The Obama administration is one the most, if not the most schizophrenic in American history.
I literally mean the dictionary definition of schizophrenic which is, "a state characterized by the coexistence of contradictory or incompatible elements."
In other words, the separation between our government's treatment of foreign policy; or more precisely, how other countries now view America, and domestic policy, or the way the average American citizen views their/our own government.
Take a look around the globe and name one country that any longer fears the potential wrath of the United States, except our once loyal ally, Israel.
Russia, under Putin, is on the move. He can't stand Obama, knows he's a girlie man and will continue to do whatever he wishes, regardless of our administrations feckless attempts to talk him into submission.
Russia supplies at least 25% of Europe's natural gas and there is currently no replacement for it. He's knows this, therefore they won't dare face him down. Putin obviously knows that any "tough" talk coming from Obama, or his minions, is just that – talk.
He has no fear of the United States and thus no fear of expanding his empire.
Another nation that has no fear of us is China. They are rapidly expanding their military and are now looking to expand its biggest military installation in the Spratly Islands into a fully formed artificial island, complete with airstrip and sea port, to better project its military strength in the South China Sea.
Despite protests from the Philippines and Vietnam that these waters are not Chinese, they are claiming them as such, daring anyone to stop them. China is also more closely aligning with Russia and that can't be good for anyone.
It's just a matter of when they decide to take helpless Taiwan. I'm sure the island nation knows its days are numbered. We certainly won't defend them.
Iran is back in the news with the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei saying negotiations over halting their nuclear program have ended. It's full steam ahead on the bomb production. He also reiterated Iran's wish to destroy America, saying: "The battle and jihad will only end when we get rid of the oppressors' front – with America at the head…" No threat there, eh?
The only real question is, if Israel decides to "pull the trigger" on Iran, will Obama threaten them (Israel)? I think it's pretty likely. Bullies only pick on the little guy.
I can't think of another period in our history where we have been less feared and less respected.
Now juxtapose our wimpy, "lead from behind" foreign policy to this administration's domestic policy.
The "secret police" at the NSA are monitoring and cataloging everyone.
The president's Homeland Security agency purposely sits on its hands as more and more illegals stream across the border, while the Justice Department aids in the release of thousands of illegal criminals. It's Cloward and Piven by the book – flood and overwhelm the system!
They release hardened terrorist killers in exchange for a traitor, yet leave a real American soldier to rot in a Mexican prison. Meanwhile, the Veterans Administration purposely kills off America's aging war heroes for the all mighty dollar.
All the while, the citizenry is powerless to stop any of it, as the republican "opposition" cowers in fear, thinking only of the next election. After the election, they will go back to cowering in fear of the girlie man. Maybe we could get Putin to run for the Senate.
We are living in historic times and history will not be kind. I don't know about you, but I don't want to look back and say we were the last true American generation.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
