The incredible electoral landslide victory of non-conservative radical populist Donald Trump, who ran on an anti-elite platform and appealed to the working class, was a watershed moment in all of American history.
Following an extraordinarily acrimonious campaign, we are now witnessing the shattering of the last remnants of establishment politics and liberal bias in the news media as well as a surprising end to the Bush and Clinton dynasties. Trump’s remarkable struggle against his detractors and sore losers transmogrifying into ‘useful idiots’, and the increasingly irrelevant media’s mockery of the president-elect ad nauseam was a dramatic triumph over adversity.
HIs stunning election triumph that sent the Democratic Party into a tizzy, was a full-scale repudiation of Barack Hussein Obama and everything Hillary Clinton stands for. Obama-Clinton’s wider left-establishment cabal and their counterpart in the GOP establishment, represents everything that is wrong with politics in America, and the mainstream media, no longer capable of instilling trust, has lost its credibility.
People are fed up with the status quo, and with the duplicitous phonies and frauds in Washington – and Trump promised to “drain the swamp.”
Americans have known all along: Obama-Clinton completely neglected and ignored the will of the American people in pursuit of a subversively pro-Islamist globalist agenda, Marxist beliefs and evident willingness to undermine and destroy U.S. sovereignty.
Obama’s actions showed deep-seated antipathy to Israel and hatred for everything American. His narcissism, wishful thinking, servile bowing to a foreign power and tacit support of the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House heavily influenced the feckless administration’s policies.
After eight years of a lawless presidency and unprecedented actions without consequences, “politics under Obama now seem not just naive but delusional.” Abysmally, Obama’s so-called redemption of American society and radical transformation of America as we know it is driven by retribution not ideology.
Obama once promised that he would “always have Israel’s back.” But the most fervently pro-Israel Jewish American and Gentile community didn't see the writing on the wall, didn't realize he meant he would do so with a dagger. Choosing not to veto a UN resolution censuring the Jewish state over biblical Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, the lame duck’s parting legacy of stabbing “Israel in the back” was truly appalling.
This is not just scandalous; it’s absurd. America acquiesces to a declaration that, as a matter of international law, the Jewish state has no claim on the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, indeed the entire Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. They belong to 'Palestine.'
The Kerry blame-Israel narrative and Obama’s UN betrayal undermine the very foundation of American Middle East policy for the first time in 36 years. This is not just scandalous; it’s absurd. America acquiesces to a declaration that, as a matter of international law, the Jewish state has no claim on the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, indeed the entire Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. They belong to 'Palestine.'
And unlike Obama's federal shenanigans, which can be undone when Trump comes into power, the damage in the U.N. may be irreversible.
This is yet another sad reminder of Obama’s senseless revenge and retribution against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the State of Israel. Instead of choosing truth and reconciliation, Obama exploited Muslim grievances, fanned the flames of hatred and religious mistrust, creating even more fear, violence and terrorism across the globe.
Obama's deep-seated “political narcissism” and delusions left the Middle East burning and turned the world upside down. From attacks on our own soil and overseas to the tragedy in Benghazi, the policies of Obama and Clinton have left us vulnerable.
Trump was right: ‘Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi. Then they put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons.’
Hillary’s meddling in the “Arab Spring” and the failure of America's Do-Nothing Policy in the Middle East gave rise to unprecedented human disasters, global chaos, gut-wrenching violence and expansion of Islamic terrorism and havens for terrorists across the globe, not to mention the presence of Islamist terror training camps, coddling ISIS terrorists as refugees and drug cartels inside the U.S. homeland.
Another thing seems certain: Obama’s disastrous pro- Muslim, anti-Israel foreign policy and its legacy will be even more tarnished by Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals. In the end, the Obama administration will go down as the second largest criminal organization coming in just behind the Clinton's “pay for play” globalist agenda with an admixture of socialist and rigid Marxist ideology.
Regardless of how the White House spins this, Obama’s ‘deep emotional ties to Islam’ and projection of an image of weakness and defeat have significantly hurt the United States and Israel, emboldened America’s enemies, endangered our traditional allies and compromised U.S. security.
As someone concerned with his image more than anything else, Obama was paralyzed by the fear of adverse consequences in the Middle East and Ukraine. But this is the inevitable result of hollow words and inaction, red lines crossed without consequences, tarnished moral influence, ‘leading from behind,' and a total lack of American leadership.
As the most sanctimonious, self-righteous and arrogant presidency in history, Obama denigrated America and made it powerless in world affairs.
And the Obama-Clinton era is probably not over yet. Obama plays it cool on the golf course, breaking records for the sheer number of pardons for terrorists and criminals as a wave of terror spreads across the globe.
There are no words to describe it. The Obama-Clinton era was fraudulent, treasonous, risky and impertinent and full of embarrassing foreign policy failures. But that can't be the end of the hapless administration’s stonewalling, lies, secrecy, cronyism and outright chicanery.
In its latest update, Judicial Watch said that following Obama’s latest vacation in Hawaii, the travel costs over the last eight years have reached more than $96.9 million. With what will be nearly $8 trillion dollars tacked on to the national debt, Obama has added by far more to the U.S. debt than any president in history.
But Obama seems to be planning to save his 'legacy' by sabotaging Trump. Obama’s acts of rhetorical sabotage, depicting Trump’s election as a disaster, opening a new Cold War with Russia, a national-monument land grab, eliminating the national immigration registry, ban on oil drilling, and the great Guantanamo jailbreak are unworthy of any U.S. president about to leave office.
So this is the way the disgraceful Obama administration and Hillary's political future ends ; not with a bang, to paraphrase T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men", but a pathetic whimper and a dagger in Israel’s back!
