One thing that you can be sure of when Sarah Palin goes to India next month, is that she will not be apologizing for America. She is proud of this country and believes that we are the best place in the world to live. I think that they will be surprised to find that she is a very intelligent woman, unlike how the main stream press is determined to portray her.
She proved a few weeks ago that she is perfectly able to answer any question thrown at her with knowledge, class, honestly, succinctly, and without a teleprompter. She will not be traveling with hundreds of people, so she will be able to connect with people on the personal level. We also know that she is gracious and will not insult the Indian people by comparing them to their neighbor.
I think that the people of India will find that Sarah Palin is a much more interesting person than Barack Obama and that she is able to inspire and lead, instead or demeaning and ordering as Barack has a tendency to do. She will treat those she meets with respect and honor that has sadly been lacking in our current administration.
There comes a time when you just have to say enough is enough and we can’t take any more. I think that we have reached that time. The world is starting to come apart and our President is dithering around like a aging child star without any real role to play but still thinking that he is the greatest thing that there is.
We don’t have time for that anymore! We have moved beyond looking for the “American Idol” and now we need someone that we can follow. Someone who can lead us out of this mess that Mr. Obama and his minions have gotten us into. We need a leader, not a leading man. The trouble is that Mr. Obama has played this role of being the star for so long, that he doesn’t seem to realize that it is not a role any longer. He only knows how to act as long as someone is feeding him the lines. There are no lines for the situation that we find ourselves in now.
There is not even a good director in the Whitehouse to tell the man what he should do. He has stacked the deck with adoring sycophants who know no more than he does and so when there is a real crisis, no one knows what to do. Hillary warned us that he would not be able to handle that three am phone call, but what we didn’t know was that she didn’t know how to handle it either.
It is time for Mr. Obama’s party to wise up and look to the security and welfare of the country and encourage Mr. Obama to step down. I am not sure that Mr. Biden would be any better, but he would have others to listen to, and he at least, has proven that he does have the ability to listen.
If they do not act, we have to assume that they are wanting this country to be brought down, and if that is the case, we must look at other options. Terrorists from outside the country tried that on 9/11. We went to war to stop that from happening again. Mr. Obama and his followers are risking a great deal to try and bring the country down from the inside. There is nothing in the Constitution that says that we have to allow that to happen. There are processes in place to deal with that and these are already being started in many states. When Mr. Obama finds that he is not the leading man, but is the bad guy, perhaps he should consider that the ending of the story is never good for the bad guy.
It’s a shame really, that the man that had the most to gain by leading this country, and the most to gain by being the star, could instead wind up with losing the most. This country will recover with dignity, but Mr. Obama will probably only be remembered for what he could have been. When people remember Ronald Reagan, they remember that the country grew under him. When people remember Barack Obama, they will remember that this country was divided and torn by him.
What happens to existing laws when a sitting President decides that his justice department is not obligated to defend these laws.
It’s one thing if the Supreme Court decides they are not constitutional, but it is another for a President to declare that. Where does it leave those who are involved in court case both for and against the law? How do judges that are in the middle of making decisions, make those decisions, and what do they base it on?
In one act the President of the United States has thrown chaos into what, until this time, has been a stable, and trusted form of deliberation. Until now, people could have trust in the process, even if they were not always happy with the outcome. Now, no one can be sure that someone else will not come along and decide that whatever law that they don’t believe in, is unconstitutional.
Was that their real intent? To disrupt the Judicial process and create chaos?
Or is it another assault on Christianity? Will this lead to states being forced to recognize gay marriage, even if it is against their beliefs. Is this a foot in the door to tell Christians what they can believe and how they can practice their religion?
The post I have linked to below from the Christian Science Monitor is really frightening.
Mr. Obama’s idea of being President is to party hearty while the rest of the country dies a slow death. I read a post today about the Obama DOJ going after Bobby Jindal in LA. and trying to find some way to get his administration on failure to enforce the Moter Voter law. They don’t feel that laws they don’t like are worth enforcing and that they can just declare that they don’t believe that they are Constitutional. But if it is something that they do believe in, they will go after it with an obsessional fervor. It is insane the way that they are running this country…..
What is their agenda? Are they truly determined to destroy this country? Do they truly believe that they can remake it to suit them? Do they not realize that their are too many people that won’t go along with that? This is not Chicago, or Illinois where they have done this for years.
They do not understand the fury they are stirring up in the rest of the country. If they continue down this path, the end will not be with them in control and the end will not be with them making millions of dollars going on speaking tours, the end will probably be with many in the administration in jail, serving long prison terms.
