Rush: Obama Thinks People 'Got Screwed' When U.S. Founded

Rush: Obama thinks people 'got screwed' when U.S. founded

'Everything was peachy keen in America until those racist Europeans showed up'


Rush Limbaugh says President Obama holds the attitude that the original residents of America "got screwed" when the United States was officially founded.

The allegation came during the top-rated host's program today, as he analyzed Obama's speech last Wednesday at the Congressional Hispanic Congress.

The key section that has become controversial has Obama discussing the days before the American Revolution, which can be viewed at the 21:36 mark on this YouTube video:

Obama stated:

Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples: to British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican – (applause) – to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We didn't always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together – what made us all Americans – was not a matter of blood, it wasn't a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The actual quotation from the Declaration of Independence is:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

"He leaves out 'Creator,'" Limbaugh said. "It was a speech that was on the teleprompter. Either it was on the prompter and he omitted it, didn't say it, or it was not on the prompter. Regardless, it was a purposeful omission."

He continued: "This is the thing that's tough for people to get their arms around. They've elected somebody who actually has a grudge against the country as founded. Anytime that I have evidence that concurs with my no-question-about-it-correct opinion, I'm gonna use it. So, eliminate 'Creator,' eliminate God when quoting [the Declaration], and then make the statement, 'Before America came around, boy, look at all these wonderful people who were here who got screwed when America was founded.'"

Limbaugh gave his personal translation of Obama's comments about America before the nation's establishment, saying,

"We used to share it, everything was copacetic, everything was fine and dandy and then the white European settlers arrived and hello environmentalist – this is right out of the multicultural curricula. The white Europeans arrived, we got syphilis; we got horses; we got environmental destruction; we got racism; we got sexism; we got homophobia. Prior to all those people showing up, this was a dreamland."

He attributed Obama's belief system to Black Liberation Theology, which he absorbed from his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

"In Black Liberation Theology, which is the teaching of Rev. Wright," said Limbaugh, "the genocide of the American Indian is a major tenet. Wright preached it constantly, the genocide of the American Indian and Obama heard it. It's a huge, huge deal. And people who speak this way are really just saying everything was peachy keen in North America until those racist Europeans showed up and started oppressing everybody. That's what he believes."

Limbaugh then provided what he called "the money quote" from the book "A Black Theology of Liberation" by James Cone, the mentor to Rev. Wright:

"The extermination of Amer-Indians (American Indians), the persecution of Jews, the oppression of Mexican-Americans and every other conceivable inhumanity done in the name of God and country, these brutalities can be analyzed in terms of the white American inability to recognize humanity in persons of color."
"This is who animates and informs Rev. Wright who then goes to the pulpit and preaches sermons based on this stuff," Limbaugh explained. "Two and two equals four."
Referring to Obama, Limbaugh said, "Understanding who this guy is, folks, is crucial."

Wild Thing's comment...........

The other day I posted about how he left out about " Creator ". in his speech. But there was more to what he said and this is part of it. The fact that he lies about our history or is he that stupid. He has to apologize on everything, every single thing about America. Not only is this jackass not fit to be President he isn’t fit to be a citizen. He’s a disgusting air sucking piece of flesh.

La Raza talking points are one thing, actual history is something else.

Maybe he is referring to Mexican restaurants, which were here long before Taco Bell.

You know the way he keeps messing up with the history of the USA, ( remember the other things he has said too in the past). Obama doesn’t know anything about American history!

I agree and I am so angry at those who voted for this jerk obama. I hold everyone of them accountable for the misery, destruction etc. obama has brought upon our country.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Disgrace To America Obama Says "Whether We Like It or Not, We Remain a Dominant Military Superpower"

Obama yesterday at a news conference closing his "Nuclear Security Summit"


Wild Thing's comment........

“Whether we like it or not”

We like it. He doesn't. It's one more thing of America he would like to bring down. I’m so sick of this pathetic man-wannabe. It is in the "vital national interests" of the United States to REMAIN a "dominant military superpower, not only for us, but for the good of the world. Can you imagine how our troops feel when they hear what this POS says like this,

Hmm sounds like the Marxist In Chief had a bit of a slip of the tongue there didn’t he..that pretty much sums up what he thinks of the United States.. Implicit in obama's statement is that “we” don’t want to be a dominant military power. An interesting and dangerous perspective from the Foreigner in Chief.

I could not even begin to adequately describe the full depth and breadth of sheer contempt I hold for this jackass.

Yesterday Obama was also asked about China and he said his administration and China have good relations.
what about America and China. It’s always about him .

Obama: "We're still working on our democracy"

Obama said Sunday that the United States is still "working on" democracy and a top aide said he has taken "historic steps" to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.

Foreign Policy

Obama said Sunday that the United States is still “working on” democracy and a top aide said he has taken “historic steps” to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.

The remarks came as Obama met with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev — one of the U.S. president’s many meetings with world leaders ahead of this week’s nuclear summit.

Kazakhstan, which has been touting its record on combating nuclear proliferation, is a key player in the NATO supply network to Afghanistan and currently heads the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Some observers see a conflict between Kazakhstan’s chairmanship of the 56-nation OSCE, which plays an important role in monitoring elections in emerging democracies, and its own widely criticized human rights record.

But if the Obama administration saw any disconnect, it kept its criticism to itself.

“In connection with the OSCE, the presidents had a very lengthy discussion of issues of democracy and human rights,” NSC senior director Mike McFaul said on a conference call with reporters Sunday. “Both presidents agreed that you don’t ever reach democracy; you always have to work at it. And in particular, President Obama reminded his Kazakh counterpart that we, too, are working to improve our democracy.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Jonathan Weisman asked McFaul to clarify.

“You seemed to be suggesting there was some equivalence between their issues of democracy and the United States’ issues, when you said that President Obama assured him that we, too, are working on our democracy,” Weisman said. “Is there equivalence between the problems that President Nazarbayev is confronting and the state of democracy in the United States?”
“Absolutely not … There was no equivalence meant whatsoever,” McFaul said. “[Obama's] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States.”


Wild Thing's comment........

We are NOT a democracy,...WE THE PEOPLE are a REPUBLIC!

The words of America's most destructive enemy ...the "progressive." Barack Obama is a "transnational progressive," along with George Soros and a slew of others. They intend to "disrupt and destroy" America's authentic popular sovereignty, national sovereignty, and Constitutional rule of law. They must and shall be defeated, as surely as the Soviet and Nazi threats were put down.

Obama = America’s greatest enemy.

America worked just fine iuntil sleezy obama got his mitts on it.

Once again obama puts down our country, I have lost count how many times he has done this.

TREASON from Obama He Says " "Victory" Not Necessarily The "Goal" In Afghanistan"


Obama: "Victory" Not Necessarily The "Goal" In Afghanistan

Video statement by the Traitor!


Obama: "Victory" Not Necessarily The "Goal" In Afghanistan

FOX News:

Obama has put securing Afghanistan near the top of his foreign policy agenda, but "victory" in the war-torn country isn't necessarily the United States' goal, he said Thursday in a TV interview.

"I'm always worried about using the word 'victory,' because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur," Obama told ABC News.

"I'm always worried about using the word 'victory,' because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur," Obama told ABC News.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama is a fool. If we're not fighting to win, what the HELL are we doing there anyway? He has our troops in danger and he is telling them he does not want victory? This guy is nuts!

He wants to give aid and comfort to the enemy while simultaneously crushing the spirit of our own troops! Just tell them you're not playing to win, that you're asking them to sacrifice basically for nothing. OMG

This is treason! I can’t believe it ..... what a Bastard!

More troops died in Afghanistan this month than in any previous month, and the Obama tells those parents/spouses/children that “winning” isn’t a goal?

