Dallas Mayor ‘More Fearful’ Of White Men Than Syrian Refugees

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings told MSNBC that he is more fearful of young white men committing mass shootings than Syrian refugees committing terrorist acts in the U.S.

I am more fearful of large gatherings of young white men that come into schools, theaters and shoot people up, but we don’t isolate young white men on this issue.

Mayor Rawlings said that Americans need to recognize that ISIS fighters are not the same as the refugees.

ISIS wants us to demonize these Syrian refugees, want us to alienate these children. ISIS is no more Islamic than the Nazi senior staff was Christian. And so we have got to differentiate between those, fight the fight that we need to do. These are evil human beings that are doing terrible things and we need to target our aggression and our plans against them, not children and not refugees. This is a big issue and we as a nation must step up and make sure we’re secure, but we must not do things that changes the soul of who we are as well.”

Huckabee: ‘Obama More Interested In Protecting The Reputation Of Islam’ Than ‘In Protecting Americans’

GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tweeted:

Judge Jeanine Pirro asked Gov. Mike Huckabee if President Obama has a plan to defeat ISIS.

Judge, he doesn’t have a plan. I don’t think he has a clue. This is what has been so frustrating. When the attacks happened in France, our president was taking a totally opposite approach than President Hollande to France. The President of France, a left-wing socialist, politically-correct president, was closing his country’s borders, and saying we’re going to war unmercifully against ISIS. Our president said, let’s open our borders and let’s go to war against Republican governors. He was more interested in protecting the reputation of Islam than he was in protecting Americans. And I find that very troubling.

Governor Huckabee blamed the Syrian refugee crisis directly on President Obama.

Why are there refugees? It’s because this president’s failed foreign policies have created an absolute disaster in the Middle East and people are having to flee for their lives.

Huckabee said the expenses of these refugees will be a burden to the states.

If you put these refugees in a state, are you going to require the state to educate children, to put them on Medicaid, to find housing for them? To what extent are the taxpayers of that state going to be responsible for your decision? And I can guarantee you that they’re going to be put, the expenses of the refugees, on the backs of the governors in these states, many of whom already have very, very tight budgets and really can’t afford to absorb this.

John Kerry Walks Back Comments Rationalizing Terrorist Attacks

Secretary of State John Kerry said there was more of a rationale for the attack on Charlie Hebdo than the attack at the Bataclan.

There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this or that. 

Retired Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters slammed Kerry’s remarks on Hannity for attempting to justify the Charlie Hebdo attack.

But the only difference between the Charlie Hebdo attacks and the attacks last Friday are, and the later attacks, 40 times more people died. I’m waiting for this president to call Eric Holder out of retirement to lead a new movement, Jihadi Lives Matter. I mean this guy clearly doesn’t get the fact that we’re not the problem. Islamic State, al-Qaeda, the jihadis, Islamic fundamentalism – that is the problem.

In Washington D.C., Secretary Kerry walked back his earlier comments by rejecting any grounds for a terrorist attack.

Now let me make my point as clearly as I can. There are no grounds of history, religion, ideology, psychology, politics, economic disadvantage, or personal ambition that justify the slaughter of unarmed civilians, the bombing of public places or indiscriminate violence toward innocent men, women and children. And such atrocities can never be rationalized, and we can never allow them to be rationalized. There’s no excuse. They have to be stopped.

Trump Criticizes Obama’s Anger At Reporters Instead Of At Paris Killers

On Tuesday night’s broadcast of Hannity on Fox News, Donald Trump criticized President Obama’s demeanor at his press conference in Turkey.

I mean, personally, I don’t think he was meant for this job, you want to know the truth. The temperament is wrong. I watched that disastrous news conference yesterday. It was insulting. He wasn’t angry at the killers, the murderers, the animals that did this horrible thing. He was angry at reporters, and I think some of the Republicans, frankly. But he was angry at the reporters, and I just don’t think — it just, it’s not for him. And unfortunately, we all have to suffer with it, but this job is not for him. That was a terrible performance yesterday, and an embarrassment to the country.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters: Obama’s ISIS Strategy Has Condemned Millions

Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters commented on Monday night’s The O’Reilly Factor on FOX News that President Obama does not have a winning strategy against ISIS.

It is just beyond delusional. This guy, he is so arrogant and at the same time so sensitive. He cannot admit that he’s ever wrong. And boy is he wrong and has been wrong about Islamist terror. And today I listened to him, he reacted as though the massacre in Paris was kind of a political annoyance. The French are in this now. They’re doing their best, but they can’t do it without…NATO can’t do it, nobody can do it without us. And we’re AWOL.

Colonel Peters said the strictures imposed on the U.S. military do more to protect the enemy, rather than civilians.

You cannot, you cannot make war without collateral damage and civilian casualties. You can try to minimize it to a reasonable degree, but this nonsense on the part of the Obama Administration of ‘No civilian casualties ever, no collateral damage.’  What he’s done, he’s saved a handful of lives…condemned millions of people to subjugation, torture, torment, kidnapping, rape, murder, refugee status.

Do you think Obama has a winning strategy to defeat ISIS?
