As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama to Deliver Oval Office Address on San Bernardino

From the White House:

On Sunday, December 6th at 8:00PM EST, President Obama will address the nation from the Oval Office about the steps our government is taking to fulfill his highest priority: keeping the American people safe. The President will provide an update on the ongoing investigation into the tragic attack in San Bernardino. The President will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it. He will reiterate his firm conviction that ISIL will be destroyed and that the United States must draw upon our values – our unwavering commitment to justice, equality and freedom – to prevail over terrorist groups that use violence to advance a destructive ideology.

Not sure how he will defeat ISIS. Might have something to do with limiting carbon emissions. I guess we’ll find out.

I will live stream the address on White House Dossier.

  1. Too little, too late, Barry.

    You’ve spent the last seven years clowning around on Fallon and Letterman and every other comedy show you could invite yourself on.

    And now you expect an Oval Office speech to be taken seriously? As if.

    You’ve long since cashed out every last bit of dignity from your presidency. This is a CYA speech, and everyone knows it.

    So please…don’t waste your time, or ours, trying to look presidential while reciting the usual shibboleths. That jig was up long ago.

    Go away, Barry. Just GO THE HELL AWAY.

    Like the songwriter said:

    “Because it’s too late, game over, and goodbye.
    No matter what you say or do, it’s over.
    It’s sad, but you won’t see me cry.
    There’s no more me and you; I’m oh so over you.”

  2. The FBI raided the house of Farook’s friend today. Why did they take so long?

    Obama can lecture us tomorrow night until the cows come home but I have no trust or faith in his abilities to keep us safe. He’s rolled out the welcome mat for illegals and terrorists and has no plans to stop any of it. I’ve seen several cartoons and articles now about what if he were president on Dec 7, 1941. Scary to even think about that…

  3. I’m curious – what, EXACTLY, do WHD readers think Obama should do to stop terrorism in America?

    Jerry Falwell Jr. is recommending all Liberty University students should pack heat; what should Obama recommend / do?

        • I don’t know about picking up, but how about cleaning it up–so only real bad guys are on it…How about tightening all visas–incl refugees and quit with the BS about the rigorous vetting–that woman lied on her paperwork, they knew it, but still–hey come on over. How about actually looking for those who have overstayed and inviting them to depart PDQ. Cut out this visa waiver stuff. How about not blaming everything on Republicans–most of which is nonsensical. Or global warming or postpartum depression or … I need a nap.

        • No More from Syria, Iran, Irag, Saudi, Eqypt until we have fully vetted all that are here and have already passed our pathetic screening. NO MORE TERRORISTS!

          • Close all our borders until we clean house. It’s been done before, it can be done now. We have no control anywhere of people who are coming into this country. Evidence of Middle Easterners crossing in the south as well.

          • Finally saw Lynch on MTP–she’s a real Susan Rice! Forget her. The usual nailing Jell-0 to the wall…nothingburger. We are investigating every…blaaaah. Of course she said this is just a small portion who believe in these extreme views and only a small portion of that who act. Well, doesn’t that narrow it down if it’s true–get with it! You guys can say anything you want about HER–and I will agree.

          • Re.Lynch I agree. She is the precursor of all things Obama and FBI on terrorism. The Administration is yet to be convinced, it is “evolving”. She is the Susan Rice of this recent terrorist event.

    • In all seriousness, he could resign and let someone else protect our nation. He has spent the last 7 years dividing right and left, progs and conservatives, apologizing for the past actions of the US, defending every minority despite damning evidence, belittling law enforcement, casting aspersions against any and every one who disagrees with him, and protecting Islam. He is fighting to make his terms in office something of value. And working to make himself worthwhile.
      Perhaps someone has already said this ahead of me, And most likely said it better. I just got here tonight so I haven’t been able to read it all yet.

  4. So in other words “same stuff, different day.” Obama never says anything new, its just recycled diatribe against the American people and the American way of life.
    I’m afraid I will be resealing my countertops at 8:00 this evening, too busy to watch.

    • I as well will not be watching. I took a turn listening to him last week.
      He travels on our dime all over the world and speaks ill of us. Kisses, bows etc. Than he waits days to speak about the terrorist attack.

  5. My Fellow U.S. Persons:

    I am taking this moment away from the War on Climate Change to announce that we have had another ‘setback–one that involves one of my Muslim brothers who was bullied and badgered by his Christian and Jewish co-workers because of his beard and devotion to the Koran.

