Aaron Hernandez Disproves Marie Harf’s ‘Jobs for ISIS’ Theory

imagesOriginally posted at American Thinker

What is taking the lovely and always vivacious Marie Harf so long to implement her much-anticipated ‘Jobs for ISIS’ program?  The deputy spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State had better get cracking, because time is running out. Unemployed ISIS fighters are training in a camp on the Texas border, and allegedly all over the United States Iran has embedded sleeper cells that are wide awake and ready to pounce.

Marie might be dallying because she’s unperturbed about the ISIS situation. After all, she was the one who reassured Americans that terrorists are just frustrated job seekers, so to speak, who, for lack of constructive undertakings, have decided to spend their free time beheading children, genitally-mutilating women, and burning men alive.

Remember, it was also Marie who informed anxious citizens that the way to deal with the violent behavior of terrorists is not to respond in kind, but to provide the “people who join these groups” an opportunity for the type gainful employment that 92 million unemployed Americans who are not terrorists have yet to secure.

It was on MSNBC’s “Hardball” that Marie informed host Chris Matthews that playing hardball with ISIS is not the way to win a war, let alone a war on terrorism.

Instead, Marie shared this:

We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the longer term – medium to longer term – to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups…[like]…lack of opportunity for jobs.

Since the day America’s blondest bespectacled spokesperson shared that peculiar theory, the nation has waited patiently for the rolling out of the jobs initiative Ms. Harf promised would markedly reduce terrorists’ desire, in the name of Allah, to reign death upon ‘the Great Satan.’

We’re still waiting.

In the interim, a domestic disgrace involving former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez may have thrown a bit of a wrench into the liberal notion that violent behavior is rooted in joblessness and lack of economic opportunity.

Aaron Michael Hernandez was just a kid from Bristol, Connecticut, parented by a doting father who, before suddenly passing away in 2006, instilled in both of his sons the need for a good education, a strong work ethic, and the value of developing athletic ability.

In response to his dad Dennis’s sound tutelage, Aaron attended public schools, became a high school honor student and sports star, played college football for the University of Florida, and was a top player for the Florida Gators squad that went on to win the 2009 national championship.

Then in 2010 All-American Hernandez was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. In 2011, the tight-end signed a deal through 2018 worth a maximum of $40 million, with a $12.5 million signing bonus, and $16 million in guaranteed money.

Aaron Hernandez had accomplished the very things Marie Harf suggested would prevent an individual from becoming violent. Therefore, if Marie’s “jobs for ISIS” conjecture is correct, shouldn’t Mr. Hernandez be the last person on the planet to hurt or terrorize anyone?

After all, Hernandez had an attentive father, was afforded every opportunity, and went on to be paid millions upon millions of dollars to do what he was hired to do — play football.

But instead of developing into what Marie Harf claims a person will be when assured a stable future, Hernandez became a kind of domestic terrorist himself. As a result, the former Patriot was indicted in the 2012 double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of 27-year-old landscaper/semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Unlike the victims of the group Marie Harf hopes to rehabilitate with her jobs program, when Lloyd was found in a Massachusetts field his body still had a head. Luckily for Odin, he was not dressed in an orange jumpsuit and locked in a metal cage before being reduced to ash. Instead, Lloyd’s body was riddled with bullets from a Glock .45 belonging to a heartless, terroristic individual who, despite having a well-paying job, lots of money, and a lifetime of opportunity ahead of him, was convicted of first-degree murder.

In other words, judging from Aaron Hernandez’s behavior, the root cause of his violence and subsequent terrorism can neither be blamed on lack of opportunity nor addressed by a well-paying job.

Regrettably for Marie Harf, Aaron Hernandez’s conduct has weakened the State Department spokeswoman’s noble theory that terrorists are terrorists merely because life has handed them a raw deal.

As for Aaron, he probably would have fared far better if he had killed Odin Lloyd while fighting with ISIS. At least then, the domestic thug would have had Marie Harf making excuses on his behalf. Surely, the State Department spox would have found a way to portray the first-degree murderer as a misunderstood soul wandering aimlessly through a land of wasted opportunities and jobless disappointment.

But instead, the 25-year-old tattooed gangsta’ wannabe will live out the rest of his life in a prison far less glamorous than the one in which unemployed ISIS fighters will find themselves after being captured here in America — or as the “nuanced” Marie Harf might see it, ‘recruited for job training.’

MR. PRESIDENT, HOW ABOUT GIVING SOME BACK? America’s #GimmeFive Questions for Obama

Originally posted at CLASH Dailybo-2-300x180

America has endured over five years of pure mayhem that has resulted in a national health crisis that has systematically caused politically-induced high blood pressure and heart failure.

Despite suffering from a cancerous condition that is currently eating away at the very fabric of our great nation, we have a first lady who ignores the obvious illnesses her husband has both literally and figuratively inflicted on otherwise strong Americans. Instead, Michelle Obama chooses to focus on superficial hashtag campaigns that are supposed to encourage a level of health in a nation being slowly poisoned by her liberal husband’s progressive policies.

Not to be disrespectful, but Michelle’s #GimmeFive hashtag effort has about as much influence on the Obama-inflicted poor health of America as a Band-Aid would have on Dana Carvey’s SNL character Massive Head Wound Harry.

Think of it! Here you have a president standing beside his wife in a PSA where she asks tapped-out Americans to #GimmeFive. This from a man who refuses to acknowledge the religious affiliation of Islamic terrorists who remove, at a minimum, five heads a day!

