Back in the days when Vladimir Putin’s bosses worked under the Soviet banner, that particular regime was called “Godless.”  It was called that because, well, it was Godless.  In fact, it persecuted Christians, Jews, and the like.  Now, it seems that the tables have turned…

In the irony of ironies, Russian President Valadimir Putin has criticized western nations for straying from their Christian roots. Putin’s statement, made during his state of the nation address this past December, contends that America has become a “Godless” nation.  What Putin actually said was: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values.  Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.  This is the path to degradation.”  This is quite a statement coming from a former KGB officer who faithfully served a nation that executed more than 200,000 clergy in the years between 1917 and 1937.

Fear not folks; we know that Putin doesn’t wear a white hat.  It’s as I have been saying as of late; “Obama is so pathetic, that he makes Putin look good.”  But, does Putin have a point?  According to , Putin just might be onto something…

Putin is not alone in his belief that the West has strayed from its Christian roots.  Patriarch Kirill I of the Russian Orthodox Church has claimed that Western nations are guilty of “spiritual disarmament.”  Although it is a little easier to take such a statement when it comes from a religious patriarch than a former KGB officer, Kirill is simply saying the same thing as Putin.  Consequently, for those who want to ignore the message because it comes from an unworthy messenger—President Putin formerly of the “evil empire”—let me encourage you to respond to the following questions before making up your mind:

  • Have liberals conspired with leftwing academics to rewrite American history so that the Christian principals upon which the United States of America was founded have been expunged from the record and replaced by anti-Christian, anti-American tripe that focuses solely on our nation’s warts and blemishes?  Further, have liberal revisionists rewritten the textbooks so that American students spend 12 years learning why they should be embarrassed by and ashamed of our country?
  • Have liberals conspired to be tolerant of everything in America except Christianity?  Is it not true that in the public square Islam, Hinduism, moral relativism, and other religions get a pass while Christianity is to be neither mentioned nor tolerated?
  • Have liberals conspired to transform public education in America into 12 years of leftwing indoctrination that belittles and scorns Christians as Puritanical bigots while praising secular humanism?
  • Have liberals conspired to attack, undermine, and trash Christians who oppose same-sex marriage on Biblical grounds?  Do wedding businesses that do not wish to perform same-sex marriages on Biblical grounds immediately become targets of government coercion and threats from the homosexual community?
  • Have liberals conspired to ensure that the Lord’s Prayer and Bible readings are no longer a part of the public school experience as they once were in all 50 states?  Further, have liberals worked with the ACLU to deny Christians their Constitutional right to pray at high school athletic events and graduations?

Please read the rest of the post, as it is quite good.  Of course, Putin isn’t saying or doing anything for our benefit.  He is simply taking advantage of a weak POTUS with a sense of national loyalty that would make Quisling blush.  And, in the process, Vladimir Putin is forging a name for himself, and attempting to displace us as the world’s predominate super-power.

Give Peace A Chance“Now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions, now is the time for us to … give diplomacy a chance, give peace a chance.” – Barack Obama

“And by peace he means let Iran have nuclear weapons…” (Weasel Zippers)

Well, we knew Barack Obama was a Leninist, but it appears we had the wrong Lenin. What’s next, a Bed-In with the Mooch taking Yoko’s place while Barry fiddles with his granny glasses and channels the shade of Tim Leary? Hardly. Obama’s antipathy for radical Islam has always been less than skin deep, and his idea of peace seems to be buying the mullahs enough time to go comfortably nuclear. If recycling inanities from the Sixties helps the cause, then Obama will gladly break out the bongs, turn on the black lights, and dole out the hash brownies.

