Obama: Syrians No More Threatening than Tourists

Has the president lost touch with reality? “The idea that somehow they pose a more significant threat than all the tourists who pour into the United States every single day just doesn’t jive with reality,” Obama said during an appearance in the Philippines. “So my expectation is after the initial spasm of rhetoric, the people will settle down, take a look at the facts, and

Kerry Finds a “Rationale” for Charlie Hebdo Attacks

You see, this isn’t a gaffe. This is how they think. Kerry, President Obama – they believe Muslims have a gripe when they complain about free speech, and that these murderers, while not justified in their actions, aren’t necessarily lunatics looking for reasons to kill Westerners and destroy our way of life.

Feinstein: “ISIL is not Contained”

This is really chilling. Sen, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is a liberal, but I’m impressed that she sometimes does bump into common sense. “I’ve never been more concerned,” said Feinstein, who is vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Never? Not in the days after 9/11? And yet President Obama huffily insists that he’s not going to change his approach, which has brought us to the cusp a

Stopping ISIS: Borders, Guns, and God

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse.

Oops! Obama: ISIS is “Contained”

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous that was conducted Thursday and broadcast Friday — just hours before the Paris attack — President Obama proclaimed that ISIS had been contained. “I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” he said peevishly when challenged by Stephanopolous. “From the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them.” Maybe he meant that they were contained

Obama’s Contradictory, Appalling New Hostage Policy

President Obama Wednesday announced a new policy regarding U.S. hostages that is designed, albeit not purposely, to get more Americans kidnapped and killed. The policy, in short, is that while the government still may not ransom hostages, private citizens can – even though it’s against the law – and will be aided by the government in their “communications” with the terrorists. Obama said as much

Why No Presidential Statement on Garland?

More than a week after an attempted terrorism attack in Garland, Texas that could have killed dozens of citizens had it succeeded, there has been no statement of condemnation from the president. What exactly does this lack of seriousness about the attack say to those planning future assaults against U.S. targets and free speech?
