Obama’s Pompous CircumstancePresidential
candidate Barack Obama has taken his pander machine on the road around
the world in an effort to demonstrate two points vital to the success of
his campaign for the office of Commander-in-Chief.
July 25, 2008
▪ That he is willing to
step into the hot zone and confront facts on the ground as defined by
military and security experts before setting his official international
security policy in stone.
▪ That despite a nearly
blank résumé, void of any military or security experience whatsoever,
executive or otherwise, he has what it takes to become the next
Commander-in-Chief of the last remaining super-power during a time
of war, great international turmoil and continued threat of death and
destruction on U.S. soil.
Watching what has
become ObamaTV, 24/7 alphabet network coverage of every Obama "er –
ah – uh – hm – uh – huh – er” uttered, it’s clear that the
mainstream American media is desperate to demonstrate Obama’s readiness
to be the big cheese by showing the fantastic rock-star welcome
he is receiving abroad.
To the average American
onlooker, the term "Obamessiah” looks more and more appropriate as the
news networks work around the clock to show how Europe and the Middle
East react to his arrival as if he were indeed the second coming… The
propaganda has boosted Obama to a 4 point lead over McCain this week.
But how real are those
rock-star images being beamed around the globe via satellite for
American voter consumption back home?
MSNBC interview with Chris Matthews, who was busy doing his usual
stumping for Obama, respected field reporter Andrea Mitchell reported
"Let me just say something about the 'message management'. He
[Obama] didn't have reporters with him, he didn't have a press pool,
he didn't do a press conference while he was on the ground in either
Afghanistan or Iraq. What you're seeing is not reporters brought in.
You're seeing selected pictures taken by the military, questions by the
military, and what some would call "fake interviews" 'cause
they're not interviews from a journalist. So, there's a real press issue
here. Politically it's smart as can be, but we have not seen a
presidential candidate do this in my recollection ever before."
ignored what Mitchell said and tried to return to stumping for Obama.
Matthews tried to get Mitchell to confirm his rock-star
interpretation of the Obama visit, but Mitchell again responded, "I
can't really say that. I just can't report on what was edited
out...that's my issue. We don't know what we are seeing."
Mitchell, who is by no
means a right-leaning reporter, is pointing out that everything
Americans are seeing beamed from abroad is manufactured for voter
consumption under the cover of a complete media blackout during
the Obama trip. They are "staged” photo ops…
In a personal letter
from an American soldier present during Obama’s visit to Bagram Air Base
in Afghanistan, Battle Captain Jeffrey S. Porter reports a very
different version of the Obama visit. I am including the entire text of
his letter, typos and all for authenticity…
As you know I am not
a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama
came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to 'The War
Zone'. I wanted to share with you what happened.
He got off the plane
and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the
Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram.
As the Soldiers
where lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say a word
as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished,
the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that
military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so
he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again
shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their
So really he was
just here to make a showing for the American's back home that he is
their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an
effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are
providing the freedom that they are providing for you.
I swear we got more
thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders
than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the
United States. I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be
our Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around
those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.
If this is blunt and
to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of
caliber of person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

Is Obama listening
to the experts on the ground concerning military and security strategies
in Afghanistan, Iraq or Israel?
Reporting from Iraq in
advance of the Obama visit, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell states
"U.S. Military Commanders Oppose Obama's Iraq Withdrawal Plan.” This
is not a new revelation. Military and foreign security experts have
repeatedly advised against set time-tables for withdraw that are based
on an arbitrary wish clock instead of events on the ground.
Good Morning America
covered the topic with a July 10, 2008 story titled "Obama's
Iraq Withdrawal Plan is Impossible.”
Obama was told the same
thing by military commanders during his visit to Iraq. Yet the story
beamed back home was how he had again ignored military command advice
and instead made an unofficial arbitrary agreement with the Iraqi
government concerning American troop withdraw over the coming months.
First, as only a
"candidate,” Obama has no authority to make any such agreement of
course, a fact often missing in the limited foresight of the egomaniacal
pompous nobody from Chicago. More importantly, his actions not only
undermined the policies of the sitting Commander-in-Chief, but the
military command on the ground in Iraq as well.
In short, Obama has no
authority to make any agreements at all on this trip. To the degree that
he pretends otherwise for benefit of staged campaign propaganda, he
undermines current official U.S. policy in that effort.
Twists of the Truth...
