I awoke this morning to learn about the horrific mass shooting in Orlando. I want to first and foremost express my sincere condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones and those wounded and scarred for life.
Let me be very clear: I could care less about the nature of the establishment attacked; they are Americans. And as I sit here penning this missive, President Barack Obama has just completed his remarks, and to say they were disappointing would be the most positive thing I could say. We know this was an Islamic terror attack. We know this is the worst mass shooting of Americans in our history — and the number of fifty dead could rise. We know Omar Mateen shouted out Allahu Ahbar and pledged his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
And President Obama’s own FBI has said this was a terrorism investigation. Yet, Obama could only direct his most stringent comments at gun control and for us to “not give into fear and turn against each other.” If anything, we need to turn against Islamic jihadism. However, as he did with San Bernardino, Obama will make this more about gun control. And I’m quite sure Hillary Clinton will blame the gun manufacturers and stores, and seek more fines and regulations against them.
In this world of the reality of our enemy, the worst thing that could have happened for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton just did — an Islamic terror attack on our soil. Perhaps Obama shouldn’t spend so much time “slow jamming” with Jimmy Fallon. And spare me the “he’s killed more terrorists” line with drone usage – that’s not a panacea folks. A drone cannot crush an enemy and its ideology who replaces the ones and twos like the cockroaches they are. Funny, just last week we shared stories about honor killings in Pakistan and the savage butchering of a Christian woman in Nigeria. Little did I know that within the week we would suffer such an atrocity in America.
And why do we hear people struggling with the question of “motive?” Let me clarify something, why does a 29-year-old Muslim man drive from Port St. Lucie, Florida to Orlando, about 120 miles, with weapons to shoot up a club? It’s obviously not because he’d been refused entry. The motive is clear and the time must come to accept the violence and reality of Islamic jihadism, plain and simple.
Something that those of us who understand the culture of Islam and Islamism must share with you all – we’ve entered into the period known as Ramadan. Any Islamic jihadist who kills infidels and dies doing so during this period, is awarded with what is called “shaheed.” It is an elevated status of Islamic jihadism. That’s the reason why you see an increase of attacks during this period — and don’t forget what just happened in Tel Aviv. We now know ISIS has “officially” claimed responsibility for this attack. This is war and there is only one response: the skies must be dominated by our aircraft to pummel ISIS. That’s the only response, not as Obama did with San Bernardino, calling for more gun control. You see, we fight to live, they fight to die. And this is not about someone having a card saying “Member of ISIS since 2013.” There’s a reason why the al-Qaida magazine is called “Inspire” and the ISIS magazine is Dabiq, named after a battle of Armageddon – they’re a call for jihad, designed to spur these attacks.
Let’s be honest about something. Just close your eyes and imagine…what if the assailant in Orlando were a white Christian male? Yes, I think you get my point. The progressive socialist left now finds itself in a real conundrum, set upon the horns of a dilemma.
They’ve been spending all their time of late harping on bathroom usage for transgender people — and attacking Christians, states and businesses for not being subservient based on religious beliefs and principles. Now, what are Obama and Clinton (as the presumptive nominee), going to do, since one of their beloved special interest lobby groups has been targeted – (and not just in Orlando; don’t forget the arrest in Los Angeles). Will this community now see these progressive leftists as they are, incapable of protecting anyone, including from a vile enemy who does not hide its demonic intentions?
Or will we just be like Europe after Charlie Hebdo, the Paris cafe and concert hall, Belgium airport, the mass sexual assaults in Germany and rapes in Sweden and excuse it away until we forget? After all, in due time the left actually blamed the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo — even our own Secretary of State John Kerry implied that.
Anyone remember what happened after San Bernardino? What happened after the Islamic jihadist attack in Chattanooga at the Navy Reserve Support Facility? Mateen shouted out “Allahu Akbar” the same as Nidal Hasan at Ft. Hood and even after the trial and sentencing, the Obama administration still refers to this as “workplace violence” — is what happened in Orlando soon to be called just a hate crime?
The worst Islamic jihadist terror attacks on U.S. soil after 9-11 have occurred on President Obama’s watch. And he wants to tell us he’s kept us safer than any other president?
There must be consequences and it’s not about us being told to remain calm, seek peace, and be more accepting. No, the consequences must not be imposed on us, America. Who harbors these people? Where do they assemble and get their inspiration to jihad and violence? Who was Omar Mateen’s imam, mullah, cleric? How long was Mateen on a watch list and why was his investigation dropped? I’m tired of seeing the faux aspect of security with the innocuous drills we go through at the TSA while creatures like Mateen, or Syed Farouk and Tashfeen Malik walk amongst us.
I’m tired of an Islamist-sympathizing president who just cannot bring himself to utter the words or realize the issue. It doesn’t bother me one bit to be referred to in denigrating and disparaging terms from the leftist “coexist” crowd and their Islamo-fascist comrades. I know who this enemy is, and the day is coming that I may just be in the position to do as Charles “The Hammer” Martel did at the Battle of Tours against the Islamic invasion — and it would be my pleasure to do so.
How many more Islamic jihadist attacks shall we endure before we all realize these jerks don’t just attack conservatives? In two months, will we remember this atrocity, or will we have blamed ourselves, having been told if we just had more gun control, it never would’ve happened. And give me a break about the “lone wolf” crap. It’s time to start hunting wolves!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
