Obama: The man behind today’s Middle East madness

Considering my present condition (see the previous post), I thought I would quickly put up a link to an excellent essay by Doug Ross detailing how the present instability in the Middle East is all tied to Barack Obama, both during his first two presidential terms as well as his third term manipulating Joe Biden from behind the scenes.

The most telling quote is this, comparing how things changed before, during, and after Donald Trump’s term:

The stunning populist victory of Donald Trump meant a quick demise for many of Obama’s pro-terror policies. It also resulted in the destruction of the ISIS scourge, another terror spawn of Obama’s people and policies. Trump’s pragmatic view of Iran resulted in a demolition of Obama’s nuclear deal as well as termination of various Palestinian terror funding initiatives. Trump’s Abraham Accords remain one of the most dramatic Middle East peace agreements in modern history.

And They’re Back! The instant Trump departed the presidency in 2021, the ostensible Biden administration — led by cadres of Obama acolytes — reactivated funding for Islamist terrorism.

…As part of Barack Obama’s de facto third term, Iran received yet another infusion of cash less as recently as November of 2023. As Majid Rafizadeh put it: “Who needs the Nobel Peace Prize when you can have the Biden War Prize? That’s right, the Biden administration announced last week that it plans to give the Iranian regime another $10 billion in unfrozen assets from Oman.”

The funds are apparently as a small token of appreciation for helping to orchestrate a war in the Middle East and targeting U.S. troops in the region at least 56 times, wounding at least 56 U.S. servicemen, many of whom suffered traumatic brain injuries—in just one month! Where does everyone sign up

Ross concludes by asking what is the reason behind Obama’s obsession in funding this terrorism. The shadow of bigotry and anti-Semitism lurks heavily over everything.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    For years the minorities complained they were not properly represented in the US military.

    Now they claim they are the majority in the US military and yet they are willing to back the left who is more than willing to fund and arm our enemies and then send them into harms way after they do.

    The left is schizophrenic.

    I have heard that Biden has cut funding and delayed the construction of several new naval ship we have been waiting for. Supposedly the money has been moved over to fund the immigrant situation. To pay them for getting here illegally.

    “The left is schizophrenic.”

    “And that is a military psyops strategy of disruption, misdirection, misinformation, chaos and violence for political gain and domination purposes. We are currently right now in a new civil war in other words.”

    The radical Lefts schizophrenia I.E. controlled Democrat party is a clear strategy.

    “Validation” of the superiority of their jaw-jaw, War is Never the Answer* approach, that they seek to wave in the faces of the world to compel its deference to them in all areas.

    So the conspiracy theories are true going back decades that America through primarily the CIA has been destabilizing regions and over throwing leaders of foreign countries elected by their people. I never dreamed Ron Paul would be one of the saner sounding voices in DC.

    Hey, don’t call me a cynic but I’m starting to think these blood drinking, moloch worshipping pedophiles who run our government might not have our best interests in mind.
