“We don’t have a strategy yet,” Mr. Obama said of his plans for defeating the Islamic State in Syria. “We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans. As our strategy develops, we will consult with Congress.”
Up to now, all Obama has done is drop a few bombs on the Black Army of the Caliphate, destroying a truck here, a tank there, when we have the capability of bombing them back to the stone age. Now they’ve captured a border crossing in the Golan Heights, on Israel’s doorstep, and are threatening to fly their flag over the White House. What’s Obama waiting for? Is he stupid? Is he inept? Is he in over his head? Or does he support the Islamic State and is deliberately withholding military support to Syria and Iraq in order to allow the Caliphate more time for conquest?
Both his Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff warned that the Islamic State is an extremely serious threat, but both had to walk their statements back when Obama finally left the golf course and returned to the White House.
You may recall that, in a conversation with George Stephanopoulos in September 2008, Obama spoke of “my Muslim faith,” after which Mr. Stephanopoulos interrupted and corrected him by saying, “You mean, your Christian faith.” It’s implausible that someone would blurt out “my Muslim faith” unless some basis existed for such a statement.
Draw your own conclusions.
"This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility," Obama was overheard saying to the Russian president during a March 2012 summit. "I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin]," said Dmitri Medvedev.
Translation: “Tell Putin to wait till my second term to invade Ukraine. If he does it now, I’d be obligated to act or risk losing the election. After the election, he can do what he wants and I’ll simply declare a couple of ineffective sanctions and then equivocate.”
“Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against—then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of law-breakers—and then you can cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