Barack Obama’s inexplicable and increasingly dangerous tilt toward Iran is getting harder to hide. Whether his administration is consciously shifting policy or simply making ad hoc, unrelated (even incoherent) decisions is unclear. But the cumulative effect is indisputable — a declining America in the Middle East inevitably means a stronger Iran, portending grave risks for Washington and its appalled friends and allies. (TribLive)

The Freaky BrothersYou’d have to be as stoned as a Furry Freak Brother or a Persian philandress to believe that Obama’s Geneva agreement will suffer a better fate than a fat chicken in Colonel Sander’s kitchen. Not even the squishiest of Congressional Democrats believes that, judging, at least, by the numbers of them desirous of reimposing sanctions on the regime.  Rouhani and the gloating Iranians certainly don’t think so:

“Do you know what the Geneva agreement means? It means the surrender of the big powers before the great Iranian nation.” – Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran

“No facility will be closed; enrichment will continue, and qualitative and nuclear research will be expanded.  All research into a new generation of centrifuges will continue.” – Abbas Araqchi, Chief Iranian Negotiator

“Had the enemy been able to confront us militarily, it would have already taken action. Given their weakness in the military dimension, they have opted for the political arena and we will certainly succeed in this area too.” — Iranian Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi

Salehi’s probably right, considering the left wing Islamophile America has twice thoughtlessly installed as Commander-In-Chief.

PETA Plans to Deploy Drones to “Stalk” Hunters, Who do you Think is Going to Win?

Share

PETA is announcing that they are looking into deploying drones to “stalk” hunters.  Yes, that’s right, they are going to “stalk” hunters.  Us News has the rest…

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is actively shopping for a drone that would “stalk hunters,” the organization said Monday.

The group says it will “soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves” and that it is “shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds.”

The group says it will not weaponize the drones, but will use them to film potentially illegal hunting activity and turn it over to law enforcement.

“The talk is usually about drones being used as killing machines, but PETA drones will be used to save lives,” PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement.

Um, that’s nice that the bird-brains won’t be weaponizing the drones, however, they will be using them to “stalk” highly weaponized hunters.  Who do you think is going to win that fight?

A quick look at the Cinesstar website, the company from which PETA is looking to purchase drones, shows that the desired model runs from $4000 to $8000, and is most definitely not bulletproof.  So, they want to fly something with eight rotors, and has a range of 250 meters.  I wonder how many they can afford to replace when their hunters become the hunted?

In fact, another animal rights organization had what appears to be a similar drone shot down last year.  I apologize in advance for the whiny commentary in the video…

I think drone hunting just might become a sport all it’s own.

Fighting Words

Despite what some of my less than tolerant liberal acquaintances may believe, my military experience does not date back to the era of hardtack and beans — soldiers in the field in my day supped on such culinary catastrophes as ham and chopped eggs delivered in an olive-drab tin can laboriously broached (especially when the icy January winds that regularly blast through the Fulda Gap have demobilized your every digit) by the ubiquitous P38P-38 (OPENER, CAN, HAND, FOLDING, TYPE I).  The quality of these antique military victuals may be adduced by the fact that everyone’s favorite item in a case of C-rations was generally the finely grained sandpaper that passed for toilet tissue. Fortunately, the old C-rat has gone the way of the musket and the cavalry horse. Not all modern martial transformations are as equally beneficial:

Oblivious to important differences between men and women, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing the Department of Defense to lift all combat exemptions for women. Not putting women into combat deprives them of their constitutional rights, the ACLU is arguing on behalf of four servicewomen in a complaint filed Tuesday in a federal court in San Francisco.

[…] The military has kept women out of direct ground combat for a moral reason: Deliberately putting women in harm’s way is not right; and for practical reasons: Women are not as physically strong, and they have an impact on the men around them. In a civilized society, men are raised to protect women. Now some of America’s elite warrior units train men to be indifferent to women’s screams. That’s what passes for “progress” in a “progressive” military. (viaKNIGHT: Deceitful debate over women in combat – Washington Times)

Women In Combat

The argument posed by the left-wing lawyers nesting inside the ACLU that the fair sex possess a Constitutional right to engage in battle is as pernicious as all the other “progressive” legal speculations which inculcate the rot that currently threatens our culture and our national security.  Besides, any woman who really wants to experience combat doesn’t need to join an infantry outfit — all she need do is get married.

[…] The Marine Corps has opened Infantry Officers Course for a pilot program to study how well women could perform in combat roles. The first two females, and only two entered, both quickly flopped; one on the first day, the other within a week. No female marines have yet opted for the next session.

