Obama Ignores Terrorism

October 25, 2014

After declaring Al Qaeda defeated (and taking credit for it), president Obama returned to social engineering and the forcing of his “transformation” agenda upon the country. Terrorism was a fly in his agenda’s ointment, so denying the severity and often the very existence of it, especially here at home, became his politically expedient way of handling the “distraction”. Michelle Malkin takes Obama to task for this dangerous evasiveness.

From Michelle Malkin

President Obama says he’s “shaken” by this week’s violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and “solidarity”… Too bad Obama didn’t show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil…Where was President Obama when Muslim Muhammad Hussain was arrested in Maryland in 2010 after scheming to blow up an Army recruitment office?…Where was President Obama when Muslim Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo was arrested in 2011 with explosives, a gun and jihadi propaganda?… Where was President Obama when a gang of Islamic thugs in Newburgh, NY was arrested plotting to “bring death to Jews” at nearby synagogues and “commit jihad”?… Where was President Obama in June 2011 when Seattle jihadists were busted after plotting to attack the Military Entrance Processing Station?… Where was President Obama when Musim convert Muhammad Yusuf was caught by New York City police in 2011 building a pipe bomb he planned to use to kill police and U.S. soldiers returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan?… Where was President Obama after an Islamic terrorist ring in Raleigh, NC got busted in 2009 plotting to bomb military installations and die “as martyrs in furtherance of violent jihad”?…
Where was Obama? Sabotaging our borders, restricting our gun rights, working to free Gitmo jihadists, decrying Islamophobia, demonizing conservatives, welcoming jihad sympathizers to the White House and putting politics over national security.

When “Rights” are Wrong

September 4, 2014

In a Labor Day speech, Obama brought up the idea of “rights” for illegal immigrants. This goes far beyond amnesty. It is an attempt to sanction and even legalize the illegality of sneaking across our border, insinuating that everyone has a “right” to come here, even illegally.

The country is currently experiencing chaos and economic stress due to Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration laws. More than 70,000 children have illegally crossed the border this year and are being sent to states for shelter, benefits, and schooling without even notifying those states. In 2013 there were 36,000 illegals awaiting deportation proceedings released from detention, many who were convicted of serious and violent crimes, and ICE declined to bring immigration charges against 68,000 other illegal alien criminals who were detained and released.

School systems across the country are being flooded with illegal immigrant children causing economic stress to the point of possible bankruptcy. It has been estimated that it will cost $760 million dollars this year to pay for their education. When you add the estimated $252/day it costs to care for each child, the total cost to taxpayers this year is estimated to be $2 billion dollars.

In spite of this impact, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, head of the Democratic National Committee, said illegals are “part of the backbone of our economy”; AFL-CIO union president Richard Trumka said he would like to see “affirmative action” for illegal immigrants; and Democratic candidate for governor of NY, Zephyr Teachout, said she wants state citizenship for illegals. What they really want is votes (and unions want their dues), but that’s hidden between the lines.

Bowing to Obama’s de facto amnesty policy, immigration court judges are setting hearing dates four years into the future while deported illegal aliens are even being invited back for reconsideration. A recently signed Memorandum of Understanding with Mexico ensures Mexican Nationals will have workplace rights regardless of their immigration status.

Considering that the net job growth in North Carolina since 2000 went to immigrants, both legal and illegal, the idea of “rights” for illegal immigrants is an insult to native-born citizens, especially those who lost their jobs in Obama’s failing economy. Sadly, it has become common practice for Obama to insult traditional Americans and international allies. It’s all part of his “transformation of America”.

See No Evil

August 25, 2014

ISIS is a large, well-financed, blood-thirsty army storming unimpeded through Iraq murdering all who do not agree to their repressive demands. They have ravaged Syria, beheaded an American (with two more US captives being threatened), demanded (and received) ransoms from European countries, are in the process of taking over Iraq, and have informed us that they are intent on coming to the U.S. to kill as many as possible, having our open southern border available for easy entry.

Here’s what the Daily Kos, which sees no evil, thinks of ISIS: “You know how much threat ISIS represents to the United States? None…ISIS is a ragtag organization on the far side of the world…ISIS could no more threaten the United States than Lindsey Graham could punch God in the nose…You know what ISIS is? A bunch of politicians…They are not a threat…”

Michael J. Boyle of the NY Times tells us the beheading of American journalist James Foley has “led to a disturbing return of the moralistic language once used to describe Al Qaeda in the panicked days after the 9/11 attacks.” Boyle worries that condemning ISIS as evil “conveys a moral clarity and separates ourselves and our tactics from the enemy and theirs”. Boyle should be thankful we have the moral clarity to separate ourselves from the tactics of ISIS. Moral clarity helped make this country great.

