US President Barack Obama gestures during a press conference following the G20 summit in Antalya on November 16, 2015. US President Barack Obama said November 16 the United States had no precise intelligence warning of the Paris bombing and shooting attacks that have been claimed by Islamic State group jihadists. The United States has agreed to speed up its sharing of military intelligence with France to try to avert such assaults, the US leader added in a news conference after a summit in Turkey.

In case you weren’t convinced our Commander-in-Chief is completely incompetent, hates the country he leads, and cares far more about his agenda than doing his duty to keep us safe, allow me to present to you a statement he made today at a press conference in Turkey.
This will make steam come out of your ears.
The president grew visibly irritated with repeated questions during his news conference about whether he should act more decisively or accomplish more faster to destroy Islamic State. He said he is aware his approach doesn’t offer the satisfaction of a “neat headline” or an immediate solution.
“What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of ‘American leadership’ or ‘America winning”’ that has “no relationship to what is actually going to work,” he said.
Obama also rejected building sentiment in the U.S. to turn back refugees from Syria out of fear that terrorists will be hidden among them.
In other words, the president has absolutely no desire whatsoever to actually do his job, eradicate ISIS, and keep our nation safe because the proper actions to do so require him to drop his liberal agenda, which isn’t something he’s willing to do.
To further illustrate that point, check out what he said about letting in Syrian refugees.
“In terms of refugees, it’s clear countries like Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, which are already bearing an extraordinary burden, cannot be expected to do so alone. At the same time, all of our countries have to ensure our security. As president, my first priority is the safety of the American people and that’s even why as we accept more refugees, including Syrians, we do so only after subjecting them to rigorous screening and security checks.
We also have to remember that many of these refugees are the victims of terrorism themselves. That’s what they’re fleeing.
Slamming the door in their faces would be a betrayal of our values. Our nations can welcome refugees who are desperately seeking safety. And ensure our own security. We can and must do both.
Finally, we’ve begun to see some modest progress on the diplomatic front, which is critical because a political solution is the only way to end the war in Syria and unite the Syrian people and the world against ISIL.”
What more do loony lefties need to see in order to believe this corrupt, career politician does not care about the people of this country?
ISIS isn’t a rival nation with a governing body that can be negotiated with. They’re radicals motivated by a sick and twisted religion who will stop at nothing to force the world to submit to Islam and adopt their way of life.
You can only communicate with these folks through force, which means aggressive military action, steps the rest of the world won’t take unless we lead the way, like we used to before the pansy wallflower sitting in the Oval Office was sworn in.
Without the solid leadership of the United States, no other nation will step up and do what’s necessary, a point this president doesn’t seem to grasp, and probably never will.
We can only hope he either wakes up or this situation manages to cool off until a better person more fit for the task of Commander-in-Chief takes office.
