The self-annointed defender of all things Islam

slander islam

At first I thought it was simply stupid. At first I thought someone screwed up. That’s not it. Obama chose not to go. He didn’t want to go. He didn’t want to offend Islamic terrorists and have to call them what they really are. He didn’t want to have to admit that we’re still at war with Islamic extremists. And more.

At first the Obama regime wasn’t even going to address the issue until it started taking flak from all sides. Politico thought the White House was “out of step”:

Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?

Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.

They bought the bogus story that White House aides didn’t bother to even ask Obama. The White House then threw the press a bone:

“I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” Earnest said.

And the left wing media, so anxious for their messiah’s image, swallowed it and said “Well, they sort of apologized and it’s time to move on.”

Which is exactly what Obama wanted.

Ed Henry sparred with Josh Earnest about Obama’s inability to say “Islamic extremism.”

ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: You speak about taking on all forms of violent extremism.

JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: All forms of violent extremism would be discussed in the context of the summit. Obviously the most potent, and also the most graphically displayed in recent days is motivated by individuals who seek to invoke the name of Islam to carry out these attacks, and that is certainly something we want to work very hard to mitigate and we have a strategy we have been working on for some time to do that.

HENRY: Why isn’t this summit on countering Islamic extremism?

EARNEST: Because violent extremism is something we want to be focused on, it is not just Islamic violent extremism that we want to counter. There are other forms.

HENRY: Paris, Australia, Canada. Isn’t that violent Islamic extremism?

EARNEST: Certainly the examples you cite are individuals citing Islamic teaching — individuals have cited it.

Somehow, Obama knows more about Islam than anyone else.

On the Kelly Files, State Department spokesperson Marie Barf Harf said the White House doesn’t use the term Islamic extremism because there are other kinds of extremism but couldn’t name one:

MARTHA MACCALLUM, “KELLY FILE” GUEST HOST: Every time we see this exchange it seems like the answer is so tortured. Like it’s so difficult to say what everybody around the world seems to feel so clearly it is. And what the leaders have said in Canada and Australia and Paris where they have felt it potently and personally, they’ve all said quite clearly the battle is against Islamic extremism. Why is that so hard to say?

MARIE HARF, STATE DEPARTMENT: Well, it’s not hard to say, but it’s not the only kind of extremism we face. I would recommend folks looking at this administration’s counter-terrorism record. I would remind people that more terrorists who claim to do acts of violence in the name of Islam have been taken off the battlefield in this administration than other any previous one because of our counterterrorism operations and our efforts that we put in place. But that’s not the only way you counter this kind of extremism. Much of it Islamic, you’re absolutely right. But some of it not. So we’re going to focus on all the different kinds of extremism with a heavy focus on people who do this in the name of Islam, we would say falsely in the name of Islam, but there are other forms of extremism —

MACCALLUM: Tell me, what other forms of extremism are particularly troubling and compelling to you right now?

HARF: Well, look, there are people out there who want to kill other people in the name of a variety of causes. Of course, Martha, we are most focused on people doing this in the name of Islam. And we’ve talked about with ISIL, part of our strategy to counter this extremism is to have other moderate Muslim voices stand up and say they don’t represent our religion. They speak for their religion more than we do certainly and we need those voices to stand up. In addition to all the other efforts we’re undertaking.

MACCALLUM: I just think a lot of other countries probably listen to the way we’re talking about this and scratch their heads and wonder why it’s so hard to spit it out in a lot of these conversations.

Both of these exchanges were pathetic. You have to wonder why these flacks keep shredding their own dignity time and again for Obama.

The Obama regime’s response to the attacks by Islamic terrorists? Attack the press:

President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defenses forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.

“The president … will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks, spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at the White House’s daily briefing.

The unprecedented reversal of Americans’ civil-military relations, and of the president’s duty to protect the First Amendment, was pushed by Earnest as he tried to excuse the administration’s opposition in 2012 to the publication of anti-jihadi cartoons by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

In 2012 the Obama regime hammered the publishers of Charlie Hebdo for insulting “the prophet.”

“We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the prophet Muhammad, and obviously we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this,” Carney told reporters during a midday press briefing at the White House.

“We know these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential be be inflammatory,” Carney said in a prepared statement.

Obama said “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Ever hear Obama say “the future must not belong to those who slander Jesus Christ”?

Me neither.

It’s ironic that Obama could call fellow Americans “enemies” but not call Islamic terrorism what it is. This is the same regime that called returning vets “domestic terrorists.” There was no trouble identifying “right wing extremism” and “radicals” on the right. Homeland Security made a big deal of right wing extremism:

Titled: Rightwing Extremism: current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment

1) The election of the first African American President is spawning domestic terrorism. “Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration….”

2) Possible new legislation to restrict gun laws may spawn domestic terrorism.

3) Returning military veterans may resort to domestic terrorism. Right wingers may “recruit” combat veterans “to boost their violent capabilities.”

