Say what you will about the inept Jimmy Carter or the crony capitalist George Bush – but you never had to wonder about their patriotism and loyalty to America.
Apparently not the case with Barack Hussein Obama, our apologist President who appears to see America as just another unexceptional country in a world of similarly unexceptional countries.
Therefore I am deeply offended to read in the left-leaning New York Times that the White House has issued “detailed guidelines" on how to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the most dastardly attack on our nation – killing more people than were killed at Pearl Harbor.
From the New York Times …
“White House Issues Guides on Sept. 11 Observances”
“The White House has issued detailed guidelines to government officials on how to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, with instructions to honor the memory of those who died on American soil but also to recall that Al Qaeda and other extremist groups have since carried out attacks elsewhere in the world, from Mumbai to Manila.”
“The White House in recent days has quietly disseminated two sets of documents. One is framed for overseas allies and their citizens and was sent to American embassies and consulates around the globe. The other includes themes for Americans here and underscores the importance of national service and what the government has done to prevent another major attack in the United States. That single-page document was issued to all federal agencies, officials said.”
We are Americans and we speak with one voice when it comes to defending our country from our enemies, both foreign and domestic. We do not send two messages: we send one – We are America and we will destroy those who attack our nation and our citizens.
Apparently Obama wants to use this day of remembrance not to remember those who have fallen to a cowardly enemy – Islamic religious fanatics – but to ask us to think about what we can do for our malfeasant and malfunctioning government. Taking credit for keeping us safe from similar attacks – although he merely followed, and in some cases amplified, the policies of former President Bush. As if he did not have the will or the intelligence to mount a campaign against the foreign Jihadists.
Another effin “nuanced” message from the man who needs two TelePrompTers to deliver a three-paragraph speech …
“After weeks of internal debate, White House officials adopted the communications documents to shape public events and official statements, and they sought to strike a delicate balance between messages designed for these two very important but very different audiences on a day when the world’s attention will be focused on President Obama, his leadership team and his nation.”
Imagine the time, effort and money wasted on a “no brainer” message when the same manpower could be concentrated on governing – solving the pressing financial and employment issues facing the nature.
There should be no “delicate” balance for different audiences. The message should be clear, unequivocal and in a shocking statement: Fuck with America at your own risk – and the shit will rain down upon you head as the night follows the day. In fact, we will turn the night into day and collateral damage be damned.
Yes, the world’s attention will be focused on Barack Obama and his fellow travelers. And it will probably reinforce the world’s opinion that he is an ineffective, inefficient leader with no balls. A zero in an empty suit; devoid of core principles and an unwavering love of his country.
“The guidelines list what themes to underscore — and, just as important, what tone to set. Officials are instructed to memorialize those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and thank those in the military, law enforcement, intelligence or homeland security for their contributions since.”
Why is Obama choosing to thank our people when the Obama Justice Department is trying to put them in jail by criminalizing their activities during wartime? And why is Obama suggesting we thank homeland security – for what; missing bombs and diseased people at airports; feeling up grandmothers and young children. Reacting to a single threat by making everyone take off their shoes. Not targeting young Muslim men while everyone else is randomly inconvenienced. Kabuki theatre at its worst.
State Department mumbo jumbo?
“A chief goal of our communications is to present a positive, forward-looking narrative,” the foreign guidelines state.”
“Copies of the internal documents were provided to The New York Times by officials in several agencies involved in planning the anniversary commemorations. ‘The important theme is to show the world how much we realize that 9/11 — the attacks themselves and violent extremism writ large — is not ‘just about us,’ said one official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal White House planning.”
Excuse me! This was the day WE, America, was attacked. This IS about us. We own 9/11 and it is up to us to redress this insult to every citizen: man, woman and child.
The world is watching and listening what to what we do and say …
“Some senior Obama administration leaders had advocated a lengthy program of speeches and events to mark the anniversary, but the final decision was for lower-key appearances by Mr. Obama and other senior leaders only on the days leading up to the anniversary and on Sept. 11 itself.”
“Mr. Obama in his weekly address on Saturday said that this year’s anniversary will be one of ‘service and remembrance.’”
“’We need to make sure we’re speaking to a very broad set of audiences who will be affected by the anniversary,’ Benjamin J. Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, said in a telephone interview on Friday.”
We should loudly thank our allies – the real ones and not the pretend ones like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. We tell them will stand together: the United States and those who hold our values. And if it pisses off the Muslims who hate our nation and who have sworn to kill us – eff them!
