Jeb Bush said he wouldn’t ban Syrian refugees from entering the U.S., separating himself from most Republican governors and his party’s presidential field as he pitched himself as the most experienced candidate running for the nomination.
“The answer to this is not to ban people from coming,” Bush said Tuesday in an interview with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann for Bloomberg Politics’ With All Due Respect. “The answer is to lead, to resolve the problem in Syria.”
Even Chuckie Schumer sees Donald Trump’s Trojan Horse lead and says: “A “pause” on refugees may be necessary.” Hillary2016 stands with JeBush on this one and it is a calamity for both. Can’t fix it.
In 2012 we pinpointed, before and after the fact, the exact hour when Mitt Romney lost the election. It was our “meltdown” moment. We remember that day almost as if it happened this past Saturday. Indeed, it was on a Saturday when Willard destroyed himself.
On that Saturday Willard “Mitt” Romney decided that the best way to wiggle himself out of the many attacks his foolish campaign was subject to was to name his choice for Vice President. Instead of a moment of strength, a great moment for his campaign, the fact that Willard tried to escape his troubles by changing the topic to the VP race only highlighted the explosive sign of weakness and the mess to come in November.
We exploded in rage on that Saturday. Not only did Romney make a Saturday morning announcement in competition with the Olympics – Romney also decided to turn the election into an “issues” election with his selection of Paul Ryan and a Great Lakes strategy – instead of the referendum on Obama’s failed presidency, as Romney had promised.
On that Saturday morning in 2012 Mitt Romney threw away the election.
This past Saturday night, Hillary Clinton threw away the election, presuming she gets the nomination.
On Saturday night Hillary decided to wage war on termites. Hillary discovered two termites named Bernie and Marty in her house – so Hillary burned down her house. Now the two termites are entirely dead but Hillary is exposed to the elements, homeless.
That’s the best explanation we can come up with to deal with Hillary’s suicidal Saturday surrender. Are Bernie Sanders or Martin O’Malley such mortal threats that Hillary had to finish them off in the debate at the cost of Youtube moments that will be used against her in the general election?
Hillary Clinton, the brave woman who in 2008 threatened she would “obliterate” Iran and said so to make her policy lines clear in order that Iran would not miscalculate was nowhere to be found. Hillary Clinton, the woman who in June 2014 said that the many illegal immigrants breaking into the United States through the southern border, many of them children, had to be sent back to Mexico, could not be found on the stage.
That Hillary has been replaced with the Hillary that supports Barack Obama’s deal with Iran which will provide Iran with $150 billion they can use to expand their Persian Empire of Terror. That Hillary after the terror attacks in Paris persisted in her defense of potentially bringing in a horde of killers to the United States draped in the hoods of “refugee” is more than shameful. It is catastrophic.
Hillary Clinton, must have forgotten that when she was the wife of then Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton the Mariel refugee crisis erupted. Mariel refugees from Castro’s Cuba included criminals and psychopaths purposely shipped out by Fidel. Thereafter a riot and escape from Fort Chaffee in Arkansas which enraged Governor Clinton eventually contributed to his re-election defeat.
All that hard history was forgotten on Saturday night when Hillary Clinton blew herself up like a Muslim in Paris suicide bomber:
CBS’s John Dickerson Asks Democratic Candidates If They Use The Phrase “Radical Islam,” None Will
At the second DNC presidential debate, CBS News’s John Dickerson asked the three Democratic candidates whether they can defeat “radical Islam” without using the phrase.
DICKERSON: You have been making the case when you talk about lack of forward vision, you’re essentially saying that Secretary Clinton lacks that vision and this critique matches up with this discussion of language. The critique is that the softness of language betrays a softness of approach. So if this language — if you don’t call it by what it is, how can your approach be effective to the cause? That’s the critique.
DICKERSON: Secretary Clinton, you mentioned radical jihadists. Marco Rubio, also running for president, said that this attack showed and the attack in Paris showed that we are at war with radical Islam. Do you agree with that characterization, radical Islam?
