“July 26, 2009 … Yes, America, we are entering a very scary time for our country … America is the greatest country on Earth and we are going to change it.” Barack Obama

Time to celebrate the end of an error.

Something to consider. If Hillary is formally charged with crimes before Obama gets replaced, he can pardon her. If he pardons her for any crimes without being formally charged, he becomes complicit because he is acknowledging crimes committed. If he doesn’t pardon her and she is charged after he is out of office, things may be revealed that put his finger prints all over the same crimes. About time we see him in a corner. Well played Mr. Trump.

 

When a pack of predators scouts a potential meal they surround the herd with distractions and nip at the weakest to separate it from the protection of the larger herd. Since our government is distracted and ineffectual from fending off the multitude of nips the predators of the world are separating us from our allies and will slowly bleed us with increased nips weakening us. Our foreign policy is isolating us from our herd of allies as they do not trust us any more to contribute to mutual protection. All the predator has to do is keep up the pressure and bide its time. Our government has the attention span of a goldfish and cannot react to these nips in a consistent and effective manner. Only time will tell if the U.S. can get its act together and rejoin the herd or defend itself in an effective manner. Energy is the key. Global warming is the Trojan horse that Putin will use to bring us down as he is positioning himself to be the biggest controller of energy in the world. Overloading our immigration system is bringing more leftists into the U.S. The middle east has ruined our credibility and is now the huge issue that will exacerbate the energy issue. Yes, we need to fight for the oil or we need to develop our own oil resources and advance our nuclear power program or we will succumb. Pragmatism is a Russian trait and they will do whatever is necessary to accomplish their goals. We need to do the same. Public opinion be damned.

One major reason we have issues with foreign policy is our lack of consistency and our staying power. Every 4 years is a crapshoot for our allies. The public is fickle, uninformed and prone to seize on “causes” whether the facts contradict their worldview or not. Humans are not “nice” by nature and have to be taught manners. Sometimes this is unpleasant for the student.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” Not sure where this came from as many have had it attributed to them.
