The Vanquished Powers Were Glad

Posted by revkharma on August 12, 2014

As the Obama Administration muddles through one more vacation, they take some military action which is completely representative of the entire regime and it’s mindset.

In a story posted to Stars And Stripes Lt. General William Mayville says the following:

“We assess that U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq have slowed ISIL’s operational tempo and temporarily disrupted their advances toward the province of Irbil. However, these strikes are unlikely to affect ISIL’s overall capabilities or its operation in other areas of Iraq and Syria,”

So, we will send our military to make lots of noise and flash, but the administration knows, in advance that is all for appearance, and no long term effect. They seem to believe that there are no real enemies which require engagement and long term attention.

Time and again this regime ‘pivots’ and applies a ‘laser like focus’ to a new issue, a new geopolitical crisis, only to move on once the headlines shrink away and the network cameras are pointed into another direction.

They believe their own hype, and are confident that we are in a ‘post-modern’ world. The US secretary of state blusters that the Russian leadership simply will stop, because ‘One simply does not do that in the twenty first century’. 

You see, they just know more, they are better, they are undeniably more moral than any previous administration, or the hoi polloi over which they must rule.

Obama and his team simply imagine  because they think it, because they want it, the world will bend to conform to their statements and judgments. ISIS is ‘The JV team’ and not worth attention.

Syria will comply with Obama’s demands, because they simply must.

This regime believes their own hype and acts as if all the evil in the world will stop merely because they will it. They act as if there are no bad actors on the world state, and if only John Kerry can get a ‘sit down’ then every tyrant and dictator will see the inherent wisdom of his words and follow the lead of Obama the Great and Powerful. 

Recently I came across something written by WH Auden, which I think poetically reflects my thoughts better than my ramblings above.

So an age ended, and its last deliverer died
In bed, grown idle and unhappy; they were safe:
The sudden shadow of a giant’s enormous calf
Would fall no more at dusk across their lawns outside.

They slept in peace: in marshes here and there no doubt
A sterile dragon lingered to a natural death,
But in a year the slot had vanished from the heath;
A kobold’s knocking in the mountain petered out.

Only the sculptors and the poets were half-sad,
And the pert retinue from the magician’s house
Grumbled and went elsewhere. The vanquished powers were glad

To be invisible and free; without remorse
Struck down the silly sons who strayed into their course,
And ravished the daughters, and drove the fathers mad.

We cannot simply ignore evil, it will not vanish simply because we ‘don’t believe in it anymore’.

Another shorter quote which I also believe is appropriate  may be more familiar. 

In the words of Louis XV:

Après moi, le déluge

Keep the Faith!

We should Unite to Support The New Administration

Posted by revkharma on January 21, 2009

As the election results came in, many from the campaign of President Obama were quick to call for America to rally behind the incoming president.  Fom all parts of the political spectrum came endorsements. Lame duck President Bush did his best to smooth the transition. Even the loudmouth blowhard socialist Michael Moore brayed that we should take the opportunity to move forward in unity. I wrote a little about this in an  earlier post. ( here)

I am an American. I am proud to support the constitution and laws that have built this great republic. The transfer of power we witnessed yesterday is almost a reflex, not a big deal in the USA.  Many other nations still can only wonder at the beauty and elegance. We had one party with diametrically opposed views to the incumbent administration. The election results showed them to have won, and there was no violence, no need for military intervention. George W. Bush shook hands with his successor and flew to his home for a life out of the spotlight. This is wonderful

The democrat party has called for unity. Mr. Obama wishes all of America to join him on his path to change. This is a laudible goal.

During the inaugural festivities, there were still some dischordant notes.  A group of ‘tolerant democrats, who only want change’ began to taunt the outgoing president, displaying the class their party is becoming famous for.

And then, there was the ‘invocation’ given by Reverend Joseph Lowery:

 

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around…”

There was laughter from the enormous crowd. The 87-year-old civil rights pioneer continued:

“When yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.”

 


If they and he actually are sincere, then why is something like this posted on the official Whitehouse web site?

 

President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.

President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.

President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.

I submit to you that this is NOT the sign of an administration intent on cooperation and reconciliation.

Mr. Obama— President Obama, you are in office only one day, this is the first full day of your administration and you have shown yourself to be petty, mean spirited and bent on fixing blame and living in the past. I thought we were moving forward. I thought we were ready for Change. I thought we were “the change we have been waiting for”

This is not change, this certainly does not engender hope. 

Sadly, but clearly not surprisingly, in a matter of hours, Barack Hussein Obama has shown his roots lie deep in the past, with the corrupt, and vindicative members of his democrat party. President Obama did not wait even one day to use the Office of the President to make a needless, classless and vindictive swipe at his predecessor in office.

How very disappointing. Unfortunately, I am sure this will not be the last, nor even the worst of disappointments served to the American people while this snake oil salesman holds the reigns of power. 

Americans will need to work dilligently and tirelessly for our Repulic to survive this administration and the “Change” they seek to foist upon us.

Once again, I repeat a question:

What will happen when Atlas shrugs?

As always,

Keep the Faith
