"Rook" has some thoughts on Obama's record.
The last Bush administration had a policy of taking the fight against Islamic terrorism to the terrorists, to fight them on their own turf instead of fighting them here at home. That policy resulted in NO Islamic terrorist attacks for the remainder of Bush's two terms in office after nine-eleven.
When Obama came into power he ordered the withdrawal of ALL U.S. troops from Iraq, leaving a vacuum of military sway in the region. Obama also initiated a policy of "leading from behind" and "No troops on the ground" in the war on Islamic terrorism, leaving the fight to the Arabs and Persians. All we have left in the fight against Islamic terrorism is a paltry couple thousand troops in Afghanistan, left there at the request of the Afghan president.
In the meantime Obama's policies have nurtured the growth and spread of both ISIS and Al Qaeda, the fall of Yemen to Iran backed Houti fighters (resulting in the loss of our last remaining Human Intelligence in the region), the destabilization of Libya, Iraq, Syria and large swaths of North Africa. Trade routes by sea are increasingly threatened. We have had ISIS and Al Qaeda attacks here at home, in Canada and most of Europe. ISIS has trained fighters living among us at home and thousands more in Mexico and Canada, planning to stage more attacks against us.
While the Middle East and Africa are in turmoil and Europe is shaking in their boots because of Obama's "leading from behind" and "no boots on the ground" policies, the Russians and China have been emboldened. Russia is staging clandestine military invasions of neighboring countries and China has expanded it's naval and other military assets into the waters of other countries, seizing islands and making claims of "territorial waters" in areas of open sea that have been free for all to navigate.
While Russia, China, Iran and North Korea have substantially increased their military and naval buildup, Obama and the Democrats have cut our military to the bone. Weapons and aircraft projects that took decades to develop have been cancelled or severely curtailed. We have decreased our available "boots on the ground" to a pittance of what they were seven years ago.
It took the United States a hundred years and two world wars to become the sole superpower and greatest peace keeper the world has ever known. It has taken Obama and his Democrats a short few years to weaken or destroy most of the diplomatic and military gains of the last hundred years.

"Rook" has some thoughts on one of Obama's appointees.
Huma Abedin is to Hillary Clinton what Valerie Jarrett is to Barack Obama, Clinton’s closest adviser and confidant. Huma was raised in Saudi Arabia and is a Muslim.
Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is Pakistani and is still living in Saudi Arabia. She holds a professorship in Sociology at Dar Al-Hekma College in Jeddah and is said to be an “operative” of the Muslim Brotherhood, as was Abedin’s late father Syed Zainul Abedin. Syed was a lecturer at Aligarh Muslim University. At a celebration before Huma's wedding to former Congressman Anthony Weiner, Clinton said in a speech, "I only have one daughter. But if I had a second daughter, it would be Huma." While Clinton was Secretary of State, Huma was her Deputy Chief of Staff. Why only Deputy Chief of Staff? Because Huma “worked” there only part time, while also being an executive for the Clinton Foundation.
Huma‘s executive level position at State allowed her diplomatic access to ambassadors and leaders of other nations, especially Muslim nations since she is a Muslim and fluent in Arabic. During her time at State Huma also “worked” part time for Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm in investment banking and business intelligence. Teneo was formed in 2011 by Doug Band, former Counselor to President Clinton, along with former U.S. Ambassador Declan Kelly. During Huma’s tenure at the State Department, Teneo Holdings and the Clinton Foundation several Muslim nations, including Saudi Arabia, “donated” tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Huma was in a uniquely pivotal position while at State to access and move large sums of money for the Clinton Foundation. Is it a coincidence that millions of dollars moved from Muslim nations to the Clinton Foundation during the same period of time?
Is it a coincidence that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private email server in her home exclusively for both her official and personal emails, thus preventing ANY ACCESS to her emails to and from Huma, or anyone else? Is it a coincidence that Huma also had an account on Clinton’s private email server, so that Huma’s emails to and from the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, or anyone else, are also inaccessible? Is it a coincidence that, by Clinton’s own admission, all emails on her private email server have been deleted and the hard drive has been “wiped clean”? If American voters turn out to be so stupid that they would elect someone like Hillary Clinton as their President, after eight years of Barack Obama, then America is already doomed by Darwin’s scientifically proven process of Natural Selection.
"Peter" has some thoughts on Hillary Clinton.
“Stupid is as stupid does.” – Forrest Gump
Do we want a president that has so little faith in our government that they set up their own private email server and email system in their own house because they don’t trust government systems?
Do we want a president that has so little integrity that they set up their own private email server in their own house because they don’t want anyone outside their own nefarious circle of coconspirators to ever see their communications with each other?
