Obama bows to Chinese President

by Rodan ( 190 Comments › )
Filed under Barack Obama, Multiculturalism, Progressives, Tranzis at November 24th, 2009 - 10:22 am

A picture speaks 1000 words. Our Collaborator in Chief  Barack Hussein Obama bows to foreign leaders every chance he gets. His latest is bowing before Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on his recent China trip.

Obama bows to China

 Obama is bowing because of all the money he is borrowing from the Chinese Fascistic Imperial Regime to pay for his Progressive Policies. Another reason for his bow is that he really has a low opinion of America. The following article aptly describes how his self humbling acts has gain no favors from our enemies.

When he entered office, US President Barack Obama promised to inject US foreign policy with a new tone of respect and diplomacy. His recent trip to Asia, however, showed that it’s not working. A shift to Bush-style bluntness may be coming.

There were only a few hours left before Air Force One was scheduled to depart for the flight home. US President Barack Obama trip through Asia had already seen him travel 24,000 kilometers, sit through a dozen state banquets, climb the Great Wall of China and shake hands with Korean children. It was high time to take stock of the trip.

 Barack Obama looked tired on Thursday, as he stood in the Blue House in Seoul, the official residence of the South Korean president. He also seemed irritable and even slightly forlorn. The CNN cameras had already been set up. But then Obama decided not to play along, and not to answer the question he had already been asked several times on his trip: what did he plan to take home with him? Instead, he simply said “thank you, guys,” and disappeared. David Axelrod, senior advisor to the president, fielded the journalists’ questions in the hallway of the Blue House instead, telling them that the public’s expectations had been “too high.”

 The mood in Obama’s foreign policy team is tense following an extended Asia trip that produced no palpable results. The “first Pacific president,” as Obama called himself, came as a friend and returned as a stranger. The Asians smiled but made no concessions.

Read the rest.

Obama is a disgrace to the Presidency and the Nation. He clearly views himself as Post American and a servant of the world. He regime collaborates with our enemies while attempting to silence opposition at home. This man’s incompetance is a menace to America and the world!

    This scumbag has time to go to the Opera. Time for Leno. Time for Letterman. Time to entertain Hollywood idiots at lavish White house parties.

    but mcChrystal waits 100 days and then gets less than half the troops he needs.

    Barry Sottero is the worst president in american history. a dangerous neophyte of the lowest order

    Remember, the Great Leader’s ascendancy is him, not about the nation.

    It would be all good and well if the Great Leader had any genuine humility, but we know better.

    “Barack Obama looked tired on Thursday”

    spin -- he wasn’t bowing, he was nodding off…

    “what did he plan to take home with him?”

    answer -- cool camera’s you can’t get in the states for cheap…

    “David Axelrod, senior advisor to the president, fielded the journalists’ questions in the hallway of the Blue House instead, telling them that the public’s expectations had been “too high.””

    meaning…you should all know by now he is a weak person and to expect anything would be too much.

    “The Asians smiled but made no concessions.”

    interpretaion -- we didn’t get anything, but they really liked me.

    Damn, Chuck “Nontroversy” Johnson is nuttier than the original Moonbat:

    It’s no use pretending this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.

    Yes, the messages were obtained illegally. Yes, all of us say things in emails that would be excruciating if made public. Yes, some of the comments have been taken out of context. But there are some messages that require no spin to make them look bad. There appears to be evidence here of attempts to prevent scientific data from being released, and even to destroy material that was subject to a freedom of information request.

    Worse still, some of the emails suggest efforts to prevent the publication of work by climate sceptics, or to keep it out of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I believe that the head of the unit, Phil Jones, should now resign. Some of the data discussed in the emails should be re-analysed.

    George “Moonbat” Monbiot. Of course he goes on to say GoreBull Warming is still the one true Word of the Great Nothing, or something like that, but the point is he recognizes that this is too big to be swept under the rug and forgotten about. As much as he’d like to. He tries to trivialize it, but his own reaction bides against that.

    He was abandoned by his father.
    He was raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. (Hawaii is a state, but it ain’t America.)
    He attended an elite private school, but no as part of the elite.
    He was mentored by a communist.
    He was spiritually trained by a racist-socialist-hate monger.
    He partnered with a terrorist.
    He champions “social justice”.
    He’s a liar!

    And we’re surprised he shows no patriotism for a strong America?

