Just when we thought that the President could not become any more self-absorbed and pandering, we find he can after his address to the United Nations today. This literally could go down as the weakest address ever given by an American president at this forum. I stopped counting the “I”s, “me”s and “my”s after the first fifteen minutes. He went on and on pointing out to his new friends that he is doing everything they want without asking them for anything in return, ranging from closing Gitmo, stopping torture, ending the war in Iraq and destroying our nuclear arsenal. The President obviously was attempting to buy goodwill among the members, including the dictators. He is so very naive. These people will annihilate us the first chance they get. Obviously, based on the recent terror plot arrests, this country is still a target even under the leadership of Obama.
Obama continued to embellish the global warming lie blaming America for much of the trouble we are having with that. Bolivia’s president pointed the finger squarely at America as well as he blamed capitalism for the world’s woes and coming imminent destruction. Obama said, “More and more nations with nuclear weapons. Melting ice caps and ravaged populations. Persistent poverty and pandemic disease. I say this not to sow fear, but to state a fact: the magnitude of our challenges has yet to be met by the measure of our action.” Where is this happening? For the true items, they are occurring in countries lorded over by despots. And we cannot change them. Then the President quoted Roosevelt – his socialist hero.
The President went on to describe his idea for a new global order held up by four pillars: disarmament, promotion of peace and security, the preservation of the planet and a global economy that benefits everyone (read: socialism). The President obviously thinks that apologizing for America will get the world to follow our lead in these areas. He is so naive. Russia is ramping up their nuclear stockpile. Iran is starting to build a nuclear stockpile. North Korea has been test firing their nuclear arsenal. China is building their military. Our enemies are ramping up their efforts and he appears to be clueless to those facts. He also promised to reach some kind of Middle East peace agreement even as he proclaimed that America does not recognize the legitimacy of Israeli settlements.
The most asinine part of the speech addressed climate change. Even as scientists have debunked the myths surrounding global warming and world temperatures reveal that the planet is cooling, the President claimed, “The danger posed by climate change cannot be denied, and our responsibility to meet it must not be deferred. If we continue down our current course, every member of this Assembly will see irreversible changes within their borders. Our efforts to end conflicts will be eclipsed by wars over refugees and resources. Development will be devastated by drought and famine. Land that human beings have lived on for millennia will disappear. Future generations will look back and wonder why we refused to act – why we failed to pass on intact the environment that was our inheritance. That is why the days when America dragged its feet on this issue are over. We will move forward with investments to transform our energy economy, while providing incentives to make clean energy the profitable kind of energy. We will press ahead with deep cuts in emissions to reach the goals that we set for 2020, and eventually 2050. We will continue to promote renewable energy and efficiency – and share new technologies – with countries around the world. And we will seize every opportunity for progress to address this threat in a cooperative effort with the whole world.” No, Mr. President, future generations will look back and wonder what was so worth our giving up America’s freedom.
Here’s what I would say if I was president: “Screw you all! America is autonomous and we will not bear any nation that attacks us. We will share alliances with any country that agrees to be in alliance with us and proves that by helping us fight terrorism and despots around the world. We no longer will be a member of the United Nations and you will need to find a new place to meet because our free market will be using this building for business from now on. You will receive no more money from us, but we will continue to be charitable to the underpriviledged by supplying food and medical supplies ourselves via various charities in America. Hugo, Ineedajob, Kadaffy, and the rest of you dictators, kiss my a$$!”
But we are talking about a man raised by Marxists, taught by Marxists, befriended by Marxists, mentored by Marxists and married to a Marxist, so he actually envies the Castro brothers and Hugo Chavez. And as long as we live under a leader like that, America will be in very real danger.
