Unlike many, listening to Obama speak produces a volatile reaction — vomiting ensues — therefore, reading the transcript is all that can be mustered. It goes without saying that the man occupying the Oval Office uses every opportunity to push his agenda. When any criminal act involves a gun, he quickly jumps to push gun control. However, in the wake of terrorists organizations present on US soil, gun control will do nothing to stop the procurement of firearms by those organizations. What gun control will do is limit law-abiding citizens from obtaining a means of protection against terrorists while violating the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
Taking a look as some points contained in Obama’s speech, his statements do not match his actions. This is the first part of a two part commentary.
Tonight I want to talk with you about this tragedy, the broader threat of terrorism and how we can keep our country safe. The FBI is still gathering the facts about what happened in San Bernardino, but here’s what we know. The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their co-workers and his wife. So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home. But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West. They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition, and pipe bombs.
The FBI has stated this was an act of terrorism as Obama did as well. However, what these individuals did was follow the Qu’ran to kill the infidel. Islam is Islam; followers are called to jihad — a war to kill the unbelievers or those who are not Muslim. Yet, Obama refuses to call the enemy of America as Islam, claiming these individuals embraced “a perverted interpretation of Islam.” Despite Imams and others who counter Obama’s claims, he continues to lie and deceive citizens about Islam.
News reports surfaced before his speech indicating the female jihadi had ties to Al Qaeda and had pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Baghdadi over Facebook. Iranians, during the Iran Nuclear Deal negotiations, along with Islamic clerics and a member of Iran’s government called “Death to America.” It seems the interpretation of Islam calling for war against the infidels (American and the West) is not so perverted as Obama wants America to believe.
So this was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people. Our nation has been at war with terrorists since Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11. In the process, we’ve hardened our defenses, from airports, to financial centers, to other critical infrastructure. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have disrupted countless plots here and overseas and worked around the clock to keep us safe.
If our nation is at war with terrorists and it has been determined these terrorists follow Mohammed, embracing the tenets of Islam, why in the world is this man in the Oval Office importing Muslims into this nation? As we have seen, children and women who follow Islam can commit acts of terrorism against anyone in this nation. Islam has declared war on the US — Al Qaeda is Islam; ISIS is Islam. Therefore, followers of Islam are the enemy — an enemy Obama has armed, supported and covered for because he is working overtime to destroy America through treasonous acts. In fact, Obama refuses to acknowledge the creation of ISIS by the US. Another question Obama doesn’t address is the importation of individuals who are associated with the same cult, Islam, who declared war on the US. Just as a person’s skin is the first line of defense in preventing infection, the US borders and ports of entry are the first line of defense in securing the nation.
Our borders remain porous where anyone and everyone can enter. Most are not detected, caught or detained by Border Patrol. One of our lines of defense, a secure border, is not addressed per Obama’s own instructions and policies.
Our military and counterterrorism professionals have relentlessly pursued terrorist networks overseas, disrupting safe havens in several different countries, killing Osama Bin Laden, and decimating Al Qaeda’s leadership.
Killing the leadership of Islamic militant organizations does not eradicate or decimate the leadership or quell the organization. Others rise in the organization to assume a leadership position or the next individual in line joins the organization with another. This is where ISIS comes in — Al Qaeda joined others, the US created, armed, and supported this group to topple Syria’s Assad. Where is all the NSA data gathered from everyone in the US that should have identified these individuals to prevent this terrorist act? This is what the government sold to Americans in order for Americans to relinquish a portion of their individual God-given rights. Nowhere to be found as the intent is to control and surveil Americans, not address terrorists or terrorism.
Over the last few years, however, the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase. As we’ve become better at preventing complex multifaceted attacks like 9/11, terrorists turn to less complicated acts of violence like the mass shootings that are all too common in our society. [emphasis mine] It is this type of attack that we saw at Fort Hood in 2009, in Chattanooga earlier this year, and now in San Bernardino.
If anyone is still under the delusion that the US government has prevented any terrorist attack or plan because of the PATRIOT Act, the NDAA, or NSA spying at this point in time, there is no help for convincing you the claim is false, especially with all the documented proof. If anyone is under the delusion that these “monthly” shootings are random and not instigated and contrived for the promotion of the gun control agenda, there is nothing anyone can do to help you understand the use of Alinsky tactics or the Cloward-Piven schemes.
And as groups like ISIL grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and then Syria, and as the Internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing efforts by terrorists to poison the minds of people like the Boston Marathon bombers and the San Bernardino killers.
For seven years, I’ve confronted this evolving threat each and every morning in my intelligence briefing, and since the day I took this office, I have authorized U.S. forces to take out terrorists abroad precisely because I know how real the danger is.
As commander in chief, I have no greater responsibility than the security of the American people.
ISIL stands for “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” It is the same organization as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and IS (Islamic State). Russia warned the US about the Boston Marathon Bomber brothers and provided crucial information. In fact, the FBI investigated them, supposedly, and gave them a “two thumbs up” as A-OK. Either the FBI is filled with incompetent, negligent individuals or it’s a plot to inflict terror on the US to further the agenda of gun control; honestly, it’s both.
Obama has missed over 50% of his “morning intelligence briefings.” Those in the know recognize the many lies told as there are 1,155 documented incidences of his lies, crimes, and treason; that number continues to grow. So 1,156 is the lie on intelligence briefings — he doesn’t attend nor read any briefings. If he is so concerned over the “security of the American people,” his actions would be different. Since America has been at war with Islam and Islamic leaders have declared war on America, Obama, as “commander in chief,” has failed in his duty since he “aids and abets the enemy” by appointing Muslims to key government positions, covers for Islam at every turn, and provides ISIS with money, arms and other needs.
Obama does not address the fact that any reference of Islam or Islamic groups as terrorists has been removed from intelligence documents and replaced with categories intended to target law-abiding US citizens. Could it be that Muslims in key positions, as members of the Muslim Brotherhood, had anything to do with that with Obama’s support? What about tightening or better yet suspending immigration, securing the borders, deportation of individuals here illegally, and cease importing Muslim individuals via UPS planes to America?
And I know that after so much war, many Americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure.
Well, here’s what I want you to know. The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it. We will destroy ISIL and any other organization that tries to harm us. Our success won’t depend on tough talk, or abandoning our values or giving into fear. That’s what groups like ISIL are hoping for. Instead, we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless. And by drawing upon every aspect of American power.
Many American citizens know the threat from terrorism is real, it’s a cancer that needs to be surgically removed from our nation, and needs to be defeated in earnest. So far, the terror threat exists from followers of Islam. While claiming our success does not depend on “tough talk, or abandoning our values or giving into fear,” Obama does all three as he demands violation of the Second Amendment, gives into fear by not naming the enemy as Islam, and talks tough about destroying ISIS while playing “patty cake” in air strikes in Iraq and Syria.
If Obama is not in denial of the threat, recognizes the existence of the terror threat in the US, and continues his policies that contradict national security while pushes to continue infringing on the Second Amendment, Obama becomes the biggest threat to our national security and should be removed from office.