CLINTON: I don’t think we’re at war with Islam. I don’t think we’re at war with all Muslims. I think we’re at war with jihadists who have —
DICKERSON: Just to interrupt. He didn’t say all Muslims. He just said radical Islam. Is that a phrase you don’t…
CLINTON: I think THAT you can talk about Islamists who clearly are also jihadists, but I think it’s not particularly helpful to make the case that Senator Sanders was just making that I agree with, that we’ve got to reach out to Muslim countries.
We’ve got to have them be part of our coalition. If they hear people running for president who basically shortcut it to say we are somehow against Islam, that was one of the real contributions, despite all the other problems, that George W. Bush made after 9/11 when he basically said after going to a Mosque in Washington, we are not at war with Islam or Muslims.
We are at war with violent extremism. We are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression. And, yes, we are at war with those people. But I don’t want us to be painting with too broad a brush.
DICKERSON: The reason I ask is you gave a speech at Georgetown University in which you said, that it was important to show, quote, “respect, even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand and in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.” Can you explain what that means in the context of this kind of barbarism?
CLINTON: I think with this kind of barbarism and nihilism, it’s very hard to understand, other than the lust for power, the rejection of modernity, the total disregard for human rights, freedom, or any other value that we know and respect.
Historically, it is important to try to understand your adversary in order to figure out how they are thinking, what they will be doing, how they will react. I plead that it’s very difficult when you deal with ISIS and organizations like that whose behavior is so barbaric and so vicious that it doesn’t seem to have any purpose other than lust for killing and power and that’s very difficult to put ourselves in the other shoe.
DICKERSON: Just quickly, do either of you, radical Islam, do either of you use that phrase?
SANDERS: I don’t think the term is what’s important. What is important to understand is we have organizations, whether it is ISIS or Al Qaida, who do believe we should go back several thousand years. We should make women third-class citizens, that we should allow children to be sexually assaulted, that they are a danger to modern society.
And that this world, with American leadership, can and must come together to destroy them. We can do that. And it requires an entire world to come together, including in a very active way, the Muslim nations.
DICKERSON: Governor O’ Malley, you have been making the case when you talk about lack of forward vision, you’re essentially saying that Secretary Clinton lacks that vision and this critique matches up with this discussion of language. The critique is that the softness of language betrays a softness of approach. So if this language — if you don’t call it by what it is, how can your approach be effective to the cause? that’s the critique.
O’ MALLEY: I believe calling it what it is, is to say radical jihadis. That’s calling it what it is. But John, let’s not fall into the trap of thinking that all of our Muslim American neighbors in this country are somehow our enemies here. They are our first line of defense.
And we are going to be able to defeat ISIS on the ground there, as well as in this world, because of the Muslim Americans in our country and throughout the world who understand that this brutal and barbaric group is perverting the name of a great world religion. And now, like never before, we need our Muslim American neighbors to stand up and to — and to be a part of this.
This is not mush coming from Hillary Clinton’s mouth, it is filth. Our first article this year featured the Muslim President of Egypt specifically naming Muslims as the problem when it comes to terrorism:
Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live? Impossible!
I am saying these words here at Al Azhar, before this assembly of scholars and ulema—Allah Almighty be witness to your truth on Judgment Day concerning that which I’m talking about now. [snip]
I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move… because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.
Muslim President of Egypt Al-Sisi righteously blames the entire Islamic population of the world, the Umma, but from Hillary Clinton, filth.
Hillary Clinton would not use the words “radical Islam” even as the blood soaked mounds of Islam’s victims still laid piled up in a Paris theater and morgues. Hillary on Saturday failed the test of leadership. Hillary Clinton refuses to denounce Barack Obama’s polices of appeasement and weakness – if not outright treachery.
Hours after the Koran Killers struck in Paris, Barack Obama continued to release the other Islamic killers luxuriously caged in Guantanamo. From Hillary… silence.
