Americans that heard or read Obama’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly should not let him get away with the way he talked about our country in his disgraceful and dishonorable speech. There is no other way you can put it. You have never heard of any other American president talking in such away as he did. In his opening comments he said, "For those who question the character and cause of my nation, I ask you to look at the concrete actions we have taken in just nine months." What concrete actions? Then he proceeded to spout off those "concrete actions," such as prohibiting torture -- as if to suggest that prior to his ascension to president, torture had been official U.S. policy. Who is he kidding? It is like he is saying in a roundabout way, down with America. Why is he always in his speeches apologizing for America? When is he or his wife every going to say anything good about America?
Take notice that he didn't say, "For those who question America's character, I want to mention to you our record of international compassion, kindness, goodwill, peacemaking and peacekeeping, liberating countries from cruel tyrants, upholding democracy throughout the world, and leading the world in industrial and scientific improvements and the very advancement of civilization." Never once did he say anything about the billions and billions of “United States Dollars” that was given to hurting and undeveloped countries. Not once did he say whenever there is a major world disaster the United States is always there with over whelming man power and aid. Did he say anything like that? “NO” Instead, he made it very clear that he shares the view of the world's liberals, socialist, and communist critics that America has acted "to do what the United States wants to do without regarding or considering the interests of others," He said that the American people were "arrogant" and "sometimes dismissive." In other words, he is saying, that the we are bigheaded, arrogant, and high and mighty. Is this what we want from the man that was elected to the highest office in our land? Is this who was voted for and elected to be the leader of the free world?
For the people that still does not believe that Obama is not particularly fond of this country’s founding values, freedom and our traditions, you can at least concede that Obama has contempt for American’s outstanding and extraordinary excellence and prefers that this nation not be the world's sole superpower? He has said it and has showed it in his actions. Or that he believes Americans possess an large amount of the world's wealth, which is morally wrong and he is also not especially protective of America's national sovereignty? We can see all this by the way he speaks and by his actions. Once again this is the man that was elected to the highest office in this land.
Obama isn't content merely engaging in a scheme to totally redistribute the income and wealth of Americans internally (to the tune of some $1 trillion from the top 30 percent of income earners to the lower 70 percent through his proposals on taxes, health care and the environment, according to the Tax Foundation). He also believes Americans should be compelled to redistribute their resources to the world's poor, as well. This is who was elected as our president. Do you remember when Obama said the following in Chicago on Oct. 2, 2007? "In the 21st century, progress must mean more than a vote at the ballot box; it must mean freedom from fear and freedom from want. We cannot stand for the freedom of anarchy. Nor can we support the globalization of the empty stomach. We need new approaches to help people to help themselves. The United Nations has embraced the Millennium Development Goals, which aim to cut extreme poverty in half by 2015. When I'm president, they will be America's goals. The Bush administration tried to keep the U.N. from proclaiming these goals; the Obama administration will double foreign assistance to $50 billion to lead the world to achieve them. In the 21st century, we cannot stand up before the world and say that there's one set of rules for America and another for everyone else."
True to his word, though it was hardly reported in the news, Obama made this statement in his U.N. speech: "We have fully embraced the Millennium Development Goals." I'm not sure where he got the authority to make that one-sided statement, but needless to say he made it. I guess now since he is president, he thinks he can do what he wants and say what he wants instead of having to deal with the legislative process. Obama and his czars rule. Take a look at why the Bush administration opposed the harmless sounding "Millennium Development Goals"?
These goals by the united nations has a multi pronged assault on America's national sovereignty? It also commits contributing nations to be bound by the International Criminal Court treaty; (you would be tried in a world court of laws not ours) support regional disarmament measures for small arms and light weapons; (in others words we would have no second rights amendment. You would not be allowed to own a gun.) and press for the full execution of the Convention on Biological Diversity, which Wikipedia describes as "an international legally binding treaty" that includes among its goals a "fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from genetic resources," the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, described as "an international bill of rights for women," and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which purports to be a "legally binding international instrument" that gives children the right to express their own opinions "freely in all matters affecting the child" and requires those opinions be given "due weight." The Millennium Declaration also affirms the U.N. as "the indispensable common house of the entire human family, through which we will seek to realize our universal aspirations for peace, cooperation and development." Where does the family unit come in this goal.
Without a doubt we are becoming less and less a free nation because under Obama, "We Are the World."
