Obama’s Rendezvous with Terrorism Speech

Dr. Evil acted the part delivering his post terrorism address. But after assorted tries he finally attempts to nail down a message — a message but not a strategy. 4-Point BS.

First, was his comment he would call the president of France later to express his sentiments on the Paris attack. Then, when in Paris, he had a failed press conference getting hammered by questions on terrorism. Then he went to Manila and made statements on the terrorism attack, refusing as he does to call it Islamic terrorism. Then after San Bernardino was labeled an act of terror, he delivers his Saturday address talking about gun control So third bite at the terrorism apple, he has an address on terrorism. He finally called it terrorism only when he could not deny it.

Obama needed to mute the criticism of not making a formal announcement about it. Alas, still, maybe it is Americans fault for the non-inclusive prejudice against Muslims and our rampant Islamophobia? Hardly, they threw the terrorist couple a baby shower just months before. That’s a sure sign of Islamophobia.

All’s fair in warfare, or maybe not.

Obama has become the problem in the way Islam has become the problem. Complacency has led to being complicit. If he wants to manage this homeland terrorism how he managed ISIS, then we are certainly in for more pain with no gain. Obama’s complacency has brought us to this point. So if Sen. Blumenthal can declare Congress complicit for failing to enact gun control, then he should see the reality that Obama is complicit by his failures.

Islam is complicit by their complacency for years to do anything about it. There is a war within Islam, except there is only one side fighting it. Radical Islam is at war with us and only one side is really fighting it. But Obama is building a Climate Caliphate saying that will prove something to ISIS and Islamists.

The San Bernardino attack proved the fallacy in the administration’s terrorism theology. Remember that one? They claimed terrorists are caused by lack of jobs and poor socioeconomic conditions. Syed Farook was working for the government, with all the perks, as a so-called public servant. Scrap that theory, or label government employment a prerequisite for terrorism too. Nope. Oh, then it was droughts are the cause terrorism. There must have been a drought in San Bernardino. He was a health inspector of restaurants. But if only we could give them good jobs and good economic conditions, and prevent the climate from causing droughts. Then stop them from being victims, too.

Obama spoke from the Oval office:

Tonight, I want to talk with you about this tragedy, the broader threat of terrorism, and how we can keep our country safe.

Again he refers to it as a tragedy. Can we move on to the terrorism it was?

The FBI is still gathering the facts about what happened in San Bernardino, but here is what we know. The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their coworkers and his wife. So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home. But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West. They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition, and pipe bombs. So this was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people.

Yes, thank goodness the FBI already determined it was terrorism, so you are a little late informing us of that. Still he emphasizes coworkers, as if that really had anything to do with it, except to provide them an opportunity for a soft target. But there he goes parsing the words that we have no evidence of connection to a wider conspiracy at home. (Disclaimer alert) Tell that to the dead and victims in San Bernardino. We know they were connected to terrorism abroad and she swore allegiance to the Caliphate. Pay no attention to that or his trip to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The obvious money connections mean nothing either. Oh, it must have been a lucrative government job to amass that arsenal of supplies by his lonesome, making that socioeconomic cause even more ridiculous. They must have dumped all that income into Islamic radical terrorism. So just lip service calling it radical terrorism.

Then he finally admits it is an act of terrorism, born of a radical religious ideology. The “perverted interpretation” some argue is more common and mainstream than many people accept. So this was cover for Obama’s ass to call it terrorism and implying a radical element to it. They were not just walking along, minding their own business, and fell victim to this perverted radical Islam, as victims themselves. No, there were only those real victims and the shooters were not victims. An ISIS spokesman prayed God would accept them as martyrs. Yep, martyrs that kill 14 and wound others in an ambush attack? Definitions shift like Obama.

Our nation has been at war with terrorists since al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11. In the process, we’ve hardened our defenses — from airports to financial centers, to other critical infrastructure.

Wait, you mean the War On Terror term that you abolished in political correctness and naive strategic failure. A war you tried to undermine by scrubbing any reference to radical Islamism in our strategy, plans, or rules. And your war on the term “terrorism?”

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have disrupted countless plots here and overseas, and worked around the clock to keep us safe.

