Merkel, Mugabe, and Me

“Me”
being President Barack Obama.
Gates
of Vienna ran a perceptive piece by an anonymous Norwegian blogger, The Observer, on the ongoing and
deliberate destruction of Europe. In “Zimbabwe on the
Rhine
  he compares the conscious
dismantling of a nation by German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the conscious
and blatantly racist dismantling of Rhodesia-Zimbabwe by Robert Mugabe, its sole
“president,” “head of state,” and dictator since 1987.
He
contends that what Mugabe did to Zimbabwe was treason, and what Merkel is doing
to Germany is likewise treason. He offers a definition of treason, writing:
Because we have to be honest and call
things by their proper names, and what is going on in Europe at the moment can
only be referred to as cold hard treason.
There is no other way to describe it and still expect to be taken seriously by
any rational individual. If you do a quick Google search of the “The legal
definition of treason” you get this:
“The
betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or
purposely acting to aid its enemies”.
As the above example shows, the term
“treason” isn’t difficult to explain, nor is it hard to put into words. One
doesn’t have to be a lawyer or well-versed in the legal jargon of the judicial
system to understand its significance. It is very straightforward, and it can
be condensed down into a sentence of merely twenty-one words, which of course
means that no individual can justify their treason by maintaining that they
didn’t fully comprehend the legal definition of their crime.
Any
action that is carried out purposely and which will cause damage to or severely
weaken a nation’s ability to maintain its national security must be considered
treasonous, that is if it is carried out and condoned by one of its own
citizens.
He
comments on Robert Mugabe
and his “achievements.”
It’s hard not to draw parallels between the
current situation in Europe and what has happened to Zimbabwe under the
leadership of African dictator Robert Mugabe. When Mr. Mugabe assumed office in
the late 1970s the African nation was one of the wealthiest country on the
continent. Now, more than thirty-five years later, it is one of the poorest.
Zimbabwe has been on a steady decline towards rock bottom, due to political
incompetence, sheer stupidity and an insatiable hatred of traditional Western
values. One can of course describe Zimbabwe’s transformation by slightly
tweaking Norwegian anthropologist Thomas Hylland Erikson’s infamous quote about
white majority nations in Europe:
“Zimbabwe has successfully deconstructed
its white majority business sector, and done it so properly that it can never
be called a majority again.”
No one can accuse Mugabe of not having
deconstructed Zimbabwe and not having done so in a spectacular fashion. The
only problem is that it plunged the country into hyperinflation and severe
poverty in the process. The changes took place according to the book, and
probably according to Mugabe’s own wishes, but the policies were a complete
failure which is often the case with radical political visions proposed by
politicians who have big egos but very little common sense.
I
have discussed the treasonous depredations of Merkel in the last three columns.
Her problem is not that she has a “big ego” and “very little common sense.” Tyrannical
megalomaniacs like her too often have tiny egos that can nevertheless be
inflated to stupendous size by a coterie of less ambitious “little people” who
need something to adore and follow. They are usually little people who want to
control everything and everyone as protection against a reality they would
rather not deal with, or which contradicts their notions of what reality should
be. They fear the deflation of those egos, and reality is their worst enemy. Recall
FrontPage’s motto: “Inside every liberal is a totalitarian screaming to get
out.”
Common
sense? Their metaphysics and epistemology bar the application of “common sense”
to their politics; in fact, bars it to everything but the most banal, everyday
actions, such as fixing a meal or opening a door. Politicians like Merkel come
a dime a dozen, and some are more adept at climbing the ladder of power than
others, or just rise to the top of a pool of stagnant, scummy water from pure
interia. Their minds reside in a “higher reality” which they wish to see “work”
and which strive to impose that “reality” on everything and everyone.
On
the other hand, morons such as British Prime Minister David Cameron sense that
