Nelson Mandela was a heroic political figure, who overcame poverty, imprisonment, deprivation and abject persecution. Despite all that, he went on to become South Africa’s first democratically elected Black President.
Barack Obama has experienced none of this. Instead, Barack grew up in a life of privilege, private schools and Ivy League Universities. He has coasted through without a scintilla of problems or roadblocks, seizing every opportunity handed to him.
A life-long academic, who has been sucking of the teat of institutional welfare, becoming the first Black President elected in the United States.
Both men rising to become presidents of their respective nations is the only similarity, after that Mandela and Obama are worlds apart.
On the news of the death of Nelson Mandela, Obama didn’t offer humble words of admiration or reverence for his great achievements, instead he posted a photo of himself from a visit last year to the famed Robben Island jail cell that Mandela was held in for 26 years.
It’s ALL about Barack, the man-child sees nothing else but himself. Obama continues to slavishly rewrite history, injecting himself into world events. Yet when it comes to taking responsibility for any of his policies, statements, invectives, ad homonyms and hate speech, he blames everyone else.
Andrew Malcolm of Investors Business Daily frames it this way,
“At his Mandela photo op Thursday, Obama praised Mandela for the cameras as “a man who took history in his hands, and bent the arc of the moral universe toward justice” and as “one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings.”
But also Obama could not resist inserting himself into the Mandela moment. The U.S. president, who did not spend 27 years in prison for his convictions, whatever they are, recalled studying Mandela’s words as a youth.
And then, without anyone asking, a boastful Obama shared with the world his most minute connection with Mandela’s decades-long struggle against apartheid:
“My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid.”
Obama did not share what, if anything, came of that proclaimed protest. But it was certainly not even 27 minutes of imprisonment.
During his 593-word statement, Obama managed to reference the deceased freedom fighter eight times.
Predictably, Obama also managed to reference Obama 14 times.”
Can we believe anything this pompous ass spouts? He lies like a snake and is inept as the leader of the free world, a disgrace to all who have sacrificed so much for the United States of America. In three more years Obama will finally be on the ash heap of history.
Posted In flight to New York City 16:52DST
Two left wing hacks, President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry have given Iran the green light to continue to produce nuclear fissionable material and a nuclear weapon.
The so-called negotiated agreement and Obama’s optimistic spin, is eerily similar to that of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain after the Munich Agreement with Adolph Hitler in 1938. Neville proclaimed, “Peace in our time.” How did that work out for the world?
Then there is John Kerry, waxing philosophically in Zürich, telling the doubters that they have nothing to fear from Iran. Remember that other “brilliant” Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright? In 2000, Albright returned from talks in North Korea, proclaiming that Kim Jong Il was going to scale back its nuclear ambitions.
The AP reports that the United States and Iran have held secret meetings for a year. Iran decided to meet because the sanctions have economically crippled their nation.
The U.S. team had the upper hand to demand that Iran destroy their centrifuges to seriously impair their continuing refinement of uranium. They also could have insisted on the release of Pastor Saeed Abedini.
Instead it seems that Iran has won the negotiations with little sacrifice. The Geneva deal releases $7 billion from international sanctions in exchange for Iranian curbs on uranium enrichment and other nuclear activity.
Once again the Obama administration has thrown Israel under the bus, in a shortsighted attempt to prevent military action against Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “For years the international community has demanded that Iran cease all uranium enrichment. Now, for the first time, the international community has formally consented that Iran continue its enrichment of uranium.
“What was concluded in Geneva last night is not a historic agreement, it’s a historic mistake,”
Senator Ted Cruz said it right, “According to the interim agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program that was reached this weekend in Geneva, not one centrifuge will be destroyed,” “Not one pound of enriched uranium will leave Iran. Not one American unjustly detained in Iran’s notorious prisons will be released. But Iran will start to receive, in a matter of days, $7 billion in relief from international economics sanctions.” “The administration has gotten it backwards and it is time to reverse course before any further damage is done,”
Barack Obama continues to cozy up with our enemies in the Mid-East. The best example is with former President Morsi of Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood. It reaffirms his hate for a powerful America and is in sync with John Kerry. Kerry already proved that decades ago, after his service in Viet Nam, when he accused the U.S. Military of torturing innocent villagers.
