Obama’s progressive agenda puts the US at risk

America's fight against Daesh and Islamist terror is piecemeal and incoherent; is that President Obama's intention?

WASHINGTON, February 13, 2015 — President Obama seems intent on destroying America, its culture, and its way of life. He is pursuing a UN-backed progressive agenda and believes that he alone knows what this country stands for.

He hasn’t been fastidiously honest about what he’s doing. He believes he can say whatever he has to to get what he wants; in true Marxist fashion, the ends justifies the means.

Obama uses the power of the federal government to deter those who disagree with his agenda and to instill fear in anyone who challenges him. But is he truly dangerous?

During a VOX interview, Obama said that because of the media, Americans believe that terrorism is a bigger threat than climate change. He says Americans are wrong, suggesting that climate change is the greater threat, more dangerous than the terrorists who rape, behead and burn to death anyone who rejects their idea of Islamic law.

Climate change is a greater threat than those who sell children and women into slavery.

Obama seems to view terrorism much as the mayor of a town views crime, vowing to reduce crime rates without caring whether it’s even possible. The point is to sound hard on crime, not to stop crime.

Three retired general officers recently testified that neither the White House nor the yes-men surrounding it have any clue what to do, or how deal with the terrorism threat the White House cannot even name. Retired Army Gen. John Keane referred to our “very piecemeal effort,” saying “This approach almost certainly guarantees we will be incrementally engaged with one radical group after another with no end in sight.”

Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis said the U.S. “needs to come out from our reactive crouch and take a firm strategic stance in defense of our values.”

The people destroying the Middle East, killing Christians, destroying historical artifacts and cities are called “insurgents” when they are really no more than terrorists.

Obama ran from Iraq and will do the same in Afghanistan. The generals in charge of our forces there want to extend their stay to maintain what has been achieved, but they have Susan Rice to answer to. With Rice commanding our armed forces, Afghanistan will end up in the same condition as Iraq.

American generals know how to win wars, so they have been systematically released from duty, replaced by people who will smile and support the president’s agenda. At the same time, our military is being reduced to World War One levels; is it any wonder that world leaders question the intentions of the United States?

Under Obama, Islamists have increased the amount of territory they control four-fold; ISIS has eight times the manpower it had. The U.S. has lost any chance of shaping events in Beirut, Syria, Baghdad, and Yemen.

Obama’s reticence to fight ISIS with more than drones, and his inability to condemn it as an expression of radical Islam may have roots in his Islamic background, courtesy of his father and youth in Indonesia. There is an old saying, “breeding tells and never fails,” meaning that no matter how hard we fight, we will return to the patterns of our upbringing.

Obama claims to be a Christian, but is he in fact a “Christian” because that is what the American people expect? As a past follower of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, the nature of his Christianity is a matter of doubt.

While in Wright’s church, Obama claims to not have heard the anti-White, anti-American sentiments Wright expounded from his pulpit. Obama rarely listens to anyone — not Congress, not he American people — so it may be very true that he did not.

Obama has ensured that the next president will have a lot of work to do to bring this country back to being a world leader. The fight against ISIS will be passed on to our next president. Until then, the reliability of the United States to stand with our allies in the Middle East and beyond must be demonstrated.

But by whom?

    The way to test the imminent dangers of climate change verses Islamic dangers is to print a cartoon of mohammed, and then go stand on the shores of the ocean; and see what kills you first – the rising oceans, or Islamic terrorists !
