Obama condemns Paris terror attacks

Brian LilleyArchive

American President Barack Obama said his thoughts and prayers and those of the American people were with the people of France on Friday as he reacted to news of the terrorist attacks in Paris. 

President Obama called the coordinated attacks “an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians.”

“We want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism,” Obama said.

“The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness. We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of Liberté, égalitéfraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about, but they are the values that we share.”


Speaking as events were still unfolding and hostages were still being held, Obama said he did not want to speculate on who may be responsible for the attacks but said the American government stands ready to offer any assistance the French government may need.


Obama said that he had been speaking with French President Francois Hollande earlier in the day in preparation for the G-20 meetings but that he had chosen not to reach out at what is surely a busy time for Hollande.

Disregard – they seem to have put it back up – go figure

Please go to the Star and see if it is there – I reposed it – like it if you can

I posted this on the Star:

They removed it

This is a truthful response to the article and I will be curious to see if it stays – the last one was removed.

If Sajjan is a true military man – to quote cbc and ctv – a badass – a hero – and all the things the media made up about him – he knows the dangers and would be doing his best to stop this insanity of importing the Syrians.

And if he fails as an officer who took the oath with NO EXPIRATION DATE – he should go public. THAT would make me respect him.

I think/know he is reveling in his new found power and will do nothing of the sort – proving to me he was not much of a military officer and he is not much of a Canadian. He KNOWS!

He will do nothing. That def min position is TOO nice!

He IS ex military – and if he was an officer of ANY capability – he KNOWS!

Not going to do a thing.

Which in the end will indeed prove my point. If he does – I will publicly take this all back.



You just watch and see.

Obama forgot to say Allah Akbar at the end of his pretense.

Bravo Zulu, I was never a fan of Mick Jagger but to suggest that his Son is our PM, this could never be, Justins mouth is to big.

Do you suppose that could be part of the genetic influence from his dippy mother?

Liza got that right, he looks like he hated even acknowledging what happened. Even he realizes how hollow hos words are now.
commented 2015-11-14 11:32:42 -0500
I don’t know why Obama even bothers, nobody looks to him for leadership or guidance. He is irrelevant. His words are hollow and meaningless. Trudeau boy said exactly the same thing. “we are poised to help France in any way…..” so what big deal who cares.
Obama says this is an attack on all humanity. This is an attack on the west and western values (western values are not universal) by those who hate the west. The Islamists were clear, they are coming for America next. Obama is a sad and pathetic joke. Like Europe gives a sht what he has to say anymore regarding the threat that is ISIS. Like anyone cares what that traitor has to say.

BLAH BLAH BLAH I’ve heard it all before

Kyla, I’ve never been a big fan of France’s policies either, but I have a hard time with your “they got what was coming to them” attitude. ISIS didn’t go after the government, once again, they intentionally targeted innocent people to slaughter. When the savages kill your friends or family, will you brush it off as payback because we treated the natives poorly? And as far as the Hutus and the Tootsi, they didn’t need the machetes, they were slaughtering each other with pointed sticks. If you can’t sympathize with France, perhaps you could show some compassion for the innocent people who are, today, finding out they have lost a son or daughter.

Obama doesn’t condemn his Muslim brotherhood and his brother that is apart of it. End of story
commented 2015-11-14 10:08:56 -0500
ROBERT HEWGILL, “Just hours before the attack, Oblowzo said : ISIS Is Not Getting ‘Stronger,’ We Have ‘Contained’ Them”. Contained them ?Stunning how these words follow the same pattern of his election in the fall of 2012. Obama then ran to election victory (Nov. 7, 2012) with claims that al Qaeda was “decimated” and “on the run”.
As per this report on November 1, 2012, just a few days before the U.S. election, “Obama Has Touted Al Qaeda’s Demise 32 Times since Benghazi Attack”:
To protect his narrative and save his election, he concocted the story, aided and abetted by the left-wing media, that was spun by him and others in his administration including Hillary Clinton, that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was due to a lame video about Muhammad’s life! You will never hear the words “Islamic terrorists” or “Muslim terrorists” come out of Obama’s mouth. When are the people going to wake up to the lies and deception?
commented 2015-11-14 08:56:17 -0500
Obama we know who is responsible, Muslim terrorists! Glad you used the word terror a few times. Maybe you can practice “Muslim Terrorist” and the phrase will get easier as you practice. A weak America equals more terror attacks by Muslims spreading Islam.

Diversity – got to love it.

Remember Eurabia media is actually NOT ALLOWED to report many issues as it is considered to be racist and can result in jail terms for reporters and editors – so look to see this news pretty much stifled and stopped within a few days. That is why alternative media is starting to grow wings.

So – think about that when you look around all Canadian media.

Are there any outlets that are actually QUESTIONING our forced diversity by bringing in the trash from the mid east?

I have not seen one main stream media stand up and say we need to be careful – it is all suppressed in Canada as well.

Going to be more violence in Eurabia – much more and possibly sooner than many realize – especially the entitled Canadian.

Justy will protect us

Paris – enrichment through diversity

Canada – soon to be enrichment through enforced diversity.

Mick Jagger’s kid is doing a fine job. (sarc)

I’m sorry, I have a hard time sympathizing with a nation that physically supported a genocide. The French sold the Hutu people of Rawanda machetes, knowing full well, that the Hutu were committing war crimes against the Tootsi(sp)with them. But the French government didn’t care because they were getting paid a good price for the machetes. Not only that, but they hardly put up a fight against nazi Germany, and willingly let their people and others suffer ‘cause of their cowardliness. So as far as I’m concerned, karma’s a bitch.

I knew it was a hutterite plot.

It was probably a master plan by Bush. Everybody knows it couldn’t have anything to do with the Dems and their “hug a terrorist” foreign policy.
commented 2015-11-14 00:51:57 -0500
I’m surprised Obama could even use the word “Terrorism”. Well one thing’s for sure, you can rule out the girl guides & the Shriners Mr. Obama.
commented 2015-11-14 00:39:34 -0500
Thanks for setting them free Obama – more blood on your hands in the name of Allah.
commented 2015-11-14 00:36:20 -0500
Obama said he did not want to speculate on who may be responsible for the attacks and wanted to provide “accurate information”. Could it be the Video?
commented 2015-11-13 23:53:21 -0500
Of course hussein says he condemns the attacks – but inside hussein is cheering loudly.

And Canada will continue to import the masses

And Mick Jagger’s kid will continue as pm to make breathless statements to the world about how Canada id horrified and will search for the root cause of this evil.
commented 2015-11-13 22:39:47 -0500
Yeah like we need to speculate. I will give most people one guess and they will get it right.
