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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Yet President Huge Chavez has stated that,
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
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

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

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

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
Yet denouncement seems to be the only thing that the Obama administration is good at (most of the time, see below on
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
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.
In March of 2009, President Obama reached across the oceans and offered Iran the “promise of a new beginning.”
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
Yet what was Obama’s response? For the first few days, not even a condemnation was issued.
Political debate? There was no political debate. This was outright tyranny and oppression!
It wasn’t until outrage started growing within the
Perhaps the reason he did not immediately respond was the result of the following:
Yet as a result of his “condemnation,”
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
Surprisingly, unlike other campaign promises, this is one that he has kept. On

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.
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).
Ahhh… appeasement in action!
Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani knew of Obama’s stance. Unfortunately, this is another prediction that has come true.
Daniel Pipes has done a wonderful job detailing the betrayal of
However, former President Carter seems pleased.
Although never a true ally, after the cold war the relations between our two nations had warmed considerably, until now.

What was the administration’s response?
Recently, Joe Biden gave his opinion of this still strong nation.
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