If Barack Obama were looking for five of something, surely ISIS would love to participate in the first lady’s campaign. But the five contributions ISIS would ‘gimme’ to Obama would have nothing to do with planting gardens, dance class, or fruits and vegetables. Instead, on behalf of #GimmeFive, ISIS would deliver five heads an hour to an ever-growing pile of bodiless corpses.

For the rest of us poor schmucks who for the time being still have our heads, #GimmeFive has the potential to take on a whole different meaning.

In fact, if Americans were on the receiving end instead of the #GimmeFive end of the campaign, Barack Obama giving us five of something we need to benefit our health would probably do more for corporate vigor than Michelle Obama demanding that we all Drink Up! five bottled waters a day.

After all, for five-plus years, Barack Obama has been saying #gimme #gimme #gimme to us, and what he hasn’t been able to Constitutionally #gimme, he’s seized anyway.

That’s why, perhaps it’s time America demands Obama extend some of the #GimmeFive he’s selling in our direction.

For starters, how about we demand Obama #GimmeFive fewer tax dollars taken for every $50 in all of our paychecks, or maybe it’s time we ask why #GimmeFive Obama tweeted that 11.4 million people were enrolled in Obamacare when the millions, give-or-take, were more like five.

Then, after the #GimmeFive advocate gets done explaining some of that stuff to us, maybe he can help us improve our national health and mental wellbeing by giving us five good reasons why, despite negotiating with Iran, two Americans – one a pastor and the other a US Marine – whose total years incarcerated add up to more than five, are still rotting in an Iranian jail.

How about Obama explaining to America why, after five years of empty promises, our border remains open, and millions upon millions of dangerous illegals, sick unaccompanied illegal minors, and terrorist types of every stripe continue to sneak in and threaten the safety and wellbeing of our citizens?

And about the unemployment rate, why say that it’s down to 5.6% knowing full well that it’s more like double that?

Can Obama #GimmeFive valid reasons for any of that?

How about five justifications as to why, for the last five years, he’s turned his back on Israel, or here at home increased the national debt by 53%? How about answering the question as to why his #gimme wife goes on approximately five $5 million #gimme taxpayer-funded vacations a year, or why five dangerous Taliban fighters were swapped for one pusillanimous Army deserter?

What about the five specific times your #GimmeFive administration attempted and failed to circumvent the law?

As for the #GimmeFive proposal, here’s another question that needs to be answered: why do Obama and Michelle lunch at Five Guys while government-funded school lunches consist of five grapes, five pieces of dried-out melba toast and five ounces of warm skim milk?

So if Michelle Obama and her husband Barack want to focus on health, maybe they can begin the process by offering a few #GimmeFive answers to some of America’s most gut-wrenching, health-eroding questions.

 

Obama calms children as bees swarm his storytelling

image.adapt_.960.high_Originally posted at American Thinker

Although it sounds a little like a new product for a couch potato suffering from chronic constipation, Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative is celebrating its 5th anniversary of imposing government regulations on a nation that would rather she focus on something besides food.

To celebrate ‘Let’s Move!’ success, the healthy hashtag #gimmefive was added to this year’s theme for the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll.

Amidst all the excitement, in addition to hardboiled symbols of fertility being rolled around on the lawn of a pro-choice president, the first lady thought it would be appropriate to honor the ‘risen Christ’ by strutting her stuff with the “So You Think You Can Dance” dance troupe in time to a rhythmic rendition of “Uptown Funk.”

Then, in keeping with tradition, despite Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi being nowhere in sight, Barack Obama took to the Story Corner to read a cautionary tale by Maurice Sendak entitled “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Adhering closely to the tradition of prior years, the president sat down to read to the children. Unfortunately, before Obama could finish the 338-word story, a swarm of bees came in for the kill.

Not for nothing, as they say in Brooklyn, but did you ever notice that the president attracts ‘wild things’ like bugs, rats and, on more than one occasion, buzzard-sized flies?

This time, the same guy who reassured America that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan” attempted to calm the children dodging the dive-bombing bees with the comforting words, “Oh no, it’s a bee. That’s OK, guys. Bees are good, they won’t land on you. They won’t sting you, they’ll be OK.”

That’s right, while Kenyan Christians massacred by the Somali-based al-Shabab terror group were being buried and Iran restated their commitment to the destruction of Israel as being “non-negotiable,” Barack Obama spent a busy Monday morning quelling the anxiety of children being menaced by bees.

Clearly ignoring the president’s insistence that bees, like ISIS, are just harmless JV team players, the children continued squealing, which inspired the president to kick it up a notch, yelling, “Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!”

If this same group of kids realized that six years earlier the guy telling them not to be afraid of bees was the same person who would have enthusiastically funded the termination of their lives, it wouldn’t be bees the frightened children would have been stampeding to avoid.

Nevertheless, to reinforce the belief that bees notorious for stinging don’t sting, America’s most famous raconteur proved his point with a story about a badly behaved lad who, after being sent to bed without supper, dresses in a wolf costume.

Maybe the president finds “Where the Wild Things Are” inspiring because it reminds him of his own fantastical journey into the make-believe world of “Hope and Change.”

Think of it! Like America, Max’s room “fundamentally transforms” into a jungle. Obama flies on Air Force One and Max sails to an island populated with malicious beasts called Wild Things.

Obama bullies politicians and Max intimidates creatures.  But above all, similar to Barack Obama, Max is eventually acknowledged as the king of Wild Things who, before returning home to his supper, spends all his time cavorting with his subjects.

