Mr. Obama Goes Abroad Again, International Skills Still Sorely Lacking

"Islam has shaped the world for the better, including in the United States." It must be true, because Barack Hussein Obama spoke those words in Turkey today, to a large Muslim audience over Al Jazerra TV. He also said that the "U.S. is not at war with Islam and will never be." Jihadists will be so relieved to hear that. These statements were spoken the same day that Secretary Gates presented an austere military budget to Congress in the face of massive domestic expenditures to radically and rapidly provide new advantages to the "underprivileged."

MSNBC's commentator assured viewers that Obama's new view of the U.S. and its relationship to the Muslim world is being received with widespread approval and reflects the majority US view on this matter. Said commentator also pointed to Obama's great advantage in having "Muslim" relatives. Evidently, no one has explained to this pseudo-journalist that to have Muslims in your family is like being "a little bit Jewish" - which is, itself, like being a "little bit pregnant" - ie, these modifiers all describe a condition that does not exist. If you are pregnant, Jewish or Muslim, you simple are. Period. Isn't it odd that the same Presidential candidate who attacked any opponent for falsely claiming he is Muslim - or even referring to his own middle name, Hussein - now wears his affinity for the Muslim world on his sleeve for all the world to see.

That Obama indeed has a Muslim heritage is long an established fact. However, his inability to accurately assess overseas reactions to his public presentations could be a danger to us all. Witness his full depth body bow and kiss on the hand of Saudi Arabian leader below. It doesn't take a body-language expert to read those gestures. When combined with the language of his televised speech above- and insipid overlooking of North Korea's aggression toward our Japanese allies, an undeniable signal is being sent - and it is not one of strength or leadership.

Also today, North Korea's of a missile over Japan was responded to with harsh words by Obama - but little else to back them up. As a North Korea expert on Lou Dobbs tonight pointed out, the tepid US reaction to North Korea's flagrant UN violations is perceived by their Communist government - and the leadership of their ally, China, as further signs of U.S. weakness.

While closer to home, it was announced today that, within 10 days, travel visas to Cuba will relax considerably. Bear in mind this is the same Cuba that is currently making plans for weaponry support off its coast by China, treacherously close to Florida's shoreline. Simultaneously Cuba's new Castro works closely with Chavez, who has been making plans for his dictator led country to receive similar support - off the Venezuelan coast - by none other than Russia.

It's now glaringly apparent, however unfortunate, that Joe Biden got it right in his puzzling, controversial pre-election statement. He stated that within 6 months of an Obama administration a danger to the U.S. would be posed from abroad and Americans would not be pleased with Obama's response. Lest any forget, mark his words and this post. An unconscious U.S. is now being surrounded with building military maneuvers by adversaries at the same time Obama- whether due to lack of judgment or lack of interest - signals these same adversaries that the U.S. is now humble, apologetic and ready to defer to their interests. . . . so countdown is 3 months down and less than 3 more to go.

Just days earlier, Obama assured the G20 - which offered no compliance of its own with his requests - that the US will comply with their demands for international controls to be placed on U.S. banks and related industries. This didn't seem to concern him either. Could be he was still basking in the glow of the UK Queen's gracious receipt of an ipod, loaded in advance with videos of his speeches, in case she missed some of them.

Curtsy due same Queen for her finesse in restoring her equilibrium and grace after being unexpectedly manhandled by Mrs. Obama. Faux pas in Britain, apologias elsewhere and full bows to Islam.... and Main Stream Media wags on commending how Obama is recovering a US image tainted by an inept, distant Bush. There must be some humor in this . . . at least for a few more months to the countdown on our sovereignty, economic prosperity and national security.

We can only suppose that Congress and MSNBC will appear to be appropriately surprised!

Obama Lies-Senate Uses Sneak Attack On Guns

Press release from the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms sent out via NewsMax. I'm leaving in the plea for donations, usually I'd either take 'em out or not post the release, but this info sounds pretty critical.

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama deliberately and repeatedly lied to America's 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone's firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

Now House Republicans are trying to add an amendment to the public lands "Ominous Spending" lands bill that would codify the right to carry concealed weapons in national parks, less than a week after a federal judge blocked a similar proposal.

But, Senate leaders have devised a strategy to use a bill that had already passed the House -- H.R. 146, a proposal to protect Revolutionary War battlefields -- and strip its contents, replacing it with the "Ominous Spending" lands bill. Because the House already passed H.R. 146, the Rules Committee can approve a closed rule that would block a motion to recommit, eliminating the GOP's best procedural chance to stymie the bill. The chamber would only need a simple majority vote to concur with the Senate amendment.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to the "Ominous Spending" lands bill tactic to force more gun control on U.S. citizen's said "the sneak attack on guns reveals the Democrats clear intention to outlaw guns everywhere" "Obama "has been lying to the nation when he says he will not take guns away."

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly placed an injunction on the Interior rule last week. The judge's ruling infringed on the rights of gun owners as drivers in areas such as Washington, D.C., often drive through federal park lands every day.

Rob Bishop (R-Utah) said "It's ridiculous for people to be subject to two different sets of regulations simply because their car moved a few feet," Bishop said in a statement. "The judge's decision last week was wrong."

"We warned America that Obama's 'support' for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric," he stated, "and now his support for the "Ominous Spending" lands bill shows Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying."

"Right now," said Gottlieb, "I wouldn't take Obama's word if he said it rains a lot in Seattle. Apparently, law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear unless they drive to work in Washington DC and park or drive in the wrong place."