Women aren’t lining up for these positions; it’s mostly activist intellectuals trying to shoehorn pretenses into reality. The Marine Corps began this study at the behest of the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Service (DACOWITS). The Obama administration meddles to fix what isn’t broken …

… There was a study done of women marines during my service. It revealed alarming numbers of WMs who lacked the strength to pull the slide back on a service pistol, an inability to throw hand grenades far enough to refrain from blowing themselves up and little capacity to carry wounded comrades to safety. (Memo To The ACLU: Don’t Put Women Into Combat | Forbes)

Such a study should surprise no one, not even a poisonous leftist like our current president, a man who will routinely place the life and limb of anyone (except himself) at risk in the service of his ideological delusions. But take it from an ex-GI whose training experience includes having had one dropped at his feet one fine Southern afternoon by a fumble-fingered recruit from the Bronx (thank God for long fuses and alert drill instructors) — when it comes to hand delivered explosive devices, a strong and reliable arm is the only thing that’sever politically correct.

Anti-Semitism Alert: Obama Supporters Call for Israel’s Destruction

Share

Just in case you have forgotten, the left and the Democratic Party are the current home for Anti-Semitism in the US.  And, in the event you had forgotten that here is a video from Rebel Pundit…

I’m sure that more and more of this will come out, and I’ll be reminding the Jews that voted for Obama that they have legitimized the voices of those that wish them dead.

Also, it is tragic to see some of the complete naivete of these followers of the POTUS.  And, of course, it will be someone else’s fault when their beautiful messiah fails miserably.

NOTE:  I’ve added Rebel Pundit to the blogroll here, so look for their posts in the Sunday Links!

Parallel Universe Alert: The Alleged Demands of Occupy Wall Street-Socialism and Unreality, or do I Repeat Myself?

Share

While I was on lunch today, I heard Limbaugh talking about the “demands” of the Occupy Wall Street crowd.  I worked extra late tonight, but as soon as I got home, I just had to Google it and see what I found.  And found it I did.  Of course, this is the internet, so there is a possibility that it might be fake.  Also, the protests, at least for now, seem to be a rather motley collection of misinformed kids, so not all of them may be in favor of a “central plan.”  At any rate, here are the demands, item by  item, with my comments after each…

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Comment:  Er, so, we are going to make flipping burgers, working at a convenience store, or bagging groceries and $20 dollar an hour job?  Who is going to be able to stay in business in the face of those expenses?  How much more are we, especially the poor, going to have to pay for things to pay for those wages?  Or will it be the mother of minimum wage increases?  Like the others, it will cause job losses, but at that size, the job losses will be staggering.  Then, of course, other nations would retaliate, and place tariffs on our exports, costing jobs.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Comment:  Where do I begin?  Handing money to Wall Street investors?  They want to hand money to the government, have them fritter away 50-70% of it, and then ration care?  Does it occur to them that Medicaid and Medicare already lose $100,000,000,000 a year in fraud now?  How much more would it be if the goverment ran all of it?

Also, let’s go back to the posts I had done on the NHS in the UK…

Rationing Your Life Away

The Results of Socilaized Medicine: Do we Really Want What Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are Selling?

Does Single Payer Kill?

Does Single Payer Kill? Why Yes, Yes it Does

Check out the links, they are chock full of death-all caused by single payer, but that won’t happen here, right?

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Comment:  If it’s anything like demand number one, expect even more job losses as businesses won’t be able to stay in business.

Demand four: Free college education.

Comment: Why even do it?  Considering what the other items mentioned already would do, there would be no jobs.  And, even if were were living in  a parallel universe where economic reality does not exist, why work and study to get a degree when the high school burnout can schlep slurpies at the local 7-11, and still make as much money as you?

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Comment:  Given the administration’s rousing success with other green projects, expect this to fail fast.  Without fossil fuels, nothing gets made, nothing moves, and we are back in the 18th to early 19th century.  Get used to pulling a plow kids!

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Comment: Didn’t Obama do that for “shovel ready” projects a couple years back?  And how did that work out for ya?

