With Obama’s final (YeHAW) SOTU Address coming up next Tuesday, I am sure he and his writers are going through ALL the major “achievements” Obama’s policies have brought this year.
Take for instance Iran. Right now, Iran and our ally (?), Saudi Arabia, are now embroiled. Needless to say, the Obama White House has been a bit silent over the current bombing going on by both sides. Iran, as you may know, took offense at Saudi Arabia beheading one of their clerics, so they bombed the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran. Well, Saudi Arabia wasn’t going to take THAT lying down, so not only did they cut ties of a diplomatic variety with Iran, THEY* just bombed the Iranian Embassy in Yemen. Take THAT, Iran! (* That should read they ALLEGEDLY bombed the Iranian Embassy. A report tonigh on “Special Report” noted that there did not seem to be any visual damage to the embassy. Oh, and guess wit whom most of the countries in the region are aligning themselves? It ain’t Iran, I can tell you.)
And the White House? Well, that response is basically crickets. And you know why. Because of the ridiculous, idiotic, disastrous, giveaway to Iran by the Obama White House and the Kerry State Department.
Which makes THIS little video out of Iran even more indicative of how very problematic this whole deal with Iran is:
Uh, yeah. What could POSSIBLY go wrong with all of those missiles on which they have their hands, huh? Yep – that’s going into the SOTU – not.
And how about all of those Syrian refugees Obama and Democrats have been trying to guilt-trip us into taking after Obama’s disastrous policies with Syria? Perhaps Obama will borrow from his buddy, Angela Merkel, who made an impassioned speech on New Year’s about the need for compassion for these Syrian refugees and to embrace them. From the Daily Mail:
The country’s leader used her New Year address to urge citizens not to have ‘coldness in their hearts’ but to embrace the 1.1million newcomers.
Mrs Merkel has been blamed for fuelling the European migrant crisis by promising to welcome those who make it to Germany.
She was initially praised by Germans for her decision to allow many of those escaping war and poverty to stay. But with the numbers of migrants from the Middle East and Africa reaching more than a million, doubts have grown and her popularity has suffered. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
I can see Obama parroting the “opportunity” phrasing of Merkel about these refugees who have poured into Germany. No doubt, his ego and his cultish followers would never consider that his popularity could be damaged by such a plea based on emotionalism, or by his wanting to throw open wide the doors to these people who cannot possibly be vetted no matter what the Administration says.
And I am not sure it would matter if they WERE vetted. Why? Well, check out this little testimony following the events of New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany (it has English subtitles):
Yeah. That is what is going on in Germany now with the influx of Syrian (and alleged Syrian) refugees as the EU has loosened its borders. Hell, even with THIS, Merkel thinks the borders should stay open. No, seriously – she does.
And to these attacks, check out what Dana Loesch and Megyn Kelly have to say about the whole event, including the unbelievably assholic comments by the Mayor of Cologne. You won’t believe what SHE had to say. To the video:
Yes, Merkel and Obama are two peas in a pod. I can just see Obama praising Merkel and using her open door policy for these refugees as an arm-twister for us in his SOTU, can’t you?
Oh, WAIT! I almost forgot with all that is going on about the two Gitmo detainees the President has had released this week. I have no doubt THIS will make it into his SOTU, how he is fulfilling his campaign promise no matter HOW dangerous these detainees are to our national security. From Fox News:
The Pentagon on Wednesday announced that two Guantanamo Bay inmates with Al Qaeda ties are being sent to Ghana, the first in a wave of 17 detainees expected to be transferred from the prison camp.
Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby will be transferred from Guantanamo to the custody of the government of Ghana.
Bin Atef is an admitted member of the Taliban and fought for Usama bin Laden, while Al-Dhuby trained with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan.
The two inmates are the first of a group of 17 detainees expected to be transferred out of Guantanamo Bay that includes “multiple bad guys” and “Al Qaeda followers,” a source who has reviewed the list told Fox News.
With the announcement of the transfer, 105 detainees remain there.
Both detainees spent close to 14 years at Guantanamo
The Pentagon had earlier determined that bin Atef was a high risk to the U.S. and to American interests, while Al-Dhuby posed a medium risk. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Oh, awesome. And while I am speaking of terrorists, Megyn Kelly mentioned the “University of Jihad” in Syria on her program last night. Oh, yes – they have themselves a school to teach the finer points of waging jihad (h/t Megyn Kelly show):
Oh my heavens. This is just astonishing. Just astonishing. Wow. Well, I am sure THAT is not making Obama’s SOTU address, nor his blowing off dealing with Assad, something the Administration claims will come to a head in – wait for it – 2017. That would be MARCH of 2017, to be specific.
So, yeah – I have no doubt Obama will leave out what is going on in Syria, what is going on with Syrian refugees, and how the Middle East is imploding under his watch. One thing I am sure he will have IN his speech, though, is attacking Republicans, something he has made a regular staple of all of his talks, including his Gun Control Show the other day.
There are so many other things going on this week that I have no doubt will not make the final Obama SOTU, but which should be. This is an Open Thread, so feel free to add some of your own!
