Obama’s Iran appeasement; a systematic sacrifice of friends? (Text shared:

20 Mar

Appeasement is not diplomacy!

With a strong mandate, President Obama roared in like a lion in January, but is approaching April as a lamb, a lamb whose words are load and strong, its deeds lack knowledge, conviction, or authority.

President Barak Hussein Obama is a great orator, yet a very weak communicator. Obama does not understand that communication include action, not just words.

Granting his first television interview to an anti-Israel, anti-Jewish news outlet, was a clear demonstration that Obama’s Islamic roots are deeper than he is openly admits; it shows that in his case, blood is indeed thicker than water.

On Christmas Eve, 2008, President Ahmadinejad of Iran arranged for Hamas, by breaking a cease fire, to cause an Israeli attack on Gaza. Attacking on Christmas Eve, the Iranian President demonstrated that he has no respect for Christianity; Ahmadinejad is a koranic person who believes in Islamic world domination, with a complete disregard to any other religion, or human beliefs.  

Obama’s approaching the Iranian people under  Ahmadinejad, and his even more militant superior, Ayatollah Khamenei, is not only a sign of weakness, it is a demonstration that Obama is an opportunist who would do anything, sacrifice friends and allies, in order to get his way.

In the US-Iran conflict, Obama was the first one to blink, he essentially agreed to reduce the long standing US commitment to Israel in order to ease energy concerns, and help the United States economy. By his overtures to Iran, President Obama also sends a signal to Iran that when the US leaves Iraq, it will become fair game for adding it to an Iranian controlled Shiite region.

It is either naivete, or deeply rooted Islamic commitment that seem to drive President Obama to take reckless steps, and throw allies (i.e Wright, Israel, Ayers, etc.) under the bus, when they cease to be useful to him.

Please remember, President Obama, sacrificing old friends to advance new causes is a sure way to self-distraction.

Obama: Time to stop campaigning and start governing! A Turkey visit should wait.

9 Mar

Except for public opinion, the Obama Administration seems determined to accommodate Rush Limbaugh and fail. It may be good for the man’s ego to travel all over the country and be applauded and cheered, but it is time for President Obama to stay put and make sure day-to-day problems are dealt with.

Visiting Turkey may satisfy Obama’s Islamic sympathies, as did his ill advised interview with Al Arabia, but with 12.5 million people unemployed in the United States, the President should stay home and concentrate on the economy.

Obama’s first week: Where is the beef?

28 Jan

The first week of President Obama in office was full of motion, but little movement forward.  The President demonstrated that he has a lot of energy and that he is willing to use it in office. Using a lot of energy is one thing, but harnessing it so that it produces positive results is another; did the Obama Administration produce any positive results?

Following are some of the most visible Obama accomplishments during week one:

  • Guantanamo —- Allowed President Obama to live up to a campaign promise, and bought him at least a year before his action can be actually measured.
  • Troop level in war zones —– Iraq troop level will be reduced; Afghanistan with 30,000 US troops now will receive at least 30,000 (committed) more, and Secretary of Defense Gates is warning of the likely need for more, one can expect in 2009 that in Afghanistan US troop level will be on par with what Iraq was. The promise of bringing troops home may prove in net to just be a campaign promise.
  • Middle East —- Sending George Mitchell to the region while Israel and the Palestinian Authority each has lame duck heads of state, is pre-mature, and foolish. Timing is important, but rushing things and speaking to the wrong people can spell disaster.
    • President Obama’s decision to grant his first television to Al-Arabia, a notorious anti-Israel (and its allies) news outlet sends a message that he feels a “bond” to the Islamic world. Was that action due to Obama’s Muslim-birth, upbringing, or “intellectual” considerations?
  • Economic Stimulus package —- at best a short-term help, a band-aide for a cancer. Unless the stimulus deals with getting the US to generate actual products, not just services, or fixes of infrastructure, the stimulus will exasperate the problem. 

So far negatives must include:

  1. The financial bailout: Loser, the American public
  2. Auto Industry bail out. Loser, the American public
  3. Al-Arabia interview, loser Israel, world Jewry, and all Zionists
  4. Troops: Rather than bringing troops home, transfer many to Afghanistan; Loser, the American Public.

Positive activities include Guantanamo (even though it will require a year to assess,) the stimulus package if it includes a requirement to “buy American,” and produce USA made products.
