March, 2016, Part 2, Politicians SayThe Darndest Things: Hilllary Evoking John Dillinger, Denying Radical Islam and More

Ever so often we run a series of posts under the theme, “Politicians say the darndest things.” It is a parody of an old television show, “House Party,” where host Art Linkletter would ask simple questions of young kids and wait for their often funny responses. This segment of his show was called “Kids Say The Darndest Things.”

Unfortunately when kids say silly or dumb things, it is funny. When politicians say silly or dumb things, there are usually serious ramifications across the land that often involve stupid laws, wasteful spending, self delusion of a politician’s intelligence or abilities, or a continued lack of faith that today’s politicians are smart enough to get anything right.

1) President Obama on terrorists: "We defeat them in part by saying 'you are not strong.'” This was the President’s reaction to many people, both political allies and opponents, when he decided to go out and enjoy a meaningless baseball game in Cuba rather than showing any shred or leadership and taking charge of the U.S. response and reaction to the brutal and fatal ISIS terror bombings in Brussels.

Instead of putting together a real plan to defeat ISIS, the most fearsome, violent and richest terror group to ever exist, and executing this plan, the President has decided to defeat them with verbal sparring. His strategy consist of calling them names, “you are not strong.” 

Seriously, does anyone besides Obama think that ISIS is going to back off because of his opinion and name calling in the absence of a real plan to defeat them? Pathetic leadership and total lack of strategic thinking and planning.

2) Bernie Sanders, Democratic candidate for President, recently tried to convince the world that there are no poor white people in this country when he said: “When you are white, you do not know what it is like to be poor.” As we discussed yesterday, do these politicians really believe the bs they say or do they think we are too stupid to checkout and verify them when they make these global and outrageously wrong statements? 

Because this is a tremendously wrong statement if you look at the numbers and the reality:
  • The five poorest counties in the country are all at least 95% white, according to the 2010 Census.
  • The nation’s poorest county, Owsley in Kentucky, is 98% white.
  • Owsley is only .5% black.
  • The second poorest county, Lee county, also in Kentucky, is 95% white and only 2% black.
  • Clay county in Kentucky was called the “hardest place to live” in the country by a New York Times article and Clay is 94% white.
Again, are these politicians delusional or pathological liars and deceivers? Never, ever believe what they tell you because they say the darndest things and usually these darndest things are pure fiction.

3) While Obama’s reaction to the latest ISIS attacks were meant with nothing stronger than name calling, as always, the reaction of Secretary of State John Kerry’s reaction to the terror attacks was even more inane: “Today’s abhorrent attacks in Brussels are an assault against the Belgian people and the very heart of Europe. Our thoughts are with all those in Brussels, including the injured and the loved ones of those who were killed, and with the first responders and security personnel who are working tirelessly to keep Brussels safe.

The U.S. Embassy in Brussels is making every effort to account for the welfare of American citizens in the city, and in the days ahead we stand ready to provide whatever support the Belgian Government may require. As I made clear this morning in a conversation with Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, the United States stands firmly with our ally Belgium and with all of Europe in the face of this tragedy. Attacks like these only deepen our shared resolve to defeat terrorism around the world.”

What is critical here is not what Kerry said but what he did not say:
  • He never recognizes the attacks as being planned by ISIS even though ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks and almost immediately confirmed that the same ISIS terror cell that executed the Paris terrorist attacks also did the Brussels attacks.
  • He never mentions that Islamic radicals planned and executed the attacks that killed dozens and wounded over a hundred innocents.
  • He never mentions that these were blatant “terrorist” attacks, he calls them “abhorrent” attacks.
Thus, it is more important to identify what he did NOT say than what he did say. What he did say used mostly sterile boilerplate sentences that could have been lifted from every other State Department reaction to other attacks and tragedies. What it did not say is that this administration again refuses to acknowledge that Islamic radicalism is the real terror threat. 

Failure to face the reality of a problem or issue in any situation usually means that you are incapable of finding a solution to that problem or issue. Such is the case with the Obama administration’s statements and attitudes: failure to believe or identify that radical Islam as the leading cause of terrorism in the world prevent the Obama administration from having any chance of resolving the problem of worldwide terrorism. Just listen to their quotes.

4) One last quote for today and this month. John Dillinger, the famous bank robber from the 1930s,was once asked why he robbed banks. He reportedly answered this question with, “Simple, that is where the money is.” The latest rendition of the same attitude of bank robbers comes from a recent Hillary Clinton quote when she was asked why she accepted $675,000 for three speeches she gave to Goldman Sachs banker audiences: “I don’t know. That’s what they offered.” When you have the same attitude as John Dillinger maybe you should not be President. Especially when you claim that you will be tough on the banking industry but you accept tons of money that they constantly throw at your feet.

Being hypocritical when it comes to getting rich, denying that radical Islam exists, denying that white people can be poor, and trying to defeat terrorism with mean words than real strategies, their quotes prove it all. Delusional or pathological liars? Whatever the cause, these are the same people that control great parts of our lives and their quotes prove that they are so out of touch with reality that we all should be scared, very scared.