There is no other way to state it. This bastard needs to be thrown out of office now!

This makes me ill. He has changed the ROE too , makes it much more dangerous for our troops. We are basically protecting their dope now and can’t bomb their building and we have to read them miranda right to boot . Sickening!

Marines were sent in without a lot of supplies they needed .Now sending more Army in as well as I posted about a couple of days ago.

The hell that Iraq was for our troops especially when they worked to get to Baghdad, Iraq was paradise compared to Afghanistan under this new management.

Obama Orders Review of Alleged Slayings of Taliban During Bush Era vs. Horse Soldiers

Obama orders review of alleged slayings of Taliban in Bush era


Obama has ordered national security officials to look into allegations that the Bush administration resisted efforts to investigate a CIA-backed Afghan warlord over the killings of hundreds of Taliban prisoners in 2001.

"The indications that this had not been properly investigated just recently was brought to my attention," Obama told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview during the president's visit to Ghana. The full interview will air 10 p.m. Monday, tonight.
"So what I've asked my national security team to do is to collect the facts for me that are known, and we'll probably make a decision in terms of how to approach it once we have all of the facts gathered up," Obama said.

The inquiry stems from the deaths of at least 1,000 Taliban prisoners who had surrendered to the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance in late 2001.

The fighters were in the custody of troops led by Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum, a prominent Afghan warlord who has served as chief of staff of the country's post-Taliban army.

Dostum, a former communist union boss and militia leader who fought against the U.S.-backed mujahedeen in the 1980s, is known for switching sides as Afghanistan's political conflict has evolved. When the United States invaded Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, Dostum sided with the Americans and received military and CIA support to battle the Taliban.

At the time, the Boston, Massachusetts-based group Physicians for Human Rights said it found a mass grave in nearby Dasht-e Leili, where witnesses said the bodies of Taliban prisoners were buried. The finding prompted U.S. Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the invasion of Afghanistan, to support an investigation into the allegations.

But The New York Times, citing government officials and human rights organizations, reported Friday that the Bush administration "repeatedly discouraged efforts to investigate the episode."
When asked by CNN about whether Obama would support an investigation, the president replied, "I think that, you know, there are responsibilities that all nations have, even in war. And if it appears that our conduct in some way supported violations of laws of war, then I think that, you know, we have to know about that."

If you have read Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan you will be outraged by the statement that Obama intends to investigate the actions of General Dostum in the death of 1,000 Taliban prisoners, while also investigating the Bush administrations unwillingness to press charges of some sort at the time.

You may not know, but Dostum is a colorful General in the Northern Alliance, working on various sides of various issues and often for himself, as warlords do. This event is with respect to the prison riot that erupted after the Taliban started to collapse in the fall of 2001. That is the prison riot where an American CIA agent was killed by the Taliban prisoners.

For background, a small team of US special forces and CIA agents went into Afghanistan in the fall of 2001, right after 9-11 and teamed with what was left of the northern alliance (Dostum and others) to take down the Taliban. They fought against the Taliban in some of the most unconventional ways - taking on Taliban Tanks while Dostum's guys and CIA were on horse back, calling in JDAM GPS guided weapons from B52s built in the 60's, using a satellite hand held radio. Special Forces, CIA, and the Northern Alliance did what the Russians had failed to do, take over Afghanistan. And they did it in months.

Franks and others had wanted to delay 6 months and deploy 50k-100k troops to do what these guys accomplished in a short time before winter came. Under the Franks plan thousands more would have died, on both sides.

The Horse Soldiers, as they were called, exhibited the best traits, true American spirit, working closely and respectfully with local leaders like Dostum to adapt to the regional realities. The book contrasts the success in Afghanistan to the difficulties in Iraq, where our policies were less integrated with regional politics and realities. Afghanistan and taught us that working with marginal characters like Dostum is a lesson in respecting others. Isn't it Obama that keeps telling us to think about other people and their cultures? I suspect the Bush team understood that, and that's why Bush did not investigate the deaths related to the prison riot in greater detail.

So the prison story goes a bit like this...

There are two types of Taliban, Afghan and non Afghan. When an Afghan Taliban gives up he pledges allegiance to the Northern Alliance, and won't switch sides unless there is some other lost battle. The non Afghan Taliban will never surrender. So, Dostum beat the hell out of a key Taliban leader on the battle field. The Taliban surrendered. So Dostum had to take the radicalized non-Afghan Taliban and stick them in a prison (Because its easy to find a prision for 1,000 people in the middle of a bombed out country). The Afghan Taliban were all let go after pledging allegiance to Dostum. Well it appears, this surrender was actually a ploy of sorts. The non-afghan Taliban prisioners all kept their weapons (long story, read the book). And after some time staged an uprising to take over the prision. Dostum was not fully prepared. His troops shot their machine guns from the prison turrets and killed hundreds of prisioners, but they kept coming. The Taliban had no intention of surrendeirng. The fight lasted several days. Ultimately they had the last of the Taliban cornered in a lower level, pooring kerosene in to burn them out. When that did not work they redirected an irrigation system to flood them out. Something like 35, of more than 1,000 killed, were still alive and surrendered. One of those was that jerk John Walker Lynn.

This was a war. Dostum is a questionable character, but in a Jack Bauer kind of way. Hell Jack was probably there.

More importantly, if you listen to the guys who were in the book, you get a much better insight into what wars of the future might be like and how we need to work with local factions to achieve victory without putting 100k troops at risk. This is a dumb investigation. It works against the the lessons from the battle. Some things should just never be investigated. There is no way to judge the actions of someone in the battlefield 8 years after the fact. And for those that talk about civil rights, what about the rights of the 10,000 troops that would have died through a conventional American invasion?

I suspect there are other reasons for the investigation, as a matter of fact all the new investigations (Dostum, CIA, unwarranted this or that). If your poll numbers start going down, take on the the other guy (Bush) and start blaming him. Economy not doing well, can't blame Bush its the Obama plan. But you can go after Bush about war Crimes.


Wild Thing's comment......

Obama has lost what little mind he has if he’s even thinking of a prosecution about this. Obama to stir up a “war crimes” is bad enough and WRONG, then add in that the surge he just ordered has just begun and our brave men are dying over there mostly because of his ROE not to shoot at the Taliban if one civilian could be hit. When we know the Taliban hide behind them, dress in Burqas and hide among children and in homes of civilians. He is also giving the Taliban a morale boost and some propganda support on top of that!

With declining poll numbers threatening his governmental take over of our country and all of it's citizens lives, he props himself the only way he knows how, which is by attacking President Bush. And he chooses to villainize and stigmatize the one group of Americans he and Bill Ayers so jealously hate...our precious U.S. Military.

Obama doesn't have a clue what war is, what our military go through, sacrifice, put up with, are in danger every second 24/7. Not a clue!!! This would fall under his BIGGEDT apology ever in the sickest way possible. Next Obama will be calling for NATIONAL Day of Mourning for fallen Taliban by U.S. Forces. And what the hell is wrong with killing the Taliban anyway!

Dostum may be a questionable character, but he, the CIA, and our awesome Special Ops guys did what had to be done. This investigation is nothing but cover for the Obama Admin.

The fall of the Taliban government in Kabul to the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan was a fantastic achievement for our Special Forces, Bush /Cheney ( I still think Cheney had a lot to do with it in the background he is a take no prisoner kind of guy) and Rumsfeld.

The media was doing their propaganda machine on it and mostly only wanted to point out they still did not get Bin Laden.

