Sarah Palin: The Audacity of Obama’s Intentions Revealed
Sarah Palin's Facebook Notes ^ | March 26, 2012 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 03/26/2012 6:24:42 PM PDT by Timber Rattler

Whoever chooses to merely dismiss the significance of today’s exchange between our President and Russia’s President should have their intelligence and patriotism questioned. Let this exchange be a warning to voters: President Obama will have “more flexibility” to weaken us if he’s re-elected in November. He was caught speaking candidly to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev before a “hot mic” today (and surely one must believe he didn’t know the mics were still on; surely he’s not so audacious as to purposefully broadcast his intentions), as reported by ABC’s Jake Tapper. Here’s the exchange:

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

Let’s consider what this “flexibility” might mean. We know that he has repeatedly conceded to foreign demands and backed down on missile defense. I pointed this out as Governor of Alaska when he proposed reducing Alaska’s missile defense system capabilities. I explained then that the President’s proposed military cuts would diminish Alaska’s opportunity to defend the union with our strategic location’s defense infrastructure. We also know that in 2009, as part of his “reset” with Russia, President Obama turned his back on our Eastern European allies by abandoning past promises for a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

We can’t know for certain what this newly revealed “flexibility” means, but considering President Obama’s past actions, be sure it won’t involve a position of strength for America and our allies. Russia has been thwarting us on one issue after another, including the rushed-through New START Treaty that many of us questioned after Obama insisted America ratify it first, then allow Russia to sit on it – unratified on their end – until it suited that foreign power’s needs.

Meanwhile, North Korea is planning another long-range missile launch, and the United States and our allies are still vulnerable to the threat of ballistic missiles. Our president has done nothing to alleviate this vulnerability; in fact, he’s done just the opposite. He has consistently taken a position of weakness and naïve trust in Putin’s Russia. Consider that one-sided New START Treaty as an example of this. Or consider those cuts to Alaska’s missile defense system, which leaves us much more vulnerable in the face of a nuclear North Korea. Now consider the state of our national defense under a President who whispers to a foreign power that he needs even “more flexibility” to weaken us further.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2863996/posts

from the congressman’s letter:

“As you know, in the FY12 National Defense Authorization Act, Congress enacted, and you signed into law, a provision constraining your ability to share classified U.S. missile defense information with the Russian Federation. Congress took this step because it was clear based on official testimony and Administration comments in the press that classified information about U.S. missile defenses, including hit-to-kill technology and velocity at burnout information, may be on the table as negotiating leverage for your reset with Russia. Despite signing the FY12 defense authorization legislation into law, you then issued a signing statement signaling that you may treat that provision protecting U.S. missile defense information as non-binding. This morning’s comments, on top of that action, suggests that you and your administration have plans for U.S. missile defenses that you believe will not stand up to electoral scrutiny.”

does this strike anyone else as incredible??

congress taking steps to restrict the president on fears he will leak national secrets to our enemies / adversaries ??

And, if he is walking into traps, you can be assured he will find a way to blame it on anyone else...it could never be his fault.

It’s time to take back the country. Bouncing this bozo as soon as possible would be a great start.

Newt is on Hannity now and talking about the traitor in chief. He’s making some great points as to guessing how many other countries Obama has promised to get rid of our Nukes (Iran, North Korea?)

Newt says he’s had Obama on defense all week on energy and says he plans to keep him on defense on many issues through the summer. Gotta love him...

I also hope the GOP plans to have Sarah Palin speak at the convention. She will ELECTRIFY the country!!!

Then the GOP really is deaf & dumb. She’s a red meat speaker and one that can get everyone to support the nominee and get the masses to the polls.

Not only that, but if Romney is the nominee - the GOP establishment OWES the conservatives some homage and respect because they NEED us to win.

And I see this off mic moment being the turning point for many "on-the-fence", uninformed, 6pm news watchers getting us back to where we could be...sadly, the uniformed are the future of this country.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."

-- Marcus Tullius Cicero

Where is the outrage from all the Republican Senators, Congresspersons?

Where is the outrage of the media?

The outrage of the citizens of The United States of America?

0bama has stated he wants a nuclear free world.

It appears he is well on his way to giving away our ability to defend our country and our way of life.

This is beyond politics and yes we are so screwed if we allow it to happen.

Just the credible threat of developing missile defense brought the Soviet Union to bankruptcy. I'm sure many of us remember the middle years of Ronald Reagan's presidency, the demonstrations of technology the rest of the world has only very recently begun to catch up to.

A wing-launched missile from Hawaii destroyed SolarMAX.

From an Air Force classified Space Shuttle mission there was a demonstration of blue laser technology with the incredible ability to track submarines underwater from low Earth orbit.

Within days of those events, that happened after President Reagan told Gorbachev "Neyt!" - and the Soviets suddenly want to "talk" again.

The die was cast, and the rest is history, but especially the billions spent on developing missile defense over decades since. It continues to be an ace in the hole, and a burr under the saddle of the Old Left on both sides of the North Pole.

The Usurper is the Manufactured Candidate, still fighting the losing side of the ancient Nuclear Freeze debate, still determined to "rid the world" of the primary weapon that has nearly kept the peace since the end of World War II.

It's crushing heartbreak to watch.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

I extremely doubt that the "space for you..." was a reference to the USA or him as leader of the USA. The "you" being Obama personally, not as the leader of the USA, but whatever it is that he is going after. Is it wealth and power? ?Do the Russians know that his true aspiration is to be leader of the world? It would have been something if the Russian had finished his sentence. Then it would likely have been really over for OB. Pray, that by God's grace, truth is let loose.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

Under this paragraph is the comment with the last part of the comment of the Russian leader, the damning part, as playing on the video clip of a Romney interview about it on CNN. The last part of the comment is the part that really shows collusion with Russia.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.

The Russian stands with Obama, even though whatever it is, Obama won't do it until after the election, because what he is plotting with the Russians about, the USA electorate would not like it to the point of Obama being concerned about the election. So we are to understand that the Russians stand with him, but if we knew about Obama's plans, we wouldn't. It seems that we have a traitor here.

Perhaps your namesake can answer that question:
