All we need is love to defeat ISIS (and baldness)

We have been sedated, duped and deceived.

Who ever imagined it could be so easy?

But it is, according to our attorney general Loretta Lynch who, through the UN, once threatened to prosecute any American speaking unkindly against Islam. This time, only a few days ago, addressing Obama’s fan club, the news media, she announced that the only response to ISIS and Radical Islam is LOVE.

In her own words: “Our most effective response to terrorism is compassion; it’s unity and it’s love.”

This came too late for the 49 Americans in Orlando who were murdered by a man who swore allegiance to ISIS, and in the name of Allah.

We can’t help wondering what Ms. Lynch is talking about. Are we on the same planet? Or is she talking about a galaxy far away?

She must have some utopia in mind and if she knows where it is, please, she must clue us in right away before it’s too late.

Because right here on earth, where angels fear to tread, the message of love isn’t getting across – at least not to the right people.

Who are these people running our country? Do they think we’re stupid? Well, yes. Absolutely.
At the moment, not counting ISIS, there are an estimated 62 hot wars in progress where we might find Tina Turner singing, “What’s love got to do with it?”

Who are these people running our country? Do they think we’re stupid? Well, yes. Absolutely.

Turn the page to a couple of years ago and listen to Obama adviser Jonathan Gruber reveal how Obama’s healthcare law was passed: "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage, and basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”

More recently, listen to another Obama adviser, Ben Rhodes, explain how the Iran Nuke Deal was sneaked through, by hoodwinking the press. “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years-old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns.”

He added: “They literally know nothing.”

He means the rest of us, too. The entire administration thinks we’re fools – and maybe we are, given that we keep voting for these people.

Hillary is only waiting her turn to snooker us with her own bagful of slogans and lies.

“Love” is what you tell children who get to scuffling in the schoolyard. “Compassion” is not a sale for the headhunters of Radical Islam who have declared war upon the entire universe. Bumper stickers won’t make them stop. Lullabies won’t put them to sleep.

No, we are the ones who have been sedated, soothed, tranquilized and duped into swallowing every pill of deception.

Ms. Lynch’s message is fit for people suffering “the heartbreak of psoriasis,” or for men hurt by the pain of baldness.

Only Fox News had the chutzpah to ask her why her office tried to cover-up the fact that the Orlando killer was a radicalized Muslim.

After the “love and compassion” mumbo jumbo, she went ahead and averred that nothing means more to her than “transparency.” Huh?

Turning truth on its head and speaking down to us as if we are a nation of dunces – that’s how it’s been for the past seven and a half years.

For all that time we’ve been the victims of a con. Can we last the next seven months?
