Weakness in the Face of Terror
Harlotte Spins a Web
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, June 13, 2016. Yesterday, Omar Mateen walked into a gay Orlando club and slaughtered as many people as he could. Fifty people were left for dead on the floor, and another 53 were taken to a local hospital. Many of the wounded are in critical condition. Harlotte would like to talk about this tragedy. She has asked for the pleasure and comfort of your presence at the breakfast table. She will be serving bacon and eggs with hot buttered rolls. I will be serving Irish coffees. We hope to see you soon.
How Many Must Die
Thank you for joining me this morning. Our nation is grieving. A radical Islamist terrorist born in the U.S. to Afghan parents pledged his allegiance to ISIS and slaughtered innocent American citizens. Mateen was known to the FBI. He was under investigation for ties to radical Islam, but the case went nowhere. Had he been detained, arrested and incarcerated all those murdered in Orlando would have been spared. It is time to change our way of thinking about radical Islam. It is time to change our way of dealing with people who are suspected of interacting with the enemy. We are at war, whether this president and this Congress declares it or not. The use of terror "watch lists" is inane. Those lists should represent individuals who are being arrested, detained or deported. If you make it to a list, it is time to make it to a jail. Waiting for an overt act of terror to occur before law enforcement steps in, is a very dangerous game. We need to lower the threshold for arrest and raise the bar on protecting America.
I was hoping to wake up this morning to find that that our nation had bombed ISIS headquarters to smithereens. I was hoping to wake up this morning to find that we had torn up the rules of engagement, and decided to go after the enemy full throttle, collateral damage be damned. My hopes were not realized, because in the end we have the same president we have had for these last almost eight years. His reactions to tragedies like this are always off. He never speaks about radical Islam. He never places blame where it belongs. He has far more invested in protecting Islam than in protecting our nation. That is who he is and if Hillary walks into the White House it will be the same. President Obama and Hillary deal with radical Islam by not addressing it. For them it is all about guns. They are incapable of rational thought and feelings. Their loyalties are skewed by an unwillingness to deal with the facts. We are at war and war is serious. We are at war and we have to go after the enemy with everything in our arsenal. We have to destroy ISIS and we have to do it now.
It is time to take a good look at our situation here at home and act upon what we know. We have pockets of Islamic communities in this country that do not wish to assimilate to an American way of life. We know that there are mosques in our nation that preach hatred. We know where they are and we know what they are doing. We also know, but refuse to acknowledge, the fact that in so many ways Islam is at odds with our belief system. We sugar coat the facts. We bend over backwards in an effort to be politically correct and sensitive. We cloak ourselves in fairy tales, and we behave like idiots. New York Mayor DeBlasio tied the hands of law enforcement and by doing so, left New Yorkers unprotected. He did so to please the Muslims. The man is a fool. A Kansas City mosque owned by an Islamic umbrella organization with strong ties to the U.S. arm of the Muslim Brotherhood has received millions of dollars in federal grants over the past several years. The time for being blind is over.
The Obama administration has done everything possible to make us vulnerable to attack from radical Islamic terrorists. It begins with the president's complete refusal to call this terror by its rightful name. It is impossible to effectively deal with a problem if the problem is not recognized for what it is. This administration scrubbed the records of Muslims tied to terror groups. Whistleblowers testified in the aftermath of the San Bernadino jihadist slaughter that the Obama administration closed down investigations into jihadists in our nation at the request of the Department of State and the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Division of the DHS. It was reported that since these Islamist groups were not designated as terrorist organizations, following the activities of individuals was a violation of their civil rights. This kind of stupidity cannot continue. We have terrorists in our midst, and we are standing idly by and letting them destroy us. I love this country. I want to see it restored to what it used to be before Obama, before this lackluster do-nothing Congress and before political correctness. I want to see the military restored to what it should be. Obama has destroyed this nation and the effects of his lawless meddling are being played out in dangerous fashion. We need to send a strong message to ISIS, and we need to do it immediately. We do not have the luxury of time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the Orlando terror attack.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave
