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


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.

Business Insider:

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 …

Obama: Yes?

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.

Barack Obama Sheds a Tear During his Gun Control Speech While Trying to Tear Down the Second Amendment and the US Constitution


The liberal MSM is a flutter that Barack Obama teared up as he gave his speech on gun control in America and assaulted the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. Is it possible that these are not crocodile tears from Obama, sure it is. However, none of his power grab ideas would have prevented any of the mass murders that he is referencing. Also, so sorry if I don’t believe the actions of a man who’s sole purpose is to take guns away from law-abiding citizens. But just curious, why didn’t Obama cry or shed a tear on so many other occasions where people died at the hands of his policies, like Fast & Furious where he armed the bad guys, or in San Bernadino, CA where his lax visa checks allowed a terrorist in the country or the continues release of criminals from prison who used guns in the commission of their crimes?

I think I like the comment at Michelle the best when it comes to Obama pretending to care and trying to be truthful with the American people when it comes to guns,  “If you like your 2nd Amendment, you can keep it.”

 New York Times:

Mr. Obama will clarify that existing laws require anyone making a living by selling guns to register as a licensed gun dealer and conduct background checks. White House officials said the president would note that criminal penalties already exist for violating those laws.

“We have to be very clear that this is not going to solve every violent crime in this country,” Mr. Obama said on Monday, ahead of a formal announcement on Tuesday. “It’s not going to prevent every mass shooting; it’s not going to keep every gun out of the hands of a criminal.”

Mr. Obama will hire more personnel to process background checks in a timely manner, direct officials to conduct more gun research, improve the information in the background check system, encourage more domestic violence prosecutions and order better tracking of lost guns. He will also make it easier for states to provide mental health information to the background check system, which could bar a gun sale.

But officials said it was impossible to predict whether the new directives would have made any difference in recent shootings, such as the one in San Bernardino, Calif.

Barack Obama & MSM Wrong Again on Russia: Obama to Romney During Presidential Debate … The Cold War Is Over

So who remembers this exchange between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential debates?

FLASHBACK … During the debate Obama mocked Romney in a condescending tone, that it was just a few months ago when Romney was asked was was the United States greatest Geo-political threat, Romney said Russia. Obama then responded with the wise-ass comment, “the 1980′s are now calling and asking for their foreign policy back”. Barack Obama stated that the Cold War was over between Russia and the United States. REALLY? The situation between Putin and Obama these days is little very Cold War’ish, isn’t it? Who wants to now admit that Romney was 100% correct and Obama is just a fool looking to just make ignorant, juvenile sound bytes? C’mon LIBS, we are all waiting for the apology.

Hmm, so I wonder what Obama has to say for himself now about Russia? As Obama and Putin are in a pissing contest over Russian planes bombing targets in Syria. Russia and Putin are vehemently defending the Syrian airstrikes and denies targeting U.S. backed rebels as Obama claims just the opposite.

How could a President be so wrong and ignorant on every issue and still get elected by We the People. There are many people to blame for this but ultimately the blame lays at the hands of the America people. Maybe you will pay the hell attention in 2016 before this country is ruined for all times.

SOTU Address:Obama Asks for GOP Controlled Congress for Civility Then Goes Snarky and Shoots Back at Republicans, “I Won Both of Them” (Video)


During tonight’s State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama called for civility and for Congress to come together and work together. Obama called for better politics, one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter. Then after all this call for kumbaya politics, Obama went snarky and back to the divisive politics of me. Obama opined, “I have no more campaigns to run.” His comment was met with some GOP applause and then some laughter. Then Obama’s true colors came out as the thin skinned president made the following snark comment, “I know because I won both of them”. REALLY? Once again it’s all about Obama, its all about “I”. The second election is debatable whether you won, with all the IRS scandals against Tea Party and conservative groups, stolen might be a better description. However, I wonder when Obama said, “I won” what the many Democrat US Reps and Senators sitting at home, tossed out of office because of Obama’s policies and agenda thought?


Imagine if we broke out of these tired old patterns. Imagine if we did something different.

Understand— a better politics isn’t one where Democrats abandon their agenda or Republicans simply embrace mine.

A better politics is one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.

A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues, and values, and principles, and facts, rather than “gotcha” moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives.

A better politics is one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter, and spend more time lifting young people up, with a sense of purpose and possibility, and asking them to join in the great mission of building America.

If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments?—?but let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.

That’s a better politics. That’s how we start rebuilding trust. That’s how we move this country forward. That’s what the American people want. That’s what they deserve.


Retired ABC News Journalist Ann Compton Discussing Barack Obama: He Launches ‘Profanity-Laced’ Tirades Against Press

Imagine how Barack Obama would have acted and dealt with the press if they were not carrying the water for his administration? It is hard to believe that Obama had an adversarial role with the media when it was basically the MSM and their lack of vetting or asking any sort of investigative questions that got him elected and reelected.

Transcripts below from Newsbusters - C-SPAN, 38:05:

ANN COMPTON: Before I walked out the door on September 10, I was a strong voice for complaining that this particular administration has been more opaque than any I have covered about what the President does in the Oval Office everyday. He is far less accessible on photo-ops with meetings. Even some meetings on the record, meeting in the Roosevelt room with financial leaders from, from Wall Street or on issues with environmental groups, or with issues with environmental groups, with public opinion leaders, I think most presidents have been far more forthcoming than the second Obama term, in terms of what the President is doing every day and we almost never get photo-ops.

C-SPAN, 55:50:

LAMB: So, off of that experience, how many other presidents were that aware of what they said to you and how many just did not pay attention at all and you had no personal reaction from them?

COMPTON: I think most presidents realize – had a personal connection. I don’t think they ever — we were ever in a confrontation-type moment where they felt the need to apologize. I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals. Another where he took us to task for not understanding the limits he has with foreign policy and the way he’s dealing with the Middle East and Iraq, and Afghanistan. And I don’t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell.

LAMB: Does he have a point?

COMPTON: From his point of view, he may. But we cover what we are allowed to cover. And when policy decisions and presidents are inaccessible and don’t take questions from the press on a regular basis, I think they get — they reap what they sow.
