Susan Rice: Climate change, gay rights part of  US national security strategy

The Middle East is disintegrating under a tide of terrorism led by the Islamic State, requiring an immediate national security response from the Obama administration. And it has met the call with its usual aplomb.

Heading the White House’s priority list is a commitment to fight “the very real threat of climate change” and promote gay rights, National Security Advisor Susan Rice told a gathering at the Brookings Institute Friday, according to CNS News.

It sounds as though the White House is suffering from another case of disengagement syndrome.

Although Rice conceded that America has to be committed to “countering the corrosive ideology of violent extremism,” she said any action must be tempered by a “sense of perspective.”

“Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature we confronted during World War II or during the Cold War,” Rice said. “We cannot afford to be buffeted by alarmism in a nearly instantaneous news cycle.”

Alarmism? Islamic State terrorists are stoning women, crucifying children, beheading men and setting Jordanian pilots afire, and America’s national security advisor doesn’t think that’s alarming?

“American leadership is addressing the very real threat of climate change,” Rice said. “The science is clear. The impacts of climate change will only worsen over time — even longer droughts, more severe storms, more forced migration. So we’re making smart decisions today that will pay off for generations.”

Clearly, racial, gender and LGBT equality has somehow found its way into the mix of America’s national security response. ISIS terrorists must be quaking in their boots.

    ISIS is the threat that Europe experienced prior to WWII. Hitler marched across Europe with the same thing in mind that ISIS is doing now. Are we to sit aside and await more attacks on our soil while our Allies are ripped to shreds by beheadings, crucifixions, enslavement and burying alive is continued unchecked? We are asking, as it is now, to have the militants of Islam to attack. We have the opportunity and the resources to stop ISIS before it escalates any more. Will Obama stand up? Doubtful, very doubtful.

    I would be worried about Capital controls, collapsing economy and a U S dollar that is about to be crushed . These clowns are despicable!

    “As you all know, Benghazi was not a terrorist attack, it was a reaction to a video, so we’ll do the same: we will asume that the beheadings and the burning of the Jordanian pilot were just videos. Nothing to be alarmed folks. Remember, these are Barack’s buddies just like the Brotherhood Bros that just had dinner with us at the White House. Happy happy, don’t panic. Now let’s go into serious National Security matters, so let’s talk about gay marriage” . Signed, Susy

    Susan Rice , National Security Advisor? Is this the same Moron that was saying over and over again Benghazi was due to a video about Pedophile Muhammad that hardly anyone had ever seen? Forget about Global Warming better be concerned about White House Warming Imbeciles. Don’t you all feel so Safe and Secure knowing we have idiots running Our Country?

    Ah Susan Rice of Benghazi fame. Why should we believe you, of all people??

    Taking what Rice said at face value:

    To Counter Climate change we hand out billions in grant to Obama’s major contributors so they can fund projects that don’t work and go bankrupt..

    Since homosexual rights are so important to the security of our country, we’ll use the National Sex Education Standards to justify giving out “How to preform homosexual sex act manuals” to every third grader in the country..

    On Immigration, better defined as invasion by mass migration, the plan is to simply surrender to the invaders.

    Meantime Islamic State continues to get 100’s of new volunteers daily and Putin’s long range nuclear bombers are routinely probing our defenses– but those are minor issues…

    Welcome to Barry’s Bizzaro World.

    I have it figured out, the American rocket scientists are going to destroy ices with a weather forecast, finally I see the light. Wow and I was worried. While I’m at it I’m glad to see the head muslim entertaining the muslim brotherhood in the house I pay for. This scumbag then turns his back on Americas only true friend in the Middle East.

    I’m not aware of a single man-made global-warming prophecy that the climate fortune-tellers have gotten correct.