4) An recent example of rightwing extremism is the shooting deaths of the three police officers in Pittsburgh, PA on April 4, 2009.

5) “Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy…” “Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.”

6) Violence is expected due to “rightwing extremist groups’ frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration….”

Opposed to abortion or illegal immigration or in favor of gun rights? You’re a “right wing extremist.”

The Obama regime has no problem saying “right wing extremism” but there is no such thing as “Islamic terrorism”? Why?

Byron York argued that Obama intentionally snubbed the meeting in France because he didn’t want to admit that there is still a war on terror, which would mean that Obama was again wrong:

So when the president chose not to attend the Paris march, nor to send the Vice President or Secretary of State, the problem wasn’t a tin-ear sense of public relations. It was Obama’s actual attitude toward the terror threat facing not only Europe but the United States. We’ve dealt with the big stuff, Obama has declared, now let’s move on.

It sounded good — until the bullets started flying.

I agree, but I think it’s more than that. I think Barack Obama has taken on the mantle of the Defender of All Things Islam. Above everything.

Obama asserts that Islamic State (ISIL) is “not Islamic.” In September Obama defended Islam and smacked American racism.

In his book The Audacity of Hope Obama wrote:

Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

Cherif and Said Kouachi were born in France. They were citizens.

Obama has called Yemen a model in the fight against ISIS. Both Kouachi brothers trained in Yemen with Al Qaeda. AQAP’s branch in Yemen has claimed responsibility for the attack in Paris.

The Defender of Islam. Above everything. In the face of all reason. In denial of any involvement of Islam in violence and extremism.

Mecca, we have a problem.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Ignoring Islamic terror is similar to ignoring pregnancy, it might make you feel good, but the feeling is temporary.

    It is reasonable to wonder what could be called Islamic Terror in the feeble mind of our president or do such aberrant thoughts only trouble “Right Wingers” and victims of the homicidal maniacs posing as Muslims?

    Hopefully, the results of this presidential lunacy will come to a head while Obama is in office and not leave the next president with another 9/11 to deal with, right away.

    However, in the midst of these mounting tragedies and our alienation from the civilized nations of the world, the president’s golf game is improving; at least, we have something to celebrate.

    MARIE HARF, STATE DEPARTMENT: Well, it’s not hard to say, but it’s not the only kind of extremism we face.

    If there are more and varied types of extremism that should be addressed, doesn’t that make it even MORE vital that radical Islamic extremism be described as such?

    Obama is hard at work trying to curtail the rights of Americans.
    Accordong to him, WE shouldn’t write anything critical of Islam, even if it is true.
    BTW, that is the koran’s definition of ”insulting Islam,” a ”crime” punishable by death or near-death.
    WHY should our freedom of speech be limited by Sharia’s boundries?
    It is one thing if a Muslim in a Sharia state, like Saudi Arabia, is whipped with 50 lashes for 20 straight weeks*, fined $266,000 and imprisoned for 10 years for ”insulting Islam,” but why US?

    * his lashes would kill him if they are all administered at one time, which was the original plan.

    Obama is anti-American; a socialist who pushes the NWO, and as supports islam. This is the reason he did not go. The ill winds are blowing and he sides with muslims.

    There is a reason the person who holds the office of president and/ or vice president has to be born to TWO UNITED STATES citizens. There must be NO question where their loyalty lies.

    I am astounded by Obama’s generalizing (hastily) that, by calling out RADICAL Islam for what it is, ALL Muslims could be offended.
    There are many Muslims who would welcome another world leader taking this proper view.
    So many Muslims are calling for reform in Islam it isn’t funny.
    Too many of them have to hide behind either pseudonyms or armed guards and that isn’t funny either.

    We just put a Muslim on the House Intelligence Committee.
    He, Rep. Carson, had already said he wished all USA schools would be patterned after the Islamic madrassa!
    Do that and we’ll really have an uninformed populace.
    Did you know that, for all grades, the koran is the MAIN textbook?
    These Muslims are probably the least educated graduates of any students on the planet!
    All they know is the koran and all they do is take the word of their imam for how to understand it.

    we’ve admitted 680,000 immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries in the five years between 2009 and 2013. We also bring in over 150,000 foreign students from that region every single year. The trajectory for both is growing faster than any other origin of immigration.

    What is so disconcerting is that the government has not published any data since 2013 and has still refused to release the 2014 DHS yearbook on immigration statistics. So the American people have quite literally no idea how many security threats we have admitted from the Middle East over the past two years. Likewise, the public does not know how many other Tashfeen Malik’s got through the same counter-terrorism screenings she did. There is no monthly data on green cards that is publically available.

    How many more Tashfeens are there among the 200,000 immigrants we’ve admitted from Pakistan since 2001?

    Sadly, it appears that Republicans have no intention to address even the Syrian refugee issue in the upcoming budget bill, much less the broader problem of immigration.
    so if you see something say something dont let the PC police silence you.