    The Liberals thought they were getting a savior.
    All we got was a socialist with a world community perspective.

    It makes no sense. Does Obama think this feigned humility will charm the bowees? If anything they are snickering, after the meets, behind his back in utter amazement for his doltish behavior. The only conclusion I can come to is Obama is trying to show them he is on their side and is inferior to them. This really places America in a bad light, and he is doing severe damage to our status in the world.

    Over at the swamp, they’re getting their panties in a wad over this:

    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee identifies ten (10) key public policy positions for the 2010 election cycle, which the Republican National Committee expects its public officials and candidates to support:

    (1) We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill;

    (2) We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run healthcare;

    (3) We support market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;

    (4) We support workers’ right to secret ballot by opposing card check;

    (5) We support legal immigration and assimilation into American society by opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants;

    (6) We support victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by supporting military-recommended troop surges;

    (7) We support containment of Iran and North Korea, particularly effective action to eliminate their nuclear weapons threat;

    (8) We support retention of the Defense of Marriage Act;

    (9) We support protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by opposing health care rationing and denial of health care and government funding of abortion; and

    (10) We support the right to keep and bear arms by opposing government restrictions on gun ownership; and be further

    RESOLVED, that a candidate who disagrees with three or more of the above stated public policy position of the Republican National Committee, as identified by the voting record, public statements and/or signed questionnaire of the candidate, shall not be eligible for financial support and endorsement by the Republican National Committee; and be further

    RESOLVED, that upon the approval of this resolution the Republican National Committee shall deliver a copy of this resolution to each of Republican members of Congress, all Republican candidates for Congress, as they become known, and to each Republican state and territorial party office.

    They’re calling it a “Puity Test” and Chucky has the gall to headline it “GOP Purity Purge-a-Palooza”. Funny, that, particularly considering purging seems to be his new hobby.

    What’s the problem here? I don’t see a single thing here I disagree with; these are pretty basic and traditional principles of of the GOP.

    And that seems to be the modus operandi over there. Never debate your opponent, but hit them with invective while refusing to allow them to put on a case. It is the internet equivilent of putting our hands over your ears and shouting “La, la, la I can’t hear you!” So much for the “Web site that fact-checks your ass”.

    Okay, 1.0, so people who question AGW and the studies saying it exists are deniers who are ignoring what is plainly there but no one can even post connections to e-mails showing a group of AGW researchers engaged in “questionable research practice”.

    Lawmakers Probe Climate Emails

    Investigators are focusing on the correspondence of White House Science Adviser John Holdren, he said. Dr. Holdren, a point man for the Obama administration on climate change, sent one of the hacked emails. In the 2003 email, Dr. Holdren, then at the Woods Hole Research Center in Woods Hole, Mass., defended research by Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University, a scientist who believes global warming is man-made and who also sent some of the hacked emails.

    In the parade of nations that opens the Olympic games, flag-bearers would dip their country’s flag while passing the host nation’s representatives. In 1908, the American flag bearer didn’t, saying “This flag dips for no earthly king.” Of course, leftist scholars scramble to poo-poo this by reporting that it did dip three times in the ’20s and ’30s, and claiming the original motivation was racism. But the idea behind it, that Americans recognize no authority over us, even our own government, because “the people” rule themselves, remains. And this of course drives leftists nuts. They claim we are arrogant, rude, and any other bad spin they can hurl at the act of not bowing our flag before the kings of other nations. Nonetheless, and despite the intentions of some leftist American athletes, the traditions remains.

    All that work for nuthin’ if our leader is literally bowing and scraping.

    Obama is Mr. Collins from Pride And Prejudice. He is a mix of preening self-worth and toad-eating obsequiousness.

    @ snork:
    Sure, knowing the truth won’t change the small stuff. It’s the long-run effect of spending billions on “science” and rather than getting technological progress that benefits mankind, we instead get propaganda meant to promote totalitarianism.

    If we’re going to change that (and I argue we must) we must hold up every lie we are told and say “this is a lie”. We must take every case where they’ve lied and say to them “This is a lie. Here is why it’s a lie. Here are the negative consequences of your lies. Here is how you perpetrated this lie.”

    I’m not even completely convinced that there aren’t problems with too much CO2. but the sheer dishonesty is the most dangerous part of the whole thing. I’d rather live in a world with climate problems than one with totalitarians calling the shots.

