WikiLeaks confirms what everyone has thought

North Korea, currently embroiled in a knife’s edge confrontation with South Korea and the U.S., was able to smuggle 19 advanced, Russian-designed missiles, capable of delivering nuclear payloads, to Iran, according to a Feb. 24, 2010, cable detailing a meeting between Russian officials and a State Department nonproliferation expert. The shipment of some R-27 components was widely known in intelligence circles, but the WikiLeaks disclosures represent the first confirmation that Iran now possess complete missile systems.

Does this surprise anyone? Does it shock us that Iran is now capable of hitting Europe with missiles? It doesn’t surprise me. Is anyone surprised that Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, as well as Israel, has been begging us to take out Iran’s nuclear capabilities?
None of this stuff is earthshaking news. I am surprised that Silvio Berlusconi is palling around with Putin and I have to wonder what the pay-off for them both might be. Members of the EU should be wondering that, too.

NK the world’s beligerent teenager

Earlier this month, during a speech to U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, Obama said: “Pyongyang should not be mistaken: The United States will never waver in our commitment to the security of the Republic of Korea. We will not waver.”

If this were true, we would have wiped out the NK navy back in March when they sunk a SK ship. Instead, we did nothing. We wavered in March and we continue to waver in our defense of an ally. This presidents strategy is to ignore the “teenage misbehavings” of a rogue nation. Obama is just not getting it and of course, has yet to raise a teenager so he has no clue.

This is one dangerous teenager.

Will we ever know who this guy is?

I admit that I’m dumbfounded by this president. And I’m asking the same question I asked over a year ago, Who is this man?

On one hand, I think that Obama has to be the most naive person to ever sit in the oval office. Just look at his record with rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. I think that Obama really thought that if he could just talk to these evil men, he could charm them into seeing things his way. Just this morning, North Korean put it’s soldiers on war alert. If the North invades the South, how will we react? Or will we?

How out of touch with the American people do you need to be to set up a flag.gov site for neighbors to spy on each other and report to big brother? Did he really believe that this would fly (pardon the flag flying pun) with what we, as Americans, believe is fair and just?

On the other hand, he seems to be completely overwhelmed by the office he holds. A look at his response to the catastrophic oil spill is a good example. It has him paralyzed into inaction. His regime seems to be confused and befuddled into inactivity and forcing the governors of those states impacted, to take action alone.  But to be fair, what was his first act when he finally did do something? He sent lawyers to the gulf.

He totally ignored Nashville and it’s horrific flooding. Those citizens must feel real warm and fuzzy about him now.

And on the third hand (if I had one), he shows so much callousness and lack of class that it’s almost unbelievable. Where will he be on Memorial day? Not at Arlington. He’ll be throwing a party for Paul McCartney.  Has anyone forgotten how he treated Benjamin Netanyahu? Or the Dalai Lama? Compare that to how he treated the Mexican president last week with a state dinner.

His regime members okayed a fly over of Manhattan that terrified New Yorkers last year. While unemployment hovered near 10%, he took his wife out for dinner and a Broadway show, spending millions of dollars and disrupting the city. He spent more bundles on his family’s summer vacation at Martha’s Vineyard and a Christmas trip to Hawaii. (Let’s not forget that was at the same time as the Christmas panty bomber event, too.)  He can’t be bothered to take his children to church (because after all, he’s not a Christian) but he makes a show of his golf game every Sunday.

It’s been 10 months – TEN – since his last press conference. What does that say about him? Not only does he not respect the press that is so enamored with him but he’s afraid to speak off the cuff, sans a teleprompter for fear he might say something idiotic again, (rememeber “the cops “acted stupidly?”) Oh, he campaigns all the time, he’s speechifying constantly but never without a script, never without his teleprompter. Is it any surprise that his last press conference was the one that prompted a beer summit in the Rose Garden?

I just don’t know who this president is. I don’t think there was ever a question, whether you like George Bush or not, who he was and what he stood for. But with Obama, we were sold a bill of goods during the campaign that he was the smartest man to ever run and then win the White House. If hes’ so smart, how can he keep doing such stupid and naive things? What does that say about the intelligence of his handlers?

For me, 2012 will not come soon enough. The one thing I know for sure about this man is that has got to go. He has to be sent back to his bastion of corruption in Chicago so that we can repair the damage he’s done.

Here it comes again – another EMERGENCY! But what about the oil spill?

The head master (Arne Duncan) wants $23billion in emergency funding for teachers. This is an emergency and don’t you be forgetting that. Everything, but the gulf oil spill, is an emergency to this goverment. But Congressman McCotter puts it in stark perspective for us:

“Fundamentally, what you’re seeing is the failure of the stimulus,” Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), chairman of the Republican House Policy Committee, told Fox News.  “What we’re looking at here in Michigan is 14 percent unemployment; nationally, we’re looking at 9.9 percent.  We’ve seen a spike in jobless claims — all of which was supposed to have been prevented by the trillion dollars this administration already spent to ‘create or save’ jobs.

“When you look at the overall economy, that is really what undergirds the financing of education in the United States, both at the local level and at the state level.  So as Washington continues to try to go toward emergency measures, three things become patently obvious: One, the stimulus has failed.  Two, they’re delaying the real necessary restructuring of government that is required to have a sustainable tax base that is growing, for educators to be employed.  And third,” McCotter added with a flash of deadpan humor, “given the Democrats’ record number of deficits, debt and spending, there does auger an argument for more math teachers.”

This government has no idea what an emergency is. We have people losing their livelihoods, daily on the gulf due to the inability of BP to contain this catastrophe and Obama is taking a hands off approach. There’s a REAL emergency!  North Korea has attacked South Korea and we “are working to avoid an escalation” in the region. There’s a REAL emergency!

I believe that Obama really thought that all he had to do as president was TALK to people or throw money at them and they would change their ways. If he could just sit down and reason with these dictators (and he should know how since he envisions himself as one) he could make them want to work with us.

I’ve got a news flash for you – THEY DON’T LIKE US. And they never will.

And throwing more money at education and the teachers union, will not solve that “emergency” either.

Being the leader of the so-called “free-world” isn’t as easy as you thought, is it, Mr. President? You big marxist dummy!