    As a result, I am declaring War on Islamophobics. Justice will be swift and harsh. You may keep your guns, but I am hereby issuing a ban on the purchase of Ammo….beginning immediately. I am also declaring your First Amendment rights null and void as it pertains to Muslims and Islam. Failure to abide by my Executive Orders will result in traditional Islamic punishment.

    In the meantime, I am increasing and fast-tracking the number of Syrian Muslim refugees into the U.S. I promised you that I would fundamentally transform America–and I intend to keep that promise!

    Allah Akbar!

  6. Unless MrObama can admit that an un-armed citizenry and no-gun zones are ideal terrorist targets, nothing he can say will be seen as an honest picture of life in freedom loving countries today.
    If he even mentions the two words-gun control-during this speech, Monday will be the biggest private gun-sale day in years.
    If he even mentions climate change, the country will finally turn away from him in a dramatic fashion.

    • He’ll be co-opting the terrorist attack to promote his gun control agenda…”If we had better gun control, we could stop attacks like these.”

      Of course, he’ll ignore the fact that they could have blown up the entire building (and more) if they wanted to. What’s next – more stringent controls on the purchase of timers, pressure-cookers, pipes, wiring, and remote-controlled cars??

  7. He’ll probably shred the constitution and the bill of rights live on TV, disband Congress, eat a puppy, burp, turn on his heel, and exit.

    Or he’ll ramble about guns and refugees, and recent mass murders.

    • The second–oh, we are so bad with our fears and negative thinking–why can’t we be more like him… You know why? Because we don’t have bodyguards, our kids venture into the world everyday, his admin can’t even examine a crime scene, all we get is doubletalk and slowtalking.

    • They’ll just say those are jobs American workers won’t do anyway. I just can’t believe how willingly they give away jobs, our money, our safety. :(

  8. On the eve of December 7th, the worst POTUS in American History is going to disrespect the heroism and sacrifice of that day with political platitudes and ideological statements that are the antithesis of the freedoms that came under attack at Pearl Harbor.

    My Sunday column this week is on Chief Petty Officer John Finn. Of the 15 Congressional Medals of Honor awarded that day, his was the only one for actual combat, the others, the no less heroic, were for behavior and sacrifice in rescue efforts:

    As much as I hate to I will watch tonight for no other reason than I’m smart enough to know that the only way to defeat your enemy is to know your enemy.

  9. Interesting Twitter post from CBS. Given the fact that CBS news president David Rhodes is brother to Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security advisor, perhaps their tweet is accurate that the speech will be on gun control.

    CBS News ‏@CBSNews 3h3 hours ago

    Tonight, @CBSNlive streams @POTUS’ urgent address to the nation on gun control at 8 P.M. ET http://cbsn.ws/1Rxwz3J

    • I have no doubt it will be on gun control. Gun control means he can attack the Republicans, ISIS means he has to actually do something.
      And the Rhodes connection is very real and active. Remember, it was CBS news that was up with the “it was the video” Benghazi excuse within hours. A direct line from lil brother Ben.

      • Republicans are the enemy — not ISIS. I don’t know if he will have the balls to demonize them as “Republicans” on prime time national television (I suspect so — but only because he doesn’t care, not that he has anything round or circular)but I suspect “the opposition” to be used. And a possible direct hit on Donald Trump, if not by name, then by some condescending, petulant term.

        If the Dems and the liberals had any real commitment to this, he would call Democrats to turn in their guns and their ammo voluntarily — as an example. And, of course, for the good of their fellow citizens”. But, he won’t and they wouldn’t — hypocrites and demagogues all.

  10. Today is Hanukkah which begins at sundown so I don’t know why he is giving a speech today-he should have given it a few days ago. Tomorrow is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day so that is not a good day either. What is WRONG with him?

    Anyway Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends and customers and especially to Keith.

    • Thanks for the reminders. It is very strange…or maybe not. I was just reading yesterday about how dates are very important to Islamists.

    • What is “wrong” with him, is he truly is an “un-American” President. Look at his upbringing and his mentors. He despises our traditions, he celebrates world government, he is sadly, for lack of any other words: America’s own worst enemy.

      • His discordant use of the phrase “My Christian faith”, which he has used continuously throughout the last 7 years, always makes my skin crawl. It just doesn’t ring true in his case. Never did, and never will.

        • “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” –Cicero, 106-43 BC.

