Obama Colluding With Left to Subvert His Own Afghan War Policy
Big Government ^ | 12/7/2009 | Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King

Posted on 12/07/2009 11:27:43 AM PST by markomalley

[Note: This is the latest segment in an ongoing series about Code Pink and its co-founder Jodie Evans.  Click [1]here [1] to read earlier articles.]

In a move by the Obama administration that is gallingly cynical and would be considered treasonous in a less progressive era, a message sent by Code Pink [2] and an article published [3] by the left wing online publication AlertNet indicates the White House is working with the left wing terrorist support group Code Pink to agitate the public and undermine President Barack Obama’s newly announced Afghanistan war policy.

obama-mcchrystal

Top Obama funder, Code Pink co-founder and terrorist supporter Jodie Evans [4] wrote at AlterNet of a White House initiated phone call she received last week, two days after Obama’s Afghan war speech at West Point. The Obama official said the administration wanted to “consult” with Code Pink in response to the group’s e-mail campaign targeting the White House with opposition to the president’s surge strategy.

However, it appears that the Obama administration was already in consultation with Code Pink before this reported phone call. In its message to supporters, Code Pink guaranteed their e-mails would be read by someone in the White House.

It’s time to turn our outrage into sustained action. Use our quick and easy tool to send your response to Obama’s announcement to the Executive Office of the President–where it will be read by a member of Obama’s team! Let them know that you are mad as hell and will push back on the escalation. It is our job to continue to press them as we move forward.”

In the article at AlterNet, Jodie Evans gloats about Code Pink’s success, noting the Obama official called “three minutes” after the e-mail campaign was launched.

“It was working! Impassioned CODEPINKers all over the globe were being heard inside the White House!

Obama has been consulting with Jodie Evans for nearly three years since first inviting her to co-host the breakthrough Hollywood fundraiser in February 2007 [5] that made his presidential candidacy a serious contender. He appointed her a bundler for his campaign [6] and took tens of thousands of dollars in contributions [7] from her for his Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund campaign vehicles.

Obama’s last known meeting with Jodie Evans was in October [4] when she gave him an antiwar propaganda package based on her recent trip to Kabul. While in Afghanistan, she met with members of the Taliban [8], according to her friend Jane Fonda. Obama allowed himself to be filmed [9] accepting the propaganda package.

Jodie Evans and Code Pink have a well documented history of working to bring about America’s defeat in the war on terror. They have the blood of America’s soldiers on their hands from funding “the other side” in Fallujah [10], acting as a mouthpiece [11] for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad [12] and sympathizing with Osama bin Laden. [13]

Obama and his team know this, yet they continue to work with Jodie Evans and Code Pink as Obama sends more of America’s sons and daughters to fight Code Pink’s allies overseas.

Obama is sending thousands of patriotic Americans into harm's way to possibly be killed or maimed for life in order to provide political cover for an eventual surrender. Is their any more proof required that this evil slimeball hates America and hates good patriotic Americans? If your husband or father or son or daughter or other loved is killed in these next 18 months you can be assured he gave his life to promote Obama's political career.

Thanks for posting this excerpt.

There's more to the article at the source link.

Impeachment starts in the House Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by John Conyers.

Conyers serves on the board of the Progressive Democrats of America--alongside Code Pink's Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin.

I've said it before and I'll say it some more - Code Stink is more than just mere "protestors" - they are made up of enemy agents actively engaging in hostile activity against the People of the United States. Period.

Those on this site who support Obama’s War and Obama’s escalation of that war will do anything to avoid the logical implication of their decision: they are on Obama’s side!!! Those of us who oppose Obama’s War, however, know better. When this war proves to be a disaster, the conservatives who are now giving him our blood and treasure will be partly to blame. The supporters of Obama’s War can’t have it both ways. Either they are for him or against him. Those who oppose Obama’s War are the only ones who are clearly against him.

Obama can’t send the troops anywhere UNLESS conservatives vote to cut off funding for Obama’s War and demand that we bring home the troops home. Are you willing to do so? If not, you are just as guilty as Obama for any consequences.

I don't understand what this means.

My point is Obama has announced he is going to withdraw in 18 months and is working with Code Pink and other leftist anti-American groups to undermine our troops and to help ensure defeat.

Okay then, the logical implication of your position is that we should bring the troops home NOW, rather than let them suffer needleessly through inevitable defeat, right? Let me ask you more directly: do you think Congress should vote yes or vote no when they are asked to approve Obama's request to send MORE troops to Afghanistan? Voting present is not option.

NO...would be an unmistakeable vote of "no confidence" in 0bama. But they won't.

Fine...but that's not a realistic option until at least the next election. As a purely practical matter, American lives are at stake in the here and now. Again, in the next few weeks, Congress will vote directly on Obama's request to send more troops to Afghanistan. Do you think it should vote yes or no on this request? There will be no third choice.

Bingo. Those conservatives who will vote Yes (which they will) will share the blame for the consequences. Whether or not they like it, they can be considered Obama's allies pure and simple, regardless of their rhetoric.

If the current situation is expected to remain in place and there is little or no chance to develop a winning strategy then I would vote no. If there was a good chance to reverse the political situation and put a winning strategy in place I would vote yes. I am not playing both sides, I believe that the decision depends on whether the current situation in Washington can be reversed.

