First Israel, now Egypt: Obama’s dismal foreign policy worse than Obamacare?

Israeli Prime Minister is watching a Neville Chamberlain moment, which will have far worse ramifications for Israel and the Jewish nation than what history has already demonstrated. The fact that we’re willing to eliminate all economic sanctions against the theocratic Islamic regime while it marches towards a weaponized nuclear capability is insane.

We’re not forcing anything of Iran, and President Rouhani is not a moderate. The fact that he named as defense minister the individual responsible for the Beirut bombing that killed 250 American Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers proves he is, as PM Netanyahu stated, “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

However, as depressing as this moment of acquiescence is, there’s another story from the Middle East which is cause for shame and alarm. Egypt was once a trusted ally for America. But now, thanks to Obama and his administration, Egypt no longer trusts America.

It was just four short years ago, on June 4, 2009, that Obama delivered a speech inspiring the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood. In June 2012, the Muslim Brotherhood acquired that which they had been prevented from having, a president in Egypt — a Muslim Brotherhood president who was embraced and welcomed by Obama and his administration.

A year later in 2013, the Egyptian people realized that America, under Obama, had betrayed their dreams and hopes of freedom. They took to the streets and removed the Islamist tyrant. And now Egypt is reverting back to seeking a relationship with Russia unlike anything seen since the Cold war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised $4 billion in weapons and Egypt is poised to provide Russia a naval base, which would be their second in the Mediterranean Sea. As well, Egypt has opened up communications inviting Putin to Egypt — and this all after US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit last week.

Ten years ago the United States had a force poised in the heart of the Middle East. I know, I was there. Today, thanks to a lack of strategic vision and foreign policy experience, America is liked, liked so much that we are not respected, and certainly not credible.

Much of the punditry over the past two weeks has been focused on Obamacare, its faults and failures, as well as President Obama’s lying. The recent debate has been about the president’s lack of credibility, which, according to his plummeting approval and favorability rating, certainly reflects it. However, President Obama’s credibility vacuum is not just in relation to his plethora of domestic failures, as his credibility in the arena of international relations is abysmal as well.

Frankly, it has come to the point that anyone seeking to defend the Obama administration has to be considered delusional.

We have a weak congress…too weak to impeach BHO or charge him with treason.


Obama has done what he said he would do. Make us a 3rd world country. He has “fundamentally changed” the USA as promised and elected to do by the idiots of this country.

I stated that this man had single handed brought this Nation down in a very short period of time. I was told this was not possible. I feel vindicated,thanks. What I want to know is: Can we survive the last years of his reign and if we do can we ever regain our place in the world? Second, Why does everyone agree yet nothing is done.

He has clearly proved to Israel that he is a Muslim and we, the American people, are idiots.


I wish West would run for President…


The ‘hope and change’ is not working well for me. Be afraid, my fellow Americans; be very afraid.

Israel is the #1 sponsor and perpetrator of terrorism and instability in the world. They are NOT our ally …they are not our friend. If Iran is trying to make nukes then why hasn’t anyone found any evidence of that? Iran signed the nuclear non proliferation treaty and by doing so they have the right to develop their own nuclear energy program …period. Israel who has nukes (they stole from us along with nuclear secrets they sold to our enemies) and refuses to sign the treaty …The Zionists currently running Israel lie as easily as they breath …95% of our… Read more »

What kind of cool-aid does this president have everyone drinking? Did he feed our leaders something that is eating their brains? What is going on that they are letting him get away with this farce. ji-bamahad is cutting the head off of America & no one is doing anything about it. Stand up & do what’s right for America before we have to have another revolution.
