Our Naked Emperor

Pages: 1 2

When the vain and delusional emperor walked naked through the streets of his capital to show off his new clothes, so light and so finely woven that they could not be seen or felt, it was only an innocent little child, ingénue, who told the world that the emperor was naked.  The rest went along with the charade, and collaborated with the emperor and his dishonest clothiers in order to avoid imperial ire.

Recent events and disclosures at the highest levels of our government demonstrate that our own rulers, like the naked emperor, have through folly and dishonesty exposed themselves as “useful idiots” or worse, liars and functionaries whose loyalties may well be to other than the United States.

On April 10, Johnnie Carson, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, stated that “religion is not driving extremist violence” in Nigeria.  This pronouncement was made one day after Boko Haram,  the uber-violent Muslim jihadist Nigerian terrorists, bombed a church killing 39 Christians.

Carson told us an unconscionable and transparent lie.  In addition to stating an obvious falsehood, given the Boko Haram’s overt and unabashed self-definition as a brutally violent Muslim terrorist organization which condemns all things non-Muslim as “Haram” (prohibited), Carson also contradicted earlier State Department assessments, [i]  all of which argue that Nigeria’s Islamic religious terrorist violence was so much a concern that the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) recommended back in 2002 that Nigeria be placed on the United States watch list.

What impelled Mr. Carson to lie such that anyone anywhere who does not live under a rock can see that he is lying?  Joel Mowbray’s Dangerous Diplomacy  provides a clue.  Mowbray documents how the Saudi royal family has over the past decades insinuated itself into our State Department by promising State Department officials serving in the Arab world generous sinecures when they have retired from their official duties, as long as they represent Saudi interests to the US government while serving in the State Department.  These Saudi long-range bribes render our officials servants of the Saudi government, representing Saudi interests to our government instead of the other way around.[ii]

But the problem runs deeper than one State Department functionary whose integrity may have been compromised by Muslim forces that want him to lie on behalf of Islamic jihadist terrorists.  His boss is Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State.  She has been silent regarding his transparent lie.  Is Saudi penetration so deep that even the Secretary of State cannot publicly correct the errors of a State Department employee; and is it only the Saudis?

Very distressingly, it may be more than the State Department alone that is in question here.  President Obama and the State Department have been unwilling to rule out  aid to Hamas despite the fact that that very same State Department has classified Hamas as a terrorist organization, and American law prohibits US financial aid to terrorist organizations.  As Trudy Rubin observed last year in a Washington Post article:

“The most ominous interpretation of the mush coming from the State Department (regarding aid to Hamas) is that the administration is so rudderless, unprincipled and desperate to avoid a clear defeat in its efforts to foist a “peace agreement” on the parties that it would go so far as to continue to do business with the PA, despite (the PA’s) taking on a partner that has killed Americans, seeks Israel’s destruction and, from behind the skirts of women and the cribs of children, has conducted a missile bombardment of Israel.”

The State Department’s rudderless, unprincipled pronouncements contradict its own policy denying aid to any terrorist organization.

And in case one might think that Hamas’ terrorist history is a function only of its violent and psychotic leaders, while the downtrodden rank-and-file of Gazan Arabs are just tagging along for the charitable gifts they receive from Hamas leadership, one need only note the recent Commentary Magazine article on the Palestinian Shikaki organization’s poll of Gazan and West Bank Arabs.  This poll shows that Hamas has lost considerable support of its followers in the Gaza Strip due in part to its not being aggressive enough in its terrorism against Israel.

The poll’s findings indicate a significant decline in the popularity of Hamas in the Gaza Strip and a decrease in its constituency’s positive evaluation of its government compared to previous polls.  Shikaki suggests that this may be due to Hamas’ behavior, standing on the sideline, during Gaza’s rocket war with Israel (while other Gazan terror groups carried out numerous rocket attacks).  Ironically, several Hamas leaders, especially Isma’il Haniyeh, enjoy in the West Bank a popularity that rivals President Abbas.  Apparently it is not just the Gazan Arabs who want to see Jews murdered.

Significant percentages of Gazan Arabs, not the leaders, nor even the leaders’ acolytes, just the plain old day-to-day Arabs on the street, really want Hamas and other terror groups to just keep on bombing Israel, just keep on killing Jews.  Yet the State Department and our President are unclear as to whether or not it is a good idea for the USA to continue to provide Hamas with hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars, many of which will be rerouted to support Hamas’ terrorist efforts.

