Just Say It Like It Is

Twenty years ago, a confessed terrorist held an event in his Chicago home to introduce a bright new politician who was running for the Senate. 8 years ago, I suggested that electing a man to the Presidency who was friends with terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn and an America hating preacher like Jeremiah Wright was a dangerous idea.

Since then, terrorism has blossomed around the world in places like Iraq, Syria, Libya and yes, in Paris and San Bernardino. 24 hours ago, that man sat in the Oval office and tried to suggest that two Islamic terrorists who attacked dozens of Americans with bombs and semi automatic rifles might have had a grudge related to work.

This morning, we wake to reports that in less than 72 hours we’ve learned the San Bernardino Jihadi’s built bombs identical to that in an Al Qaeda terrorism magazine; That they were in contact with suspected terrorists already under FBI surveillance.

The man in the oval office suggested that new gun laws might have saved lives…even though the shooting that killed 14 and wounded 21 happened in one of the states with the toughest gun laws in America. He will call it “workplace violence”, or a “minor setback” or “a bump in the road” but he won’t call it what we all know it is: Islamic Terrorism…By Americans, against Americans, on American soil.