Obama Speaks At G8 Summit In Italy ( another apology )

Barack Obama speaks about climate change Thursday, July 9, 2009, during the G8 Summit in L'Aquila, Italy

"I don't think I have to emphasize that Climate Change is one of the defining moments of our time, the science is clear and conclusive and the impacts can no longer be ignored. Ice sheets are melting, sea levels are rising, our oceans are becoming more acidic and we've already seen its effects on weather patterns, our food and our water sources, our health and our habitats."
(At 1:55)
"Developed countries like my own have a historic responsibility to take the lead, we have a much larger carbon footprint per capita, and I know that in the past (Bush again) the United States have fallen short of meeting it's responsibilities, so let me be clear, those days are over"

Wild Thing's comment.........

He can't help himself, he has to put the USA down in each country he goes to. I say he can't help himself because he has NO love for America, he resents it I think. So he just won't even try to hold back.

This is such an unforgivabble thing for him to do. I wish any President that did this kind of thing would be immediately kicked out of office.

Anti-American With a Podium Obama Refuses to Admit US Won Cold War


Major Garrett interviewed President Obama after his little speech in Moscow. Even when he’s not apologizing he still downplays America’s standing in the world.

GARRETT: In your speech this morning, you said the Cold War reached its conclusion because of the actions of many nations over many years. Mr. President, are the Russian sensitivities so fragile that you can’t say the Cold War was won? The West won it? And it was led by a combination of Democratic and Republican American presidents?

OBAMA: Well, listen, the — I think that you just cut out Lech Walesa and the Poles. You just cut out Havel and the Czechs. There were a whole bunch of people throughout Eastern Europe who showed enormous courage.

And I think that it is very important in this part of the world to acknowledge the degree to which people struggled for their own freedom. I’m very proud of the traditions of Democratic and Republican presidents to lift the Iron Curtain.

But, you know, we don’t have to diminish other people in order to recognize our role in that history.


Wild Thing's comment........

American patriots rolling in their graves at warp speed.

To admit the US won the cold war would be admitting that that the US did something good, Obama doesn't want to admit that. Obama was on the enemies side during the cold war. He still is, the marxist quisling.

Barack Hussein Obama D-Day Speech




Obama's remarks at the D-Day 65th anniversary ceremony, as prepared for delivery.

President Obama's prepared remarks on the 65th Anniversary of D-Day:

Good afternoon. Thank you President Sarkozy, Prime Minister Brown, Prime Minister Harper, and Prince Charles for being here today. Thank you to our Secretary of Veterans Affairs, General Eric Shinseki for making the trip out here to join us. Thanks also to Susan Eisenhower, whose grandfather began this mission sixty-five years ago with a simple charge: "Ok, let's go." And to a World War II veteran who returned home from this war to serve a proud and distinguished career as a United States Senator and national leader: Bob Dole.

I am not the first American president to come and mark this anniversary, and I likely will not be the last. It is an event that has long brought to this coast both heads of state and grateful citizens; veterans and their loved ones; the liberated and their liberators. It has been written about and spoken of and depicted in countless books and films and speeches. And long after our time on this Earth has passed, one word will still bring forth the pride and awe of men and women who will never meet the heroes who sit before us: D-Day.

Why is this? Of all the battles in all the wars across the span of human history, why does this day hold such a revered place in our memory? What is it about the struggle that took place on these sands behind me that brings us back here to remember year after year after year?

Part of it, I think, is the size of the odds that weighed against success. For three centuries, no invader had ever been able to cross the English Channel into Normandy. And it had never been more difficult than in 1944.

That was the year that Hitler ordered his top field marshal to fortify the Atlantic Wall against a seaborne invasion. From the tip of Norway to southern France, the Nazis lined steep cliffs with machine guns and artillery. Low-lying areas were flooded to block passage. Sharpened poles awaited paratroopers. Mines were laid on the beaches and beneath the water. And by the time of the invasion, half a million Germans waited for the Allies along the coast between Holland and Northern France.

At dawn on June 6th, the Allies came. The best chance for victory had been for the British Royal Air Corps to take out the guns on the cliffs while airborne divisions parachuted behind enemy lines. But all did not go according to plan. Paratroopers landed miles from their mark, while the fog and the clouds prevented Allied planes from destroying the guns on the cliffs. So when the ships landed here at Omaha, an unimaginable hell rained down on the men inside. Many never made it out of the boats.

And yet, despite all of this, one by one, the Allied forces made their way to shore - here, and at Utah and Juno; Gold and Sword. They were American, British, and Canadian. Soon, the paratroopers found each other and fought their way back. The Rangers scaled the cliffs. And by the end of the day, against all odds, the ground on which we stand was free once more.

The sheer improbability of this victory is part of what makes D-Day so memorable. It also arises from the clarity of purpose with which this war was waged.

We live in a world of competing beliefs and claims about what is true. It is a world of varied religions and cultures and forms of government. In such a world, it is rare for a struggle to emerge that speaks to something universal about humanity.

The Second World War did that. No man who shed blood or lost a brother would say that war is good. But all know that this war was essential. For what we faced in Nazi totalitarianism was not just a battle of competing interests. It was a competing vision of humanity. Nazi ideology sought to subjugate, humiliate, and exterminate. It perpetrated murder on a massive scale, fueled by a hatred of those who were deemed different and therefore inferior. It was evil.

The nations and leaders that joined together to defeat Hitler's Reich were not perfect. We had made our share of mistakes, and had not always agreed with one another on every issue. But whatever God we prayed to, whatever our differences, we knew that the evil we faced had to be stopped. Citizens of all faiths and no faith came to believe that we could not remain as bystanders to the savage perpetration of death and destruction. And so we joined and sent our sons to fight and often die so that men and women they never met might know what it is to be free.

In America, it was an endeavor that inspired a nation to action. A President who asked his country to pray on D-Day also asked its citizens to serve and sacrifice to make the invasion possible. On farms and in factories, millions of men and women worked three shifts a day, month after month, year after year. Trucks and tanks came from plants in Michigan and Indiana; New York and Illinois. Bombers and fighter planes rolled off assembly lines in Ohio and Kansas, where my grandmother did her part as an inspector. Shipyards on both coasts produced the largest fleet in history, including the landing craft from New Orleans that eventually made it here to Omaha.

But despite all the years of planning and preparation; despite the inspiration of our leaders, the skill of our generals, the strength of our firepower and the unyielding support from our home front, the outcome of the entire struggle would ultimately rest on the success of one day in June.

Lyndon Johnson once said that there are certain moments when ".history and fate meet at a single time in a single place to shape a turning point in man's unending search for freedom."

D-Day was such a moment. One newspaper noted that "we have come to the hour for which we were born." Had the Allies failed here, Hitler's occupation of this continent might have continued indefinitely. Instead, victory here secured a foothold in France. It opened a path to Berlin. And it made possible the achievements that followed the liberation of Europe: the Marshall Plan, the NATO alliance, and the shared prosperity and security that flowed from each.

It was unknowable then, but so much of the progress that would define the twentieth century, on both sides of the Atlantic, came down to the battle for a slice of beach only six miles long and two miles wide.

More particularly, it came down to the men who landed here - those who now rest in this place for eternity, and those who are with us today. Perhaps more than any other reason, you, the veterans of that landing, are why we still remember what happened on D-Day. You are why we come back.

For you remind us that in the end, human destiny is not determined by forces beyond our control. You remind us that our future is not shaped by mere chance or circumstance. Our history has always been the sum total of the choices made and the actions taken by each individual man or woman. It has always been up to us.

You could have done what Hitler believed you would do when you arrived here. In the face of a merciless assault from these cliffs, you could have idled the boats offshore. Amid a barrage of tracer bullets that lit the night sky, you could have stayed in those planes. You could have hid in the hedgerows or waited behind the sea wall. You could have done only what was necessary to ensure your own survival.

But that's not what you did. That's not the story you told on D-Day. Your story was written by men like Zane Schlemmer [SHLEM er] of the 82nd Airborne, who parachuted into a dark marsh, far from his objective and his men. Lost and alone, he still managed to fight his way through the gunfire and help liberate the town in which he landed - a town where a street now bears his name.

