Unfortunate Predictions are Becoming Reality – Part 2

This part 2 of a series dedicated to revealing the policies of the Obama Administration.


Previously, I discussed the push for centralized health care. In this article, I will discuss President Obama’s foreign relation policies.


Prediction #2:


2. - Patty Cake with the criminals of the world: Yup! Obama promised to have nice friendly talks with the psychos out there who have vowed to destroy us.


We are all aware of Obama’s promise to approach dictators and international thugs with the premise that dialog instead of sanctions or condemnations will improve relations between our respective nations.


With that in mind, let us take a look at a few examples that have taken place after his assent to the highest office in the United States.


Venezuela


In April of 2009, President Obama met with the President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. During that well publicized meeting, Obama was presented with a gift.


In front of photographers, Chavez gave Obama a copy of "The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent," a book by Eduardo Galeano, which chronicles U.S. and European economic and political interference in the region.


Here is an excellent source of information on the background of this particular author.


The meeting was well publicized, but what was not was that Obama actually had lengthy discussions with Chavez afterwards.


What has not been reported is that Obama, leaving his advisers behind, held lengthy private conversations with Chavez where only an interpreter was present.


It is not known what occurred in the secret talks. But sources in Caracas say that Chavez has become fascinated with Obama, seeking to understand the new US president and the forces around him, partly with advice from Brazil's president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.


The White House attempted to down play the meeting by accusing President Chavez of being a media hog who will do everything possible to grab its attention.


And grab its attention he has indeed done, at least in his own country.


Some Venezuelan television channels began altering their programs Thursday, citing fears of penalties under a new law restricting violence and sexual content over the airwaves.


In addition,


The law, which includes 31 articles, requires at least 50 percent of a radio station's programming to be Venezuelan music and at least 85 percent of its commercials to be Venezuelan-made.


Yet President Huge Chavez has stated that,


… they (he and his supporters) are committed to freedom of expression. They say the changes will ensure more responsible programming and television that is suitable for children and adolescents.


On the surface, this seems reasonable. However, freedom of the press is one that citizens who adore liberty are staunch proponents of. If one were to take a closer examination of Venezuela and its turbulent politics, one would notice that this is in reality a way to prevent reports of political unrest within the city.


Thus, with claims of good intentions for his country’s youth, Chavez has removed media coverage of his opposition, effectively placing a strangle hold on what information can be released.


Yet, what has this to do with American policies? We can already see them in progress with the progressive alphabet media along with their cohorts at CNN and MSNBC. They have gone out of their way to portray patriotic Americans as violent, ignorant, racist and anti-free speech.


In addition, one of the strongest attacks made against her citizens, the media of the United States has provided itself as a free gift to the Obama administration which has used it to accuse his opponents everything from ignorant to un-American.


Noticing Obama’s policies, Hugo Chavez has


… called on President Barack Obama to continue what he is doing and head down the path of socialism.


Not content with one invitation, for the second time he


…has again urged President Barack Obama to adopt socialist principles to see the United States through the ongoing economic crisis.


It is interesting to note that there seems to have been a secret “alliance” formed between these two Presidents.

After the recent coup in Honduras where a corrupt leader was removed from power and exiled, President Obama has joined his voice with that of President Chavez in condemnation of this deed. He has gone on record stating that the United States (he and his cronies) will refuse to recognize the new government.


The Canada Free Press has an excellent article exposing this alliance which has caused outraged Honduran citizens to feel betrayed by the world’s one bastion of freedom.


Cuba


In May of 2008, Obama stated that policies towards Cuba would be based on the liberty provided to its citizens.


"My policy toward Cuba will be guided by one word: 'libertad,' " he said, using the Spanish word for liberty at an event celebrating Cuban Independence Day in Miami, Florida.


"The road to freedom for all Cubans must begin with justice for Cuba's political prisoners, the right of free speech, a free press, freedom of assembly, and it must lead to elections that are free and fair," Obama said. "That is my commitment.


"I won't stand for this injustice; you will not stand for this injustice, and together we will stand up for freedom in Cuba. That will be my commitment as president of the United States of America," he said.


It has now been one year and three months since the above comments were made. I ask you, what freedoms have Cuban been given? Castro has been succeeded by his brother Raul Castro. There were no free elections.


On February 24, 2008, Cuba’s legislature selected Raúl as President of the 31-member Council of State, a position that officially made him Cuba’s head of government and state.


Yet in April of 2009, Obama eased travel restrictions to this Caribbean island nation.


Obama believes that the change in U.S. policy will ultimately help bring about a more tolerant, democratic Cuban government, noted White House Latin American policy adviser Dan Restrepo.


I am forced to inquire as to how this will change the political reality of Cuba? The lifted restrictions only apply to Americans of Cuban descent. In effect, the only Americans of Cuban descent in this country are those who fled the communist nation and their descendents. What is to prevent Raul or any member of the governing body from apprehending them? How does this increase freedom?