Our law enforcement and intelligence agencies have been hampered and crippled by your P/C-fied policies and playing politics with our nations security. Treasonous by nature. If someone would have hindered our response after Pearl Harbor would we have allowed it? You mean those counter-terrorism measures our people carried out in spite of your undermining the central objective to root out Islamic terrorism in and out of the country. Kudos to them for that.

And I know that after so much war, many Americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure.

No, most of us know that, though it could be called a cancer, there is a cure even a short term one you are unwilling to commit to. And making statements calling it a JV team is not the prescription, nor is the denial about the source of this terrorism and ideology. That even inspires the cancer to grow. Pampering Muslims does little to combat it in the immediate future and makes it harder to confront in the longer term. An effect not lost on the terrorists.

Well, here’s what I want you to know: The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it. We will destroy ISIL and any other organization that tries to harm us. Our success won’t depend on tough talk, or abandoning our values, or giving into fear. That’s what groups like ISIL are hoping for. Instead, we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless, and by drawing upon every aspect of American power.

You do not have to tell us the threat is real. That is confirmed in real time. You’ve been in denial about it all along, deceiving, saying things like the world has always been a dangerous place. Seems you have no issue with tough talk when it comes to Republicans or even shutting down the government, or getting your way — any way you can, even abusing the Executive-Order pen. Tell us what groups like ISIS are hoping for. Inaction is what they are hoping for and counting on. We are being smart, then, by denying the severity of the threat, by relentlessly criticizing our own people for calling it a threat? Drawing upon every aspect of American power? Really, that is the height of deception you’ve been engaged in. You have constrained and criticized the use of American power. Instead, you use the bully pulpit to chastise American patriots. You take shots at Congress from foreign shores and play politics with our resources, including our military.

So in that manner we will succeed? This blind faith in you strategy has not been working to date, but still you say just believe and stay the course. (the one that brought us to this point) Strong, smart, resilient, relentless. Being strong and smart is not something we lack. It is you that has buried your head in the sand, as in Benghazi blaming it on a video for political reasons. Being nowhere to be found on the night of the Benghazi attack. Or going into Libya by sidestepping Congress. And look where that has led. Or your support and direct involvement in the Arab Spring from the beginning, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Again, a fruitful exercise.

Here’s how. First, our military will continue to hunt down terrorist plotters in any country where it is necessary.

But it is not just the social planners of terrorism who are a problem. It is the terrorists on the street, in sleeper cells that do the damage, and lone wolves.

In Iraq and Syria, airstrikes are taking out ISIL leaders, heavy weapons, oil tankers, infrastructure. And since the attacks in Paris, our closest allies — including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom — have ramped up their contributions to our military campaign, which will help us accelerate our effort to destroy ISIL.

You mean the lackluster politically correct effort you made so far? But now France and others have stepped in to do something besides return armed bombers. Since now you have finally allowed hitting oil tankers. Wouldn’t it have been achievement if you had done some of that before, when ISIS columns were moving into the neighborhood?

Second, training and equipping to the tune of 500 million that produced four warriors.

Third, working with friends and allies sounds a lot like the first. Wait for others, lead from behind. Works every time.

Fourth, more American leadership from behind in the international community “to focus on the common goal of destroying ISIL — a group that threatens us all.” Let’s hope that proves more productive than the Iran deal. A leadership that you, Obama, have failed to demonstrate so far. I only wish you would show the same passion for that as you have for the global warming agenda.

This is our strategy to destroy ISIL. It is designed and supported by our military commanders and counterterrorism experts, together with 65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition. And we constantly examine our strategy to determine when additional steps are needed to get the job done.

You mean those changes you have been so stubbornly against? Yeah, more of that. Or you mean the job of leaving it for the next president to deal with after you removed the thousands of support troops from Iraq and grew the numbers and support for ISIS?

That’s why I’ve ordered the Departments of State and Homeland Security to review the visa program under which the female terrorist in San Bernardino originally came to this country. And that’s why I will urge high-tech and law enforcement leaders to make it harder for terrorists to use technology to escape from justice.

Finally, after an DHS spokesperson said they stand by that policy, you will now “review”(look at) that visa program. Lets hope you don’t look at it like you did the Keystone Pipeline.