It's a story written by men like Anthony Ruggiero [Ru gee AIR o], an Army Ranger who saw half the men on his landing craft drown when it was hit by shellfire just a thousand yards off this beach. He spent three hours in freezing water, and was one of only 90 Rangers to survive out of the 225 who were sent to scale the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc [Pwante-doo-ock]

And it's a story written by so many who are no longer with us, like Carlton Barrett. Private Barrett was only supposed to serve as a guide for the 1st Infantry Division, but he instead became one of its heroes. After wading ashore in neck-deep water, he returned to the water again and again to save his wounded and drowning comrades. And under the heaviest possible enemy fire, he actually carried them to safety. He carried them in his own arms.

This is the story of the Allied victory. It is the legend of units like Easy Company and the All-American 82nd. It is the tale of the British people, whose courage during the Blitz forced Hitler to call off the invasion of England; the Canadians, who came even though they were never attacked; strongthe Russians, who sustained some of the war's heaviest casualties on the Eastern front; and all those French men and women who would rather have died resisting tyranny than lived within its grasp.

It is the memories that have been passed on to so many of us about the service or sacrifice of a friend or relative. For me, it is my grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who arrived on this beach six weeks after D-Day and marched across Europe in Patton's Army. And it is my great uncle who was part of the first American division to reach and liberate a Nazi concentration camp. His name is Charles Payne, and I am so proud that he is here with us today.

I know this trip doesn't get any easier as the years pass, but for those of you who make it, there's nothing that could keep you away. One such veteran, a man named Jim Norene [Nor EEN], was a member of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne. Last night, after visiting this cemetery for one last time, he passed away in his sleep. Jim was gravely ill when he left his home, and he knew that he might not return. But just as he did sixty-five years ago, he came anyway. May he now rest in peace with the boys he once bled with, and may his family always find solace in the heroism he showed here.

In the end, Jim Norene came back to Normandy for the same reason we all come back. He came for the reason articulated by Howard Huebner [HUBE ner], another former paratrooper who's here with us today. When asked why he made the trip, Howard said, "It's important that we tell our stories. It doesn't have to be something big.just a little story about what happened - so people don't forget."

So people don't forget.

Friends and veterans, what we cannot forget - what we must not forget - is that D-Day was a time and a place where the bravery and selflessness of a few was able to change the course of an entire century. At an hour of maximum danger, amid the bleakest of circumstances, men who thought themselves ordinary found it within themselves to do the extraordinary. They fought for their moms and sweethearts back home, for the fellow warriors they came to know as brothers. And they fought out of a simple sense of duty - a duty sustained by the same ideals for which their countrymen had fought and bled for over two centuries.

That is the story of Normandy - but also the story of America. Of the minutemen who gathered on a green in Lexington; of the Union boys from Maine who repelled a charge at Gettysburg; of the men who gave their last full measure at Inchon and Khe San; of all the young men and women whose valor and goodness still carry forward this legacy of service and sacrifice. It is a story that has never come easy, but one that always gives us hope. For as we face down the hardships and struggles of our time, and arrive at that hour for which we were born, we cannot help but draw strength from those moments in history when the best among us were somehow able to swallow their fears and secure a beachhead on an unforgiving shore. To those men who achieved that victory sixty-five years ago, I thank you for your service. May God Bless you, and may God Bless the memory of all those who rest here.


Wild Thing's comment.........

First I have to point this out, OMG, this is so embarassing. Obama was the ONLY speaker that used a teleprompter!!!!!

He couldn't speak from his heart if his life depended on it. OH wait he would have to have a heart first.

Obama stands against all the principles of freedom, and his presence on such hallowed ground is a sacrilege!

Obama is void of emotion. To me, he sounded like an ANGRY black man talking down to the crowd. It’s almost like every speech he has, he’s just dying to say, o’h I would done that better and I would have done this better and blah blah blah

Sarkozy’s speech was fabulous!

"I am not the first American president to come and mark this anniversary, and I likely will not be the last."

Obama says he “likely” won’t be the last POTUS to honor the D-Day commemoration. I know we have all said he might very well change the laws so he can stay president, but OMG.

"We live in a world of competing beliefs and claims about what is true. It is a world of varied religions and cultures and forms of government. In such a world, it is rare for a struggle to emerge that speaks to something universal about humanity.

The Second World War did that. No man who shed blood or lost a brother would say that war is good. But all know that this war was essential. For what we faced in Nazi totalitarianism was not just a battle of competing interests. It was a competing vision of humanity. Nazi ideology sought to subjugate, humiliate, and exterminate. It perpetrated murder on a massive scale, fueled by a hatred of those who were deemed different and therefore inferior. It was evil."

In summary, to Obama the Nazis were evil because they were intolerant of others. The why doesn't Obama challenge the intolerant of today: the MUSLIMS ! But Nazis were not bad because they were intolerant, but because they were statists. They extolled the state above freedom. Sound like anyone we know?

"The nations and leaders that joined together to defeat Hitler's Reich were not perfect. We had made our share of mistakes, and had not always agreed with one another on every issue. But whatever God we prayed to, whatever our differences, we knew that the evil we faced had to be stopped. Citizens of all faiths and no faith came to believe that we could not remain as bystanders to the savage perpetration of death and destruction."

The obligatory apology. There was, however, no particular reason to bring religion into the discussion. It wasn't a religious war. Obama constantly says let me be clear or make this clea, well then let US also be clear - it was primarily Christians and Jews who fought the Nazis. Not Muslims - they joined with the Nazis. Some Buddhists, but many eastern religions would have been more closely allied with Japan.

So why bring up religion? Because it is another chance for Obama to support the idea what Muslims are just like any other religion. Indeed, it is a chance for ALL religions to be devalued because they apparently are pretty much all the same.

"On farms and in factories, millions of men and women worked three shifts a day, month after month, year after year."

Hint - farms don't work on three 8 hour shifts. Nor is there anything all that heroic about working an 8 hour shift. No, it DOESN'T compare to spending 24 hours/day in mud & cold facing enemy fire. By equating it, Obama devalues those who DID risk their lives.

"Lyndon Johnson once said that there are certain moments when "...history and fate meet at a single time in a single place to shape a turning point in man's unending search for freedom."

LBJ was a fake war hero. Don't quote him in front of real heroes.

"You could have done what Hitler believed you would do when you arrived here. In the face of a merciless assault from these cliffs, you could have idled the boats offshore. Amid a barrage of tracer bullets that lit the night sky, you could have stayed in those planes. You could have hid in the hedgerows or waited behind the sea wall. You could have done only what was necessary to ensure your own survival."

Written by someone who hasn't been in combat. The paratroopers were NOT watching the tracers, nor did they really have the option of hiding in the planes forever.

"...the Canadians, who came even though they were never attacked; the Russians, who sustained some of the war's heaviest casualties on the Eastern front;..."

The Canadians had come under attack. Ask the families of those who died at Dunkirk and elsewhere. Canada was part of Great Britain, and it would have been unthinkable in that day to stay out of it. And the Russians? Yes they died, but not at Normandy and they continued to die in huge numbers after the war because Uncle Stalin was every bit as evil as Hitler.

Obama's was the speech of someone who doesn't understand belief in God, freedom, or patriotism.

Obama: "United States is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world"

Obama: United States is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world

Canada Free Press

What planet is he on?

"Obama Says U.S. Could Be Seen as a Muslim Country, Too,"

by Jeff Zeleny

HAHN, Germany

As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.

In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”...

Was that an observation or a wish?

“What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States, but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what’s happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” Mr. Obama said.
The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world “have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.”

