Obama and Islamic terrorism

*Says Hillary Clinton's Russian Counterpart, to whom 
she presented the magic "Reset" button, if you recall.

Newsmax  "President Barack Obama on Sunday said Americans would stand united and "not give in to fear or turn against each other" in the wake of a nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, that killed 50 people.

"Following is the full text of remarks, Obama delivered at the White House:

"Today, as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder - a horrific massacre - of dozens of innocent people. We pray for their families, who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. We stand with the people of Orlando, who have endured a terrible attack on their city. Although it's still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. And as Americans, we are united in grief, in outrage, and in resolve to defend our people." . . .

*Obama: 'No Definitive Judgment on the Precise Motivations' of Orlando Terrorist

. . . " 'We are still learning all the facts. . . . "Over the coming days, we’ll uncover why and how this happened, and we will go wherever the facts lead us.' " . . .

John Podhoretz: Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre   . . . "So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
"That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it."   . . . 
. . . "It’s the change required by the 22nd Amendment — the change that will compel Barack Obama to leave the White House on January 20, 2017 after completing his second term with America less safe than it was when he took office."

Trump to Change Speech from Clintons to Terrorism, Calls on Obama to Resign  . . . "Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen – and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can't afford to be politically correct anymore.' "

Obama blames 'hate’ not Islam or Jihad for Orlando nightclub massacre  There was no mention whatsoever of Islam, radical Islam, or jihad. It was purely an “act of hate” of no particular character. His statement on motivations contained lawyerly qualifications enabling him to obscure the fact that the killer shouted “Allahu Akbar     !” (“Allah is supreme!”) as he murdered. Watch at about a minute into his statement as he said,
“We have reached no definitive judgments on the precise motivations of the killer. “
Mr Obama made further reference to hate crimes, describing the gay bars as not just a night club, but an "area of solidarity and promotion of civil rights." . . .
. . . "The President also made his standard pitch regarding the easy availability of 'assault weapons." It's important to note, the shooter, had a firearms license as he worked for a security company...which means he had to undergo an extensive background check." . . .
