The President’s Speech
Thomas Sowell

POTUS Obama gave speech to nation 12-06-15 in which he restated his views about recent California Terrorist Shootings, US response to continuing ISIS aggression, and related issues.

POTUS Obama gave speech to nation 12-06-15 in which he restated his views about recent California Terrorist Shootings, US response to continuing ISIS aggression, and related issues.

When the President of the United States asks the television networks to set aside time for him to broadcast a speech from the Oval Office, we can usually expect that he has something new to say. But President Obama’s speech Sunday night was just a rehash of what he has been saying all along, trying to justify policies that have repeatedly turned out disastrously for America and our allies.

This was not a speech about how the Obama administration is going to do anything differently in the future. It was a speech about how Obama’s policies were right all along. Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt.

The president struck a familiar chord when he emphasized that we shouldn’t blame all Muslims for the actions of a few. How many people have you heard blaming all Muslims?

Even if 90 percent of all Muslims are fine people, and we admit 10,000 refugees from the Middle East, does that mean that we need not be concerned about adding a thousand potential terrorists — even after we have seen in San Bernardino what just two terrorists can do?

The first responsibility of any government is to protect the people already in the country. Even in this age of an entitlement mentality, no one in a foreign country is entitled to be in America if the American people don’t want them here.

Obama’s talk about how we should not make religious distinctions might make sense if we were talking about handing out entitlements. But we are talking about distinguishing between different populations posing different levels of danger to the American people.

When it comes to matters of life and death, that is no time for the kind of glib, politically correct rhetoric that Barack Obama specializes in.

Obama may think of himself as a citizen of the world, but he was elected President of the United States, not head of a world government, and that does not authorize him to gamble the lives of Americans for the benefit of people in other countries.

The illusion that you can take in large numbers of people from a fundamentally different culture, without jeopardizing your own culture — and everything that depends on it — should have been dispelled by many counterproductive social consequences in Europe, even aside from the fatal dangers of terrorists.

Most refugees in the Middle East can be helped in the Middle East, and many Americans would undoubtedly be willing to financially help Muslim countries like Jordan or Egypt to care for these refugees in societies more compatible with their beliefs and values.

The history of millions of European immigrants who came here in centuries past was fundamentally different from what is happening in our own times.

First of all, those immigrants were stopped at Ellis Island to be checked medically and otherwise, and were allowed to get off that island to go ashore only after they had met whatever legal standards there were. Otherwise, they were sent back where they came from.

More fundamentally, people came here to assimilate into the American society they found, not to become isolated enclaves of aggrieved foreigners, demanding that Americans adjust to their languages, their values and their ways of life.

Like so much that President Obama says, his talk of “stronger screening” of people coming into the United States is sheer fantasy, when even his own intelligence officials and law enforcement officials say that we have no adequate data on which to base a meaningful screening of Syrian refugees.

When Obama spoke of the danger of our being “drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria,” that was yet another fantasy, that wars are optional.

When terrorists are at war with us, we cannot simply declare that war to be over, whenever it is politically convenient, as Obama did when he withdrew American troops from Iraq, against the advice of his own generals. That is what led to the rise of ISIS.

Our only real choice is between destroying ISIS over there or waiting for them to come over here and start killing Americans. As in other cases, Obama has made a choice that reflects politics and rhetoric, rather than reality.

ANDREW NAPOLITANO: Tyranny of Obama’s drone killings

Thomas Cromwell was the principal behind-the-scenes fixer for much of the reign of King Henry VIII. He engineered the interrogations, convictions and executions of many whom Henry needed out of the way, including his two predecessors as fixer and even the king’s second wife, Queen Anne. When Cromwell’s son, Gregory, who became sickened as he watched… Continue reading “The Tyranny of One Man’s Opinion” »

Only a few days after the Boston Bombings, the media has evoked a virtual cornucopia of characterizations of the tragic event perpetrated on Patriots Day during the annual Boston Marathon with its record 26,000+ participants. The one word that you will not hear them ascribe to the catastrophe, however, is the one word that is the most appropriate of all, and which identifies the true mastermind behind it. That word is: Continue reading “Who’s Really Behind The Boston Bombings” »

The Evil Face of OUR Adversary!