I'm all for that. And I hereby offer my services to assist in this great effort.

“And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,” Mr. Obama said. “And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.”...

Here is a What-Is-Obama-Smoking? Alert:

Indonesia: 200 million Muslims. India: 156 million Muslims. Pakistan: 150 million Muslims.

United States: 2.3 million Muslims (according to the Pew Research Center).

“I think the most important thing I want to tell young people is that, regardless of your faith, those who build as opposed to those who destroy I think leave a lasting legacy, not only for themselves but also for their nations,” Mr. Obama said. “And the impulse towards destruction as opposed to how can we study science and mathematics and restore the incredible scientific and knowledge — the output that came about during centuries of Islamic culture.”...


Wild Thing's comment........

Even the official White House transcript of the interview has him saying:

And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.

First he said in the past......... "America is not a Christian country," while abroad, and now he tell a French reporter that "America is the largest Muslim nation."

I repeat, what a Maroon. The man, and I use the term loosely, will say any fool thing that pops into his head that might ingratiate him with the "target audience". He apperently doesn't even care if it's true.

He must be talking about the additional 7 States me spoke of during his campaign..."the 57 States."

Please God, make him go away.

Obama's European Apology Tour: Next stop - Dresden

Obama's European Apology Tour: Next stop - Dresden

American Thinker

Obama will probably make a stop at Dresden while on his second European trip that will climax with a speech in Normandy on June 6 marking the 65th anniversary of D-Day.

Rosenthal points out a little misdirection from the administration in that they will also probably schedule a stop at Buchenwald, the notorious concentration camp that Obama believes his uncle helped liberate in 1945.

The message Obama intends to send by visiting both sites is clear; while the Germans did bad things during World War II, they were also victims of Allied atrocities:

The symbolic significance of a visit to Dresden by the American president - especially one undertaken in connection with a D-Day commemoration in France - may be missed by some Americans, but it is absolutely unmistakable for the German public. For Germans, Dresden is the symbol bar none of German suffering at the hands of the Allies. The city was heavily bombed by British and American air forces in February 1945, toward the end of the war. According to the most recent estimates of professional historians, anywhere from 18,000 to at most 25,000 persons died in the attacks. These numbers come from a historical commission established by the city of Dresden itself. But far higher numbers - ranging into the hundreds of thousands - have long circulated in Germany and beyond. The bombing of Dresden is commonly described as a "war crime" in German discussions.
Alleged crimes committed by the Allies against Germans and Germany have indeed become a sort of German literary obsession in recent years, with numerous books being devoted to the subject.

The President of the United States may be planning on equating the strategic bombing of a German city with the deliberate murder of millions of innocents.

Indeed, Rosenthal states that it would be impossible for Obama to go to Dresden and not mention the bombing. And what of his stop at Buchenwald?

It is virtually unthinkable that Obama could give a speech in Dresden and not allude to the bombing of the city. Most of the city's historical monuments - which Obama's advance team were apparently inspecting - were severely damaged or destroyed in the bombing and had to be rebuilt. Moreover, for Obama to visit both Dresden and Buchenwald would suggest precisely the sort of outrageous parallels that have become commonplace in Germany at least since the publication of Friedrich's The Fire.

Barack Obama is fulfilling the dreams of liberals who, for more than 40 years have seen the role played of the United States in world affairs since before World War I as having a disasterous effect on mankind. This kind of thinking explains the "Blame America First" mentality that has guided liberal foreign policy since the 1960's, turning the policies practiced by Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson which recognized America's leading role in world affairs into an orgy of self-loathing and a desire to subsume American interests in favor of a squishy internationalism guided by the thugs and fools at the UN.

No doubt Obama will speak strongly against Nazi terror while in Dresden. But what does it say about our president that he may very well equate what happened to the Jews with what happened to German citizens during the war? Is he capable of recognizing the moral difference? Is he capable of recognizing evil at all?

If a big enough stink is made before the itinerary is set, it may be possible to dissuade the president from making a moral idiot of himself. But given the cheerleading he will receive from his leftist friends, that may not be possible.


Wild Thing's comment..........

When will this insanity stop! Will he be apologize for the Pilgrims????

We've seen this coming from the far left and media for a long time, that Dresden and Hiroshima should be considered "war crimes." And Obama owns the left and takes it even further left.

I bet traitor Obama is definitely going to apologize for America’s role in WWII. There’s no other reason for him to go to Dresden. This is getting really sick. I hope the veterans’ groups get all over the Whitehouse and the press before he can pull this off.

We couldn't have fought WWII under the conditions imposed by the Dims and MSM. I can just imagine all the prosecutions of troops that would have come after especially nasty fights like the Bulge after the Malmedy Massacre or on many of the Pacific atolls, where very few prisoners were taken. They're just a bunch of hypocrites the way they feign praise on the WWII vets and trash the Vietnam and Iraq vets.

Hussein Obama to Address Muslim World From Egypt ~ Apology Tour, Part Deux

Obama to Address Muslim World From Egypt

The Washington Post

By Anne E. Kornblut
President Obama will make his promised speech to the Muslim world from Egypt, a White House official said on Friday.

Obama pledged during the campaign to address the Muslim world from a Muslim capital within the first few months of taking office. Picking a site proved challenging for a range of reasons -- from diplomacy to security -- and the decision took longer than expected, with Obama commissioning options from a research team.

Having settled on Egypt, the White House today announced that he is adding a stop there to his early June overseas trip. That trip will also take him to Normandy, France, for the anniversary of D-Day, and to the Buchenwald concentration camp and Dresden, Germany.

Choosing Egypt will inevitably bring comparisons with a major speech that then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gave in Cairo 2005, urging democracy and reform in the Middle East.

In that speech, Rice specifically urged the Egyptian government to "put its faith in its own people," calling on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to end violent attacks on pro-democracy demonstrators, stop "arbitrary justice" and lift emergency decrees allowing the police to break up gatherings of more than five people. She also made similar demands on Saudi Arabia, another close U.S. ally. However, Rice tempered her comments by saying the United States had "every reason for humility" because of its history of slavery and racism.

Mubarak, who will meet with Obama at the White House later this month, was so angered by the democracy push that he did not make his annual spring visit to Washington for all of Bush's second term. The Obama administration, in its budget released this week, has already loosened restrictions imposed by Bush to ensure some U.S. aid went to democracy groups not approved by the Egyptian authorities.


Wild Thing's comment........

The clear and present danger continues.

Here it is, folks, the first sentence of his speech: ʾašhadu ʾal lā ilāha illa l-Lāh, wa ʾašhadu ʾanna muḥammadar rasūlu l-Lāh
(I testify that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet).

More from this POS would be ...Muslim’s are wonderful and are responsible for all good things that have happened to America. America is evil and responsible for all the suffering in the Muslim world

Obama's Apology To Leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan

Barack Obama, meets with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, left, and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, Wednesday, May 6, 2009, in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington

Obama expresses regret for Afghan civilian deaths

My Way

Flanked by the leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan, President Barack Obama expressed deep U.S. regret Wednesday for civilian casualties in a deadly incident this week in western Afghanistan, promising "every effort" to avoid recurrences in the war against a rising Taliban insurgency.

Obama had a more upbeat and determined tone as he lauded "unprecedented cooperation" between the two neighbors in fighting Taliban and other extremist threats. But he cautioned that success will not come quickly.

"Along the border, where insurgents often move freely, we must work together with a renewed sense of partnership to share intelligence and to coordinate our efforts to isolate, target, and take out our common enemy," Obama said after a day of meetings with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.

Obama met separately with Karzai and Zardari, followed by a three-way session that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton portrayed as an embodiment of a central tenet of the administration's new Afghan war strategy - that Pakistan and Afghanistan are linked problems.