    Meanwhile, YOU slavishly continue to support Hillary who lied about how she ignored the threats to our consulate in Benghazi, lied about the circumstances of the deaths of our Americans there, lied about classified information on her secret, private, unsecured email server (which she lied about) and has been selling State Department influence to foreign interests.

    I’ve been listening closely to this man. He is saying nothing substantive. He’s repeating propaganda memes. There’s nothing there but attitude—no details, no specifics, just assertions that magic will somehow be worked. He points whichever way the wind is blowing. I think his lunacy is some form of egomania. At some point he crossed a line and began believing his own bullshit.

    Alex Jones’s opening comments in the linked video are hilarious. If Trump’s comments are designed to target a mid-level audience, this nation is suffering from a serious brain cell shortage.

    If you don’t think his stated intentions concerning changes to the nation’s healthcare system….

    Please name ONE person who has had their heal care payments reduced by the $2,500 dollars obama PROMISED, PERIOD……… That would have been $208 a month.

    …reversing the economic disaster left by the Bush administration….

    There are now more people out of work than there are working. The work force ration is the lowest it has been for MANY YEARS. There are still fewer people working NOW, than when obama took office.

    …and modernizing the nation’s energy policy have been substantive….

    What has been modernized since he too office? What solar panel company, or wind company are still running? The ones that are, are being HEAVILY SUBSIDIZED by the federal and state governments, or the fuel they make would bee too expensive.

    …you’ve certainly wasted a helluva lot of time and energy complaining about nothing.

    I agree with you on that statement 100%. We have wasted too much time and energy complaining about NOTHING. It is time to get the NOTHING out of office, so he can’t turn the USA into the muslim country that he wants, and be the king of whatever the new name will be.

    He is a NOTHING, in the sense that he can’t do or say ANYTHING logical without having a script in front of him. He is a marionette, and his puppeteers pull his strings to make him move and talk.

    What if obama was sent her to turn the USA into a muslim country? Would what he is doing, and what he is not doing, make sense then? THINK ABOUT IT.

    HOW TO TAKE OVER A COUNTRY WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT

    Do any of these sound familiar?

    (1) HAVE YOUR PEOPLE GO TO THE COUNTRY AS IMMIGRANTS, REPRODUCE, GET ON WELFARE, RUN FOR POLITICAL OFFICE. IF ENOUGH OF YOUR PEOPLE WIN, YOU RUN THE COUNTRY
    (2) Take away the citizen’s guns so they can’t defend themselves.
    (3) Take over healthcare so the government decides who gets treated and who doesn’t.
    (4) Infiltrate their government.
    (5) Infiltrate their churches.
    (6) Infiltrate their news media so it can brainwash the citizens to an agenda.
    (7) Get as many people as possible on welfare to drain the treasury.
    (8) Spend the country into so much debt it can’t pay it off.
    (9) Infiltrate their schools to brainwash the kids into doing what they are told.
    (10) Take daddy out of the family. Without a daddy in the family, the kids are more likely to do drugs, quit school, get pregnant, be more violent.
    (11) Lower the moral value of people through the entertainment industries.
    (12) Give the people something to fight each other over (religion, race, nationality, inequality, money) so they are distracted with what is actually going on in their country until it is too late.
    (13) Decrease the military as much as possible so it can’t stop an overthrow of the government.
    (14) Let illegals in the country to help drain the treasury.
    (15) Keep increasing taxes to the point the citizens don’t have much money left. Do you remember why the Boston Tea Party happened.

    ####Did you forget all those shovel ready jobs?####

    The democratic party is SHOVEL READY. They are in debt. Why should the citizens of the USA trust them to run the country, when they can’t even run their own party without spending it into debt? Most of the major cities and states that are going broke, are run by democrats. They also have much tougher gun laws than republican run cities and states, but have the highest crime rate.

    For those who are for gun free zones, I have a question for you. If you are on the street, or in a business, and one or more people start beating you, do you want to hear someone say:

    I’m dialing 911.

    or

    Stop, or I’ll shoot?

    Please give me an honest answer.

    @Greg: As Gruber revealed, the goal of Obamacare was to get the government’s hands on the $280 billion a year in potential taxes that could be collected on pre-tax health care benefits. It was intended to funnel people towards government-controlled health care. It was intended to ration health care and stop “wasting it” on the elderly.

    Odd that while Obama has been repairing the damage left by Bush, he has been proposing going right back to the policies that actually caused the recession…. the Community Reinvestment Act. More failed wealth redistribution. In reality, he had the economic mess created by Carter and further mandated by Clinton to deal with. The rare element of that scenario is that it is not usually Democrats that wind up dealing with the disasters created by Democrats. Usually Republicans get that honor.

    Obama has done a great job making sure we remain dependent upon foreign sources for energy. But, where is that new energy source that is to replace fossil fuels? He has sort of left out half of the task… again, not unusual for a Democrat.
