(The Olive) It never ceases to amaze this writer how the Leftist wack jobs, Democratic Socialists, the liberal media, and the leftist social media can celebrate and support the Obama’s and the Clintons as well as others like them, regardless of the glaringly obvious wrongs they have committed and their penchant for every other word being a lie.
One would think by the media’s fawning all over the Obamas that they had accomplished historically great things. Actually, the media in this case is 100% correct – it’s just that the Obama’s accomplishments are falling flat and did nothing to advance America. These “accomplishments” were and are in fact horrendously ill conceived and damaging to U.S. interests and national security.
Lets compare the Obamas to the Trumps shall we?
Remember Obama’s infamous red line in Syria? Obama had said that Syria’s use of chemical weapons would be crossing a red line. That line came and went and Obama did nothing. Oh there were plenty of excuses why the line was not enforced. Then Obama turned around and stated the red line was the world’s, not his. The real reason Obama did nothing? The Iran nuke deal – Obama’s crowning achievement.
Trump made a promise concerning any further use of chemical weapons in Syria just like Obama did – except Trump carried out his promise.
Obama promised to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and never followed through. Trump promised the same, and the embassy relocation will soon be completed.
Obama trashed Christianity and all things associated with it like marriage. Trump supports and defends Christianity while bringing the name of God, and respect for God back into his speeches.
Barack Obama apologized for the U.S. repeatedly to many foreign nations as if we were/are the bad guys making America look bad not to mention weak. Trump said lets “Make America Great Again,” without apology.
Barack Obama said the downturn in the U.S. economy as a whole was the new normal, nothing could be done about it. Trump promised to regain economic ground for the U.S. – and did just that, after which Obama attempted to take credit for the U.S. economic boom.
Barack Obama gifted a planeload of cash to Iran and four prisoners were released back to the U.S. Obama also traded five high-value Taliban lieutenants for the release of deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal. Donald Trump managed to get three prisoners released from North Korea ahead of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – with no preconditions.
During the reign of Obama, ISIS continued to grow and became a steadily larger and more dangerous threat. Inside of one year of the Trump presidency – of whom the left decried Trump as a moron that will accomplish nothing, 95% of ISIS territory was recovered and ISIS is a fraction of what it once was. Another Trump promise fulfilled.
President Obama bowed and scraped at the altar of the world standing up to no one. President Trump took office and said America bows to no one and then proceeded to back up his rhetoric with action – America first.
Obama and Hillary among many others said Trump’s America first agenda was dangerous and isolationist. Under Trump’s America first plan, the economy has grown far more than under Obama, companies have returned to the U.S. to do business, the stock market is higher then it ever has been, and Trump’s tax cuts have spurred more economic growth and investment in America then we have seen in decades.
Obama allowed the U.S. military to be severely gutted. Trump promised to rebuild it and is in fact doing just that.
Obama did what exactly about North Korea? Nothing, zip, zero, zilch. Then Obama and the rest of the left-wing apparatus along with the useless fake news media said Trump was going to start an all-out war with North Korea. A funny thing just happened concerning the supposed stupid moron who sits in the oval office currently – President Trump will be conducting a historic summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12.
Obama negotiated a horrible “deal” with Iran concerning their nuclear ambitions that neither stopped their nuclear research and development nor did anything to curb Iran’s sponsorship of terror. This deal did involve the U.S. flying millions of dollars in cash to Iran, and unfreezing assets for Iran. This deal was worth billions for Iran, who of course used this money to sponsor terror and continue in their ballistic missile and nuclear research as shown by Israel recently.
President Trump pulled the U.S. out of this badly negotiated deal and directed that sanctions be re-imposed on Iran while issuing a stern warning to Iran that the U.S. follows through on promises under Trump’s watch. America is no longer the laughing stock of the world as it was under Obama.
Obama ignored the U.S. Southern border allowing illegals in and doing nothing about it, costing the U.S. millions upon millions of dollars not to mention the increased crime problems. Trump is determined to clean up this disaster and protect the U.S. while the leftists in Congress fight him every step of the way.
All the while the Trump’s have been in the White House, the Obama’s have done nothing but criticize and belittle them. Princess Michelle Obama even went so far recently as to declare herself the “forever First Lady” – wow, what a slap in the face to Melania Trump. Before that idiotic declaration, Michelle referred to Barack as being the “good parent” – was that supposed to be comic relief?
The media of course has done nothing but trash Melania over everything from her heels to her accent. Through everything that has happened to the Trumps while in office, Melania has acted with cool class. That is far more than I can say of the Obamas and the media.
The Obamas and their left-wing cohorts did immense damage to this great country, but apparently do not have enough sense to realize this, all the while applauding themselves as the greatest gifts to America there ever was, while the media and many of the social media giants agree with them.
If Hitler was a renowned world leader that benefited and improved society as a whole, then yes – the Obamas and their leftist cronies definitely have something to celebrate.
