Krauthammer vs. Obama: The mismatch

If Barack Obama is simply incompetent, naive, and weak when it comes to dealing with Russia, why is his administration proposing giving Russia free military equipment after announcing suspiciously pathetic sanctions in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine? Judicial Watch has linked to a press release from Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) in which the U.S. Congressman openly asks why an Obama administration budget proposal for FY15 includes providing Russia with “high level military technology”.

Krauthammer: Right where Obama wants him?

Krauthammer: Right where Obama wants him?

In his latest column, Obama vs. Putin: The mismatch, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer has for some reason constructed a firewall behind his forehead that prevents him from considering that the President is acquiescing to Putin on purpose instead of out of ineptitude. The columnist continues to make an otherwise very cogent argument from an extremely flawed premise about Obama. has documented his views on what he perceives to be Barack Obama’s ‘weakness’ relative to foreign policy generally, with Russia in particular.

The premise that Krauthammer is starting from is that Obama wants to do the right thing when it comes to Russia and Ukraine but that he is simply incapable of doing so. If that were correct, Krauthammer’s critiques of the President would constitute political evisceration. If incorrect, Obama has Krauthammer right where he wants him.

Krauthammer is beside himself as he watches from a ringside seat, two leaders of two heavyweight nations in what should be an epic fight. He’s disappointed that the guy he’s invested in isn’t putting up one. No, actually, he’s downright frustrated to the point of pulling his hair out. In his latest column, he says the following about Obama’s assertion that Putin’s behavior in Ukraine isn’t suited for the 21st century:

“Good God. Putin hasn’t transcended the Russian revolution. Did no one give Obama a copy of Putin’s speech last week upon the annexation of Crimea?”

Translation? Mr. President, that was the weakest jab I’ve ever seen. How about if you start fighting?

Obama and the Stalinist who mentored him.

Obama and the Stalinist who mentored him.

What the firewall behind Krauthammer’s forehead is preventing him from considering is that Obama is intentionally throwing the fight. Was not the president mentored by a pro-Soviet Stalinist for nearly a decade in the 1970’s? Is it not possible, Charles, that one of the voices in Obama’s head is that of Frank Marshall Davis, which is likely telling him to let Putin win because the United States is the bane of the earth’s existence?

One of the reasons Dr. Krauthammer is so invested in his premise very well may be his dismissal of the Davis factor for so many years. In doing so, he bet on America overcoming Obama. Those of us who understand the true gravity of any American President having such relationships weren’t so sure. For Krauthammer to admit this now would be an admission that he was wrong not to sound alarm bells about Davis in 2008.

Earlier this month, Krauthammer was nearly apoplectic in response to the “humiliating” response of the Obama administration towards Vladimir Putin’s aggression. During an appearance on the Fox News Channel, Krauthammer said of Obama’s handing out of a few sanctions to a few influential Russians, “If he thinks that sanctioning seven Russians out of a population of, what, 150 million is a sanction, he’s living in a different world”.

As for the world Krauthammer’s living in, it’s akin to Putin leaving himself exposed for a haymaker after making an aggressive mistake and Obama responding with a love tap. As Krauthammer watches the fight from the front row, those of us in the cheap seats may be seeing things a bit more clearly.

Since this post is replete with boxing metaphors, here’s a video of one:

    Anything that we see as headline news which lasts for days or weeks is a ruse to keep the population from the real news. Anything that lasts for months or years is seen as partisan or racist as to dismiss it. (Via stone walling)

    There is a genocide taking place right now…
    The religion of peace is holding the knives…
    The blood of the victims cries out…
    While the media looks away…

      Your right. Perhaps you can write your two bits in an article and I would not mind posting it 😉

          Evil Is Upon Us Once Again

          I remember the times when my grandmother would tell me stories about the Armenian genocide perpetrated by Turkey via the help of Germany in World War I. As a direct result of these massacres Armenian’s that could escape the coming onslaught fled to other parts of the world which is why I was born in Teheran, IRAN formerly known as Persia. My father and mother immigrated to America when I was just 7 years old.

