Islamists have a friend in high places

Long before the day I was graciously afforded the opportunity to write on this blog I have been contemptuous of Barack Obama. Time has only heightened that contempt. Two stories that parallel each other demonstrate just how badly Barack Obama will compromise the US for the sake of his hubris.

The jihadista of San Bernardino, Malik Tashfeen, passed three DHS background checks when immigrating to the United States. The Obama administration looks the other way when it comes to social media postings- on the part of immigrants. Tashfeen openly supported violent jihad but in the Obama regime that’s not a disqualifier. The boss at DHS wouldn’t allow it.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson resisted calls last year to allow immigration agents to review visa applicants’ social media activity because of fear of “bad public relations,” according to a former agency official.

“During that time period immigration officials were not allowed to use or view social media as part of the screening process,” John Cohen, a former under-secretary at DHS for intelligence and analysis, told ABC News, where he now works as a national security consultant.

Why the f**k not?

Can’t you just hear Obama blurting out “It’s just not who we are”?

Can’t you just hear Obama spew “It’s contrary to our values”?

Obama and Johnson, however, do approve of monitoring the social media of American citizens.

In its “National Operations Center Media Monitoring Capability Desktop Reference Binder,” published in 2011, DHS encouraged agents to compile reports based upon a list of items of interest (IOI) which included discussions on sites like Twitter and Facebook about “policy directives, debates and implementations related to DHS.”

Ginger McCall, whose group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, obtained the manual through a Freedom of Information Act request, told The New York Times in 2012 said that DHS was essentially monitoring the Internet “for criticism of the government.”

Apparently that is “who we are.”

I anticipate CAIR objecting to the scrutiny of the social media of Muslims seeking entrance to the US as “racist.”

What do you do if you’ve made a promise to close a prison and begin to realize that the promise you made with such grandeur and pomp is not likely to come to pass and you are staring at a major embarrassment?

You empty the prison. Then there’s no reason to keep it open.

You make up a bullshit story about trading them for a POW who really was a deserter.
Obama traded ten, not five, Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl. The Dream Team of terrorists were the second batch. Obama released five the year before as am “olive branch.” Sixteen American soldiers lost their lives for the deserter.

The cost of stroking Obama’s ego.

Obama sprang Ibrahim Qosi in 2012. Where’d he end up?

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released a new video featuring a former Guantanamo detainee, Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani.

In July 2010, Qosi plead guilty to charges of conspiracy and material support for terrorism before a military commission. His plea was part of a deal in which he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors during his remaining time in US custody. Qosi was transferred to his home country of Sudan two years later, in July 2012.

Qosi joined AQAP in 2014 and became one of its leaders. Qosi and other AQAP commanders discussed their time waging jihad at length in the video, entitled “Guardians of Sharia.”

Qosi was a proponent of “individual jihad”, seen in the Charlie Hebdo attack and yes, in San Bernardino.

More of the cost of soothing Obama’s ego.

Obama is releasing dangerous terrorists and outright lying about it:

President Barack Obama says his administration will continue releasing terrorists from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, so long as those released are less dangerous than the jihadists currently fighting against the U.S. and its interests.

The bizarre argument comes in a new interview with Olivier Knox of Yahoo! News and is one of several comments in their discussion that reinforces the president’s stubborn nonchalance on issues related to jihad. Obama also shrugs off concerns about recidivism of former Guantanamo detainees, suggesting that only a “handful” of former detainees have returned to the fight and claiming that only “low-level” terrorists have been released from the detention facility. Both claims are demonstrably false.

You’ll definitely want to read the whole thing.

Obama’s claim that Gitmo is a recruiting tool for terrorists is pure horse crap. ISIS never mentions Gitmo. Neither does the Taliban. Only Obama. It’s simply a hammer with which to beat those who know better. And as I wrote last month, there would be no better recruiting tool for Islamic radicalism than holding violent Islamic radicals on US soil. These two stories have Obama hubris and ego as the common thread.

Barack Obama’s ego and hubris are costing American lives. Islamists must clearly realize that they have a friend in high places. After all, the future must not belong to those who would embarrass the Obama.

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.

    @Bill, #118:

    Cutting taxes for the middle class, encouraging economic growth, securing the border, taking radical Islamic terrorism seriously (for a change) and proposing determined action against ISIS is all much more credible than “Hope and Change”.

    For the most part he’s saying what his target audience wants to hear, without worrying much about what he might have said previously. He seems to get a pass on any contradictions.

    Bullcrap. Trump hasn’t been given a pass on anything. The Democrats, GOPe and MSM examine every word he says to find ways to use them against him.

    I totally agree with Trump that the invasion of Iraq was one of the worst blunders in U.S. history, and that we would have been enormously better off had we spent the $2 trillion or so it cost on modernization of the U.S. infrastructure. My impression is that the right gives him a pass on that opinion. They seem to pretend he never said any such thing. They don’t seem to be especially bothered by his generally positive attitude toward unions. He’s a member of the Screen Actors’ Guild, and receives an annual union pension. I think he gets a pass from the right on that, too. He asserts that his plan to close tax loopholes will shift more of the tax burden to the wealthy. While I have my doubts, that certainly does seem contrary to republican philosophy. He seems to approve of bombing as an effective approach to ISIS, so long as it isn’t pointed out that this is what the Obama administration has been doing for over a year now. Trump would do more of it.

    I can’t believe the guy said we need to take out terrorists’ families. Trump, on Fox and Friends December 2, 2015:

    “They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. When they say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families.”

    His supporters hardly reacted. It’s as if he never even said it, or, worse yet, as if it were more evidence that he knows how to deal with ISIS.

    Common Sense

    @Greg: Hind sight is 20/20 Greg. Most people would agree at this time. What is just as bad is pulling out like to quickly and allowing that investment and those live’s sacrificed to be for less than nothing. Obola told America that Iraq was stable which was a lie, he told us ISIS was a JV team of farmers and teachers which was a lie, told us ISIS is contained another lie, Al Qaeda is on their heels another lie, told us if your like your health insurance and/or doctor you can keep them “period” a lie, and now he tells us climate change is our greatest challenge which is a lie. He accuses Republicans getting all spun up about terrorism but climate change the wackos are doing the same. Obola fails to even acknowledge that radical islamic terrorists even exist!!

    And you find this somehow unacceptable (assuming you are talking about Trump and not Obama)? Anyone that works for a living would like to hear about tax cuts. Most likely, liberals running for office don’t speak to masses of those types often, so THEY promise free college, free healthcare, free housing, free phones and free food. Everything but freeDOM.

    Also, many of those in Trump’s audience are sick and tired of illegal immigrants flooding into our nation and having to foot the bill, so speaking to securing the border and curtailing illegal immigration appeals to them, as well. Liberal audiences see them as fellow votes which THEY can watch the working American pay for, so they care not so much about curtailing illegal immigration.

    Do you have evidence of Trump telling one audience one thing and then telling another audience something different?
