Obama to gobble up 5000 Square miles of ocean, bans commercial fishing

Obama has been making massive land grabs and now he moves on to the waterways. No doubt putting many fishermen out of work as well as all the support industries by banning commercial fishing which has made New England famous.

The designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument marks the 27th time Obama has acted to create or expand a national monument. He has done so unilaterally, using the authorities granted under the Antiquities Act.

“But there’s also going to be some other very significant things that aren’t really quantifiable in dollars, like new marine protected areas, like bans on plastic bags..

(CNSNews.com) – The State Department is hosting a two-day conference on the world’s oceans, beginning today, and it’s expected to produce a raft of announcements and initiatives, including new marine protected areas — one off the coast of New England — as well as a ban on single-use plastic bags.

Ahead of the conference, press reports said President Obama on Thursday will establish the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean to permanently protect nearly 5,000 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the coast of New England.

The White House said the designation will lead to a ban on commercial fishing — an industry that made New England famous…

President Obama, with the stroke of a pen, created the world’s largest ocean reserve on Friday off Hawaii, 400,000 square miles, days after designating a massive federal monument in Maine – moves that have angered local lawmakers who accuse the president of disregarding the impact on residents.

Obama Designates National Monument in Maine, to Dismay of SomeNew York Times3 days ago

Mr. Obama designated more than 87,500 acres of rugged terrain

It became by far the largest region of federal parkland in Maine, surpassing the 48,900-acre Acadia National Park on the coast

Just a few of the land grabs… and he says he is far from done.

Obama moves up moment of silence at Pentagon to accommodate himself

No doubt the golf course was calling. Our king apparently became impatient. Says all we need to know. It would have been nice for the families to have the moment at the time of the attack, but he comes first. Here tis;

A moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama, a Department of Defense official told The Daily Caller.

A source close to the situation told TheDC that Obama arrived early to the memorial service — which took place at the Pentagon — and wanted to get things started early.

A Department of Defense official confirmed that the moment of silence was moved up a few minutes and that Obama was the one who made the decision, saying the president “moved early.”

The moment of silence was originally slotted to take place at 9:37 AM — the time at which the Pentagon was attacked on September 11 — but ended up taking place a few minutes early.

Obama tells Laos that U.S. citizens are lazier than citizens of other nations

So Obama gets to take a whack at us on foreign soil for perhaps the last time. Lazy? Speak about yourself. But that is your projection. Can you imagine any other leader going on foreign soil and dissing his/her citizens? Yet the comment never made a ruffle of news now did it?

President Obama twice on Wednesday suggested to a foreign audience that Americans are in some ways lazier than citizens of other nations.

Speaking at a town hall meeting at Souphanouvong University in Laos, Obama said that Americans can be lazy when it comes to protecting the environment as well as when learning about other cultures.

“Usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development,” Obama said, according to a transcript provided by USA Today reporter Gregory Korte. “It’s usually because we are being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in the smarter, sustainable way.”

Obama has acknowledged in the past that he, too, can be lazy at times.
“There is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there’s a laziness in me,” Obama told Barbara Walters during a December 2011 interview

It starts at 20:30 — his disrespect for us.

Finally the Philippine’s Duterte tells Obama to go to Hell

Yes, the world is as sick of Obama telling us what where how and when we are to live our lives. China gave it to him, making him walk out the ass end of his plane, and one of our most valuable allies decided he had enough. Obama fauns over the Middle Eastern countries that treats women and gays terribly, but wait…. the Philippines were his second home don’t you know.

“We absolutely expect (President Obama) will raise concerns about some of the recent statements from the president of the Philippines,” White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told media when asked whether Duterte’s controversial remarks about vigilante killings,journalistsand women would be on the agenda.

This is what the answer was:

duterte

“Double your efforts. Triple them, if need be. We will not stop until the last drug lord, the last financier, and the last pusher have surrendered or put behind bars — or below the ground, if they so wish,” Duterte said during his State of the Nation speech on July 25.

