If you think Hillary Clinton gets a little foggy, consider the proclamation of her former boss. While President Obama tap dances around his statement that ISIS is contained, FBI Director James Comey was calling ISIS a “chaotic spider web” that has spread to all 50 U.S. states.
Comey’s statement is incredibly frightening considering the ISIS terror attack in Paris recently that killed 129 people. As Obama sells that he’s put a wrapper around ISIS, the world shows it’s belief in him by preparing for more ISIS attacks.
You know the emperor has no clothes when Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein stated she is more alarmed than any time since before the attacks of 9/11.
According to a report by ABC News 7 in Chicago:
“’Those people exist in every state. I have homegrown violent extremist investigations in every single state. Until a few weeks ago there was 49 states. Alaska had none which I couldn’t quite figure out. But Alaska has now joined the group so we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,’ Comey said.”
Americans are seldom privy to terror plots uncovered by U.S. counter-terrorism agents. Chicago, for instance, has several federal cases of people recruited by ISIS buying plane tickets to go overseas. In some cases, they were stopped at O’Hare Airport. The most recent foiled terror plot happened in New York, according to the article:
“In New York City Wednesday, the latest plot – to blow up Coney Island – is a scheme authorities say by three Brooklyn men now in federal custody. According to a criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday, the men – ages 19, 24 and 30, from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan – planned to train with militants in Syria. They also hoped to shoot police officers, FBI agents or military members in the US and even talked of assassinating President Obama, according to the complaint.”
ISIS has been drawing followers through social media for some time, and we are now learning that they are communicating through video games and apps that are difficult to monitor. They are using encryption to evade our intelligence agencies and have taken to the “dark net.”
I don’t need to see another Paris style attack occur the U.S. to understand that we are in imminent danger. I resent being called an Islamophobic because I fear what could happen if ISIS operatives infiltrate the ten thousand Syrian refugees Obama is admitting to the U.S. by the end of this year.
It’s encouraging to see mainstream media, Democratic politicians and state governors rebuke Obama’s arrogance and speak out about the danger he is putting us in. Now if only Obama would be willing to listen to his own FBI director and his traditional supporters, maybe we’d all feel safer.
So how did Obama respond to all this criticism? Last night the White House launched a new hashtag called #RefugeesWelcome. It’s time to #WakeUpAmerica and force our arrogant Commander-in-Chief to hear our voices.