To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no-fly list is able to buy a gun. What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon? This is a matter of national security.

It is actually a red herring. A great talking point on the left. We have a program plagued with problems now which you want to use to control gun screening.

Finally, if Congress believes, as I do, that we are at war with ISIL, it should go ahead and vote to authorize the continued use of military force against these terrorists. For over a year, I have ordered our military to take thousands of airstrikes against ISIL targets. I think it’s time for Congress to vote to demonstrate that the American people are united, and committed, to this fight.

Another red herring, the Constitution or anything else has not stopped or prevented you before from acting, such as in Libya.

We should not be drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria. That’s what groups like ISIL want. They know they can’t defeat us on the battlefield.

That makes no real sense. If they cannot defeat us on the battlefield, why would they want us there? I get it, you are not interested in a war, even if they have declared one on us. Yet you call on Congress to declare authorization for you to act.

Even in this political season, even as we properly debate what steps I and future Presidents must take to keep our country safe, let’s make sure we never forget what makes us exceptional.

Right never forget what makes us exceptional, while denying we are exceptional. That makes sense. By the way, a good many people wish they could trust you.

Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear;

Let’s talk about that. We aren’t forgetting and haven’t. Just that we value our freedom and sovereignty more than you do. You want to entangle us and give away our sovereignty. How does that make us free or freer?

Now that you mention fear, you are building a Climate Caliphate based and founded on fear. And it seeks to limit our freedom and economic freedoms. How is that compatible with what you advocate? More specious words meant more to deceive rather than heal a climate of frustration with your use(abuse) of power.

Dr. Evil will speak on terrorism, security

So Dr. Evil, Obama will make a speech Sunday in prime time to address the nation’s terrorism concerns. Days after San Bernardino’s terrorism, the FBI finally says it is investigating it as an “act of terrorism”. Obama, who inspires confidence in less than a third of the country, now feels compelled to make a national speech to reassure people he is taking terrorism and security seriously. Talk talk talk, which is all he ever does.

And what he actually says denyies the Islamic connection to the terrorism and denies the problem we know it is. So his denial has played an active part in supporting the greatest enemy of America right now, Islamic radicalized fascists.

The real problem we didn’t know at the time was if San Bernardino was part of a wider terrorism plot yet unfolding, or an individual cell acting on it’s own. We were hardly reassured by the way they handled it from the beginning. If it was a real time plot unfolding we were kept in the dark and police collecting the bodies afterward was treating the symptoms not the disease. If they were actively preventing an ongoing real-time threat, they didn’t inspire confidence that they were up to the challenge or investigation. Just compared to France there is a big difference.

All that now behind us, after coming to terms with calling it terrorism, Obama will now seek to calm the fears of people that he is taking action, while continuing the denial of Islamic connections to the terrorism. He seems the only person in the world who is not willing to make that connection. Even Muslim countries do not deny the association.

Loretta Lynch has already said her biggest concern is blowback or Islamic hatred — Isamophopbia. Only in Obama’s world are these events downplayed as unrelated to a larger terrorism picture. Terrorists seek to maximize their physical impact while Obama seeks to minimize their (global) impact. That does no one any favors. When he downplays the threat it posses, he does the enemies work for them. Then they seek greater impact, a game no one should want to play. No one but Obama. So rather than confronting reality, he considers gun control the bomb. Likely more of the same in Dr. Evil’s speech.

It’s terrorism, stupid

Only here would we spend a day and a half debating whether or not this is Terrorism? Nah, we can’t jump to conclusions.(what jump?) Obama again calls it “a tragedy.” They wouldn’t even release the name because it might point to Islamic terrorism.

But they jumped to a gun control problem. Obama ensures the American people that ‘we are going to get to the bottom of this’. I really wish he hadn’t said that. It is not the guns that are the problem here.

All the Democrat pols sounded like parrots talking about gun control and politicizing the act within minutes. Then they say the prayers aren’t working and a paper declares “God is not fixing this.”

Yet oh don’t talk about the elephant in the room, Islamic jihad terrorism, or Islamic radicalism.(shhhh) What nonsense. Sorry, but God doesn’t have a lot to work with there.

