Obama Vows to Disarm America

In this remarkable 2007 video, Barack Obama pledges to an anti-war group that he will eliminate and severely reduce America’s nuclear arsenal.  He also promises not to weaponize space and that he wants a world without nuclear weapons.

Now that’s a nice thought.  Wouldn’t we all like that?  There’s just one problem…there are a number of rogue nations (North Korea, Iran, etc) that have the ability to make a nuclear weapon.  So, do we honestly believe that if we eliminate all of our nukes, that they’re going to do the same thing?  Give me a break.

If Obama and his “progressive” followers don’t want America to be the worlds lone military superpower, then who do they want leading the world?  China?  North Korea?  Oh yeah, the world would be much safer under them.  If we’re not the world’s military superpower, somebody else will be.  There are plenty of nations ready and willing to take our place.

If you think back to September 11th, 2001, could you have honestly believed that America would have lasted nearly 7 years without another major attack on our soil?  Most of us believed (including me) that it would be two and maybe three years at the most before we were hit again.  Because of President Bush’s leadership we have lasted this long and America has nearly completely dismantled the Al Qaeda network.

We’re winning the war against terror.  We’re winning the war in Iraq.  We removed the Taliban.  We removed Sadaam Hussein.  Al Qaeda is utterly ineffective and losing to us on every front.  Why would we stop now?  Because we have hope and we want change?  Barack Obama will bring change all right–from winning against terorrist to losing against terrorists; from being the world’s lone superpower to not being a superpower; from being strong to being weak.  Oh yeah, that’s change I can believe in.

Terrorists For Obama

Hamas, the Palestinian Sunni Islamist militant organization (i.e. terrorist group) and political party has come out in support of their favorite U.S. Presidential candidate….Barack Obama. Hamas’ top political adviser in the Gaza Strip, Ahmed Yousef, said in an interview with World Net Daily and ABC radio that Hamas “hopes” Obama will win the presidential elections and “change” America’s foreign policy.

Yousef also went onto say this:

“I hope Mr. Obama and the Democrats will change the political discourse. … I do believe [Obama] is like John Kennedy, a great man with a great principal. And he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community, but not with humiliation and arrogance.”

Naturally the Obama campaign ran away from this faster than it did from Rev. Jeremiah Wright a week ago. The only problem for the Obama campaign is the lingering question that will remain in voters’ minds in November. Why would a terrorist organization endorse Barack Obama?

Well, if you put yourself in the shoes of the leader of Hamas, what would you want out of America’s next President?

1. A weaker America with less military presence in the Middle East, thus allowing terrorist organizations to freely recruit, raise money, and grow.

2. A weak U.S. economy thus diminishing America’s presence in the world.

3. A more “tolerant” view of radical Islam.

4. Abandonment of Israel.

I’m not suggesting that these are Obama’s coming policies, but Hamas clearly believes that they will get more of these with Obama than they do with McCain. It is similar to Al Qaeda’s unofficial “endorsement” of John Kerry four years ago, by Al Qaeda leaders using Democratic talking points on an Al Jazeera released videotape. All organizations (labor unions, religious groups, nonprofit organizations) will endorse who they feel will be in their best interest. Terrorists want what is best for them too!

For those of us who aren’t hypnotized by Obama’s empty platitudes of change and hope, this really comes as no surprise. Obama has shown himself to be not only naive, but dangerously naive regarding foreign policy. He has suggested that he would have negotiations with Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela (without preconditions) and has suggested invading one of our allies, Pakistan. He has promised to raise taxes and has promised to immediately start pulling troops out of Iraq. He has promised to levy windfall taxes on American oil companies, which would not only wreck any hope America has of becoming energy independent, but would give foreign oil companies a distinct advantage over American oil companies. Nearly every Obama plan put forth thus far is a potential disaster that could literally take decades to fix once he left office. What better scenario for Hamas and other terrorist organizations to thrive under? A crippled America is in their best interests.

By mine and any other sane person’s calculations, Obama already has the perfect plan to accomplish the first three things on the Hamas wishlist. Raising taxes weakens the economy and pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan weakens our influence in the Middle East. This would allow terrorist organizations to recruit, train, and expand freely. Hamas recognizes that Obama is a member of a church that has remained very vocally anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian for twenty years. Yousef even went so far as to say that Obama is just “kissing up to Jews” because that is “American politics”.

There will be much more of this in the coming months. No one issue will derail the Obama campaign, but a combination of the combined controversies of Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers, and a Hamas endorsement very well could. It just depends on how hungry Americans are for a change in the wrong direction.

Obama: No Al Qaeda in Iraq?

Obama’s been making a lot of unwise statements lately and he almost slips up and makes another one here. No Al Qaeda in Iraq? Better rethink that one….

Obama Calls For Talks With Iran

On Tuesday, Presidential Candidate Barack Obama called for the US to talk to Iran to help sort out the Iraq situation. Which, if you think about it, is pretty funny considering that Iranians are probably largely behind the majority of attacks on US troops in Iraq. What would talking to a clown like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accomplish? Likely nothing other than embarrassing the United States for negotiating with a communist nation and bowing to their desires. Iran has a vested interest in what happens in Iraq. Iran would like nothing more than to turn Iraq into a nation much like Iran. Iran does not want any kind of democracy in the Middle East and will be a major opposing force to any kind of democratic government for a very long time.

Sure, Iran could stop a lot of the violence in the region because they’re the cause of most of it. In case Obama hasn’t noticed, Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. Iran would gladly “help” us quell the violence and in exchange get to exert more influence on Iraq and dictate where oil profits go. Why don’t we just open up negotiations and unilateral talks with Al Qaeda?

Maybe we should “talk” to Iran about the 6000 new centrifuges that they are assembling for their nuclear program. I’m so sure Iran’s only interest in uranium is for nuclear power….does anyone actually believe that?
