All through the Obama administration, we’ve heard the president praise his own policies as if he were the first guy to ever have an idea about well, anything.
He says he has the best foreign policy, the best domestic policy, the best race relations policy, the best policy towards Iranian nukes, and yet all we’ve really seen is one disaster after another being played by the lame, I mean, mainstream media, as the most wonderful statesmanship they’ve ever seen.
Sometimes it make you wonder if the media lives on the same planet as the rest of us!
When president Obama went on TV and stated that America is safer and more secure than it was 8 years ago, Colonel Oliver North, a military man with some actual experience other than bragging about his own abilities, went to Facebook to give us and Obama a little lesson in how the real world operates.
From Colonel North’s Facebook page:
Please forgive my error in posting I would be on Fox News Saturday afternoon & Sunday morning to give you my take on Obama’s claim that, “America is safer and more secure that it was 8 years ago.”
My apologies. I screwed up. It didn’t happen. So, instead, here are my North Points you would have heard had I been on air:
Obama says: “THE USA is stronger & more respected than 8 years ago”
On its face that statement is delusional.
Why didn’t any of the main stream media ask “where are we stronger or more respected?”
The utopian Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy is an unmitigated disaster.
Our allies no longer trust us and our adversaries don’t respect us.
Russians thumb their noses at us all over Europe and the middle east.
When Moscow hacks, Obama says he told Putin “cut it out.”
Putin delivers high-tech SAMS to Iran and the U.S. complains at the UN
Russian aggression in Ukraine and threats to Baltics are met with empty hollow threats of “consequences.”
Chinese build armed bastions & airstrips off Philippine coast and O-team whines about “ecological consequences.”
Beijing orders “snatch and grab” of U.S. Navy unmanned submersible and Obama files a diplomatic protest.
In the Middle East, the legacy of the Obama admin is genocide, a horrific refugee diaspora and a complete destabilization of the Middle East.
When Obama made his grand apology tour, utopian Arab spring speech in Cairo in June 2009, Syria had 23m people.
Today 12m people have been displaced; 400k+ Killed in Action; and 1.6m wounded.
Syrian civil war, Obama bug-out from Iraq, rise of ISIS, the IS invasion of Iraq, Al-Baghdadi’s “caliphate,” the overthrow of Gadhafi, global spread of radical Islam to 38 countries – all because of the Obama administrations weakness & failure to lead.
In South Sudan and Yemen, millions more innocent civilians are being driven from their homes and left to die.
Clear now that Obama admin – right from the start – was prepared to do whatever necessary to get a nuke deal with Tehran.
Today: Russia and Iran are calling the shots in the middle east.
In NATO ally turkey, Tayep Erdogan is dealing with Moscow and Tehran and putting NATO’s southern flank and the US base at Incerlik at risk.
Iranians, with help from North Korea and the $1.4 b Obama gave the Ayatollahs, are building nuke weapons and means of delivering them.
Obama says “we couldn’t stop it.” That’s untrue. A real POTUS would have built consensus with moderate Sunnis in Egypt, Jordan, and the UAE to stop the civil war in Syria.
Would have required U.S. logistics support & advisors but not combat troops to thwart Russian & Iranian ambitions.
But O-team didn’t want to do anything to threaten Iran nuke deal and Putin’s support for it!
Four lessons for new administration:
1. Cannot lead from behind
2. No POTUS should tell adversaries what we won’t do.
3. Diplomacy must be backed up by “force” [mil or econ] or it’s hollow.
4. Peace thru strength still works
Closing comment: just to make sure new admin has some role models for real leadership.
Let me know what you think of this edition of North Points & if you agree, please pass them along to your friends.

Please watch “War Stories,” Sunday night [8:00 PM EST] on FBN when you can see some REAL Leaders: Eisenhower, Churchill, & our Battle of the Bulge episodes.
We conservatives haven’t been impressed with anything Obama has done in two terms and if he had two more terms we still wouldn’t be impressed with him.
If anything, Obama has demonstrated his absolute ineptitude in doing much more than bowing and kowtowing to foreign leaders who should be quaking in the presence of the American president.
Donald Trump won’t make that mistake and thank goodness for that!
