Obama: Values Will Shield US From Terror

By Wyatt Earp | May 23, 2009

navy-gradsHe’s got to be kidding. Upholding our values will shield us from terrorism? Is the president snorting cocaine again?

Personally, I would rather the American military industrial complex and the brave men and women of our armed forces protect me and my family from terror. And make no mistake: Obama wants that, too.

Or do you think his oversized limousine is made of “values” instead of armor?

President Barack Obama Friday warned America risked its security when it compromised its values, seeking support for his bid to sketch a new legal framework for anti-terror policies.

This argument, more than any other, really grinds my gears. Terrorists did not attack America and its allies because of a Abu Ghraib and waterboarding, you dope! Terrorists attacked America specifically because they despise our freedom, Mr. President. Get that through your thick, armor-plated skull.

Obama used the backdrop of the US Naval Academy graduation ceremony to argue that founding US ideals must guide the future battle against terrorism, a day after trying to quell raging debate over Guantanamo Bay in a major speech.

Oh by all means, let’s play by the rules while terrorists behead our citizens, and attack our cities. We cannot seem like the “bad guy” to the rest of the world. Frak the rest of the world. The POTUS should be looking out for number one.

“We uphold our fundamental principles and values not just because we choose to, but because we swear to — not because they feel good, but because they help keep us safe,” Obama told 30,000 graduating navy cadets and family members.

“When America strays from our values, it not only undermines the rule of law, it alienates us from our allies, it energizes our adversaries and it endangers our national security and the lives of our troops.” (H/TBreitbart)

There’s nothing like slamming your own country during a commencement speech at the United States Naval Academy!

Obama’s speechwriters really need to start fact checking before sending our the Teleprompter-in-Chief. Yes, America was founded on rock-solid – and Judeo-Christian – ideals. Don’t think for one minute that the Founding Fathers didn’t get their hands dirty when need be, though. George Washington executed some of his own troops at Valley Forge. Thomas Jefferson sent the United States to war against the Barbary Pirates because they threatened American interests at sea. And do I even need to bring up the Founders’ positions on the American Indians?

I swear to God, this guy acts like he would rather be president of any country other than America.

    He’s a fraud. Plain and simple, a fraud.

    Not one of the scum the US holds in detention are protected by ANY provision of the Geneva Conventions written in any year. None of them were the legal combatants of a sovereign government, wore a uniform, or swore any kind of a legal oath to support any such government.

    We could have, had we a mind to, executed every one of them on the battle field without recrimination. However, we again took the moral high ground.

    Torture, my ass. Torture is for entertainment purposes. Or, if you prefer, Sadism.
    On the other hand, if I reasonably believe a bad guy is party to, or has actionable information on a plan to murder my fellow citizens, I will without hesitation use whatever means at my disposal to obtain that information. For the simple reason that I value my fellow citizen’s lives more important than the bad guy’s. And when I have what I need, I’ll return him from whence he came. And declare to the world how I came by the intel.

    Evidently POTUS forgot to get rid of his imaginary childhood friends. Guess he never hear Peter Paul and Mary sing Puff the Magic Dragon..”Giant’s rings and dragon’s wings, make way for other toys”. I personally think he has been talking to “Ommpa Loompa from La La Land”. Oh well as long as they..feeeeel trumps life itself.

    Our rainbow shield and unicorn response force make us immune to all kinds of attacks. Just not non-imaginary ones.

    Values that BO does not understand will protect us in the future as they have protected us in the past.

    Duty, Honor, Country

    Well what did you expect from someone who has never been taught “Real” values? Exactly where and how much was he taught in his k thru 8 years? The real story..NOT THE BIG “O” STORY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE BIO.. His High school 9-12 were in Indonesia; I bet he got a lot of U.S. civics and history from those folks. The followers of Muhammad are in firm control, and you can bet what they teach about the U.S. is not printable here. Lo and behold he went to Harvard..I wonder how he got in there????. What were his grades and what did he take there? These things are under lock and key, never to be disclosed until 50 years after his death…I wonder if he took Constitution History in any course..Any bets? By the way,as a side bar, Constitution History is a required course to be taken (and passed) by any Officer of the United States Military who may be advanced to Flag Rank..This is any General (Army,Navy.or Air Force).This of course must be approved by Congress, before you can become a General…His values are not mine or most likely yours be any yardstick or measuring device to wish to use.. Prove me wrong on anything I have just written ..Thank you for reading this…….!!!

    You have to wonder what was in the minds of the Naval Academy, Class of 2009 with this speach. I do. Because in the next year or so, these men and women will be in the Fleet, doing the job of keeping the Republic safe. With a CinC like the “annointed one”, these kids are going to have a rough go of it. It will be jimmy carter all over again. I know, I was on active duty then.
    As for said CinC, there appears to be a short between the headsets when it comes to his own country.
    As for values, the pipsqueak doesn’t have anywhere near the values that these young men and women have, nor the character. The age difference between me and the CinC may only be seven plus years but it is more like an entire generation. The boy has alot to learn.
