No Known Threat. Also, No Confidence

Today President Obama announced to the nation, “Right now, we know of no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.” I suppose that’s better than announcing that American intelligence was aware of such a plot. But the reason why the president felt compelled to make such an anodyne pronouncement had more to do with what’s wrong with public perceptions about U.S. security than about what is right.

    Easy to say you don’t see any threats when you are surrounded by armed Secret Service men while you sign in an executive order trying to disarm the populace.

      He also rants about Climate Change while his 747 uses 40,000 liters of jet fuel to fly of and play golf in vegas while his wife and Mother inlaw fly off to another spot to vacation.
      Al Gore and Saint Suzuki have a total of 9 houses pumping carbon while they too fly around the World in Jets .

      The general population on Earth is catching on to this 1960’s ponze scheme by the Liberal leftists and communists.
      Islam sees the opening to exploit the poor and blacks to join the death-cult sect of islam now growing each day thanks to Imam Obama.

      Hell send them to all the empty cities that China built. That would give their unemployed something to do by building wall around said cities.

    The “we” in “we know of no specific and credible intelligence” is the royal “we”; ie Obama. Since Obama is directing that intelligence reports be altered to filter out “bad news”, it allows him to make these “plausible deniability” statements. There are people in the intelligence apparatus who DO KNOW of specific and credible threats, but they are not allowed to pass that information along to the Muslim in Chief.
