Islamic terrorists have killed hundreds in recent weeks and their spread has sparked worldwide travel warnings. With that in mind, here’s a direct quote from the President of the United States about the announcement that a conference on climate change in Paris will not be postponed: “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be.”
Obama actually said that:
Yep, terrorists are shuddering in fear at climate change alarmists’ refusal to cancel a conference where ISIS’ (and others) atrocities will be blamed on fossil fuel emissions.
I can only imagine what would have been said if Winston Churchill, after the first London Blitz, responded “the best rebuke to this is to not cancel the Art Fair, am I right!?”
Unless something changes quick we really are screwed beyond recovery.
(h/t Allahpundit at Hot Air)
In all seriousness, can the country endure 14 more months of this utter bullshit without being irreparably harmed (even though it probably already is)?
ISIL’s still not the varsity team, President Barack Obama said Sunday, but if Republicans running for president and in Congress continue to respond to attacks by playing off fears, they’re doing the terrorists’ work for them.
A Republican reaction that’s tried to block refugees from entering the country — and members of the media whom he blamed for lacking perspective in coverage over the past week — give in to fear as the terrorists want, help them recruit and let a group of people who’d have no hope of actually defeating American forces on the battlefield win anyway.
Upending American policy and talking about Christian-Muslim tests for entry that he said accept ISIL’s terms of a religious war will increase the threat of more attacks. “Prejudice and discrimination helps ISIL and undermines our national security,” Obama said.
Even as Obama credited the group, also known as the Islamic State, for the Paris attacks, and, for the first time publicly, for taking down a Russian passenger jet in Egypt, Obama repeatedly spoke about the limitations of the terrorist network that two years ago he referred to as the “JV team” — a remark that his critics still cite as evidence that he underestimates the threat.
“They’re a bunch of killers with good social media,” Obama told reporters Sunday. They are “dangerous,” he said, but, he added: “Our way of life is stronger. We have more to offer.”
Letting that happen, Obama said, or letting politicians get away with reactions like proposing a religious test for entry — as he several times condemned Republican presidential candidates for doing — is the essence of giving in.
“They can’t beat us on the battlefield, so they try to terrorize us into being afraid, into changing our patterns of behavior, into abandoning our allies and partners into retreating from the world,” Obama said. “As president I will not let that happen.”
Yeah, ISIS really appreciates Republicans’ help and shudders in fear of the president who won’t say “Islamic terrorism” and believes “climate change” is the world’s biggest security threat.

“Widows and orphans”? OK.

But on the plus side for the refugees, noted anti-capitalist Michael Moore’s invited them to stay at one of his homes (it’ll teach them that in the U.S. even leftists who loathe greed have multiple houses). Moore also called Michigan Governor Snyder “un-American,” which is a back-handed compliment coming from a guy who does nothing but bitch about how horrible America is.

Because when you think “woman who stayed married to a serial cheater for political reasons,” you think “family values.” But it’s even worse than that:
What’s really pro-family: Supporting equal pay, paid leave, affordable child care, and Planned Parenthood. #GOPdebate

Yeah, here’s Hillary’s “pro-family” hero:
Anybody who thinks that’s a terrible number is considered “anti-family” by this sociopath who’s dangerously close to being our next president.
Even though Obama’s been elected and re-elected nationally, it’s caused a huge shift right in state governments:

On the national level:
President Obama has lost nearly 70 seats in the House since taking office and more seats in midterm elections than any president since Harry Truman.
Democrats have suffered a net loss of at least 69 House seats since 2008, with the possibility that Republicans could pick up even more as the final 2014 midterm races are called.
Senate Democrats have not fared much better, losing a net of at least 13 seats since Obama took office.
Dems know that, which is why they’re fine with the White House going around Congress (and Hillary promising to do it even more) and using the EPA and other agencies in pushes to federalize everything to skirt state legislatures. The Republicans need to do a LOT more to stop the power grab or all the non-White House Republican gains in the world won’t mean much.

Technically Cruz is carrying the broken shotgun the wrong way around, but even still I’d like the tech geniuses at Gizmondo to explain how Cruz’s gun could have fired vs. what could go wrong by following Biden’s brilliant advice.
At first when I read that Bush had to apologized to France I thought it might have something to do with an insult of Jerry Lewis, but nope:
US presidential hopeful Jeb Bush has apologised to France for referencing their working week to insult a rival.
In light-hearted comments to reporters, Mr Bush said he had done a “disservice to the French” by using them to mock Marco Rubio’s senate voting record.
“I made the mistake of saying that the Congress operates on a French work week,” he was reported as saying.
He said he had since learned that the French work longer hours than the Germans do.
Jeb Can Fix It! — Probably by pledging that if elected he’ll make Bastille Day a federal holiday in the U.S. and then hope nobody notices the irony.

Hillary Clinton went on a pander-palooza again today:
Hillary Clinton held a private meeting in Chicago on Monday with the families of prominent victims of recent gun violence.
The mothers of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Michael Brown and Tamir Rice were all present at the meeting with the former secretary of state.
And yet Hillary won’t give the time of day to this mother and parents of people who died on her watch:
Hillary’s response to that mother:

The ridiculous Reuters piece closed this way — and keep in mind we were supposed to be talking about guns:
When the call of conscience trumps habit and history, surprising things can happen. From Jim Crow to women’s suffrage, it is only when men and women have brought their higher selves into the political realm that we have seen systems radically change.
It might not be as hard as we fear.
In other words, the 2nd Amendment is equatable with racism and sexism.
Speaking of Jesus, what’s the bible say about bearing false witness?
