How to Handle Terrorists

As everyone knows, President Obama has said that they have no strategy to take on ISIS. He takes 20 minutes to give an answer which is nothing more than excuses for what he's not doing. 

Following is a speech from 1986. The speaker is President Ronald Reagan. The highlighting that is in this speech is highlighting that I have done. Can you imagine a President Obama saying these things? I urge you to read this speech: 

My fellow Americans:
At 7 o'clock this evening eastern time air and naval forces of the United States launched a series of strikes against the headquarters, terrorist facilities, and military assets that support Mu`ammar Qadhafi's subversive activities. The attacks were concentrated and carefully targeted to minimize casualties among the Libyan people with whom we have no quarrel. From initial reports, our forces have succeeded in their mission.
Several weeks ago in New Orleans, I warned Colonel Qadhafi we would hold his regime accountable for any new terrorist attacks launched against American citizens. More recently I made it clear we would respond as soon as we determined conclusively who was responsible for such attacks. On April 5th in West Berlin a terrorist bomb exploded in a nightclub frequented by American servicemen. Sergeant Kenneth Ford and a young Turkish woman were killed and 230 others were wounded, among them some 50 American military personnel. This monstrous brutality is but the latest act in Colonel Qadhafi's reign of terror. The evidence is now conclusive that the terrorist bombing of La Belle discotheque was planned and executed under the direct orders of the Libyan regime. On March 25th, more than a week before the attack, orders were sent from Tripoli to the Libyan People's Bureau in East Berlin to conduct a terrorist attack against Americans to cause maximum and indiscriminate casualties. Libya's agents then planted the bomb. On April 4th the People's Bureau alerted Tripoli that the attack would be carried out the following morning. The next day they reported back to Tripoli on the great success of their mission.
Our evidence is direct; it is precise; it is irrefutable. We have solid evidence about other attacks Qadhafi has planned against the United States installations and diplomats and even American tourists. Thanks to close cooperation with our friends, some of these have been prevented. With the help of French authorities, we recently aborted one such attack: a planned massacre, using grenades and small arms, of civilians waiting in line for visas at an American Embassy.
Colonel Qadhafi is not only an enemy of the United States. His record of subversion and aggression against the neighboring States in Africa is well documented and well known. He has ordered the murder of fellow Libyans in countless countries. He has sanctioned acts of terror in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, as well as the Western Hemisphere. Today we have done what we had to do. If necessary, we shall do it again. It gives me no pleasure to say that, and I wish it were otherwise. Before Qadhafi seized power in 1969, the people of Libya had been friends of the United States. And I'm sure that today most Libyans are ashamed and disgusted that this man has made their country a synonym for barbarism around the world. The Libyan people are a decent people caught in the grip of a tyrant.
To our friends and allies in Europe who cooperated in today's mission, I would only say you have the permanent gratitude of the American people. Europeans who remember history understand better than most that there is no security, no safety, in the appeasement of evil. It must be the core of Western policy that there be no sanctuary for terror. And to sustain such a policy, free men and free nations must unite and work together. Sometimes it is said that by imposing sanctions against Colonel Qadhafi or by striking at his terrorist installations we only magnify the man's importance, that the proper way to deal with him is to ignore him. I do not agree.
Long before I came into this office, Colonel Qadhafi had engaged in acts of international terror, acts that put him outside the company of civilized men. For years, however, he suffered no economic or political or military sanction; and the atrocities mounted in number, as did the innocent dead and wounded. And for us to ignore by inaction the slaughter of American civilians and American soldiers, whether in nightclubs or airline terminals, is simply not in the American tradition. When our citizens are abused or attacked anywhere in the world on the direct orders of a hostile regime, we will respond so long as I'm in this Oval Office. Self-defense is not only our right, it is our duty. It is the purpose behind the mission undertaken tonight, a mission fully consistent with Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.
We believe that this preemptive action against his terrorist installations will not only diminish Colonel Qadhafi's capacity to export terror, it will provide him with incentives and reasons to alter his criminal behavior. I have no illusion that tonight's action will ring down the curtain on Qadhafi's reign of terror. But this mission, violent though it was, can bring closer a safer and more secure world for decent men and women. We will persevere. This afternoon we consulted with the leaders of Congress regarding what we were about to do and why. Tonight I salute the skill and professionalism of the men and women of our Armed Forces who carried out this mission. It's an honor to be your Commander in Chief.
We Americans are slow to anger. We always seek peaceful avenues before resorting to the use of force -- and we did. We tried quiet diplomacy, public condemnation, economic sanctions, and demonstrations of military force. None succeeded. Despite our repeated warnings, Qadhafi continued his reckless policy of intimidation, his relentless pursuit of terror. He counted on America to be passive. He counted wrong. I warned that there should be no place on Earth where terrorists can rest and train and practice their deadly skills. I meant it. I said that we would act with others, if possible, and alone if necessary to ensure that terrorists have no sanctuary anywhere. Tonight, we have.
Thank you, and God bless you.

Obama Continues to Fail

Please read the quotes from Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“Whether the deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon,”  And this, “Even after this deal, our policy toward the arrogant U.S. will not change. We don’t have any negotiations or deal with the U.S. on different issues in the world or the region.”