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

Comment: Natural flow of rivers means removing all flood control projects, locks and dams on rivers, and the like.  No more hydro-electric power, we’ll see massive floods, ruined farmland, and no power.  That, and given our experience with other government projects, each tree will likely cost $1,000,000, and will likely die within a month of being planted.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Comment:  Er, you can’t demand an amendment from the Constitution.  It starts in Congress, and the States have to ratify it.  Also, beware of their wording.  When leftists say “equal,” they usually mean preferential.  And they sure as hell don’t prefer you!

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Comment: After everything that will happen as a result of the first eight demands, there will be nothing here to come to!  No jobs, no power, just a bunch of useful idiots pulling plows.  (I assume they will have to pull the plows themselves, as the animal rights folks will likely ban “animal slavery.”)

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Comment:  On the surface, I really don’t have a problem with this.  In all actuality, these folks really show their naivete here.  It would be the left that wouldn’t want this-too much of a chance of exposing the voter fraud.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Comment:  OK, let’s pretend for a moment that the financial system even survived this.  Would anyone ever get credit again?  No bank would extend it-why take the risk of being totally ripped off again?  Then again, there wouldn’t be anything to buy or sell anyway.  Simply put, it strikes me that some college kids don’t want to repay their student loans.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Comment:  Deadbeats want to hide their tracks?  Then again, after number eleven, there would be no credit anyway, or an economy, so this is rather redundant.  And, what would we do without all of those snappy freecreditreport.com commercials?

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

Comment:  In other words, unions goons can beat you down at any time.  Want them to stop?  Sign the freaking card!  Then again, there will be no jobs to unionize after the first twelve demands, so this too is rather redundant.  Unless that us, the useful idiots pulling plows want a union.  I hope the thugs swing for the fences!

These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

Comment:  Yeah, this isn’t a demand, but it’s so asinine, I couldn’t let it go.  First off, there will be no jobs…period.  I can only foresee that the useful idiots pulling plows will quickly realize that living in a primitive, agrarian society is REALLY hard work, and will seek to import cheap labor to do it for them.  After all, in the liberal zone, sacrifices and sanctions are only for the rest of us, not the lefties.  All I know is that they damn well better pay the immigrants $20 an hour.  That will be hard, considering that there will no longer be a fiscal system.

But, these kids aren’t living in reality anyway.  Sadly, they want us all to live in the fubar’d fantasy world.

You’re Either a Tool or a Target… Which is it?

Share

Today I had a discussion with a few friends about how easy people can be swayed when they’re not informed.  One of my friends jumped into the conversation and said people are either tools or targets and it stuck with me.  So what did he mean by this?  Let’s take a look at the current Medicare and debt ceiling debate.  The left is counting on the uninformed to be swayed by their scare tactics.  They use these tactics to advance their agenda and it’s quite effective.  Think about this for a moment.  Global warming alarmists have been using these same scare tactics for years.  They proclaimed that there was some sort of global cataclysmic event just over the horizon if we didn’t modify our behavior.  They marched out so called experts to show us all the mounting evidence that supported their position.  Their goal was to rally the uninformed behind their banner and for the most part they were successful.  They gained the steadfast support of the UN, major corporations, and even our elected officials.  We were all doomed if we didn’t change our ways and the uninformed were carrying the global warming banner.  We were well on our way to passing cap and trade, that was until emails revealed that the data was being fudged.  This so call evidence the global warming alarmists put forward was nothing more than a lie and the uninformed took the bait hook, line and sinker.  They became tools for the left because they chose to remain uninformed and refused to look at different points of view on the subject.  These uninformed tools for the left are the most dangerous sort because they truly know not what they do.

I used the global warming case in point because in my opinion it’s one of the best examples of how the left uses the uninformed to advance their agenda.  These misguided souls are nothing more than tools; tools to be used by left or any radical group who tosses a few $100 dollars words their way and some skewed data.  They lack understanding.  They lack understanding of our history, our founders, our free market system, liberty, freedom, and the major issues that impact each of us.  I’ve written on this topic many times and I will continue to write on it because I feel it’s fundamental in understanding the strategy of the left and in some cases the right.  Both sides have successfully used this simple yet effective strategy over and over again and quite frankly I’m tired of it.  I’m tired of seeing good people maneuvered into a position to be used by them.  I often wonder when the people are going wise up.  When are they going to see these tactics for what they are?  Perhaps the answer is as simple as they simply don’t want to be informed.  After all when one is informed and engaged everything changes.

