President Barack Obama said in an interview that aired Thursday that he is confident the U.S. is safe from a Paris-style attack from ISIS and that American law enforcement is well equipped to protect the nation during the holidays.
“ISIL will not pose an existential threat to us. They are a dangerous organization like al Qaeda was, but we have hardened our defenses,” Obama told CBS. “The American people should feel confident that, you know, we are going to be able to defend ourselves and make sure that, you know, we have a good holiday and go about our lives.”
This is two days away from a terrorist attack by ISIS sympathizers who might have been in direct contact with ISIS. What does constitute an “existential threat” in his mind? Climate change of course.
Climate change will lead to terrorism, he said. He was at his most delusional, but this is a man who thinks fish are swimming in the streets of Miami.
He told Norah O’Donnell, who interviewed him as the attack went down Wednesday, that “you can’t build a border wall when it comes to carbon emissions or global temperatures or the oceans. We’ve got to make sure that people have incentives to work with us.”
The incentives of course are our tax dollars and submission to global governance over the climate.
“What I mean by that is that we’re going to get ISIL. They will be defeated. There will be ongoing efforts to disrupt the world order from terrorists, from rogue states, from cyber-attacks. There’s always some bad people out there trying to do bad things and we have to be vigilant in going after them,” he said in way of minimizing terror attacks.
He continued. “But if you start seeing the oceans rise by five, six, seven feet, if you see major shifts in weather patterns so that what had previously been bread baskets to the world unable to grow food, then you’re seeing the kind of crisis that we can’t deal with through the deployment of the marines. We can’t deal with it through throwing money at it. What we know is that as human beings are placed under strain, then bad things happen. And if you look at world history, whenever people are desperate, when people start lacking food, when people are not able to make a living or take care of their families, that’s when ideologies arise that are dangerous.”
Barack Obama said the climate treaty in Paris is a non-legally binding agreement but China will follow through because every country will be subject to some kind of reporting requirement that will be reviewed every five years. He keeps bringing up China agreeing to the plan, but they agreed to start in 2030.
As I said, delusional.