If they had any sense they would take the time to look at a map of all the states that are now red. The coast of the country is beautiful and many years ago, could have gotten along without the interior of the country, but in their arrogance, they are forgetting that they can no longer do that. The middle of the country is where they get most of the production and food. The South is also not going where NY and CA are wanting to go. Even most of Ill. is not going where Chicago whats to go. Why do they think that all of these areas are losing people? If people wanted what these areas of the country offered, they would be staying there.
Even is Mr. Obama wins, he loses. This country will rebound. The way our Constitution is written we have the ability to come back. The works to enable that are already underway in the states that are passing laws to retake the control that the federal government has taken for themselves the past one hundred years.
Mr. Obama has lost because he has woken the people up and they have said,“No, we do not want what you are forcing upon us”.
What will happen to Mr. Obama? Who knows!!!! Will he be refurbished, like Mr. Carter has to a certain extent? I doubt it!!! Mr. Obama will probably go through what money he has, and will earn in the future and then fade into history to be remembered only as the man that tried and failed to destroy this beautiful country.
He might make some money talking for awhile, but I don’t think people are going to want to pay money for someone to tell them that everything that went wrong was someone else’s fault, or listen to him whine about being not respected.That is all dependent on whether he remains a free man. If he keeps going the way that he does, he may wind up spending the rest of his life in jail or under house arrest. Preferably the first in my case.
Will the Democrat party realize that the man that they have put into power is determined to destroy the country and that he doesn’t care if he takes them with it. Will they realize that instead of a man that will make this country stronger and ensure that they will be in charge for many years, they have instead elected a man that is willing to stomp them into the ground to get what he wants. Are they even able to see that what they want matters less to him that the bugs that crawl on the ground.
The link below is to a really interesting article, please take the time to read it.
Are we at the precipice of a new world war? Look at the places that are facing unrest just at this day and time.
* Algeria-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Egypt-riots, food shortages, unemployment, Mubarak out
* Libya-riots, food shortages, unemployment, Gaddafi firing on protesters
* Tunisia -riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Yeman-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Sudan-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Pakistan-riots, unemployment
* Iraq-Taliban,unemployment,suicide bombers
* Iran-riots, unemployment
* Pakistan-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* India-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Bahrain-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Somalia-riots, food shortages, unemployment
* Greece-riots, unemployment
* Italy-riots, unemployment
* Spain-riots, unemployment
* Portugal-riots, unemployment
Do you see the pattern here? The question is why is there so much unemployment? You have an area that is mostly controlled by Dictators, Kings, Governments that do not rely on free markets but either dictate every process or put such heavy rules and regulations on all business, that they stifle growth. Then you have the influence of religion. It makes a mix that restricts behavior to the point where it is almost impossible for an entrepeneur. Finally you have an area of the world that has never been completely stable and with outside agitators you have the very great risk of triggering violent conflict.
This means that the Gulf of Aden, the Gulf of Oman, the Straits of Hormuz, the Suez Canal, and even the Mediterranean are all at risk. Where does this leave shipping in the area? We already have ships being hijacked and people being killed off the eastern coast of Africa. What does this mean to the cost of oil and even shipping?
Algeria is facing the same dangers that Libya is going through. What happens if Algeria falls? We get 1/7 of our oil from Algeria. If it falls, the price of oil will probably sky rocket. The Guardian says that it “is using it’s powerful security forces to prevent rioting”. What happens if they start doing what Libya is doing, and firing on their own people.
It is not only the loss of oil that we have to worry about, though. With unrest in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Yeman, and Sudan, all dealing with major unrest and upheaval, you have both Northern Africa and the Middle East involved in conflict. Will it spread to the rest of Africa? Much of it is already unstable. What about further into Indonesia and the rest of Asia?
We already have most of the Mediterranean involved,what is the risk that it will spread further north into Europe?
Sarah Palin has a post on her facebook page, pointing out the reasons that we should support the people of Libya and why we should speak out instead of staying silent. She is right to call out this administration on it’s failure to call out Mr. Gadaffi. It’s not that he would listen to us, it’s that we would let the world know that we still have principles. It’s that we would let the world know that our standards are the same for everyone.
Mrs. Palin knows that we need to signal to the world that we are a strong country and that we will support our friends. She also knows that we need to signal the world that we are willing to put pressure, both verbally and with force, if necessary, to protect our security and safety. The price and availability of oil are important to both.
Where is Mr. Obama on Libya? He was adamant that Mr. Mubarak should step down in Egypt, but he has said nothing about Mr. Gadaffi in Libya. Why? Is the security of Libya any less important to us than the security of Egypt? If Mr. Gadaffi were to blow up the oil pipelines as he has threatened, not only would this be a major loss to the world in oil, but it would raise the price of oil. This would have a very negative effect on our economic recovery.