So that was Easter 2015 at the White House.  Before subjecting the kids to the excruciating sight of Michelle shaking her groove thing to “Uptown Funk” on the holiest of all Christian holidays, Barack Obama reaffirmed his empathetic nature by referring to small children terrified by a swarm of attacking bees as “Wild Things.”

NUKES AND PIZZA! How Obama can Help ISIS Be More Politically Correct

pizza-300x180Originally posted at Clash Daily

Barack Obama is negotiating with Iran and moving America toward an agreement that allows the terrorist state to obtain a nuke on a “phased plan.” A “phased plan” with Tehran is like reassuring potential victims that a psychopathic murderer is on the loose in their neighborhood with a Nerf gun, but not to worry because cops have a “phased plan” to provide the killer with a machete.

In other words, with the help of Barack Obama, Iran will graduate from being unable to annihilate Israel or do serious damage to the US, to being a formidable danger. And while that will certainly be disastrous in some ways, if Iran does lob a nuke at America, while widespread radiation poisoning will stress the system, all the dead people will lead to huge savings on healthcare.

Meanwhile, with Iran under control, ISIS still remains somewhat of a threat to the world.
In fact, right now ISIS’s attention seems to be directed toward Syrian Christians, 90 of whom they just kidnapped and will likely either decapitate or set ablaze, which, based on Barack Obama’s lackadaisical reaction to such atrocities, falls under the Hillary Clinton motto of “what difference, at this point, does it make?”

However, based on some of the dangers ISIS is broadcasting via Twitter, there do seem to be a few things the president can do to quell the problem, such as a kinder, gentler application of outreach and social justice.

At the recent “Solution to Violent Extremism” summit, Obama pointed out that he’s of the opinion that terrorists have genuine complaints and believes “legitimate grievances” can be addressed by communicating, engaging, mentoring, educating, partnering with, and supporting genocidal jihadists.

In an ironic twist, ISIS actually validated Obama’s strategy, indicating that remediation of the reprobate does have some credibility.

Take for instance ISIS’s recent vow to conquer Rome and “throw homosexuals off of [the] leaning tower of PIZZA.” In some circles such a proclamation might be disturbing, but to Obama, threats are often just desperate cries for help that need to be responded to in thoughtful ways.

Clearly, ISIS confusing Pisa (or pizza) with Rome indicates the group has members who are geographically challenged. But with Obama in charge, ISIS could be marching in the right direction once and for all. Besides, who better than the president who traveled to 57 states – not counting Hawaii and Alaska – to inform the terrorist group that the Tower of Pisa is located in the city of Pisa, which is four hours from the city they are threatening to conquer and pillage?

Moreover, promising to throw gays off an ancient south-leaning building may require specific intervention that, in lieu of an appropriate jobs program, includes things like architectural diversity, how to grasp geographic whereabouts, sensitivity training, education, and healthy eating.

Another red flag is that ISIS has chosen a building that falls into the disabled/handicapped category, which indicates the group is exploiting a structure that has already suffered 822 years of being the butt of jokes. Insensitive cartoonists have mocked architect Bonanno Pisano for eons, saying that he either had one short leg or a crooked neck.

Either way, the bottom line is that if ISIS wants to grow in respectability, they can’t give preferential treatment to members of the exclusive LGBT community.

ISIS singling out gays and lesbians as recipients of special treatment could be interpreted as favoritism. Choosing only one group over other historically underrepresented groups of people lacks the type of fairness Barack Obama specializes in.

It’s unclear what ISIS is eating, but it’s a dead giveaway that by mistaking Pisa for pizza, ISIS has pizza on the brain. Thankfully, after addressing ISIS’s tactlessness, helping them to get their geographic bearings, and schooling them on how to be more inclusive, there’s still education and healthy living.

Threatening to throw homosexuals off the “leaning tower of PIZZA” is sort of like ISIS threatening to throw adulteresses off the 47th floor of the Waldorf Salad Hotel.

Still, there’s a good chance that Michelle Obama, maven of healthy school lunches and superintendent of America’s “culture of health”, could address the ISIS pizza issue and make respectful and culturally-sensitive food suggestions to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on how to steer his soldiers toward healthier choices.

Last but certainly not least is the misspelling of Pisa, which indicates that Abu Abdulla Britani, also known by his twitter handle @abu_britani2, who tweeted out:

tweet

…may very well be a hapless victim of educational inequality.

State Department spokesperson Marie Harf has already informed America that “we can’t kill our way” out of war against ISIS. That’s why free community college may be the answer to steering enthusiastic young men like Abu Britani away from career goals that include “conquering Rome and establishing the justice of shariah.”

And what better way to shore up our reputation with the terrorist state of Iran than to suggest giving ISIS combatants refugee status in America with the promise of free community college?

So there you have it. Barack Obama’s War on Terror includes a bomb for Tehran and some politically-correct suggestions on how to school ISIS on civility.

ISIS — ‘If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit’

SimpsonOriginally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama steadfastly refuses to identify radical Islam as the driving force behind the mayhem massacring its way through the Middle East and nearing Europe with an eye toward America. With shovels in hand, blades sharpened, and petrol cans filled to the brim, it feels as if the enemies of all that is good and holy have been given an unspoken approbation to accomplish their malevolent ends.

The most disturbing thing about that scenario is that approval to do so has been subtly granted by a malicious president whose lack of outspoken condemnation can only be interpreted as unspoken commendation.

