Only in America can a Socialist politician feel sure that his lies will go unquestioned by the news media. Too many Americans believe these lies, both from the President and our media. Those lies are getting Americans killed.
In 2009, President Barack Obama said, “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” The evidence says otherwise.
I can understand missing a few incidents, but by November 4th of that year, Muslims had committed 1682 violent attacks. That wasn’t enough of a clue for President Obama. The next day, November, 5th, a Muslim officer in the US Army shot and killed 13 servicemen at Fort Hood, Texas while shouting “allahu akbar”. The officer had been under investigation as a security threat, but the investigation was closed because the officer was Muslim. The Obama administration called the attack “workplace violence.”
It wasn’t workplace violence. It was religious terrorism. US soldiers paid with their lives while Obama hid behind political correctness.
In January of 2015, two Muslim brothers walked into the office of a French humor magazine Charlie Hebdo. The two terrorists murdered 12 people and injured 11 more with guns they had obtained illegally. French citizens are not allowed to carry firearms for self-defense. The victims died unarmed and defenseless.
In June of that year, an avowed racist with a criminal history passed his FBI background check and bought a gun in South Carolina. He shot 9 people in a black church. Carolina law made the church a gun free zone, so the victims were disarmed. President Obama said, “At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.” I’ve already shown you evidence the president ignored. The president lied and the major media never exposed him.
In July of 2015, an Oregon college student passed several background checks and bought several rifles. He then asked his fellow students if they were Christians. He shot his victims in the head if they said, “Yes.” The attack occurred on a junior college campus that is another gun free zone. Not even the one security guard was armed.
Responding to the attack, President Obama said, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws.” The president lied again. We have some 23 thousand firearms laws here in the US. The problem is not an absence of laws and regulations. Far from it. The problem is that murdering terrorists don’t, and won’t, obey gun laws. They never have. Not here in the US, and not anywhere else. That shouldn’t come as news to anyone. Let me show you more.
President Obama ignored the fact that criminals ignore gun laws. both in the United States and in other “advanced nations.” Our ignorance of European violence does not mean Europe is a safe place. There were 18 attacks by Muslim terrorists in Europe during the preceding 12 months. The terrorists used illegal weapons to kill and maim their disarmed victims. I mention the victims because most European citizens are denied the legal right to carry a firearm for self-defense. They are denied the right to keep a firearm accessible in their home. That is the same “gun control” that President Obama wants to import into the United States. Failure never stopped our President.
A mentally ill man got a gun and shot three innocent victims in a Louisiana movie Theater. As I mentioned, criminals and crazies don’t obey gun laws. President Obama said, “We are the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months.” I’ve showed you the contrary facts that violence is both widespread and frequent. Why didn’t the media tell you that?
A few months later, 9 Muslim terrorists attacked three separate targets in and near Paris, France. The terrorists again stabbed, shot, tortured and bombed their way through innocent and unarmed victims. The terrorists killed 137 people and injured an additional 368. That terrorism is not confined to Europe. We have it here in the United States.
In San Bernardino, California, a Muslim immigrant couple murdered 14 people and wounded an additional 24 at a year-end Christmas party. The office Christmas party was held at a “gun-free zone” so the victims were legally disarmed. Terrorists don’t obey gun free zone signs… even in California. The death toll would have been much higher but the bombs the terrorists left behind failed to detonate.
The terrorists had been screened several times by the FBI. They had no criminal history and bought their firearms legally in California. Background checks don’t stop terrorists, but that didn’t stop our president from proposing more of them.
President Obama said, “…we don’t know why they did it… We do not know their motivations… And we’re going to have to, I think, search ourselves as a society to make sure that we can take basic steps that would make it harder — not impossible, but harder — for individuals to get access to weapons.”
Mister President, California gun laws already made it extremely hard for an honest civilian to buy a firearm. Disarming honest civilians hasn’t stopped terrorists at all
In Orlando, Florida, a Muslim terrorists killed 49 victims and injured an additional 50 people at the Pulse nightclub. The murderer called 911 to announced his allegiance to ISIS and his dedication to Allah. The club was another “gun free zone” so the victims were disarmed by Florida law.
The murderer was a security contractor for the TSA. He had been reported for suspicious behavior by colleagues at work and by gun store employees. They contacted the FBI… who did nothing. The murderer passed several security background checks.
President Obama said “…our politics have conspired to make it as easy as possible for a terrorist or just a disturbed individual like those in Aurora and Newtown to buy extraordinarily powerful weapons… and they can do so legally.” The murderer used a 22 caliber rifle and a 9mm handgun. Neither is considered to be a high powered cartridge. The rifle was not an AR, and had no parts in common with an AR rifle. Facts don’t matter when you can tell unchallenged lies.
The president wasn’t done blaming firearms for the actions of terrorists. President Obama said, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.” Even the Washington Post called him a liar.
Within a month, Muslim terrorists would kill and injure hundreds more as they ran over families on a boardwalk in Nice, France and shot youngsters in a McDonald’s restaurant in Munich, Germany. Our President finds it easy to lie, but difficult to reach an obvious truth.
The American news media will never call President Obama a liar, but I will. I’ve shown you that he is. Why is this news to some?
