Nero Has Nothing on This Guy

~ “LETTERS FROM AMERICA” - by The Metaphysical Peregrine ~

The Middle East is in chaos. Libyan dictator Khadafy is murdering his people. An American female reporter is beaten and ganged raped by Egyptian thugs. Saudi’s are moving into Bahrain. Lebanese again clashing with their oppressors the Syrians. Pirates are capturing ships and killing American citizens.  Obama mouths empty platitudes and does nothing.

Japan is in serious serious trouble. Obama mouths empty platitudes and does nothing.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers are getting murdered in Mexico. They travel there unarmed. This time he doesn't  mouth empty platitudes, he sends 20 more unarmed ICE agents to Mexico. (It’s against Mexican law for foreign law officers to have guns.)

Mexican drug cartels control huge swaths of the US\Mexican border. Signs are put up warning US citizens to stay out of those areas. US citizens along the border are being beaten, murdered, raped and their property is being stolen and destroyed. Obama mouths empty platitudes and does nothing, other than sue Arizona for enforcing Federal immigration laws he refuses to.

Union and Democrat Party thugs are sent to Wisconsin to protest what the Governor is doing to balance the state budget. Obama’s campaign organization, “Organizing for America” is sent there to bully and intimate. People get hurt, there’s vile foul language, the State Capitol Building is invaded by these people Obama supports. He’s spoken in favor of their behavior. Democrat elected officials flee the state to avoid voting on the budget, and Obama approves.  The protesters, when they left after nearly four weeks, left behind $7.6 million worth of damage and trash cleanup and repair.

Obama’s Black Attorney General refuses to prosecute Blacks and focuses prosecutions on Whites. People have quit the Justice Department in protest. 

Obama took an oath to uphold the laws of the land, and abide by the Constitution. He has instructed his racist attorney general to not support the "Defense of Marriage Act", which is federal law. It states marriage is between a man and a woman. 

Obama has stopped oil production in the Gulf since the oil explosion last year. Leases have not been renewed; no new leases have been made. Oil production has plummeted. Then he says about off shore oil production, “So any notion that my administration has shut down oil production might make for a good political sound bite, but it doesn’t match up with reality. We are encouraging offshore exploration and production.”  Federal judges rule the moratorium is unconstitutional. He forges ahead. Gas prices are skyrocketing.

His healthcare program has been ruled unconstitutional because the commerce clause doesn’t include forcing citizens to buy a private sector product, in this case insurance, and he ignores the ruling. He said health care prices will be reduced by his program; heathcare costs are skyrocketing.

His economic plan has added $trillions to our national debt. He continues to borrow and print money. The “stimulus” money that was supposed to go to the private business sector went mostly to state and local governments, whose employees are union members and got paid with that money. Then the union dues where deducted, and the unions sent the money back to the Democrat Party. Federally funded money laundering. The balance of the "stimulus" money went to Wall Street fat cats and their bankers.

Unemployment hovers around 10%. That’s the official number. People that have used up their unemployment benefits are no longer counted. People with low paying part time jobs that used to have well paying full time jobs, are not counted. The real number of unemployed is between 17% and 20%.

These are the most glaring examples of his uncaring incompetence. Most of the time regular citizens don’t pay much attention to politics and policy in off election years, but this year citizens are beginning to take notice.

He has played more rounds of golf than any other president. He hosts weekly parties at the White House. Today he took time to fill in his NCAA Basketball playoff predictions and will be on television tomorrow with them.

Even members of his own political party are starting to grumble the he needs to show some leadership. He’s nowhere to be found during the current budget negotiations.   

From a Rasmussen poll: His approval rating is going in the tank.

The world is catching fire. Obama sits. The US is on the brink of economic, social and political meltdown. I'm nervous for the world. I'm nervous for my country. 


  1. On the Lybian question, Berlusconi government is rather disappointing too.

    The wait for approval from the UN, NATO, the Arab League, ... and do nothing.

    It's 1956 Hungary all over again.

    Who would have guessed that Sarkozy would turn out to be the more principled one?

  2. With regard to international issues, if Obama were, say, the president of Belgium or the Netherlands, with all due respect to those countries, then one might simply shrug his shoulders and say, so what?—unless you were Belgian or Dutch, of course. But, unfortunately, he is the leader of the most powerful country in the world. But that doesn’t mean that Europe is without fault. On the contrary! What a sad scenario…

  3. Very much relevant to the above post
    Obama the Invisible, by John Podhoretz (Thanks: Enzo).

  4. This is more or less what I posted earlier today on Mark Mardell's America (BBC):

    When a head of State makes a verbal commitment- 'Gaddafi must go', in principle he is morally obliged to back it up, or make sure that it's going to be the case. But this isn't the first time that Obama has shown incoherency and indecision regarding foreign affairs. His ill-advised first notion of withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in August of 2011, and then changing the date to 2014 was worrying. Surely the necessity to even allude to it, thus informing the Taliban clearly of the US' (and thus Nato's) intentions, was also ill-advised.

    Libya has been his first real, external test, rather than an inherited problem, and unless there are secret arrangements that will help the oppressed and oust Gaddafi, which now seem very doubtful, from here it looks to me as though Obama blew it.

    His backing of a corrupt President who apparently has no respect for the basic rules of democracy that Nato and US troops are supposed to be defending, is also incoherent. How senseless it seems to regularly arm and finance Pakistan, when there are still hostile elements who are evidently able to divert such aid to the direct advantage of the Taliban. How incongruous for US and Nato soldiers to be killed or wounded by the Taliban armed with modern US and UK weapons..

    He has stated that he supports the Iranians who were fighting for their freedom, dying or being murdered, imprisoned and tortured for daring to protest. But his determination in not following the footsteps of Bush seemed to have got the better of him as he persisted far too long in offering Ahmadinejad his hand with an aim to create an opportunity of dialogue (if not friendship.?).

    He accepted the responsibilities of Iraq and Afghanistan half-heartedly, and it painfully shows. In fact it's probable that Obama isn't interested in foreign affairs. He is mainly interested in continuing his US reforms, and even there he is introducing over-extravagant statism politics that are hardly likely to stimulate the US economy after one of the worse economical crisis in history.

    This isn't an expression of any political tendency. Whatever one's party, it's the qualities of the person that counts. I believe Clinton, for example, also a democrat, obtained very good results, certainly regarding US economics.
    Limiting oneself just to the Democrats, so leaving John McCain out, Hilary Clinton could well have been a better choice than Obama. It's clear that she has more courage, as well as the ability to make clear cut decisions when they are necessary.

  5. In related news, it seems that the UN finally approved the No-fly zone enforcement over Lybia.

    Hoping it's not "too little, too late".

  6. That would be an out and out lie. President Obama's economic plan did not add 'trillions' to the deficit and you'd have to truly NOT be paying attention to even half-a believe that. President Obama PUT Bush's war budget back into the economic factor so that the American people could see how much that war on Iraq cost us. Bush took it out, President Obama put it back in so we could all understand the devastating economic effects of that war, as well as the human toll it took on us. Bush and his "creative financing" was hiding that from us and President Obama refused to keep telling the American public a lie about the true cost of that war. He knew he'd get blamed for ditching the economy, but he went into office and demanded they put Bush's war BACK into the budget - that's what sent it skyrocketing into oblivion, and it had nothing to do with the Obama administration economic policies. Period.
