The Daily News from the mountain monitoring station.
If you sat through the entire dreadful press conference Obama gave at the "big summit in Turkey" here's what you heard.
The first four journalists asked him how , if ISIS is clearly getting stronger and bigger, he could claim to have "contained" them. Obama got pissed off and said his "advisors" were sure his plan to just bomb them was working. Of course, he neglected to mention that any military officers who did not go along with that have been retired or transferred to Siberia. His "advisors" consist of liberal college professors and career bureaucrats who never go outside their air-conditioned offices in D.C.
He said, in response to a question about why we don't just go in there and kick their asses, that yes we have the best military in the world, but we can't send it in against ISIL because we would have causalities. What a great leader in this time of crisis.
But the most important thing he said, I thought, was that there is no way to stop attacks like that which took place in Paris, and we should just accept we are going to get hit too. That raised the hair on the back of my neck. ISIL has announced it's going to hit Washington and other American cities in the near future, sounds bad.
16 State Governors have said they won't accept "syrian" immigrants in the wake of the Paris disaster. This because at least one of the attackers in Paris got there by coming in through Greece claiming to be a refugee. ISIS is crowing that it has infiltrated 5000 dedicated Jihadis into the West with the refugees since April of 2015. Obama then said, at the conference , that the immigrants were "orphans, old people, mothers and fathers." He clearly hasn't been watching the news. Even the journalists in the audience were rolling their eyes and smiling at that gaffe. Obama's spokesman went on television yesterday in D.C. and told the country that "there is a very intense and careful" vetting process for these refugees. People on the news are asking how that could be? Is there some secret data base in Syria we can dial into? More B.S. from D.C. telling people "All's well." when it isn't.
On an aside, Al Jazeera is slipping their native moslem correspondents back on the news, and some of these are describing the attackers in Paris as "so called terrorists." I'd love to know what these guys and girls think the shooters and bombers really are.
