In another show of weakness and sheer arrogance by President Obama, the ‘leader of the free world,’ refuses to meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the upcoming G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Obama’s admitting that U.S.-Russian relations have “hit a wall” sheds further light on the Obama administration’s weak and questionable foreign policy, and the lack of respect and contempt world leaders, like Putin, as well as that of the enemies of the United States have for Obama and his administration.
Understandably, Obama is upset that Putin has disrespected him by granted a temporary visa to alleged NSA traitor Edward Snowden, this after Obama asked that the Russian government extradite him to the U.S.
While Syria continues to burn, Obama’s threat to use U.S. Military action against the Assad regime is seen as a “red line” in the sand drawn with invisible ink, and support in the U.S. Congress for such action is anebic, at best.
“I do not support authorizing President Obama to use military force in the Syrian civil war at this time. The Obama administration has not articulated a clear objective for using military force in Syria, much less a plan to achieve that objective. This is all the more problematic given the realities of a Syrian civil war in which Assad’s dictatorship (supported by Iran and Hezbollah) is fighting so-called rebels that are populated with Sunni Islamic supremacists and Al Qaeda fighters.-Rep. Ron DeSantis
Nearly two-thirds of the Congress opposes Obama’s call for air strikes against Syria, including many staunch liberal Democratic supporters of the President, including Congressman Alan Grayson.
Grayson recently echoed what his 2014 Republican congressional opponent Jorge Bonilla said in regards to the Syrian conflict. In an interview with The National Review last week, Bonilla quoted Sarah Palin, saying that the U.S. should just let “Allah sort it out.”
During the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Mark Meadows questioned Secretary of State John Kerry about the possible use of military force against Syria.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 10-7 to authorize President Obama to use limited force against Syria.
“The Obama administration is using terminology such as ‘limited scope’ to sell this intervention to the American people. Will this action actually have any impact on the ground? Does the president’s authorization still apply if Syria transfers its weapons to Hezbollah or Iran? Secretary Kerry told the Committee that chemical weapons have been used in Syria 11 times, yet we have done nothing to this point… Secretary Kerry did not present a convincing case as to why this atrocity, over all the others, merits Congress authorizing the use of military force in another country’s civil war.”-Rep. Mark Meadows
Voting yes were Menendez; Coons; Durbin; McCain; Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Ben Cardin, D-Md.; Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.; Tim Kaine, D-Va., Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
Voting no were Udall; Murphy; Paul; James Risch, R-Idaho; Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; and John Barrasso, R-Wyo.
Meanwhile, newly elected Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey (D) took a page out of President Obama’s Senate voting record by voting “present” on the vote.-USA Today
This is not looking good for President Obama.
“While I have long argued forcefully for engagement in empowering the Syrian people, I have never supported the use of U.S. military force in the conflict. And I still don’t. I remain unconvinced that the use of force proposed here will work.”-Senator Marco Rubio (R)