    Thanks for the great article David!
    Who's the bigger liar and traitor to the U.S., Secretary Clinton or Obama?
    We are told the War on Terror is over. Then apparently all the drones, TSA checkpoints,
    CIA internal spying thru the smart grid, nearly a billion rounds of 40 caliber hollow points is all for
    American citizens. Not only is the emperor not wearing any cloths, the U.S. is rapidly becoming
    The only one talking about it seems to be Alex Jones. Resist the NWO, resist the Machine, resist the Matrix.

    There is a malevolence to the Obama administration that is palpable. Hillary, Soros, and Obama gathered together the most evil people in politics and are dedicated to destroying this country, and letting the Muslims destroy Israel. Obama has dropped our guard and strangled our energy industry. hillary has worked tirelessly to facilitate the goals of the Islamists. How else can this be interpreted? These people want the US to cease to exist as a super power or a democratic republic.

    There is a good chance there won't be an election in November if Obama feels he can't win. We are facing some incredibly perilous times.

    Welcome to Obama's Grave New World

    • MikeWood

      Sounds alarmist, truebearing, but I think you're right. Obama is like Mugabe.

      • Jon_Adams

        Very much like Mugabe. All you have to do is look at Obama's Islamist cousin Odinga who he supported in Kenya and the rioting and killings that took place when he lost the election. Jerome Coursi revealed Obama's emails that showed he not only supported the killings and rioting but suggested and promoted it.

      • truebearing

        You're right. it does sound alarmist, but I also intend it to be alarmist. I want people to be aware of how ugly this is or could get.
        Anyone who has spent any time at all following Obama's history, or looking at his associates and friends, or looking at his words, actions, and agenda, has to conclude that his goal is not to facilitate American success, capitalism, Christianity, or individual freedom, but to destroy it. He is the face of a malicious, power obsessed group of Leftists who are rapacious for power and intolerant of any dissent. If they succeed we will see just how ruthless the American Left really is.

    • Jon_Adams

      It seems that the primary criterion for being part of the Obama administration is that you want to destroy America.

      • truebearing

        They want to destroy the underpinnings of America: its morality, Christianity, the constitution, capitalism, individualism, private property, representative government. The environmental Left wants to go even further. They want to de-industrialize America, impose draconian population control, and create situational eugenics where people die from denied health care, hardships caused by a lack of fuel, shortages of food, not to mention civil strife. Many of these radicals are true sociopaths with extremely radical, deranged beliefs and no ethics whatsoever.

        We're playing for all of the marbles now. This is no time to pull punches.

      • David, Thailand

        America is strong and can absorb the effects of an Obama, even if he steals a second term.

        What will bring America to her knees is not Obama, but the type of people that would want someone like him as their President.

  • StephenD

    Excellent article sir! Will Romney have the nuggets to point this out? I don't understand the "kid glove" approach at all. These people cost lives. Deal with them accordingly. Hillary, Barak; both Alinsky zealots, are fundamentally anti-American. Point it out on the campaign trail! Shout it to the TV Cameras! Let them be exposed to the light…still the only cure for darkness.

    Oh yeah, you hit the nail on Medusa's head.
    It's all about the Saudi's.
    Zbigniew Brzezinski trains Al -Quaeda (Saudi Wahabi) to kill the Russians in Afganistan.
    9/11, Al-Quaeda terrorists destroy twin towers, etc.
    9/12, Bin Laden's family flown out of the US, when no one else is allowed to fly.
    After 9/11, over 2000 mosques are built in the US mostly by the Saudi's.
    All our patriotic men and women in the US sign up for the military to go fight Al-Quaeda in Afganistan, etc.
    Mass immigration of Muslims to US. Thereby destroying a, sense of National identity.
    September 2009, Muslim Day of Prayer (act of surrender) led by Obama prayed for "the soul of America."
    Willful Blindness by the media and outright promotion of Islam (HBO's Koran for Latinos")
    Outright contempt for Israel, our constitution. All paid for by Saudi petrodollars. Welcome to Saudi America.

    "Bzezinski "Stategic Vision" Pg 99 "But America's long-standing and generous support for Israel, derived more from a genuine sense of moral obligation and less from real stategic congruity, could become less reliable. The inclination to disengage from the region could grow as America declines, despite public support for Israel, while much of the world would probably blame Anerica for the regional upheaval.With the Arab masses politically aroused and more inclined to engage in prolonged violence("peoples war"), and Israel that could become internationally viewed- to cite Deputy PM Ehud Barak's ominous warning in 2010 as an "apartheid" state would have doubtful long term prospects."

    The revelations found in this piece are alarming. Four more years with Hil-ama would be a disaster for our nation. Time to throw the bums out.

    G-d, please, help America in November.
