A President’s Folly

I took issue with some of the President’s remarks last night. Well first I will mark my support with his last phase,”Freedom is more powerful than Fear.” Channeling a little FDR on the eve of the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

My first question: Why was he not sitting behind his desk? Every President before him has shown their seriousness by sitting behind the Resolute Desk. Note: Resolute. 

Second Question: Why will he not call ISIS/ISIL for what it is? Radical Islamic Terrorism. We can all agree that this is a perversion of Islam that all decent Muslims reject. But we must call it for what it is. The time for political correctness ended a long time ago. And with the bloodshed in France and California, it’s past time to get serious about defeating ISIS/ISIL or as the President previously referred to it: the JV Team. 

Last question: Why must he politicize every death with Gun Control? Most gun violence is committed by those who have no criminal background—nothing a background check would’ve picked up. Instead, we must encourage every citizen to protect themselves, become educated on how to properly handle arms, how to prevent crimes, to inform the proper authorities if someone shows distressing mental issues or showing signs of radicalization. 

I want to add I agree with his remarks about Muslim-Americans. We are not at war with Islam, just as President Bush made clear days after the Attacks on September 11th, 2001. We are at war with Radical Islamic Jihadist, those who wish to kill nonbelievers. But we are not out to start targeting Muslims the way FDR and the Democrats dehumanized Asian-Americans after Pearl Harbor. Although we must not be afraid to speak out when we see any suspicious activity of any kind as the neighbor of the San Bernardino terrorist had failed to do. We must not be silent in the pursuit of keeping the public safe.  

We must reject this notion that the Middle East is to be a dumping ground for violence, that there is no hope for peace in the Middle East. There can be peace.  But it must be peace on our terms. Peace means every child, every girl, gets an education. Peace means Christians, Jews, and Muslims can worship in harmony. Peace means the People can choose the type of government they have. It will take a statesman of the highest degree to achieve this. 

We need another Eisenhower, another Kennedy, or another Reagan. Someone who will clearly identify the enemy and who will have a firm resolve to confront it head on. President Reagan did this, even when the media and democrats where aghast when he called Russia “the Evil Empire.” He understood how we must preserve freedom. At any cost, at any expense, and by any means. 

And as we remember Pearl Harbor, we must remember our resolve after that horrible attack. We must defeat this enemy that abhors everything we stand for. Now just as then, there are those who wish to take away the freedoms we know are given to us by our Creator. Yet when our security is at risk, we cannot jump to limit liberty or else the enemy has won. Those who wish to harm us would rather see us self-destruct rather than send their people to die, although they’ll do it without hesitation. 

The next President will be tasked with putting the nail in the coffin of ISIS/ISIL. We will not win this war with ISIS/ISIL if we do not declare it and treat it as a war. In the wake of Paris, the fear grew that it would come here. It’s here. It’s been here. The Next Preisdent must prepare for a fight that we cannot afford to lose.

 Because we will not survive this appeasement. Appeasement is not peace. Appeasement is a form of surrender and surrender is no form of peace.

Return of the USSR?

For these last few years America has had an odd relationship with Russia after the, then new, Obama Administration “reset US-Russia relations” and now in the ever escalating situation in Ukraine, Russia beginning to take startling military actions. This would be a surprise if a certain Republican Presidential Nominee, Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, hadn’t considered Russia to be a Geo-Political Foe.

What’s Russia’s interest in Ukraine?

Natural Gas and Military Bases.

What does Bique have to say?

I’ve got many concerns.
First of all, time and time again Russia has not shared the interest of the United States wether it be: giving NSA whistle blower, Andrew Snowden, asylum to denying their citizens free press and other rights.
So they don’t share our interests and this type of 21st century imperialism through obstruction of the airline travels as there are boots on the ground as the situation develops.
This has me wondering if the USSR might be re-surging.

Barack Obama’s Rose Garden Speech Analyzed

20130901-170104.jpg

Did you watch the President’s announcement?

He started out addressing the public’s shocking reaction of the Chemical weapons attack in Syria, as if somehow he forgot about the Americans killed in Benghazi…

Then he refers to the Secretary of State, John Kerry, laying out, what the Washington Post has called a “Forceful Case” that the Assad Regime is undeniably responsible for attacking its own people with Chemcal Weapons.

“After a decade of conflict, the American people are tired of war. Believe me, I am too. But fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility…. history would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye to a dictator’s wanton use of weapons of mass destruction against all warnings.”

