Obama tells Coast Guard: Climate change helped cause Islamic terrorism

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

President Obama just gave the commencement address to the graduating class of the Coast Guard academy.

He said the leading threat facing America and the world today isn't Islamic terrorism -- it's climate change.

To be specific, Obama says climate change contributed to the rise of Boko Haram and similar groups that are committing atrocities across the globe.

Here's one problem with that:

There's a drought in California right now, but it hasn't led to terrorism.

Obama goes on to make claims about the costs and dangers of rising sea levels, so I take apart his facts and numbers on that front, too.

The man is certifiably insane, …and evil.
There has been NO warming at all in the past 18 years!
Blaming any kind of terrorism on non-existent warming is like blaming the North Pole for the Soviet slaughter of 70 million people under Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin. All officially atheist regimes.
I’m so sick of hearing the global warming baloney. The people writing that stuff must think that the whole world is as gullible and stupid as they are.

It’s just like listening to the Truedope. Both utter idiots!

I hope I’m wrong: Obama is a traitor like Quizling. I know “can you prove it?” Or else he’s a naive welcome in everybody, Hawaiian tourist guide or likes being famous. Mark Levin says it best in his articles. What more damage can he do to the continent North America? It’s border security? It’s everything? Obama is Not a North American in blood, body and soul.

Can a sitting president be or say anything more stupid!!! Then what he said.

The ignorance of the man is truly breath-taking. He is unable and unwilling to separate his personal agenda from what would be best for his country. The most shocking thing is that this stupid and dangerous man is the alleged leader of the western world.
Sort of makes you long for the days of G.W. doesn’t it.

I’m gonna put my tinfoil helmet on here. I bet he would have no problem allowing a pipeline to bring water from northern Canada into the southern states. I swear as I have for years that the U.S. Will invade us for our water eventually

He could claim that the earth is flat and his obedient lemming masses would collectively nod their heads in agreement and start looking for the edge in preperation to jump off when ordered.
It is horrifying to think that this snake oil salesman can say the most nonsensical things and relatively intelligent humans buy it without reservation. When are Americans going to wake up.

Apart from linking ‘climate change’ to Islamic terrorism, even more bizarre is his telling the graduating class that denying (disbelieving) the story that climate change is the planet-ending, man-made disaster, a story (fairy tale) that the ‘progressives’ have been telling for the last 20 years, is a “dereliction of duty"!

Donald Allen, " Obama is nothing more than the reincarnation of a high priest of the Incas or some Polynesian culture , or the sanctimonius judges of Salem preying on the emotions and ignorance of the masses."
Pretty much.

Obama – I would not wish this man as a neighbour on anyone that I liked and respected – a truly bad person – bone deep bad.

According to Fox News, Homeland Security is spending millions more on the threat of Global warming then they are on terrorism, shows you where Obama has his piorities and it certainly isn’t in protecting his country.

As a Muslim, Barak Obama should know that it was the prophet Mohammed who caused Islamic terrorists when he set the example by raiding caravans, looting, killing and capturing those who did not believe in his religion. The fact that 20% of his writings ordered his followers to do the same made the problem worse. Then the fact that the more violent sections of the prophet’s writings, the Koran, cancel out or abrogate, the more peaceful writings which were written earlier in the life of Mohammed compounds the problem.

Well, he did say, “I believe…” which means he does so in spite of lack of proof. It is painful to listen to the man; as it is to listen to our own “climate change” advocate here. October is looming and for us, a crucial decision. Can you imagine 5 years of such rhetoric?

Well when things went bad with the weather like draughts or tornadoes and typhoons and the resulting famines or destruction , ancient cultures used to gather up young virgins and toss them into volcanoes or into deep chasms in the earth to make the Gods happy . In more recent history , there were no volcanoes in Salem so locals faced with climate change during that era were forced to create less dramatic means of appeasing a diety or dieties by way of identifying witches and burning them at the stake. And so it continues today. Obama is nothing more than the reincarnation of a high priest of the Incas or some Polynesian culture , or the sanctimonius judges of Salem preying on the emotions and ignorance of the masses. Today we don’t throw virgins into flaming volcanoes. We just shut down coal plants throwing thousands out of meaningful work. But we give them manna from heaven (food stamps) and our future generations will thank us for reducing the CO2 levels in the atmosphere.

