examples of MASSIVE Govt. involvement in illegal arms dealing. I think the burden of proof has been met to at minimum file Conspiracy charges, against the US Government, namely…