~ Secretary of State, John Kerry

The President then goes on to mention “horrible images of the dead.”

I hate to be a brute, but does anyone remember Ambassador Stevens?

20130901-183821.jpg

Let me skip a few more insensitive comments to the meat and bones of his statements.

He then makes a somewhat strong statement, somewhat is the key word here..

“the United States Military should take action.”
President Obama

Not “the United States Military WILL take action.”
He gives us this wimpy “should”..
This is so indecisive.

Now here is where Rand Paul gets all jumpy to attack the President.

Mr. Paul clams the President wants to go to war.

No where in his speech does he declare war or does he mention sending troops, in fact… He specifically states he will NOT be sending troops into combat.

This doesn’t let the President off the hook though. Not one bit.

Over a year ago he said this

“We have been very clear to the (Bashar Assad) regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”

And to deter this kind of behavior we have ships armed with missiles ready to attack.

“We are prepared to strike, whenever we choose.”
~ Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to President Obama

So why didn’t we do it the moment we had that capacity?

The world needs to know when the President speaks on behalf of the People, he means business and he’s a man of his word.

The fact he’s waited so long shows how unimportant this is to him. And we wouldn’t be in this position if he hasn’t said the two magic words, “Red Line.”

But he did, and he must act upon his word or what does it mean?

Not only can we strike whenever we want, but apparently we can wait as long as we want too!

“our capacity to execute this mission is not time sensitive.”

Really? I’d argue otherwise…

Lets back up a little, shall we?

A leader is using chemical weapons on his citizens killing over 1,000 people and he has the capacity to do it again and somehow this isn’t time sensitive?

But you’re gonna love this

“I will seek authorization.. from congress.”

They don’t return from their vacation for a less than a week! He’s willing to wait this long to take action when he understands the severity of this situation?

Not only that but he wants them to debate and take a vote!

Did he forget he’s talking about congress? I think he did..

20130901-192653.jpg

I hate forcing hypotheticals on you (but I’m going to do it anyway)

Since we know the Syrian probably have their weapons on the move, away from the bases to secret locations, what if they fall into the wrong hands such as the Muslim Brotherhood or Al-Qaeda? This could seriously threaten our national security as the 12 anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks nears.

Now I understand he wants this decision to be one that is widely supported and that when we make decisions as a nation it makes our resolve stronger. But he doesn’t have to campaign anymore! He was re-elected! He knew when he was reelected he would be faced with tough decisions and he’d have to act. No one ever said it would be easy or popular. And people will always disagree with the President on both sides of the isle. Because since he has been democratically re-elected his decisions are a general reflection of the People’s will.

I’m not saying he shouldn’t have to go to congress. I’m just suggesting that it won’t make his case stronger by waiting a ridiculous amount of time to let congress battle it out.

Then he has the audacity to basically say “ehhh I don’t really need congresses’ approval at the moment, but you know if it makes everyone feel good and takes some heat off of me then it’s a good day in America.”

Ok here’s what he really said

“While I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization, I know that the country will be stronger … and our actions will be even more effective”

That’s NOT how you persuade 535 hardheaded politicians to agree with you.

Especially when many face reelection next year and they’ll have to answer to their constituents why they wanted to intervene in a foreign country’s war when we have:

– Massive Poverty
– Massive Government Dependency
– Failing Education
– Massive Debt
And a recession that shows few signs of ending.

He’s putting over 400 politicians in a very tight spot..

He then says that taking action on such a “Unspeakable Outrage” is “up for debate.”

I feel like he knows this could either lead to war or fail and he doesn’t want to go it alone. He needs to drag congress down with him if it back fires.

Because if he felt that this was so pressing to our interests and to the security of our allies, he would have struck the Syrian Regime in the dead of the night by surprise. He would have sent the message to all our enemies “Neither America or our allies will stand for such unethical behavior. We won’t tolerate it.”
As the old saying goes

“Drastic times call for drastic measures.”

And when the President says there are going to be serious consequences if you do not heed my warning and you defy me, then we have no choice but to give them hell.

I’m 6 minutes into his 10 minute speech and I can’t go on. Really, I think he’s said enough.

He’s not prepared to take the action necessary to fight tyrants who wish to harm people who wish to be free. He’s not willing to take these core American values to heart. He isn’t ready to lead the free world. He’s scared. He’s indecisive. He’s cowering from the course of action that needs to be taken.

And the world has taken that into account.

Did you know in Israel there are hundreds of people lined up to receive gas masks?

