Obama Lectures Coast Guard Graduates on Climate Change
On the same day that ISIS secured a shocking victory in Iraq, President Obama told the Coast Guard Academy’s graduating class that climate change was still the single greatest threat to the nation.
“Climate change will impact every country on the planet,” Obama said as the Islamic State claimed the city of Ramadi. “No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country.”
He’s actually right about that last point, if indirectly. Climate change will have a significant effect on how the military operates because Obama will make it so. We have a commander-in-chief who is more concerned about the weather than with a strong system of national defense. Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee was roundly criticized for recommending that young men and women wait until Obama left office before joining the armed forces, but this speech shows why he’s right. Who would want to go to battle under the leadership of a man this blind to the realities of the world?
“Severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram,” Obama said. “It’s now believed that drought, crop failures, and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East.”
Are you kidding? Obama must still be smoking weed, because this is the kind of ridiculous theory that can only be traced back to a good rip on the bong. This president will blame anything and anyone for Islamic terrorism if it means he doesn’t have to blame the religion itself. Lack of employment, the CIA’s torture program, George W. Bush, American arrogance, global warming…the only thing that can’t be blamed is Islam.
Obama went on to insist that anyone who failed to take action against climate change was guilty of “negligence” and was in “dereliction of duty.” Those should certainly be familiar terms to this president, as he has been rightfully accused of both over the last six years of his disastrous presidential tenure. A list of his blunders would fill a decent-sized library, and it will take an extraordinary effort on the part of his successor just to fix all of the mistakes. If we make the tragic error of replacing him with someone who believes all the same stuff, i.e. Hillary Clinton, then we may find ourselves in waters so treacherous that there is no return.
Obama has a lot on his plate right now as it pertains to national security. The border is unsecured, Iraq and Syria are falling to ISIS, Iran is getting ready to demonstrate how foolish we were to enter into a bargaining agreement with them, and our best allies in the region look at our president with extraordinary mistrust. And yet, with all of these things hanging in the air, Obama thinks the biggest threat facing the nation is climate change.
Is it too late to start the impeachment process?
