President Obama’s tragicomic reign recently has taken several truly frightful turns. On his eagle-eyed watch, we now learn, easily preventable homicides actually occurred, and designated potential terrorists man the secure areas of U.S. airports. Meanwhile, Obama deployed the federal government’s ferocious power . . . against a food additive.
For starters, Obama’s hands are soaked with the blood of at least 64 people who were murdered by illegal-alien criminal convicts after he failed to deport them and, instead, released them onto America’s streets.
According to a May 28 letter from Immigration and Customs Enforcement to U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, 121 illegal-alien criminals awaiting deportation were freed into the general population between Fiscal Years 2010 and 2014.
Immigration courts sprang 33. Another 24 were liberated thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Zadvydas ruling, which caps alien pre-deportation detentions at six months. The remaining 64 releases were at Team Obama’s discretion. So, these thugs went off and killed more than five dozen individuals.
His excuse is that their home countries wouldn’t take them back — boo-hoo! — so he had no choice but to let them prowl America’s neighborhoods for murder victims.
Obama somehow convinced Qatar to kennel the Taliban Five, after he idiotically swapped these Guantanamo alumni for alleged deserter Bowe Bergdahl. Just this week, Obama persuaded Oman to accept six more extreme terrorists whom he freed from Gitmo. Obama talked Uruguay into taking another six Gitmoites last December.
If Obama can find refuge for high-level, world-class jihadists, he certainly could encourage, cajole, or flat-out pay El Salvador or Honduras, for instance, to house these illegal-alien convicts, if their native countries don’t want them. If Central American prisons make these illegal-alien crooks uncomfortable, tough.
Here is some free advice on how to avoid this inconvenience: Do not break into America and then commit more crimes.
Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General reported on June 4 that 73 aviation employees prowl secure areas of U.S. airports despite being on the consolidated terrorist watchlist. Why?
As the I.G. explains, “TSA is not authorized to receive all terrorism-related information under current interagency watch-listing policy.”
Nearly 14 years after September 11, TSA, of all agencies, lacks total access to any and all lists that it needs to prevent jumbo jets from being hijacked, sabotaged, or otherwise placed in mortal jeopardy — and by airport employees no less?
Even worse, 12 days after this report was released, Stacey Fitzmaurice, deputy assistant administrator in TSAs’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis, told a House Homeland Security Subcommittee that TSA is “working to expedite this process” of tapping into the totality of terror watchlists.
Here’s what she should have said: “My phone rang five minutes after the I.G. report appeared. Obama called and said, “Stacey, fix this before lunch, or clean out your desk by 5 p.m. Any questions? Click.’”
That’s how a President Giuliani would have handled this stunning fiasco. Instead, Team Obama snores through this potential calamity. Too bad GOP primary voters blew it in 2008.
The Obamites are focused like steel-piercing laser beams on something: trans-fats, also called partially hydrogenated oils. Obama’s FDA this week ordered them out of the U.S. food supply by 2018. Trans-fats are not especially good for you and can cause serious health problems. So can beer, promiscuous sex, and grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon. Is Obama ready to prohibit those things, too?
Obama and the FDA have stomped their jackboots into the necks of Americans whose pursuit of happiness involves trans-fats. This merits rebellion.
In the 19 months that remain before the credits roll on Obama’s deadly farce, he should jail or export illegal-alien killers and instruct the TSA and other anti-terrorist agencies to see whatever lists of terrorists they need to see.
Obama also should stop constantly telling law-abiding American adults what to do, not do, eat, and not eat. We are not sheep, and Obama is not our shepherd.
