Close to 24-hours after a deadly attack on attendees at a San Bernadino, California, holiday party the debate continues between the Obama White House and counterterrorism experts about whether or not the attack that left dozens dead and wounded was an Islamic terrorist incident or a case of workplace violence.
During a press briefing on Thursday, President Barack Obama said he turned over the San Bernardino investigation to the FBI agents who are being noticeably careful to avoid terms such as Islam, Muslim, terrorism, jihad, etc.
“At this stage we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” Obama said. “It is possible this was terrorist-related … it is possible this was workplace-related. We need to make sure when individuals decide they want to do harm we make it harder because right now it’s just too easy,” he said.
“We’re going to have to I think search ourselves as a society to make sure that we take some basic steps that make it harder — not impossible — but harder for individuals to get access to weapons,” Obama added, in an obvious nod to his strong desire to disarm American citizens..
“This nation is being run by a bunch of mentally-challenged ideologues who expect us to believe that a man, who happened to be Muslim, had an argument at work, left the building and went home to get his wife. He then built several IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and obtained firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Then he stopped off at an Army & Navy Surplus Store and purchased military/police type overalls and bullet-proof vests. At that point, the suspect and his spouse returned to his workplace and began their shooting spree,” said former homicide detective and commanding officer Pat Mulhearn. “Is that what Obama expects us to believe? Give me a break!” he added.
Mulhearn and other law enforcement officials claim that due to a number of national security failures by the Obama administration, the war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, al-Qaida, Al Shabaab has now been passed on to the American people,
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the chairman of military theory program at the Marine Corps University, appeared on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News Channel show to sound off on President Barack Obama’s refusal to change America’s anti-terrorism strategy. Gorka advised Pirro and her audience that Americans should always be on alert while out in public by reporting any suspicious activity immediately to the local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
A noted gun policy expert and advisory board member of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, John Snyder agrees about Americans protecting themselves and their homes. “The recent Paris, France bloodbath shows that decent people need guns for protection,” he said.
“So do other ISIS attacks and threats. You never know when, where or how these radical Islamic terrorists will strike. People have to be ready, willing and able to stop these murderous, throat-slashing barbarians,” said the man the New York Times dubbed the “gun dean.”
“Anti-gun President Obama and [his] would-be successor anti-gun Hillary Clinton let the cat out of the bag recently. They each indicated they favored Australian-style citizen gun confiscation policies for the United States. They want American citizens to lie helpless and supine before the Islamist threat.”
“Obama says he wants to make gun control the number one issue his administration will pursue during his last year as president. The other day, Hillary accepted the inaugural Mario M. Cuomo Visionary Award from the anti-gun Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The award is named for the late Gov. Mario Cuomo, who was a prominent anti-gun politician. His son, current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is [also] an anti-gun fanatic.”
Snyder lamented that “while there are a number of good people in the Democrat Party, [they] cannot be considered good as long as it chooses… leaders like Obama and Clinton and as long as it supports draconian gun control, abortion, same-sex marriage, massive tax increases, a weakening of our national defenses, and a diminishing of American national sovereignty.”
