Dear CSC Family,
As bad as those are, I would argue that his deliberate lack of seriousness in trying to "degrade and destroy" ISIS, tells an even worse tale about Obama's motivations and why we are facing a threat that is no different than what FDR faced in 1941,and significantly worse than what George Bush did after 9/11. The reason it is possible to say that is that you just have to watch what Obama said and then "did not do" as ISIS grew from a regional threat to a global threat--it smacks of his being the "Manchurian Candidate" in every respect. Despite being given intelligence about ISIS in the fall of 2013, that December he called them the "JV" team; the spring of 2014 he watched them take Mosul and was forced to help the Yazidis in the summer of 2014; he then went on TV in September of 2014 and announced he was going to degrade and destroy ISIS--last June he said on TV, he really had no plan to defeat ISIS. Then we saw the refugee crisis blow up in Europe and the attacks on Paris took place and then San Bernardino. You all saw Obama's reaction--mad at GOP for jumping on him; mad at "cable news" for hyping the attacks and scaring people; claiming "Climate Change" was a greater threat than terrorism; blaming lack of "gun control" for the ability of the San Bernardino terrorists to get guns used in the killings (even though California has some of the most restrictive gun laws!)--and on and on. Even today he refuses to do what just about every serious military strategist says is the key to protecting America from ISIS: it must be destroyed in Syria and air power alone will not do the job.
Obama has procrastinated for almost two years in coming to terms with ISIS--isn't it time we all ask why? And as we ask why, shouldn't we also be prepared to once again, as we all did after 2012, engage ourselves to fight the cancer that is Obama's approach to domestic and foreign affairs before it really is too late? Some say it may be too late--I understand why--in 2014 the GOP was given the power to stop Obama and did not do it; we just witnessed another GOP collapse, using tired excuses to weasel out of their latest perfidious actions. So, yes, the landscape looks dismal, but I would argue that we still have a shot as taking back our country with the right person in the White House--someone who will actually fight for our values and fight for America.
So, in closing, if Christmas does raise our hopes in a spiritual way, let it also raise our spirits to accept God's challenges to us as other generations did--now is not the time to give into the radical Leftists in Washington--as Tom Paine said in 1776 in his Common Sense, "The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from service to his country." We have never fell into either one of those categories and I urge you to reflect upon what Paine said and apply it to our time today. Obama has created a crisis that not only involves domestic civil unrest, he has deliberately closed his eyes to the existential threat that radical Islam poses in its many forms and has thus opened the homeland to attack. We must join the fight to stop him and elect someone who can turn the country around--that means we must remain in the fight. With God's blessing in our righteous cause, we will prevail, BUT ALL OF US NEED TO JOIIN THE FIGHT THIS TIME.
I'm sorry for having to dwell on such negative things at this joyous time, but we have always responded to challenges in the past and I know we will all respond to this one. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and thanks to all of the CSC family for their support throughout last year! Dr. Lou