While he was saying those words, his audience was shouting, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,”

This wasn’t before the negotiations or even before negotiations were set up. This was on Saturday, July 18, 2015. Nearly a week AFTER the President agreed to the deal with Iran!

During his news conference, President Obama scolded CBS correspondent Major Garrett for the way he questioned the President about the Americans being held hostage and then said this, “Now, if the question is why we did not tie the negotiations to their release, think about the logic that that creates. Suddenly, Iran realizes, you know what, maybe we can get additional concessions out of the Americans by holding these individuals. It makes it much more difficult for us to walk away if Iran somehow thinks that a nuclear deal is dependent in some fashion on the nuclear deal. And, by the way, if we had walked away from the nuclear deal, we’d still be pushing them just as hard to get these folks out. That’s why those issues are not connected. But we are working every single day to try to get them out, and won’t stop until they’re out and rejoined with their families.”

First of all, why would we even arrange for any negotiations with Iran? They are the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world! Second, if Iran wanted to negotiate, wouldn’t it make more sense to tell them, “if you ever want to have any sort of relationship with the United States, you will FIRST release the hostages that you have that are Americans! Then MAYBE we'll consider talking. Now that we'll lift sanctions and give Iran over $120 Billion, does that make us financing terrorism? I thought that was illegal. 

Third, if they did release the hostages after our leader said something like that, the first time that an Iranian government official said anything like “great satan” or “death to Israel” or death to America”, why didn’t Secretary of State Kerry say to them, “you’re obviously not serious in wanting to co-exist with the United States nor our friends in Israel, so the talks have now ended.”

In addition, even without the hostages release, Iranians were saying these things. Why weren’t the talks ended immediately? Obama calls it “their spin”. Is he really that stupid??!!???

Following the agreement with Iran and Obama’s press conference, we had four marines an one navy serviceman killed in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The President didn’t say that we’re going to find out all we can and then make those responsible if more than just the gunman pay for their actions. Instead he said we’d assess the situation and take further precautions. Tonight, in a marine magazine, they are reporting that marines are not to wear their uniforms. We are now putting our military in hiding??

President Obama has stated that Global Warming or Climate change is a national security threat. He has said that government health care saves lives. He has called ISIS a JV team. Now we find out that our military is not allowed to carry weapons!

Well, Mr. President, the so-called experts on global warming that you keep referencing are now saying that sun will go to sleep in a few years possibly putting us into an ice age. Your health care that military personnel have didn’t save the lives of those five brave souls that we lost in Tennessee. If ISIS is the JV team, and they are bringing their attacks onto our soil, does that mean under your administration that we have a little league team?  Could you at least issue sling shots to our military so that they are at least not looking like ducks in a shooting gallery?

The local police are the ones that shot and killed the shooter. That seems a little backwards that the police departments are the ones protecting the military rather than the military protecting the country on our own soil. These men and women fight gallantly abroad, does this president think they can’t do so at home? Yet, he’s cutting 40,000 troops from the budget in the midst of a war.

This President must believe that his way will change the hearts and minds of our enemy so that they won’t attack others. He must want all to gather around and sing kumbaya and all will be well. He hasn’t got a clue that these terrorists want to kill Americans. But the terrorists have a clue. They are recruiting our kids through twitter and facebook. We cannot depend on the government. We need to know what our children are doing. 

He couldn’t get the guns away from the American people so he disarms the military. We’ll need our guns when the terrorists decide that they can now start shooting civilians on our own soil.

So what is President Obama doing? He’s rushing to create a database of all of this nations citizens to see that all cities are equally represented by each race. You can read that story here:

Any city that isn’t aligned with the proper (according to him) amounts of each race will lose federal funding. This is what he worries about when there are terrorists that are trying to kill us?

Since the President of the United States is ordering those that he has access to to hide from would be attackers, then it must be up to the American citizen to hang signs in their windows and on their backs that tells terrorists to make sure their first shot counts because we will shoot back! Unfortunately, the one guy in this nation that should say it, doesn’t have what it takes to stand up for the American people as he was elected to do.

You’re welcome to comment.

Undocumented vs Illegal

Do you remember Henry Louis Gates Jr.? He was the professor that couldn’t get into a house he was staying in by the front door. He had to enter through the back door. The front door was jammed. Someone saw him trying to force the front door open and called the police and said there may be a burglary taking place. The police showed up and found Professor Gates inside the home. The matter was settled despite Gates being belligerent with the officer. Gates didn’t let up, claiming that this was only happening because he’s black. After repeated warnings that Gates was being disorderly and to calm down, the officer eventually arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct. The charges were dropped a few days later. Professor Gates spent four hours in custody.

President Obama entered the fray saying that the Cambridge police acted stupidly. Then held the “beer summit”.

Trayvon Martin was walking in a neighborhood his father lived in but that he didn’t live in. He was spotted by a neighborhood watch citizen and it was called in. A neighborhood that had recently had some break ins. The neighborhood watch man was George Zimmerman. Martin saw Zimmerman and as the trial showed, it was Martin that was on top and banging Zimmerman’s head on the sidewalk. Zimmerman pulled his gun and shot Martin who died.

