Obama can't seem to us 'Muslim' & 'terrorist' in same sentence

To The Daily Sun,

I was glad to read Mr. Silber's letter in the Dec. 9 Daily Sun. He really tells it like it is.

Did you ever notice how difficult it is for Obama to use "Muslim" and "terrorist" in the same sentence. On the other hand, leave it up to him to use the latest attack to advance his never ending attempts to circumvent our Constitution and gain more and more control. Control is actually the operative word here and I don't believe it is primarily about our guns. Along with the guns, the federal government, led at this time by Obama, is all about people control.
View the thousands of pages of rules and regulations created by un-elected, faceless bureaucrats, steadily chipping away at our freedom and lives. They will not be satisfied until we are reduced to a flock of passive sheep under their full control.

Don't expect this to change if Hillary is crowned to carry on with the left's endless programs of control.

Hillary reminds me of the "Teflon Don" John Gotti. No matter what she does, nothing sticks. Key in her name online, and you will find more questionable subjects than you could stomach at one sitting. Look at Whitewater way back around 1978, just innocent dupes. Check out the $35 million that she and Bill have recently received by giving speeches to various financial institutions, even though she is "no friend of Wall Street."

Mr. Silber refers to Hillary as America's liar in chief. This pretty much covers it with straight answers from her very hard to find. Also, don't expect the FBI to be allowed to find any wrongdoing from their current investigation into her use of her private server for secure messages. Check that out online, very interesting. Just key in Hillary and FBI for an eyeful.

I urge all to check her out before it is too late. If you don't, just line up and join the flock to be.

Obama needs to get serious about defeating radical Islamic terrorism

To The Daily Sun,

Just weeks before ISIS took Mosul and Ramadi, Obama called them the "jayvee team"; just hours before the terror attack in Paris, Obama said ISIS was "contained"; Just days before the ISIS attack in San Bernardino, California, President Obama said the group didn't pose a threat to the homeland; and ... if you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance.

ISIS continues to gain strength. The number of foreign fighters traveling to Syria to fight for ISIS's cause has doubled in the past 18 months. Top military brass and politicians on Capitol Hill have roundly criticized our strategy; or lack thereof, to defeat or "contain" them. There's belief in one's ideology and then there's reality.

Now, the Donkeys and Elephants on Capitol Hill are demanding the president deliver a coherent strategy to defeat ISIS. House Speaker Paul Ryan is working to force the president into a response on the issue. Many Donkeys voted with Elephants, in the face of the president's veto threat, for a bill requiring him to present a comprehensive strategy to eliminate ISIS.

The administration needs to stop playing politics with our national security. The administration needs to get serious about defeating, not containing, radical Islamic terrorism. Reps. Steve Israel, Adam Schiff and Senators Dianne Feinstein, Bill Nelson have expressed not only concern, but alarm over the president's lack of strategy and his naive rhetoric on the threat posed by Islamic terrorism.

In a time when extreme partisanship is the norm, Speaker Ryan has managed to corner the president, using members of the president's own party, on this issue. Ryan has been able to do so because this is an issue that is a top concern of the American people.

The Donkey presidential candidates are busy campaigning on platform that amounts to who can give away more "free" stuff that taxpayers will have to pay for. The Elephants are battling about national security, immigration and the economy.

Terrorism rivals the economy as the most important issue to Americans in the 2016 presidential election. Primaries open in two months. The general election is less than a year out. More people are paying attention to the contest at this point ... than in any race going back nearly 30 years ... for a reason. One party is responding to what is going on in the real world and the other is chasing a Fabian Utopia.
