Hey, don’t worry guys. Team Obama has a strategy to once a for all defeat ISIS, but it doesn’t involve killing them, no siree. The U.S. will defeat ISIS with … wait for it … jobs!

For real. And here’s State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf making that argument to Chris Matthews last night. Transcript via Power Line:

We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether…

Matthews, to his credit, quickly shot her down:

We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?

Here’s video of the exchange:

And check out this awesome mockalanche from some of our favorite conservative Tweeters taking Ms. Harf to task over her happy hope-and-change rhetoric:

    That’s the sad tired prog ideology- poverty causes terrorism. No it doesn’t power vacuums cause terrorism.

    • Jake Wilde

      The International Relations courses taught in college teach global cooperation for liberals and close-mindedness of Realists. I tell you it all made me hurl how bad they have redefined everything…..I mean everything.

      • Lucius Cornelius

        How many at high levels at WH or State have read Machiavelli (The Discourses, not The Prince), Montesquieu, Thucydides, or Hobbes?

        And yet they are convinced they’ve got it right. It’s frightening how wrong they are about how the world works.

        • Jake Wilde

          I know Lucius. I argue it daily with some very rabid New Liberals. They have no idea Machiavelli wrote The Discourses on Titus Levy. They leave it at Rousseau ignoring Kant and the rest.

        • Maryland_Malcontent

          It wouldn’t surprise me that they’ve “read Hobbes” as they are The Leviathan.

    • Protus Mose

      “Poverty” doesn’t cause terrorism, but it does serve as a catalyst. You make someone feel like a victim, them you give them someone to blame. See: “You guys, we’re Germans! We’re awesome! This mess we’re in can’t be our fault for failed economic policies and backing the wrong horse in the war! Blame the Jews!” Decades later: “It’s not your fault you live in this shitpile…. blame the infidels! Kill them and you get paradise!”

      That said, yes, she’s an idiot. You could open dozens of factories and give everyone jobs and you’re not going to close Pandora’s box at this point.

    Ms. Harf proves that there are limitless possibilities for 17 year old (in mental acuity) Valley Girls in the current administration. Typically, I prefer to use wit and razor sharp sarcasm to refute an asinine comment like Ms. Harf made. However, I will confess the thought of dotting her eye is quite delightful.

        In another thread, far, far, away, but talking about people like Harfy…

        No Aggie Joakes!

        Three engineers — one from Caltech, one from MIT, and one from Texas A&M — were having a friendly discussion in a bar when the subject turned to great inventions. The MIT grad opined that the greatest invention of all time was fire. “Fire transformed the world!

        It gave us light at night, it kept us warm in the cold, and it let us cook food, and smelt metals, and power engines … Yes, fire has to be the greatest invention in history.”

        “I respectfully disagree,” the Caltech man said. “The greatest invention in history is the one that made history itself possible: writing. Writing let us record our very thoughts and transmit them through space and time, down the generations. It made civilization possible. Hard-won knowledge need never be lost — in a sense, writing enabled us to transcend death itself!”

        “No …” the Aggie said thoughtfully, “I think the greatest invention of all time would have to be the Thermos.”

        “The Thermos?!” the others exclaimed.

        “Well, sure!” said the Aggie. “Look — it keeps hot things hot and it keeps cold things cold. … How does it know?!

    Leftists, Liberals, and American Democrats are so ignorant, and bigoted. Seems like they suffer from Stockholm Syndrome and Islamophobia. In Fact, one Obama campaign staffer called Megan Kelly “hysterical.” He called all Americans who care about defeating ISIS hysterical. I guess, the irony of hgis statements were lost on him.

    Um, yes we can, Marie. We NEED to kill as many of these death-worshipers as possible, until there are no more of them, or until they determine that living as civilized human beings is preferable to continued war.

    That is EXACTLY what we need to do, and exactly what we did in World War II. We need to kill them and kill them and kill them some more until they either enter the twenty-first century with the rest of us, or until they are extinct.

  • douglasmarks

    For reasons why the Untied States is losing the fight with ISIS, one need look no further than the State Department Sorority Girls, Marie Harf and Jen Psaki. Marie Harf was on Hardball with Chris Matthews last night because Jen had a makeup exam at college yesterday. The spot with Harf highlights where the administration’s head is at with regard to “fighting” and “degrading” ISIS.

    While ISIS proudly flaunts each new batch of outrageous barbaric acts for the world to see, Harf explained what is really needed in the struggle against evil: “We cannot win this war by killing them. The shortage of job opportunities in the region is really the root cause for their acts of violence and savagery.” I know, my head nearly exploded too.

