When American Greatness Is Gone, And When NASA = ‘National Aeronautics and Sharia Administration’

July 6, 2010

Houston, we have a problem.  Our president is a chucklehead.

I can imagine Barry Hussein sending a helmeted American astronaut to Mecca, live on video feed, and hearing him say as he steps inside, “That’s one small step for man, one giant step for Sharia.”

Any student of history worth at least a penny should be readily able to see how our Failure-in-Chief Obama represents everything that is declining, failing, and unsustainable.

John F. Kennedy said the following involving the “foremost” mission of NASA:

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.

One could present a powerful argument that it was as a result of that speech that the United States dominated space and dominated space-age technology for the following forty-plus years.

But NASA just got new marching orders.  From the moon to Mars?  Nope.  From the moon to anywhere?  Nope.  From the moon to mediocrity?  You’re starting to get warm.

Now we have this from the Obama-appointee heading what USED to be the National Aeronautics and Space Administration:

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA’s orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

“When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview.

So Obama’s new mission for NASA is first, not to go into space, second not to go into space, and third not to go into space.

Instead he’s got the most technologically powerful agency on earth doing his useless politically-correct hopey-changey crap.

And only Barry Hussein is naive enough to actually believe that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda and the Taliban are going to quit hating us because we tore NASA apart and pissed it away.

What a legacy of failure from the worst failure to ever occupy the White House.  One can just look at the past few weeks to see what a useless turd Obama is.  I think of Vice President Joe Biden explaining how “Yes We Can” really meant “No We Can’t” on jobs:

there’s no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession.”

I think of Kennedy boldly saying “We choose to go to the moon!”  Do you realize how incredible that statement is?  Now we’ve got failures who don’t even have the balls to predict that we’re going to be able to restore jobs right here on earth – even with their “saved or created” bullcrap.

I see a 110-consecutive-year record of American manufacturing greatness pissed away under Obama.  And do I hear a bold determination to regain our lead?  “No We Can’t.”

OBAMA:  The US economy for a long period of time was the engine of world economic growth.  We were sucking in imports from all across the world financed by huge amounts of consumer debt.  Because of the financial crisis, but also because that debt was fundamentally unsustainable, the United States is not going to be able to serve in that same capacity to that same extent.

Obama’s tax-cheat treasury secretary Timothy Geithner chimed in:

“But I think the world understands now that world growth in the future can’t depend on the United States as much as it did in the past. So, for the world to grow together, we have to see more growth in the other major economies. Not just in the emerging markets, which are very strong now, in the United States.”

Because We Are All Socialists Now and our days of greatness in the world are now behind us in the age of Obama.

Mark Levin summarized Team Obama’s mindset:

Levin said this is a sign that the president wants to “rebalance the globe.”

“We selfish, piggish Americans, and all the rest of the people out there who we abuse in other countries, we’ve got to rebalance this ladies and gentlemen and he is going to rebalance this for us,” Levin said. “Do you know what that means in the mind of a Marxist? We become poorer so the others can become richer, and then we get equality.”

He later added, “You know what our enemies must be thinking? This is cool. We don’t even have to defeat them. We’ve got Obama. Obama’s on our side. He’ll defeat his own people for us. “

I think of Ronald Regan boldly predicting the downfall of an evil empire that covered a sixth of the globe and stretched over 11 time zones.  I think of Reagan boldly going to the Brandenburg Gate and saying, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”  And succeeding in bringing down that vast, evil empire without firing a shot.  Now we’ve got failures who don’t even have the balls to believe that we can even possibly secure our damn border from an illegal invasion:

“Even as we are committed to doing what’s necessary to secure our borders, even without passage of the new law, there are those who argue that we should not move forward with any other elements of reform until we have fully sealed our borders,” said Obama. “But our borders are just too vast for us to be able to solve the problem only with fences and border patrols. It won’t work.

“It’s just too hard.”  “It won’t work.”  “No We Can’t.”  “Wah.”