their “higher reality” won’t quite work and so they expend mental effort and
words to reach some kind of reconciliation between the real and their fantasy
worlds. But reality won’t budge and rapprochement between it and fantasies is
impossible.
Daniel
Greenfield, in his FrontPage article, “The
Muslim Madness of Merkel
” of October 9th, noted about Merkel, a former East
German Communist:
Merkel isn’t really an open
borders fanatic. She’s a political hack who made a tragic mistake and is
desperately trying to dump it on the rest of Europe. After originally taking
the correct line, Merkel folded and rather than admit that she made a mistake
whose implications will destroy her country, she is desperately manufacturing
one ridiculous excuse after another to defend her actions.
Her calls for sharing the
burden amount to dumping the consequences of her unilateral policy on the rest
of Europe. It’s exactly the type of behavior she condemned from Greece, only to
hypocritically practice a version of it that is far more disastrous, both from
the standpoint of security and economics.
That
echoes Obama’s snarky, talk-down-to-the-rube retort to Joe the Plumber that
higher taxes will help to “share
the wealth
.” We must share the misery and increased crime rates and costs
of the welfare state. It’s only “fair.”
Instead
of acknowledging her error, which would have meant acknowledging reality, she
would rather sacrifice her country and see it swamped with “refugees” who are
intrinsically hostile to any kind of Western society. Merkel regards the influx
of mostly Muslim males of fighting age as a boon to the economy. They will,
once they find employment, help bolster the welfare state. She has ignored numerous
statements from the invaders themselves that they travel to Germany for the
“benefits,” not for job opportunities. Greenfield writes:
Merkel claims that the
migrants “present more opportunities than risks.” What opportunities are
these exactly? Half the
Muslim “youth
” in Germany are already unemployed.  Barely a
third of Muslim
immigrants earn a living through professional employment. What
opportunities will adding millions of Muslims to the welfare rolls accomplish
except to create more jobs for the government bureaucrats who sign their
welfare checks?
Still,
no matter how wrong she is in her assessments, cogitations, or motivations, she
is still guilty of treason. Should advocates of “open borders” and a
“multicultural” Europe also be served with treason paper, such as Peter
Sutherland, head of the Global Forum on Migration and Development? He is all
for Europe becoming inundated with brown, black, and olive people who will reduce
indigenous populations of whites to a minority. The BBC reported in June of
2012 that Sutherland opined, in the House of Lords, that
The EU should “do its
best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, the
UN’s special representative for migration has said. Peter Sutherland told peers
the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming
multicultural.
Mr. Sutherland, who is
non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former chairman of
oil giant BP, heads the Global Forum on
Migration and Development
, which brings together representatives of 160
nations to share policy ideas.
He told the House of Lords
committee migration was a “crucial dynamic for economic growth” in
some EU nations “however difficult it may be to explain this to the
citizens of those states”.
All
cultures are equal, you see, and the best way to combat the envy and hatred of
Western culture by primitives tenaciously committed to their primitivism is to
bring in tens of thousands of them from failed or stagnant cultures to even
things out and to stir the ethnic pot. Then there won’t be any more envy or
hatred. Fantasy World will have been achieved. Anyone who defends “homogeneity”
is a racist, or an Islamophobe, or a skin-head Nazi.
Robert
Mugabe, on the other hand, is just a plain power-luster and killer. Read
for yourself this creature’s bloody career.  
Can
we charge Barack Obama with treason? Let us count the ways he has, with malice
aforethought, inflicted damage, pain, and suffering on America. He has at least
invited actionable impeachment.  The
Washington Monthly
in 2012 tallied up Obama’s “achievements.” Some of them
are arguably dubious in nature, others are outright fabrications. Among them
are, aside from the suicidal nuclear
deal with Iran
, which definitely poses a threat to the U.S.:

 1.
Passed Health Care Reform:
After five presidents over a century
failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act
(2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and
mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the
number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.
2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787
billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth
amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went
into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private
sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do
so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new
private-sector jobs….
4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military
forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.
5. Began Drawdown of War in
Afghanistan:

From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000,
with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary
of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.
No,
not really. We’re still in Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan. And Obama has sent U.S.
troops to Cameroon
to fight Boko Haram.
6. Eliminated Osama bin
laden:
In
2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan,
in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was
discovered.
No,
not really. It was a Navy SEAL Team that took out bin Laden, after countless
delays and the later betrayal of the Pakistani who provided the information
about where the “mastermind” of 9/11 was holed up.
7. Turned Around U.S. Auto
Industry:
In
2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans
from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity
stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009,
the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three
automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The
government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of
the GM stock it still owns increases….
Shades
of the Boeing
bailout
and other heavy duty companies. The list of companies bailed out by
Uncle Sam is about three miles long. You can view it here on the ProPublica site. Many of
the banks on the list, such as BB&T, which has a long record of rock solid
solvlency, were forced by the government to accept TARP money or face unknown
but ominous consequences.
10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a
coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air
power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and
support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was
overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were
lost.
11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011,
publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step
down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right
side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on
February 11….
Engineering
the removal of Mubarak paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over
Egypt. Dictator Morsi and his henchmen didn’t last. Obama’s executive
declaration of war on Libya and the removal of Gaddafi paved the way for the
current Muslim invasion of Europe. Should we mention Benghazi and then Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton? I think we’ve heard enough about and from her about
that ignominious episode of Scrabble Statecraft.
13. Improved America’s Image Abroad:
With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world
opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the
Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose
in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with
an average increase of 26 percent.
A laughable conclusion. Obama’s notion of improving
our image abroad is to bow to anyone who wears foreign apparel or speaks a
foreign tongue. If he presented himself before the chief dog-catcher of Buenos
Aires and the fellow wore shoulder braids and a plate of lettuce on his tunic,
he would bow with the same supine skill he displayed before the king of Saudi
Arabia and Red Chinese Party officials.
Speaking of bowing to a Major Muslim, Obama also
wishes to bring in more Muslims, many from Somalia and many “Syrian” “refugees”
and distribute them willy-nilly throughout the U.S. with the hope that they
breed like rabbits, outnumber indiginous Americans wherever they “resettle,”
and bolster the Democratic voting base. Read the report of the Refugee
Resettlement Watch here
and shiver.  Writes Ann Corcoran of RRW:
The
Obama Administration says they will resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the US
in FY 2016 which began October 1.
The
Committee for Justice
narrows down the Obama crime list to twenty-five
instances, including threatening newspaper reporters, siccing the IRS on
conservative and pro-Israel groups, kid-gloving illegal aliens from Mexico, and
virtually tearing down the fence that once controlled the invasion of the U.S.
by illegals hoping to avail themselves of our own welfare state benefits.
Obama Administration uses IRS
to target conservative, Christian and pro-Israel organizations, donors, and
citizens.
Obama
Administration uses IRS to target conservative, Christian and pro-Israel organizations,
donors, and citizens.
In an unprecedented attack on
the First Amendment, the Obama Justice Department ordered criminal
investigations of FOX News reporters for doing their jobs during the 2012
election year.
President
Obama, throughout his Presidency, has refused to enforce long-established U.S.
immigration laws. For example:
More
than 300,000 captured illegal aliens had been processed and were awaiting
deportation. But, incredibly, Obama stopped these deportations and ordered the
U.S. border patrol to release many of these illegal aliens in violation of law
and without explanation.
Congress
rejected Obama’s so called DREAM ACT – which would have granted permanent
residency to many illegal aliens. So Obama enacted his own version of the DREAM
ACT by Executive Order, thus directly defying Congress. According to Obama’s
Executive Order, illegal aliens can stay in America if they are under the age
of 30, have been in America for at least five years, are enrolled in school or
have graduated from high school, and have committed no felonies.
Obama
has refused to build a double-barrier security fence along the U.S.-Mexican
border in direct violation of the 2006 Secure Fence Act. This law requires that
“at least two layers of reinforced fencing” be built along America’s
650-mile border with Mexico. So far, just 40 miles of this fence have been
built – most of it during the Bush Administration.
President
Obama issued, in one day, 21 separate Executive Orders that attack and
undermine your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Especially
egregious is President Obama’s Executive Orders amending the ObamaCare
law to allow doctors and hospitals to investigate which patients own a gun.
This outrageous Executive Order could allow the federal government to track and
monitor law-abiding gun owners simply because they sought medical care.
But the worst thing Obama has ever done is agree to
let Iran get a nuclear bomb. This is tantamount to aiding an enemy nation that
has proclaimed again and again that it will use the bomb to defeat the U.S. and
annihilate Israel. Former presidential candidate MItt Romney, in a July 22nd Wall
Street Journal Opinion piece, “The
Calamity of Obama’s Iran Deal
,” cuts to the chase about this “bargain” deal
of Obama’s.
First, Iran is led by
suicidal, apocalypse-seeking, America-hating, Israel-denying theocratic
fanatics. If these ayatollahs have nuclear weapons, they will use them,
someday, somewhere. Iran is a major, longtime state sponsor of terrorism; its
leaders are entirely bereft of restraint, decency and respect for human life.

Second, the Obama deal
prescribes a pathway for Iran to develop nuclear weapons. The agreement’s
defenders contend that it will delay Iran’s nuclear program by 10 to 15 years
(about one half of a generation). Perhaps. But no one can say that the deal
will prevent Iran from getting the bomb….
Future generations of Americans will look
back on the Obama years with considerably less enthusiasm than do his
apologists today—the Iran nuclear deal will be added to a long list of
“iniquities” the consequences of which were visited upon them.
These Americans will still be paying interest
on the trillions of dollars of Obama debt; carrying the burdens of the millions
of illegal immigrants he welcomed; agonizing over the scourge and human tragedy
of generational poverty that this president refused to address; and lamenting
the millions of children who grew into adulthood without a competitive
education because he bowed to the teachers unions. But among all these
iniquities, the Iran deal will stand out. Iran will be a nuclear monster.
And
it will be a monster of Obama’s making. He knowingly granted the ayatollahs everything
they could ever possibly wish for, including a schedule of inspections that won’t
be really inspections, but chances for Iran to reinvent the Three Card Monte
game.

Yes,
Obama has, in just that one action out of a catalogue of high-level felonies,
imperiled the security of America, and did it with his eyes wide open.
He should be impeached and brought up on charges of treason, for he has “betrayed his own country by  waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.”

    One question that remains unanswered is: Was Obama's Iran deal a blunder? Was it an act of stupidity or naiveté? Frankly, I think it was an act of malice, for the U.S., and for Israel. I think it was a way to pressure Israel to bend, to concede, to surrender.

    Obama should be arrested and kept in Gitmo until he can do not further harm. There is no excuse to allow this hardened criminal continue as president as if he is above all law.