    For an administration that vilifies capitalism, they now seem ready to carpet bomb the Middle East with convenience stores, Taco Bells, Super 8 Motels, and McDonald’s and flood the region with $15/hr. minimum wage jobs. Maybe they’re thinking the fighters will be so busy making a “run for the border” they’ll become too dehydrated to fight? Won’t they just create all the terrible problems they detest in this country like income inequality if they pursue this plan?

    I have to admit, I for one am sick and tired of seeing the constant parade of ISIS videos with the fighters holding up signs saying “Will Stop Beheading For Food.” Aren’t you? This reminds me of World War II when we tried to blanket Germany with White Castle hamburger joints. All that did was keep the German soldiers well fed and we still had to storm the beaches of Normandy. Fortunately, our boys were able to hit the 7-11’s on the beach so they could grab some beef jerky and a Slurpee before making their final push into Germany.

    Being well versed in the Koran, Harf has clearly studied the book enough to know it teaches that if the unemployment rate hits above 7% then, and only then, are all working age males instructed to turn to Islam and jihad as a last resort. Once again, it appears capitalism is the answer. Why they don’t understand that it works in this country too is beyond me. But then I’m not nearly as smart as Harf and her fancy librarian glasses. E.

    Won’t be long before we start hearing Obama and his minions say-

    “ISIL is not a terrorist group. ISIL is simply a head-hunting firm
    seeking to recruit the best people for the job by cutting back the
    competition. As an American who believes in entrepreneurship I fully
    support and admire their initiative in firing up support for their
    economic plan and how they are creating new shovel-ready jobs.”

  • Russ

    The argument falls flat. A lot of the 9/11 terrorists were well educated, but what they wanted was a faster way to get their 72 virgins. Here’s hoping they all looked like Pelosi or Hillary.

    My other half and I were just discussing how, if Harf weren’t fired by the next administration, and, say, Walker won, she’d flip her rhetoric 180 degrees in a nanosecond. It’s speculation, but I really doubt she’d see anything wrong with doing that.

    • wavetheshales

      Yeah. 72 virgin Camels…

  • NotBuyingItEvenForADollar

    “Will work for 72 virgins”

  • Psalmon

    For all you women who are itching to vote for “what difference does it make” Hillary, hopefully you realize it’s YOU these fanatics want in burkahs, it’s your sons they want murdered, and your daughters they want to sell as sex slaves.

    Because Harf doesn’t have a clue the ISIS guys have her on some gang-rape-followed-by-crucifixion list over there.

  • Ruy Diaz

    “What makes these 17 yr old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business?”

    Picking up the AK-47 is:

    a) A lot less work.
    b) A lot more fun.

    The explanation is needed for the opposite: how come SOME 17-year-olds, in SOME societies start a business instead of joining a gang, or ISIS?

  • CobraJet428

    Marie Harf on ISIS: “We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

    The problem is: It’s probably a plank in Hillary’s campaign.

    • Russ

      It wasn’t that long ago that Hillary stated that these terrorists need our compassion, so maybe she hopes being nicer to them is enough. It worked for Neville Chamberlain. Oh, wait.

      • CobraJet428

        How screwed up is HRC’s world-view?
        This screwed up:

        Hillary Clinton on Boko Haram, 2012:
        “Similar to the United States, Nigeria’s religious diversity is a source of strength, with communities working across religious lines to protect one another.”

  • NotBuyingItEvenForADollar

    Wasn’t that tried in Ohio? /s

  • tonethebone

    The competence level of these spokespeople are at the level of sheep. Not one original word comes from their mouths, and they are the shields that protect the other higher up fools from actually having to speak to the American people. You know what is really sad, is the fact that some folks buy into this BS, and think this girl is actually smart, which is crazy. They say lies and stupid crap everyday, and I cringe just hearing this.

    Sigh. I am sure that the goal here must have to do with boring the bad guys to death (or something even dumber than that)….hey, here’s an idea, how about we push Harf out of a C-130 over Kobani, so she can start her new ‘Use your head’ jobs program. Sorry, but this woman simply insults the intelligence of a box of rocks…….

  • News Reporter

    It appears the Democrats have a plan to mass migrate Muslim terrorists into the United States and relocate them to all 50 states.. to employ them. Much like they did with the Central American criminal illegal aliens and their parents.

    More evidence (not that it was needed) that modern liberalism is akin to severe and incurable mental retardation. None of these leftists have the slightest clue how to solve any real-world problems. All they’ve ever done–and all that they’ll ever do–is create bigger problems with their thoroughly evil, childish ideology.

    Awesome idea. Just one quick question, ’cause I can never remember: which came first, V-E Day or the Marshall Plan?

    Anybody with a functioning brain cell would have felt that they were being punked. Not Harf. ‘Nuff said.