The latest report of Afghan civilian casualties came at an especially awkward time for the administration, which is stepping up its military campaign inside Afghanistan while also seeking to emphasize the importance of nonmilitary efforts to stabilize the country. The U.S. has pledged, for example, a major increase in civilian expertise in farming and other specialties, along with an increase of 21,000 U.S. troops.

Gen. Jim Jones, Obama's national security adviser, told reporters that the president began his meeting with Karzai by addressing reports that dozens of civilians had been killed by American bombs on Sunday.

Jones said Obama commented "with great sympathy" and expressed regret for the loss of innocent life. Earlier, before her meetings with Karzai and Zardari at the State Department, Clinton said the U.S. "deeply, deeply" regrets the losses.

Both Obama and Clinton stopped short of accepting U.S. blame for the deaths.

Obama told Karzai that investigations "will be pursued aggressively with full intent to discover what in fact did happen, how it happened and how we can make sure that things like that do not happen again.

And it was clear that President Karzai was moved by that ... and he thanked the president for starting off the meeting with that expression of condolence."

Karzai did not ask that U.S. airstrikes be suspended or reduced in intensity pending the outcome of the investigation, Jones said.

Nor did Zardari raise an equally sensitive topic on his side of the border - the use of U.S. Predator aircraft to attack extremist targets, Jones said. Pakistanis have strongly protested those attacks, saying they have killed innocent civilians.

In Afghanistan, the U.S. forces commander said it wasn't a certainty that Sunday's deaths were a result of U.S. military action. Gen. David McKiernan said American forces came to the aid of Afghans who may have been ambushed by the Taliban. He said the Taliban beheaded three civilians, perhaps to lure police.
"We have some other information that leads us to distinctly different conclusions about the cause of the civilian casualties," McKiernan said. He would not elaborate.
Karzai, whose public criticism of U.S. airstrikes has grown increasingly indignant, thanked Clinton politely for her concern.
"We appreciate that," Karzai said. "And we hope we can work together toward reducing and eventually completely removing the possibilities of civilian casualties."

The United States has estimated that 80 percent or more or civilian deaths are caused by militants, not U.S. or allied forces, but Obama and his advisers say they know the corrosive effect the airstrikes have on civilian support for the military mission.

In his remarks at the White House, Obama emphasized the progress he said was achieved in the Washington meetings.

"We have advanced unprecedented cooperation," Obama declared. "We will work for the day when our nations are linked not by a common enemy but by a shared peace and prosperity."

Veteran diplomat Richard Holbrooke, the administration's point man for Afghanistan and Pakistan and a participant in the meetings, was upbeat in brief remarks after Obama summarized the day's talks. "It was a day that exceeded our expectations," Holbrooke said. "We turned a corner" in improving coordination.

Gathering the three leaders together at one table, along with lower-level officials from the three countries, "reflects the kind of concrete cooperation and detail that is going to ultimately make a difference in improving opportunity and democracy and stability in Pakistan and in Afghanistan," Obama said.

The stakes couldn't be higher, he said.

"We have learned time and again that our security is shared," the president said. "It is a lesson that we learned most painfully on 9/11, and it is a lesson that we will not forget."

The president said all three governments must cooperate in fighting insurgents who control parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan and must "deny them the space" to threaten local residents - or Americans.

Earlier in the day, Clinton told reporters that Karzai and Zardari made specific commitments of how they would increase the fight against militants. She wouldn't name their promises yet, but said the talks were "producing some very promising early signs" of greater cooperation.

"I am very optimistic that this process is making a difference," she said in remarks in the White House briefing room.


Wild Thing's comment...........

Their leadership shouldn’t be mingling with civilians, if they do the deaths are their responsibility.

"Obama told Karzai that investigations "will be pursued aggressively with full intent to discover what in fact did happen, how it happened and how we can make sure that things like that do not happen again."

OMG if this doesn't come close to a JOHN MURTHA statement I don't know what does.

This POS Obama needs to learn he is the CIC and we are at WAR and he is pretending to be an American and he better freaking start to act like one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this was during D-Day, Obama would have focused on civilian deaths rather than how the Allies were liberating France.

Obama aka Carter II In Mexico on His Bash America Tour

Obama blaming America and saying that most guns in Mexico come from the United States:

"A demand for these drugs in the United States is what is helping keep these cartels in business ... more than 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States," President Barack Obama said Thursday.

However, Fox News debunked this claim weeks ago: "It's just not true. In fact, it's not even close. The fact is, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S."

Obama Wants Us To "stand in someone else's shoes" Regarding Terrorists

LA Times

There's always two sides to an issue," he said. The route to peace, he said, begins by trying to "stand in someone else's shoes."

you can go to minute 3:23 "America has become "selfish" "crass " - the country that Obama knows.

"America has made mistakes and has its flaws" - frankly, the only one mistake I can think of is his presidency. Do you hear any other world leader talk about their country the way this thief-in-the-night does? On foreign soil no less. Have you seen any other leader trashing his country everywhere he goes?

And the terror loving media picks up on it immediately. Here is AP's take:

Obama said that despite its flaws and past mistakes, the United States is poised for a fresh start with Muslims and the rest of the world"


President Barack Obama heralded a "new chapter of American engagement" with the world on Tuesday and vowed to forge new relationships in the Middle East and elsewhere. But he cautioned that turning U.S. policy in a new direction would take time.

"States are like big tankers, they're not like speedboats. You can't just whip them around and go in another direction," Obama said in a question-and-answer session with a group of Turkish college students.
"You turn them slowly, and eventually you end up in a very different place," he said, responding to a student who asked whether he would bring about real change from policies of his predecessor.

Obama ended his first overseas trip as president with an appeal to the world to put aside stereotypes and misconceptions: the view by many Muslims that Israel is to blame for all problems, similar views in reverse by "some of my Jewish friends," the view in parts of the world that Americans are crass and selfish.

"The world will be what you make of it," Obama told the students. "You can choose to make new bridges instead of new walls."

Obama ended his eight-day swing with a two-day visit to Turkey, a key NATO ally and the only major member of the alliance that is predominantly Muslim.

"You will find a partner and a friend in the United States of America," he told young people as he sought to repair heavy damage to the U.S.-Turkish relationship caused by the war in Iraq, which Turkey opposed.

Notice how he keeps saying, "peoples and countries, through no fault of their own, are being very hard hit by the world economic crisis" (minute .15) - implying of course that it's the US's fault. He does this deliberately. He did this in London too. Blamed America for the world "global crisis". He wants the world to blame us. He wants to drum up anger and hate and fuel the anarchy in the streets toward the US.

For more on this please go here for a larger write up about this. Atlas Shrugs Blog She did a lot of work on this and there is a lot of important information.


Wild Thing's comment............

To see both sides of something when it comes to terrorists and I firmly believe that is what Obama has in his mind for all of us to do is stupid and worse yet it is anti-American, and treasonous.

He is dangerous!!!

Obama Declares U.S. Not At War With Islam


Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as U.S. president, declared Monday the United States 'is not at war with Islam' and called for a greater partnership with the Islamic world. (April 6) (AP)

Obama declares US not at war with Islam


ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States "is not and will never be at war with Islam."

Calling for a greater partnership with the Islamic world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important U.S. ally in many areas, including the fight against terrorism. He devoted much of his speech to urging a greater bond between Americans and Muslims, portraying terrorist groups such as al Qaida as extremists who did not represent the vast majority of Muslims.

"Let me say this as clearly as I can," Obama said. "The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical ... in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject."

The U.S. president is trying to mend fences with a Muslim world that felt it had been blamed by America for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Al Jazeera and Al Arabiyia, two of the biggest Arabic satellite channels, carried Obama's speech live.

Obama said the partnership between the U.S. and the Muslim world is critical in rolling back what he called a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.

