Albert Einstein is often credited with the statement, “the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting different results.” And so it goes with the national security strategy –or lack thereof — of President Obama.
We know that ISIS — and I’ve explained why Obama uses ISIL — has stated that they intend to infiltrate the ranks of displaced persons from Syria and elsewhere. The Islamic terror attack in Paris confirmed this is already occuring. And President Obama lectures us about our values and why he’ll press on with allowing the entry of these persons to our nation. Tashfeen Malik lied on her visa application, it wasn’t caught, and she entered our country on a fiancée visa and ended up leading the savage murder of fourteen Americans and wounding 21 others. And we’re told by President Obama that our vetting systems are just fine.
We know there’s no 60-nation coalition defeating ISIS. If 60 nations were aligned against ISIS and intent on defeating this barbaric enemy, it would have been done in 60 days. We started in the fall of 2014 and ISIS has conducted command and control of terrorist operations in Paris, the Sinai in Egypt, and Beirut — and taken credit for inspiring the attack in San Bernardino.
And Obama tells us there will be no change, it’s all fine. The American people are told how standing up for our nation is nothing more than a recruiting tool for ISIS – as we willfully fail to recognize the militant Islamic ideology.
The response to the single biggest Islamic terrorist attack on American soil since 9-11 is gun control? Climate change contributes to Islamic terrorism? Are you frigging kidding me?
And meanwhile, as reported by Fox News, “Iran has carried out a new medium range ballistic missile test in breach of two United Nations Security Council resolutions, a senior U.S. official told Fox News on Monday.
Western intelligence says the test was held Nov. 21 near Chabahar, a port city in southeast Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan Province near the border with Pakistan. The launch took place from a known missile test site along the Gulf of Oman. The missile, known as a Ghadr-110, has a range of 1,800 – 2000 km, or 1200 miles, and is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
The missile fired in November is an improved version of the Shahab 3, and is similar to the precision guided missile tested by Iran on Oct. 10, which elicited strong condemnation from members of the U.N. Security Council.
“The United States is deeply concerned about Iran’s recent ballistic missile launch,” Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., said in a statement after the last Iranian ballistic missile test in October. President Obama mentioned the Iranian missile test during a press conference on Oct. 16 and said the United States was preparing to brief the U.N. sanctions committee. He added that it would not derail the nuclear deal.”
So let me get this right. This is the second ballistic missile test firing since the signing of the Iranian nuclear deal. This is the second violation of a U.N. Resolution against Iranian ballistic missile activity which banned this action for eight years. And what is President Obama’s response? “It will not derail the nuclear deal.” Folks, that’s not just delusional, it is the pure unadulterated definition of insanity.
And what does our U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power have to say? The United States is deeply concerned…no ma’am, we are not deeply concerned, we are seriously pissed off. We are not angry with the Iranians because we know who they are — a militant Islamic regime led by demented theocrats. We know Iran is the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism and has the blood of thousands of Americans on its hands.
We are angry with an administration more concerned about its ideological agenda and “legacy” than the security of the United States. The truth is that Obama doesn’t have to do anything to derail the Iranian nuclear deal. The Iranians are doing it themselves. Iran has totally voided this foolish endeavor. And neither party actually signed it anyway! It’s a sham.
The sad reality is the only person so intransigent that he cannot show the ability to shift is Barack Obama. The only flexibility Obama possesses is what he expressed to then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in a perceived off-mike moment, based on his reelection.
So for Obama, his flexibility isn’t rooted in the concept of adjusting to the actions of your enemy. Obama’s flexibility is grounded in his confused version of reality that forces him to believe everything is associated with what he deems vital — gun control and climate change.
And so our enemies — Islamic jihadists, Russia, Iran, China — all know they have from now until January 2017 to advance their global strategic objectives. Why? Because we have a president who believes everything is fine and it is us, America, who is the nature of the problems. It is us, Americans, who need to change who we are and how we live our lives. It is this great Republic that must be fundamentally transformed and remade.
That, for President Barack Hussein Obama, is far more important than ISIS or Iran.