  • VAKAT

    So first we apologize, then we treat them with respect, then we build their economy and give them jobs. THEN they will stop being terrorists…. (bangs head against wall, repeatedly)

    I would be interested to hear one of the drooling msm er… wh press corps er… state departments steno pool, question her on what job opportunities are available to the deliberately uneducated population would be available during a semblance of peace time. $15 dollar an hour gardening – no water for ag, fast food server – needs taxpayers for food stamps, domestic help – no upper class… WHAT? too real. Since islam was founded upon the basis of their phoney god robbing caravans (slow moving) and thievery, I’m pretty sure the misogynistic, pedophiles, would run short of helpless victims pretty quickly and have to revert to the teachings of moe the perv and expand outward to victims who have actually created something of value!!!

  • LegalizeShemp

  • LegalizeShemp

    Liberals say the same thing here, that “poverty is the root cause of crime”. A false narrative by Marxist Democrats, that if you simply give more freebies to people they’ll stop being criminals. Its the Big Lie.

  • Northpaw

    Two reasons for this;

    1) In the liberal playbook all crime is the result of economic circumstances

    2) Marie Harf and her boss know exactly why this is happening and will continue to happen, the religion that undergirds and empowers it is Islam and they dare not speak its name or accuse it of the crimes committed in its name. Therefore 1) is the safer of the two excuses and it is the one they will run with every trip of the train.

    • Ruy Diaz

      “1) In the liberal playbook all crime is the result of economic circumstances.”

      This reflexive Marxism is at the very heart of their project. I call it Marxism, but it is much older; the idea goes back thousands of years. And no matter how many times it is shown wrong by reality, every generation accepts it on faith.

    Harf should just go back to making porno movies. How on earth did this dimwit get a job representing the State Dept? The Nazi’s were stopped because we killed them. This evil will only be stopped by killing ISIS and their entire blood lines. Because if you don’t kill the “root” it will just sprout back up in the future and have to be dealt with again.

    I’m sure that if we sent someone to Iraq/Syria right now and promised ISIS jobs they would drop their weapons and come straight home and live peacefully alongside us right? Cause that’s what they’re REALLY upset about, this is nothing more than a violent workers strike.

Forty thousand pork-butcher jobs for our little terror buddies – and plenty of pork for their kitchens. Lil’ terror buddies are more than qualified for any job involving butchery. Send the equally brilliant Marie Harf over to run the enterprise and be “spokesman” for all U.S. “Lil’ Buddy” employment assistance programs. Our lil’ terror buddies do eat pork, don’t they? Unemployment and hunger solved in a single stroke of Harf-genius. Jeezz! The rest of us are so frikkin’ stupid!

For an other answer, you need to go back to the voting booth again and rethink your last vote. How well did that vote work out for you ?

  • dasher

    The root cause of ISIS is religious ideology. Those in charge want to return to a medieval caliphate because it’s the closest they can come to fulfilling their strict interpretation of the Koran. They see themselves as catalysts in bringing about the apocalypse. They want payback against Crusaders. They feel that Sharia Law is the ultimate blueprint for society. Yes, their jihadist methods may attract various psychopaths and the disenfranchised from around the world so they can act out their frustrations, but at the core of the ISIS problem is not the fact that it’s un-Islamic… it’s Islam on steroids! Is it only Obama and his pinhead minions that can’trecognize this for exactly what it is?

    The Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch imagines Harf’s advice to past military leaders from Themopylae to World War II. Here’s her advice to Patton: “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by curing poverty in the other poor dumb bastard’s country!”

      silly he HAS a job… the beheading part.. durrr!..
      and who did the job search for that? was it on monster? or linkin? and what was the qualifications? or just OJT. see we send obummer over there and till him that they don’t offer healthcare or benefits with that job.. that would PO a bunch of dems.. tell them they want to unionize the whole ISIS thing since they are basically unprotected workers.. heck tell them a repub owns the company. that would get the ball rolling for sure..

    I guess she is right. .in a weird way.. if they had jobs.. like working in a pig slaughter house then it would use their beheading skills to good use is one and two they would have something to kill. not to mention.. pigs are evil.. I eat as much bacon as I can and trust me bacon is evil.
    PLUS!!!! if they WERE working say 12-15 hr days they would have less time to behead people wage war and terrorist acts. yea its a sound strategy. I am for it..
    here is my plan..
    we meet with isis.. say we have a HUGE snow removal contract in the artic and send them all there to dig it out. I don’t know till them there is some radical Christians there that are trying to convert the locals. or a huge christen/Jewish population there,
    FREE transportation to the area BUT they have to pay for the return trip.