Do we want a president that is so stupid that they tell us lie after lie, changing their story so often that they can’t remember all their lies and thus gets caught?
Do we want a president that is so incompetent that they would allow their ambassador and other staff to be murdered and then lie about it, knowing that nobody could prove their incompetence because all of their communications are on their private server in their home and unavailable to anyone, whether a Congressman or a reporter using a FOIA request?
Do we want a president that is so calloused and evil that they would lie to the families of the victims, in the presence of the flag-draped coffins, about the circumstances of their murders – several days after the truth had been leaked to the press?
Do we want a president that is so lawless that after the existence of their private server and email system is discovered and subpoenaed they refuse to allow inspection of the contents and instead delete all the emails and wipe the server clean?
Do we want a president that is so arrogant that they openly mock the government and people they seek to lead, while hiding behind lawyers and heaps of destroyed evidence?
How stupid is Hillary Clinton to think that WE are that stupid?

"Peter" has some thoughts on Islam and extremists. The “prophet” Mohammad and his armies tried to conquer the world and rid it of all “infidels,” which are all Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists and everyone else in the world who is not a Muslim. Subsequent Islamic leaders down through the centuries have tried to mimic their prophet by launching military campaigns, invading other countries and slaughtering the “infidels” who lived there.
When the religious leader of Iran publicly pronounces “death to America” he sincerely means it, as do all who follow him. When the ISIS Emir publicly pronounces “death to America” he sincerely means it, as do all who follow him.
They are not being extreme about their religion; they are following the example of their prophet and what is written in their holy book, the Qur’an. The difference between Iran, the Shiites and ISIS, the Sunnis is a squabble about doctrine that is irrelevant to us. It’s like the difference between Catholics and Protestants.
Rather than extremists or radicals a better description for ISIS and Iran is Islamic fundamentalists. They view the rest of the world as a corrupting influence on Muslims everywhere. They appeal to their own, especially their youth, to resist corruption and sin and help to rebuild the Islamic Caliphate of their prophet. That is why so many Muslims living in the west are responding to the siren call of doing battle against evil and earning a place in paradise by killing infidels.
The Sunni sect and the Shiite sect each consider the other to be heretical and no better than infidels. They are each in the process of positioning themselves to stage a prolonged and bloody war against each other for control of an Islamic Caliphate comprising the entire Arabian Peninsula and North Africa. Once their war is settled, if ever, the winner will attempt to expand their territory by invading Europe.
Their hostilities have been going on for centuries, but for many decades it percolated in the background, held in check by the military power of the United States and Europe. But Barack Hussein Obama, as the Muslim raised democrat President of the United States, has withdrawn and reduced our military power, allowing the percolating hatred between Sunnis and Shiites to explode into open warfare. If their war ends in unification the west and the United States will be targeted for invasion and war.
In the meantime both Sunnis and Shiites will not overlook any opportunity to attack their common enemy – everyone who is not a Muslim!
"Legion" has some thoughts on what the Department of Homeland Security thinks about threats to America.
"Legion" has some thoughts on the no-go zones of Paris.
I must admit I had heard of no-go zones, but had no idea they were so prevalent throughout Europe. At first glance it seems somewhat insignificant that Muslims would choose to live with their own kind. You can go to most any city in America and find cultural and/or ethnic areas such as Harlem, Little Cuba, China Town, Little Italy, and on and on. It's also true that crime has been a part of many of these "zones", especially in the early 20th century. (i.e. The Italian mafia, the Jewish mafia, etc.) As hectic and crime ridden as many of those areas became, they knew they were still subject to the laws of the US. But these Islamic no-go zones are a whole nuther ballgame.Muslims don't just want their own neighborhood, they want it totally separate from the laws and regulations of the city, state and country in which they exist. They have their own schools where they teach their kids how to hate and kill, their own barbaric Sharia Law, their own government and of course their own "god". If anyone or anything tries to enter their "zone" they will be surrounded and stoned, beaten, robbed, killed or whatever to make sure they never come back again. The police, fire departments, ambulances, etc won't even enter the zone to protect those being attacked. Is that out of fear, respect for Islam, or political correctness gone crazy?These no-go zones have become hot spots within a democratic, freedom loving country for recruiting by ISIS, al Qaeda and other sicko wings of Islam. Yet, authorities can do, or will do, nothing to stop it. Neither will the so called "moderate Muslims" within these Islamic zoos.Why did Europe allow these havens of hatred to develop? Now that they so vividly realize their mistake, how do they get rid of them without being savagely attacked by Islamic subversives such as ISIS? What's even a bigger question is why do people in America see nothing wrong with conceding small segments of America to people who belong to a religion committed to destroying us? You think it isn't happening in America? May I call your attention to Dearborn MI. There are rumored to be small no-go zones being started, but Dearborn is far and away the largest such zone in the country. Not long ago there was a Christian organization marching in support of a Christian event when a large group of Dearborn Muslims savagely beat and stoned them, even with Dearborn police standing by and watching. They wouldn't even respond to the desperate pleas of the Christian marchers.And while this is going on we have a Muslim loving president who refuses to relate Islamic terrorism with Islam. He just can't bring himself to saying anything against his preferred religion. And yet, there are people who will still vote for him. Unbelievable.Oh yes, and they mass produce, vote, and run for political office (as democrats). The Obama administration is loaded with Muslims, some of which are purported to be members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

"Peter" has some thoughts on cyber-security.
