Burussels: The Failure of Western Leadership!

 Lamenting the Right Wing in Europe, by Brent Bozell                
The smoke hasn't even cleared from the airport in Brussels, and already the press is issuing its typical lament: This will only stoke Europe's right wing and spread rampant Islamophobia.   NBC's Richard Engel complained on the "TODAY" program, "We're already seeing the rise of the right wing. We're already seeing rise of hate attacks, where people will use the kind of terrorist attacks, these kinds of incidents, to vilify all of the Muslim community. Which, of course, only makes the situation worse, because then people feel isolated, ostracized, ghettoized, and they retreat into their own communities." NBC's Andrea Mitchell, cited gains for right-wing parties in recent German regional elections.  But what would be unreasonable about Europeans responding to Islamic jihad movements by restraining the immigration of large groups of Muslim refugees? Why isn't (sic) it considered irrational to carefully decide who's allowed to enter your country? Why can't people imagine that restricting immigration might prevent terrorists from getting in?  Earlier in the show, NBC correspondent Tom Costello (who has family members in Belgium) spoke for those who are seen as right-wing people who vilify Muslims. It was a welcome departure from the norm.......

Post-Jihad Gesture Theater: Je Suis Sick of It, by Michelle Malkin
While homicidal, suicidal, and genocidal jihadists are busy plotting the next soft-target terror attacks on the West, docile Westerners are busy shedding cartoon tears and doodling broken hearts on social media. European artists rushed to fill Twitter and Instagram with images of Tintin (the famous Belgian comic-book character) weeping after vengeful Muslim terrorists left the Brussels airport and subway system buried in rubble and dead bodies.....
 
In 2014, Barack Obama decided to respond to jihadist shock and awe with the military and propaganda equivalent of stop and bore. Let’s briefly recall those terrifying days. ISIS burst out of its Syrian stronghold, routed entire divisions of the corrupt and incompetent Iraqi Army, took Mosul, and threatened the Kurdish homeland. Yazidis faced extinction. Iraqi Christians faced genocide. The Kurds — lacking heavy weapons — faced defeat.....
 
Obama Views Terrorism as ‘the Background Noise of Our Time’, Charles Krauthammer

Thoughts on the Brussels attack,, by Newt Gingrich                                      
Obama, Western nations ignore reality.  Hours after the horrific terror attacks in Brussels on Tuesday, a correspondent on one of the American cable networks remarked that ordinary Belgians were predicting grimly that security would be very tight that day—and that the next day, it would return to the same casual mediocrity that had failed to stop the attack in the first place. The Belgians were speaking from experience—from an awful familiarity with how their security services respond to the terror threats that are so frequent in European cities......

Obama relaxes at baseball game in Cuba while Brussels burns, By Rick Moran
As they say in the biz, the optics of President Obama enjoying an exhibition game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team while a terrorist attack unfolded in Belgium were awful. But even the horrific strike against Brussels would not deter the president from having a good time. He was just too busy making history to take time to acknowledge the fact that western civilization is under assault. The sports network ESPN interviewed the president during the game and he was asked directly whether going to a ballgame in the aftermath of the Brussels attack was proper.....the president doing the wave with Raul Castro while authorities were picking up body parts at the Brussels airport only added to the notion that the president is not serious about combatting terrorism.....

My Take - And why is this any different than anything he's done in his whole life.  Barry Soetoro has never had to be accountable for his life or his actions.  He's never had a job, he clearly didn't do well in school, he's clearly selfish, egocentric, arrogant and quite frankly - stupid!  So why is anyone surprised about his ignoring terrorists attacking a western ally?  After all - he would't want to offend his commie buddys by attacking terrorists who have much in common with him and his commie buddies - their shared hatred of America.  Obama's trip to Cuba is historic, but not in the way it's being presented in the media.  In realtiy - it's a circus and he's the clown in charge.  Obama is a disgrace!  And Americans elected this man - a man who has done everything he can to destroy this nation - twice.  Imagine that!   

The "Apology Tour" Comes Full Circle , by Cal Thomas 
At the beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama traveled to Cairo, Europe and the United Nations to "apologize" for past American actions and attitudes, which he claimed helped create divisions between countries. At a town hall meeting before a mix of French and German citizens in Strasbourg, France on April 3, 2009, the president said the United States was partially to blame for increased tensions with Europe following the Iraq war: "there have been times where America (has) shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. Mitt Romney and other critics quickly dubbed these and similar remarks his "apology tour."...

Obama Calls Cruz's Muslim Surveillance Proposal 'Un-American', By Cortney O'Brien
Speaking in Buenos Aires during his trip to Argentina Wednesday, President Obama indicated that he and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri are committed to defeating ISIS in the wake of the Brussels terror attack. “The world has to be united against terrorism,” Obama said.  The two leaders announced they are working together to choke off terror finances. President Macri, Obama proudly announced, is also contributing to peacekeeping missions and is helping to address the Syrian refugee process. Our president then talked about the need to combat climate change and protect the planet for their children and grandchildren.....

My Take - What would this clown know about what's American. He was raised by American hating communists in foreign lands dominated by American hating Muslims.  He attended a racist American hating church ran by an insane American hating black nationalist.  He has never been an American and is not now.  And - once again - Americans elected him twice.  Imagine that!

Obama Calls Cruz's Muslim Surveillance Proposal 'Un-American' Hashtag: We Are Neville Chamberlain, by Ann Coulter
Immigration is the new "No Nukes/Save the Whales" movement, only with more body bags. 
After the mass murder committed by Muslims in San Bernardino, which came on the heels of the mass murder committed by Muslims in Paris, Donald Trump proposed a moratorium on Muslim immigration.  Explaining the idea on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," he talked about how Muslim immigration was infecting Europe: "Look at what happened in Paris, the horrible carnage. ... We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives. We have to be very smart and very vigilant.

Trump's reference to London's no-go zones was met with a massive round of sneering, which is what passes for argument in America these days. Jeb! said Trump was "unhinged," Sen. John McCain called him "foolish," and former vice president Dick Cheney said Trump's remarks went "against everything we stand for and believe in." (Based on Trump's crushing primary victories, Cheney is no longer qualified to say what "we" believe in.)....

Turkey Claims They Warned Belgium Not to Release Brussels Terrorist, by Cortney O'Brien
Ibrahim El Bakraoui was one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up and killed dozens in Brussels Tuesday morning. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claims this tragedy could have been avoided had Belgium listened to his warning.  El Bakraoui, along with his brother, Khalid, had criminal pasts but were not connected to terrorism before carrying out Tuesday's carnage. Yet, Erdogan insists he told Belgium authorities that El Bakraoui was a dangerous militant. Belgium apparently did not listen.....
