Skip to comments.The New START Treaty: President Obama is pushing for a monumental surrender to Russia
Posted on 12/14/2010 10:24:31 AM PST by Nachum
The Obama administration has an impeccable track record of caving in to Russian demands, as part of its controversial reset policy. Last year, it threw key US allies Poland and the Czech Republic under the bus, ditching plans for Third Site missile defences in deference to Russian opposition. It is now planning another surrender to Moscow, by pressing for Senate ratification of the new START Treaty in the lame duck session of Congress.
Instead of allowing the newly elected Congress to vote on the treaty, the Obama administration is trying to ram New START through without proper debate. No major treaty has ever been forced through Congress in a lame duck session.
There is mounting opposition in Washington to the New START Treaty, which would significantly weaken US security by undermining Americas ability to deploy an effective global missile defence system. Dozens of senators, as well as several leading likely Republican presidential candidates are opposed to the Treaty, including Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich. As Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina has warned:

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
We understand that. The United States of America and no other Nation or movement is obama’s and the Democrat Party’s enemy.
Gosh! Even the people in the UK understand that there’s something wrong with the forcing of the START treaty in a lame duck session. Wonder why we don’t hear more statements of outrage from our own citizens?
They will do everything they can to destroy America befor the 1st. A last desperate attack. RINOS are collaborating.
Didn’t anyone on free Republic read the interviews that I posted that came from the man who went to school with Barack insane Obama at Occidental College? Didn’t all of you read what he said?
This was at age 18 or 19do you think Obama has changed at all since then?
Or has he just hidden it so that he could get elected?
Dr. John C Drew, PhD, stated over and over again to any media that would listen, that Obama was a rabid Marxist at schooland that he feels all the rich people got their money unfairly, by stealing it from all the poor people.
And, as Joe the plumber found out, he plans to rectify that by redistributing the wealththat means taking your savings and your yearly earnings and confiscating it and taxing it to death until the government controls all that money that they can hand out now to more worthy people, people that are more worthy than youyou are not worthy because you work.
You are not worthy because you paid your mortgage. You’re not worthy because you saved up moneythis means that you are a scurvy dog, because as he TOLD Dr. Drew, rich people could only possibly get all their money by stealing it from poor people -—they took it from the poor people and they are unworthy of having it and now Barack Obama thinks he has all the power in the world and is going to give it back to where it came from i.e. the leeches and the non-workers of America.
Google John C Drew and listen and judge for yourself !!!
I don’t know how monumental it would be, but should Obamao go to Russia and surrender himself, it would be cause for celebration. The rest of us could send him cookies and toilet paper.
I wonder if General Betrayus is supporting Zero’s decision?
>>These are the types of radical things we won’t be able to turn around after this America hating socialist is thrown out in ‘12.<<
No, these are the types of radical things we won’t be able to turn around after this America hating socialist is thrown out in ‘12 UNLESS THE GOP STARTS SHOWING US SOME BACKBONE.
Canceling a treaty takes balls and backbone, the two things the GOP is severely lacking in it’s present form.
I agree insomuch as it is possible to cancel a treaty. I have little faith with the Lame Ducker GOP after they decided to go along with this Bush tax cut extension. This thing is a pork laden mess that could have been handled in the new congress. We could have made them permanent with out any further provisions.
I always default to the idea the GOP establishment types will handle a fight with Obummer with a limp wrist.
I wonder how Obama ever became President, who backed him, sealed his records, paid for his education, paid for his travel expenses.
Which is what he was pushing for as a teenager.
It’s just thirty years late.
He wants America to die. As slaves.