Ramon Raul Sanchez has also asked another pointed question.


Ramon Raúl Sánchez, the founder of the Democracy Movement, a Miami-based exile group, echoed that sentiment. “We question the Cuban claim of respect for sovereignty when it is willing to talk to the United States,” he said, “but it is not willing to talk to its own people, who have asked to talk about a variety of serious issues.”

North Korea


The pariah on the Korean Peninsula has long been acknowledged as one of the most oppressive governments in the region, if not the world.


Led by their “Eternal President” Kim Il-sung, this nation has managed to starve its population while forcing them to exist in a perpetual state of terror.


It is well known that the demented leadership of this country relishes testing the resolve of America, especially when new leadership is elected.


Facing the first direct challenge to his administration by an emerging nuclear weapons state, President Obama declared Monday that the United States and its allies would “stand up” to North Korea, hours after that country defied international sanctions and conducted what appeared to be its second nuclear test.


Later when North Korea started shooting off its missiles and rockets as if they were fireworks, Obama once again denounced this rogue nation.


Yet denouncement seems to be the only thing that the Obama administration is good at (most of the time, see below on Iran). No new sanctions have been issued, and quite frankly, Kim has proven time and time again that they do not affect him in the least.


When the rogue government kidnapped two clueless reporters for the progressive cable news program, Current (which had Al Gore as one of its founders), what did Obama do? In reality, nothing.


However, former president Bill Clinton traveled to North Korea and effected their release. No details were given as to how this came about, but it does not take an incredible leap of imagination to realize that some concessions must have been made.


President Obama did his best to stay out of the limelight while this was going on, instead focusing his attention elsewhere. However, no reasonable person would be able to claim that this was done without his blessings.

North Korea has found that they can indeed influence policy decisions within the United States. They have discovered that, with impunity, they may fire their weapons anywhere and any time as well as abduct America’s citizens.


Iran


In March of 2009, President Obama reached across the oceans and offered Iran the “promise of a new beginning.”


President Barack Obama reached out to Iran on Friday -- the start of the Iranian New Year -- in a video message offering "the promise of a new beginning" that is "grounded in mutual respect."


… Obama said: "The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations. You have that right, but it comes with real responsibilities. And that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization."


Perhaps there is greatness in the Iranian people, as this was witnessed during the recent mass protests. The protests were in response to the obviously corrupt “elections” where the mullahs decided to keep the sociopath and blood thirsty “President” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in power.


During this revolt, the government cracked down on the press of all nations, forbidding them to leave their dwellings within the country. It also attempted to halt the freedom of its citizens from posting articles and videos on the internet.


The count is still unconfirmed, but it has been estimated that hundreds of its civilians have been murdered by their own government during this period of unrest. Many more now stand trial.


The full impact of the Iranian events was brought to life when a graphic video was taken on a cell phone and then smuggled on to the internet.


Neda Agha Soltan was murdered in broad daylight during one of the protests. The video of the event can be found here. Warning, this is quite graphic.


This would have been the perfect opportunity for the United States to step in and assist these patriots. The results of which might of been long lasting, and perhaps could have even resulted in more peaceful region.


Iran is a well known trainer, supplier and supporter for terrorists organizations around the world such as the well known Hezbollah “movement.”


Yet what was Obama’s response? For the first few days, not even a condemnation was issued.


Several analysts said on Monday the White House was in a no-win situation but the best option was to stand back rather inject U.S. views into the Iranian political debate.


Political debate? There was no political debate. This was outright tyranny and oppression!


It wasn’t until outrage started growing within the United States that he first “condemned” the Iranian regime for their actions.


Obama's Iran policy (had) received intense scrutiny amid growing concerns over Tehran's violent crackdown on street protests. The Iranian demonstrators believe the country's June 12 presidential election was a sham.


Perhaps the reason he did not immediately respond was the result of the following:


Iran today hailed an unprecedented direct appeal by the US president, Barack Obama, for better relations between the two countries, but urged the US to "realize its previous mistakes" as well as end sanctions and drop its support for Israel.


Yet as a result of his “condemnation,”


President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Saturday to make the U.S. regret its criticism of Iran's post-election crackdown and said the "mask has been removed" from the Obama administration's efforts to improve relations.


As it has been obvious to many outside of the Obama Administration, dialog with this nation’s despot rulers will not accomplish anything. Obama sacrificed the lives and freedom of the Iranian people in the “hope” of increased diplomatic relations with this rogue nation.


Other Arab Countries


When one considers President Obama’s attempt at diplomatic relations with the Arabic nations of the Middle-East, instantly one remembers a historical event.


For the first time in history, an American President bowed to a ruler of another nation. This was during a meeting with the King of Saudi Arabia.


