All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Obama's First Gifts to America

The American Presidency is often about tone. What is the tenor of the President's message? How will his policy choices be interpreted? What do his choices say about him, our government and us? In Obama's case his first choices are about death. The death of Americans, the deaths of third world children, the death of Israel and the comfort of our sworn enemies, which includes the world's various terrorists groups. Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah are just a few of many out there. The planned closing of Guantanamo Bay is premature, especially in light of the fact that this President plans to step up the action in Afghanistan. As it is there are over one hundred prisoners in Guantanamo that no country will take. There are others we cannot send back to their home countries because we know they will be imprisoned and possibly tortured. And there are some that are so dangerous that to close Guantanamo offers no alternative except to bring them to America, where they will be accessible and possibly encourage terrorist activity within our borders, which will undoubtedly lead the to the death of Americans. His executive order to ban torture is a tacit admission that the current tactics are torture, an opinion that many, including the CIA and military intelligence officials, do not agree with. He has cleverly left the back door open on the torture question so it is clear that it is just political posturing for the liberal wing of his party. His second executive order for death is the funding of abortions overseas with taxpayer dollars. It is the greatest of ironies that the first black President would support the Eugenics theories of Margaret Sanger the founder and first president of Planned Parenthood who wrote "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." Planned Parenthood wears a different mask today than it did when it was founded because its original Eugenuics message was reprehensible and "Hitleresque." In her book, Pivot of Civilization, she referred to immigrants and poor people as "...human weeds, reckless breeders, and spawning... human beings who never should have been born." This is the message of genocide espoused by the elitist Sanger and carried on by our new President. Obama also did some less consequential things in his first week, but saying that America was a “Muslim” nation is not one of them. His failure to call Israel after having placed a call to the PLO to reassure them of our efforts to promote peace merely portends the direction he plans to take the Middle East. Israel too can feel the threat from the desired direction of Obama policy. Obama’s tutelage under Lewis Farrakhan and the Jeremiah Wright has laid the groundwork for the President’s distaste of Israel. The work of Colin Powell and the other Arabists that despise Israel will ensure that any objections to changes in US policy towards Israel will be stifled. There will be some objection from some quarters like the New York delegation, but they will be silenced quickly and in time the Arabists, the Iranians, the Syrians and the Jihadists may achieve their dream of Israel’s destruction. His speech at AIPAC and his rhetoric about defending Israel doesn’t fool anyone. He is an Arabist and will sell Israel out for peace with his Muslim brothers. Genocide only bothers this President when it takes place in Africa. Is this the new tone Obama brings to Washington D.C., America and the world? Does our new black President fly on the wings of death? Look at his first executive orders which require no more than his signature. They bring death to America, Americans and our allies, and death to Israel. This tenor, this tone does not speak well to America’s future.
