The Geneva talks, also being called the P5 plus 1, were supposed to put a halt to any unauthorized enrichment of uranium. President Obama was telling the media that he would impose tougher sanctions if Iran did not cooperate and would demand that inspections of the previously undisclosed nuclear facility near Qom to be within 2 weeks. Before the talks, Obama stated, “We’re committed to serious and meaningful engagement, but we’re not interested in talking for the sake of talking. If Iran does not take steps in the near future to live up to its obligations, then the United States will not continue to negotiate indefinitely. And we are prepared to move towards increased pressure.”

One would take President Obama’s remarks as a warning to Iran that they must live up to the obligations set by previous UN agreements and to cooperate with the proposals in the Geneva talks. But that is not what happened. Obama’s administration spokesman, on the next day, took back the two week deadline and said there was no “hard and fast deadline,” and “we don’t have like a drop-dead date.” Which is just what the so-called UN Security Council decided on, giving Iran a date of October the 25th for the inspections to begin. This is plenty of time for them to “clean up” any suspicious activity in the hidden facility.

The supposed “deal” that was concluded from the Geneva talks was to send approximately one nuclear-weapon’s worth of Iran’s low enriched uranium (LEU) to Russia for enrichment to 19.75% and fabrication into fuel rods for Tehran’s research reactor. But an unnamed Iranian official said that this deal “is just based on principles. We have not agreed on any amount or any numbers.” Even if it is, this is undermining the UN’s Resolution 1696 which required Iran to “suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development.”

So Iran has already, numerous times, broken sanction resolutions and yet they find it okay to help them enrich the Uranium in Russia bringing it to just under the 20% definition of weapons-grade? The Obama administration is trying to say that after the uranium is fashioned into fuel rods that it cannot be enriched any further. But this is a lie, this is making it easier for Iran to make a nuclear weapon. As stated online in the Wall Street Journal:

“The 19.75% enriched uranium could be reconverted into uranium hexafluoride gas and quickly enriched to 90%. Iran could also “burn” its uranium fuel (including the Russian LEU available for the Bushehr reactor) and then chemically extract plutonium from the spent fuel to produce nuclear weapons.”

This is clearly not the direction that we were hoping the Geneva talks would be headed. But as we have seen repeatedly in the past 10 months, Obama cowtows to the foreign leaders and lets Iran leave the talks with a victory that will inevitably come back to haunt us. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is even boasting to the Iranian people that he has won without war and without sanctions. The bottom line is that the UN asked Iran not to enrich uranium and Obama and the UN Security Council has just given Iran the green light to go ahead an do it anyways even in light of the recent reveal of Iran having plans to build WMD and Russian scientists assisting with the program.

News travels quickly whether good or bad. And that goes for even the news surrounding the 2016 Olympics which President Obama and the first lady spent a large amount of time and tax dollars lobbying for to be held in their adoptive home town of Chicago Illinois. Ignoring important national priorities such as Iran’s deception about their hidden nuclear facility, the unemployment rate in the US still rising, and the failing war in Afghanistan; President Obama thought it was imperative that he take nearly a week to fly to Denmark and plead his case as to why the Olympics should be in Chicago in 2016. The first lady Michelle Obama, felt it was so important that she even said it was a “sacrifice” for her, President Obama, and (can’t leave out our elite friends) Oprah.

Obama’s decision to spend so much time on the 2016 Olympics rather than other world issues is even frowned upon by world leaders such as those in France, Britain, and China. Obama’s disregard for the true national priorities were a testimony to them of the lack in leadership that the new President possesses. It goes to show, Obama can grovel and try to impress the world as much as he wants, but he will ultimately lose respect for not leading. Losing Chicago serves them right for allowing it to take precedence over the other matters of national importance.

After all, it is not advertising, bowing down, or a utopian ideology that has made America great. It is our freedom and our strength. It is the resolve in the past to not go down without a fight, and to take on anyone that threatens the freedom and liberty of our nation. It is the determination of our past leaders to see to the issues that effect us most as a nation and handle them in the strongest, and fastest way in the best interest of the people.

As the President of the United States of American, President Barack Obama had no business blind siding the important issues at home and abroad, wasting precious time and money, for a silly aspiration of the Olympics in his home town.

On a lighter note, check out this video footage which I find quite comical of the reaction to the loss of the 2016 Olympics in Chicago:

There will be more video to come, there is a certain one I am looking for right now.

As we all know President Barack Obama has this utopian ideology that he can create a world without nuclear weapons through sitting down and talking with the thug leaders of the countries determined to become a nuclear power. We heard in his speech to the UN about this wishful thinking, all while other powerful world leaders quietly stood by in disbelief at the weakness of the new American President. While giving that address Obama and other UN officials were fully aware of Iran having the hidden nuclear facility that was revealed to the public the following day. But instead of taking advantage of the audience that he had, Obama brushed of the Iranian threat as if it was a third world country trying to create its own clothes line. Obama should have used the timing to rally international support and prepare to take action against Iran and their long history of illegal tactics as soon as possible.

