Obama Administration Baffled by Laws of Cause and Effect

The Obama Regime confesses itself baffled that their limp response to Islamist violence and their threats to impose gun control are driving Americans to buy moar guns.

[Obama Press Secretary Josh] Earnest indicated that he does not know why the American people are so drawn to guns, but he said it is “tragic” that people go out and purchase them in response to incidents like the San Bernardino attack.

“The more that we see this kind of violence on our streets, the more people go out and buy guns. That is both ironic and tragic.”

No, buying guns in response to violence and threats of gun control is not ironic, sir. Your surname is ironic.

This is of a piece with the Dinesh D’Souza story from Saturday. Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro was invited to give a talk at a high school in California. About mid-way into the talk, one of the schools educrats cut off his speech and dismissed students because Shapiro had said something so outrageous that it “crossed the line” of acceptable discourse.

What did he say? He said that a lot of times, poor people are poor because they make bad financial choices.

I am not making this up.

“The reason people are permanently poor in the United States,” Shapiro said, “isn’t because they don’t have money, it’s because they suck with money. The reasons people are temporarily poor can vary.” As a rumble ran through the crowd, Shapiro continued, “That’s not even controversial. If you’re permanently poor [in America] for your entire life, you’re not great with money by definition…”

That’s when Nafarrete stepped in and dismissed the students.

As they left, Shapiro told Breitbart News, Nafarrete stated that he had to let the students go in order to “protect” their feelings, since many came from low-income homes.

Not to mention, teaching people that they, and not the Government, are responsible for their own economic security is Blasphemy Against the Progressive State.

Obama’s Best and Brightest

The Obama Administration sent its “Resident Expert” on refugee screening to answer questions before Congress,  Dept. of Homeland Security Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination, Kelli Ann Burriesci. You kind of expect a “Resident Expert” to know their job well enough to answer basic questions about it. Like, if you were a delivery driver for FedEx and somebody asked how many deliveries you made every day or how many miles you drove, you would be able to answer that. And if you couldn’t, people might think you’re an idiot.  Especially if you knew in advance you were going to be asked questions about your job.

Anyway, here’s how the Obama Administration’s “Resident Expert on Refugee Screening” answered some questions about her area of expertise. (Hat Tip: Patterico)

How many Syrian refugees have entered the U.S. in the last year” Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) asked Burriesci.

“Sorry, I didn’t bring any of the refugee numbers with me,” she responded.

Jordon then asked: “Do you know how many Americans have traveled to Syria in the last year?”

“I don’t have that number on me either,” the official responded.

“So you wouldn’t know how many Americans have traveled there and returned?” Jordan pressed.

“I don’t have that number on me,” Burriesci stated.

When asked by Jordan, “How many visa waiver program overstays are there currently in the U.S.,” Burriesci again responded that she does not “have information” on that subject.

The lack of answers led to frustration.

“We’re talking about the refugee issue and the Visa Waiver Program issue and you can’t give us numbers on either program?” Jordan asked.

Sadly, this level of incompetence is par for the course in the Obama Administration.
