Obama Welcomes Terrorists, Shuns Allies

If we have learned nothing else from the Obama years, it is that Obama cannot be trusted. In his first days in office he insulted one of our strongest allies, England, when he returned a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill (and in the first attempted assassination by boredom, Obama later sent to Queen Elizabeth an iPod containing a collection of his speeches). This was followed by truly dangerous actions, which put our allies in harm’s way, as with his decision to renege on our commitment to Poland and the Czech Republic to build a missile shield in Eastern Europe as a firewall against Russian aggression. Obama instead sent Hillary to Russia with a “reset” button for Putin, and we all know how disastrously that turned out.

Yet none have felt the consequences of Obama’s betrayal as harshly as have our allies whom he abandoned in Iraq and Afghanistan after making the decision to unilaterally withdraw U.S. forces against the recommendations of his senior theater commanders and top military advisers. Claiming he was leaving behind a “stable, sovereign, and self-reliant Iraq”, Obama left them to fend for themselves. In the vacuum created by the exit of American forces, we have witnessed the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, as well as the rise of the most brutal, murderous Islamist terror regime we’ve seen to date, ISIS.

Climate Change Guilt Distraction

“There is such a thing as being too late when it comes to climate change.” — Obama

And so, because we may be too late to save the Earth or humanity (let that sink in for a minute), President Obama has unleashed what the New York Times has called “the strongest action ever taken in the United States to combat climate change.”

Well thank God we have a plan. Because time is running short and we all may be dead soon. Right? Yeah, right. From NRO:

The president will instruct U.S. power plants to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by just under one-third (32 percent). How that is to be achieved and at what cost is … not Barack Obama’s problem. States will have until 2018 — comfortably remote from any presidential election — to submit their plans, and until 2030 to implement them.

The thing that frustrates so completely about the climate change debate is that, like so many of the high and mighty pronouncements from the left side of the political divide, if you point out that the science is almost always contentious and subject to shift radically from year to year, and even from scientist to scientist, those who have eaten the holy wafer of the body and blood of The Sacred Cult of Enviromentalism will declare you a DENIER (read: hater of the Earth and all good things) and VERY, VERY STUPID.

A Foreign Policy of Capitulation: Iran Deal and Chattanooga

Like everyone else, I watched the coverge of the Chattanooga shooting yesterday in horror and, frankly, disgust. Sen. Frank Nicely sums up why the latter:

It really does require some acceptance of twisted logic to make that work, right? And since I’ve been trying to write about the recent Iran Deal, it got me to thinking:

Since when is capitulation a reasonable foreign policy strategy?

Andrew McCarthy explains why there is no way to see the recent deal struck in Vienna as anything but a sort of white-flag surrender to an enemy that shows no inclination toward friendship with the US or her allies.