The only way to describe how infuriating and confusing the current state of affairs is in America is to imagine how it would feel to be in a courtroom with a serial killer who murdered someone you love. Then imagine hearing the judge, without explanation, slam down the gavel, drop all the charges, and allow the killer to go free. After hearing the judge’s verdict, then imagine the psychopath turning, locking eyes with you, winking, and giving the stunned courtroom an evil grin.

Although a harsh comparison, it’s not so far-fetched when discussing the lack of castigation Barack Obama has expressed for serial killers such as Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortion doctor who snipped the spinal cords of full-term, born-alive babies in his Philadelphia clinic.

In Obama’s world, beheading whimpering babies’ in the name of choice is apparently an acceptable activity.

On the international level, the president, no fan of Israel, has also refused to condemn Palestinian terrorists who threw a Molotov cocktail at a car full of Israelis merely because they were Jewish. Sitting in a seat of self-exalted judgment, Obama is also perversely tepid in his criticism of Iran, a nation that has made it clear that once secret negotiations with the White House are complete and they have the bomb they’ve been dreaming of, they will immediately commence attempting to wipe the Jewish nation off the face of the earth.

If one observes closely, Obama’s opinion is made evident not only in what he says, but in what he doesn’t say.

Already proving that if he can sully the reputations of political enemies, law enforcement officials, crusading right-wing extremist “bitter clinger” Christians, or land-grabbing Israeli Jews, Obama is more than willing to have his gavel come down on the side of the guilty.

Yet if the opportunity arises to condemn the alleged killer of innocent Muslims or to presume innocence based solely on race or ethnicity, Obama can be counted on to seize it.

Meanwhile, 21 Coptic Christians were martyred on a Libyan beach and Barack Hussein took almost four days, $2.5 million, and a completed golf trip to acknowledge that the blood that seeped into the sand and sea flowed from the headless bodies of ‘People of the Cross.’

As for the Jews killed in a Paris market, Obama referred to them as a “bunch of folks in a deli in Paris… randomly” shot to death by “a bunch of violent vicious zealots.”

For most, it’s disheartening that the President of the United States reduces murdered Jews to “a bunch of folks in a deli” and turns their executioners, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” into “a bunch of violent vicious zealots.”

Therefore, irate would be a mild term to describe the indignation many Americans feel as injustices are meted out over and over again by a president whose philosophical leaning seems to be to exonerate the guilty at the expense of the innocent.

And as inexplicable an attitude as that might be to some, while referring to another famous murder trial in a 2008 interview on ABC Barack Obama gave a glimpse into the reason he refuses to condemn the likes of genocidal jihadists and instead chooses to disparage our ally Israel and write friendly letters to the Ayatollah of Iran.

On ABC’s “Nightline”, then-candidate Obama spoke to Terry Moran about race relations and said this:

You remember when, during the O.J. trial… black and white culture just had these completely opposite reactions and nobody understood it. I’m somebody who was pretty clear that O.J. was guilty.

So the president thought it was “pretty clear that O.J. was guilty.”

But then Obama admitted:

And I was ashamed for my own community to respond in that way, but I also understood what was taking place, which was that reaction had more to do with a sense that somehow the criminal justice system historically had been biased so profoundly that a defeat of that justice system was somehow a victory.

How’s that for insight into why President Obama, in the name of fair-mindedness, has habitually been on the side of unfairness for the last six years?

The president seemed to say that although shameful, the black community’s reaction to the O.J. verdict was justified and his acquittal was some kind of recompense for a justice system that has been “historically biased.” So according to Barack Obama’s twisted sense of social justice, a butcher who nearly beheaded two people successfully beating the justice system and getting away with murder is a victory against profound historical bias.

So when Barack Obama writes in an op-ed regarding the White House Summit on Violent Extremism that terrorists whose religion he refuses to name have “legitimate grievances” against those he views as oppressors, his shameful non-reaction to beheading, shooting, burning, and threatening to unleash a nuclear bomb on Israel starts to make sense.

It also explains why, just like irrelevant shrunken gloves took center stage at the O.J. trial, while Islamic terrorists burn 45 Kurds alive in cages, domestic terrorists and homegrown violent extremists are being talked about at yet another useless White House “summit.”

Clearly, what’s at work here is that, in Barack Obama’s mind, Judaism and Christendom, in all their white and oftentimes European glory, have always been biased against Islam.  Therefore, regardless of how much barbarism and blood is required to defeat those powerful institutions, with a wink and an evil grin an arrogant Barack Obama believes that ISIS, like O.J., merits a belated victory.

 

OBAMA’S, HARF’S ISIS SOLUTION: A Jobs Program?

194123_5_Originally posted at Clash Daily

Just when Americans thought it couldn’t get any more absurd, Marie Harf of the US State Department, the girl with the over-sized eyeglasses who plays tag-team with Jen Psaki, the redhead who often looks like a deer caught in the headlights, proved the sane and logical wrong.

Chatting with Chris Matthews, Marie enlightened the MSNBC host/Obama shill as to the “root causes” of boorish ISIS warriors beheading, burying alive, and burning their way toward Europe and the US via the Middle East.

Marie informed a rapt Chris that the Obama administration disagrees with the rational opinion that barbarians are best snuffed out. Intermittently adjusting her spectacles, Harf informed the cable news host that “We cannot win this war by killing [ISIS].”

Based on that statement, one can’t help but wonder whether Marie and her boss Barry lament the US winning the Second World War by A-bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

So does this mean that godless evolutionists no longer believe in survival of the fittest?

