Mr. Obama gave an ethereal, other-worldly, pie-in-the-sky address to the U.N. Wednesday that was not based in reality. We can expect another this afternoon. Mr. Obama declared war on war as if anyone who wants to attack us and others was actually listening.
He quoted radical Islamist Sheikh bin Bayyah: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.”
He gave his usual insulting shout out to the Israelis and told them to engage in the “hard work of peace” which to him means negotiating with terrorists. He said this to people who have lived with terror for decades and have tried to win peace.
“The situation in Iraq, Syria and Libya should cure anyone of the illusion that this conflict is the main source of problems in the region; for far too long, it has been used in part as a way to distract people from problems at home. And the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. But let’s be clear: the status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable. We cannot afford to turn away from this effort – not when rockets are fired at innocent Israelis, or the lives of so many Palestinian children are taken from us in Gaza.”
Ironically, Obama is the one who ruined Libya and gave up the peace in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the one who wouldn’t help Syrians and Iranians. He is the one who insisted that Morsi was the rightfully-elected dictator. He tried to keep the wannabe dictator installed in Honduras.
Obama made it clear we will not be a presence in the Middle East or come to anyone’s rescue. They’re on their own. The extremists are their problem and we will help but they have the Middle East leaders have to get together and solve it.
I’m sure Iran will be jumping at the bit. If they all get together, it will be to get us and Israel.
It is clear from his speech that Mr. Obama is a believer, not in the U.S. but in the U.N., an organization filled with liars and thieves, dictators and criminals, socialists, communists and Islamo-Fascists.
Mr. Obama, however, prioritizes. He worries about the “terrorist” tea party people and lets the U.N. thugs skate.
He’s not a fan of our Bill of Rights but he does like the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights which is a thoroughly socialist doctrine:
The United States will never shy away from defending our interests, but nor will we shrink from the promise of this institution and its Universal Declaration of Human Rights – the notion that peace is not merely the absence of war, but the presence of a better life.
The world is under the iron thumb of totalitarianism everywhere and he said this: “The ranks of member states has more than tripled, and more people live under governments they elected.”
He did his usual attack Bush as if Democrats had nothing to do with anything: “And the world economy continues to strengthen after the worst financial crisis of our lives.”
In his world, everything is great: “I often tell young people in the United States that this is the best time in human history to be born, for you are more likely than ever before to be literate, to be healthy, and to be free to pursue your dreams.”
His cure for the world’s ills – taxes!
“Each of these problems demands urgent attention. But they are also symptoms of a broader problem – the failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world. We have not invested adequately in the public health capacity of developing countries. Too often, we have failed to enforce international norms when it’s inconvenient to do so. And we have not confronted forcefully enough the intolerance, sectarianism, and hopelessness that feeds violent extremism in too many parts of the globe.”
People aren’t supposed to notice that “investments” are taxes. We are going to tax our way into better health, the obliteration of Ebola (his new crisis), and that will change the climate of the world and everyone’s attitude.
He’s a collectivist: “We can reaffirm our collective responsibility to confront global problems, or be swamped by more and more outbreaks of instability. For America, the choice is clear. We choose hope over fear. We see the future not as something out of our control, but as something we can shape for the better through concerted and collective effort.”
He trusts the worthless U.N.: “…big nations and small – must meet our responsibility to observe and enforce international norms.”
Mr. Obama won’t lift a finger to help Ukraine outside of meaningless sanctions but he spews the right words:
“This is a vision of the world in which might makes right – a world in which one nation’s borders can be redrawn by another, and civilized people are not allowed to recover the remains of their loved ones because of the truth that might be revealed. America stands for something different. We believe that right makes might – that bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones; that people should be able to choose their own future.”
“These are simple truths, but they must be defended. America and our allies will support the people of Ukraine as they develop their democracy and economy. We will reinforce our NATO allies, and uphold our commitment to collective defense. We will impose a cost on Russia for aggression, and counter falsehoods with the truth. We call upon others to join us on the right side of history – for while small gains can be won at the barrel of a gun, they will ultimately be turned back if enough voices support the freedom of nations and peoples to make their own decisions.”
He speaks with a big mouth and walks very softly.
Pope Francis – more of a realist – recently said, we are currently engaged in a piecemeal Third World War and this is what Obama said today: “As we speak, America is deploying our doctors and scientists – supported by our military – to help contain the outbreak of Ebola and pursue new treatments.”
Obama let Iran know they can keep their enriched Uranium: “We can reach a solution that meets your energy needs while assuring the world that your program is peaceful.”
We are going to redistribute our wealth to the world: “America is committed to a development agenda that eradicates extreme poverty by 2030. We will do our part – to help people feed themselves; power their economies; and care for their sick.”
We should be poor in no time.
Climate change extremism is what he cares about: “But we can only succeed in combating climate change if we are joined in this effort by every major power.”
He doesn’t believe in borders or that they should exist: “If we lift our eyes beyond our borders – if we think globally and act cooperatively – we can shape the course of this century as our predecessors shaped the post-World War II age. ”
Too bad most people want to live in sovereign nations and don’t share his delusion.
Terrorism: “But in this century, we have faced a more lethal and ideological brand of terrorists who have perverted one of the world’s great religions. ”
Actually, they are following the Koran.
He won’t say “radical Islam” because it doesn’t exist in his mind.
Again, he goes back to the collective of which he hopes to make us a part: “Collectively, we must take concrete steps to address the danger posed by religiously motivated fanatics, and the trends that fuel their recruitment.”
He thinks his words will accomplish this: “Second, it is time for the world – especially Muslim communities – to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL.”
He lives in another universe if he thinks that is going to happen. His ideology is not grounded or based on reality.
He brought up the thug in Ferguson and belittled our nation:
“I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within our own borders. This is true. In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.”
He is unaware we are living in a Republic and he said this: “Because we address our differences in the open space of democracy – with respect for the rule of law; with a place for people of every race and religion; and with an unyielding belief in the ability of individual men and women to change their communities and countries for the better.”
This is a collectivist who does NOT respect our laws. He would be dangerous enough as a university professor but he’s a lot worse as the backbencher of the United States.
Barack Obama praised a radical cleric during his speech – Abdullah bin Bayyah. Bayyah is Vice President of a group that issued Fatwas against Israel and the United States.