The attack on 9/11 by a small band of terrorists was certainly evil and it wreaked havoc on our entire economy and changed our way of life. The NY Times refuses to accept it as evil and The Daily Kos would have us believe that a much larger, better financed, and highly motivated terrorist army such as ISIS poses no threat. Far-left heads are buried in moral equivalent sand.

Perhaps an even larger threat to our country comes from those believing in the idealistic and foolish notion of moral equivalency. Allowing it to become government policy is as dangerous as it gets and proudly proclaiming it is just stupid.

Preposterous

July 28, 2014

Conservative (though often independent) columnist George Will stunned many when he told Fox News host Chris Wallace: “The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous”, adding that the US should handle the problem because it is capable of doing so.

This is indicative of how difficult and emotional the border situation has become and how successful it is to use children for political purposes. It is becoming more and more apparent that Obama is using this influx of children to force his dream of amnesty. This use of children may be less dangerous than Hamas’ use of children as shields, but it is the same basic and disgusting principle.

While George Will is correct in saying the US can handle the estimated 60,000 children that have already crossed the border, the truly “preposterous” thing is that until the border is secured, that number will just increase to the point where the US can’t handle it. There has already been a 117% increase in children crossing in the past year.

It is also “preposterous” that Obama has no intention of securing the border and is now preparing to issue an executive order granting the amnesty he cannot get Congress to approve. Just the reporting of this possibility is sure to entice more to cross illegally. Whether this comes from blind adherence to an agenda or pure political manipulation, the flood at the border will increase as a result.

Seeing those children at the border tugs at everyone’s heart strings, not just George Will’s, but there are more than “8-year-olds” crossing the border. There are cartel members, gang members, and possible international terrorists taking advantage of Obama’s immigration folly. While border agents focus on taking care of children, the border is an open door to all, and that is incredibly dangerous.

Emotions need to be put aside and the border needs to be properly secured before this can be dealt with properly. It is truly “preposterous” that Obama chooses to ignore the consequences of his actions. George Will knows this, but emotions got the better of him.

Ridiculous Reid Rhetoric

July 17, 2014

We have an urgent humanitarian crisis occurring at our southern border brought on by a flow of (mostly) children crossing the border illegally. These children are not evading border agents; they are searching them out in order to get amnesty and the benefits an Obama executive order produced. These illegal crossings cannot currently be controlled or stopped by the totally overwhelmed federal agents assigned to the border. What would you call this?

The border is securesaid Harry Reid recently. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Perhaps both Reid and Heinrich don’t watch TV, read the papers, bother to keep up with current events, or misunderstand the meaning of “secure”. More than likely, they are both just partisan fools forcing an agenda.

Unfortunately, they are not alone. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, another Democrat, wants us to believe that children crossing illegally and handing themselves over to border agents ‘proves’ that the border is secure. This is as inane as Homeland Security telling us the recent deportation of 40 adults and children (over 60,000 children have crossed in the past 9 months) ‘proves’ the White House means business. It only proves that White House business is amnesty.

The definition of “secure” for many Democrats is as strangely nuanced as President Clinton’s definition of “is”. The White House assures us that border security is at an all-time high, citing the money and guards thrown at the problem as proof. Using that criterion, our public education system should be the best the world has ever seen, yet, many kids are graduating high school still unable to read at an 8th grade level.

Money is not the answer and Reid’s ridiculous rhetoric is an insult – and the whole world is laughing.

Stupid Border Line

July 11, 2014

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes displayed “superior intelligence”, nuance, and insight by insisting that too much security at the border is our problem. He tells us that the border has never been more secure and that increased security is responsible for the humanitarian crisis that is now occurring.

He ignorantly explains: “If the border was not well staffed and protected, agents probably wouldn’t be there to apprehend the unprecedented number of unaccompanied minor children who are showing up”. He further states that more security “could make the crisis even worse”.

These so-called “apprehended” children are searching out border agents in order to turn themselves in to get amnesty and US benefits. They are overwhelming border guards who are now fully engaged in child care rather than border security, thereby, creating an open border for anyone wanting to enter illegally. That open border may be Hayes’ dream come true, but it is extremely dangerous for the country.

In Hayes’ twisted logic, removing more border guards would stop these children from crossing. That is insane, but it is the world according to MSNBC and many other deranged liberals. Anything negative said about Obama is turned around and treated as a positive no matter how stupid or outrageous it is. This is knee-jerk liberalism at its best or, more accurately, its worst.

Labeling this only as a humanitarian crisis is just another rhetorical ploy. Yes, it is a humanitarian crisis, but it is also a government, immigration, border, security, social, and leadership crisis. It is the epitome of administration failure on display for all to see – and it is insulting to have Chris Hayes insist we drink his liberal Kool-Aid. You are an ass, Mr. Hayes, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Right now, there is more security being used to keep reporters away from this “humanitarian” crisis than there is to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the border. How insane is that?