Or maybe “Kill or be killed” no longer applies to situations where murderous wolves are planning to rip out the jugular of any human being who identifies with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob or calls him/herself a “Person of the Cross”.

According to Harf, “We cannot kill our way out of this war,” because like the late Michael Brown, Ismaayil Brinsley, and even Trayvon Martin have proven, unjust “root causes” outside the control of the oppressed can lead certain individuals to act like barbarians.

The “Root causes” theory must be what drives Obama to silently approve of the pillaging and mayhem that follow the killing of a police officer or why, in the case of ISIS, liberals absolutely refuse to condemn their horrific mass murders.

Based on Marie Harf’s comments on Hardball, Obama and Co. must have attended a colloquium to discuss the ISIS problem and determined at an academic-like roundtable discussion that the primary root cause for the orgy of genocidal jihad occurring in Iraq and Syria is lack of opportunity and jobs.

So wait – ISIS saws off heads, burns and buries people alive, and Marie Harf of the US State Department suggests a change of heart would occur if radical Islamists, intent on ushering in the 12th imam, were enrolled in a jobs program?

That’s when Chris got a tingle up his leg – but not the kind he got from Obama – and rightly pointed out: “If I were ISIS, I wouldn’t be afraid right now… They can keep finding places where they can hold executions … And nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.”

Then Chris asked the lovely and always vivacious Marie, “Are we killing enough of them?”

Sounding very much like Neville Chamberlain, whose mantra was “We should seek by all means in our power to avoid war, by analyzing possible causes, by trying to remove them, by discussion in a spirit of collaboration and good will,” Marie replied, “We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether […]”

In a brief moment of lucidity, Matthews shot back:

We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?

Apparently, according to Marie, yes, yes we can!

Ms. Harf told Chris that, while the people of the cross’s blood spills into the sand and the sea, the Obama administration, which has weakened the American economy and decimated the US job market, has plans to “work with countries around the world to help improve their governance…[and]… help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people [.]”

So here we are, folks. European Jews are being threatened, spat upon, and beckoned by Bibi Netanyahu to run for their lives into the Ark called Israel while Christians are being decapitated in broad daylight while calling upon the name of Jesus. Meanwhile, a blonde bimbo Obama administration spokes-babe suggests that enrolling ISIS in a jobs program is the answer to genocidal jihad.

If that’s the case, maybe the president should first offer ISIS sanctuary in a Muslim-friendly nation called America. In fact, with the promise of immediate amnesty, he can round up ISIS and airlift them on US cargo planes. Obama can quell their fears by giving the devout refugees a toll-free number to report anyone subjecting them to religious bigotry or threatening the men in the black Ninja outfits with deportation.

Then the president can suggest hiring career-minded ISIS trainees for occupations such as butchersbakers, and gravediggers. Better yet, how about giving the ISIS imports a “shovel ready” job at the IRS tracking down uncooperative, opinionated conservatives and then granting the new hires permission to deal with the insubordinates in any way they see fit?

If those efforts fail to quench the new ISIS immigrants’ thirst for blood, to soothe the savage beasts there are always food stamps, free health care, and a seat of honor next to Al Sharpton at Obama’s next State of the Union address.

Barack Obama: Mortal Flesh Like the Rest of Us

throatOriginally posted at American Thinker

Thanks to the president’s compassion toward anyone who’s not an American, nowadays the simple act of grabbing a grocery cart is akin to licking a tainted Petri dish.

Because of Obama coaxing an invasion by beckoning into our midst millions of illegal aliens, every American is now vulnerable to bacteria and viruses that we lack the immunity to fight. That’s why it’s fair to say that the president is purposely subjecting the nation’s citizens to unnecessary sickness, disease and death.

Let’s admit it: we the little people are essentially helpless.

What’s frustrating for those stranded as a tsunami of doom approaches is the realization that the man responsible for our impending demise is well protected from the maladies we mere mortals are being purposely exposed to.

No one thinks for one moment that Barack Obama will get the respiratory infection Enterovirus D-68, the polio-like germ imported from Latin America that has claimed the lives of about a dozen people, most of whom were small children and infants.

The president can mosey on down to the CDC and there’s never a fear that he’ll come down with hemorrhagic fever, or contract MDR- TB or Chagas, or any other exotic import he’s determined to expose the rest of America to.

As Barack Obama looks the other way and ignores the mayhem, Border Patrol agents warn that M-13 and violent Chinese gangs are among those busting the border. Nor does the president need to worry that one of his so called “Dreamers” will take a shot at him during a high-speed chase like Alexander Gallardo did in Raleigh, North Carolina when he attempted to kill a police officer.

Thanks to Obama’s foolish immigration policy, Americans have things like that, and plenty more, to worry about.

Meanwhile the man fomenting the atmosphere of dread has nothing to fear, because when Islamic barbarians, otherwise known as ISIS, whom some say have already infiltrated our border, eventually make a gory statement in an elementary school or a crowded mall, thank God, at least we know for sure that Obama’s daughters will be spared.

Nonetheless, exempt from the restrictions he’s inflicted on the rest of us via ObamaCare and free from the wait sick and dying veterans were forced to endure, recently the president was in need of emergency medical care.

For those of us gripped with Obama-imposed anxiety, it takes the president being popped in the lip and requiring twelve stitches, or being admitted to the hospital for a two-week old sore throat to remind us that all life is delicate, including Obama’s.

