Jindal For President - OBAMA ONLY PERSON IN FREE WORLD WHO WON ’T NAME RADICAL ISLAM 

Jindal for President

 

BATON ROUGE -- Today, Governor Jindal released the following statement after Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron called out radical Islam and identified it as a threat that needs to be confronted and exposed. You can read the text of the Prime Minister's speech here.

Governor Jindal said, "Today Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron had the courage to say what President Obama will not, when he said that “We need to confront and expose Islamist extremism as a belief system that glorifies violence & subjugates people.”

"So that leaves President Obama as pretty much the only person in the free world who refuses to speak the truth about Radical Islam.

"Our President’s political correctness and fear of speaking the truth is no longer amusing, it is just plain dangerous, because you cannot defeat an enemy you refuse to name.

"President Obama cannot claim to be working with our allies when he refuses to join them in naming our common enemy. He has proven himself incapable as Commander in Chief.

"Importantly, Prime Minister David Cameron also rejected the notion that radicalization is caused by “poverty and hardship”.  He said that the “root cause of the threat we face is the extremist ideology itself”. He warned Britain’s mainstream Muslims to stop “quietly condoning” ISIS.

"Yet President Obama refuses to do the same: he refused to call the Chattanooga shooting an act of Radical Islamic terrorism and he refuses to demand that Muslim leaders help tackle the problem. Just who is it that the President is afraid of offending here?

"This is one case where President Obama should lead from behind - he should follow the lead of our British ally, name the enemy and resolve to destroy Radical Islam."

Perry For President - Statement on President Obama Taking Iran Nuclear Deal to UN 

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s move to take the Iran nuclear deal to the United Nations Security Council before Congress has a chance to review it:

“When it comes to his Iran deal, President Obama appears to believe that the approval of the United Nations is more important than the approval of Congress or the American people. Now that the UN Security Council has approved the deal, our system of extensive, multilateral sanctions on Iran will unravel.

Even if Congress can muster a veto-proof majority to reject this deal, it now cannot stop the process of loosening international sanctions, and the next president will be faced with an enormous challenge to re-build an international cooperative effort of the same magnitude. As the deal reads, even if the United States considers imposing/re-imposing sanctions on Iran for any reason, Iran will have a pathway to exit the agreement, escape limitations on its nuclear program, and dash towards a bomb. These kind of problematic provisions that handicap future policy options for the president and Congress stand as the primary reason for full Congressional review.

The president and Secretary Kerry have now fully traded not only the legal right of Congressional examination, but also the long-term peace and stability of the Middle East in favor of a naïve diplomatic ‘victory'.”

Perry For President - Statement by Gov. Perry on President Obama's Lack of Strategy to Counter ISIS 

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement in response to reports the U.S. is training a stunningly low amount of Syrian rebel fighters to battle ISIS:


"Ten months ago, President Obama told the American people he would degrade and destroy ISIS. At the time, I questioned his conception of what the U.S. military’s role should be in this fight, and whether he had matched ends and means.  It is now clear that the president has not even fully implemented his own strategy. ISIS is no longer just a terrorist group seeking to disrupt peace and stability. It is a terrorist army that is intent on holding the ground it has captured, and establishing a long term Caliphate that inspires thousands of followers abroad. President Obama’s strategy to degrade and destroy ISIS should treat it as such."

Jindal For President - Jindal Blasts Obama For Claiming ISIS Can Be Defeated With Ideas, Not Guns 

Jindal for President

MANCHESTER, NH – In a statement this morning, Governor Jindal blasted President Obama for not having a strategy to defeat ISIS and for saying "ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas.”

Governor Jindal said, “President Obama is the most clueless president of my lifetime. President Obama actually suggested you can talk about ‘ideas’ with terrorists who execute those who don’t agree with them.

“It is astonishing to hear President Obama say that ISIS won’t be defeated by guns, rather by changing ‘hearts and minds.’ Well, Mr. President, guns help.

“President Obama won’t call a spade a spade, which is why he has no strategy to defeat ISIS. The result is that his new timeline to defeat ISIS is a generation. This is not acceptable. The United States needs a president who will identify our enemy and rid the world of them and their ideas.”
