Barack Obama

Finally, an Islamic leader with guts


I’m liking what I hear more and more from King Abdullah of Jordan.

He is standing up to Daesh where other leaders in the region are quietly acquiescing.

President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton can’t bring themselves to publicly acknowledge that Islam and  “Muslims” are inextricably linked to terrorism. Remarkably, however, one Muslim world leader has no problem in speaking openly about the war “within Islam.”

Speaking at a press conference in Kosovo Tuesday, Jordan’s King Abdullah admonished that we are about to enter a “Third World War” if the civilized world does not “act fast to tackle” ISIS and other interconnected terrorist threats.   Read more »

Obama: “He and I have become good friends, and not just because we play golf together”


The Spinoff has video from ABC catching Malcolm Turnbull and Obama chatting about John key.

During a quiet moment at the Apec summit in Manila, microphones picked up Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull and US President Barack Obama chatting like any pair of old geezers might, about bilaterals and what have you, and Obama has the gall to say “You actually talk to the New Zealanders?”   Read more »

The Myth of the Tiny Radical Muslim Minority

After the latest Islamic terror atrocity we have seen the same mitigation strategies explained by the Media party, in the media, and by politicians who don’t seem to know their arse from their elbow. That includes Barack Obama, even our own Prime Minister and of course the mouthpiece of FIANZ Dame Susan Devoy.

They all claim in one way or another that there is only a small, perhaps tiny radical Muslim minority committing terrorism, hate crimes, and other radical acts of violence against gays, women and the West.

They are wrong and Pew Research has shown that.    Read more »

Mark Steyn nails it

and the elephant in the room that no one will talk about except a few brave individuals who will eventually be proved right.

As I write, Paris is under curfew for the first time since the German occupation, and the death toll from the multiple attacks stands at 158, the vast majority of them slaughtered during a concert at the Bataclan theatre, a delightful bit of 19th century Chinoiserie on the boulevard Voltaire. The last time I was there, if memory serves, was to see Julie Pietri. I’m so bloody sick of these savages shooting and bombing and killing and blowing up everything I like – whether it’s the town where my little girl’s favorite fondue restaurant is or my favorite hotel in Amman or the brave freespeecher who hosted me in Copenhagen …or a music hall where I liked to go to hear a little jazz and pop and get away from the cares of the world for a couple of hours. But look at the photographs from Paris: there’s nowhere to get away from it; the barbarians who yell “Allahu Akbar!” are there waiting for you …when you go to a soccer match, you go to a concert, you go for a drink on a Friday night. They’re there on the train… at the magazine office… in the Kosher supermarket… at the museum in Brussels… outside the barracks in Woolwich…

Twenty-four hours ago, I said on the radio apropos the latest campus “safe space” nonsense:

This is what we’re going to be talking about when the mullahs nuke us.

Almost. When the Allahu Akbar boys opened fire, Paris was talking about the climate-change conference due to start later this month, when the world’s leaders will fly in to “solve” a “problem” that doesn’t exist rather than to address the one that does. But don’t worry: we already have a hashtag (#PrayForParis) and doubtless there’ll be another candlelight vigil of weepy tilty-headed wankers. Because as long as we all advertise how sad and sorrowful we are, who needs to do anything?  Read more »

Obama breaks the record again as the world’s best gun sales man


Obama has to be on some sort of retainer from gun manufacturers.

How else would you his explain his constant attempts to boost their sales.

Truth Revolt reports:

October marked the sixth month in a row that gun sales have been at an all-time high.

As The Washington Free Beacon notes, last month saw nearly two million background checks performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, beating out totals from October a year ago by nearly 400,000.

So far this year, 17,584,346 background checks have been performed. Last year’s total was 20,968,547 and 2013’s was 21,093,273. With two months left to go in 2015, those two years will likely be bested.

Of course, this isn’t an exact total of guns sold, per se, but “a reliable proxy,” according to the Beacon.    Read more »

Obama breaks promise, puts troops into Syria

Barack Obama has been shamed into action on Syria by Vladimir Putin.

But in doing so he has made a liar out of himself.

Truth Revolt reports:

On September 10, 2013 President Barack Obama addressed the American people and promised, “I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria,” as he called for limited strikes to take down Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Yet on Friday the Obama administration announced they were doing just that: putting American special forces on the ground in Syria. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest insisted the deployment of less than 50 special forces troops was not a combat mission and was meant to train and assist local groups battling ISIS.

“That has been the core element of the military component of our strategy from the beginning: building the capacity of local forces on the ground,” Earnest said.   Read more »

And the TPPA just got bigger

Andrew Little was demanding the government sell beef to Hindus and that we look at a FTA with Indonesia when we already have one.

Well, his wish sort of came true. Indonesia has told the US it wants in to the TPPA as well.

Indonesia’s president says his country will join the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade deal, but cuts short his US visit to deal with Indonesia’s worsening haze situation.

Joko Widodo made the comments to US President Obama at the White House.

Indonesia, south-east Asia’s largest economy with a population of 250 million, will join 12 countries in the world’s largest free trade area.   Read more »

Hillary Clinton attempts to beat Obama as the world’s best gun salesperson

I'm coming for yer guns!

I’m coming for yer guns!

Barack Obama currently holds the title of the world’s best gun sales man. Firearms company stock is up more than 60% since he became president.

But it appears that Hillary Clinton is trying to unseat him from that position.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton today proposed tighter gun control measures, and suggested that if elected she would use executive action to bring them to fruition, reports Fox News.

“I want to push hard to get more sensible restraints,” Clinton said on NBC’s Today. “I want to work with Congress, but I will look at ways as president.”

Among the proposed measures are expanded background checks for firearms sales online and at gun shows, closing loopholes in federal laws that allow for gun-sale transactions to be completed if the buyer’s background check is not finished within three days, and a repeal of legislation shielding gun manufacturers, distributors and dealers from most liability suits.   Read more »

Refugees: a cautionary tale

The leftists want us to throw our doors open to Islamic “refugees” fleeing their own religious adherents who have got out of hand after being funded by oil rich nations.

Apparently we have to help them now even after they caused their own problems.

We should be careful and here is why.

Barbara Strack is President Obama’s chief of the Refugee Affairs Division at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service of the Department of Homeland Security. That’s a fancy title that would at least indicate some cursory knowledge about refugees. But that couldn’t have been further from the truth, as evidenced in Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest investigating Obama’s plan to open our borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees over the next two years.

One of the top concerns about any refugee coming into the United States is whether or not they have ties to terrorism or are radical Islamists. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, also the Congressional subcommittee’s chairman, knows the importance of knowing and monitoring these connections with these asylum seekers. He asked Mrs. Strack if she could confirm that Dzhokhar and Tamerian Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bombers, were in fact refugees. Her response was a bit on the shocking side:

I would need to check with my colleagues, sir.   Read more »

Scientists request that Obama uses RICO to silence climate sceptics

How dare you challenge the decree that “the science is settled”!

You may like to reconsider your ongoing denial of global warming. Twenty eminent climate scientists have written to Obama urging a new law be invoked to imprison “corporations and other organisations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change”.

I kid you not:

[A] group of scientists has written to President Obama, saying:

We appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress. One additional tool – recently proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change …    Read more »
