Obama Revealed in Guatemala Policy

Posted By Dr. Armando de la Torre & Steve Hecht On May 21, 2014 @ 12:25 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

If you were observing U.S. diplomacy in search of the curious – and you had decided to eavesdrop at one of its remotest, least-visited quarters – you would go to the Central American republic of Guatemala, where you would find something quite revealing about the nature of Barack Obama.

This is not an exercise for a slow day. America’s diplomacy in Guatemala is a devastating exposé of Obama’s political character. Through U.S. actions in Guatemala—far more than in Benghazi, in the Ukraine, in the Middle East or elsewhere—Obama stands forth, undisguised, as a left-wing radical. If this stuff were happening in the U.S., or in other regions that get any kind of spotlight, people would be confused about it because Obama’s gigantic spin-machine would be making them dizzy. But this stuff is happening in Guatemala, and Obama feels no need to apply the spin because no one from the United States is looking.

Well, almost no one.

In Guatemala, Obama’s machinations are made clear by how the U.S. embassy is interfering with the country’s internal matters. And those interventions are occurring in a way that will likely cause you to miss them; because the embassy’s interventions are being done in Spanish only. Its statements are not announced or catalogued in English; and they go unmentioned in U.S. media.

Except in this one.

On April 22, the U.S. embassy in Guatemala issued a statement criticizing the Guatemalan bar association for sanctioning Judge Yassmin Barrios; the lawyers’ guild had seen fit to suspend her from the practice of law for one year. You would think that the embassy could stay out of a matter like this. But Judge Barrios is a favorite of the U.S.—and even of the White House—because she served as the judge in the Ríos Montt genocide trial. Indeed, Barrios had been sanctioned for her actions during that case. But just before the sanctions, she had received the State Department’s “International Women of Courage” Award of 2014 for her actions in the same case—and received the award, in Washington, from none other than First Lady Michelle Obama.

The rest of history

Ø was revealed a bit earlier than Guatemala... he revealed himself quite well 6 years ago with Honduras and Zelaya.

[and before that as well: O'Dinga should ring a bell]

Is there any truth to the vicious, Vicious rumor that Obama only uses phrases in his teleprompter speeches that are approved favorites of the White House Focus Groups?

I’ve noticed how often a phase is repeated by Obama and his Lying Den Staff on a specific topic, and wondered if there is a separate WH Focus Group for each new topic that Obama reads about in his weekly newspaper?

For example, on the topic of Accountability of himself in his duties of his elected office, Obama’s speeches always deflect an investigation AWAY from himself: “I will get to the BOTTOM of this!” is a commonly used by Obama, AND is a rumored favorite soundbite of the WH Focus Group.

Although Obama uses the “deflection soundbite method” to distract and deflect attention away from any culpability that is his, the skeptical listener is always left with the inescapable impression that Obama is covering up a major Dereliction of Duty, again.

Rarely does Obama use Harry Truman’s Ultimate Commander in Chief phrase: “The Buck stops here.”

Some White House Residents are just not cut out to also be a Commander in Chief. That must depress Vets that voted for Obama, twice.

Both Harry and Barry were Democrats, but look how much the Democrat Party has changed, and America is the worst for it - - - .

These must be tough times for a Democrat to claim Obama as his/her Mentor and Leader - - - .

BTW, Guatemala has not yet been included in Obama’s Checklist of the 57 States, at least as of this last week’s weekly newspaper.

Jay Carney found it in Obama’s Golf Bag, unread.

Democrats are now communists and Republicans are now Democrats. Conservatives, formerly admired as patriots, are treated as uncool dangerous weirdo racist homophobes.

Amazing with the media’s help how well Alinsky works. And guess what, they’ve made huge changes, but the poor are still poor, in fact there are more, the nation is just about bankrupt and we’ve lost our former position in the world. So what did they gain but a lot of money for their cronies. It’s always about the money and who gets it.

Don’t forget the word “period”, always uttered after the most spectacular examples of falsehood.

We, the People, are voters who,
Vote as we see fit, for good or bad.

Now comes the Division,
And Polarization too.

Thus we are ‘near conquered,
As Divided we stand,
One on THE Rock,
The other on sand - - - -
