What we’re witnessing in America is beyond belief, as if Roman Emperor Nero has been reincarnated in President Barack Hussein Obama. In his dwindling days, Nero began to demonstrate certain instability, and as story tells it, he famously fiddled while Rome burned. Some have written that Nero ordered the fires to be started himself. And in these final days, 21 days, 4 hours, 30 minutes and 50 seconds of the Obama administration, we find the disturbing and disconcerting actions of one who is starting fires while he plays golf.
There’s no logical explanation to the deeds being done by Obama in these final days. Last week’s undermining and betrayal of Israel cannot be explained away by any 90-minute diatribe by John Kerry. We’ve shared the history of the word “Palestine” on these pages. And to have Obama craft language, abstain from a vote, and allow such an anti-Israel resolution to pass through the U.N. Security Council is inexplicable, other than seeking to usher in the demise of a recognized nation-state.
The recent sanctions and expulsions of Russian officials from America is unconscionable. After all the previous provocations of Russia against the United States, why now, with three weeks before the inauguration of a new presidential administration, does this happen?
Obama will be able to walk away from this action which will fall squarely into the lap of the incoming Donald Trump administration. And we must ask ourselves, if Hillary Clinton had won on November 8th, would any of this be happening? After all, it was Obama who sought to ridicule, chastise and embarrass one Mitt Romney in 2012 when he stated Russia was our greatest geo-political foe. It was Obama who confided that he would have more “flexibility” after his reelection. And in his final press conference before whisking off to another vacation in Hawaii, Obama told us he admonished Vladimir Putin by telling him to “cut it out” — yeah, that’s REALLY gonna spook a former KGB Colonel and judo black belt.
So now, we’re supposed to believe Obama is all tough? Nah, this is just another instance of a fire being started by our present-day little Nero because he’s angry at being rejected. This is Obama being the petulant narcissist that recently told us he would have beaten Donald Trump if he ran for a third presidential term.
And I’ve been getting some inside baseball intelligence about the lack of cooperation in the Obama administration with the Trump landing teams. As stated, if Obama can’t have his way, he’ll be damned and will, as the Talking Heads sang it, be “burning down the house.”
And we have another example of how Obama is burning down our nation, leaving us unguarded.
As reported by Defense News, “The Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier strike group chopped out of the European theater of operations Dec. 26 and headed home to Norfolk after months of operating in the Arabian Gulf and the Mediterranean, where the strike jets of Carrier Air Wing 3 flew hundreds of missions against Islamic State group targets in Syria and Iraq.
The homecoming is set for Dec. 30 — two days shy of the Navy’s stated goal of bringing the group home in seven months. US carrier groups regularly relieve each other in theater, often handing off duties within sight of the other in the Arabian Gulf or Arabian Sea.
But this time, no carrier is in the Eisenhower’s wake. The relief ship, the carrier George H. W. Bush, has yet to leave Norfolk, and it’s unlikely to do so before the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, according to a Navy source.
The gap could last as long as two months, sources said, between the time the Eisenhower left the combat theater and the Bush arrives. And that gap comes at a particularly inopportune time. Numerous media reports indicate intelligence organizations and analysts are on the lookout for provocative actions by potential antagonists — in particular Russia, China, North Korea, Iran or ISIS.
Terror alerts, according to media reports, are high in many regions, including Europe, the Middle East and North America, due to a confluence of factors — the new year, ISIS’ diminishing power in the face of counterattacks in Iraq and Syria, and a natural tendency to test a new administration. Other Central Command carrier gaps have taken place in the past, usually when a strike group is needed elsewhere or maintenance issues at home have forced ships to deploy late. The Pentagon plans for such events, often dispatching expeditionary US Air Force units to the region to pick up the slack — something that seems to have taken place now. The newest gap is not a surprise, and actually has been months in the making — arguably well over a year.”
We reported here about the previous gap in carrier strike group coverage in the Middle East. During that period, the United States went to France to provide coverage — what does that say about our readiness? And what message does that send to our enemies…and sadly to our allies?
If you haven’t been paying attention, when was the last time you heard about Mosul? Remember that little supposed “October surprise” that would be a gift to Hillary Clinton from Barack Obama? Well, you can just imagine that if things were going well with the collapse of ISIS in Mosul, we’d be hearing about it…Obama would certainly be doing a victory dance and spiking the ball in the end zone. Nope, nada, and we now know we have no carrier strikes going on in the Middle East — twice in the last two years for Obama.
Hey, but remember, Osama bin Laden is dead — as if that really means anything at this moment — the global Islamic jihad has grown exponentially.
I said it before, and let me reiterate it again. All the Clintons did was steal the White House china upon departure, knowing their chosen successor, Al Gore, had lost. The Obamas are doing something far more heinous and nefarious: they are destroying our country before departing. And Obama will remain in DC, for what? I suppose he wants to ensure, like any good arsonist, that he can watch the fire burn. I wonder if Obama can play the violin?