The 49th Psalm says that “man in his pomp will not endure; He is like the beasts that perish.” To the little guy, it may not feel like it, but experience has proven that no man endures, including pompous men with singed esophagi.

As we strain against Obama’s tightening grip around the nation’s throat, quite unexpectedly America finds out that the one who seemed impervious is not shielded after all, because he, like the rest of us, is frail and one day will perish too.

The president falling ill reminds us that position and power do not make one immune to sickness and death.

In other words, Obama may appear to be physically protected from the unwarranted peril and disease he’s exposing the rest of us to, but the truth is that Barack the Inflictor is also subject to the fragility and brevity of life.

In James 4:14 Jesus’s brother writes that like it or not, “no one knows what his or her life will be like tomorrow.” Take for instance our seemingly immortal president fundraising one day and the next day suffering through a fiber-optic endoscopy and CT scan.

It may not seem like it, but all of us, including dead ambassadors, innocents murdered by illegal aliens, those who have needlessly died of Third World diseases, Americans beheaded by ISIS, as well as the ostensibly impervious Obama, are all “just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.”

Could it be that there’s a lesson here for both the oppressed and the oppressor?

Perhaps so, because for the record, acid reflux is when the stomach contents push back up into the esophagus, which causes symptoms such as heartburn and a sore throat.

Is it a coincidence that Barack Obama forces down America’s craw a philosophy and ideology the majority of us cannot stomach and he’s the one who ends up with reflux? After garroting the nation and causing our heart to burn and turning our voices hoarse from crying out in pain, is it somehow fitting that Obama is the one who ends up with a swollen esophagus and burning gullet?

So, rather than thinking up new ways to inflict misery upon the American people, while he heals, it might do the president good to meditate upon the fact that regardless of our station in life, whether president or peon, we are all but flesh, a momentary “wind that passes and does not return.”

As for those of us who feel powerless because our fleeting lives are daily impacted by a man with a raging case of acid reflux, it’s good to be reminded that in the end, the one who holds the power over life and death is God, not Barack Obama.

The Religion of Liberalism and the ‘Killing of Innocents’

In his primetime speech about going after ISIL (with that damned whistling S), a sibilant Barack Obama promised America that “[w]e will degrade, and ultimately destroy” the band of head-chopping thugs that, with each passing day, is growing larger and stronger.  The problem for America is that the president conveyed the message with significantly less conviction than when he promised us that with ObamaCare we could keep our own doctors.

In addition to the unconvincing delivery, Barack was wearing way too much pancake makeup, and he was positioned below drapes that, from a certain angle, created an optical illusion of the president sporting two horns that would turn Beelzebub green with envy.

In his speech Obama made “two things clear,” which, as usual, were anything but.

The first was that even though the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, otherwise known as ISIL, are bitter clingers clinging to armaments and the Quran, according to Obama, they are  “not Islamic,” which is sort of like saying that the Christ in “Christian” has nothing to do with Jesus.

The second, more glaring absurdity was made “clear” when America’s Muslim Apologist clarified for us that “[n]o religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIS’s victims have been Muslim.”

This is not a surprising statement, coming from a man who believes that there’s a religious “war on women” over abortion but doesn’t believe we’re at war with a group whose faith endorses beheading non-believers.

Either way, religion is loosely defined as a “body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices,” which means that a person could be religious about things other than God.

Take liberalism, for instance.  Liberalism’s basic tenets, or “particular set of beliefs and practices,” if you will, center on race-baiting, pushing illegal immigration, harping on “climate change,” and furthering unbridled promiscuity.

Adherents of the religion of liberalism evangelize proselytes to hate the U.S. Constitution, despise capitalism, and fervently revere the holy sacrament of abortion.

As defined, liberalism is a faith to which the president is wholeheartedly devoted.

The fact that high priest Barack Obama, as a central tenet of his religion, condones and even funds abortion serves to discredit the very assertion he made about religion and killing innocents.

Even Joe Biden, who practices the mutually exclusive faiths of Catholicism and liberalism, put a spiritual spin on things recently when he vowed that America “will follow [ISIS] to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice, because hell is where they will reside.”

ISIS believes that killing the innocent gains entry into paradise, and many liberals, despite favoring killing the unborn, eagerly look upward to a future in a heavenly home.

But if Joe thinks that killing the innocent results in the killer going to hell, he should really reconsider his support for the hallowed rite of abortion.

Then there’s the religiously liberal/“practicing and respectful Catholic” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who actually had the gall to say that she considers abortion “sacred ground.”

Meanwhile, although clearly appalled by the beheading of two Americans by a masked murderer with a kitchen knife, if Barack Obama were to go tit-for-tat in a “killing of innocents” competition, liberalism far out-kills ISIS.

With 700 Planned Parenthood churches funded by the government all over America, the dismembering, scalding, and suctioning of 3,000-4,000 innocents a day surely surpasses even ISIS’s busiest day of sadistic barbarism in the name of jihad.

But what Obama’s statement that “[n]o religion condones the killing of innocents” fails to acknowledge is that the fundamental religion he himself follows fanatically spills gallons of innocent blood daily.

Let’s face it – with Islam at its core, ISIS/ISIL hasn’t even come close to the 60 million babies who have been slaughtered here in America on liberalism’s bloody altar, and when it comes to killing in the name of religion, the main difference between ISIS and liberalism is that no one videotapes late-term abortions and proudly broadcasts them worldwide.