Rialto CA: 1.8 million embezzled school lunches

I know, strange, but the same school district that concocted that Holocaust denial assignment for middle-schoolers has got itself an embezzlement scandal. Rialto California.

An employee raked in or out, as case may be, a whopping 1.8 million dollars from  school lunches over 14 years.   That’s a lot of bananas and yogurt. However, a total of 3.1 million is unaccounted for in an audit.

Or maybe this story is a wormhole to another dimension?

The Sun reports the sordid details here.

The 25-year career, on paper, of Judith Oakes at Rialto Unified

 

(The Sun)Twenty-six years later, prosecutors allege Oakes may have found her job a bit too profitable: An audit by the district accuses her of embezzling $3.1 million in lunch money from district schools over 14 years, stuffing money into her bra and stealing an average of $2,000 a day on three out of every four days she worked over the past four years.On Oct. 8, she was charged with eight counts of embezzlement by a public or private officer and eight counts of a public officer crime. If convicted of all charges, she faces up to 11 years in state prison. The charges focus on $1.8 million she allegedly stole over the past four years.Back in 1987, she was a new Cal State San Bernardino graduate with a bachelor’s degree in finance, “seeking a challenging career opportunity … where my experience and education will be effectively utilized for mutual benefit,” the “Objective” portion of her 1987 resume reads. At the time, she was a three-year employee with the Bank of Redlands (now Community Bank), where she was being trained as a loan officer.

I guess she now has a Masters in ‘high finance’. Okay, so in four months that is around 96,000 dollars, or 288k yr. (on top of her salary and perks) That’s a lot of bra padding. If convicted, she faces up to 11 years in prison. Another strange twist is at the arraignment her attorney put the emphasis on the amount of her bail, compared to other criminals.

KTLA:

Rialto police arrested Oakes on Aug. 7 after she was allegedly recorded on video stuffing cash into her bra. She was booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga and released on $50,000 bail on Aug. 8, the same day she resigned her position with the school district.The Rialto Unified School District’s superintendent, Harold L. Cebrun, and his deputy, James Wallace, remain on administrative leave pending an investigation into the matter. Neither is considered a suspect, police said./…

A former Rialto Unified accountant’s bail was increased to $1.8 million — the same amount she is accused of embezzling from the district — at an arraignment in Fontana Superior Court on Wednesday after she pleaded not guilty to multiple felony charges.

Judith Oakes, 48, was handcuffed and led out of the courtroom after pleading not guilty to eight counts of embezzlement by public or private officer and eight counts of public officer crime.

“Isn’t it amazing, in San Bernardino, that the bail for taking money can be twice what the bail is for first-degree murder and can be four times what the bail would be set on a man who commits the crime of rape,” Oakes’ attorney, Patrick Milligan, told KTLA. “It’s just amazing to me that in these days when we don’t have any jail space, that we would deem a property crime to have the possibility of creating more danger to the community than those kind of crimes that I just talked to you about.”

Oakes’ family “was crushed — not because they thought she should be released” on her own recognizance but because they “did not get a bail that would allow them to post bail on their child and their mother without breaking the bank of all these people,” Milligan said.

“If she wanted to have bail at $250,000 that’s what she should have stolen,” San Bernardino County Assistant District Attorney Rick Young said in court, the San Bernardino Sun reported.

Although authorities say Oakes is suspected of embezzling $1.8 million over 14 years, an audit conducted by an investigation firm reported that $3.1 million is unaccounted for during that time period. (More)

 

Touche’ to the DA. The family cries hardship and they’re worried about bail? Its hard to get outraged over the bail in such a case. In fact, the original bail of 50,000 seemed more of a drop in the hat. (that’s only about 8 weeks of takes)

The 2nd article seems more concerned on her history and bail decisions than details. I’m trying to understand, it says 3.1 million are missing and they charged her with 1.8 million. Are they going to forget the other 1.3 million? Seems to be more to come on this. Where did she put all the money, in a bank? If not, it raises even more questions.

But in a region where stories have surfaced on some officials or a superintendent legally making half-million dollar salaries, what is 1.8 million or even 3.1 million anyway? That rationale sounds as disturbing as arguments about unreasonable bail. To say nothing about the padded bra. What say you?