They hate America and will willingly sell our interests and security down the river to meet their goal of the end of the U.S. as a super power.
This is a dangerously bad deal, best summed up by Naftali Bennett, the Israeli minister of trade and industry, “If in five years, a nuclear suitcase explodes in New York or Madrid,” “it will be because of the agreement that was signed this morning.”
You can always tell that it is summertime in Washington D.C. It’s not the hot and humid weather, or the thunderstorms, it’s the “Gone Fishin” sign hung on the White House door.
During the first summer of Barack Obama’s presidency, June of 2009, he said nothing in support of the thousands of Iranians marching in the streets of Tehran for fair elections. That was a pivotal moment in the President’s first term to take a stand and perhaps change the course of history in Iran, and the Middle East. Instead, there were photos of Barack and his family ordering ice cream in Martha’s Vineyard. [President Obama On Iran Just Like Jimmy Carter]
This is the fifth summer of Obama’s reign and once again a shit storm has developed in the Middle East, in this case, Egypt and no one is answering the phone in the White House.
While Obama, his family and a huge entourage traipsed around Africa, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians were once again camped out in Cairo’s Tahrir Square a year to the week of President Mohammed Morsi’s election.
Over a year and a half ago Egyptians were demanding the removal of President Hosni Mubarak. President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were pushing vigorously for that end. When the Muslim Brotherhood party won the election, Obama heralded it as a symbol of democracy. [Obama’s Calculus on Egypt a Big Fail]
Despite all the facts that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization, wishes to destroy Israel and impose sharia law, President Obama has promised over a billion dollars in assistance.
As late as Tuesday, Secretary of State, John Kerry was in communication with Morsi, desperately trying to resolve the crisis, even threatening to cut military aid IF Morsi was overthrown!
The Obama administration put all it’s money on backing up this Islamist, who re-wrote the Egyptian constitution to create the beginnings of a Caliphate. Has Barack Obama ever put the interests of the United States first? No need to answer, his deplorable record, speaks for itself.
Luckily, the people held to their will and finally the military conducted a coup, removing Morsi from power.
President Obama’s reaction was to dance around the truth and once again avoid standing tall as our Commander-In-Chief. “We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution.
I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters.”
As the coup began and Morsi was placed under house arrest, Secretary of State, John Kerry was on vacation in Nantucket, on board his wife’s yacht “Isabel”. Captain Kerry was “reporting for duty”, man the sails, hoist the anchor!
What irony, Kerry sailing and Obama in a faux Situation Room photo-op. Too bad there is no evidence of the same concern by our President, back when the United States mission in Benghazi was burning and four brave Americans were murdered by al Quada.
Over the last five years President Obama has been at the helm of the worst foreign policy in the history of the United States. The most striking example of his amateur approach, has been the Middle East and his policy towards Islam.
It was so important for Barack Obama to extend a hand to Muslims that he made a speech in Cairo, June 4, 2009. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.“
So there you have it folks, our President genuflects towards Mecca, while the Secretary of State, John Kerry, mans the bow of his yacht and screams, “King of the world.”
Barack Obama will go down as THE worst U.S. president ever, but don’t sweat it, it’s summertime, November 2014 is only 16 months away.
In the mid terms of 2014 we can send a message to President Obama that we are taking back our government by throwing out all the statists and putting in candidates that follow the will of the people.
Adding insult to injury, President Obama tweeted this photo, Friday afternoon, with the caption, “Have a nice weekend everybody.”
CAUTION GRAPHIC IMAGES
The dual bombings in Boston at the Marathon finishing line was an act of TERROR, you idiot!
