“America’s national security cannot be entrusted to left-wing Democrats.” –– Richard Winchester
“Weakness is policy, and the world’s dictatorships have taken note. The only question now is how much more damage can be done before this disastrous presidency finally comes to an end.” – The Commentator
“Russian troops are invading Ukraine and we have no response. I suppose the Pentagon has more important things to worry about – like hair and makeup for our gay military.” – Allen West
Pick a topic, any topic. Barack Obama and his “progressive” cohorts have been wrong about it. Global warming? “Arab Spring”? Stimulus? Benghazi? Syria? The “reset” with Russia? Obamacare? His is a braintrust that has achieved perfection — they’re always wrong.
Why a population of theoretically intelligent citizens continues to trust with their country’s future left-wing politicians who have proved themselves monumentally unqualified to govern is a question best answered by a qualified psychotherapist or two (if such things exist). “You Bet Your Life” should be remembered as a TV show from the ’50s, not a description of America in the second decade of the 21st century. Even such a formerly staunch Democratic media ally as the Washington Post has come to realize an eternal truth: Nations will always respect strength and take advantage of weakness.
FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces … Unfortunately, Russian President Vladimir Putin has not received the memo on 21st-century behavior. Neither has China’s president, Xi Jinping … These men will not be deterred by the disapproval of their peers, the weight of world opinion or even disinvestment by Silicon Valley companies.
Nonetheless, the leftists who have commandeered the federal government are busy stripping our military down to a few bleached and transgendered bones:
While Russia invades Ukraine, as Islamic terrorist factions plot the West’s destruction, our service members at Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan, are being treated to a gay and lesbian drag show … Thanks to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the military’s longstanding policy towards gays in the military, the military has seen an influx of gay marriage ceremonies and other events that celebrate the alternative lifestyle.
[…] a combination of the Obama Administration’s policy decisions and budget cuts mandated by the Sequester — the idea for which originated in Obama’s White House — would leave the U.S. military smaller and weaker than it has been in 74 years. The National Guard will also be reduced. Hagel went on to say that the U.S. would no longer be the world’s foremost military power. He also noted, apparently with equanimity, that reducing U.S. military capacity would likely entail risks to our military personnel and to the nation …
Once the budgetary savagery Hagel outlined for the military is in place, the U.S. will have a Navy with the fewest ships at sea since before World War I, the smallest Air Force ever, and an Army and Marine Corps smaller than at any time since 1940. Weapons systems that would modernize and upgrade our military capability will be canceled, and older weapons systems, such as the A-10, will be eliminated.
In addition to severely reducing America’s conventional military capability, Obama has drastically curtailed the country’s nuclear weapons capacity.
Rank ignorance or malice aforethought? Allen West has no doubt which:
“Is Obama doing this intentionally? There can be no other answer than yes. Why? Because just like Bill Clinton, spending on domestic welfare nanny-state programs is more important to progressive socialists — after all, they want power, they need votes.”
Obama promised his supporters “fundamental transformation,” and he’s providing it. Even Democrats will live to regret it.