“I chose a Jeep rather than a Prius and only taxation can atone for that sin is a bit of a stretch. " G C. What about the lefties circling the globe in their jets, Hummers and Yachts? Your Jeep is, however, not known for stability…watch those curves…

Severe Islam causes these problems…nothing else…Political drought is causing madness in Americans too…in the U.S.A. they need ‘abundance of Republican rain’…but I think Obama’s point is that with all the sea levels rising we will really need more Coast Guard cadets :) KIDDING!

But…IS IT drought OR too high water levels? Good argument he has that speaks out of both sides of the mouth…if it gets too dry that will cause conflict, but if it gets too wet that will cause conflict…I get it! Or if it gets too wet-dry that will cause conflict…pretty good reasoning for a Democrat.

Israel makes drinking water out of the ocean now for pennies a litre and they live in the desert…so drought is a political creation, not from climate change. Has anyone realized that we are all drinking the same water that has been here from the beginning of the Earth? Talk about natural recycling…yup…you are drinking the recycled urine of millions of creatures…nice thought,eh ?

Obama is a well groomed indoctrinated Supreme Useful Idiot. There are far too many like him in our midst and across the globe.
I never miss a chance to challenge the propaganda and actively persuade people I come across who they should vote for. Many people are tuned out of politics and are dozing while all the insanity around them takes hold.. I find that humor helps . Ridiculous ideas, dangerous ideas,are less scary when laughed at and given no credence.

You’re right Bill. Three inches would flood most coastlines

The drought in Nigeria was caused by poor farming practices. Nothing else. When local politicians parcel off land to incompetent neophytes, that is what happens. As for the rising sea levels, that is just absolutely false. Nine inches, as fearless leader stated, would have buried millions of square miles of land under water, which has not happened.

Peter nothing ever changes it seems. I am just reading the previous progressive in chief’s memoirs and in every chapter he is out on the golf course. Mr. excessive too. Holiday here, holiday there, holiday everywhere. He set the stage for the current waster. And soon his wife will be crowned. Not looking good out there.

He keeps on about how we need to cut back, yet he has no problem with pumping fresh water into a desert to irrigate friggin GOLF COURSES
commented 2015-05-22 10:23:38 -0400
I’m presuming Obama’s aggressive pro abortion is related to his climate change agenda because he thinks humans are the major cause of global warming, more people, more polluters (also mistakenly equating climate change with pollution). He said he was going to bring about change. What he didn’t tell people was that it was a change for the worse! I find it troubling so many people are still voting Liberal/Democrat because they (Democrats) all follow the same party line in lock step with Obama, in my view. He’s not only insane as was Hitler and all the other major dictators, in my opinion he’s just as evil.

The number one problem in the World today is Obama. Under his leadership we have:-
1. A virtual race war in the USA
2. The religion or love and peace gone moggy
3. More Americans not even bothering to look for jobs at home
4. Capitalism and globalization gone wild
5. Iran about to go nuclear
6. Illegal immigration causing untold hardships domestically
7. His Trans Pacific Free Trade Agreement about to cause more chaos

And the list goes on

He is the enemy. People were warned, and yet they were ignorant enough to vote TWICE for him.
History is repeating itself, and we will pay for it.

ISIS caused by global warming. I’m fat, caused by global warming. I’m bald, again, global warming. My back, my knees, my eye sight and high blood pressure, all caused by global warming. And some of you still insist global warming is a myth. Have you ever had anything go terrible wrong? Whatever it was, it was caused by global warming.

I often think about how different the global situation would look, had it not been led and inflamed by that maniac. He is clearly as mad as a hatter!
