I find many things post the November 8th election disturbing. The childish and immature reaction of the progressive socialist left is one. Another is the almost unconscionable doubling down of the left on the denigrating, disparaging and demeaning excuses for losing — including racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia… Heck, I never realized everyone on the left, especially their media, are such experts in psychology. I mean, the ugliness with which a decent and accomplished man such as U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions is being viciously assailed is dumbfounding. And it’s all because he’s a man who believes in the rule of law; all these claims of his racism are silly.However, the most insidious post-election response has been from one President Barack Obama. His swan song final foreign nation trip has been nothing but deplorable — then again, what would you expect from the fella who began his presidency traveling the globe disparaging his own Country? So, Obama is finishing just as he started, and what the heck is “crude nationalism”?
But consider Obama’s lecturing to President-elect Donald Trump on the issue of Russia, as if Obama was anyone to lecture about foreign policy first of all…and about Russia most of all. The little toy reset button has been an abject failure, and we now know how Vladimir Putin defines Obama’s flexibility. Oops, sorry, I should perhaps expound on this for our liberal progressive socialist detractors — then again, nah, just can’t fix stupid as a Drill Sergeant once said…
As reported by the Military Times, A military newspaper says that Moscow has deployed new anti-ship missiles on Pacific islands that are controlled by Russia but also claimed by Japan.
The Boyevaya Vakhta (Combat Duty) newspaper of Russia’s Pacific Fleet reported Tuesday that Bal and Bastion missile systems have been stationed on the islands, called the southern Kurils by Russia and the Northern Territories by Japan.The disagreement over the islands, seized by the Soviet Union at the end of World War II, has kept the two countries from signing a peace treaty formally ending their wartime hostilities.
The move comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to visit Japan next month. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been pushing for progress in the territorial dispute.
Now, this comes on the heels of Russia’s missile buildup in the Kaliningrad. The Kremlin on Tuesday brushed off Western criticism of the deployment of state-of-the art missiles in Russia’s Baltic Sea region, describing it as an equivalent response to NATO’s military buildup near its borders.The Russian military has reportedly stationed anti-shipping missiles in the nation’s westernmost Kaliningrad exclave, and a senior lawmaker also has announced the deployment of other missile systems.
The U.S. State Department and NATO have voiced concern, describing the Russian move as destabilizing.Let me clarify something you may have missed here: anti-ship missiles. This goes right along with China’s investment in anti-ship missiles and their building up manmade islands in the South China Sea and fortifying them with military weaponry. And needless to say, we know the Chinese missiles are specifically made for one thing: defeat of U.S. carriers.
Now, does Barack Obama really want to lecture anyone on national security and foreign policy? And where’s the liberal progressive media on this subject? No doubt this is all the fault of the racist, sexist, phobia-driven alt-right. That’s how the left responds to their failures, by calling others names.
You know what? Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Hasan Rouhani and Kim Jung Un must just be laughing their collective butts off. Here we have a bunch of chuckleheads mad because they lost the election and instead of assessing their policy failures, they’re playing a silly game of temper tantrums and name calling. All throughout these past eight years, we’ve seen Russia, Iran, China and North Korea, along with the global Islamic jihad, make huge strides during the presidency of Obama. And all the media can do is try and link President-elect Donald Trump to Russia. Look, if I were Putin, I would want four more years of Obama…which was exactly what Hillary Clinton would have been. And it was Hillary Clinton who presented the yellow toy box with the red button to Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov.
Thanks to Barack Obama, Trump will inherit a very dangerous world and as I’ve assessed, our enemies are making all their moves knowing Obama will not be responding. Donald Trump will have to contend with an enemy that’s been given the advantage, the initiative. And the reality of the current global security situation will have a tremendous effect on Trump’s policies — not campaign rhetoric, which was the prism through which Obama assessed the world.
It’s imperative that we restore our military deterrent capability and capacity, quickly. We’re seeing the arraying preparations for something, and it does not bode well for the free world, as this new axis forms. Just as with Germany prior to World War II in the Spanish Civil War, Russia is testing its new capabilities in Syria and Ukraine. The folks in Poland remember what came later…and do not forget, Kaliningrad borders the Baltic States and Poland. And, sadly, Japan finds itself in a reversal of roles, from their maritime military buildup in World War II. Now, they’re watching China do the same, allied with Russia — as Japan was allied with Germany.
See, strategic vision is not about seeing the world as it is before you, but rather seeing what lies ahead. Strategic vision is about knowing history and seeking out its trends. And it is about chess, not checkers. And once you have a strategic vision, you can properly develop operational and tactical plans. We have suffered for the past eight years under an individual who focused on a fundamental transformation, not a strategic vision, for our economic and national security future. The restoration of our American military respect and presence is going to be tough, because we must do this while we are engaged in a fight against two types of adversaries — state and non-state belligerent actors.
The two most important categories of administration appointments for President-elect Trump will be his economic and national security team. And my advice is to stop visiting the NY Times, giving any attention to the whining tantrums of the progressive socialist left, and worrying about Broadway actors. Obama has left Trump with a crap sandwich, and he needs to throw that lunch box in the face of the left.
The best remedy and revenge against the left is success, and embarrassing Obama by evidencing how weak and incompetent he was in his policy failures. And wipe that smirk off the face of that former KGB Colonel, Vladimir Putin.