Now, I’m sure that at this point some moral idiot will eventually challenge me that Reagan urged Russia to tear down it’s wall while people like me are demanding that we build a new wall of our own.  I say “moral idiot” because such a person doesn’t have the moral reasoning capability to differentiate between the wall the Soviets built to prevent people from escaping and the wall we would build to prevent people from illegally invading our country.

Go into space where no human has ever gone before?  Defeat the largest and mightiest military power on earth?  Regain our lost jobs, or our lost manufacturing capability?  Secure borders that are being overrun every single day?  Hell.  We’re not even up to the task of plugging a damn hole anymore under this “God damn America” loser.

Well, under Obama, America believes that it is an arrogant, mediocre nation that has nothing to offer but our bared throats and our apologies for terrible things we did such as defeat Nazism and world communism.

But there are a people who now believe that they have what the world needs: global domination under Islam and totalitarian sharia law.

Obama has bowed down to these people in every way imaginable – including literally:

So by all means, let’s strip American greatness to the bone.  Let’s transform one of our greatest agencies into a politically-correct tool of ideological asininity.  Let’s give up on our economy and job creation.  Let’s abandon our global standing in the world.

Because No We Can’t.

Just Another Day in An America-Despising World

July 25, 2008

This seems worth repeating:

Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

Berlin Backlash?

It seems not everyone in Germany was ecstatic about Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin.

German broadcasting station Deutsche Welle reports that those attending were told to leave their placards and posters at home.

The move came under criticism, especially from the German left, which speculated that the campaign wanted to avoid images of Germans displaying anti-American statements. Others say the ban was aimed at preventing activists from making demands on Obama.

And the senator’s visit will cost just over three-quarters of a million dollars — half of which will be paid for with German public funds.

Kiwi Bounty

It seems there will be no such hero’s welcome in New Zealand for Condoleezza Rice this weekend.

The New Zealand Press Association is reporting that Auckland University’s student association is offering a $5,000 reward to any student who can make a successful citizen’s arrest of the secretary of state.
Association president David Do says the arrest would be for Rice’s role in “overseeing the illegal invasion and continued occupation” of Iraq.

He adds, “It is hard enough living as a student in Auckland these days without having a war criminal coming to town, so we thought we’d give our students a chance to make a dent in their student loans and work for global justice at the same time.”

Not Reporting the Good News?

A sharp decline in the intensity of news coverage of the Iraq war immediately followed General David Petraeus’ testimony before Congress last September.

Cybercast News reports that data from the Multi-National Force-Iraq shows there were 219 embedded reporters in Iraq when Petraeus told Congress that the surge was working. That was also the month that the surge reached full force.

The number of embedded reporters has since dropped by 74 percent in nine months to just 58 in June.

The largest single-month drop in embeds came in October of 2007 right after the general’s testimony.

Not So Fair & Balanced

The Arab news network Al-Jazeera celebrated the birthday of released Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar with a cake and fireworks.

The Middle East Media Research Institute reports that Kuntar — who shot an Israeli child’s father in front of her and then beat her to death with his rifle in 1979 — was given a hero’s welcome on the network.

One interviewer said, “You deserve even more than this. I think that 11,000 prisoners — if they can see this program now — are celebrating your birthday with you. Happy birthday.”

Kuntar, who was part of that Israel-Hezbollah prisoner swap last week, was then presented with a cake and a collage of photos, including one of him and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. And as Kuntar cut into his cake the network set off fireworks.

— FOX News Channel’s Zachary Kenworthy contributed to this report.

So, by way of brie recap, we have a Germany protecting – and actually paying for – Barack Obama’s effort to campaign on foreign soil. We have New Zealanders and college pukes at Auckland University insulting the U.S. Secretary of State – and the America that sent her – with the same crazy antiwar garbage that our own equally anti-American liberals routinely vomit out. We’ve got more in-your-face PROOF that the media wanted our American war effort in Iraq to fail and now refuse to broadcast its success. And we see that Arab media network Al Jazeera has a lot in common with our media here: they both like the terrorists more than they like those who fight them.

Just another typical day in the America-despising world…