    OT,

    this is where rationed health care will take us:

    Clinic with two doors, a symbol of two-tier care
    One side is for patients with insurance, the other for those who pay up front

    NEW YORK -- In America, you get what you pay for. Those who pay more get better service. That’s the way it is in restaurants, and in health care, too.

    But imagine a restaurant with one kitchen, one chef, but two doors and two price lists. That’s the model of health care that some doctors are practicing.

    In New York City, msnbc.com heard of doctors locating their practices on corners, so they can have one door where they take insurance and another door offering services for patients who pay cash up front for each procedure.

    We visited one of these clinics with two doors, to see how it works. The result is a glimpse into a two-tiered system of health care, a system that could be coming to a street corner near you.

    This is the future for everyone if the Donks get their way. With them being the ones getting good care and the rest of us, well, not so good care. it’ll help diffeientiate between the Important People and their slaves.

    Sparkman picked his mark (the right wingers) thinking that it would discourage any deeper investigation into whether it was a suicide. Play on common themes in the media and hope law enforcement doesn’t follow the money trail (which they do in cases like this precisely because of the possibility of fraud; and certainly the insurers will do that as well).

    I’m happy to know this wasn’t a murder by an extreme right nutjob. I don’t think it was unfair to discuss whether it was, though, since Sparkman apparently planted evidence specifically to create that impression.”

    And you fell for it

    This is what we’ll expect at the NYC trial.

    Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.

    The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral’s mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

    Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named “Objective Amber,” told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

    Does this make sense to you?

    Surging greenhouse gas emissions: Global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels in 2008 were nearly 40% higher than those in 1990. Even if global emission rates are stabilized at present –day levels, just 20 more years of emissions would give a 25% probability that warming exceeds 2oC. Even with zero emissions after 2030. Every year of delayed action increase the chances of exceeding 2oC warming.

    @ snork:

    And 2C is a magic trip number exactly why?

    I don’t know why.

    Here is an interesting article about rising sea level:

    quote:

    The one thing that is the most certain about climate change, is that no matter what happens, we’ll have to adapt. In fact, even if the climate doesn’t change a lick, adaptations will take place, aimed at improving our overall health and welfare by either better protecting us from, or taking better advantage of, the prevailing climate conditions. Such has always been the case, and such always will be.

    This is something that global warming alarmists either fail to understand, or fail to acknowledge.

    Consider the dire warning that anthropogenic climate change is going to lead to a global food crisis. This scenario is predicated upon the “dumb farmer scenario” in which agriculturists around the fail to respond to changing climate conditions, and instead hold on to old, failing ways, as the climate changes around them. The “dumb farmer” scenario, should more aptly be termed the “dumb forecaster” scenario, because such an assumption illustrates a glaring disconnect between theory and reality. People adapt to change.

    snip

    Titus’s team categorized all the dry land along the East Coast that is within 1 meter of sea level into four categories—developed, intermediate (likely to be developed), undeveloped, and protected from development. The first two categories were considered land-use types that would be largely protected from sea level rise by human intervention—raising of the land, or holding back the sea. These categories make up about 60% of the low-lying coastal land area between Florida and Massachusetts.

    The remaining 40% of the low-lying land area is potentially flooded by rising oceans at some point in time. This is considered good by Titus et al. because it allows for natural processes to respond to rising sea levels (i.e., letting ecosystems migrate inland). But only about one-quarter of it is currently protected by conservation requirements. The other 3/4th (or 30% of the total land area within 1 meter of sea level) is currently unprotected. Titus et al. would like to see as much of this unprotected land as possible left alone (or moved into conservation).

    @ Nevergiveup:

    That story seems like something that should have been released on April Fools Day.

    The Navy is seriously planning to court martial 3 SEALs for punching a terrorist in the mouth?

    After reading the whole story, I have a feeling I know what went down in this case. It says that the guy complained to Iraqi authorities after he was turned over to them. The Iraqis then complained to US officials.

    Since an official complaint was lodged by the Iraqis, the Navy couldn’t just blow them off, so word was sent to their chain of command to slap them on the wrist (hence the Article 15s), so they could say that those responsible had been appropriately punished.

    The SEALs involved decided that they weren’t in the mood for being punished for doing their jobs, so they demanded to be tried by court martial, as is their right under the UCMJ.

    Whether they’re ultimately convicted or not, the Navy is going to come out of this looking stupid.