“That may be, but some American counterterrorism and intelligence officials are complaining that the White House missed out on tying together the 10th anniversary with recently announced strategies to combat terrorism and violent extremism into a more coherent, longer-term plan. ‘They don’t do that kind of long-term planning,’ said a senior counterterrorism official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid disciplinary measures from the White House. Mr. Rhodes rejected that criticism, saying these themes have threaded through many of Mr. Obama’s speeches in recent months.”
This is a false criticism as the “Appeaser-in-Chief” is a lazy bastard who has no clue to what needs to be done and has a record of leaving the heavy lifting to others. Others who will be thrown under the bus if their efforts fail. Only to be replaced by other fellow travelers who mouth the party line.
The wrong message …
“One significant new theme is in both sets of documents: Government officials are to warn that Americans must be prepared for another attack — and must, in response, be resilient in recovering from the loss.”
“’Resilience takes many forms, including the dedication and courage to move forward,’ according to the guidelines for foreign audiences. ‘While we must never forget those who we lost, we must do more than simply remember them —we must sustain our resilience and remain united to prevent new attacks and new victims.’”
NO! We should do more than remember our fallen citizens, we should retaliate in such a dramatic and drastic manner that these crazy Jihadist realize that they are jeopardizing more than their martyred life – they are jeopardizing their family, friends and the leaders of their movement. And if those surrounding these religious crazies do not take action to prevent a strike against the United States, they too will suffer the consequences.
Obama’s “unexceptionalist” streak leaks out …
“At the same time, Obama administration officials caution that public commemorations here should not cast the United States as the sole victim of terrorism, an argument underscored by killings and maimings from extremist attacks overseas.”
We are not commemorating the world’s victims of terror, we are commemorating the loss of American citizens and the others who happened to be on America soil.
The anti-America bastards in our government can’t help but take a political cheap shot on this hallowed day …
“Some senior administration officials involved in the discussions noted that the tone set on this Sept. 11 should be shaped by a recognition that the outpouring of worldwide support for the United States in the weeks after the attacks turned to anger at some American policies adopted in the name of fighting terror — on detention, on interrogation, and the decision to invade Iraq.”
Yes, let’s praise Saudi Arabia and Pakistan …
“So the guidelines aimed at foreign audiences also call on American officials to praise overseas partners and their citizens, who have joined the worldwide effort to combat violent extremism.”
The Saudis who financed such global excursions into Whabbist extremism in return for the terrorist not overthrowing their corrupt Kingdom. And the Pakistanis who harbored bin Laden while taking billions of our dollars for their phony war on terror.
“As we commemorate the citizens of over 90 countries who perished in the 9/11 attacks, we honor all victims of terrorism, in every nation around the world,” the overseas guidelines state. “We honor and celebrate the resilience of individuals, families, and communities on every continent, whether in New York or Nairobi, Bali or Belfast, Mumbai or Manila, or Lahore or London.”
Bullshit – on this day, we honor OUR dead and OUR people who are making personal sacrifices to keep us safe. And you notice that the there was no mention of Israel who faces terror every day in the week from the same Muslim Jihadists. Whose ass is the Administration trying to kiss at the expense of our dead?
The President’s big mouth and self-aggrandizement has already done the damage …
“The death of Osama bin Laden was viewed as reason for officials to ‘minimize references to Al Qaeda.’ While terrorists affiliated with Bin Laden’s network ‘still have the ability to inflict harm,’ the guidelines say, officials are to make the point that “Al Qaeda and its adherents have become increasingly irrelevant.”
Sad to say, it is OUR president Barack Obama who has become irrelevant. Our enemies still want to kill us and will move forward with their plans – regardless of how the messages are nuanced.
Whoops – the Appeaser-in-Chief will invade Libya, but won’t lift a finger against the mass murderer in Syria; another known center for global terror?
“The guidelines say the absence of Al Qaeda playing any significant role in the ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings against longtime autocrats in the Middle East and North Africa should be cited as evidence that Bin Laden’s organization ‘represents the past,’ while peaceful street protesters in Egypt and Tunisia ‘represent the future.’ Left unsaid was that many of the deposed leaders were close American allies and partners in counterterrorism operations.”
Please unite to save my presidency …
“The domestic guidelines also ask something of Americans that has been lacking in Washington: ‘We will also draw on the spirit of unity that prevailed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.’”
I agree. We need to unify and throw the present socialist/communist leadership out of office and return America to the strong, exceptional country it is. No more cowardly presidents and congressional representatives who are more afraid of the gay movement than they are of the Jihadists willing to kill us.
Bottom line …
It’s simple. We need to take back our government by electing constitutional conservatives and purging those who hate our nation and its citizens from our government. To eliminate those who openly pander to foreign sovereign governments and illegal aliens at the expense and detriment of our own people.
THE ANSWER IS 1911
