Barack Obama Has Tense Exchange With CNN’s Jake Tapper Over why he won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ After Asked By Gold Star Mom
HOW COULD AMERICA EVER ELECT A PRESIDENT TWICE THAT WAS SO WRONG ON TERRORISM …
Watch the video below and listen to Barack Obama’s twisted logic in answering the question as to why he does not use the term, ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ It sounds more like he cares about not offending Muslims than he does identifying who our enemy is. By some how not saying radical Islamic terrorists that means that not all Muslimes are terrorists. Really? Actually, by stating our enemy is radical Islamic terrorists differentiates radical Islam from the rest of Islam. Then at the 5:50 mark of the video, Jake Tapper confronts Obama and it gets testy. The laugh line has to be when Obama says, I don’t want to interject partisan politics in this.” Are you kidding, that’s all Obama has done since he took office is to play partisan politics and divide this country.
The only thing Obama has unified anyone about was the bi-partisan over-ride of his veto on the 9-11 lawsuit bill.
President Barack Obama sparred with CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday night in a tense exchange over Obama’s refusal to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”
During a CNN town-hall event focusing on the US military, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked Obama why he wouldn’t use the term.
“The truth of the matter is that this is an issue that has been sort of manufactured, because there is no doubt, and I’ve said repeatedly that where we see terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or ISIL, they have perverted and distorted and tried to claim the mantle of Islam for an excuse, for basically barbarism and death,” Obama said.
“These are people who kill children, kill Muslims, take sex slaves — there’s no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do,” he added.
Obama later seemed to allude to Trump as he continued to answer Houchins’ question.
“I’ll just be honest with you: The dangers where we get loose in this language, particularly when a president or people aspiring to become president get loose with this language, you can see in some of the language that we use, in talking about Muslim-Americans here and the notion that somehow we’d start having religious tests in who can come in the country and who’s investigated and whether the Bill of Rights applies to them in the same way,” Obama said.
Trump has often said while campaigning that the US should administer some sort of test to immigrants to determine whether they have terrorist sympathies.
Tapper interjected to point out the allusion to Trump, and the exchange between him and Obama grew tense.
Here’s how it played out:
Tapper: Just to interject …
Tapper: You were clearly talking about the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, just then. You think his …
Obama: No, I wasn’t. But …
Tapper: You weren’t?
Obama: No, I …
Tapper: Well, you just said …
Obama: I would just say this, Jake, because …
Tapper: … aspiring to this office …
Obama: No, but it’s not unique to the Republican nominee. And again, I’m trying to be careful. We’re on a military base. I don’t want to insert partisan politics into this. I think that there have been a number of public figures where you start hearing commentary that is dangerous because what it starts doing is it starts dividing us up as Americans.

11 year old Emily Dowdle has been missing since Tuesday, September 27, 2016 in Catawba County, North Carolina after getting off her school bus. Emily has not been seen since she got off the school bus in front of her house around 2:15 p.m. When her parents came home, she was gone
Search crews are continuing to look for a missing 11-year-old girl in Catawba County, North Carolina.
Emily Dowdle, who attends Catawba Elementary School, has been missing since she got home from school Tuesday afternoon.
Police say Dowdle got off the school bus in front of her house around 2:15 p.m. But when her parents came home, she was gone.
Search crews are using flashlights and bloodhounds to canvass the area.
Dowdle is described as being 4’11” with long light brown hair, hazel eyes, and wears dark-framed glasses. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and capri jeans.
If you have seen Emily or know any information, you are asked to call the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office at 828-464-3112.
The missing 11-year-old Catawba County girl has been found safe. She walked out of the woods behind her home Wednesday night, officials said.
A spokesperson for the FBI said shortly before 10 p.m. that Emily Dowdle was “located within the last half hour in a wooded area near her home.”
“She is safe, will be checked out by medics,” the spokesperson said. “Our thanks go out to hundreds of law enforcement, fire fighters, and other first responders.”
Additional details will be released most likely Thursday morning, the spokesperson added.
BILL CLINTON MAY HAVE BEEN THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, HILLARY IS NOT …
As reported at The Politico, the Clinton campaign is in full “panic mode” with black voters, especially in Florida. In order for Clinton to win, she not only has to gain a high percentage of black votes, they also have to turn out in large numbers. Note to Hillary and the Democrat party, that ain’t happening. Not only is enthusiasm down among Democrat voters, there is no way, let me reiterate this, NO WAY that Hillary Clinton will get the black voter turn out that Barack Obama did in 2008 and 2012. For obvious reasons, Trump will never see those types of turn out, even if Michelle and Barack Obama beg blacks to vote for her. Blacks came out in droves to vote for the first black president. Last time I checked, Hillary was not black, even if Bill was.
