If you contract appendicitis there are a couple of routes which can be followed theoretically. One is to remove the appendix surgically. The other is to treat the symptoms, i.e. administer pain medications and antibiotics. The proper approach to to vanquish the disease. Surgically remove it. The other approach is to treat it symptomatically- and that could kill you.
ISIS is a disease. obama has decided to treat it symptomatically. As John Brennan made clear yesterday, it’s not working. And people are dying for it. In the face of an adversary, obama wants us to change the way we live to accommodate ISIS and radical Islamism. We have to do soul searching. We have to change our language. We can’t say “radical Islam.” We have to be acquiesce to them so as not to offend.
There are warning signs and for the life of me I do not understand why obama is ignoring them.

“…I’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites…”
There it is. Doesn’t it seem logical to pay attention to those who are frequent visitors to ISIL websites? Hello?
If someone’s on your radar pay attention to their posting on Facebook. Omar Mateen telegraphed his intentions on Facebook.
Mateen’s final post was a warning: ‘In the next few days you will see attacks from the Islamic state in the usa’.
Four years ago, following the Aurora shooting I wrote a post here titled “Body armor was the key”:
Why would someone be buying multiple weapons, large amounts of ammunition AND body armor within a short period of time?
The body armor was the red flag. Had someone been asking the right questions about the body armor this shooting might have been prevented.
Omar Mateen was asking about body armor and bulk ammunition. The gun shop owner called the FBI. The flag doesn’t get much more red than that, yet nothing happened, probably because of political correctness. We can no longer say something if we see something because we’ve been browbeaten as bigots by the wretched regime.
A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks…
“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”
I saw a person on TV say that he saw many packages being delivered to the house where Syed Farook and his wife established a bomb factory.
And why didn’t they say anything?
They “decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.”
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch has released hundreds of pages of FBI memos and other documentsrevealing that, in 2012, the agency purged its anti-terrorism training curricula of material determined by an undisclosed group of “Subject Matter Experts” (SME) to be “offensive” to Muslims. The excised material included references linking the Muslim Brotherhood to terrorism, tying al Qaeda to the 1993 World Trade Center and Khobar Towers bombings, and suggesting that “young male immigrants of Middle Eastern appearance … may fit the terrorist profile best.”
Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood killer, similarly escaped scrutiny. It appears likely that this has contributed to the mass killings.
The symptoms of the ISIL disease? Violence, persecution and death in Syria, Libya and Iraq, the refugee crisis and the radicalization of Muslims here and abroad.
Obama’s approach? Treat the symptoms. Force us to change the way we live. Make us absorb the pain. Force us to absorb and pay for the refugees. Put us at risk to diseases being carried in by refugees. Force us to change the way we speak. Take guns from law abiding citizens.
obama did say we could absorb more attacks. Thus we have this perfect storm of situations:
- The FBI cannot properly vet the 10,000 person refugee stream into the US.
- The CIA Director tells us that the refugee stream is being used to put operatives in place.
- obama wants to accelerate the refugee stream. hillary wants a 500% increase in the number of Syrian refugees that cannot be properly vetted.
Whose side are these people really on? Why isn’t obama really acting on the obvious and effective means of anticipating radical attacks?
