Defeated and Broken
Barack Hussein Obama intends to use executive power to regulate so-called greenhouse gases in a war on global warming which itself is a hoax that has enriched those pushing the notion in the billions of dollars and is actually an assault on America's prospereity, our economic strength that has flowed from our ability to harness abundant cheap energy that has always been largely carbon-based (oil and coal). Just as the US GDP is revised down, Obama uses the powers of the executive branch to throw cold water on the engine of our economnic dynamism before it has the chance to really heat up. Then there is Obama's rush to fold in Afghanistan to the Taliban, who shielded Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda allowing them to plan the September 11, 2001 attack and who continued to protect bin Laden after that heinous sneak attack. Our troops have died in the thousands to defeat these Taliban who are the most atavistic, xenophobic, and misogynistic terrorists at work in the world today. Instead of destroying these throwback thugs, Obama believes we have something to negotiate with them. Obama is now further gutting the army by dismatling a dozen combat brigades (out of forty-five) and cutting the number of active duty soldiers to 490,000 from the current level of 570,000. The United States is not yet defenseless but we are far less safe than we were at the end of the George W. Bush administration, and on a trajectory not only to lose our status as the world's last superpower but to cease being even a First World economic and military polity.
