Social Insecurity

The highest priority of the President of the United States is to keep it citizens safe and secure.

Not only is President Obama failing in this regard, it almost appears that he has a wanton disregard for the citizens who he took an oath of office to protect and defend. You can almost call him President Amnesty ISIS Ebola Obama.

He has created an enormous amount of Social Insecurity in our country due to putting politics above sound public policy and political correctness above the public good.

He has openly ignored the immigration laws of the United States and has failed to protect our borders. In fact, he has stated that he will grant amnesty to people who are in the United States illegally before the end of the year by executive order.

Thousands of illegal immigrant children have flooded across our border

It seems apparent that the wave of illegal immigrant children and others which overwhelmed the southern border this past summer have brought with them a host of communicable diseases.  Some are speculating that the Enterovrius D68 virus that has affected many of our children and affecting many medical systems in the Midwest is the result of the immigrant invasion.

In fact, someone I know came very close to losing her young son to this potentially deadly virus just one week ago.

The Enterovirus D68 that is spreading among children across the U.S. particularly in the Midwest. The mysterious disease has been known to afflict Central America in the past.
Until recently the occurrence of EV-D68 was rare in the United States. Between 1970 and 2005 only 26 clinical isolates of EV-D68 were reported in the USA. Over the years, clusters have been reported in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and various countries.
Hundreds of children in Missouri and several other states have already been hospitalized because of Enterovirus EV-D68.
ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser recently pointed out that “Viruses don’t tend to respect borders.”
Why won't he enforce the immigration law and enforce our borders which are meant to protect the citizens of the United States? It is simple . The Democrat party needs the votes of Hispanics.

Obama ignored the advice of his military commanders, his State Department and his Secretary of Defense and pulled all troops out of Iraq leading to the rise of ISIS and what now looks to be the inevitable fall of Baghdad and the total loss of Iraq to extremist Islamics. The end result will be unspeakable suffering in Iraq on a scale not seen since the fall of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War.

After the fall of Saigon, an estimated 65,000 Vietnamese were executed. An additional 1 million who had opposed the Communists during the war were sent to "re-education" camps where an estimated 165,000 died. Many South Vietnamese fled the country in the only way possible---by boat. It is estimated that as many as 1.5 million "Boat People" made the drastic decision to flee in makeshift boats. As many as 200,000 died trying. Almost 1 million were accepted into the United States as refugees.

These extremists openly threaten the United States of America and have already blatantly beheaded two Americans and two Brits. A third American (Peter Kassig), a humanitarian worker, has been named as the next potential victim.

This week ISIS went on social media to threaten U.S. military personnel and their family members in their homes according to an Army intelligence bulletin that was reported on by Fox News.

An Army intelligence bulletin is warning U.S. military personnel to be vigilant after Islamic State militants called on supporters to scour social media for addresses of their family members – and to “show up [at their homes] and slaughter them."
The assessment, obtained by Fox News, came from the Army Threat Integration Center which issues early warnings of criminal and terrorist threats to Army posts worldwide.
Why did President Obama not heed the warnings of what now appears to be most of his top advisors on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, his Defense Secretary, his Secretary of State and the Director of the CIA and leave a residual security force in Iraq to protect the gains we had made in securing that country?
It is simple. He campaigned as an Anti-Iraq War President. He did not want to admit that he may have been wrong and that President Bush was right about the threat of a terrorist state in Iraq. He put politics above the personal security of Americans.

Let it not be forgotten that ISIS is also the group that he called a JV team after they had taken over the city of Fallujah in Iraq. Here is the exact quote from President Obama in January, 2014..

I think the analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists (ISIS) who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

Finally, we have Ebola in which President Obama also made an ill-advised statement which also seems to be politically motivated.

This is what President Ebola  Obama said a little over two weeks ago about the chances of Ebola reaching the United States.

"...the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low... In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home." (emphasis added)

Recall that this is the same President who banned flights to and from the United States to Israel during the Israeli/Hamas war but has refused to limit flights from affected West African countries or restrict access to the United States from individuals carrying passports from these countries until the illness is under control.

By comparison, airlines in both Great Britain and France have suspended flights to and from two West African countries.

You also have to question the sense of proportionality in comparing the President's military response to ISIS and to Ebola considering he has committed more troops on the ground in Africa to help respond to the Ebola crisis than he has on ground to help the Iraqis to fight ISIS.

Why has President Obama been so complacent about the threat of Ebola? On this one I do not have a simple answer. Is he concerned about adverse reaction from the African-American community because the source of the Ebola epidemic is in Africa? I don't think most Americans would care if the source was Ireland or Iceland. They want to protect our country from the disease.

The Democrats have always liked to refer to themselves as the party of Social Security.

However, President Obama is quickly making them the party of Social Insecurity.

I would not want to be a Democrat running for office next month with President Obama as the head of my team.

Consider for a moment the risks to our country if any one of these threats spins out of control.

Children dying from an enterovirus that we have generally not seen in the United States in almost 50 years that has been very prevalent in the Central American countries where scores of illegal immigrants stormed over our borders this summer.

An ISIS attack in our country directed at servicemen or their families or the fall of Baghdad with pictures of brazen brutality and bloodshed.

An Ebola outbreak that affects scores of people in this country.

Human beings seek safety and security above all else. Without it, not much matters.

I hope we can overcome the threats to our safety and security from the lack of border security, ISIS and Ebola. The origin of these threats cannot be blamed on President Obama. However, his actions have made each of them a much greater threat to the American people than they otherwise would be.

We are in an age of Social Insecurity right now and President Obama owns it.

And the Democrats own it as well due to their past blind support of President Obama.

It promises to be an interesting Fall as we watch these events unfold. Can President Obama and the Democrats survive it?
