President Barack Obama’s greatest asset is his ability to wrap ideas in rhetoric and sell them to the American people. Accuracy in his statements does not matter to media. Success of his policies does not matter either. The president’s charisma insulates him from a reality check.
That’s what is needed after his June 14 speech on ISIS, because Obama simply did not tell Americans the truth, and what is happening abroad suggests that he, his former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and current secretary John Kerry, are way in over their allegedly well-educated heads.
Start with false statements Obama made about presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
OBAMA MISLEADS ON TRUMP REMARKS
“We now have proposals from the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States to bar all Muslims from emigrating to America. We hear language that singles out immigrants and suggests that entire religious communities are complicit in violence. Where does this stop? The Orlando killer, one of the San Bernardino killers, the Fort Hood killer — they were all U.S. citizens.”
That statement may resonate with diehard Democrats, but it is deliberately misleading.
Even buy modafinil online sun pharma got Trump’s remarks right:
“I will suspend immigration from areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe, or our allies, until we understand how to end these threats.”
The FBI discovered evidence terrorists were attempting to enter the US from Iraq.
buy modafinil europe, like his adviser, creative writer Ben Rhodes who didn’t know beans about national security when the president hired him, then resorted to telling half-truths.
Yes, the shooters in San Bernardino, Ft. Hood, and Orlando were US citizens at the time of the attacks. However, what Obama did not say is that each of these individuals were children of immigrants, and the San Bernardino shooter’s wife and co-killer was born in Pakistan. The common thread? The lure of jihadism and hatred for the United States. Formal recruiting isn’t required of foot soldiers of radical Islam.
As for the “immigrants” claim, Trump has rightly noted the ineptitude in our bureaucracy and Obama has even made the same assertion himself. That is partly how Obama justified immigration actions he often called illegal. Before he decided to do them purely for political gain.
PRESIDENT CONFUSED OVER WHO THE ENEMY IS
The president then went off on a rant about using the term “radical Islam.” He seems completely perplexed by the fact he has not properly labeled an enemy that is diverse, comprised of different groups, “inspirational”, and global.
Don’t take my word for it. Consider ideas from King Abdullah II of Jordan. If anyone knows the Mideast, this embattled monarch does. At present, the king is trying desperately to keep his small country glued together. The West and the Arab countries appear willing to let this regime fail. It will be at the hands of the West and the Arab countries if it does, and thousands upon thousands of people will die. The king and his countrymen have been consistent hosts for refugees, to their ultimate undoing.
In a remarkable interview in late 2015, King Abdullah II told Isabelle Kumar (Euro News) in 2014 Jordan only got “about 28 percent” of the aid other countries promised. As refugees flooded into Jordan again, one camp, Ruqban, has grown exponentially, and Jordan intelligence knows terrorists are using the refugee crisis as cover.
LEADERS ABROAD LABEL THE ENEMY
“There is an understanding inside of Islam that these are what we call the khawarij – the outlaws of Islam. We are having a better understanding in this dialogue inside of Islam that this is a threat to the very core of our religion. And this is the challenge that I think we have had with the West when many at times were asked: are you a moderate Muslim or an extremist Muslim. No, I am a Muslim, these people are khawarij. And I think this is a debate that has taken a while to happen inside of Islam.”
Nor does the king downplay the threat:
“This is, in my view, a global war; a third world war by other means.” [and]
“It is a franchise, it is a global franchise. There is no difference between any of these groups, they are all the same, they all have the same thinking. And so we have to understand that and we have to be able to think the same way.”
Besides Jordan, Turkey has taken record numbers of refugees, and buy modafinil nzat present because Obama has supported rebel groups whose stature is questionable. And the American people haven’t been told:
“Several photos recently appeared in the media showing U.S. special forces in support roles in a ground offensive wearing the insignias of the PYD’s People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) militias. The incident has drawn reactions from Turkish government officials and social media users in Turkey, with some accusing the U.S. of a hypocritical stance toward Turkey, a fellow NATO ally, even though it recognizes the PKK as a terrorist organization.”
IRAN DECEPTION AND LIBYA
Meanwhile, Democrats’ friends in Iran aren’t happy either, with Iran’s leader, buy modafinil with bitcoinsaying, “Some think that we can get along with the Americans and solve our problems. This is an incorrect idea and a delusion.”
In the Euro News interview, King Abdullah II also noted the chaos in Libya. That country came unglued with direct assistance from Obama and then secretary Clinton.
DEMOCRATS LOVE WALLS—JUST NOT IN THE USA
All these failures and complications aside, there’s something else that puts a giant stain of hypocrisy on Obama. This president has attacked Trump’s ideas about securing the US southern border, including building a wall. Yet Obama has funded buy modafinil canada reddit, including “helping the Jordanian army building a massive security wall that will separate Jordan from Syria.” And Israel, said buy modafinil online india, “is frantically building a new electronic fence along the long border with Jordan.”
On Monday, June 6, a terrorist, said Western Journalism, “killed five members of the General Intelligence Department” in Jordan.
By the end of 2015 as the refugee crisis continued to be debated among the political class, buy modafinil amazon said, “Gulf countries including Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Bahrain have offered zero resettlement places to Syrian refugees.”
Yet this president, aided by Speaker of the US House Paul Ryan, appears comfortable with funding faith-based groups who have built a revenue model on US tax dollars by creating a migration industry using refugees as the sales product.
CAMPAIGNER-IN-CHIEF INSULATED FROM HIS POLICIES
Obama, most members of Congress, and others have personal security and class status insulating themselves and their children from risks the government brazenly inflicts on local communities.
Obama’s performance on Tuesday was a standard “campaigner-in-chief” tactic, designed to attract support for his failed former secretary of state Clinton and to mask his own failures as a junior senator who came to the presidency purely on the basis of cosmetics and theatrical abilities. That is the main reason Obama had to rely on the buy modafinil abu dhabi to fill his cabinet and staff.
Behind Obama’s many failures are Mrs. Clinton’s many failures. His attack on Trump was an effort to deflect attention from that, but only the naïve will buy into what this president is selling.
As it now stands, the federal government has provided for a virtual army of international gang members and potential “outlaws of Islam” to gain power in the United States.
In the future, there will be cultural conflicts even with mainstream Muslims whose faith, regardless of interpretation, permits no holy images to be drawn, still maintains restrictions on women and inheritance by the same, demands “hate speech” laws in violation of the 1st Amendment, and demands treatment so special Obama’s administration took an employer to task because the employer expected his Muslim employees to do what other employees did—deliver goods including alcohol. buy modafinil no prescription. They should’ve been fired and shown the door.
Obama and Mrs. Clinton are insulated from their rash decisions. We regular Americans are not, and it is our children or parents or friends who will grieve the loss of loved ones the next time an Islamist outlaw or Islamist radical or whatever you choose to call him or her strikes.
To date, buy modafinil without prescription to offer sympathy after the Orlando shootings partly enabled by the president’s administration’s failure to address a potential terrorist. This administration had time and resources to spy on and politically disadvantage conservative groups via the IRS. But no time to properly monitor a man who declared he would kill people.
The Orlando shooter, like Obama and Mrs. Clinton, was insulated. He was Muslim, his father was a member of the political class with a hand in Afghanistan politics, and he worked for a top security company providing services to the US government.
Another failure. More dead Americans. And we get a campaign speech from our president whose policy is to put the US last, not first.
Democrats’ solution is to enact more gun control. Doing so will not stop the enemy Democrats’ party refuses to properly label or confront.
By the way, no media commented on Obama’s reliance on notes to make his speech. He is rarely without notes or a teleprompter.
