In the wake of the Muslim terrorist attacks in Paris most of the world’s most important political and cultural leaders have spoken out to offer support and encouragement to our allies. However, our most important leaders have fallen far short of comforting with the rhetoric they’ve been regurgitating to the media. President Obama and his liberal lackeys inside and out of the White House have done their very best to cloud the matter and distract from the core issues in the Paris attacks.
The Obama team has rejected the notion of Islam as dangerous to freedom and has continued to embrace the resettlement of refugees on our own soil. American (and European) liberals have ignored the reality that this was an ISIS driven Islamic attack on the West, and that several of the participants had posed as refugees escaping Syria for freedom in the West.
Fortunately, we have a presidential election just around the corner, and in that election we’ll have several candidates taking part who offer a very different vision of our future than the one Barack Obama is attempting to foist upon us. Earlier this week one of those candidates, Carly Fiorina, sent out a letter detailing her anger at both the attack and the response by our government in the aftermath.
Like you, I am angry, heartsick, and heartbroken at the carnage in Paris.
Mostly though, I am angry.
Angry that Friday morning, just hours before the Paris attacks began and against all the evidence, President Obama declared ISIS “contained” and took a victory lap. They are not a JV team, as Mr. Obama has said. They are not contained. They are at our shores and their measure of victory is the body count.
I am angry that Hillary Clinton dares to ask “what difference does it make” how four Americans died in Benghazi. And then she tells us that we must empathize with our enemies.
I am angry that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton declared victory in Iraq in 2011, abandoned all our hard-won gains for political expediency and contrary to the advice of our generals, thus leaving vast swaths of territory and too much weaponry to be gobbled up by ISIS.
I am angry that President Obama unilaterally decides that we’ll accept up to 100,000 Syrian refugees, even while his administration admits we cannot determine their ties to terrorism.
Mostly, I am outraged because the murder, mayhem, danger and tragedy we see unfolding in Paris, throughout the Middle East and too often in our own homeland, are the direct consequence of this administration’s policies. You cannot lead from behind.
The world is a tragic and dangerous place when we do not lead. We cannot be the world’s policeman, but we must be the world’s leader.
As President, I will restore our prosperity and possibilities for every American regardless of their circumstances. I will cut our government down to size and hold it accountable.
As Commander in Chief, I will invest in our military, honor their sacrifice, value their service and listen to their best advice. One candidate in this race has said he knows more about ISIS than our generals. He is wrong and deeply misguided.
America must gather our allies, and lead. France, Britain, Germany—all are threatened, as is every nation in Europe. Jordan, Kuwait, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia; the Bahrainis, the Emiratis, the Kurds–all are fighting ISIS on the ground as we speak and all have asked for support, weapons, material and intelligence sharing from us.
Mostly, this Administration has said no. I will say yes.
We must nominate and elect a President who proudly accepts the mantel of leadership that a weary world is eager for us to wear. I know what such leadership requires. I will recognize dangers with eyes wide open but will also embrace with open arms the enormous opportunities and amazing potential of our time.
With your prayers, your support and your votes, I will lead the resurgence of this great nation, here at home and around the world.
Thank you again for your continued support.
Conservatives, this next national election has some major implications and while I am not endorsing any candidate here, I am asking you to work harder and with greater purpose than you ever have before in an effort to see conservatives win sweeping election victories in 2016. Our children and our world need conservatives to win, and win BIG, in 2016.
