As the attacks and attempted attacks from Islamist terrorists increase on American soil, Obama and his Administration decrease their concern--to the point of actually appearing to both protect and support the perpetrators. Note: In my opinion, these actions and non-actions extend well beyond political correctness.
Obama has transferred--and has said he will continue to do so--known Islamist terrorists from Guantanamo back to Yemen; so that these may again attack the country Obama also hates--the USA. Dictator-in-Chief Obama--who now only works against the American people and the USA’s soon to be former allies--also worked with ObamaAppointee US Attorney General Holder to ensure that terrorists, enemy combatants (aka ’belligerents’) and fellow Muslims are not tried in Military courts but, are instead tried in American civilian courts and given full US Constitutional protections.
Note: However incorrectly he applies it, Obama appears to now use the US Constitution only when it serves his, Marxists’, Maoists’--and now Islamist terrorists--purposes.
When the son of a wealthy Nigerian banker, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, tried to bring down an airliner flying from Amsterdam to Detroit with a ’bomb sewn into his pants’, Obama said it was an “isolated incident.” It was not. Abdulmutallab immediately admitted there are at least dozens more waiting to do the same thing. Then, Obama’s Chief of Homeland Security the almost-always-clueless Janet Napolitano said the “system worked” . It did not. Only due to passenger vigilance and action was Abdulmutallab’s bombing attempt thwarted. This attempt occurred despite the facts that Abdulmutallab was on an international watch list, had previously been identified (and admitted to) as connected to Al Qaeda in Yemen and even his father had warned officials at the US Embassy in Nigeria that his son was dangerous. Further, the Islamist terrorist bought a one-way ticket from Amsterdam to Detroit, paid cash and had left a good-bye message for his father.
Observation: With this insane lack of any action against this bombing attempt by an identified dangerous Islamist, one has to wonder if multiple countries officials hoped--if not planned--for the bombing of the plane to occur with their purposeful inaction. And do you still remember the Ft. Hood massacre perpetrated by Islamist Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan on his unarmed fellow soldiers? He will also be tried in a civilian court. Hasan is a US citizen who is also an Islamist terrorist. At some point, too many ‘coincidences’ cannot be ignored by intelligent people.
To add more insult to even more injury, Obama has decided to also try Abdulmutallab in a civilian court. Nothing is too good for Obama’s would-be buddies! This quick decision on Obama’s part--the only fast decision in any of this--immediately stopped ANY questions posed by authorities to the terrorist Abdulmutallab. Obama and his Attorney General ensured that the perp ‘lawyered up’. These dots are some of the easiest to connect that I’ve ever seen--if not the most disturbing. Yet, most seem to be content to completely chalk it up to more Obama Administration incompetence. This seems to be the general practice of the ObamaMedia when they simply have nothing else in Obama’s defense to offer. Say he’s inexperienced and naive but, “he’s learning fast!”
Note: Some of the media even use this excuse for the ObamaCare Death Plan. But, Obama, his mentors and the ObamaCzars know exactly what they’re doing. They are setting up the foundation framework in ObamaCare to take over all aspects of American life with multiple (hundreds in fact) agencies that have little-to-nothing to do with health care, have reestablished the Obama Death Panels (to get rid of those pesky ’undesirables’--seniors, the disabled and perhaps even the Marxists political opposition), force citizens to pay for health insurance that the Obama Administration approves or be fined and go to jail and have placed the IRS in charge of enforcing this mandatory ObamaCare Death Plan.
Democrats in both the House and Senate have said that they will neither include Republicans nor the ever-growing opposition from the American people to sway their position of taking them over by force. This is called tyranny and We-the-People are now firmly planted in an Obama & Co dictatorship.
As I and others have been writing for years, the ultimate goal of Conservatism is the smallest government control possible and the final goal of Liberalism is total government control of all of the people and everything they do and say. We are almost there, folks. Obama & Co has learned totalitarianism well and is now in the process of implementing it.
So, here we are with Obama doing everything in and with his formidable power to protect terrorists while destroying the American people and all that once was the United States of America. Still feeling peaceful?
