Ted Cruz: John Kerry ‘Should Retire,’ An ‘Apologist’ For Radical Islamic Terrorism

Video Transcript:

Sen. Ted Cruz told Sean Hannity that President Obama and his party associates are “apologists” for Islamic terrorists.

Both John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have all served as apologists for radical Islamic terrorists. An apologist is someone who gives rationalization, someone who gives justifications.

John Kerry and Hillary Clinton discredited the Islamic rationale behind the recent terror attacks.

Clinton: Let’s be clear though, Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.

Kerry: There is a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of…not legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, “Okay, they’re really angry because of this or that.”

Cruz said the Democrats’ defense of Islamic terrorism is going to threaten our country.

Look, John Kerry’s statement is shameful. He should resign. I’ve called on John Kerry to resign multiple times. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama – the modern democratic party has a blindness to radical Islamic terrorism and they’ve endangered the safety and security of this country, the safety and security of millions of Americans.

Lastly, Cruz laid out what he would do as president.

Number one: we will finally secure the borders. We will get it done. I will build a wall that works, we will triple the border patrol, we will deport criminal illegal aliens, we will stop illegal immigration. But number two: as Commander-in-Chief, we will defeat radical Islamic terrorism. You know, President Obama said in Europe, he doesn’t have time for American leadership or America winning. What on earth is happening when the president says he doesn’t believe in America winning anymore. I’ll tell you what, my philosophy on radical Islamic terrorism is exactly the opposite. To borrow a page from Ronald Reagan in the Cold War, my philosophy is very simple: We win, they lose. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism.

CNN’s Refugee Gotcha Question To Ted Cruz Backfired Big Time

Video Transcript:

In the aftermath of the Paris terrorist attacks on Friday, Ted Cruz described President Obama’s refugee program as insane.

I’ll tell you what’s shameful – is that we have a president who after seven years still refuses to utter the words, “radical Islamic terrorism.” What Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are proposing is that we bring to this country tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees. I have to say – particularly in light of what happened in Paris – that’s nothing short of lunacy.

Dana Bash tried to insinuate that with Cruz’s proposed refugee ban, his father – who was a Cuban refugee – wouldn’t have been allowed in.

Well, see that’s why it’s important to define what it is we’re fighting. If my father were part of theocratic and political movement like radical Islamism, that promotes murdering anyone who doesn’t share your extreme faith or forcibly converting them, then it would make perfect sense.

Cruz argued that persecuted Syrian Muslims should be given safe haven in the Middle East.

Cruz: There is no doubt that millions of people are suffering from the rise of radical Islamic terrorism. Christians are suffering, Jews are suffering and other Muslims are suffering – they’re being persecuted.

Bash: Are you saying Muslims shouldn’t be allowed in the U.S.?

Cruz: What I’m saying is Syrian Muslim refugees should be resettled in the Middle East in majority Muslim countries.

The GOP hopeful also argued for a more aggressive military force against ISIS.

As commander in chief, I will say, “We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism.” President Obama is launching between 15 and 30 airstrikes a day. I’ve described this as photo-op foreign policy. Actually you’ll like this, what I’ve said is they’re launching bombs for CNN’s credit. To show them on TV but not actually designed to take out ISIS.

After Paris Attack, Obama Shames GOP Opposing Refugees – Blows Up In His Face

Video Transcript:

Once again, islamic

Last week he said ISIS was contained – Islamic terrorists then attacked Paris. Now, he mocked the GOP saying Syrian “widows and orphans” are not to be feared.

Apparently they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. At first they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates, now they’re worried about three year old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.

Just hours later, a female terrorist detonated a suicide vest in front of French police –  injuring some and killing this bomb-sniffing dog.

But Obama reassures that there are exhaustive security screenings for the refugees.

What it is that is not already being done under this rigorous 18 to 24 month process to admit refugees, and the screening that’s taking place by an entire set of U.S. agencies that are specialists in countering terrorism. If they have a specific suggestion, then they can make it.

It’s not just Republicans in opposition. Democrats Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin joined Speaker Paul Ryan calling for a pause on refugees.

We cannot let terrorists take advantage of our compassion. This is a moment where it’s better to be safe than to be sorry. So we think the prudent, the responsible thing is to take a pause in this particular aspect of this refugee program in order to verify that terrorists are not trying to infiltrate the refugee population.

The Liberal Media Is Turning On Obama – His Strategy Against ISIS Isn’t Working

Video Transcript:

The day before the terrorist attacks in Paris, President Obama said his strategy against ISIS is working.

Well I don’t think [ISIS is] gaining strength. What is true is that, from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq. But you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein on Monday refuted Obama’s claims on MSNBC.

I’ve never been more concerned. ISIL is not contained. ISIL is expanding.They just put out a video saying it is their intent to attack this country and I think we have to be prepared. There’s only one way we’re going to diminish them and that is by taking them out because they are growing.

Even CNN’s Christiane Amanpour called out Obama’s lies.

According to many of the military experts, here and around the world, who I’ve spoken to that our strategy is working – people do not believe that to be the case. [Obama] is saying ISIS is contained. This also is not actually true. ISIS is not contained because ISIS attacked a Russian plane, attacked Beirut, and has now attacked [Paris.]

On Monday, even the MSNBC Morning Joe panel ridiculed the Democrat candidates for skirting the term “radical Islam.”

Joe Scarborough: How stupid do they think we are? You have to recognize the threat. The threat is radical Islam.

Mike Barnacle: How is use of the phrase radical Islam going to inflame ISIS anymore than it’s already inflamed? Radical Islam is basically just an aspect of the truth of what’s going on.

MSNBC Hits Ben Carson For Lack Of Substance To Be Pres. – What’s Hillary Running On?

Video Transcript:

The mainstream media is doing its best to delegitimize Ben Carson and his candidacy for president.

Jon Meacham: A presidential campaign cannot simply be this is your life.

Mika Brzezinski: A movie.

Michael: It has to be about our lives. It has to be about the life of the nation. But there has to be a core of substance about what that life story did, means for all of us. And so, simply to run on biography and then on alleged media bias against elements of that biography is not sufficient to be a serious candidate for president of the United States.

Brzezinski: Maybe not for you or me, but apparently he’s doing quite well.

Mark Halperin explained why Dr. Carson and other Republicans are polling so well.

The four top candidates are for fundamentally changing the way our government works. And Dr. Carson is leading that argument as much as anybody else.

So Carson’s bio isn’t enough. Sure, it has to be based on a candidate’s policies. What, then, is Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton running on?

Clearly, I’m not asking people to vote for me simply because I’m a woman. I’m asking people to vote for me on the merits, and I think one of the merits is I am a woman.

Is being a woman a “core of substance” that qualifies her to be president?

Don’t you someday want to see a woman president of the United States of America?

Is Dr. Carson a legitimate candidate? What substance or accomplishments make Hillary Clinton qualified to be president? Share and comment below.
