Angry statements warn us Obama is severely disconnected from reality.
Obama's anger was transparently clear as he stridently blamed guns, Donald Trump, hate, and violence (but not Islamic extremism or Sharia) for his own inability to identify as an Islamic terrorist the person responsible for a Sharia-inspired massacre that has thus far taken 49 livee in an Orlando nightclub. His tirade demonstrates just how dangerously out of touch with reality Obama has become. Believing he can smooth-talk his fantasies to a gullible public, Obama's dissembling excuses demonstrate his reprehensible contempt for the intelligence of the American people.
There is one and only one thing at which President Obama excels. He has polished to a brilliant shine his talent for looking the American people straight in the eye and lying through his teeth.
In a sorry attempt to explain away his stubborn refusal to clearly identify as Muslim extremists the perpetrators of domestic acts of terrorism by radical Islamists adhering to Sharia Law, Obama instead claimed the real culprits are our constituional right to "keep and bear arms", hate, violence, and those who have no trouble identifying the perpetrators as Muslim extremists.
Obama's tirade made him look even smaller. His statements were not presidential. Donald Trump's statement had much greater clarity, rang with truth, and was far more mature, realistic, and presidential.
It is clear that Trump has begun to get on Obama's nerves.
Can anyone remember any time in US history when a retiring sitting president involved himself as stridently in the nomination process of another political party?
Can anyone remember a time when the sitting president displayed as little tact and grasp of reality as have Obama's recent statements?
On the one hand, we have a sitting president who has created a "politically correct" environment that so permeates federal agencies that it is not permitted to identify as Muslim, Islamic, or Shariaists those who are at war with Western Civilization. That kind of denial can only lead to greater loss of life, more terrorism, and greater threats to non-Sharia peaceful Muslims.
On the other, we have an honest appraisal of the problem created when an administration demonstrates more regard for "policial correctness" than it does for the safety of the American public. That clarity, coupled with a realistic proposal for a solution that will significantly enhance public safety, makes Donald Trump a real thorn in the side of Obama as he festers in his own denial.
And for the record, Mr. Obama, it is neither reckless nor disparaging to temporarily halt Muslim immigration into the United States until our government has both the will and the capacity to properly determine whether the subject follows Sharia Law. If Sharia is followed, then it is the respondibility of this government to forbid immigration to that person.
Because Sharia Law and the Constitution of the United States of America, are wholly incompatible. There can be only one supreme law of the land in the United States, and it cannot be Sharia Law. Those who practice Sharia Law pose a clear and present danger to citizens of the United States.
If Obama does not understand that simple reality, then he truly is, as Donald Trump has suggested, unfit to be President.
Author of "Looking Out the Window", an evidence-based examination of the "climate change" issue, Bob Webster, is a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s). He is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
