The negotiation of the terms for President Obama to surrender the credibility and honor of the United States on the world stage while giving control over the Middle East over to Iran hit a few snags that likely nobody from the White House expected thus never saw coming. President Obama knew he had legitimacy problems concerning his supposed Iran policy, so he had delegated misleading Saudi Arabian and Israeli leadership to John Kerry who did his master’s bidding in grand style. He informed the Saudis that the American deal with Iran would only release some minor funds frozen by the sanctions. That was a mild rebuke compared to what Secretary of State Kerry unloaded on Prime Minister Netanyahu and the entirety of the Israeli people when Secretary Kerry not only gave the same song and dance about the deal with Iran as he told the Saudis but there was far more damage to be done. Kerry publically instructed, schooled one might say, Prime Minister Netanyahu that Israel had, for its own good, find and do whatever was required to make a peace and establish the Palestinian State. He further told all that much of what Jews and Israelis believe is their ancestral homelands does not belong to them and if the Israeli government failed at this task they and the Israeli people should expect a third intifada and for the whole of the world to turn their backs on Israel. The reason for this was that Israelis have become too wealthy to know what is good for them and that if his instructions went unheeded then the Europeans would take their wealth from them. Where the choice of words used by the erudite secretary Kerry may have been different, this was the gist of his threats.
On a different slant but in the same arena, the leader who saved the world from surrendering to Iran and giving them their blessings through the P5+1 negotiations to continue their nuclear pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and an inevitable war using those same said nuclear weapons was French President Francois Hollande who vetoed the entire agreement which had been crafted mostly by Iran and agreed upon by Secretary Kerry and European Union Foreign Policy Chief the Lady Catherine Ashton. For all intents and purposes and as far as we here at BTC are concerned, the new leadership of the free world now rests with French President Hollande with strong backing and voice of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. It remains to be seen whether any other leaders will take a principled stand against the treachery and perfidy of the Obama-Kerry foreign policy which appears to be in the final stages of dismantling every single agreement, friendship, obligation or honorable stand which the United States had proudly stood for until President Obama came and has made and will continue to make good on his promise to fundamentally transform the United States. He has taken a once proud, dependable and honorable nation and dragged it through the mud of disgrace kicking it into the gutter among the other nations who are known for their contempt of truth, decency, respect of allies, actions in the interest of justice and keeping one’s word as a treasured and delicate promise. Whether the United States will be able to pull herself back up and onto the path she had trod since her birth will remain to be seen. The deficit she will trudge on carrying as a ball and chain is the now known truth that any election for President of the United States is capable of placing another disgrace in the White House who will treat the honor of the nation they have been elected to lead as a casual and trivial matter to be discarded and shredded at one’s own whim and without regard for the aftereffects such will have on the nation and her people.
We had predicted that even knowing of the disaster that Obamacare could become that the real subject of the last Presidential election was foreign policy. No matter the ramifications and fallout from Obamacare, that can be rectified and does not poison the name of the United States. No matter the economic upheaval which awaits the dollar as soon as interest rates rise even the slightest, that too can be overcome though doing so will cause pain and distress. The damage to the United States’ good name and the trust gained through years of honorable relations and promises and treaties kept will not be regained anywhere near as quickly as any of the other difficulties that will face the United States when the full ramifications of having a President Obama will have caused. The truly sad truth is that with Obamacare and the economic damage done by President Obama the United States bears the brunt of the pain but the disastrous destruction of the United States reputation and trustworthiness on the world stage will allow for damages which will reach far beyond the borders of the United States and may lead to catastrophes which could result in millions of people outside of the United States paying the ultimate price in a world with no United States as a trusted friend and feared enemy. Thanks to the treachery in Geneva and future treachery which is about to reconvene in the near future, the United States has dishonored her commitments and thrown her friends under the ever growing bus where President Obama tosses anything for which he has no use or liking. It is a shame that the United States is included on that list. The question sitting now before the Congress is whether they see the need to take over the controls in determining foreign policy by passing legislation rectifying the treacheries committed by President Obama and then overriding his veto stating to the world that even the President of the United States is not all-powerful and even his extravagances can be restrained by a responsible Congress. Will Congress act or will they shrink before such a daunting but necessary challenge?
