I wanted to discover the depth of the Obama Administration’s culpability in the Orlando Massacre, because something teed off both Sen McCain and President Obama this week. McCain when he accused Obama for being directly responsible for the events in Orlando, and Obama when he showed his thin skin over Trumps challenge to call the act one of Radical Islamic Terror.
Both got me to thinking, there must be something there for such practiced Pols to lose their cools publicly like that.
But let’s begin with some myth busting and expose Orlando for what it was – an act very much in line with Islam and Sharia law. So says quite a few Imams in Australia:
Imam Yusuf Peer, the chairman of the Council of Imams Queensland, who is a member of the national peak body, told The Weekend Australian yesterday that it was “not permissible” to be gay and Muslim.
When asked if sharia required death, Imam Peer said: “Yes.”
Imam Peer said because a “proper process” involving “committees” applied, it prevented the “random bashing and killing” of homosexuals: “Nobody can implement Islamic sharia on their own. There is a procedure, there is arbitration, there is a committee.”
So the method Omar Mateen used was wrong, but the result maybe not so much??
Sheik Alsuleiman has previously quoted Islamic law on the punishment for zina — sex outside marriage — in which he asked his followers to “remember” sharia calls for the death of those who commit adultery.
Extremist Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir’s spokesman Uthman Badar said on Facebook yesterday that Mr Turnbull was condemning the “normative Islamic position on homosexuality” and criticised fellow Muslims for listening to a lecture on “how they should take liberalism instead of Islam as reference point” in their lives.
OK – so we get the picture. And given how LGBTs have become more and more tolerated by the Great Satan America, it is not a huge leap of logic to see a connection.
So what has the Obama administration done to protect LGBT Americans? The answer is sad. Step 1 was to stop checking people from certain countries as they entered the US (a program not too different from what Trump has discussed at times):
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on April 28 [AJStrata: 2011] that it would terminate the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) …
Individuals seeking admission to the United States and who were required to participate in the program were subject to a specialized entry process at U.S. ports of entry, including having their fingerprints and photograph taken. Participating visitors were also [sic] be required to “check-in” with immigration officials 30 days after being admitted to the United States and again at the end of one year, in order for immigration officials to verify that they were complying with the terms of their visas.
Additionally, the Department of Justice (DOJ) required certain individuals from the designated countries who were already in the United States to also participate in NSEERS.
Geez, seems reasonable. The countries on the “Can’t Just Walk In” list were:
Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
So we paid special attention to people from these countries with known radicals bent on destroying western civilization. At least until 2011.
According to DHS, between September 2002 and the end of September 2003 (nearly the full course of the special registration component of the NSEERS program), 83,519 individuals participated in special registration interviews at immigration offices nationwide. As a result of these interviews, 13,799 individuals were placed in removal proceedings.
Emphasis mine. Can we speculate that this means 13,799 possible deadly attacks were foiled? I mean, to be an individual of such threatening stature to warrant being expelled, I would think so?
Of the remainder of the 83,519 individuals monitored in NSEERS, how many decided not to perform a terrorist act once they realized they were exposed? Would any sleeper cell want them??
But Step 2 was the worse action taken by the Obama Administration. Instead of focusing on people from areas of the world known for their hatred of all things American, Obama’s DHS was out training law enforcement to watch Evangelicals, Mormons, Jews and Christians.
Yes, you read that right. In fact, Evangelicals were at the top of the threat list (now we know why we don’t want to use secret lists to curb constitutional rights).

Todd Starnes, writing for Fox News, reports that during a U.S. Army training event, an Army instructor cited Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism—along with Al Qaeda and Hamas.
Not only was it implied that Evangelical Christianity is as dangerous as a terrorist organization, but it was at the top of the list of threats. And, here is that list:
Ku Klux Klan
Sri Ram Sene
Kamane Movement / Kach
Army of God
Nation of Islam
Jewish Defense League
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
“Islamophobia” was also listed as a form of religious extremism.”
“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, said. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”
Red emphasis mine, black emphasis from original. Talk about confused! I do not recall Evangelicals, Jews, Mormons, Catholics or Christians killing mass numbers of people in the name of god since 9/11
At least not American ones. The cause of Team Obama’s confusion seems to be a bigotry towards religion in general:
“There was a pervasive attitude in the presentation that anything associated with religion is an extremist.”
A report issued by the Department of Justice in 2011 relating to “National Security Division Statistics on Unsealed International Terrorism and Terrorism – Related Convictions 9/11/01 – 3/ 18/10? identified, after analysis, more than 80% of all such convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism involved defendants driven by a radical Islamist agenda.
Wow. No wonder Obama is angry at being called out and McCain accused him of creating the mother of all FUBARs. He really is going to avoid facing Islamic threats at any cost, isn’t he? Maybe Obama does need the qualifier “Islamic” so he can distinguish an Evangelical from an Islamists.
The left completely exposed America to violence and death under Team Obama, and Hillary wants more of the same, but faster!