At some point, black voters need to put their eggs in another basket and maybe they will see results. Because they have not received anything from voting for the Democrat party.
To kill Donald Trump’s chances of capturing the White House, Hillary Clinton needs to win Florida. And to do that, she needs a big minority turnout.
But Democrats are beginning to worry that too many African-American voters are uninspired by Clinton’s candidacy, leading her campaign to hit the panic button this week and launch an all-out blitz to juice-up voter enthusiasm.
Bill Clinton, once nicknamed the “first black president,” embarks on a North Florida bus tour Friday in an attempt to draw African-American crowds. At the same time, Clinton herself will hosts events in Broward and St. Lucie counties, which have black populations higher than the statewide average.
That follows the events of this past weekend, when black mothers who have lost children to gun violence hosted a Clinton organizing event in Jacksonville and a voter-registration drive in Opa-Locka, a majority black city near Miami. The group, Mothers of the Movement, includes Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, whose 2012 shooting death near Orlando became a flashpoint for racial division and gun violence.
Coming soon: President Barack Obama, who’s expected to campaign here at least twice before Election Day. First Lady Michelle Obama — more popular than her husband — will likely visit Florida as well, in addition to the ad she cut for Clinton that’s currently airing on Florida radio.
“Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in panic mode. Full panic mode,” said Leslie Wimes, a South Florida-based president of the Democratic African-American Women Caucus.
“They have a big problem because they thought Obama and Michelle saying, ‘Hey, go vote for Hillary’ would do it. But it’s not enough,” Wimes said, explaining that too much of the black vote in Florida is anti-Trump, rather than pro-Clinton. “In the end, we don’t vote against somebody. We vote for somebody.”
Following First Presidential Debate, Clinton Falters Among some Focus Group Voters in Swing State of North Carolina
DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING, OR PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING FROM THE BIAS MSM WHEN IT COMES TO POLITICS AND HILLARY CLINTON …
So the MSM says that Hillary Clinton won the first debate. REALLY? Not according to McClatchy and The Charlotte Observer, who conducted a focus group of 21 individuals. Before the debate, the tally was 9 for Clinton, 3 for Trump, 6 undecided and 3 for Libertarian party candidate Johnson. Following the debate that the MSM can’t keep telling you about that Hillary won, a funny thing happened …the tally became 7 for Clinton, 3 for Trump, 6 undecided and 5 for Johnson. Thus, Clinton lost support, Trump broke even and a candidate that didn’t even take part in it gained support. Yeah, that sounds like a Clinton victory, doesn’t it? The fact of the matter is just because Hillary Clinton sounded rehearsed, some might so over-rehearsed, just because she appeared more prepared and over-smiled during the debate, doesn’t make one a victor. Donald Trump, not a career politician, did not have to win the debate, to win the debate. Trump had to come off as plausible. He did. Obviously, the pundits and MSM, who have consistently got all of the political happenings wrong for the past year are once again falling back into the same trap. This is an outlier election where the norms do not apply and the people do not want a rehearsed, same old, same old career politician with the same stale answers to issues that have not worked for 30 years.
Kae Roberts and Jay Eardly were leaning toward Hillary Clinton before Monday night’s debate.
By the end, they had both pulled away.
John Kokos and Hank Federal were undecided going in, potential Clinton backers.
By the end, they’d ruled her out.
Indeed, while polls found that Clinton had won the first general-election debate with Donald Trump on Monday, she may not have won actual votes. And she may even have lost some, at least in the battleground state of North Carolina.
In a focus group of 21 voters from around Charlotte conducted by McClatchy and The Charlotte Observer, four who had been up for grabs before the debate had moved away from her by the end.
For the four who emerged less impressed by Clinton, it was the seeming familiarity of her proposals for the economy and national security that was a turnoff.
Roberts, who is unaffiliated with a party, wrote in her notes several times during the debate that Clinton offered “pie in the sky” ideas. By debate’s end, she had moved from leaning toward Clinton to undecided.
“The things she says she’s going to do, there’s no substance behind it,” Roberts said.
One potential winner in the focus group was Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, who benefited largely because so many voters were annoyed at both Trump and Clinton.
Look for Donald Trump to take the gloves off in debate II and nail Clinton for her lies, lack of ethics, putting America at risk with her private email server when she was Secretary of State and how she seemed to have no problem how her husband has treated women over the years.
