After the horrific ISIS terrorist attack on Paris on November 13th, evidence surfaced that several of the terrorists entered Europe under the guise of refugees. Following this staggering revelation, instead of pausing to consider a similar threat in the United States, Obama announced America will be placing even more Syrian refugees on the fast track to importation.
The country erupted in arguments whether Obama is compassionate or traitorous. The media immediately circled the wagons along with many Liberal Democrats arguing that it would be un-American to turn away these poor exiles. Charges were launched against Republican Presidential candidates who suggested we should suspend the refugee program as there is no way to properly vet the Syrians.
Senator Ted Cruz stated that America should focus on rescuing Syrian Christians who are being targeted, crucified, and massacred by ISIS. Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar of “The View” quickly pounced, restating Liberal misinformation, citing that both Hitler and Timothy McVey were Christians that did equally despicable atrocities. This tired Liberal talking point is designed to distort truth, playing well to an uniformed audience. It is well documented that both of these men eagerly admitted they were not Christian. Behar also asserted that Cruz's statement is "not very Christian." Can she honestly not see Cruz believes in rescuing Christians from their persecutors while stopping the import of those very same persecutors here? The Muslim refugees have several sympathetic Islamic countries they can flee to close to their own homes, culture, and language. On the other hand, "safe spaces" for Christians in the Middle East are evaporating quickly.
The morning of the Paris attack, Barack Obama commented "I don't think they're (ISIS) gaining strength. What is true, from the start our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq and in Syria they'll come in, they'll leave. But you don't see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain." His clear lack of understanding, or unwillingness to admit the truth, is supported by his statement after the attack, “The terrible events in Paris were obviously a terrible and sickening setback. Even as we grieve with our French friends, however, we can't lose sight that there has been progress being made."
Both of these statements go to prove how completely incompetent Obama is on foreign affairs. He is either refusing to recognize or is actively supporting the threat that radical Islam places on the world. This was proven in a speech where he had harsher words for Republicans than ISIS. “We are not well served when, in response to a terrorist attack, we descend into fear and panic. We don’t make good decisions if it’s based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks.” An interesting statement coming from an administration that boldly claimed, "you never let a serious crisis go to waste."
Knee jerk reactions are the bread and butter of a community organizer. Rather than carefully examining the facts involving the arrest of a friend, he took the opportunity to make a racial claim as if he was taking to the streets in 1955 Montgomery, Alabama. "Not having been there and not seeing all the facts...it’s fair to say that the Cambridge police acted stupidly." As he readily admitted, facts aren't important, the agenda is. He later sparked the flames of discontent like any good Fabian Socialist when he said, "If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin." Martin “could have been me 35 years ago.” Seeing another opportunity to cause racial strife without waiting for the facts, he stated “I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man (Michael Brown) through reflection and understanding.” Michael Brown had died after robbing a convenience store and fighting a police officer. (see ) Who he was didn't matter. What color he was did. Obama’s statements directly fed the “Black Lives Matter” formation.
To challenge Republican candidates proposing that the United States stop accepting Muslim refugees from Syria, he said, “When individuals say we should have a religious test and that only Christians, proven Christians should be admitted, that’s offensive.” It's interesting what Obama claims is offensive. What’s offensive is Muslims beheading or crucifying Christians. What’s offensive is Islamic extremists promising death and destruction to the infidels. What's offensive is Islam's murder of homosexuals and raping and enslaving of women. What's offensive is radical Islamist strapping on bombs and walking into theaters to blow up Muslims that aren't Islamic enough. What's offensive is the president will not even admit that any of this is happening. Why should there be a religious exception to refugees from the Middle East? There are no Christian members of ISIS, period.
In desperation, Democrats are comparing the Muslim refugees to Jews seeking refuge from Hitler and the Nazis just prior to World War II. Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt rejected the refugees sending them home to suffer the fate of the concentration camps and gas chambers. (see ) Democrats argue this is equal to rejecting the Syrian Muslims. It’s not. It’s the Christian Syrians that are the “Jews” in this scenario and again, a Democrat president is flat out denying them access. The dangerous truth is Obama is demanding the acceptance of today's Nazis.
During WWII, Roosevelt set up internment camps for Japanese-Americans. (see ) After the Pearl Harbor attack, we had no idea who might be here sympathizing with their homeland. (see ) It was a very unfortunate time in American history, but totally understandable. It is the president’s supreme responsibility to defend citizens against possible attacks, both foreign and domestic. Though many can argue Roosevelt went too far with the camps, Roosevelt's actions were based on the security of the country. Obama is doing the complete opposite, providing transportation, medical care, and housing to those who would do us harm.
Obama mocked Republicans, stating, "Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America." If Obama would care to read even just a few of his briefings, he would know that about 80% of the refugees are healthy males of military age. Any president truly concerned about the safety of his people instead of his “fundamental transformation of America” agenda would be trying to find out why these men want to come here instead of staying and fighting for their country. Does he even wonder why they aren’t bringing their families with them? Trey Gowdy summed it up perfectly. “The President says we’re scared of widows and orphans, with all due respect to him, what I’m afraid of is a foreign policy that creates more widows and orphans.” Rand Paul reminded us that “The Boston bombers came here as refugees. We coddled them, we gave them free stuff, we gave them free housing, and yet, they decided to attack us, so there’s a great risk.” Exactly, gentlemen.
Terrified of killing even one civilian, pilots recently confirmed that Obama has blocked 75% of airstrikes against ISIS. This inept policy has allowed ISIS to get a firm hold in the Middle East, recruit, grow, and kill. Since the Paris attack, pressure has intensified so much he finally started going after ISIS’s funding by bombing oil tankers. Forty-five minutes before hand, though, flyers were dropped warning of the incoming strike. In a similar fashion, Democrat President Bill Clinton refused to go after Osama Bin Ladin after the 1993 World Trade Center attack and it eventually led to 3,000 deaths on September 11, 2001. (see ) Obama’s refusal to act has enabled ISIS to strengthen and intensify, granting the terrorist group the freedom and time to plan and prepare the caliphate their faith so passionately preaches.
It’s honorable Obama doesn’t want to inflict even one civilian casualty. However, he shows absolutely no regard for the number of American civilians he is willing to place in harm’s way by risking bringing even one terrorist onto our soil. Islamic terrorists purposely hide among civilians. They attack from homes, schools and Mosques, knowing that we will not return fire on such buildings. Why would they view hiding among refugees any differently? They clearly don't, as Paris has proven. In Syria, 70 percent of the Muslims support the actions and agenda of ISIS. Here it's just the White House and the Liberal media, and even some of them are waking up.
We have been told since 2008 that Obama is the smartest president ever. If that is so, how can he be so incompetent in his efforts against ISIS? It forces one to wonder what Obama’s true motives really are. We now know the Benghazi attack was because of guns this administration was running to Syria to support rebels to oust Assad. Those guns went directly into the hands of rebels now known as ISIS. Obama supports “Black Lives Matter,” who I demonstrated in last week’s are using the same tactics as ISIS. One can only conclude that the common denominator between the birth of BLM and ISIS is Barack Obama. It’s not that he doesn’t understand the threat. Any honest analysis of Obama’s actions and statements proves he’s nurturing it.
On this week of Thanksgiving, we need to be thankful for the freedoms we have. Let us remember that the Pilgrims came to this country as refugees seeking freedom from the tyranny and persecution of the crown of England. (see ) We do want to help and support others seeking protection, but not of the risk of loosing the very freedom those Pilgrims brought to the shores of this country. Over 60% of Americans understand this danger and do not want Syrian Muslims scattered throughout our country as we do not have an accurate vetting system to ensure the safety of our citizens. If only 1 percent of those Muslims that come into the country want to harm us we are looking at 850 invaders brought here by our own President. 850 waiting for the moment they are told to go. That is a risk the President seems quite comfortable taking. Even some staunch Liberal Democrats are breaking with Barack here. Senator Diane Feinstein, ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, disputed Obama when she stated, "I have never been more concerned. ISIL is not contained. ISIL is expanding. They just put out a video saying it is their intent to attack this country. I think we have to be prepared."
I pray this country opens its eyes and falls on its knees before the Good Lord and asks forgiveness before He lets us reap what we have sown.
That’s my 2 cents.
