Obama’s Treachery and Republican Silence
When will they stop pretending this is a normal presidency?

By David Horowitz

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists.

Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries of state praised the animal Bashar Assad as a “reformer” and a man of “peace,” helping him to thwart his domestic opposition. The Islamic State was born out of the Syrian chaos that ensued.

Far worse was Obama’s open support for America’s mortal enemy, the Muslim Brotherhood, spawner of al-Qaeda and Hamas. During the “Arab Spring,” Obama essentially put America’s weight behind the legitimization of this murderous organization that had been outlawed for 40 years for its assassinations and conspiracies against the Egyptian regime. Secretary of State Clinton gave totally unfounded assurances to the world that the Brotherhood was ready to become part of the democratic process and give up its 90-year holy war against infidels, Jews in particular but also — and explicitly — America. During the Brotherhood’s brief tenure as the government in Egypt Obama gave these genocidal zealots more than a billion dollars in American aid and F-16 fighter-bombers that could easily reach Israel’s major population centers, which for 60 years the Brotherhood had sworn to destroy.

By his feckless interventions in the Middle East, and his tacit support for the chief organization of Islam’s terror war against the West, Obama has set the Middle East on fire. All the violence in the crescent from Gaza to Iraq, including Hamas’s genocidal war against Israel, has been encouraged by Obama’s support for the Brotherhood and hostility toward the Jewish state.

Characteristic of this encouragement was his illegal intervention in Libya, which violated every principle that Obama and the Democrats invoked to attack President Bush and undermine America’s war against the Saddam regime and the terrorists in Iraq. Thanks to Obama, Libya is now in the hands of the terrorists and thousands of Libyans are fleeing to Tunisia and Egypt. Thanks to Obama, the Christian communities of Iraq, which date back to the time of Christ, are being slaughtered.

Because of Obama’s aversion to America’s role as a keeper of international peace, the tyrant Putin has been able to swallow Crimea and threaten the rest of Ukraine. Since his election in 2009, Obama’s policies have been responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people and will result in the deaths of tens of thousands more. Thanks to his efforts to destroy America’s borders, Americans may be included in this grim toll. Certainly, Americans are now threatened by terrorists as never before.

Where is the Republican opposition? Why are Republicans still treating Obama as though his were a normal presidency and not a national disgrace? Why are there no indictments of Obama for the carnage he has enabled?

There is one foreign policy area where Republicans have shown some fight: Benghazi. But the fight here has been over an inquiry — important in its own right, but not a political challenge to Obama’s efforts to sabotage and degrade the country he is supposed to lead.

We know the basic facts. Obama’s team was trying to monitor and recapture the weapons we had helped supply to Islamist militias in Libya. That was Ambassador Stevens’s mission. No security was provided because Stevens’s mission had to be secret and plausibly deniable in the middle of an election in which Obama was running on the cynical lie that the war on terror had been won. During the battle waged by American heroes against the terrorists’ assault in Benghazi, the president and his secretary of state went A.W.O.L. and left these brave Americans to die. Instead of honoring them and hunting down their killers, Obama then took off for a fundraiser in Las Vegas. This was surely the most shameful individual act by a president in the history of the White House.

Having abandoned these American heroes and their families, Obama and his minions then lied to the American people about the terrorist attack and used it as an occasion to defend the Prophet Mohammed in a U.N. address to the world. This series of acts showed Obama’s contempt for the American military, contempt for the American people, and sympathy for America’s enemies, an attitude that has been revealed over and over again.

When will Republicans gather the courage to start speaking truth to power?

Everything David Horowitz says is correct.  I hate to keep saying the same things over and over - but where in the hell IS the Republican Party?  They have so much money to spend to defeat their primary opponents - why do they not spend some of that money on commercials airing on tv channels that the LIV typically watch?  Commercials that show clips of Obama's own words juxtaposed with the reality of what he has actually done. 

Would this not be a way to fight this lying traitor Obama and at the same time fight the Democrat party?  We have an election coming up in a few months, what is the GOP's strategy - and I mean a REAL concrete strategy that we can all see and hear = what is their strategy to defeat the Democrats???  I keep hearing about how it is so crucial for them to win this Fall - and make no mistake, IT IS. 

If we cannot lay out these things in a direct challenge to Democrat leadership - if we can't just relay the facts to the LIV - how can we win? 

With all of the failures of this administration, with debacles on a world-stage level - if we cannot articulate a case to the American people NOW - when?

The GOP has it's priorities. First, they must do the bidding of the Chamber of Commerce. Second, and almost as important, they must crush the Tea Party. With those two big items on their to do list, Obama and the Democrats aren't on the radar.

Your observation is ludicrously correct.  I can only say that misplacement of priorities seems to be prevalent in the entire world today.  The Middle East is literally on fire and Russia is flexing her bear claws.  Tens of thousands - if not hundreds of thousands - of people throughout the world are being held and trafficked in slavery and that many or more are being persecuted, tortured or brutally murdered for their religious beliefs.  The world is on fire.

But they stopped those tea partiers and cheap illegal labor and voters are flooding across our border.  Good job GOP!

This is what happens to a minority political party lacking in vision, moral clarity, and leadership: it becomes captive to its loudest and most powerful interest groups, and dissolves into warring camps. Sometimes, as with the Tea Party, those splinter groups reflect an honest yearning for a return to national responsibility, personal freedom and morality, but lack visionary leadership to help bring about their goals.   
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Of course this is not a normal presidency, because an abnormal, ignorant American public elected him. Fundamental transformation.

And no amount of politics can change it, because politics, at its heart, involves playing to what people want. Progressivism has hopelessly tainted what people want and has tilted the playing field in their favor for good. Look at Europe, where it first took root. Has it returned to conservatism yet?

Just an aside....who cares if, ".......Russia is flexing her bear claws"?  They will never go back to totalitarianism form of Communism.  That Soviet Union is gone forever.

Also, as an observer of events....it is much easier to be a 'hero' as a leader who grants more freedom and less control over its citizens...than what our esteemed Leader is currently doing/planning for America.
