South Korea’s Moon over Obama

 

Moon meets with Putin

Post by Mustang

Gordon Chang’s recent article at the Gatestone Institute is nothing if not instructive.  Reading the post, titled “Will North Korea Take Over South Korea?” … one wonders how the people of South Korea, given their history over the past 70 years, can possibly accept President Moon’s treasonous behavior as their chief executive —but then, the efforts of this man to dismantle republican democracy in South Korea does sound awfully similar to the presidency of public enemy number one, Barack Obama.

I still shake my head every time I think of Obama’s election … not once, but twice.  In fact, there are so many similarities between Obama and Moon that one begins to think about conspiracies of global proportions.

You can read the article for yourself, but here are a few of his salient points:

  • ·       While visiting North Korea, President Moon went out of his way to downplay the legitimacy of the country he was elected to represent;
  • ·       Since becoming president in 2017, President Moon has undermined his country’s democracy in tangible ways, including the use of broadcast media to suppress dissenting views, while at the same time promoting those of North Korea.
  • ·    President Moon ordered the dismantling of the South Korean military, including the removal of defenses along likely invasion and infiltration routes.
  • ·       In North Korea, President Moon recently stood mute while Kim Jung Un referred to the South Korean people as “My people.”
  • ·     President Moon has long advocated unification of the Korean Peninsula; what no one expected is that he has been working overtime to make South Korea more compatible with the authoritarian nature of the North Korean state.  As but one example, Moon insists that the term “liberal” be removed from the concept of constitutional democracy.

So why are the people of South Korea standing idly by?

I suppose for the same reason our people thought that electing Barack Obama was a wise choice —on two occasions.  South Korea society today mirrors that of the United States: it is beset with social issues, which include alcoholism, substance abuse, over-fascination with social media and video games, destruction of core family values, and a sense that their nation’s policies are of no concern.  Being lulled to sleep by drugs and technology would seem to a windfall for Kim Jung Un.

Does any of this sound familiar?  Why does this matter?  Why should anyone care what South Korea does?

Does it matter because 34,000 Americans gave up their lives during the Korean War?  Does it matter because five-thousand Americans suffered as prisoners of war in North Korea and China —and that not all of them came home?  Since the Korean armistice (a peace treaty was never signed), the American taxpayer has paid billions of dollars helping to improve South Korea’s infrastructure and subsidizing South Korea’s national defense … a treaty obligation since 1950.

On the other hand, I’m not sure that there is anything the United States can do about President Moon’s treasonous behavior.  Maybe the wise course of action is to do nothing —let the Koreans decide their own fate, come hell or high water.  The American people seem incapable of dealing with their own political system much less those of another country so far from our shores … and you know, this does suggest to me that Obama achieved most of his goals as chief executive: to make fundamental changes to the United States of America.

Is it in America’s long-term interests to abandon global leadership?

Should we hit them in the old pocket book by refusing to buy Korean cars?

Well, such a remarkable repudiation of South Korea’s present leadership would suggest that we Americans have the chutzpah to act on our principles.

Or that we even have such things as principles.

 I would be interested in reader’s views.

Anti-Trump Puerto Rican Mayor Supported Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera

 

Mayor Cruz supported one of the most dangerous domestic terrorists around. In the end, he was sentenced to 55 years but whose sentence was commuted by Obama. A Marxist. But of course. No doubt Cruz will run for Governor so she can turn this hell hole into the next Marxist Utopia:

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the anti-Trump Mayor of San Juan who has used the national spotlight of Hurricane Maria to attack Trump, has a long history of supporting convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican radical who ran a paramilitary group that waged war against the United States.

Since May 29th, 2012, Cruz has used her official Twitter account 49 times to lend support to Lopez, a man arrested by the United States government in May of 1981 for seditious conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to transport explosives to destroy government property, among other charges. Later that year, Lopez was sentenced to 55 years in jail for his various crimes.

Indeed, Cruz and Lopez appear to be not just friends, but close friends.

