From the July 25 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Talking Points is in business to put forth the truth, so here it is. According to an average of polling by Real Clear Politics, 69 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction of their country. Just 23 percent are pleased with the present condition of the USA.
That is a direct repudiation of President Obama's point of view, because, if we're all safer as he says, and the economy is fine, why would the folks feel the country is on the wrong track? Why?
On the foreign front, President Obama's decision to pull all US troops out of Iraq directly led to the rise in ISIS. The president's failure to attack ISIS on the ground has allowed the savages to expand their influence.
Mr. Obama's failure to destroy Assad's air force in Syria, when he could have, after drawing that red line over poison gas, has directly led to millions of refugees storming into Europe. That crisis has profoundly damaged the region and perhaps even stimulated Great Britain leaving the European Union. President Obama's failure to confront Putin in Russia has directly led to chaos in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
The Iranian nuke deal has increased the power of the mullahs in the Middle East. The Libyan debacle has given ISIS a foothold in that country. The Chinese are expanding in Southeast Asia. Afghanistan is a sanctuary not only for the Taliban, but also for ISIS terrorists who killed 80 people over the weekend in Kabul.
The list goes on. Back home, race relations are worse than at any time since the 1960's, in some areas police and young black men even fear for their lives. The far left has run wild under President Obama selling a narrative that America is a bad country, an evil country, dominated by white supremacy.
Drug use is skyrocketing. Even as the Obama administration puts forth that criminals who sell poison like heroin, meth, and cocaine are nonviolent, and deserve leniency. Political correctness destroying free speech, and giving power to the charletans who are clogging the court system with frivolous lawsuits.
Again, Talking Points could go on for hours. So Donald Trump may be terrifying voters with his rhetoric as the New York Times says, but his warnings are based in reality, are they not?
