(Obama shakes hands with fellow Muslim dictator and terrorist supporter, Khadafi.)
Obviously Obama and Khadafi do have a lot in common. Both have Marxist and Muslim affiliations, both support and aid terrorists... and both were born in Africa. Still Obama's chummy meet and greet with Khadafi has saddened and angered many of the family members of the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing.
WASHINGTON - President Obama and Libyan dictator Moammar Khadafy shook hands Thursday, infuriating families of victims in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 by Libyan intelligence agents.
The grip-and-grin was caught on camera during the G-8 summit of world leaders in Italy. Khadafy was there as head of the African Union.
The encounter came as families who lost loved ones aboard the doomed plane met with officials in Washington and the British Consulate in Manhattan to protest the potential release of the lone terrorist convicted in the bombing.
"This thing with Obama happened on the same day that we spilled our guts to his own administration that this killer should not be released! I'm disgusted and disappointed. Obama sent the wrong message," said Stephanie Bernstein, 58, of Bethesda, Md., who lost her husband, Michael, 36, a lawyer who hunted Nazis for the Justice Department.
"It will be a real horror show now if they release Megrahi," added Flynn, who broke down in a conversation with the Daily News. Both Bernstein and Flynn voted for Obama.
Shortly before the handshake, White House National Security Council member Denis McDonough said Obama would greet any leader who approached him.
"I don't think he's given much consideration to whose hand he'll shake or whose hand he'll not shake," McDonough said.
Oh I'm sure Obama gave plenty of consideration to the subject, and had say the interim President of Honduras shown up, the odds would weigh heavily against him getting a handshake.
But that's par for the course. And the handshake with Khadafi is not even the worst Obama photo op to come out of the G-8 summit, there was this gem that demonstrated how Obama is working to bring back dignity to the Presidency, something his supporters kept complaining was lacking under Bush.
The media has discovered the photo and is busy spinning things Obama's way, but it's not the only such incident involving Obama at the G-8 summit. It's not particularly important in and of itself, just another demonstration of how low the Trash in Chief is dragging America.
So, Obama came to the summit. His freeloading family got another free trip at taxpayer expense, all dressed up in black as if they were headed to a funeral, and absolutely nothing was accomplished, as Obama's global warming plan fell apart when India and China refused to trash their economies to accommodate environmentalist zealots and eco-profiteers.
Another Obama trip. Wasted.
But speaking of environmental zealots, Zombie Time and Front Page Magazine have a shocking look at the radical face of Obama's new Science Advisor, read environmental guru, John Holdren. It's one of those things that demonstrates how thin a line there is between Nazi eugenicsm and radical Environmentalism,
There are the forced abortions (something I don't think that's what the Pro-Choice movement expected from Obama)
Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.
Good news folks. The new Constitution will be Made in China.
One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it
I don't think the Pro-Choice movement will be fond of that one either. Or this...
"Involuntary fertility control
A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.
The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births. "
And then Holdren embraces his Inner Nazi Bureaucrat
Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.
And in 2009, Obama nominated Dr. Mengele as his Science Advisor. Reading quotes like this can't help but remind one of the feasibility discussions and memos of the Final Solution.
In his book Holdren asks,
In today's world, however, the number of children in a family is a matter of profound public concern. The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?
Why indeed not? It's not as if we're entitled to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That's the sort of thinking that gets you sent to the Sterilization Camps.
The Confederate Yankee has more commentary and summation, for those who don't want to read through the whole thing. Holdren also called for a totalitarian world state and world police, and the whole Fascist goody basket of swastika flavored treats.
Suffice it to say this is about as close to Nazism in America as any Presidential advisor has gotten in a long time. Bush cabinet members such as Gonzalez were burned in effigy for far more views and painted as monsters. Meanwhile the media insists on painting Holdren as a brilliant scientist. A brilliant scientist who has views translated from the original German.
Ir's ironic that the Washington Post can run headlines such as "In Honduras, One-Sided News of Crisis", when in fact it's the US media that operates the way the Iraqi Minister of Information did, spewing back the same propaganda over and over again, regardless of the reality of the situation.
We truly have lived to see US news run on the standard of Saddam Hussein's Iraq with praise for the beloved leader Hussein, and hysterical smears and rants against his enemies. Which this week was Sarah Palin. I'm not even going to bother digging through the latest demented smears, which rely on using her daughter's ex-boyfriend as a top source.
Meanwhile in more Jihad aiding and abetting news, a Der Spiegel story on the German government's attempt to rescue the crew of a captured freighter from Somali pirates reveals how Obama's National Security Advisor James L Jones aborted the rescue, thereby aiding and abetting the Islamic pirates, and sabotaging an ally's attempt to stand up to them.
On April 25, Olaf Lindner, head of the GSG-9, practiced for the planned rescue mission with 200 elite team members aboard the US helicopter carrier Boxer. They were 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of Harardhere, out of sight of the pirates, and they had helicopters, reconnaissance drones and diving equipment at their disposal. "We're ready," Lindner cabled to Berlin.
