As Written By Allen B. West:
I must admit, just when you think there’s nothing more bizarre that can emanate from the mouth of President Barack Obama, well, he takes it to another level. Two years ago, President Obama referred to ISIS — or as he likes to say, ISIL — as the JV Team just to disrespect and dismiss the existence of the State of Israel.
Now, Obama has a new spin on the savage and barbaric Islamic jihadist group.

Maybe President Obama is getting all worked up for the soon-to-be-released “Superman vs. Batman” movie. One thing is for certain, ISIS may be the Joker, but Barack Obama doggone sure ain’t The Dark Knight. The existence of ISIS is not some laughing matter that should be compared to a Hollywood movie — although the West family certainly spends a Saturday evening every now and then watching the classic movie, “The Dark Knight.”
