Before Obama there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America. All of a sudden Islam is taught in schools. All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in school, airports and businesses. All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons. All of a sudden we are inundated with lawsuits by Muslims who are offended by American culture. All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them. All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law. All of a sudden the attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in “anti-Muslim speech.” All of the sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam or ISIS are emphatically declared they are onto Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined not to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like “Workplace Violence.” All of a sudden it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood. All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iran and the middle East, giving rise to ISIS. All of a sudden America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama’s stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted. All of a sudden a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and hundreds of billions of dollars handed over to fund their programs. All of a sudden America apologizes to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war and sabotage they perpetrate against our soldiers. All of a sudden the American Navy is diminished to 1917 pre-World War I levels of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further draw down of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress. All of a sudden half of tour aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, none are in the Middle East. All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility. All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade five Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer. All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama’s “Syrian refugee” resettlement programs. All of a sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA. All of a sudden the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American citizens. All of a sudden the president of the United States can not attend the Christian Funeral of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous seemingly unimportant commitments.

“By his fruits you will know him.”

All of a sudden, I am sick to my stomach. Hard to believe he was elected twice, isn’t it? Sleep well America. RIP