Yet, there was President Obama, making a statement to the nation only a few hours after the horrific attack, saying anything but the truth. Everyone who has seen the images on television knows that this was an act of terrorism. But he could not say the words.
What is it about this president that any time our nation is threatened, attacked, or brave Americans have given their lives defending freedom, that Barack Obama carefully couches his words and speaks in the most PC manner?
He dares not to offend those that hate us, but spares nothing in attacking his political opponents, making ridiculous conclusions and condemning anyone who disagrees with him.
What a weak, cowardly child Barack Obama is. He is no Commander-In-Chief to me.
I watched in horror just moments after the bombs went of in Boston. I saw raw footage of bloody and disfigured victims being led away in wheel chairs or on stretchers. There was even a brief moment where I saw a man with his leg blown off and the shin bone exposed.
The images could have been from a market in Baghdad or a bus in Tel Aviv. But not here, not in America? Two bombs exploded only seconds apart, filled with shrapnel, designed to kill, maim and injure as many as possible. That is terrorism
The police, security, military and private citizens rushed fearlessly into the carnage to tear the barricades apart and attend to the injured. The crowds were screaming and crying. There could have been a third or fourth bomb, but that didn’t stop them. I watched as a surge of police in yellow vests, paramedics and firefighters ran to the rescue. Soothing those in shock, applying tourniquets and blood stop – it was a battlefield.
Despite the shocking and horrifying images displayed everywhere, President Obama showed no anger or said anything close to the outrage every American felt at that moment.
Barack read from an emotionless script, as if what happened in Boston was an accident.
“We still do not know who did this or why. And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But make no mistake — we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
With out any doubt, this was an act of terrorism.
It was a beautiful holiday in Boston, the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, with crowds of thousands, peacefully and happily watching their friends, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and children run to the finishing line. Then horror struck as a coward or a den of cowards set off two bombs in the middle of crowded sidewalks.
The President says, “people shouldn’t jump to conclusions”, but we all know what this was; another attack on the homeland. It was terrorism and Mr. President, you have failed to protect us, once again.
The very last day of 2012 and it’s been high drama up on Capitol Hill. Pundits, Reporters, Congressman, and Senators have all had their moment facing television cameras and talking about whether or not there will be a deal on the pending “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations. The anticipation is as palpable as waiting for midnight on New Year’s Eve and watching the iconic crystal ball drop in Times Square.
When the White House announced that President Obama will make remarks on the Fiscal Cliff about 1:30 P.M. from the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the speculation was rampant that something big was up.
However the drama was short lived when the President appeared in front of homogenous group of “Middle Class every day Americans” and spoke before an auditorium filled with more of the middle class, all clapping like the trained seals they were.
It rivaled everyone of Obama’s campaign style events he has had over the last four years, the audience was smitten. One audience member shouted, “Thank you for having us.” (Laughter.)
Was the President there to announce a deal? No, it was another way for Obama to twist the knife deeper into the backs of Republicans in Congress.
“For the last few days, leaders in both parties have been working toward an agreement that will prevent a middle class tax hike from hitting 98 percent of all Americans, starting tomorrow. Preventing that tax hike has been my top priority, because the last thing folks like the folks up here on this stage can afford right now is to pay an extra $2,000 in taxes next year. Middle-class families can’t afford it. Businesses can’t afford it. Our economy can’t afford it.”
Once again, Obama seized the opportunity to make fun of the lawmakers, during the most sensitive time in the negotiations. “But with this Congress, that was obviously a little too much to hope for at this time. (Laughter.) It may be we can do it in stages. We’re going to solve this problem instead in several steps.”
This was President Obama’s “Mission Accomplished” moment, “Now, today it appears that an agreement to prevent this New Year’s tax hike is within sight, but it’s not done. There are still issues left to resolve, but we’re hopeful that Congress can get it done. But it’s not done.“ (full text)
What kind of clown has this country elected, twice? There he was joking and playing to the audience, instead of being Presidential and taking the issue seriously. His demeanor was insulting to Congress and the American people. An immature, boorish performance from a true political hack.
