Skip to comments.The First Anti-American President

Barack Obama will no doubt be chronicled, among other things, as the first anti-American president. No wonder; hes the product of an educational system that has become increasingly radical and anti-American with each passing decade, and his mother was a stereotypical leftist anthropologist with a passion for the Third World.
The pattern is unmistakable. As Luis Fleischman notes, Obama wanted to make deals with our enemies, Iran being the most dramatic example. But just look at Latin America:
The Obama Administration tried to avoid confrontations with anyone it wanted to make a historic deal with. Most of these historic deals were intended to be made with enemies, as Obama desperately sought an agreement not only with Iran, but also with Cuba and reconciliation with Venezuela.
Thus, Obama failed to insist on the extradition of Venezuelan military and drug trafficker Hugo Carvajal from Aruba and the Syrian-born Venezuelan drug lord Walid Makled from Colombia. Carvajal was the chief of Venezuelan military intelligence and Makled is one of the most notorious drug traffickers in the Western Hemisphere. Makled himself disclosed his own cooperation with scores of the highest officials within Chavezs government -- including Carvajal himself, with the chiefs of the Venezuelan army and navy, as well as with dozens of Venezuelan generals.
The Obama people did not want to know the details of Venezuelas collusion with the drug Mafiosi. If you have followed the story of the obstruction of the DEA investigation of Hezbollah, you will recognize the pattern. Indeed, it is part of the story.
It is also part of a bigger story: What is Trump going to do about Iran? The rhetoric on Iran is great. Inspirational, even. But as even Mad Dog" Mattis says, theres, well, more rhetoric, along with some sanctions:
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says Washington will deal with Iran through a "diplomatically-led effort," a day after a top U.S. diplomat said Tehran was supplying weapons to the Huthi rebels in Yemen.
So we still dont have an Iran policy worthy of the name, despite the welcome clarity the Trump people have brought to the subject. Everywhere you find turmoil, Mattis said following our UN Ambassador Nikki Haleys expose of Irans role in Yemen, you find Irans hand in it.
But then the secretary of Defense went on to embrace consciousness-raising.
Consciousness has long been suitably raised. There is no confusion about the nature of the Iranian regime or its intent to develop nuclear attack weapons or its savage repression of seventy-plus million people who would undoubtedly enter the ranks of the West if they could. But if we do not directly challenge the regime, no one else is going to do it.
Donald Trump is certainly the opposite of an anti-American president, and he has no affection for our enemies. He has enabled the Ukrainians to fight, perhaps effectively, against the Russians. So why cant he enable the Iranians to fight against the ayatollahs?
In the Ukrainian case were talking about military weapons; in the Iranian conflict the weapons are political. If the Iranians rose up against the regime when Obama entered the White House, you can be sure they are at least equally motivated to do it with Trump in office. There are many protests in Iran today, and the Khamenei/Rouhani regime has responded by executing half as many Iranians as in the past. We should relentlessly expose this mass murder, and we should publicize the ongoing protests.
The target audience for such exposes is the great mass of the population. Paradoxically, Iranians are better informed about events in Jerusalem and Washington than in Iranian Kurdistan, the southern oil regions, and cities like Mashad and Qom.
All Iranians need this information, which shows them that they are not alone. The technology for such a campaign exists. It is the same as it was when we deployed it against the Soviet Union with such powerful consequences: our broadcasting network, starting with the Voice of America. Today, Farsi-language VOA is often a vehicle for anti-American polemics, since personnel is virtually unchanged from the Obama years. We need a thorough housecleaning, but there are few signs that our national security team understands its urgency.
History will not be kind to the fraud known as “Obama”.
Mr. Ledeen used to post here back in the day.
We’ve never had an unmasked Enemy in Chief before. We’ve had pretenders to that throne - FDR and LBJ - but never a bald-faced hater of America who promised to “fundamentally change” America.
Anti-American is the best description of Obama.
That is his legacy
He did? I must admit his name looked familiar.
“History will not be kind to the fraud known as Obama.”
I don’t really think he cares. He was not a successful president doubling our debt, raising unemployment, destroying our relations with many of our allies, empowering our enemies, and trying to do damage to a system of government and country that has been the most successful in the history of man and the one that hundreds of thousands of people are trying to get to to include those that will gamble their lives doing it on cardboard boats in open ocean.
And it never seems to stop even after he’s gone.
Most radical anti-American President for sure but there have been others. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Lyndon Johnson exhibited those traits as well. And then there’s Woodrow Wilson...
“Weve never had an unmasked Enemy in Chief before.”
And his “All for a damn flag” wife.
He sure did as Mledeen. Screen name is still active.
“Anti-American is the best description of Obama.”
Unfortunately it is also the best description of half of American voters.
Here's the simpler, correct explanation. Obama is an illegal alien whose only allegiance is to Islam. His purpose was to weaken America. That he managed to usurp the Presidency for 8 years exceeded his handlers' wildest expectations.
Barack Obama should never have been allowed to be sworn in.
(Both times repeated in secret)
He is not a natural born citizen.
Ignoring the Constitution will have serious long term consequences.
BOTH parties colluded to violate the Constitution.
What do you expect when someone has a Muslim name like him? Can’t believe how dumb the voters are after people with the same names attacked the US on 9/11. HE doesn’t think like an American.
"Our whole duty, for the present, at any rate, is summed up in the motto: AMERICA FIRST." Woodrow Wilson
"...FDR and LBJ..."
Barry was a “wrecker”.