This left world leaders who are accustomed to a strong United States of America perplexed. The America that the world, and all of us, knew was one that would not stand for the rebellious acts of Iran and North Korea. But, trying not to “spoil the image of success” for President Obama, the foreign leaders remained silent at the Summit and tossed the information they had planned to discuss regarding Iran’s latest deceit.

President Sarkozy has been the most vocal about his disapproval of Obama’s foreign policy and handling of the current nuclear crises. In Sarkozy’s remarks which he mockingly called the “dream” of disarmament, he said:

“I support America’s ‘extended hand.’ But what have these proposals for dialogue produced for the international community? Nothing but more enriched uranium and more centrifuges. And last but not least, it has resulted in a statement by Iranian leaders calling for wiping off the map a Member of the United Nations. What are we to do? What conclusions are we to draw? At a certain moment hard facts will force us to make decisions.”

How can it be that the President of France is showing more strength and resolve than the President of the United States? Not to mention this is happening while our leader is off lobbying for the Olympics to be held in Chicago in what seems to be either an effort to ignore the crises at hand or blatant proof of just how far in over his head Obama is with foreign affairs. He even sees fit to “sit down” with the Iranian leader to discuss solutions to their nuclear rebellion. It is an outrage and an embarrassment that our President is conducting himself in this manner, he really needs to get a backbone and fast. It is a sad day when over seas news publishes references to the weakness of America’s leadership; which is what I will leave you with, the words of how we are now seen. As stated in the Telegraph, “Barack Obama’s weakness on the world stage will inevitably lead to the decline of America as a superpower. That’s not “smart power” – it’ is a policy of defeat.”

Just the other week at the United Nations Summit, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel condemned the UN for allowing an audience to a terrorist thug of a leader, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who also has openly denied the Holocaust and has repeatedly stated that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth.  With the threat of developing nuclear weapons by Iran, Netanyahu pleaded the case for not only his people, but also for all those who choose to be on the right moral side of this issue.  To stand up and demand that the rest of the world do like wise and stop Iran from not only threatening Israel, but also the rest of the Western World.  After hearing his speech I was reminded of a bible verse; Zechariah 14:2 (NKJ) – For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the house rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. And also verse 14:3 (NKJ)- Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as He fights in the day of battle. With this in mind, let us all pray for the safety of Israel and for our leaders to do what is right and morally just.

There is a lot going on in the world today, and that is especially true for the United States of America. On top of an unsteady economy, there are nuclear threats to our allies from Iran, North Korea testing war heads, the world wanting to dump the American dollar, the losing war in Afghanistan, and countless other foreign and domestic issues that require the attention of the US Commander in Chief. But where is our President? Aside from a meeting here and there for what President Obama calls “foreign policy”, he can be found working out, playing 18 holes of golf, enjoying tax funded concerts, hosting tax funded dinners, and as of recently, pulling for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Chicago. I sure am glad he has his priorities straight.

President Obama felt it was necessary to fly to Denmark to lobby for the Olympics in 2016 to be held in the US city of Chicago, elevating this “issue” to a matter of national importance. It is the first time EVER in history that an American President has appeared before the Olympic Committee to bring the games to the country.

I suppose our other international matters are not as pressing. After all, nuclear threats, failing economy, debates in the White House over numerous bills, are not what America needs to focus on at this time. Right? And when you can spend your time and tax payers’ dollars on fun, who wouldn’t take advantage of the down time? You can simply ignore the warnings of a losing war, let other foreign leaders handle the terrorists, and tell the American people things are going great. Oh, and to make yourself look better be sure to get on TV a lot. You know, make advertisements for late night television, hang out with Jay Leno, and appear on every news station to voice your agenda (except for the conservative ones, you wouldn’t want any confrontation).

I think that President Obama is treating his presidency more like a multi-billion dollar company that needs only selective attention rather than a country with a variety of matters. He pays little attention to the issues that do need his immediate attention and blows off the ideas and recommendations of anyone that has conflicting ideas for Obama’s agenda. He has not met with House Republicans since April to review the over 800 amendments they have proposed. He has only spoken with General McChrystal, whom he put in charge of the war in Afghanistan, one time since appointing him even after the warning of losing the war and the request for more troops. Obama treated the G20 Summit like a tree huger convention with a touch of one world planning, and spends a lot of his time relaxing, touring over seas, sight seeing, and lobbying for the Olympics. The only thing I have seen a lot of effort on from the President is his health care reform agenda in which there has been much time spent covering up lies, keeping the people who are for it convinced, and making sure that no one knows that the “other side” has offered many alternatives. I am all for “family night” and a little weekend down time, but Obama seems to do it quite often and not just on the weekends. The election is over Mr. President, it is time to take charge and protect and serve your country as you have promised.

