You can search the history of mankind, and you will never find a successful society that, when under attack, did not clearly define its enemies and gather its resources together in order to vigorously fight those enemies by means of education, law enforcement, and military means when necessary. A society that fails to do this does not survive.
Notice the words “clearly define its enemies” in the above. We as Americans must end the pusillanimous evasion of truth regarding Islam that hangs over our society today like the grisly smell of death hangs over a charnel house. We must come to grips with a most paramount question: “Does our President and his administration have the courage to clearly define America’s enemy, an enemy that has declared its intentions repeatedly and openly over the past 30 years and has only grown more brazen as each decade goes by?” This enemy is radical Islamic terrorism.
Barack Obama and his hopeful successor, Hillary Clinton, have steadfastly refused to mention the words “radical,” “Islamic,” and “terrorism” in their speeches and discussions. They have played the role of ignorant stooges in regards to one of the most nefarious threats ever to face our nation, a threat that high school students can grasp when explained to them. Yet these two disingenuous liberals declare themselves to be enlightened leaders of a modern America and ask for our political support so as to be able to continue directing the federal government in Washington. What bizarre conjurings dwell in their warped and pygmy minds to make them believe they deserve such a role?
In the aftermath of the horrific Orlando, Florida massacre Sunday morning, in which over 50 individuals were killed and 53 severely wounded, President Obama came before us to speak on this atrocity. Thankfully he was able to brand this shooting an act of terror. But shamefully he was unable to utter the critically needed words “radical Islamic terrorism.” Is he going to continue to play this inexcusable role of useful idiot to Islamism as our FBI and other security forces try bravely to combat this terrorist scourge going forward? Even in face of the fact that the perpetrator of the massacre was clearly a Muslim, clearly a radical, and clearly a killer?
The gunman, Omar Mateen, shouted out “Alahu Akbar” as he was gunning down over 100 of the customers in the Orlando nightclub, Pulse. Prior to the attack he pledged allegiance to ICIS. He was born of Afghani parents, has made inflammatory comments to co-workers in the past, and was heard praying in a foreign language by police on the scene. In addition, ICIS has claimed responsibility for the shooting on their website, Amaq News.
A sane, rational leader would have no trouble concluding from these facts that this was more than just a “hate crime.” It was an act of “radical Islamic terrorism,” and one more atrocity in a chain of atrocities that have plagued us for several decades.
Dr. Sebastian Gorka has summed up this issue quite dramatically. He is an American expert on irregular warfare, including counterinsurgency and counterterrorism, and a distinguished professor of Military Theory at the Marine Corps University: He stated on the Maria Bartiromo Show, Sunday morning, June 12th shortly after the attack:
“This should not be called a tragedy. This is not an Amtrack train being derailed. This is part of the global jihadi strategy. It is not an accident. It is war against America….It is not a hate crime. It is part of an ideological military assault on [our country]….We have arrested 101 people linked to ICIS on U.S. soil since the caliphate was declared. This attack, in part, was facilitated by the policies of this administration, President Obama and Secretary Clinton, that have allowed political correctness into the threat assessment. Today I beg the White House. Stop with the political correctness. We need to destroy this enemy before more innocent people, gay, straight, black, white, brown, yellow are murdered on U.S. soil.” Link
Yet President Obama, true to the leftist appeasement mindset that comprises his persona, concludes in front of the nation that we need to show sympathy for the victims and begin to think rationally about seriously controlling guns in America. Why cannot he bring himself forcefully to face the real enemy attacking us? Because he himself is a crypto sympathizer of Islam, if not an actual worshiper. Thus he cannot possibly face the fact that members of the religion he reveres could do such unspeakable acts as what ICIS is perpetrating.
Moreover the Obama administration has been open to numerous Islamic advisors and organizations for its policy determinations. Obama has also had Muslim influence throughout his upbringing. This makes it very difficult for him to face up to the stark metaphysics of the Islamic religion, which preach war and violence against the West 109 times in the Koran. This is not a religion of peace; it is a totalitarian way of life that molds young impressionable minds to migrate to Western lands and subject them to destruction.

The Muslim Brotherhood
In his riveting pamphlet, The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration, Frank Gaffney, former Reagan Administration official and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, produces four highly documented case studies on the following members of the Obama administration:
- Huma Abedin – Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff.
- Rashad Hussain – Deputy Associate White House Counsel.
- Dalia Mogahed – White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based Partnerships.
- Mohamed Magid – Advisor to Obama’s Attorney General and various officials in the Defense Department.
Gaffney’s conclusion? There is “ample evidence that the Obama administration has afforded individuals with documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood considerable access to its policy-making circles….[U]nder President Obama the United States has adopted policies increasingly aligned with the demands of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations, including notably, the Organization for Islamic Cooperation.”
In addition, numerous other Muslim advisors, intellectuals and policy wonks have been part of Obama’s two terms, starting with the President’s trusted senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. Included also would be Areef Alikhan in the Department of Homeland Security, Kareem Shora on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Mohamed Elibiary on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Nawar Shora, a Senior Advisor to the Civil Rights and Liberties Office, Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour, a Patron of Obama during the 1980s, and Malik Obama, the older half-brother of Barack Obama who is in charge of international investments for the Muslim Brotherhood. A simple Google search of the above names verifies them.
America is at war with a primitive and totalitarian ideology that operates under the guise of a religion. Its guiding Koran has relentlessly galvanized Muslims for over a thousand years to make war on Western societies until all the earth is under the yoke of Islam. All religions, all infidels must be subjected to the word of Allah, if not willingly by Sharia law, then by force and terrorism.
We have seen this war play out in our streets and cities throughout the country for two decades now via terrorist attacks on peaceful American citizens. This war has been hideously exacerbated because of the quisling natures of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, neither of whom can bring themselves to clearly define the enemy that radical Islam represents to us. Until a new, tough, smart and vigilant President is elected to office, we as Americans will be under siege.