The first thing that changes is your eyes are opened and you understand things with a level of clarity that many will never know.  The next thing that changes is you become dangerous to the status quo.  You become the thing they abhor; something that gets under their skin.  You become a target because you see through their plans and schemes and you are threat to them.  This is the power of an informed voter.  An informed voter cannot be swayed so easily and sucked into the scare tactic trap.  An informed voter knows Paul Ryan’s proposal to reform Medicare is reasonable and long overdue.  And informed voter realizes the debt ceiling has more to do about out of control spending than the amount of revenue the government takes in.  These scare tactics rarely work on an informed voter and the left knows this.

This is why the MSM and the left aggressively target those from the right who can clearly define and convey the conservative message in an understandable manner.  When a voter is informed on the issues they tend to become passionate and engaged.  Their resolve to advance sound values and practical solutions is unwavering.  They’re not only willing to run the race; but finishing it becomes a necessity and this scares the hell out of the establishment.  If they can’t be used as a tool then they must be targeted.  And this is how things roll in our current political environment.  Just ask “Joe the Plumber“.

You can find additional posts on the how the left uses the uninformed when it comes to polling data atConservative Hideout 2.0 and The Other McCain.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

Obama's Hypocritical Middle East Policy

Share

Who bows to foreign dictators, and wants to weaken the only stable democracy in the Middle East?  President Obama, so it would seem. The president has been pursuing what I see to be an inconsistent and hypocritical foreign policy, especially where the Middle East in concerned.

First, we had what was commonly referred to as the “World Apology Tour.”  As you recall, the POTUS traveled far and wide, apologizing for the US’s actions in the world.  Of course, we have made mistakes, like any other nation, but by in large, our actions have typically been done with the intent of protecting ourselves, and helping others.

Then came the 2009 student revolt in Iran.  This could have been the precursor of the “Arab Spring.”  However, as the Iranian dictatorship was slaughtering the students, Obama did not even say anything of substance.  As a result, the regime stayed in control, and has continued it’s nuclear program.  While this might be considered an “opportunity lost,” it reveals a great deal about team Obama’s world view.

But there is more.  As the “Arab Spring,” or as I like to call it, “The Tyrant Exchange Program,” started to emerge, team Obama seemed stuck in the mud in terms of a response.  We had the National Security Adviser, James Clapper getting his information from media reports, and claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “secular” organization.  Also, the opposition not so politely refused to meet with Hillary Clinton. And now, it appears that the Muslim Brotherhood will be wielding some power in the new “democratic” Egypt.  And did I mention the attacks on Christians, and the stated antisemitism?

Then, the Libyan dictator, Muammar al-Gaddafi came under fire from a protest movement in that nation.  As that regime started to brutally put down that rebellion, the President and his team said little and did nothing.  In fact, weeks went by without any meaningful response.  Then, just as the insurgency was about to be put down, President Obama ordered cruise missile and air strikes against Gaddafi’s forces.  After a brief period of attacks, NATO took over, and has shown themselves to be inept.  At the time of this writing, Gaddafi is still in power, and there has been a lack of reporting in the MSM about the current status of the insurrection.

More recently, the Syrian regime has been rocked by protests.  That government has been most brutal in putting these down as well.  However, there has been little in terms of a response from the administration.

As far as I can tell, there are a few things here that are hypocritical. One is that Obama has taken action against Gaddafi, albeit after a long period of inaction.  In the same vein, he did nothing against Iran, and has done nothing against Syria.  Frankly, Gaddafi was an easy target.  He had a third rate military, with mostly Soviet era weaponry.  Syria, and more so Iran, have more competent military forces.  So, he dithered regarding Libya, but acted in the end to look strong.  At the same time, he’s done nothing against the stronger, and arguably more murderous nations.

