President Barack Obama met with leaders of CENTCOM and AFRICOM at the Pentagon prior to their appearances on Capitol Hill regarding a strategy to combat ISIS. While the Obama Administration still has not detailed a plan to defeat ISIS/ISIL/DAESH, but the so called Leader of the Free World still had some thoughts on the threat of violent extremism.
So apparently, one whackadoodle who killed nine churchgoers in Charleston provides cover of equivocation for the numerous attacks inspired by proclaimed adherents of “The Religion of Peace” (or Pieces).
Surely, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin should have realized that it was better ideas and not force which defeats ideologies.
Can we solve the puzzle now Pat or must we wait until November, 2016?

Longshot 2016 Democrat Presidential hopeful Former Governor Martin O’Malley (D-MD) used the atrocity of nine people being shot at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina as an opportunity to sound hip, fund-raise off the the tragedy and pitch his pet issues.
Soon after the shootings in South Carolina, the O’Malley campaign released an email denouncing the NRA, touting O’Malley’s “F” rating with the Second Amendment organization, while asking for”support” to fight for gun control as well as his fledgling campaign.
O’Malley’s rhetoric repeatedly used the colloquial phrase “I’m pissed”. That does not sound presidential but then again President Obama used the “N” word when granting an interview to WTF podcasts, so perhaps deviancy has been defined downward. Nonetheless, it seems garish to push for more gun control before the dead have been laid to rest. But as Rahm Emmanuel posited don’t let a crisis go to waste.
When speaking before a crowd in Iowa, GOP 2016 presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson offered a modest proposal the curb the bureaucratic bungling in the District of Calamity (sic).
This populist point plays well on the hustings as it expresses the hoil polloi frustration with the size, scope, inefficiency and intrusiveness of the Federal government. It does not serve well as a political plank. This further confirms Dr. Carson’s self proclaimed status of not being a typical politician.
