One of the greatest things about 2017 is that we were able to bid farewell to the eight years that Barack Obama was allowed to run roughshod over the United States and allow people who had no authority to do the same. Many Americans are very excited about President Trump’s first year in office.
We’ve had enough of Obama’s policies which weakened America and our military and made us look weak among nations around the world. Not that Obama could care. Afterall, Obama supported Obamacare and wanted a One World government, just like Hillary.
Although the President is quickly turning around all of Obama’s agenda, regulations and anti-American policies, we can’t forget that the former President still has power and influence throughout the world. At one of Obama’s last gatherings with other world leaders at the UN, Obama said this:
The two international deals for climate change and Iran nuclear nonproliferation, along with strengthening the United Nations were highlights of the Obama legacy and the former president’s efforts. Thankfully, as we’ve seen – President Trump has been able to nix both of those treaties and together with Ambassador Nikki Haley, basically told the UN to go pound salt until they start treating the US with more respect.
President Obama had just been in office 9 months when he gave his first address to the U.N. in 2009. He pledged to begin “a new chapter of international cooperation” after many around the world viewed America with “skepticism and distrust.” Then he ran around bowing and apologizing for America.
Barack Obama in his first-term as president offered ambitious plans to rid the world of nuclear weapons, confront climate change, defeat al Qaeda and its allies and pointed to his first day in office where he ordered the prison at Guantanamo closed. Wow – what a miserable failure, eh?
And he just LOVES pointing out that HE killed Osama Bin Laden, but everything he’s ever stood for, supported or voted for would have taken away the tools the military and our covert operations needed to find out where Bin Laden was in the first place!
“…but we have to put our money where our mouths are. And we can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding — to replace the ravages of war with cooperation — if powerful nations like my own accept constraints,” said Obama. “Sometimes I’m criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions.”
“But I am convinced that in the long run, giving up some freedom of action — not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term — enhances our security. And I think that’s not just true for us.”
WTH!? The United Nations has one goal: Globalization. The UN’s only intention is to bring about new world and economic order and support an international system of governance. The UN doesn’t exist to help the world. We’ve already seen how on many occasions how the UN has failed to protect those that really need protections. It hasn’t stopped genocide or wars.
