Obama Fictionally Confronts Putin
President Barack Obama has been busy flying on a jet plane, visiting world dignitaries headlined by Pope Francis, and King Abdullah, and afterward, his startlingly slow methodical seemingly thoughtful answers to queries are not typical of his staccato rapid-fire speech triggered by his famous, but not now present teleprompter.
Obama has been on a tear, dancing and prancing on the world stage, as he attempts to restore some of the lost luster at home, due mainly to massive failure of his signature ObamaCare legislation. The undanceable melody of the last four years of the Obama presidency has been dour, dissonant, discordant, and here abroad might be the golden opportunity to once again raise the anointed one to his rightful place in world leadership.
But Obama is all talk and no action, as he responds to the Putin grab of Crimea as with nothing but meaningless words, effectuating the expulsion of Russia from the G-8 that now becomes the G-7, drawing nothing from the Putin strong man who brushes it away as he would a fly.
Obama plays a kids’ game of excluding less cool kids from their tree-house club. Now Putin has amassed up to 40,000 troops at the Russia-Ukraine border and is succeeding at restoration of the Old Russian Empire while Obama is succeeding with various forms of class warfare to dismantle the once “United” States of America. The last three underlying principles of the U.S. are the Constitution, English language, and Christian-Judeo principles, all seemingly vaporized as with a neutron bomb, but this nuclear option is “O-Bomb-AAUGH!” That hurt was thus expressed with each passing failure by the 1950s Charlie Brown character created by Charles M. Schulz in the Peanuts cartoon.
Former KGB Chief Vladimir Putin acts first and talks later if at all, while Obama fictionally confronts and reacts to Putin with meaningless talk, first, last, and always. Not that it is not a good thing that Obama does not knee-jerk react as he, to the regret and chagrin of America, has reacted badly in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan, causing new unforeseen problems while magnifying existing problems.
Putin was putting up a good front during the Olympics at Sochi, host of the 2014 Winter Olympics, but suddenly, without warning, annexation of Crimea was fait accompli, an object lesson for the cannabis-smoking Obama who talks first before he talks, and then talks about having talked about it.
Playing “devil’s advocate,” an objective question may be, “Why it is reprehensible that President Putin wants to restore the contiguous Russian Empire as existed a scant twenty years ago, while the U.S. does not have contiguous justification for its "ownership’ of Alaska, that as Governor Sarah Palin once said, ‘You could see Russia from Alaska?’”
Something more sinister to think about may be potential problems facing the U.S. in that Alaska once belonged to Russia and Putin may have eyes upon regaining the once Russian territory it can actually see from its mainland. Is the U.S. justified in threatening Russia President Putin for wanting to reannex the Ukraine and other contiguous Russian-speaking provinces? Russia state-owned Rostec Corporation claims it captured an American drone flying in Crimea at about 12,000 feet and invisible from the ground, by using complex radio-electronic technology…Troubling!
The State of Hawaii at 2563 miles from U.S. mainland at Los Angeles should not have been part of the U.S., but makes the U.S. more like the Roman Empire, spread across the globe. In addition to the non-contiguous states of Alaska and Hawaii, there are five foreign territories that have Congressional representation: American Samoa, District of Columbia (DC that is actually part of Virginia), Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Democrats are edging toward making solidly liberal DC a State in order to solidify Democratic power forever.
Compounding the above problems at the lower U.S. Southwest borders with Mexico, is mass illegal immigrant intrusion into the U.S. that “invaders” believe is in fact part of Mexico. Government claims immigrants number about 12 million, but the figure is closer to 30 million, as much as 10% of the entire U.S. population, and these, defined as already being citizens by “Slippery Tongue” V.P. Joe Biden. This growing segment as a group are so arrogant as to illegally vote, drive, evade taxes, while benefitting from government welfare largesse.
Then there are the proverbial 47% non-taxpayers receiving unearned government benefits. Could confluence of these three possibilities, not to mention government dictating limitations and denial of moral and religious liberties, spell the end of the American Empire? Better to consider it now than later when it will be too late. Uh oh. Check it out. Here we go. Game on already and unfortunately, all America has are Constitutional contrarians, President Barack Obama, and ultimate yes man, Attorney General Eric Holder.
Newton’s Third Law of Motion is alive and well, but politically ignored; “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Obama voids this law as well, unless “No Reaction” is considered to be “Reaction.”
Either John W. Newbern or Nicholas Murray Butler, probably the latter, said it first; “People can be divided into three groups: Those who make things happen, Those who watch things happen, Those who wonder what happened.” Evidently Putin makes things happen, but count President Barack Obama, GOP House Speaker John Boehner, and most current leaders, as those who wonder what happened, not to mention the rest of America that has its hands full just trying to keep their religious beliefs and Obama limited number of jobs.
