Obama and Those Hysterical Media Types

We’re at war. How many ways does this have to be restated? How many planned and horrifically executed suicidal attacks on democratic societies, on societies around the world, will be needed for Obama to state this simple truth? When will he realize that politically correct appeasement on the grounds of diversity, cultivated within the exclusive confines of Harvard and other academic institutions is counter productive? That it endangers lives, rather than provides the essential security necessary for any state to function.

Terrorist attacks decades ago had clear objectives. A marxist state, for example. ISIL is equally clear: a caliphate whose bloody borders seem to continually expand within the fanatical hate-filled minds of its leaders and followers. A return to a distant past where the only authority is a crazed man. They are hypocrites of course. Their lives have little to do with the world as it existed under the Ottoman Empire centuries ago. But their need for vengeance against a system that requires rationality and personal responsibility, will clutch at any excuse necessary.

Our kingless kingdoms for a liberal with Tony Blair's clarity. But that type of language that stated the problem with passion and focus in the hours following the attack on 9/11, has been absent from Obama's administration. It's like a forbidden zone, where they fear to tread. Just in case they might find themselves agreeing with Senator Graham, or Ted Cruz.

Obama's response is to label the media as hysterical for its coverage of the events of days past. It makes sense doesn't it? If one digs - reluctantly - into Freud's work with the term one finds that hysteria seems to be - for Freud and others - a social disease caused by a poor early childhood environment. Entirely psychological. Rather than a feminine physiological malfunction, a concept which was used as a sickening weapon against women in the early and mid 20th century. Both conceptions of hysteria have done a great deal of damage.

Perfect isn't it? Just like that screaming student in the quad at Yale, we are all victims of unsafe environments. Why does the media insist that ISIL or ISIS is a grave danger to our free societies? Because we didn't get enough hugs before kindergarten.

As the brave and dedicated men and women in various security forces in Europe and over here, stay up all night gathering the data, or risk their personal safety, in order to prevent further attacks and track down these crazed terrorists, one does not feel they are too worried about the hugs they got in early childhood.

Mr. President, leave Freud wallowing in the sewers of the unconscious world that he dreamed up. Say it clear. We are at war.

Actually, the fight against ISIS and Syria is being waged under the AUMF from ‘The War on Terror.’ Congress has a responsibility for authorizing forces in Iraq and Syria. The conservative Congress has failed to fulfill its responsibility. They are required to do this! Obama has repeatedly asked the Republican Congress for a new AUMF for Syria and ISIS. The GOP has declined to act.

Conservatives would rather criticize the Obama administration in the hopes of gaining political advantage, than commit, fulfill his requests, and act in the interests of the country.

The problem is not with the Obama administration. The problem is with gutless conservatives.

222 days ago, the top guy in the United States for successfully imposing financial embargoes on countries like Iran and Russia, Adam Szubin, was nominated for an Undersecretary position. He would be the guy in charge of stopping ISIS financing. He specializes in shutting down terrorist financing and black markets. He faced no opposition in his Senate hearing.

He was never approved. The position remains empty.

This is another perfect example of conservatives complaining about Obama administration policy, yet actually preventing it from being implemented by refusing to act. Conservatives would rather have the political advantage of seeing ISIS do well. Sure, it might hurt the country, but more importantly to conservatives, this hurts Obama, and that is what matters.

There is no other explanation.

Some conservatives did go on record advocating a no-fly zone in Syria, including Jeb!, Christie, Kasich, and Graham.

Obama has consistently opposed a no-fly zone. Now we see why. It is a very dangerous idea. Obama was proven right. Again.

“Idiot comment” from phx8 but certainly not unusual.

RF,
Feel free to provide an alternate explanation as to why the Republican Congress will not pass the requested AUMF for action against ISIS in Syria, and why the GOP Senate will not approve the nominee for shutting down ISIS financing.

“Obama says he would be open to Congress passing a new AUMF focusing on ISIS. But the version of that AUMF he presented to Congress earlier this year – a three-year authorization to fight ISIS and “associated forces” – didn’t satisfy either Democrats or Republicans calling for Congress to play a greater oversight role.”

Link does not work. In any case, Republicans in Congress have a majority in both Houses, so they do not need Democrats in order to pass an AUMF. And “greater oversight” is a meaningless phrase. They already have oversight.

Obama is a Muslim. It’s not hard to figure out what he is doing. He has surrounded himself with Muslims in his own cabinet, and he is doing all he can to import them into the US. Why would he want to do anything to stop their advancement on the rest of the world?
