Obama to deliver rare Oval Office address Sunday on terror threat

The Hill

President Obama will discuss the San Bernardino, Calif., shootings and the broader threat of terrorism on Sunday night in a rare prime time address from the Oval Office.

The address at 8 p.m. will hit on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) and how the terror threat has “evolved, and how we will defeat it,” according to the White House.

“He will reiterate his firm conviction that ISIL will be destroyed and that the United States must draw upon our values – our unwavering commitment to justice, equality and freedom – to prevail over terrorist groups that use violence to advance a destructive ideology,” the White House said in a statement Saturday night.

It is rare for the president to give a prime-time speech from the Oval Office, with Obama preferring instead to address the nation from the East Room.

He has made only two formal addresses from the Oval Office during his presidency, with the last one coming in 2010 to mark the end of combat troops in Iraq.

Hmmm…Doubt Bo-Bo will talk about the support and aid the US has provided to ISIS and ISIS-related groups during the part about how it has evolved. I suspect we will hear less about the terror threat and more about how gun owning Americans are the true problem in the US. – OP

    The address is due to mounting pressure as BHO was completely absent in support of the SanBern Islamic Jihad Terrorists. As the climate of the situation rose, Americans were fixing to remedy the situation once and for all, which caused the USAG to make the blunder of threatening prosecution in violation of first amendment rights. Of the considerations, many college people, many Muslims, and the New Black Panther Party, openly advocate murder though none are brought up for prosecution as USDOJ acknowledges free speech, despite its abraiveness. The number of online anti-Muslim commentaries numbers in the Millions. Dragging that many into court would clog the system eternally. It would also mean that elected officials and political appointees are no longer valid in their office or position. Actually, it could cause shots to be fired as people fearing prosecution, in anxiety or rage, take matters into their own hands. Obama said on the news interview last evening that he “supposes” or “there might be” a terror connection. He’s not sold or, the reluctance to call his brethren what they are, reveals the depth of his Muslim Brotherhood vows, and those vows, are directed against the entire Western world, America, Africa, Asia, the whole planet. Obama remains a Muslim extremeist and a danger to America, which leads me to wonder, why hasn’t congress removed him. It’s not the Kool-Aid, it’s about money that congressional members take and stuff into their pockets. All of them.
    Any talk of gun control in tonight’s presidential address will spur many bad things and only inflame matters to another point where fingers will again, be on triggers. The president is a damned disgrace to the office of the president. Nothing but trouble ever came from Obama.