This country will have to suffer under four more years of a president who neither respects the privilege of office nor the citizens he serves.
Not having to face election, Barack Obama’s true agenda is being revealed. He wants to stick it to the “wealthy’, an undefined group that includes large portions of his cherished middle class as well as business owners. Obama will ramp up his anti-oil and coal agenda.
The horrible Newtown massacre has provided him with impetus to demand more restrictive gun ownership legislation. Obama will continue to by pass Congress with Department mandates and Executive Orders.
Meanwhile he escapes blame for the four killed in Benghazi with a compliant Congress and worshiping media.
President Obama just wants to spend and spend with no end in sight and no resolve to fix our deficit. His phony tax on the top 2% is a drop in the ocean of red ink. Touting “tax cuts” for the middle class is a lie, in 2013, millions of Americans will face new Obamacare taxes. (Obamacare Tax Hikes)
The framers of the Constitution worked diligently to prevent this nation from ever being under the rule of a monarch. Instead we now have King Obama.
A New Year begins, but I don’t know how happy it will be.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 16 years to get that many views.
After June 12 of 2009, Iranian citizens took to the streets to peacefully protest the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and were met with a brutal show of force by the secret police. On June 20th one of the protesters, Neda Soltan was murdered in cold blood and Neda became the symbol of Iran’s Green Revolution.
In contrast newly elected President Barack Obama sat silent and said nothing in support of Iranians quest for freedom and democracy. Instead he was photographed taking his family out for ice cream.
Since then, whenever there are people risking their lives for freedom in an oppressive Islamist middle eastern country, look to the nearest ice cream parlor for Obama’s reaction. That smile is for ice cream and not for those who are fighting for liberty; this President can only vote “Present”.
When it was politically expedient, Obama lauded the “Arab Spring” of 2011, even claiming credit for it. When protests began in Tahrir Square in Cairo, both he and Hillary Clinton quickly threw Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak under the bus, telling him to relinquish power. Suddenly President Obama regained his voice and promoted a peaceful transition in Egypt.
On June 24th of this year, Mohamed Morsi representing the Muslim Brotherhood, was elected President of Egypt. Most Washington wonks expressed concern that this would mean that Egypt would become another extreme Islamist state.
The Obama White House extolled the election as a great example of democracy, even downplaying the Brotherhood’s murderous past. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, stated that the Muslim Brotherhood was now “largely secular in its orientation.”
Within days of assisting in brokering a cease-fire between Israel and Gaza, Morsi, declared himself and the two legislative bodies dominated by his Muslim Brotherhood to be above the reach of the nation’s judicial branch and the constitution. There are real fears that this is the first step in forcing Egypt to be ruled by Sharia law.
President Obama has said nothing, not one word of condemnation on Morsi’s illegal grab for power, but then Barack has been fairly cavalier himself, when it comes to respecting the U.S. Constitution.
Iran is edging closer to having nuclear weapons, Syria’s government is killing it’s people with impunity and Egypt looks to be the next Islamist state. Where is President Obama on all this? Playing golf for the 107th time and then directing his 24 car motorcade to the nearest ice cream parlor for a triple cone.
Obama and his family will be heading off to their annual Hawaiian vacation on December 17th and while there, expect lots of photos of him enjoying his favorite shaved ice.
Contrast those happy family Christmas photo-ops of licking ice cream, with our fiscal troubles, Hamas firing rockets into Israel, Iran going nuclear, Syria’s thousands of dead civilians, Egyptians being robbed of a democratic voice and the murders of four U.S. citizens in Benghazi, Libya.
That’s who this nation has re-elected for another four years of impotence and abrogation of responsibility; our ice cream eating failure, the 45th President of the United States, Barack Obama.