The cancellation of the freighter rescue operation represents a heavy setback for German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, a Christian Democrat (CDU), and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, a Social Democrat (SPD). The two ministers were intent on ending this hostage crisis militarily, if at all possible, and they had the backing of Chancellor Merkel, who had asked for regular updates. Schäuble and Steinmeier, weary of the dollar diplomacy of the past few years, were eager to set an important international precedent -- to let the world know that the Germans are no longer willing to pay up when blackmailed by gangsters and terrorists, and that they are capable of a more forceful response.
Schäuble and State Secretary Hanning criticized the military officials for wavering too long. By then, the consensus of the first few days among government officials had fallen apart. Hanning, dissatisfied with the Bundeswehr's handling of the matter, turned to the Americans for help, and the Interior Ministry requested the use of the USS Boxer.
Senior officials at the Foreign and Defense Ministry were not enthusiastic about the idea. Defense Minister Jung's state secretary felt that the German ships were sufficient, and the Foreign Ministry was opposed to depending on the help of others. The diplomats feared that the Americans would insist on taking a more offensive approach against the pirates, but no one anticipated that they would, in fact, eventually take precisely the opposite position.
Before the German interior minister could give the order for the GSG-9 to carry out its mission, James Jones, the United States National Security Advisor, ended the operation with a call to the German government. The risk was too high for the US. "Boxer" was ordered back to Mombasa.
Uh huh. I just bet.
While the media is once again busy smearing Obama's main female opponent, in Afghanistan, Sharia has agreed to compromise by modifying a law that forced women to submit to marital rape, to force them to do household chores. I suppose we could speak out more, but Obama has just nominated a Science Advisor who proposed forcibly sterilizing women.
Who knew that by 2009, the Obama Administration would be giving the Taliban a run for their money in the area of feminism.
Meanwhile J Street is growing shrill over the Obama Administration's advocacy of ethnic cleansing for Jews in Israel. Jevsektsia Street's director Isaac Luria, gave his internet goon squad marching orders to attack Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi , the executive director of the Israel Project, for pointing out the Obama Administration's ethnic cleansing drive against Jews.
Isaac Luria laughably cites a quote from Doug Bloomfield, of the PA Prime Minister;
Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said this week that Jews would be welcome to live in the Palestinian state and enjoy the same rights Israeli Arabs enjoy in Israel.
Now considering that Christian Arabs, who at least are ethnic Arabs, have been running like hell out of PA controlled territories, to the point that they're now a tiny minority... the odds that Jews would enjoy equal rights is about the same as the rights Jews enjoyed in Nazi Germany.
This is the same PA which torched the Synagogues in Gaza after Israel withdrew. Whose newspapers repeatedly call for the murder of Jews. This is the same PA which is headed by a Holocaust denier.
Finally since there is no such thing as an Arab Muslim country where Jews enjoy equal rights, something Isaac Luria knows quite well, his vicious hate campaign against Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi is based on a blatantly false premise. Had Isaac J Luria been an American liberal, he might get a pass for being ignorant and deluded. However Isaac J Luria has spent enough time in Israel to know better. Certainly Jevsektsia Street head Jeremy Ben Ami knows better.
But if Isaac J Luria is convinced that Jews could live safely and equally under Palestinian rule, I recommend that he put his money where his mouth is by moving to Ramallah for a month, without any protection of journalistic credentials or embassy contacts. Otherwise he can shut the hell up.
Finally Yoram Ettinger closes with a brief op ed on Can Israel Afford to Concede the Mountain Ridges of Judea and Samaria (West Bank)?
Caroline Glick meanwhile delivers another solid article, Numbering the days of dictators
In the face of all of this, the Obama administration has been disturbingly timid. The White House's most consistent response to North Korea's belligerent moves has been to ignore them and hope North Korea decides to behave itself.
Matching their meekness toward Iran, the G-8 leaders responded to Pyongyang's most recent provocations with an announcement that they would like to become friends with Kim Jong Il. As Obama put it, "It's very important for the world community to speak to countries like Iran and North Korea and encourage them to take a path that does not result in a nuclear arms race in places like the Middle East."
OVER THE past several weeks, as the regimes in Pyongyang and Teheran have become ever more brazen in demonstrating their belligerent contempt for the West, the prevailing wisdom has argued that the West has no good options for containing or defeating them.
The traditional take on North Korea is that the world's leading missile and nuclear proliferator poses less of a burden to global stability than a post-regime North Korea filled with millions of starving people who have been cut off from the world for 60 years. By this thinking, the world is better off living with a psycho-state capable of fomenting a global nuclear war than caring for its victims.
That of course has been the theme lately from Obama's Jewish leftist supporters. AKA Learning to Live with a Nuclear Iran. A quote that should properly be treated as a Chamberlain paraphrase.
