John Bolton underestimates Obama
On Fox News Sunday, John Bolton said we’re losing the war against ISIS because the Obama administration is “blinded by their own ideology.” He went on to say:
I think they’re in denial. I don’t think that’s anything new. I think they’ve been in denial about the war on terror the last six plus years. They don’t want to admit we are in a war. They would rather treat it as a law enforcement matter. That is palpably wrong. I think their unwillingness to understand the nature of the ideological threats we face from the likes of ISIS paralyzes their ability to win. And we are losing. There is no doubt about it.
I have enormous respect for John Bolton, but on this I believe he is wrong.
Bolton is underestimating the very real possibility that is even more horrifying than a president in denial, which is this: Obama’s actions and inactions are all by design. And while Obama is indeed driven by his ideology, the ideology is one that is simpatico with Islam. As a result, of course, we are losing to ISIS, to Islamic terror, to jihad, to the growing caliphate, to a Middle East spiraling out of control, and to Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon.
What we see unfolding is not because Obama is unwilling to understand the reality on the ground or because he’s paralyzed as to what to do. Quite the opposite. I would suggest that Obama understands the situation quite well. And he’s all on board. There’s no paralysis, much as we might like to think so, giving ourselves a shred of hope that the country didn’t really elect a person to be president of the United States who aligns himself with evil forces that are plotting and acting against us.
I do agree with Bolton on one point. In part. He is correct that Obama does not want to go to war. But I believe that the reason is quite specific. Obama does not want to go to war against Islamic supremacism (something far greater than a war on terror, which is a phrase that minimizes the scope of what we’re up against).
The man-child sitting in the Oval Office spent his formative years in Indonesia, finds the Muslim call to prayer the sweetest sound, decided that the mission of NASA was Muslim outreach, gave his first interview as president to an Arab news station, jetted off to Cairo to give a speech, and gave the Muslim Brotherhood front-row seats as he pandered and apologized, made his first call as president to the leader of the Palestinian Authority, proclaimed on the world stage that we must not slander Islam, labeled blatant acts of jihad terror as “workplace violence,” has consistently tipped the scales in the Middle East against our allies and in favor jihadists, is importing Muslims to the United States from places like Syria at an alarming rate, is openly hostile to Israel, and is negotiating with Iran.
And that’s just for starters.
So yes, I agree with Mr. Bolton that there is an absolute ideology at work. But it is not one of denial. It is one that is actively and intentionally facilitating the growing caliphate. It is one that is willfully undermining American military might, weakening our ability to defend ourselves against the threat of Islamic jihad.
And while many say, “We are at war,” I beg to differ. Would that we were. Because while war is being waged against us, we’re not fighting back. So, no, we are not at war. We are in surrender. And that is due to the highly calculated design of our president and his administration – an administration filled with Islamic sympathizers, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood who have infiltrated every arm of our government.
The Obama administration is not blinded by its ideology. But the American people are certainly blind to it.