President Obama said that if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin. The Justice Department investigated, even contributed to the State’s case against Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted. The Justice Dept then resumed their investigation and concluded that they could not prove a racial bias in the incident on the part of Zimmerman.

Michael Brown stole some cigarellos from a convenience store. A short time later, while walking down the middle of the road, a police officer asked him and his friend to get off the street and onto the sidewalk. Brown became belligerent. He then attacked the officer and tried to get his gun. Brown ran away, then turned back to the officer and charged at him. The officer pulled his gun and fired and killed Brown.

President Obama sent three representatives from the White House to Michael Brown’s funeral. The Grand Jury wouldn’t indict the officer. The Justice Dept cleared the officer of any wrong doing. The officer resigned.

Then there’s the case of Freddie Gray. Still pending. He died while in police custody after running from police. This set off a riot in Baltimore, Md. The Mayor said to let the businesses burn and told the police to stand down. The State Attorney, married to a councilman in Baltimore, said she’d get justice for Freddie Gray. Not for the city, or the people. Not blind justice but justice for Freddie Gray, who may be guilty of at least fleeing from police  and has been convicted in the past. The new Attorney General has also had some involvement although we’ll get those details later as the trial develops. Six police officers are charged and will be put on trial. The White House sent three representatives to Gray’s funeral.

Now we have Kathyrn Steinle murdered on a pier in San Francisco. She did not have a shady past. In fact, everywhere she’s been she’s been an inspiration to others. She wasn’t approached by police. She didn’t have a confrontation with anyone and she wasn’t belligerent with anyone. She was walking along the pier with her father. The only words she reportedly said were to her father. When the shot rang out, she dropped and she said “Dad, help me.” He tried desperately to save his daughter’s life. She died soon after at the hospital.

Kate Steinle’s only action was to walk on the pier with her father. An illegal alien, shot her. He has said he didn’t single her out. He just shot and she was the one that died. That illegal alien has been in and out of prison in the United States several times. He has been deported and illegally returned at least five times. He purposely went to San Francisco because it is a Sanctuary city. A place where illegal aliens are protected from deportation and arrest.

President Obama has made no public comments about this murder. He’s made no comments about the Sanctuary City problem. He’s made no comment about illegal aliens. He sent nobody from the White House to Kate Steinle’s funeral. The Justice Dept is not investigating this murder. The only government officials to say anything about this is the City of San Francisco blaming the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the city having to release the murderer they had in custody, and ICE has said that San Francisco never honored ICE’s Detainer where they should have been notified before this murderer was released so they could take him into custody.

It’s reported that we have 11 million illegal aliens in this country (or 30 million if you listen to Geraldo Rivera). Although they call them undocumented immigrants.. The excuse for having them is that “we can’t deport all 11 million.” I’m really tired of hearing what we “can’t” do.

On the other hand, President Obama is taking claim for more deportations than any President in history. However, the numbers are skewed because when they do catch some illegals coming across, the border, they send them back right then and call it a deportation.

Calling them undocumented is a untrue as well. This guy that killed Kate Steinle has more documents than I do. They have documents showing he’s been in prison in this country for 14 years at various times. They have documents showing he’s been deported and that he’s crossed the border illegally again. They’ll call him undocumented but then tell you in the next breath that he has a rap sheet as long as your arm. That would indicate documents!

The Presidential race is now rife with illegal immigration thanks in no small part to Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not tactful with his speeches. He’s not a politician. He speaks the truth as he sees it and it seems that nobody can refute his words, they can only complain about how he puts words together.
The others, mainly Jeb Bush preach about a pathway to citizenship. There is a pathway to this country. The paths are clearly marked. We have laws. If you want to come to this country, we welcome you, but we welcome you to come across legally. The path is the border crossings where there are security people to talk with as you come across. If you choose to sneak across, you’re not coming here legally.

Apparently, we’re supposed to feel sorry for those that sneak across the border illegally. It’s okay to break our law about how to get to this country. Well, we’re now seeing the ramifications of our leaders ignoring the laws they are sworn to uphold. Kate Steile was murdered because our border is not protected. It’s so unprotected that this murderer was able to get here at least five times.

Why do we need to pass more laws to secure the borders? We have laws now that they are not enforcing, why would we want to write more laws when they can’t or won’t enforce the current laws?

The current administration is a joke to say the least. They really have no concept of what’s right and wrong. There will be a price to pay. At some point a terrorist is going to cross the border and do something here. Then we MIGHT get some action about keeping illegal aliens out and getting the illegal aliens out that are already here. But not until it’s cost numerous more Americans their lives in a blatant terrorist attack. Maybe we’ll get lucky and nothing will happen before we get a new President and that new President will actually do as he says and really close off the borders. But I suspect that of the 16 Republicans running, none will do anything about border security. If Hillary is elected, she’ll only appoint staff workers to line the border and hand out voter registration cards as each illegal alien crosses the Rio Grand.

You’re welcome to comment.
