WASHINGTON, January 5, 2017 – Over the past two weeks, while Americans were involved with holiday festivities, President Barack Obama made significant foreign policy moves that demonstrate his true colors as an American president. These moves reveal he is not an American – not because his birth as an American citizen is in question, which it still is – but fundamentally, because he has just endangered a long-standing ally of the United States when his administration allowed the United Nations to pass the audacious sanctions against the nation of Israel. In fact, there may be evidence that the U.S. president orchestrated it. Additionally, without serious provocation, Obama has ordered U.S. troops to amass along the Russian border, which is a controversial and confrontational move toward a war with the former Soviet Union.
Amazingly enough, Obama seems to be finally revealing who he really is to his own party, to the American people, and to the entire world as he enters his last days of power as president. In mid-December, the president offered his final foreign policy speech to a group at McDill Air Force Base and shared that he learned he is “the first President of the United States to serve two full terms during a time of war.” This speaks more loudly than any speech, and more ironically, as he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize as he entered the office of POTUS. Although the award was not based on anything Obama actually did, it demonstrates an extreme irony based upon his words that almost indicate his pride in such a claim because he referenced it.
Unfortunately, Obama’s allusions in the speech regarding the perception that he kept Americans safe during his “reign” are either self-deception or outright propaganda. And as he holds on to the power he has to wield, Obama seems to be taking much of what is happening in the world around him with such a self-centered focus that he may actually believe his words have some semblance to the truth.
At the time, the Obama Administration’s U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, may have also bought the story of her boss that the relations between the United States and Israel will continue to be strong despite no veto of destructive sanctions against America’s only real ally in the turbulent Middle East. And, John Kerry’s diatribe indicates he has thoroughly swallowed the Party Line! Self-deception — or outright Party-Line propaganda? Obama must feel he has little to lose as he is on his way out of the seat of power.
It seems that sensible Democrats in Congress have broken with Obama over his support of sanctions against Israel, but one further dangerous disconnect from reality occurred quite recently as Obama has amassed U.S. troops along the Russian border in what seems to be a political “game of chicken” with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. Over the holidays, while Americans were paying more attention to their families and holiday festivities, Mr. Obama announced he was deporting 35 Russian diplomats who were “suspected” of computer hacking and interfering with the 2016 presidential election. This was a claim without evidence to substantiate it, yet Obama has little left to lose in his last few days in office.
True colors shine clearly as Obama’s recent foreign policy moves indicate that he is not truly concerned about the value of the U.S. – Israeli relations, nor any potential harm that could be wrought upon the Israeli citizens by hate-filled Muslim-run nations and various Islamist terrorist organizations in the immediate vicinity. One of the more radical arrangements that is being revealed as part of the Iran nuclear deal was the fact that the U.S. would not support Israel if they launched a pre-emptive, defensive attack against Iran over nuclear weapons development. In essence, Israel would be left to its own to defend itself, as the Obama White House has truly demonstrated that he is more supportive of Iran and terrorist organizations generating chaos, as well as destruction and death in the Middle East.
Ironically, the very claims the Obama Administration seems to be willing to go to war with Russia over, is the actual actions of what Obama was attempting to do in the elections in Israel earlier in his term. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times revealed in an article in July of 2016, that the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations concluded that the Obama State Department “paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu….” in the nation’s 2015 elections. This is essentially the epitome of hypocrisy.
Obama does not represent the interests of the American people, and does not care about protecting the well-being of the allies of freedom, let alone protecting the Land of the Free. He and his Party are self-centered, self-serving, power hungry, elitists with an agenda that has little in accord with protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States against enemies both foreign and domestic. Obama has tolerated domestic terrorism in the violence perpetrated against the men and women in uniform, pretended that the violent acts of terror against American citizens were the results of workplace violence, or the actions of disgruntled victims – not determined militant Islamist terrorists, and is willing to release (on more than one occasion) convicted criminals onto the streets of American cities.
So, why would it be surprising now that Obama is willing to endanger Israeli citizens to the horrors of terrorism, or endanger Americans even more with beating the drums of war with an adversary that he mocked Mitt Romney for declaring Russia was one of our most serious foreign adversaries. This happens to be the same man who downplayed the serious threat of ISIS as a junior varsity player in the Middle East.
The new Congress is in session now, and before Obama leaves the White House, he should be seen for what he really is, and that is not a true American. So, it should not be that difficult for the Congress to deem him a domestic enemy of the Constitution and an enemy of the people. He needs to be put in his proper place before he is released back into the wide world.