American news agencies
have reported that Israel was quite supportive of Obama’s security
commitment to their country. What the American media left out of the
report is that Israel stated that they are in no way interested in the
"change” Obama promises… They are happy to greet and deal with Obama,
should he become president, so long as he remains on course with the
existing Bush plan for the Middle East… Which Obama then committed to
do, in opposition to his promise of "change” to his constituents back
But did Israel believe
Obama? Israel’s private reaction is recorded in this NewsMax exclusive
hours after Obama’s visit...‘Big
Concern’ About Obama; Warns Iran of ‘Inevitable’ Attack
Of course world leaders
are giving Obama the obligatory statesmen-like welcome. But they are
also telling Obama that the "change” he has promised back home is NOT
acceptable to them… From military commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan to
leaders of Israel and European nations, the message to Obama is
unequivocally, NO CHANGE from the Bush plans…and we’ll get along
fine. But is that what the American press or Obama campaign is telling
the American voter?
Is Obama Listening?
American news reports
have made the Obama trip look like a whirlwind one-man tour to save the
world in a week, by a man they hope American voters will accept
as their new Messiah.
With the blind
propaganda support of the U.S. press, Obama is able to create the image
of a new leader welcomed by even the most disagreeable leaders around
the globe. However...
Keeping track of
▪ Obama told Israel he
stands firmly in defense of their country. But he also indicated to
Palestinians that he stands with their desire to force Israel to give up
part of their country. He told Israel he supported them, and
Palestinians that he also supports them…
▪ Military leaders in
Iraq and Afghanistan told Obama that any arbitrary withdrawal time frame
is counter-productive to their stated mission of achieving sustaining
peace in the region. But Obama told them that he knows better and is
committed to arbitrary withdrawal plans anyway.
▪ Israel told Obama
that they could work with him if elected. But only if he is committed to
continuing the existing Bush plan, which Obama has spoken against for
▪ Obama told the world
that he was committed to making certain Iran would never become a
nuclear power. Yet he has already committed to his voters back home that
he would not use military power to stop Iran from continuing down the
road of nuclear proliferation and there are no signs that Iran will stop
short of military action.
▪ Though Obama could
not have even visited Iraq safely before last years troop surge, he
continued to state that the troop surge was a failure, as he stood and
shot hoops for the camera on the ground which was secured by that surge.
McCain has had a
terrible week in that the only news coverage he has received since Obama
left town is that his trip to the gulf states was interrupted by weather
and that he might have to announce a VP running mate just to capture 5
seconds of news time on any of the 24/7 ObamaTV networks.
The Image is Created
According to recent Pew
Research polls, 60 percent or more of Europe and the Middle East support
Obama’s bid for the White House, as compared to less than 15% who
support McCain. Of course, third world dictators from Ahmadinejad in
Iran to Chavez in Venezuela support Obama and the reasons should be
obvious to all. But this is the basis upon which Americans should
support Obama as well? Is the international campaigning working for
It’s important to
recognize that the same number in these parts of the world, 60 percent,
the same 60 percent who prefer Obama over McCain, also believe that
America is too big, too strong and too rich – and that America must be
brought down to size and removed from its supreme status as the last
remaining super-power in the world. It is on the basis of this belief
that they support a candidate who at least in rhetoric, agrees with
Will America Elect
an Image or Vote on Reality?
Clearly, many Americans
prefer lies over truth, image over substance and rhetoric over reality.
As a result, no matter how ridiculous the Obama campaign becomes, some
40 percent of American voters are indeed foolish enough to fall for the
most fraudulent political campaign in modern history come November. It’s
as if Obama is running for International Secretary General or world
What about the other 60
percent of American voters who appear completely demoralized and divided
over a less that stellar alternative in John McCain?
In the end, it will be
a matter of sane priorities against insane fantasies. Here’s to focusing
the nation on sane priorities before they throw the nation off the
leftist cliff on the basis of their insane fantasies of a new Messiah
I have never seen a
more under-qualified but over-confident fraud in my entire life. Obama
and his puppet masters are counting on the ignorance of the American
voter and so are many of America’s enemies around the globe.
Berlin speech, Obama says "the world is keenly interested in the
U.S. election.” This is true and nobody on earth is more interested
in Obama’s campaign than terrorists hoping for a
"kindler-gentler” president elect...God help us if their useful American
idiots are now a voting majority!