So Mr President how about this J.V. team called Isis?

Amazing how this petulant President of ours comes out yesterday with a zero plan on how to deal with terrorism in the so-called “Homeland” but can give a crack about guns. I guess he forgets about pressure cookers and assorted other methods of death and destruction. The blood is on his hands. Just a few short years ago Isis could have easily been destroyed. Instead he allowed them to march across the Middle East unimpeded except for a few drone attacks here and there authorized by Val Jar and perhaps himself after wringing their hands incessantly. So Mr. President, how about this JV team? Huh? Give us your best answer. We deserve it. Or is it just more of those “shovel ready” jobs you proclaimed were just around the corner.

Obama lifts ban on arm sales to Vietnam

Oh I suppose I am just being silly. How does Obama lift a ban on arms sales to Vietnam? I assume the ban was placed by Congress. Try as I might, I could find nothing regarding this little matter. I can’t imagine how the wounded and families who lost loved ones deal with this. We arm a Communist country. That is what we do. We have no clue what the turn of events will be and where Vietnam’s future will end up. But this is how we show our love.

vietnam

U.S. President Obama on Monday lifted a half-century ban on selling arms to Vietnam, a move that is raising concerns among some Vietnam War veterans.

“At this stage, both sides have established a level of trust and cooperation, including between our militaries, that is reflective of common interests and mutual respect,” said Mr. Obama during his first visit there, The Associated Press reported. “This change will ensure thatVietnam has access to the equipment it needs to defend itself and removes a lingering vestige of the Cold War.”

Every U.S. arms sale would be reviewed case by case, AP said.

More than 58,200 U.S. soldiers were killed in Vietnam before the fall of Saigon in 1975. But the administration saw advantages in easing the embargo, both as a warning to expansionist China and as leverage to compel the communist regime in Hanoi to improve its record on human rights.

“They are still a communist country,” said retired Army Maj. Wulf Linden, a Georgia resident who served two tours in Vietnam. “If it’s the cream of our crop [of weapons systems], obviously that would be a bad mistake. It would be nice if we’re not selling to a regime that’s a documented communist regime. That’s my concern.”

Bao Nguyen, the mayor of Garden Grove, California, has written a letter to Mr. Obama and to Secretary of State John F. Kerry about Vietnam’s “atrocious” human rights record, including its imprisonment of dissidents in solitary confinement without charges.

“While we have an arms surplus to deal with, I don’t think dumping those arms on developing nations is the most effective way to counter China,” Mr. Nguyen said. “That’s because there’s no way to know that the government won’t use those weapons against its own people. Especially a government as corrupt and autocratic as Vietnam.”

Obama apology tour continues – Sorry Argentinians because….

I didn’t think we could get through his last tour of Argentina without a bow, bend or otherwise denigrating the U.S. This one is particularly annoying. One has to dig deep on this one. Try about 40 years. Meanwhile Obama supports the most repressive regimes, oh yes he does, and decries we didn’t support Democracy in Argentina? Then I give you a clip done in 2012. You decide.

It was 40 years ago that the Argentine military overthrew the civilian government that had been unable to deal with Marxist guerrillas and left-wing violence in general. What followed was a brutal suppression of human rights and murder on an unimaginable scale by the military.

It’s nice that the president found it within himself to condemn the “dirty war” that the U.S. did nothing to stop.

The U.S. did not openly support the military’s tactics, but we didn’t say very much against them either. This left an opening for President Obama to apologize to the Argentinian people for our lack of enthusiasm in working to overthrow a government battling a communist insurgency.

It’s a shame he couldn’t have found the moral courage to make the same criticism of the Castro boys. They’ve been disappearing people for 57 years.

“There has been controversy about the policies of the United States early in those dark days,” Obama said while visiting a memorial park in Buenos Aires dedicated to victims of the dictatorship.

“Democracies have to have the courage to acknowledge when we don’t live up to the ideals that we stand for. And we’ve been slow to speak out for human rights and that was the case here,” he said.
