What Not “Oppressing” Hath Wrought

REFUGEES:

Obama’s “leading from behind,” i.e., not “oppressing” other countries with our nasty-ass, white, colonial imperialism has had profound consequences – but not in a good way. The misery told in this chart is unimaginable.

Total 34.46M “persons of concern” were “displaced” at the end of 2008 (You can click the little tabs in the graphic). Refugees, basically. People who had to leave home, against their will, because staying meant death, either fast or slow.

By the end of 2015*? (Nearly) DOUBLED. 63.91M.

Perspective? 34.46M is roughly the total population of America’s top 20 biggest cities. (Via the U.S. Census, accurate as of 2015.)

CHANT IT WITH ME: “This is what colonialism looks like!”

 
Thank GOD they’re not “oppressed” anymore.

Heckuva job, Barry.

The Obama Doctrine’s Perfect Analogy

“As far as it’s possible to make out, the Obama Doctrine for the Mideast consisted of an abandonment of our traditional allies in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood, the ur-terror organization that gave birth to al-Qaeda and eventually ISIS. Allowed to take over in Egypt and encouraged in several other states, the Brotherhood was treated as a government-in-waiting — as if the Mafia was being encouraged to take over Italy.”

Heartily recommend this piece in its entirety, Recovering from Obama: Foreign Policy, at American Thinker. It’s brilliant.

Stubbornly, Positively Ineducable

Regarding the last time a Democrat President (Clinton/North Korea) played nuclear footsie with genocidal maniacs…

If you don’t learn from the past, you will repeat it. Guess it helps to be a Democrat. Because then you can just ignore it, with the help of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, etc, quite literally papering it over for you.  Past, shmast. This time it’ll work.  No. Really. It will. See, the right people weren’t in charge then. We’re wicked super-smart. We got this…

Uh, huh.

Benghazi’s TRUE Meaning & DANGER

In a May 3, 2014, American Thinker piece entitled Dangerous Times: Still Missing the Strategic Meaning of Benghazi”  by one James Lewis, we see, plainly, in a way few – very few – have done before, how uniquely treasonous the occupant of the Oval truly is. And I mean every single syllable of that: uniquely treasonous the occupant of the Oval is. Notice I did not say how wrong the President is. I said what I meant and I meant what I said.

We don’t know who this man is, and we have never – never – seen anything like this before.

Read excerpts below, but please, take the time to read the entire thing when you have a quiet few minutes to truly digest it.

==========================

From Dangerous Times: Still Missing the Strategic Meaning of Benghazi“: 

…Obama’s secret policies have… been exposed to public view with the Benghazi fiasco. It is now clear that since Obama came to power, the U.S. government has overturned all the fundamental values that have characterized American policy from Thomas Jefferson onward. Under Obama we have secretly joined the terrorist side in the Jihad War.

In any other administration that would be unbelievable, but consider the facts.

1) 500 million dollars in arms to al-Qaeda in Syria.

Intelligence analyst Clare Lopez and a group of distinguished retired military and intelligence experts released a statement …. ‘(after) a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack (in Benghazi that) has determined that it could have been prevented — if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.’…

Now stay with that for a minute. The United States government gave half a billion dollar in armaments to murderous al-Qaeda butchers who kill Christian children in Syria and Kenya in the name of Allah…

But this undoubted crime against humanity is not the first policy perversion this administration has committed…

2) Active collusion with the fanatical Islamofascist Muslim Brotherhood sect in overthrowing… Hosni Mubarak, who was literally told by Obama to resign, in public… No informed Egyptian doubts …Obama (i)s a ruthless enabler of an Islamofascist sect… [Mubarak] followed Anwar Sadat, the first heroic Arab leader to make peace with Israel, a peace that has now lasted for forty years. It is still the only formal peace agreement that has brought stability to the chronically unstable Middle East. Obama deliberately undermined Hosni Mubarak, and Bill Ayers was even reported to be agitating against Mubarak in collusion with the Hamas gang in Gaza…

3) …Hillary’s closest sidekick Huma Abedin comes from an MB family — everything comes down to family and tribe in the Arab world — and edited a Muslim Sisterhood magazine before her present role in the Hillary campaign. Huma was Hillary’s closest aide as Secretary of State, and therefore privy to numerous secrets. You can bet that Mohammed Morsi in Egypt knew all about the inner workings of Hillary’s State Department. Hillary was in charge during the Benghazi debacle. Just connect the dots…

4) …And now we can plainly see that Obama has actually enabled the mullahs’ rush to nuclear weapons. The fact that Valerie Jarrett was born in Khomeinist Iran and grew up in that kind of family is just another sign of radical Islamists penetration of this administration, at the very highest level.

