This is the second part of the series covering Obama’s speech on 12/6/2015 advocating gun control in the wake of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, CA.
If anyone is paying attention to what this man is saying, it should ring clear that the greatest threat to national security resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, DC. While he talks about what is being done, he is lying on many of the points. Some are out and out lies while other contain some parts of truth.
Here’s how. First, our military will continue to hunt down terrorist plotters in any country where it is necessary. In Iraq and Syria, air strikes are taking out ISIL leaders, heavy weapons, oil tankers, infrastructure.
And since attacks in Paris, our closest allies, including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, have ramped up their contributions to our military campaign which will help us accelerate our effort to destroy ISIL.
Russia has reported that US airstrikes, after one year, are not hindering ISIS but helping ISIS. Remember, Obama wants Assad’s government in Syria gone. Russia has done more in the weeks Putin has initiated military strikes against ISIS than the US, under Obama, has done in one year. If France, Germany and the UK enter into the mix under Obama’s instructions, those nations will be wasting their resources, personnel and time.
Second, we will continue to provide training and equipment to tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian forces fighting ISIL on the ground so that we take away their safe havens.
In both countries, we’re deploying special operations forces who can accelerate that offensive. We’ve stepped up this effort since the attacks in Paris, and will continue to invest more in approaches that are working on the ground.
The United States has been training and providing equipment to Iraqis and Syrians just to have them defect to ISIS, taking our training and equipment with them. When ISIS first started their campaign, Iraqi soldiers, trained by the US, dropped their weapons and ran. Why should we send our forces, waste our resources and time, and, most importantly, waste American lives for nations whose people refuse to defend it?
This is a ruse for Obama to get troops into the area in order to fabricate some other falsehood to try and depose Assad, placing a US puppet government in place. If the past is any indication, it will result in disaster — think Egypt, Libya, Ukraine, etc.
Third, we’re working with friends and allies to stop ISIL’s operations, to disrupt plots, cut off their financing, and prevent them from recruiting more fighters.
Since the attacks in Paris, we’ve surged merged intelligence sharing with our European allies. We’re working with Turkey to seal its border with Syria, and we are cooperating with Muslim majority countries, and with our Muslim communities here at home, to counter the vicious ideology that ISIL promotes online.
If border security doesn’t work as Obama has claimed for the US, why is he urging Turkey to seal its borders? “We’ve merged intelligence sharing with our European allies,” claims Obama. Europe is over-run by an invasion of Muslims. Their resources are being expended to provide for the millions so France and Germany, possibly the UK, have very limited resources to spend on helping Obama help ISIS. Obama still promotes the lie that the “vicious ideology that ISIL promotes” is not the true ideology of Islam. Well, it is. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Iraq and even Turkey along with other Muslim majority nations, are supportive of Sharia and violators of basic human rights. If any of these nations was going to try and stop ISIS movements and formation of a caliphate, those nations would have done so by now.
America finances ISIS. The internet reaches everyone. NSA and US government agencies have yet to stop any attacks or plots. If someone is going to join ISIS to fight, they will. Recruitment cannot be prevented. So, what exactly is the plan? There is no specifics so probably a plan cannot be developed. More lies from the Muslim sympathizer.
Fourth, with American leadership, the international community has begun to establish a process and timeline to pursue cease-fires and a political resolution to the Syrian war.
American leadership equates to Obama, who has led from behind since usurping office and always seems to be 10 days late and 19 trillion dollars short.
Doing so will allow the Syrian people and every country, including our allies, but also countries like Russia, to focus on the common goal of destroying ISIL, a group that threatens us all.
This is our strategy to destroy ISIL. It is designed and supported by our military commanders and counterterrorism experts, together with 65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition. And we constantly examine our strategy to determine when additional steps are needed to get the job done.
Obama fired all competent experienced military commanders or they resigned. Counterterrorism experts aren’t so expert or some incidences would have not occurred or ISIS formed. For almost 10 years, our “counterterrorism experts” could not locate Osama Bin Laden; yet, Al Jazeera and other news agencies were able to gain access for videos and interviews.
That’s why I’ve ordered the Departments of State and Homeland Security to review the visa *
waiver program under which the female terrorist in San Bernardino originally came to this country. And that’s why I will urge high-tech and law enforcement leaders to make it harder for terrorists to use technology to escape from justice.
Terrorists are using technology to escape from justice? No one told any one here in the US one can escape “justice” from using technology. Actually, the Departments Obama mentions are headed by ding-dongs following his inane, ineffective, terrorist supporting, policies. Obama hates America and everything about it. His actions have one end only — the destruction of America, meaning our government, Constitution and its people.
Now, here at home, we have to work together to address the challenge. There are several steps that Congress should take right away. To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no- fly list is able to buy a gun. What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semiautomatic weapon? This is a matter of national security.
We also need to make it harder for people to buy powerful assault weapons, like the ones that were used in San Bernardino. I know there are some who reject any gun-safety measures, but the fact is that our intelligence and law-enforcement agencies, no matter how effective they are, cannot identify every would-be mass shooter, whether that individual was motivated by ISIL or some other hateful ideology.
What we can do, and must do, is make it harder for them to kill.
Again, a push for gun control, which means law-abiding citizens having a more difficult time obtaining firearms. If intelligence and law enforcement agencies can’t identify every would-be mass shooter or terrorist after having quadrillion billions of bits of data collected on everyone in the US by the NSA, what the hell good is all this “intelligence” gathering? It doesn’t do anything except create a profile of US citizens for government to use against us later, which is why many are opposed to the data hoovering.