"America's relationship with the Muslim world cannot and will not be based on opposition to al Qaida," he said. "We seek broad engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect."

"We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country," Obama said.

Obama also said, to a round of applause, that the United States supports Turkey becoming a member of the European Union.

Snipets I have taken from full rtranscript as released by the White House:

Mr. Speaker, Madam Deputy Speaker, distinguished members, I am honored to speak in this chamber, and I am committed to renewing the alliance between our nations and the friendship between our people.

This morning I had the privilege of visiting the tomb of the great founder of your Republic. I was deeply impressed by this beautiful memorial to a man who did so much to shape the course of history. But it is also clear that the greatest monument to Ataturk’s life is not something that can be cast in stone and marble. His greatest legacy is Turkey’s strong and secular democracy, and that is the work that this assembly carries on today.

Let me be clear: the United States strongly supports Turkey’s bid to become a member of the European Union. We speak not as members of the EU, but as close friends of Turkey and Europe. Turkey has been a resolute ally and a responsible partner in transatlantic and European institutions. And Turkey is bound to Europe by more than bridges over the Bosphorous. Centuries of shared history, culture, and commerce bring you together. Europe gains by diversity of ethnicity, tradition and faith – it is not diminished by it. And Turkish membership would broaden and strengthen Europe’s foundation once more.

~ snipet ~

I say this as the President of a country that not too long ago made it hard for someone who looks like me to vote. But it is precisely that capacity to change that enriches our countries. Every challenge that we face is more easily met if we tend to our own democratic foundation. This work is never over. That is why, in the United States, we recently ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed, and prohibited – without exception or equivocation – any use of torture.
Another issue that confronts all democracies as they move to the future is how we deal with the past. The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods. Facing the Washington monument that I spoke of is a memorial to Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed those who were enslaved even after Washington led our Revolution. And our country still struggles with the legacy of our past treatment of Native Americans.

I have made it clear to the people and leaders of the Islamic Republic that the United States seeks engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect. We want Iran to play its rightful role in the community of nations, with the economic and political integration that brings prosperity and security. Now, Iran’s leaders must choose whether they will try to build a weapon or build a better future for their people.

I know there have been difficulties these last few years. I know that the trust that binds us has been strained, and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced. Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.

But I also want to be clear that America’s relationship with the Muslim work cannot and will not be based on opposition to al Qaeda. Far from it. We seek broad engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, bridge misunderstanding, and seek common ground. We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. And we will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better – including my own country. The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their family, or have lived in a Muslim-majority country – I know, because I am one of them.

Above all, we will demonstrate through actions our commitment to a better future. We want to help more children get the education that they need to succeed. We want to promote health care in places where people are vulnerable. We want to expand the trade and investment that can bring prosperity for all people. In the months ahead, I will present specific programs to advance these goals. Our focus will be on what we can do, in partnership with people across the Muslim world, to advance our common hopes, and our common dreams. And when people look back on this time, let it be said of America that we extended the hand of friendship.

Good grief, Ataturk was a Socialist and cruel dictator who worshiped Stalin as his model for running Turkey.

Awhile back I posted about this:
There are 2.3 million Muzzies living in the US. When asked if suicide bombings that result in killing innocent people is justified 25% said “it depends on the circumstances”. A full 5% believe it’s always a good idea to kill “nonbelievers” in any way possible. about 115,000 Muzzies that live, work, play and enjoy the fruits of America on a daily basis.

Jordan -- Christian until Muslim invasions
Egypt -- Christian until Muslim invasions
Iraq -- Mainly Christian until Muslim invasions
Afghanistan -- mostly Buddhist and Hindu until Muslim invasions
Turkey -- Christian until Muslin invasions
Tunisia -- Christian until Muslim invasions
...not to mention others, such as Sudan, ALgeria, Morocco, southern Spain (where it took 800 years to throw the Muslimes out), Albania, and on and on and on and on.

Islam is the work of the Devil.

Charles Krauthammer Fires Back At Blame America First Obama

Krauthammer On Obama's 'American Arrogance' Comment: 'Europe's Been Sucking On Our Tit For 60 yrs'

Wild Thing's comment.........

Krauthammer isi so good! Charles is a glimmer of sanity in our Orwellian capital.

Obama is a communist and a traitor. He views America from a Kenyan/Indonesian/Muslim perspective and will do whatever he can to destroy our country.

When I hear anti-Americans like Obama putting our country down I am reminded of this movie.

Paddy Chayefsky on European contempt for Americans from the WWII era movie "The Americanization of Emily"

One of my favorite quotes from ‘The Americanization Of Emily’:

Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison:

"You American haters bore me to tears, Ms. Barham. I’ve dealt with Europeans all my life. I know all about us parvenus from the States who come over here and race around your old Cathedral towns with our cameras and Coca-cola bottles... Brawl in your pubs, paw at your women, and act like we own the world. We over-tip, we talk too loud, we think we can buy anything with a Hershey bar. I’ve had Germans and Italians tell me how politically ingenuous we are, and perhaps so. But we haven’t managed a Hitler or a Mussolini yet. I’ve had Frenchmen call me a savage because I only took half an hour for lunch. Hell, Ms. Barham, the only reason the French take two hours for lunch is because the service in their restaurants is lousy. The most tedious lot are you British. We crass Americans didn’t introduce war into your little island. This war, Ms. Barham to which we Americans are so insensitive, is the result of 2,000 years of European greed, barbarism, superstition, and stupidity. Don’t blame it on our Coca-cola bottles. Europe was a going brothel long before we came to town."

Obama criticizes the U.S. Again and More Contradictions From The Dems Idol

Obama criticizes some Guantanamo release decisions


President Barack Obama says the U.S. hasn't done a good job sorting out who should be released from the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

Obama says in a broadcast interview that some of the people released from the facility in Cuba have rejoined terrorist groups. He also says U.S. officials have not always been effective in determining which prisoners will be a danger once they are let go.

But he says the Bush administration's policy of holding detainees for years on end with no trials is "unsustainable,' and has only fueled anti-American sentiments.

Wild Thing's comment...........

More Obama-babble, trying to play to all sides. And what happened to how he was going to solve all the problems of the world. HUMPH!

"Obama says the U.S. hasn't done a good job sorting out who should be released from the Guantanamo Bay detention center. "

Yes sure ok, it'd be far better to release them onto the streets of the US so we can see who decides to murder people, and then we can rearrest them and try and incarcerate them...well, only to the point we rehabilitate them and release them onto our streets again.

Obama is always blaming the US. Well listen up ole B. Hussein Obama, YOU are the government, you moron. And it was YOU who wanted these murderers released. There’s a reason why they were locked up at Gitmo. Innocence wasn’t one of them.

Since Presidnet Brainstorm can’t figure it out, he’ll just close it down and let them all go.

Obama, these Terrorists you let go are probably going to be real Pissed off at you for kicking them out of what was probably the best paid vacation they ever had. Three squares a day, all their wants and needs taken care of, their every whim and desire catered too.

And what did you go and do? Sent them back to go live in a cave and eat roasted desert rats.

Oh yea, they are going to get even with you for that, you can count on it.
Unfortunately it’s going to be a price paid for by the American serviceman they kill, again. All you did, Obama, is reinforce their belief in the Koran that “Allah” would reward them for their Jihad efforts, and bring them back to kill again.

Way to go, MORON.

Obama Shows Iran He Is Ashamed of The American Flag

White House blog

Obama released a special video message for all those celebrating Nowruz. Translated "New Day," Nowruz marks the arrival of spring and the beginning of the New Year for millions in Iran and other communities around the world.

This year, the President wanted to send a special message to the people and government of Iran on Nowruz, acknowledging the strain in our relations over the last few decades.

