Obama refuses to meet with NATO head


One can only wonder at the absurd behavior of Obama. Why in the world would he not meet with these folks? NATO, the last stand when the Russian bear rises again, and he is rising. One gets the feeling is that he really doesn’t want to be bothered. Is it just that simple? Or has he lost his wheels. Here we go:

It is hard for me to believe that the president of the United States has not found the time to meet with the current secretary general of NATO given the magnitude of what this implies, and the responsibilities of his office,” Volker said. President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won’t see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days.  Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House, two sources close to the NATO chief told me.

The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world’s largest military alliance in October. Stoltenberg, twice the prime minister of Norway, met Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa to discuss the threat of the Islamic State and the crisis in Ukraine, two issues near the top of Obama’s agenda.

Kurt Volker, who served as the U.S. permanent representative to NATO under both President George W. Bush and Obama, said the president broke a long tradition.  “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president … so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” he told me.

America’s commitment to defend its NATO allies is its biggest treaty obligation, said Volker, adding that European security is at its most perilous moment since the Cold War. Russia has moved troops and weapons into eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea, placed nuclear-capable missiles in striking distance of NATO allies, flown strategic-bomber mock runs in the North Atlantic, practiced attack approaches on the U.K. and Sweden, and this week threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Denmark’s warships.

    There’s an Anti-War blog that speaks to how we were ‘mislead’ into the war – “16 Articles That Expose How They Lied Us Into War in Iraq” https://medium.com/@DanSanchezV/16-articles-that-expose-how-they-lied-us-into-war-in-iraq-bedf2e47c0bc
    and these were purported to be Pro Americans. Puppet O doesn’t ‘feel’ he has to bother to meet – even for a photo op – so that must mean that the Globalist are so close to their goal of WW3 coming down the pipe that they don’t even need him to act the part of caring. NATO drills are going on the boarder of the Ukraine involving USA, and soon there’ll be drills going on in 7 West states of America – which are highly suspicious – Jade Helm.
    Just to show that things are going on here too:

    It seems to me as if Obama is disinterested in everything other than using the last two years of his Presidency to push through his agenda “by hook or by crook” and he cannot be bothered to deal with anything else. He really does not care how the world views him…with the exception of Iran of course.

    I believe it was on CNN this morning where someone asked “WHY wouldn’t the president meet this guy from NATO?”
    Why, indeed.

    McNorman, there’s a great cartoon where it shows an ISIS member holding a golf club and attempting to saw the head off it ….in front of Obama..the caption from ISIS is “Maybe THIS’ll get his attention?”
    If Obama plays golf DURING March Madness, we can at least all rest easy he isn’t doing TOO MUCH that’s TOO ROTTEN. Too bad Valerie Jarrett doesn’t play golf.

    Why would Obieonemulattomuslim meet with schizophrenic infidels who have expressed an interest in addressing the ISIS crisis while at the same time refusing to appreciate the ongoing attempts by his Islamo-facist brethren’s attempts to first subdue the middle east, then the whole of Africa, the western world and Asia to Allah’s will? Besides he is previously engaged with March Madness.
