Over the last eight years, Americans have been forced to question almost every action of our President.
While Barack Obama has been beloved by many Americans and liberal media outlets, he often operated in a way that betrayed their trust and hurt our country. He often moved to defy Congress and our Constitutional process by abusing executive orders (as he’s done to destroy our immigration policies).
He’s talked a big talk about equality and progress, but often put into place measures that favored Muslims and minorities, but purposefully banned white Christians. How is that equal?
Yet in the last few months of his presidency, Obama is taking actions that defy even the most basic logic. It’s clear he is trying to make the incoming presidency of Donald Trump as difficult and fraught with problems as possible.
From Allen B. West:
As reported by Defense News, “The Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier strike group chopped out of the European theater of operations Dec. 26 and headed home to Norfolk after months of operating in the Arabian Gulf and the Mediterranean, where the strike jets of Carrier Air Wing 3 flew hundreds of missions against Islamic State group targets in Syria and Iraq…
But this time, no carrier is in the Eisenhower’s wake. The relief ship, the carrier George H. W. Bush, has yet to leave Norfolk, and it’s unlikely to do so before the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, according to a Navy source.
The gap could last as long as two months, sources said, between the time the Eisenhower left the combat theater and the Bush arrives. And that gap comes at a particularly inopportune time. Numerous media reports indicate intelligence organizations and analysts are on the lookout for provocative actions by potential antagonists — in particular Russia, China, North Korea, Iran or ISIS.
Alongside actions against Israel and Russia, Obama is withdrawing our forces from the Middle East. The vacuum can embolden ISIS and other forces to act out against anyone in the region.
In the coming months we might hear about strikes by Iran, Syria, or ISIS terrorists scattered across the region, with the U.S. unable to answer back to protect our people and allies. A fitting problem for Donald Trump to deal with during his first days in office.
If you’re bitter over his win, of course you’d want that to happen.
After eight years in office, what does Obama have to show for himself? There is rapidly increasing terror around the world, racial tensions at home, and a tottering economy (not to mention soaring national debt). And now that his time is almost up, he’s only making things worse.
Quite the legacy to leave behind.