Several months after President Obama commuted Rivera’s sentence just before he left office, a decision so bizarre even CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t understand it, Cruz tweeted a selfie of herself with a man who closely resembles Rivera, with the caption reading “Welcome #OscarLopez”

However, this is hardly surprising, given her long history of using her political clout to advocate on the convicted terrorist’s behalf. On September 20th, 2012, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself posing with street art of Rivera, writing “Free Oscar Lopez Rivera.”

Most Americans may not have heard of Lopez, or the organization he helped lead, the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a radical Marxist Puerto Rican independence group. With the focus of post-9/11 terrorism falling almost exclusively on Islamist radicals, the violent nationalists of yesteryear—Puerto Rican, Cuban, Croatian and Jewish—have faded into obscurity. But during the FALN’s explosive heyday under Lopez’s leadership, the group was anything but obscure. In fact, from 1974, when the group announced itself with its first bombings, to 1983, when arrests finally destroyed its membership base, the FALN was the most organized, active, well-trained and deadly domestic terror group based in the United States.

The FALN was responsible for over 130 bombings during this period, including the January 1975 explosion in Manhattan’s historic Fraunces Tavern, which killed four and wounded 63. In October of that year, it set off, all within the span of an hour, 10 bombs in three cities, causing nearly a million dollars in damage. In August 1977, the FALN set off a series of bombs in Manhattan, forcing 100,000 workers to evacuate their offices; one person was killed, and six were injured. In 1979, the group even threatened to blow up the Indian Point nuclear energy facility located north of New York City. It later sent a communiqué warning the U.S. to “remember … that you have never experienced war on your vitals and that you have many nuclear reactors.” In 1980, FALN members stormed the Carter-Mondale election headquarters in Chicago, and the George H.W. Bush campaign headquarters in New York, holding employees there hostage at gunpoint. In 1981, they plotted to kidnap President Reagan’s son Ron. Plainly, the group was deadly serious about its objectives—a free, independent and socialist Puerto Rico—and zealous in its pursuit of them. More at Politico

Woman who took down Durham Statue a Pro-North Korea Marxist

 

Now that is saying something. So this has everything to do with tearing down our country not any statue. It sure is a stretch for someone to become a fat boy supporter. Talk about over achieving. Zip has caught up with more of her pals in his post More Arrested In Toppling Of Confederate Statue In North Carolina. Of course :Workers World Party communists. Those were also the beginning foot soldiers of Occupy. Note in all of the footage of Charlotte and Durham that the Blacks were few in number. I guess they didn’t get the message:

One of the activists who toppled a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., on Monday night is a member of an extreme leftist group that supports the totalitarian regime in North Korea and wants to abolish capitalism.

Taqiyah Thompson, a student at North Carolina Central University, was arrested Tuesday following a press conference in which she defended the actions of the demonstrators and equated police officers to Confederate soldiers and Ku Klux Klan members.

“I did the right thing,” she said. “Everyone who was there — the people did the right thing. The people will continue to keep making the right choices until every Confederate statue is gone, until white supremacy is gone. That statue is where it belongs. It needs to be in the garbage.”

Thompson is a member of the Worker’s World Party (WWP), a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist group originally formed in 1959 as a hard-line offshoot of the more moderate Socialist Workers Party. In addition to supporting a wide range of far-left causes, the group also defends the North Korean regime of dictator Kim Jong-un against alleged U.S. imperialism. More at Daily Caller

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.

Bonus update: 

Published on Oct 23, 2012 – President’s apology tour four years ago.

President Obama says the idea that he went on an “apology tour” is probably the “biggest whopper” of this campaign. You decide.

Obama and his Marxist Professors. ‘I chose my friends carefully’

It’s too bad the Media can’t find it within themselves to question Obama about his lack of love of America. Rudy Giuliani sure is having his feet held to the fire regarding his statements questioning Obama’s lack of viewing the good ole USA as exceptional. Just for the record, here are Obama’s own words. Why not ask Obama what has made him change his mind or has he? After all “transforming America” doesn’t sound like he has.

Barack Obama’s DREAMS FROM MY FATHER:A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE.

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout,I chose my friends carefully.The more politically active black students.The foreign students.The Chicanos.The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets.At night,in the dorms,we discussed neocolonialism,Franz Fanon,Eurocentrism,and patriarchy.When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake,we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints.We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure.We were alienated.

