    It's not a new statement. People have been saying this the last three or four years.

    And when you look at certain statistics that people use to make these statements as opposed to the terroristic acts or shootings that Americans tend to focus on to attempt to oppose what is said, then he looks to be correct.

    No one was gunning down cops before Obama. Syria has deteriorated, Obama has had to send troops back into Afghanistan and Iraq. Turkey is in a mess. The idea that the world has never been less violent is not only false but a flat out lie.

    The world is getting better. Globally, crime is down. Poverty is down. Violence is down. War is down. Teen pregnancy is down. More people than ever claim to be Christian. Technology is gradually curing all our material ills.

    Not all is perfect. Western freedom and Christianity is on the decline, and we have RATs who call themselves Republicans but would prefer Hillary to win than Trump. Yeah, cop killing is up. Race relations have gotten worse under Obama. GLTDDFEFH "rights" are used to discriminate against Christians.

    US police fatalities haven’t been this low since the Eisenhower administration

    After the events in Dallas and Baton Rouge over the past few weeks, some people have become convinced that an unadulterated aggression has been unleashed on law enforcement officers in the US. Outlets such as conservative news website Breitbart, as well as some of the far-right’s favorite demagogues, have declared that there is a “war on cops.” This conversation has also dominated much of the rhetoric throughout the Republican National Convention this week. Unsurprisingly, those speechifying on the need to protect law enforcement officers often place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the White House.

    However, much like the claims of a supposedly more unsafe America that have circulated throughout the RNC, the idea that there is a swelling “war on police” buckles under available data. In examining the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s fatality numbers—which combine federal, local, and correctional officers—the total deaths of law enforcement officers over the past few years are at their lowest figures since the Eisenhower administration:

    Talk about a misuse of facts. I suggest you go back and reread what I said.

    Sigh, Did I say there were more or less deaths of cops? Nope. Were all those cops killed because groups were calling for and targeting cops. Nope. The facts do not make your point.

    And it's been a total fabrication every time. Even our own country is a more dangerous place.

    I really believe Obama is insane.

    He didn't say the country. HE said the world.

    "• Terrorism is on the rise, with an almost fivefold increase in fatalities since 9/11, in spite of US-led efforts to combat it in the Middle East and elsewhere around the world. [2014 Global Terrorism Index]

    • 2013 saw a 61% increase in the number of people killed in terrorist attacks. [2014 Global Terrorism Index]

    • In the United States since Sept. 11, terrorist attacks by antigovernment, racist and other nonjihadist extremists have killed nearly twice as many people as those by Islamic jihadists. [New America Index]"

    Obama is insane.

    “I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

    Barack Obama

    Always has been.

    Most diseases have early on symptoms.

    e.g. Globally speaking the Iran, Russia, China, North Korea alliance should send a chill of fear over anyone with understanding of what's coming and IMO it's inevitable.

    https://www.facebook.com/SCOCooperation/

    Our "death wish" administration has ASSURED Iran of having nuclear devices in 10 years or so along with 160 billion dollars to build them (Technology will be assured by the Putin regime).

    Joni Ernst CNN.

    Russia will supply them with "conventional" weapons?

    Does anyone really believe that is all they will supply them with (at the opportune time) whose one time leader Nikita Khrushchev screamed "WE WILL BURY YOU!" ?

    Russia has the largest thermo-nuclear bomb inventory on the face of the earth, the most powerful of which - a 60 megaton thermo-nuclear device which would blow a hole in the earth 32 miles across.

    The strategy - stealth and subterfuge.
    The tactics :

    The American Hiroshima: Iran's Plan for a Nuclear Attack on the United States
    By Hugh Cort

    Here is an expert, please read it carefully

    https://books.google.com/books?id=EFxACkeAkXEC&pg=PT24&lpg=PT24&dq=iran+smuggle+a+bomb+to+america&source=bl&ots=MY2pXgT2MB&sig=iHndMqLXTPyq8vWEmqb6HdLeXc8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiGp9_OhYjOAhUO72MKHYEuCwYQ6AEILzAC#v=onepage&q=iran smuggle a bomb to america&f=false

    This unholy and diseased alliance is a festering boil upon the earth which will erupt within 10 years or sooner - in my opinion of course.

    Gunning down cops isn't violence to Obama, it is getting even. Nero had his fiddle, Obama has his 9 iron.
