(Breitbart) – Symbols matter throughout the world, but no more so than in the Middle East. So President Obama’s no-show in Paris, where an unprecedented million-and-a-half people marched, with over 40 world leaders to show the world that they will not be intimidated by Islamic terrorism, was an embarrassment for all Americans, and one that’s likely to cause more problems.
Like it or not, the Ummah (Muslim world) seems likely to take that absence as another subtle message that Obama stood with the Islamic Jihadis who were defending the Prophet Mohammed.
For the supposed leader of the free world to be a no-show was an affront to Western democracies. The Obama Administration is now in full damage control mode by admitting it made an “error.” Was it an error or deliberate?
President Obama was not alone in his Paris no-show. If the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, who is number two in line for the presidency, and the new Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell, had the political courage to stand up for freedom and democracy, they both would have been in Paris showing the world where the United States Congress stands.
Of course, there have been many signals by the Obama Administration that the mainstream media have chosen to ignore or underplay.
For example, in his June 4, 2009 Cairo “outreach” speech to the Muslim world, he gave some insight when he stated that he considered part of his responsibility as President of the United States was to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. I don’t think such a statement is in his oath of office.
Furthermore, he signaled his support for the “Arab Spring” Islamic uprisings. Both al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood understood by that signal that the United States under President Obama would not stand in their way in the revolution to come. Finally, in his September 2012 speech to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama declared “that the future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” That should have dispelled any doubt.
America’s response to the Arab Spring represented a dramatic shift in our Middle East policy that would have major consequences for America’s standing in that region and beyond. The “Arab Spring” was promoted by the Administration as a freedom and democracy movement. It was not even a close call. It was an Islamist “supremacist” awakening!
Under the Obama Administration, key was the fact that we “switched sides” in the Islamic Jihad wars and dumped our allies in the Global War on Terror. We were now supporting al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) affiliated militias and rebels, many of which fought against our forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
TREASON'S ADDRESS IS 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.
In the white colored house right?
I'm surprised he hasn't painted it black
Obama is a satan worshipping diaperhead, as evil as was Hitler!!!!!
Again Bob, I am in total agreement.
We the American people are reaping what we sow. We allowed this to happen folks. Now we the people have to correct it by any means possible to save our country.
You got that right...God help us in our quest!
Obama's friends, Islamic Jihadists.
Truth and fact Ms. Richardson.
Administrations as sophisticated as ours don't make such open and obvious errors... This was not only deliberate, it was calculated, to encourage more jihadist terrorism. It is time that Congress takes up IMPEACHMENT of this President for high crimes and misdemeanors... there is certainly sufficient evidence to make a probable cause case for crimes ranging from gun running to treason.
The Arab Spring and his release of Muslim Combatants, illegal arms running to Islamic terrorist groups, open financial support for Muslim terrorist organizations, all smack of 'aiding and abetting' the enemies of the United States. These events alone stand as evidence in support of the classical definition of treason.
Libya and Bengahzi caught this Administration in gun running schemes and directly involved in the destabilizing of Moderate Secular States in the Mid-East. Pres. Obama's finger prints are all over several clandestine gun running and covert training schemes that support ISIL, ISIS, Al Qaeda and other Islamic Terrorist organizations, declared enemies of the United States. We don't arm and train our enemies, nor should we release their leaders to return to the field as combatants..
The President's political appointments of questionable members or former associates of radical Islamic groups is not only reckless, it gives aid to and abets known enemies of the United States. His snubbing of US Allies in preference for radical elements of Islam (Hamas, PLO, Muslim Brotherhood, etc) raise questions that should NEVER be raised regarding a Presidents loyalty.
In addition, to all the highly unorthodox usurpations and interpretations of the Constitution this President has engaged in, there remain serious allegations, supported by admissible EVIDENCE, that the President ascended FRAUDULENTLY to the Office of President. The 'Birther Issues' are not a wacko conspiracy theory They have firm evidence of collusion, to doctor the President's Birth Certificate and other significant documents, including: selective service, social security, and Educational documents... all of which had a direct impact on his being elected to the Office of President.
There is enough evidence and open questions to bring this President before Congress in an Impeachment Trial ... too, determine what the facts one way or another. The President should be Impeached immediately... he may well prove to be a serous threat and danger to the security of the United States.
