Dare I begin, by saying, what an outrageous attempt to respond to the attack in Paris, Mr. President.
Newsflash: They completed the mission. The attempt was not only made, it was done.... They terrorized.
And who are they? ISIS: Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) or ISIL: Islamic State of the Levant...ISIS, ISIL same verse same as the first.
Of course, The Left -- informally recognized as the Ignorant State of Leftists, or ISOL -- never really want to characterize the reality in real terms, do they now.
Indeed, Lefty's -- how outrageous... for the United States "to be painting with too broad a brush." It just might hurt somebody's feelings or something. [You kids have no idea how free and easy you have it...but that's a blog for another day.]
Back to what we call things...
The Jihadists can put a name on it.
They know who they are at WAR with...Christianity. The Western World... Infidels...anyone and everyone who does NOT follow Mohammed, Islam, the Qur'an and Sharia Law.
Taking a broad stroke across the nation, it might even be safe to say The Left, ISOL, is equally extreme in it's attacks against America's Judeo-Christian heritage, our Christian values, our Christianity in both practice and free exercise. Take for example, the attacks against Christian bakers, pizza makers...Obamacare forcing religious beliefs against contraception mandates, the federal funding of Planned Parenthood and abortion against the religious conscience of a majority of Americans, and of course, in light of the annual debate in the coming of 'Jesus is the Reason for the Season' -- left-winged atheists have attempted and conquered by organizing a perpetual coup d'etat against the sight of all religion in the public square with firm resolve (but we're winning, for now, in a local story, here).
Friday morning, ironically airing an interview on Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, our president said this...
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
“What we have not yet been able to do is to completely decapitate their command and control structures,” he admitted. “We’ve made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and part our goal has to be to recruit more effective Sunni partners in Iraq to really go on offense rather than simply engage in defense.” [get full report on Breitbart.com, here.]
And if this outrageous assessment of containment stands, then GOD help us all.
Sunday mornings always find me, G, watching church. Today was no different. Only that, in the shadow of the Paris attacks from Friday night, my soul was searching madly, deeply, frantically for solace and a sense of calm.
It was during the Heart of the Nation Catholic Mass that a realization stunned me into perfect submission to the thought of... by God, there is a God.
It was during this brief half hour, and the mere three minutes or less of a sermon, that the priest reminded us of this (and paraphrasing):
This fear, this fear that we feel deep down inside us, gives us a chance to look at our relationship with God. Asking the simple question, are we in good relationship with God? For if we are in relationship, and it is good, then fear is nothing more than a chance to trust in God, to trust in that relationship, and KNOW in our heart, that God is always near, no matter what happens.
Perhaps in the broad picture of things, we can't control what happens in the world.
We can't control the bad guys. Or can we? We've done it before.
We can't stop evil. Or can we? We've done it before.
The thing is -- we can most definitely control how we respond to things...even radical, Islamic, extreme things.
We can respond like a complete imbecile, as in President Obama's "attempt" to console France and the nation. Or we can respond with a more merciless vengeance is mine approach.
And to that end, as Americans, we can respond to the reality of ISIL and ISOL meeting up with such dangerous political correctness, that it places America directly in harm's way and into a situation that demands attention to every detail, from top down, today.
This is where Michael Goodwin from the New York Post comes in handy. See his November 14th column, here. It's time for President Obama to make a choice and lead us or resign. Thank you, Mr. Goodwin, little g couldn't have said it better herself.
If I were president right now, today, I would --
- Close the border. And immediately put the military on the border.
- Go door to door, seeking out illegals of all nations, documenting origins, and immediately deport illegals from the Middle East...every single one of them.
- Blow up ISIL camps in the United States right now
- Bring in the FBI on CAIR with the full intent to close it down
- Domestically infiltrate neighborhoods with a Muslim majority (Dearborn, Chattanooga...) -- and put a stop of any organization (with membership of one to a million) that undermines the welfare and security of America and Americans.
- Go to Congress and demand a vote demonstrating full support of military operations to annihilate "radical extremists" wherever they exist in the world, as well as broaden the defense budget... in other words, return it to a military of might, not slight.
- Cease and desist the language of political correctness across the board, in both the broad and minute strokes and terms.
- And, if time allows, immediately tear up the Iran Nuclear Deal. (That is designed just to make you laugh,even though it's really not funny at all.)
All in all, there is no time like the present.
We have work to do.
America is not done.
And we have nothing to fear, but fear itself.
It IS time for the President to lead or RESIGN; begging the question, just who is containing who, Mr. President?
But Hope does NOT float with this thought of resignation for very long; for in reality, it would be truly naive to think he sees anything wrong with his response, his leadership, his illogical, ill-conceived, reckless response to the Radical Islamic Extremists of the world, whether they be on foreign soil or domestic. From home and abroad, HE has set up America, if not the entire free world, for a free fall...as in no problem, let's just open the flood gates, come one, come all,..It's all outrageous, really.
God bless us one and all --- especially to the people of France as they struggle to find peace in the presence of pure evil.
Make it a Good Day, G