Rest assured, if abortions were public spectacles instead of private executions, James Foley’s and Steven Sotloff’s grisly murders would be just two in a daily barrage of religious sacrifices justified by equally committed zealots.

Moreover, Obama’s insistence that “the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim” means nothing, especially since his liberal religion champions the rights of minorities while simultaneously destroying those same minorities in high numbers.

According to the CDC’s latest Abortion Surveillance report:

Between 2007 and 2010, nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the U.S. were performed on black children, even though blacks make up only 12.8 percent of the population. Another 21 percent of abortions were performed on Hispanics, and an additional seven percent on other minority races.

So the president citing Muslims killing other Muslims as evidence that ISIS is not Islamic serves only to further indict himself, because killing the offspring of racial subgroups is what liberals do best.

And which is worse: ISIS killing the enemies of their faith by exterminating the potential seed of Muslims from other sects, or liberals decrying ISIS murdering babies while they themselves terminate hundreds of thousands of future liberals every year?

So once again this president has proven that he knows nothing about a subject that he’s unequivocal about when he’s reading off a teleprompter.

Moreover, despite condemning ISIL, Barack Obama ignores its similarities to the doctrine and practices of his own faith, whose rigidly fundamentalist belief system justifies the killing of many more innocents than ISIS.

Barack Obama’s Chilly Water Dilemma

introductory-titlesOriginally posted at American Thinker

 

America’s anti-atrocity president is on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard again. This year he is a little disappointed that the water of the Atlantic, unlike Hawaii, “is still a little cold.” Regrettably, for most people in the world, the icy beach water of Martha’s Vineyard is not the most pressing problem. Why? Because while the president takes time to decry the unfriendly surf and spend “time with… seals on the beach,” in Iraq a genocide similar to the one Obama identified as evil while visiting the Holocaust Museum two years ago is currently playing out on the world stage.

Speaking of seals — the trained, clapping kind, that is — are amongst those Obama usually feels most comfortable with. That aside, while Barack Obama is participating in Summer Fun Fest 2014, children are being beheaded, young boys crucified, women raped, and Christian men hung or shot at point-blank range after witnessing all of the above.

Come to think of it, if Barack Obama responded as quickly to the ongoing genocide in Iraq as he did to Malia asking him if he “plugged the hole” in the Deep Water Horizon oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico or to the so-called atrocity of terrorists being waterboarded or to Robin Williams’ suicide, maybe thousands of Iraq’s indigenous Assyrian Christians wouldn’t be buried alive in mass graves.

Granted, it is a pity that when Obama arrived on Martha’s Vineyard the water temperature wasn’t to his liking. Add to that all the precious vacation time he’s wasted thinking about the obstinate nature of Congressional Republicans.

Yet if the president thinks he is suffering, maybe he should try imagining the misery he would feel while being forced to helplessly watch a terrorist decapitate one of his children. If the temperature-sensitive Obama wants to talk about how unbearable cold water is, how about having to witness a five-year-old little boy being sliced in half as punishment for the sin of being born to Christian parents?

Icy water is a problem for Mr. Obama? If given the choice between shivering with goose bumps or suffocating while buried alive or, God forbid, watching his wife and daughters gang-raped, which of those three would Obama be likely to choose?

Or how about, as the father of two young daughters, wrapping his head around young women having their genitals sawed away by angry Muslim terrorists wielding used razor blades in the name of Allah?

Man, that’s a vacation buzz-kill. After all, every president has a right to get away for a little down time. And to be fair, this is the man who once challenged a post-Holocaust planet with the “bitter truth” that “too often, the world has failed to prevent the killing of innocents on a massive scale.” Barack ‘Blame Bush’ Obama even admitted that “we are haunted by the atrocities that we did not stop and the lives we did not save.”

That was back in April of 2012 when Nobel Peace Prize winner, Auschwitz survivor, and author of Night, Elie Wiesel, was in attendance when America’s legendary Nobel Peace Prize winner paid a visit to the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC. The remarks made by President Obama also included denouncing the horror of human-rights atrocities and suggesting that memorializing what happened in Nazi Germany could help to ensure that similar crimes against civilization would be avoided in the future.

Obama, who has made a habit of speaking while standing silent, said that day that we — which, by definition, includes him — must “tell our children about how this evil was allowed to happen — because so many people succumbed to their darkest instincts…because so many others stood silent.”

The president even drove home the point that, “In short, we need to be doing everything we can to prevent and respond to these kinds of atrocities — because national sovereignty is never a license to slaughter your people.”

Unfortunately, while Barack Obama is on summer break, the evil he spoke of is unaware that it should take a break too. So, maybe party-boy Obama could just sit one dance number out and spend the time he would have used doing the Electric Slide explaining the whole “never a license to slaughter” concept to those currently butchering their way through northern Syria and Iraq.

In the book Night, Elie Wiesel wrote about his chilling experiences in a death camp. Describing one horror perpetrated on a child by Nazi soldiers that he witnessed, Wiesel wrote “To hang a young boy in front of thousands of spectators was no light matter.”

On the other hand, if the one who could save blindfolded young Iraqi men from being crucified in the noonday sun chooses to spend time searching for a nice fluffy beach towel to warm himself after frolicking in chilly sea water, maybe when compared to Obama’s plight hanging boys is a “light matter.”

Sorry to be the one to have to say it but despite his recent victory lap, Obama complaining the other day about water temperatures in Martha’s Vineyard while the Yazidi starved on Mount Sinjar and innocent people were being brutally slaughtered could be likened to Franklin Delano Roosevelt publicly lamenting a missing cherry on his ice cream sundae while the Nazis were gassing the Jews.

