There was some indication yesterday that Al Qaeda and I.S.I.S. have become blood enemies and are fighting each other for control of the Jihadist movement. Islamic militants who poured into the embattled nation to help the Free Syrian Army in its bid to topple Dictator Bashar Assad are now fighting Assad, the rebels and each other in a barbaric free-for-all. At the center is the split between Al Qaeda’s regional affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra, and the newly emerged Islamic State, which are fighting each other on the battlefield and in the war for recruits to the cause of Islamic terrorism, according to FOX NEWS.
Once again, one is tempted to leave well-enough-alone and let them battle with each other; we can deal with the victor later. That’s not a viable strategy because they are both still intent on bringing the U.S. to its collective knees. And, another anniversary of 9/11 is just around the corner. More and more it becomes apparent that OUR strategy as citizens needs to be to kick the Democrats out of the Senate and the House in November and to proceed to impeach Obama for his numerous and egregious violations of his duties under the Constitution. Even Joe Biden will be better than this chowderhead.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. I understand the “thought police” have the government establishing an agency to pursue misinformation on Twitter and to rein the culprits in. Isn’t that a violation of the free speech amendment? (Carlos ~ Milpitas, CA)
A. Not if you are an Obamacrat. There are no rules for Obama or his minions; everything is up for grabs. The President now has the power to bar you from the Internet, you know; could you get along without Facebook?
Q. Paul Ryan says he and his fellow Republicans are not going to let the I.R.S. scandal go away. What do you think? (Vickie ~ Barstow, CA)
A. What about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the N.S.A., the V.A., the D.O.J.? Obama has consistently out-maneuvered the House and the Republican Party and has never been held accountable for his actions. Unless something changes in the halls of Congress, what makes Ryan think he’s going to get answers and justice on the I.R.S. misdeeds? Is everybody in Washington on weed?
Q. Why is Jimmy Carter speaking at a fundraiser for Hamas? (Eugene ~ Ogden, UT)
A. Because Obama has a golf date. Neither one of them has any love for Israel. Yet, these anti-Semitics have no qualms about calling the rest of us racists.

The Environmental Protection Agency has created a secret set of maps of U.S. waterways and bodies of water on both public and private lands for the purpose of targeting a massive power-grab over those waters. "These maps show the EPA's plan: to control a huge amount of private property across the country. Given the astonishing picture they paint, I understand the EPA's desire to minimize the importance of these maps," according to Representative Lamar Smith.
I’m not being facetious when I say this; I believe what I am about to suggest is, in fact, probable. Here’s an opportunity for another government agency to target Obama’s political enemies and they may be cahoots with the D.O.J. and the I.R.S. Can’t you visualize being a conservative at home, soaking in the tub, when the E.P.A. task force shows up wearing full-body armor and in SUV's while carrying grease guns, invades your home and hauls you off for water pollution? That may sound absurd, but do you think it’s really impossible with this regime in power?
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. This lady who keeps getting onto flights without a ticket… Why isn’t she in jail? (Grace ~ Tucson, AZ)
A. If the President can do illegal things and get away with them, why shouldn't she be able to do the same? Now, if it’s really such a big crime, ask yourself how is she getting through preflight security… the toughest flight security since 9/11?
Q. Does Obama need Congressional approval before going after I.S.I.S. in Syria? (Natalia ~ Rancho Santa Fe, CA)
A. Absolutely. Congress was required to approve our foray into Libya, but he ignored them. As a matter of fact, he pretty much does as he wants and doesn’t give a damn whether anybody likes it or not.
Q. What do you make of the Chinese jet fighter messing around with our planes and flying into Taiwanese airspace? (Chaz ~ Beverly Hills, CA)
A. I doubt they’re trying to get up a game of Chinese checkers. It’s probably more of a test to see just how far Obama can be pushed before he draws another red line.

After it became known that Lois Lerner was an instrumental figure in the IRS targeting scandal and after she resigned while Congress was subpoenaing everything and anything regarding the scandal, the IRS took the IRS issued cellphone used by Lerner and wiped it clean.
In all probability, the same Obama team that erased or locked up all of his birth records, immigration documents, college transcripts, social security information and dog license history has been out there in force over recent months erasing all traces of Lerner emails. I’m reasonably sure that her personally-owned PC has also crashed. Of course, no one is mentioning the multi-billion-dollar NSA facility in Utah that records everything.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. I see your position is that we cannot legally go after I.S.I.S. in Syrian if Assad doesn’t give us permission. What do we do if he refuses? (Carol ~ Arlington, TX)
A. Nuke Assad.
Q. The federal government is warning that any action against I.S.I.S. could result in retaliatory attacks from U.S. based terrorist cells. How did they get here in the first place? (Lynette ~ Edmonds, WA)
A. They walked across the Mexican border or they are U.S. citizens who became radicalized Muslims. WE… I repeat, you and I and our friends, relatives and neighbors allowed it to happen because WE have not been demanding responsibility in our government. That’s a fact. And right now, they’re growing like toadstools in a manure patch.
Q. What do you make of the report that the State Department is using our taxpayer dollars to purchase Obama-written books? (Quint ~ Santa Maria, CA)
A. Come on, Obama is just trying to raise enough money to cover his green fees. Have reasonable expectations: most liars are crooks as well.