Today, September 23, 2009, President Obama addressed the United Nations General Assembly for the first time in his presidency. In what sounded like more of a sales pitch than a speech, Obama almost immediately starts with summing up what he has “accomplished” during his first 9 months in office. Recapping everything from closing Guantanamo Bay to the billions of dollars flushed down the toilet investing in “clean energy”. He seemed anxious to make himself look good for the very little he has done. And, of course, there was heavy focus on climate change and what we should supposedly do about this non existing problem that will inevitably bring about the world’s economic collapse all on it’s own. But, I will not go into the whole “climate” issues discussed (the very last link at the bottom of this post goes into climate change) because I am personally growing tired of the same old rhetoric and lies in regards to the false notion that man can somehow destroy what God himself has made.

One of the President’s other main focuses was on what seems to me promises and hopes of a false peace. One of the ways is by  a treaty to have every nation end having nuclear weapons. He told the U.N. General Assembly, “I have outlined a comprehensive agenda to seek the goal of a world without nuclear weapons.” Obama thinks that through this treaty that the world will somehow negotiate a “world without nuclear weapons.” If that isn’t the biggest load of manure I have ever heard! Yes, I can see every nation trusting the others to lay down all their weapons. I really doubt that will truly happen. Obama even suggested that countries such as Iran and North Korea “must face consequences,” but he did not specify what that would be. He did say that America would be holding up their end of the bargain, so we can look forward to Obama further weakening our military and our means of protecting our nation.

The other false peace, that which we know will never happen, Israel and Palestine living peacefully with a 2 state solution. First of all, it is not our land to give Palestine. We have no right to try to force the Israelis out of their land. But, Mr. Obama seems to think that he does. He said “the time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem.” I do not know what the solution is for the Palestinians, but I do know that we can not force Israel to give up their own land. This will never bring peace.

Now, the part of President Obama’s speech that caught my attention the most was a seemingly sneaky way of talking about world order. Or maybe not so sneaky, this is the first part that really opened up that topic with Obama stating:

“In an era when our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game. No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.”

President Obama then continues to tell the General Assembly that they don’t want to be the generation that dragged the arguments of the 20th century into the 21st, but rather they should be the generation “that comes together to serve the common interests of human beings, and finally gives meaning to the promise embedded in the name given to this institution: the United Nations.” So, the ground work for a “new world order” is being placed. It seems that Obama feels more at home being the “President” of the world, than he does the President of the United States.

As far as I know, no sitting President in the United States has ever made so many apologies or bashed America so much as Obama has in his thus far short term. He has insulted our past presidents  and the American people as a whole in the way that he bows down (literally and figuratively) before foreign leaders with no regard for the dignity and exceptionalism of the United States of America. No country has ever so deeply sacrificed or given so much blood for the cause of freedom and happiness around the world. Yet, Obama seems only to be concerned in selling him self to the rest of the nations on earth. God help us all.

This article is 100% opinion based solely on the script of the actual UN speech by President Obama as seen here:

Here we go again, another enemy of the U.S. getting support from Russia to develop nuclear power. Except this time the country is much closer to our shores. Venezuela’s dictator, Hugo Chavez, said the other day that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin agreed to help Venezuela’s nuclear energy program during a meeting in Moscow last week. Of coarse Chavez stated that their goal of nuclear power is just for peaceful purposes and not to build a bomb. Isn’t that what both North Korea and Iran said? With North Korea threatening a third nuclear explosion test and Iran having enough low-enriched uranium to produce one nuclear weapon, stated by a senior U.S. diplomat in The Washington Post, one could only wonder what would happen if Chavez could get his hands on that same kind of material. What would he do with it? He claims that it would be for peace energy purposes, but with his hatred for the U.S. and its’ allies in South America one could only assume that he would use such power to inflict his will on all the countries around the region.

Also, what in the world is Russia up to? For the past eight years Russia has done a lot of supporting most of the U.S.’s enemies around the world. Supplying them with weapons that could help them in defending their countries against American attack or voting against U.S. led UN sanctions in the Security Counsel against countries like Iran. Not to mention Russia patrolling with nuclear-powered attack subs off our eastern seaboard. Why do they need to do that, if we are supposed to have a good diplomatic relationship? Do they want to go back to the way things were during the Cold War? Or are they planning something more sinister? One can only wonder.

Why are the Russian officials giving out limited information regarding the disappearance and recapture of this vessel?  Could this be some sort of  Russian cover-up? Could some in the Russian government be conspiring with terrorist states, shipping goods (nuclear or biological weapons, firearms) to the sponsored states. With Russia helping Iran develop nuclear energy along with giving them other weapons it sure does make one wonder what is really going on. If Russia is supposed to be our friend again, then why are they sending subs to our east coast and making it look as if they have something to hide. They also support our known enemies such Venezula, Iran, and Syria for example. I know this is speculation, I am NOT saying anything is going on, it is just a little unsettling to see so much questionable activity. (Also see previous post about Russian Subs off the East Coast of Canada and the United States)