On a smaller scale than the Holocaust, but a holocaust all the same, Barack Obama possesses the power to end the carnage. Yet thus far his effort to save lives and stop the brutality is tepid at best. Instead, as days turn into weeks and ISIS becomes a formidable threat to our homeland, Barack Obama is focused like a laser on busting dance moves at birthday parties, the threat of Republican obstructionism, photo ops, and mourning the disappointing swimming conditions on Martha’s Vineyard.

Obama’s One-sided “No victor/No vanquished” Maximalist Philosophy

UnknownOriginally posted at American Thinker

The definition of a maximalist is a “person who holds extreme views and is not prepared to compromise.” Although he accuses others of being maximalist saboteurs, there is no one who holds more “extreme views,” or is less “prepared to compromise” than Barack Obama.

In an interview with a supporter and defender of progressive-style overreaching government Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, in a piece entitled “Obama on the World,” self-proclaimed moderate Barack Obama talked of Iraq, Putin, and Israel.

The president used the unrest in the Middle East to describe the state of American politics in the following way:

We have so many things going for us right now as a country — from new energy resources to innovation to a growing economy — but we will never realize our full potential unless our two parties adopt the same outlook that we’re asking of Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds or Israelis and Palestinians: No victor, no vanquished and work together.

Obama did not elaborate on whom, in America’s political system, he likens to ISIS, al Qaeda, Hezbollah or Hamas, so one can only guess.

According to Barack Obama, “societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions.” The president said, “At the end of the day… the biggest threat to America — the only force that can really weaken us — is us.” Naturally, that “us” does not include the one issuing the warning.

So, while attempting to explain how American politics are dysfunctional, our doggedly un-self-aware president used Middle Eastern upheaval as a parallel to accuse conservatives of being the very thing that he is — a partisan maximalist.

In essence, Obama was accusing others of doing what he does, which is a classic psychological defense mechanism called projection, where a person assigns to someone else the very same thinking and motivations he himself demonstrates.

Excusing himself from his own failures and assuming zero responsibility for the barrier to political cooperation his own extreme liberal views pose, the underlying message of the interview was that extreme conservative opinions that demand “maximalist” ends are a danger to the country.

Then, after a dysfunctional president described American politics as dysfunctional, he inserted the tried and true ‘diversity’ buzzword into the conversation by contending that “the more diverse the country is, the less it can afford to take maximalist positions.”

While Barry pretends to be chastising ISIS in Iraq by dropping on them what equates to a couple of brightly-colored water balloons, here at home, in the name of diversity he allows gangs of tattooed Mexican hoodlums dressed in army fatigues to roam America’s streets and threaten American lives.

That sort of philosophy works on Obama’s behalf. By imposing a wide variety of illegal interlopers on a resistant public, the president can then accuse those who differ from his extreme views on immigration of xenophobic obstructionism.

Since he was elected, Barack Obama has adhered to the “I won” mentality. Now after six years of shocking ineptitude that has left everything from the economy to the healthcare system to the future of America hanging precariously in the balance the person responsible for the mess has the bald-faced audacity to label those attempting to stop that downward spiral extremists?

On the list of politically dysfunctional maximalists, both in and out of Congress, would be nation-wreckers include extremists like the diminutive governor of Arizona Jan Brewer, whose state the Obama administration sued for trying to uphold immigration law.

How dare Brewer attempt to defend Arizona citizens from a blitzkrieg of sickly, criminal, big government-dependent illegals all of whom contribute to the diversity Obama claims is incompatible with the opinions of conservatives?

Then there’s Governor Rick Perry who, as governor of a state under siege, had to call out the Texas National Guard to protect his people from the tide the president refuses to stem of diseased, lawless humans entering Texas from south of the border.

Other ideological maximalists are Congressmen Darrell Issa (R-CA), and Trey ‘the pit bull’ Gowdy (R-SC). Both these so-called extremists regularly nip at the heels of the IRS scandal, and, every chance he gets, Gowdy handily eviscerates perpetrators with the skilled precision of Edward Scissorhands.

Then there’s maximalist obstructionist extraordinaire Ted Cruz (R-TX) whose The Legal Limit Report No. 4: The Obama Administration’s Abuse of Power, lists 76 of the president’s “lawless” actions. It’s likely that Obama sees the outspoken Mr. Cruz as a major contributor to America’s political dysfunction and a huge part of the problem of why our nation is presently, as the president put it, a nonfunctioning society.

Alluding to Iraq and Israel, Obama reassured Friedman that in the Middle East he is only going to involve the U.S. if “different communities there agree to an inclusive politics of no victor/no vanquished.”

That “no victor/no vanquished” philosophy must be the driving force behind his plans to “provide a unilateral amnesty to several million illegal immigrants, and award them work permits.” Never mind that those sorts of “inclusive politics” fly in the face of an American public that opposes executive action on amnesty and a Congressional community desperately trying to curtail the president’s repeated autocratic maneuverings.

Speaking specifically about the conservative wing of the Republican Party, the president pointed out to Freidman that “Increasingly politicians are rewarded for taking the most extreme maximalist positions… and sooner or later, that catches up with you.”

That sort of catch-up is precisely what Obama is about to experience himself. Because despite his delusional rhetoric, and based on his own all-time low approval ratings in the polls, this November his maximalist positions will catch up with him and the equally maximalist wing of the party he leads.
