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.

Donald Trump Discusses Terrorism in NYC/NJ Following Weekend Bombings on Fox & Friends (9/19/2016)


Donald Trump discusses the bombings that took place over the weekend on FOX and Friends. You know, it is a breath of fresh air to actually hear some one talk tough and truthful on terrorism. The below is a must watch video.

Media Bias: CNN Purposely & Falsely Adds ‘Racial’ to Trump’s Comments on Terrorism and Immigration

CNN has become nothing more than a political Super Pac for Hillary Clinton …

As Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers sink, Democrats and the liberal MSM have become more and more concerned. So much so that CNN willfully, purposely and falsely added the word “racially” to Donald Trump’s comments as he discussed on FOX News how Israel uses profiling to deal with terrorism and immigration. As seen in the screen shot below, CNN falsely added the it and even put it in quotes as if Trump really said the words. However, upon review of the transcripts and the video, Donald Trump never said any such thing. He said, “profiling”. But this is what a desperate MSM does who is in the tank for Hillary Clinton and sees her election chances slipping away. But of course there is no media bias or double standard. Shame on the MSM for not doing their jobs and vetting all candidates.

“You know in Israel, they profile They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”


CNN added the word “racial” to Donald Trump’s Monday comments on terrorism and immigration, and is running headlines reporting that the GOP nominee is advocating “racial profiling”.

But a review of the transcript of Trump’s comments to Fox News that CNN quoted, however, shows that Trump never put the word “racial” in front of “profiling.”

“You know in Israel, they profile,” Trump said Monday to Fox News. “They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”

Forward to the 3:00 mark for the actual comments Trump made.

In a later interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump also expressed a need to profile in the manner Israel does, but again didn’t use the word “racial.” But when pressed by O’Reilly how it could be determined how a person could be deemed suspicious, Trump wouldn’t elaborate.

“It works. If we see somebody that we think could be a problem at airports and other places you talk to them and you see what’s going on. We don’t do that. Not much.”

CNN has been running headlines throughout the day that specifically quotes Trump as saying “racial profiling” and the Fox News excerpts the network sent out Monday evening also framed his quotes as responses to questions about “racial profiling.”

The Daily Caller references other examples where CNN did some selective editing to help Hillary.

Suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami in the New York City & New Jersey bombings Arrested and Taken into Custody by Law Enforcement

Law enforcement  arrest New Jersey resident Ahmad Khan Rahami, wanted for NYC and N.J. bombings, after he shoots police officer.

 A bloodied Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, was arrested at 11 a.m. in Linden, N.J., only hours after the NYPD had set off a cell phone alert to millions notifying them that he was wanted in the spree of attacks.

The showdown began on a rain-soaked street around 10:30 a.m. after three men spotted Rahami sleeping in a building vestibule and called cops.

ABC News – New York Bombing Person of Interest In Custody

UPDATE I: Bomb suspect Rahami a deadbeat, hated America, says his daughter’s mother.

The man who police nabbed and shot Monday after a day-long dragnet in connection with a series of terror attacks in and around New York was a bad father who disliked America, hated gays and took long trips to his homeland of Afghanistan, according to the mother of his young daughter.

Maria, whose full name is being withheld by, said her high school sweetheart, Ahmad Khan Rahami, didn’t pay child support and often railed against American culture. The 26-year-old, who spoke after her grandmother called her for a reporter who produced his press credential and identified himself at the grandmother’s home in Elizabeth, said she had not seen Rahami in two years.

“He would speak often of Western culture and how it was different back home,” she said. “How there weren’t homosexuals in Afghanistan.

UPDATE II: The father of Ahmad Rahami, the suspect in the New Jersey and New York bombings this weekend, said he had “no idea” what his son was up to.

I am not sure if I am believing this one.

Mohammed Rahami, the father of Ahmad Rahami, the suspect in the New Jersey and New York bombings this weekend, spoke to NBC News briefly Monday and said he had “no idea” what his son was up to.

“When you see in your family, you feel yourself, too, what’s going on,” he told NBC News’ Kerry Sanders, who approached Rahami’s car after he drove past police barricades near the scene of the capture of the suspect in Linden, New Jersey.

Asked if he believed what his son had been accused of, Rahami said, “I’m not sure what’s going on … I’m not sure what’s happening, exactly. But I think so.”
