Man With Largest Carbon Footprint In World Says ISIS Not A Big Threat, But Climate Change Is

This comes from a guy who just took a long fossil fueled flight to Cuba, with all the extra planes, then all the fossil fueled vehicles, followed by one to Argentina

(CNS News) “Groups like ISIL can’t destroy us, they can’t defeat us,” President Obama told reporters in Argentina on Wednesday. “They’re not an existential threat to us,” he said.

But a few sentences later, he described climate change as a “major” problem.

On a day when morgues and hospitals in Brussels were still trying to identify the dead and the grievously injured, Americans among them, Obama described the terrorists as “vicious killers and murderers who have perverted one of the world’s great religions, and their primary power, in addition to killing lives, is to strike fear in our societies, to disrupt our societies.”

He went on to say that we should “not respond with fear.” This from a guy whose voter base feels “unsafe” from things like speakers who have different viewpoints, chalk drawings, mean words, and certain flags, among others. They freak out about people clapping. And they’re uber-afraid of a tiny 1.4 degree F increase in global temperatures over a period of 160 years.

The president told people to remember that terrorists “do no have power over us” because they “offer nothing except death.”

In the next sentence, he mentioned climate change:

“And so it’s important for the U.S. president and the U.S. government to be able to work with people who are building and who are creating things and creating jobs and trying to solve major problems like climate change…”

Strange, coming from a man surrounded by tons of security, who also uses lots and lots of fossil fueled travel.

Perhaps people wouldn’t be so concerned if we had any confidence that the President gave a damn about stopping Islamic radicals, rather than telling us we need to accommodate them while also attempting to disarm the citizens of this country.

Each year 15000 Americans kill other Americans
How many are killed by ISIS?
In 2015 more toddlers killed either themselves or others with guns than did Islamic terrorists

Teach headlined:

(President Obama) Says ISIS Not a Big Threat…

Which, of course, President Obama did not say at all or even suggest.

“Groups like ISIL can’t destroy us, they can’t defeat us,” President Obama told reporters in Argentina on Wednesday. “They’re not an existential threat to us,”

And of course you don’t think global warming is major problem, since you don’t understand anything about it. You’re part of the Deni-O-Sphere.

And when did conservatives become these “new conservative” pussies afraid of their own shadows? Now you insist the federal government protect you from violent Muslims who are few and far between here in the US of A. And here we have the most liberal gun laws amongst all advanced nations and you still feel inadequate to protect yourselves and your families from a few stone age religious nuts with knives??

So President Obama isn’t doing enough to protect you from jihadis? Since when did you become so dependent upon the feds? Maybe you’re right. Maybe we do have too much federal gov’t when even gun-toting conservatives feel neutered, impotent and inadequate.

Obama says there is no difference between capitalism, socialism, and communism. If it feels good, do it.

“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said at the Buenos Aires town hall.

“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”

John, how many will ISIS kill if given the chance? I suspect the number diminishes your argument.

Jeffrey, I would wager you can spout the Al Gore spiel off the top of your head. I wonder if you can understand the UN deciding something is not the same as science. Wasn’t last year the year Al Gore, the high priest of the Church of Global Warming said would be ice free? But to placate you and others like you, I had pledged and urge all others to take the same pledge not to let our carbon footprints exceed those of Al Gore and BO. No sweat, earth saved.