5) …Today, contrary to Obama’s election time lies about Benghazi, al-Qaeda is expanding explosively in Africa and the Middle East. The Malaysian Airlines plane that somehow disappeared recently may well have carried a terrorist bomb…

In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood actually won power with Obama’s active collusion… Today, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt are seeing huge civil conflict, precisely because of Obama’s idea of community organizing in the Middle East. This administration has made things worse, and at least 100,000 people have died as a result. Does the phrase “crime against humanity” ring any bells?

6) Obama’s closest “friend” in the Middle East is said to be Turkey’s increasingly dictatorial Recip Erdogan, who peddles another throwback ideology to the horrific past, called “neo-Ottomanism.” …Today the most famous crime of the late Ottomans is the Armenian Genocide, which Obama has failed to even call by its proper name: A planned mass murder of vast numbers of Armenian Christians by Djemal Pasha, solely because of their faith and ethnicity…

7) The NATO invasion of Libya was a clear violation of international law. When Mr. Obama was asked on TV about the need for Congressional approval of the Libyan invasion, he simply laughed. As the ACORN Manual puts it, in politics “only might is right.” (That was of course a Nazi slogan.)

NATO bombing in collusion with Libya’s al-Qaeda gangs destabilized the relatively sane regime of Muammar Gaddafi, who had actually surrendered his nuclear arms program to the Bush Administration. Bush and Cheney were desperate to reduce the spread of nuclear weapons and ICBMs to suicidal groups like the Iranians. Obama reversed that policy. He has actually enabled Iran’s nuclear program, and lately he openly surrendered to Iran in Geneva. The mullahs couldn’t stop laughing. Now the Saudis are now reported to be buying their own nukes and missiles, because they are fifty miles across the Gulf from Iran’s missiles. Obama has therefore actively enabled a nuclear arms race in the Gulf. The facts are clear…

==========================

There’s more. It MUST be read in it’s ENTIRETY.  SEVERAL TIMES and CONTEMPLATED if you are to be TRULY awake and informed. PLEASE.

 

Nature Abhors a Vacuum

American Thinker hits it out of the park (again!) with this analysis of Obama’s foreign policy – and surprisingly, offers a bit of relief, as encapsulated in this quote: “During the Soviet Empire the rise of Russia would have been very bad news. Today it might give us breathing space, to fix what is wrong at home.” It’s ass-backwards, like everything else in the Age of Obama, but it’s relief none-the-less.  An abbreviated version of the article is below, but if you click here you can enjoy it in its entirety.

Dangerous Times: Russia Rising in the Middle East
By James Lewis

Now that America is leading from behind, more serious powers are rushing to fill the vacuum… When America bugs out, what follows is not love and peace – contrary to deeply delusional liberals. What happens is a worldwide scramble for king of the hill. Instability breeds war… Civil war has erupted all over the place – Egypt, Libya, and Syria… And to show his profound concern for all the killing, Obama is sending vacation postcards from Martha’s Vineyard…

The Arabs aren’t smiling. In Egypt, both sides blame Obama. In Libya and Syria, we have alienated both sides, too. Behind the scenes, the Saudis are paying for the Egyptian military to knock down the Muslim Brotherhood, while the oil sheikhs of Qatar are trying to shaft the Saudis… (and) in the absence of American strength and reliability, all the players are turning to Russia…

That doesn’t mean Putin is a nice man, or that Russia isn’t going to pursue greater power. Putin is a Great Russian ruler.China, Europe, and Islam are his biggest historical threats. But in the nuclear age there are threats all around. Putin is therefore looking to take our place as the decisive power in the Middle East… Suppose you are Egypt’s General Sisi, trying to run a nation in chaos. Who do you want to guarantee your safety? A self-loathing, treacherous Obama, or a ruthless but very consistent Putin?

The answer is clear enough…

Obama may yearn to be adored, but Putin wants to be feared and respected. Putin is a man, with masculine values. Obama is not…