How did government communicate electronically before the Internet?
Does anyone remember the ARPANET? The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was one of the world's first operational packet switching networks, the first network to implement TCP/IP, and was the predecessor of what was to become the global Internet. It was built in 1969 to connect the various Defense agencies and contractors involved in developing systems of all types. Eventually many universities involved in similar research were also connected to ARPANET.
Users of ARPANET were hard-wired into the network because much of the content on the network was classified. Eventually they were able to safely transmit most forms of documents and graphics and communicate by what we now call email. Because the ARPANET was a stand-alone network not connected to any other unsecured network, it was secure from hacking or sabotage from outsiders.
Why don’t we still have stand-alone government networks not connected to the Internet? The work could still be done securely and without hackers from other countries stealing our data and sabotaging our networks. Contractors would adopt whatever practices the government chose to use in order to get the contracts. Why do government workers need the Internet? What can they do on the Internet that they couldn’t do on a secure, stand-alone network?
An Inspector General’s report awhile back shed some light on the subject. They inspected the workstations of several hundred government employees and found that their government computers were frequently used to view and even download pornographic images and videos. They were used to look up or update FaceBookaccounts. They were used to send out personal messages on Twitter and other similar services. In other words, the Internet access was for the personal convenience of the employees, to the detriment of the government (and taxpayers).
Why do our leaders in the Defense Department, the Military, the IRS, FBI, Homeland Security, the Congress, etc. allow this compromise of national security, efficiency and effectiveness? Any network that has a connection to another network with Internet access is at risk of hacking and sabotage. Why would the CIA, FBI, NSA, IRS, Pentagon, or any agency that needs confidentiality want to expose their networks to other networks with Internet access? Because they want Internet access for themselves and they’re willing to put their country at risk to get it. It’s NOT a necessity, only a convenience.
It’s time that the leaders of government, including the President, man up and admit their laziness and lust is costing the rest of us dearly. Will Congress members (either party) pass legislation limiting Internet access except where required to do the job, or where the network contains classified data? Ha! That’ll be the day…
"Rook" has some thoughts on leadership.
In recent years we have seen Islamic Jihad terrorism grow exponentially. We have seen Muslims attack and murder soldiers, police and civilians in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia and throughout the Middle East. We have seen Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AKA ISIS) conquer huge swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq, soundly defeating the Iraqi Army in the process.
During those same recent years we have seen and heard President Obama repeatedly say that terrorism is on the decline and Al Qaeda has been "decimated." Obama has said we don't need troops in Iraq or Afghanistan and we don't need our military to be as strong as it was in previous years. He says we don't need GITMO or all the intelligence that can be gathered by capturing and interrogating terrorists. He has released GITMO prisoners, only to have many of them show up in new terrorist leadership roles or on the battlefield. We have seen Obama "slow walk" our air power in the fight against ISIS, allowing less than 5% of the sorties per month than our military is capable of in a single day.
We need some answers to get America and Europe back on track in the fight against the spread of Islamic terrorism. Is Obama's Islamic upbringing causing him to sympathize with the enemy and manipulate our foreign policy and military to give advantage to the Islamic terrorists? Or is he and his hand-picked inner circle so inept, incompetent and stupid that they don't understand the consequences of their decisions and actions?
No matter which answer is correct, the consequences for our national security are the same. When our military power is compromised or degraded the entire world is affected. Our allies lose confidence and fail to take decisive action. Our enemies are emboldened and become more aggressive. That is why we have such growth in the number and magnitude of terrorist attacks against the free world. The Muslim terrorists, the Russians and the Chinese smell weakness and fear in the U.S. and our allies. The Muslim terrorists will continue their slaughter; the Russians and Chinese will continue their aggressive and invasive behavior until we regain strong and competent leadership.
"Ernie" has some thought on what he would do to put the U.S. on course.