Is this just youthful Marxism? For a look at Obama’s socialist relationships after college,click on this link.Here’s a video of Senator Obama endorsing socialist Bernie Sanders for Senate. (You will note his “Community Organizer” cadence in the clip.) He chose Sanders over the Democratic candidate.

Here’s some of the quotes from the endorsement:Obama calls Bernie Sanders an “outstanding candidate”,Obama says “things can change”,Obama said “I want to make sure everybody is as enthusiastic as I am” concerning Bernie Sanders and “only a handful of wrong headed people don’t like him.” These amazing quotes are on this video the Obama campaign hopes you don’t see.Obama doesn’t seem to mind endorsing and hanging out with socialists.

Bad people send their children to private schools

Now the call goes out to sacrifice one’s children on the altar of Progressivism. What Mother Nature has done for us, encoding our DNA to sacrifice for the sake of our progeny, the Progressives apparently have had that particular piece of DNA lose its way into the strand. Perhaps this explains their often incomprehensible view of the world. So here we go, am I the only one who sees some similarity to Hitler’s view of the German youth?

While most would probably argue that prioritizing your child’s future over a collectivist political agenda makes you a better parent, Slate‘s Allison Benedikt argues today that moving your kids from a failing public school to a successful private schools makes you something of a horrible person

Benedikt writes :

You are a bad person if you send your children to private school. Not bad like murderer bad—but bad like ruining-one-of-our-nation’s-most-essential-institutions-in-order-to-get-what’s-best-for-your-kid bad. So, pretty bad.

I am not an education policy wonk: I’m just judgmental. But it seems to me that if every single parent sent every single child to public school, public schools would improve. This would not happen immediately. It could take generations. Your children and grandchildren might get mediocre educations in the meantime, but it will be worth it, for the eventual common good. …

I believe in public education, but my district school really isn’t good! you might say. I understand. You want the best for your child, but your child doesn’t need it. If you can afford private school (even if affording means scrimping and saving, or taking out loans), chances are that your spawn will be perfectly fine at a crappy public school. She will have support at home (that’s you!) and all the advantages that go along with being a person whose family can pay for and cares about superior education—the exact kind of family that can help your crappy public school become less crappy. She may not learn as much or be as challenged, but take a deep breath and live with that

Benedikt seems to agree with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry: Children don’t belong to families, they “belong to their communities.”   The progressive ideology demands that you bear more responsibility for the collective education of the community than for the educational enrichment of your own child.

Radical Angela Davis Documentary funded by Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith Praises Radical Leftist Angela Davis, Finances Pro-Davis Film, so the headline reads. The movie trailer is unbelievable. Where are the McCarthy hearings when we need them once again? These are the people who are now being lionized? Those who would destroy our country? Here we go:

Former Communist Party member and long-time radical left activist Angela Davis is the subject of a new documentary partly financed by Hollywood mogul Jada Pinkett Smith (wife of actor Will Smith), who praised the Lenin Peace Prize winner as a “figure that embodied justice and freedom.”

“You know what was most surprising to me is that the idea of what she [Davis] inspired, not just nationally, but throughout the world, that she became this figure that embodied justice and freedom, and that people all over the world that were fighting for justice and freedom, you know, used her as the symbol in which to forge ahead,” said Smith

Davis was a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) from 1969 to 1991. She traveled to East Germany in 1979 to personally accept the International Lenin Peace Prize. She ran as a vice presidential candidate on the CPUSA ticket in 1980 and 1984, and today she is on the advisory board of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

Davis also owned the shotgun that was used to kidnap and kill Marin County Judge Harold Haley on Aug. 7, 1970 in a scheme involving one of Davis’s acquaintances, a crime that led to Davis fleeing from authorities, being placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, and facing a trial and acquittal in 1972 on murder, kidnapping, and criminal conspiracy charges. She was found not guilty on all counts.

Of course, she now teaches our children and is a College Professor. She joins the rest of the Marxist Commies that came out of the 1960’s. Those that are not indoctrinating our kids, are in our government. First the trailer before the interview.

 Jada Pinkett Smith Praises Radical Leftist Angela Davis. They speak of “our political struggle.” Really?
