On Sunday Morning, June 12, 2016, Americans awoke to the horrific news that Jihad had once again come to America, this time in the form of a horrific massacre at a Gay Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, which left 50 Americans dead and 53 wounded at the hands of an Islamic Terrorist, whom, after 9/11, had claimed that Osama bin Laden was his uncle.
The sitting President of the United States of America did not possess the courage to name the reason for the attack. Instead, in speaking to the nation, he said,
Today, as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder — a horrific massacre — of dozens of innocent people. We pray for their families, who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. We stand with the people of Orlando, who have endured a terrible attack on their city. Although it’s still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. And as Americans, we are united in grief, in outrage, and in resolve to defend our people.
I just finished a meeting with FBI Director Comey and my homeland security and national security advisors. The FBI is on the scene and leading the investigation, in partnership with local law enforcement. I’ve directed that the full resources of the federal government be made available for this investigation.
We are still learning all the facts. This is an open investigation. We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer. The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terrorism. And I’ve directed that we must spare no effort to determine what — if any — inspiration or association this killer may have had with terrorist groups. What is clear is that he was a person filled with hatred. Over the coming days, we’ll uncover why and how this happened, and we will go wherever the facts lead us.
…Today marks the most deadly shooting in American history. The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be. And to actively do nothing is a decision as well.
In the coming hours and days, we’ll learn about the victims of this tragedy. Their names. Their faces. Who they were. The joy that they brought to families and to friends, and the difference that they made in this world. Say a prayer for them and say a prayer for their families — that God give them the strength to bear the unbearable. And that He give us all the strength to be there for them, and the strength and courage to change. We need to demonstrate that we are defined more — as a country — by the way they lived their lives than by thhttp://www.abcactionnews.com/news/national/hillary-clinton-releases-statement-on-the-orlando-massacree hate of the man who took them from us.

The presumptive Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, marched in lockstep with her former boss, releasing the following statement:
I join Americans in praying for the victims of the attack in Orlando, their families and the first responders who did everything they could to save lives.
This was an act of terror. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are hard at work, and we will learn more in the hours and days ahead. For now, we can say for certain that we need to redouble our efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad. That means defeating international terror groups, working with allies and partners to go after them wherever they are, countering their attempts to recruit people here and everywhere, and hardening our defenses at home. It also means refusing to be intimidated and staying true to our values.
This was also an act of hate. The gunman attacked an LGBT nightclub during Pride Month. To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country. I am one of them. We will keep fighting for your right to live freely, openly and without fear. Hate has absolutely no place in America.
Finally, we need to keep guns like the ones used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals. This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.
This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country.”
Please note that neither one of them had the intestinal fortitude to blame the real reason for the murder and maiming of 103 Americans: Radical Islam.
The only one who actually sounded PRESIDENTIAL yesterday was the Presumptive Republican Nominee, Donald J. Trump.
Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in 6 months. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims, the wounded, and their families.In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words ‘Radical Islam’. For that reason alone, he should step down. I…f Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the Presidency.
If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen – and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.
The terrorist, Omar Mir Saddique Mateen, is the son of an immigrant from Afghanistan who openly published his support for the Afghanistani Taliban and even tried to run for President of Afghanistan. According to Pew, 99% of people in Afghanistan support oppressive Sharia Law.
We admit more than 100,000 lifetime migrants from the Middle East each year. Since 9/11, hundreds of migrants and their children have been implicated in terrorism in the United States.
Hillary Clinton wants to dramatically increase admissions from the Middle East, bringing in many hundreds of thousands during a first term – and we will have no way to screen them, pay for them, or prevent the second generation from radicalizing.
We need to protect all Americans, of all backgrounds and all beliefs, from Radical Islamic Terrorism – which has no place in an open and tolerant society. Radical Islam advocates hate for women, gays, Jews, Christians and all Americans. I am going to be a President for all Americans, and I am going to protect and defend all Americans. We are going to make America safe again and great again for everyone.
Common sense stuff, right?
Then why are Obama and Clinton blaming the gun, instead of the shooter and his political ideology which disguises itself as a religion?
That’s lake a parent, who, when their child trips and bangs their head on the coffee table, spanks the coffee table and says’ “bad table” in order to appease the child.
Are Obama and Clinton naïve or just plain spineless?
Are they so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?
The maddening thing is that every time you challenge Liberals like Obama and Clinton on this fact, they try to equate radical Islam with American Christianity.
Frankly, their purposeful ignorance blows my mind.
Americans have heard and read from some of this “Me, First Generation” that there is not any difference between American Christianity and Radical Islam.
Quite frankly, that’s like saying that there’s no difference between an in-ground swimming pool and a garden hose.
In Islam, the way to “walk with God and escape his judgement on that final day of judgment” is through ‘falah’, which means self-effort or positive achievement. The faithful must submit to God and follow all of his laws as found in the Koran. Judgment day in Islam involves some sort of measurement of what the believer has done wrong and what they have done right. And, even then, you might not be let into heaven if Allah decides you’re not good enough.
This is the direct opposite of Christianity.
According to the Bible, no man can ever be good enough to deserve God’s favor, to win God’s heaven, because from birth we have Free Will. This Free Will may cause us to reject God and live our lives our own way. That’s why it was necessary for Jesus Christ to die for our sins, covering us in His blood of the New Covenant.
God’s Word tells us that what we need is not ‘falah,’ but faith. To have faith in, to trust, to rely on Jesus and his death as as “the expiation for our sins”. Those who have been Saved by Jesus Christ can be sure that in the future God will welcome them into heaven with wide open arms, because they have been washed by His blood.
Older Americans, such as myself, actually see radical Islam and Sharia law for what it is.
Why is that?
I believe that it is because of the old adage,
With age comes wisdom.
Older Americans can remember when the Shah of Iran was deposed and the Radical Mullahs took over the nation, holding Americans hostage, under the ineffectual American President Jimmy Carter, for 444 days.
The only reason that those hostages were not killed and were let go, was the inauguration of President Ronald Wilson Reagan.
Donald J. Trump hit the nail squarely on the head in his statement about the Orlando Massacre.
The only thing that these barbarians fear is strength, as the leader of Jordan has demonstrated.
Older Americans were raised differently than this current generation, for the most part. We were raised to understand Christianity’s place, as the stitching, in the fabric of our nation.
It is a legacy which our fathers and their fathers, bequeathed to us, along with the courage to stand up for our beliefs.
This latest generation, seems to be more interested in watching a woman who takes a bath in fruit loops, interviewing the President of the United States, than they are about what is actually happening in our nation.
This generation’s predilection for situational ethics, relative morality, and all-encompassing political correctness, is reminiscent of the cattle who are led up the ramp to the slaughter house.
They go through their lives, content in their ignorance, until the blade falls.
Unfortunately, this is the generation that we are leaving our country to.
It is time for them to wake up, grow up, and stand up. .before it’s too late.
I want a President who loves America and will fight for us.
We do not need a President who refuses to call out our enemy by name and, instead wishes to take our Second Amendment Right to defend ourselves away from us.
Please remember what we are all feeling today this November.
And, vote accordingly.
Until He Comes,
