When it comes to the Ukraine-Russia crisis, two things are for sure.
First, it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States, our resources, our national security or our economy.
Second Obama, the neo-cons and other war-mongering politicians are perfectly willing to send YOUR children, not their children, off to die in this conflict.
Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are threatening sanctions (which are an act of war) against Russia. When discussing how to carve up the post-democratic Ukrainian nation in a way that would best benefit Obama’s hunger for power, Obama's Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, said "F*** the E.U."
That just highlights the low lifes that are on Obama’s foreign policy team. Read more about how Obama’s threats to Russia can be detrimental to the United States.
Do not be fooled by Mr. Putin's apparent backpedaling. Russia by treaty is allowed to have 25,000 troops stationed in Ukraine. He now only has 16,000. Russia also has a long-term lease in Ukraine's port of Sevastopol to provide its Black Sea fleet direct access to the Mediterranean. That is the reason why Russia feels threatened. Putin is only protecting what Russia already rightfully owns.
Obama’s reaction with overt threats of war is unfathomable. Unless it is, the identical and irrational urge that compelled his warmongering in Syria.
It is obvious that a war with Russia would be disastrous for the entire world. In addition, allowing Obama to send our troops into Russia could be dangerous here at home. Obama could use that as an excuse to declare martial law, suspend future elections and confiscate weapons. Obama could use a war with Russia to do what previous tyrants such as Mao and Pol Pot did and declare himself dictator for life.
Some think that it is far-fetched that Obama would launch a war with Russia just so he could suspend future elections and stay in office. The same people also did not believe that Obama was trying to push the US into the Syrian civil war.
Remember, the Washington Post and other presstitute media outlets are now calling for an end to presidential term limits. In 2012, Governor Bev Perdue (D-NC) called for a suspension of the elections to benefit Obama.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) addressed this concern in a committee meeting in December when he asked, "If [Obama] can fail to enforce immigration laws, can he fail to enforce election laws?"
Moreover, if Russia stops using the US dollar in its international commercial transactions, including its gigantic sales of gas and petroleum, as it threatened to do yesterday, our US economy would plunge disastrously. Our markets would go into chaos, with unknowable and disastrous results.
This is the real reason why Obama wants to get the USA into a war with someone - anyone - whether it is Syria or Russia or even China.
Obama knows that during wartime, past presidents have abused their power and suspended the Constitution. He wants this excuse so that he can do the same, only ten times worse.
In Obama's mind, anything that weakens, threatens or endangers America, as a nation, will benefit Islam and his push for Sharia law. That is why Obama is willing to escalate a crisis in Ukraine even though it has nothing to do with America. See how you can help stop Obama’s efforts to intensify this adversity in Ukraine here.
This is exactly the reason he wanted to send American soldiers to Syria a few months ago - to overthrow the Assad regime with a Muslim Brotherhood regime. Just recall the $9 billion in cash aid he gave directly to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
The government should be focused on fixing potholes, shoring up Social Security for our seniors and defending our shores from millions of illegal aliens coming here to take our jobs and birthright. Instead, Obama wants to get us into another war we cannot afford so that he can expand his own power.
Obama is exactly the type of tyrant that the Founding Fathers of America feared the most. The Founders understood that no President should be allowed to expand a standing army or war powers, because it would only lead to tyranny. They based this belief on Deuteronomy 17:16, "He (the king) shall not multiply horses to himself."
This is why, under our Constitution, the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces and Congress controls the purse strings for the military (Article 1, Section 8).
Obama, just as previous dictators have done, wants to send your sons and daughters off to die in unnecessary wars that have nothing to do with us.
He wants to steal your firearms, YOUR right to freedom of speech, and your right to religion - even putting home-schooling parents in jail!
War with Russia will accomplish nothing for you and your family, other than raising your taxes and possibly costing the lives of your family members. However, it will give Obama just the excuse he needs to suspend the Constitution.
This is the same nonsense that came from war-mongering Democrat politicians in the 1960s when troops were sent to Viet Nam to enter combat in that stupid war.
Fortunately, we still have some politicians left today with some common sense and we need to reach out to them right now.