Obama Orders 1 Million US Troops To Prepare For Civil War

http://www.theobamafile.com/ObamaLatest.htm
(3rd entry down)

The European Union Times reports that Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that Barack Obama has issued orders to his Northern Command’s (USNORTHCOM) top leader, US Air Force General Gene Renuart, to “begin immediately” increasing his military forces to 1 million troops by January 30, 2010, in what these reports warn is an expected outbreak of civil war within the United States before the end of winter.

According to these reports, Obama has had over these past weeks “numerous” meetings with his war council about how best to manage the expected implosion of his Nations banking system while at the same time attempting to keep the United States military hegemony over the World in what Russian Military Analysts state is a “last ditch gambit” whose success is “far from certain”.

And to Obama’s “last ditch gambit,” these reports continue, he is to announce in a nationwide address to his people this coming week that he is going to expand the level of US Military Forces in Afghanistan by tens of thousands of troops, while at the same time using the deployment of these soldiers as a “cover” for returning to the United States over 200,000 additional American soldiers from the over 800 bases in over 39 countries they have stationed around the Globe bringing the level of these forces in America to over 1 million, a number the US Military believes will be able to contain the “explosion of violence” expected to roil these peoples when they learn their economy has been bankrupted.

^^^^^^^^^^^
Note: The European Union Times isn’t welcome on Free Republic. It seems to attract many anti-semites - I just ignore all morons anyway, but the article is interesting.

Considering that both Hussein and his Chewbacca ARE terrorists and have been for years (hussein being groomed as one, chewie to manage/oversee him and give him legal and political cover), this is no surprise.

This is probably not something to be excited about.

Backgrounder: These are all basically fundriasing communications. Such messages (from the Right or the Left) are always basically “We are winning really big... the end is near... send us money so we can finish off the right wing.” or “We are losing big.... the end is near.... send us money so the right wing doesn't finish us off!”

The line “where it will be read by a member of Obama’s team” is used to try to convince the reader that the writing organization has some inside track at the WH, Congress, the State House, wherever. It's not a lie. All emails are read by “a member of Obama’s team.” It's some 19 year intern ensuring there are no threats and counting how many are pro, how many are anti. Some thing with letters and phone calls. They are called the “wet finger’ staffers, because they keep a “wet finger” up in the air to see which way “the wind (of public opinion) is blowing.”

The secret is to see where the emails are addressed to. if it's to the regular WH inbox, it's BS, and will be dealth with as described above.

Sender gets back a generic... “Thanks for writing. The President greatly appreciates it. He will keep your thoughts in mind as he makes his important decisions, yada, yada yada” email reply.

If it goes to a non .gov box, then it's going to the organization, Code Pink, etc, where the sender's email address is saved for future fund-raising and then automatically printed out and also sent electronically to the WH. Then they make a big show of delivering the boxed “Tens of thousands of ordinary people's emails, begging the President to.....”

This gives the org political clout.

As I said, it's all BS.

Here is what some others have said:
Masooda Jalal
Ms. Jalhal, the former Afghan minister of women, bluntly told her both were needed. "It is good for Afghanistan to have more troops – more troops committed with the aim of building peace and against war, terrorism, and security – along with other resources," she answered. "Coming together they will help with better reconstruction."
Shinkai Karokhail (an Afghan member of Parliament and woman activist)
"In the current situation of terrorism, we cannot say troops should be withdrawn," "International troop presence here is a guarantee for my safety."
Medea Benjamin
"That's where we have opened ourselves, being here, to some other possibilities. We have been feeling a sense of fear of the people of the return of the Taliban. So many people are saying that, 'If the US troops left the country, would collapse. We'd go into civil war.' A palpable sense of fear that is making us start to reconsider that."
http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/1006/p06s10-wosc.html
Scott Horton (Antiwar.com)
Horton: Um, okay. Well, I guess, you know, I’m for that. You know, I’m an individualist and a libertarian and I believe in natural rights for all people no matter where they are.
Horton: Well now there is a real problem here in a sense of... this is the “catastrophe in waiting,” the worst case scenario, is when the Belgians pulled out of Rwanda and left a minority group that they and propped up in power all along high and dry, and the majority came and got their revenge, and it was an absolute bloody mess...

That's nice -- it means Code Pink is on a watch list. Obama has already gotten everything out of them that he needs; no matter what he does, he knows they'll go down like zombies in 2010 and 2012 and vote for the Demwits on the menu. But he's not going to do anything with them, merely handle them with good public relations.

My kids were seriously contemplating getting out of the military. Then, they concluded, our country needs us now more than ever, they will protect and defend the constitution of the United States. No matter what Obama wants, he’s in for trouble if he seriously messes with our soldiers. They feel like they’re on ‘standby’, ready for business with the marxists. It’s just not my kids. It’s all the guys in their platoon, in their division. You saw it on the cadet’s faces at West Point. You see it everywhere, you can feel it. When we unleash, it’s going to be BIG. Our constitution specifically says, we can remove a rouge government. We’re near there. Americans are patient, we’re almost out of patience.
