In a recent discussion from not too long ago, Dan assured us that Barry Obumble has made us safer. While that's a laughable suggestion on its face, given the rise in terrorist activity here and abroad, I just saw this article that proves just how ludicrous the claim is. While the article speaks specifically about the Democratic-led city of Chicago (led by former Obama co-hort Rahm Emanuel), it contains this gem as well:
"According to this FBI report, violent crime in the U.S. increased a little more than five percent the first half of last year." (2016)
Chicago, and two suburban cities, Elgin and Joliet, saw much larger increases in violent crime.
The claim, therefore, that Obama somehow made us safer is not supported by law enforcement.
What's more, despite Obama's claim that no terrorist organization has attacked our nation during his administration, that's a hollow victory to say the least, given the several so-called "lone wolf" attacks, such as the Boston Marathon Bombers, the San Bernardino shootings and various other examples of islamist inspired murders.
Chicago just hosted Obama's farewell address before adoring chumps to whom he could say anything and be believed as if he spoke the truth. This article provides us with this morsel for our consumption:
"A few hours prior to the event and while people were arriving there was a carjacking and holdup involving a gun not too far from the venue."
And several miles from the Obamas' Chicago home, police reported two bodies found in a vacant South Side building."
Yeah. He's made us so much safer. I don't know how a 5% rise in violent crime translates into a safer nation.