According to a late news development yesterday from FOX NEWS, Tom Fitton who is the president of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch says that Justice Department attorneys have intimated that Lois Lerner's "lost" emails likely exist in back-up computers. Fitton said DOJ attorneys told him the federal government backs up all computer records to ensure the continuity of government in event of a catastrophe. Further, "Somebody in Lois Lerner's position has an executive assistant who has access to her email just as though she did," said Morgan Wright, a computer forensics expert. "So whatever email comes into Lois Lerner’s box goes into her administrator’s box as well.”
The Administration and the I.R.S. continue to insist that no such backup system existed in the Lerner email case. They are fumbling for an answer as to the executive assistant postulation. It appears to me and all of us that someone very high up is lying. And just who is it who has the all-time record for telling lies in Washington? Would we let John Gotti get away with such lies?
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. What do you make of Syria’s demand that we get permission before bombing any I.S.I.S. sites in that country? (Ivy ~ Provo, UT)
A. Syria is totally within its rights as a sovereign nation to insist on that. If they were to deny such permission and we were to do it anyway, that would justifiably be an act of war on our part. Besides, I would recommend against jumping into bed with Assad against I.S.I.S. Those who get into bed with snakes are likely to get bit. Anyone who doesn’t believe Assad is a snake hasn’t been paying attention to his rattle. And all of that considered, Obama says he's authorizing drone strikes in Syria. I sometimes think he invented the words "dumb idea."
Q. I am appalled that the White House sent so many dignitaries to Brown’s funeral. I don’t think they had that many delegates at Chris Stephens 'funeral and, as I understand it, they didn’t have that many delegates at Thatcher’s funeral. (Marlin ~ Lancaster, CA)
A. Neither Stephens nor Thatcher was Black. That is plain speaking, from atop the mountain.
Q. Chicago’s murder rate has hit a 56-year low as concealed carry permits become the norm. How can the anti-gunners ignore the facts? (Danny ~ Bend, OR)
A. Because the facts do not fit their agenda. Their agenda consists of disarming America, even when we’re faced with the threats of terrorism and runaway government. We must always be vigilant and soundly stop any attempt to strip us of our Constitutional rights and believe me, our government is full of strippers.

The next natural step is to require a certain percentage of college students to become doctors; the government will begin choosing your vocations for you.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Did you feel the Napa earthquake in Burney? (Willie ~ Santa Rosa, CA)
A. No. But, waking up to those pictures of broken wine and liquor bottles strewn around scared the hell out of me; all of that good booze going to waste… such a shame. It’s an alcoholic’s worst nightmare.
Q. We haven’t heard much about the Keystone Pipeline lately. What’s up? (Jeff ~ Bangor, ME)
A. Not much, except the price of gas. We continue to put ourselves at energy risk by refusing to expand our capacity. We need a couple of new and sophisticated refineries and have had that need for years. Even if we get more oil out of the ground, we have to be able to refine it. Due to the lack of capacity, oil companies are taking gas rigs out of production. Obama is doing everything he can to stall and my thinking is that he will veto it as soon as the November elections are over… presuming he’s still in office.
Q. The Obama Administration has seized half-a-million acres of land in New Mexico by declaring it to be a national monument. Once again, this puts the BLM and NPS against the ranchers who have been grazing livestock on those lands for decades. What’s your opinion? (Ken ~ Roswell, NM)
A. We need to investigate to see if Harry Reid’s son has a deal with the Chinese to lease some of that land to them for solar production. I don’t think any lands should be withdrawn from public use without the consent of the American public. It is our land, not the government’s. The next thing you know, they’ll be naming it the “Barack Hussein Obama National Memorial Park” and they’ll be erecting a huge statue of him leading the country with his 9-iron.

Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe has warned that Islamic State extremists are attempting to develop a weapon to blow up a major city in the United States. "They're crazy out there, and they're rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can't believe that's happening," he said.
Between the Pakistani nukes, North Korea and Iran, the odds are chillingly in their favor. And they are a “Junior Varsity” organization? Thank God we've got a strong southern border.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Secretary of Defense Hagel says I.S.I.S. is far more dangerous that Al Qaeda was before 9/11. What are we going to do about that? (Dick ~ Sebastopol, CA)
A. I’ll let you know after I sink this putt.
Q. Just what is so wrong about having the F.B.I. go after the terrorist who beheaded Foley? (Sabrina ~ Las Vegas, NV)
A. Even if, in the wildest imagination of Eric Holder, we were able get agents into Iraq, identify, find the culprit, arrest him or her and extract that person successfully without losing the agents’ heads… we would have accomplished nothing toward the imperative objective of neutralizing the I.S.I.S. movement. Who is kidding who? The idea is somewhat akin to sending a Chihuahua to a dog fight. War is war and very different than crime.
Q. What government agencies are armed? (Kevin ~ Sacramento, CA)
A. Virtually all of them, with the exception of the Library of Congress which just turned its arsenal in. The I.R.S., by the way, can’t locate Lerner’s emails but can readily find its assault rifles. You would think that if any agency was going into a touchy situation, they’d have the Secret Service, F.B.I. or U.S. Marshall’s with them. So why do they need all of these guns, especially when Obama is so adamantly against them? It’s called intimidation, oppression and "up yours."
