The decline and fall of America under a pinko, flower-child president.
(Page 2 of 2)
Then in South Korea, there was the open mic controversy, where President Obama was heard telling his confidante, outgoing Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved. But it is important for [Putin] to give me space. This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Medvedev responded, “I will deliver this information to Vladimir.”
As Sen. Jon Kyl translated in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, “It appears the president is willing to compromise our own missile-defense capabilities to secure Russian support for another round of nuclear-arms reductions.” Martin Peretz further translated in the Journal last Friday:
But really the message, the important one, concerns us here in America. It is that the American people can’t be trusted if the president is honest with them about what he proposes. More bluntly, that the American people are not trusted by their own President. Otherwise the President would tell us the truth about his intentions. And here he is, admitting his distrust of his own people to a leader of a nasty foreign government that seeks to thwart our purposes in the Middle East and elsewhere. President Obama is in cahoots with the Russian regime against the American body politic.
It should have been obvious that President Obama was never going to follow through on his promises to Senate Republicans to get his New Start Treaty ratified, as those promises were contrary to his long standing positions throughout his political career. This is why Republicans in the Indiana primary on May 8 should vote out Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Richard Lugar, who led the roundup of sufficient Republican votes in the 2010 overwhelmingly Democrat Senate to give Obama his treaty ratification victory. In the past, Lugar was a solid Republican. But the 80-year-old Senator now seeking his seventh term has lost control of his staff, which robotizes him in favor of critical votes for the dangerous Obama agenda.
America’s Nuclear Suicide
Obama’s literally crazy idea is that if we just lead by example and phase out our nuclear weapons, everyone else will realize we mean them no harm, and do the same. As a result, because of the messiah, the lion will lie down with the lamb, and the world will live as one.
As Gaffney further explained, “He evidently is prepared to take such a step unilaterally in order to encourage by our example other nations to join his long-standing ambition to ‘rid the world of nuclear weapons.’”
The problem is if President Obama is reelected, he as the commander-in-chief would be free to carry out this flower child policy on his own authority, without Congressional approval. As Gaffney further explained in the March 27 Washington Times, “Mr. Obama’s subordinates are signaling, however, that he is prepared to disarm us unilaterally through what one of them, Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller, recently called ‘executive action.’”
Gaffney rightly concluded in his February 22 column, “It is an astonishing insight into the President’s commitment to ‘fundamentally transforming the United States of America’ — in the worst sense of the phrase — that he is willing to take such steps in the midst of his reelection campaign. Imagine what he would do if the last vestiges of restraining accountability are removed in a second term.”
In these modern times, a full blown nuclear war would be over in a matter of days. America will not have four years to build up the arsenal of democracy if caught by surprise. A dew-eyed miscalculation on these matters literally threatens your very life, and the lives of your family and children.
That is why not only President Obama must be held accountable for this national defense foolishness, but the entire Democrat party that supports and enables him. That includes his contributors, whose names are publicly available, and his voters. This is a Paul Revere moment. The survival of you, your family and your nation is at stake, far more so than even on that April night in 1775. Exercise your rights of freedom of speech and democratic participation while you still have them, indeed, while you are still alive.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
