Radical Islam and Obama

Yesterday President Obama went on a tirade about criticism for his unwillingness to use the term “radical Islam”.  Striking his usual petty snotty brat pose whenever he responds to virtually any criticism, Obama wondered what good it does to use the term “radical Islam”.  It recognizes reality, you churlish dolt, something that your administration has manifestly attempted to ignore throughout your term in office in regard to the Jihadist threat.  Obama’s strategy, if one can dignify an abdication of responsibility with that term, has been to hope that Islamic terrorism would simply go away.  As in so many areas, the administration’s policies came down to wishful thinking surrounded by lies.  That is why the Obama administration described Major Nidal Hassan’s murderous jihad rampage on November 5, 2009 as “workplace violence”.  Go here to read about it.  That is why the Obama administration in 2012 attempted to blame the Benghazi attack on an anti-Islamic film, and left our men in Benghazi without military support, then lied about it to the families of the two heroes who were slain as a result.  The attack spoiled the Obama re-election theme that the War on Terror had been won and was a thing of the past.


A prime duty of any President is to defend the American people from all enemies foreign and domestic, and in regard to that duty, Obama has been, at best, missing in action.  Colonel Austin Bay at Strategy Page puts it well:



ISIS has claimed responsibility for the June 12 early-morning terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Terrorist Omar Mateen murdered at least 49 people and wounded 53. He held hostages for three hours, until a police SWAT team killed him. 

Mainstream media have focused on Orlando’s proximity to Disneyland. A war is on, you idiots. Look toward nearby Tampa and MacDill Air Force Base, U.S. Central Command headquarters. U.S. CENTCOM is currently supporting anti-ISIS coalition forces in Iraq that are engaged in combat operations against the Islamic State. Welcome to Battlefield America. 

The Orlando attack adds to the deadly list of Islamist militant terror attacks committed since 2009 on targets in U.S. territory. 2009 was the year President Barack Obama dispensed with the Global War on Terror and began describing U.S. counter-terror operations as an Overseas Contingency Operation. He was strategically stupid, but that was the political narrative he simply had to sell. Remember Bush Lied, People Died? 

Well, Obama lied and Americans continue to die. At least the president didn’t call this slaughter “work place violence” or some other feckless politically correct euphemism. Though he called Orlando “an act of terror and an act of hate” he still can’t bring himself to name Islamist militant terrorism as the source, much less the cause of the attack. Instead, he insisted we have “no definitive assessment on the motivation” for Orlando’s massacre.

ISIS media arm AMAQ disagreed: “The armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando…which left over 100 people dead or injured was carried out by an Islamic State fighter.” On June 13, an ISIS radio outlet called Mateen “one of the soldiers of the caliphate in America.” ISIS regards Mateen’s nightclub slaughter as an act of war — war as waged by the Islamic State. Remember, Islamic State thugs rape Yazidi women, execute Iraqi soldiers, behead Libyan Christians and burn Jordanian pilots alive. 

Moreover, Mateen confirmed he fought for ISIS. Before attacking, he called Orlando’s 911 services and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and its leader, Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He also mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers.

It takes narrow, politically blinded minds to believe Mateen perpetrated the Orlando slaughter because he’s suffered micro-aggressions dealt by Islamophobes or the U.S. Constitution gives American citizens the right to bear arms.

Mateen waged war on America. The Caliph was his commander. He was a traitor — use that word. An Orlando nightclub — down the road from CENTCOM headquarters — was his battleground. His premeditated massacre was another Islamist militant terrorist operation against America conducted with the same war aims as the 2013 Boston terror bombing.

Go here to read the rest.  Under this administration, the American people have been left as defenseless for eight long years as the murdered in Orlando.

Calling it radical Islam does not reflect reality, it distorts it. Calling it Islam, Pure Islam, or undiluted Islam – now you’d be getting somewhere.

I say again, if words don’t matter to him, why is he so insistent on calling ISIS ISIL?

I prefer ISIL over ISIS. ISIS covers Iraq and Syria, ISIL covers them plus Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and part of Turkey. Of course IS covers everything, but can be confused with on of Bill Clinton’s favorite words.
I know of apologists for Islam who refuse to use any of them, since “The Islamic State is really not Islamic” in their fantasy world. These people prefer the acronym Daesh. I suppose we should be happy Obama doesn’t use Daesh.

Everything Obama said since early 2008 was a lie. That is everything, all the time. Once you realize this, it all makes sense.

The”L” covers Israel.

Obumbler is an Islamist sympathizer, which is cool with the Left. How many Leftists are condemning Islam for the gay club mass murder?

Bishop Lynch, who has sewer sludge for brains, blamed Christianity. Bergoglio blamed arms merchants.

Stupidity rules the world.

Excellent words Donald: “Striking his usual petty snotty brat pose (the) churlish dolt” and closet Muslim and lying bastard did nothing to allay our fears but only made them worse.
With Hillary in the wings to take over all we can do is pray and perhaps be packing something.

Baby Puppies; Radical Islam; Liar Obama. It is very profitable, like Patton reading Rommel’s book before Patton took on Rommel in North Africa, to read Ibn Khaldun’s The Muqaddimah, An Introduction to History, written by an exceptional Mohammedan scholar and statesman in the Middle Ages. Read all of it. For example:


“In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force. Therefore, Caliphate and royal authority are united in Islam . . . there were dissensions among the Christians . . .They split into groups and sects . . .We do not think we should blacken the pages of this book with discussion of their dogmas of unbelief. This is clearly stated in the noble Qur’an. To discuss or argue those things with them is nor for us. It is (for them to choose between) conversion to Islam, payment of the poll tax, or death.”


I do not see polite discussion or shared dialogue with the alleged majority of peaceful Mohammedans in that list of choices for Christians. Couple what Ibn Khaldun says with the Mohammedan doctrine of permissible dishonesty with infidels – -“Al-taqiyya” – to achieve world domination, the “universalism,” and it is clear that Obama is a fool { no, Obama is not a fool, he is a very smart Harvard educated, Saul Alynsky trained, son of a Muslim father, educated in a Muslim hadassa, sponsored by Palestinian patrons; he is anything but a fool.  Those who voted for him in 2008 and 2012 are the fools }, a closet jihadi, or a pawn. What is also clear is that statist totalitarians like Hillarydemon really think they can use Mohammedans as their useful idiots to quash Christianity here, and then dispose of them later. History will let us know if the present “more equal pigs” here are right, or if the USSA will be taken over demographically as Europe has been.
