Our Enemy is now our Friend… Can it get any more bizarre?
According to the Washington Examiner, the President of the United States may have just committed the biggest war crime in the history of the Presidency. According to the Examiner, President Obama just waved a federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups so he can start arming opposition groups fighting in Syria.
Besides the fact that he has no authority to do so, who he will be arming is just incomprehensible. By all accounts the rebel groups in Syria are the same Al Qaeda terrorists who we’ve been fighting for the last ten years in Afghanistan.
The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would “waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction.”
Those two sections expressly prohibit sending weapons to countries described in section 40(d): “The prohibitions contained in this section apply with respect to a country if the Secretary of State determines that the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism,” Congress stated in the Arms Control Export Act.
“For purposes of this subsection, such acts shall include all activities that the Secretary determines willfully aid or abet the international proliferation of nuclear explosive devices to individuals or groups or willfully aid or abet an individual or groups in acquiring unsafeguarded special nuclear material,” the law continues.
The White House is claiming the President of the United States has the authority to waive the restrictions if he “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States.” But in this case, the President himself has admitted that Syria poses no National Security risk to our country. And even if it did, does that mean we should be arming our enemy – an enemy who has killed thousands upon thousands of out troops in Afghanistan?
This isn’t Left vs Right Issue, it’s an Issue of Arming our Enemies….
Radio talk show host Glenn Beck said on his talk show this morning that what the President was doing is nothing short of treason and called for the Presidents immediate impeachment. But this problem goes so so much deeper than just one man. We have an entire government who no longer respects the will of the people, but the public just keeps voting these criminals back into office.
As we’ve pointed out numerous times in the past, when it comes to going to war with other countries it seems both sides of the political aisle are always ready to roll. The Republican establishment, mainly Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain are in 100% support of arming these terrorist groups.
Remember, these are the same politicians who last year argued for the President’s ability to conduct drone strikes on American Soil if they felt an American Citizen was aiding a terrorist organization. That same group who wanted the ability to assassinate American Citizens without a trail, is now pushing to arm the same enemy that they used last year to condone drone strikes on American Soil.
Something just isn’t right.
People really need to start paying attention to what’s going on in this country. We have a Federal government who seems to have declared war on the American people by militarizing local police forces and buying up billion of rounds of Ammo for homeland use. Now that same government is arming our enemy, the same enemy who has killed thousands of our own military over the last ten years. Does this make sense to anyone? Does anyone even care?
While Americans sit on their fat asses watching reality T.V.: Patriotism has been declared extremist ideology, Americans are asked to accept gun control in America (while our government sends guns to terrorists), and our Constitution has all but been declared null and void.
When the federal government releases training manuals on how to rid the military of patriotic members, claiming that anyone who agrees with the founders is an extremist, you really have to wonder what the hell is happening to our country.
