Comforted by the president’s natural inclination to pretense hesitation as intellectual contemplation, precedence has — once again — routed ingenuity. Because President Obama will NOT define the enemy or admit policy mistakes, the initiative of redefining strategy in the interest of inventive tactics are set aside as counter-precedent, thus non-compliant. Therefore the president discards ingenuity and inventive for the ineffective policies of precedence. All of these presidential theatrics symbolizes a befuddled, overwhelmed, and rudderless presidency. As an example of policy priority, whiles Kerry and Obama discuss climate change, chaos dominates and ISIS plots and plans.
There is an existential Jihadist menace to the hearth of humanity — therefore a real viable threat to the homeland. Irrespective, the subjects of security and preparedness (for the Obama administration) are collateral instead of central. After several attempts by Jihadist to kill Americans, in San Bernardino, ISIS combatants attacked innocents attending a company Christmas party. Applicably, for many Americans the fear of more such attacks has triumphed reason. To calm the fearful the president expounds on the merits of gun control. In response, the fearful purchase thousands of guns…
The president and secretary of state preside in a fairyland of unicorns, rainbows, and wish-it-were-so delusion. These two Ivy League intellectuals cannot envision the “real world” other than as the predisposed liberal progressives they are.
Can the United States, can the free world contain ISIS long enough? Alternatively, will ISIS attain a chemical or nuclear weapon before the free world forcibly ends the Syrian War and eradicate the ISIS threat? Will more Americans be gunned down in their own country… when is enough, enough?
America is at risk from within and without, by enemies such as ISIS and liberal progressives with the best of intentions.
Nonetheless, issues of domestic concern are far worse than a Jihadist threat to the homeland. Abated and delegitimized by a republic adrift, liberty and personal freedoms accordingly suffer. The constitution as construed is no longer the basis of law. We truly have become a land of men instead of law.
In our world, information is voluminous and consistently inaccurate. Ideology has captured the free press and the press is subjected to ideological preferences. For our politicians assisted by a compliant media and an increasingly promiscuous culture, lying is accepted as a means to an end. Distortion and misdirection are interpreted as simply utilities of convenience.
Well, the electoral game of musical chairs is entertainingly afoot and of course there is always the positive perspective; so let us all be hopeful: after all, it is a joyous time of the year…