America Under Attack: The Aftermath

[Editor’s note: The two untouched photographs above, published by national news services, capture the massive explosions of the World Trade Center twin towers on Manhattan Island after two terrorist-hijacked commercial airline planes slammed into the world famous 140-story skyscrapers. Readily discernible in the fire and smoke of the explosion, from both of the different perspectives of the photos, is the evil face of the true adversary behind these unspeakably dastardly deeds. These amazing photos ostensibly bear the very image of Satan himself, and presumably are God’s miraculous proof to us of the evil one’s existence and that he is the ultimate “terrorist” behind the hatred-driven havoc wreaked upon America on September 11, 2001. The image on the left bears the devil’s face against the backdrop of a distorted cross, representative of Satan’s counterfeit portrayals of himself as the Messiah. The image on the right bears a lion-like face a la the Biblical description of the devil who roams about on Earth “AS a roaring lion,” mimicking “The Lion of the Tribe of Judah,” and deceiving multitudes of untaught into believing that it is The Lion of the Tribe of Judah who is perpetrating the diabolical schemes that he himself, Satan, authors.

From the Editor: September 11, 2011, hard to fathom as it is, will mark ten years since the horrific events that occurred on 9-11-01, now referenced in American lexicon simply but utterly contemptuously as, “9-11.” In light of that, we reprise, as I have each year since, the article I somehow in the dazed and shaken emotional state shared with virtually every other American composed the day after, which has proven to be both prescient and prophetic. I knew unequivocally that day, as I watched along with stunned viewers around the world the surreal events unfold on our television screens, that we were witnessing the collapse, not only of the Twin Towers, but, symbolically, the world’s economy, if not the prophesied “Fall of Babylon” foretold in Revelation 18. Though the news commentators and pundits were at the time unwilling on-air to express or even imply such ruminations, it was confirming and reaffirming to hear Alan Greenspan, the then Chairman of the Federal Reserve — the twelve banks that are the real albeit camoflauged command-and-control-center of the American and therefore the world’s economy — admit in a televised interview on a CNBC program not long ago regarding the 2008 global economic collapse that he too instinctively knew he was witnessing the collapse of the world economy when he flew over ground zero in a helicopter the day after 9-11 in order to see for himself the utter devastation and ruin wreaked at the hands of few fanatical foreign terrorists. My article regarding coming 9-11 repercussions, originally written and published the day after, follows.

“A Day that Will Live In Infamy”

Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001 2nd Plane Attack on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001

Dear Friends and Fellow-believers,

Regarding the tragic and incredible events of yesterday, September 11, 2001, another “day that will live in infamy,” some ten years ago, the Lord gave me a prophetic dream showing me, in essence, devastation of this sort taking place specifically in NY City. He also showed me in my discussion with Him about what transpired in the vision (far more than I can disclose here), that NYC was the epicenter of the financial, communication, commercial, and international political infrastructure of America, and hence the world. In the days following, He went on to tell me that there would come a time (I believe this is the beginning of that time) when everything that we have come to rely upon as being foundational to our individual and collective lives, the “foundations” of America and the free world, would be rocked, critically wounded, and indeed, some of them fatally wounded and destroyed.

By Dr. Billy Graham

September 7, 2011 – Billy Graham’s remarks given at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Friday, September 14, 2001, brought hope and healing to the shocked nation. They still hold power, 10 years later.

We come together today to affirm our conviction that God cares for us, whatever our ethnic, religious or political background may be. The Bible says that He is “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.”(1)

No matter how hard we try, words simply cannot express the horror, the shock and the revulsion we all feel over what took place in this nation on Tuesday morning. September 11 will go down in our history as a Day to Remember.

Today we say to those who masterminded this cruel plot, and to those who carried it out, that the spirit of this nation will not be defeated by their twisted and diabolical schemes. Some day those responsible will be brought to justice.

But today we come together in this service to confess our need of God. We’ve always needed God from the very beginning of this nation. But today we need Him especially. We’re involved in a new kind of warfare. And we need the help of the Spirit of God. Continue reading “A Day to Remember, A Day of Victory” »

Editor’s Note: Art Katz, a Jewish-born, modern-day prophet,  graduated to Glory in 2007, but shortly after the felling of the World Trade Center Twin Towers by Muslim extremists on September 11, 2001, he authored this prescient prophetic essay concerning the effects and prospective symbolic meaning represented in this dastardly and devil-inspired attack on the financial and military epicenters of the world.

There has been a great fall. More has come down than the great towers of the world’s financial center; it is the world itself that can never again be the same.

What security, confidence or trust can mankind be assured when even its impenetrable symbol of defense, the Pentagon, is itself penetrated? It is not that systems of security have momentarily failed and can henceforth be remedied and strengthened, but system itself; that is, what is wrought by man and constitutes the assured, assumed verities of life and safety—the taken-for-granted foundations of being itself—are themselves forever shaken!
