“Stunning and offensive” Obama publicly insults Australia’s leader at G20

I know the story dominating the media today is all about Ferguson, Missouri — but there are many other bigger issues we cannot ignore

You might have missed it, but on Monday the U.S. Secretary of Defense resigned — well, he was probably fired. As well, the nuclear program negotiations with Iran failed again, and there has been another extension to the Monday deadline — into next year. We still have a little problem called ISIS, which has beheaded three Americans and still holds a female American hostage. And Russia is still building up its forces against Ukraine.

There seems to be a never-ending stream of chaos and crisis — any wonder why there is a crisis of confidence in America?

And in the midst of it all, I came across an op-ed piece that is truly upsetting. As written by Aussie Nick Adams for Fox News, “What President Obama did when he came to the G20 meeting in Brisbane, Australia, was stunning and offensive. Mirroring his action in sending the bust of Winston Churchill back to England, the president gave a provocative, anti-Abbott (Australia’s PM) speech on climate change at the University of Queensland. But more than being provocative, it has emerged that the staff at U.S. embassy in Canberra advised him not to give the speech.”

As Greg Sheridan in The Australian newspaper put it: “Obama’s speech was deliberately designed to hurt Abbott… Historians of the relationship cannot cite a single similar example of a visiting president going out of his way to wound an Australian prime minister… What was Obama’s purpose? Can one more celebrity orgasm really be more important to the President than maintaining his relationship with his closest ally in Asia? Was Obama preparing for his post-presidential life, as a new and improved Al Gore?”

The question has to be asked, why would an American president insult a country that since the beginning of the last century, has been the only country to have fought alongside the United States in every single major conflict? It can be easily argued that Australia is America’s closest ally in Asia, if not the world.

I remember chatting with Aussie Spec Ops troops during my time in Kandahar, Afghanistan — tough fellas indeed and impeccable warriors. They were dedicated men who stood shoulder to shoulder with our own troops in the fight against the Taliban and Islamic terrorism. So what was more important for President Obama that he would have to embarrass an ally and host prime minister?

Well, it seems that Prime Minister Abbott is just not Obama’s cup of tea. You see, Tony Abbott is the conservative prime minister of Australia, a leader who stopped illegal immigration to his country, a man who has insisted that everyone living in Australia be part of “Team Australia,” and the only world leader to have confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin over his actions in Ukraine and the downing of flight MH17. Once he took office, Abbott immediately scrapped the carbon tax (cap-and-trade) that his liberal predecessor had implemented when she became prime minister. Now, Australia has come to represent the last great holdout to the climate change agenda. It surprised few that climate change had been left off the G20 agenda — oops, therein lies the rub for President Obama.

Prime Minister Abbott is a member of the “flat earth society,” so called by the progressive socialist Left because he rejects the politics of the climate changers and focuses on policies vital to the security of his country.

And what was the response from Australia? “Prime Minister Abbott’s office expressed displeasure at not being offered the courtesy of being warned in advance that the president of the United States was planning to come to Australia to dump on the prime minister. Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, was forced to publicly rebuke the president, a first for her office while she was in New York chairing the National Security Council.”

At a time when the enemies of America — and indeed liberty — are gathering and threatening, the last conceivable action would be to show such behavior towards an ally, Australia. We are watching America lose respect and regard among allies in the Middle East — such as Egypt and UAE. We have strained relations with our best ally in the Middle East, Israel. The alliances of new Europe are being tested and stretched in the face of Russian aggression. It has to be troubling that we are at such a crisis of leadership in America — clearly evident in our domestic policy, but also in our foreign policy and relations. And now with the sacking of SecDef Chuck Hagel one has to ask, what shall become of our national security in these last two years of the Obama administration?

If 2014 is an indicator, well, as we say down south, “Katie bar the door.” To our cousins “down under” and to Prime Minister Abbott, may I be so kind as to offer you an apology from a simple American, and ask that you continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the American people.

This POS POTUS bends over backwards to bring our military hardware into China for an airshow (jeopardizing military secrets) in hopes to win over that country yet snubs and insults the leader of Australia, our closest ally. Truly the actions of someone that if not for being the POTUS would be considered an enemy of the state. Amazing,,,,,

…. the actions of someone that if not for being the POTUS would be considered an enemy of the state ….