          It’s a very old story, sadly.

  11. Just heard the name of the person who purchased the weapons for Farook – Enrique MARQUEZ (a former neighbor of Farook). He may be the ‘family bombmaker’. He has checked himself into a mental health facility and is not being charged at this time.
    Just wondering if the Mexican (Marquesz) is a Muslim convert, a US citizen, an amnetized illegal, or simply a guy with connections.

  12. As to tonight’s Royal Speech by the Prince of Waffles announced by the White House Town Crier, keep this in mind:

    “His speeches left the impression of an army of pompous phrases moving over the landscape in search of an idea.” ~Author Unknown

      • Yes, perfect. As to why Obama is making this speech when he normally would avoid stepping on potential verbal landmines in times of need or crisis, perhaps his internal polls (the ones the public never sees) show that he is dropping like a stone.

        His handlers, therefore, feel a need to pump some air into his presidency to remind us what a hero he is, how Churchillian he is. Maybe they’ll bring out those Styrofoam Greek columns from storage and set them up behind him and add that old halo to light up his head. I dunno. It’s more of the incoherent behavior we’ve seen from him from the beginning. Whatever the reason, he’s doing it for him and not for us. You can be sure of that.

          • Wouldn’t it be great if someone hacked into TOTUS and made him say things like, “And tonight, Reggie and I are proud to announce our engagement”. Or, “I was born on the star system Circinus X-1, and was brought to your planet many years ago.” Or “Thanks for coming to the press conference. I discovered a new recipe for pumpkin pie and I thought I would share it with you tonight.”

            Something like that.

          • TO Marcus 6:06

            Or, I am here tonight to address our biggest national security concern — Climate Change/Global Warning.

            BTW — I saw a headline on Drudge that says he will stand for the speechifying. Yep, he has a podium right in front of the Resolute Desk. Check out the desk — clean as a whistle as if no one ever used it for work.

          • Grace..yes, Obama, The First Weatherman, will surely speak about the weather. (We’re all doooomed unless we do what Obama demands we do to change the weather.

            Interested irony….speaking of Weatherman, and Bill Ayers and the Weathermen of the ’60’s. Maybe The ‘Bam is confused about the whole topic. It could happen.

          • Marcus says:
            December 6, 2015, 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm

            You could be right they could all be confusing weather with the weathermen of Ayers et al.

  13. ” Government being instituted for the common benefit, PROTECTION and SECURITY of the whole community, and not for the private interest of any one man, family or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public LIBERTY manifestly ENDANGERED , and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the PEOPLE may and of RIGHT ought, to reform the old, or establish a NEW government. The doctrine of non-resistance against ARBITRARY power, and OPPRESSION is ABSURD, SLAVISH and DESTRUCTIVE of the good and happiness of mankind “.

  14. Don’t have to watch because I know what he will say:

    1. Muslims are the greatest people the planet has ever known.

    2. BTW, I’m confiscating your guns and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.

  15. His highest priority is to “keep the American people safe.” Wow, what a whopper. More Alinsky garbage from the Alinsky administration. You know, assert the exact opposite of the truth, rinse, and repeat.

    This administration is transparent, so transparent that their lies stand out like Obama’s Dumbo ears.

    I just don’t know how this imbecile of a “president” is able to show his Mussolini mug to the American people. I’d be getting out of Dodge if I was him.

    • The MSM covers for Obama and throws smoke bombs to hide his motives and actions. They swaddle his motives, actions, background, and associations with thick magic dust to make him appear like the Golden Prince who’s arrived to save us all. They must protect the fantasy at all costs, a fantasy they themselves helped create.

  16. Won’t be watching this. Will be curled up with a good book, or perhaps a game of solitaire.

    Or, perhaps, poking around on CasinoRPG. I’m easy enough to find on there: look where the sun rises over where the angels first landed.

    The only way I could possibly give a single f*** less about Obama’s speech, would be if I had been raised in a monastery.

  17. Listening to Pat Caddell – Loretta Lynch on NBC today said her worst fear is that Muslims will be terrorized!?! Says Muslim children should go directly to the DOJ, not the police dept., if they are being bullied. Not Christian children, Jewish children, Black children…Muslim children.

    There must be a way to throw these infidels out of office NOW! Better yet, throw them out of the country!

  18. There’s a podium set up in front of the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. How lame! Well, we do know he is not accustomed to sitting at a desk.