The leftist Atlantic declares the Quran/Koran Kooks to be the problem:
In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as “not Islamic” and as al-Qaeda’s “jayvee team,” statements that reflected confusion about the group, and may have contributed to significant strategic errors. [snip]
We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world.
The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior. Its rise to power is less like the triumph of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a group whose leaders the Islamic State considers apostates) than like the realization of a dystopian alternate reality in which David Koresh or Jim Jones survived to wield absolute power over not just a few hundred people, but some 8 million. [snip]
We are misled in a second way, by a well-intentioned but dishonest campaign to deny the Islamic State’s medieval religious nature. [snip]
The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.
The Islamic State is Islamic. That’s a truth Hillary Clinton failed to tell on Saturday night. That truth will haunt her.
Hillary Clinton had an opportunity to let the world know that the Islamic State is not a junior varsity team, nor is it contained, both lies from Barack Obama’s mouth.
Barack Obama wants to bring in ten thousand “refugees” which cannot be vetted because they either have no documents or they have forged documents. This is what Donald Trump has intelligently described as “one of the great Trojan horses.”
The moment Hillary Clinton lost the general election was when she said ten thousand was not enough. She wants 65,000 refugees and she compounds that foolishness with the lie that they can be vetted.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lie when they say these “refugees” can be vetted. Further, today Barack Obama declared that he will not impose “religious tests” (meaning persecuted Christians will not be exclusively given the religious asylum benefit that “persecuted” Muslims from places such as Chechnya have been given). What about children only? Let’s call them what they would turn into “anchor babies” for terrorists.
Europe and America are undergoing a soft invasion. Most citizens see what our “leaders” insist is not there.
The Trojan War ended when the Trojans themselves brought into the walled city of Troy the masters of their destruction hidden inside a great wooden horse. Troy and the great wooden horse is remembered to this day.
The fall of Troy will never be forgotten. The Trojan War was not just about Trojan prince Paris and his stolen beauty from Greece, Helen. It was a clash of civilizations. The once great Troy fell to the Greeks. The Trojan ruins disappeared from history but Troy survives in the imagination and in great epic poems about a civilization gone with the wind.
The leaders of Troy and that emotional boy prince Paris made foolish decisions. Our leaders too, including Hillary Clinton, are making many foolish decisions and cowardly statements. Some on the left and some on the right believe that the Islamic terror attacks on the city of light will benefit leaders such as Hillary Clinton who have long experience and finally, finally, end the summer of Trump and finish off all the outsiders. We don’t think so.
As the evidence mounts that some of the Muslim killers came in under the immigration tide, as Europe’s leaders face the wrath of their populations, as illegal immigration and terrorism increasingly link in the public mind, as further attacks loom, as his prescient statements on oil and ISIS are remembered, Donald Trump will continue to bask in endless summer.
More so than ever the Muslim killers of Paris bring an end to an era:
If you’re one of the millions of young people who enjoyed this period of relative comfort, I’m sorry to tell you that it’s coming to an end. If Madrid, London, or Mumbai didn’t wake you up, Paris should. In the last week, three major terrorist attacks—not just in France, but in Lebanon and against a Russian airliner in Egypt—have killed more than 400 people. ISIS has claimed responsibility for all three massacres. A year ago, you could have said that the terrorists who wanted to hit the West couldn’t pull it off, or that those who could pull it off it didn’t have the ambition. You can’t say that anymore. [snip]
For those of us living stateside, the last 14 years have been pretty easy. Those days are over. The people who hit Paris will try to hit us here, and they just proved they can do it.
The Muslim killers in Paris were an opportunity for Hillary Clinton to speak the truth. That opportunity came and went along with her chances to ever be president.
Perhaps Hillary will overcome Barack Obama’s machinations to keep the nomination from her. We hope so. But a general election victory? That was blown up in the streets of Paris and in a debate stage in Iowa.
