Barack Obama has taken his fair share of parting shots at America, at decency, and sided with what is wrong as opposed to what is right. After spitting in the eye of every Jew on the planet for the last 30 plus days, Obama has now commuted the sentences of nearly 1400 criminals.
The latest, Bradley Manning, the Army Specialist that divulged classified information to Wikileaks, and thus put people’s lives at risk, had his sentence commuted by none other than Barack Obama himself. This is a man (Manning), who is mentally ill and was able to get us, the American taxpayers, to pay for his hormone therapy to turn himself into a woman. Of course, he never can be one because you cannot alter DNA, but that is for another discussion (or maybe not because frankly, it’s a gross thing to think about).
What we witnessed today in commuting the sentence of a man who compromised US Intelligence, is just further proof of a pattern with this outgoing President. Barack Obama, since day one in office, has stood on the side of immorality. He sides with terrorists by releasing them from prison only to see them return to the battlefield and hurt innocent people. Obama pushed forward the homosexual agenda, by misusing his position of power to promote gay marriage.
This lame duck President decided to negotiate a nuclear agreement with Iran, and kept Israel in the dark for years while the negotiating went on behind their backs. Again, a country who swore to “wipe Israel off the map” he decided to negotiate with! Of course the pinnacle of his antisemitism was the snub in the UN last month. This President for his entire two terms in office has thrown law enforcement under the bus, by meddling in local law enforcement’s work at protecting the public, by painting them as blood thirsty, racist animals.
Of course, we cannot forget that this President demonstrated zero leadership in the wake of the intelligence debacle that was Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Her level of violation of our national security laws was literally unprecedented in terms of her complete and utter stupidity in handling classified information. Yet, not one time did this President use his office to bring down the full force of the law against her. You would think that given her being a former rival, he could cut ties, but I guess the bond of Democrats supersedes all areas of decency and morality.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Bradley Manning is going to get out of jail in just a little over 3 months from now, after divulging 270,000 classified and unclassified documents to Wikileaks. Take a look at the following quote from a news article regarding this travesty of justice.
In a statement posted on the White House’s website, the Administration states that “we must remember that clemency is an extraordinary remedy, granted only after the President has concluded that a particular individual has demonstrated a readiness to make use of his or her second chance.”
Let me get this straight. So the President thinks that someone who put on our nation’s uniform, swore an oath to defend her, even unto the death, and then summarily turned his back on everything he promised, divulged our nation’s secrets, and most likely put other servicemen and servicewomen, along with various other intelligence assets around the world in mortal danger, should get a second chance? Funny, because usually a traitor, which Manning absolutely is, does not get a second chance. How he’s alive today is another testament that we as a nation have lost our backbone when it comes to dishing out punishment for violating the nation’s trust.
However, that is what this President does. He is without honor. He is without decency. He is the most un-American President in US History, and no I’m not harking back to the birther argument by saying that. Instead of standing up for the rule of law, instead of standing up for what is the natural and moral order of things in a civil society, instead of standing up and should to shoulder with our ally Israel, instead of backing our nation’s military by properly and rightfully letting traitors rot in prison for their full term, he chooses to side with the opposite. In the simplest of explanations, he sides with evil, and bear in mind, America elected him twice. What does that say about our nation?
In three days time, Barack Obama will vacate the White House, and a new President will take his place. From this blogger’s point of view, he cannot leave soon enough. Every moment that he continues to stay in that honorable house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he soils the sanctity of the Office of President of the United States of America. Unfortunately, he has chosen to take up residence in Washington DC after he leaves office, so that he can continue his legacy of interference and general being a pain in the neck. My greatest hope is that America will ignore this man once he is out of office, and focus on trying to piece back together this great nation. I hope that this is a shared hope by all my fellow Americans.
Donald Trump is not a saint, and I resent members of the evangelical community that try to paint him as such. However, I believe that Donald Trump loves America. I believe that he respects the Oval Office, and I believe him when he says that this country is an absolute disaster. I am hopeful that he will respect the rule of law, and work to make this country great again for all Americans. Let’s pray for our incoming President-elect that he will listen to the voice of G-d and do what He wills. That he will choose to side with what is right.
