  • Obama Dishonors Memorial Day At Hiroshima

    05/28/2016 3:06:17 PM PDT · by Biggirl · 49 replies ^ | May 28, 2016 | Tom Tancredo
    Does anyone think it an accident that President Obama chose Memorial Day weekend to give his high-sounding moral equivalence speech in Hiroshima calling for a “moral revolution”? What Obama proposed in his speech in Japan is moral disarmament, and the consequences of that moral capitulation will be horrific if the world follows his advice.

    This is disturbing on a lot of levels. First, Christians don’t ask Muslims to pray for them. A Christian believes that the God of the Bible is the only God, and asking someone to pray to Allah is asking those people to put another God before Him, which is the first commandment. Secondly, no other world leader that is not a Muslim has ever done anything like this before. Obama sympathizes with a religion that literally wants to wipe us off the face of the planet. They kill women, children, gay people, or anyone that offends them. You would like...

    Obama Criticizes America During Presser with Malaysian P.M. Via the NYT: . . .Speaking at a news conference with Prime Minister Najib Razak, Mr. Obama treaded politely into these issues. He said he pressed Mr. Najib during their meeting about Malaysia’s civil liberties and human rights record, which has come under fresh scrutiny in recent weeks because of the legal travails of an opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. “The prime minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia has still got some work to do on these issues, just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do,”...

    When a Philippine government ship evaded a Chinese blockade in disputed waters of the South China Sea last month, a U.S. Navy plane swooped in to witness the dramatic encounter. The flyover was a vivid illustration of the expanding significance of one of Asia's most strategic regions and underscored a message that senior U.S. officials say President Barack Obama will make in Asia next week: The "pivot" of U.S. military and diplomatic assets toward the Asia-Pacific region is real. Washington's Asian allies, however, appear unconvinced.

    Late last night, the White House cancelled the whole trip, sending Secretary of State John Kerry in Obama’s place instead: President Obama has cancelled the rest of his trip to Asia next week, pulling out of summits in Indonesia and Brunei because of the ongoing government shutdown, the White House announced tonight. “The president made this decision based on the difficulty in moving forward with foreign travel in the face of a shutdown, and his determination to continue pressing his case that Republicans should immediately allow a vote to reopen the government,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in...

    ... Obama’s overtures to Asia have been built on the twin premises that the United States will be a reliable partner and that its democratic values are to be emulated. But Obama now finds himself preparing to leave for a week-long trip to the region amid the first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years —and facing political pressure to remain in Washington during the crisis. It marks a potential embarrassment for a president who has expressed a personal interest in strengthening the United States’ position in Asia.

    President Barack Obama on Sunday hailed the prospect of a new settlement freeze in the disputed West Bank as a promising step toward peace, urging Israelis and Palestinians to get back into serious negotiations quickly. An upbeat president also pledged to return to the basic principles that drove his thinking when he first came to the White House, including sticking to a more bipartisan tone and better explaining his decisions to the American people. He spoke of moving from an "obsessive focus" on policy and making changes to his approach after a humbling midterm election. "The fact that we are...
