"Fearless" and Fear--Part II --- Domestic

July 21, 2015

President Obama's recent characterization of himself as "fearless" at this stage of his term in office should be taken as a dire warning to the American people and world Jewry. His definition of fearless really means that he will be relentless in pursuing his radical liberal, pro-Muslim ideology to fundamentally transform the United States and the world. In Part I of this article, I focused on his international agenda. In this Part II, I will focus on matters closer to home. In both cases, he is moving very quickly and successfully, and his characterization of himself as fearless is one of the few things that he says that should be taken at face value. In short, all Americans and all Jews need to wake up now.

A good segue from Part I to this Part II is to stay on the topic of radical Islamic terrorism. Only whereas Part I focused on radical Islamic terrorism around the globe, Part II will focus on its rapid rise and escalating threat in the United States. This past week, we witnessed the latest radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States, which claimed the lives of four marines and one sailor in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The carnage could have been a lot worse than it was. Yet, just as Obama refuses to name terrorism committed by radical Islamists internationally for what it is, so too does he refuse to do so in our own country. A "lone gunman" was the best that Obama could muster when describing the most recent terrorist attack committed by a radical Muslim in America. And just as he is not addressing radical Islamic terrorism overseas, he is deliberately not combating the problem at home either.

Compare Obama's reaction to the massacre in Chattanooga to the recent horrific murder of nine black Americans by one lone, white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina. In that terrible event, Obama had no problem placing black and white labels on the victims and the cold-blooded murderer, respectively. To further distinguish his reaction to the two incidents, Obama took an isolated case of a true lone, crazy gunman and portrayed it as just one of countless examples of white racism, hatred and violence against blacks in this country, equating America's past with its present. Obama is clearly using this white on black travesty to sow the seeds of division and discord in America, ginning up controversy by building off of America's past while ignoring the obvious positive strides it has made in the last few decades. He has shamefully done the same thing before--Ferguson, Baltimore, Trayvon Martin, and others--and will do so again if and when the opportunity arises. At the same time, he promotes his pro-Muslim ideology and shields radical Islamic terrorists by deliberately ignoring a rising trend in this country and characterizing the latest of many radical Islamic terrorist attacks or thwarted attacks as just another incident involving a lone gunman.

Even more disturbing is Obama's demeanor and attitude when addressing these topics. His outrage and emotion were palpable when discussing the Charleston massacre. He has done this consistently in cases where a black person has been the subject of a violent act committed by a white person, even if it proved to be justified and involved law enforcement. The actual facts and circumstances have not mattered. How many times have we seen him do this even, as he admits and in his own words, before all of the facts are known? Yet in the case of the Chattanooga massacre (as he typically does when he prefers not to comment), he was quick to caution that he could not say too much as not all of the facts were known, but did say that it appeared to be committed by a lone gunman. Now that we know the facts, and the crime was committed by a radical Muslim, has he said anything else? No. Will he? No. Did he express any outrage or emotion as Commander and Chief over the violent, cold-blooded murders of our innocent military men? Again no. Instead, he disrespects and dishonors the victims, their families and all Americans by refusing to lower flags on federal buildings to half-staff. Americans ask why is he not ordering the lowering of the flag to half-staff? Why doesn't he show any emotion or passion over the Chattanooga massacre? They wonder why he doesn't really say anything at all about it. Why doesn't he come out and say the words "radical Islamic terrorism"? I could go on and on. Why, why, why? The answers are obvious for anyone who really wants them.

It is very simple to show how Obama is trying to manipulate facts to divide America and protect Muslims. When you hear of terrorist acts or killings around the globe, which are occurring all too frequently, what is the first thing you think of? For most people, the honest and common sense answer is radical Islamic terrorism. Now ask the same question regarding the increasing trend in America. When you hear of a terrorist act or threat, who instinctually do you think of as the perpetrators? The answer should be the same. Now let's assume there are only two choices given as the possible perpetrators, whites and Muslims. Even if the victims were all or predominantly black, who would you instinctually select as the perpetrators? I suspect most people would pick Muslims. Despite claims by Obama and far-left groups that this would somehow make you a racist and support their propagandist claims of Islamophobia, the truth is the truth and common sense is common sense. How and when did it become acceptable to have such fears be instinctual in this country?

This though is part of Obama's larger plan of dividing and weakening America. Look at his condemnation of our law enforcement personnel. Again, he has used isolated events to try to falsely portray a larger pattern. In doing so, he has supported the anarchy that he has helped cause in the wake of incidents in Ferguson and Baltimore. He has weakened law enforcement and the results are obvious as violent crime has spiked in many minority cities across the country. Ironically, this has resulted in far more black deaths, from black on black violence, than a few isolated and questionable incidents involving law enforcement, justified or unjustified, against blacks.

At a time when radical Islamic terrorism is running rampant across the globe, Obama continues to severely cut America's military. This has had many senior military officials on edge for some time with many (mainly retired) officials issuing stern warnings. With the threat of radical Islamic terrorism escalating in America, Obama is fixated on preventing innocent Americans and America's military personnel from arming themselves. With the radical Islamic terrorists issuing direct threats to our military personnel in this country, Obama needs to immediately take action to help arm them. Pulling down blinds on windows and not wearing their uniforms in military facilities in our own country is a cowardly, shameful and frightening response from our government.