20130901-203923.jpg

They are literally preparing for the worst if America doesn’t pull through.

The President of the United States of America is a coward. Unwilling to act. Unwilling to do what is necessary. Unwilling to keep his word. He lacks the spine and the integrity.

And that’s the memo.

Why Syria Matters

As of August 31st, 2013 President Obama wants to take action in Syria.

Why?

They crossed the redline.

What’s this red line?

The use of chemical weapons.

What started this Syrian Civil War?

BBC reports:

The trouble began in 2011 in the Syrian city of Deraa.

Locals took to the streets to protest after 15 schoolchildren had been arrested – and reportedly tortured – for writing anti-government graffiti on a wall.

The protests were peaceful to begin with, calling for the kids’ release, democracy and greater freedom for people in the country.

The government responded angrily, and on 18 March, the army opened fire on protesters, killing four people.

The following day, they shot at mourners at the victims’ funerals, killing another person.

People were shocked and angry at what had happened and soon the unrest had spread to other parts of the country.

Who’s fighting?
Officially:
The Major players in the Opposition as follows
Free Syrian Army
Syrian Islamic Liberation Front (aka the Muslim Brotherhood)

But as you go in depth it doesn’t look to promising..

What’s America’s interest in Syria?
The Deccan Herald reports:

“Still, other analysts point to a positive effect of the unrest: it could deprive Iran of a reliable ally in extending its influence over Lebanon, Hezbollah and the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. That is not a small thing, they said, given that Iran is likely to benefit from the fall of Mubarak in Egypt, the upheaval in Bahrain, and the resulting chill between the United States and Saudi Arabia. “There’s much more upside than downside for the US,” said Martin S Indyk, the vice president for foreign policy at the Brookings Institution. “We have an interest in counterbalancing the advantages Iran has gained in the rest of the region. That makes it an unusual confluence of our values and interests.””

Down Side?
Russia has a been a big critic on the President, with our strained relationship with the former Communist nation where things haven’t changed that much.
Not to mention China and Iran on the side of the Syrian Government.

Then lets say Assad steps down. Who takes over? Most likely the Muslim Brotherhood. And didn’t that go swimmingly in Egypt?

What if our Congress says “No Mr. President, we aren’t risking war, we learned our lesson.”

Lets not forget the elephant in the room, our ally Israel

They’re frightened.. New reports show them passing out gas masks. And allies are slowly pulling away. Will they be left on their own?

What’s the hold back?
The British Parliament voted against taking action in Syria 272-285.

“It is clear to me the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action,” Prime Minister David Cameron says.

France is ready to take action but now they are waiting for America to call the shots.

What do two Senators Say at home?

Washington Post reports

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged President Obama late Thursday against getting involved militarily in Syria, suggesting that it would be a “big mistake.”
“There are potential repercussions,” Paul said on Fox News Channel. “If he launches this little piddly attack with a few cruise missiles, it won’t stop chemical weapons, but it may well insight a gas attack on Israelis. I think it’s a big mistake.”

Paul said that if military action is undertaken, it should only happen after Congress signs off.
“… We are not excited to get involved in a new war right now,” he said. “And so, I would do everything I can to stop the president. We should not engage in a war, and we certainly shouldn’t engage in it in an unconstitutional fashion.”

Fox News:

“The United States Armed Forces doesn’t exist to be a policeman for the world and I certainly hope the reaction isn’t lobbing some cruise missiles in to disagree with Assad’s murderous actions,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said on Fox News.

What’s Bique got to say?

I admire the President wanting to get congresses approval but he’s got to be prepared for this to fail in the Congress. And then what?

But who are we to standby and allow this to happen to a people who wish to be free. Us too, a long ago the British were shooting and silencing those who crave freedom (Boston Massacre for you American History People)?

Many say America shouldn’t be the “Police Man of the World.”

I ask then who will stand up for Liberty? The UN can’t because of Russia and China. They don’t share our ideas and interests. And Britain has no intentions of stepping up to the plate.

We must Act Now.
The Lives of innocent people and our credibility depend on it.

A Lost Dream?

On August 28th, it is the 50th Anniversary of MLK Jr’s “I have a Dream” Speech. This is such a momentous occasion. I’d say its almost as famous and as well known as Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

What’s the Dream?

Lets refresh ourselves with the enlightening words of Dr. King.

“I have a dream that little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

He dreamed that there would be an equal playing field for all people of color.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.”

