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.

Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.
Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.
Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.
The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.
She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.
Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana
Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.
Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
Obama White House Ignored Request To Illuminate The Residence Blue Following Dallas Police Shooting … White House Has No Plans To Go Blue
OF COURSE THE OBAMA ADMIN HAS NO PLANS TO HAVE THE WHITE HOUSE GO BLUE …
The Obama White House jumped at the opportunity to color the White House in rainbow colors following the SCOTUS decision of gay rights, but not so much following the Dallas massacre that left 5 police officers dead and 7 others injured. According to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, he said there are no plans of illuminating the residence blue in honor and support of the slain men in blue. Doesn’t that speak volumes. And we wonder why there is a war on the police? Obama can talk all he wants that he supports the police, but when push comes to shove to make a bold move for all to see, be shows his true colors.
God forbid the President of the United States show a visual support of the Men/Women in Blue that he claimed to have so much respect in the first part of his speech at the Dallas Memorial. In the end, Obama can’t upset the Black Lives Matter crowd. Its all about pandering for votes.
During today’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said there are no plans of illuminating the residence blue in honor of the officers killed in Dallas.
The White House lowered the flags to half-staff in the wake of the horrific Dallas attack on July 7 that left five police officers dead. It’s one of the deadliest attacks on law enforcement in 100 years. During that night, Micah Xavier Johnson, angered by white people, and wanting to kill them, especially white police officers, opened fire at the conclusion of a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest. Nine other officers were also wounded in the attack. Yet, a request by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association to cover the White House in blue lighting last Friday [July 8] was reportedly ignored by the Obama administration (via PoliceMag):
This is a slap in the face to police officers across the country. They need to know that the president and the country stands with them. They need to know that we fully reject the anti-cop rhetoric sweeping the nation.
Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association and the man who requested this simple gesture of respect, issued the following heart-breaking statement about what the White House’s refusal means to law enforcement:
Barack Obama Speaks at Memorial for the 5 Slain Police Officers in Dallas, Texas and Then Has to Bring Up Racism and Gun Control
DEFINE IRONY OR IN THIS CASE OBAMA’S SICK AND BIAS IDEOLOGY … SPEAKING AT A MEMORIAL FOR 5 SLAIN POLICE OFFICERS AT THE HANDS OF A BLACK RACIST WHO STATED HE WANTED TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE AND THEN BLAMING WHITE AMERICA FOR RACISM …
Yesterday, President Obama memorialize the five slain officers in Dallas, Texas and was joined by his wife, Michelle Obama, President George W. Bush and Mrs. Bush, and Vice-President Biden and Jill Biden. I will admit the beginning of the speech struck the correct tone, it was respectful and a very heart-felt and eloquent speech. It was what a President should have said at a Memorial for 5 brave police officers. Then came the BUT and Barack Hussein Obama just couldn’t not leave it there. The Ideologue in him just had to come out. As Patterico’s Pontifications opined, And then,
disappointingly expectedly, President Obama began to push his particular brand of politics and propaganda before the captive audience. Barack Obama hijacked the Memorial Service to lecture us all about racism. Isn’t that rich, five police officers (4 white and 1 Hispanic) killed at the hands of a black racist hell-bent on killing white people and especially white police officers and we get a lecture on the black plight and white racism. What else would we expect from the Divider in Chief and the most divisive, America-hating president this country has ever seen. Sad, truly sad.
This is 100% Who the Memorial Should Have been about
When anyone, no matter how good their intentions may be, paints all police as biased, or bigoted, we undermine those officers that we depend on for our safety. And as for those who use rhetoric suggesting harm to police, even if they don’t act on it themselves, well, they not only make the jobs of police officers even more dangerous, but they do a disservice to the very cause of justice that they claim to promote.
We also know that centuries of racial discrimination, of slavery, and subjugation, and Jim Crow; they didn’t simply vanish with the law against segregation. They didn’t necessarily stop when a Dr. King speech, or when the civil rights act or voting rights act were signed. Race relations have improved dramatically in my lifetime. Those who deny it are dishonoring the struggles that helped us achieve that progress. But we know…
But America, we know that bias remains. We know it, whether you are black, or white, or Hispanic, or Asian, or native American, or of Middle Eastern descent, we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point. We’ve heard it at times in our own homes. If we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads and felt it in our own hearts. We know that. And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination’s stain. Although most of us do our best to guard against it and teach our children better, none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune, and that includes our police departments. We know this.
Check out the VIDEO below when the crowd was panned by the cameras during Obama’s lecture of the defense of “Black Lives Matter” and the numerous police officers who refused to clap.
1. Equating The Murders of The Dallas Police Officers With The Killings of Alton Sterling And Philando Castile. This is a trap into which the left has fallen consistently this week. It’s lazy thinking, and more importantly, it’s morally repugnant.
2. Suggesting That Today’s Police Departments Are Still Rife With The Legacies of Slavery And Jim Crow. The year is now 2016. Arrest statistics match up precisely with crime report statistics. There is no evidence of systemic discrimination against minorities.
3. Reeling Off Meaningless Statistics To Indict Police. Obama’s favorite game is to pretend that minorities are unfairly targeted by police, without citing higher rates of criminal activity among minorities.
4. Defending The Black Lives Matter Agenda. Dallas police officers were defending protesters – some of whom were mocking them – as a black anti-white racist shot at them. That didn’t stop Obama from backing the protesters’ agenda, without evidence.
5. Pushing Government Spending. Obama stumped for more government cash, of course – but not on cops.
6. Pushing Gun Control. Obama dropped this whopper: “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
7. Ignoring Solutions. This was the key point: Obama thinks that solutions are secondary to talking about feelings. He believes he’s the national psychiatrist. “In the end, it’s not about finding policies that work. It’s about forging consensus and fighting cynicism and finding the will to make change.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch Says: Our Most Effective Response to Terror is Compassion, Unity and Love (VIDEO)
GOOD GRIEF: FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU ISIS COMES, ALL WE NEED IS LOVE TO FIGHT TERRORISM.
Yesterday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke in Orlando, Florida and stated, our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love.” ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! Let’s understand this, the United States most effective response to terror is compassion, its unity and its love? WTF is this woman talking about? This is the liberal, political correctness agenda that is going to get us all killed. Liberalism truly is a disease. As Legal Insurrection opined, “It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.” It is exactly this type of thinking and dealing with terrorism, or the lack thereof, that is responsible for 49 individuals being slaughtered in an Orlando nightclub. How is it that the Obama administration uses more harsh words and rhetoric to describe Republicans and Conservatives than they do terrorists? Thus lies the problem. The barbarians are at the gates and according to the Obama administration, all ya need is love.
We have an administration that has their heads up their collectives asses so far due to an ideology that they are putting America and Americans at risk. I would ask, who is the JV? It would seem it is the current Obama administration. Democrats need to be thrown out of office before we are all killed by terrorists.
Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.
“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”
Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.
