Why a Manchurian President? Because how could a President possibly be this incompetent and so weaken the United States purely by accident!
No President, no matter how incompetent his administration might appear to be, could reach the level of domestic and foreign policy ineptitude achieved by Barack Obama purely by accident.
And if by some far-fetched stretch of the imagination they could in one term, how could they possibly be elected to a second?
The United States and our allies now face a world that is incredibly more dangerous since the time Barack Obama started his mission six or so years ago that it is almost unfathomable to conceive.
Yet given where we now find ourselves, our Commander-in-Chief either didn't notice what was happening, noticed and chose to ignore it or knew what was happening and chose to help it along.
ISIS, or ISIL, could have been stopped in its tracks before it gained the level of power, traction and funding it now has. Syria, Iran, Gaza, Russia and our southern border with Mexico could have also been dealt with so that they would not have been at the critical mass we find them at today.
And yet, judging by our President's recent statements from his oceanside retreat, he still seems unwilling or unable to grasp the magnitude of the national security danger that the country faces from enemies sworn to our outright destruction.
And damn if he won't make the same mistake in Afghanistan he made by unilaterally pulling all of our troops out of Iraq!
But whenever we speak bout his President and his strategic plan for our country, that is where the situation gets complicated.
Was the swap of five extremely dangerous Taliban for one deserting soldier done because it was a good deal for the US or to unleash extremist fighters back into the fight?
Was the Syrian redline placed down and then ignored because showing weakness was part of the Obama foreign policy and national security plan?
Is pretending that a soon-to-be nuclear Iran doesn't exist a sound national security strategy?
Was whispering in the ear of a Russian Prime Minister that after the election he would have more flexibility an attempt to strengthen the hand of the United States or to weaken it?
Was telegraphing the pullout of US troops from Iraq designed to create a stronger Iraq or a leadership vacuum that all but this President seemed to understand would be filled by terrorist groups?
Is having an open southern border so that hungry children and terrorists alike can find asylum in this county another way that Barack Obama feels that the US will be made safer?
And on it goes!
From a January 2014 article at TPC titled, 'Barack Obama's insidious master plan for the United States?', some points were made that seem even more relevant today! Here are some excerpts:
'...Basically this President and his administration have been given carte blanche to do whatever it wants while the majority of the American people follow dutifully along like lambs being led to the slaughter.
In pre-WW2 Germany the Jews there did not learn until it was too late that the leader of the country possessed an evil that no rational human being could ever even imagine was possible to exist.
In other words part of what makes us a free and functioning society is that we have some level of faith and trust in those who lead us.
On the one hand that is a good thing as long as there is reliable oversight by the systems in place that function to keep leadership in line and operating within legislated and prescribed limits.
But, on the other hand, it can prove to be extremely dangerous when those systems in place to maintain adequate checks and balances for some reason cease to function.
Whether it is due to a complicit media, legislative bodies that alter rules that have been in place for a long period of time or a Commander-in-Chief who is willing to circumvent the normal process in order to get what he wants, the entire societal structure could be at risk...'
The Blind Electorate
But one man or political party could not achieve what this one has achieved all on their own.
It also has required an electorate so blind, lazy and willing to be led by the nose by a complicit media, who never bothered to ask the questions that needed to be asked about who this inexperienced and basically unknown community organizer was.
He came to power during a time when many Americans were looking for 'Change' and then bought into the Obama mantra hook, line and sinker!
Even after a first term that was filled with inconsistencies an outright lies this same blind electorate was willing to go for him again.
Remember the quote that has been ascribed to Joseph Goebbels and decide if to some extent it describes the political situation that our country faces today.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Knowing this, in the 2014 mid-term and 2016 presidential elections, get off of your ass and do something about voting into Congress and the White House representatives of the people who actually love the country and who will do what it takes to put us back onto the right course!
