Obama’s delayed, disappointing speech and UPDATE

Some long and hard thought was given to writing about Barack Obama’s speech, (video) delivered from the Oval Office on Sunday evening.  Several problems arose. Looming largest is the fact that his arrogance and conspicuous disregard for the United States of America — the nation he is supposed to be leading —- make it difficult to scrutinize his words using more integrity than he exhibits. Obama waited from Wednesday morning until Sunday night to address the jihadist terror attacks that killed 14 and wounded 21 others attending an office Christmas Party in San Bernardino.

Since clenched teeth and keyboard dexterity don’t go hand in hand, we gutlessly backed off that particular post.

As it turns out, that decision was a stroke of luck for the readers of Seeing Red AZ. Thomas Sowell did an extraordinary job in coolly analyzing, “The President’s Speech.”

If you are up to watching Obama broaden his gun control rhetoric or cunningly discuss the illusionary “65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition” against ISIS — which he persists in calling ISIL — the link in the first sentence will transport you to Obamaland, where heinous acts of terrorism are facilitated by…..climate change.

Americans are becoming weary of being told that Islam is a peaceful, tolerant faith merely plagued by a few extremists. Increased gun sales in the wake of bloody violence carried out by radicalized Muslims clearly point to angst among our own citizens.

Citizens looking for inspired leadership from the President of the United States, continue to be painfully disappointed. You’ll find far greater wisdom from Dr. Thomas Sowell.


Independent Journal headlines “Muslim Group Calls Out PC Culture for Being too Afraid to Take Down Islamic Extremism,” featuring an interview with Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. an Arizona physician and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Take time to listen to his reasoned thoughts on the problems we face.

    Thomas Sowell and Zuhdi Jasser should be instructing Barack Obama. They understand the dangers posed by Jihadi terrorists and Obama only sees political correctness as it relates to Muslims.

    litmus test?

    Let’s put this idea to a test – get the word out to everyone in the country. Will t-shirts with pigs emblazoned on them work?

    Thomas Sowell’s words are great. Zuhdi Jasser is always terrific.
    But we need to move forward on the Muslim issue and fast. No “moderate” Muslims ever come forward to help in how they’re viewed by those who see only radical behavior. CAIR (which has documented ties to Hamas) is out there all the time – fighting our system – and winning. I wonder if there is a moderate side of Muslims worldwide. Americans are constantly criticized and talked down to by our politicians in both parties. Today, it’s Paul Ryan and Dick Cheney. We are afraid. Fresh off of Paris and San Bernardino – we’re scared. Obama’s 13 minute temper tantrum did absolutely nothing to allay our fears. He said we shouldn’t demean Muslims. Like we’re children.

    Rather than move forward with stopping this war on “non-believers,” Donald Trump is being attacked from all sides. Shouldn’t that flak be going toward stopping the problem of Muslim terror. Are we doing anything about Muslim immigration, the porous border, keeping Americans safe? Obviously, it’s more fun for the Republicans, Democrats and mainstream media to attack Donald Trump for saying what many, many Americans believe.

    Here’s yet another vantage point people wonder about:
    Is Our Stoner President Mentally Impaired?

      They will do everything in their power to stop Trump, including this phony indignation over terrorist.

      Trump is siding with American Citizens AGAIN, the establishment again siding with foreigners and lobbyist.

      1) if you are not a citizen or not currently in this country, you HAVE NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. In other words if you are not a citizen and you are in another country you DO NOT have a right to come here.

      2) Everything we stand for and believe in deals with protecting our nation and our people, just as we have stopped immigration from people we have been at war with in the past, and utilized immigration laws to prevent harm from whomever we perceive as being a threat.

      The fools who say we cannot stop immigration to protect the citizenry are nuts. We have in the past and should be now.

      This is the same type of garbage spewed by fools who say we cant deport illegals.

      This too is complete Anti-American Citizen bovine excrement, we can and must deport illegals too. We have had several periods of deportment for the betterment of the nation, people somehow forget operation wet b@ck and also the mexican repatriation.

      Have all the pandering politicians forgotten this too in their thirst for slavewager lobbyist bribes and democrat voter recruitment? No we know you havent forgotten it, but your donor/owners have bought and paid for you to do what they want despite the damage it does to American Citizens.

      There is precedent and law to do whats best to PROTECT the citizens of this country, we have restricted immigration on numerous occasions, just as we have deported illegals throughout our history. I would argue that we have every right to restrict immigration for whatever reason we choose, if they are not citizens or in this country they have NO constitutional rights, no “equal” protections.

      There is no “right” of ANY foreigner to come to this country, so if for whatever reason we stop them we are in no way violating anybody’s rights and the constitution in no way applies to them. We even have laws restricting people from coming here if we choose to stop them, and they are very broad and encompassing:

      1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, otherwise known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 was meant to exclude certain immigrants from immigrating to America, post World War II and in the early Cold War. The McCarran-Walter Act moved away from excluding immigrants based simply upon country of origin. Instead it focused upon denying immigrants who were unlawful, immoral, diseased in any way, politically radical etc… The McCarran-Walter Act was a strong reinforcement in immigration selection, which was labeled the best way to preserve national security and national interests.


      (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

      Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate

      There is NO question islamic terrorist want to and have KILLED Americans in the United States and countless others seek to do more of it, it is our right , no it is our RESPONSIBILITY to do everything we can to stop these wackjobs from getting into our country, and if already here to boot them right out the door.

      The VERY SAME THING is true of illegal alien invaders, who have killed and damaged Americans on American soil far more than Terrorist have so far been able to.

      Illegals have caused FAR MORE harm to American Citizens in this country than terrorist have, and then you also have examples of terrorist who are also illegals, several of the 9/11 terrorist were visa overstays aka illegals. However they will do nothing about illegals because the lobbyist own the politicians:

      According to the GAO over a seven year period illegal aliens MURDERED over TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND in the United States and committed just under SEVENTY THOUSAND SEX CRIMES, and TWO HUNDRED THIRTEEN THOUSAND ASSAULTS.

      Yet most D.C. politicians AND ALL of the Presidential candidates except Trump want to keep them here.


      And THIS is just the issue of some of the violent crime and illegals, it doesnt even begin to address the COST of illegals to american citizens financially. Every deported family of illegals save the U.S. $700,000.(breitbart) when you add up jobs, depressed wages, schools, hospitals etc… the burden is YUGE.

      We also need to consider apportionment of electoral votes and congressmen go by population, not number of citizens, so we are having our votes nullified and national policy chosen by and/or because of illegals.

      Now, the politicians, clutching their pearls and bags of dirty lobbyist bribes say we cannot nor should we do whats best for American Citizens and our country, and the political class of talking heads vehemently agree, calling us all sorts of horrible things because we have the nerve to say Americans have a right to be safe in their homes, places of business etc….

      Then President Trump comes along, upsetting their apple cart.

      Trump ALONE says deport illegals, build a wall, and now he says hey wait a minute we shouldnt be letting people into this country who might want to kill us.

      For some reason, this is considered to be outlandish and viscerally wrong.

      No, its the very MINIMUM that should be done to protect American Citizens, ALL of the other candidates side with foreigners, murderers and lobbyist bribes over American Citizens.

      This is exactly why we will see Trump elected President.
