Obama admin says “file footage of ISIL convoys operating in broad daylight” is “inaccurate” days before huge ISIL convoy in Ramadi

Either the Obama administration is woefully ignorant of the facts on the ground, or it’s lying brazenly to the American people and the world, knowing that most people are too busy or indifferent to notice. Either way, it’s unconscionable. “Stop using ISIL footage, Obama administration asks networks,” by Michael Crowley and Hadas Gold, Politico, May 13, 2015:

Frustrated that coverage of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant isn’t reflecting reality on the ground, senior Obama administration officials are urging television networks to update their footage of the radical militant group.

Senior State Department and Pentagon officials have begun contacting television network reporters to ask them to stop using “B-roll” — stock footage that appears on screen while reporters and commentators talk — showing ISIL at the peak of its strength last summer.

“We are urging broadcasters to avoid using the familiar B-roll that we’ve all seen before, file footage of ISIL convoys operating in broad daylight, moving in large formations with guns out, looking to wreak havoc,” said Emily Horne, spokeswoman for retired Gen. John Allen, the State Department’s special envoy leading the international coalition against ISIL.

“It’s inaccurate — that’s no longer how ISIL moves,” Horne said. “A lot of that footage is from last summer before we began tactical strikes.”…

A more accurate image, said Col. Steven Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, would be “one Toyota speeding down the road by itself at night with its headlights off.”

Is that so? Here are some photos from the Islamic State’s celebration of the fall of Ramadi:Ramadi5

A picture is worth more than 10,000 lies told by this administration.

Dictator Obama's friends. Of course he would lie. 

the liars don't want the truth told so they either buy or intimidate the media to support them!!!!!!!!!!

There is no reason to believe one thing this White House or Obama has to say.  Or anyone working for Obama.  I am always amazed how they follow and obey like good dogs.  Does no one have any morals or pride any more.

Where did these other photos come from? They weren't in the Politico article. 

I imagine that the lapdog press will do everything Obama wants. They will probable show a toyota speeding with its lights off!'

So much the better to create Obama's propaganda that ISIS is not a big deal...

More lies from this administration, pictures do tell the truth

The minute this Administration came out with that I knew it was true. LIPS MOVING = LIE

Typical progressive-communist logic.  Destroy the evidence and the problem "disappears".  How has that worked lately?  If it wasn't for the success of the Tea Party movement, the Republicans would be in lockstep with him.

Everyone here comments about Odumbo in the WH but NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING.  Words do not work, Americans have become so complacent, all they care about is themselves.  I care about myself, my family and fellow Americans and most important in order to survive the ideology of Odumbo I have to care more about the fate of this COUNTRY!!!!!!  Where do the rest of you stand???

why does the Admin remain calling them ISIL while everyone else knows them by ISIS?

If he thinks that Americans are believing him, he is mistaken. Many people who voted for the fool realize they made a VERY BIG MISTAKE. I do not believe one thing out of his mouth or anyone that works for him and who has drank the kool aid.

No one in his administration will ever say anything negative about their messiah. I think there have been too many people dropped on their heads as babies.

UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!

OK big mouth, show some bombing of the ISIS forces massing for attacks on major targets, rather than the trivial videos of bomb hitting empty buildings and one or two enemy troops.  Never have we seen any footage of large groups of ISIS troops and equipment, yet they do bring their forces and successfully overpower Iraqi held territory.

Obama is a sham on every issue.  His actions are a mirage, a PR action, only.  That is why all his "advisers" are former PR people!

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
