Egyptian TV Host on California Terror Attack: Americans Should Stick Obama on an Impalement Rod
You should beware not to raise a lion, or it will devour you. You should never think that… It was America that raised and funded terrorism. We've said to them a hundred times, a million times, and we are still saying: America will pay the price in a way it cannot even imagine. Obama the liar, the ally of the terrorists... I call him a liar. He's a liar! He is the ally of the terrorists. This Obama deserves to stand trial. If the American people…
But I would like the Congress to send Obama to the guillotine, because three days before the [San Bernardino] terror attack… The attack was on Wednesday. On Tuesday or on Monday, he appeared and lied, like he always does, that liar. All the allies of terrorism are liars. He said: "There is no threat to American citizens." It is as if he was trying to cover… Today, I suspect that Obama is connected to the terrorists who carried out the attack. When he says something like this, he numbs the security agencies, the military, and the intelligence agencies.

Did he REALLY say that they were going to prevent people on the no fly list from buying firearms?
Does anyone not see the problem with that? They can put ANYONE They want on the no fly list...There is no due process to that. Us allowing that to happen could be the beginning of the end..
He creates a bigger list, we've already seen memorandums that state that people with libertarian mindsets and former vets are potential threats, then it's well we have to take it further than preventing the people on these lists from purchasing new firearms, we have to make sure they don't already have them. So we'll be confiscating their firearms. But don't worry, all of you can still purchase your firearms and we won't take yours.
Once that precedent is set, they can confiscate and prevent anyone they want from getting or keeping arms.
This is MUCH bigger a deal than people are realizing. These are the steps that equate to the frog in a pot with the temp being raised versus dropping them into a boiling pot.
“I was incredibly frustrated hearing the President say he would destroy ISIS,” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told CNN. “ISIS needs to be obliterated.”
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz shared Christie’s scathing assessment of Obama’s speech. “The President seems to think that ISIS will go away just by us bombing them,” Cruz said. “If I am President, I will bomb them so hard that will feel like they have been triple-bombed.”
Calling it “too little, too late,” Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul ripped the President’s proposal for keeping potential terrorists from obtaining visas. “We need to stop them before they even obtain the pens necessary to fill out visa forms,” he said.
Of all of the Republican Presidential candidates, the front-runner Donald Trump was perhaps the most withering in his criticism of the President’s speech. “I only heard the President use the word ‘tough’ once,” Trump said. “I gave a speech last night and used it fifteen times.”
Pressed for specifics about how he would combat ISIS, Trump acknowledged that he had “no new ideas,” but added, “My no new ideas will be much tougher than his no new ideas, you better believe it.”