"But at this holiday we are reminded of the common humanity that binds us together," he says.

After committing his administration to a future of honest and respectful diplomacy, he continues on to address Iran's leaders directly:

"You, too, have a choice. The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations. You have that right -- but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization. And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create."

Is President Obama ashamed to display the American flag to Iranians?

Obama Ashamed Of Old Glory? Hides Flag For Message To Iran

Source:Finkel Blog

"Watching TV clips of Pres. Obama’s special message to Iran on the occasion of Nowruz, a holiday that celebrates the first day of spring and the New Year in many countries, I was struck by how tight the frame was cropped. My antennae went up. I found the official White House website for the message, and saw that there were . . . various versions of the message. "

"In the main, generic version, an American flag is plainly visible in the background .But below that there are links to other versions, including “.mp4 with Persian subtitles.” Persian is of course the language of Iran, so that is the version the White House wanted to be seen there. "
The American flag has disappeared from the background [see screencap above the break]. So that’s why the image was cropped so tight. At times, the prez’s American flag lapel pin can be seen, but during most of the message the cropping is so tight that even that small American symbol is invisible.
Looks like Pres. Obama was worried about offending the mullahs and Ahmadinejad by displaying Old Glory.

Wild Thing's comment........

Never thought we would see something like this happening. But then I never thought any of the other stuff would be happening either.

When the Islamist nuclear device explodes in an American city the Kenya jerk will feel it in his approval numbers.

Government Takes Over, Obama Apologizes

Government takes over, Obama apologizes


The Obama administration, completing its first full week, wasted no time getting priorities in order. First, issue formal apologies to the world, and then begin advancing massive, intrusive government at home.

The president chose Arab television, Al Arabiya, to give his first sit down interview. He took the opportunity to confirm the long held Arab view that the real problem is America and President Obama apologized on our behalf.

"...America was not born as a colonial power," he told the Arab viewing audience - implying we are now. And he regretfully confessed that "We sometimes make mistakes. We are not perfect."

Sorry, but weren't we the ones that were attacked? Do we not stand in long lines and disrobe in airports because of them? Does anyone recall anywhere, anytime hearing apologies from any Arab or Muslim leader?

At the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the president's confidant and advisor Valery Jarrett continued with apologies. This time to the world's business and political movers and shakers.

Ms. Jarrett told the crowd that this economic crisis did not occur by "happenstance" but is the result of our "profound irresponsibility."

And the Europeans, Asians, and Russians couldn't have agreed more.

"Chinese and Russian leaders blamed a free-wheeling U.S. financial system as the source of the global economic crisis," according the Wall Street Journal.

European Commission president Jose Manuel Barraso proclaimed confidently that "President Obama is moving toward a European-style model."

Our new president is a man of action as well as a man of words, so while he and his staff apologized to the world for who we have been, he began the task at home to make us a different country.

Under the pretense of economic stimulus, the president began in earnest his work to nationalize the American economy.

He lobbied all week for a pork-laden spending bill that, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will add another trillion dollars to our national debt, which is rapidly becoming as large as our gross domestic product - the value of all goods and services that Americans produce in one year.

We should be thinking about King Solomon's words in Ecclesiastes that there is "nothing new under the sun."

Nowhere -- anytime or anyplace -- has economic growth and prosperity been created by government taking the money of its own citizens and spending it as it sees fit.

Now, we go beyond taking it from our own citizens and we're taking it from the children and grandchildren of our own citizens.

Aside from the pure waste, government spending for "stimulus" and bailouts prevents and discourages the real adjustments that need to take place.

In an interview last December, Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen pointed out that tough and lean times are exactly the environment that produces innovation. According to the professor, "...if you give people a lot of money, it gives them the privilege of pursuing the wrong strategy for a very long time. In an environment where you've got to push innovations out the door fast and keep the cost of innovation low, the probability that you'll be successful is actually much higher."

It's exactly this kind of innovation that we need. And it's exactly what we will not get as we pour trillions of debt-ridden government money -- obligations made on us taxpayers -- into the economy.

Sure there will be beneficiaries. But they're all in Washington or getting money directly from Washington.

At $3.2 billion, lobbying expenditures in 2008 were up 14 percent over 2007. Of the nation's major metropolitan areas of more than 1 million, Washington has the second-lowest unemployment rate in the country. And its average household income is almost 50 percent above the nation's average.

If and when Barack Obama stops genuflecting before an unfree world and remembers that America is about freedom, perhaps our recovery will start.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Excellent article on HO-Bama .

There is nothing like having a president, who blames his own country for everything that's wrong in the world. He’s only getting away with it because the media hates America as much as he does.

Obama Bashes Declaration of Independence at Start of His Train Tour


Barack Hussein Obama starts his train trip in Philly with a speech In Philadelphia.


Partial text:

"We are here to mark the beginning of our journey to Washington. This is fitting because it was here, in this city, that our American journey began. It was here that a group of farmers and lawyers, merchants and soldiers, gathered to declare their independence and lay claim to a destiny that they were being denied.
It was a risky thing, meeting as they did in that summer of 1776. There was no guarantee that their fragile experiment would find success. More than once in those early years did the odds seem insurmountable. More than once did the fishermen, laborers and craftsmen who called themselves an army face the prospect of defeat.
And yet, they were willing to put all they were and all they had on the line — their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor — for a set of ideals that continue to light the world. That we are equal. That our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness come not from our laws, but from our maker. And that a government of, by and for the people can endure. It was these ideals that led us to declare independence and craft our constitution, producing documents that were imperfect but had within them, like our nation itself, the capacity to be made more perfect.
We are here today not simply to pay tribute to our first patriots but to take up the work that they began. The trials we face are very different now, but severe in their own right. Only a handful of times in our history has a generation been confronted with challenges so vast. An economy that is faltering. Two wars, one that needs to be ended responsibly, one that needs to be waged wisely. A planet that is warming from our unsustainable dependence on oil.
And yet while our problems may be new, what is required to overcome them is not. What is required is the same perseverance and idealism that our founders displayed. What is required is a new declaration of independence, not just in our nation, but in our own lives — from ideology and small thinking, prejudice and bigotry — an appeal not to our easy instincts but to our better angels."

But Obama’s “new Declaration of Independence” does not need God and does not want Him. Let us simply call it what it is: the Declaration of Independence from God, or - better yet - the “God Damn America Declaration of Independence.”

"We can also realize that the Declaration of Independence that Obama now wants to replace also implies another reality: the reality that a government that replaces God is a tyrannous institution.
You can understand why Obama - who fundamentally believes that ONLY government can save us, and who passionately believes that a gigantic government bureaucracy that intrudes into absolutely every aspect of our lives - would want to see that “old” Declaration of Independence as well as the “old” America itself go the way of the dinosaur."


Wild Thing's comment.........

Dear God please know half of our country did not vote for this person. We love America and are sickened by what is happening.

Obama wants to abandon everything that our Nation was founded upon. He has a lot of nerve to say what he calling the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence “documents that were imperfect but had within them, like our nation itself, the capacity to be made more perfect.”...... but he keeps telling us this over and over how he loaths and disrespects our Constitution and all our documents that we have.

This is yet another speech he made, not yesterday but back in March 18th of 2008 and yes once again in Philadelphia, PA at Constitution Center.

It is called 'A More Perfect Union'

Check this one out as well , the very opener of the video he is trashing our Constitution. He says it is stained!!!!

"PHILADELPHIA - "We the people, in order to form a more perfect union."

"Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America's improbable experiment in democracy. Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787.
The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished. It was stained by this nation's original sin of slavery, a question that divided the colonies and brought the convention to a stalemate until the founders chose to allow the slave trade to continue for at least twenty more years, and to leave any final resolution to future generations. "
