If ever there was doubt about the crass nature of former President Obama , all doubt is removed when one considers his last two acts. Which one is worse it is hard to say.
The decision to allow the UN Resolution against Israel to go ahead is nothing short of scandalous. Here is a President on his way out the door putting it to one of America’s allies and siding with Palestinian groups whose commitment is the elimination of Israel; whose instigation of violence against Israel is well documented. What a classless act. There is no way available for the US to have this resolution reversed.
As if that wasn’t enough the former president saw to it that, one of the great traitors of our time as Charles Krauthammer describes her , Chelsea Manning , has 28 years removed from her prison term. Manning stole and then released to Wikileaks almost half a million military reports plus a quarter of million State Department documents. Obama is the guy who was criticizing Wikileaks just days before. Some of the secrets in those stolen documents are believed to endanger the lives of Americans and of people , locals for example in Afghanistan , who were secretly spying for the US. It has been reported that after the release of this information the Taliban went on a bit of a shooting spree targeting people who fit the description of people described in the leaked documents.
There is now word that over $200 million of American funds were released to the Palestinians on Obama’s last day. The funds had been held up by a number of Congressman. Obama went ahead and authorized the release. Although legal when congressmen object this usually holds the funds until some agreement can be reached between Congress and the White House.
The raw pettiness was on display when Obama saw fit to hold a press conference on Innaugration Day at the Airport Hanger after having partipated in the Inauguration Festivities downtown —and obviously trying to compete with those ongoing festivities for the New President.
Sure , a Chicago Community Organizer wouldn’t do that.