Indeed, his first televised presidential speech was given on an Arabian network


Appeasement seems to be the rule of thumb as Obama attempts to “strengthen relationship” with the region’s Arab countries and the United States. He has gone so far as to state that the war on terror is over.


WASHINGTON (AFP) — President Barack Obama "declared an end" to his predecessor's "war on terror" and began to heal the US reputation abroad when he ordered the Guantanamo Bay prison to close, US editorialists wrote Friday.


Surprisingly, unlike other campaign promises, this is one that he has kept. On April 1, 2007,


In a strikingly bold speech about terrorism Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Illinois Sen. Barack Obama called not only for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, but a redeployment of troops into Afghanistan and even Pakistan — with or without the permission of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf.


In addition, he is the first president since Jimmy Carter to openly oppose the nation of Israel. More on this below.


America’s Allies


Great Britain and Israel have been one of the staunchest allies of the United States.


Although our nation started out with war against Great Britain (as well as the war of 1812), over time the bonds between our two nations have strengthened to that of a close friendship. This was solidified during WWI and WWII.


As for Israel, it owes its existence to divine providence that propelled the Unites States to be the first country to recognize its existence. From that time on, Israel has been under the protecting hand of God almighty.


As well, Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle-East, and has been a close ally of ours since its inception.

How has President Obama handled the United State’s relations with these two nations?


Downing Street officials discovered last night that Prime Minister would not, as had been widely reported, hold a joint press conference with President Obama after their talks at the White House today.


… British officials, denying any deliberate snub, said that a slightly more formal event planned in the Rose Garden after the meeting had been cancelled because the grounds of the White House are blanketed in snow.


After a working lunch with Mr Brown, Mr Obama will then head off to make a speech at the Department of the Interior before meeting a delegation at the Boy Scouts of America, the White House said. If Mr Brown wanted to hold a press conference, he would have to do so across town at the British Embassy. (emphasis mine)


Upon meeting the Queen of England for the first time, Obama decided to save his bows for someone else. Instead, he gave her a gift.


The president, who was accompanied by the first lady, gave Her Majesty an iPod loaded with video and photographs of the queen's 2007 visit to Jamestown, Richmond and Williamsburg, Va.


He also gave her a songbook signed by composer Richard Rodgers.


Somehow unknown to him, the Queen already owned an iPod. Hopefully this was an upgrade and actually worked (unlike the DVD’s he gave to the Prime Minister).


As for Israel, Obama is following the advice of his new friends.


"Unless the new U.S. administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the U.S.-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk," said Turki, a former Saudi intelligence chief and former ambassador to the United States and Britain.


Ahhh… appeasement in action!


Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani knew of Obama’s stance. Unfortunately, this is another prediction that has come true.


Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani ripped Sen. Barack Obama as "ambiguous" in his stand on support for Israel, miles from the convention hall where the Democrats are celebrating the near-nominee.


Daniel Pipes has done a wonderful job detailing the betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration. I recommend you read his article for complete disclosure.


However, former President Carter seems pleased.


Carter praised Obama's speech in which he called for a "new beginning" in ties between Washington and the Islamic world "as one that was committed to peace, harmony, cooperation."


Russia


Although never a true ally, after the cold war the relations between our two nations had warmed considerably, until now.


Seeing the direction that the United States has taken down the road to socialism, former president and now Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin warned the United States of the follies associated with pursuing this destructive path. As a former KJB agent, one would assume that he is knowledgeable on this subject.


Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”.


What was the administration’s response?


In the first official visit to Russia, Barack Obama (his name in Russia, interestingly means "barracks" барак) has continued the tradition of his cabinet in making unwitting stupidities and unrecognized insulting gestures.


From Hillery's misnamed button (what there are no native Russian speakers in the US?) to Obama ditching Prime Minister Putin for dinner to go hang out, with his family, at the exclusive club O2 in Moscow, where oligarchs bring their wenches, not their wives…


Recently, Joe Biden gave his opinion of this still strong nation.


In his interview to the Wall Street Journal (it is not clear whether it was made before or after lunch) references were made to Russia's banking system which he claimed would not last 15 years, complete with an intrusive reference to Chechen "separatists" and Russia's falling population. In short, according to the Vice President, Russia is in such a state that the USA does not need to do deals to reach compromises. (emphasis mine)


Dear friends, it is clear that the path President Obama has chosen for this nation is one of appeasement of her worst enemies while snubbing the noses of our allies.


True freedom for the citizens of rogue nations does not concern him, and his hubris is so bold that both he and the Vice President feel no need to have diplomatic relations with a nation that is still a sleeping bear, a bear that can arise from its hibernation at any time it chooses.


Stay tuned for part three of my series, “Unfortunate Predictions are Becoming Reality” as I discuss how the Obama administration is working hard to redistribute the wealth of America’s populace.
