In many articles over the past several months, such as this one by Brett Stephens in the Wall St Journal today, the argument is made, or is foundationally based on the idea, that “Mr. Obama bankrupts his country while appeasing his foe.”
But it is the foundation of the argument made by the columnist that is incorrect.
To understand what is happening, one must look at the big picture from Obama’s standpoint.
Obama’s enemy is the wealth-creating, freedom- and liberty-loving West, particularly America.
It also is becoming increasingly obvious that he views Europe as the enemy, as well. Look at Poland and the Czech Republic. They tried to help America help them in their tough neighborhood and The Messiah promptly – UNILATERALLY – peed in their sandbox. And Britain? The country that did more than any other to stop the slave trade? It would be difficult to script a treatment of America’s major ally dripping with more contempt than Obama childishly and churlishly has displayed toward the UK.
Bankrupting America, a capitalist country at the heart of the West militarily, culturally and economically, unilaterally cutting Europe out of any security envelope and relegating them to irrelevancy, while concurrently doing everything he can to move forward the enemies of Western Civilization, of freedom, of liberty and of civilizational progress, is EXACTLY what Obama sees his mission as being in defining a new world order ala Barack.
Reducing the defenses of America, as well as our ability to project defense of freedom and free nations globally, is just a bonus for him along the way. Those countries that once knew they could count on America to defend them and their interests, and so which decided to forego their own nuclear stockpiles, now are reviewing their non-buidling of nukes and likely will go ahead, sparking many regional nuclear arms races globally.
What do you think Obama’s nihilistic speech at the UN was about other than his view of a new world order with himself in charge?
Obama is just about certifiable – and he is very, very dangerous… not only to Americans who believe in our exceptionalism, but also to those naive enough in Europe and America to see him as the Second Coming.
Obama is not appeasing America’s foes while bankrupting his country. On the contrary, he is bankrupting his foe, America, while appeasing his friends, which he – in his own dimension – views as America’s friends, since, obviously, America is now all about him.
