No, Not Quite the Very Lowest

Barack Obama’s Lowest Moment Yet?
"Today President Obama gave a speech at American University, urging acceptance of his nuclear deal with Iran. It was the usual exercise in deception and demagoguery, and he skated up to the edge of accusing opponents of the deal–a majority of Americans, apparently–of treason.

After some initial reminiscence about the Cold War, Obama leaped right into misrepresenting the agreement’s terms:
After two years of negotiations, we have achieved a detailed arrangement that permanently prohibits Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
The “prohibition” consists of a pious declaration by Iran which it can repudiate at any time. The agreement contains no provisions that will permanently impede Iran’s ability to acquire nuclear weapons. The provisions that (if adhered to) would materially impede Iran’s nuclear weapons program expire in no more than 15 years.

Next, the president offered up a revisionist history of the war in Iraq–a topic of dubious relevance at best:
[M]any of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.
Whereas others who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case in favor of the Iran deal–Joe Biden, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, for example. So what? Next comes a breathtaking series of lies:
I said that America didn’t just have to end that war — we had to end the mindset that got us there in the first place. It was a mindset characterized by a preference for military action over diplomacy; a mindset that put a premium on unilateral U.S. action over the painstaking work of building international consensus; a mindset that exaggerated threats beyond what the intelligence supported.
No American administration has ever preferred war to diplomacy. The war in Iraq was anything but unilateral, as more than 20 countries participated in the U.S.-led coalition. And the intelligence on Iraq’s WMDs was not exaggerated, as we know from the now-public October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate. (Nor, as we now know, was that intelligence entirely wrong.)

Obama recites Iraq’s recent history, but leaves out a key point:
Today, Iraq remains gripped by sectarian conflict, and the emergence of al Qaeda in Iraq has now evolved into ISIL. And ironically, the single greatest beneficiary in the region of that war was the Islamic Republic of Iran, which saw its strategic position strengthened by the removal of its long-standing enemy, Saddam Hussein.
Obama neglects to mention his own role: in 2011 he prematurely withdrew all American troops from Iraq, crowing that Iraq was then “sovereign, stable and self-reliant,” a fact that Vice-President Joe Biden hailed as one of Obama’s “great achievements.” Iraq was sovereign and stable but not, as military leaders warned, entirely self-reliant. It was Obama’s needless withdrawal of the last American troops that allowed Iraq to spiral toward chaos and permitted ISIS–the Islamic State in Syria–to move into Iraq. But Obama has never once in his life taken responsibility for anything.

Who is to blame for Iran’s nuclear program? Why, President Bush, of course!

When the Bush administration took office, Iran had no centrifuges — the machines necessary to produce material for a bomb — that were spinning to enrich uranium. But despite repeated warnings from the United States government, by the time I took office, Iran had installed several thousand centrifuges….

IAEA reports indicate that Iran’s Natanz facility had around 5,500 centrifuges when Obama took office, and over 15,000 by May 2015. With the Fordow facility, Iran now has around 19,000 centrifuges operating. But it’s all Bush’s fault!"
In his last term, Obama has abandoned everyone in the nation and has proceeded with his own personal agenda directly in contradiction with anyone who possibly could have been considered his constituency, with the exception of homosexuals. Even normally leftist unions have abandoned him. Blacks have been economically trampled by him. Hispanics have received impossible promises from him. Whites are racists; unborns are targets for killing and marketing their parts; Asians are discriminated against in university acceptance; the military has been purged and now looks for PC violations; NASA has been shut off from space exploration and given the directive to outreach to Muslims; the borders are now open and illegal aliens, including criminals and diseased, transported around the nation; and Iran is virtually handed the atomic bomb. The list of official abuses is too long and comprehensive to list... or even comprehend.

If there is any commonsense job for a president to pursue, Obama can be guaranteed to pursue the diametric opposite. AT least he is predictable.

He has attacked his own media-sycophants. He has ignored Congress. He has threatened the Supreme Court. He has used his vast bureaucracy to attack citizens due to their political opinions. He has trafficked working weapons to drug lords in Mexico. His head of the justice system installed racists; his Secretary of State will face criminal charges, and left the middle east in the hands of Boko Haram and ISIS.

But the would-be emperor has only 18 months left to continue his destruction of the USA. What will he do next? What is the purpose of military operations in American cities?

He is not insane; he is merely evil. Even Democrats do not support him wholeheartedly any more, and no longer scream "racism" at those who openly disagree with him. But he will not be removed; his budget will not be cut. He will not be stopped during these last months of his personal war on America and the (Christian) western nations.

If this be treason, let us make the most of it.