Common decency would have dictated that Obama reach out to the family of the victim very recently killed in a senseless murder in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had been deported numerous times. Obama instead chose this past week to grant clemency to 46 convicted felons and separately tour a federal penitentiary in Oklahoma vowing to change America's criminal justice system. Not a word of sympathy to the family of the victim in San Francisco from Obama or his Administration. To make matters worse, Obama's inept spokesman, Josh Earnest, had nothing to say except to refer any questions to the Department of Homeland Security and blame Republicans. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, did not even recognize the victim's name when asked about it in a Congressional hearing. When the matter was clearly described to him, he had no comment. He seemed clueless, but it is hard to be clueless when part of a master plan, unless he is just a stooge or puppet in the plan. And only members of this Administration could be such blatant liars as to try to pin this murder on Republicans. As if sanctuary cities, Obama's refusal to enforce federal laws and securing the border, and his preventing states from taking their own protective measures against illegal immigration are causes championed by Republicans. That this took place in San Francisco with its local far-left Democratic politicians tells you all you need to know.

Under Obama's view of the country, the victims are not the Americans killed or injured by illegal immigrants, gang members, drug lords or just average criminals. To him, the real victims are all illegal immigrants and the criminals themselves who are incarcerated. For Obama, this is part of the biggest problems facing America today, along with the continuation of its racist history, and he will fearlessly pursue remedying these "problems". Obama's evil twisting of who are victims and who are criminals is exactly why he has to be stopped on his efforts on gun control.

Obama's fearlessness has made him very predictable. A reasonable American would expect his or her president to be taking aim at the growing problems of cybersecurity attacks, computer hacking, identity theft, medicare and medicaid fraud, and the various other forms of fraud plaguing and robbing America and Americans. But we have not gotten nor will we get that from Obama. Where is his outrage over the recent cybersecurity attack that resulted in the identity theft of as many as 30 million past and present government workers? Of course, this number was originally reported to be much lower and has only been increased in stages. The IRS also is getting pulverized by identity theft crimes. Millions of Americans are the victims of identity theft and credit card fraud. Many different types of fraud, committed by real criminals, cost this country billions of dollars each year. But not a word from Obama. Instead, he gives the criminals a pass and criminalizes Americans that he considers to be wealthy and successful. Here too he has been effective in dividing the country; in this instance, along economic and financial backgrounds. As part of this plan, Obama has chosen to go to war against American capitalism and society. He has targeted America's financial/banking, energy and healthcare sectors and now is probing the airline industry.

Given Obama's divisiveness, consider the ramifications of an attack on America's power grid. This would shut down our banking, telecommunications and transportation, among other basic survival systems, and crush our overall infrastructure. How will Americans react? No doubt, Obama's polarization will make for dangerous conditions. There will be people who will feel emboldened and entitled to act lawlessly. Will law enforcement be supported or second guessed? Will honest, law-abiding citizens have guns to protect themselves or will just the criminals? Is Obama combatting domestic radical Islamic terrorism to try to prevent this?

Just how vulnerable is the United States? Look at the recent systems' problems suffered on the same day by the New York Stock Exchange, the Wall Street Journal and United Airlines. Was your first thought that this was a coordinated cyber attack? Something as small as this had quite an unsettling feeling and impact. Imagine multiplying that exponentially. How and when did it become acceptable to have such fears be instinctual in this country?

I would like to tie this all together for world Jewry. Obama's pro-Muslim and pro-Palestinian policies have fostered global Anti-Semitism and I am afraid that it will only escalate while he is in office. His nuclear deal with Iran has the potential, G-d forbid, to spark the next holocaust. Yet there is more. I expect Obama will next proceed to ramp up the pressure on Israel by trying to force it into a sham "peace" deal with the Palestinians. Already, the seeds have been planted and France's proposed U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders has likely only been delayed until the nuclear deal with Iran is fully secured. But my guess is that it is coming. And it is very frightening.

To conclude, Obama is fearless because he will strive to forcefully blend his radical liberal, pro-Muslim ideology from an international perspective with his domestic agenda to fundamentally transform the United States and the world. Look at his actions and omissions and listen to his own words. Consider his pen and phone comments (or threats) and you will see that he is making good on them. Fearless means he is becoming more and more blatant and forceful in his words and actions. Why doesn't he comment on the violent deaths of real victims? Why doesn't he order the flag lowered to half-staff? Why, as reported, will he address the issue of predatory lending later today as a major problem in this country? Why does he view global climate change as the biggest threat to the world today when radical Islamists are terrorizing and killing people worldwide and are making their presence painfully felt in America? Is global climate change really a bigger immediate threat than Iran being on a clear path to develop and obtain nuclear weapons over time while it expands its reach and terror around the world, particularly in the Middle East and Latin America? We should expect the onslaught to continue.

Do I have Obama's description of his own fearlessness correct? Do I describe the resulting fear accurately? The reader should make his or her own decision. But they should do so with an open mind and with open eyes and ears. What does the reader suppose Obama meant when he characterized himself as fearless?

I will leave the reader with this to ponder as part of the overall analysis. Obama excoriated Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in March toward the end of the election process because Mr. Netanyahu encouraged his constituents of conservative Israeli Jews to get out and vote because foreign organizations were busing Israeli arabs to the polls and doing everything they could to get them to vote and defeat Mr. Netanyahu. Leftist foreign and Israeli organizations all were encouraging liberal voters to vote against Mr. Netanyahu and his policies. Obama, who is exceptional at using all of these methods, was somehow outraged at Mr. Netanyahu and Israel. Choosing to ignore the fact that Israel is a great friend, ally and fellow democracy, Obama immediately announced that he would reassess American policy toward Israel because of Mr. Netanyahu's words. (Consider France's resolution above and whether or not Obama would veto it.) By contrast, in the immediate aftermath of the announcement of the nuclear deal with Iran last week, Iran's supreme leader continued his chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" and declared that nothing would change between his country and America and once again threatened Israel. This Obama dismissed as nothing more than a politician appealing to his constituents. Let the reader decide.
