Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America, and he has in many ways. From health care to energy policy, even the meaning of marriage, much has changed since 2008. But he has also fundamentally transformed America's foreign policy — largely to the benefit of our enemies. Under the Obama/Kerry foreign policy, the world has become unmoored. That is the conclusion of Lee Smith's latest column at The Weekly Standard.
Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America, and he has in many ways. From health care to energy policy, even the meaning of marriage, much has changed since 2008. But he has also fundamentally transformed America’s foreign policy — largely to the benefit of our enemies.
Under the Obama/Kerry foreign policy, the world has become unmoored. That is the conclusion of Lee Smith’s latest column at The Weekly Standard.
Smith reminds us that at the end of the day, it is Obama who is calling the shots, fundamentally transforming America’s foreign policy and, in the process, the world. Lee writes:
“… it’s the president who is giving Iran concession after concession… while Obama lets critics at home and abroad stick Kerry with the charge of appeasement. But it’s not really appeasement — it’s an Obama reeducation program. He’s correcting American foreign policy…
"Obama offers a different kind of thinking: Publicly insulting American allies is honorable. The only way to avoid war is to consort with a state sponsor of terror. Peace and security is the result of giving tens of billions of dollars to a regime that is making war across the Middle East.
"It’s a travesty.”
Think about the beneficiaries of Obama’s foreign policy: Obama relaxed restrictions on Cuba. He “reset” relations with Russia. He removed sanctions on Iran.
He allowed the Arab Spring to turn into a nightmare. In fact, Obama is in the Middle East this week answering for the chaos he largely created.
ESPN — Shilling For The Left
ESPN, the Disney-owned sports network, fired baseball legend Curt Schilling [Wednesday] for expressing his views, on his personal Facebook page, about the ongoing bathroom battles. His firing is yet another example of the intolerance of the left.
In a statement announcing its decision, ESPN bizarrely claimed that it was “an inclusive organization.” That Orwellian statement is clearly contradicted by reality. ESPN is not inclusive when it comes to mainstream opinions about men using women’s restrooms.
Most Americans share Schilling’s views. But ESPN apparently has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to common sense.
By the way, isn’t it amazing how anti-science the left has become?
Anyone who has a high school textbook can look up how sex is biologically defined. It’s not just being born with certain organs. Every cell has a chromosome that determines your gender.
You can remove certain body parts and wear different clothing. But you can also give a cell from your body to a scientist and he can determine your gender at birth without ever looking at you. Having surgery will not make you a woman any more than grafting a horn on your head will make you a unicorn.
Tubman On The Twenty
The Treasury Department announced a lot of changes to our currency [Wednesday]. The most notable was that abolitionist Harriet Tubman is replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. She was a woman who embodied everything that is good about America, and the change is a fine thing to do.
But I would urge those who agree with this choice to start their grassroots organizing now. As sure as night follows day, I predict there will be an effort to block her or perhaps take her off at some stage, and no the effort won’t come from conservatives.
Sadly, the left doesn’t know much about history. As soon as liberals learn that Harriet Tubman was a gun-toting, evangelical, heterosexual Republican, her days on the $20 will be numbered!