In a sense, these are the actions of a bully.  The standard school yard bully looks for the weak.  They’ll go after the bookish kid, and not the fullback for the football team.  In similar fashion Obama picked the weak target, and left the stronger ones unmolested.

But that’s not all.  Last week, Obama suggested that Israel accept a return to 1967 borders as a condition for a peace agreement with the “Palestinians.”  Considering that Israel is surrounded by people determined to exterminate them, and that modern weaponry reach much farther now, 1967 borders would make Israel’s defense next to impossible.  The irony here is that Israel is the regions only functioning democracy.  Gays, Christians, Jews, and even Arabs live there, and do so without fear of being killed by their government.  However, it appears that the Obama administration has made the decision to side with the “Palestinians.”

I think this at least displays the mindset of the left, as well as their naivete.  To assume that Islamic radicals will not take over the new and unstable “democracies” in the Middle East, and that the Palestinians will suddenly abandon their stated desire to ethnically cleanse the Holy Land, displays a great deal of wishful thinking.  Then again, given the fact that the left is not bothering to hide it’s antisemitism, perhaps this is intentional.  In the end, history will answer that question.  Hopefully, history will remember that Israel survived, and that the Obama administration was dispatched in the 2012 elections, ending his awkward and destructive policies, both here and abroad.

America Needs an Enema. 1600 Pennsylvania is the Place

Share

It matters not where Barak Obama was born, raised and educated; he is not an American. Perhaps I should say that he, like Michelle, only became proud of America when he was elected. Before that his history is one of consorting with every communist, leftist Educator, and anti-American leftover from the 60s. He spent his time with some of the most divisive minds in this country. So while he lives in America he is not for America. Barry is more concerned what our enemies think that what Americans think. He truly believes he can talk the world to sleep. Honestly, he has gone far with his ramblings.

Listen to what the man says and his beliefs are clear. For months, soon to be years, there have been numerous bloggers, pundits, historians, and ordinary Americans sounding the alarm that this man is a one man wrecking ball out to tear down America and rebuild it in his image. Still a large number of Americans are unable to hear the crap in what he says.

For days now, doctor’s offices and insurance companies have been inundated with phone calls wanting the “free O’bamacare”. These people only heard free. They never heard anything but what they wanted to hear and that was “ObamaCrap”. It make many weak in the knees and others into zombies: crap zombies.

To be fair all politicians weigh in heavy on the “full-o-crap” meter but this guy takes the prize. What he lacks in integrity he makes up for in deception. To this day I do not know of one single promise that he has kept to the American people. The special interests groups that forked over nearly a billion dollars to get him elected, now those folks he has honored his promises, which leads me to my point… America needs a good Enema.

A good flushing of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue would do us all a lot of good and the sooner the better. In truth I have been happy to see the White House cleaned out a couple of times but the folks living in there now belong in a country where the citizenry are unawares. Barry needs to find a country:

  • Where everyone will bow before him and never disagree.
  • Where Barry can control everyone and everything
  • Where the process doesn’t matter just his majesty’s wishes
  • Where he can create division and discontent
  • Where there is a 24hour TV channel showing nothing but flattering photos of him
  • Where no journalists will ever tell the truth about him
  • Where citizens think he is wonderful and possibly “THE ONE”
  • Where government officials throw out their values to appease him
  • Where money can be printed and spent willy-nilly
  • Where the only rich person is Barry and a few of his fellow commies
  • Where laws are interpreted by “O” and only “O”
  • Where I would be arrested for writing this

Come to think of it, he has just about created that place! Better get the hot soapy water, the kit and some patriots that aren’t afraid of getting covered in crap. Oh yes! Don’t look for the Patriots on Capitol Hill. Most of them are busy regurgitating the crap they have been fed to their constituents.

