When he gave the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy in May, Barack Obama, told the graduates who would be risking their lives to protect our country from peril, that he views climate change as the most severe threat to global and national security.
“I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country,” the New York Times reported. “And so we need to act, and we need to act now,” Obama warned the graduating cadets.
Monday he furthered his cause by announcing limits on U.S. power plant emissions, declaring power plant owners must cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030.
Thumbing his nose at criticism that his plan would increase energy bills for Americans, harm the poor, and cost jobs, he dismissively stated, “This is the right thing to do.”
Obama will host Pope Francis at the White House in September. The like-thinking duo are expected to make an urgent joint call for action. Francis will address both chambers of Congress.
Yet according to a Gallup poll, Americans believe the Islamic State group known as ISIS poses the most serious threat to the United States in the next decade. A stunning 84 percent of respondents said ISIS jihadists, who have ravaged Syria and Iraq in their quest for a new Islamic state, and terrorism in general, presented a “critical threat”
Barack Obama still can’t bring himself to acknowledge the radical Muslim component of terrorism. Gallup summarized the February survey findings this way: “In a winter that has seen acts of unspeakable terrorism…Americans are clearly concerned about Islamic militants and terrorists.”
The second most serious threat considered was the development of nuclear weapons by Iran.
Again, Barack Obama and his inept negotiator John Kerry are not on the same wave length as Americans. Bargaining behind closed doors with the radical Iranian regime and purveyor of extremist violence who continue to lead their countrymen in chanting, “Death to America!” and vow to annihilate Israel, is indefensible. Congress remains in the dark regarding the actual deal making while the United Nations is the green light partner in this incredibly risky scheme. The lunatics are running the asylum.