Mr. Obama is suffering from yet another failure of leadership with his inability to speak forcefully to the world and tell them what our position is. He is not signaling strength, he is signaling weakness. It’s too bad that he can not seem to understand that our security and safety is just as important to the unions as it is to the rest of the country. Their jobs depend on having a reliable source of energy for fuel, production, and to heat and cool their homes. Without it, it won’t matter whether they retain their ability to unionize or not.
Mr. Obama does not seem to be able to understand that his job is to secure the country. All of the country. Mrs. Palin seems to understand that very well. You see that in her emphasis in her writings and her speaking.
When you compare the responses to both the crisis in the Middle East and the crisis here at home, you see the stark differences in their attitudes. It’s is nice that Mr. Obama remembers who put him in the Whitehouse. It’s a shame that he has forgotten, or doesn’t care, that now that he is there, it is his responsibility to secure the safety and security of the country.
What we need in a President is someone who can respond to any situation with the interests of the country first and foremost.
Where are we headed in this country? Why are the unions telling our President what to do? Or is it the other way around? Is our President the head of the unions? Why does the President or his aides meet with or talk to the unions everyday?Especially when he doesn’t bother to meet with his own cabinet ministers at all.
Does it seem strange to you that a man that is the leader of a great nation with a diverse cabinet, doesn’t even bother to gather them in one place and meet with them once a month, or even once every six months? Why is our President inserting himself into the state governments, while not bothering to make inroads into the massive debts that we have. Which is the job of the President? To take care of the federal government or the state government?
Who is benefiting both from the unrest here in the United States and in the rest of the world? What is the real goal. Is this good against evil? Or is there some agenda being played out that we are not aware of? Why is the press not covering all the things that are going on?
Why is the President so determined to abandon Israel? It does seem as if the President has much more respect for the Muslim religion than he does for the Christian, and he seems to have a literal hatred of Judism and Israel. Why? Is it his upbringing. Is this why our founders wanted to make sure that a President was a natural born citizen? Did they understand that only a natural born citizen would love this country enough to keep it safe?
Where does that leave the American people when the leader of the country does not share their love for the country? What are our options? If a President is trying to bring the country down from within, what can we do? We were asleep at the wheel when this President was elected. We didn’t think that someone could hate this country, and yet pretend to love it and want to make it better. We didn’t know that this country was vulnerable to someone who was determined to destroy it by using some of the laws and ignoring any that didn’t serve their purpose.
We are in a Constitutional Crisis and yet it seems as if most of our leaders are simply ignoring the fact and pretending that everything is normal. We have a leader, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, who is actively violating the constitution of the United States. Whether you like Mr. Obama or not, whether you agree with him or not, he is the President of the country.
As a leader, he has the obligation to not only obey the laws, he has the obligation to enforce and to make sure that those under him,obey the laws of the country. He took an oath when he was sworn in, to obey the laws of the country, and to protect the country. He has shown over and over that he does not believe that the laws apply to him and if he does get a judgement that goes against him, he either ignores them or pretends that they say something else.

It seems that with Mr. Obama, we have become irrelevant to the security of the area. With Mr. Bush, we at least had the respect of the leaders of these countries, even if they did not really like us. Now we do not even have that. We have angered those who supported us in the past, and made them lose face with their neighbors. They have lost faith that if push come to shove, that we will help protect them if they are in need. We have even demanded that our staunchest ally, Israel, give in to the demands of those who are determined to destroy her.
What happens if we lose access to our military bases in the Middle East? We have unrest in Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Saudia Arabia. If we lose access because of the violence, will we have to withdraw from the area? Or will we have to fight to retain what we hold? If the countries that we have bases in, withdraw their permission, where does that leave us? If we lose access to the Suez canal, or the straits of Hormuz, for instance, can we keep oil tankers that supply our country safe? What happens in Afghanistan? With Turkey so anti-Israel now, how does that affect our relationship in that area? Where do we stand with the United Arab Emirates and Quatar?
If Iran decides to take advantage of our weakness and lack of support for Israel and decide to attack, what will we do? Surely this is on the mind of our friends and our enemies too. How is it that a man that we were told was “the one that we have been waiting for”, has instead, become the one that we wish would go away.
Instead of strengthening our ties to the Middle East, we have almost destroyed every single relationship that we had. The arrogance of those in power in Washington, D.C. have endangered our future, and the very security of our existence.
So, where do we go from here? Can we regain our standing is we elect someone else in 2012? Or have we lost our advantage for an untold period of time? What else have we lost?
