Evidently, Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr. never took young Barry aside and gave him that bit of advice.
Look at Barack Hussein Obama’s career, from his days as a community organizer to now, and look at the company he kept and is keeping.
Back in his days of community organizing, Obama hung out with the movers and shakers of Chicago politics, professional politicians who are known for their shady backroom dealing.
Then, he worked at the Annenberg Foundation with Former Weatherman, Bomber Bill Ayers
When he got into the Illinois Senate, he continued these relationships, and built new ones with fellow travelers. That is, politicians who thought the same way that he did and who never saw a situation that they could not take advantage of.
Then, when he came to the United States Senate, he and his handlers made sure that he was around the right sort of people who could further his political career. Of course, this took the seat of importance away from those whom he was supposed to be representing from his home district.
After his election to the highest office in this land, Obama has made poor choice after poor choice , in terms of whom to embrace as a friend among four and leadership, and whom to alienate.
As I have said many times, Obama alienates our friends and embraces our enemies.
There is a reason that the greatest president in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, always advised to
Trust, but verify.
Reagan knew that in the game of world politics, those who wish to harm us, are masters at being duplicitous.
Our enemies will lie to us at every opportunity to gain an advantage over us, because they fear the kind of American Will and Courage, which freed the world in World War II.
Ronaldus Magnus’ warning continues to echo as loud as it ever did, some 30+ years later.
However, the individual who now sits behind the desk in the Oval Office, refuses to verify the intentions of those whmo he remains so steadfast in attempting to befriend.
For example, the Radical Islamic Leadership in Iran.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that
The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.
Today’s $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program that was inked in November.
Iran will receive a total of $4.9 billion in unfrozen cash assets via 10 separate payments by the United States through June 22, when talks with Iran are scheduled to end with a final agreement aimed at curbing the country’s nuclear work, according to a State Department official.
Iran received $4.2 billion in similar payments under the 2013 interim agreement with the United States and was then given another $2.8 billion by the Obama administration last year in a bid to keep Iran committed to the talks through November, when negotiators parted ways without reaching an agreement.
Iran will have received a total of $11.9 billion in cash assets by the end of June if current releases continue on pace as scheduled.
The release of this money has drawn outrage from some Republican lawmakers who filed legislationlast year to prevent the release of cash due to a lack of restrictions on how Iran can spend the money.
These cash payments by the United States have been made with no strings attached, prompting concerns that Iran could use the funds to finance its worldwide terror operations, which include the financial backing of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other rogue entities.
Senators—including Mark Kirk (R., Ill.), Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.), and John Cornyn (R., Texas)—sought last year to put a hold on the cash infusions until the White House could certify that Iran was not using the money to support terrorism.
Kirk, who is preparing to offer legislation that would tighten sanctions on Iran, said that the ongoing payments could help Iran fuel its terror empire well into the near future.
“Between November 2014 and July 2015, the interim deal’s direct forms of sanctions relief will allow Iran access to roughly $4.9 billion in frozen money,” Kirk told the Washington Free Beacon “That’s equal to what it’d cost Iran to fund Hezbollah for as much as 50 years.”
The Pentagon estimates Iran has spent $100 to $200 million per year funding Hezbollah.
Well, now we know why Obama is so upset that Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to speak to the US Congress.
You see, Netanyahu is an expert on the Islamic nation of Iran. He also has a very fine intelligence network, which no doubt has kept him up-to-date concerning the intricate workings of the deal-making that is going on, on Obama’s behalf, between Secretary of State John Kerry and the Barbaric Islamic Mullahs of Iran.
Obama is scared to death that Netanyahu will reveal to the American Public that Obama’s naive arrogance and duplicitous Chicago-Style Backroom “Negotiations” with his “Muslim Brothers” in Iran, are not only allowing them to surreptitiously build a “nuclear device”, but the dhimmi at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is paying for our possible annihilation WITH AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY!
Now, I’m just spitballin’ here, but, I wonder if his meddling in the Israeli Elections, in order to kick Netanyahu out of office, as I wrote about yesterday, is a codicil of his “negotiations” with the Mad Mullahs?
Carter’s bumbling, regarding Iran, cost us a failed Hostage Rescue.
Obama’s petulance, arrogance, and naive dhimmitude may cost America and Israel our very existence.
Until He Comes,
