Idiotically, Obama said the killers "had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam" rather than acknowledging reality. They were persons who went down the path of becoming devout muslims adhering to Islamism, a badly plagiarized kind of Judaism.
Obama offered up a bit of true gold comedy when he said, "We're working with Turkey to seal its border with Syria." Meanwhile Obama can't even work with the Mexican government to seal the border with Mexico and stop the Central American illegal alien invasion under which Americans have been suffering since the Bill Clinton years.
And then Obama went ahead with false bravado to masquerade his lecturing:
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.
No sooner did Obama say that those in charge — because it is never truly about Americans — should not give into fear, Obama proposed giving into fear. Obama said, "To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no-fly list is able to buy a gun."
The existence of a no-fly list reveals fear. Almost everyone who has been named to the no-fly list is a U.S. citizen. Only those living from fear try to deny anyone they dislike from flying. And could there be anything more fearful than trying to take away from Americans their constitutionally-enshrined right of owning guns by violating the Second Amendment?
Bogus constitutional scholars like Obama forever need to be schooled on the Constitution of the United States. The first ten amendments, which are known as the Bill of Rights, describe legal relationships that impose duties upon any congress formed under the Constitution and confers matching rights to every individual living within the territories of the United States.
And then the one-time practitioner of Islam told Americans, "Here's what else we cannot do. We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam." Meanwhile the war is between the ummah — worldwide muslimry — who adhere to Islam and Islamic law against the Americans, the United States Constitution and our way of life.
And with an amazing display of publicly-expressed stupidity, Obama said, "But just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans -- of every faith -- to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country."
Back on November 21, 1989, then President Bush signed into law the the 1990 Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill. That bill included the Lautenberg Amendment, named after Frank Lautenberg, the senator from New Jersey who pushed for it, which gave preferential status to refugees from the former Soviet Union and Southeast Asia based on their religions. In short, the law established a religious test for immigration!
The worst bit though is this. With passage of the omnibus spending bill signed into law by President Obama himself on on January 17th, 2014, Obama re-authorized the Lautenberg Amendment to give a religious preference test for Jews, Christians, Baha’is, and other religious minorities seeking to flee Iran.
Obama gave a speech claiming he has a plan. Obama's failure of a plan since Janurary, 2009, has been this:
- Import even more hijrah muslims — muslims who practice jihad by immigration
- Try to confiscate legal guns from Americans when Congress has a duty not to try to confiscate arms of any kind for any reason, anytime.
On Monday, GOP presidential front-runner, Donald Trump, released a statement to news media:
Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.”
Current Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, the proud cheesehead from Wisconsin, took to the airwaves to denounce Trump's plan. Idiotically, Ryan said "What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and, more importantly, it's not what this country stands for."
And yet, this is exactly what Congress does. Not only is the Lautenberg Amendment proof that Congress controls immigration by religious tests, but also long ago Congress passed other immigration law that restricts immigration on grounds of terrorism, criminal activity and other dangers to Americans (see: 8 U.S. Code § 1182 - Inadmissible aliens)