Police cannot be everywhere and the average American does not have access to private bodyguards/security, who are armed, or Secret Service agents, who are armed,protecting our politicians, nor does the average American live in “secured” communities. Exactly how are Americans supposed to defend themselves in the case of any type of attack? Criminals will find a way to get firearms or just have the government procure them for their use, like Fast and Furious and the arms running in Libya.
Next, we should put in place stronger screening for those who come to America without a visa so that we can take a hard look at whether they’ve traveled to war zones. And we’re working with members of both parties in Congress to do exactly that.
Finally, if Congress believes, as I do, that we are at war with ISIL, it should go ahead and vote to authorize the continued use of military force against these terrorists.
And, here it is — an almost order to Congress to “authorize” use of force, not declare war, but get us into another Vietnam, Iraq skirmish or Korean police action. Our money would be better spent securing our borders through a fence and personnel stationed to take action per an attempt at illegal crossings, cease all immigration into the US, especially Muslims, and stop interfering in the governments of sovereign nations.
Obama and his administration, along with a corrupt Congress, arm, fund and support ISIS. Yet, Obama wants boots on the ground based on a ruse so he can remove Assad, claim it’s what the Syrian people wanted, and instill a terrorist government, like in Egypt.
For over a year, I have ordered our military to take thousands of air strikes against ISIL targets. I think it’s time for Congress to vote to demonstrate that the American people are united and committed to this fight.
My fellow Americans, these are the steps that we can take together to defeat the terrorist threat.
None of these steps will do anything because, as stated time and again, Obama, his administration and a corrupt Congress support ISIS, gave Iran (biggest sponsor of terrorism) the ability to attain a nuclear weapon, remains friendly with Middle East nations (Saudi Arabia) who are extreme violators of human rights and supporters of Sharia law.
Let me now say a word about what we should not do. We should not be drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria. That’s what groups like ISIL want. They know they can’t defeat us on the battlefield. ISIL fighters were part of the insurgency that we faced in Iraq. But they also know that if we occupy foreign lands, they can maintain insurgencies for years, killing thousands of our troops and draining our resources, and using our presence to draw new recruits.
The strategy that we are using now — air strikes, special forces, and working with local forces who are fighting to regain control of their own country — that is how we’ll achieve a more sustainable victory, and it won’t require us sending a new generation of Americans overseas to fight and die for another decade on foreign soil.
Someone forgot to tell ISIS they cannot defeat us on the battlefield. With Obama as their ally, they are sitting pretty good or were until Russia got involved. The US needs to leave all foreign lands and cease our meddling. The strategy Obama eludes to has been discussed previously. It’s not a strategy intended to do anything but support ISIS until Assad is removed from power in Syria.
Here’s what else we cannot do. We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam. That, too, is what groups like ISIL want.
This is coming from the “master divider.” Obama has never promoted unity, only division. However, he protects everything that is Islam and Muslim over all else. ISIS doesn’t care whether anyone gets along with Islam or them — infidels are better served dead, as slaves, or subjugated paying a jizya until they can’t pay then are served dead.
ISIL does not speak for Islam. They are thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. And they account for a tiny fraction of a more than a billion Muslims around the world, including millions of patriotic Muslim-Americans who reject their hateful ideology.
Evidently, ISIS does speak for Islam as followers of Mohammed want a caliphate and that is what ISIS is promising and succeeding in establishing. The majority of Muslims want Sharia law, including those in western countries. If ISIS is part of a cult of death, and ISIS is Islam, then Islam is a cult of death. And where are all the protests of “patriotic Muslim-Americans” against the “hateful ideology of ISIS?” Muslims cannot serve two masters. In other words, Muslims cannot be loyal to their deity and Islam while also being loyal to an infidel nation.
Moreover, the vast majority of terrorist victims around the world are Muslim.
Well, Muslims have almost eradicated the Christian population in the area of the world where it began. They are working on the Jews, Yazidis, the Kurds, and everyone else, including apostates. One finds it difficult to believe the majority of terrorist victims around the world are Muslim. Statistics are needed.
If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism, we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate.
That does not mean denying the fact that an extremist ideology has spread within some Muslim communities. It’s a real problem that Muslims must confront without excuse.
Muslim leaders here and around the globe have to continue working with us to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology that groups like ISIL and Al Qaeda promote, to speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity.
But just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans, of every faith, to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim-Americans should somehow be treated differently. Because when we travel down that road, we lose. That kind of divisiveness, that betrayal of our values plays into the hands of groups like ISIL.
Muslim-Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co- workers, our sports heroes. And, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that.
My fellow Americans, I am confident we will succeed in this mission because we are on the right side of history. We were founded upon a belief in human dignity that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like or what religion you practice, you are equal in the eyes of God and equal in the eyes of the law. Even in this political season, even as we properly debate what steps I and future presidents must take to keep our country safe. Let’s make sure we never forget what makes us exceptional. Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear. That we have always met challenges, whether war or depression, natural disasters or terrorist attacks, by coming together around our common ideals as one nation and one people.
So long as we stay true to that tradition, I have no doubt that America will prevail.
Thank you. God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.
There will be people who still buy this sack of garbage this usurper peddles. Nothing can change that. His “worshippers” will assist him in destroying the form of government established by our founders. Plenty of presidents before this man have trampled, eroded and ignored the Constitution while the Supreme Court assists. Now with Congress in on the deal, this nation, as a constitutional republic, has our fate sealed to fall.
Gun control along with confiscation is coming. You can count on it. It will come through executive order, with approval from Congress, and confirmation through an erroneous Supreme Court ruling.
