Many of us already knew this was a bad decision from the start. Sadly, the President must fulfill his promises to the sheeple of this nation. So here we are, the President is not only about to embark on this journey, he is also entering into a very dangerous situation. Read why.
As Written By Allen B. West:
I’ve postulated the best way for President Barack Obama to maintain his “campaign promise” to shut down the unlawful enemy combatant detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba would be to turn it over to Castro. Now we’ve seen President Obama declare normalization of relations with Cuba and open up diplomatic relations with the island nation.
This is still a Cuba where you can be imprisoned, and potentially executed, for speaking out against the government. This is still a Cuba that harbors criminals who fled from the United States, refusing to extradite them. If we are indeed in a state of normal relations with Cuba, then the special “wet foot, dry foot” asylum rule should be terminated. Reports are now that Cubans, fearing such, are crossing over into South America and blazing a trail through Central America, Mexico and then into the United States — why not, seems everyone else is.
Now, we’ll hear the truism that the definition of insanity is to continue doing the same thing and expect different results — agreed. But ask yourselves, what exactly has Cuba done to evidence it’s changing? Once again, President Obama is so willing to say he did something no one else has done that he’ll surrender the moral high ground. Case in point, the Iranian nuclear agreement, which has been so severely violated that it’s as Hitler said to Chamberlain, “it is nothing but a piece of paper”; sadly, Chamberlain thought he had an agreement that would mean “peace in our time.” This is what happens when you send sheep to do business with wolves — they get eaten. I’m quite sure Obama’s acolytes and loyal disciples would decry Richard Nixon going to China; yep well, Obama also can claim — like Nixon — to be a rather imperial president.
And to think, Nixon resigned over a “breaking and entering” crime. Well, President Obama’s “rap sheet” against the Constitution is quite distinguished.
As reported by Fox News:
President Obama said Thursday he’ll raise human rights issues and other U.S. concerns with Cuban President Raul Castro during a history-making visit to the communist island nation.
The brief visit in mid-March will mark a watershed moment in relations between the U.S. and Cuba, making Obama the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on the island in nearly seven decades. While in the country, Obama plans to meet with groups advocating for change in Cuba, a condition the president had laid out publicly for such a trip.
“We still have differences with the Cuban government that I will raise directly,” Obama wrote on Twitter in announcing the visit. “America will always stand for human rights around the world.”
Cuban Foreign Trade Minister Rodrigo Malmierca, on a visit to Washington, told The Associated Press that Obama’s visit is good news for Cuba.
“The president will be welcomed,” he said in Spanish.”
Let me remind you of a few rather recent occurrences that lead me to believe Obama’s rhetoric and meetings will mean nothing. China’s President Xi Xinping was given the royal treatment — state dinner, gun salute — and pledged there would be no militarization of the man-made islands China’s constructed in the Spratly Archipelago in the South China Sea — oops. China this week not only emplaced aircraft landing strips on these islands, it’s deployed surface-to-air missiles.
And it was Obama who so lovingly stretched out his hand to the rabid dog Ayatollahs in Iran. And even our Secretary of State John Kerry heaped lofty praise upon the Iranians for their tender care of our ten captured Sailors. I think we’ve all seen the videos enough to make us sick to our stomachs.