Not that we’d have a “War on Poverty” that would amount in Billions in Government Aid but give African Americans the opportunities to be prosperous. What we should seek is an equality in opportunity, NOT in result. It’s simply not how liberty works.

Define these “Opprotunites”

Education.

Remember George Wallace?

“Segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever!”
~George Wallace

During this time schools where segregated by race. And we know the “Black or Colored” Schools were not equal next to their racial counterparts.

The comparative quality of education among rich and poor districts is still often the subject of dispute. While middle class African-American children have made good progress; poor minorities have struggled. With school systems based on property taxes, there are wide disparities in funding between wealthy suburbs or districts, and often poor, inner-city areas or small towns. “De facto segregation” has been difficult to overcome as residential neighborhoods have remained more segregated than workplaces or public facilities.

Now in this age of technology, every American, white or black, can obtain great amounts of knowledge. There is a world of knowledge in the palm of your hands. Never more in our country’s history has there been such an equal playing field of knowledge to build on and get ahead.

So what’s the hold up.

Our politically correct society, we have held back the wheels of progress by not looking any further than our brothers’ skin color… Depending which side of the political spectrum you’re on.

The Content of Character?

Who’s got more character?

Jay-Z?

“Uh, yo don’t get mad at me
I don’t love ’em I f**k ’em
I don’t chase ’em I duck ’em
I replace ’em with another one
You had to see she keep calling me BIG
And my name is Jay-Z
She be all on my d**k
Gradually I’m taking over your b***h
Coming over your s**t”
– Song “Is that yo b***h?

Or Congressman Tim Scott?

“I just dove into the Scriptures and started memorizing different scriptures and started becoming as much as possible a part of the scripture. I wanted it to be grafted into my heart.”

President Obama “weighs in”

“Every time I talk to Jay-Z, who is a brilliant talent and a good guy, I enjoy how he thinks,”
says Obama
Rolling Stones 2008

“Nuff Said”

We have a long way to go for Dr. King’s Dream to become a reality.
But it’s gotta start in our hearts. We’ve got to forgive the past and look forward to a bright future full of opportunities and prosperity, but were holding ourselves back when we discuss race relations in America like Birmingham happened yesterday. It starts today. Let it begin with you and me.

Racial Bias in America

Not too long ago, the whole world stopped to listen to the Martin-Zimmerman Case. The “African American Community” took to the streets, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were outraged. The President of the United States even threw in his two cents

“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” Obama told White House reporters in a surprise appearance at the daily briefing.

He even said this!

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said

On August 22, as the Huffington Post reports

A WWII veteran who fought at the Battle of Okinawa, where he took a bullet to the leg and continued fighting, was beaten to death by two teens Wednesday night.

He happened to have beaten to death by two African Americans.

Why is there no Outrage?

Where is the President?

Where’s Jesse Jackson?

Where’s Al Sharpton?

Nowhere to be found.

BUT WAIT! There’s More!

Fox News Reported:

Officials say 22-year-old Christopher Lane, who was visiting the U.S. on a baseball scholarship at East Central University, was jogging along a road in Duncan, Okla., after visiting his girlfriend on Friday when he was shot in the back.

Who are the suspects?

Two African Americans and a Caucasian.

But Why?

“For the Fun of it.”

WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE?

Well….
We have this..

20130825-094500.jpg

“It’s frowned upon.”

THAT’S IT.

No rallies, nothing.

The hypocrisy is intense.

What are you getting at Bique?

The President wants a “National Conversation” on race relations.

Lets Have One.

But he’s got to condemn any violence that’s not in selfdefense. He’s got to promote active parenting. He’s got to bind the nations wounds and let go of our nation’s racial past and look forward (his 2012 campaign slogan) to a brighter and more prosperous future where we all play our part.

We’re practically brothers and sisters. Us in America. We grow up together and experience similar things. And to be degraded to second grade fighting and immaturity is ridiculous. We are supposed to be “One Nation”, I mean we are the United States. Not the Confederate States or the Segregated States or anything else. We lose respect in around the World when we are seen going at odds with each other. What makes us the Land of the Free when our Government tries to dictate certain religious ceremonies and having to argue for the life of an unborn child? What makes us the home of the Brave when thugs kill decorated soldiers, who fought for their freedoms and prosperity, in cold blood? What type of society are we when we can’t see our brothers character past the color of his skin?

Lets have a National Conversation. But lets have an intelligent and unbiased one as well. Lets put our differences and our grievances aside for the better, the prosperity, the unity and moreover, the future of this great nation.
