  1. Until one of those “not stereotyped” radical Islamic terrorists takes hits at a Holder, Feinstein, Kerry, Boxer, Dean, Pelosi, Reid, or any other number of apologists nothing will happen and American security will continue to slide.
    The thousands of “no go” zones in Europe and here in the states are going to breed more violence and attacks abut thanks to the political correctness nothing will be done. Until it’s too late.

    • I have mentioned to many times. What do the children, relatives, friends now, or even a friend from high school ask these people?
      Do they say, I don’t care about your career, nor your wallet? I care about my future, and the security of America.
      I know darn well, I would be asking at the dinner table!

        • He really does live in a very small bubble with his handler Jarrett and Mooch, neither of whom I would trust to walk my blocky yellow lab around the block. He doesn’t seem to read much, or seriously reflect on the events in the world, or have a sense of how he is perceived.There’s something seriously not right with this guy, something far beyond his destructive politics.

          • Years ago, I thought if I were an advisors, I would suggest taking more pictures of him looking concerned. I suggested placing a bunch of files, paperwork, computer on his desk, and take more pictures.
            I think they don’t even do that out of spite.

  2. K D McFarland made the point that when America was attacked on 9/11 our allies were with us. When they were attacked we were not.

    Leading from behind — cowardice.

    • I never did understand it. Seems to me that the only thing he can do ‘legally’ is extend deportation for two yrs. He gave Dreamers work permits for two yrs which is the same thing he’s doing with illegals. He can’t give them permanent/provisional legal status or ANY benefits without passing an immigration bill, can he?

      Once he passes out permanent or provisional legal status, it’s all over. That’s all the illegals want. They know how to get the rest of the goodies. And they couldn’t care less about becoming citizens or voting, If it wasn’t for Obama pestering them to death, they would never vote.