Obama Abandons Insane US Nuke Policies: Ignores Sun Tzu and Demonstrates Lack of Understanding Again

Share

“To plan secretly, to move surreptitiously, to foil the enemy’s intentions and balk his schemes, so that at last the day may be won without shedding a drop of blood”– that is how Sun Tzu described how to win in warfare. Further, Sun Tzu wrote this about the Art of War:

It is through the dispositions of an army that its condition may be discovered. Conceal your dispositions, and your condition will remain secret, which leads to victory,; show your dispositions, and your condition will become patent, which leads to defeat

One of my degrees is in International Relations and just recently I was talking to some of my high school students about the United States policies with regard to the use of nukes. The one that they were the most fascinated by was the policy of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD).

Via wikipedia, Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two opposing sides would effectively result in the destruction of both the attacker and the defender. In theory, by adopting this policy in which your nation is prepared to destroy everything if attacked, it will deter your enemy from attacking you since he’ll be terrified that you might just be insane enough to blow up everything rather than just lose the war. The strategy is effectively a form of Nash equilibrium, in which both sides are now forced to entertain the possibly that the worst possible outcome of a nuclear attack- the nuclear annihilation of the world- is now on the table if one side attacks the other.

I’ve always felt that MAD is an insane policy- but its very insanity is what made it work- I mean, no country in their right mind would be willing to destroy the world rather than just get nuked. But a nutty one might, and you have to respect that crazy will to win, and in this case, the fear of MAD just may have played a role in deterring nuclear attacks on the United States during the height of the Cold War.

After 9/11, the United States adopted a similar policy towards nations that might support or encourage terrorist attacks on our own nation, stating that we would respond with nuclear attacks if any nation in the world attacked us using chemical or biological weapons. Once that genie gets out of the bottle, it will be hard to put back in, and terrorist groups around the world would be unleashing deadly chemical and biological weapons on our innocent civilians here. Bush said that if a nation helped or supported something like that, they would be wiped out.

That policy was an insane and totally disproportionate response- but that’s why it works. Nations know that we would never nuke them if they gave a terrorist group some chemical to release into the water supply of a major city, killings thousands… but maybe we would. Maybe we’re just that crazy, especially with a wild card cowboy like Bush at the helm. Americans are nutty- the whole world knows this- and don’t think rationally or act normal like other countries. Perhaps we might use those nukes.

Except now, we won’t. Faced with no threats, under pressure from no one, with no barbarian invaders on the horizon, our nation willingly disarms and lays down our arms and our threats and our deterrents in a sad and stupid belief that this will lead to a better world. The threat of MAD saved millions, and the threat of wild American nukes lobbed at terrorist nations might have saved thousands, but now, that threat is off the table.

“We’re a nice sane nation just like any other nation, no different than France or Germany, and now you can beat us soundly if you just test our defenses,” we now tell our enemies. “Chemical and biological attack us- it will make us upset and we’ll think long and hard about it, call for a months long review, and then allow a smaller attack than the ones that the Republicans want, but will pull out soon,” is our new policy. “We’re not insane, we’re totally rational, and thus, rational calculations about our political will to do what is done will hold true.” Our new administration announces.

President Obama is expected to announce soon that he will restrict US nuclear weapons use, even in self-defense. According to the Times Online, he will announce the new doctrine that the US will no longer threat the use of nukes in response to biological or chemical attacks on our nation. President Obama wasn’t briefed on the U.S. nuclear-strike plans until some months after he had taken office, and when he found out about these policies that my high school students study, “he thought it was insane,” says sources. Soon after, he decided that nuclear weapons would be taken off the table and no longer be an option that we would consider as a deterrent, and now is telling anyone who will listen this new policy change.

Obama is hoping that he will be showered with accolades and the world will all say what a great person he is. But the truth of the matter is that he made this decision with very little thought or understanding of warfare. So what if you think it is insane and you pull the option off the table- that’s nice. Just don’t tell anyone about it. Then the ‘insane’ option is gone, the world is a nicer place, but the deterrent remains. The only reason you go ahead and announce this policy change is not to improve or help the security of the United States, but to lessen and hurt the security of the United States in order to be showered with praise by other world leaders, world leaders who might possibly mean the United States harm and no longer be deterred by our crazy nuclear policies.

Obama has once again made the world just a little more unsafe for democracy and showed once again why the American people really need to be more careful about who they elect President.
