Feckless President Obama, in the aftermath of the Paris massacre, said that the best rebuke to radical Islamic terrorism was to hold climate change talks in Paris.
Well, that really showed them didn't it dumbass?!
Nearly two weeks to the day after a former CIA double agent spoke on television saying he expected a similar attack here in the US, we get the tragedy in San Bernadino. Now in the wake of this act of terrorism, we get another politically motivated maneuver by the President.
Reports are out that this administration is hurriedly working on an executive order to enact gun control legislation, specifically targeting the specious gun show loophole.
Never pass up an opportunity to turn a tragedy to a political advantage. Isn't that one of those Alinsky maxims?
Anyway, the gun show loophole, if you're not familiar with it, is the same loophole that allows you to sell your grandfather's 200 year old musket to your neighbor the vintage civil war enthusiast. It allows private sales of firearms to go unreported among private citizens. Lefty alarmists would like you to believe that private citizens are selling fully automatic weapons and rocket launchers and all manner of scary weapons by the thousands at gun shows, exploiting this grand canyon wide loophole in the law that requires background checks and waiting periods for firearm purchases.
Oddly, there's no waiting period if you want to murder your unborn child, but I digress . . .
This is another of the President's famous straw man arguments. There is no evidence of any act of domestic terrorism or mass shooting where the shooter obtained their weapons via this method. In fact, time and again, we find that mentally unstable killers have either stolen the weapons they used, purchased them illegally, or found someone else to obtain their arms for them. In the San Bernadino case, it was reported last night that someone else had purchased the weapons and ammo used by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik (who not only came into this country with a false address on her visa, her name is false as well, so kudos on that vetting process Mr. President) in their act of terror.
After eviscerating our Constitution for the last seven years, President Obama has said publicly that his biggest regret is not enacting sweeping gun control legislation. This tragedy gives him his first shot, pardon the pun, at achieving this goal. The Republican controlled House and Senate better get their testicular fortitude in order or a lot of seats are going to change in the next election.
And a word about that climate change summit --
Setting aside the fact that there is not a scintilla of evidence that anything man is doing is causing any change in the climate . . . setting aside the fact that there has been no global warming for nearly 19 years . . . that we are a period of historic lows for any and all extreme weather events . . . that there is no scientific evidence that CO2 has any re-radiative properties and as such is not an effective greenhouse gas . . . President Obama and others met in Paris to set absurd CO2 levels and promise nearly a $100 billion in aid to poor countries to aid them because . . . I've got no f*cking idea! What handing billions of taxpayer dollars to India has to do with climate change baffles me!
Supposedly there is some goal of holding global temp increases to 2°C over some time period in the future. Problem there is that the last supposed increase in global temps was only .02°C!!! Which is less than the margin for error in the measuring process! So what are we worried about again? Oh yeah, white affluent American guilt! Silly me.
And remember Obama's campaign promise to bankrupt the American coal industry and shut down US coal-fired power plants? Essentially quadrupling your power bill down the road? Yeah, he's been pretty effective on that. Problem is, the rest of the world isn't on board with that idea. There are currently 2400 coal-fired plants under construction around the world right now, even Japan is building some in the wake of the Fukushima disaster. It is estimated that these plants will dump approximately 6.5 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
So we bankrupt our coal industry, put thousands of Americans out of work. Jack up our own power bills so that low income and poor American families can't afford to heat or cool their homes. Send billions of our tax dollars to other countries in the world. And that is supposed to save the planet from something that doesn't even exist?
Hey Barack -- here's an idea: kill these f*cking terrorists, secure our borders, double down on immigration reform and control and try serving this country for once!