Obama Worse Than Carter

July 10, 2014

Jimmy Carter has been acknowledged by a majority on both sides of the aisle as being an ineffective, weak president, particularly on foreign affairs; therefore, increasing comparisons of Obama to Carter are a sure sign that Obama is failing badly. With more than two years remaining in his term, Obama is on a path to earning a worse legacy than Carter.

A recent poll found president Obama to be the worst president since WWII with more voters feeling that Romney would have been better. This places Carter above Obama, making a mockery of the continued positive spin coming from unconditional Obama supporters.

The economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9% during the first three months of 2014, the worst non-recession contraction in over 40 years. The liberal New Republic magazine, however, ignores this and wants us to believe that a monthly job report for June shows the economy skipping first gear and kicking into second gear when, in fact, it is going in reverse.

Our southern border is being overrun with children crossing illegally into the country because of Obama’s personal immigration policy and reluctance to act, creating an overwhelming situation. CNN’s Sally Kohn, however, assures us: “This is not a border crisis. These kids are coming to the border, they are getting stopped, the border is working”. If this is considered “working”, one wonders what a non-functional border looks like to Kohn.

The Daily Kos, just four months ago, argued that Obama’s foreign policy made a lot of sense and was advancing our interests around the globe. This is the same foreign policy that is proving worse than Carter’s, reducing confidence and credibility in the US in all our allies and emboldening our enemies to act aggressively.

Emotional investment in Obama has blocked reality for many, but comparisons to Jimmy Carter have to take a toll. If those comparisons shred the blinders unconditional supporters wear, they could end up being a positive for Carter’s legacy. That, of course, would lower Obama’s legacy even further.

Obama’s Rock Bottom Still to Come

July 9, 2014

From Alex Castellanos at CNN

Everywhere you walk, Mr. President, the world unravels. Americans are whispering that each political missile you fire seems to hit not its target but our own house…Your Veterans Administration is a dysfunctional mess…Your immigration agents are changing diapers and crying for fresh underwear…Your own signature initiative, the Affordable Care Act, has turned on you…Your Supreme Court is telling you to read the manual that came with your office…You are protected by the thinly manned barricades of an attorney general who refuses to investigate misconduct in your executive offices…In foreign affairs, you have undone one of the great accomplishments of the 20th century…Young people who voted for you to earn a better life than their parents are now living with their parents…You have now been reduced to pathetically small political “listening tours”… Behind the smile, we see an ego inflated beyond merit. Your intellectual detachment, we now find, was merely cluelessness…The road ahead is worse for you…

Request Underwear Elsewhere

June 24, 2014

The Department of Homeland Security is trying to fill an order for thousands of men’s underwear needed for the influx of detainees caught illegally crossing our border. Perhaps a request should go out to Mexico and Central America for help in covering the asses of their citizens who are coming here illegally. Why is it that we get no help at all from these countries? Do we even ask for help, or do we just assume responsibility?

We are being bombarded with people (including hardcore criminals and some disease-ridden) rather than missiles, but it is still a bombardment – and a foreign invasion. Isn’t that a job for our military? Isn’t it time to treat this problem as something more than just a humanitarian issue?

It has already become dangerous and our government has made no effort to stop the flow. In fact, this administration has announced to the world that the gates are wide open. Couldn’t we at least require them to bring a change of underwear? Or is that racist?

Our Government is Failing Its Responsibilities

June 16, 2014

The Preamble to the Constitution tells us very succinctly why our government exists: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…Our government is currently failing to live up to these basic responsibilities.

Justice” for our government has been ideologically distorted to cater to minorities at the expense of the majority in order to advance the current administration’s policies. The Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is surrounded in controversy with issues such as aggressive probing of journalists, the IRS scandal, drone attacks, and much more. It has selectively decided what to pursue and not pursue based on politics rather than justice and laws are being rewritten or ignored.

Domestic tranquility” has been severely hampered by the political partisanship pervading Congress. President Obama has established an “us against them” atmosphere for political gain and policies are being advanced that widen the divide in the country.

Providing for the country’s defense is the most egregious failure of our government. Our southern border is open due to policies set in place unilaterally by president Obama resulting in known Mexican gang members as well as possible terrorists entering the country with impunity. Obama’s abandonment of Iraq resulted in al Qaeda taking over and possibly gaining an entire country with its resources to use against us. Iran, on the verge of having nuclear weapons, may easily fill the void in Iraq or aid the terrorists to our detriment. Afghanistan is sure to follow suit when Obama’s declared abandonment comes to fruition. Putin is fearlessly resurrecting the USSR, endangering the U.S. and the entire world.

Social policies encouraged by our current government do not “promote the general Welfare”. These policies promote the “specific welfare” of groups that are politically advantageous for a transformation of America that will do nothing to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. This transformation is designed to prune our liberties to fit an idealistic agenda contrary to American traditions.

Our government’s failure to live up to these responsibilities is glaring and frightening. If we don’t get our government back to basics soon, there will be no future for our form of government.