Like so many “Democrats” who’ve before him occupied our 1600 Pennsylvania offices and attached public housing: Woodrow Wilson, the effective Soviet agent and very real traitor, Roosevelt — and Kennedy, Johnson and Cartah, — and the especially-loathsome and fearsome and recidivist and serially-treasonous, Missus and Billah-Bubbah Blythe “Cli’ton?” (And Richard Nixon)

Barry Soros um Soetoro “Obama,” IS an enemy of the state!

Tough sh!t.
talking about climate change at the G20 was appropriate.
If the local leader hates science, we’re not allowed to talk about it?
This was a G20 summit… not a friendly visit to Australia.
It was a forum for world leaders to talk about global concerns.

Talking about climate change might be appropriate if the speaker had any idea of what he was talking about. Obama knows less than the average layperson about so-called “climate change,” so he doesn’t belong pushing his rhetoric on other countries, let alone disparaging our allies in the name of what amounts to a giant conspiracy and little more. “Climate Change” is pseudo-science. That’s why when it was released to the public that there had been no change in the “average global temperature” over the last 18 years, it went from being global warming to “climate change.” Show anyone some hard… Read more »

Well said.

Uniquely among modern “Democratic”-potty be-squatters and be-manurers of the office he so soils (although the recidivist, serially-treasonous, lying, looting, mass-murdering, co-serial-raping, Missus and Billah-Bubbah Blythe “Cli’tons” surely give him a ride for his money) Obama — better known as “Zero — has thus far throughout what little is known of his “life,” been 100% wrong about everything,

One hundred per cent of the time!

“I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet because you’re being had.” – Michael Crichton “Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus.

Have you told the east coast about global warming? I don’t think you could convince them right now Brendan. And here in the NW, we have had a very cold start and now very wet climate going on. Where’s the warming?

Brendan
Guest

Do you think night time is proof that there is no sun until it magically reappears in the morning?

Heavy snow in one part of the globe during Winter does not disprove overall rising global temperature.

Since your concept of overall global climate is based only on what you can see right in front of you, does that mean that you believe in climate change when it is really hot in the Summer?

Funny, so am I. And their consensus is that most of this nonsense is made up. 18 years of data that showed their theories were complete bunk rather destroyed everything they’ve been claiming since they got on this bandwagon. Seriously, why don’t you go read what “climate scientists” have been saying since the 60s and you’ll see they just pinball from one unproven theory to the next to keep the grant money flowing. You might want to listen to the ones at NASA, who take little things like solar effects into consideration and not just “carbon footprints” of humans.

It’s way worse than mere “jealousy.”

All totalitarianism — and by its every other name, including ‘being a “Democrat,”‘ descends from a Malignant-Envy-driven, self, own-culture and — invariably and inevitably — own-species-loathing, Psychopathology.

Fascissocialism is a psychosis.

I have said all along that Obama was more like a big kid than a president. One of those kids who has in his mind that everything should go the way they want it to, and if it don’t it is someone else’s fault. It seems like he has determined that since nothing he has tried to do during his time as president has worked, he will just see how far down he can drag the nation before he leaves office. I think it is his way of getting even with the country for expecting more of him than he… Read more »

Call him wrong-way Obama. Obama is the perfect reverse indicator: if he insults you, then you know that you’re on the right track!. If he’s your friend, then you’re an evil bastard. I can’t think of a single thing that Obama is correct about. He’s about as wrong-headed as a person could be.

Why not? Obama has screwed over, and shown his contempt for, the United States; he has screwed over Israel at every opportunity; adding Australia to the list is a simple matter.
In fact, when you consider his actions, the only nations he has given any respect are those who seek our destruction.

I didn`t vote for him either time, not because he was Black/ white whatever, but because he had no experience.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister and ALL the people of the great country of Australia,
I would like to apologize for Obama and his ignorance. Please, please do not look upon all true Americans in a way that you must be looking upon Obama. “We the People,” are just as disgusted as you must be. We have been deceived and we believe that this mans agenda is Not, in any form or fashion, in our (Americas) best interest.