          The Shah was in power and the diverse population had safe guards against these radicals who are on a killing spree today around the globe. As bad as the regimes of these dictators in the middle east were on certain segments of the population one must also have a grip of history to know why.

          Egypt, Persia, North Africa etc.. these and other countries were not Muslim to begin with they had their own religion and culture and if not for the armies from Europe defeating the Islamic army’s we would not have a Western Europe today like France, Spain etc..

          Syria’s Bashar al-Assad is correct in his assessment about political Islam. This is what is taking place in so many parts of the world. We are constantly told by our national leaders it’s a religion of peace. Well if it is a religion of peace then the past behavior should be different than the present behavior. This is a natural assumption since its been hijacked as we’re being led to believe. However If from the beginning of Islam as history does prove there is no difference then there can’t be any hijacking of this religion. So what we have is a reawakening of this evil force.

          When the World Trade Center was attacked I was flying from London to America and since air travel was grounded my family spent over a week in Great Britain. Afterwards I found myself back in Spain wrapping up some unfinished business I had an interesting conversation with a good friend of mine who is Muslim who was eager to state how he was against the 9-11 attacks and he proceeded to tell me how we worship the same God and all this killing was wrong. I replied back to him with the historical perspective in mind. You see he was from N Africa and born into a Muslim family. His parents were Muslim and their parents also till we both agreed that the only reason this was so is that his grand, grand, grand parents had a sword resting on their neck with a choice die or convert to Islam. There was no choosing no exercise of free will just bullying or die.

          This is political Islam this is why Christians are being slaughtered in these countries, while here in the USA Islam has 501-C cover group’s, spinning a different tale, this modern day Trojan horse tactic has tax deductible funding followed by laws against insulting them soon to be followed by sharia law etc.. (they have no plans to assimilate, only impose their will and conquer.)

          They demand equal protection under our laws all the while no Churches are allowed to be built on their soil yet they build Mosques in our cities.

          They freely have the Koran here yet you can’t have a Bible in public view in their lands.

          They want the freedom to share Islam here and make it a crime to share any other faith in their land.

          They enjoy liberty here and all non Muslims are viewed as lower class with few rights in their land.

          With the current administration cutting deals with Turkey and bedfellows with the Muslim Brotherhood as well as a Corrupt Senate/Congress/Supreme Court/Attorney General/Media the list seems endless too which end they have very fertile ground to plant their seeds of world domination after all some of the biggest donors to our elected representative’s are from oil rich countries, they are setting the stage to do in America what they have done to Sweden and other countries.

          I want to end by saying that I have had many Muslim friends throughout the years and even they are sickened by what they have witnessed and now with the mass slaughters and deliberate cover up and lies I’m sure this is why so many are leaving this religion. They came to America to assimilate they abide by our laws they don’t try to change them. They learn our language and their children serve in our armed services faithfully. These are the ones who don’t defend what’s going on they speak out against it openly they do the opposite of all the phony front groups we see on all the media shows.

          Walid and staff keep up the fight for the truth, you are reflecting light on the darkness that is upon us.

  • richinnameonly

    Krauthammer is as wrong as O’Reilly. That’s why they’re on the same show often, to bolster each other. These guys think Obama is merely in over his head. O’Reilly calls Obama a patriot and says his heart is in the right place. They don’t get that Obama’s playing them like a fiddle.

  • yahshua love’s you

    Obama seems to have everything under control his Gestapo agents are probably working over night threatening people so they won’t talk

  • clarioncaller

    The CFR, Krauthammer, and the Jesuit, O’Reilly know exactly whats going on because they’re privy to the NWO game plan. And Congress is in the tank also, or else someone would have filed articles of impeachment by now even though the Senate, under Reid, is a joke. When they’re in session, they should be looping a Muzak version of “Send In The Clowns”.
