Paul Rahe: Obama's Agenda

From Powerline:

Hillsdale College Professor Paul Rahe writes:

Charles Krauthammer has an article in the forthcoming Weekly Standard that, to their great credit, the editors of that journal have now made available online here. Although it only says what should be obvious, Krauthammer's article is nonetheless a piece that should be read in its entirety by every American.

Krauthammer's point is simple and unassailable. There is, he argues, an intimate connection between the foreign policy being pursued by the Obama administration and its domestic policy. The work undertaken in the domestic sphere by what I have called "Obama's wrecking crew" will, he points out, put a stop to the pattern of dynamic economic growth that made it possible for the United States to defeat Japan, contribute decisively to the defeat of Nazi Germany, contain communism, and ultimately defeat and prepare the way for the dismemberment of the Soviet Union.

It will produce economic stagnation of the sort that the Europeans have suffered from for decades, and it will eventuate in a collapse of the American dollar

This, as Krauthammer shows, Obama and his minions understand, and this they want -- the elimination of the foundations for American hegemony and the crippling of this country. They regard the role that we have thus far played in the world as shameful; they are intent on dismembering the alliances that gave us our heft in the world; and they are not only appeasing our sworn enemies but openly, publicly embracing them and their agenda.

This explains the praise showered on President Obama by Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chavez, and Fidel Castro. This is the meaning of our attempt to install a dictator in the Honduras on the model of Castro and Chavez; it is the meaning of our recent betrayal of Poland -- on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of that country.

It explains why Obama initially responded to the open theft of an election in Iran by professing his confidence in the Iranian government and why the State Department recently cut off funds for the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center in New Haven, Connecticut, which was collecting information on the imprisonment, torture, and murder of those in Iran who protested against the theft of that election (for the details see this post).

It explains the deliberate insults offered Gordon Brown of Great Britain and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, which I catalogued here and here. And, of course, this explains the speeches given abroad again and again by President Obama, apologizing for American behavior in the past. and signaling a radical shift in American policy.

It is for this change of posture that our President has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. And if you think that the United States is the principal source of evil in the world, you should vigorously applaud. My bet is that in his acceptance speech Obama will confirm Charles Krauthammer's worst fears and my own.


To the transnationalists (a/k/a the "tranzis"), I simply say:

Let's rock.

Not that I agree with Krauthammer all the time, but it is refreshing that this has finally gone mainstream, after crying in the wilderness far too long.

It is becomming obvious if you follow the logic;

Leftist=Progressive=Democrat=Big central government+Loss of individuality=Communism

Conservative=Individual liberty+Freedom+RESPONSABILITY=American

you can't be an American and believe in a totally controlling Central Government, so it boils down to either you are an American or a Communist. To be an American you have to believe in American Ideals and principles. This is not open for changing the definitions to be an American while un-American in principle.
Which one are you?

President Obama has just been named the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV!

And in an unrelated late-breaking story, Obama has just replaced Mark Martin as the points leader in the 2009 Nascar Sprint Cup Race-for-the-Chase series, and named Toyota Tundra BASS Angler of the year for 2010 and 2011. Kevin VanDam, perenniel BASS elite series favorite, said it's only fair that Obama be given the award since his duties give him limited time on the water and place him at a decided disadvantage. "Besides", opined VanDam, "the poor guy doesn't even own a boat!"

Martin was upbeat in an interview today. "We worked hard and raced hard this season, and this was probably my best shot at winning the Championship that has eluded me. But all that pales in comparison* to the goodwill and prospects for improving the global image of Nascar."

Pit crews were heard chanting 'yes we can' while the Presidential limousine was in the garage area being fitted with special tires for this weeks race. Bill Ayres, who will take the wheel while Obama is flying around the world collecting his various awards this month, has been exempted from this weeks qualifying. When questioned, Ayres told Daryl Waltrip "I wrote his books, I guess I can drive his G** D****d Car!"

Rumor has it that Waltrip won't be permitted to shout "Boogitty Boogitty, Boogitty" this week because of the obvious racial overtones, and the Air Force fighter jet fly-over will be replaced by a VW bus circling the track so as not to appear overly agressive.

The devisive, in-your-face National Anthem will be replaced with the New Christy Minstrels' rendition of "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing."

(with the urging of civil rights activists, the group will change it's name to the New Christy Social Justice Singers.)

*Allow me to apologize for the " pales in comparison" remark. That was, well, uh, insensitive.

Silk Plants, Etc- That's some funny stuff. Maybe Sandy Kofax should give up his Hall of Fame slot for a more deserving candidate.
