World News: For two years the Obama Administration preached the need for a radical change from the Bush Doctrine. Today Bush’s call to end “sixty years of Western nations excusing and accommodating the lack of freedom in the Middle East” comes home to roost.
On November 6, 2003 President George W. Bush delivered a seminal address on the need to strengthen democracy around the world and, in particular, to support its development in the Middle East. The critical passage in the speech, which received world-wide attention and was considered by many observers to be the most…
Who defines reality: there lies the difference between this Administration and the last. Obama is allowing events around the world to shape our policy. Bush understood that the U.S. can reshape, indeed remake, reality on its own.
The liberal internationalist view of the world, the U.S. is merely one among many–a stronger country, yes, but one that has to adapt itself to the will and the needs of “the international community.” That is why the Obama Administration is almost manic in pursuit of multilateral leadership as the Middle East burns. No matter that they could not be enforced…
OBAMA BIGGEST SPENDER IN HISTORY
US News: President Obama, despite all his recent bravado about being bipartisan and cutting the deficit is the biggest tax and spend president in history.
Barack Obama’s speech on the budget yesterday proved conclusively that the man is a liar and a fraud. The Obama administration has pushed the government to the point of bankruptcy. The Obama administration has been the tax and spend ticket since it came to power. When, in the history of the world, has a government raised taxes during a recession? There’s a reason the answer to that question is: never.
“If they gave out Olympic medals for fiscal irresponsibility, President Obama would take the gold, silver and bronze,” Master said. “With his three years in office, he will have had the highest deficits ever recorded. And the highest of those deficits is now projected to come in 2012.” The official pointed to a faltering economy and the bipartisan stimulus package that passed last year for the record deficit.
As one economist said at the time of the stimulus proposal, “Let’s drop the euphemism of “stimulus package” and call this agreement by its proper name: “deficit spending.”“
World News: International Criminal Tribunal findings: Barack Obama guilty of war crimes
In the final opinion of the court, Judge Leftie Medina, rules against Bush.
Citing: Barack H. Obama, President of the United States and Commander -in-Chief of US military forces for serious crimes; waging a war of aggression on Libya, war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Libyan people, against the hopes and dreams of millions of voters; and the use of weapons of mass destruction; and on countries, in and around the region…
“The simple truth is that the current administration has squandered incredible opportunities to bring the world together, to promote peace in regions that have only known war, to encourage health in places that are ravaged with disease, to make us more secure by living up to our principles at home and abroad. The simple truth is that the policies of our current administration do not reflect what is great about America”. Medina is the latest global ruling to stick the knife into the US President. “Our greatest risk is not terrorism and it’s not Libya. Our greatest risk is a lack of…
US News: President Obama Cannot Protect Democracy by Destroying It.
Congress should immediately launch a truly bipartisan investigation into the administration’s role in the Afghanistan war abuses. If the Constitution and laws of the United States were broken, Congress should censure the president. And if the lies, the deceit and lawbreaking continue, Congress should take even more drastic action. Either we are a nation of laws and moral values or we are not. We cannot pick and choose which laws to abide by and which to ignore for the sake of…
This is the way atrocities are dealt with in Mr. Obama’s world of war. The higher-ups responsible for training, supervising and disciplining the troops – in other words, the big shots who presided over a system that ran shamefully amok – escape virtually unscathed.
In his arrogance, President Obama did not go to Congress or to the courts for permission (although he claims that he did tell select members of Congress what he was doing — as if that is enough). He sees himself above the law. As commander in chief, he believes he is not bound by the Constitution and…
Obama has continued many of the same programs started by Bush, all the while running up trillions in debt for domestic spending repaying the unions and special interest that got him elected. In a fair world the 24 hour news cycle would be filled with the following headlines:
- Obama lied about the reasons to go to war.
- Obama holding thousands of prisoners without charges, without legal representation and for an indefinite period of time.
- Obama is running secret prisons.
- Obama ignores the Geneva Convention.
- Obama treats detainees inhumanely. Allows troops to kill civilians.
- Obama uses the Patriot Act to pry into library records and lord knows what else.
- Obama illegally spying on TEA party activists.
- Obama tramples on the rights of citizens.
But then, we all know life isn’t fair. Not when you can buy one party with trillions in debt.
World News: From atop his balcony Colonel Qaddafi announced in a nationally televised address that “major combat operations in Libya have ended.“
“In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of the world. Our nation is proud!” Qaddafi told the thousands in the square below. Qaddafi also made a direct connection between the United States stepping down as world leader and success of his troops in the take over of Benghazi. With the war winding down in Libya, the U.S. has fled the “no-fly” zone, officially came…
“In the short term, we beat them, in the long term, we beat them,” he said.
The speech came after the last U.S. aircraft fled the skies over Tripoli and the sound of executions echoed through the Libyan capital. The gunfire appeared to signal a total collapse of the so-called U.S. Coalition. This latest victory came following a push by Qaddafi’s forces as they shelled rebels fleeing in the desert dunes outside a strategic eastern city earlier, and his snipers and tanks roamed the streets of the last major opposition-held city in the west.
US News: Americans — stunned out of silence by continuing lack of leadership — discover President Barack Obama has been missing for weeks.
Congressional leaders are demanding that Obama’s remaining brain trust issue a report to the joint houses on the current location and status of the President.
“I haven’t seen President Obama except on television. We used to see him a lot; I’d like him to come out from behind his desk and meet with the common folk.”
The White House would not comment on this story, and decided to just vote present. On the day after (not?) declaring war, panicky House members convened in the Capitol to discuss a post-Obama strategy, with some in attendance complaining about what they believed to be continued White House disengagement.
“We all pretty much knew for sure we were going to lose Libya,” one person in attendance told this reporter on Wednesday. “And yet, last night and this morning, we had absolutely no message from the White House…
